Hinote Kagari walks along the road of the Uminari Shopping Strip, past the Game Center Crown-- his hands are in his suit jacket's pockets as he stops and turns around to Runealy, who's following him-- he's leading the way today because if something happens, he wants to tank first.

"Alright, so..."

"You're saying something went down here?" he asks more seriously. "With Fate. right?" he asks. He remembers, Fate, vaugely- one of the people who helped saved Waldia after all. You don't forget people like that.

"What have you learned so far, exactly?" he asks Runealy, as he turns back and looks around a bit. "Hrm..."
Tsubasa Kazanari 2016-03-26 17:04:24 36003
Tsubasa Kazanari walks out of a bookstore, past a music store (where a big poster with her face on it is advertising her latest album) and comes across Runealy and Hinote. She remembers meeting Hinote in another girl's bedroom, and looks at him, at Runealy, and back at Hinote. "Kagari-san, right? Are you talking about the eclipse?"
Runealy Waldia 2016-03-26 17:07:29 36004
"Fate's not the only thing I'm worried about, but she's the biggest. There was also some weird rift in the sky for a moment the other day, and..." Rune has been pacing along with Hinote, splitting her attention between facing him while speaking, and looking around the road for any sort of clues. No obvious hints about recent events are forthcoming.

"...well, the biggest thing I know is-- hm?" She stops talking as Tsubasa addresses them. Rune looks surprised, glancing from Tsubasa to Hinote, back and forth a few times. "Oh, you know each other?" No answer about the eclipse just yet.
Hinote Kagari 2016-03-26 17:16:46 36005
Hinote Kagari looks to Tsubasa, and smiles. "Kazanari-san." he says. He turns to Runealy. "She's an aquaintance. It's okay to talk about this stuff around her." he says softly with a soft nod. "This is Tsubasa Kazanari, she's an idol singer..." he motions across to the music store, with that poster.

"Kazanri-san, this is Runealy Waldia, Guardian Princess of Waldia. She's my close friend." he smiles.

He turns back to Runealy.

"A rift...?" he asks.

"Like.." well Waldia's portal maybe. But he tries to find different words for it. "--like the way back home?"
Tsubasa Kazanari 2016-03-26 17:20:35 36006
"Pleased to make your acquaintance, Waldia-san." Tsubasa bows politely, and she glances towards Hinote before softly adding. "I am also a member of Virtue." Hopefully Hinote and Runealy are aware enough of the organization to know who Tsubasa is talking about. "When was this rift, I might be able to check the records?"
Runealy Waldia 2016-03-26 17:24:46 36007
"It's so weird, knowing who we can and can't talk to about things like this. Back home, everyone knew." Rune nonetheless appreciates Hinote's explanation, as it means she doesn't have to be so careful about what topics can be discussed. "But that's who... oh!" Now she sees the resemblance once the poster is pointed out, giving quick glances to it and then the person it depicts.

"That's neat, seeing that singers and other performers can do well here too. And you're with Virtue?" This is pretty much going down a checklist of things Rune likes; despite her worry on very pressing topics, she allows a smile to Tsubasa now and even returns the bow. "We know them... actually, we've been thinking of joining once we get the chance. They're part of why our home is still standing, a /big/ part of it. People like Hinote here," a nod over to him, "Are another big reason. The rift, though?"

She pauses to think on this, before admitting, "It kind of was like the one leading home, but this had some weird claw come out of it. I didn't stick around too long to learn more about it. It was just last night, several others I think are with Virtue tried to help but I don't know as much about it as they do."

She adds as an aside, a belated part of her introduction, "'Rune' for short is okay too. Nice to meet you."
Hinote Kagari 2016-03-26 17:34:49 36008
Hinote Kagari smiles at the praise, because Hinote kind of likes basking in praise when it's offered. It makes him feel good. He turns back around to Tsubasa. "That's correct. We know about Virtue. So no worries." he says softly.

He frowns. "So a rift with... a giant... claw..." he shakes his head a bit.

"This place has been really active as of late hasn't it?" he says softly.

"Do you know what caused the rift?" he asks. "Or did it just appear? Did anything else come out of it..?" he asks.

He looks around more cautiously.

Just a font of questions at the moment.


