Post by Kelsei A. Taylor »

(07/19 11:14:21) Chat.log started...
(07/19 11:14:27) To Tiernan Quinlan: shorah tenny
(07/19 11:14:41) From Tiernan Quinlan in Tiernan Quinlan's Hood: Shorah!
(07/19 11:15:25) Kelsei A.T. waves hello
(07/19 11:15:29) Tiernan Quinlan waves hello
(07/19 11:15:34) Kelsei A.T.: how're you today?
(07/19 11:15:51) Tiernan Quinlan: Doin' better, not a lot of work today!
(07/19 11:15:55) Kelsei A.T.: thats good :)
(07/19 11:15:58) Kelsei A.T.: rest is good, for sure
(07/19 11:16:05) Kelsei A.T.: i just spent the morning cleaning house,
(07/19 11:16:14) Kelsei A.T.: just some vacuuming and taking out the trash, but...
(07/19 11:16:19) Kelsei A.T.: exhausting work in the heat.
(07/19 11:16:36) Tiernan Quinlan: Heh. Was workin' on straightening up and restockin' some things.
(07/19 11:16:38) Kelsei A.T.: im hoping to take it easy the rest of today.
(07/19 11:16:51) Tiernan Quinlan: Aye, same. May take a run out later, not sure.
(07/19 11:17:02) Kelsei A.T. nods
(07/19 11:17:08) Kelsei A.T.: i may have to make a grocery run too...
(07/19 11:17:21) Kelsei A.T.: we'll see if im feeling it.
(07/19 11:17:36) Tiernan Quinlan: Heh. Haven't taken th' bike out for a while, but thinkin' of it.
(07/19 11:17:47) Kelsei A.T.: oh i havent ridden a bike in years
(07/19 11:17:48) Kelsei A.T.: sounds fun
(07/19 11:18:32) Tiernan Quinlan: I usually jus' use it t' go from th' town out here an' back, but haven't jus' gone on a ride in a while.
(07/19 11:18:49) Kelsei A.T.: sometimes breaks are good,
(07/19 11:19:04) Tiernan Quinlan nods.
(07/19 11:19:12) Kelsei A.T.: with everything winding down in Naybree, Calum's told me he's taking a short break before diving into Mysterium Stuff.
(07/19 11:19:28) Tiernan Quinlan: Ah, it's comin' up fast, isn't it?
(07/19 11:19:40) Kelsei A.T.: Cal thinks the Age's cliffs are as steady as they'll ever be, but he's waiting for final checks from everyone else- should be done in the coming weeks,
(07/19 11:19:49) Kelsei A.T.: yes, Mysterium is pretty close,
(07/19 11:20:14) Tiernan Quinlan: Y'all plannin' on doin' a tour when y'bring the books int' Chiso?
(07/19 11:20:25) Tiernan Quinlan: I'd like t' see it.
(07/19 11:20:34) Kelsei A.T.: Tour? nah.
(07/19 11:20:45) Tiernan Quinlan: Jus' let folks explore?
(07/19 11:20:49) Kelsei A.T.: I think I'd prefer folks to investigate on their own
(07/19 11:20:53) Kelsei A.T.: it's the spirit of the matter,
(07/19 11:20:58) Tiernan Quinlan chuckles.
(07/19 11:21:03) Tiernan Quinlan nods his head
(07/19 11:21:08) Kelsei A.T.: we had to peer back through the overgrowth, and so shall the explorers.
(07/19 11:21:20) Kelsei A.T.: we're thinking September at the latest,
(07/19 11:21:31) Kelsei A.T.: depends on how exhausting the first part of August is
(07/19 11:21:51) Kelsei A.T.: also gives Keith more time to deal with the Butterfly issue in Highgarden.
(07/19 11:22:11) Tiernan Quinlan: Ah, well... Hm... Y'know I was thinkin', perhaps we should let folks know about th' first aid packs we've put t'gether. So they can stop by and pick one up.
