The word had spread around the Seireitei fast, that the Shinigami Women's Association (SWA for short) was announcing it's official beginning with a massive beach bash in the mortal world. Mostly it had passed by word of mouth but there had also been a notorious incident where Hara Tai had leaped from building to building shouting the news when she probably had something more important to be doing. And now, the day of the beach bash, there was news that Nogusaki beach had been cleared of mortals by some unseen force that had evacuated all the mortals by hand then wiped their memories of going to the beach that day.

Music (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=leCTdDwEdQk)

Now the immaculate white sands of the famous Nogusaki beach were open for the sole use of the shinigami who decided to attend the celebration with expansive blue skies with nary a storm cloud in sight. Only those fluffy white ones that drift lazily through the sky and add that scenic touch to the gorgeous vista set out before the eye. Clear azure waves crash upon the shore, the reefs and rocks of the cove keeping it a soothing rush rather then a terrible roar, providing an idyllic noise to entertain guests to Nogusaki beach.

The deep blue waters were positively filled with brightly colored fish and beautiful corral reefs that house exotic plants and animals that can be found in few other places then here. Sea gulls stuck to the rocks for their fishing, the cawing scavengers having learned a while ago not to stick their heads in human affairs or have said head chased away for being a winged rodent. Numerous trash cans are haphazardly tossed around the beach, looking like a recent addition, with any litter dumped inside before any of the guests arrived. Not all of the attractions were purely natural though.

Numerous beach umbrellas are staked up out of reach of the lapping waves, but not so far that one would be forced to stay for too long on burning sand. Lounge chairs are set up underneath them, the now stolen property of some mortals who had been forcibly ejected from the beach. Close to twenty vividly colored towels had been arranged across the beach for sun-bathers, all of this compliments of the 7th Division. Further down the beach a small beverage and food stand had been hastily erected out of driftwood and dried grass, giving it an odd homey but primitive look to it despite the well-stocked supplies of food and drinks that were inside. Everything from vegetables, to snack-foods, to watermelons was kept within while the drink selection wasn't as obviously focused on liquor as one might expect from the arranger of the event.

On the far side of the beach, on both sides when it began to curve out into the ocean like a crescent moon, there were numerous tidal pools teeming with life and sea shells. There even a couple of rocky outcroppings that were good for diving or scenic vistas.

Nogusaki beach certainly lived up to the hype of a pristine beach.

Pop.

Confetti flew out of the little party popper in Tai's hand, decorating the air around her briefly, preview of the fireworks that the captain had alluded to when telling people about the beach party. A wide wolfish grin dominates her features, with a completely out-of-place pair of sunglasses covering her eyes.

"Wooh! Welcome to the Shinigami's Women Association's commemoration party! Keep it on the sands is the only rule besides 'what happens in Nogusaki stays in Nogusaki. And if you don't believe that last one, try me, I'll have Kiljaeran lock up anyone who violates it!" She hollers with a loud boisterous uproar of laughter. White bandages are wrapped about her torso, an old-fashioned sarashi that was loosened in view of the festive nature of the party. A matching white loincloth covers her from the waist down, a truly old-fashioned (and a little primitive) set of beachwear thats oddly fitting for the captain of the 7th Division.

Hinata smiled. She'd gotten the rest of her team tied up in doing a backlog of paperwork back in Soul Society.

She, however, was here to enjoy the beach. And probably guard Greta, who she'd taken to understand was coming.

She was wearing a relatively conservative one-piece swimsuit, all black (styled somewhat like Unohana's suit (http://fc07.deviantart.com/fs47/i/2009/203/a/0/Unohana_Retsu_Swimsuit_by_Darraneekeri.png)).

"I have to say, Captain Tai, this is sooo nice. You wouldn't believe how long I've gone without a vacation. And now a women's day at the beach? Even better."

Ami leaps and yips as Tai lets out the party popper, smiling and laughing. The whole Honoka family had indeed come to the beach party, it was a welcome distraction to the stresses they'd had in even day-to-day life.

Ami is wearing a simple black two-piece swimsuit (http://i57.photobucket.com/albums/g225/HopelessLagrima/animeblackswimsuit.jpg).

Mayu is wearing a one-piece (http://cn1.kaboodle.com/hi/img/2/0/0/cd/1/AAAAAkWuXewAAAAAAM0fyA.jpg).

Katashi has simple green swimming trunks on.

"Haha, everyone needs a break now and then kid! Just look at Daisuke, eh? Poor guy needs a break more then anyone." Course, Tai didn't mention that she had somehow managed to bully/convince Daisuke into coming along as well to help keep everything relaxing, that'd be her own little secret.

"Heh, it's even nicer seeing that some people can relax in 2nd Division too, though I doubt you'll get much sun in that thing..." Tai says doubtfully, rubbing her chin and looking at Hinata's swimsuit before shaking her head like a wet dog. "Ah well. Go enjoy yourself kid, and consider joining the Shinigami Women's Association, we could use someone like you to help keep things lively. Eventually my antics get old, or so I've heard from the suicidal."

The captain laughs then, giving the ninja girl a heart slap on the back as she waves a welcoming hand to the Honokas.

"I'll be sure to sign up when we get back. And we do know how to have fun. We're just so damn good at being stealthy, no one sees it happen."

She smirks at this. Seeing the Honokas, she smiles openly. She'd guarded them several times before.

"Mayu! Katashi! Ami! How are all of you? Ami, you look so cute! Mayu, that suit's lovely."

strawberryman
2009-09-02, 08:56 PM
"Ami's -- um, I'm feeling good!" Ami smiles at Hinata. "Your suit is pretty." It should be noted in a swimsuit one could see the red abstract markings on Ami's sides.

Mayu smiles as well. "Thank you... Hinata, was it?" Come on, the family's had how many guards by now? :smalltongue:

"I'm good." Katashi is setting down/up a beach blanket and parasol, which Mayu has a seat on.

2009-09-02, 08:58 PM
"Yes ma'am. Hinata Nobunaga. And you're looking rather pretty yourself, Ami. Hm. Maybe I should help your mother out, and start giving you lessons on how to keep rowdy boys at bay?"

She has a wicked gleam in her eyes.

Off to the side.

An unseen barrier, raised with high-level bakudő and unique abilities masks an extensive area of the beach as rock and reefs.

Within this barrier, the arrancar spend quality leisure time.

Noriko lounges on the beach, reclined on a towel with sunglasses over her eyes, a cool drink at hand. She wore a surprisingly revealing (http://img142.imageshack.us/img142/4633/kotetsus.jpg) swimsuit, considering how she normally dressed (OOC:The one on the left.).

"Mmm. Who came up with this idea, again? Because it's just about the best we've had yet."

Ganurath
2009-09-02, 09:14 PM
Palillo is suddenly standing on the air over Noriko's head. She was wearing the same swimsuit she had used in the lake in her backyard. "It was me and a snowball!"

Marco sits on a blanket that had been set out, with a picnic basket between himself and Alicia (assuming she's there.) Assuming she's there. He's wearing Arrancar-white swim trunks, and he has funky Bount-style tatooes on his chest.

Mia is in the water, in Ressureccion, her head barely peeking over the water. She's waiting for a chance to have fun at the expense of a fellow.

KnightDisciple
2009-09-02, 09:19 PM
"Gah! Lady Palillo, please don't startle me like that! Whew."

She looks around, seeing most others lounging around still.

"...Where's Lady Mia? Hm. Well, I think I feel like cooling off. I'm going for a swim, Lady Palillo. You're welcome as well, the ocean being nice and open and all."

She stands gracefully, walks for a few feet towards the shore...

Before suddenly running and leaping into the water, several yards from shore.

"Yahoo!"

