Pose Count: 33
Unmei Tama 2018-09-15 17:18:24 97752
Unmei Tama was glaring frustratingly at her gem. It kept... Blinking at her. And swapping colors a lot. Worse, Pin and Win weren't around for some reason. She tried to find them, but they ignored her calls. Stupids!

Since her gem was acting so odd, she decided to use the pen tonight. And had set up a bunch of popcorn, chips, salsa, smores, and a whole bunch of really silly romance, vampire and magical girl movies. Why?!

Because she was having an impromptu movie night! And so she had even cute pajamas set up and blankets and pillows in the front room and moved the couch and listen she'd never really had a slumber party before this. And while it wasn't REALLY a slumber party she was really excited and totally running around to get everything perfect and eeeee!
Miho Kagami 2018-09-15 17:22:56 97753
There's a knock ... on the window! Miho is there in henshin. "Hey, Unmei-chan," she says. "... Am I early? I wasn't quite paying attention to the timing, I guess." She smiles uncertainly; the last time she visited here, Unmei practically chased her out. "... You doing all right?"
Lacrima 2018-09-15 17:34:22 97754
< Mistress, You will be late. > says the lavender bracelet on Lacrima's wrist. "I know Paige, thank you I'm leaving in juuuust a moment." she says as she stuffs the last bag of store bought popcorn into a backpack from the cupboard in the kitchen. It already contains boxes of donuts. She then turns around after closing her cupboard in the manner and---

She dusk steps in front of the door of Unmei's apartment and gives a little series of raps. Knock knock. She'll wait to be let in, then nods a little. "Hello, Unmei-chan!" she says. "I brought um. Snacks." she says meekly as she looks down at her backpack then back up.

"I think I'm on time. I was a little frazzled after a thing last night." she says meekly.
Icela 2018-09-15 17:35:24 97755
Behind Lacrima there's a burst of energy as a body materializes. The pale figure is still not pretending to be human, there's other moments for that. She looks at Lacrima and the others and tilts her head. "Is right now a bad time?" She asks softly, sounding uncertain.
Unmei Tama 2018-09-15 17:40:31 97756
Unmei Tama heard the window first and so ran to it, gesturing joy in. "Here, here. You may wanna de-henshion though. Lacrima will be here soon ans I'm not sure you want her to know your--" then the knock. "That's her! Be right back!"

She was a little flustered and excited and accidentally ran into the dresser a bit BUT SHE WAS OKAY! The important thing eas she opened the door and... "Lacrima! Come in, come in!" She said, motioning inside and... "Snacks? You didn't need to..."

Then blinked as icela... Appeared. "Errr... Actually. I guess it was good! We're about to have a movie night. Come on in!" Well, she couldn't just tell the poor thing to beat it... A fourth wouldn't be so bad. Right? Tonight wss about bonding!
Miho Kagami 2018-09-15 17:45:09 97757
Miho smiles, following after Unmei. She can certainly sense Lacrima's familiar dark presence outside the door. "Don't worry, she knows," she says. "She watched me transform for the first time, and even saved my life so I could ..."

Her voice trails off when she senses and then sees another creature of darkness, but ... well, if she's friends with Unmei, it's probably fine. "Hey, Lacchan!" she says in her clear bright voice. "Snacks sound great as far as I'm concerned!" She looks over to Icela. "Who's this?"
Lacrima 2018-09-15 17:49:59 97758
Lacrima blinks as she suddenly feels something dark behind her and she squints. "Wait you're that...girl from... the dream tree... with the book..." she mutters. She purses her lips, slightly frowning, but keeping her expression straight.

She turns back to Unmei. "I know I didn't need to, but I wanted to." she says softly as she sighs and places the backpack down. She motions to her bracelet. "This is my new friend, Paige." < Delighted. > says Paige in his dry British sounding voice.

