The weather was terrible. Thunder cracked about and the rain poured down in sheets. The wound on his shoulder kept him from going about town. With a stack of large books, the Bookman curled up on the couch in the tea room and began to pour over them. The books the Earl kept were absolutely fascinating, detailing the involvement of the Noah and other mysterious parties throughout history.
Aside from the occasional bustle of the akuma servants, the mansion was incredibly quiet. Tyki was off probably indulging in his human side while Rhode was at school. The twins were off on a mission, and Cyril was off on governmental affairs. The others Lavi had no idea where they were or what they were doing. Skin refused to talk to Lavi and Lulu Bell didn't talk in general. Those two made his record incredibly difficult.
Mrow. A black cat with a bell around its neck jumped onto the back of the couch and perched there. Lavi didn't know

Lavi..... Lavi.... The old man frowned. He pulled his hand back and slapped the redhead across the back of his head. Lavi!
The redhead rubbed the back of his head, turning around, frowning back at the old man. Hey, that hurt!
Idiot! he shouted back. Pay attention! Your name's Lavi now and you're about to observe the secret war between the Noah and the Exorcists.
Noah. He'd heard about them but knew very little. In fact no one really knew much about them. They'd appear throughout history then disappear as soon as they had arrived. They existed alongside history since the biblical Noah had existed within history. But any data about them was unknown. Who they were, what they did, even their involvement was vague at best. But now, he had the opportunity to observe the mysterious Noah first hand. This was great!
Lavi grinned, plastering a friendly smile across his soft features. Don't

Lavi sat uncomfortably in the tea room. Hed been with the Noah only two weeks, and already theyd made him feel incredibly unwelcome. Tyki was the only Noah (who Lavi was positive was a Noah, unlike the others, who he wasnt sure of) who hadnt threatened his life. He seemed to be older than the rest, perhaps more reasonable as well. However, like the rest of the Noah, Tyki was so incredibly secretive, Lavi got nothing from him.
On his previous records, Lavi had always been able to charm his way into peoples hearts, able to easily obtain any information from them. He had a way of speaking to people simply and causally, that always got people talking. It was a mannerism hed developed and refined throughout his studies as a Bookmans apprentice. However here, that technique wasnt giving him any sort of advantage. Hed have to discover some way to gain their trust and gain information that

Lavi sipped some tea in a shop in Turkey. He'd been tracking the movements of the Exorcists for three days and his information lead him to London. It hadn't been long since he'd begun to share information with the Noah. They were here somewhere but he needed to be careful. Kanda was among them.
Yeah, I've seen them, said the man behind the counter.
The people in black coats and silver crosses, yeah? Lavi reaffirmed.
The man nodded. Yeah, three of them. They were in here this morning for breakfast.
They were close, perhaps even right around the corner. Lavi would have to play his cards right to get the information he wanted. Plastering an inviting smile across his face, he propped his chin on his hand, inquiring, Ya happen t' hear anything they were talkin' 'bout? Maybe where they were headin'?
Judging by Lavi's expression, the man behind the counter thought nothing of the question.

The Akuma waitstaff was bustling about, and Lavi was quickly shoved out of the kitchen with a fresh cup of tea. Their tea just wasnt as good as what he could make but he just had to settle with what they gave him for now. It was the first time hed ever been invited to one of the dinners. Normally he sat by himself in the tea room or the library, pouring over books, or ventured about town to listen to the newest rumors about the black coated Exorcists.
Sighing, the redhead made his way into the dining room and took a seat near the foot of the table. His plan was to simply sit back and observe everyone, if it were just more than him and the Earl. Lavi truly didnt know what to expect, but he knew there had to be some form of information that hed gather here and now.
Ho~, another family dinner.
Lavi looked up. It was the cheating poker player, Tyki, dressed in a formal suit, his wavy hair pulled back

Two years passed and Lavi was still with the Noah. He'd met every single one of them, learned some of their powers, some history. Whatever they offered, he took and stored away for future reference.. He'd become close to them and began to be unable to distinguish if his smiles were real or fake. He was becoming family to them.
The Noah and Lavi sat at the dinner table, the Earl at the head of the table. As usual, Jasdero and Debitt had gotten into a fight over who got the last piece of turkey while Rhode had simply stolen it from under their noses. Tyki sighed, propping his chin on his elbow. Lulu Bell and Skin Boric were ignoring the entire ordeal. Cyril was too busy fawning over how cute Rhode was. That left Lavi to simply observe the entire fiasco, amused by how strange this family was.

