Exodus 37

[23:49] Happy: [03:44] Happy: 5: "I'm scared"
[03:45] Shadowcaller: "You don't need to be, together, we don't need to fear anything."
[03:46] Shadowcaller: "As long we got each other and our friends, what would we be afraid of?"
[03:53] Shadowcaller: (Need to sleep?)
[03:54] Happy: "But he's here. He'll take you."
[03:54] Shadowcaller: "You know me Aegnor, I have magic, I can defend myself."
[03:55] Happy: (yeah, falling asleep)
[03:55] Shadowcaller: "And with you by my side, what do I have to fear?"
[23:49] Shadowcaller: (gah, cheese!)
[23:49] Happy: 5 doesn't seem terribly convinced, but he doesn't contradict Cessie again.
[23:51] Shadowcaller: "Did you see which direction he went Aegnor?"
[23:52] Happy: "No. But I heard him. He went that way." 5 points further down the corridor, into the dark.
[23:53] Shadowcaller: She looks at him in a very determined way "I need to follow him Aegnor, I think he is doing bad things to you."
[23:54] Shadowcaller: (I guess the cheese can be forgiven since she is talking to a child…)
[23:54] Shadowcaller: (Sort of.)
[23:55] Murska: (busy for a while » sowwy)
[23:55] Shadowcaller: (Don't worry, you can come back later on. Playing a match?)
[23:57] Happy: 4 whirls on the others. "This is your fault. You and your lax security."
[23:59] Happy: He disappears into the darkness.
[00:01] Shadowcaller: "Wait!" Cessie takes a few steps forward, letting her lightspell grow brigher
[00:02] Happy: 1: "You won't be able to catch him."
[00:02] Shadowcaller: She lets of a sigh and turns to the others, "Is he always like this? Do he even like me?"
[00:03] Happy: "That's now what he's there for," 2 says grimly.
[00:03] Happy: *not
[00:03] Happy: "I don't like you going any further."
[00:05] Shadowcaller: "Like it or not, it needs to be done Aegnor. I need to wake you up."
[00:07] Happy: He sighs. "Let's go then. Strict marching order."
[00:08] Happy: 5: "Do I have to go?"
[00:09] Shadowcaller: "In *that* direction?" She remarks rather snidely pointing at the same direction pointed out by 5 (this is aimed at 2)
[00:11] Shadowcaller: Then she turns back to 5 changing act completely "Only if you want to Aegnor?" She says in a very motherly tone
[00:11] Happy: 2: "We have to check it out. And if you insist on coming…"
[00:11] Happy: 5 shakes his head no.
[00:13] Shadowcaller: She smiles at 5 and gives him a quick hug "Stay here then, I will be back soon enough."
[00:14] Happy: /No, you won't/ he thinks as he hugs her back.
[00:15] Happy: 2 puts himself first, then 1, Cessie, and 3. And you head off in the direction pointed out. Which is also the direction 4 went.
[00:18] Shadowcaller: As they leave 5 behind she remarks, "If I had not entered, you would still have been at the same places you were before. I know this is a problem you can't solve on your own, it might even be supernatural in nature."
[00:21] Shadowcaller: (in a "know-it-all" manner os speaking)
[00:24] Shadowcaller: "I find it strange that such a… wrongness would take a humanoid form, even in a mindscape. But I guess we will see soon enough."
[00:25] Happy: (pause for Murska)
[00:36] Shadowcaller: .
[00:39] Happy: lalala
[00:41] Happy: As they progress down the corridor, there is sounds of a scuffle ahead.
[00:42] Shadowcaller: Cessie stops "What was that?"
[00:42] Happy: You can only see shadows at the edge of where the light spell extends
[00:43] Murska: 2 speeds up. 'It is not good.'
[00:43] Murska: They hear a louder growl.
[00:43] Shadowcaller: "Is there something I should know?"
[00:44] Shadowcaller: Cessie summons a air elemental next to her
[00:45] Happy: As you come closer, you can make out that 4 is fighting with another Aegnor.
[00:46] Shadowcaller: (As in… epic karate scene?:P)
[00:46] Murska: (4 isn't gonna go for flashy. Just dirty and effective.)
[00:46] Shadowcaller: (Sorry, just watched a lot of bad fight movies^^)
[00:47] Shadowcaller: (And this mysterious other Aegnor?)
[00:48] Happy: He looks similar to 1, though it's hard to see in the dim lighting.
[00:49] Shadowcaller: So, they are punching each other? Details about the scene?
[00:50] Happy: 4 seems to be winning.
[00:50] Shadowcaller: Are they bleeding? How much are they hurting each other?
[00:51] Shadowcaller: Sharp objects? Anyone picking up a rock?
[00:52] Happy: Aegnor 6 doesn't appear to have any weapons.
[00:52] Shadowcaller: But 4 dose?
[00:57] Shadowcaller: Cessie will send the elemental between them in either case I guess
[00:57] Happy: (pause for Murska)
[01:06] Happy: .
[01:14] Shadowcaller: .
[01:14] Murska: 4 has a dagger out
[01:15] Shadowcaller: o.O
[01:16] Shadowcaller: "What in- Stop!"
[01:16] Shadowcaller: The air elemental swirls between them, focusing on Aegnor 4, trying to take away his knife by well blowing at it I guess, knocking him down
[01:16] Murska: The others rush there aswell
[01:18] Shadowcaller: (Um, how are the two figthers reacting?)
[01:19] Happy: 6 takes the opportunity to try and get away from 4, rushing towards the others.
