Location: SFRIM Offices. Bar. Nahyeen VII, Zoar & Sons FactorySetting: The main gathering area of the Society, the bar sports plush leather couches centered around a long coffee table. Low music plays songs from around the galaxy. The soft blue lighting is easy on the eyes, but still light enough to see what you're doing and where you're going. The shelves are filled haphazardly with bottles of spirits, clearly labeled. The whiskeys shelf label has been taped over by Lucas. There is a shelf with rum on it, with a fresh label reading 'Alexi'. Above that, is Nicoletta's shelf, with juice mixes and exotic wine, with a few bottles of absinthe here and there. A long line of bottles of Quafe are on a shelf with a "DON'T TOUCH!" sign by Rhoxy. Johanes has a shelf with brandies and cognac and a lone bottle of smurgleblaster. One shelf labeled "Lord Anderson's" has three bottles of brandy from Gallente space, along with other liquors. Lunarisse's shelf has spiced wine and other vintages from around New Eden, with a few religious texts leaning against the bottles. New to her collection is one tall, elegant bottle with amarrian scrollwork of Cream Liqueur, one tall elegant bottle with amarrian scrollwork of Chocolate Liqueur, one stout, wide bottle with amarrian scroll work of Chocolate sauce with added black tea all wrapped in a secure richly coloured, dark wood box. A shelf labeled in neat Amarrian caligraphy "Garion Avarr" contains a selection of teas, Amarrian coffee, port sherry, and other bottles.There are a few other shelves that hold overflow and shared drinks for all. A well stocked refrigerator is behind the bar and equipmebnt to brew teas and coffees are behind the bar.On the walls are starscapes with Society members, painted by Lord Anderson.Against one wall is a majestic golden Tash-Murkon Grandmother Clock, secured so it does not tip.There is Sarum Shepard named " Quark"Exits: Gottin's Lamp - Kitchen, Gottin's Lamp - Sleeping Area, Gottin's Lamp - Library, and Gottin's Lamp
[ 2016.05.17 00:08:09 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote enters the bar with Thulla. She pauses to indicate it generally with a sweep of her hand* ... welcome to the pilots' section of things ...
[ 2016.05.17 00:08:43 ] Aria Jenneth > Sleeping quarters are back there-- kitchen's back there-- to be clear, there's no staff: pilots only.
[ 2016.05.17 00:09:23 ] Thulla Icin > /emote grins. "That's kinda cool. Neat."
[ 2016.05.17 00:09:32 ] Aria Jenneth > ... no servants. Just us.-- okay, technically I am a servant, but not the sort who usually ... makes drinks or cooks meals.
[ 2016.05.17 00:09:53 ] Thulla Icin > /emote blinks. "You are?"
[ 2016.05.17 00:10:37 ] Aria Jenneth > *nodnods* It's ... a little complicated to explain. I'll ... get to it a bit later, if that's okay.
[ 2016.05.17 00:10:58 ] Thulla Icin > /emote shrugs. "Sure, okay."
[ 2016.05.17 00:11:15 ] Aria Jenneth > Can I get you anything? Fair warning: I can't remember ever having tried mixing drinks, so I have no idea whether I'm any good at it.
[ 2016.05.17 00:11:44 ] Aria Jenneth > ... my default is usually tea.
[ 2016.05.17 00:13:50 ] Thulla Icin > /emote laughs. "Almost tempted to find out if you are any good just because that seems like a great thing to test, but if you have any ciders, that would be great. Um, the alcoholic kind, mind, some people get confused."
[ 2016.05.17 00:14:20 ] Aria Jenneth > Those are usually served ... cold, right? I'll check the fridge.
[ 2016.05.17 00:14:33 ] Lady Templar > * Walks in yauning "Salve Peregrinans" * Looks at Thulla blinking "Greetings Miss"
[ 2016.05.17 00:15:16 ] Thulla Icin > /emote nods. "Yeah, usually. Though some people will just pour them over ice, sometimes."
[ 2016.05.17 00:15:21 ] Aria Jenneth > *she slips around behind the bar, and begins rummaging-- though she pops up long enough to bow to Lady Templar* Ave, Neophyte! ... um ... let me see ...
[ 2016.05.17 00:16:49 ] Thulla Icin > /emote smiles at the new arrival. "Heya." She pauses, unsure if she should bow or something, and makes an awkward half attempt at it after several moments pass.
[ 2016.05.17 00:18:31 ] Aria Jenneth > ... so-- um. If you don't ... mind my asking-- was it ... the personal connection that ... brought you to the faith, Ms. Icin? *she fishes out a bottle of cider and fetches a pint glass*
[ 2016.05.17 00:19:41 ] Lady Templar > "I'm going to find a bunk, that was a long shift today." * Smiles at Thulla "Lady Templar is just a callsign, I'm just a Khanid born capsuleer, no more, no less. Sorry to interupt you Miss Aria"
[ 2016.05.17 00:19:58 ] Aria Jenneth > ... it's okay!
