OOC: Normal = Sena, Italics = Youji.

[It's been a slow and lazy few weeks, just going to work at the shop and coming home every day--a brief look at the network before settling down with his most recent acquisition--a used, slightly abused, alto saxophone. He usually made sure the door was completely closed before starting to play--but it was ajar today, if only slightly, letting the sound of his playing filter out into the hallway.]

[For the most part, Youji's been taking it easy since Aya's birthday and related aftermath. The music surprises him at first, as he comes back from a walk. He recognizes a brass instrument immediately, and that it isn't a recording. But as far as Youji knows, there is only one musician on the floor. Yes, he remembered that one dream, and is a bit surprised to hear Sena practicing now.

So he approaches the door, still ajar, and, for now, simply turns on his Dreamberry. To broadcast. Hey, other people broadcast music performances.]

[If Sena knew this was being broadcast, he would be entirely embarrassed. It's been a few years since he's played, and while he's not bad, the lack of practice is showing--the sound is a bit flat, he's missed a couple notes here and there. Youji caught him in the middle of the song, so it's over not long after.]

[It wasn't a bad rendition, and Youji isn't enough of a music man to notice the mistakes--although the flat sound registers a bit in the back of his mind. He nudges the door open a bit further--what kind of assassin would fail to notice that? And we're still recording.]

[Yeah, his door's kinda squeaky. Sena jumps about five feet in the air, turns--and stares.]

"Youji? What are you..."

[aaaand then he notices the Dreamberry.]

"Well, you were giving such a lovely concert, I thought I'd share it with the rest of the world. Take a bow."

[He wishes the Dreamberry had a zoom; he doesn't know where Sena's chakram is, so he isn't approaching just yet.]

[which is probably smart on his part, Sena'd punch him.]


[suddenly, there's a pillow flying at your head.]

[Youji slams the door shut, just barely blocking the pillow. He pokes his head and the Dreamberry in again, after a moment.]


[There's another one ready for him when he opens that door again.]


[rar, fluffy rage.]

[Youji lets that one hit him. It's only a pillow, after all.]

"Is that the image you want to show all of your new fans?"

[you are not making this easy on you. Fluffhead can hold a grudge.]

"Out, before I HURT you!"

"Technically, I never actually came in."

[but some people have no sense of humor, so Youji does start to leave.]

[Sena's one of them at the moment. He slams the door closed all the way behind Youji, 'cause heaven knows he left it open, and lock it. Nothing if not a teenager, this one.]

[At which point, Youji turns off the broadcast. And leaves his Dreamberry outside Sena's door--if someone calls about the broadcast, Sena can answer it.]

[Congratulations. Naomi is actually laughing softly.]

What a friendship you have. Amusing if nothing else.

[identity profile] 2010-06-26 11:44 pm (UTC)(link)
[Sena's grumbling. totally X( faced.]

He's a jerk.

[identity profile] 2010-06-26 11:49 pm (UTC)(link)
It certainly looks like he is.

[identity profile] 2010-06-27 12:52 am (UTC)(link)
He's probably going to regret he did this later, at least. I won't even have to think of a way to get him back for it.

[identity profile] 2010-06-28 05:47 am (UTC)(link)
Not really. But he'll probably be pissed that you called when he left his Dreamberry with me.

He's that kind of guy.

[identity profile] 2010-06-28 06:18 am (UTC)(link)
Oh, I see. [She winks.] That kind of guy.

[identity profile] 2010-07-01 04:34 am (UTC)(link)
I'll probably hide his Dreamberry just on principle though.

[identity profile] 2010-06-27 02:49 am (UTC)(link)
[totally laughing over here]

Nobody ever appreciates a good prank.

[identity profile] 2010-06-27 02:52 am (UTC)(link)
I appreciate good ones. That wasn't one.

[identity profile] 2010-06-27 03:07 am (UTC)(link)
Sure it was. It would have been better if you'd been doing something else, though!

[identity profile] 2010-06-28 07:52 pm (UTC)(link)
It was funny to everyone else.

[identity profile] 2010-07-01 04:12 am (UTC)(link)
Then everyone else needs to get their sense of humor checked out.

[identity profile] 2010-07-01 04:18 am (UTC)(link)
No they don't! You just need to take it less seriously~

[identity profile] 2010-07-01 04:36 am (UTC)(link)
Whatever. I should go give him his Dreamberry back.

Or throw it in the lake.

[identity profile] 2010-07-01 05:17 am (UTC)(link)
You should hide it. Make him look for it!

[identity profile] 2010-06-28 05:42 am (UTC)(link)
Maturity is a strong suit here apparently.

[identity profile] 2010-06-28 05:45 am (UTC)(link)
I don't know what his excuse is, I'm only 16.

[identity profile] 2010-06-28 05:46 am (UTC)(link)
Reliving his childhood perhaps.

Something that is a mystery since childhood meant spankings and time outs.

[identity profile] 2010-06-28 05:49 am (UTC)(link)
I wouldn't know. My parents always just lectured me when I did something wrong.

[identity profile] 2010-06-28 05:51 am (UTC)(link)
Lectures can be just as trying.

[identity profile] 2010-07-01 04:36 am (UTC)(link)
I guess.

[mommy issues over here would rather have the lectures if it meant he had his mom, though. D: did we get on this again?]

[identity profile] 2010-07-02 07:24 pm (UTC)(link)
I do not believe we've met before. I am Hatori Sohma.

[intentional subject change? yep.]

[identity profile] 2010-06-28 05:43 am (UTC)(link)
Sena...did Youji leave his Dreamberry with you?

[Oh does he know how Youji functions.]

[identity profile] 2010-06-28 05:44 am (UTC)(link)
Yeah, he did. Tempted not to give it back.

[identity profile] 2010-06-28 05:45 am (UTC)(link)
You can bring it to my place. Youji can come collect it later.

[identity profile] 2010-06-28 05:49 am (UTC)(link)
Or I could go throw it in the lake.

[identity profile] 2010-06-28 05:52 am (UTC)(link)
I doubt he'd be willing to swim for it.

[identity profile] 2010-06-28 06:19 am (UTC)(link)
Won't know until he has a reason to try, now will we?

[identity profile] 2010-07-01 04:33 am (UTC)(link)'re not exactly discouraging me.

[identity profile] 2010-07-02 07:23 pm (UTC)(link)
That's very observant of you, Sena.
