<C�st_la_V> That's why she ran off like a balding frog!!
<--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> "Scalded Dog"

welcome to #suburbansenshi

[16:44] <Thrash> [5] come back kitty!
[16:44] * Thrash [5] runs after it
[17:16] * Thrash [5] becomes a legend among the children of Gallifrey....Thrash...the kitty protector
[22:19] * Elsewhere on Gallifrey, even as some of the Planetary defense barriers start to shimmer and flicker back into life, a lone shuttlepod makes its way back to the planet. Formerly gold and gaudy, and adorned with the sigilia of the High House of Rassilon, it is now burnt, damaged and almost-shattered, a parodic wreck of its former self. The ship lands on the edge of the desert, with only Rassilon himself and two fairly injured members of the High Council limping out of it.
[22:20] * Rassilon himself is bent but not bowed; a look of anger mixed with pride fills his eyes, even as he casts a glnace back to the shuttle, where the other members of the High Council whom the Doctor had exiled now lay dead, nothing more than formless ashes of protomatter.
[22:23] * For while he had suffered a minor defeat at the hands of The Fourth, and his fellows had paid a high price for raising that which had preferred its sleep, his [metaphorical] child was now active, and once again reaching the heights of his power. Whoever had damaged Gallifrey would certainly never be able to do so again. The Time Lords - not the milquetoast children, but the REAL Time Lords, the ones HE had given rise to, would soon stridde across Gallifrey once more...
[22:24] * Rassilon grinned, succumbing to a fatal injury, and then regenerating in a burst of light to the form he had worn during the Last Great Time War ((Timothy Dalton!))
[22:25] <@> Standing erect, he grinned. The Fourth had been something of an ungrateful son... but he was Rassilon, the true and only Lord of Gallifrey, and even The Fourth would bend the knee to him. This was his world and he would not be denied. After all, Billions of years of civilisation were at his back. The civilisation he had made.
[22:26] * ^
[22:30] * From Elsewhere, The Fourth looked down upon Gallifrey, using his pan-dimensional senses of perception to see the whole planet at once, inside and out, sensing all the beings, all the structures, the rivers of time that washed across the planet in ways unique to all the rest of creation. The wounds she had suffered were grave, but ultimately fleeting. The damage done by the one called "Master" was insignificant in the great scheme of the larger nexus. What, however, was not insgnificant was the opportunity the Master had unwittingly created. A placid stasis had been broken, an established order decapitated.
[22:33] * And now, the vacuum created was, as always, seeking to end itself by drawing together strands from all of space and time... Rassilon, The Pythia, The Doctor, The Master, the Sisters of Karn, the Celestial Intervention Agency, the Time Lords of Old and Now...even he himself, all were, like strands in a spiderweb, drawing together, inexorably towards collapse. Towards Singularity. Towards Destruction.
[22:35] * The Fouth looked across the world, and felt, in the void of Space, a Borg Planet-Killer that had somehow survived the Dark ages of the End and was making its way towards Gallifrey, still a billion miles out. With a mere thought, he sent the cube spinning into a Black Star. No one would be allowed to interfere.
[22:39] * His gaze then flicked to the crater at Mt. Plutarch, where a small group was tryign to render medical aid to some of the Shobogans who had had their homes buried in the blast. The domiciles had been easily transported back atop the new, glassy slopes, but there were still some missing. He saw three Sisters of the flame head for the crater- saw them reach out with their formidable, yet weak minds to seek out survivors._Contact_. Investigation. Trap. As he watched them fall into the crater, into the Bowels of the planet, he knew. It had begun.
[22:44] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte and Sisters Okrana and Milna crash into the black, glassy caverns under Mount Plutarch
[22:45] * Milna is dead, her neck broken. Okrana is barely better off but Paisley uses what little Elixir she has to keep her alive. Paisley, for her part, thanks to her training with Cressida and the others, used Advanced Armamanet Haki to weather the fall.
[22:46] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte is not as good at it as Cressida, however, and had a badly dislocated arm she had to hove back in place.
[22:47] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte tries to help Okrana more, but then the cavern rumbles and a chasm opens, causing Paisley to fall again...
[22:49] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte takes a few minutes to come back to consciousness and has no Earthly (Gallifreyanly?) idea where she is.
[22:50] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte can see nothing. It's pitch black, and the silence is so profound she can hear her blood rushing through her ears almost like a waterfall.
[22:50] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> (Well, f[BLEEP]k.)
[22:51] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte waits for eyes to adjust, but they can't. There is literally no light.
[22:51] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Tch.
[22:51] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte raises one hand and snaps her fingers, lighting a flame above them.
[22:52] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte still can't see anything beyond her immediate vicinity.
[22:53] * Suddenly, a deep voice. Matronly, yet stern. Ancient beyond time. Deep in her mind. "Forward, child of Earth, Daughter of Karn. Forward."
[22:54] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte cautiously moves forward, checking the ground with her flame to see if there's any other crevasses.
[22:54] * "Your fears are so... ephemeral."
[22:55] * The next second, everything is blinding, formless white.
[22:55] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte 's eyes quickly adjust, but now it's just a white void.
[22:55] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> The... cave?
[22:56] * "Cave? Void? Light? Dark? Time? Space?"
[22:57] * the world around Paisley flips rappidly, nauseatingly from white to black and back again. Up becomes down become sideways. Inside becomes out. Paisley is looking down upon herself watching herself watching herself watching herself ad infinitum. Then back to White void.
[22:57] * "Keep moving forward."
[22:57] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> What... are you?
[22:58] * "Humans. Always so desperate to Classify. To Comprehend."
[22:58] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I do like to understand things, yeah.
[22:58] * "Ahh yes. The Scholar who never quite graduated."
[22:59] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte is surprised and then ashamed for being surprised.
[23:00] * "Yes, child. I see through you. And Through you. We are known to each other, after a fashion."
[23:00] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte>'re the Pythia, aren;t you?
[23:00] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ...Or what remains of her?
[23:01] * "Not Quite."
[23:01] * "Suffice to say even The Pythia learned her magicks somewhere."
[23:02] * "The same place the Gods of Time took their first steps as well."
[23:02] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ...
[23:03] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> This place...
[23:03] * "Is no-place. Is no-time. IS Before, is After. All the adjectives, and every one of the nouns."
[23:04] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ...It's no accident I'm here, is it.
[23:04] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte has a somewhat suspicious look on her face.
[23:05] * "Don't be so egotistical, child. Circumstance happened to place you in my path. There are billions above who could have sufficed."
[23:05] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ...Way to make a girl feel special :P
[23:06] * "Everyone is special. And No one is special. That's the beauty of it."
[23:06] * Everything is as it should be. Even as it 'breaks.'
[23:07] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Well, if we're chatting, may I ask if you can get me out of here?
[23:07] * "That is your clever way of trying to see if I hav a purpose for you."
[23:07] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> That's about it, yeah. I have friends up there who are hurt.
[23:08] * "I have already sent them back to the Capitol. None will find you here until the time is right."
[23:08] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> So you do have business with me :P
[23:10] * "Well, it could have been the milkman, but as I said it happened to be you. It happened to be you, the The five hundred and eighth Pythia in the line of Gallifrey."
[23:10] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ...The what
[23:10] * "Oh, those are words only knwon to your soul. Oh well. Forget them for now."
[23:11] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> So you do have business with me :P
[23:11] * "Well, it could have been the milkman, but it was you, the ever-curious Oxofrd Dropout who walks between two worlds."
[23:12] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Do you have a name?
[23:13] * "The Kingmaker gave me a name once, but it was meaningless. I am beyond such conceptual containers."
[23:13] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Well we limited humans do well when we can call something names.
[23:14] * "I do not like your suggesion of 'Bloody difficult void-head' It is quite rude."
[23:14] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I didn't say it, mind you.
[23:14] * "Here there is no difference. The Word is The Mind is The Word"
[23:15] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte understands and wills herself a nice chair and sits in it.
[23:15] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ...that took no effort at all.
[23:15] * "Such is this 'place'".
[23:16] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte wills up some tea, and offers a cup to Void-chan
[23:16] * the tea int he cup she offers vanishes
[23:17] * "It is...'horrible?' Is that the conceptualizaton?"
[23:17] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Oi I make EXCELLENT tea.
[23:17] * "Yes, yes. It is 'horrible'."
[23:17] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte grumbles.
[23:18] * "Let us to business then, Paisley Priscilla Pythia Peinforte."
[23:18] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Yes?
[23:21] * "Here, [if we can be bound by such a narrow concept] is is before the Dawn, before the First Ones clawed through the skin of the dying firmament to find renewal and transdformation in the New. Here too, is the End, where the walls of 'reality' erode towards maximal entropy, as the Immortal and the Undefeatable prepare to consummate an electric union that will shatter the Void and give birth to the Next. Here too, now, is every-when in between. "
[23:22] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> (Why do I have this mental image of Jack Harkness and getting it on and Chibiusa and Yaijinden trying to get out of range. )
[23:23] * "Because that, in some real sense, is twenty minutes into the future. Or twenty centuries. It all depends on when you choose to Be."
[23:24] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> So this really is a place beyond--
[23:24] * "Just call it Beyond to keep things simple."
[23:24] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Beyond. Right.
[23:25] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> So...
[23:25] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Given this Omniscient perspective of yours--
[23:25] * "No, child. There is no Predestiny."
[23:27] * "The very concept is anathema to the principle of Life. Every being has the capacity to rock the foundations of the firmament in new, unforeseen ways. You need not be the Scion of Venus at the Tairon Gate. Even 'Predestination Paradoxes' are merely whirlpools in a chaotic sea."
[23:28] * "Which brings us to this moment. Everyone, really."
[23:28] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Oh?
[23:30] * "The universe is born from its own death. Again and again and again. Expansion, Decay, Explosion. Reformation. Renewal. And on and On, a helical ourobourous that never ends.
[23:31] * "But that's not what we face here. There is no Predestiny. Only moments that can be shaped, like clay. Moments that form the foundation of what you mostly linear beings call a future."
[23:32] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> 'PV "And, being linear as you are (at least in this life, in this form, in this illusory instant), you're all rather attached to a certain Order of things."
[23:32] * ^
[23:32] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Oi, stop talking throughme when I'm right here, it's annoying.
[23:33] * "The sense of self erodes quickly here. It's an illusion anyway, so best not to worry about it. "
[23:33] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> D: I rather like being me.
[23:34] * "Oh really? You loathe yourself and the fact you enjoy the acceptance of another. You have never come to peace wiit being in your own skin."
[23:34] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> .................
[23:34] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I.. still... like being... me.
[23:35] * "Was that too incisive? You really need to work out your anxieties, child."
[23:35] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ....
[23:35] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Look can we get back to that bit about the "Certain Order of things."
[23:36] * "Running away from yourself won't help. But as you like."
[23:38] * "The Egg has been split. The Secrets of the Dark Time are within Reach to anyone bold enough to Claim them. Rassilon, who once held them, wants them back to make a new Time Lord Empire. His descendants-- Kelliphan and the like, want to find and covet them for their own power across the Universe. The Fourth and his Successor will battle for the right ot walk across the stars as Gods. "
[23:38] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ...So basically whoever gets the Iron Throne of Westeros wins?
[23:39] * "They get to shape the clay."
[23:39] * "The Time of Chaos is upon us once again."
[23:39] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> So what does this have to do with me?
[23:40] * "Not everyone has the same sculpture in mind. Do you think you, your friends, and some of the things you all have allowed to happen would be permitted by a Rassilon at the height of his power?
[23:40] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ...
[23:41] * "As they might say on your homeworld 'This universe ain't big enough for the two of us.'
[23:41] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Again, what does this have to do with me
[23:42] * "You have a headstart. Will you play?"
[23:42] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ...Play?
[23:42] * "Will you join the contest?"
[23:42] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> To do what exactly?
[23:43] * "What is the point of most of the games on your world? To Win"
[23:43] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ....
[23:43] * "If a Time Lord, any Time Lord were to win, it would be disaster."
[23:44] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte mentally objects, thiking of sweet, gentle Intern.
[23:44] * "Even she would be driven to corruption in the name of doing good. It is the fatal flaw of the culture,"
[23:44] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> No.
[23:44] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> She's ethical.
[23:44] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Sometimes to a fault.
[23:45] * "Aren't you as well? Except there's a part of you you fear? That part that you fear will lay waste to your enemies if your loved ones were harmed?"
[23:46] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ...I really don't like this open access you have to my psyche.
[23:47] * "You worry over it every day. Someone like The Intern also has that fear... but she suppresses it. She never faces it. And if she were suddenly pushed to the Edge of Absolute Fear... "
[23:47] * "You know what others like Xadium have done. And what it's cost them."
[23:47] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ALL RIGHT
[23:47] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte almost shakes in Anger
[23:48] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> All right I understand.
[23:48] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> You're saying that because I'ma lways on guard against myself I might be able to handle this .. . whatever it is theu're looking for better than them.
[23:49] * "Better? Who knows. But if you play, you have the potential of winning, and keeping others from winning."
[23:50] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I feel like for all the talk of "it could be the milkman" you really did pick me.
