Ashitaka couldn't believe what he'd heard. There was an imminent terror attack planned on the island hovering over the Iwagakure Commonwealth, putting the lives of all of its civilians at risk! This was unacceptable and unforgivable. But if whoever was carrying out the attack had the capacity to actually damage the powerful seals holding it up in the air, there was little if anything he could do to stop them. Direct experience has proven time and again that he's useless in a fight, if not outright detrimental to whatever team he's a part of. Which meant that he had to do the best he could as a non-combatant.
His efforts however, would suffer just one. Little. Problem. He was a Konoha ninja and therefore not generally welcome in any of the Iwa villages, least of all with bad news. His warnings and calls to evacuate were taken as threats and met with jeers and thrown objects. Any efforts to appeal to village elders was met with similar scorn, as they were seen as attempts to coerce the communities back under Konohagakure's heel. He couldn't really deny those claims because he didn't know the truth of the matter, but in his mind their survival of the immediate crisis was more important. He was on his fifth hamlet and fourth failure to convince people to start moving when a series of screams directed his attention to the sky, wherein the veracity of his claims was confirmed: the dark shapes of four huge airships had appeared on the horizon and were growing quickly. Now people were willing to evacuate, but they were hardly in a listening mood. They pushed each other down and fought amongst themselves in their panicked rush to gather belongings, necessities, pets, and family and make their way to safety.
Ashitaka, meanwhile, ran around the towns and stole postcards and any other small items he could find that had the images of various buildings in the neighborhoods. He was pretty sure that they'd all be incredibly surprised to come back and find that several buildings had been reconstructed as quickly as they'd been demolished. But time was short, and the airships were looming ever closer...
