    [OP - F22] Star-Crossed Gala

    "S...sure," Shinji says as he watches Cordelia munching on strawberries while giggling, then he looks around as he tries to build up the courage to speak with anybody, though that ain't easy since he doesn't know where to begin and what to talk about in the first place. As he thinks about whether he should remain here or just go home, he feels his hunger taking over his thoughts again, and without a second thought he is already grabbing a plate and getting more lamb. A thud is heard behind him, a loud one rather. Shinji turns around to see the Dinkster guy just tripped on a mess of strawberry juice on the floor, landing on his head. Shinji slightly cringes as he thinks of the result of such a fall in real life. Possible brain trauma, and loads of pain. Aincrad doesn't have that, as pain is non-existent thanks to SAO's pain cushion system. As Shinji sits at a table and begins his third round of his meal, he catches a glimpse of the guy's familiar flying up to the tent's roof or so, taking a few strawberries with itself.

    Walking into the tent somehow feels like a breathe of fresh air as Shinji steps in, almost as if he misses the event's lively atmosphere and its chandeliers. Also, walking with Cordelia felt like being with a sister based on her behavior, or maybe it is just him. Upon hearing Cordelia's mention of the chocolate fountain, Shinji could see it when he approached the tent with her. The fountain's chocolate is around four stacks tall, the liquid flowing out of the tower without stopping as it provides guests to dip certain food with. Shinji walks towards the fountain and looks at it for a while, wondering which food is tastier with it. Surrounding it are fruits and snacks, the strawberry seems to be the popular bunch as a lot of those were already taken by the guests. Shinji shrugs as he hasn't the heart to taste the fountain and looks at Cordelia, trying not to smile more at her childish behavior out of shyness. "Which do you usually like to eat with the chocolate itself?" He asks. @Cordelia

    As much as he wants to question why Cordelia cared to lecture a random guy like him, Shinji finds himself agreeing with her and nods with a "Fine." Maybe she sees something inside him which he doesn't realize yet, but whatever nagging technique she unleashed upon him still worked to his brain. If he can't get out of his own cave, she may be the hands that will take him by the horns and pull him out instead. Standing up and keeping the pendant back into his inventory, he looks at the tent for a while, noticing that it gets a little quieter even though the event seems to be far from over at this time. He looks back at Cordelia as she mentions her hunger, and as if it is on cue, he finds himself hungry from all the melancholy too. He swallows his shyness as he speaks to her, "I'm getting hungry again. I want to see if they still have more food downstairs. If not I'll at least drink the punch." Shinji looks away from her slightly, as if he is a child being shameful of his actions in front of his mother. "And...thanks for the nagging...I'll never give this away to everyone until the time is right. Cross my heart." With that last sentence, he crosses his chest with his finger. @Cordelia

    Shinji looks up towards Cordelia's cold glare in her eyes, his face remains neutral as he keeps holding onto the pendant. Sure it's a heart, and it is a universal symbol of love, but then...why not just do the quest again to get a new pendant? It is what he initial thinks until he remembers that the pendant takes on a random appearance for each player, although he isn't sure whether two copies of the same design ever exist. Regardless, he now thinks that this heart shape must be a rare form of the pendant. Though Shinji listened to Cordelia's advice and have no objections to it, he still isn't sure whether he can keep it for so long, but seeing that she is serious about her demand, guess it will have to do. He nods slowly to Cordelia as he keeps looking at her glare, then a thought crosses his mind. "...Cordelia sama?" He says. "You don't want me to just give it away so I can give it to you instead, is it? Your heart is already set who is chosen to give you this pendant?" @Cordelia

    [OP - F22] Star-Crossed Gala

    Shinji looks up to Cordelia's face for a few seconds or so as she mentions his own Hoya pendant, then fishes it out of his inventory which he kept it back into earlier during the walk up here. He faces the distant tent again while staring at its red heart, his thumb slowly rubbing its smooth surface as he thinks of giving it to somebody if he finds it boring to keep around. But for some reason, part of him still wants to keep this pendant for unknown reasons. "About that..." he says while his eyes are fixed on the pendant. "If I give it to someone, it means I am either selling it or already told them I don't want it and that they should gift this to someone they are fond of. There is no one special I have in mind, and even if I have one, I don't...feel worthy in giving this to her. It should be someone better....someone more deserving. There's nothing special about me other than being a loner and someone wielding a big sword swinging here and there..." He doesn't know why he is opening up a bit too much to Cordelia, but the damage had been done. He sighs in defeat and enclose the pendant into his fist, looking down at the ground with a frown. "Better to be alone than to awkwardly fail at trying to get a mate. I'm fine with them being friends with me if they choose so, but that is it..." @Cordelia

