    RP - Unexpected Parent Hood (Following the Inner Ni Kunni Arc)

    Post by Lunarisse Aspenstar on Sun Mar 27, 2016 11:20 am

    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.

    [ 2016.03.18 23:39:26 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote enters. She smiles as the sights, smells and sounds of the hidden oasis wafte over her.
    [ 2016.03.18 23:39:35 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote steps to the side for Admiral Newelle.
    [ 2016.03.18 23:43:10 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote blinks slightly as if disoriented, she quickly snaps back to attention and looks at Admiral Newelle "I confess this is my favorite"
    [ 2016.03.18 23:43:12 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote steps slowly into the oasis and gasps silently
    [ 2016.03.18 23:44:40 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote looks slowly over the area taking in every detail.
    [ 2016.03.18 23:44:56 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote walks down the path, letting Mitari take it all in, She leans up and takes a fig.
    [ 2016.03.18 23:45:45 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote 's voice is husky, clearly she is moved by something she did not expect, "I... This is beautiful..."
    [ 2016.03.18 23:46:42 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote slowly moves down the path, her movements slow and careful, acting as if a sudden move my shatter what surely must be a dream.
    [ 2016.03.18 23:48:15 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote stops and looks at the waterfall and pool, her voice is quiet and still not quite her own yet, "I remember the first time I stood in the waters of an ocean... I have never felt... so.. at ease? I cannot explain it..."
    [ 2016.03.18 23:48:57 ] Mitara Newelle > Perhaps I am attache more to my homeworld than I had thought....
    [ 2016.03.18 23:49:37 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote clears her throat, "What did you mean... this is the inspiration, but not a garden per se?"
    [ 2016.03.18 23:49:37 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote smiles.
    [ 2016.03.18 23:49:50 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Correct.. it is.. the model of a natural oasis I remember.. visiting"
    [ 2016.03.18 23:50:10 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "But the Ni Kunni water garden incorporates these features. it is a sign of wealth to have water."
    [ 2016.03.18 23:50:42 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "So there will be pools and fountains and water flows admist fruit bearing shrubs and vines. Much more informal than the formal garden but a show..
    [ 2016.03.18 23:50:54 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote is listening but clearly lost in the beauty of the oasis
    [ 2016.03.18 23:50:58 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "of life giving water and food. of abundance and plenty"
    [ 2016.03.18 23:51:18 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote nods slowly
    [ 2016.03.18 23:51:44 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "So.. the plants you see here.. make their way into the formal gardens."
    [ 2016.03.18 23:51:53 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Water gardens, that is."
    [ 2016.03.18 23:53:11 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote smiles slightly, "I cannot imagine improving on this."
    [ 2016.03.18 23:53:29 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote looks at Luna and nods with approval.
    [ 2016.03.18 23:59:00 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote smiles.
    [ 2016.03.18 23:59:11 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Have you.. considered what you want to do on your Estate?"
    [ 2016.03.19 00:01:19 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote faces Luna and nods, "I have some ideas, yes..."
    [ 2016.03.19 00:01:40 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote leans against the fig tree "I'd love to hear them"
    [ 2016.03.19 00:01:41 ] Mitara Newelle > May I ask something more of you, Directrix?
    [ 2016.03.19 00:01:45 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Sure."
    [ 2016.03.19 00:02:59 ] Mitara Newelle > Would you do me the honor of assisting in the planning of my gardens? Perhaps overseeing the work if you have time?
    [ 2016.03.19 00:03:43 ] Mitara Newelle > I have ideas.. but need someone who has done something like this before
    [ 2016.03.19 00:04:04 ] Mitara Newelle > And you have a grasp on symbolism that I will never have.
    [ 2016.03.19 00:04:08 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I'd be delighted to be engaged to assist you." She pauses for a moment, pondering whether to ask something.
    [ 2016.03.19 00:04:45 ] Mitara Newelle > Are you reconsidering?
    [ 2016.03.19 00:05:00 ] Mitara Newelle > I know you are quite busy. I would not be offended.
    [ 2016.03.19 00:05:21 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > 'No...although i usually do this for hire. If I am not.. too forward, there is a favor I would accept as repayment if you would agree?"
    [ 2016.03.19 00:05:58 ] Mitara Newelle > I wouldn't think of not compensating you in some way. What is your favor?
    [ 2016.03.19 00:06:22 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > It would only cost um.. about 25 isk apiece. but I need a Holder.
    [ 2016.03.19 00:06:44 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "A.. tragic situation recently came to my attention."
    [ 2016.03.19 00:07:29 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote nearly bursts out laughing, "25 isk? Done. Oh... there is more? Pardon"
    [ 2016.03.19 00:07:35 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "A young ni-kunni and her woman were.. wrongfully convicted of a financial crime, and then rather than the usual 1-4 year sentence, were sent to life slavery by a corrupt holder who was in in cahoots with the holder."
    [ 2016.03.19 00:07:43 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > *and her parents
    [ 2016.03.19 00:08:08 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Unfortunately.. ordinary means of redress are not available. She and her parents are dead... and so is theholder and the provaceur."
    [ 2016.03.19 00:08:37 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote blinks, "Um... if all are dead...?"
    [ 2016.03.19 00:08:39 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "But.. she has two children who are in an orphanage for slave children. They were left behind after the Elder invacation because they were not Matari..."
    [ 2016.03.19 00:08:52 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Because technically they were born of a slave... well.."
    [ 2016.03.19 00:09:11 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I need a Holder to purchase and free them so.. they can be adopted and cared for. They are Ni Kunni."
    [ 2016.03.19 00:10:03 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "At this point.. there's really no other way to correct ths..injustice."
    [ 2016.03.19 00:11:42 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Everyone is dead."
    [ 2016.03.19 00:12:19 ] Mitara Newelle > I have qualms with purchasing them... I cannot say I would be so quick to free them, not until they have been evaluated. And do you really want them subject to whomever comes along to adopt them?
    [ 2016.03.19 00:12:58 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Well... I am taking a personal hand in making sure they are adopted appropriately."
    [ 2016.03.19 00:13:16 ] Mitara Newelle > Oh?
    [ 2016.03.19 00:13:20 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote blushes "I know.. for sure that the conviction was in error.. and that the mother was a woman in faith."
    [ 2016.03.19 00:13:30 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods.
    [ 2016.03.19 00:13:53 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > I have someone in mind.. if she says no...
    [ 2016.03.19 00:14:10 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "well.. I've raised four children before.. and helped raise my siblings and step siblings.."
    [ 2016.03.19 00:14:42 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote nods, "Then I am confident they will pass evaluation.... May I ask whom? You would take them on yourself?"
    [ 2016.03.19 00:15:01 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Yes, I am confident. I would take them on myself if necessary."
    [ 2016.03.19 00:15:19 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "As..the reason for slavery had nothing to do with moral or genetic deficiency."
    [ 2016.03.19 00:15:29 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote nods.
    [ 2016.03.19 00:15:30 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Nature or Nature"
    [ 2016.03.19 00:15:35 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > *Nature or Nurture
    [ 2016.03.19 00:15:51 ] Mitara Newelle > Who is your first choice?
    [ 2016.03.19 00:16:13 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I confess.. I'd like to ask her before I disclose her name... but it is someone known to you and who i think you'd trust."
    [ 2016.03.19 00:16:26 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "It is not a stranger to either PIE or SFRIM"
    [ 2016.03.19 00:16:30 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote raises a brow.
    [ 2016.03.19 00:17:01 ] Mitara Newelle > I would like to know the end result of this before proceeding.
    [ 2016.03.19 00:17:21 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods slightly. "Even if I say I will do it in her stead?"
    [ 2016.03.19 00:17:46 ] Mitara Newelle > But I think we do have an arrangement. Yes, most certainly if you do."
    [ 2016.03.19 00:18:20 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods. "Thank you." she quirks a smile "I confess.. this is an unusual means of repayment. But I am delighted to help with the gardens."
    [ 2016.03.19 00:18:45 ] Mitara Newelle > I am delighted to have the assistance
    [ 2016.03.19 00:18:51 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Perhaps the next step should be to visit your estate when you are free.. to discuss your ideas?"
    [ 2016.03.19 00:19:03 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "And.. I should have an answer by her by them, I hope."
    [ 2016.03.19 00:20:30 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote nods, "Yes, or we can discuss them at our leisure. The labor and basic materials are already in place. Once we know what we are doing, construction should be swift."
    [ 2016.03.19 00:21:17 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods. "Wonderful. Please contact me when you aready.. I need.. to finish tending to the Mehatoor market tonight." She smiles "Over 4 billion isk of material has been placed into the market for the 24th IC"
    [ 2016.03.19 00:21:25 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "We have also stocked Myyera"
    [ 2016.03.19 00:22:46 ] Mitara Newelle > I can at least give you a very vague idea now if you'd like?
    [ 2016.03.19 00:22:57 ] Mitara Newelle > Ah, very well.
    [ 2016.03.19 00:22:57 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Sure."
    [ 2016.03.19 00:23:16 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote plucks another fig.
    [ 2016.03.19 00:24:14 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I.. think matters can hold a little longer." She looks at Mitty, prepared to listen.
    [ 2016.03.19 00:24:44 ] Mitara Newelle > Well, I was thinking at the entrance, a small agri type garden,
    [ 2016.03.19 00:25:04 ] Mitara Newelle > Where I started from in life... sort of.
    [ 2016.03.19 00:25:24 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote shrugs not sure how to put into words.
    [ 2016.03.19 00:25:45 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "is there a crop that was common where you grew up?"
    [ 2016.03.19 00:26:12 ] Mitara Newelle > then I would like to have a split - one side favoring the style of Dam Torsad...
    [ 2016.03.19 00:26:28 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote 's face grows taught, "No."
    [ 2016.03.19 00:26:53 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote continues, relaxing, "The other favoring the water garden."
    [ 2016.03.19 00:27:05 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote tilts her head slightly, looking uncertain at Mitty's answer, but listens as she continues to speak.
    [ 2016.03.19 00:27:48 ] Mitara Newelle > My center piece would be Empress Jamyl, of course.
    [ 2016.03.19 00:28:17 ] Mitara Newelle > The split uniting on the far side of the garden and intertwining styles.
    [ 2016.03.19 00:28:23 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods.
    [ 2016.03.19 00:28:57 ] Mitara Newelle > However, I would like the irrigation, and water in general to be visible and present through all aspects of the garden.
    [ 2016.03.19 00:29:32 ] Mitara Newelle > We are working with limited space... Is there a styling that can be done more vertically?
    [ 2016.03.19 00:30:12 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I can mull over it. Terracing is a possibility, plus for water,.. waterfalls and drops can be attractive."
    [ 2016.03.19 00:30:26 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote nods enthusiastically
    [ 2016.03.19 00:31:38 ] Mitara Newelle > My thoughts were the areas closest to the center would come out as rows, like a starburst if looked at from above.
    [ 2016.03.19 00:32:19 ] Mitara Newelle > Then giving way to more maze like layouts where people can stroll through more privately.
    [ 2016.03.19 00:32:23 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods thoughtfully.
    [ 2016.03.19 00:32:28 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I like that idea.. "
    [ 2016.03.19 00:34:03 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote exposes a left palm, "the Dam Torsad styling being more like my upbringing" * she opens the right palm, "The oasis style to remind Lord Newelle of his home."
    [ 2016.03.19 00:34:30 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods. "I hope he likes that."

