Chapter Two: A White Century
<center>(Kazuya)</center> You run along the forested path hoping for the best and that hope is sound. Within a couple of seconds, you can hear the firm patter of footsteps behind you. You and Ayano arrive at the area where everyone else is as night finally graces the sky. You hear what is said upon your arrival. <center><b>(Kazuya, Quintus, H20, Florina, Bartz)</b></center> Byakuran doesn't react to the arrival of another person. He simply sighs and seems bored now. <i>I actually wanted some marshmellows.</i> He twists a white strand of hair near his face. Looking away from you and the rest of your group. <i>You keep saying you want to talk but haven't said anything of interest. Are you people trying to waste my time?</i>
Chapter Two: A White Century
<center><b>(Quintus, H20, Florina, and Bartz)</b></center> <i>Finally we get to the fun stuff.</i> Byakuran halts and Soichi smacks into him. Byakuran is left unphased by the collision while Soichi has to painstakingly adjust his glasses. <i>All you oldies were rambling on and on and on and it almost put me to sleep.</i> Byakuran feigns a yawn. <i>Am I getting a lecture? or do you plan to teach me a lesson with your teenage fists? You could always try to appease me with marshmallows.</i> <center><b>(Quintus)</b></center> You spot Mukuro sitting on a nearby tree branch. He detachedly observes all that is taking place but his fists are curled and shaking. His purple eyes reveal nothing, but he appears tense enough to jump in at any time. <center><b>(Kazuya)</b></center> Ayano stares at you with disbelief. <i>And now you talk nonsense.</i> Ayano clams up once she notices your gaze and instead of continuing this drama further. She merely pouts before forcefully shoving you toward the path your comerades took. <i>Go one without me. I have some stuff to think about and your group needs you. You stupid nerd.</i> Ayano stops pushing once your feet touch the edge of the forest footpath. <i>I'll be waiting right here for all of you guys.</i>
Chapter Two: A White Century
(Florina, Bartz, Quintus, and H20) Ah well~ Byakuran jovially shrugs his shoulders and tosses your infantile friend like a ball. He then begins to walk away without looking back. You and your friends have become boring to him. Byakuran wait up! Soichi guiltily looks back, yet he still frantically follows behind Byakuran. You can watch as the two college students walk away or do something about their departure. What will you do? (Kazuya) Stop bossing me around like you know me! Ayano shouts as she deftly side-steps your head. If you were using your full force to push her then ther avoidance could easily cause you to stumble and fall. She stands her ground and glares at you. Look I joined your group to not be leftin the creepy manor but you are starting to be creepier than the manor. Acting like we have some sort of deal with each other when I just met you todayish. Ayano looks around. Does this even count as the same day? Errr .... nevermind you are just being weird and i'm not going anywhere until you stop. Or until you make me.
Chapter Two: A White Century
<center><b>(Quintus, H20, Bartz)</b></center> Byakuran momentarily rakes his eyes over you as you conspire among your allies. He then returns his attention to Florina. He plays with Florina's tiny hands while Soichi tiredly sighs. <i>Please take him back.</i> Soichi attempts to shove Florina. Florina maintains an iron grip on Soichi. Soichi grimaces in consternation. Byakuran genuinely laughs at the novelty of this and his laughter easily draws your attention to him. Soichi and Florina stop struggling among themselves as Byakuran's laughter fills the space. Even Mukuro who had once again suggested murder is unable to suggest more when Byakuran laughs. <i>How can this kid bother me when he is so fun to have around~</i> Byakuran speaks between his chuckles and giggles. <i>Your friend must be the careless sort to leave a kid in the care of other kids. Tsk some parents are so irresponsible.</i> Byakuran pats Florina on the head. <i>Young lightnings are especially dangerous due to their defensive nature.</i> Soichi's face blanches and he tosses Florina to Byakuran's outstreched arms. <i>He was a lightning the entire time and you couldn't warn me!</i> Byakuran captures Florina and holds him up above his head. <i>You never asked~</i> Byakuran looks over to you. <i>Can I keep this kid?</i> <center><b>(Kazuya)</b></center> Ayano stops dead in her tracks preventing you from moving any further. A shell-shocked expression rests on her face and her arms grows limp in your grip. Her eyes seize on you with fear yet her body mechanically swings a tonfa in her free hand. She swings the tonfa down your grabbing hand with enough force to make a resounding crack. It could have come from your bones or the collision of metal on flesh but either way its bound to hurt. <i>You can't know this stuff .... it's impossible.</i> Ayano looks at your hand with disbelief. She backs away slowly wrenching her arm from your girp if the tonfa didn't force your hand to loosen. Her eyes now dart around with increasing panic. <i>That was just made up shit from my dreams.</i> She presses her hand against her face. <center><b>(Florina)</b></center> <b>You regain consciousness and control of your body.</b>
