Mar 13b

[13:09] Happy: so… you should start with what Dan has gotten from Lucia
[13:10] Shadowcaller: Well, he gets both things.
[13:13] Happy: I mean, IC. :P
[13:15] Shadowcaller: Err… He gets the message? I'm not sure what you mean.
[13:17] Aegnor: So, Dan gets the original message from when Lucia was being kidnapped
[13:18] Aegnor: and passes it along to the people who can actually leave their apartments
[13:18] Happy: i means putting it in the timeline of what Dan is doing.
[13:18] Aegnor: Then he paces around in his room restlessly.
[13:20] Shadowcaller: And then he gets the second message.
[13:21] Aegnor: about what?
[13:21] Happy: it's a text message that just says '41'
[13:22] Aegnor: well yeah, he passes that one along aswell
[13:24] Happy: then the interrogation from hell happens :P
[13:24] Shadowcaller: Yeah…
[13:26] Shadowcaller: "Hehe…"?:P
[13:27] Shadowcaller: [02:25] Happy: "….What?! You said nobody would get hurt!"
[02:26] Shadowcaller: "As long as he goes along with it, everything should be fine."
[02:28] Shadowcaller: "We aren't thugs."
[02:30] Happy: Lucia starts crying again.
[13:29] Happy: I guess she takes the phone
[13:29] Shadowcaller: The woman mutters something about professionals and the doors of the cars unlocks.
[13:29] Shadowcaller: *Car
[13:30] Shadowcaller: "…get out."
[13:33] Shadowcaller: "We are done, get a napkin or something, you won't be harmed."
[13:35] Happy: ?
[13:35] Happy: they aren't having her make the phone call?
[13:36] Shadowcaller: (Wait I thought… Let's recon that.)
[13:38] Shadowcaller: "Lucia, just make the call, we are very reasonable."
[13:38] Shadowcaller: "Calm down."
[13:39] Happy: "You're going to kill Kara!" *cries*
[13:41] Shadowcaller: "We won't kill her… Ugh…" The woman takes up her handheld and calls the same number Again.
[13:41] Shadowcaller: (Sec.)
[13:49] Shadowcaller: "I need help here… She's crying, I don't know what to do."
[13:50] Shadowcaller: "…Umbra? Yeah, I don't think she will answer many other questions."
[13:51] Shadowcaller: "…yes, sorry. I will, I will."
[13:51] Shadowcaller: She turns it off again.
[13:51] Shadowcaller: "Lucia, listen to me. If you don't call Dan, we are going to hold you hostage instead."
[13:52] Shadowcaller: "And then I'm going to have to kill you if something goes wrong. Do you understand?" She speaks as calmly as she manages.
[13:53] Happy: Lucia nods through her tears.
[13:55] Shadowcaller: "So call him now."
[13:57] Happy: She does so
[13:58] Shadowcaller: Dan can hear a incoming call for his handheld.
[13:59] Shadowcaller: Unknown number.
[13:59] Aegnor: He answers. 'What is it?'
[14:01] Happy: "Dan… *sob* They're making me call you and they say they're going to kill me…"
[14:02] Aegnor: 'Lucia? Are you hurt?'
[14:04] Happy: "No, but they won't let me see Kara *sniffle* They say they're going to kill her too!" *almost wailing*
[14:05] Aegnor: 'What do they want?'
[14:06] Happy: She looks at the woman. "What do you want?"
[14:09] Shadowcaller: (Sec.)
[14:18] Shadowcaller: "Our demands are simple, we need access to information, namely Dan's information."
[14:19] Happy: "They… they want information…"
[14:22] Happy: "I think they want to arrest you for Branson's murder," she cries.
[14:23] Aegnor: 'Huh. Information? What do they think I'd know?'
[14:25] Happy: To the woman: "What infirmation?"
[14:27] Shadowcaller: "Namely, what happened at Dima. We want all details."
[14:31] Happy: Lucia has been turning up the volume so that Dan might be able to hear the woman speaking. "They *sniffle* want to know about some girl named Dima…"
[14:32] Shadowcaller: "No you idiot, we want to know what happened at the Dima system."
[14:35] Happy: "Dima system? Dan do you know what they are talking about? *sniffle*"
[14:35] Shadowcaller: "We know you have been there, the cruiser you went with was last seen in that area."
[14:37] Happy: "I think they mean the cold world."
[14:37] Shadowcaller: "Stop talking, you aren't contributing anything to this conversation."
[14:38] Happy: "But you wanted me to call him…"
[14:39] Aegnor: 'Dima. Dima…'
[14:40] Aegnor: (someone fill up the world thing >.>)
[14:40] Aegnor: 'Right, that place. Don't know anything about it.'
[14:41] Shadowcaller: "Turn up the volume, I like to hear it from him."
[14:41] Happy: (first world, that we never made it to. Infected with Protectors)
[14:42] Happy: She turns up the volume.
[14:42] Shadowcaller: "What did he say?"
[14:42] Happy: "He says he doesn't know."
[14:43] Shadowcaller: "Thats a lie D
[14:45] Happy: "Daaaaan, don't lie to them! They'll kill me!" *cries*
[14:45] Shadowcaller: *That's a lie Dan, want me to call in Vizek? He isn't going to be as friendly as me."
[14:47] Aegnor: 'Well what am I supposed to tell? The ship was going to Dima, then it was blown up at the gate and then I left the system on another ship.'
[14:50] Shadowcaller: "Not according to our information. The ship wasn't blown up at the gate. We have hard facts on that."
[14:51] Happy: (vikings at the olympics! (Link: )
[14:53] Shadowcaller: (Now they must introduce viking related sports at the next olympic.)
[14:55] Aegnor: 'Well, at least I don't remember anything past the jump.'
[14:55] Aegnor: 'Woke up in a blown up ship, got a ride from Kara and left the system.'
[14:57] Shadowcaller: "So she was there as well? Well, let me get Vizek to ask her a few questions then. Maybe she will talk a bit more."
[14:58] Shadowcaller: "Vizek gets quite angry if you lie to him Dan, I can'g guarantee her safety."
[14:58] Shadowcaller: *can't
[14:59] Happy: "You said you wouldn't hurt me!" *cries*
[14:59] Shadowcaller: "I'm not going top hurt you Lucia, if you tell us the truth, we are going to let you go."
[15:00] Shadowcaller: *to
[15:00] Aegnor: 'Why are you asking me this stuff anyway?'
[15:01] Shadowcaller: "You figure out that yourself Dan. I'm going to call Vizek now… Unless you got something to tell us?"
[15:01] Aegnor: 'I can't tell you something I don't know!'
[15:02] Shadowcaller: "Okay, so your story is that you woke up at a completely empty ship and then she somehow passed by, picked you up and leaved the system together?"
[15:03] Shadowcaller: "Right before it closed down?"
[15:03] Aegnor: 'Yup.'
[15:03] Shadowcaller: "Okay. Let's see if she have the same story."
[15:03] Aegnor: 'And why is it worth kidnapping random women? You could've just asked me.'
[15:04] Shadowcaller: The woman calls the same number. "Yeah, I got Dan on the phone right now. He can hear everything I say."
[15:06] Shadowcaller: "Yeah, his story is that he woke up at Eve-class that for some reason was derelict. Then the captain just happened to pass by and pick him up."
[15:06] Shadowcaller: "Uhu…"
[15:06] Shadowcaller: "Dan, there wasn't anyone there but you two?"
[15:08] Aegnor: 'Didn't you hear me? I woke up from cryofreeze by malfunction on a blown-up ship. Do you /think/ I was in the condition to see if there were any others?'
