Eighth Trial - Keeping On Keeping On

WHO: Alric Caelegart and maybe you!
WHAT: DitL type things
WHERE: Wherever!
WHEN: Whenever throughout October, really!
WARNING(S): None expected



1) Individual Training: Alric is always up for working with his team mates, either in groups or in individual training, and where he's had a shortage of instruction on developing and exploring his powers, he's had quite a lot of very intensive experience in controlling them, as well as his naturally fiery temper. If he can help with either, he'd be happy to. Also, anyone who can help him with taking his own in new directions would certainly be welcome!

2) Music: One of the things Alric has done since childhood to balance control and expression has been music, and he can often be found in the music room, jamming out--especially a lot of rock opera and symphonic metal ballad covers of classical music. Feel free to drop by to listen, or to join in!

3) Alric's Training: Alric invests a good chunk of his time in various training regimens, practicing both force and precision with his powers, as well as sword training (on top of assisting with Hijikata's class) and a range of academics including political science, history, economics, and physical science. Feel free to drop in while he's doing one of those things, or seek his help with any of them.

4) Wildcard: Other stuff is fine, too! Want to talk about current events? Want to ask/tell him something as president of the student council? Want to bug him while he's chillaxing in a tree? Go for it!

"Well you see...." Viti had to take a second to think. "...I asked a girl on a date, but I don't really know what a date is exactly, even if people throw the word around a lot. Do I take her some place to get fed, and then someplace with a nice view? Is that how it works?"
griot: (reflection)

"Hmmm." Viti rubbed his chin in thought. He realized, smitten as he was, that he didn't actually know what he and she both liked.

"Lets see...Something we both enjoy." Viti suddenly bulged his eyes in revelation.

"I know! I like swimming, and she likes sleeping in logs. Therefore I should take her to a water park with a log ride!"

Viti stood proud for a second, but then realized a fatal flaw in his plan.

"I'm not sure how to get one, though. hmmm."
griot: (hmm?)

Edit: I meant "Can't get too a water park." not "can't get a water park"

Viti nodded.

"Yes! talking to people who know her would be prudent. Reki is hard to get ahold of, but I am sure she's a friend of that girl with horns and pink hair. Yes I should speak to her." Viti kept nodding, a thought suddenly occurred to Viti.

"What do you think of giving her flowers on this first date? Is that too forward? In the movies the date has flowers sometimes."

Viti raised a brow upon hearing the word "atypical." Normally he was uninterested in Lovie dovei gossip, but this time he had to ask.

"Atypical huh? Sounds like you have an interesting relationship story yourself. May I ask?"
griot: (reflection)

Viti scratched his head. "Are arranged marriages a common tradition in Kaitheny?"

"Ah yes. The last thing you need is another Princess Diana situation." Viti shuttered. He had been born long after Diana's death, but his power had told him all about the situation.

"Well England has an interesting suggestion. 'Have the heir then have the affair.' Actually that suggestion was for ladies, but I think it applies equally to lords."
griot: (hmm?)

Viti raised an eyebrow. On an intellectual level Viti understood the concept of royalty, and arranged marriages, as his power taught him the history of a nobleman or two. Still he grew up hearing that marriage was about love, and without it no loyalty was owed between its participants.

But for once Viti put thought into his next statement.

"I can't say I envy your position. Kisume may yet turn me down, but at least I was allowed to pursue my love for her."

Viti put his finger on his chin and looked up into this thoughts again.

"I guess I never looked at it that way before. But that's not a bad analogy. hmmmm."

Viti then shook his head to break out of his own thoughts.

"Well anyhow, I think I know how to proceed with my date. Thanks for the advice, I'll let you know how it goes. Bye bye."

Viti literally ran off to make preparations.
