( action ¤ field )

[ If you're out and about on the fields today, it's quite plausible that you'll encounter both Kirito and Celica partying up and level grinding together. While they do look like they're doing pretty well, on closer inspection it should be rather obvious that they were both new to the game. Regardless, nearing the end of the day, their movements should be a little smoother than before -- that is, if fatigue hadn't taken them yet.

In any case, they do spend most of their day leveling -- however, that isn't to say they won't be taking any breaks. Every so often they can be found by the river resting up. Catch them sometime in the evening, and you may even find Kirito dozing off. ]


( Joint post with [personal profile] elucidator! Order will go you → Kirito → Celica. Feel free to catch them when they're on their multitudes of breaks, or when they're defeating mobs to give them advice or to join up. )

[ the mention of his name causes him to jolt upright from his sleep, but that didn't mean he was 100% awake. as a result, he yawns before sleepily looking around the area. ]

Someone call? [ ... ] It wasn't you.

[ he's not very thorough with his search, settling his gaze on Celica. ]

Over here.

[Did she get the wrong person...? She considers it for only a second before dismissing the idea. No, there's no way. This is definitely the Kirito she knows.]

It's me, Shinon.

[ gaze following hers, he blinks once his eyes land on the other person. there's a few more successive ones after that, but in the end, he'll tilt his head. ]

The name doesn't ring any bells. [ blatantly. ] ... Do I know you from somewhere?

[ he's more awake now that his mind was back to work, fortunately. ]

[...What's going on? He couldn't have forgotten, could he? Her expression is clearly one of utter disbelief.]

...We met in GGO - Gun Gale Online. We were in a tournament together. It wasn't too long ago... don't tell me you forgot.

[She's got a really bad feeling about this, for so many different reasons. Kirito is... here. He shouldn't be here. And he doesn't remember her for some reason?

Please tell her he at least remembers her. Please.

[ upon seeing her expression, he feels bad almost instantaneously. still -- there wasn't much he could do in this situation. his memory wasn't one to fail, normally. ]

I don't recognise that game either, sorry.

[ it was strange, since he was usually so up-to-date with current games and the such. though, he had been stuck in SAO for a while -- enough to make that knowledge practically worthless.

for a moment, he hesitates in asking her his own question; his eyes flashing over to Celica. ... perhaps if he was vague. . . ]


Does Sword Art Online mean anything to you? [ he'll drop it if it doesn't. by answering this question though, it'll at least tell him if she's from his world or not. ]

[Her attention is completely focused on Kirito by now. Sorry Celica ;;

At the question, she gives a nod of her head.

The death game that ten thousand people were trapped in for two years. Everyone has heard of it.

[ it was a little too descriptive for his liking; he would've preferred a yes or no answer — but that worked too, he supposed. while he manages to keep a composed expression, the fact that she was talking about it in present tense... it wasn't hard to put one and one together.

whoever she was, it was likely she must've come from his future. somehow. but the mention of two years...? he had been stuck in it for around that long, and they weren't close to clearing the game just yet. just what had happened?

taking another moment, to regard her more closely. he definitely would've recognised her immediately, judging by her appearance. her seemingly incandescent light blue hair and piercing blue eyes as deep as an ocean all coupled with a cat-like look in general didn't seem easy to forget. ]


I think you must've come from my future somehow. [ insert sheepish laughter ] Because I'm very much still stuck in it. Or at least was — for now, at any rate.

[ he pauses, to shoot an apologetic look at Celica before turning back to Shinon. he feels a little guilty, since she must've felt like a third wheel of some sort. ]

Anyway. This is probably really awkward for you, huh? So... Let's start from the beginning, if you don't mind. [ he stands up from his position to walk over — extending a hand to her. ]

I'm Kirito, and you? [ this part was probably unnecessary but he's dorky like that. ]

Kirito no..........

[personal profile] tank_sniper 2012-08-25 01:44 am (UTC)(link)
Your... future?

[Is that even possible?

Who is she kidding. This place has been bringing people from... well, different worlds at least. She's met hedgehogs turned into people, not to mention the scores of folks who clearly weren't dragged in as any type of online avatar. Somehow or another, this was its own strange world, and it was more than capable of taking people from all over space. So why would time be an issue?

