Have at it lovelies!


Sixty-Eight Kings Slain

It seems another new year in Discedo is upon us. Perhaps this shall be better than the last, here is to wishing it so, and may all keep safe and well.

[The video feed turns on and Basch is clearly at the stables, not a shocker there, though he's been there a little less than usual. Helping Naja with guarding Latimir and the like, plus knightly duties to his Princess (er Queen...), but he makes sure to keep up with things. And actually, Basch has a new years surprise for Discedo! He's walking into the Chocobo pen, petting and greeting them as he goes, until he comes to one of the female Chocobos, who looks quite proud of herself.]

Felicia here has been keeping an egg warm for a little over a month now. While we have had plenty of Chocobo eggs none have hatched so far, so I had not expected anything this time either.

[Basch gives her an affectionate scratch, getting a pleased sound from the giant bird. Though she's happy, Felicia seems to be a little guarded as well, watching Basch carefully.]

It seems I was wrong. [And he kneels down, the video feed shaky as he gets down, focusing it on something yellow and curled in a ball of feathers. A little foot pops out and an eye blearily peeks out from the mess of feathered fluff. Basch can be heard chuckling off screen and his hand comes into the picture, petting the mass of feathers, before a little beak nips at his fingers and a shrill "wark!" can be heard from it. With a little more coaxing from Basch the bundle of feathers shakily stands, wobbling on skinny legs, not use to its own body yet. Flapping tiny wings, it gives out another few cries, and mommy's beak comes down to nuzzle at it.

Happy New Years, Discedo, you're all grandparents to a brand new baby Chocobo!]

I am curious to hear any ideas on names for the little one. And to any who would like to come see it in person, please be wary that the mother shall be a little hostile to those she does not know well. Tis her duty to keep her chick safe of course.

[And as if understanding Basch, Felicia gives a loud "KWEH!" in response.]

(ooc: FFFF so like... I have no idea how long it takes to hatch a Chocobo egg... I kinda just went with a month as it seems to be around the general time other birds do. And yeah, I figured we needed some adorable cuteness for New Years. Have a baby to awww at Discedo!)

... Balthier, there are not mistletoe all throughout the apartment are there?

[Was just at the stables and... he's glad he didn't get stuck under one with a Chocobo. That would have been awkward. He's almost back to Latimir and the thought had just dawned on him. It was just like last year. Well he hoped not.]

I hope they are easy to remove unlike the year prior, if so.

[Yes this is an accidental video. No it does not involve what could be construed as sexual acts. Your eyes will not suffer from this.

What is seen is the underside of a chair, and it's a little dark because of it. A hand comes into view to grab it and pick it back up. Having been dropped a moment before, thus turning it on, it's now back in Basch's lap. Or in his hand in his lap. He seems... worn, tired... worried. He's yet to realize that it's actually on, though this is attributed more because he can barely seem to keep his eyes open.

He's obviously not at Latimir, nor the stables, the familiar walls of the hospital behind him do give his location away. To any who might know it well enough. It can't be seen why he's there exactly, he doesn't seem to be hurt at all. Though if he's not careful he'll doze off in a rather uncomfortable position and be sore after.

So sadly, this is nothing interesting to watch, Discedo. Just a tired ex-knight attempting to stay wake, and most likely losing the battle.]

Tis that time again so soon?

Hm... it seems time moves quicker here than I thought.

I am curious if any others have felt any odd effects as of the past few days? I feel they could pertain to magicks... though I am not entirely certain.

[There is some moving around in the background, as he's getting ready to go out and see the Chocobos.]

Or perhaps I am an old man merely imagining things. [He chuckles, and the door can be heard opening to head out into the hallway and... FLASH! A bright light suddenly blinds Basch and he stumbles back, trying to grab the door to get his footing but misses and tumbles back onto his behind. Not a very soft landing if there ever was one.]

Nnn... mm, magicks or not, I cannot tell when I am blinded. If someone is doing such things out of amusement, do take care to remember the safety of others here.

[He sounds a little disappointed if that's the fact. Being blinded by that flashy magick, curtisy of Naja's chip removal, he's going to hold off going to feed the Chocobos, and just... have a sore backside and be blind for a little bit.]

[Basch purposely turns his communicator on to show himself on the feed, which for anyone who knows his regular outfit might notice... something is different. The good captain has gotten a little makeover. From who, he doesn't know but he suspects it's just an item rain. He does appreciate the new clothing (shirt, pants and boots) as the outfit he had before was pretty much a mishmash of whatever was around at the time. Plus with the weather getting cooler the pants will be nice.]

I do hope the lack of color pleases you, Balthier. As you seemed to find it a mess before.

[He holds up the infamous 'potholder' dangling it in front of the camera.]

And this shall no longer haunt you.

[Basch then sets it aside before sitting down on the couch, he makes a contemplative face for a moment before talking out loud to himself, more a mumble than anything.]

... perhaps I should tie my hair back with something... tis getting long after all. I should trim it.

[Oh right, video is still on. He smiles a little in the communicator before asking a question.]

Did anyone else receive things? It seems tis that time again, as it has happened a few times before.

I am curious if the doctors here would have anything to help with sleep? I would appreciate it if one did.

Tis nice that things have calmed for the most part, though... part of me fears for the worst. They say that the calm comes before the storm. That is very true in this city.

[Private | Totally Hackable... he is not a tech savvy man by any means]

They have returned once again. While it had been some months since the last nightmare, it seemed too good to be true. I can only hope that the doctors have something that could make sleep easier. I do not wish to keep anyone up with my restless sleeping.

Fifty-Seven Kings Slain

I had forgotten that a year had gone by in this city... in that time my brother has gone and come again. Now he has once again left Discedo. Hm... while I would typically say twas for the best, I cannot truly say that this time. Either way, I hope his soul can rest in peace. Better in Ivalice than in this world.

[There is an annoying burst of static and Basch waits for it to pass before speaking again.]

I suppose now would be the time to mention that Chocobo is gone as well. His frequency is no longer working.

Let us hope he fairs well back in his own world.

[He pauses like he might say something more, but decides not to. Noah leaving again, along with Chocobo, has put a damper on his day. Not that the terrible fog hasn't done that enough. So with a barely audible sigh and a crackle of static, the comm clicks off.]

Fifty-Six Kings Slain


While I am glad that nothing terrible happened concerning the explosion a few rooms over, perhaps a warning next time would be best?

Though I am concerned, as we not long ago had the ceiling of Latimir collapse... we should be careful as to what we destroy inside this building, lest it fall upon our heads again.
