They won’t bring him out unless they have to. And at that point they would be getting desperate.

What this is, is isolation. Keeping you from seeing anyone or anything because they are getting ready to question you. If you’re lucky they will try to cut you a deal. If you’re unlucky they will use more heavy-handed tactics to get you to talk.

Well, I remember Dreamwalker in another time was chained up when he was imprisoned in a torture room, with the chains keeping him from using his magic. You seem to be just in a prison, with a bed no less to relax in (despite it being rough). You are not chained up like he is. If they had the intention to kill you, they would have put you in a worse prison like the one Dreamwalker was in. I don't think shooting will be involved unless absolutely necessary when meeting with Lorence...

I think if they wanted you to suffer before the interrogation, they would have chained you up like Dreamwalker was. This prison seems less harsh in comparison, so perhaps I agree, they are going to try to cut a deal... Lets just wait it out.

Are you being haunted by ghost, Ana? Well, at least Wicker Kid only seems to be observing you out of boredom, and I think when he said playthrough, he probably means this time cycle we're in if he sees each cycle as a playthrough in a video game. But maybe we should warn him that he might be a little too late to watch our journey since our journey may come to an end soon once Lorence shows up? I mean, I'm not sure what might happen when Lorence shows up to decide our fate.

I did have one dumb idea Ana, what if you were to draw that one ash tree skull symbol again here and fall asleep like you did back at home? Keep in mind that I don't think it will help you escape at all since it is more of an out of body experience, but it's more of doing it out of mere curiosity if anything, I mean it isn't like we can do anything else besides look out the window to get an idea where we are, and wait for Lorence to decide our fate... the only thing is, I don't see anything we can draw with unless you find a pebble and use that to scratch the drawing on the wall...

But before we decide whether to do that or not, I think we should mainly focus on learning more about Wicker Kid and why he is here, especially if he is going to stick around with us. For starters, I am interested in wondering what Wicker Kid finds confusing in this "playthrough"? I thought it was obvious: we lost a bunch of our friends during a hostage situation not knowing their fate, got taken advantage of while we were trying to do the right thing, reached a breaking point after all the anguish you faced to the point we found it difficult to trust others, got betrayed, and became imprisoned waiting for Lorence to decide our fate. I wonder what does he find confusing?

I don’t necessarily think the term “play through” is correct for this case either. It implies the same person is behind each game. I consider myself my own person with my own beliefs and morals. So maybe “new player” would be more appropriate?

Well change is neither benevolent nor malevolent. It makes sense you see us as opposites. What we all want is for progress to occur. But I guess to us, Lorence represents the opposite of progress, Stagnancy and rigidity, nothing changing except in small minute details that stack the deck in his favor. If the game never changes he can never lose.

I don't know, as far as end goals go, I think it's something to do with somehow ending up opposing Root and his followers in some way, whether we intend to (like Scarred Ana) or not (like me, fortune Ana) just to survive, which forces Lorence's hand to try to stop us.
It doesn't help that the Ash Tree somewhat urged us from the very beginning to take that route to try to stop Root in the first place when there are actually arguably other bigger threats out there like Absolution Prime, since Absolution Prime betrayed one of us versions of Ana in her cycle...

Hey Ana, while your talking to Wicker Kid, can you do me a favor and look out the window, just to get a feel of the location we might be in, or is pitch blackness the only thing out there?

You’ve seen every run...???

This is too good of an opportunity to pass. Having him on our side would basically increase our chances.

But Ana? Can you ask him one question for me? Why did my baby have to die...?

No. 947751 ID: e51896

Nothing but a black void, Ana? I wonder if that means you're not in the waking world at the moment and instead dreaming again having another out of body body experience. multiple times you were in something like a black void, it was in a dream like area. If so, this cell might just be not only a literal representation, but a metaphorical representation of the situation we're in being now stuck in a dark path with no escape

to answer his question of him wanting to tag along, the only appropriate response I can think of is: "whatever, do what you want, I don't even care what happens anymore. Just tired."

