    BO-BO-BO-BOOOM!

    “EhhhhhhHH?!” With one sudden and shocking moment Nymara found herself rushing back to reality, her head violently jolting from the rocky ground it had been resting upon! “WhO THE HEL- Ohhh cool!” Her speech stumbled as her ruby gaze met the colorful sky above her! Explosions of fire in all sorts of colored designs danced against the backdrop of the stars and moon of the early evening. Seems someone was celebrating a bit prematurely. Yawning rather loudly Nymara hastily tried to get back to her feet, nearly falling multiple times before regaining her balance. The fogginess in her head made it somewhat of an obstacle, but one she powered through nonetheless! “Brp! I’m gonna tip tha- *hic* forest gnome AMAzingly whenever I see 'em around again… hrmm.. That stuff was awesome!” Nymara giggled to herself as she stepped over the roots of the nearby trees. The forests east of Magnolia seemed rather quiet tonight in comparison to the lively city. Perhaps the animals cared little for the noise, retiring to their dens to try and escape the sound of the human celebrations. Whatever the reason, Nymara was too drunk to notice, her mind gearing her straight toward the source of the colorful fireworks. Despite her current state, the firebrand knew exactly what this festival was about. While growing up Vulcanis had never made a point to celebrate the passing of the years, however, Nymara’s time alone travelling the continent had taught her that the people of this land enjoyed it with great eagerness! And from what Nymara had learned about these celebrations, she was most certainly a fan. It was a time for eating and drinking and fireworks! What wasn’t there to love? Not to mention Nymara was pretty sure she had heard about some games being set up within the town. She was going to make the most of the night before the year was up! And she knew exactly who to bother to help make that happen, but first, she needed to make a few stops!

    Grunting with strain Nymara nearly tripped when she finally emerged from the trees of the woods bordering town, her hair long and messy, filled with twigs and leaves along with her dirtied white jacket which appeared to be caked in mud. Despite it, all Nymara continued forth, determined to make it to the guild hall! The firebrand didn’t really stick out from the crowds, the streets of Magnolia bustling with excitement as the new years festival seemed to be in full swing! And more than a few of them swimming in drinks just like the girl! The strong aromas wafting through the roads were more than enough to invite distraction, but Nymara had to remain focused! Akeya had done well to teach Nymara to keep her habits in check and her scattered brain together, she was not going to disappoint her now!

    Nymara continued to stumble through the streets until the furious flapping of wings erupted from somewhere behind her and the girl turned to bear witness to an armoured exceed flying straight towards her! “AUGH!” Nymara yelped, barely ducking just as Lucky zoomed past her! “Wh- Hey what’s the big idea!?” She called out, her eyes trailing the flying cat as it circled in the air above. The people in the street around gave the girl a few odd stares at this sudden outburst, their eyes only continued to linger due to how dirty her attire appeared to be. “Testing your reflexes my lady!” The feline yelled above the wind before descending onto a nearby lamppost. With a paw, he lifted the metal faceplate and revealed a wide grin. “I could tell you have already engaged in your favorite hobby, so I wanted to prove a point. Though it seems your training is getting better, even when you are completely drunk you have the senses to dodge.” Lucky said. Nymara dusted off her shoulder with a grumble. “Don’t think it takes much thinkin’ to duck from the flying cat.”
    “Perhaps my test was too light then! Shall we try something harder?”
    “Fly at me again and your wings will catch fire!”
    “Tsk.. Tsk.. Disappointing. Also you look absolutely dreadful, did you fight the forest itself?”
    “CAN IT CAT!”

    Nymara snorted before her mind remembered what she was doing before being ambushed by her own sworn protector! “Lucky! Come with me! It’s time I test YOU!” She said with a sly grin. Something that made Lucky feel internally nervous. “And trust me, Akemi is gonna LOOVE it!” Nymara laughed. Now he was externally nervous, his head tilting with concern. “What exactly has your troubled mind thought of now?” He’d ask. Nymara’s fanged grin didn’t cease, she simply continued trudging along. “Your silence does little to comfort me, my lady. Can I please be informed of what it is you’re planning?” The feline knight would ask, slowly trailing the girl as she pushed her way through the cramped streets.

    Eventually, Nymara led them to a large booth that was absolutely crowded with people. Sure enough, loud explosions in the sky were the reason, as fireworks appeared to be launched directly from this tent! Nymara didn’t stop, moving her way through the sea of people while Lucky floated above, keeping a careful eye on her movements. He surely hoped whatever it was she was doing wouldn’t upset the twilight dragon, though with Nymara nothing was ever certain. Soon enough the firebrand had made it to the edge of the large tent, slowly moving towards the back. “My lady, I don’t think they would appreciate us being back here.” Lucky would continue to warn, though it seemed it was falling on deaf ears. Soon enough Nymara got on her stomach and reached underneath the tent flap! Searching for something. Before Lucky could even ask Nymara’s face lit up as she found what she was looking for, pulling out a rather long firework! “Nymara I don’t think-” He was cut short as the girl thrust the firework straight at him! Instinct kicked in and Lucky caught it, holding it awkwardly with both paws. “Wh- What…?” He began to ask, confused for a moment before Nymara laughed! “Go you bufoon! Fly away with it!” He did not sign on to be a thief! “Hey! What’s that cat doin’ with the fireworks!? You can’t steal those!” Someone yelled out of Nymara’s view, but thanks to Lucky’s position in the air, he was seen by everyone! “'somebody knock em down!”
    “N- No! W- Wait, I don't want the fireworks!” He tried to protest, but soon some of the more drunk partiers started to throw their garbage at him! Annoyed, the exceed quickly ascended into the air, not even realizing he was still holding onto the firework as he fled the scene!

