First topic message reminder :

~Welcome to the Summer Matsuri.~


Welcome to the festival aka matsuri held in celebration of the start of summer.Forget about work and all your troubles,enjoy a variety of games and foods.The festival is setup with many booths offering food,entertainment and games lining the walkways leading to the main temple.Lanterns are hanging everywhere and come evening will fill the area with soft light,creating a beautiful sight.To the right,a little further from the temple runs a medium sized,quiet river.To the left a stage for performers is set up.Planned entertainment includes a taiko drum and a shamisen performances,a dance where everyone may take part,as well as a kabuki play.There will also be a band performing.Deep in the evening a fireworks display will take place over the river.As a pleasant surprise the sakura trees surrounding the area have bloomed late and the sigh of their soft pink flowers will make this event even more special.Don't forget to walk up the temple steps and pray,ringing the small bell.You might also want to visit the small bamboo grove behind the temple.Many people write their wishes on long, narrow strips of colored paper and hang them on bamboo branches.There are many fun things to do such as buying masks,enjoying the food and everyone is always looking forward to fireworks.Unwind,relax and have fun.^^
~Games~
The games include:

~The food.~
Some of the foods sold include:

Rules:This festival is open to everyone be they Shinigami or Arrancar.There will be no fighting or disruptive behavior.You can choose for your character to be as is or use a gigai in which case they'll look as their human self.
Note:We start at a point two hours before the festival begins.That way those that want can have their characters help prepare for the festival.

"There, there, fits perfectly. now to the bench."

Shiro lights off some more fireworks, this time sending a blue rocket into the air, it explodes into a green and red lotus shape. as the image fades more smaller lotus rockets explode into the air sending many star shapes spiraling into all different directions. "heh! I think that'll be enough for now." he looks around noticing that all the fireworks for the opening had been lit off, he heads off to look for Altria.

Walking down one of the booth lined walkways she takes in all the festival sights.Deciding to use a gigai her appearance has changed only slightly:the Hollow hole and her ram like horns are now gone,as are the triangular markings under her eyes.The faint scar going through the right eye is also gone and her hair is now a little shorter..Stopping to admire the fireworks she marvels at how well they are executed.'My, masterfully done,haven't seen such display in a while.' She always enjoyed attending human celebrations,festivals where some of her favorite.Having spend some time picking out appropriate attire she at last decided on a long sleeved black kimono dress adorned with red and pink patterns,spending a while to modify it.Completing the look is a simple red flower tucked above the left ear.Watching kids trying to catch a goldfish in a fish catching game she smiles,continuing on her way towards the temple.

~OOC:What Akkei looks like for the festival.

Looking up when more fire works go off she watches with a smile until the last star fades away.'Someone's enjoying himself.' Brushing off the petals from the sakura tree that have collected in her lap she watches the crowd gathered at the masks booth with interest.'They sure seem popular,what was is that niisan said that time?Something about a tradition..ah!Each animal represented a certain quality and people would buy the one they admired or wanted to grow..yes,that was it.Hmm..' Getting an idea she gets up and heads for the booth,taking a place at the end of the small line.Browsing through all the masks she smiles at a certain one.'Heh,it fits perfectly.' When it's her turn she pays for her selection and hiding it away returns to the bench,taking a seat and waiting for everyone to arrive.

(shin is wearing this yukata..)
Spoiler:
 

arriving next at the destination, shin holds some food in two plastic bags, 3 box set in each bag and some water.

"Yo! Altria. I brought some food, you know, just in case we all wants to hang out here for a while before going all around the festival. I realiized that some of us haven't taken some break yet from helping in the preparation."

shin place the plastic bags on the bench.

"By the way, you look cute on what you're wearing..Altria~chan"

(note: the ~chan comment is just a side comment from shin)

Smiling cheerily she scoots to the other end of the bench to make space."Ah,thank you Shin-kun,"she tilts her head a little,"Hmm,you look great in a yukata,fitting." Glancing at the bags with food she remembers her only meal today consisted of a muffin and some tea in the wee hours of the morning.A grumble from her stomach confirms this.Sweatdropping she turns pink,laughing. "Er..sorry,I've only gotten a bite early in the morning before rushing here.It's so great that you thought of this,something like a small picnic will be great."

leaning on the bench, shin remembers something awesome the he saw

"No probs..and thanks. By the way, did you see those fireworks?? It was so cool. Who knows who did that? Kudos to him"


(note: because shin wasn't really around with everyone earlier and haven't actually cross with shiro, he doesn't know who did the fireworks)

"Heh,they were pretty amazing.With the amount I've seen in the shed there'll be a lot more later in the evening,closer to the end of the festival." Quirking an eyebrow she brushes a lock of hair from her eyes."I see,you don't know?The one behind the fireworks for the festival..it's Shiro.He got asked to help and took on fireworks display,seemed really happy about it too.I guess fireworks are really his thing."

Reaching their appointed location Loki is gratified to see he's not the last one to arrive for a change."Heey,Altria-chan and Shin-san.Did you see those fireworks just now?That dragon one was sweet.Shiro's really good." Receiving a better look at everyone's chosen appearance he's surprised by how different everyone looks."Man,Altria-chan,you look amazing!" Grinning Loki flops down on the bench near her.Looking at the plastic bags curiously and the smell of food coming from them."What's this??Food?"

