Actually, what I was to believe was that usually these things come with a price. And I assume that in order to see these moments you presented to us, we would need to answer a question of yours or something before we can even begin.

Sorry for the misunderstanding. Though I do believe we may have questions later if we still want to do that. what do you say, my companion?

I don't know if it's you I fear, but I think I am more discomforted about how large our reputation has gotten today and how far it has spread across the Multiverse, and how many hidden people may be watching and hearing out every move despite my efforts of trying to keep us out of trouble with a low profile. I don't know if it is a good thing or a bad thing.

I am someone who is trying to stay neutral and let the universe do its own thing while we stay out of trouble while my partner is more trying to be a hero. With our current reputation I feel I can't change it to what I want at this point.

That's besides the point let's make our decision on what moment we want to see
No. 894921 ID: 206f56

It’s just how I’ve always rolled partner. Being a hero and trying to do the right thing is just how I roll. I want to be an example and show people that they’re is a good way. I know there are shades of grey in this world but I just want to be the best I can be for others as well as my own sake.

I don’t really understand why people like this guy assume you would be afraid of him, I’m certainly not. I’ve always thought it really obnoxious when people try to do that.

And you already know my stance, I say we check the end.

No. 895810 ID: ae9b99

As for me, I'm simply observing.

Though I'm surprised the prime version of Absolution is here in such a dangerous timeline. Something big and serious must be happening in this specific timeline if you yourself are getting yourself involved, Prime, instead of staying hidden. And I don't think the death of this timeline's Absolution is your main reason to be here, though it might have helped play into your decision to come here.

I will say, there are some pretty powerful dangerous individuals in play in this timeline that has me concerned for your safety, Prime. I'd prefer you'd stay hidden like you were, but there must be something here that had you come here out of hiding, right?

No. 896005 ID: ae9b99

Seems both you and Logan is keeping secrets from each other. Logan not saying what he is going to do to tolerate your presence, while you keeping secrets on the rules all absolutions must follow, withholding info from Logan. I hope that doesn't lead to uncoordination between you two. perhaps you should tell him to begin with whom you are talking to.

No. You aren’t.

I can’t even call you a god. You haven’t earned it.

Logan. I only get one chance at this, to say the right thing. To do the right thing. All I can ask of you is you try to do the same. I don’t know what you are thinking right now, and I can’t even imagine the pain you must feel and I won’t pretend to understand it either. All I ask is that you live for the others who know you and love you. That you go into this not thinking only of what you have lost, but what you still have. If nothing else, think on that because they are out there, even if you don’t know it, they cherish you. And they want you to live.

The fact of everything this sometimes we aren’t strong enough to handle everything life throws at us. I often find myself thinking back, back and my biggest regret is never being strong enough. I was, and am, not strong enough to take on everything that life and fortune could throw at me. I know that, even still, down the road there will be things that can bring me to my knees. Whether it has been something that's happened to me, or some choice I will have to make, and reap the consequences of. And I could never, and cannot, guarantee that I would have someone to help me.

But, I also know that there is time. For as long as we are alive, there will always be time. We compose ourselves, we can think about what to do next, and we can see if there was anyone we could reach out to. And if we couldn't? Or can't? Then that's okay, We’ll rest a bit more, and think a little bit more, and then try again, because we can do that. Because I want be strong for everyone who needs me, because I don't know when I'll need them, and I don't know when they'll need me.

Life will always been treacherous, but you don't need strength or brains to weather through. All you need is thought and time, and for as long as you breathe, you have all the worlds worth of it. Then, everything else falls into place.

*is talking to Prime while my partner is talking to Logan*

Thanks for the offer to talk to Logan. Really, I can't think of anything to say to Logan, but I'm sure my partner does. Besides, me talking to him will only waste more time than my partner is doing for you both. I'll talk to you instead while my partner talks to Logan if you don't mind

I'll say this to you, Prime. My partner may have misgivings on the way you do things, but me, I couldn't really care. You do you and have fun, as long you be careful, Prime.

