THE BLADE MAIDEN




KAGAYAKU NO MURASAKI




Man, deserts were hot. And, you know, the heat wouldn't be so bad on its own. Murasaki was fine with all sorts of weather. The problem was the heat combined with all the sun, and the sand. There wasn't anything super wrong with sand, it could be nice too. All this together was really just a perfect storm of bleh. But where was Murasaki that such “bleh” could be facing her? Why, she was in Qatar, of course. And why would she be in Qatar? Well, that was her business, wasn't it?

Usually she wore her captain's haori when she was out on something a bit more on the official side, but today she'd decided against it. It wasn't that she was trying to be undercover or anything, but this was something closer to a personal trip. If it went to business, that'd be great, but Murasaki had other stuff she wanted to talk about that had nothing to do with her captainly duties. So with all the confidence she typically had, the young shinigami spurred her horse onward to find her quarry; one Stefan Soan.

It had been a long trip, but she was pretty sure this was the place. It was big and impressive, definitely the kind of thing she'd heard to be looking for. Of course, she also heard that sometimes he was in Indonesia instead of here, and if that was true she was probably gonna cry. That'd be a long trip to bring the horse, and she didn't want this to take any more time than absolutely necessary. After slipping off of her horse and stretching out, she gave a quick knock on the door, which she idly considered might actually not even do anything, before rocking back and forth on her heels in impatience, and fiddling with her hair while she waited. This was a big deal, and she'd hate for it to just be nothing.

Artist: Final Fantasy 13-2 OST - Song: The Last Hunters (Battle Theme) - Word Count: N/A

These days Stefan Soan spent most of his time between the capitals of Qatar and Indonesia, Doha and Jakarta respectively. These two cities were the central locations of power in the Free Union, a relatively small but strong union of nations led by Stefan. While never having been a fan of the more intricate aspects of leading others, the Free Union was an exception he made because it was an opportunity to create an area immune to the nonsense of the rest of the world. There were no raving hordes of Hollows or Demons anywhere in the Free Union, no unrest from the type of bullshit Icelanders and Australians had somehow lived through. While personally a lover of conflict and war, believing both breed the very best of the best and ensures they rise to the top, it didn't make sense for the current one-sided situation on Earth to have its tendrils in every country. There was no worry of the Free Union getting attacked, no worry of needing to mobilize any sort of armed forces. The only army it needed was Stefan Soan, and the rest of the world knew it.

Today Stefan found himself in Doha, capital of Qatar and the Free Union, as well as home to his personal underground vault. The sun shone bright and hot, bathing the hyper advanced city in warmth mitigated by a massive bio-dome like machine embedded in the streets. Though located in one of the hottest regions on Earth with deserts on one side and the ocean on the other, this machine kept Doha far cooler than it otherwise would be. Along with the artificial weather and temperature, democratic-socialist economic policies and a strong focus on education and building the very best people in the world, the Free Union was like a utopia and stood in stark contrast to the rest of the chaotic environment of the planet.

It being the middle of the day meant Stefan was currently using the specially-built training facility in the non-government capital building which had operated temporarily as the Monsuta's headquarters. Now it functioned more as his private facilities which also held the elevator down to the vault. In the middle of using one of the machines capable of providing hundreds of thousands of pounds to lift, and thus one of the few that provided any level of resistance against his strength, an alert rang out indicating the presence of a foreigner at his doorstep. "Jesus, can I have one day off from randos?" Once off the machine, Stefan made his way up a flight of stairs and through the incredibly plain hallways of the building to the side door Murasaki had knocked on. On his way there the security system informed him of the stranger's identity as Captain in the Gotei, which wasn't all that surprising given another Captain, Henrex, had approached him recently as well.

Opening the door revealed his form slightly taller than Murasaki, who herself was rather Amazonian for a woman, clad in a thin training garment consisting of a black t-shirt doing little to disguise the muscular frame beneath it, shorts matching his verdant hair in color, and a rolled up towel resting on his wide shoulders. "Why is a Gotei Captain standing on my doorstep?"

