Maid Franny
 
02:01PM
Portals opened up as scheduled to allow those wanting to attend the Peace Summit. On the other side, those that walked through would find a large auditorium, a stage at the center of it all with a single podium and microphone. On the front of it, a representation of the globe of the planet in holographic form, showing the planet slowly and majestically turn, wreathed in the fluttering wings of doves and olive branches. Each seat bore a name, each marking where those that attended could seat themselves. Standing by the portal was a rather nervous looking maid who held her head low in respect. Other similarly dressed women, as well as men dressed in fine suits, waited at each row with trays of refreshments. But the one by the portal was the one that spoke up in greeting. “Hello. Welcome. Hello. Welcome. Uhm… Please, if you’d like, take your seats as you’d please. We will be beginning shortly, as soon as the coordinator is prepared to, uhm… start things off. Any, erhm, questions you may have, I am ready to answer them as best I can! My name is Franny.”
 
Spc. Allison Greene
 
02:05PM
Specialist Allison Greene of Olde Watch stepped through a portal to this function. Wearing her dress blue formal armor, with her Badge and ID painted on the side of her chest. She wore her duty belt as well. Quietly she would slowly patrol, getting a feel for the crowd.
 
Leonite Lunareyes
 
02:07PM
-It cannot be said that it’s not easy to forget the visage of a Lunareyes werebear in homid form for they are massive beings with bulky shoulders and chiseled as if from live stone. Today’s just so happens to be tattooed from the neck down, wearing a pair of thinly veiled shorts and a pair of loosely fitted tennis shoes without socks. Leonite Lunareyes stalks through the portal from an undisclosed location, brown eyes intermingling with the patrons already here. Grizzled and rather solemn, he walks with an ever present limp denoting an injury either in the recent months or a long time ago. He eagerly makes his way to his seat, the one that is marked down for the leadership of the Steelheart colony-
 
Alysha Schönherr
 
02:08PM
Peace summit? Maybe this was a chance to start correcting some of the things she had done. To start to make an apology? Or maybe she’ll be cleft in twain again…She didn’t know that all of the things she had done were wrong, but before her death some time ago now, anthem had begin to teach her of some of her wrongdoings, and maybe a little bit of that got through to the unstable little warlord. No armour for the child, other than her mechanical hands, and her artificial left leg, all of which whirr with her movements, frantic shuffling, muffled panic, silent screaming and such, as anxiety claws away at the soulless’ girl’s tormented, battered, and near-destroyed mind. Must be odd to see a 10 year old at a peace summit. especially /this/ ten year old.
 
Aero
 
02:09PM
Through a portal would step the president of the ALL Corporation and a couple cat women. He wore his black suit and blue tie. His silver cane in hand. His single black feathered wing folded tightly behind him. The two cat girls are wearing a black and blue themed button ups with pencil skirts. One of them had a notepad with pen. And the three of them move for the seat marked for the ALL Corporation.
 
Zaire
 
02:12PM
The portal is always the same for her. Swirling and golden, bits of fire flicking about. And she steps through, dressed in simple enough black jeans with a matching T-shirt. She has her black hair over her left eye, scars peeking out from under her bangs. A pair of canine ears flick about and her tail hangs behind her. Arms are folded as she steps through, and the portal closes. She’s silent, observing what she can, even if a low growl ripples from her at the sight of a certain angel.
 
Church of Duality
 
02:12PM
Not in an of the assigned seat but seated in the audience section was a small group of black and white robed individuals. Watching.
 
Maid Franny
 
02:15PM
Franny stood to the side, waving and trying to speak up to those that walked past her. “Oh, uhm, hello!” Leonite Lunareyes caught her eye, looking rather… striking, but all the same, he’d find his name and seat easily. The child, Alysha Schonherr, would find her seat was closer to the front of the auditorium stage. “Many greetings, little miss! Please, right this way…” She gestured to the gentle slope that would take Alysha to her seat. Next, she put eyes on Aero, President of ALL Corp. “Hello, Mister Aero! Your seat is that way, I believe!” A cheerful smile. There was also Zaire as well, and she’d find a seat for herself as well. Even the Church of Duality, spectators as they were, would find their arrival had been anticipated, as a manservant came by with a tray of refreshments for them.
 
After a moment, Franny would speak into a small microphone on her wrist, broadcasting her soft, meek voice across the auditorium. “We will, uhm, be starting proceedings for the summit in just another moment! The coordinator is still, erhm… getting herself ready.”
 
Alysha Schönherr
 
02:18PM
She’d take her seat, a slight grumble to her as she was called ‘little miss’. There is a nervous tapping of metal fingers against her lap as she leans forward, tensing anxiously… from what she hears, these things don’t usually end well… “And who that?” the girl asked, in regards to this ‘coordinator’… there is no smile on her grievously scarred and battered face. Only a restrained hatred, in an attempt to remain civil, she tried to keep it down. Seemed to be going well, at least.
 
Maid Franny
 
02:20PM
“All will be revealed, I assure you! You’ve no need to be worried, even if you are!” Franny smiled at the child kindly, but seemed… nervous. Very nervous.
 
Maid Franny
 
02:26PM
After several more moments passed, Franny spoke into her wrist microphone again. “Ahem… Well… we are ready to begin proceedings, I believe. Everyone just, uhm… remain seated, and I will… go, uhm… f-fetch the coordinator.” And so the maid walked towards the stage, passing the podium to go to a small door off to the side… only to pause and then turn around.
 
Spc. Allison Greene
 
02:28PM
The Specialist just causally watched and waited, just kind of making sure that there was no violence to ensue like it did before. She eyed all of the new comers, then spied Aly. Her chocolate eyes squinted in at her, then took a seat.
 
Aero
 
02:28PM
Aero was resting his arms on the desk before him and had his eyes wandering. Zaire. The werebear. The little red head. Eyebrow twitch. Oh. And the older watch representative. He then blinks as the announcement is made. And his eyes shift to the front stage. The cat girl now prepares to transcribe the meeting.
 
Gen. Franziska Krieger, Olde Watch
 
02:29PM
Her head held high, her back straight, the ‘Maid’ walked up to the podium, and her servant’s uniform seemed to vanish right in front of their eyes, clearly some kind of holographic projection over a sterling white uniform full of medals… and also a very striking dark iron pin in the symbol of a skull. “You’ll have to pardon a bit of trickery on my part. I wanted to oversee the entry of all parties before I revealed myself. None of you know me, but some of you are very familiar with my family.”
 
“My name is Franziska Krieger.”
 
Echo
 
02:30PM
::Echo, having only just learned about this meeting, comes in with her usual grace and perfect posture, head held high and proud::
 
Weary Wanderer
 
02:30PM
<BLINKS, appearing in an empty spot near the back>
 
Alysha Schönherr
 
02:31PM
Alysha shifted some in her seat, eyes squinting some. How many of those were there… The soulless girl would continue the nervous tapping of her fingers at the same pace as before.
 
Micah Wintersong
 
02:31PM
*Micah appeared in a seat with that whiskey smile, her two little kittens running around her bare feet. She brought her bottle to her lips for a pull, then leaned back to listen and watch*
 
Echo
 
02:32PM
::seeing Weary appear, Echo goes to join her:: I’ve seen that man before, remind me who he is.”
 
Spc. Allison Greene
 
02:33PM
The Specialist smirked a bit as the ‘Maid’ revealed herself, just sitting and listening to the Kreiger speak.
 
