I’m kind of used to writing reports by now, whether for the Foundation or for the Morioh Police Department.  I don’t like it any more than I liked my homework years ago, but there’s a better reason behind it, anyway.  These are to keep people informed and safe, so that’s worth a whole lot more.

I’m sending this with the representatives of the SWC that they’re sending to collect the old man, too, which is even more important because if they read it they’ll at least have an idea of how to fight it if he tries anything funny.

Oh, and I got his name from his wallet.  Apparently he was fighting because his grandkids are in danger, so we should see if we can’t rescue them.

I’d like to say hi to the young lady I talked to on the phone.  It was great talking to you, kid.

Back in Time is a really terrifying Stand, but that’s true for most of the Stands that can control time (just ask Jotaro-san!)  Once it gets off its effect, you’re stuck going through your past.  I suppose it’s a kind of stealth Stand, too, since it can’t really protect its user.  It takes the form of a pocket watch without a cover.  I found it searching him when he was unconscious, and it looks weird enough it probably is a Stand.

pocketwatch without a cover in Back to the Future colours

Don’t Look Back: Back in Time’s main mechanism is shuffling you through moments in your past you’ll either want to change or situations you’ll find it difficult to get out of without changing.  It works off the opponent’s psychology, which is the terrifying part, since everybody’s probably had days and moments they wanted to change.  If you give in to the urge or mess up, you’ll start turning transparent and in general begin fading from the world.  However, this also means that certain powers in the past don’t affect you in the same way as the last time, and if this lets you survive something that would’ve killed you, it can at least partially undo the transparent effect.  It’s possible that managing to go through a certain number of jumps without messing up is all you need to do, but I didn’t get to test this.  Back in Time also has no way to protect its User specifically, so if you can take him out or get him to stop using his Stand, you should be good.  (Though from what I can tell, he’s actually a nice guy, and he’s also old, so if you can not kill him, that would be great.)  He should be easy to spot, though, once you know what you’re looking for—he reverse ages in every ‘era’ you visit.  It looks a little like it’s proportional, but I didn’t get a good look.

       “Why marine life?” Kakyoin whispers, staring at the ceiling.
       There’s a grumble from the next bed.  “Go to sleep, Noriaki.”
       He holds his breath for a second.  Despite how predictable Jotaro seems, he’s actually master of the unexpected.  “I can’t,” he confesses, and for one awful second stretched to infinity, the silence is accusing.  Then…
       “Did you know there’s a species of crab that will have a heart attack if you chase it too long?”
       Instantly Kakyoin sits up, eyes wide.  “You’re making that up.”
       “Nope.”  One of Jotaro’s huge hands comes to rest on the cap placed above his face.  The rest of him doesn’t move.  Then, again: “Did you know that most tidal pools are somewhat unique in their species composition, even ones only a meter apart?”
       The only interest Kakyoin usually has for this sort of thing is as an amateur artist, but he turns on his stomach, fluffing his pillow, facing his friend.  “Wow,” he breathes.
       He can hear Jotaro’s grin—and it’s actually a grin and not a smirk, for once—in the deep voice.  “Did you know that octopi can learn puzzle solutions by watching another octopus complete the puzzle?”
       “That’s really cool,” he says, eyes sparkling, and then a thought occurs to him.  “You know, if you talk about all your marine knowledge tomorrow, it’ll annoy Polnareff.”
       “Challenge accepted, jerk.”  Now it’s an affectionate smile.  Jotaro puts his hand back to his side.  “Get some sleep.”
       "Good night, Jotaro," Kakyoin whispers, already relaxing.

Image is, yes, from The Secret World vanilla.  And yes, I created Josie to play (a while ago).  Unfortunately, GIMP doesn't have any manga filters, but I could at least do crazy Araki colors.  /grin  Her real color is red, and it's generally longer than shown as a kind of combat taunt.
She probably stole her dad's bike and uniform and is riding around like the Jojo she is.

