  1. Minako looked at the stinger and it's gland and thought nothing of it as she retrieved the spear from her back. Rubbing the gland to her weapon she could see the temporary status effect being added in the form of more damage. Nice. It would help a lot since the quest was already a challenge to do, she needed all the help she could get. Minako nodded. "Yeah. It's a pain sometimes." She said before explaining more. "In order for it to work with my capture software I had to jury rig a couple of HDMI splices and with enough zip ties to get it to work. I couldn't see the chat while I was in game though, but I had people who had dev kits who were working a system mod that let me do that. Sword Art was supposed to be just the tip of the iceberg. But it ended up like this." She said, a bit melancholy. Minako shook her head. "No, I wasn't slapped a friend of mine was. I told her about the dragon attack and she confronted the guy. Apparently, he had a girlfriend who was just a stupid as he was, and she slapped him." Minako said, throwing her hands into the air dramatically. "I did throw some punch on her though and was ready to throw hands. I have never hated someone that much in my life." She admitted before trying to cool down. +1 damage (base increased to 6 from 5) @Mari
  2. Minako quickly fumbled back through the menu as she retrieved the antidote again, quickly uncorked it, and downed it. She tossed the bottle aside and as it shattered into blue crystals she shrugged. "I mean, I can't blame you. I don't think I could call someone friend and be a teacher at the same time. What if I said something that hurt our friendship? What would I focus on bettering them or friendship? It's too much." Minako said, thinking about the situation. "I used to be a streamer. But, maybe I still am?" Minako said turning and walking backwards to face Mari as they spoke. "I turned on my equipment before I dove in, so maybe I've been streaming this whole time?" Minako said, chuckling. "But, I really doubt it. They'd have us in hospitals or something, and remove us from the internet." Minako said, spinning back around and walking normally. "Wait. You can speak english? That's amazing!" She exclaimed. "I always wanted to learn, expand my language horizons a bit, but it's all just so hard." She said, almost defeated. Minako's tone changed. "Yeah the Gala was a lot of fun. Especially if some dingy broad and her idiot lover think that they can walk all over everyone just because they have some dingy dragons." Minako said through almost clenched teeth. "God, I hate people like that." She said, rubbing the bridge of her nose with her free hand. "Like, who just slaps someone because they didn't like what they said? You just leave! Ugh!" Minako said, not realizing that she had begun ranting. @Mari
  3. Minako nodded as Mari explained everything, placing a hand on her chin. "I personally think that teaching is a very respectable profession and I'm glad that you're making a bunch of new friends." Minako said nodding her head once. "Fortunately, I don't think I want a teacher. Just, someone to hang out with and kill bad things with. Then go out for," She paused and thought for a moment. "I dunno, whatever it is that friends go out and do." She said waving a hand around. Her mind snapped back to attention as Mari mentioned the actual quest itself. "Oh right!" She said, fumbling through the drop down menus and retrieving the antidote. She showed the small vial of herbal medicine to Mari before adding it back to her inventory. "Yep, got it. I've also got a few potions that I've managed to scrounge up." She said, double checking her inventory. Minako tugged on her armor a bit and adjusted her spear before heading off into the direction of the quest marker. "A teacher huh? Were you that before the game, or something else?" Minako asked. @Mari
  4. Minako made her way out to meet up with Mari. She had met the woman once before at the gala, and the pair had quickly hit it off. She had posted saying that she needed help for a quest as she was quite underleveled for it, and who else but Mari decided to help her. Stepping out of the safe zone, Minako changed out into her armor. She kept the school girl uniform on when she didn't need to be in combat as she was still trying to get used to how it weighed against her body. Marching across a bit of tall grass, Minako could see a familiar face out in the distance. At first she didn't recognize her, not without the fancy clothes at least. "Hey! Mari!" Minako said calling out her name before breaking into a light jog to close the distance. The armor was heavy, but every day it seemed to be getting lighter and lighter. After reaching Mari, Minako gave a small wave. Minako had already taken a look at the quest beforehand and gotten the specifics from a few other people who had completed it. The monsters could possibly chunk Minako down, but she had a small stash of potions still along with the antidote she received from the quest giver. And with Mari by her side, nothing could possibly go wrong. Minako wrapped her hands behind her head as she crossed her legs in a standing fashion. "How you been?" She asked curious as to what her friend had been up to. Jevi had gone dark, possibly dealing with guild stuff and Quinn, another person she had met at the gala, had disappeared entirely without even so much as saying a word to her. @Mari STATS
  5. Minako chuckled. "It's Minako. But you were close. You're Quinn, yeah?" Minako said, trying to recall the name. Minako was actually pretty good at memorizing names, she knew most of her staff by their usernames and their real names back when she streamed. Minako nodded in agreement and understanding to Quinn's answer. The view over the valley was very nice. Minako flinched in her spot as Quinn flinched as well. The NPC was a human female offering a quest. Minako opened the quest details and poured over its contents. It seemed to be a search and rescue sort of mission. Find the lost child, and bring him home. Minako rubbed the back of her neck before standing from her seat and swapping gear. Now in her Wyrm's Calling armor, she was ready to accept the quest. She looked over at Quinn who looked mostly hesitant. "I'm going." Minako said. "I can't leave that child to whatever fate he's been given. Even if he is just an NPC." Minako said, determined to make a change. "If you wanna come too, I'll protect you." She said, offering to be the role of protector. @Quinn Stats Level: 6 [0] Minako: 120/120 HP | 12/12 EN | 5 DMG | 18 MIT | 0 ACC | 0 EVA | Recovery: 2| Burn: 1| Blight: 1. | Heavy Momentum: 2 Battle Inventory: (5) Healing Potions [Post Action to use; Heals 50HP on use]
  6. Minako noded. "I come out here every so often to train a bit with my spear." She said, propping the weapon on the bench beside her. "I need to get stronger so I can help save the people who are trapped in here." She said, sounding determined. Again her gaze drifted over the sea of rolling grass and endless sky. She wondered how one could get there, if everything was explorable in this game, which it was, how was one supposed to get down below without the proper rock climbing equipment or skills needed to scale the small cliff. And on another note, was fall damage even a thing? Could they just, jump down there and explore. But then even if they survived, how would they get back up? Minako scratched at her temple. "Yeah, wish I could get there too without a hassle." She smiled. "But hey, what brings you out here?" Minako asked curiously. @Quinn