Weary Wanderer
 
02:33PM
<tilts her head a little in greetings to Echo than smiles thinly< Krieger
 
Gen. Franziska Krieger, Olde Watch
 
02:33PM
“I welcome all that are here and are arriving to the Peace Summit of Hellifyno. There have been… several of these before. Meetings between prominent leaders of various factions, important figures in the various city-states that dominate the conversation of our planet. In the history of Hellifyno, the family of Krieger have been loyal to the city of Olde Watch. My cousins, Wilhelm, Meinolf, Heinrick… They were and are amazing figures in our history, and I am proud to call them my blood. But, we are here today to address several issues.”
 
Echo
 
02:34PM
Krieger! ::her voice loud enough to draw attention from those around her. She lowers the sound again:: What in Hades is HE doing leading a meeting? Something here is not right.
 
Weary Wanderer
 
02:36PM
<her gold eyes flare a moment and she shrugs lightly< we’ll find out.
 
Gen. Franziska Krieger, Olde Watch
 
02:37PM
“The first of which being the complete cessation of all hostilities between Olde Watch and other city-states of Hellifyno. As some of you are aware, our Senate was infiltrated and taken over by those that served the dark and dangerous power of the Void. They would have doomed all of us to death and destruction. Over the course of the past few years and months, conflict has been the default state of our world, as various parties vie for power and influence over various forces, or merely try to preserve themselves. Olde Watch found herself compromised, her values twisted and abused, and forced into a dangerous idea that to save ourselves, we had to strike first at those that threatened us.”
 
Echo
 
02:38PM
::whispers:: That’s not what I heard, but I got it mostly secondhand. Is it true?
 
Weary Wanderer
 
02:38PM
..its not..false..
 
Aero
 
02:38PM
He would merely listen for now. Noted being taken by the cat woman behind himself.
 
Alysha Schönherr
 
02:38PM
Alysha grumbles beneath her breath…
 
Gen. Franziska Krieger, Olde Watch
 
02:38PM
“I will make this clear… I do not condone nor will I tolerate the use of excessive magical force to harm the multitudes of innocent people who cannot defend themselves. It will not stand, and it cannot be allowed. But, the idea that we have the right to strip others of their abilities when they are not our enemies, or that we must ostracize all who are not human… it is not the answer.”
 
Weary Wanderer
 
02:39PM
<quietly snickers to herself and listens on>
 
Gen. Franziska Krieger, Olde Watch
 
02:41PM
“Olde Watch is home to more than just humans, even if the majority of our population is. We have a duty to protect them. And this planet, it is our’s as well. We have known no other home, and it is time that we act like better neighbors again. Once, we were a hub of commerce, a center of trade with those that come from other stars, other worlds. With the assistance of those that assisted in the liberation of Olde Watch from those damned infiltrators, we have rebuilt. Our new Senators come from every walk of life, every background, and all known Olde Watch can be a torch among many that will light the way to a better future.”
 
Echo
 
02:42PM
::Echo freezes for a moment, gaping at Krieger. What in the name of all the gods? That was the Slayers’ goal. Did someone else use those tactics while she was away?
 
Tianwu Qiang
 
02:43PM
Qiang was pretty aloof, and focused mainly on his cultivation, his head below much of the politics and conflicts that went on, but he decided to sit in on this for information purposes. With that in mind the monk would appear in a corner somewhere, settling into a crossed legged position and watching in silence. -d-
 
Gen. Franziska Krieger, Olde Watch
 
02:46PM
“That is why, on top of all cessation of hostilities, the government of Olde Watch has a proposal. On top of the official start of the flow of goods and services to and from Olde Watch to other city-states, we also pledge ourselves to leading the way to the defense of our great and wondrous planet of Hellifyno. Our military might will be used to defend all city-states and other planetary colonies in our solar system from threats from beyond our star. Those powers such as the Void, the Abominations, the Slayers… They will not harm us again, not while the Watch stands! Olde Watch will defend the planet, side-by-side, arm-in-arm with all those that have done so much to lead the way. In this way, we hope to extend our gratitude to the service that was done to us by helping us recover our true selves and restoring order to Olde Watch. Let us maintain and enforce order across the solar system! Together!”
 
Weary Wanderer
 
02:47PM
<she tilts her head than speaks up to be heard> And who determines how this military power is utlized and when
 
?
 
Aero
 
02:48PM
“Will we… not only the ALL Corporation but other businesses be able to open stores in Olde Watch territory?” He asks aloud.
 
Echo
 
02:48PM
::trying hard to keep her voice down, she doesn’t entirely succeed, and those within 5 feet of her hear as she bursts out:: I knew it! ::grits her teeth:: He couldn’t conquer the world, so now he wants to take over by oiling his way in.
 
Alysha Schönherr
 
02:49PM
Alysha’s face grows somewhat more stern as this continues. “I DONT THINK HE SHOULD HAVE STORES ANYWHERE!” she let out. just shouting so everyone could hear her, because of her quiet voice.
 
Echo
 
02:50PM
::wonders what Alysha has against Aero – if that’s the “he” she yelled about::
 
Micah Wintersong
 
02:50PM
*Micah brought her bottle up to her lips, a smirk slowly forming on her lips as she lowered it. And now the shouting started. She loved it when peace talks to this turn. ‘Not my world, not my problem’ she thought to herself, a look of amusement shaping her features*
 
Spc. Allison Greene
 
02:51PM
This was the part that she was waiting for, this idea to be projected out to everyone of what Olde Watch wanted. To close the bridge between the city-states. Still she was quiet, listening to what was being said.
 
Kaler Eland
 
02:52PM
*Throughout the talks, one of the many teddies of Twine was standing in for the two most commonly important members of Twine, scribbling all it heard down on a little notepad, watching and listening intently.*
 
Albafica
 
02:53PM
Albafica entered at the inn wearing his golden armor. He was a beautiful man. easy to be confused with a beautiful woman. Still he remained silent. as his blue hair fell over his shoulders towards his back.
 
Gen. Franziska Krieger, Olde Watch
 
02:53PM
A holographic display opened up behind Franziska, giving her a somewhat otherworldly halo around her body of pale blue light. In grand three-dimensional display, the great space-faring vessels of Olde Watch were shown deploying across the solar system. “To protect Planets I, II, Hellifyno, and IV, I present the Inner Watch. Working side-by-side, the Inner Watch will monitor for threats coming our way from known enemies. Any off-planet colony will be sure that if the powers of the Void rain down upon them again, Olde Watch will not let them fight alone. And beyond the asteroid belt, the Far Watch will be there to ensure the same for all other colonies and expeditionary forces that are out there.” Noticing the responses from the crowd, Franziska nodded. “Mister Aero, ALL Corporation will indeed be permitted to do business in the city-state of Olde Watch and its other planetary colonies.” Her eyes, dark as they were, honed in on Echo as well. “I sense your concerns.” She looked to the Weary Wanderer. “And I sense your’s as well. Our military power will ONLY be used to defend, not control. Olde Watch will take no efforts to execute any kind of will on those that are not our own. We will not attack those that belong to any other city-state. We will not enforce our laws on those we protect, either.”
 
Weary Wanderer
 
02:54PM
and how can that be insured?
 
