Sengoku Horizon

Look towards the Horizon

The Warring States Period: Fierce warlords fought for control of Japan, and many would perish. When a warrior falls, where does the passion they once held go? Possibly into something dear such as a favorite weapon or heirloom. These heirlooms have been labeled as “relics”, and those that carry them are labeled as “Scions." Recently more and more of these special relics have been activating, signaling the start of a great change as ancient power meets the modern world!

Now For The Local News, 3/8/2017Spring has come. The war with the Ikko Ikki monks has begun! The Bugei students set off to various areas of Japan in the first war the country has seen in nearly 200 years! What will happen as monks and samurai clash? FIND OUT!

[Early Spring, February: Light Showers]

The usual spring rain came with the usual turn of the season. It'll be another two months before the cherry blossoms in Edo and all over Japan will start its pink wave from the southern all the way to the top. But while it may be raining outside, Edo Bugei continued as its usually did in strides despite the looming anticipation of when the coming strike will happen from the Ikko monks. Training and vigilance became a higher priority for many students while others sought peace and wondered how things will fair made minor occasions like Valentines Day and White Day to take on a slightly different light for some. For those such reasons, are kept in private of those who wish it.

On the second floor of the club building rested the Home Ec room. Inside were students, both club members and not, getting aprons on and setting out the supplies. Basic recipes from soft cookies to brownies were bookmarked and copied for any students who wish to take these recipes. Students tasked with teaching others who to cook and give pointers were given a red apron while newer chefs were in white or pink. For now was it too early to start any cooking competitions and just help with the basics; the main purpose of this event.

Not many people knew how to cook and making sweets can be both difficult and easy. It's very easy to burn them and turn them into heart shaped rocks than delicious cakes. Hopefully this would encourage people to try cooking on their own but the key theme was around sweets so there's no avoiding this for those who aren't partial to sugar. If all goes well, there might be a cook off for talented members. On the back of class, since the front board was taken up with doodles of announcing the cooking class, in large pink hearts and red text read the event's main key ingredient.

Always put LOVE in your cooking!

When Mirai had heard about the Home Ec. club’s plan to run an activity for Valentine’s Day baking, she had been all over the idea. Learning to cook was something she’d promised herself she’d do, and the main reason she joined the Home Ec. club in the first place, and getting to try out some of the skills she was learning there alongside other students that were not part of the club sounded like it would be a fun opportunity to see if she could further those skills more. She didn’t particularly care that it was for Valentine’s Day; it’s wasn’t like she had anyone special in mind to even give the results of the baking to, and most likely she’d just end up giving it to random people she knew. She had come along for the experience of the cooking. As she meandered along the hall the Home Ec. clubroom, she wondered if anyone she knew from outside the club would have come along.

Mirai had only signed up to be participating in the cooking, and not as one of the students rostered on to supervise and help the other students. As much as she wanted to help others out, she wasn’t in a position where she was experienced enough at cooking to be any good if someone had a problem. Maybe next time she could help out like that.

Plenty of other students were already in the room setting up by the time she arrived. Mirai went and found herself a white apron and tied it around her waist. Uncertainly, she glanced around; did they need any more help setting out the ingredients or anything? Were they allowed to get started or were they going to wait until everyone had arrived?

“Sorry, excuse me, is there anything you need help with?” Mirai asked a passing red-aproned student, whom she’d seen around the Home Ec. club but never talked to at length; the other student merely shrugged and replied that she was fairly certain they had everything under control already.

“Oh. Right.” Mirai clasped her hands in front of her and twiddled her thumbs. No-one seemed to be getting started so she assumed that they must still be waiting before they begin; she would start trying out one of the recipes once everyone else had started, too. In the meantime she glanced around, seeing if there was anyone she could recognise here who she knew better than just as a passing acquaintance.

"Okay okay, everyone to stations!" A senior commended in a red apron. They assumed the role of the head chef and supervisor. Basically they're the one the red aprons go to when sudden supply shortages happen or if one the ovens stopped working rather than actual pro tips on cooking. The senior strolled up to the board to write down their name in large kanji letters for introduction; Miyabi Takane!

