Saturday, Oct 8:

<PHONE> A text from Naru Osaka at Sat Oct 08 12:43:05 2016: FYI Sayaka and Seth both got wraithed. (I did not.) Kyouko is going to check on Sayaka, I'm worried about her but don't have contact info.

<PHONE> You text Naru Osaka: Kyouko will be able to find her. If she hasn't checked in by Monday, I know where she goes to school.

<PHONE> A text from Naru Osaka at Sat Oct 08 13:15:29 2016: She was generally functional after the attack, but she drew them to her. Which is never a good long term sign.

<PHONE> You text Naru Osaka: She's a Puella. Puella get their attention.

<PHONE> A text from Naru Osaka at Sat Oct 08 13:16:15 2016: Not this way.

<PHONE> You text Naru Osaka: (Sayaka has, granted, several other long term signs that are not good.)
<PHONE> You text Naru Osaka: What did she do this time?

<PHONE> A text from Naru Osaka at Sat Oct 08 13:17:06 2016: Not fighting back until I yelled at her enough to get her attention. She was passively letting them chew on her.
<PHONE> A text from Naru Osaka at Sat Oct 08 13:17:43 2016: That is not how puella generally get their attention.

<PHONE> You text Naru Osaka: Did Kyouko see that?

<PHONE> A text from Naru Osaka at Sat Oct 08 13:21:22 2016: Kyouko was not there. Me, Seth, Sayaka, Cure Spark. Thank goodness for Cure Spark. I'm not powerful enough (and wobbly did not improve.), but got Sayaka out of her own head eventually.

<PHONE> You text Naru Osaka: How much did you tell Kyouko?

<PHONE> A text from Naru Osaka at Sat Oct 08 13:36:21 2016: Only that Sayaka got wraithed and I was concerned.

<PHONE> You text Naru Osaka: I'll check in with her when feasible.

<PHONE> A text from Naru Osaka at Sat Oct 08 14:07:42 2016: I ran out before the fight ended.
<PHONE> A text from Naru Osaka at Sat Oct 08 14:08:02 2016: Wait. Not ran away. Out of energy.

<PHONE> You text Naru Osaka: That happens sometimes.

<PHONE> A text from Naru Osaka at Sat Oct 08 14:10:21 2016: Wraiths was not an ideal time.

<PHONE> You text Naru Osaka: It never is. Ideal times are the ones that don't press you that hard.

<PHONE> A text from Naru Osaka at Sat Oct 08 14:13:00 2016: I got Sayaka armed and then couldn't get anythign else out.

<PHONE> You text Naru Osaka: Sayaka couldn't arm herself?

<PHONE> A text from Naru Osaka at Sat Oct 08 14:14:29 2016: No. I don't know why she didn't henshin, but she didn't.

<PHONE> You text Naru Osaka: Does Kyouko know that?

<PHONE> A text from Naru Osaka at Sat Oct 08 14:15:39 2016: No. I didn't put it together until just now. I was a little distracted at the time.

<PHONE> You text Naru Osaka: Fuck.

<PHONE> A text from Naru Osaka at Sat Oct 08 14:16:25 2016: Are you texting Kyouko, or am I?

<PHONE> You text Kyouko Sakura: Naru noted that Sayaka did not change even to arm herself during a fight against Wraiths.

<PHONE> You text Naru Osaka: Did.



Monday, Oct 10:

<PHONE> A text from Naru Osaka at Mon Oct 10 16:44:40 2016: I swear, I need to be a hermit for like a week.

<PHONE> You text Naru Osaka: I do not recommend standing on a pillar in the middle of the desert. It gets you too loud of an audience.

<PHONE> A text from Naru Osaka at Mon Oct 10 16:48:03 2016: In my top five hermit considerations, that wasn't in them.

<PHONE> You text Naru Osaka: Good to know you're applying your usual standards.

<PHONE> A text from Naru Osaka at Mon Oct 10 16:50:30 2016: Also, if there's an audience, it's /terrible/ hermiting.

<PHONE> You text Naru Osaka: Hermiting always gets an audience.
<PHONE> You text Naru Osaka: Same principle as cats being magnetically attracted to those allergic to them.

<PHONE> A text from Naru Osaka at Mon Oct 10 16:51:33 2016: I suppose as long as my audience doesn't require me to use magic at them, this isn't so bad.