I on the other hand am just trying to help the person I am guiding stay out of trouble despite my partner's wishes to do other things. I don't want to get the person I am guiding any more involved with any of this crazy war any way I can than they already are. But you can bet if anyone tries to hurt the person I am guiding, I will do everything I can to protect them

that said, the reason I am here is to observe, so I can get a better understanding of this dangerous world, and to see what people are dangerous and stay clear of or what people could actually help save the life of the person I am trying to protect and potentially be our ally in escaping. The person I am guiding is mortal after all.

That said, I have a question:

You said Demoria is like any other god that has chosen and wanted to stay here while others left. ([i]though I thought she was a demigod, not a god.[i]) That implies that there are other gods still lingering around here doing their thing. I want to know out of safety from the person I am protecting what gods that you know of is still hanging out in this universe. Whom among those gods should I worry about, and whom might pose no threat or might help guide the person I'm guiding to safety?

I already know where Dreamwalker, Essence, and Andrew stands on whether they oppose us or not in our quest, so no need to talk about them if you want. Really, I want to know if we should worry about gods I don't know much about like Demoria, or any other gods. The name Lollipop also comes to mind for some reason from the back of my memory.

Well Lolipop is just a name I've heard. I do not even know if this being is even risking their neck in this dimension. nonetheless, I'll keep my eyes open for that one.

Nifelus. I wonder if they are sort of like a grim reaper. I'd feel he would be right at home in this universe with how deadly it is. If Gaia tends to see Nifelus often to hide, I am hoping she will give Nifelus the good word about us so he won't see us as an enemy. I'll leave Nifelus alone.

seeing as you gave me some info, I'll return the favor:

speaking of Gaia, we did see something that looked like Gaia helping out the cult member Rosalia (Clara's sister) which made no sense to us since Gaia was incredibly helpful to us and immediately after, we saw visions of her seeking revenge against us with Rosalia. The assumption we came up with is that there may be an imposter Gaia running around. Or perhaps someone, or something was manipulating our vision to have us see Gaia helping Rosalia instead of something else. I'm hoping that our assumption is correct. More research may be required on that matter before jumping to conclusions. But if there is a fake Gaia, I am hoping this imposter does not make a deal with Nifelus to come after us. We'll have prepare for the worst and do more research to confirm what is going on. Make of that info what you will.

I know you and Logan have to be focused on your mission, so I think I'll leave it at that and wish you luck. But if you have any questions to ask us, I'll do my best to answer within reason, Prime. Just be careful that Root is manipulative, and may try to get into Logan's head to lead him off the path. Just treat Logan right, and I'm sure he'll stick with your goals and you'll both be fine.

I know that we have failed. We have failed in many different ways. I won’t lie to you about that. But if you want a tl;dr version fine. Maybe you’ll understand it better.

If you do this half-cocked and half-assed, you might as well go in naked for all the good it will do you. And if you go in and get yourself killed you’re going to be letting a lot of people down and possibly dooming a lot of people in the process, because you are far more important than you seem realize.

Let me break this down, we actually know there is a good chance you will succeed and get away scot free. But have you planned out for what happens after? You are going to be dealing with someone who is just as charismatic and will more than like lie, or worse, tell the truth, to try and hurt you or get you on his side. What then? What will you do? That’s what I need to know, because damnit son, I want you to live and live well.

Tell me a joke. A real one with actual humor and an attempt at camaraderie.

Before you say anything I’m sure you are thinking “who is this insect to demand anything from me!” Well here’s the deal Prime, I don’t trust you. Your mannerism just radiates cold-blooded contempt for everything that isn’t you or on your side. So if we don’t trust you, how can you trust anything we say to you? There has to be some ground between us because like it or not, we have some common interests, one of which is keeping Logan alive. So, got any jokes to tell over a beer? Maybe some trail mix and nuts?
No. 896277 ID: d491b4

In fact ill tell one first, just a show of good faith.

A man is standing in a public urinal. He unzips his pants and is about to do his business and a midget walks in with a step-ladder the midget brings the step-ladder over to the next urinal by the man and looks down at the man’s junk.
Thoroughly uncomfortable the man try’s to ignore this but then the midget says in an awed voice
“Sir, if you don’t mind my saying, your balls are the biggest and best I’ve ever seen.”
“Oh, uh- thank you.” The man says, now extremely uncomfortable.
“May I have the honor of... touching them?”
Not wanting to be rude or offend the midget the man agrees.
The midget then readjusts his step-ladder behind the man and reaches out and forcefully grabs the man’s balls. The midget then looks up at him and says
“Alright, now fork over your wallet or I jump!”

