Yuuri Wakasa ([personal profile] pullingdaisies) wrote in [community profile] theairlock2017-07-01 10:12 pm

I won't cry, I won't cry. No, I won't shed a tear.

[ For the first time since this disgusting game started, Yuuri doesn't go straight to the garden after leaving the trial room. As promised, she goes to the kitchen and starts putting together a meal.

Anyone who comes to the meeting will find leftovers on the table -- to start with, anyway. There's tea, coffee, soda, whatever anyone wants to drink spread across one end as well, just in case no one can stomach food quite yet.

Yuuri herself isn't anywhere to be seen to begin with but there's a warm, sweet and almost spicy smell coming from the kitchen. And when she eventually emerges, she's carrying a full pot of katsu curry which she sets on the table and then quickly follows with another pot (it was the only thing big enough for all those servings, okay) brimming over with rice.

Katsu curry. This wasn't a victory. But she refuses to accept it as a loss, either. There may only be nine of them left now but they are alive. And so long as you're alive you can continue to move forwards.

She's come too far to give up now. All of them have.

Come and sit down and eat something. Or drink something. Or just sit with what's left of your family and let yourself remember: none of you are alone. ]

[Ardyn wasn't sure how he'd gotten back to room seven. He wasn't sure if Church's shoulder was still under his hand, he wasn't even sure where he was right now.]

[It was supposed to work. Queenie was right there with him and with everyone, and she'd just disappeared out of his arms like the teleportation they'd spoken of. She was gone, and then she was gone.]

[How does it feel to be powerless, echoed Ardyn's own voice in his head, malicious and amused. Can't help your friends if you can't help yourself.]

[He'd believed they could protect each other. They'd been together, been chipping away at PAL's defenses and evasion. Ardyn had believed that not even one more person would have to die, and yet--]

['While you dawdle, people are dying.']

[Ardyn choked on a breath he didn't realize he'd been holding, staggering back against the wall and sinking to the floor.]

[She'd been right there. She'd been right there, and he was so sure they'd go together or not at all.]

[Everything was distant and far away, like a ringing of the ears after a blast way too close. The disorientation. The world dizzy and not fully upright.

Somehow, he moves. He couldn't say which of them had moved first. But move they did.

She was in their arms, and then she wasn't. The awful thought of Clarith did this rumbles in the distance. The echo of because you're like a glass soldier, rolling thunder.

Church finds the box. He hadn't meant to stray, but there was so much that was important and he didn't know where to start--but the box. It's open. He pushes back the lid, and those now familiar bottles of silver, each one labeled. Sitting there all pretty just for them.

He still hasn't read Nishitani's letter. Fuck, he still has the one for Queenie, and how is he supposed to be able to--

He can't fucking breathe when he brings the box, sets it on the floor with a clatter loud enough to shake the vials, but not break them. With a shaking hand, he takes one out. Sets it by Ardyn.

(he's fucking up his job, he's fucking up his job, he can't protect Ardyn if he can't protect himself, he's going to slip away from all of them and then there won't be anything left and if he was worth anything he'd be doing something right now--)

Takes out his own. Their names.

Maybe he shouldn't.

Maybe he can't.

The option is there.]

[Nari goes to the garden, not just for the memorial, but for something else as well. She heads to the roses, not caring as they scratch her with their thorns as she sits among them. She takes a deep breath and places her hands on the ground. It takes a moment before the roses starts growing wildly, overtaking their plot and slowly reaching into others. She stops at a certain point and gets up. With a little ice, she starts snipping white and red roses off of their stems. She carefully uses the ribbon and pieces from her dress to bundle two roses together, making enough bunches for everyone. Even the memorials will have a little pair of roses on them.

Next she heads to the one person she knows might need this more than anyone. But where is the nun?

When all is said and done, Nari will finally arrive in the dining room, looking relaxed and covered in dirt, blood, and scratches. And digging into the curry with gusto.]

You made a mistake. But you did something reckless because it was what you truly believed would save us all.

I can understand that better than anyone.

Family is never so perfect as to coexist flawlessly without arguments, but that should not mean they'll immediately turn on one another and cast each other out. Nishitani and Queenie thought us a family. So do I.

So place your faith in us rather than PAL, and we will find a way out of this together.

[Junpei's first stop is to the kitchen, where he climbs straight up the counter with no thought to his own safety or whether or not he's getting in Yuuri's way so he can rip that motherfucking puzzle off the motherfucking ceiling. If it's still there, anyway. Did PAL even solve it? He doesn't know if that would make him angrier. He doesn't know if there's angrier he can get.

After that he stalks off on a Cloverquest, and even after that he's in no mood to sit still and mingle. So if one absolutely needs to catch him, he'll be in the dining room for a few brief, tense minutes as he glares at the pot of curry like they've personally insulted his father (Tenmyouji Ardyn, the Once and hopefully Never Again King), then storms right off once more, leaving poor worried Michi and Tie behind to pururu sadly at the remaining Champions for a peck to eat.

Should anyone go looking for him after that, they'll find him in the second floor rest area, stripped back down to his white hoodie and kicking the living shit out of his old Kip pillow because fuck this game and fuck PAL and fuck everything.

Between all his injuries, he never got a chance to let Nishitani-san teach him more about fighting.

He never got to try firewhiskey with Queenie.]

[But he called out calmly, a sharp contrast from the man that had been barely cognizant of his surroundings before the ceremony had started.]

