    RP - "The Inner Ni Kunni" (Following Aftermaths Arc)

    Post by Lunarisse Aspenstar on Sun Mar 27, 2016 10:52 am

    This Bar Chain Location is at Mabnen IV - Moon 1 - 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.

    [ 2016.01.24 16:51:58 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote enters in her leather flight jacket and khakis. Her hair is damp as if freshly showered and hastily dried, pulled into a pony tail for neatness.
    [ 2016.01.24 16:52:52 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote glances around, then takes a seat by the fire.
    [ 2016.01.24 16:54:37 ] Zaichi > /emote made her way into the bar. She wore very comfortable Amarr commoner attire. deep ambers and soft dark accents. Bits of minor jewelry that to the curious featured small Angel flavoured iconography. Yet it was nothing too over the top. She carried ...
    [ 2016.01.24 16:57:02 ] Zaichi > a vague trace of subtle coconut perfume within her hair and walked with a very casual, comfortable and relaxed gate as her eyes wandered about the place...She seemed both at home as much as quietly relaxed.
    [ 2016.01.24 16:57:44 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote glances, recognizing Zaichi from her prior communication and a check Lunarisse did in the database. She rises from her comfortable seat.
    [ 2016.01.24 16:59:09 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Hello CEO Zaichi"
    [ 2016.01.24 17:00:31 ] Zaichi > /emote headed over and gave Lunarisse a genuinely warm, if almost affectionate... while not stepping over any boundaries smile. Her tone was rich with a serene evenness that balanced with a melange of accents and multicultural flavours > Ms. Aspensta...
    [ 2016.01.24 17:00:53 ] Zaichi > -Aspenstar
    [ 2016.01.24 17:01:02 ] Zaichi > ?
    [ 2016.01.24 17:04:08 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods. "Yes, that is me."
    [ 2016.01.24 17:04:45 ] Zaichi > I'm so glad you could make it. I trust your journey was uneventful?
    [ 2016.01.24 17:04:56 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Thank you.. bring willing to help" she says simply. She looks at Zaichi taking her in. "Yes, it was uneventful, thanl Goodness"
    [ 2016.01.24 17:06:03 ] Zaichi > Excellent..
    [ 2016.01.24 17:06:57 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Have a seat with me? The fire is cozy." She gives a wan smile.
    [ 2016.01.24 17:08:18 ] Zaichi > /emote smiled easily and just breathed in the air with a sense of acute contentment > I'd love to.. This place is so very cozy..
    [ 2016.01.24 17:08:51 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote returns to her comfortable chair. She gazes thoughtfully at Zaichi.
    [ 2016.01.24 17:09:57 ] Zaichi > /emote joins Lunarisse and takes a rather near by seat in a comfy chair.. > I hope i didn't keep you here too long?
    [ 2016.01.24 17:12:43 ] Zaichi > *keep you waiting
    [ 2016.01.24 17:15:07 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Not at all." she says quietly.
    [ 2016.01.24 17:15:14 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "How much Did Velerra tell you?"
    [ 2016.01.24 17:16:07 ] Zaichi > ... And please, Simply Zaichi is fine. As for the logistics of the situation, I was aware that the population would likely be less than fifty thousand. .
    [ 2016.01.24 17:18:27 ] Zaichi > Beyond that, not a great deal.
    [ 2016.01.24 17:25:39 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Alright. Well the number at present is 6,773." She sighs. "Less than when I spoke with Zelarra for both good and bad reasons."
    [ 2016.01.24 17:26:48 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "A number recovered faster than anticipated and could be placed with Holders. Others unfortunately... died from the long-term effects of the injuries they suffered."
    [ 2016.01.24 17:27:41 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > 'What remains is fairly traumitized cohort still dealing with the effects if the treatment that the Butcher, Nauplius. did to them."
    [ 2016.01.24 17:29:10 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote looks carefully at Zaichi for any reaction as she explains "Velerra suggested you might be willng and able to handle.. long-term rehabilition..."
    [ 2016.01.24 17:29:11 ] Zaichi > /emote frowns and regards Luna with look of regret as much as compassion > That's awful.
    [ 2016.01.24 17:29:23 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods slowly.
    [ 2016.01.24 17:30:53 ] Zaichi > That being said... Yes. I, ... we do have the facilities for attending to the needs of troubled people here.
    [ 2016.01.24 17:32:10 ] Zaichi > We have settlements, long term care facilities, and infastructure prepared for cases such as you've had to attend to in recent times.
    [ 2016.01.24 17:32:58 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "What ordinarily happens to the persons cared for.. once care is no longer needed."
    [ 2016.01.24 17:35:03 ] Zaichi > They are presented with options to remain within the communities generated, continuing to develop...and heal if they've suffered acute ... hardships.
    [ 2016.01.24 17:35:37 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says carefully "You'll forgive me.. but I always assumed the Angel Cartel had a profit motive."
    [ 2016.01.24 17:36:35 ] Zaichi > /emote smiles slightly > Of course...The Cartel does. Honestly it's a matter of the players involved and their wishes as well.
    [ 2016.01.24 17:37:07 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods. "You would be truly willing to help these people.. and.. return them to me if they ever recover enough?" Her eyes show a mix of hope and wariness.
    [ 2016.01.24 17:39:12 ] Zaichi > Generally, depending on who wishes the provisions made, we try to accomodate all involved. The Cartel is often left with those who are unfit for traditional socialization within the empire, frequently due to one health reason or another.
    [ 2016.01.24 17:40:21 ] Zaichi > At worst ? It is a service...for all involved.
    [ 2016.01.24 17:40:40 ] Zaichi > In that context, yes.
    [ 2016.01.24 17:41:45 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "To be clear, It my desire.. in light of my responsibilities to the Society, both my capsuleer one and the Empire, that they be returned to me for re-homing with an appropriate Holder."
    [ 2016.01.24 17:41:57 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I am willing to help pay your costs.. "
    [ 2016.01.24 17:42:17 ] Zaichi > The numbers moved within the empire and curse as a whole are vast. They make short term, small scale choices, ... senseless. As such i understand your concerns.
    [ 2016.01.24 17:43:32 ] Zaichi > /emote looks to Luna thoughtfully > As for costs. Would you be agreeable to a floating boon?
    [ 2016.01.24 17:43:43 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says warily "Well this.. small scale choice is a large one for me." She pauses "A floating boon?'
    [ 2016.01.24 17:44:51 ] Zaichi > /emote nods > A favour, redeemable at a later date?
    [ 2016.01.24 17:45:25 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I always told my children not to make promises I can't keep." She gives a small frown. "I guess it depends on the favor."
    [ 2016.01.24 17:48:07 ] Zaichi > /emote nods > Of course. An understanding then of needs, and support provided? To be similarly recompensed at another time?
    [ 2016.01.24 17:48:42 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods. "As long as you recognize my .. legal and ethical constraints. I am happy to return the favor within those boundaries."
    [ 2016.01.24 17:49:53 ] Zaichi > Yes. I fully understand and wouldn't dream of taking you to places you'd rather not go.
    [ 2016.01.24 17:51:02 ] Zaichi > I just... i don't enjoy exchanging raw currency for human lives, mmm?
    [ 2016.01.24 17:51:14 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods.
    [ 2016.01.24 17:51:52 ] Zaichi > I... like people. I like you.. But you don't pay for somethings.
    [ 2016.01.24 17:52:00 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Alright then. I.. really appreciate your willingness to help"
    [ 2016.01.24 17:52:26 ] Zaichi > Or at least, i don't feel that way.
    [ 2016.01.24 17:53:09 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods. "I can transfer them over whenever you give the word. I think we have.. an understanding." She glanzes at Zaichi.
    [ 2016.01.24 17:54:29 ] Zaichi > /emote nods again, her tone warm, gaze relaxed and oozing with comfortable contentment as they sit by the fire. She withdrew a datapad and connected it to the stations' network > Please begin the transfer at your leisure....
    [ 2016.01.24 17:58:22 ] Zaichi > /emote had input her mark and begun a direct trade contract process before she handed the datapad to Luna..
    [ 2016.01.24 17:58:26 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote eye's glaze. She sends some commands to her crew and chief steward.
    [ 2016.01.24 17:59:36 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote glances at Zaichi.
    [ 2016.01.24 18:00:12 ] Zaichi > /emote looks to Lunarisse then and notes > You would be free to visit if you wish, of course.
    [ 2016.01.24 18:00:45 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says softly "I'd like that.. and I suspect my colleague Aria Jenneth may as well." She questions "Is the latter an issue?
    [ 2016.01.24 18:03:56 ] Zaichi > Mmm..... In principal no issue. In practice she is complicated. But with some forewarning of her intended presence planetside i doubt it'd be a problem.
    [ 2016.01.24 18:05:10 ] Zaichi > As, the islands we built are a wide ranging community of peoples. Now and then other, ... angels may be prone to paying visits to monitor the progress of their humanitarian investments.
    [ 2016.01.24 18:05:40 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods slightly. "Yes.. I see. Her prior.. well. 'self'"
    [ 2016.01.24 18:06:17 ] Zaichi > In brief. She's complicated. With planning and adjustments? No issue.
    [ 2016.01.24 18:06:31 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Well." she smiles a little warmer "Thank you. I will anticipate meeting you in the future, then again."
    [ 2016.01.24 18:06:45 ] Zaichi > I'd rather not be responsible for the consequences of unexpected.. visits and complications.
    [ 2016.01.24 18:06:54 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods.
    [ 2016.01.24 18:08:04 ] Zaichi > /emote smiles warmly dancing that fine line between politess and affection > I look forward to spending time with you within our community planetside.
    [ 2016.01.24 18:08:47 ] Zaichi > I'm sure you'll come to appreciate the value we offer here..
    [ 2016.01.24 18:09:36 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I pray that is so." She rises. "Please pardon my lack of further socialization. Unfortunately, I need to run."
    [ 2016.01.24 18:09:37 ] Zaichi > To the poeple we serve with the communities, and from afar.
    [ 2016.01.24 18:09:43 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods.
    [ 2016.01.24 18:10:00 ] Zaichi > Take care, Ms. Aspenstar. Fly safe.
    [ 2016.01.24 18:10:18 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Have a Blessed Day."
    [ 2016.01.24 18:10:53 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote exits.
    [ 2016.01.24 18:11:03 ] Zaichi > /emote rose and offered Luna a very slight bow before she too departed

    A few weeks later...


    ---------------------------------------------------------------
    Nourriture An open concept, well appointed restaurant within the heart of a station docked Machariel, for clients seeking dishes influenced by the multicultural demographics of Curse. In particular the Tranquility constellation. Alcohol is served in limited quantities and at house discretion purely in conjunction with full course meals. The house stocks ample tea reserves and various soft refreshments. Exceptionally prompt and direct transport to and from is provided by InterBus for all who make a dining reservation ahead of time. The management reserves the right of employing ventilation dispersed handwavium nanite powder to maintain a civil, safe and secure environment for all guests.

    [ 2016.02.26 02:53:37 ] Zaichi > /emote had sent Luna a note, expressing a desire to meet in Amarr in the ship's restaurant. Staff there would have been on hand to escort Luna to a non-public lounge
    [ 2016.02.26 02:55:09 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote enters. She is dressed in businesswear. Typically a beige suit jacket with a long skirt. She glances about as she does.
    [ 2016.02.26 02:55:44 ] Zaichi > *The lounge was a very warm and subdued place, wood accents and plenty of plush furniture were set about, accompanied by an easily accessible, open bar. The place was very informal and felt lived in..*
    [ 2016.02.26 02:56:31 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote smooths her skirt. She looks for a comfortable seat near the open bar.
    [ 2016.02.26 02:57:50 ] Zaichi > /emote had arrived in a very casual and relaxed ensemble of cotton, wool and soft gentle leather with various tones of red, black and occasional silver streaks working as highlighting here and there. For the most part the style was a mixture of
    [ 2016.02.26 03:00:22 ] Zaichi > conservatism and laissez faire revelation...walking the line while staying on the side of comfort and decency. As ever very subtle ornamentation referenced the angels but nothing was particularly over the top, and only if one cared to pay attention..
    [ 2016.02.26 03:00:57 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote rises. "Hello Ms. Zaichi." She smiles slightly.
    [ 2016.02.26 03:01:36 ] Zaichi > /emote made her way in and let the door close behind her and offered Luna a warm genial smile > Just, .. Zaichi, please.
    [ 2016.02.26 03:02:13 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods slightly "as you wish..." she looks at Zaichi "I confess I didn't expect to hear from you so soon. Are they alright?"
    [ 2016.02.26 03:03:33 ] Zaichi > /emote walked toward the bar and looked to Luna > May i offer you something? ... And yes. They're slowly settling in... A lot of initial review and intake of each on a case by case basis..
    [ 2016.02.26 03:04:18 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Something sweet please." She nods, "I am sure quite a bit of initial review and intake"
    [ 2016.02.26 03:06:46 ] Zaichi > /emote nods and fixes Luna ... a sweet creamy concoction that held traces of a ruddy fruit alongside a vein of maple syrup> Yes.
    [ 2016.02.26 03:07:29 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote looks at the drink with interest "What is this called?"
    [ 2016.02.26 03:07:56 ] Zaichi > /emote fixes herself one too.. > ... Rings of Hope.
    [ 2016.02.26 03:08:21 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Lovely name." she takes a sip. She nods "and tasty too"
    [ 2016.02.26 03:10:10 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote leans back in her chair "I hope the effort of taking in those people people wasn't more taxing than expected?"
    [ 2016.02.26 03:10:51 ] Zaichi > /emote had quietly stirred each with the syrup in rings through the millky cream...and eventually took a moment to sip her own >... No. Regrettably, we've handled much larger influxes of population..
    [ 2016.02.26 03:11:26 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods slowly "I.. confess I can't even imagine that."
    [ 2016.02.26 03:12:22 ] Zaichi > /emote nods > I understand...It is the nature of things sometimes.
    [ 2016.02.26 03:13:02 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "it was awful enough just seeing the 25,000 or so we had to handle. And I hear the Butcher plans to sacrifice a million next month" she pauses "a million!"
    [ 2016.02.26 03:15:00 ] Zaichi > /emote nods at that ... and frowns with a sigh > These things do happen, Lunarisse.
    [ 2016.02.26 03:16:39 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says softly "I refuse to accept that, but the damn authorities and Concord won't change the SCC markets which let any crazy with isk buy a million of them". She flushes, having used uncharacteristic language.
    [ 2016.02.26 03:17:56 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "We tried a petition to limit them, at least in the Empire, to only Holders constrained by the laws of God and Empire" She says. Obviously to her that would solve a lot of the problem.
    [ 2016.02.26 03:18:16 ] Zaichi > /emote took her drink and moved to a lazily situated couch and settled into it, casually gesturing to a seat across a small table on which she placed her drink. She set her feet up on the couch and simply stretched out...
    [ 2016.02.26 03:19:17 ] Zaichi > Sit with me, and relax...I can see you care..
    [ 2016.02.26 03:19:55 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote moves over to where indicated, and takes a seat. She is erect and not relaxed, with a slight twitch. She sighs.
    [ 2016.02.26 03:21:32 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "It's hard not to care. I can;t imagine how you can take so many in.. as you say you do.. and not get burned out"
    [ 2016.02.26 03:22:01 ] Zaichi > /emote watches Luna and slowly breathes in, and out... taking a quiet long moment to sip her tea, let the solitude of the lounge sink in to the moment before speaking > Can you try for me? Breathe in, ..... breathe out...
    [ 2016.02.26 03:22:20 ] Zaichi > *tea/drink
    [ 2016.02.26 03:22:47 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote looks at Zachi.
    [ 2016.02.26 03:23:48 ] Zaichi > I breathe. I try to accept....I try to help where i can.
    [ 2016.02.26 03:24:19 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods slightly, not sure how to respond.
    [ 2016.02.26 03:24:23 ] Zaichi > Which brings me to you... and the favor.
    [ 2016.02.26 03:24:46 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Oh". she twitches again, of course. Now she wants to be paid or some such.
    [ 2016.02.26 03:25:43 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "How can I help you.. Zaichi?" she says evenly.
    [ 2016.02.26 03:27:24 ] Zaichi > /emote looked to luna compassionately there was no .... malice in her tone, or seemingly intended as she spoke > You find it hard to imagine how i cope with it all, mmm? And you care about your... investments... i imagine..
    [ 2016.02.26 03:29:20 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Yes, I do care what happens to them." She raises her chin slightly.
    [ 2016.02.26 03:30:12 ] Zaichi > I offer you an opportunity to see how we care for them. How we heal them, to the best of our multitude of abilities..
    [ 2016.02.26 03:31:17 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote sips her drink., her mind running through her schedules and time tables. Shipments here, a recruiting interview there, dinner with the Holy Mother, services,. "of course. But I've been busy"
    [ 2016.02.26 03:32:11 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I'd love to visit sometime of course"
    [ 2016.02.26 03:32:16 ] Zaichi > I would consider you free of the boon to me, were you to accept my offer.
    [ 2016.02.26 03:32:36 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote tilts her head, a little confused. "Your offer?"
    [ 2016.02.26 03:32:37 ] Zaichi > Yet, understand that you need to know something of it...
    [ 2016.02.26 03:33:14 ] Zaichi > /emote nods > offer/request...
    [ 2016.02.26 03:33:40 ] Zaichi > We have a program that allows for the delicate involvement of capsuleers..
    [ 2016.02.26 03:33:56 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote gazes at Zaichi, entirely unsure where she is going with this.
    [ 2016.02.26 03:34:05 ] Zaichi > And others, who wish to review the facilities and programs we have..
    [ 2016.02.26 03:35:12 ] Zaichi > I would like for you to see how we help the people who come to us. To be with them, as one of them, - as far as they are concerned..
    [ 2016.02.26 03:36:42 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote's eyes widen slightly. "To... mix with them and pretend to be a slave?"
    [ 2016.02.26 03:36:59 ] Zaichi > I would offer you a clone contract.... and you would be able to live with, and as one of them discreetly...
    [ 2016.02.26 03:37:35 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Explain?"
    [ 2016.02.26 03:39:24 ] Zaichi > We have a guidance program for those who wish to visit our facilities...You would be delicately placed in environments where you could witness the good we do..without causing undue concerns on account of being a capsuleer..
    [ 2016.02.26 03:39:56 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I see." she pauses "And when it is over?"
    [ 2016.02.26 03:40:32 ] Zaichi > A week, unless you desired a longer stay..
    [ 2016.02.26 03:42:36 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote considers in her mind. This is interesting. But how do I know I won't be stuck in that clone if someone decides I need more... of a view. She gives a mental shrug, i guess I could find a way to kill myself and trigger my soft clone.
    [ 2016.02.26 03:43:04 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I truly never considered such a thing, although I've seen others borrow bodies." She looks at Zaichi
    [ 2016.02.26 03:43:12 ] Zaichi > You would have a clone, and your outward signs as a pilot would be medically concealed...
    [ 2016.02.26 03:43:17 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "This will be a clone and not some.. other person right?"
    [ 2016.02.26 03:43:40 ] Zaichi > It would not, be a clonejack.
    [ 2016.02.26 03:44:15 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods.
    [ 2016.02.26 03:44:21 ] Zaichi > A static clone, within which you could fit in to the environment, and understand it first hand.
    [ 2016.02.26 03:45:00 ] Zaichi > Rather than i share with you corporate marketing material and lovely pictures...alongside testimonials..
    [ 2016.02.26 03:45:30 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Yes.. i can see the value in that. I've always felt.. doing is better than.. reading aboutit"
    [ 2016.02.26 03:45:36 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says carefully.. thinking of all the things that will pile up in her absence "and if.. accept this unique offer, this will release me of your boon?"
    [ 2016.02.26 03:45:56 ] Zaichi > Yes.
    [ 2016.02.26 03:46:54 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote exhales, actually breathing in and out a bit. "When?"
    [ 2016.02.26 03:47:10 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "And.. where?"
    [ 2016.02.26 03:49:04 ] Zaichi > To begin as soon as you could be prepared.... in Tranquility, UW9B-F .
    [ 2016.02.26 03:49:22 ] Zaichi > The terrestrial on planet V.
    [ 2016.02.26 03:49:50 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote's eyes go blank. She searches for information about UW9B-F and planet V.
    [ 2016.02.26 03:50:30 ] Zaichi > /emote looks to luna with a smile > Planet (Temperate) - UW9B-F V my home in many ways of late.
    [ 2016.02.26 03:52:36 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Angel Cartel SOV" her eyes refocus. "How will safe passage be arranged?"
    [ 2016.02.26 03:54:12 ] Zaichi > Interbus.
    [ 2016.02.26 03:54:40 ] Zaichi > Numbers, ... has strong ties with the Interbus, as i imagine you are aware.
    [ 2016.02.26 03:54:41 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods. "This is... an intriguing proposal." She looks at Zaichi and says simply "I accept"
    [ 2016.02.26 03:56:50 ] Zaichi > /emote nods > I hope, you will forgive me for the time it will take from your schedule, your responsibilities within the empire and stress it may cause you as you are provided with much, much, information.
    [ 2016.02.26 03:57:54 ] Zaichi > You will have a guide, of sorts, ... information, you will be provided with when you take on your new clone.
    [ 2016.02.26 03:58:11 ] Zaichi > And adjust to everything.
    [ 2016.02.26 03:59:55 ] Zaichi > I hope, ... however that you may understand, the reasons i present it as a boon, and is in truth a repayment to one we once knew, and helped.
    [ 2016.02.26 04:00:11 ] Zaichi > Once you have returned..
    [ 2016.02.26 04:01:38 ] Zaichi > That, you are agreeable, means a lot to me, and another no longer with us. Whom, to be honest with you, i miss.
    [ 2016.02.26 04:02:45 ] Zaichi > /emote frowns and sips her drink slowly > She was a good person, Lunarisse.
    [ 2016.02.26 04:02:54 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods slightly, thinking. She sips her drink.
    [ 2016.02.26 04:03:17 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I am sorry to hear of your loss."
    [ 2016.02.26 04:03:30 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "And... i will try to make the most of this.. unique opportunity"
    [ 2016.02.26 04:03:48 ] Zaichi > /emote gazes into her drink with a sigh... > Good.
    [ 2016.02.26 04:05:26 ] Zaichi > Just, know that i'm doing this... drawing you in, - for her. As much as your wants. Which may be this drink speaking.. but.. I hope you'll have a better understanding of how we help people.
    [ 2016.02.26 04:06:37 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods. "That would be good. I do want to make sure the people I sent you are doing well and.. if this helps me, I'd like to do it."
    [ 2016.02.26 04:07:44 ] Zaichi > /emote sighs again and puts her drink down, taking a moment to stretch out before smiling > You give me hope...
    [ 2016.02.26 04:08:41 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I.. need to make some arrangements. Shall I meet you Saturday?"
    [ 2016.02.26 04:08:52 ] Zaichi > Sure.
    [ 2016.02.26 04:09:02 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "In UW9B-F?
    [ 2016.02.26 04:09:02 ] Zaichi > Here in Amarr is fine...
    [ 2016.02.26 04:09:08 ] Zaichi > Yes
    [ 2016.02.26 04:09:15 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Oh." She nods. "Amarr it is."
    [ 2016.02.26 04:09:16 ] Zaichi > Or in Curse.
    [ 2016.02.26 04:09:41 ] Zaichi > /emote chuckles.. I can meet you where ever you'd wish, we have such lovely ties to the interbus
    [ 2016.02.26 04:09:58 ] Zaichi > But Salvation City is in UW..
    [ 2016.02.26 04:11:05 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods. She thinks, she needs to back up her clone, so Amarr is best, then Zaichi can show me the way. "I'll meet you in Amarr and we can travel together"
    [ 2016.02.26 04:11:30 ] Zaichi > Of course, that was where i was going with things..
    [ 2016.02.26 04:13:06 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Wonderful." she finishes her drink.
    [ 2016.02.26 04:13:15 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I'll see you then, I guess?"
    [ 2016.02.26 04:14:09 ] Zaichi > /emote looked to Luna thoughtfully > ... It may initially, be something of an extreme shock.. The totality of it when you are there. For that i appologize. Were i to add anything further i'd ask that you just breathe with it all. Take it stride, rhyt...
    [ 2016.02.26 04:14:11 ] Zaichi > and patience.
    [ 2016.02.26 04:14:34 ] Zaichi > And yes. I'll see you then..
    [ 2016.02.26 04:14:57 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote rises, her mind mulling over that remark!, she extends her hand. "Have a good night."
    [ 2016.02.26 04:15:37 ] Zaichi > /emote takes it and squeezes with a platonic acute warmth...
    [ 2016.02.26 04:15:43 ] Zaichi > You too.
    [ 2016.02.26 04:15:53 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote exits.

