argentimperator: (Looking but not seeing)
[The feed blinks on as the PCD drops out of Sephiroth's coat pocket. The coat that Sephiroth is no longer wearing; the video catches him throwing it over a gravestone, hiding it from sight. The stone, of course, is only one out of a number he almost finds surprising. The names on them, however, are not surprising at all.

Angeal Hewley. Genesis Rhapsodos. Zack Fair. Faramis Gast. Lucrecia Crescent. Vincent Valentine.

All from his own world, with dates in Gaia's calendar. All people who have been important in his old life, even if he only found out about Vincent and Lucrecia here. But there are more stones, with more names that have nothing to do with his world.

Unohana Retsu. Gaignun Kukai Jr. Albedo Piazzola. Ulquiorra Cifer. Tsukino Usagi.

You get no prize for guessing what name is on the stone Sephiroth covered up.

His own grave is there, too, a monument topped with a guardian angel statue. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the statue seems to be missing a wing. There are three sets of dates inscribed on it, though on the third set, both dates are the same. He's already watched himself die at Cloud Strife's hands far more than could possibly be healthy for anyone, though not looking at the dates isn't any better thanks to the damn hallucinations. Listening to the bullshit spouted by his insane self is slightly less than entertaining.]

You betrayed Mother. [More voices speaking to him that no one else could hear.]

Jenova is not my mother and you are an abomination. I would almost consider these mercy killings if Strife were not such an ass.

[Despite the defiant words, Sephiroth looks more tired and depressed than anything, and the feed blinks out as he sits down by the covered grave.]

[The first, most visible thing when the feed blinks on is feathers. Sephiroth's wing almost seems to be dissolving from tip to base in a flurry of black feathers that blow away on the breeze. When those clear away a bit, Sephiroth himself becomes easier to see, taking a shaky step backwards. The angle on the video is such that it's impossible to see what he's retreating from, but the look on his face and the blood on Masamune's blade are both clear.

Even to the average observer, it's obvious that Sephiroth is pained and horrified. To the people who actually know him, and how subtle his displays of emotion usually are, the expression is like a blinking neon warning that he is in Bad Shape. When he speaks, it's barely audible and sounds... broken.]


[The PCD feed jostles and eventually blinks out as Sephiroth snatches the device back up and, for the first time in his life, runs from something.]
argentimperator: (Bedtime)
[Since Sephiroth is currently bandaged on a bed in the clinic, he is not feeling terribly inclined to activate the video function of his PCD. The announcement he wants to make doesn't require him to be seen.]

I have completed my initial work of editing and updating the previously existing briefing for new arrivals. The revised briefing packet can be located here. [Insert network link here.]

I am available for feedback and suggestions if anyone believes vital information has been left out or presented poorly.

[Yes. This is what Sephiroth has been doing while confined to a bed in the clinic. Working. The man does not seem to have any conception of the meaning of 'inactivity'. Let alone 'complete bed rest'. It doesn't help that he is chafing at being in the clinic while other people have been investigating the Inner City.]
argentimperator: (Solemn moment)
[For a moment, the PCD just shows black from where it clattered to the ground. Then the black, apparently the black leather of Sephiroth's coat, slips away from the camera. The angle is weird and awkward, but it's not hard to see that Sephiroth is.... not in good shape. His materia bangle is clutched in his left hand, one of the materia on it just beginning to flicker with a dim green glow.

His right hand has blood all over it, mostly from a vicious gash on his right arm. Or maybe some of it is from that hole in his torso. All in all, there's plenty of blood to go around.]


[His attempt to cast is cut off by a harsh coughing fit. As he lifts his right hand to his mouth to cover it, more blood spatters the black leather of his glove. This particular blood very definitely came out of his mouth. Internal injuries, maybe?]