[ 2016.05.17 00:20:00 ] Thulla Icin > Ah . . . well, I guess you could say that I kinda had what I suppose most people would describe as a divine revelation one day.
[ 2016.05.17 00:20:09 ] Aria Jenneth > ...?
[ 2016.05.17 00:20:54 ] Aria Jenneth > *she empties the bottle into the glass, with care-- not a bad pour*
[ 2016.05.17 00:21:16 ] Aria Jenneth > ... ... um. hm. ... er, never mind. *she passes it across*
[ 2016.05.17 00:21:59 ] Thulla Icin > It, um . . . well, it's not as if angels came down from the sky, but . . . well, it's kinda hard to describe in words, I guess.
[ 2016.05.17 00:23:01 ] Aria Jenneth > ... okay ...
[ 2016.05.17 00:23:16 ] Aria Jenneth > ... It sounds like it was meaningful to you, though.
[ 2016.05.17 00:23:27 ] Lady Templar > * Nods to both Aria and Thulla and heads to the sleeping quarters yauning again
[ 2016.05.17 00:23:37 ] Thulla Icin > But ever since then, it's just felt very right. The faith, I mean. Not . . . well, a lot of the things the Amarr do, you know. Which has made it kinda hard, knowing that this is what I'm meant to believe, but . . .
[ 2016.05.17 00:24:37 ] Aria Jenneth > *quietly* Some of it's hard, huh.
[ 2016.05.17 00:24:42 ] Aria Jenneth > ... for me, too.
[ 2016.05.17 00:25:14 ] Thulla Icin > Yeah.
[ 2016.05.17 00:26:07 ] Aria Jenneth > *she's setting about getting a teapot filled with hot water*
[ 2016.05.17 00:27:06 ] Thulla Icin > Both watching what a lot of Amarrians do because of their belief in the same God I believe in, and knowing that belief makes me a stranger among my own people.
[ 2016.05.17 00:27:56 ] Aria Jenneth > *nodnods* That would ... yeah.
[ 2016.05.17 00:28:52 ] Aria Jenneth > Sometimes I'm ... in company with Amarr talking about how they hope the ... Caldari will one day peacefully join with the Empire.
[ 2016.05.17 00:29:19 ] Aria Jenneth > And I ... find myself thinking of what might really happen. And ... it scares me some.
[ 2016.05.17 00:29:50 ] Thulla Icin > /emote nods slowly.
[ 2016.05.17 00:29:56 ] Aria Jenneth > ... I don't particularly love the State, but ...
[ 2016.05.17 00:30:06 ] Aria Jenneth > ... I don't ... really wish harm on anyone there.
[ 2016.05.17 00:31:16 ] Aria Jenneth > ... Not on Jita, New Caldari ... or Saisio. ... home, to ... my people.
[ 2016.05.17 00:32:35 ] Aria Jenneth > *she brings a tea pot and teacup over*
[ 2016.05.17 00:32:48 ] Aria Jenneth > *... and gets herself settled*
[ 2016.05.17 00:33:18 ] Aria Jenneth > ... I'm sorry. I-- don't mean to ...
[ 2016.05.17 00:33:40 ] Thulla Icin > No, it's -- I understand.
[ 2016.05.17 00:34:12 ] Aria Jenneth > ... *nodnods*
[ 2016.05.17 00:34:31 ] Thulla Icin > /emote looks off into the distance. "Life can be a real bitch sometimes."
[ 2016.05.17 00:34:39 ] Aria Jenneth > ... yeah.
[ 2016.05.17 00:35:48 ] Aria Jenneth > Are you going to ... be okay, that way? Even in the ... short term, I can see how that would be really hard on anyone from the Republic.
[ 2016.05.17 00:36:18 ] Aria Jenneth > ... it's not like we're totally uninvolved in ... that war.
[ 2016.05.17 00:37:00 ] Thulla Icin > And it's not even -- it's not even that it's all bad. Sometimes we find really good things outside of home. But even if you can''t go home, or if it hurts to do so, you still care. And that's painful, sometimes.
[ 2016.05.17 00:39:13 ] Thulla Icin > . . . I, well, I guess I'm trying to figure that out. in the short term, the boss-lady -- sorry, the Directrix, I'm not good with titles -- said I don't have to do any fighting I'm not comfortable with.
[ 2016.05.17 00:41:26 ] Thulla Icin > So long as I don't go around breaking the laws of the Empire, she said that was okay, do the things I'm comfortable with like hunting pirates. But . . . long term, I feel like I don't know if that's being honest with myself.
