05❣❣ the life of magi

VIDEO;
Is there anyone here who doesn't feel up to celebrating the holiday?

[ Her voice is soft, almost distant. Rin's never really had the opportunity to celebrate a holiday with loved ones. The memories she recalled recently told her that even as a child, she hardly spent any time at all with her family during the holidays. A younger girl often brought her stuff from the party as she hid away in a room upstairs to study. Was this the life of someone who used magic? Was this not a gift she was born with and instead one she had to work hard to achieve? ]

It's peculiar to think of celebrating when our family and friends aren't here. For example, a common theme in Christmas is to give gifts to those you are close to. How many of you have thought of gifts to give to people here? I find it a challenge to come up with ideas for gifts of people I hardly know. What if someone is allergic to this or they dislike that? Geez, it's too complicated!!

ACTION;

[ In the later parts of the evening, one Rin Tohsaka can be found outside in the cold practicing on a few trees. She'll lift her head to ensure she's alone before murmuring under her breath. A German incantation of sorts, but it has a different reaction through the body of this girl. Orbs of blue light form with the palm of her hand and when the chill gets to be too much for her, she'll throw them straight at the tree. Once they strike at it, the orbs explode into ice that creeps and grows along the entire trunk of the tree, leaving it encased fully. ]

Not bad, not bad at all.. [ A simple action still took a lot out of her, so she'll plop on her knees to catch her breath. Even though it was painful to do in the already frigid air. ] Just a bit more practice and I'll have this mastered.

OOC: As always, anemoi/memories are tracked here for Rin. 1% spent on childhood memories of studying, 2% spent on learning this ability.

[The crunch of some remaining dead leaves underfoot gave away the presence of company. Shirou was there, his hand resting on the wall of a nearby building.]

Ah, I found you. You remembered more magic, too, huh?

[identity profile] wontdieifkilled.livejournal.com 2011-12-12 06:15 am (UTC)(link)
...Oh, yeah. I remembered it last night.

Well, sort of. I just remembered a pair of swords I could project and use. It wasn't a new type of magic, but it was another way to use what I remembered.

I'm willing to admit it doesn't feel like much of a holiday when you're in a strange place with people you barely know, yes.

I... suppose I could say "friends" in the sense that any group of people surviving a near-death experience could call friends. My roommate is... marginally more tolerable now, at any rate.

Perhaps making it a blanket statement mitigates it somewhat, but I would consider it rude to complain about how difficult it is to think of gifts for someone.

Make it something homemade. The feelings and work that go into creating something can make any gift worthwhile.

I'm getting gifts for a few people. Really, with the amnesia, don't we know each other about as well as we know ourselves?

Makes sense, right? Besides, isn't the gesture supposed to count more than what the gift actually is?

[ From somewhere behind her, Saleh claps, having walked into the performance halfway in. ]

Not bad at all, indeed. Though I can't say the same for the tree.

Spy? You're the one who decided to use your Force in public, if it can be called that.

I don't know, I think just getting anything from anybody is really nice! It doesn't have to be as complicated as that.
healeveryone: Smiling; among the flowers. (to heal everyone)

Well, why not? A gift is a gift. Someone still went to the trouble of giving it to you. Don't you think just getting something is nice?

What's a Christmas?

Nope.

What kind of holiday? Is there candy?