Alysha Schönherr
 
02:56PM
Alysha huffs lightly, the child’s horridly scarred face displaying great annoyance. “Why should you have all the power?” she grumbles lightly.
 
Gen. Franziska Krieger, Olde Watch
 
02:56PM
“Olde Watch has no goals beyond what colonies were already established in month’s past, though there are plans for more in the coming days, as we seek to strengthen our economy with mining and resource gathering.” The holographic display vanished, and Franziska was left by herself, staring out at the people in the auditorium. “And now… we get to the true heart of why Olde Watch has called this summit… Not only do we desire peace… but we desire understanding. And reassurance. There is no undoing the trauma of what was done before. But there is a way to ensure trust… but the methods by which we learn to trust one another will require a leap of faith….”
 
Echo
 
02:57PM
::The woman “senses her concerns.” How nice. How noncommital, too. The more she hears, the more mistrustful she feels::
 
Weary Wanderer
 
02:58PM
<lifts a hand to hide her lips as she listens, her head slightly tilted. She was slightly amused by what she was hearing, after all,, it seemed to her the order in which things were being brought up were a little out of line. but she’ll listen>
 
Leonite Lunareyes
 
02:59PM
-Due to unforeseen tech difficulties, the player has missed much of what has been said thus far but Leonite shifts his weight in his seat, leaning forward as if suddenly showing interest when before he was nothing but than a doll that hadn’t been listening.-
 
Gen. Franziska Krieger, Olde Watch
 
03:00PM
“Here and now, I am calling for an… audit of sorts. Or you can call it an ‘inquisition, if you have a flair for the dramatic. The Senate of Olde Watch is permitting other city-states to investigate the backgrounds of all sitting senators… as well as myself. The Void tainted our previous senators, who controlled my cousin, Heinrick, like a puppet. I will not allow myself to be seen as a puppet, nor do I want another situation where those that give me my orders are compromised by the darkest of evils. So, here and now… I offer myself to you for questioning. BRIEF questioning. And then if there are any of you who have investigators or intelligence gatherers… do what you will. As long as no violence is conducted against me or any Senators in the coming days, weeks, however long you need to monitor and investigate us, there will be no retaliation. BUT… In exchange… this must go both ways. I myself will be investigating each and every one of you as well, to ensure that you are indeed yourselves and not puppets to powers that would wish to unjustly dominate or even destroy us all.”
 
Zaire
 
03:01PM
Zaire’s arms are still folded. “And what about those of us who were targeted by Olde Watch because of the actions of /certain/ others?” Lemon yellow eyes fall on Aero with that statement. “How do we know we’re not going to be targeted again?” The player has missed a good hour of this because her internet was being dumb.
 
Weary Wanderer
 
03:02PM
<she drops her arms slowly and straightens.> you offer this investigation AFTER wanting to place your military all over?
 
Echo
 
03:02PM
::No goals – except complete domination of the solar system, where a fleet is already in place:: Faunshit ::she says aloud – and very unusual it is for her to swear! ::
 
Micah Wintersong
 
03:03PM
*Micah flinched at the word ‘inquisition’, halfway bringing the bottle to her lips for the final pull. The empty bottle refilled itself as she lowered it back into her lap, frowning at she glanced around, as if finally noticing the place for the first time* …the hell did I step into?
 
Leonite Lunareyes
 
03:04PM
-For what felt like centuries, the werebears of the Lunareyes clan have been using their Gaia-given talent of healing to help those in the back ground, NPC’s, mostly, but the heroes and renegades and even some of the villains too. They take no sides, are mostly hidden, and tend to stay out of the world conflicts since it has costed them dearly. Only recently have they taken back their birth lands from the Giovanni and part of him does not want to give into anything Olde Watch related. He growls belatedly within his seat, the bearded man looking more and more bulky by the moment, considering those tattoos make him look so much larger than he is- I reject the idea of anyone being within the Lunareyes’ lands without our express permission and Olde Watch has not warranted such trust in anyone in my opinion.
 
Aero
 
03:04PM
Aero raises his hand “the ALL Corporation will also be able to assist in defending Hellifino and surrounding colonies while also maintaining a balance with Olde Watch to ensure nobody goes too far. We hold nothing against Olde Watch in regards to their standpoints and views on their current place in the world..”
 
Alysha Schönherr
 
03:05PM
“What will you do with the city of void?!” Alysha demanded, in her oh-so intimidating ten year old voice “And will all-corp be punished for the things they did!” she added on, swiftly at the end.
 
Aero
 
03:05PM
“We also have a negative view of the way humans have been treated before and would very much like to assist olde Watch with whatever they need to feel comfortable here on this planet.”
 
Zaire
 
03:06PM
Now, the last part of that statement from Alysha has Zaire nodding. “I agree with the young one, to an extent. Not exactly ALL Corp. But their /leader/ needs to pay for what he’s done.”
 
Kaler Eland
 
03:06PM
*The teddy would move up to the Krieger woman, holding out a note; for it could not talk; which read: “Twine may be happy with an investigation, however a discussion with Lady Kida would be required at some point.” Considering her past history with the Krieger’s at best.*
 
Echo
 
03:07PM
::she glances over at Aero, sad but not surprised. This is a good business deal for him, and though she believes him to be a good man, she knows profit is his middle – or his last – name::
 
Gen. Franziska Krieger, Olde Watch
 
03:07PM
“Miss Zaire, to be completely frank… l don’t care about you. Our previous, corrupted Senate, used methods that were both foolish and fruitless with the sole intent to isolate, alienate, and obliterate all of us. With the cessation of all hostilities… you’re not a person of any interest to us.” Looking to Weary and Echo, Franziska shrugged. “As stated, our forces will only act in the defense of all others. We will not be enforcing any laws. As stated, if you ladies mistrust me… By all means… look into me as much as you wish.” Her dark gaze wandered to Leonite. “If it puts you at ease, Mister Lunareyes… What we know of your people indicates you are no enemies of our’s. We’re merely offering the chance for you to reassure yourselves that we aren’t enemies of your’s.”
 
“The punishment of any parties for what they’ve done in the past is also not our goal. As offenders ourselves, though most of our forces were acting under orders we weren’t aware were sinister in nature, it wouldn’t be… just of us to punish others. You’ll be needing to do that yourselves.”
 
Weary Wanderer
 
03:09PM
<shakes her head a little> I don’t see what makes ALL Corp or Olde Watch the best options for defense of the Entirety of Hellifyno. I can see the usefulness of a unite military of some kind, but that is NOT what you are suggesting.
 
united*
 
I see no reason Olde Watch should have any say over anything or any place beyond its borders, unless its a time of war.
 
Alysha Schönherr
 
03:10PM
Alysha’s stern expression turns to more of a glare. “Still! you say you want the void to be gone! that’s not okay!” she blurts out.
 
Leonite Lunareyes
 
03:10PM
You want to patch things up and show your people have changed? Take action and prove it without such ‘Inquisitions’ and the military inhabiting. -He leans back in his seat again, crossing his burly, tattooed arms over his chest. At the same time, his eyes glow with trepidation as he stares down this ‘Krieger’. Of course, he’s not had to deal with Olde Watch as much but the Lunareyes within Twine have been taking part and helping and it has seemed, every time, that Twine, despite being such a place of healing and worthy of their presence has found itself attacked even if it is with Kida’s oversight. He pauses to look at Weary- A united military group? Run by whom, though? There have been attempts in the past.
 