[01:20] Shadowcaller: Towards Cessie too then I assume?
[01:21] Murska: 4 tries to hit the elemental a few times. 'I'm the keeper, stay away from him.'
[01:21] Happy: Yes, towards Cessie.
[01:23] Shadowcaller: What are the others doing?
[01:23] Shadowcaller: Do they look like they are going to stop him?
[01:23] Murska: 2: 'What is going on here?'
[01:24] Murska: 1 tries to put a hand in 6's way
[01:24] Happy: 6: He just attacked me.
[01:25] Murska: 1: 'What are you doing back here anyway?'
[01:25] Shadowcaller: Cessie looks profoundly confused "Aegnor?" She asks, staring at the new-comer
[01:26] Happy: 6: "I needed to be here."
[01:27] Shadowcaller: "Why do he think your dangerous? And why in Artaris name are you attacking each other?!"
[01:28] Murska: 4 looks at the group suspiciously. 'YOU distracted me so he could sneak back here.'
[01:28] Shadowcaller: "Have you gone mad? Do this happend a lot around here? This is insane."
[01:30] Shadowcaller: She seems rather upset
[01:31] Happy: 6: "I'm sorry Cessie."
[01:31] Happy: He pulls out a flute and plays softly.
[01:32] Shadowcaller: (And… what happends?)

[01:34] Shadowcaller: Shadowcaller säger:
"Have you gone mad? Do this happend a lot around here? This is insane."
She seems rather upset
Happy säger:
6: "I'm sorry Cessie."
He pulls out a flute and plays softly.
Shadowcaller säger:
(And… what happends?)

[01:34] Murska: (…?)
[01:34] Shadowcaller: (you dropped.)
[01:34] Murska: (oh.)
[01:35] Murska: Aegnor 1 looks somewhat disapproving. 4 looks at all of them, stepping away from the elemental and into the shadows.
[01:37] Shadowcaller: (Is this while Aegnor 6 plays a flute? What is he playing?)
[01:38] Happy: It's a low, haunting tune. Not one Cessie recognizes.
[01:40] Shadowcaller: "I don't understand, what are you sorry for?" She looks at him with her head titled to the side "Can somebody *please* tell me whats going on here?"
[01:41] Happy: He stops playing. "Sorry you were upset."
[01:41] Happy: 3:
[01:41] Murska: 2: 'So what exactly happened here?' He shouts towards 4: 'You there, get here aswell.'
[01:41] Murska: 4 stays silent
[01:42] Shadowcaller: "That… I'm sorry, but I still have no idea whats going on here."
[01:44] Happy: 6: "I came to see /him/, and he" *pointing at 4* "attacked me."
[01:44] Shadowcaller: (Hm, was that song supposed to have some sort of effect?)
[01:45] Shadowcaller: Cessie turns to 4 "And whats your version?"
[01:46] Murska: He's still hidden, silent.
[01:46] Happy: No effect that you noticed.
[01:48] Shadowcaller: Rolling her eyes, sighting, she turns to 6 again, looking at him blankly "So, who are you? Why do you think he attacked you?"
[01:48] Happy: "Because he's nuts?"
[01:48] Shadowcaller: /All these Aegnor faces… this is going to give me issues somehow…/
[01:49] Shadowcaller: "Um, thats the only reason?"
[01:49] Happy: "I think maybe he doesn't want anyone else to see /him/"
[01:51] Shadowcaller: "Who's him? And could you all please stop speaking in riddles? Your giving me a lot of information completly without contex here…"
[01:55] Murska: 'He's the mad one.'
[01:56] Shadowcaller: "The mad one?… There is a mad one?"
[01:56] Happy: 3: "I only know he's kept locked away."
[01:57] Murska: 'We don't let him out unless we have to. When the keeper gets strong enough to.'
[01:58] Shadowcaller: "And what dose this mad one do?"
[02:03] Murska: 'Takes over. I don't even know what he does after that, but it goes away after a while.'
[02:05] Shadowcaller: "Takes over?…" Cessie looks at 4 "Like you did?" She appears startled, not really sure what to think
[02:06] Murska: (4 is, still, not visible)
[02:06] Shadowcaller: (Oh, I meant 3.)
[02:06] Happy: 3 "I don't know."
[02:07] Shadowcaller: "You never told me about this…"
[02:08] Shadowcaller: "Dose it happend often? Have it happend since I met you?" Her voice have a frighten tone to it
[02:08] Murska: 'Not very often. When it is needed.'
[02:09] Shadowcaller: "…and when is that?"
[02:10] Murska: 'When the keeper is strong enough.'
[02:11] Shadowcaller: "Err… not to sound repeating or anything, but when is the keeper strong enough?"
[02:11] Shadowcaller: (Answers need more contex:P)
[02:12] Murska: 'Whenever he is?'
[02:12] Happy: 3: "What makes him stronger then?"
[02:13] Murska: 1 turns to them. 'When things aren't suitable for us others.'
[02:14] Shadowcaller: (Oh dear…) "…yeah, and when aren't things suitable for you? I don't know so much about mindscapes so I'm not really sure what can effected the mind in that way. But all this… someone takes over all of you?"
[02:16] Murska: 1: 'One of us gets stronger when things happen outside which suit him.'
[02:17] Shadowcaller: "I see… any idea when that is? When you get angry? Depressed?"
[02:18] Murska: 'If Keeper gets too strong, he'll let him out.'
[02:18] Happy: 6: "And I don't think it's right for him to be locked up."