    Lucky landed next to the guild hall panting heavily as he dropped the firework. What was that drunkard thinking about getting him to steal like that! Honestly, there were some things a Knight should NEVER do! “Ehehe! He made it!” A familiar laugh sounded behind the exceed, Lucky turning to give Nymara a long deathly stare. “Awe don’t be so glum kitten! Your distraction worked!” His scowl faded for a moment. “Distraction?”
    “Yeah! So I could get the *real* fireworks!” That’s when Lucky realized Nymara had been holding her hands behind her back. “Oh for the love of- you did no-”
    “BEHOLD!” With a quick motion Nymara revealed a huge stack of differently designed fireworks, bearing so many different shapes and colors! “I was BAIT???!”
    “No, you were essential!”
    “What’s the difference?!”
    “Why does it matter, my plan worked!”
    “That isn’t the point!”

    Their argument dragged on until Nymara turned her attention to the guild hall beside them. Thankfully they appeared to be in the right spot. “Okay… Okay we need to position ourselves so she will see us!” Lucky looked up with a sigh. “If you wanted to ask Akemi to join you for the festivities you could have done just that! Why the fireworks?” Nymara seemed too distracted to even answer, her face brightening up when she seemed to find the right spot. The Library was her favourite spot to be Nymara had learned, but if the Twilight Dragon was also in her home in fairy hills, then these should surely get her attention as well. Of course, it wasn’t only Akemi’s attention she would gain with this display, though that fact seemed to be of little consequence for the firebrand. “Alright, Let’s light em up!”

    The night sky directly above the guild hall violently erupted in a myriad of different coloured explosions, rocking the air with an intense booming noise that was impossible to miss! Nymara called out towards the window of the library within the guildhall, hoping Akemi’s habits hadn’t changed. “HEYYY! AKEMI!!!” The fire dragon yelled with exuberance! “THE YEAR IS ALMOST OVER!!” She called out as the sky continued to explode, a long streak of fire in the grass behind Nymara from where she had launched her firework show from.

    Another year was approaching its end, the final hours ticking away before it would be arbitrarily decided that a new year had begun. This tradition had remained steadfast for long enough that most people would consider it as solid a rule as anything, but even as young as she was Akemi still felt that such claims were only as strong as the institutions that defended them. That's not to say that she didn't recognise the usefulness of time tracking, but she didn't share the exuberance other people felt when it came to the end of the year.

    Still, she wasn't ignorant as to why people found these kinds of things important. It helped provide context and importance to their lives, it gave them things to look forward to and remember fondly. As an existential nihilist Akemi firmly believed that the only importance that existed was what you assigned for yourself, so these kinds of celebrations were agreements inside communities to assign importance to the same moments in time so people could enjoy them together.

    But understanding why people found these things important wasn't the same as agreeing with them, which was why Akemi was inside Fairy Tail's library, her second home in the guild, doing research while doing her best to ignore all the sounds coming through the windows. Sometimes having sharp senses could be a real bother, and even if she could turn them off whenever she wanted she would have consider it the height of foolishness to blind and deafen herself just because her surroundings were a little bit annoying. After all, even within Fairy Tail danger could rear its ugly head when you least expected it.

    As for what she was researching... she'd managed to get her hands on some sensitive military data which had been acquired through the ongoing war efforts against the Iron Covenant. Of course, she didn't have the rank or position to legally acquire the data, so these were acquired through less than legal means, although she was pretty confident that nobody would ever realise that these copies existed and she would make sure they were dealt with as soon as she'd memorised the contents. If she got caught with these in her possession most likely the leaders of Bellum's military would be less than happy.

    The war was a messy affair so far, much messier than anyone had anticipated. Due to Pergrande's isolationist attitude in recent history, the rest of the continent had forgotten that at one point Pergrande had been poised to dominate the entire landmass before a series of unexplained events had interfered. The Pergrande of the modern age wasn't exactly the same, but the military force they'd been building up had surpassed expectations.

    One of the reasons for that was their usage of oblivium, the mysterious and ominous metal that was nearly impervious to magic of any kind by disrupting the energies maintaining these physics-defying abilities. However, another factor was an absurd overrepresentation of espers within Pergrande's army. Espers were known to exist, people who could manipulate their surroundings through force of will without relying on magic, but for the most part their abilities were very limited. Pergrande, known for its distaste of magic after blaming mages for the incident that prevented continental domination, had apparently focused on nurturing psionic abilities within their territory, and the result was that their soldiers possessed abilities on par with those of mages. Their versatility was lacking, but these espers displayed a pragmatic efficiency that Akemi found more impressive than the flashy techniques used by most mages.

    But that just meant that finding a way to deal with them was a top priority. Since they didn't use magic they were difficult to detect, and the soldiers with psionic abilities often also had oblivium equipment, meaning that alongside the element of surprise they also had the advantage that they were significantly more resistant to magic than any human had any right to be. Given that Pergrande had already built up its army in preparation for this war destroying the supplies would have limited effect unless they managed to drag out this war... Not to mention that such a task was easier said than done. Infiltrating Pergrande could very well be a suicide mission.

    Akemi was pondering all of this when suddenly the sounds from outside became a lot louder, and this time there was also a voice she recognised instantly, in part because it called out her name. Very few people bothered to seek out the assassin unless they really needed something from her. Mura appeared comfortable enough to approach her, and then there was...

    With a sigh, Akemi dismissed the documents into the shadows, where they disappeared to a place where she wouldn't have to worry about anyone finding them. She'd still have to destroy them in due time, but now that her apprentice had shown up it wasn't like she'd be able to focus on them. Once Nymara wanted your attention the only paths forward were to either answer her call or go to great lengths to try and lose her. While the latter was definitely an option Akemi would rather not antagonise the firebrand too much: best case scenario she'd just have to put up with Nymara being annoyed at her afterwards, worst case scenario Nymara would stop listening to her when Akemi needed something.