    Virtual Space

    [ 2016.03.20 19:06:28 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote invited you to connect via a Holo Feed.  She is on the edge of the warzone and recalled you were going elsewhere.
    [ 2016.03.20 19:06:41 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote flickers in.
    [ 2016.03.20 19:07:25 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote has set up a strangely celestial environment.  It is a diamond platform suspended in space.  Galaxies and comets swirl overhead.  it seems to be orboting a large ringed gas giant with resplendent rings.
    [ 2016.03.20 19:07:43 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote takes a look around.
    [ 2016.03.20 19:07:59 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote in the center of the platform are two plush chairs, a table, and a sparking fire.  The table has drinks and snacks.  Too bad you can't eat them,
    [ 2016.03.20 19:08:24 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote flickers in . -c-
    [ 2016.03.20 19:08:49 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote is wearing a shimmering almost translucent (but not, she is Amarr after all) dress with sparkling stars and constellations, that is floor length and spills out like a puddle of molten silver around her feet.   -c-
    [ 2016.03.20 19:09:15 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > 's long hair is platinum white and braided and held together by a series of small claspes that look like planets.  she glides over to the chairs and glances at Ali.
    [ 2016.03.20 19:09:41 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote quirks a smile. "Hello Ali", uttering dispensing with formalities.  No one is here afterall.
    [ 2016.03.20 19:11:52 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote bows in the Caldari fashion. "Mrs. Daphit.  This is a spectacular sight."
    [ 2016.03.20 19:12:35 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Please, Lunarisse, here anyway."  She looks around. "I like this program.. it reminds me of why I tried to fly in the first place."
    [ 2016.03.20 19:12:50 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote nods.  "Lunarisse it is then."
    [ 2016.03.20 19:13:20 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Do you feel better than last night?"
    [ 2016.03.20 19:15:05 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I don't hurt so much."
    [ 2016.03.20 19:15:23 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote is very resevered in her demeanor.
    [ 2016.03.20 19:15:57 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods. "They are finally pushed back out of Empire space,  I saw."
    [ 2016.03.20 19:16:17 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I know some may say service is its own reward.. but thank you.'
    [ 2016.03.20 19:16:47 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote simply nods.  "It was the least I could do in Empress Jamyl's memory."
    [ 2016.03.20 19:17:15 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I am sure the Lady Admiral is also grateful."
    [ 2016.03.20 19:17:54 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I have not had a chance to speak to her, yet."
    [ 2016.03.20 19:18:31 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote frowns. "But its not over.. and Iintend to try to be more active on this if the flight times are more favorable.  I understand that ARC's operations are in hiatus, but if they resume against the Hives, I want to fly and I want to provide more -c-
    [ 2016.03.20 19:18:38 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > support and material to the operations."
    [ 2016.03.20 19:18:50 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I am sure they would like that."
    [ 2016.03.20 19:19:53 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Have you given any thought to the orphans.. and whether you will be returning to us?"
    [ 2016.03.20 19:21:17 ] Alizabeth Vea > "All my my time is given over to that. . . . I would like to meet Alqamar's children.  They would of course have a say in whether they would wish to be adopted by a Caldari."
    [ 2016.03.20 19:21:52 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods. "i can arrange for that as soon as you wish.  They are on Mishi IV"
    [ 2016.03.20 19:22:17 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Is today a good day?"
    [ 2016.03.20 19:23:00 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "it is.. " (in particular after the kids go to sleep)
    [ 2016.03.20 19:23:17 ] Alizabeth Vea > "If you could arrange that, please."
    [ 2016.03.20 19:23:21 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I will."
    [ 2016.03.20 19:23:48 ] Alizabeth Vea > "This whole slavery thing . . . "
    [ 2016.03.20 19:24:31 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote sighs. "it is hard for those who have not grown up here.  As hard as it is for me to understand themegacorporations in the State I suspect"
    [ 2016.03.20 19:25:28 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Are you able to.. put the issue aside enough? Knowing that the Society, among its other goals, does seek to ensure the Empire's laws are followed and corrupt holders brought to justice?"
    [ 2016.03.20 19:25:47 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I'm trying to figure that out."
    [ 2016.03.20 19:25:53 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods.
    [ 2016.03.20 19:26:09 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote leans up and casualy snags a comet.  She holds it like a fluttering bird.  "Have you positioned  your assets in a place where they are safe from the war dec yet? if not.. perhaps a little more time is fair..."
    [ 2016.03.20 19:26:18 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "You should talk to Lady Admiral Newelle"
    [ 2016.03.20 19:28:06 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Even if I decided to rejoin the Society right now, I could not for another five days, due to CONCORD rules."
    [ 2016.03.20 19:30:21 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Ah" she wrinkles her nose. "Concord."  A lot is left unsaid that is loaded into her tone of voice.
    [ 2016.03.20 19:31:30 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote releases the comet which zips up, circles Luna once, then shoots uoff onto the sky.
    [ 2016.03.20 19:31:50 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Is there anything.. i can talk to you about or explain better Ali?"
    [ 2016.03.20 19:32:21 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote sighs. "I don't know.  I just wanted Amarr to be better.  To be worth it."
    [ 2016.03.20 19:32:56 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "The grass.. is always greener on the other side.  But every place.. has its shadows."
    [ 2016.03.20 19:33:10 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Utari said that to me."
    [ 2016.03.20 19:33:19 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I like to think and pray that you  will remember some of the people you spent your time wth and some of the Good things you have seen in the Empire as well"
    [ 2016.03.20 19:33:21 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods.
    [ 2016.03.20 19:34:19 ] Alizabeth Vea > "And what is that?  Tell me."
    [ 2016.03.20 19:36:29 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I can't see that right now."
    [ 2016.03.20 19:36:30 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "The strength of its people, the Faith, the myriad worlds that  it encompasses, its genourosity, the arts, the sciences."
    [ 2016.03.20 19:37:18 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Forced labor is.. not an unusual condition in many societies.  Not just the Empire.  That poor girl was wrongfully convicted, her family was.  Are there no corrupt judges or CEO'sin the State?"
    [ 2016.03.20 19:37:42 ] Alizabeth Vea > "There are, I am sure."
    [ 2016.03.20 19:39:01 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "You can make a difference here.  We do have a body of capsuleers that try to make a difference or stand for principles rather then.. " she shrugs "chasing only isk"
    [ 2016.03.20 19:39:05 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Like the Lady Admiral"
    [ 2016.03.20 19:39:34 ] Alizabeth Vea > "If I stay . . . I cannot promise that I won't speak out against slavery."
    [ 2016.03.20 19:41:18 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Well.' she frowns. "We are an Empire loyal corporation.  Would you be willing to limit it.. to fighting abuses?  I have been following up on an old PIE effort in that regard and seeing if it can be updated and retried."
    [ 2016.03.20 19:42:24 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Unlike the former Imperial Outlaws run by Lady Lianne, we can't take a public anti slavery stance."
    [ 2016.03.20 19:42:47 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "And it could cause. issues for Lady Admiral Newelle as well"
    [ 2016.03.20 19:43:34 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I cannot believe that she would approve of slavery."
    [ 2016.03.20 19:44:45 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "The concept is correction.  Criminals in the Empire are sentenced to various terms, along with their progency.  In the girl's case it should have been no more than 1 to 4 years.  The reasoning has to do with nature and nuture."
    [ 2016.03.20 19:45:22 ] Alizabeth Vea > "And making someone a breeder slave?"
    [ 2016.03.20 19:45:30 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "If the genes predispose the criminal, or their upbringing, a corrective period is meant to retrain them, both morally and in the Faith. As you know, the Empire no longer reclaims."
    [ 2016.03.20 19:45:59 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote sighs. "That should not have happened to her."
    [ 2016.03.20 19:46:52 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "You should discuss it with the Lady Admiral.. or Holy Mother.  I.. am good any many things.  Explaining religion and culture is not one of my strong suits."
    [ 2016.03.20 19:49:02 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote nods.  She thinks for a moment. "I'm not actually an Imperial citizen; I don't know if I could be.  Would that interfere with me adopting Alqamar's children?"
    [ 2016.03.20 19:49:33 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "if they are freed by Lady Admiral Newelle.. not. i think.. unless you don't intend to stay in the Empire"
    [ 2016.03.20 19:50:09 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "She would want to make sure they were brought up in the Empire and in the Faith, i think, from her comments."
    [ 2016.03.20 19:50:32 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > If.. you.. needed a God Mother..
    [ 2016.03.20 19:50:37 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > in case GSF calls you,,,
    [ 2016.03.20 19:50:43 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I would be willing."
    [ 2016.03.20 19:51:42 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote nods slowly. "This assumes that they even want me as their adopted mother."
    [ 2016.03.20 19:51:57 ] Alizabeth Vea > "All I really have to offer them is a nearly bottomless pool of wealth."
    [ 2016.03.20 19:52:10 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I.. think they would be thrilled to get out of there."
    [ 2016.03.20 19:53:01 ] Alizabeth Vea > "No matter what, they have to be free.  If there
    [ 2016.03.20 19:53:17 ] Alizabeth Vea > there's even a chance of my staying in the Empire, they have to be freed."
    [ 2016.03.20 19:53:27 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods.
    [ 2016.03.20 19:53:32 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Understood."
    [ 2016.03.20 19:54:02 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I believe I have prevailed on the Lady Admiral to free them given the circumstances.  She does want to make sure they are cared for in the manner  I descrbed."
    [ 2016.03.20 19:54:32 ] Alizabeth Vea > "If she gives you any problems, let me know."
    [ 2016.03.20 19:55:57 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I will."  she smiles softly.  She plicks a pebble, a flat one, from the ground and sends its skipping across the rings of the gas giant, sparks and puffs flying each time it lands.
    [ 2016.03.20 19:56:39 ] Alizabeth Vea > "This is a wonderful simulation."
    [ 2016.03.20 19:57:05 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote laughs softly "One of my guilty pleasures."
    [ 2016.03.20 19:59:32 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I would never think of making something like this.  And your outfit is . . . very nice."
    [ 2016.03.20 19:59:51 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Thank you."  she smiles.
    [ 2016.03.20 20:00:34 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Next time.. see if you can come up with an outfit,  uf you'd like"
    [ 2016.03.20 20:01:09 ] Alizabeth Vea > "So . . . you remember that night, with Alqamar and I?  And her kissing me."
    [ 2016.03.20 20:01:33 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I remember her memories.  I am having trouble sorting between those and.. my flash backs.  I do remember she was with someone."
    [ 2016.03.20 20:01:44 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Whether it was you.. or someone else.. she received comfort."
    [ 2016.03.20 20:02:10 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Do you remember kissing me?  Or Alqamar kissing me."
    [ 2016.03.20 20:04:39 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote blinks. "I am not sure.  if she did.. it's because she wanted to."
    [ 2016.03.20 20:05:37 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Oh, okay.  Sometimes . . . I still see her in you."
    [ 2016.03.20 20:06:48 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote smiles softly. "In a sense I will carry her always.  I can.. play the flute now.. or the Ni Kunni version of it."
    [ 2016.03.20 20:07:48 ] Alizabeth Vea > "She was very good.  I really wish I could have met her still living."
    [ 2016.03.20 20:07:59 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I.. remember her almost as much as .. my own memories."  She nods. "The same"
    [ 2016.03.20 20:11:47 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I.. need to go ALi. I will try to set it up so we can meet them tonight"
    [ 2016.03.20 20:12:00 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Can you arrange to be at Mishi IV if I arrange it?"
    [ 2016.03.20 20:12:38 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Yes."
    [ 2016.03.20 20:13:09 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Alright."  She touches Ali on the arm and gives it a light squeeze, well.. its holo anyway "Be well."
    [ 2016.03.20 20:13:23 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote flickers out in a shower of stars.
    [ 2016.03.20 20:13:32 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote nods
    [ 2016.03.20 20:13:35 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Farewell."

    Somewhere on Mishi IV

    [ 2016.03.21 02:10:02 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote arrives in in a Sarum red Ni-Kunni style robe.
    [ 2016.03.21 02:12:59 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote is dressed in an outfit befitting the climate. A leather jacket, khaki pants and a white hat.
    [ 2016.03.21 02:13:30 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says warmly "hello"
    [ 2016.03.21 02:13:31 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote bows to Luna, in the Amarr fashoin. "Salve."
    [ 2016.03.21 02:13:45 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "They are inside, I arranged for a room for us to meet them,"
    [ 2016.03.21 02:14:35 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Thank you. Do they know what is happening?"
    [ 2016.03.21 02:15:15 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Yes. They know they have been taken out of the orphanage. They only know you are a potential adopter, but they already know they are going to be adopted by someone."
    [ 2016.03.21 02:15:33 ] Alizabeth Vea > "They know they are going to be freed?"
    [ 2016.03.21 02:16:02 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "They know that is the goal. I believe the Lady Admiral agreedto that.. even if she did not agree yet as to who will adopt. I need to discuss you.. with her."
    [ 2016.03.21 02:16:27 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I know she is comfortable with me.. but I asked her to let me speak with someone first to see if they were interested"
    [ 2016.03.21 02:16:44 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I might have mentioned it to her. I . . . tried to talk to her. I don't think she understands why I . . . hate the idea of slavery."
    [ 2016.03.21 02:16:46 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "She.. has not been available. I planned to talk to her before we did this."
    [ 2016.03.21 02:16:49 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods.
    [ 2016.03.21 02:17:01 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I just came from talking to Lady Newelle."
    [ 2016.03.21 02:17:11 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I see."
    [ 2016.03.21 02:18:09 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I did not tell her what happened, just that I met Alqamar in a simulation."
    [ 2016.03.21 02:18:18 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Fair enough."
    [ 2016.03.21 02:18:29 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "She only knows i had a reliable source. She did take my word on it at the time."
    [ 2016.03.21 02:19:24 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote nods. "Now I need to figure out what I am going to tell them."
    [ 2016.03.21 02:20:21 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Well... " she says wryly "keep it close to the truth without the.. wierd parts."
    [ 2016.03.21 02:20:41 ] Alizabeth Vea > "The weird parts? What part of this is not weird?"
    [ 2016.03.21 02:21:26 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote giggles.
    [ 2016.03.21 02:21:40 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Just.. that you learned of their mother's story andit moved you."
    [ 2016.03.21 02:21:46 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "i think is.. simple enough?"
    [ 2016.03.21 02:22:01 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Honestly, they should know the truth. The whole truth."
    [ 2016.03.21 02:22:23 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote frowns. "I'd.. rather not."
    [ 2016.03.21 02:22:38 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I trust you. But children.. don't know what to say and not to say"
    [ 2016.03.21 02:22:58 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Alright. One day, though, they should know the truth. Even if it's not today."
    [ 2016.03.21 02:24:19 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I don't disagree, when they are old enough to know discretion and keeping secrets."
    [ 2016.03.21 02:24:45 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Alright. Lead on, then."
    [ 2016.03.21 02:25:28 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote opens the door and enters. It is a simple and comfortable room, clearly for orphans to meet prospetive adoptive parents. There are couches and video screens and books.
    [ 2016.03.21 02:26:07 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote notes that the 10 and 12 year old are on one of the couches. The 12 year old boy is reading a book. the 10 year old girl is playing a video game.
    [ 2016.03.21 02:26:27 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote takes a breath as she steps through the door, looking in apprehensively.
    [ 2016.03.21 02:26:49 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote clears her throat "Children.. my friend is here. The one who wants to see you." she says it firmly enough to cut through the book and video games.
    [ 2016.03.21 02:27:23 ] Alizabeth Vea > "If I'm, um, not interrupting." Ali speaks Amarrish, but with a distinct Caldari accent.
    [ 2016.03.21 02:32:58 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **The Boy and girl Get up quickly, they look nervous**
    [ 2016.03.21 02:33:34 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > This is the.. lady I said was interested in meeting you for adoption. She's a member of my organization.
    [ 2016.03.21 02:33:57 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Her name is Alizabeth Vea, but I think she will be okay if you call her Ali" she looks at ALi for confirmation.
    [ 2016.03.21 02:34:00 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote smiles timidly.
    [ 2016.03.21 02:34:24 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says gently "Can you tell her your names?"
    [ 2016.03.21 02:34:28 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote nods to Luna and looks to the kids. "Ali will work just fine."
    [ 2016.03.21 02:35:18 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **The boy responds "My name is Din, my sister is Hasani"
    [ 2016.03.21 02:35:47 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **Din says "You don't look Amarr." He looks relieved at that. The girl remains silent but offers a shy smile.
    [ 2016.03.21 02:37:54 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Well, I'm Caldari. Deteis, actually. I am of the faith, though."
    [ 2016.03.21 02:38:34 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **Hasani says "Mum always had us say our prayers." She is dressed modestly and has a set of prayer beads.
    [ 2016.03.21 02:39:19 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote looks at Ali and says via her implants "Hopefully close enough to hav somethng in common..but different enough.. to set you apart.. from the ones who.. they delt with before"
    [ 2016.03.21 02:39:50 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote smiles. "And so am I. I am glad you are of the Faith" She looks at the girl with her beads. "What we usually do now.. i think is I step back and let you all talk."
    [ 2016.03.21 02:41:21 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote looks at Ali.
    [ 2016.03.21 02:41:22 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote nods slowly to Luna, still deer in the headlights. "Of course. Thank you, Directrix."
    [ 2016.03.21 02:42:26 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **Hasani says "Do you like to play video games?"
    [ 2016.03.21 02:43:35 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I have played some. What games do you like to play?"
    [ 2016.03.21 02:45:09 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **Hasani says "I like to play a space shooter game." She looks shyly
    [ 2016.03.21 02:45:44 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **Hasani says "I fly a ship and it goes fast and.. I blow the bad guys up." she says that flatly, oddly enough.
    [ 2016.03.21 02:45:44 ] Alizabeth Vea > "A space shooter game? What's it like?" she kneels down so Hasani doesn't have to look up.
    [ 2016.03.21 02:46:10 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **Hasani says "Space is pretty.. not like this sandy dust hole."
    [ 2016.03.21 02:46:58 ] Alizabeth Vea > "It is." she smiles and looks to Din. "And you? Do you play games or do you like to read?"
    [ 2016.03.21 02:47:31 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **Din says "I like to read. Mostly religious texts.. but" he looks embarassed "other things too"
    [ 2016.03.21 02:48:24 ] Alizabeth Vea > "What other things?" Ali tries to be warm. "You can be honest with me."
    [ 2016.03.21 02:49:13 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **Din does not make eye contact "Sometimes the matron's don't notice what books are donated... sometimes I like to read stories of what.. its like somewhere else"
    [ 2016.03.21 02:49:45 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Where else do you read of?"
    [ 2016.03.21 02:51:34 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **Din looks down and says in a low voice "space stations out in tbe beyond, lost colonies... places with.." he says in a strangled voice "girls that are allowed to look pretty"
    [ 2016.03.21 02:51:41 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > *Hasani rolls her eyes at that.
    [ 2016.03.21 02:51:56 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote giggles. "Girls aren't allowed to look pretty here?"
    [ 2016.03.21 02:52:18 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **Din just looks more and more embarassed.
    [ 2016.03.21 02:53:08 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **Din says "if you adopt us, can we leave Mishi iv?"
    [ 2016.03.21 02:53:44 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **hasani says "We didn't grow up here.. they brought us here when we were little. Our mum.. never had a chanc eto show us around"
    [ 2016.03.21 02:54:05 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Pffft. I think you can safely say that if I adopt you, you will leave here."
    [ 2016.03.21 02:54:34 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I'm a capsuleer, do you know what that is?"
    [ 2016.03.21 02:55:02 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **the children brighten up and start talking excitedly asking questions about where, in what and the like. Then paused when Ali asks that.
    [ 2016.03.21 02:55:20 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **Din says "I heard they are space pilots, in some of my stories"
    [ 2016.03.21 02:55:33 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote nods slowly, a little worried.
    [ 2016.03.21 02:55:36 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **Hasani says "I pretend to be one.. in my game,"
    [ 2016.03.21 02:55:49 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **Hasani says "it's how I can always restart when I lose a ship"
    [ 2016.03.21 02:56:06 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote chuckles. "Yes, that's true."
    [ 2016.03.21 02:57:09 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Why don't we go sit on the couch? You can ask me all the questions you want."
    [ 2016.03.21 02:57:23 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > *Din asks "Is it really you.. again?" He does make his way to the couch, so does his sister.
    [ 2016.03.21 02:57:51 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Is it really me, what?"
    [ 2016.03.21 02:58:40 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **Din looks down "Well.. I heard capsuleers are clones. A computer program is inserted in their brain each time they die to restart them"
    [ 2016.03.21 02:58:41 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Oh. If I get podded and have to clone? Well, was it really Empress Jamyl when she came back?"
    [ 2016.03.21 02:59:01 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **Hasani says "Of course because that was a miracle."
    [ 2016.03.21 02:59:30 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **Din says "But .. if its you.. I don't know?"
    [ 2016.03.21 03:00:36 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Well, I look at it like this. When I die, my mind is scanned in the pod and it's sent out to the new clone. I wake up remembering everything that happened before. I think that I am me. I leave the question of my soul to God."
    [ 2016.03.21 03:01:19 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **Hasani says "Well if you are alive of course you have a soul." Dinn simply nods listening to Ali.
    [ 2016.03.21 03:01:56 ] Alizabeth Vea > "We're nothing more than a collection of our expereinces, right?"
    [ 2016.03.21 03:02:09 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **Din says "right.."
    [ 2016.03.21 03:02:31 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Then I am me."
    [ 2016.03.21 03:02:53 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **Dinn asks "Everytime?"
    [ 2016.03.21 03:04:50 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote pauses for a moment. "Every time. Do you think that you would both be okay with that? If thid body was killed and I came back in another one?"
    [ 2016.03.21 03:05:23 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **Hasani says after a pause "I think I would be. If God didn't want it to be so.. you wouldn't re-clone."
    [ 2016.03.21 03:05:42 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **Dinn is slower. He looks at Ali "Are you.. the original Ali now?"
    [ 2016.03.21 03:06:08 ] Alizabeth Vea > "No, hun. I've been podded a lot."
    [ 2016.03.21 03:07:21 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **Dinn is quiet about that for a moment. "You don't look like,.. you've been killed a lot. Would you still.. want us if you were a new clone?"
    [ 2016.03.21 03:08:16 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Of course I would."
    [ 2016.03.21 03:09:12 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **Dinn says quietly "Then I'd be fine with it."
    [ 2016.03.21 03:10:56 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote smiles. "So, what other questions do you have?"
    [ 2016.03.21 03:11:14 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **Hasani says "Can I get more computer games?"
    [ 2016.03.21 03:11:28 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **Dinn says, not wiating for an answer "Will we see you much?"
    [ 2016.03.21 03:13:29 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote giggles. "You can get more computer games, so long as you keep up with your school work." before taking a breath and looking back at Din. "There will be times that I have to go out into space, where I have to go off to fight. Have they told you ...