[ 2016.05.17 00:41:44 ] Thulla Icin > I guess I gotta find myself a bit.
[ 2016.05.17 00:43:55 ] Aria Jenneth > ... in here, you can call her Lunarisse.
[ 2016.05.17 00:44:12 ] Aria Jenneth > It's .. kind of meant to be informal. I don't ... actually know Lady Templar's name, though.
[ 2016.05.17 00:44:52 ] Aria Jenneth > And ... yeah. I guess ... life's like that a little.
[ 2016.05.17 00:50:07 ] Aria Jenneth > ... I'm a little curious, though ... what sort of being you feel that God is.
[ 2016.05.17 00:50:30 ] Aria Jenneth > ... I'm not actually a ... believer myself, as ... odd as that probably sounds for someone here.
[ 2016.05.17 00:57:10 ] Thulla Icin > Well . . . I guess God's kind of hard to pin down in 'being' terms, a little.
[ 2016.05.17 00:59:58 ] Aria Jenneth > *nods, listening*
[ 2016.05.17 01:04:36 ] Thulla Icin > God is . . . well, I guess I wouldn't really call God a 'being' exactly the same way you and I are, yet I wouldn't say that God is some nebulious force, either. A conciciousness, an intent. Something defined yet uncontained.
[ 2016.05.17 01:05:18 ] Thulla Icin > /emote shrugs. "I'm not . . . I'm not really good with words."
[ 2016.05.17 01:06:14 ] Thulla Icin > /emote blushes slightly.
[ 2016.05.17 01:08:31 ] Aria Jenneth > ... *smiles a little* It's okay.
[ 2016.05.17 01:09:00 ] Aria Jenneth > ... I'm ... always curious what converts ... to the Amarrian faith see in it that I don't.
[ 2016.05.17 01:09:19 ] Aria Jenneth > ... so I tend to pester people with questions.
[ 2016.05.17 01:11:31 ] Thulla Icin > /emote smiles apologetically. "Sorry if I'm not of much help . . . I guess for me, since I converted because I 'had a revelation,' my reasons might not make much sense for other people."
[ 2016.05.17 01:12:58 ] Aria Jenneth > ... it's okay. ... Do you have any questions about the corporation or anything?
[ 2016.05.17 01:14:02 ] Thulla Icin > I . . . well, I probably should, but I don't think I really have anything too much right now.
[ 2016.05.17 01:14:41 ] Thulla Icin > Well, I guess I should ask what I can do to help out with the war.
[ 2016.05.17 01:14:53 ] Aria Jenneth > *she sips her tea*
[ 2016.05.17 01:15:11 ] Aria Jenneth > ... you mean the ... one with "Complaints Department?"
[ 2016.05.17 01:15:43 ] Aria Jenneth > ... or the other?
[ 2016.05.17 01:16:46 ] Thulla Icin > Ah . . . with the 'Complaints Department, yes."
[ 2016.05.17 01:17:35 ] Aria Jenneth > ... yeah. The other I'd ... Um. So ..
[ 2016.05.17 01:17:51 ] Aria Jenneth > Actually, our approach to it is just to stay away and deny them any kind of satisfaction.
[ 2016.05.17 01:17:58 ] Thulla Icin > /emote shifts a bit. "I suppose about how far I'm going to go in regards to fighting the 'other war.'"
[ 2016.05.17 01:18:26 ] Aria Jenneth > Basically, while ... it's running, stay away from Amarr, Jita, and the pipe in between.
[ 2016.05.17 01:18:34 ] Thulla Icin > *I suppose I have to think about how far
[ 2016.05.17 01:18:39 ] Aria Jenneth > Don't carry valuable cargo or use ... an expensive clone.
[ 2016.05.17 01:22:19 ] Aria Jenneth > ... and if you feel up for it, it might be a good time to familiarize yourself with our holdings in Providence.
[ 2016.05.17 01:22:37 ] Aria Jenneth > Or-- rather, projects. I'm not sure we actually have any holdings there.
[ 2016.05.17 01:23:01 ] Aria Jenneth > ... we might at some point have a citadel, but I'm not at all sure where.
[ 2016.05.17 01:24:25 ] Thulla Icin > /emote nods. "I will do that."
[ 2016.05.17 01:26:21 ] Thulla Icin > /emote sighs a little. "I've never . . . I've never been anything but a fighter. Trying to figure out my role in the Empire, when part of that fight is against people I still care about, is going to take some adjustment."
[ 2016.05.17 01:26:58 ] Aria Jenneth > ... ... *nodnods* I'm sorry. If ... you want to talk, at ... any point ...
