He needed to tell her…what? That she was lovely and brave and better than anything he deserved. That he was twisted, crooked, wrong, but not so broken that he couldn’t pull himself together into some semblance of a man for her. That without meaning to, he’d begun to lean on her, to look for her, to need her near. - Leigh Bardugo
Nobunaga & Mitsuhide’s lottery items have arrived!
Finally, charge into battle clad wearing Nobunaga or Mitsuhide’s colors with this long-awaited, brand new lottery! But it’s only available for a limited time – don’t forget to check! Nobunaga or Mitsuhide: which of these brave Lords holds your allegiance? Whose battle armor will you wear?
All the courtesan-themed chibis from current Tenka battle event…
It’s May, a rainy month and the ajisai is in bloom. You are a beautiful courtesan and a handsome patron seeks refuge from the rain on your door.
This chibi batch is full of mysteries.
1. Why are the cinnamon rolls making those smug faces? *casually side eyeing Masa and Mitsun.
2. Mitsukechi is… Considerably less serious than usual… Not an utter bore after all…
3. Why aren’t you happy Koju and Shingen? You are in your element! You had an oiran-themed event, you dirty old men!
4. Yukkin, where is your nosebleed? Oh, he probably just thought that this is a regular teahouse like Saizo told him…
5. Aren’t you just happy, Inuchiyo? Hahahaha
…and affections in writing course through his veins like ink on paper…
He wasn’t expecting this.
A letter, sealed with dried azalea petals waxed in place, laid before him. It was certainly not any of the missives he was sent, nor was it something any of the Oda Clan retainers wrote. He was sure of it.
The craft was eyed with suspicion, but Mitsuhide, although drowning in doubt, counting the situations that would grant him this visually pleasing note, reached for the parchment, unfolding it slowly, with utmost care because who knew whatever was in it.
But they were words and nothing more, or rather, words adorned in beautiful strokes of ink, engulfed by a faint scent he could tell was not intentional. He could imagine the woman–whoever she was, writing down on her desk surrounded by a number of perfumes she might have used on herself, or a few sticks incense burning their usefulness away in prayer.
He shook is head.
It wasn’t the time to be concerned of how the letter was made. He set aside his fascination with aesthetics and started to read through the contents:
My darling Lord Mitsuhide,
The salutations shook him. Was it from her? Why?
I know that you are wondering why I wrote this letter for you, knowing that we live together, we work together, and we are always by each other’s side.
Amidst his confusion, he was able to smile, and continued on.
But that is why I chose to write to you: knowing that you will not expect me doing so. Tell me my love, did I surprise you?
She did, very much so.
As you read this, I am in the kitchen, cooking for tonight’s celebration of your birthday, and, as busy as you are as ever, I know that you will not rest until the last of tasks have been taken care of.
Lord Nobunaga said, ordered, that you spend your day leisurely, but look at you, still going through missives when you are to rest.
I will tell you that I wish for the same, then perhaps, now, you are sitting down, ignoring all other documents because you have this letter in your hands.
It may not be much, but I hope that the few minutes you spend on this gift of mine brings your mind and heart a bit of ease.
Sighing with a smile, Mitsuhide folded the letter as delicately as he had opened it before, regarding the seal for a moment before scanning his room. Indeed. there was so much to be done, and he has, always, always placed his duties before everything else.
The setting sun almost blinded him as he made his way to the kitchen. The day was almost over, but his day had only just begun. Nobunaga had to threaten him to make him listen, but the letter, in it’s simplicity, made him surrender without telling him to.
Hi Agas. Out of the campaign promos you've experienced can you show us which ones you liked so far, like ones with items you most desired? Preferably ones that will be released in slbp. I ask because I'm debating whether I should spend my love passes to get the items in the current promo.
Man, I can’t predict which one will make it to SLBP or when, because that’s a case by case basis.
The closest one I’m expecting to see is this sailor-themed one. It’s a summer thing, so maybe they will release this soon, IDK. But anyway. I really like the makeup and hair it’s super cute.
And this will probably come much later, but Masamune sequel’s early clear is THE BOMB.
