Stage 165: The Eyes of a God.There are many things which can instill fear in a person.There is the first time you hunt for boar or bear. There is the first time you swim with a shark or encounter a crocodile. There is your first battle with other spirit-children – that was truly a terrifying experience for a hunter of game. There is even the time when you help make costumes and sets for a play that could offend a God, the Kami who is not only the ruler of all rain and snow, but is a dragon.But nothing compares to the flutter of your heart and the shiver deep in your soul every time you come face to face with the Kamuy from Beyond the Horizon, the Demon Kamuy that Chases The Gods, Poronitne Kamuy's living vessel, Ryuu Ryukusa.You are Tokei Isusangi, daughter of the Huntress Hasinaw-uk-kamuy, and you have tickets to a play to deliver.The real trouble with Ryukusa isn't so much a problem with Ryukusa, but with the people around Ryukusa. They are all lovely people, good people, if a little strange at times due to their natures, but mostly, they are beautiful people. Not merely physically, but in their nature and their ways. They are exemplars of their natures, and they seem even more so when they serve or are close to Ryukusa. Er yin (you do not believe she has any other names, to be honest) and Matagama Kiku wait, watching their beloved husband and master sit by herself at a table near one of the many noodle vendors that seem to spring into existence from the sidewalks of Japan when one isn't looking. You look harder and it quickly becomes apparent that she is not in fact sitting alone.Closing your eyes you concentrate for a moment, breathing calmly, and allowing your senses to open to the greater world that surrounds the world you live in. When you open your eyes, the world iss awash with colors and lights that cannot be named, only trusted to be what they are. And sure enough, there is the person she is talking to: Susano-Oh, the Kami who rules Sea and Storms, rival to Ryujin, Ryukusa's father. You reach behind you, only to remember that your sword has been broken, destroyed in battle against the Demons of Diyu, the Fox Demon from the Mirror Hell, and the Air Demon of the Millstone Hell. Kiku-chan glances at you, seeing your expression and makes several quick, controlled gestures, deliberately making them obvious enough for you to understand them.All is well, do no harm.
>>1806346It isn't easy, because the conversation that Ryukuza seems to be having is causing the God of Sea and Storms to be threatening and standoffish by turns. Still, she is Ryukusa's priestess – even if at the moment she looks more like she should be in this play, rather than attending it!>Inau-kun may only select one choice, though write ins are accepted as always. Inau's choice of “Listen to the Whispers” is an option that allows her to literally hear the voices of the kami and kamuy around her, aiding her in her decisions and informing her of their desires (which may or may not coincide with hers or those of her new clan). Be obedient to the Priestess; she surely knows what is happening. Approach the Priestess and the Sorceress, supporting Ryukusa with them. Collect your new Bow and an Arrow without drawing attention, and protect your Daimyo from here. Indicate your concern with gestures, and remain wary as you keep an eye on the Storm God.

>>1806349>[X] Approach the Priestess and the Sorceress, supporting Ryukusa with them.
>>1806349Oh now, this is interesting. I'm tempted to try our special power immediately, but I suppose there is no need in this situation.>[x] Indicate your concern with gestures, and remain wary as you keep an eye on the Storm God.
>>1806349> Indicate your concern with gestures, and remain wary as you keep an eye on the Storm God.Thanks for uploading the document, I have been slowly rereading the quest and loving all the details I had forgotten.
>>1806349>[X] Approach the Priestess and the Sorceress, supporting Ryukusa with them.Hey XS you feeling up to run? If you are not up to it please just get some rest.
Hi XS!I hope you will feel better soon. Have some nice pics>>1806349> Be obedient to the Priestess; she surely knows what is happening.We have a post to be at, and if we're asked to stay there in this manner we should stay there.