    Given how loud Nymara was shouting Akemi decided to quickly leave the library before her apprentice decided to force her way in from the outside or something. Getting up from her seat Akemi's form shimmered, darkening and turning into a shadow that merged with the shadow of her chair and disappeared. Moments after Nymara's shadow darkened, Akemi's form rising up as if she was emerging from a hole in the ground.

    "I'm aware that the year's about to end, but what are you doing?" She looked at Nymara, then at the fireworks filling the sky above the guild hall. Those hadn't been there before Nymara's arrival, which meant they were most likely her doing. Which just led to the question of where the firebrand had acquired such an abundance of fireworks. "It's a good thing that everyone else is also setting those things off, but be careful that you don't start a fire."

    The people of Magnolia were smart enough that their houses were designed to be very sturdy, especially after a good portion of the town had been demolished recently thanks to the sudden attack of a dark guild. Nevertheless, fireworks were already likely to start fires without someone like Nymara liberally applying her own restless flames.

    Akemi nodded towards Lucky, who was also present, and from the looks of it wasn't too happy with Nymara at the moment. Not entirely unusual, although if the assassin was reading the cat correctly he was currently annoyed about a recent development rather than his usual state of borderline exasperation. Nymara was certainly an interesting companion, but for anyone who appreciated their peace and quiet she could also be very taxing.

    With a wave of her hand Akemi smothered the flames that Nymara had used to ignite the fireworks, the shadows of the grass around the fire rising up to swallow the orange tongues and leaving behind only a burned trail. With that hazard out of the way she folded her arms, seizing Nymara up. Her nose twitched as she smelled the familiar scent of alcohol, which explained why Nymara was being so loud. Frowning at her apprentice the disguised twilight dragoness looked at her for several seconds before sighing.

    "I'm guessing that you want to join the festivities and that I'm supposed to come along with you." It wasn't exactly a huge leap in logic: there was a celebration happening, Nymara was calling for Akemi to call out, and the firebrand had a history of trying to get her mentor involved in such events. While Akemi rarely showed initiative for such activities herself she hadn't refused Nymara's invitations so far, so if she now had to celebrate the end of the year with the other female slayer as well she would just resign herself to it and try to enjoy it as well.

    Lucky would be lying to himself if the said he wasn’t concerned about how Akemi may react to Nymara’s rather explosive entrance, though honestly he probably shouldn’t have expected anything else. The girl was prone to making obnoxious events the symbol of her coming, something many of the other members of the guild and even citizens of Magnolia had come to understand by now. This is just another side effect of living in a town that housed one of the most popular wizarding guilds! He had a conversation about this particular topic once already with the twilight dragon back during the spring festival, though that didn’t always make it any easier to believe people would always put up with this. At least Nymara was enjoying herself, even if Lucky felt rather deflated from trying to curb her antics. “Honestly I don’t even understand why I try with you any longer. I have yet to meet someone as stubborn or insistent enough on staying in their destructive ways.” The exceed would grumble, though it was obvious Nymara didn’t seem to pay too much mind to his comments.

    As the sky above continued to explode with different colors Nymara patiently waited for Akemi to open up one of the windows on the side of the building and see her, though the longer Nymara waited it became increasingly clear that wasn’t going to happen. Lucky almost snickered when the thought crossed his mind that Akemi may not even be in the guildhall, or perhaps not even in town for that matter! That would’ve made Nymara’s entire display worthless, aside from any of the bystanders that bear witness to it. Not her intended targets, though the feline knight was certain that Nymara was going to hear all about her firework show right next to the guildhall from many other members. Some of which were likely to be more irritated than others, despite it being the New Year's Festival! However Lucky would begin to notice something that Nymara seemed to have missed, and that was her shadow had begun to darken…

    “AEh?!” Nymara’s spine froze the second the the calm yet stern voice of her mentor sounded directly behind her. How did she not see that coming?! The firebrand would instantly turn to face Akemi with a half-cocked smile as tried to recover from the surprise entrance. “A- Akemi! You heard me! Did you like the fireworks? I got a whole assortment just to show you!” Nymara would continue as the sky above them would continue to spark and explode from the late burners in the air. Lucky would walk up and politely bow his head to the twilight dragon. “My lady, I hope you had a pleasant evening before Nymara became determined to interrupt it.” He would say with a snarky tone towards the firebrand. He was obviously still miffed about being used as bait for Nymara’s scheme and he wasn’t afraid to let her know. The firebrand was now too excited to see her mentor to really pay any mind to the exceed’s remarks, opting to instead reply to the twilight dragon. “Uhh.. Y- yeah, don’t worry I got it all under control!” She’d respond as Lucky rolled his eyes, staring at the streak of fire in the grass shortly before Akemi’s magic once again appeared from the darkness and swallowed them up.

    Any other time the twilight dragon stopped to stare and judge Nymara she was usually clever enough to take the hint and change whatever it was she was doing, only when Nymara was swimming with the drinks all forms of logic seemed to leap out of the window did with her. Finally, Akemi broke the silence and deduced the exact reason why Nymara had started this whole firework show. “YEAH! You’re smart! A- And if you liked these fireworks there’s even MORE in town! Did you see many or were you inside all day???” She would ask, even drunk Nymara knew her mentor’s tendencies better than most. It would not have surprised her in the slightest if Akemi had spent her day in the guildhall’s library like she had done so on many other days. “There’s so much food and games! You can spare a few hours before midnight, yeah?” She would ask in a more hopeful tone. Of course, Nymara was fully capable of making use out of all the drinks and food on her own with Lucky, but she couldn’t deny that without Akemi she felt somewhat sad. Nymara couldn’t lie about the fact that since she had joined the guild Akemi had been her close friend and teacher. Putting up with the fire slayer’s constant destructive tendencies and her rather loud and outgoing personality was an achievement on its own, but to take the extra step to try and train and teach Nymara was certainly an action worth the respect and admiration Nymara had for her mentor. There was also another feeling that Nymara couldn’t quite describe. A fluttering in her chest and a change in her mood whenever she saw the twilight dragon, it made Nymara almost forget about her problems and instead she’d have the desire to just spend time with her mentor.