(07/19 11:22:19) Tiernan Quinlan nods his head
(07/19 11:22:38) Kelsei A.T.: first aid kits are a good idea,
(07/19 11:22:52) Kelsei A.T.: though I think we've managed to cull back the sharpest of pokey edges...
(07/19 11:22:57) Kelsei A.T.: possibly.
(07/19 11:23:00) Kelsei A.T.: ...
(07/19 11:23:08) Kelsei A.T.: it's probable some have grown back by now
(07/19 11:23:09) Tiernan Quinlan: Aye, we've been handing them out when folks come by, but I'd like everyone t' jus have them when they go explorin'.
(07/19 11:23:23) Tiernan Quinlan: Nyota wants to do a few more first aid classes.
(07/19 11:23:27) Kelsei A.T.: Maintainer Suits would be a good idea for some folks too, now that we have them.
(07/19 11:23:52) Tiernan Quinlan: Aye. Would make me feel better, knowin' folks are safe.
(07/19 11:23:58) Kelsei A.T.: Calum said he was testing a solo mode for the wall yesterday, apparently now folks wont have to run from one side to the other of Gahreesen.
(07/19 11:24:13) Tiernan Quinlan: Oh? A solo mode for th' Wall?
(07/19 11:24:24) Kelsei A.T.: yes, lovely idea if you ask me,
(07/19 11:24:37) Tiernan Quinlan: Yep. Make it easier t' get a suit, definitely.
(07/19 11:24:37) Kelsei A.T.: i dont like running...
(07/19 11:24:40) Kelsei A.T. giggles slightly
(07/19 11:24:47) Kelsei A.T.: not pointlessly, anyways
(07/19 11:24:56) Tiernan Quinlan: Heh! Runnin' is good f'y', y'know.
(07/19 11:24:56) Kelsei A.T.: the back and forth is what kills my enthusiasm
(07/19 11:25:01) Tiernan Quinlan: If y' can anyway.
(07/19 11:25:12) Tiernan Quinlan chuckles.
(07/19 11:25:18) Kelsei A.T. smiles
(07/19 11:25:37) Kelsei A.T. sighs...
(07/19 11:25:52) Kelsei A.T.: I haven't seen 'Ami' again any time recently,
(07/19 11:26:01) Kelsei A.T.: I hope that girl's alright.
(07/19 11:26:23) Tiernan Quinlan: I did visit her hood, didn't see her though.
(07/19 11:26:30) Kelsei A.T.: Calum's still waiting for someone to talk to him about this "harlan" fellow.
(07/19 11:26:33) Tiernan Quinlan hmms.
(07/19 11:26:46) Tiernan Quinlan: Aye. D'you know anythin' about him?
(07/19 11:26:59) Kelsei A.T.: Not much.
(07/19 11:27:23) Kelsei A.T.: the Harlan Mason... masan? Anyways, the guy Calum's looking for is supposedly a cult leader of some kind
(07/19 11:27:28) Kelsei A.T.: Children of the New Seed.
(07/19 11:27:45) Tiernan Quinlan: The New Seed? Odd...
(07/19 11:27:57) Kelsei A.T.: mmh.
(07/19 11:28:20) Kelsei A.T.: I haven't heard much of anything about them,
(07/19 11:28:39) Kelsei A.T.: rumors here and there about some small commune of folks who think they're descended from D'ni who migrated to the surface.
(07/19 11:29:11) Kelsei A.T.: i've heard the theory from plenty of folks down here in the general community about that being what the "Call" even is,
(07/19 11:29:17) Kelsei A.T.: so I haven't thought much of it.
(07/19 11:29:35) Kelsei A.T. crosses her arms, and leans against the bridge railing
(07/19 11:29:52) Tiernan Quinlan: Decended from D'ni? Strange idea, tha'.
(07/19 11:30:08) Tiernan Quinlan: I-I mean... tha's... interestin'.
(07/19 11:30:25) Kelsei A.T.: Ben's situation comes to mind, doesn't it?
(07/19 11:30:39) Tiernan Quinlan sighs. He nods slowly.
(07/19 11:30:44) Tiernan Quinlan: Aye, it does.