    [ 2016.03.21 03:16:04 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **The children's eyes winden at that. Hasani looks really impressed.

    [ 2016.03.21 03:25:27 ] Alizabeth Vea > "What happened to you and your mother was wrong. As soon as we found out about it, we both decided to do what we could to correct it."
    [ 2016.03.21 03:25:42 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **Hasani says "We know there are others. they are the Chosen. But.. we're more comfortable.. with someone like you taking care of us'

    The Good Word

    A variety of input options are available: you may use text, audio, video and hologram or image. >>Choose truth and oppose lies. Spread light where there is darkness<<TGW:// The Good Word is a channel for those interested to learn about the Amarr, the Empire and its culture. Its goal is to further international understanding in the spirit of the Pax Amarria. All discussion on that topic is encouraged as long as it stays civil and largely friendly.While generally open to the larger public, any behaviour that breaks the bounds of civility and good mores (esp. endorsement or advertisement of heretic ideas and practices) or is disrupting reasoned dialogue will not be tolerated. Attempts to monopolize the debate (e.g. by questioning the right of anyone to stay in channel who did not break channel rules: If you think someone might violate the rules, message the channel operators, don't call them out in channel, optimally providing logs) are considered disturbing reasoned dialogue.Grand Coat of Arms of SFRIMWe endorse the Praetorian Temple Library.Recruitment/Diplomacy: Lunarisse Aspenstar Moderators: Lucas Raholan Lunarisse Aspenstar

    [ 2016.03.21 16:13:12 ] Aria Jenneth > ... Salve, pilots.
    [ 2016.03.21 16:13:37 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Morning, V-A-Ms. Jenneth."
    [ 2016.03.21 16:16:33 ] Aria Jenneth > ...? Um. Hello, Ali.
    [ 2016.03.21 16:16:44 ] Aria Jenneth > Any of the three is okay. Really.
    [ 2016.03.21 16:18:22 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Yes, but in public, should be formal, yes?"
    [ 2016.03.21 16:18:55 ] Aria Jenneth > ... well ... maybe, but ...
    [ 2016.03.21 16:19:13 ] Aria Jenneth > What can I call you, and have it sound formal? "Ms. Ali?"
    [ 2016.03.21 16:19:47 ] Alizabeth Vea > "If you wish. I suppose I would need a new last name."
    [ 2016.03.21 16:23:15 ] Aria Jenneth > ... well-- *faint smile* We should maybe ... look into usual protocols between servants. The nobility's pretty easy to pick up basics for, even if the fine points can get ... troublesome, but ...
    [ 2016.03.21 16:23:34 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Servants?"
    [ 2016.03.21 16:24:10 ] Aria Jenneth > ... Mm-hm. Formally, that's what we both are, albeit not exactly the sort that's setting out the dinner formalware.
    [ 2016.03.21 16:24:26 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Formally, I am not."
    [ 2016.03.21 16:24:54 ] Aria Jenneth > No? You're a retainer to a high-ranking Amarrian. I'm a retainer to one of lower rank.
    [ 2016.03.21 16:25:51 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I would never use the term servant. Nor do I consider myself one."
    [ 2016.03.21 16:26:20 ] Aria Jenneth > ... *slight grimace* It's a really hierarchical society, Ali.
    [ 2016.03.21 16:27:34 ] Aria Jenneth > And the nature of the oath, if yours is ... anything like mine ...
    [ 2016.03.21 16:28:16 ] Alizabeth Vea > "What you don't know is that after the trials, the four of us on the team swore oathes of sister and brotherhood. It is, respectfully, not like yours."
    [ 2016.03.21 16:28:43 ] Aria Jenneth > ... ah. Okay, then.
    [ 2016.03.21 16:28:55 ] Aria Jenneth > I apologize for the misunderstanding.
    [ 2016.03.21 16:30:25 ] Aria Jenneth > ... we had spoken of an oath like mine, before, as a possible answer to certain questions. I didn't know you were ... bound to the Admiral already.
    [ 2016.03.21 16:30:46 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I would never, for the sake of the kids, accept the role of a 'servant.' If I swear a similar oath to Lady Newelle, I will make it clear that she has my sword, but not my body, nor my will."
    [ 2016.03.21 16:31:16 ] Aria Jenneth > ... well ... then that is a difference between us.
    [ 2016.03.21 16:31:32 ] Aria Jenneth > I'm sorry to have offended you.
    [ 2016.03.21 16:31:48 ] Alizabeth Vea > "You have not. Just some things have been put into perspective."
    [ 2016.03.21 16:32:44 ] Aria Jenneth > ... in which case, we definitely need to find something more formal for me to call you by.
    [ 2016.03.21 16:33:16 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Ali's fine."
    [ 2016.03.21 16:33:49 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I'm technically still the Saturnista for SFRIM, just on detached duty to defeat the Drifters."
    [ 2016.03.21 16:36:00 ] Aria Jenneth > Are you sure? If I understand the protocol correctly, "Aria" or "Vesper" will ... be fine for you to use, though, even in a formal setting.
    [ 2016.03.21 16:37:12 ] Alizabeth Vea > "YOu know what. Screw it. We're both Caldari in a 'strange' land. I'll call you Aria, you can call me Ali and anyone that gets bent out of shape about it will just have to . . . well, get bent."
    [ 2016.03.21 16:38:29 ] Aria Jenneth > ... okay ...
    [ 2016.03.21 16:40:49 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I'm going to be adopting Alqamar's children, Aria. So, for their sake, we're going to avoid throwing around terms like servant, doubly so in regards to me."
    [ 2016.03.21 16:42:11 ] Aria Jenneth > ... I did ... gather as much, Ali. ... *she seems to have more to say, but falls silent*
    [ 2016.03.21 16:42:24 ] Alizabeth Vea > "What?"
    [ 2016.03.21 16:43:35 ] Aria Jenneth > ... *you can sort of see the mental/social calculations* ... um ...
    [ 2016.03.21 16:43:51 ] Alizabeth Vea > "You can open up a private channel if you wish."

    Luna's Starlight Express

    "The virtual space is a strangely celestial environment.  It is a diamond platform, apparently suspended in outer space.  Galaxies and comets swirl overhead.  it seems to be orboting a large ringed gas giant with resplendent rings.In the center of the platform are two plush chairs, a table, and a sparking fire.  The table has drinks and snacks.  Too bad you can't eat them,Lunarisse' avatar is wearing a shimmering almost translucent (but not, she is Amarr after all) dress with sparkling stars and constellations, that is floor length and spills out like a puddle of molten silver around her feet.  Lunarisse's long hair is platinum white and braided and held together by a series of small claspes that look like planets.

    [ 2016.03.21 20:50:55 ] Aria Jenneth > ...?
    [ 2016.03.21 20:51:01 ] Aria Jenneth > *looks around*
    [ 2016.03.21 20:51:08 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Well. Aria.. I don't have much time.  But consider this virtual space your comm line to me.
    [ 2016.03.21 20:51:38 ] Aria Jenneth > Okay. Thank you, Directrix. Um. There ... are a couple minor matters for your attention, when you have time.
    [ 2016.03.21 20:51:54 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods. "Alright"
    [ 2016.03.21 20:54:04 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I.. am meeting with Mr. Onzo shortly in Cafe Marlinea."
    [ 2016.03.21 20:54:25 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "is there something I should know about? He is .. rather closed mouthed."
    [ 2016.03.21 20:54:30 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "As to why/"
    [ 2016.03.21 20:54:50 ] Aria Jenneth > ...? Do you ... desire my presence, Directrix? ... I can sort of see how you might not, considering.
    [ 2016.03.21 20:55:09 ] Aria Jenneth > Um. Well ... I'm not really sure, but ... it might be one of the things I also wanted to ask about.
    [ 2016.03.21 20:57:26 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Until I know why.. perhaps it might be be best if you were not present."
    [ 2016.03.21 20:57:57 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Can you summarize what other issues you wanted to mention? I may not have time to respond but I can start thinking about them...
    [ 2016.03.21 20:58:28 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote leans up and casualy snags a "comet".  She holds it like a fluttering bird.

