AC: :33 < youre not flushed for feferi
AC: :33 < because youre still flushed for aradia!
AC: :33 < and the whole reason you k33p saying you n33d more time with feferi is because you think if you spend enough time with her youll get over aradia and actually become flushed for her!
AC: :33 < i cant believe it, vriska was right!
AC: :33 < youre honestly trying to write aradia out of your life!!
TA: fuck you!

AC: :33 < feferi deserves to know the truth about how you actually f33l about her!
AC: :33 < and aradia deserves to stay in your life!
AC: :33 < because she probably still cares about you, and you shouldnt just try to ignore her!!

AA: the reas0n a timeline bec0mes d00med in the first place is because it diverges fr0m the events that cause its 0wn existence
AA: the events that led t0 the creati0n 0f 0ur 0wn universe are s0 tightly scripted that even the slightest divergence will result in the entire sequence being disrupted
AA: s0 any deviati0n fr0m the alpha timeline is incapable 0f persisting because it st0ps itself fr0m ever being created
AC: :33 < ugh who cares about the stupid alpha timeline!!
AC: :33 < whats so great about it anyway??
AA: its the way things have t0 g0
AA: thats all there is t0 it
AC: :33 < well, why do we have to follow the alpha timeline?
AC: :33 < why cant we be a
AC: :33 < a beta timeline or something??
AA: thats n0t h0w it w0rks
AA: h0nestly just the term beta timeline is really insulting 0n s0 many levels i d0nt kn0w where t0 begin
AC: :33 < what??
AC: :33 < how is it insulting?
AA: d0 y0u think i havent tried nepeta
AA: d0 y0u h0nestly think i havent tried t0 change the way things g0
AA: d0 y0u really think i want t0 be fucking dead
AA: ive tried t0 fix things
AA: but i cant
AA: n0ne 0f us can
AC: :33 < i dont believe that!
AC: :33 < i think psyche is giving us a way to change things for the better!
AA: there isnt a way
AA: even the p0wer 0f all twelve denizens c0mbined isnt en0ugh t0 reverse the effects 0f d00m 0n a timeline
AA: im s0rry t0 say this wh0le quest 0f y0urs has been a c0mplete waste 0f time
AA: really its kind 0f inspiring h0w y0u keep finding new and exciting ways t0 waste an infinite res0urce
AA: i guess amazing was the right w0rd t0 describe y0u
AC: :33 < what??
AA: this is p0intless
AA: i sh0uldnt even be here anym0re
AA: id be better 0ff just jumping t0 the alpha timeline
AC: :33 < what!!!!
AC: :33 < aradia no you cant leave!!!
AA: why n0t
AA: whats the p0int 0f me staying
AA: its just an0ther d00med timeline
AA: t0 think f0r the briefest 0f m0ments i actually let myself get my h0pes up
AA: when i knew the wh0le thing was just a big sham the entire time
AC: :33 < its not a sham!!!
AC: :33 < look, why do you want to go back to the alpha timeline???
AA: because staying here is p0intless
AA: the alpha timeline needs me m0re than this 0ne d0es
AC: :33 < ugh thats not true!!!
AC: :33 < this timeline n33ds you more than anything!!!
AC: :33 < why do you even care about the stupid alpha timeline anyway???
AA: because its the 0nly 0ne that matters
AA: the 0nly reas0n f0r a d00med timeline t0 persist as l0ng as it d0es is if it c0ntributes t0 the alpha in s0me way
AC: :33 < ugh that is so stupid
AC: :33 < the alpha timeline is dumb and youre dumb fur even wanting to purrserve it in the furst place!
AA: nepeta that is seri0usly the m0st idi0tic thing ive ever heard
AC: :33 < why do you n33d to help the alpha timeline anyway??
AC: :33 < just whats so fucking great about it????
AA: i never said there was anything great ab0ut it
AA: but its the 0nly 0ne that matters
AC: :33 < i dont care!!
