Lacrima is having a Norie day. It means she's hanging around as Norie. She has days like this because she doesn't wanna forget what it feels like. That it's important to remember who she really is, between 'Lacrima' and 'Maria'. This does limit her ability to leave the house, but it's not like she can't switch either other identity on and leave. But...

Well that defeats the purpose of such a day. So what is she doing?

She's mainly sitting on the couch watching anime. This anime is about a ghost that is in love with a human, called 'Transparent'. She's eating donuts while watching it with wide eyes. Two boxes suggests she's been watching for a while. She might be binging an entire season!

Lamya descends from her room, yawning and stretching after a nap. She sees, well, Norie this time and moves over to her, leaning on the back of the couch. "Good evening, Norie," she says. "Might I join you and have a donut?"
Rashmi Terios 2019-06-30 00:37:37 105819
*nok nok nok*

On the other side of the front door, Rashmi waits for an answer, two dozen donuts from the stand by the park in a box in hand.

Yes it's not awesome family sweets, but, know your audience.

Norie Okana looks up at Lamya and smiles. "Go ahead. I'm watching Transparent. Season 3!" she says softly. "I don't think the guy sees her yet. But it's only episode three!" she says softly as she looks back to the TV When!--- knock knock knock.

She stands up and peers through the peephole and ahs. Rashmi must have come by. She opens the door and a hand waves out to quickly usher Rashmi in. She closes the door. Mainly.

She's afraid of people catching a glimpse of 'Norie Okana, Missing Persons'.

"Hi Rashmi-chan!" She says when she closes the door. "Welcome! Hey, I'm watching Transparent. And eating donuts. And Lamya just woke up from a nap, come on, join us." she says softly. "I have some stuff to talk about."
Dragon Lamya 2019-06-30 00:45:09 105821
Lamya waves with a spare hand, the other busy stuffing her face with a donut. "Good evening!" she calls out to Rashmi. "It is good to see you! Come join us." She looks at Norie when she mentions talking and ask, "Should I give you two privacy?"
Rashmi Terios 2019-06-30 01:01:50 105822
"Then it's a good thing I got extra donuts!" Rashmi chirps, setting the box on the table nearest the TV couch. "Also hi Lamya-chan! No you don't need to go anywhere, and how've you been?"

"So!" she says, turning to face both Lacrima and Lamya, "What's up?
Lacrima 2019-06-30 01:15:33 105823
Norie Okana smiles at Lamya. "Nope. If I needed secrecy I'd just go into the sunroom." she says softly. She looks back at Rashmi. "Basically." she says. "Remember how I warned you about Poderoso...?" she asks quietly.

"We don't worry anymore. Because he's um. Dead. Like. Re-dead. I guess." she says softly. "...Mamoru, Kokoro, Rei, Ariel, Miho, and Kunzite and Jia all helped me, since he kinda um. Invaded my dreamscape. And tried to take over my body. Anyways. Dead." she says quietly.

"So. You know. No more alarm there." she says with a smile. She peers at the donuts. "Are those from that truck near the park? The person that does the donuts with the heart shaped holes?"
Dragon Lamya 2019-06-30 01:26:12 105825
Lamya, stands grinning. "This is good news indeed, Norie-chan!" She takes another donut from the boxes that are already here and nods. "I need to get back to my studies, but it was good seeing you, Rashmi."
Rashmi Terios 2019-06-30 01:32:27 105826
"That's seriously good news!" Rashmi exclaims, stopping just short of lunging forward to wrap her arms around Lacrima. "Um.... So this is kind of a happy-hug moment... D'you mind? You can say no I'd understand, just, y'know."
Lacrima 2019-06-30 01:40:37 105828
Noire Okana frowns. "I mean it's a good thing. But not good." she says raising a hand. "Ariel....."

She sighs a bit. "Ariel... struck... Poderoso." she says quietly. "She took a giant thorn from roses that Mamoru made sprout to weaken him, and she.... slashed with it. Like a sword." she says.

"She was.. afraid. It was going to take me away." she says softly. "She's okay now, but she was a little shaken up..." regardless, she opens her arms up for hugs. "But still. Sure. Hugs." she says with a smile.
Rashmi Terios 2019-06-30 01:48:50 105830
When the hugs are accepted, they are indeed given. "I'm sorry to hear about Ariel," says the redhead, squeezing gently. "Let me know if there's anything I can do for either of you to help?"

