Testament of the Great Teacher (Open Thread)

Post by Va'tet on Thu Sep 13, 2018 12:54 pm

Va'tet sat in the too-large chair set at the head of the Tsuyosa greeting hall. The Manor was quiet, even more than it used to be. A scant thirty Vastine Amorte had responded to her message to Veratrax Peak and agreed to join the Tsuyosa Noble Family, having been officially adopted as lesser members of the Noble Family, their future children having full Nobility rights. She had hopes that more Vastine Amorte from other mountains would come. The name of Tsuyosa was known far beyond Seireitei.

But, the matters of home were not what had the young woman contemplating life. It was something she seldom did. Why worry about the mortal coil when yourself was exempt from its trappings? But, the letter in her lap weighed her mind with many tons of such thoughts. It crushed her under a weight she couldn't fathom, and had caused her to forgo sleep the last two nights.

The letter in question was one discovered three days prior. Since Va'tet had learned of Ma'kine's death, how all his belongings were gone, she had invested her time in tracking down whatever scraps of her history she could. Her spiritual energy was still unstable all these months after returning from Hueco Mundo, so she invested herself in personal matters. Her efforts, however, only recovered a few statues and disintegrating scrolls, but three days ago she found a black journal in an antiques shop in Eastern Rukongai's Third District. The owner claimed the book had belonged to a long-dead Shinigami war hero, but the other patrons had laughed at the shopkeeper, claiming it a forgery, especially since it was written in runes of a language nobody could identify.

But Va'tet recognized the Vastine Amorte's written language. Vastine rarely wrote, as their history was one given orally, passed from parent to child to grandchild. When she brought the tome back to the Manor and began reading the person journal of her deceased master and guardian, she had found a letter nestled between two pages. The letter had no outward writing, so she opened it as well and began to read.

Which led to her current disposition. The letter had been the last will of Ma'kine, written many decades after Va'tet's death. In the pages of the hidden letter, Va'tet had learned of Ma'kine's personal feelings of depression and loathing, of how disheartened he'd become with the Shinigami after sustaining serious injury in their civil war. She learned of his love for her and several of his students whose training he'd personally seen to near the end of his life. And so, she sought out the names she recognized in Ma'kine's will.

There were names mentioned that she did not know, whom she couldn't find in any registry of active Shinigami. Such as Keiichi Moriya. But others she knew, and had invited over to her Manor.

Captain Commander Lanying Baozhai.

And Shiroki Sakanade.

The position of Corps Commander confers a modest collection of benefits, chief of all this: the leisure of knowing every ongoing event, plot or rumor unfolding within a territory, sometimes even before the related parties themselves.

If there was one thing the 2nd squad captain hated, it was Surprise.

There are things he dislikes more, of course. Death being among them. But by virtue of its unpredictability, Surprise takes a spot near the top of the list all the same. Being surprised implied a lack of preparation, an inability to predict outcomes and act on them. This holds true for both the bad or the good.

Strike that. Because theres no such thing as good surprises. It is a tenet in his philosophy, one that the entire squad has come to understand as well.

"l'm to attend a function at Tsuyosa manor, you'll be in charge of the Division whilst l'm gone. Make sure everyone's up to date on the new codes, Lieutenant. Usual failsafes apply,"

Protocol 1: never leave squad unattended, always appoint interim commander even if its for a short while. No sense leaving the unit to splinter from absent leadership, like it had done on several other occasions.

Protocol 2: passwords issued to unit leaders, just in case it becomes necessary to fake a betrayal or go AWOL for any particular reason. Hopefully those would prevent the inevitable idiocy of people taking sides and causing civil war in the streets. Such a thing might be okay for the 11th...but 2nd squad had STANDARDS.

He's resolved to attend as himself, not as the Captain--leaving the gigai to Hanzo should the need arise. Alone in the office, the unspoken question hangs between them, the possibility for which all these preparations are for.

What if its a trap? Hanzo does not say so aloud, doesnt need to at this point. The implications are clear.

"It is undoubtedly a trap," he flung on a casual yukata obtained just for this occasion. One did not show up to Tsuyosa manor in rags. Being underdressed drew attention as much as being overdressed.

EVERYTHING was a trap, if you were silly enough to allow it to be. A formal function held at a rich manor would be no different.

"At least TRY to avoid collateral damage this time?" as usual, the mod-soul's clipped professional tones contrasted sharply with its spectral appearance. And was that Hanzo trying to suppress a laugh?

"I do NOT cause collateral damage," he informed them both wearily. "Collateral damage happens whether you want it or not."

The meaningful glance traded between gigai and lieutenant stayed with him even as he departed the room

Va'tet counted tge minutes until the arrivals of her guests. She'd explicitely requested the other members of the household to be busy today, each off doing something else. As such, the large estate was eerily quiet, save for a certain Hollow unable or unwilling to read the mood.

Muerte' was occupying himself with loudly practicinh electric guitar and singing to an imaginary audience. Ever since Va'tet mentioned her predecessor 's musical career, Muerte had insisted on starting a band. Va'tet had not known the Vasto Lorde was musically inclined. Now she was beginning to regret mentioning the former idol. Muerte seemed convinced that 'Of a Feather' as he wanted the band to be called, would be even more popular. He'd even written two original songs, 'Under the Moonlit Night' and 'Unkillable'.

Va'tet was doinf her best to ignore him as he sang the chorus of Unkillable in a falsettos and his own, singing both her and his lines, lead and back-up vocals while playing an angry, high energy riff.

The letter of Ma'kine was incredibly heartwrenching to have read, learning of how little the once-proud man thought of himself. He'd left the descendants of Tsuyosa his home, ehich no longer existed. And his students, a collection of scrolls of Kido he was trying to develop, which could not be located. And to the Commander... He had a lot to say, and very little of it was kind. There ewas more, of course. But Va'tet wondered if she should even reveal this letter, for it had completely changed her view of Ma'kine. And if others knew...?
