Fire and Rice Empty Fire and Rice

Mon Jan 10, 2022 7:55 pm
Mission Specs:

Throughout Rice Country, the flames of a thousand hearths served as heater, stove, and light for the farmers who stoked them in the wee hours of the morning. Thin, wispy columns of smoke rose from chimneys drifting up and up until they disappeared into the still-dark sky, leaving behind only a rich, woody aroma in their wake. Save for the greedy crackling of flames, all the world held its breath, waiting for the sun—not even the songbirds, it seemed, dared to be the first to break the peace of the strange bit of liminal space between night and day.  

Crack.

It started with a stray ember. Flung from a particularly rebellious fire, the ember followed the same airborne path many of its compatriots had since the taming of flame. Unlike most of its predecessors, however, it was not destined to live a life of seconds before blinking from existence. Rather, among a straw-lined floor, it found new life; first as a flicker, then a flame, and finally an all-consuming inferno, a testament to just how little control man had over the tools it purported to master.

Smoke blackened the sky.
- - -

Descending into the terraced valley that preceded Tanbogakure, Yasahiro's gaze swept across the land without registering the developing inferno. His mind lay back at Rice Country's southern border, where he had spent the last couple of days. Zukumiki's outpost network continued to grow, and men continued to rally to the upstart warlord at an alarming rate. In a few months' time, the leader worried, Zukumiki's forces would far outnumber those of Tanbogakure, and then it would be all over—a grand experiment snuffed from existence in its cradle.

"Help, anyone! Help!"

The shrill female voice pulled the Komekage from his thoughts and back to reality. Looking to the far side of the valley, thoughts of Zukumiki's latest designs fell from the samurai's mind at the sight of smoke. In a heartbeat, his legs were moving him across the valley as fast as they could carry him.

Born from a single innocent ember, the fire raged through the modest homestead. It consumed the walls, blackened the ground, and swallowed a family's livelihood in an indiscriminate rage. Black clouds of smoke belched forth from the structure sending an acrid stench into the morning air. Cackling in glee as it consumed its latest meal, the fire left whatever silence once reigned in shambles as it would surely do to much of the landscape if not stopped. There could neither be pause for consideration nor time for deliberation, only action remained.

Komori


Komori Hozuki had been in his humble home for only a little bit now, having just come in from the fields. He wanted nothing more than to head over to Taika’s for some relaxation, regardless of it being morning or not. The evening rush in the bar the other night was proof enough that the earlier one went, the better, as he had been drawn into conversation with several people all at once, and that in itself had been draining. Upon leaving his house, however, Komori’s attention was stolen by a column of black smoke rising into the sky. The second thing he noticed was the dull roar of the flames. It was close enough to his own fields that the threat of it spreading seemed likely. He hesitated for the span of a single second, then sighed in frustration with himself as he took off towards the source.

Upon getting closer, the former shinobi signed the necessary handseals as, save for the pillars of smoke rising from the destruction, the previously cloudless sky was suddenly dotted with the creation of dark gray clouds above. Despite his isolation, he was still guilty of using this technique every now and again in order to keep the paddies efficient during times of drought. Once they had finished forming, a torrential downpour began raining from above without any real warning. As he approached, he could see the fire had already claimed an entire house, and the witnesses nearby were of no real help. People, generally speaking, are frightful creatures that are hard pressed to contribute any real assistance in tough situations. The rain droplets, infused with his chakra and sensory capabilities, only confirmed this. Even though he was unable to see everyone, the rain allowed for him to sense what people were doing, which largely consisted of yelling helplessly, trying to fill up small bowls with water from the nearby paddies to douse the flames to no effect, and others simply fleeing without regard for the consequences of this fire left to its own devices.

However, the fire was much larger than anticipated. The deluge from above primarily helped to contain the inferno and keep the flames from spreading to the paddies, but it was not quite able to extinguish the still burning homestead. The rain soaked the farmer through his clothes, but it was something he had once been used to, having once constantly been the cause himself. The raindrops kept enough of an eye on the civilians that he would be able to tell if they would foolishly try to approach the inferno with the intent to enter it. Having finally arrived at the building, still ablaze, he came to a halt and looked upon the structure. He thought to plan his next course of action, but would be taken aback at the sensation of someone moving towards the action, maybe even at an unreasonable capped speed, from the direction of the village.

Fire and Rice Empty Re: Fire and Rice

Tue Feb 01, 2022 4:10 pm
Bent by some arcane power, the morning sky churned overhead. Where once only wisps of white dominated the heavens, now clouds of black and gray moved about in an ominous, all-consuming swirl as if kneaded by unseen hands. Then came the rain, slow at first and then all at once—the sky opened up and wept in an unseasonal show of emotion.

