The building in question stood at the edges of the anarchic city that was Persistence. It was only 5 stories high, and instead of being made of normal building materials, it was metal and had shutters and enough armoring on the outside to survive a direct meteor collusion, as is pretty common with this particular country. Outside the building there was a sign that said Science Summit, and some balloons tied to it as the front doors remained open. Waiting outside is non other then the Scion herself, as organizer and hostess, she was determined to make this as comfortable and smooth as possible. After what happened to Improvidence, and to Kida, the Scion was determined to do every single thing within her power to not only learn what this Plauge was, but to find a way to save her planet.

^Sass appears in the wherever with her Uncle at her side. She catches the coin and she puts it away in her bag. She grabs her Uncle’s arm as they move to the seat. Both are dressed to the nines in their business attire. Sass is wearing a blazer with a button up shirt under it. She wears heels and pants a suit. Her Uncle matches the attire. Both are wearing black. Sass’ hair is up in a messy bun while her Uncle’s back hair is tied up into a slick pony tail. The Uncle gives Adam a dirty glare^ Shut up. You don’t know what’s going on. ^He growls. His tone commands attention^

The swirling death cloud of golden hue now rests across much of the southeastern portion of the Northern Continent, and anywhere it touches, life, structure, form, all melt into dust. There is also a second outbreak, a cloud that has appeared just south of the city of Ar’Elis, on the Great Eastern Continent of Hellifyno, and while this instance has not grown, it has also not receded, and remains a threat to the greatest cities of the old world. However here, on the island of Palisade, the death clouds are far away, leaving you all in relative safety, as you discuss this mounting global issue.

How rare was it that one left the lab to find OTHERS calling for science, for intelligence! Alas, in this modern age, even though it had been birthed by advancement in technologies, it was all taken for granted. But! In times of crisis, in times of need… it was BEGGED for! Well! Possibility was not a woman to force others onto their knees and beg for her! She freely gave herself to them instead, providing the release they needed from the burdens of not being intelligent enough to solve their own problems! And so she was wheeling a cart covered in a white sheet up to the building so she could offer people the raw genius that they so desperately needed.

A portal opened up infront of the building. It wasn’t very big, or very wide, just enough to let a average sized male through. And that’s pretty much what came through. Hisan, the being which seems to be of robotic and organic make, stepped onto the ground infront of the metal building. His light gray hair seemed both metalic and organic, as if flesh was pieced together as plating would. His pale skin looked dead cold, as did thoes green eyes. On his body there was something that looked like clothes, but one could not tell if they really were clothes. It was made out of some sort of dark gray fabric, but it had a hole in it’s chest which showed what looked like an eye or seed on Hisan’s chest. One of his arms was completely robotic, while the other was part organic and part robotic. “I hear something about a plague? I’ve been interested for quite a while…” He said, his voice quite soft.

Loads of scientists, specialists, even wizards and wise men showed up to the call for science. As they walked into the building, they were screened and any items deemed weapons were held until they exited the building, no exceptions or ways around it as Kishimoto Incorporated was secure. One inside, there were signs to lead everyone to the auditorium in which everyone was meeting.
 
The room was a massive auditorium, with a large, clear table in the middle of the room and dozens of chair. One wall was just a solid white projection screen, while the other had several tables of refreshments, and the farthest table had a stack of notebooks and data pads. Natural light pored in from the skyline, and brightened up the room with a soft, calming light.

^The Uncle takes his seat first and then he pulls Sass onto his lap to make sure she doesn’t get up and done something stupid. Sass puts her feet on the seat next to her, reserving it for her favorite and only assistant, Chris. She looks up to her Uncle and beams up to him before she watches every thing and everyone that’s happening and coming in. She waves to the others that are in the room with a warm smile. It was quickly snuffed out with her Uncle’s icy glare. She huffs^

10/21 01:43PM
Standing by one of the of the chairs was the Crimson Weapon Alchemist herself, standing at 5’4 with a mess of firetruck red hair, pale skin, golden eyes void of any iris. Today she wore a simple purple tank top, black jeans and combat boots; with a white lab coat over it. “Welcome, ladies and gentlemen. Thank you for coming to this congregation. My name is Kurai Kishimoto, Chief Science Officer of Kishimoto Incorporated; I look forward to working with the lot of ya’ll.” Right behind her was an android no taller then her, with solid blue hair, a solid womanly figure, complete with a sleek, blueish metal design. Quietly, the droid watched and recorded the entire event.

-surrendering any visible weapons she may be carrying to the check points, she clutches her pack along with the bird move in taking a seat to one of the sides of the auditorium tossing a leather board book onto the seat beside her the raven taking to sitting on the back of the seat for a moment in front of her she gets out her drawing implements-
 
Hisan
 
10/21 01:46PM
The being had no weaponry, for it deemed such items to not be needed. Once he arrived at the auditorium, he quickly looked around the room. “Kind of… Large for a conference room…” He said to not one specific before he moved more into the room. There were seats, but he did not sit. He prefered to stand. His eyes did notice Lily though. He remembered their encounter before.

^Sass sits up straight in her Uncle’s lap and her ears perks up and turns to Kurai. She pulls out a notepad and a pencil, ready to write down things. Her Uncle watches Kurai with a serious expression on his face. He hides his mouth as he scratches the stubble on his chin. His hand moves to Sass’ hair, slowly petting it as he listens to them^

Anthem came in and took a seat, she’d probably not have much to add in terms of intelligence; but she had working common sense, at the very least she’d be present to lift the heavy sciency things if need be. Quietly, she watched and waited.

-jots down familiar faces of those whom she remembered into the book her eyes falling on the andriod form she had meet briefly before canting her head a brow raised she wasnt surprised as the form had suggested he was interest in the cloud so seeing him here wasnt out of place-

10/21 01:53PM
Kurai nodded to everyone who showed up, filling up most of the seats around the clear table. “Very well. Now, before we begin, lets go around the table and introduce ourselves.” She started with her left, and various NPC’s introduced themselves as scientists, doctors, and magical specialists. She looked around to note everyone in turn. At the same time, she lifted her right hand up and an orange holographic display of her omni-tool lit up. With her left, she typed some rapid commands to remember everyone’s names. At the same time, on the wall behind her, it lit up with a satellite image of the Golden Plague from space, or rather, what it looked like caught on camera.

Shyly the boy stood with the invitation, eyeing the location. His jacket was seemingly too big for him, as the rather full bag was dangling from his shoulder. The gray eyes examined who was apparent, as he uneasily shifted on the spot. He did realize that this meeting was of great importance, and he had to do his best, if he could. Despite lacking skills in chemistry, he was highly advanced in knowledge of engineering and physics, down to a quantum study. Keeping his hands in his pockets, his mouth was hidden in the scarf. Was he late? his gray eyes showed worry. So many people, that were apparently the great minds of Hellifyno had gathered. That made Christopher very anxious. He glanced around, looking how he could fit in without causing too much of disturbance.