[ 2016.05.17 01:27:00 ] Thulla Icin > /emote looks thoughtful. "But there's a part of me that does want some break from fighting all the time."
[ 2016.05.17 01:27:12 ] Thulla Icin > /emote nods. "Thanks."
[ 2016.05.17 01:27:33 ] Aria Jenneth > ... well ... would you be willing, maybe, to ... try being a counselor for a bit?
[ 2016.05.17 01:27:49 ] Aria Jenneth > You saw ... the bustle on the ... way in, right?
[ 2016.05.17 01:28:09 ] Thulla Icin > /emote nods. "Yeah?"
[ 2016.05.17 01:28:41 ] Aria Jenneth > ... there's a certain ... heretical pilot, who calls himself "Nauplius."
[ 2016.05.17 01:28:56 ] Thulla Icin > /emote nods.
[ 2016.05.17 01:29:37 ] Aria Jenneth > He's ... kind of like the very worst Amarrian a ... Republic propaganda office could come up with. His ... idea of God is ...
[ 2016.05.17 01:30:36 ] Aria Jenneth > ... a god of hate ... and blood, and ... power. He ... thinks the Minmatar, as a people, are ... "given over for destruction." That means he treats his captives ... as though they were in Hell.
[ 2016.05.17 01:30:49 ] Aria Jenneth > TCMCs, multiple ... strains of Vitoxin ...
[ 2016.05.17 01:31:52 ] Aria Jenneth > ... being worked nearly to death, then ... sacrificed on altars to his god.
[ 2016.05.17 01:31:57 ] Aria Jenneth > That sort of ... awful thing.
[ 2016.05.17 01:32:31 ] Thulla Icin > /emote twitches, her breathing a little unsteady, before she takes repeated calming breathes.
[ 2016.05.17 01:32:43 ] Aria Jenneth > He's ... retiring, which ... is a mercy. I managed to get some of his ... prisoners ... out of his hands.
[ 2016.05.17 01:32:55 ] Aria Jenneth > *quietly* ... about thirty three thousand of them.
[ 2016.05.17 01:34:38 ] Aria Jenneth > ... Between the brainwashing and the TCMC's, probably most of them think they're ... on temporary loan from Hell or something.
[ 2016.05.17 01:35:11 ] Thulla Icin > /emote smiles a tearful smile. "That's a good thing. What . . . what's going to happen to them now."
[ 2016.05.17 01:35:41 ] Aria Jenneth > ... We'll try to ... make sure they live through the next ... few days, to start.
[ 2016.05.17 01:36:19 ] Thulla Icin > /emote nods slowly.
[ 2016.05.17 01:36:23 ] Aria Jenneth > If ... possible, we need to boost their spirits; help them ... fight through it until we can come up with effective treatments.
[ 2016.05.17 01:37:31 ] Aria Jenneth > It may help them to ... meet ... another Matari believer, who's not Sani-influenced.
[ 2016.05.17 01:38:07 ] Aria Jenneth > ... and who hasn't been ... treated ... as they were.
[ 2016.05.17 01:38:32 ] Thulla Icin > /emote looks away a bit. "Oh."
[ 2016.05.17 01:39:06 ] Thulla Icin > I, um . . . I.
[ 2016.05.17 01:39:15 ] Aria Jenneth > ... we'll understand if you can't.
[ 2016.05.17 01:40:29 ] Thulla Icin > /emote swallows. "Ah, I mean . . . I wasn't . . ." She sighs. "I wasn't treated as badly as they were."
[ 2016.05.17 01:40:49 ] Aria Jenneth > ... hardly anyone ever is, Thulla.
[ 2016.05.17 01:41:22 ] Aria Jenneth > These aren't ... slaves off some Amarrian plantation. They've been ... prisoners of a madman who literally showed them his vision of damnation.
[ 2016.05.17 01:43:10 ] Aria Jenneth > . . . .
[ 2016.05.17 01:43:30 ] Aria Jenneth > I'm ... sorry. I'm sorry. I shouldn't ask you to do such things so ... soon. Um.
[ 2016.05.17 01:44:21 ] Thulla Icin > /emote shakes her head. "No, no . . . but . . . I was a slave, too, and I still haven't gotten over it."
[ 2016.05.17 01:44:44 ] Aria Jenneth > ...?
[ 2016.05.17 01:44:51 ] Aria Jenneth > ... Oh.
[ 2016.05.17 01:45:53 ] Aria Jenneth > I'm sorry. I ...
[ 2016.05.17 01:48:24 ] Aria Jenneth > *nodnods solemnly*
[ 2016.05.17 01:49:43 ] Thulla Icin > /emote says in a quiet voice, "I'm sorry."
[ 2016.05.17 01:50:15 ] Aria Jenneth > ... I've ... never been a slave. It's ... an idea that scares me, kind of a lot.
