It's a quiet night at the Mizuno house. Ami is reading for pleasure for once, classical music playing softly on one of the television stations. The book in the bluenette's hands is something Russian--Anna Karenina. There are fresh tears on her face and the occasional sniffle escapes her, but she seems okay--it seems cleansing somehow.

    Sailor Venus just appears in the window and slides it open. There's a white catty cat following her. Artemis. She hops in and then slaps the window closed and then she tosses off the transformation to just Minako, fixing her hair a little. "Whew, windy out tonight!"

    She sliddddes up over the couch and peeks at the book. "Is that a sad story, Ami-chan or did something bad happen?" she asks quizzically. "Is that the long story that takes place mostly on trains?" she asks.

    Artemis rolls his eyes. "Sorry, Mizuno-san. Minako had questions. I don't think these are actually any of them." he offers.

Jumping, Ami turns--prepared for youma. But it's Sailor Venus! She relaxes when Minako un-henshins. "Hi, Minako. Yes, it's a sad story. No, nothing happened. And yes, trains are important to the story," she answers patiently, with a sweet, small smile to Artemis. She even offers the white kitty some scritches. "What brings you by tonight? Is everything ok?"
Minako Aino 2018-07-26 18:22:05 93007
    Artemis blissfully gets scritches, this sates him for a while, giving Minako free reign to be... Minako? For a bit. Yes.

    "Well. I'm not sure. See. I met this vampire that's friends with Kunzite trying to get my attention with a giant paper mache ball claiming it was a horrible dark machination. It worked, but mostly because of how stupid and silly it looked." she says.

    "I mean I give her props for not actually hurting anyone to get my attention but that's besides the point."

    "She asked about... reincarnation..." she squints. "Because she thinks her brother is a reincarnation of some mythical knight that history says is a good guy but actually isn't a good guy. It checks out. I tracked her brother looking into her in the past!" Minako says this, like this is a perfectly normal thing to do, but this part of Venus detective work! "He is kind of the smug confident jerk type. You know. The kind that adjusts their collar and walks up to you..." she does this and leans toward's Ami and says in a mock deep voice. "Why hello angel, did it hurt when you fell from heaven?" she asks as she raises a brow.

    She leans back. "Anyways." she says. "Is there some like, sciency way to detect that? Reincarnation?" she asks.
Ami Mizuno 2018-07-26 18:28:32 93008
As Minako Minakos, Ami listens patiently. She even giggles a little when Minako does the impression. But then the question is put to her, and she considers very seriously.

"Do you mean Lacrima?" she asks, by way of a starter, before continuing. "I don't know if there's a scientific way of tracking reincarnation, but we can definitely try. I mean, if we can't find something, we can't find something. But if we can find something, then maybe we can help people." Her eyes have that slightly distant look they get sometimes--she's thinking, and not just about schoolwork. Mirai Terra has been quiet for too long... and for that matter, so has Sailor Earth.

    "Oh, you know her too? Wait. That makes sense. Because...." she works for Riventon. She freezes and chooses not to bring up Takashi and get off track. "It isn't important." she says quickly.

    "Yeah. She specfically asked me to track him and watch him. See what he's doing." she says. "I'm helping because I think it might make Kunzite happy if I help her, and it isn't really asking too much I think at the moment and I don't think I'm helping some horrible plot for her to eat Tokyo or something by helping." she says.

    "She asked me my experiences about being a reincarnation of someone thou, too." she says. "So I told her. She said that some of that is matching what her brother is going though."

    "So how goes things, Ami-chan?~" she asks. "Besides reading and listening to pretty music?" she asks.
Ami Mizuno 2018-07-26 18:52:50 93010
Ami Mizuno mods and listens, smiling softly. Then something clicks. "...Wait, did you... look into Lacrima's past without her permission?" She stares at Minako-chan for a moment, before shaking her head. "Otherwise, things go pretty well." She won't bring up Riventon either, because it seems unwise. "School is wonderful, as always, and I really enjoy this piece by Bach." She smiles.
Minako Aino 2018-07-26 19:03:46 93011
    Minako raises her brow. "Yes. She's a potential threat. You need to know some things." she says. "She may be 'friendly' but she's also a mass of Dark Energy that is prone to massive mood swings and flights of dark whimsy that works for dark masters." she says frankly and seriously.

