[ General Description ]
Rin is a well-built and healthy looking woman who stands at a respectable five feet and eight inches tall. Her build is one of someone who eats healthily and gets just enough exercise to stay in relatively good shape, though certainly not an athlete by any means. Her skin is a bit on the paler side, giving the accurate portrayal of someone who prefers to spend their time indoors. Rin also bears no easily visible scars nor tattoos, though it looks like her right ear was pierced some time long ago and has since healed over.

The near black strands of Rin's hair are often kept in simple styles but are prone to changing frequently. When she's working or studying she often ties her hair up in a ponytail which, accompanied by the rather stern expression she wears while working, typically serves to give her a much more mature appearance. Most other times however she simply leaves it down to do as it pleases, only taking care to fix her bangs. Every few months or so however when her hair reaches a certain length, she cuts it rather short before letting it grow out once more.

Her typical style of clothing is a bit plain, rarely flashy and often on the safe side with a preference for looser fitting shirts and coats along with dresses or skirts as opposed to tight pants or shorts. She strays away from loud colors or patterns, preferring more reserved tones of grays, whites, blacks, deep navy blues, or most commonly green. One commonality among her appearance no matter the circumstance are her trademark red glasses which she only seems to take off when she's sleeping.

[ Likes ]
Books || "What's not to love? Books are wonderful, amazing things... And, well, I could go on forever, so I'll leave it at that."
Libraries || "And what's better than a book? A building full of them!"
Learning/Discovering new things || "To expand one's mind and knowledge should be the goal and joy of any scholar."
Glasses || "Well... I guess I just like the way they look on people."
The color green || "Something about the color always seems to put me at ease."
Helping others || "Seeing others smile because of something I've done feels wonderful, and I think the world could do with a bit more kindness."
Owls || "Aren't they cute?!"

[ Dislikes ]
x Getting wet || "Such a pain... Having wet hair or clothes is so uncomfortable, not to mention the damage water can do to a book."
x Alcohol || "I'm uh... What they call a lightweight."
x Liars || "Human societies and relationships are built on trust and honesty, if you ask me, betraying that is just awful."
x Cooking || "If you must know... It's because I'm a horrid cook. Always have been and my Pa would never let me hear the end of it."
x Vegetables || "Erm... Well... It's a bit embarrassing to admit as an adult but, I really can't stand vegetables."

[ Strengths ]
Intelligence || Rin has always been a curious soul and a pursuer of knowledge with an ability to soak up new information quickly and efficiently. Being at home in libraries of all shapes and sizes, Rin has become an adept researcher with an eye for picking out the right book for the job.
Linguist || In her pursuit of knowledge Rin has picked up more than a few languages and has a knack for acquiring new ones easily.
Strong-willed || Rin holds to her beliefs with passion and determination, once she's set her mind to do something it's very hard to convince her to stop or to give up.
Perfect pitch || Ever since she was very young Rin could always identify and reproduce musical notes without error.

[ Weaknesses ]
Easily embarrassed/flustered || It's not hard to get under Rin's skin and get her blushing or flustered, even on accident.
Gullible || Rin often takes people and the things they say at face value, trusting that most people are honest. She has a hard time reading others or picking up on deception pointed in her direction.
Her glasses || Not only does she have very poor eyesight without her glasses, but she is very protective of them which can cause her quite a bit of stress in the event that they are lost or damaged.
Sweets || Rin absolutely can not resist sweets of any sort (though her favorite is definitely chocolate cake). Such foods can often be used as a bribe or reward to get her to do just about anything.

[ Personality ]
When first meeting Rin, she gives off the impression of someone who's a bit shy and quiet, the type of reserved girl who keeps to herself inside with a book. While this impression isn't totally inaccurate, those who spend a bit more time around her and who she becomes comfortable with come to see another side of her. A vibrant, passionate, and kind woman with an endearing and genuine smile who revels in the company of those she considers her friends and family within Fairy Tail. Though she sometimes need a bit of prodding from those around her, Rin can be very outgoing, energetic, and sociable, contrary to her rather bookwormish appearance and tendencies.

Rin is also quite studious in nature. Born with an indomitable curiosity of the world around her and an intensely inquisitive nature, she seeks to learn and discover new things at any and every opportunity. This unquenchable thirst for knowledge is what birthed the girl's love for books and libraries which lives on strong to this very day. Rin has always been dedicated to her pursuits of knowledge and is a very hard worker when the situation calls for it, possessing the ability to be serious and stern despite her typically jovial nature. It can sometimes be hard to break her free from this mindset once she's set in and it is often quite taxing on the girl's energy and emotions.

Ever since she was young Rin was never the best at dealing with her emotions calmly or reasonably. Always quick to blush and become flustered when confronted with anything that made her feel even the slightest bit embarrassed, Rin is a woman who wears her emotions on her sleeve and who couldn't deceive her way out of a wet paper bag. When a thought or emotion makes her uncomfortable her usual response is to simply avoid the subject, and as a result has a hard time being totally honest with her feelings, particularly when it comes to someone she might be attracted to.






Image[ History ]
Rin's history is not a noteworthy one, the only child of her father the baker and her mother the florist, her childhood and life growing up was quite quaint and happy. Always a daddy's girl, Rin gave her all in order to please her parents, in particular her father, and was overjoyed at any praise she received for her actions. Being the bookworm she was, Rin didn't make many friends among the other children, her friends were her books and her playground the library. The local librarian became something of a mentor and teacher to her, and would eventually be the one to teach Rin her magic.

Between her time spent learning what she could, helping her parents with their work, and practicing her magic, Rin had little time for much else. Her life moved at a slow, but enjoyable pace like this for several years. Slowly but surely however her curiosity and desire to see more of the world grew, there was so much she had read and heard about all sorts of things out in the world, but she had never experienced any of them. After spending much time considering her options, she decided to join Fairy Tail, and though her parents were naturally worried, they sent their daughter off proudly to pursue her dreams. Though Rin's time in Fairy Tail has been fairly short up to this point, she's enjoyed every moment of it and has no regrets leaving her old life behind.

'Ow...' That was the only thought in Rin's head at that moment as she begrudgingly returned consciousness. Her neck, her back, her jaw, it was all quite sore. Slowly she sat up in the uncomfortable wooden chair she found herself in, her back popping satisfactorily as she fixed her disheveled glasses and glanced around the library she had fallen asleep in. Certainly not an uncommon happening for the book-loving girl.

With a yawn she rose to her feet and stretched before meandering slowly over to the door of the library, unlocking and opening it and stepping outside into the morning sunshine. Bathing in the warmth of sunlight she stretched once again, taking much more time with it as she listened in to the morning sounds around her. While one might expect the pleasant chirping of birds, here in Fairy Tail, such sounds are essentially non-existent. Even this early in the morning the most prominent noise was the rowdy sounds of a fight from the hall not too far off. Rin sighed and turned around to head back into the library, sometimes she wondered if she really belonged here.

