    [ 2015.03.10 02:51:57 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Ave, again Ms. Jenneth. How can I help you?
    [ 2015.03.10 02:52:06 ] Aria Jenneth > There are ... two matters I wish to briefly discuss, Praefecta. First and foremost, I seem to be in need of a host organization.
    [ 2015.03.10 02:52:34 ] Aria Jenneth > I wish to formally apply to SFRIM ... albeit as an itinerant scholar, rather than a permanent pilot.
    [ 2015.03.10 02:53:34 ] Aria Jenneth > Fleet Commander Shutaq recommended I approach you.
    [ 2015.03.10 02:53:40 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods slightly.  Her eyes indicate she is thinking as she does. "I see.  Well Director Mithra has indicated to me she was willing to open SFRIM up to noviates....  Although judging from the IGS I believe it is not your intention to convert?"
    [ 2015.03.10 02:54:42 ] Aria Jenneth > No, Praefecta. My ... intention is to learn. This may ... lead to other things, but my core purpose is to observe, and ... aid others' understanding.
    [ 2015.03.10 02:55:17 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods. "I certainly am not opposed to that.  We have the Good Word channel for that reason also." -c
    [ 2015.03.10 02:55:41 ] Aria Jenneth > I am not a likely convert, it is true. But I may help others to find you, hopefully less ... hampered by ... their own preconceptions.
    [ 2015.03.10 02:56:04 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods.
    [ 2015.03.10 02:56:27 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "While I am the recruiter, i do so within the guidelines Director Mithra has laid down for me.  As this is a different situation I'd need to discuss it with her."
    [ 2015.03.10 02:56:40 ] Aria Jenneth > Of course, Praefecta.
    [ 2015.03.10 02:56:49 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I don't even think my usual interview questions could be used at all..."  she frowns slightly.
    [ 2015.03.10 02:57:10 ] Aria Jenneth > ... If I may humbly suggest, Praefecta ...
    [ 2015.03.10 02:57:30 ] Aria Jenneth > ... the purpose of an interview is normally to get to know an applicant.
    [ 2015.03.10 02:57:34 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods.
    [ 2015.03.10 02:58:19 ] Aria Jenneth > My ... purpose and methods are ... fairly readily visible. And I am willing to answer any and all questions you might ... seek to put to me.
    [ 2015.03.10 02:58:35 ] Aria Jenneth > ... assuming I know the answers, of course.
    [ 2015.03.10 02:59:05 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods. "My main concern of course is whether you'd use anything you learned against us.  Your past historu, which i know you don't recall, can be troubling."
    [ 2015.03.10 03:02:41 ] Aria Jenneth > It is ... a fair question, Praefecta.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:03:12 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote gazes at Aria's feed, remaining silent.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:03:31 ] Aria Jenneth > In ... some sense, I do not know the answers. It is ... not my intention ever to do so.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:04:54 ] Aria Jenneth > ... But it is also true that I ... have been a ... dark creature before. It may be that I will ... do so again, some day. It's not an end I am ... looking for.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:05:15 ] Aria Jenneth > It's not what I want to be. But then, I'm not ... quite sure what I do want to be.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:05:48 ] Aria Jenneth > The ... best answer I can offer is that regardless of the ... state of my soul, I've ... apparently always been a creature of integrity.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:06:12 ] Aria Jenneth > Even if ... sometimes of a sort that you might find hard to recognize.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:06:25 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods slightly.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:06:52 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Can you explain to me what happened to you? Everyone has danced around the issue when I hear pieces ofit."
    [ 2015.03.10 03:07:01 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Perhaps thay will help me understand where you are now.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:07:15 ] Aria Jenneth > I've never been much of a liar, Praefecta, or a spy.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:07:37 ] Aria Jenneth > The ... best I can do is probably to send you the log I received after my ... awakening, so to speak.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:08:21 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Okay.  May I share it with Nicoletta?"
    [ 2015.03.10 03:09:15 ] Aria Jenneth > You may.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:09:50 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "You've sort of explained why you are interested in SFRIM. And I've seen your posts on IGS.  But... why didn't PIE take you?  You have a lot of combat expeience, or had."
    [ 2015.03.10 03:10:12 ] Aria Jenneth > They, for very principled reasons, don't want me fighting for them, Praefecta.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:10:38 ] Aria Jenneth > I'm afraid Mr. Shutaq was ... sort of horrified when he thought the whole thing through.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:11:10 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > I respect his judgment. *she frowns slightly* why he was horrified?
    [ 2015.03.10 03:11:11 ] Aria Jenneth > And, absent that role, they're not quite willing to take me on. Though they have invited me to come along on fleet ops as an observer.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:11:48 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods slightly but does not interrupt
    [ 2015.03.10 03:12:20 ] Aria Jenneth > In Achur tradition, we have a Path of life that is the way of a warrior monk. Such a warrior does not fight for gold or loyalty, but the perfection of her soul.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:12:35 ] Aria Jenneth > Thus, the idea of a warrior scholar is natural to us.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:13:05 ] Aria Jenneth > The Path of the Sword is a path to insight.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:13:36 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:13:55 ] Aria Jenneth > Conceived from an Amarrian universalist moral perspective, however, this is indistinguishable from a mercenary, a killer for hire, who is simply paid in unusual coin.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:14:56 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I see.  Well Both Praefecta Mithra and Sir Shutaq would know more about than me."  She frowns slightly 'Still.. it's a path to try to perfect the soul even if not the one I'd prefer people take."
    [ 2015.03.10 03:15:10 ] Aria Jenneth > The idea that I would willingly shed blood to expand my knowledge was ... repellant. I have therefore promised not to shed blood for the Empire for this reason.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:16:04 ] Aria Jenneth > It is a different faith's conception of the soul, and the path to its perfection, Praefecta. Respectfully, I doubt Ms. Mithra would see it as a sacred path.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:17:04 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods slightly. "Well. Given that promise, I think that is not a concern. To me anyway"
    [ 2015.03.10 03:17:53 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "As an Amarr organization, we do support slavery.  While some people misconcieve our stance as abolitionist because we insiatt that they be humanely treated and that the purpose is theological, we are not anti-slavery."
    [ 2015.03.10 03:17:59 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "is that an issue, Ms. Jenneth?"
    [ 2015.03.10 03:20:49 ] Aria Jenneth > It would probably be an issue if I were Matari, Praefecta. I am not, and though I may seek to learn all I can of the institution and its effects, I have no position on it myself.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:21:26 ] Aria Jenneth > I have been avoiding taking a side on the current petition on the IGS for that reason.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:21:34 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods slightly.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:21:48 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "We do not require our members to take a positiom."
    [ 2015.03.10 03:21:58 ] Aria Jenneth > As an aside, Praefecta ...
    [ 2015.03.10 03:22:00 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "On the petition, that is"
    [ 2015.03.10 03:22:57 ] Aria Jenneth > My ... set of assumptions and preconceived notions I carry, most are Caldari. The Caldari do not use slaves, and never have, but, also, do not impose their own sense of right and wrong on other cultures. The same is ... true of the Achura.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:23:16 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods. "Alright.  And I have worked well with Caldari's in the past..."
    [ 2015.03.10 03:25:25 ] Aria Jenneth > *she nods*
    [ 2015.03.10 03:25:47 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "What would you want to do with us? Besides.. erm.. immerse yourself"