THE BLADE MAIDEN




KAGAYAKU NO MURASAKI




Much of the detail of Doha was lost on Murasaki, due to a combination of a few factors. The first was that she just wasn't here for any of that, and so she really didn't think much of it. The second, though, was that she was a little too simple a girl to really be impressed by it. She liked things nice and quiet, and her perfect city wouldn't be much more than a few yurts and a big campfire. Of course, things didn't tend to be perfect for anyone, and that included her at this very moment, as Stefan greeted her with her position she'd actively hoped not to bring into this.

“Well, uh, I came here to talk. Hope that's okay. I know a lot of people would probably be more looking to fight, but I'm not really one to go beat someone up just because, ya know? I have sake and a few snacks, if you're interested. Tea too, but I'd have to heat it up obviously. Can I come in?”

There was something profoundly earnest about Murasaki's tone and approach as she spoke. Of course, that likely had to do with it actually being entirely genuine. She had no ulterior motives, no hostile intent. She was just here to talk to Stefan Soan, over whatever he wanted to talk about it over. Hopefully that included what she'd brought, because she liked what she'd brought, but if not that was okay, too.

Now, obviously she wasn't simply here for no reason. No, she most certainly had a very specific topic in mind to discuss with the former Monsuta king. But that could wait at least a bit, until she had better established herself and the conversation at hand. She was no dummy, and she knew that just jumping right to it would be...well, not ideal for her. And while things didn't tend to be ideal, that didn't mean she'd just jump right to it.

“I guess it's not really a surprise you knew I was a Captain, but hopefully that doesn't get in the way here. I'm not trying to arrest you on behalf of the Gotei or anything like that. I know there's some people that'd do that in a heartbeat, but that's not really my style.”

Artist: Final Fantasy 13-2 OST - Song: The Last Hunters (Battle Theme) - Word Count: N/A

"At this point in my life I'm not too worried about getting 'beaten up' or 'arrested'. I wouldn't really care if you were a foot soldier or Captain Commander, just seems odd I keep getting visitors from the Gotei." While speaking Stefan turned around and walked back inside, nonchalantly hand waving at Murasaki as he did to indicate she could follow. Whatever her objective here, Stefan was confident if things turned violent somehow by allowing a stranger into his home he could take care of whatever came about. After all, if he couldn't take her down inside the building then not permitting her entrance wouldn't have really mattered anyway. Either he's the stronger one or he's fucked. The situation's two possibilities didn't bother him in the slightest.

Assuming Murasaki followed, Stefan would lead her through the incredibly plain white-walled hallways of the massive complex he called home for just a couple minutes before turning down a hall with a series of doors on each side. As they walked Stefan spoke to break the silence. "This building used to house the Monsuta's civilian-side operations while the headquarters in Jakarta was military-side. Now it's basically empty since the government is located elsewhere. It's nice not having to constantly be bothered with stupid shit anymore, which basically sums up the Monsuta." Not wanting to get too into how much the current iteration of the organization bothers him, as well as knowing they were almost to the designated area, Stefan dropped the subject.

After only a couple minutes more of walking the plain hall opened up to a massive amphitheater with three other exits and a windowed ceiling, allowing natural light in to bath the room in warmth. The ornate fixtures, domed architecture, and elegant furnishings was in stark contrast to the boring and simple design of the hallways the two had just walked through. "Here, come sit if you wanna talk about shit." After gesturing toward a couple of suede chairs with a small coffee table between them, Stefan walked over and sat down after pulling the other out slightly for Murasaki. "Small talk ain't exactly my strong suit, so feel free to get to the point. And if you want something a little stronger than sake, I've got plenty of Arak to go around." Stronger indeed, Stefan's specially-made drink of choice was sweet in flavor and 120 proof.

THE BLADE MAIDEN




KAGAYAKU NO MURASAKI




“Aw, am I not the first one? Well darn. But, I hope that doesn't get in the way of this meeting here. I'm not exactly here with the other Captains in mind if ya know what I mean.”