[23:50] * "Because you're broken."
[23:50] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ....
[23:51] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte chuckles darkly to herself, sadly.
[23:51] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Yeah. I get it.
[23:51] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> All right. I'm in.
[23:51] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> What happens now.
[23:52] * "As I said, you have a head-start. You got 'here' before the others. What you do next, is up to you."
[23:52] * Void-chan does not speak again, leaving Paisley to ponder her next move in the shimmering white void.
[22:22] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte sits in the white void, thinking to herself. There's no indication of what she should do next.
[22:22] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> This isn't my planet, and what mythology I do know from the Sisters is incomplete because I'm not in the innermost circle.
[22:24] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> This isn't my planet.
[22:24] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> This isn't my history or my mythos.
[22:24] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte frowns deeply.
[22:25] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> If I use my "get out of jail free card" here... I risk having no way out at all, and I put him in danger.
[22:25] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ..but I get the sense we're all in danger anyway.
[22:27] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte closes her eyes and outstretches an arm, and then thrusts it into the center of her chest, pulling out something via her soul.
[22:27] *** Exeter L. Wakefield [] has joined #suburbansenshi
[22:27] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Exeter L. Wakefield
[22:27] * Exeter L. Wakefield forms as if from a mist
[22:28] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Where the hell were you. I couldn't even sense you!
[22:28] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte punches him in the shoulder hard.
[22:29] <Exeter L. Wakefield> ...Facing down my past. Let's just put it that way. Everything is going wron--
[22:29] * Exeter L. Wakefield looks at the void surrounding them askance
[22:29] * Exeter L. Wakefield shivers down to the bone
[22:29] <Exeter L. Wakefield> ...Where the hell are we. This feels incredibly wrong.
[22:30] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Someplace under-- no, someplace connected to Mount Plutarch.
[22:31] <Exeter L. Wakefield> Calling this a "place" is wrong.
[22:31] * Exeter L. Wakefield shivers
[22:31] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> all right?
[22:31] <Exeter L. Wakefield> I don't feel connected to Time at all. It's like it's hard to breathe.
[22:32] <Exeter L. Wakefield> I feel like there are walls closing in
[22:32] <Exeter L. Wakefield> I can't put my finger on it it's just so cold here and why is it so disconnected and I can't Ican't I CAN'T
[22:32] * Exeter L. Wakefield drops to the "ground" and curls up in a ball
[22:33] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte backs up a step, aghast at the fact that she's brought the one she loves to somewhere that's hurting him
[22:34] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ...You're a Time Lord, aren't you? Isn't is easy for you to see the structure of multiple dimensions and things like that?
[22:34] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte is babbling because she's not sure what to do
[22:34] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Forgive me, love~
[22:35] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte Hauls him up with one hand and SLAPS HIM
[22:35] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> - FOCUS -
[22:35] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ON MY VOICE. JUST MY VOICE. NOTING ELSE.
[22:36] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Your damn Time Brain just can't parse being out of time can it ><
[22:37] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte reaches across to hsi mind over their connexion and mentally "grips" it to force him to synch his thoughts with hers
[22:38] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Come on now. Lean on me. Let my biorythms be your clock. My heartbeat. The flow of the blood in my veins. Those things have structure.
[22:39] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte grins
[22:39] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Then join me in the delusion.
[22:40] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> _ Cogito, ergo sum ego, et vos igitur quoque_.
[22:40] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte FORCES him to believe himself stabilized by her self-stability
[22:41] * Exeter L. Wakefield calms, basically grounding himself wholly in Paisley's existence.
[22:41] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> That's right. You can literally say I'm your universe and mean it.
[22:41] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte laughs
[22:42] * Exeter L. Wakefield looks pale and haggard, and not at all amused
[22:43] <Exeter L. Wakefield> I... I've looked into the face of Old Ones and been able to comprehend the contours of their alien dimensionality, but not this... why not this...
[22:44] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> If I had to guess, it's because this realm predates your Time Lord adaptation to the physical laws of reality?
[22:44] <Exeter L. Wakefield> why are you fine?
[22:44] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte chuckles and gestures to her curves. "Just born that way~"
[22:44] <Exeter L. Wakefield> Be serious :P
[22:45] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Oh good, you'e well enough to talk back.
[22:45] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Ex, I'm used to being in the realm of Mind and Soul.
[22:45] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> The two most ineffable and intangible realms there are. Where Time and Space are just irrelevancies.
[22:46] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Put simply, I don't need a firmament to stand in.
[22:46] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> (Doesn't mean I like it, mind you.)
[22:47] * Exeter L. Wakefield grips her arm as a drowning man seeks a life preserver.
[22:47] <Exeter L. Wakefield> Why did you bring me here, Paise...
[22:47] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I was hoping you knew something about this place, about the Old Time. I didn't expect you were going to absolutely lose your s[BLEEP]t.
[22:48] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> From what I understand we're supposed to be seeking something that basically everyone bloody wants that will allow the ability to shape reality. And I can't let a Time Lord get it first.
[22:49] <Exeter L. Wakefield> ...fill me in on everything
[22:49] * Exeter L. Wakefield closes his eyes and just mixes his mind with hers as they'd done so many times before, and quickly experiences her conversation with "void-chan".
[22:49] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> You full now~? XD
[22:50] <Exeter L. Wakefield> You're horrible :P
[22:50] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> We're both horrible. and don;t you pretend otherwise :P
[22:50] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> But yes, do you grok?
[22:51] <Exeter L. Wakefield> Yes.
[22:51] * Exeter L. Wakefield doesn't stop gripping her arm. If she wasn't strong, it would have hurt quite a bit.
[22:51] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Christ, you are out of sorts. That's good.
[22:52] <Exeter L. Wakefield> ...Good?
[22:52] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> It means this place is hell on Time Lords.
[22:52] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Which means I have a,,,
[22:52] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte breaks out laughing
[22:52] <Exeter L. Wakefield> What
[22:53] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> "Head" start. Oh, Void-chan that was a a_horrible_ pun.
[22:53] * Exeter L. Wakefield groans
[22:53] <Exeter L. Wakefield> Hell on Time Lords...
[22:53] * Exeter L. Wakefield forces himself to think
[22:53] <Exeter L. Wakefield> Hell...
[22:54] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> We in Time Lord Hell?
[22:54] * Exeter L. Wakefield holds his hand up, a chain of thoughts forming
[22:54] <Exeter L. Wakefield> Hell... hell fire... fire... flames... smelting... crucible...
[22:54] <Exeter L. Wakefield> ... a place of forging the mind and spirit?
[22:55] * Exeter L. Wakefield seems ot be struggling to evoke a concept
[22:55] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte , being connected to him at the deepest level, is easily abl to pick up the threa do fhis thought and add her own momentum to it
[22:57] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ...the Seeker myust walk the Desert of the soul and seek the Mystical Jaguar who will lead them towards self-realisation...
[22:58] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> This is like a jungle for beings like you.
[22:58] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> A place where you're stripped down, and rebuilt cognitively.
[22:59] <Exeter L. Wakefield> Ddin;t you and I already take this trip :P
[22:59] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Mmm... yes and no.
[22:59] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> There I was your guide and we helped each other to discover our "truths"
[22:59] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte coughs
[22:59] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> But
[23:00] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> That was just the first step and it was Jourbney just to get you back into the land of the living.
[23:00] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> This place...
[23:00] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte woluld wrap her arms around herself but Exeter still had one firmly
[23:01] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> This place... seems like it was designed to take Gallifreyans and turn them into something more.
[23:01] * Exeter L. Wakefield listens expectantly
[23:01] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte kseps slotting together the evidence in her mind
[23:02] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> But here, you, a Time Lord, who is supposed to be intimitely connected to the ebbs and flows of the universe and higher dimensions and for whom staring into the eyes of Yog-Shohoth should be child's play...
[23:03] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> You're completely like a fish out of water...
[23:03] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> This place can't be a Forge that turns Gallifreyans to Time Lords, because in theory then you should handle this place like it was nothing.
[23:03] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Because you already have passed the test...
[23:04] * Exeter L. Wakefield doesn't look in command of anything right now.
[23:04] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I'm missing something...
[23:07] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte flashes back to a conversation she had had with Exeter back before he had risen...
[23:07] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> [11:16] <Old Man> ♦ What if the rassilon imprimatur actually acts as a limiter...
[23:08] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte 's mental wheels are spinning faster now
[23:09] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> [11:09] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ♦ Just myths and legends I'm privvy to. I don't know the whole story, but there was a time when your people were WAY more dangerous on an individual level then they are now. Back when you all still had the comparible mental mastery of a Sister of the Flame and your technological advancements.
[23:09] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ...You can't pass the test as you are now.
[23:10] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> You physically Can NOT.
[23:10] <Exeter L. Wakefield> !
[23:10] * Exeter L. Wakefield releases her arm, shocked by what she said
[23:10] * Exeter L. Wakefield drops to his knees
[23:11] * Exeter L. Wakefield SCREAMS, clutching the sides of his head
[23:11] <Exeter L. Wakefield> - I-- I REMEMBER -
[23:11] <Exeter L. Wakefield> - THE GREAT LIE -
[23:11] <Exeter L. Wakefield> - THE LIE RASSILON-- -
[23:11] <Exeter L. Wakefield> - THE LIE BENEATH US ALL -
[23:12] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte is pushed back by the force of his mental outburst. Her connexion with him floods her with a piercing pain
[23:15] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte fights through it to put her hands on his shoulders
[23:15] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> What is it, love?
[23:16] <Exeter L. Wakefield> So many... So many lives ago...
[23:16] <Exeter L. Wakefield> When... he... when Xadium and Minako came to Gallifrey...
[23:16] <Exeter L. Wakefield> they discovered the horrific truth... a truth I'd sealed away...
[23:16] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte>
[23:17] * Exeter L. Wakefield stsnds up straight
[23:17] * Exeter L. Wakefield grits his teeth, and somehow, because here mind andf matter are one...
[23:17] * Exeter L. Wakefield RAMS his hand into his forehead and into his brain...
[23:18] <Exeter L. Wakefield> ...the Rassilon Imprimatur...
[23:18] <Exeter L. Wakefield> ...the 'gift' of Rassilon that turns a Gallifreyan into a Time Lord...
[23:19] * Exeter L. Wakefield YANKS the Imprimatur out of his brain and HOLDS IT UP for Paisley to see
[23:19] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte backs up several steps in pure, horrified shock
[23:21] * For what she sees... imperfect a copy that it might be... she recognises instantly... as...
[23:21] * ...a Sailor Crystal .
[23:22] *** TO BE CONTINUED
[23:43] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ...Why... why do you have a Sailor Crystal in your head.....?
[23:43] *** @Paisley Pythia Peinforte has turned their sound on
[23:44] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> And why don't I know about this... we-- we know everything about each other... literally.
[23:45] <Exeter L. Wakefield> This.. was lost... part of my memories I threw away in the "equivalent exchange" when you saved my life... when I discarded who I was to Become who I am.
[23:45] <Exeter L. Wakefield> But it... it remembers. It remembers everything.
[23:46] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ...that's why you've been reverting to how you used to be, a piece at a time.
[23:46] <Exeter L. Wakefield> It's like an anchor...
[23:46] <Exeter L. Wakefield> Pulling me down and back to fixed level...
[23:47] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> But again... sailor crystal. Is this because of Minako? You mentioned her.
[23:47] <Exeter L. Wakefield> It's not a Sailor Crystal.
[23:47] <Exeter L. Wakefield> It...
[23:47] * Exeter L. Wakefield winces and drops to his knees a bit, memories flooding in
[23:48] <Exeter L. Wakefield> It's the Rassilon Imprimatur...
[23:48] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> A rose by any other name, love.
[23:48] * Exeter L. Wakefield shakes his head
[23:48] <Exeter L. Wakefield> You'll.. understand shortly...
[23:48] <Exeter L. Wakefield> This place...
[23:49] * Exeter L. Wakefield 's memories bleed into the surroundings, tainting the stark pure-white surroundings with inky blackness
[23:50] * the darkness then gives way to a tableau that surrounds and encompasses, a window into a life long lost... from [relatively] aeons ago...
[23:50] * @Dr. X is now known as Doctor Xadium
[23:50] * [gTV] is now known as Sailor Venus
[23:50] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ...
[23:51] <[gTV]Sailor Venus> Xadium-san... where are we?
[23:51] <@Doctor Xadium> This is somewhere on Gallifrey. My... my home planet.
[23:52] <@Doctor Xadium> The enemy comes from here.
[23:52] * [gTV]Sailor Venus frowns
[23:52] <[gTV]Sailor Venus> Ano...
[23:53] <[gTV]Sailor Venus> The Sailor Senshi who nearly killed Setsuna-san comes from here?? Is she... is she a "Sailor Gallifrey?"
[23:54] <@Doctor Xadium> My people have no record of anything like a Sailor Senshi ever operating on Gallifrey.
[23:54] <@Doctor Xadium> As far as I know, there has never been a "Sailor Gallifrey."
[23:54] <[gTV]Sailor Venus> Demo...
[23:55] * [gTV]Sailor Venus wrinkles her nose
[23:55] <[gTV]Sailor Venus> That doesn't sound right??
[23:55] * @Doctor Xadium turns to regard the human. "What do you mean?"
[23:56] <[gTV]Sailor Venus> Well, during our big fight with Sailor Galaxia we found out almost every planet and asteriods and moons and things can have a Senshi if there's life on it.
[23:56] <[gTV]Sailor Venus> Gallifrey's got life on it, right??
[23:58] * @Doctor Xadium shakes his head. "Minako, that's a very simple way of thinking about things. Gallifrey was the first planet upon which live arose in the Universe. It existed before Time existed. It's probably safe to say the rules don't apply."