    One week later...

    -------------------------------------------------------------
    Nourriture An open concept, well appointed restaurant within the heart of a station docked Machariel, for clients seeking dishes influenced by the multicultural demographics of Curse. In particular the Tranquility constellation. Alcohol is served in limited quantities and at house discretion purely in conjunction with full course meals. The house stocks ample tea reserves and various soft refreshments. Exceptionally prompt and direct transport to and from is provided by InterBus for all who make a dining reservation ahead of time. The management reserves the right of employing ventilation dispersed handwavium nanite powder to maintain a civil, safe and secure environment for all guests.

    [ 2016.03.06 15:38:48 ] Zaichi > -When luna's stay had reached it's conclusion, she would have been picked up by a discreet zaichi, one evening.
    [ 2016.03.06 15:40:42 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote is subdued after returning to her clone. She is freshly showered. She is dressed in sweats and her hair pulled in a pony tail,
    [ 2016.03.06 15:40:51 ] Zaichi > The UW clone, and Z would have taken a long terrestrial flight to a major city an boarded an elevator to an off overview civilian transport... which would have traveled to UW9B-F X - Guardian Angels Logistic Support...
    [ 2016.03.06 15:41:52 ] Zaichi > From there, the clone would have been sedated, before under sedation, its flesh coated ports connected to the clone bay jacks...
    [ 2016.03.06 15:42:09 ] Zaichi > from which she'd be painlessly transferred to the Amarr station..
    [ 2016.03.06 15:43:49 ] Zaichi > -In the amarr station, as typical, ... Luna would be serviced by empire staff.. as per any jump..
    [ 2016.03.06 15:44:11 ] Zaichi > Back in a fresh, new luna clone..
    [ 2016.03.06 15:47:38 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote enters. She is uncharacteristically subdued after returning to her clone. She is freshly showered. She is dressed in sweats and her hair pulled in a pony tail, She finds a place to sit and sighs to herself.
    [ 2016.03.06 15:48:59 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote eyes glaze as she reviews a slew of messages and channel logs.
    [ 2016.03.06 15:50:46 ] Zaichi > /emote wandered in with a relaxed manner, the private lounge was as ever a very cozy and warm environment.. wood, warm golden metal hue accents, ... there was a small bar with various alcohols available... as well as mundane teas & fruit drinks.
    [ 2016.03.06 15:52:07 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote refocuses. She looks up as Zaichi enters. Her face is expressionless.
    [ 2016.03.06 15:52:28 ] Zaichi > /emote was attired with very flowy soft casual attire, ever walking the line between conservative and yet... revealing. Or was it unabashed comfort?... in a collection of warm auburn, soft suede, and cottons..
    [ 2016.03.06 15:53:19 ] Zaichi > /emote smiled genially and looked to Luna with some general thoughtful concern >Hi.... How are you?
    [ 2016.03.06 15:54:43 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says quietly "I am fine, I suppose." she blinks as if reflexively trying to clear her mind.
    [ 2016.03.06 15:54:56 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I.. am not sure where her memories end and where mine begin".
    [ 2016.03.06 15:56:34 ] Zaichi > /emote made her way to the bar as well, and gradually fixed herself a cup of coffee... and looked to Luna > It is an adjustment..
    [ 2016.03.06 15:57:05 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote looks at Zaichi. "Is she dead?"
    [ 2016.03.06 15:59:16 ] Zaichi > /emote nods and remains quiet for a few moments before speaking> Yes... she passed.. back in november..
    [ 2016.03.06 16:00:07 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote exhales. "Well so much for trying to make things right by her."
    [ 2016.03.06 16:00:44 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote sounds a bit frustrated at that. She slumps into her seat.
    [ 2016.03.06 16:03:51 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Her.. Holder failed her. Completely."
    [ 2016.03.06 16:04:46 ] Zaichi > /emote looked to luna and the coffee maker.. in silent question with a gesture to another cup. before continuing> ... It was about sharing, i think. You already have... fullfilled her wish, as did i to her, in finding you. .... But yes. We, encounter
    [ 2016.03.06 16:05:21 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "What did she hope to have happen by sharing... her story with me?"
    [ 2016.03.06 16:05:33 ] Zaichi > Many who have had less than ideal imperial owners..
    [ 2016.03.06 16:06:03 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote listens quietly.
    [ 2016.03.06 16:06:55 ] Zaichi > I believe, there are some who ... wish to genuinely believe the holder system and the faith, improve the lives of those who are reclaimed..
    [ 2016.03.06 16:08:03 ] Zaichi > But the truth is i'm not sure how common that truly is.. in contrast with the scale of people who simply live, within an environment... where faith is simply something ... required for tax forms...
    [ 2016.03.06 16:08:08 ] Zaichi > and census taking..
    [ 2016.03.06 16:09:05 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote straightens her chin up "Then they are heretics as bad as the Sani" she says with a quiet edge of frustration.
    [ 2016.03.06 16:10:30 ] Zaichi > /emote nods > One could see it that way.. But they are not as rare as one might.. consider the blood raiders, funks, and butchers.. The Sani... the 5-10%... are the tiny % freaks..
    [ 2016.03.06 16:10:52 ] Zaichi > in contrast with the masses who... are so very casual about it..
    [ 2016.03.06 16:11:00 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I did see.. I remember.. her experiences with others in Salvation City."
    [ 2016.03.06 16:11:25 ] Zaichi > To the point That, those who genuinely believe, who genuinely want to help those they reclaim? ...
    [ 2016.03.06 16:11:34 ] Zaichi > Enlighten?...
    [ 2016.03.06 16:11:47 ] Zaichi > Are perhaps as rare as the sani...by percentage...
    [ 2016.03.06 16:11:55 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Clearly there are internal issues that.. have been ignored for too long." she says flatly.
    [ 2016.03.06 16:12:04 ] Zaichi > /emote nods..
    [ 2016.03.06 16:12:07 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote is keeping her emotions tightly in check.
    [ 2016.03.06 16:13:00 ] Zaichi > Were there anything to feel she wished to share... perhaps it was that notion? That perspective? if one was to try and understand..
    [ 2016.03.06 16:13:22 ] Zaichi > Not that one person can necessarily ever change the reality of the empire overnight..
    [ 2016.03.06 16:14:29 ] Zaichi > /emote frowns slightly > In fact.. it'd be bad for business and the economy in the empire and beyond.. But, - over time people adjust.. and adapt.
    [ 2016.03.06 16:16:41 ] Zaichi > You admirably, take the fight to the butcher, when even the matari do not.. and have for some time. You care.. And it shows.
    [ 2016.03.06 16:16:47 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says quietly, "the Amarr have never been the Caldari, concerned about units and isk. Those who put that over the work of God are as bad as Nauplius"
    [ 2016.03.06 16:17:47 ] Zaichi > They are, true.. yet not all are mad, and delusional like he..
    [ 2016.03.06 16:17:58 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "No and that makes it worse."
    [ 2016.03.06 16:18:30 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote frowns. "For a while I thought her life was like mine.. then her parents engaged in that foolishness."
    [ 2016.03.06 16:18:34 ] Zaichi > Some simply exist and have been shaped in a place, where casual ownership and treatment of people is acceptable..
    [ 2016.03.06 16:19:14 ] Zaichi > Which, works a bit of darkness on them over time as much as it does those they come to treat as ... not quite.. enlightened..or equal
    [ 2016.03.06 16:22:11 ] Zaichi > Are you amarr, or are you not?....The cliche question... even if one is not a slave..
    [ 2016.03.06 16:23:03 ] Zaichi > It's a product of a view point.. that extends to how the empire treats and deal with others..
    [ 2016.03.06 16:23:06 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says quietly "I see"
    [ 2016.03.06 16:23:33 ] Zaichi > including slaves..
    [ 2016.03.06 16:23:54 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Of course.. there were Amarr too among those at Salvation City.. for reasons." she exhales.
    [ 2016.03.06 16:24:59 ] Zaichi > /emote nods > Yes... we attempt to help all humans..
    [ 2016.03.06 16:25:18 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote looks at Zaichi "I won't forget her or what she.. tried to show me."
    [ 2016.03.06 16:25:34 ] Zaichi > It...
    [ 2016.03.06 16:25:47 ] Zaichi > I don't believe ... nor did i in choosing you... intend..
    [ 2016.03.06 16:26:23 ] Zaichi > that it be just another's guilt trip thrown i your face.. as an amarrian..
    [ 2016.03.06 16:26:43 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote tilts her head slightly.
    [ 2016.03.06 16:28:20 ] Zaichi > But more... an act of hope.. that perhaps a butterfly's wings.. like your own... might nudge things into a different place..
    [ 2016.03.06 16:29:11 ] Zaichi > You seem to have the will to face the butcher... and the open mindedness to see that all amarr ought be equal under your gods' eyes..
    [ 2016.03.06 16:30:45 ] Zaichi > Perhaps you might have some falling tree in the forrest's hope of influencing the future of amarr / human relations..
    [ 2016.03.06 16:30:52 ] Zaichi > /emote smiles even if you're not empress.
    [ 2016.03.06 16:31:08 ] Zaichi > /emote smiles > Even if you're not empress. You're a pilot..
    [ 2016.03.06 16:32:11 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says bleakly "Well.. we'll see."
    [ 2016.03.06 16:32:17 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote glances at Zaichi. "Unlike others on the IGS I've always felt doing the small things add up over time..." she says to herself "tis better to light a single candle than to curse the darkness."
    [ 2016.03.06 16:32:47 ] Zaichi > For, if you feel all amarr ought be equal under god's, eyes... why not all humans? mm?
    [ 2016.03.06 16:34:25 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote does not respond. After a moment she says "Do you feel your boon has been honored?"
    [ 2016.03.06 16:34:45 ] Zaichi > To you, and she. Yes. In full.
    [ 2016.03.06 16:35:20 ] Zaichi > /emote offers Luna an acutely achur bow at that..
    [ 2016.03.06 16:35:31 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods. "Alright then." she says quietly, looking increasingly tired as she stands.
    [ 2016.03.06 16:35:51 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Have a.... well.. a Blessed Day,"
    [ 2016.03.06 16:36:05 ] Zaichi > /emote nods > And you. Fly safe.
    [ 2016.03.06 16:36:14 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote departs.

    A little while later...

    ---------------------------------------------------------------
    A surprisingly comfortable space in the Emperor Family Station in the Amarr system.The walls are paneled with dark wood. Periodically there are cross-hatched sections that serve to store wine bottles horizontally. The temperature is cool. There are multiple tables and booths with sumptious velvet red cushions. Stained glass lanterns and lights providing soft lighting. Each table has a wine & beverage list with a range of wines, ales, liquors and non-alcoholic drinks such as tea. A simple menu is also on each table that indicates that complimentary bread and assorted cheeses and fruits are provided to those who order by the bottle. Along one wall is a suit of golden armor with ceremonial sword and a tabard for the theology counsel that is cut for a femine figure along with a Picture. A square parquet dance floor is in the center of the room. The proprietor Vincentus Azizora and attentive wait staff are all baseliners. The manager Charm Meson works for TIPS.A dinner menu is available. Besides, an elegant dinner, an array of standard bar foods from throughout the Empire are available at other times (but no fried critters).A small sign on the bar says "Proudly serving Lodovica's Vitae."A small model of a Silver Magnate hangs above the bar.