[15:09] Shadowcaller: "Yeah, only those two." The woman tells her handheld.
[15:11] Shadowcaller: "I tell him that."
[15:12] Aegnor: Meanwhile Dan sends a trace along the phone line
[15:12] Aegnor: and messages the contact with all this
[15:12] Shadowcaller: (How does that work exactly?)
[15:13] Happy: (trying to find out what satellites are transmitting the call)
[15:13] Aegnor: Tracking the phone. Like they do nowadays, except personal-use, more advanced, and since he has no access to the network he'll have to hack it.
[15:16] Shadowcaller: Okay, the satellite is church owned, so that might be a bit hard.
[15:17] Aegnor: Satellite like any other. It's not like the Church has any more powerful protection than the other factions.
[15:18] Shadowcaller: No, but it would be better protected then a neutral colony satellite
[15:20] Shadowcaller: "Your story isn't correct… Mind telling us why you are lying?"
[15:20] Shadowcaller: It takes a while to hack thought.
[15:20] Aegnor: 'You figure that out yourself.'
[15:20] Happy: "But he isn't!" Lucia says. "It was just us…" *sniffles*
[15:21] Shadowcaller: "I'm sorry you feel that way Dan, I told you we wouldn't take kindly to lies."
[15:21] Shadowcaller: The woman turns to Lucia.
[15:21] Aegnor: 'Then you might want to be more polite. Such as, send me a message asking it or invite me to a fancy dinner.'
[15:22] Shadowcaller: "Yeah, he refuses."
[15:22] Shadowcaller: She tells her handheld.
[15:23] Shadowcaller: She makes a face "That's… Yeah, okay."
[15:24] Happy: "Daaaaan! They're going to kill me!"
[15:24] Shadowcaller: "Dan, you have traveled with her. Exactly how long can she live with a hole in her suit?"
[15:25] Aegnor: 'Dunno.'
[15:26] Shadowcaller: "We will find out soon in any case."
[15:27] Shadowcaller: "Dan, I don't want to do this. But unless you tell us the truth right now. People are going to get hurt. People are getting hurt."
[15:28] Aegnor: 'People get hurt all the time.'
[15:28] Shadowcaller: She sigh and takes up her gun.
[15:29] Shadowcaller: "They do, but you can prevent that these two people are getting hurt by just sharing some information."
[15:30] Aegnor: 'Even if I had any information to share, why would I?'
[15:32] Shadowcaller: "We release them once you tell us the truth."
[15:32] Shadowcaller: Her handheld rings.
[15:32] Shadowcaller: "Yeah?"
[15:32] Shadowcaller: Dan manages to hack the satellite.
[15:33] Aegnor: 'The truth about what?'
[15:34] Shadowcaller: The woman ignores Dan this time and nods grimly as whoever is speaking in the other end tells her something. "Good, what else?"
[15:34] Shadowcaller: "Uhu…"
[15:35] Shadowcaller: She turns to Dan, "The truth about Isaac, Dan."
[15:36] Aegnor: 'Who the fuck? Look, I swear with my hand on my heart and on the name of the almighty Lord that I've never in my life set foot on Dima.'
[15:37] Shadowcaller: "I never claimed you did Dan." The woman tells him calmly "But you know something, who was Isaac Dan? What had happened to him?"
[15:37] Happy: "Isaac? My lover?"
[15:37] Aegnor: Dan is about to say something but stops.
[15:38] Aegnor: He looks at the tracing.
[15:38] Shadowcaller: They are in a moving car, moving between two cities.
[15:38] Aegnor: He relays the exact location to his contact and tries to find the other outgoing connection from the same car.
[15:39] Shadowcaller: He finds a outgoing connection to another moving car, going to a completely different location.
[15:40] Aegnor: He also sends that location. Next, he tries to find out which net link the woman is using for the connection in her computer
[15:40] Shadowcaller: (And how does that work?)
[15:40] Happy: "But Isaac is dead." *sniffle*
[15:41] Shadowcaller: "Don't lie to us. Last time you saw him, he was alive. I repeat, tell us what had happened to him."
[15:41] Aegnor: Mainly by logical guesswork: He knows she's using a connection from the car and roughly what kind it should be, he knows the location so he has an idea of the signal strength. He writes an automated scan program which searches the nearest net relay link databases for such a connection
[15:41] Aegnor: then if he finds a match, he manually checks the IP
[15:43] Happy: "Of course the last time I saw him he was alive. We had mangoes in bed." *sobs*
[15:43] Happy: "Did you know I wrote Pillow Whispers for him?"
[15:44] Shadowcaller: Okay, I guess that works.
[15:44] Shadowcaller: "Shut up, I want facts here."
[15:44] Shadowcaller: "Dan? Why aren't you replying?"
[15:45] Aegnor: 'What?'
[15:45] Shadowcaller: "What. Had. Happened. To. Isaac."
[15:45] Aegnor: 'Isaac?'
[15:46] Shadowcaller: "I know your lying now." She raises her gun towards Lucia "And another fucking lie and I blow her brains out. Do you understand me?"
[15:46] Aegnor: 'What?'
[15:46] Aegnor: Any matches?
[15:47] Shadowcaller: (What information does he get from that?)
[15:47] Aegnor: the IP-address of the computer
[15:47] Happy: "She's pointing a gun at me Dan! Dan! Make her stop!" *wailing*
[15:47] Aegnor: 'Hey, put the gun away so I can hear something over her.'
[15:48] Aegnor: Dan picks up a bunch of datachips and attaches them to his computer.
[15:50] Shadowcaller: She lowers the gun and Fires off a bullet into Lucias foot. The car lose control a bit and you can hear the driver shout "Are you out of your mind?!"
[15:50] Shadowcaller: He finds the IP adress.
[15:50] Shadowcaller: *Address
[15:50] Happy: Lucia doesn't have to act anymore. Now she cries for real. Owie. :(
[15:51] Aegnor: Dan doesn't say anything, focusing on his task.
[15:51] Aegnor: He sends a ping at the address and follows up with the most nasty collection of takeover viruses he has with him.
[15:51] Happy: "You * bitch! You shot me! Dan! She shot me!"
[15:53] Shadowcaller: The driver manages to get the car under control. The woman Lowers her gun, looking pretty angry, but also a bit unsure.
[15:54] Shadowcaller: "…just tell me the… Goddammit…" The connection to the other line it cut off.
[15:54] Shadowcaller: (AKA, to the other car.)
[15:54] Shadowcaller: *is
[15:55] Aegnor: Dan waits a moment before answering. 'Jesus christ lady, warn me first! You could've deafened me!'
[15:55] Shadowcaller: "Fuck you Dan!"
[15:57] Shadowcaller: She puts away her gun looking at her handheld, trying to call the same number again. She is sweating. "Come on… Come on…"
[15:57] Shadowcaller: The line on the other end doesn't reply.
[15:57] Aegnor: 'So you shot her?'
[15:58] Shadowcaller: "The next shot is in her head Dan, you got one chance."
[15:59] Aegnor: 'Do you have any idea who I am?'
[15:59] Aegnor: He speaks louder, as if angry. 'Do you really think I give a fuck? It's you who has one chance.' (how's the viruses doing) 'Give it up and you can get away. Don't, and I'm going to get you, your family, your home town and your little pet hamster too.'
[16:00] Shadowcaller: (They are taking over the computer just fine.)