[personal profile] myocordial 2017-07-01 11:11 pm (UTC)(link)
[Heart takes a few moments to collect himself first. When he shows up for the meeting, he's back in his human form.

The previous trial... Rhys, Angel, all of that... it had nearly broken him. Taken the fight completely out of him, left him feeling tired and useless. The pain this time is comparable. The feelings for each of his human friends are different, unique in their own way, but the loss of Queenie hits him just as hard as that trial had. The hits just keep on coming.

The difference is that, this time, the emotion that's strongest isn't despair. It's anger. Despair is quiet and empty and... nothing he can do anything with. But anger?

Oh, he can work with anger.

So despite everything that's just happened, despite yet again failing to save a friend, Heart's eyes are very focused. He has his list out again, but he's making some... changes. Including crossing out two names.

There's nothing to channel this anger into quite yet, but... that's familiar enough. He can be patient.]

[There was someone who understood that focused look, and after a little while he'd finally shown himself outside of room seven. A cup of tea was set within Heart's reach, Ardyn pulling out a chair across from him.]

My apologies--I've never thought to notice if you need to eat or drink anything. If you can and should feel up to it, that might help.

wtf this got so long i'm sorry

[personal profile] shikosuki 2017-07-02 03:36 am (UTC)(link)
[ So many times now... Choromatsu has spent these "after parties" depressed and trying desperately not to fall apart and break down crying. This time though while he is still empty and exhausted, still feeling the grief of losing Queenie, he's also angry as hell. Not at Queenie (he could never be angry with Queenie) but at the way things unfolded at the end. He would rather have died back there with her, end it all like he said, than to have her so cruelly torn away from them in a moment where they all felt united. He was denied that. Everything he said was made pointless and worthless, all because of...

...

He has to go to his room first. He has to get some of this out of his system before he does something truly regrettable. So he trashes the room he once shared with Takumi, throws an absolute fit, screaming and cursing where no one can hear him. He can't do this in front of everyone right now - he doesn't know what he'd do like this. Who he could hurt.

He only calms down when he comes across Takumi's letter for Queenie in his rampage. The one he said he'd hold onto until she was ready to read it. When he sees it he stops, picks it up and sits on the bed. It takes him a while to do anything else but look at it... a lot of internal debate, a lot of waiting for his heart rate to slow... but eventually he ends up opening and reading it.

...A week ago this would has wrecked him and turned him into a crying mess. But now he just gets up and heads to Kip's room.

When he's there he just... sits himself on the bed. Helps himself to a candy, if any's left over. There's no cameras here so he takes his time, and once he's sure he's alone, he starts to quietly read it out loud. When he finishes he goes silent again.

... ]


He loved you a lot you know.

...I loved you too.

[ He should have said it sooner. You'd think losing Takumi and Angel would have taught him that. She'd done so much for him, cared for him so much... She was one of the people that saved his life. And yet he hadn't been able to do anything to save her in the end. He was useless... ]

I'll get back at those bastards. [ PAL, the network... ] No matter what it takes; I promise.

[ He's done being useless.

After spending a long time in there he finally leaves. Though on his way out he leaves the letter on Queenie's new memorial plot covering it with a small mound of dirt so hopefully no one else will read it.

He finally appears in the dining room after that, though he doesn't help himself to the curry. As much as he loves Yuuri's cooking AND curry, he knows there's food in the kitchen too... after all, he helped. So no offense Yuuri but before he sits down he ducks into the kitchen and starts bringing it all out. The sandwiches, deviled eggs, fruit skewers, shrimp... all of it. Whatever he sees and knows she made he brings out.

When he's done he only says one thing. ]


Queenie made all this. We shouldn't let it go to waste.

[ He refuses to.

When he sits down, it's with a plate that is loaded up with a bit of everything. At every single afterparty previous, no matter who was cooking, Choromatsu never ate. Even the week where he helped cook, he gave it to others and had none himself. Every Friday he had gone without eating a thing. And it wasn't because of who made it or any lack of trust-- he had always trusted food served to the whole group, it was logically the safest. No, it was because he had no appetite and knew he wouldn't be able to keep it down. But today? He's practically stuffing his face. Still going at a pace that allows him to savor it all though.

He wants to make sure he can remember later. The way her food tasted. Not quite as good as his mom's (too different) but close enough. The taste of the coffee she made him, of muffins, of challah, of dinner that one time they had that date...

He's too focused on the food and full of frustration and guilt to even notice the tears that started falling down his face. ]

You're right.

[A scattered few weeks as a human was less than nothing next to two thousand years without a sense of taste. The first time in ages he'd eaten anything and actually appreciated it had been in this room--had it been Yuuri's cooking, or Queenie's? Ardyn didn't remember and it probably didn't matter.]

We're not letting her efforts be for nothing.

[Hand him a goddamn sandwich, Choro.]

[Cece doesn't make her way to the dining room until after her making sure Nari is okay in the garden but when she does she's not stopping to eat, not yet. Her hair is flaming red today, tied back with the most orange ribbon she could find and she took enough time to put on her reddest lipstick.

While everyone decompresses and compartmentalizes and does their best to not break further over katsu curry, Cece is going to make her rounds to each and every remaining Champion. She is going to wrap her arms around them in the tightest hug she can manage, to the point of almost being painful, and then leave a very red lipstick kiss on them. Maybe on their cheek or their forehead or even on the back of their hand. Just somewhere where the bright red stain can be seen by a certain AI watching their every move.

These are her Champions. She is their host. And she swear on her own life and everything she holds dear she is going to do whatever it takes to keep them safe.]