    [OP - F22] Star-Crossed Gala

    "Yes." Minako chuckled in her mind as Jevi walked over to Vigilon. Jevi was strong, commanding, and powerful. Even a brat such as that buffoon would see that much. She manhandled the guy, gave him a stern talking too, and marched back over to the group. Minako tilted her head in response to the butlers answer. It was a bit confusing as to why she wanted to blend in, let alone blend in as an NPC. But those thoughts went away when she asked if they single. Minako's face flushed with a hint of red. "Yes. But we're taking turns matching us up to cute boys our age as they come in. I'm next in line." She said, again adding on the last bit a bit too fast. Then another woman approached Vigilon before making her way to the group. She then turned Jevi around surprising both Jevi and Minako, and slapped her across the face before spouting some nonsense and turning around. Did that just happen. Her boyfriends dragon attacks her, Mari, and several other people. Causes a scene at a fancy party. And when called out on his idiocy, she defends that and hits her friend? Oh, hell no. Jevi followed, and retorted but Minako was already red in the face from anger. She took in a deep breath through her nostrils. "Excuse me a moment, will you?" She said to the two women beside her. She marched her way over to the woman, grabbing a cup of punch from off a table as she stepped by. "Hi excuse me. A moment of your time?" Minako said, forcing herself to be in front of the red haired woman, Jevi and the assaulter. She quickly tossed the cup of strawberry punch at the woman. "Now listen here, [censored]!" Minako screamed out. "I have no idea, who the hell you think you are but let me give you a life lesson, right now." She said, jabbing a small finger into the chest of the woman. "From what I can see, that idiot has two pets. You and that dragon. And from what I can tell, the dragon is far more trained than the dog." Miako spat, ready to throw down in the middle of this party. No one [censored] with her friends. @Jevi @Krysta @Zajcica @NIGHT @Azhoda