The only questions I have for him is: what is the point on even continuing on or caring at this point if it is now impossible to get any sort of happy ending and we're now just destined to fail in a bad ending or dead end, despite doing our absolute best to do the right thing. (Wow, sorry if that sounded depressingly nihilistic, wasn't my intention)

And also: since Wicker kid see's these lives a a different playthrough, ask if there ever been a moment when this game has been modded, or even hacked by someone in some way? I mean, all games are capable of being "hacked"

(I only want you to ask Wicker Kid that because I suspect there might be "hackers" in this "playthrough" that screwed us over big time*is thinking of Essence and Happy*)

Scarred? you alright? hello?
umm..... Ana, I think Scarred stopped working after finding out Absolution Prime killed her child, not Root.

As far as this decision goes... All I can say is that if our end fate is now guaranteed to be doomed, then maybe until that time comes, the only thing we can try to do is maybe at least try to give the next Anas in future cycles a little bit of a better chance and life in some way during this current cycle until we reached our doomed fate...

Wait, hold up, Wicker Kid said that Essence and us voices are glitches that he isn't sure can be patched out, but... as it turned out: Scarred Ana "debugged" Essence, "patched" her out of the "game". In other words, Scarred killed Essence. So... perhaps Ana, Scarred, and I should finish what we started and become debuggers for this world until Ana's doomed fate comes? That way, those glitches won't be present in future cycles to influence things in certain directions?

I mean, seeing as we are doomed to fail, maybe at the very least thinking in game terms, we can act as debuggers to patch out as many of the glitches that we can that are influencing the game/time cycle, thus updating this universe to 2.0 or something for future cycles. Perhaps maybe then, future cycles might have slightly different and maybe better outcomes for future Anas' cycles. Seeing as Scarred killed Essence, that is proof that this goal can be achieved before Ana's doomed fate, if difficult.

The thing is, this will also probably be a suicide mission for Scarred and I as us voices are also glitches that influence this world in Wicker Kid's eyes, and it is probably going to be a morally gray goal to accomplish as some glitches might actually be good people just as some glitches are bad people, and this will also mean we will have to stop being pacifists in order to take on the role of debuggers and upgrade this universe... hmmmmm... What do you think, Ana and Scarred?


I would tell Wicker Kid: we'll keep going, but we're not keeping our hopes up anymore, keeping expectations low, and staying unenthusiastic about everything.

but also say to Wicker Kid: Besides Essence and the voices, who and what else is considered a "glitch"? do you, Wicker Kid, have a list of "bugs" that needs to be "patched out"? we're asking because as it turns out it is actually possible to "patch out" those influencing "glitches", as one of the voices killed Essence, and we're debating whether or not to patch out as many of those "glitches" as possible to "update" the "game" for future cycles until our doomed fate comes.

Because otherwise, I'm not sure what other goals that is possible to accomplish at this point.

You know, Ana, I've come to the realization that when your time of death inevitably comes, AJ is going to perish along with you as well. I don't think we should bring AJ into this going forward knowing what is to come, which means we'll have to find someway for AJ to carry on without us, which means finding someone else to take care of him who isn't related to Absolution Prime in some way... hmmm...

Hey, I know this idea sounds crazy, but seeing as Lorence is someone who travels from cycle to cycle at the end of each one, and AJ is a god who gains power very quickly as time passes... what if we ask Lorence to take care of AJ in our place? AJ is a god who gains his powers as time goes on, and if he follows Lorence around from cycle to cycle, he might just be strong enough to hold his own against Prime and perhaps take Prime's place. I mean, I know that Lorence is working with a murderous cult, but as it stands, Lorence is AJ's best bet to survive as he is the only person that can travel from cycle to cycle, and it might give AJ a chance to make some kind of difference for the future cycles, and might even help change Lorence's personality for the better giving his life of living in a repeating cycle meaning. Maybe we should even make a deal where in return for AJ, Lorence will treat and help the future Ana's better in some way?

