welcome to #suburbansenshi3

[01:57] *** The Planet Karn, the Great Cavern of the Sisterhood
[01:57] *** Paisley Pythia Peinforte [paisely_p@firstcircle.karn03-kasterborusrelay.sen] has joined #suburbansenshi3
[01:57] <@spiritflame> konbanwa paisley pythia peinforte
[01:57] <Reverend Mother Ohica> Welcome back, Sister.
[01:58] * Paisley Pythia Peinforte kneels before the Reverend Mother
[01:58] <Paisley Pythia Peinforte> There has come a great crisis.
[01:58] <Reverend Mother Ohica> As was foretold.
[01:58] <Reverend Mother Ohica> Soon, all will hang in the balance.
[01:59] <Paisley Pythia Peinforte> The enemy has placed a taint in my mind.
[01:59] <Reverend Mother Ohica> We have seen it.
[02:00] * The other sisters chant "Danger~ Danger~ Death~!"
[02:00] <Reverend Mother Ohica> You seek our help to remove this... contaminant?
[02:00] <Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Remove? Hell no.
[02:01] * Reverend Mother Ohica raises an eyebrow
[02:01] <Paisley Pythia Peinforte> They have foolishly opened a doorway into my mind. I want to swing that door the other way.
[02:01] <Reverend Mother Ohica> A dangerous goal.
[02:02] * Reverend Mother Ohica kneels to go eye-to-eye with Sister Pythia.
[02:02] <Reverend Mother Ohica> You have done many impossible things, young Sister.
[02:03] <Reverend Mother Ohica> You saved us from ourselves and spread the Sisterhood to the stars.
[02:03] <Reverend Mother Ohica> You have battled the Guardians themselves and lived to tell the tale.
[02:04] <Reverend Mother Ohica> You have even braved the root of all creation, to save your friend.
[02:04] <Reverend Mother Ohica> But, you are but human. Do not forget this.
[02:04] <Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I thought we'd gotten over this...
[02:05] <Reverend Mother Ohica> I speak not of your race, but your flesh. Your brain, my sister. It is not as resilent as that of a Karnian.
[02:06] <Reverend Mother Ohica> The powers you would harness would burn it out as surely as a lit match devours itself, leaving nothing but a charred husk in its wake.
[02:06] <Reverend Mother Ohica> You have reached your limit, Sister Pythia. Your body can take no more.
[02:07] <Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I came... from nothing.
[02:07] <Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I was woven into this world to fill another woman's shoes.
[02:07] <Reverend Mother Ohica> You have moved far beyond that, now.
[02:08] <Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I have friends. And family. And people I care for.
[02:08] <Paisley Pythia Peinforte> And out there, somewhere, some blasted girl is threatening to bring it all down.
[02:08] <Paisley Pythia Peinforte> And boasting. And bragging about how it's all futile and hopless and helpless and we're all doomed.
[02:09] <Paisley Pythia Peinforte> So we need to stop living the way we live just so we can have a chance to eke out some half-hearted success.
[02:09] <Paisley Pythia Peinforte> And the scary thing is half the people back home are buying into it.
[02:10] <Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I'm a Sister of the Flame. I bring the light of knowledge and hope.
[02:10] <Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I can't sit here and say "this is my limit."
[02:10] <Paisley Pythia Peinforte> If I can't exceed it, everything I love will fall into despair.
[02:11] <Reverend Mother Ohica> We can make the circle, and join your mind, and raise the power from its depths... but make no mistake. You will die.
[02:11] <Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I'll take that chance.
[02:11] <Reverend Mother Ohica> It is not a chance.
[02:11] <Reverend Mother Ohica> It is a certainty.
[02:12] * Paisley Pythia Peinforte exhales slowly.
[02:12] <Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Then so be it.
[02:12] <Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Make the circle.
[02:13] * Reverend Mother Ohica frowns, but accedes to her demand and gathers the sisters around her.
[02:13] * The Sisters chant "Sacred fire, Sacred flame, Sacred fire, Sacred flame... "
[02:14] <Reverend Mother Ohica> Sisters, join your minds together in a circle, and join Sister Pythia... give her the knowledge and the power to control that which darkens her soul...
[02:15] * The Sisters chant "JOIN! JOIN! JOIN! JOIN!"
[02:16] * Paisley Pythia Peinforte feels the tremendous mental power of the sisterhood crashing into her mind from all directions, setting every synapse alight like a blazing fire
[02:16] * Paisley Pythia Peinforte can see.... can FEEL... can UNDERSTAND in a way that transcends human perception...
[02:16] * Paisley Pythia Peinforte sees the string, the cracks, the mechanisms....
[02:17] * Paisley Pythia Peinforte is so close... so VERY close to controlling that door...
[02:17] * Paisley Pythia Peinforte grits her teeth, blood streaming from her nose, her head feeling so hot...
[02:17] <Reverend Mother Ohica> Stop this, child, it is too much!
[02:18] <Paisley Pythia Peinforte> NO! MORE! MORE! GIVE ME EVERYTHING!
[02:18] * Reverend Mother Ohica tries to hold back, but Paisley is pulling now, leading the circle, setting the increasingly frantic pace
[02:19] * Paisley Pythia Peinforte canseeittheholestructureshecantasteitohgodthemultidimensionalitythat'showitisyesicandoicandoiti
[02:19] * Paisley Pythia Peinforte SCREAMS OUT, eyes rolling into the back of her head, her mind blowing out
[02:20] * Paisley Pythia Peinforte drops to the sand, dead.
[02:21] * Reverend Mother Ohica and the other sisters go silent...
[02:21] * Paisley Pythia Peinforte lies there, in the cave, the light of the sacred flame flickering by her body
[02:22] * Reverend Mother Ohica lets out a held breath.
[02:22] <Reverend Mother Ohica> The Elixir.
[02:22] <Reverend Mother Ohica> /mr looks to the other Sisters, who are in a stunned silence.
[02:22] <Reverend Mother Ohica> THE ELIXIR!
[02:23] * The other Sisters scurry, and quickly produce a golden goblet, filled with a gassy broth.
[02:24] * Reverend Mother Ohica takes the goblet and presses it to Paisley's lips, dripping the elixir into her throat...
[02:25] <Reverend Mother Ohica> Chant with me sisters. Form the Block Transfer Matrix.
[02:26] <Sister Parth> But what is the template, Reverend Mother? Her mind is burnt out.
[02:26] <Reverend Mother Ohica> No, only her flesh. Her mind is still with us. And as for the Template....
[02:26] * Reverend Mother Ohica points to a scroll depicting the ancient Goddess Pythia.
[02:27] * The other Sisters look at her askance.
[02:27] <Reverend Mother Ohica> Was it not foretold? Was that not why we gave her the sacred name so many years ago?
[02:27] <Reverend Mother Ohica> I cannot hold her in my mind much longer. Quickly!
[02:28] * Reverend Mother Ohica settles back into the circle
[02:28] <Reverend Mother Ohica> Rise... Rise... Rise... Rise...
[02:29] * The other Sisters mathematically model their own brains and overlay the templates onto Paisley's grey matter, which has been rejuvenated by the Elixir of Life.
[02:29] * They chant "Live! Live! Live!" in unison.
[02:30] * Paisley Pythia Peinforte splutters, and lets out a long, ragged breath.
[02:30] <Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Vision blurry, she reaches out for a Phial in her pocket, and uncorks it on sheer will power
[02:30] * Vision blurry, she reaches out for a Phial in her pocket, and uncorks it on sheer will power
[02:31] * Paisley Pythia Peinforte drinks down the last of the Waters of Earth 1337 Prime
[02:31] * Paisley Pythia Peinforte 's eyes FLY open.
[02:31] * Paisley Pythia Peinforte 's mind withdraws into itself then EXPLODES outwards like a Tsunami
[02:32] * Paisley Pythia Peinforte slowly pushes herself up in the dirt as the Sisters' chant spontaneously changes. She can SEE now. She can UNDERSTAND the way they do. She... IS.
[02:33] * Paisley Pythia Peinforte slowly rises to her feet, bloody and dirty, and disheveled as only one cry can be heard acros Karn...
[02:34] * Paisley Pythia Peinforte grins
[02:34] <Paisley Pythia Peinforte> - I'm back, b[BLEEP]ches. -
[02:34] <Paisley Pythia Peinforte>

[22:52] <@spiritflame> Current Location is: b[BLEEP]ches and hoes
[22:52] *** Nimble Sky-Dragoon has joined #suburbansenshi3
[22:52] <@spiritflame> konbanwa nimble sky-dragoon
[22:52] * Jedda Rain stands, arms crossed, waiting.
[22:53] <Jedda Rain> Finally.
[22:53] * Nimble Sky-Dragoon looks at Jedda Rain.
[22:53] *** Jedda Rain is

More information about her is Here.
Her image Song is: Fully Alive by Flyleaf. She is Level 1.

[22:53] * Nimble Sky-Dragoon bows while hovering. "Greetings, My Lady."
[22:54] <Jedda Rain> Welcome to my house :)
[22:54] <Jedda Rain> Would you like some tea?
[22:54] <Nimble Sky-Dragoon> I thank you, most kindly!
[22:54] * Nimble Sky-Dragoon looks around if there is actually ground to stand upon.
[22:55] <Nimble Sky-Dragoon> I must politely decline, I am not a drinker, I fear. Thank you earnestly for the gesture.
[22:55] * Jedda Rain is standing in front of a very large tower.
[22:55] * Jedda Rain has plenty of ground.
[22:55] <Jedda Rain> I cannot allow you to pass just yet.
[22:55] <Jedda Rain> You need a full party.
[22:56] <Nimble Sky-Dragoon> I do not wish to pass, necessarily?
[22:56] * Nimble Sky-Dragoon is now known as Filibert Wright.
[22:56] <Jedda Rain> Well, then.
[22:56] * Filibert Wright. approaches, and bows again. "My name is Filibert. Filibert Wright, and I am the Emissary of Enclave. I bid you greetings."
[22:56] <Jedda Rain> What can I help you with?
[22:56] * Jedda Rain holds out a hand to shake it.
[22:57] <Filibert Wright.> I am afraid I have not had the pleasure of an introduction?
[22:57] * Filibert Wright. is ever the gentleman, and shakes her hand.
[22:57] <Jedda Rain> I'm Jedda Rain.
[22:58] <Jedda Rain> I'm sure you've heard of me by now.
[22:58] <Filibert Wright> It is a pleasure to meet you, though I truly wish it were under better circumstances, Lady Rain.
[22:58] * Jedda Rain shrugs.
[22:58] <Filibert Wright> Actually, I know nothing of you, or very very little.
[22:58] <Jedda Rain> Hah!
[22:58] <Filibert Wright> I am certain, however, that you could tell me better than another could. I'm quite willing to listen to your story.
[22:58] <Jedda Rain> She's only gone on about wanting to punch me, then.
[22:58] * Jedda Rain wills a chair. This is her dimension after all.
[22:58] * Jedda Rain sits.
[22:59] * Jedda Rain drinks her tea and offers him a chair as well.
[22:59] <Filibert Wright> And here I am unable to pull your chair back for you. Truly a pity, but I thank you.
[22:59] * Filibert Wright tips his hat, and sits.
[22:59] <Jedda Rain> Dimensions are fun like that.
[23:00] <Jedda Rain> I may smoke a cigarette halfway through this.
[23:00] <Jedda Rain> A long time ago, ten or so generations, there were two families.
[23:00] * Filibert Wright nods, politely, and listens.
[23:00] <Jedda Rain> House Aster and House Rain.
[23:02] <Jedda Rain> The Asters were a heavily catholic group. The Rains were protestant.
[23:03] <spiritflame> Jedda Rain rolls 2d6 [ 3, 2 ]
[23:03] * Filibert Wright nods his head politely.
[23:03] <spiritflame> Filibert Wright rolls 1d20 [ 20 ]
[23:03] <Filibert Wright> Yes. I have recently become familiar with that cultural divide.
[23:04] <Filibert Wright> Please, continue.
[23:04] <Jedda Rain> There had been clashes, fights, the inquisition, so on so forth.
[23:05] <Jedda Rain> The houses didn't like each other.
[23:05] <Jedda Rain> One day, a member of the Aster family conducted witchcraft.
[23:05] * Filibert Wright sighs, and hangs his head. "The familiar and sad story."
[23:05] * Filibert Wright raises one eye.
[23:05] <Jedda Rain> Suddenly, they could see everything.
[23:06] <Jedda Rain> They foretold things that we could not have known and had the upper hand.
[23:06] <Filibert Wright> Did your ancestors begrudge them this knowledge?
[23:07] <Jedda Rain> Mmmmhm.
[23:07] <Filibert Wright> I'm so sorry. Please continue.
[23:07] <Jedda Rain> The family lines tended to end in violence at that point. We swore to end the Aster's witchcraft.
[23:08] <Jedda Rain> So the first assassination was committed.
[23:08] <Filibert Wright> Because you felt it was a morally repugnant choice, or because of personal vendetta?
[23:08] * Jedda Rain sets her tea down.
[23:08] <Jedda Rain> I can't answer that, it was long before me.
[23:08] <Filibert Wright> Your ancestors, I mean. Of course.
[23:08] <Filibert Wright> Certainly.
[23:08] * Jedda Rain draws a cigarette.
[23:08] <Jedda Rain> Do you mind if I?
[23:08] <Jedda Rain> I haven't had a smoke like this in years.
[23:09] <Filibert Wright> I am not here to condemn you, especially for personal vices. Help yourself.
[23:10] <Filibert Wright> Shall I light it for you?
[23:10] <Jedda Rain> If you wouldn't mind
[23:11] * Filibert Wright leans in close and does so.
[23:11] * Jedda Rain leans in and lights it, drawing in.
[23:11] <Jedda Rain> Thank you.
[23:11] <Jedda Rain> Really, you're quite polite.
[23:11] <Jedda Rain> No threats to punch me.
[23:12] <Jedda Rain> No rage. I am a pretty terrible person I will not deny.
[23:13] <Jedda Rain> Anyway, where was I.
[23:13] <Jedda Rain> Right, the first death.
[23:13] <Jedda Rain> The war began and there was bloodshed regularly at first.
[23:14] <Jedda Rain> Then after a time a new seer came forward from the Asters.
[23:14] <Filibert Wright> May I ask you a question?
[23:14] <Filibert Wright> Why do you feel you are a terrible person?
[23:14] <Jedda Rain> She declared that her family lay down their blades and the Rains do the same.
[23:15] <Jedda Rain> ...Heh.
[23:15] <Jedda Rain> I've been told it enough times.
[23:15] <Jedda Rain> And what my existence is committed to doing is certainly not good and glorious.
[23:16] <Filibert Wright> Nobody gets a choice in the purpose of their existence.
[23:16] <Jedda Rain> Predetermination.
[23:16] * Jedda Rain takes a draw from her cigarette.
[23:17] * Filibert Wright sighest the deepest sigh that he ever has. "Chance and fate could be said to make slaves of us all."
[23:18] <Filibert Wright> I came here because I hoped to get to know you, and ask why everything is happening. I do not want anybody else to get hurt.
[23:18] * Filibert Wright looks at Jedda Rain.
[23:18] *** Jedda Rain is

More information about her is Here.
Her image Song is: Fully Alive by Flyleaf. She is Level 1.

