Exodus 38

[22:13] Shadowcaller: [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…'

[22:13] Shadowcaller: [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.'

[22:17] Shadowcaller: "Don't knock yourself out Aegnor, I'm hardly worth a perfect song. Besides, nothing can be perfect, you need to see my flaws too."
[22:22] Murska: 'If anyone is worth it, then you.'

[22:30] Shadowcaller: (Anyhow…) (where are they? are they any closer to Aegnors room?)
[22:30] Murska: (On the way, almost there)
[22:31] Shadowcaller: "Who am I to argue with the composer? Beauty is in the eye of the beholder after all."
[22:32] Shadowcaller: (Which is a principle she uses…)
[22:32] Murska: (Hmm. Civ PBEM started with a puzzling start location)
[22:33] Murska: He smiles and stops next to a door. 'Well, here we are…'
[22:34] Murska: Opening the door to a room with proper acoustics and seats with a centrally placed stage.
[22:34] Shadowcaller: (How many seats?)
[22:35] Murska: (Right now twelve.)
[22:36] Shadowcaller: Cessie looks around as she walks into his room "Quite a big place… who do you play for?"
[22:39] Murska: 'Pretty much only alone.'
[22:40] Shadowcaller: "But all these seats… that must be terrible, how can you play without a audience?"
[22:41] Murska: 'Practice and jam. I don't often play here… all the empty seats get depressing.'
[22:43] Shadowcaller: "Well, I need to sit down anyway…" She almost collapses into the nearest chair "You can start preparing, I just need to sit down a while."
[22:48] Murska: He looks at her for a moment. 'Okay.' Then he heads onto the stage.
[22:49] Shadowcaller: Cessie rests her eyes for a moment, but dosen't fall asleep, she looks more relaxed now then she ever been since she entered the mind scape
[22:50] Shadowcaller: (Happy, whats going on outside anyway?)
[22:52] Happy: The wolfen have found Aegnor and Cessie's unconscious bodies and are very carefully carrying them back to the oasis.
[22:54] Shadowcaller: Cessie opens her eyes again to see if she can see Aegnor around her somewhere
[22:55] Murska: He's on the stage, getting ready. 'Are you ready?'
[22:57] Shadowcaller: "Am I supposed to sing along?" Cessie wonders
[23:00] Murska: 'If you want to.' He takes out his guitars and tests the strings, tuning them slightly.
[23:01] Shadowcaller: "No, I will get to easily lost in your music. The most complicated song I ever sung was "Midwinter"."
[23:04] Murska: He smiles and plucks a few tunes of it, then stops. 'Just listen, then.'
[23:04] Shadowcaller: She smiles back, "Gladly."
[23:05] Murska: He starts playing Sunshine of your Love at first. (I'll go check if my youtube works today)
[23:07] Happy: Aegnor 3 silently creeps into the room.
[23:09] Shadowcaller: Cessie is listening intensly and dosen't notice him
[23:14] Murska: He continues with a song of his own, with a beautiful melody and elven lyrics, about love.
[23:16] Happy: Aegnor 3 sits down next to Cessie.
[23:16] Shadowcaller: (He trully knows how to melt someones hearth… really, good looking, knowing this worlds equiliant of france, knows music… plus another couples of features. He is quite the catch.) Cessie continues to listen, just hope she don't start to woo over him:P
[23:17] Murska: (Bah, French. » Latin or Greek perhaps… :P)
[23:17] Shadowcaller: (Okay then…)
[23:17] Happy: (I'm partial to a sexy english accent myself >.> )
[23:18] Murska: (I don't know about accents. Knowing a language I know is a plus.)
[23:20] Shadowcaller: (Um, Murska decides what accent Aegnor have if any:P)
[23:20] Murska: (Whatever they use on the tree.)
[23:20] Shadowcaller: (You would not want to hear Hestopian accent…)
[23:22] Shadowcaller: Cessie looks at Aegnor three and nods as to confirm her awarness of him
[23:24] Murska: (Ha. I found another email address of Happy's. »)
[23:24] Happy: (meh. i have zillions.)
[23:25] Murska: (I have three.)
[23:25] Shadowcaller: (I got one >.>)
[23:26] Happy: (hey, if I die night 1 in memesville, lynch wolfbane)
[23:26] Wolfbane: (>.>)
[23:27] Shadowcaller: (Anyway…) I guess Aegnor 1 continues to play?