^The Uncle watches every thing and when it came to Sass’ turn he blink and taps her shoulder. She blinks out of a spacey daze and she giggles. She clears her throat and then gives everyone a warm and awkward smile^ Hello, my name is Sasuke Alexanderia Firemist or Sassy. I’m the newest Trade Lord in Persistence. This is my Uncle. ^She gestures to the man who she is sitting on^ He’s my second hand man. ^The Uncle just gives everyone a brief wave before looking up to Sass whose smile quickly faded^
 
^She sighs^

Notes, that light itself melts in the cloud, making satellite and camera imagery of the cloud very unpredictable. On the screens you will see patches of yellow interspersed with areas of nothing, shifting winds that appear to vanish and emerge in loping gates. The cloud at once appears near, and also far, and at the same time it is not there. Any attempts to monitor via luminary modes are thwarted, leaving your sensors confounded and your outputs confused.
 
Hisan
 
10/21 01:57PM
“Introductions… If such are really needed, very well… I am Hisan.” He looked to Kurai. He wouldn’t say more than he needed to, not in this scenario. His eyes did glance at the orange display she sad, raising a brow to it. He heard that most people here didn’t have the technology to create something like himself, yet they had holographic displays just like that. Most interesting.

“I’m Anthem, I’m sure most of you already know who I am.” She waved, leaning back into her chair and popping open a fresh notebook to start writing in. It was almost like school all over again.
 
Professor Possibility
 
10/21 02:01PM
“GREETINGS.” With a pull, Possi tugged the sheet off of her cart once she’d arrived where everyone was seated, arriving just in time after some mild distractions snooping around and getting lost in thoughts. But if she was going to introduce herself, she might as well showcase her work, which was a part of her very being, extensions of her mind, her very essence. There was… a mess of things on that cart. Some looked vaguely weapon-like, others… you’d need lengthy presentations to fully explain. But, regardless, she CLIMBED onto the cart and swept her arms around before holding them overhead… and a preplanned sound of thunder sounded from a speaker hidden somewhere on her person. “AND I, FEEBLE MINDS, AM THE GREAT PROFE–” She choked from yelling. “Ahem. I AM THE GREAT PROFESSOR POSSIBILITY! MWAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAH!!”
 
“But I am also called ‘Possi’ for short.” She sat down after that.
 
Sasuke “Sassy” Firemist
 
10/21 02:03PM
^She blinks at Possi and she giggles. She already likes this woman. The Uncle just groans as he watches her. He shakes his head and pinches the bridge of his nose^ Great… More lunatics… ^He grumbles. Sassy looks over to him with a smile^
 
Sass: She seems fun though.
 
Christopher Page
 
10/21 02:05PM
Thank god, Christopher just made it to introductions. That means that he wasn’t too late. Looking around, he did notice a familiar face. It was miss Sassy. The boy gave a smile, as he carefully neared her, holding his bag on his side. It was clear that the item was heavy. As every self respecting being of science, he came prepared. He had his own ideas of how he could help the team, if the situation was appropriate. Taking off his hat. the boy had no weapons to begin with. Mostly science apparatus. The boy jumped hearing Possibility’s introduction. Such a colorful bunch had gathered. The woman might have not noticed him. He spoke first once he was by her. “Good day, miss Sassy, I am very sorry that I am late.” He gave a hasty bow towards her, before looking at the presentation boards. “I had little run ins on the way here.”
 
Sasuke “Sassy” Firemist
 
10/21 02:06PM
^She leans into Chris with a smile once he claims his seat. She moves her feet and giggles^ It’s alright, love, we’re going through introductions. It’ll be your turn shortly so smile and say your name and occupation loud and clear. You can do that much.
 
Kurai and EIRA
 
10/21 02:08PM
“Oh-okay.” Kurai replied to the Professor as she climbed up on her cart, putting into the back of her head that Lily and Sassy didn’t introduce themselves For complete transparency of the operation, she’d make it a point to get the name later. As for now, she kept on. “So, today we plan to over to this cloud and see if we can figure out what makes it tick, and perhaps develop a countermeasure to it. As you can see from these aerial shots, the phenomenon displaces, if not completely destroys light partials. So normal means of analyzing or recording it result in this. Does anyone here have any ideas what this cloud is?” She started with the obvious.

Christopher Page
 
10/21 02:08PM
The boy shook a little. Introductions weren’t his strong suite in such large crowds. He leaned towards Sassy. “But…. but what is my occupation? So far I have been making little robots for you, miss Sassy.” He asked, as his British accent sounded clear worry. The boy unbuttoned his jacked and slowly took it off, tugging the scarf and the hat in his sleeve, before placing the bunch in his lap. His voice was lightly trembling.

Zack
 
10/21 02:10PM
A helicopter landed a short walk away from the building and out hopped Zack, 4 armed guards and 5 what looked to be some scientists. They walked to the check point and surrendered their weponary. They walked in to the building and sighed, “Sorry I’m late, the copter had trouble flying.

Kurai and EIRA
 
10/21 02:11PM
Kurai nodded towards Lily. “Yes, miss?”
 
Christopher Page
 
10/21 02:11PM
As Kurai changed the subject the boy nodded and looked at the presentation, taking out his journal and the well decorated pen. He didn’t wish to be the one to talk whilst the meeting was going on unless asked. The boy’s gray eyes were filled with concentration. The cloud he had only read about it in description and news. An entity that was able to kill anything that entered it. Uncontrollable and dangerous. And some sources indicate that some beings were behind it or worshiping it. That was all that the boy knew. He glanced at Lily as she asked the question.

“im not 100% what is it but i know it reacts with the energys that goven most of your cities here”
 
Sasuke “Sassy” Firemist
 
10/21 02:13PM
^Sass is listening to the others as the Uncle leans back in his seat and listening. She scribbles some stuff down as Lily talks. The Uncle pipes out^
 
Uncle: Could it be with a new type of AM if it reacts to energies?
 
Kurai and EIRA
 
10/21 02:15PM
“What energies? Like electricity?” The redhead questioned, looking back to EIRA and noting that the robot was paying attention and recording. “I don’t think Anti Magic displaces photons? Though that’s a good point, let’s put a pin in that.”
 
Professor Possibility
 
10/21 02:15PM
“A-HA!” Possi held up a finger as that observation was mentioned. “So if visible light does not work, and that is only ONE part of the electromagnetic spectrum… I wonder what other parts of the spectrum are affected by this cloud… What if the part that absorbs the light only works on the surface? DO we have reports of being able to see while INSIDE the cloud? If so… ” She scratched her chin. “The ways it interacts with radiation of any sort would be… amazing.” As for the idea of it being AM? “Anti-Magic? I wouldn’t believe so. The idea of something absorbing visible light like this, but in a gaseous form? That seems to fall, as far as I know, outside of the realm of…” And then she grinned. “…Outside the realm of possibility.”
 
Christopher Page
 
10/21 02:15PM
The pen moved like crazy, making notes of the conversation. Electrical field instabilities could lead to magnetic anomalies. That was a possibility. The boy looked at Kurai to see the deduction of this hypothesis. AM, Anti Magic, or as some said Anti Material holding many forms, the purest one being of that, which could melt a person in an instance, if it was connected to magical connections. The boy scrached the idea out. That would mean that non magical beings could enter. That shouldn’t be the case. But perhaps it was a worse formation that that. Photons might be possibility. Chris rose his arm.
 
Hisan
 
10/21 02:15PM
“If one knew exactly what it was, would probably would not be having a meeting such as this, would we?” He raised a brow. Then he glanced to Lily. “Most things react to energy. It just depends on what kind. What energy is mostly used in the cities on this planet? Is it common electricity or something different?” He was already thinking of multiple different things it could be. “Do we have any sort of sample of said cloud? That would make things a lot simpler.”
 