Chapter Two: A White Century
<center><b>(Kazuya)</b></center> You approach the directory and are able to see a map that offers the college campus in colorful detail. A tiny red circle marks the spot where you are at labeling said spot as, &quot;the garden commons&quot;. The path that your allies have taken does not have such a title but the path does head toward a building marked, &quot;engineering school&quot;. However, between your current spot and the building, there are a lot of trees marked on the map. <i>So this place is pretty big huh ...</i> A familiar voice inquires. It seems you were followed by one member of your group and probably one that you did not expect. An arm wraps around your waist as you are forced by another arm to look down at Ayano's grey eyes. <i>I've been waiting for the chance to talk to you alone like this.</i> Ayano pouts and anxiously bites her lower lip. She then suddenly shouts right in your ear. <i>You stare at me way too much creep!</i> Her arms then let go of you as she crosses them with irritation. <center><b>(Bartz, Quintus, H20)</b></center> You follow the surprisingly bilingual fortnite skin away from the general population of the campus and into some dimly lit woods. There are lights even so the trees overhead mask their brilliance was oppressive shade. Also, your way back is marked by the path you have been following but the way ahead is becoming increasingly dark as night begins to emerge. Florina runs for a while possibly causing you to feel some fatigue. Perhaps you even begin to wonder how Florina's infant legs outrace your teenage ones. Yet the chase eventually ends when Florina abruptly stops moving and leaps into the arms of a bewildered college student sitting on a bench. The college student has familiar red hair and wide frame glasses that make his surprised eyes look smaller. He may instantly be recognized by those that saw him in the future before he was crushed. The real dead ringer though is the other student sitting with him that is obviously Byakuran. A Byakuran that is shorter and with longer hair but with an otherwise similar appearance to his future self. This version of Byakuran notices your arrival and asks. <i>Yo is this baby yours? He suddenly jumped on my shy friend who is in no way ready to become a parent yet. Nope nu uh. I wouldn't make a great mom either.</i> Byakuran reconsiders this. <i>Actually I think I would make a great mom! Can we keep him Irie?</i> Byakuran pleads with his friend. Soichi is not nearly as amused and tries to get Florina to stop squirming by restraining the tiny infant with his arms. <i>We are not keeping this thing.</i> The two friends begin to avidly converse with each other and Mukuro takes their momentary distraction as a chance to whisper from behind. <i>We can easily kill Byakuran right now kufufufu.</i><div class='edited'>(edited by Raconteur)</div>
Chapter Two: A White Century
<center><b>(Everyone)</b></center> <i>Interesting.</i> Mukuro mentally files away this infor for later use. He doesn't say anything else about your &quot;condition&quot;, but the slight upturn of his lip does hint at some potentially wicked plans. Well that and how his eyes size you and your companions up like tools in an arsenal. Might not have been the best idea to tell an illusionist all this. Ayano noticeably frets over your condition wondering if the same applies to her. Yet, she is not tempted to test her mortality anytime soon. A short walk later .... You and your allies are at the center of a bustling campus community. Around you are tall buildings fitted with glass that offer free peeks into classes currently going on. As students from all walks of life encircle your group to make it to their next class, leave campus, or wander aimlessly since its a nice evening. The sun had set as you made your way to the center of campus and now hanging above you is a faded twilight sky. The students are still easy to pick out under the glow of a few street lamps. Yet, you may want to hurry before it gets dark and increasingly difficult to identify anyone. You may wonder how your are to find your target on a college campus with over eight thousand students. Well your ally, Florina, seems to spare you the trouble by suddenly shouting. <i>Todo tiene solucion, menos la muerte.</i> He looks at you and adds. <i>Quien nada sabe, de nada duda.</i> Then runs away from you and the others toward an unusually empty path thickly lines by trees. This could be the solution you waited for or your ally suddenly lost it and is running toward his mortal demise .... again. If you choose not to follow then there is map directory near one of the glass buildings plus plenty of students to accost for info.
