002 | Tokyo In Trouble

Who: Everyone!
What: Surprise! There's a disaster on the Near Shore.
When: Late at night (February 24, 2016) into mid-afternoon (February 25, 2016)
Where: The Meeting Hall of the Heavens AND various places around Tokyo
Summary: A nice little greeting for the new guests and an unpleasant surprise for the older ones~

A sudden, loud blast of noise persists throughout the entirety of the Heavens. It sounds much like a war horn of ancient times being played at a decibel that is meant to shake the very core of every being within its range. No matter how much you might try to block out the noise, it remains ringing in your ears deafeningly, and somehow you find yourself compelled towards the Meeting Hall - the place where you were first introduced to the Heavens and what you have gotten wrapped up in.

Anyone checking their phones will notice a large, bright red alert flashing at them - 'EMERGENCY! REPORT IMMEDIATELY!' It seems that the Heavens have taken to using modern technology for their messages as well.

Once you have reached the Meeting Hall, you will find that every wall has turned into a sort of television screen, displaying various streets and buildings in Tokyo, everyone one literally crawling with ayakashi both big and small. A voice that you recognize as Amaterasu's - though you would never be able to describe it properly - rings throughout the halls.

"We need your help, brave gods, loyal shinki. A rift the likes of which we have never dealt with has opened on the Near Shore. We must end the ayakashi who are harming our dear followers. Please come to our aid in this time of need."

Meeting Hall

The once garishly decorated Meeting Hall looks very much like the base of operations for an army at war. There are gods gearing up with shinki and man-made gear as well and plenty of gods and shinki saying prayers before they head out to battle. Everything you might need to make yourself feel safe during a fight has been provided, including every type of weaponry. But, of course, only shinki wielded by a god can actually destroy an ayakashi.


In the main hallway, there is an innocuous door with a small, nicely written sign that reads "Gentle Counselling". Inside the door is a small room with a few sweetly smiling shinki inside who are willing to listen to your problems and answer any questions you might have. They are also here to help out any gods that are having a hard time dealing with knowing about how their shinki died and any shinki that is having trouble coming to terms with the fact that they are dead.

February 24

The rift that has opened is so vast that there is literally nowhere in Tokyo that you can go without encountering a rampaging group of ayakashi. Everything is utter chaos and there are creatures everywhere for you to fight. Let's just hope that you can get out of this dangerous battlefront mostly unscathed.

February 25

Towards the middle of the day, it will seem that the ayakashi are becoming fewer and further between. Things seem to be calming down a lot, though they are nowhere near normal yet, especially since the rift is taking longer to close than the Heavens would like. Fortunately, no new ayakashi have escaped into the Near Shore from the rift since this morning, due to a barrier that has been placed around it. Still, the ayakashi seem to be really hell-bent on getting away from you all now rather than fighting...

In Summary:
  • There are a ton of ayakashi on the Near Shore that need to be destroyed.
  • The newbies are getting one hell of a welcome as a result.
  • Seek counselling if you need it!
  • Go kick some evil ass.
  • Comment to the first thread to get a randomly generated number of ayakashi to face.
  • Mods will gladly play out any ayakashi interactions where requested.
  • Try not to get killed~

Feb 24th - useless duo

[Perfect. Hajime, meet Gintoki, as the two crash into each other on the road. It's what happens when you carelessly run around while looking at the terrifying monsters behind you. Though, Gintoki being a grown man, Hajime probably gets the worst of it. This was so not refreshing. There wasn't even any toast anywhere.

Unfortunately, he doesn't have a shinki either. All he has is a wooden staff to knock them around a bit. For now, though, he'll sit up while rubbing his head and wondering what the hell just happened. He'll say something when he spots her.]

Eh-! Oi . . . oi, you're not dead, are you? You're not, right? Oi!

[what kind of a question even is that??]

Most useless duo of gods

[She had taken a quick glance over her shoulder to check on the large group of Ayakashi behind her. Somehow she had a good distance on them despite their size and her lack there of. SHe's not worried and waves back at them.]

Hurry! Hurry! Over here! You don't want to lose me, right?!

[She sounds way too cheerful about being chased by monsters that want to end her. But that isn't were her attention should be as Gintoki makes apparent. She turns just in time to crash into Gintoki. With both of them running, its a hard impact.

She falls to the ground and skidding just a little. That hurt! She lays there for a moment, staring up at the sky. What a entrance! Talk about crashing onto the scene... She sits up after a second, rubbing her backside.]

Oww ow ow...... You're build like a tank!

[She slowly looks to him, blinking at his questions. Dead? Nope! She is still breathing! That would be a terrible ending.]

Nope! Not Dead. See?

[Hajime perks and waves her arms in front of her. Everything still working and attached and a distinct lack of death!]

Are you okay?
pachintoki: (don't make it sound so bad)

[personal profile] pachintoki 2016-03-22 10:01 pm (UTC)(link)
[As she talks to him, he'll freeze and turn around.

Yeah, that's right, turn around. Because, by now, he'd gotten up and he, he was just looking for more monsters. It's not like he was going to leave the scene of this accident and deny everything. And just leave her there. Or something like that. He wasn't, not really. ]

Eh- Aah, hahaha! [WOW he's laughing kind of loud] Yeah, yeah I'm like, you know, I'm better than okay! [He'll ruffle a hand through his hair with another stupid laugh, giving her a wave back, only to glance at his--

--hand, he'll raise his eyebrows a little --

It's not like there's blood all over his hand or anything. He's not frantically scrubbing it on his white kimono, leaving stains everywhere.

. . . okay, maybe he bumped his head on the sidewalk. It looks worse than it is.]

Hahahahaha, I was . . . you know, I was eating a. . . a sandwich. . . !

[trying so hard to be cool]

[Hajime pushes herself off the ground and dusts herself off as he talks. She's got a few minor scrapes from the rough concrete but nothing too bad. Not like his bleeding head.]

That's good that you're okay! Your head doesn't want to agree though...!

[She walks over to him, a distinct hop in her stride until she is standing close. He's good a good few inches on her.]

If you sit down real quick I'll stop the bleeding for you, mister!
pachintoki: (okay everyone)

[personal profile] pachintoki 2016-03-27 10:52 pm (UTC)(link)
N-no no, it's okay, my head doesn't agree with a lot of the stuff I do.

[He'll lean back just a bit with a step, just so he can look down at her.]

. . . it looks like it's bleeding a lot, huh? It's probably just, you know, someone was painting a building somewhere, and it's probably fine. . .like, I feel pretty good right now.

[He'll give his head a few knocks, but that was a mistake because he's wincing just a bit. He'll sigh.]

Fine, fine. It's not a big deal though.

[He's had so much worse.]

[He's so stubborn..and tall! Hajime just watches, almost winching herself when he knocks his own head. It doesn't prove her wrong; just furthers her concern. So she matches his stubbornness with her own, standing there patiently.]

That won't do! Let me see!
pachintoki: (you're so embarrassing)

[personal profile] pachintoki 2016-04-15 08:58 am (UTC)(link)
Are you kidding me? You're the little girl I just sent flying. You should let me inspect you first, oi. I don't need a mom you know! I'm a man.

[This all being said as he sits back down on the ground, letting out an impatient sigh as she checks him out. Those phantoms were surely close, and he didn't want to be stuck nearby.]

Hey, why don't you say we go somewhere that isn't crawling with monsters? We're sitting ducks here. Unless, you know, unless you have some really impressive power or maybe a weapon? Are you a god?