[23:58] * [gTV]Sailor Venus makes a face
[23:58] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Wow someone was a condascending prig :P
[23:58] <Exeter L. Wakefield> He was a bit full of himself, yeah.
[23:59] * the scene continues
[23:59] <[gTV]Sailor Venus> I don't know... I think you're wrong.
[23:59] <@Doctor Xadium> Based on what? A 'Woman's Intuition'?
[23:59] <@Doctor Xadium> Hardly scientific.
[00:00] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ...Wow what an arsehole.
[00:00] <Exeter L. Wakefield> HE GOT BETTER
[00:00] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Mmm-hmm.
[00:00] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte is dubious.
[00:01] * @Doctor Xadium starts to lecture on how human intuition is really just a set of misunderstood responses to previously encountered stimili
[00:01] * [gTV]Sailor Venus 's face gets more aghast at this
[00:02] * [gTV]Sailor Venus waves her hand in a "Stop" gesture.
[00:02] <[gTV]Sailor Venus> Fine, fine! I don't care!! You said she came here, right?
[00:02] <@Doctor Xadium> Yes.
[00:02] <[gTV]Sailor Venus> Why??
[00:02] <[gTV]Sailor Venus> Why to your planet??
[00:03] <@Doctor Xadium> Well, let's look at it logically, eh?
[00:03] <@Doctor Xadium> She attacked and nearly killed Setsuna at the Time Gate.
[00:04] <@Doctor Xadium> When you and I appeared to help, she saw my TARDIS. The presence of the other Senshi meant that the Time Gate was no longer accessible to her.
[00:05] <@Doctor Xadium> Thus, she decided to make her way to my planet because whatever time-related malfeasance she was contemplating was now only possible via alternative means.
[00:05] <@Doctor Xadium> And what better place to meddle with time than the home of the Time Lords?
[00:06] <[gTV]Sailor Venus> But how could she even GET here?? Your "friends" gave you tons of trouble for even bringing me along!! There was all that security! Didn't you say 'not one particle of stuff can make its way ojto Gallifrey unless we allow it??"
[00:07] <@Doctor Xadium> "Matter". I said "Matter". Not... "Stuff."
[00:07] * [gTV]Sailor Venus just makes this "I don't give a s[BLEEP]t" face.
[00:07] <[gTV]Sailor Venus> Matter... stuff... whatever ><
[00:08] <@Doctor Xadium> No, not whatever. The Details matter, Aino Minako.
[00:09] * [gTV]Sailor Venus jabs her finger in his face. "Oh yeah? Well the detail that matters is that if no matter can get here without permission, WHO GAVE IT TO HER!?"
[00:09] <@Doctor Xadium> .............
[00:10] * @Doctor Xadium 's mouth opens and closes soundlessly. He doesn't have an answer for that immediately. After a second, he finally replied "well she must have had an accomplice, or stolen her way here with another Time Lord."
[00:11] <[gTV]Sailor Venus> Or she belongs here.
[00:12] * @Doctor Xadium makes an exasperated face and struggles to contain his irritation. "Will you Stop saying that? There is no such thing as Sailor Gallifrey."
[00:14] <Young Woman> That's right. There isn't.
[00:14] * There is the sound of a staser turning on.
[00:14] * @Doctor Xadium and Venus turn to face this woman, who resembles the Sailor Senshi which attacked them back at the Moon Palace.
[00:15] <Young Woman> ..But there used to be.
[00:15] * Young Woman snarls
[00:15] <@Doctor Xadium> I've never heard of such a thi--
[00:16] * Young Woman fires a shot into Xadium's shoulder. "Do be quiet, Time Lord."
[00:16] * @Doctor Xadium cries out and tumbls back. Venus catches him and raises her fingers as if to launch a crescent beam.
[00:17] <Young Woman> You remember what happened last time, don't you, Earthling? My powers allow me to freely manipulate the flow of time. Your light attack was utterly useless. But please, feel free to try again.
[00:18] * [gTV]Sailor Venus obliges and fires a shot at the woman, her screcent beam moving at the speed of light
[00:19] * Young Woman just stands there as the beam- which now looks like a streak just suspended in the air, suddenly comes to almost a full stop, creeping along towards her at less than a millimeter a minute.
[00:19] * Young Woman shakes her head. "Humans are stubborn cereatures."
[00:19] * Young Woman just calmly sidesteps the beam.
[00:20] * Young Woman releases the slowdow and the beam crashes into something behind her, causing a minor explosion.
[00:21] <Young Woman> Now, shall we have a civil discussion?
[00:21] <[gTV]Sailor Venus> If you're not Sailor Gallifrey then what are you a Sailor Senshi of??
[00:22] * Young Woman looks at Xadium disdainfully
[00:23] * Young Woman waves the gun, indicating a direction. "You two will come with me. Now that you're here this will be possible."
[00:23] * Young Woman looks at Xadium and Venus
[00:24] <@Doctor Xadium> What... were you trying to do at the Time Gate....
[00:25] <Young Woman> Why to get back here, of course.
[00:26] <Young Woman> But once I ran into you two I just had your TARDIS bring me here instead. I then sent it back to you one picosecond after it left so you never noticed.
[00:27] <@Doctor Xadium> Don't be ridiculous. My TARDIS is isomorphically locked. Only I can operate it.
[00:27] <Young Woman> Locks can be broken, Doctor Xadium.
[00:27] <@Doctor Xadium> And you're not a Time Lord.. how could you even pilot it?
[00:27] * Young Woman smirks
[00:28] <Young Woman> No, I'm not a Time Lord. But Gallifreyan technology is just so responsive to me.
[00:28] * Young Woman touches what appears to be nondescript wall which suddenly changes form, shaping itself into a doorway.
[00:29] <Young Woman> Come along now, Time Lord.
[00:29] <Young Woman> Come along now and learn of your Original Sin.
[00:29] <@Doctor Xadium> _My_ sin?
[00:29] * Young Woman shrugs. "The sin of your caste, if you will."
[00:30] <Young Woman> Of the "Lords of Time." Rassilon's dogs.
[00:30] <Young Woman> Rassilon's Neutered Dogs.
[00:30] <@Doctor Xadium> Who ARE you?
[00:31] * Young Woman dorces the duo down a series of geometrically impossible pathways that fold in and out of themselves backwards and forwards through time and space.
[00:32] * Young Woman finally leads them to an ancient, musty chamber, dimly lit, that seems to smell of blood, and fear, and pain. A giant seal of Rassilon is carved into the top of a wall several hundred meters high.
[00:32] <Young Woman> It was here that it happened.
[00:33] <Young Woman> So long ago.
[00:33] <Young Woman> So very, very long ago.
[00:33] * Young Woman nods to a stone table that looks like a sacrificial altar.
[00:34] <@Doctor Xadium> What.. is this place?
[00:34] <[gTV]Sailor Venus> I don't like the feel of this place Xadium-san
[00:34] <Young Woman> Nor should you, Sailor Senshi.
[00:35] <Young Woman> Perhaps that part of you connected to the Well of Souls [Galaxy Cauldron] understands what happened here.
[00:36] * Young Woman looks at Xadium, who seems a bit pallid. "And same to you, Neutered God."
[00:36] * Young Woman chuckles. "...Dog."
[00:36] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ...
[00:36] * Exeter L. Wakefield looks away, not wanting to see what comes next.
[00:37] <@Doctor Xadium> Isn't it about time you revealed what this is all about!?
[00:38] * Young Woman shrugs. snapping her fingers, several black-hooded Acolytes seem to emerge from nothingness and grab Sailor Venus, injecting her with some kind of narcotic. They quickly place her on the sacrificial altar while the Woman has Xadium covered with her Staser.
[00:38] <Young Woman> This is about balancing the scales.
[00:38] <Young Woman> This is about revenge.
[00:38] <Young Woman> This is about the...
[00:39] * Young Woman 's hand starts to shake with her rage and sorrow
[00:39] <Young Woman> This is about the greatest crime and sin of the Time Lords.
[00:40] <Young Woman> Which you and this Sailor Soldier will pay for. With your lives.
[00:40] <@Doctor Xadium> I don't know what you're talking about.
[00:40] <@Doctor Xadium> I've commited no crime!
[00:40] * Young Woman SNARLS and almost TACKLES Xadium, SMASHING him up against a wall
[00:41] <@Doctor Xadium> That is our FUNCTION!
[00:42] * Young Woman drops her gun and grabs his throat, almost crushing his windpipe with one hand
[00:43] * Young Woman SPINS him sideways and DASHES him against a wall. Xadium tries ot tackle her... btu passes right though her?
[00:43] <@Doctor Xadium> .....
[00:43] <Young Woman> YOU ASKED WHAT I WAS
[00:43] <Young Woman> I AM A MEMORY
[00:44] <Young Woman> I AM THE LAST REMNANT
[00:44] <@Doctor Xadium> Te last remnant... of what?
[00:44] * @Doctor Xadium tries to staunch the bleeding from his forehead
[00:45] * Young Woman SCREAMS like a Banshee and seems to fill the entire room, and again, the scene changes.
[00:45] * It is the same chamber, but much cleaner. Brighter. Sterile.
[00:46] * Clearly this was a long long time ago.
[00:48] * Three Men enter the Chamber. RASSILON, a prominent politician of his day, OMEGA, a stellar engineer, and the man who would later be known as THE CORRUPTOR, a wealthy historian from House Nyne.
[00:50] * RASSILON regards the others. "The Pythia has finally been deposed. It is only a matter of days now before we will be able to take the neccessary steps to quell the riots in the streets and establish a new High Council. Her followers have all fled to Karn, and will trouple us no longer.
[00:51] * "Riots that you caused," OMEGA notes with disgust as THE CORRUPTOR smiles.
[00:52] * "Come now," THE CORRUPTOR chides. "The Pythia was a superstitious fool. But a dangerous one. She and her sisters were standing in the way of our destiny as a people. They had to be eliminated from the equation."
[00:53] * "Mastery of Time," OMEGA snorted. "It is a fundamental force of the Cosmos. Why do you both want to tame it so badly?"
[00:55] * RASSILON sighs, tired of having this old argument. "The Pythia wanted to live in a so-called 'balance' with the Universe, relying on the power of the Gallifreyan Mind to meet all our needs and hold this planet in homeostasis. But I see farther than her. I see an enture firmament that can be tamed. We can shape the destiny and direction of every being that will ever exist."
[00:57] * OMEGA shakes his head. "As a scientist I am not opposed to experimentation, but---"
[00:58] * THE CORRUPTOR raises a hand. "Let me put it plainly. The mind-powers of the Pythia and her Sisters grow stronger with every passing span. Even now, others in the cities are beginning to show the same abilities. Pyrokinesis. Telekinetics. Prognotistication.
[00:59] * "There are those among us with the power, and those of us without. There will come a time when those without will, no doubt, become slaves to those with. History teaches this."
[01:01] * RASSILON nods. "I do not intend to be at the mercy of this new generation of Gallifreyan. Their power represents an unknown potential... a potential that is at once needed... and yet... inconvenient."
[01:02] * "Well what can we do about it?" OMEGA asks. "You've already mortally wounded the Pythia and driven her followers off to that Black Rock. Without them, it will take longer for the empowered ones to understand and control their powers."
[01:05] * RASSILON smiles. "I have considered this. And I have a solution. I call it... 'The Intuitive Revolution." It hinges upon your Time-Travel Experiments. If you can get me the power of a Nova, I can proceed to anchor Gallifrey at the starting edge f the Web of Time, and we will have control over it. We will then usher in a new, Scientific Order with myself at the head. We Three will reform the Academies, and choose who enter. We will then 'elevate them' to an elite status.
[01:06] * OMEGA looks confused. "I don't understand..."
[01:07] * THE CORRUPTOR explains. "These new Gallifreyans... the ones with the power to warp reality with a thought... we will not persecute them. No, instead we will embrace them. Embrace... limit.. and control."
[01:08] * OMEGA looks shocked. "No one would ever agree to such a thing."
[01:09] * RASSILON laughs. "foolish children, ignorant of their own potential will happily accept a yoke if they think it golden. They will simply believe that I, Rassilon, am the source of their power. And of course, I will make sure that when they bind themself to my teaching... I will keep them from ever realizing the totality of their potential."
[01:11] * "How," Omega demanded. "The battle against the Pythia cost hundreds of lives and even then it was said she simply decided to quit the field. How can you manage to contain power on that scale?"
[01:11] * Rassilon waves his arm and a door opens.
[01:11] <Exeter L. Wakefield> ...Here it comes.
[01:11] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte watches
[01:13] * Several men cloaked in the colors of Prydon Academy emerge from the doorway, forcibly holding a young woman, whom modern eyes would instantly recognize as some kind of Planetary Senshi
[01:14] * They shove her on a biobed in the lab, and a scanner begins to take readings.
[01:14] * Rassilon clamps his hand over her mouth as she attempts to scream.
[01:14] * "This creature was found in the Old City."
[01:15] * THE CORRUPTOR winces. "Rassilon, please."
[01:17] * RASSILON laughs. "Oh yes, I forgot, you have a daughter, do you not? Well, rest assured this one is nothing like your Hazenine. She is a mutation of some kind, possessing abilities even beyond that of the Pythian Sisters."
[01:17] * "She can barely be considered Gallifreyan."
[01:18] * OMEGA is revulsed by the racism on display. "Lord Rassilon, what is this about. Why is this girl here?"
[01:20] * RASSILON points to the readings on the scanners. "Her body itself warps and interacts with TimeSpace in ways that even I cannot determine. She seems to have some kind of Sympathetic Resonance with the Planet itself...
[01:21] * "It is as if the unique atttributes of Gallifrey and its place in reality are made manifest in her flesh."
[01:22] * The Girl squirms and struggles to the point where she starts flinging acolytes across the room
[01:23] * "That won't do at all." RASSILON presses a switch and pins her under a force-field.
[01:23] * "By the Pit what are you doing!? OMEGA protests. "She's scared!"
[01:24] * "That's enough, Omega," THE CORRUPTOR commands, his mental presence at once strong and magnified. OMEGA is immediately silenced.
[01:26] * "You will proceed with the experiment at Qqaba, You will think upon this no more."
[01:27] * OMEGA meekly obeys even as his subconcious screams rebellion, planting a seed of rage and fury that would not see expression for another ten billion years...
[01:27] * OMEGA leaves.
[01:27] * THE CORRUPTOR looks at Rassilon. "Must you torture her so? Can't you sedate her or something?"
[01:28] * RASSILON shakes his head. "I don't want anything to interfere with the operation."
[01:28] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ...operation...?
[01:29] <[gTV]Sailor Venus> ...operation...??
[01:29] * @Doctor Xadium watches this play out with a growing sense of dread and slow-dawning understanding.
[01:32] * RASSILON murmurs to himself. "No, no the neural activity and connections must not be degraded at all. Her mutation has given rise to the most interesting crystalline nanostructures distributed evenly between the atoms in her brain, which appears to be Gallifreyan in structure. This lends her body a unique affinity to local reality even more senitive than our own, and means that it will be fairly straightforward to adapt the mutation to our specific needs.
[01:33] * Rassilon sighs. "But it does mean we have to force the reconstitution of the crystalline substructure. so that I can examine and reproduce it. It doesn't looks like the particles are reactive when she is unconcious."
[01:34] * THE CORRUPTOR nods silently.
[01:34] * Rassilon shrugs, donning some gloves. "Vivisection it is, then."
[01:34] * The Screams lasted for over an hour.
[01:42] * After it was over, the blood wiped away, and the body diced for disposal, RASSILON held in his hand what future generations would call a "Sailor Crystal". He stared at it every which way, scanning it with a device worn over his right eye like a sinister monocle. He marveled at it, yes. This natural resonator that put its host body so in tune with the rhythms of the planet. And, beautifully, he calculated, once he had succeeded in anchoring Gallifrey to the new Web of Time, by the transitive property, it would resonate the host with All of reality. Of course, he would also need to modify it so that the host could never fully use that potential, lest they become too powerful for control.
[01:47] * The next few years were a blur. OMEGA was lost to the Supernova he birthed, and THE CORRUPTOR vanished into history, with RASSILON perfecting his "imrimatur"-- a modified version of the biocrystal that, once implanted into a Gallifreyan would give them enough resonance with the Vortex that they could even channel alternate potentials of themselves and physically reincarnate into them on the spot. Their strength, biofunctions and senses would all be enhanced both by the natural powers of the crystal but also by the biogenetic modifiers he had imbued them with. And, in exchange, 99% of the hosts would lose the ability to fully utilize their true mental capacities - they would still stand as Lords of the universe, but not as Gods.

