[F10 - R4 Tailor] 明るい (akarui)


Recommended Posts

DTqDfeyW4AE0OlC?format=jpg&name=large
One of the few populated locations in the large city of Yomi, 明るい - written in the Rōmaji language as akarui, or Luminous - this small shop stands out against those around it through the fact that it contains active power, a small light in the otherwise dark and abandoned city. Maintaining the traditional Japanese styling that is found throughout Yomi, the shop contains a windowless front, with a large noren containing the symbol for 'star'.

Upon entering the shop, customers are greeted by a warm and welcoming shop front, containing numerous standing displays of clothing and armour pieces on mannequins, and shelves filled with numerous different fabrics, linens and assorted plush items.

Behind the counter that divides the storefront can be seen a collection of tailoring tools, between a work table that stretches several metres long, a spinning wheel, as well as large cabinets that contain the multiple different materials.

Laid out on the counter for customers are a collection of diagrams for possible creations, commonly ordered items and concepts that are currently available. Alongside these diagrams are custom order forms that can be completed by customers who want something beyond what is currently available.

Zenshu stood in the doorway, staring into the shop. It was humble, meagrely stocked and overall underwhelming compared to most well situated storefronts that he had been in during his time in Aincrad. What it didn’t lack, however, was the fact that it was his – that he had earned it.

“This is something that I’m not just going to run, I’m going to run it well. It’s going to take time, and effort – but I have an abundance of both, and I plan on making this a huge success. No matter how much time and effort it takes!”

Determination abundant on his face, Zenshu stepped behind the counter, taking stock of his materials before setting to work on his very first creations in his newly opened shop. It was void of customers, for now, but he knew soon enough he’d be filling orders.

Zenshu's eyes roamed over the discarded fabric that he had been working with the day before. Most of it was a complete loss - the designs either I'll fitting, or simply not turning out the way he had imagined. The pieces in his mind, which seemed so simple, had turned out to be far more complex than Zenshu was prepared for - and the final products, if they could even be called that - had been tossed aside as he realised they were doomed for failure. 

"Today is a new day though, so let's not let the failures of the past hold us back! Keep trying, and eventually I'll succeed. I just need to keep practicing, and one day I'll be as good as that NPC - or even better!"

The strewn about clothing bespoke to the difficulties that Zenshu had been having with his designs. He huffed slightly as he glanced over his shop – cluttered with tossed aside materials and pieces of half-completed, yet abandoned clothing. His most recent attempts had been even more disappointing than those he had tried the day before.

“Well, they do say success doesn’t come easy. But this is far harder than I had anticipated. I sure hope that the eventual payoff is worth my time!” Setting aside his feelings of disappointment and despair, Zenshu returned to his work, determined to find success in the shop no matter what it required – and no matter how long it took.

Zenshu glanced about the shop, his eyes passing over the heaps of clothing left incomplete on the table - most tossed aside once Zenshu figured out that the pieces were not coming out the way he wished. He sighed as he reviewed the growing piles, wondering what he was doing wrong.

"I just need to continue pushing forward. Soon, I'll get the hang of it and have the success I need to really get things rolling around here!"

His success hadn't truly grown, but as he glanced about the tossed aside materials Zenshu was happy that he could at least save some of the materials he'd used the day previous. 

"Sometimes it's the little things...I may not have finished a piece yet - but at least everything I'm using hasn't been an entire waste! I can probably re-use some of this for today's work...and maybe I'll have a bit more success with it!"

Another failure of an attempt. Zenshu wondered what he was doing wrong - sure, he'd been gaining good experience even with his failures. He'd seen the progress in his level, but also in his ability to tell when something was going wrong and to stop. But he'd yet to figure out exactly how he was supposed to find success in the things he was creating. Pulling aside the wasted pieces, he settled himself into the work table once more, taking time to set his materials and goods up before beginning his work.

"Soon, I'll get the hang of this. I can't let these failures drag me down. I'm already getting better - maybe I haven't completed an award winning, eye-catching piece yet, but it's coming! And that's all that matters. Eventually, I'll get there. I just need to keep going."

Yesterday's piece had gone relatively well. He'd managed to complete a full set of samue that had turned out relatively stylish - enough so that he'd held on to the piece, considering using it for his own wear purposes. 

"Persistence is key. I consistently put my effort into it, and eventually I was rewarded with success. I just need to keep that in mind, with all the pieces that I'm trying - I won't always succeed immediately, but if I work hard, and keep trying then eventually it'll pay off!"