[16:00] Aegnor: He flashes it open with warning lights
[16:00] Aegnor: then he starts trying to connect to anything nearby that can receive a signal to spread the viruses
[16:01] Aegnor: He doesn't think it's too likely she has a gun with a targeting computer, but the car might have something and at least her communication equipment will
[16:02] Aegnor: 'Oh, and your friend in the other car is dead.'
[16:04] Shadowcaller: The woman blinks, "Your lying. We have…" It's about here the virus spreads to her communication equipment.
[16:04] Shadowcaller: The car is an old model, it doesn't have much in the way of computers.
[16:05] Aegnor: It starts beeping, shining warning lights and shaking.
[16:05] Happy: Lucia watches for a chance to grab the gun.
[16:05] Happy: While still crying and playing dumb
[16:05] Aegnor: 'Just remember this. We /own/ this planet.'
[16:06] Aegnor: 'Did you happen to notice that not only can you not get a connection to the outside world anymore, we have your exact pinpointed location? I'd drop the gun and get out of the car right now, if I were you.'
[16:06] Aegnor: 'The other one was hit by a missile.'
[16:07] Shadowcaller: She seems to realize something as she looks at the communication equipment "…oh fuck."
[16:08] Shadowcaller: "Turn off the damn cell phone!" She shouts to Lucia, waving her gun towards her.
[16:08] Aegnor: He connects to her own cell. 'Hey there.'
[16:09] Shadowcaller: "Damn, damn, damn…"
[16:10] Happy: Lucia pushes buttons at random on the phone.
[16:10] Shadowcaller: She sigh, looking pretty bleak. "…we'll drop her off."
[16:11] Aegnor: 'Good to see you know reason. Now if you're still interested about what I know, what about making an honest offer? I work for money, not threats.'
[16:12] Shadowcaller: "You work for Marek, like you would have given us that information…"
[16:13] Happy: This is news to Lucia, who still thinks he works for Eden, but she says nothing.
[16:14] Happy: (and i have to nap. can you go ahead and have her ditch Lucia and go on without me?)
[16:14] Shadowcaller: (We could.)
[16:15] Aegnor: 'Marek? They think I work for the UEC, you know.'
[16:15] Happy: (*hugs* and *poof* Jus thave her pass out from pain or the sight of blood or something)
[16:15] Aegnor: Dan keeps transmitting the car's location to his contact. He sends a message asking how close they are.
[16:18] Shadowcaller: "We have picked up on of the girls, they had left her in the car.. She's sick, but we are taking her to the hospital. We are closing in on the other cars location right now, we should be there in a few minutes."
[16:19] Aegnor: 'You know, everyone thinks I work for them. I have the resources of pretty much every intelligence network there is. You think I'd follow orders? If you want to live, I'd get out of the car right now, drop all electronics and run away. Then put me a message some day if you want some better work.'
[16:20] Shadowcaller: (Brb, I need to eat.)
[16:41] Shadowcaller: (And back.)
[16:43] Aegnor: .
[16:44] Shadowcaller: (Ah, sec.)
[16:45] Shadowcaller: (What does Marek do to hostile agents? Kill them?)
[16:50] Aegnor: Capture and interrogate if possible, I'd guess.
[16:51] Shadowcaller: (Okay.)
[16:53] Shadowcaller: "Yeah, and spend the rest of my life in some Marek prison? Don't think so…"
[16:54] Aegnor: Dan laughs. 'And what options do you have, other than trusting me?'
[16:55] Shadowcaller: "Besides, we are in the freaking waste, without any electronics, we die out here."
[16:57] Aegnor: 'Sucks to be you.'
[16:59] Shadowcaller: "If we die, she die as well. I'm not planning to have my life ending like this… Look, what if I pay you?"
[17:04] Aegnor: 'That's what you should've asked in the first place. I'm more willing to talk business than work with some hostage situation I don't even care about.'
[17:08] Shadowcaller: "If you can get us out of this and provide the information we need. I promise you that the church will pay you any amount of money. Or anything else you might want. I don't know how much information Vizek managed to get out of the captain, but I'm sure you can come with more."
[17:14] Shadowcaller: …
[17:16] Aegnor: 'How strongly are you aligned to the church?'
[17:19] Shadowcaller: "Uh…" She scratches her hair "Well, I'm part of the local agency they have here. I'm not exactly top position, but I got a few connections."
[17:20] Aegnor: 'Do you rank their faith above your live?'
[17:22] Shadowcaller: "Do I look like that kind of person to you? I'm a field agent, I don't care about their faith."
[17:24] Shadowcaller: "Only got the job since my uncle owns a upper position. But I think he didn't want me to mess up his reputation so he had me shipped over to this hole."
[17:25] Shadowcaller: *since he had me
[17:28] Aegnor: 'Well, I don't know how much you know about how Marek works and you don't have much time to learn. Just know that I can make your life a hell of a lot easier if you get captured quietly. I have the authority to take over your interrogation and if you work for me, you should get out of it with not much else than a pay raise.'
[17:30] Shadowcaller: "Work for you?…" She glances away for a moment "I don't have many other options don't I?"
[17:30] Shadowcaller: *do I
[17:31] Shadowcaller: "I accept."
[17:33] Aegnor: 'Good. Don't worry, you might not have much of a position at first but people in my organization go up with skill and loyalty and everyone is under protection.'
[17:34] Aegnor: 'As your first task, stop the car and don't do anything threatening with the gun. Nobody will get shot or tortured and I'll come by to bail you out of prison in a bit.' He sends a message to the contact that the enemy agent is to be captured alive and unharmed if she goes along with these orders.
[17:35] Shadowcaller: "Right… Bill, pull over the car. We are giving up."
[17:36] Shadowcaller: He can see that the car stops.
[17:36] Shadowcaller: (On his radar or whatever…)
[17:38] Shadowcaller: "Anything else?"
[17:39] Aegnor: 'How's the hostage?'
[17:40] Shadowcaller: "She have passed out, but she should be fine. I have already provided first aid."
[17:41] Aegnor: 'Good. Throw the gun outside and wait for a bit.'
[17:42] Shadowcaller: "Okay. See you in a bit then hopefully."
[17:42] Aegnor: 'I didn't catch your name, by the way.'
[17:43] Shadowcaller: "It's Sarah Illian. No allies."
[17:45] Aegnor: 'Nice to meet you then, Sarah, although the circumstances weren't maybe the best possible. But let's try to get over that.'
[17:46] Shadowcaller: "Yeah… Let's. I wasn't going to kill her you know?"
[17:47] Aegnor: 'I didn't think you would. One of the reasons why I would accept you.'
[17:50] Shadowcaller: "Thanks. I hope Vizek didn't do anything to your other friend?"
[17:51] Aegnor: 'She's injured but should be fine.'
[17:53] Shadowcaller: "And I thought you said it had been hit by a missile huh?"
[17:54] Aegnor: 'I lie. You sounded a bit shaken and I wanted to stop you from doing anything too hasty.'
[17:56] Shadowcaller: "Oh well, I didn't fully believe you, but your right. Might have stopped me from doing something stupid."
[17:56] Shadowcaller: (Hehe… This situation is veryweird:P)
[17:57] Aegnor: 'I believe you're strong enough to stop yourself. But it's never worth it to take unnecessary risks.'
[17:58] Aegnor: (Marek oughta arrive soon :P)
[17:58] Shadowcaller: (Yeah, speed of the plot baby.)
[17:58] Aegnor: 'They oughta be there soon. Good luck.'
[17:58] Shadowcaller: "Yeah… See you." The connection is cut.
