[There's a crackling throughout the Tower's staircase and--painfully--the power comes back on. A moment later, all of the glamour goes back up: everything and everyone looks the way it should, although the food remains nutrition bars and water.

And then Ruana's voice comes on over the network. It's low, sleepy--furious.]


You broke it. You broke it! How could you! How could you! After everything--and now--and now--

[She laughs, though it's not a pleasant sound.]

You're all going to die in one year, you know. For real. Everything will turn off, and you'll all die when I can't maintain you anymore. Maybe I'll send you back before that, and let you all walk around your ruined wastelands for the rest of eternity. Or maybe I won't. Maybe I'll let you die here.

But for now... [Another, high-pitched giggle.]

My darlings, let's play a game.

[While this recording is open for comments, Ruana will not be responding.]

I would much rather die a final death and find my way to the Halls of Mandos than remain here.

After everything? After all the experiments, loss of free will, murders, cannibalism, destruction, and everything else? Of course we would stand against you however we could! While what we found wasn't exactly what any of us were expecting, we found what you were trying to hide anyways: the truth.

And how do you know if we'll die? Perhaps we'll find a way to maintain ourselves and restore our original homelands. Which, by the way, you, as far as I know, have done nothing to try and restore. You have just been tossing horror after horror at us, in an attempt to get us to pay off a perceived 'debt' from us. If you really cared, you wouldn't have done any of this. You would not be threatening us right now.

Which, of course, does nothing to rattle my heart. Your games, and those options have become the norm around here. Bring it, Ruana. Maybe we'll win this game of yours. And maybe we won't. But, even if we don't, I can assure you that we will probably survive to the end of this.

[Wow..someone had a lot of pent-up anger in there.]

Or we could finally take control of our own destinies.

[And for someone whose destiny has been written since the beginning of time - for someone dubbed "The Princess of Destiny," that's quite the statement.]

But yes, let us play a game.

[For freedom. For life. For truth. And now Zelda's playing for keeps.]

You torture us, twist our bodies and our minds, twist our very souls, and you have the gall to think we're wrong for fighting back against you? Perhaps if you had treated us with respect, treated us as people instead of toys this would not be happening.

We managed to get this far on our own. Give us your threats. We have a year, we have many people here with great minds and abilities. We will find a way to stop this.

And if we don't then at least our souls will no longer be in your hands.

[It seems someone had a slight change of heart after the last predicament...]

This... comes much harder than you people make it seem but...

I... wish to thank you.

For making me realize that I still held my own fate in my hands.

[ One year? Interesting. ]

Amusing, is it not?

How low you have fallen, how pathetic you are. Only a child whose toy is broken. Even the usually passive and subdued population of this tower is laughing at your threats.

Run back to your room, cry and hide your pathetic self behind your toys. Soon your tears will be all you'll have left.

I have spared very little time for gaming in my short life, Ruana, however if it involves further childish verbal lashings from you I think I shall take my chances with the wastelands.

"After everything". Ha! *It's short and breathy, the barest bark of a voice behind it.*

The glamours have been the only true accommodations you've made us - and I suspect I must thank Riki and Jason for that more than you.

Your "games" are indistinguishable from Jason's experiments. But very well, let's play. We will win.

[He debated whether or not to speak up; Waver was still deeply unsettled, though confidence was easier to muster when he looked like himself. Regardless of what he was made of now and forgetting any identity crisis, there were worse battles to fight for Waver Velvet. Things far more dangerous than even Ruana. He had a worse and far more evil opponent to break and destroy back home, with even more lives at stake.]

[If he started to fear Ruana now, how was he ever going to stand against the Holy Grail?]

[He faced the terminal with confidence, back in his black and green suit. Volumen Hydragyrum shifted and twisted in thin whiplike tendrils behind him, each looking sharp as the edge of a sword. Sunglasses on his head, ponytail with scarcely a strand out of place, and a confident smirk on his face--he was again absolutely the proud and formidable Lord El-Melloi II in appearance. His actual response was layered with no small amount of confidence and a shred of condescension.]


My dear girl, as I'm far more used to speaking in formal company please excuse me if I misuse the common and less decorative vernacular:

Bring it on.

[The liquid mercury behind him formed itself into the usual silhouette of a girl in a maid uniform in a matter of moments, performing as a farewell salute what looked like a very unkind hand gesture involving one's second finger.]

Everything must come to an end one day. The question remains, when is it time to allow that end to come or do we continue on until the choice is taken from us? It calls to us all.

And for some, it is hard to turn a deaf ear to that bittersweet song. Perhaps it is time to look upon the shores one final time.

Oh, and cry me the ocean then, will you not, ye pestilent, filthy beast. Are ye mad your little game be exposed for the great nasty lie it is, then? Good, says I, for I knew all along there be something remarkably childish about this whole damned scenario, and now we see the truth of it, aye?

Take your silly whining and fear mongering elsewhere. I've no desire to argue with the likes of spoilt children angry they didn't get their way with toys that, like as not, nary belonged to them to begin with. You're like a petulant child, ripping the heads off her dolls because she didn't get a sweet when she demanded it.

By all means, after this, there's naught much else ye could do to me to make me feel otherwise, and I ache for the chance.

If you think I will lay down and let you torture me for eternity, you have another thing coming. If I was willing to kill my own brother to save the planet, what makes you think you stand a chance.

[It's rather late when Lancer checks the network. When he hears it, he smashes the console he's at. Then, he moves to another free console.]

Hey, bitch. You think we're just the type to roll over and die? You don't know which souls you're fucking with!

[And there goes his fist. Through the other console as well.]

You are a child. "After everything," indeed. After everything you and your ike have inflicted upon, quite frankly I feel no pity for your dilemma. The 'glamour system' was the one kindness you have afforded us during our time here, Ruana, nothing more.

If you were the saviors you so facetiously claimed to be, you would have worked to restore our worlds and brought us home, out of your hair for eternity instead of containing us so we would have the opportunity break your toys, how awful. But you are not. You are unjust and cruel. You ignore your responsibilities, abuse the weak, and enforce unreasonable rules.

Perhaps we need only endure one year more of horrors before we are free of you. Thank you for that.

Have a good day, Ruana. I will pleased to be rid of this place, be it due to our success or our failure.

My, you are a child aren't you? When things don't go your way, you throw tantrums don't you?

[ Her voice is calm, not like it was before. She needed to be strong. For Kyoko and the other girls. She realizes it now. She's not alone anymore. ]

I'll play your game. And I'm going to win it. I won't let you make anyone else suffer! [ It was her job to protect the weak, and lately she feels like she hasn't been doing such a great job at it. ]

Prepare yourself! We'll rid this place once and for all!

Grow up.

[Minato rarely respond to anything the admins posted to the network. Everyone else would ask the questions he want to ask, and he'll watch and read.

But even Minato have his limits and desire to say something. So his fingers start typing rapidly.
]

The duty of the host was to look after and make sure their guests are cared for and protected with respect.

When the host failed that and threw a tantrum over their ill-received actions, it's no wonder something broke. Many somethings. This next game will probably break another "something". Will it be for our side, or your own?

Game on. People will choose to fight of their own free will.

[Who cares, Ruana? Shepard certainly doesn't.]

'After everything'? The most I can remember you doing is warping who you 'save' into your playthings and letting them run amok amongst their own friends. You call yourself a savior, but that doesn't hide the truth--you're no better than the manipulative scum I see in the galaxy.

One year? That's more than enough for me to gather people together and finally end this madness--People who will do whatever it takes to bring you down. So do whatever you want, but just remember--it's not going to break us.
