The big debate

Choi Zhangsun looks puzzled at Jon's abrupt departure, and follows.

Jonathon Coage stops and his hands fly to his back, guns tucked in his waistband under his shirt "What do you want..."

Blueray Darkes looks over her shoulder, she had a blank expression. "So hostile... and you call me moody. You ever seen those small wooden chapels? Made out of logs like my house used to be, only they were bigger and looked like this place sort of. Back then I used to believe in all that religious shit, til my parents were killed....".

Jonathon Coage perks a brow "Excuse my hostility...just seems everytime a Shadow is in here lately one of mine gets torn up.."

Blueray Darkes: In case you haven't noticed I have been gone for a few days.

Choi Zhangsun: And how long has the "No Shadows in the Church" rule been going on now..?

Blueray Darkes: Since when did we ever listen to the rules of mortals and lesser ones?

Jonathon Coage's hands twitch but his voice calms "Well it's been there something we can do for you, Blue?" Jonathon Coage grits his teeth "Do not insult me in my home Blue..."

Choi Zhangsun rolls her eyes, "Here we go again.. You're no greater being Blue. You're just a puppy we took in who went bad."

Blueray Darkes heaves out a breath, "Sorry Jon". Shakes her head at Choi, "What did you expect really? After what I went through you expect me to stay all pure and good? Paths change by fate or choice, mine was fate I just took advantage of it". She grew silent, "Anyway I was just remembering my old church, two hours drive by horse and cart since my father hated cars".

Choi Zhangsun: People have gone through worse and stayed good...

Jonathon Coage softens again, his hands leaving his back and at his side "I'm not pure...nor am I completely good. What I am is someone who enjoys doing the right thing. You don't need to be either to belong here, you just need to believe joy is not received by the pain of others."

Choi Zhangsun steps forward and wraps her arm around Jon's waist as a show of support, even though she knows his words won't have any effect.

Blueray Darkes: Parents murdered, house burnt down, grew up on the streets, bit by a wolf, killed with dark intent. Raped while having my back flesh cut off, ankles smashed, guts mashed up, lacerated muscles, ripped anus, bashed up shoulders, stabbed, dragged and beaten. *pauses* Joy is in found in lots of things....
Blueray Darkes: Yes Choi can really stay good after that

Jonathon Coage puts his hands on Choi's as he speaks "Do you know what kind of pain is felt when a mortal who is Divine has the blood of Dimentox in him?"

Choi Zhangsun looks at Blue hard, "And I've been through a lot myself. What happened to me in the Pit.. What Jan did to me outside the Haven..having to almost kill my own mother.. And yet I'm here, and you're there." Choi Zhangsun looks up at Jon, squeezing his hands. She didn't know about that..

Blueray Darkes puts her hands in her pockets arguing about the point of life events with Choi was rather pointless, she looks at Jon with a slight flick of her tail. "It hurts like burning hellfire I bet, same as a holy weapon used on a demon that flays their essence to shreds. The agony is unbearable...".

Jonathon Coage nods slowly as he nods to his office "Come on I think a convo like this requires some whiskey and a couch..."

Blueray Darkes: I can't drink whiskey....

Choi Zhangsun scowls but follows Jon.

Jonathon Coage perks a brow "What can you drink?"

Blueray Darkes: Anything that isn't whiskey, you know what that stuff does when mixed with my blood. Imagine it in my bloodstream

Jonathon Coage smiles softly "I have a little Vodka too...and I think a few cans of soda somewhere back there."

Blueray Darkes: Cool vodka and coke.

Choi Zhangsun: Jon do you still have.. the ones you got for me?

Jonathon Coage opens a bottom cabinet taking out two cans, one of coke and one of mountain do. He closes his eyes and his hands glow, chilling both cans frigid. He tosses one to Choi and smiles "Of course..."

Choi Zhangsun bites her bottom lip, and grins around it, intensely pleased he still remembered. She catches it and pops it open and sits, nursing it slowly.

Jonathon Coage leans back down and poors the cold coke in a glass, mixing some vodka in slowly before rising, handing it to Blue and taking a seat "For the record it was agaony...especially since I refused to feed..."

