Iron followed along Isabelle when they made their way towards the clothing store, rather glad it seemed like she didn’t noticed. For a normal person anyways. Iron has a vague idea that Isabelle did notice and she’s just pretending not to. Normally, Iron wouldn’t care too much, but he has a reputation to uphol- Iron starts coughing in a harsh manner in surprise as it was done in a rather blunt manner. Especially since it wasn’t an interest he was seeking to share with his team leader.

”I don’t know what you’re talking about.” Iron began to deflect Isabelle’s rather blunt invitation, even though it was done in an obvious conflict of interest. He was interested in attending the arcade yes, but he also wanted to appease Isabelle so that they can be done for the rest of the day. Not only that, but when Lucina would join, it would make the day far too interesting for his tastes should they make their way to the arcade.

”As a tactical genius, I assure you that this is all planned.” Hunter releases a rather shaky laugh as if he was trying to pass off the error he had made. Hunter turns on the faucet in the kitchen as he would then start moving into the living room to put all his personal belongings back to where they should be. While doing so, Hunter would think about how to turn this into a lesson. Even though he has experience with the idea of damage control (especially considering how he was before), it was hard for Hunter to sort of explain.

Making his way back into the living room, it then looks like Hunter was struck by an idea! The tactical genius reveals himself once again as Hunter had just figured out where to continue with the quick intro to his lesson. ”Though I suppose things like these just occur regardless of what you do. It’s natural to do things on impulse, so mastering the art of damage control would be an excellent thing to learn!”

Unfortunately, Hunter isn’t very good at controlling his impulses. Such as the fact that Hunter is pulling a rather large whiteboard out of nowhere as he starts to write some main points about damage control. ”There’s a few types of impulses. There’s the life threatening impulses, there’s the risky impulses, and there’s the relatively safe impulses!” At rather quick speeds - being the professor he is - Hunter would start write down what he’s saying just so it can be easily noted.

In a rather quick manner too, Hunter would proceed to draw Prim in a rather cute cartoony manner, although since it’s rushed, there’s some obvious tells about some flaw in the drawing. Right after, Hunter would draw small rough cartoon sketches of them both right now, all panicked and scared! ”Right now, this is a life threatening impulse, and to do damage control for those impulses are really tough. Understand so far?”

Is that a question about the V4 board as of now or how it originally was?

This technique had taken nearly three weeks for Prism to learn. She’d spent hours reading about aura theory in preparation. It’d taken another week just to learn how to summon her aura and keep it concentrated for extended periods of time. After two weeks of uselessly slashing her blade through the air, the first crescent she’d ever managed to throw had literally made her jump in surprise, it was weak and small and stuttered out halfway through her throw - but it was still enough to make a deep cut into the bark of the tree she was using as a target, and her resulting celebration was loud enough she got scolded by Madame Bernard when she’d returned to the sewing shop for dinner.

So when Juno manages to throw a crescent off his blade on his second try, it’s actually enough to make Prism start as it crashed through one of the holographic, leaving the back wall a spiderwebs of cracks. She’s quiet for a moment, glancing rapidly from Juno to the impact site and back again, before-

“Yoooooooo!”

Prism slaps the man on the back, bouncing on the her toes excitedly as she rewards Juno with a massive grin. Dude! It took me like- nearly a month to figure out how to do this, you managed it in fuckin’- two tries! Congrats man!”

“...we just need to work on precision and control now, plus I’m not sure uh, how much of that was a cutting edge.” she adds on, gesturing with her glaive to the impact site again.

Prism like to consider herself a realist.

She didn't’ consider the future a positive place, she knew she had to make it a positive place. It was only thanks to her relentless desire to preserve what remained of the legacy of her family she’d gotten into the first place. Endless sleepless nights, with sewing commissions and extra shifts and so many wasted bullets turning herself into cutthroat sniper. Turning the insomniac hours into semblance training, teaching herself to fly in a form that wasn’t just falling off a cliff more slowly and actually controlling where she went-

She’d survived off the concept of a dream for nearly five years, and in the very end she’d made that dream a reality.

So now, securing her place as a semifinalist in the Vytal Festival and having professional hunters reach out to her, asking to sponsor her and become their prodigy-

Well, she could consider the future a positive place. Just this once, she could see the real potential opening up before her.

At least that’s what she let herself think for a single golden moment, before Hunter suddenly starts pacing the kitchen like the place is on fire, recruiting her to help clean the place up. She only snorts to herself as she pushes her chair back, standing to her feet and gathering their now-empty bowls from the table. “I’m assuming this wasn’t exactly discussed with your wife ahead of time?”

So, how's everyone liking the V4 board?

Anything you really like? Anything you'd like to be different?

... In before every comment is "I like the quotes."

Clara has happy to finally be out of class, though she did not relish the journey back to her dorm.  While it had been relaxing to listen to while indoors, the rain had absolutely drenched her as she moved between buildings for her classes, and her lecture lasted just long enough for her clothes and hair to be merely damp.

So, it came as a pleasant surprise to find the sun shining as she left her lecture hall, and her mood brightened as she realized she didn’t have to battle the elements once again on her way back to her room.  With a smile on her face, she began to meander back across campus until she happened upon a peculiar sight.

Another student had crouched down at the edge of the sidewalk and was tentatively reaching out towards a puddle, only to pull away at the last minute as if yanking his hand out of reach of a snake.  After apparently failing to penetrate a puddle, Clara watched the young man get up and start desperately looking around, and she decided to take the opportunity to walk up.

”Umm, excuse me, are you alright?” she asked.

If this is about the typos, I noticed them a bit too late. Thanks for giving me the chance to correct them.
