Using Popostone to make thread
Arcosian Empire soldiers had went about their business, walking along the space port and doing their daily inspections and such like it was nothing new. The person in charge was a blue brenchian who was slim and scrawny in appearance. He looked over the clipboard and then the light that was used for him to see his clipboard was now being completely shadows over as he felt a presence behind him. The towering 10ft 300lb arcosian had stood there as he was breathing through his mask with his cloak covering his entire body and concealing his arms.
"Anything to report?"
The brenchian was indeed nervous, out of all of the arcosians he has met, Major Blizzard was the most intimidating due to his four arms and his robotic appearance which kinda reminded him of General Hibernal.
"No sir, everything is up to date and cleared. No trespassers or criminals to report."
"Any criminals that tress pass, notify Lord Mint."
He nodded, as Blizzard went about his business and started to stand at the 2nd floor of the space port and looking over the railing as he saw ships coming in and out of the docks constantly. This place was so busy that it made the actual streets of Arcose less busy.
Aaaaand there was a Phakk! The Shinjin had docked in the Arcosian spaceport with very little trouble, her documents provided by her once-family holding up even under the empire’s scrutiny, and she now found herself trailing her suitcase behind her and walking through the highly populated port area. Breathing in deeply, she couldn’t help but let out a satisfied and happy sigh at the scent of the frigid air. Perhaps a little too mechanical for her, but the ice demons didn’t seem to mind it, so who was she to judge? Plus! The nature wasn’t what she was here for~ That would be the CULTURE!
Phakk had always had an appreciation for fashion, of course. That wasn’t something she ever tried to hide, and in fact she often spoke at length to the people she met on her travels about just how amazing clothes were and the variety of cosplays she’d been working on. And it was Arcose… that had the BEST fashion. The most famous brands, the finest stitching, the most dedication to the craft! Thousands of years put into the art! Which, when she thought about it, made it really weird that they didn’t often wear clothes. But no matter! The items you could buy in a thrift shop here would outclass ANY high level fashion retailer on Plant, and a lot of them on Earth, too! It was part of the reason she had even bothered to bring her suitcase with her, since Ward wasn’t there to carry her clothes.
…She hoped he was okay. Wherever he was. She missed him.
But nevertheless! After spending some time buying chocolates at a nearby stall, Phakk stepped up to pass her way through the final gate that lead out to the capital proper.

Someone had caught his attention and that was a particular powerful individual entering the space port. His scouters began to pick it up. A yellow type of circle with crosshairs at the center of it began to scan each and every person that was nearby, finally turning red on the spot as it had identified that target rather easier than expected.
After watching her for quite sometime and being far off in the distance so that she couldn't spot him easily, he finally decided to make his approach and being as not intimidating as possible, though, being an arcosian and covered in cybernetic parts made it difficult to achieve. However as he spoke, hopefully his appearance would be blocked out and his words would be what makes the situation less intimidating.
"Hello there miss, my name is Major Blizzard and I hope you are having a wonderful time in our shopping district. If you need a grand tour of the city itself, I would be more than helpful in showing you around the tourist section of this city. We have the best hotels, the best casinos, the best sites that one would admire while they are here on Planet Arcose. Its not just all cold with no fun."
He had both his hands together just holding themselves together. Showing a hospitality type of approach.
Phakk blinked up from where she had been inspecting her passport, trying to figure out which way it was supposed to go for her to pass through the final gate, and came face to face with a rather... cool looking Arcosian! "Wow! I like your mask!" She blurts out, hands almost instinctively reaching up to gently grasp at the mask covering Blizzard's face, trying to tilt his head this way and that to inspect the craftsmanship. "Is it a custom order? I'd love to know where you got it! I've been looking for something similar for one of my outfits." There was a small beat, before she blinks in realisation of what she was doing, and quickly retracts her small hands.
"O-oh, um, sorry! About that, I-I mean." She swallows, nodding. "Um... y-y-yeah, that sounds lovely! Do I need to... pay anything?" She wasn't sure if this man was an official, or one of those con artists she'd heard about. Then again, she was rich, so maybe even if he was a con artrist she could just go along with it? It could certainly be an adventure! Yeah! The more she thought about it, the more willing she was to not immediately start sprinting away from the Sith Arcosian. "Well, either way, sure! I bet a local knows this place better than a first timer." She nods enthusiastically, hair bouncing somewhat with the speed of it. "So... where to first? U-unless that would be an ATM, because I only have cash on me."

