(12/04 00:54:44) Logan Marcus: Logan settles in, next to Tiernan and opens the Thermos of tea.
(12/04 00:55:08) Tiernan Quinlan smiles and takes a cup.
(12/04 00:55:40) Logan Marcus: So, how much have you managed to catalog?
(12/04 00:56:40) Tiernan Quinlan: Oh, hardly any really. It's quite a lot of work. Right now I'm tryin' to at leas' get the significant constellations to start.
(12/04 00:57:27) Logan Marcus: Significant? Oh... those constellations to solve the journey here?
(12/04 00:58:59) Tiernan Quinlan: Yes, it seemed the logical place t' start with Minkata. Honestly, though. much of th' time I find m'self jus' starin' up at th' sky. It's so beautiful. Unspoiled... y'know?
(12/04 01:00:14) Logan Marcus: I do. It's as if no one has sullied the place... no light pollution... no intrusive structures.
(12/04 01:00:43) Tiernan Quinlan: I think the people who made these kivas felt the same.
(12/04 01:00:53) Logan Marcus sighs.
(12/04 01:01:30) Logan Marcus: I know what you mean, Tenny. I ... it's so quiet and beautiful, without so many people.
(12/04 01:02:05) Tiernan Quinlan: It reminds me of home.
(12/04 01:02:14) Logan Marcus: Not Ireland, I think.
(12/04 01:02:21) Tiernan Quinlan chuckles.
(12/04 01:03:16) Tiernan Quinlan: No. Arizona. I-I suppose the desert is really more my home than the Isles. My life there seems so different, y'know. Another life...
(12/04 01:03:24) Logan Marcus: Another life...
(12/04 01:03:42) Logan Marcus falls quiet. He sips his tea.
(12/04 01:04:00) Tiernan Quinlan looks over at Logan.
(12/04 01:04:26) Logan Marcus gazes into the sky, quiet. Almost sadly.
(12/04 01:04:31) Tiernan Quinlan: Logan?
(12/04 01:05:24) Logan Marcus: Hm?
(12/04 01:06:33) Tiernan Quinlan: I know things have been better with us lately, but you still seem detached.
(12/04 01:06:45) Logan Marcus: Oh... I have a lot on my mind.
(12/04 01:06:54) Tiernan Quinlan: You always seem to lately.
(12/04 01:07:48) Logan Marcus: Well... yes.
(12/04 01:08:22) Logan Marcus: It's just that... there's so much going on and I don't... I really don't know...
(12/04 01:08:40) Tiernan Quinlan tilts his head to the side. "What don't you know?"
(12/04 01:09:28) Logan Marcus: How much to tell you. If I'm being honest. And I want to be, especially with -you-, Tenny.
(12/04 01:09:43) Logan Marcus: Nothing turned out the way I was expecting, planning...
(12/04 01:10:09) Logan Marcus: I didn't intend to meet you, to like you as much as I do... You... I wasn't planning on you.
(12/04 01:10:33) Tiernan Quinlan hmms softly.
(12/04 01:10:57) Tiernan Quinlan: Yes.
(12/04 01:11:53) Logan Marcus: Logan traces patterns in the sand with a finger. They are vaguely D'ni in shape.
(12/04 01:12:40) Logan Marcus: I... need someone to trust. You... I don't seem to be able to find anyone else I can trust anymore.
(12/04 01:12:50) Tiernan Quinlan: You can trust me, Logan.
(12/04 01:12:59) Logan Marcus: I know that.
(12/04 01:14:26) Logan Marcus: There's a bit more to me than I told you. Or your friends.
(12/04 01:14:45) Logan Marcus looks at Tiernan. "But I think you already know that."
(12/04 01:14:51) Tiernan Quinlan nods.
(12/04 01:15:50) Logan Marcus: I -am- a novelist and I -do- have a home in Sedona. I have read your grandmother's books and have been to her seminars. All of that is very true.
(12/04 01:16:07) Logan Marcus: It's just that... there's more than that.
(12/04 01:16:35) Tiernan Quinlan nods.
(12/04 01:16:54) Logan Marcus draws in a deep breath.
(12/04 01:17:49) Logan Marcus: There was a reason I've been... unsettled, since you spoke to Harlan.
(12/04 01:18:05) Tiernan Quinlan nods.
(12/04 01:18:50) Logan Marcus: The man he told you about, Rafael Templeton?
(12/04 01:18:59) Logan Marcus: He looks at Tiernan.
