Unmei Tama knocked on the door a few times, before, slowly, pulling it open. "Ummm... Kun? You here? Kun?" she called out. Nervously she stepped inside and... didn't go any further. Why?

It was kun's home. She did NOT like to go too far without him being there. Heck, even this made her a little nervous. "There's this really fun documentary going on, about go? I thought you might want to watch it with me? If that's okay? Kun, are you here? I ummm... I'm on the door step. Not coming any further. Kun?" Awww, so needy.

The little black fox has been exploring again. All the way up to the roof, then back through the various livingrooms and kitchens, nibbling on foods, and sniffing at possible dens and foxholes.

By this point, Ayana has arranged a dress or robe or other set of clothes in nearly every room, hidden away stashed beneath furniture, or behind books on a shelf, or in a cabinet out of the way: out of sight, but where she can easily get to it when needed.

But for now, the little fox is perfectly content to be herself, trotting merrily through the apartments in search of a place to take her next nap. The only clothing she sports is the lovely blue collar with her nametag and Ikiko's contact information on it. But then, animals don't tend to require a lot of clothing.

The sound of an unfamiliar voice draws Ayana towards Kunzite's door, where she stops and peers at the girl's back, curiously. Sitting nearly three meters away, the little fox watches a moment, then wags all four of her tails and lets out a soft-voiced little, "Yap yap!"
Magical Girl Clotho 2017-03-22 07:06:55 73842
Unmei Tama turned back, stared for a moment. "What a cute pu--" Then her eyes went wide. "Oh crap crap you're A FOX!" And just backed up, slamming into the door and letting out a freaked out shriek. "Please tell me you're magical something that's good and not an actual wild fox that one of the boys brought in as a pet or something I don't want to be mangled!"

Unmei, queen of the over reactions. Though, in this case, she... wasn't... altogether wrong. After all, a fox could be dangerous.
Ayana Tasogare 2017-03-22 07:14:23 73844
The fox stumbles back a few steps at Unmei's panic, big sapphire eyes widening in startlement and surprise. She bumps her butt right into the wall, then plops down to a seat. This human makes no sense. Mangled!? She's not food! Why on earth would she be mangled?

The kitsune takes several long moments to try and figure out what to do--time for Unmei to calm down? Maybe, but time enough for the kitsune to make a decision.

And that decision, it seems, is to dart past Unmei--tails brushing against the girl's legs--and into Kunzite's rooms, just deep enough to duck her nose beneath the couch. A moment later the fox re-emerges, tugging a blue kimono with her teeth as she does. Once the robe is out far enough, the fox ducks beneath it ... and grows. Soon enough, she's a girl, draping the yukata around herself carefully, foxy ears perked up and directed towards Unmei. When she's through tying it on, Ayana rises and peers at Unmei with the same blue eyes as the fox. "Are you crazy?"
Magical Girl Clotho 2017-03-22 07:18:40 73845
Unmei Tama stared at her a few moments. Then opened her mouth. Closed her mouth. Then opened it. She kinda looked out to the side. "W-well... I mean... I... Kun says I have a lot of mental issues and... and I guess crazy might be one of them. I mean, I'm not part of the... magic thing any more, but, I kind of have some issues still I guess..."

And now she looked remarkably like a scolded child. Who... might actually cry. Especially sitting on the ground like that.
Ayana Tasogare 2017-03-22 07:22:04 73847
"Well I'm not crazy," Ayana says matter-of-factly, "I'm just a fox. And foxes don't mangle people! Even wild foxes. I mean, not unless you trap us in a corner and scare us and then we still don't really mangle people because we're not big enough."

There's a brief pause while Ayana considers the girl, her ears flicking slightly in annoyance. "I'm Ayana," she introduces herself. "I'm not going to mangle you, and even if you're crazy, well, I'm a fox. And they say people are crazy like a fox, and I'm not crazy," she said that already, "so um. That doesn't make you very crazy." Pause, nosewrinkle, eartwitch. "Who are you?"
Magical Girl Clotho 2017-03-22 07:28:24 73850
Unmei Tama nodded, kind of meekly huddling against the door, legs hugged o her chest and nodding. "O-okay. I..." She chewed on her lower lip. "I'm sorry..." she mumbled, her head lower. "I-I just, I mean, I thought... I've never seen a fox up close. I mean, I saw a coyote once, but that wasn't... the same I guess I don't know why I brought it up... sorry..."