[02:19] Shadowcaller: "But didn't you just say he takes you all over?"
[02:20] Murska: 'For a time, yeah.'
[02:21] Shadowcaller: "But isn't that… bad? If your calling him the mad one… why haven't you told me about him? What is he? Some kind of psycho part of you?"
[02:23] Murska: 'I just did? He's the mad one.'
[02:23] Murska: 'Always locked up.'
[02:25] Shadowcaller: "Aegnor, we have been together for months and you have never told me about that side of you…"
[02:27] Murska: (Well it's not really fair blaming a personification of some part of his mind :P)
[02:28] Happy: (That's /always/ Cessie's question though 'Why didn't you tell me?!')
[02:28] Shadowcaller: (Well, she asks the Aegnor in general.)
[02:28] Happy: 3 whirls on the others. "You didn't tell her? Why didn't you tell her? Now she's going to hate us!"
[02:29] Shadowcaller: (Well, if you discovered that your boyfriend had some secret psyho part of him… you would like to learn why, and also be kind of freaked out.)
[02:29] Happy: (He did warn her that he wouldn't want her going into his mind in case she saw some part of him she didn't like)
[02:30] Murska: (not that he knows much about the berserking and what he does he's already told)
[02:30] Shadowcaller: (Well, she didn't know that.)
[02:31] Shadowcaller: (…okay, I need to stop using the word "well".)
[02:31] Happy: (well, is she going to stand there and demand an investigation of stuff in the past, or is she going to worry about the present and future?)
[02:31] Shadowcaller: (She is profoundly confused at the moment as I said:P)
[02:32] Shadowcaller: (Cessie is not really sure what she wants to do…)
[02:32] Happy: [02:28] Happy: 3 whirls on the others. "You didn't tell her? Why didn't you tell her? Now she's going to hate us!"
[02:32] Happy: 6 turns to Cessie: "You need to let him out."
[02:33] Murska: 2: 'What? Why?'
[02:34] Shadowcaller: "I don't know what I want with him until I meet him, I can't make decision like this. She takes a deep breath, trying to make sense to everything that she have just experienced. It feels like she is in some strange dream of some kind.
[02:35] Shadowcaller: She turns to 4 "I need to see him."
[02:35] Happy: 6 tries to take both of Cessie's hands in his and look into her eyes. "You're here to heal us, right?"
[02:35] Murska: 4 is STILL away <>
[02:35] Shadowcaller: (Ah.)
[02:35] Shadowcaller: (Ignore that part then, but she still said that.)
[02:40] Shadowcaller: She shakes her head stepping backwards, away from him "Aegnor please… I'm utterly confused right now. Trying to make sense of you…" She stops looking down at the floor. "Yes." She looks up at 6 again "I want to heal you Aegnor, but I don't know how, it turns out there is a lot I don't know about you." The last is said in a very quiet voice.
[02:41] Shadowcaller: She looks kind of blue
[02:41] Murska: 2 peers further into the darkness. 'Where did he go…'
[02:42] Happy: 6: "Can we at least see him? That's what I came to do."
[02:43] Shadowcaller: "Where did you come from?"
[02:43] Happy: "Where did we all come from?"
[02:44] Shadowcaller: "I mean…" She pauses "…why did you try to free him now?"
[02:45] Happy: "I think it's wrong for him to be locked away."
[02:45] Shadowcaller: "Yes, but why now at this special moment?"
[02:47] Happy: "Does it matter?"
[02:49] Shadowcaller: "Maybe not… but I'm…" Another paus "I'm just trying to make sense of things okay? Ever since I came here, I have been very confused, sad and upset. I need something to hold on to, some kind of logic…"
[02:49] Happy: "Do you trust me?"
[02:50] Shadowcaller: She sigh "Yes, I do trust you Aegnor. Its just a bit hard with you having mad secret sides of yourself. It scares me a bit."
[02:52] Shadowcaller: ("a bit" is a bit of understatement >.>)
[02:54] Happy: "Then come with me."
[02:56] Shadowcaller: She looks up at him "Do you promise me that I will be less confused if I follow you?"
[02:58] Happy: He looks straight in her eyes. "Yes."
[02:58] Murska: 'Well, we could go see it. The thing did come this way.'
[02:59] Shadowcaller: "Then I will come with you…" She takes his hand (that I assume is still streched out.)
[03:00] Happy: His hand is very hot.
[03:00] Happy: He leads her further down the passage.
[03:00] Murska: The others follow.
[03:03] Shadowcaller: Well, she follows. She looks at him suspiciously, not really wanted to be lead every time she moves around her, but with her luck and this place apperently changing space, she would just get lost
[03:04] Happy: (is there still a big chat?)
[03:04] Shadowcaller: (Nope.)
[03:11] Shadowcaller: ..
[03:12] Happy: (waiting for Murska)
[03:12] Shadowcaller: (ah.)
[03:23] Shadowcaller: ..
[03:28] Happy: Cessie sees a dark, heavy cell door, with a small barred window.
[03:29] Shadowcaller: "Is he in there?"
[03:29] Murska: 'Yeah.'
[03:29] Murska: Cessie hears the growling coming from inside.
[03:30] Shadowcaller: She very carefully peers inside the cell door
[03:31] Murska: She sees darkness, and, suddenly, two red eyes staring at her.
[03:33] Shadowcaller: Startled, Cessie leans backwards, away from the celldoor "Aegnor? Are you there?" She carefully asks
[03:35] Murska: She just hears the growling intensify.
