Current Events
Updated: 8/18/2017

Heya! I'm your friendly neighborhood Larsinny, a demon here to keep you updated on the current debacles going on within the site! Okay, maybe not debacles... Anyway! The Endymion Plot, our Third Main Plot, is underway! We also have our sideplot taking place called Junction! If you're a new member looking to join the new plot, you will want to choose Endymion. However, if you're interested in our sideplot, you may also join that one aswell. The choice is ultimately up to you! The Dungeon Master of the Junction plot is CWIS and the DM of the current Endymion plot is Godai and Grantus.

All templates on the site have been updated, and this also includes the rules aswell. When referring to the rules, please disregard any that say "Old" or "Obsolete" as we are no longer using those rules for the Endymion Plot. Oh, don't be mistaken! I love breaking the rules! But in this case, follow them or erasure!

Wait no. Not like that. Sharaku would huff lightly, shaking his head at Rita's surprise. ''Not this here in Azores specifically. That started around August last year. That's as far as most people's knowledge goes. I was talking about myself there, when I said 12 years. Let's just say my luck is far from generous when it comes to this. I've given up on a normal life by now. Doesn't mean it's not tiring at times.'' Then again, it probably meant something of this caliber could have happened in the past, just elsewhere. But, he had been too busy with his own problems to take notice, in case it actually had. Most likely, he wouldn't have been able to do much back then anyway. He hadn't been in a very good state. Not that he was at the greatest now, but it was something to work with. Either way, he couldn't say whether this did really extend to the past, or if it had been just people messing with bits here and there.

He would close his eyes, staying silent for a while, thinking over her words. In a way...she was right, but..how do you change that? Those that gained from this would protest, and completely erasing fights wasn't the best idea either. Sometimes, conflict could lead to a better understanding in the end. It just needed to be moderated, and done the right way. There's no way to make people suddenly happy and satisfied with everything. You have a right to disagree...problem was the way it was being done nowadays. He would sigh. ''I see your point. However...how? That would require you to change the mentality of most humans to a great degree. Is it even possible to have a world where everyone down to a T is happy and satisfied? That sounds kind of like a fairytale to me. Besides, I sort of disagree about the fights. Conflict can make you understand others and their ideals better. I'd say it just needs to be done differently. It is possible to have a fight without resorting to extreme negativity.'' It was a hard task, yes, but it was possible. Yet, it required both parties to try for it which, sadly, rarely happened. The world sucked the way it was...but was there an actual way to make it better..one that at least sounded real? Perfection could be destructive itself.

He would chuckle faintly. ''Good for you, then. The only school related things I can remember well are different languages. Everything else is mostly up in the clouds for me.'' On the other hand, it probably depended on what was viewed as useless. Still, when it came to school, that was as far as it went. Maybe biology, but he would have to focus on that.

Ehm, maybe. ''I still find the idea rather strange. Though, what do I know? Unless I get to try, I can't say for sure.'' Sure, he could speak to the Shadow he was stuck with, but he doubted it was the same. The two of them were barely similar. Actually, they didn't get along in general. They were two different beings, and from what he was hearing, he could assume that a Persona was a part of the person that wielded it. Sounded easier to handle, maybe...but strange. Speaking to yourself..in a way..was hard to imagine, okay? He would shrug when she asked what did he think about her and Nero's 'teamwork'. ''I don't know..? It's not like I have much to go on in terms of experience. Seeing it is not the same as doing it yourself.'' That was a simple fact.

''Hm.''
, he would hum faintly. ''Normally, no. Still, there are times when you dislike even the person that is supposedly your friend. Can't get along all the time. If a bit of bad attitude is enough to ruin a friendship, then it wasn't a real friendship in the first place. I don't have to feel like being sugary nice to someone all the time just because they are my friend. Being someone's friend means you like their company for what it is, no? If you have a real problem with the way they act, then don't associate with them.'', he'd state in a slight deadpan. Isn't that common sense? Well, maybe not, seeing as he was having problems with that a lot...though, it may be his own fault. Yet, he wasn't stopping anyone from walking away when they found out he wasn't who they thought he was at first.

