Abe no Seimei: Terra Ignota AU

The door opens on a gleaming city where the neon fires of commerce light curving metal walls, and flying cars dart through the air in a complicated dance. Crowds throng the streets, from booted Humanists and gentle Cousins to somber Masons and laughing Europeans.

Someone detaches themself from the crowd and slips through the door: a man, a Utopian, their eyes covered by a silvery vizor, their Griffincloth coat currently displaying a twilit, overgrown temple garden. A green sensayer's scarf winds loosely around their neck.1 They quietly but firmly shut the door, cutting off the sights and sounds of the city.

(On the Griffincloth coat coat, a three-tailed kitsune emerges from behind a tree, sniffs the air, twitches its tails, and bounds off out of sight.)

"Ah! What a welcome surprise! And fortunate too: I need some new material." The Utopian reaches into their coat and pulls out a small notebook and pen, so they can sketch anyone particularly interesting for possible later use in one of their books.

(They might be sketching you.)

There's a young man sitting by the fire, a notebook open on his knees. He taps out a tune as he scribes down musical notations. He hums aloud, eyes closed as he finds the right sounds.

He's too preoccupied to notice if he's being drawn.

Sin lifts his voice in a soaring series of notes, frowning and shaking his head before erasing the notes and trying again.

After half an hour or so, he shakes his head. He needs coffee. Something to keep him sharp. He looks around, spotting the strangely dressed individual and nodding politely.

Sin sets his notations aside and orders a coffee. Rather strong coffee ordered in fluent Italian.

He pauses to admire the coat. "How very beautiful."

"How wonderful, a world of your own." He notices the sketch, tucking his curls back. "Your art is beautiful. I can't speak well of the subject though." He smiles self-deprecatingly.

"Frustrated composer might be more apt." He smiles but accepts the complement with a graceful bow. "But thank you."

"I'm meant to be working on my end of year composition but it doesn't feel right tonight." He pushes his golden mane back, frustrated with himself.

"What a wonderful idea." Sin smiles. "I've been told there's quite a lovely forest here. I'm from a large city. Not a lot of nature to be found nearby.

Sin beams brightly. "I would be very grateful, thank you! Just give me a moment." He tidies his papers, packing everything back into a battered backpack which the bar stashes for him.

"I'm Sin, by the way."

"A pleasure to meet you." Sin smiles, following him outside. He takes in the view of gardens and lake with a soft gasp of joy. "The air is so clean." Not that Florance is that polluted but still. He turns his face up to the sunlight, eyes closed and smiling radiantly.

"It's so wonderfully green." He smiles, looking out across the gardens. "Is the lake safe to swim in?"

Sin doesn't yet know the concept of Shinrin-yoku but he feels it. The refreshing joy of nature. He follows gladly, watching the joy the bees bring Miyazaki.

"Really?" Sin brightens with curiosity. "As a cohesive whole with a leader, as bees do?"

"You mentioned bash'mates? That's your family?"
