Post TwentyFour: A Warning

[Flitered from drones/Grady/etc]

Considering the recent events I believe we should prepare ourselves. I don't know who was here the last time the town decided to punish us, after the riots. But if you remember, people were killed and we were told it was commited by other people among us.

They wanted to divide us and I wouldn't be surprised if they try to do that again. Not the exact same thing as before but something to make us doubt each other. Please keep that in mind for the future.

Thank you. I'm hoping some people will remember if the town tries to make us fear each other again.

Good luck with that. Stressed out people don't think the best.

[identity profile] the-wee-big-hag.livejournal.com 2010-10-29 12:25 am (UTC)(link)
No they don't really.

Makes my job all the more difficult.

[identity profile] weiss-tank.livejournal.com 2010-10-29 12:26 am (UTC)(link)
Well, I'm rootin' for ya!

[identity profile] the-wee-big-hag.livejournal.com 2010-10-29 12:29 am (UTC)(link)
Thank you.

I'm Tiffany Aching by the way.

Hi Tiffany, I'm Ken. I've heard you over the phones but this is the first time we've talked. It's nice to meetcha.

[identity profile] the-wee-big-hag.livejournal.com 2010-10-29 12:34 am (UTC)(link)
It's nice to meet you as well.

Yes, the telephones are rather strange that way. It's been a year but I still think these things are quite strange.

[identity profile] weiss-tank.livejournal.com 2010-10-29 05:40 am (UTC)(link)
Well, it could be worse. But I still prefer just talking to people.

[identity profile] the-wee-big-hag.livejournal.com 2010-10-29 07:54 pm (UTC)(link)
So do I. You don't get the same things out of a conversation if you are not face to face with them.

[identity profile] weiss-tank.livejournal.com 2010-10-30 12:34 am (UTC)(link)
Yeah, exactly! A friend of mine doesn't believe me, but he talks to most people over the internet so I guess he prefers non face to face.

[identity profile] the-wee-big-hag.livejournal.com 2010-10-30 12:35 am (UTC)(link)
....the internet? What's that?

[identity profile] weiss-tank.livejournal.com 2010-10-30 12:38 am (UTC)(link)
Oh, you don't have that in your world? It's kinda like...oh...[He has to think about this for a minute]

Er, it's kinda like a text based phone line.

[identity profile] the-wee-big-hag.livejournal.com 2010-10-30 12:38 am (UTC)(link)

A phone line?

...we don't have electricity in my world...

[identity profile] weiss-tank.livejournal.com 2010-10-30 12:39 am (UTC)(link)
Well, like we're talking now, over the phone, but with words on a screen like the TV.

[identity profile] the-wee-big-hag.livejournal.com 2010-10-30 12:42 am (UTC)(link)
....so you talk to people through the screen...but with writing?

[identity profile] weiss-tank.livejournal.com 2010-10-30 12:46 am (UTC)(link)
Yeah. I don't use it much myself but he does quite a bit. I swear that boy's part computer sometimes.

[identity profile] the-wee-big-hag.livejournal.com 2010-10-30 12:47 am (UTC)(link)

Do you know how it works?

[identity profile] weiss-tank.livejournal.com 2010-10-30 12:49 am (UTC)(link)
Not really, I was never much into computers. I think some of the other people around here would be able to tell you a lot more then I can.

[identity profile] ergaleomancer.livejournal.com 2010-10-28 11:29 pm (UTC)(link)
Good to know. Thank you for the warning.

[identity profile] the-wee-big-hag.livejournal.com 2010-10-29 12:13 am (UTC)(link)
You're welcome. I'm hoping if we remember that what they want us to do is divide our forces, we might avoid doing so.

[identity profile] eldest-hatter.livejournal.com 2010-10-28 11:34 pm (UTC)(link)
I was going to say something similar. I'm glad you said it though.

[identity profile] the-wee-big-hag.livejournal.com 2010-10-29 12:15 am (UTC)(link)
[She nods. Taking her witches hat off.]

We try to keep people from panicking as witches. Trying to remind people to keep level heads is hard when they're already in hysterics. I'm hoping that getting to them a little earlier will help.