She took the seat she was sleeping in not long ago and glanced down at the book that had served as her pillow the night before. She found herself immediately sucked back in as she began to read, her hand reaching down to the side of her chair and into her bag to retrieve an apple she had brought with her as a snack for yesterday. With a loud chomp she bit into the red fruit and crossed her legs as she continued to read. She had no problems spending most of her day like this, if she got hungry she would go get more food once things had calmed down and if someone needed her they would know exactly where to find her.

Amidst the chaos of the main hall slipped a small shape, who nervously dodged between the flying tables, chairs, and bodies as yet another typical brawl erupted amongst the assembled guild members. But although she moved amidst this rather spectacular scene of violence, nobody seemed to notice her or pay her any mind.

Aina smiled faintly, clutching her tome tightly as she ducked to avoid a blast of ice from one of the battling mages, then hastily sidestepped as his opponent rejoined with his own magic. The rune-inscribed slip of parchment hanging from the crescent ornament adorning her hat seemed to be working, since nobody had actually seen her or tried to deliberately attack her.

Using the command "The person wearing this rune will not be percieved," might have seemed like a bit of overkill, no matter how socially awkward she might have been, just for a trip to the request board. But considering last time she'd tried moving amidst one of these Fairy Tail barfights, somebody had thrown a table at her, she'd decided it would be best to just stay out of people's notice for the time being.

It seemed that today was lively as ever. Miss Artist had just finished assaulting a new kid over stealing her caramels, and the incorrigible frog-boy was trying to cuddle her like always. The Guild Master, meanwhile, was unleashing an unholy beating on pretty much anyone who got near him. With a loud crash, somebody plowed through a row of tables and skidded past the invisible bookworm, forcing her to sidestep to evade a shower of broken pieces of furniture.

"It's no wonder furniture shops here have such low prices. They can afford to, with the amount of replacements we have to buy every week..." Murmured the girl as she stepped gingerly over the fallen combatant and towards the request board. Looking over it, she searched for a quest that might be within her capabilities.

"Let's see... Defeat a monster that's been plaguing Balsam... Apprehend a group of bandits...? As usual, they're all combat quests..." She sighed dejectedly. "There's no way I could handle something like this..." She said gloomily, turning to skulk away. She'd just go to the library and read some books. Maybe there'd be an easier quest for her to do later.

To her surprise, however, she turned directly into a rather tall cloaked figure. Her rune to keep people from noticing her would prevent him from feeling much of an impact, but she, light as she was, found herself stumbling backward and falling shamefacedly on her rear. It was a good thing nobody could see her right now, or else she'd probably have been the laughingstock of the whole guild. She sighed again, her voice heard only by herself as her rune continued to mask her presence. Rising to her feet, she shuffled gloomily out of the hall, leaving what was by now a combat zone as the last of the power of her rune fizzled out, returning her to visibility. Wandering down the hall, she headed into the guild's humble library to find some reading material, since she'd already finished the books she'd last borrowed.

She sighed again as she wandered amongst the shelves, selecting a few interesting-looking books as she passed. As usual, she hadn't even found a quest she could do to contribute to the guild. Maybe she should have just given up and quit. It was becoming abundantly clear that she wasn't being of any use around here, in any case. Heading over into the corner, she had intended to take a seat and read a bit before heading out to go shopping for her day's lunch, but it seemed that here, too, her plans were thwarted. Somebody had already claimed the corner seat.

"Oh..." She murmured gloomily. "S-sorry to bother you." Stammering this quick apology, she turned to leave. Today just wasn't her day...

Kidemonas was sore all over. He'd been up since before dawn, working on perfecting a new set of drills he'd picked up. Now, dry and clothed after taking a refreshing dip in a river to clean up, he planned on checking to see if there was anything worthwhile on the guild's request board, or, if not, would relax with a decent read in the library.

The scene in the main hall was, as Kidemonas had expected, a bar fight. He knew better than to walk through the middle of a Fairy Tail bar fight, so he instead took a roundabout route to the requests board. The S-Rank missions were, to his disappointment, almost all escort missions or missions that required a skill set he lacked. Some of the other missions, however, were tempting. "Defeat a Monster near Balsam... Bandits harassing local trade routes... I'll keep these in mind, leave them up for a bit longer and let some of the new blood have their turns before I take them on."

Then, with the scuffle behind him intensifying, he headed up the stairs for the library.

Unsurprisingly, the library was mostly empty, save for Rin, who seemed to live in the library anyways. He made his way to the nonfiction section, picked out a few new books that had been recently added to the Guild's library, and headed over to a table to read. About five minutes later, though, he was interrupted by a quiet voice behind him.

"Oh..." Kidemonas turned around to see the purple locks of... what was her name? Annie? Anna? Aina! That was it. "S-sorry to bother you." She turned back around, with a rather impressive collection of reading in her hands.

"Better off staying up here in the quiet." Kidemonas said. "Library's the only place that you can get any reading done when the guild's having fun down in the hall." He smiled at the girl, and patted the chair next to him. "Don't worry, I don't bite."

Rin continued to munch away at her apple at a slow and steady pace as she read, working the apple all the way down to its core before setting it aside. With the little snack out of the way she leaned forward towards the book with a small smile and let herself slip off into immersion in the bit of fiction she held in her hands. So much so was she immersed that she didn't notice the two visitors to the library, even as they began to wander the shelves and browse.

It wasn't until a feminine voice spoke up that Rin was pulled away from little world and back to reality. As her gaze traveled up to the source of the voice she noticed not just one, but two visitors. They seemed to be chatting about something and as the man patted the open chair next to him the girl looked a bit nervous. Quickly, Rin grabbed the book and moved up to her feet before dipping her head in a small now towards the two. "Ah! Um, I'm sorry I didn't notice either of you come in..." As she adjusted her glasses and looked the pair over it seemed that they had already found whatever books they were looking for, but she continued on anyways.

"It looks like you've both found some books already but... If you were looking for anything in particular I'd be happy to help you find it... And, uh, feel free to use this seat here if you'd like..." She made a gesture to the window-side chair she had just vacated before moving to step behind the librarian's desk that was situated not too far off. A sigh escaped her parted lips as she set her book down and stared down at the wooden desktop feeling a bit embarrassed. 'Gods I'm so oblivious...'

She reached up to pinch the bridge of her nose before taking a deep breath and shaking her head in an attempt to cast aside her negative thoughts for the time being and put on a small smile as she looked back up at the pair of visitors. It wasn't often that people came to the library so Rin was honestly quite happy to see them.

"Ah! Um, I'm sorry I didn't notice either of you come in... It looks like you've both found some books already but... If you were looking for anything in particular I'd be happy to help you find it... And, uh, feel free to use this seat here if you'd like..." So speaking, the girl in the corner quickly rose, offering the seat to Aina, who shook her head nervously.