''Not saying you can't be. However, it doesn't mean I'll listen to your orders.'' She could be a coach all she wanted, but it did not make him obliged to listen. He was going to say something else, but halted when she sort of crashed down...or so it seemed. He needed to adjust to seeing things upside down first. ''You work at the circus? That's interesting news.'' He was actually surprised here. He wouldn't have pegged her to be that type. On the topic, however....''Ahem. Not sure. A talent, maybe? I'm just good at things like that. I can do you a backflip, cartwheel or such, just name it. On the other hand, I can't say I would excel in stuff like push ups here. You'd surely beat me at that in a longer run. I never focused on strenght training before.'' Not to say he was weak, but he surely couldn't match up to someone who practiced that a lot. Everyone had their own field they were good in. That said, he would stay upside down for a while longer, waiting for whatever her response was.

"I know that it wasn't in the Azores Region. Naomi-nee told me that the stuff here only started half a year ago or so... that doesn't make it better, though. Just the fact that this supernatural stuff has been around since at least 12 years ago is terrifying. Like... seriously..." Rita closed her eyes, still frowning and gritting her teeth. Seriously, if it was this bad with Thesis and the Angels already... what would have happened if this started sooner? What even happened to start this?

Rita would sigh and then lay on her back in the sand, looking up at the night sky. "I'm not hoping to change everyone's mentality by myself... And besides, I didn't say I wanted everyone to be happy all the time. Conflict is necessary, that's obvious. However... how it is now, it's far too abundant, no-one can deny that and make sense while doing it. That's why I'm going to do my best to stop any fight I find unnecessary. As I said, my world is one where I won't have to interfere, one where any conflict is required to advance and not just done for conflict's sake. Do you get me now? I'm not wishing for a fairy tale world, I'm wishing for the ideal one, the one where everything happens for a reason and people can flourish together... one where we don't need to fight all the time for every little thing." It was as expected... Rita never expected someone to understand her right away without countering the basic idea. Her Reason was much more than stopping fights altogether... it was to plant greater understanding in humanity's mind, and actually have them think instead of sticking to a blind journey that is complete belief. Life is lived through questioning, through pondering, through finding what is actually real. By not opening your mind, you limit your life itself, and that lead to conflicts of hate, clashes of beliefs. That is what was wrong with the world, and what Rita wanted to change.

"I'm... decent at languages. I only have English in school right now, though, so nothing too bad. Hell, I get top grades on that, most of the time. It's the one subject I consistently achieve the top of the chart in." She was proud of her marks most of the time, but they were never extremely special. Rita wasn't a genius by any means, even if she was very smart, so the top list wasn't her regular ranking... except when it came to English. Being a Japanese student, just her level of English speech and without too much of an apparent accent already put her far above some of her classmates, even if they were native speakers.

"Fair enough. Though, y'never know, it's possible that you may awaken to one later on. Always a chance. I don't know if you could or not, but that'd certainly be pretty amazing." She wasn't entirely sure if it'd be possible, but why be negative about it? Sure, her mood usually turned to the negative side of things, but Rita really preferred it to be positive... or at least that's what she showed to the outside. A positive outlook towards situations in life inspires others, makes them trust her. If people knew that she had so many insecurities... well, that wouldn't make her favorable, now would it?

"Well, Nero and I are pretty much in sync all the time now... so I guess it would be hard to notice. I prefer to do things myself, though, instead of relying on her. It feels different and it's much more satisfying too, y'know?" The silvernette chuckled tiredly, huffing to the air. Nero and her were both proud of how they acted together and that was just fine for them... having a bond of trust between Persona and User was always essential, so there wouldn't be any mishaps during battle.

"I guess you're right. I define "friend" as someone you like to be around, and don't want to make mad or such. It includes being your true self to them as well and they won't judge, but also the opposite. So maybe being condescending towards someone like that is what makes your friendship... maybe. I really dunno. The only person I consider a true friend to the heart right now... is Lia..." Rita looked away for a moment, hiding her face from Sharaku. She disliked having a lot of friends so her interactions always pretty much limited themselves to just one small group that she cared about and would give her life to protect... it was her nature to be protective of other people, kinda like a big sister. That's the reason she made that for her...