No, only Rassilon would stand supreme.

[01:48] * [gTV]Sailor Venus threw up at the scene, which faded out, first for her and Xadium, and then they faded out, leaving Paisley and Exeter.
[01:48] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte looks too stunned for words. Exeter just looks ashamed, holding the impirmatur in his hand.
[01:48] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ...Obviously Xadium survived.
[01:51] <Exeter L. Wakefield> Yes. TL,DR of it was that Rassilon destroyed the Sailor Crystal of Sailor Gallifrey, and made inferior copies which he used to "elevate" the Galifreyans he felt were most at risk of developing supreme mental power to "Time Lords" who would, while still being very powerful, still be stunted and yoked to the paradigm of technology that he developed.
[01:52] <Exeter L. Wakefield> Of course a few came into their own anyway.
[01:52] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> So who was the girl, ultimately?
[01:55] <Exeter L. Wakefield> While Rassilon destroyed the original crystal, to make his imprimaturs he had to, of course, duplicate a good portion of it. A Sailor Senshi, as we now know, is fused with their crystal such that their memories and experiences bond with it. This is why when Galaxia took the crystals from the Senshi they were still able to come back. This is why when Senshi are reborn they can access those past memories. And, thus it was why any Time Lord with the imprimatur could, in theory, "remember" the truth.
[01:56] <Exeter L. Wakefield> The girl was a Time Lord initiate who had just gotten her imprimatur, but apparently was so resonant with it that what remained of Sailor Gallifrey was able to take over.. and justifiably, Gallifrey wanted revenge.
[01:56] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> What ended up happening to her.
[01:56] <Exeter L. Wakefield> Nothing good.
[01:57] * Exeter L. Wakefield sighs. "Remembering it all now, I wish I could forget."
[01:57] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte SLAPS him
[01:57] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Don't you DARE forget her and what she went though.
[01:58] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Regardless of if you personally had anything to do with it, that thing in your head is her pain and suffering and sorrow as much as it is a miracle of science.
[01:58] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> You owe her your respect, and your gratitude.
[01:59] <Exeter L. Wakefield> I'm sorry. You're right, of course.
[01:59] <Exeter L. Wakefield> .me stares at the crystal in his hand. "But why am I remembering this now?"
[02:00] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ...Places like this are crucibles of transformation. Spiritually, mentally and physically.
[02:00] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> If this was what it was used for before Rassilon did what he did...
[02:01] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Then it must have been an underground place of initiation for those he was so afraid of.
[02:02] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> _This_ must be where the Pythia, the original sisters, and Gallifreyans who had developed beyond the norm went,...
[02:02] <Exeter L. Wakefield> ...went to do what...?
[02:03] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> a guess? To become Gods.
[02:03] *** TO BE CONTINUED
[19:27] <Exeter L. Wakefield> The problem is what you're describing is notjing more than Time Lord Mythology.
[19:28] <Exeter L. Wakefield> Yes, Gallifreyan civilization has done tremendous things. We can move solar systems across the universe with ease, time and its attendant forces are like playthings. But I've neevr seen a Time Lord go around causing planets to burn with a thought.
[19:29] <Exeter L. Wakefield> Such things are embellishments of scientific conquests of old.
[19:29] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ...Omega.
[19:29] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Didn't he build an entire universe out of sheer will?
[19:30] <Exeter L. Wakefield> ..Harnessing the power of a Singulairty-- which yes, is a prodigious mental feat in itself, I'll aadmit.
[19:30] <Exeter L. Wakefield> But...
[19:31] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> You're in denial.
[19:31] <Exeter L. Wakefield> I'm not in denial.
[19:31] <Exeter L. Wakefield> Thinka bout all the things Xadium went through and suffered in his life.
[19:32] <Exeter L. Wakefield> If he had that kind of power, don't you think he would have used it insread of opening up a shop and selling items to people to try and protect them?
[19:32] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ...Or camping out in a beautiful young woman's manor doling out bits of future history to her~ :P
[19:32] <Exeter L. Wakefield> ...
[19:33] <Exeter L. Wakefield> you invited him to come there.
[19:33] <Exeter L. Wakefield> You bootstrapped all of that.
[19:33] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> So what if I did!
[19:33] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> So what if I wanted to protect something I found important?
[19:34] <Exeter L. Wakefield> I'm not judging.
[19:34] <Exeter L. Wakefield> All I'm saying is if he could have done all those things wouldn't it have been a lot EASIER.
[19:34] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Right well
[19:35] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I am strong enough to compel ordinary people to do or see whatever I want with the power of my mind. I don't do it.
[19:35] <Exeter L. Wakefield> Yes you do. You hide most of your tattoos from sight.
[19:36] <Exeter L. Wakefield> You only let the ones on your arm, leg and--
[19:36] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> YES all right
[19:36] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> But that's because I need a certain number visible for their properties to take effect.
[19:37] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> The point is we all hold back to a certain dress for various reasons, be they ethical, practical or neccessary.
[19:37] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ^a certain degree
[19:37] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Your people were strict non-interventionists for ages.
[19:37] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> They literally held back because of their f[BLEEP]kup with the Minyans.
[19:38] <Exeter L. Wakefield> That's different, though. That was a policy decision.
[19:38] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Listen to me.
[19:39] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Ever since I rebooted you if you will, you agreed to be my apprentice. Not a Time Lord, but my familiar.
[19:39] <Exeter L. Wakefield> Well I can't help it if partsof me just are too stubborn to stay uncreated.
[19:40] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Yes, and THAT should be a clue to you-- but we digress.
[19:40] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> As my creature, you're supposed to be lookingg at things the way I wabnt you to, not the way Old Father Rassilon taught you in school.
[19:41] * Exeter L. Wakefield gives her a withering look. "Go on then, what am I doing wrong?
[19:41] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I've trained you to operate on the level fo the mind, and the soul.
[19:42] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Now let's do that. We're already in a realm where physicality and immorality is just a courtesy.
[19:42] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> The very secrets of your people lie here, waiting to be taken by those who Seek.
[19:42] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> And one of the great secrets is "what happened to the Time Lords of Old?"
[19:43] <Exeter L. Wakefield> ...I don't care?
[19:43] <Exeter L. Wakefield> That's like a Human asking "what happened to the Olympian Gods"
[19:43] <Exeter L. Wakefield> It doesn't affect their everyday life one whit
[19:43] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ...I could get into why you're wrong about that but this isn't the time.
[19:44] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> No pun intended.
[19:44] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> You don't care?
[19:44] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> A Time Lord- basically a space academic writ large is confronted with a massive historical mystery and doesn't care?
[19:44] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Doesn't that seem a touch off brand, love?
[19:45] * Exeter L. Wakefield frowns
[19:45] <Exeter L. Wakefield> There's so many other problems to be concerned with. Rassilon, Kelliphan, and who knows wo else are headed this way--
[19:46] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> - Stop deflecting me! -
[19:46] <Exeter L. Wakefield> I'm NOT!
[19:47] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Every denial, every excuse, every Reason you're coughing up is a deflection. I told you. You are in Denial.
[19:47] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> You and almost every other member of your cohort.
[19:47] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I can sense it -- at least ther edges of it.
[19:47] <Exeter L. Wakefield> Sense what?
[19:48] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte exhales
[19:48] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> You know the conception of the Collective unconcious?
[19:48] <Exeter L. Wakefield> Yeah, Yeats and Jung talked about it.
[19:48] <Exeter L. Wakefield> The Spiritus Mundi
[19:49] <Exeter L. Wakefield> The overmind that seems to link people and animals
[19:49] <Exeter L. Wakefield> Where one person thinmkos of Calculus and almost at the same time unrelated people in the same line of work make the discovery
[19:50] <Exeter L. Wakefield> Or where animals on one island separated by a natural barrier from others of their kind somehow pick up the new skills the others learned with no physical contact.
[19:50] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> It's not limited to humans. There's a universal collective mind and more than likely a Gallifreyan one.
[19:51] <Exeter L. Wakefield> Yes, the Pantroptic Matrix.
[19:51] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte stomps her foot
[19:51] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> - NO, NOT THE MACHINE -
[19:51] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Not the machine you lot built to give you a faux_ collectiv--
[19:52] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Christ that makes so much sense.
[19:52] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> A faux collective to keep you detached and unrooted in the real one.
[19:52] <Exeter L. Wakefield> ....
[19:52] * Exeter L. Wakefield starts to see perhaps the edges of Paise's train of thought
[19:53] <Exeter L. Wakefield> What are you saying... that we...
[19:53] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Time Lords. Divorced from nature. Ensconced in Tech. Withdrawn from the outside lands into their Citadels. Marvels of engineering, yes. But guilded cages, perhaps?
[19:53] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ^gilded
[19:54] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Pulling back, pulling Away, withdrawing, hiding.
[19:54] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Hiding even when pushing forward out into the universe
[19:54] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Your true names behind Titles
[19:54] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Your true selves behind the myriad faces you wear.
[19:55] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> A civilisation of masks and mirrors
[19:55] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Deception without... and within
[19:55] * Exeter L. Wakefield starts to feel decidedly uneasy
[19:55] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> My dear love
[19:55] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> We aren't seeking some kind of weapon.
[19:56] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Or a treasure-box
[19:56] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> We're seeking the most dangerous thing of all
[19:56] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> An Answer.
[19:56] <Exeter L. Wakefield> ....
[20:02] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> An answer that might as well be as dangerous as a weapon.
[20:05] <Exeter L. Wakefield> Then why look for it?
[20:06] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Because... as I found out in a different context...
[20:06] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte hugs him a bit
[20:06] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Sometimes... the time just comes when you have to step out of your comfort zone and confront yourself.
[20:07] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte lets go
[20:07] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> And I think what we need to do is confront the collective psyche... of your entire race.
[20:12] <Exeter L. Wakefield> I--
[20:12] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte swipes the erzatz Sailor crystal from his hand
[20:14] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte then places her hand on the side of his face and then steps _through Exeter then pulls him through her and it;s all very fractal and complicated
[20:29] * The scene changes to show the universe, less than a quarter of its current size
[20:40] * on a small world, a populationis being slaughtered by a creature made of amorphous mist, strking out from between moments in time to ensnare its prey
[20:42] * it reaches out, stopping or slowing time to capture the hapless lizard-like humanoids in its path
[20:43] * the scene plays out over generations, as the people live in feare of the cereature, worshipping, fearing, sacrificing to it.
[20:44] * One child, whose elder sibling is selected for sacrifice, rails and cries, not undersstanding why none try to even fight the "dark god", only meekly accepting their fates
[20:46] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> The child runs away from its village, not knowing what it can do, but hoping against hope it can find someone-- anyone willing to help
[20:46] * ^
[20:47] * The child eventually encounters a lone stranger. A man in long black robes, adorned in ornate golden circular glyphs and sigils that seem to shift and change as they are looked at
[20:48] * The stranger looks at the child, and with a glance, obtains Understanding. Silently, he moves ot the village. The child, similarly, Understands.
[20:48] * The battle has been joined.
[20:49] * For days, weeks, months, the Stranger stands in the same spot in the village, speaking to no one, not eating, not drinking, not blinking. Around him, plants sprout, blossom and die in the space of hours.
[20:52] * The dark god waited, and watched, its ire growing. It knew that the Stranger was dangerous. and desired to avoid it. But the villagers and their sacrifice were in the Strangers' radius. To get to them, the Stranger would need to be crossed.
[20:52] * with a burst of incredible speed. the Dark God flew, aiming for its target.
[20:54] * IT slipped out into the night air and grabbed its victim, paralyzing it with a touch and ripping its head off. The Stranger had not even moved to intervene.
[20:54] * The Dark God was amused. it has been wrong to worry. Its prey had been so easily cau--
[20:54] * The prey was gone.
[20:54] * It had never been caught.
[20:55] * The Dark God was flying towards its Prey.
[20:55] * Prey, telescoping away in an infinity of moments, each further away than the next, like an image receding in an infinity of mirrors.
[20:56] * Desperately, the dark god tried to move forward towards its target, but each moment of movement was slower, shorter, less effectual.
