    In the face of the Enormous Explosion (nice job of that by the way) Ceres has time to do only two things. From his own mind he taps into Reverie one last time, crafting a note from nothingness that is now rolled up and stuck into the neck of his flask. The second is a tiny manifestation, teleporting the flask and its contents somewhere else.

    Somewhere safe.

    The irradiant energies tear at him like nothing he's ever experienced before. Each moment is a new agony, each molecule of his being converted into another pain bearing nerve until the sensation is all he can ever remember. From deep within him, two thoughts occur almost simultaneously.

    The first is that perhaps he never left the Holder of Reverie. That this whole charade was just a dream designed tear any hope from him before beginning his torture in earnest.

    But that means I've been with her this whole time, and that's all I really wanted in the first place. Despite not having a true form anymore, the inferno that ravages his conciousness twists into what could almost be called a brief smile, if there was anyone there to see it.

    That's right Ceres, smile for the crowd. The curtain is closing after all, and this is your last hurrah.

    All across the Nexus, and in some places outside, there is a forgetting of sorts. There are no tears, no cliche howls of pain as links are irreparably broken. Nine minds just simply... forget. There is no Ceres. If asked they wouldn't be able to tell you who came up with the idea to band together.

    Perhaps the most effected is Ceres' only true brother, Rocid. Forevermore the chaotic one will feel he has to commit acts of madness and mayhem, never knowing why. Never remembering the day he was created, cloned from his brother's mind and made to be the Hyde to his Jeckyl. Never realising his task is done, and there are no scales to balance anymore.

    For anyone in plots run by me, know that I always tailor solutions to those in the plot. The answer may not be obvious, but it's there, and doable by the displayed abilities of the present characters. If you need help or hints, I'll try to be available to provide them.

    "Really?"

    Mine didn't know that. He thought humans were alright. They are pretty ugly, but Mine didn't realize that they were all thieves and ingrates. He thought that they were alright, but...but he doesn't know as much of humans as Azurelle does. Could she be telling the truth?

    "Don't they have any redeeming qualities? They seemed nice sometimes..."

    The human slaves, Mine means. He hated the slavers. They were never kind. Never.

    Object and Slave are corralled into their cell, then. Toy is suffering from Azurelle's abuse in such a way that it should be barely noticeable. She is attempting to hide her pain from Azurelle under a soft feigned smile, inspecting her new scars and bruises to determine if they should be paid considerable heed or next to none.

    And she comforts herself with one thought and one thought alone.

    Someday, Toy... Someday...

    But for now, what is there to do but bid your time? You're outmatched. Patience.

    Ugh! A prole (and an insolent one, at that)! Too bad this guy isn't the target. Warsh would have no inner quarrel over doing him in. Since that isn't the case, might as well play to his pretentious nature (or sarcastic nature; it is difficult to discern).

    "I'm a mediator by profession. Was called out here to settle a dispute between two tribes a good distance from these parts. Those brutes took so dang long reconcile, that I missed the only boat heading back to civilization over there for three stupid weeks. So I'm stuck walkin' back."

    "Yes. They are very good at polishing things, and tend to be stronger than the average elf, so they're good labourers." Elezibethele believes that humans should be slaves to elves, or maybe executed. "And they can be nice, they're just inferior." Also, Durk Fallow (the slave trader Mine was bought from) uses gnomes and ogres more than humans in the slave pens; most humans work in the pet shop part.

    Spoiler
    Show
    Object and Slave will be locked into the cell, though Azurelle doesn't lock them into the manacles. It's pitch dark without the door open; there's nowhere for light to enter except around the door frame. And that's extinguished too when Azurelle douses the torches before she climbs back into bed. Toy's ankle will be roughly grabbed and a manacle snapped around it, the other end attached to one of the four-poster bed's four posts. Azurelle will then re-pull the curtain, being as rough as before and taking advantage of the existing bruises.

    Also, the bruises should be predominantly minor, though painful. Azurelle doesn't want to kill Toy. At the moment, anyway.

    Judging by the way he rockets into the sky, Percival's ability to fly is clearly aided by magic. The demonazi soars up, bursting through a thin cloud into the bright sun. The light warms them pleasantly, and Percival takes off over the rolling, vaporous hills.

    Percy tries to adjust Eericka so he can hold her up properly. Legs on one arm, shoulders on the other. "Does this look like a ceiling to you?" He asks loudly, quite mirthful. The demonazi banks to the left, dipping closer to the clouds, wingtips whipping up white trails in their wake.

    "Ah, feuds." The barkeep says, in the tone of one who at least thinks they're imparting some bit of pithy wisdom. Reaching under the counter, he pulls out a guestbook and makes a great show of checking it, despite the fact that there's clearly no-one about. In fact, if Warsh manages to get a peak, he'll see that the only thing written in the book are the crossed-out, misspelled names of guests who wisely left. "Yooou... He draws the word out for a moment, mulling over the money versus the odds of Warsh causing trouble. ...would be in luck. We've got one room left. It's our best room though, so it's a bit pricy. One gold for a three night stay, with breakfast provided. No lunches or dinners though."

    Well outside the Hamlet, Javert looks through it with a set of binoculars. The lenses have been blackened slightly to avoid reflection, and he scans the area to judge how many people live there, and about what tech-level.

    Duly noted. Mine hates slavers across the board. He doesn't discriminate based on species, color, creed, or gender. They're all spineless parasites in his mind.

    Humans are good at polishing things. That's the honest truth, I'd agree, what with the fixation on gold and other shiny (Ooo, shiny!) objects.

    "But...but..."

    Mine can't defend the humans. He doesn't know them well enough to say that they're not dumb, culture-less cowards. Maybe they're better off enslaved. Can't cause too much harm that way. Was that the reason for all of this?

