[It was far less noticeable this time, but anyone observant might have noticed that Asuka wasn't out last night patrolling for Shadows, nor around today enjoying her lack of school. That would be because in the last 24 hours, she went home for several weeks.]


[Which is leading to a video, apparently completely unintentional, of the girl curled up on a sidewalk out in the middle of the city. It's not the Dark Hour yet, but the streets are pretty deserted anyway, the few natives passing by ignoring the girl in a strange, skintight outfit, even if she seemed vaguely familiar.]

[The camera rolls for close to a minute on her unmoving, but obviously breathing form, before suddenly cutting to a a huge, confusingly cut-together mess of memories, or possibly memories of memories, all pouring out at once.]

[Asuka says nothing and doesn't move before the video ends.]

[Asuka hasn't been around on the network for a little while, but she appears to be making up for that with volume right now.]

So, as I'm sure everyone noticed, Americans don't go to school in the summer. That means I've got nothing to do during the day for the next two months, and whoever gives us money probably won't.

That said... anyone besides Gilgamesh hiring?

[Action, Dark Hour]

[Asuka is standing on a rooftop near the dungeon, concentrating very hard on her Persona so she can look at it and talk to it, the fiery mounted woman standing in front of her impassively.]

Alright, Walküre, no fooling around this time. You're part of my mind or whatever, so you're going to follow my orders, verstehst du?

[Brynhildr makes no motion to indicate she understands speech.]


...good! Now let's go find someone who needs a proper fighter.

[She's back to the nightly grind.]

Edited to add now that it actually happened: Warning for violent death in comments.

A - [Action]

[It's chaos in the streets. Persona-users are getting killed, everyone in town seems on edge, and people are just plain acting stupider than normal, and it has Asuka insanely on edge. Worse, the monster that humiliated and killed her is running free at this very moment. Only one thing to do about all of this - skip school and beat the crap out of something in an abandoned lot to try and calm herself down.]



[About three poorly constructed makeshift training dummies later and Asuka's no calmer. In fact, now she's just hot, sweaty, and annoyed. She's seriously considering going out and finding people who have earned a beating and giving them one. It's training, right?]

B - [Action, night time]

[At night, Asuka's still just as frustrated and angry, but she's more serious about what she's trying to do. Axe in hand - where she got that fire axe, who knows, but there is one missing from the school - Asuka's prowling around much earlier than she should be to be getting prepared for the Dark Hour. She's also clearly looking for someone - or, hopefully, something - with intent to use that weapon of hers.]

[Suddenly! A confused redhead standing in the middle of the street.]



[Memories come back as if in a nightmare, mixing reality and...reality suddenly, causing said redhead to grab her head and drop to her knees.

In the hospital...visiting?


Which one of them was...

"Huh. That was kinda anticlimactic."




[Asuka's just going to put her head to the ground and breathe heavily for a second here. Or a few hours.]

[Audio, morning]

[An exhausted-sounding (for once) Asuka mutters over the phone.]

You know, I never really realized how much was involved with keeping an Evangelion running. The electrical power, the LCL, the mechanics, the cage...I mean, I know the requirements by heart, but...oh, dammit, you know what I mean.

Anyway, if the stupid Department of Homeland Security wants it, they can hold onto it while we're in this world I guess. It'd be overkill on Shadows anyway. At least if Angels show up here they'll have me and 02 to fight them with or something. They can't be any more incompetent than NERV, right?

I'm going back to bed and pretending this never happened. Stupid entry plug didn't even feel right...

[Accidental Video, daytime]

Eh? A gift? What's all this about...?

Something from home, huh? Well, if they're going to let me pick a-ny-thing...

[Action, the Dark Hour]

[Later that night, an enormous - taller than many of the buildings - but mostly inert Shadow appeared in the Business District! The ever-vigilant Asuka is of course one of the first to come across it...and it sheds its disguise into an equally enormous red monstrosity. ACTUALLY WORKED! YES! YES! FINALLY!

[Asuka's going to run forward and....hug the thing's foot? Really?]