    [ 2015.03.10 03:28:30 ] Aria Jenneth > ... well ...
    [ 2015.03.10 03:28:59 ] Aria Jenneth > My activities are a bit circumscribed by my promise not to spill blood in the Empire's name.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:29:29 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > I see.  What if it was in self-defense?
    [ 2015.03.10 03:29:40 ] Aria Jenneth > However, I'm a capable scout, hacker, and ... well, even trader, actually. Though I would need to learn to pilot an Amarrian cargo ship.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:29:42 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > I ask this because we have a concrete war declararation threat.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:30:14 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > And I will expect everyone to help in such a case.  Especially pilots with.. well.. residual skills.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:30:37 ] Aria Jenneth > *she considers*
    [ 2015.03.10 03:31:27 ] Aria Jenneth > ... Who is the opponent?
    [ 2015.03.10 03:31:37 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > the threat has come from the Cult of the Lash.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:31:43 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > In writing to Praefecta Mithra.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:32:12 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > They are a blood raider organization that believes in salvation through torturing others.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:32:18 ] Aria Jenneth > Hm. Full disclosure, one of their pilots invited me to come for a visit today.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:32:19 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says that almost with a growl.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:32:23 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > I see.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:32:24 ] Aria Jenneth > And, I didn't know that last bit.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:32:51 ] Aria Jenneth > ... Hm. You know, the more I learn about my position in this universe, the more unsettling it gets.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:33:25 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says sofly "it must be.  You are almost.. umm.. like a child in terms of knowing who your peers are right now aren't you?"
    [ 2015.03.10 03:35:05 ] Aria Jenneth > A little. Also, apparently a neutral observer is a curiosity, a rarity, and therefore highly desirable even by terrifying people.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:35:19 ] Aria Jenneth > ... at least in some cases.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:35:51 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:36:19 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > I guess I am puzzled by one sort of....Well we call it the Royal White Fedo in the room..
    [ 2015.03.10 03:36:29 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > and I am afraid i will offend you with this question
    [ 2015.03.10 03:36:31 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote frowns.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:36:52 ] Aria Jenneth > ... even so, please ask, Praefecta.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:37:37 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Is there a moral line you will not cross or judgment you are willing to make? I am not discerning one yet.  You seem very.. neutral"
    [ 2015.03.10 03:38:11 ] Aria Jenneth > *she sighs* Possibly. I am ... not sure, myself.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:39:01 ] Aria Jenneth > My faith-- and please understand I only very recently learned that I still have it-- is of a particular Achur sect.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:39:10 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods slightly "I know you say you will keep you word.  So there is thatl."
    [ 2015.03.10 03:39:14 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "What sect?"
    [ 2015.03.10 03:39:41 ] Aria Jenneth > Shuijing. It means a crystal, of suitable clarity to be used for jewelry.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:40:01 ] Aria Jenneth > ... which is ... essentially our focus: clarity.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:40:42 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > " I see.  That sounds intriguing to be so focused."
    [ 2015.03.10 03:41:14 ] Aria Jenneth > Our sect teaches that to understand the universe, the Totality ... one must see both one's self and the universe clearly.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:42:15 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > In my faith, self examination is important...
    [ 2015.03.10 03:42:31 ] Aria Jenneth > Our ... moral code is based on context.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:43:25 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote frowns slightly. "That sounds a bit subjective."
    [ 2015.03.10 03:43:33 ] Aria Jenneth > For me to own slaves as an Achur, for example, would be a clear violation of my proper role. Achura do not own slaves, therefore I may not.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:43:39 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > I see.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:44:11 ] Aria Jenneth > ... But it is also wrong for me to tell you that you should not; you are not an Achur, and it is not my proper role to say how you should live.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:44:49 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Hrm. Well i suspect if I am get permission for you to join this will educational for each of us,...
    [ 2015.03.10 03:45:11 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Which again is sort of what Director Mithra was trying for with the Good Word. So I might be able to persaude her."
    [ 2015.03.10 03:46:01 ] Aria Jenneth > *she nods* Thank you, Praefecta. Um.... We do have ... three basic, guiding duties that our sect teaches come of being human.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:46:31 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote tilts her head slightly, she brushes some locks back hastily, as she listens
    [ 2015.03.10 03:46:40 ] Aria Jenneth > And that are more or less inherent to that state, as we see it.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:47:25 ] Aria Jenneth > Moderation, for to go to extremes tramples the lives of others.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:48:19 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods slightly/
    [ 2015.03.10 03:48:34 ] Aria Jenneth > Humility, for we are all of us mere fragments of the Totality, and largely blind and deaf to the world.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:49:50 ] Aria Jenneth > Compassion, for we are all part of this world together.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:50:14 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote pauses "... well I honestly don't think those are bad virtues to ascribe to.  The Cluster would be a better place if more people had them"
    [ 2015.03.10 03:51:12 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote stretches at her desk where she is.  "Well you  intrigue me. i will talk to my co directors."  She glances at Aria "Do you have any questions of me about SFRIM? I think I've covered enough for my co-directors to review."
    [ 2015.03.10 03:55:07 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > ((I also need to talk OOC for a moment after any questionsor if uou have none))
    [ 2015.03.10 03:55:24 ] Aria Jenneth > ... presently, no-- though I'm sure I'll have plenty later.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:55:54 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Alright then. I will try not to keep you hanging and I will let you know as soon I get word back.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:56:17 ] Aria Jenneth > Um. By the way, Anyanka Funk has just attempted to present me with a unit of slaves.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:56:27 ] Aria Jenneth > ... I thought I should maybe ... mention to someone.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:56:43 ] Aria Jenneth > I have declined.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:57:05 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote frowns "I wonder what's that all about. "
    [ 2015.03.10 03:58:30 ] Aria Jenneth > Um. Praefecta? ... I cannot fight for the Empire. But I could fight for you.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:58:45 ] Aria Jenneth > If you are ... willing for that to be the way of it.
    [ 2015.03.10 03:58:53 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods. "Alright."
    [ 2015.03.10 03:59:42 ] Aria Jenneth > ... *she bows her head* It ... feels as though I am skirting my word.
    [ 2015.03.10 04:00:09 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > She yawns.  "Well... I can talk to Sir Shutaq.  I am not so sure you are.  Good night Ms. jenneth and thank you."
    [ 2015.03.10 04:00:18 ] Aria Jenneth > ... I would ... feel better about this if we could approach Mr. Shutaq, it's true.
    [ 2015.03.10 04:00:24 ] Aria Jenneth > Good night, Praefecta.