[ 2016.05.17 01:51:00 ] Aria Jenneth > Particularly since, in some ways, being ... a heathen, here in the Empire, means that things could happen that ... could result in a collar being put on my neck. ... that would have to start with losing my license, though.
[ 2016.05.17 01:55:19 ] Thulla Icin > /emote looks down and is silent for a moment. "It's . . . yeah. There was a time, I think, when I wanted to inflict the same pain upon all Amarrians as I had had inflicted upon me. That's what slavery is to me."
[ 2016.05.17 01:55:35 ] Aria Jenneth > ... just ... pain?
[ 2016.05.17 01:57:23 ] Thulla Icin > Sometime physical pain, sometimes, not. A sort of deep spiritual pain from not having any freedom. A lot of hate.
[ 2016.05.17 01:59:45 ] Thulla Icin > It took a long time to move past that. But you always still struggle with it, a least a little. Slavery has chains that stay with you long after you get rid of the obvious ones.
[ 2016.05.17 02:04:03 ] Aria Jenneth > ... there's ... a sort-of friend ... well. An enemy, really, but ... a kind of cordial one ... who says I've never really seen it.
[ 2016.05.17 02:04:41 ] Thulla Icin > /emote looks inquisitive.
[ 2016.05.17 02:04:52 ] Aria Jenneth > ... the ... face of slavery, here.
[ 2016.05.17 02:05:16 ] Thulla Icin > /emote nods. "ah."
[ 2016.05.17 02:05:31 ] Aria Jenneth > It might be true. ... But I know some of the ... things that happen.
[ 2016.05.17 02:06:41 ] Aria Jenneth > ... for me ... the Empire is another ... place in the world. Neither a great beacon-- though four thousand years of civilization is impressive-- nor a great terror.
[ 2016.05.17 02:06:53 ] Thulla Icin > /emote nods.
[ 2016.05.17 02:08:21 ] Thulla Icin > It's a terror for me, but . . . the Republic, my home . . . well, it isn't really home anymore.
[ 2016.05.17 02:08:50 ] Aria Jenneth > ... I did once ... spend a few days as a prisoner, waiting to learn whether I was going to be shot. Those are the ... first days I remember. That was the State, though.
[ 2016.05.17 02:09:22 ] Thulla Icin > My parents tried to understand, they did! But I could see the pain on their faces, the shame I caused. And most folks didn't bother trying.
[ 2016.05.17 02:09:43 ] Aria Jenneth > ... by ... believing in God, you mean?
[ 2016.05.17 02:09:52 ] Thulla Icin > Yeah.
[ 2016.05.17 02:10:33 ] Aria Jenneth > ... well ... you probably ... came to the right place, in the Empire, Thulla.
[ 2016.05.17 02:11:26 ] Aria Jenneth > The Societas is ... dedicated to Reclaiming in the vision of the Pax Amarria-- Reclaiming by reason and persuasion, not by laser and shackle.
[ 2016.05.17 02:11:31 ] Thulla Icin > /emote nods. "People . . . people here have been really nice so far."
[ 2016.05.17 02:12:33 ] Aria Jenneth > This ... room, and these quarters ... are kind of what made me love SFRIM, when I first came.
[ 2016.05.17 02:12:48 ] Aria Jenneth > Capsuleers ... making their own meals. Cleaning their own dishes....
[ 2016.05.17 02:14:08 ] Aria Jenneth > ... social rank doesn't disappear completely, but ... to the degree it ever goes away in the Empire, it does so here.
[ 2016.05.17 02:14:15 ] Thulla Icin > /emote smiles. "Don't have to sell me on that idea, i like the idea that I'm among people who aren't afraid to get a little dirty and actually live a bit."
[ 2016.05.17 02:15:17 ] Aria Jenneth > It's neat to see, isn't it?
[ 2016.05.17 02:15:35 ] Aria Jenneth > Um. ... So-- something I said ... earlier, I maybe should clarify ...
[ 2016.05.17 02:15:41 ] Thulla Icin > /emote nods enthusastically. "Yeah."
[ 2016.05.17 02:15:48 ] Thulla Icin > Mm?
[ 2016.05.17 02:16:14 ] Aria Jenneth > I mentioned I'm technically a servant. ... that's, to Lunarisse. The Directrix.
[ 2016.05.17 02:17:02 ] Thulla Icin > Oh! Right!
[ 2016.05.17 02:17:24 ] Aria Jenneth > I'm a sworn retainer. ... basically her aide, um, plus a few other roles.
[ 2016.05.17 02:18:12 ] Thulla Icin > /emote nods
[ 2016.05.17 02:18:39 ] Aria Jenneth > ... bodyguard ...