[20:57] * It then tried to break out of the time corridor, but found itself helplessly dragged along, like a mighty whale being caught by a Tsunami
[20:58] * and Yet, the Stranger had not moved.
[21:00] * as its moments stretched out towards infinity, it wishes for nothing more than to remove itself back to the planes. But it could not. It could not move, it could not shift. It was locked forever in one shape, an infinitely contracting sphere, which reduced itself an agonizing millimeter at a time
[21:01] * The creature tried to cry out, to curse its captor. Who had done this? What had done this?!
[21:01] * "You shall never reach the truth" was the last thing it felt before it stopped thinking.
[21:02] * Then, the stranger moved, slowly walking from the village, taking with him a small fly trapped in amber.
[21:02] <Exeter L. Wakefield> What was that..? I didn't see or sense him do anything?
[21:06] <Exeter L. Wakefield> There was no time stop, or Time combat...
[21:07] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Didn't you See?
[21:10] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte is now known as Aino Minako
[21:10] <@Aino Minako> Ne~?
[21:10] <Exeter L. Wakefield> Can you not... can you not do that. It's very disconcerting.
[21:10] * @Aino Minako is now known as Paisley Pythia Peinforte
[21:11] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ....I trained you better than this. You sohuld have seen past the busty blonde :P
[21:11] <Exeter L. Wakefield> You always hit below the belt :P
[21:12] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> When I change like that I "come to an agreement" with local reality.
[21:12] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> That'as what he did but on a whole other level.
[21:12] <Exeter L. Wakefield> ....
[21:16] * Time... doesn't seem to be his sole domain.
[21:18] * Time, however, moves on. The universe has grown a little. More civilzations are growing and flourishing, and, of course, as is the way of things, warring. And The Gods have chosen their favourites.
[21:20] * They clash by proxy, using the worlds and galaxies as chess pieces in a Great Game, aiming to achieve a perfect order through carefully controlled manipulation of chaos.
[21:22] * Space-armies thrown into stars with a thought. Supernovae eliminating entire systems to disrupt supply chains. Galactic collisions to eliminate the rise of challengers
[21:23] * But, over time, the greater goals get lost. The Gods still "help", but only to advance the fortunes of their chosen proxies.
[21:24] * Conflicts go from the abstract, to personal. Winning becomes desirable as opposed to Balance.
[21:26] * Disaster is sensed by some. They attempt to persuade, to counsel, but are ignored.
[21:26] * So they decide to play. To Play to Lose.
[21:28] * Strategically manipulating the game from afar over billions of years, the reality-wide conflict is narrowed in scope and intensitty, factions and games and pawnds and players finally converging in a battle for the soul and fate of one single, solitary world.
[21:29] * And the battle escalates, stakes raising. The pawns fall too quickly, forcing the Gods themselves to directly intervene.
[21:34] * Battles become direct, personal, bloody. The innocent beings who had been ignored as simple numbers in an equation were suddenly given faces, histories, lives, stories in the eyes of their previously distant manipulators.
[21:36] * And each of ther Patrons battled ever more fiercely to "Save" them, destroying and recreating reality and histories and alternatives to the point where finally reality itself screamed in despair and rent ansunder, the world splintering into irretrievable Neverness.
[21:36] <Exeter L. Wakefield> ....
[21:37] * The Gods stopped, looked upon what they had wrought, and wept.
[21:38] * It was then they vowed that the power which had led to their hubris and ambition should be forever Diminished, locked deep into the recesses of their being.
[21:42] * And enfoldment upon enfoldment upon enfrdlment proceeded in the space of an instant, the reach of aeons pressed down into a dull, aching dread that demanded its own suppression.
[21:44] * The moment rippled back and coupled with Rassilon's "gift", the Gods descended to become mere Lords, most never Remembering.
[21:46] * Of the Gods, only Four refused to divest themselves in this manner, determined to keep the Lords on the correct path to avoid the tragedy of the past.
[21:48] * The Lords, possessing consciously only a shadow of their ambition and desire, rose to great heights of technology as opposed ot mind, and used their mastery of Time and Space to act almost as Gods once more, until the tragedy of Minyos chastened them once more.
[21:49] * So it was that the Lords them exerted their influence only carefully, with calculation, so as not to break the balance.
[21:50] * as for the Four, Three eventually were lost to the mists of time, moving beyond to realms unknown.
[21:51] * As for the Fourth, he left markers, signs and portents for those who Knew to follow and find. And then, he slept.
[21:52] * In time, billions o years hence, Rassilon would find him once again, and in his ego, claim the Fourth as his "son", his "Creation."
[21:52] * But History remembers. And The Fourth remembers.
[21:53] <Exeter L. Wakefield> ...........
[21:54] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> So... now you know. Why it's locked away.
[21:55] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Your people are aways caught in the tension.
[21:56] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Rassilon's ambition versus the fear of destroying the balance. The desire to Do Whatever Needs to be Done versus the desire to not interfere.
[21:57] <Exeter L. Wakefield> Most... Time Lords become corrupted with power.
[21:57] <Exeter L. Wakefield> It's almost a trope.
[21:57] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I think it's because on some level, you Remember wat you used to be capable of.
[21:58] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> You've convinced yourselves it's a myth. Or something that you could be but need to avoid.
[21:58] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> But... it's what you are. Right now.
[21:59] <Exeter L. Wakefield> No...
[21:59] <Exeter L. Wakefield> No.
[21:59] <Exeter L. Wakefield> You're misinterpreting it. You have to be,
[21:59] <Exeter L. Wakefield> Because if you aren't...
[21:59] * Exeter L. Wakefield thinks of everything he's lost
[22:00] <Exeter L. Wakefield> I could have... I could have stopped all of that...
[22:00] <Exeter L. Wakefield> _ALL of that_
[22:00] * Exeter L. Wakefield clutches the side of his head
[22:00] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte bites her lower lip
[22:00] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte can tell he's at a tipping point
[22:01] <Exeter L. Wakefield> Do you know how many have DIED?
[22:01] <Exeter L. Wakefield> And Alll I did was Stand there helplessly? When I could--
[22:01] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte takes a deeep breath and KISSES HIM-- with a FIST TO THE FACE
[22:01] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> - GET A HOLD OF YOURSELF! -
[22:02] * Exeter L. Wakefield tumbles over
[22:02] * Exeter L. Wakefield shakes his head clearing the cobwebs
[22:04] <Exeter L. Wakefield> Thanks, I needed that <_<
[22:05] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Yeah, yeah you did.
[22:09] <Exeter L. Wakefield> You know Paise, you're unreasonably violent sometimes :P
[22:09] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Only with you, love. Only with you.
[22:09] * "Oh, she doesn't have a monopoly on violence."
[22:10] * Excellency Kelliphan holds a staser on them, having just arrived
[22:11] <Excellency Kelliphan> Now.. whatever it is you've found... you will give to me, as is my right as President of the High Counsil of Time Lords. And if you choose to resist... I'd remind you that stasers don't have a stun setting.
[22:11] *** TO BE CONTINUED
[22:53] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ....That's not a staser, it's a snake.
[22:54] * Excellency Kelliphan smirks. "I won't be fooled by your mind tricks, Sister of the Flame.
[22:54] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Seriously, look at your hand.
[22:55] <Excellency Kelliphan> I see it, but I know your tri--
[22:55] * Excellency Kelliphan gets bitten by the snake
[22:55] * Excellency Kelliphan 's eyes roll to the back fo her head and she crumples. The snake slithers away.
[22:55] <Exeter L. Wakefield> Wait what
[22:56] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> In this realm thoughts and reality are interchangeable, so my illusion became real - and I happened to make it a venomous one.
[22:56] <Exeter L. Wakefield> Paisley! you poisoned her!?
[22:57] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> You know full well I'm an expert poisoner. Don't worry, it's not lethal, it'll work its way out of her system ina few hours.
[22:57] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Let's move on
[22:57] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> God knows who's next
[22:58] * Exeter L. Wakefield takes one look back at Kelliphan and follows Paisley
[17:18] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte is very quiet both physically and mentally
[17:18] <Exeter L. Wakefield> thoughts?
[17:18] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> "The old world is dying, the new world appears slowly and in this chiaroscuro, monsters emerge."
[17:18] <Exeter L. Wakefield> ...wonderful
[17:19] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> You did ask.
[07:34] <Exeter L. Wakefield> So... what do we do with this knowledge now that we have it?
[07:35] <Rassilon> It will be given over to me.
[07:36] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ...Where the hell did you come from?
[07:36] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> (And ironically, he already has the answer he seeks, but he doesn't know what we know)
[07:37] <Rassilon> This is my home, not yours, human child who allies herself with that cult.
[07:38] <Hazel Ninegate> Oh, did you mean that "cult" that ran the planet until you stole power from them~?
[07:38] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Hazel!? How did you get here?
[07:39] <Hazel Ninegate> ¬_¬ I used to play in htese regions as a child. You forget how old I am.
[07:39] <Rassilon> Ahh, the child of house Nyne.
[07:39] <Rassilon> How is your father~
[07:39] * Rassilon smiles darkly
[07:39] * Hazel Ninegate is unphased
[07:40] <Hazel Ninegate> Alive and well, actually, no thanks to You.
[07:40] * Rassilon 's lips curl into a snarl for the breifest of instants, and then a smile settles upon his face once more
[07:41] * Rassilon holds up a hand, adorned in a Validium gauntlet.
[07:41] * Rassilon points a finger at Paisley. "Whatever it is you two have taken from this place, render it unto me. You have no right to it. Do this, and I shall show mercy.
[07:42] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Oh, is that your disintegrator glove?
[07:42] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte looks thoroughly unimpressed
[07:42] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte raises her arm and summons one of the gauntlets she used to wear back in the day
[07:42] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I've got better.
[07:43] <Rassilon> - Where did you get THAT. -
[07:43] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Same place you did, I'd expect. I inherited it as a family heirloom.
[07:43] <Rassilon> Another thing you will return to me if you wish to see tomorrow.
[07:44] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Tomorrow.
[07:44] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Well, 'Tomorrow' is an interesting concept, Rassilon of Gallifrey.
[07:44] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte seems to be speaking a bit differently
[07:44] <Rassilon> ...I know the voice coming from those lips.
[07:45] * Hazel and Exeter look on curiously. Exeter has already figured it out.
[07:45] <Rassilon> Pythia. Shouldn't you to back to your rotting bones? Aren't they somewhere under this mountain, anyway?
[07:45] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte is now known as Pythia
[07:46] <@Pythia> As if death would be more than a mere inconvenience.
[07:46] * Rassilon 's face darkens. This was not entirely unexpected, but most unwelcome.
[07:47] <@Pythia> Despite your efforts my children have done well.
[07:47] <@Pythia> And they have even returned to their ancestral seat to aid your children.
[07:47] <@Pythia> The family, reunited.
[07:48] <Rassilon> Family? Tch. A branch of the tree that should have been pruned aeons ago.
[07:48] * @Pythia shakes her head
[07:49] <@Pythia> Scientist. For such a man as yourself, you would imagine progress to be a welcome thing. But you always seek to return to a singular state of affairs.
[07:50] <Rassilon> "neither flux, nor wither, nor change their state" Perhaps you know these words.
[07:51] <Hazel Ninegate> The words you uttered when you announced the anchorage of the Eye of Harmony to Gallifrey.
[07:51] <Rassilon> I created a Fixture. A Permanence. A Structure to all things.
[07:52] <Rassilon> Stability. Order.
[07:52] <Rassilon> The Pythian order and its emotionalism is a weakness. An invitation to the unmitigated chaos that ruled creation before I took hold of it and stamped it out.
[07:53] <Hazel Ninegate> ...
[07:53] * Exeter L. Wakefield sees where Hazel got her attitudes from.
[07:53] <@Pythia> "Stamped it out?"
[07:53] * @Pythia laughs heartily
[07:54] <@Pythia> All you did was drive it underground, make it more perfidious and subtle.
[07:54] <@Pythia> And you, "Lord" Rassilon, have sown more chaos of your own in this pursuit of order.
[07:54] * @Pythia looks to HAzel
[07:54] <@Pythia> and inspired your followers...
[07:55] * @Pythia then looks to Exeter
[07:55] <@Pythia> ..and your children...
[07:55] <@Pythia> to do more of the same.
[07:56] <Rassilon> The words of the loser.
[07:56] <Rassilon> Why don't you return to that black rock of yours.
[07:57] <@Pythia> This brings us back to the start of this little conversation. "Tomorrow."
[07:57] <@Pythia> Does Gallifrey have a "Tomorrow," Rassilon?
[07:57] * Rassilon staunchly spits "Gallifrey IS Tomorrow! And yesterday! And All times!"
[07:58] <@Pythia> Indeed so. But within this Eternity, there is still shape. And, dreaded most of all to yourself, change.
[08:04] <@Pythia> Who would have imagined that one of your own children would come back home and wreak this devatation.
[08:05] <Rassilon> As you put it, "A mere inconvenience."
[08:06] <Rassilon> My children feel they no longer need me. After resurrecting me to win them their War, They turned on me- cast me out, into Exile. And this is the result.
[08:07] <Exeter L. Wakefield> Oh, you would have been able to stop them?
[08:07] <Rassilon> Judge for yourself.
[08:07] * Rassilon BLASTS Exeter with his gauntlet
[08:08] * Exeter L. Wakefield has blocked the blast with a kind of wall-barrier made of glowing, interlocked circles.
[08:08] <Hazel Ninegate> ...
[08:08] <Hazel Ninegate> That... force-field...
[08:08] <Hazel Ninegate> That's not Peinforte's doing.
[08:09] * Rassilon steps back a moment, looking horrified, then quickly conceals the expression
[08:09] <Hazel Ninegate> That's pure mental projection. And not a Karnian technique.,.
[08:09] <Rassilon> Be Quiet, girl!
[08:10] <Hazel Ninegate> ...that is a technique of the Gallifreyan. The Evolved Gallifreyan.
[08:11] <Hazel Ninegate> ...Wakefield.. what are you doing.
[08:12] <Exeter L. Wakefield> The same thing you can do.
[08:12] <Hazel Ninegate> The same thing even I *won't* do.
[08:13] * Rassilon looks at the child of house Nyne with greater apprehension.
[08:13] <Rassilon> You're like your father...
[08:13] <Hazel Ninegate> That's right.
[08:13] <Hazel Ninegate> I didn't need the "gift" of Rassilon.