[18:02] Shadowcaller: (And now for the real plot… >.>)
[18:07] Shadowcaller: Well, what did you like that?
[18:11] Aegnor: Interesting. ^^
[18:13] Shadowcaller: I'm going to buy some snacks… Brb
[18:55] Happy: hi
Session Close (Group Conversation 28013): Sat Mar 13 18:58:56 2010

[18:58] Happy: Dan intimidating Sarah into giving up? pretty funny
[18:58] Shadowcaller: Yeah >.>
[19:00] Happy: so where is Lucia now?
[19:00] Shadowcaller: I guess she's picked up and taken to an hospital.
[19:01] Shadowcaller: Where is Dan? Still in the apartment?
[19:03] Aegnor: yup
[19:04] Happy: well that's boring…
[19:04] Happy: dan stuck in an apartment and Lucia stuck in a hospital…
[19:05] Shadowcaller: Okay, I guess Lucia eventually wakes up.
[19:07] Happy: She looks around.
[19:09] Shadowcaller: She got her own room. The walls are white, there is a nightstand with a alarm phone standing on it, a painting, a window with a plant standing in it and a coach, chair and a small table for visitors. There is a dull pain in her foot.
[19:11] Happy: Is anyone there? If not, she'll reach for the phone.
[19:11] Shadowcaller: She still have her handheld.
[19:11] Shadowcaller: There is no one here but her.
[19:12] Shadowcaller: AKA, the phone Sarha gave her
[19:12] Shadowcaller: *sarah
[19:13] Happy: She sends a txt to Dan 'In hospital. Kara?'
[19:14] Shadowcaller: (She's in the same hospital.)
[19:14] Aegnor: 'Also there. I'll come by soon.'
[19:15] Happy: 'Thanks'
[19:15] Happy: She tries to get up and look for Kara.
[19:17] Shadowcaller: The staff explains to her that Kara is in a clean room due her lowered immunity system.
[19:17] Happy: "What condition is she in?"
[19:17] Shadowcaller: Someone had torn a hole in her suit and it needed to be cleaned and disinfected.
[19:18] Happy: "Is she injured? Sick?"
[19:18] Shadowcaller: "She have a fever." The doctor explains, "It's nothing serious thankfully, but she might need to stay here a while. We need to clean and repair her suit anyway before she can get out.
[19:20] Shadowcaller: "
[19:24] Happy: "Can I speak to her?"
[19:25] Shadowcaller: "You should be, but she's very tired so take it easy okay?"
[19:25] Happy: "I will."
[19:26] Aegnor: (what the hell is eating my internet?)
[19:27] Aegnor: Dan heads to wherever they took Sarah.
[19:29] Shadowcaller: Okay… Two conversations at once… So Lucia enters the clean room, she have to wear plastic bags over her shoes. There is a plastic veil hanging around kara's bed. Lucia notice how she opens her eyes when she enters. "Lucia…?" She says weakly.
[19:30] Aegnor: brb
[19:30] Happy: "Are you hurt? I was so afraid for you…"
[19:30] Shadowcaller: Around the same time, Dan is heading to the interrogate room where they took Sarah and Bill ( the driver).
[19:30] Shadowcaller: "Head hurts…"
[19:31] Happy: "Did they do anything to you?"
[19:32] Shadowcaller: "They made a hole in my suit and threatened me…" She shivers.
[19:33] Shadowcaller: "Bastards." She utters, Kara looks quite bleak right now.
[19:37] Happy: "You're going to be okay… Dan… I don't know what he did, but he'll make them pay."
[19:37] Shadowcaller: She looks away "They felt me up…"
[19:38] Happy: "Oh… oh Kara…"
[19:38] Shadowcaller: She shivers again.
[19:39] Happy: (you're mean to your characters v.v )
[19:39] Shadowcaller: (>.>)
[19:41] Shadowcaller: "I feel dirty."
[19:42] Happy: "They'll pay for this." she says again.
[19:42] Shadowcaller: Kara closes her eyes "They will."
[19:43] Shadowcaller: "Ca-can you ask them for a clean bath or something like that?"
[19:43] Shadowcaller: "A shower maybe."
[19:44] Happy: "Yes, of course." She does that.
[19:45] Aegnor: b
[19:46] Shadowcaller: "We will see what we can do…" The doctor replies, "We have limited resources, but we do what we can. How is your foot?"
[19:46] Shadowcaller: "You appears to be able to walk on it."
[19:49] Aegnor: Meanwhile Dan heads to said place
[19:49] Shadowcaller: Yeah, sec…
[19:51] Shadowcaller: Valerin, and some other agents are waiting for them him the headquarters. "Dan? What are you doing here?"
[19:51] Happy: (How is it?)
[19:51] Shadowcaller: (Dull pain.)
[19:52] Happy: "Dull pain. I didn't even think about it… I had to see Kara."
[19:53] Shadowcaller: "Of course, we aren't exactly used to these kind of events around here. I'm glad to see you both okay."
[19:54] Aegnor: 'I decided to come check on the prisoners.
[19:56] Shadowcaller: "We haven't started the interrogation yet." Valerin states, "Have you slept yet? Your getting up early tomorrow."
[19:57] Aegnor: 'Yeah, but since the ones who were holding Lucia are my own prisoners, I decided to handle their interrogation myself. At least at first.'
[19:59] Shadowcaller: He glances at the other men "You have experience?"
[19:59] Aegnor: 'Enough.'
[20:00] Shadowcaller: "Okay, do you want someone with you?"
[20:01] Aegnor: 'Not at first. I'll try the 'easy way' first. Do you have any specific things you want to know of them?'
[20:03] Shadowcaller: "Ask if they got some sources inside our organization, they knew a bit too much about where you arrived and your crew for my taste. Ask them about Vizek as well, and their plans to investigate the cult." He leans back in the chair.
[20:05] Aegnor: 'All right.'
[20:06] Shadowcaller: "They are in separated rooms. You want to pull them together? Or one at the time?"
[20:07] Aegnor: 'One at a time is better. I'll talk with the driver first, prefarably in a comfortable room.'
[20:07] Shadowcaller: In the hospital they are eventually able to get Kara a bath after a few hours.
[20:07] Shadowcaller: "Okay, room 1 it is then, step right in."
[20:09] Aegnor: He does so.
[20:09] Shadowcaller: Bill looks up at Dan as he walks in "Hey."
[20:09] Aegnor: 'Hi. How's things?'
[20:09] Shadowcaller: "Okay, consider all things." He looks around the room. "So… I'm ready to spill my guts here."
[20:10] Happy: Lucia will try to get herself sanitized so she can sit with Kara.
[20:12] Aegnor: 'I'm here to listen.'
[20:12] Shadowcaller: Kara doesn't want anyone to be in the room while she is bathing, but afterwards…
[20:13] Shadowcaller: She looks to be a bit better, but she both sounds and looks tired.
[20:14] Shadowcaller: "And so is everyone else in this building." Bill says with a smile.
[20:15] Shadowcaller: "Ain't going back to the church, so what do you like to know?"
[20:16] Shadowcaller: Kara turns around in her bed "What did they do to you?"
[20:17] Aegnor: 'Well, first of all, who are you?'
[20:17] Happy: "Shot me in the foot. They kept asking me questions about Dan, so I played idiot celebrity."
[20:21] Shadowcaller: "Bill Peterson, was only in the church a few months before I ended up here. Originally I'm a taxi driver, from Phrygian."
[20:21] Aegnor: (about MTG: If I get scried by someone, does he get told 'Murska is [target's role] or [target] is [target's role]'?)
