This is unusual...

I'm pretty sure I was walking the Emperor's rappigs a while ago.  Could it be that they ran so fast I knocked my head somewhere and fell unconscious? Knowing those little creatures, I'd probably say that's plausible. Still, that doesn't explain why I'm here.

Ah, Jade might get angry at me. I'm pretty sure he wanted me to deliver some reports to the Fon Master. Even after everything, a colonel like him should have a large amount of work to do. He's going to torture me when I get back.

I hope that I don't end up like Dist.

Anyway, I wonder what I should do in the meantime? I doubt I can get out of here anytime soon. The people outside the hotel are kind of... unusual.

Can anyone help me? I'm a bit on the lost side.
14th-May-2008 12:49 am (UTC)
... Do you usually talk to yourself this much?
14th-May-2008 01:29 am (UTC)
Normally? No.

However, normally I'm attending to a lot of things, so I don't think I would have the time to talk to myself.

May I ask your name? I'm Guy, by the way.
14th-May-2008 04:06 am (UTC)
Well, where are you?
14th-May-2008 05:08 am (UTC)
Inside the really fancy looking hotel. This isn't anywhere near Grand Chokmah, is it?
14th-May-2008 05:10 am (UTC)
... No. Did you listen to the woman at the front desk?
14th-May-2008 05:18 am (UTC)
Ah, room assignment?

I'm not sure. I was suffering from a really painful headache when she was explaining things. I think it's Room 513, or somewhere there.
15th-May-2008 01:44 pm (UTC)
The people of this city are useless. If you are looking for a way out, your best bet is to find it yourself.
15th-May-2008 02:01 pm (UTC)
Really? Has no one been able to get out of here?
15th-May-2008 02:04 pm (UTC)
So far, no. Have you walked to the city limits yet?
15th-May-2008 02:09 pm (UTC)
Not yet. I wanted to, but I have a feeling something bad's going to happen if I do.
15th-May-2008 02:14 pm (UTC)
It's not bad, exactly. You'll lose consciousness and wake up in the hotel again.
16th-May-2008 12:41 am (UTC)
I guess you can't escape at all then.
16th-May-2008 03:36 am (UTC)
I didn't say that. There must be a way out.
16th-May-2008 04:24 am (UTC)
Well, we'll see. For now, as long as I'm here, I guess a job is in order.

By the way, I didn't catch your name. I'm Guy.
16th-May-2008 04:26 am (UTC)
That seems to be the priority of a number of people.

Uchiha Sasuke.
16th-May-2008 04:31 am (UTC)
[laughs] Well, it's beats knocking yourself out repeatedly trying to escape. I might be able to find information on how to leave if I work anyway.
16th-May-2008 04:31 am (UTC)
If any of the civilians prove useful.

What do you do where you're from?
16th-May-2008 04:37 am (UTC)
Well, I guess they would be a problem. It's unusual how similar they all are. They remind me of the replicas.

Mostly I just walk the Emperor's rappigs and do chores for the Malkuthian Colonel. I was walking the rappigs last time I checked before I got here.

How about you? From your form I'd say you're a fighter.
16th-May-2008 04:39 am (UTC)
Their uniformity is definitely abnormal, but I have ruled out illusion.

Rappigs? Are these a kind of animal?

I'm a ninja.
16th-May-2008 04:51 am (UTC)
I doubt it's an illusion. They look pretty real to me.

Yes, rappigs are I guess what you would call pigs with rabbit ears. They act like normal pigs, but they can be really destructive when left to feed on their own.

I've never met a ninja before. What are ninjas like?
16th-May-2008 04:54 am (UTC)
The amount of chakra required for an illusion of this magnitude makes it impossible.

... ah. I see. So you're something of a herdsman?

What are we like? [looks confused for a moment] We fight. The general idea is that we are hired for missions that we complete for money.
16th-May-2008 05:01 am (UTC)
Chakra? Is that like Fonons? Well, I wouldn't think an illusion of that scale would be possible. Replicas might be possible, but that would take an immense amount of Seventh Fonons and would flood this place with miasma.

[laughs] I seem that way, don't I?

No, I'm actually a Malkuthian noble. The Emperor just gave me a job as his rappig walker. Jade also makes me do reports for him often, especially when he's on military training.

I mean, what kind of fighting do you do? From how I see it, you seem to use some sort of magic, chakra, but also do intense physical training. I'm a swordsman, so I work well with long blades.
16th-May-2008 05:20 am (UTC)
If Fonons are the equivalent of life force, then yes.

Ah, I see. I'm told nobleman are expected to do such things for their royalty.

You're a fighter as well? Shinobi are trained in the use of genjutsu, ninjutsu, and taijutsu. Of the three only taijutsu can be used without chakra. It's not so much magic as the channeling of a life force, but it probably looks similar.
16th-May-2008 05:26 am (UTC)
I see, so that's how it is. Well, I used to be a servant before being a noble, so I spent a lot of time training so that I could protect the young master. Not like I was able to in the end, dammit.

Not all nobles, just those that the Emperor could lay his hands on. I'm in the capital, and since I used to travel with the Colonel, the Enperor deemed me worthy to walk his pets.
16th-May-2008 05:30 am (UTC)
[looks slightly surprised] Noblemen are promoted?

... I see. So taking care of these rappigs is meant to be an honour of some sort?
16th-May-2008 05:36 am (UTC)
Ah, how do I explain this...

Well, I am a noble by birth. A war occurred, and my family died. I became a servant for my family's killer for revenge, but I never really went through with it. They found out about my status later, and so I returned to Malkuth as a noble.

No, it's not. The Emperor just likes taking advantage of people he knows. He's not a bad guy, but he is quite unusual.
16th-May-2008 05:38 am (UTC)
You became a servant of the one who killed your family and failed to complete revenge? ... why?

I see.
16th-May-2008 05:42 am (UTC)
Well, let's just say, there are some things in life more important than revenge.
16th-May-2008 05:43 am (UTC)
... [quietly] for some.
16th-May-2008 05:45 am (UTC)
You'll understand someday, I guess. It's hard for a lot of people to accept that.
16th-May-2008 07:36 am (UTC)
It's impossible to accept for me. But I assume all situations are different.
16th-May-2008 01:28 pm (UTC)
What makes you say that?
16th-May-2008 02:38 pm (UTC)
That it is impossible for me?

My past.
15th-May-2008 06:38 pm (UTC)
What makes you think the people in the hotel are usual?
15th-May-2008 06:39 pm (UTC)
I mean, we have ninjas in here, for God's sake. How's that normal?
16th-May-2008 12:44 am (UTC)
Well, they are different in the hotel right? I mean, everyone outside the hotel all act the same. It's a bit more disturbing than having ninjas or other unknown beings here. What are ninjas anyway?
16th-May-2008 09:45 am (UTC)
Oooh. You've got a point.

...people that fight? I don't know. They're silly and raise cats, and don't talk much.
16th-May-2008 02:22 pm (UTC)
... Is raising cats mandatory for all ninjas? That's a weird rule to have.
16th-May-2008 02:49 pm (UTC)
I don't know, maybe they train the cats too.
17th-May-2008 08:27 am (UTC)
That doesn't sound right. Wouldn't other animals work better?
17th-May-2008 09:22 am (UTC)
I don't know!