[08:13] <Hazel Ninegate> That treacherous offering.
[08:14] <Exeter L. Wakefield> But Xadium's seen you use Gallifreyan technology and your imprimatur.
[08:14] * Hazel Ninegate snorts
[08:14] <Hazel Ninegate> Such is my will
[08:15] <Hazel Ninegate> People like me don't need an interface to make things happen.
[08:15] * Hazel Ninegate puts it together
[08:15] <Hazel Ninegate> So that's the secret.
[08:15] <Hazel Ninegate> You came here and discovered the true birthright.
[08:16] <Excellency Kelliphan> Oh, they disocvered one other thing as well
[08:16] * Excellency Kelliphan walks in, looking rather... strange. As though she is sleepwalking.
[08:16] <Excellency Kelliphan> They discovered the original sin.
[08:16] <Rassilon> ............................
[08:17] * Excellency Kelliphan reaches into her own head and pulls out her imprimatur the same way Exeter did
[08:17] <@Pythia> Oho. This is getting interesting, Rassilon~
[08:17] <Rassilon> - Silence, witch! -
[08:18] <Exeter L. Wakefield> But how did you...
[08:18] <Exeter L. Wakefield> Those were my-- Xadium's memories.
[08:18] * Excellency Kelliphan tosses the Imprimatur up and down in her hand and then flips it upside down
[08:18] <Excellency Kelliphan> - Because we ALL carry the memory -
[08:19] <Excellency Kelliphan> - Because here, time is irrelevant -
[08:19] <Excellency Kelliphan> - Because here, you awoke the truth -
[08:19] * Excellency Kelliphan JAMS the crystal back in her head
[08:20] <Excellency Kelliphan> - because here, in this time, in this place, and in this space a memroy may bloom, even if only for an instant.... -
[08:20] * Excellency Kelliphan raises a hand to the sky, fingers outstretched, light glinting from her fingernails
[08:20] * @Pythia laughs a throathy, hysterically triumphant laugh
[08:21] <Excellency Kelliphan> - **SAILOR GALLIFREY POWER! MAAAKKE-UP!!" -
[08:21] <Rassilon> What... WHAT IS THIS?!
[08:21] * Excellency Kelliphan is now known as Sailor Gallifrey
[08:21] <Sailor Gallifrey> - What is this? -
[08:21] <Sailor Gallifrey> - REVENGE -
[08:22] * Sailor Gallifrey LEAPS Towards Rassilon, who fires a blast from his gauntlrt at her, but the power just seems to curve around her in a corkscrew as she wraps her hand around his throat
[08:23] * Sailor Gallifrey jabs her nails in his throat and begins to send some kind of energy-tendrils into his body
[08:23] * Rassilon chokes, and rasps, and struggles. He will not die here!
[08:24] *** TO BE CONTINUED
[21:56] <Rassilon> You... will not... you... just... a tool... for me.. for what I created...
[21:57] <Rassilon> - My... Son... save me...! -
[21:57] * Rassilon reaches out a hand to the sky
[21:59] * The Fourth Appears and pushes Sailor Gallifrey back with the merest of thoughts.
[22:00] <Sailor Gallifrey> ...
[22:00] <Sailor Gallifrey> Your "son".
[22:00] <Sailor Gallifrey> your "son" whom you restrict with that imprimatur copied from my flesh.
[22:01] <The Fourth> The Imprimatur does not restrict me.
[22:01] <Rassilon> he has evolved beyond it.
[22:02] <The Fourth> Interesting, "Father". That you feared the powers of the Gallifreyans enough to limit them so, yet now, you gloat about them as though this was your design from the start.
[22:03] <@Pythia> Rassilon likes to take the credit for others' work. Be it Gallifreyan or simply Mother Nature.
[22:03] * The Fourth chuckles, amused by this situation
[22:04] <Rassilon> Enough of this game.
[22:07] * Rassilon turns to the Fourth
[22:07] <Rassilon> My son, Gallifrey is mine by right of History. Remove these others from my sight.
[22:08] <@Pythia> What, because you threw me down a mountain?
[22:08] <@Pythia> Or because you butchered a timeless child to create means of social and biological control on the Gallifreyans?
[22:09] <Hazel Ninegate> Or because you manipulated everyone around you into sacrificing themselves so you could stand yourself upon their backs and claim you were the sole architect of Gallifreyan civilisation?
[22:11] <@Pythia> Well...
[22:11] <@Pythia> Let me tell you where your "vector" of history will take you... "Lord" Rassilon.
[22:12] <Rassilon> Spare me your sorcerous blasphemy!
[22:12] <@Pythia> A dead, barren world.
[22:12] <@Pythia> No life remains except re-animated corpses trapped in metallic prisons.
[22:13] <@Pythia> All serving the whims of a madman.
[22:13] * @Pythia SHOWS everyone the vision she sees from the End of Time
[22:14] * Everyone is stunned to silence. There's no doubt that what they are seeing is True.
[22:15] * Intern and a few others have made their way here now as well, in time to see the vision
[22:15] <@> horrible...
[22:15] * @ is now known as The Intern
[22:16] <Rassilon> ...Nonsense. This is an illusion! A Trick of Pythian Sisterhood!
[22:16] <Rassilon> Meant to undermine my authority!
[22:17] <@Pythia> This was the curse I lay upon you that fateful day when you chose to depose me.
[22:17] <@Pythia> It cannot be avoided.
[22:18] * @The Intern starts to cry
[22:18] <@The Intern> ...Is it all for nothhing!?
[22:18] <Thrash> [5] ..damnable cybermen..
[22:18] *** Thrash has moved back to the Ten'ou (Road)House Livingroom
[22:18] <@The Intern> Are we doomed to fight and struggle and carry on and sacrifice just to end up like that?!
[22:18] <Rassilon> Come child, have faith in your father.
[22:19] * @The Intern frowns
[22:19] <Thrash> I've heard words like that before...and I've seen where that leads things
[22:19] <@The Intern> I work for the Celestial Intervention Agency. I was taken in as an orphan during that Time War that you failed to prosecute.
[22:19] <@The Intern> My Father is dead.
[22:20] * @The Intern sounds far angrier than she usually gets.
[22:20] <Rassilon> Ungrateful whelp.
[22:20] * Rassilon turns to the Fourth
[22:21] <Rassilon> Remove these interlopers from my prescence. Then, with your power, we will restore Gallifrey and its place in the universe. None shall dare defy her.
[22:21] * Exeter L. Wakefield really does hear Echoes of Hazel in him
[22:21] <Thrash> do you like that...
[22:22] * The Fourth nods, and turns to the others, eyes glowing red
[22:23] <Exeter L. Wakefield> Paise... er.. Lady Pythia.. what can we do?
[22:23] <@Pythia> The Fourth reprsents the Pinnacle of the Gallifreyan Evolution, unencumbered by the fetters of Rassilon.
[22:23] <@Pythia> You tasted some of that power.
[22:24] * Sailor Gallifrey Warps reality around her and tries to "undo" The Fourth
[22:25] * The Fourth simply grabs her y the top of her head and forcibly undoes her transformation with a thought, then rips the memories that constitute her out of Kelliphan's Imprimatur
[22:26] * Sailor Gallifrey is now known as Excellency Kelliphan
[22:26] * The Fourth then folds those memories up smaller and smaller until they become nulled existences
[22:26] <Thrash> well......that's that
[22:26] <@Pythia> But for good reason, no Time Lord should have that power.
[22:27] <@Pythia> Ever.
[22:27] <Hazel Ninegate> Some of us...
[22:27] <Hazel Ninegate> Were not born weak.
[22:27] <Hazel Ninegate> I understand now.
[22:28] <Hazel Ninegate> The "prize" of this place
[22:28] <Hazel Ninegate> That ancient knowledge... the truth of us and why we hide it...
[22:28] <Hazel Ninegate> why we must never use it...
[22:28] * Hazel Ninegate holds out a hand
[22:28] <Hazel Ninegate> But... sometiimes...
[22:28] <Hazel Ninegate> - THERE IS NO CHOICE -
[22:29] * Hazel Ninegate releases something in her mind and her eyes glow gold
[22:29] <The Fourth> ...
[22:29] <Thrash> .....
[22:29] <Hazel Ninegate> - You may be The Fourth... -
[22:29] <Hazel Ninegate> - But I too have a title before the time of titles... -
[22:30] <Hazel Ninegate> - I AM THE NINTH -
[22:30] * Hazel Ninegate is now known as The Ninth
[22:31] * The Ninth , with a thought, banishes herself and the Fourth from this place, doing battle across all times and places and spaces simultaneously and never
[22:31] <Rassilon> ...
[22:31] * Rassilon starts to realize the odds are shifting unfavorably
[22:32] * Rassilon takes out The Personal Temeportation Device of Rassilon
[22:32] * Rassilon activates it and Flees.
[22:32] * Rassilon is away 
[22:33] <Thrash> ...wait does he seriously call everything after himself
[22:33] * @The Intern just looks at Thrash and the others despondent, with a hopeless expression
[22:34] * There are screams across the firmament as the Forth and the Ninth create, destroy, and uncreate swathes of reality
[22:34] <@The Intern> Is there... no hope for Gallifrey?
[22:34] <Thrash> Intern...
[22:34] * Thrash reaches out a hand and gives her shoulder a squeeze
[22:34] <Thrash> ..there is always hope
[22:34] <Thrash> you just have to make it
[22:35] <@Pythia> I am sorry my child,. but Rassilon sowed those seeds the day he decided to start the Inuitiive revolution. There is no voiding that Gallifrey ends up this way.
[22:35] * @The Intern hears them both and sinks to her knees
[22:35] * Exeter L. Wakefield puts a hand on her shoulder
[22:35] * @The Intern sniffles
[22:35] <Thrash> oh come ON
[22:36] <Thrash> is this what we do?
[22:36] <@The Intern> [22:34] <Thrash> you just have to make it
[22:36] <Thrash> stand here and weep and give into despair
[22:36] <Thrash> we're smarter then this
[22:36] <@The Intern> me quietly sobs, thinking
[22:36] * @The Intern feels the battle of the Gods still going on out there
[22:37] <Thrash> we're better then this
[22:37] * @The Intern closes her eyes
[22:37] <@Pythia> Child.
[22:37] <@Pythia> You don't need to be a God.
[22:37] <@Pythia> You need to be... you.
[22:37] <@Pythia> That is more than enough.
[22:38] * @The Intern 's grief starts to dissipate as she does what she's best at. Thinking.
[22:38] <@The Intern> ....Gallifrey must end up this way.
[22:38] <@Pythia> Yes.
[22:38] <@The Intern> There's no avoiding it.
[22:39] <@Pythia> Correct.
[22:39] * @The Intern stands, and dusts herself off.
[22:39] <@The Intern> You know I just ran in here without thinking and I've just realised this space is completely nonconformant with local spacetime
[22:40] <Thrash> naturally
[22:40] * @Pythia has a bit of a smile at the edge of her lips. "Yes."
[22:40] <@The Intern> Your curse has happened / is happening / will happen / will have been happened all at once
[22:41] <@The Intern> this is gallifrey / is not gallifrey all at once
[22:41] <@Pythia> /m tilts her head but says nothing
[22:41] <@The Intern> I'm not a god.
[22:42] <@The Intern> I don't remember the power of the gods that flows through my viens.
[22:42] <@The Intern> I don't need them.
[22:42] <@The Intern> I am a Time Lord.
[22:42] <@The Intern> And that is _enough to solve this.
[22:43] * @The Intern closes her eyes and concentrates, willing into being a device that she would normally have to spend years building, but in this place thoughts give way to reality very easily
[22:43] <Exeter L. Wakefield> Neminix what are you building?
[22:43] <@The Intern> Oh come now Mister Wakefield.
[22:44] <@The Intern> Surely you recognise a simple quantium vitrtual particle generator and timeline motivator circuit.
[22:44] <Thrash> naturally
[22:44] <Exeter L. Wakefield> Yes but that's used for simulating virtual universe expansion sin't it?
[22:45] <@The Intern> Simulation nothng
[22:45] <@The Intern> This was my science project when I was a child of fifty-three.
[22:45] <@The Intern> But with a bit of modification...
[22:45] * @The Intern starts imagiing more components
[22:46] <@The Intern> We;re going to make history diverge just a bit...
[22:46] <Exeter L. Wakefield> ..Isn't that the timeline of Gallifrey
[22:46] <@The Intern> Yep! But it hasn't started yet. Not here.
[22:46] <@The Intern> Not in this place
[22:47] * @The Intern pointsto it
[22:47] <@The Intern> Lady Pythia, please shwo me on the Timeline where Lord Rassilon Hurt you
[22:47] <@Pythia> have been spejding too much time with Humans
[22:47] * @Pythia indicates the fateful day she was deposed
[22:47] * Thrash just at this point takes out a glass of wine and sips, watching the goings on
[22:48] <@The Intern> _Annd_ a simple graft / transplantation / bifurcation operation...
[22:48] <Exeter L. Wakefield> Did you just split the universe?
[22:49] <@The Intern> Mm-hmm. Well more precisely the Gallifreyan Timeline with the Pythian Curse as the motivational causality factor.
[22:49] * @The Intern points to one branch and then the other
[22:50] <@Pythia> ...
[22:50] <@Pythia> One half inherits the curse and the other...
[22:50] * @The Intern snaps her fingers "exactly"
[22:51] <@The Intern> I have created a second, unfortunately doomed Gallifreyan Timeline which must inherit the preconditions of your curse. The other is "open"
[22:51] <Exeter L. Wakefield> But there is no "fate" either way
[22:51] <@The Intern> Ahh, yes! Well, true!
[22:52] <@The Intern> Gallifrey in the other universe, as a fixed point must experience the fall as motivated by the Pythia. But that isn't to say what happens next.
[22:52] <@The Intern> That's where people and free will intervene!
[22:52] * "Just as you have done here." a Voice resounds
[22:53] * @Pythia is now known as Paisley Pythia Peinforte
[22:53] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte snaps back to normal
[22:53] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Void-chan?
[22:53] * Thrash digs in his pocket.....and pulls out a small chip and nibbles...
[22:53] <@The Intern> Void... who?
[22:53] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Just roll with it
[22:54] * "Lady Intern, you took what was a fait accompli and changed it. Not with the fantastical powers of your predecessors, but the powers and skill of your own education, learning and innate genius."
[22:54] <@The Intern> ...Science, mainly :)
[22:55] * Just so.
[22:55] * Thrash finds a comfortable rock to sit on and watches the goings on
[22:55] * That is the great lesson here. Gallifrey will rise, and Gallifrey will fall, but her people will always restore her, as long as they are pure of hearts."
[22:56] * @The Intern feels a head-pat from somewhere
[22:56] <@The Intern> :3
[22:57] * "The true power lies in your ability to believe in yourself, your friends, and your convictions. To always be open to learning, and growing, and never to fall to despair in the face of 'prophecy' or 'destiny'. All is Will, and all is Change."
[22:58] * The next moment, everyone is standing at the foot of Mt. Plutarch.
[22:58] * The Citadel of the Time Lords stands completely rebuilt
[22:58] <Exeter L. Wakefield> Wait.. what?
[22:58] <Thrash> hm well
[22:59] <@The Intern> <_< I may have tweaked a few variables here and there so the Shobogans who designed the Citadel put in more robust defences and repair systems
[22:59] <Exeter L. Wakefield> That's cheating you know.
[23:00] <@The Intern> I won't tell if you won't?
[23:00] * @The Intern laughs
[23:00] * The Ninth STREAKS down from the sky and craters, goldern energy wafting off of hre- but not regeneration energy
[23:00] * The Ninth is now known as Hazel Ninegate
[23:01] * Hazel Ninegate groans, laying in the crater, smoking
[23:01] <Hazel Ninegate> The Fourth... sleeps again.
[23:01] <Hazel Ninegate> And so too, shall I..I think
[23:01] * Hazel Ninegate passes out, snoring
[23:02] <Exeter L. Wakefield> I wonder if she'll rmemeber what it was like to command the powers of a God
[23:02] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte shrugs
[23:02] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Do you?
[23:02] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte holds his imprimatur in her hand
[23:02] <Exeter L. Wakefield> That's disgusting that needs to be in my brain
[23:03] * @The Intern looks it over curiously
[23:03] <@The Intern> Hmm, it resembles a Sailor Crystal
[23:03] * @The Intern starts ot get a headache
[23:03] <Thrash> hm?
[23:03] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte jams it up Exeter's nose
[23:03] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> That's quite enough of that
[23:03] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Never mind, you lot.
[23:03] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Let's go home.

