Cast of Characters: Minoke Sato, Sayaka Miki


Minoke Sato has posed:
Minoke Sato rolls into the arcade. An update to the Sailor V game was just made. And Minoke wants to check it out. So there she is. A redhead wearing mostly black including a black choker in a powered wheelcahir, she looks around. Funnily, meeting the actual Sailor V doesn't make playing the game any less fun as she rolls over - and sighs. Every machine was in use from others doing the same thing. "Oh well," she murmurs as she heads over to the vintage aisle and starts up an Asteroids game.
Sayaka Miki has posed:
    "Oooh, ooh! Sailor V! Here I come!" announces Sayaka as she rushes eagerly into the arcade. Indeed, she had heard about the new and improved 'Sailor-V! version Z!" and just had to try it out. However, indeed, it seems that all the V games are in use. "Aww...Bummer."

     Making a face, Sayaka peers around for a free arcade game to play, and spies a somewhat familiar girl in a wheelchair. If only she could remember her name! Rrr...

    Nevertheless, she steps towards Minoke, smiling. "Hey, you! Remember me? I helped you against a bunch of bullies. How's it going? Been a while.." Oh that's right, and she had some sort of magical device that protected her.
Minoke Sato has posed:
Minoke Sato glances over as she had finished her level in Asteroids and hasn't pushed the 'level 2' button yet. "Oh hi," she chrips. "I still think of you when I hear... insenstiive comments. How you were willing to stick your nose out for someone you didn'tk now. I was hoping to play the Sailor V game but... I guess I wasn't fast enough. Oh well, it's not going anywhere and we'll get a chance eventually." She smiles faintly. "I just wanted to try Asteroids - it's a classic but still fun, Sayaka-san."
Sayaka Miki has posed:
    Sayaka smirks as she watches. "Heh, you're pretty good. I havent played Asteroids in a really long time! Mind if I join in?" She sits in the seat next to her, peering at the screen. Wow, totally oldschool, but that's ok!

    "Well I hope we teached those kids a lesson! Hopefully you havent run into anymore bullies? Although, with that secret weapon of yours, I guess it shouldn't be a problem, right?" She fishes through her coin purse, pushing a few coins in the game slot and grins.

    "Alright, are you ready?"
Minoke Sato has posed:
Minoke Sato murmurs, "Yeah. And nobody's bothered me. I... I do hope that you didn't tell anyone about Vortex," she murmurs as she scoots over a bit so there's room there. "Alright. Level 2, go!" she chirp as she starts pushing the buttons and controlling her ship, blasting rocks.
Sayaka Miki has posed:
    Sayaka grits her teeth as she peers at the video game screen. The aliens are falling from the skies at a rapid rate. Fortunately it's one of those cooperative type games and she assists Minoke in blasting them away! Still, there's some competition in trying to get the higher score, right?

    "Hah! I forgot how much fun these oldschool games can be! Hah, I'll be you for sure!" she mashes the arcade buttons eagerly, desperate to prove her worth.

    "Hmm, Vortex? Who's..." Oh. Oh right. That weird weapon of hers, and the magical necklace thingy if she recalls correctly. "Right, that! Don't worry, your secret's safe with me?" She smiles, making a zipping motion with her lips. "But with powers like that, have you ever considered becoming a professional superhero? I'll bet they'd come in handy, and give you purpose." Just cuz y'know, it's better to take out anger on monsters than on bullies.
Minoke Sato has posed:
Minoke Sato smiles faintly. "Maybe I have," she murmurs as she continues to play - and then wipeout - her reaction time wasn't fast enough and she got game over'd. "Oh well - well, you're pretty good at it," she states, gently touching the choker around her throat. She doesn't want to disrupt your concentration so stays quiet as you try to save the day on the game.
Sayaka Miki has posed:
    Sayaka arches a brow. "Oh? Really?" She peers around carefully before lowering her voice some. No reason to alert others of her secret identity. Fortunately, most people are too busy playing the popular Sailor V to pay much notice to the girls playing some oldschool arcade game. "So, you got a secret identity? Gone on any heroic escapades yet?"

    She seems to have no trouble focusing on the game, talking and smashing buttons at the same time.
Minoke Sato has posed:
Minoke Sato just smiles. "Perhaps. I... I'm not really supposed to talk about it with... normal people..." she murmurs. Yes, Sayaka stuck her neck out to keep Minoke safe but she's still a civilian. "The less you know... the less harm can come to you if one day some bad guy was looking for me..."
Sayaka Miki has posed:
    Sayaka arches a brow, almost offended by that remark, but hey. It's kinda how she feels, now that she's a Puella Magi. "Normal people, huh?" She smirks, "Well, good thing I'm not 'normal!' Say hello to Puella Magi Sayaka Miki! Your friendly neighborhood magical girl, at your service!"

    She gives a quick, informal bow as she says that, holding up her finger displaying her magical soulgem ring. "Yeah, secret identities aren't really a thing when you're a magical girl! But I'd understand if you gotta keep your own identity a secret. If you need some guidance though..I'm always happy to help!"
Minoke Sato has posed:
Minoke Sato widens her eyes. "You're a Puella...?" she whispers. She doesn't sound very happy. "I'm sorry... I know something about the Puella Magi. That you're all doomed... one of my friends made a contract with that rat to get her sight back and..." She smiles faintly. "My secret identity is Firebird. Let's get out of here - perhaps I can show you." She sighs osftly. "Ever hear of the WPS?"
Sayaka Miki has posed:
    Sayaka's a bit surprised when Minoke mentions that Puella are doomed. "Wait, what? What do you know about Puella? It's supposed to be kept secret.." And then she mentions the blind girl who became a Puella. "Waaait, you mean Shinobu-chan? She told you that?!" now Sayaka seems pretty worried.

