[Assume this was written after the snow thread, please. I can happily edit this if anyone else would like to participate.]

Ah... Before I forget: Nall, X. Thank you. I had a good time. Perhaps we can enjoy the weather again sometime.

Well then. Another one of those Earth holidays appears to be coming up soon. Nothing incredibly strange has happened for some time, which leads me to believe that it just might. I could be wrong, however. I hope I am wrong...

At first everything seemed to roughly follow a pattern in regards to "events" and regaining memories, but recently this hasn't been the case. I've also noticed that I've been remembering things at a considerably faster rate than I was months ago. I wonder how much longer...

Regardless, I still have far more questions than I do answers, so I would assume that I haven't made as much progress as I would like to think. Though, I suppose, one can hardly call it "progress" when it requires no effort on our part.

[Filtered from Ari.]

The more I think about it, the less sense any of this makes. What could anyone be gaining by taking memories away from other individuals? Whatever the reason, I can't imagine that the results are turning out to be particularly favorable.

I also have to wonder if the shopkeepers might provide some sort of clue. Getting them to speak, however, might prove easier said than done. They are cats after all.

[OOC: Let's get this chick caught up with remembering stuff that actually happened DURING the game. 2% on all remaining backstory (Major Cantabile, more of Van and his crazy visions of grandeur). 1% on actually breaking into the Fabre mansion. 3% remaining. 27% total.]

It's been rather quiet since the new year started. I suppose that's not so surprising, given the temperature.

I've been reading again and had a question: Is snow commonplace in other worlds, and, if so, how is it handled? What I mean is: do people participate in activities and games when there's snow, or do they merely clear it out of the streets and move on?

Suffice it to say, in my hometown, we don't have snow. Although we do have lightning.

[OOC: Major tl;dr, I know. I was bored at work again. 1% on the "hair divorce" as some people like to call it. 3% remaining, 24% total used.]

So Misa-Misa was right in the end.

It would seem my family originally came from the Island of Hod. "Grants" is the last name belonging to Governor Teodoro who took us in. Van and I were are apparently the only surviving members of House Fende, which-- No. I feel certain they're known for something, but I can't pinpoint just what that something is.

And also...

[Tear starts doing some math in the margins of her journal, something to do with Ifritday, Lorelei-Decan 1, ND 2001*. It probably doesn't make a whole lot of sense, given Auldrant's unique calendar system, but once she's done, she's got a date circled that actually does - December 2nd**.]

If my calculations are correct, I should be around 16... Well, that's assuming my last memory was recent. I don't think it could have happened terribly long ago, but I can't be completely sure.

[Private; unhackable.]
Was it all revenge for Hod? Perhaps I never understood, and I certainly don't understand it now...
Van, why did you have to go to such extremes?

((OOC: 1% going to what Van has told her about their origins and Hod. Throwing her birthday in, too. 13% total. 1% remaining from Oktoberfest.))

*I have also seen it listed as 2002. I'm not sure which is accurate, as there are a few errors in the calendar anyway. Suffice it to say Tear's calculated that she's somewhere around 16 years old based on what she has remembered, although her actual age is closer to 19 since she's taken from the end of the game.
**Based off this thread.
nightcrossed: (Melancholy)
[For all technical purposes, Tear has made herself scarce. She is taking the rest of the week off from work and has informed no one about it save the manager. That doesn't mean she's impossible to find, however. Rather predictably she is sitting near her flower garden at the Hakurei Shrine, rolling an apple between her palms that she snagged from breakfast this morning and hasn't taken the first bite of. There's a lot for her to mull over, and she can't do that unless she has some time to herself. Auldrant has never seemed so far away, but she has no idea where to go from here, and she still has so very many unanswered questions.]


[OOC: Cherry's mean, but I need to get some of this heavy crap out of the way at some point. 1% on Absorption Gate, mainly concerned with dialogue; the battle itself; and Van, like all good Disney villains, falling to his "demise". AND THAT VAN SRSLY PLAYS HIS OWN BGM ON THE ORGAN. We'll worry about the other cast members and all the technical Sephiroth (not that Sephiroth) stuff at another time, so assume she doesn't know anything about lowering the land or where the heck all this drama is taking place. That makes 12% with 2% left. She'll go back to work next Monday.]
nightcrossed: (Prayer)
((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.

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.]
nightcrossed: (Maid)
[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.]

I suppose it isn't my fault that the island has a track record of causing strange and chaotic things to happen, but I do apologize for being equally unpredictable.

I have to wonder why some of us were affected twice and others not at all. Not that I'm complaining, since I might not have remembered my training without it, but it's still a curiosity.

If anyone is actively looking for a way out of Memento Eden, I'd like to offer assistance. It's crucial that I get back to my own world as soon as possible. As much as I dislike the idea of still having amnesia whenever that happens, preventing calamity takes precedence over my own comfort.

[Private, Unhackable.]
I never could understand you, no matter how hard I tried.
Even now I can't even begin to imagine what you must be thinking.


I swear on the blood we share that I will find a way to stop you. As your sister, I cannot allow you to follow through with some plot that might kill thousands of people. I just hope I'm not already too late.

If only I knew more. I can't even remember Major Legretta very clearly, although I'm certain she's following my brother's commands. But, I do specifically recall that they mentioned someone else... Asch, was it? Major Legretta was worried about him getting suspicious. And they were going to send someone named Sync to make sure he didn't interfere. Who are they, and what role do they have in all of this? If they see this Asch person as a threat, he might be a potential ally... if I can convince him. (And if I can find him.) Regardless, I won't be able to do anything until I get back.

I hate feeling so utterly powerless.

Thank goodness the weather is finally warming back up. I don't think I could have endured much more of it.

Anyway, I finally managed to remember something today. That sounds kind of pathetic, doesn't it?

I remembered my brother, Van. I get the impression that he was very dear to me when I was a child, almost like a father. He used to sing to me, I think, but I can't recall the melody.

All of that must have been a long time ago.

Why can't I remember anything more recent? Did something happen?

[1% memory gain from the poetry contest; she remembers Van only as she knew him as a child, she has no idea about his plans for destroying the Outer Lands, etc, etc. Just very basic stuff about him. 1% total. (Hope that's alright.)]