"That sounds counter-intuitive. I'm guessing you don't want a good grade by term's end, do you?" She smirked, happy with her counter. She didn't consider herself a teacher by any means, but it was always fun to throw that back in a similar or equal situation to this. "I work there as a caretaker but I may become a performer soon, dunno yet." Rita shrugged, not entirely sure what to say. "...huh. You really don't look like the athletic type. I guess it's the thin frame... you kinda remind me of a snake now." Rita looked Sharaku up and down for a moment while lying still on the sand. This must have looked weird, a girl sprawled out on the sand and an obviously older man standing right next to her... upside-down. The image was comical enough to make Rita let out a light snicker.

Hm, well. ''I suppose so. Though, if I give it a second thought, from what I've seen, I'd say it has been around much longer, in a sense. Most likely, the supernatural has existed all along. It just didn't cause any disturbance, and most people weren't aware of it at all. I doubt it just suddenly popped up one day, and even if so, my experience suggests it must have been at least another few years back, not just the 12.'' It made sense. If they could as much as make experiments in Shadows back then, it meant they had been aware of it for a while. Otherwise, they wouldn't have that much knowledge and everything. Still, he would probably guess that it was simply always around, just not causing trouble like it was now, for some reason.

Fine, fine. ''I do get it. Just one question...you say everything should happen for a reason...and if I want do do something without having a reason for it?'' It wasn't like he always justified his actions, or anything that went on. Reason was nice to have, and it did make a goal more steady, but was it always needed? ''That aside...your idea is nice, though I find it a bit funny. I still don't get how this all is supposed to be done. People resist change, no matter what it is. How are individual humans supposed to change the whole humanity..? Besides, it's a little controversial, seeing as you will have to face unnecessary fights to achieve what you want. With the set up the Angels gave us, there will be conflict when people join different Angels that have differing views. And I somehow doubt it will be any close to peaceful. There are so many with these powers now...whose 'wish' will the Angels uphold in the end?'' Her idea was sound, yes, but what were the requirements to get one through anyway? What did it matter if you had a good one, considering how many people that had a chance were around? Till it ended, it would be exactly what Rita didn't want. Fights over ideals everywhere, with no certain ending.

Well, Sharaku had to admit her English was good. She was Japanese, right? Then again, that was just his opinion. He wasn't English himself, so he couldn't really judge to that extent. ''I'd say English is manageable, yes. I had a harder time learning Japanese, personally. Though, I can't say how well would I measure, seeing as I don't go to school to test my knowledge.'', he would state, a little amused. He didn't think he would do bad, though. So far, no one called him out on speaking English wrong. Most didn't even realize that it was a foreign language to him. That meant he was good enough.

''I have no idea whether it is possible. It would probably depend on what the requirements for having a Persona are. I am not doing bad as I am, but I guess I wouldn't mind testing it out. Until then, I shall do it my way.'' He honestly had no idea. Maybe he could, maybe not. Despite having an idea of how a Persona worked, he didn't know what exactly prompted a specific person to gain one. Therefore, it was up in the air..but there was probably a reason why he didn't. Maybe it had to do with the Shadow..? It seemed that Shadows and Personas were similar in nature, so maybe both on one individual would make them interfere with one another..? Who knew. It wasn't like he seriously needed one. So far at least.

Was it..? ''I on the other hand, would sometimes welcome not having to move around and just have someone else fighting for me. Extra exercise is helpful, but having a Persona wreaking havoc while you just stand there sounds like a good way to take a break to me.'', he would half-complain, but not truly upset. Being stuck with your attacking force the way he was meant he almost always had to move around, or at least be the one to take aim. No rest for the weary, as they say. It was more prominent when the rest of his teammates just stood there, commanding their Personas to do the work, and he had to pretty much do it himself, because his Shadow couldn't move his butt alone.

