  3. SO: s]o[, acc]o[rding t]o[ the stars t]o[night, i'm supp]o[sed t]o[ have a fated enc]o[unter, even th]o[ugh that c]o[mes up all the time!
  4. GV: (O) ..uhh..what? (X)
  5. SO: s]o[ here's t]o[ a fated hell]o[ and such!
  6. GV: (O) Uhm, here is a...fated hello back? (X)
  7. SO: ha ha, it's f]o[rtune-telling. it's pretty silly, but it makes f]o[r an interesting way t]o[ say hell]o[ t]o[ s]o[me]o[ne at rand]o[m!
  8. GV: (O) Interesting indeed..no one ever approached me in such a manner. (X)
  9. GV: (O) It's kind of..uh...odd. (X)
  10. SO: ha ha, the bad s]o[rt-]o[f ]o[dd? i h]o[pe it isn't that.
  11. SO: w]o[uld it make y]o[u feel better if i ]o[ffered t]o[ read y]o[ur f]o[rtune? ]o[r w]o[uld that be m]o[re unnerving?
  12. SO: pr]o[bably m]o[re unnerving.
  13. GV: (O) ..it sounds unnerving. (X)
  14. GV: (O) But..uh..sure? (X)
  15. SO: ha ha, well, it just requires y]o[ur wriggling date and y]o[ur ge]o[graphical c]o[]o[rdinates, but since we just met, that's pr]o[bably n]o[t s]o[mething y]o[u'd want t]o[ give!
  16. SO: s]o[ ap]o[l]o[gies f]o[r, um, m]o[re ]o[ddness and awkwardness!
  17. SO: maybe i sh]o[uld have started with an intr]o[ducti]o[n?
  18. GV: (O) Probably. (X)
  19. SO: i'm epirra! it's nice t]o[ meet y]o[u. :)
  20. GV: (O) I'm Huklep. It's a, uh, pleasure. o_x\ (X)
  21. SO: ha ha, why d]o[ y]o[u have an x f]o[r an eye? did s]o[mething terrible happen t]o[ it?
  22. GV: (O) No..my horn...kind of...is blocking it. (X)
  23. SO: ]o[h! they must be a really interesting shape then! :)
  24. GV: (O) They're...kind of silly looking, if you ask me. (X)
  25. SO: stubby h]o[rns are far m]o[re sillier l]o[]o[king, i'd bet! y]o[urs must be distinctive!
  26. GV: (O) They are..i guess. (X)
  27. GV: (O) What, are you horns...uh..stubby? (X)
  28. SO: very stubby! they're the stubbiest ]o[f stubs and i guess that makes them pretty easy t]o[ manage, but still. talk ab]o[ut plain!
  29. SO: but then again being plain has its ]o[wn advantages, s]o[ i guess i sh]o[uldn't c]o[mplain! :)
  30. GV: (O) I think...having them easier to manage...would be much better. (X)
  31. GV: (O) Maybe. I guess..i don't think having stubby horns...would be that bad. (X)
  32. SO: ha ha, it's a difficult ch]o[ice! distincti]o[n ]o[r being plain, the eternal questi]o[n!
  33. GV: (O) Eternal indeed, i guess. I mean, i'd...rather have stubby horns and be able see...the 90% i'm missing out of my left eye. (X)
  34. SO: well, they aren't very threatening, stubs. but i'm n]o[t a very threatening tr]o[ll, i think! but then again, y]o[u d]o[n't strike me as ]o[ne either!
  35. SO: ha ha, well, seeing is a bit ]o[verrated. and my eyesight w]o[uld be terrible if i didn't have glasses! :)
  36. GV: (O) Glasses? Glasses...are so cool. (X)
  37. GV: (O) I make glasses..actually. (X)
  38. SO: :) that is awes]o[me! i've had the same pair n]o[w f]o[r sweeps, they're pretty plain and the lenses are a bit scratched, but they w]o[rk! and it's better than squinting at the pages, ha ha!
  39. GV: (O) I guess so..but...then.. (X)
  40. GV: (O) my horns...make my love for glasses...pretty...annoying.. (X)
  41. GV: (O) as i can't even...wear any.. (X)
  42. SO: well, y]o[u c]o[uld always wear a m]o[n]o[cle! that's alm]o[st the same as glasses!
  43. SO: and very classy, if i d]o[ say s]o[ myself!
  44. GV: (O) I've done so...but...my options with monocles are sort of...limited. (X)
  45. SO: if i ever c]o[me acr]o[ss a nice m]o[n]o[cle, i'll send the c]o[]o[rdinates ]o[f it t]o[ y]o[u! :)
  46. SO: if y]o[u'd like, ]o[f c]o[urse. why are they limited?
  47. GV: (O) well...i have to make them...and...my imagination is sort of...weak. (X)
  48. SO: maybe y]o[u just need inspirati]o[n! :) like maybe etching vines int]o[ the frame?
  49. GV: (O) Uh...maybe. But then...my hands are sort of...shakey. (X)
  50. GV: (O) But...i can...try? (X)
  51. SO: hm...maybe there's a way t]o[ d]o[ it with]o[ut y]o[ur hands! ]o[r try fixing y]o[ur hands!
  52. GV: (O) Fixing..my hands? (X)
  53. GV: (O) I don't know if...fixing my shakey hands...is a thing i can do. (X)
  54. SO: like, figuring ]o[ut why they shake and addressing fr]o[m there! if it's s]o[me s]o[rt-]o[f nerve thing, i bet there are remedies f]o[r that ]o[ut there!
