Chapter 97
 


Even with the gratuitous use of bones to help him drag his luggage up to the Tops, Kiryu distantly found himself thanking everything for the existence of elevators. In that state of mind, it was simple to do nothing else but mechanically unpack everything in his room and collapse onto the bed in dreamless sleep.

coming home )

He’d expected some kind of chaos when he came driving up to the garage, but not quite like…

“WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT, YOUR STASH?! THIS IS MY GARAGE!”

That.

“WELL, A SECRET STASH CAN HARDLY BE KEPT IN MY OWN HOME, CAN IT?! EVERYONE WOULD LOOK FOR IT THERE!”

“BUT WHY WHERE I’M LIVING?! ZORA ALREADY GIVES ME A HARD TIME ABOUT YOUR ATTITUDE, IMAGINE THE EARFUL I’D GET ABOUT HER FINDING OUT YOU STORE STUFF HERE WITHOUT HER PERMISSION!”

“WELL, I THOUGHT I COULD TRUST A FRIEND TO SAFEGUARD SOMETHING SO IMPORTANT. BUT CLEARLY YOU’RE NOT THAT GOOD OF A FRIEND NOW, ARE YOU?!”

“THAT FUCKING CLOWN FROM SECURITY ALREADY BROKE IN HERE AND STOLE CUP RAMEN BEFORE AND YOU THINK THAT’S A GOOD IDEA?!”

WHAT?! I WASN’T INFORMED OF THAT PARTICULAR DETAIL! I RESCIND MY PREVIOUS OPINION OF YOU, YOU ARE COMPLETELY INCOMPETENT AND-“

“YEAH, YEAH YEAH, JUST GET YOUR STUPID RAMEN OUT OF HERE!”

“FINE! BUT IF I FIND OUT THAT BRUNO WAS THE ONE WHO ATE IT WHILE WE WERE GONE-“

“I-I didn’t touch any cup ramen! H-honest!”

Poor Bruno. They didn’t even notice Kiryu rolling up to the garage, clattering bones and all. All the better, he supposed. Maybe he could get done with things in pea-

“Aah, so you weren’t eaten after all! Great, great!”

…What.

“Hah? Who’s getting eaten?” Crow raised an eyebrow, apparently not sure whether to be confused at the sudden interruption or wondering when Rua had gotten into the garage.

“THE ONLY THING THAT WE SHOULD WORRY ABOUT GETTING EATEN IS MY PRECIOUS-“

“NOBODY CARES ABOUT YOUR STUPID CUP RAMEN, JACK!”

Right, then. Kiryu ignored them in favor of heading inside, although he did raise an eyebrow at Rua insisting that they should all listen to him, that something big was going on inside the garage. His suspicions were only confirmed at finding Nico and West staying close to Ruka, who looked unsure about the whole mess going on.

“D-Don’t worry. I’m pretty sure it can’t be as big a deal as Rua says…”

“Eh? But Ruka, didn’t you say that it did feel like an Earthbound? So what if it really is…”

Immediately, Kiryu stepped into the garage, garnering the kids’ immediate attention. He ignored their surprised cries at his presence, however, instead focusing on whatever clues he could find to figure out what had happened. A trail of spilled noodles and broth on the floor near them was what he’d found, and idly remembering the subject of the argument outside, he followed it. It led to under one of the tables in the corner, and as he kneeled down to investigate he didn’t notice Rua dragging the others inside.

“Yuusei?”

The spirit’s eyes had grown to inhuman size again, he noticed. With how small he was, it really did make him look like a small bug lurking in the corner, and Kiryu couldn’t help but remember him and the other Dark Signers constantly finding Yuusei hiding in the oddest places. Back then, he’d never really thought as to why Yuusei was always doing that, he’d chalked it down to curiosity back then, but…
Yuusei didn’t answer, and Kiryu reluctantly reached over to fish him out. Normally, he’d let him be, but with everything going on…it was better to get things straightened out as soon as possible. Yuusei didn’t resist being taken out, but he clearly wasn’t happy about it if the way his head flopped somewhat to the side meant anything. Still, by the time Kiryu stood up to look over Yuusei properly, his eyes had closed, the two curved glowing lines being the only indication that he was affecting a smile.

“Ah, you found me…I was just finishing this up, see? It was getting a bit noisy, and I wanted to eat in peace, so…”

Yuusei really was a terrible liar, Kiryu noted. Even back in Team Satisfaction, Yuusei was one of the more open of the group, heart always on his sleeve and passionate to the end despite his cool demeanor. How strange was it, then, that he didn’t notice these tells during his time as a Dark Signer. How could he fail to notice Yuusei tensing up every time he was snatched up, the hint of a waver in his voice as he searched for the right words to say without stepping on the god’s toes, or the unnatural smoothness that would sometimes happen if either of them spent too long on their thoughts? How could he never see the reason for Yuusei constantly squirrelling away? The way he was back then…would he even be unable to see this obvious farce, the invisible smile and tense body, holding an empty, crinkled, upside-down ramen cup that was barely bigger than him?

“Yuusei.”

The ghost blinked, eyes shrinking back down to normal in his surprise. Kiryuu could have almost laughed at such transparency, but instead chose to put a hand on Yuusei’s head, patting down the spiked hair and forcing the ghost to look directly at him.