[20:22] Aegnor: He looks at his eyes with a steady gaze. 'Why are you here?'
[20:23] Shadowcaller: (I never got your role Murska <.<) Kara's eyes goes to Lucia's foot "..does it hurt?"
[20:23] Aegnor: (Well, I can vortex actions between me and someone)
[20:25] Shadowcaller: "Got recruited, I'm cruising around materials and people all the time. Eventually ended up here after my engine broke."
[20:26] Shadowcaller: "Haven't repaired it yet, cheap skveets…"
[20:26] Happy: "Yeah, but I think they've numbed it or something. It doesn't hurt as much as it ought to."
[20:28] Aegnor: 'Who else do you know?'
[20:28] Shadowcaller: Kara pauses and looks up at the celing "…I told them about Isaac."
[20:30] Shadowcaller: "Agents you mean? Well, there is a whole number of them here. But I'm technically not part of the 'team' down here like Sarah is so they kept me at distance most of the time. They just call me from time to time to make small delivery missions… And this."
[20:31] Happy: Lucia is silent for a moment. Then she forces a smile. "It's okay. I'm sure Isaac can handle them."
[20:31] Aegnor: 'How many? Do you have any contact lines? Anything else you can think of?'
[20:32] Shadowcaller: (Contact lines? Phone numbers?9
[20:32] Aegnor: (any way to contact them)
[20:33] Shadowcaller: "I'm so sorry." Kara offers.
[20:35] Happy: "It's okay. Really. They didn't even start asking me about him until the end. Mostly they asked stuff about Dan." She looks at Kara. "Did you tell them anything about him?"
[20:36] Shadowcaller: "Oh, I would guess there is about four of them in every major city. I have seen at least ten of them in person, excluding Sarah."
[20:37] Aegnor: 'We'll want descriptions later, of course. What were you two told of your mission this time?'
[20:38] Shadowcaller: Kara shakes her head "I said I didn't know much about him. And I don't really, I told them he mostly lied to me… I was so afraid."
[20:39] Shadowcaller: "We were told that Vizek led this operation, this new pet bounty hunter they had hired."
[20:40] Shadowcaller: "He debriefed us about the whole plan. The kidnapping wasn't in it thought."
[20:40] Happy: Lucia has been disinfected and put in sterile clothes, right? If so, she hugs Kara
[20:41] Aegnor: 'Where were you headed?'
[20:41] Happy: (did you ever get a space avatar, SC?)
[20:41] Happy: (if not, you should bump your request)
[20:42] Shadowcaller: (Yeah >.>) Kara hugs back, a few tears falling from her eyes "…sorry, I'm *sniff* bit sensitive."
[20:42] Shadowcaller: (And yes, I should.)
[20:42] Happy: "It's okay… you're safe now…"
[20:43] Shadowcaller: "No where, we were just supposed to drive around until we got what we wanted."
[20:44] Aegnor: 'And then what?'
[20:44] Shadowcaller: "Let them off in the closest city."
[20:44] Shadowcaller: "Or village."
[20:45] Shadowcaller: Kara tries to wipe away her tears "I know…"
[20:46] Aegnor: 'What do you know about Vizek?'
[20:47] Happy: "You probably want to go back to Umbra and never leave again."
[20:49] Shadowcaller: "Never saw the mans face, he wore some kind of mechanical suit every time I saw him. The quiet brooding type, the type that kills their own grandmother for a few credits."
[20:51] Aegnor: 'What do you know about 'Dan'?'
[20:52] Shadowcaller: Kara sniffs again "I- no, I can't turn back… Then they would win."
[20:53] Shadowcaller: Bill raises an eyebrow "'Dan' eh? Well, nothing really. Sarah had all the files about you. I only knew the name."
[20:54] Aegnor: 'Hm.' He frowns a bit. 'I hate changing names.'
[20:54] Aegnor: He sighs. 'Oh well.'
[20:55] Aegnor: 'Do you know anything about the Church's plans or something else we'd want to know?'
[20:57] Shadowcaller: "Nothing in particular, most of their plans seem to involve the cult. Thought I did transport that package of explosives… Not sure what they were doing with those. It's the only thing that stands out thought."
[20:58] Aegnor: 'Where did you bring it and where from?'
[20:59] Shadowcaller: "Can I get a piece of paper?" Bill asks.
[21:00] Aegnor: 'Sure.' Dan has someone bring him one. And a pen.
[21:00] Shadowcaller: He writes down some addreses "There."
[21:01] Aegnor: 'When was this?
[21:01] Shadowcaller: "A few days ago."
[21:01] Happy: "That's the spirit," Lucia says, trying to sound encouraging.
[21:02] Aegnor: 'All right. Anything else you can think of?'
[21:03] Shadowcaller: Bill relaxes back in his chair "Not on the top of my head, I wrote down a few names I can remember as well if they would be of use."
[21:04] Aegnor: 'Thanks. Then, if the obligatory stuff is out of the way… Tell me a bit about yourself.'
[21:04] Shadowcaller: Bill seems a bit surprised "Huh? What kind of question is that?"
[21:05] Aegnor: 'Well, we have to figure out what to do now, don't we?'
[21:05] Shadowcaller: "I guess… Didn't get much chance to talk with Sarah really so I'm not sure exactly what this will consist of."
[21:06] Shadowcaller: *not exactly sure what
[21:07] Aegnor: 'You said you're from Phrygian? A native?'
[21:07] Shadowcaller: "Yep, lived there most of my life."
[21:07] Aegnor: 'Any family?'
[21:09] Shadowcaller: "A few, leaved them all behind thought. Only one who ever did, none of them are getting out of that black hole."
[21:11] Aegnor: 'How did you get recruited?'
[21:14] Shadowcaller: "One day a man jumped into the cab, telling me he was being followed and wanted me to drive him to some safe house, or I assume it was one."
[21:14] Shadowcaller: "Got in a car chase, not the first time mind you."
[21:15] Shadowcaller: "I never learned his name, but he paid me a great deal and offered me to join." He shrugs "Wasn't a bad deal."
[21:16] Aegnor: 'What do you want to do with your life?'
[21:18] Shadowcaller: "A lot of stuff, none of them are going to happened thought. But get rich or die trying right? Most people on Phrygian live by those words."
[21:20] Aegnor: 'Hm. Well, I suppose one choice would be getting lifted to some UEC planet far away from any of the Church. We could link you some job and maybe ask for a favour once in awhile.'
[21:22] Aegnor: 'Or we could arrange for you to move to Marek space, which is probably the best place in the galaxy for the philosophy of 'get rich or die trying'.'
[21:22] Shadowcaller: "How's Marek space Exactly?"
[21:24] Shadowcaller: (Right, going to reply to Lucia now. Was surprised with interest of NPC there. <.<) "I'm not in trouble for revealing those things right?" Kara asks a bit worried. "I remember Isaac being quite worried about the church finding out about Dima."
[21:24] Aegnor: 'Pretty free, but there's a lot of different groups so the politics are a bit of a tangle. You can either stay away from those or maybe you'd wish to be employed by my House.'
[21:24] Aegnor: (@)
[21:25] Happy: "He couldn't have expected it to stay a secret, Kara."
[21:26] Happy: "I think he just wanted to keep it quiet until the quarantine was in place."
[21:26] Shadowcaller: "Your 'house'? Huh… Well, I think I like to do some research before I jump into anything. But I'm not turning it away, consider it an agreement unless I change my mind."
[21:28] Aegnor: 'The offer's there for now. Lou's group is one of the powerful ones. However, not everyone here is from there so you'd best make up your mind pretty fast.'
