Daisuke Hansuke is out of school and animal care club and is between the school buildings and dorm buildings right now as she slings his blazer over his shoulder, remaining largely in that burgundy undershirt as he runs a hand through his purple hair a moment as he sighs.

"Busy day. I need to take a break. Helping people is good but I need a break." he says. "I'll call up some places and see if they can survive without me for a week." he asks out loud as he shrugs. He's not talking to anyone specific. "I haven't seen the guys for a bit anyways and I feel twitchy because of the past week. Ugh. Has it really been over a year?" he says as he thinks about it.

The grass is starting to green. Spring will be here soon. That's good. "Hopefully like space dwarves don't invade and join the space elves and maybe we can get to manageable." he says.

There's another reason, maybe, for Daisuke to be twitchy. It might not be something he picks up on at first, but as he draws closer to a particular tree, it might grow until he takes notice of the long flowing black hair sneaking out on the side, and then there's a girl who's not in the school uniform of any of the schools around here - a white sailor uniform with black accents and a red gem.

And it's Sailor Earth, but she isn't looking hostile, instead she holds up a hand to Daisuke and greets him with a simple "Yo." that might be familiar, in a way, to anyone that's spent time at the ECFH - and at the same time, probably a little disturbing coming out of not-Mamoru's mouth.

"You got a moment or a few?"
Daisuke Hansuke 2017-03-09 18:26:08 72998
Daisuke Hansuke stops at the 'yo' and turns around and maybe that's why he's super twitchy right now. Black and white with a red gem. A sailor uniform. He readjusts the blazer he's carrying over his shoulder. If he had glasses he'd probably readjust them too. Because doing anything before answering would be better than that right now.

He knows who this individual is in so far as that one meeting and slight discussion. He purses his lips and stands up straight. He kind of wants to say something snide, but that isn't Daisuke's way when he isn't being teasing or kidding around with friends. He's kind and considerate, or tries to be. And besides the initial meeting with the policemen- she hasn't exactly done much else. Right?

"Hey." he says. It's a polite tone, rather than a happy to see you tone. "Sure. I have a moment." he says. "I was just heading to my dorm." he says.

Yeah that's a twitchy feeling. Why. Should he be reaching for his cellphone just in case? His hands don't go into his pockets yet.

She takes a step closer. She's not in a fighting pose, doesn't seem to be emitting energy or prepared. She's in her henshin, but it's not like anyone's ever seen her out of henshin. And her tone isn't hostile.

"You're like. From the old Kingdom, right? Originally speaking. Past lives." she notes, more affirmative than questioning. "So... it's just us, now. You can't tell me you don't remember things the right way, not with that imposter. It's not like they'd believe me if I told em' anyways."

"I mean. I remember you. Sorta. It's fuzzy."

Daisuke Hansuke 's eyes appraise Sailor Earth. She isn't taking a threating stance and not bleeding charging energy. She's just here and this takes a little of the edge off. Not much but enough for him to relax his hold on the blazer that seemed tense. If this person wanted to fight, she'd had opened with it. It's not like he poses a threat here. He isn't a deadly fighter like Kunzite and he doesn't have the power to cape tank like Mamoru.

"Yes. I am." he says with politeness still. "Someone from the old kingdom in the past life." he says.

His eyes look her up and down a bit as he purses his lip. "I want you to think and search. Think very hard." he says.

"When I met the person who you claim to be an impostor, he knew my name innately the first time he met me."

"So if you want me to begin to re-evaluate my memories, and take this claim seriously." he says with a deep breath.

"Tell me my name." he says. "Not this name."

"The other name." he says.
Takashi Agera 2017-03-09 19:01:29 73001
Sailor Earth's brow visibly furrows. It's not a thing she really picked up on and there's so much traffic, mentally speaking, whenever she's around Mamoru, and that's not... so much what she's been focusing on pulling from the empathetic link. So she's annoyed. It starts to show.

"Man, I'm still putting all of that together. I know it's like. Ask -something. Maybe starts with Asp? Something about snakes." She leans against the tree. "Wasn't expecting a test."

"That's not important though. What is important, is what you feel." And, truth be told, there's a little bit of the same feeling as being near Mamoru, it's just distorted. You could pull unease or ease out of that feeling, depending on what you were looking for.
Daisuke Hansuke 2017-03-09 19:14:59 73002
Daisuke Hansuke takes a deep breath. "Sailor Earth." he says. "What you're claiming is severe. I apologize if all of us have been intensely unforthcoming but you're asking us to question people that many people literarily died for who've made promises to them and keep them and do many good things for many people." he says.

"Asclepius." he says. "That's my name. I was the royal physician. That is. I saw to the well being of nobility up to and including the prince." he says.

"What I remember in detail I like to keep to myself. What is vague and cloudy I still like to keep to myself. I stopped obsessing over these things. They are important to me, but I am not that man in my past life dreams. There are shades of him in me. His physical appearance and demeanor and powers and desires. But I have my own goals and desires in this life that he didn't." he says. "And some of us are the same way. Not all of us. Some continue where we left off, in a way. Others have not." he says.

"Sailor Earth. What are your goals?" he asks. "I do not mean. Sailor Earth's goals, or the Princess's who you claim to be goals. I mean. Your goals. Surely, you're someone besides this Sailor Earth like all of us. Right?" he asks.
Takashi Agera 2017-03-09 19:37:10 73003
The girl looks at Ascelpius, sort of mentally commiting the name to memory. "Look, kid. You called him the Prince and I'm going to let that slide, but I'm here to set the record straight. And if I'm wrong - on the offchance - then I don't know what to say cause I feel this in my bones, and I'm not anything BUT Sailor Earth."

