Well then. Now that the festival is over, I would like to remind all of you that it’s all fun and games until a war breaks out. [Morbid and horrible as it sounds, he’s being serious this time.] What do you think of the headlines in yesterday’s and today’s news? And if you haven’t already done so, I would recommend that you read the news before you ask any questions.

And if it won’t be a bother, do try to reply in the same way as I did. Unless you’ve forgotten the Fonic alphabet of course; that would be absolutely tragic.

I’ll be brief this time, Professor: I have a concern about my Weapon abilities and I would like to know if you can answer it.

It concerns the Madness Wavelength.

[When Jade finally shows up on the feed, he looks relaxed as ever.]

I find that there’s nothing like a little simulation to keep the mind sharp. [The feed switches to text and shows a five-by-five box with coordinates A-1 to E-5.]

Pick a square, Death City. You might find something fun if you’re lucky~

Bored, are you~

[There's a sliiight hesitation before her gambling nature takes over.] I'll take C-3.

Fortunately, no. However, this '1' that has appeared on your selected square wonders why have you not selected C-4 instead.

[a beat] C-4 sounded explosive.

So the '1' doesn't wonder why I didn't pick C-2?

Its philosophical musings were tragically cut short by a well-placed mine. It seems whoever planted that mine lacks a sense of humor.

How devastating. To think what we could have learned from it. Out of curiosity, though, what does C-4 have to reveal about all this?

Another meaningless death, courtesy of our morbid villain. Some might call him ruthless.

He's something alright. [She scowls to herself.]

A-5 What about that one?

How curious, you've uncovered a 1. And one must now wonder how best to proceed so as to not meet another untimely demise.

Another one? Alright, alright. [No more missteps. Let's think about this.]

B-4

Before witnessing this explosion thrice in a row, I never would have thought that bad luck does happen in threes.

WHAT?! Dammit. [Her luck is ever so much better when she cheats. Faye makes a displeased grunting sound and looks over what she's done so far.]

Hey, so, does this little game of yours start over each time I blow myself up or am I working with what I've got?




Please, there's no need to be dramatic. It starts over each time as the game is over after you've lost it so you'll have to work with what you discover during each session.

I'm simply in touch with my emotions. It's healthy.

And probably better from me than tip toeing through a mine field, imaginary or otherwise.

I can't imagine that tip-toeing in any form is any indication of good health, but I could be proven wrong if I had a test subject.

Sorry, I've got plans. Might I suggest a ballerina?

Yes, of course. I'll be sure to remind them too that you set them up because you had ah, 'sudden plans'.

Oh there's nothing sudden about them. I simply have a very busy social calendar.

Besides, they should be honored to be apart of such a noble experiment. Unless you're dissecting their toes. Then I could see that they might be a little disgruntled.

But not too busy that you can stop to ask an unemployed soldier if he's bored. Or perhaps I should have said that I'm honored that you're making time for me, but it's rude to make assumptions about one's social status and far more rude to deprive someone of their livelihood before making them risk their lives. [And then he pauses thoughtfully. Suspiciously thoughtfully.] At the same time, the threat of dissection should ideally make them perform well enough that they just may escape unharmed.

.... [That pause of his is a little disconcerting, but she plunges on anyway.]

For you? I'll always make time to chat~

As for the ballerinas, they are known for their leaping skills. You might want to account for that in your experiment design or they might escape before you have a chance to record anything. They probably won't let you know they're leaving until they are out the window. Poor manners if you ask me, but it should negate any rudeness from including them in the experiment in the first place.

I'm touched.

I suppose it would only be proper that I account for their ability to escape as well. After all, I suppose it's easy for anyone to take their chances with attempted suicide if they're on the first floor and the only other option available involves a dance with death. I hear that he is unpredictable in his movements and unusually energetic.
