[19:38] Shadowcaller: Hehe
[19:39] Happy: I seem to be becoming a schemer
[19:39] Murska: yup
[19:39] Shadowcaller: Not another one…
[19:39] Murska: you're learning from the best ;)
[19:39] Murska: Following in the footsteps of old daddy. :P
[19:39] Shadowcaller: …
[19:39] Shadowcaller: Stop creeping me out
[19:40] Murska: She's only like 2,5 times older than me. :P
[19:40] Shadowcaller: *goes up to narrator throne*
[19:41] Shadowcaller: Eh, age means nothing on the internet
[19:42] Murska: Well, theoretically age has something to do with father-daughter relationships, according to some stuff I've read. As in, the father is usually older.
[19:42] Happy: there's always time machines
[19:42] Murska: indeed
[19:42] Murska: Hmm. I think I just found out something about my future.
[19:42] Shadowcaller: The internet makes everything possible
[19:43] Shadowcaller: …your more creepy then my cat
[19:43] Murska: *creeps*
[19:44] Shadowcaller: Anyway, I would guess Nigma is not online right now
[19:46] Shadowcaller: Should we start up something without him?
[19:47] Murska: sure
[19:47] Shadowcaller: We just left the town right?
[19:47] Murska: yup
[19:47] Murska: you have clothes and I was away so didn't compliment. :(
[19:47] Shadowcaller: (we really sucked:P)
[19:48] Shadowcaller: Anyway, I got new traveler clothes atleast
[19:51] Shadowcaller: We are travelling throught the woods
[19:52] Happy: Happy is still moody
[19:52] Murska: *travels through the woods*
[19:52] Shadowcaller: Suddenly you hear something
[19:52] Murska: *hears something*
[19:53] Shadowcaller: What do you do? Still going?:P
[19:53] Happy: (i'm waiting for a description of what I hear)
[19:54] Murska: (yup. :P)
[19:54] Shadowcaller: Oh, it sounds like something is moving, possible just some large animal
[19:54] Happy: "I'll check it out."
[19:54] Murska: Aegnor stops.
[19:55] Happy: Happy draws her bow and goes to check it out.
[19:55] Shadowcaller: The sounds seems to be coming from the top of a large tree
[19:56] Happy: look
[19:56] Shadowcaller: You can't see anything, the foilage is too think, but the mosing suddely stops as you come closer
[19:57] Happy: Shout "Who's there?"
[19:57] Shadowcaller: Only silence follows
[19:58] Shadowcaller: The forest seems to have gone unaturally quiet…
[19:59] Happy: "I'm going to shoot at the count of three"
[19:59] Happy: *readies arrow*
[19:59] Happy: "One……
[19:59] Shadowcaller: Suddenly a large bird flies out of the tree
[20:00] Happy: How large?
[20:01] Shadowcaller: Its one of the largest birds you ever seen, its almost the size of a human child
[20:01] Shadowcaller: It flies upward
[20:02] Shadowcaller: croaking madly
[20:03] Shadowcaller: Aegnor hears more sounds around him…
[20:03] Happy: *doesn't shoot*
[20:03] Happy: *returns to the party*
[20:03] Murska: Aegnor draws a dagger.
[20:03] Shadowcaller: Seomthing rushes out of the forest. charging against Cessie
[20:04] Shadowcaller: She fireballs it
[20:04] Shadowcaller: It appears to be a large wolf
[20:04] Murska: Aegnor throws the dagger at it and draws a sword.
[20:04] Shadowcaller: It collapses
[20:04] Shadowcaller: Two more large wolves comes out the foilage
[20:05] Shadowcaller: They rushes toward aegnor
[20:05] Shadowcaller: howling
[20:05] Happy: *shoot*
[20:05] Murska: Aegnor stabs the closest one as it leaps.