Weary Wanderer
 
03:11PM
failed attempts because the ruling government systems could not stay in agreement.
 
< she nods at Leonite< but i believe if TRUE Treaties could be made..it could be possible.
 
Echo
 
03:11PM
::now she stands:: You do NOT have my permission to “investigate” me, and if you do so without my permission, I assure you that you will rue the day.
 
Gen. Franziska Krieger, Olde Watch
 
03:12PM
“Olde Watch will cooperate completely with all other military forces in the event of a need to protect our peoples. Any of you with access to military power will merely be expected to work with us, not have us just work for you. But, for the sake of integrity, and to avoid confusion and the chance for rivalry, we do not suggest a ‘united’ military force, merely that we…” She paused, and a small smirk crossed her lips, almost too small to see. “… that we ‘play nice’ together rather than play against each other…”
 
Weary Wanderer
 
03:12PM
REAL unity for Hellifyno. where each governs its own territory, and unite as one when needed.
 
<she smiles faintly< this sounds very similar to what another once said…
 
Zaire
 
03:13PM
“I have to agree with Alysha on this. The Void can’t be allowed to be eradicated. I…. There are a few reasons as to why that cannot be allowed to happen. Primarily being that this “Order” cannot exist without a balancing force.” She rests her hand on her stomach for a moment, ears pinned back. And she looks over at Alysha, a nod to her. “There won’t be unity if the Void is destroyed. Or any beings who are soulless. There will only be more conflict.”
 
Kaler Eland
 
03:13PM
*If the note was seen or not, the teddy would return to around the back of the room to continue scribbling notes, recording just about everything said, and seen; they were quite the fast scribblers*
 
Echo
 
03:13PM
::extending her senses a few inches from her body, she holds out one hand and then closes it over something small that wasn’t visible a moment earlier, then puts it in her healers bag::
 
Aero
 
03:14PM
Aero would nod. “I agree with this… it makes sense. Why would we try and force everyone to ‘team up’ when all we need is cooperation between the different states when its needed?”
 
Micah Wintersong
 
03:14PM
*Micah frowned, working at slowly draining her bottle. She never had that good of a grasp on politics, but something about the whole situation kept her planted in her seat, wearily watching the events transpiring. Dipping a finger into her whiskey, and letting the little calico kitten lick the orange liquid from her finger* …at least it’s not our drama.
 
Alysha Schönherr
 
03:14PM
Alysha nods with zaire. finally, someone who sees sense…and the good of the void!
 
Echo
 
03:14PM
::scoffs:: The Void *can’t* be eradicated unless you want a war we could not win.
 
Alysha Schönherr
 
03:14PM
she nods further
 
Zaire
 
03:16PM
“And, let’s be frank. I’m pretty sure most of us are sick of pointless conflict that serves no real purpose.”
 
Leonite Lunareyes
 
03:16PM
If that is the case than it should be a multi-government run executive with those involved in the treaty. Those who wish not to be involved or take part or who fail to see the concept of such a group will not be involved or have say how the military group is run. -He clears his throat and peers toward Echo. Due to reputation alone, he knows who she is based on hair, the aura she gives off, the power she exudes and she is granted automatic respect status among the others here already. While he hates the idea of void being able to run rampant, he knows that good cannot exist without the bad and that means Gaia- I begrudgingly agree that the void cannot be destroyed for a variety of reasons but an attempt should be made to control it’s growth.
 
Gen. Franziska Krieger, Olde Watch
 
03:16PM
“Oh, then perhaps it is time for me to ‘rue’, Miss Echo.” Franziska held her head high. “I know a fair amount about you already. As it is my job to. You merely lack knowledge about ME at this point, I believe. As I said, I’m here to balance the scales and offer faith and trust in Olde Watch. I know the process will be long… but what is it you wish?” She looked over everyone else. “Do you want us to keep our military strength to ourselves, and then have to scramble to assist you? Or do you want is to take the initiative to take the bullets for you, and then fire back WITH you? We’re offering our lives alongside your own against what threats come our way.”
 
Echo
 
03:17PM
::she fixes her eyes on Krieger:: It is very *kind* of you to suggest this plan after you already have a fleet in place throughout the solar system.
 
Weary Wanderer
 
03:17PM
I would offer a compromise to both these..suggestions..from Olde Watch…
 
Echo
 
03:17PM
::she does not sit, but turns to give Weary her full attention::
 
Gen. Franziska Krieger, Olde Watch

“As for the Void…” And NOW her eyes came to rest on Alysha. “…I will not hide my hatred for those that would doom us to an early grave. I refuse to take such a thing lying down. And I will do all I can to prevent it from destroying the rest of us as well.” The holographic display activated again, showing an image of the furthest planet from their sun… Planet IX. “The… creatures that populate this planet, and those that infected Olde Watch… They ARE my enemies. And I will not tolerate any of their efforts to spread, undermine, and destroy us. I will NOT.”
 
“But… this is a cessation of hostilities. Miss Schonherr, as long as you do not act against us… you are an ally.”

“At this point anyone who opposes olde watches suggestion is ruled by grudges and is simply refusing to accept the move for progress and potential prosperity.” He says with a sigh before motioning a maid for a drink.

“Speak if you have a suggestion.” Her steely dark gaze drifted to Weary for the moment, drumming her fingers on the podium that she was now gripping very, very tightly.

Zaire
 
03:21PM
Zaire falls silent once more, her arms folded. But as soon as she hears talk of ‘controlling population’, the Yuki turns her attention to the bear. “And how, dear sir, do you plan to ‘control’ their spread? Going to force them into a place where they can’t live or survive without fighting each other? The soulless are just as deserving of a right to live and to love as any of us.”

Accepting prosperity at the end of a gun isn’t prosperity at all. But that’s just my opinion. *She frowned to herself, instantly wishing she’d kept her mouth shut*

03:21PM
-The Steelheart Colonies are not a well known area among the people of Hellifyno and in truth, their gates have been closed to outsiders just as Halgan was to all creatures aside from the werewolves of that time period. In his case, it’s open to a number of Steelheart werewolves and then the Lunareyes clan as a whole. It always had been, always would be. But his eyes pointedly find their way to Aero- For someone who was recently sought after for punishment, you seem awfully eager to make amends.
 
Alysha Schönherr
 
03:22PM
“As long as THEY, aren’t your enemy I am not your enemy.” she stated… she also nods with Zaire’s words. “The void isn’t bad!” she protests.
 
Weary Wanderer
 
03:22PM
I suggest this: Each territory is responsible for governing and protecting its own.. down to its borders. Each also agrees to offer assistance in the case of a planet wide emergency, such as an outside threat. Assuming your militaries are as grand as you suggest, they should be prepared to offer assitance readily enough.l
 
I find it highly unlikely any outside threat would get close enough to attack without some warning before hand.
 
As for trade, i do believe trade routes were established long ago and could be utlized once more.
 
in this way, all are protected, without threat, and unity ensured if needed.
 
Zaire
 
03:25PM
Zaire stands just a little closer to Alysha. “Just because /some/ humans have targeted me and harmed me, I do not wish to see them eradicated. Same with any species out there. You cannot blame the actions of one, or even a small group of them, on the species as a whole. If that were the case, my own species’ reputation would have preceded me, and I would never have even been allowed to exist in this world.”

