A trip to Midori-ya turns into a bit of a mishap When Yuuki sets up a barrier in front of Nanoha and Hannah.

Yuuki Oshiro 2016-11-26 04:49:40 61481
School is out. The evening is upon the city and everything is nice. Its Friday night. No School tomorrow so there is that bit of good news. Everything feels wonderful.

The Midori-ya Cafe is busy as usual. People are getting all sorts of goodies today. A familiar face is there. That face is Yuuki Oshiro. She seems in pretty good spirits. One thing is amiss though. She seems to be spacing. She is just sitting there with a cup of Cocoa infused with peppermint. She simply holds it as she quietly gazes into the distance.

Unheard to pretty much anyone, She's having a mental talk with Shining Star. It mainly has to do with the magic and how to do different things. Turns out someone got to the device enough to actually start teaching her.
Hannah Sharpe 2016-11-26 05:00:15 61482
WHUMP! Open goes the door to Midori-ya with Hannah's typical lack of care for things like 'door hinges' or 'maintenance on doors'. Boris is here too, of course, tugging along to the familiar front case with so many delicious treats! And a few are even doggie approved! Familiar or not.

After a quick ring of a bell, Hannah's grinning to whomever has the unfortunate task of manning the front desk at such a busy time. "Yo! Two donuts, coffee, and the usual for Boris here." She offers, waiting just enough to pay and sweep up her order. Her poison of choice is a peppermint latte, much like many during these near-christmas months.


Hannah all but falls into the booth right beside Yuuki. She manages to catch the vague whispering coming from Yuuki to the as-yet unknown Device.

"You really should speak up, kiddo. People'll think you're nuts around here!" Griiiiiin. Hannah Sharpe, grade-A jerk.
Nanoha Takamachi 2016-11-26 05:07:08 61483
Nanoha isn't the one tending the till today! Nope. She isn't even working! Nope. She comes downstairs after a bit as she stumbles down the stairs after doing some school work.

She's about to skip out the door when... Yuuki!

"Oh! Hi Yuuki!" she says. No surprise. It's a Cafe afterall. People come and go all the time!

She does head tilt and is about to ask something when...

/Sharpe-san/ x-x;;

She gives Hannah a soft frown. That frown tells Yuuki everything she needs to know.

"Hello, Hannah-chan. How are you?" she asks as she head tilts a little disapprovingly. Maybe Yuuki won't let the magical cat out of it's magical bag. (So Boris-kun won't chase it. :I)
Yuuki Oshiro 2016-11-26 05:15:18 61484
Yuuki Oshiro snaps out of her dazed state and blinks a few times. "Oh hiya Nanoha-chan!" She giggles a little. "Ummm sorry. Was just thinking." She idly taps the star shaped charm on her little string bracelet and gives a very subtle wink to Nanoha to let her know what was going on. She takes a long sip of her hot cocoa as she tries considers her current lesson.

Then there is the comment from the older girl. She looks at her and blinks a few times, "Huh? I didn't say anything. Except to my friend. I was just minding my own business. I don't think I was saying anything, anyway.

She quietly thinks for a few moments. Part of her wants to set up a barrier and talk candidly to Nanoha but, for now that may be a bit awkward. "Did you get the homework for this weekend, Nanoha-chan? I think I got most of it. I had some questions about our art assignments." Yeah that would work.
Hannah Sharpe 2016-11-26 05:27:54 61485
Luckily for Yuuki, Hannah gets distracted by friends. And enemies. And 'friends'. Who knows which or how many Nanoha falls into! She gives a big, smug grin. "Well if it isn't the nano-est of all Nanohas! How ya doin', kiddo?" Suddenly, the donut is devoured, and Nanoha has a Hanners shaped shadow looming above her with her more dreaded move!

A hug and a body-spin before setting her down! "You gotten taller lately? I /swear/ you've grown an inch or two! How are ya, huh? Doing good in school? Not letting...your sports get in the way too much?" Sports. Yeah!

Yuuki gets a laugh. Walking up, she swats the young woman on the back. "You don't say? Well, maybe I"m hearing things. Hannah Sharpe, at your service! Nanoha's friend, huh? Well. Good! She's a sweet kid, and pretty tough, even if she doesn't look like it. So good call. What kind of homework you doing?" That's right. Hannah's /poking/ into business that isn't her's.