(OOC:Just for you, Ganu.:smalltongue: All set for Mia to do...whatever.)

Honokas

Ami tilts her head to the side in a cute manner. "???"

Mayu chuckles. "It's not like we don't have guards for that... But thank you, Hinata."

"...Go right ahead." Come on, stereotypical protective father. Just be glad he doesn't have a shotgun.


ELSEWHERE!

Liz is seated on a beach lounger ((...one of the flat ones)) next to Noriko in a modest two-piece (http://img82.imageshack.us/img82/4908/img00590lm.jpg) ((without the bling, same general idea, though)). "Yes, it is a excellent day for some well-earned relaxation..." She smiles.

Lance stands behind Palillo. He's wearing similar trunks to Marco, and has a stupid grin on his face. "Shall we join her?"

Viatrix is... somewhere.

2009-09-02, 09:24 PM
Mia's sisters, meanwhile, are sunbathing over some large rocks by the waterside.

Von Geister himself is taking a nap on the sand near them. All but his head buried.

"Was that necessary?"

"Yes."
"Yes."

2009-09-02, 09:37 PM
"So those are your names, huh? Didn't have a chance to meet you three at the party." Tai rumbles, looming over the quartet like...well. A giant. Tai loomed over lots of people, so this probably wasn't a surprise to anyone, taking stock of each of the Honoka's again before a ruthless smirk comes to her face.

"Kukuku, I think I could teach little Ami how to do that just a little better then you Hinata. No offense intended." She says cordially, giving the 2nd Divisioner another pat on the back before offering the Honoka's a short bow. "I'm Captain Tai, I organized this whole shin-dig. Feel free to enjoy yourselves, huh?"

KnightDisciple
2009-09-02, 09:40 PM
"Ah, but Captain Tai. I intend to allow her to keep her well-mannered demeanor, as well as not scare off every boy. Just the wrong ones."

Her smirk is almost...ornery.

She sidles over to Ami.

"Come on, Ami. Let's make a couple of sand castles while your parents relax."

The wink she gives them behind Ami's back implies "among other things".

She then guides the girl over to an empty patch of sand, and does indeed start helping her build a magnificent sand castle. Assuming Ami's not insistent on something else.

"Sure, because I see how well that's worked out for you. How's that boyfriend of yours doing?" Tai asks 'innocently, the sun glasses keeping people from seeing the roll of her eye as she says it. "In any case, glad you three could make it. A visit back to the mortal world will probably do you three a world of good. Can't be good for you to keep copped up inside of the Seireitei."

The imposing woman stretches, turning away from the Honokas and making a beeline for one of the shaded lounge chairs. She still had plans to enact...she just had to wait for the right people to arrive before she could put them into action.

Suddenly, a loud thumping could be heard to approach the beach.

As it neared, it became clear it was music coming from a couple of large SUV's, with a 1982 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/e/e7/KITT_Universal_Studios.jpg) leading the charge.

Out of the SUVs poured several women members of the ARC; all the passengers, as well as the drivers, were female.

The car disgorged a couple more (likely their ranking officer, and one or two others, as well as the single ARC male showing up thus far: Gunnery Sergeant Luther Wilson.

He was wearing camo pattern swim trunks, a towel over his shoulder, shades over his eyes.

He walked to the trunk of the car, popped it open, and extracted a cooler.

"We couldn't turn down an offer to party. Here's some cold drinks, folks. Let's rock it!"

The bald Gunny, usually so straight-laced, is grinning. Apparently he likes a good beach party.

Sucrose
2009-09-02, 10:10 PM
Amaya smiled as she watched the other Arrancar. She was kitted out in a fetching green bikini, and as clad by skin as a normal human (swimsuit on the right, for continuation of a theme (http://img142.imageshack.us/img142/4633/kotetsus.jpg)). She'd just taken her daily medicine, and was feeling great.

For now, she didn't feel like swimming, so she was perched a little ways up the beach, investigating the tide pools. Whenever she found a fish, she would toss it into the ocean.

Zarah
2009-09-02, 10:26 PM
Meanwhile, arriving at the edge of the beach was Masato, wearing dark, baggy shorts and a white tee shirt with a red flame pattern running along the bottom and sleeves. He took a few steps into the sand, scanned the horizon, took note of everyone else, then forced his face into a contorted look of confusion.

"Wait a minute. Wasn't everyone involved in plotlines already? Wasn't I just about to get started with some new enemies? How'd we all end up at the beach all of a sudden?!"

And with that, the fourth wall was no more.

"Naruto and I are very happy, thank you. He unfortunately had patrol duty he couldn't get out of."

Yes. He's a member of 13th Division.:smallamused:

Honokas

Mayu smiles a little nervously at Tai. "Nice to meet you. And we will." Then looks back to Hinata. "...Will you? I suppose... Thank you, Hinata."

Ami cheers as Hinata escorts her off, and indeed builds a sand castle.


Others

Liz smiles as Noriko jumps into the water. She had no doubt Mia was hiding.

The sandcastle built is epic.

As in, Minas Tirith epic.

Natsuko looks at him. She's wearing a blue one-peicer.

Does it matter? IT'S BEACH TIME! SAND!

She runs at the beach, laughing.

Haruna is lying on a towel, wearing a two-piecer.

Ah... surf and sun.

----

Takeshi is lying next to Liz, with board shorts on. Been a while.

His Fraccion are all mucking around.

Daisuke is wearing sunglasses, board shorts, a rash shirt, and is at the bar. :smallamused:

Tyler grins and gives him a good smack on the back.

"Dude. Girls + Swimsuits. Stop complaining. Oh, cool, Americans."

He meanders down the beach as well, starting to chat with some of the ladies of ARC. Who clearly think he's just a cute little thing, what with him being 16, and many of them being several decades older.

Shinigami side

Wolfgang is in wolf form with a blue bandanna wrapped around his neck. He walks with Tyler, obviously bumping up his image with the ARC ladies.

Ami smiles. She used her claws for a lot of the detail. "Did Ami... er, I do a good job?" She looks to Natsuko with a smile. "Hi! I'm Ami! Who are you?"

Arrancar side

Liz holds Takeshi's hand while she relaxes.

KnightDisciple
2009-09-02, 10:53 PM
"I think "good job" might be an understatement, kid. You've definitely inherited artistic ability from your dad. Figures it would be sculpture, though."

Hinata nods in greetings to Natsuko.

Tyler is hamming up the whole "boy and his dog" image thing.

He's promised Wolfgang 3 meals either home cooked or eating out, whatever Wolfgang wants.

Caroline

Among the aforementioned ARC troops was Caroline, who happened to be driving one of the trucks. Practically pushing people out, Caroline drags her own medicine box out as she goes. Sighing a bit at Luther's dramatic display, Caroline shrugs and hurries out to meet anyone there.

She herself is wearing a straw hat with a green ribbon on it and a white thin cotton shirt over this (http://img338.imageshack.us/img338/7814/rukiat.jpg) scaled to Caroline's size and more red than pink.

Libby arrives, via parachute. She's wearing a cute one piece bathing suit that ends in a frilly skirt, camouflage, of course. She pulls up a chair near Tai and relaxes.

Palillo looks toward the water as a half-dozen white tentacles breach the water around Noriko. "It's just like the deep end!"

Shinigami side

Ami smiles even wider. "Really? Yay!"

Katashi and Mayu are cuddling. It's a little weird, given that they probably look like the oldest couple around, with weird shinigami aging rates.

Arrancar side

Lance tilts his head. "Something tells me that it's in my best interest to ignore that instead of jumping in like last time."

Natsuko

I'm Natsuko, a Quincy.

This is an amazing sandcastle!

Haruna

Well, we've got a lot of people here.

Takeshi

Takeshi simply holds Liz's hand. So, who actually found this place?