[20:06] Shadowcaller: The sheer size of the animal bring Aegnor down as he stabs it, you can feel its warm breath against your face
[20:06] Shadowcaller: The other one howls in pain as happy shoots it
[20:06] Murska: I roll backwards pushing it off me with the momentum
[20:06] Shadowcaller: And sprints toward her instead
[20:07] Happy: *drop bow, draw sword*
[20:07] Happy: *hold it out front, to allow the animal to impale itself as it charges*
[20:07] Shadowcaller: The wolf is lugged to the side by aegnor, it snarls
[20:07] Murska: I get up and stab it again
[20:08] Shadowcaller: The second wolf is mad of rage and is impaled by the spear
[20:08] Shadowcaller: The wolf manages to dodge aegnor and draws backward
[20:08] Shadowcaller: You can hear more animals closing in
[20:09] Shadowcaller: Cessie is trying to hide behind happy
[20:09] Murska: Aegnor uses his left hand to draw another dagger.
[20:09] Happy: "What's going on? Why are the animals hunting us like this?"
[20:09] Shadowcaller: The wolf howls again, calling upon its friends
[20:09] Happy: "This isn't natural"
[20:10] Shadowcaller: "I think these are dire wolves… but still!"
[20:10] Murska: 'Wolves don't attack people. Rarely in winter, never like this.'
[20:10] Shadowcaller: You can hear something above you head
[20:10] Murska: look up
[20:10] Shadowcaller: Its a huge black bird, it circles around you
[20:11] Murska: 'Can you shoot that thing?'
[20:11] Happy: *picks bow up from ground*
[20:11] Shadowcaller: Another wolves comes charging in, it positions itself besides its bleeding brother
[20:12] Shadowcaller: The large bird seems to notice what your doing and flies upward
[20:12] Murska: Aegnor moves between Cessie and the two wolves.
[20:12] Happy: *shoots at bird*
[20:12] Shadowcaller: You can hear snarls inside the foilage
[20:12] Shadowcaller: You miss
[20:13] Shadowcaller: The bird caw
[20:13] Happy: *shoot again*
[20:13] Shadowcaller: The wolves seems to avoid attacking you for now, waiting for something
[20:13] Murska: ((Ooo I are civilization))
[20:14] Shadowcaller: The bird is far out of range by now
[20:14] Shadowcaller: (huh?)
[20:14] Murska: Aegnor quickly gives Happy his larger longbow since he's busy in melee.
[20:14] Murska: ((Civ role PM arrived)
[20:14] Shadowcaller: (ahh)
[20:14] Happy: "Is that bird leading them, somehow?"
[20:15] Shadowcaller: You begin to hear snarls around you
[20:15] Murska: '…okay, we're in trouble. Any bright ideas?'
[20:15] Murska: 'Wolves can't climb.'
[20:16] Shadowcaller: Lets find a tree before they eat us?
[20:16] Murska: (Find a tree? In a forest? :P)
[20:16] Murska: 'Cessie, climb.'
[20:16] Happy: "Cessie first"
[20:16] Shadowcaller: (well a tree that is not in line with the wolves
[20:16] Shadowcaller: (we are in a clearing)
[20:16] Murska: Aegnor scans the surroundings for suitable trees, prefarably with large enough brances to get a steady arrow-shooting stance on.
[20:17] Murska: ((Ooh. Burn down the forest time.))
[20:17] Shadowcaller: Ehh, I think they are sorrounding us
[20:17] Shadowcaller: *sourrounding
[20:17] Happy: *shoots*
[20:17] Murska: ((The dead first wolf is still burning right?))
[20:17] Murska: ((Hmm… Is this clearing large enough to survive a forest fire in? :P))
[20:17] Shadowcaller: *surrounding
[20:18] Shadowcaller: ((Its not))
[20:18] Happy: ((no clearing is large enough for that))
[20:18] Murska: ((Indeed but I hoped the GM wouldn't know that. :P))
[20:18] Shadowcaller: ((Come on!))
[20:18] Happy: ahem *shoots*
[20:18] Shadowcaller: What do you shoot at happy?
