(12:42)Seabiscuit: H- hey, uhm, UR's dragging me into a private chat with him and Padlock! And Rasputin! Brb~
(12:42)Seabiscuit: Oh, uhm
(12:43)Seabiscuit: Omg omg guys, I still needa tell Pancake something to gain his trust! He wants to know what Rasputin is up to in Russia, but Rasputin won't tell me. Any ideas for a convincing lie?
(12:43)Seabiscuit: (Also, Anarchon, can you sea this, buddy??)
(12:44)Arbiter: Xeno? Can he?
(??:??)Xenocartographer: There is as yet insufficient data for a meaningful answer.
(12:44)Arbiter: Figures. Biscuit (can I call you that?), I don't know, but that does remind me of something I need to take care of.
/message OITHEOI Capturing a conspirator, eh? Finally, someone who actually deserves to get kidnapped!
/message OITHEOI There's a metric butt-tonne of them at Algernon University right now. It's open season on breakfast goons.
/message OITHEOI They're there to either assassinate or capture a certain student, an operation of which I believe you're aware. In case you didn't know by this point, they are not protecting this student. They wish him harm.
/message OITHEOI Geez, Panny's sure got a thing for attacking college-age kids, eh? The creep.
/message OITHEOI I don't know if you've figured this out by now either, but they also killed bloodshoes. Hence my "orange guys don't exactly have the longest lifespan when Eugene's involved" comment from earlier.
/message OITHEOI ...I'm sorry about that, by the way. I don't know if you give a [censored] about his death, but he seemed like a good guy, and I'm sorry he's dead.
/message OITHEOI He didn't deserve to have his death referred to so callously by some indigo dickhead in order to mock some blue dickhead. You deserved it, but he didn't, and for that I apologize.
/message OITHEOI Anyway, I understand that they're under EMCON right now, so they can't contact Eugene through the usual channels. Now is the best time to strike.
/message OITHEOI Oh, and by the way, I'm pretty sure that the guy you once described as "Chinese-Nigerian, has a limp in his right leg, wears digital glasses" goes by the name bobtheconspirator, and that he's the one who killed bloodshoes.
/message OITHEOI Just in case you capture them and are having difficulty deciding who to "interrogate" first.
/message reply Huh? No. But Pancake had him killed. Don't you think we should do something?
/message reply I was hoping you could help there.
/message reply So you're a hacker.
/message reply It's complicated.
/message reply You didn't have much trouble taking out that destroyer. And its crew. :/
/message reply Fair enough. I suppose we'll have to get creative. Could we strike a deal with one of the other chess players?
/message reply Yup. You sit there, pulling strings behind the scenes to maneuver things into whatever the hell it is you want. It seems fitting.
(23:08)System: Alias set. Note that users of moderator rank or above may bypass your alias.
(23:09)System: Created an anonymous (temporary) channel.
/invite Admiral Pancake
(23:10)Admiral Pancake: What is this all about?
(23:13)Padlock: Well, well, well... I hear you three haven't been getting along very well together, let's talk about that. Now, remember; this is a safe place free of judgement. Which one of you would like to start?
/mood *Patiently waiting with a face full of concern, and hope, for the future of this relationship.*
(23:13)System: Mood message set.
(23:13)Admiral Pancake: What the [censored] are you playing at?
(23:15)Padlock: Panak, these chatlogs clearly show a lot of hostility towards your friends; before reprimanding a subordinate, why don't you try putting yourself in their shoes - what could be the reason for their failure, perhaps you're working them too hard? Go a little easier on your conspirators, you'll see that a little encouragement goes a long way!
(23:16)Admiral Pancake: ...
(23:17)Padlock: And __RSPTN__ your power-struggle relationship with ThatOneVampChick isn't healthy for either of you. You both should sit down and have a serious discussion about the potential strain that it is putting on the two of you. Open a line of honest emotional communication between both of you and really speak what your hearts are saying.
(23:18)__RSPTN__: Oh, I'm sure it's terribly unhealthy! But it's fun, and life is short. :)
(23:19)Padlock: Theodore, your superior attitude towards others is a real problem - you have to stop pushing people away when you feel you've lost control, let go of control and live freely. You may think you don't need anyone, but everyone needs someone, even Panak has SilentConspirator... who do you have?
(23:20)Padlock: I'm sorry, but were all out of time for this session. I think we all have some thing to work on for next time. Let's try to close those gaps between you and fix this beautiful relationship together, OK? Good luck you three!
*(23:20)Padlock Gives a warm smile and walks you out.*
(23:24)OITHEOI: Who the devil was that?
(12:56)OITHEOI: Now, if this "Councilor" happens to be a friend of yours... While I suspect this was a distraction, I'd still like to break that alias.
(12:56)Arbiter: What makes you think it's an alias?
(12:57)OITHEOI: I couldn't find an account by that name. That leaves either an alias or a protected account, and I've ruled out the latter to my satisfaction.
(12:58)Arbiter: Well, nope. No idea who they are.
(12:58)Arbiter: Figuring out what to do with EP is definitely more important. This is probably just a distraction, as you said.
(12:58)OITHEOI: If you have an idea, I'm all ears.
/message FelisKitty Oh, roomie dearest, where you at?
/message reply Oh my god.
(14:09)EntropicPhantom: Felicity? D:
*(14:09)FelisKitty hug D:*
(14:09)FelisKitty: He- he's dead, Alex. I- I checked, but I- I didn't need to-
(14:09)FelisKitty: I think these are shotgun wounds. They're all over his torso. Whoever did this was out to cause pain.
(14:10)EntropicPhantom: Tell me you called security?
(14:13)FelisKitty: Yes, but I only got the office's voicemail. The message said they were responding to a lockout. But the cops are on their way.
(14:14)EntropicPhantom: Good thinking. Do you think you should come by the room?
(14:15)FelisKitty: I don't know. I'd like to be here to show the police what I found...
(14:16)EntropicPhantom: I'd feel more comfortable with you here. You left them a detailed message, right? I'm sure they're in touch with security.
(14:16)FelisKitty: You'd think so, but why haven't the alarms gone off? This is definitely lockdown-worthy...
(14:16)FelisKitty: Something's not right here.
(14:17)EntropicPhantom: You mean besides Professor Blackwood being dead?!
(14:18)FelisKitty: I mean, this isn't how this should be handled. Where are the emergency services? Something should have happened by now...
(14:19)EntropicPhantom: It's only been a few minutes, hasn't it?
(14:20)FelisKitty: That shouldn't matter. I study this stuff, Alex, and this is wrong.
(14:21)EntropicPhantom: You sure you don't want to come back here? Whatever's going on can't be safe.
(14:22)FelisKitty: I... I don't know, Alex. I'm very concerned.
(14:23)EntropicPhantom: I'm concerned about you, Fel! A- and if something really is going on, and something happens to you, then you can't follow up on it...
(14:25)FelisKitty: What do you mean?
(14:25)EntropicPhantom: I mean...
(14:25)EntropicPhantom: What if the killer's still here?