[23:19] <Filibert Wright> Can I ask you something, Madame?
[23:20] <Filibert Wright> What happened to the person who desired a truce between the two feuding sides?
[23:20] <Jedda Rain> Heh.
[23:20] <Jedda Rain> You mean my sister.
[23:20] * Filibert Wright smiles kindly. "I want to know, no matter who it was."
[23:23] <Filibert Wright> You can tell me, I promise.
[23:23] <Jedda Rain> Fast forward to....the late 1900s. The 70s were a wild time. I wasn't around for them.
[23:24] * Filibert Wright nods, and listens.
[23:25] <Jedda Rain> My sister, Claudia Rain, met her husband to be, Keith Aster.
[23:25] <Jedda Rain> Times had changed, things had mostly settled.
[23:25] <Jedda Rain> Victoria Aster, the latest seer had chosen not to will the sword. She hadn't foretold it.
[23:26] <Filibert Wright> "Chosen not to will the sword?"
[23:27] <Jedda Rain> The Asters great vision is their death.
[23:27] <Jedda Rain> Once that happens, the Rain's purpose is complete.
[23:28] <Jedda Rain> Until that cycle is complete and the final Aster dies by the blade, we continue.
[23:29] <Jedda Rain> But once the Rain is designated, we defy fate until we carry out our calling.
[23:29] <Jedda Rain> My sister married her husband and united the two, with the hopes that perhaps this would all end.
[23:29] <Jedda Rain> I loved my sister.
[23:30] <Jedda Rain> She showed me kindness where my parents showed me nothing.
[23:30] <Filibert Wright> She sounds very noble-hearted to try to end the bloodshed.
[23:30] * Jedda Rain extinguishes the cigarette on her arm.
[23:30] <Jedda Rain> She was.
[23:30] <Jedda Rain> She became pregnant with twins.
[23:31] <Jedda Rain> Victoria knew something was coming. She said something at the christmas table that was off.
[23:31] <Jedda Rain> She knew my sister would not make it after childbirth.
[23:31] * Jedda Rain crumples the cigarette in her hands.
[23:32] * Jedda Rain drops the ashes.
[23:32] <Jedda Rain> And lo and behold.
[23:32] * Filibert Wright gestures to the cigarette. "May I get you another?"
[23:33] * Jedda Rain shakes her head.
[23:33] <Jedda Rain> This was enough for me.
[23:33] <Filibert Wright> As you wish, Madame.
[23:34] <Jedda Rain> My sister died in childbirth. I stood at the funeral, watching them lower the casket. I stared into the grave and I felt alone.
[23:35] <Jedda Rain> And Victoria Aster in her beautiful red hair and dark dress walked up to me, and didn't tell me that she was sorry for my losses.
[23:35] <Filibert Wright> What of her children?
[23:35] <Jedda Rain> They survived.
[23:35] <Filibert Wright> Your sister's children?
[23:35] * Jedda Rain nods.
[23:35] * Filibert Wright allows himself a slight smile.
[23:35] <Jedda Rain> She told me I would be fated to end her.
[23:35] <Filibert Wright> So you are wrathful at Victoria Aster for her slight?
[23:35] <Jedda Rain> I made a promise that night that I would not just end her, I would end them.
[23:35] * Jedda Rain nods.
[23:37] <Filibert Wright> You wish to kill your extended family? This is what you mean to say?
[23:37] <Jedda Rain> Mmmhm.
[23:37] <Jedda Rain> I was intent on finishing this once and for all
[23:37] <Filibert Wright> Might I interject a question?
[23:38] <Filibert Wright> Whom did you feel you were making that promise of bloodshed to?
[23:38] <Jedda Rain> Clarify?
[23:39] <Filibert Wright> You said you made a promise that night that you would not just slay Victoria, but "end them [all.]"
[23:40] <Filibert Wright> Whom do you feel you were promising that outcome to?
[23:40] <Jedda Rain> It was to myself, I think.
[23:41] * Filibert Wright nods. "You think. I Understand. Please go on, if you wish. I promised I would listen to your story, and I mean to keep it."
[23:42] <Jedda Rain> It was a long time ago.
[23:42] <Jedda Rain> I did tell Victoria that I would end not only her but her children.
[23:42] <Jedda Rain> She looked pretty mortified
[23:44] <Filibert Wright> Wouldn't anyone feel terrified when their loved one's are threatened?
[23:44] <Filibert Wright> Losing those you care about---or even the fear of losing them, can make anyone act irrationally, I might add.
[23:44] <Filibert Wright> Is that the end of your story?
[23:45] * Jedda Rain shakes her head
[23:45] <Filibert Wright> Then by all means.
[23:45] * Filibert Wright smiles, and gestures for her to continue.
[23:46] <Jedda Rain> Time passed, they moved to Australia. I was intent on following but my family refused so I corrected it. I fulfilled one half of my prophecy after that with Victoria, I was intent on fulfilling my promise
[23:48] <Jedda Rain> And as I discovered, there was a new prophecy naming me the next to kill Keeran Aster, my nephew.
[23:48] <Jedda Rain> And so. I tried but they tangled themselves with something more powerful.
[23:49] <Filibert Wright> And what was this?
[23:49] <Jedda Rain> The residents of the Ten'Aino household.
[23:49] <Jedda Rain> Michael [BLEEP] and his friends. Elda Aster's boyfriend I believe.
[23:51] <Filibert Wright> "Michael?" Do you mean Sunnyside?
[23:51] <Jedda Rain> He has fragmented since I last saw him.
[23:51] <Jedda Rain> Possibly.
[23:52] <Filibert Wright> Fragmented.
[23:52] <Filibert Wright> Sounds familiar.
[23:52] <Filibert Wright> I Apologize, I did not mean to interrupt.
[23:53] <Jedda Rain> Tis fine.
[23:53] <Jedda Rain> Where was I....Right. They defeated me, so I brought back others.
[23:53] <Jedda Rain> I did kill him finally. And Elda.
[23:53] <Jedda Rain> Once the playing field was leveled.
[23:53] <Jedda Rain> Finally, I could die. And Shaldra Darkness brought the blow.
[23:54] * Filibert Wright looks like he is going to ask something, but is silent, nodding and smiling.
[23:57] <Jedda Rain> ...So Someone brought him back to life.
[23:57] <Jedda Rain> And in turn, I woke up.
[23:58] <Jedda Rain> And I was found.
[23:58] <Jedda Rain> And here we are. You have a question.
[23:58] <Jedda Rain> Feel free to ask it.
[23:59] <Filibert Wright> So you intend to slay them now? Your extended family?
[23:59] <Jedda Rain> Mmmhm.
[23:59] <Filibert Wright> The kin of the people your sister married and loved, and desired enjoy peace?
[23:59] * Jedda Rain pulls out a card. It is the image of Jinan Aster under The Devil.
[00:00] <Filibert Wright> ^desired to enjoy peace?
[00:00] <Jedda Rain> This is what happens when the Asters continue.
[00:00] <Filibert Wright> I don't follow you.... what happens?
[00:02] <Jedda Rain> Jinan Aster foresaw her death not at the hands of anyone of my family.
[00:02] <Jedda Rain> She chose to defy everyone.
[00:03] <Filibert Wright> What was the result of this defiance?
[00:04] <Jedda Rain> She will go mad with power and consume herself but take as many with her as she can.
[00:04] <Filibert Wright> You believe this with all your heart?
[00:04] <Jedda Rain> Right now in this time fragment that is under the cult of NightFall but if that were to change it would be under the resentment of others.
[00:04] * Jedda Rain nods.
[00:05] <Jedda Rain> I wish to sleep.
[00:05] <Jedda Rain> I seek death, now.
[00:05] <Filibert Wright> Can I ask you one question, then?
[00:05] <Jedda Rain> Yes.
[00:05] <Filibert Wright> Do you believe that your sister, who wanted peace, would be proud of you for what you have done?
[00:05] <Jedda Rain> Heh.
[00:05] <Jedda Rain> You are the second person to ask me that.
[00:05] <Filibert Wright> I earnestly wonder it, My Lady.
[00:07] <Filibert Wright> Others I know might ask you what you expect to experience after that death, if you spend your life dedicated to blood and vengeance.
[00:07] <Filibert Wright> Could you name something that would make you stop doing this? Stop harming people?
[00:07] <Jedda Rain> Something that could make me stop doing this.
[00:09] * Jedda Rain smiles.
[00:09] <Filibert Wright> Well, besides the obvious thing, I mean.
[00:09] <Jedda Rain> I'll make a bet with you.
[00:09] <Jedda Rain> Surprise me.
[00:09] * Filibert Wright looks confused.
[00:10] <Jedda Rain> Find a way to take the mad woman and set her right.
[00:10] <Jedda Rain> I can't answer that question.
[00:10] <Jedda Rain> But maybe you can.
[00:10] <Jedda Rain> Maybe you or someone out there can find a way for me to stop this madness.
[00:11] <Jedda Rain> Keeran is locked somewhere in this puzzle.
[00:11] <Filibert Wright> Well, besides the fact that you could stop anytime, of course.
[00:11] <Jedda Rain> Elda's crystal has been repaired and is locked somewhere here.
[00:11] <Jedda Rain> Give me a reason to stop it.
[00:11] <Jedda Rain> Find me a reason to try to live
[00:11] <Filibert Wright> Helping others instead of hurting them tends to do the trick for me. You are not the only one here troubled by your destiny.
[00:12] <Filibert Wright> I truly understand your feeling of desperation, but, even though some things cannot be overcome, it is noble and worthwhile to struggle against them nonetheless.
[00:13] <Jedda Rain> Perhaps you can convince the party of otherwise
[00:13] <Filibert Wright> I do not flatter or praise fate. I find no kindness in its hands, but if you made the promise to kill those individuals yourself, could you not let it go?
[00:14] <Filibert Wright> I came here because I saw people dying, and I was willing to accept the risks of whatever might await me here to stop it.
[00:14] <Filibert Wright> I am, for the record, pleased that it was you.
[00:16] * Jedda Rain nods.
[00:16] <Jedda Rain> I don't know if I can let it go after all this effort.
[00:16] <Filibert Wright> So you believe that your actions have been ordained? That you are bound to do them because of the oaths you have made?
[00:17] <Jedda Rain> They are not dead yet. Well, Elda is technically.
[00:18] <Jedda Rain> I feel that I am. I feel that that which has bound me to this will continue until I have fulfilled it.
[00:18] * Jedda Rain sighs
[00:18] <Jedda Rain> It is a shame that Miss Shaldra Darkness has been lost to obscurity.
[00:18] <Jedda Rain> I actually liked her.
[00:19] <Filibert Wright> My master once said words almost exactly those words.
[00:19] <Filibert Wright> About following things to the end.
[00:19] <Filibert Wright> I wish I could persuade you of the emptiness you shall feel in your heart, once the last blood is upon your hands.
[00:20] <Jedda Rain> Perhaps you can build a party
[00:20] <Jedda Rain> And have them convince me.
[00:20] <Filibert Wright> A party?
[00:20] <Jedda Rain> Or Paisley can punch me in the c[BLEEP]t <_<
[00:20] <Filibert Wright> To stop? Without harming anyone else?
[00:21] <Jedda Rain> Find me a reason to live. A reason to....reform.
[00:21] <Filibert Wright> I shall gladly accept this arrangement. I was in utter fear you would be compelled to continue.
[00:22] <Jedda Rain> Slumber for eight or so years is...
[00:22] <Jedda Rain> Calming.
[00:22] <Filibert Wright> You refer to death?
[00:22] <Jedda Rain> mmmm
[00:23] <Jedda Rain> This shall either end in my return to death or in my reform.
[00:24] <Jedda Rain> I will give you a few pointers.
[00:24] * Jedda Rain points behind her.
[00:24] * Filibert Wright smiles. "I believe that helping others, and having them tearfully thank you and mean it, will give you far greater satisfaction than seeing more blood.
[00:24] <Jedda Rain> This is the Tower. I gave Paisley The Fool card. To advance through here you will need that card.
[00:25] <Jedda Rain> And please, Bring Claudia.
[00:25] <Filibert Wright> I shall do this only if you promise to me, with the SAME EARNESTNESS you swore to harm those who have wronged you, that you will not harm or antagonize the people I bring.
[00:26] <Jedda Rain> Well.
[00:26] <Jedda Rain> Directly, I promise.
[00:26] <Jedda Rain> The dungeon will be dangerous.
[00:26] <Filibert Wright> Must it be this way?
[00:26] * Jedda Rain nods.
[00:27] <Filibert Wright> I believe there are those who would welcome you in earnest and open arms if you harmed nobody else.
[00:27] * Filibert Wright kneels. "I would only be the first."
[00:27] * Jedda Rain rises.
[00:28] <Jedda Rain> Thank you for listening.
[00:28] <Filibert Wright> I plead with you, my lady, not to invite others to come here bearing swords.
[00:28] <Filibert Wright> All beings tend to assume that swords will solve the next problem, after they have solved the first one.
[00:28] <Filibert Wright> This is why I was willing to come alone.
[00:29] <Filibert Wright> May I ask you to earnestly consider something? Please?
[00:29] <Jedda Rain> My god.
[00:29] <Jedda Rain> You are the first to understand.
[00:30] <Jedda Rain> We seek wit, not force.
[00:30] * Filibert Wright looks up, with a noble but sad look upon his face. "Is what you are doing truly bringing you satisfaction?"
[00:30] <Jedda Rain> ...
[00:30] <Jedda Rain> I'm not certain?
[00:30] <Filibert Wright> If it is not, and you are still lonely, I beg you to listen to the people I shall bring.
[00:30] <Jedda Rain> Very well.
[00:32] <Jedda Rain> Wits and consequence.
[00:32] <Filibert Wright> Then, in the recognition of our mutual promise, will you please suspend hostilities until such a group that employs wisdom instead of force can be found?
[00:32] <Jedda Rain> That is the theme I have adopted now.
[00:32] <Jedda Rain> Very well.
[00:32] <Jedda Rain> I will no longer meddle.
[00:33] <Jedda Rain> My counterpart is a different story.
[00:33] * Filibert Wright is smiling, happily.
[00:34] <Filibert Wright> Wit and Wisdom I believe I understand, but what do you mean of consequence?
[00:34] <Jedda Rain> Every action has a reaction
[00:35] <Jedda Rain> I contemplate whether or not mistakes that are made are simply made with the assumption that they can be undone.
[00:35] * Filibert Wright sighs.
[00:35] <Jedda Rain> You send out a spell to kill every single spider and every single insect.
[00:35] <Jedda Rain> But it is fine, because you can easily fix it.
[00:35] <Jedda Rain> Death was never final there.
[00:36] <Filibert Wright> My Lady, I have personally learned that much of the suffering that takes place upon the world I have left is because those who allow and perpetuate it have convinced themselves that it is "necessary."
[00:36] <Jedda Rain> With any hope this is a teaching moment.
[00:36] <Filibert Wright> I do not share that view. I have been told many times that I am a fool for talking, and that I should fight instead.
[00:37] <Jedda Rain> You are wise.
[00:38] <Filibert Wright> Many has been the time that I have tried to reason with beings that were claimed to be mindless, and begged them to cease fighting, but I had my reasons.
[00:38] <Jedda Rain> Had anyone else come in here guns blazing, falcon punches ready, this would not have ended well.
[00:38] <Filibert Wright> My lady, the use of Force NEVER ends well.
[00:39] <Jedda Rain> Mmmmmm.
[00:39] <Filibert Wright> I for one do not believe that the ability to reverse death can also assuage the anger or the slain, or the nightmarish pain of their last moments, or the heartache felt by their loved ones.
[00:39] <Filibert Wright> ^anger of the slain.
[00:40] <Jedda Rain> Heh.
[00:40] <Jedda Rain> May you bring a teaching moment to not only me but to the party you bring as well.
[00:41] <Jedda Rain> I will close the rifts with the exception of one.
[00:41] <Jedda Rain> But for me to do that I will need to send you away now.
[00:41] <Filibert Wright> The task set before me was to become a hero. I shall endeavor to do exactly that. In that sense, I must remind you that many are willing to resort to force after they have become convinced that there is no other option. Can you PLEASE... before you do that... give some form of evidence that there is indeed another option?
[00:42] <Filibert Wright> I am familiar with worlds where the creator controls all things. With that power, is there not some gesture you can offer to prove the hope of reason and discourse?
[00:42] <Filibert Wright> Even here, where you are at your strongest?
[00:42] * Filibert Wright is still kneeling, he has not gotten up.
[00:43] <Filibert Wright> I could offer a suggestion, if you are at a loss?
[00:44] <Filibert Wright> Whenever you are ready.
[00:46] <Jedda Rain> I will do my best.
[00:46] <Jedda Rain> What is your suggestion?
[00:49] <Filibert Wright> Create an embassy. Right here, right now, and lift no hand in wrath, so that an attack would be an invasion. Staff if with ordinary people, who have no weapons, and cannot fight back. This, I hope, shall give pause to the self-righteous.
[00:49] <Filibert Wright> And... should you do this... I will ally myself with you.
[00:49] * Jedda Rain smiles
[00:49] <Jedda Rain> This is not that simple.
[00:50] * Filibert Wright is saddened.
[00:50] <Filibert Wright> Can you, then, give or produce ANY token that you are serious about cessation of attack until negotiations commence?
[00:51] * Jedda Rain holds up her staff and taps it down.
[00:51] * Filibert Wright winces, and hopes.
[00:52] <Jedda Rain> The other side is safe for now.
[00:52] * Filibert Wright raises one eyebrow, not quite comprehending.
[00:52] <Jedda Rain> I will consult with the my dimension.
[00:52] <Filibert Wright> The Other Side, my lady?
[00:52] <Jedda Rain> The other side of my dimension here.
[00:52] <Jedda Rain> Perhaps an embassy may be in order.
[00:53] <Jedda Rain> But for now I cannot promise that.
[00:53] <Jedda Rain> Now, I may humbly request that you may leave so that I may consult.
[00:53] <Filibert Wright> That is not the promise that I care about. I care about the one to yourself, to listen to the advocates of peace, and dwell in contentment in life.
[00:54] <Filibert Wright> Certainly, My Lady.
[00:54] <Filibert Wright> As the Ambassador of Enclave, such is my duty.
[00:54] <Filibert Wright> And.... should you wish to contact me?
[00:54] * Filibert Wright hands her a "card."
[00:54] * Jedda Rain takes it
[00:55] * Filibert Wright 's card is made from Mica, with runes embedded upon it.
[00:55] <Filibert Wright> I thank you for seeing reason, My Lady. I offer you my utmost oath that I will do everything in my power to ensure that our differences end in peace.
[00:55] * Filibert Wright starts to glow, and his form becomes indistinct.
[00:55] * Jedda Rain nods.
[00:55] * Filibert Wright is now known as Nimble Sky-Dragoon
[00:56] * Nimble Sky-Dragoon enshrouds himself in flame, and blazes off toward the remaining rift like a comet.
[00:56] * Jedda Rain turns and returns to the tower.

