Misfortune: Hey, Nanami, do you still use this? Misfortune: Well, I'm at this big city up north named Ys, apparently my granddads are the lords of the place. Misfortune: also my aunt told me to actually go out and enjoy the festival right now Misfortune: but i also don't know anyone here. Misfortune: PLEASE help! Would you believe that all of that took a number of minutes for Omen to type out? Yes, it did. She was otherwise by her lonesome in a bustling city of crystal. Which...
...Compared to the last vaguely crystalline place she had been to, was a major improvement. It was odd. "...Wasn't one of the things Fuu posted up on the boards taking a nice photograph?" She distinctly recalled that--it had a section on what to do, and what not to do...
And she recalled Bu being a bit salty at her being included on what not to do.
"...Maybe I can ask Nanami if she comes." Omen decided, hopping off of her bench as her tail stowed away the D-Terminal. It was a miracle how sturdy these things were, and that it still even worked. Oh!
...What if...she tried taking a selfie?
That was essentially the chain of events that led to Omen trying in vain to take a nice selfie with a tail that got shaky on occasion. And you know what? That lasted for a WHILE. Which led to one frustrated looking Wispmon on the streets of the Craft District! Oh nO!

Nanami_Hanabana: Omen! It's okay! I use this all the time! Just not IC Nanami_Hanabana: But I'll be right over, okay! I've always wanted to go to a festival! hare_E_p00p_720pp: thats cuz ur both lonely losers
...And a little bit later...
username: They're fighting rn. But we're on our way. Say hi 2 your family for us. "OOOOOOOOOOOOOMEEEEEEEEEEEEEN!!!!" Soon enough, a girl's voice was hollering through the streets. Was she being a bother to the rest of the city? Probably, but this place was pretty big and crowded, and she had a friend to find!
"H-hey! Don't start yellin' when I'm on your shoulder, Stupid Nanami!" The Lopmon on her shoulder complained, clutching her large ears in her arms.
"Not until we find O-..." She paused mid-sentence as she spotted a familiar hooded figure that had substantially fewer limbs than her peers. "Omen!" And the little girl made a mad dash for the Wispmon, nearly bumping into a plethora of humans and Digimon alike. The Lopmon she was ferrying around had to hold on for dear life, lest she get shaken off. "Excuse me... sorry... coming through... sorry,...hi Omen!" She said while panting, a bright grin across her face.
"'Sup, Lil' Red?" Mocha greeted, giving a little wave as well. Cream and Mu-kun weren't present, though.

The D-Terminal made a few notifications as Nanami received the message. Wow! "...I guess Ys has wifi." Was Omen's ONLY conclusion as to why this was so fast outside of conveniences for the sake of the plot. Well! All that was left to do was wait for faithful friends. And also a ninja. Maybe?
The wait was simply that. Omen sent some messages over to her family--namely her mom and her aunts. Misfortune: i'm gonna win the photo contest with one of my friends, watch Monad: That's cool. Have fun! Queen: Bold. Have fun. Kabutomushi: OVER MY DEAD FUCKING BODY- Kabutomushi: Wait, you have friends? Cool. Have fun! Omen's ears perked up as she heard a familiar voice yell her name out. "I'm here!" She called out, trying to peer through the crowds for a girl with pink hair. Or Terriermon-led twins. Or a bird, but! No cigar. Luckily for Omen, however, Nanami had seen her, and had made a mad dash for her! She hopped up in joy!
"Hi, Nanami! Hi, Mocha!" She seemed happy to see them both. Especially safe and sound for a change. "Did you guys have a safe trip here? Apparently I'm a princess around these parts!" There was a notable pause.
"I don't know how I feel about that. But anyways! Wanna win a contest with me?"
Post by Nanami Hanabana on Apr 6, 2021 2:52:25 GMT
"A princess? That sounds nice!" Nanami chuckled... before her eyes widened. "Wait, a princess!? That sounds really cool!!" She lifted the Wispmon up in joy. "And you're the princess of such a pretty city, too!" She set her back down while letting out a giggle. "But I'm still gonna call you Omen, okay? 'Cause Omen is Omen!"
"Then it looks like we've got a nice little bit of fun on our hands, then!" Mocha stated with a mischievous smirk. "We can wreck all kinds of shit while partying if we've got royalty with us! It's nothin' compared to havin' a twin sister, but nice job, havin' a family and shit, Hood!"