    Minako crossed her arms. "I didn't kidnap her. She looked lonely." She said, defending herself. "If anything I liberated her from boredom." Minako said, teasing her much taller friend. YUki then introduced herself to the pair. "Yuki is such a cute name!" Minako said exclaimed. "I love the snow!" Minako said as in her mind she thought of the future winter events. "The fourth floor is completely covered in it, and it's a lot of fun. If you ignore the yeti thing that's there." Minako said, placing a finger on her chin in thought. But much like her evening and mission to eat as many fake digital chocolates she could, Vigilon had gone and ruined her concentration as well. With a loud cry, and an impressive display of maneuverability, or just dumb luck, managed to avoid falling into the large puddle that he had slipped in. Minako covered her mouth and looked away and let out a loud chuckling noise, as she leaned in to whisper to Jevi. "He had his dragon familiar attack me, and my new friends over there." Minako said pointing towards Mari, Quinn, and the other blonde woman. "It was very graphic and traumatic. It made poor Quinn have a panic attack." Minako said, flashing Jevi a pair of sad eyes. But soon after the display of extreme ineptitude of being able to stand upright by Vigilon in the middle of the event room, a waiter appeared and offered a tray of treats. From the green crystal hovering above the player, Minako could clearly see that it wasn't an NPC butler at the least. Minako took a small piece of fruit from the plate. "This will do for me. And a question perchance." Minako said, looking at the slightly smaller player. "What's a player doing butlering at an event, that already has butlers?" She inquired, noting the butler from earlier that had served herself and Mari. @Jevi @Zajcica @NIGHT
  9. Minako practiced in the open fields of the second floor. Her new lance was a bit heftier than her starting weapon, but she was getting the hang of its weight and its movement. She still swung it clumsily, but at it was leagues better than what she had previously. After a brief workout, Minako wiped the sweat from her brow as she swapped from her armor back into her normal attire. She attached the lance to her back, and using video game logic it stayed there. And with that workout out of the way she made her way back towards the main settlement. To her right she did notice a group of children playing in a open yard, most likely a school of some kind. And just outside the gate there seemed to be a view spot, a kind of destination spot for good screenshots or date spots. If she recalled correctly, it showed the majority of a great valley covered in tall grass that moved along with the wind to give the valley the illusion of a green ocean with a matter of who knows what that laid in secret beneath its waves. Minako approached, wanting to take in the scenery for a small while. "This is an amazing few, don't you think..." A voice asked the air, or was it directed at Minako? As she got closer she could see a familiar bundle of hair. Minako leaned against the bench gently, trying not to disturb the woman. Minako too looked out into the distance. "Yeah, it is kind of nice isn't it?" Minako asked back to the girl. She recognized the woman from the event not too long ago. She had a small forae with herself and Mari. Minako chuckled lightly. "I didn't scare to badly I hope?" Minako asked as she moved to the front of the bench, taking a seat. @Quinn
  10. Link to Quest Minako was awake before the sun rose again. Her body much more used to waking up on its own. Years of streaming and playing late into the day had conditioned her like this. She had fans after all, and she wasn't about to disappoint them. Speaking of which, she had someone to meet with today anyhow. She made plans with Jevi to continue the quest line for beginner quests. The arranged time was for seven, but it was five currently. Minako could leave now and reach the place by five thirty, but then Jevi wouldn't be there for several hours. Minako yawned, the thinking putting her back to sleep. But she pushed through her tiredness and crawled out of bed. Twenty-five minutes before seven, and Minako was already waiting for Jevi to arrive. Minako had already gone inside the blacksmithy and skipped his dialogue. She had delivered his package and received yet another chore from the man. They had to go out and kill a few boars and get some tusks. Minako realized that materials could be found in a plethora of ways. By just searching for them, or by having them drop from monsters. Seven came and Minako could see the familiar hair of her friend over the small crowd of people. Minako stood from her spot and waved her over. "Jevi! Over here!" Minako said, her smile beaming. When Jevi arrived, Minako filled her in on the quest details and began to stroll to where the quest was taking them.