>>1806349> Collect your new Bow and an Arrow without drawing attention, and protect your Daimyo from here.Hey XS
>>1806349> Approach the Priestess and the Sorceress, supporting Ryukusa with them.It's not easy being Inau
>>1806349>[X] Approach the Priestess and the Sorceress, supporting Ryukusa with them.>>1806363That might be a reason to do so: test it out without being necessarily effected by it in a meaningful way. They may have something interesting to say at the outset here, but it may also be risky somehow with the storm gods presence. There'll be a better time, I imagine, when we really need to know something outside of whats possible.Question for XS: Is listening also an exclusive choice, or something we can do along another option?Also... hang in there!
>>1806397True enough; though I'd argue, a risk is still there, in Susano-Oh somehow noticing and taking it poorly. Unlikely given what we've seen of this encounter from Ryukusa's perspective, but nevertheless.
>>1806349Adding to my vote here >>1806384:>Do your best to pay attention to the rest of the situation. While a major Kami is more than dangerous, there are smaller dangers that might slip by if everyone is focused on the Kami.
>>1806422Susano-Oh could cause a lot of damage, but if our attention from our post diminishes others, from mortal ninja with magic to true youkai, could threaten the performance and our family.
>>1806397Exclusive, unfortunately - it takes effort and control to not be overwhelmed.
>>1806433Makes sense enough, anons are just naturally greedy. Like dragons! It's all in the spirit of good roleplay, but backfires whenever there's a PoV switch to someone not-quite-dragonette.
>>1806378You're welcome.>>1806379>>1806384>>1806397thank you. I want to give it a strong try, because otherwise I'm going to have a very long couple of months. Thank you all for bearing with me.
>>1806433Ah, I was imagining it an influenced and heightened awareness version of an otherwise decided intent. This works fine though, even if I'm unsure when opening the mystery box will seem like the best idea.
I love hearing the perspectives of other characters on Ryukusa
[X] Approach the Priestess and the Sorceress, supporting Ryukusa with them.[+] Be wary of other things; a God is distracting!Closing your Eyes to the world of the kami and their servants, you are feeling somewhat relieved that Susano-Oh, while always unpredictable and potentially violent, is being Gentle and Mysterious; it would be bad if he were to be Assertive, you think. Then again, kami, and Great Kami especially, are somewhat capricious, and the Storm God more than most. You slip from behind the counter, trusting in the others to ensure the safety of those precious to Ryukusa inside the theater, and keep an eye out for any threats to Er Yin and Kiku-chan from without. Even hidden as he is, Susano-Oh's presence is a powerful thing; you can see the waves of his presence crashing among the mortals here, and you can even feel his power against your own spirit.A sudden breeze washes through the area, and you are very, very, very glad that you are wearing pants rather than your skirts. You have to divert your thoughts away from Shoko's appreciation of you in pants, because that leads to other thoughts you shouldn't be distracted by. Kiku-chan looks up at you, the oni mask she wears small and decorative, more hat than mask. She is dressed in gorgeous clothing that could only have been put together and crafted at the hands of Ryuu Ryukusa herself, and the sight of Kiku-chan's bare belly prompts you to pinch your nose before anything bad might happen. Her bust is nicely enhanced by the leather straps....okay yes, now stopping.Kiku-chan's expression becomes suspicious but you quickly cut her off. “What is the Prince of the Sea doing here, Kiku-sama?” you ask, looking at Ryukusa, who is drinking very deeply from the wine-box she shared with Shoko-chan a little while ago. Much to your surprise and wonder later.“We don't know. But that bastard seems to be civil enough for now,” she says, a hateful glint in her eye as she stares at the empty place occupied by the Storm God.“Are you certain you should be up, Inau-sama?” asks the Silver Dragonette, inclining her head towards you but still stroking Kiku's hair softly and gently, caressing her horns to keep the Fire Dragonette at bay.