Boris, for his part, is two-paws over his face in shame at his master's ways.
Nanoha Takamachi 2016-11-26 05:32:42 61486
Nanoha Takamachi head tilts. "Yup! I did it already!" because Nanoha is an overachiver to a degree. She doesn't catch on any 'double meaning' if Yuuki meant anything by it. "But what kind of questions?" she asks as she head tilts a little. She looks back to Hannah with a more neutral expression now.

"Yes I am doing very well in. Sports." she says matter of factly. Yuuki knows Nanoha doesn't play any sports by now.

She does smile a bit at Boris's reaction as she looks back. "How's the donut?" she asks quietly.
Yuuki Oshiro 2016-11-26 05:44:09 61487
Yuuki Oshiro blinks a little bit. So much for that. She thinks a little as she tries to cover up what she was talking about. "Oh! Oops Okay Never mind! I think I figured it out. No big deal. Sorry to bother you with it." SHe blushes a little bit.

Then there is an opening. Sports. Yeah, Nanoha doesn't play sports at all. "Oh... Sports are tough but a lot of fun sometimes." She just smiles. Nanoha would know by now that Yuuki doesn't play sports either!

Then there is the comment from Hannah. She winces as she smacked on the back and quickly covers her the star shaped charm on her wrist with her hand. < No. Not right now Shining Star. Its okay. Not a threat. > She quickly thinks to her device. "Umm its just some math Homework. I am usually pretty good with math. It goes with being a musician." Yup thats a good cover as any.

She snickers a little at Boris and what he is up to. Still her mind is drifting back to the actual lesson she is going through.
Hannah Sharpe 2016-11-26 05:50:52 61488
Arms cross. Hannah leans back juuust a bit. "Good, Nanoha. I'd be disappointed if you weren't. Maybe I should test that some time!" Smirk!

She then grows just slightly less smug. "Or maybe drag you out on a run or two. Might do you some good, huh?" She offers, less confrontationally than usual. By about a nanometer. It might be hard to spot the difference.

Boris offers a loud woof! The Doggie Donut is amazing, and he soon has two plates. Nomf nomf woof! Happy doge Familiar!

Not long after coffee and donut are devoured, Hannah is suddenly flopping into Yuuki's booth utterly unasked. "What kind? It's...you could say it's my specialty." Accounting and magical Calculator Plus Ten does that. She actually looks fairly seriously at Yuuki. Smile! "Hey, don't worry or anything. Math sucks for most people. So don't get too down if you're having a bad time! I'm sure all three of us can manage!" A sudden, hard, welcoming look to Nanoha!
Nanoha Takamachi 2016-11-26 05:56:54 61489
Nanoha Takamachi frowns. "If you want." she says. She knows the kind of 'run' Hannah already has in mind and she frowns a bit. She head tilts. "You're not good at math?" she asks. "We'll have to change that soon." she offers more seriously.

Mid-Chidlan Magic is basically Math. It's also why Nanoha had A+ grades in it!

She looks to Yuuki and head tilts again. "But yeah. You really need to be getting good at Math now." she insists a little more urgingly.
Yuuki Oshiro 2016-11-26 06:04:54 61490
Yuuki Oshiro sighs and rubs her head. It doesn't take rocket science to pick up that things are not what they seem as far as Hannah is concerned. She whispers to herself. "Radiant. Magical... Barrier." There is a glint of violet magic. The midchildan magical circle under her and then the colors start going dim around her, then around Nanoha and Hannah. A few moments later the cafe is greyed a little and she gives a smile.

"I'm not terrible at math. I'm actually pretty good at it. Music is rooted in math and if you are good with it you can do well with music! I was trying to explain what was going on, Nanoha-chan." Yuuki sighs and rubs the back of her head. "Nice to meet you Hannah-san. My name is Yuuki Oshiro. I go to school with Nanoha-chan."

Her attention goes to the dog whose quite happy. She giggles. "Happy puppy is happy!"
Hannah Sharpe 2016-11-26 06:15:06 61492
Hannah's head tilts, and she gives out a dramatic sigh. "You're a real buzz kill, Nanoha! Should try to be a bit more adventurous! It's /good/ for a plucky girl like you, ya know? Not like it'd kill you!" Sighs Hannah, shaking her head.

And then, a barrier kicks up with a little less than subtlety. Hannah perks up, then laughs. "Oh, /MAN/ finally someone willing to be honest! You have no idea how refreshing that is, Yuuki! Nice to meet you kiddo!" Suddenly, Hannah's all grins, trying to shake the young woman's hands! Shake shake shake!

A deep breath, even as she chuff's at Boris getting all that puppy attention! The big husky is all but snuggling Yuuki at this point.