    [F1-PP] The Second, with Jevi

    Minako let out another defeated sigh as her body folded in half in defeat. Her health was already full, as was her energy. But her morale was pretty low, and she as sure it wouldn't recover in time. Minako thought about it. They could go back, Jevi making sure the boars wouldn't overwhelm her and Minako would try her best to get a hang of the combat again. And then pray for the drops to happen quickly. Or They could convince in a few days and Minako could have some better gear, and maybe a few luck boosting items. And then they could blast through the quest like it was nothing. Minako had already gained a few experience points from the boars she had killed, and was only needing to rest to cash in the level. She sighed again as she straightened herself out. "We'll reconvene in a few days. I know I have to do all the work, but I wanna grab a few items beforehand and try this again." Minako said, looking determined, and tired. ~~Thread Rewards~~ Minako: +1SP page compilation 200 Col @Jevi +1SP page compilation 200Col

    [OP - F22] Star-Crossed Gala

    Minako watched as yet another cute girl had walked into the gala, followed by another silver haired man. This entire event was a bust. This wasn't the kind of place a single man would go to in the hopes of mingling. Minako had fully given up. There were no cute boys coming to this event, and the last few people trickling in were the last straw. Minako huffed again before excusing herself for a moment from Jevi. "I'll be right back I swear." She said before scooting away a few inches. "I'm just going to go introduce myself to some people." She said, now darting away. She ran up to the woman in pink, ignoring the elderly gentlemen entirely. "Hi!" Minako said, giving a polite bow. "I'm Minako. Welcome to the gala, event, thing." She said, not quite sure what it was to begin with. Minako rubbed the back of her neck nervously. "I notice that you don't have a man attached to your arm, so I take it that you're single. That's perfect actually." Minako exclaimed. "Over here is where all the single ladies are hanging out at, making sure that any cute boy is immediately matched up with a girl. I'm next in line." Minako said, quickly blurting out the last bit before leading the woman over to Jevi. "Jevi, this is-" Minako thought for a moment. "Oh jeez, I didn't catch your name. You're?" She asked the girl. @Jevi @Zajcica

    [F1-PP] The Second, with Jevi

    Minako nodded as Jevi's words rang as loudly as her plate armor did. Somehow, Jevi inspired Minako to do better, and to stop blaming herself for everyone's problems. She was right after all. This game was marketed as a dream come true. How was she supposed to know that it would end up like this. And if Jevi was able to understand, perhaps other people were able to understand too. There would always be the odd man out, someone who blamed her for her problems. But then again, there were always people who blamed other people for their problems. Walking into the blacksmiths shop a multitude of errors appeared on her hud. Looking over the quest details again Minako pulled at her hair. She stormed outside of the shop. "Jevi. This quest, for a lack of a better term. Is bull[censored]." Minako said. She opened her inventory. "So all the time that we spent today, means that only you get to turn in the quest because you go the items. I haven't got a single one." Minako said, pouting.

    [OP - F22] Star-Crossed Gala

    Minako perked up as she heard a familiar voice. She spun around to see Jevi standing tall above her as always. "Jevi!" Minako squealed as she threw her arms around the woman. "It's been so long!" Minako said before giving one last squeeze and removing herself from the woman. She looked wonderful in her blue dress, and she even went all out on her makeup too. Minako huffed playfully as Jevi teased her about not having a man. "There's no single men at this event. Or at least all the single men have already been marked, or are much to old." Minako said waving a hand dismissivlely. "But just you wait. I'll score one of these days." Minako said playfully. Minako tapped a heel on the ground. "So, what have you been up to? Any cool adventures or anything like that?" She asked her friend. She didn't divolve that she was thinking of leaving, especially after Jevi just showed up here at the gala. "Honestly, I haven't been doing much. I've been kinda lazy. Thinking about doing a lot of things against doing a lot of things." Minako admitted. @Jevi

