For The Love Of Life 1 4a

[07:22] <Sept> "…no, that's not right, either. You must've taken a wrong turn."
03[07:26] * Aline (902.721.681.27|enilA#902.721.681.27|enilA) has joined #nervfrance2
[07:27] <@Minaplo> ["I took the right turn according to your directions. They must be wrong."]
[07:29] <Sept> "I -know- this ship. It's not a shifting labyrinth, everything's very clearly set up."
[07:30] <@Minaplo> ["My senses are flawless. I did not take a wrong turn, and I do not distract easily."]
[07:33] <Sept> "Then we go back and consult the signs or a map!"
[07:34] <@Minaplo> ["There is a third option."]
[07:36] <Sept> "Yes?" Sera demanded impatiently.
03[07:40] * Raphael (ua.moc.odod.lsd.citats.122-511-841-221|leahpaR#ua.moc.odod.lsd.citats.122-511-841-221|leahpaR) has joined #nervfrance2
[07:42] <@Minaplo> [Sera felt Armin's hand release his arm. Footsteps.-
[07:43] <@Minaplo> ["Excuse me, my lovely lady, but might I ask a favour? Would you happen to be able to lead us to the central meeting room? We're lost."-
[07:43] <@Minaplo> [There was a pause.-
[07:43] <@Minaplo> [And then a voice. "You're lost, chaos child?" Crowed Isabelle Bellamy.]
02[07:46] * Raphael (ua.moc.odod.lsd.citats.122-511-841-221|leahpaR#ua.moc.odod.lsd.citats.122-511-841-221|leahpaR) Quit (Ping timeout)
06[07:46] * Sept puffed up in retaliation. "You. The -last- thing I needed."
03[07:46] * Raphael (~12.741.801.85|leahpaR#12.741.801.85|leahpaR) has joined #nervfrance2
[07:47] <@Minaplo> ["In general, or right now?"]
[07:49] <Sept> "Figure of speech. Right now. Yes, I'm fucking lost. And my seeing-eye weapon didn't come with an intimate understanding of positron battleship architecture. I'll be running late for the meeting at this rate."
03[07:53] * Minaplo|Out (~ua.ten.tenii.nyd.532-311-071-421|olpaniM#ua.ten.tenii.nyd.532-311-071-421|olpaniM) has joined #nervfrance2
02[07:54] * @Minaplo (ua.ten.tenii.nyd.532-311-071-421|olpaniM#ua.ten.tenii.nyd.532-311-071-421|olpaniM) Quit (Ping timeout)
03[07:54] * Minaplo|Out is now known as Minaplo
[07:56] <Minaplo> ["Poor directions." Said Armin. "He needs my help. He's blind."-
[07:57] <Minaplo> ["Blind? You're blind, chaos child?"]
[07:59] <Sept> "YES! What, you couldn't tell? Shouldn't be hard to see!"
[08:01] <Minaplo> ["With you, chaos child, there isn't much difference between physical blindness and the usual blindness with which you happily conduct your daily affairs. Did your last mission not go so well? My condolences. It must be awful to have lost something so integral…"]
[08:07] <Sept> "And if I lived like you, I'd have nothing left! I can afford to shut my eyes now and try to survive! I only -need- to be awake when this ends!"
[08:08] <Minaplo> ["So you're quite used to letting others see for you. Funny…"]
[08:13] <Sept> "Yes. Hilarious. We're -going- to find the solution. Once we kill Metatron, there's no other choice."
[08:19] <Minaplo> ["This conversation is highly vague." Said Armin. He was ignored.-
[08:23] <Minaplo> ["Isn't that your entire being? Choice?"]
[08:24] <Sept> "What do you mean?"
[08:33] <Minaplo> ["Do you think I call you the chaos child merely because looking at you gives me a migraine? A person so fragmented doesn't become fragmented because they've stuck to a single path. You are like a broken mirror… No, one can look into a mirror. You are like a shrapnel grenade, and you have the potential to go off in any direction."]
[08:41] <Sept> "…of course. And when 01 disagrees on the course to take, it's quite tempting to just… go my separate ways, so to speak."
[08:42] <Minaplo> ["Why don't you?"]
[08:44] <Sept> "There's something better past all this. Better for all of you."
[08:52] <Minaplo> ["I should note that we're still late for the meeting." Said Armin.-
[08:54] <Minaplo> [Sera would feel a hand on his cheek. A cool hand, the skin rough and callused…-
[08:55] <Minaplo> ["01 doesn't strip away all of your choices. There are many endings beyond this that are better for all of us."-
[08:55] <Minaplo> ["I don't know which one you will choose, however, all I know is that you will have a choice. To be honest, that horrifies me."]
[08:58] <Sept> "It does me, too."-
[08:58] <Sept> "…oh, the meeting. Can you help me? We can continue this over tea if you want."
[08:59] <Minaplo> ["If you came from that direction, then you passed it three blocks ago."]
[09:00] <Sept> "Did we?"
[09:01] <Minaplo> ["You said it yourself, my friend. I do not have 'an intimate understanding of positron battleship architecture'." Said Armin quietly.-
[09:01] <Minaplo> [Isabelle clucked her tongue. "Turn around, keep walking until you see a sign that says 'Primary Meeting and Briefing Room'."]
06[09:06] * Sept took a deep breath. "…alright. Thank you for your help, Caretaker. Isabelle. And your understanding. Let's go."
[09:06] <Minaplo> [Sera would take a step. His legs would instantly catch on something and he'd tumble over onto the ground.]
06[09:08] * Sept swore profusely in French, as he was wont to do. He tried to get back on his feet with as little fuss as possible.
[09:09] <Minaplo> [There were very, very light footsteps leading away at this, the sound accompanied by constant feminine laughter.-
[09:09] <Minaplo> [Armin pulled Sera up by the arm gently.]
[09:15] <Sept> "Gh. Yeah. Hope she was right."
[09:19] <Minaplo> ["I do not know if she is right. But I do know that she is magnificent." Murmured Armin. "Beautiful; her scars do not detract but add to her splendour. Not the willow, that one."]
