So this is what it feels like to be stung by Customs."orz

I had this guy (and another one for my bestie) sent through Registered Airmail, thinking that I'd be able to save myself a few bucks. What happened instead was that it got stuck in Customs for one month and three days, with Air Parcel refusing to forward it to Laguna since it was just RA and and not EMS. When they finally forwarded the package, it came with a whooping Php2.1k bill from Customs. Ack!DX But for two dolls, two outfits and a few other knickknacks, I guess that price isn't all that bad, right? *sigh*

Anyway, between the excitement of finally receiving them and doing my first Skype box opening (it was soooo much fun!), I didn't get to take any box opening pics."orz So here, have an arrival photostory instead~.^_^

FIN.


Trish looks so sick in these pictures."orz No, Nanashi, we're treating her just fine!

So, anyway, please say hi to my newest boy, Nanashi! He's a warrior with a permanent bad hair day, and the picture below is the best I've ever gotten at taming his wig...and never managed to pull off again."orz



He also has a heart of gold, and is Trish's guardian and partner in the Tournament of Dreams. Also known as the Arena, it's a fighting tournament seen favourably by Fortune, daughter of Tyche and goddess of luck. Fighters from all over the world join the tournament hoping that they'd please the goddess and have their dreams come true. Trish is one of its top fighters, and is known in the Arena as its 'Princess'.

Trish's dream is to find her brother (Josh), from whom she was separated several years prior. Nanashi's dream is, well, not even Trish knows. They met during tournament registrations, which required each group to have at least two members. Overconfident, Nanashi took Trish under his wing without realizing that she, too, is capable of protecting him. And has, many times over.

Their group slowly grew bigger through the years and its members are 'the others' Nanashi spoke of. As one of Fortune's favorites, the goddess will look upon them unfavourably and curse them if Trish leaves the tournament. Fortunately, she only has to make appearances during fights, so Trish can stay with Josh the rest of the time.^_^

Nanashi, on the other hand, will have to remain in the Arena to continue watching over their group. So we probably won't be seeing much of him around...
