CALLIOPE: a dead session is an impossible time challenge. CALLIOPE: the planets detonate sooner and sooner, one by one. it is a trial designed to be unwinnable. CALLIOPE: a muse of space could never solve it. but a lord of time could, with relentless perseverence. CALLIOPE: it could only be him. CALLIOPE: my brother? CALLIOPE: yes. CALLIOPE: i was never meant to rise to the place he holds because the game was rigged. CALLIOPE: tilted in favor of his aspect. CALLIOPE: having gained immortality, i could sit forever in a spent dead session. CALLIOPE: or i could seek counsel with the mother of monsters. CALLIOPE: and that is why you stand in my memory of her lair.
