    RP - Membership Interview of Loai Qerl

    Channel Name: 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.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 model of a Silver Magnate hands on the wall along with a sign with a quote from the Tourney.A small sign mentions "For Desserts, Consider Bel's Splendid Ice Cream "

    [ 2016.07.24 14:53:29 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote enters. She finds a corner table and takes a seat where she can view the entrance.
    [ 2016.07.24 14:56:39 ] Knight Lord Acaeleus > /emote walks into the area, looks around for a moment before sitting at a table on the far side of the room, back to the wall and orders a drink.
    [ 2016.07.24 14:57:29 ] Loai Qerl > /emote enters, and ducks directly into the hallway leading to the bathrooms, nearly tripping in her fancy new shoes. She spends a handful of minutes in there, and emerges eventually with a fresh coat of top-shelf cosmetics on her face.
    [ 2016.07.24 14:57:42 ] Loai Qerl > "Directrix!" She waves.
    [ 2016.07.24 14:59:48 ] Loai Qerl > "Oh. Um. Potential Directrix. Sorry." Hastily, a little abashedly, she drops into a seat across from Lunarisse.
    [ 2016.07.24 15:00:14 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote gives a soft chuckle. "Hello Ms. Qerl, thank you for coming to see me."
    [ 2016.07.24 15:00:55 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote pads dutifully in, looks around, then approaches and bows to Luna and Loai (it's a practiced, formal Amarrian bow, Dam Torsad-style)*
    [ 2016.07.24 15:01:21 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods in acknowledgement to Aria "Have a seat"
    [ 2016.07.24 15:01:35 ] Aria Jenneth > Yes, Directrix. *does as bid*
    [ 2016.07.24 15:01:41 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says to Loai "I've been seeing you in the Good Word for some time. I understand you want to apply to join the Society?"
    [ 2016.07.24 15:02:52 ] Loai Qerl > Visibly relieved, Loai beams. "Thank YOU! I'm...oh. Yes. I know I'm nothing special, but it feels right, you know?"
    [ 2016.07.24 15:03:29 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Can I order a drink or something for you to eat?" She pauses "And why does it feel right?"
    [ 2016.07.24 15:05:53 ] Aria Jenneth > *just listens quietly*
    [ 2016.07.24 15:05:53 ] Loai Qerl > "I'm really too nervous to eat anything, but thanks." Scratching under her high collar, she glances uneasily at Aria. "I don't know how to describe the rightness really, it's just...warm? And godly, of course, but not like a Golden Day sermon."
    [ 2016.07.24 15:06:57 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Well.. not too warm I hope. Unlike what the Butcher and some others think, we aspire to Heaven and not Hell"
    [ 2016.07.24 15:08:17 ] Loai Qerl > "Oh, of course! I just mean it's very human, is all. What with the whole, um, clone thing, it's a nice feeling."
    [ 2016.07.24 15:09:02 ] Loai Qerl > "You know how it gets sometimes. Maybe. Like oh, everyone says this is godly but IS it? Really?"
    [ 2016.07.24 15:09:27 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote tilts her head slightly. "What do you think it is?"
    [ 2016.07.24 15:10:56 ] Loai Qerl > /emote flushes, clearly embarassed. "It's not my place to say! I don't mean anything by that really! It's just such a change, is all. I'm sorry, I think I'm probably blaspheming a little."
    [ 2016.07.24 15:11:56 ] Aria Jenneth > *Aria's left eyebrow kind of twitches, just a bit*
    [ 2016.07.24 15:12:06 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Well.. I am very interested in what you have to say.. and think. One aspect of the Society is I expect my members to be able to think about why and who they are in the Empire"
    [ 2016.07.24 15:15:10 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "So.. what do you think about,.. capsuleerdom and God?"
    [ 2016.07.24 15:16:03 ] Loai Qerl > "...oh." Restlessly, she fusses a hair ornament into a more comfortable position. "In that case, I suppose it feels like being a lot closer to God than I'm used to. Flying people around who might be blown up if I decide to do something foolish?"
    [ 2016.07.24 15:16:11 ] Loai Qerl > "Shrugging off one's own death?"
    [ 2016.07.24 15:16:37 ] Loai Qerl > "It makes me worry so much. Like I'm sort of a blasphemy myself."
    [ 2016.07.24 15:16:46 ] Loai Qerl > "What if I'm doing it all wrong?"
    [ 2016.07.24 15:17:53 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "It is right to be mindful of those in your care.. and .. even as a clone.. I'd hope one isn't frivolous with the gift of life, however recieved..." she frowns, more to herself "Even now the Theology Council is debating the latter point. -c-
    [ 2016.07.24 15:18:06 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > I think it's good that you are.. cognitant of those.. questions"
    [ 2016.07.24 15:19:11 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote shifts gears and asks abruptly "Tell me.. what do you think the essence of the Amarr Faith is?"