Seriously? I’m close-minded? Your a god. If anyone has a one track mind it’s you. I’m sorry Prime, but it’s honestly amazing you don’t see any irony in your statement. When you only look at the big picture, you miss a lot of the tiny details.

And to be honest your joke was quite clear. You’re the doctor, Absolution is the father and Gaia and the possible spawn represents the mother and child. And what’s worse is this shows just how untrustworthy you really are. It’s clear all you care about Ian obedience and loyalty to your cause. But loyalty must be earned, it can’t be bought or won through fear. If you only seek to gain power over everyone what separates you from anyone else in this world?

It just makes me sad. Everyone let’s the world change them, and then they all try to shape it to their will. But being less than a God (and that’s god with capital G, as in truly Omnipotent and all powerful, so you don’t count), they can’t. I feel so sorry for you, I really do. I hope you find happiness and harmony within yourself.

Then he’ll probably say “what so funny? Did you just forget where you are?”

“The situation is the reason why I am laughing. Something like this happened to me in the past, someone was holding me above an abyss.”

Gotta say Root I’m with Logan on this one. You phrase it like he was Prometheus giving fire to man and your spear was the vulture who ate his liver everyday. But in reality he was more like Zeus than anything. He could be pretty selective of who he gave out magic to. Before you say anything akin to “you aren’t worthy so how are you using it?” That’s true you probably aren’t worthy of it, but you have to look at it this way, just because someone earns something doesn’t it can’t be stolen. What you did, at least in my eyes, was steal his power, and blame him for allowing it to happen.

Well for one thing, you gotta stop thinking in the long term. I know you are the kind of guy who has seen all possible outcomes and all possible futures, but when you look at the horizon that much you can forget to look two feet in front of you. A death now could have monumental consequences in the future you understand.

As for the nuclear power energy scenario again, you gotta look at it from the outsiders view. You may think it was justified or that you are saving the world. But in the short term you ARE stealing magic to serve your own goals. To use the nuclear power metaphor, it’s more like you are using such a destructive force yourself while also chastising the creator of it. You can’t have your cake and eat it too, and to someone like Logan, your ends do not justify your means.

Uh Root, not trying to be mr obvious and judgmental here but maybe the reason it was so catastrophic is that your group literally takes in any psychopath with a pulse each with their own goals in mind. For some you’re probably just a stepping stone. Just saying, you already have a pretty loose grip as it is.

As for what Logan wants, well revenge is obvious but if thst were all he wanted he would have just killed you and have done with it. So it’s clear he’s keeping you alive for at least one more purpose.

Logan, I accept your goal of bringing back your father, but if you want to resurrect him you need to help Ana. You need to teach her to master her as you were taught.

The Rage Within has broken free. AJ is incomplete as long as it’s out, he can’t mature until it returns and becomes a part of him again.

As for Root, to be honest all I see is someone who has a very flawed way thinking. The choice of his life I leave to you. Just know that if you choose to kill him he won’t go down easily, I wouldn’t be surprised if he had another card up his sleeve.

That all depends on you, Root. Do you want to die for your cause as a martyr? Or do you want to be the leader they see you as. In the end it all rests on you. I really have no say in any of it, But believe me when I say this...

I forgive you.

After seeing what true evil really is, I can’t really call you evil anymore, I’m fact, I’m sorry for you

I thought so.

Keep holding your mind steady, I still want to talk with you. Listen, do you know why I chose to forgive you? Because I realize that there is nothing to gain by holding on to hate of you. You have done many acts that can be seen as unforgivable, but at the very least, I forgive you.

But it seems you are repentant, you think you deserve every bit of pain that comes your way. Something that continues to stand out in my own mind when I think of you is your name, not Vladislav Dragomir, but Root of Ash. Because it’s not a name, it’s an idea. You symbolize an idea of a perfect and reformed world, a world you can see as a bettter one yes? Well, I’ve been thinking, if you wish to stand as an idea, something to live up to, then this is another test of those principles. If I have the capacity to forgive you, then you also have the capacity to do the same. Could you represent a better idea for how men should act? Or do you let them follow their whims and only let them chase a shadow of the idea you were?