This girl was rather... strange. He would fiddle away from the girl as he calmly stepped back and raised a brow. He would sigh in disbelief at her attempt to grab at his face and examine his mask. Though she did retract her hands, Blizzard still made his motion to step away. Did she not grow up with the mentality of look don't touch policy?! Specially with PEOPLE. Though she was generally curious at his mask and Blizzard wasn't the one to downgrade someone's culture... even though his main job before being a major was liberating corrupt governments, so that they could have a culture.
"It comes from our arcosian technology. It was made to help me breath properly... it isn't something I like wearing, but it is what it is. and you also don't have to pay for the tour. It's free."
If she wanted to go to an ATM, then that's where they would go first. After that was done, Blizzard would then call in a hovering platform which acted like a train almost in guiding them a specific path but without the crowded people or frequent stops. This platform would be just high enough level to spot the local restaurants and malls and such to shop at. If she would join him on the platform, the tour would begin.
"So to our left you will see our restaurants. We capture the non conscious lifeforms of course for eating. To our right you will see our grand mall that has all of the latest fashion for our arcosian population. We are hip to the latest trend you could say."
"I thought Arcosians could naturally breathe in all environments?" Phakk tilts her head at his explaination, moving to fall in step with the Major, her suitcase trawling behind her. The journey to the ATM confused her, as he had said it was free, but in order to not be awkward she quickly withdraws some money that... maybe could come in handy later? Phakk wasn't sure. She just didn't want him to look silly. Then it was over to the platform! "Oh, wow!" She comments as they board, leaning over one of the railings to glance downward, tucking her hair behind an ear, smile blossoming on her face as she looks around. "This is great!" She comments rather pointlessly as they made their way along and above the crowds, dress fluttering in the cool arctic wind.
Both the resturaunts and the mall immediately caught her attention as he pointed them out, the Shinjin moving to excitedly pat the Arcosian on the arm, although not much. He seemed to have a thing against touch. "Oh! Oh! Can we go there? I came for the shopping, and then after, if you want to join me, how about we go get something to eat? I can pay! Think of it like payment for this tour." ...And maybe the amount of bags he'd need to carry if he accepted. ...Buuut she was going to keep THAT one a secret. In the name of peace! Muhahahaha! "Thanks for doing this, though. I appreciate the warm welcome! Get it? 'Cause Arcose is so cold!"

Blizzard shifted his eyes to phakk before raising a brow.
“We can breath in every environment. But I had received a severe injury to my throat which is why I wear this mask. I can even still survive in the vacuums of space.”
Then she wanted to go shopping, well Blizzard hasn’t been to the shops of Arcose for quite some time. In fact the last time he had gone shopping was before his military days since he was so use to the military uniform that they already provide you and in space you needed more protection. He agreed with a nod and now the both of them went shopping together. It had seemed like the generation of clothing had completely changed on Arcose. Blizzard even grabbed one of the beanie hats on the rack and placed it on his head as he stared at a mirror.
“This keeps my head more warm oddly. We arcosians don’t really need clothes since our bodies already is cold resistant already.”
He would place the hat back and see what Phakk was up to. Hopefully she was the type of girls that only bought the essentials and nothing too big.
"Of course I like jokes? Who doesn't?" Phakk responds with a giggle, shaking her head and hopping from foot to foot with excitement to get the day going already. As the two made their way into the rather large and expansive mall, she couldn't help but notice that it seemed that Blizard was as unused to the Arcosian shopping culture as she was. Which... sort of validated her suspicions that he may be more military thaninitially presumed. Probably because of her ambient power level? Phakk supposed that would make sense. After all, what if the person withh all the power turned out to be dangerous? Best to keep an eye on them from the beginning!
"It looks cute on you!" Phakk calls over as he tries to beanie on, and as he turned towards her, he would note that his hopes would be dashed. Already her arms were laden with bags, which she tottered from foot to foot under the weight of. "No! Don't put it baaaack- Here." The Shinjin moved to lift her bag laden arms up towards Blizzard, offering him to take them, and just dropping them if they didn't. "Stay riiiiight there." She tells him with a no nonsense attitude, before quickly beginning to scramble about the nearby store, emerging with a nice orange beanie and green scarf. "Maybe not a perfect fit together, but they give you a splash of colour that isn't provided by your little crystal things." She tells him, already paying for the items so as to avoid him attempting to deny the gifts, and then furhter trying to slip them onto the Arcsosian.
Once that debacle was done, the purple haired woman gives a large grin, and places her hands on her hips. "Okay! Lets keep going!"

What kind of foolish or circus clown event was this truly happening. He was carrying all of her shopping spree bags which was extremely a lot even with six arms! Then she had placed on his head an orange beanie and a green scarf. His blushing wouldn't be noticeable but the awkwardness would be. He had to somehow get away from all this shopping spree since anymore of this carrying his arms would fall off!
"Miss, I was thinking we go to the East end of the Mall and perhaps go to the all you can eat buffet that they have over there. Its marked at a fair price and we can get to know each others culture over some fine wine and arcosian culture music that is over there."
Hopefully this would be enough to convince the girl to stop the shopping spree since at this point, anymore more shopping bags would definitely cover his face which would make it hard to even see where he was going! He needed this convincing to work so he added something else to it.
"I am a bit hungry and thirsty at the moment. Perhaps refueling ourselves with food before we continue shopping would be a fine addition!"
"Oh! A buffet? I've never seen one!" Phakk is rather easily distracted by Blizzard's idea, happily clapping both of her hands and hopping from foot to foot. "Let's go let's go!" Blizzard would find her arm hooking through one of his less occupied ones as she moved to try and make her way in the direction he had indicated, humming to herself. "I like your arms! I met a namekian that could do a similar trick. Is that natural, or more of a ki technique?" She asks as they moved, smiling brightly at him, and taking the chance to make sure the beanie was adjusted properly. "I appreciate you helping me out, even if it is your job." She happily tells the Arcosian.
"And i'm aaaaalso sorry that I've run you so ragged! You should have told me you were hungry earlier, we could have gotten you a bite to eat!" Phakk herself didn't really... feel hunger for material objects, but she did so love the act of eating. Of consuming. And the more chemicals, the more sugar, the better! Of course that wasn't to say that she didn't like to eat other types of food, but soda and junk food? Would always hold a special place in her heart. Right next to Ward, and the creator of Metroid.
