Reunion and Time Traveling Finale

Who: Everyone!
What: The time-traveling group returns to find an invasion of newcomers.
When: November 20th and Onward
Where: Luceti enclosure
Summary: Who let all these New Feathers in here!? ...Wait, that guy's familiar...
Rating: May vary, as usual high ratings should be taken elsewhere

The adventure to the past is over; the villagers have all been sent home to their own time. But things are different. The changes of the past have echoed into the future. And the world has responded in the strangest way. Why are so many people here all of a sudden? And why are their memories such a mess?

Who really knows?

SOMEWHERE OVER THE RAINBOW

[As he passes by House 20, Kushina is just closing the door behind her so she spots some skinny guy that can't be Shikamaru walking by. That's the Nara clansmen hairdo though. He's always been a bit slight but even she can tell from here that he's just skin and bones. She's no medic, but last she saw him he was fine and he shouldn't look like that in just a few days.

And walking so slow. She furrows her brow.]


Shikamaru! I hope you're not starving yourself for some reason! Because that would be stupid, ya know!

[If he glances over, she's crossing her arms but looks pretty concerned. Then, without invitation, she walks over. Upon closer inspection he isn't just skinny. He looks awful. Full Concern Mode.]

Te... what's wrong? What happened? Are you alright? You're not really starving yourself, are you?

ARE THERE SKITTLES THERE

[personal profile] endgames 2014-11-24 12:49 am (UTC)(link)
Whoa, Kushina-san.

[??? First Ino, now Kushina? JUST HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE BACK. Man if he had known she were around he wouldn't have stopped here, he took the backroads to avoid people he knew for the most part... too bad I knew.]

That's not it at all. You got the wrong idea. [Shaking off his bewilderment, as Kushina approaches he waves a hand as if to ward her questions off.] When did you even get back?

oNLY THE SOUR ONES

[personal profile] fervidity 2014-11-24 12:55 am (UTC)(link)
[WOW SCREW YOU TOO SHIKAMARU. Here she is, worried!

She stops and blinks at him. Then narrows her eyes a little. First Lee was being confusing and acting weird when he busted in on her earlier in the afternoon, now Shikamaru is implying she went somewhere?]


I'll answer that if you tell me why you look like you haven't had a decent meal or bath in a few days.

[There isn't really a thing she can answer with but look she's stubborn. And worried!!]
endgames: (Default)

--I ACTUALLY LIKE THOSE, SO THAT'S COOL

[personal profile] endgames 2014-11-24 01:16 am (UTC)(link)
[HE KNOWS, THAT'S THE PROBLEM. HE CAN'T TAKE PEOPLE FUSSING OVER HIM, IT MAKES HIM FEEL BAD AND WANT TO PROMISE HE WON'T DO THE THING AGAIN EVEN THOUGH THIS TIME IT WASN'T EVEN HIS FAULT. And moms are just the worse, even when they're not his mom. :c

But okay. Since he's not getting out of this, he'll just describe the situation quickly! And make it sound less bad than it was. So for that reason he speaks plainly.]


A tree tried to eat me.

[Because that makes sense.]

THATS WHY I LIKE U PI

[personal profile] fervidity 2014-11-24 01:23 am (UTC)(link)
[BUT SHE'S A MOM HE MUST TAKE IT. At least he won't have to take punches or yelling like Naruto does. Not yet, anyway.

It makes zero sense, but he says it so bluntly that she stares blankly. Then she looks over her shoulder at the forest and back to Shikamaru.

Tried and nearly succeeded?]


... Weren't you nominated to be Jounin?

[A TREE GOT THE BEST OF HIM?]
endgames: (mendokuse)

HAVE I MENTIONED HOW GLAD I AM THAT YOU'RE BACK, BY THE WAY

[personal profile] endgames 2014-11-24 01:41 am (UTC)(link)
[SOB. He speaks under his breath, shoulders slumped.]

