[14:04] Pepys Ponnier: I LIKE CAKE!!

[14:05] Roanoke Feuerstein: Do I have time to grab a snack?
[14:05] Viv Trafalgar: we'll be starting in a moment
[14:05] Beq Janus gives up on the chair and planks herself down on the carpet
[14:05] Finley Twine: yup... ye look suspi... sucp... loike yer guilty

[14:06] Annechen Lowey: West wall for the aproved nacks.

[14:06] Agnes Periapse gestures toward the snack table.
[14:06] Dreddpiratebob Streeter: unless you meant nackers
[14:06] Annechen Lowey: "snacks".
[14:06] Finley Twine: make shore ta get one o me an me new frien 'ere Miss Book!
[14:06] Pepys Ponnier: Oh? I'll have cheese on my Rye please

[14:07] Viv Trafalgar: I'm going to toss out a couple more chairs
[14:07] Jedburgh30 Dagger: YAY!
[14:07] Dreddpiratebob Streeter: HAHAHAHAhaa
[14:07] Serafina Puchkina: Miss Viv and I are pleased to welcome you all to the first Aether Salon of the new year. If this is your first salon, you are in for an entertaining hour, and to you returning salonistas, it is nice that you weren’t permanently, er, “altered” by last month’s craft.
[14:07] Agnes Periapse wagwags her tail happily.
[14:07] KlausWulfenbach Outlander chuckles
[14:07] Jasper Kiergarten: if you need a chair, IM me please, I can't keep up with the chat. This is a recording
[14:07] Agnes Periapse sinks into her seat, blushing.
[14:07] Serafina Puchkina: We are grateful to many fine people who helped make today’s event a reality – Miss Canolli Capalini of Capalini Fine Furnishings, for her incredibly useful salon chairs, and Miss CeeJay Writer for her support in publicizing this event and for the cappuccino machine and chocolates. Please check out her new cafe across the train tracks.
[14:08] Serafina Puchkina: And our grateful thanks to Doctor Obolensky for the amazing craft box. (I admit to playing with the contents of my craft box earlier)
[14:08] Serafina Puchkina: If you would like to join the Aether Salon group and receive notifications of future salon events, click the lower right hand corner of the large brown sign by the entrance. All tip jar donations go directly to the speakers.
[14:08] Agnes Periapse: ((woohoo Red))
[14:08] Serafina Puchkina: As a courtesy to all, please turn off everything that feeds the lag monster -- all HUDs and scripts, AOs, and the like. I encourage you to pencil in your calendars the date of the next salon, Amour! which will be held Sunday, February 15, at 2 pm slt. And now, I turn this over to my partner in crime, the talented Viv Trafalgar who will introduce today’s speakers.
[14:09] Serafina Puchkina takes a deep breath
[14:09] Redgrrl Llewellyn: smiles over to Master Twine and winks broadly]
[14:09] Dreddpiratebob Streeter: amour? like gauntlets?! coool!
[14:09] Finley Twine smiles.
[14:09] Viv Trafalgar: Thank you all for joining us!
[14:09] Viv Trafalgar: We have two distinguished speakers (oh we hope we will have two) ... one may say they are quite familiar with Villainy.
[14:09] Elina Koskinen sits on the sofa as no one else seems to do so...
[14:09] Viv Trafalgar: YES!!
[14:09] Beq Janus applauds
[14:10] Dreddpiratebob Streeter: yayy doc!
[14:10] Agnes Periapse cheers
[14:10] Doctor Obolensky: Gah, finally.
[14:10] Roanoke Feuerstein: Huzzah! A non-ruthed Doctor!
[14:10] Mosseveno Tenk claps and whistles
[14:10] Redgrrl Llewellyn: YAY!
[14:10] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: You were worrying the damen more than usual, Obolensky.
[14:10] Jedburgh30 Dagger: Doctor Ruth?
[14:10] Wiggy Undertone: You've met your match now Klaus! *cheers*
[14:10] Roanoke Feuerstein giggles.
[14:10] Viv Trafalgar: clears throat
[14:10] Jasper Kiergarten: ha
[14:10] Finley Twine laughs.
[14:10] Viv Trafalgar: And so that you know Just Who You are Dealing With, listen close –
[14:10] Dreddpiratebob Streeter dies
[14:10] Mavromichali Szondi raises an eyebrow
[14:10] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: I doubt that,
[14:10] Viv Trafalgar: Now on the stage, wearing the snazzy 'Peaceful Dictator' ensemble, weighing in at something around 80 kilos, and accompanied by his retinue of variously civilized-yet-threatening types, we have the Baron Klaus Wulfenbach.
[14:11] Redgrrl Llewellyn: Hurrah Gelving! [grins and adjusts her monocle]
[14:11] Viv Trafalgar: Known throughout the civilized grid for his floating nation of Europa, his yen for exploration, and his notorious control of Science, the Baron is a force to be reckoned with.
[14:11] KlausWulfenbach Outlander chuckles
[14:11] Mavromichali Szondi grins... widely
[14:11] Viv Trafalgar: The Baron is one of the most powerful Sparks - sometimes known as 'mad scientists' - of his generation. While declared on the side of good, his experience with the mind of the Villain makes him an expert in his field.
[14:11] Agnes Periapse folds her hands and listens.
[14:11] Annechen Lowey eyebrows.'
[14:11] Viv Trafalgar: And in the other corner, Babbage's local her-...er Evil Genius, Doctor Gelving Obolensky (CVB) - weighing in at possibly less than 50 kilos, counting his top hat and mustache, as well as the various devices hidden in his pockets.
[14:11] Viv Trafalgar: Documents have surfaced indicating that Doctor O moved to Carpania from Belgium almost a century ago, and attended the Royal Carpanian School of Science! for several years, before gathering an array of black marks the like of which had not been seen before, or since.
[14:11] Viv Trafalgar: He was apparently discharged before graduation, but the records have been sealed, and then stuffed into a large safe, which was riveted shut, disguised as a giant clam, and then dumped into the middle of the Black Sea. Or so he tells us.
[14:12] Viv Trafalgar: Recently, the fiend has brought his machinations to Caledon and Babbage, and has threatened Steam Sky City with a giant mechanical man known as Lord Smashington II, nearly enslaved all of Babbage with a HypnoRay Cannon of unusual size, and endangered modesty itself via his marketing of the insidious Frock-Be-Gone ray gun.
[14:12] Viv Trafalgar: There are even rumors that the recent disappearance of the Babbage Courthouse and Mole Man Invasion were his work, although, that cannot be confirmed. What evil will this twisted genius next unleash upon the unsuspecting populace?
[14:12] Viv Trafalgar: No one knows...but his credentials for speaking on the subject of Villainy seem apparent.
[14:12] Agnes Periapse frowns, nodding.
