'Got an order for you mutt.'

He blinked, his hands tightening around the knife in his hands. He didn't move though, only staring at the scared, tied up target. He will only move when that voice said so. When his owner commanded he would obey. Ignore the pain, ignore the hollow growling of his stomach. Just listen, then he can get a reward.

'Kill him.'

He nodded, raising his hand to strike a blow. It was not a person, it was something that needed to die. Then he could live. He could get food. He lowered ithe knife swiftly to the targets neck. He felt it go in, heard screaming. It was fine, he had done good. He took out the knife. This wasn't a person, this was fine.

There was a lot of blood. The body slumped, eyes open, mouth gaping like a fish as if trying to take in air. Then it stopped, but the blood kept leaving, the eyes staring at him, no life in them. This was fine, he was a goody boy. Better them than him. 

He heard laughter, applause, others around him talking excitedly like they just saw a show. A few approached, congratulating his owner on a the training.

He felt a hand on his head, feeling it being patted, ruffling his dirty hair. He could hear the grin in his owners words. 

'Good dog.'

He nodded, looking down, seeing himself covered in blood. Yes, he was a good dog.

Eric's eyes flew open and he scrambles to sit up from the bed. It didn't take long before he was out of his bed, more in shock, and paced his room.

He's had dreams before, even a bit of nightmares here and there. But this, felt different. In his mind he was a memory. He remebered something from his life before. That just made him feel worse.

He...he killed someone. Because someone else told him to...

Good dog...he was a dog. His stomach twisted, he felt sick. He stopped his pacing to curl up in a ball on the floor. An owner gave him commands. He killed, how many times?  That time when he became younger made so much more sense but it did not make him feel the slightest better.

His mind was whirlling as he tugged on his hair. The images of blood, of him placing the knife in that persons throat kade him whimper a bit. If this was what his memories were, he didn't want to remember.]

...Not a dog. I'm not, 'm not...

Who: Lunafreya Nox Fleuret and you!
When: Morning of August 6
Where: Raphael's Cathedral, Far Shore
What: Waking up to a field of flowers

[On the morning of August 6th, after Luna has eaten breakfast and had her morning cup of tea, she heads out behind the cathedral to tend to the ulwaat berry bushes that Nari had helped her plant before. Today, though, there is much more plant life than she expected to see. A vibrant field of blue flowers stretches out in every direction, surrounding the cathedral on all sides. Luna simply lets out a surprised gasp as she sees it, hands coming up to cover her mouth as her eyes briefly begin to well with tears. It's clear they're tears of happiness, though - sylleblossoms are her favorite flower, after all, so this is a comforting and familiar sight that tugs at her heartstrings in just the right way. Later that morning she can be found simply strolling through the field, happily tending to the plants, and sometimes even kneeling down and singing softly to them.]

[On the backdrop of an airy room with wooden walls and wide windows, a woman with long pink hair and a welcoming smile raises the hand that's not holding her phone to wave at the screen.]

Hello everyone, and welcome as well to the people who've just arrived today. For those of you who don't know me, my name is Maria Cadenzavna Eve, and Barry and I were discussing an idea a few weeks ago that I thought I'd share with you all now that this spirit activity's been stirring up the last few days.

Anyone who enjoys music, or would just like something to relax themselves with after the last few days, I'd like to invite to a karaoke night on August 7th. You don't have to think yourself good at singing - just have fun and be passionate, and make it a good night for everyone. In my world, music is something that brings people together and heals hearts, so I hope we can do the same here with something as simple as this.

I'll be posting the address of the studio below. Feel free to arrive anytime between 5PM and midnight, whatever suits you and anyone you'd like to bring. And if you have any questions, please ask them here.

If you are professionally interested in music or performance, too, please look out for me and Barry on the night. We co-run Sparkle Motion, one of the talent agencies here, and we're always looking for new performers.

Thank you, and I hope to see you there.

[With a bow of the head and another wave, Maria ends the video. A few seconds later, the address of the karaoke studio is posted beneath it.]

kokuyoyo: (Woke up with a squirrel in my bed.)
[personal profile] kokuyoyo posting in [community profile] thefarshore
From: Chikusa Kakimoto
Date: August 6


[Chikusa actually meant to make this post a while ago, but.... Well. Things happened. Whatever. He's making it now.]

This is for the benefit of what new people who have arrived and all those who ignored Kairi and Yukine's warning here, but I'll repeat it all. It's apparently necessary.

There are three ways to get blight:
1. Touch a person that is blighted.
2. Touch an ayakashi.
3. Feeling guilt.

The first two can be washed away with holy water from a shrine or temple. The last can only be cleaned up reliably if you apologize for your guilt and repent to your god. If you don't and only continue to feel guilt, it will build up.

Shinki carrying too much blight become ayakashi. This should be enough of a deterrent but it's repeatedly been shown not to be.

In the event that a shinki doesn't repent and a god doesn't want to release them, an ablution can help. However, not only is it extremely painful for both shinki and god alike, it requires three separate shinki with extremely powerful borderlines and knowledge of the ablution incantation.

I have taken part in three ablutions in the last two months. I have no faith that people will do the sensible thing. So I'm offering myself for any future ablutions since an ayakashi on the loose in the Far Shore would be annoying. I guarantee that my borderline is reliable and that it won't matter how the targeted shinki reacts.

Just repay me for having to deal with such a troublesome and annoying thing.

[personal profile] thevanguard posting in [community profile] thefarshore
Posted: August 2
From: Misaki Yata

[ Yata doesn't normally leave open messages like this, because he usually much prefers dealing with people face to face rather than messing with all this tech stuff, but unfortunately the cause for this message is pretty much the same as the last one he'd ventured on here to make. ]

So I don't know how many people knew them, but uh. Tsunayoshi Sawada - uh, Vulcan? - and Hibari Kyoya aren't here anymore, I don't think. I don't know if there's anyone who keeps track of things like that, but I figured I'd let people know, since Tsuna's temple is gone and I... haven't seen Hibari since.

[ Not that he'd put a lot of effort in keeping track of the other shinki, but he had definitely discovered the missing temple on his own and no one else had been around since. Unless the guy had gone to ground somewhere, Yata was pretty certain he'd poofed around the same time as Tsuna. ]

Blithe here taking a hiatus for July with both of my guys: Zero [personal profile] moonlitknight  and Mikoto[personal profile] lionhearrt 

Both will be falling into a sudden coma with no explanations as to what happened or why. Zero will be found asleep beneath a pomegranate tree and will be viciously guarded by Cerberus while Ichiru and Itachi have the run of his Temple. Mikoto will be found asleep slouched on a lioness at the zoo in the lion exhibit. Izumo will have the run of his temple while he's out. 

Both will be back next month in August! If you have any questions, poke me or comment below. Otherwise, see you next month!

Hi folks, Frudence here, coming off a month-long hiatus starting on the 11th. For the new folks, that includes: To prep for that, I'm dipping into my inbox and starting tags tonight/tomorrow. I'm going to send out the tags I owed before hiatus, just in case anyone wants to continue our threads. Feel free to drop them too. I just don't like assuming things and I don't have everyone on plurk either. Thanks everyone! Feel free to hit me up here too, if you want to direct my attention to something I missed.