[23:27] Murska: yup
[23:28] Murska: A third song, one that you've heard. Feel free to have Aegnor3 and Cessie chat.
[23:31] Shadowcaller: She smiles at Aegnor 3 encouragely "So…?" She says very quiely, to not disturb the show
[23:32] Happy: "You aren't angry at us anymore?" he asks hopefully.
[23:34] Shadowcaller: She looks a bit suprised at his question "I never was angry at you Aegnor, why do you belive that?"
[23:34] Happy: "Well… you were in a rage…"
[23:35] Shadowcaller: "I was in rage of that other thing, never you or any other parts of you…"
[23:37] Happy: He smiles shyly. "You have so much fire."
[23:41] Shadowcaller: She looks at him tenderly, with a gentle smile on her face "Thats a compliment right?"
[23:42] Shadowcaller: (The question sin't really serious as you might realize.)
[23:43] Happy: He smiles back. "Of course."
[23:44] Shadowcaller: "Do that mean you like me when I'm angry?"
[23:44] Shadowcaller: (You would not like me when i'm angry:P)
[23:45] Happy: "I like you whatever your mood."
[23:47] Shadowcaller: "You know what I mean, we all have our low moments and high moments… just as moments we really like or… dislike one another."
[23:47] Shadowcaller: "It have been moments I been annoyed by your overprotectivness for example…"
[23:54] Shadowcaller: ..
[23:55] Happy: "It's only because we care for you so much."
[23:55] Shadowcaller: "Yes, but can't you care and let me take care of myself?"
[23:59] Happy: "But in here, you aren't as strong as outside."
[23:59] Shadowcaller: "Aren't I technically more safe here then at the outside?"
[00:00] Happy: He looks confused. "I don't know."
[00:02] Shadowcaller: "I don't mind you protecting me you know… just not when its not needed."
[00:05] Shadowcaller: (How is the music going?)
[00:06] Murska: (Instrumental, about ending. Tell me when you've finished the conversation. :P)
[00:07] Shadowcaller: (Happy decides.)
[00:08] Happy: "But it was needed."
[00:08] Happy: "But we needed your help too. We couldn't see that he was an imposter."
[00:10] Shadowcaller: "I guess I made you notice him… when I helped him took over your entire /mind/." (sarcasm.)
[00:14] Happy: 3 doesn't know what to say to that, so he falls silent. And soon the song ends.
[00:14] Murska: 1 bows and walks off the stage towards them.
[00:15] Shadowcaller: Cessie applauds eagerly as he finishes
[00:16] Happy: 3 applauds as well
[00:19] Shadowcaller: (Hm is any of the Aegnors ever jealous that she hugs any of them? I know that would not make any sense sinc they are basically the same person, but still…) Cessie rises up and kisses him as he approaches them. "That was great." Cessie comments as she warps her arms around his head.
[00:20] Murska: 'Thanks.' He smiles. 'I'm afraid the world outside will require your attention soon, but glad you listened.'
[00:22] Shadowcaller: "I'm glad I heared it… but your right of course, I should wavve everyone good bye, Artari's knows whats going on in the real world all this time…"
[00:28] Murska: 'Yeah. I can feel we are weak.'
[00:29] Happy: Cessie can see the golden thread out of the corner of her eye. That's when she realizes that it had disappeared for a while.
[00:30] Happy: But in the real world, Seren has managed by now to reestablish the link.
[00:32] Shadowcaller: "Maybe you could gather the others to say good bye?"
[00:34] Murska: 'Sure, let's go back to the entrance hall.'
[00:34] Shadowcaller: "Sure." She lets go of 1 and follows him allong
[00:35] Shadowcaller: *alog
[00:35] Shadowcaller: *along
[00:35] Happy: 5 is waiting there.
[00:37] Murska: 2 is also still there.
[00:38] Murska: And they tell her that they'll go ask 4 if she wants though it's unlikely he'd come.
[00:39] Shadowcaller: "I will go and ask him I guess…"
[00:40] Shadowcaller: "Where is he?"
[00:40] Murska: 'He's always near the cell somewhere.'
[00:42] Shadowcaller: "Hm, I will find my way there then." She tries to find her way towards the cell, that should not be *that* hard
[00:46] Happy: Presumably she does, since Aegnor wants her to.
[00:47] Shadowcaller: "Aegnor?" She calls out as she enters the dark cell
[00:48] Murska: I'd assume she doesn't enter the cell itself. :P
[00:48] Shadowcaller: (Well, whatever you call it.)