"Well, one turn's worth another I suppose." Finger snap, and a bursting barrier beneath her feet. Hannah's suddenly clad in her suit, grinning.

"For things like /this/ you can call me Kasagami White, or Miss White, CEO of WitchHunter Professional Services. We specialize in young women like you. Here! My card!" Flick! Right into Yuuki's pocket!
Nanoha Takamachi 2016-11-26 06:19:30 61493
A barrier comes into existence. It's Yuuki's fault. Nanoha is now frowning at Yuuki.

"Yuuki. You just let someone who works for a very bad organization that wants to, quite frankly, rule the world in the kind of cartoon villian way you're magical." she says with a harder frown. "I made the same mistake. But that's because I thought Hannah-chan was a nice person because she came in everyday before...this." she says.

She frowns at Hannah as she bites her tounge further and looks to Yuuki as she offers a card. "You don't wanna get caught up in that, Yuuki. They steal from people. And beat them up. Purely because they have things they want to /take/." she says with a harder frown--- as she gives Hannah an entirely severe Nanoha-glare.
Yuuki Oshiro 2016-11-26 06:27:04 61494
Yuuki Oshiro blinks and gulps! "I'm sorry! I didn't I just didn't want to be misunderstood. I just.. I was trying to explain and I couldn't get my words out." She frowns and stands up.

On the upside. Hannah only knows that she can make a midchildan barrier. Not that she has a device or anything else. She winces. Sadly those things are like adding 2 and 2. She looks really upset.

Then she is told about what Hannah's comany does. Oh she just really messed up. She bites her bottom lip. Quickly she turns and moves clear out of the building.

< Sister you can not run from your problems. This is your problem and you will need to fix it. > Shining Star comments as she makes her way outside to a bench still within the barrier. The girl wraps her arms around herselfs as she considers this.
Hannah Sharpe 2016-11-26 06:33:47 61495
By now, Hannah's well aware of just how /not wrong/ Nanoha is. One finger rises, only for Yuuki to suddenly run out. Eyes close, and she lets her card go, thudding roughly into the wood of the table.

Arms cross, and she glares balefully in turn towards Nanoha. "Nanoha. I like you, kiddo, I do. But you can be a real pain, you know that!? I'm not...I'm not saying you're wrong but..."

She leans back, eyes squeezing shut, only for her to kick out at the side of the building.

WHAM! Thankfully, amidst the dust and the debris, there's a Barrier keeping everything safe. Hannah stalks past the newly opened exit to the Barrier-Midori-Ya, mumbling and cursing as she noms on a donut.

Yuuki and Nanoha both get a soft whimper from Boris before he follows along.
Nanoha Takamachi 2016-11-26 06:41:23 61496
Nanoha Takamachi frowns at Hannah very very hard as she leaves and looks to the exit and sighhhhhs a bit and walks out after Yuuki.

"You need to be more careful Yuuki." she says softly. "I made the same mistake before." she says.

"She left with a hole through the wall." she says.

She sighs and tries to smile. "Sometimes you just gotta wait to talk about that stuff. Okay? Just like Nicola did when we talked together before." she says softly. "Remember?" she asks.
Yuuki Oshiro 2016-11-26 06:46:31 61497
Yuuki Oshiro looks at Nanoha with a big frown on her face. "I... I didn't think. I'm so sorry. I thought she was good. I didn't know. I was trying to drop hints but you weren't getting them. I was trying to do my best. I'm so sorry."

The girl frowns and pulls out the card that Hannah gave to her and rips it up. "I don't want to get wrapped up in trouble. I want to help people not hurt people!" She states and sighs. "I hope... we can still be friends."
Nanoha Takamachi 2016-11-26 06:54:54 61498
Nanoha Takamachi head tilts. "Why would I not be your friend over a mistake I've made before?" she asks. "It's... easy to like Hannah-chan. But she still does bad things. Like rob banks and steal artifacts from museums and works with... well the group is called 'Eclipse'." she says.

"Like. Ever seen documentaries about the illuminati and stuff? That's basically Eclipse." she says softly as she sits next to Yuuki and gives her a biiiiiig Nanoha hug.

"Just. Now you gotta be careful. She likes to.. uh. Challenge. people." she says. "And she doesn't mean a VR sim..."
Yuuki Oshiro 2016-11-26 07:00:42 61499
Yuuki Oshiro sighs and hugs Nanoha tightly. "I didn't know." She frowns and wraps her arms around herself once the hug is broken. "I've been doing my best to not make a mistake like this. This just stinks." She sighs.