She looks around. "I know you guys can just take off your outfit, being Asclepius or Tuxedo Liarface or Sailor Someotherplanet and then not like you're turning off a light, but I don't have that option."

"So my only goal is to set this straight and stop having my power stolen by a charlatan and his friends. Because I'm Sailor Earth and I'm not anything else and I don't need to be anything else because this is my planet."
Daisuke Hansuke 2017-03-09 20:02:58 73005
Daisuke Hansuke is trying really hard to be open minded about this. He's willing to admit when he's wrong. Or there's a mistake. But.

If Mamoru wasn't the prince. Why was Beryl obsessed with him and not this girl? Why did Usagi gravitate toward's him and not this girl. Why do all four Shitennou have generally the same memories he can match up with his own? All the evidence, even the stuff Mamoru just don't have control of like Beryl just doesn't make sense to him.

"I'm really sorry, Sailor Earth." he says. "I don't remember." he says. "Do you need to find evidence? I'm willing to help with that. But if we also don't find any, or, we find otherwise you need to accept /that/ too." he says.

Whether or not this is true or not, it's clear there's something there. Even I can feel it a little." he says. "But it also doesn't feel 'quite right'. And it's clear this is hurting you. That isn't fair to you. But it also isn't fair to accuse Chiba-kun of stealing something from you when we're not sure that's what happened or if it even did." he says.

"What do /you/ remember?" he asks. "Are you willing to tell me?" he asks.
Takashi Agera 2017-03-09 20:09:58 73006
Sailor Earth frowns a bit. "I remember Beryl. I remember that really clearly. But that was after. Beryl was after him because he was me." She can almost see that she's not making any sense. In a way she's not trying to, either. She's not supposed to. She's supposed to keep them off balance and distracted.

"I mean. A lot of it's fuzzy. It's clearer when he's around but it also really upsets me to be around him." She grumbles. "There's probably not any evidence. This was like. A time. Before time?"

"I remember the palace. I remember my mother. But it's more... feelings... than clear remembering."
Daisuke Hansuke 2017-03-09 20:38:58 73007
Daisuke Hansuke searches Sailor Earth's face for signs of sincerity. He gets more confused than that. But that doesn't mean a lie, just means she's confused because she doesn't remember. But... maybe there is evidence. There are four palaces. Palaces that were /trapped in time/ since that age to a degree.

He wants to search them now. Maybe there's anything there. A carved relief hidden in vines, items that could suggest a female presence than a male one when it comes to royalty. He doesn't say this out loud. But he's going to probably ask to explore them.

Less more he thinks he may be wrong, more... this person claiming to be Sailor Earth. Who is upset and apparently hurt by these things.

Well it's most certainly going to distract Daisuke, for at least a while. It's successful on that front.

"I think it's wrong to discount your feelings." he says softly. "But I'm going to try to do some honest research and looking into this." he says.

"There's not much I can do- I'm not exactly Mercury here, but I will do my best." he says with a soft sigh. Well so much for a break from helping people.

"Because if you do have vauge feelings, you should feel that I help people, as best I can most of all. Right?" he asks.
Takashi Agera 2017-03-09 20:50:39 73008
Sailor Earth smiles - just a bit. "It's nice to find someone who will help me, rather than discount me or attack me. I wouldn't be so hostile if I didn't have to be. My energy is being taken, my people are taken, my PLANET is taken. I only want what I should have and nothing more."

"But I guess I can see it your way. It's hard, without evidence." This meant she'd need to spend more time around Mamoru, which risked detection, but that was the only way she'd be able to understand and experience memories enough to work with. "With just my feelings, against your feelings, everyone else's feelings."

"And I'm here to rock the boat, after some major events had just happened. I understand it would be difficult."
Daisuke Hansuke 2017-03-09 21:11:14 73009
Daisuke Hansuke nods. "Just because I want to help doesn't think you may be right. But people just shouldn't discount feelings either." he says softly. "-and that's what lots of people seem to be doing." he says.

"I'm willing to act as a go between." he says. "If you believe that you are grating." he says. He motions to the boy's dorm. "I live in the dorms here. You can find me in the directory if you need me." he says.

"It's my suggestion you wait a few weeks because right now is a fragile time for us. You will have a much better response when people have been given enough time to process this last year." he says quietly.

"I should get to my dorm room now." he says. "Is that okay?" he asks softly.

"Or do you have more questions for me? I'm willing to answer, if I know."
Takashi Agera 2017-03-09 21:48:50 73010
"Sure, it's okay. I didn't mean to keep you." Earth says, a bit softly. "I just ...felt you were here and wanted to see if it was a good time."

"I'll contact you, sooner or later, I'm sure of that. But thank you. For listening." Some part of her actually means that - she doesn't have the energy for a fight, not a real one, and was looking for some sort of a way in. That genuine gratitude might come across.

"Just... don't fault me too much. When someone's stealing from you - your energy, your pedigree - it's personal."
Daisuke Hansuke 2017-03-09 21:54:42 73011
Daisuke Hansuke has been genuinely thanked a lot in his life that he can determine if a thank you is genuine. This one sounds genuine. That only cements it a little that he needs to find something for better or worse.

He might consult Ami, too. She may have access to information too. Whether or not the truth is being told, she does believe it. That's enough for him.

"You're welcome." he says with a more thankful smile.

"Hopefully I'll have something to tell you when you visit me next here." he says. He gives a soft bow-- Japan's handshake- and begins back toward's his dorm.

Now where is he going to start. He should talk to others first.
