Large Face Ask OneofTwo

Etude No. 3 [Video]

[The video turns on, and--well, some of you may remember this pale, porcelain face with its large black sunglasses and stoic expression. The 'Gear it was transmitted from suffered a short, watery demise in a lake a few minutes later.

There's something strange about the view you're being subjected to, though--some odd angle, maybe, tilted just slightly too low, and framed just a bit too obliquely, that suggests something isn't entirely right with this video post. It's almost though the face on the screen isn't looking, precisely, at the camera; for all that it's pointed in the correct general direction, the opaque, reflective lenses mirroring the light of the screen aren't quite aligned in a way that makes sense.

But never mind that.

Because this time the face actually says something instead of turning off the screen and chucking his 'Gear into the lake.

And damn, that is a thick accent.

Machi Side

Etude No. 2 [Open Action Log]

[Machi knew the dog was following him.

It had been since he'd dropped that ball... capsule... container... thing... he wasn't really sure what to call it now, but it had somehow contained a dog or called it to him and now it was following him.

The problem was, Machi was afraid of dogs.

Not petrified, exactly, but even small ones made him uneasy--too many stray dogs of varying sizes, too many close calls. This one was about medium sized, but it was rough and black and grey, with white claws and large teeth--larger than any dog Machi had ever seen, almost larger than those on the giant rats that ran in the grass.

What was wrong with this place?

He had tried to lose it on several occasions, but it always found him; had Machi been able to climb trees, he probably would have tried to escape it by doing so, but instead he was forced to evade it in other ways.

He wasn't okay with it, no, but over time the fear had slowly ebbed from actual near-terror to 'simply' being deeply unsettling--and as he approached the lights of what looked to be some sort of small town, it was almost eclipsed by the short wave of relief.

Machi Large Profile

Etude No. 1

[At first, all that can be heard is the muted sound of someone fumbling over keys, shuffling and clicking and, at one point, a brief impact. Then the screen comes on, as though by accident, revealing a pale child's face, stoic and unmoving, and guarded in part by a pair of black, reflective sunglasses. The video cuts off briefly before reactivating, but then ends again--it's possible that this last time it is deliberate. The audio is still on, however, and the sound of his hands moving over the case can still be heard for a few seconds. Then it's replaced by footsteps, crunching steadily first over leaves, and then over the dirt and gravel on the road. Then the faint shuff of walking on grass. Eventually, however, this too stops, and there are a few seconds of silence.

Then, suddenly, a rush of air, and a loud... splash?

Yep. That's right, folks. Machi Tobaye has thrown his Gear right into the water.