Chapter Two: A White Century
<center><b>(Quintus)</b></center> Mukuro shrugs. <i>That thing wanted me for past sins.</i> He leads you and your allies past the train station, past a gathering crowd, and into a bustling residential neighborhood. You carry a rigid infant body between your arms as a confusing mixture of homes scroll past giving way to much more modern office buildings. A couple of people walking by point and gasp at your group but none stop you as you run on. Mukuro finally speaks again. <i>We made it to Saitama University.</i> <center><b>(H20)</b></center> The sword doesn't bend to your will and you end up running with a sword that trails blue flames. A lot of people you pass by &quot;oooh&quot; and &quot;ahh&quot; at your glowing weapon until they notice the injured people in your party. Then the thrill of seeing a magical prop gives way to concern and worry. You run so fast though that no outside observer really has the time to inquire more about your situation. You hear what Mukuro says. However, all you see is a line of tall trees blocking off a lot of tall buildings from the rest of the neighborhood. Students in trendy clothes filter in and out from a large central path that enters through the line of trees. <center><b>(Kazuya)</b></center> The blood from your right hand stains your white schoolshirt marking you as an object of curiosity for the locals. Yet, none of the locals move to stop you and your allies. Pawing through your pockets you don't find anything in them much less a gauntlet. If you paid any attention throughout the entire run then you would hear what Mukuro says and notice the shift from residential to bueiness center. With Saitama University right in front of you and your allies. <center><b>(Quintus)</b></center> The rigid body in your arms shifts and forcefully begins to cough awake. <center><b>(Everyone)</b></center> Mukuro and Ayano are both stunned at the coughing fit produced from what should be a dead body. Mukuro is especially shocked and warily glares at everyone. <i>How is he still alive?</i> Mukuro asks. <b>Florina has been resurrected.</b>
Chapter Two: A White Century
<center><b>(Florina)</b></center> Everything goes black ... There is a grave before you etched with your actual name when your mind awakens again. In front a giant hole that can fit your body despite you being unable to feel it. Congrats you have died~ A screen turns on behind your grave and you are shown everything you have done thus far. The successes, the accidents, and the regrets. Please wait while your fate is being decided. All your actions play out on screen until it reaches the present. Then the screen simply shuts off and it's dark, shiny surface reflects your actual face. Meanwhile ... Your body remains charred and smashed in the world of the living. <center><b>(Bartz)</b></center> The chain is unable to retreat after you fasten it to your wrists and it has to settle with tugging you as you tug back. You successfully prevent the chain from conducting any futher attacks but it takes a good deal of strength to keep hold of. <center><b>(Everyone)</b></center> Ayano quickly realizes what is about to happen and hastily lets go of the vindice member to avoid being caught in the attack. <center><b>(Kazuya)</b></center> The intense care you have for your two allies causes the flames within your body to blaze into an inferno. A sense of determination fills your entire being from your head to your toes and it is forceful enough to almost sweep you off your feet. All this determination creates a blazing orange fire to rise forth from your hands and the bomb you just received is lit and ready to go. Tossing the bomb at the damaged right side of the vindice member enlarges the hole already ravaging its body. Consuming so much that as a hot wind races across the space there is only a tiny bit of head, arm, and leg remaining of the vindice member. Everything else is strewn out black flames that dissipate in the air. <center><b>(H20)</b></center> You swing the baseball bat fast enough that blue flames envelop it and reveal a katana in its place. It takes some energy to remain in this form and you feel it actively drain from a source you have within but it can last in that form for a decent while. You then take cover and avoid the hot winds emanating from the blast that just took place. <center><b>(Everyone)</b></center> The effects of the vindice member's black flames diminish in the train car and you are able to better view the area. However, the vindice member's physical chains remain and it lashes out two additional chains toward the hearts of the ones that just attacked him. <i>More of us will come for all of you.</i> The vindice member intones. It's body a tattered piece of black flames with only two appendages to support it. But it's words hold a hint of malice as if the vindice members knows that it will ultimately achieve it's goal. <i>No use in running.</i> The rest of the vindice member's words is cut off by the sing-song voice of a cheery train announcement. <i>Attention passangers: we have arrived at Saitama station.</i> Apparently, Mukuro cut off his flame effects that surrounded the train as the vindice member began to speak. Allowing you and your teammates to re-enter the real world without the vindice member noticing. The train doors open wide and the returned crowd begins to scream around you. The regular people are shocked by the condition of the vindice member and the dead infant body lying in the car. Mukuro shouts. <i>We have to go now!</i> Mukuro finally appears and runs out of the train car with Ayano following behind. If you follow after you will arrive at a station platform that looks similar to the one you were at before. Albeit this one is a bit bigger with more people and a whole lot more city traffic.
