She took his hands in hers to keep them from fidgeting. "Hey, whatever it is, you can tell me," she said softly, trying to make eye contact. "We can handle it together. I seem to recall we make a pretty good team," she added with just a hint of a smile.

Ardiente allows the eye contact when she takes his hands. There's a ghost of a smile to match Raelle's at her team comment, Ardiente's heart fluttering slightly despite the tight grip of the mood on said heart. "It's... well. There's some sort of... problem, that Aunt Aananda and Arthur and Melody are working... apparently the universe is going to end if they can't fix it. I kinda thought they were playing a prank at first."

"They're... building something to try to fix it, and I thought... well, you are really good at building things, maybe you could help." Ardiente takes a deep breath and looks away for a moment, still ashen-faced. "There's more too, but we should probably go to the lab."

[blink, blink]

She stared at him for a moment, going pale as the news went from bad to worse. She was worried about what was so bad he wasn't telling her, but more concerned about the impending end of the world.
"Okay, come one," she said, taking his hand and heading towards the lab. "Professor Sunwake does not joke about the end of the world. Occasionally she complains that we have an apocalypse at least once a week, but that's not really a joke. More of an annoyed observation."
"And if saving the world depends on Arthur doing math correctly then we're all doomed."

Yes, distant relative I don't know, getting in my personal space and telling me tearfully how much I remind you of my dead mother is totally appropriate behavior at my grandfather's funeral and doesn't make me uncomfortable at all. </sarcasm>. :(

You know, in one of the earliest episodes of TNG, they introduced something similar to the arrows onboard the Enterprise. They would led you to whoever you wanted.

Of course, I don't think they ever use that functionality again, since the computer can just tell you exactly where someone is.

How much are you gonna laugh if I tell you that's where the idea for the arrows came from? Cause Ummm....that's exactly where that idea was borrowed from....

Just because they're murder-hoboes doesn't mean they can't care. They could be philosophers for all we know. I mean, they have a lot of time to think about stuff after they've suffocated one passenger and before they pick up the next. Maybe they have non-murdery hobbies too.

To put it bluntly, Jacob looks like he's been hit in the face with a cricket bat. No bruises or anything, but that general look you get when something just completely blindsides you.

While the perky little firebird girl is rambling, Jacob occasionally attempts to interject, but her cascade of words drowns out all of the "ah-"s and "um-"s.

When her little waterfall of words is finally over, Jacob expresses his entire feelings on the matter with one word: "Um..."

"It's okay. I can help you go ask if you feel nervous about it," she said with a cheerful smile. She seems oblivious to the idea that he could possibly be feeling overwhelmed by her. After all, she was only seven and so small for her age that she looked like a kindergartener. A small one. She couldn't possibly be intimidating.

Lol. Well, I appreciate the snow. :)

Honestly, I came to video games late and am generally strapped for time, so I don't want to waste it on something that isn't fun. I dislike overly powerful NPCs for the same reason Elminster sucks. It's not fun having an NPC outshine you when you're supposed to be playing the hero.

That seems like a design flaw that would become very irksome to me. If I'm going to play a character of a certain class, I don't want to be shown up by an NPC recruit. Granted nine times out of ten I probably wouldn't recruit someone of the same class as my PC (unless I just really really liked the character) because it would be an unnecessary duplication of abilities in the party, but if the game doesn't give you the option to recruit or not recruit but just adds people to your party based on the storyline I can see how that might not be an option.

this was second ed. Ability duplication was necessary to survive.

Moreover, the idea you are putting forthe here seems to be a relatively recent invention. It could all boil down to the fact that you are younger than me and have a different perspective as a result.

I think it's playstyle rather than age because you're younger than I am and I agree with Orthos here. :)

Ok, so this is the concept in a nutshell:

Won't happen for awhile mind, as the Dragon Empire isn't full on direct threat just yet

As things get crazier and nuttier with more and more threats, be they extra-dimensional or the Empire itself, Jimminy realizes mechsuits won't be enough.

Rounding up a group of the smartest, most tech oriented characters in Avalon, he presents them with his new idea:

A group of awakened constructs, who have a trio of forms; humanoid, support and battle. When a serious crisis arises, and they can't handle it on their own, they are able to merge their forms into a single, more badass creature.

Yes, people, I have come up with a way to make Combiner Transformers!!

Anybody want in on this insanity? Provided it gets approved? LOL

No. Nuh-uh. No Transformers. Not gonna happen. No Transformers, might consider Voltron, would consider Mechagodzilla if it weren't so dang inefficient compared to normal gundam designs, and would consider any alternate mecha designs inspired by Pacific Rim, no Power Rangers style mechs because they make Mechagodzilla look efficient, but most importantly no Transformers.

Look, I love Transformers as much as the next kid who grew up watching the cartoons after school, but it is its own special corner of the giant robot genre, and I don't think it works in this context. I might consider it far into the future in a very different context and most definitely one more in keeping with the source material. But this not only has disaster written all over it, it goes directly against the moral beliefs of the characters you want to use to introduce the idea. Aananda has stated repeatedly that she does not think that it's right to play God when it comes to creating sentient mechanical life. It's why the SIM rooms computer stops short of actual self awareness. In Mass Effect terms, it's a VI rather than an AI. It's an outlook that James shares. Which is why he built gundams instead of giant robots in the first place.