Sasuke “Sassy” Firemist
 
10/21 02:16PM
^Sass is just scribbling down. She peers over to Chris’ notes and writes down some things she understands from that. He nods to Possi’s understanding^
 
Uncle: This is Hellifyno…
 
Sass: Anyfin is possible here.
 
Uncle: Yes, especially with magic.
 
Lily Ann Black (Lady W.Duskore)
 
10/21 02:17PM
lil glances to hisan..”attempts have been made to take samples but as you see from the screen it changes its light and pattern as such so observing it fully to analysis it has proven a struggle-
 
Isabo amethyst Hendrix
 
10/21 02:17PM
I rubbed my eyes and then stood drinking my coffee an addressed everyone loud and clear so everyone can hear me.” that death cloud is drawn to Negative, and if anything further proves this point ” holds up the new paper about Kida and Andres fight ” this is what drew the cloud to them.”
 
Kurai and EIRA
 
10/21 02:19PM
Kurai didn’t respond to Hisan, figuring it obvious that the question, however obvious it was, needed to be asked. Either way, she looked around the room, a dull vibration of everyone writing at the same time. A dull murmur of whispers as some people talked quietly amongst themselves as they didn’t have any idea. “That is a good point too professor. Let us make point to subject the cloud to the full spectrum of light, both visible and invisible. I’ve received reports that very few things survive in the cloud before being melted down. Organics tend to mutate in the cloud as well, so it is unknown if the inside will react uniformly to the outside.”
 
Sasuke “Sassy” Firemist
 
10/21 02:19PM
Uncle: Isabo, could brief those who doesn’t know about this, like myself, about what happened? I am not sure how many are up to speed with this.
 
Christopher Page
 
10/21 02:20PM
The boy waited patiently. The murmuring of scientists did seem rather chaotic, and it was getting harder and harder to follow the conversation this way. Maybe he was reading too many science articles, but he wished to be as profession as possible, for time is used most efficiently, when certain order taken in mind. He looked around, hearing the possibilities, adding to his small Hypothesis. It might be wrong, but every little helps. Dissolving perhaps wasn’t the case. Maybe there was something more to it, but thinking of how crazy the idea might be, his arm slowly lowered.
 
Hisan
 
10/21 02:20PM
“There are other thing we could observe than simply the way light effects it. Even if moving it a simple inch would change it, we can learn from that. We can study that. There is much information you can obtain from even a no longer usable object.” He sighed. “Then we have absolutely nothing..? That is a shame. That means throwing out baseless speculations will just result in a waste of time…”
 
Lily Ann Black (Lady W.Duskore)
 
10/21 02:20PM

Kurai and EIRA
 
10/21 02:21PM
Kurai pointed to Chris. “Yes?”
 
Christopher Page
 
10/21 02:23PM
The boy almost jumped, as he hopped up from his seat, “Christopher Page, inventor for persistence. I was thinking.” he slightly stuttered. “W… What if the disappearance of photons could be leading to a gravity like properties. Photons do bend to gravity, as the interstellar observations show. And the reports of prolonged screams within could lead to thin that this possibly magnetic anomaly, that has connection to electric wavelengths shares a similar to a…” he looked around, hoping that he wouldn’t seem like a fool. “To a black hole…”
 
Isabo amethyst Hendrix
 
10/21 02:23PM
” the cloud mutated and formed another cloud, to go to the fight.it is drawn to negative energy, fighting,blood shed” I sighed heaving known both of them. ” this cloud started at sprout, because of everything that happened there. “
 
Sasuke “Sassy” Firemist
 
10/21 02:23PM
Sass: But speculations can bring us closer to the truth as in testing each theory out. ^She speaks to Hisan before she glances over to the general group^ Couldn’t we take an air sample from this cloud? I mean, it couldn’t be *that* hard to take an air sample, right?
 
^She then looks over to Chris and gives him a proud beam. He did it! He spoke to a crowd at a big conference. She then listens as she readies her writing tool^
 
Professor Possibility
 
10/21 02:24PM
“Such an anomaly… Strange interactions with visible light AND it seems to be interacting with negativity?” She rubbed her hands together after speed reading the paper about some kind of street brawl between people she’d never heard of and didn’t seem important. “PERHAPS… I could genetically engineer a species of sentient rats that we could isolate to an artificially constructed island, and make them so that they are EXTREMELY negative! Both in attitude and maybe even in terms of magnetic charge, if that is what you meant by that, madam.” And she had another stray thought. “AND THEN WE DETONATE A GAMMA RAY BOMB INSIDE OF IT. Just to see what happens. I’ve always wanted to put one inside of a real black hole, so if it has strange effects on gravity LIKE a black hole, that would be valuable data.” For her.
 
Hisan
 
10/21 02:26PM
“If it were such gravity, then the area in which the clouds reside would be destroyed…” He looked at Christopher. “However, your theory is the best sounding yet…”
 
Kurai and EIRA
 
10/21 02:26PM
“Formulating a hypothesis is important Hisan, gives us a starting point rather than just going half cocked at this thing without a plan. That’s also how the scientific method.” Then looking at Chris. “That’s good, this thing could have a strong magnetic field, and have a connection to a singularity. But it’s also drawn to negative emotions…” She made note of that for later, typing it into her Omni-Tool.
 
Sasuke “Sassy” Firemist
 
10/21 02:27PM
Sass: Sounds like we should boot my uncle out of this room. He’s filled with negativity…
 
^The Uncle groans^
 
Uncle: If only you weren’t my niece… ^He grumbles^
 
Christopher Page
 
10/21 02:28PM
The boy rose his pen. as he watched at other scientists somewhat talking over. His glance escaped to Sassy, letting out a faint smile. Still standing up, as he had given the chance to speak, he heard at the crazy theories of a solution without knowing the cause in the first place. The boy waited for Kunai’s answer, before he could back the theory up. He was doing his homework, that was for sure. He glanced around smiling brightly. “We can’t know for sure, but surely, if the property is similar, yet not with such forced gravity towards outer entities, perhaps the gravity pull begins just behind event horizon. Maybe a mechanized scouting party would be of great assistance, to learn more about this entity…” He spoke a little bit more confidently.
 
Kurai and EIRA
 
10/21 02:30PM
“Alright. So we have a couple of working ideas now. And Anthem, your going to submit for a blood test.” With that said, a nurse came up and gestured the Scion out of the room. “That might be important for later.” She nodded, then stated. “We can send a mechanized force, but I do most of my investigations on ground zero. So with your working idea, those who wish to see it with your own two eyes; I have a fabricator on standby to create an environmental suit so we can go see this thing…”
 
Sasuke “Sassy” Firemist
 
10/21 02:30PM
^She then whisper to her Uncle^ Look at Chris! He looks like a scientist. Just so proud of him…

10/21 02:30PM
Shakes my head laughing at Sassy “it’s drawn to fighting, specifically blood shed, if you’re amped enough to physically want to hurt someone , that it self is a pulse of energy. ” Rubbed my eyes” the body normally produce what 50 wats of energy, how much more are you putting out when you want to murder someone’s face …?”
 
Sasuke “Sassy” Firemist
 
10/21 02:30PM
Sass: I’m guessing it is something over 50, huh?
 
Hisan
 
10/21 02:31PM
He looked to Kurai. “I an not an organic, so I doubt that I shall require a suit such as you’re saying.” He glanced to Isabo. “If it’s drawn to negative emotions, it could be sentient. Meaning all organics would be in danger.”
 