He would chuckle lightly, not really bothered by her looking away. He wasn't the best when it came to friendship, so he had nothing to be mad about here. ''I personally prefer to not even define the term 'friend' at times. I'd just find out that I don't really have any. Anyway, if you don't mind me asking...who is this Lia you talk about..? I heard you mention that name once before, but it doesn't ring any bells for me.'' Maybe it'd be better to change the topic a little. Friendship was hard to define.

''Hm? Should I? I'm a bit too old for school anyway, so I don't think I care. Feel free to give me an F.''
, he would smirk lightly. That one wasn't going to work on him. Right now, he couldn't care less for school references. He never truly liked it anyway, not even all those years ago when he actually attended one. ''Sounds interesting.'', he would comment simply. It wasn't easy to imagine her as a performer, but maybe she was good. ''I should probably gain some weigth, yes...'', he would mutter, trying to look up at himself, but only ending up unbalacing himself, and just flipping back to his feet, settling into a crouch next to her. ''Should I bite too..?'', he'd prod, finding her comparison funny. Snake, eh? That was something to consider...so far, everyone had been bent to compare him to a cat. This was a new one.

"...it should have just continued to not be a disturbance. If the supernatural just remained inactive forever, what made it start to act up? I don't get this, it's illogical to me... why right now?" Rita shuddered to think that this was all just something that's been there forever... it didn't make sense... the worlds, were they some sort of parallel universe or something? They sure seemed to be. Does that mean that this is all just a rip in the fabric of time and space or something? A glitch in the multiverse? This made no sense and they weren't getting any explanations soon, that was for damn sure... though, if Sharaku and her brother were right, then this didn't need to go on forever, did it? After all, this case seems to be exclusive to the Azores Region, and the previous one she heard about seemed to be pretty confined to a small region of Japan. Did this mean that it could be solved? And if so, what did that make of them afterwards? This was all just... so confusing...

"Simple enough, your reason is: 'Because I want to.' Nothing more, nothing less. There's no such thing has 'no reason', from what I understand, just whims and purposes. There's a difference between a good reason and a bad one for a, well... reason, y'know?" Rita smiled weakly after Sharaku's counter-speech, a bit sad that he hit it right on the nose. "Simply put, Sharaku... they'll grant the wish that has the most followers. I don't want to fight if I can avoid it, and any conflict I go through, I'll make sure it's the last resort. I spoke with Angela about this before, an individual will not be granted their wish if they don't have a group supporting them... and, well, the group obviously has to be big... that's why I'm scared of this. I'm not sure what I need to do yet. Sharaku, do you think people will agree with my world?" She was still held back on this, scared. Despite her cockiness, Rita was obviously just a frightful girl in the end... that's why this end to a run made her shiver... she was terrified of dying. She was terrified of not being able to return to the ones she loved... that was what motivated her to never back down and keep herself safe no matter what happened... but others were still more important.

The silvernette looked up at the stars once again, wondering what her life would have been like had she never come to this region. "I'd say that English is pretty easy. I used to be the wonder of the class at English back in Osaka, y'know? That coupled with pretty good grades all around and Student Council work netted me a spot in Zela. At least, I think it was, not sure what got me approved for certain." Rita shrugged, still lying down, but propelled herself upwards with a balance trick, shifting her weight onto her legs to sit down on the sand, leaning back while her arms supported her.

"Fair enough. Personas are interesting, but so is what you have, really. Being able to fight without a Persona is arguably even more impressive, honestly." She put on a sly smirk, telling the honest truth. Personae were a thing that caught her eye a lot, but someone not having one yet being able to do the same thing you would with it? Oh, that was just begging to be examined. Maybe Rita turned out a bit too much like her brother, him being a detective and all.

"Heh, that could work. Then again, with a Persona, you can potentially double-team someone. That can be quite an impressive strategy if you can pull it off. Besides, resting isn't my style. I like to go up close and personal so I can rip them a new one myself. Though, that's just me, I know there are others who prefer relying on their Persona for that. Nothing wrong with it, really, but I find that using Nero too much dulls my senses, y'know?" She was an oddball, that was for sure. There weren't many that were so gung-ho about going face-to-face with a God damned Shadow. Still, Rita was just that kind of person, but she wasn't careless by any means. Her fighting style is about quick blows and incapacitating your opponents, it's only natural that she would try her hardest to make a Shadow be downed so it didn't bother them anymore. If it was killed right away instead, well, more power to her.