[12:11] *** there are pieces of what look like metal sheets and ruined temples.....not far ahead of you seems to be some sort of carved cave but it's had to make out
[12:12] <Nelius Raoul> If I were a s[BLEEP]tty snake, that would be one place to start.
[12:13] * Nelius Raoul approaches what appears to be a cavern.
[12:13] *** something moves in the shadows
[12:14] <Nelius Raoul> And what have we here? A spineless belly-crawling lizard.
[12:15] *** two arms gently wrap around Raoul from behind....
[12:15] <Matsumi Kaze> hey there, raoul....
[12:16] <Nelius Raoul> Nice try Mara, I know it's you.
[12:16] * Matsumi Kaze is in adult her underwear....
[12:16] * Matsumi Kaze starts to gently kiss raoul along the neck...
[12:16] <Nelius Raoul> You can dispense with the idiotic illusions. I'm well aware that Matsumi's already taken.
[12:17] * Nelius Raoul uses a single hand to push the illusionary Matsumi away.
[12:17] * Matsumi Kaze vanishes
[12:19] <Nelius Raoul> Now then, are you going to keep up the frankly boring mind games, or can I skip straight to decimating you?
[12:19] <Matsumi Kaze> I can help you....I was sent to help!
[12:19] * Matsumi Kaze appears next to raoul
[12:20] <Nelius Raoul> Sent to retrieve your own soul... I'd love to see how such would be possible.
[12:21] <Nelius Raoul> Especially given that I can feel her soul in here. The games end today, cold-blooded coward.
[12:22] <Matsumi Kaze> listen!
[12:23] <Matsumi Kaze> I'M THE IMPORTANT ONE HERE
[12:23] <Nelius Raoul> This is no game, not by any stretch of the imagination.
[12:24] <Nelius Raoul> Not by a long shot.
[12:25] <Matsumi Kaze> MINE MINE MINE MI- *fades away*
[12:27] <Nelius Raoul> So then, I hope the pleasantries are dispensed with, for I'm a busy demon, and there's much I'd like to accomplish.
[12:28] * Nelius Raoul treks further into the cave.
[12:28] *** as you get closer to the's carved in the shape of matsumi screaming..the mouth melting into the ground
[12:29] <Nelius Raoul> So now your true colors are revealed. Prepare for an experience that exceeds Hell itself, Mara.
[12:32] * Nelius Raoul enters the cavern.
[12:32] *** the cave feels cold and unwelcoming.....the inside walls have patterns carved into it like snake scales
[12:33] * Nelius Raoul keeps move, undaunted by the surroundings. He's a demon on a mission, and nothing will deter him!
[12:34] <Nelius Raoul> *moving
[12:34] *** there is a large open space.........something shadowy can be seen moving inside
[12:35] <Nelius Raoul> So is this another crappy illusion, or do we finally come face to face, Mara?
[12:36] *** you might want to get closer before you talk
[12:37] * Nelius Raoul gets closer.
[12:39] * Nelius Raoul takes a good look at whatever is moving around.
[12:39] *** in the center of the room is a giant red snake...on the floor amoung it is Matsumi, curled up in a fetal postion
[12:40] * Mara gives a dark chuckle
[12:40] <Nelius Raoul> So we come face to face at last, Mara.
[12:41] <Mara> - you're very brave or very foolish to come here -
[12:42] <Nelius Raoul> Some say I'm a mix of both.
[12:42] * Mara tightens it's grip around Matsumi
[12:43] <Nelius Raoul> Either way, I'm here to end this charade.
[12:44] <Mara> - is that so.... -
[12:44] <Nelius Raoul> Exactly.
[12:45] <Matsumi Kaze> pointless...I'm pointless....I'm pointless
[12:45] <Nelius Raoul> I'll put this as eloquently as I can... utterly destroying you, Mara, will bring me a joy you could never fulfill otherwise.
[12:47] * Mara hisses, showing off it's fangs
[12:48] <Nelius Raoul> Oooh.... scary.
[12:49] * Nelius Raoul is downright unimpressed.
[12:49] * Mara chuckles "so confident"
[12:50] <Nelius Raoul> Determined, never forget determined.
[12:50] <Mara> - but what are you going to do.....*tightens it's grip on matsumi* -
[12:50] <Matsumi Kaze> not needed..not needed by anyone
[12:51] <Nelius Raoul> Myself? Utterly destroy you and bring Matsumi's soul back.
[12:52] <Mara> - I'm afraid it's mine... -
[12:52] <Nelius Raoul> I'm much aware of how you work. Feeding upon others' fears, magnifying their insecurities... tell me, what do you plan to do against someone whom you are powerless against?
[12:52] <Mara> - besides..she doesn't want to go you -
[12:53] <Matsumi Kaze> I'm not needed..not wanted...everyone does better without me
[12:53] <Nelius Raoul> Is that truly her own thoughts, or are you being a peverted little serpent and blowing everything out of proportion?
[12:54] <Mara> - I don't give them these thoughts...I on them -
[12:54] * Nelius Raoul strides forward, completely unintimidated.
[12:55] * Mara coils around Matsumi
[12:55] <Nelius Raoul> And so more of you is revealed. A cowardly little lizard, who can't even stand the sight of himself.
[12:55] <Mara> - and yet I survive -
[12:55] <Nelius Raoul> Who has to make do with skinriding and taking advantage of others.... as a demon, you are pathetic.
[12:57] * Mara LAUGHS
[12:57] <Mara> - Who said I was a demon???? -
[12:57] <Nelius Raoul> At this point, would titles matter? Demon, gesalt, machine....
[12:58] <Nelius Raoul> In the end, it's merely a label, but I'm getting off-track.
[12:59] <Nelius Raoul> All I see in front of me is a pathetic little serpent in need of being squashed underfoot.
[12:59] <Mara> - and you're the one to do it? -
[13:00] <Nelius Raoul> If not myself, then there'd be plenty of others who'd gladly step in.
[13:01] * Mara tightens around matsumi's soul more
[13:01] <Nelius Raoul> Even if you were to find a way to revive, I'd gladly come back for round two... and however many other rounds it'd take to permanently rid the cosmos of you.
[13:02] <Mara> - SHE IS MINE -
[13:02] <Nelius Raoul> Wrong, failure snake. I'm taking her back, and doing the cosmos a service!
[13:04] * Mara gives another nasty hiss
[13:04] <Nelius Raoul> You already tried that once, and it failed.
[13:04] <Nelius Raoul> You really lack the ability to learn, don't you:
[13:06] <Matsumi Kaze> I shouldn't even live....I should just fade away
[13:08] * Nelius Raoul strolls forward. His face is indifferent to the Mara's threats, his aura radiates and reflects confidence and determination.
[13:10] * Matsumi Kaze ..remains where she is
[13:12] <Mara> - I told you..she doesn't want to go -
[13:12] * Nelius Raoul sneezes, loudly.
[13:12] <Nelius Raoul> Apologies, allergic reaction to bulls[BLEEP]t.
[13:14] <Nelius Raoul> Now then, you want to do this the easy way, or my way?
[13:14] <Mara> - try your best -
[13:15] <Nelius Raoul> I'll do much more than try.
[13:17] <Matsumi Kaze> I don't deserve anything...
[13:18] * Nelius Raoul keeps moving forward, almost grinning at the serpent.
[13:19] * Mara just lets raoul move forward
[13:20] <Nelius Raoul> I wonder, how receptive are you to pain, physical or otherwise?
[13:20] <Mara> - pain is my pleasure -
[13:24] * Mara holds tightly onto Matsumi
[13:24] <Nelius Raoul> And pleasure is your pain.
[13:26] <Mara> - she remains with me -
[13:26] <Nelius Raoul> More specifically, my personal pleasure shall be your pain.
[13:29] <Matsumi Kaze> what's the point of doing anything anyrmoe
[13:29] <Nelius Raoul> Your mind games have failed, Mara. You are but a joke.
[13:30] <Nelius Raoul> Very well.
[13:31] * Nelius Raoul moves with a frightening speed, and is already staring Mara down. The snake's reflection can be seen in his eye.
[13:32] * Mara chuckles.....
[13:32] <Mara> - that doesn't work here -
[13:33] <Nelius Raoul> Perhaps not, but how about this--
[13:33] * Nelius Raoul moves frightening fast to snatch Matsumi from its coils.
[13:34] * Matsumi Kaze ....stays put....
[13:34] <Mara> - I told can't take her if she doesn't want to go -
[13:35] <Nelius Raoul> And I already told you-- I'm undeniably stubborn.
[13:36] <Matsumi Kaze> nobody cares....nobody cares...
[13:38] <Nelius Raoul> And that is where you are wrong, Matsumi. Freya cares, Blackstar cares-- even I care.
[13:39] <Matsumi Kaze> what good am I...I can't do anything for anyone...I can't contribute I can't help
[13:39] <Nelius Raoul> Wrong again. You provided Yumiko and Kanri with someone they could turn to when things went south.
[13:42] *** event on pause
[14:59] * Matsumi Kaze stays curled up..
[15:01] <Nelius Raoul> That's two contributions to your claimed zero.
[15:02] <Matsumi Kaze> I'm replacable..I'm just replacable
[15:02] <Nelius Raoul> You think yourself useless, but that's a lie-- there's nobody else who could be you.
[15:04] <Matsumi Kaze> you're wrong....everyone else can do a better job then me
[15:05] <Nelius Raoul> Everyone has a particular talent-- mine being pure tenacity.
[15:06] <Nelius Raoul> There's two things you can do with this self-doubt... you can either cast it aside, or weaponize it.
[15:11] <Nelius Raoul> You say you're looking for a purpose-- ultimately, that power lies with you alone.
[15:11] * Matsumi Kaze just starts the mara tightens it's coils
[15:13] <Nelius Raoul> It's a harsh thing to hear, I'm well aware... but you are FAR from the only person who's wondered about their existence, and what life they should lead.
[15:14] * Matsumi Kaze 's throat is now being covered by the mara's coils
[15:16] <Nelius Raoul> If you're honestly looking to find what you should do-- if you truly wish to understand what direction your life should go--
[15:17] <Nelius Raoul> Then throw away this feeling of worthlessness, discard everything holding you back.
[15:17] <Nelius Raoul> You are Matsumi Kaze-- irreplaceable, a friend to many.
[15:18] * Matsumi Kaze just curls up tighter, sobbing..."it doesn't matter what I do..nothing changes..."
[15:18] <Nelius Raoul> There are many awaiting your safe return-- Magistra, Kanri, Freya, Yumiko-- are you just going to let them down, when they've been in need of you the most?
[15:20] <Matsumi Kaze> they don't need me....they never did
[15:20] <Nelius Raoul> That is a load of crap and you know it.
[15:21] <Mara> - she is so delciously weak willed -
[15:22] <Nelius Raoul> Then let my indomitable spirit ignite hers, and turn this cavern white hot!
[15:23] * Nelius Raoul puts a hand to Matsumi's head, and at once he wills his spirit to ignite hers.
[15:24] * Matsumi Kaze remains where she is
[15:25] <Nelius Raoul> Matsumi, I know for a DAMN GOOD FACT you're a hell of a lot stronger than this. Don't let this pathetically weak serpent dictate what you can and cannot do.
[15:29] <Mara> my power is through her.........and do you think you can easily erase such deep pain
[15:29] <Mara> - ^ -
[15:30] <Nelius Raoul> Nothing is ever easy... and that is what makes it all the more worth it to accomplish.
[15:30] <Nelius Raoul> You, a downright worthless bottom-feeder, would never be able to understand it.
[15:34] <Mara> - why thank you -
[15:35] <Nelius Raoul> Your reverse psychology has no sway over me. One way or another, Matsumi is coming back with me, and there is absolutely nothing you can say or do to convince me otherwise.
[15:40] <Mara> - it will take more then tear her away from me -
[15:41] <Nelius Raoul> Maybe, but I've always been one to defy the odds.
[15:46] <Mara> - the odds are in my favor -
[15:48] <Nelius Raoul> Even so, I'll keep persisting.
[15:48] <Nelius Raoul> If there's one thing I've learned, it's to never give up, even if the entire cosmos were to turn on you.
[15:52] *** event paused
[19:25] * Mara is surrounding Matsumi
[19:26] * Nelius Raoul is floating above Matsumi, one hand on her head. He's looking at the serpent with a smile.
[19:27] <Mara> - she's mine..she's already given herself to me -
[19:27] <Nelius Raoul> Well then, hate to break you up so soon-- who am I kidding, I'm like a kid in a candy store right now!
[19:30] * Nelius Raoul is intensifying in power...
[19:30] * Mara bares it's fangs at raoul as it attempts to absorb matsumi into itself
[19:31] * Nelius Raoul wedges his wings inbetween Matsumi and Mara.
[19:32] <Mara> - you think you can break me? -
[19:32] <Nelius Raoul> I don't think-- I know.
[19:33] * Nelius Raoul 's aura is starting to lighten the cave some.

[19:34] <@spiritflame> konbanwa solarchos
[19:35] * Solarchos suddenly appears next to Nelius, Warp-blade unsheathed.
[19:35] <Solarchos> I understand someone's been trying to do something to my friend's soul.
[19:36] <Nelius Raoul> Hey Solar.
[19:37] * Mara is growing in size
[19:37] * Nelius Raoul gets a new idea.
[19:37] * Solarchos looks at Mara.
[19:37] *** Mara is your average everyday Mara

[19:38] * Mara is a giant red's currently absorbing matsumi into itself
[19:38] <Solarchos> Now just what the feth are you doing to Matsumi there? Let her go right now or die.
[19:39] <Mara> - I CAN NEVER DIE -
[19:39] * Nelius Raoul works to draw Matsumi back out and into himself.
[19:39] <Solarchos> I am *not* about let you kill her.
[19:40] <Solarchos> Nelius, what can I do to help here?
[19:40] <Nelius Raoul> So what, you plan on ressurecting? Go ahead, we'll simply blow you to bits over and over, again and again, for as long as it'll take.
[19:41] <Mara> - KILL HER..SHE WILL BECOME ME -
[19:41] <Solarchos> Matsumi! What can we do to help you?
[19:41] <Matsumi Kaze> no point...
[19:41] <Nelius Raoul> This oversized belt thinks he's actually a threat...
[19:42] * A strange portal opens next to Solarchos.

[19:43] * Nelius Raoul is slowly but steadily working to draw Matsumi's soul into himself.
[19:43] <Solarchos> Children?! How...?!
[19:43] * Solarchos sees the portal. "Yukari!" ><;;
[19:43] *** the dark place of the inside is a black void..utterly black

