Current Events
Updated: 6/20/2016

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, has started! We also have our previous plot's part two running next to it for Azores! 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 older plot, Azores, you may also join that one aswell. The choice is ultimately up to you! The Dungeon Master of the Azores plot is Grantus and the DM of the current Endymion plot is Philemon.

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!

Be sure to constantly check the update thread for any changes to the boards. You can find it ->Here<-

"Hehe, why thank you, Lui. And I see. I can't really say I've found myself either. Like, I really don't know what to do with my life once I'm done with school, since it's... everything I've known, really. I know my dad wants me to take over the buissness, but... I'm not sure I really want to."

"That's perfectly normal. Very few people have a purpose defined early for them. Seems like you dad's giving you a push in the direction he wants. He must really pride himself on how he runs it. I know my dad's given me some encouragement to take a look at his accounting job, but that's dull to me. My advice is to find some interests to explore. I lived near the dojo in Little Tokyo, so I took up kendo before I got into fencing. The town may be kind of cramped, but it's a hotbed for cultures and activities to try out. Who knows, maybe I'll show you around... if that's not pushing our secrecy."

Seeing that there were no logs to set on the stumps, he decided instead to select a thinner, shorter tree from among the others to train on. Backing a few steps away from the tree and motioning to Batilde to move towards the stumps to give him space.

In an instant, his smile dissolved into a stoic expression, one filled with focus instead of kindness. In an instant, Lui would begin a barrage of strikes on the wood, starting with light strikes with the tip into heavy blows with the blade. While the bark on the sides of the tree appeared to be cracking off, the wood below would not appear to be damaged. Lui was striking with restrained power, in consideration of his sword and the tree. Some of the branches at his side were not so fortunate, as some broke off with the blade swinging through them.

After a few rounds of intense and rapid jabs and slashes, Lui began to noticeably sweat. This prompted him to take a breather and grab a bottle from his bag and guzzle it on the stump nearest the tree. He looked back to Batilde.

"Well, this isn't exactly a plastic dummy, so I'll try not to cut the tree down to size. Don't think this fella can take a full-on pummeling. You want to take a shot at it?"

"I guess it is, huh?" Batilde replied, with a faint smile on her lips. There was no need to worry about that now anyway, was there? She still had at least a year here, if not more before she had to make her decision. And a lot of things could change over the course of a single year. "Interests, huh? Well... I have always liked writing... I guess that's a start?" Batilde said, chuckling a bit to herself. "And yeah, Endymion is big. I'm sure I'll find something I'll enjoy working with." All she had to do was look around and try new things, right? And therein lied the issue... while she was curious on trying out new things, more often than not she needed someone else around to make her take that step forward. "And sure. I'd love that, Lui." She replied, perhaps a bit more teasingly than she intended. Things were going quite well, though, and for that, she was happy. Usually she slipped up at some point, making a bigger mistake and perhaps alienating the person she tried to converse with... Luckily for her, Lui was both easy to talk to, and he seemed to understand (kind of anyway) where she was coming from, which was always a plus.

Batilde watched as Lui let loose on the tree. Each strike was elegant, careful and yet deliberate at the same time. In a way, it was almost like watching someone dance, except it was way more deadly and a little bit less gracious, but it certainly didn't take anything away from the awe-factor of his skill with a blade. "You've done this for a long time, haven't you?" She asked, amazed by how good he was at it. Even with her untrained eye she noticed that he was holding back as to not hurt the tree beyond self-repair. "M-Me? I mean... sure, I can give it a shot, I guess..." She replied with a light blush, standing up.

So, she enjoyed writing? Lui was a fairly studious student, so getting into writing was a consideration. He remembered drawing some primitive comics with his sister, but that practice fell out of practice quickly. He got too hung up on details when it came to world building or writing characters, so a good amount of ideas lasted about half a page before he realized he had nothing else to write. Maybe she'd let him see the type of writing she was good at. Nevertheless, she accepted his offer to tour the town sometime, and Lui kept it as a consideration for later.

"You've done this for a long time, haven't you?"

"Four years now, give or take a few months. It's been a real struggle to get to shape myself to best prepare for it. It takes quick feet, awareness of your body, and a fast reaction time. Sabers aren't the only weapons we use; the others are just more pointed. I prefer this kind of weapon, where you can deflect the opponent strikes when you see them."

Hearing that she was interested in trying her hand with it, he got off the stump and held the handle out to her, the blade pointed at the ground. Should she pick it up, the weight of it was apparent. It was light enough to swing with, but the material made the blade seem heavier than it normally would be. Lui stood at her side, watching her grip.

"Now the thing with this saber is that fencing weapons are held with one hand. The other hand stays at your side. Use your dominant hand, try to grip it around here."

He was noticeably cautious, trying to guide her on how to hold it without directly moving her hands. If he got caught trying to grab and guide her body, it definitely wouldn't make explaining easy.