Following along after Stefan, Murasaki listened in quite intently to his explanation of the elaborate building. She had little input to give, though she nodded in acknowledgment as he spoke, with an aura not unlike an old Japanese man giving a quiet, but firm, “Aa, sou desu.” It was polite, and there was definitely genuine interest there, but it seemed like all of this was just a little beyond Murasaki.

Upon arrival in the designated speaking room, though, her entire demeanor became far brighter, as if matching the sunlight that shined through the windows. The young Captain found all this exceptionally pretty, and she smiled a good deal as Stefan pulled out a seat for her. What a gentleman.

“Arak? I've never had it, but I'll try anything once.”

Of course, she would never simply take without giving, and so she set her intricately wrapped parcel of goodies onto the coffee table and began setting it all out. It was a veritable feast of snacks, including a small gourd of her favorite sake, all held within a well-crafted lacquered wooden box. Pulling out two sake dishes, she poured the sake quite intently, sliding one across to him before continuing to lay out the snacks. Once she finished, it was clear that most of it was candy, and after taking a single sip of sake, it was clear that she still meant all business.

“I'm not super great with small talk either, so I'm glad you're not one for it. I'll skip all that formal stuff since I don't think you'd be a big fan, and just get right to the big question I'm here for.”

Crossing one leg over the other, and taking another sip of sake, it seemed as though a good deal of Murasaki's childish demeanor simply fell away from her. She was still certainly youthful, both in energy and appearance, but it was clear now that she still had all the maturity of a girl her age. Her gaze on Stefan was still entirely kind, but it was also profoundly determined.

“I heard you're not really doing too much these days, but I've also heard you're not a super big fan of Shadow Fall, and these days they're not exactly a tiny problem. I know you're hardly a superhero or anything, but I'm not here to talk about stuff you've done. I'm here to talk about stuff you can do, and I'm here to see if you'll work in my Division.”

Artist: Final Fantasy 13-2 OST - Song: The Last Hunters (Battle Theme) - Word Count: N/A

Approving of her willingness to try new things, especially a drink given how set-in-their-ways people seemed to be these days, Stefan nodded and placed both a transparent jug and half-full glass of water on the table between them. As Murasaki assembled all the things she brought, Stefan uncorked the jug and poured a clear liquid with a pungent, though not unpleasant, smell into the glass of water. Upon mixing the appearance of the glass's contents rapidly changed until it was much more opaque, almost milky in color and viscosity. Unlike the most common brews of Arak, Stefan's personal drink of choice was more than just grapes and anise in flavor due to possessing a mixture of apple and orange juice as ingredients. The end result was incredibly strong, having an alcohol content of 60% with a powerful fruity and licorice flavor. Though perhaps not wildly popular with most people, it was at the very least similar to practically no other drink in the world and thus only found in Stefan's home.

As he listened to the Captain speak across the table from him, Stefan nonchalantly grabbed a small cream-colored candy and tossed it in his mouth. It was subtle in flavor and chewy, a combination he didn't mind. Afterward he lifted and sipped from the cup of sake she'd prepared for him, and while it was decent in taste, Stefan preferred stronger beverages. Her statements implied similarities between the two swordsmen, though Stefan highly doubted the truth was so simple. From first glance she may dress as peculiarly as him, as if transported from a time long since past, and her overall demeanor was steady and confident though not arrogant. However, her tone and choice of words hinted at a person far less crude than himself. Still, compared to the recent confrontations he'd had with people from organizations like the Gotei, the fact she at least seemed somewhat normal was nice. Not some blind asshole robot or ninja.

Captain Murasaki's final words were certainly surprising to Stefan, though they wouldn't elicit much of a response on his face. If he thought about his past, having repeatedly war against both Earth and the Gotei, going so far as to invade the Seireitei and hospitalize multiple captains, it seemed a bit odd she'd go out of her way like this to invite him to the org. Perhaps Stefan's previous deduction of her not being arrogant was incorrect. Yet when he looked into her eyes, all he saw was true determination. Like a warrior on the brink, refusing to give up despite the overwhelming odds against her. Still, it was difficult for him to take such an offer seriously considering both his history and current standing. "Yanno, it takes some pretty big brass ones to come into my home and ask me of all people to work for you. Unless you planned on being my Lieutenant, which seems unlikely to say the least."

