The Skulking Furrier
"This Bar Chain Location is at Roushzar II - Emperor Family Bureau An extremely out of the way bar. A total dive. But it has comfortable worn chairs and a well stocked variety of liquors and wines. A fire burns in a corner and there are tables throughout."
[ 2015.10.27 03:20:39 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote enters. She is decidedly not formal in appearance as might be expected, but is in an unmarked flight jacket with khakis, perhaps mindful of who currently holds Emperor Family Station in this system.
[ 2015.10.27 03:20:57 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote makes her way over to a chair by the fire and slips her boots off. She orders a glass of wine.
[ 2015.10.27 03:22:29 ] ValentinaDLM > /emote enters the bar. she is wearing her uniform ((the black getup she is by default wearing in her profile pic, but with red Minmatar Republic patches on her shoulders)).
[ 2015.10.27 03:23:29 ] ValentinaDLM > /emote looks around and spots Luna, and proceeds towards her, stopping along the way to tell a waitress to bring her a glass of mead
[ 2015.10.27 03:23:42 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote rises, recognizing Val from comms. "Hello, thanks for meeting me. Have a seat?" she indicates to another empty chair by the fire. She gives a nervous smile.
[ 2015.10.27 03:24:36 ] ValentinaDLM > /emote takes her seat with a smile and says "Miss Apenstar, you are dressed well today, I prefer this look even"
[ 2015.10.27 03:24:55 ] ValentinaDLM > It is my pleasure to meet with you, I admit I wasn't expecting you.
[ 2015.10.27 03:25:24 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote shakes her head in amusement. "Well I appreciate the flattery. I generally prefer something more elegant." She chuckles.
[ 2015.10.27 03:26:06 ] ValentinaDLM > I have been learning to appreciate thing that are a bit more plain.....and brown! lots more brown!
[ 2015.10.27 03:26:10 ] ValentinaDLM > /emote laughs a bit
[ 2015.10.27 03:26:37 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote chuckles again. She sips her wine.
[ 2015.10.27 03:27:56 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote looks a little more serious "well with the system control changing, I did have a need to check on matters. I did not plan to you see you, however. But I do think it is a good thing" She adds the last softly.
[ 2015.10.27 03:28:17 ] ValentinaDLM > /emote gets a glass of mead from the waitress, and she nervously glances at Luna "I have to worry, the exact reason you are hear though, I expected you to be the sort not to like me too much anymore."
[ 2015.10.27 03:29:29 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says lightly "I confess Matari in the TFL are not high on my like list. But we do have a mutual friend and frankly it's that mutuality that has me worried."
[ 2015.10.27 03:30:28 ] ValentinaDLM > Good, I hope you understand that while I differ politically and religiously, I am only better as a person with my employment, and my.....feelings they haven't changed at all.
[ 2015.10.27 03:31:39 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods slightly. "It does pose some rather grave considerations for his.... well being in the Empire, however. That concerns me."
[ 2015.10.27 03:31:53 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I found out by accident, a poorly chosen word."
[ 2015.10.27 03:32:22 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "What if the next one who finds out is Lieutenant Kerner, or Captain Shutaq, or worse, one of the Templar's high superiors?"
[ 2015.10.27 03:32:25 ] ValentinaDLM > /emote sighs and takes a big drink of her mead,
[ 2015.10.27 03:32:27 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote frowns.
[ 2015.10.27 03:33:26 ] ValentinaDLM > I know, I know, this is insanty, but what am I to do? I can't not love the man. Have you seen him Luna? Strong, kind, humble, loving.....understanding even.
[ 2015.10.27 03:33:55 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "He is a wonderful, dedicated man."
[ 2015.10.27 03:34:24 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says softly "I tremble to think that his entire career and livelhood could be destroyed by a careless word."
[ 2015.10.27 03:34:43 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote adds hastily "it won't be from me. Don't misunderstand me"
[ 2015.10.27 03:34:56 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I am not threatening you."
[ 2015.10.27 03:35:22 ] ValentinaDLM > I understand, if you wanted to harm me or him, you would have done so already, there would have been no need to talk to me like this.
[ 2015.10.27 03:36:27 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote looks very uncomfortable, and pauses before saying something. She simply has a small frown and furrowed brow.
