. . . . . . . . . . . . Ah.

Huh.  This is . . . interesting.  I suppose it could be worse.  Amnesia in the middle of a volcano.  Or the ocean.  Somehow, I’m just not really all that surprised.  I've definitely done something like this to myself before.  But never mind.  That's not the issue right now – First step is finding out just where I am.  This book in my hand -- maybe it can tell me something.  . . . Too dark to read, though.  So!  Guess my only option is to start walking.  I'll need to get out of these woods somehow, after all.

Ah-hem.  *cough*

Left foot forward.  Right foot forward.  Step.  Step.  Step. 

And again.  Again. 

Again . . . . .

. . .

. . .

Hey.  Look here.  I'm not narrating everything I'm doing for the fun of it.  That’s for people who’ve totally lost their minds, and all that's missing from this brilliant piece of work are the memories.  This thing is obviously a communication device.  Now is someone going to respond anytime soon or am I going to have to sleep out here tonight?  If it’s the latter, you'd better hurry on up and say something so I can start making a shelter out of leaves and . . . barks . . . and things.  I’m an expert in outdoor survival, you know!

Another new person? Voooi! Someday I'm going to catch where all you people keep coming from!

Thank goodness. I was beginning to think no one could understand my language. I'm afraid I have no recollection of how I came to this place, so if you wou --

Hang up. What do you mean by 'another'?

This fucking island is full of people with no memories! New people just pop up, like you.

From: [identity profile] shoukanjutsu.livejournal.com
. . . That isn't very funny.

You're telling me! Like I didn't have anything better to do than hang around this fucking trash heap!

. . . Then . . . you have lost your memory as well?

Date: 2009-02-05 02:14 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] novolumecontrol.livejournal.com
Unfortunately. I remember a bit more now. But not much. You'll probably start remember stuff soon too.

F-fascinating . . . So everyone here is exactly the same way?!

(By the by -- This would be the part, where, ostensibly, you shout April Fool's and lead me towards the healers who proceed to restore my memory.)

Not everyone. I don't think the natives have any memory problems. But there's a whole building of amnesiacs with little rooms all ready assigned to them in town. Fucking convenient. Makes you feel like your part of some fucking experiment!

Then . . . there's only one thing to do.

Date: 2009-02-05 02:23 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] shoukanjutsu.livejournal.com
Show me to the nearest library!

Date: 2009-02-05 02:26 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] novolumecontrol.livejournal.com
Vooi. You think you're going to find something everyone else missed? It's you're time. It's in town, near the apartments. [Points vaguely in a direction with his sword.]

Date: 2009-02-05 02:31 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] shoukanjutsu.livejournal.com
Of course. There is nothing more vital than knowledge.

Thank you for all the assistance; my name is Klarth ehhhhh . . . m? Err. Klarth . . . Well. Klarth something.

I'm Squalo. Good luck with that whole library idea. Let's hope your kidnapper left you a good book there. Vooi. I'm sure there are plenty of people in town willing to explain more things to you. [Because he doesn't really want to.]

From: [identity profile] shoukanjutsu.livejournal.com
Speaking of, I arrived with a few in my hands. Perhaps they'll be of use as well.

Date: 2009-02-05 02:43 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] novolumecontrol.livejournal.com
Maybe. If they are heavy enough you can throw them at the bears.

Date: 2009-02-05 02:58 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] shoukanjutsu.livejournal.com
Precisely.
. . .
. . .
. . .
Ahh. What?

Date: 2009-02-05 03:04 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] novolumecontrol.livejournal.com
Lately they've been temperamental. Too many people picking on them. They've been attacking just about anyone who looks like an easy target. But they don't come too close to town, so you should be safe.

Date: 2009-02-05 03:12 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] shoukanjutsu.livejournal.com
. . . Remind me to pick up some books on martial arts.

They have apartments here if you want somewhere to sleep.

Date: 2009-02-05 02:07 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] shoukanjutsu.livejournal.com
What? Excellent! Nearby?!

. . . Not that I wouldn't have done perfectly fine on my own, mind you.

Date: 2009-02-05 04:46 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] coolestsoul.livejournal.com
Depends where you are.

It doesn't really matter to me whether you sleep inside or outside, but usually people who show up eventually have their name written on the apartment roster.

Date: 2009-02-05 05:07 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] shoukanjutsu.livejournal.com
How convenient. With any luck, my last name will be on there. I feel so . . . incomplete.

