Suzanne Warmaster Emissary

[22:12] <@Minaplo> [A woman sat on the open stars. Tall, with silver skin and hair like glittering diamonds, that fell to her waist. She sat with one leg folded over the other, and looked with sapphire eyes on her guest.-
[22:12] <@Minaplo> ["So." Said Suzie triumphantly. "You can take other shapes."-
[22:16] <@Minaplo> ["… Sorry?"-
[22:16] <@Minaplo> ["I saw you." Said Suzie. "Day in, day out, floating around like a ducky in a bath, yep. I knew you could change. Everyone said you could. That you could turn into a big hammer or a circle or a flower and stuff, and shoot lasers everywhere, but day after day you just sat there."-
[22:18] <@Minaplo> ["I'm Ramiel." Said Suzie, bending her knees and arms to make vague diamond shapes. "I can change anyway I want, but I'm just gonna sit here and reflect stuff. Out of everything you could be, you chose a big, dumb, pointy blue mirror!"-
[22:21] <@Minaplo> ["You know what I'd be?" Said Suzie. "I'd be lasers. All the time, lasers. In fact I'd be all sorts of bendy lasers. I'd be a big laser, a thousand little lasers, I'd chase people with a mouth made of lasers! And diamonds, I guess. But you just sit there, being dumb and lame. Zeruel moves around, but you just… Sit. Why do you sit, huh, Ramiel? Why don't you do things?"-
[22:24] <@Minaplo> ["Wait." Said Ramiel.-
[22:24] <@Minaplo> ["I remember you. You used to shout at me."-
[22:24] <@Minaplo> ["Every day."-
[22:24] <@Minaplo> [Suzie froze. Somehow she hadn't been expecting Ramiel to notice.-
[22:24] <@Minaplo> ["… It wasn't -every- day."-
[22:25] <@Minaplo> [The Warmaster rose.-
[22:25] <@Minaplo> ["If I were a Lilim, do you know what I would do?"-
[22:26] <@Minaplo> ["First and foremost, I would wake up and enjoy a nice breakfast of smoked animal."-
[22:26] <@Minaplo> ["Then, having digested that, I would enter the day with a spring in my step. Then I would go and greet my friends, of which I have a thousand."-
[22:27] <@Minaplo> ["I would go outside, enjoy the sun on my face and breathe in the sweet air of your world. I would look up at the sky and admire all the clouds, and consider all of their myriad shapes like a spirit scrying the will of God."-
[22:28] <@Minaplo> ["I would then go and plunge myself into a lovely, cold pool of water, where I would swim like a dolphin, admiring my own grace within the great blue."-
[22:29] <@Minaplo> ["Then I would find my own little patch of earth, and having found it, plant within it a dozen seeds, which I would water every day until they became lovely red roses."-
[22:29] <@Minaplo> ["And then, having done all that, I would go to bed, confident that once again, I had refused to teach you how to use lasers."-
[22:29] <@Minaplo> ["Because I can use lasers. And I do not. And you will never have my lasers."-
[22:30] <@Minaplo> [Suzie stared at him. Her face went red.-
[22:30] <@Minaplo> ["Your lasers are dumb anyway!"-
[22:31] <@Minaplo> ["My divine arms would shatter the very continents should I wish it." Said the Warmaster. "And they never will. Because I have them, and you do not."-
[22:31] <@Minaplo> ["W-Why?!"-
[22:32] <@Minaplo> ["Because I am very old, and very wise, and appreciate the little pleasures in life, the graces given to us by God: love, happiness, and purpose."-
[22:33] <@Minaplo> ["And because I am very old, I also know how to be extremely petty. I will tell you a secret now, little Suzanne Sartre, daughter of Raphael, son of Nicolas:-"-
[22:33] <@Minaplo> ["Every time you shouted at me, I moved ever so slightly less."-
[22:33] <@Minaplo> ["… What."-
[22:33] <@Minaplo> ["Yes!" Said the Warmaster. "Like all Lilim, what you were really shouting at was yourself. I was merely a mirror!"-
[22:34] <@Minaplo> [And just like that, the Warmaster's elegant form shifted into that of a floating, extremely reflective blue diamond.-
[22:34] <@Minaplo> ["…"-
[22:34] <@Minaplo> [""-
[22:35] <@Minaplo> ["I am going to make the biggest laser you have ever seen." Said Suzie, her teeth gnashing into each other. "And when I do, I'm gonna find your new home and carve my name on it with my laser."-
