So, I was right. On the one hand I'm not terribly surprised that I had met him before, but, on the other I find it a little hard to believe that a person could change so much. I guess it's possible over time if given strong motives, but if a considerable amount of time has passed since then (and it must have been a while ago, a change like that doesn't occur overnight), it may already be too late for me to stop Van. I really don't even want to consider that, but if someone from the Outer Lands is still alive, then... I really don't know. There isn't much use in speculating without more conclusive information. I'll have to wait.

I suppose there are other ways of looking at it, though. For instance, at least I made it to the Outer Lands. Van was always against me going there. I'm not really sure why, but he was adamant about me staying in Yulia City. He didn't even want me to attend training school in Daath, come to think of it.

Still, I did promise to return Luke to Baticul. Even if it's not my fault that he ended up in Memento Eden, it's still my responsibility to get him back home.

Fay, could I have a word with you? It has to do with what we were discussing at the shrine a few weeks ago. There's no rush.

It seems like the island kept its promise about returning memories to those who attended the Tanabata ball. Somehow, I feel a little relieved...

nightcrossed: (What Was That?)
[It's a few minutes after midnight, dark, and hardly a creature is stirring. Tear is sitting on the floor outside of her apartment room with her arms wrapped loosely around her knees.]

...that wasn't...? couldn't really be a...

[Tear frowns.]

...could it?

[Tear is on break at the cafe. She's out back practicing strikes and blocks with a broom since the manager is making her leave her weapons at home these days (they scare off the costumers, he says). Some of her hair is falling out of her ponytail at this point, and she'll doubtless have to fix it before the manager allows her to go back to waiting tables.

Fighting air isn't quite the same as sparring with Legretta, but at least she can relearn the motions, and at least the movement interrupts her thinking about what Van might be doing back in her own world.]

(I wonder how I can get back. Are hunting down suspicious objects and being present when the island does something strange going to be enough?)


(Van. What are you up to? Who else have you dragged into this?)


(I don't understand. Is this "Score" really such a terrible thing? What is it exactly and why do you hate it so much?)


(I'm so sure there are people around me suffering right now. Rena seemed sad... I need to do something.)

[Swings harder. The motions yanks at the muscles in her arms and forces her to stop.]

All of this is starting to make my head hurt. People are becoming child versions and elder versions of themselves? It's just a little peculiar, but I suppose it could be much worse.

I apologize to everyone who had to put up with my younger self last week. I'm not sure how you all did it, to be frank...

Nevertheless, I've finally obtained a fairly clear sense of direction for a change. When I was little, I apparently made a promise to my brother that I'd find a way to join the Oracle Knights. I'm not sure if I ever kept this promise, but I am capable of controlling seventh fonons (another topic that I'm still fuzzy on, unfortunately), which if nothing else, can be used for healing purposes. I don't seem to be able to control them reliably yet, but perhaps with some practice they could be made useful.

The other thing I've remembered is that the place where I grew up is very different from the way things are in Memento Eden. In the Qliphoth there was no sunshine, and very few plants grew. The only flowers I can even remember were a species that my brother replanted near our home. I believe they were called "selenias". Beyond Yulia City, the world that I knew is covered by a misty substance called "miasma" that stretches out as far as the eye can see like a toxic ocean. How did anyone even manage to survive in a place like that?

Oh well. Mr. Manager? I'm sorry for disappearing. I'll be working extra hard this week to make up for my absence. Rena, I hope you weren't stuck waitressing by yourself...

So, at first I was really scared when I found myself in the Outer Lands, but I've made a lot of friends already! I hope Van doesn't get too mad at me. I wonder if he's really looking for me. He's busy, so maybe he hasn't even seen that I'm gone yet.

I thought perhaps maybe this was Daath, but it isn't. It's called "Memento Eden". I wonder where that is? I've never heard of it before.

Even though I love my new friends very much, only one person seemed to know who Van was. He said he was my brother's student, but he was too busy to help me or something like that. I still don't know his name, so if this is rude, I'm really sorry! His name was Sir Luke. I guess it's okay if Van doesn't come find me yet, because we're all going to work together to find a way back to our homes and beat the mean kidnappers, right? Does anyone know who the mean people are? I haven't seen anyone like that yet.

I always thought being kidnapped and being lost was a bad thing, but this is really fun! I met Rika and Mokona and Nall and lots of other people! And then I got my "sebbenth fomoms" to work again when I found a little boy in trouble! He said because I was nice and healed him that I might be an angel. I'm not sure what an angel is exactly, but they seem really wonderful! I wouldn't mind being one if I could still join the "Orickles" and be a knight like Van! ♥ Because I want to help people in trouble no matter what!! Come to think of it... Maybe the healers are angels? Maybe I should have gone to see them sooner instead of playing in the apartments.

Wuahh... there's so much I don't know about the Outer Lands...

But I really want to pick flowers to give Van when I go home, just like Rika suggested! It'd be really fun to play in the grass and sing and look at the pretty flowers. If Van was here he'd sing to me, but I don't remember how it goes... Does anyone know any songs?

(Mun notes: Obligatory cafe post it is. Tear has used the remaining cherry blossoms to try some new recipes which will be served at the cafe for the next week or so. We've got the sakura tea, sakura tea soup (it's a dish with vegetables and rice; adding hot water/tea causes the cherry blossoms that decorate it to bloom, it sounded pretty neat) and sakura mochi (rice cakes). Google them! For the less brave there's a cherry blossom cake that doesn't actually have the flowers cooked into it, but they decorate it for effect. Nothing too complicated, although I can't guarantee the taste - that's up to you. Next time we will be returning to the use of fruit (strawberries and apples, preferably) thanks to suggestions from Mokona and Cooro. And because Tear likes apples (and milk). Apple ice cream maybe? Overachiever. Pfff.)

[So where is she now? Tear's already in her maid waitress uniform about an hour before opening time. The lights are on and the front door is unlocked already. She's sitting at a table near the windows, polishing her weapons and watching her birds twittering around outside. Yes, her birds. (They're not really hers, they're wild birds, but that won't stop her from looking out for them since they're cute.) She appears content, and is probably even smiling a little as she watches them. Basically she's distracted.]