    “Let’s just hope the mob you created has calmed down by now..” Lucky would say as Nymara suggested they go back into town to view more of the fireworks. “Well they were after you, not me!” Nymara reminded him, the feline knight opened his mouth to retaliate but simply inclined to scoff, determining it wasn’t worth arguing with the drunk slayer. “How do you usually celebrate the new year?? Do you read about the big parties and the awesome fireworks in your books and scrolls??” Nymara would snicker, obviously finding herself funnier than anyone else did. Despite her joking tone though Nymara found herself genuinely curious. Like a great deal of many other things, Akemi had kept much information about herself secret and hidden. Nymara wondered if she would often celebrate events with others before the firebrand had joined the guild, or rather spend her time in the library? It was also likely that Akemi simply didn’t care enough about these celebrations to get involved, which was a believable scenario in Nymara’s mind.

    Given how many times Akemi had already shown up behind Nymara unannounced she would have thought that the fire slayer would have gotten used to the experience, but somehow every single time her apprentice would still react as if it was the very first time the assassin did it. It actually made Akemi worry a bit: was it simply Nymara's energetic self keeping her from paying attention, or did she have learning issues? Most of their training revolved around practical lessons, as Akemi was more focused on making Nymara a competent combatant and magic user than providing her with general education, but as a rule she could tell in advance when Nymara would have difficulty with a lesson, and it was almost always when the lesson involved a lot of theoretics.

    Well, perhaps she shouldn't ponder it for too long. If it remained a problem she could track down a healer capable of checking Nymara's mind to see if she had any issues that needed fixing, but for now, she'd just raise an eyebrow as Nymara spun around and tried to pretend that she hadn't been shocked out of her skull. "I would have to be deaf to not hear you." She replied dryly to what most likely had been a rhetorical question. She sniffed as she caught the scent of alcohol coming from Nymara, telling her all that she needed to know about her apprentice's current state. "Granted, with all the explosions up in the sky I can't blame you for yelling." The fireworks maybe pretty, but they were also very noisy. Even without the drink Nymara would have been justified in speaking loudly if she wanted to be heard through the window this evening.

    As usual, Lucky's attitude was far more respectful. While Akemi still had a hard time taking him seriously she had to admit that his demeanour was quite endearing: careful with his words, cautious with his actions, and overall unlikely to cause her any trouble. While she was almost psychopathically disinclined towards spending time with others of her own volition she didn't mind people approaching her as long as they didn't waste time with frivolous subjects or behaved like fools.

    She did make an exception for Nymara on those fronts. She'd taken the firebrand as her apprentice because she saw promise in the girl, as energetic and reckless as she was, and beyond that putting up with Nymara's antics was worth it for the benefits. "That said, try to keep your yelling for appropriate moments." She smirked as she said that before her expression turned neutral once more. Turning her golden gaze upwards she watched the fireworks that Nymara had supposedly prepared for her. There was certainly an abundance, but unsurprisingly the display was a bit messy. "It's certainly flashy." She bit back another snarky remark. As much as she enjoyed dry commentary she didn't want every word that came out of her mouth to be belittling. That could never end well.

    "As for my evening, there wasn't anything remarkable about it." Studying and pondering in the library was something she did a lot, so today was the same as usual in that aspect. Ignoring all the noise that was happening outside was the main deviation.

    Of course, that part of the evening had now come to an end as the noise had come to her personally in the form of a drunken Nymara, who could give the rest of the city a run for their money when she got going. The assassin kept her arms folded as Nymara tried to entice her with fireworks (did she think that would work?), only relaxing a little once the firebrand more or less requested for her to join herself and the exceed for the festivities. "I don't think I'm making any breakthroughs today, so yes, I can spare the hours." Figuring out how to counter the espers and their oblivium was a long-term project: their ability to hide from magic detection and their ability to negate magic on a fundamental level meant that most tricks wouldn't work.

    The fact that Nymara sounded so hopeful did intrigue her. Nymara was always enthusiastic, but the way she was talking made it clear that she was specifically hoping for Akemi's presence, rather than just inviting any of her friends along. Ever since the two of them had gone undercover on that job together the redhaired slayer had been a tad more attached than before. Akemi smirked to herself as she thought about it: it looked like some of her efforts were bearing fruit.

    Lucky's casual comment about a mob did halt Akemi as she raised both eyebrows, looking at Lucky and then at Nymara. She didn't say anything, waiting for her apprentice to inevitably incriminate herself by protesting Lucky's words in a manner which told the twilight dragoness what had happened. Unfortunately, it seemed like this time around Lucky refrained from prolonging the argument, leaving many a detail untouched. "Now why would there be a mob chasing sir Lucky?" She idly mused to herself.

    Nymara's comment earned her a look, following by Akemi mentioning for them to start moving. "If you want to enjoy the New Years together we better start moving, or we'll spend the entire evening here talking about whatever the two of you have been up to." Once they were walking the raven-haired Ace would reply to Nymara's question. "I usually don't pay much attention to it. If I'm feeling particularly thoughtful I'll consider all the progress made in the last year and priorities for the next." It wasn't something as ritualistic as the new years resolutions many people made, but it paid to look back at the past and use what you've learned as a stepping stone for the future.