"No trashing Omen's city!" Nanami chastised real quick before turning back to Omen. "But Mocha's right about it being nice that you got to meet even more of your family! And they're even royalty!" She laughed before adding, "It's funny, 'cause when I was really young, I wished that I was a princess! And that my birth dad was a king and that one day he was gonna visit me whenever I got healthy enough to be a princess! And mom and me were gonna live with him in a big castle!" The pink-haired girl looked somber for just a moment before shaking her head. Her face was flushed with a little bit of embarrassment, too. "Oh, but mom married Eiichiro, and he was like, the best step-father ever, so everything's fine now!"
Mocha pinched the girl's cheek and groaned, "Hey hey hey, stop gettin' all gloomy, would ya?" Then to Omen she asked. "So what kinda contest we talkin' about here? And what's the big prize? Do we get to be king for a day? 'Cuz I think I could work with that!"
"No more pinching!" Nanami complained, pushing the Lopmon to the point where she almost shoved her right off of Nanami's shoulder. "And of course we'll help you win this contest! Just tell us what he have to do!"

Was being a princess something that was just really special in the Human World? Omen only tilted her head for a moment before the warm rookie was LIFTED by one whole Nanami. It was very difficult for the Wispmon to emote, but...
She was smiling. That was a rarity. "Don't wreck the city, I hear it literally kicks out people who are mean to it!" Omen clarified quickly as she was set down. She wasn't chastising Mocha or anything, she was legitimately just pointing something out. "So, I guess if you can goad someone into a fight and don't throw the first blow you could watch them get tossed out..." She shook her head. No!
Omen had been about to extrapolate a bit on her family--but she was given pause as Nanami brieeefly recounted something about herself. "Well...I can't promise living in a castle. But I'll see how many strings I can pull to let you visit there. Besides! You're as much a princess as me." No she wasn't, Omen, what the fuck?
"So! The contest is a photography contest--tourists need to take pictures with the scenery of the city in the back. The prize...I dunno what the prize is, but I know we get paid if we submit photos. Just one per week, though. So, we need to find a place that looks cool and take a picture together!"
It sounded really simple, but when one looked out towards the crowd? Finding that place...may be tough. Maybe.
Post by Nanami Hanabana on Apr 6, 2021 3:26:33 GMT
"Heh. I'll keep that in mind!" Mocha said with a wide grin. She could provoke someone AND screw them over all at once? Talk about a nice night out in the town! Then again... "But I guess a town this strict wouldn't be able to contain my awesome for very long!" Mocha admitted, in her own way. After all, why should she conform to some city with stuffy rules with harsh penalties like that? It's not like there weren't a wide variety of other places in the Digital World out there, after all!
And as for Omen's princess compliment? Well, Nanami could only blush and smile as what looked like tears were about to form from her eyes. But they never came. Instead Nanami just kept smiling with rosy cheeks and said, "You're a really good friend, Omen!"
And as Omen explained the details of their job, Mocha let out a groan. "Wait... so we just have to do their tourism for them? That's both incredibly smart and... still kinda pisses me off." She thought about it for a second. "But if we're just being paid to take photos and shit, can't just anywhere do? Let's just go somewhere popular, snap a photo of us smiling or something, and make a quick bit or two!"
"Mocha! We have to help Omen WIN the contest!" Nanami chided. "So we have to take a photo of some place really, really special!"
"Then why don't we go snap a photo over at Omen's place?" Mocha asked like it was the most obvious thing in the world. "Castles are fancy and shit, right?"
Post by Omen, Chaddest of Chads on Apr 6, 2021 3:33:55 GMT
"Well, it might not. It really depends on how you behave." Omen nodded once more. She was admittedly hoping Nanami would be able to be a guiding force to prevent Mocha from exercising her right to party on the Ancient Capital. She was at least watching Nanami's reaction--apparently, what she had said was quite moving.
Considering Nanami had said something just as moving. "...Thank you. That means a lot to me--I consider you to be one of my closest friends. If not, my best friend." She did fit the bill. In a lot of ways.