    To Shinji, Cordelia is either a psychic or she is very good at reading people, and afraid that she will question further about his emotion, he ignores her remark about it. He freezes for a while as he looks at her face while his hair is being ruffled like a fur, then he looks back at the tent. That ruffling sure felt nice, but what is more amusing about Cordelia is her child like behavior, though Shinji sort of suspects that it might be a cover that bottles up her true emotions. Upon hearing that question, Shinji shrugs as he is now calm, his voice remains soft but still audible enough to be heard properly while his eyes keep gazing at the tent. "At first it's the food, then it's this Sapphire Falls...but I was sure it is more than that. I wish I know my true reason for being here, and no, it couldn't be because I am looking for somebody. Otherwise..." Shinji looks up to Cordelia and continues, "...I wouldn't be here if I wasn't hungry or wanted free food. I would already be in my room sleeping." Shinji looks down on the ground for a moment, before looking back up at her with a question, "Are you here with your friends, to sow chaos in that party too?" @Cordelia

    Shinji doesn't know how long he has been staring at the flower for a long time, but he doesn't mind as he is neither tired nor feeling cold here. He enjoys this peace and quiet, and with no one to talk to, he thinks he can speak his thoughts out loud about this event and his current state in Aincrad, which he finds sad as it still remains intact as in Tokyo. He sets down the flower and sighs deeply as he looks over the tent, drawing his knees to his face and puts his arms onto them, admiring the view of this beautiful land. He closes his eyes as he attempts to fight the urge to cry....it's so alone here. He rather go back and slay monsters again, maybe even die slaying than out of his miserable loneliness. As he wipes a few tears away from his cheek with the sleeves of his suit, he hears his name being called out from behind by a familiar voice. Is that...? He turns around to see Cordelia the katana girl, the very same that was his company in the Hoya quest. And holy s**t, she looks stunning in that red dress. Shinji could see her exposed thighs too, though he is more focused at her face as he doesn't expect her, out of all people, to come here, let alone acknowledging him. "O...oh, Cordelia-sama. You are not with your friends?" He asks in his usual soft voice. @Cordelia

    Arriving at the summit of the falls, Shinji finds a spot at the edge to sit on and does so, the breeze cooling his face as he lets out a sigh. For a moment, peace conquers his mind as he admires the stars twinkling in the sky, the night promising him much rest and quiet. He looks over the edge and sees the tent's roof, as well as hearing a bit of the event's commotion. Should there be something interesting going on or he is hungry for more lamb, he would come down there. Otherwise, he prefers to stay here for now and enjoy the peace. As he looks at his own pants, he slightly frowns as he realizes that he is only wearing this just to abide by the dress code and not to make himself tidier or more handsome. Not even the suit itself makes him think that he is prettier than he is. Noticing a pretty purple flower near him, he picks it up and stares at it closely as the sounds of the waterfall fills his ears. The petals glow well in the dark, and Shinji finds himself attracted to it as he gazes at it for a little longer, as if it is his only companion for the night.

    "Neither of those...I myself don't know why I am here..." Shinji answers Valna as he keeps looking at her red eyes, his hand holding the pendant is still behind as he remains still in his spot. "Maybe it's the free food...maybe it's the Sapphire Falls. Maybe it's the view. Either way, they aren't...how do I put it...true answers if you know what I even mean." Shinji shrugs at his answers and looks outside for a few seconds before looking back at Valna. Feeling slightly uncomfortable in talking about this subject, he simply bows respectfully to Valna and says, "Excuse me. Have a good night." He keeps the Hoya pendant obscured from plain view as he walks out of the tent and eventually along the path leading up to the summit of the Sapphire Falls. He lets his sights admired by the gorgeous flowers decorating both of its sides on the way up, the sounds of the event's commotion soon fades away the further he leaves the tent.
  10. ID: 135763 -- BD: 8 + 1 ACC = 9 (No ACC based critical) Sword Art Used! (x6 (2+2+2) AoE Blast) Shinji: HP 138/138 -- Energy: 4/14 Boar Pup 1: HP 0/5 Boar Pup 2: HP 0/5 Boar Pup 3: HP 0/5 Shinji sprints out of the pups' circle and keeps running as they give chase, only to turn around and suddenly unleashes his Sword Art. The glowing green arc of his sword is swung across all three pups at their level, slash wounds visible across their jaws. They explode into polygons and Shinji pants as he remains in his fighting stance, window for a loot window to pop up in front of him. ID: 135763 -- LD: 10 + 1 Bonus LD = 11 (Found 1/3 Tusks) ID: 135765 -- LD: 17 + 1 Bonus LD = 18 (Found 2/3 Tusks) ID: 135766 -- LD: 1 + 1 Bonus LD = 2 (Found no Tusks) Two out of three tusks collected among their corpses. Shinji smiles a little at the result. It's better than getting one or no tusks at all. Just one more and he'll finally hit home run. Standing up, he takes a deep breath and straps his greatsword to his back before moving on. He thinks about going back to the same area with hordes of boars, but decides against it and walks back to the direction of the city gates, hoping to find another pup on the way.

