All of the notes are prefaced with the disclaimer that if the recipient can't recall ever knowing him, or can't recall ever knowing him well enough for receiving a note from him to make sense, then they should please feel free to disregard it. And that, actually, they should feel free to disregard it in any case.

The notes are quite numerous; most are addressed to people who aren't currently on the island, but with luck, they'll be delivered if and when those people ever return. There's no way of knowing who will or won't ever come back, and he didn't want to leave anyone out.

As for the notes themselves, they are as follows.Collapse )

I can't believe how long it's been since I wrote. (I think I've said that a few times before, but... this time, I really can't believe it!)

Of course, one of the reasons I haven't written is that there hasn't been very much to write about. Everything's the same as always at home. I was limiting Nexus visits for a while so I could spend more time working together with my team and training, and then I lost my PINpoint for a couple of weeks... but really, that's about it...

More importantly, how are all of you? I hope everyone's doing well. How is your leg, Enzan? If you notice anything strange about it since healing, please let me know, since it may mean the bones didn't set properly...

(By the way, Mr. Greed, Isamu said okay.)

I feel bad there's nothing better to post, but here's something in case you want to do it... you fill in the blanks with things and then ask me the questions. (They've all been 'ask me things' ones lately... it's hard to imagine there's anything left people still want to know...)

1. What do you think of _____________ ?

2. When did you last ____________?

3. __________ or ___________ and why?

4. What did you ______________?

5. What's your favourite ______________?

6. How would you ______________?

7. Who would you most like to ________ ?

I'm doing a meme! I got it from Mr. Brody.

1) Go here to generate 10 random numbers between 1 and 100. DO THIS FIRST.

2) Then I will answer the corresponding questions from here.

I like this one better than the other questions one, at least for responding to, since you don't have to think of your own questions. ^^

Stadium concerts-- eardrum-destroying, packed with strange people, and occasionally the site of mass hysteria and/or trampling deaths-- had never really been his thing, it was true. But Hanatarou had loved his music for so long that, fatal moshing accidents or no, he couldn't possibly pass up the chance to see Kaa perform live.
(He even managed to get a decent and non-counterfeit ticket, and he didn't even have to pawn anything to afford it!)
(And also, surely Kaa's fans would be of a calmer calibre, far less disposed to acts of rowdy manslaughter.)

It's a month after Valentine's Day, and that means it's time for another holiday-- this one created entirely by the Japanese chocolate industry. White Day is when men give back to those ladies in their lives who saw fit to bestow Valentine chocolate upon them, presenting each wife, girlfriend, classmate or co-worker with a reciprocal gift of white chocolate, flowers, or some other delightful (and obligatory) item.

For his part-- partially due to a lack of clarity regarding the concept, and partially due to personal preference-- Hanatarou has chosen to celebrate by giving all of his Special People chocolate (a nine-piece assortment from Decadence du Chocolat, to be precise) now instead of last month! It's kind of a step up from last year, when he inadvertently implied that (according to Japanese standards) he was a woman; instead, he's implying that all of the recipients are women. Anyway, he was careful not to leave anyone out, so everyone got one (yes, even you). Mazel tov!

When people get stressed out, or generally don't want to deal with things, they might pick up a cigarette even if they stopped smoking years ago, or maybe go out and gamble an excessive amount of money, or pick up a midget tranny hooker and have fun times with VD. Isamu, likewise, was so high on sugar that it was a surprise he didn't buzz around like a hummingbird. (PS- don't give hummingbirds that red sugar liquid, it's bad for their nutrition!!)

Sucking on a sour key, and holding a brown paper bag of a lot more, he stepped slowly towards the place Hanatarou had said he'd bring that other guy. So they could meet. 'cause he's nice, or some shit, fuck I don't know. Isamu wasn't sure why he was going along with this, really. Because Hanatarou wanted it? It would certainly make him happy... And he wasn't doing it to be fair, either. Nor was there some tiny hope that he actually would like this guy... B... B-something. Whatever his name was.

Oh, there's Hanatarou! He's not dressed like a samurai today.

For some reason a lot of things were irritating me over the past couple of days, but ever since I was woken up after the drinking party for 3rd-seat Iemura's birthday on Friday, I've been fine! Maybe certain times of the year are just like that.

What Flower
Are You?

Apparently being a petunia means "you are a tried and trusted friend who will be there for your friends when they need you. But you have a tendency to be nervous about doing things that go against the norm."

I never thought about petunias that way before; they sound nice.

Does being pink actually make things taste better, or do things that taste good just happen to be pink, or is it my imagination?
I mean, if I imagine that strawberry milk were white, it doesn't seem like it would be as good. I suppose some of that might be due to expectations (even water tastes strange and unpleasant at first if you thought the cup had tea in it), though... That is, even if you knew beforehand that it was strawberry milk despite the fact that it wasn't pink, you might still have a subconscious belief that white milk shouldn't taste that way.
Well, there's no way to test it out, anyway. Even if there were, it probably wouldn't be a very good use of resources.

Brigham and Isamu, are you acquainted with one another?

The air quality always seems very good in the world where Bun's Pokemon day care is located, and the scenery is beautiful, but I don't think I could handle an extended stay. The only time I'm even there is to pick her up after I go off duty, but I've been challenged to at least three battles over the past week! I barely managed to escape last time.

Last year I thought Valentine's Day was about giving chocolate to your friends, but later I was told that it's actually only meant to be a day for girls to give people chocolate. Then today I was told that girls are supposed to eat the chocolate themselves rather than give it to anyone, and that glittery cards, stuffed toys, and other things are apparently involved as well... now I don't know what I should do. Maybe I'll just get everyone chocolate again after all.

As always, I hope everyone is doing well.

There's a silvery little houseplant on the narrow windowsill, a maple bonsai and a vase of snowdrops and purple statice on the dresser, a teddy bear wearing a black kimono on the quilt, and an empty food dish next to the bathroom door.

"Come in," Hanatarou says, with pleasant formality.