Blueray Darkes takes the glass taking a seat against the wall, she must be in an odd mood for her even to be this sombre and polite. Holding the glass she stares at it befora taking a sip, "Agony is a common thing in this city.....".

Jonathon Coage nods slowly "Experiencing that agony, I realized such pain is not something I wish for someone else to experience. In understanding pain fully my desire to protect others from it grew.

Blueray Darkes: See thats where we are different Jon, where as I know pain to the fullest. I only deem to protect my family and inflict pain on others, that is my nature these days.

Jonathon Coage shrugs "I use it to do the same, only I care for those outside my family as well."

Blueray Darkes rolls the glass in her hands, "Few outside mine get that privilage".

Choi Zhangsun heaves a sigh and decides to concentrate on her soda, since she rarely has any, rather than stressing herself out by arguing.

Jonathon Coage perks a brow "Do you think if I had been leading the Righteous when you were assaulted it would have even happened? Thats my aim, to stop what happened to you so senselessly from happening to others."

Blueray Darkes pulls her knees up a little taking a gulp of the vodka and soda, "I deserved it, I don't care what Del says I betrayed the Pack by my curiousity for Shadows". She shook slightly holding the glass tighter in her hand, "Its a good aim if you believe in it, but we will clash on it Jon. When I and mine are dishing it out, you're there stopping our fun".

Jonathon Coage nods "I know...but ponder this...what would you be like if it had been stopped. Further...would you ever want to see the same happen to another?"

Blueray Darkes: I suppose if it never happened I would be more neutral, I could have been an Omegan or something. -Closes her eyes for a moment to stop the soft hell glow of them- If I was still in that old frame of mind I wouldn't want to see anyone go through it, but I aint like that and I rather like corrupting people....

Jonathon Coage puts a finger in the air "Ah. Now what is fun about corrupting?"

Blueray Darkes finishes her drink hands the glass to Jon, "You take something that is innocent and twist it, make it in to something with a far darker purpose in life. You accomplish something not many would dare to do".

Jonathon Coage takes the glass and rises to refill it "Now what about taking something dark and reverting it back to neutral or even good? Harder or easier?" Jonathon Coage fills the glass with the still icy cool coke and pours in some vodka, returning to his seat and handing Blue the refill.

Blueray Darkes takes note of his movements, "Its a lot harder to turn someone back to neutral or good, I should know because the priest failed with me". She takes the offered glass with a nod, sips it gently making an aahh sound.

Jonathon Coage smiles "Now since it's harder, I find a much greater sense of accomplishment in it. Even though it's harder and happens less often I find it more rewarding."

Blueray Darkes: We can make them bad and you can try to make them good again, like a never ending cycle of one trying to accomplish what is their goal and their nature to do

Jonathon Coage nods "I agree there is a great need for balance...both sides require one another to exist. However when the balance is shifted, there is a serious problem. At the moment it is out of balance...and when corrected it will most likely be off balance to the other side."

Blueray Darkes blinks, "I really don't see anything out of balance right now, yes everything always has its oppersite. Like a coin has two sides, each side represents a different force in the world".

Jonathon Coage nods slowly "Yes. I wonder though Blue...could you ever see yourself changing again?"

Blueray Darkes runs her tongue along the rim of the glass, she tips it to her lips drinking half of the liquid. "Not really no, I enjoy being how I am far too much".

Choi Zhangsun continues sipping at her soda, finding to her dismay it's almost gone already. Damn small cans..

Jonathon Coage looks down to his hands and flexes them slowly "Well maybe one day that will change...I sometimes wonder what it would be like to have you in this family..."

Choi Zhangsun's eyes widen, she hides it behind the can as she tips it up to drink the last of her soda.

Blueray Darkes chokes on a mouthful of vodka and coke, "You serious"? She coughs thumping her chest with her fist, "Doubt it would happen unless the Shadows fell, I worked hard to rise through the ranks to second in command. Worked hard to earn their respect, and work for their benefit".

Jonathon Coage shrugs as he watches her choke on the soda and smirks a bit "It's just a thought. An interesting one at that."