    [ 2016.03.06 20:02:13 ] Venthios Lestaran > /emote walks into the Grape and takes a seat at the bar
    [ 2016.03.06 20:06:04 ] Venthios Lestaran > coffee please, with cream and rum.
    [ 2016.03.06 20:49:04 ] Venthios Lestaran > /emote finishes his coffee and exits the grape
    [ 2016.03.06 23:27:31 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote enters. She is dressed casually, as she appears, and slips onto a bar stool.
    [ 2016.03.06 23:30:42 ] Vlad Cettes > /emote walks in and makes his way to the bar
    [ 2016.03.06 23:33:03 ] Vlad Cettes > /emote sees Luna and nods> Evening Ms. Daphiti
    [ 2016.03.06 23:37:21 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Hello Mr. Cettes" she looks at him. He seems oddly changed, but not.
    [ 2016.03.06 23:40:06 ] Vlad Cettes > Quiet night
    [ 2016.03.06 23:40:54 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote shrugs. She takes a glass of wine and sips it "I wouldn't know."
    [ 2016.03.06 23:41:03 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Anything interesting lately, Mr. Cetes?"
    [ 2016.03.06 23:41:28 ] Vlad Cettes > /emote shakes his head> Nothing we can discuss publicly anyway
    [ 2016.03.06 23:46:07 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > I see.
    [ 2016.03.06 23:46:14 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote frowns. "Do you need to talk in the backroom?"
    [ 2016.03.06 23:46:56 ] Vlad Cettes > Negative. It is nullsec business, but we cannot disclose it to the general public yet
    [ 2016.03.06 23:48:08 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods. "I see." Her frown fades. What does she care about null sec politics in the back of beyond?
    [ 2016.03.06 23:48:13 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote sips her wine.
    [ 2016.03.06 23:49:24 ] Vlad Cettes > Other business is going well, once we can procure a Rhea we might expand our tower empire
    [ 2016.03.06 23:55:21 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods politely.
    [ 2016.03.06 23:58:11 ] Hevaima Gesakaarin > /emote enters wearing a black suit jacket over a grey turtleneck shirt. He walks slowly towards the bar.
    [ 2016.03.06 23:59:12 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote gives Hevaima a sideways glance, then as she recognizes him, she looks directly and smiles. "Hello Mr. Gesakaarin"
    [ 2016.03.07 00:02:00 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "What brings you back to Amarr?"
    [ 2016.03.07 00:02:20 ] Vlad Cettes > /emote nods> Hello
    [ 2016.03.07 00:04:05 ] Hevaima Gesakaarin > /emote returns Luna's smile, "Ah, Lunarisse, would you believe me if I said the nostalgia of your company is my cause for return?"
    [ 2016.03.07 00:04:48 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I would be sure you are flattering me." Her eyes sparkle slightly, however.
    [ 2016.03.07 00:05:55 ] Hevaima Gesakaarin > "Then I would be certain you are far too modest my dear," He chuckles.
    [ 2016.03.07 00:07:05 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Well have a seat." she says "Do you know Mr. Cetes?"
    [ 2016.03.07 00:09:02 ] Hevaima Gesakaarin > /emote takes the indicated seat and shakes his head no, "I'm afraid not."
    [ 2016.03.07 00:09:56 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says lightly "he works with Lady Lianne"
    [ 2016.03.07 00:10:50 ] Hevaima Gesakaarin > /emote nods, "Then I am sure it must be enjoyable work."
    [ 2016.03.07 00:11:41 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote chuckles "I am not sure he is capable of enjoyment" She turns and focuses on Hevaima "I wasn't sure you'd visit Amarr again after your sister and her corporation went neutral" she says evenly.
    [ 2016.03.07 00:13:07 ] Vlad Cettes > /emote turns to Hevaima> We have been seconded to Shalee Lianne at the behest of Alliance Executor Garst Tyrell
    [ 2016.03.07 00:14:54 ] Hevaima Gesakaarin > /emote nods and smiles at Vlad's words, "I am sure it must be quite the honour to do so," He focuses on Luna, "Well, I am not my sister. Obviously."
    [ 2016.03.07 00:15:41 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods slightly. She wasn't sure if Black Parable wasn't some kind of front for Pyre. She still isn't. Still she doesn't press. "Can I get I you some wine or something to drink?"
    [ 2016.03.07 00:18:08 ] Hevaima Gesakaarin > "A water should be fine, for now." He reclines back in his seat, "I have to say, unfortunate that you decided to give up on dancing."
    [ 2016.03.07 00:18:41 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote smirks as she sips her wine. "Who ever told you that?"
    [ 2016.03.07 00:24:56 ] Hevaima Gesakaarin > "A matual acquaintance." He smiles, "I always thought you rather lithe and adept at step, a misfortune I will not be able to see my assertions confirmed."
    [ 2016.03.07 00:26:35 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says lightly "That would be most unfortunate."
    [ 2016.03.07 00:27:39 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I am certain were that the case, I'd find that you were adept at avoiding my feet." She smirks.
    [ 2016.03.07 00:28:25 ] Vlad Cettes > /emote pays his bill and bids Luna & Hevaima good evening as he leaves
    [ 2016.03.07 00:30:01 ] Hevaima Gesakaarin > "I would never dream you to be so clumsy that I would have to avoid you, Lunarisse."
    [ 2016.03.07 00:30:42 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote glances at Vincentus Azizora who is polishing the bar. "So are the Sunday musicians going to be here tonight?" She adds lightly "It'd be a shame to leave all these..hypotheticals and suppositions in the air."
    [ 2016.03.07 00:36:06 ] Vincentus Azizora > /emote grunts noncommittally "the band will be here yes, Mrs. Daphiti"
    [ 2016.03.07 00:36:50 ] Hevaima Gesakaarin > /emote tilts his head to the side with a smirk, "Oh, looking forward to watch others tonight, hmm?"
    [ 2016.03.07 00:37:16 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote tilts her head sidewise at Hevaima, a retort on her tongue. Then She frowns "Although I am not.. in dancing attire at all!"
    [ 2016.03.07 00:40:38 ] Hevaima Gesakaarin > /emote chuckles, "Ah, and here I was hoping to hold you close for a set. Fear not, it's not the first time my hopes have been dashed by a charming woman."
    [ 2016.03.07 00:44:56 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote pouts "I'd hate to risk entangling you with my belts and loops.. in this outfit. it'd be most.. awkward". She smiles brightly "I just have your best interests at heart."
    [ 2016.03.07 00:45:26 ] Vincentus Azizora > /emote vanishes in the back and re-appears with a quartet of musicians who set up at the edge of the parquet dance floor.
    [ 2016.03.07 00:47:07 ] Vincentus Azizora > /emote notes that they begin warming up ((https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nl8V-1ahDbM ))
    [ 2016.03.07 00:48:09 ] Hevaima Gesakaarin > "Then I can assure you, I will be careful in how I will hold you close, Lunarisse."
    [ 2016.03.07 00:57:51 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote turns to listens to the musicians. She winces slightly as they hit a few discordance notes warming up.
    [ 2016.03.07 01:01:04 ] Vincentus Azizora > /emote notes that as they finish warming up, the band moves to playing string music. Specifically, waltzes. (( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ClCD56V3hBk ))
    [ 2016.03.07 01:07:02 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote glances as some of the patrons take to the floor. "Well now that they are playing for real they sound quite nice."
    [ 2016.03.07 01:12:46 ] Hevaima Gesakaarin > /emote nods, "I agree. Would you like to join them?"
    [ 2016.03.07 01:15:06 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Sure" she says simply and rises.
    [ 2016.03.07 01:17:03 ] Vincentus Azizora > /emote leans against the bar, watching Luna's slender form. He rubs a hand on his paunch and sighs.
    [ 2016.03.07 01:18:53 ] Hevaima Gesakaarin > /emote stands and offers Luna his hand with a smile, "Would the lovely lady do me the pleasure of a dance?"
    [ 2016.03.07 01:22:20 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says politely "I'd be delighted," she accepts the offered hand "and my pardon if I tie you up in knots"
    [ 2016.03.07 01:24:31 ] Hevaima Gesakaarin > /emote leads Lunarisse to the parquet floor with a chuckle, "Some entanglements one should not apologize for."
    [ 2016.03.07 01:27:14 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote follows and looks at Hevaima "I think your sister doesn't lnow what a Closed Waltz is.. " she giggles. "So i think she misinterpreted my message to you."
    [ 2016.03.07 01:32:06 ] Hevaima Gesakaarin > "She never was one for dancing," He turns to face Luna on the dance floor, raising his right hand and lowering his left in invitation of the frame.
    [ 2016.03.07 01:34:05 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote follows suit as appropriate, obviously not out of practice, acceping his left hand with her right, and vice versa. "Silly goose thought I meant I gave up dancing."
    [ 2016.03.07 01:39:41 ] Hevaima Gesakaarin > /emote chuckles, "Now that would be a tragedy," He looks down at Lunarisse's right hand, "How closed shall this be?"
    [ 2016.03.07 01:40:05 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote follows Hevaima counting to herself. hopefully in a forward series of steps or she's really confused!
    [ 2016.03.07 01:41:25 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "How closed does it need to be?" She pauses and giggles "Not so close your belt buckle catches my tool loops."
    [ 2016.03.07 01:43:16 ] Vincentus Azizora > /emote straightens. His dancing days are beyond him. He looks to see if anyone needs a drink or food.
    [ 2016.03.07 01:43:29 ] Hevaima Gesakaarin > /emote laughs and nods as he leads Luna in a simple box step around the edge of the dance floor, rising and falling to the meter, "Well, we can't have that. I have your dignity to consider after all."
    [ 2016.03.07 01:44:39 ] Vincentus Azizora > /emote notes the band is continuing to play ((https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ClCD56V3hBk))
    [ 2016.03.07 01:46:52 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote turns and follows as Hevaima moves.
    [ 2016.03.07 01:52:41 ] Hevaima Gesakaarin > /emote surreptitiously places his right hand on the small of Luna's back during a change of step and direction to draw her closer towards himself and smiles, "Oh, I think you were being quite modest before, you know?"
    [ 2016.03.07 01:56:08 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote flushes "I get by."
    [ 2016.03.07 01:56:45 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says a little breathlessly "You dance like a teacher.. or a Lord, if the Caldari had lords."
    [ 2016.03.07 02:02:59 ] Hevaima Gesakaarin > /emote laughs softly as he continues to lead Lunarisse around with a four-step, "Oh, it's skill only learned because I happen to enjoy holding one such as yourself in my arms."
    [ 2016.03.07 02:04:11 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote giggles What did some say about Deteis and flattery. Oh well. She needs some of that tonight. She follows.
    [ 2016.03.07 02:08:14 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "So you have practice. I am sure I am only one of many then"
    [ 2016.03.07 02:10:21 ] Hevaima Gesakaarin > /emote turns on a third meter to shift into a promenade on the fourth before ignoring the other dancers and leading Lunarisse on a quick chasse on his right hand, "The only one tonight."
    [ 2016.03.07 02:11:12 ] Hevaima Gesakaarin > /emote draws Lunarisse close to him again with his left hand on her back now away from the other dancers, "Besides, would you want to dance with someone with so little experience where it counts?"
    [ 2016.03.07 02:14:59 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says lightly "of course not, and my toes certainly not"
    [ 2016.03.07 02:17:10 ] Hevaima Gesakaarin > /emote looks down at Lunarisse with a wry smile, "Exactly, there's always more enjoyment to be found with those more experienced. In dancing or in life."
    [ 2016.03.07 02:23:17 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote giggles. She does not respond, trying to stay on track. She almost seems a little out of touch with her body.
    [ 2016.03.07 02:28:52 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote stumbles slightly, then recovers. She flushes.
    [ 2016.03.07 02:28:53 ] Hevaima Gesakaarin > /emote stops as the music stops with a grin, "Well, look at that. It seems you were modest after all Lunarisse. Not a broken toe in sight."
    [ 2016.03.07 02:29:25 ] Hevaima Gesakaarin > /emote laughs, "Well, almost."
    [ 2016.03.07 02:30:35 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote turns a bright shade of red. She bites her lip and tries to get back in time.
    [ 2016.03.07 02:35:52 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote pauses and shakes herself. Her mental reflexes are slow too.
    [ 2016.03.07 02:36:08 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Sorry.... Hevaima. I think my mind got ahead of my feet."
    [ 2016.03.07 02:36:41 ] T'hyrin Qirna > /emote steps into the establishment. She tostles her hair a bit and walks to the bar.
    [ 2016.03.07 02:37:05 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote releases his hands, belatedly, standing there, flushed and embarassed.
    [ 2016.03.07 02:37:39 ] T'hyrin Qirna > /emote orders a whiskey and eyes the couple curiously.
    [ 2016.03.07 02:39:15 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Shall we sit down?" She looks a little unsteady.
    [ 2016.03.07 02:41:08 ] Vincentus Azizora > /emote asks * T'hyrin Qirna "Sarum or Kador whiskey, Ensign?"
    [ 2016.03.07 02:41:48 ] Hevaima Gesakaarin > /emote smiles, "Sure, why not. It seems you need some air my dear."
    [ 2016.03.07 02:42:07 ] T'hyrin Qirna > /emote turns to Vintentus. "Sarum is my preferred."
    [ 2016.03.07 02:42:30 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote returns to the bar, looking pensive. She says politely "hello Ensign Qirna"
    [ 2016.03.07 02:42:45 ] T'hyrin Qirna > /emote gives a wry smile and a small wave to Lunarisse
    [ 2016.03.07 02:43:07 ] Vincentus Azizora > "Sarum it is. I have a 30 year old blend" He goes and pours, then returns.
    [ 2016.03.07 02:43:17 ] T'hyrin Qirna > "How are you this evening, Ms. Aspenstar?"
    [ 2016.03.07 02:43:26 ] T'hyrin Qirna > /emote nods a thank you, takes a sip
    [ 2016.03.07 02:44:22 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote looks at Hevaima, then back at 'Rin. She flushes.
    [ 2016.03.07 02:44:48 ] T'hyrin Qirna > /emote smiles, a cute wrinkle to her nose.
    [ 2016.03.07 02:45:01 ] T'hyrin Qirna > "Must be going well..."
    [ 2016.03.07 02:45:44 ] Hevaima Gesakaarin > /emote chooses to simply adopt a polite posture with his hands behind his back as he lets the ladies speak.
    [ 2016.03.07 02:47:11 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Ensign, this is Hevaima Gesakaarin . he is a Caldari businessman who does a lot of work in the Empire
    [ 2016.03.07 02:47:25 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Mr. Gesakaarin, Ensign T'hyrin Qirna of PIE
    [ 2016.03.07 02:47:52 ] T'hyrin Qirna > "A pleasure to meet you."
    [ 2016.03.07 02:48:28 ] Hevaima Gesakaarin > /emote smiles, "Well met, Ensign Qirna. And the pleasure is mutual."
    [ 2016.03.07 02:48:58 ] T'hyrin Qirna > /emote smiles, a little bashfully, and nods.
    [ 2016.03.07 02:49:46 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says lightly "He is of course, a paragon of flattery". Her flush fading, she eyes Hevaima with a sparkle.
    [ 2016.03.07 02:50:53 ] Vincentus Azizora > /emote looks at Hevaima Gesakaarin and Lunarisse Aspenstar "CanI get you something?"
    [ 2016.03.07 02:50:58 ] T'hyrin Qirna > /emote smiles at Lunarisse, noticing the chemistry. "Ah..."
    [ 2016.03.07 02:51:57 ] T'hyrin Qirna > /emote takes another sip of her Sarum whiskey.
    [ 2016.03.07 02:52:42 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says "Water is fine." Not trusting herself or her body right now.
    [ 2016.03.07 02:53:34 ] Hevaima Gesakaarin > /emote chuckles, "Flattery? I prefer honesty."
    [ 2016.03.07 02:54:41 ] T'hyrin Qirna > /emote smiles. "I am sure every compliment Mr. Gesakaarin has given has been honesty-- Lunarisse is a lovely lady!"
    [ 2016.03.07 02:55:44 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote's pink returns. "Er.. thank you, Ensign." She thinks 'Rin is not helping! "So.. how is PIE's newer finest doing in the warzone these days" She looks at 'Rin benignly.
    [ 2016.03.07 02:58:13 ] T'hyrin Qirna > /emote chuckles a little at Lunarisse's reaction (she couldn't help feeling a little mischievous). She turns to Luna. "Well.... We had a successful fleet this afternoon. Valeria Aelahl led the charge."
    [ 2016.03.07 02:59:37 ] Vincentus Azizora > /emote returns with a water for Lunarisse. He listens with interest. He murmers "When can their glory fade? O the wild charge they made!" obviously remembering something.
    [ 2016.03.07 02:59:56 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Wonderful." She smiles.
    [ 2016.03.07 02:59:58 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > How is Maria?
    [ 2016.03.07 03:00:10 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > She tried to visit me in Nahyeen last week.. but.. er... I was away.
    [ 2016.03.07 03:00:59 ] T'hyrin Qirna > /emote responds to Vincentus, almost under her breath, "All the world wondered..."
    [ 2016.03.07 03:01:23 ] Vincentus Azizora > /emote smiles at 'Rin. He resumes polishing the bar.
    [ 2016.03.07 03:01:40 ] T'hyrin Qirna > "Maria is doing well. As fiesty as ever. A brave spirit we all admire."
    [ 2016.03.07 03:02:19 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Good. I was concerning the Butcher's rantings got her down. I saw Lady Admiral Newelle dressed him down but good."
    [ 2016.03.07 03:02:37 ] T'hyrin Qirna > "Indeed."
    [ 2016.03.07 03:02:42 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I really don't give a Damn what he says."
    [ 2016.03.07 03:03:04 ] T'hyrin Qirna > /emote laughs and takes another sip.
    [ 2016.03.07 03:03:11 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote looks at Hevaima "If only there was a way to get rid of him permanently." She sighs and sips her water.
    [ 2016.03.07 03:04:51 ] Vincentus Azizora > /emote mutters, hearing the comment, "Unfortunately the MIO can't just remove a capsuleer. Damn Concord."
    [ 2016.03.07 03:05:08 ] T'hyrin Qirna > /emote 's brow furrows.
    [ 2016.03.07 03:05:58 ] T'hyrin Qirna > "Surely severe abuses can be punishable by removal... But... I suppose not."
    [ 2016.03.07 03:07:20 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Problem is Sergeant" she says addressing Vincentus "He can just suicide and re-clone. We're bloody well entities to ourselves in space."
    [ 2016.03.07 03:08:11 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote turns back to 'Rin and Hevaima. "I refuse to discuss him tonight. I was in a good mood."
    [ 2016.03.07 03:08:20 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote smiles at Hevaima Gesakaarin .
    [ 2016.03.07 03:09:06 ] Vincentus Azizora > /emote grunts "Yes, Ma'am." He returns to polishing the bar.
    [ 2016.03.07 03:09:22 ] T'hyrin Qirna > /emote smirks. "Mr. Gesakaarin seems a nice man, Ms. Aspenstar."
    [ 2016.03.07 03:10:31 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Oh. thoroughly transparent and honest as the day is long". Her eyes flickering over him, adds lightly "I know he would never engage in false flattery."
    [ 2016.03.07 03:11:44 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote blinks, lookling a little unsteady "No, Milord" she says "I was not insulting you." She blinks again, looking a little disoriented and looks at her hands.
    [ 2016.03.07 03:12:02 ] Hevaima Gesakaarin > /emote chuckles, "Never with you Lunarisse, you are an easy woman to compliment as well as to admire," He leans in closer to her, "But I am afraid I must go. Business calls unfortuantely."
    [ 2016.03.07 03:12:06 ] T'hyrin Qirna > /emote nods, takes another sip. "Of course, I don't know him well... But he seems to freely share his honest opinions. A trait not many have."
    [ 2016.03.07 03:12:15 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Er...Mr. Gesakaarin, I think.. I overexerted myself. Can you walk me to my ship on your way out?"
    [ 2016.03.07 03:13:18 ] Hevaima Gesakaarin > /emote nods, "Certainly." He offers Luna his arm before smiling at Ms. Qirna, "Perhaps I will have the pleasure of speaking with you another time?"
    [ 2016.03.07 03:13:40 ] Vincentus Azizora > /emote notes that the band is continuing to play, about 9 minutes left in this set (( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ClCD56V3hBk ))
    [ 2016.03.07 03:13:43 ] T'hyrin Qirna > /emote nods. "Of course."
    [ 2016.03.07 03:14:19 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says "Good night Ensign." She accepts Hev's arm, looking a little subdued and pale.
    [ 2016.03.07 03:15:12 ] Hevaima Gesakaarin > /emote, "Be well Ensign Qirna." He says with a smile before leaning into Luna to whisper something as he leads her to the exit.
    [ 2016.03.07 03:15:47 ] T'hyrin Qirna > /emote smiles, pleased for Lunarisse.
    [ 2016.03.07 03:16:18 ] Hametta Fortune > /emote steps in, wearing a casual set of overals, some oil and grease still dotted on her skin and under her nails, she quickly finds a quiet table and sits down, clutching spider quiet;y
    [ 2016.03.07 03:17:57 ] T'hyrin Qirna > /emote eyes the recent addition to the Grape. She, a little shyly, decides to greet her.
    [ 2016.03.07 03:18:16 ] T'hyrin Qirna > "Good evening."
    [ 2016.03.07 03:18:54 ] Hametta Fortune > /emote she smiles the bot looking but her gaze staying on the table, the bot bows
    [ 2016.03.07 03:19:26 ] Hevaima Gesakaarin > /emote leaves with Lunarisse on her arm.

    Location: SFRIM Offices. Bar. Nahyeen VII, Zoar & Sons Factory

    Setting: 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 Lucas. 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. 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. Lunarisse's shelf has 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 secure richly coloured, dark wood box. A shelf labeled "Alizabeth" has several boxes of teas.There are a few other shelves that hold overflow and shared drinks for all. A well stocked refrigerator is behind the bar and equipmebnt to brew teas and coffees are behind the bar.

    On the walls are starscapes with Society members, painted by Lord Anderson.

    Against one wall is a majestic golden Tash-Murkon Grandmother Clock, secured so it does not tip.

    There is Sarum Shepard named " Quark"

    Exits: Gottin's Lamp - Kitchen, Gottin's Lamp - Sleeping Area, Gottin's Lamp - Library, and Gottin's Lamp

    [ 2016.03.09 02:32:35 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote is already seated in the private sections of the officers. Thal would be shown here after he arrives in the outside lobby by a staff member who departs, only members of the Society and guests being allowed here.
    [ 2016.03.09 02:32:56 ] Thal Vadam > /emote arrives, dressed in black armor and a red cape, his sword and pistol at his side
    [ 2016.03.09 02:32:57 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote is dressed.. very casually for her. She also looks a few years younger. She is quietly reading a book.
    [ 2016.03.09 02:33:35 ] Thal Vadam > /emote steps into her office "Salve my Lady"
    [ 2016.03.09 02:33:57 ] Thal Vadam > /emote 's voice is distorted by his helmet
    [ 2016.03.09 02:34:31 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says "Please, take that Helmet off. This is our living space and bar." she rises with a smile, flipping her pony tail back.
    [ 2016.03.09 02:37:06 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Can I get you something to drink?"
    [ 2016.03.09 02:38:42 ] Thal Vadam > /emote reaches up and pulls the helmet off, setting it on her desk "Holder Grey"
    [ 2016.03.09 02:42:20 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote smiles seeing Thal's handsome, rugged face. She makes her way behind the bar and begins to brew some tea. She pours herself a glass of wine.
    [ 2016.03.09 02:43:55 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "How.. is your student training going, Thal?" she asks... informal for once.
    [ 2016.03.09 02:44:39 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Cait Nathair right?
    [ 2016.03.09 02:45:08 ] Thal Vadam > /emote notices that "She's...in a complex situation Luna. But her training is fantastic"
    [ 2016.03.09 02:45:55 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods.
    [ 2016.03.09 02:46:14 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote returns with a cup of tea and delivers it to Thal. "Please Sit down and make yourself comfortable."
    [ 2016.03.09 02:47:47 ] Thal Vadam > /emote takes the tea and crosses his legs "How can I help you my Lady?"
    [ 2016.03.09 02:48:32 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote sits opposite Thal on the same couch. She looks at Thal "For some of my membership, I assign spiritual exercises."
    [ 2016.03.09 02:49:22 ] Thal Vadam > /emote nods slowly
    [ 2016.03.09 02:49:58 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I have... one member who I think.. is getting very angry at someone. And I want to see if we can channel her anger into something constructive, rather than destructive... like.. well..." she trails off not quite sure how much she wants to say yet.
    [ 2016.03.09 02:50:08 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Martial exercises can focus the mind yes?"
    [ 2016.03.09 02:50:35 ] Thal Vadam > "...It depends"
    [ 2016.03.09 02:50:47 ] Thal Vadam > "Mostly, yes"
    [ 2016.03.09 02:51:17 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "And can help.. relieve stress and tension?"
    [ 2016.03.09 02:51:26 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote sips her wine.
    [ 2016.03.09 02:51:27 ] Thal Vadam > /emote nods
    [ 2016.03.09 02:52:56 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I'd rather.. see that taken out in a sparring match.. then .. well.. devolving into a child of Naught again"
    [ 2016.03.09 02:53:03 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Mind you.. she has to agree.'
    [ 2016.03.09 02:53:09 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "But.. would you be willing to train her?"
    [ 2016.03.09 02:53:37 ] Thal Vadam > /emote nods slowly "I wouldn't mind at all"
    [ 2016.03.09 02:54:10 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote quirks a smile "And.. your 'Brother' probably wouldn't mind either."
    [ 2016.03.09 02:54:40 ] Thal Vadam > /emote blinks "...Aria?"
    [ 2016.03.09 02:54:48 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods slowly.
    [ 2016.03.09 02:55:14 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote flashes a bright smile. "I know she thinks are .. a rather unique figure already"
    [ 2016.03.09 02:55:40 ] Thal Vadam > "Well...Let me know the details"
    [ 2016.03.09 02:56:47 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Well let me talk to her first and I'll let you know"
    [ 2016.03.09 02:56:57 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote frowns. "There's another issue as well"
    [ 2016.03.09 02:57:08 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "sort of related.. but not"
    [ 2016.03.09 02:57:12 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote sips her wine.
    [ 2016.03.09 02:58:01 ] Thal Vadam > /emote nods "Go on"
    [ 2016.03.09 02:58:54 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "The Butcher has set up another tower" she says without preamble."
    [ 2016.03.09 02:59:06 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "This time he is doing medical experiments"
    [ 2016.03.09 02:59:47 ] Thal Vadam > "Yes...my answer is yes"
    [ 2016.03.09 03:00:07 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Good."
    [ 2016.03.09 03:00:22 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I'll let you know when Commander Arline and Captain Onzo set a date and time"
    [ 2016.03.09 03:00:36 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "PIE, SFRIM, Offworld, and CVA are planning an op"
    [ 2016.03.09 03:00:37 ] Thal Vadam > "When will I be inserted?"
    [ 2016.03.09 03:00:45 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Once the shields are reduced
    [ 2016.03.09 03:00:45 ] Thal Vadam > /emote nods
    [ 2016.03.09 03:02:20 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote smiles and leans back. Quark pads in quietly.
    [ 2016.03.09 03:02:54 ] Thal Vadam > "Anything else I can do for you?"
    [ 2016.03.09 03:03:28 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote sees Quark, her eyes glaze.
    [ 2016.03.09 03:04:15 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote shakes her head as if disoriented. After a moment, she sees Thal, in part uniform, helmet by his side. She pales.
    [ 2016.03.09 03:04:42 ] Thal Vadam > "Luna...?"
    [ 2016.03.09 03:04:53 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote as Quark comes over to sniff her she squeals and stands on her side of the couch. Startled. Quark looks up and whines, confused.
    [ 2016.03.09 03:05:35 ] Thal Vadam > /emote stands "Luna...What the...?"
    [ 2016.03.09 03:06:14 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I.. didn't do anything wrong! My parents didn't do anything wrong!" She says to the soldier. She looks around wildly.
    [ 2016.03.09 03:07:30 ] Thal Vadam > /emote blinks "...What?" He offers a hand to Luna
    [ 2016.03.09 03:08:08 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote stands, looking tearful. "Cuffing me now?"
    [ 2016.03.09 03:09:50 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote raises her chin. "Fine. I won't bring any more shame on my family."
    [ 2016.03.09 03:10:03 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote holds her shaking hands out.
    [ 2016.03.09 03:11:24 ] Thal Vadam > /emote gently takes her hand "I'm not taking you...I'm not cuffing you..."
    [ 2016.03.09 03:12:13 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote blinks as Thal takes her hand. She freezes, her eyes glaze, almost like a seizure.
    [ 2016.03.09 03:13:10 ] Thal Vadam > /emote gently takes her shoulder "I'm your friend Luna..."
    [ 2016.03.09 03:14:32 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote 's eyes refocus. She sees Thal close, his hand on her shoulder and other on her other hand. She flushes suddenly, a bright shade of red, and steps back. "Thal!"
    [ 2016.03.09 03:14:55 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote was on the edge of the couch and begins to stumble.
    [ 2016.03.09 03:15:21 ] Thal Vadam > "What in the name of the Emperors is wrong with you?"
    [ 2016.03.09 03:15:45 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote topples off with a squeal, Quark breaking her fall with a woof.
    [ 2016.03.09 03:16:13 ] Thal Vadam > /emote helps her up
    [ 2016.03.09 03:16:30 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote looks up at Thal, "Er.. I think the wine packed a punch" she says hastily.
    [ 2016.03.09 03:18:28 ] Thal Vadam > "That wasn't an bit of off drink...Your eyes glazed over and you started panic, saying I had come to arrest you"
    [ 2016.03.09 03:19:02 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote continues to look quite flushed. "I.. " She visibly settles herself. She gives a forced smile "I don't remember. I must have imbibed too much. think I need to lay down and let my body work this off.".
    [ 2016.03.09 03:20:09 ] Thal Vadam > /emote frowns "...contact me" He takes his helmet and slips it on
    [ 2016.03.09 03:20:49 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I will, Thal" she says quietly, looking disconcerted. "I surely will". She vanishes into the sleeping quarters. A staff member will escort Thal out.
    [ 2016.03.09 03:22:14 ] Thal Vadam > /emote leaves, wondering WTF just happened
    [ 2016.03.09 03:35:14 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote returns after a while. She looks pale and looks at herself in the mirror. After a moment she continues to the members' private rooms to her sanctum.