[14:12] Viv Trafalgar: Ladies and gentlemen,
[14:12] Doctor Obolensky: Mwaha!
[14:12] Viv Trafalgar: I give you Doc O and The Baron
[14:12] Mavromichali Szondi hands out the dried frog pills
[14:12] Pepys Ponnier: /booos
[14:12] Annechen Lowey applauds.
[14:12] Serafina Puchkina applauds
[14:13] Elina Koskinen claps politely
[14:13] Ambrose Steampunk: You Cad!
[14:13] Buck Mosely claps
[14:13] Redgrrl Llewellyn: claps wildly and grins
[14:13] Dreddpiratebob Streeter applaudes the evil ones
[14:13] Agnes Periapse claps happily!
[14:13] Petunia Schism looks around nervously
[14:13] KlausWulfenbach shakes Doctor's hand
. [14:13] Dreddpiratebob Streeter: now... FIGHT!
[14:13] Finley Twine: YAY!
[14:13] Mosseveno Tenk applauds
[14:13] Agnes Periapse shoots A Lok at Bob.
[14:13] Finley Twine: Oy gots bets on tha old one
[14:13] Agnes Periapse: *look
[14:13] Redgrrl Llewellyn: he's small but he's wiry
[14:13] Greegar Hellershanks: Hyu get heem, Herr Baron!
[14:13] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: Heh.
[14:14] Pepys Ponnier: Bob, give'um teh ole Bronx cheer
[14:14] Mavromichali Szondi: Yah gets him lek hyu did de Gilded Duke!!
[14:14] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: Fraulein Trafalgar, am I to begin?
[14:14] Doctor Obolensky: In the time-honored tradition of saving the best for last, the Baron will be speaking first.
[14:14] Greegar Hellershanks: Ve keep de door koverdt!
[14:14] Viv Trafalgar: Yes please Baron
[14:14] Agnes Periapse chuckles.
[14:14] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: Pearls before swine, Obolensky.
[14:14] Mosseveno Tenk grins
[14:14] Doktor Sweetwater grins.
[14:14] Redgrrl Llewellyn: lol
[14:14] Annechen Lowey: Boys.
[14:14] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: I think better on my feet.
[14:15] Ceejay Writer taps my translator device and worries it it out of steam.
[14:15] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: I am often called a villain in my homeland. However, one must consider who is doing the namecalling.
[14:15] Mason Barnes: Greegor: Are you by any chance a Jagger?
14:15] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: I began pacifying Europa after The Other devastated vast amounts of land and communities, starting from my own ancestral lands in western-central Transylvania and moving outwards.
[14:16] Redgrrl Llewellyn: leans forward and listens raptly
[14:16] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: This was done for two reasons - one, to honour the work and memory of my friends, Bill and Barry Heterodyne.
[14:16] Gaensebluemchen Schmetterling: Greetings there *smiles
[14:16] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: Secondly, to give my toddler son a place where he could not only grow up safely, but survive to adulthood.
[14:17] Treloar Parx: My apologies for my tardiness. The SL gods were very specific on their sacrifice this afternoon
[14:17] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: In the process of doing so, I had to deal with other Sparks, the ones who survived the war, as The Other had killed a majority of the major Sparky Houses.
[14:18] Agnes Periapse starts and waves at Professor Parx
[14:18] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: Ah... before I continue, do I need to define what I mean by 'Spark'?
[14:18] Viv Trafalgar: Please do sir
[14:18] Ambrose Steampunk: I agree
[14:18] Buck Mosely: please do
[14:18] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: Ja, very well. The Spark is a usually-hereditary gift of not intelligence as much as creative application of knowledge.
[14:19] Ceejay Writer silently compares that to a muse.
[14:19] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: The most profound manifestations are usually called 'mad science'; however, many young Sparks do not even survive their gift, as they are afflicted with megalomania at the same time.
[14:19] Doctor Obolensky: In other words, the mad scientists of inuitive genius and ability.
[14:19] Agnes Periapse loks at the Doc.
[14:19] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: Well said.
[14:19] Redgrrl Llewellyn: oh! [frown clears and nods]
[14:20] Ambrose Steampunk: that makes much more sence
[14:20] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: The Heterodyne family has ensured their Spark burns brightly for centuries, and actually seem to warp the nature of reality when they are working.
[14:20] Agnes Periapse: !
[14:21] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: It is, however, not always that strong. You may have Sparky shoemakers in some small Wasteland border village who will never fully express their ability, due to lack of education and opportunity.
[14:21] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: I study the Spark, when time and duties allow.
[14:21] Doctor Obolensky: And of course, they'd be liable to make some quite dangerous shoes.
[14:21] Viv Trafalgar: chuckles
[14:21] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: Possibly - or dangerous-looking alone.
[14:22] Treloar Parx: That would explain the slippers Snow White gave the evil Queen
[14:22] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: Back then, however, a few powerful Sparks managed to survive the war and try to take advantage of the chaos around them.
[14:22] Viv Trafalgar: are the Spark Villains sir?
[14:22] Pepys Ponnier: Spanks?
[14:22] Agnes Periapse nods. "and Rumplestiltskin's"
[14:22] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: Not always, but it takes an unusual mind to keep stable in the... hm, what's the word...
[14:22] Salazar Jack: Have you detected the Spark in New Babbage, or is it endemic to your realm?
[14:23] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: The rush of such power at their fingertips. It can be intoxicating.
[14:23] Redgrrl Llewellyn: better than Rum?
[14:23] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: I am quite sure there are many Sparks here, but curiously, the manifestation in this realm seems to be far more measured than at home.
[14:24] Doctor Obolensky: Read: diluted.
[14:24] Doctor Obolensky: >snorts<
[14:24] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: Nein, not diluted, but far more sane.
[14:24] Agnes Periapse squints through her spectacles at the Doctor.
[14:24] Treloar Parx: Sanity is relative
[14:24] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: Ja, but I still see New Babbage standing.
[14:25] Ambrose Steampunk: parts of it anyway
[14:25] Bela Lubezki: good evening, sorry for being late, i got...stucked
[14:25] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: My job back then, as I saw it, was to bring peace to the land - and naturally, those I opposed spoke harshly of me because I denied them their selfish interests.
[14:25] Ceejay Writer smiles at Bela, knowing many of us got stucked.
[14:25] KlausWulfenbach Outlander grins humourlessly
[14:25] Salazar Jack: Curious... I have heard the ability to fly described in a similar way. Easier to do here than in other worlds.
[14:26] Redgrrl Llewellyn: waves to dear Finley as he got restless
[14:26] Agnes Periapse cocks an ear at Mr Jack's comment.
[14:26] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: Nonetheless, the peace is in place, and they can complain all they like as they ride the trains the empire has financed, without fear of attack.
[14:26] Doctor Obolensky: Except from your forces, of course, Baron.