Plus, letting Lorence take care of AJ can also act as a great way to get back at Absolution Prime for what he did to your child, Scarred.

Ana, for right now before we ask this favor for Lorence, it might be best to get comfortable for this moment. To start, simply sit down, or even lay down on the prison bed to get comfortable and show Lorence you mean no harm, just give a simple:
"ok... I'm ready to talk. And afterwards, I have a very important request to ask you as well if you wish to hear it... please."

...

*breathing very heavily*

Be quiet. I don’t just want to get back at Prime.

I want him dead, more than anything in this universe. I want vengeance. I want him too look at me in fear for what he’s done. I want him to bleed. I want him to hurt. I want him to suffer. I want him to spend eternity in mortal agony, unable to die and in constant pain.

You don’t know what I want, Fortune. And I refuse to give an inch to this monster who thinks he is above us. You would give him the powers of a god? He who kills regardless of consequences? Nothing matters to him, only his routine and his way of life. The very thought of giving up that kind of power sickens me. And the fact you thought it a good idea... If I were able I’d slap you for a fool.

Talk with him if you want. But I will give him nothing, except his own ideals back to him showing them as nothing but hypocrisy and garbage.

Sorry, but...

Scarred... I still stand by my decision. I know it sounds weird, but in my heart, I just believe that It is something that has to be done, like it or not.

You say you want Absolution Prime dead, but as it stands, it is impossible to do that, at least not in this cycle considering everything.
If you truly want Prime dead, the only way this world would perhaps stand a chance against him is with AJ, but AJ is right now too weak. Even if he were to wait until the end of this cycle to mature and get stronger, he will still be like a mosquito in comparison to Prime. You really have no idea just what we'd be up against if anyone were to face him in this cycle.
The only way AJ can stand a slight chance is if he secretly survives and jumps through many many cycles, and as it stands, Lorence is the only person we know who is able to sneak through so many cycles and miraculously stay alive all this time. He is the only chance I know that may possibly let AJ grow and mature until AJ is ready to combat Prime in the far far future in another distant cycle, and take Primes place.
And besides, even if Lorence only see's AJ as a weapon, which I doubt, his girlfriend Felafaf will set Lorence straight. I know she will... and who knows, she may even act as a nanny, or maybe even a mother to AJ. And if she acts as a mother to him, you'll bet she'll do what she can to try to get Lorence to treat AJ like a son, maybe even soften to other people as a result... but who knows?

...

I only ask, Scarred, that you trust me on this idea. Please.

But... Right now though, we are getting way too ahead of ourselves with this idea. For now, we should mainly focus on seeing what Lorence wants to ask us. Afterwards, we'll decide on whether to ask lorence about AJ or not, considering I think we are in for a very insightful conversation.

I would never give him anything. Let alone the son of a god.

Lorence is no better than Prime. Do they both kill people to keep their status quo? Do they think themselves above the consequences? You can stand behind your decisions and your logic all you want. Make all the long winded speeches your mouth can make. Doesn’t change the fact that your idea could potentially kill off millions of lives, regardless of the consequences and what someone like Lorence could do to influence AJ. Do you remember that alternate time line? AJ and WC changed to reflect the nature of that Ana. Do you honestly want to give him up to someone like him?

Damn you then.

No. 948519 ID: e51896

...Lorence sitting on a chair, while you Ana is sitting on a seat that can also be laid down on... wait, I just realized, is this a setup for psychological therapy? If so... hey Ana, it might be difficult given how the bench looks, but pretend that the bench you are sitting on is a comfy couch. And if you don't mind... I think I'd like to sit next to you, even though you can't see me doing that. Scooch over please, Ana. *sits next to Ana* Don't worry, you can still lay down where I am sitting if you need to Ana, since I'm not corporeal

And Ana, I notice just now that tears were falling only from your right eye where AJ is and not your left eye, and you even mentioned you are losing ability to show emotion... therefore, I don't think those were your tears, those were AJ's emotional tears.

