What: There's nothing more dangerous than a boy with charm. Or a bowl of mind-controlling candy, whichever comes first.
Warnings: N/A as yet.
Style: Violent.
Status: Open.

The appearance of anything unexpected on board, especially given that Sasuke left the Nav trapped, was alarming enough on its own. Theoretically being docked might have made it easier -- maybe he should have trapped the entire ship to make sure no one could get on or off, though -- and he might have been more inclined to ignore them if not for one thing.

He kind of wanted to eat them.

Given his lifelong and solid dislike of sweets, that alone was enough to make Sasuke eye the brightly-coloured candy balefully where he'd spotted it, pacing the deck for a insomniac midnight stroll before dawn of the fourteenth.

OPEN FOR THREADJACK

So Sakura likes sweets. Candies that suddenly appear on a ship is cause for caution though. On the morning of the fourteenth, she's holding her own bowl as she wanders the deck of the 'Murderess' (still charming) trying to decide if she wants to eat them or not. She's leaning towards just trying one though. Maybe someone decided to be nice.

She's digging through the bowl trying to find a heart with a cute enough saying on it, some of them were downright strange. 'Touch me' makes her quickly shove the candy to the bottom of the bowl for whatever reason. Probably because her cheeks have turned a little pink. She finds a nice 'hug me' and decides this one is good enough, about to pop it in her mouth...

It's only a stroke of luck for the both of them that she stops, lowering her hand and looking up at Sasuke. "Weird?" They were just candy. It was weird they suddenly showed up but they looked innocent enough.

She likes sweets so the urge to eat them isn't entirely disingenuous. Bringing the little heart up to her face, she studies it closely. Then she looks down at the rest of them.

"Well, some of the words written on here are... strange," she admits. After a moment, she jumps up to the rigging next to Sasuke and lowers herself into a sitting position. She thinks to offer him one but his attitude towards the candy wasn't promising. "You probably don't want one, do you?"
slugly: (annoyed; lord give me strength)

ITS YOUR PARTY

[personal profile] slugly 2014-02-14 11:13 pm (UTC)(link)
That explained why he never accepted all the sweets girls made for him when they were younger. She pulls the bowl back to her own lap, setting it there with her hands cupped around it.

"I heard it was Valentines Day," this time thing was difficult to get used to but she is... slowly. It had been October back home, back at their world. "Maybe someone decided to do it for the holiday."

And now, she's going to pick up a piece of candy and put it in her mouth, biting into the sugar. Turning to him, she smiles. "See? It's fine. Even if you don't like them, there's nothing to--"

Wh-Whats with this sudden urge? To play with Sasuke's hair? She had these feelings before, it's true, back when she was a genin and his hair was getting long, in dire need of a haircut. But not in a very long time. Why were they suddenly surging up?! Her hands grip the bowl more tightly and it cracks a little with the pressure while she grinds her teeth.
slugly: was this filler i'm laughing (derp; don't know if mad or smirking)

[personal profile] slugly 2014-02-15 09:02 pm (UTC)(link)
The problem is she's not touching Sasuke's hair yet, that's what. She fights it bravely because if there's one thing Sakura has it's willpower and fighting spirit. Sasuke would not react positively to her suddenly running her fingers through his bangs and scratching at his scalp. In fact, she pictures it in her head and she almost expects a chidori through the head or equivalent.

They've been down that road and Kakashi or Naruto aren't near to stop it.

"Nothing," she grinds out. "The candies... they have a bad aftertaste. Don't eat them, no matter what." She thinks she's going to be sick but she's afraid if she moves her hands will stray towards him and ultimately into his hair. So she just sits like a statue in her spot, clutching the bowl, and trying to think of a way out of this.
slugly: (happy; AHAHA SHUT UP)

[personal profile] slugly 2014-02-16 03:43 am (UTC)(link)
She doesn't see it, too busy controlling urges. And not the usual violent, punchy kind.

Poison she could handle. Poison she was good at. She could figure out an antidote if given the chance and cure herself and anybody else. Mind-control? Not so much. Was she being mind-controlled with candy? She has the capacity to think how stupid despite it gettin the better of her.

And while she had beaten Ino's jutsu during the Chuunin exams with the appearance of her inner self, somehow she doesn't think that was going to work here. Her willpower was doing a decent enough job though.

The poor bowl is the only collateral damage for now.

Sakura just laughs nervously and wishes the sea breeze didn't blow through his bangs so enticingly.

forthevillage: (why?)

