Entry 001- Private (hackable)

I feel as though I've fallen down some monster's lair into a twisted world. I have no idea how to get back.

This past week has been filled with deaths; thrice each for the person chosen.
Elena's deaths have to a degree, shook me to my core. There are many a thing that she and I need to speak on, hopefully soon. I see cracks forming but I think I might be too late to help her. My Kōhai.
The deaths of Rufus, were shocking as well. Perhaps because I am one of his protectors and I knew I couldn't do a thing to stop what was going on in that room. I didn't even know where his room was and if it was anything like Elena's deaths, the room would have been empty when the door would have been opened. Made up all prim and proper, mint on the pillow and all that as if awaiting for his return.

Is it at all possible to not go through this deaths? Or is it ineluctable?

I haven't even met everyone who occupies this hotel a corporeal manner. Shiva's tits, what's going on here?

[Reno of course is more than able to hack the entry, and he risks contacting his partner, despite the things that have passed between them. He needs to do this, because they need to stick together if they are all going to survive.] Aibou, we need to get together and discuss methods of surviving in this place. This past week has been hellish for all of us, but if we're going to survive without losing our damn minds, we need to find a way to stay together.

Reno. What the hell is Aibou?

Hellish isn't the word I'd use to cover it, especially for some.

Sadly, I think some people's minds have already broke.

Elena. ..[He sighed] I know. This place is. . .I don't know, but I know it's fucking dangerous, and we need to find a way to counteract whatever the fuck it's trying to do, or we're all going to either be dead or broken here sometime soon.


I for one don't wanna come as close to damn well breaking as I have been since I got here EVER again, and that means working together. Getting as much as intel as we can get our hands on and trying to figure out how to apply it to the situation at hand.


This shit with the deaths and everything else that has been happening has had me so strung out I haven't even been able to try to get my hands on the receptionist yet, I need to do that tomorrow if I can.


Most important is to stop the damn infighting and have each other's backs, though.

You haven't answered my question Reno. What is Aibou?

Stop the infighting? Then perhaps a meeting should be called so we can all hash it out all at once. Weapons in the middle of the table so to speak.

It means partner. [There would be a slight laugh over the connection] And yeah, we do. Need ta all get together. Elena seems to have the situation well in hand, but Tseng seemed. ..too agreeable almost, if ya know what I mean. Like he gave in too easy.


Dotman is anything but submissive, no matter what timeframe he's from, and for him to give in that easy. . .it seems to me he's got a plan in mind to get his position back. Normally, I wouldn't give a shit, but this is not a time or place to be jockeying for position.

Why do I have a feeling it means more than just partner? Don't call me that.

I don't quite know what you mean. I haven't had much interaction with Rufus or Tseng.

Are you referring to Tseng as "dotman"?

[There would be a sigh if it was voice, however there would be nothing but a blinking cursor.]
shinras_jester
Jul. 27th, 2009 04:46 am (UTC)
Can mean more, in this case it doesn't, and yeah, I called Tseng dotman. I know you weren't around for what happened when Elena took over, but in general. . .well Tseng doesn't just give in easily.


Basically what happened is that Tseng ended up losing his position as Director to Elena because she decided he wasn't suited for the position. Boss backed her on it, thus Elena's director now. I just have a feeling he gave in too easy.


Anyway, my main point being we gotta get cohesive and back each other up, no matter how pissed off we make each other. That includes Tseng. That means all foura us got get together and talk shit through so we're all on the same page.

Jul. 27th, 2009 04:49 am (UTC)
The Tseng I know doesn't give in easily.

Tseng hasn't pissed me off. But I agree that things need to be sorted out.

I'll get in contact with Elena after I try to get my hands on the receptionist to try ta sweet talk her into any information I can get from her. Set up a meeting for all of us to get together and work shit through.


There are several people here who could probably be pretty useful to us too once they aren't so shaken up from the events of the past week. Washu bein' one of those. She's a scientist type, smart as hell. Bribe her with sugar, she'll prob'ly co operate.


[Reno doesn't mention Ozzie, because at the moment there is simply too much bad blood between them, and he's not certain of how to fix it.]

