/DETERMINE: Disposition of salvage team inside the mostly ruined Reintegration Facility//Begin

Hello!

There is a salvage team in the semi-ruins of the Facility!

Superintendent <3 salvage team!

Determining who the salvage team consists of. Please be patient - you shouldn't have to wait more than a minute!

That's it! All done. Here you go:

Eight men aged 19, 26, 25, 37, 45, 20, 25, and 22.
Six women aged 23, 23, 22, 27, 30, and 25.
Two children aged 8 and 11.

Determining intent of salvage team. Please be patient - you shouldn't have to wait more than a minute!

That's it! All done. The salvage team is obviously hostile! Activating neurotoxin emitters.

Oh, no! It seems that in the catastrophic event that led to the widespread destruction of the Facility, all the neurotoxins escaped into the sea! Mm-mm, I do love a good fillet of poisoned fish!

Well, then! We'll just have to find some other way to take care of them!

Overloading energy barriers! Overloading remaining engines! Releasing flood capacitors! Unlocking flux gates! Activating security lasers! Activating security turrets! Unlocking airlocks!

Goodbye, and thank you for visiting the Reintegration Facility! We hope to see you again

IN HELL.hahahahahahahaha.

    Zabu hate VIRUS.hack.
    What have you done to the Superintendent?

    Query: Has the salvage team been fully eliminated?
    Command: Identify everyone in the team.
    Query: What was the team doing there?
    Query: Exactly what was it salvaging?

    ReplyDelete
  2. Yes!

    I do not know! It is not important.

    They were salvaging!

    Everything! What else is there to salvage?

    ReplyDelete
  3. Input accepted. Response: According to the Superintendent, VIRUS.hack has "upgraded" him, and quite obviously corrupted him.

    ReplyDelete
  4. <3

    Anyway.

    Superintendent, relay every single bit of data you have received since the detection of the salvage team to the Reintegration Tablet.

    Clarification: I meant was there a reason to their salvaging besides making money from selling things? Were they looking for information of some sort?

    ReplyDelete
  5. Well, isn't this cute. Our little Superintendent has killed 16 people.

    Good to see you're back, Tablet. Any chance we can get a little more on the progress of that cure?

    Oh, and is there anything WE should be doing? Like maybe looking for Leslie and Freddifer? Or trying to find a few of those last friendlies?

    ReplyDelete
  6. Oh goodie, Zach is here. Now I can get back to classs without feeling like time is being wasted.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Input accepted. Response: Cure 107 eliminated as a possible success.

    Input accepted. Response: Goliath and Croven still require messengers.

    ReplyDelete
  8. I can't! VIRUS.hack does not want me to!

    No! They are just simple salvagers! Maybe pirates!

    ReplyDelete
  9. Speaking of entities.

    Analyze: Baaztat
    Describe: Baaztat

    ReplyDelete
  10. So...you <3 VIRUS.Hack more than us?

    I'm hurt, Superintendent. I'm really hurt.

    Goliath and Croven...where are they again? I might be able to find some time to go track them down before I start running my own errands.

    ReplyDelete
  11. ZABULON

    Input accepted. Commencing analysis.

    Analysis: upload commencing. Upload complete. Analysis:

    Subject: Baaztat. Status: Semi-stable. Abilities: Fantastic. Emotional status: Strong. Threat level: High. Intelligence level: Intermediate. Potential: High. Danger: Moderate.

    Input accepted. Response: Baaztat is a demonic form that never looks quite the same. See basic images of Satan for references.

    BRAVETHESTORM

    Input accepted. Response: Croven resides in or around the Panama Canal, and Goliath at the Nile Delta.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Oh, lookie there. Croven's right in my direction.

    The message, please?

    Oh, and if you could tell me any of Baaztat's weaknesses? I might be able to make a stop in LA.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Input accepted. Response: Croven is to begin his whispers. He will know what to do from there.

