[x] More danmaku? You’d rather think and practice than have a real match, though.
“I want to get better, though,” You say, “So I don’t want to play right away. It’s hard to think when playing.”
Rumia looks a little disappointed. “Later?”
You nod, causing her to smile. “Ok,” She says, getting up and heading out into the rain. Though, before she leaves completely, she turns around. “Anyone else~?”
Both Wriggle and Mystia shake their heads, after which Rumia leaves. You wonder where she’s going? Somewhere fun, you bet. But right now, you want to think. Think about what you do. Maybe first, you should look at what you have. You’ve never seen it full before. Just let it out, and start---
“Hey,” Wriggle says, laughing a little. “You’ll break something if you do that under here.”
Mystia nods. “Not to kick you out, but…”
You understand. If something like a building gets broke, it’ll be hard to fix, so you head out into the rain too. Up into the air, where you were before. The water isn’t as thick anymore, and the wind not as strong, so it’s easier to get up. You start your danmaku.
…letting it go like this, it’s really cool to watch. When you can see it all, it’s really good. Perfect. But…
You think back. Not all humans get scrambled the same, do they? Some get angry, like that boy or that man or that one guy with the bow. Some get really scared, like the woman. Some even start laughing, like that other guy. Maybe that’s what they mean? It’s the same thing, but if you look really hard, it looks different on different humans.
Right as you think this, the rain starts to get even weaker. You let your danmaku stop, too. That’s just scrambled. So, scrambled with yelling? Scrambled with “ahhhh I’m going to kill you a thousand times over’? What would that be? You try it, thinking about it like you do normally.
… and it works. It’s not as good as your other one, you don’t think, but it works. Angry red danmaku zips around, darting and doing crazy things. It’s exciting to watch, but… it’s a little weak. It’s hard to see the whole thing. You’ve only seen a few humans like that, so you don’t get it really well. You don’t get this danmaku really well, either. But, it’s there, like you had hoped.
You let that turn off, too. Scared? You try that. Same thing, but even weaker than angry. It looks different, but again, you don’t really get it. So it doesn’t work well. Same with laughing. They’re there, but you don’t think they’d be good to play danmaku with. Too easy, and you have to think too hard to make them. Maybe if you saw more humans like that…
… well, there’s a bunch of them coming tomorrow, right? A lot of them but… maybe if Wriggle and Mystia and Rumia helped you, you could do it. Play with them, see them scared or angry or start laughing. That’s not killing, so it’s fine. Right? You don’t need to kill them to see that. And when you learned how to danmaku before, it was because of playing with humans. So, maybe…
The water is almost not here anymore, you realize. It took a long time to think of that, and imagine it, and play around with it. There’s a really good smell in the air, and the wind is going away. And, you think that maybe, in a little part of the sky, you see the moon. Almost round. It should be round tomorrow, with how much it grows.
[ ] Go ask Wriggle and Mystia, about their help. Rumia, too.
[ ] Try to find Rumia. It’s later, and even if they are weak, you want to try them.
[ ] Do something else (write-in).
[ ] Take a nap. Day is better than night.