The flames that once reached arrogantly to the sky recoiled and hissed with every raindrop. Under the collective weight of Mother Nature's tears, the fire retreated within the remnants of the structure that birthed it, it could bide its time for now. The rain, after all, could not last forever, and that was when it would strike. If not dealt a mortal blow soon the timely conjuring of rain would go to waste and all would be lost to the blaze once more. At the very least, the conflagration would need to be contained.

"Get back!"

The people at the back of the building scattered at the sound of Yasahiro's voice, giving both the leader and the structure a wide berth. Singing the metallic song of metal on metal, his blade then flew from its home at his hip and flashed forward in a single downward slash. The explosion of force that followed this movement plowed the land up behind the structure far more efficiently than any mechanical implement could ever dream of. In its wake appeared a trench about two feet in depth running parallel to the homestead and separating it from the terraces at its back. If nothing else, the fire would now have a harder time traveling along the straw-laden ground.

Wet hair plastering his forehead, Yasahiro made his way about the building in an attempt to assess the damage and next steps. Most of the farmers had taken to moving anything deemed valuable from the surrounding area, leaving the blaze to its own devices until backup could arrive. One man, however, seemed unmoved by the commotion around him, though perhaps it was simply the shock of a sudden calamity.

"Is it yours?"

Coming to a stop by the one-eyed man, he nodded to homestead.

Komori


The voice of this speeding presence seemed to carry with it a sense of authority. The raindrops falling from above painted the picture of rowdy, chaotic people craning to hear what this approaching man might say next, looking at him with expectant eyes and the longing of commoners for someone else to handle their problems. These very same raindrops landed on the former shinobi who had called them forth, rolling down his face and across his eyepatch as the droplets connecting with the newcomer allowed for Komori to see the man withdraw his blade with practiced ease and slice through the earth as though it were nothing. Someone like that? Living in Tanbo? He had not paid much attention to the growing power of the village, having lived here in the outskirts for a majority of the village’s founding. Sure, rumors circulated in the bar, but that would imply that this farmer had cared enough to pay attention to them.

Before Komori was able to contemplate the man’s identity further, he directed a question towards him, to which he shook his head. “Neighbors’,” came his brief reply over the falling rain and roaring fire. “I figured you knew these people, with the way they responded to your voice,” he pointed out. He turned his gaze back towards the flames, now hesitant over utilizing any water jutsu in front of the stranger. “I don’t suppose you have any more tricks up your sleeve to put this out?” If the need truly arose, he would have to bite the bullet and put out the fire by any means necessary, but for now, he wanted to see what kind of person with whom he was working.

"Most people know me around here," he cast a sidelong gaze over at the one-eyed man—perhaps one-eyed hermit was a better title in this case given his lacking awareness of Yasahiro's title. "It's both a blessing and a curse, I suppose."

Unlike many of the farmers, the one-eyed man blazed with chakra, even the Komekage's less-than-honed senses could feel it. How strange to find such a man so far afield from anything resembling a shinobi stronghold. Then again, he and Asahi had once been the same, so who was he to judge? It certainly wasn't his place to pry into the affairs of others if they did not wish it.

"And no," he looked over his shoulder. "We won't need any tricks here."

One of the many perks of a people banding together into a community was the safety net it provided in the face of disaster. In this case, the safety net came in the form of the fast-approaching fire brigade. Founded shortly after the formation of Tanbogakure, the fire brigade made a name for itself as an organization whose efficiency rivaled that of most militaries throughout the shinobi world. Whatever fear once burned in Yasahiro's mind melted away with the arrival of the brigade on the scene.

"They should be able to handle the rest," he gave a half nod to the captain of the brigade as he rushed by. "If you're ever interested in a life away from the fields consider making your way to Tanbogakure."

And with that, the village leader took his leave; the fire brigade had this well in hand, and he needed rest.

Komori


Ignorance was a blessing and a curse as well. It can allow you to avoid the problems of others and bear no consequence to yourself, or in this instance, the problems of a village and the shinobi world at large. People die every day, but if someone were to become hyper aware of every individual death, it would drive them mad. In this case, Komori was blessed with the ability to ignore any problems greater than himself, with a few exceptions such as this. 

Yet, the bonds that people formed as a result of facing hardship as a united front stood out as men and women came to finish what the odd pair had started. Komori could not help but agree with the man’s assessment. While many of them bore chakra signatures and worked to control the flames, extinguish them with water, smother them with earth, or redirect them with wind, there still were those who bore no such heavens given talent and instead worked diligently to support others. The brigade was a well oiled machine, their only drawback being the time it took to get to the scene, albeit compared against those of presumed higher ranking shinobi.

“We’ll see,” came Komori’s hesitant response. It’s true that he had been on the outskirts for some time now, making his way inwards once again, but it might at least be worthwhile getting the proper registration. With the nameless man’s departure, Komori was left with his thoughts as he gazed upon the dying flames.