>>1806544“Yui-sama gave me permission, and I was tired of being bedridden. I am not used to inactivity, Sensei.” You sniff the air, smelling the tang of the sea as well as the people – human and not – nearby. But nothing dangerous (well, more dangerous) or threatening at the moment. “She did tell me I am not to get into close combat with anything stronger than a large cat or faster than an elephant.”Kiku-sama is looking at you with the Eyes of Fire, and you do your best to keep your thoughts pure. “You are healing, but not healed. You have the tickets for us, then?” she lets the Eyes go out and you relax some.A calm nod is the mainstay of your reply. “I was told to inform Ryukusa-sama that her seats are very near those of a certain prominent figure in the criminal underworld. I do not quite understand what it means, but I understand the implication well enough.”Er Yin smiles, laughing softly. She is striking in her Chinese dress, the darkness of it making the silver of her body stand out even more sharply. She has such a figure, it makes you envious. “How convenient for her. I suspect that was planned by Ryukusa-sama's niji-chans.”“....it is a sound plan. I hope they don't do anything foolish.” Kiku's 'they' refers to the Yakuza undoubtedly. Anything foolish Ryukusa's people have done has been in the heat of combat, and usually accidentally. Like being in close combat when you're an archer. Very foolish. Ask about their date, it's the polite thing to do as you wait. There are four seats, you might want to decide on arrangement now. Inform them that you've been asked by Kiki-hime to sit with them, though Ryukusa's orders come first. Ask if you should wait for Ryukusa to arrive to tell about security, or if you should wait for later. listen to the Whispers
>>1806547But elephants are plenty fast!>[x] Ask about their date, it's the polite thing to do as you wait.How can I let down a rare chance for potential Inau teasing?
>>1806547> Ask about their date, it's the polite thing to do as you wait.
>>1806544>Bunnygirl tavernNow that's what I call distracting.>She is dressed in gorgeous clothing that could only have been put together and crafted at the hands of Ryuu Ryukusa herself, and the sight of Kiku-chan's bare belly prompts you to pinch your nose before anything bad might happen. Her bust is nicely enhanced by the leather straps....okay yes, now stopping.Amazing.>>1806547> Ask about their date, it's the polite thing to do as you wait.
>>1806547> There are four seats, you might want to decide on arrangement now.
>>1806547> Ask about their date, it's the polite thing to do as you wait.It's funny how the single choice constraint is felt the keenest in casual dialogue like this
>>1806547>[X] listen to the Whispers
>>1806547> Ask about their date, it's the polite thing to do as you wait.Dohoho.
[X] Ask about their date, it's the polite thing to do as you wait.Waiting doesn't make you particularly nervous. You are, after all, a hunter. The proximity of all the people around you, regardless of their purity or lack thereof, makes you exceedingly nervous. The strictly regimented world of a military base, especially one with so very few women, makes social hubs in japan very difficult for you to stay in for long periods of time. It's mostly the noise they make; it drowns out anything that you could use to pinpoint a problem from.“If I may ask, did the date go well?” Er Yin's smile makes the heat rise to your cheeks; you know she is not going to actually say anything to embarrass or upset you, but that she thinks of that truth so loudly that you can imagine it is more than enough.Kiku-sama is more forthcoming and much kinder. “It was a very new thing for both my master and I; we learned some things about aniki that makes other things much more....sensible. Her friendship with Akari, why she is such a good seamstress-” Not looking. Very not looking. Okay, yes, the gold trim and the obsidian cloth are gorgeous, and they hug the priestess' smooth and delicate curves in a way that makes her diminutive body look more than feminine enough. NOT. LOOKING. “-as well as a little of her stranger predilections.”“I'm sorry?”“Ryukusa-sama's lack of concern for appearances,” Er Yin-sensei explains gently.“Ah.” Your reaction catches Kiku-sama's attention and you hesitate, but decide to try. “People like myself and Ryukusa-sama see things more clearly, but less distinctly. It is easily dismissed in Water Dragonettes, because they are so difficult with their perceptions, but appearances matter much less than....presentation?” You switch to Ainu. “The surfaces are meaningless compared to what lies within when we look upon people. It is that which allows her to judge a person by their own nature, and not that of their parents or their shape.”Kiku-chan looks interested, and then glances at Ryukusa, who is approaching in a somewhat meandering manner. You can smell the potent rice wine she has imbibed, and she must have had much more than an ordinary Dragonette could handle, if she is intoxicated. “That explains several things that we saw,” Kiku-sama murmurs.Even as she walks towards you, you see the changes in her attitude, the shifting of her body. She moves like a cat, a very powerful, very confident cat that needs only to decide upon your nature as food or toy to casually turn you into just those things. The wash of alcohol upon the wind is quickly blown away bu a fourth and final gust of wind, and you no longer feel the presence of the Storm God.