She poked her fingers together. "I-I'm Unmei. I live here. Well, sorry. I live in Zoi's room. Kinda. For the time being. I guess. Sorry."
Ayana Tasogare 2017-03-22 07:43:00 73854
Ayana's ears flicker back along her head, and her nose twitches in irritation. She glares at Unmei, and then it vanishes, back to a calmer appearance, her ears forward and alert but on aggressively poised. "Well, now you've seen one up close," she says, tossing her black hair a little airily. "Coyotes are stupid dogs. They're not nearly as pretty as a fox. Nor as clever."

Here, she pauses and glares at Unmei, then frowns again and leans forward, "Why are you apologizing every several words? I didn't ask you to apologize, or act offended. If you live here then you shouldn't be sorry. I live here, too. But I haven't picked where, yet. Saito-senpai and Mamoru-kun said I can make a den wherever I want, except the places marked with the um ..." she pauses and thinks back, "I think the green pencil? I think I'm not supposed to have the green pencil. But I can have the blue one."
Magical Girl Clotho 2017-03-22 07:46:04 73855
Unmei Tama nodded. "y-yeah. Foxes are really pretty. I love their tails. You have a really pretty tail. you're really pretty." Then... her cheeks turned scarlet. "Oh stars I said that out loud..." She covered her face with he hands.

She still wasn't all herself, that awkward boy who had no idea WHAT he was doing was still in there under that girl and she was trying so, so hard and she chose the wrong person to meet. She was just sooooo baaaaaad at this!

"Do... you want a chicken burrito?" she offered. "It has sour cream and salsa and stuff..."
Ayana Tasogare 2017-03-22 07:50:56 73858
"I have four pretty tails," Ayana says proudly, raising her chin a little. "And I prefer to be a fox. I'm not supposed to be a girl. Iki-chan wants me to be a girl. And sometimes I want to be one for her. But ..." she trails off, then shrugs a little, uncertain of herself. "It's tough trying to pretend to be something I'm not."

Wrinkling her nose, Ayana drops the topic long enough for Unmei to offer food. It's like a magic keyword. 'Do you want food?' Ayana's eyes widen, and she practically pounces forward, bounding right up to Unmei. Hands on either side of the girl's leg, Ayana practically pushes her nose against Unmei's. "I love chicken," she whispers quietly. Her whole yukata is shifting back and forth, as the mess of tails bunched up beneath it try to wag in her excitement.
Magical Girl Clotho 2017-03-22 07:54:38 73859
Unmei Tama blinked a few times. "Pretending to be... oh yeah... preaching to the choir, there," she mumbled. "Had to be something I wasn't for years due to... well... that's over now. Kun and Mamo are making sure of that. I--"

Then that. She yiped. Her cheeks turned bright, bright red. "I-I... I ummm... o-okay then. Err, c-come with me," she squeaked. Barely resisting the urge to kiss the girl(Thank you Kun!) before heading off, quickly, to her fridge. Well, zoi's fridge. And inside... burritoes! Made of rice and salsa and CHICKEN! Glorious CHICKEN! She put some on a tortilla... then some of the filling on the side as well. "I like chicken, too. Chicken and hamburger. I ummm... I'm learning to cook. A bit. And chicken is easy for me to eat without getting sick. S-so I make... a lot of it. If you ever want any. Kun's teaching me."
Ayana Tasogare 2017-03-22 08:01:39 73860
Ayana moves just enough to let Unmei get up and go to the kitchen. She follows along readily enough, bounding on all fours for the first few steps until she remembers she's a girl again. She pushes up to her feet and walks the rest of the way to the kitchen.

When the chicken comes out, she snitches a bite straight out of the bowl while Unmei puts it in a burrito.

