The Wilderness is so great lately! It's such an amazing city. I haven't found a really good science store yet, but that's okay. The ChocoCro place is worth it.

That reminds me. There are a lot of good snacks down there, and so many vending machines, but I don't think I'll have time to try everything by myself. Could people share their favorites, and tell me where they found them? I'd like to make an orderly list.

[Added a few minutes later] River, if you're still reading your journal, I'm going to buy something good from the market for you today so you don't have to eat lake fish or...whatever it is you eat these days. Come visit me when you can, okay?

[after seeing Rosalind's note to him while nosing through his journal, River goes to meet her at the bazaar, flying over the islands instead of crossing the bridges (many of which are too small for him anyway). He waits outside near the entrance, coiled up on the ground patiently]

River! [She spots him right away, which isn't hard with a big white dragon, and beams at him immediately, running over to hug him.]

I'm so glad you're here! Are you having a good day? Did you have a nice morning swim?

[he's totally used to Rosalind's hugs now, and returns it by nosing at her hair, and then nodding in answer to her questions. His whiskers curl forward at the scent of food in her shopping bag, and he hopes she got something fresh and unpackaged for herself. He doesn't like the look of these things that come out of vending machines]

[Rosalind giggles at the affectionate touch--it's almost ticklish--and gives him one more squeeze before digging into the bag of freshly-wrapped goods she's got.]

I hope you like them; I know you're not a fan of most of the snacks I buy, even if they are really tasty. Here: onigiri, and mochi, and some dango, all from the specialized foods stand.

[he'd have to disagree on her view of her snacks--mostly they just taste of plastic and metals to him, depending on their packaging. These snacks, however, have a very appealing scent. As she unwraps them, he bends his head down to nose carefully at one of the onigiri, a few rice grains sticking to his muzzle]

You like them? I'm so glad!

[She brushed off the grains with her hand. Gotta look nice, little brother.]

[he purrs a pleased confirmation--they really do smell very appealing--and nudges Rosalind's shoulder in affectionate gratitude. Not only that, but the onigiri and mochi seem familiar, like something he's eaten before]

[She laughs and pulls a small bag of chocolate crunchies to munch on. River has his preferences, she has hers.]

I hope it's enough. Do you get really hungry? You're so big now. You used to be shorter than me.

[he casts a disapproving eye on Rosalind's snack, suspecting that it's something overprocessed and oversweetened. Short of snatching it out of her hands, though--which would be exceedingly ill-mannered--there's not much he can do to stop her from eating them]

[he shakes his head in answer to her question. Strangely enough, he can't remember ever feeling an urgent need to eat. A good thing, perhaps, as the foods he can eat without feeling sick seem rather limited. But the onigiri and mochi will be all right, he knows. He tries an onigiri, picking it up delicately in his teeth and swallowing it whole, and purrs contentedly]

I like the little snacks that are shaped like mushrooms. The stems are cookies and the caps are chocolate. They had them in a vending machine in Shiba Park and in a couple of convenience stores.

Mushrooms shaped like chocolate? That sounds wonderful! I wish real mushrooms could be chocolate.

Your friends are eating lake fish? I know you're kinda scary in the kitchen, Roz, but this is getting kind of ridiculous.

He's a dragon and he's my brother and he can eat whatever he wants! You can talk when you don't leave us wondering what you're doing for weeks. Where have you been?

Your b [[This is quickly struck out. Goddammit, how the hell is he supposed to be a douchebag at that? ...Okay, this is the second indication he's really not good at being an asshole on purpose. Maybe he'll try again later.]

A dragon, huh? I'd make a crack about family resemblance, but then you'd probably put chemicals in my drink or something, so I'll refrain.

And I was just getting some space; I needed to clear my head, that's all--don't take it personally. I've got crash space in Section One from my Adventuring job, so it's not like I was just out being a hobo.

[Inkscrawl, because that's mean. She's linefacing at the journal, Lea. There might also be a lip quiver.]

Well, you should let us know! I kept making extra dinner and now there's loads of extras. And I'm pretty sure you're not supposed to just take up an extra apartment unless you're going to live there all the time. So you should just come home.

[....goddammit. now he really can't be a jerk.]

Er... okay, sorry, I guess I should have kept in touch. I've had a lot on my mind.

[come home? aw hell. now what is he supposed to say?]

Don't worry, you're not getting rid of me that easily; I'll be back, I've just got a few things to sort out.

Date: 2010-08-10 02:40 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] blindedmewith.livejournal.com
Yes, you should have. [Beat.] But I suppose we can forgive you this once.

Don't worry us so much, Lea. At least leave note next time. But there shouldn't be a next time. Dummy.

You don't have to worry so much, you know. I'm a big boy, I can look after myself.

[He won't bring up that Kagerou knew he was going to be out of the house until further notice, because that's just mean. And he really does suck at being a dick. SAD GIRL. HIS ONE WEAKNESS.]

I'll [pause] be home before too long. So no more worrying, okay?

We should go together! I haven't been able to explore very much, but I might have found a few choice locations.

From: [identity profile] blindedmewith.livejournal.com
Oh, let's do that! I'd take River with us, but he doesn't even like my snacks when he's a boy and not a dragon.

From: [identity profile] weaver-girl.livejournal.com
You're sure we couldn't find something he'd like? There are more foods in that city than I'd know what to do with!

And it's all very familiar, too.

He likes very fresh food. Nothing processed. But processed food is a part of science—it's how they put the goodness in! [Rationalizing, what is that.] I'll get some things for him if I see them, but I'm going shopping in the Bazaar later, too.

Date: 2010-08-09 07:06 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] weaver-girl.livejournal.com
Oh, I see! I'm quite sure I saw an open-air market, though... Would it be impolite to ask, what does he usually eat? Does he hunt for himself? I'm afraid I'm really not up on dragon habits.

Date: 2010-08-09 07:16 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] blindedmewith.livejournal.com
Um...you know, I'm not sure. I thought he might eat fish since he spends a lot of time at the lake now, but I never saw him eat meat when he was here before.

The other dragon we have here seems to be carnivorous, but I suppose River could be different. He looks nothing like Havoc, and I don't think Havoc is also a human boy.

He still doesn't talk to you, does he?

I found a section with a lot of technology things! I do not know where they come into science, but if I see you I can mark it on your map for you!

Really? Thank you, Mr. Youth! That sounds like lots of fun. Have you been visiting a lot?

spandexisyouth: (confident)
From: [personal profile] spandexisyouth
You are welcome!

I have. Some sections seem almost a little familiar but I cannot put my finger on why, so I keep going back and looking. A lot of it is not familiar at all.

From: [identity profile] blindedmewith.livejournal.com
Maybe it's a city from where you come from and you've visited it before, or read about it!

I have seen my home, or I think I have, on the fourth floor. It was part of my dream as well. Though I did not see all of it. Maybe it is part that I did not see that it is reminding me of!

Speaking scientifically, that would make a lot of sense.

If you explore far enough into the Wilderness, maybe you'll find your home again. Then you could get to know it better.

Good luck! If you find it, let me know and I'll come see it.