"Alright, take a few swings. Get a good feel for it. Hit the tree if you want. Just don't strike the trunk with too much ferocity. Fencing is an elegant but quick style of fighting."

"Oh, four years. It's a long time to be doing something like this. Are you competitive at all, or is it just for the fun of it?" Batilde asked curiously as she looked at the blade in Lui's hands. It certainly looked quite dangerous, even if it was just for practicing with. This was the first time she ever even touched something like a sword before. The closest she had gotten was her soulbound weapon, which was a scythe... another bladed weapon, but that's where the similiarities pretty much ended. She did eventually grab hold of the handle, and while it was light enough to carry with one hand, it still had this weird weight to it which gave the sword a semblance of balance to it, in a way. Not that any of this really mattered, since she was pretty weak in terms of physical strength. Nor did she have much stamina to speak of, but this could certainly be improved upon with exercise and practice with something like say a blade. Too bad that Bat didn't get that much in the way of opportinities swinging a giant scythe around, because you know... people would take notice. She held the blade in her right hand, and let Lui help her get into position. While she did blush a fair bit from the bodily contact, she didn't make any attempts to resist at all. She knew very well that his intentions were pure, or at least, that's what she thought anyway. Who knows what goes on inside the head of a man in this situation...

"L-Like this?" Bat asked him nervously as she was slowly goaded her into a decent fencing stance, waiting for confirmation before she struck out at the tree. The blade whistled through the air and struck it's target, although it was a very clumsy blow that would've not done much if anything in an actual fight, and in turn, would leave her very, very exposed to a counterattack from an opponent. Fortunately for her, the opponent was... a tree. So there really was no consequence for failing. And so she tried again, this time with a poke rather than a sweep, and accidentally tripped on one of the tree's exposed roots, causing her to fall over forward. "EEEK!" She yelped followed by a resounding thud of "17-year old girl meets dirt" as she fell. "Oww..." She wasn't badly injured or bruised, but it had still hurt, if only a little bit.

"It was supposed to be just the hands, just the hands..."

Beads of nervous sweat drooped down Lui's head as he realized that his captain instincts of training new members had kicked in, as he suddenly realized that his hands were on her shoulders and back to straighten her posture. As soon as she began to hold form, he quickly stepped away as he realized what he was doing. He was visibly nervous, keeping his hands shoved deep into his pockets. He glanced in any direction he could, expecting to seem some gawking observers but luckily found none.

"L-Like this?"

"Y-yeah... You're good. Just strike when ready."

After his heart began to settle down, he saw Batilde take a quick slash at the tree. Although it was exaggerated and left her open to a counter, it struck with force and determination. Her next move, a jab to the torso of the tree, caused her to neglect the root knot jutting from the ground. Lui looked back up to realize that she had hit the floor, screaming and then examining her minor injury. Lui quickly rushed to her side, grabbing a few bandages from his bag and expecting a wound to wrap up.

"Are you alright? There's a little bleeding there. Here, wash it off. I got some bandages if you got a cut.

But still, that was a good strike. A little exaggerated and open, but strong hit nonetheless. At least the sword didn't rebound off the tree and strike you on the forehead like what happened to Arthur."

Batilde rubbed her cheek a little bit. It was minorly bruised, but nothing to really worry about. "I'm okay... Just a small bruise on the cheek, that's all." She replied, looking at Lui after sitting up straight again, leaning her back against the tree that she had struck earlier. It was nice of him to worry though. She blushed faintly again as Lui offered bandages and some water to clean up the scratch. She gladly accepted the rinsing, even though it stung when the water came into contact with the damaged skin tissue, but it was nothing she couldn't handle. Despite her failed attempt at striking the tree a second time, she felt satisfied with what she had done nontheless. In regards to his compliment, Batilde answered with a cheerful giggle. "Pffft. Are you saying that just to make me feel better?" She did smile warmly at him though. "Thanks for helping out though. Uhm..." She had noticed his unease earlier though... but back then, she didn't really feel like bringing it up, but now seemed like a better time.... To her anyway. "I'm sorry if I made you feel uncomfortable before... You don't get that many girls in the fencing club, I take it?"

Lui sighed with relief at the revelation that her injury wasn't serious. This is exactly why he doesn't take the real steel saber out of the room for training; it would've been a worse cut if it were meant to cut. Lui dabbed some water onto her cheek to wipe off the blood and dirt, watching her wince in pain from the initial contact. Making sure the bleeding was stopped, he set a small spherical bandage on her cheek over the bruise. Batilde responded to his comment as he put away his bottle.

"Pffft. Are you saying that just to make me feel better?"

"Ehehe, maybe. You got some real power behind you. I was the opposite when I started off; I could hit my target precisely, but I couldn't muster up the courage to hit even a dummy with my full strength. It took me a while to get to where I am today. I have my fair share of bruises as well. This little bruise just means you're making progress.

"I'm sorry if I made you feel uncomfortable before... You don't get that many girls in the fencing club, I take it?"

