Title: Post-Battle Introductions

After the Dezome-shiki, Endo and Kyouka make more proper introductions.


Kyouka Okazaki, Endo Naoki


Chofu Suburban District

OOC - IC Date:

August 25, 2022 - Wednesday, Jan 06, 2016

<Pose Tracker> Kyouka Okazaki [Juuban Public School (10)] has posed.

Kyouka's fancy strategy didn't seem to phase the ogre at all, so she decides to just go back to basics. She crouches, a Midchildan spell circle (in light purple) appearing at her feet as she and Strike Wolf charge a super jump--only this one is directed forward--she releases it, and surges right for the ogre's chest right after Fate and Endo attack the ogre's legs, plowing into the beast with a fearsome kick. The ogre stumbles, falls, and Kyouka pushes off, performing a high, elegant backflip as she narrowly dodges Yumi's attack.

She lands, in a perfect 3-point crouch as she watches the ogre disappate, and, blessedly, the street be all cleaned up and everything repaired. She exchanges a few brief words with Fate and Yumi--mostly pleasantries--but hey're both soon off to check on Mikoto and the other civilians, leaving her alone with just Endo.

There's a bit of an awkward silence on her part as she looks over to you. She's pretty sure that she recognizes you, but then again... magic is weird and she doesn't understand it fully yet. There's also...

"Soo.... is... that it? We beat the monster and now... we're done?" She looks around, a bit awkwardly. She doesn't have to say it, but it's clear she hasn't done this before. She's also not keen on just, running off to untransform, and have to be two awkward exits she's made from conversations with her schoolmate.

<Pose Tracker> Endo Naoki [Juuban Public School (12)] has posed.

With the ogre defeated, Endo has time for some breathing room. After his final slash he lets his weapon fall to his side, relieving himself of some of the weight of the blade by letting its end rest against the ground. After a brief scan of the street and confused crowds, he decides it might be time to go.

Kyouka's question gives him a short pause, and he nods. "Let's get off the street so the parade can come back--and people don't stare." He makes a short gesture toward a small apartment building nearby before lifting off, soaring gently through the air until he he touches down on the natural habitat of all magical girls: the roof.

He remains in his barrier jacket for now, presumably because it'll be easier to leave his new perch when he needs to later. Also in case there are any further threats, which he does a brief scan for.

<Pose Tracker> Kyouka Okazaki [Juuban Public School (10)] has posed.

Kyouka scans the area when Endo does, and is about to wonder if she should follow you--but when you gesture for her to follow along, it's a bit of a relief. Easier to get the invitation than assume one. "Right, good idea," she responds to the notion of people staring.; Only, when you take off... she instead takes off sprinting.

When she approaches near the appartment she crouches for the briefest of moments, her and Strike Wolf activating a much faster version of her super jump from earlier. They spring for the wall, then start running up it until reaching the roof, where Kyouka grabs the edge so she can pivot over the lip to stand on the roof proper.

She turns to look over at the view of the area--it really is amazing just how fast everything got cleaned up. "You'd never know there'd been a fight at all..." she observes quietly, as if this were still new to her. (Which, to be fair, it absolutely is.)

<Pose Tracker> Endo Naoki [Juuban Public School (12)] has posed.

Endo plants Fallen Stern in the concrete roof, letting the sword rest against a nearby cooling unit. He peeks over the edge and watches Kyouka follow suit, leaping up along the edge of the building before hoisting herself up. He gives a short nod when she joins him, offering the girl a brief smile.

"You can't fly?" He asks, adding, "Don't worry, it took me a long time to get the hang of it too." He seems decently adept at it nowthough his movement is nowhere close to the agile maneuvers pulled out by Fate.

"And-yeah. It's usually like that." He notes in response to her observation of the battleground below. "Most of the time." A nod. "Thanks for all the help too, that was a tough one, I've never fought an ogre before."

<Pose Tracker> Kyouka Okazaki [Juuban Public School (10)] has posed.

Kyouka offers a nod back, but there's a slight blush when you ask about the flying. "Yeaaah, haven't... exactly figured that out yet. I, uh... do a lot of parkour, so I think all of that just comes way more naturally to me, you know?" She did seem pretty graceful and rehearsed getting up onto the building, at least. "I feel like I'll get it one of these days. Probably."

She nods a bit as you confirm that it is, in fact, how things usually go, and again when you thank her for the help. She gives you a light chuckle as she says, "I mean, I've never fought one before either, so that makes two of us. I'm just glad I was able to hold my own out there, you know?" She looks back down to the ground below. "I'm really glad we got to that woman in time," she says quietly. "We've been training, but it's always a bit dicey until you can put it to use for real."