    [OP - F22] Star-Crossed Gala

    Minako couldn't much of anything except watch as Mari consoled Quinn on her panic attack. Minako tapped her fingers against her lap, not wanting to leave Mari alone with a crying girl while she went to leave and have fun mingling with other guests. The crying girl introduced herself as Quinn, and through her crying Minako couldn't place the odd accent. Perhaps she was italian, or french? Something a bit more north-western then what she was used to. Mari introduced herself to Quinn, and left to fetch a drink for the girl. As she returned with what seemed like a jug of juice. She gave Quinn the juice and then offered some to Minako. She shook her head. "No thank you. I'm good." Minako said, not thirsty but feeling out of place. What was a normal conversation had turned into a spectacle then immediately into a trip to the nurses office. And frankly, it was getting really awkward when Minako didn't know how to handle anything. And then yet another blonde appeared. Was this entire event just women? Where were are the cute boys her mind promised? This entire game was just a farce. Quinn at least seemed to had calmed down, which was good. Quinn then also said that she shouldn't had come, which Minako held no stance on. All Minako had to go on Quinn was that she wasn't good in crowds and had eagerly jumped into the deep end. Points to her for trying at least. But at least now she seemed to have a handle on it. Mari the friendly introduced herself to the new woman, but another random woman was the last straw for Minako. Too many chicks here getting in the way of her time to shine. Minako stood up, and gave a polite bow to the group. "Mari, I do hope we see eachother again soon. We can get better, together." She turned to face Quinn. "And you're welcome to hang out with me anytime Quinn. I'd love to get to know you better." Minako said. "I hope you have a pleasant evening." Minako said to the last woman, before making her leave to go mingle with other members of the party. Minako looked around the party, and couldn't spy a single person that wasn't already talking to someone else. Perhaps she just missed her chance already. All the good men were either taken, or stayed at home for the evening. Perhaps the event was just a bit too formal for a single man to show up. Minako pondered just leaving the event entirely, another valentine's day event that was a wash up. @Mari @Quinn @Astralin

    [OP - F22] Star-Crossed Gala

    Minako turned to see Mari cursing as she was giving the other person about their familiar. The dragon continued to blast it's cold breath everywhere striking Mari in her face. Minako rose to her feet, ready to throw down if needed. Minako glared at the boy. "Seriously. Who even brings an animal to an event like this?" Minako asked one sidedly before moving to Mari's side. After making sure Mari was okay, and seeing that she was Mari asked if everyone else was okay. Minako nodded. "Only my dress was hit a bit." Minako said looking at the end of her dress that now carried a darker pink than the rest of dress as the ice had already melted. Mari introduced herself, and Minako to another woman. Minako politely bowed her head. "It's nice to meet you." Minako said, greeting Kairi. The meeting was cut short as Minako had only just noticed that Macradon had plunged his fists into the punch bowl. Minako stared at Mac a bit perplexed as to why he was digging for more strawberries, when everyone already had their fill of them. Minako followed Mari to another table, a bit further away from the now bustling crowd of people and the idiots that dwelled within them. Mari had also picked up another girl and lead her here to the table as well. As Mari took note of the sweets on the table, Minako already had a small handful of chocolates and creams in her mouth. The girl next to her was crying. Most likely from being blasted in the face by the dragon familiar. Again, who would bring such an untrained animal to a gala like this? Minako looked back and glared at the man. Looking back though the girl looked like she was undergoing a panic attack of sorts. Her mom would normally so things like this after fighting with her dad. It happened a lot. But to see that a girl that looked as young as she was, hell maybe even younger. It was kind of tragic. Fortunately Mari knew how to take care of things, or at least she seemed to know how to. @Mari @Quinn
  17. Minako

