[The video opens to a young man dressed in purple, looking a bit anxious.]

...Oh man, I really hope this thing is working. I don't think I broke it, but it's not like the 'Gear, so I don't know if it's actually transmitting...

[He studies it for a moment before finally relaxing. An easy smile crosses his face and he leans forward a bit, actually managing to look at the camera.]

Well, if this thing's working, then hi! I just woke up here this morning, so I'd like to know what's going on. The last thing I remember is going to bed in [the Team Rocket base, but he's not going to mention that] Goldenrod, and now I'm here. I don't think this is like that weird dream everyone had - this doesn't look like that castle, after all - but correct me if I'm wrong!

[He steps back from the terminal and reaches up to absently tug at the collar around his neck. For those of you who recognize this man, it might be a bit of a surprise to see that the collar is blue.]

Oh yeah, what are these for? I definitely didn't have this on when I went to sleep. It's kind of annoying, but I can't get it off. Is there any reason for that?

[Ryuunosuke pauses, tapping a finger to his chin in thought. As he's thinking, a strange ghost floats into the frame and starts pulling faces behind Ryuunosuke's back. He doesn't seem aware of it at all.]

I think that's about it. I guess I'll be here in the library if you want to come talk to me directly, otherwise I'll respond on this thing! ...Assuming it's working, that is. I'll feel really dumb if this isn't broadcasting...

[He reaches over to shut the camera off, still smiling innocently.]

[Typing comes slowly to Gilles, who never used a keyboard in his life, and whose fingernails are almost more like claws than human nails. Nevertheless, these shortcomings aside, a conversation with Lancer and the example of the anon meme have given him an inadvisable idea. He is about to join the proud ranks of those who have asked for love advice on the Tower Network.]

my friends!!

i come to you to ask your advice ! i believe i might be in love but how do you you tell if oyu are?? if iam how do i maek my intentions knowN? please advice me as to what i should do?

my thanks!

[Also, as Gilles is big and obvious and takes ages to dramatically type his replies, it is quite possible for one to encounter him in the library, where he is eagerly awaiting replies that may assist him in his hour of need.]

Hello, Tower. I've been away for a while, so I apologize for that. I'm not here to speak about myself, however.

People come and go here as a fact of life.
[ Had this been delivered verbally, this statement would have been entirely matter-of-fact. ]

Rather than dwell on that...

I would like to hear of them. Those who are here, those who aren't. Those who've arrived recently and those who've left.

Whatever you'd like to say.

If you please.

alright, since we're back to asking played out, meaningless philosophical questions in between, you know, posts of actual value, I figure we MUST be bored.
so, in my infinite generosity, I'm putting up another one of these.
don't worry, no need to thank me! I'm just looking out for everyone's best interests.

same drill as the last time.
select "anonymous" and go nuts.
talk some trash, make that love confession you're too spineless to say otherwise, play anonymous hangman.
you'll feel better afterwards.

(seriously, though, friendly reminder: no1curr.)

It's starting to get cold. I heard the power was out for a long time last winter, so I'm trying to make things like gloves and scarves. If anyone in particular wants some, please let me know. Also, if there's anyone who could make cloaks or something else like that, it would be a good idea to do that.

I might as well say it now too, November 30th is Saint Andrew's Day, and I'd like to try to observe it. Assuming nothing prevents it from happening, I'll be preparing a feast on floor 25 on that day. Everyone's welcome to it.

A few questions for you.

If someone's existence or action is so reprehensible as to require a form of vengeance, is it then 'right' to act against them? Does one evil act justify another?

Furthermore, does any act justify murder in the name of what's 'right'? (Assume our example is in a place where death actually has normal consequences.)
