New Dys 105

[22:26] Happy [8]: Hope and Aegnor?
[22:27] Murska: sure
[22:29] Happy [8]: "Hey," she says to him softly. (I guess everyone else is asleep, elsewhere)
[22:30] Murska: 'Hi, Hope.'
[22:32] Happy [8]: "Are you…?"
[22:32] Murska: 'What?' He turns.
[22:33] Happy [8]: "Are you okay?"
[22:34] Murska: 'As okay as needed.'
[22:35] Happy [8]: "What happened… to Cessie?"
[22:37] Murska: His expression changes, revealing a glimpse anger and disgust as he clenches his hands. 'She… that /thing/…'
[22:38] Happy [8]: Hope takes his clenched fists in her own hands and waits.
[22:40] Murska: She can feel him shaking, unable to respond for a moment. 'You want to know what it did? It tried to rape her.'
[22:43] Happy [8]: Hope suspected something like that, so isn't as shocked as she would have been otherwise. She puts an arm around his shoulders, pulling him close, still holding his fist in her other hand.
[22:44] Happy [8]: "Oh Aegnor…"
[22:45] Murska: 'I'm going to kill them all…'
[22:48] Happy [8]: "Yeah." She keeps hugging him, knowing he must be broken inside.
[22:52] Murska: After a while, he unclenches his fist.
[22:53] Murska: Then he hugs her back.
[22:54] Happy [8]: "She's safe now. Because of you."
[22:55] Murska: 'She is… That's the most important thing…' She might be able to sense him not being fine with what he did, however.
[22:57] Happy [8]: "Did you lose control?" she asks in a gentle tone.
[22:59] Murska: 'I snapped. I… it was right for what it did.'
[23:00] Happy [8]: "It's okay…"
[23:04] Murska: 'No, it's not. I can't say it was wrong, but I shouldn't let myself do things like that.'
[23:04] Happy [8]: "Aegnor, it's the first time it's happened since we left the Tree."
[23:06] Murska: 'That wasn't so long ago. But I mean… never mind.'
[23:06] Happy [8]: "What do you mean? Do you want to talk about it?"
[23:07] Murska: He breathes deeply. 'I used the flute.'
[23:07] Happy [8]: "In that situation, I would have done the same."
[23:08] Murska: 'It wasn't wrong but… I'm afraid.'
[23:09] Happy [8]: "Of the flute?"
[23:11] Murska: 'Yes… not really. I've been using it more and more lately. And every time it's been a reason I can't argue against. I fear that eventually I'll become Nodo.'

[23:15] Happy [8]: "We'll kill the spirits that did this. And then we'll toss the flute in the fire."
[23:15] Wolfbane: (O.o Thats something to come in on…)
[23:17] Murska: 'Yet it's still saved us many times. What if we'll need it to beat the worm? Or if we get attacked by something else? I've thought of throwing it away many times, and the fact that I haven't just makes me fear myself more.'
[23:18] Happy [8]: (log updated)
[23:20] Happy [8]: "You aren't Nodo. You couldn't be. I don't want to destroy it to keep you from becoming that monster. I want to do it so you'll be free of it and it won't haunt you."
[23:21] Murska: 'Nodo was a speaker. Jaina loved him once…'
[23:25] Happy [8]: "You saved the tree. You freed the slaves of Gallion. You're nothing like him."
[23:27] Murska: 'Yet I can't even control myself.'
[23:28] Happy [8]: "You would never have done it if Cessie weren't in danger."
[23:32] Murska: He shudders, eyes glistening. 'And I feel so bad, I can't even help her right. I just don't know what to say. I need to… I need to…' *cue incoherent sobbing and sleep time for player*
[23:34] Wolfbane: (*hugs* Have a good night)
[23:34] Happy [8]: Hope holds him and cries with him.
[23:34] Happy [8]: *hugs*
[23:35] Murska: (*hugs* Not very satisfied with my reactions but eh, I'm tired and RPing something like that is hard » Especially while trying to learn swedish.)
[23:36] Happy [8]: (It seems pretty authentic to me. He was working around the issue in circles)
[23:37] Murska: (His usual outlet is music and he hasn't had any time for it lately)
[23:37] Shadowcaller: (RP can't be "wrong" Murska.)
[23:38] Shadowcaller: (And it's a hard thing to deal with, I liked it, it's just that I never described the situation.)