(12/04 01:19:11) Tiernan Quinlan: You're him, aren't y'?
(12/04 01:19:25) Tiernan Quinlan takes a deep breath of his own.
(12/04 01:19:36) Tiernan Quinlan: That's a lot.
(12/04 01:19:47) Logan Marcus nods.
(12/04 01:20:52) Logan Marcus: There's so much more to it, Tenny. Really. He didn't understand. Nobody did... I-I thought my friends... the-the people who felt the way I did... that they understood, but... I don't think they do... I-I think...
(12/04 01:21:02) Logan Marcus breaks off and shakes his head slightly.
(12/04 01:21:33) Tiernan Quinlan: It got out of hand. They stopped listening to you and did what they wanted.
(12/04 01:21:46) Tiernan Quinlan is very quiet for a few minutes.
(12/04 01:22:47) Logan Marcus: Yes.... I never... wanted it to go so... so crazy. That wasn't what I'd meant to do at all. I just wanted... well... I wanted you all to leave. I never wanted anyone hurt.
(12/04 01:23:07) Tiernan Quinlan: And people were hurt and by that time--
(12/04 01:24:06) Logan Marcus: --it was out of my control. I... have these... visions, Tenny. They have been guiding me since my accident... since I fell ill a few years ago... before you came here.
(12/04 01:24:26) Tiernan Quinlan: You had an accident, Logan? You were ill?
(12/04 01:24:29) Tiernan Quinlan frowns.
(12/04 01:24:51) Tiernan Quinlan tilts his head and looks at Logan.
(12/04 01:25:48) Logan Marcus: I was. But I'm alright now. My visions, the messages I get... they're from the Maker and He told me I needed to make the Others leave.
(12/04 01:26:07) Tiernan Quinlan: Logan... i-is it Logan or Rafael?
(12/04 01:26:14) Logan Marcus sighs.
(12/04 01:26:23) Logan Marcus: Logan is my Surface name.
(12/04 01:26:56) Tiernan Quinlan: Alright. Logan, this is concerning. You were ill and now you have visions and hear voices?
(12/04 01:27:54) Logan Marcus: Well, yes, I suppose so. It's not so much actual images or voices in my mind, it's more as though these ideas come to me and it doesn't feel as though they're mine. I certainly didn't have them before I got sick.
(12/04 01:29:01) Tiernan Quinlan: Would you object to going to Phoenix t' talk to a doctor friend of mine? He's affiliated with Argon, so everything will stay private.
(12/04 01:29:15) Logan Marcus sighs.
(12/04 01:29:22) Logan Marcus: M-maybe...
(12/04 01:29:33) Logan Marcus falls quiet.
(12/04 01:29:53) Logan Marcus: ...
(12/04 01:30:30) Logan Marcus: So... does this mean... this is over?
(12/04 01:30:40) Tiernan Quinlan looks at Logan.
(12/04 01:31:06) Tiernan Quinlan: I wouldn't dump you over somethin' like this... it's jus'... a lot to take in.
(12/04 01:31:39) Tiernan Quinlan: I care about you, Logan. If you're ill, I want to help you get better.
(12/04 01:32:00) Logan Marcus nods quietly.
(12/04 01:32:44) Logan Marcus: It's just that, you and your friends are going to find out tomorrow anyway and I wanted to tell -you- first.
(12/04 01:32:59) Logan Marcus: I hoped it would be better coming from me.
(12/04 01:33:06) Tiernan Quinlan tilts his head.
(12/04 01:33:33) Tiernan Quinlan: Well... I'm not -happy- with you, Logan, but I understand. I think you did the best thing you could.
(12/04 01:33:58) Tiernan Quinlan offers his arms for a hug.
(12/04 01:34:10) Logan Marcus leans into the hug and sighs.
(12/04 01:34:36) Tiernan Quinlan: We'll figure this out together, Logan. -I- am not going to abandon you.
(12/04 01:34:56) Logan Marcus nods quietly.
(12/04 01:35:03) Logan Marcus: Thank you, Tenny.
(12/04 01:35:11) Tiernan Quinlan smiles softly.
(12/04 01:36:04) Tiernan Quinlan: Let's go get some sleep. For a while. Then we can look at the stars some more before the meeting tomorrow. I'll come with you and we can talk to everyone together.
(12/04 01:36:25) Logan Marcus blinks a little, then nods with a very deep sigh.
(12/04 01:36:30) Logan Marcus: Alright.
(12/04 01:36:36) ...Chat.log stopped.