"No, it's fine," She replied quietly. "I already found plenty of stuff, and I can always just go somewhere else..." She trailed off, feeling a bit awkward at having prompted such an unexpectedly courteous reaction. As far as she knew, Fairy Tail didn't really have its own official librarian, so that meant this girl must have chosen to take on that duty herself. To trouble someone merely enjoying their hobby to the fullest just so she could get a seat would have been terribly rude of her. Still, there weren't really many other good places to read around the guild. She supposed she could return to the main hall, but with all the ruckus down there, it would be hard to concentrate. Plus, as a guild member who hadn't really done anything notable, she'd be liable to get targeted by some brash youth looking to prove his or her skills with magic by sparring the other guild members without actually risking a fight with anybody too powerful. Combat wasn't exactly her forte, and the noise would have given her a headache, at any rate, so that was right out.

"Better off staying up here in the quiet. Library's the only place that you can get any reading done when the guild's having fun down in the hall." The sudden words gave voice to all of her prior thoughts, but to her surprise, they weren't her own. Turning around, she saw somebody she hadn't noticed on her way in, seated in one of two chairs by a small table in the corner. Offering this second seat to her, he gave a reassuring smile. "Don't worry, I don't bite." He chuckled, causing Aina to flush slightly with shame. Had her reaction to his sudden appearance really seemed that frightened? Although the prospect of sitting right across from somebody would probably make her feel no end of awkwardness - personal space was a very sacred concept to her, and making eye contact a challenge she had yet to overcome - it still sat better with her conscience - ooh, that was actually a pretty good pun! - to take up this gentleman's offer than to steal the chair the other girl had been using.

"Err... Thanks..." She mumbled slightly, sitting down and fidgeting with her cap as she sorted through the books she'd selected. Her choices in reading could be called schizophrenic at best, considering that in the small stack of assorted literature now sitting on the table in front of her contained everything from books of old myths and legends to novels to treatises on rune magic. As she was sorting through this mishmash pile of reading material, however, she allowed her eyes to momentarily scan over the face of the man across from her. To her surprise, she recognized him.

Wait wait wait wait wait...! This guy... is the S-Ranked mage known as the Sword Saint?! Aina thought, her eyes widening in surprise and recognition as she hastily averted her gaze, opening a book at random and beginning to frantically "read" through it, trying to hide her growing unease, awe, and embarrassment behind its pages. What's somebody like that doing here?! He's my superior in every way, yet he's offering to share his table with me? I'm probably just bothering him by being here. Maybe I should just leave. But then he'd think I was scared of him, or something. Wouldn't that be really rude? Gaaah! I don't know how to deal with this at all!

"Ah! Um, I'm sorry I didn't notice either of you come in... It looks like you've both found some books already but... If you were looking for anything in particular I'd be happy to help you find it..." Kidemonas couldn't help but smile. He could respect someone who immersed themselves into whatever they did. "And, uh, feel free to use this seat here if you'd like..." This last comment seemed directed at Aina, but she took Kidemonas up on his own offer instead.

"Err... Thanks..." Aina mumbled. She sat down next to him and started fidgeting with her cap as she sorted through the books she'd selected. Kidemonas went back to his own reading. It was a book of mythology, more of a compilation of several unrelated stories than a single, cohesive tale. The other two books on the table in front of him were a comprehensive history of the Guilds in Fiore, and an advanced-level tome on Elemental Magic that Kidemonas was using to hone his Sword Magic technique.

Kidemonas finished another myth, and looked up to grab another book, while taking a look at Aina's selection. To his surprise, her selection of reading material was just as scatter-brained as his was: Mythology and magical application, with some other reading thrown in for good measure. Of particular interest to him was the book she had in her face right now. "Rune Magic?" He asked. "I'm not familiar with that particular brand of magic. Can you wield it?"

Even though both of his eyes were closed, he could tell that someone was getting closer and he decided to keep both of his eyes closed. He heard a familiar voice speak. I apologize for the intrusion, Kenan. He opened one of his eyes as if to say, It's fine. I was already awake. I would like to ask if you are interested in joining me in a certain quest. He watched her hold up a piece of paper that showed a job that required some wizards to help escort a certain item in Oak Town. He looked at it with interest. This might be a chance to form a team, but he was't sure whether or not Princess was a team player or not. I guess this was his way of finding out. He sighed. He put his feet off of the table and sat up. "I suppose it wouldn't hurt. I was looking for a job earlier, so I guess I should be glad that you came along." He stood up and looked Princess over. She was always polite and she pretty much charmed every person. Including him. He wouldn't admit it out loud, but he thought that Princess wasn't half bad. She had a personality that was alluring to him, even though most people may be driven away from her because of her extreme rule following and strictness, but he honestly didn't mind. He was happy he got to spend time on a job with her. He might actually be able to make a team despite most everyone being scared of him.

"When do you plan on leaving? If it's now, I'm pretty much already ready, so if that's the case. We should get moving." Secretly, he was hoping no one else was coming along. He was hoping that he would get to see a different of Princess from what he usually sees.

Lilly looked at the Guild Master as she blushed. As she looked at him, she didn't even notice that Princess had been walking towards the guild master. As she noticed, she quickly moved out of the way. Princess was not someone that she needed to be overly cheery around. She seemed like the type who might get annoyed by her behavior and she didn't want to test that theory. "Pardon me, Lilly. M. Minor." She looked at Princess as she said that. Lilly security thought that a more suitable name for her was "Ice Princess" but she dared not to laugh in front of Princess. She was always so cold towards others. Lilly was constantly on edge when she was around. She looked at the guild master right before he left. "Bye bye Guild Master!" She waved as she put on a cheery smile. She watched as Princess walked over to Kenan and showed him a piece of paper. She wondered if this would turn into a bad situation but she was shocked when Kenan had stood up and didn't start a fight with her. She jaw dropped as she watched Kenan be awoken from a nap and he just brushed it off like it was nothing. This was a historic moment. She saved this image in her mind as she thought how Princess did it. If anyone else ever woke him from a nap... Well... They received a beating that put them closer to death than ever before. She was close to experiencing this... Luckily she tripped on something on the floor and got knocked out. Her head hurt after that incident, but it's gotten better. She decided to run back over to Art because she felt like she wanted some candy. "Hey Art... Can I have one of your caramels? Pretty please!" She tried to make the cutest puppy face in the history of puppy faces. She waited for Art's response. If she said no though, she was going to take a caramel anyway because she knew that Art would forgive her... She hoped.

"I suggest for you to rest. Because, once I come back. I want your undivided attention."

M. blinked then tilted his head. He was quite clueless when someone comes on to him. Shame really, he's not bad looking. Nodding his head, he went on his way to the library.

Cooing to Minor, he opened the door to the library and hummed in greeting to the people present with a cheerful smile. No need to bother people just because he's in a tired mood. A good nap and solitude will fix that. He turns to the corner of the library where his hammock of sorts is positioned. This is where he goes to be alone if he comes to the guild. The books that he collected around his travels are stacked up beside the hammock and a bag of fresh fruits are waiting for him. 'Really,' he thought with a smile. 'Looks like people know where to find me.'

Tucking Minor in, he sat with his back on a pillow and continued reading about fighting techniques that is beneficial when focusing your magic energy to your legs and the entire length of your arm.

