deadly_garden: (Kurama - Kurama and Shiori)
We celebrated my twentieth birthday yesterday. It was more important to Kaasan than it was to me, but I understand why, it is a big year after all.

It's hard to believe I'm twenty years old, I don't seem any different from when I arrived on this community three and a half years ago. Still, it was an enjoyable day and it made her happy, which is all I ask for.

...I do have to admit though, it wasn't without a little bit of sadness. I used to share this day with Kuroba Kaito, and would look forward to wishing him a happy birthday in return. With Ryudo-san gone now as well, a day that I once spent with friends is something of an empty one now.

Happy Birthday anyway, Kuroba-kun, even if you aren't here to see it now.

...I cannot believe my behavior last week.  I have always despised the methodology of the Phantom Thief, the lacking logic.  To find myself actually following and believing it... I even posted a heist note, by Inari.  And I called myself Kaitou Kitsune?  How ridiculous.

Kid, even after having lived your life for a few days I still cannot understand you.

...Also I still find myself in possession of the Earth's Opal.  Kid, could I bother you to return it for me?

This memory opens up with a door opening and a young boy, clearly Kurama’s human side at age six by the mop of red hair, is seen entering it.

I'm home! )

[He sounds strained, and possibly a little insane?]

Scratching, clawing, digging.  Scratching, clawing, digging.  Scratching, clawing, digging.

[He's growing more frantic as she speaks, faster and louder and much more desperate.]

There's something in there, something trying to get out.  I can't let it out, can't let it out.  Has to stay inside, unacknowledged.  Ignored, for the sake of everyone else.  Safer, for them and for me.

Blasted fog!

[The last is said in a hushed whisper]

The plants won't let us out of the den today, same as they wouldn't yesterday once I came home from checking on Kaasan.  I was barely able to return at all; traditional world hopping is obstructed.  I had to walk around until I found a weakness in the barrier.  Koenma doesn't seem to have any ideas what could be behind this.

I'm concerned.  What little fog that manages to leak through is this disgusting yellow shade, not the reddish tint I've grown accustomed to in the Makai.  The plants have informed me that Kaasan, Kuronue and I are not the only ones who have developed headaches.

...Theirs are worse than mine.

Kuwabara-kun, Touya, have you been experiencing the same?  And does anyone else have any idea what this could be?  I'm afraid I'm only getting bits and pieces of information at this point.

[The microphone clicks on and the clink of glass meeting wood sounds close by. Shortly after that is a sigh.]

I would say someone shoot me now, but the marksmanship club might actually take me up on that. And I think Kuronue might have a problem with that idea. So no sense in tempting fate.

[There's a small chuckle and a short silence.] I've been back at this school for nearly a year and a half and it seems so little has changed and yet I'm still learning everything all over again. Maybe Yuusuke was right; I shouldn't have bothered to return. He did tell me it was a lost cause.

But... someone has to remember that students have rights, and someone in a position of authority has to stand firm with them. And these kids need a sympathetic teacher. There's never enough of them, even with the Dylandys, Gavin-sensei, and a few others. I just have to hope I'm doing enough.

Baby steps, Minamino. Eventually things will turn out for the better.

[In the background there's a shout of "Oi, Kurama!" before he chuckles softly.] On my way, Kuro-ai.

[There's the sound of him setting down the glass and shuffling before the audio times out. Replies will be voice.]

[At first all you can hear is faint music, the song vaguely identifiable as being in Greek. A few moments later a male voice joins it, his pronunciation slightly off and halting. Soon enough it ends and the voice sighs.

Seemingly thinking that the recorder hadn't been on until now he starts to speak.]

There are days... when I sincerely hate what I've done with my life. Never my distant past; I'm quite content with that. It's what I've done recently that I loathe. Lying to her. Staying here.

Before Kuro was returned to me... I had no qualms staying here for the rest of her life. It was only proper, after all. She raised me, put up with me when I was an ungrateful child. I can't leave her. [soft laugh] I never could, really.

And then I found Kuro and the tournament happened and suddenly it felt like home again. It was a feeling I missed. [chuckles again] It was a feeling I liked. It was nice, being myself again with no questions asked.