    [ 2016.03.21 21:57:02 ] Aria Jenneth > Well-- secrets, actually. And specifically ... um. It's a thing I'm actually pretty hesitant to ask about, as it may imply things that I really don't mean to and probably aren't quite ... accurate.
    [ 2016.03.21 21:57:14 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods.
    [ 2016.03.21 21:57:23 ] Aria Jenneth > I have a duty to ... be your agent and keep your secrets, Directrix.
    [ 2016.03.21 21:58:15 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Fiduciary, rather.  You are far more than agent or an servant or employee."
    [ 2016.03.21 21:58:22 ] Aria Jenneth > That creates some ... minor tensions ... in a certain other important relationship. As when something distressing happens, and i can't explain why I'm worried or upset.
    [ 2016.03.21 21:58:32 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "If I were a noble, you'd be considered a vassal."
    [ 2016.03.21 21:58:58 ] Aria Jenneth > Yes, Directrix. ... Um.
    [ 2016.03.21 21:59:11 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > I see.  Well.. anything in open comms outside the corporation is hardly a secret. *she shrugs*
    [ 2016.03.21 22:00:21 ] Aria Jenneth > ... I'll take that as ... my answer, then, Directrix.
    [ 2016.03.21 22:00:30 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Your answer?"
    [ 2016.03.21 22:01:16 ] Aria Jenneth > ... Um. I'd like to withdraw the question, or implication of question, and so on, Directrix.
    [ 2016.03.21 22:01:23 ] Aria Jenneth > Clarifying seems bad.
    [ 2016.03.21 22:01:56 ] Aria Jenneth > Also-- um. I'm worried I may have badly upset Ali, Directrix.
    [ 2016.03.21 22:02:03 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Oh?"
    [ 2016.03.21 22:02:37 ] Aria Jenneth > Well ... her relationship with the Empire's always been a little ... um. Mixed?
    [ 2016.03.21 22:03:26 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods. "She is a.. recent convert.  I've known her for a long time.. as a customer she asked me for different things over the years.  I confess.. I introduced her to some religious and eventually.. it seems God worked his way"
    [ 2016.03.21 22:03:43 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "But.. she is still Caldari to the core.. .  There are conflicts mentally, i think"
    [ 2016.03.21 22:03:44 ] Aria Jenneth > She'd been making remarks basically daring the Empire to try to take a certain ... pair of orphans from her. And indicating she was going to raise them without any sense that they or she ... had to bow to anyone, and so on.
    [ 2016.03.21 22:04:17 ] Aria Jenneth > ... I offered an analysis on ... possible consequences. She didn't take it very well.
    [ 2016.03.21 22:04:24 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Oh.  Well they are not slaves anymore.  However, it would be a disservice to them to not raise them.. how to conducr themselves in our Society"
    [ 2016.03.21 22:04:39 ] Aria Jenneth > My ... feeling also, Directrix.
    [ 2016.03.21 22:04:40 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote frowns."the Lady Admiral Newelle would also be quite upset."
    [ 2016.03.21 22:05:23 ] Aria Jenneth > However, I'm afraid she concluded that she therefore shouldn't adopt them.
    [ 2016.03.21 22:05:26 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Even.. a null denizion has to bow to someone... unless you are a warlord at the top.  Even then I'd argue they will eventually also have to, in this life or the next."
    [ 2016.03.21 22:05:58 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote frowns.
    [ 2016.03.21 22:06:20 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "She.. seemed to really click with them. i think it could be good for her and them."
    [ 2016.03.21 22:06:44 ] Aria Jenneth > ... I agree. But she concluded our talk by saying she ought to go back to Deklein for good.
    [ 2016.03.21 22:06:48 ] Aria Jenneth > And ... then cut comms.
    [ 2016.03.21 22:06:52 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote frowns and sighs.
    [ 2016.03.21 22:07:37 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Perhaps.. some areas of discussion might not be useful between you and she.  She.. is very vulnerable and.. will latch onto certain things.  it makes it difficult for the Lady Admiral and I in our work with her ..in helping her grow."
    [ 2016.03.21 22:08:22 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "She has low self-esteem.  I think if an obstacle is posed and it is not..
    [ 2016.03.21 22:08:37 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > space related.  She will cause it to be an immovable road block."
    [ 2016.03.21 22:09:22 ] Aria Jenneth > ... that ... yeah. Probably. I'm sorry, Directrix.
    [ 2016.03.21 22:09:36 ] Aria Jenneth > ... I may have ... served you badly in this.
    [ 2016.03.21 22:11:57 ] Aria Jenneth > She ... seemed certain she could shield them from any consequence. I sketched a scenario in which that would be ... kind of the opposite of true.
    [ 2016.03.21 22:12:02 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote frowns.
    [ 2016.03.21 22:12:05 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "What do you mean?"
    [ 2016.03.21 22:13:03 ] Aria Jenneth > Um. Say, a Holder she offended by brash talk and political stance chooses to move against her through the orphans.
    [ 2016.03.21 22:14:12 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods.
    [ 2016.03.21 22:14:13 ] Aria Jenneth > By having them discreetly poisoned. His identity remains obscure, so he can sit back and watch her wrath blacken her name and everything she represents in the Empire.
    [ 2016.03.21 22:14:24 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote stares at Ali.
    [ 2016.03.21 22:14:28 ] Aria Jenneth > Possibly even leverage her conduct against Admiral Newelle, if he has a mind to.
    [ 2016.03.21 22:14:48 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Good God.  Remind me not to get on your bad side."
    [ 2016.03.21 22:14:52 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Aria..
    [ 2016.03.21 22:15:00 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "As a parent there are always horrible things that can happen."
    [ 2016.03.21 22:16:01 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "You,..learn.. to let that paralyze you.  Or the childrenwill never grow.. and you can't live your life.  I am sure.. "  She sighs. "I will talk to Alizabeth."
    [ 2016.03.21 22:16:26 ] Aria Jenneth > I'm aware, Directrix. My intent was merely to raise her awareness that her actions could carry consequences for those around her-- regardless of her personal power.
    [ 2016.03.21 22:17:19 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "That's common sense.  But.. perhaps framing in those terms given her other issues.. was a problem."
    [ 2016.03.21 22:17:32 ] Aria Jenneth > And that that power, combined with her temper, could be turned against her.
    [ 2016.03.21 22:17:47 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > mMm
    [ 2016.03.21 22:18:35 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "At this point.. let me talk to her." She looks at Aria "And please.. try to be supportive of her.  I am sure.. she will have no trouble considering all the awful things that could  happen." She smiles wryly.. "it sort of.. happens to a parent's mind...
    [ 2016.03.21 22:18:46 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "After a while."
    [ 2016.03.21 22:19:09 ] Aria Jenneth > ... I will. I'm sorry, Directrix.
    [ 2016.03.21 22:19:39 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I don't want to constrain you either.  I .. value an open dialogue between corporation members."
    [ 2016.03.21 22:19:56 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "But.. some people are more susceptible.. to pessism than others.."
    [ 2016.03.21 22:20:00 ] Aria Jenneth > ... well ... but I should try not to say disturbing things that will make trouble.
    [ 2016.03.21 22:20:20 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Well.. always feel free to be 100 percent open with me."
    [ 2016.03.21 22:20:59 ] Aria Jenneth > Thank you, Directrix. I'm ... sorry to be a kind of horrifying person.
    [ 2016.03.21 22:21:03 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "But.. your discretion,internally, is appreciated.  Just like,. with ms. Boma."
    [ 2016.03.21 22:21:21 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "No.. not at all.  I've fretted since day 1 about what could happen to my grandchildren."
    [ 2016.03.21 22:21:29 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "With me.. being so visible."
    [ 2016.03.21 22:22:18 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "being able to imagine the worst, helps you guard against it."
    [ 2016.03.21 22:23:32 ] Aria Jenneth > ... well ... that's a role I'm not terrible at supplementing, I guess.
    [ 2016.03.21 22:24:19 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote releases the comet, with sparkles and then shoots back up into the sky after circling the pair. "It's just a matter of developing a sense of reading how people will react."
    [ 2016.03.21 22:24:35 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "You'll get better.  You are what? Only one year old really..." she smiles wryly.
    [ 2016.03.21 22:25:06 ] Aria Jenneth > ... well ... sort of, Directrix. I did warn her she'd probably find it upsetting.
    [ 2016.03.21 22:25:35 ] Aria Jenneth > .. but ... to Ali, that probably is more like a challenge.
    [ 2016.03.21 22:25:50 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods in agreement.  After a pause "Thank you.  And.. she probably needed to hear it.  But I will try to leaven it.. some."
    [ 2016.03.21 22:27:58 ] Aria Jenneth > *nodnod*
    [ 2016.03.21 22:28:05 ] Aria Jenneth > Thank you, Directrix.
    [ 2016.03.21 22:34:10 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > As for this channel, I'll keep it open all the time now.
    [ 2016.03.21 22:34:28 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Consider this. your private line.  Although on occasion I do use it.. for meetings.
    [ 2016.03.21 22:34:38 ] Aria Jenneth > As you wish, Directrix. I'll maintain my connection. Oh-- Directrix? Um ...
    [ 2016.03.21 22:34:41 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Feel free to remain in such a case."
    [ 2016.03.21 22:35:07 ] Aria Jenneth > Since ... returning, I've been staying away from the Imperial Congregation.
    [ 2016.03.21 22:35:20 ] Aria Jenneth > It seemed ... impolitic ... to impose my presence, or try to.
    [ 2016.03.21 22:35:27 ] Aria Jenneth > I am still really curious, though.
    [ 2016.03.21 22:36:00 ] Aria Jenneth > ... Would ... my presence there, as your retainer, be considered offensive?
    [ 2016.03.21 22:37:27 ] Aria Jenneth > ... I don't wish to make trouble for you.
    [ 2016.03.21 22:37:30 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Unfortunately, it would be."  She also grimces "The channel is virtually unused as it is"
    [ 2016.03.21 22:37:45 ] Aria Jenneth > I see....
    [ 2016.03.21 22:37:54 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "it seems.. most of the Faithful who wish to converse.. use the Good Word now."
    [ 2016.03.21 22:38:35 ] Aria Jenneth > ... well ... but that leaves out some of the more orthodox. And those are the ones I'm both most least-familiar with and most likely to offend by accident.
    [ 2016.03.21 22:39:51 ] Aria Jenneth > ... Is there ... some other strategy that might work?
    [ 2016.03.21 22:41:55 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says "I can bring you to any meetings I have"
    [ 2016.03.21 22:42:44 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > 'I will also ask Lord Pitojee"
    [ 2016.03.21 22:42:58 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "About imperial congregation."
    [ 2016.03.21 22:43:53 ] Aria Jenneth > ... thank you, Directrix.
    [ 2016.03.21 22:44:56 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > I need to tend to some work in the hangars.  Be well Aria
    [ 2016.03.21 22:45:15 ] Aria Jenneth > And you, Directrix.
    [ 2016.03.22 01:31:15 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Perigrinans.  Please note who is sharing our undock.
    [ 2016.03.22 01:31:20 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Crimson Etutanne
    [ 2016.03.22 01:39:43 ] Aria Jenneth > Duly noted, Directrix. ... The appearance seems to suggest association with Ms. Funk.
    [ 2016.03.22 01:43:09 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > I am speaking with Lord Pitoohee now.
    [ 2016.03.22 01:43:33 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > I think I can get you access to the congregation again, provided you do not disparage the Faith in ut.
    [ 2016.03.22 01:44:52 ] Aria Jenneth > ... I ... don't mean to do such a thing, Directrix.
    [ 2016.03.22 01:45:04 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I know. i told him that."
    [ 2016.03.22 01:45:25 ] Aria Jenneth > Thank you. Very much.
    [ 2016.03.22 01:47:13 ] Aria Jenneth > Gods and spirits. I've been convo'ed by Funk, Noh, and Foley.
    [ 2016.03.22 01:47:49 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > I wonder what they are up to.
    [ 2016.03.22 01:48:21 ] Aria Jenneth > Making me an offer, apparently.
    [ 2016.03.22 01:49:17 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > I am curious.  What sort ofoffer?
    [ 2016.03.22 01:49:27 ] Aria Jenneth > Gosakumori Noh > Anya will give you 1,000 TEBS to do with as you will, in exchange for your revisiting your dark blood dream.
    [ 2016.03.22 01:49:41 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote raises an eyebrow.
    [ 2016.03.22 01:49:47 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "What is a TEBS?"
    [ 2016.03.22 01:50:03 ] Aria Jenneth > I suspect it's something related to the recent ... um. Gurista issues.
    [ 2016.03.22 01:50:30 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote wrinkles her nose. "Dealing with them is like dealing with Moloch.  Best use a long spoon or not at all."
    [ 2016.03.22 01:51:30 ] Aria Jenneth > Gosakumori Noh > Developing it fully.  What did it really mean.  Who are you, really.
    [ 2016.03.22 01:52:44 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote frowns.
    [ 2016.03.22 01:53:50 ] Aria Jenneth > Aria Jenneth > ... Um. With respect, pilots ... resources aren't ... really why I do this. I .. am grateful for the offer and opportunity. But ...
    [ 2016.03.22 01:53:56 ] Aria Jenneth > Aria Jenneth > I'm sorry. Really no.
    [ 2016.03.22 01:54:03 ] Aria Jenneth > Aria Jenneth > Please excuse me. Jenneth out.
    [ 2016.03.22 01:56:38 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods with approval.
    [ 2016.03.22 01:56:55 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says quietly, "i don't think anything good can from it..."
    [ 2016.03.22 01:57:09 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "But, this may surprise you.. i accept any comms too.  it's.. useful to know what others are thinking."
    [ 2016.03.22 01:57:14 ] Aria Jenneth > Ms. Noh has ... expressed an interest in that dream before.
    [ 2016.03.22 01:58:19 ] Aria Jenneth > I ... am not actually very surprised, Directrix. Closing doors isn't especially useful as a strategy.
    [ 2016.03.22 01:58:25 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods.
    [ 2016.03.22 01:58:50 ] Aria Jenneth > ... when it comes to ... long-term relations with peers we can't easily be rid of.
    [ 2016.03.22 01:59:59 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods at Aria. "I wish.. some of the other Amarr would understand that."'
    [ 2016.03.22 02:00:11 ] Aria Jenneth > I'm presently at the Grape listening to Sinjin dealing with an idealistic young pirate hunter.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:00:34 ] Aria Jenneth > ... who seems to kind of want to close a door.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:02:57 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > What do you mean, close a door?
    [ 2016.03.22 02:08:29 ] Aria Jenneth > Have nothing to do with him. Which ... I can definitely understand as an initial reaction.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:08:55 ] Aria Jenneth > Also maybe a second and third. But it does cut down on how many social occasions you can attend.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:10:03 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Sort of not following.. I am sorry Aria.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:10:14 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > He is closing doors to himself?
    [ 2016.03.22 02:11:04 ] Aria Jenneth > Um. So. The timing was kind of perfect, actually. I ask  Rassa Loro what he wants to do with his new license. He says hunt pirates.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:11:38 ] Aria Jenneth > He then immediately turns to  Sinjin Mokk , who has just purchased him a glass of wine, and asks what he does.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:12:59 ] Aria Jenneth > Cue polite, confused shock and horror from  Rassa Loro and attempts to find out from his soon-to-be boss  Kaylie Jenn whether they should be talking to such a person.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:21:48 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote simply shakes her head.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:24:03 ] Aria Jenneth > ... I sometimes ... wonder a little why Sinjin seems so fond of the Good Word and the Grape.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:24:11 ] Aria Jenneth > I think he's ... kind of lonely, actually.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:25:35 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I think he is... and.. the further one ventures from Amarr.. forgive me.. the more of a moral desert capsuleerdom seems to be.  Don't get me wrong.. I know it is possible to be moral with other systems of belief. -=c-
    [ 2016.03.22 02:25:45 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "But those exemplars seemto be few these days." she smiles softly.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:27:24 ] Aria Jenneth > ... weird as it seems ... I don't actually think he's a very dark person. More ... um. Restless? ... I might be wrong about that, though.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:28:06 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I am not sure.  he.. is amoral when it comes to slavery.  he is khanid."
    [ 2016.03.22 02:28:59 ] Aria Jenneth > *nodnod*
    [ 2016.03.22 02:31:24 ] Aria Jenneth > Or ... was. Considering the ... fall of his house, I ... suspect the Cartel will be his ... nationality for the foreseeable future, Directrix.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:32:12 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Unfortunate. I did think.. he had potential as an asset of the Empire."
    [ 2016.03.22 02:32:37 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I.. was heartened by his declaration of loyalty to the Empress last spring"
    [ 2016.03.22 02:33:12 ] Aria Jenneth > ... *nodnod* I do ... unfortunately think he has kind of a Cartel officer's instincts, though, Directrix, wherever he ... acquired them.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:33:47 ] Aria Jenneth > He's the one who proposed offering me as a ... um. Bride to Nauplius. He thought it was a really great idea.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:34:31 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote grimaces "God save us"
    [ 2016.03.22 03:07:40 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Well.. the Lady Admiral is approving the adopting with some.. conditions. This will be interesting."
    [ 2016.03.22 03:07:58 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > I.. am glad to be able to try to do well by the children...
    [ 2016.03.22 03:08:22 ] Aria Jenneth > *nodnod*
    [ 2016.03.22 03:08:41 ] Aria Jenneth > Is there ... anything I can do, Directrix? Other than not ... saying other strange things to Ali....
    [ 2016.03.22 03:10:40 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "At this time. i don't think so."
    [ 2016.03.22 03:14:40 ] Aria Jenneth > Okay.
    [ 2016.03.22 03:21:25 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote picks up what seems to be a flat stone from the ground.  She throws it so it skips across the rings of the gas giant, with sparks and puffs material as it goes.
    [ 2016.03.22 03:21:51 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote chuckles "Sorry.. i can't resist.  I made.. this.. to remind me of girlhood dreams of space"
    [ 2016.03.22 03:23:14 ] Aria Jenneth > ... it's ... a beautiful sort of place, Directrix.
    [ 2016.03.22 03:23:43 ] Aria Jenneth > *her avatar is mostly still-- and dressed almost exactly as she was at the recent ceremony, complete with dagger*
    [ 2016.03.22 03:29:55 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says "Good night,"
    [ 2016.03.22 03:30:06 ] Aria Jenneth > Good night, Directrix.
    [ 2016.03.22 03:30:13 ] Aria Jenneth > Please sleep well.

    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.