Lavi, the Earl called out. Lavi, come here~♥
In the two years Lavi had been with the Noah, he'd never been called into the Earl's room, not even with one of the Noah. He'd always encountered him outside, usually at dinner. The Earl did so enjoy his family dinners.
Lavi stepped into the room. It was dark with many akuma lurking in the shadows. But in the center sat the Earl, knitting something. It was the first time Lavi had ever seen the Earl do anything remotely domestic. And he seemed incredibly happy doing it, too.
I have something for you, Lavi! the Earl said, tossing Lavi something small.
Lavi caught the item and turned it over in his hands. It was a small metallic hammer, one with a round head on a staff. It was far too tiny to be any sort of weapon.
Those Exorcists are being so pesky, the Earl continued, so you need to fight back! It's crafted from Akuma material and will respo

Help me with my homework, Lavi ♥ Rhode threw herself onto his shoulders.
Despite being surrounded by piles of books in the Earl's expansive library, Lavi always seemed to be found. And when Rhode found him, Rhode came first before the books. He had tried to object a few times but ended up surrendering in the end. He had doomed himself when he first took one of her workbooks and filled in all the correct answers.
Which subject? Lavi inquired, closing the encyclopedia he had been reading.
Still hanging on his shoulders, she shoved the book in front of him. Bi-o-lo-gy.
Lavi looked at the bookmarked page. Anatomy. This seems more like Tyki's subject. He could just pull someone apart for ya.
Rhode giggled. But he's not home!
Lavi reached out and pulled a book from the stack, then opened to a particular page. Turning it sideways it revealed a large diagram of the human body. Th

I've found the white rabbit, Kanda smirked, sounding rather pleased with himself.
Lavi didn't move. He wasn't about to lose his head.
Yuu-kun, there's no need for that, Tiedoll stated, looking up from his art.
Don't call me that, old man! Kanda shouted at him. And don't be so fucking stupid!
But I always call you that, Yuu-kun, Tiedoll protested calmly.
That's not the point! Kanda fussed back. This Bookman here's been giving out our location to those Noah!
It was incredibly true, although Lavi would just vehemently deny it. Lavi continued to stay still, or at least that's how he appeared. He had quietly managed to slip his hand into his pouch unnoticed and wrap his fingers around the hilt of the tiny hammer, and remove it from the pouch.
Kanda tightened his grip on Lavi. Blood began to trickle down his neck and it felt almost painful to breathe. He had

"SAILOR SUN!!!!" The horrified shriek resounded through the park. Usagi could only watch in horror as Sun, her new friend and ally, took a possibly fatal hit to the shoulder. Sun collapsed next to her in the dirt, unconscious. "No! No!" she shouted repeatedly, pulling herself over to her friend. She had to do something. She had to, but what? She was practically pointless in battle. Fear had been consuming her heart, slowly casting a black shadow over her heart and mind. She'd lost hope, and this battle was making it even worse.
The repeating nightmare flashed in her mind. No matter how many times she reached out into the darkness, she always lost that person calling out to her. It was hopeless, always ending with the same results. Without hope, she just couldn't fight.
She pressed her hands against Sun's shoulder in hopes to stop the bleeding, praying for a miracle. Maybe, just maybe, there was a chance the Crystal would respond. Maybe she could fight the n

"Take this!" Minako sprang into action, spiking the volleyball over the net.
Juri leapt forward, attempting to counter and knock the ball at least upwards. She missed, the ball landed on her side of the court as she skidded and skinned her knee. Nothing serious. It would heal pretty quickly. "Your point," she grinned, recovering quickly back to her feet.
The night had been crisp and cool, and instead of heading home, Juri and Minako decided to feed their rivalry and have a rematch volleyball game. Their last match at the gym had been interrupted when Dixite burst through the wall, and the two really hadn't had a chance to have another game. So the two had retreated to an empty park to duke it out on the court.
"Ah! Are you alright?" Minako exclaimed. She was used to getting dirty, but she wanted to make sure Juri wasn't going to hurt herself. It was a friendly match, not a battle.
"Oh, I'm fine," Juri brushed off the concern. "It's n

Rhode spun around in her dress. It was a new one Cyril had bought for her, sporting a multi-tiered skirt and many ruffles.
Oh~~! You're so cute! Cyril squealed in absolute delight.
Rhode simply giggled then she spotted the redhead across the room. She leapt forward, clinging to his waist. You're so cute, Lavi!
I feel ridiculous, Lavi retorted. The Bookman had never worn anything quite like this. A black formal jacket with notched tails over a white collared shirt and black pants and formal shoes. His hair was down for once, falling in his face. His eyepatch and earrings contrasted the entire formal appearance, as well as his lack of a bow tie, since he had no idea how to actually tie one.
Cyril blinked, almost gaping at Lavi with his rather gaunt face. Have you never worn something like that before?
Lavi shook his head. I'm a Bookman, not nobility. We travel all ov

