JOHN: what!!! JOHN: that is an absolutely preposterous amount of time. JADE: i know! JOHN: are you sure you can't make it go any faster? JOHN: i mean, not to sound too demanding, but... JOHN: didn't you say you can teleport stuff? JOHN: why not teleport us there? JADE: i cant! JADE: not here, at least JOHN: oh. well that sucks. JOHN: why not? JADE: the way i understand it is... JADE: becs powers draw from the green sun JADE: and the green sun presides over our universe JADE: many universes actually! and the sessions that created them, as well as the sessions created within them JADE: including the trolls universe and their session JADE: think of it like a giant solar system, but instead of planets revolving around the sun, there are many universes JOHN: uh, ok. JOHN: that sounds... JOHN: big. JADE: it is! JADE: so, bec was able to teleport anywhere in the universe he wanted in an instant, much faster than light JADE: jack was able to do this too, within our session, and then when i inherited those powers from jadesprite, so could i JADE: but we could only teleport locally JADE: which means, bec could jump to anywhere in our universe, but not to another universe, or into a session JADE: and jack could jump to anywhere in our session, but not outside it JADE: we cant even jump to the green sun itself, even though we sort of serve as a gateway to it, and all its energy JADE: and once we leave the suns domain, our travel is limited by the speed of light, like everyone else! JADE: for example, the furthest ring is not in the suns domain JADE: it is more like the suns medium, allowing it to exist JADE: so if i wanted to fly out of our session and travel to the green sun, i would have to make my way there through the furthest ring at the speed of light or less JADE: and wherever we are now is not in the suns domain either JADE: so the same rules apply JOHN: i see. JOHN: it didn't really occur to me this was all so elaborate. JOHN: like, if the green sun is at the center of a bunch of universes, like a huge solar system... JOHN: doesn't that mean it was sort of important? JOHN: maybe trying to blow it up wasn't such a great idea. JADE: yes i think youre right JADE: but to be fair, we were all the victims of a big prank! JOHN: oh man, a prank?? JOHN: who pranked us? JADE: some really creepy omniscient guy JADE: it doesnt matter much, hes supposedly dead now JOHN: oh. well that was quite a ruse then. that son of a bitch! JADE: yes, but its not all as bad as it seems JADE: theres a silver lining in all of this JADE: like you said, a sun presiding over many universes has to be pretty cosmically important JADE: who knows what terrible consequences there would be if it was destroyed JADE: or maybe worse, if it never existed at all JADE: which is what made rose and daves true mission an unintended success! JOHN: their true mission? JOHN: what was that? JADE: to deliver the bomb to the empty location the green sun was meant to exist for most of eternity JADE: and then create the sun in the first place JADE: that is what the tumor was for all along JOHN: ... JADE: like i said JADE: we got played like a bunch of suckers!!!
