deadly_garden: (Kurama - Profile)
[We have a very close close up of Kurama's eyes before he steps back. He's looking quite a bit better than he did after his battle, though his arm is still bandaged and he's got a few bandaids on his face. He crosses his arms and looks sternly at the camera.]

I'm going to get this out of the way. While I'm thankful for those of you who were concerned about my well being, you really did not need to worry. I fully intended to go to the medical wing after Hiei's fight. Touya, I believe you were there when I said it.

Now, to matters that actually do matter. As you have likely heard, Hiei lost his battle to Mukuro, and Yuusuke has lost to Yomi. Yuusuke is currently unconscious in the medical wing as we speak, and has been since his loss. This puts us in a very...[He shakes his head, knowing that Yuusuke would not be pleased with him saying this] undesirable position. In fact, it makes myself and Kuronue as the only two standing between them and rulership of the Makai. Unless you count Natsumi, Enki, and some unknown, no name demon that Yomi's next battle is with. I can only hope that the next two or so days prove fortunate.

[He shakes his head again, then glances off to the side for a moment. When he glances back at the camera, he has a highly devious look on his face.] My next battle is with Kuronue. This will be quite... [He pauses expectantly, as though for dramatics' sake] interesting. We even have a bet riding on it. Cheer for me to strike first blood, everyone. [He winks, and then the screen goes black]

Yesterday were the preliminaries of the tournament. Things went about as expected, except for Chuu throwing his match for falling in love with the last combatant. So much for his drive to have a rematch with Yuusuke, I suppose.

Kuro was as well remembered and recived as I thought. Kuro-mine, just how many dropped out of the tournement when they realized they were in your bracket?

So far Touya, myself, Kuronue, Yuusuke, Suzuki, Hokushin, Yomi, Mukuro, Yomi, Shishiwakamaru, Rinku, Hiei, Raizen's former sparring partners, Jin, and I beleive Trish have made it into the tournement proper. Oh, and Shigure, though I had thought Hiei had killed him.

Yomi arrived at the tournement with his... son... in tow, who also fought in the preliminaries. I do have to say, the boy is amazingly stubbron, certainly his father's son. I think he was close to willing to die to defeat Yomi, but he thankfully surrendered when he realized he couldn't do it, not yet. He has the potiental I think, however.

The fights start again soon, with Shishiwakamaru vs Hokushin, Jin vs... one of Raizen's old friends, I forget his name at the moment. Touya, you have a fight today as well, correct?

Kurama stood outside Caducus hospital waiting for Angie to walk out the doors.  He shoved his hands in his pockets, one hand nervously playing with one of the origami roses Kuronue had taken to leaving in random places for him to discover.  He sighed, knowing how important this conversation was going to be.

With Yuusuke's announcment that the tournement was finally going to start this weekend, he had to revise a few things.  Knowing the community's habit of posting video without warning, he realized that a few secrets he had been trying to keep since his first day on the community would likely be exposed.

He didn't want Angie to find the truth out that way.

So here he was, standing outside a hospital in the future -- Although it was a comfort to know that the Y2K glitch was a myth -- waiting for her to show so he could tell her he was a demon.  Yeah, this was going to be a fun night.

Until recently I did not believe I would ever be thankful to have found the community.  This is not to say I ever truly hated it either.  It was just a part of my life, if an occasionally irritating one.

It is true I have made a fair number of friends here and met some intriguing people.  Even found some who shared common interests with me.  However, it was still simply something I could visit in my spare time.

Yesterday changed that.  The community saw fit to return someone who I had long since thought forever lost to me.  Someone who I cared for and still care for deeply.

I believe I shall be one of the few who will ever say these words:

My eternal thanks, DramaDramaDuck.

deadly_garden: (Angry Yoko)
When he had been Yoko full time, Kurama had learned quickly that removing emotions from the equation in terms of heists and jobs was the only proper way to do things.  Put emotion into it and you got careless and made mistakes.  He'd forgotten that once, and it ended in his losing someone he cared deeply for.

He was no longer Yoko, not as often, but he'd learned his lesson hard that day and never forgot it.  He kept emotion out of all his plans, all his objectives... save this time.

This time he was furious.  He was furious and elated and out for blood.  No one chained up his bat and got away with it.  No one.  And he was going to show them exactly what happened when someone dared attempt it.

He turned to Kid, giving a mental message to his plants to protect the other thief as he did so, once they'd arrived in a thankfully deserted section of the castle.  "Keep a sharp eye.  These are demons, and they will not hesitate."

Barely waiting for an answer, he pulled a rose out of his long silver hair and wordlessly transformed it into his Rose Whip.  "I'm going for Kuronue."

[There's a light chuckle as the mike switches on.]

Only Yuusuke. [The sound of a squeaky chair as he sits. His voice sounds amused and somewhat fond.] Only Yuusuke would come up with something so... outlandish. An election in the Makai. Raizen is likely laughing his head off, if only for the look on Yomi's face. Fighting for the rule of the Makai...

[Locked, hackable]

[Tuts softly] Not a job I particurally want, but I'll fight to keep it from Yomi and Mukuro.


Yuusuke, I trust Hokishin survived the heart attack you gave him for "vandalizing" the national treasure?

[Locked to self/Expect hackers and Kaito and Yusuke if they want only]

[Voice is no longer as fond, sounding almost tired.] It's been hell, this past month. A few days after my arrival -- which was a fight for my life about as expected -- Yomi brought me to his holding cells.

[A deep sigh] He captured my assassin. Tortured him. Blinded him. Refused to kill him. Not until he confessed the identity of the one that hired him.