Amidst the noise of her pawing at her tinkling little bell that was as golden as her eyes and the battle royale taking place behind her was a very familiar sound. Her poor little Apple Pie and his lack of whistling ability, the most basic of abilities. She didn't turn her head simply because there was no need to. Her green haired friend was soon piled into her lap with his face buried deep within her breasts, his arms around her tightly. She gave a light smirk and patted his head gently with a gleam in her eyes. “Oh, you like?” Of course he did; Apple adored everything about her. The two of them seemed to have hit it off the moment they met. Well, actually, he had taken a shine to her before she had to him. She could recall quite perfectly the first time they'd met.

Five years ago...


The forest was an absolutely wonderful place and it was where The Artist felt most at home. It wasn't as large as the forest Thornieux raised her in but it didn't matter because it was still a forest nonetheless. And almost more than anything, she loved the hot springs sprinkled around the forest. She would often to retreat to them and seek solace there to think. This particular little slice of heaven was her own private spot that she wouldn't let even her guild mates go near. It was concealed beneath the hanging branches of a great willow tree bearing delicate and multiple beautiful pink leaves and silver flowers that made a thick curtain that would part for her and close behind her. It would take most people a good three minutes to push through. Well, it would if the tree didn't lash out, wrap up, and toss away anyone but her that would try to go through. On this particular day she discarded all of her clothes and slipped into the steaming waters, sinking in until the water went up to her chin. She had just gotten back into town after dealing with a large pack of Lizardmen that had migrated towards an old village being studied by archaeologists - She tended to take a lot of jobs for archaeologists because she liked their line of work and often got paid with cool antiques. The water was relaxing and she all but lost herself in it. It wasn't until she had stepped out an hour later that she discovered she was being spied on. There was a flash of green and white as a branch snapped and a figure fell from the tree, landing at her feet. Glaring, she immediately placed a foot on his throat.

“Wheet-whoo!”
“...Excuse me?”
“You're The Artist!”
“Thank you, Captain Obvious... How did you get past the tree?”
“Magic.”
“What magic?”
“Earth God Slayer!”
“...Impressive.. Next time you want a peek, just ask. Dipshit. You ever come back here without my permission and I'll kill you.”
“Yes ma'am!


She beat the shit out of the younger Apple as he gratefully accepted it with a smile and nosebleed and dragged him out afterward only for him to later show up and announce that she was his favorite guild mate. It took a year or so but she finally did warm up to him and they developed a relationship that was just about as uncomfortable for the others as their guild master's behavior towards them most times. Or at least it was so for the more squeamish, prude, and modest members. It didn't really faze either of them though. Art was very much pro self-expression. Of course she had her limits, but even within those limits some thought her to be extremely crass. She wasn't a highly sexual person when it came to most people but if you ever put her in the same room as Apple, Shin, Hibiki, or Kidemonas and it was on. She wasn't crushing on any of them, not that she knew of, but she enjoyed making Kide squirm and entertaining the other three with over saturated antics of love and lust.

Her eyes lit up more when her lips curved into a wide smile that revealed sharp cuspids as he offered her a bag of candy even then offering to hand feed a piece to her. Before she could take it she could see another flying at her from M.'s kick. Grinning, she reached out and snatched it with a nod of appreciation before looking back at Apple. He was practically quivering with excitement. He was always this way when she returned from a job even if only lasted a day. He was even more excited when he came back from his own jobs. Whenever he actually did them. Her longest job to date had her gone for three years. It was one that she was often questioned about but she would never talk about.

Smirking, she pushed him away from her breasts to tuck in the bag from M. to save for later. Her head bent down and she curled her tongue around the candy, pulling it into her mouth. Tucking it in the back of her mouth between her cheek and teeth, she leaned forward so that her lips brushed against his ear gently. “Meow.” In a swift motion, she shoved him out of her lap and onto the floor. She grabbed hold of a grey and white egg that was given to her... Well. She sort of stole it. She had tried to barter for it but they wouldn't give it up. She didn't mind going to jail. Again. But she didn't have much time to inspect it before Lilly came bouncing in about some boutique and outfits and whatever else before she disappeared. Lilly was another Dragon Slayer. She hadn't been in the guild but for a few months but she was slowly growing on The Artist. By the time Lilly had bounced away she was ready to inspect the egg again but stopped short.

Hibiki was playing his music.

Art was an extremely confident woman. Why shouldn't she be? She excelled in everything that she did and was adored by many. She had reached S-Class at the tender age of nineteen after failing the first trial during her first year in Fairy Tail. She was the guild's only female S-Class and she liked to think of herself as a role model. She was, after all, training both Lilly and Apple. She was especially confident when it came to her art related talents. She could sing and dance better than any other in Fiore, sculpt, draw, paint, write, act and so much more and put "the best" to shame. She was a true virtuoso. Her capability to compose music was near unmatched, as was her ability to play instruments. She felt inferior to nobody. Not in art. Not in combat. Not in anything.

But...

When Hibiki played...

She couldn't feel any more inferior in her talent. His skills were so beautiful that she nearly cried upon hearing him play for the first time. She would never again play an instrument around him or even so much as dare to touch one even though he would compliment her. She felt like a child who'd played terribly out of tune and he was like a master of the craft simply giving her pity to encourage her. His music forced her to feel more passionately, as she had when she was but a child training with her papa dragon. She bowed her head and cradled the egg to her as he played, mumbling a song under her breath where none could hear her. She recalled Hibiki asking her to play with a few times but she would always refuse. She would sing and dance to his music... But never play alongside him.

She cuddled her egg, burying her face against the thick shell that had some strange sort of fuzz...or down...or fur. It was so soft yet hard. She was lost in the music so much that she hadn't noticed The Princess making her announcement. Not that she would have paid much mind anyways. She didn't dislike Reisha and actually had quite a bit of respect for her. She simply didn't tend to pay much mind because when The Princess addressed everyone as a group it was usually something about behaving, being polite, cleaning up something, or some other trivial matter that The Artist didn't care for. However, their Guild Master caught her attention and she gave a light nod, her gently dazed expression becoming a coy and seductive one as she "caught" his blown kiss, placing her middle and index finger against his lips.

Just as she stood to go to the S-Class job board, Lilly had bounced over to beg for some of her caramels. “You haven't earned my caramels.” She spoke of the sweets that she was now packing up along with everything else as though it were her heart. There was a slight slur to her tone, as she over salivated a bit from the multiple candies tucked between her teeth and cheeks. She made her way towards the balcony, taking one giant leap that took her to the top, offering Hibiki a wave midair. The second floor was another place she went to think. The other S-Class Wizards didn't bother her there and they were the only other ones allowed up there. she quickly snatched the highest paying job before walking back to the balcony, taking a seat on the rail with her legs crossed, waving the paper. “Lill. Apple Pie. Go start packing; Include some swimwear. We're going to go training.” She wasn't asking. Her head then turned to scan the crowd, her lips pursing a bit. “I need one more person! Maybe two! No one under Rank B! The reward is ten million! Any volunteers?” Of course with the reward being so high nearly everyone wanted to join. But with it being an S-Class job with a high price that meant it was more dangerous. She let her eyes scan the crowd with a thoughtful expression, her fingers curling tighter around her egg.