    Essay Assignment

    From: Aria Jenneth
    To: Nicoletta Mithra, Lunarisse Aspenstar

    Directrix Mithra,

    You have asked me to write a short essay on my 'project.' You have specifically asked me to detail my questions as to 'the Amarr,' how SFRIM will be necessary or helpful in answering those questions, and the ethical concerns I face in respect to my dealings with SFRIM members.

    What you are asking for, I take in part to be a demonstration that I can communicate on your terms. But you've also asked me to explain my project. If I am to represent it truthfully, it will have to be on my own terms, in the way I think of it. Else, the project is not my own.

    I wish to grasp the place of the Amarr in the Totality, as a people, as a power, and as a sphere of influence. I want to understand, holistically, the role you play in the scheme of things. I also wish to know the same of each and every component part of the Empire, down to the last merchant and slave-- recognizing, of course, that this is an impossible goal. At most, I will manage a frail, wispy outline: a sketch.

    Dealing with you and yours in your daily lives will be a chance, possibly my best or even my only chance, to see the culture functioning, as it were, behind the scenes. Without such a place in at least one strongly Amarrian circle, my “sketch” will lack much of the depth it might have possessed. Its value, to others or to myself, will be much reduced.

    As for ethical concerns: I think, in this area, there is a great misunderstanding between us. I do not know what you expect me to do if given free ethical rein, exactly. Run roughshod over your people's lives, perhaps? Try to subvert their faith? Stress test them with a bolt pistol?

    It may be difficult for a person so skeptical of relativistic cultures to believe, but I do hold certain principles of broad applicability. These principles are not based on orders from God or the Totality, it's true. Rather, they come of the basic condition, as we see it, of being human.

    Moderation, for to go to extremes is to trample the lives of others.

    Humility, for we are all of us mere fragments of the Totality. The stars will remember none of us.

    Compassion, for it is only the Totality's patterns that separate one person's fair fortune from another's sad fate. We are all in this vale of illusions together.

    To my eye, it would be best to pass through your company like a shadow, hardly noticed. It is rude of me to intrude and disrupt your lives, to leave fingerprints on everything I touch. Necessarily, I will be an intruder, and since I cannot hope to leave no impression at all, I hope to leave only memories of a curious, harmless traveler.

    Likewise, it would be rude of me to act in ways that will bring trouble, embarrassment, or harm upon you and yours. I am a writer, and my words have the potential to do a lot of damage. This, I by no means intend to do. Confidences will be kept confidential. Identities will be anonymized by default. Strategic information will remain out of the public record.

    My religion is strange to your nation, and it is not my purpose to spread mine or to undercut yours. I will proselytize to none, and welcome the efforts of others to convert me, though I cannot promise to embrace the visions you and yours will offer. I am neither a blank page, nor a convert already won. I can promise only that what I learn here will remain with me, long after my sojourn ends.

    On a personal note, Directrix, we have been enemies, in the past. Reading over the records, we crossed paths many times, but in the end, it was I who defeated myself.

    Looking back, now, I see the trail of destruction I left. My followers haunt me, their faces sometimes kindly, sometimes angry or skeptical, but ... most of the time, there is an emptiness there, a ... touch of the abyss. One may even be stalking me, hoping to restore me to the person I was by force. Gods help me if I fall into his hands.

    The Captain Jenneth you knew had watched her father beat her mother to death before her eight-year-old eyes. She had endured a year as a half-blood in a State creche before being brought properly into her mother's family, who hated her. She lost her first life trying to prove herself to them. It was that family's patriarch that she later murdered during a sparring match in an instant of searing spite.

    Helpfully for me, she wrote a journal entry memorializing the occasion.

    I hold no distorting memory of this kind. I was born into this life. I have come to you weak, damaged, fragile, and afraid, but, if I survive, I will not remain so. Already, I am finding my voice, and it is neither weak nor fearful. Poisoned or not, damaged or not, I am stronger than I was.

    I am here to seek a vision of your society, and of your God, Directrix Mithra. It is for you to decide your part in how I will experience them.

    Thank you for your consideration.

    [ 2015.03.14 00:55:39 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > I think Lady Tig'res should be promoted to adept now, do you agree?
    [ 2015.03.14 00:57:50 ] Nicoletta Mithra > Hmn, well, she still seems very hot-headed, but... adept would fit her, yes.
    [ 2015.03.14 00:58:32 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Alright.
    [ 2015.03.14 00:58:36 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Also I saw the essay.
    [ 2015.03.14 00:58:39 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote tilts her head slightly.
    [ 2015.03.14 00:58:59 ] Nicoletta Mithra > So? *Nico perks an eyebrow.* It seems you liked it?
    [ 2015.03.14 00:59:05 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > I did.
    [ 2015.03.14 01:01:07 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > What did you think?

