Wh-why do I keep getting forced into strange costumes? This is getting ridiculous...

[Tear takes a few steps down the pathway towards the library and no, her face isn't pink, before something rolls out from under her long denim skirt. She pauses to pick it up and inspect it, shedding a pair of glasses as she does so.]

...a plastic apple? I can see how the sweets might be used to accent Olette's pastries, but this...

[An awkward mish-mash of being both caring and stern, forgiving and unwavering; a costume possessing the normalcy of a teacher (we liked this art off pixiv; idk it looked teachery) seemed the logical choice (or babysitter, or big sister...). It's about 90% more modest than her usual attire, too. Feel free to assume it's a soft pink color as opposed to green, because pink is much cuter. Honestly, I had more flashy ideas, but something plain seemed to fit her personality better.]

[After an amazing few days of feline misadventures and fashion disasters, we have a Tear who is once again normal, but likely in need of psychiatric help. The shrine is missing one of its miko costumes - it was needed in a sudden emergency (ie. Tear transforming back at the end of the event and what she was wearing at the time disappearing completely along with her kitty ears), but don't worry, Fay. Tear will wash it, hang it out to dry, and bring it back in proper order!

Currently, Tear is curled up in the shade of a large tree, being too exhausted to do much of anything, although she did force herself to go to work just because it's her duty. In case you were wondering? Last week didn't happen. If you ask her about it, she will do her best to pretend it never happened unless you push her too hard. Then, well... That might not be a wise move, folks.]

The champions' chariots are shining brightly...

((OOC: For ability regains - 1% goes to recipes. They are a Tales staple. 1% goes to the sixth fonic hymn (Grand Cross) which is an attack spell that makes a giant cross of light appear above an opponent and then it does damage. Naturally Cherry wants to be confusing and not go in order. Actually she just wanted an arte that does damage rather than another support spell. 9% total.))

[Tear is standing in the middle of her room right after this thread, wearing an outfit that she would not normally be caught dead in, simply because her closet is overflowing with revealing garments which she most certainly did not buy herself, and she can't find her normal clothes, since she only has a few of those. She is almost visibly bristling, as if her hair has started to stand on end.]

Wh-- W-what is this?!

[Anybody nearby can probably hear.]

...wait... Wait a minute...

[Oh and it starts to click into place, but Tear's just getting even more agitated. Her tail starts lashing and her ears are twitching. Wait... wait a minute... this isn't quite right.]

((OOC: I'll explain, I'm stealing the catgirl antics from Tokyo Mew Mew. If Tear gets embarrassed/scared/flustered, her cat ears and tail will pop out. If you really freak her out, she'll turn completely into a cat. If you turn her into a cat, the only way she can return to normal is if she gets kissed (or licked, nosed, etc) by a human or another animal. This is totally how it works in shoujo manga, I didn't make it up. XD She'll also have a few cat-like tendencies... moodiness, "-nya"-ing, well, use your imagination. Have fun? *bricked*))

Tanabata... the "evening of the seventh"... From what I have read, it's a holiday celebrating a legend about two lovers who can only meet one night a year. It's basically a story to explain a series of constellations.

Not only is it depressing, it seems to me like they were awfully weak-willed. Orihime and Hikoboshi shouldn't have let themselves forget their duties. Besides that, after her father got angry at them, they should have stood up against him. When he separated the two, they could have easily built a bridge across the river themselves, but instead the legend says Orihime started crying and the birds agreed to form a bridge for her with their wings. You can't expect to get your way by pouting; you should take action! Honestly... a woman who does nothing but cry all the time is utterly useless, in my opinion.

At least Rena is really excited. I'll never hear the end of it at this rate.
Well, if this is the only way for me to get my memories back, I guess I'll have to go. I should take some comfort in knowing I won't have to be turned back into a child (or anything else, for that matter) this time.

((OOC: Strikes can be read if you really want your character to be able to read them. XDD But they should technically be almost impossible to read.))

[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.]

((OOC: Ohgosh, must break up hiatus posts. D= ))

Would anyone happen to have enough free time in the evenings to teach me how to fight?

Just the basics would be fine, and I wouldn't be asking you to do it for free.

I think going on like this... being a completely inexperienced fighter... might be more of a danger than anything out there in the woods. I don't know why I feel I need to learn how to use these things. I guess it's because they're there. They came here with me, so they must have some importance. Right? Why would I have weapons if my aim is so terrible in the first place? Or perhaps I have to remember how to fight in order to use them properly.

I guess I should review what I've learned for my own benefit...

This place is called Memento Eden and it seems that people arriving here with no memories is a common occurence. The amnesia visitors suffer seems to be unnatural and induced by something... or someone. Wilheim compared it to a stage. I think I will stick to the chess game analogy. I wonder if there really is someone behind everything and what they'd be gaining from it... and what path I'll choose.

Anyway, over time memories return to people. This process seems slow, however. I may have plenty of time in Memento Eden, but I feel like I should keep myself busy and do what I can.

Food and board is apparently provided for free. I discovered I'm on one of the lower floors of the Ari Apartments, and apparently have a roommate. I think her name was Renge? I wonder what this person is like? I'm sure I'll find out soon.

Yes. The more I look at it, the more I realize I won't be able to simply do things on my own. There are so many people here... They seem very willing to help. I wonder if I'll be of any help to someone else?

To begin, I need to find myself a job. Preferably something with a cute uniform... After that I need to learn how to fight with a staff and how to use throwing knives. I wouldn't have them with me if I had never used them before, right? I wonder what else I'll be able to learn.

If I continue like this, I should be able to find some answers. I just hope that wherever I came from things are going well. I'd feel bad if someone needed me and I wasn't there for them.

Come to think about it, I wonder why I was crying...