Daisuke

Daisuke is preparing some... stuff.

{{Callos, we need to figure out what Party Games Tai and Daisuke have planned. PM?

Also, since everyone seems to be doing it: What Natsuko and Haruna are wearing. (http://img20.imageshack.us/img20/9348/nemunanao.jpg) Natsuko is wearing the one-peicer, and Haruna is wearing the bikini.}}

Tai

The captain's one eye opens lazily as a girl parachutes out of the sky to land on the beach before sauntering over to a lounge chair next to her. At first Tai pays Libby no mind, but the sudden ruckus as three cars pile unto the edge of the beach compels her to sit up and cast a glance over at the American.

"You guys ARC then?" She asks gruffly, eying Luther and the other ARC reapers as if sizing up competition before twisting to face Libby. "Get'em to pull the cars back if you can. Stay here, I'll go get us two a drink. You have any preference or should I just use my best judgment?"

With an unsatisfied groan, Tai hauls herself up to her feet and stretches. She hated having to move after a short rest in the shade.

Sabine

The Espada and their fraccion weren't the only arrancar showing up at the beach, but the newest arrival was probably the only one that had showed up with a purpose other then relaxation. A garganta yawns open briefly within the cloaking screen that had been erected to hide the massive reiryoku present, a quiet figure stepping out of the shadows between worlds. A broad sunhat shields her pale face from the harsh sun above, sable hair allowed to hang freely for once instead of being bound up in double buns. Almost all arrancar would recognize the figure of Sabine the tailor, a master craftsman who designed the outfits of the arrancar and Espada, but none would recognize the raven-haired beauty in the decidedly minimal bikini (http://img134.imageshack.us/img134/3889/orihime2.jpg) that she wears with natural elegance and poise. Most of the tightly stretched silk is midnight blue with the flower outlines a much lighter purple tone that accents the blue perfectly, likely another of Sabine's own designs that she was putting to use herself. A heavy looking white bag is slung over one shoulder, the package she had come to deliver.

The woman approaches the changing room that had been set up for the assembled arrancar, knocking lightly on the door's frame to signal her arrival before sticking the bag past the curtain into the change room. It'd be a lie to say Sabine didn't try to get a peek of the occupant within when she did.

"Alicia-chan, I brought your swimsuit like you asked." She says softly, so as to not draw attention to the scene as she sets the bag down and steps back. "Please hurry and try it on! I can't wait to see what you think of it!" Sabine bubbles happily, almost clapping her hands with excitement at how cute Alicia would look in what she had made. Not that Sabine was looking bad herself...

Yes, Sabine can fill out Orihime's bikini quite easily. It's actually a little too small for Sabine, but it's meant to be for effect.

Get me anything. She says, before sending off paper airplanes to the last unfortunate ARC ladies to exit their vehicles to drive them back a bit. Her proficiency with paper airplanes wasn't unusual, she WAS the air force commander after all.

_/_/_/

Thank you, Sabine-San. Alicia says with a genuine smile, taking the package and heading to the changeroom.

...

She emerges later, wearing this:
http://i202.photobucket.com/albums/aa279/oliver426/rect4110.png

Needless to say, she looks embarassed. Next time, she's going to give Sabine a lot more guidelines.

2009-09-03, 01:25 AM
"Heh...sure thing." Tai says simply before strolling away from Libby even as evil evil laughter resounded in her head as she drew closer to the food and drink shack she had set up earlier in the day. Along the way she throws an over-the-head wave to Luther and the other ARC members before grinning widely at Daisuke. "Hey Daisuke-jii, give me a glass of cloudy sake and one from the special jug I brought with me."

Despite the fact he was her superior, something she acknowledged, she still kept that familiar tone with him and even went so far as to call him Grandpa Daisuke. Odd woman.

"Kukuku..that ARC girl won't know what hit her..Thanks for helping out Daisuke. I really do appreciate it." Tai says, turning serious for a moment and giving the older shinigami a nod of her head. "Most commanders wouldn't be caught dead serving food and drink to their subordinates."

---

Sabine waited with baited breath for Alicia to emerge from the changing room, eyes widening when the newly made arrancar finally did and staring open-mouthed at her. Truly it had turned out better then even she had hoped, the woman circling about Alicia to tug various little straps of the outfit into better position for some coverage before giving a nod of her head.

"Juust right." She murmurs.

Right before she abruptly hugs herself to Alicia with the other's face buried in her cleavage as Sabine let out a pleased squeal of delight.

"Ohh, Alicia-chan you look so cute in that! I didn't think I should go so daring at first, but I am so glad I did! It's just tight enough to be sexy but do you notice that it doesn't strain either? I wanted to make sure you didn't have any wardrobe malfunctions by accident but keep the attention of your scruffy friend too." She babbles delightedly, clearly taking great pride in how it had all turned out and never noticing she was accidentally suffocating her model. "He's just going to love this Alicia-chan! I know I do. How do the straps feel? They don't dig in too much, do they? I didn't get a chance for a proper measuring before I had to get to work, I hope it fits right on you. Tell me, how do you like it?"

Marco taps Sabine on the shoulder and coughs quietly, a smirk easily visible on his face. "Her scruffy friend isn't going to be able to appreciate your craftsmanship if you don't let her breath."

Vince, being Vince, is naturally there, playing some Relaxing music (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TVszUBzzPQY&feature=related) on a red beach blanket. His fingers softly strumming over the strings.

He's also the only one with his zanpaktou, but it should be known that it's not very dangerous unreleased.

Kusato is at the edge of the beach, completely buried up to his neck and with a sandcastle on his head, like a sandy hat. He has a pair of binoculars and a small periscope.

I love the beach, he says happily, focusing the binoculars on each woman there in turn. Yes, Kusato is a perv and moderately creepy, this shouldn't really be news to anyone.

He sinks down into the sand, so only the sandcastle on his head is visible. Then, the sandcastle begins to move over the sand, aiming to get closer to the girls.

Mia is in the water, in Ressureccion, her head barely peeking over the water. She's waiting for a chance to have fun at the expense of a fellow.

A shark fin appears behind Mia, cutting through the water. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XLAYvjaGGqM)

Then a pair of arms will attempt to pull her under! ...And into a quick underwater kiss.

Guess who.

Cecilia is skipping stones across the water, blushing furiously and wondering what possessed her to wear such a stupid-looking swimsuit. It's much too small and revealing (http://msp287.photobucket.com/albums/ll153/LieutenantRagnarok/Swimsuits/Swimsuit181.jpg), she thinks to herself. How shameful. If anyone says anything, I'll die of embarrassment.

Greta is sitting on a towel and eating... an ice cream! *dun dun dun* And wearing this (http://media.photobucket.com/image/anime%20swimsuit/GraviMegaFan6/anime_swimsuit_fav1038.jpg).

When she's finished, she stands up and stretches, looking around her. Surf's up, she says simply, and then runs down to the sea, pulling one of her golden earring hoops from her ears. It immediately expands to a much larger size, becoming as large as one of those hoops you spin around your waist, and she begins to surf with one foot planted on either side of the hoop, using the hoop as a makeshift surfboard.

Woooo! she shouts, leaping into the air at the crest of a wave and landing back in the sea, creating a big spray of water that will (for the rules of funny) deluge whichever ninja is meant to be guarding her.

Hinata

"Of course, Ami. And it's nice to meet you, Natsuko. I'm Hinata, a Shinigami."

She smirks a bit at the last part.

She's also the assigned guard to Greta; there's enough Captains and Vice-Captains that Satoshi felt it would be alright. So Hinata probably doesn't get splashed.

Luther

Luther's wandering about, talking and enjoying himself. He does keep one eye on that Tyler kid and his wolf. Then he hears the bit about pulling the cars back.

