A Decima summons Eldritch Ira to the Naruto-verse
« Previous Post
Permalink

She found the old tome behind a new wall in the family shrine. It'd been bricked in. Hidden

Of course Hisame can hardly resist such a delightful temptation.

She skims through the book, pauses, then reads more thoroughly, a grin growing on her face.

Maybe it's nonsense. Sacrifices and blood and dark chants all for show.

But it was hidden for a reason. And maybe it's something more.

Maybe her way out of this damn Hidden Village.

Decima is good at stealth, and good at killing, no matter how Konoha keeps trying to shackle her. Finding an 'innocent' no one will miss in the next twenty four hours isn't actually that hard.

The symbols are fun to paint - she's never been allowed to play with blood properly - and she lights the sacred incense, carefully recites the chants, maintains the proper atmosphere within the shrine's sanctuary - 

And tries to summon a god.

"Right!" And she'll walk em through the basics of meditation and sensing.

Permalink

Ey's restless, but ey proves a quick enough study at the theory, if not so great at the practical aspects.

Permalink

She'll place her hand over em's, channel her chakra in a warm burst through eir hands - "It feels like this."

Permalink

-Oh.

Oh.

"I- yes, I feel...something?"

Permalink

"That's chakra! It might feel a little different in your own core, though."

Decima's is warm and sharp and almost spicy, if spicy was a texture and a color.

Permalink

-And back to focusing and-

Yes, there. Ant's is a little cooler, more mint-flavoured, if ey had to put a name to it, and softer somehow, more curves than points.

Permalink

"That's great!"

Permalink

Ant grins happily. "That's really cool. So I have the thing right?"

Permalink

"Yeah. Next step is usually trying to move the center of feeling around your body - like a you're pushing gel in a bag into different places."

Permalink

And back to trying to follow instructions. The sensation is weird, and Ant keeps giggling at it, and occasionally whispering: "this is so cool".

Permalink

Their friendly neighbourhood abomination appears to be spectating.

Permalink

She'll very quickly move Ant onto basic exercises - sticking lightweight things to your skin, mostly.

Permalink

Sticking lightweight things to skin: surprisingly enjoyable.

It might just be that Ant is doing magic (in eir understanding), but they're grinning, even when they're not entirely successful.

Permalink

Teaching people: surprisingly fun!

If you do this you can cause the light stuff to shoot off or catch on fire (which is a common thing to do when learning). Decima's figured out if you do this other thing you can stiffen the leaf or paper, so if you're good at aiming you can shoot leaf knives at people! If you're good at timing they can be on fire leaf knives!

Permalink

Oh, this is so much fun. And Decima is awesome.

Permalink

She still hasn't figured out exploding leaf knives, sadly, but she bets she could do that with seals.

Permalink

Oooh!

Wait- has she mentioned seals before? What are seals?

Permalink

So there's two main types of magic writing - seals, and inscribed techniques. Seals store things. Sometimes 'things' can get kind of complicated or esoteric. Inscribed techniques are like normal techniques, but with writing instead of hand-signs.

Permalink

"Huh. I think magic in my world needs a wand or something. Ira wouldn't let me too near the wizards."

Permalink

"All we need is your own body and intent; writing does require a way to channel the chakra externally to your body - inks are often made with blood, for instance."

Permalink

"Huh. Does it have to be your own blood? Or does the blood of anyone with chakra work?"

Permalink

"Anyone's blood. I'm uncertain if some types work better than others."

Permalink

"We should do science and figure that out!"

Permalink

"Yes! And I wonder if we could carve a very large seal - filling the channels with blood would run into clotting problems, but a blood-derived ink..."

Permalink

"Do we have to do the carving? I'm pretty sure Ira can carve it for us..."