[23:38] Murska: (and now he's constantly being forced to make decisions, trying to save his friends and the world and all he wants is to be with Cessie. Every time he chooses something wrong, his friends get hurt or towns get burnt or stuff…)
[23:39] Happy [8]: Any man would feel helpless and enraged and frightened if a woman he loved was in that situation. And of course the flute is whispering to him that he can fix it, make everything okay, make sure nobody hurts anyone he loves again.
[23:41] Murska: You might've noticed nobody's seen him 'peaceful' after the Tree
[23:41] Murska: anyway, night
[23:41] Wolfbane: night
[23:41] *** Aegnor has left the conversation.

[23:41] Happy [8]: one time, at the wedding
[23:41] Happy [8]: he was peaceful then
[23:42] Happy [8]: didn't last v.v
[23:42] Shadowcaller: *sigh* my extra ending is pretty dark >.>
[23:42] Shadowcaller: Very dark in fact if you think of it…
[23:42] Happy [8]: you going to tell us?
[23:42] Wolfbane: I think it went downhill quickly for him once Ai died.
[23:43] Shadowcaller: Okay, hang on…
[23:43] Shadowcaller: This is based on the thing Murska said, that he would go ooc and kill Helios, remember that?
[23:43] Wolfbane: Yeah
[23:44] Shadowcaller: I have been thinking of this quite long…
[23:44] Shadowcaller: Anyhow, I try to keep this away from any canon…
[23:45] Shadowcaller: So the end, Aegnor have somehow gained control of the worm and can now kill it forever. But instead he orders it to kill Helios who is nearby, summoned in a circle.
[23:47] Shadowcaller: (Hehe…) Helios: "Wait, no… this… this have already happend, you should not do this. I remember now. I remember everything. Aegnor, you do not want to do this."
[23:47] Shadowcaller: (Response, something like "why not?")
[23:50] Shadowcaller: "Beacuse it will make you suffer endlessly and then make you into something else." Helios pauses "The worm will kill me, but then my energy will make you lose control of it, it will kill everyone you love, it will take every memory from you except the ones that will make you suffer. It will even take your name and mine. It will only leave you with the memory that you caused the death of them all."
[23:50] Shadowcaller: "You will suffer endlessly as the worm starts to devour all living things, unstoppable."
[23:52] Shadowcaller: "Then… you decide to change it, you are still a speaker, you will go to the great spirits asking for aid, first ressurection… but thats not good enough. The worm will devour your family as well, every people and spirit you have ever known and it will tell you of it."
[23:53] Shadowcaller: "So… after going throught my library you will find a way. THe dancer moves to a certain tune, if you could copy it, you could reverse the dream, transport yourself in time and space. If you can truly call it that."
[23:54] Shadowcaller: "You will do unspeakable things to make it so, draning the energy of the spirits you know, they would be consumed by the worm anyway right?"
[23:55] Shadowcaller: "But eventually… after endless sacrifices you play it. You are now less human or "elf" now, but you have no choice but to go on, you have already gone this far…"
[23:56] Shadowcaller: "So you are transported back… but it dosen't go well. You end up in both the wrong place and the wrong time."
[23:57] Shadowcaller: "In a human city long before any of this happend."
[23:57] Shadowcaller: "Drained from all your energy, you are forced to live on the streets among elf-hating humans."
[23:57] Happy [8]: (Aegnor becomes Helios? O.o )
[23:57] Shadowcaller: "So you hide in shadows…" (hehe…)
[23:59] Wolfbane: (Thoroughly creepy. I'm /really/ glad that this wouldn't happen.)
[23:59] Shadowcaller: "Eventually, you find yourself accepted into a chruch, but not even there you can find peace, you are ageing rapidly, almost as fast as a human."
[00:00] Shadowcaller: "And it's not even near the year when all this happends."
[00:00] Shadowcaller: "So you decide to steal your gods divinity. To become a god yourself…"
[00:00] Shadowcaller: "It's the only way, you have already gone this far…"
[00:03] Shadowcaller: "So you become a god. You set up a network of information, trying to find anything about Cessie and the others."
[00:04] Shadowcaller: "Many, many years pass… and you aren't Aegnor anymore."
[00:04] Shadowcaller: "Then one day you hear a prayer, Cessie."
[00:05] Shadowcaller: "So you decide to save her. But now you realize there already is another Aegnor, a real Aegnor, not the thing you have become waiting for her."
[00:06] Shadowcaller: "So you save her, but you don't reveal anything. You separate yourself from her… you have a new life now thats not hers."
[00:06] Shadowcaller: "But yet you keep working to kill the worm, the very thing that cuased all this."