<PHONE> You text Naru Osaka: I take it that your weekend went as well as mine did.

<PHONE> A text from Naru Osaka at Mon Oct 10 16:53:41 2016: /Right outside my apartment/. I just wanted a snack.
<PHONE> A text from Naru Osaka at Mon Oct 10 16:53:58 2016: (Not directed at me. None have been in a while.)

<PHONE> You text Naru Osaka: Good to know.

<PHONE> A text from Naru Osaka at Mon Oct 10 16:54:33 2016: What was your weekend? Or should I ask in person?

<PHONE> You text Naru Osaka: Swallowed by three-meter-at-the-shoulder shadow kitten.
<PHONE> You text Naru Osaka: For once Mamoru did not stop to try to get cute pictures.

<PHONE> A text from Naru Osaka at Mon Oct 10 16:56:10 2016: I had a /way/ better weekend than you did. Ew.
<PHONE> A text from Naru Osaka at Mon Oct 10 16:56:21 2016: Shiniko?

<PHONE> You text Naru Osaka: Shiniko.

<PHONE> A text from Naru Osaka at Mon Oct 10 16:58:48 2016: I'll take Griselda again instead of Shiniko. (Odds say, that's not going to happen). Right.

<PHONE> You text Naru Osaka: I do not recommend the inside of Shiniko's constructs as a vacation resort.

<PHONE> A text from Naru Osaka at Mon Oct 10 17:22:51 2016: Cross /another/ off the hermit list.



Monday, somewhat later:

<PHONE> A text from Naru Osaka at Mon Oct 10 17:45:22 2016: I really do need to work out new strategies for recharging.

<PHONE> You text Naru Osaka: Time is a necessary component of most.

<PHONE> A text from Naru Osaka at Mon Oct 10 17:49:21 2016: I'm getting that. Hence the desire to hermit.

<PHONE> You text Naru Osaka: Uncertain how often hermiting actually helps.

<PHONE> A text from Naru Osaka at Mon Oct 10 17:58:13 2016: If I'm hermiting, then I don't walk out of my apartment into Griselda.
<PHONE> A text from Naru Osaka at Mon Oct 10 17:59:03 2016: Time is all fine and good, but time /not using it/ is probably the key.

<PHONE> You text Naru Osaka: Not precisely.
<PHONE> You text Naru Osaka: Time recovering physically helps, yes. But detaching yourself from other people tends, in most cases, to slow recovery rather than enhance it.

<PHONE> A text from Naru Osaka at Mon Oct 10 18:08:17 2016: Mmmm. Okay. That's a fair point that I tend to forget. Clearly I need to hermit on your couch.

<PHONE> You text Naru Osaka: Manageable. You may wake up with a game controller in your hands, but that's a risk you're aware of.

<PHONE> A text from Naru Osaka at Mon Oct 10 18:10:23 2016: Neph's learned to be careful what controller he puts there. I'm terrible at shooting games.

<PHONE> You text Naru Osaka: Technically a fixable problem, but you may be working on fixing enough of those just now.

<PHONE> A text from Naru Osaka at Mon Oct 10 18:15:14 2016: Copious spare time. Although if I'm not working on special art, I've time to shoot things. Although I should be muraling, which shouldnt count against recharge. In theory?

<PHONE> You text Naru Osaka: Mural if you feel like it. If you're worried, I can monitor.

<PHONE> A text from Naru Osaka at Mon Oct 10 18:18:00 2016: You just don't want me to flood the apartment again.
<PHONE> A text from Naru Osaka at Mon Oct 10 18:19:09 2016: (company welcome. I'm not at faceplant stage, at least. That sucked.)

<PHONE> You text Naru Osaka: Flooding is a mild concern. We did after all plan for two inches of blood.

<PHONE> A text from Naru Osaka at Mon Oct 10 18:22:23 2016: I'll try not to take it as a challenge.

<PHONE> You text Naru Osaka: Kindly don't. You'd run out at about five liters.

<PHONE> A text from Naru Osaka at Mon Oct 10 18:24:38 2016: I just forced colour into a black and white villain because she said I couldn't. At the moment, I'd cap out at half a litre.

<PHONE> You text Naru Osaka: What tribute is required to keep you convinced never to take bribes from the others about my hair?

<PHONE> A text from Naru Osaka at Mon Oct 10 18:27:24 2016: O:) <3