It could happen to anyone...

[Trees and wood are stronger than anything in the ninja world, don't you know. Fuck steel man, Hashirama's got mahogany.]
Edited 2014-11-24 01:43 (UTC)

<33333 I AM SO GLAD TO BE BACK WITH YOU GUYSSSS FOR A BIT

[personal profile] fervidity 2014-11-24 01:52 am (UTC)(link)
[When Kushina pictures a tree eating Shikamaru though it has a mouth and everything. Thing is, trees don't move so it would have been easy to evade for someone who was nominated Jounin.

Seriously.]


I'll keep an eye out for hungry trees then.

[You're still looking MIGHTY THIN though, Shikamaru.]

Since you answered my question, I'll answer yours. Or I would... if I went anywhere. Weird thing is, Lee said the same thing to me. I thought he might have trained too hard but-

[Shikamaru do you even train]

Am I missing something? Are you trying to play a prank on me again? You know, I haven't forgotten the Lightning Round.
endgames: (Really)

[personal profile] endgames 2014-11-24 01:58 am (UTC)(link)
[SHE BOUGHT IT. Oh man, someday he's going to have to introduce her to Rin.

Unaware of the insinuations she's making against his manly always off-screen training regimen, Shikamaru snickers.]


I remember that. That was fun. [For him. 8Db Tho okay more serious:] But no, I promise this isn't a prank. You don't remember leaving Luceti at all then?

[personal profile] fervidity 2014-11-24 02:08 am (UTC)(link)
[SHE DIDN'T BUY IT ARE YOU KIDDING. And she met Rin, she played a prank on him many times and almost convinced him guys could get pregnant or something...]

Fun for you. I had to take a test.

[Well. Maybe it was a little fun. Tests just aren't her strong point. Besides, she got him back for it later by nearly burying the front register in every plastic bag she could get her hands on. This all with the help of Naruto. Since he worked there.

YEAH MORE SERIOUSLY:]


I didn't leave.

[It's as plainly answered as he had earlier. Shikamaru knows a LOT about this world though. She tacks on a:]

Wouldn't I remember leaving?
endgames: (Suspicious)

[personal profile] endgames 2014-11-24 02:14 am (UTC)(link)
[So she just bought that a plain old tree could beat him then, wowowowow. Rin's fair game to make fun of though, that's always fun.]

Not always. No one remembers things when they go back. [And she kinda goes back to dying, but he leaves that bit out.] Every time I've gone, I never realized I was absent until I got back here. But I always did realize it.

[Which isn't actually a jab at her. Things are very strange right now, and while he's made sense of some of it, other parts aren't meshing as cleanly together.]

Do you remember the Malnosso, or the war with the Cultists in this world?

[personal profile] fervidity 2014-11-24 02:26 am (UTC)(link)
[HE SAID IT and he has the skinny body that's swimming in baggy clothes. Maybe the tree ate his chakra but still ITS A TREE...

Either way, her eyes narrow a little.]


Malnosso?

[That's a strange name, first of all. But now she's trying to remember and it makes her head hurt. She doesn't want to believe she actually left and doesn't remember. That Shikamaru is throwing out these names just because he feels like it. Prank or not, it's unsettling to be told you left somewhere without you knowing. Her fingers press to her temple.

War. Cultists. The reason she didn't mind this place is because there was no war. The reason she didn't fight as hard as she would if there was a war going on. If anything, this place was weird but not bad.]


I didn't hear about any sort of war. Not since I've been here.

... What about Naruto? And Minato? What about everyone else in Luceti?

[personal profile] endgames 2014-11-24 02:47 am (UTC)(link)
[YEAH but it's somehow less insulting when you buy that the tree was alive and had mouths or something, gosh. :T

But oh crap, now he's made her worry about other things.]


I don't... [There's a knot in his brow. Are they still here? Is Naruto? Something in his stomach tightens. If Naruto's here, he wants to find him.] I don't know. You're getting ahead of me.