[ 2016.05.17 02:20:06 ] Aria Jenneth > ... also someone she can ... fly at things she wants killed. The hawk on her glove. That often seems to kind of be my primary role.
[ 2016.05.17 02:21:01 ] Thulla Icin > Sounds kind of intriguing when you put it that way, actually.
[ 2016.05.17 02:21:37 ] Aria Jenneth > *quietly* Well ... I don't believe in your god, or hers, but ... I do believe in her.
[ 2016.05.17 02:21:42 ] Aria Jenneth > It's a lot of why I stay.
[ 2016.05.17 02:22:02 ] Braeyon Cussier > /emote enters and proceeds to a vacant seat, making a wave to the others with a brief smile. He sits down where he can have some privacy.
[ 2016.05.17 02:22:50 ] Aria Jenneth > *waves happily in return*
[ 2016.05.17 02:24:31 ] Aria Jenneth > Um-- Sir Cussier? ... If you ... have a little time, later-- could you visit Medical? They ... we ... need some help and guidance, and I really can't ... handle it all on my own.
[ 2016.05.17 02:24:41 ] Thulla Icin > /emote gives a wave, then starts to awkwardly bow, but sees the others don't and recalls that this is an 'informal' area and so stops, seeming releaved.
[ 2016.05.17 02:25:35 ] Varcutii Renalard > /emote wandered into the Lamp from the station beyond. She made a straight line to the kitchen, relatively oblivious to the lamp's occupants, on something of an autopilot...
[ 2016.05.17 02:26:01 ] Braeyon Cussier > /emote looks over to Aria, lifting an eyebrow and smiles. "What sort of help do you need, Ms. Jenneth?"
[ 2016.05.17 02:27:03 ] Aria Jenneth > ... um. We have thirty-three thousand temporary guests who ... think they've been through Hell, and sort of have, and ... even with the staff helping and running most things ...
[ 2016.05.17 02:28:22 ] Aria Jenneth > ... basically-- anything you can do, or get other SFRIM pilots to help with-- there's going to be sort of an endless list, which ... Ms. Renalard and I have been working on, but ...
[ 2016.05.17 02:29:05 ] Braeyon Cussier > /emote blinks at Jenneth. "Would you consider providing me an update of what it's about, Ms. Jenneth? I've been.. uhm.. busy", he said.
[ 2016.05.17 02:30:12 ] Aria Jenneth > ... well ... this is a development of about the last day, anyway, so ...
[ 2016.05.17 02:30:49 ] Aria Jenneth > I gave Nauplius a hug. He gave me his prisoner collection. ... I think we both walked away with what we wanted, so-- a good deal by definition, I guess?
[ 2016.05.17 02:31:36 ] Aria Jenneth > He's retiring and couldn't take them all with him. I'm grateful he didn't just space them all.
[ 2016.05.17 02:32:19 ] Thulla Icin > /emote sputters. "Wait, is this literal? The hug, I mean? Or is that a wierd metaphor for killing people?"
[ 2016.05.17 02:32:32 ] Braeyon Cussier > /emote scratches his neck gently. "Well.. that's quite the surprise, coming from Nauplius", he said and then smirks. "Atleast he came to his senses in the end."
[ 2016.05.17 02:33:27 ] Aria Jenneth > No-- it's literal. He ... um. Apparently has a crush on me.
[ 2016.05.17 02:34:08 ] Braeyon Cussier > So the heretic had a heart, after all. Unbelievable.
[ 2016.05.17 02:34:13 ] Braeyon Cussier > /emote shook his head.
[ 2016.05.17 02:35:00 ] Aria Jenneth > ... yeah. One of the scariest things about him has ... kind of long been that he's not a sociopath-- just a megalomaniacal zealot.
[ 2016.05.17 02:35:35 ] Aria Jenneth > He's shown empathy in a bunch of ways. Just ... not to people ... he thought God wanted him to hate.
[ 2016.05.17 02:37:01 ] Thulla Icin > That's, um . . . I'm gonna stay far away from that one.
[ 2016.05.17 02:37:12 ] Braeyon Cussier > Hrm.. In my book, truth be told, he has never shown empathy. Only his unsatiable lust of-.. uh.. blood.
[ 2016.05.17 02:37:53 ] Braeyon Cussier > I said it before and I say so again, his zeal was misplaced - but admirable.
[ 2016.05.17 02:38:01 ] Aria Jenneth > ... well-- if you can catch him on a topic other than his faith, he sounds reasonable right up until ... God comes up again.
[ 2016.05.17 02:38:42 ] Thulla Icin > Huh.
[ 2016.05.17 02:39:14 ] Aria Jenneth > ... or Minmatar. Or ... um. Anything to do with sex? ... which I'm actually pretty grateful for right now.
