  1. ...and I got a phone call today about this. Dawn Prough -- aka Dawn-OOC, Carver, etc -- is stepping up for the DST job. Which is wonderful, as she did an absolutely fantastic job as DST back in the old Camarilla days. ...and I'm signed into the wrong account. Jess here.
  2. "I think a tour would be in order," Timeslip voiced in her echoing tones as she rose from the floor in flight. "But you are wrong about the ties that bind one to a world. While her genetics originate in my homeworld, a connection with a temporal thread is established at the moment of independent life, a connection that will remain for all her days. You must notice that it is always easiest to return to your original thread when you cross the lines; when she learns to do so, this will be the thread to which she can always return at a thought." With no further commentary, Timeslip swept out of the temple, leading the familiar stranger and showing him the sights of an alien home.
  3. "The warm welcome by Pachacamac was certainly a factor," Timeslip replied. "And the semi-isolationist Incan culture reminded me a great deal of when I was living with Ryu in Japan." The comment would have been confusing under different circumstances, but both she and he were adept at juggling the various realities of the interdimensional cosmos. "And there are advantages to being a goddess." Looking around the vast chamber, at the attendant priestesses and the rest of the temple, her point was overwhelmingly obvious. "But the core reason I remain here is that this is where my child was born. This is her home thread, even though it is not my own. And that is a special tie, giving this world a mark distinct and indeed beloved amongst all others in my eye."
  4. With an invisible smile, Timeslip recounted for this variant of her former husband how history had unfolded here. She told of the early visitors to South America's wild shores, how the pox had nearly wiped out the Aztec... but made them all the stronger when true conquistadors tried to take on the New World and died in the effort. As she recounted the moments, building the world for her guest, the starscape woman moved through the great domed chamber; images appeared and faded on the walls and in the air, portraying events of the distant past, unrolling the growth of a great culture as though it were a canvas, a scroll of the long years in vivid truth. At the end, she stood directly before the great bestial nova, her stars shining in bright constellations that shown in patterns across his fur. "And that brings us to where we are today. The One Race is not quite so developed here as in my original thread, but does not face the same opposition, either. Here, we can develop as we should, can become the gods that we are destined to become. Here, I am truly the Portent-of-Things-to-Come, and my worshipers are not few."
  5. "And so you found your way." The words echoes with an utterly inhuman mixture of coldness and warmth, clinical sterility and empathic understanding. "Know this, Seeker-for-What-Was-Lost. I have changed more since that trial than most can imagine. Before, I was a Portent, but with only the barest understanding of what that meant. Now, I am the Portent of Things to Come. The threads from here split in many directions, and a good many of them bring you sorrow and loss and bitter resentment. Those that lead to joy are few, and they are the thinnest and most fragile of threads; even now as we speak, they shimmer in and out of existence in the great river of all." Timeslip gazed at and through this version of Long, the gaze so intense that even without seeing her eyes he could feel them bore through his mind and heart and soul and into the very thing that bound him into the multiverse. "Knowing the risks, knowing that you will most likely fail to find happiness, would you still proceed with me?"
  6. There was very, very little in the world - either this one, or that which she used to call home - that could stop Timeslip cold. This was one of those very few things. Taking a seat on a throne that seldom saw use, the would-be goddess motioned Shenlong forward with a guesture, and when she spoke, there was somehow a softness in that incredibly alien voice. "I'm sorry. I know that there are many worlds where my analogue did not find the means to escape death at the hands of those opposed to her. You have my condolences in that the one you knew fell." There was a moment, then: "Tell me: was it the bullet that struck in the garden, in Japan? Or another, perhaps surrounding a trial?"
  7. With a deep bow, the High Priestess explained, "The Portent of Things to Come expects you; follow me, honoured Long." The slender Incan turned, ritual robes flaring in a wide circle - and a slight aura flaring as well, denoting her firmly as a nova - before settling once more to hang straight and long as she let the visitor to meet her goddess. Said goddess was just completing a resumption of her solid form as the two entered the room. "And here you are again..." Timeslip began, the strange echoing voice filling the room before it stopped short. "No, not again," she realized, noting subtle differences in this Long. A slightly different tone to his quantum signature, a bit more muscle in certain places, both of which could be explained away by time and effort, but something far more different was evident. The strings that tied him to the universal skein were not those of her native home, and that was unmistakable. "Palla, leave us." With the dancer's grace for which the nova had been named, Timeslip's High Priestess bowed and departed the massive star-filled chamber. After a long look, inscrutable for her form, the Portent of Things to Come asked, "From where do you come, and are you still known as Long, traveller?"
  8. Something was about to happen. That much, the inhuman creature known as Timeslip knew for certain. Other inklings came to her: visions of deep space, such as that reflected in her ever-present aura; a feeling of time and space woven in interlocking threads between universes; the fierce face of Ryu, seeking something... seeking her. "Prepare for a visitor," her voice echoed in a thousand chords to her priestesses. "Long is coming."