“It’s okay. You don’t have to hide anymore.”

“…” Yuusei’s mouth dropped open, his small body starting to visibly shake. He bowed his head, dropping the ramen cup to the floor as he finally lost his grip on it. “I…I…”

Kiryuu held him close, and the spirit found himself burying his head in the man’s shoulder, the two oblivious to the others watching with different levels of unease, confusion, and realization.

And for the first time since he’d come out of the ground, Yuusei cried.

A.K.A. Gale finds things on Tumblr and has stupid ideas.

The game is Organ Trail. No, not Oregon Trail. Organ Trail. You have to try to travel across the country to Safe Haven when Washington D.C. is nuked after being overrun by zombies.

So yes, I made a group of Yliaster people and then tried to see how they would fare.

Testing out Martyr!Kiryuu's Fabled deck against Usagi's character Yume. Who also runs a Fabled Deck. 8D


i am so proud of myself really )
northwind_gale: (I has a project!)
Basically I've been having this feeling to *update* [livejournal.com profile] kizunaprotector's transformed look for a few months now, but I've been waffling on it. And then I updated it based on the third game upgrade to S.S.Rockman. Yay. :D
northwind_gale: (I has a project!)
So I finally managed to unlock all the packs with Fabled monsters, so I built both a standing deck and riding deck for Martyrverse!Kiryuu. It's done fairly well against the AIs, I've won about 95% of the duels with it. I just need a bit of help fine-tuning it and I'm open to suggestions for either the actual decks or a side deck of fifteen extra cards.

card list here )
northwind_gale: (I has a project!)
✖ Ask any of the characters I roleplay a question, and I'll reply in-character as them with an answer.
✖ Feel free to ask them ANYTHING, regardless of whether you know their canon or not.
✖ Feel free to also ask them as your own character. They will respond accordingly.

pup list heeeeere

yeah sooper old meme is sooper old
northwind_gale: (I has a project!)
GUYS, YOU GOTTA PERSUADE ME OUT OF THIS. OR AT LEAST HELP ME PICK ONE OVER THE OTHER. Because I have two story ideas picking on me at once. The problem is:[Poll #1787541]
But yeah, if anyone wants more details on either of them I can totally give more info. Although I have the feeling the majority of you would vote for Scenario 1 since most of you are friends with me though YGO. STILL. I NEED DIRECTION.
northwind_gale: (I has a project!)
I found some pretty old sketchdoodlings that look like they were done maybe a year ago. They're sketchings of minievilgods!Satisfaction and it looks like I was trying to work out a new style and compare it to the chibi style I was using back then.


go go satisfakshun )
northwind_gale: (What?)
So, I picked up my pen an' pencil for the first time in a few months, wantin' to draw something. And I do. And it comes out different than what I intended.

I swear inconsistency is normal for me. :V

ahurrr something slightly different from my usual fare. Key word is *slightly*. )
northwind_gale: (What?)
I draw stuff on the back of receipt paper. No seriously. The first two hours of the day are reaaaaally slow, and I have to look busy to make a good impression on customers and/or bosses. Usually the drawings get lost or are unfinished or get messed up, but I have managed to rediscover four old ones (I think one of the papers is actually starting to yellow a little) of none other than the little chibi EvilGods!Satisfaction verse. The work isn't my best, considering all I had was a ball-ink pen and so everything is a bit sketchy and skewed. Usually I draw stuff in pencil first XD. But they're cute enough to warrant a distraction.

northwind_gale: (What?)
Derp. Silly Geiru. She let such mundane things as schoolwork and parties distract her from her precious precious Let's Play, did she? Let's rectify that, ah?


In which Gale has some...questionable morals. )
northwind_gale: (:))


So, 'sup gais. Coming out of the woodwork again, so lemme sum up the past...oh, week and a half or so in bulletpoint fashion.

-So. 5D's ending. Not much to say considering's everyone said it already. Could have been better, but at least it was enjoyable to watch.

-Made a new elljay rp pup. [livejournal.com profile] usedsyncronoise

-My brother's been playing through Megaman Starforce Red Joker since I helped him acquire a rom. As a result he's been rewatching old episodes of the anime with me. (He got into the series by watching me watch the show in the first place, so it was awesome nostalgia.) Thusly now I'm tempted to play anime!Cancer Bubble. Somebody kill me.

-I need to start writing fanfic again. But I'm lazy.

-Speaking of lazy, I've had the pictures ready for Chapter 3 of Over the Nexus Let's Play for some time now. But again, lazy to post. Maybe I'll start on it later today. Who knows.

-The listing of Best Wishes episodes on the site where I'm watching it is starting to confuse me, since they're skipping around episodes due to the recent tragedies in Japan. But I must say that Belle is an awesome travelling character and should travel with the group more. She just adds a wonderful liveliness to the group. and my poor poor little heart is starting to ship her and Dento despite me already shipping him with Iris a little and just...fff.

-So uh, I think that's everything for now. Bai bai!
 


northwind_gale: (What?)
So uh. I have a new laptop now. And I had to go through the trouble of transferring every bit of data for my stuff over to the new one. But now that that's done with, I can play without worries! So, chapter two of WC2011, go go go!


in which gale is a hopeless fangirl )
