[SS] Unknown Magnitude Serial Catastrophe R7wct3d5

[LOCATION: UNKNOWN. TIME: 13:07:88. DATE: AUGUST 16. STATUS: RED...]

The world was swaying.

Squinting, the boy opened his eyes and observed his surroundings. Were the lights simply far too bright for him to see, or was there something wrong with the dilation of his pupils? He had no way of knowing, not as he was now. But the light burned far too fiercely for him to look for more than a fraction of a second. Piercing past his eyes and into his brain, there was a pain as if a knife had been driven into his skull. He grunted in agony, and the resulting vibration of his inner ear generated an identical result. He had propped himself up in an attempt to get up, but now he fell to the floor once more.

The world was swaying.

The floor was cold; featureless concrete rough against his skin. He had glimpsed little in the way of details, but he had seen what was certainly metal bars, extending vertically from ceiling to floor. Though it pained him even to think, it was clear now what sort of place he was in. A prison; a jail cell. He knew what sort of place he was in now. And yet...

How did he get here? The world was swaying.

He thought and thought, dove back into the darkness of his most recent memories. He found nothing. It had been a normal day, normal activities. Nothing that could have led him here. And yet... Here he was. Imprisoned, having been either drugged, attacked, or both. And yet. And yet. And yet.

The world's swaying lulled the boy into slumber once more.



[LOCATION: SCHOOL DISTRICT 6, ACADEMY CITY...]

The cool night air had long passed, leaving an air of tragedy in its wake. Students, who should've been enjoying their summer break, found themselves langouring beneath the oppressive heat. The very summer that had brought them precious succor from their studies had now betrayed them. This too was life. The bravest among the young warriors had trekked out, abandoning the asylum of their air-conditioned dorm rooms in search of the days of their youth. No simple betrayal would stop those brave warriors accomplishing their mission, not matter what tragedy might be brought about.

Yet nestled among those youths was one who traveled with a very different destination in mind. With blonde hair and features that can be differentiated from the Japanese with but a glance, was Vita Vesta Caesar, self-proclaimed (for now) empress of Rome, and agent of Necessarius. A magician.

"What's with this city? It feels so gross," she said to herself, not bothering at all to speak in the local tongue. "It's not like Rome with its winding streets, and even compared the more planned cities in America, it's almost disgustingly organized... Is this place really meant for people?!"

It was a somewhat arbitrary sentiment. After all, it was precisely because it was meant for people that it was organized like so, in Academy City's trademark bleedingly efficient manner. Yet to Vita, rather than the usefulness that resulted from the matter, what stuck out to her more was the contrast with the city she called home, which had been built long before any sort of organized city planning had been possible.

"But at any rate, thanks to that I arrived a lot sooner than I'd anticipated. To the place where he was last seen..."

As it was mid-afternoon, students were milling about. But the density of the crowds was somewhat less than other parts of the city. Although it was District 6, known for its entertainment facilities, Vita was actually at the far east, near the border with the declining District 19, and its influence could be seen in the variety of shops scattered about the conditions of the alleyways that could be just barely seen from the main street. Also nearby was District 12, Academy City's theology studies division, but its influence didn't seem to extend quite so far outside of its borders.

Though not all of it was within Vita's field of vision perfectly, if one were to wander about some, they would find a variety of activities to partake in. There were shop owners frustratedly milling about inside their stores with no customers or employees in sight. There was litter scattered about the ground. There were a spare few groups of less-than-savory individuals cloistered away from the main stream of traffic, though they did not appear outright belligerent so much as simply unwelcoming. And if one were to venture beyond the streets and into the deeper alleys, yet more interesting sights were in store...

But for now, Vita remained where she was, waiting in front of a family restaurant. It was not yet time for her to begin her investigation. There was a certain someone she needed to wait for first.

"I know I arrived a bit early, but since they're living here, they still should've gotten here before me. Where are they?"

Though their agent for more under-the-table activities was missing, Necessarius did in fact have other associates within the city. It was precisely their arrival that she was awaiting. Yes: for a silver-haired nun and her spiky-haired protector.

District 6

There were times one wished the dress regulations in Tokiwadai weren't so strict. Times like the worst heatwave they had had during this summer for example.

*dee doo*

“Thank you for your patronage.”

"If only we could drop the vest at least..." Haruna thought miserably as she took the reluctant step outside, away from the sanctuary of the air-conditioned store and into the sweltering heat. Usually prim and proper even she had caved in the face of the nature and had the collar of her blouse unbuttoned. Being one of the few customers today she had a plastic bag in one hand, full of different cool beverages she had promised to fetch on the way back to the branch office. Water instantly begun condensing on the bottles almost like mocking the girl on her futile attempt to get the drinks in time when they were still cold.