Then she looks back to you again. "Sooo... pretty safe to say those rumors weren't about Sailor V now, I think..."

<Pose Tracker> Endo Naoki [Juuban Public School (12)] has posed.

"It just came to me one day, so Im sure you'll get it." Endo laughs, scratching his head. "It took a long time, so dont feel bad. I used to just jump around too"

He considers a moment, before replying, "Yeah, that was a good catch. I dont think anyone got hurt, so everything turned out okay. Except the ogre, I guess. He got hurt a lot, but I guess he had it coming." A somber nod follows.

"Oh, right," Endo adds, "I guess you were talking about the real thing. And you have a device, too! Its nice to see a friendly one" Endo pauses, scrutinizing the girl across from him before asking: "So, are you an alien too? You dont know Lera Camry, do you?"

<Pose Tracker> Kyouka Okazaki [Juuban Public School (10)] has posed.

She nods a bit, giving you a bit of a wider smile as you mention that nobody got hurt. "Yeah... seems that way. I guess that's the important thing, huh? Saved some people, beat an agre... I guess that's the life of a magical girl, huh?" Then she looks you over for a moment. "Or is it magical boy in your case? Not that I want to assume..."

She nods a bit in response to the statement about the rumor. "Yeah, it... well, I saved a girl's life, went to check on her the next day, didn't realize she'd completely forget about the event, and... then she started spreading rumors. I've... been trying to just downplay it as best as I can. It's hard enough being a new transfer student without a weird rumor following you around."

"Oh! Yes, I guess we never got to properly finish our introductions, huh?" Unless you make a motion to stop her, she holds up her gauntlet in front of her chest so Strike WOlf is clearly in view. "You already know me, and this is..."

The device picks up with, <Strike Wolf.>

And when you comment about 'friendly' devices, she cringes a little. "Yeah, I heard about that. Annnd I know the face coverings aren't exactly the most popular fashion statement at the moment. I'm working on it."

And then you ask her that. "Wait, what? Oh! No, no. I'm a regular ol' human." She gives you a scrutinizing in return. "... what about you?" When you mention that name, though, "Oh, isn't that--" she catches herself just in time. "No, I've never met her. But I thought I heard the name somewhere." She has no idea who knows who.

Oh this is going to get annoyingly complicated quickly.

<Pose Tracker> Endo Naoki [Juuban Public School (12)] has posed.

"There are a few magical boys. Not too many, I guess. It's an exclusive club." Endo notes. "Most people know Tuxedo Mask, he throws the roses. I don't throw things though. Maybe if I tossed Stern around I'd be more popular..."

<DO NOT THROW ME.> The device warbles.

"Anyway. I'm not an alien either. Though I guess that's what an alien would say" Endo ruminates on this for a second, but gives a helpless shrug of his shoulders afterward. He points toward his weapon afterward, adding: "This is Fallen Stern."


"Stern is a Belkan device. Which is a different kind of alien than some other kinds. It's kind of complicated." Endo frowns as he decides how to explain it. "Like, Lera's from Midchilda, and so is Fate, but then Lera's girlfriend is from somewhere else, and the Wolkenritter are from Belka, back when it was a placewhich it isn't anymore, because it exploded, I think?"

"But, anyway, it's nice to meet you again. We'll have to introduce you to everyone sometime, there's a lot of us."

<Pose Tracker> Kyouka Okazaki [Juuban Public School (10)] has posed.

"He throws roses?" she asks, skeptically. Then she pauses. "Nevermind, I just fought an ogre with a witch and alien magical devices. That's not the weirdest thing I've heard since moving here."

She laughs a little when Fallen Stern objects to being thrown. "I don't normally throw stuff either. Though I did pick up a few knife throwing tricks once in one of the places I moved to once..." Thankfully, Strike Wolf is a gauntlet and thus not really throwable.

She shrugs a little when you say an alien would claim to be human. "I mean, at this point I'm willing to accept almost anything." Then when you introduce Fallen Stern she gives him a light bow. "It's nice to meet you, Fallen Stern."

"Right... is that why your magic looked... triangly? I've been told my device is Midchildan and Strike Wolf agrees, but he didn't know what Belka was."


She seems to follow all of that explanation without issue, until you get to-- "Wolkenritter? Who are they?"

"Yes, nice meeting you, too. Sorry if I was kind of cagey before. This is all... really new still, and I've gotten several warnings now that not everyone I meet is trustworthy, soo... yeah. I would love some more introductions. Is there like, a chapter meeting I can attend, or something? So I don't have to keep going through this whole song and dance of meeting new magical people?"