    "As for you, I imagine that you usually spend it feasting and drinking." She looked over her shoulder at the fireworks that Nymara had lit up. Given that the slayer had ignited the fuses without much of a thought the collection was burning up quickly. "On a related note, if you really wanted to make fireworks you could learn to make themselves. It's all fire in the end." She turned her gaze back at Nymara. "Of course, patterns and colours do require a lot of control, so maybe it's something we can aim for you to achieve next year."

    Around the three of them the city of Magnolia continued its festivities unabated. Just like the guild headquartered in the settlement, the people were eager to cut loose. This wasn't a town where everyone would quietly spend their time with friends and family. No, people were out there on the streets, friends meeting up to head to pubs and friends setting off fireworks into the sky hours before midnight would strike. If there was one thing that you could be certain of in Magnolia it was that it wasn't a boring place.

    Akemi, however, was more interested in the redhead next to her. She didn't care much for the smell of alcohol, but other than that she quite appreciated Nymara's presence. Her wildness could be a problem at times (many times) but her energetic nature combined with her looks made watching her more enjoyable than Akemi would admit out loud. Of course, given that she didn't want the exceed to get any ideas she wouldn't stare at Nymara too long, instead throwing her gaze at their surroundings as well. "So did you have a specific game or feast in mind, or are we just going to walk around and see what the city has to offer until midnight?" Knowing Nymara there hadn't been a real plan in her mind beyond getting Akemi to come along with her.

    Well, Akemi didn’t appear to be angry so that was a good sign! Of course, that didn’t entirely mean she approved of what Nymara had just done, but it had accomplished its most basic function, to grab the twilight dragon’s attention! With that thought in mind, Nymara’s smile never ceased while Akemi conversed, even when she tried to warn the firebrand about the volume of her yelling, remarking that she should save her breath. Nymara’s head swam with some rather odd pictures after Akemi said that though the redness in her face quickly retreated as she realized it was her turn to speak. “R- Right! Some people are still trying to sleep tonight, heheh the losers that they are. It's almost new years, everyone should be out having fun!” Nymara would laugh, clearly enjoying herself. “It is a rather unfortunate time to try and find sleep. Especially, in this town it seems. Barring obnoxiously loud fire dragons the partying and fireworks will appear to keep going until dawn.” Lucky would chime in with a flick of his tail. When Akemi assessed the fireworks Nymara’s smile only grew into a wide fanged grin. “Y- Yeah! Definitely flashy, and bright too! I knew you’d love em!” She’d say again, the meaning of Akemi’s comment clearly flying over the drunk slayer’s head.

    The visual excitement on Nymara’s face only became more apparent when Akemi confirmed that she’d be joining them for their celebrations! “Yeah! Awesome! I knew you’d come! Who wouldn’t be convinced after that amazing firework show. Come! Come, we have a lot of stuff we can do!” It may have been difficult to tell, though Nymara’s attitude had gotten even more chipper once the twilight dragon agreed to come. These events and parties were always fairly fun on their own, though when you had the right people accompanying you they could become utterly transformed! And the twilight dragon was certainly the right person in Nymara’s opinion. She had proven to be an excellent companion multiple times over for Nymara’s many fun excursions. Repeatedly she had agreed to join the firebrand on activities that didn’t really provide any benefit other than entertainment and this was something Nymara could truly appreciate about her. Perhaps Akemi secretly found these trips just as enjoyable as Nymara did, or maybe she simply participated out of kindness for the redhead who so desperately wanted to drag the twilight dragon along. Whatever the reason was in the end it didn’t really matter much to Nymara, she was just happy Akemi was here!

    Of course Akemi wasn’t going to let the comment about the mob slip by, causing the redhead to tense up slightly as she felt another twinge of regret. Lucky on the other hand only replied with a sly smirk, betraying Nymara’s nerves. “Those fireworks weren’t exactly.. Mine. Lucky helped my plan work, as equal partners!”
    “Don’t try and drag me down with you! I won’t fall for another trick!”
    “Oh c’mon.. It worked out perfectly!” Nymara protested with a smile before locking eyes with Akemi and quickly straightening her back and clearing her throat. “D- Don’t worry! I got the money to pay em back!” She would attempt to say before Akemi could remark back, hoping to stave off any judgment. A fool’s errand.

    Akemi eventually brought up the fact that they had been standing there for quite some time and needed to get a move on. Nymara couldn’t have agreed more! “Oh yeah! I said there was stuff to do! Right! Let’s get going then.” She’d proclaim happily as the girl swiftly spun around and began walking in the direction of the town. Lucky couldn’t help but perk an ear up at the twilight dragon’s response to Nymara’s question, finding himself genuinely curious about the answer. Just like most people the exceed didn’t know Akemi very well, so he couldn’t rightly guess what the twilight dragon did (if anything) during the festive seasons. That was of course until Nymara came along, now it seemed like the pair were constantly sticking close whenever another event or festival hit. His initial suspicions were confirmed when Akemi mentioned that she never paid much mind to the passing of the years, aside from using it as a timestamp to help improve her self progression. “Oh cool! Do you write everythin’ down on a list and check off the ones you completed? Sounds tedious, but I get it!” Nymara would hum as they continued through the streets. “Perhaps something you could try doing every now and again, my lady.” Lucky would remark. “It is good to have drive without someone else always doing the training.” The exceed continued. After all, Lucky hoped that Nymara’s focus on self improvement didn’t only exist when Akemi was trying to teach her.