[22:35] <@Minaplo> ["If there's still a world left, then it can't possibly be the biggest laser I have ever seen, could it?" Said the Warmaster geometrically.-
[22:35] <@Minaplo> ["Don't be so smug!"-
[22:36] <@Minaplo> ["Or you'll what? Use your nonexistent laser on me?"-
[22:36] <@Minaplo> [A massive positron cannon appeared in Suzie's arms.-
[22:36] <@Minaplo> [She cocked it, aimed it, fired-
[22:37] <@Minaplo> [The Warmaster shapeshifted into a hexagon and fired her own into the beam.-
[22:37] <@Minaplo> [The two beams collided, burning at each other, pushing furiously- Suzie sweating, the Warmaster glistening-
[22:37] <@Minaplo> ["Stop! Stop! Stop!"-
[22:39] <@Minaplo> [A third form plunged into the space. A short form, about five foot six, with long blonde hair and dark brown skin; his eyes were bright red and blue both, somehow.-
[22:42] <@Minaplo> ["Mother, stop." Said the Emissary. "Suzie, please don't fight with her…"-
[22:43] <@Minaplo> ["So, it has come to this." Said the Warmaster. "Even my own child intercedes for this rude little upstart."-
[22:43] <@Minaplo> ["Mother? The big dumb diamond is your mother?!" Said Suzie. "So that's why you never do anything, Zekie!"-
[22:43] <@Minaplo> ["What?" Ezekiel looked shocked. "I did plenty, I thought- I tried, I had oaths-"-
[22:51] <@Minaplo> ["Sounds a lot like being a big dumb diamond to me." Said Suzie firmly.-
[22:52] <@Minaplo> ["Suzie." Said Ezekiel, calmly- with effort. "There are many things you need to understand about me-"-
[22:52] <@Minaplo> ["For example, he is embarrassed of us." Said the Warmaster.-
[22:53] <@Minaplo> ["I am not." Said Ezekiel. "I am very, very proud of you. I am simply unsure how to handle your behaviour-"-
[22:53] <@Minaplo> ["Sounds like he's embarrassed." Said Suzie.-
[22:53] <@Minaplo> ["Why are you doing this, Suzie? This isn't like you-"-
[22:54] <@Minaplo> ["Don't you tell me." Said Suzie. "I don't need to go around making sure no one knows who my mums are because I'm embarrassed, so you just shush your face, Zekie."-
[22:54] <@Minaplo> ["Yes, Zekie. Shush your face." Said the Warmaster.-
[22:54] <@Minaplo> [Geometrically.-
[22:54] <@Minaplo> ["…"-
[22:54] <@Minaplo> [The positron beams vanished.-
[22:55] <@Minaplo> [Ezekiel stared at the Warmaster. "… You planned this."-
[22:55] <@Minaplo> [The Warmaster- back in human form- was laughing. She was shaking Suzie's hand vigorously. "Naturally."-
[22:55] <@Minaplo> ["We got you pretty good, Zekie. You shoulda seen your dumb face." Said Suzie.-
[22:56] <@Minaplo> ["This is the first chance we've had to talk like old times. And you… Played a practical joke on me." Said Ezekiel.-
[22:56] <@Minaplo> ["This is the first chance I've had to play practical jokes in eons." Said the Warmaster. "Someone needed to convince the younger generation that the People of Thought are not just ancient decrepits mourning a lost empire."-
[22:57] <@Minaplo> ["… Though she really did appear to me to harangue me about being a lazy diamond." Said the Warmaster.-
[23:00] <@Minaplo> ["And what did you say?"-
[23:01] <@Minaplo> ["I just told her how I didn't choose my form, but was squeezed into it by the pressure of the wielder of the cradle of Adam, so I could take on a form helpful to saving humanity from its enemies."-
[23:01] <@Minaplo> ["So you deliberately made her feel guilty."-
[23:01] <@Minaplo> ["Yes."-
[23:01] <@Minaplo> ["This is why I am embarrassed of your behaviour. You act like a child!" Said the Emissary.-
[23:03] <@Minaplo> ["That's why we get along so well." Said the Warmaster happily.-
[23:03] <@Minaplo> ["Ramiel's already showing me how to use lasers in this guestsalt thing." Said Suzie. "I'm gonna use 'em when I get back into the real world, too!"-
[23:03] <@Minaplo> ["I see." Said the Emissary slowly.-
[23:05] <@Minaplo> ["Stay and play with us awhile, child." Said the Warmaster. "I have missed you."-
[23:05] <@Minaplo> ["C'mon." Said Suzie. "Don't leave us looking like a grumpy."-
[23:06] <@Minaplo> ["… Fine, for you, Suzie." Said the Emissary, cracking a little smile. "I'll show you how how to truly wield your lasers."-
[23:06] <@Minaplo> ["Yessssssssssssssssssssssssssss!"]