    "And who else exactly did she tell?" Why, if WPS hears about that, they're even more doomed! "Besides, we're not really 'doomed'. Not since Madoka made a contract that enables her to purify magical girls before...That happens.."

    Sayaka's almost afraid to say what 'that' is, not exactly sure WHAT she's heard. "Yeah, Witch Hunter Protective Services. So you know of them, huh?"
Minoke Sato has posed:
Minoke Sato murmurs, "I was there... when Shinobu made her contract," she murmurs. "The labyrinth - that witch... I even got a bullet through my leg for the trouble. Just becaue I didn't feel it didn't mean it wasn't a problem..." She sighs softly. "And... I know what could happen when your soul gem becomes corrupted... and..." She smiles faintly. "I just joined the WPS. I'm hoping to find a way to save all the Puellas from... their fate."
Sayaka Miki has posed:
    Sayaka arches a brow at Minoke. "Oh! I see..Yeah, I'm relieved that Shinobu-chan's life was saved - and she was able to protect you too. But, I'm worried. WPS hunts witches..Just promise me you wont tell anyone our little secret."

    She still doesnt know what else Minoke knows, about how they become witches eventually but. "So, you think WPS holds the answer? Have they been helpful so far? I'm kinda considering joining them myself.."
Minoke Sato has posed:
Minoke Sato murmurs, "I don't want Shinobu to becmoe a witch..." she whispers. " She's too nice of a girl to let that happen..." She looks up aty ou. "You too. Nobody deserves that fate. There has to be a way to prevent it - you guys got the short end of the stick when it came to magic..." She shrugs. "But if we keep defeating witches, we can ensure that no more are made... hopefully."
Sayaka Miki has posed:
    "Hmm, so you know about all that too, huh." Of course, there was the part about a Puella's soul being trapped in their gem as well but..She probably knows about all that as well. "Yeah, Shinobu-chan's a nice girl...Aha! Your name is Minoke-chan, right?" She grins sheepishly, "Sorry, took me a moment to remember there..Umm.."

    Sayaka is suddenly busy, getting shot down by asteroids and what not on her little game - level 4 now! Awesome! She grits her teeth in deep concentration as she attempts to blast through all her enemies. It's a moment before she returns to the conversation.

    "But, there IS a solution. Do you know of Madoka Kaname? She is a Puella as well, but a special one. Kyubey once said that her powers are far beyond any other Puella he's ever seen. I dunno why, but anyways, Madoka made a wish that allows her to purify Puella befoer they become witches."

    She smiles, "Hey, it's not perfect, she cant purify all witches simultaneously, but, it is certainly a big benefit for us! There is hope for Puella! And I know this, because Homura-san herself had become a witch before Madoka was able to purify her and bring her back."
Minoke Sato has posed:
Minoke Sato shakes her head. "I'm just glad there's hope - the thought of any decent person like you, or Shinobu, or any of the others becoming monsters just because you made a wish just sounds awful." She smiles faintly. "Maybe sometime we can meet up and go fight some monsters or something... if you thought my little rock-stopping trick was cool - just wait till you see what I can do." She grins. "One of my powers even scares me a bit."
Sayaka Miki has posed:
    Sayaka nods. "Of course! Madoka's the best! If anyone can save us, she can!" She smiles happily as she speaks of her best friend, "Hey, she might be a little naieve seeming at first, but she really is a good person, and wise beyond her years. Some day I'd like to introduce you to her! Ack!" she blinks as she suddenly gets blasted by asteroids. "Well darn! Guess I'm out!"

    Making a face, Sayaka remains in her seat, watching as Minoke continues to play the game. "Heh, guess you won..Well, I think that sounds like fun!" she shrugs, "I honestly dont regret the wish I made. And I'm sure Shinobu doesn't regret being able to see either. And now, she doesn't have to fear becoming a monster.."

     It's true that Madoka's powers are limited, but Sayaka is still hopeful that she can save a lot of people, even if she cant save every last Puella out there.
Minoke Sato has posed:
Minoke Sato murmurs, "Can I ask what wish you made? Or is that too personal?" She smiles faintly. "I just know I'm glad I didn't cross paths with Kyubey. I know I couldn't stop myself from wishing to walk again." She shrugs. "But flying around is almost as fun as walking used to be..."
Sayaka Miki has posed:
    Sayaka smirks, "Nah. I have a dear friend - someone I thought I loved. He's an extremely talented violinist, but one day he was involved in an..An accident. No, a youma attacked us, and left him badly injured. Damaged his hands to the point where they were utterly useless. No modern science could fix them, and I just couldn't bear to see him so sad and without any hope. So I made a wish that his hands were healed."

    She smiles softly at the memory, of seeing the look on his face when he had received her miracle. "So that was my wish, and now he's a famous violinist. I've never seen someone so happy, even if I didn't get to be with him, even if he chose someone else over me...Even if I have to face the challenges of a Puella, I could never regret giving one person true happiness in exchange for that. And I'm sure it was the same for Shinobu. For a Puella, the wish that we make is one that we must fight our whole lives for, it's not something to be taken lightly."
