The Indigo Angel Tenshi Pet Aid Concert!

Seth, Ichiko and Sayaka go to the concert. Unfortunately, after a few hours, a youma attacks and ruins everything! Seth, however, gets a new pet... and so does Sumire.

Sumire Tenshi 2017-09-15 23:08:43 82876
It was an outdoor festival, with all kinds of animals and agencies being set up. Children were running around, petting them. There were cute little puppies, and kitties, and geckos, and...

The thing that had sumire the most baffled. The pig. She was dressed in a coat, sun glasses, all that. Walking around a bit while they set up the stage and... the pig had bit on her coat side and wouldn't let go. She didn't want to yell out for help, for fear of being noticed too early. But the pig wouldn't. Let. GO!

She was literally losing a contest to a PIG! Guhhhh!

There were candies and games, but mostly it was about adopting pets. There were even a few people with a 'get your own mascot!' display. Cause pets were like a magical girl's mascot, right?
Ikiko Hisakata 2017-09-15 23:25:13 82880
Ikiko Hisakata was over helping out with one of the agencies that had dogs up for adoption. The agency ran an animal shelter, and Ikiko would volunteer there every couple weeks or so, feeding the animals or bringing in lost dogs.

(More accurately, the "lost" dogs were actually strays that had mentioned wanting to settle down with a home. They'd tell Ikiko about it, and then she'd bring them in so they could be adopted out.)

Of the animals this agency had available for adoption, Ikiko was paying attention to two of them in particular -- a pair of would-be-former strays looking for a home. "Remember, be kind and polite, and I'm sure someone will want to take you home," she quietly woofed in caninspeak as she skritched their heads. The two dogs grinned and gave soft barks of acknowledgement.

The agency person running the booth just gave Ikiko a soft smile; the young girl had a rep for getting along well with dogs and vice versa, and her habit of occasionally woofing at dogs was just chalked up as an eccentricity.
Sayaka Miki 2017-09-15 23:33:45 82881
Oooh, so many cute pets! she didn't know where to start! Of course, Saya had always wanted a pet and her parents were sure rich enough to afford her. They'd even given her their blessing when she set out for the festival in search of a cute and cuddly who was hopefully not too exotic.

As she wanders around, Saya Spurs Sumire first. With a pig. "Awwwe how cute! Is she yours?" she is hesitant to help her disentangle herself from the pig. Because maybe that's just how she walks the thing, who knows?
Sumire Tenshi 2017-09-15 23:51:10 82886
Of course, dogs were ALWAYS a favorite at these kinds of things. Obedient little dogs to play with kids and protect them? Who wouldn't love them? So they get lots and lots of pets from kids who, as long as the dogs behave, beg them to take them home.

Of course, then there were the young kids and the delinquints. The ones who liked to tug on hair, try to ride the dogs and yank tails...

Sumire urked. "No, it's not. In fact, I seem to be having difficulty getting it to let me go," she said through gritted teeth as it kept tugging on her coat. "Little... creature. Let me go..." she growled, trying to shove it off her. "Get off me..." Behind her glasses she was getting a bit.... twitchy. No. Maiming a pig would draw undue attention to herself. Might get her found out... and if word got out that the star of the show maimed a pig... well...
Ikiko Hisakata 2017-09-16 00:00:44 82889
Her part in helping the agency set up complete, Ikiko gives the two dogs a final pat on the head, then waves to the agency person before heading off to enjoy the rest of the festival. While she's not really looking for a pet, she does enjoy seeing happy animals.

As she wanders around, Ikiko notices a familiar face in conversation with someone with an awkward pig. "Hi, Sayaka!" Ikiko waves, heading over to see what is going on with that pig. She tilts her head in puzzlement at the girl in the coat and glasses, as if trying to recognize them, but she shakes her head -- no sense trying to puzzle it out right now.
Sayaka Miki 2017-09-16 00:07:10 82891
Sayaka Miki hmms, "Well, she sure seems fond of you, aren't you, piggy wiggy?" she tickles said piggy under the chinney and pulls out a bag of popcorn, trying to lure piggy away. "Here, you hungry?"

When Ikiko comes around, she smiles and nods at her cheerfully, "Ikiko-chan, Heey! It's been a while, how are you? looking for a pet too?"
Sumire Tenshi 2017-09-16 00:16:58 82894
Sumire Tenshi eeped as a second girl came by. Two of them, now? She was starting to get a crowd. However.... the lure of food seemed to do it. It tugged on the coat a few more times, then went for the popcorn and... tried to nom on some. Nom nom nom.