[14:27] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: Only if they break the peace, Herr Doktor.
[14:28] Greegar Hellershanks snickers
[14:28] Mavromichali Szondi recalls de lonk night spent knitting vhile heffink novun to go und crush
[14:28] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: I work towards a peaceful and united Europa, one which will be able to stand against threats like The Other and defeat them, rather than piecemeal attempts which only lead to ruin.
[14:28] Mavromichali Szondi: nights*
[14:28] Salazar Jack: I have read that your troops followed you through your portal to Caledon and other lands. Will they be coming to New Babbage as well?
[14:28] Gaensebluemchen Schmetterling: Good evening, Matri ;-)
[14:28] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: Otherwise, I leave the local rulers to their own devices. I do not micromanage.
[14:28] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: I believe that is the modern term, ja?
[14:28] Mavromichali Szondi: /me
[14:28] Gaensebluemchen Schmetterling: +LOOKS AT HER ARM
[14:28] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: They have been seen at Piermont Landing when off-duty, at the dances there.
[14:28] Gaensebluemchen Schmetterling: +SMILES
[14:28] Winter Illios smiels at gb
[14:29] Viv Trafalgar: ::coughs and mutters something about a politics free zone::
[14:29] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: As invited guests.
[14:29] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: Otherwise, only at my Consulate office on security duty.
[14:29] Doctor Obolensky: Yes, keep you questions to ones about villainy, or I'll get out the beehive gun.
[14:29] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: They are, within the bounds of military duty, free beings.
[14:29] Viv Trafalgar: Baron, please if you will?
[14:30] Mavromichali Szondi: yah ve leks to come visit und see de pretty steel vorks :)
[14:30] Greegar Hellershanks: ONd de pretty gorls!
[14:30] Ceejay Writer has a lemming gun and knows how to use it. Focuss back on Villanry.
[14:30] Viv Trafalgar: Thank you Baron for your views on the topic of despotism
[14:30] Treloar Parx quite enjoys a twist of lemming in his gin
[14:30] Doktor Sweetwater: Bebbech ist verra luffly.
[14:30] Agnes Periapse looks coolly at Herr Hellershanks.
[14:30] Pepys Ponnier: /starts eating beans
[14:30] Viv Trafalgar: I am sure questions will be asked about the topic
[14:30] Viv Trafalgar: however
[14:30] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: Bitte, Fraulein Trafalgar.
[14:31] Viv Trafalgar: Looks at doc O and wonders what he might be thinking
[14:31] Viv Trafalgar: or doing
[14:31] Magdalena Kamenev: Crashing, perhaps?
[14:31] Doctor Obolensky: >peers at his pocketwatch<
[14:31] Pepys Ponnier: /pulls out his prayer beads and starts whistling
[14:31] Doctor Obolensky: Ah, is it over to me then?
[14:32] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: My time is up, Fraulein?
[14:32] Viv Trafalgar: nods
[14:32] KlausWulfenbach Outlander nods as well
[14:32] Doctor Obolensky: Sorry, I was just nodding off.
[14:32] Ceejay Writer applauds politely.
[14:32] Wiggy Undertone: *chuckles*
[14:32] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: Shame being that old.
[14:32] Treloar Parx: Self absorbtion is another trait of villainy
[14:32] Ambrose Steampunk: hahaha
[14:32] Mavromichali Szondi whispers *I heard dot a leck of villainy causes drowsiness*
[14:32] Ceejay Writer giggles.
[14:32] Agnes Periapse chuckles quietly.
[14:32] Magdalena Kamenev snorts in an unladylike fashion.
[14:32] Doctor Obolensky: Now then, the topic is Villains.
[14:32] Jedburgh30 Dagger: like a sponge?
[14:32] Rengerin Skytower applauds fro Herr Baron!
[14:32] Greegar Hellershanks: Hoo, yah?
[14:33] Serafina Puchkina applauds
[14:33] Redgrrl Llewellyn: claps and smiles
[14:33] Doctor Obolensky: Now then, I realise you are a slightly-above average rabble, so can any of you throw out what you think a Villain is?
[14:33] Magdalena Kamenev: Not concentrating on the next fiendish scheme? Hmmmm ...
[14:33] Agnes Periapse nods at her landlord's opening.
[14:33] Ambrose Steampunk: You?
[14:33] Remington Thursday harumphs
[14:33] Mason Barnes: Putting self for power over everything else?
[14:33] Buck Mosely: A Bad Guy ?
[14:33] Magdalena Kamenev: Neither a peasant nor a lord.
[14:33] Doctor Obolensky: Indeed, I am a Villain.
[14:34] Agnes Periapse thinks.
[14:34] Mason Barnes: I guess you could say a devotion to power.
[14:34] Petunia Schism: something to do with a hat and moustache?
[14:34] Mavromichali Szondi: zumvun who says I em not a villain - iz effryvuns elses fault dot they tink I em!
[14:34] Agnes Periapse starts.
[14:34] Doctor Obolensky: Is a mugger a Villain? I think not.
[14:34] Treloar Parx: "Moustache twirling, monocle wearing, top hatted, cad'?
[14:34] Magdalena Kamenev: A freeman ...
[14:34] Rengerin Skytower: Somevun who iz a proper foil fro a Hero?
[14:34] Ambrose Steampunk: a cad? a bounder?
[14:34] Pepys Ponnier: Villains want to crush teh enemies and hear the lamination of teh wemen
[14:34] Ambrose Steampunk: ok conan
[14:34] Jedburgh30 Dagger: lamination?
[14:34] Doctor Obolensky: Exactly, a Villain, as opposed to your everyday thug, is a person of style.
[14:34] Breezy Carver: ham ??
[14:34] Mavromichali Szondi: similar is de ectual Dictators vot says "I em not a dictator - hyu jest says I em - I em for peace, freedom und stability"
[14:34] Rengerin Skytower: Lemination dun tickle.
[14:34] Magdalena Kamenev: Make the women shiny.
[14:34] Agnes Periapse looks around at the stylish room.
[14:35] Doctor Obolensky: One can't just bash someone over the head, and expect to be a noted villain.
[14:35] Redgrrl Llewellyn: nods and adjusts her monocle]
[14:35] Mason Barnes: A mugger can just be a henchman though, a villan is one who is stands back and fights behind cover, isn't he?
[14:35] Viv Trafalgar: Please let the Doctor speak
[14:35] Viv Trafalgar: questions for both at the end
[14:36] Doctor Obolensky: Now then, I suppose you are all thinking "Why, oh why, is my life plagued with Doctor Obolensky, that horrible villain and stylish man about town?
[14:36] KlausWulfenbach Outlander mutters under his breath
[14:36] Serafina Puchkina chuckles
[14:36] Ambrose Steampunk: i am?
[14:36] Doctor Obolensky: Well, the answer is rather simple. You lead boring, ordinary lives.