Maybe Sharaku was right. "Friend" really was a weird concept at times... but him asking about Lia surprised Rita, though. "Um, I guess most don't know her as Lia... Cuore is who I'm talking about, the lead performer at the circus. She's, um... my best friend..." Rita curled up while thinking of what to say, hugging her knees with a slightly happier expression. She liked talking about Lia... but maybe it wasn't really the time for that. The performer should currently be at the circus, safe... that's all Rita cared about.

"I'll give you lower than an F if you keep that attitude up. Hmph." Rita glared comically at Sharaku, obviously not in a serious way, as indicated by her puffed cheeks. "It's pretty cool. I take care of the animals and such, give them food, wash them... I'm still scared of the bigger ones, though. God... those elephants can be surprisingly aggressive some times... Mickey's pretty cool, though, I always play ball with him when I get to feed him." She obviously distinctly remembered Mickey the Sealion and really did enjoy playing around with the animal. It was fun being around such a huge bunch of critters, most of them not aggressive, of course. "Bite me and I'll make sure you won't have the teeth to do it again." Rita'd state coldly at his comment with a slight deadpan look. She was kidding, of course, and hoped that Sharaku caught on to that... if he didn't, well... she'd apologize, she guessed.

Why? Hell if he knew. One can never expect something that is around to never surface, can they? If not now, it would have happened later. ''I wouldn't say it had been completely inactive, just..definitely not known to more than a small amount of people. As for why, and now, I have no idea, but I think that it did not help that there were people that dabbled with it in the past. Something must have happened, but my knowledge doesn't go far enough for me to figure it out.'' Well, there was no way for anyone to know as to what exactly triggered these events here. Not until they found out. Supernatural was hard to predict, and he wasn't going to firmly state something that could be completely wrong unless he had proof.

He would narrow his eyes a little. Brain melt. ''Too much reason for me. I give up on this one. I suppose it works one way or another.'' She was sort of right. Saying you want to do it is a reason in its own way. Though, there were times when he couldn't really say why was he doing something. What was it then? Did 'Just because' count as a reason too? Eh, maybe it did. ''A group...'' It did make sense, yes, but it still did not guarantee that big fights wouldn't occur. There were people who didn't give a damn about that, and would persist on their idea, despite being at a disatvantage. Some people don't know when to quit. He could think at least of 2 that sort of fit the quota, and that was just out of the top of his head. ''I guess it makes sense, but I don't think fighting is entirely avoidable in any case. There are those that won't give no matter what, even when it's obvious they have the short end of the stick. And what do you know? There may be an Angel that supports violence. That wouldn't be nice...'' Of course, he'd take a more peaceful approach himself, but somehow he doubted it would be easily accessible in this kind of situation. In a way, it was life or death...and people acted irrationally when under pressure. Well, most of them, that is. Fights were bound to break out at some point in time.

He would look upwards contemplatively. That was hard to answer. What did he know about how would people take her idea? ''...I can't tell for sure. I think your idea is solid, but it all depends on the individual. Someone may agree, and another person may find it stupid, because they actually like the constant fighting. Humans differ vastly. This task is hard for anyone who tries. You can never tell how many would follow you. Your best bet is probably to keep searching for those that would consider it.'' What else was there to do? There's no solution that would gain a collective agreement from the whole humanity. In the end, it would depend on who is the most convincing and presents their ideas in a way that makes people like them, and want to follow. That, or by physical force, and simply pushing people to go with it. Not nice, but an option nevertheless.