[03:36] Shadowcaller: She glances at the others "He isn't responding…"
[03:37] Murska: 'I don't know if he talks.'
[03:38] Shadowcaller: "But… then how are we supposed to communicate with him?"
[03:38] Happy: 6: "You can reach him. But you'll have to open the door."
[03:39] Murska: 'Wait, what? No, we don't have to let him out!'
[03:39] Shadowcaller: "How dangerous is he really?…"
[03:40] Murska: 'He takes over everything.'
[03:43] Shadowcaller: "Is he violent? Would he…" She pauses yet again, looking right at them "Hurt me?"
[03:43] Happy: 3: "I wouldn't let him!"
[03:43] Murska: 'I don't know what happens once he's let out, we all get pushed so far we don't know anything.'
[03:44] Happy: "You mean… we wouldn't be there for her?"
[03:44] Murska: 'At least we would be unable to do anything.'
[03:46] Shadowcaller: She closes her eyes and ask in a weary voice "Do you think he will hurt me?"
[03:46] Murska: 'I… maybe.'
[03:48] Shadowcaller: She dosen' open her eyes "So… if he would take over, he would harm me in real life too?"
[03:50] Shadowcaller: *dosen't
[03:50] Murska: Aegnor1: 'No! None of us could… right?'
[03:50] Murska: He looks at 2 for support.
[03:50] Murska: 2: 'I don't know…'
[03:51] Happy: 6: "No. None of us could hurt you."
[03:52] Shadowcaller: (Do the door have a lock of some kind?)
[03:52] Murska: (Nothing visible)
[03:52] Shadowcaller: "Open the door." She says quietly
[03:53] Murska: 2: 'But…'
[03:53] Shadowcaller: "Open the door!"
[03:53] Happy: Cessie can hear soft whimpering coming from the way they came.

[03:57] Shadowcaller: Aegnor säger:
2: 'But…'
Shadowcaller säger:
"Open the door!"
Happy säger:
Cessie can hear soft whimpering coming from the way they came.

Aegnor har lämnat konversationen.

Shadowcaller säger:
Cessie is taking heavy breaths, her eyes still closed, her head lowered. "Who is it?" She asks, now somwhere in the middle between her almost whispering voice and her shout.
[03:57] Happy: She should recognize the whimpering as Aegnor 5.
[03:59] Shadowcaller: She remains in her position, but her voice do change a bit, become at least a bit softer "Do you know how to open this door?"
[03:59] Happy: 6: "I do."
[03:59] Happy: He steps to the door to open it.
[04:01] Murska: 'No!' Aegnor 4 suddenly jumps from somewhere, and grabs a hold of Cessie's arm firmly, but without hurting her. He holds a knife near her throat. 'Don't open it!'
[04:07] Shadowcaller: It seems to take several moments before she actually realizes whats going on, mostly by suprise apperently as the air elemental reacts quite quickly to his threat, bringing itself as close as it can to him without actually attacking 4. Cessies lips part and close a number of times before finally something comes from her mouth. But it sounds more like a snake hissing that a human voice
[04:07] Shadowcaller: "How dare you?"
[04:08] Happy: 6 just smiles and opens the door.
[04:08] Shadowcaller: Her eyes almost seems to be gloving
[04:08] Shadowcaller: *glowing
[04:08] Murska: The lights go out, as something black flows from the door into the hallway, washing over the Aegnors who disappear…
[04:09] Murska: Except for one.
[04:10] Murska: She still sees Aegnor6 as the wave pushes her out from the corridors. Some levels above, a red ambient lighting helps her see the wooden walls and corridors, no longer beautiful but somehow threatening.
[04:11] Murska: It attempts to push her outside.
[04:12] Shadowcaller: (outside the corridor? o.O)
[04:12] Murska: (Out of the mind)
[04:13] Shadowcaller: She resists, letting the air elemental help her out, trying to maintain in Aegnors mind with all her power (not magic power mind you.)
[04:14] Murska: She avoids being pushed out, but can't stop concentrating against the almost physical pushing.
[04:14] Murska: Meanwhile…
[04:14] Shadowcaller: (Hm?)
[04:15] Murska: In the hut, outside world, Aegnor's eyes open, blood red.
[04:16] Murska: He starts getting up right away, all traces of previous weakness gone.
[04:16] Happy: Seren tries to hold him down. "What's wrong? Why is Cessie still out?"
[04:17] Murska: He grabs his hand and pushes him aside with another hand, with much more strength he's shown before. Standing up, he looks around in the hut for a moment.
[04:17] Happy: (cave)
[04:17] Murska: (rite)
[04:17] Murska: (»)
[04:18] Happy: Seren is pushed aside, hitting the wall hard. He immediately gets to his feet and tries to get between Aegnor and Cessie.
[04:18] Happy: Saranna is paralyzed with indecision. "Seren, what's wrong? What's happening?"
[04:19] Shadowcaller: (So, is Cessie still supposed to react?)
[04:19] Shadowcaller: (Or do we have that later?)
[04:19] Happy: (Cessie is unconscious and can't react. You're a spectator for this part.)
[04:20] Shadowcaller: (Ah, okay.)
[04:20] Murska: The brief moment of hesitation is over. He grabs Seren and tosses him against the wall again, then takes a hold of Cessie, lifting her easily and starts moving towards the exit of the cave.
[04:21] Shadowcaller: (Holy crap, did he transform into chuck norris or something?)
[04:22] Happy: (meh. Seren's a wimp)
[04:22] Happy: Saranna shrieks. "Stop it! Stop it! You can't take her!"