You have my thanks, young man.

Date: 2009-02-05 05:10 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] coolestsoul.livejournal.com
No one remembers their last name when they get here, so I doubt it. I haven't seen anyone with the same name though. I could be wrong.

It's nothing.

Date: 2009-02-05 05:30 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] shoukanjutsu.livejournal.com
Interesting. Such selective memory loss . . .

My first name happens to be Klarth, by the way.

Date: 2009-02-05 05:34 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] coolestsoul.livejournal.com
You get used to it, surprisingly.

Soul Eater is my first name. Nice to meet you.

Date: 2009-02-05 05:40 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] shoukanjutsu.livejournal.com
Soul Ea --

. . . Would it be alright if I simply called you Soul? Good to meet you as well.

Date: 2009-02-05 01:15 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] coolestsoul.livejournal.com
I don't mind, sure, if it's easier for you.

From: [identity profile] thisflowergirl.livejournal.com
[She can't help but laugh despite it being a little rude.]

Are... are you all right? You look a little lost. Are you new here?

Date: 2009-02-05 02:58 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] shoukanjutsu.livejournal.com
Oh?

Yes, perfectly alright. Thank you for your concern, miss.

Date: 2009-02-05 03:25 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] thisflowergirl.livejournal.com
Sorry, you just seemed a little confused is all. Are you new? I'm Aerith. [She smiles.]

Date: 2009-02-05 03:29 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] shoukanjutsu.livejournal.com
Very good to meet you, Miss Aerith. I am Klarth.

As a matter of fact, I am. If you don't mind my asking . . . is there anything you can tell me about this place?

Date: 2009-02-05 05:26 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] deathly-origami.livejournal.com
Ooo! [book sense goes off, eyes light up at the sight of his books, tries to catch a glimpse of the title before realizing she's being rude]

Ooops, sorry, that wasn't nice of me. ^.^*

Are you new here too? You look disoriented.

Date: 2009-02-05 05:31 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] shoukanjutsu.livejournal.com
Hmm? Just a bit. Actually, I would much appreciate it if you could point me in the direction of the library.

Date: 2009-02-05 05:34 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] deathly-origami.livejournal.com
Oh, certainly, not a problem! The library here is absolutely wonderful! I can escort you if you like!

Ah, I'm sorry. I'm Yomiko! Nice to meet you!

Date: 2009-02-05 05:39 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] shoukanjutsu.livejournal.com
Ahh . . . That sounds very promising!

My name is Klarth. It is good to meet you as well, Miss Yomiko.

Date: 2009-02-05 05:46 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] deathly-origami.livejournal.com
Oh, you can just call me Yomiko. Miss seems a bit too formal for me. I'll be happy to help you find your way. The people here were very nice to me when I suddenly showed up!

[unable to restrain herself] What's the book you've got there?

Date: 2009-02-05 05:54 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] shoukanjutsu.livejournal.com
Hmm. A very good question. The title appears to be . . . 'Opuscule'.

There are a few others, as well, if you'd like to take a look, Yomiko.

Date: 2009-02-05 06:09 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] deathly-origami.livejournal.com
'Opuscule'? Hmm... that's not a word I'm familiar with.

...Intriguing!

Thank you for your kind offer, I would love have a look! I love books! ^_^ Heh, that's the only thing I seem to know about myself now! But I've been assured that everyone's memories come back with time. Has anyone explained Memento Eden to you yet?

Date: 2009-02-05 09:26 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] shoukanjutsu.livejournal.com
Hmm . . . Is that the name of this place?

I understand that most of the inhabitants suffer from memory loss, though the memories slowly return over time. Is that about the gist of it?

Date: 2009-02-06 04:55 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] deathly-origami.livejournal.com
Yes, as I understand it. For more details though, you should consult someone who has been here longer than I. Erk explained the majority of everything to me, you should seek her out! She works in the library!

Date: 2009-02-07 01:40 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] shoukanjutsu.livejournal.com
Hmm . . . I'll take that into consideration. Thanks again, Yomiko.

((I've actually sort of kinda continued this in the library log if you'd like to post there. No pressure, though.))

Ah? Be you a mage, ser?

Date: 2009-02-06 03:32 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] shoukanjutsu.livejournal.com
Hm. I hadn't thought too closely about it, but very possibly so. I shall have to run some experiments . . .

Any particular reason for the inquiry, miss?
