The Tardy Circle

So Much Plot

Ascending Water 765: Revelations Galore

6, Jupitersday:

In the mean time, Yū Akamura was looking for a sedative powerful to knockout a Lunar.  He came across a potion in which one of the ingredients was derived from a slime secreted my a manifesting spirit.  He went to go gather something.

Harmony of Intent refused combat training from Peleps Hai'li after asking for her help in combat training. Things were then cleared up after some discussion.

7, Saturnsday:

Self defense classes start.  Yū watches from the shadows, wondering why the Lunar is tormenting Harmony (and his wife? It was all very confusing.  He was sure the Lunar had eaten Erigone.  How were there two of them?).  

One Comedy of Errors later, Harmony, Hai'li, Seven, Darkening Sky and Yū are in the Blue Room talking about why Yū wants to arrest Seven and whether or not Seven's murder of Erigone was even in Great Fork's jurisdiction.  Harmony and Hai'li defended Seven's decision to kill Erigone, saying she was an awful person, she had it coming, and it was totally a legitimate decision to protect Harmony from her.

Eventually, Seven revealed herself as also being a Lunar to Yū.  The topic changed to how Yū was far too good to be a mortal, so they tried to make him spend essence to reveal his power type, hoping he was a Dragon-blooded.  He was not.  He offered his prayers to the Immaculate Faith and his desire to reveal his power as a Dragon-blooded overcame his subconscious denial of his power.  Yū was revealed to be Night Caste and ran off having a not-so-minor break down.  He fled to his batcave with Hai'li following to make sure he didn't encounter any trouble in his mote-less yet iconic anima flaring  state.  

Sometime during this, Harmony revealed himself as an Eclipse. Surprise!

Seven shooed Dark Storm away to talk to Harmony in private about her realization that a Perfect Circle seemed to be forming in Great Forks and was quite concerned that a Dusk Caste seemed to be taking the place of the Dawn that should be there.

DS, after leaving, followed after Yū by way of his anima banner to check if anyone with connections to the Underworld was taking in interest in the newly reveled Night.  This eventually lead him to the entrance to the Batcave, where Hai'li remarked that the ghosts of the Northerners he had killed were sounding an alarm, which she noticed were drawing the city folk to the area.

To avoid the mob, he ran off and Hai'li watched the crowd disperse in confusion.  A woman from the shadows revealed herself, quite put out that Hai'li convinced DS to leave.  After commenting that the grove would look much nicer torn down and in flames, Scary Lady said she was bored now and left, disappearing in the shadows.  She didn't hide herself so well that Hai'li couldn't follow her, so she did.  Hai'li followed her until the woman did some kind of ritual from which Scary Lady disappeared into the ground and left a charred circle.

Hai'li freaked and went back to her vigil at the entrance to the Batcave.

8, Sunsday:

First thing in the morning, Hai'li rushed to Harmony of Intent to tell him what happened the night before and about the super scary crazy lady who was super creepy and talked about how everything would be better torn down and in flames and then she left disappeared into the shadows and was hard to follow but Hai'li managed to follow her anyways but then she made a circle with some kind of powder on the ground and then she sank into the ground and disappeared and then there was scorched stone where she made the circle and the lady was super scary and creepy.

Harmony, in addition to not having had enough coffee, was disheartened to realize these were the rumors he was fighting against.

Then she went back to the Batcave.  Yū finally left, resigned to his fate and determined to make the best of it before he went evil and insane.  Hai'li, as a small cat, perched on his shoulder and tried to comfort him. Yū, like so many others before him, got a job at the Intent mansion.  

DS questioned Hai'li about what happened after he left the night before.  She mentioned the crowd dispersed but there was a super scary lady.  When he asked her for details about the super scary lady, he was clearly unhappy.  Hai'li was quite shocked at his first ever outburst (he even swore!).

Later, Yū went to introduce him to Talespinner with Hai'li accompanying him.

That night, Yū and Harmony frolicked on the rooftops of Great Forks.  Hai'li followed them as a guard and they tried to evade her.  Because its inconvenient sneaking on rooftops when a golden eagle is circling you.