    [ 2016.03.22 01:48:54 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote re-enters. She is still dressed in a business like way, as her meeting with Utari earlier, wearing a white business suit with an ankle length skirt. She takes a seat inside this time.
    [ 2016.03.22 01:50:16 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote finds the cafe and is wearing her PIE uniform. She pauses a moment at the entrance at the outside.
    [ 2016.03.22 01:51:12 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote mutters something to herself and enters the cafe proper.
    [ 2016.03.22 01:51:54 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says "Can I get you a coffee, the Ni kunni blend is quite good, as are the pastries from Mishi" she rises.
    [ 2016.03.22 01:52:58 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote nods to Luna, "Salve, an no, no thank you." * Mitara says stiffly.
    [ 2016.03.22 01:53:34 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods. "I'd prefer the Grape, but.. this is what's here." She shrugs. "I appreciate your time, always."
    [ 2016.03.22 01:54:03 ] Mitara Newelle > This will do, and as you say, it is here.
    [ 2016.03.22 01:54:20 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I am.. sort of stuck here for a few more days." She wrinkles her nose.
    [ 2016.03.22 01:54:32 ] Mitara Newelle > Oh? Why is that?
    [ 2016.03.22 01:54:34 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "No, offense,. The 24th IC station is lovely.. but I'd rather be running my routes."
    [ 2016.03.22 01:54:41 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "We are under a wardec from PIRAT
    [ 2016.03.22 01:54:59 ] Mitara Newelle > Ah... seems that have been making the rounds.
    [ 2016.03.22 01:55:11 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I have spent my week trying to bolster the market here. 4 billion isk of material has been placed in the market to support the Militia."
    [ 2016.03.22 01:55:31 ] Mitara Newelle > That is excellent, and appreciated.
    [ 2016.03.22 01:56:08 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "My colleague is likewise marooned in Myyera. he has also bolstered the market there. We now have offices here and there for that purpose."
    [ 2016.03.22 01:56:49 ] Mitara Newelle > I wish you well in your business ventures.
    [ 2016.03.22 01:57:33 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote smirks, "Don't go spending your broker commission from me all in one place now."
    [ 2016.03.22 01:57:41 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote chuckles.
    [ 2016.03.22 01:58:04 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Unfortunately Nauplius has also bought from me. I am tempted to tell him to see if he self-destructs his ship"
    [ 2016.03.22 01:58:32 ] Mitara Newelle > An interesting tactic... that just may work.
    [ 2016.03.22 01:58:48 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "A pity market orders can't be limited to blues only." She sighs "But 90 percent are Amarr militia as buyers"
    [ 2016.03.22 01:59:08 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says "Although I wonder if Citadels.. might change that." her eyes sparkle.
    [ 2016.03.22 01:59:26 ] Mitara Newelle > Soon... I believe the new citadel structures you can limit access to your market hubs
    [ 2016.03.22 01:59:43 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:00:49 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Enough of that." she chukles. "The reason I asked to meet, was I did met the orphans and they are procured. But ..I know you wanted to decide whether my alternative adopter was feasible."
    [ 2016.03.22 02:01:21 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > 'They are lovely children, and quite faithful. I am sure they will grow up to be fine citizens of the Empire. if you want to interview them I can arrange for that."
    [ 2016.03.22 02:01:28 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote nods slowly and sits at Luna's table
    [ 2016.03.22 02:02:09 ] Mitara Newelle > Let us talk of Alizebeth's wishes.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:02:18 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "The potentual adopter is one of your retainers, Alizabeth Vea, who.. pushed me to find them after she also heard the same story and evidence, I did. They did meet and seemed to click.. but.." she nods realized Mitty seems to know already.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:02:31 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emotelooks a little nonplussed but gives a quick smile.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:03:12 ] Mitara Newelle > There was some rapport there?
    [ 2016.03.22 02:03:28 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Quite. I.. was surprised by the chemistry."
    [ 2016.03.22 02:04:13 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote nods.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:04:52 ] Mitara Newelle > I wish you to speak frankly, Directrix... What is your opinion of Alizabeth?
    [ 2016.03.22 02:05:37 ] Mitara Newelle > She has spent more time among you and your people than I
    [ 2016.03.22 02:05:40 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I think she is on the road to the Faith. Being new.. she is obviously vulnerable. She has contributed much already for a new member of our community, both at the trials and against the Drifters."
    [ 2016.03.22 02:06:33 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "She also fc'ed at least one of the expeditons against the Butcher. Her courage is not in doubt"
    [ 2016.03.22 02:07:26 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I do worry her faith might be easily shaken. I think.. she needs a foundation upon which to rest. We both grew up in the Empire. We have myriad family ties and experiences."
    [ 2016.03.22 02:07:34 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote nods, "Yes, I have little to doubt in her skills as a capsuleer... But moreso, how strong in her faith do you feel she really is?
    [ 2016.03.22 02:07:38 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > 'A lifetime of Faith"
    [ 2016.03.22 02:08:05 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote nods, "This is my concern as well."
    [ 2016.03.22 02:08:16 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I confess... I am hoping that if she adopts the orphans and takes seriously her duty to raise theem as citizens of the Empire and of the Faith.. it will give her some grounding."
    [ 2016.03.22 02:09:02 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "if .. she departs the Empire for CFC ".. I'd insist I'd be the Godmother and take over custody. No matter what happened to their mother.. -c-"
    [ 2016.03.22 02:09:25 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "The Children have been blessed with an opportunity to grow fully as ni _kunni citizens, free citizens of the Empire."
    [ 2016.03.22 02:09:45 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote smiles at Mitara.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:10:05 ] Mitara Newelle > This is what I wish for them as well.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:10:45 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Did you have a chance to speak to her already?"
    [ 2016.03.22 02:11:09 ] Mitara Newelle > What makes you think if she were to decide to leave the Empire that she would be willing to give them up to you... even as their Godmother?
    [ 2016.03.22 02:11:18 ] Mitara Newelle > I have spoken with her, yes.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:11:49 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote gives Mitara a glance, trying not to show her uncertainty, given Mitty's comments so far. "What did you think?"
    [ 2016.03.22 02:12:20 ] Mitara Newelle > I think she is looking forward to building a home in the Holding.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:13:15 ] Mitara Newelle > But she also has some very paranoid thoughts.... of Holders trying to poison children... should their caregivers step beyond their place.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:13:38 ] Mitara Newelle > Ideas, I might add, that seem to have been placed there by your visitor, Ms Jenneth.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:14:18 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says "I.. have had a length chat with Ms. Jenneth. Who.. meant well.. but... " she shakes her head. "She.. lacks tact or a sense of moderation sometimes."
    [ 2016.03.22 02:14:34 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says softly "As a parent.. i admit I dreamed a million scenarios..."
    [ 2016.03.22 02:14:51 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > of what could go wrong. of what I needed to protect my children frim.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:15:12 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Alizabeth needs to know... and be able to manage that.. natural worry." She sighs.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:17:00 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I.. do plan to talk to Alizabeth."
    [ 2016.03.22 02:17:38 ] Mitara Newelle > Yes. She also conflates those rare Holders who take advantage of their position, and abuse their power... and property... with all Amarrians.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:17:59 ] Mitara Newelle > These types of thoughts worry me.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:18:08 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I know. Something I have tried to talk to Alizabeth about. In the state there are CEO's that are corrupt."
    [ 2016.03.22 02:18:38 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "As.. a former paladin.. i've seen human nature. To think it is exclusive to us.. is a mistake. But we have.. scripture, the MIO and the Council to try to guide us."
    [ 2016.03.22 02:18:52 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Clergy to give moral advice."
    [ 2016.03.22 02:19:32 ] Mitara Newelle > Yes... My biggest worry... or concern... is she is not grasping the essence of the Faith, of servititude..
    [ 2016.03.22 02:19:38 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "And those rare Holders are punished."
    [ 2016.03.22 02:19:41 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:20:29 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote nods, "I have told her those types of people are shunned by all proper Amarr."
    [ 2016.03.22 02:20:49 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "When one has never needed to care for someone else... how can you know servitude? The greatest servant is a parent. They have.. a duty that surpasses little except for the heirs, Holders responsible for their charges, or the Empress"
    [ 2016.03.22 02:21:20 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods at Mitara "I agree. I also.. hoped..' she says quietly "this might help her grow in the characteristics needed for the Faith"
    [ 2016.03.22 02:21:49 ] Mitara Newelle > I think it could as well...
    [ 2016.03.22 02:22:08 ] Mitara Newelle > But back to one of my earlier questions.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:22:15 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "But.. myLady.. as they are yours to free and to choose who is to adopt.. I think.. you should lay down ground rules."
    [ 2016.03.22 02:22:22 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I'd.. try to reinforce them"
    [ 2016.03.22 02:23:06 ] Mitara Newelle > They will be freed, that is without question.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:23:40 ] Mitara Newelle > Your position as Godmother, what power will that hold over her should she try and leave?
    [ 2016.03.22 02:24:22 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I. think she is a woman of her word. if she understands that she is making a promise when she recieves them.. I pray she would honor that. I am her CEO.. but if she leaves I would not. I would have to rely on her word." She looks at Mitara.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:24:32 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "She kept her word in the trials.. and those were not an easy test or a brief time"
    [ 2016.03.22 02:25:39 ] Mitara Newelle > Indeed, they were not easy... But they were brief compared to the lifetime of a family.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:25:52 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:26:02 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote rubs her nose deep in thought
    [ 2016.03.22 02:26:14 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "If she is not given a chance to grow, she never will. it is through Duty god shapes us and we are formed, I heard a clergyman tell me"
    [ 2016.03.22 02:26:37 ] Mitara Newelle > I want to give her that opportunity as well.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:27:33 ] Mitara Newelle > Yet.... one does not dub a heathen who steps foot in a cathedral a priest.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:28:20 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote furrows her brow, "I care deeply about her..."
    [ 2016.03.22 02:28:34 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "She has been baptized, I believe. She is not a heathen.. but.. is a new growth, yes"
    [ 2016.03.22 02:29:11 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I defer to you, Milady. I've stated my reasons. And if you do not let her adopt.. I would like to."
    [ 2016.03.22 02:29:36 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote leans back in her seat, mulling over possibilities.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:30:33 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "One matter you may nt have considered"
    [ 2016.03.22 02:30:46 ] Mitara Newelle > Hm?
    [ 2016.03.22 02:30:50 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "The children.. have had a poor experience of it.. even if rare as you say":
    [ 2016.03.22 02:31:05 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I am concerned.. they would not be as receptive.. to someone more .. clearly.. well.. of the Empire."
    [ 2016.03.22 02:31:41 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "But she is ofthe faith and affiliated with you and with the Society. It may.. be a way to show them a way back if she commits to what you think is needed."
    [ 2016.03.22 02:31:42 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote nods slowly, her expression showing more weight of her decision.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:33:01 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote sips her coffee, having said her piece.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:33:18 ] Mitara Newelle > The last thing I want is for these children to be ferried off to some rim system, surround by heathens and God knows what else.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:33:25 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:33:46 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote looks at Luna and begins to smile.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:34:02 ] Mitara Newelle > I believe I have an idea.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:34:24 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote tilts her head slightly, placing her coffee back down.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:35:21 ] Mitara Newelle > The children are freed... and become wards of Damnidios Para’nashu.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:35:36 ] Mitara Newelle > They can be placed in her care.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:35:45 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Who is she?"
    [ 2016.03.22 02:36:07 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote chuckles, "My apologies, that is the name of my Holding."
    [ 2016.03.22 02:36:13 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods. "Oh"
    [ 2016.03.22 02:36:36 ] Mitara Newelle > And if all goes well after a time, she can adopt them as her own
    [ 2016.03.22 02:36:43 ] Mitara Newelle > With you as Godmother, of course.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:36:52 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods. "I.. like that idea."
    [ 2016.03.22 02:37:56 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote nods, looking relieved at finding a solution she is happy with.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:38:17 ] Mitara Newelle > Yes. I think that is how we should proceed.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:38:32 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "With the condition also that she is not to.. take them out to Deklein. In such a case..I need to step in, I'd imagine?"
    [ 2016.03.22 02:38:37 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:38:54 ] Mitara Newelle > Yes.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:39:34 ] Mitara Newelle > I think once we reach the point of proper adoption, that will no longer be a concern.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:39:39 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:40:48 ] Mitara Newelle > I shall begin the process as soon as I can then.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:40:50 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I.. apreciate your consideration and aid in all this. and. I know it will be good for the children to have the ward.. tie"
    [ 2016.03.22 02:41:35 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote nods, "I want what is best for them all."
    [ 2016.03.22 02:41:47 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Since.. you'be already spoken to her.. and the conditions and requirements are yours.. as they will be your ward. Do you want to talk toher?"
    [ 2016.03.22 02:42:20 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote drums her fingers on the table a moment.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:43:18 ] Mitara Newelle > I think it would be something we could do together, along with the children... if you don't mind?
    [ 2016.03.22 02:43:37 ] Mitara Newelle > You are playing a large part in this arrangement as well
    [ 2016.03.22 02:44:08 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "That would be good." she nods.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:44:18 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Can you do it Wednesday night? The sooner the better for the children I think"
    [ 2016.03.22 02:45:02 ] Mitara Newelle > Possibly, there is something usually on my calendar, but it's likely to be cancelled this week.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:45:18 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:45:43 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "if not.. i am also free Friday night. " she looks down "I am.. on a religious retreat Thursday night"
    [ 2016.03.22 02:46:30 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote nods, "We shall schedule it as soon as possible."
    [ 2016.03.22 02:47:43 ] Mitara Newelle > On another matter... a quick one mind you.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:47:47 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:48:08 ] Mitara Newelle > SFRIM's comm channel 'The Good Word.'
    [ 2016.03.22 02:48:33 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods. "I see you have finally visited. Admirals Lok'ri and Ascentior have long been visitors."
    [ 2016.03.22 02:48:35 ] Mitara Newelle > I have heard conflicting descriptions of it's purpose, so wanted to get it straight from you
    [ 2016.03.22 02:49:00 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "It has three purposes to be frank. Two are stated in the MOTD."
    [ 2016.03.22 02:49:33 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "The first purpose is it is our diplomatic and recruitment channel. It is the only public SFRIM channel."
    [ 2016.03.22 02:49:50 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote nods.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:50:11 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "The second purposeis.. to try to spread the Good Word to those who might not otherwise hear it. And to do so in an environment more controlled than the Summit or Concord's IGS where.. we are likely to be shouted down or ridiculed."
    [ 2016.03.22 02:51:05 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "The late Empress.. has askedus to try,..other means of Reclaiming.. consider it our experiment in that regard. Consequently.. it.. will include those who are not.. necessarily... on our side. They wouldn't need to be reclaimed otherwise"
    [ 2016.03.22 02:51:23 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "As long as they are civil and do not openly expouse heretical concepts, they are welcome."
    [ 2016.03.22 02:51:34 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > 'I have banned Sani Sabik who have shown they are not interested in that."
    [ 2016.03.22 02:52:08 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote nods, "I see."
    [ 2016.03.22 02:52:49 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says "The Third.. " she shrugs slightly "is a little realpolitik on my part... -c-
    [ 2016.03.22 02:53:39 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "By.. alllowing general chatter, as long as the basic channel rules are followed.. I get to know.. what people are doing. if they are willing to come to my channel and give me a window... that is free intelligene I can adjust my operations to."
    [ 2016.03.22 02:53:57 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I try to avoid the summit as much as possible. The.. worst of them are kept off the Good Word."
    [ 2016.03.22 02:55:32 ] Mitara Newelle > Yes, the Summit is... well. Putrid.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:55:33 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "We.. are different than PIE. We are not strictly a Military organization. We.. are trying to explore other ways to effectively Reclaim in accord with the Empress"
    [ 2016.03.22 02:55:38 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Bless her soul"
    [ 2016.03.22 02:56:52 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote nods, "I can see the gains to be had, but yes, it is not something I would condone PIE participating in for it's own channels."
    [ 2016.03.22 02:57:12 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I do understand that PIE Public has a diferent set of rules."
    [ 2016.03.22 02:57:32 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Which is approproate. I will say.. PIE Pilots havebeen effective explainers of the Faith when they visit the Good Word."
    [ 2016.03.22 02:57:39 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Such as Sir Shutaq."
    [ 2016.03.22 02:57:50 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote smirks, "That does not surprise me."
    [ 2016.03.22 02:57:52 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote amends... "Lord Shutaq." she blushes.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:58:12 ] Mitara Newelle > I will leave that to those better equipped in dealing with the heathens than I.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:58:30 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > ""I.. do have a lengthy banned list." she says wryly.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:58:44 ] Mitara Newelle > It is an adjustment for us as well, Directrix.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:58:46 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "So be assured.. i take seriously being consistent with what i have described to you"
    [ 2016.03.22 02:58:48 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods.
    [ 2016.03.22 02:58:51 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote chuckles lightly
    [ 2016.03.22 02:59:54 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "toiling in the fields as the clergy say...I just hope we get harvest in due time."
    [ 2016.03.22 03:00:11 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote simply nods, "Indeed."
    [ 2016.03.22 03:00:33 ] Mitara Newelle > I appreciate your input with Alizabeth and the children... I look forward to meeting them.
    [ 2016.03.22 03:01:44 ] Mitara Newelle > I must take my leave for now, however.
    [ 2016.03.22 03:01:48 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Thank you Admiral. And.. if the channelis a discomfort to you. I will not be offended if you leave it. I do ask.. respectfully.. that those PIE pilots able to effective advocates and catechists be allowed to remain."
    [ 2016.03.22 03:01:48 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote rises
    [ 2016.03.22 03:01:56 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote rises quickly. She curtseys.
    [ 2016.03.22 03:03:38 ] Mitara Newelle > I see no reason to stop them from doing such given what you have told me about what you wish to accomplish with it.
    [ 2016.03.22 03:03:49 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote nods to Luna, "Go with God, Directrix."

    The Holy Grape

    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."

