Alas!

[Hey, all. This thread's getting scarily long, (which is great, I'm glad people are having fun, grin) so I'm going to restart it here.]


Hisoka

*to Soujirou*

That's not strength. That's sadism.

And you'll be dead anyway, sooner or later. It's just that, if you think that way, no-one will care when you die.

Well. They might celebrate.


Tsuzuki

*Grins at Hisoka* Maybe everyone has a certain amount of joy they have to spread in the world, either while they're alive or when they're dead, you think? Like the old joke about Hitler dying on a Jewish holiday.

*To Soujirou, still grinning, but it's not so friendly now* And as for you- I was born in the Meiji era. I'm almost a century old and still looking pretty. I could last for another century at least and I probably will. How's that for surviving? How's that for strength?


Hisoka

*sort of half-smiles back when Tsuzuki grins at him.

It deepens to a small but definite smile when Tsuzuki speaks to Soujirou.*


Soujirou

*smiles* A century? It's only the tenth year of Meiji now. That's confusing! *scratches the back of his head*

(Soujirou continues to look cheerful. He either is oblivious or displays no reaction to any hostility directed at him.)


Riku

*thinks momentarily about the time disparity, then shrugs and continues*

All this talk about strength really only considers the strength of a person's body. Your heart's strength is more important - the strength to endure all sort of hardships instead of shutting yourself away.

*snorts* Ridding yourself of emotions isn't strength - it's just the opposite. You're really running away because you're afraid of getting hurt.

*To Riku*
Is it strength to let yourself be constantly hurt? Strength has nothing to do with the tactic, and everything to do with who wins. The victor writes the history, and what wins is later considered to be what was "stronger." If a method that you feel is weak can be used to defeat those who are strong, which is truly stronger?

Despite what you may have been told, dying for love or for friendship is the same as dying in a ditch somewhere.

*shakes head angrily*

No, that's not true! Even if my physical body dies, I know that a part of me will live on in the hearts of my friends... and a part of them lives in me.

*leans forward slightly, his smile deepening when Tsuzuki goes ballistic* Yes? You'd what, Tsuzuki-san?

*smiles approvingly at Soujirou*

Tsuzuki

*The smile, by this point, is more like a snarl, but he's hanging on to it with everything he'd got. He's even keeping his voice somewhat pleasant.* I'd probably have turned most of Japan into a charred wasteland years before you were so much as a twinkle in the mailman's eye, so there's no real point in pursuing that subject, now is there?

*rich laughter echoes quietly through the room* Ah, Tsuzuki-san. You never fail to entertain me, my beloved.

That's it. *Stands up* I'm done here. To hell with the court and their ideas of community service, to hell with this whole comedy routine, and to hell with you. If they don't like it, let 'em fire me, but I. Am. Leaving. Come on, Hisoka. Mikage, let us out.

Now.

Muraki (being a PITA as usual LOL)

(Never Forget)
*smiles slyly at the "to hell with you" comment* Ah, Tsuzuki-san...are you inviting me to join you?

*calmly rises and smooths down the front of his clothes, glances at Mikage* If Tsuzuki-san is leaving, I am as well.

::looks uncharacteristically embarrassed:: That is, you see...

::he takes a breath and smiles like the bastard he is:: I am no more able to leave than you are.