The girl let out a sigh of relief. "Thank you very much for your assistance," she said, bowing her head politely and giving a warm smile. Despite her hood and glasses, she seemed relatively polite and gentle.
Seth Locke 2017-09-16 00:24:00 82896
He got an invite from Sayaka, inviting him to this event. Seth considered his options, and viewed this as a chance to get his sister, Amanda, to take her mind off things and actually experience something relaxing and cute. So, his request to Sayaka was to get him two invites.

So, when he enters, dressed up in a sepia blazer and pants with a black t-shirt. Amanda, on the other hand, is the light to his darkness, wearing a white sundress, the edge of the dress complete with pink floral patterns, with a hat, shoes, and bag in the same matching pink color.

Seth looks around for the bluenette...
Ikiko Hisakata 2017-09-16 00:24:25 82897
"Family issues keep me from having a pet, unfortunately," Ikiko sighs in reply to Sayaka. "Doesn't mean that I can't enjoy seeing them, though!"

She crouches next to the pig, thinking for a moment before hesitantly skritching the top of its head. Hard to tell if what a dog enjoys also works for pigs, after all -- and come to think of it, how different are the animal dialects between caninespeak and whatever pigs use?

    (Do pigs actually speak Pig Latin?)
Sayaka Miki 2017-09-16 00:48:09 82898
Sayaka Miki smiles and nods, "You're welcome! I guess the piggy really liked you but she came in a little strong! I didn't expect to see a pig here though, wonder whose it is?" she pets piggy and gives her scritches as she feeds from the popcorn badly. "Gee that's too bad Ikiko-chan. I always wanted a pet. If no one claims piggy, maybe I will take her.." Finally she spies a Seth in the crowds and waves to him. "Seth Kun! Over here!"
Sumire Tenshi 2017-09-16 00:55:31 82899
The pig nuzzles the hand, nibbling on the popcorn for a bit. Then it burps and turns and just plows back into Sumire, sending her toppling down with a shriek, landing as the pig just noms on her coat. Her eyes narrowed. "Why you little... err..."

The hood on her coat had come down partially ,revealing the purple braided hair. And the glasses had come off one ear, revealing a purple eye. She quickly covered them back up, trying to hide in her coat. "Err, bad... big."

The key problem being, of course, the fact her face was plastered all over the concert hall, her hair and all. So it was kind of hard to just brush that off. "So you know how to take care of pigs?!" she tried rapid fire, trying to look off to the side and definitely not change the subject.
Ikiko Hisakata 2017-09-16 01:13:17 82900
"I've heard that they're relatively easy to take care of," Ikiko remarks, trying to stifle a smile at the overenthusiastic pig. And the flash of purple was enough; between the posters for this festival and the interrupted debut concert, she recognizes Sumire. Well, no need to mention it; on the other hand, it is nice to see another magical girl, even if it's an extremely reluctant one.

"Maybe your coat smells of grain?" Ikiko inquires, trying to gently tug the pig away from the idol singer.
Seth Locke 2017-09-16 01:18:44 82901
Seth Locke turns his head in the direction of the source of that voice calling him, and there he finds the bluenette he was looking for. He smiles and approaches her, "Sayaka-chan, hello. How're you?" He looks at the pig situation, and he chuckles politely at the scene. "Maybe the pig wants some corn?"

Amanda also smiles, though at this point she says nothing just yet.
Sumire Tenshi 2017-09-16 01:41:49 82902
Sumire Tenshi stared at the pig and then yelped when it broke free and then.... Boop. "GAHHHHH!" she shrieked. Turning away and shoving it off and wiping her face. "It... it kissed me! Gahhh! That's, that.... you can't do that!" She got to her feet and in a flurry of power and might... hid behind Ikiko as the pig tried to get to her. "I don't know why! I didn't do anything! I haven't had this coat anywhere near anything like that!"

Unknown to her, when she grabbed the coat... it had been laying on a stack... OF CORN!
Ikiko Hisakata 2017-09-16 01:57:43 82903
A slight giggle emerges from Ikiko as Sumire panics and hides behind her. "Now, now, stop frightening her," Ikiko says to the pig (in Japanese) as she catches it in a hug. "I kinda doubt that her coat actually tastes any good."