    [ 2016.03.23 01:53:29 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote wanders in to the Grape, taking a seat at the bar. She sighs and orders some tea.
    [ 2016.03.23 01:54:58 ] Vincentjstiles > /emote walks in, looking around the room as he makes his way to the bar stool, noding to all who sees him in greetings, he sits at the bar, adjusting his vest on his bare back with his pair of robotic arms*
    [ 2016.03.23 01:57:19 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote glances over, her armor whirring as she sips the tea.
    [ 2016.03.23 01:57:48 ] Vincentjstiles > /emote nods with a smile as he orders a drink
    [ 2016.03.23 02:00:09 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote places a golden crown on the counter and spins it, watching what it falls on. She does it again.
    [ 2016.03.23 02:08:18 ] Vincentjstiles > /emote watches the crown rotate
    [ 2016.03.23 02:12:06 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote sighs and does it one more time before sitting her tea
    [ 2016.03.23 02:35:41 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote starts to order a whiskey, stops, gets a new pot of tea.
    [ 2016.03.23 03:07:17 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote sighs, spins the crown coin again.
    [ 2016.03.23 03:09:05 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote enters the Grape wearing an elegant Sarum red and gold abaya.
    [ 2016.03.23 03:09:56 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote smiles slightly as she sees Ali and approachs
    [ 2016.03.23 03:10:36 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote is in her armor suit, a sarum red cloak draped across her shoulders. She glances up to Mitara and stands, bowing. "Salve, my lady."
    [ 2016.03.23 03:10:48 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote enters. She smiles as she asees Ali and Mitara.
    [ 2016.03.23 03:11:11 ] Mitara Newelle > Salve, sister. What is that you have there * she points towards the coin.
    [ 2016.03.23 03:11:53 ] Alizabeth Vea > "A crown, my lady. Like my mother used to say, if you are having a hard time making up your mind, flip a coin."
    [ 2016.03.23 03:12:18 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote nods, "Ah. Fair enough."
    [ 2016.03.23 03:13:14 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote frowns as she is suddenly summoned to the Lamp and her Corp HQ.
    [ 2016.03.23 03:13:18 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote departs.
    [ 2016.03.23 03:13:24 ] Alizabeth Vea > " 'If you do so, and you don't like the result, then you already know what your decision should be.' "
    [ 2016.03.23 03:14:09 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote tilts her head slightly, "But if you already know what choice you prefer, what is the point in flipping the coin?"
    [ 2016.03.23 03:14:52 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Sometimes, you don't know until you do." she smirls mirthlessly.
    [ 2016.03.23 03:15:01 ] Alizabeth Vea > smiles*
    [ 2016.03.23 03:16:17 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote shrugs and chuckles lightly.
    [ 2016.03.23 03:16:28 ] Mitara Newelle > Are you hungry, sister?
    [ 2016.03.23 03:17:04 ] Mitara Newelle > I have offered those who I know that participated in driving out the Drifter assassins a dinner of their choosing.
    [ 2016.03.23 03:20:51 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Oh." she blinks. "I would, uh, accept then." she smiles.
    [ 2016.03.23 03:21:51 ] Mitara Newelle > What would you have then?
    [ 2016.03.23 03:23:22 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Something not bugs."
    [ 2016.03.23 03:24:57 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote raises a brow, "Setting the bar rather high I see."
    [ 2016.03.23 03:25:06 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote clears her throat and chuckles.
    [ 2016.03.23 03:26:49 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Sorry. I know that's traditional Ni-Kunni. I just . . . do not like it."
    [ 2016.03.23 03:27:26 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote leans in towards Ali a bit, "I understand perfectly."
    [ 2016.03.23 03:27:44 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote smirks. "So, whatever you serve would be fine."
    [ 2016.03.23 03:28:58 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote lets out a laugh, "Oh? You would like me to prepare something? And you say you had nightmares of the Drifters...."
    [ 2016.03.23 03:29:35 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote looks off with a smirk, "I will see what I can come up with."
    [ 2016.03.23 03:30:31 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Well, you or your staff, or Lord Consort Newelle, I guess. I don't know."
    [ 2016.03.23 03:31:19 ] Vincentjstiles > /emote sips his drink
    [ 2016.03.23 03:32:20 ] Mitara Newelle > I have spent some time learning to prepare some meals that both Lord Newelle and myself can stomach.
    [ 2016.03.23 03:32:41 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Well, I guess a holder doesn't cook. You have staff, right?"
    [ 2016.03.23 03:32:45 ] Mitara Newelle > Let me get back to you then, if that is alright?
    [ 2016.03.23 03:33:10 ] Mitara Newelle > I do have staff, but the dinner is of your choosing. If you would like me to prepare it, I shall.
    [ 2016.03.23 03:33:45 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I wouldn't ask of such a thing."
    [ 2016.03.23 03:34:17 ] Mitara Newelle > It is perfectly acceptable, I just had not considered anyone requesting it.
    [ 2016.03.23 03:36:52 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I will let you decide, sister."
    [ 2016.03.23 03:37:47 ] Mitara Newelle > That is not my offer. It is for you to decide.
    [ 2016.03.23 03:38:00 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote smiles politely, "Think on it."
    [ 2016.03.23 03:38:48 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I just did. Whichever you feel is best is my answer." she grins a bit.
    [ 2016.03.23 03:39:28 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote sighs and shakes her head slowly, "Very well."
    [ 2016.03.23 03:39:56 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Join me for tea?"
    [ 2016.03.23 03:40:13 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote nods, "Ceratainly."
    [ 2016.03.23 03:41:15 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote sits at Ali's table.
    [ 2016.03.23 03:41:54 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote sits back down at the bar. "It's a Caldari blend. Nothing too strong. Not poisonous. I keep that blend in a safe." she says with a smirk. "I think you will like it."
    [ 2016.03.23 03:43:55 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote orders another cup and pours the tea for Mitara. "I want to apologize for my remarks the other day."
    [ 2016.03.23 03:44:52 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote orders a side of Potato Puree, and says to Ali "Pardon me, I hope you don't mind, I did come in for a bit to eat."
    [ 2016.03.23 03:45:19 ] Mitara Newelle > Oh?
    [ 2016.03.23 03:46:24 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote smells a the teas aroma, "It is mild, yes?"
    [ 2016.03.23 03:47:55 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Oh, of course." she says to the food remark. "Eating for two and all. Are you sure you should not get something more substantial?"
    [ 2016.03.23 03:48:30 ] Mitara Newelle > I'm sorry, what was that?
    [ 2016.03.23 03:48:50 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Maybe steak or something?"
    [ 2016.03.23 03:49:44 ] Mitara Newelle > No, I just wanted something mild and not too heavy at the moment...
    [ 2016.03.23 03:50:46 ] Mitara Newelle > But what about eating for two?
    [ 2016.03.23 03:52:27 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote nods slowly and sips her tea. "Sorry, is that secret?"
    [ 2016.03.23 03:55:22 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I would have assumed you would know, at least."
    [ 2016.03.23 04:03:22 ] Mitara Newelle > I like to keep my personal affairs to myself... until such a time of my choosing for it to be known.
    [ 2016.03.23 04:04:02 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I will keep it to myself. Apologies. And get better armor, or at least a passive ECM suite."
    [ 2016.03.23 04:04:21 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote raises a questioning brow.
    [ 2016.03.23 04:05:47 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote sips her tea. "Of course I do not think that all holders would poison children just to get at me. I even doubt that most would."
    [ 2016.03.23 04:07:06 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote tests the tea, taking a small sip.
    [ 2016.03.23 04:07:28 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote nods a bit and takes a full sip
    [ 2016.03.23 04:07:42 ] Mitara Newelle > Well that is good to hear.
    [ 2016.03.23 04:08:34 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I am concerned though . . . after talking to Aria about . . . things. I don't know if I am the best choice for them. Hence the coin. But I don't like the tails outcome."
    [ 2016.03.23 04:09:54 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote mixes the creme fraiche in her potato puree after the wait staff sets it before her.
    [ 2016.03.23 04:10:13 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote looks at Ali sharply, "Aria? Jenneth?"
    [ 2016.03.23 04:10:25 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Yes, Ms. Jenneth, sorry."
    [ 2016.03.23 04:11:01 ] Mitara Newelle > I do would not put much in anything she may have to say.
    [ 2016.03.23 04:12:15 ] Mitara Newelle > Why Directrix Daphiti allows....
    [ 2016.03.23 04:12:24 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote shakes her head.
    [ 2016.03.23 04:12:29 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote nods slowly. "I think she hopes Ms. Jenneth will come to the faith."
    [ 2016.03.23 04:13:12 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote composes herself a bit, "Yes. I am sure that is it."
    [ 2016.03.23 04:14:42 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote sighs. "Still. I worry."
    [ 2016.03.23 04:14:52 ] Mitara Newelle > Just be wary of Ms Jenneth, sister.
    [ 2016.03.23 04:15:25 ] Mitara Newelle > About?
    [ 2016.03.23 04:15:40 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote takes a few bites of her potato
    [ 2016.03.23 04:15:52 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Whether I am the right person to adopt Alqamar's children."
    [ 2016.03.23 04:16:47 ] Mitara Newelle > What did she say to you?
    [ 2016.03.23 04:17:35 ] Alizabeth Vea > "That I was nothing in Amarr, just a pawn and the children would be pawns, too."
    [ 2016.03.23 04:19:33 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote smirks, "I don't think appreciates what kind of fame you do have. Or is just jealous of it."
    [ 2016.03.23 04:19:40 ] Mitara Newelle > think she*
    [ 2016.03.23 04:20:13 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote pauses. "Just . . . what is my place. I know you want me to be your servant."
    [ 2016.03.23 04:21:03 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote takes another bite of her potato and sits back.
    [ 2016.03.23 04:21:48 ] Mitara Newelle > I see your place being a key figure in the Holding you helped make possible.
    [ 2016.03.23 04:21:58 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote listens.
    [ 2016.03.23 04:23:25 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I always assumed I was one step above a slave. Which is why I assumed I was a good fit to adopt them. No drastic social changes. I mean, I'm phenominally wealthy, but beyond that . . ."
    [ 2016.03.23 04:24:15 ] Mitara Newelle > There are numerous wealthy commoners that wield more real power than some Holders.
    [ 2016.03.23 04:24:36 ] Mitara Newelle > Of course social decorum must still be upheld
    [ 2016.03.23 04:25:41 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote nods slowly. "That came up to. That my wealth would bring them into social circles with the nobility, that would then hate them. Which would put them in danger."
    [ 2016.03.23 04:26:27 ] Mitara Newelle > There are some that will resent His Highness' blessing, but there are many who seek to be our allies as well.
    [ 2016.03.23 04:27:06 ] Mitara Newelle > My understanding is that this appointment has caused quite a stir.
    [ 2016.03.23 04:27:25 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I suppose so."
    [ 2016.03.23 04:27:51 ] Mitara Newelle > There were few Ni-Kunni Holders to begin with, and for one to be granted one on Mekhios is... well, a powerful statement.
    [ 2016.03.23 04:28:07 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Of what?"
    [ 2016.03.23 04:29:31 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote smiles a bit, "I wish I could say. Though from what Lord Newelle speaks, it has been inspiring to the masses."
    [ 2016.03.23 04:30:07 ] Alizabeth Vea > "So . . . what am I then? You're a holder . . . I'm just a servant?"
    [ 2016.03.23 04:32:07 ] Mitara Newelle > Don't think it's been lost that a reclaimed Caldari, and someone new to the Fatih - you - were instrumental.
    [ 2016.03.23 04:32:44 ] Alizabeth Vea > "And our loss. I am sure I get blamed for that wrap it, still."
    [ 2016.03.23 04:33:17 ] Mitara Newelle > Hope, dear sister, I think, is the word that best describes the heartbeat of Amarr at this moment.
    [ 2016.03.23 04:34:17 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Hope."
    [ 2016.03.23 04:34:35 ] Mitara Newelle > There will always be some who claim they would have done better, or this or that. It was God's Will that His Highness not take the Throne. We must be content in that, and look forward to our new ruler.
    [ 2016.03.23 04:35:32 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote nods slowly.
    [ 2016.03.23 04:36:42 ] Alizabeth Vea > "But what am I?"
    [ 2016.03.23 04:37:23 ] Mitara Newelle > It is my hope you shall be a Retainer to the Holder of Damnidios Para’nashu.
    [ 2016.03.23 04:37:40 ] Alizabeth Vea > "And what does that mean?"
    [ 2016.03.23 04:38:30 ] Mitara Newelle > For what you are now, is one of the most influencial foreigners in Domain.
    [ 2016.03.23 04:38:47 ] Mitara Newelle > But still something of an outsider.
    [ 2016.03.23 04:38:58 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote sincerely hopes Mitty will actually tell her what it means, cause she still has no idea.
    [ 2016.03.23 04:40:08 ] Mitara Newelle > It means below myself and Lord Shutaq, you will be looked to as one of the highest authorites in the Holding.
    [ 2016.03.23 04:40:26 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote blinks. "Like a director."
    [ 2016.03.23 04:40:54 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote nods finding that very appropriate.
    [ 2016.03.23 04:41:10 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Why didn't you just say so! I'll accept that."
    [ 2016.03.23 04:41:31 ] Mitara Newelle > The analogy never occurred to me honestly.
    [ 2016.03.23 04:41:55 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote sighs, exasperated.
    [ 2016.03.23 04:42:36 ] Alizabeth Vea > "So, director of what?"
    [ 2016.03.23 04:42:46 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Writing?"
    [ 2016.03.23 04:43:14 ] Mitara Newelle > We have had some conversations over this... Yes, that was one of the duties I had in mind for you.
    [ 2016.03.23 04:43:33 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Director of Propaganda. I like it."
    [ 2016.03.23 04:43:55 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote clears her throat, "That is not the offical title."
    [ 2016.03.23 04:44:18 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote rolls her eyes and chuckles lightly, "Caldari..."
    [ 2016.03.23 04:44:32 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Oh. Well, I mean, you can call it whatever, right?" she giggles. "That's more of a Goon perspective."
    [ 2016.03.23 04:46:21 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote throws her hands up slightly, surrendering to this Good she calls sister.
    [ 2016.03.23 04:46:37 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote smirks and has another bite of potato
    [ 2016.03.23 04:46:43 ] Mitara Newelle > Goon*
    [ 2016.03.23 04:47:19 ] Alizabeth Vea > "You know, it's odd. Politically speaking, I think that I might be more experienced than you. Just having operated in null sec at the levels I did."
    [ 2016.03.23 04:47:21 ] Mitara Newelle > About the children.
    [ 2016.03.23 04:47:30 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote stops. "Yes?"
    [ 2016.03.23 04:47:42 ] Mitara Newelle > If this is something you are uncertain of, you need to tell me now.
    [ 2016.03.23 04:48:20 ] Mitara Newelle > It is not a decision to be taken lightly.
    [ 2016.03.23 04:48:25 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote spins the coin. It lands on tails. Ali slaps it, turns it over to the profile of Empress Jamyl. "I'm sure."
    [ 2016.03.23 04:49:30 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote takes a drink of tea, "Was that neccessary?"
    [ 2016.03.23 04:50:00 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I think that if I am to become a mother, I should remember mine."
    [ 2016.03.23 04:50:17 ] Mitara Newelle > What do you mean?
    [ 2016.03.23 04:51:27 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Remember? Flipping the coin was her idiom."
    [ 2016.03.23 04:53:29 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote wrinkles her nose at Ali, "I do not recall Her Majesty ever flipping a coin."
    [ 2016.03.23 04:53:51 ] Alizabeth Vea > "My mother. Not Empress Jamyl."
    [ 2016.03.23 04:54:00 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I'm not a tube child."
    [ 2016.03.23 04:54:37 ] Mitara Newelle > No, I do not remember you speaking of her.
    [ 2016.03.23 04:54:53 ] Mitara Newelle > THough it could just be escaping me at the moment.
    [ 2016.03.23 04:55:15 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I told you when you first came in. That my mother told me if you had a hard time deciding to flip a coin."
    [ 2016.03.23 04:56:05 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote nods, blushing slightly, "Ah yes.
    [ 2016.03.23 04:56:52 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Drink more tea. It improves memory."
    [ 2016.03.23 04:56:57 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote takes a slow sip of her tea, her eyes distant."
    [ 2016.03.23 04:57:34 ] Mitara Newelle > I can use the assistance, there is so much to be done.
    [ 2016.03.23 04:58:08 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote sets the tea aside and lowers her head.
    [ 2016.03.23 04:58:48 ] Alizabeth Vea > "You can always ask my help, you know that."
    [ 2016.03.23 04:59:07 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote closes her eyes and quietly says a prayer.
    [ 2016.03.23 04:59:42 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote shuts up.
    [ 2016.03.23 04:59:51 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote takes a deep breath.
    [ 2016.03.23 05:00:13 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote raises her head and smiles slightly at Ali, "I intend to."
    [ 2016.03.23 05:01:58 ] Alizabeth Vea > "That doesn't sound ominous at all."
    [ 2016.03.23 05:02:02 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote clears her throat and has several bites of her potato
    [ 2016.03.23 05:02:46 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote grins.
    [ 2016.03.23 05:04:26 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Thank you for freeing them, by the way. I met them and they are both great, just really super kids."
    [ 2016.03.23 05:04:26 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote rubs an eye, while taking another deep breath, and manages a returning grin back at Ali, "Oh it wasn't meant anything of the sort."
    [ 2016.03.23 05:05:26 ] Mitara Newelle > It was the propert thing to do, I look forward to meeting them.
    [ 2016.03.23 05:06:08 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I'm sure you'll love them. After all, sister, you are Auntie Mitara." she nods
    [ 2016.03.23 05:06:33 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote blinks, "Oh dear."
    [ 2016.03.23 05:06:37 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote smirks
    [ 2016.03.23 05:07:54 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote giggles. "So, when can I come do survey work for my mountain house?"
    [ 2016.03.23 05:09:23 ] Mitara Newelle > Very soon.
    [ 2016.03.23 05:10:11 ] Mitara Newelle > You shall have lodgings, which you are free do design as you wish, in the capital as well
    [ 2016.03.23 05:10:55 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote nods. "I'll have to see how getting Din and Hasani to school will work. How are you planning on schooling your children?"
    [ 2016.03.23 05:11:59 ] Mitara Newelle > There will be tutors at the estate.
    [ 2016.03.23 05:12:25 ] Mitara Newelle > I would suggest you make use of them as well.
    [ 2016.03.23 05:12:29 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Oh. Hrmm. I could do that, but . . . isn't the socializing aspect important?"
    [ 2016.03.23 05:13:37 ] Mitara Newelle > There are opportunities for that.
    [ 2016.03.23 05:14:53 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote nods. "I mean, I can afford the best tutors. That's doable, easily."
    [ 2016.03.23 05:17:06 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I imagine I could also teach most subjects myself."
    [ 2016.03.23 05:17:40 ] Mitara Newelle > Yes. There just needs to be some amount of selectivity with whom they should socialize.
    [ 2016.03.23 05:18:05 ] Alizabeth Vea > "What do you mean? Are they going to be shunned from everything because of their upbrining?"
    [ 2016.03.23 05:18:51 ] Mitara Newelle > Most likely not.
    [ 2016.03.23 05:19:22 ] Mitara Newelle > What I meant to say was.... well, *she indicates Ali* the Director does not dine with the janitor.
    [ 2016.03.23 05:19:50 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote nods, obviously relieved. "That was something Ms. Jenneth had said. That they know their place in Amarr society, even now, as slaves. And I would change that. I think she thought they would be better off as slaves. I disagree."
    [ 2016.03.23 05:19:57 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Oh, well, of course."
    [ 2016.03.23 05:20:38 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote rubs her nose.
    [ 2016.03.23 05:21:18 ] Mitara Newelle > At times it is hard to convey this to another.... as it's just something we know.
    [ 2016.03.23 05:21:58 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Know what?"
    [ 2016.03.23 05:22:58 ] Mitara Newelle > To whom we must defer and whom should defer to us.
    [ 2016.03.23 05:23:29 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Oh. Yes. I get around that by being a capsuleer. And no interacting with many people."
    [ 2016.03.23 05:23:34 ] Mitara Newelle > It is a complex web I suppose.
    [ 2016.03.23 05:23:37 ] Vincentjstiles > /emote sips his drink
    [ 2016.03.23 05:24:43 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote nods. "I'm getting that."
    [ 2016.03.23 05:25:42 ] Mitara Newelle > I am sorry I am not a better teacher. It is not a gift of mine.
    [ 2016.03.23 05:26:08 ] Alizabeth Vea > "It's okay. I am not the best student."
    [ 2016.03.23 05:31:23 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote pushes aside the little bit of potato that is left.
    [ 2016.03.23 05:31:52 ] Alizabeth Vea > "We'll need to talk personal security for you. But not here. Later."
    [ 2016.03.23 05:32:18 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote looks past Ali, "Yes.... What else do you remember about your mother?"
    [ 2016.03.23 05:32:34 ] Vincentjstiles > /emote sips his drink
    [ 2016.03.23 05:33:09 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I remember she was hard working. I remember she would stay up late to talk to me and my sister. I remember that she would sacrifice everything to make sure we had it as easy as she could." Ali blinks away the tears.
    [ 2016.03.23 05:34:16 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote focuses her gaze on Ali and smiles reassuringly, "She sounds like a good woman."
    [ 2016.03.23 05:34:37 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I remember she taught me how to braid my hair. I remember her . . . love." Ali nods.
    [ 2016.03.23 05:35:17 ] Alizabeth Vea > "She was. Very good."
    [ 2016.03.23 05:35:34 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote nods with Ali and takes a long drink of her tea.
    [ 2016.03.23 05:37:21 ] Alizabeth Vea > "My father died when I was young. So it was just her from when I was eight. I don't know how she did it."
    [ 2016.03.23 05:38:00 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote nods.
    [ 2016.03.23 05:39:28 ] Mitara Newelle > Fond memories though, for the sounds of it.
    [ 2016.03.23 05:39:31 ] Mitara Newelle > from *
    [ 2016.03.23 05:39:34 ] Alizabeth Vea > "You should not blame her for my failures. She was . . . the source of my redemption."
    [ 2016.03.23 05:40:25 ] Mitara Newelle > Blessings upon her then
    [ 2016.03.23 05:41:30 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Fucking Gallente."
    [ 2016.03.23 05:41:30 ] Mitara Newelle > What of your sister?
    [ 2016.03.23 05:41:43 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote 's eyes go wide, "Alizabeth!"
    [ 2016.03.23 05:42:09 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote wips her eyes. "Sorry."
    [ 2016.03.23 05:43:43 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote nods slowly.
    [ 2016.03.23 05:43:51 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Genny is well. She's still in Deklein, but she comes back often. She builds things, sells things, moves things."
    [ 2016.03.23 05:45:17 ] Mitara Newelle > You are on good terms?
    [ 2016.03.23 05:45:48 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Very." she smiles weakly. "She's making the trip down next week."
    [ 2016.03.23 05:45:48 ] Vincentjstiles > /emote sips his drink
    [ 2016.03.23 05:46:47 ] Mitara Newelle > Ah. Good.
    [ 2016.03.23 05:48:48 ] Alizabeth Vea > "She might be helping with the design of the house. Building is her forte, not mine. I am better and making buildings fall down."
    [ 2016.03.23 05:49:45 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote lightly chuckles, "Aye."
    [ 2016.03.23 05:51:39 ] Mitara Newelle > Well, put her to good use, you have a couple of plans to do
    [ 2016.03.23 05:53:00 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I will. She'll love the mountain home. She loves snow as much as I."
    [ 2016.03.23 05:58:17 ] Mitara Newelle > I believe we are meeting tomorrow?
    [ 2016.03.23 05:58:26 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Yes, my lady."
    [ 2016.03.23 05:58:31 ] Mitara Newelle > I shall make best efforts to be there.
    [ 2016.03.23 05:58:46 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Thank you. I am sure they will be delighted to meet you."
    [ 2016.03.23 05:59:01 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote simply nods.
    [ 2016.03.23 05:59:19 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote stands, "Go with God, sister."
    [ 2016.03.23 06:00:11 ] Alizabeth Vea > "With your permission, I will walk with you to your ship?" Ali leaves the obvious unspoken. She's in a full out combat suit and Mitara is not."
    [ 2016.03.23 06:00:22 ] Alizabeth Vea > (no " at the end, grrr fingers)
    [ 2016.03.23 06:01:03 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote nods with a smiles.
    [ 2016.03.23 06:01:11 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote heads towards the exit.
    [ 2016.03.23 06:01:35 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote pockets the coin, but leaves an credit chit on the table, leaving with Mitara.