[personal profile] fervidity 2014-12-02 08:27 pm (UTC)(link)
[BUT IT CAN'T MOVE.

In any case, he's made her worry but before her memory was tampered with and she's been made to believe this place is peaceful she worried a lot. Maybe as much as Minato did. Maybe.

She stares hard for a second, frowning, but then sighs and fists her hands at her hips again.]


Yeah. Sorry. You're probably still dealing with being eaten by a tree.

[She has a feeling it's something else. Something to do with the reason he's asking about Malnosso and Cultists, but she will refer to it as such because Shikamaru doesn't want to tell her for some reason. Maybe she can get it out of someone else. Or she just needs to make him relax.]

It looks like you haven't eaten anything for a while though. Want to come in?

[She thumbs over her shoulder at House 20 looking the same as it did when all 3 of them lived there.]
endgames: (Enough)

[personal profile] endgames 2014-12-03 07:43 am (UTC)(link)
That'd be nice, actually. [He makes to stand, albeit slowly.] Thank you.

[If they're going to have a long discussion or three, it's probably best to have it inside.]
fervidity: DO NOT TAKE ICON!!! (calm→ i'm his mother)

[personal profile] fervidity 2014-12-03 04:53 pm (UTC)(link)
We'll get you healthy looking again.

[She grabs his arm and helps him up easily since she's not bones and skin. Then she's leading him back to the house, opening the door for him and toeing her shoes off.]

Have a seat wherever you like, okay? I'll get started on making something.

[And maybe Lee stocked their fridge while he cleaned too because even if they were gone for months there is fresh food in there for her to make something up with. He's probably going to get a full course meal because Kushina. She has her little blue apron on and is hovering over the stove when she talks again.]

You know, I've never heard of the Malnosso before... but that word isn't completely unfamiliar to me. Who are they?
endgames: (curious)

[personal profile] endgames 2014-12-03 11:02 pm (UTC)(link)
[Maybe Shikamaru will tell her he's not actually malnourished later (or is he... his whole health situation right now is weird man). For now he actually is hungry, though, so it can't hurt.

What's more he's distracted by all the food she has in the house. Maybe Lee did it or maybe he didn't - he has no way of knowing that, so it has him wondering if Kushina isn't just remembering she never left, but really hadn't in this altered timeline. It makes him look about the rest of the house from where he took a seat at the table, looking for furniture and belongings - signs this place is still lived in.]


In the version of events that I remember, they're the organization that keep things running in this place.
fervidity: DO NOT TAKE ICON!!! (calm→ huh?)

[personal profile] fervidity 2014-12-03 11:26 pm (UTC)(link)
[NOT FOR LONG.

His manner of speech is easier to swallow this time because of the way he words it. What he remembers. She puts the lid on a pot to the rice and looks into another pan with a furrowed brow. The organization that keeps things running, huh?

She knows it's not those people here.

If anything, all of Kushina's cookware is still around too. The potted plants are still green, the curtains still drawn to let in sunlight. While she's waiting for things to cook at the stove, she brings over some tea and cookies, setting them down in front of Shikamaru so he's not empty-handed forever.]


Here, I guess it's the WTF [not What The Fuck.] that takes care of the big stuff in this world. It's short for World of Their Future. You should know that though, since you're one of the people that told me about them when I first got here. Actually, we were just talking about you giving me that test and the Lightning Round. The questions were about the WTF and other things in this world. Not to mention, Lee... he was saying some weird stuff too before I ran into you.

About not saying goodbye.
endgames: (Easy-going)

1/3

[personal profile] endgames 2014-12-03 11:54 pm (UTC)(link)
[Tea and cookies. Could Kushina be any more mom like? If Naruto is, in fact, still here, he's glad Kushina is as well. It might be bittersweet, but Naruto deserves as many chances as he can get to experience the loving family he was denied.