Edit: which is not to say that either of them is anti artificial life forms, but the thing is, once they're sentient they're people with all the rights and freedoms that implies. But their creator is still responsible for them and often can force them to act against their will, and neither of them wants to deal with that temptation. Or the personal guilt if they didn't exercise those controls and a creation of theirs went bad and hurt people. Basically it requires a lot of arrogance or a lot of ignorance or a combo of the two in their opinions to think that creating sentient mechanical life is a good idea. Obviously there are other viewpoints, but this one is pretty understandable for amethyst dragons with their beliefs in free will and such.

Sorry bout that Lyn, I only got to book 2 in the second series... Thats book 4 I think

There's 5 books in each series. So that would be book 7. And I'm only teasing. My kidlet is crazy about those books and has read and reread them all several times. Which has been fun for me because I was crazy about Greek and Roman mythology when I was his age so I read and reread as much of the source material as I could, so it gave us some fun stuff to talk about. :)

Plus it has helped him get really into history. He even went as a praetorian guard for Halloween....and it wasn't easy getting him a costume either since he wanted it to be as historically accurate as possible.

Meanwhile, Asha was driving the nurse to distraction with all of her questions as she was curious about every piece of equipment and her scans were not standard for her species, which required consultations with a doctor. And somewhere in there a frank and uncomfortable (for the nurse) conversation about certain other biological realities and the dispensing of both a bracelet with a contraceptive charm and a charcoal lollipop more as a way to get her to be quiet than a reward for being a good patient. Not that Asha knew that.

Reading through back posts as fast as I can manage it. Apologies if I'm bringing up stuff that's already been resolved, but I just have to take the opportunity to get my two cents in. :)

Re: the Logical Weaknesses discussion:

Magic has the right idea of how the Champion powers work. I think the issue here is that you're looking for the logical weakness in the wrong place. You want it to be part of the powers. But that's not how it works with Champions. Considering we've had two Champions suicide to get out of their contracts within the last couple of in-game days there is definitely something going on here. Being a Champion is not all roses and sunshine. Sometimes phenomenal cosmic power isn't worth the catch. But the catch isn't the powers. The catch is who you work for/ who you are/ how your powers affect the people around you. Ephebe's Patron has put her through hell (literally, that's where she picked up the aschen...technically she still has real estate there) and continues to make her life miserable to the point where she sometimes questions whether all this grief is even worth it. But she stays because of the influence it lets her have over her Patron (and the fact that she has more influence than some others is a plot point, btw, I don't put this stuff in by accident). Meanwhile some other Patrons appear totally benign....for now. But every Champion who has been around to see what's happened to Hope and Light is now living in dread wondering when it's going to be their turn for the crazy, waiting for the other shoe to drop so to speak. None of the Champions are all powerful. They're all mortal and quite beatable, though primarily by other Champions thanks to the teleport thing. So the thing is to exploit the logical weaknesses of both their job and their mortality, personality, etc. And of course the complex web of alliances and oppositions among the Patrons. That factors in too. Almost all of them have an equal but opposite of some fashion or another. (Three guesses who the odd man out is and the first two don't count. :P)

Birthday going well so far. Took the kidlet to brunch (snow day here) and thankfully snow was fluffy and light so it didn't take too much work to shovel the snowdrift away from the back of the car so I could get out. :)
Now I am enjoying some tea. Got out the fine china and am using my new TARDIS teapot which is awesome.
Also got Amazon gift card (Yay, books!), itunes card (Yay, music!), and some jewelry (Yay, shinies! :P) My family really decided to spoil me this year. :D

Birthday going well so far. School was called off on account of the snow, so I took the kidlet to brunch. I did have to shovel the car out of its parking spot, but the apartment management was kind enough to leave shovels in all of the buildings for us to use so I didn't have to go to the office to borrow a shovel like last year. And the snow was fluffy and light so it only took five minutes to deal with the snowplow drift blocking me in. Kidlet had a blast playing in the snow after we got home too. Meanwhile, I got some quiet time to myself. And I decided to get out the good china so I could enjoy some tea from my new TARDIS teapot in a really fancy cup. Add in that I also got an Amazon gift card which means a whole bunch of new books for me and it's pretty much a perfect day. :)

She put a hand on his arm. "It's alright. No sense both of us getting all cut up...it's not the first time I've ever trashed my lair," she added wryly. "I do have a cleanup system."

With that she released her psicrystal swarm from their dimensional pocket inside of her sleeve and the crystals began the process of cleaning and sorting.

Well she sure gave eager permission last ni--- DEAR FLAMES DON'T SAY THAT OUT LOUD!

Ardiente looks extremely conflicted for just a second then nods. "Yes, sir." he says seriously.

"I can't protect her from everything anyway." Ardiente says without quite realizing what he was saying. He blushes and awkwardly tries to correct himself. "Er.. not that she needs protecting. If anything I'm the one who..." He trails off again, looking to the side.