The streets of the Academy City were unusually silent. Most of the inhabitants had holed themselves inside where air-condition and refreshments were readily available but like always there were no excuses from judgment duties and this was the sole reason Haruna had braved the scorching weather. Today she had to go alone since Yuzu and Lemon had taken one good look out and perched themselves in front of the fan. While irritated at the two for a second she couldn’t blame them. Only real fool would be out without a good reason.

Pushing forward sluggishly Haruna paid little attention to the delinquents loitering around. Even they seemed to be affected by the heat and didn’t have the energy to cause trouble but just to be sure she adjusted her Judgment armband in case some of them got some funny ideas.

The litter on the ground reminded her what their next duty today would most like be and she felt her shoulders drop a bit. Any other time it wouldn’t be a problem but today she just wished for office day and good old paperwork instead of patrol duty.

"Sigh, note to self: litter on ground near the border of districts 6 and 19. Must report this once back at the office. If only this was the biggest thing happening today..."

A certain Aero Hand found himself walking on the sidewalk of District 6. Apparently, the young delinquent was asked to turn in certain documents to a certain high school, before he may be resubmitted into the education system for the next semester. However..he didn't make it there, as on was there, his phone lost battery as the wire to charge it was chewed up by a rat overnight. So he was stuck wandering around the district, debating whether or not to go home, or completely succumb to the heat, trying to find the location.

"...What a drag.."

Sweat glistened off the grey haired boy's face, with only a collared white shirt on his chest and simple jeans. He did have a small backpack, with a single strap around his left shoulder, as he looked around. Being outside truly sucked, though there was an easy fix to his predicament. Simply changing the temperature around his skin would make things feel more refreshing. Unfortunately, the boy had a raging headache from all the trouble he's been having finding the school in question.

"I feel like I'm going in damn circles...Every time someone gives me directions, I almost immediately get lost after the third turn...I really have grown too dependent on GPS satellites."

The boy would come to a stop, seeing the local cafe seemed to have a surprisingly short line. While his money was in his phone, he did just so happen to have enough cash to warrant a large icy beverage. With optimism creeping into his mind, he went over, and a few minutes later, Damion Koyoko finally had something to keep his motivation up! A refreshing passion tea with a lemon. How lucky. With his tired eyes, he looked at the partly clear, violet drink and took a few sips on it. Those few sips were heaven in the summer heat.

"Haaaa~. That's much better. I'm sure I can go a few more hours with thi-"

Unfortunately for the young man, luck was a cruel mistress.

(MUSIC)

BONK!!!

The sound of two people colliding as Koyoko was turning the nearby corner. The delinquent was not paying attention, and perhaps neither did the person he collided with, being none other than Kirishima Haruna, everyone's(?) favorite judgement officer!

"....."

Koyoko was currently on the filthy floor, with his hands slightly behind his back, having caught his fall, but more notably...

Drip..drip...drip...

His beverage on his head, making his grey hair look slightly purple, more so then before, as it dropped onto the pavement and clothes. He could feel a few ice cubes had gotten under his shirt, and felt a torturing chill run through his body, but he did not move. After all, a piece of him really died inside with that crash.

"...This is too cruel.."

District 7, 8:00 A.M.

«No! Not again!»

A girl’s voice screaming in utter panic was echoing throughout a certain dormitory in District 7. Shortly after the sound of hectic steps would follow by a dull impact after someone had obviously toppled over. Then there was moaning. Then panic again.

That was your usual morning at the Kamijou residence. Or something like that.

A letter had arrived, pushed through the crack between door and floor. It had been sealed with some sort of red wax – the kind you would occasionally see in overly dramatic movies or animation. There was no need for her to open it, had she already done it twice or thrice with exact copies of the same letter. And that’s why she’d throw it into the trash right away. But each time she did, another letter would find its way through that crack, replacing its predecessor. So each time she’d panic, run across her apartment, stumble over an uneven spot in her floor’s structure and land flat on her jaw. It was a miracle she hadn’t sustained any lasting injury yet.

However, even more of a miracle was the amount of physical spam mail she kept receiving and receiving.

The worst about this, though, was that she was already running late for her makeup lessons once again. That heavy smoking and drinking teacher in the body of an elementary student wouldn’t be pleased at all. Especially not given that Kamijou had missed out on two consecutive days of lessons now. One because she had ended up stuck in the trunk of a shitty car in an even shittier school district for an entire night and then been chased around by some band of idiots, the other simply because she had been hospitalised after all that.

And now these letters had come, asking her to jump into another of these crazy messes.

District 7, 9:00 A.M.

The letters were still coming. Now, however, on top of even that pigeons had begun to drop them even on the balcony, meaning the merciless attack was now two sided.

«Index! Help me! We need to get rid of these ones as well!»

District 7, 10:00 A.M.