[04:22] Happy: She tries to cast a hold person on him, but the spell fails.
[04:23] Happy: Wolfen appear due to the noise, but are unwilling to attack Aegnor.
[04:24] Murska: He makes a straight path outside as fast as he can.
[04:25] Happy: He escapes. Spearscar sends two wolfen trackers to follow him at a distance.
[04:25] Happy: Back in Aegnor's mind…
[04:26] Shadowcaller: (I guess Cessie wakes up? Am I going to do that?)
[04:26] Happy: (you're still in his mind.)
[04:26] Happy: (you fought to stay in)
[04:27] Shadowcaller: (Yeah, well didn't she fell unconscious in the mind too?)
[04:27] Happy: No
[04:28] Happy: [04:10] Murska: She still sees Aegnor6 as the wave pushes her out from the corridors. Some levels above, a red ambient lighting helps her see the wooden walls and corridors, no longer beautiful but somehow threatening.
[04:11] Murska: It attempts to push her outside.
[04:12] Shadowcaller: (outside the corridor? o.O)
[04:12] Murska: (Out of the mind)
[04:13] Shadowcaller: She resists, letting the air elemental help her out, trying to maintain in Aegnors mind with all her power (not magic power mind you.)
[04:14] Murska: She avoids being pushed out, but can't stop concentrating against the almost physical pushing.
[04:29] Shadowcaller: She tries to stand firm agianst the waves and waves of energy trying to push her outside
[04:29] Shadowcaller: Is there anything she can hold into nearby?
[04:29] Happy: 6 looks back at her and frowns. "What are you still doing here?"
[04:29] Murska: The waves weaken after a while, but she keeps feeling a resistance to her presence.
[04:32] Shadowcaller: She just looks at him with about the same expression as she looked at Aegnor 4, which is the expression fo someone trying to repress a lot of rage. "I could ask you the same thing." She says with a suprisingly calm voice that is devoided from any feelings
[04:33] Happy: "You're an interloper."
[04:34] Shadowcaller: She blinks, twice "Exhuse me?" while taking a few steps closer to him
[04:37] Happy: His voice softens. "What else is there for you to do in here?"
[04:39] Shadowcaller: "Who the name of every false god are you and what are you trying to pull exactly?"
[04:43] Shadowcaller: She steps even closer, just about two steps away from him now (unless he could react or do something before she came that close.)
[04:43] Happy: He puts his hand out to grab her by the throat.
[04:43] Shadowcaller: "Go ahead…"
[04:44] Murska: Aegnor, berserking, with red eyes attacks him from behind with a roar, grabbing him and trying to crush his head against a wall.
[04:44] Shadowcaller: "You must be the most pathetic part of Aegnor, or wahtever you are…"
[04:44] Shadowcaller: *whatever
[04:45] Happy: 6 is pulled away from Cessie by the berserker.
[04:46] Murska: He slams him against the wall, attacking with savage ferocity
[04:47] Happy: 6 twists around in his grasp, hissing in fury.
[04:47] Shadowcaller: (pulled away how? dose she drop to the floor?)
[04:48] Happy: (no, he hadn't gotten a full grasp of her throat when berserker attacked)
[04:48] Shadowcaller: (Right.)
[04:49] Happy: 6 gets hold of the berserker's arm. "I'm in control here…" and grins evilly.
[04:51] Murska: He manages to punch him once more before falling to his knees with an angry roar.
[04:53] Shadowcaller: "Wow… are you from a childrens book?" Cessie remarks as she steps yet closer to Aegnor 6, a fire elemental burst up beside her.
[04:53] Shadowcaller: She looks at Aegnor (/?) and then back at 6
[04:53] Shadowcaller: *7
[04:54] Happy: "Just stay out of this." 6 says, and puts his other hand on 7's head, gripping it tightly
[04:55] Shadowcaller: "I don't think you even are Aegnor." The fire elemental moves closer to Aegnor 6, from the side "But that should have been obvious from the start."
[04:56] Murska: 7 struggles for a moment until he can't, anymore, barely staying on his knees.
[04:56] Happy: 6 holds on for a moment more, and then pushes 7 aside.
[04:57] Murska: He falls to the ground with a thud
[04:57] Shadowcaller: "He was real… your not."
[04:58] Happy: 6 waves a hand at the two elementals, and they vanish.
[04:58] Happy: Meanwhile…
[04:58] Shadowcaller: "Am I supposed to feel threatened?"
[04:59] Murska: Aegnor, out in the desert, still carrying Cessie, has been stumbling and slowing down until he collapses onto the sand.
[05:00] Happy: Cessie's unconscious body falls to the ground with him. The wolfen watch cautiously from a distance.
[05:00] Happy: back inside:
[05:01] Happy: 6 begins to approach Cessie with a sinister smile.
[05:01] Shadowcaller: She casts a fireball at him
[05:01] Shadowcaller: (eer wait.)
[05:02] Shadowcaller: (Must add dialog to that.)
[05:02] Shadowcaller: (no response yet.)
[05:02] Happy: (okay)
[05:04] Shadowcaller: "You must be the most theatrical clown I ever met "I am in control"… *casts a fireball* *sets up a shield*
[05:05] Happy: The fireball goes out like a wet match as soon as it leaves her fingers.
[05:06] Happy: And as he reaches for her, he pushes right through the shield, which has no substance to it.
[05:08] Shadowcaller: She back away "Arik will be so dissapointed for me being killed by a stupid Aegnor clone…" *dispel magic*
[05:08] Happy: (what are you trying to dispel?)