AC: :33 < furom what ive heard, the alpha timeline is actually purretty fucking terrible!!!
AC: :33 < just a horrible endless purrade of suffuring fur all purrties involved!
AC: :33 < is a timeline like that really worth purrserving???
AA: it d0esnt matter
AC: :33 < look, just be honest with me
AC: :33 < what happens to me in the alpha timeline?
AC: :33 < its something horrible isnt it???
AC: :33 < i knew it!!!
AC: :33 < so i dont care!!!
AC: :33 < even if it is hopeless, id rather fight fur a chance at making a better timeline than surrender to the stupid alpha!
AA: l00k nepeta i appreciate the sentiment and all but theres really n0thing y0u can d0 ab0ut it
AA: this iterati0n 0f this universe is d00med and thats that
AC: :33 < well maybe it is
AC: :33 < but what if we make another universe??
AC: :33 < a better universe than whatefur stupid one we create in the alpha timeline???
AA: we cant create a universe
AA: universes cant be created in d00med timelines
AA: n0 matter h0w well we breed 0ur universe fr0g the final d00r will lead t0 n0thing but an empty v0id
AA: its a security precauti0n
AA: an sgrub sessi0n is a fairly lightweight thing but a universe is several 0rders 0f magnitude larger
AA: n0 use wasting all that matter and energy by letting any 0ld d00med timeline create a universe that will just be d00med anyway
AC: :33 < seriously?
AC: :33 < we really cant create a new universe?
AA: s0 theres really n0 reas0n f0r y0u t0 b0ther with this at all
AA: the wh0le thing was just 0ne big ruse
AA: a distracti0n fr0m infinitely m0re imp0rtant duties
AA: 0h well it was enj0yable reprieve fr0m fatalism while it lasted
AA: id alm0st managed t0 sav0r it
AC: :33 < i dont get it aradia
AC: :33 < why are you so certain that were beyond saving?
AA: because 0f all the myriad ways ive seen 0f affecting a timeline i havent seen 0ne that can save it fr0m the inevitable destructi0n that entails fr0m departing fr0m the alpha timeline
AA: and even if i was wr0ng and psyche did have s0me way 0f d0ing it it d0esnt matter
AA: because her task was imp0ssible fr0m the 0utset
AC: :33 < what?
AC: :33 < aradia what are you talking about?
AA: y0ur little shipping quest
AA: it cant be d0ne
AA: and even if y0u werent d0ing it f0r such a p0intless reas0n the wh0le thing w0uld still be an exercise in futility
AC: :33 < thats not true!
AC: :33 < its not impawssible, i know it can be done!
AA: its 0bvi0us whats g0ing 0n here nepeta
AA: y0ur denizen set y0u 0n an imp0ssible task and 0ffered y0u a reward she c0uldnt p0ssibly deliver 0n
AA: all f0r s0me devi0us purp0se 0f her 0wn n0 d0ubt
AA: psyche played y0u f0r an utter f00l
AC: :33 < no, thats not true!
AC: :33 < i trust psyche!
AC: :33 < she gave me all the tools i n33ded to complete my task, and i know i can do it!
AC: :33 < and she purromised she could save us all, and i believe her!
AC: :33 < yes really!
AA: y0ure abs0lutely dead set 0n this wh0le thing arent y0u
AC: :33 < yes i am!!!
AC: :33 < it isnt impawssible to ship all of us, i just know it!
AA: is there n0thing i can d0 t0 change y0ur mind
AC: :33 < no!!!!
AA: well in that case theres n0 p0int in sticking ar0und
AA: i may as well just depart f0r the alpha n0w
AC: :33 < aradia wait just a minute!!!!!
AC: :33 < just listen to me!
AC: :33 < now i may not know as much about time as you do
AC: :33 < but i know one thing
AC: :33 < the alpha timeline doesnt n33d your help!