Chapter Two: A White Century
<center><b>(Florina)</b></center> The vindice member does not react to your taunts as you toss a barrage of pink grenades at its face. The pink grenades explode one after the other creating a chain reaction within the train car and blowing you free of the chain. But also burning you since you remained in the blast zone. Sadly, the second degree burns eat away at your infant skin and your tiny body is smashed against the floor of the car breaking nearly every bone in your body. You feel a world of agony until death mercifully takes you. You died. The vindice member is left with its right side completely blown off from your grenades. However, there is no blood or bone indicating any injury. Just tattered black flames that stream out of the empty space. The vindice member is still standing and active though. Also your grenades generate a severe blowback effect within the train car affecting the rest of your allies. <center><b>(Kazuya)</b></center> You are pushed back by the wind generated in the train car. The chain grabbing at your releases. Orange flames splutter to life again in the palms of your hands but they don't shoot from your palms as intended. They simply stick to your palms and if you relax afterwards they will disappear. <center><b>(H20)</b></center> You are pushed back by the wind generated in the train car. Also due to the actions of a teammate your bat is released from the chains ending the tug of war. <center><b>(Quintus)</b></center> You are pushed back by the wind generated in the train car. The chains you attempt to pull release from your teammate's weapon but if you act fast enough you can still grab it and pull. <center><b>(Bartz)</b></center> You are pushed back by the wind generated in the train car. The chain grabbing at your teammate releases but if you act fast enough you can still attempt to act on it. <center><b>(Everyone)</b></center> Ayano is pushed back by the wind generated in the train car, but that doesn't stop her from committing to a pretty crazy plan. <i>Ahhhhhhhh.</i> She yells as she leaps onto the damaged body of the vindice member. <i>Guys do something!</i> The vindice member begins to thrash about to try to shake her off and doesn't make any additional moves. It seems to be awaiting for something to happen as it's black flames continue to flow out from its wounds. Mukuro still remains nowhere to be seen.