    Cafe Marlinea - Mehatoor - 24th IC Station

    The Cafe is on the main boulevard of the capsuleer community district in the 24th Imperial Crusade station in the Mehatoor system. The front of the cafe is furnished in a toned down Gallentean fashion. The small pavement stones have been implanted in front of the cafe with holodisplays to give the appearance of an outside countryside cafe.The scents from the cafe linger on the outside, fresh coffee mixed with Gallentean and Amarrian pastries. The establishment mixes the finer points of Gallente and Amarr culture immaculately together. There are four tables in front of the cafe, set with dayshades and two chairs each.Inside of the cafe is a similar mix of gallente and amarr culture and architecture. The inside houses a one corner set with two leather couches and a table between them. the sales counter is in the middle of the cafe. One can peek over the counter through the small window to the kitchen and see the bakers busy at work. There are five tables set with four seats each in the main area and on the sides two smaller seated tables.A constant flow of customers creates a lively atmosphere. The music on the background is mainly Gallente swing style music.

    [ 2016.03.11 03:43:54 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote enters. She is wearing a casual outfit, one might wear while working on the mechanical guts of a ship.
    [ 2016.03.11 03:44:02 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote takes a seat and orders a coffee and a croissant
    [ 2016.03.11 03:44:08 ] Thal Vadam > /emote steps into the cafe, dressed in his black armor and red cape, holding a few datapads
    [ 2016.03.11 03:44:29 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote waves her from her seat.
    [ 2016.03.11 03:44:59 ] Thal Vadam > /emote steps over to Luna and bows "My Lady"
    [ 2016.03.11 03:47:16 ] Rhoxy Runekin > /emote arrives a little late as always, wearing light body armor, obviously a size or two too large for her. She greets Luna and Thal with an extended bow, "Forgive me, I got lost."
    [ 2016.03.11 03:47:44 ] Thal Vadam > /emote nods "Ms Runekin"
    [ 2016.03.11 03:48:16 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "No worries." She smiles and lays a large datapad down.
    [ 2016.03.11 03:48:37 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Do you two know each other?"
    [ 2016.03.11 03:49:47 ] Thal Vadam > "Oh...I think I spoke to Ms Runekin once or twice before"
    [ 2016.03.11 03:50:06 ] Rhoxy Runekin > /emote puts a hand to her lips, thinking. "I've seen this templar before... Were you at that promotion for the Balle Mindclash tournament?"
    [ 2016.03.11 03:51:15 ] Thal Vadam > /emote frowns a little under his helmet "No...Though I've played a game or two"
    [ 2016.03.11 03:51:53 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > 'Interesting" she glances at the pair "Sit down please?"
    [ 2016.03.11 03:52:05 ] Rhoxy Runekin > /emote sits as instructed, still thinking.
    [ 2016.03.11 03:52:07 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "And Templar, there's no need to be armored up, this is a social chat."
    [ 2016.03.11 03:52:13 ] Thal Vadam > /emote takes a seat
    [ 2016.03.11 03:52:42 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote feels oddly uncomfortable at the sight of an armored templar, but doesn't know why. She dismisses the feeling.
    [ 2016.03.11 03:52:55 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Templar Vadamknows why he is here, but you do not" she smiles at Rhoxy
    [ 2016.03.11 03:53:59 ] Rhoxy Runekin > /emote looks around, "I thought you wanted to have brunch, Directrix."
    [ 2016.03.11 03:54:40 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I have a project I think you can help with."
    [ 2016.03.11 03:54:58 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Let me show you both the specs. Templar, you've seen this." She moves the datapad over.
    [ 2016.03.11 03:55:04 ] Thal Vadam > /emote pulls off his helmet and sets it on the table (( http://fringe.wikia.com/Henry_Ian_Cusick ))
    [ 2016.03.11 03:55:16 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote relaxes slightly, without even realizing it.
    [ 2016.03.11 03:56:16 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote swipes her hand and the specs appear.
    [ 2016.03.11 03:57:11 ] Rhoxy Runekin > /emote pours over the schematics, a slight smile coming to her face.
    [ 2016.03.11 03:57:17 ] Thal Vadam > "I can fashion the blade tomorrow Luna, I've got a design down"
    [ 2016.03.11 03:57:32 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Ms. Jenneth wants the knife for two reasons. One.. to train with the Templar, and two.. to protect me."
    [ 2016.03.11 03:57:51 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "She is in the process of becoming my Retainer.. think.. trusted Girl Friday"
    [ 2016.03.11 03:58:25 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods aT Thal "Wonderful"
    [ 2016.03.11 04:00:11 ] Rhoxy Runekin > "these are some heavy duty systems. I'm not sure we can acquire all these components at your local market hub.. maybe the shady end of dodixie."
    [ 2016.03.11 04:01:08 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods slightly "Do what you can.. within the limits of the law. Even if.. the very edge"
    [ 2016.03.11 04:01:53 ] Rhoxy Runekin > /emote flashes Luna a mischevious grin as if to ask permission to go beyond that the smallest bit.
    [ 2016.03.11 04:02:15 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote simply shrugs. She has plausible deniability. She need not say anything more.
    [ 2016.03.11 04:02:50 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Once the Templar is done, I'll ask him to send the blade to you, Ms, Runekin,"
    [ 2016.03.11 04:02:59 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I'd like your end.. done by next weekend if possible?"
    [ 2016.03.11 04:03:24 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > 'March.. 19th or so. There is an event I will want Ms. Jenneth to come with me on"
    [ 2016.03.11 04:04:04 ] Thal Vadam > /emote nods
    [ 2016.03.11 04:04:25 ] Rhoxy Runekin > /emote nods, reaching to send herself a copy of the schematics. "that's.. doable. even without luck.... i think."
    [ 2016.03.11 04:06:13 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote smiles. She swipes the datapad and the sketch vanishes.
    [ 2016.03.11 04:06:31 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "On a more.. serious matter.. Templar.. will you be able to be here tomorrow?"
    [ 2016.03.11 04:06:47 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "We are assaulting the Butcher's Tower when it comes out of reinforcement"
    [ 2016.03.11 04:07:08 ] Rhoxy Runekin > /emote leans back in her chair, already searching market and contract orders for components.
    [ 2016.03.11 04:07:21 ] Thal Vadam > /emote nods "Always ready"
    [ 2016.03.11 04:10:55 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I.have been a little indisposed recently. If I feel better. i will fly tomorrow."
    [ 2016.03.11 04:11:21 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "But you should contact your 'brother' Captain Utari Onzo to coordinate as he is leading the fleet"
    [ 2016.03.11 04:11:40 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Time is 18:00 eve time."
    [ 2016.03.11 04:11:47 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "fourteen hours from now"
    [ 2016.03.11 04:12:04 ] Rhoxy Runekin > /emote sets down her datapad, and picks up a menu.
    [ 2016.03.11 04:13:43 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote frowns, not liking the croissant, She sips her coffee and reviews the menu.
    [ 2016.03.11 04:14:14 ] Rhoxy Runekin > /emote orders for herself a chocolate cupcake with quafe frosting.
    [ 2016.03.11 04:14:28 ] Rhoxy Runekin > *and a quafe to drink.
    [ 2016.03.11 04:14:57 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote asks the waitress to remove the croissant and orders a knafeh.
    [ 2016.03.11 04:15:29 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote smiles sheepishly "I've had a craving for Ni Kunni cuisine." She looks at Rhoxy "Think that's enough Quafe?"
    [ 2016.03.11 04:17:24 ] Rhoxy Runekin > /emote takes a large bite. " Almost."
    [ 2016.03.11 04:17:38 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote rolls her eyes and glances at Thal.
    [ 2016.03.11 04:18:08 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > 'Templar, the survivors - i pray there are some - will be cared for by the Society"
    [ 2016.03.11 04:18:13 ] Thal Vadam > /emote blinks at Luna and shrugs
    [ 2016.03.11 04:18:27 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "His... henchman are being turned over to CVA to be tried by the Imperial Authorities
    [ 2016.03.11 04:18:32 ] Thal Vadam > /emote nods "Good..."
    [ 2016.03.11 04:18:36 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "So.. try to capture a few alive?"
    [ 2016.03.11 04:18:57 ] Thal Vadam > "Oh absolutely."
    [ 2016.03.11 04:19:01 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Mind you.. don't try too hard" she says bleakly.
    [ 2016.03.11 04:19:55 ] Rhoxy Runekin > /emote starts scribbling things on her napkin, mumbling into her quafe. once can almost see the gears turning in her head.
    [ 2016.03.11 04:20:29 ] Thal Vadam > /emote sighs "Very well..."
    [ 2016.03.11 04:26:25 ] Rhoxy Runekin > /emote looks up, "What is Aria's favorite color?"
    [ 2016.03.11 04:27:15 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I,," she looks surprised "I do not know."
    [ 2016.03.11 04:28:58 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Feel free to ask here."
    [ 2016.03.11 04:29:15 ] Rhoxy Runekin > /emote blinks. "we'll have to ask her. but in a subtle way. maybe offer her a whole bunch of pens and see which color she picks."
    [ 2016.03.11 04:29:51 ] Thal Vadam > "Well...I'm afraid I'm off today"
    [ 2016.03.11 04:30:17 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Oh she knows we are doing this"
    [ 2016.03.11 04:30:21 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "This is not a surprise, Just ask her."
    [ 2016.03.11 04:30:50 ] Rhoxy Runekin > "well that's no fun. can we still wrap it?"
    [ 2016.03.11 04:30:59 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Sure"
    [ 2016.03.11 04:34:34 ] Thal Vadam > /emote departs

    .Location: SFRIM Offices. Bar. Nahyeen VII, Zoar & Sons Factory

    Setting: 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 Lucas. 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. 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. Lunarisse's shelf has 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 secure richly coloured, dark wood box. A shelf labeled "Alizabeth" has several boxes of teas.There are a few other shelves that hold overflow and shared drinks for all. A well stocked refrigerator is behind the bar and equipmebnt to brew teas and coffees are behind the bar.

    On the walls are starscapes with Society members, painted by Lord Anderson.

    Against one wall is a majestic golden Tash-Murkon Grandmother Clock, secured so it does not tip.

    There is Sarum Shepard named " Quark"

    Exits: Gottin's Lamp - Kitchen, Gottin's Lamp - Sleeping Area, Gottin's Lamp - Library, and Gottin's Lamp

    [ 2016.03.11 02:55:14 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote walks in. She is casually dressed in her Pink Robe and Slippers and is carring a book and a glassof water.

    [ 2016.03.11 02:55:46 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Quark jumps up and fills up the rest of the couch.
    [ 2016.03.11 02:56:12 ] Velarra > /emote wandered out of the library and made her way gradually toward the bar....along the way she offered Luna a smile.. > Hi..
    [ 2016.03.11 02:56:45 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote slips the book under the blanket. She places her glass down "Hello Vellara"
    [ 2016.03.11 02:58:07 ] Velarra > /emote continued slowly on to the bar yet didn't ignore her directrix in the least..> 'Luna..
    [ 2016.03.11 02:58:52 ] Velarra > /emote once at the bar proceeded to pour herself a glass of water with ice..
    [ 2016.03.11 03:03:57 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote smiles wryly "it occurs to me I've never asked you to cook for me."
    [ 2016.03.11 03:06:08 ] Velarra > /emote nods > No, you've not, that i recall. For the most part people seem to have their own schedules, as such i've chosen to preprepare various options for people as they pass through the Lamp.
    [ 2016.03.11 03:06:41 ] Velarra > On occasion i have prepared dishes specifically for individuals
    [ 2016.03.11 03:07:10 ] Velarra > Pilot Vea, Runekin, Cussier.. for instance.
    [ 2016.03.11 03:07:23 ] Velarra > As well as for Aria.
    [ 2016.03.11 03:07:53 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods. She flushes before she speaks. "I.. have been having a craving, Velarra."
    [ 2016.03.11 03:08:44 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I.. really would like some Ni-Kunni cuisine some night." She adds thoughtfully "served picnic style on blankets and pillows in my oasis garden"
    [ 2016.03.11 03:09:16 ] Velarra > /emote nods at that and looks to Luna without any judgement, only genuine interest > Of course. I'd be happy to.
    [ 2016.03.11 03:10:00 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Good!" She smiles sheepishly. Then she flushes again "And no.. before you ask, I am not pregnant"
    [ 2016.03.11 03:10:30 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Although.. i haven't had cravings like this since Maria"
    [ 2016.03.11 03:11:21 ] Velarra > /emote nods > The thought, i assure you didn't pass through my mind. I'll be happy to prepare you something ni-kunni. Did you have a serving or preference in mind?
    [ 2016.03.11 03:13:06 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote thinks thoughtfully "Well..something with beetles of course"
    [ 2016.03.11 03:13:10 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Must have beetles"
    [ 2016.03.11 03:13:35 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "And.. prickly pear surprise is a wonderful appetizer"
    [ 2016.03.11 03:13:52 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > 'Beyond that.. surprise me."
    [ 2016.03.11 03:14:26 ] Velarra > /emote nods and smiles easily > Indeed. I'll see what i can come up with.
    [ 2016.03.11 03:17:02 ] Velarra > /emote takes a moment to sip her water.. > It was good to fly with you in tzvi.
    [ 2016.03.11 03:20:21 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "It was. I appreciated the help from all of you. it was the most critical part of the op, making sure we had a favorable timer for round ii"
    [ 2016.03.11 03:20:36 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "CVA will have matters in hand tomorrow.. but anyone from SFRIM is welcome to fly"
    [ 2016.03.11 03:24:57 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote smiles and leans back into her couch. Quark wags his tail slowly.
    [ 2016.03.11 03:26:37 ] Velarra > This will be good. CVA do have a degree of organization..
    [ 2016.03.11 03:28:16 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods. "Captain Onzo is a good organizer, as he showed at the PCP"
    [ 2016.03.11 03:30:07 ] Velarra > /emote nods and takes a near by seat..> I was surprised to understand the society had a capital fleet.
    [ 2016.03.11 03:32:01 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says "We don't advertise it, but we can field 2 dreads and one carrier, if needed"
    [ 2016.03.11 03:33:56 ] Velarra > Well that certainly is pleasant. Particularly for all manner of logistics.
    [ 2016.03.11 03:36:30 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods. "We've had the need before unfortunately and it is best to be prepared."
    [ 2016.03.11 03:36:47 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "If the Satellium had been available we might have flown all 3"
    [ 2016.03.11 03:37:37 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "But.." she smiles thinly "she's been occupied taking the fight to the Drifters"
    [ 2016.03.11 03:38:41 ] Velarra > /emote nods > They do seemingly pose quite the threat.
    [ 2016.03.11 03:39:38 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I'd like think the effortrs of the Consortium of which we assisted, was why they were turned back - along with the Imperial Navy - but I worry it's because of something else they are planning, the Drifters"
    [ 2016.03.11 03:41:11 ] Velarra > /emote nods > There's a distinct lack of information about them, still.
    [ 2016.03.11 03:41:22 ] Velarra > And it's rather uncomfortable.
    [ 2016.03.11 03:41:33 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods slightly.
    [ 2016.03.11 03:42:12 ] Velarra > Even, the formal diplomatic ties the empires have to them all remain particularly neutral.. Amarr included.
    [ 2016.03.11 03:42:24 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Well.. Amarr declared war"
    [ 2016.03.11 03:42:33 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "And they haven't surrendered..." she frowns
    [ 2016.03.11 03:42:35 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Only left"
    [ 2016.03.11 03:43:06 ] Velarra > Declared perhaps. But they remain formally neutral..
    [ 2016.03.11 03:43:17 ] Velarra > Which is.. curious.
    [ 2016.03.11 03:43:21 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote tilts her head "What do you mean?"
    [ 2016.03.11 03:43:48 ] Velarra > The amarr have set standings to the Drifters as... wholly neutral.
    [ 2016.03.11 03:43:57 ] Velarra > war? ... i'd never know
    [ 2016.03.11 03:44:13 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "How curious." She frowns
    [ 2016.03.11 03:44:27 ] Velarra > In fact, everyone.... has.
    [ 2016.03.11 03:48:00 ] Velarra > /emote sips her water again and casually settles into the warmth of the lamp's ambiance..
    [ 2016.03.11 03:48:28 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I.. despair about Concord and the DED sometimes."
    [ 2016.03.11 03:50:20 ] Velarra > /emote sighs > Concord let Endoma happen.. You can only take them so seriously.
    [ 2016.03.11 03:50:39 ] Velarra > Even if they are one of the few sources of real consequence in the cluster
    [ 2016.03.11 03:50:41 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods.
    [ 2016.03.11 03:56:35 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote sighs "Well I have a long day tomorrow. I need to return to Mehatoor."
    [ 2016.03.11 03:56:57 ] Velarra > Fly safe
    [ 2016.03.11 03:57:01 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote rises, with Quark leaping off at the same time. "Have a Blessed Night Velarra and thank you."
    [ 2016.03.11 03:57:21 ] Velarra > And you..
    [ 2016.03.11 03:58:10 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote exits and Quark pads after.

    New Eden Fair - A Ni-Kunni Water Garden from Mishi

    There is the quiet sound of water falling, and trickling. The garden resembles an oasis nestled into a niche surrounded by canyon walls on three sides and, thanks to holographic tech, opening to what seems to be endless desert sands. It is well lit from a full moon which hangs on the sky of Mishi IV. Stars sparkle like jewels in the night,From a spring fed high up in the canyon, descends a waterfall which cascades into a clear blue pool. Surrounding the pool are frail, but verdant Water Baron Fig and Emperor's Date Palm trees. Small bushes grow in clusters of Desert Rose, Fern of the Desert, and Wattle around a winding path. Steppe Skink and Al-Dehr Beetles scuttle through the undergrowth. The scents of the Desert Honeysuckle, known as the Angel's Trumpet, and the Bird of Paradise flower, which bears spicy fruits, fill the air. Oasis of Heaven Water Lilies bob quietly in the pond. A fire burns in a Brazier of smoked wood. In the background is the sound of traditional ni-kunni Wind Dancing music.

    A holographic recording by Lunarisse Aspenstar flickers in, and explains:The Ni-Kunni originated on the desert world of Mishi IV. Water is scarce on this harsh planet. Pre-Reclamation, water barons controlled large swaths of people and resources by virtue of their control of that precious resource, water, which is so common elsewhere. Water is a sign of wealth and power.While now Reclaimed, water continues to hold deep spiritual meaning for them. The ancient peoples worshiped a number of gods until enlighted as to the one true God. Paramount among them were the life-giving water god worshipped by the nomadic desert peoples and a rain god worshipped by city dwellers. Common to each is the belief in angels who supplied water to a thirsty people. Oasises, such as the one represented here, were cherished as holy places. Even today, the Ni-Kinni give thanks to the one true God for the gifts of water. The presence of rain, or a spring, is seen as a Blessing. Being associated with wealth, prosperous Holders, artisans and merchants often craft private walled water gardens for meditation and prayer. Water is used in Prayer and Blessings by clergy.

