Kyou 57

[22:00] Shadowcaller: Anything we could RP in the IF?
[22:00] Shadowcaller: I'm bored >.>
[22:01] Happy: goodbye between Hope and Michicora?
[22:01] Shadowcaller: Sure, not that she will say that much:P
[22:01] Shadowcaller: Unless Hope really insists about it…
[22:02] Shadowcaller: Where did you leave off Michicora?
[22:02] Happy: When we met up with the reserves, I guess
[22:02] Happy: And sent the wounded away
[22:02] Shadowcaller: I'm suprised that no one have been more angry about Arik for that
[22:04] Happy: yeah, we should deal with that too. murska was just in such a hurry to roleplay moving on
[22:04] Shadowcaller: Yeah
[22:06] Shadowcaller: Michicora is with the reserves, she still looks badly burned after Ariks attack
[22:07] Happy: "I'm sorry… I didn't move fast enough." Hope says.
[22:08] Shadowcaller: Michicora looks up at you and just raises a eyebrown "Things happens."
[22:09] Happy: "I promise you… we'll get the gate open. We'll hear Kuori's voice again."
[22:12] Shadowcaller: She shrugs "Its possible…" It looks like she are going to cut off there but as a afterthought adds "I need to hear it again."
[22:13] Happy: In a low voice: "And afterwards, we'll deal with the lich."
[22:14] Shadowcaller: "…Cessie, Arik. They are brother and sister right?"
[22:15] Happy: "Yes."
[22:16] Shadowcaller: "Okay." She says without any further explanation
[22:17] Happy: "Why do you ask?"
[22:17] Shadowcaller: "No reason… they are just different, thats all."
[22:18] Happy: "Yes. Cessie still has a moral compass. For Arik, he cares only for power." she pauses. "And Cessie. He does seem to care for her."
[22:19] Shadowcaller: "Why?"
[22:20] Shadowcaller: "It would make him easier to kill if he didn't."
[22:20] Happy: "It would make him easier to kill if she didn't care for him."
[22:20] Shadowcaller: "Why dose she care about him then?"
[22:21] Happy: "I don't know. I guess because she always has and won't see what he's become."
[22:21] Shadowcaller: "She's blind."
[22:22] Happy: "I know. She doesn't understand war, even though she's been in the middle of it."
[22:22] Shadowcaller: "She mus adapt."
[22:22] Shadowcaller: *must
[22:24] Happy: Hope sighs. "I'm afraid before that happens, she'll end up having a breakdown. And we can't afford that yet. So I'm trying to keep her blind, for now."
[22:24] Shadowcaller: "Then your crueler then me in a way."
[22:25] Shadowcaller: "And I'm cruel."
[22:25] Happy: "We serve Kouri after all"
[22:26] Shadowcaller: "I would like to keep it her choice, but it isn't any more, not with whats at stake."
[22:29] Shadowcaller: She stops herself as she appears to continue along that line "But do whatever you want… as long as you succed…"
[22:30] Happy: "Yes." Hope hesitates a moment, then reaches out and squeezes Michicora's hand. "May we both have good hunting."
[22:32] Shadowcaller: She looks down on your hand holding hers "Yes, Kuori will bless our hunt."
[22:32] Shadowcaller: She squeezes back a bit "I just wish I could be with you…"
[22:33] Happy: "If you can try and protect these people while i am gone…"
[22:35] Shadowcaller: "I suppose…. but I really want to be the one to… free him."
[22:37] Shadowcaller: Her otherwise so emtionless face looks almost sad
[22:40] Happy: Hope meets her eyes, with another squeeze. "I understand." Though for her, it's not about freeing Kuori, but how she wants to be the one to free Promise.
[22:42] Shadowcaller: "Is there no way you can convinc him to let me join? I do anything…"
[22:43] Shadowcaller: *convinc
[22:43] Happy: "Michicora, how long will it take you to heal? Truthfully?"
[22:44] Shadowcaller: She shakes her head "I don't know, but even if I'm damaged… I can still help."
[22:44] Shadowcaller: "I won't be in the way."
[22:45] Happy: "Do you think you could get over the walls into Kyou?"
[22:45] Shadowcaller: "…I could try, if its needed."