    "If they are so degenerate, then why are they still around? Shouldn't they have died off by now?"

    Survival of the fittest and all that. ... Mine's mind wanders... Are there any humans alive that aren't enslaved or in the service of another race? Mine hasn't encounter even one of those kind...


    [Hermitage of Dalachrech - Azurelle]

    Toy doesn't even put up as much of a resistance against Azurelle this time, though she continues to make her protest clean and clear. She allows the hate and the pain to flow over her, to seep and soak into her every pore, caressing her soul, corrupting every atom it brushes against.

    Focus. Endure. Patience. It will come to pass. Believe in it, and it will come to pass...

    Object and Slave pat the abrasive stone walls as they attempt to find their way about frigid, pitch black chamber. The rock scrapes against their skin, the cold spreading throughout their weak, little bodies. Shivering, they eventually come to rest with their backs pressed against the door of their prison, cuddling up to each other for warmth. Object cries herself to sleep while Slave does her best to comfort her, humming a soft, sweet melody that their mother sang so many years ago. After so many years, the memory still remains. That was the only token their mother left them after she was sold off to another owner. A memento. A gift. A promise. Something the slavers couldn't deprive them of.

    For now, they had each other, but there's no telling how long that will last. Their luck will eventually run out. How long until Azurelle decides to indulge herself in executing one of them? How long until she takes it too far? They will always have their memories. Azurelle can't steal that from them... Can she?

    [Hermitage of Dalechrech - Percival]

    Such a beautiful description of a truly divine sight. Well done.

    Unfortunately, Eericka cannot enjoy this quick jaunt through the heavens with us. Her eyes shut tight as can be. She's attempting to hug onto Percival for dear life. She's praying under her breath and hyperventilating like one possessed.

    I'm going to bet that Percy can find some way to convince her to open her eyes, though.

    -------
    [Riv's Hamlet]

    One gold piece? One gold piece! Gosh that's expensive! That's way more than Warsh is paid per fifteen-minute time period! Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if Warsh earns one gold piece every two months. Gold is an inordinately precious commodity back where Warsh is from.

    Lucky for him that this is a business trip. He can probably convince The Operative to reimburse him.

    "Gee! Breakfast and a room! I knew I did myself a favor stopping by this fine establishment. As for lunches and dinners, I can just come out here and order 'em, right?"

    Money. Everyone has a price.

    "In short, I'd love the room. Here's the cash for the expenses."

    Warsh digs deep into one of his pockets and fishes out an enormous gold coin minted in Alexandria in the days of yore.

    "That should cover it. Also, how much would it be for dinner? I'm just dying to sample some of your exquisite cuisine."

    I guess that Warsh plans on boring the guard trailing him to death (and then stealing his shoes for good measure).

    Riv's Hamlet- Outside

    Well, that depends. If Javert is in the same timeline as Warsh, it's just about dusk. Otherwise... *flips coin* night. By the looks of it the town has recently suffered some sort of disturbance, the giant cast iron gate lying on the ground a few feet from where it was torn from the hinges, a single armored guard standing by the gate. Two more guards patrol the walls, completing a full circuit every five minutes.

    Riv's Hamlet- Inside

    The bartender pauses for a moment, shocked by actually getting the ludicrous sum he named, before quickly snatching up the golden coin. That's as much money as he sees in a year, never mind a month. Out here, where inflation and technology have yet to venture, gold is still worth a whole hell of a lot.

    "Ah, yes, very glad to have you here, dinner will be, er- Another pause as the crooked inkeep thinks furiously. Should he charge the normal rate? After all, Warsh has already given him quite a lot of money, maybe he shouldn't push his luck. But then again, Warsh is clearly in possession of plenty of money, so... Maybe a full silver? .. five copper."

    Riv's Hamlet - Outside

    Javert frowns and collects his things before heading to the other side of the Hamlet, towards the end that is burned out. He stays well away from the place and slips from shadow to shadow to keep from being noticed. Hopefully by the time he gets there, it'll be darker.

    [Riv's Hamlet- Inside]

    If Warsh gets his way, this arrogant little man might find himself in a rut where he'll need all of the funding Warsh has supplied him with just to get by, lamentably. It all depends on how vital Excelsior Tech. and Riv are to the dwindling population of this already well-established community.

    Coppers. 5 coppers. Warsh doesn't carry copper pieces with him. What? He's not a DnD-based character! Instead, Warsh will simply produce another gold coin from his pocket and whack it with the nearest available sharp knife! If he has to, he'll as for one. He'll then hand the chunk of gold which broke off of the main piece to the barkeep.

    "So, anything interesting going on it town recently? Know what the weather will be like tomorrow? Can't be leaving if it is going to rain, you know."

    But if Warsh leaves, the bartender won't be able to drain him of anymore lucre! That would just be oh so horrible, wouldn't it?

    Such a beautiful description of a truly divine sight. Well done.

    Unfortunately, Eericka cannot enjoy this quick jaunt through the heavens with us. Her eyes shut tight as can be. She's attempting to hug onto Percival for dear life. She's praying under her breath and hyperventilating like one possessed.

    I'm going to bet that Percy can find some way to convince her to open her eyes, though.
    Well thanks.

    I have to wonder what you're implying about dear, innocent Percival. The demonazi merely leans closer to Eericka, saying, "Eericka, open your eyes."

    An instant later, Percy hits an updraft and gains altitude, leaving the pair of them with a weightless feeling. The demon arcs around the trunk of a cumulonimbus, one of those gaseous towers that stretches thousands of feet into the empty air. As Percy brushes the side, the pair of them will likely get speckled with droplets of dew.

    But for the Infernal's voice, all is still. Not even the wind makes a sound here.