Knowing Ariel like she does, imagining her treating *anything* like a sword is a worrying prospect. "Oh, and yeah. They're donuts from the guy at the park."
Lacrima 2019-06-30 02:01:20 105833
Lacrima shakes her head and she does lean into the hug and give it honestly back, but she does sighh a little. "I also... hoped for a little more. When he died. I'm still not having my own dreams, for example. So I think it's just stuff I'm stuck with." she says softly. She pinches the bridge of her nose.

She smiles and gently opens the box to eat one. "He makes the best donuts in the city that aren't the artisan ones I buy from that small shop." she says softly.

She looks down and then back up. "I feel... ungrateful. Feeling sad that nothing else happened. I mean. I am grateful. That the guy is gone. And out of my life... but..." she says. "Kinda hoped. That meant I could have my own dreams too. Ya know...?" she asks. "I mean. Sleep.. dreams." she says. "Not.. the metaphorical... dream. Ugh. Sorry. I'm getting confusing."
Rashmi Terios 2019-06-30 02:08:30 105834
"Hey, it's okay," Rashmi says, sitting down on one side of the couch and patting the cushion next to her. "I'm not going to get it all anyway, since... well, I'm not the one that's had to live with it, but um... even if you don't have a normal brain, one thing I read says that dreams are the brain's way of sorting stuff out while you sleep... Maybe part of it's that you've got memories from basically a jerkbutt great-uncle, not yours? So they're harder to sort out?"

Trailing off, the redhead shrugs. "I don't really have answers, just... y'know, ideas on perspectives, Lacchan. But I know that even if you have all the other junk... the most important thing is that you're you, and you don't have to worry about him making you into something else."
Lacrima 2019-06-30 02:35:48 105836
Norie snerks. She laughs a moment but shakes her head. "Sorry. Just something you said. Reminded me of something Ariel said once. Equating Poderoso to a 'father'." she snorts. "Maybe. Just... yeah." she says softly as she shrugs a little bit. "Maybe Mamoru or Ariel can help. Rei said she had a dream charm for me, but wants Ariel or someone else to install it because it's blessed and she doesn't want me hurting myself while handling it." she says softly.

"Yeah. I'm me and that's important. I know." she says. "-and I no longer have to worry about some vague vampire threat besides me." she says. "...Did I tell you met a vampire Pirate Ghost?.... and he turned out to be a pretty decent guys all things considered? It felt like Poderoso tricked him some time ago. Jiaying helped him move on when all was said and done." she says quietly.
Rashmi Terios 2019-06-30 02:50:16 105840
"Yeah I kind of like great-uncle better," Rashmi chuckles. "Because they're easier to ignore if they're a jerkbutt, and if you say it in English you can shorten it to 'grunkle.' Which sounds more fitting for him."

She tilts her head. "No I didn't hear about a vampire pirate... But it's nice to hear that you weren't the only nice vampire that Poderoso-san ever made!" she says, grinning. "And now you can work on you without having to worry about being, y'know..... interrupted."
Lacrima 2019-06-30 03:14:09 105842
Lacrima snorts and merely nods. "Well. He was still a pirate." she says softly. "So not the best person. I think he's someone who regretted after the fact or was lied to. But decent enough. Given that." she says softly as she shifts a little uncomfortably on the couch as she eats a donut.

"Poderoso didn't make me. I'm just the person his captured powered leaked into and he wanted that back." she says softly. "But I guess indirectly... sure."
Rashmi Terios 2019-06-30 03:20:53 105844
"Sorry," Rashmi says after a moment. "You're right, of course."

Picking up a donut, she shakes her head. "Even if he regretted it later... That means something. Nobody's ever stuck being terrible, Lacchan. If he wanted to be better, and he tried, then that matters just as much as what he did, y'know?"
Lacrima 2019-06-30 03:34:28 105846
Lacrima raises her head. "Yeah, I guess." she says quietly. "But I don't trust anyone who takes this kind of power willingly as a rule." she says quietly. She sighs a bit. "Whether they regret it or not." she says. She looks up.

"By the way. Did you tell your mother I wanted to talk about renting the Korma out in the near future?" she asks softly. "I'll come talk to her soon, if so." she says softly.
Rashmi Terios 2019-06-30 03:39:22 105847
"That's fair," Rashmi allows, bobbing her head. "You'd know more about the power part of it than I would, certainly." Nibbling on her donut for a moment, she brightens at the question. "I did, actually! She said she'd be more than happy to talk to you whenever you like."