[00:07] Shadowcaller: "You are called… by the other Aegnor soon enough. And the first thing you do is to get his memories. The ones you have missed up on."
[00:08] Shadowcaller: "But when you do, they are all menaingless, you don't even care anymore."
[00:08] Shadowcaller: *meaningless
[00:08] Happy [8]: (… wow… :( )
[00:08] Wolfbane: ( :()
[00:08] Shadowcaller: "But you go on, the worm must be killed for the greater good."
[00:10] Shadowcaller: "Throught manipulation and the endless network you have set up, you gain information about the worm and it's followers… you are willing to risk everything to kill it."
[00:11] Shadowcaller: "But despite all that… you find that the only ones that are capable of it, is you and the others."
[00:11] Shadowcaller: "After having failed to kill the worm at the tree, you move on."
[00:12] Shadowcaller: "Following them to Kyou, then to New Dys… memories…"
[00:13] Shadowcaller: "You find the other Aegnor hate you, hate himself."
[00:13] Shadowcaller: "Hate you so much that in the end, when the worm should have been killed he instead decides to kill you…"
[00:14] Shadowcaller: The shadows dispatches, and Aegnor finds himself standing face to face with himself, clad in a dark robe. "DOn't you see? You will repeat it again!"
[00:15] Shadowcaller: (Aegnor: "You lie!") Helios: "You were right… I really were a idiot…" *the worm devours Helios*
[00:16] Shadowcaller: (And yeah >.>)
[00:16] Wolfbane: I /really/ hope that doesn't become canon somehow. :(
[00:18] Happy [8]: Yeah… :'(
[00:18] Happy [8]: that's a really dark ending
[00:18] Happy [8]: and right after Hope insisted he could never become a monster
[00:18] Shadowcaller: But you must admit, it is pretty epic:P
[00:18] Happy [8]: indeed
[00:18] Wolfbane: It is
[00:19] Happy [8]: so… should we leave this in the transcript for Murska to read tomorrow?
[00:19] Shadowcaller: Pretty ironic aswell
[00:19] Wolfbane: It /could/ give him ideas. >.>
[00:20] Happy [8]: it's funny how he keeps insisting that he can't roleplay
[00:21] Happy [8]: but this has always been Aegnor's story
[00:21] Wolfbane: Yeah
[00:24] Shadowcaller: I really liked that as a bonus ending thought^^
[00:24] Wolfbane: So everyone else would die then?
[00:24] Shadowcaller: Would be a good book ending
[00:24] Wolfbane: heh
[00:24] Wolfbane: It would
[00:24] Shadowcaller: Yeah, basically:P
[00:25] Happy [8]: But what if, after numerous cycles, Helios finally found the words to convince Aegnor it wasn't a lie?
[00:25] Shadowcaller: Well, then everyone becomes Happy I guess?
[00:25] Happy [8]: And he kills the worm.
[00:25] Wolfbane: If this ever gets made into a book, you could always add it at the end as a bonus.
[00:25] Happy [8]: Helios then… ceases to exist?
[00:26] Shadowcaller: I suppose he would… maybe, maybe not?:P
[00:26] Wolfbane: No, he'd still be there, the cycle is broken
[00:26] Shadowcaller: It's not really time travel
[00:26] Wolfbane: But the results are still there
[00:26] Happy [8]: Then Simone goes to Helios and takes his hand.
[00:27] Shadowcaller: Why? o.O He is still Helios really >.>
[00:27] Happy [8]: But she has a bond with Helios.
[00:28] Happy [8]: And to find out that he was Aegnor all along, her father figure… she'd try to reach out to him.
[00:29] Happy [8]: And there is at least some part of Helios that feels an attachment to her. Maybe a teeny tiny microscopic part, but still.
[00:29] Wolfbane: *nods* Makes sense
[00:33] Shadowcaller: Well, thats the things that moves in my head;)
[00:34] Shadowcaller: Anyhow, should we do something?
[00:34] Wolfbane: If you can think of something
[00:35] Wolfbane: And I never thought of staying in Zubera's realm. Quite ingenious.
[00:35] Happy [8]: so does he?
[00:36] Shadowcaller: Who dose what?
[00:36] Happy [8]: does he feel anything for Simone?
[00:37] Shadowcaller: Uhh… thats a very hard question to answer. I mean in this sub-universe, he quite easily shrugged off Cessie…
[00:37] Happy [8]: I don't mean in the other canon
[00:37] Happy [8]: I mean in the real story
[00:37] Shadowcaller: Oh, in canon?
