Apr 12 Pt 1

[17:16] Shadowcaller: (Arik enters Ai's room.)
[17:17] Happy: (without knocking?)
[17:18] Shadowcaller: (I guess he knocks first then.)
[17:18] Shadowcaller: "May I enter?"
[17:19] Happy: (nonsense reply posted)
[17:20] Happy: "Of course, Arik. I'm glad to have the chance to speak with you."
[17:21] Shadowcaller: "Hm, very well…" He enters the room
[17:21] Happy: (Hmm… how would Ai look? O.o)
[17:22] Shadowcaller: (No idea… I guess he looks like Cessie since he wants to protect her or something.)
[17:22] Happy: (But Ai can't read Arik)
[17:23] Murska: (Responded.)
[17:23] Murska: (or trying to)
[17:23] Murska: (-.-)
[17:24] Shadowcaller: (Well… how do Ai want to look then? You decide how he looks.)
[17:24] Happy: (Um… does he have a 'default' look for situations like this?)
[17:24] Shadowcaller: (Mabe, I'm not sure.)
[17:25] Murska: (finally it posted)
[17:25] Happy: (awesome!)
[17:25] Shadowcaller: (How would a creature of desire look liek?)
[17:25] Shadowcaller: *like
[17:25] Shadowcaller: (Maybe shifting between many forms?)
[17:25] Happy: (I guess he'll be in his beautiful woman guise?)
[17:25] Murska: (Feel free to join our argument, SC. :P)
[17:25] Murska: (We're both daybaned so it doesn't matter which side.)
[17:26] Shadowcaller: (Could work, eh, I have nothing to add to your silly disscussion.)
[17:29] Shadowcaller: (Anyway, I guess he assumes beautiful woman form, even thought Arik don't really desire it.)
[17:29] Happy: (Yes)
[17:29] Happy: "Please, sit down. Is there anything you desire?"
[17:30] Happy: (more silly answer)
[17:30] Shadowcaller: "Yes, I want to know if I can trust you servant? Can you keep your promises?"
[17:32] Happy: "It is rarely desirable to break one's word," Ai answers.
[17:33] Shadowcaller: "ANd that is *my* desire, don't forget that servant, the only reason I even want to talk with you is that I know that your kind can keep secrets, if that is the secret keepers desire."
[17:34] Happy: "Certainly."
[17:35] Shadowcaller: Arik appears to relax "Very well, nothing in this disscussion will leave this room."
[17:37] Happy: "As you desire."
[17:38] Shadowcaller: "Okay then, I have… seen things, I'm starting to doubt…"
[17:39] Shadowcaller: "I saw my sisters mind today, I saw myself within it."
[17:39] Happy: "And you found this troubling?"
[17:41] Shadowcaller: "One could say that… the version of me, inside her head, is that how she see me servant? Do you know anything of the secrets of the mind?"
[17:42] Happy: "I have seen inside many minds. People often see distorted views of other people, especially someone about whom they feel strong emotions."
[17:43] Shadowcaller: "But that is how she see me right? Its so different…"
[17:44] Happy: "And this disturbs you?"
[17:45] Shadowcaller: "…yes, it reminds me about how… I was, and how much different I have become."
[17:46] Shadowcaller: "I want to be her guardian, I want to be the one who protects her from all the dangers of this world."
[17:48] Happy: "I can see that, Arik."
[17:49] Shadowcaller: "Have I failed? I have so many… differnt goals now. Have I really changed that much?"
[17:50] Happy: "Your sister is safe. She clearly is fond of you. I would not say that you have failed."
[17:51] Shadowcaller: "But, I'm not him, I'm not that person she sees in her mind."
[17:51] Murska: (I'm leading the argument! :P)
[17:51] Happy: "What did you see?"
[17:52] Shadowcaller: "I saw… the person I want to be, the one who takes care of her, I didn't see myself thought."
[17:54] Happy: "But if you want to be that person, then what is stopping you? I can help you fulfill that desire."
[17:54] Shadowcaller: "…you can? How would you do this servant?"
[17:54] Happy: (my clever retort will win the day)
[17:56] Happy: "By removing the barriers between you and your desires. For most people, the barrier is simply fear. But I don't know what it is in your case. Your mind is closed to me."