He was tired. His face is emotionless except for his eyes which convey tiredness. He barely slept when he was at his mission, master did say to rest. He can't rest yet though, he saw an interesting request on the S-class board. One that gives a golden key. Hopefully it's the one he's looking for, the only one missing from his comrades. The cat, who's often overlooked and forgotten. The thirteenth key.

Pushing himself up, he strolled out with a book under his arms to the request board. Pulling off the paper, he read the details. There wasn't much on it, just the reward and a client.

'Secret of the Lupine,' he folded it and slid it in between the pages he was reading. 'That's a good reward, although i'll probably just give most of the money to someone else.'

Looking up at the sound of a voice, he saw Art wave a paper around gathering everyones attention. She has the right idea, maybe he should ask someone to go with him. 'If I could only find someone who can interpret most of my hums' he smiled in amusement.

Walking back to the library, he started singing a song he learned up from the north. It hangs and glides around the air, with his voice rising and falling like waltz. It gives the feeling of being out in a forest at night, with the stars above you. The words are in a language not commonly spoken here. M. sings the song whenever he feels homesick and or tired.

The song ended just as he touched the door to the library. He remembered that there were some people in the library. Smiling more naturally at this discovery, he opened the door. He pulled down his cloak to reveal his face and spoke to them.
"Pardon me, but would any of you care to accompany me in this quest?" Wow. That's a lot of words from him today, but he guessed he might as well be clear. Looking around with a pleasant smile but the rest of his face is monotonous, except there's a curious spark in his eyes. "Anyone is welcome. I'm afraid i need some assistance with this one."

Rin busied herself with some minor work behind her desk as the others in the library moved about and had their quiet conversations. She steadily began to tune the noises out as her gaze turned to the window and outside, her mind wandering this way and that about this latest book she had been reading. She gave a yawn as her stomach growled quietly in protest of its current emptiness before looking back over to the small group of three that had gathered together in the library.

She tuned back in in time to catch something about a mission, and the small pink girl seemingly explaining, in quite some detail, her magic and her book. Rin listened with curiosity and interest but the girl cut herself short, apparently feeling embarrassed for some reason or another and then promptly disappeared from sight. She gave a small frown at that, she wanted to know more about it, especially the book, but with a shrug she let it go and stood up from her seat before walking over to the group. It had been quite some time since she had gone out on a mission, perhaps it was time to change that.

"Excuse me... And apologies if I'm interrupting, but I couldn't help overhearing your conversation... And well, if you've the room for one more I would like to come along and help as well... With all four us, we're kind of like Team Library aren't we?" She smiled slightly awkwardly at that as she adjusted her red glasses, looking a slight bit embarrassed about the lame name. "Ah, my name's Rin by the way... I'm sort of the volunteer librarian here, I practice Solid Script magic and I'd be happy to lend the power of my words to you." With her introduction complete she gave a small now towards the group, hopeful that she didn't come across as rude with her sudden introduction.

"You're not interrupting, it would great to have your help as well," He gave a low chuckle. "In fact I think we would need your knowledge in this quest."

He pulled up a chair and sat down. He placed the paper on the table for everyone to see and beckoned Rin to sit closer. Once she sat down, words appeared on the paper with a light blue light.

Archaeologist Zabala is in need of escorts and researchers.
Wizards adept in puzzles, magical locks and piecing together clues.
We are also in need of strong wizards capable of defending us from the dangers once we are inside.
Location is in the northern part of Fiore, otherwise known as Dagger's tip.
We had uncovered an ancient ruin which seems to be a place of worship for a tribe known as Lupine.


M. hummed in anticipation. He looked at his partners for the quest and said "How are we going to split the rewards? To be honest i'm here for the discovery and the key," He beamed at them with closed eyes. "I don't mind if i don't get any of the jewels. As long as i get the key i'll be satisfied."

Fortunately for Aina, whose disappearance into thin air seemed to have rather put off the man who had invited her so enthusiastically to join him, the arrival of the librarian turned attention away from her rather pathetic attempts at social interaction. As she felt her cheeks begin to cool, something occurred to her that she had missed during her initial panic. While she'd been so busy trying to make herself disappear, the man to whom she'd spoken had said something important. He'd recognized her Tome of Ark, and the runes it used. Her eyes widened. Nobody save herself had ever seemed to know much about her magic, but this man was familiar with it? Was he another user of King's Script?

Fading back into visibility as she deactivated her rune, feeling confident that she could at least speak without stuttering after taking a moment to compose herself, and not wanting to insult the man further by hiding from what had just been an honest - if rather forceful - statement of recognition.

"Thank you for your kind words," Said the purple-haired mage quietly, shaking her head slightly as she returned to her seat. "But I wouldn't really call myself a very capable mage. At least, not in a combative capacity. I'm kind of stupid, and a bit weak..." She trailed off, flushing slightly as her mind finally processed the last thing he'd muttered under his breath, words her keen ears probably weren't meant to hear. "I don't think anybody's ever called me cute before, either." She mumbled, more to herself than the man, although just as she had heard his words, he might very well have heard hers.

"Team Library, huh?" The shy magus repeated with a timid smile. She'd never been part of a team before, so it was a bit nerve-wracking for her, but nevertheless, she couldn't help but feel happy despite her uncertainty and confusion. She'd never expected that today, of all days, she'd find a job lucrative enough to pay for her personal expenses for at least the next two months once everything was divided up, and more capable mages she could assist in completing it.

"I think I can handle the puzzles and locks mentioned in the note. My Trace Script is good at analyzing pre-constructed forms of magic like other runes, and with King's Script, I'm fairly confident in my ability to rewrite them to make them harmless to us. I'm not sure about the combat part, though. I can increase the effectiveness of our fighters, but I don't really have any powerful spells recorded that I could use to help in a fight..." She trailed off. She'd spoken of what few talents she had. Now it was time to get to the more awkward part - asking about her payment. She didn't want to be rude, especially considering that this quest hadn't been her idea in the first place. Since she was just an assistant, she couldn't expect to get paid very highly, comparatively speaking - perhaps 500,000 Jewels at the most. Even so, that would be more than enough to cover her expenses. Mustering her courage at last - after all, the man who had asked them to join had said all he was interested in was the key - she decided to settle on the shrewd negotiation tactic of asking for the "high" sum of 750,000 Jewels, and bargaining down to a more "reasonable" - in her mind - value if she had to.

"As for payment... it's a little selfish, but could I ask for 750,000 Jewels of the reward money? I don't really get the chance to do jobs often, since I'm not very good at combat magic, so I kind of need to take whatever rewards I can actually get..." She asked quietly, avoiding their eyes as she spoke so as not to seem too demanding. Come to think of it, though, as she waited for an answer, she realized something. The man who had invited her hadn't stated his name or magic, although he'd asked for theirs. Although he'd recognized her runes, judging by the fact that he was after the Celestial Spirit key, he was probably a Spirit mage, rather than a rune-user like herself. Aina smiled slightly to herself. She'd always kind of wanted to try learning how to summon spirits of her own. If she could do that, she'd be able to have a whole band of friends right in her pocket. How wonderful that would be, she thought. Although, it was probably just as well that she didn't, she realized. She'd probably end up making a horrible partner for such a dignified being as a spirit.

