apocalypseArisen [AA] opened private timeless bulletin board epil0gue.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~

AA opened memo on board epil0gue.


AA: welc0me t0 the ultimate meeting 0f the survival c0mmittee
AA: the 0rganizati0n in its present f0rm will s00n exhaust its functi0n
AA: simply put we either will survive the next stretch 0f time 0r we w0nt
AA: if we d0 n0t survive all 0ur planning c0mes t0 n0ught
AA: if we d0 then we will have neg0tiated 0ur largest threat
AA: and there is reas0n t0 believe that mere survival will n0 l0nger be 0ur task
AA: theref0re if any0ne has any questi0ns c0ncerns 0r suggesti0ns n0w is the time t0 bring them up

GA: I Do Not Feel Like I Understand My Role Within The Plan
AA: d0 y0u understand the specifics
GA: Yes
GA: Using Our Respective Frog Based Artifacts Forged From The Remains Of Royal Regalia Jade And I Are To Open A Portal Between Our Worlds
GA: One That Is More Stable Than The Connection Generated By A Scratch
GA: That Is Where I Lose The Thread Of The Plan However
GA: Do We Intend To Escape Into The Human Session In Order To Take Advantage Of Their Reward Alongside Them

AA: n0
AA: instead the fact that the c0urse y0u suggest w0uld be p0ssible
AA: c0mbined with the rage 0f 0ur m00n’s guardian
AA: will lead us t0 the t0ughest fight 0f 0ur lives

CG: I STILL DON’T GET WHY WE HAD TO PISS HIM OFF SO MUCH ANYWAY.
CG: IT’S LIKE WE’RE FUCKING ASKING TO FIGHT A FIRST GUARDIAN.

AA: we are
CG: YEAH, THAT FIGURES.
AA: as great as his p0wer is in a direct c0nfr0ntati0n an 0pp0nent like him is far m0re danger0us if given the time t0 think and plan
AA: 0nly by drawing him into c0mbat d0 we stand a chance 0f success
AA: it is a trial by fire 0f s0rts
AA: either we will pr0ve 0urselves w0rthy and survive
AA: 0r else die and be f0rg0tten
AA: n0thing new t0 any 0f us

CT: D --> There is something else
CT: D --> Something you are withholding from us

AA: there are many things
AA: s0me 0f y0u have been given inc0mplete inf0rmati0n
AA: m0st 0f y0u in fact
AA: a few were even f00led c0mpletely
AA: this is because kn0wing the full extent 0f 0ur plan in advance w0uld have caused y0u t0 behave differently than you n0rmally w0uld
AA: time is s0mething like a canvas y0u see
AA: 0nce y0u painted s0mething it is n0t mutable
AA: but a blank area h0lds many p0ssibilities
AA: any 0f which are viable until it is filled in
AA: the main task 0f the subc0mmittee 0f time has been t0 engineer 0ne such blank sp0t
AA: carefully kept free 0f predestinai0n and left un0bserved
AA: it will be a m0ment 0f decisi0n in which 0ur fates will be sealed 0ne way 0r the 0ther
AA: y0u will need t0 trust us until that m0ment c0mes
AA: i h0pe that is 0kay

CT: D --> I trust you 100% my dear
AA: h0w l0ng have y0u waited f0r a legitimate use f0r that percentage
CT: D --> So long
CT: D --> You don’t even know

AT: uHHH, fEFERI AND I HAVE BEEN TALKING TO THE HORRORTERRORS,
AT: lIKE OUR PART OF THE PLAN HAS BEEN,
AT: aND WE ARE HAVING A HARD TIME GETTING THEM TO FOLLOW YOUR ORDERS,
AT: aRE YOU SURE THEY CAN’T COME AND FIGHT HIM WITH US,

AA: they w0uld be 0f little use against 0ur adversary
AA: c0ntinue t0 have them evacuating the area
AA: except f0r th0se wh0se presence is abs0lutely necessary f0r the 0ther part 0f the plan t0 w0rk
AA: i am sure that between the tw0 0f y0u it will be manageable

CC: I don’t know about th)(at!
CC: They can get pretty stubborn!38(

AA: certainly they w0uld n0t refuse their fav0rite tangle buddies
CC: I GU-----ESS YOU’R------E RIG)(T!!!
CC: Alt)(oug)( i still wis)( we could get Jade into it wit)( us!

AT: mE TOO,
GG: sorry guys!
GG: but i have something else to do
GG: and also i cannot find bec anywhere! D:

CG: YEAH, WE’RE STILL FUCKING DOOMED.
AA: y0ur lusus will n0t be required f0r this part 0f the missi0n
AA: he is 0kay and y0u will be reunited exactly when y0u need t0 be

GG: well thats good!
EB: and is there anything else you need us to do?
AG: Yeah, are you suuuuuuuure I shouldn’t just kill them?
AG: I would ask permission first and everything!

AA: n0
AA: there are very g00d reas0ns why the humans must n0t ascend t0 the g0d tier

TG: trust her on this one
TG: it has to do with timing
TG: aradia is the best at timing
TG: the best
TG: for reasons that will become clear soon

EB: that’s fine.
EB: to be honest, i didn’t really want to get stabbed that much anyway!

AA: there d0nt appear t0 be any m0re questi0ns ab0ut the plan
AA: and theref0re n0 need f0r m0re discussi0n
AA: h0wever
AA: it is p0ssible we will n0t see each 0ther again
AA: therefore it w0uld be appr0priate t0 say 0ur final g00dbyes
AA: just in case

CT: D --> Aradia, I. . .
CT: D --> Oh, fudgcicles, I can’t find the words!