Christopher Page
 
10/21 02:32PM
Chris wished to add the last insurance to his proposal. “I… If I may…” he spoke. “I suggest that an optical cable is con.. connected to the unit, so that in event of destruction, we do not lose the feed, thus if the scouting party is lost, we would still have visual material of the ins… inside.” His arms began to shake. he was clearly stressed out.
 
Sasuke “Sassy” Firemist
 
10/21 02:32PM
Sass: Question; is magic considered organic or something else? I mean, we have pure magical beings here and all…
 
Hisan
 
10/21 02:33PM
He looked at Sass. “If you’re made of flesh and blood, you’re organic.”
 
Kurai and EIRA
 
10/21 02:33PM
“This thing melts through solid bedrock, but suit yourself.” She replied “I would suggest to put anything between yourself and this thing, as it seems to melt down anything.”
 
Sasuke “Sassy” Firemist
 
10/21 02:33PM
^Sass reaches out to Chris and puts her hand on his shoulder. She gives him a smile and then pulls him close to her. She whispers^ You’re doing great. Keep it up, hon.
 
^She then looks over to Hisan^ Right but I mean purely here because made of magic.
 
Sasuke “Sassy” Firemist
 
10/21 02:33PM

His attention went back to Kurai. “Interesting… All the more reason to experience it.” He extanded his hand as a small tablet materialized. He threw it to Christopher. “I’ll send you a live feed of what I see…” And back to Sassy. “I would consider magic as energy. The act of magic is not organic, while the product can be organic.”

“It mutates, drives mad.” Then she nodded Chris. “Yes, of course. So, who will be coming then?” She looked towards EIRA. “Ready the fabricator and the portal generator. Set us to 10- ground zero. Initialize recon drones 17 through 24 and prepare a STARS.” The android nodded in response then walked off.

The boy’s lip quivered as he nodded towards Sassy, looking back at Kurai, to see if this case of first action would be acceptable as the first test towards the solution. His face was almost as pale as his hair, as the gray eyes glanced at Sassy once more, a projection. “P… Perhaps we could send two types of pa… parties. A mechanical a… and a magical. M.. multiple methods cou… could pr… provide different results.” Why was he still talking? Was his mind turned on autopilot.

“Drawn to mental states, but also CHANGES them?” Rubbing her hands together, Possibility started to laugh. And cackle. Her whole body shook as she eventually tilted her head back. “MMMMMWAHAHAHAHA! That is BRILLIANT… This cloud, it sounds like an INGENIUS weapon.” And she shot up out of her seat then. “OF COURSE.” She pointed at all of these others. “You say it started in SPROUT? This HAS to be by DESIGN. Not happenstance!”

He raised his hand. “I’ll be coming. Most can be learned from direct exposure, and I may be able to bring back a sample for examination.” He moved closer to Kurai. “However, I’ll be only focusing on the cloud, and not on anyone else coming with. If you get injured, that shall be your own downfall.”

The screens in the room shift from the wavering unpredictable blobs that were their best attempts at representing the death cloud, to listing facts gleamed from recent experience, past interactions, and the previous experimental trip to Sprout. It lists that all things, are melted by the cloud. This includes light, organics, mechanics, machines, buildings, mountains and everything in between. The one exception is that certain things are not melted instantly, they instead mutate, always into something horrible and deadly and wishing for death. This occurs more often in advanced organics, such as highly magical beings. Recently Kida, the goddess of Twine, used the entirety of her powers to call to the death cloud, and while she wasn’t melted, she turned into a hideously disfigured monstrosity of pure madness and insanity, wreaking havoc on the world. We do know that it has no effect on cinnamon, allowing cinnamon suits to be worn in relative safety in the cloud. However, samples of the cloud, even in cinnamon laced bags, are instable and tend to explode within minutes of collection. Sprout was protected against it, by using one of the most powerful objects of Hyandrian lore ever, and it only held the cloud at bay for a mile or two. When that artifact was replaced by a lesser item, the cloud started to grow exponentially. Gaian magic also works in similar properties, requiring all of the practitioners of life magic in existence to work together just to carve out a few miles of safety. AM is also particularly effective, melting the cloud itself away, as well as all other magic or supernatural substance in the vicinity. And it did destroy Improvidence during the battle of the gods, and has shown other signs of being effected by emotion and will.

His eyes turned towards Uncle. Oh no. No. That wasn’t what he meant. Sending a living person could mean risking the life of the scout. That wasn’t his intent. Oh what had he done? Shaking he turned his head to hear Kurai’s decision. Slightly hoping that she would weave out a better solution. Could Chris be making the wrong decisions? He jumped eyeing the screens. “C… Cinnamon?” The boy’s eyes narrowed. Why cinnamon of all substances. Did it have something to do with magic. Why was cinnamon the substance that had this property. He had frozen on the spot, his head clicking gears like crazy inside.

He looked at the screens. “Cinnamon?” He extanded his hand as it slowly started to cover itself in cinnamon. “So long as there are particles to transmute…” He said quietly to himself. Perhaps he could even transmute the cloud itself? He wasn’t sure, but it would be worth trying.

10/21 02:44PM
The screen notes that it was the Nymphs that first discovered the properties of cinnamon and its resistance to the cloud. It also notes that some of those same nymphs are now part of a break away religion that worships the Golden Plague, currently centered on several captured neighborhoods in the city of Ar’Elis. Their appearance, heralded the second outbreak of this cloud by just a few days, the existence of which plagues the lands just south of Ar’Elis.

^Sass frowns at Chris and she sighs. Poor thing. She is quickly interrupted by her uncle getting up. She bangs her face into the table with a loud bang. She groans as she slides to the floor. She rubs her nose with another groan. The Uncle turns into an inky black cloud and he floats to where he is needed which is wherever the scouting is going to take place. Meanwhile, Sass is on her knees, recovering from the bonk^

“From what we see on screen, you’re fine if you wear cinmon. ” then it clicked something from earth. Came.to mind”if I may, use the screen for a moment” flipping the screen over bringing up earth Lore about plague doctors . and how they wore masks laced with something simliar.
 
Kurai and EIRA
 
10/21 02:45PM
Kurai looked over the information gleamed from the previous experiments, showing several things that this cloud just instantly melts. Though there are things that aren’t instantly melted, but rathered mutated and those things she needed samples of she was sure. “Cinnamon huh? That’s… something. But why? This cloud, is definitely not a natural occurrence, so I doubt its any specifically enzyme or protein. The gas even seems to self destruct when collected, showing even more that it was sentient, especially..” She trailed off as she read the screen, then nodded to Isabo when she requested permission.
 
Christopher Page
 
10/21 02:45PM
Think Christopher think. He thought to himself. Why cinnamon. Was it a chemical reaction. No. It clearly wasn’t cinnamon had similar carbon structure of any dried out plant, so why was it? Did it have something to a scent, taste. Magical entities were always irrational. Unexplained. Too difficult to understand. Think Christopher, Think. You were fine if you wear cinnamon? Why? The boy looked at the screens. Safe if you enter with cinnamon? “Miss Kurai?”
 
Kurai and EIRA

“Yes, Christopher?” The redhead looked over to him, clearly in thought as well.

