Welcome to my Bio, random person. Yeah, my name is pretty redundant (Polaris - North Star, North... well north.)

Things you need to know about me?

I live in the Philippines. I'm a student and life gets a bit hectic so please understand if I suddenly become more sporadic when it comes to replies.

I'm involved in a lot of fandoms (mostly anime) and as long as it gets my interest, I'll join. My range is from free to casual [or well, as long as I can get it from the post I'm replying to]. I'm more of a fantasy kid than a slice of life but I think I can join something like that. I'm not much of a romance writer so I keep myself to PG-13 and not exceed anything else.

Hey, I was wondering if you're still accepting?

I was planning on maybe going for someone who has severe insomnia and suffers from extremely distressing nightmares, often indescribable as they would call it. They'd likely suffer from sleep deprivation and would be constantly bordering paranoid and jumpy. Went to the institution to have their insomnia or at least the nightmares fixed.

Shrine in the Forest - ???

Hiroko had to agree with Kaito on the note of the language they had all appeared to understand. She was not someone who was well-versed in other languages aside from her own and some English that she had learned and picked up from her high school days to her working days. In any case, understanding what was written had bothered her somewhere in her mind but that wasn't exactly the main concern she had right now. One problem at a time - they could tackle that little tidbit once they were in civilization and safe from the dangers of the woods.

Kaito had soon taken the lead after Honami had struggled with the foliage. Hiroko was more than happy to cover the back. She tensed up a little bit, however, as she kept herself alert to any sound that did not come from them. The mere fact that the forest was mostly silent was something that made her suspicious and cautious, but it was not something she was going to voice. Kaito was already nervous, no need to make any more unnecessary comments from her paranoia.

She heard Kaito's comment first before seeing the shrine itself. As she passed the last of the foliage, she let out a hum of acknowledgment to the shrine. Well, it certainly was in a rather sorry state. Obviously, it hadn't been visited for a long time. The forest had already taken over the poor, abandoned shrine. That would have taken years to have that extent of taking over. Hiroko couldn't exactly remember the last time she had seen an abandoned shrine, or even if she had ever visited one. With how devoted the Japanese were with gods and goddesses, shrines weren't often abandoned but it was not unheard of a deity to be forgotten.

The shrine looked like a danger solely for its crumbling structure.

Nevertheless, as Honami proceeded forward, Hiroko followed close behind. Better to have someone to pull the girl back before something bad happens. She peeked into the room first as the other girl proceeded inside. And, as expected, no one was inside and Honami said as much. "Let's hope for that." She mumbled as she entered. Deities weren't really a big thing to Hiroko considering what happened in her life, but it didn't hurt to follow superstitions. Her nose wrinkled at the hole the roof had as well as the fact that some animals may have already claimed this as their home - the spiders certainly did.

"We could stay for a while. But I'm not sure it'll weather a storm." She felt the need to point that out as she inspected the structure more. "We should probably rest before looking for another path to a town. Even if this shrine is abandoned, surely there's a town nearby."

Forest - ???
Hiroko hummed to acknowledge the fact that even Kaito seemed to agree on getting to some form of shelter to get their bearings. Once more, it would be highly unlikely that they were somewhere too far so they can see a place of civilization from a high vantage point like the shrine. Of course, even this plan wasn't perfect and she would be lost if none of them can recognize where they are. She dug her hands further inside her pocket and looked over at Honami as she snapped at Kaito.

"He's nervous." She pointed out as she placed a placating hand on Honami before sending an apologetic smile. "The faster we get to shelter, the faster we can calm down." With that, she let her hand back fall from Honami's shoulder and returned her hand inside her pockets. Hiroko did understand why Honami seemed to be irritable considering Kaito seemed to be older than them and was male and yet he seemed to be the most cautious and the jumpiest. But she wasn't going to blame him for that.

"Yeah." She absentmindedly agreed as she followed the high schooler as she continued her trek forward. However, Hiroko kept her eye out for anything that might be out of place. She kept close to Honami but made sure that Kaito didn't lag behind too much or that would be disastrous. They would need to stick with each other for now. There were merits to being in a group after all. Now... hopefully they reached the shrine soon and hopefully it was still intact.
I mean, sure, I'm here. Ey

Dorm Floor
Interacting with:Julius

Once Alex was taken to his bed, Lilly had retired to her room. She wasn't sure she could properly think after what had happened and she didn't want to drink anything away. She would have just given up halfway anyway. There was no way a couple of drinks could make her less stressed or make her forget the events. So there she was, collapsed on top of her bed after making the others promise to not get into any more trouble after explaining to them what had happened. Crazy shit. She didn't want to repeat any of that.