    Somewhere on Mishi IV

    [ 2016.03.24 02:20:17 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote has invited Ali to a cafe near the Orphanage while they wait word whether Lady Admiral Newelle has arrived on Mishi IV.
    [ 2016.03.24 02:20:40 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote is seated inside, enjoying the relative coolness, compared to the dry and dusty outside.
    [ 2016.03.24 02:20:59 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote is sipping coffee. There are some ni kunni smoking hookahs, and there is music and dancing.
    [ 2016.03.24 02:21:04 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote is in a Sarum Red Ni-Kunni style dress. She's almost pacing. "How much longer?"
    [ 2016.03.24 02:21:22 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I don;'t know. She has to travel here all the way from the warzone." she smiles at Ali. "Have a seat?"
    [ 2016.03.24 02:21:47 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote is again dressed in khakis and wearing a white hat.
    [ 2016.03.24 02:21:51 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Can't we go wait with Din and Hasani?"
    [ 2016.03.24 02:24:04 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Sure, but before we do." She ooks at Ali "I spoke with the Lady Admiral. She told me she would support your adopting" she prepares to continue not knowing Ali saw Mitty the night before at the Grape.
    [ 2016.03.24 02:24:45 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote nods slowly, still pacing. "That's good news. I assumed when you asked me to come out here, ma'am."
    [ 2016.03.24 02:25:04 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods. "She had a certain way she wants to do it."
    [ 2016.03.24 02:25:57 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote looks to Luna, questioningly.
    [ 2016.03.24 02:26:01 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "They will become wards of her desmene.. while you get.. your feet wet so to speak. After a time, if all works out and you are able to raise them as citizens of the Empire and the Faith, you can adopt them. "
    [ 2016.03.24 02:26:37 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "She wants me to be Godmother in case for whatever you can't. Such as you habe to rejoin GSFand go back to Deklein"
    [ 2016.03.24 02:26:55 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote stops, obviously thinking about it. "So, what am I here for, then?"
    [ 2016.03.24 02:27:25 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "To pick them up of course with the Lady Admiral and then take them."
    [ 2016.03.24 02:27:47 ] Alizabeth Vea > "She's taking them. What am I here for." Ali keeps her voice very, very even
    [ 2016.03.24 02:28:20 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "No, she is agreeing that they will be wards of her State. You are taking them."
    [ 2016.03.24 02:28:24 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Under her conditions."
    [ 2016.03.24 02:28:36 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote looks at Ali "They are entirely reasonable.'
    [ 2016.03.24 02:29:24 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote takes a moment and nods.
    [ 2016.03.24 02:29:46 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "So .. shall we see the children?"
    [ 2016.03.24 02:30:44 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote grabs her leather bag and places it on her shoulder. "I wish this had not been sprung on me just now."
    [ 2016.03.24 02:31:46 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Well... I didn't have a chance to talk to you before. The LAdu Admiral wanted us to discuss it in person."
    [ 2016.03.24 02:32:08 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Seems I have now." She smiles brightly as she rises..
    [ 2016.03.24 02:32:25 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote nods. "They will still be freed tonight? This 'ward' isn't some polite term, is it?"
    [ 2016.03.24 02:32:50 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Yes. They are beingfreed. Children.. without parents.. have to become a ward of someone.
    [ 2016.03.24 02:34:21 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote relaxes visibly
    [ 2016.03.24 02:34:31 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Oh, okay then. Let's go."
    [ 2016.03.24 02:35:15 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote leaves a 1 isk piece to more than cover her bill. As she leaves, the servers lunge to fight over it.
    [ 2016.03.24 02:36:03 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote sighs and gives every single one of them a thousand ISK note, then follows Luna
    [ 2016.03.24 02:36:41 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote blithelessly proceeds to the orphamage.
    [ 2016.03.24 02:37:02 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote doublechecks her shoulder bag again.
    [ 2016.03.24 02:38:17 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote returns to the same meeting room as before. She smiles at Ali.
    [ 2016.03.24 02:38:20 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Shall we go in?
    [ 2016.03.24 02:39:21 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote nods quickly. Nervously. "Yes."
    [ 2016.03.24 02:40:58 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote opens the door and enters. Din and Hasabi are there. Unlike before they are clearly in their Amarr "Holy Day" best. Din looks uncomfortable in the formal attire and is pulling at his collar. Hasabi.looks lovely as a ten year old girl could be
    [ 2016.03.24 02:42:34 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote smiles. "Salve." and walks over. "Did they tell you what's happening?"
    [ 2016.03.24 02:43:01 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > *Hasabi says "Yes, they told us we are going to our new home." She looks happy and nervous "Is it with you?"
    [ 2016.03.24 02:44:54 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Yes." she decides to forget the complications. "A holder that I know, that owes me a huge favor is freeing you and we're going to go to your-our new home. I hope you don't mind living in space for a bit? Until my house is built."
    [ 2016.03.24 02:45:45 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **Hasabi says "Cool!"
    [ 2016.03.24 02:46:04 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **Din nods. "Okay" he says quietly. "umm.. is there gravity where we'll be?"
    [ 2016.03.24 02:46:55 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote giggles. "Yes. There will be. We can make artificial gravity. It won't be hot or dusty, if that's okay?"
    [ 2016.03.24 02:47:44 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **Din says "That sounds good." Next to the children are two bags. Din's looks.. a bit blocky. Hasabi's seems light, but has a cord dangling out,
    [ 2016.03.24 02:49:04 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Is that everything?" Luna asks.
    [ 2016.03.24 02:49:20 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **The children nod. it's everything they own. In the entire Cluster.
    [ 2016.03.24 02:49:27 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I did bring you both something. A present for each of you. Do you want them now, or later?"
    [ 2016.03.24 02:50:09 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote giggles "If they are like my children.. now"
    [ 2016.03.24 02:50:29 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **The children look excited. Hasani says "Now!"
    [ 2016.03.24 02:53:01 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Well. That answers that." she reaches into her shoulder bag and pulls out a small box. She hands it to Hasani to open. Inside is a large ruby with diamond halo necklace with yellow gold as the metal.
    [ 2016.03.24 02:54:37 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **Hasani's eyes open wide. "for.. me?"
    [ 2016.03.24 02:55:47 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > ((Oh.. luna's outfit - https://i.ytimg.com/vi/gjjDmeFbqYo/hqdefault.jpg )
    [ 2016.03.24 02:55:57 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote nods happily. "Yes. For you, Hasani."
    [ 2016.03.24 02:56:33 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **Hasani takes it carefully. She's never touched.. anything like this before. She cradles it in her hands protectively.
    [ 2016.03.24 02:57:27 ] Alizabeth Vea > "We're going to be living on Mekhios. So, it won't hurt for you to be wearing the local colours. And . . . I have ties to Sarum, so you do, too, now. I hope you like it."
    [ 2016.03.24 02:58:56 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **Hasani nods wordlessly. She doesn't put it on, but seemsto be looking for a place to secrete it.
    [ 2016.03.24 02:59:18 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Would you like my help to put it on?"
    [ 2016.03.24 03:00:36 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **Hasani looks uncharacterstically uncertain.. "Sure"
    [ 2016.03.24 03:00:57 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Something the matter?"
    [ 2016.03.24 03:02:01 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **Hasani gets quiet. "I'll tru it on.'
    [ 2016.03.24 03:02:17 ] Alizabeth Vea > "You can tell me." Ali says gently.
    [ 2016.03.24 03:03:18 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **Hasani says "it's so pretty..I've never worn anything like it before.."
    [ 2016.03.24 03:05:21 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Well, let me put it on and you can see it in the mirror." she says reassuringly. Ali takes it and puts the necklace on Hasani.
    [ 2016.03.24 03:06:59 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **Hasani holds still.
    [ 2016.03.24 03:07:50 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote gets her compact mirror and holds it out for Hasani to see. "What do you think? I think it looks good on you. Cute as a button. Are buttons really cute? And if so, why?" Ali smirks.
    [ 2016.03.24 03:08:36 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **Hasani giggles nervously. "Is.. there a mirror in herE?"
    [ 2016.03.24 03:09:27 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote smiles. She picks up her purse "I have one in my purse"
    [ 2016.03.24 03:09:34 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote hands it to Hasani. Ali has one!
    [ 2016.03.24 03:09:41 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote giggles.
    [ 2016.03.24 03:13:13 ] Alizabeth Vea > "And I did not forget you, Din." she says warmly. "Something different for you, though." Ali hands Din a box, inside is a mechanical, analogue watch, platinum with a diamond bezel. There's fine engraving on the clockface.
    [ 2016.03.24 03:13:28 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **Hasani looks at the mirror. Her eyes widen as she touches the necklace slowly, assuring herself she is actually wearing it,.
    [ 2016.03.24 03:13:59 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **DIn takes the watch and looks curiously at it. He looks at the engraving.
    [ 2016.03.24 03:14:03 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote glances back to Hasani
    [ 2016.03.24 03:14:37 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote stands quietly back from Ali and the children smiling.
    [ 2016.03.24 03:15:53 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **Din places he watch on his wrist "Cool.. just like in the stories"
    [ 2016.03.24 03:16:17 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I thought you would appreciate that. No batteries, or circuits. It's all mechanical. You wind it up there."
    [ 2016.03.24 03:18:01 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **Din carefully tests it.. it winds. He looks up "Nifty"
    [ 2016.03.24 03:19:10 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I wanted you both to have something to remember this day by. Something that would last."
    [ 2016.03.24 03:20:36 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **The children look up. It dawns on them, then they nod seriously.
    [ 2016.03.24 03:22:29 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I did, however, get something that would not last." she reaches into her bag and gets a small box of chocolates. Small! Two pieces each for the three of them.
    [ 2016.03.24 03:25:57 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > *the children smile. Now this is a treat they are used to!
    [ 2016.03.24 03:26:37 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Not too much. Dinner is soon. Or will be on your new schedule."
    [ 2016.03.24 03:27:09 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **The children greedily devour whatever Ali gave them without regard to whether dinner is soon.
    [ 2016.03.24 03:27:27 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Ali, you'll learn.. hold stuff like that til after dinner." She giggles.
    [ 2016.03.24 03:28:12 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote does not sigh as they eat the pieces Ali wanted to eat. Oh well. "Yes. I suppose so. Still. This is a happy day, right?"
    [ 2016.03.24 03:28:25 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote notes for Mitty the following
    [ 2016.03.24 03:28:50 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **Ali and Luna are in a room with the children. They are eating chocolate and there is some wrapping paper apparently opened.
    [ 2016.03.24 03:29:20 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **Mitty would be shown to the 'welcoming room' of the Orphanage once she arrives at the Orphanage and can enter when she chooses.
    [ 2016.03.24 03:29:47 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote enters the room with a frown, "Apologies for my tardiness."
    [ 2016.03.24 03:29:54 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote is wearing https://i.ytimg.com/vi/gjjDmeFbqYo/hqdefault.jpg . The Children are in their Holy Day best.
    [ 2016.03.24 03:30:15 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote is in a Sarum Red Ni-Kunni style dress with gold trim.
    [ 2016.03.24 03:30:36 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "No apoligy needed Lady Admiral,, just thanks. I know it's a trip"
    [ 2016.03.24 03:31:08 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **the Children quiet and get serious. Din quickly wipes the chocolate off his mouth with his shirt sleeve. Hasani uses a handkerchief.
    [ 2016.03.24 03:31:18 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote approaches the group, "All the little things kept piling up...."
    [ 2016.03.24 03:31:24 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote turns and stand. She bows. "Salve, sister."
    [ 2016.03.24 03:32:09 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote reaches the group and nods to Ali, "Sister." * Mitara nods to Luna, "Directrix Daphiti"
    [ 2016.03.24 03:32:17 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote curtseys. She glances meaningfully at the children who are slow to pick up on the social cue. They hastily bow, bumble and curyseu. sort of.
    [ 2016.03.24 03:33:43 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote looks over the children with a critical eye, "So these must be the children in question."
    [ 2016.03.24 03:34:22 ] Alizabeth Vea > "My lady. This is Din." she gestures to the boy. "And Hasani." to the girl. "Children. This is Lady Mitara Newelle, Champion of the House of Sarum, and a dozen other important titles."
    [ 2016.03.24 03:35:02 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **The children look quiet and serious. Hasani says "Hello Lady Newelle." Din is silent.
    [ 2016.03.24 03:35:24 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote smiles slightly at the two children, "Din and Hasani. How very nice to meet you"
