Alas!
syonakeleste:
Depth of Suffering: pessimisticpessimistic
To allow us all to begin...forming commonalities...I present a question for ::scowls:: peaceful discussion: Dealing with impractical costume elements during battle. How, one may wonder, does that hair not get in your eyes? How does a swirling cloak not get caught on everything? Where do you go to replace on short notice a school uniform that gets torn every day?

Well, I can't say as I have ever been in a battle situation myself, but there are other...impracticalities I do deal with in my...line of work. For the most severe, I have learned useful tricks over the years. For everything else, there's bleach and a good dry-cleaner. *calmly ignores the curious stares he's getting and proceeds to light up a cigarette*

I do not battle. I force Alucard, or that police girl he has, to go do so. Don't see the need to get -my- hands dirty...

Well, as to my hair, it's short enough that it isn't usually a problem. The few strands that fall in my face are easy enough to look past, or look through, or whatever.
My clothes... again, they're not all that impractical. Fortunately for me, they don't get all that torn up-- I can't really afford a new suit-- and I can mend my own shirts if I lose a button or something. Occasional disasters aside, I don't engage in hand-to-hand combat all that often, anyway. My shikigami do most of the fighting for me.

*Nods* And then, for some people, I make an exception. Did that stomach wound heal cleanly? Would you like another?

Do you have any idea how annoying it is to burn down a small mountain village and keep your hair looking nice? I had to use conditioner for weeks to get it back to looking good.
As far as clothes go, though, a belt works well for keeping the trenchcoat from getting caught on things. And as my sword is long enough, I can keep enemies far away enough that my clothes and hair don't get in any danger.

*nods* I have a dear friend who also carries a sword and favors long hair and flowing robes, yet he somehow manages to keep everything immaculate. Of course, he isn't in any battles - at least, none that I'm aware of.

At this point, I feel that I must step in and recommend my brother's store; he carries quite a wide selection of clothing, and if you do not see exactly what you are looking for, he will be happy to custom-design an order. All his designs are of the highest quality and very unique.

Hatori, why bother? You're going to be erasing their memories when we leave anyway.

This one is sorry that you did not receive protection when there was need, Akito-san.

What are you sorry for? What do you know? Walking around with a sword like some kind of wanna-be samurai nut... and you want to talk to me? Get away from me!

Oh. My hair, yeah. It's magic. The spikes. They're all magic. And, since they're magic, they don't get in the way.

But, it took a while to get the blood out of the ShinRa uniform that wasn't really mine in the first place, after I killed the silver haired guy up there for burning down my small mountain village.

I'm not big on...diplomacy.

I've found that being baked in Mako for a good five years of my life is probably the best way to blow off the 10 lb. armor plate that I wear on the left shoulder. Oh, that sleeve that attatches? Functional. Really. Functional. Doesn't get in the way of kickingthesilverhairedmotherfucker'sass battle at all. I made sure of it.

This one spends a lot of time mending clothing and doing laundry. *smile* As for hair . . . this one has never thought about it. This one ignores it while fighting.

Clothes? I'm stuck in a room dicsussing *clothes*?? And *hair*?

*sighs exasperated* Fine. When Fuuma cuts up my clothes, Imonoyama-san makes sure they get replaced before I have to go back to school. More's the pity, I could really use a great excuse not to go to school... it's so *pointless* when the world's coming to an end. Honestly, why should I spend my time learning algebra when I'll probably be dead in less than a year?

So there. *savagely bites on a stick of pocky*

I'll agree with you that algebra has no use whatsoever, alive or dead. However, I will warn you that, even when dead, *some* math is necessary. Tatsumi-- he's my boss's secretary-- insists on expense reports. ACCURATE expense reports. Sometimes I think he spends more time doublechecking my figures than I do on the actual assignments. So I'd study some, if I were you.

I can honestly say I don't have your problems. If this is what discussion is about, then I don't have any reason to be here.
