[breaking hiatus >.>]  
A lot of the members of the community travel, don't you?

What are your favorite places like?

[Forward dated for time management purposes]  
[The video opens on the top of a hill, a breeze making a steady sound as it moves constantly across the long grass. The light is dim, evening or early morning, a time just deprived of the sun. After a few moments, a person starts to appear, climbing up the hill from the other side. It's Tanyuu, though she's clearly younger, perhaps in her mid-teens. She's sweating, clearly pushing herself, but her progress is slow. Her eyes, for the moment, are focused downward, on her feet. As more of her comes into view, it becomes evident that she's only walking through the aid of the cane in her right hand.

She reaches the top of the hill, and looks out. There's a desperate look on her face. It changes to surprise, then disappointment, then detachment. She walks a bit down the side of the hill facing the camera, looking out all the while. And she stands there.

After a minute or two, a young man comes up the hill, stopping just past its crest. He looks a few years older than Tanyuu, with short, messy black hair and a forbiddingly serious, yet curiously blank expression. He speaks.

I knew I would find you here

[Tanyuu doesn't turn towards him, but does reply in a voice which, like her face, is mostly detached, save for the small part that's sad.]

It's just...as you said, Kumado. Wherever I run to, it's the same.

[Both continue to stand there as the light grows. Evidently, this was early morning. The dawn is breaking. As the early sunlight washes over them, Tanyuu gives a small smile.]

...That's pretty.

[The video cuts off.]

[Lunar New Year wasn't that long ago]  
I know I'm little late in saying it, but happy new year.

I had almost forgotten I had this machine. It's been months since I used it.

For those of you I don't know, my name is Tanyuu. It's a pleasure to meet you.

It looks like you're all as busy as usual.

Hey, Dramadramaduck  
Heh, one of these little pictures has me in it. That's pretty flattering.

So Tanyuu's asleep, and I thought maybe I could meet a few of the people she's been talking to with this machine I gave her.
I'm Ginko, by the way.

I've heard that things get pretty interesting for you people.

Romeo and Juliet  
I followed a recommendation and read the play Romeo and Juliet by Mr. William Shakespeare. The writing was very clever, but I'm not entirely sure how I felt about it.

It is considered a classic in many places, correct? I wondered what others thought of it.

If I may ask...  
What do you do about nightmares?

Do any of you have ways of moving past them?

I want to go outside, but I can't...

I haven't used this in a rather long time, but I...want to talk to people. I've been working so hard, and I haven't really spoken to anyone. Not about anything other than work.

How are all of you? Has anything interesting happened?

And Ginko still hasn't returned my most recent letter. I'm beginning to worry...

What was I...


Whatever being is responsible for changing hearts and minds in this way should be held accountable! Do you enjoy all the damage you could cause?

Alphonse...I'm so sorry.

I'm sorry  
Time has a habit of slipping away from me while I work, and I only just recalled that I agreed to meet Alphonse today. I failed to make any arrangements for transportation.

Would anyone be so kind as to take me to Amesteris?

A truth...virus?  
I'm afraid I do not understand what is going on. Eros is causing people to speak only the truth? Then what is viral about the effect? And why have the ones who are affected become so?

Eros, may I speak with you?

((Affected. And not happy about it.))

Forgive me...  
But with the number of people who talk about it, I've...become curious.

...I live in a rather remote place, and there is usually no one her but myself and my grandmother Tama. But I cannot help but wonder...

What is it like, being in love?

Ginko found this strange device, but he gave it to me. He said I could use it more. This way of writing is very strange, but I'm sure I'll get used to it.

So this is a way to speak with people far away, that you never even knew before, sending messages as fast as you can write? It's truly amazing.
Perhaps Ginko will find one of his own.

My name is Tanyuu. I'm honored to meet you, whoever you may be.

Do any of you know about mushi? Do you have stories about them?