It's gone into her mouth and swallowed before Unmei even has a chance to say a word about it.

"I can cook," Ayana says excitedly. "When I was a familiar, my master would forget to eat a lot. So I taught myself to cook so I could make sure he was eating. But then one of the sailor people set me on fire because I was trying to drain a girl, and I couldn't cook anymore because of the fire, so my master bought me a really special stove that didn't use fire? And then Iki-chan made me not a familiar anymore, and convinced Inari-kami to make me a real girl even though I'm not one hundred, yet, and then her family let me cook for them because I eat too much. But they have an electric stove so it's okay."

Was there a point to any of this story? Probably not. But there's food and she's got to distract herself from eating it all before it's offered somehow.
Magical Girl Clotho 2017-03-22 08:04:31 73861
Unmei Tama nodded, blinking a few times. She then shrugged and just put the whole bowl in the microwave. "Really? A familiar? That... wait, like a magic familiar? That's... pretty cool! So you're like a magical girl mascot, I guess. For... Inari-kami? Or... Iki... or... one of them?" she asked with a small smile. "That's pretty cool. I've never met a familiar before. Or, well, knowingly."

She paused and then sighed. "Can... I ummmm... Thank you. Err. I mean. Can i... I..."

She sighed. "You... shouldn't let people force you to be what you don't want to be. What you... hate being. I guess. I... I know it can hurt... but sometimes it hurts more to... not be yourself... I guess..."
Ayana Tasogare 2017-03-22 08:08:27 73862
Ayana opens her mouth, then closes it, then opens it again, then closes it again. She stares at Unmei like she's asked if the weather is orange. Her ears flicker, and she reaches up to adjust her robe again, then explains, "I was a familiar. For Riventon," she explains. "He made me a girl, and his familiar. I was just a fox before that. And I wasn't a mascott! I had real power, and could do magical things! But then Iki-chan--Ikiko, she's Cute Wolf Tsukiko--and her friend Reiko--she's Prism Keeper Orange--freed me from him. Kinda. I didn't really want to be freed, so they kinda tricked me into a ritual that broke his power. But then I was just a fox again, and I forgot most of what I was? It was confusing. And I was a really weird ugly color, not pretty black like I'm supposed to be.

"Anyways," Ayana says, hovering closer to the microwave to peer in as it warms the food. "Then they went and talked to the sailor person who set me on fire, and she helped them go into a spirit place and talk to Inari-kami--that's the kami of foxes and wine and industry and creativity and lots of other things. And Inari-kami agreed to let me be a girl again early, if I was a magical girl. So now I'm a magical girl, but um ... I'm kinda bad at it, because I don't like being a girl sometimes, and I can't fight like other girls can, and I sorta still drain people when I'm upset."
Magical Girl Clotho 2017-03-22 08:13:00 73863
Unmei Tama nodded, listening firmly. Then, when it was all done, she took out the bowl, walked to the table, sat down... and then pushed the bowl to the opposite side. "Help yourself. And... I know how you feel. Kind of. I... i was a magical girl. But I lost my powers. I was... working for bad people. But then things got out of control. I was the embodiment of gluttony, and it was disgusting, and I can't even touch food most the time now." She was looking a little bony.

"And as a magical girl... heck, as a villain, I sucked at it. I mean, wow. I was the worst fighter. It always ended up with me getting humiliated. And then I'd turn people dark with the power of their sins and... well, it was stupid. But now Mamo and Kun have me and they're helping me be me. Without the whole... needing magic to do it, thing."
Ayana Tasogare 2017-03-22 08:20:01 73864
Dangerous words, those: 'help yourself'. Ayana grabs the bowl and starts shoving chicken into her mouth, foregoing the whole concept of burritos in favor of just eating the chicken. Even reheated chicken is pretty much her favourite food. (Let's ignore her feelings on fish, beef, tofu, and pork for this conversation. 'Favourite' is relative, okay.)