Oh man, this is the best day ever. I feel like I can fight for real again now! I guess I don't have a plugsuit but if that idiot can beat an Angel in his street clothes I can...


How am I going to get up to the entry plug...? I've never done this without the cage gantry before...not while it was standing, anyway.

[Asuka will eventually be climbing a fire escape to try and get up there...this could take a while.]

[Accidental Video and Action, dorms]

[After school today, Asuka is engaging in her latest brilliant plan. Since she and Minato are obviously going out for Valentine's Day, whether she remembered to tell him or not, she should make him chocolates. That's what Japanese girls do, right? Of course, with no idea how to make chocolate or capacity to admit that, she's taking the age-old shortcut of melting chocolate bars and pouring the result into molds.]

[Asuka can be seen melting a small pile of generic Hershey's-style chocolate bars in a pot with an intense look on her face, and attempting to pour the result over the last half-dozen of the chocolates she received from V/V sitting in some kind of muffin pan. This would be going excellently if Asuka didn't burn herself and drop molten chocolate everywhere every couple of minutes.]

Gottverdammt Drecksau! I hate cooking! This is why men should do it...

[She's using a public kitchen and being extremely loud, so even without the phone recording her she's botherable.]

[personal profile] soulsborderline

[It's after school time on the day of the full moon, and Asuka is...standing behind some bushes? It's not as if she's hiding, exactly, though there is a tension in her body as if she's about to either ambush someone or run. Or both. What's strange is the uncertainty...normally Asuka is certain to do something, but right now, she's hesitating.]

[And also really obvious if someone wants to bother her.]

[Once she sees a mop of navy-blue, overly-stylish hair, though, Asuka springs out with her normal confidence.]

Hey, Minato!

((OOC: post intended for Minato Arisato. Anyone else can bother her, though. Minato's thread will probably happen chronologically last.))

[Asuka has apparently set her phone up so she can seriously give a speech. And look as military as she can manage, which to be fair isn't much when she's limited to cute casual clothes.]


Now that I'm back and settled in, I'm remembering how annoying and boring it is to just wade through crowds of Shadows in the street every night. Some of the people I worked with before left, some are still here, but either way, I'm looking for a group to work with.

First of all, for those of you who are new here, my name is Asuka Langley Soryu. I'm fourteen and a Sagittarius, but more importantly, I'm experienced fighting monsters a lot like Shadows, and also at leading small attack squads against them once. I have a Persona that specializes in heat-based and physical stabbing attacks, and I fight damn well in close quarters with an axe. My other talents and numerous and amazing, but I'll tell you about them some other time.

I'm looking for two people who can support me as a front-line attacker, with healing and analysis, or with other types of damage. More than two will just slow me down. You need to be tough, and you need to be willing to go out and fight nightly if possible - that's the only way we're ever going to make progress here.

Interested people can call me back and tell me what they can do, and maybe we can work something out.

[She leans in to switch the camera off.]

This whole professionalism thing isn't so wonder Misato could make Major when she's schlossed 16 hours a day...

[Someone is standing in the last place they ever expected to be again - Prospero's streets.]

Wh-what in the...

[She reaches into her pocket and finds, of course, a phone - just not the one she was carrying a few minutes ago.]



I was busy, dammit! Finally actually doing my job! Are you telling me this stupid place still needs saving too?



...these phones still work the same way, right?

I was trying to ignore all you assholes so I could do some serious training and study, just in case but apparently this city isn't done screwing with me yet.

Who in the hell is the creepy girl stalking me and why is she scaring off all the Shadows? I pose this question to the rest of the freaks here because hopefully someone's been smart enough to work it out, and regardless, I want some of you to help me corner the stupid bitch. She disappears whenever I look at her.

((IC signups for a log to confront Asuka's Shadow go here. Taking two or three.))

Is it just me, or has everyone been acting weird again lately?

It's not like I'm worried about it, exactly, but it's starting to freak me out a little. I've never been good with emotional openness.