[ 2015.10.27 03:37:18 ] ValentinaDLM > Tell me, Miss Aspenstar, what are you after here tonight?
[ 2015.10.27 03:37:41 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I think, if you love him, it would be best to set the relationship aside until circumstances change."
[ 2015.10.27 03:38:14 ] ValentinaDLM > /emote sighs
[ 2015.10.27 03:38:17 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Surely you do not plan to stay in the Militia forever? Your service record indicates you have.. changed contracts before."
[ 2015.10.27 03:39:06 ] ValentinaDLM > Things are different now, I have no reason to leave, I have been accepted to a clan, I have found my people....
[ 2015.10.27 03:39:27 ] ValentinaDLM > I want to do everything for my people that I can it isn't a contract like I had with Pyre.
[ 2015.10.27 03:39:47 ] ValentinaDLM > I am not here for a specific person, I am here for my people in general.
[ 2015.10.27 03:40:11 ] ValentinaDLM > The only other time I had purpose like this was with.....Nation, and It took technology to make me feel like that.
[ 2015.10.27 03:40:26 ] ValentinaDLM > And Thal....he isn't going to abandon his faith or his duty either.
[ 2015.10.27 03:40:35 ] ValentinaDLM > Circumstances are unlikely toever change
[ 2015.10.27 03:40:42 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote twitches slightly at the mention of Nation. She nods at ValentinaDLM's last remarks.
[ 2015.10.27 03:41:18 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says softly "Then unless the two of you break it off in the time and manner of your choosing, someone else will do it for you. it cannot end well for one of you."
[ 2015.10.27 03:42:44 ] ValentinaDLM > No, and it will end poory for him. Svetlana knows exactly who I am in love with, and she warns me about "being in the bed of the enemy" but, she won't punish me for pursuing a romance with the man.
[ 2015.10.27 03:42:54 ] ValentinaDLM > It was even a condition I put on my Employment.
[ 2015.10.27 03:43:11 ] ValentinaDLM > So Thal will be the one who has the punishment tht is beyond the emotional level.
[ 2015.10.27 03:43:27 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote sighs.
[ 2015.10.27 03:43:40 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "And PIE would discipline him. Perhaps even drum him out."
[ 2015.10.27 03:44:02 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Valentina, if I can call you that...
[ 2015.10.27 03:44:07 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "It would destroy him"
[ 2015.10.27 03:44:28 ] ValentinaDLM > Yes, Valentina is fine, or even Val if you like, I am not one for formalities.
[ 2015.10.27 03:44:38 ] ValentinaDLM > It would, but leaving him would too.
[ 2015.10.27 03:44:54 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote quirks a smile "Seeing as how we are alone, I am not either. Luna is fine for the duration of this chat"
[ 2015.10.27 03:45:00 ] ValentinaDLM > Me pretending to be someone I am not and destroying myself wouldn't be any better either.
[ 2015.10.27 03:45:25 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote frowns. She sips her wine, turning over Val's words in her mind.
[ 2015.10.27 03:46:42 ] ValentinaDLM > /emote takes a drink, and looks with sorrowful eyes at Luna. "Look Luna, I don't know what I can do.....Every path hurts the man I love, and he is taking such risks for me."
[ 2015.10.27 03:47:35 ] ValentinaDLM > Sometimes I wish, I could just get TCMCs for us both, to not remember who the other is, at least then he wouldn't have to get the pain and consequences of loosing this....but I won't to that to another soul.
[ 2015.10.27 03:47:44 ] ValentinaDLM > Not anymore, never again.
[ 2015.10.27 03:48:39 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Some hurts are more lasting than others. At your age trust me, there will be other men. And even if he doesn't believe it, there will be other women. But a man cannot live as a shell of himself which he would be if his career was destroyed."
[ 2015.10.27 03:49:12 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "You don't want that to happen to him. He would not be the Thal you know and love. He'd be a shattered hulk of himself."
[ 2015.10.27 03:51:12 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote exhales. She sips her wine again.
[ 2015.10.27 03:51:22 ] ValentinaDLM > /emote takes her hair tye out and lets the dreads flow free and looks down, nervously running her hands thru her dreads looking quite sad.
