The Madman of the Outlands
He listened to her explain it as best she could. This wasn't some tool or easy thing to crush. Crushing Hachiman wasn't an option not for Tatsuya anyways. He wouldn't crush another being again for as long as he lived if he could help it. But he couldn't compare this to a zanpakuto either. The box had the zanpakuto and him in it already. This was akin to a figure coming in from a different country to stay. Not knowing the language or dialect of the place. Negative emotions and violence drove Hachiman. He wanted bloodshed and a ravenous desire to consume everything. Not just Tatsuya though he was on the menu too clearly. He'd not been sure if he cleared the hollofication hurdle. Ulv had used a mask previously and so had other vizards. That seemed like years down the road as his mind focused on this. He couldn't face Hachiman with negativity or violence as those simply fueled him. But those were traits Tatsuya knew best at this moment. Violence and such emotions wouldn't serve him any good here."I..think I understand, though it doesn't make it any easier. Guess all I can do is..try and reach out to him."
He said thinking about it as he didn't know how else to do this. It wasn't the same as Amateratsu in that way. Hachiman was a new feeling and held a darker aura. It held a bloodlust and wild nature to it as Tatsuya closed his eyes. Breathing softly and slowly trying to focus on finding the hollow. It was hard as his body was in pain as he looked for Hachiman. He knew the being was within him and close for that much. Hachiman's persona was violent but not simple. He was cunning and willing to wait like a strategist on the battlefield. But a bloodthirsty hunger did linger on the being. Destruction and violence were two aspects. But something more did exist in Hachiman. Tatsuya wasn't simple and so neither was Hachiman. Slower and shallower breaths as he felt his inner world draw closer around him. "I'm not good at this sort of thing, Hachiman where are you?"
Tatsuya looked around before the man appeared his burning body cracked along the skin. As his lips formed a grin. "Oh this is cute, trying to play therapist right now? Want me to look at some ink blots and tell you what I see? "
Tatsuya found him through the next part wasn't going to finish here. Therapist huh, Tatsuya could have used one of those years ago. Frustrating as it was he tried to think about how to do this. "Not really Hachiman, though I guess you ain't far off."
Small talk was not his specialty or anything as he watched the hollow smile wider. "Seriously this is adorable, you trying to be buddy buddy with the guy trying to eat you. Let me guess this was the wise dog lady's idea? Doesn't seem likely it would be yours because remember I am you after all? Best I'd manage is a punch to the jaw at this point."
Tatsuya could say he was using misdirection by using jokes and sound clever. But small talk like this just wasn't his strongest suit.

The Flame Of Hope
Artist: Carrotwine - Song: Dark Side Of The Road
"They will try to distract you. They will snap and snarl and hiss and spit. Because it is all they know how to do. They will be hostile and violent because they know no other way. Don't be discouraged by that. Let them see that things exist beyond what they know. Let them experience the sky beyond the sky, and then see where that leads" she told him, some final council. And then, when he entered his Inner World to talk with Hachimon, Ulv gently turned and left silently, as to not disturb him. Right now, would be the time where only he could help himself. This first hurdle was his alone.