>>1806733Her priestess looks deeply concerned, smells of worry and frantic, poignant desires to ease the things she sees Ryukusa suffering from. “I'm fine, darling Kiku. I think....” She hesitates, not having noticed you yet – or at least, not having decided to become aware of you. Er Yin smiles slightly at the use of the endearment, and Kiku-sama relaxes as well. “I think I've either just been told to grow up, or been given a backhanded compliment about being a Successful Horobi rather than a Good Susano-Oh.”The reassurance does not seem to help quell the worry entirely, but there is some relief in Kiku-sama's reaction. The much harder to read silver Dragonette lays a hand on the shoulder of her Daimyo, and you bow to Ryukusa slightly, as she smiles at you. You gesture towards the desk, where Akari-sama has taken your place, waiting with her delicate, gentle smile that hides the monster beneath her skin from everyone. “Then, all is well, Ryukusa-sama?” asks the sorceress softly, Ryukusa-sama takes Kiku's hand and moves all of you towards the desk, the people parting instinctively as she approaches, sensing her power and intent deep in their subconscious. “....you know, I don't really know how to answer that question,” your Daimyo murmurs softly, looking half concerned, half bemused. She is well enough, but clearly the conversation with Susano-Oh did not go as she expected. Her smile changes, becoming purely warmth and pleasure as she approaches the black clad schoolgirl that is the Stone Dragonette Ryuu Akari. “Rainbow-chan,” she declares, which nets her a few odd looks from the people around you all.“Aniki,” is all Akari says, as she hands Ryukusa four tickets. Without missing a beat she hands you one, and you bow to her, smiling, controlling the instinctive reaction to her presence you have. You flip open the brochure, and see the note you felt that made the brochure heavier than it should have been. She will need an outside seat on the left so she might speak with Shinkai Yamada if she feels the need to. Inform Er Yin-sama silently of the request, she will be able to do this diplomatically. Wait until you are in the theater proper, and tell your Daimyo yourself to make it honest. Hand the note to Kiku-sama, who will know best what to do since she is trained in these matters. See if you can locate Shinkai Yamada yourself, and give the note to Ryukusa-sama. Listen to the Whispers
>>1806736> Listen to the Whispers
>>1806736> Hand the note to Kiku-sama, who will know best what to do since she is trained in these matters.
>>1806736>[x] Hand the note to Kiku-sama, who will know best what to do since she is trained in these matters.
>>1806736> Wait until you are in the theater proper, and tell your Daimyo yourself to make it honest.
>>1806749>>1806755We should tell her ourself.I'm not sure why they didn't tell it to Ryukusa already.I think Ryukusa wouldn't want to talk to Shinka now, though. She's here for a different purpose
>>1806736>[x] Wait until you are in the theater proper, and tell your Daimyo yourself to make it honest.They all seem fine, and I want to see Inau interact with Ryukusa from the other perspective as much as possible!
>>1806736>[X] Listen to the Whispers
I really wonder if Ryukusa will actually have the time to deal with any unsavory criminals before the play starts up. I can't imagine she'd prioritize it over Kiki.
>>1806842I think the only unsavory folk here are ours. >>1806775Fair enough. Requesting to change >>1806755 to telling ourselves.