[00:48] Murska: But the room before it, perhaps.
[00:48] Shadowcaller: (The ward?)
[00:49] Shadowcaller: (Sounds good, from now on Cessie decides its going to be be called "the ward" >.>)
[00:49] Murska: 'kay
[00:49] Murska: 'Yeah?'
[00:49] Murska: Aegnor4 is inside.
[00:49] Shadowcaller: "Aren't you going to say good bye?"
[00:51] Murska: 'And you care?'
[00:52] Shadowcaller: "I guess you don't but I do actually. I mean, is there any meaning with being here in the dark? What are you doing here anyway?"
[00:55] Murska: 'I guard. The others do the work nowadays.'
[00:57] Shadowcaller: "Work? What kind of work do they do? And why do the berserker needs a guard anyway? He seems sealed away safe enough."
[01:00] Murska: 'I'm /supposed/ to stop anyone from letting him out.' His voice is somewhat bitter. 'And they're all so strong nowadays, they decide what we do.'
[01:01] Shadowcaller: "Why would they like to let him out?"
[01:02] Murska: He shrugs. 'Why was he just let out? I'm the one who lets him out if I get strong enough to.'
[01:04] Shadowcaller: "But he rages uncontrollably, in anything else then some death or life situation, I can't really see why you would like to let him out."
[01:05] Murska: 'The point.'
[01:07] Shadowcaller: "…how do you feel about me Aegnor?"
[01:08] Murska: 'You? You're…' He's quiet for a moment. 'A risk.'
[01:10] Shadowcaller: "A risk?"
[01:10] Shadowcaller: "A risk of what?"
[01:11] Murska: 'If something happens to you, it'll all crumble.'
[01:12] Shadowcaller: She raises an eyebrown, looking at him skeptically "So, if I left you then? WOuld that make everything better?"
[01:14] Murska: 'No, that'd be as bad. You're an unavoidable risk.'
[01:15] Shadowcaller: "So, it was better before I showed up?"
[01:15] Murska: 'I decided what we'd do. It was safer.'
[01:17] Shadowcaller: She chuckles for some reason "You sound exactly like me, or rather, who I was."
[01:21] Shadowcaller: "I tell you, that person was never happy. Sure I managed, but… eventually I would have just been all alone. My only goal in life was to life forever, but it would have been a empty life."
[01:24] Murska: 'Hm.' He's quiet for a moment. 'Well, I guess you probably won't be of detriment to us outside, and though I don't see what's going on, something needs to be done there, I don't like our weakened state.'
[01:25] Shadowcaller: "I guess I will say good bye to you hear then Aegnor…"
[01:26] Shadowcaller: *hear
[01:26] Shadowcaller: *here
[01:26] Murska: '…bye.'
[01:27] Shadowcaller: "Bye Aegnor, just don't be like I once were, you made me better then that…"
[01:28] Shadowcaller: She leaves for the entrance hall, waving farwell
[01:29] Murska: It's dark. She doesn't see him wave back. Nor him turning back towards the cell door.
[01:29] Murska: The entrance hall, everyone else is still there.
[01:31] Shadowcaller: She greets them as she enters
[01:31] Shadowcaller: "I guess we should say good bye now."
[01:33] Happy: 5 runs and hugs her tightly.
[01:34] Shadowcaller: (as far he can reach at least.)
[01:34] Shadowcaller: (How tall is he anyway?)
[01:34] Happy: (about waist high, I guess)
[01:35] Shadowcaller: She sits down anf hugs him to "I will miss you Aegnor" She says in a quiet voice
[01:36] Murska: 2: 'True. Farewell, then.'
[01:36] Murska: 1: 'It was good you came, and I thank you for listening.'
[01:37] Happy: "It's okay," he whispers to Cessie. "You're always with me."
[01:38] Shadowcaller: She puts her hands on his shoulders and positions herself face to face with him and just smiles.
[01:39] Happy: He smiles back.
[01:40] Shadowcaller: She turns her head towards the others "Farwell everyone, it have been nice meeting you."
[01:43] Shadowcaller: Then I guess she goes back to the real world
[01:45] Happy: She does
[01:47] Happy: Before Cessie opens her eyes, she can feel that she's being carried.
[01:47] Wolfbane: (brb )
[01:49] Shadowcaller: She quietly opens her eyes, just taking a small glipse of the world outside.