[05:08] Shadowcaller: "Oh well, here goes…" *mind probe*
[05:08] Shadowcaller: (nothing, she just tried everything she got.)
[05:08] Happy: okay then… nothing dispels
[05:09] Shadowcaller: (Well all magic should be dispeled, or at least the weakest effect.)
[05:09] Happy: (none of Cessie's spells were still active)
[05:11] Shadowcaller: (Well, if there is any magic… just ignore it.)
[05:12] Happy: She reaches into 6's mind, and hears a laugh. /Have you forgotten where you are?/
[05:13] Happy: And then 6 reaches for her throat again.
[05:13] Murska: A dagger flies at Aegnor6 from behind. 'I haven't.'
[05:14] Shadowcaller: (Well, apperently he still have to reach for her…)
[05:14] Murska: 'You're in MY home.'
[05:14] Murska: It's Aegnor4's voice.
[05:15] Happy: 6 is hit, and hisses in pain.
[05:17] Murska: Four doesn't give him a chance to regroup but assails him with two more daggers while approaching rapidly.
[05:17] Happy: "How are you still moving?" he snarls
[05:18] Murska: He leaps at him. 'I don't' *stab* 'die easy.'
[05:18] Happy: Cessie hears Aegnor 5's small voice. "You can't use spells here, Cessie."
[05:18] Shadowcaller: (Wait, did you gave Cessie a bad guy immune to spells?)
[05:18] Murska: (They're in Aegnor's minds. The spells can't be real here. )
[05:18] Happy: (no)
[05:18] Murska: (Imagine a fireball in his brain?)
[05:19] Shadowcaller: (Well… apperntly she isn't imagined in his mind.)
[05:19] Happy: (If she'd ever really learned mind magic, she'd have known that. Spells only work if the mind in control allows them.)
[05:19] Murska: (All physical or mental attacks are just avatars for a mental blow)
[05:20] Shadowcaller: (Well, apperently… gah… I don't even have the energy to argue.)
[05:20] Shadowcaller: (The spells worked before…)
[05:21] Happy: (Well if you want, we could have Aegnor's RL head asplode in fire)
[05:21] Happy: (light spell worked, because Aegnor's mind illuminated the surroundings for her.)
[05:22] Happy: (And the elemental worked to separate 4 and 6 because the other Aegnor's didn't know what was going on or whose side to take, so they wanted them separated too)
[05:23] Shadowcaller: (So only physical strength is used in here?)
[05:23] Murska: (the control of the mind was shared between the Aegnors and it didn't decide to not stop the spells)
[05:23] Murska: (And no, there's no physical strength either)
[05:23] Murska: (Er, to stop*)
[05:24] Shadowcaller: (So… she is completely powerless?)
[05:24] Happy: 6: "Then I guess I'll have to keep trying." He goes after 4 again, but is pretty badly wounded.
[05:24] Murska: (She has no control over his mind)
[05:24] Happy: 5 slips his hand into Cessie's. "I thought he was going to make you go away."
[05:24] Shadowcaller: (Yeah, thats what I said.)
[05:24] Happy: (that's why mindmagic is so dangerous. :P )
[05:25] Murska: (She does have control over her own avatar though, and the artifact does stuff)
[05:25] Murska: (And no, I don't know what stuff. :P)
[05:25] Shadowcaller: (Right… neither do I.)
[05:25] Shadowcaller: (So unless I want to make up some powers, its back at "completely powerless")
[05:26] Murska: (Pretty much, at least until control is given back to a friendly influence)
[05:27] Shadowcaller: (Yeah… so I have to watch Aegnor fight himself then? Maybe some type of supportive speach..)
[05:27] Happy: (Aegnor fixed Cessie's mind mostly by negotiating and stuff)
[05:28] Murska: (Mind over matter. :P)
[05:28] Murska: (anyway, let's finish this up today if possible)
[05:28] Shadowcaller: (yeah, well I don't really see how you are supposed to negotiate with this guy really…)
[05:29] Happy: (he's dying now anyway)
[05:29] Murska: (Technically you weren't supposed to give him total control over the mind in the first place but things took some turns…)
[05:29] Happy: [05:24] Happy: 5 slips his hand into Cessie's. "I thought he was going to make you go away."
[05:30] Shadowcaller: (I know, but that was the characters decision, not mine. I suspected that he was some type of evil, he was way too kind:P)
[05:31] Happy: (get on with it, please? or I'm going to go to bed)
[05:31] Shadowcaller: (Right, right… its just that I feel a bit powerless here…)
[05:31] Happy: (you have a small scared child next to you, okay?)
[05:32] Happy: (and RL me is feeling pretty powerless too. Get moving!)
[05:32] Shadowcaller: "He won't, he was just some mindless diot."
[05:32] Shadowcaller: *idiot
[05:32] Happy: "But he almost pushed you out."
[05:33] Happy: (and if you want to take a break instead and restart after a discussion, then we can. But we can't have ooc discussion now)
[05:35] Shadowcaller: "So? He is just some weak evil thing, bend on some stupid singel minded-goal. Even if he killed us all, he would still only just be that, some animal."
[05:35] Shadowcaller: She don't use her "mother-tone" anymore, its like she is talking more to herself then 5
[05:38] Murska: Meanwhile the battle keeps going. Aegnor4 keeps pushing 6 back, seemingly getting stronger all the while. 'This place is mine.'
[05:38] Happy: "Are we an animal too?" 5 asks, anxiously looking at 7.
