[Oh hey, it's Aerith. No one's seen her for a few months, huh?

Though she just turned on the video, she already looks for a moment like she forgot about it. She's staring off at something in the distance that the viewfinder can't see, if there's anything there, anyway.

A moment passes and she glances back at her phone.]

Kel isn't here anymore. But Tetsuo is. It hasn't been that long, right?

[Someone would be right if they noticed she's acting even weirder than normal.]

Can someone tell me what happened while I was gone?

[After one inappropriately long pause--]

I made it back in time for my birthday.

[Behold, it's a pirate. A pirate that's significantly less blood-covered than the first time he tried to use the network, and look--he's even got the camera more or less appropriately centered. Progress.]

I'm lookin' for a job.

[There's only so long one can go without money, even if there are people who give free food to imPorts sometimes.]

I can do most things, though my best skills're as a swordsman, if you need a bodyguard or security or somethin' like that.

[Sure enough, there's three (three!!!) swords sheathed at his side. What kind of swordsman fights with three swords? Well, here's your chance to find out.]

Only thing I won't do is cut down people for whatever personal grudges you might have. You can sort out that kinda shit yourselves.

--Oh yeah, and I ain't joinin' anything officially; I've already got a crew to get back to, so. I'll work for you, but it's gonna be a temporary sort of thing. Got it?

This is Hood.

[ The sounds are unmistakable; the clinking of glasses, soft rock music, muted chatter. Hood's on a bar, be it for the booze or for the memories, he ain't telling. It's a little bit of both, really. At least in there he can pretend the crazy world he's been dumped into exists at all. As long as he doesn't walk out again there's nothing to worry, right? ]

Someone fucked up. [ There's a hint of irritation in his voice. ] They wanted a hero, they got me. I'm honored, really, but I sort of quit that life. [ Being a cop and being a hero aren't exactly the same, but that's as close as he's ever going to get. ]

I get it, though. No going back, at least not willingly. Fine. [ A pause; that whiskey isn't going to drink itself. ]

Just... you go your way, I go mine. Got it.


[ As if he would wait for an actual reply, pffft. ]

[ It's video time. And Sasaki is wearing a blue police uniform because he is kind of working, and on his face he is wearing Harry Potter glasses. On his desk there are chocolates, cookies and candy which he'll never eat, and there are even flower crowns; someone save this man from his fans who happen to be teenagers or old ladies. ]

Hello everyone, specially to the new arrivals. I'm Haise Sasaki. Things are probably really confusing right now, so if you have any questions, let me know. I'll try my best to answer, plus I've been here for two years. [ Sasaki is a police officer and he considers this an important part of his job. ] There are also some F.A.Q's laying around, though a bit outdated. [ he will send links to this and this ]

Anyway, I was thinking thanks to the Gala: I used to have dancing lessons long ago and - don't mock it - it was actually a lot of fun. I already have one recruit - Hi, Riku - so if anyone would like to try, why not? I'm good at Waltz, by the way. [ and he just remembered: ] Also, might as well ask, I feel like I've read most books out there, so if you have suggestions, let me know. I'm into psychological themes, but I've even read books on martial arts and those are also fun. I'm fine with most genres.

[ alright, the fun part is over! Now onto serious business ] Finally, and unrelated to the other two topics. I have... many issues with my powers. [ they aren't "power", exactly. They are biology. ] In my world, I'm not allowed to use them, only under extreme circumstances, and they aren't seen with a good light. Which is normal, I'm not complaining about that. [ they are what make Sasaki a monster, after all ] But in this place, a lot of things happen and we need to be prepared, and I was told that maybe I should start using my powers more since they are a part of me.

For that reason, I was wondering if anyone would like to train with me, using my kagune. I need to warn you, it's a violent weapon, very malleable, sturdy, sharp too, and it can pierce through most materials. If you think you can handle it, I really would like a sparring partner.

And that's all, thank you for listening.

[The first image you'll get to see on this particular video feed is pretty much a real detailed view of someone's eyes. They're way too close to the screen and you can almost see the individual flecks of deep brown when the image isn't blurred thanks to this guy moving more than a little bit. The individual responsible for such a sight is trying his damndest to figure out how the hell this thing works, how you can send messages or even videos on something that's very pointedly NOT shaped like a snail, and how you even know if it was working or not.

Eventually it seems like he's stopped caring, or decided that on sheer force of will alone that it's working. Because the feed pulls back and you can see this very 'good dog' expression on a very simple-looking man. A scar under his eye, and a rather ratty old straw hat perched atop his head.]

The food's really good here! And I wasn't even yelled at when I ate a lot, either, and I like that. [The crowd hadn't been the most fun, but who needed fun when there was food involved.]

An' yanno what? I don't like being away from my crew an' home, but if there's an adventure--Nihihi, then I guess I don't mind stayin' around! [And then that 'good dog' expression melts, as if exposed to heat very suddenly. A frown on his face.]

But there's so much land everywhere! And the ocean is so far away! There's too many buildings and I was told that there aren't any pirate ships here??


What's up with that??

[The feed begins with the sight of...part of a face? There’s clearly some kind of green hair, tan skin, an eye, and...blood?]

--Like this?

[Yeah, uh, definitely blood. In fact, as whoever the owner of the voice was speaking to adjusts the camera angle for him, there's...quite a lot more of it that becomes visible. His entire shirt front is soaked in it, but the poor waiter/bartender next to him seems a lot more distraught by this than he is. In fact, if it weren't for the fact that more was still clearly dripping through the tears in it, one could almost be forgiven for not immediately assuming the blood was his.]

So I just--talk into it and people hear me? [A tiny, wordless nod comes from the other man.]

Huh. Kinda like a Den Den Mushi, but with a picture...guess I will hang onto it then. Thanks for the info.

[And while he’s at it...he takes a moment to address the weird mirror box before he heads on out, since he’s got nothing else to trade for food (or drink).]

Oi! I'm missing a couple things:

[Things, people, the entire kingdom he was just in. Same diff.]

A rubber idiot wearing a straw hat, a shitty cook with a curly eyebrow, a long-nosed sniper--[He counts off on his fingers, as if reciting a list of groceries, rather than, you know, his crew, but much as he might be acting tough, there's a definite undercurrent of concern there]

A reindeer-person, a blue-haired girl and her pet duck, comes up about this high [he raises a hand to about waist height], and a red-haired girl, our navigator. If you've acquired any sudden debts lately, it's probably her.

If someone's seen them or can tell me how to get back to Alabasta Kingdom from here, I'll owe you one.

[He huffs, then, rests one hand on the hilt of one of his swords.]

--And if any of you morons is actually listening to this, you better tell me you're alive, or I'll kick your ass when I find you!

[That draws a small yelp from the bartender, and Zoro turns back to him, suddenly reminded of his presence]

Oi, how do I stop talking at the weird box...?