[20:18] Murska: *throws sharp weapons made of metal at wolves*
[20:18] Happy: the nearest wolf
[20:19] Murska: *daggers, that is, not my sword*
[20:19] Shadowcaller: You hit it in the head, it dies with its maw wide open
[20:19] Shadowcaller: The other wolves charges you snarling and howling
[20:19] Shadowcaller: "Not a good idea!"
[20:20] Murska: 'Cessie, run towards a tree and CLIMB IT!'
[20:20] Shadowcaller: *cessie fireballs one of them*
[20:20] Shadowcaller: While runnign toward a tree
[20:20] Shadowcaller: *running
[20:20] Murska: Aegnor stabs a wolf with the sword, drops the sword while dodging the wolf and draws an axe
[20:20] Murska: is still holding a dagger in other hand
[20:20] Happy: Happy tries to stay between the wolves and Cessie
[20:20] Happy: continues shooting at them
[20:20] Murska: Aegnor slowly retreats with Happy.
[20:20] Happy: "If you have a better idea, let's hear it!"
[20:20] Shadowcaller: They are fast, and damn many, you manages to wounding some of them
[20:21] Shadowcaller: But now they are all over you
[20:21] Happy: *switch to sword*
[20:21] Murska: slash, stab, hack
[20:21] Murska:
[20:21] Happy: ditto
[20:21] Murska: back to back for coolness effect
[20:21] Murska: also whistle a tune pouring in all the magic I can
[20:21] Murska: to calm them down
[20:22] Shadowcaller: The wolves slash and clash, hitting Aegnor in the chest with their claws
[20:22] Murska: I haz armor. :P
[20:22] Shadowcaller: Yeah, I know
[20:22] Murska: Cessie whar?
[20:22] Shadowcaller: Anyway you manges to hit one of them with your axe, it wimpers away
[20:23] Shadowcaller: SHe seems to have been able to climb up
[20:23] Shadowcaller: Or the wolves have taken her lifeless body
[20:23] Shadowcaller: You can't see her atleast
[20:23] Shadowcaller: and its hard in the middle of the fight
[20:23] Murska: Aegnor growls fiercely.
[20:23] Shadowcaller: happy beheads a wolf
[20:24] Happy: Happy keeps fighting, snarling in barbarian rage
[20:24] Murska: 'Get to a tree and climb it!'
[20:24] Shadowcaller: One manages to bite her in the limb
[20:24] Murska: Aegnor slowly moves towards a tree, back to back with Happy.
[20:25] Shadowcaller: Another wolf goes down in happys outburst, but another leaps and pushes Aegnor down the ground
[20:25] Shadowcaller: It bites his ear
[20:25] Murska: I stab it in the eye
[20:25] Murska: and then get up
[20:25] Murska: ((Awooga, awooga))
[20:25] Shadowcaller: The wolf fies, but you still ahve its large body at the top of you
[20:25] Shadowcaller: *dies
[20:26] Happy: *push the body off of Aegnor*
[20:26] Shadowcaller: ((That would be funny thought:P))
[20:26] Murska: *push the body off of Aegnor*
[20:26] Shadowcaller: A wolf leaps against happy, hitting her back
[20:26] Murska: Aegnors' eyes turn red.
[20:26] Shadowcaller: All you can hear is snarls now
[20:27] Murska: ((hmm… I wish I still had my poisonous snakes))
[20:27] Shadowcaller: You manage to push the wolfs body away
[20:27] Shadowcaller: But happy is laying on her chest with a wolf on her back
[20:28] Murska: I get up in an instant and madly dash at the wolf on Happy
[20:28] Murska: attempting to chop it's brains out
[20:28] Happy: *try to roll the wolf off of me*
[20:29] Shadowcaller: A shadowy figure forms in the middle of the fight, the wolves seems to be confused by it (it looks like Cessie)
[20:29] Shadowcaller: The wolf manages to bit you in the back (only minor wound) before you can roll it off
[20:30] Shadowcaller: A wolf leaps agains the shadowy figure and passes right throught it
[20:30] Shadowcaller: *against
[20:30] Murska: Aegnor, perhaps realizing the wolves' main weapon is getting us to fall down or perhaps just mad with rage attempts to gather speed for a bullrush to get through the wolves.
