Stage 105: Another Point of View Entirely.You sit on the grass, looking at the trees, watching the leaves stir. By and large the world is colorless here, except for a very few of the very oldest trees here, and of course the sky himself. Shades of grey, tints of grey, with the occasional lustrous brown and deep green. Even the earth here is washed out, only slightly tinted brown because it is earth. It had to be brought here from somewhere else, so it is dulled, grey and soft and fragile. You look up at Amaterasu-Omikami, and she smiles down at you, her light giving the world some much needed warmth, and you bask in it. You're allowed to be here only because it's very close to the temple doorway; the others are watching over your companion in arms, a gift from them. There are others here, soft, grey, washed out people, only a very few tinted with faint color, though there are three exceptions for the moment. None of them are here, so they're not really that important. No one is bothering you, and that's more than you could have ever asked for.The soft, cool voice of your master interrupts your reverie, and you crane your head back and up to look up at her without moving your body, an act that seems to distress your master for some reason. It isn't as though your master is incapable of exactly the same thing. “Are you all right Yui?”
>>43623598You blink your eyes at the sleek black dragon with its sapphire arm, ruby right talons, and burning eyes given power by the Sun herself. Your tail curls over itself and you look into those gentle, fierce, burning eyes without fear, because your master will never hurt you the way your family did. Your name is Ryuu Yui, and this is what you see. >Yui may chose any one option+any write ins. Her fourth option will always be one of three options relating to whom she is dealing with and can be added to the other choice. Yes, aniki, I am all right. I'm worried about Akari-chan, aniki. ….uh huh. Nothing bad is happening. [+] Do you need something?

>>43623913That seems rather unlikely anon.
>>43623913Kiki-hime is a cute
>>43623942But how cute?
>>43623913>Tyler DurdenBut whos?
[X] ….uh huh. Nothing bad is happening. [X] Do you need something?“Hai, aniki,” you reply, looking at your master upside down and sideways at the same time. She kneels slowly, her clothing making soft whispery sounds as she goes almost to one knee, but not quite. The sort-of-miko outfit she is earing is slightly tinged, the cloth old, old enough, but to newly made to be anything but a hint of real clothing. Not at all like the little golden dragon's clothing. “It's very peaceful here.” It is. It's really peaceful. Kuraokami is holding his breath, and your family is staying away from you and from this part of Nippon. Despite everything being so new, the two trees that have been transplanted from the mainland have several kodama, and they are watching your master with curiosity. They would probably not be doing so if they knew what you knew, but then, they're not very bright.
Yay! For Yui POV at last. Been wondering.
>>43624019Keeping your eyes on your master, you can see the touches of regret and pain cast on your master's mask, red and white and black marked so and so. “You don't seem all right, aniki. Is something wrong?” Your master smiles and runs a hand through your hair, the touch cold and slick, making your blood cooler and yet making you feel warmer, all at the same time. “I had to talk about some things with Kiki-hime. It was....a little difficult for me. But I'm all right now.” Your master is better, it's true. The jagged marks on her mask are gone, and through they've been replaced with regretful marks, they're rounded and soft, gentle marks. Safer marks. But it isn't your place to judge either. Your master plays with your horn and you feel that deep warm thing happen inside you. Tell your master how Akari is doing. Thank your master again for protecting your lover. Ask your master what they intend to do next.[+] Allow your master to reassure you.

