AG: It was ok. AG: I admit it was a little 8etter than I expected. EB: yessssssss, i knew it! AG: 8ut who cares! Let's not get sidetracked 8y films a8out wounded, muscular renegades. AG: 8y the way, John, have you ever considered growing your hair out? AG: I 8et it would look fa8ulous. EB: no, it would look so stupid! AG: I don't know a8out that! AG: I have an eye for fashion. 8 of them, in fact! EB: i thought you didn't want to get sidetracked!!! AG: Oh yeah. Whoops. ::::\ EB: anyway, putting me to sleep and landing me in hot water is one thing... EB: but you sort of indirectly caused a MUCH BIGGER problem! EB: before i fell asleep, i was about to prototype something really ridiculous to make jack weaker. EB: i am pretty sure that it would have made jack lose both eyes, both arms, and give him silly blue hair, and possibly also make him be a girl? EB: he probably would have been pretty easy to beat!!! EB: but instead, it was prototyped by jade's first guardian dog lusus. EB: and now he is unstoppable! EB: and he becomes the one who is stirrin' up all that trouble in your session too! EB: i mean, it sounds like your intentions were good, but you probably didn't realize to what extent you were messing everything up! AG: Don't 8e a8surd, John. AG: Of course I realized that would happen. AG: It was pretty much the whole point, you goof! EB: what???????? EB: vriska, why would you do that! AG: Jegus, calm down. EB: but! EB: no! EB: why should i calm down when you just said you deliberately sabotaged all of us? AG: Relaaaaaaaax. AG: Listen, John. AG: Regardless of what I did, he is already here. AG: I know this consequence will 8e hard for you to accept, 8ut whenever you feel angry or confused a8out it, just repeat this to yourself. AG: It should 8ecome your mantra! AG: He is already here. AG: Say it, John! EB: but what does that mean! AG: It means what it sounds like! He's already here!!!!!!!! AG: Here in our session, trying to hunt us down! Man, this should 8e elementary to you 8y now. AG: No matter what you or I or any of us did, Jack's here now. That's the reality! AG: And if I didn't stop you, it wouldn't have changed the reality for us here. We'd still 8e hiding on this rock, and he'd still 8e out there, sniffing around for us. AG: He wouldn't just disappear! That's not how this time stuff works. AG: All that REALLY would have happened is I would have allowed you to do something you weren't supposed to do! AG: You would have prototyped with your pretty 8lue doll, 8ecause of course deep down you know you are o8sessed with me. AG: And then you and all your friends would exist in a splintered timeline. And you wouldn't even 8e a8le to talk to me anymore! ::::( AG: And then you'd 8e doooooooomed. AG: I mean, more doomed than you are already. :::;) AG: Trust me, I am really smart. I have this all figured out. EB: i don't know if that makes sense! EB: i mean, it kind of does... EB: but something doesn't really add up about it. EB: if you knew he was going to be created regardless of what anyone did... EB: why did you decide to involve yourself that way? EB: like the way you are involving yourself with me becoming a hero or whatever? AG: You just answered your own question! AG: I did it 8ecause I wanted to 8e the one responsi8le for cre8ting him. EB: augh! EB: BUT WHYYYYYYYY! AG: 8ecause, John. AG: It only makes sense that I would be the one to cre8te him. AG: Since I am also going to 8e the one to kill him.