[A small touch of anger enters his voice.] He brought it on himself! They both did! Yomi for forgetting his place and the assassin for not doing his job properly! He should have died! No one challenges me like that and lives!

[An audiable inhale, as though he's trying to calm himself.] Lesson learned. Don't sleep with the underlings. They get full of themselves, start acting out and challening you for leadership and you have to kill them.

At least I was able to secure my position as Yomi's second until Yuusuke's plan went into effect.

Oh, and no one possesses my brother.


((OOC: FINALLY! Canon progression time. I think I'm caught up now, if I'm not please let me know. Also, I'm at work right now, so I won't be returning tags until at least seven eastern time. Might pop in for a few minutes to answer one or two; the place is freaking dead. -_- Oh, and strikes are mutters.))

This virus is officially highly inconvenient.  The two days I spent with Yuusuke were... tolerable, at least. However...

Yomi.  Of all people, it is Yomi I'm forced to... touch... today.  I would touch Sensui before Yomi, in all honesty.  I touched Yomi often enough when he still had his eyesight, and I have no intention of starting that again.

My apologies to the ones responsible for this, but I shall insist on spending the remainder of my time sick.

((yeah, that's not gonna last the night. >> Strikes hackable if you try, he didn't secure it enough since he's pissed as all hell.))

deadly_garden: (Not a Hero)

[Kurama managed to sneak away from Yomi and the events in the Makai much easier than he initaily thought he would be.  But then again, he reminded himself, Sorai, Rinpai, and Shunjun reacted very well to seduction, bribery, and blackmail.  He'd have to remember that, especially in the case fo Shunjun, who was actually the one responsible for his injuries that caused his hiding out in the Ningenkai.

He'd made a quick stop at a nearby convience store to pick up a few creature comforts for Kaito, remembering from his mother's multiple trips how bored she had been.  Bag in hand, he made his way to the hospital and up to Kaito's room and knocked on the door.]

deadly_garden: (Blood Flowers)

I should have gone this morning, but... matters forced a delay in my trip.  Yomi can bite me; I keep my own schedual.

So this evening I will be going to Genkai's Temple where the Spirit World Defense Force will open a portal to the Makai so that I may spend the month serving as an advisor to Yomi.

I... am unsure just how much contact I will have with the Ningenkai or the community.  Gandera is supposedly far more advanced than most of the Makai, but I do not believe it is advanced enough to connect with such a vastly different technological set up.  I will keep up as best I can, however.

I suppose I shall see you all soon.

[/End first lock]

[Locked, unhackable, to Kid]

I'll be sure to steal way some time to continue to tend to your injuries.  It's amazing what bribery, blackmail, and seduction can acomplish. And I think we should have a talk or two.

[/End second lock]

((And we FINALLY have more canon progression!  *is watching the appropriate episodes now, actually*  First strike is thoughts, second strike is difficult to hack, but not totally impossible.))

Oh, this is so highly amusing. Am I affected? Oh, seems I am. This just makes things even better.

It's a pity more aren't capable of controling their thoughts. Modern Birthstones by month: Garnet, Amethyst, Aquamarine, Diamond, Emerald, Pearl/Moonstone, Ruby, Peridot, Sapphire, Tourmaline/Opal, Topaz/Citrine, Turquoise/Blue Topaz. But then, where would the humor come from? The list of modern birthstones was compiled and standardized by Jewelers of America; Blue Topaz is not always considered a December birthstone.

Mystical Birthstones by month: Emerald, Bloodstone, Jade, Opal, Sapphire, Moonstone, Ruby, Diamond, Agate, Jasper, Pearl, Onyx. The list of mystical birthstones are of Tibetian origin dating back over a thousand years.

Hm. I seem to be rambling. I suppose I should end that.


I do hope everyone finds a way around this.

It seems Kaasan and Hatanaka-san have decided change the date of their wedding from a fall ceremony to an early spring one.  I'm not sure what exactly prompted this change, but I suspect it has to do with the sakura trees blooming.  Kaasan favors them, after all.

[Locked to self, difficult to hack (IE: Gods and friends with good computer skills)]

This simplifies things somewhat.  Just a few weeks ago I was contacted by Yomi, of all people, seeking my return to the Makai.  I'll have to negotiate with him, of course, as to how long I'll... visit, since there is only so often I can tell Kaasan I'm going with friends to China.  Perhaps I can give her a trip as a honeymoon gift...


I likely should start shopping for White Day gifts.  Two weeks until the holiday, after all.

...I should get Hiei something.  Just to see his reaction.

The clean up after Valentine's Day is always such a chore.  The girls at school gave me almost more boxes than I could carry home, and then when I woke up the next morning there was a mountain outside our door.  Kaasan nearly went head over heels when she opened the door.

Sometimes... sometimes I do wish I wasn't too polite to decline them.

[Locked to Kaito]

Kuroba-san, would you mind taking all some of these boxes off my hands?  Being a canine demon I can't exactly handle very much chocolate at a time before becoming ill.

Though it has been very interesting to watch a virus from the outside rather than be affected by it.

Is... is there any particular reason my herb garden is now the colors of the rainbow?

Kurama stepped out of Hakuba's car and looked around, fully aware that he'd just been hopped fifteen years into the future of Tokyo.  He took in as much as he could, eyes wide and searching.  It was partly old habits; searching for threats, avenues of escape, and places to hide.  But then he also was taking advantage of this chance, to learn about future events and the state of the world in 2009.

Then he looked around with a different purpose, searching for the magician he was due to deliver a few bars of Hershey's Chocolate to.
