 [Blub. 

Compared to the rest of the populace, Kuukaku just got gills. Which means she's currently clinging to a flagpole on some building somewhere with her legs. Its a miracle of anime physics that her skirt isn't flying up or her boobs aren't popping out of her top.]

Okay, does this shit happen a lot around here? I mean, girl goes to sleep on a comfy pile of debris and wakes up to a crab trying to get in her hair. As the bureaucracy of crackpots have informed me, they've busted a leak upstream, which is why we're all swimming to work. But thats not the important thing!

I'm Shiba Kuukaku, best fireworks technician you'll ever meet and Im looking for stuff. Namely somewhere to sleep and materials to restart my lab. Among them black powder or charcoal, saltpeter and sulfur, strontium or lithium salts, aluminum, calcium, magnesium, barium, copper, large amounts of iron and steel, or structures that would support a forge. Payment agreed to on a case by case basis. 

And before one of you smart asses asks, the only parting of my legs I'd do for anyone would be to kick your pelvic bone directly under your skull.

In this place? It leads to wishful thinking. [Have a smile.] I might have a bit of lye in reserve still, if you're lucky enough to find fertilizer. I suggest taking a look in the indoor market place.

You don't think big, you'll always be stuck with little results.

Lye and sulphur wont get me what I need. I need gunpowder, if I'm going to make fireworks.

And that's how you make it when you're out of supplies. Saltpeter can be mixed from lye and fertilizer. The rest is easy.

I know that. I've only been making powder for a few centuries. But that method yields some weak ass stuff. Have to have a goddamned ton of it to do anything.

Very true. I have been told that a richer scale of minerals can be found in the Wastes - but this isn't something I can test, sadly.

The place beyond the wall, you mean? Hmm. Guess you wouldn't know how dangerous it is out there, then.

[Not that Kuukaku thinks she can't handle it.]

Too dangerous for me, at least. Going out here would be a death sentence for someone without the necessary means of defense.

Nice to meet you, Shiba-san. My name is Sango, and this [PCD pans to a certain two-tailed cat that is now a two-tailed kittyfish] is Kirara. I don't know about any of the other things, but I found a forge a week or two ago and began fixing it up and working in it. I assume that when this event ends, it'll be functional again. Right now, it's probably submerged.

Found a forge, you say? How much work did it need?

Kuukaku-san, then. [Misinterpretation? Of course.]

It didn't need much at all. It looked like someone had been using it previously, though not for several weeks at least.

[B| fine then, she'll comply.]

Fairly large. I'm able to work side by side with Sokka-san there with few space issues, and this is counting the space that's taken up by works-in-progress and future projects.

[The Feudal Era doesn't generally have cannons, so yes, that description helps.]

I do now. I don't know if there's any other places that would work for something like that, though.

It can prove of the essence to keep even your enemies close. Physicality of the nature you describe would be counterproductive in this regard.

Many of those ingredients you are looking for are being reserved for creation of gun or flashpowder. However, it's possible some here may be able to separate some of the components, such as iron, from metal objects already present.

Components are found, scattered about; it's unknown where they come from, but presumably from other worlds.

There are a few individuals here working to create gunpowder here already. However supplies are very limited for it.

One is my friend, Dean, however he's in need of it and unlikely to part with any. I believe there is it least one other person as well, but I'm not certain who.