[14:36] Treloar Parx: Or someone with the vast funds to spend on building a home inside a volcano, or on top of a mountain
[14:36] Ceejay Writer blinks.
[14:36] Malegatto Alter laughs
[14:36] Agnes Periapse frowns.
[14:37] Remington Thursday grins
[14:37] Doctor Obolensky: And yet, you lack the drive, the vision, and the ability, to crush your neighbors with giant mechanical lobsters.
[14:37] Remington Thursday: Now tis is getting interestin.
[14:37] Mason Barnes laughs
[14:37] Breezy Carver nods
[14:37] Doctor Obolensky: So of course, someone has to do it for you, or you'd all end up with nothing to talk about.
[14:37] Magdalena Kamenev gets out the drawn WD-40 ...
[14:38] Agnes Periapse snickers.
[14:38] Treloar Parx proposes a lobster regatta for New Babbage
[14:39] Redgrrl Llewellyn: shots a warning glance to Prof Parx else he finds his chair overheats
[14:39] Doctor Obolensky: Now then...I'm a genius, and I could have chosen, at some point, to follow the path of the hero.
[14:39] Jedburgh30 Dagger: let the man monologue
[14:39] KlausWulfenbach Outlander clears his throat
[14:39] Ambrose Steampunk: hmmmmm
[14:39] Doctor Obolensky: But, let's face it. Although better than you rabble, heroes have a significant down side.
[14:40] Ambrose Steampunk: and what is that doctor?
[14:40] Agnes Periapse tilts her head curiouly.
[14:40] Doctor Obolensky: Do heroes get to ride about in giant mechanical lobsters, crushing buildings beneath their oversized claws? No!
[14:40] Doctor Obolensky: Behing a villain is simply more fun.
[14:40] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: Heh.
[14:40] Agnes Periapse: hmm
[14:40] Malegatto Alter grins
[14:41] Ambrose Steampunk frowns
[14:41] Roanoke Feuerstein vlinks and looks around for a lobster shaped shadow with all this talk of giant lobsters.
[14:41] Redgrrl Llewellyn: nods and smiles a half secret half smile
[14:41] Pepys Ponnier: /applauds
[14:41] Buck Mosely: what about everyone who gets hurt ?
[14:41] Ceejay Writer suddenly craves seafood.
[14:41] Doctor Obolensky: Plus, the clothes are better. And let me tell you, evil women are far more entertaining than the good ones! At least, I seem to recall that being the case.
[14:41] Bela Lubezki makes mental not to install lobster repellant blimps
[14:41] Redgrrl Llewellyn: and drawn butter
[14:41] KlausWulfenbach Outlander looks uncomfortable
[14:41] Doctor Obolensky: Ah, yes, the poor unfortunate victims.
[14:41] Jedburgh30 Dagger: HEY!
[14:41] Bela Lubezki: *note
[14:42] Pepys Ponnier: Yes! The victims! Tell us more!
[14:42] Jasper Kiergarten: plots out fields of fire for cannon from the roof tops of my stores
[14:42] Doctor Obolensky: It is very important, Mister Mosely, to remember....
[14:42] Doctor Obolensky: As a villain and a hero do battle overhead, someone has to take on the sad duty of making the world how much better they are than everyone else.
[14:43] Magdalena Kamenev blinks.
[14:43] Doctor Obolensky: IN other words, when Shopkeeper Smith gets crushed under the Giant Lobster....he's showing the world how much better the Hero and Villain are.
[14:43] Agnes Periapse huffs, frowning, andd sitting straighter.
[14:43] Doctor Obolensky: After all, *they* aren't incompetent enough to get crushed.
[14:44] Rengerin Skytower: Zo ... hyu're better than uz, zir?
[14:44] Ambrose Steampunk: piffle
[14:44] Viv Trafalgar: raises an eyebrow
[14:44] Doctor Obolensky: So, yes, I salute those wretched idiots who show the world how my creations work.
[14:44] ZenRascal Mandelbrot: ... ummmm ...
[14:44] Breezy Carver looks !
[14:44] Ambrose Steampunk: i would get out of the way
[14:44] Myrtil Igaly: But the Villain always loses against the Hero, so the Hero is better than the Villain!
[14:44] Agnes Periapse: ...
[14:44] Ambrose Steampunk: its simple
[14:44] Pepys Ponnier: /Pepys' piles prolapse
[14:44] Doctor Obolensky: Ah, young Myrtil...
[14:44] Buck Mosely: That doesn't sound right at all
[14:45] Doctor Obolensky: Better is a relative term.
[14:45] Agnes Periapse shakes her head at Miss Igaly's naivety.
[14:45] Myrtil Igaly hides
[14:45] Winter Illios mutters "and sometimes the villains win so the peasants have a reason to be revolting"
[14:45] Doctor Obolensky: You see, as I've told you, Villains are mostly in it for the fun.
[14:45] Magdalena Kamenev: It's always a relative term. That's what makes it useful for comparing things.
[14:46] Redgrrl Llewellyn: and the booty
[14:46] Petunia Schism: the peasants are always revolting
[14:46] ZenRascal Mandelbrot: OK, does the lobster win or lose?
[14:46] Doctor Obolensky: But you must remember, that *same* drive is what makes the Heroes come out to do battle with us?
[14:46] Doctor Obolensky: << no ? >>
[14:46] Ambrose Steampunk whispers to Remington, "Why are villans always so long winded?"
[14:47] Doctor Obolensky: You see, Just as the hero and villain battle, and provide meaning and amusement to your little lives, so do we amuse each other.
[14:47] Buck Mosely: A drive to help people seems alot different than a drive to destroy if you ask me ?
[14:47] Redgrrl Llewellyn: because they are usually erudite [hisses to Mr. Steampunk]
[14:47] Viv Trafalgar: So, Villany as performance art?
[14:47] Annechen Lowey frowns.
[14:47] Rengerin Skytower: Heroez are trying to help pipplez. Villainz are trying to help themselvez. That'z not the same.
[14:47] Doctor Obolensky: I'm sure you have all wondered, at some point, as to why a villain never seems to be truly defeated.
[14:47] Magdalena Kamenev: Lord have mercy, It's Lina Lamont from Singin' in the Rain!
[14:47] Ambrose Steampunk: ohhh
[14:47] Eugenia Burton: Ho! Never fear - Bang is here!
[14:47] Doctor Obolensky: Why we always seem to return, and the hero always returns to battle us.
[14:48] KlausWulfenbach Outlander nosepinches
[14:48] Jedburgh30 Dagger: *dies at LL*
[14:48] Doctor Obolensky: Well, except here....where you don't have a proper hero.
[14:48] Treloar Parx: Franchise?
[14:48] Jedburgh30 Dagger: pishtosh
[14:49] Agnes Periapse mumbles about the mean level of heroism in a populace.