Mouth full of food, Ayana asks, "Gluttony?" She manages not to spit any on the table in the process! It's amazing! She chews, swallows, then grins, demonstrating that--yes--even magical foxgirls have canid fangs. "I was a better magical girl as a familiar. I beat up some really powerful magical girls when I was Riventon's. But I like not being a slave more than I liked being powerful. I think." She pauses to consider that for a moment, then says, "Yeah. But. I just ... sometimes I have to be a fox. So that's why I'm here. Because I can't just be a fox at Iki-chan's house. Her parents make me go to school, and foxes aren't meant to go to school."
Magical Girl Clotho 2017-03-22 08:23:59 73865
Unmei Tama blinked a few times and watched and... and looked like she was going to throw up. She just stared as the girl ate and talked. Finally, her hand covered her mouth and she RAN off.

There was the sound of wretching from the bathroom and Unmei was... on her back, covered in a thin layer of sweat. She hadn't actually thrown up, but she'd come deathly close. She shook her head. "I-I'll come back out... out wen you're done, okay?"

Her mind struggled to process the things she'd heard. "Y-yeah. Being... powerful and a slave sucks. I much more prefer not being a slave myself. It's funner. My girl friend likes it, too. Though I kinda feel... useless, a lot. Since everyone here is more... capable than me. I can't even do magic any more, I... really have nothing to contribute."
Ayana Tasogare 2017-03-22 08:31:10 73868
The kitsune blinks in surprise, both ears flicking upwards. She flat-out stops eating while Unmei runs to the bathroom, and her ears twitch in confusion. Once Unmei explains, Ayana chews and swallows, then looks back down into the bowl. "But ... it's just chicken," she says, then licks her lips and digs into the bowl to consume it as quickly as she can.

Unfortunately, being a big eater doesn't always mean being a fast eater. As a girl, she's got a much larger mouth than she has as a fox, but she can still only shove so much into her face without choking herself. She doesn't chew as much as she should, but still manages to get it all down.

Eventually, it's gone, and Ayana glances after Unmei again. There's a few moments where she hesitates, and then suddenly the kimono is just a pile of cloth floating down to rest on the chair where she was sitting. The bowl is left on the table. The mess is left behind. Kunzite will probably find it later. Or Zoisite will.

The little fox bounds down from the chair, then prances its way towards the bathroom. Poking its nose around the corner, sapphire eyes peer at Unmei where she lies on the bathroom floor. "Yap."
Magical Girl Clotho 2017-03-22 08:39:37 73870
Unmei Tama blinked and then glanced up. She smiled and motioned the gox over. If she was okay with it, Unmei would gently stroke the fox's ears, holding her in her lap and softly, delicately pet her. "S-sorry. I was... I'm just pathetic," she mumbled.

"I was... trapped. As Gluttony. All I could do was eat and eat and eat. It hurt. So, so much. I was so hungry, but no matter what I ate, or what I did, it just kept... coming. I stuffed so much into my mouth, it was all burned away by magic and..." She shivered.

"When I... eat... I can remember that. I remember it all going into mush." She'd hug the fox, then. And there were tears, soft ones. "I can still feel it. in my mouth. Everything. This just... mush in my mouth. And the pain. So much pain when I stopped eating." She whimpered again.

"I-I'm sorry. I'm... just a useless and pathetic girl Mamo and kun took pity on..."
Ayana Tasogare 2017-03-22 08:45:34 73872
The little fox is all too happy to be petted. The only thing better than a full tummy are ear-rubs. Every fox knows this! She leans into the scritches contentedly, little eyes half-lidding as she purrs against Unmei's stomach almost like a cat.