The rude awakening that came from her phone's alarm made her groan and she wanted to wrap herself back up in her blanket. But after two seconds of the incessant beeping, she got tired of it and decided to stand up to get to the phone. She sighed as she turned the alarm off. It was pretty early in the morning. It was a Sunday but Lilly didn't like waking up late. It was a waste of a day. Then again, there were no classes and last night had been too chaotic. Maybe...

No. No, she shouldn't.

With that, Lilly finally freshened herself up and got dressed for the day. Now, she only just had to get some coffee and she could start the day in proper. So she made her way to the communal kitchen. When she had entered, she noticed that Julius was sitting there. The thought of making conversation had entered her mind but she decided against it. After last night, Lilly wasn't exaclty sure if that was the brightest idea. So she simply gave him a nod of acknowledgement before heading off to make her coffee.

Maybe she should ask how Alex is doing first. Then maybe she should go up to check up on the girl from last night. Hopefully she woke up as well. Maybe Lilly could even ask her what had happened if that wasn't too much. With that in mind, she grabbed her cup of coffee before taking a sip, perching herself near the counter, thinking to herself.

Hiroyuki Duma

Hiroyuki had wandered off for quite a ways before circling back to the group. He noted that Hikaru still hadn't been healed considering she was still holding her crutch. He looked over to Yumiko who simply said that she would continue healing at a later date. He wasn't sure if he understood why she decided not to heal Hikaru but he simply shrugged it off. They could probably aid Hikaru with walking faster if they must. Yumiko might have been tired so she needed more time to recover for that. She might be rude about it but he could see some reason.

Ryuu, however, was not as calm. He had gone off - angry at the fact that she would not be healing Hikaru. Hiroyuki muttered a curse under his breath as he moved forward, expecting a fight, perhaps. However, Hikaru defused the situation by saying that she was fine and that she could handle it. She created a ball of air and began zipping around them. Hiroyuki was impressed and his face clearly showed it. "Huh, I've never seen an airbender do that before." To be fair, he hadn't seen an airbender before.

When Hikaru went off ahead of them, he gave the others a shrug before jogging up to the airbender, curious. "That's rather impressive and useful for escaping." He then paused as if choosing his words but it was merely because he wasn't exactly sure what else he could say. "Isn't doing that taxing?" He asked as he gestured to the ball of compressed air.

Other Party Floor
Interacting with: Hangyeol, Julius, Alex

Lilly shrugged. Hopefully, their instruction on how to take care of their sick would be accurate and would actually help. She was still too worried about everything - because whatever that was was not normal. But there was nothing much they can do now since they were gone. She spared the girl another look and then nodded at Julius.

"Yeah, I'll help." Lilly said. Alex was in her jurisdiction now and she had a duty to help him. Well, that and she tried to help earlier. She shouldn't have left him alone. Seoyeon had departed downstairs while they headed up. She never wanted to get into bed as much as she did right now. Now that everything was calmer, she just felt even more tired. Sluggish even. Lilly did promise for everyone to stay safe but since that was thrown out of the window, Lilly felt like she could just crash into her bed and not care for anything else until tomorrow.

As they walked, her thoughts wandered to the others. Last she saw them, they were all enjoying some pot brownies - Julius was part of that group - they might have disbanded for now. Hopefully they didn't get into any trouble. Or maybe, hopefully, they all passed out somehow and they could finally rest. Yeah, that might have been for the best. Lilly would much rather deal with schoolwork than this whole ordeal but what's done was done.

Alex was there, soaking Julius' - she assumed it was his - coat red. Lilly frowned and then knelt down beside him as Julius switched the soaked coat with the pillow he nabbed earlier. Her mind flashed back to only a few minutes earlier. The girl was just like this before. She bit her lip as Alex muttered that the medics didn't even bother going to him. "They were in a hurry to get out after all." She scoffed. She then let out a sigh and then nodded. "I think we can move him. This hallway won't be good for him to stay in after all." She replied. They were able to safely move the girl earlier - Alex should be no different.

Hiroyuki Duma

Yumiko and Ryuu's discussion was stopped for the sake of their safety and protection. They could have this discourse at a later date - but as Yumiko did say, actions speak louder than words. She was too stubborn to step down from her belief so the discussion would just go in circles anyway. At least their injuries were healed and it was only Hikaru that was injured among them that was grave. He began to trail behind the others as they began walking down the path with the goal of getting to the next town over.

Hiroyuki was unsure how long it had been since they'd been walking. Maybe around two hours? Well, in any case, Ryuu suggested that they get healing out of the way and then proceed through the fields so that they wouldn't encounter any convoys of Fire Nation soldiers and run the risk of being recognized again. He mutely nodded at them. Yumiko was the only one capable of healing anyhow so they were reliant on her for this section. He kept a lookout for anyone who might be passing by - surveying the area silently as the group went to do their own thing.