[14:49] Mason Barnes: So, a town is terrorized, or the hero and villan fight au nausiem?
[14:49]Redgrrl Llewellyn: fun, power, and personal riches....looks for the down side of Villiany
[14:49] Doctor Obolensky: Repeatedly, of course? Ad Nauseum? I hope not.
[14:50] Magdalena Kamenev: RICO charges, Miss Llewellyn.
[14:50] Beq Janus: badly fitting capes and poor facial hair Red
[14:50] Viv Trafalgar: snorts
[14:50] Doctor Obolensky: After all, it is the responsibility of the Villain to come up with new and more interesting ways to cause havoc.
[14:50] Redgrrl Llewellyn: grins and nods to dear Mags with a wave]
((LOL)) [14:50] Mason Barnes snorts at Magdalena's comment
[14:50] Eugenia Burton: I just do it with torture.
[14:51] Doctor Obolensky: Now then...I heard some rumblings that you lot have no true hero, just a bunch of part-timers.
[14:51] Doctor Obolensky: That is bushwah!
[14:51] Roanoke Feuerstein fans herself slowly
[14:51] Viv Trafalgar: hero consultants they call themselves
[14:51] Ceejay Writer wonders how to spell bushwah.
[14:51] Doctor Obolensky: Part time heroes are something akin to part time villains.
[14:51] Magdalena Kamenev: P-O-P-P-Y-C-O-C-K ...
[14:51] Doctor Obolensky: And a part-time villain hardly rates the name. >snorts<
[14:51] Ambrose Steampunk listens closely
[14:52] Doctor Obolensky: After all, a key point of being a hero or a villain, is the confidence....the out and out ego, if you will...
[14:52] Doctor Obolensky: to stand up and say "Yes, I am an Evil Villain!", or, whatever it is that heroes say
[14:53] KlausWulfenbach Outlander nods
[14:53] Doctor Obolensky: One does just say "Oh, I think today I'll be a bit heroic."
[14:53] Remington Thursday: Are you recruiting, Dr?
[14:53] Ambrose Steampunk: "I am a Hero, Here to serve and protect"
[14:54] Redgrrl Llewellyn: grins and murmuers] when is he not recruiting?
[14:54] Ambrose Steampunk: thats what i think one would say
[14:54] Magdalena Kamenev coughs.
[14:54] Jedburgh30 Dagger: ::rolls eyes::
[14:54] Doctor Obolensky: Recruiting? Not for my own side, of course.
[14:54] Buck Mosely nods to Ambrose
[14:54] Viv Trafalgar: ahaha
[14:54] Magdalena Kamenev: Are there toasters involved in the recruiting?
[14:54] Doctor Obolensky: Frankly, if any of you were worthy minion material, you would have already turned up at my door.
[14:54] Treloar Parx: Check with the minion's union
[14:54] Ambrose Steampunk: of course i wouldent know for shure...
[14:54] Ambrose Steampunk coughs
[14:55] TotalLunar Eclipse is still looking for a toad minion
[14:55] Annechen Lowey: Worthy minins have more sense.
[14:55] Beq Janus: Thoguh the Doctor can only accept men of course, as women, wll we are only good for tying to railways
[14:55] KlausWulfenbach Outlander snorts
[14:55] Doctor Obolensky: Now then....ask your questions, but try to keep the really idiotic ones to a minimum.
[14:55] Viv Trafalgar: one moment please
[14:55] Viv Trafalgar: before the questions begin
[14:55] Agnes Periapse shifts uncomortably.
[14:55] Ceejay Writer starts to talk, considers that, hushes up.
[14:55] Viv Trafalgar: Thank you very much Doctor O
[14:55] Magdalena Kamenev raises her hand.
[14:55] Viv Trafalgar: Thank you very much Baron!
[14:56] Wiggy Undertone: *claps politely*
[14:56] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: Bitte.
[14:56] Mason Barnes: /applauds
[14:56] Redgrrl Llewellyn: claps and grins] good job Gelving...and Herr Baron
[14:56] Serafina Puchkina: Thank you both, gentlemen
[14:56] Rhianon Jameson applauds both men.
[14:56] Magdalena Kamenev: .-'`'-. APPLAUSE APPLAUSE .-'`'-.
[14:56] Viv Trafalgar: Both of you have taken time out of your busy schedules and we are thoroughly grateful
[14:56] Rengerin Skytower: Hoooo!
[14:56] Ambrose Steampunk: Cad! Bounder!
[14:56] KlausWulfenbach Outlander bows from his seat
[14:56] Doctor Obolensky: Indeed!
[14:56] Viv Trafalgar: and hope that you have not been treated too badly yet
[14:56] Doctor Obolensky: I am both!
[14:56] Ambrose Steampunk: oanother insult i cant think of!
[14:56] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: Heh.
[14:56] Remington Thursday applauds
[14:56] Agnes Periapse claps happily!
[14:56] Viv Trafalgar: Turns to the audience and clears throat
[14:56] Viv Trafalgar: ladies and gentlemen, we do have open questions coming up
[14:57] Magdalena Kamenev: Rogue, Mr. Steampunk.
[14:57] Ambrose Steampunk: Yes
[14:57] Viv Trafalgar: please keep these questions to the topic of Villainy.
[14:57] Ambrose Steampunk: You rouge!
[14:57] Breezy Carver grins !
[14:57] Viv Trafalgar: No other questions will be answered by our speakers
[14:57] Bela Lubezki: i have a question
[14:57] Doctor Obolensky: Indeed, I keep the make-up to a minimum.
[14:57] Agnes Periapse snickers.
[14:57] Viv Trafalgar: We thank you so much. Craft boxes will be set out after the last question. Not to be missed
[14:57] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: I want to point out that this is the very attitude I've had to spend 20-odd years dealing with at home.
[14:58] Pepys Ponnier: Well, what is the point of it then? Making the pesants run everywhere and the lamination of teh weemens. Why dat?
[14:58] Treloar Parx: She did spell it right Doctor
[14:58] Jedburgh30 Dagger: Bela has a question
[14:58] Viv Trafalgar: Bela, you first, then Miss Kamenev
[14:58] Bela Lubezki: why do villains usually talk endless monologues and revealing their secret plans to the tied hero before crushing him (and failing there so the hero can escape)?
[14:58] Magdalena Kamenev: Danke.
[14:58] Doctor Obolensky: Who exactly are you asking, Sir?
[14:58] Doctor Obolensky: Ah, allow me.
[14:58] Eugenia Burton raises her hand for a question.
[14:59] Viv Trafalgar: nods to Eugenia
[14:59] Doctor Obolensky: Well, first of all, you may have noticed, that oftentimes, the Villain is smarter than the Hero.
[14:59] Bela Lubezki: ok...
[14:59] Winter Illios: because they think that the hero is the only one smart enough to understand them...
