Description

Image

One moment, please. Let me finish this page, and I'll be right with you





Image





Full Name
"My name is Nikolai. Just Nikolai. And it's a pleasure to meet you."


Age
"I am twenty nine years of age, though I don't see what difference that makes"


Role
"I am an Editor at the company - it is my job to ensure that all of our publications are of a high quality"


Manga
"Currently I am between works"





Image

Personality
Nikolai is very calm, quiet, and reserved. He is direct and to the point, and doesn't believe at all in saying things to spare other people's feelings when it comes to work. In his opinion, feelings should not come into play when at work, and though he can come across as brutal and unkind, Nikolai never outwardly attempts to hurt others. He is incredibly professional while working, however he is completely different outside of work. At home, or when socializing, Nikolai is an easy going and relaxed companion, willing to smoke and drink with his friends. He is charming, charismatic and smooth, and although he might not come across as overly sexual, Nikolai does have his moments, and they tend to be unpredictable and unavoidable, particularly when he meets someone that he is especially interested in.











Family
"Mother and father had several children, myself included. I have three sisters and two brothers. I don't see them as often as I would like to, however every six months we all meet up. It's nice. My sister brings her children along. We all stay with our parents for a week, and it's always lovely. I'd appreciate it if there were no more personal questions, though."





Likes
"Quiet time. Having my own space. Reading. I like my life to be quiet, and I like to have my friends close. Things should be simple, and not complicated."


Dislikes
"Loud, abrupt noises. I dislike people criticizing my work, though I try to understand why they're saying those things."

So begins...

Naoi Akisora


Naoi sat outside his home, letting the fresh air keep his ponytail float just above his shoulder. It's so peaceful. Why can't we just stop time here and now and capture this tranquility. Naoi closed his eyes and took a deep breath, standing up. Naoi was sure his deadline was going to just float behind him and poke him in the shoulder- suprising him. He didn't want Ciel to yell at him, though he never really raised his voice.

Exhaling, and letting the breath out he slid open the door to his traditional japanese house. He trodded down the hallway, into his 'library' or atleast thats what he nicknamed his favroite room. It was the one room in his house that wasn't always spotless. He slid open the door and gave a soft smile at the disarray, he'd been working so hard on a new character to introduce he'd ended up wit paper everywhere and the sketchbooks that were usually nice and lined up on the book shelves thrown out along with a few anatomy books.

"Well, I'll just clean up the room.." Naoi picked up a few sketch books and shelved them back in order, they were all in place by date, "And then I'll start..." . Naoi went to work peacefully cleaning up the mess and organizing it. After he was done he sat down on a swivel chair infront of his desk. This new character... she's no good. I'll try again, maybe she should have longer hair... Naoi started drawing in his most recently aquired sketch book, trying to figure out what the new antagonist for 'love prism' was going to look like.

Luka Crosszeria


Luka sat down at his desk, facing the wrong way in his swivel chair and typing at his laptop. He'd noticed lately that for some reason their companies manga-ka's just had something against turning in anything on time. In fact Luka was sure they were doing it on purpose just so editors like him had to yell at the printers and tell them to move back the printing date.

He'd finished drafting up something to sell Yuuto's manga better, a book signing where everybody could dress up as their favroite character. He was sure Yuuto's loyal fans would eat it up and it might draw in newbies to Yuuto's work. He sighed and stetched, picking up his cell so he could call his manga-ka and schedule it. Of course he had to take the thing through the finances department and whatnot but he was sure they'd go along.

"But I'm done. That's what counts." Luka stretched out, talking to himself.

He picked up the cell and dialed the guy's number, The real question is if he's actually going to finish in time. Actually that's not even a question. Knowing him he's probably daydreaming about something outrageous or flirting. I'd be shocked If he was actually getting his work done

Image "Hey...You and me, alright. Stop thinking about pointless things."

Felix nodded. He was right, as usual. There was no point worrying over the past. It was over and now they had a pretty good present. The smell of breakfast reminded him of his hunger and, with all negative thoughts forgotten, Felix eagerly reached forward for some of the bacon, which he then slid between two slices of bread. Content with his breakfast, he ate his makeshift sandwich thoughtfully. If Hoshi was coming over, then Felix really didn't want to be stuck in a room with them both. Hoshi made him uncomfortable, and he knew that his brother would be too busy with him to pay him any mind. So maybe he would go to his room and do some art. Or maybe he'd go for a walk.

"I been thinking and I should say this before Hoshi comes. Hmm...I want to move. The place I been looking at is bigger than this small dump. You might like it, it's cozy. But I won't go if you don't want to. We could stay here if you like it here."