[19:44] <Solarchos> YUKARI, NO! The Kits shouldn't be here for this!
[19:45] * The Kits all rush towards Aunty Matsy, shrieking and howling at her to get her attention, obviously greatly concerned.
[19:46] * Mara sends out a howl full of primal fear and evil at the kits
[19:46] * Solarchos charges at Mara and attempts to stab the creature in the hopes of allowing the Warp-blade to drain its mana.
[19:46] * Chibi-Sylvester hides behind his older sister. T__T
[19:47] * Chibi-Catri hides behind Daddy's leg. T___T
[19:47] * Prince Obsidian appears in the Dark places of the Inside.
[19:47] * Chibi-Alex just...stares right back at Mara and SHRIEKS right back at it!
[19:47] <Prince Obsidian> MARA!!!
[19:47] <Nelius Raoul> Oh yes, real impressive, scaring two kids, you're real intimidating...
[19:47] * Chibi-AnTil takes out his own small sword and stands beside Daddy.
[19:47] * Nelius Raoul is obviously unimpressed by Mara.
[19:48] <Chibi-AnTil> Aunty Matsy!! Are you okay?!
[19:48] <Mara> - ah....a tiny creature...come here -
[19:48] <Chibi-Alex> We're all here to save you!
[19:49] <Nelius Raoul> Open your eyes and take a damn good look Matsumi!
[19:49] * Prince Obsidian runs towards the humongous serpent.
[19:50] <Solarchos> KITS! NOW!!
[19:50] * Nelius Raoul uses the hand on his head to turn Matsumi's gaze towards Solarchos and everyone who's arrived.
[19:50] * Solarchos continues to hack and slash at Mara, attempting to loosen her grip on Matrsumi, or at least distract her.
[19:50] * Matsumi Kaze is half way absorbed into the mara
[19:50] * Mara is unaffected by the blade...
[19:51] * Mara LAUGHS
[19:51] <Mara> - THIS IS MY DOMAIN.... -
[19:51] <Chibi-Alex> Aunty Matsy! Come back to us!
[19:51] * Nelius Raoul increases his own pull on Matsumi's soul.
[19:51] * Nelius Raoul then gets an idea.
[19:51] <Nelius Raoul> How about Order, then?
[19:51] * Chibi-Catri and Chibi-Sylvester manage to overcome their fear and step up towards Mara.
[19:52] <Chibi-AnTil> Let Aunty Matsy go, you big ugly scaly-thing!
[19:53] * Nelius Raoul decides it's time to quit holding back so much.
[19:53] <Solarchos> Matsumi! Snap out of it and fight!
[19:53] <Prince Obsidian> Very well then...
[19:54] <Prince Obsidian> Time for plan # 2.
[19:54] * Solarchos continues to fight Mara, this time just switching to his pistol and shooting her several times with Silverite anti-demon rounds.
[19:54] * Nelius Raoul reaches his free hand back, and undoes his eyepatch. A frighteningly old power begins to emerge....
[19:54] <Matsumi Kaze> there's no point...there's not point....I'm not wanted...I'm not needed...
[19:55] * Prince Obsidian opens a portal behind him and pulls a full size mirror.
[19:55] <Nelius Raoul> If you weren't wanted, then why are all these people here, fighting tooth and nail for your life?
[19:56] <Nelius Raoul> So what if the past few days have been weird, it hasn't stopped anyone else from doing their damnest.
[19:57] * Chibi-Alex charges towards Aunty Matsy and tries to grab one of her arms.
[19:57] <Matsumi Kaze> ...I've never been strong....anyone could replace me....
[19:57] <Nelius Raoul> We know you're stronger than this, Matsumi.
[19:57] * Mara whips it's tail at Alex
[19:57] * Prince Obsidian shielding himself with the mirror, flies right up to the Mara and sticks it right into its face.
[19:57] * The rest of the Kits rush up to Matsumi and going Alexianna in grabbing her limbs and pulling.
[19:57] <Prince Obsidian> HAVE A GOOD LOOK AT YOURSELF!
[19:57] * Chibi-Alex attempts to dodge!
[19:57] <spiritflame> Chibi-Alex rolls 1d20 [ 3 ]
[19:58] * Nelius Raoul is starting to get some leverage.
[19:58] * Chibi-Alex is knocked down! >__<
[19:58] <Solarchos> Alexianna!
[19:59] * Solarchos just PUNCHES Mara in the face for that! Forget chaos or order, he just unloads on her with pure, unadulterated physical force.
[19:59] * Mara grows bigger....and turns away from the mirror
[19:59] * Nelius Raoul sends a wing up to impale Mara through the chin.
[20:01] * The Kits continue to shout at Aunty Matsy, trying to tug and pull her away from the monster and make her wake up.
[20:01] * Mara is..unaffected by physical attacks
[20:02] * Prince Obsidian opens up five more portals, mirrors fly out of them and levitate around the Mara's head in a circle.
[20:02] <Nelius Raoul>, no physical huh? Well then~
[20:02] * Nelius Raoul tosses a spear of ice into Mara's chin.
[20:03] <Mara> - IT WON'T WORK.......SHE IS GIVING INTO ME -
[20:03] <Nelius Raoul> Hey Solar, got any magic?
[20:04] <Prince Obsidian> I do.
[20:04] *** Lt. David O`Cain [] has joined #suburbansenshi3
[20:04] <@spiritflame> konbanwa lt. david o`cain
[20:05] * Solarchos whips out an Accatran-pattern heavy laser pistol and burst-fires it at Mara's face. The las-rounds aren't normal energy beams: they're saturated with necromantic-aspected magic.
[20:05] <Nelius Raoul> Well then, by all means, this overgrown belt needs cutting down to size.
[20:05] * Chibi-Alex stabs Mara with her sword!
[20:05] <Chibi-Sylvester> Aunty Matsy!! T__T
[20:05] <Chibi-AnTil> Aunty Matsy! Don't listen to that thing!
[20:05] * Lt. David O`Cain suddenly leaps through a portal, armed with a large scythe, and aims to slash Mara with it
[20:06] <Nelius Raoul> You say there's nothing worth living for.... that's a false statement. Look around you!
[20:06] * Chibi-Catri leans in close to Aunty Matsy...and begins giving her tail-pats. To her face. "Wakey-wakey!"
[20:06] * Mara ROARS and hisses angerly.....
[20:07] <Nelius Raoul> That is also a false statement.
[20:07] <Nelius Raoul> Were we not to care, we wouldn't even be here!
[20:07] * DreamSeer jumps out after David!
[20:07] * Nelius Raoul gives a mighty pull on Matsumi!
[20:07] <Solarchos> No, that's only halfway true. We do want to make her feel better because we DO genuinely care!
[20:07] <DreamSeer> I want to have Matsumi bacck...I want her to wake up...she's an inspiration to me
[20:07] <Mara> - you just want to make her feel better........ -
[20:07] <DreamSeer> She's my friend
[20:08] * DreamSeer tries to pull Matsumi!
[20:08] <Mara> - you don't even truely belive in her -
[20:08] <Solarchos> She's one of us. She's fought alongside us numerous times when we needed help.
[20:08] <DreamSeer> I do!
[20:08] <Mara> - the moment this is'll go back to ignoring understand that matsumi? -
[20:08] <Solarchos> If we didn't believe in her, none of us would actually be here.
[20:08] <Nelius Raoul> Wow, is bulls[BLEEP]t and idiocy all you can muster?
[20:08] * Lt. David O`Cain lands on his feet, dressed in a hooded robe and tabard, "Wrong!"
[20:08] <Chibi-Alex> SHUT UP!!!
[20:08] * Chibi-Alex points her sword at Mara's face.
[20:08] <Prince Obsidian> I care because she has the kind of fiery spirit, I like!
[20:08] <DreamSeer> I've never ignored Matsumi!
[20:09] <Chibi-Alex> Aunty Matsy is always going to be Aunty Matsy!
[20:09] * DreamSeer throws her shoe at Mara
[20:09] * Nelius Raoul seems to be undergoing a physical change as he pulls at Matsumi.
[20:09] <Lt. David O`Cain> Matsumi IS wanted. Wanted by her friends! She has family that cares about her as well!
[20:09] <Chibi-AnTil> She's played with us so many times and given us hugs and told us good things.
[20:09] <Chibi-Sylvester> We love Aunty Matsy!
[20:10] <Nelius Raoul> You think that because you've exaggerated one bad thought that you know the real Matsumi? You are nothing but a false, unwanted being!
[20:10] <Chibi-Catri> We're not going to let some ugly, stupid monster take her away and say bad things about her!
[20:10] <Nelius Raoul> Today your bullcrap comes to an end!
[20:11] <Prince Obsidian> You ARE a concept, nothing more!
[20:11] * Lt. David O`Cain points the scythe at Mara, "Release Matsumi now, or I will RIP your soul from your body, and send it down to the deepest, darkest pits of HELL!"
[20:11] <Nelius Raoul> I'd love to see Mara as a completely powerless Prinny under Etna's heel.
[20:12] * Solarchos takes out what appears to be a crytaline prism that's glowing with an inner light.
[20:13] <Nelius Raoul> Got an ace in the hole, Solar?
[20:13] <Solarchos> Maybe, maybe not...a Psy-grenade.
[20:14] <DreamSeer> Matsumi is a performer, she's a friend, she's human. She gets scared and worried....but that's a part of being alive
[20:14] * Solarchos smacks the prism against the floor, causing it to crack, then tosses it up into the air.
[20:15] * Nelius Raoul gets more leverage on Matsumi.
[20:16] * Matsumi Kaze is crying
[20:16] <Prince Obsidian> the thing of it is, Mara, that compared to your eldritch siblings, Fenric, The Great Intelligence, The Black Guardian. You will always be the great evil that accomplish NOTHING OF IMPORTANCE!
[20:17] <Mara> - I am not related to them -
[20:17] * The Psy-grenade "detonates" with a powerful psychic blast, sending out a massive telepathic wave designed to bolster the morale of everyone within its radius - fear is diminished and despair is turned around.
[20:17] <Nelius Raoul> Wow, disowned. What a pitiable bellycrawler.
[20:17] * Mara is hit and seems to deminish slightly...then looks at matsumi....
[20:17] <Mara> (( the mara isn't related to those things actually ))
[20:18] <Mara> - the moment you'll be forgotten again... -
[20:18] <Solarchos> (( Who said it was meant to affect Mara exclusively? ))
[20:19] <Solarchos> (( It was meant to jog Matsumi's emotions since she's being beaten down by despair. ))
[20:19] <Lt. David O`Cain> Matsumi will NEVER be forgotten! SHE NEVER WILL BE!
[20:20] <Nelius Raoul> She already has a future ahead of her-- and you're nowhere in it!
[20:20] <Mara> - all they care about is getting you that they can simply go back to what they were doing before -
[20:20] <DreamSeer> That's not true@
[20:21] <DreamSeer> Please, Matsumi! You have a husband that loves you!"
[20:21] <Nelius Raoul> No wonder your tongue is forked-- you can only speak in lies.
[20:21] * The Kits all start hugging and tail-patting Aunty Matsy, over and over and over again as they all trill for her.
[20:21] <Prince Obsidian> She is the only Sailor Senshi I am willing to respect.
[20:21] <Nelius Raoul> She has far more than what you imply.
[20:21] * Matsumi Kaze seems to start to give up...and is rapidly being absorbed
[20:21] <Lt. David O`Cain> Hey, lizard-breath! Why don't you shut up? YOU ARE NOTHING TO MATSUMI!
[20:22] * Nelius Raoul begins pulling again.
[20:22] * Nelius Raoul 's aura flares wildly as he pulls on Matsumi.
[20:23] <Solarchos> Then why don't you let Matsumi speak for herself?!
[20:23] <Nelius Raoul> You want courage and a reason to go on-- then look upon this!
[20:23] * Matsumi Kaze is fully absorbed
[20:23] <Mara> - yes....YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS -
[20:23] <Solarchos> :O
[20:23] * Nelius Raoul is being dragged in alongside Matsumi.
[20:24] * The Kits all wail and shriek as Aunty Matsy disappears. They refuse to let go though.
[20:24] <Nelius Raoul> So this is how you want to play. Very well then.
[20:24] <Lt. David O`Cain> Oh for Serenity's sake! >_<
[20:24] * Mara starts to grow massivly..eyes flashing green....and starting to burst out of the cavern
[20:24] <Nelius Raoul> I've fought foes whose power far exceeds yours, s[BLEEP]tty snake. Hell will feel as a paradise once I am done!
[20:25] * Nelius Raoul 's power begins to escalate as he cuts loose!
[20:25] <Solarchos> MATSUMI! DON'T YOU DARE MAKE MY CHILDREN CRY LIKE THIS! You were one of the first people I got to know when I came here. You were one of the first people to welcome me back after the Exile. You were one of the first people who played with the Kits and made them so happy! DON'T YOU DARE GIVE UP LIKE THIS!
[20:26] <Nelius Raoul> Matsumi, you were among one of Yumiko's first friends. Kanri considers you an honorary aunt. I even consider you to be someone I can rely upon.
[20:26] <Prince Obsidian> Time to do something drastic...
[20:27] * Nelius Raoul is dragged partway into Mara, but he refuses to be absorbed as he keeps his grip on Matsumi.
[20:28] <Chibi-Alex> AUNTY MATSY!!!!
[20:28] <Chibi-Alex> >:(
[20:28] * Prince Obsidian opens a portal above the Mara's head that grows wider and wider and wider.
[20:28] * Chibi-Alex glares at Mara with an expression of absolute hatred and fury, her tails poofed and her ears flat against her head.
[20:29] * DreamSeer grabs onto Nelius and tries to help him pull
[20:29] <Prince Obsidian> I going to drop something heavy on it's head.....
[20:29] <Mara> - I...WILL...TRANSCEND -
[20:29] * Chibi-Alex seems to have a gentle breeze revolving around her now. The high mana-field that's always around her is fluctuating significantly.
[20:29] * Mara is now known as Q-Mara
[20:30] <Solarchos> Oh dammit!
[20:30] <Lt. David O`Cain> YOU WILL FAIL!
[20:30] <Nelius Raoul> Go ahead and try-- we'll beat you down, no matter what form you take!
[20:30] * Solarchos grabs AnTil, Catriona, and Sylvester and pulls them to safety!
[20:30] <Prince Obsidian> Transcend THIS!
[20:31] * Lt. David O`Cain tightly grips the scythe, causing the blade to have a blue hue
[20:31] <Nelius Raoul> First it was that idiotic mecha, and now this forgettable lizard.
[20:31] * A mountain of black Crystal falls on the Mara's head.
[20:31] * Chibi-Alex starts to levitate a few inches off of the ground and extends her arms out towards Mara.
[20:31] <Q-Mara> - YOU KILL ME AND YOU KILL HER -
[20:32] <DreamSeer> FIGHT THIS
[20:32] <DreamSeer> FOR THEM
[20:32] <DreamSeer> SO THEY'LL BE BORN
[20:32] <Nelius Raoul> Whatever cosmic force that likes to toy with Matsumi, let it be known-- once this weakling is separated from Matsumi, I'm coming for you!
[20:33] * Nelius Raoul pulls on Matsumi's soul even harder! He absolutely refuses to stop!!
[20:33] * Chibi-Alex screams in pain and fear as she channels ALL of the mana inside her into one huge, searing beam of positively-aligned energy right at Mara. "AUNTY MATSY COME BACK!!!!!!!!!!'
[20:34] <Solarchos> :O
[20:35] * Q-Mara HOWLS and it shifts, showing matsumi badly wounded by the mana
[20:35] <Nelius Raoul> You truly are a coward.
[20:36] * Nelius Raoul gives a mighty pull on Matsumi's soul, forcibly ripping her through Mara's being.
[20:36] <Q-Mara> - (in mara and matsumi's voice) WE WILL CONSUME EVERYTHING IN FEAR -
[20:36] <Lt. David O`Cain> YOU WILL DO NO SUCH THING!
[20:37] * Solarchos continues to shoot Mara with magically-enhanced las-rounds.
[20:37] <DreamSeer> NO!
[20:37] * Lt. David O`Cain throws the scythe at Mara with inhuman strength backing it, causing it to spin like a circular saw in an attempt to separate Matsumi from her
[20:38] <Nelius Raoul> You can quit your lies! They have no power or meaning here!
[20:39] <Solarchos> Let her say that to us herself then!
[20:40] <Solarchos> Stop speaking for her and let her say it to our faces!
[20:40] <Nelius Raoul> Matsumi does not need an interpreter-- if she's something to tell us, she can say it for herself!
[20:40] <Nelius Raoul> Such delusion. No wonder you're a failure.
[20:41] * Chibi-Alex is unconscous now.
[20:41] <Chibi-AnTil> You're not Aunty Matsy!
[20:41] <Chibi-Catri> Aunty Matsy is nice and makes us laugh!
[20:42] <Chibi-Sylvester> Aunty Matsy is always happy and loves to play with us because we make her laugh too!
[20:42] * Nelius Raoul is slowly but steadily exiting Mara's skin, with Matsumi in tow.
[20:42] <Solarchos> LIAR!
[20:42] * Matsumi Kaze is activitly fighting against raoul's attempts
[20:43] <Nelius Raoul> We already told you, failure named Mara, your lies hold no sway over any of us!
[20:43] <Solarchos> Matsumi would NEVER say something like that. You're just trying to dominate and control her.
[20:43] <Lt. David O`Cain> We don't believe you, snake!
[20:43] * Nelius Raoul is pulling even harder.
[20:43] * Solarchos tries to help Nelius.
[20:44] * Lt. David O`Cain retrieves the scythe
[20:44] * Matsumi Kaze has now grown MASSIVLY..and is smashing against the walls of space
[20:45] <Nelius Raoul> You can go ahead hate me all you like, I AM getting you out of here, true Matsumi!
[20:45] <Solarchos> Matsumi! STOP THIS! FIGHT BACK AGAINST THIS THING! You're the only one who can!
[20:45] * The Kits all CHARGE at the monster, screaming at it angrily for the lies it's telling to Aunty Matsy and everyone else.
[20:46] * Q-Mara is trying to break out of this place....
[20:47] <Nelius Raoul> You say you want a purpose, Matsumi-- here's one! Shed this ugly snakeskin belt, and show everyone that you still matter!!
[20:47] * Chibi-Alex is lying on the floor, unconscious. She looks like she's in the grip of a bad dream.
[20:48] <Q-Mara> - AND I WILL BEGIN..WITH THIS ONE -
[20:48] <Chibi-Alex> Aunty Matsy...tell us a story...
[20:48] * Nelius Raoul pulls with frightening power!
[20:48] * Q-Mara looks down at Alex....
[20:48] <DreamSeer> DREAMS
[20:48] <DreamSeer> THAT'S IT
[20:48] * DreamSeer grins and pushes herself into Q-Mara's "dreams"
[20:48] * Nelius Raoul overhears DreamSeer's realization.
[20:48] * DreamSeer tries to see if she can find Matsumi through the subconscious
[20:48] * Q-Mara has no dreams
[20:49] * Q-Mara sends out a primal howl out from it's home
[20:49] * DreamSeer tries to get into Matsumi's subconscious
[20:49] <Chibi-Alex> Aunty Matsy please don't go away...
[20:50] <Nelius Raoul> Solarchos! Get Alex to wake up!
[20:50] * Solarchos rushes over to Alexianna and picks her up. "Wake up, little Kit. Wake up."
[20:51] * Q-Mara starts to lower itself..opening it's jaw wide to devour alex
[20:51] <DreamSeer> That's not working....
[20:51] <DreamSeer> Solarchos
[20:51] <Chibi-Alex> Tired, Daddy...couldn't stop the monster...
[20:51] <DreamSeer> Let me delve into Alex's dream
[20:51] <DreamSeer> Maybe I can wake her up?
[20:51] * Solarchos aims the Sniper-Bolter into Q-Mara's face.
[20:51] * Nelius Raoul is pulling at Matsumi with even greater power.
[20:52] * Chibi-Alex glares into -Q-Mara's eyes.
[20:52] * All of the Kits level their weapons at Q-Mara, moving to defend Alex and Daddy.
[20:53] * Lt. David O`Cain stands behind the kits, keeping the scythe in his hands
[20:53] <Nelius Raoul> You think yourself important, Mara-- but you're little than an impotent bottom-feeding sewer snake.
[20:54] * Solarchos opens fire with anti-demon rounds, emptying the entire magazine into Mara without fear or hesitation.
[20:55] <Nelius Raoul> We will win, and you will lose!
[20:55] * Q-Mara screams in matsumi and the mara's voice
[20:55] * Solarchos fires the last round at Mara's eye.
[20:55] <Prince Obsidian> Let's try this again...
[20:55] * Q-Mara SCREAMS in Matsumi's voice
[20:55] <Solarchos> MATSUMI! Don't you DARE let this thing hurt the Kits!!!
[20:56] <Solarchos> Don't!
[20:56] <Solarchos> You!
[20:56] <Solarchos> DARE!!!
[20:56] *** Yukari Yakumo [IllusoryBorderHag@EnclaveFedCom.Net (PiratedServer] has joined #suburbansenshi3
[20:56] <@spiritflame> konbanwa yukari yakumo
[20:57] * Prince Obsidian summons a wall of mirrors in front of the Mara.
[20:57] <Nelius Raoul> Matsumi, take one good long look! You've got the power to shed the ugly being, and erase it from existence.
[20:58] <Lt. David O`Cain> WAKE THE F[BLEEP]K UP, MATSUMI!
[20:58] * Solarchos just starts hammering and smashing the Q-Mara repeatedly with the now-empty Sniper-Bolter, instantly attaching a combat blade to it and demonstrating a highly aggressive and absolutely beautiful bayonet style that would make Imperial Commissars weep.
[20:59] * Yukari Yakumo grins at the sight of her Killer Angel on the offensive, thrilled by what she's seeing.
[21:00] <Nelius Raoul> We don't need to kill you, only separate one from the other!
[21:01] <Nelius Raoul> Your so-called power over her is a mere fakery!
[21:01] * Lt. David O`Cain suddenly has the scythe blade explode in a blue flame
[21:01] <Q-Mara> - I AM WHAT SHE MAKES ME -
[21:02] *** DreamSeer [] has quit IRC (I'm not needed anyways)
[21:02] <Nelius Raoul> Then she can easily make you absolutely nothing!
[21:02] <Solarchos> And what you are is a pathetic DEZGRA!!
[21:02] <Solarchos> If you don't want to die, LET MATSUMI GO!
[21:03] <Nelius Raoul> There's many waiting for you to come back safe, Matsumi! Don't even entertain any thoughts of letting them down!
[21:03] <Chibi-Alex> Aunty Matsy!
[21:04] * Chibi-Alex looks up at teh Q-Mara.
[21:04] <Prince Obsidian> Excuse me for a second.... I have an idea.
[21:04] <Lt. David O`Cain> AND SO HELP ME, YOU WILL BURY THAT DAMN LIAR! (points the scythe at Mara)
[21:04] <Nelius Raoul> We're all ears.
[21:05] * Chibi-Alex waves to the Q-Mara. "Aunty Matsy! Aunty Matsy!"
[21:05] <Prince Obsidian> Need to get someone first.
[21:05] * Prince Obsidian opens a portal back to the hotel.
[21:05] * Nelius Raoul is still getting Matsumi out of Mara's grasp.
[21:05] <Chibi-Alex> We love you, Aunty Matsy. Please don't go, and please don't be mad.
[21:05] <Prince Obsidian> Be back shortly.
[21:06] * Prince Obsidian jumps through it.
[21:07] <Nelius Raoul> We'll hold you to it!
[21:09] * Nelius Raoul continues pulling Matsumi out of Mara. It's slow going, but he's not stopping any time soon.
[21:12] * Mirrors start coming through Yukari's portal.
[21:12] <Nelius Raoul> Does it matter to you, serpent who can only speak in lies and perverted words?
[21:13] * Chibi-Catri picks up one of the mirrors and looks at it.
[21:13] * Chibi-Catri accidentally aims the mirror at Q-Mara.
[21:14] * Q-Mara SLAMS it's tail at catri
[21:14] <Chibi-Catri> :O
[21:14] <Nelius Raoul> (The mirrors...)
[21:15] * Lt. David O`Cain slams the scythe's handle onto the ground and causes Mara to be surrounded by mirrors via telekinesis
[21:15] <Q-Mara> - I AM TOO STRONG FOR THAT -
[21:16] * Nelius Raoul summons up even more power, and yanks on Matsumi.
[21:16] * Q-Mara is at least 50 feet'll need bigger mirrors
[21:16] <Nelius Raoul> Then why do you still avert them from yourself?
[21:16] * The Kits get more mirrors and shine them at Q-Mara.
[21:16] <Nelius Raoul> Face it, my future snakeskin boots-- your weaknesses are still viable.
[21:17] * Q-Mara thrashes!!!!
[21:17] * Yukari Yakumo opens DOZENS of portals around Q-Mara.
[21:17] * Lt. David O`Cain brings the mirrors together and shines them at Mara
[21:18] <Lt. David O`Cain> Mirror, mirror, on the wall. SHOW US WHO THE BIGGEST LIAR OF THEM ALL!
[21:18] * Yukari Yakumo reaches into a portal beside her, then her hands extend out of all of the portals she's made, each one holding a different mirror so that DOZENS of mirrors are being aimed at Q-Mara!
[21:18] * Solarchos sees what's going on.
[21:18] <Solarchos> Matsumi...
[21:19] * Q-Mara roars angerly
[21:19] * Lt. David O`Cain keeps the mirrors focused on Mara
[21:19] <Nelius Raoul> You see, one with the forked tongue-- your lies are nothing before us!
[21:19] * Solarchos takes a step towards Q-Mara, detaches his combat knife, and shows it to the creature. The combat knife has been polished to a *mirror* finish.
[21:19] * Nelius Raoul pulls Matsumi even further through Mara.
[21:20] * The Kits all trill at Matsumi, singing her favorite song to her.
[21:22] <Chibi-Alex> Aunty Matsy! Come home with us! We can play all the time any time you want!
[21:23] <Chibi-AnTil> We can help you at the theater!
[21:23] <Chibi-Catri> And Natalia wants to get to know you, too!
[21:23] <Chibi-Sylvester> We love you, Aunty Matsy! Even if you're a big silly!
[21:25] <Lt. David O`Cain> What's the matter, lizard-breath? Afraid of your own looks? (keeps the mirrors facing Mara)
[21:25] <Nelius Raoul> Matsumi, you are FAR from worthless or replaceable!
[21:28] <Lt. David O`Cain> Come on, Matsumi! FIGHT THIS DAMN THIS! YOU CAN DO IT!
[21:29] * Prince Obsidian reappears through the portal.
[21:29] <Solarchos> After we rescue her we'll bring her home and continue to make her a part of our lives.
[21:30] * Lt. David O`Cain keeps the mirrors facing Mara
[21:30] * Q-Mara struggles "YOU WILL.....ABANDON HER....ALL OVER AGAIN"
[21:31] <Solarchos> When have we ever abandoned her in the first place?
[21:31] <Nelius Raoul> The only thing being abandoned is a worthless lying serpent who doesn't even deserve a name!
[21:31] <Prince Obsidian> Okay, that didn't work so....
[21:31] <Lt. David O`Cain> No we won't! She will be part of our lives as a friend!
[21:32] <Q-Mara> - VERY WELL.....SHE'LL SEE....YOU'LL ALL FORGET...HER....AGAIN! -
[21:32] * Prince Obsidian looks at all the mirrors laying around.
[21:32] <Nelius Raoul> We'll gladly forget the one called Mara. Matsumi will never be left behind!
[21:33] <Lt. David O`Cain> We will never forget her! We shall stand by her! For the rest of her days!
[21:33] * Nelius Raoul pulls with strength unbidden, ripping Matsumi through Mara's body!
[21:33] * Q-Mara grins "and I will be waiting....the moment that you turn away from her...and ignore her.....I'"
[21:33] * Q-Mara roars and EXPLODES into nothing....leaving behind a single green light
[21:34] * Prince Obsidian flies over and grabs the light.
[21:34] <Nelius Raoul> Come back anytime, Mara-- we'll put you down once again!!
[21:34] * Chibi-AnTil tries to catch the light.
[21:35] * Nelius Raoul is left holding nothing, as Matsumi's soul is seen as a green light now.
[21:35] * Nelius Raoul flies over to grab Matsumi's soul.
[21:36] * The Kits all try to catch the green light, too!
[21:37] * Lt. David O`Cain puts away the scythe, and goes for the green light
[21:37] * Prince Obsidian pulls out a bottle to put the light he's caught in it.
[21:37] * Nelius Raoul extends a wing to push the bottle away!
[21:38] <Prince Obsidian> I wish to be the one to give Mrs. Kaze back her soul.
[21:39] <Nelius Raoul> ....then know we'll be going with you.
[21:39] * Nelius Raoul retracts the wing, but keeps his eye on Obsidian.
[21:39] <Prince Obsidian> Very well.
[21:40] *** Q-Mara has left #suburbansenshi3
[21:40] * Solarchos steps up and holds his hand out to the green light.
[21:40] <Q-Mara> (( guys just end the event however the hell you want ))

[21:50] <Solarchos> Yup, it is, Alexianna. Excellent work catching it.
[21:50] * Prince Obsidian simply shrugs his shoulders in resignation.
[21:50] <Lt. David O`Cain> Come on. Let's wake Matsumi up.

