[Event] MIZUSATO SAKURA MATSURI

MIZUSATO SAKURA MATSURI
Week 21, Day 4 - Week 21, Day 5 (April 6-11)




Petals bloom, unfurling on whispering winds, bringing the joy of life renewed across the lands. Spring has arrived in Kannagara, and with it, Konohanasakuya-hime's joy in seeing new life unfurl its delicate strength. Now is the time we in Mizusato rejoice in the goddess’ blessing, for Konohanasakuya-hime has awakened the Spring for us all to enjoy. With her gentle hands, she has brought us a time for new beginnings, so if you would embrace this chance, then join the revelry in Mizusato as the village proudly brings you the traditional Sakura Festival!

For Week 21, days 4 and 5, there will be an optional Sakura Festival in Mizusato, complete with sakura viewing areas between the beach and the village. In almost every village anywhere, this will be the high point of talk between traders and gossip in the street -- everyone will know about it because it's a good season for foreign merchants.

In the opening post for the event, it will be announced that the Elders of Mizusato have approved the construction of a ryokan for other-worlders and are looking for construction volunteers. Mizusato has decided to make their cooperation with other-worlders officially public, openly showing their support in light of the terrible incidents that occurred on the mainland in the past few weeks!

The entire city will be decked in lanterns that depict the shape of sakura blossoms; these will be found hanging outside homes and establishments, all of which will be illuminated at night. Here, traders will be visible selling their goods during the mornings, especially those from other villages dealing in cloth and jewelry. Which definitely means that it won't be an uncommon sight to find the citizens of Mizusato in their yukata and enjoying the festivities -- food stalls, games, plays situated around the square organized by children and the council, flute and drums and shamisen music! You name it, it's there!

What can your characters do?

Anything they want- threadjacking is encouraged, and so is time-paradoxing!. Sub-threads will be provided but players are encouraged to create their own scenarios. For example, under the game threads, players are encouraged to start threads with HEADERS IN CAPS saying, RING TOSS. Be creative! Remember, this is a good opportunity for CR!

Time events!

Day 4 - The opening ceremony will take place at 4 PM in the middle of the square by the head of council of Mizusato. The festivities will then begin right after his speech with a taiko drums performance.

Day 5 - The closing of the festivities will begin at 8 PM, when the fireworks will illuminate the skies of Mizusato for ten minutes over the shoreline. This will be a grand display to the point that people outside the area of Mizusato might just hear and perhaps even catch a glimpse of it if they're lucky!

Throughout the festivities, lanterns will be hung on wooden poles above the water in the shallow areas of the shoreline. Music will be played at all times and festivities can play out till midnight and start again as early as noon again! Food and games will be constant!

Enjoy the festivities, people of Mizusato and her guests!

Re: RING TOSSING
[Well, well. He's seen this face before. Isn't this the helpful young lady who spoke to him on his first day here?

Vincent had wanted to meet her in person. And she just looks so amusing, standing there with that intent look on her little face, so excited about... what's the thing she's waiting for?

Oh, a ring toss game. How pedestrian. But the girl does seem awfully excited about it. Perhaps... he should pretend interest as well? She might know useful things, considering how she approached him, after all.

And getting useful information out of a woman, especially one as plain-looking as this one, is an easy enough matter with flattery.]

Excuse me, young lady...

[He steps up next to her, offers a smile.]

Would you happen to be... Rin?

I thought so!

[She seems almost shy. And well, obviously he startled her a little. He hasn't forgotten her reactions on the Hitomi, and for a second his mind is racing with the question of whether to keep her off balance or try to soothe her.

His smile turns up a little.]

It's nice to meet you in person. I'm not sure if you remember me -

[So humble sounding, as if anyone could really forget him!]

But my name is Vince, and you were very helpful to me the other day.

[He slips off one white glove, neatly and quickly, and holds out the bare hand as if to shake, ruffled sleeve falling back a little.]

[Definitely not nobility, he decides, both from her forthright manner and the fact that she draws her hand back before he can bow over it or kiss it or any other extravagant niceties.