>>1806842She would do it if she needs to.But let's not forget that Ryukusa is herself part of the "unsavory criminals" crowd. Even if a fair amount of ladies would say she's quite tasty.I'm starting to think one of the Swordswomen is going to be an human Yakuza woman. Most likely a girl in her late teens/early 20s, but XS could surprise me with an older woman.
>>1806863Ryukusa is indeed as savory as it gets.
[X] Wait until you are in the theater proper, and tell your Daimyo yourself to make it honest.It is a difficult decision to make, because while you have been given orders by your kohai – or even sensei, since she is actually teaching you to be a Ryuu Warrior – Kiku-sama is even moreso your kohai, while the orders concern your Daimyo, who is actually present. It is a demonstration of Akari's wisdom and skill that she knew that your aniki would hand you the top one, rather than give one to Er Yin or Kiku-chan first. Ryukusa lets her fingers linger in Akari's for a few seconds longer than is perhaps polite in public, and you feel light headed. You can see the slightest movements of their hands, an exchange of information, but it is not vital information. Or perhaps it is the most vital information, an affirmation of their love and joy in each other. The lightness of your head eases, and the pressure in your sinuses abates as well. You glance gratefully at the young woman your mother has asked you to assist, and she smiles, her sapphire Dragon Eye gleaming at you knowingly, which prompts you to blush.“Do you know where our seats are, Inau-kun?” she asks, her warm, soft voice gentle and yet filled with an undercurrent of immense power waiting to be unleashed upon the foolhardy or the unwary. It thrills you and frightens you alike, and you bow your head.“I do, Ryukusa-sama,” you reply, and you carefully lead the way, noticing at once how Er Yin-sama flanks Ryukusa's left and lightly grips her shoulder, while Kiku-sama holds her right hand, leaving her left free to deal with anything untoward. It gives you a shiver to even contemplate how dangerous these people are. The Yakuza are in very deep trouble.
>>1806950As you enter the theater you take a single glance. Five hunters in total, three of them very near where you are to seat Ryukusa-sama and the Elegant Ladies. They are guarding their own pack leader and his wife. You speak softly, perfectly aware that Ryukusa will hear you. “Akari-sama has asked that I have you sit on the outside left, Ryukusa-sama; I apologize, but it is possible you will want to speak to Shinkai Yamada, Chisato's immediate superior in the Yakuza. Forgive me for the impertinence.”“Oh, I think that's fine. But you'll have to sit next to me, I think Er Yin-sensei and Kiku-chan won't mind.” You blink, feeling your eyes wide and alarmed, as Er Yin-sama laughs softly, and Kiku-sama merely shrugs. “I want to hear about your own date, you know.” you feel your cheeks heat up, and you can't help the smile that slips free of your control. You are perfectly fine on the outside to allow her to be close to Er Yin-sama and Kiku-sama, you don't want to intrude. The play is more important than your presence there, you can return to your other duties, and be out of their way. Your Daimyo has spoken, you will of course obey even if it is embarrassing. Wait, no, you shouldn't, it's embarrassing, you can't really, it's ah....ahh....help. Listen to the Whispers
>I think I can manage one more reply - we will continue with Inau-kun's adventure early next week.
>>1806957> The play is more important than your presence there, you can return to your other duties, and be out of their way.Oh, Inau wouldn't dare to interrupt
>>1806957> Your Daimyo has spoken, you will of course obey even if it is embarrassing.
>>1806957>[x] Your Daimyo has spoken, you will of course obey even if it is embarrassing.
>>1806957>[x] Wait, no, you shouldn't, it's embarrassing, you can't really, it's ah....ahh....help.Cutest minion
>>1806957>[X] Your Daimyo has spoken, you will of course obey even if it is embarrassing.resisting teasing is too hard.
>>1807014Yeah Inau is probably the prime tease target in the family after Kiku
>>1807067If only teasing did not nearly kill her each time, there could be more.
>>1807074Kiku is iffy as well, since her being both Pregnant and Live Ordnance.