[18:29] *** There are people already mingling inside the showroom. One can see prettily dressed waitresses carrying trays full of dainty appetizers, people dressed in the latest fanciful fashions, and different groups of couples and friends mingling about.
[18:37] *** George Glass is standing by themselves in one of the corners in the room by an unoccupied futon sofa. Their messy brown hair is slicked back and they're wearing a very stylish black outfit with tins of green and gold and red lining their jacket, shirt, and jeans.
[18:38] * George Glass fidgets nervously. They take a glass from a passing waitress, who gives George a wink as she walks by, which causes them to blush, and they shake their head.
[18:38] <George Glass> (Get into your headspace, George. Pick one. Be that one. Let it flow and be relaxed.)
[18:39] * George Glass takes a deep breath, chugs down the drink, and wipes the back of his mouth with his hand.
[18:39] <George Glass> (Alright. You got this. Put on that charm and professional air.)
[18:40] * George Glass visibly relaxes, his demeanor resting in a more masculine position. He hands the empty glass back to the same waitress and smiles, giving her a wink as well.
[18:42] * George Glass hears a beautiful voice call his name.
[18:42] * George Glass blushes faintly at the two women that have walked up to them. (I always forget how gorgeous they are.)
[18:42] <Aya Mitsuske> Georgie! It's so good to see you again! You didn't think we'd miss out on your big day, did you?
[18:43] * Aya Mitsuske greets George, kissing him on either cheek before giving him a swift hug.
[18:43] <Shuro Takanowa> Great job, George. We're real proud of you.
[18:43] * Shuro Takanowa takes Georges hand in her firm grip and gives it a firm shake.
[18:44] <George Glass> I-I'm so glad you two made it.
[18:44] <George Glass> It's a real honor.
[18:44] *** has joined #suburbansenshi3
[18:44] <@spiritflame> konbanwa
[18:44] *** Kanri-chan has joined #suburbansenshi3
[18:44] <@spiritflame> konbanwa kanri-chan
[18:46] * Kanri-chan looks around at all the art curiously pulling her beanie down a bit more. she's hidden her cat features and for once looks like an average human
[18:47] * George Glass eyes their outfits. Aya's dressed in a Gorgeous designer floor length gown with expensive jewellry. Shuro's wearing a slim cut vest and jacket with matching slacks. Though she isn't as heavily accesorized as Aya, the few pieces she wears speaks of a lot of wealth. The two of them look like the perfect couple and George is saddened and mildly jealous.
[18:48] <Aya Mitsuske> Shuro and I were recently looking for new pieces for our new home, weren't we Shuro?
[18:48] <Aya Mitsuske> And I said to her one day, I know, we can get some of Georgie-poo's new work!
[18:48] * Aya Mitsuske smiles brightly at George, her eyes filled with kindness and warmth.
[18:48] <Shuro Takanowa> We'll definitely be purchasing something before we go, George. We've always loved your stuff.
[18:49] <Aya Mitsuske> Probably several things, actually.
[18:49] * George Glass is smiling like a star-struck fool the whole time. However, his smile falters, and he asks with a whisper, "How did you get in here, Aya?"
[18:49] <George Glass> You know, because of...your past?
[18:50] * Aya Mitsuske waves her hand as if she were wiping it away, "That's old news, Georgie. Art is ever evolving and getting grander. One can't merely live in the past."
[18:50] <Aya Mitsuske> Come, my love. Let's go browse and grace these people with our presence.
[18:51] * Kanri-chan looks at all the fancy dresses and stays to the side. should've worn something other than her white innocent dress and brown sandals..
[18:51] * Shuro Takanowa leans down to whisper in George's ear, "We bribed them quite a large amount to let her back in here. Plus, she wasn't ever officially arrested under Japanese law." She then takes her wife's outstretched hand and melts into the crowd with her.
[18:52] * George Glass feels like a balloon finally let out all of its air as he watches the two Uranus Satellite Senshi melt into the crowd. (They're so amazing...)
[18:53] <George Glass> (I wonder if I could ever find someone to share with a love like that.)
[18:54] * George Glass relaxes some more, though his eyes follow the flow of people as they eye his glass sculptures and works of art.
[18:55] * Kanri-chan looks around for at least ONE friendly face as her anxiety rises.
[18:55] * George Glass sees off on the opposite side of the gallery, weird paintings by the other artists.
[18:56] <Kanri-chan> (i should've stayed with momma.. what if they chase me out again!)
[18:57] * George Glass sees a flash of silver hair in the mix of people. He tries to get a better look.
[18:59] <George Glass> (Is that Starlight?)
[19:00] * Kanri-chan is trying to find a spot where she's not being elbowed around
[19:02] * George Glass quickly goes into the crowd, evading elbows with ease. He reaches Kanri from behind, gently grabs her by the crook of his elbow, and whispers hotly, "I was hoping you'd come, Starlight."
[19:03] * Kanri-chan visibly shivers and turns around to see who grabbed her
[19:03] <Kanri-chan>! im so glad yuhr here! *blush*
[19:06] * George Glass chuckles deeply in his chest as he pulls Kanri closer. "i wouldn't miss my own art exhibit, silly." He turns to bring her out of the crowd and back to his corner. He lowers his voice a little, leaning in again as he rests his hand on Kanri's lower back, feeling her tail hidden beneath her belt, and whispers, "I'm so glad you came."
[19:07] * Kanri-chan blushes and nods looking up at georges gorgeous features starstruck "i said id come right?"
[19:08] * George Glass nods, keeping his eyes locked on hers. "Have you seen anything so far that you've liked?" There's a very small smile tugging at the corner of his lips as he asks.
[19:09] <Kanri-chan> (why is george so gorgeous.. like a fallen angel) yes.. *stares at george*
[19:10] <George Glass> Oh yeah? I hope it was one of my pieces.
[19:11] * Kanri-chan nods "its not a peice.." turns bright red
[19:13] <George Glass> Oh?
[19:13] <George Glass> (Watch yourself, George. Don't get too close. You don't want to ruin it like your last relationship.)
[19:13] * Kanri-chan nods and chews her bottom lip nervously
[19:15] <Kanri-chan> not a peice but just as beautiful.
[19:15] <George Glass> And what's that?
[19:16] * George Glass reaches out, hesitates, and gently takes one of Kanri's hands into his own.
[19:18] * Kanri-chan feels her face heat up like a stove. (touch.. hand... george)
[19:18] <Kanri-chan> yuh
[19:19] * George Glass smiles. There's a glimmer of fear that dashes across his eyes but they quickly fill with warmth as he gives her hand a small squeeze.
[19:20] * Kanri-chan smiles shyly and squeezes back gently
[19:21] <Kanri-chan> (well georege didnt run)
[19:21] * George Glass looks up, breaking his locked on gaze, and sees someone he recognizes.
[19:21] <George Glass> Excuse me, Starlight. I think I need to shmooze some more.
[19:21] <Kanri-chan> shmooze?
[19:21] * George Glass nods with a smile.
[19:22] <George Glass> I've gotta get my name out there, you know.
[19:22] <George Glass> I'll be back, okay?
[19:22] <Kanri-chan> ok
[19:22] * Kanri-chan bite 6++++++++++++++++
[19:23] <Kanri-chan> 0/ooc sorry my cat waled across my key board!!!!
[19:23] * George Glass gives her hand another squeeze (Kissing her hand would be so lame, wouldn't it? Just go before you make an idiot of yourself.) and let's go.
[19:23] <George Glass> (( lol it's fine ))
[19:23] * George Glass smiles at her and melts into the crowd to talk to someone Important.
[19:23] * Kanri-chan whimpers slightly as george leaves
[19:24] <Kanri-chan> (alone again..)
[19:24] * Kanri-chan looks around searching for georges peices with his name
[19:26] * Mayu Minamoto sidles up to Kanri on one side. Regina sidles up on her other side.
[19:26] <Mayu Minamoto> Hey.
[19:27] <Kanri-chan> 0.0
[19:27] * Regina Lee refuses to look at Kanri as she's busy keeping her hidden eyes locked on George.
[19:27] * Kanri-chan jumps and turns to them
[19:27] <Kanri-chan> h..hi?
[19:28] * Mayu Minamoto smiles at Kanri.
[19:28] <Mayu Minamoto> Hey.
[19:28] <Mayu Minamoto> Surprised to see me out of Charm Coffee, right?
[19:29] * Kanri-chan looks pure terrified of the two girls as she looks at them "hi?"
[19:29] * Regina Lee is silent, her arms crossed over her chest.
[19:30] <Kanri-chan> um
[19:31] * Mayu Minamoto is in a relaxed, content position.
[19:32] <Mayu Minamoto> Georgie's a really great artist, isn't he?
[19:32] <Kanri-chan> i havent seen any of george's work yet.. i umm i was looking for them
[19:33] <Mayu Minamoto> Oh, really?
[19:33] <Mayu Minamoto> I can show you some if you want.
[19:33] * Regina Lee makes a rude noise.
[19:34] * Kanri-chan fiddles with her dress hem staring at the floor trembling like a leaf and nods
[19:34] <Regina Lee> There's one right there.
[19:34] * Kanri-chan blinks and looks in the direction
[19:35] * Regina Lee points to a glass statue near them that's about three feet tall. It's of a beautiful naked woman with long hair that flows all around her like a waterfall on the wind. She's in a comforting, non-sexualized pose.
[19:35] * Kanri-chan stares in awe at it gasping softly
[19:37] <Kanri-chan> wow.. she's so gorgeous..thats glass??
[19:37] * Regina Lee glances at Kanri, seeing that she's busy looking at the sculpture, and frowns.
[19:37] <Mayu Minamoto> Yup.
[19:37] <Mayu Minamoto> It's like magic to George.
[19:38] <Mayu Minamoto> Well, maybe it is. I never bothered to ask if George uses senshi powers or not for glass blowing.
[19:39] * Kanri-chan is captivated by the beauty in the glass her instincts takking over because its so shiny "pretty~"
[19:39] * Regina Lee glares at Kanri but no one can see it since her eyes are hidden by her bangs.
[19:40] <Regina Lee> I'm going to go give my regards to George and then I'm going to leave.
[19:40] <Mayu Minamoto> What, so soon?
[19:40] <Regina Lee> Yes.
[19:41] * Mayu Minamoto shrugs. "Alright, but he looks a little busy right now."
[19:41] * Regina Lee doesn't listen to Mayu as she melts into the crowd in George's direction.
[19:41] * Kanri-chan looks back at regina "d..did i do something wrong?" face falls
[19:43] <Mayu Minamoto> Nah, I wouldn't worry about it.
[19:43] * Mayu Minamoto is eating some Special Edition Pocky that was specifically made for the event by one of the other artists being shown off here. She offers one to Kanri.
[19:44] * Kanri-chan shakes her head and looks down "no thank yuh ma'am"
[19:44] <Mayu Minamoto> You sure?
[19:45] * Kanri-chan nods slowly and looks at the sculpture
[19:45] <Mayu Minamoto> Alright, suit yourself.
[19:46] * Mayu Minamoto continues to eating and puts the rest of the pocky away in her purse.
[19:46] <Mayu Minamoto> You know, we can go look at other pieces of his.
[19:47] *** There's a loud slap heard from somewhere near George's general direction. Kanri and Mayu can't see what happened but they can see as Regina storms out of the building. The hush of crowd disappears as the dj switches up the song and they get back to their conversations.
[19:48] * Kanri-chan nods and looks at mayu wide eyed
[19:48] <Kanri-chan> what was that??
[19:48] * Mayu Minamoto shakes her head with a sigh.
[19:48] <Mayu Minamoto> It's none of our business.
[19:48] <Kanri-chan> ?
[19:48] <Mayu Minamoto> C'mon, I saw a really nice one you might like.
[19:49] * Kanri-chan frowns but follows mayu
[19:50] * Mayu Minamoto leads Kanri to another area of the showcase. In front of them is a large sculpture. It's obviously a naked Michiru Kaioh surrounded in a flowing whirlwind of water. She's reaching upwards, a sad expression of yearning on her face.
[19:51] <Kanri-chan> why is she sad?
[19:52] <Mayu Minamoto> I dunno.
[19:52] <Mayu Minamoto> i don't really know much about Neptune and their relationships and stuff.
[19:52] <Mayu Minamoto> I'm more of a Saturn woman myself.
[19:52] <Kanri-chan> who did this??
[19:52] <Kanri-chan> saturn?
[19:53] * Mayu Minamoto points to the sign beneath the glass statue. It reads: "To the Sea, to the Sky, Surely" by George Glass
[19:54] <Mayu Minamoto> Nevermind.
[19:54] <Mayu Minamoto> George really is fantastic, isn't he.
[19:54] <Mayu Minamoto> I wish I was so skilled.
[19:54] <Kanri-chan> georege saw her naked?
[19:54] * Kanri-chan blushes
[19:55] <Mayu Minamoto> Who knows?
[19:55] <Mayu Minamoto> It could be artistic liberty.
[19:55] <Mayu Minamoto> I'm preeeetty sure George isn't the type that has naked women all over him.
[19:55] * Mayu Minamoto laughs.
[19:55] <Kanri-chan> george can do that?
[19:56] <Mayu Minamoto> Hm?
[19:58] <Kanri-chan> but george is beautiful...
[19:58] <Mayu Minamoto> What was that?
[19:58] * Kanri-chan slaps her hand over her mouth
[19:58] <Kanri-chan> i mean uhh.. well. umm
[19:59] * Mayu Minamoto smiles.
[19:59] * George Glass finds the two of them, "Oh there you are, Starlight."
[19:59] <George Glass> Ah, I thought you'd be here, Mayu.
[19:59] * Kanri-chan is bright red and flustered stuttering incompetently
[19:59] * George Glass is rubbing a red hand print on his face though his eyes smile when he looks at Kanri.
[20:00] * Kanri-chan pomfs red and holds her breath unkowingly
[20:01] <Mayu Minamoto> You've got some impressive skills, Georgie.
[20:03] <Mayu Minamoto> You think you could whip up something for Charm Coffee?
[20:04] <Mayu Minamoto> You know I like to have a little something of all of us in there.
[20:04] * Mayu Minamoto smiles at him.
[20:04] <George Glass> I'd be glad to, Mayu.
[20:04] * Kanri-chan stares at george with her heart racing in her head
[20:04] <George Glass> Gimme a week or so and I'll see what I can churn out for you.
[20:04] <Mayu Minamoto> Thanks, Georgie.
[20:04] * Mayu Minamoto claps her hand on his shoulder and gives it a squeeze.
[20:04] <Mayu Minamoto> I'll see you two around.
[20:05] * Mayu Minamoto whispers something into George's ear. She leaves with a cackle as George turns red.
[20:06] * Kanri-chan blinks
[20:07] <Kanri-chan> umm what happened george?
[20:07] * George Glass coughs into his hand, trying to calm down.
[20:07] <George Glass> N-nothing, Mayu was just being Mayu.
[20:08] <Kanri-chan> what did she say?
[20:09] <George Glass> Oh, it's nothing, no big deal.
[20:09] * George Glass eventually stops blushing and the hand print, though fading, is once again visible on his cheek.
[20:10] * Kanri-chan moves a bit closer looking at the print "hows yuhr cheek?"
[20:11] <George Glass> Huh?
[20:11] <George Glass> Oh, this? It's nothing.
[20:11] <George Glass> I've had worse.
[20:11] * Kanri-chan frowns "why would anyone want to hurt yuh?"
[20:12] <George Glass> It's a long story from my past. I don't want to get into it. Especially not here.
[20:13] * Kanri-chan looks down blushing "im sorry i didnt mean to pry"
[20:14] <George Glass> It's fine.
[20:14] * Kanri-chan peeks up at george shyly
[20:15] <George Glass> Hey, you want to cut out for the night?
[20:16] <George Glass> The exhibit's going to go on for maybe another hour or two but I don't have to stay here the whole time.
[20:16] <George Glass> Besides, I just made the deal of a lifetime.
[20:16] * Kanri-chan nods and looks at george admiringly
[20:16] <Kanri-chan> congratulations!!
[20:16] * Kanri-chan beams happily "we should celebrate!"
[20:18] * George Glass smiles.
[20:18] * A bit of noise can be heard outside. Something or someone is approaching the building VERY quickly.
[20:18] * George Glass takes Kanri's hand in his.
[20:18] * Kanri-chan blushes and sighs
[20:18] <Kanri-chan> not again
[20:19] * Kanri-chan gasps and squeels a bit at the touch happily
[20:19] <Voice> Crapcrapcrapcrapcrap thingsranWAYTOO LONG!!!
[20:19] <Kanri-chan> my hand~
[20:19] *** Morrigan [SexyNaughtyBitchyMe@EnclaveFedCom.Net] has joined #suburbansenshi3
[20:19] <@spiritflame> konbanwa morrigan
[20:19] *** Nelius Raoul has joined #suburbansenshi3
[20:19] <@spiritflame> konbanwa nelius raoul
[20:19] <Morrigan> I hear something charging.
[20:20] * Nelius Raoul can be seen down the street. He is practically flying down the street!
[20:20] * George Glass doesn't see the newcomers as he's situated in a corner with Kanri, his attention focusing solely on her.
[20:20] <Nelius Raoul> I'm runnin' I'm runnin' I'm runnin' I'm runnin' I'm runnin' FOOTBAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLL!!
[20:20] * Kanri-chan pouts looking at raoul with a frown
[20:21] * Kanri-chan tries to ignore him looking at george
[20:21] * Nelius Raoul skiiiiiiiiiiiiiids to a stop. It's honestly surprising that his shoes haven't caught fire.
[20:21] <George Glass> Starlight, did you want to see my favorite sculpture that I did?
[20:21] <Kanri-chan> yes please!
[20:22] <Nelius Raoul> Hey all, sorry for how late things were. Gate travel was a little inconsistent on the hours and--
[20:22] * George Glass leads Kanri through the crowd, not having heard Nelius through the den of people.
[20:23] <Nelius Raoul> (Looks like I made it in time. Better slip in quick.)
[20:23] * Kanri-chan follows happily still grinning at their hands
[20:23] * George Glass brings Kanri to a fairly small statue, about a foot and a half in height.
[20:23] * Nelius Raoul goes to blend in with the crowd, despite having a good foot of height over most of the patrons.
[20:24] * Nelius Raoul 's eye s[BLEEP]ts from left to right, taking in the various exhibits.
[20:24] <Nelius Raoul> *shifts
[20:24] * Kanri-chan looks at the sculpture intrigued
[20:24] *** The statue looks like a very stylized Kanri. The ears and tail are exaggerated a little, but her facial features are definitely recognizable. She's asleep, dressed in a flowing, crystal gown, atop of a cloud.
[20:25] * Kanri-chan is bright bright red "is..iss.iss
[20:25] <Nelius Raoul> (Hm, was that Kanri headed over that way? And there's--)
[20:25] <Morrigan> Cute.
[20:25] * George Glass stays quiet, his hand still holding Kanri's.
[20:25] * Nelius Raoul heads for the main hall. He sights Morrigan, George and Kanri at a new sculpture.
[20:26] * George Glass turns and sees Morrigan.
[20:26] <Nelius Raoul> (Whoa, that looks just like Kanri.)
[20:26] * Kanri-chan stares at the sculpture in awe
[20:27] <Nelius Raoul> Amazing.
[20:27] * George Glass sees that Nelius has shown up as well. He quickly lets go.
[20:27] <George Glass> Hey, you made it!
[20:28] * Kanri-chan stares at the sculpture to hide her dissapointment
[20:29] <George Glass> Have you gotten a good look at everything yet?
[20:29] <George Glass> Any favorites?
[20:30] <Nelius Raoul> Just got here. Gate saw fit to spit me out hours after the exhibit started.
[20:30] * Thrash looks over one of the sculptures
[20:30] <Morrigan> I only just arrived myself. I haven't had the opportunity to see the whole exhibit.
[20:30] <Thrash> hmm...
[20:30] *** Thrash has joined #suburbansenshi3
[20:30] <@spiritflame> konbanwa thrash
[20:30] <Nelius Raoul> Still, there's quite a lot here to view.
[20:31] * George Glass nods.
[20:31] <Matsumi Kaze> why are we here again >:(
[20:31] *** Matsumi Kaze [] has joined #suburbansenshi3
[20:31] <@spiritflame> konbanwa matsumi kaze
[20:31] <George Glass> All of the glasswork on display is mine.
[20:32] <Thrash> I told you...a little detour...
[20:32] * Kanri-chan looks back at raoul
[20:32] <George Glass> The paintings belong to someone named Mori Maori, and the "Modern Art" belongs to KEST-A.
[20:32] * George Glass rolls his eyes.
[20:32] <Nelius Raoul> So I've noticed..
[20:33] <Morrigan> Mori Maori? That name sound vaguely familiar.
[20:33] <Nelius Raoul> From the way you mentioned the latter... gonna guess there's bad blood?
[20:33] <George Glass> Tch.
[20:34] <George Glass> KEST-A's a hack, if you ask me.
[20:34] <Thrash> it has to be here...
[20:34] <George Glass> I'm George Glass and this is Kanri. What's your name, miss...?
[20:34] * Kanri-chan fidgets and looks around
[20:35] <Morrigan> Morrigan Aensland.
[20:35] <Matsumi Kaze> bored bored bored bored
[20:35] * George Glass nods with a smile.
[20:36] * George Glass places his hand on Kanri's back and leans down to whisper, "Relax, don't be so nervous."
[20:37] * Matsumi Kaze wanders through the crowd, sighing
[20:37] * Kanri-chan blushes and relaxes visibly. what kind of voodoo did george do to her?
[20:37] * George Glass sees someone waving to him in the distance.
[20:37] <George Glass> Excuse me, folks. I need to go have a chat with someone.
[20:38] <George Glass> I'll be back in a bit, okay? Enjoy yourselves. Look at all the art. And, maybe, if you're interested, purchase a piece.
[20:38] <Morrigan> That's all right. I'd like some time to see what you've got displayed here.
[20:38] * George Glass grins.
[20:38] * Morrigan begins to tour the whole exhibit.
[20:38] <Kanri-chan> (purchase??)
[20:38] * Nelius Raoul notices Kanri's looking a bit out of it.
[20:38] <Nelius Raoul> Kanri?
[20:38] * George Glass lowers his hand down Kanri's back and rests it just above her backside. He takes his hand away and goes to speak with whoever was waving to him.
[20:39] * Thrash moves from piece to piece, looking it over
[20:39] * Kanri-chan looks back at the kanri sculpture and smiles a bit
[20:40] <Nelius Raoul> You are yes, this is truck, hello?
[20:40] <George Glass> (( I'll be back in a bit, seriously need dinner. Tour the hall! You might find several glass sculptures of recognizable people. Or even just fancy glass figures with no realy shape or person of interest. Idk, i'm hungry. Be back soon. ))
[20:40] * Matsumi Kaze glances at her reflection in a glass figure....and sticks her tongue out at it
[20:41] * Kanri-chan looks at onee chan and goes over grabbing her arm and pulling onee chan to the little kanri sculpture "stop sticking yuhr tongue out onee chan"
[20:42] * Nelius Raoul sights Matsumi. He's wondering how she's doing after the incident the other day.
[20:43] <Nelius Raoul> (Even if that being was pathetic, nobody should ever have to go through with that.)
[20:43] * Kanri-chan points to some of the paintings trying to cheer up onee chan
[20:43] * Nelius Raoul approaches Matsumi and Kanri, taking the time to look at some of the art while he's at it.
[20:44] <Kanri-chan> look at this one onee chan.. its really pretty. look at the gold
[20:45] <Kanri-chan> (( gomenasai brb i really really have to pee sorry ))
[20:47] <Matsumi Kaze> whoooooa
[20:48] * Kanri-chan nods and looks points out little things that yumi taght her
[20:48] * YumikoTakanashi sneaks in a behind raoul and stays quiet looking around
[20:49] <Morrigan> Kanri~!
[20:49] <Morrigan> You didn't like that one statue?
[20:49] * Nelius Raoul views the art. Many of the sculptures and pantings are quite nice.... did he see something familiar over that way?
[20:49] * Thrash , meanwhile, is looking over every piece of art
[20:50] <Kanri-chan> which one?
[20:50] <Morrigan> The one that looked like you.
[20:50] * Nelius Raoul looks around, wondering if he'd seen someone familiar. He shrugs, returning to his viewing.
[20:51] * Kanri-chan pulls onee chan over to another painting blushing bright red "um yea"
[20:51] <Nelius Raoul> (Some of this stuff is nice. Though, considering the Hell to Yen ratio, I didn't bring anywhere near enough to grab some of this.)
[20:52] * YumikoTakanashi reaches up and pulls the eyepatch strap back a bit and lets go. its not enough to hurt
[20:52] * Nelius Raoul turns around to see who pulled on his eyepatch strap.
[20:52] * YumikoTakanashi hides behind him again
[20:53] <Nelius Raoul> ...
[20:53] <Kanri-chan> onee chan did yuh see the kitty?
[20:53] <Morrigan> Why'd it upset you though? Most abstract sculptures aren't meant to be 100% accurate.
[20:53] <Matsumi Kaze> whoa!
[20:54] * Nelius Raoul turns his head to the left. Unbeknownst to whomever is behind him, he can now see out of that eye-- but it's a different kind of sight.
[20:54] <Nelius Raoul> I know you're back there~
[20:55] <Kanri-chan> im not upset.. im
[20:55] <Kanri-chan> umm well.
[20:56] <Nelius Raoul> So then, Yumiko, care to tell me why you felt the need to tug the strap?
[20:56] * YumikoTakanashi sticks the patch in raoul's pocket and takes off
[20:56] <Nelius Raoul> ?? What the--
[20:57] * Kanri-chan is bright red flustered and stuttering.. that should say it all
[20:57] <Nelius Raoul> (Why'd Yumiko take off like that?)
[20:57] <Matsumi Kaze> ???
[20:58] * George Glass finishes up his business and turns to try and find Kanri through the crowd.
[20:58] * Nelius Raoul decides to leave the eyepatch off. The scarring around his left eye has mostly healed up, and all most people would see is a black void if they tried to look into his left eye.
[20:59] * YumikoTakanashi sneaks up behind kanri with a shhhhh gesture
[20:59] <Nelius Raoul> (Matsumi seems very much-- oh boy, this is gonna be good.)
[21:00] * Nelius Raoul notices Yumiko sneaking up on Kanri. He has an idea of what she's planning to do.
[21:00] * Thrash pauses in front of a painting..........and frowns
[21:01] * Kanri-chan huffs and blushes redder "i just.. umm.."
[21:01] <Nelius Raoul> (Well, this confirms it. Kanri's got it BAD for George.)
[21:02] * George Glass can't seem to find anyone. (Starlight should be fine. All of her friends are hre.) He starts to get nervous again. He makes eye contact with the same waitress as before. She saunters over and hands him a drink. She whispers that it was specially made just for him and walks away with an extra shake in her booty just for him. He blushes, wondering if he should drink it or not.
[21:02] * George Glass shrugs and downs it.
[21:03] * Nelius Raoul , given that he towers over most of the patrons, puts his height to good use, and tries to sight George.
[21:03] <YumikoTakanashi> i think what our adorable kanri is trying to say is she's got biggest hots for the artist. therefore every sculpture looks like a million bucks to her.
[21:03] * YumikoTakanashi takes off again
[21:04] <Kanri-chan> 0///////////////////////////////////0
[21:04] * George Glass is spotted by Nelius though. Does he look more flushed than usual?
[21:05] <Nelius Raoul> (Well, it would seem that Yumiko has not only reinforced my thoughts, she's taken a level in teasing.)
[21:05] * Matsumi Kaze is just wandering around, looking bored
[21:05] * Nelius Raoul sights George on the other side of the exhibit hall.... George's face is slowly becoming red. Did something happen?
[21:05] * George Glass spots Matsumi and goes to her, stumbling against people.
[21:05] <George Glass> Ma-Matsuuumi!
[21:05] <Nelius Raoul> (That stumbling--)
[21:05] * YumikoTakanashi skips over to george "dood yuhr face"
[21:06] * Nelius Raoul makes his way over to George and Matsumi.
[21:06] <Matsumi Kaze> huh????
[21:07] <George Glass> HEY Matsumi!!
[21:07] * Kanri-chan stares at the floor brain dead and BRIGHT red. yuh could say she blew a fuse
[21:07] <Matsumi Kaze> hi there
[21:07] * George Glass leans on Matsumi's shoulder. His vest and button down shirt have seemingly unbuttoned themselves on the way over, revealing the thin white shirt beneath.
[21:08] <Nelius Raoul> (Whew, I can smell the booze from here. How much did George have to drink?)
[21:08] <Matsumi Kaze> hi george!
[21:09] <George Glass> H-hey. Ya seen Starlight Raindrop Dewbeam?
[21:09] <YumikoTakanashi> lets hope kanri doesnt see george..
[21:09] * George Glass looks almost like he's running a fever?!
[21:09] * Nelius Raoul points Yumiko over to where Kanri is. She doesn't seem to have moved.
[21:09] * Kanri-chan makes her way to nelius's head "guys what happened?
[21:09] <Matsumi Kaze> no?
[21:09] <YumikoTakanashi> 0.0
[21:09] <Matsumi Kaze> you ok???
[21:10] <Nelius Raoul> Hey Kanri. Have you been learning to teleport?
[21:10] <Kanri-chan> huh?
[21:10] <Kanri-chan> no why?
[21:11] <George Glass> have you not seen..the prettiest girl in the world...
[21:11] <Kanri-chan> whats wrong with george? why's george's face so red??
[21:11] * George Glass trails off as his eyes flutter and he collapses in a faint.
[21:11] <Nelius Raoul> ...I believe George had too much to drink.
[21:11] <Kanri-chan> george!!
[21:11] * Matsumi Kaze gets pinned under george O_O
[21:12] * Nelius Raoul reaches down to pull George off Matsumi.
[21:12] * Kanri-chan runs over and tries fruitlessly to pull him off
[21:12] <Nelius Raoul> C'mon, up you go...
[21:12] * Nelius Raoul gets George to his feet, though it would seem the glassblower is out cold.
[21:13] * George Glass is in fact out cold. However, his body is unnaturally hot, though his face is pale, and he's soaked with sweat. How could someone get so sick so suddenly like this??
[21:13] <Matsumi Kaze> @_@
[21:14] * Matsumi Kaze is grabbed by the wrist!
[21:14] <Nelius Raoul> ...something's wrong. George is WAY too warm for it to be excessive alcohol.
[21:14] <Matsumi Kaze> h-hey!
[21:14] <Thrash> COME ON!
[21:14] * Nelius Raoul looks over to see Thrash.
[21:14] * Nelius Raoul looks at Thrash.
[21:14] *** Thrash is young man with long shoulder length black hair and brown eyes. He wears a red jacket opened to show his chest, black leather pants, boots and a black eyepatch over his right eye and is 6'5. He is in his fourth regeneration.
His image Song is: "Holding Out For a Hero" by Bonnie Tyler. He is Level 1.