[21:29] Shadowcaller: Kara nods slowly, wiping away tears that are no longer there. "Okay… Maybe you should call him? You can do that right?"
[21:30] Shadowcaller: "Figured so, so screw the research. If you don't take chance, you never win."
[21:32] Aegnor: He grins. 'Good attitude. Anyway, I'm needed at a hospital soon so I'll talk to you about the details later.'
[21:32] Happy: "Not from here."
[21:32] Shadowcaller: *chances
[21:33] Shadowcaller: "Checking the girls huh? Well, say hi from me. And tell them I'm sorry."
[21:34] Shadowcaller: Kara looks up at Lucia "…so how was he? I mean, before all this…"
[21:34] Aegnor: 'All right.' He stands up. 'I guess we're done here now.'
[21:35] Shadowcaller: "I guess we are."
[21:37] Happy: Lucia opens her mouth to speak, then closes it again. "I… I can't. It's still too soon."
[21:37] Shadowcaller: Kara looks down "Sorry… I didn't realize…"
[21:38] Shadowcaller: So what does Dan do?
[21:41] Happy: "It's okay. It's just… we were never going to get married or anything. But he was more than just a fling."
[21:41] Aegnor: Dan heads out, gives the paper to the others and asks to see Sarah next.
[21:42] Aegnor: (Of course telling everything he learned first)
[21:42] Shadowcaller: "You didn't want to get married?"
[21:45] Shadowcaller: Sarah is waiting for him, she is looking rather impatient "What took you so long…?"
[21:45] Aegnor: 'I have other things to take care of aswell, such as two wounded friends.'
[21:46] Shadowcaller: "Right… Well, go on with it then. I like to get out of here as fast as possible."
[21:46] Happy: "He had his career. I had mine. We saw each other whenever we could. I had other men. I know he had other women."
[21:47] Shadowcaller: Kara's eyes goes wide "Oh…"
[21:48] Aegnor: 'Yeah. The obligatory stuff. Who are you? Where are you from?'
[21:50] Shadowcaller: Sarah sigh "It's going to be one of /those/ interrogations? Can't you just check my files? I had them on my computer."
[21:51] Aegnor: 'Come on, it's not such a big deal. Just answer a bunch of questions.'
[21:53] Shadowcaller: Kara looks a bit awkward "That's… Well, the outside is different. I should know that by now."
[21:55] Happy: "People I know think arranged marriages are shocking and strange."
[21:55] Shadowcaller: Sarah puts her hands together "Okay… Where should I start? You want the short or the long story?"
[21:55] Shadowcaller: "Or maybe the really short story?"
[21:57] Aegnor: 'Go with as long as you have the patience for.'
[21:57] Shadowcaller: "I can imagine they do… I haven't seen it practiced anywhere else then back home." Kara replies.
[21:58] Shadowcaller: She smiles "The really short version then."
[21:59] Aegnor: He leans back and listens.
[22:04] Shadowcaller: "Grew up at Artis, went to college, university and all that crap, but I still didn't find a blasted job. No clue what I was going to do with my life. Was going to be an police officer, but I failed some tests due laziness so I managed to burn that bridge as well."
[22:06] Shadowcaller: "I was pretty desperate, and the damn economy was shity so there wasn't any jobs left. Not any jobs I wanted at least, and I wasn't going to be some god-damn cleaner."
[22:08] Shadowcaller: "So after a while, I find out about my uncle, he's a rich guy. Well rich/er/ then my parents in any case. I hadn't done any practical work until that time so I had no connections whatsoever. So he was my last chance for a good job."
[22:10] Shadowcaller: "Had like, met him at a few family meetings. He send a few cards to me at my birthdays and so on… We weren't close exactly."
[22:10] Shadowcaller: "But I got a job, better then I should have gotten really…"
[22:10] Shadowcaller: "I screwed it up of course, I always do."
[22:11] Shadowcaller: Sarah throws up her hands in the air "And here I am. Still screwing things up. Big fucking failure."
[22:12] Happy: (geez… and she thought Lucia was self-absorbed :P )
[22:13] Shadowcaller: (Hehe.)
[22:14] Happy: (somehow I don't think Marek cares about her self-esteem)
[22:14] Aegnor: 'Why?'
[22:17] Shadowcaller: "Why? After I had failed a intelligence gathering job my uncle realized that I wasn't exactly made for the job. It wasn't my fault really, I lacked experience for it. But I was so glad I had a job I wanted so I didn't mention that to him."
[22:17] Shadowcaller: "He decided to send me off here, to this hole."
[22:18] Shadowcaller: "So I wouldn't cause any more trouble for him I guess."
[22:19] Aegnor: 'And how'd you end up recruited?'
[22:19] Shadowcaller: "Oh, my Uncle was in the church."
[22:19] Shadowcaller: "The job was for the church."
[22:19] Aegnor: 'Right.'
[22:20] Shadowcaller: *is in the church
[22:20] Aegnor: 'Do you have contacts on this planet?'
[22:20] Aegnor: 'Or others, for that matter.'
[22:22] Happy: brb
[22:22] Shadowcaller: "I know a few people, my family for example… And my uncle. But I'm /not/ talking to my parents. If they knew what failure I am…"
[22:23] Shadowcaller: She sigh "And I know a number of church agents on the planet plus I have meet a bunch of them on Artis."
[22:25] Aegnor: 'What exactly do you know of your most recent mission?'
[22:27] Shadowcaller: "Yeah… We were tasked to help Vizek to extract information from you."
[22:27] Shadowcaller: "The church wanted to know what was happening on Dima."
[22:29] Aegnor: 'What do you know of Dan?'
[22:38] Shadowcaller: "Let's see… 'Dan' was born at a core world near Eden."
[22:41] Shadowcaller: "He's of mid-rank in UEC, a lot of manuverbility, family dead, raised by his uncle and then ended up joining the army into intelligence." She smiles, "Not entirely unlike me."
[22:43] Aegnor: He smiles back. 'And pretty much all lies.'
[22:44] Shadowcaller: "Hey, I was talking about the character."
[22:45] Aegnor: 'Mhm.'
[22:45] Aegnor: 'What did you find out about Dima?'
[22:47] Shadowcaller: "They know something strange is going on there as the gate is closed and all, we have gotten a few reports before it closed completely thought. Thats how we know the ship didn't blow up."
[22:49] Happy: "How did they get you? Threatened to kill you if you didn't come with them?"
[22:50] Shadowcaller: "Pretty much… This guy with some mechanical suit walks up to me…"
[22:50] Shadowcaller: "Had a gun pressed on me before I could move."
[22:51] Shadowcaller: Sarah continues "Or were you asked what we learned from you?"
[22:51] Shadowcaller: *asking
[22:52] Happy: "They called me on my handheld. Said they had a gun on me."
[22:52] Aegnor: 'Both.'
[22:53] Shadowcaller: "You were the lucky one then…" Kara glances away.
[22:53] Shadowcaller: "Not that I should compare."
[22:54] Happy: "I was." She hugs Kara again. "The woman who had me didn't really want to hurt me. Her threats never felt serious."
[22:54] Shadowcaller: (They didn't?:P)
[22:55] Shadowcaller: "Well, I have no idea. Most of the information came from the captain. Neither you or the singer gave away much information…"
[22:55] Shadowcaller: "It wasn't my type of mission."
[22:56] Aegnor: 'Poor girls.' Dan shakes his head. 'A sure sign of things going wrong when someone's constantly stuck in a hospital.'