You can stand for a truly better world Root, If I can forgive you and let you live, you can do the same. You can tell Lorences people to stand down, even if Logan can’t forgive you, you can still show your remorse for how things got to where they are. Sorrow isn’t weakness. You can do it. All you need is thought and time.

In all honesty Root, I don’t know anymore. The more I look at Logan I know that I still love him. But this Logan is not my husband. The Logan I knew was a good man, he never tortured people, and he never let his mind be so filled with vengeance... I just want a few words with him most of all.

But at the same time, I forgive you, and I don’t wish any harm on you either, no one deserves to be tortured, no one deserves this. Not even you.

I want both of you to live. But what is the key to our happiness, and our freedom Root? How do we gain? If Logan dies, I grieve for the memories lost of a better man and Absolution Prime might even turn against you. If you die, your groups frenzy only continues and you become a martyr. There is no good ending, there are only worse ones.

If you want my advice Root, give Logan what he wants. The truth and an answer. And here is a bit of truth right now, even if Absolution doesn’t return, then you can’t afford to be just a figure head anymore. You are The Root of Ash, Vlad, you need to be a leader, you need to be better for YOUR people.

You damn fool. In a perfect world both you and him could live in harmony. Secondly, are you aware that killing him will not remove the presence of his god? There is a greater version of him that watches over him. Killing Logan will only incur it’s wrath.

A leader does what’s best for ALL. By killing him, how many more of your people are damned? Also this just occurred to me, but what happens if your moment comes and your still hanging out over the abyss? You kill him and then what? You still die.

I know I’m asking a lot. But to me, a leader does what’s best for his people but always treats an enemy with respect. I may disagree with almost everything you do, but I’ve always respected you. You can be better, for everyone, even your enemies.

Root! If you do this! You start a whole new war! Do you honestly think Logan is the ONLY one?! There are others and they are devoted to the REAL Absolution. And they will not be a curteous as he is! This group is more like a crusade, they blindly follow their god because they know they are already absolved of sin. Is that what you are? I forgive you so you can sin again?! No!

Please see reason! If he dies, then you will have directly created the kind of world you fear, one where not only magic runs wild but religious zealotry as well! Tell them to stop! For the sake of this world!

The wolves operate in pack tactics, no doubt there are more nearby. I hate to say this but you don’t have enough man power or firepower to take this one. They won’t kill Root, like you said, he’s their best bargaining chip. Pull out for now, but be ready to negotiate or attack, and probably sooner than you would expect. I don’t know who the Grey Wolf is at the moment, but he may not be above selling Root to the highest bidder. You may need to do more than save him from the Wolves, but also anyone else who takes him should they sell him off.
No. 900095 ID: ae9b99

Well, I think I should say this, you should be aware that someone, specifically a little girl, the same one who was in the trial trying to get Matilda killed is using Root's kidnapping, and this stalemate as a distraction to have one of the wolves, specifically Erik Skallagrimsson to send a note to the Grey Wolf. She says her intention is to try to take over the cult by manipulating someone in power so that she doesn't get targeted. Currently Erik said he was going to be in a sparring match with a friend while this stalemate is going on. Does this help you in anyway, Lorence?
No. 900097 ID: ae9b99

Also, she said she is heading to the bunker town saying she has much to do and little time to do so if you wish to confront her, or have someone sent over there.

Do not underestimate her intelligence just because she is a child. She did almost fool you all into getting Matilda guilty after all...

If agents are being sent, might be best to make it some of your stronger spies. But keep the number of people sent low. higher number of people means higher rate of detection. And detected people means a damaged and traumatized Root.


it seems like you are a man who needs proof judging by what you are hearing is only a conspiracy theory. I'll project a quick visual of what happened as proof as it is the only thing possible for us to do. It is up to you to believe it or not.

nonetheless, If you are sending men, have some of them look for Erik.
No. 900169 ID: 1127ed

Erik is a high ranking pack member but nowhere near the level of Root as a bargaining chip. He can be more agreeable than that but you will need to show you are capable of honor.

As for the surprise attack, it’s too much of a gamble. The wolves would be in their element and there are more of them than you. It might be wiser to send someone to do reconnaissance than anything but not to attack.

