WHAT THE HELL. I take a break from the computer for a while to deal with some things and I come back to my best friend getting named as a SAGE?!??!? I mean... fucking hell. I haven't checked through many updates.... so behind on updates.... fuck, I mean.... it's one hell of a Title and I'm proud of her. I always said she was something special and I guess you guys see it too. She saved me from my own black abyss way back when.... and I know she'll do her best to uphold the responsibility given to her. But.... Sage? Come on, hun, SAGE??? THAT track record?!?! The only one who's come out of it still REMOTELY sane is in fact Maduin himself and he was nuts to begin with!!
Speaking of which: Maduin, I may have to kill you for this.
Fuck. My best friend... I still can't believe it. I can't decide if it's good news or terrifying news. If anyone can help to put this train back on its tracks, she's definitely one of them but... I'm scared for her.
I've made a promise now and, no matter what she says, I'm sticking to it. If she wants to be a shield to protect the Community to the best of her ability, then I'll set myself as the nutcase that'll protect her so she can. We may be separate now but... each day as it comes. She won't follow the path laid by the other Sages. I won't let that happen. Sage and Kay, I wish you the best but I don't know either of you so, honestly, I can't wish you more than that. Hakurei.... hun, you'll never be a Fighter. I won't let you have that burden. No matter where it lands me and it may not mean much in the end but.... I have your back.
Oh, and to make a bad day worse - a heads-up to the Community. I was wrong. Morningstar is NOT dead. The names of the "terrorists" were made public earlier today - Luke Cifer was NOT among them. Guess the Mounties aren't as badass as I pegged them as.