03:27PM
“Not to be unkind… But this is precisely what I am saying. Governance of territories other than our own is not our goal.” She exhaled through her nose. “We will keep our distance, if you so wish, or avoid entirely anyone that doesn’t wish for our presence at all. But, rather than keep all of our fire engines in one place and then send them where needed at the last minute… We WILL be spreading out across the solar system to keep an eye out for smoke, rather than wait for the fire to show itself in full.” She gestured at the holographic display, which showcased an image of… Olde Watch itself, but not as it was today… But as it was only a short time ago, close to ruins after the fight came to their capital in order to vanquish those powers of the Void that had infiltrated their Senate. “I want to keep ALL of us from experiencing the horror that befell my people. We will not act against those that do not act against us, plain and simple.”
 
Aero
 
03:28PM
Aero raises his hand before speaking. More to everyone instead of the Krieger. “What is the issue with this? They are offering to give their military to the rest of us… as long as we cease this fundamental hatred that’s seemed to fester within all of us… and… we have the ability to keep them in check… their goal is survival. And that means defending the rest of the planet as well.. there’s no reason to see this as a threat unless you intend to be a threat yourself..”

-Due to his web problems, the werebear leans back and is suddenly gone, slipping through a portal back to the werebear clan-grounds. Needless to say, Steelheart Colony will be present one day and able to help and push across their opinions but today will probably not be that day-
 
Weary Wanderer

“…My name. Is Krieger, madam. Krieger. Do not confuse me with any other family, thank you. Do not confuse MY goals with the goals of any other.” Her voice, light as it was, took on a darker connotation. “I’ll forgive the mistake of you insulting me by insinuating otherwise.” Taking a deep breath to still herself, Franziska steeled herself. “In summary… Olde Watch ceases all hostilities with any and all city-states on and in affiliation with Hellifyno. Instead, we pledge ourselves to the preservation of life throughout our solar system. We’ll protect your lives with our own, and stand side-by-side with you against any threat that seeks to eradicate or subjugate us.”

Then, another note is handed out to it, to which it then walks to the Krieger woman, and hands it up to her on her podium, since again, no way for it to speak. It read: “As the Lady is currently busy, as am I, I myself, Kaler Eland, speak that the idea you’ve offered is a good one, though again that consulting with Lady Kida at some point is best, as she has a wide history with the Watch.” Once the note was hopefully acknowledged, it returned to scribbling, scribble scribble.*

At THOSE words… Franziska simply rose into the air slowly, a faint glow around her body, a sudden humming in the air. The podium rose with her, her hair, wound together in a tight braid, floated about her head, and her clothes rippled. Her dark eyes stared out at those around her, and she nodded. “Protect? Yes. But despise you? No. Never. I’ve never had a hatred for magical creatures or people of a mystic background, personally… I’ve always had an INNATE curiosity instead.” She adjusted the pair of spectacles on her face as she floated towards the seats, levitating. “I was made part of Psi Ops, Support Branch of the Olde Watch. THIS… made me sensitive to certain forces…” Her eyes drifted to Alysha. “I could sense your kind’s presence. I can sense all of you that contain gifts that, well… would be considered supernatural. For this, me and my fellow operatives were deactivated, our gifted powers stripped from us, and as such, our corrupted Senate acted freely. I have ONLY ever had hatred for tyrants and destructive forces that wreak havoc on ALL of us.”

“Anyone that threatens Hellifyno openly will be engaged. I never made the distinction between if they were human or otherwise.” But, she did offer a light shrug. “I’ll not hide my bias towards the openly hostile forces of the Void, Abominations, and many more, though. That would be dishonest.”

Another holographic display activated behind the floating Krieger. Planets I and IV, the Moon of Hellifyno, and other moons beyond the asteroid belt, as well as many within the belt itself, all had the symbol of Olde Watch marked on them. “These are our official territories. We haven’t made claim to entire planetary bodies, only pieces of them. THESE are our interests, and these are the places where our expansion are focused. Other city-states as well as private individuals staked their claims to pieces of land on these worlds as well. We have been nothing but neighbors. The majority of them aren’t even populated by soldiers. Civilians, miners, their families… People trying to live on the frontier of our system. Mining here, making new life, those are their concerns.”

“In other words… No and no.”

04:20PM
::shakes her head:: Then you and Olde Watch are untrustworthy. And foolish. I hope you learn better when you grow up, child.

^Sass sighs and hums to herself^
 
Aero
 
04:21PM
“Its illogical to believe anyone would agree to thos terms. If they do that what ensures their safety if anyone attacks them? If we are the ones to break the accord.?”
 
Echo
 
04:21PM
::she raises her voice more:: I urge everyone who is a party to this discussion to insist on the same modifications. AM must be destroyed! And it is not safe for the rest of us to have Olde Watch controlling the entire space fleet!
 
Aero
 
04:22PM
“They wont be the only space fleet.
 
 
He adds with a sigh.
 
Sasuke “Sassy” Firemist
 
04:22PM
I can agree with Echo with destroying AM. However, I am concerned with clean up and how we properly dispose of it.
 
Echo
 
04:22PM
Do you notice she said “Olde Watch’s resources would remain THEIRS”? Not at the disposition of Hellifyno’s defenders. THEIRS.
 
Gen. Franziska Krieger, Olde Watch
 
04:22PM
Franziska and the podium drifted back to the stage floor, and she smoothed her coat over. “If we are meant to keep our distance, then our military ships will remain our own. Olde Watch does have several shipyards that manufacture space-faring ships that have been available for purchase for years, not to mention many other parties have ships available of equal quality. We have no need to allow access to our military technology to be made available.”
 
Echo
 
04:23PM
Easy enough, Sassy. Shoot it into the sun.
 
Weary Wanderer
 
04:23PM
and yet…
 
Gen. Franziska Krieger, Olde Watch
 
04:23PM
“As for Anti-Magic… It is far too useful against some of the threats I’ve named. Do you see me calling for the destruction of your magic?”
 
Aero
 
04:23PM
“Yes echo. She said that. And likewise. What’s yours is yours…”
 
Kaler Eland
 
04:23PM
*With the conversation as it is, the teddy would remain at the back, scribbling down its notes, detailing all that was said. However, for the writer, it was time to sleep, so they would become NPC mode, moving to a potentially more comfortable spot near to Franziska and the podium, mainly due to her being not so much in the firing zone of conversations.*
 
Sasuke “Sassy” Firemist
 
04:23PM
Isn’t the sun, like, a portal or some shit now?
 
Aero
 
04:24PM
“They are not asking to mix our resources or to make one nation… simply that we stop bickering and assist when its needed.”
 
Weary Wanderer
 
04:24PM
no Aero. that’s NOT what was said..

“But it is! They are offering to defend the planet… in return we stop fighting them!”

04:25PM
Alysha is just leaning back into her chair at this point, drumming her metal fingers against her artificial leg.
 
Weary Wanderer
 
04:25PM
yes, but only if they can decide where to place their military..
 
Aero
 
04:26PM
“They will place their military where it is tactical… likewise. We should all do the same… place militaries where they can be useful…”
 
Gen. Franziska Krieger, Olde Watch
 
04:26PM
“We are offering protection and assistance against threats to us all. That is all that has been said. Any other goal that is being attributed to us, such as military expansion, conquering, whatever the hell else that some of you are guessing at… It is both false and exasperating.” The general let out one sharp sigh. “If you do not trust us, then investigate us. There will be no prevention of such an audit by any of you. This is all I’ve said.”
 