[14:59] Redgrrl Llewellyn: and better educated [grins]
[14:59] Rengerin Skytower snorts derisively.
[14:59] Ambrose Steampunk: Poppycock
[14:59] Pepys Ponnier: Oh.
[14:59] Doctor Obolensky: Long ago, when the tenets of the Unwritten Rules were being devised, they added that bit, to give the Hero a chance.
[14:59] Annechen Lowey mutters, "More verbose at any rate."
[14:59] Bela Lubezki: ah...
[15:00] Ambrose Steampunk: Doctor, didnt you write down the Unwritten Rules?
[15:00] Redgrrl Llewellyn: Erudition vs. Verbosity...fine line
[15:00] Jedburgh30 Dagger: raises hand
[15:00] Breezy Carver: he has them memorized !
[15:00] Treloar Parx raises hand for a question
[15:00] Serafina Puchkina: Miss K, you were next, I believe
[15:00] Mason Barnes: /raises hand
[15:00] Ambrose Steampunk: But i saw them in writeing
[15:00] Mason Barnes: /raises his hand*^
[15:00] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: He can get fined by the union for that.
[15:00] Magdalena Kamenev: Yes.
[15:00] Pepys Ponnier: /raises his glass
[15:01] Magdalena Kamenev: Dr. O said, "[14:40] Doctor Obolensky: Behing a villain is simply more fun."
[15:01] Breezy Carver: Twice !
[15:01] Magdalena Kamenev: Why aren't more women villains? Girls Just Wanna Have Fun. I Enjoy Being a Girl.
[15:01] Ambrose Steampunk raises hand.
[15:02] KlausWulfenbach Outlander looks at Doctor Alter
[15:02] Wiggy Undertone raises his hand as well.
[15:02] Mason Barnes: Two song titles. Wow.
[15:02] Redgrrl Llewellyn: grins over to Dr. Alter and winks
[15:02] Magdalena Kamenev: Culture is rife with examples of evil women and fun women.
[15:02] Malegatto Alter grins
[15:02] Pepys Ponnier: What are you talking about? My gf is a villain!
[15:02] Serafina Puchkina: (It's Dagger, Parx, Barnes, Steampunk, and then Undertone)
[15:02] Doctor Obolensky: Hmmm...well, I think you'd be surprised....there are many evil women, of course.
[15:02] Magdalena Kamenev: I didn't say there weren't any. Just not enough.
[15:02] Doctor Obolensky: But, women seem to be less likely to actually embrace Villainy.
[15:02] Magdalena Kamenev: Do either of you have a mentoring program or women villains?
[15:03] Treloar Parx points to the large volume of divorce lawyers
[15:03] Doctor Obolensky: They'll be evil, of course, as any man can tell you.
[15:03] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: Oh ja.
[15:03] Pepys Ponnier: /nods
[15:03] Serafina Puchkina: Miss Dagger, your question please?
[15:03] Viv Trafalgar: one moment
[15:03] Viv Trafalgar: Miss Eugenia was before miss dagger. my apolobies
[15:03] Doctor Obolensky: But they're usually too socially conscious to actually stand on the roof of a building in a storm and laugh maniacally.
[15:03] Viv Trafalgar: apologies
[15:03] Serafina Puchkina: Oh sorry!
[15:03] Jedburgh30 Dagger: I'll pass
[15:04] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: The Other did just fine, Obolensky.
[15:04] KlausWulfenbach Outlander shakes his head
[15:04] Marion Questi raises his hand.
[15:04] Doctor Obolensky: That's why I said "Usually", Baron. Do try to keep up.
[15:04] Pepys Ponnier: /hands Ms. Vivian some apolologies
[15:04] Wiggy Undertone: *snorts*
[15:04] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: She makes up for the rest.
[15:04] Serafina Puchkina: Miss Burton did you want to ask your question?
[15:04] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: Ah, I think we lost her.
[15:04] Greegar Hellershanks: Sche kreschdt
[15:05] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: Perhaps when she returns, ja?
[15:05] Serafina Puchkina: Then if Miss Dagger passes. ..
[15:05] Viv Trafalgar: Miss Dagger then
[15:05] Jedburgh30 Dagger: Parx next
[15:05] Serafina Puchkina: Yes, Mr. Parx?
[15:05] Treloar Parx: My question is one of supply gentlemen
[15:06] Treloar Parx: Since villains normally live in remote areas, mostly to get around building codes and the like, how hard do you find it keeping up with things like food and aethernet access? The basic essentials?
[15:06] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: If I may?
[15:07] Ambrose Steampunk raises his had higher
[15:07] Doctor Obolensky: Indeed.
15:08] Serafina Puchkina: (it's Barnes, Steampunk, and Questi)
[15:08] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: Many of those I have had to deal with were nobles, and had peasantry to exploit for those materials - other than the aethernet access, of course. The roads and such are another matter - many were damaged during the wars, but shank's mare is still a reliable transport for troops.
[15:08] Wiggy Undertone: And Undertone?
[15:08] Serafina Puchkina: (and Undertone. Sorry!)
[15:09] Doctor Obolensky: Myself, I rely on owning several shipping companies both of the sea and air variety.
[15:09] Treloar Parx: Private contractors?
[15:09] Haelga Gustafson: Ho, det vas bed landink.
[15:09] Doctor Obolensky: Well, the *think* they are. >chuckles<
[15:09] Wiggy Undertone: *cough*Fronts for piracy*cough*
[15:10] Serafina Puchkina: Mr. Barnes, your question?
[15:10] Serafina Puchkina: Mr. Barnes, your question?
[15:10] TotalLunar Eclipse: they may eat their minions
[15:10] Viv Trafalgar: I'm going to pull the tip jar - SL has eated it.
[15:10] Greegar Hellershanks snickers
[15:10] Mason Barnes: THis is for the Baron. I apolloguize if it'sw not quite completly on topic, please ignore if it's not enough.
[15:10] KlausWulfenbach Outlander listens
[15:10] Treloar Parx: It was probably the jaegers
[15:10] Viv Trafalgar: each of the speakers will split the tips -- if you would like to contribute later, please IM me
[15:10] Mason Barnes: you mentioned before sparks and dealing with them, both as a evil mastermind and a ruler, what is your opinon of them. Are they worth allowing, or are they do dangerous and should be stomped out?
[15:11] Haelga Gustafson: Det hyz Baron, not Othar.
[15:11] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: Good question. Those who retain the sanity to be able to comply with the peace... some I employ, some I leave to rule over their own lands.
[15:12] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: Those which are out of control, are actively dangerous - that's when I must call in the troops.
[15:12] Myrtil Igaly raises her hand
[15:12] Mason Barnes: So it depends. I see.
[15:12] Salazar Jack raises hand
[15:12] Mason Barnes: fair enough.
