  1. Anyone else might have been put off by this woman's strange mannerisms -- the way she called him cub, or the air that circulated about her like a timid storm that was about to become a hurricane -- but Junnosuke was not. Well, not entirely. There were many people in the slums who seemed a bit off whether it be due to mental illness or an inherent eccentricity, so he'd grown up around it and to him, it was just a different type of normal. He finished shaking her hand without issue. The folded paper, however, was neatly tucked back into his pouch immediately. By the time he'd looked back up Tenri was on the move, motioning for the young cub himself to follow along. And like a cub, his ears were trained on the sound of her voice, listening as she spoke about the underground fighting and the history of the criminal organizations. Though he had only been a kid and not exactly a part of anyone's inner circle, he knew all too well the lengths that people involved with the syndicates were willing to go to to be on top. Betrayal, sabotage, removal of another party entirely; Junnosuke wasn't sure about thieves, but he was certain of the fact that there had been little honor, if any, among criminals like his father when it came to getting what they wanted. Money was a given, but more often than not it was power and status; earning respect through fear and wresting the authority to enforce it. "Brawler's Cove... I can't say I have, though as far as the underground goes I've been out of the loop for quite a while," he said sheepishly as he jogged up alongside her. "Even when I was in it, I wasn't really in it." It had thankfully been a longer time than he'd expected since he'd had anything to do with that world and those types of people, and so he wasn't quite as aware of the goings on as he had once been -- not that he was very aware in the first place. He was grateful that his return would see him on the opposite side of things. "Besides, I sort of get the feeling that a place like that may have been above the slums. I can't imagine the syndicates would send just anyone to represent their interests in a place like that." "Still, I'm surprised they were able to adhere to any sort of moral code, if you can even call it that." He shrugged and laughed, the smile that accompanied only widening with Tenri's wink. The barest hint of a blush was visible on his cheeks, and though he was highly aware of its existence he hadn't the faintest clue as to why it was there. "But anyways," he said, clearing his throat when the words didn't come out all too well, "if you're positive that that's where we'll find them, I'll trust your instinct. It'll be interesting to see, at the very least." The deftness with which she cut Junn's headband away surprised him more than the act itself. She was quick, and it seemed rather accurate with a knife -- he hadn't even had time to begin undoing it himself. "I could have just taken it off," he said with an awkward laugh. "I know you see me as a... Cub, right? But they didn't let me become a ninja because I was incapable." He grinned reassuringly as he helped to cover the pieces of cloth and metal in the sand. "Plus, you did just tell me quite a thorough history of Brawler's Cove, I'd assumed they wouldn't take too kindly to ninja," he added with a wink of his own. Once they were sufficiently covered and in a place where they wouldn't have difficulty retrieving them, Junn set off under the assumption that Tenri would come along. He pointed himself in the direction of a majority of sand dunes, but stopped when he realized something very important -- he had no idea where this place was, or even how to find it. He quickly turned back to Tenri and cocked his head to the side. "Soooooo," he began, squinting playfully. "You seem to know a bunch about this place, eh?" He stepped closer, cursing the sand that worked its way into his sandals despite his best efforts. "I won't ask how... Yet, anyway. But I feel like you probably know where it is and what the best way to get there is, so instead of making myself look foolish by trying to find it myself, I think I'm going to defer to you." The admittedly long winded combination of question and declaration ended with a playful and incredibly ironic bow. "So, if you would be so kind...?" he asked after a brief moment, rising back up to his full height. "Perhaps we can talk a bit on the way. Come up with a strategy, get to know each other, build up some of that spirit of team work," he said, another sheepish smile plastered across his face. _______________________________________________________ WC: 600 + 847 = 1447 (damn, so close to 1337)