Christopher Page
 
10/21 02:48PM
He tilted his head, slightly unable to believe his own words. Some theories had sparked up, slightly contradicting one another, but from the other hand connecting. “Cinnamon, has similar carbon structure to any dried plant life, meaning, that there might be a connection to a certain radiations, or smell particle levels, or perhaps even… Taste…” He then looked down, quite unsure himself. “What… what if it is both, A… A living entity and an anomaly?”

She makes note of this. “I was just thinking that. What if these cloud just… Likes cinnamon. Being /maybe/ sentient. With this new information, I say we get dressed up and go pay these…cultist to the Golden Plague a visit. See if maybe there is more information to gleam. It seems that the normal subset of experiments to perform where already done.” She didn’t like the idea of going anywhere without this suit, I guess covered in cinnamon. She made sure to work that into the fabricator.

“Madam, if you have words to speak, please use them? We are not beasts, but sentient creatures with WORDS and LANGUAGE.” Possi waggled a disapproving finger at Lily, but, her eyes were turned to the screen to watch what information they could offer. “AHA! Cinnamon was used by ancient peoples in embalming! Probably just for the smell, however. Useless knowledge, however, as it just tells us that cinnamon must have some kind of ‘mystic’ quality that acts as a ward or protective amulet.” Possi had no patience to fool about with such things.

More information: There are beings known as the Soulless, who are immune to the clouds effect. These creatures emerged on Hellifyno 7 years ago, after the Void Apocalypse, and their very nature, having no soul, caused a war of the gods against them, that eventually led to the rise of the god king Plainview. The Soulless have since vanished into lore, but one named Patch, emerged from the death cloud after it was first discovered. And after several weeks, he took another, Alysha, to become a Soulless and sacrifice her afterlife for the strange forbidden powers of this lost and new found race. These are the beings who walk the golden lands of despair, these few beings are the ones who know the secrets of the plague. But this is information, they do not share.

Spice sort of kings. This was hard, Christopher wasn’t good at such subjects, but so far, he thought to himself. Magic usually had a caster, meaning if the cloud was magic, that reacted to such strange rules, there must be someone behind it. But so far, it didn’t seem like it. His guess was so far the best he could manage. but why? Why was it here, and why did it allow cinnamon to pass it, one thing is for sure. “T… that does give us idea of covering ou… our research parties in… in cinnamon…” He couldn’t believe how foolish it sounded. But thus far, he wondered. if indeed was a living entity, even a microbiome, perhaps they could establish a contact of sorts with it?

“If it is not the NEUTRALIZING agent… at best, we can coat things with it for protection. Unless we just… construct a giant scoop, scoop up the cloud, and then FLING it in the direction of some other world with particularly cranky, foul-mouthed, and violent people at a speed close to the speed of light.” She took off her goggles for a moment, rubbing the bridge of her nose. “And beings with no ‘mystic essence’ but still possessing mind of their own? SIMILARLY… useless. They are immune, but are NOT neutralizing agents! And they would just make a terrible substance for constructing a giant scooper.”

There it was again with the strange concepts. Soul. What was the connection to cinnamon and being soulless. Think, Christopher, think.

The screen flashes information on: Cinnamon (/?s?n?m?n/ SIN-?-m?n) is a spice obtained from the inner bark of several tree species from the genus Cinnamomum. Cinnamon is used mainly as an aromatic condiment and flavouring additive in a wide variety of cuisines, sweet and savoury dishes, breakfast cereals, snackfoods, tea and traditional foods by mostly mortal organic beings. The aroma and flavour of cinnamon derive from its essential oil and principal component, cinnamaldehyde, as well as numerous other constituents, including eugenol. The term “cinnamon” also is used to describe its mid-brown colour. Cinnamon is the name for several species of trees and the commercial spice products that some of them produce. All are members of the genus Cinnamomum in the family Lauraceae.[1] Only a few Cinnamomum species are grown commercially for spice. Some fae cultivate cinnamon for its psychotropic effects. Cinnamomum verum is sometimes considered to be “true cinnamon”, but most cinnamon in international commerce is derived from related species, also referred to as “cassia”.[2][3] In 2016, Indonesia and China produced 75% of the world’s supply of cinnamon.Etymology: The English word “cinnamon”, attested in English since the fifteenth century, derives from the Greek ?????????? kinnám?mon (later kínnamon), via Latin and medieval French intermediate forms. The Greek was borrowed from a Phoenician word, which was similar to the related Hebrew ?????? (qinamon).[4] The name “cassia”, first recorded in English around AD 1000, was borrowed via Latin and ultimately derives from Hebrew q’ts???h, a form of the verb q?tsa?, “to strip off bark”.[5]

All this time the boy was standing up, never once thinking of taking a seat. He shook to his bone, but he felt responsible to push himself to the limit. He looked at Lily. Perhaps she had the answer they sought. It was then, when the boy noticed, that he had been talking too much. He finally sat down and almost fainted from the stress. The talks were pushed far, and at this point he shakily breathed in. So it was connected to a cult. It was a summoned. Or so everyone assumed. Silently the boy read the slides on the screens, whilst silently listening to other scientists.

“He’s just an author from Earth, wrote some literature. Not important right now. But all of the evidence points to this cloud being ‘Fae’ in nature. So it would make sense to bring in either a ‘Fae’ or a specialist on the subject.” Kurai fell right in line with the other scientist, when things started to develop into the realm of the Midnight court, her knowledge when from science to lore; and every little of it in fact as she enjoyed more empirical fact. But she continued. “So we have these cultist in Ar’Elis, and this court to investigate then. So, miss… what’s your name?” She asked Lily, the woman with a direction it seems.

It was now apparent, how small the fourteen year old boy was. He hoped that he could be of use, but when things really counted, he didn’t know a thing. Looking and rereading the description of cinnamon, he eyed the words ‘Greek’ and ‘Latin’. To strip off bark. Psychotropic effects. Psychotropic. Soulless creatures. The boy looked down at his notes. The light is destroyed. everything is destroyed, yet soulless entities and cinnamon coverage gains a passage, with no exception. Why… Psychotropic effects. Could it be, that only mindless could enter, but photons had no mind, this didn’t stick together. The boy was in an incredibly deep thought. ‘To strip off a bark.’ The boy fiddled with his thumbs, slightly out of it. Fae, Psychotropic, and soulless. Did Fae’s have souls, the must have, if they were destroyed without cinnamon, so was cinnamon able to hide a presence of a soul, by delivering a certain state of mind?

“Well met, Lady Duskore.” She took that name for the record, then to Sassy. “What is the Hedge? Or these other courts. The only information I have on Fae is lore and whispers, I don’t know what applies here.” In the meanwhile, her suit was being covered in both cinnamon and cinnamon oil.

“Is there certifiable proof of an investigation that these ‘cultists’ are the source of this within a reasonably doubt? I will NOT be part of some misguided witch-hunt for superstitious fools that just so happen to believe in tomfoolery that might, at a surface level, indicate that they at the very least approval of the chaos this cloud is causing.” Possibility wasn’t one for detective work regarding people. Death clouds were far more interesting than magicians in dark robes hiding in basements and being edgy. “If you so wish to, go forth and indulge yourselves… I think I will just conduct ACTUAL scientific inquiries and test out a few hypotheses.”