[20:54] * Kae Peinforte pauses from reading a book on Babylonian Star systems and blinks at Paisley but nods
[20:54] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> [Peinforte Manor] Those are fine, just not the ones with naked people hugging.
[20:55] <Exeter L. Wakefield> [Peinforte Manor] ...Did you really have to put it that way
[20:55] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> [Peinforte Manor] - I'm not parent material -

[20:56] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> [Peinforte Manor] It's going to eb very confusing if there are two Kaelyn Peinfortes running about.
[20:57] <Kae Peinforte> >_> dunno
[20:57] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> [Peinforte Manor] Unless you intend to go through life being referred to as "Mini-K".
[20:58] * Kae Peinforte sticks out her tongue..she doesn't like that
[20:59] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> [Peinforte Manor] Chibi-K? XD

[21:00] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> [Peinforte Manor] Well seriously, this is step one.
[21:00] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> [Peinforte Manor] You're not a copy of big sister Kaelyn any more.
[21:00] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> [Peinforte Manor] From this moment on you're your own person wihh your own destiny.
[21:00] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> [Peinforte Manor] And since you're living with me it's more than likely going to be a ridiculous one.
[21:01] * Kae Peinforte nods!

[21:16] <Exeter L. Wakefield> [Peinforte Manor] You know Paise I walways figured you for someone who would choose names based upon more eosteric principles.
[21:17] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> [Peinforte Manor] Mmm.
[21:17] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> [Peinforte Manor] Well, you see the Peinforte line is Matriarchial.
[21:17] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> [Peinforte Manor] So a good, strong, English name is preferred.
[21:17] <Exeter L. Wakefield> [Peinforte Manor] Isn't Peinforte a french name?

[21:29] <Kae Peinforte> you are? :O
[21:29] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> [Peinforte Manor] Yes. Not the kind that sacked Rome, though. The kind who kies to sit in corners listening to Garbage and non-conforming by being like all the other goths.
[21:30] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> [Peinforte Manor] so you're sure you want black hair?
[21:30] * Kae Peinforte thinks...

[21:33] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte [Peinforte Manor] comes to an agreement with reality and runs kae's hair through her fingers. As she does, Kaee's hair changes from Red to brown-black, the color changing as if by magic

[22:12] * Livia J. Peinforte yawns ><
[22:12] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Livia... it stinss that you lost so many of your memories, but you have to understand you're part of a very strange family now
[22:13] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> So your everyday life will be different to everybody else's

[22:13] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> It'll be exciting, btu scary, too.
[22:13] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> And a bit of a burden at times.

[22:20] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ....God I hope I'm doing the right thing. This isn't like taking in a cat.
[22:21] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I'm fundamentally selfish.
[22:21] <Exeter L. Wakefield> I dispute that
[22:21] <Exeter L. Wakefield> You care quite a bit for other people
[22:21] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Nnngh
[22:21] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> That's the influence of the HOTEL people
[22:21] <Exeter L. Wakefield> Is it a bad thing?
[22:22] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> No... but
[22:22] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> have I changed enough to proerly raise a child?
[22:22] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I barely make it from day to day.
[22:22] <Exeter L. Wakefield> You'll be fine :) We'll be fine.
[22:23] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> <_<
[22:23] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> You know even though I asked you to marry me I never really planned on having children with you.
[22:23] <Exeter L. Wakefield> I wasn't expecting it.
[22:24] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte chuckles to herself
[22:25] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> When Kaelyn (the adult) first showed up I took it fairly easily. She'd already grown and wasn't really reliant upon me for anything.
[22:27] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> But Livia...
[22:28] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> She's going to be moulded by me... by us
[22:28] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte grasps his hand
[22:28] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> That terrifies me more than any eldritch foe.
[22:30] <Exeter L. Wakefield> We'll manage.
[22:30] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I suppose we do have to tie the knot at some point now <_<
[22:31] <Exeter L. Wakefield> I have no objection, btu since when have either of us ever cared about doing anything in the proper order?
[22:31] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> We have to set an example?
[22:32] <Exeter L. Wakefield> An example.
[22:32] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> <_<
[22:33] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Wel don't we? I mean isn't that what people do at times like this?
[22:34] <Exeter L. Wakefield> You're the sort that usually says "f[BLEEP]k 'em" when someone demands something like that from you, though.
[22:34] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Ex I wasn't raised by my parents.
[22:34] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I was raised by a butler
[22:34] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I was left ot my own devices
[22:34] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I was a bookworm, a goth, a punk
[22:35] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I gave no s[BLEEP]ts about others because I had no one to dissapoint.
[22:35] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> So I was free to be as rebellious as I wanted.
[22:35] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> But now, for the first time I need ot think about the impact I'll have on that child.
[22:36] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte grumbles
[22:36] <Exeter L. Wakefield> Or you could just be you and just ofcus on teaching her to be a good person.
[22:36] <Exeter L. Wakefield> I think she loves you for you not some hypothetical perfect standard
[22:37] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> And I want her to be a good person.
[22:37] <Exeter L. Wakefield> You came out okay.
[22:37] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte snuggles close
[22:37] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> You know sometimes I really hate that I like living like this with you
[22:38] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I was so indeoendent before
[22:38] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Sometimes I feel like I'm selling myself out
[22:38] <Exeter L. Wakefield> ...You're the one who wears the pants around here
[22:38] <Exeter L. Wakefield> What Are you talking about
[22:38] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte sighs
[22:39] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> When IW as younger I was absolutely friendless
[22:39] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I had to tough that out by convincing myself I was strong and didn't need anyone in my life.
[22:39] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> And even though Im in a uch better headspace now... that feeling still is there
[22:40] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Like by accepting love I'm somehow weakening myself
[22:40] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte headbutts him lightly
[22:40] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Don't ake it personally. It's not.
[22:40] <Exeter L. Wakefield> I think I understand what you mean.
[22:41] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Of course you do it look me forever to drag you out from your self-made fortress.
[22:42] <Exeter L. Wakefield> Well I was more just done with trying.
[22:42] <Exeter L. Wakefield> Because it never ended well.
[22:42] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> The cynic in me still thinks this won't either.
[22:43] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> But I'm willing to kick her in the arse and just enjoy what I have in the moment. I never wanted to get married because I always felt that when people get married they stop trying.
[22:43] <Exeter L. Wakefield> We're a team
[22:44] <Exeter L. Wakefield> A team of three now XD
[22:44] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Heh, yeah
[22:44] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Oh lord.
[22:44] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> The s[BLEEP]t I am going to have to take from Solarchos.
[22:46] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> v_V
[22:46] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> The s[BLEEP]t I am going to have to take.
[22:46] <Exeter L. Wakefield> Livia is much less rambunctious than the kits?
[22:46] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Well
[22:47] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> When I get too low energy for kid hijinks please tag out with me. Please.
[22:47] <Exeter L. Wakefield> Of course :)

[22:26] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> It was a major disaster and the Sisterhood went to help so I was called in.
[22:27] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Well, unless you know a lot about aiding with regenerations it would have been hard to contribute.
[22:28] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Learned a few thing about Time Lord history best left unsaid.
[22:29] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> It's good to be home, though.

[22:51] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> we found stanley..babbling mad words. I had the men deliver him to the medic. Before he left, he said the strangest thing to me. He stared me in the eyes and said "You have the wolf in you, sir". I fear this war is taking it's toil on the men
[22:53] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> .....
[22:54] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> _you should find ti interesting as well.

[22:57] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> We should be all right, wbut we always hav to be careful.
[22:57] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> I would think I would have nothing to worry about...
[22:57] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> .....small children are easy prey, however
[22:58] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ...Please don't make me more worried than I already am.
[22:58] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> being a mother is always being worried
[22:59] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> I have two..I am always scared for their lives
[22:59] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I'm not mother material.
[23:00] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> none of us are

[23:02] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> ...including a few times when i punched him in the face >_>
[23:02] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Yeah but now that they're... out... you seem to have things under control
[23:04] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> oh yes...I totally have a four year old who can morph into any number of shadow shapes as well as a daughter who broke time when she was born under control
[23:06] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> I'm not at all wrestling with my son to get him to bed, getting him to eat his vegetables, trying to stop him from climbing onto the good china or trying to get my daughter to FINALLY JUST GO TO SLEEP
[23:07] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> <_<
[23:07] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I am losing even more confidence in myself
[23:07] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> would I give it up?
[23:07] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> no
[23:07] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> That's what I admire abotu you.

[23:16] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> I have a new little sister but I suppose you know that already now
[23:17] <The Magistra> Yep. And honestly, if you're afraid of being a bad parent, you're probably not one
[23:18] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> That;s comforting and not at the same time.
[23:19] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> she is trying to say that if you are concerned over doing the best of the child..that means you are a good mother
[23:20] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I get that, but it also means I'm still scared for Livia to make sure she comes up right.
[23:21] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> I and Exeter...will learn to be fine parents

[01:03] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte laughs
[01:03] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> And I'm feeling rather insatiable. I wonder if there's another one.
[01:03] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Btu I must see the wikipedia entry on this thing,.
[01:04] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Much of the budget allegedly went toward paying the salaries of George Peppard and Robert Vaughn
[01:04] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I believe it.
[01:05] <Exeter L. Wakefield> When the original art director for the film was fired, Cameron became responsible for the majority of the film's special effects, or, as Cameron later put it, "production design and art direction".[19] This was Cameron's first "big break" in the entertainment industry, and it helped to propel his career forward
[01:05] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Wow
[01:06] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> The score features several elements that would become regular staples of Horner's many science fiction and adventure film scores. Several fans have noted similarities between these scores and those for later films, such as Krull and Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.
[01:07] <Exeter L. Wakefield> Christopher John reviewed Battle Beyond the Stars in Ares Magazine #5 and commented that "There is a lot to be pointed up in this picture. There is the fact that every different technology shows different lines of development. Every ship and the way it is operated is distinctly unique."[38]
[01:08] <Exeter L. Wakefield> YEs. It was good at that. It felt like StarCon II tehe movie
[01:11] <Exeter L. Wakefield> Still up for more?
[01:12] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I'm pondering whether to reply to that with an enendr::e or to actually find one more to watch
[01:13] <Exeter L. Wakefield> I vote enendré
[01:13] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Heh~ You know it WAS White Day in Japan.

[14:24] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> You're just not looking properly. Did you use the secret door under the Gargoyle?
[14:24] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> that leads to the Alchemist's room
[14:25] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ... the other Gargoyle

[14:44] * Kaelyn P. Peinforte glances back at a small mass of shadow in the corner...and grumbles....the shadow immediately vanishes
[14:46] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ... they do try to get in, don't they.
[14:46] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I had to tell poor Livia to stay away.
[14:47] <Eoria> It is that whole "Forbidden Fruit" aspect. A mystical place where the under 18 crowd can't go?
[14:47] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> 14. Under 14.
[14:47] <Eoria> Oh?
[14:48] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> IF it was under 18 there would be a lot more fluids in here.
[14:48] <Eoria> Fair enough.
[14:49] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ... Other than Ikari Shinji's piss, which is still in the carpets after half a ddecade or more.
[14:49] <Eoria> How did that happen, anyway?
[14:52] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> He used to have a fascination with dispensing The Urination of Justice™om his Mighty Oak™.
[14:56] <Eoria> Hoo boy.
[15:13] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> ..mother, why do i have to be the face of the Peinforte family in the city..why can't YOU do some of the social work?
[15:41] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ...

