Arrival: So you've just arrived in Nyoi-Cho. Congratulations! You must be so excited about having your wish granted. Or maybe you're upset that the result wasn't quite what you expected? If that's the case, then that's too bad! There are no take backs and no redoes, so you're stuck with what you have! Maybe you should have been more careful about how you worded that wish...

Oh well. There's no use in dwelling on it. You're a magi now, and that means adjusting to a whole new lifestyle! Maybe one of the townspeople can help you out.

Only... they're acting a bit strangely, aren't they? They're all too happy to show you around, but there's something unsettling about the way they're behaving. Almost cheerfully dissonant. Any questions about the history of the town are met with blank stares and brief silence, before they plaster a smile onto their faces and change the subject. Any attempts to tell them about your duties as a magi or anything else that relates to the magical will get similar reactions.

Isn't there anyone normal here that you can talk to at all?

Home Improvement: The houses that the magi are given access to really are something, aren't they? There's almost no limit to what they can do! Why don't you create the house of your dreams, or maybe recreate and relive your favorite childhood scenes? Invite some spectators over to marvel!

A Day in the Life: Everyday hero by day, magician by night! You've got a busy day ahead of you and no time to waste! Maybe it's school, or maybe it's work, maybe it's both! Being magical doesn't make you exempt from paying those shopping bills!

Practice makes Perfect: This magi stuff sure looked easier on TV. You don't understand your power and it's frustrating trying to use it in combat when you don't get it. Maybe it's time to just take some time to figure this out. Good thing none of the citizens can see you when you transform! Test out those new skills, cause a little mischief, or be the helping hand someone might need!

Fighting Evil by Moonlight: Things aren't as easy as they looked on TV. Nightmares are tough and there's real danger in there. There are victories... but, some are not as clear cut as others. Is today a successful attempt, or are you on your last legs standing up against an enemy far stronger than yourself? Do you forge on ahead, or do you retreat?

A Corrupted Soul Gem: You neglected to take care of your soul gem, and now you don't feel quite yourself anymore. You feel like you're losing your sense of self - all you seem to be able to focus on is your old regrets and past failures. What's happening to you?

A Dreadful Nightmare: You had an absolutely horrid day. As you drift off to sleep, your mind dwells on all the injustices you've had to endure. In response, your bed swallows you up, and your room shifts into a horrific Nightmarescape. What sort of Nightmare are you? What kind of Nightmarescape do you create? Hopefully your fellow magi can stop you before you cause too much damage!

A Witch's Curse: A Nightmare is nothing in comparison to the horror of a Witch. Perhaps you've been bitten by her sweet kiss, now only able to see the futility in all you do. Perhaps you've just witnessed one of your most beloved friends succumbing to the darkness in their heart, forsaking their wish for a curse - or perhaps you have decided to do it yourself. One thing is for sure... there's no turning back now.

[Hunting came naturally to Haruka.

Truth be told, this was...well, different was a bit too simple a word to explain the discrepancy between this and her usual prey. She supposes there should be some relief, some kind of feeling that killing Nightmares was so different from killing people, but really, there wasn't. At best, the difference was somewhat curious to her, a small amusement at the back of her mind.

Even if she had become more averse to her usual hunting-stalking, to the demands of her being once her memories - Haruka's memories - had become so much more firmly entrenched in her, it was still easy to fall into the most basic needs and mindset of herself. The familiars were amusements. Certainly, they were more dangerous than most of the humans Haruka had hunted, but then again Haruka hardly amused herself by hunting the most dangerous of people. The perverted, the disgusting, the trash of society. Most times once it was clear she was dangerous they'd run from her, but she was usually upon them by then. Sometimes they'd flail, try to push her back. Occasionally they'd be armed with something like a bat or a pipe or a knife, but even that mattered very little to her, and how unprepared to use their weapon they usually were.

She was a hunter by nature.

Following the little blob was a slower task than hunting people were, though. It was a necessity though, to have to catch the thing off guard. It was almost a mercy that this place had granted her her teeth as a weapon at least. Preferable if she still possessed her actual strength, her ability to rip and tear and eat, but if all she was to be given was her teeth, well. That was a start. The body was still too weak to be aggressive aside from the most dire of situations, though. So trying to sneak up on the thing, grab it, and bite it apart was her best course of action.

And then it turned out she wasn't the only one stalking it. Haruka wondered if the other girl was even aware of the fact Haruka was in front of her, so much so that she doesn't bother to try and grab the familiar as it darts under her. She gets pushed back softly as Yoshino runs into her, already expecting it from the girl.

And just smiles at Yoshino as she tries to apologize. Pleasantly. Pleasant is always best, at least at first.]

They can be tricky sometimes, can't they?

[Strange as it probably would sound to say, nervousness revealed a lot about a person. Yoshino wouldn't go as far as to call it an inherently trustworthy reaction in someone, but there was nonetheless a disarming quality to it. That was the reason she turned so often to nervousness herself; the reason she played the part of the small, trembling animal when she was trying to lull the other party into a false sense of security.

It's also because of that reason that Yoshino immediately feels a sense of unease from the situation she's found herself in. The girl she'd bumped into - the one talking to her now - was pleasant; the picture of calmness. For most, that would be reason to be put at ease. But for Yoshino's part, all she can think is the way there seemed to be no moment in which this person was even slightly taken aback.

It isn't proof of anything conclusive, of course. Not evidence that would ever be permissible on a court of law. But for Yoshino, it evoked the image of possibilities to her that gave her reason to be on-guard.

Well, it never did hurt to be careful when meeting a stranger.]


I had been so engrossed in following it that I entirely forgot my surroundings.