[ 2016.05.17 02:39:36 ] Aria Jenneth > He was a complete gentleman.
[ 2016.05.17 02:40:01 ] Aria Jenneth > ... which ... considering other things he'd said ... yeah.
[ 2016.05.17 02:40:16 ] Braeyon Cussier > /emote looks away briefly and turns his gaze once more to Aria. "So, these.. 'slaves'.. he released, uhm.. when are we going to send them off to their respective family or.. holders?"
[ 2016.05.17 02:40:51 ] Aria Jenneth > The ... timetable and destinations really haven't been set, sir.
[ 2016.05.17 02:41:09 ] Thulla Icin > /emote raises an eyebrow. "I really don't think I want to know. And I usually do want to know."
[ 2016.05.17 02:41:13 ] Aria Jenneth > ... right now it's a matter of making sure they survive.
[ 2016.05.17 02:41:23 ] Braeyon Cussier > /emote scratches his neck, he seems to be somewhat distracted by his own thoughts. "Ah, I see, I see..."
[ 2016.05.17 02:46:10 ] Braeyon Cussier > /emote rubs the back of his head with his palm and looks down at the table. It sure seems that he's more declined to ponder on whatever his thoughts went, his face expression became blank, yet a faint stain of.. sadness?
[ 2016.05.17 02:47:18 ] Varcutii Renalard > /emote stepped out of the kitchen after a few minutes with an ample bowl of vanilla ice cream, and a spoon. Both were taken to a chair not far from the bar. There, she sat back, closed her eyes, and took a slow breath in before exhaling.
[ 2016.05.17 02:48:28 ] Braeyon Cussier > /emote 's palm went from the back of his head to his forehead, stroking with his palm at it. A faint sigh escapes him.
[ 2016.05.17 02:49:38 ] Aria Jenneth > *quietly* You're ... not the only person that this situation ... troubles a little, Ms. Icin.
[ 2016.05.17 02:50:38 ] Aria Jenneth > I think it's kind of a problem for a lot of us, maybe including the Directrix.
[ 2016.05.17 02:51:01 ] Thulla Icin > /emote nods.
[ 2016.05.17 02:51:16 ] Aria Jenneth > We're ... a law-abiding entity, though, so ... *sad little smile*
[ 2016.05.17 02:51:22 ] Aria Jenneth > It makes things a little hard sometimes.
[ 2016.05.17 02:53:09 ] Varcutii Renalard > /emote subsequently turned her attention to her ice cream and had a little as she gradually took a few moments to note there were only a couple people in the lamp too!
[ 2016.05.17 02:54:42 ] Braeyon Cussier > /emote 's gaze is fixated on the table, the faint sad gaze becoming more apparent. He put his elbows at the table and put his face in the palms. "God, give me strength", he whispered and released a sigh, rubbing his face gently with his palms.
[ 2016.05.17 02:57:07 ] Aria Jenneth > ... okay, really hard.
[ 2016.05.17 02:58:04 ] Aria Jenneth > *she waves a little tiredly to Var*
[ 2016.05.17 02:58:14 ] Thulla Icin > /emote nods a bit.
[ 2016.05.17 03:00:21 ] Aria Jenneth > ... oh-- I haven't introduced anyone ...
[ 2016.05.17 03:00:23 ] Varcutii Renalard > /emote took a moment to register Aria's prescence and smiled. She lifted her spoon, complete with ice cream and seemingly offered it to the Achur. > It's good..
[ 2016.05.17 03:00:23 ] Thulla Icin > Once upon a time, I didn't give a damn about the rules. Now . . . well, I don't know how much I do for their own sake. But I promised the boss -- Lunarise -- that I'd follow the laws of the Empire. Even if it's sometimes annoying.
[ 2016.05.17 03:01:53 ] Braeyon Cussier > /emote raised his voice for them to hear. "God tests us in many ways, mind you".
[ 2016.05.17 03:02:47 ] Aria Jenneth > ... *she cocks her head, looking at the spoon, and half-reaching to accept* Are you sure?
[ 2016.05.17 03:03:31 ] Varcutii Renalard > /emote winked at aria tiredly > I'm not afraid of getting 'chura cooties on this clone... i 'assure ya..
[ 2016.05.17 03:04:05 ] Aria Jenneth > ... okay ... *accepts*
[ 2016.05.17 03:04:21 ] Aria Jenneth > mmp.. 's good.
[ 2016.05.17 03:04:32 ] Varcutii Renalard > /emote proceeds to feed Aria from the spoon! ... with a cheery smile..
[ 2016.05.17 03:05:38 ] Aria Jenneth > Um. Thank you, Var ... er-- Ms. Icin? This is Varcutii Renalard, of ... um, I think the Mandate. Ms. Renalard, Thulla Icin.