    [ 2016.03.12 00:49:34 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote sits by the waterfall, a small thermos of tea beside her.
    [ 2016.03.12 00:52:38 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote enters, as she does, she closes her eyes to light the sounds and feelings of the garden wafte over her. She smiles.
    [ 2016.03.12 00:53:42 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote glances over to Luna and frowns. She stands and takes a breath, apprehensive.
    [ 2016.03.12 00:54:07 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote opens her eyes, and continues to walk down the path with a slight skip in her step, and she leans up and plucks a fig.
    [ 2016.03.12 00:54:28 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Directrix . . . I . . ."
    [ 2016.03.12 00:54:33 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote glances and sees Alizabeth Vea . She pauses. "Hiyas"
    [ 2016.03.12 00:54:48 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote bows. "Salve."
    [ 2016.03.12 00:55:35 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "You like my hiding spot?" she asks shyly.
    [ 2016.03.12 00:56:30 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote slides down along the tree and sits, her legs crossed "What brings you here?"
    [ 2016.03.12 00:56:35 ] Alizabeth Vea > "You're hiding spot?" She blinks. "I wasn't exactly hiding. I was just . . . trying to figure out who I am. I, um, needed to talk to you."
    [ 2016.03.12 00:57:08 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Oh sure, I like to talk." She smiles "gets my mmind off things."
    [ 2016.03.12 00:58:13 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote nods and . . . sits. "They mailed me again. Whoever the Sanist are."
    [ 2016.03.12 00:59:27 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote blinks confused, she smiles prettily "Whoever?" She nods.
    [ 2016.03.12 00:59:43 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Directrix, are you okay?"
    [ 2016.03.12 01:00:11 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I'm fine" she says. "What did they mail you?, Whoever they are?"
    [ 2016.03.12 01:00:39 ] Alizabeth Vea > "The Sani cult that I used to be a part of?"
    [ 2016.03.12 01:01:10 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Oh. Wasn't sure what you meant, when you said 'whoever the sanist are'."
    [ 2016.03.12 01:01:15 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "So you don't know who mailed you?"
    [ 2016.03.12 01:02:20 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Well. I don't know their name, who it is exactly. But, they told me to come back to the old asteroid we had for our base." she takes a breath. "An old clone was there, from before I wiped my memories."
    [ 2016.03.12 01:02:47 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote blinks, but smiles politely as she listens to the cute caldari who seems harmless enough. She bites her fig.
    [ 2016.03.12 01:03:08 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Did you go?"
    [ 2016.03.12 01:03:19 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I know that I should have told you, but I went alone. I'm sorry."
    [ 2016.03.12 01:04:36 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Oh gosh" she looks flustered. She is wonders why she should have been told. "Well.. I guess you went. What happened?"
    [ 2016.03.12 01:04:55 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I killed . . . myself. I was fast on the blaster. But she killed a girl."
    [ 2016.03.12 01:05:56 ] Velarra > /emote had taken her time and brought along a hover cart atop which rested a basket of various preprepared dining supplies. She paused some to appreciate the garden and occasionally to admire a plant or decorative cluster of stones in the sand. -c
    [ 2016.03.12 01:07:45 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote pales. "How.. awful." She looks at Ali. She doesn't look like an legendary ghul.
    [ 2016.03.12 01:08:52 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I already told Lady Newelle."
    [ 2016.03.12 01:10:08 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote turns whiter if possible. "How.. did she take it?" She glances and sees the achuran with the hover cart and tenses.
    [ 2016.03.12 01:10:26 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Better than I thought."
    [ 2016.03.12 01:11:07 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "So.. she won't enslave you?"
    [ 2016.03.12 01:11:39 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote sips her tea. "Of course not. I asked her again to let me leave, back to Deklein. She refused."
    [ 2016.03.12 01:11:56 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote's eyes widen. "She really must be amazing."
    [ 2016.03.12 01:12:15 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Ma'am, are you sure you're okay?"
    [ 2016.03.12 01:12:23 ] Velarra > /emote Eventually, did make her way to within their sight, following along one of the garden paths and paused, taking a moment to be distracted by a particular floral arrangement..
    [ 2016.03.12 01:12:45 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says uncertaintly "Why wouldn't I be? This place is lovely and I do like hiding away here when... stuff's not alirhgt."
    [ 2016.03.12 01:13:09 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says with a nervous giggle "do you come here to make out or just to hide?"
    [ 2016.03.12 01:13:19 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Well, it's just . . . you know La--" she blinks
    [ 2016.03.12 01:13:44 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote stammers. "I have not come here to make out, ma'am."
    [ 2016.03.12 01:14:02 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says "oh that's a shame. You're kind of cute."
    [ 2016.03.12 01:14:08 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote giggles nervously.
    [ 2016.03.12 01:14:51 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote blinks again. "I'm . . . wha-what?"
    [ 2016.03.12 01:15:10 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote looks down "Cute." She looks up "we don't see many of you here on Mishi"
    [ 2016.03.12 01:16:10 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > She stands up "Do you like wind dancing?" She begins to spin to the Wind Dancing music. "I could show you?"
    [ 2016.03.12 01:16:17 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote closes her jaw. "And, well, I'm afraid I don't know your name."
    [ 2016.03.12 01:17:15 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Alqamar" she pauses. "Or Moon in Caldari or Luna in Amarr"
    [ 2016.03.12 01:18:12 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Do you like it?"
    [ 2016.03.12 01:18:41 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote nods slowly. "I, umm, think we should get you to the medical bay."
    [ 2016.03.12 01:19:07 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote fidgets slightly on the balls of her heals. "No, I don't want to go back there." She looks "Oh look, someone has food, i think?"
    [ 2016.03.12 01:19:09 ] Velarra > /emote did note the seemingly cheerful state of affairs between the pair and turned away from her distracted floral appreciation as she headed over to join Ali and Luna..
    [ 2016.03.12 01:19:17 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Back there?"
    [ 2016.03.12 01:19:33 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Where they have my parents. The trial's not done yet."
    [ 2016.03.12 01:19:41 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Trial?"
    [ 2016.03.12 01:19:55 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says in a sulkly voice. "That's what i said." She looks at Velarra "Food?"
    [ 2016.03.12 01:20:14 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I am so lost, what trial?"
    [ 2016.03.12 01:20:15 ] Velarra > /emote nods with a genial smile > Yes.
    [ 2016.03.12 01:21:02 ] Velarra > I brought a blanket as well, if you'd like it served in a casual setting.
    [ 2016.03.12 01:21:18 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Where they decide if you get enslaved, when you break the law." She looks at Vel "Oh gosh, so many nice people here today."
    [ 2016.03.12 01:21:19 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Thanks!"
    [ 2016.03.12 01:21:38 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Correct me if I am wrong, but isn't your father a capsuleer?"
    [ 2016.03.12 01:22:17 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "No. He's a businessman."
    [ 2016.03.12 01:22:25 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Wait, he's you're uncle. Right. What did your father do?"
    [ 2016.03.12 01:22:36 ] Alizabeth Vea > (your)
    [ 2016.03.12 01:23:32 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote accepts the blanket from Velarra and settles onto it "Sit and not ask so many questions?" She pouts.
    [ 2016.03.12 01:24:06 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Do all Caldari talk so much? I thought.. that was Gallente and you... were doers"
    [ 2016.03.12 01:24:23 ] Velarra > /emote nods at that and brings the cart over to a place near by...before opening it
    [ 2016.03.12 01:24:35 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote flutters her eyes, then giggles. She looks at the Cart.
    [ 2016.03.12 01:25:41 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Apologies. I didn't mean to interrupt your, um, picnic. I will leave you both to your, um, privacy."
    [ 2016.03.12 01:25:48 ] Velarra > /emote almost ritualistically withdrew a collection of small pots, several primary dining plates, for each of them...
    [ 2016.03.12 01:26:23 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Oh. Please stay"
    [ 2016.03.12 01:26:35 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I think.. she's just a servant, one of Daddies" she whispers
    [ 2016.03.12 01:26:53 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Will you share my food with me? It's been so lonely waiting" she asks plaintively.
    [ 2016.03.12 01:26:55 ] Velarra > I... was not aware you'd be joining us, but there is an ample collection of supplies..
    [ 2016.03.12 01:27:27 ] Alizabeth Vea > "If I stay, you won't try and make out with me, will you?"
    [ 2016.03.12 01:27:52 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote blushes. "I am sorry if I was so forward."
    [ 2016.03.12 01:28:10 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I'll .. behave" she says with a slight pout and looks at velarra. "What supplies?"
    [ 2016.03.12 01:28:19 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote looks to Vel, worried.
    [ 2016.03.12 01:28:53 ] Velarra > Ni-kunni dining..
    [ 2016.03.12 01:29:04 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Of course" She rolls her eyes. "Whatcha got?"
    [ 2016.03.12 01:30:13 ] Velarra > A collection of various protein crawlers and a small variety of seasonings..
    [ 2016.03.12 01:30:43 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote blinks trying to decipher what Velarra means. "Oh? You mean beetles?"
    [ 2016.03.12 01:31:02 ] Velarra > /emote nods > In a word, yes.
    [ 2016.03.12 01:31:07 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Great" she bounces up and down slightly.
    [ 2016.03.12 01:31:16 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote looks at Ali "You gotta have some"
    [ 2016.03.12 01:31:26 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I'm . . . much more of a noodles kind of girl."
    [ 2016.03.12 01:31:26 ] Velarra > I've attempted a summer salad ensemble..
    [ 2016.03.12 01:32:10 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Nifty. Do you have slugs? They are pretty rare."
    [ 2016.03.12 01:32:47 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote turns pale.
    [ 2016.03.12 01:33:12 ] Velarra > I've been attempting to work out a suitable seasoning for them...They do add a pleasant bite to the noodle and greenery. platter.
    [ 2016.03.12 01:33:41 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Noodles!" She looks at Ali "You definitely gotta have some"
    [ 2016.03.12 01:33:57 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Sans slugs."
    [ 2016.03.12 01:36:21 ] Velarra > /emote speaks and along the way extracts various pots which are placed on the blanket. many are tightly closed.. > I've managed to keep a fresh n' lively bowl if you'd like... rice, live ones and seasoning.
    [ 2016.03.12 01:36:47 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Ooooh!" she squeals. "I'll have some of those."
    [ 2016.03.12 01:36:54 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "We'll need long forks to keep pinned"
    [ 2016.03.12 01:37:05 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I'll just have tea."
    [ 2016.03.12 01:37:25 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote pouts. "Try a little bit of the salad. It's really sweet and spicy at the same time"
    [ 2016.03.12 01:37:26 ] Velarra > /emote nods and fetches the forks as well as a tea set > Precisely..
    [ 2016.03.12 01:37:51 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote gives Ali a pointed look, then falls back on her legs.
    [ 2016.03.12 01:38:21 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I'm sorry, ma'am, I stopped eating bugs when I graduated SERE school."
    [ 2016.03.12 01:38:28 ] Velarra > /emote with a spare fork gestures gently to the various pots arrayed on the blanket.. > Live ones, plain salad, salad with beetles, salad with crawlers, noodles with seasoning and crawlers n' larvae..
    [ 2016.03.12 01:39:26 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote leans forward and begins to select some of the more "delicable" looking dishes and places them on her plate.
    [ 2016.03.12 01:40:47 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Well, I am not kissing you after you eat that."
    [ 2016.03.12 01:40:55 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote pauses in mid bite.
    [ 2016.03.12 01:41:59 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote shrugs then finishes it. "Do you have mint tea, miss?" she asks Velarra Brightly.
    [ 2016.03.12 01:42:16 ] Velarra > /emote looks to Ali thoughtfully... and gestures to one of the closed pots> , ... noodles with seasoning, a little hot but nothing too atrocious..
    [ 2016.03.12 01:42:40 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Just tea, please."
    [ 2016.03.12 01:43:43 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote continues to eat "So.. do you think those awful Sanists are done with now?"
    [ 2016.03.12 01:44:37 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Ms. Jenneth says no, and I agree with her. I'm happy that the admiral won't lop off my head, but it's probably the right thing to do."
    [ 2016.03.12 01:45:11 ] Velarra > /emote proceeds to prepare mint tea setting out several cups, and the tea pot.. over a suitable heating element
    [ 2016.03.12 01:45:18 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote shudders "Don't you think it's better to live?"
    [ 2016.03.12 01:45:34 ] Alizabeth Vea > "At what cost?"
    [ 2016.03.12 01:45:37 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Death, is scary"
    [ 2016.03.12 01:46:16 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I'm not ready to be judged. They say I might need to atone for my daddy's sins. What if I die too soon?"
    [ 2016.03.12 01:46:32 ] Alizabeth Vea > "For good, I suppose."
    [ 2016.03.12 01:47:22 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote takes her cup of tea "For good? yeah,it's forever."
    [ 2016.03.12 01:47:44 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "A million years, a billion, a trillion and it's still only a speck of forever, unless we're good with God"
    [ 2016.03.12 01:48:33 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I don't know what else I can do to get good with Him. And, to be honest, I sometimes think that I don't deserve to be."
    [ 2016.03.12 01:49:09 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Look around you? There's more wonderful stuff than we'll ever see in our life. We're special. Mostly."
    [ 2016.03.12 01:49:40 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I mean, it could take me centuries just to see everything on Mishi... and it's just a drop in the bucket of what God's made"
    [ 2016.03.12 01:50:02 ] Velarra > /emote proceeded to open the pots that had been arrayed on the blanket of various salads and noodle dishes. Several had their caps left on. These had been the ones Vel had implied had live contents..
    [ 2016.03.12 01:50:30 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Even beetles" she giggles and takes another.
    [ 2016.03.12 01:50:34 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Yes, well. My sins are worse than your father's."
    [ 2016.03.12 01:51:48 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote eyes widen at that. "I.. er.. well.. as long as you won't kill and eat me and drink my blood like a ghul, I am sure you're not that bad" she says guilelessly.
    [ 2016.03.12 01:52:03 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote looks down. "I don't do that."
    [ 2016.03.12 01:52:27 ] Velarra > /emote poured tea for the gathered and settled into a platter of less than lively mundane salad and noodles with seasoning.
    [ 2016.03.12 01:52:56 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote smiles prettily "Then you're not that bad."
    [ 2016.03.12 01:54:54 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote sips some more tea 'this is really good. Do you cook this all the time?" she asks Velarra
    [ 2016.03.12 01:56:11 ] Velarra > /emote looks to luna thoughtfully > No. Not too often. Yet i've been studying it with some renewed focus since you mentioned a preference recently.
    [ 2016.03.12 01:57:06 ] Velarra > I do hope they are acceptable. Temperatures, humidity levels... and appropriate seasonings to mix with, are a bit of a challenge.
    [ 2016.03.12 01:58:16 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "it's really good". She says coquetishly, "If she would try a juicy Ni-Kunni dsh, i think she's like it"
    [ 2016.03.12 01:58:27 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote looks at Ali, then giggles softly.
    [ 2016.03.12 01:58:30 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > *dish
    [ 2016.03.12 01:58:54 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I like Ni-Kunni food well enough. Just not bugs. My ex-wife was Ni-Kunni. You know this. I've told you."
    [ 2016.03.12 02:00:09 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote blinks. "We've only just met and I didn't think we could marry girls. That.. sounds interesting."
    [ 2016.03.12 02:00:40 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote blinks. "I'm sorry, did you say that you just met me?"
    [ 2016.03.12 02:01:10 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote twitches "I'm sorry.. I have a bad head for faces. I didn't mean to offend."
    [ 2016.03.12 02:02:34 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Directrix, I apologize, but, I am going to have to insist that you come with me."
    [ 2016.03.12 02:02:48 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says 'Luna, call me Luna"
    [ 2016.03.12 02:03:24 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Luna. I need to take you to the medtechs now."
    [ 2016.03.12 02:03:43 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says "I feel ok... but if you think it's time to go back..."
    [ 2016.03.12 02:04:31 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote looks at Velarra "hey, you can have the rest of this. it was amazing"
    [ 2016.03.12 02:04:40 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote stands and holds her hand out to Luna. "I am sorry."
    [ 2016.03.12 02:05:21 ] Velarra > /emote looks between Luna and Ali, cautiously.. > Do you need assistence, Alizabeth?
    [ 2016.03.12 02:05:58 ] Velarra > I'm glad you enjoyed the preparations, Luna.
    [ 2016.03.12 02:06:06 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote stands. She smooths her dress unconscously. "it was really good."
    [ 2016.03.12 02:07:13 ] Alizabeth Vea > "We can take my ship." Ali waits to follow Luna, hoping to God that she doesn't have to kill her CEO. That would be horrible.
    [ 2016.03.12 02:07:21 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Oh cool."
    [ 2016.03.12 02:07:36 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Show me the way. I've never taken a ship a before!"
    [ 2016.03.12 02:07:56 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote nods. "Just down the path and then to the right."
    [ 2016.03.12 02:08:13 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I should be okay, Velarra."
    [ 2016.03.12 02:08:24 ] Velarra > /emote moves to neatly collect up the various food supplies that had been layed out, replacing them in the basket from which they came..
    [ 2016.03.12 02:08:37 ] Velarra > Alright then. Fly safe, both of you.
    [ 2016.03.12 02:09:35 ] Velarra > /emote offered a polite bow and eventually withdrew from the pair with the various dining supplies neatly packed away
    [ 2016.03.12 02:10:16 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote follows the directions Ali gave and exits.
    [ 2016.03.12 02:10:37 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote follows.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------
    Channel Name: New Eden Fair - Gardens of the Empire

    Location: TES Empress's Bounty, Luxury Yacht

    Currently docked: Nahyeen VII - Zoar and Sons Factory A small but lush space. A White Arbor stands at the entrance with a rambling climbing Blush Pink Colored Rose Bush entwined along its arch. At the base of the arbor are the Yellow blooms of the Forsythia bush. Should you enter under the arch, you entered into an small enclosed garden space in a hexagonal room with four portals, in addition to the entrance.There is an informational table along with marble benches for visitors.A holographic recording by Lunarisse Aspenstar flickers in the center of the space, and explains:Gardens can be a window into a culture. This can be reflected by the lay-out, the purpose and use, and the plants themselves. Traditions also can arise and be reflected by gardens. These traditions are often informed by 'popular' piety in additional to more formal prescriptions. It is the hope of this Exhibitor that the Gardens of the Empire may provide an insight into the soul of the Empire. For example, in this small room itself, there is the Forsythia, commonly known as the "Golden Bower", or more whimsically, the "Golden Fleet", beloved for its clusters of massed golden flowers. Gold, of course, is color associated with the Empire and commoners often show their pride in selecting this rambling bush for their gardens which greets each spring with its blooms. The blush pink rose is known as Jamyl's Rose and was specially bred in honor of her coronation as Empress, using rose varieties from across the Empire to represent unity.Today, the Exhibit is pleased to present four garden archetypes:A Formal Garden of Dam TorsadA Khanid Meditation Garden A Colonist's Garden A Ni-Kunni Water Garden from Mishi IV