Quickly jogging over to them, he starts up and backs up each one in turn, until it's not quite on the sand itself. He then jogs over to Tai.

"That fine, Miss....?"

He's clearly unfamiliar with Tai, and trying to find out her name.

Tyler

Seeing Natsuko, Tyler waves to the ARC ladies and wanders over.

"Hey Natsuko. Glad you could make it. And who might the two of you lovely ladies be? I'm Tyler Halstein, the Living Vizard."

He bows.

"Hinata Nobunaga, member of the Second Division of the Gotei 13. I'm pleased to make your acquaintance. I'm also not single"

"....I suppose I am rather obvious, aren't I?"

Noriko

Noriko is lazily floating on her back, having jumped a bit as Mia made herself known, then moved away as Mia's attention went...elsewheres.

Satoshi

Those near the Life Guard station might hear a flutter of towel...

Then suddenly the post is manned by Satoshi.

With a pair of black swim trunks, he all but perched on the seat, his eyes constantly scanning the water for those who might need his services, his strength.

Also, Greta was out there in a swimsuit. So sue the guy.:smallamused:

Damara

Through a combination of bad luck, curiosity, being in the wrong place at the wrong time, and a misplaced sense of chivalry, Damara was roped into doing some of the heavy labor necessary in preparation for the beach party. He discharged his assigned duties well, and is now manning the bar, serving up drinks to anyone that asks. He's wearing dark blue swim trunks and matching surf shirt. A handwritten and surprisingly encompassing menu is taped up on the wall.

Tai looks up at Luther as he jobs over, silent for a moment before grin passes briefly over her face as she waits for the two 'bartenders' to get her drinks.

"No problem Luther. Glad you guys could make it." She says brightly, taking the glasses from Daisuke and giving him a thankful nod before turning to the ARC soldier fully. "I'm Hara Tai, captain of the 7th and president of the SWA. I'm the one who sent you that notice."

It's weird, to those who don't know Tai, it sounded like she was challenging him about the invitation. To those who knew her, she definitely was. Subtle, she is not. "So enjoy yourself on Seireitei's effort eh? Has to be a relief after setting up that base and stuff. Try not to make a mess though, eh? Can't have the mortals knowing what happened here."

With a knowing wink (or maybe she just blinked) Tai gives a nod to Luther and sets out across the sand back to her seat, taking great pleasure in noticing all of the people who had come to attend. Even before she sat down Tai noticed a fellow 11th Division member, before she had been re-assigned anyway, and the Substitute guy who had caused such a ruckus.

"Oi, Cecilia, looking good! Get that butt of yours in gear and come give me hug!" She shouts to the Vice-Captain/Captain before turning an eye unto Masato. "Ryoka! C'mere!"

---

'Hmph'? Oh no! She doesn't like it! I knew I should have made it...

Inner self-deprecation aside, Sabine's head swivels to look at Marco when the other's hand rested on her shoulder then dropped her eyes down to the struggling Alicia.

"Oh my." Was all she could say at first before her cheeks colored red. It certainly felt nice though to have Alicia-chan there though and Sabine had a regretful look on her face as she pried Alicia from against her and gave a sheepish smile. "I'm sorry Alicia-chan, I just get so excited sometimes that I forget myself. I beg your forgiveness for being so familiar."

Marco wasn't exempt from awkward apologies either as the arrancar woman twists to face him, dipping into a shallow bow while chewing on her bottom lip.

"My apologizes too Marco-san, I meant no offense by calling you scruffy. You wear the look very well, I just didn't want to embarrass Alicia-chan or yourself by revealing something that may or mayn not be private."

"I'm Ami!" Ami smiles at Tyler playfully (the innocent kind, you pervs :smalltongue:). "Who's Tyler's friend?" She looks to Wolfgang curiously.

Wolfgang just observes silently.


Arrancar side

Liz eyes Sabine and the mild ruckus she'd created. "Erscheinung-sama, in all likelihood. It was his idea, after all..."

Lance also eyes Sabine. Then looks back to Palillo. "...You open minded?" He grins, without shame!

Caroline

At some point Caroline has dragged her medicine box down closer to the water, opening it and dragging various beach materials out of it including a collapsible beach umbrella and various towels. Then she tosses off the shirt and dives into the water, though she does not go very far into the ocean.

2009-09-03, 12:21 PM
Mia eeps, and she soon breaks the water again (after the kiss) with a tentacle wrapping around Carcharadon to hold him in front of her. "I suspected as much."

Marco waves a hand dismissively. "My primary concern was Alicia bein' able to breath easy."

Palillo glances at Lance, then at Sabine, then at Lance. "Open as a hole!" She grins, without clue!

A certain 4th Squad Captain in an orchid bikini sporting a white bellflower pattern covers Iwai's eyes. "Guess who."

Iwai hums loudly, frowning as his eyes are covered

"Hummmmm.....it couldn't possibly be Taniko. The last time I saw her she wasn't nearly as stunning. So...your a figment of my imagination?"




Kusato is at the edge of the beach, completely buried up to his neck and with a sandcastle on his head, like a sandy hat. He has a pair of binoculars and a small periscope.

I love the beach, he says happily, focusing the binoculars on each woman there in turn. Yes, Kusato is a perv and moderately creepy, this shouldn't really be news to anyone.

He sinks down into the sand, so only the sandcastle on his head is visible. Then, the sandcastle begins to move over the sand, aiming to get closer to the girls.

Edit: BAHHHH missed this

The sand castle explodes into dust as a large beach ball smacks Kusato upside the head

"Your an idiot. Just go hit on someone."

"Wait a minute. Wasn't everyone involved in plotlines already? Wasn't I just about to get started with some new enemies? How'd we all end up at the beach all of a sudden?!"

And with that, the fourth wall was no more.

"Dude, it's the beach episode. Just go with it, and avoid getting hit by the girls too many times." Metta grins, pats Masato on the shoulder, and heads down to the beach proper. He's wearing a pair of black and gray swim trunks with this (http://static.desktopnexus.com/wallpapers/68116-bigthumbnail.jpg) symbol on the side of each leg.

The first customer to the little bar that Damara is running is....his superior officer! :smalltongue:
Koujin will order a long string of items, and hang around until they are ready. He's wearing a standard blueish-gray swimsuit, and has his black hair untied.

Kuenai is sitting under one of the many umbrellas, in a beach chair. She's wearing a green, almost leaf-like (http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3431/3295690559_147117bbdb.jpg) bikini, and a pair of sunglasses (http://images.ifguk.co.uk/products/4671/4671-large1.jpg). At the moment, she's just looking out at the water, or at least seems to be.

Taniko smiles softly, turning a bit red at the compliment. "It seems you aren't very good at these guessing games."

Taniko then signals for Captain Sigmund to remove his hands. Taniko then removes her hands, grinning down at Iwai as she's sitting behind his head. "Enjoying your time at the beach?"

Damara

Damara calmly listens to Koujin's entire order, expression never changing. When it's done, he closes his eyes for a few seconds, thinking. When he opens them again, he immediately begins moving, mixing, pouring, and adding ingredients. His movements are surprisingly showy given his dignified and quiet personality, but his face never changes from its even, emotionless expression, an overall effect that is surprisingly comedic. When he finishes, he puts all the drinks on a tray and hands them to Koujin.

"Enjoy."

After he finishes, he turns and makes a check next to each of the drinks on the menu that Koujin had ordered.

Breathing is always nice. Alicia says, while breathing. She then manages to look at her outfit. Well, it's really nice. And I'm glad you didn't have to get a lot of fabric either. She says, trying to be nice. Why am I her favourite model all of the sudden? She thinks to herself.

