...perhaps I should catch up on my reading. I don't know a great deal about gatherings like this.

["Trust us"? Tear thinks not, but she isn't taking any chances. She slipped the note into her pocket, took it off to an out-of-the-way place near the shrine, tacked it into the grass with one of her knives, and set about destroying it with a fonic arte.]

That should be sufficient.

[Returns to her self-imposed shrine chores, since there's no one else around to do it, plus her garden needs weeding.]

((2% from event on Shurrey Hill and the preceding conversation with Teodoro = lots and lots of technobabble. 1% remaining, 33% total used.))

((OOC: Get ready for some major filter abuse and tl;dr. The margins, additionally, are scattered with clusters of notes from her combat trainings and teachings with various people written in a small script which is nearly impossible to read without the aid of a magnifying glass.

There's notes about adjusting her aim, strategies for dealing with enemies attacking from the air, approximations about how long it takes for fonons to gather in one area, and ideas for how to test the limits of hyperresonance. If anyone wants to arpee any of this stuff out, poke me, otherwise I'll just assume it's happened/been happening all along to avoid plot holes. Because they make driving dangerous.))

As for the ceremony or festival...? at the shrine, for Fay's sake I hope it goes well, but I can't help wondering just how wise it is to try to catch the island's attention. Enough strange things take place without trying to coax them out.

And why does everything seem to involve dancing?
Singing I could understand, but dancing... I'm not very good at it.
[/Private.]

Fay's planning an event of some kind at the Hakurei Shrine. It'd be nice if everyone could give him support, since he seems to have been working diligently to prepare for it.

...

[And the last sentence is completed scratched out. Feel free to imagine what it might have said. Or ask, not that you'd get a straight answer. Actually, guess right on the first try and I'll totally bake cookies for you.]

Right. The flowers need watering, and I should probably sweep up the premises if I have time left over.

[Tear was whittling away some of her pre-work hours. Having hiked up the trail to the Hakurei Shrine, she now stood over a plot of land to the side of the building that had previously been occupied by nothing much more than a muddy hillside and assorted prairie grasses and weeds. Now there were clusters of new green shoots poking up here and there. With some tending and a little time, it seemed like they'd continue to grow and eventually bloom. Tear by no means had a green thumb, but they seemed healthy enough. (Then again, if they started wilting, she could have cheated and used her healing artes on them.)

Tear dug around for a bucket and proceeded to fetch some water for her garden. Her spirits were fairly high and the morning air was doing her a lot of good. She didn't have much musical knowledge to work with, but she didn't expect anyone to bother her here, since it didn't seem like the shrine had ever attracted that many visitors. Therefore she allowed herself to sing softly as she worked - nothing more than a series of wordless notes - without concerning herself over whether or not she'd be overheard.]


((OOC: If you guys missed it, she got some selenia flower seeds as her item. They bloom at night, just so you know.))

Well, that wasn't so bad. I could have done without sweeping, but learning the proper way to prepare tea was interesting enough. I never knew it was such a complicated process or that I had been doing it completely wrong all this time. It's a little embarrassing... I guess I'm not very graceful...

[Tear conveniently leaves out the part about her shoulders, arms, and fingers being stiff from working all day. You might not want to touch her. (You probably shouldn't either way.)]

I've been thinking on things again. It seems like some of the residents are trying to make a new life on this island and others are clinging to the past they can't remember...

What do I want to do? There doesn't seem to be a right or best decision.

Do I want to search for yesterday's me?
Or do I want to simply start over?
Or do I want to incorporate aspects of both of those people?

The problem is not knowing who I was or what I did. There's the possibility that I won't even approve of her (ie. the person I was) after meeting new people and experiencing different things here. At the same time, however, I don't think I can abandon her. Not only is she directly related to the person I am now (...I mean, she must be, logically speaking...), but there's also the fact that I will inevitably remember who she was and what was important to her. As for both? I don't know. I have no desire to contradict myself and I feel that's entirely possible. Then again, I've probably said hypocritical things already.

I have to wonder if people are waiting for me back home. I keep dreaming about Van. What would my brother be doing if he was in my situation, and has he even noticed my disappearance? (Do we even disappear?)

There's not much point in worrying about it, but it's difficult to ignore questions like this.

Anyway.

Mokona suggested that I try a fruit dish next. I was leaning towards pineapples or strawberries since I experimented with apples last time. Does anyone remember any of their favorite dishes from home?

Also, it seems like a family of birds have made a nest in one of the hanging baskets outside the cafe. They're really lively and seem to be singing all the time. I think the eggs will probably hatch soon. (I'm no expert, but...) Please be mindful of them if you visit the cafe, since I don't want them to abandon their eggs. I bet the chicks will be really fluffy and adorable. <3

How does a water gun fight lead to something like this? Yes, I realize I lost, but I didn't actually think anyone was going to take advantage of forcing the losers into becoming their slaves. As a result, Reimu had Aya kidnap drag Luke and myself to the Hakurei Shrine and ordered us to be "shrine maidens" for the day.

I really wish I were kidding; I'm not even exaggerating.

The most ridiculous part is she's convinced I'm Luke's girlfriend. How does she even figure that? I don't suppose there's anything wrong with Luke, but half the time I end up arguing with him. Well, whatever.

[And she's still brooming the pathway leading to the shrine, distant, silent and none too happy about her situation.]

((OOC: Here's a bigger shot of my quickie drawing of Tear in the miko outfit. I was too lazy to scan it. I'll probably do this again for other outfits/items my characters get/have. Maybe. MAYBE.))