Chapter Two: A White Century
<center><b>(Everyone)</b></center> The waves of chains split into many once they complete their initial sweeping motion. <center><b>(Kazuya)</b></center> You feel a comforting warmth bloom in your chest and on forehead as your right hook is tinged in an orange aura. A decent feat for a first time flame user. But, it harmlessly sails through the air as the vindice member vanishes and appears behind you. The vindice member swiftly chops the back of your hand with the side of its banaged palm. A chain would then circle around you and slam you across the other end of the train car. Away from the rest of your companions. <center><b>(H20)</b></center> You easily sink into a guarded sword stance with your bat right in front of you. No flames appear and the bat maintains it's form. A chain wraps around your bat and tries to rips it away from your hands. <center><b>(Florina)</b></center> You cry and attempt to roll under the seat but a chain slinks around your tiny infant ankle. Yanking you up and holding you upside down over the vindice member. <center><b>(Quintus)</b></center> You move enough to avoid being slammed back first against the car but your left arm takes the brunt of the damage. You bomb makes an impact behind the vindice member without much actual damage. The cloak that is worn by this member is blown right off but no bodily damage can be found. Your bomb also hits your companion. <center><b>(Kazuya)</b></center> Not only were you thrown away from your companions and slammed against the ground but today is really not your lucky day once your companion's bomb lands. The vindice member may have shrugged it off yet the resulting blow is enough to knock you around some more. <center><b>(Bartz)</b></center> You succesfully dodge the initial chain and the one that follows swipes through thin air as you duck. <center><b>(Everyone)</b></center> Ayano is slammed fully against her back by the initial chain, but quickly raises the two tonfas in her hands blocking a follow up blow. She looks at her hands stunned afterwards. As if she did not intend to take such action. Mukuro remains nowhere to be seen. The chain holding one of your companions upside down freely swings about and threatens to smash your companions all over the train car. A gravelly voice enters your mind. <i>The illusionist or your life.</i>

Chapter Two: A White Century
You are abruptly dropped with your companions at the center of a large gathering of people. Gone is the pretty spacious elevator from which you entered, now replaced with a high profile antechamber decorated in the finest of luxuries. From where you have fallen you can see ostentatious couches, marble animal statues, and paintings dating back to a classical era. The calm melody of a fine German piece of music waft in accompanied with a wiff of orchid and rose. The soft peals of water from a fountain within the room sometimes overpowers the music, but both sounds never become too overpowering. Laughter and light bits of conversation are also sprinkled about from the mouths of people wearing vibrant, decorative masks. Upon your arrival some of the people had filtered around you and your companions in a circle and are now discussing this random occurrence in harsh whispers. Their masks occasionally leaping up with their facial movements and their fancy, frivolous style of dress putting what you are wearing to shame. These people don't even bother to help you get up as they chat on and on around you. At the furthest end of the antechamber is a regular sized door decorated with perfect white orchids. It would have been easy to reach on a different day, but the circle of people and the rest walking about could easily slow you down.
Intermission One
<center><b>(Toki, Alphinaud, Cait, Pancake Knight, Niko)</b></center> You fall out of the elevator you originally entered and land on a heap of your own comrades. A pomegranate rolls away from the pile and lies within arms reach. If you were to look around you would see the faces of the people you previously left behind. In front of you stands Walton with an unreadable expression on his face. Around you is the lobby from which you started your journey. The only object left from the trip is the lone pomegranate on the floor. <center><b>(Everyone Else)</b></center> You are able to see your formerly gone companions drop out from the elevator. They seem intact and what they started with is there, but one companion is missing. The screens that let you observe the journey shut off for now.
Chapter One: The Philosopher King
<b>(Pancake Knight, Cait, Sam, and Toki have arrived)</b> You materialize along with three others in the middle of a crowded marketplace. There are no traces of the elevator left and the surrounding mobs remain blissfully unaware of your sudden appearance. The general pushing of the crowd indicates that you are tangible, but no one raises a fuss. If you were to look around you would see plenty of happy people with impossible shades of hair going about their day. Each person strolling from one wooden stall to the next and checking out the available wares. There is also an apparent trend among the people of wearing simple or elaborate robes paired with sandals. Some of the robes are equipped with various symbols or items of jewelry making you and the others stand out like sore thumbs. Overhead the sun casts an oppressive heat on the place making the sea of white tarps above the stalls almost glow. While the brown adobe buildings behind the stalls look paled in the morning light. The sun has the most effect on a tall, glass tower in the distance which is almost painful to gaze directly at. Not that anyone does so already preoccupied in the mundane rituals of the day. At the end of the marketplace are a flight of stairs heading up from between the buildings. However, the stairs are occupied by a swath of men decorated in scaled armor with rapiers at their sides and a tall humanoid dragon-like man.
Restoration
You are stumbling ... Dropping ... Falling from high above. With no clear recollection of where you had been or where you will be going. You feel lightheaded as if freed from all restraint. Though what feelings this sensation could cause is best left up to the one experiencing it. Meanwhile, around you are cascades of words, letters, and random phrases tumbling to the unknown. You follow the same path but at a slower less rushed pace. Plummeting calmly enough to make out meaningful words or details that should jog your mind a little. Pray tell what could you be seeing in the maelstrom of words? <b>(All your actions and choices will be etched in stone)</b>
