(( Possessed!Jou. Fun times, fun times. ))
*self-consciously touches the white bandage on her nose* O-oh, this? Uh, it’s nothing. I tripped, is all. *doesn’t want to worry you by telling you she got hurt in a fight*
tripped? how? did somebody trip you?
Huh? No, i-it’s nothing. Don’t worry, Lee. *tries to grin reassuringly, but it ends up looking funny because of the bandage*
Joonie and Bard, sitting on either side of Jo on the couch, instantly perked up at the knock. Joonie started barking excitedly as Jo got up to answer it.
"Joonie, calm now! Damn, every time with you…" The blonde strolled over and opened the front door. She smiled upon seeing Otogi.
"Hey Otogi! What are you doing here?"
Otogi gave the other girl a smile back as she held out the box to her “Here, It’s a birthday gift. It’s also pretty heavy, at least for me” Otogi said with a light laugh. She looked at the dogs with a light smile. She should probably look into getting some sort of pet.
Jo brightened even more as she excitedly took the gift. “Hellz yeah! More loot! Hahah!”
Giving Otogi a grin, she steps out of the way so that her friend can come inside- except the second she does, Joonie quickly moves in and sniffs excitedly at Otogi’s feet and legs. Jo sighs in fond exasperation. “Jooniiiiiie.”
Bard, being a good boy as usual, just calmly hops down from his place on the couch and strolls over, taking a seat next to Jo.
"It’s alright Jo, I knew you had dogs and It’s not surprising they’d be curious" Otogi commented as she knelt down and let both dogs smell her hands so that they got her scent.
She then lightly started to pet the more curious one that Jo had called Joonie.
"Yeah, but that don’t mean she needs to crowding you like this." Jo put on her stern face and voice. "Joonie. Come here."
The gold canine looked over and blinked a Jo a minute. Then without warning, she bolted over and practically tackled her owner to the ground, tail wagging gleefully. As Jo exclaimed in surprise, Bard simply walked past the two, sniffed Otogi’s hand, then gave it a small lick as if to say “hello”.
"That’s true" Otogi murmured as she watched the one dog bowl over Jo. She giggled a bit as it seemed that Joonie was alot like her owner though Otogi knew that Jo probably had a better idea on how to train dogs then her.
She looked at Bard when her hand was licked as she gave the dog a light chuckle “Hello” She murmured as she lightly pet the dogs head before she stood up.
"Oh for the love of- Will you get off?!" After struggling with Joonie a couple of seconds, Jo was finally able to shove the canine off her and sit up. "Cripes sake, you get worse every day…" Joonie merely panted happily in her master’s face. Jo groan and turned away. "Ew, dog breath…"
Pushing herself off the floor, Jo stood and picked up the package that had been dropped when Joonie tackled her. She looked back to Otogi. “Sorry bout that. Let’s take this party to the living room, kay?”
*laughs and playfully/lightly tugs on your wing* Aww, c’mon! You should be used to getting your hair messed up. What with all that flying, I bet the wind makes your hair go crazy.
It does not! *pushes back with said wing* I take very good care of my hair, I fix it if it is messed. And at least that has a good cause. *starts running his fingers through his hair, trying to fix it*
*chuckles again but backs off* Okay okay, your hair’s off limits. I won’t mess with it anymore. *gives you a teasing grin* And you can stop fussing, your hair looks fine. I hardly mussed it up at all.
*smiles and drops his hand, implicitly believing you* Thank you. I like being presentable. If I’m not people might think badly of me. *his face drops clearly upset at the idea*
*scoffs lightly* Who cares what other people think? If you really want to look nice and tidy then you should do it cuz you actually like too. Not because you’re worried about other people’s opinions. It’s your hair, you wear it however YOU want. Screw anybody who tells you different.
(( Whoo! Awesome! I’ll be sure to reply today then. I’m trying to reply to things right now but I’m out of RPing practice so I’m having a little trouble. ))
Here are all the unfinished RPs that I’ve been engaged in that last two or three months. If I’m forgetting a couple, feel free to remind me.
- Starbrightbakura: RP I & RP II
- Sanityprotectors (Roka)
If any of you are no longer feel like continuing our RP because I took too long to reply and you lost interest, I fully understand. Just let me know via askbox or fanmail and I’ll remove the RP from the list.
(( I’ve decided to FINALLY end my hiatus! So I’m reblogging this to make sure I didn’t forget any RPs. Please let me know if I forgot any or if you no longer wish to continue an RP with me. ))
The dynamic duo—Mai and Jou!
(( I’m always engaged in style experimentation…and this the end result. I’m fairly satisfied, although I feel Jou lacks the stylization that Mai has. I’ll probably tweak her design when I feel like it. ))

(( Concept art of Ancient Egyptian Jou. I figured she’s a traveling merchant with her father until they both die a horrible death thanks to uh the events leadng up to the Thief King and Zorc. 8|;; When they were targeted for strong kas, Jou became the Red-Eyes! Only Jou ended up dying, anyway. =7=;;;
Still in a work in progress. I’m really unsure how to go about this character. Any suggestions would be neat. c: ))
*while Jo was talking, Joey made herself at home and sat on the nearest chair as she listened to Jo speak. she looked down the whole time, her brows furrowed. occasionally she played with the end of her skirt, so she wouldn’t interrupt Jo when she felt the need to, but mostly she kept quiet until Jo finished*
A-Ah! It’s fine, I’m glad you didn’t hold nothin’ back. *she gave a polite smile in return before looking down again* Well you’re smarter than me, I always knew that much. I judged Bakura’s, too. I think its in us, ya know? We can’t exactly be blamed after what they put us through. I still gave most of ‘em a chance though, but especially Star since I knew he wasn’t from our world, and we… we played pirates and stuff!
We became pretty good friends, despite our arguments and disagreements.
…I didn’t actually mind him… stealin’ stuff. New to this world, whatever ya gotta do to get by, ya know? S’why we were gonna get him a proper house. I would have given him a good supply of food to start off and… ya know, girlfriend, job… I was happy for him.
When I found out about his… murderous girlfriend, well…
*nods along to what you’re saying then snorts a little* Pirates? Seriously?
*her smirk disappears instantly as you finish speaking and she stiffens, eyes widening as she stares at you*
*stop talking and closes her eyes, takes a breath, then grabs a chair of her own and slowly sits down in front of you. She braces herself for what she’s about to hear, an unpleasant - yet familiar- feeling welling in her stomach*
…What are you talking about, Joey…?
I-I like pirates, okay? *pouts a bit and then sighs* Yeah… I don’t remember every little detail… But… I’m pretty sure she just came straight out and said it. She practically taunted me with it. I was fightin’ with Star at the time but I just had to go talk to him about it. He… said he’d talk to her and try and get her to stop. Little… d-did I know… They’re not only just partners when it comes to romance…
*frowns deeply, runs a hand through her hair and shakes her head* …You know, I really shouldn’t find this so surprising. I mean, Of COURSE she’s crazy, of COURSE. She’s a MARIKU. Of fucking course. *pinches the bridge of her nose* Dammit all, I actually liked her…
*freezes in place, going stiff and still as a statue. After a long few second she slowly turns her head back to you, looking as if you’d just smacked her in the face*
…W-wha- *voice cracks and she has to clear her throat before trying again* What do y-you mean by… What are you s-saying…?