"He's an Intelligent Device. He's going to be around with me now." she says with a series of nods.
Icela 2018-09-15 17:52:21 97759
"Oh, right. You're one of those hooligans, that's why you seemed familiar." Despite the phrasing, Icela doesn't sound upset, just tilting her head a little to look around and see what's going on. "What kind of movie are we watching?" Then she hears Joy ask a very reasonable question. "I'm the Ephemeral Eidolon, Icela. You may call me Icela." She smiles.
Unmei Tama 2018-09-15 17:57:50 97761
Unmei Tama nodded and then... "Oh. Right. This is Lacrima, and Joy. Everyone. This is Icela. She's..." Blink. "A friend." She wasn't really sure WHAT she was. A ghost? Phantom?

Then lacrima's devicr talked. "Wow! You got a device? That's so cool! And hia voice is so sexy! You're so lucky! If pin and win sounded like that i probably wouldn't kwep threatening to chuck them!" She urked. Wait. She hadn't told icela who she was... For good reason... "So let's go! Our first movie i chose for lacrina! 'The tomb of count Boulevard.' I hear it's reallllly cheesy!" Then she ran off.

Soon it was starting. And it was baaaaad. Gratuitous violence, cheesy special effects. At one point you saw the count transform... By ducking down and a bat on a string flying out. And, of course, occasional nudity. Because no B movie was complete without butts.
Miho Kagami 2018-09-15 18:03:58 97762
Miho looks curiously between Lacrima and Icela at Lacrima's uncertainty, but she just smiles as Paige introduces himself. "Has Paige-san been helping you out so far? I, uh, this morning, Sailor Mars ... posted about last night's incident." She's dancing around the issue of Virtue's communications ... "Is Ariel-chan all right? It sounded kind of worrying."

She nods and bows to Icela. "Nice to meet you!" she says playfully. "I'm the guardian of light and hope, Life Mahou Joy. And you can call me Joy."

She eyes Unmei. "Count Boulevard?" She actually laughs out loud at that. But soon enough she's sitting around on the couch in full henshin, giggling at how bad everything is.
Lacrima 2018-09-15 18:09:38 97764
Lacrima sits down and puts out the popcorn and donut boxes and gently grins. "Yes! Riven-sama made him for me." she doesn't go into the reasons why while Icela is here. Not the specifics at least. "I can do things like scans and some light tests and lighter labwork now without being in a lab." she says with a grin. "Gonna make studying some creatures easier." she says.

She smiles at Miho and gives a little short wave. "Joy-chan~" she says. "Yes, he has. I was in a fight yeah. Ari-chan was there too...." she wiggles over and whispers. "I think the new transformation made her nearly swoon." she grins as she leans back and wiggles back to her main spot on the couch as she glances at the movie.

"...No more sillier than Count Poderoso was a name." she snorts. "Or Lacrima." she mutters.

"....I'm pretty sure the bat transformation doesn't look like that in actual practice thou..." she snorts.

She looks towards Icela. "Lots of things from dreams and nightmares able to pass over often nowadays." she says softly. "Disconcerting. But I hope you enjoy really bad vampire movies." she says.
Icela 2018-09-15 18:13:50 97765
Icela gets out her sketchpad while watching the movie, along with a pencil. When she's done sketching, she's got count boulevard done as a massive figure behind his castle. She doesn't say much, though she smiled at Joy's introduction and pauses a bit at Lacrima's comments. "I got bored being stuck there, so I decided not to be stuck there anymore." She explains... kind of.
Unmei Tama 2018-09-15 18:16:01 97766
Unmei Tama glanced to Lacrima, looking concerned. "Sailor... Mars? Did something happen?" She asked softly.

Had she not... Had she missed everything, again? She then sighed and hugged her knees to her chest. Then glances to icela. "You'll find out about kt sooner or later. So... Ummm.... I'm magical girl clotho. The girl with the spear who fought your dino tge other day... So errr.... Yeah..." She mumbled, coughing.

"So what happened with mars and everything? Another monster? Did they call you for help?" She asked. Of course it was the first time she heard about it. After all, she was too busy poutinf around her apartment about not being needed to actually go out and help people. Teenage anggggst!

