Douglas Sharper:
Can I be honest?
Miroku:
Are they really THAT sensitive?
Alan:
Of course you can.
Rivenchan:
I wont tell
Guiun:
I don’tknow, can you?
Rivenchan:
^_^
VuVo:
*no one will tell*
Douglas Sharper:
I don’t know many of you or where you stand. I talk as though you all have issues with the DRC and that isn’t smart.
Douglas Sharper:
Many of you could go to them with things I’ve said.
Douglas Sharper:
That gets me in trouble.
Rivenchan:
I think a lot of us arn’t exactly pleased with how the DRC is handleing us
Alan:
I have issues with the DRC treating me as if I were a 2 year old unable to take care of myself.
Guiun:
I love the DRC
Guiun:
:P
Douglas Sharper:
Well a lot have issues and a lot don’t.
VuVo:
Why would you be saying things the DRC wouldn’t like?
Guiun:
Except they’re a little to lax.
Guiun:
too lax
Guiun roars with laughter
Miroku:
I have concerns about the way they are handling things.
Douglas Sharper:
The DRC is touchy. Any little thing can be taken as “bad”.
Douglas Sharper:
Many do.
Rivenchan:
If you don’t want to talk about the DRC, we could talk about Yeesha and Zandi ^_^ I’m sure they wont mind if we say bad things about them, would they?
Alan:
Could they keep you out of D’ni if they wanted to, Douglas?
VuVo:
So your advise is what exactly?
Douglas Sharper:
I know Yeesha wouldn’t care.
Daedalus:
I don’t see how anyone would have the power to kick someone from D’ni
Daedalus:
i dunno
Miroku:
I worry that they are in danger of becoming power-drunk
Rivenchan:
I meant the DRC - the DRC doesn’t seem to enjoy what Zandi’s doing
Daedalus:
they’re not governing, just restoring
Alan:
Well I noticed that Douglas isn’t wearing a Linking book like the rest of us.
Douglas Sharper:
No advice really. Just follow the line for now.
Rivenchan:
So i doubt they would mind what your opinions of Zandi and Yeesha are
Daedalus:
but they ACT like they’re governing
Douglas Sharper:
Zandi: the guy bugs the DRC and I like that.
Douglas Sharper:
Yeesha: dead lady so I don’t care much.
Alan:
We don’t have much choice about following the line until they get rid of more of these cones and barricades anyway.
75th Trombone:
Well it is sorta their gig. I mean I have “issues” like anyone else, but I haven’t seen anything egregious enough to warrant quite THIS much consternation… …maybe I’ve just not paid enough attention
Rivenchan:
I’ve heard rumors that Yeesha isn’t really dead
75th Trombone:
so’ve I
Douglas Sharper:
I’ve heard rumors she is really dead.
Rivenchan:
Who all thinks she’s really dead?
Miroku:
I have every intention of following the rules, but I want to know why the rules are in place. The word “safety” is not sufficient to allay my fears.
Guiun:
I hope she’s dead
Alan:
Good point, Miroku.
Rivenchan:
Have you found journals confirming it?
Guiun:
*is evil*
Douglas Sharper:
Not me.
Rivenchan:
Has anyone?
VuVo:
Not one way or the other.
Douglas Sharper:
She’s supposed to be two hundred and some years old or something. What more proof do you want?
VuVo:
350 wouldnt’ be unknown.
75th Trombone:
We don’t know how the long d’ni lifespans may or may not have been diluted in Yeesha’s genes
Alan:
Uh, don’t the D’ni live longer than that?
Miroku:
Time IS relative.
Rivenchan:
(laughs) you are talking about a decendant from a race that routinely made it to that age
Guiun:
she’s not d’ni
Douglas Sharper:
Yeesha has a touch of the D’ni blood.
Rivenchan:
Long life might be a dominant trait
Alan:
Well Catherine was only supposed to be slightly less longer lived than Atrus.
Guiun:
Heh - she’s touched all right….
D’ehgan:
but not pure D’ni
VuVo:
I hope I look that good at 200
Rivenchan:
i mean, we dont exactly know how long gehn, sirrus, or achenar lived
Douglas Sharper:
And Atrus didn’t live that long.
Alan:
And Yeesha being their daughter, she’s 3/4 D’ni.
Rivenchan:
How long did Atrus live?
75th Trombone:
How long DID Atrus live? And how did he die?
devon:
Catherine wasn’t D’ni.
Douglas Sharper:
Atrus was 1/4 D’ni.
Rivenchan:
umm.. so?
Alan:
Ok, I knew my math had gone sour somewhere.
Alan:
(like, 15 years ago)
Rivenchan:
just because my mother is 5 ft and my dad is 6ft doesn’t mean i have to be 5’6” ^_~
Douglas Sharper:
Either eway I don’t buy women living 200 years and running all over Ages.
VuVo:
lol
Douglas Sharper:
Sorry.
VuVo:
HOld on…
Alan:
So are you saying there are NO D’ni living now?
75th Trombone:
Doug, it might do your cause good to not be quiiiite so impetuous in your opinion-forming…
Douglas Sharper:
Not saying that.
Alan:
Good, cause didn’t Marie write that she thinks she met one?
Jensen:
who did you meet that you talked about in you journal?
Douglas Sharper:
I’m not going to fudge my opinion to try and gain friends like the DRC.
D’ehgan:
aaaaaaaaa
Rivenchan:
But you’re fudging your opinions because youre afraid of the DRC
75th Trombone:
Sounds like you’re slightly fudging your opinion=—- yep
Douglas Sharper:
DRC is being real quiet. But I think they’ve met one.
Alan:
He’s not fudging, he’s just not giving his opinions.