    [ 2016.07.24 15:20:59 ] Loai Qerl > Big wide eyes. She blurts: "Discipline!"
    [ 2016.07.24 15:21:15 ] Aria Jenneth > *cocks her head*
    [ 2016.07.24 15:21:25 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Can you elaborate?"
    [ 2016.07.24 15:24:10 ] Loai Qerl > "Oh no, I mean, I....agh. Sorry. I mean it's, um, knowing what's right and living in a world with so many not-right things, and...I'm sorry, I'm not explaining this very well. It's self-control, I think I'm trying to say. I mean, it's more complicated."
    [ 2016.07.24 15:25:08 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says lightly "Can you explain how your view of the Amarr Faith and some of your prior .. corporation affiliation choices align?"
    [ 2016.07.24 15:26:38 ] Loai Qerl > /emote palms her face, looking more than a little flustered. "That was a trick! I didn't know anything about her, and when I got the invitation to join, I thouht: oh! A scientific corporation, my parents would LOVE that, and then..."
    [ 2016.07.24 15:27:15 ] Loai Qerl > "and then I actually read the acceptance message and realized that I was probably going STRAIGHT to hell immediately and I quit as soon as I could."
    [ 2016.07.24 15:27:38 ] Loai Qerl > "It's the stupidest thing I have EVER done."
    [ 2016.07.24 15:27:51 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods slightly and says, with a trace of amusement maybe "Do you find you sometimes are impulsive?"
    [ 2016.07.24 15:30:55 ] Loai Qerl > "...yes. I'm not nearly humble enough, either. That's part of why I'm so worried. I'm trying to be worthy of all this ridiculous power, but there's a lot to learn and terrible things could happen any time. I've already learned some from SFRIM, truly."
    [ 2016.07.24 15:31:39 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods. "We all continue to grow in God's garden. Hopefully we turn out to be flowers and not weeds."
    [ 2016.07.24 15:32:16 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Have you ceased all contact with Funk since that.. unfortunate impulsive moment?"
    [ 2016.07.24 15:34:17 ] Loai Qerl > "Mostly. All right, no. I talked with her a few times afterward. Not for a while, but I thought that maybe if she thought I was amusing or something I could be a wholesome influence. I don't think it worked."
    [ 2016.07.24 15:34:30 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "It won't."
    [ 2016.07.24 15:35:35 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "To.. remember an Achuran fable. a Scorpion will always remain thus. Can you .. be disciplined enough to avoid any further direct communications with her other than the public router, aka, Intergalactic Summit?"
    [ 2016.07.24 15:36:44 ] Loai Qerl > "Honestly I think I'd prefer that at this point. Did you know she had a slaver hound boyfriend? BOYFRIEND? Oh my God,"
    [ 2016.07.24 15:36:53 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote shudders...
    [ 2016.07.24 15:37:01 ] Loai Qerl > "...ex. He died. I know!"
    [ 2016.07.24 15:37:09 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > *sourly* Some day she and her kind will be purged"
    [ 2016.07.24 15:38:50 ] Loai Qerl > "I really shouldn't have mentioned the hound thing. I'm sorry. I won't have anything to do with her, ever. Or any of her corporation, or Raiders, or....ugh. Just no."
    [ 2016.07.24 15:39:21 ] Loai Qerl > /emote pulls a grimace and sticks out her tongue in disgust. Ew.
    [ 2016.07.24 15:39:36 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "We are not.. a combat focused organization. That being said.. from time to time.. we have come to blows against her organization. Will you have any issues with that?"
    [ 2016.07.24 15:40:10 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote stares at Loia, tryinng to make sure this whole episode was really an accident and not some latent sympathy.
    [ 2016.07.24 15:40:23 ] Loai Qerl > "Other than being very bad at shooting people? Oh, no. I'd feel awful if I had to shoot her, but I think I could do it?"
    [ 2016.07.24 15:40:42 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote relaxes. "What are you good at?"
    [ 2016.07.24 15:40:48 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "In space, that is?"
    [ 2016.07.24 15:43:01 ] Loai Qerl > "Oh. In space I'm good at inconveniencing rocks, mainly, And diplomacy. I know whenever you see me I'm running my mouth about something frivolous but in the Academy I have a special commendation for letters and rhetoric. So there's that."
    [ 2016.07.24 15:45:01 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods.
    [ 2016.07.24 15:45:38 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "The Society has a diverse set of pilots. Most of the faith. A handful are not."
    [ 2016.07.24 15:46:00 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote glances briefly at Aria, then back to Loai "Is this an issue?"
