    Tobias is still reading Iphigenia at Aulis in the library. Yes, I know it's a really short play. But it's significant so there.

    Carrie sits down by him.
    She's quiet a long while before she speaks up.
    Technically, I guess I wasn't her mother.
    I mean genetically and all.
    She was Gen's kid. Gen and... however she was made, I don't know.
    Not that it mattered.

    Tobias closes the book and looks at the young goddess in concern. What's wrong, Carrie?

    Gen was... hell, Gen was never around, much less around for Amanda.
    Neither of them were really stable. I had to be the mother figure, the loving stepmom, the one who had time.
    And now my baby is dead in the Abyss.

    I miss Amanda, Tobias.
    I miss my baby.

    She draws her knees up to her chest.

    Amanda and her daughter got taken there somehow.
    I don't know how.
    My granddaughter got out 'cause she was lucky enough to find a decent soul down there...
    But it left its mark on her.

    And after all that, is it so wrong that when I look at the handful of demon prisoners I have in my realm, all I see is a message waiting to be written in limp bodies and dulled eyes?

    Wrong? Well... you want to lash out. Your baby got hurt and you couldn't save her. But Carrie, you need to listen to me because I've been down this road before. It's not your fault. It's not because you weren't strong enough, it's because you weren't in the right place at the right time. So what are you going to do, follow around all of your family at once? That's stupid. Yes, letting your kids have freedom means taking the risk that they're going to get hurt without you, but at some point you have to let them grow up and live a good life. You can't dwell on what could have been. Instead, think about what you're going to do next.

    I think I'll just stick with the message then.

    Lashing out sounds good right about now.
    Not just good, it sounds great.

    She shifts a little.

    That's your call to make. Just be sure you don't fall to the darkside or anything, because I don't know if I can like a Sith. He smiles at her, then leans back. All right, but maybe you want to stay here tonight. You can take your time to plan out your revenge tomorrow, since cold anger is less dangerous for yourself than hot, blind rage. I'll give you a choice: Either go find Chris or Sam or Angela or somebody to hang out with you and keep you from getting depressed and drunk or stay here with me and I'll tell you some old war stories. ... Or, if you want to get this over with, go get Matt.

    Tobias stands up and tries to hug Carrie again. You're welcome, kiddo. It's what I'm here for. He decides it wouldn't be prudent to mention that if anyone killed his kids, which includes Carrie, the message he would send them would be later referred to by archaeologists as an extinction level event.


    Sam is still talking with Dani and Karyana, but another plotclone can be found in the firing range.

    Sam is practicing quick draws with the Glock in the concealed holster at her back of her belt. After she goes through another magazine, she stops to smile at the death goddess.

    Hullo, dear. I can't complain. ... Are you all right? Sam sets her gun down and walks up to Carrie, looking concerned. It's the exact same expression Tobias had earlier, so for a moment Sam strongly resembles her brother.

    Sam finds an old but hilarious Abbott & Costello movie in black and white and puts it in. Then she sits down on the couch, very close to the goddess.
