    Vimma doesn't get the hint and keeps staring.
    "Yeah, well I don't think Gordon did, either."

    Magtok grins. It's a weird sort of grin, because at the same time, he's doing his best to glare at the awful dog monster with his eyes.

    "As for how to run things...well, I'll get back to you on that one once the meeting's resumed."

    Magtok steps away, doing that thing to Viima where you point with two fingers at someone, and then at your own eyes, to let them know you're watching them. He then hurries off to go get himself a donut. It's about time he got away from that awful mongrel. And that mongrel's pet wolf. =P

    Alright, I guess I might have misunderstood it. In any case Ilpholin, where could I meet you after the meeting? I think we might need to talk in person unless you think that's too risky.

    "Hmm... I suppose you could meet me at BDD, though I'm not sure it'll be beneficial and I suspect there'll be a difference in arrival times. You'd best hurry up if you want any doughnuts. Zee's eating them all." It's probably not true, but that doesn't stop Ilph from tele-thinking it.

    Great, I'll try to stay away from the doughnuts though, I like to be able to fit into my old dresses after the pregnancy. Cessie replies in a less serious tone. I'll see you then.

    And if there is nothing else the call will end and the mage will eventually be back in the council chamber.

    Tobias is still sitting in his chair. It feels like this break has lasted more than twice as long as the actual meeting has. It's almost like nobody wants to discuss this particular issue. He can't blame them for that, but it's not like anyone else has convened the Council to talk about any other issue in months.
    "There are books so alive that you're always afraid that while you weren't reading, the book has gone and changed, has shifted like a river;
    while you went on living, it went on living too, and like a river moved on and moved away.

    But did anyone ever step twice into the same book?"

    Last I remember, we were discussing which proposals by Miss Xar'Cha to accept and which to reject. I suggest we get straight to voting, unless someone else has something important to add, so that hopefully we don't get sidetracked again, Dipsnig says.

    Ilpholin whispers to Magtok briefly, "Meet you at BDD when this is all done."

    Ignoring Cessie's passive-aggressive comment, she clears her throat. She did have one thing that needed to be covered before voting.

    "Before the break, the HALO representative asked whether AMEN can have a unified interest that the majority of members agree on. Well my answer is that yes, they can and have and do. It was also directly stated that doing anything other than such representation as a leader in a Council seat would be considered gross negligence and incompetence."

    "I wish to make it clear then as AMEN's leader, that from here on forth, both in Council and outside of it, regardless of my personal desires or opinions, I shall represent AMEN fully to the best of my capacity. As requested."

    "Unfortunately, from direct admission it has come to my attention that Council, both in its formation..." Ilpholin nods to Vasquez, referring to her comments prior to the break, "And in its continuing function," She nods to Tobias this time, "Presents an undue negative outside influence on AMEN, designed to primarily control it and its activities in order to minimize their effects."

    "As such, AMEN will be abdicating its seat entirely and from here on forth, will not be participating in Council meetings."

    "I thought that pretense was obvious, considering no one could ever seriously want AMEN involved in governance," Vyrn states rather bluntly.

    "I suppose that puts a convenient end to the notion of putting an AMENite in charge of the city, though, so that's a positive note. I merely hope it is not a declaration of war, and believe that most parties here have had enough of that for a very long time.

    That said, if it is, I hope this council will be more...proactive than my successors thus far in dealing with the problem. Such attacks cannot be tolerated. Should the rest of you agree, of course, as I'm just an advisor."


    He, of course, has other plans there, but he's not exactly going to share them with the AMENite-to-be-gone in the room.

    Magtok nods, conceding that Ilpholin has a pretty good point there. Besides, with Magtok sitting in on these things, it's not like ditching that seat is going to result in a loss of intel, is it? Insofar as a rapscallion like Magtok can be trusted to provide accurate information on Council discussions, of course.

    And then Vyrn has to go and open his mouth. The cyborg's still-organic eye twitches, and he stands up and opens his mouth to say something incredibly hostile and vulgar, but halts himself and sits back down before a single profanity can pass his lips, simply seething in the general direction of the adviser and the woman holding his leash instead. All that time and energy put into tearing Gordon apart, to get Inside off of AMEN's agenda, and then this...this absolutely minotaur-droppings crazy nonsense about a pre-emptive strike, right in front of the highest-ranking officials in the entire Association.

    Vasquez gives Ilpholin a respectful nod. She understood the choice perfectly and wasn't going to choose otherwise. Ilpholin was definitely smarter than her predecessor. "I wish you best of luck in your future endeavors." She says sincerely before scowling at Vyrn. "You're right. You're just an advisor here, Vyrn. Things have changed since you've left and your views, while invaluable sometimes, are outdated in this matter." She says, being blunt with him to make a point. Turning back to Ilpholin, she speaks again. "I hope we won't bump heads in the future, and I swear that should any of your personnel attempt something untoward against the citizenry here, we'll apprehend them to the best of our ability and return them. Is that satisfactory?" Even though she and Ilpholin had agreed to similar terms before, it hadn't been in public. What she was offering the part-Drow was something of an olive branch, but more importantly, a way for Ilpholin to appear even better.