Caroline will eventually find Xavier, scuba diving, poking at some small reefs with a stick. He's wearing a wetsuit and has jars at his side, full of odd-looking aquatic invertebrates. He waves to her underwater.

Taniko holds Iwai's arms, her face reddening further for a second before she composes herself. "Covered your eyes pretty much when I showed up. Had to check in with the watchmen before I could come."

Marco smiles as he, too, is able to get a good look at Alicia's outfit. "I couldn't agree more."

Palillo giggles and gives Lance a quick kiss. "You aren't half bad yourself, Silver-san."

Ganurath
2009-09-03, 02:13 PM

What are you doing? Why do you always ruin my fun? I come here to quietly observe the local flora and fauna and you must assume I am ogling over women! Not so! Such a thing is fantastically sick and wrong, brother, and I feel betrayed, nay, wounded, by such accusations coming from you of all people.

He has re-formed his sandcastle hat, though now it's a little lopsided, and he focuses his binoculars on Greta. Ooooh.

The tailor continues to watch Alicia worriedly, wondering if she had caused permanent damage until Alicia spoke up.

"Yes! Your okay! You had me worried there for a second Alicia-chan!" She bubbles once more, clearly in a good mood as she excitedly claps her hands. Course, she hears Lance's remarks and turns a slightly...disdainful eye on him, but she's polite enough not to say anything about it either. Not that she'd ever turn such a harsh look (yeah right) on Palillo-sama.

"...Is Von Geister-sama's head sticking out of the sand?" She asks abruptly, pointing to the spectacle.

Tai

"What? Who are you?" Tai says blankly, looking over the Quincy with her one eye. "You ain't the kid he beat Hideki.."

Then she spies a mystery moving sand-castle and her eye narrows a bit...but she could wait to handle that little problem.

"Cecilia, nice to see you could make it." Tai says cheerfully, giving out one of her patented back-shaking pat on the backs. "Kukuku..I got you to do this cause you keep so clammed up and we both now that! Let loose for once kid, have a good time! Hehe, I'd say let it all hang out but you pretty much are."

That last statement was followed with much howling laughter on Tai's part.

Ami cheers. "Yay! Let's make a big one! Like that!" She points at her other epic sandcastle.

The roar of a motorcycle echoes over a hill as Yumi pulls into a nearby road to park. It was just one of those days she felt like going to the beach. After pulling off her helmet, she remarks at the number of people on the beach below. "Wow, it's a popular beach day!" She unzips her riding suit, revealing her orange two-piece swimsuit (http://i273.photobucket.com/albums/jj223/inventor2x/BleachWomen.jpg). ((Yoruichi's, obviously.))

With that, she takes the beach bag she packed into the back compartment of her bike, and trots down, waving enthusiastically to everyone. "Are you all having a party!? Ohmigawd, that's so cool!" She doesn't seem to recognize the fact that they're all shinigami, and probably put up barriers to keep normal people out. Good thing she's not normal! Or maybe not such a good thing. :smalltongue:

Arrancar Side

A short distance away from the others (likely due to the smell), Marro lay on a towel with his eyes closed as he took in the fresh air. He wore a pair of white trunks, but retained his gray scarf as well.

Sabine

Sabine stares as Von Geister swivels about almost completely submerged in the sand.

"...Erscheinung-sama, isn't that uncomfortable?" She asks plainly, kneeling down in the sand in front of the old Espada's exposed head. "Would you like for me to knit a...blanket or something to keep your eyes out of the sun?"

Ah Sabine, always trying to be useful. Course, maybe she was just trying to keep from staring at Alicia and various other female arrancar so her mind didn't wander on how to 'improve' their swimsuits.

"Are you sure that it is safe? There are...very many shinigami over there."

Tai

The captain waits for Masato to meander over to where she is, taking the chance to pass off the sweating glass to Libby while the new Substitute Shinigami came over.

"You are the ryoka kid, right? The one who fought Hideki Kotetsu?" Tai asks warmly enough, reaching out to give the boy a pat on the shoulder.

"Well. It is a bit restrictive but I have been in worse situations. Not like I can't just glide through the sand anyway."

Von Geister's head sinks, and then appears again, followed by his shoulders, back and the rest of him, as if climbing invisible stairs from within the floor.

Von Geister is wearing white swimming trunks, and is fairly more muscular than expected and his skin is not wrinkled at all.

He does have a huge gaping hole in place of his abdomen, but that is normal.

"And don't worry about the shinigami Sabine my dear, they won't come our way due to the barrier."

"Good! Tai says brightly, giving Masato a pat on the shoulder before lifting her hand off and loudly cracking her knuckles. It'd be easy to catch the sign of violence in her eye. Or the 'wink' that was given to Hideki when she noticed that he was watching.

"I wanted to meet the guy who created anarchy in the Seireitei and crippled my division with work for close to a week." Members of 7th Division would have warned Masato to run at that point. Two were actually frantically waving their arms about trying to get his attention, but by then it was too late for the poor guy.

"Ichi!" Tai's call was abruptly announced when her right fist, a very big fist, pounded into Masato's stomach, doubling him up around it for a brief moment.

"Ni!" Just in time for her left fist to connect with his chin and lift him straight back up into the air with a nice pretty view of the sky.

"San!" Before the back of Tai's left hand connects with a resounding thud with the crown of his head, tilting his head back down to meet the savage grin on the captain's face.

"Ishi!" Her right hand cracked across his cheek, snapping his head to the side almost fast enough to give him whiplash and the unfortunate view that Tai wasn't done with him yet.

"Go!" As Masato discovered when her right hand whips back around, the back of it cracking across his face once more, leaving his face and head in general sore with the beating.

"Rokku!" It was a small mercy when Tai's left hand pounds into his ribs again, at least she was leaving his face alone, to force a battered body to curl up around that rock-hard fist once more.

"Hichi!" The perfect set-up for one last devastating uppercut that lifts Masato off the ground like a piece of drift wood and clicks his teeth together before he falls unto the sand. "Kukuku, Hara Tai Seven-Hit Combo!" She grins savagely, planting a foot on his chest to keep him from getting back up right away.

"That's the price for causing chaos in Seireitei and beating on the Kido Corp brat! Seven hits from the Seventh Division! You ever think about doing it again and I'll snap ya in half!" Tai says, pressing down with her sandal-covered foot as she looms over Masato at her six foot and more height, teeth bared in the savage caricature of a smile, her own eye actually glowing with reishi as the sun turns her into a dark sillhoutte that looms over him. "You got me?"

Yumi shrugs slightly. "I didn't think of it. And I can't get it everywhere by myself..."

Tyler flexs his hands a couple of times, before releasing his power.

"You lot sure know how to make yourselves look as bad as your enemy, that's for sure."

He'll brush past Satoshi and Tai to kneel next to Masato.

"Come on, bud. Let's get you some ice."

He pushes on Tai's foot, intent on freeing his friend, then taking him to the nearby drink stand and getting him some ice, as promised.

Hinata, meanwhile, just shakes her head sadly.

"Way to go, Tai. You put this up as a relaxing day, and go and do this."

She then goes back to helping Ami with her sand castle, keeping one eye on Tai at all times now.

Hideki touches the base of his parasol with one foot, pointing a finger to Tyler.

"Intensify. Hado One, Sho."

Tyler might find the ocean getting strangely closer to him. For such is Hideki's power, to fling the sea at you.

Satoshi intercepts the kido and bats it away. Considering positions, it might well have hit Tai, Tyler, and Masato.

"Stop. Now. All of you."

He's clearly slipping into a bad mood.

(OOC:I'm going to presume Tai does let Masato up pretty quickly.)

Tyler is meanwhile occupied moving Masato into a bench by the drink stand. He then moves inside.

"Ice please! Could I get a bag of ice?"