The redhead stared at himself in the mirror. Meeting the old man face to face after three years felt different. Lavi had known him for 13 years now, but for the first time he could recall, it didnt feel like a meeting of master and apprentice. Instead it felt as if two opponents had met in a cold standstill, neither wishing to draw the first blood but instead watching from the sidelines as the events unfolded before them.
Youre too involved.
The old man was right. Completely. Lavi knew he was too involved in this record. He couldnt quite pinpoint when he began to develop a heart, to finally find something to melt the compassionless lump that dwelled within his chest. However, he did become aware of it when he finally gained the Noahs trust, painfully aware, and he proceeded to fight the surfacing of emotions and compassions, the human attachments he had long since left behind.

There was a lot to take in just from the past two days. Usagi buried her emotions inside as she made her way to school, plastering on her usual smile. She didn't want anyone to worry about her. She was just fine. That sudden loss of powers yesterday was just a fluke. Everything would be fine, right?
She felt a tug on her sleeve, more of a sudden yank that stopped her in her tracks. Turning, she saw that Minako had grabbed her sleeve, a serious expression drawn across her face.
"Usagi," Minako frowned. "You can hide it all you want, but I can see you're upset. You've been dragging your feet since the gym incident." After the attack on the gym, all the students had been sent home. School was canceled yesterday, giving everyone a day to recover before returning today.
"I'm fine," Usagi lied.

"Wh-what the hell?" The usually quiet voice echoed down the crowded hallway, startling those around her. Ami stood in front of the ranking boards for the spring exams, frowning sharply, a passion flaring inside of her heart.
"What is it, Ami-chan?" Makoto asked, coming up behind her to look over the crowd with her height. Usagi and Minako attempted to hop high enough to read the boards.
"I don't believe it," Umino noted aloud, pushing his way to the front. He pushed his glasses further up his nose to get a better look at the top of the board. Given his height it was harder to read but someone had scored a perfect score on the tests, matching Ami's seemingly impossible scores.
"What's going on?" Juri asked, joining the crowd. She wasn't as tall as Makoto but she could still see somewhat over the crowd.

Sailor Moon hadn't quite withdrawn her hand, leaving it outstretched, waiting for a new ally to take it. "They... left..." It shouldn't have been as surprising as it was. The outers were initially aloof with her but had become close friends. Perhaps these Eclipse shadows would be too.
"Wait!" Sun shouted, darting off in the direction Saturnalius and Neptunusia had left. They were allies, and they had to work together to fight this chaos. Sun knew something was up. Phefe had warned her that chaos was trying to return, but Saturnalius seemed to know so much more. "Please wait!" And yet even as far as she'd run, she couldn't find them.
She came to a stop, letting her arms hang limply to the side. "What's going on, Phefe? What's with those two? Why won't they stay?"
The blue cat emerged from the shadows. "Saturnalius definitely knows something more than we do. Whatever memory she has, the rest of us seem to have sealed." Until now she'd kept h

"Who are you?" Sailor Moon cried out. She felt lost, again, unable to reach the girl with the gloved hand. She reached and reached but could only grasp nothingness. "Where are you?"
"You're our only hope, Sailor Moon!" The voice shouted, echoing in the darkness as it faded away.
Usagi jolted awake, knocking Luna off her lap. Usagi had been watching the news with her father and brother, who was actually doing homework and not listening, while her mother was preparing dinner. She must've dozed off while petting Luna, not listening to some news anchor prattle on about strange occurrences around town. No, she was instead focused on the dream which was becoming more and more frequent. She didn't want to let anyone see her upset. They wouldn't understand.

Rei sat uncomfortably on her feet at the table. She had informed the others of her vision, the premonition of the elements fighting the villain and of the broken moon. It didn't sit any better with them as it did with her.
"It's like Guardian Cosmos had said," Usagi finally broke the silence. "Chaos could return; I just didn't expect it so soon." She was going to become Neo Queen Serenity soon. She was going to be Mamoru's wife soon. But for now, she was going to finish high school like a normal girl. At least that was the plan.
"It could have something to do with that Henna Juri girl that showed up today," Minako nodded sagely. "You said you got a weird feeling from her."
"Henna?" Rei echoed. "What a weird name."
"What's weirder is how much she looks like me," Makoto chimed in.
