(Alright, so you want to set-up the scene first?)
23:53:50
(Sure I can do that in Aleda's room after this first message)
23:54:27
(Gotcha)
23:54:37
*Scene: Qedes stands behind a desk in a smaller room, looking like a secluded study in an ancient library, with books cluttering the desk and painted glass windows behind them, depicting various tarot cards. The door to the room is cosmetic, as the room is truly in an empty void, and that's displayed by the various floating magical objects, such as figures and models of past events the group has went to. Qedes chuckles,* "I believe it is time for the fun to start~!" *They dissapear, appearing in a music studio*
23:59:56
*Appears in the study, landing with a soft thud* ...Interesting place you've got here
00:07:24
*Draco appears wirh Qedes, sitting in chairs across from each other, Qedes sitting behind the desk*
00:07:38
...So, what do you need me for? Because clearly, there's something important you have to say to me
00:08:35
While I do like to do frivolous things, this is quite the important occasion~! *They gesture around the study* This is my personal little corner, I do appreciate the compliment~!
00:10:52
Well, suffice to say, it definitely fits your personality type
00:11:16
But yeah, you're planning something huge... and I'm wanting to know
00:12:18
That is what you're missing about this all, I'm planning nothing~!
00:12:42
Fate is a fickle thing Draco~
00:12:56
*Deadpans* Uh uh... sure... well, if you're not planning anything. Then why are we here?
00:13:19
And not in the sense of 'Life's big question' more 'why bring me here for conversation?'
00:13:40
You see Draco, I am nothing else if not an agent of fate itself~! I've been around for most of your life, and everyone's lives~! I have decided to show my face now because of the-- Ah, that would ruin the surprise, wouldn't want to do that, would we~! *They laugh loudly, pulling out their tarot deck, shuffling it around performatively*
00:15:45
...Tarot reading huh? Normally, I wouldn't believe in stuff like that but... I'll put aside considering who and what you are
00:16:19
*They toss the deck in the air, the cards fluttering around and suddenly flying all around the room, before they hold out their hand, catching The Fool, showing it to you* You were quite correct to asses the situation, Fool~
00:17:33
...Most would take that as an insult but considering what you're presenting here, I'll take it as a compliment
00:17:58
You have turned into the occasional optimist, which makes me ask this question: *All of the cards fly back into an organized deck in front of them, except the one they are holding* Why do you feel like that about the man who killed your family~?
00:20:14
...I'll tell you why I feel that way... let me put it into words first
00:20:50
Up until that point, I felt nothing but hatred... but when I saw what was essentially just a person forced to do something terrible accepting their own death... I felt sorry for him
00:21:23
...Learned that guy had a family of his own he was protecting... in a sense, I can't HATE him... but rather feel sorry for him
00:21:49
*Looks at Qedes with a slight glare* But I'm betting you're gonna say 'fate' destined that right?
00:22:11
*They chuckle a bit* Would you say you are a changed man Draco~?
00:23:08
...In a sense, yes. I had changed ever since that day, became regretful of my rampage... except for one part
00:23:40
What I did to the inquisition that ordered my family's death... I'll never regret it
00:23:53
Guess you could say raising that warrior's kid was a new beginning... since you're going off the Tarot for me
00:24:31
*They stand up, starting to slowly walk around the room* You have changed quite a bit, but you are still quite the firecracker~! Tell me, when I say that multiple of your friends will die from the direct results of my actions, how does that make you feel~?
00:26:20
...Angry... very, very angry
00:26:49
*Glares at Qedes* But I know fate isn't set in stone... so why mention it?
00:27:08
It is not, but I will be doing my best to follow the design in the blueprints, so to say~ *They stand behind your chair* So Draco, do you know what your new loved ones will look like as they die~? Because I do~! *They laugh uproariously*
00:28:41
*I glare at you... before giving you a pitying chuckle*
00:29:07
It's funny... had you never mentioned that you know what'll look like... I'd have been shaken
00:30:06
*I then narrow my eyes* But now I know for a fact, I can prevent that
00:30:21
Oh of course, Draco, the big threat in the room, willing to defend his friends from the big bad~! *They stop the laughing* Allow me to show you~! *A vision of sorts plays in front of you of the group being stabbed, bleeding out, crushed, or hit with fatal magic spells* I was not lying about your journey being treacherous, that is guaranteed~
00:32:41
...Thanks for letting me see that... let me ask you something Qedes... what do you know about the mechanics of time?