Felix looked up, surprised as Cael talked about moving, and in all honesty Felix wasn't sure what he thought of the idea. He knew what he meant about the place they were in being small, but Felix didn't think that was so bad. What if they moved to a slightly bigger place and it was so big you could feel like you lived on your own? Felix did not like the thought of that at all, and neither did he like the thought of having to dismantle his room. Everything there was arranged just as he liked - his desk, his bed, the various posters on the walls and ceiling...It would take forever to recreate that. Felix paused in the process of eating his sandwich to pull off the crusts on the bread, placing them aside.

"I...I don't know," He said hesitantly, biting his lip, "Can I see it first? It sounds...great, but I like it here..."

It was then that they both heard the rap on the door, and Felix sighed, before looking up at his brother and quickly finishing his breakfast. "I was thinking, as well...Could we invite Kori over? It'd be nice to see him," Felix said this brightly, warming up to the thought of his friend. Him and Kori were so similar that he was one of the few people that Felix trusted for real. He pulled his shirt on, and grinned at Cael.

"And that'll be Hoshi. Have fun"

Nikolai hadn't slept at all the previous night. In fact, he'd even taken a break to have a cup of tea and watch the sun rise, but for almost twelve hours, he had sat at his desk. He had been flicking through the pages that Sasaki had given him so far, absorbed by his work. First, he had gone through A Love Hidden By Lies. It was his least favorite of the two mangas, and at parts he found it slow and tedious though that was only his opinion on it. When Nikolai looked at it objectively, the manga was well written and pretty good. Nevertheless, Nikolai had gone through each page carefully, studying it and making notes on the few things that might need to be changed. And then he did the same for One of a Kind. He much preferred this one, and it was a joy to read, though that only made Nikolai go through the pages a lot more thoroughly.

The sun had risen by the time Nikolai finished with the two mangas, and he was tired, though it was time well spent. Ink covered the tips of his fingers as he raked them through his purple hair. He still wasn't finished, despite the early hour. He had yet to reply to the letters he had received from his family, but he looked forward to that. It was always nice to send them something short to let them know things were well. And things really were well. Nikolai was enjoying life at the moment, even if he was a little lonely. But that was all okay. He was normally too busy to meet with people at the moment anyway.

His steps were almost silent as he made his way over to the bathroom, where he would start the day with a shower before he had something to eat. The steam rolled lethargically across the mirror as he turned the water on, making sure it ran hot. His clothing came free next, and then he stepped under the stream of water. Nikolai felt himself instantly relaxing, exhaling the stress he hadn't realized he had been carrying slowly. It felt good to be able to clean himself after a busy night like the last, and it gave him an opportunity to think of the things he had to do with his day.

Nikolai probably spent longer in the shower than he intended, but it didn't matter too much. For a long while, he enjoyed the feel of the steaming hot water on his tired skin, letting it soak his dark purple hair. It felt so good to relax, and gradually his thoughts turned to the day ahead of him. He was slightly tired, but the invigorating shower had refreshed him, and he began to look forward to spending the day ahead enjoying himself. Nikolai stepped out of the shower, and wrapped a towel around himself before making his way to his bedroom to get shrug some clothes on.

He went through the menial actions of dressing himself and getting ready to go out without thinking about it. A plan for his day slowly formed in his mind. First, he'd finish dressing, and then he would go out for something to eat, or maybe just get a coffee. And then, he would call up Sasaki and tell him about the progress he'd made. Nikolai knew Sasaki would appreciate that. After he'd spoken to him, he'd come home and finish those letters to his family, before spending the evening with a pleasant book. It didn't really sound like a lot, but it was already mid morning and he had no intention of doing anything quickly.

By the time Nikolai had decided what he'd do that day, he was completely dressed, and his hair had dried. He paused, just before leaving, to regard himself in the mirror. He was dressed simply in smart black jeans and a clean white shirt. The top few buttons were undone, parting to reveal the top of his smooth chest. His hair was tied back, keeping it out of his emerald eyes, though a few strands escaped and hung across his brow. It was a casual look, but it was a look that worked for him. Before he left his home, he stopped once more by his desk to pick up his copies of the mangas as they were with his edits, his glasses, which he put in his pocket, and his phone.

Carrying his work in a briefcase, and slipping on a dark jacket, he left his house, leaving it unlocked as usual. Nikolai lived in a safe area, and he highly doubted anyone would sneak in. And even if they did, he had all of his valuable belongings on him. He lived simply, and so owned little of material value. He strolled down the road thoughtfully, his eyes wandering the street thoughtfully. A day this pleasant normally made him sleepy, but he had a purpose, and he knew rest would evade him until he had at least spoken to Sasaki.

The little shop he frequented often was busy when he arrived and ordered a coffee. Taking it to a table, he sat in a quiet corner, and took a sip as he pulled his phone from his pocket. He idly checked for messages before flicking over to his contacts, and searching for Sasaki. He rang him and waited patiently for him to answer so that he could arrange to meet.
