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!

[Lenalee jolts, caught in her own thoughts enough to have missed moving out of her way, had Rin not caught herself.]

Ah, Rin.

[She smiles, happy to see her again. For all that Rin's apparent resignation to this place had struck Lenalee the wrong way, she has always genuinely liked Rin, and the more she thinks about it the less she can ignore the fact that her own way of coping with this world simply is not working. Does she really have room to judge?]

It's been a while. Are you enjoying the festival?

[Though Lenalee has been keeping to herself lately, she is a social being at heart. It is the people around her that have always given her strength, and something to fight to protect. More so at home, but even here, making herself get out amongst people has greatly improved her mood.]

I'm alright. [Accompanied by a quiet smile, it seems to be her default response these days.] It's nice to be out and about with so many people, I hadn't realized how beautiful Mizusato is.

[It doesn't quite occur to Lenalee that Rin was close to Allen too, with how cheerful she seems. But she can remember them appearing in videos together on more than one occasion, though it isn't a subject that she wants broached today.]

Me neither. [Lenalee can't remember a single time, actually, though she is sure that she has traveled past them a few times.] I'd like to visit, while I'm here. Would you want to go too?

[Lenalee watches Rin choke down the ohagi with some concern, ready to smack her back should the need arise. But once that worry passes, she smiles at Rin's agreement.]

I'm glad to hear it. Is it very far away?

Thank you.

[Lenalee follows, falling into step beside her when the crowd will permit it.]

Do you know if the water is still very cold? It would have been nice to have a bathing suit if it isn't. I wonder if they have anything like that here.

[Probably not, but such a thing could probably be summoned. Or she could simply use her training uniform. Though Lenalee hardly thinks about the looks she might get from natives for wearing something as skimpy as a bathing suit, given her standard outfit, it would be cheaper not to invest in one.]

Swimming is probably a bad idea then, wouldn't want to catch a cold. [Lenalee blinks as well at Rin's questioning tone.] Yes, a bathing suit. Ah, do they not have those where you come from?

[Technically speaking, Lenalee's idea of a bathing suit should be something like this, but the Science Team does have a way with dressing her in suspiciously skimpy outfits for the time.]

It's basically just an outfit made out of fabric that is meant to get wet that people in my world wear when they go swimming.

Oh, really? ... I'm not sure that would be worth it. [She shivers a bit at the thought of it.]

Mhm, but I don't think there's any harm in wading in our clothes. I wouldn't want to get too soaked anyway.

[Lenalee gives Rin a bit of an odd look for the strange emphasis, but smiles, if somewhat uncertainly.]

Yes, the festival has been nice.

[She had not particularly been in the right mood for it, but Lenalee is glad that she made herself go. Better than moping about at home.]

Matchings awkward icons \o/
Ah, not much, really. For the most part I've just been wandering around-- I don't come out here very often.

How about you?

Re: Haha, true! \o/
Oh, that--

[Lenalee tries to smother a giggle herself, flushing guiltily.] Well, he didn't want to come, so... [Being in a bad mood herself, she wasn't going to attend the festivities without him. Perhaps she had been a little harsh.]

I guess I'll have to give more things a try when we get back.

Really? [She can't help the giggles that escape.] I didn't expect that much from him.

[Lenalee finds Rin's laughter infectious, and soon enough is doubled over with laughter as well. She'll have to make it up to Kanda later, especially if he has been behaving so well.]

It is. I guess that I owe him.