Gotcha. I got a bottle of the good stuff for the meeting. Buzz me back when you get in touch with her. I wanna get this whole mess sorta through so we can be an actual team again.

You do realize that this meeting might not fix anything right away? Or at all?

Of course I do. Just better hopin' right now than not hopin'. Optimism is what's keepin' me sane right now.

Don't set your hopes up for right now. It'll fail.

Gee thanks for the vote of confidence. [The sardonic tone didn't convey over text, but he's certain, as well as Rude knows him, that the big bald man would get it] It may not fix it all, but even if it only fixes it enough that we aren't sniping at each other worse than the damn ghosts are going after us, that's good enough for now.

Jul. 27th, 2009 05:09 am (UTC)
It's called being realistic.

Right now, if I decide to be optimistic, I know things will shatter. Realistically thinking is how I'm hoping to play things out.

If something good can come from the meeting then I'll be pleasantly surprised.

Private to Rude
[OOC - Guess which one you're talking to. Yep, it's the meaner of the two.]

Meetings only end in Reno, Oswald, and Gogul acting like children, Washu storming out, and the boss refusing to show because he's better than us peons. The assignments I've given out are:

Reno - Get info from the receptionist; later also to -distract- the receptionist when we go for the ground floor staff area.
Tseng & Oswald (hacker) - Work on the locks to the staff only areas
Gogul (hacker) - Get me full control of the security cameras & the PA system
Washu - Run tests on Alice to see if we really come back from death no matter -what-. Having a degree of confidence in that matter would make things at least somewhat easier.

If I could get these people to DO that....that'd be great. We'd probably have some answers pretty damn quickly.

As far as the boss...I have no idea how to handle things. Every time I offer him a guard, he's not interested. But I have no doubt it's going to fly in my face that he's one of the ones that got killed.

Just...help me. Worry about my sanity when we get home.

Re: Private to Elena
Washu, Oswald and Gogul are not Turks and therefore would not be as said meeting. The meeting would be Turks only. And if you say that the boss is refusing to show because he thinks he's better than us, well then we won't have time to inform him of things to come when shit hits the fan and the rest of us are ducking.
Just make sure someone gets him a good dry cleaner for that white suit of his.

Technically Elena, this is not home and therefore ShinRa does not actually exist here. We are doing our Turk duties as Turks because we are all here, the boss included.

As far as I see it, if he's not willing to come down off his high horse a peg or two, then he isn't our responsibility.

I'm more worried about your sanity now.

I don't claim to know what the boss thinks. So that much is a guess on my part.

You want us to call a Turks Only meeting? That could work...as long as Tseng sits next to Reno.

My sanity is as good as it's going to get, Sempai. In some ways, you could say it's better now.

Re: Private to Elena
I realize that you don't claim that.

A Turks Only meeting is greatly needed kōhai. And Reno will sit nowhere near you. It, if anything could also stand as a "bringing Rude up to speed" meeting.

If you need to talk kōhai, I am more than willing to listen.

There's not much to say, sempai.

But...lay off on Reno about what he did to me. As far as he's concerned, I've forgiven him. Half of me has...and I suppose that's the best I'll get?

Re: Private to Rude
I'm not trying to push but the offer is there if you ever want it.

If he brings it up again, I may have to hurt him. I won't bring it up or say anything in regards to it.

I am glad to be here in hell with you, if it makes things a bit more bearable for you. We will find a way home.

I've missed you, too, sempai.

Don't let what happened to me bother you too much, okay? I'll be fine. You know I'm made of tough stuff.

And lay off of Reno a bit, na? It's a long story, but...we got it all sorted out in the end. It's fine.

I know you're made of tougher stuff. What bothers me is how casual he makes it sound, as if it's suppose to be okay because it was an order. But I will let it be.

I will try because you asked.

Realistic? [There was a snort from his end] If I were to think realistically I would be insane now. Or moreso than I am naturally anyway.


Rude. . .[and there is a long pause, as if he's looking for what to say and can't find it no matter how much he wants to] I'm sorry for everything I've done, both here and back home. I'm ok now, though, well, as ok as I get.


Now I guess the best thing is to hope for the best but prepare for the worst, ne?

Pull together with me, Reno.

Pull together and we'll see each other through. It's what Turks do, na?
