Because crack never dies...
[To Ikkaku specifically, others if they really want to]

Shunsui - mischievous
Time: Just after ditching the captain's meeting
Location: Seireitei rooftop

*Stretches out on his back under the late morning sun, and tips his hat low over his eyes.*

THIS is what I need - not a captain's meeting and Byakuya's uptightness... *sighs* ... maybe he'll mellow when he's older.

Though I won't hold my breath.

*Drifts into light sleep, but keeps an ear out for Ikkaku.*

If he really wants to go to Hueco Mundo, and he knows I'm not against the idea, then he should know where to find me...

*after making a short trip back to his room to grab a nice bottle of sake, he finds his way to the rooftop where Kyouraku is napping*

I wonder how Kyouraku-taichou got into the habit of lounging on the rooftops? I guess at first it might have let him hide from that vice-captain of his, but she must know he comes up here by now, so why does he keep doing it?

*approaches Kyouraku, holding up the bottle of sake with a smile*

Do you mind if I join you, Kyouraky-taichou?

*Yaaaaawns and peeks out from under the hat. Thankfully, Ikkaku's shiny head eclipsed the sun behind it.*

Madarame, I had a feeling I'd see you around -

*Pushes himself up into a sitting position and pours himself a cup*

Not at all, not at all... *sips* ...so, you've brought your own? *gestures at the bottle in his hand*

Oh, yeah, I always like to be prepared.

Of course, he'd have his own sake with him, what was I thinking? How can I bribe him with something he already has? Guess I should still go with the original plan, though.

*sits down, rather uncomfortably, on the rooftop, wonders again why Kyouraku likes it up here, then offers his bottle of sake to Kyouraku*

Can I offer you some of this, Kyouraku-taichou? It's the finest I have, at the moment. Although, on a captain's salary I'm sure you're able to afford much better than this.

*tries to think of a smooth way to steer the conversation towards what he really came for, fails, and so goes for the direct approach*

Kyouraku-taichou, I came here to ask if you are still willing to help me get to the living world, are you?

((OOC: Gah, typo in my previous reply!))

*Reaches for Ikkaku's bottle and pours himself a bit*

Sharing your finest with me - then let me reciprocate! Please help yourself you probably don't drink as much as Matsumoto, so we won't run out, ne?

*sets his jug - which looks even bigger next to Ikkaku's reasonaly-sized bottle - between them*

*Takes a long sip while listening to Ikkaku's question*

Well it's a sticky situation, isn't it? Center 46 and Yama-jii giving us orders to stay away from the situation in Hueco Mundo, and consider Inoue-chan a traitor, our acting without the consent or knowledge of your captain...

...Even still, Center 46 doesn't always make the best choices, and Ukitake can't stand to lose another subordinate - and neither can Kuchiki stand to lose his vice-captain and sister, I suspect.

So yes, I'll help you get to the living world.

Thank you, Kyouraku-taichou. And no, I don't think it's possible for anyone to drink as much as Matsumoto. I swear those things are hollow.

*pours himself a cup from the jug, takes a sip, and then downs the rest of the cup*

I was right, his sake is much better than mine, but he's still being polite and drinking mine.

Thank you very much, Kyouraku-taichou. And don't let it bother you that Zaraki-taichou doesn't know; he wouldn't punish me for something like this, he'd just be upset that he couldn't go to fight in Hueco Mundo as well. And I'm not worried about Yamamoto-soutaichou or Center 46, we can deal with them once we're back.

*pours himself another cup of sake and tries to take a little more time in drinking this one*

Have you heard anything more from Ukitake-taichou about Rukia's phone call or the situation in Hueco Mundo?
6th-Aug-2007 08:21 pm (UTC)
No, I haven't heard anything more - and frankly, I'd like it if Ukitake didn't hear about our going to the Living world, and for what purpose - but from what I gather, she is alive and well, even though she's been captured. Hopefully she and Inoue-chan are the only captives, and you can find the others and team up.

*picks up the jug and hold it out to pour, with a big grin*

Why are you drinking like that? It's good to enjoy, but its purpose is to be drunk!

*refills his own cup*

Let's finish the sake first before we leave. I have my priorities.
7th-Aug-2007 01:02 am (UTC)
Ukitake-taichou does have enough to worry about already. And yeah, I hope Renji wasn't stupid enough to get himself captured as well. Not that Rukia-chan is stupid or anything.

*offers up his cup with a smile*

Sounds good to me.

*drains that cup quickly and then pours himself another, pausing to admire the view, which is quite nice, then downs that cupful as well*

You don't have to answer, but I'm curious, why do you come up to the rooftops, Kyouraku-taichou?
7th-Aug-2007 02:52 am (UTC)
*Smiles broadly and drinks with Ikkaku. They were never drinking buddies - who wants to hang out with an old guy who outranks you, anyway? - but he was pretty good company.*

That's funny, you're only the second person to ask why I come up here and I suspect Nanao-chan wouldn't want to hear my answer... it used to be, back in the old days, that I'd come here to take naps and drink relax, and no one thought to look up here.

But now, even though a handful of people know where I am and will come up here to find me... I guess I just like it up here.

*Finishes his cup and tucks it in his haori before standing up with a sigh.*

Shall we go then?

*is surprised to find that he's actually enjoying Kyouraku's company especially since he's so different from Ikkaku's normal drinking buddies*

Fair enough. I can understand just needing to get away sometimes. I wish there was somewhere that Fukutaichou couldn't find me.

*drinks the last bit of sake straight from the bottle and stands up as well*

Yes, I'm ready for some action.

(OOC: do we do a log? Should we skip the gate part and magically appear at the shouten?)

(OOC: My vote would be to magically appear at the shoten, but a log would probably make more sense.)