"It's neat--it gives a very strong incentive for tourism as well as provides a return of sorts in the form of payment. But there's a start to this, sort of. Someplace popular could work. But...If it's scenery in the background, why don't we try finding something cool here? Like the kiosks or a rooftop? I think Aunt Fuu actually told me specifically to not use the castle."
Post by Nanami Hanabana on Apr 6, 2021 3:55:09 GMT
Well... Mocha wouldn't likely go crazy partying just yet. She had money to earn, or something. And Mocha had already gotten arrested once while up here in the North. And stuck with the damned bird of all people. And having connections with royalty probably wasn't going to cut it if said royalty got involved in Mocha's shenanigans as well, so... She'd have to save her partying for another day!
"I feel the same!" Nanami said, chuckling with glee while kneeling down to put her hand on Omen's tail. This was basically holding hands, right?
Meanwhile, Mocha looked back between the two of them and cleared her throat. "But let's get one thing straight. Being partners is like, ultra-best-friend territory, so don't go thinking you're so special, got it?"
"Hmm... I wonder..." Nanami pondered, looking upwards thoughtfully. It took her a bit to think about it, and then she turned back to the Digimon besides her. "Nope! It's about the same! Omen, Mocha, Cream, Mu-kun! I love you all! And Mae, and Kazumi, and Vemmon, and Dorururumon, and Hudiemon, and Ryuji, and Yoshihiro-" Mocha spat onto the ground. "...and Magnus, and Katherine, and Akemi, and Haru, and Kaya, and Hawkeye, and Yuji, and Kazuo... I've got a whole bunch of friends that I've been able to meet!"
"And while you're busy reading off your friends list, how about we find a place worth taking a photo of, shall we?" She grumbled when Omen said the castle was off-limits. "...Any chance we can just do the castle, anyway?" Welp, regardless, it was best to have a backup place. No point in taking just one photo, after all! It was probably better to take a photo in multiple places and decide on which one looked the best! "...So what's the tallest place this city's got?" Somewhere high up sounded like a good start. "Even if the view sucks, we could spot a place easier up high rather than down here."
Post by Omen, Chaddest of Chads on Apr 6, 2021 4:11:34 GMT
Omen could probably, potentially help with connections if Mocha got into trouble so it could go okay. But! Screw that. Omen stared at Nanami holding the clawed hand of Omen's tail, and...The Wispmon blushed.
That was...a first. But she was okay with this. The tail turned, and gently grasped at Nanami's hand. It was an attempt, and she was trying. Mocha managed to actually snap her out of spacing out, though. "Well, of course I'm not that special. I'm just me. You're special, though."
The Wispmon turned her head to Nanami and tilted it, before she listened to many names. "Well, it's nice you love my mom, too. She thinks highly of you. I don't think I have that many friends, but...The ones I have? As long as you're there? I think they're all I really need." Did...They know that? That Mae was her mother? Well, they did now.
"What if. We use the castle in the background." Omen looked over to the tallest nearby building, a three story department store that...seemed to hold a huuuuge variety of stuff. Like that Weird Al song about a Hardware Store.
"The roof there? There's a lot to see from there, I think. And a few balconies too!"
Post by Nanami Hanabana on Apr 6, 2021 4:56:39 GMT
"Oh yeah, you ain't nothin special, your highness!" Mocha stated in a mocking tone, rolling her eyes at the Wispmon. Was... that her version of a compliment? Well... maybe. But maybe she was just trying to be condescending. After all, negging royalty had to be some kind of power play, right?
Nanami stuck her tongue out at her Lopmon partner, but nearly bit her tongue once Omen dropped that particular bombshell. She went pale for a second and turned to Omen in shock. "Wait a minute... Kazumi is your mother!? But... I guess maybe those Xros generals are something special after all... Does that mean Magnus can have a Digimon baby, too?"
"Or maybe Princess Hood's mom is that cat that smells just like her, just... less... smoky..." Mocha interjected. Recognition met Nanami's eyes as she nodded a couple of times.
"I see, I see... Mae was already a superhero... So I guess it makes since that she's a princess, too..." How that made sense? Well... Only Nanami seemed to know. "But any friends I have are your friends too, so you don't have to worry! 'Cause I don't think there's a person in either world that wouldn't wanna be friends with you! You're cute and fuzzy, and you're really good at impersonating people, and you're a princess now, and you give the bestest hugs even if you don't have arms! So even one day, when I-" Her voice suddenly choked up. She would normally never have a problem saying it, but for some reason, she felt like she would regret it if she finished her sentence. "So... you... just try and make a buncha friends whenever I'm not around to hang out with you, okay?"