[21:15] <Kanri-chan> nelious has a twin?
[21:15] <Kanri-chan> 0.0
[21:15] *** The owner of Shiho's Art Gallery, Shiho Tatsuki, has seen the commotion! She comes over and demands to know what's going on. She doesn't immediately recognize George in his disheveled state; he looks more feminine than before.
[21:16] *** Morrigan [SexyNaughtyBitchyMe@EnclaveFedCom.Net] has left #suburbansenshi3 ("You all love me; don't be ashamed to admit it.")
[21:16] <Matsumi Kaze> wh..what's going on???
[21:16] <Thrash> we have to find that artist!!! that painting...IT SHOULDN'T BE HERE
[21:16] <YumikoTakanashi> HE DRANK SOMETHING..
[21:16] * Thrash drags matsumi out
[21:16] *** Thrash has left #suburbansenshi3 (come on!)
[21:17] *** Matsumi Kaze [] has left #suburbansenshi3 (@_@)
[21:17] * Nelius Raoul looks to Shiho Tatsuki and explains George's sudden illness. He suspects George's drink was tampered with.
[21:17] * Kanri-chan frowns "that one waitress kept eye balling george" feels a pang of jealsousy
[21:18] *** Shiho frowns. She states that it's a serious accusation. She asks if they know who the waitress is.
[21:18] <Nelius Raoul> Which one? If you could get a look at them, could you identify her, Kanri?
[21:19] *** Matsumi Kaze [] has joined #suburbansenshi3
[21:19] <@spiritflame> konbanwa matsumi kaze
[21:19] <Matsumi Kaze> hey guys!!!!
[21:19] * Matsumi Kaze walks in, suckng on a popscycle
[21:19] <Kanri-chan> well yea.. but what if she's gone?
[21:21] <Nelius Raoul> Hrm...
[21:21] <Nelius Raoul> Hey Matsumi. Who was your friend?
[21:21] <Kanri-chan> i'll try though
[21:22] *** Shiho gently urges that the group follow her to a secluded room where they can rest George for now. In the meantime, she speaks into her earpiece and calls over all available waitresses.
[21:22] <Matsumi Kaze> huh what friend?
[21:22] * Kanri-chan follows close to george with a wrried look
[21:22] <Kanri-chan> yumi the kitty!
[21:23] * Matsumi Kaze is wearing different clothes from before
[21:23] <YumikoTakanashi> matsu?
[21:23] * YumikoTakanashi nods to kanri
[21:23] * Nelius Raoul follows Shiho to the secluded room, making certain that George is close by. Once in the room, he sets George onto a chair.
[21:24] * Kanri-chan puts her hand to georges forehead
[21:24] <Matsumi Kaze> huh yeah yumi?
[21:24] <YumikoTakanashi> where all have yuh been today?
[21:24] <Nelius Raoul> (Curiouser and curiouser.... Matsumi was originally out of it, and accompanying that other man with the eyepatch.... and now she's here and in different clothing? I smell a rat.)
[21:24] *** Five waitresses come into the room behind them. One of them looks nervous, she's holding another uniform in her hand. It seems to be covered in some sort of unholy substance? Shiho turns to the group and asks if any of these waitresses are the ones that did it.
[21:25] <Nelius Raoul> Kanri, can you identify the one making eyes at George?
[21:25] * George Glass is still out of it. His pulse seems to be racing.
[21:25] <Nelius Raoul> (Yumiko, keep Matsumi occupied... assuming this is Matsumi.)
[21:25] * Kanri-chan sniffs at the girls shaking her head at all but one.. "she's gone.. she left. yuh know where she is dont yuh"
[21:26] <Nelius Raoul> (So slip a Mickey and run, huh?)
[21:26] * YumikoTakanashi 's blood boils
[21:26] <YumikoTakanashi> matsu!
[21:27] * Kanri-chan looks at the uniform is the girl's hands and sniffs it
[21:27] *** The nervous looking waitress steps forward and says that she found this uniform in the janitor's closet, soaked in this strange substance. Shiho gets mad, feeling like this is all some stupid ploy. She can't have this ruining her show. She makes an ultimatum, telling them to get out. She apologizes and thrusts the dirtied uniform at Nelius.
[21:28] <Matsumi Kaze> huh???
[21:28] * Kanri-chan hisses at the uniform and slaps it down
[21:29] <Nelius Raoul> ...Kanri, do you know what was on that uniform?
[21:29] *** Shiho demands that they leave her establishment. Now. She points the way out, her eyes smoldering.
[21:29] <Kanri-chan> dont touch it
[21:29] <Kanri-chan> its evil..
[21:29] <YumikoTakanashi> where were yuh before here
[21:30] <Nelius Raoul> In what manner, Kanri? You know what that is?
[21:30] <Kanri-chan> something unholy.. its not human who ever it was..
[21:31] * Nelius Raoul is becoming convinced there's something more than just a drugging attempt.
[21:31] <Nelius Raoul> Now that you mention it...
[21:31] * Kanri-chan goes over to george and sniffs the wrist at the veins
[21:31] <Matsumi Kaze> huh? I was at the hotel
[21:31] <Kanri-chan> (please dont smell the same)
[21:31] *** Shiho throws her hands up into the air and storms out of the room, calling for security to kick them all out.
[21:32] <YumikoTakanashi> f[BLEEP]k.. come with me
[21:32] * Nelius Raoul overhears Matsumi. Something is definitely wrong.
[21:32] * YumikoTakanashi grabs matsu and takes her to the other rrom snatching up the kitty sculpture
[21:32] <Nelius Raoul> Well, c'mon Kanri, we should get George to the Hotel to sober up and beat this.... whatever it is.
[21:32] <Matsumi Kaze> h-hey!
[21:33] * Kanri-chan sighs "the same.. nelius.. george smells the same
[21:33] <Nelius Raoul> Why am I not surprised?
[21:34] * YumikoTakanashi turns to raoul still holding matsu "it wasnt matsu
[21:34] <YumikoTakanashi> is it the mara?
[21:34] *** Two BIG security guards show up and stops Yumiko in her tracks. The grab ahold of her, yank the sculpture away from her, and go to call the cops. At the same time, nicer security guards go over to the rest of the group and begin to user them all out. The other guests of the gallery are staring at them for causing such a scene.
[21:34] <Nelius Raoul> Better get this stuff out of George's system either way.
[21:34] * Nelius Raoul is escorted outside, George still in tow.
[21:35] <Nelius Raoul> Say, Yumiko, is there as reason why you had the statue? (Aside from my gut instinct yelling at me?)
[21:35] * George Glass is escorted to the Hotel.
[21:35] <YumikoTakanashi> kanri wanted it
[21:35] <YumikoTakanashi> these are some rude security.
[21:35] <Nelius Raoul> Ah... if I'd remembered the exhibit was today, I'd have brought more money.
[21:36] <Nelius Raoul> Also...
[21:36] <YumikoTakanashi> i did.
[21:36] * Nelius Raoul motions for Yumiko to come closer.
[21:36] * YumikoTakanashi lends her ear
[21:37] <Nelius Raoul> Is it just me, or does this Matsumi seem way too different? First she leaves in someone's tow, then she's back in different clothes and a better, more alert attitude?
[21:37] <YumikoTakanashi> that wasnt the real matsu
[21:37] <YumikoTakanashi> /sqeak ^
[21:38] <YumikoTakanashi> this is the real matsu.. she just got here
[21:38] <Nelius Raoul> So the real one is here.... which means the fake left with that other guy...
[21:39] <Nelius Raoul> ....oh hell. Yumiko, we should get back to the Hotal ASAP.
[21:39] <Matsumi Kaze> ??
[21:39] <YumikoTakanashi> who can copy another person though? what painting were they looking for?
[21:39] <YumikoTakanashi> matsu?
[21:40] <Matsumi Kaze> huh yeah?
[21:40] <Nelius Raoul> I don't know, but that guy seemed to know, and the body-double is with him. George was also taken to the Hotel to be treated for whatever was slipped into his system.
[21:40] <YumikoTakanashi> do me a huge favor and stay with tan chan in my room wih kanri ?
[21:41] <YumikoTakanashi> we need to get back.. now
[21:42] <Matsumi Kaze> um ok?
[21:42] * Nelius Raoul summons his wings. This time, he has four massive wings. Like this, he can carry everyone at once.
[21:43] <Nelius Raoul> Climb on. I can have us back at the Hotel two minutes ago.
[21:43] <YumikoTakanashi> <.<
[21:43] * YumikoTakanashi floats mid air "i can fly too thank yuh"
[21:43] * Kanri-chan changes to kitten form crawling into nelius's arms
[21:43] <Matsumi Kaze> huh???
[21:43] <Nelius Raoul> Eh, I offered.
[21:44] * Nelius Raoul lowers down to let Matsumi on his back.
[21:44] <YumikoTakanashi> matsu please? ill explain on the way
[21:44] <Nelius Raoul> Air Nelius, seating two today. Destination: the Hotel.
[21:45] <YumikoTakanashi> jokes? really?
[21:45] <Nelius Raoul> ...what?
[21:46] * Matsumi Kaze climbs on Raoul's back?
[21:46] * Nelius Raoul was trying to lighten the mood a little. Even he can't stay serious 24/7.
[21:46] * Nelius Raoul straightens up now that Matsumi is on board, and makes certain that Kanri is firmly holding on before lifting off.
[21:46] <YumikoTakanashi> its funny when yuh tell jokes
[21:48] <Nelius Raoul> Well, solve this now, joke more later.
[21:48] * Nelius Raoul gets high enough to avoid most of the buildings, and flies off.
[21:48] *** Kanri-chan has left #suburbansenshi3
[21:48] * YumikoTakanashi zips off with raoul explaining the incident to matsu
[21:48] *** Nelius Raoul has left #suburbansenshi3 (Back to the Hotel.)
[21:48] *** YumikoTakanashi has left #suburbansenshi3
[21:49] *** Matsumi Kaze [] has left #suburbansenshi3
[22:16] * Shiho has closed the art gallery and is cleaning up everything inside.
[22:18] * Nelius Raoul lands. He looks around for Shiso.
[22:19] <Nelius Raoul> I wonder where the owner is...
[22:20] * Nelius Raoul approaches the closed-off gallery.
[22:20] <Nelius Raoul> Excuse me... ah, whomever it is that owns this place... I apologize, but I'm bad with names.
[22:22] <Nelius Raoul> (..just great. Not around here-- hang on, do I hear movement?)
[22:23] * Nelius Raoul listens intently.
[22:25] * Nelius Raoul knocks on the door to the gallery.
[22:28] <Nelius Raoul> Hello?
[22:28] * Nelius Raoul tries the door to the gallery.
[22:30] * Shiho sees and hears someone at the door. She goes over and sees the man from before.
[22:30] <Shiho> (( Sorry, was switching computers/forgot ))
[22:30] <Nelius Raoul> Ah, hello.
[22:30] <Shiho> What do you want now?
[22:31] <Nelius Raoul> Do you still have the uniform that was found discarded in the janitor's closet? It might be a clue into what poisoned George Glass.
[22:31] * Shiho frowns.
[22:32] <Shiho> Don't you dare attempt to sue me. If you're going to go after anyone, it should be the catering company.
[22:32] * Shiho lets the man into the gallery. She double checks to make sure she has her weapon of choice concealed and on hand just in case he tries anything funny.
[22:32] * Nelius Raoul enters the gallery.
[22:32] <Nelius Raoul> I'm not here to sue, I'm here to help save George's life.
[22:33] * Shiho leads him to a different back room and comes out with the uniform in a tied up garbage bag.
[22:33] <Shiho> Here.
[22:33] <Nelius Raoul> Thanks. According to someone up at the Hotel, the same substance on this was found in George's bloodstream.
[22:33] * Shiho gives it to him.
[22:34] <Shiho> That's...strange.
[22:34] * Nelius Raoul takes the garbage bag.
[22:34] <Shiho> Look, I really don't want to know what's going on.
[22:34] <Nelius Raoul> There's been many weird things going on.
[22:34] <Shiho> If Glass gets better, tell me about it. He made quite a killing today with most of his pieces selling.
[22:34] <Shiho> I heard he made quite the contract, too.
[22:35] <Nelius Raoul> I will. George has a number of people awaiting his recovery.
[22:35] <Shiho> Good.
[22:35] <Shiho> Now get out.
[22:35] * Shiho makes shooing motions.
[22:35] <Nelius Raoul> Very well.
[22:35] * Nelius Raoul leaves the gallery.
[22:36] * Nelius Raoul steps onto the streets, summons his wings, and flies back to the Hotel, bag in tow.
[22:36] *** Nelius Raoul has left #suburbansenshi3 (I thank you. Perhaps we can find out what this substance is.)

