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. I'm pretty sure that "EEEEHHH?!" is going to be the punchline for all of my comics on this crossover.

Also, the comic got so dialogue-heavy that I gave up on trying to write it into the comic. You get captions instead. Yaaaay.

what they wear  )
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 AM GOING TO KEEP DRAWING ZEXAL X STAR FORCE SHENANIGANS.

You know, if I can keep thinking up stuff.

Just a silly sketch this time though. )
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: (A boy and his best friend.)
So, I've had this little image in mind for a while, I just haven't gotten around to actually drawing it until now. Have your usual dose of my stupid, guys.
never change show never change )
northwind_gale: (I has a project!)
So yeah, about two weeks ago Starry managed to find some free time to introduce Tiger and Bunny to me. I never really watched anything new in the summer since that's a fairly busy time for me, so by the time I got around to watching it, I finished it all just in time to catch episode 24.

The fact that the very same night, Pixiv not only had a *fried rice* tag but had over 100 entries for it, pretty much cemented the fact for me that the Tiger and Bunny fandom is AWESOME and I gotta do something to contribute. Even if I'm as late as hell. ;-;

So far I've written two anon fics and drawn a generic fried rice picture to join the rest of them.

Drawing something that ISN'T YGO? WHAT IS THIS FANDOM MAGIC. )

Hiatusing!

northwind_gale: (What?)
Long story short, going on a vacation for a week. A day or two in Myrtle Beach and then off to Disney World! It's gonna be great. :D So yeah, I won't be on the computer at all. Gone from this Sunday to next Sunday/Monday.

To supplement this post so that it's not a mere two lines long, have a random sketch of a girl in a bonnet I scrawled at work.





The crook and sheep was an afterthought, really. :|
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: (Sheepish grin)


So yeah, this is just a quick little update before I vanish into the ether. Again. It's just not my month for being on the 'net. ;w; Still sharing one big family computer with everyone, still trying to avoid the parents catching me on it. :V

So how was everyone's holidays? I'll probably find out once I go through my f-list at some point later in the day but yeah.

Also how about dat Zexal. Yeah, I know I'm later than late on making a post about this. I BLAME REAL LIFE. But from what I've seen so  far, with the anime and manga previews, I'm finding Yuuma quite adorable. This might be my bias in favor of little kids speaking. But his spunky go-get'em attitude and his character design appeal to me.

Also I drew this because I can't help but feel that Yuuma's the kind of guy that would bond with Yuusei pretty decently considering Yuusei's history with kids around Yuuma's age. You know. When the writers bother to remember said kids. :V also it makes me wonder what kind of tag DM x GX x 5D's x Zexal art would have on Pixiv. 5DzeX? 5DXal? It's an amusing train or thought.

Later, guys!


northwind_gale: (What?)


It's moar little evil Satisfaction like I promised, gais! :D
 

Okay, originally I wanted to draw them interacting with their canon selves but then I realized I didn't actually want to put in the effort of drawing the canon selves. So it's just them interacting with and stealing things from their canon selves, apparently. 



 

I draw too much. )
northwind_gale: (What?)
Thanks to this thread of stupid cute, [livejournal.com profile] immicolia and I ended up making some kind of ridiculous verse in which all of Team Satisfaction ended up falling to some evil force one or the other and they all end up being evil gods together, with pics, fics, and all. And for some reason they're about six inches tall. No, I can't explain that bit.

So yeah, of course I'd draw more of them. Mostly because I'm tempted to play one or two of them and so having stuff to icon from would be nice if I did get around to that. 8U

So yeah, that link has the pics and fics mentioned before, so I ain't posting those again. TOO LAZY. 8U



yeah I said I would draw other things beside faibu deezus BUT WHATEVER )
northwind_gale: (Worried)
IT TOOK ME AN HOUR TO MAKE IT, YOU JERK. and it's late and I feel miserable now and just *cries forever* you just took out randomly huge bites of my post and it's horribly mangled and the coding is forever lost and-and-and god i hate you so much right now

slow browsers will die their death here )
northwind_gale: (What?)
Generally they do this once a year, people come around in the morning and afternoon and the local community cooks up their best dishes and sell them to raise money for the temple. Lots of people who normally wouldn't stop by do, and we occasionally get people who catch what's going on as they pass by and stop in for a snack. It's been getting more and more popular and active every year.

This year it's gotten so popular that they decided to do one in the evening. To make it more appealing, they've even managed to set up a pretty decent looking stage (that we've used for maybe a year now, it's still so new lD) outside, and local kids and adults set up their own little dancing groups, do some traditional dances that occur every now and then in the middle of the auction. Littlest bro's in the children dancing group, and he's one of the best they have, good enough to get a solo dance (with three other kids that were pretty much acting and not really dancing, just moving props, but yeah), and mom's pretty much convinced that now that the dancing group is permanent, she's gonna keep him in that group since he's the only one out of the kids who doesn't have some sort of artistic release. =B

Now, I've always been popular with the younger kids there, but I haven't been going to the temple regularly for a while now since I have to pick up the autistic bro and do schoolwork, so some of the younger kids who barely know me don't really pay me much attention.

Until they found me doodling a pictar of [livejournal.com profile] kizunaprotector. SUDDENLY I AM POPULAR AGAIN.

So they go on to be impressed with my subpar drawing skills and constantly ask me if I know how to draw other things (to which my response to all of them were: I probably need a reference 8U), and I eventually promised the doodle to one of the kids who was a particularly big fan of 5D's. I had to keep correcting myself all the time because I was always using Japanese names instead of dub names, BUT I LIKE WATCHING THE DUB SO YEAH, GOOD THING I KNEW.

So yeah, I told them I was gonna scan it and then they could have it.

I'm hoping they don't start flooding me with requests the next time I end up there. BV

and now with this post I realize I should probably make an art post today or tomorrow, I have quite the backlog. 8U

EDIT: FUCK I LOVE THIS SONG 8U. ONE OF THE CLASSICS THAT PEOPLE JUST LOVE DOING DANCES FOR lD


northwind_gale: (:o?)


which means she can still scan in pictars despite being on slowatus. 8D