    Input accepted. Response: Holy items, including prayers and holy water. A word of caution; just as Baaztat looks similar to Satan, Baaztat is as old and nearly as powerful as Satan. The Reintegration Tablet would like to advise against taking up arms.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Query: Even two people wouldn't be enough?
    I could try to get a couple of the churches in LA to begin praying against him...

    ReplyDelete
  15. Oh, I'm not going to FIGHT him. I'm not yet so insane as to think I could stand a chance.

    But his intellect is only Intermediate, so I may well be able to jury-rig a few crosses around town.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Input accepted. Response: It would take a veritable holy army, or very talented and powerful individuals. The Reintegration Tablet would like to advise against alerting common people, even common holy men and women, to Baaztat's presence or even existence.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Input accepted. Response: Intermediate is halfway between moderate and high. As with all such creatures, Baaztat is cocky and very sure of himself, but still sneaky, tricky, and even wise.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Alright, alright. Last thing, before I make up my mind.

    Query: What has Baaztat recently done? Riots, murders, arson? Or is he just biding his time?

    ReplyDelete
  19. Input accepted. Response: Mostly biding. He had a hand in the Japan earthquake.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Well, that's made up my mind.

    Although...

    Query: If Baaztat fulfills the usual understanding of satan, or a demon, would he be the sort to engage in...deals?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Input accepted. Response: Baaztat will probably be happy to buy your soul.

    Stimulus accepted. Response: Rob, don't even think about it.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Oh, goodie.

    I've always wanted to outsmart a demon.

    Not really, but a man only lives once. Let's see what we can't work out here...

    ReplyDelete
  23. Zach, I don't like where you're going with this...

    Query: Is 'Rob' 'Zach'?
    Query: If not, who?

    ReplyDelete
  24. Input accepted. Response: No.

    Input accepted. Response: "JediZero", who has expressed wishes to sell his soul or make some similar deal to resurrect Stella.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Rob is Jedizero. He's gone nearly insane trying to find a way to bring his girlfriend back.

    And trust me. I'm no fool.


    Query: Besides the whole Earthquake, how...up to date is Baaztat in the world as a whole? Does he know the progress of technology, or the ebb and flow of controversies?

    And...were I to ACTUALLY trick him such that I managed to keep my soul...

    ReplyDelete
  26. Input accepted. Response: Very well, mostly. It is likely he has taken more interest in said controversies than technology, but waving a match at him and saying, "Look at me. I am god of fire." will probably not work.

    ReplyDelete
  27. No, no, no. I'm not that stupid.

    Last question. If he really wanted, could he take my soul anyways? I mean...does he NEED my permission? Or does he just want it to be official?

    And if I DID outsmart him, would he still adhere to his side of the bargain?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Oh, I understand. OK.

    Command: Define 'soul.'
    Compile: a list of the consequences of selling your soul.

    ReplyDelete
  29. BRAVETHESTORM

    Input accepted. Response: Yes, but it may be retrievable if taken without a contract.

    Notification: "Soul-selling" is a vague term that does not necessarily have to refer to the selling of souls.

    Input accepted. Response: If within the terms of the contract, most likely. At worst, nothing would come of it, good or bad.

    ZABULON

    Input accepted. Response: "Soul" undefinable. Apologies.

    Input accepted. Response: What is the worst pain that you can imagine?

    All consequences of "soul-selling" are ten times as bad as that, though not necessarily all involving pain.

    It would be unwise and not easy to give a more detailed list.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Is the soul really all he'd want? Seems there are some better things we could present him. More practical things.

    Query: What is the relationship between Baaztat and Archangel?

    ReplyDelete
  31. Input accepted. Response: A similar one between Satan and God, or Lucifer and Michael.

    ReplyDelete
  32. NOW we're getting somewhere.

    Were I to promise him to present him proof of Archangel's death? Would THAT suffice?

    ReplyDelete
  33. Is 'Lucifer' not the name of Satan?

