Online Encounters (open!)

Post  mercurialMonster on Sat Feb 09, 2013 1:13 am

(just hop in, no need to ask~)

Your name is Jouket Lokrow, a Jadeblood with a passion for music, and you are uncommonly bored. Ordinarily you would solve this by chatting with your moirail, but she's currently busy; out on a mission from the Empress to eliminate undesirables. Unfortunate for you, as none of your other friends are online right now either. Eventually you settle for setting up an open 'room' on trollian-- this way, anyone else bored and looking or someone to talk to can find you without already knowing your handle. A neat little feature indeed. Maybe this will entertain you for a while.

You pause over your keyboard for a moment before typing up an introduction. Hopefully this will lure someone in.

harmoniousCroaker [HC] entered the chatroom
HC: H€llo +h€r€.
HC: I'm Jouk€+ Lokrow. I lik€ music, fudg€, croakb€as+s, and li+€ra+ur€.
HC: I DON'+ lik€ idio+s.
HC: I'm h€r€ b€caus€ m¥ moirail is ou+ on busin€ss and I'm BOR€D.
HC: so ma¥b€ com€ +alk +o m€ or som€+hing


Okay, so maybe that comes across as a little standoffish. But honestly, you're not sure how to behave otherwise. Maybe someone will ome talk to you anyway

Your name is Isolde Dokken, and this may be one of the worst nights of your short life, but you wouldn't tell anyone that. Stagdad was just culled to feed that monster at the bottom of the ocean; and the Empire has sent you one of those "Welcome" pamphlets, telling you about how the contribution of your psionics to the fleet would be a great addition, along with the usual hoofbeast shit about how every caste must contribute to the greater good...Blah...Blah...Blah.

Even though the Empire has basically screwed you over by taking away your chance to do anything productive with your life, it doesn't really matter anyways. Better you, than half the trolls that you know. Your quadrants are empty, a crowning achievement from acting like one of the biggest asshats on Alternia some nights.

It seems that Trollian has invented one of those 'open' message boards or something, and there's a poor sap on it waiting for someone to jump in. So you jump in.

You are just so bored. It doesn't look like you're going to get a response, so you're just about to go see what Frogmom is doing when Trollian pings. Oh! It looks like you've got a reply. What fun. You turn back towards your husktop and go to respond to the yellow text promising to relieve you of your dull mood.

HC: No wa¥, I lik€ and dislik€ +hings +oo!
HC: +his m€€+ing mus+ b€ fa+€


Wow, so that was painfully sarcastic. Your words are so caustic you nearly burn yourself. Ouch. And now your narrator is being sarcastic about the quality of your sarcasm! Will this cycle of biting wit never cease?!

HC: so how ar€ ¥ou doing +oda¥, Isold€?

Oh good, you're being considerably more polite. You don't want to snark your company away, after all. Then where would you be? The same place you are now, only alone, that's where.

You jump when the other troll responds to you, reading their message and quickly formulating a response in your head.

You lean back in your seat, startled, when Isolde responds. Holy shit, her lusus had been culled? How dreadful! That's why you keep Frogmom far, far away from the ocean in your swamp-based inland hive. The seadwellers didn't often come out here looking for food for the Empress' monstrous lusus.

You respond with a slightly more civil tone, taking the time to focus your energy on a small glass figure; destroying it to release some of the psionics. Sighing deeply, you rest your head on your hand and wait for him to reply.

HC: Wha+ of ¥ou?

You care for your moirail deeply, of course-- you'd relationship is so pale it could be described as "white"-- but her highblood temper and ludicrous risk taking can leave you a little exasperated.

Your first instinct is to offer advice, but you're not some sort of weird pale auspice. You don't need to fix everyone's relationships.

You should really just log off and take a long walk off a short cliff for all you're good for.

The scenario flute through your mind-- yourself a tortured cybercreature, your moirail a helpless onlooker-- and you feel a little sick. You couldn't bare it, you physically couldn't. But what would hurt her more, you wonder, seeing you strung up but alive, or for you to be dead? Or for you to break off your relationship entirely? You shake yourself-- it's unimportant. That won't happen to you.

HC: Oh d€ar. I s€€.
HC: I don'+ know wha+ I'd do.
HC: bu+ I und€rs+and ¥our poin+.
HC: I +ak€ i+, from +ha+ scenario, +ha+ ¥ou ar€ a psionic and hav€ caugh+ +h€ €mpr€ss' €¥€?


It's not hard to deduce. A yellowblood dealing with the Empire's "hoofbeast shit", under threat of being turned into a machine. All the clues are there for you to find.

You understand, as a fellow lowblood (though admittedly a little higher on the spectrum) the extent to which you are at the mercy of the empire. Thankfully you have no psychic abilities of your own to draw attention to yourself.