    ---------------------------------------------------------------

    [ 2015.03.14 01:03:21 ] Nicoletta Mithra > My apologies.
    [ 2015.03.14 01:03:35 ] Nicoletta Mithra > You got my last response?
    [ 2015.03.14 01:04:23 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > let me look
    [ 2015.03.14 01:04:37 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Nicoletta Mithra > So? *Nico perks an eyebrow.* It seems you liked it?
    [ 2015.03.14 01:04:43 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > I said yes, and then i asked what you thought
    [ 2015.03.14 01:04:52 ] Nicoletta Mithra > Ah, apparently not.
    [ 2015.03.14 01:06:24 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote tilts her had slightly
    [ 2015.03.14 01:06:43 ] Nicoletta Mithra > Well, I think that the assignment wasn't satisfied fully by it, but that it'd count as passing. So, you can grant her wish for 'something like an internship in SFRIM'.
    [ 2015.03.14 01:06:55 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Alright, thank you.
    [ 2015.03.14 01:07:00 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > We'll see how this goes.
    [ 2015.03.14 01:07:01 ] Nicoletta Mithra > Hmn.
    [ 2015.03.14 01:07:49 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote glances at Nico
    [ 2015.03.14 01:08:47 ] Nicoletta Mithra > Well, actually, there are some exercises she should be starting with, once she joined. For starters something simple, maybe?
    [ 2015.03.14 01:09:00 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > What do you mean?
    [ 2015.03.14 01:10:44 ] Nicoletta Mithra > /emote nods. "The coming week, as part of her internship, Ms. Jenneth will have to light a candle once per day, intent and aware of that act of bringing light into the universe. She should meditate on that, then. And I expect a brief record of the...
    [ 2015.03.14 01:10:59 ] Nicoletta Mithra > findings of those meditations."
    [ 2015.03.14 01:11:15 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > I see.  *she nods*
    [ 2015.03.14 01:11:42 ] Nicoletta Mithra > I trust she knows some method of contemplative meditation that fits and I don't want to prescribe one just yet.
    [ 2015.03.14 01:12:00 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Yes, being Archuran...
    [ 2015.03.14 01:12:22 ] Nicoletta Mithra > /emote nods. "Please inform her of this once she joined up. Alas, I probably won't be able to."
    [ 2015.03.14 01:12:35 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > I will.
    [ 2015.03.14 01:12:44 ] Nicoletta Mithra > Thank you.
    [ 2015.03.14 01:13:02 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > While I have you.
    [ 2015.03.14 01:13:28 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > I confess I had an ulterior motive in pairing you and Jennifer Starfall up in my  initial planning.
    [ 2015.03.14 01:14:04 ] Nicoletta Mithra > I know.
    [ 2015.03.14 01:14:24 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Is that something you'd like me to pursue? I simply wanted to see how you two got along
    [ 2015.03.14 01:14:53 ] Nicoletta Mithra > It was kind'a obvious. The problem with Ms. Jenneth is, she always has her worst enemy with her: Herself.
    [ 2015.03.14 01:14:59 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > I see.
    [ 2015.03.14 01:16:08 ] Nicoletta Mithra > She really didn't change in that respect. Maybe we can gently nudge her in the right direction, though. It makes little sense to try to help her, until she is aware of that fact herself and wants help.
    [ 2015.03.14 01:16:27 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > I see.  *she looks thoughtful*
    [ 2015.03.14 01:17:05 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > So the mediations are a step to that end?
    [ 2015.03.14 01:19:58 ] Nicoletta Mithra > Hopefully. *Nico shrugs.* It's like... an offer to take those steps. It's up to her to follow the invitation or to cast it aside.
    [ 2015.03.14 01:20:06 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods.

    Location: Gottin's private residence, Nahyeen VII, Zoar & Sons FactorySetting: A long vaulted room, paneled in honey colored wood,with comfortable chairs serves as an entrance to the Lamp. Private alcoves resembling compact studio living spaces open onto the main area, separated by frosted translucent privacy panels.Private Alcoves:Alexi's Sanctum Nico's SanctumExits:Gottin's Lamp - Chapel Gottin's Lamp - Bar Gottin's Lamp - Medical Bay
    [ 2015.03.14 02:07:03 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote takes a seat as she waits for Aria to be shown to SFRIM's offices. She is wearing her Chiffon Gown and a gold headdress.
    [ 2015.03.14 02:08:40 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote enters quietly. Having only just arrived, she's dressed more or less precisely like her avatar claims*
    [ 2015.03.14 02:09:20 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote rises. She curtseys and greets Aria warmly "Ave, thank you for coming all this way."
    [ 2015.03.14 02:09:30 ] Aria Jenneth > *she thanks the attendant who showed her in, then approaches and bows formally to Lunarisse. She's obviously been practicing a lot-- it's pretty good, this time.*
    [ 2015.03.14 02:09:49 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote smiles. "Have a seat, Ms. Jenneth?"
    [ 2015.03.14 02:09:52 ] Aria Jenneth > It was ... not a difficult journey, Praefecta. Thank you for inviting me.
    [ 2015.03.14 02:09:59 ] Aria Jenneth > *she takes the offered seat*
    [ 2015.03.14 02:11:53 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "besides the essay, did you have a chance to speak with Director Mithra?"
    [ 2015.03.14 02:12:36 ] Aria Jenneth > *hematite silver-black eyes flick over the high vaulted ceiling and the furnishings* I did, Praefecta. I did not have the sense she was much impressed.
    [ 2015.03.14 02:13:04 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Well." she smiles lightly "Director Mithra can be hard to read."
    [ 2015.03.14 02:13:19 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "We both had a chance to discuss your essay. I also spoke with Sir Shutaq.'
    [ 2015.03.14 02:13:40 ] Aria Jenneth > *she nods*
    [ 2015.03.14 02:14:17 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "On the latter, I was not able to get him to relent. Still, I suppose I can live with it if the other part of our discusson goes well for both of us."
    [ 2015.03.14 02:14:42 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Director Mithra understands your purpose is not to be a convert to the Faith.
    [ 2015.03.14 02:14:43 ] Aria Jenneth > ... You ... tried to get him to reconsider recruiting me?
    [ 2015.03.14 02:14:58 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "No, I tried to get him to consider letting you fly with us in combat"
    [ 2015.03.14 02:15:10 ] Aria Jenneth > Oh! ... of course. I'm sorry.
    [ 2015.03.14 02:15:37 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote shrugs "No apology needed"
    [ 2015.03.14 02:16:18 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "But turning to Director Mithra."
    [ 2015.03.14 02:16:57 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "She asked that if you join us, that while you remain, that you do various exercises from time to time that I or she may request. Mental and spiritual ones."
    [ 2015.03.14 02:17:03 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "They are not specific to the Faith"
    [ 2015.03.14 02:17:33 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "For example, as an immediate matter, if we are able to reach a common purpose on this..."
    [ 2015.03.14 02:17:44 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote frowns very slightly, but listens*
    [ 2015.03.14 02:18:35 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Directo Mithra asked - The coming week, as part of her internship, Ms. Jenneth will have to light a candle once per day, intent and aware of that act of bringing light into the universe. She should meditate on that, then. And I expect a bri

