Apr. 4th, 2005 @ 09:03 pm Two new people in a row! OMG now it's Riku!
Alas!
Brighid
doomweasel:
A lean teenaged boy with silver hair (see teh piccys here and here) slowly enters the room, an utterly confused - yet curious - expression on his face. He suddenly sees Kenshin still glaring daggers at Soujiro and stops. "Ooookaaay," he says slowly. "If I have to choose between this and the heartless-teeming darkness, I'm gonna go with the heartless-teeming darkness." He turns to leave, then stops as if someone has called his name. After a few seconds of standing in silence, he bursts out, "But Your Majesty, we're wasting time here! We need to get out and find Sora!" He listens for a few more moments, then snorts derisively, "I don't see how a bunch of freaks like these guys can help me... ...Your Majesty? Your Majesty!" He looks around the room wildly, searching for his invisible companion. "Damn it!" he growls, casting the people in the room an acid glare. Folding his arms across his chest, he's the spitting image of a sullen, rebellious teen. "My name is Riku," he mutters. "Apparently King Mickey is an ass and thinks this stupid little meeting is more important than finding my friends."

Shishio Makoto. Like this one, a former assassin of the Revolution. This one does not know fully what his plans are, but he will be stopped.

Akito, pulling his attention back to the conversation

(Never Forget)
*to Kenshin, with an air of disbelief*

You're an assassin?

*laughs sharply*

Of course you are. How perfect.

Apologies, Akito-san. *He looks also at Tsuzuki and Hisoka and anyone else he has been speaking with.* This one did not intend to be deceptive. But it is usually better if it isn't known. This one is no longer a manslayer. Now, this one is only a wanderer.

Hatori

(Never Forget)
Hatori imperceptibly edges his chair still further awaay from Akito's.

"Is everything all right, Akito-sama?" he asks solicitously.

To Kenshin, in a low voice, he says, "sir, if you have any more secrets which would again move my honored relative to such fits of laughter, would you please attempt to reveal fewer of them in his presence? It is unwise for him to overtax his...faculties too much at once."

Akito

(Never Forget)
They don't? Really?

You're a killer who goes around talking about protecting people, and how violence is wrong, and how we should all be so very nice to each other-- and no-one thinks that's funny? I think it's the best joke I've heard in a while.

*glares quellingly* Don't you, Hatori?

Riku

(Never Forget)
*to Akito, angrily* Haven't you ever heard of reptentance? Sometimes people do something they regret later and they try to make up for it. I'll bet you've done something you regret now, so don't talk about how "amusing" this all is!


*slouches in seat, glaring at Akito and muttering something unrepeatable*

Hatori

(Never Forget)
"If you think so, Akito-san," Hatori mumbles, looking at the ground, his feet, the chair legs, anything.

A second later, he registers Riku's words, and starts up in shock. A tiny terrified smile is plastered on his face as he stares at Riku.

Akito, nearly spitting

(Never Forget)
So what? So what if you try to "make up for it"-- it doesn't undo it. It never undoes it.

*glances at Hatori's half-hidden face, and a flash of something unreadable in Akito's eyes quickly turns to a glare*

And I've never done anything without a reason. Ever. Other people can regret all they want, but I know why I've done everything I've done. And I'd... I'd do it again. I was right.

*to Riku*

So don't talk to me about regret. Brat.

Hatori bites one corner of his mouth so hard it bleeds, but says nothing. He stares fixedly at his own feet and begins trembling.

*pointedly* If you don't regret anything you've ever done, why are you here?

Tsuzuki

(Never Forget)
Some people just get off on pain, Riku.

There's never any 'making up' for things, no. And you don't have to be a killer like me to do plenty of things there's no making up for. That's life. Maybe you feel justified, and maybe you really are. But the fact that you're sitting here torturing your friend isn't speaking well for you. Makes you look a whole lell of a lot less like the good guy here.

Sephiroth

So. You regret killing people or other assorted bad deeds. Go cry to the nice counselor over there, and let us move on in here?

I certainly don't regret what I did. ...For the most part, at least.

Tsuzuki

(Never Forget)
No. They're not.

It depends on whose benefit you're talking about. For your victim- no. Regret won't bring him back, won't make him feel any better about what you did to him. For you, though... understanding that what you've done is unforgivable... sometimes, guilt is all that keeps you human. You never feel anything, Muraki, and it makes you as much a demon as I. Maybe more.

Muraki

(Never Forget)
*laughs softly at Tsuzuki's words* And I suppose feeling *everything* - every little bit of angst and suffering and guilt and humiliation and whatever else - as opposed to feeling nothing is any better? Ask the boy, let him tell you how much fun it is I'm sure.

No, Tsuzuki-san. Never allowing yourself to feel such trifling emotions is what sets you free. When you are free from chains you are free to be what you are meant to be. Perhaps, someday, if you ever lift Enma's blinders from your eyes, you will understand.

*troubled* But if you don't allow yourself to feel anything, then.... then it's just as if you're.... (it isn't clear whether he says "heartless" or "A Heartless")

*Too angry to think* If I were free of chains, you bastard, I'd-- *Stops short, regains his control.*

It's not about fun. And I don't care what you think I was 'meant to be.' This is about not... not adding more shit to a world that's already hip-deep in the stuff. I won't. And you shouldn't.

*in his usual soft tones*

It's because you're weak. If you are strong, you survive. If you are weak, you die. *smiles*

*looking at Muraki* People who are strong know that.