(07/19 11:31:03) Kelsei A.T.: I'll admit, i've considered the possibility myself with my own family history,
(07/19 11:31:19) Kelsei A.T.: there were some... eccletic personalities in my ancestry
(07/19 11:31:22) Tiernan Quinlan: I mean... there's legends all over th' world about people decended from th' fae...
(07/19 11:31:36) Kelsei A.T.: but genetics wise nobody's pointed out anything off when I've had blood tests.
(07/19 11:31:54) Kelsei A.T.: mmh,
(07/19 11:31:57) Tiernan Quinlan: Perhaps these D'ni folks could have been th' people we called th' Tuatha De Danan, an' other mythic races.
(07/19 11:32:11) Kelsei A.T.: supposedly, the word "URU" on the surface hails from D'ni,
(07/19 11:32:33) Tiernan Quinlan: My family is said t' have fae blood, f' instance. Though, tha's part an' parcel of bein' Irish, isn't it?
(07/19 11:32:45) Kelsei A.T.: I heard tales, back in the day, that the word was introduced to the people on the surface via a traveler who claimed they came from a deep underground city.
(07/19 11:32:48) Tiernan Quinlan chuckles.
(07/19 11:32:50) Kelsei A.T. giggles
(07/19 11:33:02) Kelsei A.T.: you look perfectly human to me, Tenny. not a stray fairy wing in sight!
(07/19 11:33:10) Tiernan Quinlan laughs
(07/19 11:33:22) Kelsei A.T.: :)
(07/19 11:33:25) Tiernan Quinlan: Heh.
(07/19 11:33:41) Kelsei A.T.: I can't write off the possibility that some folks have D'ni ancestry, though.
(07/19 11:33:44) Tiernan Quinlan: Aye, well...
(07/19 11:34:05) Kelsei A.T.: we know there were survivors of the Fall, Atrus' family, who made it up,
(07/19 11:34:07) Tiernan Quinlan: I've seen enough strange thin's in me life, so I can't discount th' idea meself.
(07/19 11:34:22) Kelsei A.T.: and there's all the talk of fan-shaft workers who went missing near the start of D'ni's history here.
(07/19 11:34:34) Tiernan Quinlan: Aye. Ah, there's a man I would have loved t' meet. Atrus.
(07/19 11:34:39) Tiernan Quinlan nods.
(07/19 11:34:56) Kelsei A.T.: mmh. Yeesha would be my personal pick,
(07/19 11:35:05) Kelsei A.T.: atleast we have hope she's still alive in the modern day,
(07/19 11:35:30) Kelsei A.T. shakes her head.
(07/19 11:35:32) Tiernan Quinlan: Well, if we can ever make it to Releeshan, we might be able to finally find out.
(07/19 11:35:40) Kelsei A.T.: maybe,
(07/19 11:35:49) Tiernan Quinlan: I'd like t' go someday.
(07/19 11:35:53) Kelsei A.T.: true,
(07/19 11:36:04) Kelsei A.T.: i think we'll have to hold ourselves content with Rei'schu, though, for the time being.
(07/19 11:36:15) Kelsei A.T.: apparently it's pollen season right now,
(07/19 11:36:23) Tiernan Quinlan: Oh aye. Any new Age to explore is wonderful.
(07/19 11:36:41) Tiernan Quinlan: Heh. Perhaps I should stock up on antihistamines.
(07/19 11:36:46) Kelsei A.T.: might be worth it, yes,
(07/19 11:36:54) Tiernan Quinlan chuckles.
(07/19 11:36:55) Kelsei A.T.: speaking of D'ni ancestry
(07/19 11:37:04) Kelsei A.T.: Calum met Athsheba's granddaughter, in the age.
(07/19 11:37:11) Kelsei A.T.: did he mention that?
(07/19 11:37:25) Tiernan Quinlan: No, I don't recall him sayin' anythin'.
(07/19 11:37:26) Kelsei A.T.: apparently she's some big-shot huntress.