  3. It's parts 1 and 2 for the doppelganger series Kazuo had the first mission description, and then after we'd completed the first he posted the second missions description. Sorry for the confusion! I just realized I forgot to put that they were plot missions in the overview, that's completely my bad. Sorry Akane D:
  4. At first, Junnosuke had thought the woman was speaking to another person, but as he glanced around he realized that her words must be directed towards him -- there was nobody else around save for a handful of guards, and they were definitely out of earshot. He surmised that she was likely the shinobi he had been paired with. "Oh, hello!" he exclaimed. His smile was so large that his eyes were forced into a squint, so for a brief moment it was difficult to actually make out the woman's features. "It's nice to meet you, I'm Junn -- Junn Shimizu!" He extended his hand towards her in greeting, letting the smile a bit loose so that his eyes blue-grey could open. "What's your name?" As he spoke, he examined her face, wondering if she might be someone that he recognized. She was certainly attractive, but what most caught his eye was the quality of her hair; even with the wind whipping around, he thought it very lovely. As another gust blew past, he raked his free hand through his own tresses to mitigate whatever messiness the wind might have caused. Perhaps she could give him a couple of tips sometime. The same hand reached back into his pouch to pull out the report he'd been given, and present it to his comrade neatly folded. "These are the mission details in case you haven't seen them yet. It shouldn't be too difficult of a mission, they were able to take out the guards but it's not like they maimed them. I figure the hardest part will be tracking them down!" He smiled even as he spoke, and he began to wonder if he was maybe a bit too eager to do well. As of yet, the only friend he'd made was Kazuo and the two had spoken in several days. "So, shall we head out and start looking?" _________________________________ WC: 286 + 314 = 600/1000

Mission Name | Bandit DuoMission Type | Water VillageRanking | BRepeatable? | YesMission NPCs | 2 C Rank banditsMission Description | There are two bandits who have camped out on the Mizumura Coast. One bandit is strong in Taijutsu, the other is strong in Bukijutsu. Locate them and defeat them before they can stage any more robberies.Word Count | 1000 WordsRequirements | N/A @Tenri __________________________ "I suppose a B Ranked mission is as good a way to get to know a person as any other," Junnosuke said to himself. His eyes skimmed over the briefing as he stood, waiting with his ever present smile. It had been made known to the village proper that two bandits had taken up residence -- if it could be called that -- somewhere along the coast of Mizumura. There had been a string of robberies going up and down the shoreline, and until recently there had been no witnesses. The most recent burglary, however, had taken place much closer to the bridge than any of the others had. "Must have gotten cocky, or maybe they wanted a bit of excitement," Junn mused. Whatever the reason, they had been careless enough that the guards were alerted and a group was sent to investigate. They were, unfortunately, dispatched quite easily. Still, the descriptions they provided were extremely valuable, as was the knowledge that the assailants were capable of taking out the village guards. They were two figures of equal height. One fought with a series of strikes throws while the other made use of a variety of weapons. Their genders were unknown, but that didn't matter much -- a criminal was a criminal, after all. The only real thing they had had to go on as far as identifying them was that the taijutsu fighter had had long hair that brushed against the struck-down guards, and the bukijutsu user had mainly utilized small, hard to see darts. It certainly wasn't the most information to go on, but at least it would give Junnosuke and his partner something to start with. All he had to do now was to wait for her. _______________________________ WC: 286/1000

