[Yohan] Tit-For-Tat

 
It's already late in the morning, but the gardeners' shears are still loud in his ears as Shido strides out on the drive. They've usually done with the front by now, but everyone is running late today, it seems. The driver of the delivery truck is a new guy, a foreigner. He catches Shido's eye and tugs his cap down. His cheeks go red as he mumbles something about trouble finding the place. He smells nervous.

[Maria] November 19, Minato Mirai 21

 
They had just gotten paid, which was good, and they'd been nowhere near the Honky-Tonk at the time, which was better, because it meant they got to splurge on dinner before Paul could demand his share. It wasn't quite cold enough to snow, and the last of the dead leaves were falling through the air. Dinner was all-you-can-eat pasta, at one of the many restaurants in Yokohama that had not been planning for just how much Ginji could eat, when motivated. Ban had a few breadsticks. His appetite was always bad in winter.

[Kagenuma] The Name Of The Rose

 
I, of all people, am aware that we live in a universe which is based on the data that we perceive. Change that data, and the world changes. What's more, we change with the world and do not even realize it.

It is possible for a system to be theoretically correct to those inside it, but only disprovable by those outside the system. I exist within the Archive. The Archive is true. The Archive may change, but I will change with the Archive and be unaware of the change. But does this mean that there is an observer outside the Archive?

Time and space are artifacts of perception.

[Yukihiko] How Curiosity Slew The Snake

It was easy, with girls. They pretty much expected it, you know. All you really had to do was say something, make a suggestion, be open about it. And then... well, if you were Midou Ban, you usually got a nasty look, or maybe a smack across the face. Sometimes she'd lay you out on the pavement and grind her heel into your gut. But even so, no real harm done. No big deal. No one really cared. (And if she did lay you out on the pavement, at least you got to look up her skirt.)

[Yamato] Blind Sighted

 
Ban rolled his eyes and pushed up his shades as he walked into the dance club. It was just as he had expected it would be. Dark with annoying flashy rainbow lights, full of hot chicks who would never give him a second look or the time of day, and bombarded with loudly blaring music. In other words flashy, pretentious, obnoxious, and most importantly the last place Ban wanted to be. Still he was on a mission. Though a stupid mission. A stupid mission that didn’t pay.