(07/19 11:38:10) Tiernan Quinlan: Interestin'! I'd love t' meet her m'self.
(07/19 11:38:14) Kelsei A.T.: given the wildlife there... "That's no small title," as Calum put it
(07/19 11:38:20) Tiernan Quinlan: Heh.
(07/19 11:38:27) Tiernan Quinlan chuckles.
(07/19 11:38:37) Kelsei A.T. giggles
(07/19 11:38:44) Tiernan Quinlan grins.
(07/19 11:38:48) Kelsei A.T.: yes, I'd like to meet her as well,
(07/19 11:39:04) Kelsei A.T.: if only to pick her brain about her grandmother's life,
(07/19 11:39:19) Kelsei A.T.: Naybree, the Cathedral, and all the related insanity of the Fall...
(07/19 11:39:34) Kelsei A.T.: it's rare we have a direct line to D'ni itself these days.
(07/19 11:39:44) Tiernan Quinlan: Aye.
(07/19 11:39:49) Tiernan Quinlan nods his head
(07/19 11:41:09) Kelsei A.T. hums quietly,
(07/19 11:41:36) Kelsei A.T.: i wonder what the future holds,
(07/19 11:41:39) Tiernan Quinlan: Well, we have Ben now, a possible link t' th' D'ni, an' th' possibility of interactin' with this huntress, so it's openin' up, at least research wise.
(07/19 11:41:52) Kelsei A.T.: true, so very true.
(07/19 11:42:19) Tiernan Quinlan: Perhaps we will be able to find a much more solid way to find out about this 'D'ni blood'.
(07/19 11:42:23) Kelsei A.T.: though how likely is it Ben even knows anything about D'ni itself, even if he is one, or descended from?
(07/19 11:42:40) Kelsei A.T.: he seems very sure about his surface life, from what little he's remembered so far.
(07/19 11:43:35) Tiernan Quinlan: Well... the brain is an odd thing. Memory might return, it might not.
(07/19 11:43:41) Tiernan Quinlan sighs.
(07/19 11:43:44) Kelsei A.T.: mh
(07/19 11:44:29) Kelsei A.T.: is it possible we've been barking down the wrong tree, considering possibilities he from another version of Earth?
(07/19 11:44:38) Tiernan Quinlan: He is an enigma, definitely.
(07/19 11:44:55) Kelsei A.T.: for sure.
(07/19 11:45:03) Kelsei A.T.: cant rule anything out until he really starts remembering things.
(07/19 11:45:12) Tiernan Quinlan: How he got here, if that is th' case, though, would be the mystery.
(07/19 11:45:15) Kelsei A.T.: if he could start remembering family, or friends...
(07/19 11:45:30) Kelsei A.T.: it could help narrow things down for sure.
(07/19 11:45:32) Tiernan Quinlan: As far as I know, there's no way to link to alterate dimensions of our Earth.
(07/19 11:45:53) Kelsei A.T.: as i understand it, outside of Yeesha's instance targeting... yes.
(07/19 11:45:54) Kelsei A.T.: but...
(07/19 11:46:02) Kelsei A.T.: those instances seem to be hollow copies,
(07/19 11:46:07) Kelsei A.T.: no human life to them
(07/19 11:46:09) Tiernan Quinlan: Aye.
(07/19 11:46:36) Kelsei A.T.: if they did, you'd think we'd run into copies of ourselves
(07/19 11:47:00) Kelsei A.T.: i haven't ran into some other version of myself down here, yet, so it's incredibly unlikely.
(07/19 11:47:00) Tiernan Quinlan: Aye. Th' string theory ideas...
(07/19 11:47:29) Tiernan Quinlan: There are many different ideas on how or why one might not want to meet their alternate dimensional self.
(07/19 11:47:37) Kelsei A.T.: mhm
(07/19 11:48:11) Tiernan Quinlan: A friend of mine has her own... er... 'theory', as well as others I've read in physics texts.
(07/19 11:48:48) Kelsei A.T.: ah?
(07/19 11:48:49) Tiernan Quinlan: But that leads to many strange avenues of theoretical physics, and 'weird' physics... heh.