It was full of clutter and waste the likes of which he had never seen, even back in the slums. "No wonder there's so much stuff frozen over outside -- there was no room left in here for it," he thought. Junmuzi had already taken to laying on a couch pressed against the far wall of the first room, which seemed to serve as a living room area. It was dark in the room, so as Junnosuke approached to enter he made to turn them on and lighten things up a bit. "No, leave them," Junmuzi moaned out. He had become much less enthusiastic and energized rather suddenly -- perhaps he'd taken the medicine and it caused him to be lethargic? He didn't know enough about the subject to make anywhere near an educated guess. ~WIP~
  10. Mission Name | Deliver The Meds |M1| Mission Type | Village Ranking | D Repeatable? | Yes Mission NPCs | N/A Mission Description | Deliver the meds safely to Junmuzi he lives at Yugetsu Outpost. Word Count | 500 Words Requirements | N/A _____________________________ The wound on Junnosuke's back had healed quite nicely over the last week. Thanks to the quick work of a very kind medical ninja called Kaori, his wound had been cleaned and bandaged expertly. She'd even given him a bit of ointment that had sped up the healing process, and it appeared that for once in his life there would be no scarring. As thanks, he had returned to the hospital earlier to see if she could use an extra pair of hands for the day. He initially thought that he might be her assistant and follow her around to different patients, but she had instead given him an assignment that would take him to the Yugetsu Outpost. He was to visit an old man called Junmuzi and bring a prescription that he absolutely had to have; he had forgotten to take it with him after his appointment the previous day. It wasn't exactly a long trip from the clinic to his home, but Kaori couldn't just up and leave as she had patients. It turned out that Junnosuke's arrival had been incredibly fortuitous. She was quick to hand him the medicine and to send him off with a handful of directions. "Trust me, you can't miss it," she had told him. He set off expecting to return to the clinic by the end of the afternoon, but his day would not be entirely within his control. As he got closer to the outpost, he became thankful that a jacket was one of the common articles of clothing he wore; the tundra was labeled as such for a reason. The cold was harsh and the winds were unforgiving. Junn couldn't help but wonder why an old man who required so much medicine would remain where there was so much ice and snow instead of move into the village proper. It was then that he came upon what he could only assume was Junmuzi's home. It was modest like many of the other homesteads he had seen in the area, but there was a great deal of clutter and frozen over waste in the yard. At least half of the items bore the symbol of the hospital. With medicine in hand and a shiver in his bones he approached the home and knocked at the door. "Hello? I'm a shinobi from Mizumura, I was asked to bring you the medicine that Kaori had prescribed for you!" Junnosuke yelled, attempting to make his voice heard over the whipping winds. He waited with his back pressed into the wall beside the door to avoid the quickly flying pieces of ice and snow, and he couldn't help but wonder if his mother had run into the arms of his father just because she didn't want to continue living in a place like this. The door opened a crack and a single eye looked out at the shinobi, though much below his own eye level. "Yes, yes, come in! Come in my boy!" He ushered Junnosuke into the ramshackle dwelling and closed the door behind, piling several books and a chair. "Oh... To keep the door from being thrown open by the wind, that's all!" he cackled after catching the ninja's odd expression. "Oh, sure," Junn laughed heartily. "Well I probably shouldn't stay too long, I just came to get these meds to you and -" "Oh but you must stay! The storm is getting angrier so it won't be safe for a few hours, plus I rarely ever get company!" Junmuzi looked up at him with pleading, desperate eyes and a hopeful smile that, regardless of the weather, Junn didn't have the heart to refuse. He nodded and raked a hand through his hair. "Plus, I could use some help around the house, eh!?" __________________________________________ Word Count: 629/500

  12. Junnosuke couldn't help but nod in agreement. He didn't feel bad either, though he still had qualms about how the situation had gone down. A lot of it could have been avoided if he'd just paid a little more attention and been more aware of his surroundings. Maybe Kazuo wouldn't have found himself in a position where he felt he had to do what he had done. "Yeah, thank you. We'll be sure to do that... Oh! I should probably grab my knives," he said. He jogged back into the shop to retrieve them, and by the time he had come back out Kazuo had already gone. "Oh." He was surprised, but he could also empathize. It was a heavy situation and he hadn't exactly been supportive of Kazuo's actions. He could very much understand the need to be alone for a little while.

  13. Yeah, I definitely see your points. I hadn't considered a lot of that. Alrighty, I made a few edits that are hopefully more on the right track?
  14. I mean, it isn't paralysis though? They aren't unable to move their arms or legs, it's just a restraint. Handcuffs, essentially. And no, they wouldn't be able to just say "Oh, it's been two posts I think I'll extend it longer." It's something that has to be done when the seal is placed, they can't just extend it afterwards. That's why I said it could be done "upon the placing of the seal". I mean I can change the distance to touch if that would be an improvement. I just figured it's something that has to be done extremely up close so it's not like it's easy to land.
  15. My first invention. Plz bare with me if it's awful and unbalanced haha