[identity profile] eldest-hatter.livejournal.com 2010-10-29 01:14 am (UTC)(link)
I think it's an excellent idea. The more calm we are, then the better chance we have of getting what we want.

[identity profile] the-wee-big-hag.livejournal.com 2010-10-29 01:20 am (UTC)(link)
And less likely to believe the town when they tell us to mistrust each other.

[identity profile] eldest-hatter.livejournal.com 2010-10-29 01:23 am (UTC)(link)
Yes. I certainly hope so.

[identity profile] the-wee-big-hag.livejournal.com 2010-10-29 01:26 am (UTC)(link)
....I'm hoping they don't repeat the last time they punished us.

[identity profile] eldest-hatter.livejournal.com 2010-10-29 01:32 am (UTC)(link)
Or anything worse, for that matter.

[identity profile] the-wee-big-hag.livejournal.com 2010-10-29 01:33 am (UTC)(link)
.....yes. I'm sure they could come up with much worse if they wished to.

[identity profile] eldest-hatter.livejournal.com 2010-10-29 01:38 am (UTC)(link)
Let's just hope that they don't.

[identity profile] the-wee-big-hag.livejournal.com 2010-10-30 12:36 am (UTC)(link)
Perhaps they aren't as creative as we are.

[identity profile] deaths-heritor.livejournal.com 2010-10-29 12:45 am (UTC)(link)
If we divide any more, we may as well start forming the two camps now. It sounded more like an empty threat, to be honest.

[identity profile] the-wee-big-hag.livejournal.com 2010-10-29 12:48 am (UTC)(link)
They said something similar last time they decided to start killing us off. I'm hoping some people might listen to reason before panicking this time.

[identity profile] deaths-heritor.livejournal.com 2010-10-29 12:53 am (UTC)(link)
Succumbing to panic is a bit like catching the flu. No one thinks they'll fall prey until they wake up one morning shivering and light-headed with the contents of their stomachs evacuating out both ends.

It's good of you to try, though.

[identity profile] the-wee-big-hag.livejournal.com 2010-10-29 01:07 am (UTC)(link)
Someone has to. It might as well be me.

[identity profile] deaths-heritor.livejournal.com 2010-10-29 01:23 am (UTC)(link)
Let's just cross that bridge when we get to it. I'm sure you'll do admirably, but I'm not too sure about the rest of the town.

[identity profile] the-wee-big-hag.livejournal.com 2010-10-29 01:26 am (UTC)(link)
I'm hoping a few people will remember to think before they act.

....I don't think many will.

[identity profile] the-wee-big-hag.livejournal.com 2010-10-29 01:33 am (UTC)(link)

Last time things were quite chaotic. England wouldn't let me leave the house after Sophie was killed.

[identity profile] deaths-heritor.livejournal.com 2010-10-31 01:35 am (UTC)(link)
And we can see how well that plan turned out this time. It's relatively more protection, I suppose.

[identity profile] the-wee-big-hag.livejournal.com 2010-10-31 01:42 am (UTC)(link)
Yes. He tends to be rather over protective at times.

[identity profile] deaths-heritor.livejournal.com 2010-10-31 02:39 am (UTC)(link)
He's a good man. We met briefly the other day.

[A simple compliment, but from Susan, it means a great deal.]

[identity profile] the-wee-big-hag.livejournal.com 2010-10-31 02:42 am (UTC)(link)
Did you?

[That's because he isn't trying to make your curfew 2pm.]

[identity profile] deaths-heritor.livejournal.com 2010-10-31 02:50 am (UTC)(link)
You . . . Were you aware that the Russian was in your house for a few hours earlier?

[identity profile] the-wee-big-hag.livejournal.com 2010-10-31 12:15 pm (UTC)(link)
Oh yes. I found out about it.

[identity profile] deaths-heritor.livejournal.com 2010-11-01 12:20 am (UTC)(link)
I paid your house a visit when I found out.

[identity profile] the-wee-big-hag.livejournal.com 2010-11-01 12:22 am (UTC)(link)
I see.
