"Huh! Tobirama will probably have a thousand questions about that. He's been trying to refine a transformation technique."

Permalink

"He'll probably have more luck talking to the wizards, divine magic tends to be too intuitive to be easy to explain. But I'll see if I can think of someone who might try."

Permalink

"I doubt most of it would be cross-applicable anyways, but they'll certainly have fun figuring that out."

Permalink

"Mmhmm! Hopefully it won't take too long to get back in touch with my world."

Permalink

"With Tobirama on it, I'd imagine not."

Permalink

"Ertan will appreciate that."

Permalink

"Being able to go home is important."

Their stroll through the gardens seems to be drawing to a point where they've seen most things.

"Probably time to head over to Madara's... Speaking of home, mind if I pick up my granddaughter on the way?"

Permalink

"Of course not." His grin brightens a bit.

Permalink

"Cool!"

And over to his son's house, to pick up an exceptionally adorable infant and her baby supplies, the wood clone that had been watching her merging into the floor. Hashirama already had the wood clone make a note for his son explaining where he's taken little Tsunade, so they're good to go.

Permalink

He brightens even more at the baby herself. "May I hold her?"

Permalink

"Sure!" He transfers the baby. Carefully.

(She promptly starts trying to grab anything dangling off Raafi's outfit or hair.)

Permalink

He's careful too, but he seems to know what he's doing. She promptly ends up with the large wooden pendant hanging around his neck; this prompts more giggles.

Permalink

Baby is pretty sure wooden pendants are for gnawing on!

"Hold on, let me dig out one of her teething toys..." Hashirama says with a laugh.

Permalink

"Oh, it's fine, she's not hurting anything."

Permalink

"That's good!" And he starts leading the way. People they pass - there's more out and about now - nod and smile at the two men, though mostly at Hashirama.

Permalink

Raafi is pretty distracted by this adorable baby, but smiles back often enough.

Permalink

Hashirama mostly points out cool things about each building as they walk. He's a very energetic and thorough tour guide.

Permalink

That's enough to get Raafi's attention; he's interested in the aesthetic decisions that went into various buildings, particularly, but pleased to hear what Hashirama has to say in general, really, and not shy about complimenting his work or pointing out when something seems particularly inspired or clever.

Permalink

Eeeeee!

A lot of these buildings actually had non-Hashirama designers, especially the ones that aren't just traditional architecture. One of the Uchiha women is actually a keen architect, and designed that (very modernist) cluster over there as well as the Hokage Tower...

Permalink

It's all fascinating, regardless; the style is unlike anything he's seen at home - almost like a combination of gnomish and raptoran aesthetics, as unlikely of a combination as that is. Lovely work.

Permalink

"Thanks!"

And, soon enough, they're at the Uchiha district, which is a bit less experimental in style, keeping more to older architectural traditions. Hashirama is just as friendly with the people here, and leads Raafi to an understated building that blends into the rest.

Permalink

His demeanor turns more professional as they head in, though he still doesn't take his holy symbol back from the baby.

Permalink

"Hashirama. Raafi," Madara says, standing from his desk and setting aside a stack of paperwork. "This a social visit, or...?"

Permalink

"More or less; I wanted to see how Izuna is doing."

Permalink

His gaze flicks to Hashirama, then back to Raafi. "Physically, he's fine. Emotionally, I think he's been having trouble adjusting."