Iwai should suddenly be caught in the wake of a small wave as Taniko finds out that shunpo works in the water, getting between him and the shore. "And where do you think you're going?"

Mia leans forward a bit, peering toward the couple in the water. Her eyes widen in realization, and she holds Carcharadon so that he's behind her. Whether or not she actually forgot about her hollow hole or is just faking it is anyone's guess.

Palillo glances toward the water, mistaking thinking of her own move rather than Lance's. "Where are we gonna find enough rope?"

Marco rolls his eyes. "I'm a gambler, love. I got lucky is all."

"And you say I lack a sense of humor."

Red Oni and Blue Oni manifest next to Hideki, coming from hell's fire, wearing flowered hawaiian t-shirts, much like Hideki himself is, and sunglasses.

Damn weird sunglasses, considering their many eyes.

"...Not that one." Lance backs up a pit, then starts for a sprint at the water. He jumps and turns in midair, landing on one hand and blasting himself high in the air with a pulse of electricity. He then wraps into a ball.

"ULTRA LIGHTNING DROP CANNONBALL!!!"

The Reaper lands right by Mia and Carcharadon, creating an explosion of water that rocks the sea like a real cannonball. Probably rocks Noriko a fair bit, too.


Liz sputters as the fallout from Lance's "technique" comes down. "...Probably should have expected that of someone in this group."

A muffled "thank you" came from beneath a pack of ice as it covered Masato's face. He said nothing else, however, just keeping a hand open and ready for more ice to be piled on.

"Jealous, Hideki? It doesn't become one of your high station. Surely there's some female out there willing to give you that sort of attention. If nothing else, I'm sure said female might accept monetary compensation."

Mia anchors herself well enough with her tentacles, then glances over her shoulder at Lance. "It seems the Novena wants to play catch..."

There's a blur of sonido as Palillo dodges the falling water, without leaving the sand. She's that fast.

Marco draws off his deck, and a pair of ax blades form in the air to act as umbrellas against the rain for himself and Alicia. "Well, what can I say? I'm really lucky."

"Oh come on, the kid fought Hideki and lived, this should be nothing!" And yet despite her claims, Masato was still laying on the ground after Tai lifts her foot off, causing her to blink in surprise and give him a little nudge. "...Huh. Well, he's fine with me now if he lives...and if he doesn't at least we're by an ocean."

If the idle comment of being tossed in the ocean if he didn't get up didn't get Masato moving, then it was quite likely he is dead. However Tyler's arrival followed by Satoshi's and various comments and she reaches down to pull Masato up to his feet.

"C'mon, he's fine. See?" She says, letting him go. It's not her fault if he fell over again after that. "Just lay him down out of the sun...whatever your name is."

She knew about Masato but not Tyler? Talk about incomplete information. And of course then the Blue-Oni had to go and call her a gorilla.

"What was that?!" She growls, turning a vengeful eye on the creature and advancing menacingly until it was within arm's length. Or rather kick's length. Even without the metal boot she could kick pretty damn hard...as Blue-Oni found out as he rapidly became a twinkling star in the distance after being punted. Tai's attention then turned to Red. "Wanna join him?"

"Hm..I hate to admit it, but ugly might have had a point." Tai muses aloud, rubbing her chin, "Maybe I should have beat up the ryoka kid later instead of doing it here..."

Sabine

Sabine, attention focused on the perpetually creepy Von Geister, didn't notice the incoming cannon ball until the very last second. Dignity went out the window when the arrancar-woman got splashed with the cold ocean water and she let out a shrill scream of surprise as she got up to her feet.

"You...you menace!" The poor woman manages to sputter out, backing away from the ocean's edge and beginning to hunt around without success for a beach towel to dry off with.

"Oh, that's not true Marco. I distinctly remember you coming to my quarters with some sketches on ideas for Alicia-chan's swimsuit. I still have them if you have forgotten. Sketch number three was particularly racy." She speaks up helpfully as she wrings sea-water from her hair. If Sabine thought the current swim suit was okay, then what constituted racy!? Course, Sabine was lying through her teeth to cause a little mischief since the man had never visited her before but she DID have sketches...

Ami waves to Xavier as he emerges from the water.

Yumi rolls over and hugs Tsuo. With her top not tied on. "Thanks, Tsuo-san!" Then she realizes the awkwardness of the position she put Tsuo in. She's slow like that, folks. With that, she pulls back and makes herself semi-decent again by tying up her top. "I'm sorry... I keep forgetting how embarrassing that must be for you and Ran-kun." She scratches her head. And then jumps up. "Well, I'm gonna go say hi to everyone else!"

With that, Yumi heads for the nearest Shinigami. Which pretty much means the first person to respond. "Hi! I'm Watanabe Yumi, Quincy Sniper Extraordinaire!"

Xavier waves back, then turns to look at Caroline.

Tsuo manages not to show any signs of wanting this day to end, though he's certainly thinking it. Also, he doesn't blush or comment on the hug, at this point, anything that Yumi does won't faze him.

Tsuo will stand up and stay at least two metres away behind Yumi. Proper distance to react to anything that might happen and not make it look like he's avoiding her.

"Honestly...it was...mostly Luther."She makes a nod back at the shore to indicate Luther before rolling backwards in the water and floating on her back. "He's...crazy."

"Hey, I have a idea for the party I'd like to talk to you about."

"Woah... Uh, sure." Lance is set upon the shore. He leisurely walks over to Palillo, seeing she's busy talking. He stands behind her and drapes his arms under her own in a sort-of-hug. "Telling your friend about the rope trick, I see?" He's grinning, as usual.

Thank Toho-sama. Liz thinks, getting uncomfortable. "Erm, yes. So, you're 'Silver-san', I understand?"

"Yeah, that's Palillo's nickname for me. Real name is Lance. Nice to meet you."

"Indeed. ...I'll leave you two be." Liz flees the scene before Palillo can start on explaining any other tricks.

"...Huh." Lance shrugs slightly. "Anyway, I've got a message; Tickle-chan is a bit too busy to play catch right now." Finally a chance to use his "talent", after all.

Assuming Kusato wakes back up, the next thing he should see is likely a close-up of Yumi's figure. :smalltongue: "Hey, this guy is unconcious!", she yells to the remainder of the party.

"An idea for the party?" Tai parrots back, a vein visibly throbbing in her forehead when the Blue Oni reappears and passes over a banana to her. Lucky enough that Vince showed to distract her before she could show what unpleasantness could be inflicted on a person/demon with a banana.

Instead she shrugs, lobs the fruit at the offending Blue-Oni and leads Vince down the beach towards the little sea shack that had been constructed.

"Alright, what's the idea?" She says bluntly.

He motions to the bartender with a single hand, ordering a glass of summer brandy, before turning back to the conversation as he speaks.

"To put it bluntly, this party is really just a bunch of kids playing in the sand right now. We need some excitement, some entertainment. Which, as the Self Proclaimed Rocker of the Gotei 13. I'm only so happy to oblige with. The basics of the idea is a band, and I was wondering if you'd approve. Being the organizer and such of all this.

Sabine

It was refreshing to watch everyone having so much fun, or at least that's what Sabine thought anyway, with a little smile on her face as Palillo's and Lance's antics brighten up an already cheerful day. Even Marro-sama had come out to enjoy the sun after all, and it was very rare to even see him.

With everyone out and enjoying themselves, even Sabine could get over her sense of proper decorum (yeah right) and have a good time after making her delivery. Delicately crossing over the rocks to the edge of the bluff overlooking the waves, taking a deep breath as she looks down at the crystal clear blue waters before diving in without much of a splash at all.