[personal profile] forthevillage 2014-02-15 09:55 am (UTC)(link)
"Do not eat them."

Itachi appears suddenly, as he has a tendency to do. The bowl of candy in her hands is being given the most serious of looks, as though it is more of a weapon of mass destruction than simply a collection of sweets.

His hands are behind his back, one grabbing the wrist of the other tightly as his eyes remain fixated on the bowl. The draw for him is positively terrible, and he considers himself fortunate to have been taught restraint. This, at least, he can fight. His mind is still his own, and he's determined not to give into anything else if he can help it. Even if it's just a matter of wanting candy really badly.

Of course others would simply pick them up and carry them around. How could they not?
slugly: (serious; shut your whore mouth)

[personal profile] slugly 2014-02-15 09:02 pm (UTC)(link)
Sakura yelps at his sudden appearance and the candy bounces along the deck after being dropped. It's probably still edible but she doesn't want to risk it. Not sanitary.

Once she gets a good look, she goes wide-eyed. "You're... Uchiha Itachi." He's... smaller than she remembers and he doesn't have a cloak on. He looks like a child, but she remembers Sasuke saying Itachi was his older brother. She also remembers Naruto mentioning a 'truth' about Itachi.

What that truth is yet remains to be seen.

Despite that, she's on guard and moving a foot back to angle her body in a subtle defense. "Why shouldn't I eat them?" she's at least civil, even if her eyes are hard and watchful.
forthevillage: (who i stand behind)

[personal profile] forthevillage 2014-02-15 11:13 pm (UTC)(link)
His eyes follow the candy as pieces skid along the floor. That wouldn't stop him from scooping some up if he wasn't holding himself back the way he is. They remain there as he answers her.

"My brother didn't tell you I was here?" That's Sasuke's prerogative, and it doesn't matter much to Itachi. Perhaps he'd assumed they'd run into him anyway. Her reaction isn't unexpected, but he gives it little regard. He's hardly a threat to her and she'll realize that soon enough.

"Nothing that has to force you to want to devour it can be safe. I would not so much as touch one."
slugly: (misc; WRINGS HANDS)

[personal profile] slugly 2014-02-16 03:43 am (UTC)(link)
"He did," she says slowly, still wondering why in the world he's so small. What Sasuke failed to mention was his brother's age. He couldn't be more than thirteen. That wasn't normal. The only good thing about it is she's starting to figure out this place out.

It was weird, that's what she's figuring out.

He's not as intimidating when Sakura has a few inches on him. However, this is still the person who massacred the Uchiha so she can't drop her guard. "He didn't say you were so..." Short, she wants to say. "Young." For some reason, the candy isn't as important as a young Uchiha Itachi and she's lost all interest in it. She won't eat them for now.

"Right." Except nobody is forcing her to eat them, she just has a sweet tooth. "So, I take it you came here from a vastly different point in time."
forthevillage: (what do you want)

[personal profile] forthevillage 2014-02-16 07:19 am (UTC)(link)
That was more plausible, Sasuke just not mentioning his age. He nods, finally lifting his eyes from the sweets with some difficulty. "It is not implausible here, being brought from different points in time. It's good that the three of you come from ones that aren't so far apart."

He gets a better look at her, curious about Sasuke's teammates and finding it a good distraction from the unreasonable draw of the candy. "I had just left the village when I was brought here." Just killed his own clan, on other words, if she was at all familiar with his history. "Sasuke has... filled me in on some things. Any reaction you have to my presence is justified."
slugly: yin (serious; stares)

[personal profile] slugly 2014-02-16 06:05 pm (UTC)(link)
Not implausible at all if Uchiha Itachi is standing here and only reaches her shoulders.

He doesn't need to explain himself, Sakura fills in the blanks. Her eyes narrow a little as she listens. So Sasuke filled Itachi in, Naruto was clued in, yet Sakura was as in the dark as she's always been. She doesn't even remember she's holding a bowl of candy that was supposed to look delectable when she's so focused on the older Uchiha brother.

Did he actually do it? What else could make Sasuke suddenly so protective of his own brother? He made sure that Naruto and Sakura knew not to touch a hair on his head. She didn't think Naruto would, but Sakura had a lot of questions and a lot of pent up frustration.