[05:38] Happy: "Are you mad at us?" *very small voice*
[05:40] Shadowcaller: "No, you are more then that." She says in a bit kinder tone, not infected with pure rage "You aren't bend to some sick barbaric conquest like that Amoeba."
[05:40] Shadowcaller: (The last bit however…)
[05:41] Happy: He hangs his head. "You are."
[05:41] Murska: (I just remembered I only said Aegnor4 is young-looking. He's actually a teenager.)
[05:42] Shadowcaller: "I'm not, you have no connection to that thing."
[05:42] Happy: "Yes I do."
[05:43] Shadowcaller: "Primitive, unintelligent, bastardborn…" She stops there as he says that
[05:43] Happy: 5 pulls away from Cessie and runs to 7's side, curling up on the ground with him.
[05:45] Shadowcaller: "…what now?" (She is pretty much in full rage mode since Aegnor 4 threathened her.)
[05:45] Happy: "Go away then! I don't care!" he shouts, and buries his face against 7 and cries.
[05:45] Shadowcaller: "Aegnor…" Her voice drops
[05:47] Murska: Meanwhile Aegnor4 embeds a dagger into 6's throat. He kicks him a few times and crushes his windpipe, as he starts fading away.
[05:47] Happy: 6 disappears
[05:47] Happy: 5 cries
[05:48] Shadowcaller: /I still have no idea whats going on…./
[05:48] Murska: Aegnor4 breathes for a moment. 'Gone.'
[05:50] Shadowcaller: Cessie takes a number of deep breaths before sits down beside 5 "I'm sorry." She says, very simply but with a lot of effort put into it "I'm not mad at you…"
[05:51] Happy: 5's sobs subside a bit, but he doesn't look up.
[05:51] Murska: Aegnor 4 walks to him slowly. 'You shouldn't have let him open it. But thank you for staying here. I had to have something to rally on.'
[05:52] Murska: her*
[05:52] Shadowcaller: "You threatened me with a knife…"
[05:53] Murska: 'I thought that'd be something that would stop him opening it. None of us would have.'
[05:54] Shadowcaller: "Stop calling it "him", its wasn't even a animal."
[05:55] Shadowcaller: *it
[05:56] Murska: 'Kind of like him?' He points at Aegnor7.
[05:56] Shadowcaller: "No…"
[05:56] Shadowcaller: "DOn't you even dare compare them."
[05:56] Murska: 'I'm just comparing myself.'
[05:56] Murska: Aegnor 2 steps into the room from somewhere. 'I think you'll need to wake up. The body is not in a good shape.'
[05:57] Shadowcaller: "It would be like you compared yourself to the worm…"
[05:57] Murska: Aegnor4 steps away. '…and you think I haven't?'
[05:57] Murska: (quietly)
[05:57] Happy: 5 strokes 7's hair, but says nothing.
[05:58] Shadowcaller: (Dose she hear 4 say that?)
[05:58] Happy: (yeah)
[05:58] Shadowcaller: "You have compared yourself to the worm?!"
[05:59] Shadowcaller: "Are you out of your mind Aegnor?" While Cessie is still shouting, she appears a lot calmer
[05:59] Happy: (i'm going to bed. You guys don't need me.)
[05:59] Shadowcaller: But also a lot more tired
[05:59] Happy: (i'll stay logged on)
[05:59] Shadowcaller: Almost to the point of break down…
[05:59] Shadowcaller: (Night.)
[06:00] Happy: *hugs* and *poof*
[06:00] Murska: He just shrugs and walks off.
[06:01] Shadowcaller: She sinks down on the floor, exhuased, it appears that all this have drained her a lot more then she had let on
[06:02] Murska: Aegnor2 walks to her, concerned. 'Are you all right?'
[06:06] Shadowcaller: Her head titles back and fourth, her hair all messed up. However, she do seems to still carry enough strength to fix her eyes at him "When I cam in here, I confessed my feelings to the first Aegnor I met. Since that moment I have carried everything inside me…"
[06:06] Shadowcaller: *came
[06:09] Murska: He puts a hand on her shoulder and kneels next to her. 'You saved me. And I wish you won't hold what you've seen here against me, but I will understand if you do.'
[06:15] Shadowcaller: There is a long paus before she says anything else "I just wanted to… then that false thing came along and you threatened me…" At this point she seems to going straight into a breakdown but somehow she tries to turn it into rage instead "I hate that cursed thing so much.." The words are pressed out between her teeths.
[06:16] Murska: Aegnor1 also steps to the room. 'The philosophical implications of hating something for it wanting to grow and consume at the detriment of other beings are interesting, but now is not quite the time.'
[06:17] Shadowcaller: It don't last long however, she looks up at him with a desperate look on her face "I just wanted to wake you up…"
[06:18] Shadowcaller: *distressed look o her face
[06:19] Shadowcaller: (Here, you can see all expressions… (Link: http://cedarseed.deviantart.com/art/Emotions-and-Facial-Expression-47118559)http://cedarseed.deviantart.com/art/Emotions-and-Facial-Expression-47118559)
[06:19] Shadowcaller: "I…" The words seems to fail her
[06:23] Murska: 1: 'Thank you for it. Now you've also visited my mind, maybe you can understand what I saw better.'
[06:26] Shadowcaller: She looks up once again ans smiles sadly, but dosen't say anything. Its not until a few moments of silence she seems to have the energy to speak again "What happend… on the outside?" (Also, should not the artifact/Seren connection have broken?)
[06:27] Murska: (*shrug* I don't know how it works. Probably it doesn't need a constant concentration or something.)