[20:30] Happy: *draw a second sword and dual wield against the wolves, snarling and spitting, full barbarian rage*
[20:31] Shadowcaller: The wolves seems to be discouraged by all this and retreats a bit
[20:31] Shadowcaller: Some of them wimpering in pain
[20:31] Murska: Aegnor throws daggers at them as fast as he can.
[20:31] Happy: ((poor doggies :())
[20:31] Murska: ((Yup. :())
[20:32] Happy: *pursues*
[20:32] Shadowcaller: You hit a wolf at its throat, with yelp it fall to the ground
[20:32] Murska: Aegnors' hand, while reaching for a dagger, grasps the handle of his trusty throwing axe
[20:33] Shadowcaller: The wolves seems to have lost the will to fight with so many fallen brothers and crazy two-legs that they retreat back in the forest
[20:33] Murska: with a deafening roar he throws it at a retreating wolf
[20:34] Shadowcaller: You miss (for the first time ever) seems like your rage is clouding your aim a bit
[20:34] Murska: Aegnor runs after the wolves.
[20:35] Shadowcaller: The wolves continues to run away
[20:35] Happy: brb phone
[20:35] Murska: Aegnor throws away his fifteenth dagger and realizes he's all out, but doesn't really care
[20:35] Murska: wielding an axe and a mace, he keeps sprinthing.
[20:35] Shadowcaller: You are closing in on one of them
[20:35] Murska: sprinting*
[20:35] Shadowcaller: It seems wounded
[20:36] Murska: I finish it off while running.
[20:36] Shadowcaller: You lash out against the wolf but you seems to have misjudged the distance between you, you miss
[20:36] Happy: brb
[20:37] Murska: …
[20:37] Murska: well, once I do reach it, I cut it to pieces
[20:37] Shadowcaller: (hey, you did it while running:P)
[20:37] Shadowcaller: You do that, as you hit it the first time it howls in pain
[20:38] Shadowcaller: then you pretty much slaughter it
[20:38] Murska: (as in, run to it, slash at it, run past it)
[20:39] Shadowcaller: …cut it to pieces don't sound like "slash it"
[20:39] Murska: (hey, I only did that after I missed the slash)
[20:39] Shadowcaller: (Then we are on the same line here)
[20:40] Shadowcaller: The remains of the wolf are not pretty to look at
[20:40] Shadowcaller: One spine there, a head there…
[20:40] Murska: I look around for anything more to kill
[20:40] Shadowcaller: You see a spider:P
[20:41] Murska: I step on it, then retrieve the nearby daggers
[20:41] Shadowcaller: The spider is squashed
[20:41] Murska: ((Wrath of the Lloth omg))
[20:41] Shadowcaller: Otherwise the woods seems pretty empty, except for happy
[20:42] Shadowcaller: After you retrived the daggers that is
[20:42] Murska: okay, I guess it's about time to faint
[20:42] Shadowcaller: You feel very light headed, the world is spinning around you. Turning white
[20:42] Murska: (Lacking the inspiration to continue my killing spree atm. :P)
[20:43] Shadowcaller: Evertying turns white, and then black

Auto-response sent to Group Conversation: I am currently away from the computer.
[20:44] Shadowcaller: You wake up
[20:44] Shadowcaller: The surroundings seems to have.. changed
[20:44] Murska: '…*groan*'
[20:45] Happy: ((gah… mom won't let me go….))
[20:45] Murska: Aegnor's brain slowly gathers speed. One of his first thoughts… /Oof. I wonder what I killed this time…/
[20:45] Shadowcaller: Your in dark wood, it looks like the season have changed mysteriously
[20:46] Murska: (to what?)9
[20:46] Shadowcaller: All the foilage is gone from the trees
[20:46] Shadowcaller: Its fall, or maybe winter
[20:46] Shadowcaller: But there is no snow
[20:46] Murska: 'I slept for four months?'