[ 2015.10.27 03:51:39 ] ValentinaDLM > He would hate me, that would make me the bad person wouldn't it?
[ 2015.10.27 03:51:52 ] ValentinaDLM > Shouldn't I be true to my feelings? to his?
[ 2015.10.27 03:52:05 ] ValentinaDLM > I don't even know what is "right" here and what is "wrong".
[ 2015.10.27 03:52:34 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I think you two need a complete airing then. This path is not one to blunder into with the other refraining from the step that it takes to avoid falling off because you assume what the other thinks."
[ 2015.10.27 03:53:36 ] ValentinaDLM > We did talk about it openly, Luna....he was on the balcony, and he said he wanted to jump.....
[ 2015.10.27 03:54:24 ] ValentinaDLM > Maybe.....maybe if I could make him hate me, he wouldn't have so much hate towards himself?
[ 2015.10.27 03:57:59 ] ValentinaDLM > Luna? do you think maybe that would work? To do something so terrible that he would hate me and leave on his own?
[ 2015.10.27 03:58:14 ] ValentinaDLM > Maybe then he could write me off, as just another Angry Matar
[ 2015.10.27 03:58:38 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote frowns "A man of his years and maturity should know better. That sounds almost like he is acting like a teenager. Empress... do you even know the legend of Romeo and Juliet? And you sound almost as bad:
[ 2015.10.27 03:59:03 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "the two of you are adults. You know what you need to do if your hearts and minds permit it"
[ 2015.10.27 04:00:42 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I don't know what else to say. Do you pray?"
[ 2015.10.27 04:00:47 ] ValentinaDLM > Luna......I have only been in love twice, once as a teenager with Svetlana, and to Thal.
[ 2015.10.27 04:00:55 ] ValentinaDLM > I am afraid, I might not really know what to do.
[ 2015.10.27 04:01:25 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says softly "Do you pray to anyone or anything? Shaman Siikanen used to pray to her ancestors"
[ 2015.10.27 04:02:19 ] ValentinaDLM > Yes, Sometimes I pray to my ancestors, or even the Elders for guidance.
[ 2015.10.27 04:02:30 ] ValentinaDLM > It is new for me but it is......
[ 2015.10.27 04:02:35 ] ValentinaDLM > well...
[ 2015.10.27 04:02:42 ] ValentinaDLM > It makes me feel much more at ease.
[ 2015.10.27 04:02:42 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I suggest you find some time from your duties and a quiet place. And pray for a day or so"
[ 2015.10.27 04:02:52 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Settle your mind"
[ 2015.10.27 04:04:40 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote looks at Valentina "i reeally don't have anything else to add. It seems you know what's at stake":
[ 2015.10.27 04:04:55 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "The two of you need to decide what is more important... and remember you will both live for a very long time."
[ 2015.10.27 04:05:18 ] ValentinaDLM > There is also.....a complication.
[ 2015.10.27 04:05:24 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote glances at Val.
[ 2015.10.27 04:05:29 ] ValentinaDLM > Can I tell you something in confidence?
[ 2015.10.27 04:06:06 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote gives a wry smile "I already am keeping one. What's another?" Basically admitting it's not her that's going to spill the beans on this, whatever else she thinks of this mess.
[ 2015.10.27 04:06:30 ] ValentinaDLM > My family, they got into....trouble over my actions.
[ 2015.10.27 04:06:40 ] ValentinaDLM > They were wanted for questioning in the Mandate.
[ 2015.10.27 04:06:59 ] ValentinaDLM > I remember how, the Ammatar fleet Admiral had his family made slaves even, due to his actions.
[ 2015.10.27 04:07:04 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote frowns slightly. She nods.
[ 2015.10.27 04:07:44 ] ValentinaDLM > So, I managed to get them before they were "questioned" and Thal has promised to provide them new identities and employment at the Vadam Estate.
[ 2015.10.27 04:08:03 ] ValentinaDLM > This means I won't have to reloacate them here and use the "right to Return" to get them citizenship
[ 2015.10.27 04:08:23 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote exhales.
[ 2015.10.27 04:08:27 ] ValentinaDLM > but you know full well what would happen to worshippers of the Amarrian God in the Republic.