"Umm... Also, not to be rude, but... What was your name again, Mr...?" She trailed off, her gaze darting between the man who had accosted her and the table, making it clear to whom she spoke, as well as the awkwardness she felt about asking him for his name when everybody else seemed to know him.

"Ah yes sorry, i didn't exactly introduce myself did I? My name is M. Ursa, pleasure to meet you." He tilted his head and smiled. "I suppose it's fair to also tell you my magic. I am a Celestial wizard and use the fourth Wargod's fighting technique," he paused. "This will be an S-rank magic, it might take a few days. I suggest we prepare for the journey. Thank you very much for accompanying me everyone."

Aina gave a sheepish smile, making a mental note of the man's name as he introduced himself. M. Ursa, hmm? That was a somewhat strange name, she mused. Was M. his first initial, or actually his first name? It would be pretty weird if the first were true. Well, she didn't want to sound foolish by just calling him "M" if that was just his initial, so she decided she'd refer to him as "Mr. Ursa" for the time being so as to be polite. But now she was kind of curious... It would have seemed stupid to ask, though, so she held her tongue.

It seemed he was a Celestial Spirit mage, as she'd guessed. She thought again what a wonderful power that must have been, feeling excited as she anticipated meeting his Spirit partners. She had never spoken to a Spirit before. It would probably be a very enlightening experience, so she would have to be as respectful and polite as possible. Her thoughts wandered, asking questions such as "What is it like in the Spirit World?" or "How many Spirits are there in total?" and other such random things she would probably want to know if she ever got the chance to ask about them, so that if that time came, she'd have a few queries on hand and wouldn't let it slip past her.

And then, quite abruptly, the man said something that immediately brought her thoughts crashing back down to earth, her eyes widening in surprise as she hastily hid her face behind her book once again. She was only asking herself one question now.

"Oh no. What have I gotten myself into?" She thought, a chill running up her spine.

This was an S-Class quest. She was by no means incompetent, but she would certainly call herself cowardly and inexperienced. She'd only done a few basic tasks such as escorting convoys or finding lost objects or investigating mysterious happenings or what have you, and on all of those missions, she'd been alone. She had no idea how to work on a team, let alone how to fight a enemies classified to be opponents suitable only for the most powerful of wizards. Immediately, she feared the worst, that she'd be overwhelmed by the responsibilities placed on her, and that she'd only be a burden to the rest of the team. But looking back at the others surrounding the table, she realized she didn't have the courage to tell them that she hadn't even checked what level the quest was before volunteering, that she was so stupid that she hadn't even confirmed that the job was in her league before taking it. They'd probably laugh at her, and tell her to get lost. Then she'd be back to being on her own again. Nobody would notice her, much less help her. This was the first time... the first time anybody had actually cared for her company enough to actually approach her and start a conversation. It was her only chance to work with other, more experienced mages, to improve her own skills, to get the money she needed to afford any sort of lifestyle beyond begging on the streets. If she didn't want to lose her first and only chance to escape from the poverty that had defined her existence, she had to take this job. She had to succeed here, and prove that she wasn't just a burden!

That didn't change the fact that she was terrified, though. Standing up, she hastily turned away, trying to hide the fact that she was trembling in fear and anxiety. "I-I-I'll just be doing that, then..." She stammered uneasily, brushing away the cold sweat that had begun to form on her brow. "G-getting ready for a trip! Right... ThankyouallsomuchforinvitingmeI'llgodothatnowbye!" Gasping out this hastily self-excusement, she bowed so deeply one might have feared she'd hit her head on the floor, then darted away behind the stacks.

...A hand shot out a moment later, snatching the cap that hadn't even finished falling to the ground from the force of her violent bow, then darted away, followed by several loud thuds and a closing door shortly thereafter.

Aina sighed, wandering back down the hall from whence she'd come. She hadn't been able to say it - to tell them that this was beyond her capacity as a mage. But it was too late for that now. She'd gotten herself into this mess. Now she'd just have to live with the consequences.

That knowledge still did little, however, to change the fact that she was terrified. She gave a pathetic utterance that was half-sigh, half-groan, wiping her eyes as the stress threatened her practically nonexistent dignity with the further stain of tears. But she wouldn't cry. She was grown up and strong now. If people needed her, she'd help them. She had to!

...Nope. Wasn't working. Still terrified.

She turned, violently swinging open a random door and stepping inside. Surprisingly, the door lead out to a balcony off the side of the Guild Hall - a nice place to sit and calm herself down - and even more surprisingly, there weren't any people there to disturb her. Shutting the door, she gazed down at the town of Magnolia, and all the hustle and bustle below her, the dreadful thought of the danger into which she had unwittingly thrown herself growing and growing as it weighed upon her mind, the town painting itself in unusual, blurry colors as the tears she'd tried to force back came on again. Why had it come to this? Why was it that she had no choice but to risk her life if she wanted to live it? All those people down in the guild hall seemed so happy, as though they didn't have a care in the world. Weren't they afraid, too? Didn't they worry that their lives would come to an end with each increasingly difficult peril they fearlessly threw themselves into?

Of course not. They were strong. They were brave. They could more than handle themselves, despite the peril. This was Fairy Tail, the strongest guild in the kingdom of Fiore. It was a place that a weak, scared little girl like her wasn't worthy of standing in. She wasn't like them, even if the mark on her chest tried to say otherwise. She couldn't fight by their sides, or achieve any of the great and marvelous deeds that they made their lives' work in doing. She knew that... so why was she still trying? Why was she throwing herself so recklessly into a mission she already knew she couldn't handle?

She didn't know. She never knew. But she always did it anyway - always rushing in without thinking, always acting without hesitation, always regretting it when her own limitations became clear, always fearing that each daring act would be her last. But she couldn't give up, no matter how much she wanted to. It was so pathetic, and yet... her only means of avoiding poverty was to keep on fighting this way, upholding her ideals, and hoping for the best, even though she knew the risks of doing so. She brushed her eyes frantically, trying to wipe away the tears of fear, those shameful, disgusting, immature, cowardly tears that wouldn't stop falling. Finally, as though forced back by her sheer determination not to give in to the fear that had brought them on in the first place, they dissipated, leaving only a faint red haze around the edges of her eyes, and a matching tint in her blushing, embarrassed countenance.

Aina was still terrified. But she would be a brave, strong girl and wouldn't show it, wouldn't drag anyone else into the fear and misery she felt. That, at least, was something she could do.