"Thank you all for coming and while the room may not look it now but many more cooks will come in and out of the room. I'd like everyone to select the recipe they are interested in trying and divide up the room. Groups working on cookies to the left, cakes in the middle, frozen goods to the back, and the right side for candies. Our goal here today is help everyone learn how to bake their delicious sweets and decorate as needed. When you're done with the projects, the portion of the home-ec room where we do our tailoring has been set up as the gift wrapping table. When your cakes are cooking or chilling, please take the time to make up any cards or choose what wrappings you'd like but always remember where your station is. We wouldn't want those precious feelings to go up in smoke." The lame joke was met with a few groans of embarrassment but the senior just grinned at their despair. The set up wasn't very discreet if anyone came in to make something for that special someone but that didn't phase Takane at all. She openly had her heart on her sleeves and encouraged young couples. To say V-day and White Day wasn't her favorite holidays would be an understatement.

"Remember to follow the instructions carefully though. Many accidents happen due to accidentally putting in the wrong ingredients. Us members in the Home Ec. Club has taken the measure of labeling every item you see at the work stations. When you ever need us to check your work, don't hesitate to call upon us. Remember! The key ingredient today is love! Please put your heart into your cooking everyone!"

"You're no pro!" A male called in the back wearing a head scarf to keep his long bangs back. He too wore a red apron. A few guys in their group laughed as well while Takane fumed and pumped her fist into the air. "It's the feeling that counts! Love conquerors all!" She shouted as her battle cry amidst the laughter in the room, undaunted at being the spectacle of the day before heading over to join his group in making cupcakes.

Mirai turned to face Takane and the whiteboard as soon as the senior girl called them to attention. As a member of the Home Ec. club Mirai was already familiar with the name written there, as most of the club would no doubt be, but she supposed there were people attending who were not members of the club and would need that introduction.

Takane requested the students break off into their groups based on what they were going to make and Mirai was faced with the choice of which group to chose. She headed to the left of the room, where they were going to be focusing on cookies. Cookies, Mirai thought, would be fairly easy to share around if she decided to give a few to a couple of different people. She absentmindedly leafed through the recipes for cookies as she listened to Takane give her speech about how the day would be organised and made poor jokes about feelings. It brought a small smile to Mirai's lips, not because she found the jokes themselves funny but because Takane was putting so much energy into it. At least Takane was having fun even if no-one else seemed to find it amusing.

Follow the instructions. That couldn’t be too difficult. Most of these recipes had detailed step-by-step methods so it would be hard to get something wrong.

"You're no pro!" some guy up the back called out. Mirai glanced at him, frowning; it was a bit rude to say something like that, particularly to shout it in a crowded room. She went to join the guy afterwards though, so Mirai supposed she must not have been too offended.

Mirai flipped through the recipes a bit more before settling on one - a recipe for shortbread cookies. One that was both tasty and extremely simple. She ran her finger over the page, checking the list of ingredients against the supplies set out on a nearby table. Satisfied that everything she needed for the recipe was on the table there, she went to fetch a mixing bowl to get started on the recipe.

Mika really wanted to improve her cooking. Her failure to be of assistance in the last work project of the Home Ec. club left her embarrassed to say the least. Mika hatred for failures on her part more so than her boiling feelings toward her brother. Her thin frame peeked into the cooking room as everyone started to slowly filter in with sentry red aprons hovering around the other students as some form of helicopter parenting. A welcome addition than last time she had someone help her only to turn into a lecture of something much more complicated.

I will make something this time. Mika reaffirmed with herself as she washed her hands and put in an apron to try the candy section. It shouldn't be too hard. Just melted down sugars reshaped. Mika could try working on that and if they turn out good then she'll try something more complex; cookies. Mika silently psyched herself up by balling her hands into doll like fists as she arrived at the station. Containers for sugar, flavoring syrups, and thermometers?! The sight of it made her skeptical on what they were going to make.

"Miss, I suggest you pick out a recipe," a red apron senior advised. "If you need help on picking one, I can help on this as well." They offered with some idea of Mika's skills. They were part of the bento crafting the previous year and had a general idea of how ill experienced Mika is. The girl mostly did come to the club to be a clothing model and did little outside of the sewing department. The senior picked out a card and handed it to Mika with a smirk on their face. "This should be a starter. Even a five year old can make this one." They jeered before leaving to check on the cake side.

Mika took the card with an annoyed look and read off the top. Rock candy? Candied rocks? Challenge accepted.