She does give Seth a nod of hello, although her attention is focused on keeping the pig contained.
Seth Locke 2017-09-16 02:13:28 82904
"...Aaaaaaaaand, there it is. Mystery solved", he grins. "Ikiko-chan, how do you do?", he finally greets. He looks at Sumire, whom he doesn't know, and bows his head politely. "Greetings, I'm Seth Locke. And allow me to help with your predicament." He reaches for a corn cob, which he dangles in front of the piggy...
Sumire Tenshi 2017-09-16 02:20:06 82905
Sumire Tenshi nodded, eying the pig. Ugh, evil little thing. She couldn't stop blushing as she glowered at it. Right on the nose! Who DID that?! Huh? Oh, introductions? "I am S--' And froze. Wait, crap. Not real name, baaaaad idea. "You... can just... call me... Akane. My name is Akane," she lied. Really? Not the most original name.

The pig, meanwhile, started chewing down on the corn. "Hork hork hork hork..."

Sumire glowered at it. Truly an evil thing, pudgy and adorable or not.
Ikiko Hisakata 2017-09-16 02:23:40 82906
"Hi, Seth!" Ikiko smiles, keeping a hold on the pig, even though it's eating. She gives Sumire a small 'are you serious' look at the choice of alias, but doesn't say anything about it. If an idol singer wants to keep a low profile, then who is she to argue?
Seth Locke 2017-09-16 03:12:16 82908
So, the little piggy is eating, and Seth, the improvised handler, starts to move the corn cob slowly, so that it follows after with its head... "Put it down, now, Ikiko-chan. Let's see if it works..." And hopefully, once the piggy is down on the ground, he'll be able to lure it right back into the cage, as Seth pushes the cob inside, keeping the pen door open so that it can enter of its own fee will.

"Akane?", Seth repeats. "Aren't you missing a name there, are you not, Akane-San?"
Sumire Tenshi 2017-09-16 03:14:27 82909
Sumire Tenshi blinked a few times. Another name? A... "Err, I'd rather not just--"

And then a boom and a scream. She nearly fell back again, looking around in confusion. Then her eyes fell on it.

Across the field, one of the dog stands had exploded into fire. A pair of giant dogs(both corgis, except one made of fire and ice.) They let out howls as people ran and screamed, the two dogs going in separate directions, spreading fire and ice as they ran.

Sumire stared, her mouth falling open. "W-what? Oh no. Not more monsters..." she whispered. Crap, where was reiko?!
Ikiko Hisakata 2017-09-16 03:26:35 82910
Ikiko Hisakata places the pig down, remaining ready to chivvy it away until it's back inside its pen and the gate is closed and secured. One minor problem solved!...

...and quickly replaced with a bigger problem -- or more accurately, a pair of them. "Oversized elemental corgis?!" she says in a tone of angry disbelief.

At least there's a pair of active magical girls here, plus two more people who know enough to at least remain safe. "I got the ice one," Ikiko murmurs to Sayaka in passing as she heads off to duck behind a few booths.

A glow of silver later, Cute Wolf Tsukiko leaps across the festival, heading to intercept the ice corgi. "STOP THAT!" she snarls in caninespeak, putting herself in the chilly canine's path.
Seth Locke 2017-09-16 04:01:25 82911
Seth Locke turns his head towards the area where the explosion occurred, and he frowns, letting out a small growl from under his breath, eyes flashing an eerie red. He looks at his kid sister and gestures her out. "Go to the exit. Don't wait, and don't worry."

She nods, and then skiddaddles towards the exit.

He looks between the two girls, and then to the two creatures, evaluating them. He looks back to the wolf girl, then shrugging, "I always end up getting burned... So..."

His eyes steadily glow red, now, and black smoke and shadows cover his frame; when they fade, a figure standing over seven feet tall, angular-featured and long haired, covered in dark clothes of black and sepia stands in place, clawed hands pouring out dark energy. <<Time to put that fire out, lil' doggy.>>
Sumire Tenshi 2017-09-16 04:06:53 82913
The two dogs rushed off in different direction, destroying stands and knocking over cages as they went, just making a mess of everything and sending animals, and people, fleeing in fear.

Sumire stared. Wait, she didn't have any magic anymore. Well, she did but... Diamonds appeared around her, looking panicked, though some were looking for a fight and... instead she hid. What? No magic!

The ice dog stopped when Ikiko came at her and... "RUFF!" It sent a flurry of ice shards at her.