Weary Wanderer
 
04:26PM
and they can decide who is a threat and who isn’t.
 
Gen. Franziska Krieger, Olde Watch
 
04:26PM
“Madam, I’ve stated who I consider a threat.”
 
“I don’t believe I’ve listed YOU.”
 
Weary Wanderer
 
04:27PM
you did though… in a way.
 
Echo
 
04:27PM
Anti-magic is too dangerous to US. Not to most of Olde Watch. It never should have been allowed to be on this world after the Slayer War. Humans should have NO SAY in what happens to it, since it is no threat to them.
 
Weary Wanderer
 
04:27PM
I AM of another realm.. an empire of another realm. we just happen to be connected to Hellifyno for now so..here i am.
 
Sasuke “Sassy” Firemist
 
04:27PM
Welcome to Hellifyno; Planet filled with war…
 
Aero
 
04:27PM
“No! Your just acting rashly. You haven’t invaded though..”
 
Weary Wanderer
 
04:27PM
not yet..
 
but what if Olde Watch decides we are a threat? what then?
 
Aero
 
04:28PM
“It wont be only olde watch making that decision…”
 
Weary Wanderer
 
04:28PM
won’t it?
 
Gen. Franziska Krieger, Olde Watch
 
04:28PM
“We’ll decide you’re a threat when your soldiers fire upon us or any inhabitants on Hellifyno with the express purpose of military invasion.”
 
Aero
 
04:29PM
“No of course not. We need to make sure communication is a major part of this. Agreement. And yes. As long as you don’t behave like a threat and begin murdering innocents then you wont be a threat. Simple.”
 
Weary Wanderer
 
04:30PM
why do i feel like its daniel plainview all over again? ..< she shakes her head< no use. an impass as they say.
 
Echo
 
04:30PM
::raises her voice again:: You notice she refuses to make concessions that benefit everyone except Olde Watch? Once again, please, everyone who has a voice, insist on the destruction of Anti-Magic and the sharing of the fleet.
 
Aero
 
04:30PM
“Who is Daniel Plainview?” He asks on of the cat girls.
 
Raiden ( Jack)
 
04:31PM
/\ Wolf’s tail wags happily./\ ” If peace is truly wanted some things need to be sacrificed and if sacrificing the AM is what is what they need gone to trust you then I say it is a worthy sacrifice. As AM just doesn’t effect those who are a threat it also harms those who are innocent.”
 
Sasuke “Sassy” Firemist
 
04:31PM
Plainview was an old foe. Part of the three Apolocyptic wars. He is now no more.
 
Echo
 
04:31PM
I have seen this planet ravaged right to the soil by anti-magic, so that not even a blade of grass could grow. We must not risk that. It could be STOLEN from Olde Watch and used against us! It MUST be destroyed.
 
Weary Wanderer
 
04:32PM
…< shakes her head a litlte in an “ehhh” kinda move as. last she knew, plainview was an island so TECH still around..>
 
Aero
 
04:32PM
“No. She hasn’t made any concessions that only benefit olde watch… AM is the only reason their land still exists. If they toss it not only can we defend against some crazy force from space. But they also won’t be able to do anything when you overly emotional decide to just destroy them…”
 
Can we not*
 
Sasuke “Sassy” Firemist
 
04:32PM
It has been stolen by the Void and the council used to twist the minds of the innocents. With that said, I agree with Echo on destroying it.
 
Gen. Franziska Krieger, Olde Watch
 
04:33PM
“My. Name. Is. Krieger.” Franziska’s fist pounded the podium once more. “I am no Plainview, I am no blood of anyone else but Albodar Krieger! My ambitions, my legacy, they are of no other, of no other lineage! Your mistrust, your hatred? It is not met. I am, at this time, doing my best to trust that all in this room will try their best at coexistence.”
 
Sasuke “Sassy” Firemist
 
04:33PM
Okay, new plan on AM: We make an agreement on limiting AM.
 
Weary Wanderer
 
04:33PM
i promise, if i decide to destroy Olde Watch, AM won’t stop us….
 
Echo
 
04:34PM
::with that, her tall, slim and graceful yet strong figure strides out. She has done all she can. Now she can only hope enough people listened to her::
 
Gen. Franziska Krieger, Olde Watch
 
04:34PM
“Olde Watch has ceased all hostilities. Olde Watch will ask nothing of any other city-state on Hellifyno but a simple pledge… That we will stand together when the time comes, rather than let rivalries divide us and allow destruction to reign.”
 
Weary Wanderer
 
04:34PM
..and allowance for your military to be placed where you see fit..
 
Gen. Franziska Krieger, Olde Watch
 
04:34PM
“If you do not trust us, audit us. If you–” For a moment, Franziska suddenly… covered her mouth. And giggled. A sharp, harsh giggle, actually.
 
“Madam… Wanderer… Can I call you ‘Weary’? What… what is the nature of your realm, can I ask?”
 
“I know for myself exactly what it is, but… just humor me. State it.”
 
Weary Wanderer
 
04:36PM
<she smiles but doesn’t respond< why should we bother with an audit? by now i’m sure no one would find anything. having planned well in advanced for such.
 
Raiden ( Jack)
 
04:36PM
” That sounds reasonable Sassy.” /\ Raiden agrees with Sassy’s plan. /\
 
Weary Wanderer
 
04:37PM
my only concern with any of this, is your telling us..not asking, but telling..where you will place your military. regardless of our input. Adjust THAT…and i’ll be content.
 
Gen. Franziska Krieger, Olde Watch
 
04:37PM
“Are you especially well versed in spatial manipulation outside of sorcery? Do you have access to faster-than-light travel outside of magic? Do you protect your people with nanofibers, or enchantments? How do you even cross whatever barriers between our realm and your’s, I wonder?”
 
“Are you an advanced engineer, or a spellcaster?”
 
Alysha Schönherr
 
04:37PM
alysha remains silent. her city is safe, and the planet with the void zombies is safe. so she is content…even if she wants to see aero hung, and all corp burnt
 
Sasuke “Sassy” Firemist
 
04:37PM
Everyone has the right to defend themselves. If we all put in something to an agreement, we can limit AM and ensure that no one state can be more powerful over another.
 
Weary Wanderer
 
04:37PM
<she just continues to smile. and doesn’t respond>
 
æ Scion Anthem Kishimoto æ
 
04:38PM
And then, through a portal and late to the party, did the Scion of Hellifyno step forth into the meeting room. She was worried, of course, considering the last time that she attended one of these. Crimson red eyes looked around to see who was at this summit. Peace from Olde Watch? It was interesting enough to take a look.
 
Sasuke “Sassy” Firemist
 
04:38PM
And on top of it, it will leave the Void planet alone.
 
Weary Wanderer
 
04:38PM
<she looks at Sassy< and placement of military?
 
Alysha Schönherr
 
04:38PM
Alysha would try and wave to the scion, to try and wave her over.
 
Gen. Franziska Krieger, Olde Watch
 
04:39PM
“Madam, with as much respect as I can bother with you right now… If you intend to come here and lay waste to Olde Watch, or to any city-state of Hellifyno… And you intend to rely on your magic to do so? Or even your might? We may not even NEED Anti-Magic to crush you.”
 
Sasuke “Sassy” Firemist
 
04:39PM
We could all agree on where it will be placed. It’s simple.
 