[20:46] Happy: back
[20:46] Murska: 'This must be my record…'
[20:46] Murska: look
[20:46] Shadowcaller: (aegnor is in a dream)
[20:47] Murska: (:P)
[20:47] Shadowcaller: (you can see him laying down beside the carcass of a wolf
[20:47] Murska: I get up and look around
[20:47] Murska: in the dream, that is
[20:47] Shadowcaller: It looks pretty messed up
[20:48] Happy: Happy checks to see if Aegnor's alive.
[20:48] Shadowcaller: There is a cold wind blowing that no clothes in thee world would protect you against
[20:48] Shadowcaller: He seems to be breathing slowly
[20:49] Happy: Any serious wounds?
[20:49] Shadowcaller: "So… who are you?" A voice calls out
[20:49] Murska: (dream or real?)
[20:49] Shadowcaller: (dream)
[20:49] Murska: 'Me? I'm a no-one.'
[20:49] Shadowcaller: Some minor scratches from wolves, it looks like his armor have taken the most of the hits however
[20:50] Happy: *Look for Cessie*
[20:50] Shadowcaller: His left ear is bleeding
[20:50] Shadowcaller: "No-one? NO-ONE?!
[20:50] Shadowcaller: "You are one of the people."
[20:51] Murska: 'Who I am doesn't matter. What I'd like to know has more to do with 'where I am?''
[20:51] Shadowcaller: You can't find her directly
[20:51] Shadowcaller: "…your home, or well a version of your home."
[20:51] Murska: 'I have a home?'
[20:51] Happy: "Cessie?"
[20:52] Shadowcaller: (how loud do you say that?)
[20:52] Happy: (speaking voice, not shouting)
[20:52] Shadowcaller: No response
[20:53] Happy: "CESSIE?!" (shouting)
[20:53] Shadowcaller: "Oh, it was your home. Sorry but I can't really deal with changes."
[20:53] Shadowcaller: *you hear something moving* (happy)
[20:53] Happy: *whirl and look, sword ready*
[20:54] Murska: 'I had a home, yes… I don't remember much of it though. Who are you?'
[20:54] Shadowcaller: "I'm your friend here, don't worry, I would not harm you."
[20:54] Shadowcaller: "Not that I can…"
[20:55] Murska: 'Where are my friends?'
[20:55] Shadowcaller: You hear cessies voice in the distance (happy)
[20:56] Shadowcaller: "You have no friends but me. Everyone but us are dead."
[20:56] Murska: 'No…' Aegnor falls to his knees.
[20:56] Shadowcaller: "Happy?"
[20:57] Happy: "Cessie?" *move towards her voice*
[20:57] Shadowcaller: "But there is hope you know."
[20:58] Shadowcaller: "Where are you?" (the voice is closer to happy now)
[20:58] Happy: "I'm trying to find you,Cessie. Are you hurt?"
[20:58] Murska: 'What's left for me anymore…'
[20:59] Shadowcaller: "We can save them you and I, the last that is left of us."
[20:59] Shadowcaller: "Not what I know of!" *you can see her now, but she can't see you*
[20:59] Murska: Aegnor's mind attempts to reassert itself again.
[20:59] Happy: "Turn around. Here I am"
[20:59] Murska: 'But didn't you say they are dead?'
[21:00] Shadowcaller: *she turns around* "happy!"
[21:00] Shadowcaller: She run toward you
[21:01] Shadowcaller: "Everyone is dead here… but there are other places."
[21:01] Shadowcaller: "Other homes."
[21:01] Murska: '…my home… yes, everyone is dead there…'
[21:01] Murska: 'But I left.'
[21:01] Happy: "Aegnor's unconscious. I need to check on him. Follow me. Don't get lost."
[21:01] Murska: 'That's why I left.'
[21:02] Shadowcaller: *she follows, a bit confused but relived that you were alive*
[21:02] Shadowcaller: "It can all be rebuild you know."