Ah, yes. Well, for a Japanese person, English probably wasn't too horrible. He found it less complicated...at the very least in writing. Whoever came up with the writing systems in Japanese must have liked to make things hard for the people. ''I suppose I can agree with that. Even though I wasn't overjoyed about learning it. At least it wasn't hard to pick up.'' Thank God for that. ''Did you want to come here? This is somewhat different from Japan.'' Not completely, but still, travelling far away is always a big change. Was she happy about being here, now that all this was happening?

''Is it..?'', he would smile thinly. From an outsider perspective, it probably seemed cool. However, he didn't find it extremely enjoyable. On the other hand, he had no idea whether a Persona would be better than this. Still..as impressive as it was...getting there was no fun. ''Not sure how impressive would you find it if you knew the concept, and what it entailed. It may be impressive to look at, but I don't believe there would be many that would willingly want this.'' His tone was calm, sort of indifferent. He would shrug lightly. ''It sounds like an interesting strategy, yes. Speaking of which, I am fine with getting up close, but at times having an option not to would be nice. I think a combination would be the most comfortable.'' Having the Shadows in his face was not always a pleasant image, and having something to deal with them instead of him would be quite helpful at times.

He would blink a few times, still not really recalling anything. Well, he had been to the circus only once, and he didn't pay it much mind in general. Ah well. ''I think I still don't know who that is, but good for you.'' Having a best friend was probably nice. ''Hm? Making up your own grades? I didn't know you were qualified to do that.'', he would retort smoothly. As far as he knew, F was the lowest there is. Unless she wanted to give him a fake grade, there shouldn't be anything lower than F. F- ? That was pretty much the same anyway. ''So you like animals..? Well, sometimes they do strike me as more friendly than people...'' Sometimes. ''But I like my teeth.'', he'd state with a light huff when she knocked him off. He didn't think she was really serious...besides, how would she do that..?

Rita pondered the issue for a moment, still slightly disgusted at it. Sharaku's words at least served to calm her down a bit. If it was just active and natural in the world, then it felt slightly less out of place. "I don't really know what to think about this anymore... it's confusing. If someone told me about it before I actually experienced it, I'd never have believed it..." She frowned, not even really wanting to talk about it anymore. Would they be better off if this never happened? If they never awakened? How would their lives have been had this not surfaced? Better yet, what would have happened if Rita never came to the Azores Region? This was all just... so perplexing, she hated it...

Maybe it would be better to think of other things for now. "Hey, suit yourself." There really was no such thing as doing something for "no reason" seeing as even "just because" ended up being one as well. "I'm ready to fight, just... I'm just gonna try not to, y'know? If there's an Angel like that, they'd pretty much be the natural opposite of my wish... against someone like that, I think a fight is completely unavoidable." The silvernette sighed, still unhappy with the way this was going. Angels were still confusing so it wouldn't surprise her if there was one fitting Sharaku's description. One that advocated violence... how would she even fight someone like that?

She smiled lightly at Sharaku's answer, satisfied. "Then... do you agree with my idea, Sharaku? Will you help me?" Sharaku was a friend of hers, that she knew for sure, and, if anything, would be more than glad to have his support. Even if he didn't join her, they still were friends, right? It didn't matter much to her, but it would make her happier to have someone on her side. Maybe she could even get more comrades with this Reason... maybe. He was right that humans were fickle, they never agreed with each other, but perhaps, just perhaps... this world could actually bind them together.

"Well, yeah, languages don't really tend to be fun to learn. I know, like... two right now and I'm struggling with learning others... I could learn if I really wanted to, but it's actually boring, in a way." Sharaku's question, though, made her think for a moment... "I can't say I actually wanted to come here. I did so to broaden my horizons, pretty much... plus, I heard that Zela's actually a very good Academy, so I came to try it out." After a light shrug, Rita got up slowly, making sure not to push herself and her wound. It still hurt, although the resting helped and the push-ups helped with distracting her from it...

