[17:15] <> ♦ Haruka-tachi are getting some well-deserved rest after the recent spate of strange psychic attacks on them, protected by the psionic damping field from Dr. Xadium's TARDIS
[17:16] * The damping field crackles and hisses, then coruscates once in a flash of brillant blue, blazing and burning out as the TARDIS console erupts in a shower of sparks.
[17:16] * The Damping field has failed.

[17:29] * --=[ SpeedRcrX ]=-- smiles as she sees a sea-blue painted racer pull up to her left; the driver is Michiru, who turns her head to her and gives a thumbs up
[17:30] * --=[ SpeedRcrX ]=-- hears another racer pull up to her other side, it is purple. Hotaru is the driver. Hotaru turns her head to Haruka and smiles.
[17:31] * --=[ SpeedRcrX ]=-- smiles and refocuses on the finish line.
[17:40] * --=[ SpeedRcrX ]=-- sees a vision of a newspaper headline: "TEN'OU HARUKA WINS HER LAST RACE". She smiles at the picture of her, Michiru, Sets and Hotaru as a family.
[17:45] * --=[ SpeedRcrX ]=-- 's eyes widen as she suddenly sees the faces of the happy family in the photo turn to skulls.
[17:46] * There is a roaring noise from behind Haruka's car
[17:46] * --=[ SpeedRcrX ]=-- looks backwards, just in time to see a black racer zoom forward, SMASHING between her car and Hotaru's, SLAMMING Hotaru's car into the wall, where it EXPLODES!
[17:47] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> HOTAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRUUUUUUUUUUUU!!
[17:48] * --=[ SpeedRcrX ]=-- is suddenly out of her body, seeing Michiru giving her the thumbs up just as her car veers to the right, clipping Michiru's car, the two vehicles going up in a fireball.
[17:48] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> No.... No...... NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!
[17:52] * --=[ SpeedRcrX ]=-- sees the headline on the paper change to "TEN'OU HARUKA KILLED IN HER LAST RACE, FAMILY DIES IN RACEWAY TRAGEDY"

[17:59] * Mdm_Maestro plays more and more passionately, putting her very soul into the music
[17:59] * Generic members of the audience stand, turn and begin to walk away.
[18:00] * Mdm_Maestro sees this, but does not care-- Haruka-tachi are still there.
[18:01] * Mdm_Maestro plays harder and harder-- and then her violin screeches to a halt
[18:02] * --=[ SpeedRcrX ]=-- is leaned over with a woman obscured in shadow, groping and kissing her passionately
[18:02] <Mdm_Maestro> H-- Haruka
[18:04] * --=[ SpeedRcrX ]=-- smiles and whispers to the woman "Don't worry, Michiru will NEVER find out about us. She's clueless. Got no street smarts."
[18:04] * Mdm_Maestro drops her violin
[18:04] * C'est_la_V stands up and hands Michiru a knife
[18:05] * Mdm_Maestro nods and walks over to Haruka, who is passionately embracing the strangely shadowed woman
[18:05] <FireFly_9> Michiru-momma, didn't you know this about her?
[18:06] <C'est_la_V> She always goes behind your butt...
[18:06] <The Catman> She loves you... for your bank account.
[18:07] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> (to the woman) Michi is so naiive... She thinks she leads me around by the nose, but I'm the one.
[18:07] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> I get what I want from her at night, and in the day... I get all the play.
[18:07] <Mdm_Maestro> HARUKA! (raises the knife)
[18:08] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> (kissing, soft murmuring noises)
[18:08] <Mdm_Maestro> HARUKA, I LOVE YOU!! (stabs Haruka in the back again anfd again)
[18:08] * --=[ SpeedRcrX ]=-- coughs up blood, sputters, and dies
[18:09] * Mdm_Maestro continues to stab "I love you... I love you... I love you..."
[18:09] <FireFly_9> Love is pain.
[18:09] <C'est_la_V> Pain is love.
[18:09] <The Catman> Embrace the nightmare of Love's pain.
[18:10] <Mdm_Maestro> Don;t run away!! (stabs the corpse)
[18:10] * Mdm_Maestro stabs Minako, Artemis and Hotaru to death
[18:11] <Mdm_Maestro> I love you all... None of you... will ever leave me... again...
[18:11] * Mdm_Maestro stands amidst the corpses and then drives the knife into her heart, and collapses. "Now we will be together.... forever."
[18:12] * Mdm_Maestro wakes up with blood in her mouth, having bit her lip in her sleep.
[18:12] * @spiritflame changes topic to `Hotaru Dream`
[18:13] * FireFly_9 stands alone in the void
[18:16] <FireFly_9> Hello? (voice echoes)
[18:17] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Abomination.
[18:18] <Mdm_Maestro> Dangerous.
[18:18] <chronos.typhoon.2k4> You are a threat to us.
[18:18] <FireFly_9> No I'm not! It's not my fault that I have this power!
[18:20] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> You'll kill us all, you b[BLEEP]ch
[18:20] <Mdm_Maestro> For us to live, you must die
[18:20] <chronos.typhoon.2k4> You must die.
[18:21] <FireFly_9> But you raised me! As your own child!
[18:22] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Fool
[18:22] <Mdm_Maestro> Why do you think we raised you?
[18:22] <chronos.typhoon.2k4> Took you from your father?
[18:23] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> "Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer." (brandishes the space sword)
[18:25] <FireFly_9> No....
[18:26] <Mdm_Maestro> We were always watching you, monitoring your progress (Masses energy around her fist)
[18:26] <FireFly_9> This can't be...
[18:27] <chronos.typhoon.2k4> You're the cause of our suffering...
[18:27] <FireFly_9> We overcame this years ago! Made peace! This is a Lie! a LIE!
[18:27] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Goodbye, 'Taru-chan (attacks)