[00:38] Shadowcaller: Um, I would not really like to call it "care", but i suppose there is some type of understanding.
[00:43] Shadowcaller: So…
[00:44] Happy [8]: so I should go to bed
[00:44] Happy [8]: maybe you guys can do some more rp
[00:44] Shadowcaller: Okay, night

[00:35] Happy [8]: when we last left our heroes, they were hugging and crying
[00:35] Murska: somehow that amuses me
[00:36] Happy [8]: So… I guess eventually they stop crying?
[00:37] Murska: Yeah.
[00:38] Murska: Aegnor's sobs slowly die down, although he doesn't move yet.
[00:39] Happy [8]: Hope still holds him tightly. "I love you," she whispers.
[00:42] Murska: He calms his breathing. 'I know, I love you too. You're a real friend.'
[00:45] Happy [8]: "Do you trust me?"
[00:45] Murska: 'I would trust you with anything.'
[00:50] Happy [8]: "Then trust this: You are going to have the happiness you deserve. You and Cessie, together, somewhere peaceful. It will happen."
[00:52] Murska: He hugs her more tightly for a moment and then lets go. 'It will. This world doesn't have enough to throw at me that I couldn't slog through it with friends like you.'
[00:53] Happy [8]: (d'awww_
[00:55] Murska: (aw darn I never noticed there was a monster in the Cockboat Bay)
[00:55] Shadowcaller: (As I said, hard to see >.>)
[00:57] Happy [8]: (monsters will probably lose this game because of getting bunched up)
[00:57] Murska: (yay AoE 5d6 killing weapon being found soon)
[01:00] Happy [8]: (so… is this conversation over?)
[01:01] Murska: (hmm.)
[01:02] Murska: He attempts to smile, although it's left somewhat unfinished. 'You're a true healer.'
[01:06] Happy [8]: "And a prophet too," she says, trying to inject a playful tone.
[01:07] Murska: 'You should be quiet about that or we'll get an endless flood of pilgrims wherever we settle down.'
[01:08] Happy [8]: "I wonder if we can get the bards to stop talking about us so we can be anonymous again?"
[01:09] Murska: 'I doubt it. The story has life and has spread around. But it'll be modified so much in telling that nobody will recognize us, most likely.'
[01:09] Murska: 'There were a few stories of me on the tree once, and they've never showed up to bother me afterwards.'
[01:11] Happy [8]: "Good. I want to settle down in a tribe somewhere with Promise and Goldie, perhaps adopt another orphan or two… do you think you and Cessie will have children?"
[01:13] Murska: 'We'll see.' His smile is more genuine this time. 'I'd like it.'
[01:14] Shadowcaller: (Yeah, you don't need to give birth to them:P)
[01:16] Happy [8]: "You'd be a wonderful father."
[01:17] Murska: 'I'd try. That's something I'd never have thought I could be.'
[01:21] Happy [8]: "I've seen you with Simone."
[01:21] Shadowcaller: (Now, would Cessie be a good mother?)
[01:22] Happy [8]: (not naturally, no. She wouldn't be a bad one though)
[01:22] Murska: 'I don't know if Simone's quite the ordinary child.' He smiles.
[01:23] Wolfbane: (She's pretty good with Goldie, but thats probably because Goldie is a bit older.)
[01:23] Happy [8]: "Do you really think any child of yours and Cessie's would be ordinary?"
[01:23] Murska: 'Point.'
[01:24] Murska: 'Though I hope our child wouldn't end up like us.'
[01:29] Happy [8]: "What do you mean?"
[01:30] Murska: 'Running around doing a bunch of missions for gods and spirits…' (I wish MY kid won't be a PC)
[01:31] Happy [8]: "Ah, no, I wouldn't wish that on anyone. But I would hope your child would have Cessie's innocence and intelligence, and your strength and heart."
[01:35] Murska: 'And her voice, of course.' *smile*
[01:38] Happy [8]: "Of course." *smiling*
[01:43] Murska: He takes a deep breath. 'Thank you, Hope.'
[01:45] Happy [8]: She just smiles, and ducks her head, looking a little embarrassed.
[01:48] Murska: He places his hand on hers. 'I'm glad to have such a good friend.' Then he withdraws the hand and stands up. 'We should sleep, though.'
[01:49] Happy [8]: "Yes." She squeezes his hand. "Safe dreams tonight."
[01:51] Murska: 'Same to you.'
[01:55] * Shadowcaller has left the conversation.
[02:04] *
Aegnor has left the conversation.