He flipped the page backwards. Indeed all the theories treating the cloud as if it was something without consciousness and an absurd set of rules didn’t add up. Could this entity be acting as a new from of order? But then, how did it spur? A sweat dripped from Christopher’s forehead. Soulless. A granted passage. There were so little variables, to make a concrete statement. The gray eyes were flashing over the page after page. Soulless. Soulless beings, yet still living. Creatures have been described as abominable and crude. Coming from dark reaches. Cinnamon and Fae. Ancient rituals, he vaguely knew. They mostly were made to “connect” to something. Become accepted. But could it mean, that cinnamon could be fruitless for them? If the cinnamon had psychotropic effect, perhaps if the don’t reach the state, the wearer will die either way. “Wait!” the boy shouted.

She nodded towards Chris. “For personal safety, I agree. But it might be needed.” Then back to Lily. “Oh… Wow.

10/21 03:22PM
The boy slowly but seemingly with shame stood up, somewhat unsure at this point if what he was saying was correct, but this as a hypothesis after all. And if this could save great minds from a certain death, he had to try and force the talks forth to come to a more stable theory. A one that will have the highest percentage of success. He looked up, seeing that the attention was averted. Was his warning heeded. The boy looked down at his feet. What could he do at this point. He had made two wrong statements, and then contradicted himself already. Maybe he already made himself untrustworthy at this point. hearing Lily’s statement, the boy’s eyes narrowed, perhaps he was partially right. Certain items, soulless items, that were recognized as living beings, but without a “soul”. A psychotropic state of mind. He might be far off, but thus far he hoped that at least no one would die. This was Christopher’s main concern. Psychotropic effects. A report on Kida did mention the goddess going insane. Perhaps it did have a connection to a mental state. This lead to some inhumane ideas that Christopher hated. But that would contradict the strong presence of cinnamon once more. Maybe it simply was the safest way. That couldn’t be it.

The pieces were here, they just weren’t looking right. Sending a fruitless expedition would mean nothing to them, if they don’t get the results, and with each passing moment more and more people were threatening to die by it. He looked at Sassy, as his eyes slowly teared up. “I am sorry, miss Sassy. I just aren’t smart enough. I… I try, but I cannot… I cannot do the calculation.” The fourteen year old boy, rose his forearm to hide his eyes. People were dying. The plague was spreading, and so far, he had only shatters of puzzle pieces, that made, yet didn’t make any sense.

Seeing that his act was seen by others, the boy quickly wiped his eyes. He didn’t have the liberty to break now. He gave a nod towards Sassy, and calmly sat down, preparing another proposition, another dissertation, that hopefully will lead them closer to their common goal. Indeed they were a team. They had to listen to one another. Collect the data and press forth theories. This was the frontier science, and Christopher was invited to help. He sniffed his nose, as the swollen eyes showed dedication. He started inscribing once more. This time without shaking. This time with more confidence. So what if it seemed crazy, if they don’t think of something, they will be doomed.

^Sass gives Chris a peck on top of his head like a mom would her son before letting him go to do some work. She beams at him proudly. She can see him as a good scientist. So proud of him^
 
Christopher Page
 
10/21 03:32PM
They boy was writing down calculations, theories, phrases and explanations of meanings. If he couldn’t fight, he could think. Think, Christopher. Think! He gave a light warm glance at Sassy and spoke. “Miss Sassy, will you help me putting the pieces together for next hypothesis?”
 
Sasuke “Sassy” Firemist
 
10/21 03:32PM
Sass: Sure. I’ll be more than happy to help.

“I’ll go with you, Lily.”

” Think about it, who stands to gain the most form this. If all life is wipped out” titles my head”so we have soulless beings, pissed off fae, and a death cloud that likes negative energy.”
 
Kurai and EIRA
 
10/21 03:35PM
“Lady Duskore*”
 
Christopher Page
 
10/21 03:36PM
The boy pulled closer to Sassy, as he pointed his pen at the conspectus of cinnamon. “So I was thinking.” He spoke silently to her. “Well, I do not know a lot about soul or magic, but the psychotropic element of the substance, the cinnamon on faes, and the addition of soulless creatures made me think.” He drew a line, representing the horizon of the cloud. “Goddess Kida wasn’t immediate to die from the cloud, but her mental state was strongly affected, as far as the intel shows. Psychotropic effect causes certain absence of mind, meaning that these drug-like effects near the mind towards the state of a soulless, inanimate object. Lily’s subject on Alysha’s arm, was also most intriguing. This weaves a certain idea.”
 
Sasuke “Sassy” Firemist
 
10/21 03:37PM
^Sass is pulled closer and she looks where he is pointing to. She nods to Chris as she listens^ What’s this idea? ^The Uncle leans in too since Sass is far to stupid, in his honest opinion, to understand^
 
Lily Ann Black (Lady W.Duskore)
 
10/21 03:37PM
raises a brow..”are you not needed here to organize the others not that i would not mind the company but given who i am and what i am respocable for i can not guarantee a welcome reception where ever i may travel
 
responsible*
 
glances to chris..”well given people are driven mad it may have something to do with the mind how strong one is those strong minded can resist those who arent mutate and die?”
 
Kurai and EIRA
 
10/21 03:41PM
“Believe it or not, I do my best investigative science on the ground. We can talk here until we’re blue in the face, but I need more information then what I can gather here.” She was going to go make a soulless clone and make it walk into the cloud, but she’d do that when she returned. Right now, there could be more information from the cultist. “At the very least, would you take EIRA with you?” With her name being said, that android came back. ‘Miss Kurai, the portal generator remains on standby, as well as the fabrication room.’ It spoke in a weird, half synthetic, half organic voice.

“The strong are driven insane , and the weak are culled apparently. “
 
Christopher Page
 
10/21 03:42PM
“I might be wrong in a strong manner” The boy spoke with his British accent. The voice showed high level of seriousness. “That this substance does not act like a sickness, nor a poison. But more like a filter that differs beings that are able to think and have certain ambitions, towards beings that are wandering aimlessly. The variables might be: Purpose. Dream. Hope. Aim. Goal. Idea. Thought. Wanderlust. And so forth. Anything that we perceive as soul, but that could be lost by a certain, unknown standard. If we unlock this standard, we might just be able to find the next step to combat this phenomenon. Look here.” He pointed Sassy’s attention towards the event horizon. The fact that inanimate particles, that do not seem to hold non human resemblance have been destroyed as far as the indicators show. Nymphs covered in cinnamon, soulless entities, Alysha’s arm. Kida. They all had features, that resembled life. But they all lacked a certain quality, that atleast postponed their expiration.”
 
Sasuke “Sassy” Firemist
 
10/21 03:42PM
Uncle: Unless, you’re from the Malkavian clan or a fae.
 
Uncle: Malkavians are vampires whose founder went insane. Anyone sired under this clan will be driven to madness instantly. Incurable madness, mind you.
 
Uncle: Faes are born this way.
 
Uncle: Malkav isn’t recognized under the Camarilla faction.
 
^Sass nods as she continues to listen^ So if we were to put a teddy bear in it, it would poof? If we were to put a car in it, it would stay?
 
Kurai and EIRA
 
10/21 03:47PM
“Life. You might be on to something.” She pulled up a fact on the screen. “Energy from Gaia, who is related to life, happens to have a strong effect on this thing too. If only to confirm your thoughts, Chris.”
 