The letter spam had developed into a flood. The balcony had been entirely overrun by a wave of couverts. Behind the door a large pile akin to a mountain had formed. A mountain so tall it had actually breached into the middle of the hallway, even spreading into the kitchen. Throwing any of these into the trash or even out of the window was no longer an option.

District 7, 12:30 P.M.

The house had been overtaken entirely. An armada of pigeons had gathered on the balcony, throning atop the pile of infinite letters. The insides of the apartment itself had become an aquarium of paper. Transitioning anywhere was as impossible was finding a spot where there weren’t letters anymore.

Somewhere a spiky haired idiot’s head would stick out from the mass of paper and wax, crying in vein over their defeat. There was no hope any longer. No spirit to fight back against it. The makeup lessons had died and so had her spirits of running away from that obligation she had never asked for.

«Fine…we’re going…!»

District 7, 13:00 P.M.

Thus half an hour later, Kamijou Touko and the Index Librorum Prohibitorum would have finally boarded one of Academy City’s automatic buses, headed from District 7 to District 6.

Groaning under the pain of a broken will that spiky haired idiot was not at all looking forward to another day of unasked for problems.

[SS] Unknown Magnitude Serial Catastrophe Indexi11

“...Tou...ko…”

Index looked up with tearful eyes as she slowly approached a certain unfortunate girl with her arms outstretched. To the random bystander who did not know better, it almost seemed like the young silver-haired girl was asking for a hug, but for the spiky-haired idiot, she was perfectly aware of the precarious position that she had put herself in.

“Y-you were gone for two days…”
The nun continued with her lament as she reached out and grasped Touko by the bottom of her T-shirt. Unable to back away further, the spiky haired girl would attempt to calm down the ticking time bomb with some soothing words but before she could open her mouth -
“AND THERE WAS NO FOOD IN THE FRIDGE!”
Index bared her teeth and pulled Touko towards her.

Now panicked, Touko barely managed to free herself from Index’s grasp before making a break for it down the corridor.
“YOU CANNOT ESCAPE! DO YOU KNOW HOW LOUD MY TUMMY WAS RUMBLING?!”

Hurried footsteps, a dull impact, and then the inevitable screams began.

Not long after the biting had ceased, the distinctive sound of a letter being pushed underneath the door could be heard in the tiny apartment. The apartment was getting an unusual amount of letters, perhaps it was due to Touko’s mid-week getaway? Whatever the reason was, Index paid it no mind as she was busy attacking the food laid out in front of her by one particularly sore Touko.

«Index! Help me! We need to get rid of these ones as well!»

Index’s ignorance was short-lived, however, as more and more letters began, quite literally, flooding the room. In the span of a few hours, the normal scenery of the apartment was turned into a tempst of paper, wax, and pigeons (?) Under the threat of being crushed by the letters, Index was forced to join Touko in throwing the letters back through the windows and doorway, whilst fending off any additional avarian reinforcements.

“Touko Touko, this is hopeless! There are just too many of them!” Index shouted before being hit by yet another wave of letters.

«Fine…we’re going…!»

Still half-dazed by the paper onslaught,Index was dragged out of the apartment by Touko, going off on another adventure with the unfortunate girl.

Having gone through that hell of a morning consisting of continuous garbage disposal after being chewed upon that monstrous nun jaw after having survived two days of another hell, Kamijou Touko had been reduced to just an empty husk of a human, resting on these not really comfortable last row bus benches as though they were the beddings of a coffin’s inside.

Yes, to say she was in bad shape was a bold understatement.

And as things are with people sucked off all their energy their perception of the world is just a hollow fragment of reality. In this state many things could slip their mind. Minuscule ones like the name of the person they were supposed to meet – especially given that it is a foreign one –, the meeting time, the actual calendar date or the idea of carefully listening to the announcement of the respective next bus stops.

Yet, when these things reoccur to one, they can sometimes be just a tad too late.

«Next stop is Majima Boulevard. This is the last stop.»

«Mhm…last…stop?»

Slowly catching up to the distant reality of that warped voice, the spiky haired husk would awaken from its slumber.

«Hold on…Majima Boulevard…?»

The gears were slowly coming into place.

And as they were, the engine would start up once more.

«We missed our stop!! Index wake up! Wake up!!»


Shaking the white nun next to her while empowered by her sudden panic, Kamijou would hastily launch an attempt at recovery. However, – unknowingly – to absolutely no avail. The bus was about to stop and the stop they had actually been supposed to take had been six ago. And – as if that wasn’t enough – another announcement followed shortly after.

«Due to a technical malfunction all buses on this line will be put to halt for the next hour. We hope for your understanding.»

District 19, 13:37 P.M.

Thus, another by foot journey would commence.