[17:57] Shadowcaller: "I am two persons servant, I am Arik, the brother but I'm also Necroticus the lich."
[17:58] Shadowcaller: "I no longer know who of them I want to be…"
[17:58] Happy: "Would you like me to find out for you?"
[17:59] Shadowcaller: "Could you do that servant? Could you really see that?"
[18:01] Happy: "Nega gives me that ability in order to help me fulfill my purpose. But you would have to open your mind to me."
[18:04] Shadowcaller: "I want to know, but I have already opened my mind to one god today, you are bound by my desire of course?"
[18:11] Happy: "Of course."
[18:12] Shadowcaller: "Then do it, I will open your mind to you, I will do anything to know…"
[18:12] Happy: Ai looks inside Arik's mind.
[18:18] Shadowcaller: He can see a large conflict, its hard to see, but there are two clear sides inside his head, the ones he have talked about
[18:19] Happy: What does the lich side want?
[18:19] Shadowcaller: Power, to live forever, control
[18:19] Happy: Control of what?
[18:20] Shadowcaller: Everything
[18:20] Happy: Including Cessie?
[18:20] Shadowcaller: Yes
[18:22] Happy: And what would he make her do?
[18:22] Shadowcaller: Be like him
[18:23] Happy: Become a lich?
[18:23] Shadowcaller: Yes
[18:23] Happy: And if she refuses?
[18:24] Shadowcaller: Then its not control her enough
[18:24] Shadowcaller: *controlling
[18:24] Happy: And he would force it on her?
[18:25] Shadowcaller: No, you can't force persons to become liches, they must be willing
[18:25] Shadowcaller: Otherwise it would only like to contol her
[18:26] Happy: But the other side wants to protect her
[18:27] Shadowcaller: Control and protection can be one thing…
[18:27] Happy: And allow her to be happy?
[18:27] Shadowcaller: Yes, the other side would protect her and allowe her to be happy
[18:28] Happy: Even if it means she grows closer to Aegnor than to him?
[18:30] Shadowcaller: Yes, the other side is willing to leave her, jsut to protect her from the lich side
[18:30] Happy: ooh, civil war
[18:30] Happy: And which desire is stronger?
[18:30] Shadowcaller: 'just
[18:30] Shadowcaller: The lich right now
[18:31] Shadowcaller: The other side is struggeling against it right now thought
[18:35] Happy: And can Ai influence these desires?
[18:36] Shadowcaller: It will be hard, the lich side is obsessed with control
[18:37] Happy: then can he strengthen the human side?
[18:39] Shadowcaller: Not like this, something else needs to be done
[18:40] Happy: Does Ai know what he could do?
[18:40] Shadowcaller: SPeak with him. or find someone that could affect him
[18:44] Happy: Ai withdraws from Arik's mind, and, without realizing it, changes forms to look like Cessie. "There is much conflict within you. It isn't good for you."
[18:44] Shadowcaller: "You wear my sisters form…"
[18:45] Happy: "Do I? Does it bother you?"
[18:48] Shadowcaller: "A bit… why did you assume her form?"
[18:49] Happy: Ai consciously shifts back. "It is part of my nature to assume the form which most closely matches your desires."
[18:50] Shadowcaller: "I want to be close to her… I am very conflicted right now, I think I just need to return to the air-ship, I need to think…"
[18:51] Happy: "I felt your conflict. Both sides of you want to protect her, they just want it in different ways. What would you desire of me?"
[18:52] Shadowcaller: "Not telling her, not yet, I'm the one that should do it."
[18:54] Shadowcaller: "This conversation won't leave this room, do you understand servant?"
[19:00] Happy: "I will not betray your trust, Arik. I could not go against your desires that way. But you must know that of your conflicting desires, I can only help you with one of them. I am not permitted to aid one person's desires at the expense of another's."
[19:02] Shadowcaller: "I- understand, I think I need to leave now, we need to get on the air ship… we can't stay here."
[19:02] Happy: "I am ready to leave."
[19:03] Shadowcaller: "Then lets, I can't stay at this place any longer…"