He gave a broad smile to himself and the otherwise empty room, before seating himself at the work table once more. His skill having increased, he decided it was time to try something a little more difficult, but possibly worthwhile to him.

Even with his increased rank, Zenshu was finding that his luck wasn't getting any better with his work. Sure, he'd managed to create the one set of clothing - which had turned out nicer than he'd expected, if he was honest with himself. But since then, he'd wasted more than he'd prefer to have done. He was aware that there would be loss - that just came with any success or business - however, he'd never expected to have this much trouble. 

Knowing there was no point in focusing only on the negative - it for sure wouldn't increase his success rate at least. Putting aside the thought of all the wasted material, Zenshu sat at the table - determined to keep trying, no matter how long it took to create his masterpieces. He knew it would be a long time before he was creating the eye catching pieces he wanted, but until that day he'd continue trying. Giving up wouldn't help him here.

Zenshu's success had completely halted, and as he glanced about his shop he began to wonder what he was doing wrong. He was thankful that his mistakes yesterday had not completely wasted all of his materials - he'd been able to save a good portion of the threads that he'd been using. 

"Well, I guess I should be glad for that at least! I'm not losing out on anything. Simply not making as much progress as I'd like to be making...but then again, I'm not really that skillful yet. I have only been doing this for a a little while, after all! I'm sure with enough time, and patience, that my skill will become...well, better. Maybe even masterful...although I hope that we're not here long enough for that to occur..."

Success. It was a word that Zenshu was starting to think may be well outside of his grasp. No matter how much effort, no matter how careful he'd been over the past few days, he'd not found it. As he stared at the growing piles of reject - some salvageable, some complete losses - he couldn't help but begin to wonder if he would ever break out of the rhythm of lose that had occurred over and over again.

"It may be hard to hold on to the hopes...to know that one day it'll change. But one day it will change! I'm going to keep working at it until I finally become successful - I can't fail forever...I mean, even logically I should get lucky at least once or twice..."

His success had finally come, and as he stared over the completed items, Zenshu couldn't help but admire his handiwork. Sure, he could see some flaws in the designs - things that a master would look down upon. But over all, it was acceptable work that he would be proud - well, that he was proud - to display in his shop. 

His eyes flitted over the pieces still waiting, his confidence having returned as the ideas began to flow into his mind. Smiling, he settled himself behind the threading wheel. He had finally found his successful streak. He knew there was still a chance that it was just a one-off, but it was enough to bolster his failing spirit, and that was all that mattered right now.

The day off had helped Zenshu to clear his mind, giving him time to push away the constant failures that had been plaguing his optimism, and leaving him wondering if he wasn't better off giving up. He'd spent the time simply exploring the city, looking into other closed tailor shops - and browsing through a few NPC-based ones - in order to find inspiration in his work. While it had left him refreshed, it had also left him with far more ideas than he'd expected to walk away with.

"Well, at least I won't be bored, or lost for though for a while! I should be looking forward to this! I've lots of practice to do, and so many different concepts to work with now. The only big question is, where to start?" He glanced at the few items that he had on display, before nodding to himself. "Perhaps I should perfect a single piece, before attempting to expand my repetoire too much...I've got just the thing in mind for today!"

His skills had only grown as he continued to practice, and his most recent pieces bespoke the ability that he had recently gained. Zenshu couldn't help but take a moment to admire what he had accomplished. He knew that he had already made a lot of progression towards his craft, but as he carefully considered his completed works, Zenshu wondered if he couldn't do more.

"I've really made some progress with my designs...but some of it still feels like it could use some work. The samue could definitely be better fitting...although it's well lined. And the haori could also use some finer adjustments..." He settled himself at the work table and pulled his final pieces of crafting material towards himself.

  • Zenshu changed the title to [F10 - R4 Tailor] 明るい (akarui)

He'd been busy as of late. Between meeting new people, and heading out to find a familiar, Zenshu hadn't had time recently to focus on his work - and because of that, he'd wondered if his business would suffer. He doubted that would be the case, but even still he wanted to ensure that he didn't neglect it for too long.

Returning to his place behind the work table, he pulled forth the materials he'd gathered and set to work on his newest creations. He hoped that sooner or later his skill would reach a point where he could begin being truly pleased with what he had created, rather than the simply acceptable pieces he'd been making.
