(10:47)System: Incoming private message from Seabiscuit: Ok!! So like Pancake. You know what Etamnanki is? 'Cos he's totally doing that. He has like a buncha AIs and personality clones and he's gonna start a war with gaians or something woah
(10:50)Seabiscuit: vip access
(10:51)__RSPTN__: Have you juggled badgers yet?
(10:51)Seabiscuit: I have things to tell you about Pancake!
(10:52)__RSPTN__: Oh, dear Eugene... Yes, I read your message. :)
(10:53)Seabiscuit: S- so you'll help me now, yeah?
(10:53)__RSPTN__: Oh, not at all! I implied that I'd help you in exchange for information, and had we negotiated a deal, I'd have certainly followed it! I am nothing if not a man of my word. Unfortunately, there was no deal arranged, and therefore nothing to hold me to.
(10:53)Seabiscuit: ... ;~;
(10:53)__RSPTN__: You just got played, Biscuit, like a rank amateur.
(10:55)__RSPTN__: Gosh indeed.
(10:56)Seabiscuit: K- kitten?
(10:56)KittenLicks: Hey, Seafurscuit! :3
(10:56)KittenLicks: What's up?
(10:56)Seabiscuit: I [censored]ed up D:
(10:57)KittenLicks: Aww, what hapurrened?
(10:57)Seabiscuit: I was talking to Rasputin... A- and...
(10:59)Seabiscuit: He's so mean! Holy [censored]
(10:59)KittenLicks: Yeah, he's a hissy one! It was brave of you to make the attempt, at least!
(11:00)Seabiscuit: It was stupid! I thought- I thought I could get information out of him D:
(11:00)KittenLicks: Do you think you hissed him off?
(11:00)Seabiscuit: N- no, not like that
(11:01)Seabiscuit: He just baited some information out of me and laughed at me :(
(11:01)KittenLicks: Meow, gosh, let's get him back for that! What did you tell him?
(11:01)Seabiscuit: Th- that Pancake's starting a war with Gaia...
(11:01)KittenLicks: Ah! Purrfect!
(11:02)Seabiscuit: You think there's an oppurrtunity here?
(11:02)Seabiscuit: ...god dammit...
(11:03)KittenLicks: You can't fight the kitties!
(11:03)Seabiscuit: D: I'm not going to punch a cat!
(11:03)KittenLicks: No, of course not! We're going to punch a smug blue world domination guy over the Intfurrnet!
(11:04)KittenLicks: You talked to Unum earlyfurr?
(11:04)Seabiscuit: All these cat puns I can't even
(11:04)KittenLicks: It's a pretty good way to chpurr you up!
(11:04)Seabiscuit: Bit of a stretch, don't you think?
(11:05)KittenLicks: If you pretend you're hearing the whiskfurrs of Gaia, like you did with her, I think that'll give you an oppurrtunaty!
(11:06)Seabiscuit: is that a recursive cat pun
(11:06)KittenLicks: It meowght be!
(11:07)Seabiscuit: you are a madwoman and you need to stop
(11:07)KittenLicks: You think I'm a woman?~
(11:08)Seabiscuit: A- aren't you?
(11:08)KittenLicks: So do we have a plan?
(11:09)Seabiscuit: I think so!
(11:09)KittenLicks: Now go back and purrtail!
(11:11)Seabiscuit: W- well, I can help you more!
(11:12)__RSPTN__: What's your angle, anyway? Why are you doing this? I don't get the vibe that you know much of anything, but you've approached me as if you have some serious stake in this fight. You don't fit anyone's models. I'm curious, and somewhat alarmed.
(11:12)Seabiscuit: I just... kind of know things, I guess?
(11:13)__RSPTN__: What kinds of things?
(11:12)Seabiscuit: W- well...
(11:12)Seabiscuit: I- I hear things sometimes...
(11:12)Seabiscuit: a- about the universe ending?
(11:12)__RSPTN__: Are you a Gaian, Seabiscuit?
(11:13)Seabiscuit: no ;^;
(11:14)Seabiscuit: I spoke to Unum and she sent me to you
(11:14)Seabiscuit: She called you her "good friend Ashley", and said you could point me in the right direction...
(11:15)Seabiscuit: I don't get it, though
(11:15)Seabiscuit: Why wouldn't Unum just tell me the answer directly?
(11:16)__RSPTN__: She must see something special in you. But I have to ask, Biscuit-
(11:16)__RSPTN__: Do you know what you're getting yourself into? You mentioned Etamnanki, so clearly you know something-
(11:16)__RSPTN__: But how much, I wonder? Do you know of the great filter? Do you know of shatterpoints?
(11:17)Seabiscuit: I've heard the word, but-
(11:18)__RSPTN__: Then move with caution. This is not a road for the faint of heart.
(11:18)__RSPTN__: Ours is a world far unlike yours - a world of subtle powers and stratagems that make the sum total of human struggle a child's phantasmagoria against the backdrop of an uncaring cosmos. It is a world of mathematical necessity. When I move, the universe moves with me. A single misstep threatens to send the whole thing tumbling down.
(11:20)__RSPTN__: I am fated to die at the right hand of a tyrant, remembered only for betraying my one true love. To do otherwise is to consign everyone that ever lived to ashes.
(11:21)__RSPTN__: To know the future is to be enslaved by it. If you have any common sense, you would turn back. Leave this path and live the life you deserve.
(11:21)__RSPTN__: Or, if that's not your cup of tea, you could spy on Eugene for me.