Weary Wanderer
 
04:39PM
thank you, Sasuke..
 
Sasuke “Sassy” Firemist
 
04:39PM
Everyone will have what they want.
 
Kinda.
 
Gen. Franziska Krieger, Olde Watch
 
04:39PM
“As long as no one that wishes for the peace and well-being of Hellifyno, there will be no use of Anti-Magic on any city-state. That is all I’m saying.”
 
Aero
 
04:39PM
“You all seem to not understand how this will work….”
 
Weary Wanderer
 
04:40PM
<she nods to Sassy< i can agree with what you just laid out.
 
Sasuke “Sassy” Firemist
 
04:40PM
Hey! ^To the General^ What about my idea?
 
æ Scion Anthem Kishimoto æ
 
04:40PM
Her eyes opened wide a bit as she heard what the lady at the podium. Quietly she listened, holding onto her staff.
 
Aero
 
04:40PM
“Olde watch is keeping control of their military… like we all will be doing. And they are offering to defend when the planet needs it.. like what we all should be doing… we dont give others control of our own things…”
 
Weary Wanderer
 
04:41PM
and placement of your military?
 
Alysha Schönherr
 
04:41PM
alysha huffs. and even if she is interrupting ,she yells out “ANTHEM!” because waving didn’t seem to work.
 
Aero
 
04:41PM
“Its up to them to put their military where they want it. If the owner of the land says no. We just move it to the next adjacent land.”
 
Weary Wanderer
 
04:41PM
why not ask ahead of time before traveling?
 
acting before asking is not a sign of peace.
 
Gen. Franziska Krieger, Olde Watch
 
04:42PM
“Olde Watch’s military will not be governed by any city-state, either. Patrols have already been decided, and they keep a respectful distance from borders. Our priority is the planet itself and colonies on other planets. The balance of power between city-states will not be controlled by us, or anybody else. Our Anti-Magic stockpile will remain with us, and will only be used against those that are actively attempting to destroy all of us.”
 
Aero
 
04:42PM
Motions to the Krieger.
 
“There. Simple.”
 
Sasuke “Sassy” Firemist
 
04:42PM
^Sass huffs^
 
Gen. Franziska Krieger, Olde Watch
 
04:43PM
“If I need to make it clear that Olde Watch soldiers will not set foot on foreign soil until necessary, then I’m saying so now. We will not set foot on, nor enter the air-space of any city-state that is not under attack.”
 
Sasuke “Sassy” Firemist
 
04:43PM
So fuck an agreement then?
 
æ Scion Anthem Kishimoto æ
 
04:43PM
She now noticed the little redhead as a pained smirk appeared on her face. She had seen Aly die in a horrible fire last time they were together, not that it was really her. She closed the distance to the little void child, then just hugged her. “Sorry Im late.”
 
Gen. Franziska Krieger, Olde Watch
 
04:43PM
“And if you ARE under attack, then we will ask before entering still, if it is possible for us to ask.”
 
Aero
 
04:44PM
“Fair…” he says with a sigh. “Theres nothing wrong with this proposal.
 
C
 
 
æ Scion Anthem Kishimoto æ
 
04:44PM
“What did I miss?”
 
Weary Wanderer
 
04:44PM
and AM?
 
you won’t agree with Ms. Sasuke’s suggestion?
 
Alysha Schönherr
 
04:44PM
for the first time….In a very long time, alysha smiled, and hugged the scion, shifting to the side so she could sit down with her. “Shouting.” “I kept the void safe!” she whispers, excitedly
 
Gen. Franziska Krieger, Olde Watch
 
04:44PM
“I understand your fear of Anti-Magic, but also understand that we all have a fear of powerful magic that can act against us… Olde Watch will NOT destroy something so vital.”
 
Aero
 
04:45PM
“AM is the only means they have to defend themselves against the rest of the planet.”
 
Gen. Franziska Krieger, Olde Watch
 
04:45PM
“If you aren’t willing to understand that you aren’t our enemies, then we’ll just show that you aren’t by not attacking you.”
 
Sasuke “Sassy” Firemist
 
04:45PM
HEY! I HAVE AN IDEA I’D LIKE YOU TO LISTEN TO!
 
Gen. Franziska Krieger, Olde Watch
 
04:46PM
A nod of recognition went to the Scion, even as her eyes drifted to Sasuke Firemist. “Yes?”
 
Weary Wanderer
 
04:47PM
<she considers things while Sassy speaks>
 
Sasuke “Sassy” Firemist
 
04:48PM
Thank you. Been saying this for some time. What if we put in place an agreement to where the Void planet is left alone, you limit the amount of AM you have, and we help you pick a place of military operations. I do realize you have the right to project yourselves and that is fine. Limiting them would give us a peace of mind and helping you pick a place will help us ensure nobody gets attacked.
 
This isn’t a perfect solution.
 
But it’s better than none.
 
Weary Wanderer
 
04:49PM
<she tilts her head, an idea forming>
 
Gen. Franziska Krieger, Olde Watch
 
04:50PM
“Planet IX will not be attacked until the inhabitants there attempt to destroy us or another colony again. Our military operations will be limited to surveillance. A respectful distance will be kept at all times. And by respectful, I do mean that we will not have any Olde Watch ship in orbit above any city-state or colony that isn’t our own at any time when there is no crisis at hand.” Franziska smoothed back a few stray hairs as she continued. “There will be no discussion about our Anti-Magic.”
 
“We state that we do not want to govern you, and yet… you seem to want to govern us. This isn’t a fair exchange.”
 
Weary Wanderer
 
04:50PM
…i have a suggestion than..
 
a middle ground, if you will?
 
Aero
 
04:51PM
“What she’s proposed is a middle ground..” he says with a sigh.
 
Gen. Franziska Krieger, Olde Watch
 
04:51PM
“Our Senators truthfully believed that, in an expression of gratitude for what some of you did for us in freeing us from those that had deceived us, that we could return the favor…”
 
æ Scion Anthem Kishimoto æ
 
04:51PM
“Im sure.” She replied to the little redhead. Shaking her head at the sound of protecting the void. Then she regarded the rest of the room, getting a general idea of whats going on.
 
Weary Wanderer
 
04:52PM
destroy every single drop of AM they have and allow kill switches to be installed in all international ships, and have kriegers vats moved to a public location as collateral, in exchange, you can keep and utlize Anfe..this way, AM is no longer a concern, those of us concerned abot your military are content, and you still have a defense against magic.
 
Alysha Schönherr
 
04:52PM
So, the little redhead leaned her head against the scion’s shoulder. feeling she had actually done something good for once. felt quite nice, and not stressful for once…maybe she was just comforted because anthy was here… she was a little clingy to her guardian
 
Gen. Franziska Krieger, Olde Watch
 
04:52PM
“My cousin, Heinrick Krieger, and his location, is not at all any of your concern at this moment in time.”
 
Aero
 
04:52PM
“At that point we will be holding them hostage…” he says with a grumble.
 
Weary Wanderer
 
04:53PM
you ask for trust, but give NOTHING in return..
 
Gen. Franziska Krieger, Olde Watch
 
04:53PM
“The notion of kill switches is also ridiculous to no end.”
 
Weary Wanderer
 
04:53PM
you want to HELP..even if its not wanted..this sounds like a tyrant making a move for power. not a people wanting to make amends and move forward.
 