(07/19 11:48:54) Kelsei A.T.: indeed
(07/19 11:49:38) Kelsei A.T.: the Art is weird enough as it is,
(07/19 11:49:53) Tiernan Quinlan: My friend said that if one meets their alternate self, that could end up destroying the dimension.
(07/19 11:50:13) Kelsei A.T.: a terrifying thought,
(07/19 11:50:19) Tiernan Quinlan: Aye. Aye...
(07/19 11:50:34) Kelsei A.T.: personally, I suspect there wouldn't be any weird interactions like that,
(07/19 11:50:38) Tiernan Quinlan: It would be interestin' to see what th' Writers thought about it.
(07/19 11:50:45) Kelsei A.T.: but maybe that's more of a hope than a suspicion
(07/19 11:51:09) Tiernan Quinlan: Aye.
(07/19 11:51:14) Kelsei A.T.: I asked Calum once.
(07/19 11:51:24) Kelsei A.T.: he went on an hours long spiel about the multiverse.
(07/19 11:51:34) Tiernan Quinlan: Heh! Th' multiverse is stranger than anyone really knows...
(07/19 11:51:36) Kelsei A.T.: never once touched on the Art aspect itself, even though that was what I'd asked about.
(07/19 11:51:43) Kelsei A.T.: ...I've not asked since, to be honest.
(07/19 11:51:54) Tiernan Quinlan chuckles.
(07/19 11:52:06) Tiernan Quinlan: I'll have t' sit down sometime and chat with him about it.
(07/19 11:52:18) Kelsei A.T.: be prepared for an earful,
(07/19 11:52:56) Tiernan Quinlan: I've spent years studyin' science, physics... I'm ready f' tha'.
(07/19 11:53:02) Tiernan Quinlan grins.
(07/19 11:53:10) Kelsei A.T.: :)
(07/19 11:53:40) Tiernan Quinlan: Ah, it's been a while since I've been in any Age... I'd love t' go back an' explore.
(07/19 11:53:53) Tiernan Quinlan: Particularly the 'weird' ones.
(07/19 11:54:03) Tiernan Quinlan sighs.
(07/19 11:54:06) Kelsei A.T.: I'd consider Naybree 'weird' enough with the plant life
(07/19 11:54:36) Tiernan Quinlan: Heh. I'll definitely need to make a trip there.
(07/19 11:54:36) Kelsei A.T.: While Calum was in Rei'schu I fielded some questions about the moons.
(07/19 11:55:07) Kelsei A.T.: something's quite strange about their orbit, apparently, according to some folks who specialize in that stuff.
(07/19 11:55:14) Tiernan Quinlan: How many moons does it have?
(07/19 11:55:16) Kelsei A.T.: two
(07/19 11:55:19) Tiernan Quinlan: Ah!
(07/19 11:55:23) Kelsei A.T.: they're fairly large in the sky, too,
(07/19 11:55:26) Tiernan Quinlan: Interestin'!
(07/19 11:55:39) Tiernan Quinlan: Oh, I'd -love- t' see tha'!
(07/19 11:55:54) Tiernan Quinlan: I'd be tempted t' set up an observatory there, if I could!
(07/19 11:56:00) Kelsei A.T.: :) soon enough, my friend,
(07/19 11:56:07) Tiernan Quinlan grins.
(07/19 11:56:08) Kelsei A.T. 's KI beeps.
(07/19 11:56:15) Tiernan Quinlan tilts his head.
(07/19 11:56:18) Kelsei A.T.: ah, if you'll excuse me, I gotta go take care of something.
(07/19 11:56:27) Kelsei A.T.: thanks for the talk, Tenny :)
(07/19 11:56:28) Kelsei A.T. waves goodbye
(07/19 11:56:30) Tiernan Quinlan: Sure thin', Kelsei!
(07/19 11:56:34) Tiernan Quinlan waves goodbye
(07/19 11:56:39) Tiernan Quinlan bows
(07/19 11:56:55) ...Chat.log stopped.