    [ 2016.03.12 02:10:53 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote exits the holofield about A Ni-Kunni Water Garden from Mishi IV . She stumbles for a moment and blinks, her eyes glaze over for a moment.
    [ 2016.03.12 02:11:31 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote cleches her jaw. "Luna?"
    [ 2016.03.12 02:12:00 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote looks around, looking briefly disoriented, but quickly adopts her usual stand and posture. She looks back and sees Ali. She blinks "Err.. hello Satellium.. Alo"
    [ 2016.03.12 02:12:03 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > *Ali
    [ 2016.03.12 02:12:45 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Directrix. Forgive me, but you are unwell. I need to get you to the med bay."
    [ 2016.03.12 02:17:25 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote straightens, takes a few breaths "i.. am fine. But I need to sit down." She looks at Ali "it's been.. a stressful few days" she says wearkly.
    [ 2016.03.12 02:18:38 ] Alizabeth Vea > "With respect, you are not fine. You just said I was cute, acted like you wanted to kiss me and claimed you never met me."
    [ 2016.03.12 02:18:56 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote sits on the bench. She looks at Ali, turns beet red "Err.. I said all that?"
    [ 2016.03.12 02:19:06 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote sighs.
    [ 2016.03.12 02:19:21 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Well as my Satellium, you should know what's going on I think.. in confidence?"
    [ 2016.03.12 02:19:25 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Sit with me, please"
    [ 2016.03.12 02:19:38 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Yes. Which is why I am insisting that you go to the med bay for a full exam. To check for a TCMC, or if you are even you."
    [ 2016.03.12 02:19:52 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I will allow that to satisfy you. It is not a TCMC, however."
    [ 2016.03.12 02:20:08 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "It's.... a side effect of what i did last week."
    [ 2016.03.12 02:20:28 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote stands, but nods for Luna to go on.
    [ 2016.03.12 02:20:30 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > On my.. err.. vacation."
    [ 2016.03.12 02:20:38 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Confidence?" She looks to make sure.
    [ 2016.03.12 02:20:56 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I swear on my life."
    [ 2016.03.12 02:21:31 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote sighs. "I was.. repaying a favor. Someone.. wanted me to see what.. life was like for the less... fortunate in the Empire. Not just Nauplius's victums."
    [ 2016.03.12 02:21:53 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Okay? What does that have to do with making our with me?"
    [ 2016.03.12 02:22:30 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "There was a Ni Kunni woman, who was sold into slavery due to her father's trangressions.. failure to pay debt, really."
    [ 2016.03.12 02:23:06 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote darkens.
    [ 2016.03.12 02:23:15 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Let me explain the whole story."
    [ 2016.03.12 02:23:31 ] Alizabeth Vea > "You should just get rid of that whole damn idea."
    [ 2016.03.12 02:23:53 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > " When all was said and done following her graduation from private schooling at 24, she and her family were separated, sold on the public slave markets and taken into Amarrian holder possession. She never saw or heard from any of them again."
    [ 2016.03.12 02:24:09 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "She.. later escaped slavery but had a terminal disease."
    [ 2016.03.12 02:24:23 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Those who assisted her, preserbed her memories of her life from start to finish."
    [ 2016.03.12 02:24:38 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote frowns more.
    [ 2016.03.12 02:24:50 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "She wanted them shared with someone in the Empire who had.. the ability to make sure laws were followed."
    [ 2016.03.12 02:25:13 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Or maybe make a difference.. as her experience.. was not a model of what.. should happen."
    [ 2016.03.12 02:25:17 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote trails off and sighs.
    [ 2016.03.12 02:25:44 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "So I lived her life last week.. and its taking me a few days to reintegrate into myself again. I... still remember her."
    [ 2016.03.12 02:26:16 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I admire you for doing that, actually. I would . . . appreciate it if I could know in advance, so I don't think you've been clonejacked, or some dark twin has taken your place like one tried to take mine."
    [ 2016.03.12 02:26:19 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "For up to 48-96 hours.. i might get confused and think i am her.. at some point in her life."
    [ 2016.03.12 02:26:21 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods.
    [ 2016.03.12 02:26:25 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I should have.. told you."
    [ 2016.03.12 02:26:29 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I didn't tell anyone."
    [ 2016.03.12 02:26:57 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote latches onto something "Like one tried to yours?"
    [ 2016.03.12 02:27:03 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote tries to smile. "If you'd like to go back to the garden, I think she wants to make out with me. Of course, she ate snails, so I might go get some mouthwash first."
    [ 2016.03.12 02:27:16 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote blushes again "Oh god." she giggles.
    [ 2016.03.12 02:27:41 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says in a strained voice "please.. do not tell anyonme."
    [ 2016.03.12 02:27:54 ] Alizabeth Vea > "You do kind of have Ni-Kunni eyes. That was Z's most attractive feature."
    [ 2016.03.12 02:27:57 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote flushes deeper, her face is a nice shade of pink.
    [ 2016.03.12 02:28:11 ] Alizabeth Vea > "That you ate snails? Not a soul. Vel was there, though."
    [ 2016.03.12 02:28:30 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Well.." she rubs her eyes. "I'll talk to Velarra too and make sure it remains in confidence there."
    [ 2016.03.12 02:29:01 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I.. will disable my access to key corporation functions for 48 more hours, if that assures you."
    [ 2016.03.12 02:29:11 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "That's.. about as long it as it should take."
    [ 2016.03.12 02:29:18 ] Alizabeth Vea > "And if she hits on me again?"
    [ 2016.03.12 02:29:43 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote flushes. "Well.. it's not me. it's.. her."
    [ 2016.03.12 02:30:11 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says quickly and hastily "Ali! You were almost replaced with someone?"
    [ 2016.03.12 02:30:21 ] Alizabeth Vea > "So, is that a yes or a no?"
    [ 2016.03.12 02:30:25 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote is changing the subject, but yes she wants to know.
    [ 2016.03.12 02:30:56 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Hold on, this is important. I haven't had a good cuddle in three years."
    [ 2016.03.12 02:31:08 ] Alizabeth Vea > "She thinks I am cute." Ali nods.
    [ 2016.03.12 02:31:11 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says wryly "Luna... Alqamar has a mind of her own...."
    [ 2016.03.12 02:31:17 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I... see no harm if she appears again."
    [ 2016.03.12 02:32:12 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says peckishly "Now,.. I've spilled my beans. Spill yours."
    [ 2016.03.12 02:32:29 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote grins. "Okay, then. As to the other things, the Sani mailed me and told me to go back to the asteroid base where we were set up. They had an old clone of mine from before the mind wipe. I was faster with a gun than her."
    [ 2016.03.12 02:33:26 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods, a frown on her face.
    [ 2016.03.12 02:34:48 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote sighs. "I don't think there's anything you can say to me that Lady Newelle or Ms. Jenneth have not."
    [ 2016.03.12 02:35:39 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods. "I am glad you dealt with it. It.. is worrisome they are still pushing you. And.. let us know before you go next time?"
    [ 2016.03.12 02:35:47 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "You are not without friends."
    [ 2016.03.12 02:35:53 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Yes. I know. I should have."
    [ 2016.03.12 02:38:06 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote looks at Ali. "So you killled.. yourself?"
    [ 2016.03.12 02:38:15 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I . . . I was pretty messed up after . . . I still am. Drinking again."
    [ 2016.03.12 02:38:48 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote quirks a smile "I'll do my medical test as you asked.. but.. how do we know this is... is really you? Can you do a test to verify you are a more recent clone?"
    [ 2016.03.12 02:39:12 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "For everyone's peace of mind." she pauses and says wryly "We'll get get tested together"
    [ 2016.03.12 02:41:01 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote pulls out a knife from her boot. "If there's any doubt." she flips the blade to hand it to Luna. "Stab true."
    [ 2016.03.12 02:42:48 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote shakes her head "Silly. Just have them take a cell sample. I am not killing you." she says bleakly "I've had to clean you up before, and I am not in the mood to do it again tonight"
    [ 2016.03.12 02:43:14 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Shall we go to the med bay? I'll go first". She smirkss.
    [ 2016.03.12 02:43:53 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Of course. I'm not sure what the test would show."
    [ 2016.03.12 02:48:15 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "If they had an old clone of yours.. cells age. You.. are more recent due to.. umm.. recent things. Your cells will be younger. Let's go"
    [ 2016.03.12 02:48:34 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Alright."
    [ 2016.03.12 02:48:37 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote rises and extends her hand to Ali. "I'll go first."
    [ 2016.03.12 02:49:48 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote sheathes the knife back in her boot. "Of course. I mean it, though. If you're not sure it's me, kill me. Kill me and wipe my memory. All of it."
    [ 2016.03.12 02:51:18 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says simply "No, I am sure. But as my security officer, I agree we should be safe and test."
    [ 2016.03.12 02:51:41 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote nods and heads to her ship
    [ 2016.03.12 02:52:39 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **end rp if you wish at this point and assume we both checked out? We're also still in our hangars in Nahyeen connected to the offices***

    Channel Name: New Eden Fair - A Ni-Kunni Water Garden from Mishi

    There is the quiet sound of water falling, and trickling. The garden resembles an oasis nestled into a niche surrounded by canyon walls on three sides and, thanks to holographic tech, opening to what seems to be endless desert sands. It is well lit from a full moon which hangs on the sky of Mishi IV. Stars sparkle like jewels in the night,From a spring fed high up in the canyon, descends a waterfall which cascades into a clear blue pool. Surrounding the pool are frail, but verdant Water Baron Fig and Emperor's Date Palm trees. Small bushes grow in clusters of Desert Rose, Fern of the Desert, and Wattle around a winding path. Steppe Skink and Al-Dehr Beetles scuttle through the undergrowth. The scents of the Desert Honeysuckle, known as the Angel's Trumpet, and the Bird of Paradise flower, which bears spicy fruits, fill the air. Oasis of Heaven Water Lilies bob quietly in the pond. A fire burns in a Brazier of smoked wood. In the background is the sound of traditional ni-kunni Wind Dancing music.

    [ 2016.03.14 23:56:14 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote enters. She is carrying the same instrument as before. She skips down the path.
    [ 2016.03.14 23:57:21 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote looks up from her book. She smiles. "Luna or umm, Alaquasomething?"
    [ 2016.03.14 23:58:14 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote sees Ali and makes her way over. "Hey you." She giggles "I said Luna if you can't pronounce it. It means that in Ancient Amarrish."
    [ 2016.03.14 23:58:54 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Well, if you want to say it again for me, so I can make sure to remember it?"
    [ 2016.03.14 23:59:30 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Alqamar?" She pouts. "It's not that hard to say."
    [ 2016.03.15 00:00:00 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote sits down and curls her legs in a girlish fashion. "Hiding again?"
    [ 2016.03.15 00:00:50 ] Alizabeth Vea > "True, but I grew up with Caldari. Alqamar is a nice name." She shrugs. "I come here to think. Are you hiding?"
    [ 2016.03.15 00:01:07 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Waiting. it's so hard" she complains.
    [ 2016.03.15 00:01:58 ] Alizabeth Vea > "What are you waiting for?"
    [ 2016.03.15 00:04:03 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote pads quietly in from the entry, a long-haired plume of murder sidling along beside her. Meogoleh is not on a lead this time (though that hardly seems to make any difference). Nor, however, is he muzzled.
    [ 2016.03.15 00:04:20 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "them to decide."
    [ 2016.03.15 00:04:38 ] Alizabeth Vea > "When will you know?"
    [ 2016.03.15 00:04:40 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote sighs unhappily. "The trial finished yesterday."
    [ 2016.03.15 00:04:58 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Oh!" she goes over and hugs Al, then gives a peck "i am so worried!"
    [ 2016.03.15 00:06:17 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote hugs Luna back. She's still conflicted. "If it makes you feel better, I would take you away from here and save you, but I can't. What will happen will happen. Just . . . stay brave."
    [ 2016.03.15 00:07:49 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I.." says uncertainly "i'll try..."
    [ 2016.03.15 00:08:43 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Can I play my Salamiyyah?"
    [ 2016.03.15 00:08:51 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote changes the subject.
    [ 2016.03.15 00:09:14 ] Alizabeth Vea > "This is why I always feel like an outsider . . . why I don't think I could ever actually be Amarr." she sighs and nods. "I would like that. And no eating bugs today so I can get a proper kiss."
    [ 2016.03.15 00:11:24 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote giggles. She leans up and gives Ali a big kiss! Mercurially she says "i want to play my Salamiyyah. Can youwind dance?"
    [ 2016.03.15 00:12:19 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote blinks. "Uh, I don't know how. I kind of learned some, a bit, I think, maybe?"
    [ 2016.03.15 00:12:35 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote wanders nearby without interrupting, Meogoleh alongside her. After a few minutes she pulls something from her bag that looks like a tan-colored racquetball. Meogoleh is instantly attentive*
    [ 2016.03.15 00:14:21 ] Aria Jenneth > *she holds the ball up, and points to it* [Find it. Hold ...]
    [ 2016.03.15 00:15:43 ] Aria Jenneth > *Meo stays at her side as she flicks the ball across the garden. Where it lands, it immediately unfolds a set of legs, and goes scurrying off into the bushes, where it remains, moving irregularly from cover to cover.*
    [ 2016.03.15 00:15:49 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote sits down obliviously "Well it's easy.. you just spi......"
    [ 2016.03.15 00:16:30 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote sees movement in the bushes "What is that?" she pales and stands, clutching her Salamiyyah.
    [ 2016.03.15 00:16:53 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote turns and looks. "I don't know."
    [ 2016.03.15 00:17:18 ] Aria Jenneth > *the ball makes the occasional small animal-like trill as it scurries*
    [ 2016.03.15 00:18:07 ] Aria Jenneth > *Meogoleh keeps looking expectantly at Aria, then at after the "ball," then back at Aria. He's drooling furiously*
    [ 2016.03.15 00:18:28 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote turns pale. "Oh no!!!!!!!!!!!!"
    [ 2016.03.15 00:18:50 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote sees the slaver hound "they've come for me. Oh no!" She holds her hands close, frozen.
    [ 2016.03.15 00:19:13 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote look like a furrier (or deer) in the headlights,.
    [ 2016.03.15 00:19:20 ] Aria Jenneth > [Seek. Soft mouth.]
    [ 2016.03.15 00:19:35 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote turns to Luna and grabs her firmly, but gently, and places her behind Ali. "It's Ms. Jenneth's slaver. Don't worry. I won't let it get you."
    [ 2016.03.15 00:19:58 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "The trial must be lost. They've come for me...." she cries.
    [ 2016.03.15 00:20:50 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote turns to Luna and Ali places her hands on Luna's shoulder. "They wouldn't send a slaver for you."
    [ 2016.03.15 00:21:04 ] Aria Jenneth > *aaaaaand, Meo slinks off towards the bushes with eager, drooly enthusiasm*
    [ 2016.03.15 00:22:57 ] Aria Jenneth > *a first pass doesn't immediately turn up the ball (it's hiding a few feet from Luna and Ali, and has gone silent at the hound's approach). Meo prowls about, peering around the edges of vegetation and sniffing carefully*
    [ 2016.03.15 00:23:38 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote turns and yells. "Jenneth, call off your pet!"
    [ 2016.03.15 00:23:39 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Who is she? One of the Bragians hired by Milord to round up criminals?"
    [ 2016.03.15 00:23:49 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote is backing away behind Ali, looking ready to bolt.
    [ 2016.03.15 00:24:08 ] Aria Jenneth > ...?
    [ 2016.03.15 00:24:32 ] Aria Jenneth > ... [Meogoleh! Heel!]
    [ 2016.03.15 00:24:37 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote raises her foot to pull a long knife out of her boot and hands it to Luna. "Here. It will make you feel better to just hold it."
    [ 2016.03.15 00:24:46 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote takes it shaking.
    [ 2016.03.15 00:25:17 ] Aria Jenneth > *The slaver turns with a most disappointed look, but returns to Aria's side*
    [ 2016.03.15 00:25:45 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Luna is here and she's . . . not herself, exactly."
    [ 2016.03.15 00:26:03 ] Aria Jenneth > *Aria gets up, reaching down to scritch Meogoleh's head and shoulders as she does*
    [ 2016.03.15 00:26:41 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "My name is Luna.. who is she." She is holding the knife in the pose of someone obviously used to wielding any weaponry.
    [ 2016.03.15 00:26:51 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > *unused
    [ 2016.03.15 00:26:54 ] Aria Jenneth > ...? *she walks over carefully, the slaver loping beside her gazing longingly at the toy-concealing bushes*
    [ 2016.03.15 00:27:14 ] Aria Jenneth > *it doesn't help that the toy emits an enticing trill*
    [ 2016.03.15 00:27:37 ] Alizabeth Vea > "This is Ms. Jenneth. She's a pilot like me."
    [ 2016.03.15 00:27:53 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Why does she have a Slaver Hound, then?"
    [ 2016.03.15 00:28:02 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote looks cautiously at Aria.
    [ 2016.03.15 00:28:18 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote looks to Aria.
    [ 2016.03.15 00:28:19 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote bows to Luna and Ali* Salve, Directrix, Ali ... um.
    [ 2016.03.15 00:28:42 ] Aria Jenneth > Is ... something wrong? *she eyes the knife in her superior's hands*
    [ 2016.03.15 00:29:04 ] Alizabeth Vea > "She's not herself, but everything is okay."
    [ 2016.03.15 00:29:23 ] Aria Jenneth > ... not herself, like ...? She's someone else right now?
    [ 2016.03.15 00:29:36 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote nods slowly.
    [ 2016.03.15 00:30:55 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote does not look at all comforted or relaxed. She repeats "Why.. does she have a Slaver Hound?"
    [ 2016.03.15 00:32:12 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Aria, maybe you could answer Alqamar?"
    [ 2016.03.15 00:33:06 ] Aria Jenneth > ... Meogoleh is ... a companion and guardian. He's still young, though.
    [ 2016.03.15 00:33:45 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote stares at Aria like she grew three heads.
    [ 2016.03.15 00:34:09 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "You're not of them, one of the Bragian Order ?"
    [ 2016.03.15 00:34:57 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote why wonders why anyone not.. hunting criminals or slaves would want one of those... beasts.
    [ 2016.03.15 00:35:45 ] Aria Jenneth > ... *she shakes her head, idly petting Meogoleh's neck. The slaver's switched his attention from the toy to Luna*
    [ 2016.03.15 00:37:05 ] Aria Jenneth > ... I'm ... one of the Society members. Like Ali, here.
    [ 2016.03.15 00:37:39 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Society?" She backs up even more, seeing the hound's attention on her, about 3 feet behind Ali now.
    [ 2016.03.15 00:37:59 ] Aria Jenneth > Velarra got Meo for me to ... keep me company. And give me someone I can always trust.
    [ 2016.03.15 00:38:19 ] Aria Jenneth > ... That last will be a ... little touch and go until his training is really finished, though.
    [ 2016.03.15 00:39:09 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote is entirely unconvinced by that answer with a bunch of names she doesn't know and who keeps a Slaver Hound for company?
    [ 2016.03.15 00:39:14 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote clenches the knife harder.
    [ 2016.03.15 00:39:46 ] Aria Jenneth > ... Um. Ali? Do you ... understand what is going on?
    [ 2016.03.15 00:40:17 ] Aria Jenneth > This isn't the first time there's been ... a change like this. Is the Directrix all right?
    [ 2016.03.15 00:40:23 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I think she's here to arrest me Ali."
    [ 2016.03.15 00:40:55 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I do." Ali turns to Luna. "We're both pilots. I fly with Lady Newelle for House Sarum." And Ali shakes her head. "Aria isn't going to do anything to you."
    [ 2016.03.15 00:41:07 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Oh the nice Holder"
    [ 2016.03.15 00:41:17 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Does Aria fly for a nice Holder too?"
    [ 2016.03.15 00:42:02 ] Aria Jenneth > ... sort of. I fly for ... a very kind and wise person. But she doesn't hold noble rank.
    [ 2016.03.15 00:42:48 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Oh. Like one of the Harafi?" She looks at Ali.
    [ 2016.03.15 00:42:53 ] Aria Jenneth > *she sits down, cross-legged, right where she's at* [Sit. Lie down.] *Meogoleh does as bid*
    [ 2016.03.15 00:43:37 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I don't know what that means, but I know her boss is a great woman. I fly with her too, sometimes. You would like her."
    [ 2016.03.15 00:44:16 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote relaxes and lowers her knife. "Oh." she looks pleased.
    [ 2016.03.15 00:46:57 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Umm" she looks abashed.
    [ 2016.03.15 00:47:10 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Sorry, i thought you were here to take me in with my parents..'
    [ 2016.03.15 00:47:21 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Alqamar is waiting on a decision from a--yes, that."
    [ 2016.03.15 00:48:08 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Daddy hired a good lawyer. But .. the Holder hired the most expensive one." she says unhappily. She is holding the knife in one hand, dangling by her side.
    [ 2016.03.15 00:48:22 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "And his Liege is deciding..
    [ 2016.03.15 00:48:34 ] Aria Jenneth > ... your parents? ... ah....
    [ 2016.03.15 00:49:20 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote sends a flash message to Aria's implants. [Play along. The Directrix is playing a role.]
    [ 2016.03.15 00:49:47 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote looks at Ali, then Aria "Do you like to dance?"
    [ 2016.03.15 00:50:30 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I have sometimes."
    [ 2016.03.15 00:50:52 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Wind dancing.. you just spin and enjoy the music and where it takes you."
    [ 2016.03.15 00:52:28 ] Alizabeth Vea > "If you want to play, I can dance some. But, after I dance, you have to promise to answer me a question."
    [ 2016.03.15 00:52:47 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says guilelessly "Sure"
    [ 2016.03.15 00:53:44 ] Aria Jenneth > ... *listens quietly, looking from one to the other*
    [ 2016.03.15 00:54:02 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote takes the knife back. "Alright, I'll take that back now. Before you accidentally hurt someone."
    [ 2016.03.15 00:54:25 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote looks at Aria "You can spin too"
    [ 2016.03.15 00:54:56 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I think you should let Aria focus on her pet?" Ali looks to Aria to check on that.
    [ 2016.03.15 00:55:56 ] Aria Jenneth > ... I think I'll ... just watch for now. ... Will you be okay if Meogoleh goes and does something else? *with the knife out of play, the slaver hound is looking increasingly bored*
    [ 2016.03.15 00:56:49 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Alright". She sits back down crosslegged and positions herself to play her Salamiyyah.
    [ 2016.03.15 00:57:24 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote sheathes the knife and rolls her shoulders, getting ready to dance. If she can remember."
    [ 2016.03.15 00:57:37 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Whenever you're ready."
    [ 2016.03.15 00:58:58 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote begins to play. (( https://youtu.be/yEdCXRGJuM8?t=8 ))
    [ 2016.03.15 01:00:20 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote loses herself in the music as she plays.
    [ 2016.03.15 01:00:50 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote starts to twirl slowly. She's only really seen Z do this twice and does her best to imitate the flow, but she's clearly a novice.
    [ 2016.03.15 01:01:26 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote looks up and smiles, her lips on the edge of the instrument, not ceasing her music to comment.
    [ 2016.03.15 01:03:27 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote does keep an eye on the slaver. It's not so much that Ali doesn't trust Aria to keep her pet in line as that Luna is not herself and fear can attract predators.
    [ 2016.03.15 01:03:40 ] Aria Jenneth > *listens quietly. She does murmur something to Meo, who goes scooting off, presumably in search of the missing toy, however*
    [ 2016.03.15 01:05:19 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote realizes that she is in the absolute long clothing for this, in her black leather uniform with pencil skirt, but she goes through the motions, more for Alqamar than anything.
    [ 2016.03.15 01:06:51 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote continues to play, a little faster, she quirks a girlish looking smile at Ali.
    [ 2016.03.15 01:08:09 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote meeps and spins faster. Thankfully, she's not wearing heels, so she doesn't trip.
    [ 2016.03.15 01:11:34 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote plays for a bit more then lays her instrument down. "Really works stuff out huh?"
    [ 2016.03.15 01:12:34 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote nods and sits down. "Where did you learn to play?" She's hiding some melancholy, almost totally.
    [ 2016.03.15 01:12:55 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Mother taught me. I'd play in Daddy's shop."
    [ 2016.03.15 01:13:55 ] Alizabeth Vea > "You play very well. I liked it."
    [ 2016.03.15 01:14:12 ] Aria Jenneth > *nodnods silent agreement*
    [ 2016.03.15 01:14:40 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says bashfully "thanks."
    [ 2016.03.15 01:15:32 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Is that your question, Ali?"
    [ 2016.03.15 01:15:42 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Alqamar, I have a . . . a kind of a strange question." She pauses a moment. "Do you know what um, what happened after you . . . they made their decision?"
    [ 2016.03.15 01:15:58 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "No....? They haven't made it yet"
    [ 2016.03.15 01:17:16 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote stands. "I'm sorry I can't change anything." she turns to leave.
    [ 2016.03.15 01:18:00 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Don't go. I'll be here til the dawn." She begins to look sad again. "I don't want to be alone."
    [ 2016.03.15 01:18:00 ] Aria Jenneth > ... Ali? When ... you have an opportunity ...
    [ 2016.03.15 01:18:24 ] Aria Jenneth > ... an explanation ... would be really, really helpful?
    [ 2016.03.15 01:20:03 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote turns back. "Alright. I'll stay with you." She wipes her eyes. Then Ali turns to Aria. "Can I tell you tomorrow? I've taken all the steps necessary to secure the Society."
    [ 2016.03.15 01:23:08 ] Aria Jenneth > .... *does not look as though she finds the implication of a potential security breach especially reassuring*
    [ 2016.03.15 01:24:56 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Sometimes to really learn about someone, you need to live their life, right?"
    [ 2016.03.15 01:28:09 ] Aria Jenneth > *quietly* Well ... I don't disagree with that ...
    [ 2016.03.15 01:28:34 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Neither did the Directrix."
    [ 2016.03.15 01:28:37 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote looks confused. "Sit with me Ali"
    [ 2016.03.15 01:29:02 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote nods and goes back to sit with Luna.
    [ 2016.03.15 01:31:34 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote moves close. She leans her head against Ali's shoulder, looking at the fire burning in the fire circle by the pond.
    [ 2016.03.15 01:31:57 ] Aria Jenneth > *falls silent. She seems to just be enjoying the garden*
    [ 2016.03.15 01:35:30 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote wraps an arm around Luna and looks to Aria. "What will you do?"
    [ 2016.03.15 01:35:37 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote watches quietly as the sparks fly from the fire up to the stars.
    [ 2016.03.15 01:37:20 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > (( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iz7wtTO7roQ ))
    [ 2016.03.15 01:38:07 ] Alizabeth Vea > "If they . . . you know?"
    [ 2016.03.15 01:38:38 ] Aria Jenneth > ... If they ...?
    [ 2016.03.15 01:39:16 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote asks Luna.
    [ 2016.03.15 01:39:36 ] Aria Jenneth > *just listens, then*
    [ 2016.03.15 01:39:51 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says softly "I'll... try to be brave and go. It'd be worse for them if I don't. We go... together."
    [ 2016.03.15 01:40:38 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote nods.
    [ 2016.03.15 01:40:53 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "it's not fair" she sniffles "But I'll go"
    [ 2016.03.15 01:42:11 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I guess that's all you can do."
    [ 2016.03.15 01:43:10 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote digs her head harder on Ali's shoulder.
    [ 2016.03.15 01:44:23 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Is there anything you would want? Something to eat, drink? No bugs."
    [ 2016.03.15 01:44:40 ] Aria Jenneth > *a short distance away, there is an abrupt, rustling crash, and a noisy "SQUEEEKAH!"*
    [ 2016.03.15 01:45:04 ] Aria Jenneth > [MEOGOLEH! SOFT MOUTH!]
    [ 2016.03.15 01:45:06 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote snerks.
    [ 2016.03.15 01:45:25 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote startles, she stands unless Ali is holding her too tightly, at which point she just freezes.
    [ 2016.03.15 01:45:32 ] Aria Jenneth > *more quietly: "squeekah. squeekahsqueekah."
    [ 2016.03.15 01:45:49 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote just holds onto Luna. "It's okay."
    [ 2016.03.15 01:46:14 ] Aria Jenneth > [Good.] ... I'm sorry-- he's just caught his toy.
    [ 2016.03.15 01:46:28 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote relaxes. She says only "Oh"
    [ 2016.03.15 01:47:35 ] Aria Jenneth > *the squeaky noises continue in the background, where presumably the hound is "softly" chewing on his vict-- er, toy*
    [ 2016.03.15 01:48:43 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > 'I'd.. like something sweet for dessert." She pauses "a Kunafe Nabulsia, it's sweet and gooey"
    [ 2016.03.15 01:50:49 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I don't know what that is, but I'll order it." she smirks. "Part of being fantastically wealthly."
    [ 2016.03.15 01:51:17 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote giggles softly.
    [ 2016.03.15 01:53:21 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "That's great. I wish I was a pilot.'
    [ 2016.03.15 01:53:41 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote pulls out her dataslate. "You're going to have to walk me through this order. God knows I know nothing about the, um, Kunafe Nabulsia."
    [ 2016.03.15 01:54:33 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Yep! it's a dessert, goat cheese, pastry and honey"
    [ 2016.03.15 01:55:01 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Those sound like three things that should not be mixed. How about starcakes? Have you ever had one?"
    [ 2016.03.15 01:56:13 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Starcakes?" she shakes her head.
    [ 2016.03.15 01:56:27 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote shakes her head "no" to be exact.
    [ 2016.03.15 01:57:06 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Well, it's good. I promise. If not, you can try the goat cheese." she grins and orders the starcakes.
    [ 2016.03.15 02:00:28 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Sure"
    [ 2016.03.15 02:00:57 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote orders the starcakes and makes sure that there's going to be a Nk-Kunni delivery man.
    [ 2016.03.15 02:04:05 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote leans her head back on Ali's shoulder while they wait.
    [ 2016.03.15 02:05:25 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote glances at Aria and her.. hound.
    [ 2016.03.15 02:05:35 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote sighs and strokes Luna's hair. "So, looks like I picked the right time to take a vacation. Go to Mishi, meet a cute girl."
    [ 2016.03.15 02:06:19 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote giggles.
    [ 2016.03.15 02:07:57 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I wish I'd come earlier, when you were not so . . . preoccupied."
    [ 2016.03.15 02:09:00 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I think God knew I needed comfort." she says softly, burying her head into Ali's shoulder.
    [ 2016.03.15 02:11:00 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote kisses Alqamar's forhead. "I'm glad to be here for you, then."
    [ 2016.03.15 02:11:50 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote remains silent, looking alternately at the fire, then the slaver hound. Her expression is a mix of worry and.. relaxing.
    [ 2016.03.15 02:12:38 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Don't worry. The only way that slaver is getting to you is if I am dead. And I have a lot of combat implants."
    [ 2016.03.15 02:14:10 ] Aria Jenneth > .... *is watching Luna a little sadly as Meo pads back over. He bares down a little on the ball in his jaws; it squeeeeekaahs*
    [ 2016.03.15 02:14:46 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote relaxes some more. She is looking drowsy.
    [ 2016.03.15 02:15:16 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Sleepy, hun?"
    [ 2016.03.15 02:15:41 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote doesn't respond. She's fallen asleep.
    [ 2016.03.15 02:16:24 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote looks at the fire and stares all through the night.
    [ 2016.03.15 02:16:27 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > ***FADE TO BLACK****

