Zarton's Light: HTS: The pact is in a panic. Trying to deal with their captured watcher, and visiting The Mad Teacher. How come The Sires haven’t picked up the Mad Teacher yet? Surely they would be observing her or taken her away. The Sires should have noticed she was one of yours like Colm was.

Context: Stormsworder, SammyBelle, Zarton, and Isleapy Hunter are doing missions together.




UC: ZARTON. ZARTON. ZARTON. BY DAY. SHE RESIST HIM. THE TEACHER. BY NIGHT. SHE IS HIS.

Stormsworder: Oh, boy.

SammyBelle: Uh-oh. Hello?

Stormsworder: She’s certainly not going to be yours forever.

SammyBelle: I realize UC popped up.

Stormsworder: Yeeep.

Zarton: Definitely a good surprise to hear from you. But eventually they will figure out the trick.

UC: YES, ZARTON. THE HERD LETS HER ROAM. WHY? THEY WATCH HER. THEY KNOW. THAT SHE KNOWS KNOWS KNOWS.

Stormsworder: (typing) I won't let your master keep her forever.

Zarton: Well, It does seem odd that the herd simply lets her… not be imprisoned like the others have.

UC: THEY SEEK THE CHILD. THEY SUSPECT HER. THEY ARE RIGHT. HE LAUGHS. THEY WILL NEVER BE FOUND.

Stormsworder: (typing) She means too much to me to let you keep her and torture her.

Zarton: Yeah they are reaching out in every direction now. Though the Pact is also more interested in their current “toy”.

UC: CHILD? SPECIAL. HIS NOW. WARM WITHIN HIS RED GLOW.

Stormsworder: (typing) I won’t let you keep ANY of them.

Stormsworder: Yeah, well, I’ll fight tooth and nail to get them back. Even you.

Zarton: Well hopefully they’ll bring a good challenge to win the child over.

UC: YOUR PACK BOASTS OF THEIR PROWESS, ZARTON. GRAND CLAIMS. DELICIOUS.

SammyBelle: Thank you. (while being unsuppressed, not related but amusing on timing.)

Stormsworder: When you have the people I care about, I won’t stop til I save them.

Zarton: It definitely helps to be with people with such ambitions. With the goals in mind.

UC: THE HERD WATCHES. HOPES SHE WILL LEAD THEM BEYOND BEYOND BEYOND. WHERE HE TOOK THEM. THEY ARE BORN TO WIN.

Zarton: Well if they can’t go beyond to the child. Then they will get the information that the Mad Teacher holds.

Stormsworder: Her name is Staneck and I will free her.

UC: PERHAPS. HE HOLDS HER IN HIS JAWS. LET THEM TRY TRY TRY

SammyBelle: Well, that’s a taunt.

Stormsworder: You think I am afraid of you? Or your master? We’re going to get all of you free of him. RK hasn’t given up on you and neither will I.

Zarton: Well it makes the hunt so much more exciting.

UC: LISTEN TO THEM! HE LIKES YOUR FRIENDS. SUCH AMBITION. SEE SEE SEE YOU YOU YOU SOON SOON SOON

SammyBelle: Heh heh. Riiight.

Zarton: Of course, and I will see you soon as well.

Stormsworder: I’ll tear the hunter out of you and Staneck if I have to.

(Discussion of going to TPB. Stormsworder hurries to the bunker and jumps in the portal.)

Stormsworder: Can you hear me? Do you remember me? ...I don’t know if it’s here or not. Does the name Joel mean anything to you? ...Probably not.

Watcher: joel i know who is i know that why

Stormsworder: “Joel I know who is I know…” How do you know him? Were you friends with him once?

(Storm is ejected from TPB.)

Stormsworder: Someone else come in. Uh, I asked it about Joel. It said it recognized the name, but it doesn’t know why.

(Sammy enters TPB.)

SammyBelle: Okay, so… you don’t remember why you know the name “Joel”? But… maybe you have a connection, or…

Zarton: Well, Joel was at 919.

SammyBelle: Right. ...Guys, I’m dealing with the phone too. (Sammy has Cursed with the Call.)

Stormsworder: Take screenshots if it speaks.

Watcher: a name, it was to be the name of

Stormsworder: “A name, it was to be the name of…”

SammyBelle: The name of what? The name of who? Do you remember? We don’t have a lot of time, though.

Watcher: family? who am i help me help me

Stormsworder: “Family, who am I help me…” We’re gonna help you remember who you are.

SammyBelle: We’re gonna help you, we promise we’ll help you. ...Uh-oh. Running out of time!

Stormsworder: Does it remember what happened to Joel?

(Sammy is ejected from TPB.)

SammyBelle: I’m out.

Stormsworder: Um… one of you maybe ask if it remembers what happened to him? Did it tell SAO about Joel?

Zarton: Uh, Joel was betrayed by a friend.

Stormsworder: Yeah. Maybe ask if it’s… well, if he was betrayed by a friend… hm. Does it know, like… maybe if it knows if SAO was involved at all?

Zarton: Joel did reside in the same house as you did. Perhaps it was a child, or maybe a husband?

Watcher: baby a baby they wanted a baby someday

Stormsworder: “Baby, a baby, they wanted a baby someday…”

SammyBelle: Oooohhh… Are they talking about the couple that’s across the street?

Stormsworder: No, I think they’re-

Watcher: joel who wanted the baby, my family

Stormsworder: “Joel who wanted the baby…” Uh… a son, maybe? Considering the Watcher’s age is 95, it had to be a son.

SammyBelle: Weird…

Stormsworder: Should we tell it… Should we tell it that SAO basically got him killed?

SammyBelle: Is that a good idea? I don’t have the Ciphers, so - well, I’ve already gone in, so…

Stormsworder: It’ll be Hunter’s turn to go in. He can still respond by text, so…

(The group spends several minutes working out technical details with Isleapy Hunter and discussing what to ask the Watcher. Hunter enters TPB while Stormsworder goes to 919.)

Isleapy Hunter: Is Joel your j- your child, or your grandchild? ...Watcher?

Watcher: who are you you wear our colors

Isleapy Hunter: Who are you and where are your colors…?

Stormsworder: You wear their colors. You wear SAO’s equipment.

Watcher: joel you say joel why

Stormsworder: Was Joel family?

Isleapy Hunter: I ask if… I ask about Joel because I’m wondering if you are related to Joel. I wonder how-

Watcher: wanted a child. my son wanted a baby

Stormsworder: “Wanted a child, my son wanted a baby…” Holy crud.

Isleapy Hunter: “My son wanted a baby…” ...So… you named the child “Joel”?

Watcher: loved the name joel? did he? but where

Stormsworder: Joel is gone.

Isleapy Hunter: Joel is gone. ...I’m sorry.

Stormsworder: ...Well, we are narrowing down… so, Joel lived in this house (919), and the Watcher lived in this house…

Isleapy Hunter: We’re getting closer.

SammyBelle: Wasn’t expecting that tonight.

Watcher: (to Storm only) losing you losing you losing you

Isleapy Hunter: We’re definitely getting closer to the identity.

Watcher: (to Storm only) baby never was baby never was

SammyBelle: More hammering! Let’s head out.

Stormsworder: It was tragic, what happened.

Watcher: (to Storm only) losing you

Stormsworder: I know… you loved him.

Watcher: (to Storm only) gone

SammyBelle: Well, we can’t talk to the Watcher anymore.

Stormsworder: It’s talking to me.

SammyBelle: It is what?

Stormsworder: I know what happened to Joel.

Zarton: Storm’s in 919.

(The group talks a bit more, but the Watcher seems to be gone.)
