Mission 001: Relearning how to Breathe [Action]

[Action: Locked to Harry Dresden]

[It was a shock, a tangible difference that stood out among the rest. The twinge in his shoulders and the soft pillow underneath his head were secondary to the loss that he felt. He felt blind and empty without the familiar flow of images and words--but the frayed strands of the link were painfully familiar. He was reminded of that battle six years ago, when that link was severed by that man, the one who had made their world so twisted. He was reminded of another battle four years later, when he took those bullets and booted that same man from the system. Both incidents, despite their polarity, held one similarity; the conditions were altered.

For a heartbeat, Tieria felt lost in space.

He took a breath, replaced the echoes of his last order to the Raphael, and sat up underneath the covers of the bed he found himself in. He took another breath and studied his hands in a silent fascination, though he was still mindful of his surroundings. The bedroom was unfamiliar, and the absence of the electrical hum that was so familiar spoke as loudly as the strangely talkative birds outside of the windows.

This wasn't the Ptolemy, or even a location in the colonies or on Earth that he was remotely familiar with.

After a heavy, tense moment, he spoke in a soft tone:]


What...is this place?

[Action]


[It was the chill that bothered Tieria the most that afternoon, despite the comfort of his modified uniform that marked him as a member of Celestial Being.  Visible though he was with his purple hair, uniform, and wings, he took the relative quiet of the village to study and recollect himself.  He wouldn't be beaten by the shock of his entry alone--he had come too far to allow that to happen again. What little he had learned of this village and this world during his short 'briefing' was uncomfortably familiar. He was reminded of Celestial Being's original directive...and his determination to not let fate dictate his life again.

That afternoon finds him exploring the village,. He stocked up on supplies from the Shops in the Plaza. As the sun started to set he took to the Bakery to get himself a snack and a hot cup of tea before heading to the Welcome Center to read over the information provided there. He takes a brief moment to watch the landscape, the people, and the gray sky at the Fountain between stops, completely ignoring the briskly cold wind.]

[A 'thank you' is more than enough to prompt her to sit down opposite of him. A shy one, perhaps? She can work with that.]

It's nice to meet you, Tieria! In that case, welcome to Luceti as well! Has someone already explained things to you? I mean...all the strange things about us being here?

Well...[She taps her chin thoughtfully, brow furrowed. What would be good for a newcomer to know...?

OH.]


Do you like art?

[Well then, THAT is just excellent.]

Would you like to?

[What's that she heard? A wide-open invitation for her to make this offer.]

Well then, you should consider joining the Luceti Art Club!

Well? We do pretty much anything that can be considered art! We draw, we paint, we make crafts, and most importantly - we make friends and have a lot of fun! It might be a great way to you to get to know people around here since you're new.

[See? See? She's got this all worked out. Art Club was a friend-making machine.]

We meet the second Sunday of the month if you're interesting in coming along. [WHICH HE TOTALLY SHOULD BE. Art Club is amazing, in her honest opinion.] But there's a few other organizations you might consider getting involved in, too.

[He'll consider it! Yes, she can work with that. She makes a mental note to remind him when the next meeting is coming up.]

Well, there's the S.O.S. Brigade, for one. They specialize in making things fun! [Or, this is what she has come to understand, at least.] And there's the Brave Vesperia...I THINK they build things. Oh - and did anyone tell you about the school?

School-aged? [It takes her a moment to reconcile what exactly would count as school-aged in her mind.] Oh! Yes, I think there is. There's only a few children I know of, but there are a loooot of teenagers.

Yes! In fact, I think most people I meet here are that age. I'm eighteen, myself. How old are you?

[That's not too personal of a question, is it? She's never sure about these things.]

Soooo an adult? [She's not quite sure what that means, either.]

[She nods. That makes sense!]

I see! That's a lot how Luceti is, too. Everyone comes from such different places that everyone has very different ways of interacting with the world and other people.

Exactly! I couldn't imagine a kinder group of people than the ones I've been able to meet here.