[21:02] Happy: *kneel down by Aegnor, and examine more closely, doing first aid to his wounds*
[21:02] Shadowcaller: "With the right tools…"
[21:02] Murska: 'But they're dead… they can't be brought back. What use is it to rebuild the house when the people are gone.'
[21:03] Shadowcaller: "You do not know what happend, you weren't there."
[21:03] Shadowcaller: "There is things to save, things to rebuild."
[21:03] Murska: 'But I saw them burn!'
[21:04] Shadowcaller: "Bah, you saw nothing!"
[21:04] Murska: Aegnor sobs. 'I saw her scream…'
[21:04] Murska: '…melting…'
[21:04] Happy: (how does Aegnor look?)
[21:05] Shadowcaller: Not too bad, he looks relativily okay, just blood everywhere
[21:05] Shadowcaller: You think its the wolves blood thought
[21:05] Happy: *cleans him* "I don't see any reason why he should be unconscious. It must be the curse."
[21:06] Shadowcaller: "You do not seems to realize, those things may be gone, but the foundation is left. We are left."
[21:06] Murska: 'Who are you then?!'
[21:06] Shadowcaller: "We were hunted by a power way beyond our imagination, but that power can be turned…"
[21:06] Shadowcaller: "Me?" The voice sounds amused
[21:07] Shadowcaller: "I'm just thankful we are all alive." (Cessie)
[21:07] Shadowcaller: "I can't belive… there was so many dead down there." (Cessie)
[21:08] Happy: *shrugs* "Me and Aegnor - We're good at killing things."
[21:08] Shadowcaller: "I am Seos."
[21:08] Murska: (I assume I don't recognize the name)
[21:09] Shadowcaller: (the name sounds familiar but you can't place it)
[21:09] Murska: Aegnor gets up again. 'Why am I here?'
[21:10] Shadowcaller: "Well, when you were gone…I thought you were dead." *she has a pained expression.*
[21:10] Shadowcaller: "You are here to learn!"
[21:11] Murska: 'Learn what?' Aegnor seems to have calmed down, he's used to suppressing his emotions.
[21:11] Shadowcaller: A man in a green robe suddenly stands before you"
[21:11] Happy: "What? We were protecting *you*, Cessie. You don't leave the enemy alive to re-arm and attack again."
[21:12] Shadowcaller: He carries a staff with his both arms that he leans against slightly
[21:12] Shadowcaller: "These weren't humans…sorry I…"
[21:13] Murska: Aegnor calmly stares at him.
[21:13] Happy: "Even more reason to destroy them. They can't be reasoned with. You can't negotiate with a beast."
[21:13] Shadowcaller: "You don't seems to regonize me Aegnor."
[21:13] Murska: 'I don't.'
[21:14] Shadowcaller: "Too bad… too bad…"
[21:14] Shadowcaller: "Yeah, I guess…" *she looks a bit confused*
[21:15] Shadowcaller: "We have meet you know, it is sad that you no longer remember me."
[21:15] Murska: 'Indeed. I'm suprised, I don't often forget things.'
[21:16] Shadowcaller: "So… what happend to Aegnor? Did he pass out like last time?" *she looks at Aegnor*
[21:17] Shadowcaller: "No matter, you have made things a bit complicated for me. I wish to ensure that dosn't happend again."
[21:17] Happy: "I think so. We were both in battle rage."
[21:18] Murska: 'And what do you intend to do?'
[21:19] Shadowcaller: "Rage… do that really make you fight better? I was always was taught that you need to keep you cool in a battle."
[21:19] Happy: "You were taught to fight?"
[21:19] Shadowcaller: "Tell you about the "plan" I have,"
[21:19] Happy: *happy sounds confused
[21:20] Murska: Aegnor looks around for something to lean against. 'Well stop circling and let's hear it.'

[21:25] Murska: Aegnor looks around for something to lean against. 'Well stop circling and let's hear it.'

[21:26] Shadowcaller: (what wss the last thing you said happy?)
[21:26] Happy: [21:23] Happy: "Well, there's a time for keeping a cool head, and a time for raging. And knowing when to do each takes years of training."