[15:12] Serafina Puchkina: And Mr, Steampunk, your question?
[15:12] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: I study the Spark so I can, hopefully, eliminate the dangerous part and allow them to be contributors, not destroyers.
[15:12] Ambrose Steampunk: THis is for Dr. O. IF, as you say, Being a villain is so much more fun, How do you feel aboutbeing chaced by mobs of angry citezens with the torches and pitchforks? Is that fun?ks
[15:12] Haelga Gustafson nods to de Doktor and salutes Greegar.
[15:13] Doctor Obolensky: Well, it's better than no response at all.
[15:13] Agnes Periapse: hmm
[15:13] KlausWulfenbach Outlander snickers
[15:13] Doktor Sweetwater grins.
[15:13] Ambrose Steampunk: i see...
[15:13] Magdalena Kamenev: That does sound like fun!
[15:13] Doctor Obolensky: But, with an angry mob, you miss out on all the good soliloquys and the opportunities for duels and the like.
[15:13] TotalLunar Eclipse: More food.
[15:14] Bela Lubezki: ah, the concept of negative attention, i see
[15:14] Serafina Puchkina nods: Mr. Questi, your question, sir?
[15:14] Doctor Obolensky: Invariably, you're left with the lesser fun of releasing the rabid weasels on them.
[15:14] Marion Questi: Thank you,,
[15:14] Treloar Parx: Some people run in front of bulls in Spain others in front of angry mobs
[15:14] Marion Questi: We have two very different approaches here: one revels in his villainy and the other would like us to believe he is acting for the greater good. Which should we fear more?
[15:14] Bookworm Hienrichs: Or Ur-Gerbils, I'm sure.
[15:14] Viv Trafalgar: chuckles
[15:14] KlausWulfenbach Outlander chuckles darkly
[15:14] Greegar Hellershanks: ho-oh
[15:15] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: Depends on what you have to hide, Herr Questi.
[15:15] Wiggy Undertone looks expectantly toward Serafina.
[15:15] Agnes Periapse: Trust no-one!
[15:15] Marion Questi quickly pats the pistol under his coat...
[15:15] Doctor Obolensky: Keep your Death Ray handy.
[15:15] Serafina Puchkina: Thank you for waiting. Mr. Undertone?
[15:15] Wiggy Undertone: Not so much a question, as a statement to Dr. Obolensky.
[15:15] Magdalena Kamenev: The Truth Is Out There.
[15:15] Wiggy Undertone: I must disagree with you as to your justification of the death of innocent victims.
[15:16] Wiggy Undertone: All people deserve some measure of dignity and respect! You show neither.
[15:16] Wiggy Undertone: Perhaps the true difference between hero and villian is more one of moral fiber
, [15:16] Wiggy Undertone: or in your case, the lack thereof!!
[15:16] Doctor Obolensky: Oh, I have some respect for them....it's just not very much.
[15:16] Viv Trafalgar: Grins and senses a hero in the room.
[15:16] Buck Mosely rasies his hand
[15:16] Jasper Kiergarten: well, he is- evil
[15:16] Magdalena Kamenev: Woo hoo!
[15:16] Wiggy Undertone: *folds his arms*
[15:16] Jasper Kiergarten: afterall
[15:16] Malegatto Alter laughs hard
[15:16] Serafina Puchkina: Miss Igaly, your question?
[15:16] Agnes Periapse giggles.
[15:17] Treloar Parx hands Mr. Undertone some bran flakes
[15:17] Myrtil Igaly: This is for the Baron : following Mr Barnes question, would you consider the Doctor Obolensky as being an unsanely mad Spark and then would you launch your troops on him?
[15:17] Doctor Obolensky: After all, if they were worthwhile, wouldn't they have the good sense to not be *under* the Giant Lobster?
[15:17] The Miniscule Wirefly Steam Powered Chocolate Confection Device whispers: Right-click and choose 'Pay...' to purchase this item.
[15:17] Bela Lubezki hands mister undertone a cape...
[15:17] Magdalena Kamenev: No capes!
[15:17] Remington Thursday: That IS a good point...
[15:17] Bela Lubezki: giggles
[15:17] Agnes Periapse: Still, he's mostly harmless so far, surely?
[15:18] Doctor Obolensky: >snorts<
[15:18] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: Fraulein Igaly, he does seem to have some glimmer of a Spark, but as he is not on my lands, it is not my place to keep the peace unless he attacks me directly.
[15:18] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: Oh, mostly harmless? Ja, from what I've seen of his works.
[15:18] Treloar Parx: "Mostly harmless" *grins*
[15:18] Haelga Gustafson: Ho, ho, ho. Und der is Jaegers here to keepz det from heppenink.
[15:18] Serafina Puchkina: Thank you! Mr. Jack, your question is next.
[15:18] Myrtil Igaly plans an evil attack on the Baron with a note signed by the Doctor
[15:18] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: Shh, Fraulein Haelga.
[15:18] Salazar Jack: Thank you.
[15:18] Salazar Jack: This is to both the Doctor and Baron... do you both see yourselves as villains and if so, are you perfect villians or is there some aspect of villainy that you see yourself needing to improve?
[15:18] Doctor Obolensky: Well, I guess we know whose shop gets blown up tomorrow. >tisks<
[15:19] Magdalena Kamenev grins at Haelga.
[15:19] Salazar Jack narrows eyes
[15:19] Pepys Ponnier: lol
[15:19] Haelga Gustafson toothily grins and hushes.
[15:19] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: I'm not a villain at all, Herr Jack. I am someone doing what noone else was either willing or capable of doing, at home.
[15:19] Doctor Obolensky: I, on the other hand, am the perfect villain.
[15:19] Magdalena Kamenev continues taking notes for the Duke of Caer Firnas ...
[15:19] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: It's pragmatism, not villainy. Some are inconvenienced -- and others see the larger picture.
[15:20] Bookworm Hienrichs raises a hand.
[15:20] Serafina Puchkina: And I believe Mr. Mosely's question is next
[15:20] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: For an interesting value of 'perfect', ja.
[15:20] KlausWulfenbach Outlander grins
[15:20] Magdalena Kamenev writes down: "mass graves ... slight inconvenience ..."
[15:20] Buck Mosely: right then...
[15:20] Serafina Puchkina: then Miss Book
[15:20] Doctor Obolensky: Need I show you my Doctorate in Dentistry, Baron?
[15:20] Treloar Parx: The Doctor doesn't have a hare brained son to clean up after
[15:21] KlausWulfenbach Outlander raises an eyebrow
[15:21] Greegar Hellershanks frowns at the mention of dentistry
[15:21] Doktor Sweetwater grins.
[15:21] Remington Thursday raises a hand
[15:21] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: Only if I may read it in the folds of your cerebrum, Doctor.
