YarnKittymon: : ::it's still a few days before
Maeve's funeral; after a day's hiatus, the play has continued,
but some of the performances have been pretty poor, and Libby
hasn't bothered to be in it at all::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::tried to keep going with the play, to keep her mind off things, but gave up as the funeral got closer::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::has divided his time pretty evenly between spending time with Becky and laying on his bed in his room, thinking; an idea's starting to come to mind, but it hasn't quite solidified yet; right now, he's with Becky, staying quiet::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::is sitting on her bed, rather quiet herself as she's drifted back to thinking about Maeve::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::finally, softly:: I keep thinking of Christa, and I don't know why. She's fine, or was yesterday, anyway.
Maeve34: ((do they know about donald?))
YarnKittymon: ((I think they know about Donald, and Becky could ask Toby what the heck he's talking about ^_- Unless you think he would've already explained; he might have))
YarnKittymon: ((Christa is in one of the side-story things; the person Toby escaped from the lab with))
YarnKittymon: (( http://www.juliestudio.com/freakshow/archive/v071828.html ))
Quantum Catz: ((is it that morse code thingy?))
YarnKittymon: ((Ding ding...probably, anyway; it might've just been a simple touch to the lips, which was Christa's old signal for 'everything's fine'))
Quantum Catz: BM: ::blinks, her thoughts returning to the room:: Yesterday?
YarnKittymon: TY: Yeah; yesterday she sent me a message to say she was OK. She and her mom are moving inland from Gate Town, to see how they'll like it.
Quantum Catz: BM: Oh, right ::smiles slightly:: I'm glad she's happy there
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly:: I'm so glad you helped her...
Quantum Catz: BM: ::shrugs:: Well i couldn't just leave her, could i?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::nods; even more quietly:: Any idea when you'll be able to go through time again?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::softly:: Usually when i overuse my powers it only takes a day or so...but i guess that last time wasn't quite the same
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly:: I'm going crazy waiting. I hate...leaving her like this...
Quantum Catz: BM: ::wraps her arms around her body; a bit guiltily:: Wait long enough and Dominick'll show up - then he can take the responsibility if it all ends up even worse...
YarnKittymon: TY: I know he'll show up sometime, but I want it to be fixed *now.* ::a little angrily:: I'm tired of feeling like this! She saved your life, and if she hadn't...
YarnKittymon: TY: ::pauses; quietly::. ...then I don't know what I would've done...
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks away from him, guiltily:: I don't know if i can go back...i don't know if i want to try and change it...
YarnKittymon: TY: We *have* to!
Quantum Catz: BM: ::sharply:: The last time i tried to help someone they killed another one of my friends and i had to go back and change *that*! Do you *realise* how hard it is, knowing that *I* made that happen?
YarnKittymon: TY: But you made it all all right in the end, right?
Quantum Catz: BM: Before he was off in his own world, totally traumatised by the labs...now he's a criminal who wanders around doing whatever the hell he wants...unless his dad had him locked up again
YarnKittymon: TY: ::looks down, then punches Becky's mattress:: I don't care! She saved your life! Don't we owe something to her?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::softly:: You think i don't know that? But i can't even pretend that my powers were maybe given to me to help change things like this...cos i was first made by idiots with god-complexs
YarnKittymon: TY: ::glares, looking away from Becky:: Well, I'll fix it, then.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::confused:: How?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::slumps back down:: I don't know. I'll think of something. ::closes his eyes, lost in thought::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::sighs:: I'm sorry ::although whether that's actually directed at Toby isn't entirely clear::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::very suddenly opens his eyes:: Christa *is* the answer!
Quantum Catz: BM: ::blinks:: What?
YarnKittymon: TY: She's in the *future*! I can...I can send her a message, right? All I have to do is give it to someone to send it 70 years or however long it is from now!
Quantum Catz: BM: What and tell her to warn you Maeve'll die? ::doesn't look too enamoured with the idea::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::nods quickly:: It'll be like it never happened! She'll just warn me a day or two before it happens, we get Maeve out of New York City, and everything'll work out!
YarnKittymon: ((Christa is living in approximately the 'present' day that we're in. Her talent is being a 'human voodoo doll' of sorts; she can make other people feel what she's feeling, only worse, be it a knife wound or a tap on the shoulder))
YarnKittymon: ((Somehow, she's able to use her talents on Toby, who's all the way back in the 1920s, so she can send him messages, from the future))
Quantum Catz: BM: Or...we try to break Maeve out and *you* end up dead, libby ends up dead or *i* end up dead, or anyone else who decides they want to join in...and then maeve dies anyway
YarnKittymon: TY: We're not going to have to break her out of anywhere! Christa will tell us before she gets arrested!
Quantum Catz: BM: ::remembers the Alex she saved; sighs:: Or Maeve turns into a psycho-criminal and fireballs everyone who gets in her way for the rest of her life...
YarnKittymon: TY: ::frowns, looking away:: If tha'ts what happens, fine. She saved your life, Becky, and I'm not going to let her die if there's some way to prevent it.
Quantum Catz: BM: I'm sorry but...i just don't like trying to make drastic changes to things - you don't think *i* feel like i owe her, considering that it was *my* life and she was *my* friend?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly:: If you had died back there...you can't tell me you wouldn't want me to try to make it like it'd never happened?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::hesitates then says:: Yes, i can. Everyone dies at some point - but who're we to decide when they don't?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::stands up; quietly:: Well, I don't care. You can't stop me from writing her.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::sighs:: I know
YarnKittymon: TY: If it works, we'll have never had this fight.
Quantum Catz: BM: Might well have a completely different one if you tell me how you know Maeve should run
YarnKittymon: TY: ::smirks:: What's a lie you'd believe about how I found out?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles weakly:: Like i'd tell you that
YarnKittymon: TY: If it doesn't work, we'll go change it again, until it works out. Not that that makes you feel any better...
Quantum Catz: BM: You can keep on changing things forever...nothing's ever perfect...and some things happen no matter how hard you try to change them
YarnKittymon: TY: But you learned that the hard way. Give me a chance to try it out for myself, okay?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::shrugs:: Didn't say i was going to stop you, did i?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::smiles weakly:: No, but I don't want you to hate me, either.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::softly:: I won't hate you
YarnKittymon: TY: ::smiles weakly; after a moment, blushing a little:: I'm in love with you, Becky.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::stands up, smiling, and kisses him::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::puts his arms around Becky, kissing back for quite a while::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::pulls away and smiles at him:: You know...if your plan works...this won't have happened either
YarnKittymon: TY: ::half-smiling; softly:: I know. But I'm sure I'll take the chance again, even if it takes a little longer next time...
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles:: You'd better
YarnKittymon: TY: ::smiles a little more:: I'll see you later, then...or sooner...depending, I guess. ::heads to the door:: 'Bye...
Quantum Catz: BM: ::her smile fades slightly as he leaves:: Bye
On to Wednesday, August 8, 1928 (second take)