    Well, that was a disappointment. It would be better for everyone to have clear lines of communication with AMEN. Tobias keeps his expression blank, but Vyrn's self-important polemic causes his jaw to tighten in annoyance. Just who does this "Advisor" think he is?

    "You do realise," Shrike speaks up, "that by resigning AMEN's seat you are de facto acknoledging that AMEN is no longer a Great Power among the Orgs, and lacks the status and ability to be regarded on the same level as HALO, GLoG, and NO?"

    Dipsnig joins Vasquez and Magtok in shooting Vyrn a glare. For "just an advisor", the emperor-turned-pencil pusher sure has a big mouth. Not that he disagrees that AMEN's place is in the middle of a smoking crater, but really...
    That's definetly a logcial decision, his his only comment. He chooses not to voice his opinion on Shrike's... somewhat out-of-the-blue remark.

    Magtok's hate and fury abruptly shifts itself over from Vyrn to Shrike, turning cold, vicious, and calculated, instead of the fiery, impulsive, imprecise mess that it was just a moment ago.

    "Miss Shrike, please. Name-calling and immature goading of other representatives should be beneath the delegate of the Good League of Good. If you would be so kind, please put your face back down between the legs of your mate, where you undoubtedly spend most of your waking hours, and leave such childishness to those much better suited to it. Brinika, the Applehills, Salix, Jamie and I'm sure many others would appreciate it if you did."

    Intentionally name-dropping the youngest and most helpless of GLoG's residents? That's really twisted, Maggy. He doesn't linger on that implied threat though, instead already shifting his attention over to Ilpholin.

    "Goodbye, and best of luck to you, Ms. Xar'cha. I'll make sure to let you know how the voting went later."

    Luckily for Vasquez' player, he wasn't taking a drink at the time he read the comment about the legs.

    The same cannot be said of Vas.

    During the brief pause in her talking, she had proceeded to take a drink from her glass, and as soon as Magtok speaks, she chokes on it and clamps a hand over her nose as she reaches for some tissues. She'll have to applaud Magtok for that one later. As well as on his use of subtle threats.

    Zee totally ate all the doughnuts. Or at least whatever doughnuts where left. Heaven knows how long it has been since she's actually eaten anything physical.

    And then everyone starts ranting at each other!

    How very absurd.

    She coughs slightly to get the attention of those gathered.

    "I think we should start by voting on the idea of a fast-response beacon network being set up Inside instead of sniping at each others mating habits," the Far Chimera suggests, glancing over at Magtok. "AND in place of belittling other organization's involvement in the Nexus."

    Not that she approves of AMEN. But still, that was kind of absurd on Shrike's part...

    Cessie doesn't seem nearly as amused as Vasquez and feels it to be rather improper for to act like that. Of course she was a soldier after all, not a politician.

    "Yes... let's vote for them all at once shall we? Unless someone like to go further into one of the issues." She says.

    Yes Vyrn, most everyone knew about the pretense. Even Ilpholin. But as soon as it was brought up out loud, it could no longer be glossed over. At least, not in Ilpholin's mind if she were to be any sort of leader.

    Choosing to ignore Shrike's head being in the... err... sand, as it were, she turns to Vasquez and nods using a shallow bow to accept the terms. "That will be more than sufficient, thank you. If nothing else, I'm glad that got accomplished today."

    She turns and nods to the rest of the group. "I wish you a good day ladies and gentlemen." Barring something extraordinary, Ilpholin will turn to exit properly and let the Council continue with its proceedings.

    "Why, Magtok. I never knew you were into that kind of thing. Whatever must your many loves think when they find your stash of recording discs?" Shrike raises an eyebrow and smirks at the Tin Man, not fased in the least. "And you know, I'm sure Brinika, the Applehills, Salix, Jamie and many others would love it if you dropped by. They get stronger every day, you know, and the last punching bag we had only lasted about eight hours before falling apart."

    She then turns her attention to Zee's comment, and nods. "I believe that the fast-response beacon network is worth investigating, at least, yes."

    Dipsnig shoots Magtok a look filled in no small part with disgust. Why the hell is everyone so lenient towards a scumbag who threatens children? Magtok should be locked up in his cave and left to rot there.
    Yes, if Magtok is quite done speculating about the sexual life of other Council members, here Dipsnig is tempted to add "for the lack of such on his own part" but resists, I suggest moving on to the issue of the warning beacon system. It sounds useful and cheap enough, and the risk of screwing something up is low.

    I agree with creating a beacon system. Tobias refrains from rolling his eyes, glaring at anyone, or facepalming. It's apparently too much to hope for that the Council can get anything done without bickering like little children, but he'd settle for just getting something done for once.

    "I see no problems with setting up a beacon system. I think that gives a clear majority on the issue." Grace observes. "The task of setting it up should probably fall to one of the more widespread organizations, though of course I'm sure the rest of us would be more than willing to lend support."

    "The other proposal, mass arming and training of the populace, I think, was met with substantial questions and concerns. As the person who proposed it is no longer here to back or answer them, might I suggest we discard the idea for now? If anyone wants to support it and push it forward, of course, I'd be happy to hear it out- but it might be best if we can respond to a more specific plan in this instance, which we no longer have."