    [ 2015.03.14 02:19:19 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote tilts her head slightly and glances at Aria.
    [ 2015.03.14 02:20:12 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote adds 'we do have a chapel downstairs"
    [ 2015.03.14 02:20:38 ] Aria Jenneth > *slightly raised eyebrow* Very easily done. I ... cannot guarantee that my musings will be as she desires.
    [ 2015.03.14 02:20:55 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote gives a very light giggles. "I suspect. Still it is what she asks."
    [ 2015.03.14 02:21:15 ] Aria Jenneth > ... I seem to find it much easier to think in Amarrian terms when she doesn't ask me to.
    [ 2015.03.14 02:21:32 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > When it is unconcious, perhaps?
    [ 2015.03.14 02:21:57 ] Aria Jenneth > When I do not feel coached in my ways of thinking by someone who thinks I see things all wrong.
    [ 2015.03.14 02:22:14 ] Aria Jenneth > ... or so I hypothesize.
    [ 2015.03.14 02:22:16 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods. "Well, i won't be coaching you. i assure you of that. You are a sufficiently mature adult."
    [ 2015.03.14 02:22:39 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote gives a sheepish smile. "I can't speak for Director Mithra"
    [ 2015.03.14 02:23:29 ] Aria Jenneth > *she bows her head* She ... considers my culture's moral views ... she finds them unsettling.
    [ 2015.03.14 02:25:06 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > I see. There is also another matter of import. I must tell you in fairness
    [ 2015.03.14 02:25:56 ] Aria Jenneth > *she nods carefully*
    [ 2015.03.14 02:26:20 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Forsaken Asylum has declared war on us in the intervening time between my interview, and .. well.. just now. I suspect some people objected to our expansion east of Amarr.
    [ 2015.03.14 02:26:44 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > I don't expect much trouble in our usual spaces, still hauling routes and trade hubs could be unpleasant.
    [ 2015.03.14 02:27:32 ] Aria Jenneth > They seem to have a number of members.
    [ 2015.03.14 02:27:46 ] Aria Jenneth > Have they stated their reasons?
    [ 2015.03.14 02:27:47 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Yes."
    [ 2015.03.14 02:27:49 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "No"
    [ 2015.03.14 02:28:04 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I suspect it is because we claimed five pocos last night and someone else wants them"
    [ 2015.03.14 02:28:13 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote shrugs. She doesn't seem stressed ay all.
    [ 2015.03.14 02:29:15 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Still, i can understand why you may wish to wait a week"
    [ 2015.03.14 02:29:16 ] Aria Jenneth > Hm. Their founding corporation promises "war targets everywhere."
    [ 2015.03.14 02:30:16 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > https://zkillboard.com/alliance/99003634/ mMm
    [ 2015.03.14 02:30:18 ] Aria Jenneth > *she considers* When does the war go live?
    [ 2015.03.14 02:30:26 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > 24 hours.
    [ 2015.03.14 02:30:50 ] Aria Jenneth > Time enough to prepare.
    [ 2015.03.14 02:31:14 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Yes. We are hardening our POS's
    [ 2015.03.14 02:31:28 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > And I am going to send some best practices around for people to review.
    [ 2015.03.14 02:32:47 ] Aria Jenneth > *she nods* It seems unlikely that they'll focus on us specifically; at a glance, they seem to cast a wide net and see what tries to swim through.
    [ 2015.03.14 02:33:01 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Correct."
    [ 2015.03.14 02:33:31 ] Aria Jenneth > If there's material to be moved, I can help scout. I'm can't fight, but I can give you eyes on the enemy when you need them.
    [ 2015.03.14 02:33:49 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I appreciate that."
    [ 2015.03.14 02:33:54 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote smiles wryly.
    [ 2015.03.14 02:34:28 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I hate to do this, I do want to invite you, but not under a shadow. Please consider the invitation extended. You can take time to decide if you need to"
    [ 2015.03.14 02:35:58 ] Aria Jenneth > *she shakes her head* It is up to you when you are comfortable permitting me to join you.
    [ 2015.03.14 02:36:53 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "i am comfortable now, so long as the risk is one you can accept."
    [ 2015.03.14 02:38:27 ] Aria Jenneth > *quietly* I remember how to survive as an outlaw or nullsec wanderer, Praefecta. I ... should be able to deal with a few hostile pilots.
    [ 2015.03.14 02:39:12 ] Aria Jenneth > My ... only regret is that I won't be able to help in ... any more concrete manner than scouting and avoiding adding to their killboards.
    [ 2015.03.14 02:39:46 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods slightly "i can live with that, as I said." She stands. "come walk with me? There's one more thing I need to make sure you are comfortable with"
    [ 2015.03.14 02:40:39 ] Aria Jenneth > *she nods, and rises*
    [ 2015.03.14 02:41:21 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote exits into the bar.

    Location: SFRIM Offices. Bar. Nahyeen VII, Zoar & Sons FactorySetting: The main gathering area of the Society, the bar sports plush leather couches centered around a long coffee table. Low music plays songs from around the galaxy. The soft blue lighting is easy on the eyes, but still light enough to see what you're doing and where you're going. The shelves are filled haphazardly with bottles of spirits, clearly labeled. The whiskeys shelf label has been taped over by Freya and Lucas, each bidding for ownership. There is a shelf with rum on it, with a fresh label reading 'Alexi'. Above that, is Nicoletta's shelf, with juice mixes and exotic wine, with a few bottles of absinthe here and there. Cocktail mixers and a jar of little umbrellas wrapped with a piece of tape reading 'Gottin's Dont Touch!!' is on her shelf. There is a shelf with a pair of bottles, one full of Absynth and the other full of Chocolate Irish Cream and etched "Lady Anise Tig'res of the Khanid Kingdom." A long line of bottles of Quafe are on a shelf with a "DON'T TOUCH!" sign by Rhoxy. Johanes has a shelf with brandies and cognac and a lone bottle of smurgleblaster. One shelf labeled "Lord Anderson's" has three bottles of brandy from Gallente space, along with other liquors. Another shelf labeled "Lord Tash-Murkon" has a secure black metal container with a biometric lock with a Sapidum Distillery Emblem - 'Sapidum 255' from a Khanid small batch distillery on Oris..A new shelf has been added to expand Lunarisse's growing collection. She still has her spiced wine and other vintages from around New Eden, with a few religious texts leaning against the bottles. New to her collection is one tall, elegant bottle with amarrian scrollwork of Cream Liqueur, one tall elegant bottle with amarrian scrollwork of Chocolate Liqueur, one stout, wide bottle with amarrian scroll work of Chocolate sauce with added black tea. All wrapped in a box made out of a richly coloured, dark wood box patterened with khanid designs and filled with padding covered by black suede to keep the bottles safe. With "Lady Tig'res' Special Recipie" on the front of the box in gold leaf. All carvings almost burnt into the wood, with golden leaf in the recesses. The front of the box has a golden plated clasp and it has two golden hinges. It is locked and can only be opened by Lunarisse.There are a few other shelves that hold overflow for now, waiting for new corp members to claim them.