But Aincrad decides to keep his luck pinned onto the floor and beaten up. A line of adult boars suddenly appear and block both Shinji and the pups that later stop to let them cross. Shinji lets out an annoyed grunt as he looks to his right to see more boars coming in. Jumping over them would be out of the question as he doesn't feel confident in doing so successfully without accidentally kicking one of the crossing boars. He doesn't want any more of these pathetic beasts to join in and make this fight more tiring. After what feels like a few minutes of waiting for no more boars to interrupt the fight, he looks at his right again and notices the end of the line. He quickly dashes past its rear and swings his sword towards the pups that then retreat. Shinji gives chase in response, running through the horde until they are all outside the social circle. Now it is just Shinji and the pups.
  12. ID: 135756 -- BD: 4 + 1 ACC = 5 --MD: 4 ID: 135757 -- MD: 7 ID: 135758 -- MD: 6 Shinji: HP 138/140 -- Energy 10/14 Boar Pup 1: HP 5/5 Boar Pup 2: HP 5/5 Boar Pup 3: HP 5/5 Without warning, the pups are already closing in, giving Shinji no window of opportunity to unleash his Sword Art as he is forced to dodge the first, but took hits from the other two at his leg. It feels like some large plastic tennis ball is thrown at him and bounces off him harmlessly, but Shinji does notice that his health chipped off for a tiny bit. Letting out a 'tch', Shinji dodges and kicks away another charge from one of them, which does nothing but to make then angrier. Shinji steps away from the circle and stands in his usual stance as he watches the three scraping their hooves along the ground, ready to charge at him in unison. He wonders if an AoE attack is really necessary...in case he won't get three tusks altogether. But Shinji tries to ignore this thought as he glares at the pups. He has to try. That or he will never find out. His sword will determine the results.
  13. ID: 135755 -- BD: 3 + 1 ACC = 4 -- MD: 2 Shinji: HP 140/140 -- Energy: 11/14 Boar Pup: HP 5/5 The boar pup is either too fast or too low for Shinji's sword to reach out, much to his frustration. By this point, the commotion already attracted a couple more pups as it runs close to them. Immediately they turn aggressive and now moves around Shinji in a circle, letting out squeals and snorts as he stands still, holding his sword firmly. So this is how it will be done huh? Shinji thinks as he lets out a sigh, remembering a Sword Art with an AoE ability, which he hasn't used ever since he first got his sword. It will take a lot of energy since he will be attacking three pups at the same time, but at least it will kill all of them and hopefully drop their tusks, even if he will only get one. It better be that than nothing at all. Bending his knees, Shinji remains in his fighting stance as he prepares to unleash his Sword Art upon the pups.

    Macrodon's 'Dinkster' entrance doesn't even make Shinji jump as he keeps staring at the Hoya pendant, already lost in his own world while questioning his reason for being here. Maybe he should have stayed home instead. Maybe he should have went out and slay more monsters. Yet here he is in a suit, with no one to accompany or talk to and could do nothing but to eat and being himself while distancing himself from everyone. He shortly snaps back to reality and hears a sultry, female voice giving him a remark about his lonely evening. He turns around to see a black haired girl in a black dress, her red eyes looking at him. The first thing he thinks about her is that she looks really pretty. Her face gives off a hint that she might be the flirty type, though Shinji don't really feel butterflies fluttering in his stomach when he looks at her with his neutral expression, especially since tonight he doesn't feel like being shy or hitting on girls. Hiding the pendant behind him, Shinji simply shrugs and speaks in a soft voice while looking outside, "It's normal...nothing to fuss about." @Dazia

    [OP - F22] Star-Crossed Gala

    Having quite enough of standing around in the tent like a mannequin, Shinji turns around to see even more guests, among them Cordelia, the girl that abruptly ended his Hoya quest early for her own sake. Not that he would hate her for that or anything. He realized that it would be boring for her to sit out and let him fight the two minotaurs. Maybe it's best if they could do another quest with a stronger monster next time, one that can't be ended with one shot from her powerful blade. At least thanks to her, he got free experience and the Hoya early in the quest. Soon remembering the Hoya, he looks at Cordelia for a few more seconds, who is now talking to a couple, before turning away and facing the edge of the tent as he brings out his inventory and summons the Hoya into his hand. Without making the object visible from anybody's view by simply not turning around, Shinji stares down at it, the solid, red heart pendant sitting on his hand as he thinks about either keeping and treating it as a good luck charm or sell it to somebody else, perhaps to an engaged couple. Or just be more generous and give them as a gift for free. Either way, the only thing he is doing with it right now is keeping it around, without any intention to show the Hoya to anyone at all.