The wind blew faintly across the balcony, and she turned to go. She had a lot of preparations to make if she was going to set out on such a large journey. It would take all of her remaining budget, but preservable food and camping equipment shouldn't have been too difficult to acquire in a city that housed such a large guild as Fairy Tail. She'd set to work immediately, and hopefully save the others some of the burden. Nodding glumly to herself, she once more opened the door, put on a brave face, and set forth to meet the task at hand. She was Aina Scheherazade, a wizard of Fairy Tail. She definitely wouldn't give up now!

As the discussion of how to split the payment arose Rin simply shrugged, "I don't particularly mind how it's split... I only expect a reasonable cut for myself... If Miss Aina needs 750,000 I'm not opposed to accommodating that need with the reward." She cast her gentle smile in the girl's direction before looking over at the other two men present. Through only the merit of having overheard from their conversations Rin spent a moment to register the names and faces before her to memory. Aina... M. Ursa... Kidemonas... What an odd bunch. If I'm not mistaken those two fellows are S-ranked. And it seemed her memory would serve correctly as the Mr. M. Ursa announced the details of the S-ranked quest. Rin wasn't particularly surprised given the caliber of the two mages present and she was thankful that they were willing to let her tag along despite their higher rank.

Aina however seemed to take this news as quite a shock as the pink girl shrunk behind the cover of a book. Shortly after that she released a spew of words that easily exceeded a mile a minute followed by a surprisingly hasty bow and exit. She gave a surprised blink at the girl and walked over to the door after her, peeking down the hallway in the direction she went. A slight frown played across her lips as she watched her disappear. For a moment she considered following the girl but she decided it would be best to just let her be for now, she had a feeling that Aina would be back in the library again soon. So with a shrug and a small sigh she stepped back into the library and once more behind her desk.

She picked up the book she had been reading and leaned back in her seat, mulling the preparations she might need to make in her head. A few good books, some changes of clothing and some basic supplies, nothing special, Rin liked to travel light. With a deep breath she stretched in her seat, excited and a bit nervous at the prospect of the job she had just signed up for. She eyed the other two men in the library before cracking open the book in her hands and beginning to read once more.

M. felt a prodding sensation at his leg. Looking down, he saw Minor nudging his leg trying to get his attention. Smiling softly, he bent to pick Minor up.

"I thank you again for giving your aid. I truly appreciate it." He stood up and tilted his head to kidemonas. "Now i'm off to prepare. I bid thee farewell."

He walked to his corner of the library. He took of his cloak and laid down on the hammock. He closed his eyes and rested till the guild Master summons him.

Everyone was dispersing, and Kidemonas figured it was as good a time as any to take his leave as well. He picked up the books he'd grabbed, and put them back where he'd found them, then left the library. He walked for a bit until he found the stairs up to the roof. He took them one at a time, and came out to the roof, overlooking the nearby town of Magnolia.

Then, he sat down, drew his sword and scabbard across his lap, closed his eyes, and drifted away.

It was times like this that he truly appreciated. The peaceful almost-quiet that nature provided, with the only sounds being the wind and the birds and the sounds drifting in from Magnolia. It got rid of most of the distractions around him, and gave him the opportunity to be alone with his thoughts.

He treasured the opportunity while he could. Sooner or later, someone would come up those stairs. Whether or not they knew he was up here depended on whether or not they were looking for him. If he was unlucky enough, it would be the Artist coming to tease him, though she typically didn't try to seek Kidemonas out in order to tease him. What was the phrase she liked to use? "Target of opportunity?" No, it would either be someone else trying to escape the ceaseless noise of the Guild Hall, or someone coming to get him for the mission he'd accepted.

"Whew... Let's see... Magically compressed tent and sleeping bags, a week's worth of emergency rations, train tickets for four all the way to Oak Town, and four new books to read along the way!" Aina smiled, finishing her check through of the rather large shopping bag sitting next to her on the bench. However, her grin swiftly diminished as her eyes fell on the much smaller - not to mention empty - money pouch dangling from her belt. "Totally broke this month again... If I can't manage this job, I'm done for," She sighed. If she hadn't splurged and bought so much reading material, she'd probably at least have enough Jewels left for lunch. As it was, it looked like she'd be going hungry again.

Still, at least preparations were completed. It had taken her almost two hours searching out everything they'd need. It was lucky for her that with the expenses of the average Fairy Tail guild member, the stores in Magnolia could afford to price questing supplies cheaply to be competitive and still make a killing on quantity. Otherwise, with her meager budget, she'd never have been able to afford the necessities of the mission. Now, however, the question remained... how exactly was she going to contact the others and tell them she'd finished preparing? Come to think of it, she'd kind of run out of the room before they could coordinate a meeting place... Flushing slightly with embarrassment, she fidgeted slightly with her hat, wondering what she'd do, when the answer suddenly came to her. Breathing a sigh of relief, she reached into one of her many pockets and withdrew a small pen, as well as her magical tome. Tearing out three pages and writing a quick note on each, she folded them up one by one into small paper airplanes. Smiling at her handiwork - she was remarkably good at paper-folding - she gave a final command to each before tossing them into the air.

"The page these runes are inscribed upon will find.. umm... M. Ursa, then return with whatever response he may have." She spoke, trying to recall the names of her group members. "The page these runes are inscribed upon will find Rin, then return with whatever response she might have. And... the page these runes are inscribed upon will find Kidemonas Agios, then return with whatever response he may have." Throwing the last paper airplane, she grinned proudly as the three makeshift messengers scattered into the air, nimbly dancing away upon the midsummer breeze, all generally veering as though with a will of their own towards the Fairy Tail guild hall. Soon enough, they'd reach their targets, and deliver her simple message.

I've finished gathering supplies for the trip. I got us a tent, sleeping bags, and rations, and also took the liberty of reserving us tickets on a train bound for Oak Town, since that should get us halfway to the Dagger's Tip peninsula. I hope that's alright with everyone. In any case, the train leaves in two and a half hours, so I guess I'll see you all at the station. If there are any problems, or there's something you need me to know, just write it on the blank side of this paper airplane, then re-fold it and let it find its way back to me. Thank you! - A. Scheherazade

Surprisingly enough, Rin had managed to find her way to her room before falling asleep, she had spent the last few nights simply sleeping in the library and it was beginning to become a bit unbearable on her back. As she laid sprawled out on her bed in perhaps the most ungraceful pose imaginable the morning sun's rosy fingers began to creep in through the windows, causing Rin to stir slightly. After a few moments spent trying to resist the call of consciousness and the light that began to invade her vision Rin slowly sat up in her bed and with a big yawn stretched her arms up into the air. She reached over to grab her signature red glasses from their case on her bedside table and placed them gently on to her face as she stared out the window.

It was a beautiful morning. The sky was clear and blue and bright, and even from inside her room Rin could hear the birds outside singing their pretty little songs. Rin gave a contented sigh as she sat in comfort atop her bed, gazing out on the wonderfu- *TAP* Rin let out a shriek as something ran headlong into her window, causing the girl to topple back over on her bed in surprise, nearly slipping off the edge and on to the wood floor. With her heart racing Rin quickly sat up and looked back at the window, "A-A... Bird?" Ever so slowly and cautiously Rin leaned in towards the window and sure enough the small white creature popped up into view again and began to tap at the window once more.