Shikamaru nods his thanks to her, taking a bite from a cookie just as Kushina launches into her explanation.

Here, I guess it's the WTF...]
endgames: (ooc)

2/3

[personal profile] endgames 2014-12-03 11:55 pm (UTC)(link)
[Aaaand nearly spits the cookie out.

SERIOUSLY. THAT'S SERIOUSLY WHAT THEY CALLED IT.

He makes some kind of strangled, half laughing sound, before raising his fist to his mouth. Gotta be polite. Don't spit the cookie. Chew chew.]
endgames: (Onigiri)

[personal profile] endgames 2014-12-03 11:56 pm (UTC)(link)
[It's short for World of Their Future.

Oh okay, that makes more sense. Their future, huh? If that's a reference to who he thinks it is, if anything that might actually be sweet. He nods along, following the rest of the explanation-- and honing in on Kushina's perceived memories of them. He keeps his hand up and mouth covered as he talks, to not be rude.]


Lee remembers things the way I do. [He hasn't actually spoken with him yet, but that's the way it has to be. Everyone he's met today who also went to the past seems to recall things the way he experienced them.] I don't think that's gonna change.

But don't worry about missing anything. [Finished chewing, he lowers his hand.] I don't remember telling you those things, but whatever I said and the way you recall things? That's the true history.

[Or so it is, as of now.]
fervidity: DO NOT TAKE ICON!!! (calm→ special chakra)

[personal profile] fervidity 2014-12-04 12:14 am (UTC)(link)
[SHE DOESN'T GET IT. SHE DOESN'T GET YOU KIDS' NEWFANGLED LINGO. She kind of blinks at Shikamaru's choking/laughing since she doesn't think anything was funny in there. Did the cookie taste bad?]

Er.

[He seems okay, at least. She gives him one more concerned look before shuffling back to the stove to finish the food she's making. Which is actually onigiri with plums and meat in the middle. She talks above the sound of pans being scraped with a spatula or something sizzling.]

Yeah. Okay.

[Don't worry, he says. It's a little late for that.]

Doesn't make sense. [Now she mumbles it a little.]

By the way, don't choke when there's tea right in front of you. If you do, I'm just going to hit your back really hard. [HER FORM OF CPR. She probably had to use it on Naruto a few times THAT BOY DOES NOT CHEW HIS FOOD]
endgames: Please don't take! (do the dew)

[personal profile] endgames 2014-12-04 12:19 am (UTC)(link)
[He knows it can't make sense, he has more to explain! But it's better to do these things in little doses.]

Point taken, point taken. I don't wanna be in any more pain... [He reaches for the teacup, sipping from it dutifully before he continues.] This is good.
fervidity: (happy→ yay food)

[personal profile] fervidity 2014-12-04 12:27 am (UTC)(link)
[HER BRAIN IS GONNA FRY LIKE THE FOOD SHE'S MAKING JUST DUNK HER HEAD IN THE OIL

He's in pain, huh? Well, it's a good thing she brought him inside to give him some rest. Some good warm food. Mom food.

But aw. He gets a grin.]


Thanks. There's more to come. I hope you like onigiri.
endgames: (the clouds beckon)

[personal profile] endgames 2014-12-04 12:45 am (UTC)(link)
Don't think I've met anyone who doesn't. [Even his lazyass could make it for a snack as a kid. It should be easy to digest too, so that's a plus.]

But anyways, to go back to what I was saying... Well you know how time already works strange here, right?
fervidity: (calm→ whats over there)

[personal profile] fervidity 2014-12-04 01:10 am (UTC)(link)
Good.

[She's a mom Shika pls. She knows how to take care of you chillins

There's a pause as she keeps cooking but eventually:]


Yeah, I think. About going home and how nothing has changed when you do, like time has paused. Something like that anyway.

[RIGHT? THAT HASN'T CHANGED TOO? What is this timespace stuff talk to Minato about that nonsense]