>>1807107The dangers of tease in this quest is so damn high!
>>1807120That's what makes the tease so sweet.
[X] Your Daimyo has spoken, you will of course obey even if it is embarrassing.“Of course, Ryukusa-sama,” you agree, helpless not to do so and knowing that it's going to be an utter and complete disaster for you to agree to this. At the best of times you're a complete wreck around woman, but between the atavistic terror of Ryukusa's sheer presence and the fact that the is an unrelenting, unmitigated, and utterly shameless flirt with those she loves. And she loves you. She loves you a lot, even if you're not one of her wives. She's made that abundantly clear.The seating is not difficult to get to, and you softly murmur to Ryukusa, who hears every word as clearly as if you had shouted it each time. “In the seat immediately to Shinkai-san's left is his main bodyguard. To his wife Mikurabe-san's right is a very good bodyguard, but she has been trained in how to fire a gun. In front of him is his least favorite bodyguard, who is very violent and not so bright. There are two others, one bear the left entranceway, but he is not one of the favored three; he is more loyal to the Oyabun. Same with the one near the exit close to the stage. They're checking for known enemies and threats.” You're not really tellign her anything she probably wouldn't realize instantly, but Akari-sama said this is how you do things, so this is how you are doing them.“Anything particularly strange about any of them?” Ryukusa-sama carefully helps Er Yin move along the aisle, guiding her more by movement than by actually directing her. The way she and her family move is terrifying in the intimacy and the grace it has. You very firmly do not think of them dancing in a festival for a great many reasons, and you gently pinch your nose. Just in case.
>>1807173“No, aniki. The usual only – gambling, violence, and internal issues, mostly, nothing overtly strange.” You look around, and take a deep scent of the surroundings, marking the weapons and gun oils, as well as the types of spirit-children around you. A number of nogitsune, undoubtedly planted by Akari-sama, whose diligence is awe inspiring. “Shinkai-san has a temper, though he can keep it in check in public.”“Thank you, Inau-kun,” she purrs at you and you flush. She makes sure that Er Yin-sama is settled and Kiku-sama is in her own seat furthest from her own (which for some reason seems to please the Fire Dragonette to no end), and then stands up and smiles at you. You start to move to your seat....and then realize she is standing between you and it. Which means you're blocking her seat. Which is taken up by one of Shinkai-san's body guards.….so....you'll....ah.You have to either move past her as she moves bast you, kick a Yakuza bodyguard out of the seat he's claimed, or run like the Wind, because it's pretty clear to you at this moment that Ryukusa-sama is planning on moving past you, and not around you.With that wicked smile, she's going to take every advantage of your inability to escape. In a public place. With the Yakuza nearly watching you and she.You're pretty sure you're going to die of embarrassment and shame. If you don't bleed out first, of course. Mama, help me....You're pretty sure she's laughing.>To Be Continued....
I will stay a very short while for questions.Thank you for Reading and Playing.
>>1807189Thanks for running XS. Inau-kun is a treat.Make sure to take care of yourself.
>>1807189Thanks for running XS Inau is super cute, I could never really get a grip of her character to well but this has been great. Take care to rest up.
>>1807185Ryukusa is a bully
Thanks for writing XSHope your condition improves and all
Thank you all for the well wishing. i appreciate it. I'll survive this. Just takes time. >>1807205Yes, but in her defense, Inau is REALLY sensitive.
>>1807256There's nothing wrong with bullying out of love!Generally.
>>1807256That was really cute XS, thanks
>>1807256Inau's embarrassment is a liability, she's gonna have to learn how to suck it up. At least enough to function.
>>1808115You'll notice she never has these issues when she's in a fight....it's only when she has time to think that it becomes an issue.
>>1808769Sure, but it's not just about fights, being embarrassed and missing a potential threat or compromising a situation she didn't realize was as serious is not so difficult to imagine.In any case, she should strive to get over it a little better for her own sake.