          Kakyoin’s been looking forward to getting home and playing some games all day.  He plans on just a few hours before he makes food, or maybe just order out (again) if he loses track of time.
          Jotaro never complains.  He actually prefers fast food and ramen, as far as Kakyoin can tell, which is exactly why Kakyoin insists on being the cook of the couple, to make sure Jotaro has something like a balanced diet, even if he has to trick the man into it.
          Along those lines, Kakyoin wouldn’t normally encourage something like this, but he doesn’t feel like putting the effort in after the day he’s had.
          He walks in and sees…a white coat, hanging up on one of the pegs.  Usually Jotaro’s late.  He loses track of time working with all the animals and often works overtime.  Which at least helps their financial situation, but doesn’t do much for socialization.  “Jojo?”
          “’m here,” a voice calls out, and he follows the voice to the computer room.
          Jotaro’s hunched over the computer, and by the way he’s clenching his jaw he’s angry.  “What’s wrong?”            He takes in the underwater scene.  It doesn’t look like Earth, from what little Kakyoin can tell through his amateur knowledge gleaned from listening to his boyfriend talk.
          “I died,” Jotaro answers, morose.  “I lost a lot of stuff.”
          The game Kakyoin had been looking forward to was actually on the computer, but he can grab his handheld, and it’s so rare to see his boyfriend play a game that he’s really tempted to just watch.
          “You’re home early,” he points out.
          Jojo grunts.  “Bullshit politics.  Some sorta inspection thing; apparently I’m not the best PR and they’re running low staff.  I just hope they don’t neglect any of the animals.”
          Kakyoin embraces his boyfriend from behind, pressing a kiss to Jotaro’s ear.  “Well, if they do, you’re the one to make sure they take responsibility for themselves.”
          The brunet freezes, hands stilling, and Kakyoin can see the slight flush on the tops of Jotaro’s ears.  Immediately, his day is improving.
          “Tell me about the game,” he asks, and Jotaro’s character respawns in what looks like a small floating metallic sphere, and he starts explaining.  He isn’t obviously excited, but the fact that he’s more talkative than normal says it all.  Especially since his “doesn’t play anything” super serious nerd of a boyfriend is actually playing a game.

Rating: Gen

         “So…you’re a girl.”
         “Sorta,” Jotaro responds with a bland tone.  It’s common for him to say things in a bland tone, but there’s actually differences in the bland tone.  For instance, right now he’s wondering why the hell Kakyoin’s making a big deal about this tinged with an undercurrent of irritation if it keeps up (Kakyoin’s heard him use it a couple of times on his mother, a sweet lady named Holly who he’s heard next to nothing about because while Jotaro isn’t normally talkative he clams up when it’s about his mom).
         “But you have tits.”  He’s not usually vulgar, but sometimes it’s the only way to get across to Jotaro.
         That earns an amused smile.  Sort of a ‘well, you earned a brief reprieve, don’t screw it up’.  “Yep.”
         Kakyoin tries, a couple times, to think of a response that won’t get him hit.  Eventually he settles on, “I’m confused,” because honesty is a big part of their friendship, and it’s very true.  He’s having a sexual crisis, actually, because he’s gay but apparently Jotaro isn’t a guy and he likes Jotaro anyway.  Still.  Probably.
         The hot voice helps.
         Jotaro shrugs.  He’s exhuding a ‘don’t wanna talk about it’ air now, but he gets that this is a conversation they need to have.  “I don’t really care.  I don’t particularly like pronouns but if you gotta—and I know it’s inconvenient not to—male pronouns are fine.  I’m not exactly a girl and I don’t like people referring to me as one, but it’s true I’m not exactly a guy, either.  I could have an operation pretty quick if I cared enough.  The old man wouldn’t mind paying for it.  I just…I get that there are people out there who lose their shit over stuff like this.  That it’s a big deal for some people.  I don’t really care.  That being said, anybody assuming that I’m small and weak, just ‘cause I was born with certain parts…”  The look on Jotaro’s face is predatory and dangerous and the world realigns a little again.  There’s a part of his friend that’s cruel, sometimes, and it’s fine because it makes him feel normal.  “I’m Jotaro.  I want people to remember that, not anything else.”
         “You’re certainly memorable,” Kakyoin offers, and the brilliant, fond, even sweet smile he gets in return was worth it.

Summary: Kakyoin finally gets to talk to his crush.
Word Count: 420
Rating: Gen

        It’s not long until Polnareff gets him playing the game on his own, mostly because yeah, he actually is a gamer at heart, and also he has a ridiculous crush on the owner of the voice which Polnareff finds hilarious.  He’ll be lucky if he stops hearing about that before he dies.  And at least Polnareff’s shifts have been overscheduled for a bit, mostly because the Frenchman has a bad habit of calling in sick once too often.
        He’s gotten to level 9, so he’s gotten through the starting districts of Mikage-cho and has begun to not feel like quite such a beginner.  He’s having difficulties deciding between whether he wants to wield a sword or staff, but is leaning toward staff if only so he can be different from his friend.  Plus, when he rolled really well on a rare sword even if it was a beginning sword the Frenchman hadn’t stopped whining for a few hours, and it’s hard enough to stop that from happening on a regular basis as it is.
        Polnareff gets on long enough to introduce the two (with an innuendo; Kakyoin’s just glad that there’s no facecam so Star can’t see the tips of his ears blushing): “Hey, this is my friend; he’s a virgin at MMORPGS, so take it easy with him, okay?”  He winks at Kakyoin and leaves the room, throwing stuff into his basic pillowcase that he takes to work every day, swearing at that, too.  Kakyoin breathes in quietly as he adjusts the mike and tries to remind himself that he’s the responsible adult of the two roommates and shouldn’t hurl objects at someone even if they’re freaking immature.
        There’s an expectant silence, and Kakyoin feels his heart hammering away in his rib cage, before the guy speaks.  “So, Midori.  And you’re a…Herald.  How’d you end up with a loser friend like that useless Cavalier?”
        Kakyoin nearly doesn’t respond.  He’s got the worst case of butterflies.  He did enough reading on classes and the rest of the game so he doesn’t look like a complete idiot when he plays (ignoring Polnareff who swears no one needs manuals ever).  But on the other hand, this is a guy he really wants to impress and he has to start somewhere, so he responds.  He doesn’t really have the time to think out how he’s gonna say this.  “Probably the same way I’m hoping to become friends with you?”
        That bark of laughter is the single greatest thing he’s heard in his life.