    [ 2016.03.24 03:36:45 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote looks over at the chocolate and wrapping paper, "I see things have started without me, ah well, that is ok."
    [ 2016.03.24 03:36:45 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **Din says by rote "And you, Milady"
    [ 2016.03.24 03:37:22 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote looks at Luna, "What have I missed?"
    [ 2016.03.24 03:37:37 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Well.." she shrugs sheepishly. "They were excited.. " She looks at Mitara "And I also explained to Alizabeth what you and I discussed.. in terms of.. how to make this happen."
    [ 2016.03.24 03:38:02 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Althought you may wish.. to reinforce it to ensure I didn't miss anything."
    [ 2016.03.24 03:38:04 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote smiles and turns to the children. "She's a very dear friend of mine. This could not happen without her."
    [ 2016.03.24 03:38:32 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **Hasani smiles a little at that. A nice Holder! Maybe?
    [ 2016.03.24 03:38:59 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote nods to Luna then turns to Ali, "You agree to this arrangement, sister?"
    [ 2016.03.24 03:39:52 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "they are wards of your desmeme, she cares for them for a time until you are sure she is ready to adopt. I stand as God mother to ensure they are raised in the Faith and as citizens of the Empire" she repeats by way pf summary
    [ 2016.03.24 03:40:13 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote nods.
    [ 2016.03.24 03:40:33 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I do."
    [ 2016.03.24 03:41:03 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote smiles slightly at the children and knees down next to them.
    [ 2016.03.24 03:41:33 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **The children remain quiet and looks at Mitara.
    [ 2016.03.24 03:42:26 ] Mitara Newelle > Do you understand what is going on? That you are wards of my domain, and this woman * she indicates Ali * is going to take care of you?
    [ 2016.03.24 03:42:35 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote swallows hard.
    [ 2016.03.24 03:43:04 ] Mitara Newelle > And that she means to be a mother to you?
    [ 2016.03.24 03:43:15 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **Din asks "Does it mean we aren't slaves.. anymore?" Hasani asks "Does Ward mean... we belong to you now?"
    [ 2016.03.24 03:43:46 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote tries to hide her nervousness, but Mitara, having flown with Ali in the trials would know that Ali is anything but calm
    [ 2016.03.24 03:44:31 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote looks at Din, "No, you are no longer slaves" * She turns to Hasani, "You do not belong to me, no, but I am ultimately responsibile for your well being, until such a time as Ms Alizabeth formally becomes your mother."
    [ 2016.03.24 03:45:10 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **the Children nod. They look at Ali hopefully then back at Mitara.
    [ 2016.03.24 03:45:13 ] Mitara Newelle > In keeping with my responsibility to you, I want you to have a good home.
    [ 2016.03.24 03:45:23 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote nods quickly to the children
    [ 2016.03.24 03:45:31 ] Mitara Newelle > And Ms Alizabeth wants you to live with her.
    [ 2016.03.24 03:46:03 ] Mitara Newelle > Is that something you would like to do? Live with Ms Alizabeth?
    [ 2016.03.24 03:46:13 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote notes Lunarisse has stepped back to let the children focus on Mitara and Ali.
    [ 2016.03.24 03:46:14 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote goes back to being nervous.
    [ 2016.03.24 03:46:45 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **Hasani responds first "Yes! We'd love that." Din simpy nods and says "Yes."
    [ 2016.03.24 03:47:07 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote smiles at the two children, "Good! Good."
    [ 2016.03.24 03:47:44 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote stands and looks at Ali, "You are ready for this?"
    [ 2016.03.24 03:48:05 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Yes." left unsaid: I hope so.
    [ 2016.03.24 03:48:36 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote smiles. "I am sure you will do well, Ali."
    [ 2016.03.24 03:48:58 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote nods to Ali then looks at Luna for any additional response from her.
    [ 2016.03.24 03:49:42 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I think it will be a growing experience.. for each of you. An adjustment. Remember.. to be patient with each other. Even you, children."
    [ 2016.03.24 03:50:54 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote looks down at the children, "Yes. You have a role to play too. You see, Ms Alizabeth did not grow up with God as you have, she may need your help from time to time, just as she will help you with the things you struggle with."
    [ 2016.03.24 03:51:17 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote nods. "It's my first time being a mother, too." she adds softly.
    [ 2016.03.24 03:51:58 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I'm liable to let you stay up too late, eat junk food, and, well, all the stuff you should not."
    [ 2016.03.24 03:52:14 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > *Hasani smiles "I've memorized all the important parts of the religious scriptures." Din, relaxes and chuckles at Ali's remark.
    [ 2016.03.24 03:52:54 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote chuckles lightly, "Well, hopefully not *too* late. "
    [ 2016.03.24 03:54:04 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I'll try to remember."
    [ 2016.03.24 03:54:23 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > 'Remember, be consistent." she chuckles.
    [ 2016.03.24 03:54:43 ] Alizabeth Vea > "I should be taking notes." she looks to the kids. "They've done this before."
    [ 2016.03.24 03:55:03 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote nods, "Welcome to your new adventure, sister, and you too children."
    [ 2016.03.24 03:55:28 ] Mitara Newelle > May God bless, guide, and keep you all.
    [ 2016.03.24 03:55:34 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote smiles. "Thank you, sister."
    [ 2016.03.24 03:56:14 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Havea a Blessed Night as well." She smiles wryly "time for you take them home. Ali." She looks at Ali "We have extra room in the Lamp if you needit untilyou get a place set"
    [ 2016.03.24 03:56:49 ] Alizabeth Vea > "If you don't mind. I have secured quarters on the Sarum Family station in Sarum Prime."
    [ 2016.03.24 03:57:18 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "That is fine." She looks at Ali. "I. also want to invite you back to SFRIM. I think it's beem five days and the war is over"
    [ 2016.03.24 03:57:44 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Seven days is the waiting period."
    [ 2016.03.24 03:57:58 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote shrugs. "You and the children can visit any time you want. They might like meeting Quark"
    [ 2016.03.24 03:58:20 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I shall leave you." she smiles. She looks at the children "Be Blessed" She looks at Mitty "Thank you"
    [ 2016.03.24 03:59:18 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Go with God, Directrix."
    [ 2016.03.24 03:59:32 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote exits.
    [ 2016.03.24 03:59:44 ] Mitara Newelle > My pleasure.
    [ 2016.03.24 03:59:59 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **The Children say "good night, Milady" to Lunarisse as she goes.
    [ 2016.03.24 04:02:11 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Thank you again, my lady." Ali places a hand on the children's shoulders. "And we should go. I have chartered a shuttle to take us to Amarr."
    [ 2016.03.24 04:05:57 ] Mitara Newelle > Good luck, sister, hopefully your homes will not take long to construct.
    [ 2016.03.24 04:07:08 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Genny will be here first thing next week." she bows. Gentling nudging to the kids to do so as well. "Be well, sister."
    [ 2016.03.24 04:07:41 ] Mitara Newelle > And you.
    [ 2016.03.24 04:09:46 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote heads out with Din and Hasani. "From Amarr, we're going to take my Paladin to Sarum Prime. You get the be on the bridge the whole time." Hasani thinks this is the coolest thing since liquid nitrogen. Din is more reserved
    [ 2016.03.24 04:10:07 ] Mitara Newelle > /emote chuckles as they leave

    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.

    [ 2016.03.26 02:02:31 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote enters. She steps to the side to again Let James get a view. "Strictly speaking this is more.. the inspiration for the Ni Kunni Water gardens.. than an actual garden. it.. reproduces an oasis."
    [ 2016.03.26 02:02:45 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Hidden in a cleft in the mountains"
    [ 2016.03.26 02:03:12 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote has decided to take Din and Hasani on a picnic to 'her' garden. Nevermind who actually owns it. Since this is one of Ali's favorite places, and Mishi is a long way away, it will have to do if the kids want to get away.
    [ 2016.03.26 02:04:28 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote pads into the garden, again moving alongside James Syagrius as he enters, then moving to rejoin Luna*
    [ 2016.03.26 02:04:46 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > *Din and Hasani are excitedly chattering as they sit cross legged on the ground wherever Ali has set up the Picnic.
    [ 2016.03.26 02:05:06 ] James Syagrius > /emote gives a puzzled expression then looks at Lunarisse Aspenstar. Have you visited Mishi?
    [ 2016.03.26 02:05:19 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote sees Ali and says lightly by way of both introduction and warning "Hello Satelium, is good to see you." she glances at James 'I am giving a tour to this gentleman tonight."
    [ 2016.03.26 02:05:36 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote looks at James and says simply "Yes."
    [ 2016.03.26 02:05:45 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote reaches into her boot, looking up to see who is there. She relaxes and stands. "Salve, ma'am."
    [ 2016.03.26 02:06:21 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote adds by way of introduction "This is James Syagrius ."
    [ 2016.03.26 02:07:14 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Sasia, sir." she looks back to Luna. "Are we fine, or do we need to go?"
    [ 2016.03.26 02:07:47 ] Aria Jenneth > *bows to Ali, but otherwise continues shadowing Luna*
    [ 2016.03.26 02:07:50 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "You are always fine, as is any member of the Society and their friends." She smiles and waggles her fingers at Din and Hasani. Din looks doubtfully at her, Hasani smiles cheerily.
    [ 2016.03.26 02:07:53 ] James Syagrius > /emote gives a noncommittal expression about Mishi and then nods a greeting to Alizabeth Vea. Good.. evening.
    [ 2016.03.26 02:09:43 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Perhaps.. your wife could show you.. some of the quieter, secret spots sometimes, Monseiur" she gives a Mona Lisa smile ((if such a term has any meaning in New Eden)).
    [ 2016.03.26 02:09:44 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote nods and takes a seat back with her children, passing out the potato salad. She keeps a very close eye on James.
    [ 2016.03.26 02:10:53 ] James Syagrius > /emote Notices the children and smiles, then squats to say hello.
    [ 2016.03.26 02:12:31 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote barely restrains herself from getting between James and the kids. She lets them act as they will
    [ 2016.03.26 02:12:57 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > *Din looks at James. He doesn't say anything. Hasani says politely "hello, Sir."
    [ 2016.03.26 02:14:23 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote places a hand on Din's shoulder, letting him know that she's right here.
    [ 2016.03.26 02:14:25 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote watches with a kind of wistful (?) dispassion*
    [ 2016.03.26 02:14:56 ] James Syagrius > /emote James doesn’t approach them, just squats with a kind expression. Hello, are you enjoying your Pick-nick?
    [ 2016.03.26 02:16:07 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > *Hasani says "it's great!" Din adds "but no Beetles"
    [ 2016.03.26 02:16:45 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote sighs. "But there is lizzard!"
    [ 2016.03.26 02:16:58 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote giggles "Poor things. But the Lizard should be nice!"
    [ 2016.03.26 02:18:40 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **As if to reinforce that, Din digs into his, without waiting for James to add anything else.
    [ 2016.03.26 02:19:38 ] James Syagrius > /emote face becomes animated. Beetles!? Well that is a pity isn’t it. But yes lizards, they are nice as well. ~James stands seemingly stiff~
    [ 2016.03.26 02:20:42 ] James Syagrius > /emote smiling at the children and nodding to Alizabeth Vea. It was very nice to make you acquaintance.
    [ 2016.03.26 02:20:52 ] Alizabeth Vea > "Sorry, Din. I'll see about beetles next time." she nods to James. "And you, sir.
    [ 2016.03.26 02:20:59 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote asks James "Did you wife cook much of her native cuisine for you? It.. can be unique"
    [ 2016.03.26 02:22:28 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote gets a slight twinkle in her eye.
    [ 2016.03.26 02:23:40 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > **the Children nod at the man. They resume eating, letting the adults talk.
    [ 2016.03.26 02:24:20 ] James Syagrius > /emote chuckles. Dear me no, My dear wife is the daughter of Hygelic A’Dal… I don’ think she can cook at all. ~Then looks at the children again and is far away for the briefest of seconds.~
    [ 2016.03.26 02:25:09 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods very slightly, taking in that remark. She reaches up and takes a fig and begins to munch on it ."Do you have any questions about this garden?"
    [ 2016.03.26 02:26:05 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote explains to the children that she loves them very much, is willing to do anything for them, except for eating bugs.
    [ 2016.03.26 02:26:33 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote overhears and stifles a giggle. She continues to munch on her fig.
    [ 2016.03.26 02:28:31 ] James Syagrius > /emote Smiles and nod in the negative. No, I have spent quite to much time on Mishi. ~Smiles~ While pleasant… Plus don’t want to impede the pick nick.
    [ 2016.03.26 02:29:35 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Well.. let's continue to the Colonial garden then,."
    [ 2016.03.26 02:29:59 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote waggles her fingers at Ali and the children. Hasani waves back. Din gives a neutral smile.
    [ 2016.03.26 02:30:38 ] James Syagrius > Do you have children?
    [ 2016.03.26 02:30:43 ] Aria Jenneth > *smiles just a little, herself
    [ 2016.03.26 02:31:31 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says lightly "Four. One is a capsuleer." She leads the way to the next garden.
    [ 2016.03.26 02:32:09 ] Alizabeth Vea > /emote goes back to the food. She's also brought some Starsi for drink.
    [ 2016.03.26 02:32:36 ] James Syagrius > /emote He follows, hands still behind his back. Four… Now why didn’t I know that.