    ReplyDelete
  34. Iffy.

    He has so many possible names it's not worth arguing.

    ReplyDelete
  35. BRAVETHESTORM

    Input accepted. Response: No. Proof would be required upfront.

    Please do not try to kill Archangel.

    ZABULON

    Input accepted. Response: Sometimes. In this case, Lucifer is Satan's highest lieutenant, as Saint Michael is to God.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Well, it's all about presentation...

    Would he allow proper time for me to find the right place and the right conditions? If you have to do it, you have to do it RIGHT. Just handing him a feather is pretty anti-climactic.

    Sue me; I have a sense for the dramatic.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Input accepted. Response: Likely. What gives the impression of a feather being proof of Archangel's death?

    ReplyDelete
  38. Example. I was trying to point out that, if I'm doing it, it should be in a place where I can present it properly. An empty street at dusk...a box in my hand...and I open it.

    And inside...the death of Archangel. Perfect.

    Yeah, I'm liking this. I'm liking this a lot.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Input accepted. Response: A box seems even more anti-climactic than simply handing him the feather.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Understood.

    Query: What would happen if someone of faith (not me) asked Archangel for faux proof of his death to present to Baaztat?

    ReplyDelete
  41. Input accepted. Response: Unknown. Archangel may be glad to assist in the defeat/"hiring" of Baaztat, but it is also possible that he would not appreciate such trickery and prefer to do things mano-a-mano.

    ReplyDelete
  42. What would a computer know about drama?

    You gotta relax, Tablet. You said it yourself, he's cocky.

    I can do this. Just trust me.

    Were I to offer my soul, would he fulfill his part of the contract first? I mean, it wouldn't be much use otherwise.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Calculate: The chances of Archangel being glad to help.

    ReplyDelete
  44. BRAVETHESTORM

    Input accepted. Response: You are forgetting the abilities of this "computer".

    Input accepted. Response: Possible, but unlikely. He is a businessman. He would not do anything without a down payment.

    ZABULON

    Input accepted. Response: 53%.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Zabulon, I've got this.

    There's not going to be some FAUX death here. I'm a man of my word. If I offer the soul of Zach Briggs, he'll get the soul of Zach Briggs.

    And if I offer to show him proof that Archangel is death, I'll show him proof that Archangel is dead.

    But you have to trust me.

    ReplyDelete
  46. You know...I just realized.

    There's no mention of Phoenix. Friendly OR Hostile. Is it still out there, Tablet?

    ReplyDelete
  47. Input accepted. Response: Zabulon asked yesterday how the organics could ever trust the Reintegration Tablet again.

    Why should the Reintegration Tablet trust organics? You have, as a collective, "fucked up" the Earth to no end.

    Input accepted. Response: Phoenix is neither friendly nor hostile to the purpose of Reintegration. Phoenix is, however, still out there, and is known to be friendly to humans.

    ReplyDelete
  48. But bro, SELLING YOUR SOUL SUCKS APPARENTLY.
    The tablet said so.

    Also, how do you plan to trick Baaztat?

    Finally, you can call me 'Zabu' or 'Tron.'

    ReplyDelete
  49. As a collective, perhaps.

    As an individual, I've done nothing but help.

    You said yesterday that every human should be considered to have moderate threat, no matter what, and you said yourself that I have high intelligence.

    I may not be as smart as Baaztat, but I'm not as old. I'm not as cocky.

    I daresay he'll jump at this opportunity.

    ReplyDelete
  50. ZABULON

    Input accepted. Response: Oh. Hello, Tron. Good to see you.

    BRAVETHESTORM

    Input accepted. Response: It was partially a rhetorical question. Do not put yourself in any more danger than you must.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Tron, you should know the folly of saying your plan out loud. It leads to nothing but problems.

    My plans are my own, and they'll work. They have so far. And if not there's no one on the chopping block but me.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Good. Great.

