Well… At least there was a good thing about people being afraid of ghosts. Moriko felt she had a purpose again when she was given a mission she’d be useful for… but at the same time she still didn’t quite like people screaming and running at the sight of her. Oh well, she was assigned to portal the outskirts of the village, so she would give all she had to successfully carry out her task. She knew it was not exactly a good idea to scare the merchants… but she had no real alternative. If any merchants caused any fuss about coming to the village because of a ghost, they could simply fib, say there was no ghost, and guide the merchants there themselves to prove the path was safe once more.

She had tried reasoning with the first few people, but before she could even explain who she was, they had run off screaming, just like some of her friends had… It still kinda stung a bit seeing how Masaru looked at her when she turned into her ghost costume… but she knew he felt bad about it, it wasn’t really his fault he was scared of ghosts right? She hoped they’d get past it once things were normal again.

She had come to expect the fear from people but then there was this one man… very rude, ignored the fact she was there and kept heading towards the village, royally pissing off the girl until she finally snapped at him in all her… ghostilyness… and making the man turn heel and running away… Since him, she knew she’d had no real choice but to use their fear against them.

Moriko didn’t want to be feared… but at the same time the only things she can do other than scare people was chuck a rock at them, or hope they’d listen to her. Throwing a rock was not exactly an ANBU worthy defense, and talking didn’t work very well as it seemed, both of them were off the table. So scaring it was. It’s not like she needed to sleep anyways…

Without her body Moriko was unable to use force, jutsu, or really anything else. It dragged her down a bit, but really, she found a place to be useful instead of a moping specter. She might as well make the best of it. That was getting her through this whole ordeal, forcing herself to keep her chin up.

Honestly if anyone should have been stuck as a ghost, it should have been Wakana, Moriko was pretty sure her roommate would have found joy in this.

The more Moriko used her intelligence to make up for her lack of a body, she could admit it had forced her to become a bit more creative with traps, reading people and manipulation. As much as she disliked the situation… psychologically it was a bit fascinating…

She found that her humming seemed to carry across the trees, it seemed to set the tone for anyone coming her way. She’d drift between the trees, just humming a slow tone, no particular song. Just experimenting to see how it affected the people she needed to scare off. The slower and sadder the melody, the more often she’d notice the hair on the back of someone’s neck rise. Without noticing their own actions, they steadily start to seem insecure; they’d look around, and shift uncomfortably. Automatically be put on the defensive as they either speed up or slow down, their heart rate rising steadily. And this was all done only by humming a few notes out of sight. This was only the beginning of Moriko’s technique.

Since she needed to focus and use her energy to be for others to see her, it was quiet simple for Moriko to approach the travelers or merchants that were approaching the outskirts of the village. Without being seen she’d just causally touch a hand, a shoulder, and if she was feeling a bit bold, the neck or cheek. Her icy touch would startle the person. Some would jump, or yell, their heart pounding, the fight or flight reflex kicking in as adrenaline is introduced to their system.

They’d look around for the source of the touch, and she’d just coolly touch another part of them, causing another shout. She found building it up slowly brought the affect that she wanted. That effect being of course for them to turn tail and run. The closer they got to the outskirts, the more Moriko interacted with them, sometimes she’d knock their things over, and other times she’d speak, letting them believe some disembodied voice was warning them to leave. Really anything to let them know she was there… and it’ll only get worse the further they traveled. She had only shown herself to the brave few who believed they could ignore her antics. She’d make herself look pissed and terrifying just to close the deal, and as expected, they would turn and run. She followed them until they were a good distance away.

Actually… this could turn into a nicely done genjutsu. Nice and passive, enough to shake her opponent, without the need to cause harm, but of course being able to modify it to do so if needed... Would do well for an escape or to plant a trap while they are occupied.

Honestly why they were so petrified of her only left Moriko guessing. It’s not like she could actually DO anything to them.

Oh well, as long as it yielded results she shouldn’t complain. Since if they didn’t turn back she wasn’t doing her job. Moriko only assumed her technique worked since it played on humanity’s fear of the unknown, which was the only logical explanation. Although, fooling travelers was one thing… Fooling shinobi was an entirely different category…

Moriko pondered on it, she could have Wakana help her develop this idea she had for a genjutsu… there was no harm in seeing if she can Narashi’s advice on it, and he would possibly be inclined to help her if it interested him… The question was would she end up testing it on some unsuspecting friend?

While she did not like being a ghost… She had to admit this was turning into a unique learning experience. Moriko would kill for some mochi and being able to sleep in her own bed though.