[18:37] <GERMATOID> ...
[18:37] <Kaolinite VIII> Left foot yellow.
[18:38] * GERMATOID SPREADS HIS LEFT LEG, TRYING TO GET HIS FOOT ONTO YELLOW. HE SLIPS UNDER KAOLINITE A BIT MORE.

[18:39] <Kaolinite VIII> Hakase... I'm not her.
[18:42] * GERMATOID SEES A SILHOUETTED FIGURE STANDING IN THE DOORWAY, STANDING NEXT TO A SILHOUETTED CHILD.
[18:44] * GERMATOID CLUTCHES KAOLINITE AND PULLS HER DOWN ONTO THE GROUND WITH HIM, BUT HIS EYES STAY FOCUSED ON THE TWO FIGURES.

[18:48] * Kaolinite VIII begins to remove her jacket
[18:49] <Kaolinite VIII> Forget them... even if your daughter hates you, and you can never have the one woman you truly loved.... even if your life is totally empty... not worth living....
[18:49] * GERMATOID PONDERS THIS
[18:49] * Kaolinite VIII pulls a dagger from her cleavage and hands it to him
[18:51] <Kaolinite VIII> Here. The thing that has lurked at the back of your mind ever since the day you tried to clone her and got me instead. The sick truth of your own inability to rescue that what you loved the most.
[18:52] * GERMATOID LOOKS AT THE DAGGER, AND FEELS THE FAMILIAR FEELING.
[18:53] <Kaolinite VIII> Yes. Plunge it in, end your sorrows.
[18:54] * GERMATOID TAKES THE DAGGER, AND TOSSES IT ASIDE, PULLING KAOLINITE TO HIM AND ROLLING OVER, PRESSING HER TO THE MAT
[18:54] <Kaolinite VIII> ...?!

[19:08] * chronos.typhoon.2k4 stands at the time gate, chained to it, watching as Neo Queen Serenity and King Endymion embrace in front of her passionately, indecently.
[19:08] <Queen Serenity> You'll never leave my side, Setsuna.
[19:08] * Queen Serenity feels Endymion's face.
[19:09] <Queen Serenity> As long as the blood of time flows theough your veins I own you. Your duty demands it.
[19:09] * chronos.typhoon.2k4 watches weakly as Serenity kisses Endymion passionately.
[19:10] <Queen Serenity> You can project yourself in time all you want. But I... (strokes setsuna's face) will always.... (lifts her chin up and SQUEEZES HARD) own you...
[19:11] <Queen Serenity> My kingdom may have fallen... but this door will always be mine... and you belong to the door, daughter of Chronos.