But back to the task at hand! "Hmm... I think I can probably... yeah I can definitely do it!" Mocha grinned and turned to Nanami. "Nanami! Let's get up there really quick!" The pair nodded to each other as Nanami pulled out her Digivice and a light shone through, enveloping the Lopmon, and a second later, a Lekismon took her place. "We're going up there in a single bound! All aboard the Mocha Coaster" Mocha grabbed a hold of Nanami, who grabbed onto Omen, and she soared up high, enough to land on the rooftop and freak out a few other random citizens, Nanami giggling and letting out a scream of joy all the while.
Yeah, they could have just taken an elevator or stairs or something, but contest or not, this was still a festival, right? Why not go a little crazy and have some fun?
Post by Omen, Chaddest of Chads on Apr 6, 2021 5:45:06 GMT
"Well, no! ...Despite being a princess, I don't really hold any power. I just have a cool title and a fluffy grandpa." Omen shook her head, though. She had to explain things here! "I don't know what a Kazumi or a Magnus are. But! Mocha's got the right of it. Mae's my mother, yes. And she's considered a hero by many. But she's not a princess. She -did- get a princess to move in with her--my other mom, a pink Renamon named Hasenya."
She nodded sagely, as though this made PERFECT sense. Of course, the resulting counter by Nanami also seemed to make sense. Even if it involved calling Yoshihiro a friend. Gross. "That's a good way of accumulating friends--pooling them up with your best friend."
...Even one day when she what, though? Omen blinked a few times in evident confusion as Nanami choked on her own words. "...Okay. I promise. But you have to try too, okay? Let's make a lot of friends so we can eventually pool more together. Plus? ...You give the best hugs."
...At least Nanami could actually give people hugs.
Omen had been about to propose heading into the store and heading up, but Mocha at least had a very creative solution to this. Something she found that she could legitimately respect. "Oh, okay!" So, Nanami grabbed her. Mocha grabbed Nanami. And up they went! They soared high enough to make it to the rooftop, with only a few citizens yelling out various things!
"Ooooooh shit! A rabbit!" "CONFOUND THEM LUNAMONS, TRYNA JUMP ALLOVER THE PLACE!"
"Fuck my life."
Those were but an assortment. And no, you've never seen the author use these text colors before! Once there, and once she was assumedly properly set down, Omen would take out her D-Terminal and set about seeing how good of a picture she could take. It was a very delicate process--No, it wasn't. "...This view's pretty cool--It kind of reminds me of the top of the biggest tree in the Server Woods. Except there's...so much crystal from here..."
Post by Nanami Hanabana on Apr 6, 2021 19:44:23 GMT
"It's okay! Even if it's only a title, you've got me, and Mocha, and Cream, and Mu-kun, and-"
"Hey, don't start listing off everyone you know again, Stupid Nanami!" Mocha interjected. After all Nanami can only cheese the word count so many times! "'Sides, if I'm your friend, that's already like, being the princess of like, fifty kingdoms, so you're really better off than some 'fluffy grandpa' of yours!" The Lekismon reached down to ruffle the fur on the Wispmon's head, followed by a thumbs-up gesture. And completely ignoring the complaints of the plebian non-Mochafolk, especially that one random voice that mistook her for a Lunamon. Filthy rabbit-racists.
And as for Omen's promise? "Of course!" Nanami was grinning from ear-to-ear. "We'll make the most friends out of anybody in the Digital World, then become friends with all of their friends too, and then all of their friends, too! So that way, no one'll ever be lonely ever again!"
"Hey, let's worry about takin' a photo first, then you can worry about making friends with an entire planet!" Mocha grumbled, looking around. "Hmm... This is pretty high up, but... I think I could go even higher!" And with a whoop of excitement she launched herself from the rooftop directly straight up into the air, as high up as she possibly could. It was hard to tell what she was doing so high up, but it looked like she was taking selfies while flipping around through the air. When she came back down on the rooftop, she stared at her phone's screen, grumbled... "Hmm... I'll try this angle next!" Then she jumped back into the air again.