[01:50] Happy: She sees fur. She's being carried by a wolfen.
[01:52] Shadowcaller: As carefully as possible, she shields herself, just in case.
[01:52] Wolfbane: (back)
[01:54] Shadowcaller: Whoever carries her might feel that she moves a bit
[01:54] Happy: The wolfen stops walking and looks at her, saying something that she doesn't understand.
[01:55] Shadowcaller: /Let go of me…/
[01:57] Happy: /Are you sure? I don't know that you are able to walk./
[01:58] Shadowcaller: /I won't be carried around like some crippeled, I could stand when I fell asleep, I can stand now./ SHe have opened her eyes and is staring at the wolfen
[01:58] Shadowcaller: Not looking to be in the best of moods
[01:59] Happy: He very carefully lowers her to the ground, ready to catch her if her legs give out under her.
[02:00] Happy: She sees another Wolfen carrying Aegnor, and Seren limping nearby.
[02:01] Shadowcaller: She is quite unsteady as she tries to walk, but manages it somehow, but its not very fast.
[02:01] Shadowcaller: (Is this during the day in the sun?)
[02:02] Happy: (you decide)
[02:03] Shadowcaller: (I guess it is… thought thats really something a GM should decide.)
[02:04] Happy: (meh, i'm lazy)
[02:04] Happy: Seren: "Cessie.."
[02:06] Shadowcaller: "Oh hu- I mean.. hi." Seren could hear how she spoke in a very strange accent for a moment. "Seren… how's Aegnor?"
[02:07] Happy: "Not well, after being in the sun. Cessie, what happened?"
[02:08] Shadowcaller: "I'm not entierly sure… but can you first answer me why we are in the middle of the desert?"
[02:12] Happy: "Aegnor woke up and went crazy. He attacked everyone, picked you up, and ran off with you."
[02:14] Shadowcaller: Her head jerks back slightly as she suddenly looks quite suprised, even shocked "…oh."
[02:15] Happy: "I'm sorry, I tried to stop him."
[02:15] Shadowcaller: There is a bit of a paus here as she seems to be trying to imagine that, "No one was hurt right?"
[02:16] Happy: "No. No one but you and Aegnor." He says, trying not to make it obvious that he's limping.
[02:16] Happy: "You may be sunburnt."
[02:17] Shadowcaller: (Dose she feel sunburnt? The lack of water might have needed to be described and stuff >.>)
[02:17] Shadowcaller: (How far went they anyway? How long have they been gone?)
[02:18] Murska: (Happy: You'll get the Civ PBEM save soon)
[02:18] Murska: (I might try for a SE-econ or something at some point)
[02:18] Happy: (sunburn typically doesn't show up right away)
[02:19] Happy: (if it did, people wouldn't get it so bad, because they'd come inside before the worst of the damage was done)
[02:20] Shadowcaller: (Second question then, how long have they been gone?)
[02:21] Happy: (Cessie has no way of knowing)
[02:23] Shadowcaller: (Well, I need to know, to see if she is light headed for water loss and stuff.)
[02:23] Murska: (Then you need to ask us if she's light headed for water loss and stuff :P)
[02:24] Shadowcaller: (Well, that was my orginal question…)
[02:24] Happy: Cessie does feel hot and lightheaded.
[02:25] Shadowcaller: (…what were you about to say there wolfy?) "Do you have any water? How long have I been gone? Days? Hours?"
[02:26] Wolfbane: (A oneliner that I thought better about)
[02:26] Wolfbane: :P
[02:26] Happy: "About two hours maybe?"
[02:26] Happy: He gets a waterskin from the Wolfen and hands it to her.
[02:26] Shadowcaller: (I suspected that…)
[02:27] Shadowcaller: She drinks greedily
[02:28] Wolfbane: (brb )
[02:29] Shadowcaller: "Thanks.." She mumbles as she hands it back to him
[02:30] Happy: Since the camp is nearer than the alpha's caves, they reach the camp first.
[02:32] Shadowcaller: Cessie is in no condition to cast spells, all she manges is that shield spell that she dismisses once they come back to camp again.
[02:35] Happy: The Gallion wolfen come and talk to the local wolfen, and Cessie and Aegnor are taken to a nearby tent to get out of the sun.
[02:36] Shadowcaller: Cessie goes to rest as soon as she reaches the tent, in nearest aviable bed