...And yet...

She feels a pain in her chest. If he didn't know her... Never even met her... where did that leave her? After everything that they had gone through together, everything he'd done to help her... This Kirito knew none of that.

...

Still, explaining it wouldn't help here. There was too much, and frankly, there are other things to worry about. Like the fact that he was here of all places. She tries to keep her expression neutral, tries not to let her disappointment show through as she accepts that hand.

I'm Shinon.
elucidator: (023 ¤ you turn away)

it begins

[personal profile] elucidator 2012-08-25 03:54 am (UTC)(link)
[ it's not difficult to guess how she was feeling, and there really wasn't anything he could do besides to try and make it up to her somehow, if she were willing. and so far, it looked like she was -- so Kirito would make sure to not let her down any more than he already had. ]

It's nice to meet you. [ he offers her a grin while firmly shaking her hand. ]

By the way, this— [ he makes a hand gesture towards Celica ] —is Celica, and we've been partying together. You're probably not new like we are though, right?

[ from his observations, she didn't look anything like a newbie would. ]
tank_sniper: (Default)

can't escape Kirito's purple prosing...

[personal profile] tank_sniper 2012-08-25 05:33 am (UTC)(link)
[She gives a nod to Celica, feeling a little bad about ignoring her up until this point.]

I've been here for... [a quick mental calculation] three months now.
elucidator: (096 ¤ don't find me)

crying

[personal profile] elucidator 2012-08-25 06:01 am (UTC)(link)
[ when she nods, Kirito can't help but notice as her sky-shaded hair cascades downwards before it returns back to its original posi...tion...

he's a little curious as to why she's in such a low-levelled field as well, but he'll keep back the question for now. ]


Ah. I see. [ a beat. ] ... That's a long time to be stuck here for.
tank_sniper: (SKILL > Dramatics)

it's like a cycle of horrible

[personal profile] tank_sniper 2012-08-25 07:32 am (UTC)(link)
...It's not that long compared to some.

[It's then that she looks to Celica, her piercing blue eyes staring straight into the woman's own ruby orbs, filled to the brim with surprise and curiosity

ow that hurts to write

*She then turns to Celica, explaining:
]

I don't know how long some of the others have been here, but they were definitely around before I came. And some people have even been here and back twice.
elucidator: (074 ¤ in the past)

oh my god sakfjdskfjd

[personal profile] elucidator 2012-08-28 08:09 am (UTC)(link)
And it still shows no indication of being cleared any time soon.

[ he can't help but think to himself though, that there's at least a steady flow of people coming and going. it didn't possess half as many dangers as SAO did, which was a huge relief. ]
tank_sniper: (SKILL > Dramatics)

I think you mean the best

[personal profile] tank_sniper 2012-08-30 02:42 am (UTC)(link)
You would think that. But from what I can tell so far, there's no main goal to clear. I haven't even heard a hint about a final or ultimate boss.
elucidator: (080 ¤ you know me)

in which best and worst are now synonymous

[personal profile] elucidator 2012-09-06 05:57 am (UTC)(link)
Well, for now...

I guess there isn't much we can do besides grind to the highest level we can. [ he stretches out his limbs, as his mind gets to work. throwing a quick side glance to Celica, it'd probably be best for him to do more of his intel gathering later in the night. ]

[ aaaand then he directing his look over to Shino. ] What are you planning to do from here?
tank_sniper: (Default)

makes sense to me

[personal profile] tank_sniper 2012-09-07 01:07 am (UTC)(link)
[She nods.]

It can't hurt to be strong enough to take on anything they might throw at us.

Anyway, I only came to this field to gather Chim Spheres. I'll probably go back to town and head to a higher level dungeon soon.
elucidator: (075 ¤ when time passes)

shounen protagonists do what they want dwi

[personal profile] elucidator 2012-09-08 06:25 am (UTC)(link)
... Ah. I see. I was wondering what you were doing around here.

[ he notes "Chim Spheres" somewhere in the back of his mind to research more on later. ]

Going to go your way then? [ she didn't seem like the type of person to waste time, but by the same token Kirito did want to get to know her better. alas. he didn't plan on holding her back. ]