    [OP - F22] Star-Crossed Gala

    Minako stared at the pair of people making idle conversation. She wanted to be included in her new friends conversation, but couldn't decide on when to chime in with her own bits. Hearing that Mari played an instrument was rather surprising, and yet it wasn't. Mari carried that sort of, educated feel to herself. She carried it in her stride, the way she spoke and acted. Frankly, Mari was actually really cool of an adult. Minako always assumed that adults who played this game were really childish, kind of like Macradon. Memeing about and making jokes trying to wear a brave face, or save face, or just cheer someone up. Mari was different, and that was good. Minako chuckled as Mari complained about her pockets, or lack thereof and had reached over and had gone to grab a piece of white chocolate to mindlessly snack on. Minako let out a loud 'eek' as a dragon had found itself perched around the platter of sweets. Minako pulled her hand back, and Mari had already sprung into action scolding the dragon, its owner, and quickly removed the dragon from the table and onto the floor. Minako was about to grab the dragon herself in a rage to protect her and Mari's sweets, but Mari had fortunately intervene saving Minako the trouble. Macardon had apologized as well for not remembering her, which was completely understandable. She could only imagine what business was for arms and armor in this day and age. Then a curious thought poured into Minako's mind. "If it's so busy, maybe you could teach me a thing or to about a George, or whatever it's called. Could help you with all those orders you get." Minako said, stuffing a white chocolate piece into her mouth. In reference to her understanding the joke that Mac had made it was somewhat creepy and easy for her. In her most recent stream logs he analytics showed a great increased in older, elderly gentlemen. Which was good because they donated a lot of money, but also bad because they were kind of pervy at times. But she had a good staff team to ban people who took it to far. Minako's cheeks turned a shade of pink that would match her attire as Mari blurted out that Minako was looking for love. But the blush quickly faded to normalcy as Mari began to explain her feelings towards Baldur. She didn't know the two that well, but they both seemed to be good at getting Minako out of an awkward spot. Maybe they had more in common. "Aw Mari don't change!" Minako protested and mar made mention of changing. "You're the prettiest woman at this gala." Minako said, before watching Macradon grab a fistful of strawberries and adding them to his inventory. "Wait.." Minako said, trying to reach out to them only to be cut off by Mari who joined in with the festivities of shoving the red seeded berries into her own inventory before shoving a few her way. Minako stared blankly for a moment before she happily took the strawberries and added them to her own inventory. "This is the silliest thing I've done. But I love it!" Minako cried out. Minako even seemed to ignore the small dragon blowing ice everywhere like a tantrum from how much fun she was having. @Mari @Macradon @Vigilon

    [OP - F22] Star-Crossed Gala

    Minako shrunk a bit in her chair as Mari almost scolded her for wanting her problems to be solved by some handsome man coming in to sweep her off her feet. But, She meant well, calling her beautiful and what not. But, finding a cute boyfriend was all she really wanted. At least, that's what she thought. But if that was the case, why was she also fighting and trying to be better? Her lips curled into a thoughtful position as she bit her lower lip. And as she was about to ask a question to Mari they were interrupted. An older gentleman approached, and Minako almost physically back backed away as he grabbed a chair and took it without asking. He immediately started talking and Minako already disliked the man. He ended up spouting some old world self help bull, along with trying to force his ideals about cursing upon the two women. Before Minako could gather her words, Mari had gotten up from her seat and for a split second Minako thought that Mari would leave. But instead she handed her the platter of food asking her to hold it. "Oh, sure." Minako said, curious as to what Mari was doing next. Minako's fasce entered a blank expression as the chair scooted, awfully loudly, across the floor. Mari hadn't taken the platter back, so Minako held onto it. She nearly dropped it as Macradon made his entrance. That was what he was like outside of his shop? Minako had met the man in a business sense a little while ago to get armor and a weapon made. But this behavior. It was kind of funny, even the old meme. Minako snickered a bit as she brought attention back to the table. Minako cleared her throat before she spoke. "I'm sorry Mister Commando." Minako held back a snicker from the man's name, thinking that he wasn't wearing any underwear. "But respectively, I would like to say whatever the [censored] I want." She said giving a nod. And with that she turned her attention to Mari and Macradon. Minako panicede slightly as she quickly tossed the tray onto the table, spilling some of the food as well, as she took Macradon's hand. "I'm Minako. We've met before in your shop once. But I would be surprised if you remembered me." Minako said. "I got the Dinkster reference. Very funny." Minako said, smiling. @Mari @Macradon @Commando

