    Jehoel manages a smile that manages to fall just short of condescending at Masaru's declaration of their relative power levels. The Primera can politely be described as confident. Or outrageously arrogant, it really depends on the describer in question.

    "I have two destinations planned. The first will be short. I already acquired the needed directions."

    Jehoel slides past Masaru and through the doors of the building.

    Ikeda's Spirits

    Jehoel and Masaru's trip takes around ten minutes; Jehoel sets a rather fast walking pace, but it's hardly even noticeable for someone of Masaru's level of fitness. They end up at a liquor store, of all things, just outside of the Seireitei proper. Jehoel pushes through the door in a completely unassuming manner, immediately making a beeline for the proprietor. The store is otherwise empty, due to the recent upheaval.

    "I require a few recommendations..."

    Jehoel completely ignores Masaru as he begins discussing a series of purchases with the owner.

    Suguri instantly straightened up ... and immediately, the momentum of doing so so suddenly caused her to tilt backwards and begin to fall....

    Just then, she felt a gentle but firm hand straightening her up before she so much as had the chance to notice she was going to fall.

    She might just mistake it for her own reflexes kicking in.

    No problem.

    Considering there's probably no "take your daughter to work" day in Seireitei, this might be a tough proposition, but let's discuss it further in OOC.

    I met a girl with a really pensive look. I walk up to her, put a fifty cent coin in her hand, "For your thoughts. I know the going rate is supposed to be one, but I figure you play hardball."

    She gave it back, "Keep it. Pretty sure a guy with your charm can find a way to have them for free anyway."

    "Not by much, no." Ryouma hands in the diary. The calligraphy is absolutely awful; it looks like it was scribbled by a six-year-old. "Mostly it's dreams about bears, and me fightin' em. Either my inner spirit is a bear or I've just been hankering for bear meat lately." Well, there was the dream with the bear cub setting it slightly apart.

    "The food's been nice, but this tent can get a little cramped. I really miss getting my blood pumpin'. Not fightin' anybody or anything in several days makes me antsy."

    "No, but you did try to make out with me a little." He states, deadpan. "Don't worry, I ain't one to take advantage of a drunken woman. It doesn't sit well with me."

    He... doesn't sound drunk. Or maybe he's just one of those weirdly lucid drunks?
    "That is strictly a drunk-me thing to do. I've got no attraction to boys." Pause.

    "I'm gonna stick with what I just said, even if it could be taken entirely the wro-"

    A metallic cough comes from behind Hasunaga as one of the Orchestra steps out of the woodwork (no seriously, where did he come from?), Nocturne emblazoned on his hoodie.

    Spoiler
    Show
    Hasunaga might be able to detect the cloaking Nocturne possesses before he comes out of it.


    Chouko jumps a little. "**** me, what did I tell you about doin' that, Noct?"

    "Apologies, Mother. However the division has need of you, it's been a eventful night."

    "You don't say." Chouko sighs and stands up, stepping past Hasunaga. "You're aight, little dude. Not-so-little dude. Whatever you are." She offers a fistbump.

    "We'll give you a lift back to earth whenever you want, just stop by the division whenever you're done sightseein', and say Takenaka's got your back."

    (Koutetsu Holdings)

    Even in the midst of things being in a somewhat controlled chaos, the Koutetsus have a visitor. Clad in more appropriate shinigami wear, Kobayashi Momoka steps into the lobby of their main holdings with her usual calm demeanor. She walks forth until such a time as she's approached by a vassal or member of the household.

    When she is, she holds a hand up before the man or woman can speak. "I do apologize if I am somewhat late, but I had scheduled a meeting with the gracious lord of this house, Koutetsu Azuma. And I come bearing a gift to begin the lengthy matter of my apologies for missing that appointment." She pulls a bottle of wine from her robes. A rather pricy-looking bottle of wine. She holds it forward. "I assure you, despite the rumors, I purchased this of mine own accounts. Now, I realize I come at a chaotic time, but that perhaps lends even more weight to the importance of my presence. Could I implore that you contact the master immediately?"

    Momoka finds the air in the noble household unusually tense. Worse than during the rebellions, maybe, when the air was more of scorn and frustration instead.

    She is guided by a servant to one of the many waiting rooms of the small palace, and there she waits for at least ten minutes, before Azuma arrives, still fairly short, with his distinctive visor. His manner is more grim that usual as he sits in front of her, across the small table.

    "Speak."

