[Ahem, ahem. A boy with a shock of bleached hair clears his throat, fidgeting around in his seat in search of a comfortable position public speaking doesn't afford. Some of you might recognize him from his ill-fated adventure in the forest (and others from more ill-fated adventures in flirting) but fortunately today's message isn't half so dire.]

Hey, so, anybody wants to come, we're doin' a thing down by the stream Wednesday night. Nothin' fancy, just a few people.

We're havin' our own lantern ceremony. Like a, uhh, dedication thing for people who've passed on. People you're thinkin' about, stuff you're prayin' for. Shit like that. It's tradition back home, but everyone's gotta have stuff worth commemoratin', I figure. So! Everyone's welcome, even if it's not your custom.

[It's then the boy sighs and lifts a rectangular shape into view that was resting out of sight by his feet. It's a paper lantern, beautifully hand-painted in a koi pattern that makes the fish seem alive, as though they're swimming along the folds of the paper.]

I told him to keep it simple. [Damn it, this is not simple, Yusuke.] You don't gotta go overboard like... this.

[He looks awkward holding the thing, eyebrows pinched exasperatedly, and finally just sighs.]

What you do is take a lantern like this, write your prayer or message or whatever, then light a candle inside and float it on the water. That's how it works. The light's supposed to guide spirits--or that's how the official story goes, anyways.

If you wanna join in and take one of these puppies for a spin, that's where we'll be. That's all I got to say, so... thanks? Maybe I'll see some of you there.

(OOC: And you can find the mingle log for the 12th up here! Be there or be square. Or be square and come anyway, we don't discriminate.)

[ She listens, watching as the lantern makes an appearance, and eventually chimes in, looking faintly awed. ]

I'm not sure that I know how to make one of those, but - that one is beautiful. [ The Warden breathes, smiling. ] And... I'd like to participate, if it's really all right.

[ She has a lot of people to remember, people who have died at home and those who have vanished, seemingly forever, from Wonderland. ]
heroica: (and live without shame)

[personal profile] heroica 2017-07-12 04:36 pm (UTC)(link)
Oh! Well... in that case, I think I can manage.

[ She laughs, relieved to not have to put together the thing itself. Crafty, thy name is not Robyn Cousland. ]

I'll pass on the message. I imagine a lot of other people will be interested.

[ The whole concept is an amazing one and Haru can't help but chime in.]

It's a wonderful idea. Though, I think that is simple for Kitagawa-kun...

Well, lobster is delicious so I don't think anyone can blame him for that.

[ The thought that it's more for art and not eating never even crosses Haru's mind. That and she's too focused on lanterns and the thought process that comes with it. Maybe it is a good time to begin moving on properly.]

A night off? [ Oh Ryuji, don't ever change.] I agree. One, maybe even two.

Absolutely. [She nods, smiling, glad to be able to do something to help.] At the very least, it'll mean I meet some more people here.

Ryuj, can you die from paper cuts?

[ Ryuuuujiiii. Even Solid Snake got defeated by stupid key cards every once in a while!!]

I fail to draw a.connection between bring a Phantom Thief and being able to do arts and crafts.

[ He makes lockpicks ffs. And it's not like Akira's been completely unsuccessful; a small, if clumsily-built collection of lamps frames his knee while he sits lotus and tries valiantly to not attract another slice, nose wrinkling at Ryuji.]

You'll be sorry when I'm gone. [ >:(]

[Oh, hi, familiar boy with bleached hair. And oh, right, the lantern ceremony. It was a good idea to have that here, though he did have to wonder where those lanterns would go since Wonderland only had so much space.]

I think I'd need more than one, at this rate.

[Just saying. There are just way too many people to have to think about.]

[Minato is a master making things sad, but he'll not do it this time. Sort of. If he can help it.]

I'll be there. I have to make my own?

[If Minato had to make one, he hadn't worried. He would make one. Or bring his own, either way.]

You have people at home that you're thinking about too?

[It's always interesting, the different traditions and ceremonies for this sort of thing. The acknowledgement, the...closure, maybe. It's nice. Not really his speed, but nice all the same.]

what sorta spirits?

[Man, he knows that look real well by now. His grin widens just slightly, but he decides not to comment on it yet.]

had to ask. there's all kinds of spirits. i guess something like this attracting bad spirits or something would be pretty counterintuitive.

[He cants his head to one side and nods to himself. He can get behind Ryuji's reasoning there.]

I get not wanting to be reminded of exams. I just took my college entrance exams and I'm pretty sure I nearly died.

[Not over dramatic or anything.

Another nod. He can't blame anyone for not being able to tell. The glowing stripes kind of detract from any other features that might give it away.]


I'm from Tokyo. My name's Kashima Naoki.