The kitsune's four fluffy tails all slowly wag to and fro as Unmei explains her problems; not because of the explanation, but because of the pettings, of course! When the tears start flowing, though, the little fox glances up at Unmei, then twists in her lap, and uses Unmei's chest as a wall for her forepaws. She stretches up to the full limit of her tiny body-length, then licks at Unmei's tears. Foxslobber is probably not reducing the amount of wet on Unmei's face, but she's trying to clean them way. Honest! It's not until she calls herself useless that the affectionate grooming stops, to be replaced by a low growl of disapproval. The fox leans its head back and stares, eye-to-eye, at Unmei. Words are difficult to communicate in this form, but the meaning is clear: something Unmei said has irritated the fox.
Magical Girl Clotho 2017-03-22 08:49:20 73874
Unmei Tama blinked and stared into the eyes. Yes, so very, very cute. "I... I know. Kun doesn't like it when i say that about myself, either. He's... really good at making me feel better. I'm sorry. He... he tells me it doesn't matter if I can't do anything. All I have to do is learn and grow. That's my only job now. Even if I'm useless now, i won't be forever. I hope."

She close her eyes. "I doubt I could ever pay them back for what they've done for me. They... saved me..." She gently smiled and scritched the fox. "You're so cute..."
Ayana Tasogare 2017-03-22 08:50:59 73875
There it is again: 'useless'. It earns an immediate bark of disapproval, and another glare from the tiny little fox.

But the ear-scritchings resume, and she's being complimented for being cute. What fox can possibly resist such affections!? Not this fox, that's for sure. Her glare turns into an eye-rolling apprecation, and soon the little fox is pressing herself against Unmei's chest, trying to cuddle all the closer, purring like a newborn kitten.
Magical Girl Clotho 2017-03-22 09:02:09 73877
Unmei Tama smiles and then... "Well... i guess if you like me, foxy, I'm not useless." She hugged the fox to her chest, arms around her neck and head to gently cradle it and scritch her ears.

"... would... you like to make your den in my room? We could... snuggle. If that's okay. Sorry. I like... I just like having something to hold. A-and you're warm and... soft and... adorable. Sorry if that's weird. I'm not good at... social... things."
Ayana Tasogare 2017-03-22 09:06:33 73878
Here is the problem with being a fox. Because it's difficult to explain nuances of why when you don't have a voice. The little fox blinks her eyes, and shifts, and squirms a little, then finally manages to wind her way out of Unmei's arms. Four furry tails brush lightly on Unmei's skin as the fox makes her way out of the bathroom. Then, a moment later, there's a girl there, poking her head back in, but keeping her body hidden around the corner of the door. Her fox ears are drooped down to either side of her head, almost like she's sad. "It's not that I don't want to snuggle with you?" Ayana explains. "But ... I kinda want to make my den alone, right now. If I wanted to snuggle up with a girl, I'd go home to Iki-chan. She's my girlfriend and she loves cuddling me while we sleep. And maybe sometimes I'll come cuddle you while you sleep because I like doing that, but um. I don't want to make my den there. Sorry."
Magical Girl Clotho 2017-03-22 09:10:43 73879
Unmei Tama turned even redder and looked a little... well, hurt. "O-oh, right. I guess... yes. I ummm, right. Sorry. Just forget I said it, okay? I just, err, I-I'll get a... stuffed animal, or something. Sorry. I didn't mean to... make you uncomfortable or anything."

Her cheeks were on fire and she couldn't help but stare a little towards the girl. Was... was the girl... naked? Oh my gosh she was just down the hall from a NAKED girl. AHHHHHH! Well, okay, she was a girl but this was completely different!
Ayana Tasogare 2017-03-22 09:13:52 73880
Ayana frowns at Unmei irritatedly. "Would you please stop apologizing? Geeze, it's annoying. Anyways, you're not going to make me uncomfortable, and if you do I'll just bite you and run away." She smiles, and her ears perk up a little at the idea. "Just keep making me chicken, and I'll gladly come around often. I like chicken. Although I like fishes more. And beef. And pork. And tofu. And eggs. Ohhh man, now I want a sandwhich," she whines, ears immediately drooping down towards her chin. Her eyes tell the story of sadness to go with her ears. "Iki-chan won't be able to get me my sandwich if I'm here," she considers, then looks to Unmei. "I need to go," she explains. "I gotta go text my girlfriend and ask her if she can maybe bring me a sandwich to morrow at the park or something. Stop apologizing," she says. And then she's gone. An instant later, the fox trots by the door, heading towards the main apartment again.