[19:16] * C'est_la_V wakes up from her slumber in bed. The space next to her is empty.
[19:16] * C'est_la_V rubs her eyes "X-chan?"
[19:17] * C'est_la_V notes that the space next to her is gone. Her bed is now a single.
[19:17] * C'est_la_V looks at her hand. There is no wedding ring.
[19:18] * C'est_la_V feels something in her hair. her bow is gone.
[19:19] * C'est_la_V sees that the picture of herself and Xadium on the nightstand is gone, replaced by one of her with Artemis.
[19:19] * C'est_la_V sees a collar next to the picture. Somehow she knows it is Artemis'-- the last thing she has of his.
[19:20] * C'est_la_V goes over to her computer
[19:20] * C'est_la_V reads some email
[19:21] <C'est_la_V> "Minako-chan: I did some checking, but I can't find anything on Asai-kun. Or Higashi-san, or Xadium-san. Sorry, Ami-chan."
[19:22] * C'est_la_V sees a letter on her dresser. "I'm sorry, I have to go to the mountains to train. -- Makoto"
[19:22] * C'est_la_V notes it was dated years ago. Sees a faded photo of her and Mako-chan.
[19:22] <C'est_la_V> All gone...
[19:23] * C'est_la_V feels the crushing weight of loneliness as she sits on the edge of her bed. She tries to email Ami again.
[19:23] <C'est_la_V> what do you mean "user not found?!"
[19:23] * C'est_la_V hits the computer
[19:24] * C'est_la_V decides to go outside
[19:25] * C'est_la_V walks through the crowd. No one recognizes her.
[19:25] * C'est_la_V suddenly sees X-chan and Hotaru-chan talking in the crowd
[19:25] * C'est_la_V joyfully runs up to them
[19:26] * C'est_la_V freezes when she hears them talking
[19:26] <@Dr_Xadium> She was such an annoying ditz. Never understood anything I told her, always mangled everything she said. And she always wanted to be told how beautiful she was. Damn, it was tiring.
[19:27] <@Dr_Xadium> I'm so glad I decided to get the hell out of there.
[19:27] <C'est_la_V> Masaka...
[19:27] <FireFly_9> She clung to me like a lost puppy, always wanting to do somethign frivoulous and stupid.
[19:28] <FireFly_9> I have better things to do with my time than see the latest teenybopper film, or go shopping for expensive, overpriced pieces of designer garbage.
[19:29] <C'est_la_V> You guys... I'm not like that... I'm not that shallow... wait...
[19:30] <@Dr_Xadium> And she had the nerve to call herself the "Goddess of Love". Bah, she might have had some "skill", but she was nothing special.
[19:30] * C'est_la_V drops to the ground, crying.
[19:31] <FireFly_9> Heh. Bimbos like that are a dime a dozen.
[19:31] <@Dr_Xadium> She meant nothing to me.
[19:31] * C'est_la_V slams her fists on the ground, then realizes that the other people in the crowd are all her friends, and they are laughing at her
[19:32] <C'est_la_V> Stop laughing!! Why are you all laughing at me?!
[19:32] <.`~SugaBB_2999~`.> y wuld we laff at u?
[19:32] <Mdm_Maestro> We don't even know who you are
[19:32] <C'est_la_V> What?? Don;t you remember me?
[19:33] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Oh yeah I might have known a girl named Minako. She was nothing special, though. (walks off)
[19:33] <chronos.typhoon.2k4> I talked to her a few times, but I don't feel the need to speak to her again. (leaves)
[19:34] <@Dr_Xadium> She wasn't important, just someone I used to my benefit. (leaves)
[19:34] <FireFly_9> Good for a laugh or two. (walks away)
[19:34] * C'est_la_V is all alone.
[19:35] <C'est_la_V> WHY?! AT LEAST TELL ME WHY YOU PRETENDED TO BE MY FREINDS AND THEN LEFT!! AM I SO WORTHLESS?!
[19:35] * C'est_la_V is met with silence. The rain starts and drenches her.
[19:35] * Sailor Venus wakes up sobbing.
[19:35] * @Dr_Xadium rolls over "Mina, are you all right?"
[19:36] * Sailor Venus looks at him sadly. "Just a bad dream..." Can't shake off what she heard him say in the dream. "Did you have a dream?"
[19:37] <@Dr_Xadium> No. (Remembers a horrible dream of Mina dying in a horrible fire while he is unable to help)
[19:37] <Sailor Venus> Lucky You.
[19:38] <@Dr_Xadium> Minako... you're still transformed? Even Hotaru dropped her transformation. You've been like this for days.
[19:38] <Sailor Venus> How can you tell? I changed my clothes.
[19:39] <@Dr_Xadium> You're my wife... I can tell. This isn't healthy.
[19:39] * @Dr_Xadium notes some flecks of gold in Mina's crystal blue eyes, but says nothing.
[19:39] <Sailor Venus> (somewhat coldly) Don't worry. I can handle it.

[19:40] <// J_Daito //> So it is you.
[19:40] <A Figure> Yes. What will you.
[19:40] <// J_Daito //> ...
[19:41] <A Figure> If you kill me, you know what will happen.
[19:41] <// J_Daito //> What makes you think I care.
[19:41] <A Figure> I see your mind.
[19:41] <// J_Daito //> So?
[19:41] <A Figure> It knows what even you do not know, consciously.
[19:42] <// J_Daito //> The others might find you impressive, but I don't. To me you're just a clumsy toy. A puppet.
[19:42] <A Figure> Heh. Your opinion means nothing to me.
[19:42] <// J_Daito //> Likewise.
[19:43] <A Figure> This is your chance, Jedite. What will you do.
[19:43] * // J_Daito // turns his back on the figure, then spins around to launch an attack, but is frozen.
[19:43] <A Figure> Too slow, as always. Heh.
[19:43] * A Figure disappears.