Index opened her eyes. Still a bit disorientated, the silver-haired nun tried to make sense of her surroundings. Her skin felt cold, and she could sense the wind tugging at her clothes; she was laying on something soft, grey, and… blobish. Index let out a yawn as the world around her slowly came into focus. The shifting grey-ish blob which she was sitting on revealed itself to be a giant pigeon, and beneath that, was several thousand meters of air.

“Uwah! What is this! Where am I! How did I get here!” Index shouted as she flailed her arms around.

“Yo Index!”

A familiar voice came from behind her, as Index turned around to look for its owner, the sight of Touko (holding hotdogs and riding on a similarly upsized envelope like a surfboard) greeted her.

“Ehhhh?! Touko! What is that thing you are riding on? Why are you here? Why am I here?” Index continued with her barrage of questions.

“Don’t worry Index, we are on our way to Majima Boulevard!” Touko said with an oddly cheerful voice, "So now is the time to-

<<Wake up Index, we missed out stop! Index wake up! Wake up!>>


“Uwahhhhhhh...”

Index once more opened her eyes, and the silver-haired nun tried again to make sense of her surroundings. To her relief, instead of a giant pigeon, the familiar sight of a bus was what greeted her this time.

The initial wave of gratefulness for the familiar was quickly dispelled, however, when Index absorbed the content of Touko’s wake up call.

“Ehhhh?!”


“Touko Touko, Do you even remember who we are going to meet?” Index said whilst munching on a sandwich wrapped in a paper bag which Touko bought in order pacify her after finding out they have to walk all the way across district 6.

“Well well, it is important to know that. A warm and welcoming greeting makes for a good impression you know?” Index said sagely whilst crossing her arms, ignoring the fact that they were well past the arranged time as well as the fact that the identity.

Post  Vita Vesta Caesar on Mon Nov 11, 2019 12:28 am

[From the Point of View of Kirishima Haruna]

"Owww... What was that for?"

Sprawled on the ground, hands and legs thankfully free of scrapes but rear aching painfully from the unceremonious impact with the concrete, Haruna unconsciously voiced a complaint towards her present circumstances. First she had to be out on patrol in this vicious heat, and now she had to suffer this disgrace - she couldn't prevent her dissatisfaction from leaking out. But when she recovered from her shock and directed her eyes ahead of her, she immediately felt a surge of regret for her unthinking response.

"...This is too cruel.."

Well-bred girl that she was, she couldn't help but feel pity at the sight of the boy in his current state of affairs. She could see the purple drink staining his (dyed?) silver-ish hair, dripping onto the concrete, and she immediately understood what he must be feeling having lost his salvation in this dreadful heat. Even then she wasn't truly certain whether or not she ought to respond or make an excuse to hurry and go on her way, the obvious delinquency of his delinquent features standing out delinquentishly to her well-mannered eyes, but in the end her upbringing won out and she approached him as one might a frightened animal.

It'll be okay, Haruna. He may look scary, but that doesn't mean he's a bad person! And you were partially at fault, too, not paying attention to where you were going!

Her resolution decided upon, she stood herself up and offered a hand to help the boy up, other hand holding down the hem of her skirt so as to prevent any unfortunate accidents. A sense of timidity was plain on her expression, but the fact that she was reaching a hand out said as much and more about her personality.

"U-Um... Excuse me, but are you alright?"

"U-Um... Excuse me, but are you alright?"

A somewhat concerned, hesitant, but delightful voice rang in the delinquent's ears for a moment, as he slowly raised his head. He would see a judgement officer, with glistening blonde hair, almost reflective off the sun's glamorous rays. This must of been the person who he inadvertently bumped into...and who's empty cup was currently sitting atop his head. At least, there was some good news. He didn't feel as hot anymore. But now he had...whatever was spilled on him staining his clothes...it was probably going to get sticky too.

"...No, but I'll survive."

Koyoko slowly got up, grabbing the cup off his head and made a hefty sigh. He'd raise his hand a little pointing to the sky for a mere moment, as a sudden gust of air suddenly lashed at his buddy. Tugging his hair and clothes upwards. An esper ability. Level 2 Aerohand. What was he doing? Air drying! He at least wanted to get most of the juice out of his hair without touching it and getting it all over his hands. So just having a quick wind pull most of the droplets out real quick was helpful...though it did make his hair a bit messier.

"I need to really watch where I'm going...Aaah, crap! Even the registration forms were stained..Gaaaaaaaah! I screwed up! I went out into this stupid heat for nothing!!..."

The boy then began to ruffle his own hair in frustration as he dropped the papers on the ground. His plan was foiled by a meddling kid! Though after this small tantrum, he forgot that he had something else he should probably do.

"Ah...Ahem. S-sorry about earlier. Bumping into you that is. You're not hurt or anything are you..?"