    She leans back. "Any information on the Sailor Earth front?" she asks. "I think the guys are too busy, I haven't been able to catch any of them." she shrugs a little.

    Artemis flops onto his side. He's a lazy kitty! Minako pets his side. "So. Speak to Takashi Agera lately?~" she asks.
Ami Mizuno 2018-07-26 19:15:28 93012
Ami Mizuno nods slowly. "That's a good thought," she says. "I hadn't thought of it that way." And she grins a little. "I forget that you're a tactical genius under the flights of fantasy, Minako. You're very good." And she smiles warmly at the other Senshi.

"I haven't heard anything," she murmurs after a moment, curling up. "Have you? I wish I had something, anything! But I don't." She blows hair out of her face before freezing, her eyes wide. "No. I haven't. We had a date or so a month? maybe two? back, but it wasn't anything at all important." And her lips thin. "Honestly, Minako, if he's gone and done it this time, I'm absolutely never seeing him again. I'm crazy for the guy, but he can't keep meddling like this." Because Ami can't use strong words for feelings often, 'meddling' is the best we get.
Minako Aino 2018-07-26 19:26:24 93013
    Minako eyes glimmer almost. "Ohhhhh a date!." she says. "Not important, huh? I sense a liiiieeeee." she says teasingly.

    BUT, then she blinks. "Did what?" she asks. "I mean I suspect he's involved someway in the Earth garbage. I just don't know if it's directly or indirectly. That's what me inteorgating the vampire was about. She didn't know anything." she says just a bit sourly.

    "I mean part of me hopes he'd learned from that Makoto garbage that happens a bit ago that he wouldn't try that again." she says.

    "Right, the vampire seems upset about the Earth thing, too. So if she does find out Takashi is involved I think she'd say something about it, or at least try to pass on something." she offers.
Ami Mizuno 2018-07-26 19:30:36 93014
Ami Mizuno blushes. "I think he is on the Earth thing, though," she says, ignoring the teasing about the date. Because she has to, otherwise she'll be upset. "Although I really, really hope I'm wrong, Minako." There her voice quavers, just a little--betraying her true feelings. Despite it all, she likes Takashi, flaws and all. She's gone above and beyond, after all, hasn't she? She's tried so hard.

And yet.

Nothing's changed, and it's dawning on her that maybe nothing will change. She reaches for her hanky again, and dabs at her pretty blue eyes.
Minako Aino 2018-07-26 19:50:36 93015
    Minako leans over. "Are you okay?" she asks. She leans back upright. "Well the evidence is strongly pointing to him. Just it's all circumstancal. Nothing solid. Not enough to go punch him directly and cause more issues." she says, another sour expression.

    She gently looks around for more tissues for Ami-chan. She eyes Artemis. "Don't you even think about it." says Artemis.
Ami Mizuno 2018-07-26 19:52:57 93016
Ami Mizuno sniffles and cries quietly. "I'm okay," she says. It's a blatant lie, but she's trying to be okay, and that's what matters, right? She sighs. "I know. I know in my heart that it's him. And it's tearing me up inside," she murmurs, before crying harder. Thankfully, once her hanky is all wet, there are tissues to hand beside her.
Minako Aino 2018-07-26 20:07:42 93017
    Minako Aino slips over the couch and pushes Artemis out of the way. She gently handles the tissues to Ami and says. "It'll be okay. I'm sure Takashi will see reason someday. I know Kunzite did, right? And all of Mamoru's boys and they were in deep with some darker things!" she says.

    Minako is rarely optimisitic about such things, but that is the one factual experience she can talk about that ended well enough, right?
Ami Mizuno 2018-07-26 20:11:45 93018
Ami Mizuno smiles up at Minako, watery but hopeful. "You think so?" she says, warily. "I want to.... I want to have hope." And she smiles wider. "I know it'll happen. It has to!"