    Lunarisse's Sanctum

    A small but lush space. A White Arbor stands at the entrance with a rambling climbing Blush Pink Colored Rose Bush entwined along its arch. At the base of the arbor are the Yellow blooms of the Forsythia bush. Should you enter under the arch, you entered into an small enclosed garden surrounded by walls on four sides. A path of Grey Stepping Stones leads through economy sized beds of Vegetables and Tubers and culinary herbs that ring the walls. At the end of the beds are small trelleses to allow for Grape Vines to wind and grow. The center of the garden is a bed of brightly colored flowers for cuttings surrounding a Statute of Empress Jamyl I. Someone has been weaving a crown of roses that has been placed on the statue. At two difference places in the garden are marble benches for rest, contemplation and quiet talks. At the end of the garden is a cottage with Lunarisse's private library of antique books and a bedroom.

    [ 2016.03.16 00:44:36 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote is seated on open porch to the cottage in her rocking chair. A knit quilt is across her lap and she is reading. Quark is laying by her side, tail carefully away from the treads of the rocker.
    [ 2016.03.16 00:44:37 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote waits respectfully by the door. She's in a black silk yukata with no pattern.
    [ 2016.03.16 00:45:01 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Come in" she calls at the door chime allowng Ali to the garden and the path.
    [ 2016.03.16 00:45:36 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote makes her way over and bows in the Caldari fashion. Her hair is pulled back.
    [ 2016.03.16 00:46:01 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Hello Ali." She indicates to a swing bench on the porch. "have a seat?"
    [ 2016.03.16 00:46:15 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote does so, wordlessly.
    [ 2016.03.16 00:46:52 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I.." she trails off "i think that's probably the worst of it for me." she pauses "I remember her but.. i am not her anymore." She looks at Ali.
    [ 2016.03.16 00:47:01 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Thank you...."
    [ 2016.03.16 00:47:30 ] Alizabeth Vea > "For what?"
    [ 2016.03.16 00:48:09 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > 'For trusting me." She pauses "And.. apparently being there for her." She blinks. "I am not sure if it was you or someone else.. but someone was there for her that night."
    [ 2016.03.16 00:48:26 ] Alizabeth Vea > "It was me."
    [ 2016.03.16 00:48:42 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote is extremely reserved.
    [ 2016.03.16 00:49:00 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says "memories are a curious thing. I.. could swear that she really did meet someone that night... when it happened."
    [ 2016.03.16 00:49:16 ] Alizabeth Vea > "What happened to her . . . after?"
    [ 2016.03.16 00:50:47 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Her father was convicted. For allegedly falsifying loan application papers. Of course, it was just an angry and unscrupulous noble. He.. according to what she remembered.. just was in debt."
    [ 2016.03.16 00:51:18 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote doesn't make any response, verbal or physical.
    [ 2016.03.16 00:51:20 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "After being taken into custody. she and her family were separated, sold on the public slave markets and taken into Amarrian holder possession. She never saw or heard from any of them again.
    [ 2016.03.16 00:51:38 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "While existing as a slave her work and role over the years varied from assistant to the estate gardener, as a member of the Holders' breeders charged with producing new slaves, through to later on, estate custodial service"
    [ 2016.03.16 00:52:09 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Curiously.. she remained a slave longer than was warranted. I think... the buyer didn't care about the corrective or theological reasons.. for slavery"
    [ 2016.03.16 00:52:51 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "At age of 33, following a 3rd failure to carry a child to term she was sold off .... to non-Amarr. Luckily for her the buyer was one that engaged.. rescues of a sort."
    [ 2016.03.16 00:53:07 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "On intake and medical review she was found to have developed a moderately obscure if known Ni-Kunni health condition that could have been averted if the holder had her treated early."
    [ 2016.03.16 00:53:09 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote nods once.
    [ 2016.03.16 00:53:25 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "But.. he was cheap. He didn't treat her badly.. but he didn't treat her well either."
    [ 2016.03.16 00:53:56 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Where is she burried?"
    [ 2016.03.16 00:54:00 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > " By the time she was purchased, her condition had become serious. Distinct levels of lethargy impaired her normally high energy levels with frequent periods of despondency and generalized malaise."
    [ 2016.03.16 00:54:19 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says softly "she lived for five more years."
    [ 2016.03.16 00:54:57 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I.. do not know where she was buried. Only that... at the end of her life.."
    [ 2016.03.16 00:55:29 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "she only wished that someone with the potential to 'make things right' could know her story, to walk in her feet."
    [ 2016.03.16 00:55:55 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "So, on her deathbed, she was scanned into a Memorial Clone.. which.. was shared with me...
    [ 2016.03.16 00:56:09 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote nods. A single tear runs down her right cheek.
    [ 2016.03.16 00:56:16 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Her memories and experiences." she trails off and looks at Ali "I could ask where she is buried"
    [ 2016.03.16 00:58:00 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I would like to know where. I would like to know who treated her injustly; who this noble was; who her holder was."
    [ 2016.03.16 00:58:57 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods. "You'll be pleased to know he is dead. After the Elder invasion when the first fighting began on the Matari/Empire border, he was killed in action." She looks at Ali. "She shed no tears at the news."
    [ 2016.03.16 00:59:37 ] Alizabeth Vea > "He's lucky he's dead."
    [ 2016.03.16 00:59:51 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote quirks a thin smile. "I agree"
    [ 2016.03.16 01:00:16 ] Alizabeth Vea > "The holder that made her a breeder slave?"
    [ 2016.03.16 01:00:46 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods. "His holding was one of the ones invaded when they 'came for their people.'"
    [ 2016.03.16 01:01:04 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Both he and the lender... died."
    [ 2016.03.16 01:02:08 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote nods once.
    [ 2016.03.16 01:02:19 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote rubs the bridge of her nose. "I.. need to talk to Lieutenant Kerner.... all the Nauplius's in the world suck.. the oxygen and attention."
    [ 2016.03.16 01:02:35 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "But,.. there are more like the ones that mistreated her and failed in their duties as a Holder"
    [ 2016.03.16 01:03:05 ] Alizabeth Vea > "The whole thing is corrupt. All of it."
    [ 2016.03.16 01:03:12 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "There are many that do it properly. But,.," she sighs. "I think the Lieutenant might know an organization or two for reform."
    [ 2016.03.16 01:04:00 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Reform! Reform?"
    [ 2016.03.16 01:04:10 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods. "I am not sure.. if the person who asked me to do this.. knew I had experience arresting heretics and .. holders who went so overly over theirduties they caught notice (this is rare)..." she pauses "But.. it didn't shock me." she says sadly
    [ 2016.03.16 01:04:21 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I know something has to be done."
    [ 2016.03.16 01:04:48 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Getting rid of slavery would be a start."
    [ 2016.03.16 01:04:59 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says dryly "That's not likely to happen."
    [ 2016.03.16 01:05:22 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote rubs the bridge of her nose. "Do you understand why slavery us used for criminals in the empire?"
    [ 2016.03.16 01:05:48 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Don't."
    [ 2016.03.16 01:06:20 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods. "What happened to her was a malpractice." she looks upset. "Last night was the first night I thought I slept and slept in."
    [ 2016.03.16 01:06:34 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "In nearly two weeks"
    [ 2016.03.16 01:06:57 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I didn't sleep."
    [ 2016.03.16 01:07:12 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods wordlessly. She sighs.
    [ 2016.03.16 01:07:52 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I.. didn't expect that last relapse.. at all. The garden is so.. strong with sights and sounds and senses.." she looks at Ali "I am sorry to subject you to that"
    [ 2016.03.16 01:09:22 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote stands. "I met a nice girl, musical and sweet. She had her whole life ahead of her and then the Amarr enslaved her."
    [ 2016.03.16 01:10:14 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote sighs. "For what.. the allegations were. it should have only been 1-4 years." she looks upset. "But the persons involved used the system to create more long-term slaves.. not justice"
    [ 2016.03.16 01:11:13 ] Alizabeth Vea > "You don't have to convince me it was wrong."
    [ 2016.03.16 01:12:51 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods.
    [ 2016.03.16 01:13:31 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote rubs her eyes. She is a mix of emotional and former law enforcement. Her mood switches from outrage to dry analysis of the crime and what went wrong.
    [ 2016.03.16 01:13:56 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "If you need a break, I understand, Ali"
    [ 2016.03.16 01:14:14 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "it's.. taken me two weeks of being useless.. to get .. functional"
    [ 2016.03.16 01:15:10 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I don't . . . know if . . . I need a drink. Please mail me where she's burried."
    [ 2016.03.16 01:15:43 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I will." she looks at Ali "I'd like to go there with you if you would permit me to."
    [ 2016.03.16 01:16:58 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote nods once.
    [ 2016.03.16 01:18:30 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "And by a break,, i mean take.. some time off from your duties."
    [ 2016.03.16 01:18:33 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I am.. myself now."
    [ 2016.03.16 01:18:51 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Go somewhere. Meditate, pray, play. Whatever helps sort you."
    [ 2016.03.16 01:19:14 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I.. have been gardening" she looks at her garden which does have a freshly weeded and worked look."
    [ 2016.03.16 01:20:45 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote bows in the Caldari fashion. "I don't . . . know if I will come back. I don't . . . know if . . . Ms. Aspenstar . . . this whole thing is wrong."
    [ 2016.03.16 01:21:25 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I pray you will. The Cluster is filled with injustice.. not just the Empire. We... do what we can here." she says softly.
    [ 2016.03.16 01:21:55 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "And I need you." She looks barely restrained, but her face is choking up.
    [ 2016.03.16 01:22:36 ] Alizabeth Vea > "There are other combat pilots."
    [ 2016.03.16 01:23:24 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Not with your skill set, and experience." She rises. "be safe pilot."
    [ 2016.03.16 01:23:52 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Uaaka." she bows again and leaves before she cries completely.
    [ 2016.03.16 01:24:44 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote watches Ali goes. She sighs, then sits back in her rocking chair, rocking.

    Cafe Marlinea - Mehatoor - 24th IC Station

    The Cafe is on the main boulevard of the capsuleer community district in the 24th Imperial Crusade station in the Mehatoor system. The front of the cafe is furnished in a toned down Gallentean fashion. The small pavement stones have been implanted in front of the cafe with holodisplays to give the appearance of an outside countryside cafe.The scents from the cafe linger on the outside, fresh coffee mixed with Gallentean and Amarrian pastries. The establishment mixes the finer points of Gallente and Amarr culture immaculately together. There are four tables in front of the cafe, set with dayshades and two chairs each.Inside of the cafe is a similar mix of gallente and amarr culture and architecture. The inside houses a one corner set with two leather couches and a table between them. the sales counter is in the middle of the cafe. One can peek over the counter through the small window to the kitchen and see the bakers busy at work. There are five tables set with four seats each in the main area and on the sides two smaller seated tables.A constant flow of customers creates a lively atmosphere. The music on the background is mainly Gallente swing style music.