Shiro appears behind Altria and leans on her shoulders. "Heeeeeeey! what'd I miss?" He smiles at Altria with a sunny look. "oh Hi everyone!"

Mikiru was wandering around and accidentally bumps into Akkei unintentionally. "oof.. huh? O-Oh!! I-I'm s-sorry miss..." He looks closer realizing he'd just bumped into Akkei. "Ah! M-miss Akkei-chan!! Sorry! my deepest apologies!" he looks embarrassed and turns a bit red.

Having been absorbed in her own reminiscing inner thoughts she's startled out of them when someone bumps into her,reflexively taking hold of that persons upper arm to keep balance."It is quite alright,really." Recognizing the offender as Mikiru her neutral expression changes into a smile."Mikiru-kun,this is a pleasant surprise.I did not expect to meet you here." Seeing him turn slightly red in a rather sightly fashion Akkei resist uttering her next words,instead distracting herself with tugging one slipped sleeve back into its place.'Just because it would be cute to see is no reason the make him turn more red.Hmhmm,but I haven't seen that particular look on him in some time.'

Blushing she smiles at Loki,"Thank you." Glancing at the bags she sighs,hoping Shiro will show soon."Yeah,Shin had the foresight to bring food.We can have something of a small picnic before going to enjoy the festival,personally I'm kinda hungry." Jumping slightly when Shiro appears behind her she stands up,whirling around."Kami,must you always do that?Sheesh.." Shaking her head in exasperation Altria flicks away hair that has fallen into her eyes."The fireworks were lovely,especially the dragon and the phoenix..oh!" Remembering her earlier purchase she smiles secretly,pulling out three objects from the folds of her sleeves."I've got something for you guys..." Turning to Shin she places one of the festival masks in his hands,depicting a tiger,and puts one of a fox on top of Loki's head.Lastly turning back to Shiro she holds out a blue phoenix mask."Here,you can't have a summer festival without masks.Now your look is complete,Shiro-kun."

"Yo Shiro.Your fireworks were soo cool!" Curious of what it is that Altria has for them he bounces at the edge of the bench.When she places a mask on his head Loki removes it to get a good look,grinning at the depiction of the slyly smiling fox."Hey,I remember!Isn't there a tradition for this?Animals representing certain qualities?And I get the smart,inventive trickster fox.Keh,thanks a dozen Altria-chan." Smirking he puts the mask on sideways on his head,jumping up to give her a quick hug."I love foxes too,favorite animal.Domo,for thinking of it." ^^

backing up loki's statement, shin turns to shiro who just arrived

"I know right. shiro, you really did a good job on the fireworks."

after then, receiving the gift from altria, shin takes a look of his mask too..

"Wow, a tiger. This is so cool! Thanks Altria.."

Shiro smiles and laughs at Altria, "Hee hee! sorry! I couldn't resist!" He looks at the phoenix mask in amazement. "Wow... This... this is ... Wow... Thank you Altria." He smiles and hugs her. "thank you." He happily accepts the mask and puts it on, it's a perfect fit.

"You welcome guys.Just something to remember this day by." Smiling she taps Shiro's mask,"Heh,I'm glad it fits nicely." Glancing at the bags with food she's reminded of the one muffin."Hey,how about we take the food Shin brought and have a small picnic under that cherry tree,then go for festival?"

"Yes,let's!" All for it Loki picks up one of the bags,carrying it over to the indicated tree.Placing it down he settles on the grass comfortably,happy to be able to spend time relaxing with everyone.

Taking the other bag she follows after Loki,taking a seat underneath the trees pink canopy,spending a few minutes adjusting her clothes.Pulling out the bento boxes and water she places them where everyone can reach."Don't know about you guys but I'm starving."

Shiro follows Altria, and takes a seat down next to her. He moves his mask so it's sitting on top of his head. "soooooo.... is there any Dango?"

"Dango,eh,so you like it too."Smiling she shakes her head."I don't know.Shin-kun was the one who brought all the food so I have no idea what's inside.Grab one box and see." Picking up one of the six bento boxes she places it in her lap,pulling the lid open.Inside is packed a full lunch,the container divided into sections with all kinds of different foods,one of which holds different dango. Removing the wooden chopsticks from where they were taped to the lid she snaps them apart and uses to pick up one of the round dumplings,offering it to Shiro with a smile."Here you go,dango." ^^

~with Akkei~

"so..... you came for the festival?"he looks around wondering where it was Altria had said to meet. "Um.... If you want we could meet up with Loki and his friends... or we could wander around... er or something..." He looks a bit shy. "er... what would you like Akkei-chan?"

"Indeed I did.These human holidays and traditions are most fun."Tilting her head a little she looks at him interested."Loki?That blond child that has a problem with Hollows?And his friends..ah,I see." Smiling mischievously she nods,"Why yes,that sounds like all kinds of fun.Let's see if they figure it out." She hooks her arm around his,"Do lead the way,Mikiru-kun."

Mikiru relaxes and tries to remain calm as he's not used to Akkei acting like this, but he goes along with it anyway. "yes Akkei-chan." he smiles sweetly and heads in the direction of Altria and everyone else.