    When Akemi attempted to ascertain what Nymara normally did this time of year she simply gave the twilight dragon a wink! “Spot on! Oh! And brawling! I bet they have some fights goin on somewhere round’ here! We should look around!” the firebrand would say, a light in her eyes as if she had just remembered something incredible. “MMmm.. Though I may need more liquor if I’m gonna get my knuckles bloody tonight.” She’d mumble, looking over her shoulder for a moment as her eyes scanned the nearby buildings (presumably for the nearest pub.) Her attention was snapped back to Akemi however when she made mention of the fireworks. “R- Really? That would be amazing! I could create them in all sorts of shapes and sizes, I’ll never have to ste- borrow any fireworks again!” She would say, clearly getting too excited over just a random idea that the twilight dragon had brought up. “Maybe a book or two in that library has somethin on firework magic.” She’d continue. That could definitely be her new year’s resolution!

    “I believe this was the extent of her foresight” Lucky would interject as Akemi questioned about the specifics of what they had been planning. “Of course if she did have anything else planned she failed to inform me.” He would say again, turning to face his companion. “Uhh.. yeah! Let’s go drink and then find a brawl to join in on! Do you box much?” She’d ask Akemi. Knowing full well how powerful Akemi could be Nymara was confident that the twilight dragon was also a demon at hand-to-hand combat! Maybe that’s why Nymara never saw her do it. Nobody could pose a challenge to one with that much power. “We got plenty of time before midnight! If our brains aren’t bashed in before then we can try some of the party games if you’d like!” Nymara gleamed. Lucky obviously couldn’t get much from a boxing match, though it was always entertaining to watch Nymara fight without her magic. A lot more fair as well. “This way! I’ll take you to the best watering hole in town!” Nymara yelled above the noise of the growing crowds.

    “HEY! NO! YOU! NO FIRE! NO FIRE GET OUT!”
    “Relax Cal I’m only here for the drinks!”
    “That’s what I’m worried about! I ain’t explaining to mr. rose why his wooden countertops are charred again!” A younger man behind the bar locked hateful eyes on Nymara as the trio came in through the door. Some other patrons gazed over from this outburst, though when they saw Nymnara they simply scoffed and went back to their drinks. The wooden floorboards creaked suddenly, as if a wild beast was trapped beneath. “Ohh, say you wouldn’t be hosting one of those fun little fights downstairs, would ya?”
    “If I said yes would you keep your presence cool?”
    “AhA! Let’s go Akemi! Oh! And what do ya drink?” She would attempt to ask Akemi, though even Nymara knew she was unlikely to have anything aside from maybe water. “And don’t worry, I’m buying!”

    Akemi had wondered if Nymara would realise what the assassin was talking about, given that the firebrand could have a hard time catching any clues which weren't so unsubtle as to practically smack her in the face. From her perspective it wasn't that Nymara was unintelligent: she just tended to approach life in her own way, and it could take some real yanking to make her change tracks.

    But this time around it looked like the assassin's words had hit the mark, which meant she got to enjoy the sight of Nymara's face turning red for reasons unrelated to her alcohol intake. Her hotheaded apprentice really was cute when caught off-guard, and Akemi permitted herself a light smirk as the other female slayer tried to regain her composure.

    "I don't envy those who were planning to rest tonight, or those who have to get up early tomorrow." She shook her head as Nymara seemed to almost enjoy the idea of keeping others awake. "Still, there's measures they can take to ignore most of the celebrations, as long as nobody starts destroying any houses. On that note, I don't want to get in the way of your fun but if you start wrecking the place I'll have to take action." It was one thing to enjoy new years, another to completely lose all consideration for others. Not that Akemi was truly considerate: she just wanted to avoid getting into more trouble than she could handle.

    With Nymara completely missing the point of Akemi's comment regarding the fireworks it looked like it was time for them to head out into the city, to partake in whatever festivities they had prepared. Given that this was Magnolia Akemi could only assume that they had pretty much every type of festivity you could imagine laid out throughout the streets, as New Years only came around once a year. "You think anyone could just bribe me with some fireworks to come out?" She raised an eyebrow as she folded her arms, subjecting Nymara to one of her stares. "I assure you that if some random sod had tried this I'd have sent them packing." She went along with Nymara's ideas because Nymara was her apprentice, as well as someone Akemi took a personal interest in. She wasn't about to just go and explain in detail that Nymara was special, but she figured that even the fire slayer could figure out that Akemi was more accommodating towards her than others.

    "...It's a bad day for your reputation when you let yourself get outsmarted by her. Especially when she's inebriated." That comment was, surprisingly, directed at Lucky instead of Nymara, the assassin reminding the exceed who exactly it was that had managed to rope him into trouble. Nymara might not be unintelligent in Akemi's eyes, but she wasn't exactly cunning either. "It's too late to put the fireworks back in their boxes and return them, but first thing tomorrow morning we pay a visit to those you took them from so you can compensate them." While she did admonish Nymara she wasn't upset or bothered, in part because she wasn't surprised and in part because she didn't really care much. All that really mattered was maintaining a peaceful relationship with the city and its inhabitants, but Akemi's tone remained mild.

    As they began to move towards the city the sounds of celebration became louder. For a human it would already have been quite noisy, with fireworks going up in the air and thousands of people laughing, talking, and yelling, some indoors but many also outside. For a slayer (or a dragon) it was a cacophony, and if it wasn't for the fact that Akemi was already used to such things she might have found herself overwhelmed. As it was she just sighed to herself as her head was filled with information about everyone in Magnolia, from the bartenders who were making bank to the professional fireworks experts who were setting up their grand displays that would make personal shoot-offs look tame in comparison. Unavoidably there was also trouble, with people getting drunk and shouting at one another, but most people were clearly having a good time.

    Akemi personally didn't care much for such communal mindsets, but she couldn't deny its advantages. At least here in Magnolia everyone was empathic and cooperative enough that anyone got to enjoy tonight as long as they were willing to step forward and join the party.

