Just Give In

Really, it's easier if you just give in.

And really, why wouldn't you?

Don't you want to see what will happen?

Think about it. We might be able to shape a monster! An unkillable, unstoppable creature made in our own images! Or at least, released by us!

I know you like to think of this as good versus evil, as helping the innocent, but here's a little secret: everyone's fucked anyway. I know you've read about all these Fear/Elemental things. Would one more really hurt humanity's chances any more than they've already been hurt?

We would have our names on it, so to speak. This could be our signature on the epitaph of humanity. We would be immortalized in our own doom.

A doom which, I must re-iterate, we were going towards anyway.

Your truly,

the Ace of Wands

So I Hate You

I just thought you should know.

On a deep, personal level.

I hate all of you.

Well. Maybe not Alice.

She's more guilty by association.

But yeah. I hate you.

They don't even try to save anyone. They don't want to. Haven't even thought of advising people in the same situation.

They just look out for themselves.

If you help out King, I won't kill you all.

That's all.

Please die.

Um, Hey

Knight tells me I should post here.

I'm not sure what to say, though.

He's telling me to just post what comes to my mind.


I don't like sleeping?

I guess I should start there. I have a lot of nightmares on account of, um, circumstances.

My friends are pretty cool about it, though.

I'm not going to try to get you to tell me anything, Penny.

But I want you to know something. I know what you went through. I'm going through it. They want that information to help me. Especially Ten.

I don't know if I want to be helped. Ten says it's for my own good, and I think she and Knight are the only ones in it for my own good. I kind of think that Ace just wants to know what will happen.

But I don't know. It doesn't seem like a good idea. But it's our only idea.

You know what I'm talking about, right?

Knight says I should sign it and maybe use a different font. I'll think about what I want to do, um, stylistically I guess, a bit later.

You gave form to the Grinning King.

He was trapped and you brought him forth and restored him to his former glory.   Perhaps even moreso.

We need that information.

We need to know how.  It is imperative that we know how.

You do not need to know why.

Why does not concern you.

We will not stop until we get it.

We will.  Never.  Stop.

We missed the Queen of Swords on purpose.

We will not miss again.

We can see the signs of the Grinning King.  We will wait where his prey is.

Or perhaps we will plant false signs.  As we did before.

You have no choice but to help them.

You have no choice but to tell us.

The others are not as patient as I.

Ten hates you.  She hates you so much.  She will use pain.

I will simply ask.

Give us the information.  Tell us how you freed the Grinning King.

Or else.