[15:47] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> hahaha
[15:48] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Welcome to the hell of socialising.
[15:48] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Let's face it, you need it more than I. You're the one with a business empire.
[15:48] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> "Netowrking"
[15:51] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> thankfully they barely have a braincell between them
[15:51] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> they think father is from Ireland for some reason
[15:52] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ....that happens a lot.
[15:52] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte laughs slightly
[15:52] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Your father
[15:52] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> That's interesting.
[15:53] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I'll admit that I was mildly interested in him despite my general loathing of Time Lords at the time.
[15:53] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> So the fact that somehow the universe produced the product of a union between us amusing. And I'm glad you're ehre.
[15:53] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ^here
[15:55] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> indeed
[15:56] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I find it an incredilby irony I ended up with one.
[15:56] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ^incredible
[15:57] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> My world would be a difference place if Phoenix Wright hadn't saddled Edgewoth with more unnecessary feelings than I did.
[16:08] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> don' with you >_>
[16:08] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ....
[16:09] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I've neevr made him dress up like Edgeworth if that's what you mean.
[16:09] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I mean then I'd be Franziska and what would just get gross very uickly.
[16:11] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Plus if I had to work a whip I don't think I could hold back on inflicting damage <_<
[16:11] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte <= may have some suppressed anger issues
[16:12] * Franziska von Karma WHIPS Paisley Pythia Peinforte!

[16:12] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> OW OI I even said it was!
[16:13] <Franziska von Karma> Then why would you assume if your fiancé was dressed as Edgeworth you would have to be ME. Wear a suit and be that dumbkopf Phoenix Wright!
[16:14] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I'M NOT GELLING MY HAIR INTO SPIKES
[16:14] * Franziska von Karma nods respectfully to Kaelyn Peinforte and then stalks off
[16:14] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ...How the f[BLEEP]k did she hear me?
[16:20] <Eoria> That may forever remain a mystery.
[16:24] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> So, apropos of nothing, the 100 folds in a French chef's has symbolise the 100 ways to cook an egg.
[16:30] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> that so?
[16:35] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Yes
[16:51] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> ..why do you know these things
[16:54] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ...I'm an introvery who had no life and basically read every book in the manor library.
[16:54] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ^introvert
[17:07] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> have you ever thought of having a portrait for the family made?
[17:07] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I suppose one is due.
[17:11] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I suppose I can comission Michiru.
[17:12] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> But as she charges by the head it will only be a few of us.
[17:12] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ... afew
[17:12] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Christ, I remember when I thought I would be tghe last.
[17:12] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ^the
[17:15] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> and now you have is that
[17:16] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Very! I can't wrap my head 'round it.
[17:16] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Also the less hard It hink about the exact structure of our family tree now the better.
[17:17] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> But that's old English families for you.
[17:19] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> indeed though....
[17:19] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> here's an odd thought
[17:20] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> we have branch families?
[17:20] * Kaelyn P. Peinforte is on her third beer
[17:20] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ............................
[17:20] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> There are.... rumours of suc.
[17:20] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ^such
[17:20] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Nothing I've ever been able to pin down conclusively, mind.
[17:20] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> It seems that around the 1100s there was something of a split.
[17:21] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> But the details of any issue from that are gone.
[17:21] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> hm...interesting
[17:21] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Maybe.. maybe not.
[17:22] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> You know our family legacy.
[17:22] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> A branch family might not be a good thing.
[17:24] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> true
[17:24] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> .....did we chase everyone out of here?
[17:24] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte shrugs
[17:24] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Whoever wants to be here can be here as long as they're of age.
[17:25] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I'm used to being left alone so
[17:25] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte says that a bit bitterly

[17:33] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I'd forgotten about that
[17:34] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Do it a little, a buzz would be good but not piss drunk
[17:34] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte takes a beer as well
[17:34] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I don't have an immunity but the Karnians taught me enough biocontrol to do much the same.

[19:17] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Any other details?
[19:17] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> only that he feels like he has to go T_T
[19:18] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> You know...
[19:18] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> he's part Yaijinden
[19:19] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> And didn't Yaijinden have some kind of connection to Galaxy Cauldron?
[19:20] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> ...yes I..think so
[19:22] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> b..but I love him and don't want him to go away foreverT_T
[19:23] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Mmm.
[19:23] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I very much doubt he would want to go away from you forever.
[19:23] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> This was a boy who forced his own growth so he could be with you.
[19:24] * Kaelyn P. Peinforte sniffles and nods slowly
[19:27] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Plus, it's not like the Cauldron is a place where there's no help to be had.
[19:27] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Remember, Sailor Corps Base is there.
[19:28] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> And we have friends who work there.
[19:28] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> so I..I shouldn't worry?
[19:29] * Kaelyn P. Peinforte is in super vulnerable mode right now
[19:29] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte hugs her loosely from the side
[19:29] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> No. Not about him not loving you, anyway.
[19:30] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> This family is neck-deep in the supernatural
[19:30] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Strange compulsions and attractions are par for the course.
[19:30] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> The trick is working together to overcome them.
[19:37] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> right?
[19:37] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte pokes her nose lightly
[19:44] * Kaelyn P. Peinforte wrinkles her nose fora moment in a childish way
[19:47] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte giggles
[19:55] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Feeling any better, love?
[19:56] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> ...a little yes
[20:02] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Good.
[20:02] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> So let's change topics for now.
[20:02] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Ask me anything™
[20:04] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte>
[20:05] * Kaelyn P. Peinforte asked the most private and embarssing question she can think of...
[20:06] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte gives an equally private and embarrassign answer!
[20:06] * Kaelyn P. Peinforte turns red in the face from that
[20:09] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> did you ever have to play sport?
[20:09] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte snorts
[20:09] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> When I was at Oxford
[20:09] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> shockingly, I was quote good at it. Too good. I had to stop.
[20:09] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> ..seriously?
[20:10] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Baseball, Football, Cricket, anything requiring knowing when to catch somethingg...
[20:10] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Because I sort of have the ability to "look ahead" slightly
[20:10] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> so it was too easy to be hyper-competent.
[20:10] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Ididn't want to draw attention.
[20:10] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I did stick with Archery.
[20:11] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Would it suprise you to know I used to fence against Hazel Ninegate back at Universirty?
[20:11] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Back before she'd revealed who she really was.
[20:12] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> She is insanely good with a foil.
[20:13] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> you two seem to have quite the link
[20:14] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> We were "Friends"
[20:14] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Though now I wonder how much of that was just her tryign to get close so she could eventually infiltrate the HOTEL.
[20:16] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> I had no friends
[20:17] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ....
[20:18] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I... had two.
[20:18] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Both at Oxford.
[20:18] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> One was HAzel -- and we know that was probably a lie
[20:18] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> The other...
[20:18] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte goes quiet
[20:20] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> you know the story of just how it is I ended up training with the Sisterhood of Karn?
[20:20] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte takes a stiff drink
[20:21] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte decides "f[BLEEP]k it" and makes it a double
[20:21] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> no
[20:23] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Well, there's two parts to it. One that most know - namely that looking in omy late father's journals that MAtsuo helped me decipher, I discovered our family had been under a generational curse from Hastur the Unspeakable and I had to either fight him or become his spiritual bride at the age of 16, or go mad.
[20:24] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Those who know me know I chose to fight and that's how the Sisters found me, as they were also gearing up to battle him.
[20:24] * Kaelyn P. Peinforte nods
[20:24] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> But... there was a night... after I had learned the truth... when I had to decide what path to take.
[20:24] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Surrender? Submit?
[20:25] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Risk it all on a desperate gamble using the knowledge of the Pythia Fiona Peinforte had writren down ten generations prior?
[20:25] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I... didn't have the bottle
[20:25] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I was going to give up and give in.
[20:25] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte drinks again
[20:25] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> What I'm going to tell you...
[20:26] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ...only Exeter knows. And even then because I couldn't hideit from him. Not the way we're connected.
[20:26] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> So please don't share it. It's not something I duscuss. Ever.
[20:26] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ...You may have noticed I have a very wary, almost hateful relationship with most of the gods I encounter.
[20:27] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> It's not because of Fenric, the Wofl that runs in our blood.
[20:27] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> yes
[20:27] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> It's because...
[20:27] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> oh?
[20:27] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte swallws a bit and drinks again and just wipes some tears soming unbiddden
[20:28] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I had a friend when I went to Oxford
[20:28] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> ...
[20:28] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> He was a loner, like me
[20:28] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> We had finally got to talking
[20:28] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> His family was deep into religion. Old Time Religion.
[20:28] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> But over the years the family had stopped practicing
[20:29] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> They had forgotten their connection
[20:29] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> But blood debts estabished centuries ago still existed.
[20:29] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> And one day, as with all debts
[20:29] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> The Gods decided to collect.
[20:30] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> To that end, they posseesed my friend's mother.
[20:30] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Just talking at first.
[20:30] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Channeling.
[20:30] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> At first, it was a boon. They told her all manner of things outside the ken of normal human knowledge.
[20:31] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Useful things. When to invest in stocks. When to move to avoid disaster.
[20:31] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Things that helped my friend's family become wealthy and propersous.
[20:31] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> From dirt-poor immigrants they had become capitalists of the highest order in less than a year.
[20:32] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> My friend was... dubious about the whole connection and tried to stay away from it as much as possible. Though obviously he benefitted. He was able to afford the education needed to come to Oxford.
[20:33] * Kaelyn P. Peinforte nods
[20:33] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> In reality, like me, he was running from a world that had suddenly gone upside down for him.
[20:33] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> The familiar had become strange and unnatural and like nothing he was ever prepared for,
[20:34] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ...And his mother kept pushing him to have a stronger connection. To embrace this religion that had brought them prosperity.
[20:34] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> And... so pushed, he complied. I of course, knew none of this.
[20:34] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Over time though, the information recieved lowered in quality.
[20:34] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Was the provider of this data different, or now just playing around? Who knows
[20:35] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> But the family was hooked.
[20:35] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> They were afraid to think for themselves
[20:35] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> To act for themselves
[20:35] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> They wanted the Gods to direct them
[20:35] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> and so they did whatever the gods asked to try and get more morsels of advantage.
[20:36] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> They sacrificed animals. Did ceremonies. Whatever was asked.
[20:36] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> And, then... my friend started getting hurt.
[20:36] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Ailment after ailment with no known phyiscal cause
[20:36] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Doctors could find nothing wrong.
[20:36] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I of course hadn't yet learned anything about these sort of things. I was mytified.
[20:37] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> His family jus chaled it up to tests of faith
[20:37] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> The Gods then asked for more things to be done so they could lift this curse that apparently others of their number had been allowed to emplace.
[20:37] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> The symptoms would abate, then return.
[20:38] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Then, on the day I found out the truth about myself... my friend told me the truth about himself and his family
[20:38] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> ...
[20:38] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I didn't know what the f[BLEEP]k to think. My world was imploding and this was another dfose of madness on the cake
[20:38] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I pushed him away in confused anger
[20:38] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Thought it was Hastur f[BLEEP]king with me
[20:39] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Then, I realised I had been wrong more than likely
[20:39] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Thatr afternoon I went to his house to try and talk to him, to apologise
[20:39] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ....
[20:39] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> He was hanging from a rope.
[20:39] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte takes another f[BLEEP]king drink
[20:40] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Had I just f[BLEEP]king not been full of myself...
[20:40] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> and my problems...
[20:40] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> maybe he wouldn't have given in to them driving him mad.
[20:40] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> At that point, I think I went mad as well.
[20:41] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> His mother, full on possessed, mocked me with the voiceo f Hastur
[20:41] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> And I swore at her and vowed to burn everything down.
[20:41] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I think the Pthia was reaching out through me even then
[20:42] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> That's when I made up my mind and made my way to KArn.
[20:42] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> And I have hated those.. beings ever since. For treating humans like toys.
[20:42] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte throws a can against the wall
[20:42] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte brings her head down to her knees and sobs
[20:42] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> ..I'm sorry mother
[20:43] * Kaelyn P. Peinforte tries to pull her into a hug
[20:43] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte lets her hug her
[20:43] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> So yeah... mum has issues
[20:44] * Kaelyn P. Peinforte just holds the hug
[20:45] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte keeps crying
[20:45] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I have always hated myself for that day
[20:46] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> ..oh mother...
[20:48] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte eventually regains sher composure
[20:50] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Thanks for listneing.
[20:51] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> It feels oddly good to let that out.
[20:51] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> of course
[20:52] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> I am surprised everyone puts up with me..after everything i've done..including the youth candy...oh by the way..i am getting rid of those
[20:52] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Meh, we all love you.
[20:53] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> there has been enough strangeness as is...i've kept a few samples just in case
[20:53] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Good girl.
[20:53] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Never throw away something useful.
[20:54] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> you never know!
[20:55] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> might have to keep an errant mother under control *laughs*
[20:55] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Bah, I've had quite enough ot being c ahild thanks XD
[20:55] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> I think everyone has
[20:57] * Kaelyn P. Peinforte streaches
[21:06] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> How goes?
[21:07] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> hm it goes
[21:08] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> I think the drink is wearing off
[21:10] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Ahh, well I won't tell anytone that embarrassing thing you told me.
[21:10] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte grins mischeviously
[21:11] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> You were so out of it you probably don't even rmeember telling me~
[21:13] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> ..what was it
[21:13] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Oh, now I promised to never tell~
[21:15] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> ...tell me..mother..what did i say
[21:22] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte thumbs her nose
[21:23] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> ..mother
[21:23] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> - tell me! -
[21:24] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte laughs
[21:24] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> What do you think you told me?
[21:25] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> didn't tell you..THAT..did I?
[21:25] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Wht... erm... that was that again~?
[21:28] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> ......are you seriously trying to kid me
[21:28] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte keeps a straight face. her plan to get KAelyn to tell her something secret is so close to working
[21:28] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Well I can't verify if the thing you told me was that thing unless you tell me, right?
[21:28] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> 'Tis only logical.
[21:30] * Kaelyn P. Peinforte whispers it ><
[21:33] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> O_o
[21:33] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ...yeah that was it.
[21:33] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> That's the one.

[21:33] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> you didn't know did you
[21:33] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> you gave that look
[21:34] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte grins a cheshire cat grin

[21:42] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> It is good to see you.
[21:42] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I really do have to make more of an effort to visit.