Nanami smiled as she watched her partner have her little fun before turning back to her best friend. "Let's not lose to Mocha, Omen! Let's take a photo of our own!"
Post by Omen, Chaddest of Chads on Apr 6, 2021 22:20:45 GMT
While Omen distinctly disagreed that Mocha was better than her grandfather, she could see that the Lekismon...seemed to have meant well? Besides, there wasn't even any need to cheese the word count when it was apparently just 500 words.
The Wispmon could tell she said a good just now, though. Even if it sounded pretty crazy to her. Imagine making all of the friends so nobody could be lonely again. That felt like such an impossibility, right? Yet when said by somebody like Nanami, it really didn't seem that much of a stretch, that much of something that wasn't...you know. Possible.
But also, yes. They did need to take a photo first. "Careful not to go too high that you get yourself hurt, Mocha!" Omen called out as the rambunctious rabbit took a real big leap! Into the air. "...If the photos aren't blurry, I'll be kind of impressed." Very impressed.
As Nanami made that declaration, however, Omen raised up her D-Terminal in a very specific angle before clicking a button on it, the camera snapping a picture of her and Nanami! Hopefully they were looking at it the right way. Omen was looking right at the camera, at least. "Like this, right?" She flipped the Terminal over to see what sort of bullshit they had produced for a first shot.
Post by Nanami Hanabana on Apr 7, 2021 2:21:12 GMT
"Like that'll ever happen!" Mocha ignored Omen's warning in between big leaps. She... seemed to be having a lot of fun at the moment. And she didn't seem to be insulting anyone, either. Go figure.
Meanwhile Nanami knelt down to be on Omen's level just to make snapping a photo just a bit easier. She gave a bright, rosy-cheeked grin as she placed on hand on Omen's far shoulder and help up a peace sign with her other hand, because she was gangsta like that. She leaned in so her cheeks were nearly rubbing against Omen's fuzzy face. She chuckled as she said, "Isn't it funny how you always wanna blink whenever a camera's in your face?"
She leaned over to take a look at the photo. It came out quite well, all things considered. "It looks good!" Nanami praised, as the sheltered teenage girl was totally an expert in photography. "Oh, but if we're taking pictures, we have to take more than one! We have to take some silly photos where we make funny faces, too!" She chuckled mischievously for a bit, and she couldn't hide her goofy smile. It was clear she had something planned.
It was Nanami's turn to take a photo now! "Okay, Omen! So just keep staring at the camera and make the silliest face you can make, okay?" She held out her D-Terminal as far as she could, chuckling all the while. And then she turned her head and kissed the Wispmon right on the cheek, snapping the photo at the same time. She couldn't wait to see how that photo turned out!
Meanwhile, Mocha touched back down to the rooftop, a little bit out of breath. "Yo, check out the pics I took!" She proclaimed excitedly, holding up a phone. "I did a whole bunch of angles and I even did this widescreen one and... did I miss something?"
Post by Omen, Chaddest of Chads on Apr 7, 2021 3:03:00 GMT
She'll be fine. That much was something Omen figured out. For the moment, the sick airtime rabbit was all by her lonesome in sick airtime hell. Or heaven. Who knows? Mocha was probably having an amazing time up there.
Nanami stooping down to Omen's level made snapping a photo all the easier, and what had resulted was a picture of two friends (one lacking conventional limbs!) enjoying themselves with the otherworldly scenery of Ys framing the background. Omen was even smiling. "I...Don't know. Maybe you just expect the flash of most cameras? I mean, I know I do..." But Omen was not a human.
It was different for her, kind of. But still similar enough to warrant commentary. Omen's smile persisted as Nanami noted that the photo had actually come out quite good! Even if she was lacking in expertise on photography. Truth be told? So did Omen! She legitimately only had schooling from a Rasielmon under her belt.
She handed the D-Teminal over to Nanami, and tilted her head briefly on being told to make a silly face. As she pondered on how she could try being silly...Nanami kissed her on the cheek. This prompted an expression of legitimate surprise as the photo had been snapped! The Wispmon was also a lot warmer, and as Mocha touched down and asked what happened...uh.
Omen did not have words. BUT! Nanami got a photo, hooray!