Gen. Franziska Krieger, Olde Watch
 
04:53PM
“The fact that you allow your fear of a valuable weapon prohibit its use is also foolish.”
 
Weary Wanderer
 
04:53PM
just for your ships, not your people.
 
Aero
 
04:54PM
“No weary… you will be holding their military hostage… their city hostage..”
 
Weary Wanderer
 
04:54PM
and its not fear, Dear..its common sense.
 
Solandis Octavian
 
04:54PM
-Up till now, there has been no interaction from the Octavian girl, nothing to signal whether she was in fact there at all except for a shadow in the very back of the room. That shadow, for the most part, has not even made so much as a movement until now. In her eyes, there is nothing here to signal truth that has come from Olde Watch, nothing to show that they’re really going to live up to their word and her desire for action is one that comes from a fear of all those who were attacked by Olde Watch Slayers or from those infected by the void in their midst or caught in the crossfire of a war that they did not want to be dragged into. While most of the room is watched, there’s nothing to say that she is. She steps from a shadow, a figure poised in dark robing and with piercing blue eyes and a hand is extended. Wire seems to come from no where, thick and razor sharp, slicing right for Gen. Franziska and her company, nothing said from the girl as she drawls her hand back. The wire itself is shaped cross hatch, made to disperse others in little chunks-
 
æ Scion Anthem Kishimoto æ
 
04:54PM
Anthem blinked at Weary. “How is that a middle ground? That is not trust, that is oppression.”
 
Weary Wanderer
 
04:54PM
why? they will have Anfe…
 
Sasuke “Sassy” Firemist
 
04:54PM
^Sass groans and faceplants into a wall^
 
Weary Wanderer
 
04:55PM
they have anfe and AM..that is twice a threat
 
Zaire
 
04:55PM
And there’s a yawn from Zaire. Who hadn’t actually left. But at the sight of wires, she grins. “What reason do we have to trust them? ANFE is more than enough to incapacitate magical beings. I STILL get headaches from that shit.”
 
Aero
 
04:55PM
“Anfe is easy to duplicate… anyone can have it..”
 
æ Scion Anthem Kishimoto æ
 
04:55PM
“And we have thousands of types of magic, that can be a threat to them.”
 
Zaire
 
04:55PM
“Oh, look at that. Confetti.”

æ Scion Anthem Kishimoto æ

“Should we rip out the weave of magic in fair trade?”
 
Gen. Franziska Krieger, Olde Watch
 
04:56PM
“Also, I’m utterly confused why someone who does not live in our world remains here running at the mouth with all manner of suggestions for how we should conduct ourselves…” There was a pause in her speech now, and then… She extended a hand herself. “STOP.” The wire would find itself ensnared by an unseen force, the raw mental power of Franziska herself, a halo of energy around her eyes. “And… what is this? An attacker, I see…”
 
Sasuke “Sassy” Firemist
 
04:56PM
Don’t rip magic out and we certainly cannot let them lose something to protect them from hostile magic users.
 
Aero
 
04:56PM
“For fucks sake..” Aero grumbles. “Seriously?”
 
Zaire
 
04:57PM
“How about this? Keep the AM. It’s good for HOSTILE users. But what about the rest of us? Those who want nothing more than to survive in this world and be left the FUCK alone? Do it. Leave us be. I’m not asking you to get rid of your defenses. But /regulate/ your people.”
 
Alysha Schönherr
 
04:57PM
alysha lets out a yawn as the adults argue. she’s done her work, and ensured her people’s safety, to which she’d likely try and talk to about anthy later, if she got the chance.
 
Solandis Octavian
 
04:57PM
-The stopping of one wire attack only triggers another two, each coming from other angles while the girl darts back toward the shadows, not at all ashamed by her reaction. The Octavian girl grins, black hair falling around her face and she is a blur of movement, darting from the area she was just in to avoid detection though that is hard in and of itself considering the chairs and other things in her way-
 
Aero
 
04:58PM
Aeros cane would shift to its chain blade form and slither up to entangle itself into one of the wires.
 
Sasuke “Sassy” Firemist

^Sass looks over to Aly. She can bet she can work something out with her as she doubts that Olde Watch is willing to listen to her. She bumps her head into the wall on that note^

<she laughs a little< and to think, i thought peace summit actually meant peace for a change.
 
Gen. Franziska Krieger, Olde Watch
 
04:59PM
Each of the other wires found themselves caught by unseen mental hand in Franziska’s attempt to protect herself and others. “It seems that perhaps this is a conversation best meant to be discussed with only relevant powers… Miss Firemist?” Franziska dared to glance in the direction of the Tradelord. “I am deeply interested in discussing things further with you, and anyone else that actually matters.”
 
Spc. Allison Greene
 
05:00PM
The Specialist sitting in the front row wastes no time in responding. She got up out of her chair, her helmet snapping into place as she pulled out on of her 9mm’s and took aim at the attacker. She searched for the source of the attack, rushing the attacker while taking careful aim and firing while approaching.
 
Sasuke “Sassy” Firemist
 
05:00PM
I will be willing to discuss things with you, General. ^She sighs^

“Scion Anthem Kishimoto, I have many things I’d like to discuss with you at a later time as well.” Seeing Specialist Greene spring into action, Franziska considered taking further action herself, but she did have a responsibility to protect these people as she’d already said… Such a reckless attack endangered them all.

“We are trying to make an actual attempt at progress and moving on from the previous conflicts but you all insist on keeping Olde watch hostage.”

Being this late to the negotiations, there were key points that she missed so Anthem didn’t know how to add or what. But whatever it was, it would seem that the mistrust for the Watchmen would prevail. Still, she listened to what was happening; keep Aly alongside as she did so.

-The wire caught by Aero’s chain blade whips around, fully intending on decapitating the man but seeing as to how none of her attacks have thus far garnered damage, her powers still not quite adept enough to truly catch an intended target, it’s a hit or miss action in general as another her wired attacks is thwarted by Franziska. She’s fast, not fast enough to dodge several bullets but it’s hard to say how many have actually been fired. She dives, taking cover behind a table that she uses all the force of her shoving power to send vaulting through the air toward Allison while she slides into those shadows and disappears. A long battle in the midst of attack isn’t something she’s come prepared for and it’s much easier to escape now and deal with consequences later-

She scoffs. “That’s what you think.” She brushes her hair back out of her face, revealing that missing eye and turns to Alysha. “And, sweet little German? If you’re ever interested in meeting another of your kind, let me know. I hope to see you soon.” She calls out into the shadows. “I’m heading home. I’m already bored out of my mind.” And poof.

“Please, everyone, if you’d like to, leave through the portals you arrived through.” With the attacker gone, Franziska gestured to the portals that could take those back to their previous destinations.
 
“Perhaps those that wish to speak with me that actually wish to reach an agreement can stay or discuss with me where we could depart for better conversation. But here is where I call an end to the Hellifyno Peace Summit.”

“I would like to speak with you as well.” She stated to the General, it would seem this open forum wouldn’t be very advantageous to actually reaching some form of accord. “Later, of course.”

“Count ALL Corp in this private meeting..” he says before his cane reforms and he sighs.

I’ll be down to meet on your terms, ma’am. However, I will be requesting you and I to be leveling the playing field to ensure that neither one would be attacking the other. I would like to ensure some neutrality on this since we both have an amazing amount of power that will not end well.