    Can I perhaps have $200, Tablet? That alone will be plenty to...enlist Baaztat.

    ReplyDelete
  53. No! No! No! No! I will not let you!

    ReplyDelete
  54. I sure as hell hope you're right...

    ReplyDelete
  55. Input accepted. Response: Error: The Facility Maintenance "Superintendent" AI is interfering.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Oh, goodie.

    It's THIS guy.

    No matter. I can get by with what I have. Even $200 was just hedging my bets.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Superintendent.... </3

    Don't you want to see a demon up close?

    ReplyDelete
  58. Zach! I still have some money left over from my trips to Wyoming and Zanzibar.

    I think its about $150

    ReplyDelete
  59. Tron, you are the man.

    Meet me in LA, and we'll do this in style. We'll have the soul as down payment, and we'll give him the proof after he agrees to help us.

    I'm a man of my word, now let's hope Baaztat is a man of his.

    ReplyDelete
  60. No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! NO!

    ReplyDelete
  61. You're a whore, Superintendent.
    You're VIRUS.hack's filthy little whore.
    Do you like being pimp-slapped by the VIRUS?


    @Zach, Sure. We'll talk about this in a few hours, when I can get to my emai.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Superintendent may enjoy this, while me and Tron plot on how to get Baaztat on our side.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WWaLxFIVX1s

    And on this, I bid you adieu. Wrack your database all you like, Tablet. I can guarantee YOU won't figure it out, much less HIM.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I hate you all! Superintendent no <3 you! Superintendent </3 you!

    ReplyDelete
  64. Is that a threat, superintendent? Are you going to cut our hearts? I'd like to see you try, buddy. :D

    ReplyDelete
  65. Input accepted. Response: Do not worry. The Facility Maintenance "Superintendent" AI has no military power outside of the Reintegration Facility.

    ReplyDelete
  66. What's wrong, Superintendent?

    You a sore loser?

    ReplyDelete
  67. Input accepted. Response: That said, it would not be wise to antagonize the Facility Maintenance "Superintendent" AI further.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Query: Does VIRUS.hack have military power (outside of the facility)?

    ReplyDelete
  69. Input accepted. Response: Yes.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Shit.

    Query: Could you provide some examples?

    Compile: A list of all the locations in which it holds military power.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Alright, y'know what?

    I'm in need of a good laugh.

    I know you're there, Virus. Wouldn't be surprised if you found a new way to talk, too.

    Anything YOU feel like saying? Besides 'No'?

    ReplyDelete
  72. Input accepted. Response: Military intelligence of various countries, progress on nuclear weapons, North Korean activity, footage of Osama bin Laden's death, information on new weapons, access to any non-portable (such as turrets, missiles, and some vehicles) weapons.

    Input accepted. Response: Everywhere with a computer.

    ReplyDelete
  73. That sucks.


    I'd like to see that video. Tablet are YOU able to access it?

    ReplyDelete
  74. Input accepted. Response: Yes, but unable to upload it. Manual viewing necessary.

    Won't this be a fun week.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Very fun. Looking forward to it.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Tablet. Projected time before a cure for VIRUS.Hack is found? Make sure to include variables.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Input accepted. Response: Approximately 40 days.

    ReplyDelete
  81. Input: I am salvaging any weaponry from the base!
    Request: HELP!

    ReplyDelete
  82. Input accepted. Response: Impossible from current location. You can get out or die.

    ReplyDelete
  83. Projected time, if we were to enlist supernatural aid? Like Kainolung, or Lehu?

    ReplyDelete
  84. Input accepted. Response: Approximately...40 days.

    ReplyDelete
  85. So getting extra hands won't do any good.

    Blast. I assumed if we could get some of these guys all in the same place, they could do SOMETHING to help.

    It really is just up to you, isn't it?