[15:21] Buck Mosely: Mr. Undertone brings u pa good point how would you like it if you were the one under the giant lobster Dr. O ?
[15:21] Haelga Gustafson: Ho ho!
[15:22] Magdalena Kamenev writes down, "Dr. O - Laurence Olivier from "Marathon Man" ..."
[15:22] Doctor Obolensky: Well, are we talking my *own* Giant Lobster, or someone else's?
[15:22] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: That's how many Sparks find themselves doomed, after all.
[15:22] Ceejay Writer again craves seafood.
[15:22] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: Destroyed by their own hubris - and their own creations turning on them.
[15:22] Buck Mosely: that's besudes the point what if you were the one being terrorized ?
[15:22] Bela Lubezki: makes note to order clove oil
[15:23] Buck Mosely: or killed for that matter
[15:23] Treloar Parx raises hand to enquire about product placement
[15:23] Doctor Obolensky: I can assure, you Mister Mosely, that I am unlikely to get killed by any falling crustaceans.
[15:23] Serafina Puchkina: Miss Book, it's your turn to ask a question.
[15:23] Agnes Periapse gigglefits oocly.
[15:23] Doctor Obolensky: There is the difference between myself and the rabble.
[15:23] Malegatto Alter: I only go under my tock lobster to do the occasional repair...
[15:24] Doctor Obolensky: And, if I may....
[15:24] Haelga Gustafson stalks over to stand by Sesshoumaru.
[15:24] Doctor Obolensky: for any of you aspiring to be Villains out there...
[15:24] KlausWulfenbach Outlander chuckles at the Fraulein Doktor's comment
[15:24] Doctor Obolensky: If you wish to be an old villain at some point, always have an answer to your own creations.
[15:24] Agnes Periapse nods.
15:25] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: Well... you do have some good sense.
[15:25] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: Good to see, in a way.
[15:25] Bookworm Hienrichs: Would either of you like to say anything--or hint anything--about your future plans?
[15:25] Viv Trafalgar: ohhh good question Book
[15:25] Viv Trafalgar: with regards to villains
[15:25] KlausWulfenbach Outlander grins at Fraulein Trafalgar
[15:25] Jedburgh30 Dagger: ?
[15:26] Doctor Obolensky: Hmmm....
[15:26] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: I can speak diplomatically; at home, it is 'station-keeping'. Here, however, the Consulate opened a mission with the Czech Republic, and will open a joint office with New Toulouse and the Province of Edison soon.
[15:27] Viv Trafalgar: notes that Doc O is less than forthcoming
[15:27] Doctor Obolensky: Meanwhile, I am simply working on my properties, the Doom Clock and the Observatory.
[15:27] Agnes Periapse: for a change
[15:27] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: I rarely deal with true villainy here.
[15:27] Viv Trafalgar: and is glad for the Baron's forthcomingness
[15:27] Serafina Puchkina: And Thursday Next, I believe ((sorry, Rem. I love Jasper Fforde))
[15:27] Doctor Obolensky: I have *nothing* else planned.
[15:27] Viv Trafalgar: ::coughs::
[15:27] Remington Thursday: ((lol np))
[15:27] Remington Thursday: An interesting thought... It seems that you both agree on the idea that there is a necessary culling, if you will, of humanity. Though both to different ends. tell me, how do you choose your victims?
[15:27] Haelga Gustafson: Hy like dose Czechs, but hy look bedder in de zolid colorz.
[15:28] Viv Trafalgar: groans
[15:28] Doctor Obolensky: I prefer to think of it more of a "Survival of the Fittest".
[15:28] Agnes Periapse rolls her eyes at the Jäger's pun.
[15:28] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: Culling? Hardly. Those who were infected by slaver wasps from the Other War had to be eliminated for the safety of all - there is no cure.
[15:29] Doctor Obolensky: I am not culling them, it's just that the less-capable ones tend to get squished.
[15:29] Remington Thursday: Still, how do you choose which get squished?
[15:29] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: Otherwise... the dead are very inefficient workers. One never knows where a new Spark might arise who will benefit all of humanity.
[15:29] Doctor Obolensky: Well, I don't really choose, do I?
[15:29] Gaensebluemchen Schmetterling: *chuckles
[15:29] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: Nein, you create random chaos.
[15:29] Viv Trafalgar: nods
[15:29] Doctor Obolensky: They just tend to be between me, and where I want to go.
[15:30] Agnes Periapse: It sounds like basic Natural Selection to me.
[15:30] Agnes Periapse ponders
[15:30] Viv Trafalgar: Ladies and gentlemen
[15:30] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: You may all note that villains also leave a mess behind for others to clean up.
[15:30] Doctor Obolensky: Exactly! Sooner or later, you'll learn not to build between my workshop and town hall.
[15:30] Magdalena Kamenev: I'm not sure there's anything natural about death at the claws of a giant mechanical lobster.
[15:30] Viv Trafalgar: chuckles
[15:30] Magdalena Kamenev: But to each their own.
[15:31] Viv Trafalgar: What a splendid note to end on
[15:31] Haelga Gustafson: Dot createz jobz, Herr Baron. Iz a goot ting, ja?
[15:31] Agnes Periapse: I refer to the *unplanned* nature of it, Miss.
[15:31] Treloar Parx: One final question?
[15:31] Viv Trafalgar: thank you all for the marvelous ...
[15:31] KlausWulfenbach Outlander grins at Fraulein Haelga
[15:31] Viv Trafalgar: Yes Professor Parx one last question
[15:32] Treloar Parx: Doctor O, what commission are you receiving on future sales of Dr. Alter's lobsters?
[15:32] Viv Trafalgar: hah
[15:32] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: Heh.
[15:32] Ceejay Writer chokes on champagne.
[15:32] Greegar Hellershanks snickers
[15:32] Doctor Obolensky: Ten percent, and a bulk discount for orders over a dozen.
[15:32] Malegatto Alter laughs
[15:32] Serafina Puchkina laughs
[15:32] Viv Trafalgar: applauds
[15:32] Viv Trafalgar: and laughs
[15:33] Magdalena Kamenev gasps. "Product placement? In this non-commercial space?"
[15:33] Remington Thursday applauds
[15:33] Agnes Periapse giggles.
[15:33] Serafina Puchkina: Well said!
[15:33] Ceejay Writer grins and determines she's definitely going for seafood after.
[15:33] Doctor Obolensky: Actually, I wasn't even aware she made giant lobsters.
[15:33] Magdalena Kamenev: Dr. O, you're as evil as Ken Lay!
[15:33] Treloar Parx: Oh I'm sure *chuckles*
[15:33] KlausWulfenbach Outlander: Port Harbor.

[15:34] Viv Trafalgar: please do pick up the craft bag
[15:34] Jedburgh30 Dagger: shakes head
[15:34] Haelga Gustafson moves protectively closer to her boss.