    Hasunaga has no issue with fist-bumping Chouko. She's probably got the hangover of a lifetime right now.

    "Shinigami bigwig, huh? No wonder you had a lot of power to throw around. I get the feeling we'll meet again.

    For the record, I don't mind if you call me an old man. That's what I am even if I don't look it right now."


    Nocturne gets a thumbs-up from Hasunaga, too. Anybody that can sneak around as well as he does deserves his respect. He wasn't all that startled either because he's still a little drunk or because he thought it would be really funny if someone walked in on them right now. "Pleased to make your acquaintance, Noct."

    Momoka stands and bows, setting the wine on the table as she sits. "First of all, I must apologize. I realize I set an appointment to meet with you that I have been woefully tardy for. Other priorities came up, and some of them were decidedly more disruptive than others. In any case, I come because I understand you have in your custody a notable leader of the Rukongai rebellion." She waits for confirmation before continuing.

    "I understand the frustrations you profess towards these people, but especially now, we cannot afford to tear apart. With the Central 46 executed by one of our own Royal Guardsmen, many of the minor noble houses suffering from our previous cataclysmic move, and an impending conflict - whether military or political - with the Royal Guard, I believe as minor as this may seem, that we must think to unifying our populace as best we can. And whether you like it or not, this Kishi you have captured is a figurehead, and as long as you hold her, the rebellion will continue as soon as the people of soul society regain their footing. There have not been any incidents of late, but do you truly believe that it is over?" Again, she waits for confirmation.

    "Now, I am not condoning their actions. But you must understand the frustrations they have. You have done much for Soul Society, that much I will admit. However, you have also paved your way on the backs of the people. You buy up swathes of land to perform destructive experiments. Can you honestly say that you gave every displaced citizen due compensation?" She gives a sigh, and shrug. "I do not wish to chastise you, however. As rational or irrational as these rebels' complaints are, this hostility cannot be truly stifled with violence, but with understanding. I realize you have only acted in your defense to now, but what were your plans were you to acquire a lead on their whereabouts?" Momoka waits for a response calmly, she clearly has her own plans, but she is remarkably casual about this whole thing. Almost as if she has no issue treating Kazuma as an equal.

    (Some Stable)

    "Yeah, don't let the looks fool you, I'm a certified genius up in this ******." Chouko's cold metallic hand bumps against Hasunaga's warm fleshy knuckles. "Takenaka Chouko, captain of the engineering division. And sickest wordsmith in the whole Seireitei."

    Nocturne gives a respectful nod to Hasunaga. "Greetings." He gets the feeling that this guy has probably been lurking around longer, just to make sure Chouko didn't get up to more shenanigans.

    "I had planned to send rain to their crops."

    A deed quite well within the abilities of the noble houses of the seireitei, for sure... Unfortunately, this particular wording fell into severe disuse due to the Kotetsu family itself, who used it as an euphemism for attacking their enemies with their horrific storms of acid and lightning.

    "But the last move saw that plan become superfluous, those dens of rebels we had discovered were shattered by the event, and we can scarcely afford to deal with the remaining territory in such a fashion, it takes time to recover the land after all."

    Although the twisted remains of Kotetsu victims are a famously effective fertilizer.

    "So, what is your proposed plan, miss Kobayashi? I am listening."

    If Hasunaga had noticed Nocturne before this, he sure hadn't made any moves to acknowledge it.

    For a moment, the old teacher thought he'd misheard Chouko. He had no idea how Shinigami got their swords, so he thought she said "swordsmith". But Engineering didn't seem the right fit for someone who made swords.

    "You must be pretty famous too. I don't think I ever met a Shinigami with mechanical augmentations before." Seriously, kid looks straight out of a cyberpunk movie.

"You'll soon find my grandson has a hard time expressing his affection at first. But that isn't his fault, or yours... it's the fault of the environment he grew up in. You'll have to give him time. Try not to resent him for it, okay?"

    I met a girl with a really pensive look. I walk up to her, put a fifty cent coin in her hand, "For your thoughts. I know the going rate is supposed to be one, but I figure you play hardball."

    She gave it back, "Keep it. Pretty sure a guy with your charm can find a way to have them for free anyway."

    Seireitei, Hospital Division

    Sēji sits next to Koutarou's hospital bed, obviously bored. He stands up, and walks around the room to stretch his legs. What follows is a sort of time-lapse as Sēji waits for Koutarou to wake up. He sits down again, check's Koutarou's vital signs, and then leaves, when he comes back, it's with a small pile of books. He plows through two of them before losing patience, and using a modified version of Hado 4: Byakurai, gives him a minor electric shock. He leans forward seeing if Koutarou wakes up

    Later, Ryouma finds himself outside, with the new recruits in a half circle around him and the instructor.

