whitefrost: can you repeat that (puzzled)

Time for some A+ info-gathering

A recent arrival is back in the Nexus, this time of his own volition. Rather than stop to talk to anyone right away, Hitsugaya spends half the day simply wandering around, noting landmarks and the different districts and trying to get a feel for navigating here. In fact, some residents may notice him flickering into existence - in midair - at various points across the Nexus for a short time before disappearing again.

Later, he's back in the Plaza, familiarizing himself with one of the Nexus Terminals. Upon his initial inspection, the thing seems vaguely similar to the systems used by Squad 12 and Soul Society's archives, appearing to be some sort of... half-database, half-communications system. (What Adina was referring to when she mentioned computers, he hopes.)

As such, he guesses there has to be some sort of staff to manage it - and perhaps even answer some questions. Hoping to get some much-needed information from a knowledgeable source, he spends a fair amount of time hunt-and-peck-ing at the keys, and after a lot of tapping and backspacing and mulling things over, he considers it good enough and hits Submit.

(Does he have any idea that it's about to take over devices everywhere? No. No he does not.)

This is Captain Toshiro Hitsugaya. I'm relatively new to the Nexus and have some topics I would like to discuss. Any information that can be provided would be greatly appreciated.

First, I've found a house along the outskirts of the Nexus that seems to have been unoccupied for some time. As it would be useful for a number of reasons, I would like to make it my residence here. Is there anything I need to do in order to claim it in some way?

Second, I would prefer to keep my skills sharp while I'm here, however I'm concerned about the so-called AV field. It was mentioned to me that it prevents non-consensual violence. Does this mean that sparring sessions would work around the field provided the involved parties willingly agree to it? If so, are there any preexisting groups that offer such things or would be open to the idea?

Also on the topic of the AV field, it looks as though a battle was fought recently. Was the field somehow affected, and if so, has it been restored?

Then, almost as an afterthought, the final line of text reads:

Lastly, what are the summers like here?

...And that's that, it seems.

If anyone happens to be passing by, he'll be at the Terminal for a while yet, poking the keys every so often as he investigates this strange thing called "the internet."