  55. SO: and if it's a mental thing, i'm sure there are ways t]o[ ]o[verc]o[me that t]o[]o[. :)
  56. GV: (O) I think it's...a mental thing..but my Lusus would never...give me the time to...actually start fixing it. (X)
  57. SO: that's n]o[t very helpful ]o[f y]o[ur lusus! why w]o[uld he d]o[ that?
  58. GV: (O) He probably things...it's a waste of time..and that i can just do the work normally...with my shakey hands. (X)
  59. SO: maybe y]o[u can try talking t]o[ him! if it's imp]o[rtant t]o[ y]o[u, f]o[r y]o[ur hands t]o[ be better. if y]o[u like them like that, i sh]o[uld pr]o[bably shut the hell up and st]o[p being s]o[ n]o[sy!
  60. GV: (O) Well...i could try..but...when i complain about something....he usually yells at me for about an hour...and maybe pecks at me a little. (X)
  61. GV: (O) He's...kind of...really mean. (X)
  62. SO: he d]o[es s]o[und like a maj]o[r assh]o[le. :( but maybe phrase it l]o[gically, in a way that he'll understand!
  63. SO: like, if y]o[ur hands are fixed, y]o[u'll be a better w]o[rker, f]o[r example! better and faster!
  64. SO: ]o[r y]o[u c]o[uld kick his ass and d]o[ what y]o[u want, but i get the sense that y]o[u w]o[uldn't d]o[ that!
  65. GV: (O) Haahah..yeah...probably...he's kind of...really giant..and stuff. (X)
  66. GV: (O) So...kicking his ass...would be...hard. (X)
  67. SO: ha ha, size d]o[esn't matter if y]o[u're really smart! if y]o[u can set a trap ]o[r ambush him ]o[r ]o[therwise ]o[utsmart him, then it w]o[uld be easy!
  68. SO: if he's anything like an eaglebeast, at least! :)
  69. GV: (O) Uh...he's like...a vulturebeast... (X)
  70. GV: (O) But...he's kind of...always watching...and stuff. (X)
  71. GV: (O) So...doing so...would be hard. (X)
  72. SO: is he watching y]o[u talk t]o[ me right n]o[w?
  73. GV: (O) ...wow, uh, (X)
  74. GV: (O) no, actually. (X)
  75. SO: if he isn't, then maybe i can help y]o[u c]o[me up with a plan! if y]o[u w]o[uld like t]o[, ]o[f c]o[urse!
  76. GV: (O) Well...i mean...sure...but...i think talking to him...normally..would be good. (X)
  77. GV: (O) Less of a chance...of...getting hurt...or even...like...dying. (X)
  78. SO: ha ha, all right! i'll wish y]o[u the best ]o[f luck in that ]o[ne! and i'm sure y]o[ur lusus w]o[uldn't kill y]o[u!
  79. GV: (O) Probably not...but...you never know...with the...really mean ones. (X)
  80. SO: after all, c]o[nsidering what jerks think, he'd have ]o[ne less thing t]o[ have c]o[ntr]o[l ]o[ver! s]o[ i d]o[n't think y]o[u have t]o[ w]o[rry ab]o[ut being killed him!
  81. SO: unless if he's really ]o[ut ]o[f his think pan. in which case, it s]o[unds danger]o[us f]o[r y]o[u t]o[ be staying with him!
  82. GV: (O) Well...i mean...about what...jerks think...he'd have...one less thing to worry about. (X)
  83. GV: (O) I think...he's more...like that...but...i'm not sure. (X)
  84. SO: but ]o[ne less pers]o[n t]o[ bully! and when bullies are al]o[ne, they're miserable because there's n]o[ ]o[ne else t]o[ make miserable!
  85. GV: (O) ...wow...uh...i guess? (X)
  86. GV: (O) That...makes sense.. (X)
  87. SO: but y]o[u kn]o[w y]o[ur lusus better than i d]o[. s]o[rry f]o[r being pushy and such, that's just what i w]o[uld think!
  88. GV: (O) No..it's fine...being all..uh...nosy. (X)

  146. GV: (O) Sort..of. (X)
  147. SO: a simple miscalculati]o[n can turn the "y]o[u will have a fated enc]o[unter" f]o[rtune int]o[ "culling dr]o[nes inc]o[ming." and a mistake with making glasses, well...
  148. GV: (O) It just ends with you..not seeing..uh...anything. (X)

  153. GV: (O) Worrying just makes everything...a bit harder. (X)

  155. SO: ha ha s]o[rry i keep talking in circles. but that is g]o[]o[d advice, and my lusus says the same thing, ]o[r cl]o[se en]o[ugh, she w]o[rries en]o[ugh f]o[r the b]o[th ]o[f us, ha ha!
  156. GV: (O) No.. no it's fine. Talking a lot, i mean. And..uh.. (X)

  159. SO: ha ha, n]o[t quite! and it's all right, i d]o[n't read it as n]o[sy at all! :)
  160. SO: there's a l]o[t ]o[f stuff that i w]o[rry ab]o[ut, truthfully! but i think it's just silly paran]o[ia t]o[ keep myself ]o[ccupied, n]o[t seri]o[us at all, ha ha!
  161. GV: (O) Ah..well..uh... (X)
  162. GV: (O) I mean, what is there...to be...paranoid about? (X)
