*** Now talking in #suburbansenshi
Topic is -= High Society killed my dog =-

[09:55] <FireFly_9> Why are there huge craters in the front yard?
[09:56] <Mdm_Maestro> That would be from the autoguns, trying to kill Haruka when she attempted to sneak into the house during the anniversary party the other night.
[09:56] <FireFly_9> ...
[09:57] <FireFly_9> I thought you wanted her to propose to you? How can she do that if you're shooting at her?
[09:57] <Mdm_Maestro> She's banned from this house until she proposes. She has a cellular phone, she can call me when she's ready to come out of the cold.
[09:58] <FireFly_9> Michiru-momma... she loves you, I don't see this urgent need for a proposal. For as long as I've known you all, your love has been more or less a constant, despite your arguments and differences of opinion.
[09:58] * Mdm_Maestro looks at Hotaru sadly
[09:59] <Mdm_Maestro> Hotaru-chan... when you were possessed by Miss Dream, there was a moment... when I was blinded, and holding Haruka back...
[09:59] <FireFly_9> I remember.
[10:00] <Mdm_Maestro> I drowned myself to allow her to live.
[10:00] <FireFly_9> I know.
[10:00] <Mdm_Maestro> I gave my LIFE for her, Hotaru-chan, and she won't give me a RING!?
[10:01] <FireFly_9> Michiru-momma, I don't think it's like that.
[10:02] <Mdm_Maestro> If I learned one thing there it's that we could die at any time. Some new enemy could arise, or one of us could get hit by a truck. I don't WANT to put this off any longer!
[10:02] <FireFly_9> Michiru-momma...
[10:03] <Mdm_Maestro> That stubborn, unyielding, insensitive... COW!
[10:03] *** Mdm_Maestro [] has quit IRC (BAKA!)
[10:03] <FireFly_9> How electrifying, mortality's icy touch...
[10:04] * @spiritflame changes topic to `Haruka's circumstances`
[10:05] * C'est_la_V sits near Haruka-san under a tree, wincing a little
[10:05] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> LOL partied a little too hard, huh?
[10:06] <C'est_la_V> Moh, the temperature dropped from 30 to 9 in just four hours, it was so cold out I just wanted to stay snuggled and not get up....
[10:07] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Tell me about it, I'm f[BLEEP]king living outside in a TENT under a TREE.
[10:07] <C'est_la_V> Haruka-san, I'm going to stick my butt in where it doesn't belong...
[10:07] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> "Nose."
[10:08] <C'est_la_V> That too.
[10:08] <C'est_la_V> I know you love Michiru-san... so what's all this about?
[10:08] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Man I don't NEED to give her a damn ring, I said this already!
[10:08] * C'est_la_V shakes her head "You're talking to the goddess of LOVE here."
[10:09] <C'est_la_V> I've seen you be SO kind to her... even when you're arguing there's love there, hidden.
[10:09] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> (looks away) What's your point.
[10:10] <C'est_la_V> Masaka... are you afraid... of what people might think?
[10:10] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Have you EVER known me to give a rat's ass about what people think
[10:11] <C'est_la_V> No... but I know what it's like to be shunned. How it gets to you after a while.
[10:11] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> The f[BLEEP]k would you know? You're bubbly friendly Aino Minako, the girl everyone loves! Genki-cheery sunshine in a bottle
[10:13] <C'est_la_V> *Now* I am, here with my family! You guys are all my family.... when I was in school I only had two really close friends... the more I got into being Sailor V, the further everyone else got away from me, because I was less involved in clubs, and they started treating me like a lone wolf...
[10:14] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Not the same thing at all. Do you know the s[BLEEP]t I still take EVERY time I go to the races? Many of the male racers HATE me, and there's a good portion of the fans that wouldn't mind if my car just wiped out and took me along with it.
[10:14] <C'est_la_V> I thought that doesn't bother you...
[10:16] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> As you said, it gets to you after a while. I have a THICKass skin, neko, but even *I* get tired of seeing the looks on people's faces, hearing what they say about me, and having to just suck it up and carry on. Because if I snap and punch somebody out, or tell them off, then I'm in the f[BLEEP]king wrong, and all the s[BLEEP]t they say will be true.
[10:16] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> I can handle it, but I'm just tired of it, you know? That's why I feel better at home, even here under this f[BLEEP]king tree.
[10:17] <C'est_la_V> Because home is where everyone cares about you
[10:17] * C'est_la_V leans on Haruka-san a bit
[10:17] <C'est_la_V> I think of you like an older broth... err, sister, heh
[10:17] * --=[ SpeedRcrX ]=-- messes up Neko's hair a little
[10:19] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> I dunno... I'm real happy where I am... I dunno why Michi wants to create a situation where things are gonna get real tough for us. I mean, Michi and me, we're pretty damn high profile... if we got married... for REAL... there'd be a f[BLEEP]king s[BLEEP]tstorm. Japan wouldn't have seen anything like it.
[10:19] <C'est_la_V> Is that what you're worried about??
[10:21] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> I don't mind giving the conventional wisdom the finger, but in this situation, the whole damn nation could give us the finger back. And I don't want to live having to justify myself every few seconds. Nor do I want to run off to Canada or some s[BLEEP]t just to be happy. Japan is my home.
[10:22] <C'est_la_V> The problem is... someone has to blaze that trail...
[10:23] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Ugh. I don't give a s[BLEEP]t about blazing a trail. I just wanna live like I've been living.
[10:24] <C'est_la_V> I never thought I'd see the day... Haruka-san... afraid of something.
[10:24] * --=[ SpeedRcrX ]=-- gets up roughtly
[10:24] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> I'm not afraid. You don't get it. You have it easy.
[10:25] * --=[ SpeedRcrX ]=-- stalks off, in the wrong direction
[10:25] * The Autoguns fire
[10:25] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> s[BLEEP]t! f[BLEEP]k! damn! crap! arrgh!
[10:25] * --=[ SpeedRcrX ]=-- runs for her life
[10:26] * C'est_la_V goes inside
[10:26] <C'est_la_V> Hotaru-chan, what are we going to do??
[10:26] <FireFly_9> I don't know...