"I wonder if there will be more then." he says crossing his arms.
Tsubasa Kazanari 2016-03-26 17:40:17 36009
"Virtue is always busy, I think that must have happened before we joined Virtue." Tsubasa doesn't go into detail on who 'we' is, instead glancing towards the poster. "Yes, I sing for a living."

"I haven't heard about a rift like that, Waldia-san." Tsubasa responds softly, getting out some kind of old looking phone or radio unit, and pressing buttons like she's going through some files. "I'm not seeing anything in here either, sorry." She does not call Runealy Rune, or by her first name at all. It doesn't seem personal.
Runealy Waldia 2016-03-26 17:41:21 36010
"A book someone was trying to retrieve, I /think/." Rune isn't totally sure on the flow of events from last night's battle, having spent much of it distracted and some of it 'blinded' by lights and noises. "Fairly sure she got it. No idea what to make of all this, though. What I'm really worried about is Fate, she's..."

Rune's gaze lowers, one hand balling in to a fist. "Making the same mistake I was."

As for Tsubasa's lack of information, this doesn't bother the alien princess. "That's okay. We'll figure this out one way or another. Still think it's neat you're able to get that far by singing, though." Her tone is quiet, but polite.
Hinote Kagari 2016-03-26 17:50:30 36012
Hinote Kagari blinks a book. Huh okay. He brushes his right sleeve as he puts his hands back into the suit jacket pockets. Then he frowns however, to hear about Fate.

"....oh dear." he says with genuine concern. "I'll keep my eyes open. I don't know her aswell as you do, so my ability to get through to her'll probably be limited to reminding her of the good she did helping home."

He looks to Tsubasa and looks up and over at the strange device. He huhs a bit. "What's that?" he asks.

Maybe it's a cellphone!? of some sort!?

He looks back at Runealy and softly offers. "But if there's anyone who can get through to her, I know you can, Runealy. You've been there. You know how it feels."
Tsubasa Kazanari 2016-03-26 17:55:38 36013
"It's a special phone." Tsubasa puts it back away. She looks between the others and chooses not to comment on the whole making a specific kind of mistake thing. She doesn't know what it is about, and she doesn't wish to pry. "Remind me, Fate is the girl with the Scythe, right?"
Runealy Waldia 2016-03-26 18:00:21 36014
"Just be really careful. Do that, but watch out... that man who attacked me just after you became a Knight seems to be trying to do something with Fate too." The notion that Riventon might be legitimately concerned for Fate simply doesn't enter Rune's thought process; her entire frame of reference for him is 'trying to ruin her world and her life', so Runealy's assumptions of his plans are very, very dim indeed.

"The worst part is she knows what's going on. She saw what happened with me and she's doing it anyway, talking about how I must have been 'using it wrong.' I was, but so is she." That fist tightens in a mix of frustration and worry. "The only right way is to /not/ use that kind of 'power. We have to get through to her on that!'"

Tsubasa's question calms her down from 'angry', instead in to 'frantic', wide eyes sweeping up to meet the blue-haired girl's gaze. "That's right! The one with yellow energy from it, and she wears mostly black with a bit of red to it. If you see her, please let me know. And... I know you might have to fight, but... please, don't go any further than you have to. Please!" This is probably unprovoked, but her tone is one of virtually begging mercy for Fate... as if Tsubasa could just up and decide that yes, Fate will be spared and everything will be fine and that is the end of the matter. "I think Virtue knows that, but I'll say it as many times as I have to."
Hinote Kagari 2016-03-26 18:15:21 36015
Hinote Kagari nods a bit. "'Black'." he says softly. "Right okay. I'll be sure to tread carefully, but I'll do my best to help, too." he says. "I'll try to pull my punches." he calls out. "Best I can. It'll depend on what she's doing though...."

"I can't let her hurt innocents. But we both know that." he says more solemly.

He gently places a hand on Rune's shoulder. "I'll do my best, Princess..." she says softly. "I promise." he says. It's all he can really offer.

He nods to Tsubasa. "We owe Fate a debt. If this is happening, we need to do our best to help her." he says.
Tsubasa Kazanari 2016-03-26 18:24:17 36016
"I'll try to keep that in mind." Tsubasa promises, though her tone of voice betrays that she won't hold back if she deems it necessary not to hold back, that there won't even be any doubt about it for her. She nods to Hinote at the statement that innocents must not be harmed, that that's a higher priority. "I'll ask around about both her and that rift you mentioned." She promises.