Lui blushed slightly at the mention of girls in the club. They used to have a female member, but she just ended up joining the Martial Arts club instead because, as Lui remembers, "Why fight with swords when I can use my fists?".

"Oh, no. You're fine. It's just that I kind of went on autopilot there, like when I trained the other members. You did say you didn't want your... love interest to get the wrong idea, so I didn't want to get caught getting handsy. But yeah, we don't have many gals in the club, except for the faculty teacher Ms. Kamizura. She claimed to have trained at the dojo in Little Tokyo, but I do a majority of the training. So, yeah, sorry for being awkward back there. At least nobody saw."

He sat there for a moment, watching her amused smile and the badge of honor resting on her cheek before snapping out of it and getting onto his feet, his hand extended to pull her up.

"So you want another try, or would you rather head home?"

"Hehe, Thanks." Batilde replied to the compliment with a light smile. He was a genuinely nice guy, that she had to admit. Or at least, this side of him was. The little comment about her bruise being a sign of progress made her giggle a little bit. He wasn't wrong, but there was just something funny about what he had just said. But it was nice to hear it coming from him. Maybe if she kept this up, and minded her footing next time, she would improve a bit more. It would be a slow process, sure, but why not? It seemed like fun, and besides, she would be making more friends as time moved on, so she had nothing to lose, now did she? "Oh, I see... Would you mind terribly if I joined then?" She asked him, biting her lip nervously. At this point, why not? She needed some physical activity, and while swimming was fun, it felt off somehow, exposing herself to others like that. She never found herself feeling comfortable in a swimsuit, no matter what kind it was.

"It... may not be such a huge deal. I may have overreacted a little bit earlier. I have a tendency of jumping to horrible conclusions when I'm nervous, hehe..." Batilde scratched the back of her neck somewhat awkwardly. Maybe Miyuki wouldn't terribly mind it if Lui and Batilde just hung out. Besides, she wasn't one to believe in simple gossip, so maybe things would turn out okay... As long as things didn't go beyond friendship... but if it did, Batilde had only found someone else... who it was shouldn't terribly matter if the feelings were genuine. But for now, she wanted to keep things cordial between them. He was just a stranger, after all. "It's fine... You were still respectful, so I'm letting it slide." It was just the back and shoulders. Nothing major. It wasn't like he had wrapped his arms around her waist or something. "Either one works for me. Depends on what you want. I have all day." Even though she was bruised, she didn't feel like quitting just yet... but it was up to him in this case, as she could go either way.

Lui's eyes lit up with excitement in response to Batilde offering to join the club. He was having exceptional luck with getting other people to notice the one forgotten club. If she was really interested in joining, he could train alongside her more. It was always exciting to watch a new member improve with every match until they match even his skill. Perhaps with enough members, Lui could get the group into competitions with more schools, maybe even nationally with enough dedication.
"S-seriously?! Oh yeah, you can absolutely join. There's a small fee involved with getting a new suit for you, but I think I can handle that for you. We have practice normally after school every Tuesday or Thursday in the Seven Stars Academy Sorority Hall. But I'm there after school almost every day just in case."

While he considered whether to continue training with Batilde or not, he heard his phone going off in his pocket. He pulled it out to see that his sister Sumi was calling him. He excused himself from the girl's presence and took the call beside the tree, still within earshot of Batilde.

"Sumi? What's going on?"

"Where are you, Lui?! I thought you said you were training, but you're not at the Sorority Hall. Where are you really?"

"I'm training elsewhere. Do you need something?"

"Yeah. I've got a shot of running for student council! I need you to run by the crafts shop and grab me a few materials. I'll be heading home in the meantime. See you later."

*sigh* "Alright, see you in a bit."

He flipped his phone shut and shrugged towards Batilde.

"Sorry, Batilde. Sis needs me to help get some stuff to make campaign posters or something. Knowing her, I'll probably working all day with her. Want to walk back?"

As Lui put his sword and scabbard back at his side, he reached into his bag and pulled out a scrap of paper. He quickly scrawled his phone number on it and hand it off to Batilde.

"For you, Mademoiselle. I can text you my address later. Hope it works out between you and your friend."

Batilde smiled happily when she saw his reaction to her interest in the club. In a way, it was like watching a kid getting his first pet. Quite adorable, in a way, really. He must've been really passionate about his club to get such a bright and colorful reaction. "Mhm!" She replied with an energetic nod before almost jumping up where she stood when Lui's phone went off.  Of course, she didn't mind if Lui had to excuse himself at all, and just patiently waited for the conversation to end. "Awww... And just when things were getting fun too. Your sister has some really bad timing." She said, sounding a bit dissapointed, yet accepting. "I can get home on my own, yeah. Thanks for the help with everything, Lui." She gave him a sweet smile as she accepted his phone number.... when he called her Mademoiselle though, she blushed faintly. "T-Thanks, Lui... I hope so too..." He really was a sweet guy. And so, the two split up for now, only for the duo to meet up later that night... under less stellar circumstances.