He straightens and stands respectfully before saying: "I'm gonna stop digging myself a hole and just go. Thank you, sir."

I had to clean tea off of my ipad thanks to this post because I laughed so hard at the first line. :D

Sorchan sat back down on the edge of the desk and ran his hand over his face after Ardiente had gone. Suns and stars, but it never ended. Four girls. Four. It was going to kill him before they were all grown up, that was all there was to it.

Ardiente fiddles with his hands still clasped behind his back, looking a little uncomfortable. He glances around to ensure the classroom is empty before speaking.

"Erm... sir." he begins somewhat formally, the nervous tone creeping into his voice. "I..." another pause, then the nervous firebird blurts: "I wanted to formally request permission to court your daughter."

A muscle in his jaw started to twitch and the pencil he was holding snapped in half. He took a deep breath. Got to remember he's a good kid, he told himself. Remember, Pyra will kill you if you follow your instinct to lock the girls up until they're adults and beat up anyone who dares to look at them sideways.

Just saying....I don't want to get back to Avalon, find out we've been tricked, and have to come right back. Tryko'Sam heals....really fast. Why would he still be unconscious if that's really him? And if it is, what's causing the problem adjustng to this plane. I don't notice any of the rest of us having trouble, except Professor Settro a little bit, but not as dramatic. So something is definitely up."

Having said his piece, Jeran trnasforms into a large black wolf and walks over to the girl, sitting down in front of her.
::You were brought here from Avalon....from the place where Tryko'Sam brought you after he took you away from the cultists. Have you met the person in charge of this place?:: he asked telepathically, keeping his mental tone as gentle and kind as possible, not wanting o spook the girl.

Plopped on the ground, or layed down, Tryko'Sam isn't hissing smoke anymore, but his eyes are shut, he appears to catch a quick breath, then stop. It's odd, but, since picking him up in the Abyss, he really hasn't done much.

** spoiler omitted **

The Choosen One watches Jeran step forward with recognition the surprise at his transformation. Again, she appears wide eyed and surprised, but doesn't flee. Sagely though, showing yet again a low level of education or intelligence, she replies with, "Puppy!"

If Jeran WERE a mind reader, he might realize she wants to touch and pet him like a doll, or even dress him up, but thankfully, he's not.

Her actions might...

"Yes, Arthur, you can help. My mom is going to be building a device to close a rift that's been torn between this universe and an alternate universe.

You can't let yourself get distracted even a little since lives depend on it. Yours included by the way. If you think you can't handle it, tough. We haven't got any other options.

Because of course I [expletive deleted] want to be going trick or treating with my eleven year old in Michigan ( hint: it's [expletive deleted[ cold here at the end of October) in a costume that exposes so [expletive deleted] much of my body it makes [expletive deleted] lingerie look modest. Or I will once again be wearing long underwear underneath my [expletive deleted] 'costume' so I don't freeze or look inappropriate around children...why did I buy this [expletive deleted] piece of [expletive deleted] again? Oh yeah, because it was cheaper than sewing a costume....now, that's messed up.

However, I like that he seems to "only" like cute guys in trouble or in need of rescuing.

In many ways he is the stereotypical hero type...he just prefers dudes to damsels. :)

And I'm a little surprised that more people didn't pick up on Jeran's orientation earlier. A couple people guessed as soon as I mentioned that I had a character who was still in the closet. The scene where he had a total non reaction to carrying a mostly naked attractive girl to the infirmary was a dead giveaway apparently.
I think the fact that more people didn't spot it is kind of a product of writing what you know. I come from a very conservative religious background, and this meant I spent a lot of years in the closet. Like postmark in Narnia kind of in the closet. I know exactly what it's like trying to pass as straight when you're not. The wondering what's wrong with you, the desperate wish for someone, anyone to catch you in all the little lies so you can stop being scared of being caught, the constant fear of rejection....and so on... So I used all of that when I was writing for Jeran. And now you know why he has such a hard time making connections with other people.

Fieri sits on the floor next to Vis and rubs his back. "There, there. It's a lot, isn't it? Leaving home, starting a new school, dealing with classmates who sometimes have very dangerous problems? It's okay, Vis. I know it seems scary now, but we are here to protect you. You don't have to be scared. And if you are, that okay. You can build a book fort like Dara's if that will help you feel more safe. He thinks people are really scary too."

For me I had to get to a point where I could let go of the anger. It wasn't hurting anyone but me. Part of that was learning that forgiveness doesn't mean you have to trust that person or put yourself in a position where you have to be vulnerable to them again. It's not about taking down boundaries that are there for a very good reason. its just about letting go of the anger because life is too short to waste obsessing about other people's actions and too long to spend being bitter towards everyone who has ever hurt me. They don't define me unless I let them and I've got better things to focus on.
Now I am a champion grudge holder, so don't think that's an easy attitude for me to maintain. Every day I have to make an effort to just let go of the past and stay focused on now. But it's worth it for the peace of mind it brings. And there are so many other things I need that emotional energy for. :)
Some days I'm better at it than others....