[22:57] Shadowcaller: "If they are traveling around with you, I'm not terribly surprised."
[22:58] Aegnor: 'Guess that's a point. I was going to separate from them here though… Oh well. How did you know about Dan's connection to Marek?'
[22:58] Shadowcaller: Kara hugs back again "I'm glad you came thought, I was in my own miserable world before that… It was still so real…"
[22:59] Aegnor: (We shot Wolfy! Oo)
[23:00] Happy: (No, she kept reassuring her that she wouldn't hurt her and trying to calm her down)
[23:00] Happy: "It wasn't as scary for me. I knew Dan was trying to find us by then."
[23:00] Aegnor: (Not to mention showing her doubts about the mission on the phone in front of the hostage)
[23:01] Happy: "You didn't have any way to know that."
[23:02] Shadowcaller: "One of our spy satellites managed to extract a heavily decrypted file that was being sent to you. And no, I don't know much about that, top secret."
[23:02] Shadowcaller: (Yeah, that was the file that was lost >.>)
[23:05] Aegnor: 'Mm. Please write down everything about the other agents you know, would you?' He passes over some paper and a pen.
[23:05] Shadowcaller: "I guess… But it still feels like I have betrayed you… At least now afterwards."
[23:06] Shadowcaller: (That was Kara.)
[23:07] Happy: "You didn't. Not at all."
[23:07] Shadowcaller: "Sure." Sarah replies "First failure, now betrayer. Ah, my life keep making dives." She says as she start to write down names.
[23:08] Happy: (yeah, we all feel /so/ sorry for you :p )
[23:10] Aegnor: 'When low enough, the only way is up. Besides, you shouldn't be mixed up in it if you're not willing to accept their methods. Kidnapping and torturing innocents to gain access to WMDs and such.'
[23:12] Shadowcaller: Kara let's go of Lucia, managing to smile a bit "Thanks for saying that."
[23:12] Shadowcaller: (Not the most likeable character huh?)
[23:14] Shadowcaller: "Again." Sarah says, "Not enough field experience, which is ironic when you are a field agent."
[23:15] Aegnor: 'Who do you have leaking information in the Marek organization of this planet?'
[23:15] Shadowcaller: "And I was raised on Artis, not Phrygian like Bill."
[23:15] Shadowcaller: (That was supposed to be after her first statement.)
[23:15] Aegnor: mmmhkay
[23:16] Shadowcaller: "So I have some moral-ic backbone…"
[23:17] Aegnor: (will be slow, starcraft)
[23:17] Shadowcaller: "You think I know that? If someone have contacts without your organization, I'm not in contact with them."
[23:20] Happy: "Don't worry about Isaac. He can take care of himself. I was mostly worried about leaking something that could hurt Dan. Or saying something that would make them think you were lying to them."

[23:26] Shadowcaller: Kara sigh "I never really cared about Dan's secret games…"
[23:27] Happy: "Whatever he does, whoever he works for, he's gotten us out of trouble twice now."
[23:29] Shadowcaller: "True, but this time we got in trouble indirectly because of him…. Not that I blame him or anything. I'm… I don't even think I can express how glad I am."
[23:32] Happy: "Too bad Trevenar wasn't here. He'd have broken the guy's hand before he could point a gun at you."
[23:33] Aegnor: Aegnor sanoo:
'All right. Any idea about the investigations you have going on at the cult of joining?'
[23:36] Shadowcaller: "Funny that the first time we really need a body guard, he's not here…"
[23:36] Happy: "We needed him on Umbra, remember?"
[23:37] Happy: "And on <ice world>"
[23:37] Shadowcaller: "The cult… Creepy stuff if you ask me. They are talking how everyone is a part of it, even off worlders, like it was something natural."
[23:38] Shadowcaller: Kara manages to shrug, thought weakly "Maybe… But it felt like had more need of him here."
[23:39] Happy: (maggy is poking you, SC)
[23:49] Shadowcaller: …
[23:50] Happy: "I don't think I let you wander on planets alone, anyway."
[23:52] Shadowcaller: "I can take care of myself for most part…"
[23:52] Shadowcaller: "Been doing that most of my life."
[23:53] Happy: ""Me too. But I still die if I get shot."
[23:54] Shadowcaller: Kara blinks "And I die if my suit is torn."
[23:55] Happy: "So…" *shrugs* "Everyone's vulnerable."
[23:56] Aegnor: 'What all do you know of Vizek?'
[23:56] Shadowcaller: "Yeah… Where is Dan by the way? I figured he would be here."
[23:58] Shadowcaller: "Vizek? Oh, well from what I know, he have replaced a lot of his body with electronics. Apparently, he's from some culture where that's is quite accepted."
[23:59] Shadowcaller: "The church just hired him, but he's got a long list of Sucesful missions… Unlike me you know?"
[00:00] Happy: "He said he would be here soon."
[00:00] Shadowcaller: "Ironically, he hate 'part' humans, or 'freaks' as he calls them." She shakes her head "No idea what kind of logic he's using for that."
[00:01] Shadowcaller: Kara looks grim for a moment "I guess I have to thank him again. I owe him big time now."
[00:03] Happy: "Heh… like you said, it's his trouble we got caught up in this time. He should be grovelling and begging your forgiveness." *smiling*
[00:04] Shadowcaller: Kara smiles back "Somehow, I doubt he will see it the same way."
[00:10] Aegnor: 'Anything else you got to tell?'
[00:11] Shadowcaller: "Hmm… Have they mentioned there is literality no crime at all at the planet?"
[00:11] Shadowcaller: "Or at least kept to a minimum."
[00:11] Shadowcaller: "It have to do with the cult."
[00:12] Aegnor: 'How so?'
[00:13] Shadowcaller: "There are no heretics in the cult, and all the laws here goes by the religion."
[00:14] Aegnor: 'Well yeah. It doesn't tell me much about the underlying reasons.'
[00:15] Shadowcaller: "That's what both our organizations want to find out about."
[00:17] Shadowcaller: "There are theories of course, some of them related to those parasites, but nothing conclusive have come up yet."
[00:22] Aegnor: 'Yeah. Oh well, I think that's about the obligatory things.'
[00:23] Shadowcaller: "You have any theories yet?"
[00:23] Aegnor: 'Me? I arrived today.' He smiles.
[00:24] Shadowcaller: "I know, but they get you here for a reason didn't they?"
[00:24] Shadowcaller: *got
[00:25] Aegnor: 'Maybe so, but I haven't had much time to do anything yet. Thanks to certain… distractions.'
[00:25] Shadowcaller: "…indeed."
[00:26] Shadowcaller: "Maybe you should go back to work then eh? I don't like to distract you any more…"
[00:26] Aegnor: 'I was just joking. And we still haven't talked about the important stuff.'
[00:27] Shadowcaller: "Talk then. I'm all ears."
[00:27] Aegnor: 'It's supposed to be a conversation.'
[00:27] Aegnor: 'To start off, what do you want?'
[00:28] Shadowcaller: "What I want…? A job that fits me. Something I won't utterly fail at."
[00:29] Aegnor: 'And what do you think that'd be?'
[00:30] Shadowcaller: "If I had known that, I wouldn't be here would I?"
[00:30] Aegnor: 'Well, what do you like to do?
[00:31] Shadowcaller: Sarah looks thoughtful for a while "They always asked me this stuff at the 'my future' lessons, a whole class about this stuff."
[00:32] Shadowcaller: "Learned to write resumes and stuff there, but they still didn't give me a clue about what I wanted to be."
