    ( I spent all that time looking for a connection between my father and granduncle and having found anything yet. Couldn't even find a damn Research Librarian! Well seems like it's about to start, might as well sit down,) Boris thought.

    Boris takes a seat.

    After spending time in the Garden with Jamie and Lucy, Jinny returned inside and kept herself occupied until lunch. The afternoon was spent much like the morning until they were escorted into the Conference Room.

    Taking a seat, Jinny looked at the envelope and folder, then looked around at everyone inside. Some faces were familiar, others not so much so. Her gaze rested on Hiro and made an assumption that he was the one planning on speaking first. Not that it would surprise her.

    She was expecting there to be some type of media presentation, a video made in advance by Johannes or perhaps a tribute video of some kind. Her eyes drifted away from Hiro to the room in general, looking for any sign of technology.

    There was very little in the way of technology aside from the coffee maker.

    The walls and carpet lacked features, heavily contrasting the personalized feeling the rest of the manor had held.

    Hironobu took a look at his pocket watch as the remaining numbers entered.

    Vivian sighed, and shuffled off to get more coffee.



    Vivian considered this for a moment before cackling. "Got a point there... appearances are important." Returning to the table she gently set her coffee down before producing a hard-boiled egg from spaces unknown that was rather meticulously dismantled.

    ... One could dream.
    "More's the pity. At the very least, I suppose this egg won't feed off your thoughts and lash out, yeah?"

    Of course, given the wanton way she seemed to pluck things out of the air - fire, chief among them - it was curious why Vivian's Stand would therefore be so inert. Sitting unusually straight, Suzie found herself upon her heels at the edge of her seat as she studied the hard-shelled apparition in the meantime.

    "Thereabouts. Broken Creek or... summat. Hard to know for sure, once you're out of Salem proper." Harder to know when Salem ended, deeply as those roots had spread in so short a time.

    "Nature reclaimed what mankind spoiled, so they say. Way I see it, that's only half true. Mankind spoiled, sure... but there's a difference between reclamation, and... expansion." Damn dirty trees. Meteor got into the roots and gave them strange notions.

    "Weald provides, though. So long as you're careful. As many stories of the Weald granting boons, as there are of the vines' reclaiming' flesh and bone."

    Trees had to eat too, mm? Carrion made for fine fertilizer.
    Suzie listened to the description of the SIZ, and her expression shrank even as she nodded along.

    "That's a matter of opinion, innit, who reclaims what from whom? Just...can you imagine, one day there's a city, then nothing but dust, till it's all done and gone to seed," she mused, "Though getting a comprehensive message from a tree would be right impossible, maybe that's why Johannes wanted to capture a piece of it to study."

    Suzie then pursed her lips in the midst of Vivian's final thought, then stole a glance at the garden outside and the way the blooms spread out on the archways, framed over the various human furnishings.

    "...wonder how many seasons had it been? Suppose those'd be crosspollinated hybrids?" A subdued, morose laugh escaped Suzie as she drew her fork through the jam-and-flatbread sludge on her plate, and bloody seeds leaked about before she ate the saturated paste it had become.

    "On the subject of what the Weald provides, I imagine roots and shoots and the like, probably not a favourable place for a vegan, right?"

    Another day. Another line. Another procession of the House of Joestar.

    Suzie surveyed the conference room as she entered. The rows of chairs enclosed in such a regimented manner brought her mind back to, of all things, the latter end of education. The long table with its folio held a piece of paper that determined the course of their lives, after all. Pomp and Circumstance. Shake the Dean's hand, walk off.

    How unfortunate that this was hardly going to be as performative and simple as this. Seeing Hironobu-san there, looming large amid the circle of the Speedwagon board, keeping time as he always had, filled her with a modicum of dread.

    Despite this, she offered a feeble wave to greet their cousin before taking a seat, crossing her legs before her and taking a respectful silence for the moment.