>>43624172Did i triple post somehow? or are you anons copying me?
Didn't Yui grew, when Ryukusa collared her?
>>43624321At least one of them just copied your write-in. For the other, try deleting it. Though I think it was someone voting the same as you
>>43624366Thanks tried deleting them to no effect so no double posting.
[X] Ask your master what they intend to do next.[X] Allow your master to reassure you.[+] Is the princess all right too?You lower your head slightly, your eyes falling to half closed as you relax under your master's touch. You can feel the heat building in your center, not just your yoni but your spiritual center. Your master's touch always reaches the deepest parts of you, and your master is always gentle, always careful. She strokes your hair slowly, her fingers sliding around the tight spirals of your pale bronze horns carefully. “It it's Ryuu Ryukusa, then it can't be helped,” you remind your master gently. Everyone else says it as an axiom. You say it to remind your master that it is true. “Is Kiki-hime all right?”Your master's smile is something you feel, a warm breeze along your exposed skin. “Yes, Kiki-hime is fine too....though, you seem to be growing closer to Kiki-hime, Yui-niji-chan. Is there something I should know about? I have no doubt Akari-niji-chan knows.” You feel your cheeks heat up as your master teases you. It isn't like that between you and the master's First Wife. First Wife is genuinely worried about you and wants to help you become free so that your master won't worry that they're coercing you when they're not. Ryuu Ryukusa doesn't since they make it possible for you to choose, but your master sometimes doesn't understand the things around them completely. The words spill out before you can contain them, your master's power destroying the ability to filter the thoughts in your mind before the come out of your mouth. “Kiki-hime is really beautiful, aniki. She's very special and I don't deserve her as a First Wife.” Um. That was troublesome.Your master's hand slides through your hair even more slowly, and you sigh softly, giving yourself over to your master's touch again. Your master needs this so badly. “Is she my first wife, Yui-niji-chan?” Your master is laughing inside, you can hear it.
>>43624520“Kiki-hime is your first wife, Kiku-sama is your second wife, Er Yin-sensei your third wife, and Akari-chan and I are your fifth wife.” You don't know exactly why, but your sure your master will understand. “Fifth wife? I thought you two were my fourth and fifth wife, Yui-niji-chan?” your master murmurs, confused, but still amused by your honesty. It's not like you can help it! “Akari-chan and I are a matched set....you said so aniki.” Your master ponders that for a moment, and her hand stops long enough that you can finally muster a question of your own through the pleasure-haze. “What will we do next, aniki?”“Rest, then rejoin our family back in Shikoku, Yui-chan,” your master murmurs softly. “Time to go back inside, niji-chan, sorry.” Your master's hand slips away and that molten, glowing feeling rises through you, invigorating and powerful and so very warm. People are starting to notice, which is only to be expected, and you don't look like you are supposed to look like to them.  Sorry for what, aniki? If it is Ryukusa-sama.... I think that's good, aniki.[+]
>>43624535> I think that's good, aniki.Yeah.
>>43624535> If it is Ryukusa-sama....
>>43624535>[x] Sorry for what, aniki?
>>43624642That's exceptionally cute.
>>43624642Nigga that's cute as hell
>>43624535>[x] If it is Ryukusa-sama....
>>43624535> Sorry for what, aniki?>[+]>What will you do, now? Can I assist?Ryukusa wanted to answer the prayers for pearls and do something with the mermaids. I think Yui would be interested in seeing this.Also, Ryukusa has never been one to rest, and Yui know this.>>43624520>“Kiki-hime is really beautiful, aniki. She's very special and I don't deserve her as a First Wife.” >Your master's hand slides through your hair even more slowly, and you sigh softly, giving yourself over to your master's touch again. Your master needs this so badly.I would have thought Ryukusa would say something to dissipate the idea that Yui isn't worthy of Kiki.
>>43624535>[X] I think that's good, aniki.>[X] Follow aniki inside
>>43624714Ryukusa is probably a little shocked that Yui considers them all married together and is wondering who the fourth wife is.I know I am.
>>43624744Since Akari and Yui are tied there is no 4th anon. You usually do ties like 1st, 2nd, 2nd, 4th or 1st, 3rd, 3rd, 4th. Presumably Yui is a fan of the latter system.
>>43624714Agree on second point. Yui was her first kiss after all.>>43624744Yui and akari are 5th but even try to find out who is 4th.
>>43624535[+] Reassure your master.>I'm more tired than I thought.
>>43624790>[+] Reassure your masterto>>43624734
>>43624535> Sorry for what, aniki?>[+] Reassure your master.
>>43624790>>43624546Ah. Well I'll add it too then.
>>43624535> Sorry for what, aniki?> Reassure your master
>>43624744Maybe Yui think Ryukusa isn't related to the number 4 any longer, given that "4" and "death" can be homophonic in Japanese, and that she's an immortal.Far fetched, I know.Maybe she thinks it's like when there is a draw in a tournament?
>>43624790Well, adding this to my vote here >>43624714Have a hug, XS
>>43624790Hope you're alright boss.
Post spooky girls for XS
>>43624998She's not very spooky anon.Nice cleavage though.