  9. "You are not a prisoner, and may do as you wish. Do not think to take her from this world, but visit if you like. I will see much soon, and much stay here." The constellations faded, stars remaining but the lines almost vanishing from sight, and Long realized that she was returning once more to a nearly ephemeral state. Sensory deprivation? he wondered. Might be needed for how she "sees" future events, to lose connection with the here and now. Whatever the meaning, one thing was clear: he had been dismissed.
  10. "Oh, I would have so very much of you if I could." The words, even through the hair-raising effect of the echoes, conveyed anger, hatred and betrayal that literally surpassed the bounds of time and space. "But that is not to be. I have seen that much. Nor is what you think to be. Or did you really think that escaping such a thing would be so simple, so easy? "What is seen can be changed, Long-Who-Was-Ryu. But not by fleeing to other worlds. Even I will be there, with the world burning around me. The message was sent because I knew it would be sent, that you would respond by coming here, that you would understand what I say now and return to prepare. "The One Race will turn upon itself, and those who win will be what the mayfly humans need to set the world aflame. Prevent the first, and you make it possible to prevent the second. Fail to do so, and all you care for will end. "Neither forgiven nor forgotten," the alien thing that had once been Timeslip echoed. "Understand that, and you will know what is to come and how it may be stopped. You have been warned."
  11. "Really? I wasn't aware... has it been so long for you?" The voice - a haunting, echoing thing, out of temporal synch with itself - didn't seem to so much emanate from the barely-percieved form before him, but from various points in the room. It may not have been Long's first clue that things had changed, but it certainly drove home the point. "But then, you've been so busy, and will be more busy still. Are you ready for what will come, Long-Who-Was-Ryu? Are you ready for the night that will befall the vaunted One Race? Or are you too busy teaching wingless dragons to fly?" The vague form solidified, and now there was no mistaking that it was Timeslip... if changed. Faintly glowing blue lines traced from one point of light to another, creating patterns both alien and familiar. The starscape woman stood before him not only an unknown and unknowable sea of stars, but of constellations full of hidden meaning. "Saori has learned her art well, you see. Long ago - or was it only yesterday? - I asked her to strive, to push herself, to create work worthy of ones such as ourselves. As you can see, she did so and more." Stepping forward a few steps, the constellations shifting and seeming to flow as she did, Timeslip said, "I am the Portent Of Things To Come, and what is to come to your world will burn the sky."
  12. Neither forgotten nor forgiven. You've been warned.
  13. Well, allow me to retort: Womens' Rules for Men For thousands of years, men have tried to understand the rules when dealing with women. Finally, this merit/demerit guide will help you to understand just how it works. Remember, in the world of romance, one single rule applies: Make the woman happy. Do something she likes, and you get points. Do something she dislikes, and points are subtracted. You don't get any points for doing something she expects. Sorry, that's the way the game is played. Here is a guide to the points system: SIMPLE DUTIES You make the bed..............................................+1 You make the bed, but forget to add the decorative pillows.... 0 You throw the bedspread over rumpled sheets...................-1 You leave the toilet seat up..................................-5 You go out to buy her extra-light panty liners with wings.....+5 in the snow...................................................+8 but return with beer..........................................-5 and no liners................................................-25 You check out a suspicious noise at night..................... 0 You check out a suspicious noise and it is nothing............ 0 You check out a suspicious noise and it is something..........+5 You pummel it with a six iron................................+10 It's her cat.................................................-40 AT THE PARTY You stay by her side the entire party........................ 0 You stay by her side for a while, then leave to chat with a high school drinking buddy...............................................-2 Named Tiffany................................................-4 Tiffany is a dancer.........................................-10 With breast implants........................................-18 HER BIRTHDAY You remember her birthday.....................................0 You buy a card and flowers....................................0 You take her out to dinner....................................0 You take her out to dinner and it's not a sports bar.........+1 Okay, it is a sports bar.....................................-2 And it's all-you-can-eat night...............................-3 It's a sports bar, it's all-you-can-eat night, and your face is painted the colors of your favorite team............-10 A NIGHT OUT WITH THE BOYS Go with a pal.................................................0 The pal is happily married...................................+1 The pal is single............................................-7 He drives a Ferrari.........................................-10 With a personalised license plate (GR8 NBED)................-15 A NIGHT OUT WITH HER You take her to a movie......................................+2 You take her to a movie she likes............................+4 You take her to a movie you hate.............................+6 You take her to a movie you like.............................-2 It's called Death Cop 3......................................-3 Which features Cyborgs that eat humans.......................-9 You lied and said it was a foreign film about orphans.......-15 YOUR PHYSIQUE You develop a noticeable pot belly................................-15 You develop a noticeable pot belly & exercise to get rid of it....+10 You develop a noticeable pot belly and resort to loose jeans and baggy Hawaiian shirts.............................................-30 You say, "It doesn't matter, you have one too." ............................................................-800 THE BIG QUESTION She asks, "Does this dress make me look fat?"

  14. Apep! Long time no see; welcome back!