[22:48] <@spiritflame> Current Location is: Minato Ward
[22:48] *** Nelius Raoul has joined #suburbansenshi3
[22:48] <@spiritflame> konbanwa nelius raoul
[22:48] * Nelius Raoul flies over Minato Ward, looking for the address Aes printed out for him.
[22:51] <Nelius Raoul> Hrm, let's see, if the info was right on the money.... then down there should be the place.
[22:53] * Nelius Raoul lands a small distance away from the address. Given that this was to gather information, being seen would be a bad thing.
[22:53] <Nelius Raoul> (So, how to go about this...)
[22:54] <Nelius Raoul> (Got it.)
[22:56] * Nelius Raoul finds a vacant spot between two houses, and steps in. For a moment, it becomes darker than normal.
[22:56] * Nelius Raoul is now known as Belderiver
[22:57] * Belderiver is keeping his power down, so as not to attract any attention. Keeping to the darker areas, he approaches the house.
[23:00] <Belderiver> (Let's see... no lights on, so she might be snoozing or out for the night.)
[23:01] * Belderiver keeps to the shadows and silently floats up to a window, peering in. There's nothing to suggest foul play at work--- wait a minute.
[23:01] <Belderiver> (Uh oh.)
[23:02] * Belderiver ducks down to avoid being seen as the waitress who wore the uniform enters the now lit up room. Seems she was showering recently.
[23:05] * Belderiver , thankful for having dodged a bullet, waits for her to finish up her business.
[23:08] * Belderiver peers back up, and the waitress is sound asleep, the lights out.
[23:08] <Belderiver> (That was close... though how do I investigate from here without being seen?)
[23:10] * Belderiver gets ready to silently open the window, when he notices the waitress shifting in her sleep. He strains his hearing, but can only make out... "Shatter the Glass".
[23:12] <Belderiver> (Shatter the Glass? I smell trouble.)
[23:13] * Belderiver extends his senses out to her, trying to peer into what she's dreaming-- and finds himself barred.
[23:17] <Belderiver> (A challenge, then?)
[23:18] * Belderiver extends his senses out again, and this time gets a small picture-- a female figure. However, that's all he gets before being barred again.
[23:18] <Belderiver> (So she's an unwitting pawn to this...)
[23:19] * Belderiver decides to get going before he's spotted by a local and labeled something horrendous.
[23:19] *** Belderiver has left #suburbansenshi3
[10:12] <@spiritflame> Current Location is: Warehouse 14, Tokyo Bay - Residence of George Glass (Late last night)
[10:17] *** It's nearly eleven p.m. and George is in a tizzy. Ey's wearing loose trousers held up by a belt, barely above eirs hips, and an open, short sleeve button down shirt, revealing eirs well muscled torso and bound chest.
[10:19] *** George is sitting at eirs work station in the lower, main floor of eirs warehouse. There's shattered glass all around eir, and discarded tools everywhere. It's a mess; half-finished pieces started and forgotten, nothing is working as it should.
[10:20] <George Glass> Ugh...why can't I do even the simplest thing!
[10:21] * George Glass runs eirs hands through eirs shaggy, short brown messy hair in exasperation. Eirs body is full of fresh glass burns, which ey doesn't even seem to notice.
[10:22] *** There's a faint knocking at the front door to the warehouse.
[10:22] <George Glass> (What the hell? Who knows where I live?)
[10:24] * George Glass glances up at eirs glass clock hanging from the ceiling and sees that it's 11:13. George frowns and picks up a pair of white hot glassworking tongs to defend eirself with just in case the need arrises. Ey heads over to eirs front door and opens it suddenly, eirs hand clutching the tongs tightly, demanding, "What do you want?"
[10:28] *** Regina Lee is standing at the front door, her hand held up in mid-knock. Surprisingly, she's wearing something other than her usual long sleeved turtle neck and slacks. She's clad in a pale green, short sleeve button down blouse that has several buttons open, a lowcut white tank top, a matching pale green headband, and akin tight, low hipped dark blue jeans and green, soft leather flats. She's holding something in a bag in her other hand.
[10:29] * Regina Lee is rendered speechless as she takes in George's scantily clad body, her cheeks turning pink.
[10:30] * George Glass is as stunned to see Regina as she is to see eir.
[10:30] <George Glass> Regina? What're you doing here?
[10:31] * Regina Lee composes herself. (Get yourself together!)
[10:31] <Regina Lee> I..I wanted to talk to you. May I come in?
[10:32] <George Glass> Y-yeah, sure. Come on in.
[10:33] * George Glass moves aside, letting Regina walk by eir and into eirs home.
[10:34] <George Glass> (( TO BE CONTINUED ))
[10:35] <> (( I actually have to get to work, so I'll hopefully continue this later tonight. ))

[14:35] *** the crew streches and heads off the stage..including "Katsumi"
[14:35] <Matsumi Kaze> huh where???
[14:36] * YumikoTakanashi says nothing but takes her to the "management office" yuh need to see something

[16:21] * YumikoTakanashi is back
[16:21] <YumikoTakanashi> yuh sure?
[16:43] *** YumikoTakanashi has left #suburbansenshi3

