What is True Strength?

Welcome back from the Draft, for those still returning. To the New Feathers, or anyone else, my name is Vice Admiral Smoker. I teach basic self-defense, kick-boxing, and jitte outside of the barracks. While not everyone gets taken on the drafts, there's no warning who will get dragged on them, and learning to defend yourself while you can might save your life on one of them.

And if anyone still has a painted rock with the emblem for "Justice" on it, I'd like it back. Whatever it takes.

It's occurred to me recently that just as different people have different ideas of Justice, so too do they have different idea what of true strength is. What do you consider true strength, and do you think it differs from your world's idea of it? I guess you could say it's been on my mind lately.

Thanks.

[What was true strength? At a time it would have been magic and influence. But, seeing what happened in the draft that belief is utterly shaken. People with magic had it ripped from them when a shifter was about and all the influence in the world couldn't stop the cultists from killing people.

But, what was true strength now? What could he even say to that?]

Maybe true strength doesn't even exist. Maybe it varies.

If it does why wasn't it there in the draft?

[Cross would have added 'for him' but that's not what this was about.

So in face of saving this conversation from spiraling into an argument, Cross will ask something.]


What's true strength to you?

You'd think the side who could pack the harder punch would win.

[That's hot it works, right? Ideals... really only did get you so far. And without something backing them you were useless.]

Huh...I see. So, what is your justice?

[Someone had left one of those Justice Rocks on her doorstep while she was a spirit. She'd collected it, but...didn't know who it belonged to.]

I have your rock, Smoker. Or one of them.

[personal profile] windandrain 2013-04-10 04:34 am (UTC)(link)
Of course. It's not mine. I don't even know where it came from.

[She shakes her head]

I've...had better months, honestly. What of you?
windandrain: (Boooooring)

Ah. Strange. I don't think I've met that man.

As for myself...I was drafted. And, kidnapped for the first time.

Ah.. Smoker-kun, I know. [ LISTEN HOW PROUD SHE IS. In her usual blankish tone, but there's a hint of pride if you listen.. ]

True strength is the state, property, or quality of being strong. [ .. dictionary definition.. ] Right?
etudes: (piacevole)

[personal profile] etudes 2013-04-10 06:01 pm (UTC)(link)
[ She tries, okay! Or rather, she doesn't try to brighten anyone's day but it just happens because of her natural cuteness.. ]

Thank you, Smoker-kun. Did other people give you helpful answers too?
etudes: (malinconico)

[personal profile] etudes 2013-04-12 02:21 pm (UTC)(link)
.. Huh..? [ Oh no, she's starting to look a little sad! ] Why not? Smoker-kun shouldn't ask questions if he isn't going to get the answer he expects..

Well, I know my dad would like me to train...I know the basics already, though.

[More like a shopping-obsessed half-Saiyan non-warrior.]

A little. It doesn't seem like they give people that much of a choice...which seems kind of stupid because you'd think they'd offer some kind of incentive for trained fighters to volunteer. They don't pick little kids for these things, do they?

[She seriously hopes not.]
fashionably_strong: (shocked)

[Voice]

[personal profile] fashionably_strong 2013-04-14 12:57 am (UTC)(link)
That's awful. I'm not really interested in becoming a warrior, but if I can use what I know to protect small kids and maybe work on improving...

[She trails off, giving it some more thought. Obsessive combat training is for her father, and sometimes her brother. Still, she was brought up with morals, and even if she's not strong, she's stronger than children and would do what she could to keep them safe. She could protect kids while the more experienced fighters did their thing on a draft.]

Well, I'm not bad with my hooves. But most of my combat experience is magic-based, and I think my magic is dampened here. And with my wings... well, sometimes I can be more of a danger than a help in the air.

I've organized the library back to front at least four times since I've gotten back. Helios will probably let me take a break whenever I need to.

[ She needs something to keep herself occupied. ]

My name's Twilight Sparkle, by the way.
