"Extracurriculars aren't mandatory, but seeing as you don't currently have anything on your agenda, I highly suggest that you find something to occupy yourself with."
"Uh huh..."


"Look, I get where you're coming from. You don't care for co-op activities, and I respect that. But when the board members are involved, I don't think you have much choice."

"Uh huh..."


"Believe me when I say I'm on your side here. This is the only easy alternative you've got after getting into a fight, especially with students from another school. Hell, a school without a single metahuman. You probably don't even realize how much PR the administration office had to do after your dumb brawl."

"Listen uh, can I fuckin' go now?"


Normally, Ms. Fusaku Emiri wouldn't even have bothered with this whole mess, and leave the redheaded boy to his own devices in a tribunal held by the board members themselves. But as of late, she was starting to actually notice the dynamics of her homeroom students, and because of that, actually bothered to care.

"Oh for fuck's sake, Urahara! Before it was just your damn games. I don't know what you're playing at now, but it's sure as hell not making me smile. Get out of here...it's up to you now. You can join a club or whatever, or you can deal with the board members yourself. I've said my piece. I'm done..."

Without a second thought, Urahara Daisuke was out the door. As if he was going to join a club, and the tribunal could suck it. In fact, it wasn't even his fault. It was those punks from another school that were cornering that first year AHS girl, and they just happened to be in his line of sight while he was in a bad mood. He cursed under his breath as he considered that he wouldn't even be in this mess if that dumb first year stuck around to vouch for the redhead sticking up for her.

"All out of their fucking minds. Those punks, that idiot freshman, the cops, the board, that bitch Fusaku-"

He stopped and stared down a couple of students wearing the Student Council armbands that were facing one of the classroom doors in the hallway. He overheard their conversation.


"-just too loud. No one can possibly study like this." They froze for a moment while Daisuke took his bad mood out on the two and glared at them as he approached.

(You may be wondering what the hell those two students were talking about. Well, they were here to complain about the noise that persisted while they were studying. The 'noise' was not a normal noise, per se, though. It was, in fact, music. Their problem was that it could be heard from practically anywhere around here. And why? Because it wasn't just a simple setup. No no no... OUTSIDE of the offices and admin sector, faculty-and-so-on, the wholeness of the building Daisuke was in now, was a killer setup. A pile of stereos hooked up like madness, a bunch of instruments, and two guys...so far. Who were they? Niko Renzo and...Eddie Rabbleshlack! Eddie was attracting music-lovers to the area, with Niko on the drum set, playing a few varied tunes with him to get people's attention...)
(So far, it was mostly entertaining for people to see and hear, or irritating for those who were trying to do something serious like study, hence the council people inside of the building registering a complaint.)

Because he was so engrossed with being angry with everything around him, Daisuke didn't even notice that the entire hall was pumping with rock music. It was only until he set his glare upon the poor council members that his ears caught up with his surroundings. By this, his eardrums were actually jumping in his head from the power of the sound. He'd never actually been to one himself, but Daisuke believed that even a concert couldn't stimulate his hearing this much. It must have been something else; something in the performance itself that was making him feel this way.

Tearing his eyes from the two council members, he gazed instead at the shut door, which was doing nothing at all to keep the music contained in the room. Daisuke wasn't familiar with whatever was playing, nor did he know who was playing. All he knew was that they were good enough to get his foot tapping and able to get his lips to curl into an ambitious smirk.

As soon as the current song finished, Daisuke pushed the two council members away from the door, and all but ripped the door open, creating a scene and highlighting his presence. Regardless of what he'd find behind the door, Daisuke, ever sneering, would recklessly call out to the two culprits of the day's noise complaint.

"You takin' requests?"

(He would find a small crowd there, random students and onlookers who were totally into it instead of complaining. He would find Niko at the drums, wearing mostly black and wearing sunglasses. He would find Eddie in his usual coat and attire, with a Cat in the Hat type of hat lazily resting on his head along with his own sunglasses. Eddie was a weird guy at times. He would find...that alot of people were staring at him now as he spoke.)

"You takin' requests?"

(The two boys look at each other for a moment, then back at him.)

Eddie: Dude, we're taking volunteers.

(At this point, Daisuke might notice several papers skrewn about the place with a small pile of same at Eddie's feet, a number of which had been planted around the campus as well at various places. They said "Join the Glorious Movement, the Tempo Brigade, the Tune Platoon - or rather, Eddie Rabbleshlack's Band of Awesome!". It was hard to tell which of these jokers had made this thing, but it seemed obvious that they were here to drum up - no pun intended - interest in a band and a concert-type deal.)