Rin adjusted her glasses as she inspected the thing from behind the pane of glass and realized it was a folded paper plane. Feeling a bit silly at how startled she had been by the harmless paper creature she reached over and opened up her window, allowing the message to finally reach its destination as it slowly floated down on top of her bed. Gently, she unfolded the paper unable to shake the slightly sad feeling and thought that this piece of paper was so animated and full of life just a moment ago. As her eyes scanned the contents of the note quickly, they lit up and a smile quickly formed on her lips.

It had been nearly a week and a half since Rin had been to town so it was nice to see it again. Seeing all the people bustling about with their work so early in the day was pleasant and Rin couldn't help but smile at the children who ran by playing. She had plenty of time to get to the station but Rin wanted to get there early, after all she hadn't eaten breakfast yet and it didn't seem far fetched that the others might not have either. So, on her way there she had stopped by a bakery and picked up a small box of assorted donuts and a bag that held four apples as she felt a bit bad about the idea of just eating donuts for breakfast.

Finally, she arrived at the train station and once inside it didn't take long to pick the pink Aina out from the crowd. With a smile she approached the girl, "Good morning Aina." She held the bag and box up into view, "I hadn't eaten breakfast yet so I figured I'd bring some food for all of us to share... I hoped anyway. If everyone's already eaten I don't think I'll be able to finish all this off by myself, heh." She gave a sort of nervous laugh and smile as she held the box of donuts up and in Aina's direction, "Take whichever you want. And oh! Thank you for going through the trouble of preparing all of this for us, you didn't need to do that but I really do appreciate it, I'm sure the others do too." With a nod and a warm smile in the girl's direction she added, "I also snuck a few extra books out of the library in case we run out of stuff to read on the road."

Kidemonas woke up when he felt something tap the side of his head. He was up from where he had been sitting in an instant, sword in hand. What was going on? Were they under attack?

Then he realized that, one, he was still on the roof of the Guild Hall; two, he'd fallen asleep up here and was stiff from sleeping slumped over his legs; and three, the thing that had tapped his head was a paper airplane. He picked it up and read the note. He smiled. She was definitely helpful to have around. Stretching his body out a bit, Kidemonas started walking. The train left in two and a half hours, the note had said. Kidemonas needed to pack.

He walked down Magnolia's main street, backpack hanging from his shoulders, looking for something to eat. Finding a small street-side stand that was selling fresh fruit, Kidemonas bought a pair of apples, and kept walking down the street.

He looked around as he made his way towards the station. It had been a while since he'd last been in Magnolia, and he took the opportunity to look around and take it all in. It was nice to see children playing in the streets so freely.

He made his way to the station in good time. Upon arrival, a quick scan of the area let him spot where Aina and Rin were standing. He walked over to them, smiling. "Good morning, you two. Ready for the day?"

M. must have fallen asleep,as he woke up to Minor nudging his face with a slightly crumpled paper plane in her mouth. He rolled over so he was laying on his stomach and read the note. He smiled and felt grateful for Aina's preparation. Although that would mean that they have indirectly depleted her supply of jewels. His face fell with this realization.

He rolled off and began packing some things he would need. packed some books, his sword and a gourd of liquid. He ruffled his hair, and with Minor on his heels, he walked briskly towards the train station.

He arrived right when Kidemonas was conversing with Aina and Rin. He strolled up to them.

"Hello everyone, glad to see everyone ready and refreshed. Although i'm a tad concerned for this early departure as the Master has asked for our presence later," he looked over Kidemonas with a concerned look. "Yet he hasn't arrived yet, I suppose it's too late to reconsider." he finished with a smile.

Aina glanced up, hearing a voice calling her name. It looked like Rin was the first one to show up, as the bespectacled bookworm swiftly approached, holding a bag of breakfast treats. Aina gazed forlornly at the sack containing what her nose quickly helped her determine was delicious donuts - perhaps the greatest breakfast pastry known to man! But those were not for her. Those were Rin's donuts, and even if the young magus was deeply envious of her compatriot's marvelous selection of delectable delights, she would restrain herself.

Until, that is, the librarian said she'd gotten plenty for everyone, and and proffered the box. Aina didn't need to think twice.

"Really?" She asked, a joyous smile breaking out across her face. "In that case, thank you very much!" Wasting no time, she hastily reached into the box and laid hold of the most brightly colored, sickeningly-sweet-looking pastry of the entire selection, and raising it to her face with the same reverence as a woman in prayer, gobbled it down without delay, grinning like a child in a candy shop the whole while. In a few quick bites, the entire pastry vanished completely, the only evidence it had ever existed the uncharacteristically chipper smile on the otherwise melancholy, quiet girl's face.

"Eh?" She asked, snapping back to reality from her treat-induced reverie as Rin began to thank her rather profusely for her efforts. Granted, she had spent pretty much all of her savings, meager though they were, gathering supplies for this mission, but still, it was the least she could do considering how much of a burden her presence would inevitably be on such an advanced quest. "It's no problem at all," She said quickly, her grin slowly fading as her usual timid demeanor began to slip back into plain sight. "It was the least I could do for you all, since you let me come along and all..." She trailed off. Nobody had ever actually approached her before and asked her to join them. How rude would she have been had she not done them this basic courtesy in exchange for their generous offer?

Fortunately, before Rin could question her logic, the other two swiftly arrived in quick succession. Aina rose, bowing to greet them, this time remembering to hold her cap as she did so, and nodding slightly to herself once she had raised her head, seeming proud that she'd remembered. "G-Good morning Mr. Kidemonas, Mr. Ursa!" She greeted in a tone as close to enthusiastic welcome as a quiet girl such as herself could manage. However, this nervous welcome soon faded, replaced by bashful guilt as M. mentioned that he had a meeting with the guild master he was missing because of her arrangements.

"Oh no..." She murmured, gazing at the ground in shame. "I'm so sorry! I should have checked before I bought the tickets. I was trying to save money and they were on sale and I didn't want to bother you and I ended up being inexcusably selfish!" Bowing again, she narrowly managed to catch her hat before it fell once again to the ground, and ended up partially hiding her face behind it as though that would somehow protest her from the guilt she was feeling. Yet again, she'd tried to be of use, and as usual, she'd just ended up causing trouble for somebody. It was a sad testament to her poor abilities at coordination and cooperation that she was actually getting used to this crestfallen feeling.

"There is no need to worry." His voice has a warm aura around it that gives you a comforting feeling. "You did not know and it was my fault for not informing you. There is no use in blaming everyone now, and you truly are an asset in this mission. I thank thee again for your kindness in buying the ticket and supplies." He felt bad that he, once again, caused Aina worry and made her look down upon herself. Maybe he should go back to talking less.

He hoped that she would soon see that she's indeed a great help. M. turned to the others with a cordial smile.

"Greetings Rin and Kidemonas, it's great to see that you're both ready to go. This might take a while so bringing some food really is a good idea. I hope there isn't much of a hassle to finish the quest."