S-see what I mean? Why am I talking about that? It's embarrassing. Admitting it's embarrassing is embarrassing! Something weird is happening, and I think we should check out the Dark Hour for it. If you guys want to come, I'd appreciate your help a lot. It's getting harder and harder to maintain fighting every night, and I know I can't get anywhere farther in the dungeon by myself...

[Kaiji is still new to the world of fancypants cell phone ownership and occasionally forgets he has this thing. So have a call today!]

Hey guys. So, um, I hear a lot of people making calls about lookin' for fight training. Anyone out there actually giving lessons? I figure it's in my best interests if I wanna keep living here.

I don't really have a lot of experience - Well, I mean, I know how to throw a punch right and stuff like that - but I'm willing to give something a try.


[Action 1:

Later on, Kaiji will be found at the library! He can't even remember the last time he was in one. You can tell, since he looks lost. Help him find his way?

Action 2:

Kaiji has gotten himself an illustrious career in Prospero as a pizza delivery man! If you made an order, you might find him at your door. Or you might find him zipping on town on a bicycle with some pizzas strapped to the back of it. LIVING THE DREAM.]

[Video, Lunchtime]

Okay. I'm getting a little tired of this dinky hatchet and the overpriced first aid kits the drugstores here sell. Not to mention the crappy school lunches. Does anyone want to pool resources for better weapons? I don't have time for a damn job here, and it's not like I'm going to put down roots, but I need to get resources if I'm going to keep trying to finish off these stupid night-monsters.

Hell, I'd be up for a game of blackjack or something, if you want to face a genius in a test of... know what, never mind, I have a better idea.

[Action, After School]

[This is the perfect plan, obviously, even if the area around the Golden Palace is weirdly crowded. As a wunderkind, beating the odds at a casino would be a snap. She just needed to walk in...]

[And one and one half minutes later, Asuka's shoved unceremoniously out onto the sidewalk.]

Arslochs! That's assault! And ageism! '21 and over only' my ass! You'd never get away with this in a civilized country!

[She might be in the street for a while, at least until she runs out of steam.]

((Feel free to tag either part.))

So after some investigation and looking at all the maps and textbooks in the school, I've concluded that either this place is an extremely convincing setup, or I've traveled to some alternate universe version of AD 2011 that never experienced Second Impact or any Angel attacks. And that American public high schools are still crap.

From what some of the rest of you have been saying, you're also from 'different worlds', right? Assuming you're not lying (and Occam's Razor kinda rules that out at this point), how were they different? How many different points in time have we got here, too?


I don't really care about the podunk American coastal town maybe-hologram we're stuck in here. But, those Shadows or whatever we're calling them obviously need to be dealt with. Now, as an Evangelion pilot, I obviously know all about mental projections and fighting with them, meaning I'm obviously the best Persona fighter here, at least once I get some practice in.

However, the number of Shadows that pop up every night is really tiresome, so I could use a couple of wingmen. If anyone with a Persona out here wants to exchange their support for protection from a trained warrior, speak up, and we can go take out these Shadows with proper efficiency.

...also if anyone would like to finance such a venture I could use a better axe.

[The day after her unfortunate introduction to Prospero in the middle of the Dark Hour, Asuka quite guiltlessly slept until 11 am and, nonplussed to find herself still in this weird town, set about assessing her situation and getting stock of her available resources - to say nothing of washing up after her first real hand-to-hand combat experience. Once all that's done, however, she begins on her first and most obvious asset - the phone.]




I'm in 'Prospero', in the US. I have no idea how I got here, let alone who managed to spirit me off a verdamnt aircraft carrier in the middle of the Pacific. Well, as long as I'm in Prospero, 'if this were played upon a stage, I must condemn it a most improbably fiction'.

Before any idiots ask, I'm referencing Shakespeare, okay?

Anyway, someone had better explain to me what's going on here. I have very important business in Japan, which, by the way, the fate of the world depends on, and my employers are not going to be happy about this involuntary leave here. And this is without even going into whatever the hell that trip was last night. Seriously, Analytical Psychiatry is bunk anyway.

[Finally, she brandishes her letter]

And one last thing - how and why am I enrolled in high school here?!