Ryukusa needs to cosplay as Crimson Viper from Street Fighter.Who could Yui cosplay as? R63 Rufus or Hakan?
>>43625412Juri, Kiki can cosplay Laura from SFV
[X] Sorry for what, aniki?[X] Reassure your master.[+] Follow, and ask if there is anything you can do to help.You don't normally ask ~why~ your master feels one way or another, since generally it's pretty obvious. But her apology is a little weird and it has a lot of different sources that converge into a single point of reference. Unfortunately it's not a reference you understand so you can't really make any judgment calls on it with your limitations. “What are you sorry for, aniki? “ you ask curiously as you rise. Your master slips her ruby taloned hand in yours though and you grip it gently as she leads you back to the temple. A tiny smile plays along your master's lips and aniki doesn't answer immediately, even though the answer is obvious to you both even if you don't entirely understand it. Your master guides you past the first doorway of the shrine room, but stops at the torii, where the colors are deep and thick and your master's family awaits. There they stop and turn to you, sliding their arms – both arms, though the left is being used very carefully – around you to hug you tightly enough that it feels like a real hug. Your master kisses you and you return the kiss, wrapping your arms around Ryukusa's neck and rising to your toe-tips to make it easier on your master. The kiss is long and slow and so sweet, so very sweet and salty with the ocean and the tears. When your master releases you from the kiss, as reluctantly as you would like to act yourself, they smile and caress your cheek slowly. “That we had to wait until here to do this. And Yui-chan....”“Yes aniki?”
>>43625653“Don't ever believe you don't deserve Kiki-hime's love. You are ours to keep and cherish, to love and hold. Not only Akari-niji-chans, but mine, and Kiki-hime's. And Kiku-chan, and even Er Yin-sensei's. They would all suffer if you were hurt, or lost.” You blush, ashamed of yourself for the justified rebuke. You try to look down but your master doesn't let you, so you look up into those burning eyes of Sun-touched sapphire. The marks along her cheeks where your master shed tears for Amaterasu-Omikami are burning and you blink your own tears into submission. “Yui-niji-chan is a precious treasure to all of us. Even Kiki-hime.” “....yes aniki,” you agree, abashed for having forgotten her admonitions yet again. Not forgetting, honestly, just....but you are worthy according to your master, otherwise you wouldn't be here, with the rest of your family. This is your family and that thought makes you smile, your arms sliding more tightly about your Master's neck so you can kiss them this time. “Ecchi oni.” That would the the golden dragon, but you ignore the comment for now, and for forever. She cares about you too; there wasn't any actual dislike or even envy in the mild comment. Your master plays with your tail, her hand sliding to your back and her left hand carefully, so very carefully stroking your hair. You squirm and then giggle, breaking the kiss. “Ah, gomen, gomen,” your master apologizes, realizing she's tickled you again but smiling anyways.
>>43625676And just like that, it's all better, all is forgiven, and there's nothing bad in this world of yours. “Akari-chan is well....she's healing. She can probably wake up any time now,” you tell your master as you enter the actual shrine. The weight of reality slides over you and holds you close as you enter the shrine, the world coming into bright, colorful, sharp focus at last. “Inau-san is no longer giving her aconite.” You walk over to where the Kiku-dragon kneels next to your lover, and she glances at you. You smile, both for her and for the delicate, powerful jade dragon that lies in blankets and surrounded by incense and candles. The gold dragon looks up at your master. “We will be performing a noon ceremony, prayers and offerings for Ryujin Owatatsumi.” you rest your hand on Akari's arm and look at the lovely, slender golden dragon with her blazing fiery nimbus and her eyes of liquid gold. “I would need Inau-kun and one other, but not hime-chan. It's a simple ceremony, but two miko would help balance the ritual.”“May I help, aniki?” Your master glances at you, then to Kiku, seeing her approval. Kiku-dragon shrugs mildly, and your master nods to you. “Thank you, aniki, Kiku-san. Just tell me what you need.” You hope that it will help your master in her new endeavors, because you can see a lot of darkness on the horizon. Not the one in the world, but the one in your mind, the real one.
>>43625701Your master leaves you with Kiku-dragon and your lover, and Kiku-dragon explains what she would like you to do, which is basically be her taiko drummer. It's work you've done before, many times, and you enjoy it. She asks you what sets you know, and you tell her all of them. You'd like to surprise her, but she's old and shining, her pearl thick and heavy with her life. With you, Kiku-dragon, and the Hunter, that leaves your master, the Death-Fox, and the hunter to watch over Akari and First Wife.  This is all right; you can help with the ceremony. You want to make sure both your lover and First Wife are going to be okay with this.

[X] This is all right; you can help with the ceremony.[+] Tell the Kiku-dragon that your master is a little unwell.The Death-Fox and your master are capable of dealing with anything and anyone that might show up to harm either the First Wife or your beloved Akari-chan, and it will probably do both your master and Akari good to sleep together in the same bed. If you dared suggest it. You don't, so you turn to Kiku-dragon. “Aniki isn't feeling very good, Kiku-san. Do you think you could help.” The Kiku-dragon turns those molten gold eyes upon your master who is sitting cross legged and listening to the Hunter and the First Wife by turns, while the death-Fox listens intently, before jumping to her feet and loudly proclaiming that she should have known all along that the hunter was Ainu and that it was going to make a terrible mess of things and that there was something and more things, and a few more things and the Death-Fox is making your head spin, really. Kiku-dragon turns her attention back to you, and speaks softly. “Baka Yui. It's because she's feeling that she isn't feeling good. But it is better this way, because she needs to feel those things and to trust we will allow her to feel those things.” You frown a little, not quite grasping what the burning dragon is talking about. There is a soft sigh, halfway a hiss, and she settles down. “Aniki told my sister things she's kept hidden, and they're things that distress her. Not bad things, only things that make her who she is. Things you and I understand about her, that the others didn't necessarily understand. Her death-nature.”You blink at the priestess.  But that's stupid, Kiku. ….does she not understand the difference between necessity and nature? Do you think maybe I could help her?[+] Ask if you are allowed to pray to your master here or not.

Due to the idiot QM literally passing out in her chair, we enter a brief haitus for the weekened, which I profusely apologize for. The lack of sleep over the past days has caught up with me, kicked my derriere, and proclaimed itself winner. We continue on Monday the 16th, 9:30 am PST.Thank you all for reading and playing, and we will continue from here with the hyperactive loli-dragon and the soft oni with abs of steel agreeing that Ryukusa is a dummy.

>>43629628Maybe it's a crooked blade anon.Also why bumpu?
>>43629681No seriously, look at it. The hilt and beginning of the blade is normal, but then the front edge becomes the shinogi and vice versa so it's held edge-up while the hilt is edge-forward.
>>43629870Indeed that's probably what's going on, but if you think of it as a word that's literally bent to the left it kinda works too.