Overall Moriko just wanted to be able to feel again. She missed her body, she missed being able to sleep. The good ache of a job well done after training. When she was alone out here in the forest, it killed her to not be able to feel a thing, not be able to smell anything. The silence in her nightmares lapped against the back of her mind, and she found herself feeling lonelier than ever. She was getting to the point she was looking forward to people to chase away, just to be able to have some interaction.

With a deep breath, Moriko raised her chin. No, she would get through this, this was just a phase. Everything will be sorted out and she'll have her body back soon.

“I’m going to get through this,” she sternly told herself. She will continue to will herself into existence until they had sorted everything out.

No ifs, ands, or buts about it.

HSV: Stay Out...
OCTOBER : Being the "eyes of the village," the ANBU are needed on the outskirts of the village. Make sure that no one gets in or out of the village while things are being taken care of.  Write or draw about your OC on the outskirts and what activity could be happening.

Words: 1226

For those that don't remember, Moriko was a White Lady for the Halloween arch :iconmingplz: or well a type of ghost. So here she is trying to be useful by patrolling the outskirts. At least she's trying to make the best of the situation.

Sunday I put an offer in on a 1 bedroom condo in the neighborhood I was dying to get a place in. It's in walking distance to everything I'll ever need owo [i.e. a Wawa, a book store, a pet store, a liquor store, and a food store!]

Monday they accepted the offer.

Wednesday the Home Inspector gave the place an A-Okay.

Next Tuesday I have a meeting to get financials all sorted for the mortgage .

September 30th is the closing date :iconhappytearsplz:

I'm so beyond happy right now, this is what I've been hoping for for years! It's half of what I was expecting to pay for and being a huge huge watcher/fan of HGTV and DIY network I'm so beyond excited it needs updating! [God I'm such a nerd :iconotlplz: ]

The place was build in the 1970's... and it stayed there :iconmingplz: All the appliances are original, everything is original [but in working order!]. I want to modernize it and make a lovely condo-wide theme using my display weapons and my fantasy statues, you know to show off my nerdiness owo

But what does this mean for everyone here?

Well I'll probably drop off the map to get the renovations done during October, but I don't believe it'd take any longer then 2 weeks unless financials delay my work. It's a small space, but it's my space, and that's all I care about right now!

For now I'm catching up on messages, and writing. I have a few projects in the works, some will and some won't be posted here ^^

As for any one that wants to chat,  please poke me, I'm in so many group chats and they are pretty active, so it's hard to keep track! @_@

So if you want to talk just poke me here or on skype! After the Condo is situated I'm probably gonna be active again... at least I hope too~

See now, this was the part of the exam Kou was a bit nervous about. The actual test.

Usually the test was the first thing in the exams, testing their knowledge before testing their skills, but this time they flopped it. If Kou was the paranoid type, he’d think it was just because he was in these exams, but he’s not, so such a thought didn’t grace his mind.

Instead he stared at the blank side of the test paper and wondered if this was it for him. If all this effort would be thwarted by a simple written test. Kou was a doer, not an…. explainer?

What kind of questions would be on the other side of this parchment? What kind of technical answers would he need to explain fully so the examiners would realize he knew what he was talking about?

He twiddled his thumbs slightly as he waited for the signal to start the test from the proctor. His nervousness was subtle, yet obvious to those that knew him. The way his ocean blue eyes glanced around, from the time, to the door, and back to the piece of paper that would decide his fate. Finally the proctor looked at the chunin hopefuls and explained the rules.

“Okay there will be three questions on your paper, you only need to choose one and answer it.”

Oh okay, just one of the questions? That didn’t seem so bad, Kou released the breath he had been holding. Just one question, but they’ll probably be looking for a quality answer, so he wasn’t feeling too confident just yet.

The proctor continued, “no cheating off your classmates and don’t think I won’t notice,” he looked at all the genin with a serious look. “With that… you can begin.”

With a deep breath and a hopeful heart Kou flipped the page over and looked at the three questions. He read the first one thoroughly:

‘1. You have come up against an earth style long range weapons shinobi in combat. Describe how you would defeat this opponent.

Kou stared at the question, hmm, well he could think of how to do that, but he scratched his head a bit, not sure if he could quiet explain his thought process. Maybe he could word the answer to the second question better.

‘2. State the path you would most like to join. Discuss the traits and skills you believe one must possess to be in said path and why you would be a good fit for that division.’

Kou simply stared at the second question. Was this really something he could answer for his test? Explaining why he would make a good priest and why he wanted to be one?

It can’t be this simple, but here the question was, as plain as day. He just had to explain his choice of path.

Kou grinned, confidence flowing once more as his pencil scribbled excitedly against the parchment, completely disregarding there was a third option. He knew what he wanted and precisely how to explain it.