    [ 2015.03.14 02:42:01 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote follows Luna into the bar*
    [ 2015.03.14 02:42:18 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote enters and as she does, she pulls off her heavy headdress and lets out a sigh. She places it on the edge of the bar. "One thing you need to know."
    [ 2015.03.14 02:42:39 ] Aria Jenneth > ...?
    [ 2015.03.14 02:42:57 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote is looking around once again with great interest*
    [ 2015.03.14 02:42:58 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote jerks her head from where they came. "out there and in Empire space, and even corporation channel, proprieties must be observed."
    [ 2015.03.14 02:43:47 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote makes her way over to the plush chair and sits down. She slides off her boots and rubs her sore feet. "but here, is our safe spot. Please relax here.... Aria, if I can call you that?"
    [ 2015.03.14 02:46:25 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote tilts her head slightly at Aria trying to gauge her reaction.
    [ 2015.03.14 02:46:27 ] Aria Jenneth > You may. And ... *she looks around again* ... this is almost exactly why I wanted an inside look.
    [ 2015.03.14 02:47:16 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote smiles. "Good then. You can feel free to call me Lunarisse."
    [ 2015.03.14 02:47:19 ] Aria Jenneth > *mostly, she seems to be just absorbing it all with the voraciousness of a tiny black hole*
    [ 2015.03.14 02:47:41 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > ((we have a sleeping area and kitchen and library i need to rehook. MOTD got a teeny bit too long but I was humoring Jennifer))
    [ 2015.03.14 02:47:46 ] Aria Jenneth > But only here, and ... other designated areas?
    [ 2015.03.14 02:47:58 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Yes, on this side of the door.
    [ 2015.03.14 02:48:06 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > We are capsuleers here and it is just us.
    [ 2015.03.14 02:48:58 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote smiles. "Can I get you a drink?"
    [ 2015.03.14 02:50:27 ] Aria Jenneth > Um ... just tea, I think, thank you, Lunarisse.
    [ 2015.03.14 02:51:01 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods. She makes her way over behind the bar, careful not to knock over the small aquarium on the end. She begins to get some hot water.
    [ 2015.03.14 02:51:55 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote makes some tea and returns with two cups. She gives one to Aria.
    [ 2015.03.14 02:51:55 ] Aria Jenneth > ... hm. Oh-- and ... *she makes a couple of gestures at the air in front of her*
    [ 2015.03.14 02:52:07 ] Aria Jenneth > Invitation accepted. Thank you.
    [ 2015.03.14 02:52:16 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote looks puzzled. "Ah! yes,. Good."
    [ 2015.03.14 02:54:39 ] Aria Jenneth > ... *she notices Luna's puzzled expression* Oh ... um.
    [ 2015.03.14 02:54:56 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote sips her tea, still looking curious
    [ 2015.03.14 02:55:41 ] Aria Jenneth > *she holds up her left wrist, and slides up her "dress"'s gauntlet a bit, revealing what appears to be a bracelet of black resin*
    [ 2015.03.14 02:55:57 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "What is that Aria?"
    [ 2015.03.14 02:56:57 ] Aria Jenneth > Core hardware for my personal data system. It's ... actually attached; it interfaces with my implant set.
    [ 2015.03.14 02:57:34 ] Aria Jenneth > The old Aria was kind of a tech fanatic. My ... skills are a little out of date, but I'm catching up.
    [ 2015.03.14 02:58:52 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Interesting. Does it also record what you see and do?
    [ 2015.03.14 03:00:07 ] Aria Jenneth > If I direct it to. I ... try not to violate anyone's privacy, though. I'm ... not an internal security officer or anything, so it's ... not really appropriate a lot of times.
    [ 2015.03.14 03:00:26 ] Aria Jenneth > But it does help to be able to look back over old conversations and see what was actually said.
    [ 2015.03.14 03:00:37 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Alright. I trust your discreition then'
    [ 2015.03.14 03:03:12 ] Aria Jenneth > ... *she nods* I do ... try not to trample on people's lives.
    [ 2015.03.14 03:03:24 ] Aria Jenneth > ... it's rude, if nothing else.
    [ 2015.03.14 03:03:47 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods. "I confess I was not sure you'd join us. I saw you left Imperial Congregation and even the Good Word"
    [ 2015.03.14 03:04:09 ] Aria Jenneth > ... I was attending to ... a friend in a bit of trouble.
    [ 2015.03.14 03:04:22 ] Aria Jenneth > Sometimes channels are important. Sometimes they're ... just distracting.
    [ 2015.03.14 03:06:42 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods. I certainly can understand, but it does relieve me. I was concerned we had offended you."
    [ 2015.03.14 03:08:23 ] Aria Jenneth > ... I ... admit ... dealing with the Directrix was hard.
    [ 2015.03.14 03:09:36 ] Aria Jenneth > *she hangs her head* ... maybe I'm ... still too proud. Even now.
    [ 2015.03.14 03:09:37 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Director Mithra can be very... hmmm... well I suspect I understand"
    [ 2015.03.14 03:09:48 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "There was a history between your prior self and her yes?"
    [ 2015.03.14 03:10:46 ] Aria Jenneth > ... *she nods*
    [ 2015.03.14 03:11:59 ] Aria Jenneth > I ... thought she'd want to help. In the past, she'd ... encouraged me ... towards the light. As I guess she's still doing now.
    [ 2015.03.14 03:13:01 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote smiles lightly "I suspect so. Still she has promised not to be actively doing so. She understands your purposes"
    [ 2015.03.14 03:14:41 ] Aria Jenneth > ... *she nods* When we spoke, nothing I said ... seemed to reach her. She ... made very possible move to make me feel worthless. A charity case.
    [ 2015.03.14 03:15:18 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote frowns "well you certainly are not, in my view. Although your situation is rather uniqie"
    [ 2015.03.14 03:15:35 ] Aria Jenneth > Maybe it was some sort of test ... but I haven't felt so much like crying since I left Eha.
    [ 2015.03.14 03:18:02 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods. "At this point, i need to excuse myself. I have a second appointment tonight. is that alright Aria?"
    [ 2015.03.14 03:18:16 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Do you need to discuss anything else right now?"
    [ 2015.03.14 03:18:53 ] Aria Jenneth > ... yeah. I'm sorry. *she sniffles* Not really. You need to ... see to things. *she pulls herself together as best she can*
    [ 2015.03.14 03:19:13 ] Aria Jenneth > ... Thank you for ... giving me this chance.
    [ 2015.03.14 03:19:32 ] Aria Jenneth > Um ... I'll need a list of ... exercises ... I'm doing for the Directrix.
    [ 2015.03.14 03:19:45 ] Aria Jenneth > ... when there's time.
    [ 2015.03.14 03:19:49 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote she pauses. "You don't seem ok. Do you want to talk about it? Business can wait."
