Proclamation 7 ♚ 8/17/09

Has anyone seen Euphemia li Britannia? Her... name disappeared off the contact list and I'm trying to figure out where the hell she went.

...D-don't get me wrong, assholes, I don't care! I just... don't want my vassals leaving without permission!


Euphie... Report... Report, dammit...

Either help me find her, or fuck off.

...It's not the same for you.

...Euphie helped me come to terms with my mother's death... and my hatred of love.

Do you even know what that means to me? Even... even making friends couldn't do that completely.

...Forget it. It's futile.

Both of the other people I knew here... were gone after their names vanished.

One of them is still gone. Another came back, but... without his memories of here. ...It doesn't matter anymore.

...

.....

.......

... You know, whoever that is, I think she's gone.

But... you know.

[identity profile] demonichymn.livejournal.com 2009-08-18 03:51 am (UTC)(link)
...Yeah, she's gone. It... it doesn't matter anymore, anyway. If she's gone, she's gone.

[identity profile] kyudousha.livejournal.com 2009-08-18 03:52 am (UTC)(link)
...

... Don't sound so fatalistic. She might come back.

[identity profile] demonichymn.livejournal.com 2009-08-18 03:53 am (UTC)(link)
It's not fatalistic, dammit! It's just the truth!

...When people come back, their memories don't come with them.

[identity profile] kyudousha.livejournal.com 2009-08-18 04:02 am (UTC)(link)
I think that there are better ways of thinking about the 'truth', really.

... But yeah, they don't, do they. I was here before too, but... I can't say I remember anything from that time, really.

But... that doesn't mean you can't treat them the same way if they come back, right? I mean, they're still the same person. Just the situation's changed a little.

[identity profile] demonichymn.livejournal.com 2009-08-18 04:05 am (UTC)(link)
...I hadn't thought of that.

[identity profile] kyudousha.livejournal.com 2009-08-18 04:09 am (UTC)(link)
I didn't think you had.

I think Somarium's proof enough that people still are who they are, even if they're being taken in from different periods of their lives, really.

... But enough about that. All this sentimental stuff is just getting so... ugh.

[identity profile] demonichymn.livejournal.com 2009-08-18 04:11 am (UTC)(link)
Yyyeah, I'm not too happy with it either.

So did you ever end up making pudding?

[identity profile] kyudousha.livejournal.com 2009-08-18 04:12 am (UTC)(link)
Yeah, been there, done that. I even made cake.

Didn't see any pretzels, though. But there's a bakery somewhere that I heard had stuff like that. You might want to check it out.

[identity profile] demonichymn.livejournal.com 2009-08-18 04:16 am (UTC)(link)
Good work. I'll consider that a successful first mission, I think.

[identity profile] kyudousha.livejournal.com 2009-08-18 02:21 pm (UTC)(link)
Yeah, great.

So when do I get paid?

[identity profile] demonichymn.livejournal.com 2009-08-19 03:07 am (UTC)(link)
Haaaaahahahaha! Now I remember why I hired you, you're pretty much a demon yourself!

Anyway, I guess whenever you have some free time you could come by the place I'm staying and dig through my magical shit if you wanted. I stay in an abandoned warehouse in the Industrial District, it shouldn't be too hard to find- it's the only one with my flag on it, after all.

[identity profile] kyudousha.livejournal.com 2009-08-19 03:50 am (UTC)(link)
... Yeah, I seriously hope that's a compliment, you.

But that sounds pretty good, actually. I'll drop by then, if you don't mind. I don't exactly like working for free, you know? And besides, I can take a look at your allergy while I'm at it. Saves me the extra trip.

[identity profile] demonichymn.livejournal.com 2009-08-19 04:39 am (UTC)(link)
Most humans don't have that kind of attitude towards life. It's refreshing.

Sure thing. ...Just make sure not to get too close to the windows, I've set up some... booby traps there.

[identity profile] kyudousha.livejournal.com 2009-08-20 03:05 pm (UTC)(link)
Well, maybe you just haven't met enough of them. I can think of a lot of examples of money-obsessed idiots off the top of my head.

... And if I get caught in those, I'm getting damage pay.

[She doesn't say anything. It's clear that she is trying to be strong, but for whom is unknown.]

[identity profile] demonichymn.livejournal.com 2009-08-19 03:06 am (UTC)(link)
...Guess you haven't seen her either, Cornelia?

[identity profile] knightmare-hime.livejournal.com 2009-08-19 03:25 am (UTC)(link)
[She doesn't want to answer that. Even though her eyes remain indifferent, there is the smallest amount of jest in her voice. An ironic smirk.]

What happened to Corn Flakes?

[identity profile] demonichymn.livejournal.com 2009-08-19 04:39 am (UTC)(link)
Not exactly in a nickname kind of mood, you know?

[identity profile] demonichymn.livejournal.com 2009-08-19 04:46 am (UTC)(link)
...Don't make me say it.

[identity profile] demonichymn.livejournal.com 2009-08-19 04:50 am (UTC)(link)
...

Is your world at least peaceful?

[identity profile] knightmare-hime.livejournal.com 2009-08-19 04:53 am (UTC)(link)
[His words hit her hard and she takes a long time with her answer, her complexion growing pale.]

No.

[identity profile] demonichymn.livejournal.com 2009-08-19 04:55 am (UTC)(link)
Well, gee, I feel totally confident about her being okay now.

[identity profile] knightmare-hime.livejournal.com 2009-08-19 04:59 am (UTC)(link)
She's already dead.

[She doesn't know why she's telling him. Maybe it's because she feels guilty for never telling her.]

[identity profile] knightmare-hime.livejournal.com 2009-08-19 05:04 am (UTC)(link)
I apologize. I should not have spoken of such things.

[Pause.]

I should... go. [She glances at the buttons, searching for the one that will end the call.]

[identity profile] demonichymn.livejournal.com 2009-08-19 05:06 am (UTC)(link)
.........

I'm... I'm sorry.

[identity profile] knightmare-hime.livejournal.com 2009-08-19 05:10 am (UTC)(link)
[She blinks, holding back whatever emotion that is trying to surface in her eyes.]

Let me know if you need anything.

Goodbye.

[Click.]