    "I wouldn't call it a list, no." She replied to Nymara's suggestion. "In the grand scheme of things a year might seem short, but it's still many days in which things can happen. Aside from some overarching goals I don't try to plan ahead for a whole year." This year war had broken out, one that threatened to consume the whole of Ishgar. It might not be something that happened every year, but it was a good example why planning ahead too much might leave you blindsided by unexpected developments. "I just look back at what has happened throughout the year. And as Sir Lucky has already pointed out, that's something you could do as well."

    As Nymara suggested joining a fight Akemi tilted her head. "I'm not hearing any big fights yet. You'll have to wait until deeper in the night when all the children have gone to bed I think." And as she'd mentioned before, if Nymara actually started wrecking the place the twilight dragoness wasn't going to stand and watch it happen. "I won't stop you from getting in a fight, but as I've mentioned before you can't go around destroying the place." There were several pubs close to the guild hall (for obvious reasons), but most of the buildings in this area were either shops or more expensive homes owned by individuals who not only could afford to live here but also have their property rebuilt on a semi-regular basis. The kinds of pubs where brawls were common would be found closer to the edge of the city.

    At least her companion was interested in the idea of creating fireworks. "Using fire magic to create fireworks is one of the more popular applications." The assassin remarked. "Most people don't learn magic to fight bandits and monsters, after all. If you want to read books on how to do it I can find you plenty: fire magic is common even if slayer magic isn't." Slayer magic had some unique properties, but in many ways it was very similar to standard elemental magic. Which made sense, since it was just elemental magic used by dragons and other powerful entities.

    "I don't make a habit of getting into fights for the fun of it, no." She remarked dryly as Nymara asked her whether she boxed. "But if that's how you want to spend the evening..." She resisted the urge to facepalm. Nymara really took advantage of her generosity, even if the firebrand might not even realise it. "Let's go take a look at this watering hole of yours."

    Unsurprisingly, the pub that Nymara had chosen was familiar enough with her that the bartender immediately shouted at the firebrand to get out, confirming Akemi's suspicions. The pub was crowded, with many people enjoying their drinks, their food, and the company of friends and acquaintances. But from the sounds of it this place was also familiar enough with brawls that everything was designed to be able to take a beating, even if Nymara's flames fell outside expectations. "I don't drink usually, but if you really want to you can just buy me whatever you're getting." Akemi almost never got drunk, but she figured that a mild buzz might make it easier to go along with Nymara's plans for the evening. "And no fire when you're punching people out." Even without her flames Nymara was perfectly capable of reducing this building to rubble, but at least restricting her to using her fists made such escalation less likely to occur. "And while I realise this is a tall order when you're drunk, try to avoid breaking any limbs."

    Her sharp ears had already picked up on the fighting club down below, and from what she could tell they did have a healer on standby in case of serious injury. Still, better to end the night with zero incapacitating injuries if it was possible, and it might help Nymara remain more focused if Akemi told her to avoid going overboard.

    More than a few times the sky above streaked with the familiar colours and sounds of the flashing fireworks, lighting up the town for several flashes before the street lanterns resumed the task. Thankfully Akemi seemed to agree with Nymara’s assessment for the most part, though she made it clear that the firebrand if her habits escalated into accidental destruction she’d need to intervene. “Seems rather fair, don’t you think?” Lucky would nod, agreeing with the twilight dragon’s comment. Nymara quickly nodded, giving the impression she understood Akemi quite well. “L- Look I can control myself when I need too! My amazing teacher taught me everything there is about controlling my own fire.” Nymara would say with a nervous grin, though her response wasn’t entirely a lie. Despite her current mental state Nymara hadn’t learned nothing from all her time training under Akemi. If she had still been a lone wizard by now who knows how much farther her fire could have spread? Now though, with some refining and hard work thanks to her mentor Nymara figured she had a much stronger hold over her own flames now!

    As the three of them continued to wander through the streets Akemi brought up a point Lucky had tried to make earlier, causing the feline to flick his ear in anticipation for Nymara’s response. Unfortunately it appeared as though Akemi wasn’t as impressed with her firework show as she had hoped, though that wasn’t enough to dampen Nymara’s spirits! Especially when Akemi finished speaking, causing Nymara to quickly respond. “Well I guess It’s great that I’m not just a random sod! Something I was counting on!” She snickered, hinting that she could have guessed what Akemi’s reaction would have been if most other people had tried the same trick on her. Exactly what the Twilight Dragon had stated. “Or perhaps your fondness for Lady Akemi blinds you from the reality of your actions?” Lucky would chirp up, causing another odd look from Nymara as her face flushed with colour. “Well blinded isn’t the word I would exactly use…” She would stammer slightly, obviously not sure how to respond to the exceed’s observation. Not that it mattered much to Lucky though, with a smirk he had seemed to get all the info he wanted from that interaction. Nymara likewise had started to wonder if there was any shred of truth to what he was saying, though her mind was a jumbled mess at the moment.

    When the truth about Nymara’s firework escapade inevitably came out the firebrand had tensed up, preparing for another lecture from the twilight dragon. Though she surprisingly redirected her comments towards Lucky. The feline knight couldn’t help but agree with Akemi, though that didn’t make the experience feel any less shameful. “It certainly wasn’t my proudest moment. Though it was a lesson learned, considering.” He would admit as his ears lowered slightly in defeat, cringing at the memory. The attention wasn’t on the exceed for long though, and Akemi was quick to remind Nymara that she needed to fix this problem quickly. “O- Of course! I’ll go straight back to the tent the second the sun touches it!” She would say, attempting to reassure her mentor that the firebrand didn’t intend on just abandoning the problem.

