Clothes make the Huntress [VLPS]
« on: March 31, 2017, 05:42:31 PM »
"I for one, am quite happy to be off the floor!" Sona says with a plop as she falls backwards on the bed in Team VLPS's new dorm room. Her arms spread out, she stares up at the ceiling of the room. "Definitely more spacious than the last place I was staying." She says. She kicks her legs straight up in the air, swinging them down and to her feet.

Sona has only two bags. A worn backpack with a faded denim color blue back panel and the rest of the bag in a tannish fabric. It's made of canvas and the padding in the straps has long been worn down. She sets this bag aside and opens her second bag. A large black rolling suitcase that looks almost new.

Vidalia sits quite in her bed playing one of her fighting games on her scroll. After yesterday's incident, she was feeling uncounterable with her team, although Patchy and Lynae didn't seem to be phased by Vidi killing someone, Sona apparently did. Hearing the faunus' remark about the door beds being better than the floor sounded odd. Why would someone sleep on the floor? It didn't occur to Vidalia that not everyone had the privilege to sleep on a bed. She stared at Sona for a moment then back down at the screen in front of her.

"I suppose they are okay," Vidi says softly. 

Vidalia didn't bother to do her hair in her basic ponytails rather, she put it in a tight bun with a big black bow at the top. Taking advantage of Shade's lenient school dress code Vidalia had brought most of her skirts and dresses from home, and many of her petticoats. It was rare to ever see her wear shorts or even pants unless it was to bed or the day particularly called for shorts. Unsure whether or not they would even go out today, she dressed in a black fluffy skirt with a dark green dress shirt with ruffled cuffs and a simple black bow around her neck. Her shoes were not her typical combat shoes, they were her black platform heels that are not ideally meant for running, still, that never stops Vidalia. In all, the way Vidi dresses herself people would think that she was a living doll.

Patchouli had packed light in terms of personal supplies, only bringing with her a handful of things from her many hobbies. These were neatly packed into a canvas tote bag slung over her right shoulder: A sketchbook with pencils of varying hardness and a number of erasers; some needles, thread, and yarn for both sewing and crochet; a high-end portable gaming system and its associated charger; and a few recent paperback novels. However, this was not to say she packed light in general. Only that school supplies took precedence.

Patchouli burst through the door, pushing a dolly with a large box that tended to force its way through anywhere it went. "When is Shade going to install a friggin elevator, honestly... catch up to the times, you lazy-" She grumbled under her breath. She stopped upon looking up and seeing the others in the room. "Oh, hi girls. Brought us some study materials... and a lamp." She claimed the bed on the far right side (from the perspective of the door) of the room, next to Vidalia's, and flopped down on it.

Patchouli was wearing an outfit identical to what she had worn the previous day. It was difficult and expensive to find clothes that could accommodate her quills, often needing to be custom tailored, so she didn't own much variety.

"Hello, Patchy. That's nice of you." Lynae said from her bed. She was sitting on her bed, with her legs crossed and eyes closed. A light blue glow was emanating from the girl extending out from her, as much as it would if she were in a fight. This was the technique her father taught her to train aura; concentrate it at 100% and flex it like a muscle.  With a sigh, the aura faded away and Lynae got up, stretching her actual muscles, now.

Lynae didn't have a lot of stuff to unpack, so she had that done already. She only had some sets of clothes, recently bought historical fighting manuals and spare dust and polish for Bolla Ballerino.

Lynae had thrown on some casual clothes; black jeans, boots and a blouse and she had her hair tied up in a ponytail. As she finished stretching she sat down and watched Vidalia play her game.

Sona begins to pull boxes from the case she's unpacking. First being a brand new scroll, still in the box, in the white on black color scheme. It's followed by an unopened standard issue dust weaponry maintenance kit. The kit is in a crate resembling a military ammo box, with a child lock latch. Next comes a small wooden box that can cheaply bought at a craft store. She pops it open quickly, revealing thread and needles before closing it again after affirming it's all in place. Then comes yet another box, this one a clearly labeled first aid kit. It's beaten up and clearly old, yet stuffed to the brim with supplies.