[22:47] Happy: "It was a thought… that perhaps you could attack by land while we went by sea. But maybe I should talk to Aegnor first. Try to convince him."
[22:48] Shadowcaller: "Could- could you really do that for me?"
[22:49] Happy: "I'll try. I know what this means to you."
[22:50] Happy: (Loony's looking for someone to play Magic with)
[22:51] Shadowcaller: "Thank you Hope. Thank you." She squeezes you hand really hard

[18:07] Happy: Hope tries to find a moment alone with Aegnor, which of course is complicated by the fact that everyone wants his time.
[18:08] Murska: If she asks, he'll go talk with her somewhere peaceful-er.
[18:09] Happy: "I think Michicora should come with us." Hope says.
[18:11] Murska: Aegnor sighs. 'She's wounded. If everything goes well, we won't need her and if she dies because she came without reason…'
[18:13] Happy: "Her bond to Kuori is something I don't think any of us can imagine.
[18:13] Happy: The only thing that's been holding her together is working to get him back. And if we leave her behind, she won't even have that."
[18:15] Murska: 'For all of the few hours it'd take us to open the gate? Is it really that necessary for her to be a part of the group, only Arik of which will probably even get the chance to do something?'
[18:16] Happy: "Aegnor, if it were Cessie trapped on the other side, you'd have to be there, no matter how high the risk or how low the chance you could help."
[18:17] Murska: 'And if Cessie was the one deciding whether I came or not, and I was wounded so me being there would be both a greater risk for the group to fail and for myself to die?''
[18:19] Happy: "You think we'd be more likely to fail, just because she is wounded? I don't believe that."
[18:22] Murska: 'And do you know what awaits us there? Neither do I. What I do know is, if I'd let her come and then she got into trouble, I would not leave her behind. Would you?'
[18:27] Happy: Hope can hear Michicora's words in her mind: "You're crueler than me." And she knows that if it was a choice between Michicora and the gate, she would leave Michicora to die. That Michicora would do the same to her. And that neither woman would feel any blame towards the other.
[18:28] Happy: "Then I will go and tell her she has to remain." she says.
[18:29] Murska: 'Thank you.'
[18:31] Happy: Hope goes to Michicora, who can probably tell from her expression that she was unsuccessful.
[18:33] Shadowcaller: Michicora is at the same spot you left her, watching you expectingly, as you come closer she gets a almost depressed look on her face "Why?"
[18:36] Happy: "He is afraid that having a wounded person along will endanger the mission."
[18:36] Murska: ('might' endanger, more like)
[18:37] Shadowcaller: "But- but I won't be with you, I can take another route- I can be useful outside the group."
[18:38] Happy: "Michicora, do you trust me?"
[18:39] Shadowcaller: "What do- yes."
[18:42] Happy: "When the gate opens again, it will be as big a chance as when it closed. The spirits may be pouring out looking for vengeance. The gods will begin fighting again for influence or even survival. Kuori will have need of you."
[18:43] Happy: "It won't help him if you die before he is restrored."
[18:45] Happy: ((I'm really somewhat disturbed by Hope's learning to manipulate people….))
[18:45] Shadowcaller: It looks like she is about to protest, but then she stops herself, clsoing her eyes for a second. "A-" She lifts her hand in a gesture of something "I'm going to kill him. Once this is done, i'm going to kill him."
[18:46] Happy: "Arik?"
[18:46] Shadowcaller: "Who do you think?! I'm going to rip of his freaking skull!"
[18:48] Happy: "I won't try to stop you."
[18:49] Shadowcaller: "Good… I hope you will aid me in fact."
[18:50] Happy: "I will. "
[18:51] Shadowcaller: "Thank you Hope… just… if you by any chance would hear Kuori or something, tell him why I wasn't there."
[18:53] Happy: Hope can't hug her because of the burns on her body, but she squeezes her hand. "I will tell him you were doing your duty here."
[18:55] Shadowcaller: "Thank you… thats all I need." SHe seueezes back hard
[18:57] Shadowcaller: After a while she adds, "you should go now, make Kuori proud."
[18:58] Happy: Hope nods, blinking back tears, and leaves.
[19:00] Shadowcaller: Michicora dosen't cry, but she looks after Hope a long time after she left. Then she slowly go back to the base camp