"Dude, we're taking volunteers."
The redhead raised an eyebrow at the unexpected response. However, it wasn't a statement made out of the blue. A breeze from one of the open windows blew a piece of paper, identical to the ones at the blond boy's feet...and to those spread out on the classroom floor, and apparently also to the postings along the hallways, onto Daisuke's shoe. Glorious Movement. Tempo Brigade. Tune Platoon. Some Band of Awesome. Huh, so the need for volunteers was legit.

Striding up to Eddie, flyer in hand, Daisuke prodded the paper into his chest and stared him down for a bit, saying nothing. Then suddenly, Daisuke would rip the microphone from its stand, ever keeping his eyes locked onto Eddie's. Abrasive as he was, rather than a glare fit to rub anyone the wrong way, the glint in his eyes resembled more of a mischievous challenge.

"Icky Thump. Can you keep up?"

(There seemed to be a pause from the red-haired boy as he processed Eddie's words. Yeah, he was serious, alright. Eddie Rabbleshlack can do alot of stuff all on his own, but he also likes to try out the different flavors of other people's talents. I mean, for instance, Vivia in class was DAYUM GOOD at singing. So anyway, Daisuke stepped up and put a sheet of paper against Eddie's chest before takin' the mic.)

"Icky Thump. Can you keep up?"

Eddie: With my eyes closed.

Niko: Hang on, accessing...

(Niko was going wireless for a moment in his head. Reploid perk. He nodded a few seconds later.)

Niko: I got it. You may fire when ready.

(Yyyup, this is happenin' folks. The anti-'Suke was throwin' down the music gauntlet.)

He resumed his sneer and relieved his thumb from Eddie's chest, allowing for the Band of Awesome flyer to float to the floor. As he went to try the spot near the mic stand on for size, he realized that students were still staring at him because of his shameless entrance. The Daisuke that people were used to would've wilted at the first incoming glance, let alone choose to stand in front of a crowd. But that Daisuke was nowhere to be seen.

Ya-ee!
Icky thump, who'da thunk?
Sitting drunk on a wagon to Mexico
Ah well, what a chump
Well, my head got a bump
When I hit it on the radio

Redhead señorita looking dead
Came and said "Need a bed?" en Español
I said "Gimme a drink of water,
I'm gonna 'sing around the collar'
And I don't need a microphone"

Something unexpected would escape the redhead's lips as soon as he hit the verse. He made sure never to let anyone find out that he belted a tune regularly in the shower, or that he sang along with his computer. Even then, he was like a gem in the rough. No Enrico Caruso here, but he had a strong voice with a good ear and pitch. His English was also fluent, so there was no awkward pronunciation. These, together with his current...panache came together to turn Daisuke into quite the showman.

And he was definitely displaying some of that...showmanship; ripping his tie off, undoing a few buttons from his dress shirt, and sharing a few body waves with some girls in the front row during the guitar solo.


Icky thump with a lump in my throat
Grabbed my coat and I was freaking
I was ready to go
And I swear besides the hair she had one white eye,
One blank stare looking up, lying there
On the stand near her hand was a candy cane
Black rum, sugar cane, dry ice, something strange
La la-la la la-la, la la-la la laa laa laa~


Walking by an open door, most likely the origin of the blaring music, one platinum-haired, amber-eyed student stuck his head in to see who exactly was drowning out the PA system. Kazahara Masaki's eyes bugged out of his head when he saw that the school's acoustics were being hijacked by three guys in his class, especially since one of them barely spoke louder than 30dB (that of a whisper).

Whipping out his phone, Masaki snapped a few photos of the impromptu band members, taking care to snap clear shots of the redhead, especially capturing his less-than-tasteful deviation from the dress code. Going through his contact list, he attached one of the images and began composing a text to a newspaper editor. (Reasons for having this sort of person in his list, he wouldn't say.)

Pictures of UraSpace Technologies' heir letting loose and rocking out. Offer?

White Americans, what?
Nothing better to do?
Why don't you kick yourself out?
You're an immigrant, too
Who's using who? What should we do?
Well, you can't be a pimp and a prostitute too


Meanwhile, those two student council members gave up on trying to deal with the problem themselves, and chose instead to get a teacher's help. Bringing the only one currently at their desk, the two brought their backup with them. Just like the platinum-haired student earlier, Ms. Fusaku stared dumbfounded at what she saw.