    [ 2015.03.14 03:19:54 ] Vincent Pryce > /emote enters the establsihment, smiling softly as he strolls in. Dressed sharply in an outfit befitting of a lord, but with distinct gallente the cut to the tailoring.
    [ 2015.03.14 03:20:12 ] Aria Jenneth > *she shakes her head* I'm okay.
    [ 2015.03.14 03:20:35 ] Aria Jenneth > ... really. *she hasn't yet seen Vince*
    [ 2015.03.14 03:22:41 ] Aria Jenneth > ... please don't let me be a bother.
    [ 2015.03.14 03:23:26 ] Vincent Pryce > /emote flashes a sharkteeth grin when he sees Aria, which quickly melts to a soft smile as he approaches Lunarisse.
    [ 2015.03.14 03:23:47 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Oh fudge! I still have that package I asked you to pick up don'ti?"
    [ 2015.03.14 03:24:00 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote twitches slightly.
    [ 2015.03.14 03:24:43 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote makes her way to the edge of the bar to a small globe of water and plants. Some singing can be heard in it."
    [ 2015.03.14 03:24:53 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote looks around to see who Luna's talking to*
    [ 2015.03.14 03:25:07 ] Aria Jenneth > !!!!
    [ 2015.03.14 03:25:55 ] Vincent Pryce > /emote chuckles softly before speaking "That and 'Milla asked me to pass this on to you as well." he pulls a handwritten letter from his breast pocket. Sealed with a wax seal.
    [ 2015.03.14 03:26:02 ] Aria Jenneth > *... and freezes like a deer in headlights*
    [ 2015.03.14 03:26:09 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says with forced cheeriness "A young child should have pets. I have a pair of the singing chamelions from Nahyeen for your little one". She trails off as she glances at the letter.
    [ 2015.03.14 03:26:48 ] Vincent Pryce > /emote smiles to Aria, but the softness is gone. A clear predatory aura is about him as he smiles to Aria "Rianne."
    [ 2015.03.14 03:27:06 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote glances uncertainly. "Do you two know each other?"
    [ 2015.03.14 03:27:25 ] Vincent Pryce > /emote smiles back to Lunarisse with a soft smile "You're right, a child should." he shakes his head "No. We do not."
    [ 2015.03.14 03:28:44 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote glances sharply at Vince "But you called her Rhianne"
    [ 2015.03.14 03:29:22 ] Aria Jenneth > *very quietly* Sort of like "Aria," but rearranged and wrong.
    [ 2015.03.14 03:29:57 ] Vincent Pryce > /emote hands luna the letter "A token, of our appreciation." he smiles a bit more playfully "I did. Didn't I. I knew her... Predecessor. Aria."
    [ 2015.03.14 03:31:33 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Oh." She takes the letter from Vince. "Thank you Mr. Pryce." She glances at the Globe "as for this, just keep it warm, in light, and moist and they will be happy. they are vegetarians. They will sound like a lullaby when they are happy"
    [ 2015.03.14 03:32:24 ] Aria Jenneth > *slowly, deliberately, she forces herself to get up, turn to face him, and bow in the Achur fashion*
    [ 2015.03.14 03:32:44 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote adds as an afterthought as she hands it to Vince and begins to attempt to back him towrd the door "make sure they don't get out unless being held. They blendin perfect."
    [ 2015.03.14 03:34:08 ] Vincent Pryce > /emote accepts the globe with a slight bow and a smile "I'll be sure to keep that in mind and pass the word on to Milla." he stops by Aria his demeanor changes again from a warm gentleman to a viper watching his prey. He bows. Staring into her eyes.
    [ 2015.03.14 03:34:57 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote has a hand on Vince's arm as she is gently pushing (tugging, and she is twitching furiously while trying to be cheerfully composed.
    [ 2015.03.14 03:35:16 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote holds herself rigid as a flagpole, visibly trying not to shake. She's not entirely successful.*
    [ 2015.03.14 03:37:02 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says firmly as they reach the door "Please give my regards to Mrs. Pryce and have a pleasant evening." She still has a fixed smile on her face.
    [ 2015.03.14 03:37:19 ] Vincent Pryce > /emote tilts his head towards Lunarise "Everything alright, Luanrisse?"
    [ 2015.03.14 03:38:12 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says lightly "we were just retiring for the evening Mr. Pryce. it's time to lock down quarters."
    [ 2015.03.14 03:38:28 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote just watches, jaw set, lips drawn, shaking slightly*
    [ 2015.03.14 03:40:08 ] Vincent Pryce > /emote looks to Lunarisse with soft smile "I migth come and claim that favour you owe me." he eyes Aria, making sure she hears him and sees his eyes. "But not tonight. Have a pleasant evening, and rest well. Both of you."
    [ 2015.03.14 03:40:50 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote twitches just a little*
    [ 2015.03.14 03:41:20 ] Vincent Pryce > /emote bows and makes his exit.
    [ 2015.03.14 03:41:32 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote closes the door after Vince leaves. Firmly.
    [ 2015.03.14 03:42:24 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote very deliberately returns the bow. Once Vince is gone, she leans on the counter, all of the starch going out of her at once*
    [ 2015.03.14 03:43:03 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote turns and looks at Aria with concern, She herself looks a bit rattled and walks behind the bar. "His wife used to be a member of the Society.... I had a present for the children.. but"
    [ 2015.03.14 03:43:16 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Do the two of you know each other?"
    [ 2015.03.14 03:43:23 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > *child not children
    [ 2015.03.14 03:43:58 ] Aria Jenneth > *she's getting an increasingly severe case of panicky shakes*
    [ 2015.03.14 03:44:08 ] Aria Jenneth > ... h-he's a disciple.
    [ 2015.03.14 03:44:11 ] Aria Jenneth > One of mine.
    [ 2015.03.14 03:44:37 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says "Oh Empress." She pours herself some wine. "The former Aria?"
    [ 2015.03.14 03:45:50 ] Aria Jenneth > *she nods* I ... knew we moved in ... some of the same circles, but ... I didn't expect to see ... to see him here. Not here.
    [ 2015.03.14 03:47:24 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says firm;y "if he is an issue for you, he will not be allowed behind those doors until and unless you say so. I had only asked him to come pick up a package"
    [ 2015.03.14 03:47:31 ] Aria Jenneth > I'm sorry-- I ... ... I ... *she folds her arms across her front, clasping her shoulders, trembling like a leaf*
    [ 2015.03.14 03:48:31 ] Aria Jenneth > ... ... I just ... wasn't expecting it. The Kameiras ... they're still guarding my quarters back at the Emperor Family Academy ...
    [ 2015.03.14 03:48:53 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says gently. "I am sorry, I didn't realize. " she frowns slightly "I think I may need to check with you before we have events to ensure there are no isses." She pauses "well with your past"
    [ 2015.03.14 03:50:57 ] Aria Jenneth > ... it's ... it's not that, exactly.
    [ 2015.03.14 03:52:52 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says gently "sit back down, please. Can you explain?"