Such an incredible view beneath the waves! Even if Carcharadon and Mia were off shore doing...something, Sabine tried to give them privacy and the edge of the barrier a wide berth as she swam. Glistening tendrils began to drift out behind her, connected to her very finger tips, sticky strands that'd snare small fish. Maybe she could start a little fish fry...

"You called me all the way over here for that?" Tai asks, disbelief written across her face, "I already was having a stage built before this party even started, I was going to surprise you."

Mia is dips under the water, noticing Sabine catching fish, and she peeks back out as she flashes a grin at Carcharadon. "Someone's catching fish for a barbacue, it seems."

Palillo is still caught up trying to read 30 minds at once, despite the closest thing she has to telepathic ability being the power to hurt Toho's head with her presence. Not that that isn't a feat in itself, but it's not really applicable.

"Sorry about that, ladies. I tend to be excitable, and I forgot that we were supposed to relax today."

"It's okay. My boyfriend, Naruto, is the same way. I've helped him...reign in...some of his more hot-blooded moments. There are days I wonder how he didn't end up in 11th."

Noriko, meanwhile, has returned to lazily floating on the water, eyes closed, simply enjoying the sun and the surf.

Several brightly colored fish are indeed snared on Sabine's lines, being tugged along helplessly behind her before a shape on the surface catches her eyes. A quick flip down towards the bottom and her 'fishing' lines are attached to a heavy piece of rock so that her catches couldn't swim away. Then...


Then it was time to hunt.

Fitting Music (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZvCI-gNK_y4)

A small bubble popped beside Noriko, nothing too peculiar but it was one of the only precursors of the 'attack' to come as a dark shape began to creep up on the amazon-like arrancar above from the very sea bed below. The shape circles silently and slowly, disturbing the surface not even an inch as it draws closer and closer to the surface.

Soon it's only just underneath of Noriko, almost close enough for a hand to reach out and touch but it pauses and dives once more, turning about just before hitting sand and planting feet on the sea bed. With a strong kick, it jets towards the surface with arms outstretched, moving at incredible before something thuds into the Fraccion's back.

CHIKAN!

Two hands erupt out of the water on either side, crossing over Noriko's arms as they close about the seven-foot tall woman's torso, diving into the gap left by the bikini to grab hold of Noriko's chest as a face nuzzles into her back.

Heaven...it's worth it, no matter what she does! Sabine thinks to herself blissfully as she blatantly gropes the other from underwater while she still could. Chances are, something very bad was about to happen to her.

Noriko had been enjoying a peaceful float on the water.

Had being the key phrase.

First, there was shock.

"Whaa!"

Her arms flailed a bit, lifting her from the water.

Then came recognition.

'Sabine. Should have known.'

Then she heaved a great sigh.

Gently, she slid her arms free, then took hold of Sabine's arms.

"Sabine, what have I told you about this? I appreciate that you find me attractive, but I really was enjoying just floating there. It was peaceful, something I rarely find."

She' standing on the water now, holding the other Arrancar by her wrists at arms length. Her expression isn't so much angry, as it is bemused.

...And more than a bit flushed.

She looks at the other woman, just dangling there.

"Besides, isn't it just a bit public here? If you wanted to grope me....You could have waited for a quieter moment at the palace, and asked."

Her grin is wicked now.

Tyler

Tyler smiles.

"So. Ami. What do you do? I'm guessing you're not a Shinigami just yet. Are you in their training program or something? Or are you like me and Masato and our gang? Mortals who just kind of...got caught up in things."

When Sabine was pulled out of the water, she's noticeably looking a bit sheepish even as she dangles there in front of Noriko. The tailor squirms a bit at first, figuring the Lady of War to be angry for what had happened but the lack of a violent response was...startling.

"Ah heh heh...Sorry Noriko-sama, I was just getting fish at first, honestly, but then I looked up and saw you. She explains, looking embarrassed by her behavior even as she swings a little. "And...haha...I guess you know the rest. I just can't control myself when there's an unsuspecting beautiful woman around."

Okay, maybe she was laying it on a bit thick but she was beginning to really get how bad an idea this had been. Or maybe it hadn't been, Sabine was getting all sorts of mixed signals from Noriko and her confusion showed.

"Er...but Noriko-sama, half of the fun is catching somebody by surprise. My skills would dull if I just asked people...can you put me down please?" She asks meekly.

Palillo shrugs. She, and her player, didn't even notice when Lance picked her up. "Not that I know of, but there have been times where I'm not paying attention, and when I snap out of it I'm missing my pants."

Noriko chuckled and released Sabine.

"It's fine, Sabine. No harm done. And I can understand the thrill of the hunt. Now, if you'll excuse me, I intend to float about lazily for a while."

She then lays back down on the water, floating away after a few moments. She's obviously back to relaxing.

Sabine has indeed stolen Palillo's pants once or twice (to repair them), but mostly it's been the Espada's fault for forgetting to put them on in the first place. Not that Sabine could answer that question, she was busy wondering if her head was gonna get blown off or if she was going to be let go. That question was answered a second later.

"Gah!" She shrieks, abruptly dropped back into the sun-warmed ocean waters once more, remaining below the surface before popping her head up out of the water.

"Noriko-sama! Couldn't you have given me some warning?" Sabine says, dead-panning as she treads water for a moment, shaking her head to get the hair out of her eyes before diving back down to collect her fish lines which had snared another couple fishies.

Mia pretends to drop her guard as she floats around with Carcharadon, but is keeping track of Sabine with pesquisa. No way of knowing whether it's the tentacles warding the tailor off, and there was little harm in changing things so that they were if they weren't.

"Captain Siegfried. She was brought in by Captain Siegfried, and handed to the care of Vice-Captain Xavier, her "Uncle Vee". You helped restrain her before Siegfried took her to Soul Society, as a matter of fact."

"But...That was a little girl! Like, 8 years old! Ami's decidedly not an 8 year....Wait. Ami, you said you "grew up". Just how much "up" was in that growing?"

Noriko opens one eye, giving a grin Carcharadon would be proud of.

Sabine, for whatever reason, kept far away from Mia as the squid-arrancar swam about with the Sixth Espada. That likely had something to do with it. That and Mia's 'father' on the shore, not nearly far enough away for Sabine to feel safe doing something like that.

Nope, she avoided temptation and focused purely on getting more fish, up until she crawled back unto the bluff down by Marro trailing four lines behind her with close to a dozen fish on each line of silk. Looking up, and discovering where she was, Sabine lowers her eyes again quickly before clearing her throat.

"Er...do any of you know how to clean fish? I didn't think about that before catching them..."

Tai wanders over to where Vasae and Yumi are burying Kusato, who appears to be recovering, making a few burbling noises and flailing slightly.

Tai leans over to look intently at Kusato's struggles.

Need a little help? she asks Vasae.

At that moment, Kusato's flailing hand grabs... something. Something very inappropriate. Something very close to Tai's heart.

Grunting with the effort, Kusato uses his new handhold to pull himself up out of the sand and to his feet, where he brushes himself down with his free hand.

He suddenly realises where the other hand is grabbing. He looks up into Tai's eyes.

Yoinks, says Kusato in an alarmed voice, snatching his hand away.

"Ah, crap. No way I'm getting in her way right now."

Callos_DeTerran
2009-09-06, 11:47 AM
It all started fun and games, and then someone had to grope possibly the most violent woman in all of the Seireitei. Not even Satoshi was getting involved in this matter as Kusato hauls himself out of sand with the 'help' of Tai. Such terrible fury in that one eye, one of her own hands snatching Kusato's before he could snatch it back completely. He'd be forced to sit there as she used her other hand to tug the sarashi bandages back into place, trembling with terrible fury at the same time.