She giggled softly as she watched. "Hey lacrima, can you turn into a bat?"
Miho Kagami 2018-09-15 18:21:24 97767
Joy grins. "I admit I don't know her very well, but is it actually that hard to make her soon in general?" she murmurs teasingly. She nods to the screen, and gently pats Lacrima's shoulder with a gloved hand. "Okay, I suppose I shouldn't make snide comments about names, then, it's just ..." She gestures. "You gotta admit this movie is pretty fabulous about inviting snark, y'know? But I'll try to be more tactful about names and things."

She glances over at Icela's shoulder at the sketchbook. "Oh, you're good at this!" she says. "That looks pretty nice!" Unmei's exchange causes her to frown, though, but she doesn't comment.

She just shrugs at the question about the incident, and looks to Lacrima, since Joy herself wasn't actually there.
Lacrima 2018-09-15 18:39:40 97768
Lacrima ahs. "Some sort of Nightmare was trying to fuss with documents. We had to drive it off. I'm a little worried about it now. It seemed conflicted near the end." she says softly. She shifts and just shrugs. "Paige is still repairing the damage to himself. He's almost done thou." she says. She looks down at the bracelet then back up.

"I just happened to be in the area after feeding." she says quietly. "When I felt the Nightmare." she says. She shrugs. She smirks a little light to Joy. She doesn't say anything about the swooning and how easy it is or isn't to do that with regards to Ariel.

She looks back to Unmei. "I can turn into a bat, yes. There's very few 'vampire tropes' that are fact, but that's one of the few that is fact.

She looks over to Icela's book and purses her lips, as she looks back to the movie. "Better than they did at least." she says pointing to the TV. She scoffs.
Icela 2018-09-15 18:45:24 97769
"Want me to see if I can find and talk to that nightmare?" Icela asks Lacrima straight up, trying to be friendly. "I tend to get along with nightmares pretty well." Then she pauses when Unmei informs her she is clotho, and takes a moment to compose herself. "Not my dino. Just something that answered my call, don't feel bad about killing it. Try not to get in my way again, though?" She smiles at the compliments on her drawing, "Thanks. I'm thinking I want to be a mangaka when I grow up. So I got to keep practicing."
Unmei Tama 2018-09-15 18:58:40 97770
Unmei Tama nodded. "Yeah... Just the manors, thr bat.... And the sparkles," she jokes before reaching out to dust some sparkles off lacrima if she didn't object. "I bet your transformation is way cooler. And yeah. It's definitely inviting snark. I'm pretty sure we could do a better movie than this in a few hours," she said with a laugh.

She flushed and lowered her eyes. "It's... Kind of my job to stop things like that, icels. I mean... I may not be very good at it, but i have to still try... Sorry...." She poked her fingers together timidly. She didn't have a lot of friends and she didn't wanna lose a new one.
Miho Kagami 2018-09-15 19:09:39 97771
Joy nods. "Documents, huh?" She considers this, then shrugs. "Well, if she was conflicted," she says, "I'm sure that with your experiences, you'll be able to help her find some kind of happy ending." She pauses, then says, "Oh right, speaking of Paige-san, Stahlritter-kun offered to help train me. I texted him about ..." Her eyes shift towards Unmei and Icela. "... various stuff, we can talk about it later."

She listens to Icela and Unmei talk about ... some incident, where they apparently fought each other. She's starting to put the pieces together, and between that and Icela's earlier brief exchange with Lacrima where Icela called her a 'hooligan', she's slowly starting to think, '... hm.'
Lacrima 2018-09-15 19:18:27 97772
"My apologies Icela, but I do not believe that things like me, or you, can give her the help she needs." she says quietly. "I can get her into contact with people. I can talk to her. But... things like. Me. You... we stink at doing the right thing sometimes." she says.

She sighs to Unmei and smirks. "It's just like the puddle thing except I come back up as a tiny bat." she says.

"I only do that when I need to hide in realspace." a pause. "As opposed to the Dusk Zone, thou." she says quietly.

"Church Bell tower is real cozy for that." she says.