Well, next time perhaps. And it'll seem even more flattering if she isn't used to it. After all, all women want to be fawned over, don't they? Except perhaps the ones too used to that... but he knows how to deal with those too.

For this one, he simply lets his hand drop slowly, as if it doesn't wish to draw away from her, and then leans in a little closer to speak, making sure she understands that every word she says is of utmost importance to him.]

Well, I have to admit it's a far cry from being 'like home'. And my family has moved already since my arrival, so it's a little jarring. But my brother says that this town is the safest, and he has a job here, so hopefully we'll do all right.

So far they've been all right. I've been trying to find my way around - a bit of hunting to help out with finances, I wouldn't want to inconvenience my brother after all -

[Not that Gil has actually seen a penny of that hunting money, but she doesn't have to know that.]

And I've spoken to a few people. It's a very different world from what I'm used to.

[Still smiling, still a little too close.]

Perhaps after you play your game, you could show me around a little? It'd be quite appreciated.

[Excuse him while he tries to gather his broken mind, because shouldn't you be swooning at his feet by now? There's a slight frown for a second, almost petulant, but it's gone quite quickly.

Have a sheepish laugh instead.]

Ah, of course! Perhaps later then... instead, I could buy you a treat? There seem to be a lot of nice sweets and savories both being offered.

[There, that'll work better. Offer something before you ask.]

[Vincent blinks a little, as if honestly surprised. What woman thought of such things?

He might even respect her a little for it, almost. But he's sure she'll ruin it any moment. They always do. And now he has to rethink his strategy again, shift the chess board to a new perspective and try a different view of it, perhaps this piece here instead of there...

Well, perhaps this tactic.]

It's no trouble, my lady. And to be honest...

[He glances around, as if to be sure they're not overheard, his moment of weakness not seen.]

My family is busy, and I don't know anyone else here yet, so I suppose you could say I could use the company.

[He doesn't get it, at all, doesn't understand why she won't accept something from him. But that's all right, because he has his 'yes' either way.

He nods toward the person doing the ring toss in front, realizing her turn is next, and then smiles.]

Looks like you're up next, so how about you impress me with your arm, first, and then we'll go?

[There's laughter in his mismatched eyes and he steps back, folds his arms over his chest playfully, clearly teasing.]

[He watches her, all right. His red-and-gold eyes follow every movement, take in every detail as she sets her stance.

She's not a very womanly woman, not all soft and pretty like the ones he's used to. Not meek like Echo. She doesn't seem to be impressed with him, either, and that irks Vincent in a way that he can't explain.

The nerve of the little bitch.

And then that throw comes out not quite right, but stronger than he'd expected. Not that women can't be strong - he's allied with some, after all! - but still...]

I bet you'll get it next time.

[He watches carefully, honestly expecting her to get it this time. After all, with the look of her, she seems rather... athletic. So he's surprised when she misses again, takes a long look trying to sort out the details of what she's doing wrong.

He could offer advice, perhaps. Definitely won't offer to play the game and get her a prize - he can learn after all, and she quite obviously wouldn't accept such a thing. It's a pity, but he's still thinking she has information and might be a useful ally.

So instead he smiles, offers nothing but further encouragement.]

You'll get it this time!

[There's so much to be told about a person from such minor things. Determination, a youthful quality, a certain amount of focus. Physical things don't seem to come easily to her, and yet she keeps at it, gets it down.

Or so he's thinking so far. Actually, she reminds him a little of Gilbert that way. And he knows without trying it that he could step up to that game and land every ring easily, just like shooting the bulls eye time after time back home. And if his comparison is true, he knows without trying it that it wouldn't go over well.

So he claps his hands excitedly, almost childishly, and keeps on just smiling at her.]

Didn't take long to get it down, did it? Very nicely done, lady!

Re: 3/3
Indeed!

[He offers a smile, holds out his arm, crooked, just as he might to escort a lady.]

Off we go! Have you sampled any of the available goods yet? I wandered by earlier and saw quite a lot of tasty looking things, but I'm afraid I'm not familiar with local cuisine quite yet.

[A laugh, quite easy, self-deprecating.]

I might eat something nasty on accident.