Absolution Junior, you don't have to speak if you don't want to, but I want to let you know if you can hear me is: you are going to be alright. None of what happened to Ana and us was your fault. it is alright to cry AJ, as it shows you have humanity in yourself despite being a god, but just remember you are going to be alright. And because you are showing emotion for Ana, it gives me relief that you will be able to help Lorence himself gain back some of his morals and meaning in his life if he agrees to adobt you from Ana. And with those emotions, I know you will have a grasp on what humanity is to potentially become a better god to care for this world and humanity when you take the place of Absolution Prime, and even save Ana in future time cycles...

And Scarred, listen closely: I apologize but, I'm still following my heart with what I believe is the right thing to do now no matter what, which is salvaging what we can left in Ana's cycle when everything else is ruined. And the most important one to salvage next to Ana's life before her end is Absolution Junior. I refuse to let AJ perish along with Ana's eventual fate, and the only way for him to survive and grow now is if I can convince Lorence to keep AJ secret, and get AJ stronger in future cycles to eventually match up against the demon Absolution Prime.
And I think the only way I can convince you to take my side and agree with my choice, Scarred, is if I prove to you that Lorence is not the monster you make him out to be, and everything we thought we knew about Lorence was all a result of misunderstandings and misconceptions from not seeing things from his perspective. I'll show you that he is also human like Ana is. Besides, if he truly is a monster who kills without regards of consequences, he would of killed Ana by now and not be wrestling with this dilemma he has. If he didn't have feelings, he would not of dated Felafaf. There is more to Lorence we're not seeing, and I'm going to reveal those to you.

And even if Lorence is a monster, I believe AJ can free Lorence from his sins and help him change for the better by giving Lorence the responsibility to take care of AJ not as a weapon, but as a son. This isn't just about saving AJ, but saving Lorence's humanity as well, Scarred.

Mainly, I'm begging you now to believe in me on my choice, Scarred, like I have believed so much in your choices even though I despised some of them that even lead us to here, like threatening Rosalia with a thumbs up, or hurting Logan's daughter thinking it was Essence, or choosing not to go back to the alternate timeline to name a couple.
If you believe in me, then come here, and sit next to Ana and I on this therapy prison bench couch as we'll appreciate the company, and relax your anger. Let me take action for this scenario this time like I have let you take action for previous scenarios the other times. I am going to clear the air between us and Lorence and prove to you that Lorence is actually a good person. If you don't want to believe in me, you can remain standing. I won't take offense, but I'm going to do what it takes to save AJ's life no matter what.
>>
No. 948521 ID: e51896

Sorry Ana, to start, I would tell Lorence this: "Before you decide our fate, maybe it'll help your choice if we clear the air between us. As of now, I only want nothing more than to seek out closure to unanswered questions we may have of both of us to clear up doubts we have. I've come to realize that there have been a lot of misunderstandings and misconceptions we have about you and misunderstandings you've had about us that lead us to our doomed fate, and I want to at least clear those misunderstandings up by asking you questions, and letting you ask us questions before you decide our end fate. I even have a very important request for you afterwards."

if he agrees, then we will need to address two important things before we can truly start discussions: Dervan and the Conductor. We should let Lorence know that Dervan uses those business cards to spy on people just in case Dervan is trying to spy on this conversation if Lorence doesn't know already know about Dervan's spying. This is hopefully to gain a little bit of Lorence's trust.
And we need to confess that we were looking into the past because if we end up forming a truce with Lorence, the conductor could waltz right in to ruin that truce by telling Lorence what we were doing, ruining everything. It's better if Lorence heard us confess from our mouths instead of it being revealed through the Conductor's mouth.

First ask Lorence "Before we start, are you aware that Dervan not only uses those business cards to communicate and use as portals and transportation, but also to secretly uses those cards to spy and listen in on people who own those business cards?"

Afterwards, tell Lorence "I also have a confession: I went to look into the past on how the fog got started back when I thought I knew what I was supposed to be doing. But after the voices found out the dire consequences, and started learning more about the world, we decided to stop looking further, only getting up to the point a little after one of the kids died and where the two kids were driving in a vehicle. Please forgive me, but I wanted you to hear it from me, and not from the Conductor"

After we tell him those, then we can truly start asking Lorence questions and let Lorence ask us questions to clear up misunderstandings.