[ 2016.05.17 03:06:49 ] Aria Jenneth > ... Um. And the ... literally noble gentleman over there is Sir Braeyon Cussier. Um. Sir? Is it "sir," properly, or ... "Lord?" I'm sorry ...
[ 2016.05.17 03:07:27 ] Thulla Icin > /emote smiles. "Heya."
[ 2016.05.17 03:07:31 ] Varcutii Renalard > Yeah. I'm Var. Nice ta meet ya Ms. Icin. I'm from out in Derelik .. But..heard about how nice everyone is here and decided to join up.
[ 2016.05.17 03:10:15 ] Thulla Icin > /emote smiles. "They've been pretty nice to me, and I used to be from the Republic, so can't disagree on the niceness front."
[ 2016.05.17 03:11:56 ] Varcutii Renalard > /emote returns to her ice cream for a moment and then looks to Thulla > Yeah. Everyone's so chill here. It's great.
[ 2016.05.17 03:12:32 ] Thulla Icin > /emote grins.
[ 2016.05.17 03:12:49 ] Braeyon Cussier > /emote looks over at Aria. "Lord, Sir.. or just Braeyon.."
[ 2016.05.17 03:13:35 ] Varcutii Renalard > So, what do you fly Ms. Icin?
[ 2016.05.17 03:14:52 ] Thulla Icin > /emote smiles shrugs slightly. "Quite a number of things, really. But I like fast things best of all."
[ 2016.05.17 03:15:03 ] Varcutii Renalard > Rifters?
[ 2016.05.17 03:15:38 ] Aria Jenneth > Thank you, um-- *she glances at Thulla* This is where Amarr social things get a little tricky. We're in an ... informal setting, so Braeyon, but he's way above my rank, so ... Lord, but ... he seems to prefer informal, so Braeyon ...
[ 2016.05.17 03:17:04 ] Thulla Icin > /emote nods. "It's been a while since I've actually been in one, but I have fond memories from years ago in them."
[ 2016.05.17 03:17:21 ] Aria Jenneth > ... but if another Holder should pass by and choose to make an issue?-- my formal rank's actually only a notch above slave, so, maybe split the difference and go with "Sir?"
[ 2016.05.17 03:18:26 ] Braeyon Cussier > /emote smirks, rubbing his face with his palm. "When we are here, it's Braeyon. Behind the doors, I'm just either Lord Braeyon, Neophyte Braeyon or Sir Braeyon."
[ 2016.05.17 03:19:18 ] Thulla Icin > /emote laughs a bit. "I see what you mean about it being complex."
[ 2016.05.17 03:20:43 ] Aria Jenneth > Um. ... To be clear, by "behind the doors," you mean ... here? Or ...
[ 2016.05.17 03:21:34 ] Braeyon Cussier > /emote sighs. "Outside these doors, I am Lord Braeyon, Neophyte Braeyon or Sir Braeyon. But here, where we can be informal, it's just Braeyon."
[ 2016.05.17 03:22:10 ] Varcutii Renalard > /emote looked to braeyon vaguely blankly... 98% of that'd likely gone over her head in its current state. Resolutely she just returned her attention back to the ice cream in her bowl..
[ 2016.05.17 03:22:47 ] Aria Jenneth > ... that makes more sense-- I'm sorry.
[ 2016.05.17 03:23:41 ] Braeyon Cussier > Ah don't worry about it..
[ 2016.05.17 03:23:55 ] Aria Jenneth > ... I should probably ... go and check on things in Medical. Are they ... okay? -ish ... down there, Varcutii?
[ 2016.05.17 03:24:10 ] Aria Jenneth > At all?
[ 2016.05.17 03:24:14 ] Braeyon Cussier > /emote looks briefly over to the redhead, the one Aria spoke to.
[ 2016.05.17 03:24:17 ] Varcutii Renalard > Yeah, They're okay....
[ 2016.05.17 03:24:56 ] Varcutii Renalard > Every one's great, just busy. Very busy...
[ 2016.05.17 03:25:25 ] Aria Jenneth > ... Vitoc withdrawal symptoms should be showing up regularly by now ...
[ 2016.05.17 03:25:35 ] Varcutii Renalard > Mmhmm.
[ 2016.05.17 03:25:42 ] Aria Jenneth > I'd better go see. Um. Please excuse me ...
[ 2016.05.17 03:26:02 ] Varcutii Renalard > Take care..
[ 2016.05.17 03:26:10 ] Thulla Icin > /emote smiles at her. "Nice to meet you!"
[ 2016.05.17 03:26:38 ] Aria Jenneth > ... and you! *she bows hastily to the three on her way out the door*