[17:05] <@spiritflame> Current Location is: Warehouse 14, Tokyo Bay - Residence of George Glass (Late last night) - Part 2
[17:08] *** Where we left off: George had let Regina into eirs home. She's dressed more provocatively (at least for her) than usual, and George is fairly scantily clad.
[17:14] * George Glass scratches the back of eirs head as ey watches Regina walk past em. Eir eyes find themselves locking on Regina's well defined backside and ey finds eirself blushing. Ey shakes eir head to clear eir thoughts and asks, "How did you find out where I live?"
[17:15] * Regina Lee turns from having been staring around George's home, wide eyed, "Hm? Oh, I asked Mayu and she told me."
[17:15] * Regina Lee faces George with a smile on her face.
[17:15] <George Glass> (Tch. Mayu should've known better not to give out my personal information like that.)
[17:16] * Regina Lee clutches the bag in her hands tightly.
[17:17] <Regina Lee> I...I was so worried when I had found out that you had been in the clinic.
[17:17] <Regina Lee> I was so upset when I found out today.
[17:17] <George Glass> You only found out today?
[17:18] * Regina Lee nods, looking down at her bag.
[17:18] <Regina Lee> I...was furious that no one told me sooner.
[17:18] <Regina Lee> I wanted to be by your side when you woke up.
[17:18] * George Glass blushes a little.
[17:18] <George Glass> Hey, come on, it's okay.
[17:18] <George Glass> I mean, you're here now, right?
[17:19] * George Glass looks around the main floor of his warehouse. The corner where ey was working is a huge mess, and the kitchen looks pretty unclean as well. Ey scratches the back of eir head again, feeling embarrassed.
[17:20] <George Glass> Hey, listen Regina, what if we head upstairs?
[17:20] <George Glass> I..ah..haven't had much time to clean up down here, so it's better to relax up there, you know?
[17:21] * Regina Lee looks up from her bag, a sparkle gleaming in her eye, which, obviously, George can't see because her eyes are covered by her bangs.
[17:21] <Regina Lee> Yes, I think that's a great idea.
[17:23] * George Glass nods and leads the way to eir spiral staircase leading to the lofted second floor that covers three out of the four walls of the building.
[17:23] * Regina Lee follows behind George, though looking around the place as she does.
[17:23] <Regina Lee> This place is so large. It's lovely here.
[17:24] <George Glass> Seriously? It looks pretty dreary. I mean, I try to spruce it up every once in a while with some tapestries that Esaru made for me, and some of my glass sculptures, but idk, it's not exactly a house, you know?
[17:24] * George Glass reaches the second floor.
[17:26] *** The second floor hoses George's bedroom, which is located on the left most wall, a living room-like area complete with couch, an ornate coffee table, and tv and radio ahead of them, and a storage area to the right. The sections of the floor are divvied up with curtains, and George's bedroom has curtains all around it.
[17:27] <Regina Lee> Oh my...
[17:27] <George Glass> Hey, so yeah, you can make yourself at home or whatever. I need to get something from my room.
[17:27] <Regina Lee> Alright.
[17:28] * Regina Lee smiles at George and takes a seat on the couch, placing her bag on the table.
[17:28] * George Glass nods and heads left, through the curtain, and into eir room.
[17:29] * George Glass clutches at eir arms, shivering a little. (Why am I so nervous?)
[17:29] * Regina Lee takes some items out of the bag and lines them up on the table.
[17:30] <Regina Lee> (( BBL - dinnertime ))
[18:01] * George Glass takes a look at eirself in the mirror that covers most of the wall of eir bedroom. Ey runs a hand through eir shaggy hair and buttons up eir shirt.
[18:02] <George Glass> Alright... no need to be so nervous. It's not like you've dreamt for months about having Regina in your home alone with you.
[18:02] <George Glass> ...
[18:02] * George Glass clenches eir fists and bites eir lip. (Don't run away.)
[18:03] * George Glass goes towards eir mirror, hand stretched out to it.
[18:03] * Regina Lee calls from the living room area, "Georgie? Are you alright?"
[18:03] * George Glass hesitates.
[18:04] * George Glass sighs and heads back through the curtain to eir living room.
[18:04] <George Glass> Yes, I'm fine...
[18:04] * George Glass trails off as ey sees Regina.
[18:05] * Regina Lee has taken off her blouse and set it on the back of the sofa, revealing her very well sculpted arms. The tightness of her white tank top shows off the muscles of her torso and her surprisingly nice bosom.
[18:05] <George Glass> (Oh my god.)
[18:06] * Regina Lee glances from beneath her bangs and sees George dumbstruck. She smiles inwardly and then looks up at him, patting the seat beside her on the couch. "Have a seat, Georgie, I have something I've wanted to give to you."
[18:08] * George Glass hesitates a moment and then takes the seat next to Regina, trying to keep some distance between them. (I should really get another chair or two up here if I'm going to have company over.)
[18:08] * Regina Lee busies herself with the items on the table.
[18:09] * George Glass clears eir throat and says, "You know, Regina..."
[18:09] * Regina Lee doesn't look up from the items, her voice light, "Hm~?"
[18:09] <George Glass> look good. Real good.
[18:09] * George Glass is fairly red in the face.
[18:10] <George Glass> I didn'
[18:10] * Regina Lee chuckles lightly as she leans back on the sofa, holding something in her hands, and she turns to George, responding with, "It's alright."
[18:11] <Regina Lee> I was an all-star Basketball player when I was in school and in college, though it's not what I majored in.
[18:11] <Regina Lee> I was actually quite good at most sports that I tried, really, but it just wasn't my calling.
[18:11] <Regina Lee> I love books far more.
[18:11] * George Glass nods, trying to keep eir eyes locked on Regina's and not her chest.
[18:12] <George Glass> I'm sorry, it gets pretty hot up here, doesn't it?
[18:12] <George Glass> All the heat from the glasswork and stuff...
[18:12] * Regina Lee smiles a slow smile.
[18:12] <Regina Lee> It's fine. It's why I took off my blouse, after all.
[18:12] <Regina Lee> Now here, take this.
[18:13] * Regina Lee hands George a small cup filled with an opaque pale purple liquid.
[18:13] <George Glass> Huh? What is this?
[18:13] * George Glass eyes the cup and then the little bottles and wrappers and things on the table.
[18:14] <Regina Lee> It's a special medicine that Maeko Nakano gave me to give for you.
[18:15] * George Glass sniffs the drink. It smells oddly like cherries and spring.
[18:15] <George Glass> Who?
[18:16] <Regina Lee> Sailor Telesto. She's the Saturn Satellite Senshi of Healing. She's the one who, with some minor help from that woman Sailor Sao, burned the poison out of you and healed you.
[18:16] <George Glass> Oh. Right, okay.
[18:16] <George Glass> But wait if she already healed me what do I need this for?
[18:18] <Regina Lee> She said it was to help with any lingering weak spots and help build you back up, or something.
[18:18] * Regina Lee shrugs.
[18:18] <Regina Lee> I figured, since we're such good friends, that I'd bring it over to you.
[18:18] * Regina Lee smiles happily at him.
[18:18] <George Glass> Wow, thanks Regina. You're such a great pal.
[18:18] * George Glass smiles back at her and chugs the drink since it was in such a small cup.
[18:19] * George Glass places the cup on the table.
[18:19] <George Glass> Wow, that tasted so strange. Most medicine tastes terrible, you know?
[18:19] * Regina Lee nods as she shifts closer to George, "Mmhm."
[18:20] <Regina Lee> Well, with someone with so much in healing as her, you'd think she'd be able to make a medicine that tastes better.
[18:20] * George Glass nods, sort of only half listening.
[18:20] <George Glass> Man, it really is hot up here isn't it?
[18:21] * George Glass 's body starts to slowly feel hot, a strange warmness in eir lower torso.
[18:21] <Regina Lee> It is, isn't it?
[18:21] <Regina Lee> You know, George, there's something I've been meaning to tell you...
[18:21] <George Glass> Y-yeah? What is it?
[18:21] <George Glass> (God, my body feels tingling. Must be the medicine.)
[18:22] <Regina Lee> I wanted to apologize for slapping you at your art exhibit.
[18:22] <Regina Lee> It was really uncalled for and I just..
[18:22] <George Glass> Hey no it's okay, I'm so over it, don't...don't worry about it..
[18:23] * Regina Lee moves closer so that her thigh is touching his and she looks up at him, her heart pounding in her chest.
[18:23] <Regina Lee> I..
[18:23] <George Glass> (Whoa..close...she's...she's so warm...)
[18:23] <Regina Lee> I love you, Georgie.
[18:23] <George Glass> (What)
[18:24] <Regina Lee> I have for a long while now.
[18:24] <George Glass> (Omg what)
[18:24] <Regina Lee> I'm sorry I never reciprocated your feelings before now. I..was just still hurting so much from Eryk dumping me.
[18:24] <Regina Lee> I didn't want to hurt you like he hurt me.
[18:25] * Regina Lee leans closer, her chest just mere inches away from George's.
[18:25] <Regina Lee> I..wanted to make sure that my feelings for you were real.
[18:25] * Regina Lee is so close to him, her face an inch away from his as she gazes up into his eyes.
[18:26] * George Glass is actually able to see through her hair and into her eyes. (Whoa she's got....hazel eyes? They're gorgeous..)
[18:27] * Regina Lee licks her lips, places her hand on his chest, and kisses him.
[18:27] * George Glass 's eyes widen as a roar rumbles through eir entire body, feeling eir with a carnal, unmanageable heat.
[18:29] * Regina Lee lets out a squeak as George grips her by the shoulders and pushes her down onto the couch, pinning her there. She's kissed so deeply she can barely breathe.
[18:29] <Regina Lee> (Ohmygod. Sailor Pandora was right. This lust potion really IS powerful stuff!!!!!)
[18:31] * George Glass breaks the kiss suddenly and starts to leave a trail of small, biting kisses down her neck and onto her collarbone, eir hands reaching up her sides beneath her tank top.
[18:31] * Regina Lee feels trapped beneath George, his legs between hers, getting lost in the whirlwind of emotions and heat filling her body.
[18:32] * George Glass lets out a grunt of annoyance as ey finds Regina's bra in the way. Ey suddenly picks her up and leans back, sitting up on the sofa with her on top of her, her chest at eir eyelevel. "Stupid bra.."
[18:33] * George Glass reaches behind Regina with one hand as eir lips reach hers, unclasping her bra and making to remove both it and her tank top.
[18:34] * Regina Lee is busy undoing George's shirt and rests her hands on George's chest.
[18:34] <Regina Lee> Ge..georgie..
[18:34] * George Glass pauses in lifting up her shirt, it's not even above her chest yet, and looks at her, annoyed.
[18:34] <George Glass> What
[18:35] * Regina Lee looks him in his eyes and asks in a quiet voice, "Can I remove this?"
[18:35] <George Glass> Tch, fine, whatever.
[18:35] * George Glass lets go of Regina for the moment, who topples backwards in a surprised huff.
[18:37] * George Glass throws off eir open button down shirt and reaches behind eir to unclasp the special binder that looks almost like a flat bra. Ey takes it off, revealing the perky womanly mounds in eir chest, and pounces on Regina once more.
[18:37] * Regina Lee squeals with delight and surprise!
[18:39] *** George and Regina made passionate love throughout the night. A first for George, and an unbelievable delight for Regina. Eventually, the lust potion was sweated out of George's system and she passed out on her bed, where their love making had taken them.
[18:40] *** At around 4:30 in the morning, Regina awakes to find the naked passed out George beside her and evidence of their torrential love making in the form of shattered interior decorations and ripped clothes.
[18:41] <Regina Lee> ('s so much better than Eryk could possibly ever be.)
[18:41] * Regina Lee slips out of the bed and gathers her belongings, putting her clothes back on as best as she can. There's a broad, almost sinister smile on her face as she gets her things in order.
[18:42] <Regina Lee> (I'll really need to give Sailor Pandora a very nice thank you gift one of these days.)
[18:43] * Regina Lee double checks to make sure she has everything; her clothes and the bottles and cup. She checks her phone and grins, seeing the pictures she had took of the two of them during the night.
[18:44] * Regina Lee checks in to view George's gorgeous sleeping form once again before she quietly makes her way downstairs and out of the Warehouse.
[18:44] *** Regina Lee [] has left #suburbansenshi3
[18:44] *** Time passes and George wakes up far later than usual, at 10:30 in the morning.
[18:44] * George Glass finds herself staring up at the ceiling.
[18:45] <George Glass> (I've had the...strangest dream...)
[18:45] * George Glass tries to sit up, feeling super groggy.
[18:45] <George Glass> (What in the world...?)
[18:46] * George Glass looks into the wall length mirror and sees the bite and scratch marks all over her neck, chest, sides, and back. Her room is a mess.
[18:46] * George Glass pales, her memories of last night rushing in like a truck.
[18:46] <George Glass> Oh my god... what did I do??
[18:46] * George Glass leans over her bed and vomits.

[20:05] <Yaijinden> So.
[20:06] <Yaijinden> In this moment, when I am cogent, I will speculate.
[20:06] <Yaijinden> The matter of Jedda Rain is beyond my grasp; for now, it shall be left to other hands.
[20:07] <Yaijinden> This leaves the other, who was once known as Darkness.
[20:07] <Yaijinden> First presumptions must be examined in such a case.
[20:09] <Yaijinden> One, we will hold -- for now -- that Darkness was telling the truth through Abe Hisoka, and that her desire is to be her own entity.
[20:10] <Yaijinden> Two, the methods she wishes to use in order to attain this state are yet unknown.
[20:10] <Yaijinden> Three, she has the capacity to gain influence over others, though the specific nature of that influence is not known.
[20:11] <Yaijinden> Does she intend violence against the cosmos? Plausibly.
[20:11] <Yaijinden> Does she intend this violence from malice?
[20:11] <Yaijinden> Or does she intend this violence from madness?
[20:12] <Yaijinden> There is a canny similarity between those who have fallen under her sway and her own initial state as an aspect of the Shaldra Darkness. Is the state these people exhibit a natural if directed rewiring of their own proclivities?
[20:13] <Yaijinden> Or is this an implantation of Darkness's own mind-state into others? She has known service without question or desire for freedom before, in darker times.
[20:14] <Yaijinden> And then, submersion into a depth beyond sleep.
[20:15] <Yaijinden> Her objectives may be accomplishable in a fashion that is not disharmonious with our own.
[20:16] <Yaijinden> To determine that, however, it is imperative to know her will.
[20:16] <Yaijinden> Not the will she uses to cognate, or communicate, but the deeper calling of the heart.
[20:17] <Yaijinden> The source of wishes.
[20:17] <Yaijinden> What do you find beautiful, I wonder?
[20:17] *** Yaijinden has quit IRC (To be great is to be misunderstood.)

[22:10] <The Actuary> Something more than Horror Terrors has returned.
[22:10] * The Actuary is subtly avoiding her father's gaze.
[22:10] * @Doctor Xadium narrows his eyes.
[22:11] <@Doctor Xadium> There's only one reason in the universe you'd ever be this hesitant to talk to me.
[22:11] <The Actuary> ....
[22:11] <The Actuary> (He guessed.)
[22:11] <@Doctor Xadium> You're pregnant?
[22:11] * The Actuary faceplants
[22:12] <The Actuary> ASS!
[22:12] <The Actuary> NO I'
[22:12] <The Actuary> I'M NOT PREGNANT!
[22:14] <@Doctor Xadium> Didn't think so, but it made a good icebreaker. Now what is it.
[22:14] <The Actuary> ...Mother is back.
[22:14] * The Actuary just says it
[22:14] * The Actuary just stares at him blankly, waiting for a reaction.
[22:15] <@Doctor Xadium> ...
[22:15] * @Doctor Xadium just sort of stands there, not really reacting.
[22:15] <@Doctor Xadium> Is she well?
[22:16] <The Actuary> Yes and no.
[22:17] <The Actuary> She's been torn asunder by... who knows what kind of forces and is in three different bodies. One of which is a reincarnation to a different species, one of which is dead in a Gigai, and one of which... may be Nightfall.
[22:17] <The Actuary> Well there's no "may be" about it. She is.
[22:17] <The Actuary> And Kusanagi has reppeared as well.
[22:18] * @Doctor Xadium still hasn't moved a millimeter.
[22:18] * The Actuary starts speaking faster, not sure how to fill the leaden silence.
[22:19] <The Actuary> Well, it's more than likely she's a very different person now... reconfiguration of personality, reincarnation, all that...
[22:23] * @Doctor Xadium exhales a held breath
[22:23] * @Doctor Xadium still doesn't answer.
[22:23] <The Actuary> Say something, damn it.
[22:24] <The Actuary> Please.
[22:24] * @Doctor Xadium gets up again and goes to sit across from her on Venus Sofa but misses it and lands on the floor.
[22:24] * @Doctor Xadium doesn't seem to register it.
[22:25] <@Doctor Xadium> I...
[22:25] <@Doctor Xadium> I'm glad she's alive.
[22:25] * @Doctor Xadium nods to himself.
[22:25] <@Doctor Xadium> I'm definitely glad of that.
[22:25] * @Doctor Xadium means that sincerely.
[22:26] * @Doctor Xadium still has this odd look in his eyes though.
[22:26] <The Actuary> I can imagine... how you must feel... Augustus came back to me after so many years--
[22:26] <@Doctor Xadium> --there's no coming back to me.
[22:27] * @Doctor Xadium says that very, very sadly and tiredly.
[22:28] <@Doctor Xadium> Your Augustus was your Augustus.
[22:28] <@Doctor Xadium> This Shaldra is not My Shaldra. I lost her on that day when the universe crumbled.
[22:29] <@Doctor Xadium> Lost her forever. And knew it then.
[22:29] <@Doctor Xadium> So even if this was an exact copy, no one is coming back to me.
[22:29] <The Actuary> ... What did happen that day.
[22:30] <@Doctor Xadium> I honestly don't know. I can't remember. It doesn't matter. The Universe shifted. We parted ways.
[22:30] <The Actuary> ...
[22:30] <@Doctor Xadium> I bear her no malice on that.
[22:33] <@Doctor Xadium> And I'd like to think that despite whatever occurred... somewhere, whatever friendship we had might have survived the death of that universe.
[22:33] <@Doctor Xadium> I mean yeah, I was wounded for a long, long time. I left, for a long, long time.
[22:33] <@Doctor Xadium> But that wasn't on her.
[22:34] <@Doctor Xadium> I chose to run away.
[22:38] * The Actuary has never heard of this
[22:39] * @Doctor Xadium shakes his head
[22:39] <@Doctor Xadium> It's the past. It doesn't matter.
[22:39] * @Doctor Xadium looks like he's trying to push past something.
[22:40] <The Actuary> Are you still hurt...?
[22:40] <@Doctor Xadium> No.
[22:40] <@Doctor Xadium> I just...
[22:40] * @Doctor Xadium doesn't know how to say what he wants to.
[22:41] <@Doctor Xadium> I honestly don't know how I'll react to seeing her again.
[22:41] <@Doctor Xadium> Would I be able to even look her in the eye?
[22:42] <@Doctor Xadium> But...
[22:42] <@Doctor Xadium> if she's become Nightfall then none of that matters.
[22:42] <@Doctor Xadium> I have to help her.
[22:42] <@Doctor Xadium> Even if she hates me, I have to help her.
[22:42] <The Actuary> Why would she hate you?
[22:43] * @Doctor Xadium shrugs, "I don't know. I don't know how things have changed."
[22:44] <@Doctor Xadium> Near the end... as far as I can remember... there was... uncertainty and confusion...
[22:45] <@Doctor Xadium> She drifted away bit by bit and
[22:45] * @Doctor Xadium holds his head in INTENSE PAIN and drops to the ground, grimacing
[22:45] * The Actuary rushes to him and shakes him by the shoulders "FATHER!"
[22:46] * @Doctor Xadium waves her off "I'm fine... I'm okay."
[22:47] <@Doctor Xadium> Just... some things are meant to stay buried. I get that sense of it.
[22:47] <@Doctor Xadium> And it's for the best.
[22:47] <@Doctor Xadium> Living in a dead past doesn't help anyone.
[22:48] <@Doctor Xadium> In this situation we have two options, my child: We either get dragged back into the past and all its pain, or we forge ahead to a new future. The Undiscovered Country.
[22:49] <The Actuary> ...That's a reference to death.
[22:49] <@Doctor Xadium> The past has to die so the future can be born. We have to bring this "nightfall" into a new and better future.
[22:50] <The Actuary> I think she was Darkness.
[22:51] * @Doctor Xadium sighs
[22:51] <@Doctor Xadium> Of all of Shaldra, Darkness was the most dangerous.
[22:51] <@Doctor Xadium> But she wasn't a bad person at all.
[22:54] <The Actuary> She said she wants to be an independent entity.
[22:54] * @Doctor Xadium frowns
[22:55] <@Doctor Xadium> She WAS. She re-fused with Shaldra later, but if all of this has happened, why isn't she just independent NOW?
[22:56] <@Doctor Xadium> There's go to be more to this situation.
[23:03] <The Actuary> Well, you're basing your conclusion on what you know of the way she used to be constructed. But this Dimensional Collision has changed everything fundamentally.
[23:03] <The Actuary> Perhaps she's not fully "Detached", or fully alive. If she was a Nedean Minion it could be that she needs a host?
[23:04] <@Doctor Xadium> The last time she was severed I gave her many of my lives, if I recall correctly.
[23:04] <@Doctor Xadium> That was how she was able to be her own person.
[23:05] <The Actuary> Your... regenerations?
[23:05] <@Doctor Xadium> Yes. I think I lost about 5 or so.
[23:06] <@Doctor Xadium> But that was ages and universes ago, I've got a fairly filled tank at the moment.
[23:19] <The Actuary> Hmm.
[23:21] <@Doctor Xadium> So what's your plan?
[23:21] <The Actuary> ...I haven't got one yet.
[23:22] <@Doctor Xadium> Noriko Xadium. That's not like you~ :P
[23:22] * The Actuary frowns
[23:22] <The Actuary> I am The Actuary.
[23:22] <The Actuary> You know what that means.
[23:23] <@Doctor Xadium> Yes, yes, do anything to achieve your goal, ruthless aggression, etc.
[23:23] <The Actuary> Traits that have served me well. Until this moment.
[23:24] <@Doctor Xadium> Because of all the people in the universe you're willing to sacrifice in order to achieve the greater good... there's only a precious few you could never bring yourself to harm.
[23:25] <@Doctor Xadium> One of them being your mother.
[23:27] <The Actuary> If this "Nightfall" were anyone else I would have forcibly solved the problem by just pinching off the affected section of the Multiverse and flattening it with Z-Neutrino energy.
[23:27] <@Doctor Xadium> Killing untold trillions :/
[23:27] <The Actuary> More than that.
[23:28] <@Doctor Xadium> Then we should be glad she's your mother then, shouldn't we. :P
[23:31] <The Actuary> I despise feeling this powerless!
[23:31] <@Doctor Xadium> What is the true measure of power, hmm?
[23:32] <@Doctor Xadium> Remember when Cardinal Moron attacked and you sealed off the Solar System and hunted him down like a dog?
[23:32] <The Actuary> Norom, and yes. I even cut off my own head to give myself an edge, if you recall.
[23:33] <@Doctor Xadium> Yes, so hopefully that regenerated brain of yours isn't good-for-nothing.
[23:33] <@Doctor Xadium> Force isn't just projecting power. It's what you bring to the table. You can't hurt your mother. Use your mind. You're the finest Stochastic Actuary Gallifrey has EVER produced.
[23:34] <The Actuary> Except I'm an Actuary who can't calculate because the universe is in constant flux :/
[23:34] <The Actuary> I'm not one for just rushing in.
[23:36] <@Doctor Xadium> If it is Darkness in there we have to understand why she's in the state she is.
[23:36] <The Actuary> Maybe you could reach her?
[23:36] <@Doctor Xadium> Heh, I very much doubt that.
[23:36] <@Doctor Xadium> Too much time, distance and upheaval.
[23:37] <@Doctor Xadium> Whatever we know... or think we know about her is almost certainly obsolete information.
[23:38] <The Actuary> So step one: Intelligence Gathering.
[23:38] <@Doctor Xadium> Yes.
[23:38] <@Doctor Xadium> Forget who she was. The question is: Who is she now?
[23:38] <The Actuary> ...
[23:39] <The Actuary> I would like to reassign Neminix to the Jedda Rain matter. Will you help me?
[23:39] <@Doctor Xadium> ...
[23:39] <@Doctor Xadium> I honestly don't know if I can face her.
[23:39] <@Doctor Xadium> Keep Intern by your side for now.
[23:40] <@Doctor Xadium> I don't know how reliable I'd be.
