Katana of The HolyThe authentic Japanese sword is made from a specialized Japanese steel called "Tamahagane" which consist of combinations of hard, high carbon steel and tough, low carbon steel. There are advantages and setbacks to both types of steel. Having a lot of carbon within the steel allows the blade to hold a sharp edge but can be too brittle and may break in combat. Having a small amount of carbon will allow the steel to be more malleable, making it able to absorb impacts without breaking but becoming blunt in the process. The makers of a katana would use the best attributes of both kinds of steel by placing the high carbon steel in the front of the blade for a sharp edge while placing the low carbon steel in the back where it can absorb most of the impact. The katana gets its gentle curve from quenching during forging, as it is straight prior to quenching. A process of differential tempering causes martensite to form predominantly in the edge of the blade rather than the back; as the spine haKatana of The Holy43 minutes ago in Profiles More Like This
Agrokinesis (Plant Manipulation)A week later after 16 had approached Ayame the first time she yet again came to her to provide her with more information that she had forgotten to bring up the first time.Agrokinesis (Plant Manipulation)58 minutes ago in Profiles More Like This
16's ears drooped as if she had grown tired of telling the all the information she had to give,but she wanted the Leeker's to have all the information they needed with the hope that they would be more likely to keep their distance. “I also have the ability of Agrokinesis or simply plant manipulation. I am also immune to all plant based toxins." 16's expression had been neutral but that sinister glint had returned to her eyes. A soft purr had begun to vibrate through her chest as she spoke. "One move I have with this ability is to create a protective armor suit made of bark, being as strong as Kevlar yet still flexible enough for me to move around freely, and is heat resistant up to four hundred degrees Fahrenheit. With my first post I begin by kneeling down with one hand touching the ground as the bark slowly b

Woke up in a nice comfy bed. My bed! XD I went downstairs and had Nutella on whole wheat toast for breakfast. As I posted yesterday's blog, Mom came down and had to go to work. After she left, Andrew came down and made himself breakfast. I went back up and decided to clean my room. It was messy and I've told myself that my room needs to be clean before I leave for college. So I rolled up my sleeves and got to work. A lot of garbage was thrown out, I collected more stuff that I'll take with me to college and my room now looks more organized.
As I took a quick break, my friend from yesterday texted me. She had saw my blog post and for a bit we talked. She wants to still be friends too, but we really need to talk about it. We decided that once I get back to Woodstock, we'll video chat and see how it goes. I'm glad that we talked today, even if it was for a little bit. Hopefully things will get better soon.
Soon it was almost noon. Mom wanted me to take Andrew to

“Welcome, _____!” My name filled in the blank next to welcome. It was bold, so it stood out. “Before we begin, we would like to give you this very helpful piece of advice:

After 16 and 13 had teamed up, Leeker Ayame Nashiko lost track of 16. It had appeared they were looking for a place to settle and call home, a place where they didn't have to hide from the world they lived in.
It hadn't been long before they were able to find a place to settle; where humans, demons and the like could live and interact with one another. With the Ayakashi no longer traveling Ayame was able to keep tabs on 16 more efficiently. However something hadn't been right and a month later both 16 and 13 vanished. A week had passed before she once again spotted them, yet there was something different about 16, tattoos covered her neck, wrists and ankles. A month later after they returned 16 had approached Ayame with a playful, yet sinister glint in her pink eyes.
"I know you have been following me, keeping track of my movements and reporting any information you find to your fellow Leekers. I wish to give you information to add to your file