First chance you get, leave and get work done. Though it obviously won't be easy. I don't think a simple walk in the forest far from the safe zone, or judging you is the only reason why he's here.

Really if you intended for Root to be killed or kidnapped by the wolves, you would have lead your team away from the radio tower during the search in the first place. Plus you did give root a gun to defend himself so...

Not only that you never had the opportunity to contact the wolves to kidnap Root. And you have witnesses to prove that. After your meeting, you went to the party with lots of people seeing you, went to the balcony with deadbeat, Clara, and root's sister witnessing you, you were you're old prison with Clara witnessing you there, you ordered Betty to let Laura know you wanted to talk to her with Betty witnessing you, you were busy kidnapping Anastasia and her partner with Clara's sister witnessing you, which afterwards the Ambassador teleported you to his mansion which he also witnessed you there, Cera witnessed you with Felafaf in her dimension, until finally you're at this moment. Basically you have an alibi with people who can vouch for you. You have been monitored by at least one person throughout your busy schedule.

Also you may want to prove that you want to better Root's people's lives. For instance, did you heal Clara with the needle of life given to you? You can announce that you healed her to prove your good intentions. That is assuming you healed her.

... well, from what I can tell, it seems like Ana is not the only one suffering a lot here.

One main thing I notice that is one of a big (not huge) concern to me was what I didn't notice: I expected to see a certain someone make an appearance during the resolution to the kidnaping, and yet they didn't show up. It could be the person I was expecting couldn't find where Root and Logan was in, or actually showed up in the moments before the resolution (the part that is inaccessible to us, or forgot to search for them... or worse: that person could have either gotten into trouble on the way to Logan and Root, or betrayed us, or abandoned us. Thats all I have to say on that matter.

I have a suspicion on whom Lorence is referring to on helping get Ana outta this universe to start a new life. We'll have to do more research before we make our final decision on whether Ana should stay or go.

But for now, after that discussion with Lorence, and telling our intentions with helping Ana survive, I think searching for Ana is no longer a top priority. It is a priority still and we'll have to avoid him, but not a top priority as he seems to have other things happening with him. Plus I'm sure his girlfriend will help convince him not make killing Ana a top priority (at least I hope so).

besides, the wolves is most likely Lorence's biggest concern as they have kidnapped Root. We'll have to decide what we'll have to suggest Ana do concerning these wolves as I still do not know their opinion on Ana.

Rozalia and Logan knows each other if I remember correctly. I'll have to think about what that means for Ana.

Absolution prime and his followers might be a problem if he summons them to start a crusade, but it might only happen if anything dire happens. They seem to be one of Prime's last resort if Logan dies for example, or betrays Prime. They seem too preoccupied with Root and his men than focus on us at the moment.
No. 904891 ID: ae9b99

I have a feeling whom Rozalia and Lorence are trying to stop from a vehicle is Anastasia and her old man. seeing as they are trying not to hurt one of their targets, and yet Lorence pulled a gun on Anastasia, it has to be Anastasia's partner. interesting. That is assuming those are whom they are referring to.

I'm wondering whom the creatures that destroyed Felafaf's life is during her previous relationship. I'll have to keep that in mind. Also, something in the conversation Lorence had with Felafaf sparked his paranoia enough to go after Ana unless she left the dimension.

Logan mentioned getting something done before confronting Root at the party to help tolerate Prime's presence. I wonder what it could be.

I like wolves because well.... Let me just say Anthony is...different from other men. He changes when we are... Alone together, and I enjoy it very much. He also changes into an Alpha beast when we are...alone together. Wolves just are amazing to me.

I like that idea. Everyone should try to find the golden lining on anything that seems like a bad situation.

May I ask why, you Amelia, don’t like Delilah and what caused you to not like her in the first place?

I see. What do the rest of you guys think of Delilah? Do you think she will be a good ruler?

Yes and no. A good leader listens to people who support her but should also listen to people who criticize them. How else would they become better leaders? Amelia shouldn’t feel bad for having an opinion if it’s valid criticism.

I don’t feel differently, is having you around like a shield? And how would we find out who has the curator anyways?

Opinions and tensions regarding this are clearly higher than we had thought originally.