Seemingly implying an abrupt end to this meeting due to Murasaki's statements, Stefan stood suddenly and glared down at the Shinigami sitting across from him. Utter fierceness permeated from his green gaze, an intimidating sight to say the least. And then, just like that, his entire expression changed to one of friendliness. "How 'bout this, if you can prove yourself to me then I'll consider joining your division. There's even a specially built training center in this very building. Whattya say?" Assuming she agreed to his proposal, Stefan moved from the table and headed down one of the nearby hallways. As he left, hopefully with her in tow, he began speaking as he'd done when they first came in. "Don't worry about what you brought, either you can grab 'em when you leave or I'll eat 'em some time." After just a minute of walking the two would reach and enter an elevator that possessed enough space for the two and almost ten more people.

Knowing the ride would be long, Stefan broke the silence and spoke again. "For most people, particularly humans, their sword is strongest before their first swing. Everything after just tears away and blunts the blade....but for people like us, it's different. Our weapons are honed over time, through bloody battle. Much like people. That's why the sword is the ultimate companion, because when you hone yourself by pushing past your own limits, your Zanpakuto is doing the same. It's becoming sharper, more refined, stronger. People talk about blades as if they're naturally this beautiful thing, or should be put in a glass box and looked at. That's bullshit. The most beautiful sword is one that's already been damaged and rebuilt and that's grown just as much as it's wielder. Otherwise, it might as well be a paper weight."

As if to emphasize his final point, the elevator suddenly stopped and opened it's thick metal doors. Now opened up to the two was a massive empty facility larger than a football field with walls as tall as a Ferris wheel. The light emanating from ceiling fixtures bathed the room in a light that almost seemed natural, less man-made and more like from the Sun itself. Into this room walked Stefan, who approached the center and summoned a black-sheathed katana which radiated Reiatsu as potent as his own and gripped it with his left hand. "Lets see if your blade has any beauty to it."

THE BLADE MAIDEN




KAGAYAKU NO MURASAKI




As Murasaki took a long sip of the arak, she made a face that suggested she had been unprepared for its strength, though the wide smile shortly after also seemed to imply that she had enjoyed the flavor. It was an intense one, but not one she disliked. Something kind of like shochu, she guessed, though definitely sweeter. She liked it, she decided, and she gave a small, approving nod.

“Well, I guess you could say I do. Hope you don't mean that literally though. Think it'd take away from my girlish charms.”

While Stefan's gaze was certainly intimidating, a combination of general youthful cheer and genuine determination kept her from being immediately put off by it. Instead she nodded once more, following after her host with a spring in her step. She listened intently to his words, with her attention quite clearly all on the much stronger warrior.

It was hard to say if she agreed with him all the way, but all of what Stefan was saying weny a little over her head. For the most part she got his point, but she couldn't quite get the full scope of what he was saying. Maybe it was just her though, so she tried not to look too confused about any of it.

Seeing Stefan ready a blade that she could only assume was his zanpakuto, the Hanpakuto readied both of her own swords. Keifu in her right hand, Kagayaku in her left, Murasaki took up her beginning stance. It was relaxed, free of what would seem to be any serious stress. She knew that this was likely to be a fight to the death, but that was exactly why she avoided any tension. Too much of that could throw her off all the way, and there was no way she could afford that here.

“Well they say beauty's in the eye of the beholder. But personally, I'd say I'm the prettiest sword in here.”

Murasaki smirked, then, and lowered herself only for a moment before disappearing in a white flash with Kagayaku. She thought about jumping behind Stefan, but he'd probably see that one coming, and it wasn't very personal, anyway. Besides, he'd probably appreciate the more direct approach more. The instant she reappeared directly in front of her green-haired opponent, she swung with Kagayaku, aiming upward from below toward the former Monsuta head's torso. Keifu stayed at the ready, to follow up or even to deflect if truly need be.