Quietly she looks at Shining Star and just shakes her head. "Maybe I wasn't supposed to be a Mage. I mean. I keep messing things up."

< Sister you are my Master now. You have full access to my functions. Just as your father did. During the training fight, you adapted and you fought with all you were. You used magic both known and unknown to me. That means that you are a mage and you are meant to be one. Do not think differently. >

Yuuki blinks and bites her bottom lip. "I... I'm sorry." She sighs.
Nanoha Takamachi 2016-11-26 07:10:53 61500
Nanoha Takamachi sighs and just shakes her head. "You can use your device. That alone is enough to know." she smiles. "But. That barrier is very indicative of a Mid-Childan magic user in any event." she says. "Which. If you want to start creating your own 'spells'...." she uses the term loosely.

"You'll need to get good at math. Trust me." she says with a series of fast nods.

She smiles. "Just be more careful. I don't exactly. Hide my identity I guess." she admits. "But I also been at this for a little longer now- and I don't tend to spout my identity randomly anymore after Hannah." she sighs miserably.
Yuuki Oshiro 2016-11-26 07:17:10 61501
Yuuki Oshiro looks at Nanoha, and just face palms. "I'm actually not too bad at math. I usually get between 85s and 90s on my math papers. It has never been terribly hard. I was trying to get your attention about things. I figured that if I said I needed help with Math it would click. I guess it didn't work."

She blushes, "I umm, I think I did create a spell. I didn't realize it when I did it but I think I created one. When you used that very powerful attack I casted one that Shining Star didn't know! It withstood a lot of your attack. It was really crazy." She shrugs.
Nanoha Takamachi 2016-11-26 07:28:16 61502
Nanoha Takamachi nods. "It's possible that your device just knew it too." she says. "-and responded." she says. "I spent months on Starlight Breaker--- modifying another of my more powerful attacks, 'Divine Buster'." she smiles.

"I don't tend to use Starlight Breaker in regular practice though. It always. Uses a lot of energy." she says. "When used for real." she says softly.

She head tilts. "That's a good starting point. By the way. Work on modifying your existing library. Or combine spells into one... Stardust Impact is just a Levitation and a Barrier spell merged into lifting and throwing boulders." she giggles.
Yuuki Oshiro 2016-11-26 07:33:27 61503
Yuuki Oshiro nods slowly as she thinks. "What I did... It was a combination of my light shield and a barrier spell and I used a lot of magic in it. Starfield Barrier... It was instinct. I just did the first thing that came to mind. Shining Star Warned me about how powerful your attack was and I reacted." She blushes.

"I think I have a lot to learn. I found out that Shining Star has another mode after I left you the other night. Melee mode! I used that to defeat a umm... Youma? It was nasty! I got all wet too. But A water monster! I fought it and beat it! I can't believe I actually beat it!"
Nanoha Takamachi 2016-11-26 07:36:07 61504
Nanoha Takamachi nods. "Youma are dangerous. You also generally can't. Talk them down." she says tapping her lip.

"Right There's another guy. He wears a labcoat and has long white hair and wears a creepy energy mask. His name is Riventon. He's sort of. A jerk mad scientist- who thinks everything is his. He'll probably try to take your device to rip it apart and study it. Even his own device is some... tourtured franeknstein of a Mid-childa and a Belkan device." she frowns. "Kind of trying to make a computer run two different OSes at once."
Yuuki Oshiro 2016-11-26 07:39:47 61505
Yuuki Oshiro frowns, "I won't let him take it. He can have Shining Star over my dead body!" She states in a very defensive attitude. "Shining Star is a part of my Daddy. If this Riventon tries I swear I will fight with all I am to keep him away from it."

The girl looks authentically angry and is being very defensive right now. No way in hell is she going to let anyone have the device. "Its like my Sister. I don't want to lose it." She states.
Nanoha Takamachi 2016-11-26 07:51:46 61506
Nanoha Takamachi nods. "Don't worry. Riventon isn't like Hannah. Like. You can talk to..and reason with Hannah. Riventon is just a plain jerk." she frowns. "Who's idea of experimentation is letting people get hurt and seeing what happens. Or trying to infuse things with 'dark energy'." she mutters.

She sighs and smiles a bit. "Come on. Let's go back inside and get some cider, okay? It's kinda chilly out here. Even in the barrier. Go ahead and dispell it and we'll go in~"