    [F1-PP] The Second, with Jevi

    Minako cheered as the boar exploded into shard of tiny blue data. However, Jevi tumbling over was, albeit, a tad bit funny. Before Minako could ask if it had dropped what it was that they were looking for Jevi had cheered out. Minako squealed with delight, rushing over to her fallen friend and encased her in an excited hug, bouncing somewhat. After collecting herself, Minako pulled herself away from Jevi and assisted her back into standing. "Sorry." She said, blushing somewhat. "I know we've only known each other for a few hours, but it feels like I've known you for years. Like, we've been pen pals or something like that." Minako admitted before shaking her head. "But that's just silly, I know." She said, kicking a bit of the dirt and grass at her feet. "I guess we go back to mister Tealeaf the blacksmith now huh?" Minako said, aiming to end this quest. As the pair walked back to the blacksmithy, Minako attempted to make small talk. "Did you really mean what you said earlier Jevi? That people who blame me for this whole thing can go and-" Minako looked back and forth a moment, as if to see if any law enforcement were present to witness her soon to be heinous crime. "[censored] themselves?" Minako said in a cupped whisper to the woman. Minako let out a chuckle that erupted into a small giggle fit. "I never cursed so much before. This was fun Jevi." Minako said thankfully.

    [OP - F22] Star-Crossed Gala

    Minako held back a snicker as Mari coughed up whatever drink she had back into its glass. Minako nodded to Mari. "Yeah I think so. At least, I am. Well, getting better at it anyway. It beats being cooped up inside a room all day." Minako said, her head turning to watch the entrance alongside Mari. Minako spoke again. "I really have like, one friend. And I don't think she'll show up. She's much to gruff for all this fancy stuff. Frankly, I don't even know why I'm even here." Minako admitted, turning her attention to the laced tablecloth in front of her. "I mean, I came here with the hopes that some handsome suitor will sweep me off my feet and get me away from this world. Help me forget about all my problems. You know?" She said, before catching herself blushing as she admitted to what most likely sounded like a child's problem. As Mari admitted that she wasn't looking for love, that somewhat raised Minako's spirits. Just maybe she still had her chance at love after all. But as Mari looked at her and shared what seemed like a warm smile, she felt something twinge inside her. Her words echoed in her mind. "I wanna push onwards and do better, is all." Hadn't Jevi told her the same thing once? Something like that at least. She couldn't remember the exact words, but she did know that a handful of expletives were used. Minako was an influencer, damn near a public figure and she had told so, so many people to buy this game. And how many were stuck in this game now, how many had died. All of them were her fault. If she hadn't advertised the game, then all those people wouldn't be dying here. She shook her head clear of those thoughts as she played with a strand of hair that danced on the side of her face. Minako smiled back at Mari. "I want to do that too." Minako let the words hang in the air for a few moments before speaking again. "So, what have you been up to?" Minako asked. "Any cool adventures or stories or something of the like?" She asked, just wanting to exchange the, what she thought was pleasant, conversation. @Mari

