UU: i think their romantic practices are particUlarly esoteric. UU: actUally, i have written hUndreds of pages examining the striking differences between hUman and troll romance, as well as reprodUctive habits, as the comparison makes for a marveloUs case stUdy in xenobiocUltUral differences. UU: as long as i am sharing specUlation with yoU, perhaps yoU woUld like to read my essays? UU: i coUld even paste each page right here in sUccession, and allow yoU to read them back to back to back to back to back to back! ^u^ TT: Oh hell no. UU: ah. UU: yes, yoU're right of coUrse. i'm probably getting carried away as UsUal. UU: forgive my enthUsiasm, it's jUst that i so rarely have anyone to talk to who shares my passion for these matters. UU: certainly not my cUrmUdgeonly coplayer. >:U TT: I mean, not that all that stuff wouldn't be fascinating to pore through, on some level. TT: But we kind of have things to do here. TT: Remember you were gonna take a nap? UU: by jove, the nap!!! UU: yes, i really mUst secUre a bit of shUteye. TT: By jove? TT: Oh my lord. UU: yoUr lord? UU: what... UU: do yoU mean by that exactly? :u TT: Nothin'. TT: Hang on, though. Before you go, TT: You never did give me any actual advice on my situation. TT: With the dead agent, and my blown cover. UU: oh, right! UU: i woUld look at it this way. UU: yoU are moments away from beginning yoUr session, yes? TT: Sure. UU: and yoU have already spent a long time gathering intelligence Unbeknownst to the aUthorities. UU: how mUch more do yoU expect to accUmUlate even if yoU coUld stay Undetected? UU: and how mUch strategic advantage is left to gain by delaying yoUr discovery for mUch longer? TT: I don't know. UU: i say the time to make a stand is now! UU: to hell with the dersite tossers. UU: make yoUr presence known. let them see that the prince is awake, and make it abUndantly clear what that means. UU: perhaps it is their tUrn to be nervoUs? to cower in the shadows and live in Uncertainty? TT: Hmm. UU: that is my advice. do with it as yoU will. UU: now i'm off to get some rest. u_u UU: with any lUck, the next time we convene, both of oUr adventUres will be well Under way. UU: cheerio! TT: You know, I'm not sure anyone ever actually says cheerio. uranianUmbra [UU] ceased cheering timaeusTestified [TT] TT: Unless they're pretending to be British. TT: Oh whatever.