D’ehgan cheers
VuVo:
Careful Doug. This might be one of those things that will come back to haunt you.
Douglas Sharper:
Not fudging my opinion - fudging my public voice.
Miroku:
I don’t want you to tell me what I want to hear, I want to know the facts.
Alan:
Douglas, just speculation, but might the D’ni not like the fact that we’ve taken up residence in their ancestral home?
Rivenchan:
Have you heard any news recently about the D’ni survivor?
Douglas Sharper:
If you want to talk in private, I’ll be glad too.
Douglas Sharper:
I wouldn’t.
Rivenchan:
I’d love to talk privately ^_^
Miroku:
I’d like that.
Douglas Sharper:
Alan - I wouldn’t.
Alan:
Yeah, me either… Food for thought.
Douglas Sharper:
Maybe one of you should start a place where we can talk about the DRC without their knowledge.
75th Trombone:
I was thinking about that yesterday
Alan:
How can we do that?
Guiun:
the d’ni wouldn’t have a say in us being here. they blew up the place and left
Rivenchan:
News spreads like wildfire in this carvern - if the DRC keeps their ears open, they’d find out about anywhere we could start up
Alan:
Guiun, most of them were forced out by the plague, weren’t they?
Douglas Sharper:
There is always something on the surface.
D’ehgan:
thier ears and eyes are everywhere
Guiun:
lol sure - that’s what they WANT you to think
75th Trombone:
birds… ..beasts… ;)
Rivenchan:
no offence, but the DRC also has internet access ^_~
Alan:
What we really need is an Age that the DRC doesn’t know about.
Rivenchan:
Unless we passcoded everything, i think it would be silly to assume the DRC wouldn’t find out
Douglas Sharper:
Well that’s the tough part isn’t it?
Douglas Sharper:
Tough be ruled by Big Brother.
Neema:
What about in the neighborhoods, I have heard rumor of a private meeting area in the hoods
Jensen:
Who knows? maybe I am a DRC member in disguise!
Guiun:
oh yeah….
Rivenchan:
Why do you believe the DRC to be Big Brother?
Douglas Sharper:
Exactly.
Alan:
The neighborhoods that the DRC is setting up webcams in all the time? Those neighborhoods?
Jensen:
we have to take some risk
75th Trombone:
Victor would notice, he’d be able to see the new neighborhood and wonder why so many people are there
Douglas Sharper:
Aren’t you the one who just said they find out everything?
Guiun:
lol
Rivenchan:
I said that can find out anything, i didn’t say that they were intentionally watching us
Douglas Sharper:
Please.
Rivenchan:
Do you think they are?
75th Trombone:
well I would be if a bunch of yahoos were in a cavern I was restoring ;-)
Douglas Sharper:
Right.
Rivenchan:
lol, that’s true ^_^
75th Trombone:
that doesnt’ make ‘em bad though. Not to say there’s not other stuff going on.
Douglas Sharper:
Of course.
Guiun:
I hope they are watching me at all times. that way if I fall an break a nail, they can save me.
Douglas Sharper:
Ha
Alan:
haha, we We could always appropriate a webforum… Something unrelated to D’ni or the DRC…
Rivenchan:
lol
Rivenchan:
i’d pity the people who were using the forum before we nabbed it bleh.gif
Alan:
Maybe some NASA forum or something :)
75th Trombone:
you mean a “”meeting place”” that the DRC wouldn’t “”find”“?
Douglas Sharper:
I like you Alan.
Alan:
Thank you, Douglas.
Douglas Sharper:
Clever man.
Rivenchan:
If the DRC is always watching us, is it even safe to discuss this here?
Miroku:
What about someone’s Relto?
Alan:
Well its not like I’m saying here, go to this NASA forum and start a DRC discussion thread…
75th Trombone:
Doug might not appreciate that..
75th Trombone:
Alan> we get it ;)
Douglas Sharper:
Only if someone from here tells them what was said. And then we know somewhere here isn’t trustworthy.
Alan:
I’m suggesting an alternative to holding suspicious meetings in a cavern that the DRC has complete access to.
75th Trombone:
Yep
Miroku:
The DRC doesn’t have access to Relto’s , ….or do they?
75th Trombone:
a “”“meeting place”“” …. …that the DRC could only “”find”” if someone roots it out from within
Rivenchan:
I dont think they do
VuVo:
lol
Jensen:
Sharper: what do you think of Zandi?
Douglas Sharper:
Interesting man.
Alan:
Douglas, did you ever meet his father?
Douglas Sharper:
Never had the chance.
Douglas Sharper:
Of course he is why we are all here.
Rivenchan:
How did you form bonds with the DRC in the first place?
Alan:
Well, he and an almost extinct race of humans from before recorded history.
Douglas Sharper:
Was a very early visitor. Back in the early days.
Rivenchan:
But why did the DRC let you visit?
Rivenchan:
Or did you sneak down? ^_~
Alan:
Oh, Douglas, sorry for breaking into your safe in Teledahn.
Guiun:
*gasps*
Alan:
:)
Miroku:
You predate the DRC, don’t you?
Miroku:
That is, you came down before the founding of the DRC
Douglas Sharper:
Around the same time.
Douglas Sharper:
Well I need to be heading off. Have a meeting with someone.
Alan:
Thanks for stopping in, Douglas.
Alan:
It was nice to finally meet you.
Miroku:
Good to meet you.
D’ehgan:
good luck
VuVo:
Good talking with you Doug.
Douglas Sharper:
Good to meet you all.
Rivenchan:
I hope the meeting the DRC is having about you goes well
Neema:
Later DS
Douglas Sharper:
Talk to you later.