<Pose Tracker> Endo Naoki [Juuban Public School (12)] has posed.

"Right." Endo agrees. "Belkan magic does triangles. They're the most powerful shape." He seems fairly convinced of this.

"Oh, the Wolkenritter are, well, guardian programs that came from a book. The book tried to eat reality, but it got better." Endo recounts this as casually as one can talk about the end of existence.

"We don't really have a weekly meeting or anything," Endo continues on the top of meeting magical people, "But, us device users all know each other, so maybe we could all get together sometime. As for everyone else, we could put the word out. News can travel kind of fast, if you pass it around."

Endo takes a glance back down toward the street, observing the returning crowds and traffic. "Being careful is a good idea. There's a lot of us out there who're good guys though, so don't worry about being alone. I remember I thought I was, when I first got Stern. But we're all in this together."

<Pose Tracker> Kyouka Okazaki [Juuban Public School (10)] has posed.

Kyouka lets your claims of shape superiority slide for now, since she honestly has no way to objectively verify that at the moment.

It's the next thing that needs more scrutiny. "... Guardian programs... from a book... that tried to..." There's a good few moments of silence before she responds, "Okay, I'm sorry, I know I just said I'm willing to accept almost anything, but... what?" To herself she mutters, "And here I thought my biggest problems fitting in were going to be not knowing anythinga bout anime."

No weekly meetings. Well that'd be too easy, Kyouka supposes. "Yeah, I met Fate a few days ago. Was kinda hoping to talk to her some more, but... good luck catching up to that girl, right? But yeah, I wouldn't mind meeting more device users. Might help me figure out how to work with Strike Wolf a bit better, you know?" She nods when you mention putting the word out. "Sure. Didn't think making friends in Japan would involve 'joining a sorority of magic users' but... guess that's just life, sometimes."

She turns to watch the crowds returning when you do, smiling faintly at the way life can resume as normal. "Yeah. AFter finding Strike Wolf I was kind of low key freaking out a bit... But then I met a few people, and today, we all just... kinda came together even though we didn't all know each other. That's kinda nice, in its own way. Minus the stuff with the Ogre."

<Pose Tracker> Endo Naoki [Juuban Public School (12)] has posed.

"I guess it hasn't been that long since Stern and I met, but a lot of stuff has happened. Like the book, and other things. We can tell you about it later, it's not really that important now." Endo offers a bright smile. "Just worry about whatever's in front of you. Like ogres, and stuff."

"And yeah, it's important to get to know your device. You're a team, so you'll only get stronger as you learn to work together." Endo seems adamant about that, as grouchy as his own device tends to be. "Me and Stern have been through a lot together."

With another glance down at the street Endo adds: "I think everything's safe here. So, I guess it's time to go." He makes a short gesture, pointing into the distance. "I usually just find a quiet place to go back to normal. Oh, and I'll give you my phone number after, just in case. Maybe we can all get together at Midori-ya later, it's a bakery nearby."

<Pose Tracker> Kyouka Okazaki [Juuban Public School (10)] has posed.

"It's... been about 2 and a half weeks since I rescued Strike Wolf," Kyouka admits. "And I only moved to Japan a couple months ago, so... this has all been a lot to take in." She nods a bit, "Yeah, that sounds like the way to go, for now."

She grins a little when you mention being a team with your device. "Yeah..." She looks down to the device on her gauntlet. Of course, her device has some other issues she's been unable to figure out yet, but she doesn't feel like getting into that at the moment. "Actually, speaking of learning to work together better... Iiiii don't suppose I could interest you in a spar sometime?" she asks with an admittedly eager grin.

She nods when you mention everything is fine. "Guess I'll trust your judgement, then. And yeah, I'd like that," she says of exchanging phone numbers. "Lead the way... when I'm doing my training at night I usually just transform in the woods near my house, but that's a bit far away at the moment."

"Oooh, sure! I've been trying to check out as many new places as I can, and I don't think I've visited that one yet!"

<Pose Tracker> Endo Naoki [Juuban Public School (12)] has posed.

"Spar?" Endo asks. "Yeah, we could do that sometime. Nanoha and Fate train a lot, you can ask them too." He grins, adding, "Just don't punch too hard!"

"Alright," Endo decides. "Let's go!" And then he's off, snatching up his device before he drops off the opposite side of the building. He drifts low, heading toward a quiet alley in the residential district to revert back to normal. He'll exchange numbers after, as well as directions to Nanoha's bakery, parting with a cheery wave afterward.