AC: :33 < it already exists, and theres nothing anypawdy can do to change that!
AC: :33 < and if i say something to you to make you change your mind, therell still be a branch where you decide to leave anyway
AC: :33 < so the alpha timeline wont even lose an aradia if you stay!
AC: :33 < so theres no reason for you to leave!!!
AA: thats true
AA: but theres n0 reas0n f0r me t0 stay either
AC: :33 < thats a lie!!!
AC: :33 < there are plenty of reasons fur you to stay!!
AC: :33 < in fact, there are exactly eleven reasons fur you to stay!
AC: :33 < now if you stay, i cant guarant33 that efurrything will work out
AC: :33 < but if you leave, then well definitely be doomed!
AC: :33 < and then all the rest of us will die!!
AC: :33 < and you can try to say that we were doomed anyway, and it doesnt matter
AC: :33 < but youll know fur a fact that the reason we all died is beclaws you left!!!
AC: :33 < and can you really live with that?
AC: :33 < can you live with the fact that youll be directly responsible for all of our deaths?
AA: 0f c0urse i can
AA: the alpha timeline is m0re imp0rtant
AC: :33 < okay fine, i believe you
AC: :33 < so just go ahead, aradia
AC: :33 < all the rest of us are going to die horribly
AC: :33 < but its okay!
AC: :33 < i wont blame you
AC: :33 < none of us will
AC: :33 < me and terezi and sollux are all going to be purrfectly fine with the fact that we died beclaws of you
AC: :33 < the alpha timeline is more impurrtant after all!
AC: :33 < so just go ahead and leave
AA: that is a really fucking dirty argument and y0u kn0w it
AC: :33 < h33 h33, sorry
AC: :33 < but i n33d you to stay, aradia!
AC: :33 < i cant do this without you
AA: y0u cant d0 it with me either
AA: it cant be d0ne peri0d
AA: even if i d0nt leave were all d00med anyway because the task set bef0re y0u is an utterly fruitless 0ne
AC: :33 < why do you k33p saying that???
AC: :33 < just what is it about my shipping quest thats so completely impossible???
AC: :33 < im already halfway done, why should finishing the other half be any harder??
AA: because as admirable as y0ur pr0gress has been thus far theres 0ne thing y0u never th0ught t0 take int0 c0nsiderati0n
AA: 0ne 0bstacle thats insurm0untable even f0r the greatest of shippers
AA: a single tr0ll am0ng the twelve 0f us that is c0mpletely and utterly unshippable
AC: :33 < okay just furom all your doom and gloom talk i assume youre talking about yourself
AA: c0ngratulati0ns thats the first reas0nable assumpti0n y0uve made in this entire c0nversati0n
AC: :33 < aradia that is stupid!
AC: :33 < why would you think youre unshippable???
AC: :33 < and dont even try to say its beclaws youre an emotionless robot or anything stupid like that!
AC: :33 < under all that meowtallic plating youre still a purrson with f33lings and we both know it!
AC: :33 < or did you just beat the crap out of my meowrail and then make out with him beclaws you were purrogrammed to???
AA: thats exactly what im talking ab0ut
AA: there was 0ne pers0n in the entirety 0f parad0x space wh0 was willing t0 be in a quadrant with me
AA: and even he backed 0ut
AC: :33 < ugh that doesnt mean anything!
AC: :33 < look, were you efur actually flushed fur equius?
AA: n0t really n0
AC: :33 < well, thats why he ended your relationship!!!
AC: :33 < he really was flushed fur you, aradia
AC: :33 < in fact, he might still be!
AC: :33 < but when he realized you didnt love him back, he decided it was fur the best to end things
AC: :33 < beclaws he wants you to be happy!
AC: :33 < but when you were with him you were just miserable!
AC: :33 < and he left beclaws you deserve to be happy, even if its with somepawdy else!
AA: i d0nt deserve anything
AC: :33 < yes you do!!!