Boxes placed on the bed, she flips a stray lock of hair over her shoulder and goes back into the case. Clearly already at the bottom, she pulls a single black shirt, much like the tank top she has been wearing, and a pair of worn out jeans. She looks at her wardrobe skeptically with a flick of her ears, then places the two items inside.

She returns to the case and hesitates for a moment. She sighs visibly and goes back into the case. Out comes a few very strange outfits, including a maid outfit clearly used at a cafe in town, a barista uniform, a formal waitress's outfit not out of place behind a bar counter, and a dress cut far too short to be practical. Sona's lips are pursed and eyes are closed as she looks up from her handful of random outfits and turns to the wardrobe once again. The sheepishness on her face is no less apparent.

She gathers up her remaining affects quickly, socks and other such small things. Nothing else comes from the case as she closes it, still trying to avoid eye contact after her prior trip to the wardrobe.

Patchouli lay face down on the bed with a content, childlike smile just poking out the side. "Let me tell you, this is the best..." her muffled voice said. "A short time to relax after a long couple of days..." She knew there was more that needed to be done, but it felt good just to be moving into the dorms. She had come a long way for this privilege, and the bed felt all that much softer when stuffed with her team's accomplishments. After a few seconds of taking it all in, she rolled over onto her side to face her teammates. "So... classes start for real on Monday. We've got the rest of the afternoon and tomorrow until then. How do you girls plan to spend it?" She casually emphasized the you to imply that she had something in mind, but really her own plans were vague at best.

"If I'm being honest, I don't know. Maybe we could have a day out? Just the four of us!" Lynae suggested at the idea of a break. Maybe they could go for a meal or perhaps--"We could go shopping!" Lynae said, cutting off her own thoughts. "I could use some new clothes." Lynae reflected on how little sets of clothes she actually had.

The furrowed look at her meager possessions relaxes as conversation drags on. Sona places the boxes she removed from her case on the desk, looking at them with a debating glance. Rolling her shoulders she instead picks up her backpack lightly and places it the wardrobe as well. Clothes don't even fill a fourth of the width the furniture provides.

She pauses as she sees her own appearance in the door mirror. Her black tank top is stained with sand, dirt, and a few other questionable colors that bring back less than pleasant memories for the faunus. The brown skirt she wears is torn in places from rolling and dodging. In some cases, the cuts are even from her own weapons where they're mounted on her belt. Her brows furrow as she notes even her socks are frayed beyond repair. She turns and starts to check different angles in the mirror, though she already knew what she'd see.

"Shopping... Might be a good idea." she says through pursed lips. "At this point it might not even count as a frivolous spend... though I suppose I could just have the one..." She continues a bit quieter.

Vidalia stops paying attention to her game once the idea of going shopping is brought up. She really didn't need anything but it would be a bonding experience between them so for this time she is okay with joining them.

"I don't see why not?" Vidi says."This will be a good way to learn what the city is like right?"

Patchouli's eyes lit up as the team almost in unison agreed upon just what she had had in mind. In fact, eerily enough, they had stated all of her reasons, too; she needed to expand her wardrobe, she wanted to get to know the team better, and she needed to get a better understanding of this city as a whole. In her astonishment, Patchouli could only say, "Yes, let's do that!"

Sona pulls the tattered shirt over her head and starts to change into the only other normal outfit she has, the black t shirt and faded jeans.

"Are any of you from Vacuo City?" She asks, looking towards the others through the mirror in front of her. "That would help." She adds.

"Nah, ahm just ah smahll town girlie, pardner." Lynae says to Sona with a smile.

She had never really gotten out to the city that much. Even if she had the time, why would she want to? Well, there's a first time for everything, so why not have her first time in the city be with her friends?

Patchouli sighed with relief when Vidalia spoke up before her. It would be endlessly embarrassing to have to admit that she was from the city and still had no idea how to get around. "Sounds like we've got our guide then. Assuming that's okay with you, Vidi." She smiled gently, sincerely hoping that Vidalia would go along with it.