Was it really justified? "You've hurt Sasuke-kun so much and you've been a threat to Naruto when you're older. I can't be angry at you for that yet, seeing as how you haven't done them, but I get the feeling I don't have the whole picture when it comes to you and Sasuke-kun. When it comes to the Uchiha."
forthevillage: (in the dark)

[personal profile] forthevillage 2014-02-16 09:07 pm (UTC)(link)
"Perhaps you don't." Frankly, he doesn't want anyone knowing that didn't need to, so he leaves it at that. Sasuke is free to share the information with anyone he wants to, but he clearly hadn't told this girl yet. "Nor do I have the whole picture when it comes to you and your other teammate."

The keeper of the nine-tails. He can imagine why he might become a threat to him, given what he is. Akatsuki's plans aren't entirely known to him, but they wouldn't be the first group to try and go after the tailed beasts. He should speak with the blond as well. He seemed rather energetic.

"You care for your teammates a great deal."
slugly: (serious; i know wat m saying)

[personal profile] slugly 2014-02-17 06:05 am (UTC)(link)
That doesn't help her. Her jaw quirks in irritation but she keeps a tight grip on her emotions. She couldn't afford to lose it here, not with Sasuke threatening them about Itachi and her needing a certain bit of information that Naruto or Sasuke haven't fessed up to.

He didn't need the whole picture between her and Naruto. He hits the nail on the head anyway, she cares about those two the most. She wants to protect them, at all costs. If Itachi as still a threat to Naruto, she would make sure he knew not to mess with him.

"Thank you for noticing," she says, letting her annoyance bleed a little into the statement because she hasn't forgiven Itachi yet and probably never would. "I'd protect them with my life if I had to." Which may or may not be a warning to him just as much as Sasuke had warned them.

"Hey there!"

The voice comes from Luka, who has walked right up behind Sakura as she's distracted. "You must be Sakura. I'm Luka. What's up?"

A simple enough greeting, but hey, the timing...

[personal profile] slugly 2014-02-22 12:48 am (UTC)(link)
Spared again with everyone's great timing. She jumps a bit (good job sneaking up on a ninja) and turns around, lowering the bowl slightly and staring in surprise.

"Oh! Hello! Nice to meet you, Luka," she finally smiles, friendly, and bows her head politely. "How do you... ?"

She trails off, but it's obvious what the question is. She doesn't understand how she could know who she is.
missvicegirl: (I smell a patsy)

[personal profile] missvicegirl 2014-02-22 03:20 pm (UTC)(link)
Luka laughed nervously. "Yeah, sorry about that," she said. "It's my business to keep track of information. I found it out... pretty easily."
slugly: (happy; AHAHA SHUT UP)

[personal profile] slugly 2014-02-22 09:39 pm (UTC)(link)
"No, it's okay!" She waves her hand a little. If anyone knows how important information is, it would be a ninja. "I didn't exactly hide my name from anybody either so it's no surprise. And my teammate Naruto is a bit of a loud mouth, if you've met him."

She would if she hasn't already.
missvicegirl: (flirtacious)

[personal profile] missvicegirl 2014-02-24 10:49 am (UTC)(link)
"Oh, I could definitely tell you stories about loud mouthed team-mates..."

Then Luka shot Sakura a grin. "Anyway... I thought I'd invite you to go get a 'welcome to the crew' drink."
slugly: (happy; ANMitsUUUUUUu)

[personal profile] slugly 2014-02-24 06:41 pm (UTC)(link)
Her too, huh? She'll get along with this member of the crew at least. Although, Sakura can usually get along with anyone.

Usually.

For a moment Sakura's smile widens. "Sure!" she agrees with enthusiasm before some of it dies off. "Do you mean alcoholic?"
missvicegirl: (flirtacious)

[personal profile] missvicegirl 2014-02-26 11:11 am (UTC)(link)
"I'm pretty sure they serve water at bars," Luka replied with a laugh. "Or whatever you like. We can even share a drink here on the ship. It's more about the social interaction than anything, and you seem like someone I'd like to get to know~"
slugly: yin (happy; dis mah seal)

[personal profile] slugly 2014-02-27 09:56 am (UTC)(link)
Just making sure. She's seen enough of Tsunade and her bad drinking habits and how bad the hangovers could be if not treated so she's just a little wary of it.

The smile is back.

"Girls should stick together." She winks a bit, especially on a ship she's going to be sailing in with mostly guys. It's been a while since she could have girl time though -- time to relax. "And we're going to be comrades from now on, getting to know each other sounds like a great idea. Lead the way!"
