Edit: Added another gif...enjoy

I don't think dear Sano-kun remembers the first time we met, so I thought I would remind him. It seems that he fell pretty hard for me.........literally.

Shura: I don't get it. Why the sudden fascination with my breasts? *crosses arms to hide boobage*

Me: Um, cuz they are like gi-normous! *snort*

Shura: I hate you.

Do not jump to conclusions about Shura's stay in prison, because it probably isn't what you are thinking. All will be revealed in time (If given the opportunity). It is an ongoing plot that I've been working on for some time that may help to explain why Shura has lost the spark that she once possessed. But let's face it folks, being in prison is NOT a pleasant experience no matter who or where you are. No matter how long you are in there, it will have SOME psychological effects, whether it be depression, anxiety, problems re-adjusting to the real world, etc etc.


*Goes off to do her research like a good little girl*

Me: Well girls, the men of Himuragumi seem to think that you don't show enough skin. We must remedy that. *gets out some scissors*

Tae: Squeeeeeee! I love makeovers!

Shura: ...

10:24 pm - FYI
This is just a friendly reminder that I have only been in Tokyo for 2 days. And in the short time that I have been here, the only encounters that I have had with the men of Himuragumi have involved either work or firstaid treatment. Not exactly a romantic setting if you ask me.


In other words: This Pirate Queen will not be an easy one to tame. However, If you do decide to pursue me then I have some advice to offer...

1. Do not assume that just because I am not an ordinary woman that I do not wish to be courted as such.

2. Even though I appear to be the aggressive type, I will not make the first move nor will I throw myself at you. It just isn't my style.

3. I expect to be treated as your equal, nothing more or nothing less. (Even though we both know that I am better than you)

4. Do not patronize me. It pisses me off.

5. I have a terrible temper. Deal with it.

6. Just because you wear an eyepatch does not mean that I am instantly attracted to you.

7. Using phrases such as "Shiver me Timbers" and "Blow me down" will not seduce nor impress me. It just makes you look stupid.

[Will add to list later. I trust that there will be much more to come]

3:00 am - Some useless yet interesting tidbits of information...
Kairyu=Sea Dragon

Shura=a buddhist term which is very much like "Hell" or "Netherworld", a conceptual location of violence and carnage.

Neat, huh?

It seems, that I am indeed not the only famous female pirate. I found some very interesting information about some of my fellow Pirate Queens. Enjoy.

(Wonders why her name isn't mentioned)

9:00 pm - Shura
Age: 18
Weapons: Sans Setsu-Kon Nunchaku(Nunchucks), Katana (She doesn't have one currently because of the no sword law), she also seems to be skilled in some form of Martial Arts (Judging by the way she can take a man down with just one kick.) Basically..She's a tough cookie!
Episodes: 25-27

Shura is the former leader of the Kaiyru..a group of pirates who targeted ships of corrupt men. Her father had founded the Kairyu to save the children of the village from starving. After his death, she stepped up as leader to uphold the code of the Kairyu (Punish the Unjust..Never Steal from the Weak). Unfortunately, some of her men did not feel the same. She learned this the hard way, when she was shot in the leg (Luckily, thanks to Kenshin) by one of her own men. This really opened Shura's eyes to how she had failed miserably as a leader.

At one point, Kenshin had to stop her from killing herself..because she could not live with the shame of failing her father. After a heart to heart with Kenshin, she went back to fight the man who was leading the others against her. She valued honor above all else and would see it to the bitter end. (Nearly costing her life once again) Anyways..her wound was reopened during the fight so Kenshin stepped up in her place. Once the battle was over (Kenshin won..of course), one of her men get the bright idea to play with explosives (Smart, ne?). Kenshin rescues her from the flames as Kairyu Island goes down in a blaze of glory. (Pun intended)

After saying her goodbyes to the Kenshingumi, Shura sets sail with Sarujiro (The only pirate that was actually loyal to her) and Iwazo (Friend of her father, grandpa figure). Of course she is now an outlaw..after robbing so many ships (Even tho they totally deserved it) so that brings me to what happened to her after that...

They did make it to small village and found a doctor to help Iwazo (He had been given opium) and she got her leg properly taken care of. She was wondering around the village when she was discovered by the police. They arrested her and took her in for questioning. She was officially charged and sentenced for her crimes and remained in prison for a few months, when a goverment official came to visit. (Don't ask who..i really dont know..heh.) He offered her freedom in exchange for all the names of the owners who's ships she had looted. (Senbonya in particular)

She did not wish to waste away in prison so she quickly obliged. She was released from prison shortly thereafter, and tried to return to sailing. Sadly, it did not bring her the pleasure that it once did. Her life needed a purpose. This is what brings her to Tokyo...to try to figure out who she is and to bring honor to her father's name.

Following the destruction of Kairyu island, life as I knew it changed. Everything my father had worked for, even -died- for..was destroyed in mere minutes. Sometimes, I can still smell the smoke and remember what it was like to watch my village burn down to the ground. I'll never forget that day..the day that my whole world fell apart.

I left Kairyu island and haven't been back since. There are just too many memories at that place. Mostly, it just serves as a reminder of how I have failed my father. If he were alive, he would never forgive me for allowing those men to turn against me as they did. Had I been stronger, maybe none of this would have ever happened. I may not have started the fire with my own hands, but I am just as responsible. It was one of -my- own men..one of the same men who my father helped to save from starvation. It's all my fault, I should have done something. I should have opened my eyes and saw those men for what they really were. I should have...

Father..please forgive me.

(OOC: Feel free to comment.)

Punish the unjust..never steal from the weak.

Those were my father's words, and the code of the Kairyu. After his death, I took his place as leader. I was determined to follow his footsteps and to take care of our village as he did. Unfortunately, it wasn't quite that simple...

My mother died when I was an infant..I have no memories of her, except for the crimson kimono that father gave me. Sometimes, I try to picture what she looked like, and wonder if I resemble her at all. Father once told me that I have my mother's heart and his warrior spirit. There are times, when it is difficult to find the balance between the two.

Leading a group of insubordinate pirates..I was unable to experience the things that most women my age do. I could not view myself as a woman, for that would make me vulnerable. I had to lock away inside of me all of the emotions normal women feel. I focused all of my effort into learning how to fight head to head with any man, instead of worrying about trivial things such as love, kimonos, and such. That is the only way I was able to keep the Kairyu together for as long as I did.

Sadly, in the end..it just wasn't enough.

current mood: thoughtful

The rhythmic motion of the sea is my only comfort on this night. I stand here on the deck of a passenger ship..anxious to reach my destination. The ocean has been my home..my way of life for as long as I can remember. I close my eyes and inhale the ocean breeze. There is no other smell in the world that makes me feel this way. So..alive.

The Kairyu has long since been disbanded. I just could not control them any longer. They had never respected me..for I am a woman. This is why I will strive to surpass everyone's expectations of what a woman should be. I will do this to make my father proud..since I have already failed him once with the Kairyu. I will -not- fail him again.

I'm sorry father..I have failed you. I could not make your dream a reality...I'm just not as strong as you were.

But I will be...

I will bring honor to my father's name one way or another. I suppose that is why I have chosen the path I am now taking. For some reason..sailing no longer brings me the pleasure that it used to. My life is missing something.... a purpose. Now that I am no longer the leader of the Kairyu...who am I? Perhaps, I will find the answer that I am searching for...in Tokyo.

current mood: anxious