[He's quiet for a long moment, only the white noise indicating that the recording was still active] I should go back, to be with Kuro as we used to be. To do as we used to do. But... I have school to finish, my mother and younger brother to take care of. [A deep sigh] I don't know what to do. But... I have time to decide. Time tends to be there always.

[And feed cuts out. All replies will be in voice unless otherwise noted.]
deadly_garden: (Kurama - ...And then it rained fish.)
Cuddy-sensei, I was wondering if you would permit me to come to your home?  I've offered to trim Fire Lord Azula's hair for her and she informed me that I should ask you first.
deadly_garden: (Sad Yoko)
Kurama sighed, watching Kuronue. This was the second time he'd had to deal with the bat not knowing him in the span of a month. The last one was a virus, but this...

Whoever that girl was, he was going to find her and kill her, but not until after he tortured her for her indiscretions.  No one lived to speak about doing harm to Kurama's if he had anything to say about it.  And he usually did.

He debated with himself for a brief moment before holding out his hand.  "I won't judge you.  I don't think I ever will, in fact.  If you're hurt, you can tell me. I won't breathe a word to another living being, I swear."  He took a deep breath, hoping his heartbreak wasn't bleeding through and showing on his features, though it came out through his voice.  Strained and with the tiniest bit of pain, he added, "Please, Kuro-ai.  Please let me help."

deadly_garden: (Kurama/Kuronue)
Kuro-ai, what do you say to watching the Kid heist tonight?  From the sound of it, it should be quite interesting.
deadly_garden: (Yoko - "'Yoko Has Returned;' They Cry.")
Yoko stood in front of the clearly deranged bat, paying no attention to the body scant inches from his foot. His arms were crossed and his eight tails waved and twitched in obvious annoyance.

This was not the Kuronue he had woken up next to that morning. No, this bat was unhinged, speaking nonsense -- Buried beneath the roses? Him? Honestly. -- and obviously had suffered a head injury of some sort. This was not something the fox wanted to deal with in the slightest, though it was obvious that it would have to be dealt with swiftly.

Illusion, delusion, hallucination?  Yoko was none of these things and would prove it.

His voice was cold, void of emotion that he couldn't spare at the moment.  "Kuronue, explain yourself.  Now."

OOC: Majority (As in, all but two or three lines of Kurama's after Kurama and Kuronue walk into Yuusuke's room) transcribed from the anime, episode 111, second half. Figured it'd be better to do it this way than shoehorn the bits of dialogue that I wanted in this at awkward places. Normal text is Kurama, italics is for Yuusuke, bold and italics is for Kuronue, and bold is for Koto and [Spoiler here, read the video post to find out who won the tourney]. Done with Lii and Z's permission.

[The microphone clicks on and almost immediately you can hear Kurama sigh.  When he speaks, his voice is muffled at first, as though his arm is in the way.]

Kuro lost.  And he's hurt.  Not as badly as he was a month ago, but... Angie-san, can you get another hop to come and examine him for me?  I've already treated most of it myself, but a second opinion would be... comforting.

[There's a shuffle of fabric as he pauses, then his voice sounds wooden.]

It's down to Enki now.  The sparring partner to a dead King of Makai.  He's the only one standing between Mukuro and the throne.  Tomorrow morning is the final round.  Yuusuke is still unconscious.

Things are not looking good for us.

[Audio ends]

((I'll stop spamming soon, I swear!  Canon progression's nearly over!))

[And another video from our fox.  He's bandaging up his arm yet again and his lip appears to be... chewed on?  And bleeding.  His clothing appears singed and burnt in a few places and is missing half the back of his tunic.  His pantslegs are torn and bloodstained, though the skin underneath is bandaged.  He suddenly looks up at the camera and scowls, his lip bleeding just a little more from the action.  He jerks his head to the side]

I assume you've all heard that Kuro beat me.  Yomi lost to his opponent and Mukuro defeated Natsumi.  Tomorrow Kuro has his battle with Enki and then whoever wins that will go onto the finals.

I pray that Mukuro will lose to one of them, whoever it is.
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?

Cut for video )

((YYH cast: Please inform me if this isn't alright with ya'll and I'll happly make changes. Setine, is it fine for me to figure Trish made it past prelims?))

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.