Lily Ann Black (Lady W.Duskore)
 
10/21 03:48PM
smiles glancing at the android..”i shall take her if you can spare her if you wish eyes on the ground as such and you have the professor here to try her experiments and ideas out so at least we can get the ball rolling and the others here are forming their own avenues of investigation but time is short my city mad i must make some moves to repent-” she opens the door to lead out of the auditorium-
 
Isabo amethyst Hendrix
 
10/21 03:49PM
Purses my lips listening to uncle and so then if that faction of vampires and fae. “What about hellyifno it’s more primitive state” talking to myself tapping my chin”a return to how things used to be…”
 
Christopher Page
 
10/21 03:50PM
“exactly the opposite, miss sassy. Teddy bear possesses living features, but lacks soul, this it is granted the passage, however a car would be destroyed, since it has no indication of life, and is seen as extraterrestrial object. A possible threat maybe?” He then looked at Kurai. “Of course. Soul! Gaia!” the boy almost jumped! “Do forgive me if I am a liar, but this thing might not have a problem with us. It just might have a reaction to Gaia-connected entities!” He looked down. “But the question is, how does cinnamon and madness disconnect one from Gaia, no, that just doesn’t make sense…”
 
Lily Ann Black (Lady W.Duskore)
 
10/21 03:50PM
she flinches glances back once more..”ah but as we found with the sword weilded by the woman gwen…you may not like the affect it has on the cloud and given i used Hyarian on it..it may react ..retaliate even”
 
Sasuke “Sassy” Firemist
 
10/21 03:50PM
Sass: I’ve heard a rumor from my Cobweb about how cinnamon makes faes high…
 
Kurai and EIRA
 
10/21 03:51PM
EIRA follows dutifully behind Lily as she departed. “EIRA, make sure you listen to her, do what you can to help.” The redhead ordered the bot, then went back to listen to what was happening. “Wait, YES”
 
“The cinnamon is to confused the cloud! Get it high so it doesnt destroy it!”
 
“If it is Fae in origin…”
 
Christopher Page
 
10/21 03:53PM
Christopher looked down at his feet, lowering his journal. As far as they pressed there were many dead ends. So many obstacles. Building a robot compared to this was a child’s game. “So I suppose the question is, what is the standard, that the cloud sees? What is the certain thing, that it deems… “Worthy”?”
 
Sasuke “Sassy” Firemist
 
10/21 03:53PM
Sass: I am doubting a fae could of caused this. I mean, we aren’t exactly soulless, last I checked…
 
Uncle: Faes aren’t logical, Ms 3,000 plus video Queen…
 
^She giggles a bit as she blushes slightly. She sinks in her seat^
 
Christopher Page
 
10/21 03:56PM
Slowly the boy sat down as well. His gray eyes looked at the floor. It was almost as if they were on the tip of the line, they just had to jump it. What was the missing link? The one number. The final variable? There was worry and sadness in boy’s eyes. All the hard work does not matter, if they do not complete this theory. If they do not shape it, so that it can be properly tested.
 
Isabo amethyst Hendrix
 
10/21 03:57PM
” so this thing got issues with vampires and Kida …?”
 
Kurai and EIRA
 
10/21 03:57PM
Kurai looked around, most of the scientists have left now, save for the ones still talking. “Well how about this. We all get something to eat! I’ve found that thinking totally makes me really hungry, and I think better when I’m not so..” And with that, she headed towards the table with refreshments on it.
 
Sasuke “Sassy” Firemist
 
10/21 03:57PM
Sass: Possibly since majority of vampires are soulless.
 
Christopher Page
 
10/21 03:59PM
The boy looked at Iso, and glanced won. “I tend to think that it might be the opposite. The soulless beings are not killed.” The boy stood up. “It has issues with us.” He followed Kurai, mostly because it might seem polite.
 
Sasuke “Sassy” Firemist
 
10/21 03:59PM
Sass: Oooh! Oooh! Chris! Get me some cookies, please! ^She calls to him^
 
Uncle: You are an embarrassment to us all, Sasuke. ^He smacks her right upside the head. She yelps in surprise and rubs her head^
 
Kurai and EIRA
 
10/21 04:00PM
She offered the boy to take his pick from the table. Fruits, sandwiches, snacks of all sorts, along with water, juices and sodas available for all. Kurai piled on some of the foods onto a tray and brought it back to the table.
 
Christopher Page
 
10/21 04:01PM
Snapping out, he noticed that he might appear grumpy, and being grumpy was not a good thing to do. He looked at Sassy. “Yes, miss Sassy!” then picked up a phase, to not be left behind by Kurai. Standing by the table, the boy began collecting Sassy’s dish. For himself, well… He didn’t feel that hungry. For a moment he lingered for a moment, before speaking to Kurai. “Miss Kurai, can I ask you something odd?”
 
Isabo amethyst Hendrix
 
10/21 04:01PM
“That’s only thralls and lesser vampires ..” but that made a lot of scene …so some fae has gone off there nut…and decided to kill everything ..great just what we needed …Nilolist Fae …good grief .
 
Sasuke “Sassy” Firemist
 
10/21 04:03PM
Uncle: Actually, no. The 12 clans are soulless. Only Lasombra cannot be seen by a mirror or modern day technology. I am old enough to have been around when these clans are made. This would include the Giovannis as well.
 
Kurai and EIRA
 
10/21 04:04PM
“Sure, what’s up?” The redhead responded to Chris.
 
Christopher Page
 
10/21 04:04PM
Some remembrance came to him, as the gray eyes sadly looked at Sassy’s plate, filled with cookies. Certain memories came to mind. Certain happenings, and turns of events. Lingering to answer her, the white haired boy did not look at Kurai. His view was turned towards the plate, he had picked for Sassy. For a fourteen year old boy, he seemed too mature. Too pained. Too tarnished, one would even say. Maybe it was this event, or a certain subject that came to him. The boy answered after a brief silence. “What exactly is soul?”
 
Isabo amethyst Hendrix
 
10/21 04:07PM
I looked over at Sassy uncle an arched a brow “oi va..”great more things to stir into the pot of frick all .
 
Kurai and EIRA
 
10/21 04:08PM
“That… is a complicated question, and scientifically no true answer. Some see it as the mind, what’s responsibility for our personality, consciousness and decisions. Others see it as another entity, of pure energy that living beings need to function. By definition it is the immaterial part of a person, regarded as immortal.” She tried to respond.
 
Sasuke “Sassy” Firemist
 
10/21 04:08PM
Uncle: I wouldn’t worry about them for a while, Isabo, as everyone has crawled back to their tombs, lick their wounds, and plot for the next series of mind games. It’s all apart of vampire culture to play mind games.
 
Isabo amethyst Hendrix
 
10/21 04:10PM
“I guess I missed the memo…” smirks at uncle comment .
 
Christopher Page
 
10/21 04:10PM
The chocolate smell of the cookies were filling the area, almost in a mocking manner towards the bitter sensation coming from Christopher. At this point, he had cried his eyes dry. He had lost the fear. His only weapon was his thoughts. His only purpose, to help the people. Eyeing the table he listened to the redhead. “But, why would analysis of soulless entities is so vague, then? What differs them from us. They also make decisions. They also have personality, and certain set of actions. Is a bird soulless then? What sets the line, if we can deem something with such binary system?”
 