‘As it’s commonly known the Byakko clan is infamous for becoming priests, but my choice in my path has nothing to do with the fact that my last name is Byakko. Being a priest is something I know I’ll choose no matter if my last name was Byakko, Fujihara, Medo, Warashi, or even if I wasn’t a part of any of the clans. Being a priest I feel is what I was born to be.

I believe priests should be selfless and live their lives to aid others, none of the spells they learn are for self-gain, nor should they believe the spells could be used for themselves. Priests are spiritual protectors, healers, bringers of all kinds of fortune. They need to study hard to learn the spells correctly. They need to have an open heart, and be glad to assist where they can.

As for me, I’ve always been a very spiritual person, I’ve always been very aware of the auras that surround our world, I’ve always been fascinated by the spells and rituals the Priests of our villages can perform. Uniting two lives together in marriage, telling fortunes, casting spells of luck, fertility spells, exorcisms… I can list everything I would be able to accomplish once I master the Priest path, but you know all of the responsibilities as much as I do. 

It’s one of the harder paths, I know I’ll have to go away for a bit to train, and they’ll only take the most devote, but… well why I want to be a priest. I guess it boils down to is a priest’s duties are more to the public, their job is to make everyone happy, healthy and safe. All of the paths make our village safe really when it boils down to it, but I want to have those spiritual abilities, to improve the quality of others’ lives with my spells and rituals. That is what priests live for, for others, for all the villagers in HeartShrine.

All my life, what has made me feel whole was bringing smiles to the faces of others, to be able to improve the quality of their lives in one way or another. I guess until now I just wasn’t sure if I was ready to accept the responsibilities of the priesthood… But now I know I can.”

Kou took a deep breath and put the pencil down after pouring all his thoughts and feelings into that question. Would his cousins Kanmuri be reading this? In truth Kou secretly hoped so. He really felt she’d be proud to read what he wrote. Not for their clan, Kou felt no real devotion to the Byakko other than Kanmuri, but he wanted her to feel pride towards him as a person and of his growth.

Finally a smile came on his face as he nodded at the writing, feeling it was complete enough to get a job well done, he stood up and crossed the classroom, putting the paper on the proctor’s desk, only waiting for a dismissive nod from the man before waltzing out the door.

This was it, he was finally done the exams, all that was left to do now was to wait for the results and hope that his best was enough.

Kou glanced at the clouds as he walked out of the building, hands in his pockets waiting for Reika to finish so they could get a celebratory lunch.

He grinned a bit to himself.

No, he knew he had to have done enough, he will become a priest and bring a smile to those that seeked him out. That he was confident of.

It was just a matter of if his best was enough for this round. He felt confident in his efforts of course, but it wasn’t up to him to decide.

Everything was said and done, so now it was a waiting game for the results.  

HSV - Kou's reasons for Priesthood
Omg finally done ;w; I hope my baby graduates~~

You see when I made Kou about... like 1-2 years ago I knew I'd make him a priest, mostly because I noticed the lack of priests in the village, and it seemed like a fasinating path, so I sat there thinking 'well why the hell not I'll make a priest' so him explaining why he wanted to be a priest was something I knew Kou could write about on his exam sheet like no tomorrow, he could chat your ear off about the preisthood. Kou just knows the priesthood is alot of responsibilities so thats why he's been procrastinating on being a chunin because he wasn't sure if he was ready for that yet, but now he's sure :iconbiggrinplz:

Kou Byakko for Priesthood everyone! :iconherotimeplz:

Hi hi everyone!

I've been MIA/non responsive, even on skype [which is a first to me and I feel bad] so I'm just going to give you a brief explanation.

Work is stressful

Home is stressful

My co-worker has decided she doesn't like me so she demeans me, doesn't work so I have to do it and picks on me when my boss isn't around, and when my boss is again she digs into me then tell him she's just being playful. I'm on the verge of quitting because when I've tried to stand up for myself or tried to tell him whats happening, I'm made out to be the bad guy and I don't deserve to be treated like that.

Home is... well... I need to move out... and I'm seeing a silver lining... so I just need to hope the right house comes along soon. Home is much much more personal so I'm not going to go into it here

So the stress has made me a bit slow, but I'm looking into ways to be a freelancer and make money online since thats what my end goal is, work from home, get a few books published and have enough money for what I need, so thats consuming my time too.

This week I'm on a MUCH needed vacation with my family on the beach. We've been here since Saturday and I'm feeling so much more like my old self. I'll be active more after dinner during this week if I don't go out with the 'adults' and do something.

Miss you guys!