AA: n0ne 0f us deserve anything nepeta
AA: n0ne 0f us are entitled t0 happiness
AA: all we can d0 is take what we can get and try t0 be 0k with it
AC: :33 < thats not true!!!
AC: :33 < efurryone deserves to be happy!
AC: :33 < and you shouldnt f33l like you have to settle fur being in a quadrant with someone you dont love beclaws you think you cant do any better!
AA: s0 then what
AA: just what are y0u suggesting i d0
AC: :33 < im suggesting you should be with somepawdy you actually love!
AA: like wh0
AC: :33 < i dont know, you tell me!
AC: :33 < come on, aradia, surely theres somepawdy you care about like that!
AA: it d0esnt matter
AC: :33 < yes it does!!!!!
AA: n0 it d0esnt!
AA: n0t anym0re
AA: i had my chance and i blew it
AA: and if i try again all im g0ing t0 d0 is just screw everything up
AC: :33 < you arent going to screw anything up aradia!
AA: nepeta just st0p
AA: i get what y0ure trying t0 d0 but it isnt g0ing t0 w0rk
AA: and y0u think y0ure helping but all y0ure d0ing is letting pe0ple get hurt
AC: :33 < well sometimes you have to hurt people to help them!
AA: well maybe s0me pe0ple d0nt deserve t0 be hurt!
AA: maybe theyve suffered en0ugh bad luck already and they d0nt deserve t0 be subjected t0 any m0re in a misguided attempt t0 help them!
AA: maybe they just deserve t0 be happy
AA: even if its with s0me0ne else
AC: :33 < but nopawdy deserves anything, aradia
AC: :33 < you said it yourself, remempurr??
AA: shut up
AC: :33 < aradia listen to me
AC: :33 < sometimes
AC: :33 < sometimes people are stupid
AC: :33 < sometimes people convince themselves that they cant efur have what they want even if they know it isnt true
AC: :33 < and so they find something else
AC: :33 < even if its not what they actually want
AC: :33 < and they cling to the hope that maybe one day they actually will
AC: :33 < and sometimes that works!
AC: :33 < but sometimes its just unhealthy
AC: :33 < and even though it might s33m harsh
AC: :33 < sometimes the best thing to do is to destroy their hopes entirely
AA: maybe s0me pe0ple deserve t0 h0pe
AC: :33 < well why do they deserve to hope and you dont???
AA: i d0nt kn0w
AC: :33 < aradia
AC: :33 < you arent going to screw anything up
AC: :33 < and even if you are, maybe things n33d to be screwed up!
AC: :33 < maybe this whole situation is screwed up already and screwing it up even more is the only way to fix it!
AA: nepeta just st0p
AA: st0p st0p st0p st0p st0p st0p
AA: i d0nt want t0 hear this anym0re
AC: :33 < why not???
AA: because im starting t0 believe it
AA: and im n0t letting myself get my h0pes up again
AC: :33 < well you should get your hopes up aradia!
AC: :33 < beclaws you deserve to be happy as much as efurrypawdy else does!
AA: well what if my happiness is mutually exclusive with every0ne elses happiness
AA: what then
AC: :33 < what are you talking about??
AA: y0u kn0w what i mean
AA: hes already happy with her
AA: what right d0 i have t0 interfere
AC: :33 < well what if he isnt happy with her???
AC: :33 < does he s33m happy to you aradia???
AA: im n0t listening t0 this anym0re
AA: im d0ne even hum0ring this
AA: just leave me al0ne and leave them al0ne
AA: and st0p trying t0 help pe0ple when all y0ure g0ing t0 d0 is screw things up f0r them
AC: :33 < im not screwing anything up!!!!
AC: :33 < you and sollux deserve to be together and you both know it!!!!
AA: just st0p
AA: and d0nt try t0 c0ntact me again
AC: :33 < aradia!!!!