    There is a wagonload of various ropes, steel wire, iron chains and rubber bands nearby. "As you might know, one of the traditional subjects of this Academy is how to fight, subdue and kill Hollows. You will not be doing that in the foreseeable future, but it's a good skill to have. This exercise will demonstrate to you how difficult dealing with a resisting opponent can be."

    The instructor beckons towards Ryouma. "Ryouma-san here has volunteered to be your training partner today. As you can see, he is of quite unusual size. So are most Hollows. Your task is, with the equipment I have provided here", he beckons towards the pile of binding gear, "to, as a group, bind and take him down so he can't move. Any questions?"

    [The training]

    "Yes." Ryouma raises a hand. "How much time do they have to attempt this task, and should I simply keep them from binding me, or am I allowed to hit them back?"

    [The hospital]

    It actually takes quite a while for Koutarou to wake up. Not because the extension of his injuries were that severe (most of the damage Wan Li Lin inflicted was mental after all) but because given similar stays in the past, the doctors were under orders to administer sedatives in the event he came back unconscious.

    After all, the Commander-General was infamous for being a bad patient.

    "SÍji-kun." He acknowledged as he groaned himself awake. "...how long was I out?"

    Sēji groans. "11 hours, 18 minutes and 34 seconds. Before that, I was at work for 9 hours, 52 minutes and 28 seconds. Prior to THAT, I only had 6 hours of sleep."

    Sēji glares at Koutarou. "With all due respect, sir, I'd appreciate it if you didn't get yourself cut up as much. If I understand the situation, the cause of these injuries was a sparring match?"

    Koutarou will probably notice the half-empty mug of coffee in Sēji's lap and the bloodshot look in his eyes.

    [Soul Society]
    Ikeda's Spirits

    Jehoel is in the store for close to thirty minutes, speaking with the proprietor about a large number of different tastes. As far as Masaru can tell, every single one of the bottles Jehoel is purchasing is meant as a gift. Finally, the two come to an agreement, and Jehoel arranges more than forty bottles into a pair of stacked crates. Two more bottles slide into his belt, for whatever reason. Delicately lifting the two crates, Jehoel heads for the door.

    "I may require some assistance with navigation, Captain. My vision is obstructed."

    Cemetery

    The next trip is substantially longer, taking Masaru and Jehoel deep into the Soul Society. In time, however, the two come to the oldest and largest cemetery of the Seireitei. Simple stone graves hundreds or in some cases thousands of years old form a colossal field stretching out nearly to the horizon from the entrance. Jehoel immediately heads for the back of the Cemetery, eventually coming to stand in front of a ancient grave stone that has long since had any markings worn away. Jehoel sets the crates on the ground, and withdraws one of the bottles. He looks at it and the gravestone, before turning back to Masaru.

    "Is it more common practice to leave the bottle sealed, or to pour it out?"

    "Partially untrue." Koutarou replies. "I did have a sparring match, yes, but that was after I confronted the Royal Assassin. The damage from that fight was... significantly more extensive."

    Koutarou groaned a little as he sat up in his bed. "What is the situation?"

    Sēji raises an eyebrow. "The Royal Assassin? I certainly wouldn't recommend fighting him."

    "In regards to your question, the situation is largely unchanged. Masaru tried to start a fight with Jehoel after he brought you in. He followed Jehoel outside the building, and as there has been no large explosions or major property damage since then, I can judge that things have been resolved nonviolently."

    Koutarou perks an eyebrow. "You are honestly not aware I antagonized and fought a member of the Royal Guard? Publicly?" Stupid question.

    "Yes, I'm fairly sure I would have woken to the smell of burning wreckage if they got to fighting. I presume Masaru thought Jehoel was responsible for my being unconscious?"

    "The respective answers to your questions are no and yes. I hear very little of what goes on outside the hospital when I am working."

    Sēji takes another sip of coffee and slumps slightly. "I have a favour to ask you. Simply put, I need a break. I was very close to achieving Bankai when I was forced into the position of Captain. Since then, I've had no time to train whatsoever. This job is driving me stir-crazy. What I'm asking is for a few weeks off, long enough to achieve Bankai, then a mission or two. That's all I ask."