[21:27] Shadowcaller: "As you wish, we were overthrowed by our arrogance Aegnor. We thought we could trust anyone."
[21:27] Shadowcaller: "Well, I think our warriors only had half of that training then."
[21:29] Shadowcaller: "Humans, pathetic as they were, we thought we should help them."
[21:30] Happy: "Not all cultures fight the same way. But battle rage is inevitable. You just wouldn't have seen it because you weren't at the front. You either learn to harness it deliberately, or it takes over anyway."
[21:31] Shadowcaller: "Yeah… I was alwasy told that losing control over your emotions was a bad thing."
[21:31] Shadowcaller: *always
[21:31] Murska: (nite, I'll read the rest from the wiki)
[21:31] Happy: ((gnight))
[21:32] Shadowcaller: (okay, your passed out anyway:P)
[21:32] *** Aegnor has left the conversation.
Session Close (Group Conversation 22431): Mon Mar 09 21:32:05 2009

[21:32] Happy: "Emotions aren't bad things, you know."
[21:32] Shadowcaller: "But you lose control over yourself…"
[21:33] Happy: "There are always things outside your own control."
[21:33] Shadowcaller: "But that don't mean you can let everything go
[21:33] Happy: "There is a lot of room between perfect control and no control."
[21:35] Shadowcaller: "But still, my brother said that only… lesser people lost control over themselves."
[21:35] Happy: "Your brother? The one who didn't even want to be human anymore?"
[21:36] Shadowcaller: "It was before that…"
[21:36] Happy: "Cessie, sometimes it feels like you were raised in a prison, never allowed to experience anything of real life."
[21:37] Shadowcaller: "Well, I weren't allowed out a lot, I just had to practice."
[21:38] Shadowcaller: "As gifted with magic I was destined for great things, or so they said."
[21:38] Happy: "But what is it all *for* if you aren't allowed to experience anything?"
[21:39] Shadowcaller: "Well, they didn't thik such things were nessecary really."
[21:39] Shadowcaller: "I was trained to be a wizard and a lady, not anything else."
[21:40] Happy: "But what do you *want* to be?"
[21:40] Shadowcaller: "I don't know… thats have been my only real goal really."
[21:41] Shadowcaller: "And when lady was out of the question, I became a full time wizard."
[21:42] Happy: "What about being a *person*? What about allowing yourself to feel?"
[21:42] Shadowcaller: "How do you mean?"
[21:43] Happy: "You're so afraid of losing control. What would happen if you did?"
[21:44] Shadowcaller: "I don't know really… I alwasy prefered to think rather then to act."
[21:45] Happy: "Have you ever been happy?"
[21:45] Shadowcaller: "Of course I have, I'm not some monster."
[21:46] Shadowcaller: "Being happy is not to lose control anyway."
[21:47] Happy: Happy smiles. "Yes, I guess for you, it is."
[21:48] Happy: She turns her attention back to Aegnor. "Funny how I seem to understand the elf better than I understand you."
[21:48] Shadowcaller: "I don't seems to understand neother of you… and you don't seems to understand me."
[21:48] Shadowcaller: "Am I so alien to you?"
[21:50] Happy: "No, you aren't alien. It's just…
[21:51] Shadowcaller: *neither
[21:51] Happy: …there's a sadness inside you. And a fear. And I want to help you banish them. But I think maybe it's part of who you are, and you couldn't lose them without losing yourself."
[21:52] Shadowcaller: "…Sometimes it feels like I don't belong somewhere you know?"
[21:52] Shadowcaller: "Like I'm not adapted to the world."
[21:54] Happy: "No, you aren't adapted to the world. It's too chaotic for you."
[21:55] Shadowcaller: "Yeah, I don't fit in anywhere since I left."
[21:55] Shadowcaller: "I'm not good at anything that "normal" people do,"
[21:55] Happy: "Do you…" Happy's voice drops to a whisper. "…do you think you'll have to go back?"