Choi Zhangsun gets up to dispose of her can and sighs wistfully, wishing there was more..

Blueray Darkes takes a gulp to soothe her throat, "Demons don't really belong in church, sounds to me like you're plotting something".

Jonathon Coage smirks as he watches Choi "There may be another can in that cabinet...hand me one and I'll chill it.." he looks over to Blue and shrugs again "Del was one of our best members, a Knight and to this day a legend here."

Choi Zhangsun perks and leaps towards the cabinet, rifling through it. She gives a triumphant crow as she comes up with the very last can. She thinks briefly about saving it for later but decides to just have it now, being an instant-gratification kind of girl. She plops back down on the couch and hands it to Jon.

Blueray Darkes: Del who became an Omegan, left the Omegans and now wishes to ask the all important question to me. Legend has basis in truth, but it becomes something else over time.

Jonathon Coage chills the can with a glowing hand and hands it back to Choi while talking to Blue "None the his time here he was excellent and a true savior for some."

Choi Zhangsun nods her agreement and opens the can.

Blueray Darkes sighs softly, "A fallen saviour... ".

Jonathon Coage taps Choi's knee with his fingertips idly "All saviors is their fate. Their glory is found in the fact they freely accept it so that others may prosper."

Choi Zhangsun smiles at Jon and scoots down in the cushion to move her leg closer.

Blueray Darkes: I see...

Jonathon Coage rubs Choi's leg as he talks "But...thats my view on it at least. Others may differ."

Choi Zhangsun purrs and giggles at the same time, half-snarfing her soda, because her leg is ticklish.

Blueray Darkes stands up handing him the glass again, "Heh, I think I better go now".

Jonathon Coage takes the glass and nods "Of course...I do enjoy a little intellectual debate though, thank you for it."

Blueray Darkes smiles and felt uneasy now, the PDA not to her liking really. "Its not often I get the chance to show I have some intelligence, but then whats the fun in letting the city know I'm far from a simpleton? You are welcome".

Jonathon Coage smirks "Well...the guise I suspect is quite useful."

Blueray Darkes turns to head for the door, "It has its uses like a lot of things".

Choi Zhangsun: Good thing we know better.

Jonathon Coage waves as she walks out "Be safe, Blue."

Blueray Darkes looks back once just to grin, "Choi you are one who thinks of me as simple, stay safe yourself Jon".

Lulz of the day:

O Who shall, from this Dungeon, raise
A Soul inslav'd so many wayes?
With bolts of Bones, that fetter'd stands
In Feet ; and manacled in Hands.
Here blinded with an Eye ; and there
Deaf with the drumming of an Ear.
A Soul hung up, as 'twere, in Chains
Of Nerves, and Arteries, and Veins.
Tortur'd, besides each other part,1
In a vain Head, and double Heart.

O who shall me deliver whole,
From bonds of this Tyrannic Soul?
Which, stretcht upright, impales me so,
That mine own Precipice I go;
And warms and moves this needless Frame:
(A Fever could but do the same.)
And, wanting where its spight to try,
Has made me live to let me dye.
A Body that could never rest,
Since this ill Spirit it possest.

What Magic could me thus confine
Within anothers Grief to pine?
Where whatsoever it complain,
I feel, that cannot feel, the pain.
And all my Care its self employes,
That to preserve, which me destroys:
Constrain'd not only to indure
Diseases, but, whats worse, the Cure:
And ready oft the Port to gain,
Am Shipwrackt into Health again.

But Physick yet could never reach
The Maladies Thou me dost teach;
Whom first the Cramp of Hope does Tear:
And then the Palsie Shakes of Fear.
The Pestilence of Love does heat :
Or Hatred's hidden Ulcer eat.
Joy's chearful Madness does perplex:
Or Sorrow's other Madness vex.
Which Knowledge forces me to know;
And Memory will not foregoe.
What but a Soul could have the wit
To build me up for Sin so fit?
So Architects do square and hew,
Green Trees that in the Forest grew.

A Dialgue Between The Soul and Body, A. Marvell