[06:27] Murska: 2: 'I'm not sure yet, but we're very weak.'
[06:29] Shadowcaller: "I need to rest… but I'm still so confused about all this, I can't really understand what happend here…"
[06:32] Murska: 2: 'Of course.' 1: 'I can't say everything went that well but it was nice seeing you here.' He attempts a slight smile.
[06:34] Shadowcaller: "I need to see if you would ever hurt me… it dosen't matter what that mindless thing did… it dosen't matter… it can't harm me, it was just some pathetic monster."
[06:35] Shadowcaller: "None of you hurted me… and thats really all thats matters."
[06:37] Murska: 1: 'None of us would ever hurt you.' He draws her into a hug. 'You know that, don't you?'
[06:39] Shadowcaller: "I was afraid…" She sort of fall upon him and he can feel of very weak she is right now, like she's weightless

[06:41] Murska: Shadowcaller sanoo:
"I was afraid…" She sort of fall upon him and he can feel of very weak she is right now, like she's weightless "I was afraid you might…"

[06:42] Murska: He holds her firmly. 'Shh. It's fine.'
[06:44] Shadowcaller: "I am so sorry… so very sorry…"
[06:46] Murska: (backstab - ouch)
[06:46] Shadowcaller: (Hm?)
[06:46] Murska: (At this point. :P)
[06:46] Shadowcaller: (By whom?)
[06:47] Murska: 'Don't worry about it. You saved us in the end.' (1)
[06:49] Shadowcaller: Aegnor 1 can feel his shoulder getting wet, but Cessie quickly wipes away her tears, recovering somewhat "Just… before I go. What was that thing?"
[06:51] Murska: 'It was some sort of an intruder. It clouded my mind…'
[06:54] Shadowcaller: "I guess it can't be explained by magical terms huh?" Her tone is slowly returning to normal
[06:54] Murska: 'I don't know. You said I was sick. I'm still very weak.'
[06:55] Murska: (Either my internet is dying or Google died Oo)
[06:55] Shadowcaller: (o.O)
[06:55] Murska: it's my internet
[06:55] Murska: dead
[06:57] Shadowcaller: "Its' okay, we'll talk later… in the real world…" Cessie makes a feeble attempt to stand up, which somehow succeds
[06:58] Murska: Both Aegnors try to help her.
[06:59] Murska: Aegnor 1 has a subtle smile on his face, as though he's amused by a thought of his.
[06:59] Shadowcaller: "What?"
[07:00] Murska: 'Nooothing.' It was a lie, and he knows you know that.
[07:02] Shadowcaller: "Aegnor… I don't like secrets." Her tone is not amused, possibly beacuse she isn't really in a mused state of being, but it sounds like she's trying to be amused.
[07:03] Murska: 'Oh, it was just a thought. You're tired, you wouldn't like it.'
[07:03] Shadowcaller: "No, say it."
[07:04] Murska: 'Well, I just remembered that since when I visited your mind, you sang to me, maybe you could let me repay the favour before you go…'
[07:05] Shadowcaller: "But that… that was only a part…" She pauses and appears to change her mind "Yes, please sing for me Aegnor, it was some time ago…"
[07:07] Murska: He smiles brightly. 'If you really want.'
[07:08] Shadowcaller: She returns his smile, "Yes, of course…"
[07:09] Shadowcaller: "I love your music…" She adds with a quiet voice
[07:09] Murska: He smiles happily and gives her his hand. 'This way, please.'
[07:11] Shadowcaller: She stands up, without any help this time "FOr once… maybe… oh nevermind." She takes his hand
[07:11] Murska: 'Yes?' He says as he starts leading her towards a door.
[07:13] Shadowcaller: "Hh, its already too late now… please lead on."
[07:13] Shadowcaller: *oh
[07:13] Murska: 'Aww, but that's not fair. I gave up when you asked, didn't I?'
[07:16] Shadowcaller: "Well, if you really need to know, I wanted to not be lead around for one time." She manages to smile again "But as you see… too late. Her smile turns into a grin that then quickly fades away
[07:19] Murska: He smiles. 'You showed me around where I didn't know the place. Support each other with each other's strengths and so on.' He's been leading you down some corridors, she might or might not remember that this is near to his own room
[07:22] Shadowcaller: "Hm, you know. I do remember that a part of me didn't want me to sing. Or maybe thats from what you told? I don't remember…"
[07:24] Murska: 'Yeah. But you did agree to try it some day recently. That made me so happy.' He smiles brightly again.
[07:26] Shadowcaller: "Yeah… I'm actually glad I sang for you there, it must have been the very last time you were there anyway."
[07:28] Murska: 'Maybe it was. I sure hope I don't /have/ to go back there anymore.'
[07:30] Shadowcaller: SHe chuckles "What did I sing for you anyway? How did I look like?"
[07:32] Murska: 'Beautiful, like always. We sang the song I made for us together.'
[07:33] Shadowcaller: "Oh… what soing are you going to make for me then?"
[07:33] Shadowcaller: *song
[07:34] Murska: He looks a bit sad for a moment. 'I haven't had the time to create a song just for you. It will have to be perfect…'
[07:35] Shadowcaller: "A song? For me?… I- I didn't even know you could make songs about persons."
[07:35] Shadowcaller: "How can you translate someone into notes?"
[07:37] Murska: 'A song about you…' He looks at her, and somehow far away at the same time. 'Would have to be perfect. I fear I will never be skilled enough for that. But I will try.'