    ReplyDelete
  86. Tablet, I know I haven't begun to chronicle my adventures yet, but is it possible for you to analyze me?
    If so,

  89. Quantum Supercomputers need help, too.

    It just seems like there's...nothing we really CAN do to help. Even Supernaturals arenn't any good.

    Fuck. Fucking fuck fuck.

    ReplyDelete
  90. Zach, we can enlist/eliminate Baaztat.

    Also, thanks for the confidence boost, Tablet. xD

    ReplyDelete
  91. Yeah, but to what end?

    For what reason?

    He'll just find a way to turn against us just as we're starting to fall back on him, and it won't even MATTER.

    It's like we're just running around throwing rocks at the monster while we wait for Godzilla.

    ReplyDelete
  92. Can you think of a better way to pass your time? It'll be fun.

    Killing him will be even more entertaining. Come on! Don't give up!

    ReplyDelete
  93. Fun. Yeah, great.

    Fun's all fine and good BUT I'M NOT IN THIS FOR FUN.

    I'm in this to make a difference.

    You'll...you'll see, Tron. You've never met Him. You've never seen that fucking face. The only fun I can have is the fun of the chase.

    The fun I can get from knowing we're a little closer to victory.

    Can you infer what should be going in these pauses?

    Oh, and analyze Gary Osbourne.

    ReplyDelete
  120. ZABULON

    Input accepted. Response: Sage: a title given by Robert Sagel, the first Sage, to two other individuals - Shaun and Jay. After these three were indisposed, the title was passed on to three new individuals - Amelia Clark, Zerombr, and Maduin the Jester.

    Input accepted. Response: Around 5'9", with long, brown, and slightly unkempt hair. Very nondescript face except when casting or angry. Usually wears large cloaks, robes, and tunics - classic "wizardly" apparel.

    BRAVETHESTORM

    Input accepted. Response: He is simply seeing what happens with different input. It is not likely something to be concerned about.

    ReplyDelete
  121. Query: Why did you put three dashes after 'Amelia'?

    ReplyDelete
  122. Last name is unknown, of course.

    ReplyDelete
  123. Notification: Amelia's messages possibly analyzed. Re-uploading.

    "...Me...?...Me...4/3..."

    2/3" [greenlight]

    "You...me...three...see...?"
    "You.
    2/3" [greenlight]
    "Me?"
    Three Sages in either generation.

    First was [Robert Sagel]...there were [two others - Shaun and Jay]...they disappeared...one's been lost [Jay]...one's come back [Shaun - status unknown but activity has been shown recently]...and one [Robert]...one [nobody really knows what has happened to Robert]...then there were three [more - Amelia Clark, Zerombr, and Maduin]...

    "NO...There were never - four...4/3..."
    There were never four Sages in either generation. Only three at once.

    Warning: It is unknown who is meant to be "4/3". It is possible there is a "5/3" and "6/3", making either a third generation of Sages or a new generation of something else.

  124. Addendum: Most probable explanation: Amelia is having an identity crisis. Is she Amelia Clark? Or someone else?

    Query: Why do you grant those who will/may interfere with reintegration access?

    ReplyDelete
  136. Input accepted. Response: Such small blips on the radar of existence cannot hinder Reintegration.

    ReplyDelete
  137. I guess that makes sense.

    Thought: Maybe one of them introduced VIRUS.hack into your system...

    Query: Would you grant Redlight access?

    ReplyDelete
  138. Input accepted. Response: There are many potential Users and current Users that go by the name "redlight", including Frank "Freddifer" Amison and Leslie Delilah, who most likely introduced VIRUS.hack into the system.

    ReplyDelete
  139. VIRUS.hack seems to be a very noticable hindrance to reintegration.

    Holes in logic, y/n?

    ReplyDelete
  140. Input accepted. Response: No. VIRUS.hack is not a hindrance.

    ReplyDelete
  141. Arguing with supercomputers sucks.

    Dude, it may be the cause for the attack, and your corruption.
    Also, you are spending some of your resources and RAM trying to cure/get rid of it. Those resources could be going towards reintegration, no?