"...you're kinda scaring me now, Sharaku." Contradicting her words, Rita put one a small smile. She didn't really know how he could use his weapon like that, but it was definitely interesting. Of course it was from an outsider view, though... though she did wonder why he was like that. "Heh, I actually prefer that too, kinda, just so I can still do damage while hanging around the back. I'm actually glad that Nero has the ability to use magic too, so I don't have to run in with her whenever fighting something." A balance between close and long range was good, it made you more versatile. She liked it. Though her weapon was her main source of damage, her Persona's magic could potentially deal quite a lot of damage as well, depending on what happened. It was a shame that she just had one type of magic to use, though...

"Huh, really? There are even posters of her all throughout Penecia..." Rita felt a strangely cold bead of sweat run down her face. Lia should be known by everyone in the islands, pretty much, so, really... did he actually not know her? "I'm the teacher, I do what I want!" She huffed, proud. Rita wasn't only the teacher, but the master here, as she had more experience, so the grades she gave were entirely up to her. That made sense, right? "Yeah, I like animals. They're really sweet when they get used to you... like this sealion I've known since before working there, when I played with it during a show... err, well, when Lia picked me out of a crowd for a show. He's really awesome, actually, and I always make sure to play with him when my shift is over." Mickey really was an amazing animal, sweeter than some people she'd spoken to before, that was for sure. To Sharaku's next comment, though, she'd smirk slightly. "Then don't bite." With a very light deadpan, the silvernette stretched for a few seconds, then brought out her phone to look at the time. It was late... well, not really late late, but late. Maybe they should get going.

"Hmm... it's getting late, y'know? Should we go back to Penecia now?" Rita turned to Sharaku for his answer, a neutral expression being former by her features.

Well, that one was fairly obvious. Who would believe such 'madness' without any proof? Young kids maybe, because they like fairy tales. ''Not many would, I suppose. Can't say whether I would back then myself. I wasn't that old when I ran into this for the first time.'', he'd state with an amused tone. Well, he'd have to be 12 or younger to have been told before he got involved. He really didn't know what would he have thought at that age. Perhaps he would have viewed it as funny.

He would smile thinly. ''With pleasure.'' He would suit himself, sure. Though, his expression would turn into a thoughtful one soon afterwards, when she asked him whether he agreed with her ideals himself. ''Under consideration for now.'', he would chuckle faintly. ''But, I find your idea nice. For now, I have no reason to be against you, at least. Will see how it develops.'' He didn't really want to rush a decision. Besides, he'd rather know more first before choosing a side for sure. If any at all. He wasn't very fond of the idea of everyone splitting up for this. Why were they forming teams in the first place then..?

''Well, I know three fluently. Mostly because I kind of had to learn due to travelling around a lot. I find it boring when I don't like the language I'm supposed to learn.'' There were things that were much more boring than learning languages. It all depended on circumistance. ''I see...If you had a choice, would you pick to go to some other place..?'' To be honest, he wasn't sure why was he even interested in this. Guess travelling was a subject he was used to, in his own way. And it made for some conversation. Always better than silence...well, almost.

He would sneer lightly. ''Maybe I should..'' Scary wasn't what he had been trying for, but it was a plausible idea. It would be entertaining. Even though it seemed she didn't mean what she said very seriously, based on her expression. When she spoke about the deal between close up fighting and long range, he would simply hum lightly, choosing not to respond verbally. There wasn't anything relevant to say anymore. Ehm. He would blink a few times when she seemed exasperated about him not knowing who she was speaking of. ''I'm absentminded at times. I don't really study posters either.'', he'd respond with a shrug. Maybe he had seen before, and just didn't remember the name...who knew. These things rarely caught his attention.

''That so? I could complain about you being unfair. I'd rather not a teacher that does whatever they want.'', he'd throw back in a deadpan, before sticking his tongue out at her. Whatever goes. He'd probably do his own thing in the end nevertheless. ''Good for you. I've never seen a sealion before. Then again, I did see a dolphin once.'' It was about the same anyway. He didn't really dislike any particular animal. For now. ''No food for me, I guess...'', he would huff lightly, giving in this time. Most likely, she wouldn't taste good anyway.

''Hm? Well, alright. I don't mind.'' There was probably no use loitering around for much longer. The prison wasn't exactly the best place to be at during late hours. That said, he'd go with her, until they parted. Such a long day.