    [ 2016.07.24 15:46:15 ] Loai Qerl > "I did sort of notice that." Tiny flick of the eyes to Aria. "How does that, um, work."
    [ 2016.07.24 15:47:25 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Those who are not promise to abide by the Empire's laws while with us, and not to publicly disparage the Faith or the Empire. Usually.. they have a specific role they are tasked to fill. Others.." she shrugs innocently "I might have my own purposes."
    [ 2016.07.24 15:47:51 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "90% of the Society is, however,. of the Faith and citizens of the Empire."
    [ 2016.07.24 15:49:36 ] Aria Jenneth > *simply sits quietly, listening*
    [ 2016.07.24 15:49:55 ] Loai Qerl > "Oh, that's good then. A wholesome influence! Ha. I was sort of wondering. Godness knows it's not bothersome, and it's really not proper for me to tell you how to run things."
    [ 2016.07.24 15:50:32 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods slightly.
    [ 2016.07.24 15:51:57 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "We are not an abolitionist corporation. However we do have decided views on the issue of slavery."
    [ 2016.07.24 15:53:01 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Focusing on their rehabilitive and theological aspects. I am sure you reviewed our recruiting materials so I won't belabor the point"
    [ 2016.07.24 15:53:19 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "What is your view of the purpose of slavery in today's Empire?"
    [ 2016.07.24 15:54:37 ] Loai Qerl > /emote looks much more collected now, and nods in agreement to the mention of recruiting materials. "It's part of the natural order, I've always thought. We all have our place, and theirs is to serve in a more direct capacity, you know?"
    [ 2016.07.24 15:54:58 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "to what end?"
    [ 2016.07.24 15:56:46 ] Loai Qerl > "To enable those whose places are different to serve THEIR places more fully, I've always thought. Some labor in the fields, some need to spend all their time spreading the Word, and apparently God says I need to inconvenience rocks."
    [ 2016.07.24 15:57:12 ] Loai Qerl > "If I was laboring in a field I'd never have the time to figure out the rest of what He wants from me. It's all a balance!"
    [ 2016.07.24 15:58:20 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods slightly "We do all have vocations."
    [ 2016.07.24 15:59:16 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote ponders Loai's remarks and asks "Do you feel.. that they sub-human or do you simply feel they have a different place assigned by God?"
    [ 2016.07.24 16:02:19 ] Loai Qerl > /emote blinks, surprised. "Oh, they're human. They're slaves, but they're human. If they weren't, God would have given them the forms of beasts or something, no? Like hounds. Or rhenu--oxen? Oxen. I think it's sort of His way of giving them hope."
    [ 2016.07.24 16:03:11 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote gives a non-committal murmer. She nods. "Well.. I have enjoyed talking with you. Do you have any questions of me before we finish this interview?"
    [ 2016.07.24 16:05:46 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote gives an encouraging smile.
    [ 2016.07.24 16:07:25 ] Loai Qerl > "Mmm. I did, actually. I was wondering about SFRIM's wormhole work? It's fascinating! I was going to ask what sort of training would be best for somebody who wanted to be able to do that, one day."
    [ 2016.07.24 16:08:27 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Well.. we don't specifically have 'wormhole' work, but we do have pilots who explore in them and we also run drifter missions there. The talents you need depends on which aspect you want to do."
    [ 2016.07.24 16:09:20 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Abiom and Reinheart Novan are good for the first, and Ali is good for the second, in terms of ad vice.
    [ 2016.07.24 16:10:00 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "If you still want to join us, it'd be my pleasure to send you an invite now."
    [ 2016.07.24 16:10:08 ] Loai Qerl > Excited flappy hands! "It's the drifter thing I was thinking of! It all sounds so glamorous, and it's scientific-"
    [ 2016.07.24 16:10:11 ] Loai Qerl > "Really?"
    [ 2016.07.24 16:10:23 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods.
    [ 2016.07.24 16:11:12 ] Loai Qerl > Squeak. She actually squeaks. "It's an honor! Thank you so much! Oh, I can call you Directrix now!"
    [ 2016.07.24 16:12:42 ] Aria Jenneth > ... congratulations, Ms. Qerl.
    [ 2016.07.24 16:14:11 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Yes."
    [ 2016.07.24 16:14:23 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote smiles. "Nowforgive me I need to go. Perhaps Aria can show you to the Lamp?"
    [ 2016.07.24 16:14:28 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "It's n Nahyeen.. still"
    [ 2016.07.24 16:15:00 ] Loai Qerl > "Of course. Godspeed and all--hee. Directrix. Be well."
    [ 2016.07.24 16:15:25 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote rises, "be well" and departs.