She nods at Joy. "I need to introduce Stahlritter-niisan to Paige. I'm sure Kriegfauste and Paige will get along just fine." she says with a wry little smile.
Icela 2018-09-15 19:22:59 97773
"Probably not, but maybe I could figure out what help she needs and let my friend Unmei here know so she can pass it on to you." Icela agrees and suggests, she smiles and makes sure to emphasize calling Unmei a friend. "But Unmei, you have to remember. I am but a curse the world invited upon itself, I can't stop doing what I do either." Her tone is quite jovial and friendly, "So nothing personal, right? Just two people doing their jobs." She glances towards Joy to see how Joy responds.
Unmei Tama 2018-09-15 19:27:17 97774
Unmei Tama cocked her head to the side. "Stah... Ri....ker... Err... Stahl.... Stalling.... Stah..." Okay, so she was bad with complex names! "Who's that? If you needed someone to train with, Kyouko and Mako don't usually mind people coming with them and... I.... Think i offered once..." She looked away sheepishly. She still owed miho a pen, but kun hadn't made any progress as far as she knew.

And a distraction! "Can i see your tiny bat form? Is it cute? It sounds adorable! That sounds so cool to be able to change your form like that! I wish my powers worked like that!"

She glanced to icela and looked a little relieved. Good. Still 'friends'. "Okay. But I'll always try to stop you from dokng the erong thing. At least id you're gonna try to hurt people but..." She trailed off. "You shouldn't scare people like that... You could have really hurt them... If we hadn't interfered. You weren't going to leave them... Were you?"
Miho Kagami 2018-09-15 19:31:32 97775
Joy considers what Lacrima is saying. "... Okay, now I'm imagining you do the batty thing like that, and my mental image is just adorable. Has Ariel-chan seen you go batty before?" She smiles. "But yeah, Stahlritter-kun meeting Paige-san seems like an excellent idea."

She just ... eyes Icela, but she doesn't really think she can add anything that Unmei didn't say already. "I'll keep your offer in mind, but I think Stahlritter-kun wants something more focused," she says. "He's a Belkan Device-user, he's, uh ..." She glances over at Lacrima, letting her mention the 'familial' relationship if she wants.

She does grin, though. "Yeah, wouldn't it be great to be a full shapeshifter," she says, patting Unmei's shoulder in trans solidarity.
Lacrima 2018-09-15 19:36:43 97776
Lacrima crosses her arms. "I used to think that way too, Icela. We're not curses upon this world." she says quietly. "I told the nightmare this." she says. "But we, as dark creatures have a responsibility to do as little damage as possible in our own lives. Not hurt people needlessly. Not darken hearts permanently." she says quietly. "That is my opinion on the matter. I'd rather not ruin this little get together with an argument about moralities. Your opinion is clear on the matter." she says curtly.

She looks to Unmei and sighs and closes her eyes a moment and she turns into a puddle of goo on the ground, before she comes back up as a bat. She looks bemused as --- much as a bat can. She's purple, like her hair. Regardless, she turns back back into go on the ground and turns back into her more humanish form she was in before. "There." she says.

"That always feels odd." she says quietly. "Stahlritter-niisan is an adopted brother. He's a Belkan Knight, yes." she says quietly. She shakes her head. "I can't change into anything I want. Just the bat. And this form and... the shadowy thing and 'Norie'. Maria is something Riven-sama had made up for me so I could just attend school again....."
Icela 2018-09-15 19:42:21 97777
There is a distinct lack of response to the question of what Icela would've done if Unmei hadn't intervened. Instead she immediately gets to drawing something new when Lacrima changes into bat form, and this time it's a flock of Lacribats. All recognizable as the very bat in front of them, despite being only a quick rough sketch. Though she tears the paper apart when the word 'brother' is used with clear fury in her face.
Unmei Tama 2018-09-15 19:46:45 97778
Unmei Tama nodded and... Pretended she knew who all these people were. Ariel she... Kinda knew a bit? And stahrl.... was important? She just smiled and nodded. "I know, right? I'd givr anything to be able to change my form as i wanted! Though just a bat might suck...."

She then blinked... Andd squeaked a bit. BARELY resisting grabbing and hugging small adorable bat. "So cute..." She whispered.