That’s cute.

If you despised my actions so much, why didn’t you stop me? You had the power to leap forward and stop me anytime you wanted when I swung my fist at Logan’s daughter, but you didn’t. You also forget most of those weren’t even my fault to begin with. Essence tricked me, tricked us in both the cases of that doomed timeline and when I struck Logan’s daughter. Don’t you dare point the finger at me when you had the power to stop me yourself or when things were behind our control.

Also you talk as though I didn’t view AJ as son, as a person. Have you not seen my right eye? Honestly, you even bothered to look? Where do you think those markings came from? I’m speaking from experience. He is a person and just like you claim, I would protect him with everything I have to give. He is not Absolution Prime, but I will not see him given into the hands of someone who is no better than him.

So, please, convince me. No, really I want you to try and convince me. How someone can retain their humanity when they live for a cult’s ideals where the main idea is “sacrifice your humanity?” Who has killed him self off numerous times to take the place of each Lorence. Who even the pompous Ash Kid over there calls him “the never changing.”
>>
No. 948565 ID: e51896

I thought their ideology was "sacrifice your mortality" not "sacrifice your humanity". For context, Dreamwalker is an immortal god, and he seems pretty close to the concept of humanity despite being immortal, even choosing to be a part of Laura... I miss him already, but he needs to stay with Laura. I wonder how they are now

I didn't stop you those times because sometimes, your actions can be very quick and unexpected that it becomes too late to even discuss your actions or stop you before I can even react, like when you threw those bombs at Essence without asking me first before I even got the chance to make a plan with what to do with those bombs during the battle.
And I didn't even knew at that time you would throw a punch at Logan's daughter. I chose the option to ask questions when Essence gave the option to either hurt her or do something else, and I thought you would choose that same option id did, but instead you unexpectedly threw a sucker punch thinking Logan's daughter was Essence. And when you did, it was already too late to even stop you because it was so quick and unexpected.
Other times, I was just too cowardly to speak out to stop you because I worry that you would outright scream and threaten me for thinking out an idea you hated, or for trying to stop you from doing something I didn't like and as a result you might drop your respect for me and not want to be my partner anymore. For that, I apologize for being cowardly back then, But to make up for it this time, I've decided not to be a coward and stand firm for what I believe is the right thing so we don't make another regretful decision. I'm making this decision as your friend, not your opponent, "tough love" as they call it.

That said, while I'm sad you are not sitting next to Ana and I like I asked as I was hoping you would believe and have faith in me, I appreciate that you are at least still giving me the chance to show you that there is more to Lorence that you're not seeing, and giving me the chance to try to convince you the choice I want is the right thing.

...

and Scarred, I want to apologize if I implied that you didn't see AJ as your son. That wasn't what I meant at all. I believe you are a great mother for him. Probably the best damn mother. But I know that eventually, a mother bird has to let her son fly off to serve their purpose, and I think it is AJ's time to be sent off to live through future cycles and grow up or else the nest will be too small for him to survive in.

(inner thoughts: I don't know if it is true or not if Lorence himself can't change, but I might have to see if we can use that tarot vision to see Lorence's tarot card and see if at least his tarot carded fate can be changed. We haven't used that in a while. I was hoping we wouldn't use it as I hate using magic after all that happened after using any sort of magic, but maybe Felafaf was preparing us for this moment? I don't know if we should use it or not... lets see how things go with this conversation between Logan and Ana goes with the things I wanted Ana to say...)