    [ 2016.03.18 00:58:28 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote is seated, working on her datapad. She is dressed in a casual white dress and sensible white shoes (almost sneakers!)
    [ 2016.03.18 00:58:53 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote sips from a cup of coffee. A half eaten croissant is at her table.
    [ 2016.03.18 00:59:42 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote is not yet present, but likely will be shortly.
    [ 2016.03.18 00:59:59 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote is in no rush.
    [ 2016.03.18 01:03:16 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote pads in quietly. Her hair's a bit damp, still, either from pod or cloning bay.
    [ 2016.03.18 01:03:40 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote smiles "Hello, Aria. Have a seat." Decidedly informal, but then no one else is here.
    [ 2016.03.18 01:06:33 ] Aria Jenneth > ... thank you, Directrix. Um. ... *she makes her way over. She's dressed as she usually is-- with the addition of a broad, dark sash tied around her waist. Through this is stuck a sheathed dagger about the length of the small woman's forearm*
    [ 2016.03.18 01:07:55 ] Aria Jenneth > ... I wanted to give you this. Thal gave it to me, here, a couple days ago.
    [ 2016.03.18 01:08:34 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Oh?" she looks at Aria.
    [ 2016.03.18 01:09:14 ] Aria Jenneth > *she fishes the blade out, sheath and all. She sits, then passes it across the table* ... I don't really think I should accept it ... until I also have formally accepted your offer, though.
    [ 2016.03.18 01:10:03 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Oh." She smiles. "So he finished? Does this include Ms. Runekin's contribution?"
    [ 2016.03.18 01:11:11 ] Aria Jenneth > I gather it does. I've done only rudimentary programming, though. *both blade and sheath are about the same glossy black as Aria's occasionally-troublesome "bracelet"*
    [ 2016.03.18 01:12:49 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote smiles. "Thank you. I.. would like to retain it until you have decided."
    [ 2016.03.18 01:13:15 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "How.. is your training going with the Templar Vadam? Although i am curious as to which discipline he is focusing on..."
    [ 2016.03.18 01:13:56 ] Aria Jenneth > ... well ... *she grimaces, and looks at the table a little sheepishly*
    [ 2016.03.18 01:14:40 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote tilts her head slightly.
    [ 2016.03.18 01:14:55 ] Aria Jenneth > ... I'm told he often gets injured, while training people.
    [ 2016.03.18 01:15:25 ] Aria Jenneth > ... he ... held back. I sort of ... um. Didn't.
    [ 2016.03.18 01:17:04 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote straightens and raises an eyebrow. "certainly.. a little more intense than I am used to with martial arts training... it sounds like."
    [ 2016.03.18 01:17:26 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "What happened?"
    [ 2016.03.18 01:18:08 ] Aria Jenneth > ... well ... um. I did keep a log-- it was my data-oriented clone.
    [ 2016.03.18 01:18:15 ] Aria Jenneth > If you wish, I can ... send it.
    [ 2016.03.18 01:18:45 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Sure." She thinks this will be interesting. She remembers martial arts training as a paladin, forms, stances, and the like.
    [ 2016.03.18 01:19:21 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Is he doing weapons work or just the physycal?"
    [ 2016.03.18 01:20:33 ] Aria Jenneth > ... um. Definitely weapons work. Ah. Er. Here?
    [ 2016.03.18 01:23:10 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote glaze over as she reviews it.
    [ 2016.03.18 01:28:44 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote eyes snap to focus. Her face tightens and she does not look happy. At all. "Good God, I asked him to provide martial arts training, not engage in a full bore MMA brawl like one of the gladiator pits of Athra"
    [ 2016.03.18 01:29:13 ] Aria Jenneth > ....
    [ 2016.03.18 01:30:03 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote stares at Aria. "He asked for it. But..." she looks at Aria appraisingly. She knew of her past, but not quite how deadly she could be in hand to hand, only in space. She exhales and flips a blonde lock back over her face in annoynace.
    [ 2016.03.18 01:31:19 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Well. I am sorry that didn't go well. Obviously DUSTers are different than my own training." She looks like she is about to call an end to the whole exercise.
    [ 2016.03.18 01:31:40 ] Aria Jenneth > ... I'm ... not sure it went badly, Directrix.
    [ 2016.03.18 01:31:58 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says tightly "Explain."
    [ 2016.03.18 01:32:00 ] Aria Jenneth > *quietly* Neither Thal nor I knew ... what I might be capable of. I mean, I had an idea, but ...
    [ 2016.03.18 01:33:29 ] Aria Jenneth > ... not a very solid one. It's not like I maintain a mental catalog of katas or anything. ... though I probably could make my way through an exercise from memory pretty easily.
    [ 2016.03.18 01:33:52 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote simply goes "mMm."
    [ 2016.03.18 01:34:17 ] Aria Jenneth > Those skills have killed people. Other monks. One a master. ... so ... I knew I wasn't a novice.
    [ 2016.03.18 01:35:06 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I.. gathered that much from your sojoirn meditation. But.. i wanted to him to teach you something new in a structure way."
    [ 2016.03.18 01:35:17 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > *structured*
    [ 2016.03.18 01:35:34 ] Aria Jenneth > ... maybe we can get there. But I get the impression most of his experience is ... well.
    [ 2016.03.18 01:35:38 ] Aria Jenneth > Experience.
    [ 2016.03.18 01:36:05 ] Aria Jenneth > He may use a sword, but ... I don't think combat is about a spiritual journey for Thal, anymore. If it ever was.
    [ 2016.03.18 01:36:33 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "of course, but he still trains people. or.. he used to."
    [ 2016.03.18 01:36:52 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I once almost had him train the entire Society, but... well.. things happened and people were busy."
    [ 2016.03.18 01:37:02 ] Aria Jenneth > ... *nods* Maybe we can come to that. He did need to know what I could do. ... I don't really know what he might have planned for the next lesson.
    [ 2016.03.18 01:37:18 ] Aria Jenneth > Also ... there's another consideration.
    [ 2016.03.18 01:37:57 ] Aria Jenneth > If that had been a real match, he'd have killed me. He wasn't ... using a combat clone.
    [ 2016.03.18 01:38:03 ] Aria Jenneth > ... but I'd still have lost.
    [ 2016.03.18 01:38:15 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Good. I would hope not.. that he'd not use a combat clone."
    [ 2016.03.18 01:39:13 ] Aria Jenneth > If I'm supposed to be at your side ... protecting you ... I can't leave things like that. Whether it helps me grow spiritually or not, I need to get stronger.
    [ 2016.03.18 01:39:33 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote purses her lips. But she does not disagree.
    [ 2016.03.18 01:39:40 ] Aria Jenneth > ... I want to be able to beat him.
    [ 2016.03.18 01:40:24 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods slightly. "Fair enough.. but let's.. make sure this is training and not.... " she grimaces "A bloody, uncivilized and unrestrained brawl"
    [ 2016.03.18 01:42:18 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Don't, get me wrong..
    [ 2016.03.18 01:42:21 ] Aria Jenneth > I don't disagree, Directrix. But ... with greatest respect ... being effective in a bloody, uncivilized, and unrestrained brawl is the difference between a monk who's decent at formal sparring and a bodyguard.
    [ 2016.03.18 01:42:40 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > there are times that's needed. But.. to get there first you need the discipline to know when to let go.
    [ 2016.03.18 01:43:05 ] Aria Jenneth > ... *nods solemnly*
    [ 2016.03.18 01:43:35 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote looks calmer now. She begins to flush "And.. to be an effective bodyguard you also need to be in the loop/"
    [ 2016.03.18 01:44:11 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "And I have been negligent there." She sighs unhappily. "But.. in my defense, weak as it may be.. i didn't expect the side effects to be.. so strong..." she trails off.
    [ 2016.03.18 01:44:24 ] Aria Jenneth > ... it would ... be helpful, Directrix. ... I thought you might wish to wait until I was ... sworn to your service.
    [ 2016.03.18 01:44:44 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "No.. now is a good time. I .. think I am mostly over it now."
    [ 2016.03.18 01:45:36 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote sips her coffee collecting here thoughts. "Honestly, I am not sure where to begin." She looks at Aria "And this doesn't go in the journal you have... please?"
    [ 2016.03.18 01:46:27 ] Aria Jenneth > ... okay.
    [ 2016.03.18 01:47:21 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote bites her lip, then she straightens. "You may recall.. a large number of the refugees we rescued.. seemed.. extremely hopeless. While I placed about 40 percent with holders.. well..."
    [ 2016.03.18 01:47:26 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "There's the other sixty person..."
    [ 2016.03.18 01:47:30 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > percent
    [ 2016.03.18 01:48:20 ] Aria Jenneth > ... *nods*
    [ 2016.03.18 01:50:20 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Well.. it exceeded even the most.. resourceful Amarr Holders I know. Even Lord Pitoojee who has extensive facilities for the rehab of abused slaves, not just Amarr, but from various places"
    [ 2016.03.18 01:51:39 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I.. had to make a deal with someone to take them in.. and to guarantee their care, I agreed to a .. 'boon' of their choice as long as it did not break any of the Empire's laws."
    [ 2016.03.18 01:52:21 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote is inclined to gloss over details but if Aria asks questions will likely provide more information.
    [ 2016.03.18 01:52:46 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote sips her coffee "About 2 months after they took in the refugees, they called in the debt."
    [ 2016.03.18 01:52:50 ] Aria Jenneth > *for the present, does not ask*
    [ 2016.03.18 01:53:16 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says lightly "So I went on an unusual vacation..."
    [ 2016.03.18 01:53:33 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "They had.. something called a Memorial Clone."
    [ 2016.03.18 01:53:38 ] Aria Jenneth > *one eyebrow hikes up a centimeter higher*
    [ 2016.03.18 01:53:47 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote looks at Aria to see if that terminology has any meaning to her.
    [ 2016.03.18 01:54:46 ] Aria Jenneth > *it doesn't seem to, but pieces are visibly falling into place*
    [ 2016.03.18 01:55:04 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "It is a clone that has the life memories of another person, from birth to death."
    [ 2016.03.18 01:55:43 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "They.. wanted me.. to inhabit it for a week. Experience her life. be.. her... and also walk through their facility and city and village and mix with those they rescued, including our refugees..."
    [ 2016.03.18 01:56:35 ] Aria Jenneth > *frowns just a little*
    [ 2016.03.18 01:57:25 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "She was a Ni-Kunni slave." She grimaces "One who was enslaved under unlawful circumstances, whose Holder disregarded his responsibilities.." She adds "Mind you.. nothing bizarrely awful like Nauplius.. just.. benign neglect, shirking of -c-
    [ 2016.03.18 01:58:11 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > responsibilities, banal corruption, and taking advantage of a lack of oversight to inflate sentences and create life long-long slaves..." she grits her teeth.
    [ 2016.03.18 01:58:51 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "After she was rescued.. she had only five years to live.. due to his neglect of what could have been a treatavble medical condition"
    [ 2016.03.18 01:59:19 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "She.. asked that her life.. mean something. That her memories, her experiences be shared -c-

    [ 2016.03.18 02:00:12 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "A.. major side effect.. apparently.. is when I returned to my clone,..I had trouble seperating myself from her.."
    [ 2016.03.18 02:00:41 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Until my mind.. re-ordered her memories.. with my self..." She looks at aria "Somethings triggered it worse than others."
    [ 2016.03.18 02:00:56 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "And.. there may be aspects of my life.. that rendered me more susceptible."
    [ 2016.03.18 02:01:12 ] Aria Jenneth > ... is this ... a thing you should talk about in past tense, Directrix?
    [ 2016.03.18 02:02:09 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I. think so. It was supposed to possible effect me for 48-96 hours.."
    [ 2016.03.18 02:02:25 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I think.. I am beyon d that now."
    [ 2016.03.18 02:02:57 ] Aria Jenneth > *quietly* Memories ... to last a lifetime, though?
    [ 2016.03.18 02:04:02 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods.

    [ 2016.03.18 02:09:01 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says wryly "So that's.. the condensed version."

    [ 2016.03.18 02:10:05 ] Aria Jenneth > ... a little bit of an issue. Especially since ... there are places where abuse of position is in the beholder's eye.
    [ 2016.03.18 02:10:33 ] Aria Jenneth > ... that said, I do not ... disagree with your feelings.
    [ 2016.03.18 02:10:33 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I know" she says softly.
    [ 2016.03.18 02:10:52 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "This.. may be more of a personal project. But.. where it is clear, I may bring the Society into it." She sighs.
    [ 2016.03.18 02:11:48 ] Aria Jenneth > Even ... there ... if you do so, it might bring scrutiny that could ... be kind of a problem for other ... kinds of work.
    [ 2016.03.18 02:12:54 ] Aria Jenneth > Either way ... it's you I owe loyalty to. Formally or not.
    [ 2016.03.18 02:13:13 ] Aria Jenneth > I won't ... write about this. And ... if you decide to enlist me in personal projects ...

    [ 2016.03.18 02:20:53 ] Aria Jenneth > ... not ... presently, Directrix. ... actually quite a lot. But ... I do ... trust you. And I'm pretty sure I'll learn the answers in time.
    [ 2016.03.18 02:21:33 ] Aria Jenneth > ... well-- one. The people you made this deal with ... the implications of their "favor" are strongly anti-slavery.
    [ 2016.03.18 02:22:19 ] Aria Jenneth > Were ... their purposes as straightforward ... as that? Or is this someone who'd have ... other motives.
    [ 2016.03.18 02:22:24 ] Aria Jenneth > ?
    [ 2016.03.18 02:22:42 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I.. am not sure. But I will suspect the former."
    [ 2016.03.18 02:23:02 ] Aria Jenneth > ... I'm guessing ... you know who they are.
    [ 2016.03.18 02:23:12 ] Aria Jenneth > And that I'll be ... told if I have need to know.
    [ 2016.03.18 02:23:32 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods. "For now.. I think it is over. They told me so anyway." She adds wryly.
    [ 2016.03.18 02:23:54 ] Aria Jenneth > ... ... only, this should maybe be said.
    [ 2016.03.18 02:24:05 ] Aria Jenneth > Are you sure?
    [ 2016.03.18 02:24:37 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "based on my week.. if what i saw was real." she frowns slightly at the thought it might not have been "Yes"
    [ 2016.03.18 02:24:58 ] Aria Jenneth > If this was an ideological organization, such as the Defiants, that ... implies one thing.
    [ 2016.03.18 02:25:33 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods.
    [ 2016.03.18 02:25:48 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > " Numbers Inc." she says simply.
    [ 2016.03.18 02:26:12 ] Aria Jenneth > If it was something ... less-ideological, though ... *she pauses*
    [ 2016.03.18 02:26:23 ] Aria Jenneth > ... Velarra ...
    [ 2016.03.18 02:26:41 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "She was not involved, actually, to my knowledge. But.. her successor was."
    [ 2016.03.18 02:27:07 ] Aria Jenneth > ... Oh, gods. Um. Directrix? She's an Angel.
    [ 2016.03.18 02:27:12 ] Aria Jenneth > And we have a problem.
    [ 2016.03.18 02:27:16 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says tersely "I know."
    [ 2016.03.18 02:27:24 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Talk about.. a deal with the devil."
    [ 2016.03.18 02:27:53 ] Aria Jenneth > It's possible that she showed you what she did because she has ... sentiments ... in this area. But the Angels are ... slavers without scruple.
    [ 2016.03.18 02:28:05 ] Aria Jenneth > They're the suppliers to a lot of the people you want to go after.
    [ 2016.03.18 02:28:36 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I know. But,,. this one struck as me as being different,."
    [ 2016.03.18 02:28:42 ] Aria Jenneth > ... and they just showed you something to which your reaction was highly predictable, and apt to create scandal if revealed.
    [ 2016.03.18 02:29:08 ] Aria Jenneth > I hope she is, Directrix. But this is potentially blackmail material, even if you never act on it.
    [ 2016.03.18 02:29:34 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote purses her lips. "Well.. we'll cross that bridge when we get it it.. if we ever do." She raises her chin slightly.
    [ 2016.03.18 02:30:12 ] Aria Jenneth > ... *nodnod* It does ... sort of recommend even more caution than might otherwise be called for, though, Directrix.
    [ 2016.03.18 02:31:03 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods slighty.
    [ 2016.03.18 02:31:15 ] Aria Jenneth > If we ... move ... on your convictions, they'll be able to sell ... your identity to any wounded parties.
    [ 2016.03.18 02:31:43 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote tilts her head slightly "I.. doubt it in this case"
    [ 2016.03.18 02:32:19 ] Aria Jenneth > Are you sure? They've basically created an antislavery activist ... whether you actually become one or not. And in this culture, that's a marketable commodity, to the right buyer.
    [ 2016.03.18 02:33:27 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says defensively "I am not anti slavery... I am.. anti breaking the law and scriptures"
    [ 2016.03.18 02:34:07 ] Aria Jenneth > *quietly* If slaves begin disappearing, and the MIO receives your name, Directrix ...
    [ 2016.03.18 02:35:15 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > 'I rest confortable that there is no connection. They know I used to help arrest heretics and corrupt nobles.. albeit" she grimaces "Those without much political clout."
    [ 2016.03.18 02:36:03 ] Aria Jenneth > ... I hope so, Directrix.
    [ 2016.03.18 02:36:40 ] Aria Jenneth > ... I don't really like the way my mind is working right now. But ... I don't think pilots go very far in the Cartel without being ruthless.
    [ 2016.03.18 02:37:07 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods slightly. "I am not without my own... markers and allies."
    [ 2016.03.18 02:37:12 ] Aria Jenneth > And I can think of a lot of ways to turn this situation to ... profitable advantage.
    [ 2016.03.18 02:37:37 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I always told my children.. don't fret over worse case scenarios. Plan and then move ahead."
    [ 2016.03.18 02:39:22 ] Aria Jenneth > ... as you prefer, Directrix.
    [ 2016.03.18 02:39:26 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Now.. if that is all.." she smiles bleakly "I need to finish restocking the market here."
    [ 2016.03.18 02:40:07 ] Aria Jenneth > ... it is. I'm ... sorry to be such a suspicious person.
    [ 2016.03.18 02:40:30 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "No.. don't be. i think that will be useful in a bodyguard" she smirks slightly as she rises.
    [ 2016.03.18 02:40:43 ] Aria Jenneth > ... *nodnod*
    [ 2016.03.18 02:40:44 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Please.. let meknow your decision if you can soon?"
    [ 2016.03.18 02:40:52 ] Aria Jenneth > *rises likewise*
    [ 2016.03.18 02:41:14 ] Aria Jenneth > My ... decision is made, Directrix. I will accept, formally, at a ... time and place of your choosing.
    [ 2016.03.18 02:41:48 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > 'Wonderful." She looks a little cheered by that "Let's try this weekend one evening if our schedules permit and Ms. Runekin is done the blade?"
    [ 2016.03.18 02:42:34 ] Aria Jenneth > ... I don't mind if it's not quite done, Directrix. It'll probably need months of tinkering anyway.
    [ 2016.03.18 02:43:30 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods. "Alright.' she departs.
    [ 2016.03.18 02:44:17 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote sits back down for the moment, and folds her hands. She just sits, for now, lost in thought*

    Re: RP - "The Inner Ni Kunni" (Following Aftermaths Arc)

    Post by Lunarisse Aspenstar on Sun Mar 27, 2016 11:15 am

    OOC BACKGROUND MATERIALS (Credit to Velarra)

    "Luna"

    After 5 years of freedom, "Luna' noted that while her body was gradually failing her, her mind was still sharp and she was under no illusion that with the time she had left, she understood that she was unlikely to ever find her father to forgive him for the choices he made that led the family into slavery, or even apologize for the things she to him when the slavers came to take them all away.

    She only wished that someone with the potential to 'make things right' could know her story, what it really is and was like to be an imperial slave, to walk in her feet.

    An offer was proposed to her – A memorial clone. While the Ni-Kunni was not capsule capable, she could be scanned. Only her memories, her experiences, to an empty clone. To be shared, following her passing, with someone who could then understand and perhaps make a difference to the state/existence of slavory in the Imperial regions.

    The Memorial Clone

    The memorial clone technology was initially developed as an invasive intelligence gathering/reprogramming method involving the application of soft scans and protracted restraint of captured persons by a small section of [redacted] internal security. Unfortunately the technology never matured to a satisfactory level of efficacy when dealing with unwilling subjects. Specific information and details proved difficult to separate from the trivialities of the subjects life experiences particularly when under duress.

    The research and technology was eventually set aside until it was made available for medicinal applications involving consenting persons with an eye to researching its use and potential for a role in controlled, therapeutic settings.

    Role Play Considerations and Experience of Subject.

    The primary superficial experience is much like a standard clone jump, where an infomorph is scanned in one lab and has its consciousness sent to another station or lab in which a waiting clone has the infomorph copied into a vat grown body. However where the traditional clone jump is simply a copy and paste, - a memorial clone is a copy and merge. All be it a merge with a static, absolute copy of the memories and experiences of another individual who went through a very lengthy soft cloning procedure. The state of individuation and consciousness of the soft cloned subject does not transfer.

    The procedure borrows heavily from various advances in skill injection, extraction and several forms of backup redundancy that have become a very controlled science within New Eden over the past few years. Many concerns hover around health and risk factors related to how the mind of the merged memorial clone processes the newly gained memories and experiences of the newly merged source data.

    Merged individuals have been known to experience acutely deep sleep cycles, minor wakeful dream states, reports of having experienced “time travel”, in addition to being witness to “ghosts” or past events “taking place in real time” as one might experience in a heavily medicated delusion or trauma/grief triggered psychotic break. Despite these reports, which tend to feature as early fixtures of newly merged memorial clones, these reports tend to fade in frequency within 48 to 96 hours of initial merge and again after returning to the subject's actual body.

    Current research has shown the value of therapeutic merging in a variety of severe cases revolving around individuals who have been subject to Sansha uplifting, enslavement and later recovery as well as TCMC abuse. Typically the merging functions only as an accessory to a whole-person reconstruction and rehabilitation treatment program. Often in these cases family or loved ones of the subject are involved in the treatment and play a major role in the donation of data-merge content while participating in associated counselling sessions.

    OOC BACKGROUND MATERIALS (Credit to Velarra)

    [OOC] General City Background / Overview / (draft)

    Salvation City, UW9B-F V,
    Tranquillity, Curse
    Population 1,286,334

    The city, found within a recessed valley on the temperate planet of UW9B-F exists isolated from much of the planet's population. A pair of lengthy if modern highways connecting it to the nearby cities several days away by road travel keep it connected to civilization beyond its normally closed borders.

    The community revolves around a triumvirate of primary institutions: Mercy Hospital and rehabilitation facility, the Nova Research and Development centre and the agricultural centre Verdant Prosperity who specialize in the development of agricultural resources for the city. The centre piece around which the community thrives, Mercy Hospital and Rehabilitation Centre, provides a wide array of services which aim to serve the people who live within the photogenically scenic valley.

    The city, and the hospital around which it revolves in contrast with the many other population centres of the planet, has a very particular population demographic. Easily one third of the population have had some of the worst experiences with Imperial slavery imaginable. Those who have not, have been typically evacuated from Blood Raider installations or similar Sani Sabik enclaves.

    These vulnerable and often troubled people who live within the community are served by a vast array of social, health and associated support programs. Each member of the community as a whole, regardless of past history with human trafficking, typically has a team of social service support staff with whom they engage on a variable basis relative to their needs.

    People who live within the community are provided with private personal or family homes and as a rule, relatively high living standards sufficient to meet most needs and common wants. Exceptions to this rule are typically those who are temporarily residing directly within Mercy Hospital, undergoing specialized treatments or similar highly focused care.

    On matters of faith, the community is sensitive to the nature of both the human condition as much as the pasts of its more troubled citizens. For the most part Salvation city exists in a very secular manner. Faith in a multitude of various religions is embraced and accepted. On the other hand, generally unhealthy and inhumane faiths are frowned on, handled on a case by case basis and attended to with acutely focused counselling. Further, while faith is something that is accepted, proselytizing within the community regardless of the faith is generally considered taboo with various laws effectively making it a minor offence.

    The 2/3 rds majority of the population who live and work in Salvation City, who have not been slaves or directly the subject of human atrocities are primarily employees of Numbers Inc or are to some extent associated with the Salvation Angels.

    [OOC} 7 days.


    The following is an idea - a way to give Luna a source of insight into the other side of Imperial slavory, & Salvation City within a 5-7 day visiting period.

    Intake:
    A Ni-Kunni slave once lived in Salvation City.

    Long ago, her family had experienced a run of bad fortune. A combination of debts, (incurred to improve her education, and thus the family's future) had risen beyond surmountable levels due to a shift in planetary economy. This in turn, led to loans taken with less than scrupulous lenders. When all was said and done following her graduation from private schooling at 24, she and her family were separated, sold on the public slave markets and taken into Amarrian holder possession. She never saw or heard from any of them again.

    While existing as a slave her work and role over the years varied from assistant to the estate gardener, as a member of the Holders' breeders charged with producing new slaves, through to later on, estate custodial services.

    At age of 33, following a 3rd failure to carry a child to term she was sold off to the Cartel and picked up by the Salvation City project & Numbers Inc.

    On intake and medical review she was found to have developed a moderately obscure if known Ni-Kunni health condition that could have been averted if the holder had her treated early. By the time she was purchased by Numbers Inc her condition had become serious. Distinct levels of lethargy impaired her normally high energy levels with frequent periods despondency and generalized malaise. Despite this initial state, she was rehabilitated to effectively normal health within Mercy Hospital.

    Living in Salvation City for just over 5 years she left numerous positive marks on the lives of those around her, particularly some of the doctors who diligently attempted to maintain her condition. A condition that was, despite many remarkable efforts made, slowly unravelling.

    For the most part, many of the once-slaves who live within Salvation City, live out their entire lives there. Others have temporary stays as they are understood to be there purely for medical treatments or highly focused rehabilitation. Particularly in cases where there is great potential for these individuals to function in their occupations as highly skilled professionals for their owners within the Curse region.

    Despite the life made possible to those who live in the city, a small minority are offered outright freedom beyond the confines of Salvation City. A package of reintegration, settlement and identity management within most of Secured space. While the majority tend to side toward Republic or Federation resettlement a small number do side with the State and on rare occasions – the Amarr regions.

    The Ni-Kunni would have been a candidate for this program and was made the offer, despite the reality she had at most a year left to her life. After some consideration, she noted that while her body was gradually failing her, her mind was still sharp and she was under no illusion that with the time she had left, she understood that she was unlikely to ever find her father to forgive him for the choices he made that led the family into slavery, or even apologize for the things she to him when the slavers came to take them all away.

    Having been approached by Zaichi with the offer of complete freedom: she replied that she only wished that someone with the potential to 'make things right' could know her story, what it really is and was like to be an imperial slave, to walk in her feet. It was an offhanded colloquial comment, said in passion and extreme frustration but struck a chord none the less.

    After some consideration, Zaichi made a counter offer – A memorial clone. While the Ni-Kunni was not capsule capable, she could be scanned. Only her memories, her experiences, to an empty clone. To be shared, following her passing, with someone who could then understand and perhaps make a difference to the state/existence of slavory in the Imperial regions.