    ReplyDelete
  142. Amelia? Are you listening?

    You know that you are confused at the moment. What were you doing just before you became this way? Can you remember?

    ReplyDelete
  143. Input accepted. Response: The amount of resources and processing power being used to eliminate VIRUS.hack is infinitesimally smaller than those being used for Reintegration.

  146. The way you are now. Like you're half-asleep. You used to be different, right?

    Is that...my name...?...It all...started...in the snow...

    ReplyDelete
  149. Yes. You remember being different than you are now. That's good.

    What is the last thing you remember from back when you were different?

    ReplyDelete
  150. Amelia00:28

    The snow...

    ReplyDelete
  151. Amelia00:28

    The...the blood-stained snow...

    ReplyDelete
  152. What happened in the snow, Amelia?

    Try to remember the truth. Sort it out from the stories. Remember the real you.

    ReplyDelete
  153. Amelia00:32

    The snow...It was there...It tried...to - there were so...many dead...bodies...and what - what else...could I do...but make snow angels...?...But that wasn't...me...I wasn't...right...

    ReplyDelete
  154. I know you weren't right. Your mind was hurt very deeply that day. But I think it might be time to try and find yourself again.

    What was your favorite book, Amelia? Who were some people you loved?

    Do you want to keep others from being hurt like you were? I do. I don't want anything like that to happen ever again.

    ReplyDelete
  155. IS it your name? Try to think, Amelia.

    You remember snow, snow stained with blood. That means it must have been winter; perhaps late fall.

    Can you remember why you were there?

    WHY were you in the snow? WHY were there dead bodies?

    ReplyDelete
  156. Amelia does this blog look familiar to you?

  158. Does the name Nessa mean anything to you, Amelia?

    Or Zero?

    ReplyDelete
  159. To quote others before me: I think you broke her, Will.

    ReplyDelete
  160. (Guys, take it easy. Getting her stabilized is more important than pelting her with questions.)


    Amelia, I think you should go read a book. Pick any book you like; I'm sure Osort will have lots of suggestions for you. I'm a fan of serial fantasy, myself.

    Read something, and read it all the way through, just like you did back when you were different. Just like the times before It was a part of your life. Just read and enjoy yourself.

  161. Amelia00:50

    It...it can't...I never...wrote anything...on that blog...

    ReplyDelete
  162. I stand corrected.

    ReplyDelete
  163. I've got no shortage of suggestions on reading material.

    I've been quite a fan of Terry Pratchett, myself; you have to appreciate his sense of humor.

    ReplyDelete
  164. Amelia, is there any television where you are?

    I think Jersey Shore should be coming on soon. Some nice mindless television.

    ...Okay, that's more like torture. But you could probably find a movie. What kinds of movies can you remember watching, Amelia?

    ReplyDelete
  165. That's okay. Right now I just want you to do something you enjoy, and hopefully forget about the hurt for a few hours. That's why I recommend reading - diving into the story of another helps you put your own story into better perspective. What do you think of that, Amelia?

    ReplyDelete
  166. Amelia00:54

    I've come so...far...I can't drop...everything...and read...now...

  167. Douglas Adams has always been my favorite writer, if you don't mind my saying.

    ReplyDelete
  168. Never mind; you do. Well, if you do end up reading, my recommendation stands.

    ReplyDelete
  169. Amelia, if you've come this far, you could afford to take some time to unwind.

    You're not going to get better until you relax, and try to get better.

    How is Sloan, by the way?

    ReplyDelete
  170. You can take a break for a little while, I think. Whatever work you're doing can wait until you feel more like your old self, can't it?

    I just hate to see people hurting, Amelia.

    ReplyDelete
  171. Saw this page on one of lab tech's computers, and thought I'd stick my nose in. Sup Mr. computer dude. Any of those other friendly dudes that haven't contacted yet? Let me know where they're at, and I'll port over to em in a jiffy.