The fire dog sent a wave of fire at the group, tearing through more fences and making Sumire lift her arms up with a shriek.
Ikiko Hisakata 2017-09-16 04:12:18 82916
Cute Wolf Tsukiko leaps sideways, getting clear of the physical shards even as the cold wind of their passing chills her slightly. "Well, at least you're willing to stay still," she mutters, rolling back to her feet and circling around the ice corgi. Gotta keep it distracted, and maybe find out what's going on -- is this a corgi-shaped youma, or simply a corgi that got transformed by some sort of magic?

Hopefully there's some sort of indicator that can help her tell the difference...
Seth Locke 2017-09-16 04:42:34 82920
The fire comes at Sumire, but this one will find an energy barrier, created by the demon boy who stood in its path. He looks behind him through the corner of his eye. <<Maybe you should take this as the cue to get to safety, yes?>>, he suggests.

With his other hand, he generates a sword out of dark energy, jumping over the barrier to leap at the creature!
Sumire Tenshi 2017-09-16 04:52:22 82921
The dogs DID have collars on! That didn't seem to be magical in nature. Maybe dogs that had been long abandoned and now craved to force people to give them attention? The ice dog shot another blast of ice at the girl, wagging its tail and sending a blizzard of snow hurtling down around them.

The fire dog burst into flame and charged at Seth, sending out more flames and knocking cages about, lighting things on fire. Sumire acked and turned to run, but then stopped... she then let out a silent curse, before opening some of the nearby cages so animals could get away from the fighting.
Ikiko Hisakata 2017-09-16 04:59:58 82923
Unhappy ordinary dogs that wound up being magically boosted? That first part, at least, Tsukiko can probably deal with.

Leaping onto the back of the icy corgi and grabbing its collar with one hand, the wolfgirl leans against its head and strokes its ears with her other hand. "You're just lonely, aren't you?" she woofs gently to it. "What you need is a family to give you attention, and maybe some help in controlling this ice power."

Perhaps if the corgi becomes calm and happy, it'll shrink back down to normal size?
Seth Locke 2017-09-16 05:09:08 82926
The demon boy swings wildly at the fire dog, making it recoil and be knocked over against a few animal pens, and sliding across the ground to meet the wall. Standing ready, this time for an energy drain in case the creature strikes back, he looks at the other magiacl girl...

And can't believe his eyes.

He looks between the two dogs, and realizes he's doing it wrong.

So, he approaches the fire dog, and decides to try to pet him.

The fire dog isn't actually wounded, mortally or pretty much otherwise, go figure - it might take a whole lot more for a creature of that size, after all.

And the petting begins, plus an apology, <<I'm sorry, you naughty boy. You forced my hand there for a second. What do you say we start all over, on friendlier terms?>> Hell, even a hug is given.
Sumire Tenshi 2017-09-16 05:23:06 82929
The dogs growled as they were.... suddenly.... began to be petted, hugged and coddled. After a few minutes of affection they began to slowly shrink down, soon becoming the size of normal corgi's. Then, with a little pop.... they were normal corgis! Two little red gems fell to the ground and then shattered to dust!

The day was saved!

And the concert hall was completely trashed. Sumire was nowhere to be seen, and the staff was trying, and for the most part failing, to take care of all the mess and destruction. Oh dear. Still...

They stopped anyone from getting hurt! And had two little corgis licking their faces. 'Fiddles' and 'Husker'.
Ikiko Hisakata 2017-09-16 05:35:02 82930
Cute Wolf Tsukiko blinks a bit at the red gem, but keeps giving Fiddles some pettings. "I can't take you home with me, but I know some people who can help you find a home..." she murmurs.

A silver flash and a few minutes later, Ikiko was over by the agency booth that she had been helping at earlier. After a bit of plausible explanation (she had found Fiddles during the ruckus, the wear of the collar indicates "tame but abandoned", how affectionate Fiddles is), she convinced the agency to put Fiddles up for adoption. One more dog set up to find a home; success!
Seth Locke 2017-09-16 05:45:18 82933
Well, and maybe some extra company for his home is just what is necessary for his kid sister to feel happier.

Returning to normal, Seth started to take care of the paperwork. A few minutes later, Husker had found himself a home!

Amanda returning, she became positively thrilled at the new resident. And seeing her smile made the boy-turned-demon smile.
Sumire Tenshi 2017-09-16 06:03:46 82936
Sumire Tenshi sighed and sat in her office, a wet towel over her face. Ugh. It was all a mess. Every single piece of it. Her concert, canceled. What was she going to do? More magic stuff. So much magic stuff. Maybe... she should go see Reiko.

Then she heard it.