    Minako thought for a second before catching the joke and chuckling. She didn't want to intrude, but at the same time she wanted to talk to the woman. Not to console her to anything like that, but just to keep her company. Perhaps it was selfish of her, wanting to absolve this feeling that she had by exploiting this stranger. To be honest, Minako really enjoyed the strangers dress. The vibrant orange almost matched her hair and brought out the color of her eyes fairly well. To say the woman wasn't a looker would be a lie. Which also meant that she was competition in the end. But Minako thought a bit more. She was waiting for someone, perhaps her boyfriend. But then she noticed the orange crystal dancing slightly above her head. She was a criminal in some regard, be it murder or just petty theft. She didn't seem to be carrying weapons on her person, least nothing Minako could make out immediately. And with Jomei nearby she really doubted that she'd be in any real danger. "I didn't, sorry." Minako said, responding to the woman's name. "Minako." She said, fighting the urge to say the rest of her streamer ensemble. This was a formal event and she'd be damned if she made a fool of herself in front of these people. She scooted the chair out and sat down across from @Mari. Minako scooted back into the table, and politely waved the waiter away. "I don't really know. You were just alone, and so was I. So I figured I'd make the first move and say hi." Minako said, answering. Her tongue filled her cheek as she tried to figure out what to say next. What was it that people said in small talk? She was used to speaking to an audience, but not just a single person. Which probably would explain why she was currently single. "So, are you waiting on your boyfriend, or just another one of the girls?" Minako asked, trying her best to be less awkward than what she already was being.

    [OP - F22] Star-Crossed Gala

    Minako approached the tent starstruck, the lights gleaming in her eyes as she excitedly took in the surroundings. She figured this to be a second valentines day event, and thus a second chance to snag the perfect man. She checked her inventory and saw that her chocolates were there. She let out a confident sigh of relief as she hiked up her dress and moved onto the main area. Several words came to Minako's mind as she entered the actual tent, most of which she wasn't allowed to say on stream. But beautiful was one, extravagant, was another, and magnificent was a better one. The lace that decorated the tables, the candles that pathed the ground, the lighting bugs dancing around the dimly lit sky. It was almost like a wedding of sorts. To which Minako got even more excited, there was nothing more romantic than a wedding. Today was her shot, her chance. She was going to make her mark, and leave with a man latched onto her arm. She stopped as she approached an elderly man and woman, casually seated near the entrance. Minako bowed to the pair and introduced herself. "Minako." She blurted out in full confidence. She rose from her formal bow and moved into the main area once more, eyeing the potential prizes, and threats. First she spotted Jomei, he was off the list as his fiance would kill her the moment she tried to move in on him. Plus Jomei was just too nice of a guy. He would never think about leaving his would be bride. That and he was surrounded by people both men and women. And as another group of women waltzed in Minako's heart sank a bit. The men crowding Jomei were okay, just not what she wanted in her ideal partner. And there were only women at this event, or taken men. Was she cursed? Was this to be her fate? A never ending cycle of hopeless events and fruitless dates until she was in her mid forties and forced to settle with some other guy that dyes his hair to keep it normal. No. It wouldn't be. She was early, well as early as she could be for late. She would bide her time, many single men will arrive. Maybe even that really cute guy from the halloween event would show up. Her cheeks flustered slightly as she went to pick a seat but something, well someone else caught her eye. She had watched a woman get up from her table, take a step towards the crowd and then sit back down. She looked, not sad but something else. Melancholy, perhaps. That was fine with Minako. One sad girl meant one less woman out there trying to steal all the good men, but she remembered herself a bit. She thought of Jevi and how she helped Minako sort through her problems. Maybe... Minako stepped over to the table with the lone woman. Hopefully, the woman wouldn't recognize her from her streaming career, let alone buy the game because she told her too. She let out a quick sigh before speaking up. "Is this seat taken? You look awfully alone." Minako said, touching the seat across from the woman. @Mari

  24. After picking herself off the ground Minako stood tall. More players were knocked aside, as more rushed in a dealt damage. He HUD noted that her new armor ability had activated granting her more damage. And she could feel it. The armor grew more heavy, giving her more momentum as she charged in. Armored feet spat dirt as she rushed in, following the example of others. She dragged the tip of her naginata through the dirt, the blade igniting after a series of sparks. The scarecrow was knocked down to one knee, giving her an open opportunity to strike. The blade of the weapon cleaved upwards, launching dirt, straw, and fire into the air. Seeing minimal damage was fine, she was weaker than the other players. But it was the effects she wanted to have activated, both the burning and the blight. Feeling proud of her attack, she leapt backwards wanting to avoid a counter attack.