[ 2015.10.27 04:08:35 ] ValentinaDLM > So, it made lots of sense right?
[ 2015.10.27 04:08:52 ] ValentinaDLM > but that means, Thal controls, in a large part, what happens to my family,
[ 2015.10.27 04:08:59 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote remains silent. She simply nods.
[ 2015.10.27 04:09:24 ] ValentinaDLM > I don't really know what the consequences would be if I were to, leave him.
[ 2015.10.27 04:09:57 ] ValentinaDLM > Also, my mother would never willingly leave the Empire or the Mandate, I would have to basically drag her to somewhere I could make sure she was safe.
[ 2015.10.27 04:10:47 ] ValentinaDLM > Luna, I know you are a wise woman, esppecially when compared to myself, but the way I see it that, is a pretty severe complication.
[ 2015.10.27 04:10:49 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I am certain the Templar woild not break his word, but that does make clear that you two need to discuss this thoroughly."
[ 2015.10.27 04:10:56 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "No.. trying to make him hate you."
[ 2015.10.27 04:11:59 ] ValentinaDLM > Yes, Thal also needs to be protect from.....any sort of audit of his actions or faith from his employers.
[ 2015.10.27 04:12:31 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Well PIE, as is the case with most Capsuleer corporations, does not have jurisdiction over baseliner/planetside matters for an audit."
[ 2015.10.27 04:12:39 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "The concern is always the MIO of course."
[ 2015.10.27 04:13:09 ] ValentinaDLM > Yes but, Thal says things that.....are problematic.
[ 2015.10.27 04:13:11 ] ValentinaDLM > I don
[ 2015.10.27 04:13:17 ] ValentinaDLM > t want to call it heresy
[ 2015.10.27 04:13:35 ] ValentinaDLM > but, I think some within PIE wouldn't be understanding.
[ 2015.10.27 04:13:46 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote frowns. She says softly "Perhaps it is best I not know that much either"
[ 2015.10.27 04:14:20 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I am a former enforcer for the Theology Council." She sighs "i can understand love, but too many details about that will cause... difficulties"
[ 2015.10.27 04:14:43 ] ValentinaDLM > Well, it isn't anything others aren't saying.
[ 2015.10.27 04:15:23 ] ValentinaDLM > Especially with some of the people seeming to work for Khanid who have links to nefarious organizations......
[ 2015.10.27 04:15:32 ] ValentinaDLM > but, I digress, it isn't important
[ 2015.10.27 04:15:43 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote purses her lips. She nods.
[ 2015.10.27 04:15:44 ] ValentinaDLM > just know I want to protect him
[ 2015.10.27 04:17:44 ] ValentinaDLM > /emote finishes her drink
[ 2015.10.27 04:17:54 ] ValentinaDLM > Luna, Thank you.
[ 2015.10.27 04:18:24 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "He is my friend"
[ 2015.10.27 04:18:40 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "YOu seem like you do love him. I am both relieved, and torn by that"
[ 2015.10.27 04:18:58 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I will pray for you two that you receive guidance." She smiles softly.
[ 2015.10.27 04:19:17 ] ValentinaDLM > I hope so, I don't know what to do.
[ 2015.10.27 04:20:48 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Thank you for taking the time to meet me." She sighs "I do need to go."
[ 2015.10.27 04:22:12 ] ValentinaDLM > Very well.
[ 2015.10.27 04:22:20 ] ValentinaDLM > /emote stands and smiles at Luna
[ 2015.10.27 04:22:45 ] ValentinaDLM > I hope that we can keep an open dialog about things Luna.
[ 2015.10.27 04:23:34 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods. "Yes, That would be good I think."
[ 2015.10.27 04:23:39 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote slips her boots back on.
[ 2015.10.27 04:23:50 ] ValentinaDLM > /emote nods
[ 2015.10.27 04:24:27 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Have a... blessed night?"
[ 2015.10.27 04:24:28 ] ValentinaDLM > Until next time luna
[ 2015.10.27 04:24:33 ] ValentinaDLM > Thank you.
[ 2015.10.27 04:24:38 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods. She exits.
[ 2015.10.27 04:25:06 ] ValentinaDLM > /emote goes to the bar, orders stiff drink and downs it before exiting