Then her eyes widened. "Wow! Your brother? Wait... I... Thought i heard.... How many brothers do you havw?" She swore she heard there were issues with het brother but... Miho seemed to like her.

"I'm gonna go get the smores!" And ran off.
Miho Kagami 2018-09-15 19:54:49 97779
Joy continues not to comment, because Lacrima has it well in hand, too. She smiles at the bat and says, "Okay, that is pretty cute," she says, firmly putting a warning hand on Unmei's shoulder. "Oh, uh, different brother," she adds.

She frowns as Icela suddenly tears up the page. "... Everything all right?" she says softly, and very obviously becomes a lot more tense. She doesn't want to just ... escalate right now, especially with Unmei out of the room ...
Lacrima 2018-09-15 20:02:52 97780
"Yes. Different brother." she says curtly. "Not the jerk one going around trying to kill everyone and everything it runs across." she says with a grimace. She watches the movie as Unmei squees over her. She sighs a bit and looks over to Icela.

"Mmmmph..." she mutters to herself. "Something just made you tick right then." she says quietly. "What was it?" she asks.
Icela 2018-09-15 20:07:54 97781
"Don't ask." Icela answers Joy and Lacrima with a severe frown, "I don't need your pity." And with that she goes quiet, drawing up something else. Something very meticulous that she keeps close to herself, trying to hide her work from the others. She still looks a bit upset, though.
Unmei Tama 2018-09-15 20:12:47 97782
Unmei Tama came back and then.... Sighed. She could already see how this was going to go. She put doen the plate with chocolate, crackers and marshmellows.

"Don't worry about it. Trust me. It's personal." Yes, she knew why. Of course she knew why. It wss literally the reason her and icela were even... Well.... Friends.

She nudged the plate towards icela. "Yeah. I heard a bit about that other brother. Haven't seen him my self, thank goodness." She then paused. "I'd probably be dead, though. Heh. Has anyone come up with a solution yet?"
Miho Kagami 2018-09-15 20:20:27 97784
Joy isn't used to dealing with the 'I don't need your pity' attitude, especially with what else she's gleaned about Icela. She considers this a moment, then decides to try speaking in a language someone who's like that would understand. "I don't know you well enough to pity you," she says, perfectly calmly. "I just wanted to make sure you aren't a threat."

She nods to Unmei. "Okay, got it," she says. "I haven't heard of any solutions to the problem that don't involve killing him. There was one ... wrinkle, sort of, but ..." She glances at Lacrima. "... it suddenly became a lot less of a problem earlier this week." She's clearly referring to the fact that gave Lamya her princess's phone number.
Lacrima 2018-09-15 20:22:59 97785
"No." she says. "But it turns out we found the princess first before he did so that's a good thing." she says softly. She sighs a bit and fidgets. "Now Lamya-chan and her need to meet and then we need to protect her from that creep." she says.

She looks to Icela she sighs a little softly and just shakes her head. She looks back to the group. She'll slouch in the couch and just shove a large handful of popcorn into her mouth.
Icela 2018-09-15 20:33:45 97786
"I'm not going to do anything to anyone when I'm visiting a friend. That'd be rude." Icela answers Joy with an immense coldness, "Do you really think I'd have that little manners?" She pauses a moment and shakes her head, then more warmly. "And I won't hurt anyone anyway. I wouldn't even know how." This in the category of lies by omission, and not even subtle about it. She gives Unmei a friendly smile when Unmei emphasizes it's personal.
Unmei Tama 2018-09-15 20:36:37 97787
Unmei Tama just looked more and more confused. "Princess? I think I'm really out of the loop here. Is... She nice?" She asked softly. "If you need ant help, lacrima, my offer still stands..." She then hugged her knees and turned back to the television. Giggling as the camera actually got DROPPED a little during a scene. Eesh.

She nodded, relieved that meant icela wouldn't actually try to kill someone. Yes, scaring people like that was bad but... Well.... She'd done a LOT worse when she was a bad guy. She completely missed the lie of omission.