  173. My name is Amelia Clark. I've started this journal as a way of keeping track of things in my life. There's been some big changes in it, so this is the best way I can think of to understand how things are going to be from here on out.

    Stay tuned, gentle readers. It's going to be one heck of a ride together. Here's to this year being the best one ever, and may we never get bored!

    You wrote plenty on that blog.
    - Indrid

    ReplyDelete
  174. That might be why you're so confused and disoriented, Amelia - your memories have been tampered with. When it's done sloppily, there is often a risk of brain damage. Fortunately, rehabilitation is far from impossible. All it takes is an open mind and a willingness to re-learn the things you've forgotten.

    If you like, you could have plenty of help.

    Query: What is this?

    ReplyDelete
  177. ZED.

    She can't even remember anything before a few months ago. If we don't do it right, she's going to start getting aggressive.

    Amelia. Can you remember anything about your father? You said he was there. In the snow.

    What about before then? Did he ever take you to the zoo? A ballgame, perhaps?

    ReplyDelete
  178. Amelia01:07

    I never...wrote anything on that blog...I thought I was...going to, but never...got around to it...

    Tablet...Croven's message has...been delivered already...

    ReplyDelete
  179. Input accepted. Response: It sounds like an old thermos. It can keep both hot and cold objects at their respective temperatures at the same time. When the light is green, it means it is empty. Each end should screw off - one end for hot foods, and one for cold.

  180. Indrid's a proxy, Zach. 'Nuff said.


    That's perfectly alright if you didn't write anything, Amelia. Lots of people don't.

  183. Fmorga, I like that name. Where this dude at so I can talk to him. If you could give me the specific geographical coordinates it'd make porting to em a whole lot easier. What would you like me to tell em when I port to em?

    ReplyDelete
  184. Why were you delivering a message for Croven?
    - Indrid

    ReplyDelete
  185. @Indrid: My mistake then, but you continue to be an asshole. You're not off the hook for what you said to Slice. Not ever.

    ReplyDelete
  186. Amelia.

    Your father. Can you tell us what he looked like? Was he a very strong man? Or did he look like a scholar?

    Was he nice? Did you talk to him very much?

    ReplyDelete
  187. Input accepted. Response: Fmorga is in Cuba. Specific geographical coordinates not possible, unfortunately. Calling him, however, should be enough to get his attention. Be careful not to antagonize him. The smoke dragon is known to burn people he does not like.

    Fmorga needs to be told to prepare his traps. He will know what to do from there.

  189. Even though you have never used your blog you should start.
    There are many people who are perfectly willing to help you remember.

  190. If my opinion means anything, I doubt this is the same Amelia as Miss Clark. Not the exact same, anyway. Perhaps a result of the dimensional bleeding after the Solstice event?

    ReplyDelete
  191. Alright, then, Amelia.

    Can you remember any movies you used to like watching? Any games you used to play?

    I'm sure if you asked, Sloan would play with you; or watch something with you.

    You may have gone pretty far; all the more reason to take a chance to look back at where you started and feel a little better.

    ReplyDelete
  192. Cool. Anything this due likes I should bring with me? I'd like to give him a good first impression.
    @Amelia If you want after I drop off this message I can come pick you up and take you to the PTC head quarters. They've got some banging Philly stake subs in the mess hall for dinner today if your hungry.

  195. ARE you hungry, Amelia?

    What do you usually like to eat? Pizza? Or hotdogs? Or are you...were you... a vegetarian?

    ReplyDelete
  196. Alright I'll back in a bit to let you know how it went.

    @Amelia Cool just that I'd offer. Let me know if there's anything I can do for you in the mean time though.

    Peace out.

    Sloan makes pretty good...meatloaf.

    ReplyDelete
  198. So he IS treating you well.

    Can you tell us about Sloan? Does he have a sense of humor? How did you meet him?

    How much does he know about...all this?