Well well... this is very important to note: did you hear what Lorence said there? he said: "You have no idea what other things that is threatening existence, Andrew Goodwill isn't the only threat that is trying to become part of this world"... so this means that even Lorence himself see's the potential threat to existence that Andrew Goodwill would cause.

that is common ground that we just found with Lorence and us. Both us voices, and Lorence sees Absolution Prime, and as we just found out now, Andrew Goodwill as a threat to humanity. These are common threats he see's that we ourselves see as well even if Lorence's way of doing things is much more extreme.
And all this time we all thought that he was trying to summon Andrew and cause an end to existence like Cera and Root wanted. Lorence is well aware of the potential dangers Andrew could cause and wants to prevent that.

Ana, I would tell Lorence: "I never expected you to feel sorry for me, I already accepted my fate and was even contemplating sacrificing myself. I just wish I could have known so much earlier you saw Andrew as a threat like I do and have known much earlier that Absolution Prime was dangerous to humanity like you do. If I'd known, I could of helped you in some way... But with what little time left I have before you kill me, I want to help you now considering what we learned just now, whether you accept the help or not. I just want to do the right thing before whatever happens to me"

To show we meant what we said, tell Lorence, like I wanted you to earlier, about how Dervan uses those business cards to spy and listen in on people, like the business card Lorence has now. Dervan could have be spying on him this whole time.
The reason why I want you to do this Ana is because Lorence admitted he is paranoid, and telling him about Dervan's spying might be important for him to know if we are to form any kind of truce.

Also, I still think we need to confess about looking into the past before the Conductor himself tells Lorence himself and ruins that trust between Lorence and us that is trying to be built. Better to rip off that band-aid now and tell Lorence ourselves before he hears it from the Conductor.

Mmhmm.

So, are just going to ignore the fact that he also just admitted he was the one who sent Stitch to kill us in the shop and who also maimed and possibly killed Blacky? It’s also kind of messed up when we get down to it. Lorence even got Jack the Shopkeeper as a curator now.

If we may, I think from this point it is for the best that we should have this debate elsewhere as to not further frustrate Ana while she is focused on having a civil discussion with Lorence. https://tgchan.org/kusaba/questdis/res/107070.html Sorry to frustrate you Ana, we'll take this debate elsewhere, but we are not leaving you either. We'll still be watching over and giving you suggestions.

but the short version as to explain about that incident with Stitch, it is all about the perspective of what Lorence saw in relationship to what he knew, and what was going on, such as Logan being in the same location as Ana, and whom exactly Logan works for (Prime).

Ana, tell Lorence "I found out too late what was going on around us in this world, and I understand what you did to my friends and me was an act of the ends justifying the means from the knowledge from previous cycles..."

"...But Lorence... with your actions of sending Stitch at me or threatening my friends, you and Root still deeply hurt and traumatized me, even to the point of us getting too scared to think logically and act in impulse trying to defend ourselves, forcing us to make bad decisions and lead us to this point of no return...

"You're one of the many people who broke me the most, Lorence, And even though I am doomed now, and you may see your actions as just, I want to know if you feel any kind remorse for your actions. After everything you did to hurt me, I just want to hear you apologize for what you did to me."

If Lorence thinks he is above an apology, Ana, tell him "look at your watch you stole from that house. it is a memento of your wife that clings you to your humanity and remember your good morals. Your wife was strong enough to apologize to you for her unforgivable actions, and you were strong enough to forgive her. I am strong enough to forgive you, but I first need to know you are strong enough to apologize. Not just to me, but to yourself."

"Umm... hmm. I'm not sure if I should say this since Root stated he wanted to keep this fact a secret, but I think it has to do with how my voices had once tried to save Root before way back when he was still in a wheelchair with muscular dystrophy when Delilah was holding him over a flight of stairs threatening his life to let go. Derrick was there too to try to save him."

"Basically, Root mentioned once to Derrick that his life was a combination of miserable events, and before my voices and Derrick tried to save his life, he hated the world and its cruelty. but Derrick and my voices' act of trying to rescue him gave compassion to his perspective and made him want to be better."

"Maybe Root saw that he and I had a lot in common, both of us stuck in a series of miserable events, both of us having voices that guide us, both of us having the entire populace act cold towards us, all that jazz."

Don’t forget he is also probably in love with you... or at least the idea of you... gross.