[00:32] Aegnor: 'Well yeah. It's not like I've found out that about myself yet.'
[00:33] Happy: (get her a job whining for a living :P )
[00:36] Shadowcaller: "I don't really know… I had some experience with this job. I can handle a gun reasonably, I have had a lot of physical training, patited for a while…"
[00:37] Aegnor: 'Are you motivated for the job? Seriously?'
[00:37] Shadowcaller: "Err… I just want to take a job I can be proud of."
[00:38] Aegnor: 'Well then it certainly isn't this.' He chuckles.
[00:39] Shadowcaller: "It's something, Better then being a cleaner at least."
[00:39] Shadowcaller: "Well paid for one."
[00:40] Aegnor: 'Nothing wrong with cleaners. Anyway, if you have no idea about your interests, I suggest getting some menial job that keeps you alive and trying out new things as a hobby 'till you find something you want to pursue.'
[00:41] Shadowcaller: Sarah frowns "I'm good with information…"
[00:41] Shadowcaller: "This type of job become a part of your life, you can't just quit."
[00:42] Aegnor: 'We can help you to, if you want. Or you can just be an informant while doing something else.'
[00:43] Shadowcaller: "…informant sounds good. As long I don't get some trash job while doing it."
[00:45] Aegnor: 'Well, most non-trash jobs require training and motivation. We're not going to /give/ you a job.'
[00:46] Shadowcaller: "I have training! Spent 4 years of my life on the university, that must be something."
[00:48] Shadowcaller: "I studied society."
[00:51] Shadowcaller: *at the university
[00:53] Aegnor: 'Look, I'm not a job councilor nor am I even qualified to give advice based on my own lifestyle. The offer is thus: We haul you to some planet where there won't be danger from the church, give you a contact and up to you to get yourself a life.'
[00:55] Shadowcaller: "Ugh…" Sarah covers her eyes with her hand "Fine, but what planet?"
[00:56] Aegnor: 'Don't know yet. Your wishes'll be taken into account if possible, of course.'
[00:59] Shadowcaller: "Not Phrygian at least. Some richer planet if possible. Naru, Exalir…"
[01:05] Aegnor: 'Can't say Phrygian is safe from the church. Anyway, I'll be back for the details later. I'm kind of late from the hospital.'
[01:05] Shadowcaller: Sarah nods "See you later then… Maybe."
[01:10] Aegnor: 'Hope so.'
[01:10] Aegnor: He stands and walks out
[01:10] Aegnor: hands over all information
[01:10] Aegnor: and heads to the hospital
[01:10] Shadowcaller: He does.
[01:11] Shadowcaller: He will eventually be informed where Kara and Lucia is and meet them up there I guess.
[01:13] Aegnor: He enters the room, looking at the floor.
[01:13] Aegnor: 'Hey.' /quiet
[01:13] Happy: Lucia runs and hugs him.
[01:14] Aegnor: He seems a bit surprised at this. 'Oof. You all right?'
[01:14] Shadowcaller: Kara have fallen into a restful state of being while they waited, but opens her eyes after he walks in. "Hi Dan…" She says weakly.
[01:14] Aegnor: (I'd assume it's less of a run and more of a limp :P)
[01:15] Happy: (oh right…)
[01:15] Happy: She starts to run, realizes it hurts, and goes "Ow, ow ow"
[01:15] Happy: Sits back down and reaches her hand out to him instead.
[01:16] Aegnor: He walks closer to them both. 'How badly are you two hurt?'
[01:16] Shadowcaller: "Caught a fever… Could have been worse."
[01:18] Aegnor: 'Allow me to say… I'm really sorry about this. Just after I got from saying that I'll try to not mix you into anything.'
[01:20] Shadowcaller: Kara blinks, slowly, only opening them up halfway "'s okay Dan, you got us out right…?"
[01:21] Aegnor: 'But you were both hurt.'
[01:22] Happy: "Are you okay, Dan?"
[01:22] Shadowcaller: Kara shivers sligthly "…yeah, but it's okay…"
[01:23] Aegnor: 'Me? What would happen to me, sitting in a safe apartment listening to you being tortured.'
[01:28] Shadowcaller: (@)
[01:28] Happy: "Considering they were only after us to get to you… "
[01:29] Happy: "They… well, Kara had it worse off than I did. I hope whatever happens to those bastards is both brutal and fatal." she says in a dark voice.
[01:30] Shadowcaller: Kara dosen't say anything.
[01:32] Shadowcaller: She is looking away to some empty corner of the room.
[01:36] Aegnor: Dan sighs. 'It's all my fault. They had intercepted the message which told me to come here.'
[01:37] Happy: "Did they catch the ones who had Kara?"
[01:40] Aegnor: (did they?)
[01:40] Shadowcaller: (Nope.)
[01:40] Aegnor: 'No.'
[01:42] Happy: Lucia curses quietly.
[01:43] Shadowcaller: Kara is tugging the sheet close to her body, curling up a bit. "…I'm alive. Could have been worse."
[01:45] Aegnor: Dan steps over to her. '…sorry.'
[01:45] Shadowcaller: "I'm not blaming you Dan… I'm not."
[01:45] Happy: "You better not get too close. You haven't been sterilized."
[01:46] Aegnor: 'True.' He steps back again. 'You should probably rest.'
[01:47] Shadowcaller: "I should… How long will you be here? On the planet I mean?"
[01:48] Happy: "Yeah. Get some sleep hon. I'm just going to go eat, and I'll be back in a few minutes, okay?"
[01:48] Shadowcaller: Kara nods "Okay."
[01:51] Aegnor: 'I don't know.'
[01:52] Shadowcaller: "Okay… Night then Dan."
[01:52] Happy: Lucia follows Dan out. "They groped her," she says quietly to Dan when they're out of the room.
[01:54] Aegnor: He doesn't say anything or look at her.
[01:56] Happy: "Dan… it's not your fault."
[01:58] Aegnor: 'I know.' He says flatly.
[02:07] Shadowcaller: (@)
[02:08] Happy: She doesn't say anything. Just hugs him.
[02:09] Aegnor: After a moment, he hugs her back, then separates, looking at her. 'Don't worry and try to heal quickly. I should go to sleep, they'll need me again in the morning.'
[02:10] Happy: "Okay. Be careful. I don't want those bastards to win."
[02:13] Shadowcaller: Should we end there?
[02:14] Aegnor: yes
[02:14] Aegnor: they do need me again in the morning
[02:14] Aegnor: namely, in five hours
[02:14] Shadowcaller: Oh o.O
[02:14] Shadowcaller: Night then
[02:14] Aegnor: night
[02:14] Aegnor: *hugs*
[02:14] Shadowcaller: Night
[02:14] *** Aegnor has left the conversation.
[02:15] Shadowcaller: What is Lucia going to do now? Kara is most likely going to stay in bed for a few days.
[02:16] Happy: dunno. She can't really do much to help Dan, so she'd probably just stay near Kara to keep her safe
[02:18] Shadowcaller: Hmm… From a OOC point of view…
[02:18] Shadowcaller: I just have things planned for Dan's investigation.
[02:19] Happy: should give him a chance to find Viziak (or whatever the guy's name is who tortured Kara)
[02:20] Shadowcaller: I had planned him as a recurring villain actually.
[02:20] Happy: aww
[02:21] Shadowcaller: But we will see… Must come up with things for Lucia as well
[02:22] Shadowcaller: I need to eat and then go to bed now
[02:23] Shadowcaller: brb
[02:23] Shadowcaller: Save this
[02:24] Happy: ok