"Kusato...I thought Vasae was the foolish one." She growls as she pulls the man full out of the ground with one hand and begins to drag him down to the shore. Sure, he was likely to be struggling but he was still a Vice-Captain and Tai...was well...Tai. Once water lapped at her feet, Tai stopped and raised Kusato high up in the air as if judging the wind before rearing her arm back.

"KUSATO SHURIKEN!"

And with surprising speed, Tai snapped her arm forward and launched Kusato like...well like a shuriken out towards the rocky bluffs so he'd have to walk back after landing in the water. But that wasn't what happened at all...

No, it looked a bit more like Kusato hit a giant invisible bug zapper in mid-air, sparks flying off of him as great white cracks appeared out of nothing as the thrown projectile broke...something. Unlike the original plan, a lightly crisped Kusato fell into the ocean not too far off from shore actually.

People likely didn't notice that though when the air suddenly filled with the reiryoku of five of the Espada and various other arrancars as the other side of the beach became abruptly visible. Oddly, Tai herself didn't seem quite as surprised as everyone else, but she was staring dumb-founded at the other side of the beach.

"What's going on?" Ami looks to Tyler, Hinata, and Satoshi curiously.

Yumi just blinks.

Arrancar side

"...Works for me." Lance shrugs.

Liz smiles slightly at this truce, standing to walk over to Satoshi. "Thank you... I'm glad we can set aside our differences for once..." She bows.

"Well, the Arrancar were hiding, it seems. But it looks like Satoshi negotiated a truce. So...we're still relaxing on the beach, really. Just that there are more people hanging around the beach now."

"Indeed. We just have to make sure not to start fights."

Satoshi stops and turns to face Elizabeth.

"I think we all need at least a day where we don't have any violence in our lives. Besides, it's a beautiful day."

He smiles as he bows to her.

He then walks over to Greta.

"We've a truce today, love. I hope you can help me stay on good behavior."

He gives her a crooked smile at his own words.

Amaya blinks. Looks like things won't get messy today. And Rosemarie-sama looks really happy about it... better not do anything to mess this up. Amaya slowly puts her cleaver away, and goes back to studying the tide pools. Now, however, she's taking more of an effort to see what's going on around her.

Ami smiles. "More people... Yay! Will we have lots of fun?"

Arrancar side

Liz notices Daisuke over by the bar, walking over leisurely after thanking Satoshi. "I'm glad we can see each other again on better terms, Daisuke-kun. As I said to your subordinate, it is a joyous occasion that we can set aside our differences and relax for even one day... How have the years treated you, my old friend?" She smiles.

"Of course we will, Ami. I'm here, you're here. That alone means there's loads of fun."

Hinata narrows her eyes at Tyler.

He gives an innocent smile and scratches the back of his head.

"Seriously though, I'm sure we'll keep having at least as much fun as we have already."

Mia lets out a sigh of relief as the truce is negociated, and slowly starts making toward the shore. Assuming he doesn't object, she'll be dragging Carcharadon along with a tentacle. To clarify, the following question has a teasing tone, likely to distract Carcharadon from the shock of blue hair and/or Shirubaru: "Think you can be a good boy today?"

Palillo is suddenly next to Satoshi. "Does this truce also mean that Silk-chan can't do her grope ambush thing with the Shiny Gummies?"

Marco blinks a few times. Then blinks some more. "Mind if I go catch up with my fellow Bounts, love?"

Taniko perks a brow. "It seems the Espada had the same idea we did, right down to the same beach. This may be a bit awkward for you."

Palillo is suddenly next to Satoshi. "Does this truce also mean that Silk-chan can't do her grope ambush thing with the Shiny Gummies?"

Satoshi's eye twitches a bit. Then, remembering Ami is here as well, he frowns slightly.

"That's exactly what it means."

"I'll pass the word on, Captain Giggles!" Palillo then sonidos over to Sabine. "No touching shinigami fun parts without their permission, or the truce is broken. Mkay?"

Taniko nods, looking over the various Arrancar. She's no longer applying sunblock, but in her absent mindedness is still acting like she is. "See anyone you recognize?"

Von Geister idly eyes the assorted Shinigami, barely acknowledging the exchange between Satoshi and Takeshi.

He wouldn't have raised the barrier if he wanted to bother with combat would he?

Ok, it was flimsy, but the point stands.

"Hmm..."

Von Geister smiles widely upon landing his eyes on the group with Ami building a sand castle.

Ami, Tyler and Hinata (and whoever else might be there) will notice a strange event, as tiny sand people come from inside the castle, pulling tiny sand cannons and tiny sand ballistae. And Aiming at Tyler and Hinata, shooting tiny shells and bolts made of sand.

Pew, pew.

Attempts to stomp the tiny sand people and their tiny war gear will result in... Tiny formless mounds of sand.

Helena walks over to Alicia, wearing a swimsuit similar to Unohana's (too lazy to dig up a picture).

"Want to go see your brother?"

Ami stares in amazement. "Wooow..."

...Yumi also kneels down and stares in amazement. "Wooow..."

"Mother of-!"

Tyler hops back a few feet.

Hinata merely crushes the offending sand people.

"Probably the Cuarta's doing."

Draken

Tiny sand people rush over to the crushed remains and kneel over them, apparently crying.

Just after, numerous tiny sand people with tiny sand swords, shields and spears charge Hinata.

Hinata simply backhands them away.

"You know, he's not half bad at this."

"Shut up, boy."

I- um. Sure. Is Alicia's response to both Marco and Helena.

...

Libby is still asleep. D'awwww.

"Great! Let's move out."

Helena grabs for Alicia's hand and pulls her along.

---

If anyone cares to look, Von Geister is looking towards Ami's group with a hand extended and making gestures that resemble those of a pupeteer, always with the smile.

As for said group. The tiny sand people start to add to the sand castle structure, raising towers, with cannons, and shooting sand at Hinata.

Ami stares in amazement, sticking a finger out for one of the sand people to walk onto. "Who's making the little people?"

Arrancar side

Lance notices Libby. "...Oh, crap." With that, he dives underwater, obviously attempting to hide.

Marco gets up and wanders over to the shinigami side of the pool, looking for any of the Bounts. Spotting Greta, he makes his way over.

Mia watches the sandcastle scene from the water with an amused smirk.

I suppose Xavier is on the beach, as Caroline/Tgva hasn't posted in a while...

Alicia follows Helena, a bit nervous. The last time she saw Xavier she sorta ate a decent amount of his zanpaktou and yelled at him.

Lance! Libby says with excitiment, diving into the water after him.

One of Amaya's glances away from the amazing little ecosystems unfolding in the tide pools around her is blocked by Von Geister. She notes his odd pose, then walks over, and watches him for a little bit. She then begins to imitate his puppeteer actions, glancing over to make sure she's doing it right.

Ganurath
2009-09-06, 09:57 PM
Palillos antennae twitch, and she sonidos into the water behind Lance, drapping her arms over his shoulders before waving to Libby with a victorious grin. She sees an excited girl running after Lance, what's she supposed to think?

Draken

A tiny sand person walks onto Ami's finger, pointing to ol' Von Geister a few feet behind her.

Von Geister notices Amaya and one might almost see a large sweatdrop falling the side of his face.

---

Helena and Alicia should arrive at Xavier and Caroline now, I forgot where they are.

---

Vicenzo and Oscar are next to Sabine, one tending to a firepit and the other polishing a rock slab with his swords.

"Hand over the fish Sabine, I will get 'em clean."

Imhotep is next to Mia and Carcharadon, only eyes, nose and mask remains in the right hand above the water.

"..."

Sandra and Gabrielle remain sunbathing.

Ami looks back to Von Geister and waves, smiling.

Lance, obviously being trapped in the awkward situation by Palillo, waves embarrassingly to Libby. "Uhhh. Hi."

"Most of em...but I really..don't have anything to say to them."
