[A minute after the clock strikes twelve in the city of Discedo, every single light in the city that isn't broken flares to life, lighting up every building and street. There's a few moments silence before Washu finally speaks.]

Happy New Year.

If you mean restore electricity to the city, then yes.

Is that what this is? Electricity? I am afraid I am unfamiliar with it.

Oh~? Then I will just have to educate you now won't I?

First lets start with defining what electricity is. It is a phenomenon that can either be artificially or naturally created in which an electrical charge is produced.

The most recognizable of the phenomenon happens to be lightening or even static electricity. Artificially it is a current being generated through a conductive material used to power an item such as a lightbulb, toaster or television.

Or if you're not familiar with those~. It's what makes the communicators work.

Any questions so far?

Wonderful~. Now, the application of this charge can vary widely. For our purposes, I will only explain what pertains to us.

When I repaired the turbines in the power plant, I created generators capable of producing large amounts of electrical potential. That potential travels down the conductive connections to every apartment or street lap or whatever outlet. There it is waiting for the circuit to be completed by another component.

For instance, lets take a toaster. When you put the pronged plug into an outlet, you give the current a path to travel. It goes into the toaster and is directed to the heating coils where it warms up and cooks whatever you put in the toaster.

The connection is broken when you unplug the device or turn it off.

So bright!

[The blanketlump whines.]

But it's too bright now!

[At least Flandre thinks so for the next thirty seconds.

The white rabbit hopping up onto blanket mountain to investigate the noise thinks you are silly, Flandre. It has its ears turned toward the communicator like satellite dishes--while its nose twitches in what might be a disapproving manner. Maybe.

Just let your eyes adjust~. It's better than being in total darkness all the time.

But I like the dark!

[Well when one has their very own flashlights for eyes suddenly total darkness isn't such a big deal!

Sucks to be without, though.

[The rabbit on the blanketlump finds this silly. And starts digging at the blanket as if it were attempting to start a burrow. The blanketlump squirms instead!]

That tickles!

[What seems to be the blanketlump's head rises up from the amorphous blanket-mass--facing the wrong direction. The rabbit on top of it stops digging to cling instead because THE EARTH IS MOVING.]

It'll get in my eyes!

[Eventually it does pan around enough to see the device properly--revealing two very red eyes. Little else for now, except a few bits of a face highlighted by their glow.]

[Now that gains a little more of her attention. Washu leans in a little to get a good look at those eyes.]

I see.. then you are a nocturnal creature with enhanced night vision. I can see where it would be painful then.

[The eyes blink a few times, processing the words. Then they glance around a bit, though the owner seems rather disinclined to extract herself from the blankets. The same could not be said for the rabbit, which hopped off as soon as it was able. Flandre chirped after it.]

It is a welcoming sight after what just happened, aru.

Thank you~. I'm glad everyone seems to appreciate my months of hard work. I figured the city needed a literal 'light of hope'.


...And Happy New Year to you too~.

A light of hope indeed. I hope you made it through the ordeal in one piece?

Sorry, I have a bad habit of switching languages sometimes. But yes! If only we some decent rice baijiu like the ones they left during October. Then again, when I ate the chocolate, I felt much better, aru!

Of course I did. Admittedly, I still refuse to believe in 'magic' with out definitive proof and the recent situation was less than ideal to conduct experiments.

[Chuckles.]

Don't worry about it~. I am afraid that my grasp on Earth languages is a little rusty, but it's translatable.


For celebration~, I think I mite have a little sake around here, that chocolate and perhaps whatever else we find ay be celebratory enough for me.