Sasuke “Sassy” Firemist
 
10/21 04:11PM
Uncle: Probably. ^He sighs^ I guess it’s time to bulk up and join the fun… Eventually…
 
Kurai and EIRA
 
10/21 04:12PM
“Anyways. Sassy, let me know when you are ready to contact this Hedge grove and we can see if can get more information from Fae.” She stood up and looked over to Chris with a shrug. “Not all magic has logic. But it mostly has reason. I try not to focus on these questions, you won’t find an easy answer accepted by everyone. But whatever this cloud is, or whoever is controlling it, seems to have some kind of line; and we should figure that out. Hopefully when we pay these Fae a visit.”
 
Isabo amethyst Hendrix
 
10/21 04:12PM
“Yeah, my clan was to busy to playing war games, to play mind games with anyone.” shrugged at uncle
 
Sasuke “Sassy” Firemist
 
10/21 04:12PM
^Sass’ eyes goes wide at Kurai^ What?…
 
Sass: We’re goin’ to the Hedge?…
 
^She then gasps loudly. Before the Uncle could even say a thing, she grabs him and she shakes him^ UNCLEEEE! WE’RE GOING TO THE HEDGE!
 
Kurai and EIRA
 
10/21 04:14PM
“This seems to be the most logical course of action for further research.”
 
Christopher Page
 
10/21 04:14PM
He did not pick food for himself. He just didn’t feel right to do so. Maybe it was his idealistic mindset, but couldn’t eat, whilst he knew, that such menace was out there, and it was up to them to stop it. The boy gave a slight nod. “Yes, miss Kurai.” He said with a bitter tone, and walked towards sassy giving her the plate of cookies. At this point, he could only observe. Learn. Collect data. Indeed, with no variables, there was no answer, but at least they have come to an agreement as a group.
 
Sasuke “Sassy” Firemist
 
10/21 04:15PM
^Then, he forms into his inky black cloud to let her fall through. She dangles over the arm of the chair as she blinks. He reforms a bit with a huff and a glare^ Jesus fucking Christ. I heard your loud mouth for the first time! ^He them looks over to Kurai^ You’ll be speaking to me directly then. Sasuke has a few things to tie down first. ^She pushes herself up and she takes a cookie. She begins to nom on the cookie. She looks over to Chris and she holds her hand out to him^
 
Christopher Page
 
10/21 04:18PM
The boy slightly blinked, placed the cookie tray on the nearby chair and outreached towards her. His slightly pale face was riddled with slight confusion. Did he do something bad? Was this the point, where he messed up?
 
Sasuke “Sassy” Firemist
 
10/21 04:18PM
Sass: Aren’t you gonna give me a high five? ^She smiles at him^
 
Kurai and EIRA
 
10/21 04:19PM
“Well, I have to go, but feel free to use the room as long as you want. Just close the door on the way out. Thank you all for coming, and I hope to see you all soon.” And with that, she bowed her head lightly to the people around the table and departed.
 
Sasuke “Sassy” Firemist
 
10/21 04:19PM
Sass: Bye!
 
Christopher Page
 
10/21 04:21PM
“Ah um.” He did not know why, but he dared not to disobey Sassy’s request. He rose his hand, and gave her a weak, but well sounded high five. To the boy, this seemed inappropriate. The boy then turned towards Kura, and gave a bow. “Thank you for your hard work!” He said loudly, and looked at Sassy. “Perhaps we should take our leave as well so that we can prepare materials for the next meet up, Miss Sassy?”
 
Sasuke “Sassy” Firemist
 
10/21 04:22PM
Sass: Ooh! Good idea. ^She picks up her cookies before standing up. She continues to munch on them^ I cannot tell you how proud I am of you. You’ve done splendidly!
 
Sasuke “Sassy” Firemist
 
10/21 04:22PM
Uncle: Despite your stuttering…
 
Christopher Page
 
10/21 04:25PM
“Thank you.” The boy’s voice wasn’t celebratory at all. The gray eyes looked down, as he put on his scarf, hat and the jacked, followed by his back. The note book and the pen were placed in the shoulder bag. How could he be happy? So far they have done so little. He could imagine how many children are losing their parents, how many families losing their loved ones, as this cloud continues being. It was a horrible thing. But they were only beings. And all they could do now, was to gather what they have learned now, and press on. This was a battle on a whole new level. The frontier science. And Christopher, well… he was the youngest of them all. A child prodigy in a sense.
 
Sasuke “Sassy” Firemist
 
10/21 04:27PM
^She grabs the Cloak that her Uncle pulls out of his pocket. She puts it on and pulls the hood over her head. She puts her hand on Chris’ shoulder with a smile^ You gave out what you could. You’ve done well. We just have tons of work to do. Say, you could come with me to see the Hedge.
 
Christopher Page
 
10/21 04:30PM
The boy gave a slow nod. “I hope I will be of use. Of course I would love to, Miss sassy.” the boy then was ready to follow Sassy towards the location, where they resided. After all, Christopher was under her wing.
 
Sasuke “Sassy” Firemist
 
10/21 04:31PM
Oh, there’s so much my Uncle and I have to tell you about it.. ^As they go^
 
Christopher Page
 
10/21 04:35PM
The boy did remember Kurai’s request, and turned the key of the hall. “Forgive me sassy, I will be right back!” He ran down towards the booth where the guard was sitting, giving him the key. “This is the key to conference hall, under the name of Kurai… Kurai Yuki Kishimoto!” He remembered her description in the invitation. The guard nodded, and the boy ran back to Sassy. And so they walked, as the boy learned about this new place, they called “Hedge”.
 
Sasuke “Sassy” Firemist
 
10/21 04:36PM
^Sass does pause to wait for him. She then smiles at him before walking off with him^
 
Professor Possibility
 
10/22 06:35PM
There was a thing in modern rocket science that Possibility just didn’t understand… Why did they always focus on using big, cumbersome fuel sources? It was always some kind of chemical reaction or antimatter or some other kind of physics-breaking substance. Possibility, of course, considered herself a pioneer in such things, but were they cheap? No. They were not. Which is why she was trying to develop less expensive, less conventional, more imaginative ways to power her rockets for these next few experiments! This ‘Golden Plague’ cloud… she wanted to crack the puzzle, but, of course, it seemed that it was far too deadly to expose herself to. And rather than lower herself to using a food spice as a protective barrier, she was electing to find alternative methods of exploring the inside of the cloud! Her Tiny Remote Individual, or TRI, would be her first experiment. After loading a small rocket, only the size of a large house, with her payload, plus a portable, ready to build laboratory that she hoped could withstand the destructive nature of the cloud, Possibility stepped back and rubbed her hands together in joy. “MWAHAHAHAHA! AND NOW… ONE SMALL EXPLOSION FOR ME…. ONE GIANT LEAP FOR ME AS WELL!” Standing behind a blast shield and her makeshift control panel, Possi fiddled with a few levers and gauges, and then emptied another can of overly potent energy drink down a hose that led into the rocket. Indeed, the cheap, affordable fuel that Possibility had decided to use as a powersource for her rocket was indeed a very gross-tasting mixture of caffeine, taurine, various sugars, vitamins, and spring water. After capping off the hose, all she had to do… was SMACK THE BIG RED BUTTON IN FRONT OF HER! “MWAHAHAHA! FLY, MY PRETTY, FLY!”
 
The rocket went flyyyyyyying up into the sky after spitting out a slightly sugary flame from its base, and flew rather straight and true in the direction of the nearest concentration of the Golden Plague. She’d have to check later to see if it made it safely, but she felt the trajectory was right… And she was rarely wrong. But, failure was always a possibility…