[21:56] Shadowcaller: "I can't… I don't think I belong there either." *she looks up the sky*
[21:56] Shadowcaller: "Not anymore."
[21:57] Happy: *whispers* "I'm sorry."
[21:58] Shadowcaller: *lets her shoulders drop a bit letting out a small sigh* "Don't be… maybe its I who need to change, not the world."
[22:01] Shadowcaller: "If I had not met you, what would I be? I would be completly alone."
[22:01] Happy: "I think the three of us were meant to be together."
[22:02] Happy: *watching Aegnor anxiously* "I wish he'd wake up.
[22:03] Shadowcaller: *looks at Aegnor* "What do you think of him, really?" *a sly tone can be heard in her voice*
[22:04] Happy: "He's… alive. In a way that we aren't. He doesn't seem afraid of anything."
[22:04] Shadowcaller: (This is another chat:P)
[22:05] Happy: ?
[22:05] Shadowcaller: (I got two chats with you open)
[22:05] Happy: (Weird. I only have one)
[22:06] Happy: [22:04] Happy: "He's… alive. In a way that we aren't. He doesn't seem afraid of anything."
[22:06] Shadowcaller: (Thats strange. well, you have to save it then.)
[22:06] Happy: ok
[22:07] Shadowcaller: "I think he is a bit stupid, or well complicated would be a better word."
[22:07] Shadowcaller: "He is smart but… don't think twice."
[22:09] Shadowcaller: "I really wish I could understand him some day." *looks over at him wishfully*
[22:09] Happy: "Maybe you'd have to become more like him to do that."
[22:09] Shadowcaller: "How would I do that?"
[22:10] Happy: "Let go."
[22:10] Shadowcaller: "Of what?"
[22:10] Happy: "Your control."
[22:11] Shadowcaller: "Its not… you can't just do that."
[22:12] Happy: "I don't think you'll ever understand him unless you do."
[22:12] Shadowcaller: "Well how then?"
[22:14] Happy: "I don't know what to tell you. For most people, losing control is easier than being in control."
[22:15] Shadowcaller: "Well I do lose control sometimes, when I'm afraid or something, its basic instinct."
[22:16] Happy: Happy chuckles softly. "I've never seen it."
[22:16] Shadowcaller: "When your hunted by wolves…"
[22:17] Shadowcaller: *she looks a bit steern*
[22:18] Shadowcaller: "But I think you mean in normal life."
[22:18] Shadowcaller: "Like… give me an example of losing control?"
[22:18] Happy: "The festival. Everyone there was out of control."
[22:19] Shadowcaller: "I weren't really… were you?"
[22:19] Shadowcaller: "Only in the dream… maybe thats what you meant then?"
[22:20] Happy: "No. Because I was worried. But I would have been dancing and singing with the rest if I hadn't been on guard."
[22:20] Happy: "But in the dream… you lost control, didn't you? And it terrified you."
[22:20] Happy: (need to go to bed soon)
[22:20] Shadowcaller: "Yes, it did…"
[22:21] Shadowcaller: (okay)
[22:22] Happy: Happy puts an arm around Cessie's shoulder and squeezes. "It's okay. You don't have to change who you are."
[22:22] Happy: "We won't love you any less just because you're different."
[22:24] Shadowcaller: *you can feel her relax* "And thats exactly the reason I'm with you…"
[22:24] Shadowcaller: "Maybe I will let myself change a bit someday thought."
[22:26] Happy: Happy smiles at her choice of words. "I think we should move away from all these corpses and set up camp."
[22:27] Shadowcaller: *she smiles widely* "You can sometimes get the best ideas."
[22:29] Happy: Happy carries Aegnor to a suitable campsite, and sets up for the night.
[22:29] Happy: (And I think that's a good stopping point)
[22:29] Shadowcaller: (indeed)
[22:30] Shadowcaller: Well that went quite well
[22:30] Shadowcaller: Too bad Murska left a bit early
[22:31] Happy: it's okay. The two of you can always finish the dream sequence when I'm not around.
[22:31] Shadowcaller: Yeah
