JADE: then um JADE: what am i supposed to do when i wake up? CALLIOPE: by then, the fight should be over. CALLIOPE: assuming your friends were successful, you must use your abilities to seed the new universe with your new home. CALLIOPE: that is all. JADE: thats it??? JADE: but i want to help them all with the fight! JADE: it sounds dangerous.... JADE: and i have all these powers! JADE: really GOOD powers JADE: maybe even... the BEST powers? CALLIOPE: yes, they are the best powers. JADE: so why cant i just wake up and USE them?? CALLIOPE: powers such as yours are a great asset, but in time, become an even greater liability. CALLIOPE: that is why you sleep. JADE: i dont understand! CALLIOPE: you will not be able to control them for the purpose of your mission. CALLIOPE: you are barely in control of your most modest capabilities. CALLIOPE: you are still quite young, and your kind is soft. CALLIOPE: the ability to absolutely dominate is better housed in a being designed for seclusion, singularity of purpose, and remorseless resolve. CALLIOPE: it is too much for one like you. JADE: ... JADE: youre probably right JADE: actually, its JADE: scary to think about sometimes CALLIOPE: it won't be a problem for much longer. JADE: huh? CALLIOPE: it's not your concern. CALLIOPE: until then, you may want to appreciate the final moments of intimate connection to this continuum's supreme source of power. JADE: ... how CALLIOPE: that's up to you. CALLIOPE: if you must have advice, i will give you some similar to that i gave your other space-playing friend. CALLIOPE: i told her to live, where before she had not. CALLIOPE: so too, you are similarly imprisoned by various inertias. CALLIOPE: these weigh on you. CALLIOPE: you are a child, belonging to a race for which that distinction is understood to correspond with experiences of "enjoyment." CALLIOPE: perhaps you should try to have, CALLIOPE: "fun."