00:33:15
*I give a Cheshire grin after saying that*
00:33:36
More than you Draco~! I don't suppose that this will get the point across then... *They ponder*
00:34:42
...Then you must know about the theory that if you gaze into the future... that means the future changes
00:35:17
Because what one sees is merely a POSSIBLE future
00:35:24
And while that's possible... lets just say, I know how to plan ahead~
00:35:34
*I look straight at Qedes* So tell me... is this what fate has determined? Or is it merely a path one can take?
00:35:57
I am an agent of fate Draco, I do my best to keep it steady on the path, not letting it branch off. My goal is to keep you on that path, and I will do anything in my power to do so~ *They sit back at their desk, facing you* So tell me, do you think you can out-plan the near omnipotent being who always knows what your plan is~?
00:38:37
*I chuckle* See... that's the funny thing here... I have no plan besides this decleration
00:39:08
*I raise a finger before pointing at you* I reject the reality you've set. AND REPLACE IT WITH MY OWN!
00:39:22
So tell me, Qedes... what are the chances I'll declare war on fate if it means protecting everyone?
00:40:00
*They chuckle* Another reference from Draco, as always~ *They fake yawn, sitting back in their chair* I'd bargain to say the chances of it are high, given everything~
00:41:14
Then I'll let what happens next decide... because whatever Fate does, I'll counter it with all that I've got
00:42:04
After all... I'm the Fool aren't I?
00:42:17
You are indeed... *They kick their feet on the desk* Do you know why I brought you here Draco~?
00:43:20
...I have a multitude of guesses... one of them is to mess with me psychologically
00:43:55
Another is to try and MAYBE warn me of what's coming... but that's far too hopeful... and cliché
00:44:16
Maybe a possible fight to 'test my resolve'?
00:44:35
*I raise an eyebrow towards Qedes* But those are my guesses... so what's the answer?
00:45:02
2/3~! You see, warning you of what's coming is a bit cliche, but allow me to explain myself. Do you know what it's like to sit in a room for eons alone~?
00:45:57
...Considering that a part of me empathizes with you on that, I'd say horrible and very much lonely
00:46:27
Possibly maddening
00:46:58
It is, extremely. Surely you've noticed that I like to play a few jokes and have a bit of fun~
00:47:17
...I think I can see that with my own eyes, yes
00:47:56
Let me tell you this: If I was truly doing the best of my ability to keep fate on the right path, I wouldn't have brought you here. I wouldn't have done that whole performance during our first meeting, and I certainly wouldn't be doing some of the things I will be doing~
00:49:37
...Alright, let me prove your trustworthiness then
00:49:57
*I point a finger at you* ...What's your favorite dinosaur?
00:50:09
Stupid sounding test... I know... but humor me
00:50:20
*Their eyes bore into your through the mask* ...
00:50:53
*I simply smile back, crossing my arms and staring at yours unflinchingly*
00:51:13
For all of your references and knowledge, you interrupt the "villains" monologue with a question about dinosaurs?
00:51:55
*I give a grin* Yes... yes I did
00:52:20
Meow_(:з」∠)_
00:52:20
*The glare they give you somehow becomes harsher even though blocked by the mask* No. *They wave their hand, and you suddenly don't have a mouth* Now I can continue~
00:53:22
*I roll my eyes* Clearly, you don't appreciate absurdist comedy
00:53:42
You see Draco, tell me: Why would I intentionally deviate from fate's path, when my job is to keep it on the path~? *Your mouth reappears*
00:55:33
Simple... because it's not fun
00:55:58
After all, if everything goes according to 'plan' then that's boring... but chaos~
00:56:14
Now that brings a level of spice, intrigue
00:56:23
But you tell me... where am I on the money?
00:56:44
I'd say you're almost directly on it~! If you could imagine fate as a story, as long as the major beats are hit, I can change a bit of the details~
00:58:25
*I shrug* Fair enough I suppose... besides... I know I can trust you a little
00:59:04
After all... you've yet to answer my previous question~
00:59:26
*I give a chuckle, knowing I'm poking and prodding you a little*
00:59:45
*They completely ignore the question* So here is my warning for you Draco, be sure to spread the word~: She is coming, and you may not know how to stop her until its too late~
01:01:07
*I shrug* We'll find a way... we always do
01:01:24
Because sometimes the best solution... is the most absurd one~
01:01:36
*I give a knowing smile*
01:01:43
*They wave their hand, you starting to fade from the study* Indeed it is Draco, if only you knew how bad its really going to be~
01:03:19
Worse comes to worse... I die saving everyone
01:03:33
*I shrug* I'm content with that
01:03:40
*They smile under their mask as you disappear fully, reappearing in the music studio*
01:04:43
** Qedes left the game (definitively). **