    [ 2015.03.14 03:53:34 ] Aria Jenneth > *she starts carefully taking deep breaths-- in through the nose, out through the mouth; in through the nose, out through the mouth; etc.*
    [ 2015.03.14 03:54:11 ] Aria Jenneth > ... he's ... he misses her. Me. ...
    [ 2015.03.14 03:56:14 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I see....." she says slowly and then shakes her head "Actually I don't"
    [ 2015.03.14 03:56:17 ] Aria Jenneth > *she's calming some, bringing her shaking under control. At the same time, though, her voice is getting smoother but picking up a panicky edge* He ... wants her back. He's sworn he'll have her back. His mentor.
    [ 2015.03.14 03:56:48 ] Aria Jenneth > ... he's a man of his word. Everyone says so.
    [ 2015.03.14 03:57:01 ] Aria Jenneth > There are ... only two ways he does it.
    [ 2015.03.14 03:57:06 ] Aria Jenneth > Only two ways he can.
    [ 2015.03.14 03:57:17 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says carefully "Yes, I have seen he does honor his Word, I'lll give him that"
    [ 2015.03.14 03:57:27 ] Aria Jenneth > Either he finds her and ... ... and disposes of me....
    [ 2015.03.14 03:58:05 ] Aria Jenneth > ... or he takes me ... and tries to undo ... what was done. Up here. *she taps her head with a jittery finger*
    [ 2015.03.14 03:58:57 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote frowns deeply. "I will instruct the guards he is not permitted then. But this strikes me as a larger problem and more seriously frankly that the heathen war declaration."
    [ 2015.03.14 03:59:49 ] Aria Jenneth > I'm sorry. I've ... been expecting some ... sort of confrontation.
    [ 2015.03.14 03:59:57 ] Aria Jenneth > ... but ... not here. I wasn't ready.
    [ 2015.03.14 04:00:03 ] Aria Jenneth > I panicked. I'm sorry.
    [ 2015.03.14 04:00:51 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > No, the apoligy is mine, I should have been more careful considering your past. I wonder if any others will come out of the woodwork as ones we need to worry about. He is barred now.
    [ 2015.03.14 04:01:16 ] Aria Jenneth > I'll ... have to deal with it sooner or later.
    [ 2015.03.14 04:01:35 ] Aria Jenneth > He's the ... only one I think is going to be a problem. That ... I've seen so far, anyway.
    [ 2015.03.14 04:01:41 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > As I said, he was only here because Karmilla, my friend, married him. *she exhales*
    [ 2015.03.14 04:02:02 ] Aria Jenneth > I've ... met her. She seemed nice.
    [ 2015.03.14 04:02:40 ] Aria Jenneth > *she takes another deep, slow breath, and lets it out*
    [ 2015.03.14 04:02:52 ] Aria Jenneth > ... if he's ... following the Pilot's Path ...
    [ 2015.03.14 04:03:10 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Do you want me to talk to her? And she still has loyalties towards the Empire and the Society... " she breaks off "Pilot's path?"
    [ 2015.03.14 04:04:00 ] Aria Jenneth > He'll be cold ... calculating. He's a predator, and he knows it. He's ... embraced that ... part of himself. He won't ... be thinking of himself as a human being.
    [ 2015.03.14 04:05:23 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote simply nods and sips her wine glass.
    [ 2015.03.14 04:05:57 ] Aria Jenneth > If he's following that Path ... he'll consider himself ... at best ... a sort of guardian demon. Cold and ... ruthless as the Black. Calm and empty as void.
    [ 2015.03.14 04:06:32 ] Aria Jenneth > Passionless, except for ... whatever he chooses to ... moor himself to humanity, let ... himself pass for human.
    [ 2015.03.14 04:06:40 ] Aria Jenneth > *faintly* That's what I taught them to do.
    [ 2015.03.14 04:07:57 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says softly "I see. And how would you protect yourself from the likes of your former proteges?"
    [ 2015.03.14 04:08:47 ] Aria Jenneth > *she feels her way to a seat*
    [ 2015.03.14 04:09:01 ] Aria Jenneth > ... I'm not sure. I don't know if I can.
    [ 2015.03.14 04:10:27 ] Aria Jenneth > A ... lot ... will depend on the rules he's ... set himself.
    [ 2015.03.14 04:11:27 ] Aria Jenneth > The ... point of the Path is mitigation ... to let the ... Demented ... live alongside humanity ... serving a purpose ... almost unnoticed ... while still slaughtering millions.
    [ 2015.03.14 04:12:58 ] Aria Jenneth > It's a way for ... those we've lost to the Black ... to survive, and ... avoid attracting too much scrutiny.
    [ 2015.03.14 04:15:09 ] Aria Jenneth > It's not ... written for baseliners of any culture. It's written for people like him. A ... set of principles to aid long-term survival. *she's still sounding more than a shade panicky*
    [ 2015.03.14 04:16:20 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote listens quietly "I see, i think. Well this is a furrier hole."
    [ 2015.03.14 04:16:23 ] Aria Jenneth > ... I didn't ... design it to be guarded against. I don't know what to do.
    [ 2015.03.14 04:18:21 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says firmly "Carry on and We'll stand by you as long as you stand by us."
    [ 2015.03.14 04:18:58 ] Aria Jenneth > *she nods faintly* Um ... in essence, from ... the rest of the world's point of view ...
    [ 2015.03.14 04:19:25 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote glances sharply at Aria.
    [ 2015.03.14 04:19:29 ] Aria Jenneth > ... it's a code of conduct for serial killers who ... kill ships.
    [ 2015.03.14 04:21:02 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote grimaces "Well." She just shakes her head. "I think we should talk more later about whether there something we can do to help you. The Society is two way wormhole..."
    [ 2015.03.14 04:21:38 ] Aria Jenneth > Um ... as far as I know, he's the ... only one to go this far.
    [ 2015.03.14 04:22:52 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Alright" She rises from her chaor.
    [ 2015.03.14 04:23:00 ] Aria Jenneth > He's ... not invinciple. He's just another pilot.
    [ 2015.03.14 04:23:12 ] Aria Jenneth > *invincible, even
    [ 2015.03.14 04:23:55 ] Aria Jenneth > I'm sorry. I'm ... bringing complications.
    [ 2015.03.14 04:24:19 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says lightly "In our own way I suspect we all do."
    [ 2015.03.14 04:24:28 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Will you be ok tonight? You can stay here if you'd like or do you want an escort back to Amarr?"
    [ 2015.03.14 04:25:32 ] Aria Jenneth > ... I'll be okay. He ... made it clear there's nothing happening tonight. *she gets an odd look* Um ... also, a few people have been ... very insistant that he won't try to take me by force.
    [ 2015.03.14 04:25:47 ] Aria Jenneth > I don't know how they expect him to think he can talk me into letting him play around with my brain.
    [ 2015.03.14 04:25:57 ] Aria Jenneth > ... and probably break me for good ...
    [ 2015.03.14 04:26:57 ] Aria Jenneth > ... but ... it's true that I don't know him very well.
    [ 2015.03.14 04:27:07 ] Aria Jenneth > ... *she shakes her head*
    [ 2015.03.14 04:27:49 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Alright then. Try to have a Blessed Night. *she gets a soft expression on her face*
    [ 2015.03.14 04:28:13 ] Aria Jenneth > ... and you. Thank you, Lunarisse.
    [ 2015.03.14 04:29:16 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote murmers "none are needed" and smiles slightly as she departs to the sleeping quarters.