    Nymara seemed almost too distracted by all the sights and sounds around them while the conversation continued about new goals for the new year, despite the fact that the firebrand had been the one who asked Akemi about her end of the year habits. Though she tended to agree with Lucky on the fact that Nymara should take a crack at looking over her own skills and flaws over the past year and try to work on them. “Indeed, an entire year is a lot of time to plan for. Too much can happen in such a large space, thus making sure you can adapt quickly is key.” Lucky would say, reinforcing Akemi’s comments even if Nymara wasn’t receiving all of it at the current moment. “Eh, why not? How hard could it be anyways?” Nymara would say, seemingly giving her approval for the idea, though it was quite difficult to tell in her current state.

    While the twilight dragon didn’t exactly seem thrilled with Nymara’s idea to pass the time, she didn’t put a stop to it! Of course she did remind the fire dragon about her comments earlier, causing Nymara to nod quickly! “Ha! Don’t worry! These fights aren’t like the wizard battles we get into on jobs, they’re much more personal!” She’d say with a grin, causing Lucky to sigh as she missed the point once again. Thankfully this happened to be a hobby of Nymara’s so she had learned how to curb her magic mid match… most of the time. When Akemi continued to speak about the fireworks Nymara appeared to be genuinely interested, the cogs within her mind turning with ideas! Akemi was quite knowledgeable about a variety of things as Nymara had come to learn from her, though even still it surprised Nymara just how smart she was! Of course it didn’t exactly take an expert to deduce that fire wizards could create their own fireworks, though the idea had yet to cross Nymara’s mind until now! “You’re right! Some people use magic for all sorts of things! Oh, I wonder how a magical firework would work against a monster! Wait, that's already just a projectile spell…” Nymara trailed off, obviously lost in her own thoughts. “Ya think one of the books in your library has more info!? I’d love to look!”
    “I believe the guild’s library would have info on many magical subjects, it’s likely something could be found.” Lucky would interject. The sooner Nymara became more interested in making her own fireworks instead of stealing other people's, the better.

    “Ha! Relax! I won’t need fire to beat these fools!” Nymara gloated as Akemi tried to remind her not to go overboard in her fun "And the only thing breaking today is gonna be their pride!" A few pints later Nymara was even more riled up than before! Though Akemi seemed somewhat reluctant to go, Nymara greatly appreciated the fact that she was willing to play along! Even if the red-head had a difficult time expressing that while her head was reeling. “Do you bet at all?” Lucky mused aloud as he witnessed a small gathering of people crowding a makeshift stand in the corner of the basement, evidently placing their stakes on the contestants. While gambling in a den like this was normally something Lucky would never dream of, he did chuckle at the thought of profiting from Nymara’s gains, or her humorous downfall. “Well, either way the night is still young. I’m sure once Lady Nymara has had enough of her teeth knocked out we can move on to more decent places…” He would finish, scrunching his feline nose. It wasn’t the most sanitary down here.

    Bruised knuckles, a bloodied nose, and some slight swelling later Nymara found herself staring down another foe. The rounds had gone by so quickly in her mind, yet she had survived this long! Something a few of the regulars seemed surprised to see given how her past performances had been. Yet while she was drunk Nymara still seemed to remain in control and keep her composure, a far cry from her usual fighting style of old. A marked improvement that resulted in the firebrand being much more agile and clever with her strikes. Despite the bruises Nymara also appeared to be in much better shape than she would normally be after these many rounds. Akemi’s training was really paying off, even if it wasn’t always in ways the twilight dragon had been expecting. “C’mon ya big reptile! I’ve fought bigger lizards than you!” Nymara goaded her bloodied opponent, what appeared to be a large crocodile man! Fiore was certainly full of strange creatures, though by this point Nymara had gotten quite used to it. With a furious charge Nymara’s bruised lip smirked, the crocodile attempting to use his longer reach to nab the girl where she stood! By this point he had been disorientated enough to allow the girl a quick sidestep, quickly delivering three punches in quick succession to his large scaled ribcage! The lizard roared in pain before swinging his bulky arm around, attempting to closeline the girl to the ground! With more quick reaction time Nymara instantly ducked underneath the arm, punching the crocodile once straight in the stomach before spinning around the reptile’s form just as he attempted to face her again, putting Nymara straight behind his back! In that split second of confusion the girl released another flurry of punches straight along the spine of the crocodile, instantly causing him to tense up and yelled in anger. No matter how hard he tried, Nymara seemed to be too quick for him to keep up with! With a thunderous splash the crocodile fell to the muddied ground, causing an eruption of noise throughout the room. Nymara however only eagerly looked for Akemi wherever she may be in the crowds, as if ignoring the people cheering and booing alike. “I see many people weren’t expecting these results, and now see their purses lighter for it.” Lucky snickered as he noticed some of the more irritated watchers.

    Stumbling to the arena’s edge Nymara’s smile never faded, even if she looked even more of a mess than before. Thankfully she had the sense to remove  her coat before the fight, opting for just her black vest for more freedom. “Did you see that! I actually smoked em! And not literally this time!” Nymara would say eagerly, her tone suggesting she couldn’t believe it herself. “This place was always a tough nut to crack, I hadn’t ever made it past the third round before!” She’d say, reminiscing on older days. “Man, next year has a lot to live up to now! And a lot of that is thanks to you!” She’d continue, a fanged smile covering her blushing face. “I heard from one of these guys there’s supposed to be some CRAZY magical fireworks being launched from the park at midnight, n- not like normal ones at all! Even some fun magic games nearby! Do you guys wanna check it out with me..?” She would say, seemingly ready and able to move on to the next activity with Akemi. “Perhaps we grab something for your bleeding face before we can take a wander?” Lucky would say, making sure Nymara didn’t forget about her bruises as she already seemed to. “Unless you wanna fight too! I think they’re organizing another tournament in a few minutes!” Nymara would say towards Akemi, ignoring the feline as Lucky’s eyebrow raised. Nymara really did seem taken by the twilight dragon tonight, and far more than her usual friendly self. Even the exceed could see that.