She expected something like this from Eddie Rabbleshlack. In fact, as soon as she heard the first note booming through the hallways, she was almost certain that the one to have the gall for all of this was Eddie. Niko Renzo on the drums didn't really surprise her either, since the two seemed to be close. But Urahara Daisuke, the delicate "prince" of her homeroom class, the one whose voice she still wasn't used to hearing because he was so damn meek, made her almost want to throw her hands in the air and yell "Nope!" Even if this wasn't the usual Daisuke of her class, this one had the nerve and apathy to walk out on her lecture about extracurriculars.

And now here he was, losing himself into a microphone...and swaying and thrusting like a madman. Well, maybe the board would let his little scrap go with this...

Icky thump handcuffed to a bunk robbed blind
Looked around and there was nobody else
Left alone I hit myself with a stone
Went home and learned how to clean up after myself

By the end, Daisuke was subtly catching his breath, while beads of sweat dotted his forehead behind his fringe of crimson hair. Sure, summer was beginning, and he was moving around a bit more than he was used to. But never having done something quite like performing, Daisuke was only now getting over the high that came from rocking out. The excitement that he felt hearing Eddie's and Niko's wall of sound was nothing compared to this.

Wide eyed and a bit bewildered, Daisuke turned to the two of them, shrugged, and quipped.

"You do this kinda thing alot, then?"

(The daring that was Eddie Rabbleshlack had originally started this because the faculty - or rather the school's support faculty, not the teachers, per se - had gotten on his case about things and he had a longstanding feud with those people. This was one form of his payback. another had just been to go Kamen Rider on their asses. Even still, this was the more fun of the two, because he had this audience. Right now, Daisuke had stepped up with his own request, blasting out those words with the music well. It was enjoyable, plus a break on Eddie's vocal cords. Granted, he had capacity, but he also had 16 bottles of water for the occasion, juuust in case. He noticed someone taking pictures, of course, but so what? People did that all the time. As for the teacher, Eddie just gave her a smile and a nod while she was there. When it was finally over...)

"You do this kinda thing alot, then?"

Eddie: Any chance I get. I was practically born to perform.

(Ask him about his old man sometime, the science dude with a mansion rigged to become a sonic amplifier/converter that plays music all the time and is an open boarding hall for college students.)

"I was practically born to perform."
Normally, when people said something like this, it was mostly for fluff and pride. But the matter-of-factly way Eddie said it, coupled with his actual command of music, almost made Daisuke think that there was a lot more than what that statement implied; as if he was literally conceived for the sake of music. Now, Daisuke wasn't exactly caught up over it. It was more like he wanted to shoot the shit rather than talk shit. Ask how Eddie got so good, see if he could turn it up to 11. But most importantly, how far he wanted this Glorious Movement to go.

But before he could bring any of it up, the bell went, signalling the end of lunch break. Grudgingly, the audience started shuffling out of the room. Daisuke felt like he didn't do enough showboating, so he kissed his teeth in annoyance as the room emptied.

Then he turned to Eddie and Niko. "So, how many heads you actually got for this Tune Platoon? This better not be it. I don't know much about the scene, but I know we can't do jack without someone on bass. And you don't want me playing anything. I've tried. I suck," he said, with a purely deadpan expression.


By now, the only person left in the room was a platinum haired boy, typing furiously on his phone, and totally oblivious to the now almost-empty room.

Kazahara Masaki.

A potential recruit?

(Eddie was not literally conceived for music. It would be more accurate to say that music was going to be a part of his destiny, given the nature of his surroundings growing up and so on. Even still, the badass boast had its place in life. He was meant to do things like this. Once the bell rang to end the lunch break, Eddie performed a victory dance with his guitar, putting it on his back.)

"So, how many heads you actually got for this Tune Platoon? This better not be it. I don't know much about the scene, but I know we can't do jack without someone on bass. And you don't want me playing anything. I've tried. I suck,"

(The red-haired wonder was clapped on the back by the Ed-meister in a friendly sort of fashion as he gave his answer...with wild gestures!)

Eddie: Oh no, my friend! This is only the beginning! We shall continue on until our army has filled its ranks, a great armada of music, an army that's driven by rhythm!

(Didn't quite rhyme, but it didn't have to. Eddie noticed Masaki standing there and LEAPT! He landed before the boy, superhero-style with a pelvic thrust working for him, and pointed at the fellow student.)

Eddie: YOU! Have you, by chance, any music ability what-so-EVAR?

(Oooh, subtle.)