You know you have a problem when your crossovers begin to have crossovers.
I don't think I'm going to have a big story here, for once. Just some fun side stuff with playing games. Thus, I don't think there's going to be any Coma Players amongst the Jojo's crew or anything. It may not even take place in the same universe as the mainverse iso crew, though the created characters might show up at some point. It's like the Endrance|Elk thing.  Continuity is an unanswered question.  It's just playing around, both with the characters and with the game mechanics themselves.
They're also going to be more like vaguely connected drabbles than one storyline with all the blanks filled in and a clear passage of time.

Rating: Gen

          “Come on, Kakyoin, there’s this game you should play. You’re always playing on your console, but you should try actually playing with other people for once.” Polnareff, the social butterfly, probably can’t contemplate actually having fun doing things on his own. He doesn’t like being around most people, doesn’t like the way they tend to look at him, or worse, the way they stop so easily when he just puts up the littlest amount of a false front. Maybe he despises them. It’s hard to tell.
          The logo of the game is vaguely familiar when Polnareff clicks on it. Kakyoin vaguely remembers having seen it before, mostly when the Frenchman had deleted a bunch of Actually Important Stuff to download the thing. He should probably be happy it wasn’t a virus gained from visiting porn sites, considering that the man is kinda reckless with the computer they share.
          “At least I get a perk to deal with living with you. I can access the Japan-only servers,” the man explains as he signs in the game and then a colorful knight-looking character. Kakyoin rolls his eyes and turns the page of his book. As if Polnareff is the one who truly suffers. Well, it’s not like Kakyoin minds. Which is weird.
          He gets sidetracked reading, and only remembers that he’s supposed to be learning all about this new game that he should play (he’s convinced it’s because it would benefit his friend somehow) when the loud, bombastic commentary becomes even worse than usual. Polnareff swears colorfully in French, Kakyoin’s sure without even knowing the language, and then follows that up with a “You’re always cheating, Star.”
          “Am not,” a smug voice replies, and Kakyoin feels his heart skip a beat. That voice, it’s…
          He’s falling in love with some gamer he can’t even see just based on the sound of a sexy voice. This is his social life, right now. He hadn’t really been bothered about reality until this moment when he realizes it’s just that absurd and he’s probably going to buy a game subscription just to hear more of that voice.
          “You just suck at the game.” The speaker punctuates that statement with yet another well-placed strike, and Polnareff’s character dies, and his friend carefully places down the controller like they talked about because Kakyoin really can’t afford to keep buying them replacements, and just stalks off. Most likely to hit a wall or something.
          Hopefully not to break out his fencing equipment, because the last time that happened not at the training facility their landlord threw a fit.

           Kakyoin feels a twinge of guilt as he peruses the book stands eagerly.  Joestar-san had insisted that none of them was to go anywhere alone in case of Stand attack, so Kakyoin asked Jotaro if he’d wanted to go along. He’d gotten a big, expressive shrug in return, but Jojo had stood up, so he’d assumed it had been a yes.  From the way that Jotaro’s standing now, though…not even looking at the stalls, or the stands…what had he even been thinking, bringing a delinquent book shopping?
           He starts slightly as Jotaro clears his throat.  Several of the other customers shiver a little, intimidated.
           “Y-yes, Jojo?” he asks, looking back over his shoulder. 
           Jotaro tugs his cap down to cover his face a little.  “See if there’s any mysteries, Shonen Jump, or books about marine life.”
           For a moment, Kakyoin’s brain short-circuits.  “I-I’m sorry?”
           “It’s not the end of the world if you can’t find them,” Jotaro states gruffly, clearly embarrassed.  “It’d just be something to keep us from getting bored.”
           It’s all he can do to keep the wide grin off his face.  He’s been trying to learn more about his rescuer for ages, so the chance to do so is amazing.  “Any particular authors?  I don’t know that much about the mystery genre.”  He spots a children’s marine life book and almost ignores it, but then realizes it follows the letter of Jotaro’s request and he can find a mystery, somewhere in this haphazard collection, to make up for it.
           Jotaro’s begun mumbling into his cap, which is a little funny.  “My favorite is Columbo, so if you can find any of those.  Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple isn’t bad, though.  Honestly I’ll read any well-written mystery.”  He’s embarrassed, and Kakyoin’s first instinct is to tease him, but he doesn’t give in to that instinct.  Jojo is his first friend.  He might as well be nice.
           “I’ll look,” he promises, and is grateful he’s looking back because he sees the slightest of smiles cross the fellow student’s face before he glances away and hides his face with the hat.
