Ah, if only all wishes could be granted...

Lady Neferis, there is nothing I would ask that is at all within your power to give. From your hands, I want nothing at all.

Lord Wamphyri taps on his terminal, the nightclub around him strangely muted.

Lady Neferis, in answer to your question, you have already provided me with the dream of a lifetime. The chance to truly realise what is in my heart, and to step outside myself and examine the moment. The fact is, I'm already living the dream. With David. And my only wish would be for that to go on for as long as I draw breath.

Wamp closes his terminal, and looks around.

Revan Neferis asks for our dreams, dreams she would judge and deem worthy or unworthy, dreams she would grant if they were indeed grand and worthy of her attention.

My dream is simple. I've no need of money nor fame. No desire to live in the lap of luxury.

My dream is simple. I would see the torch pass. I would see the Sani Sabik without Revan Neferis as its Sovereign.

Nikita sighs solemnly and smiles at the camera.

Honestly, the isk is just a means to an end for me, If I could achieve that end through better means, I would take them just as readily. My goal is to strengthen my people. The Angels have such potential, I want to bring us peace, stability, freedom, happiness, for everyone. For my daughter, for my friends, for my people and their descendent. If I could do that, even if the only way to do it resulted in my death, I would do it in a heartbeat. I want the isk to help create change, prosperity, water in the desert, as it were.

David, surprised at Wamps' announcement, stops for a moment. Reaching for his own terminal, he begins typing.

What I would want, more than anything else, is to know truth. The truth of the heart, soul and mind.

And the wisdom to use the knowledge wisely.

David finishes his entry, closing his terminal and returning his focus to the goings on around him.

My goal for coming here was simple. Earn enough ISK to be able to afford to join the free captains. My ultimate dream is to start a territorial alliance in null sec, but I lack the skillset to do that currently. However... I've changed my mind. My new dream is to join Masuat'aa Matari and return the favor I was granted when my mother was freed from captivity by Shakor.... that, and enough money to afford a T2 Drake.. not much, but money is tight right now, unfortunately. There. Masks off.

The following question was just put to me: What dream do I seek, what dream would I like offered to me, to become reality?

Everyone has their fašades, but only some are capable of throwing them to the wind. I want to embrace everything I am and what I can be - to know who and what I am, and to revel in it.

I want to learn how to throw my fašade away and show my true self. To use what I learn from those above me, my teachers, to continue to better myself, and to provide for the health, happiness and prosperity of those who are important to me, who give my life true meaning beyond the foundation that simple faith and understanding provide.

Goals of self-empowerment and the ability to master our own fate. Of all people, perhaps we capsuleers are better poised to reach for these goals than others. Perhaps that's why the Sani Sabik faith just feels right for me, and has done so for a while now. I came to this competition to learn. To break my boundaries and push my limits to become something better than I am. To discover who I really am, on the inside.

I have half of my dream already, at home. I have the people who are important to me, who I want to have by my side for the rest of my life... now I want to be able to be everything I can be, for their sake, and my own.

And that concludes out Party with amazing revelations. Dreams are made of this.. passions, fire, instincts, desire, love.. ideals higher than life.
That you have come to this conclusion tonight and during my event is very surprising to me. Enlightment isnt something given.

The decision tonight isnt easy but considering all matters, I did promise to announce a Champion to give tonight's prize. And so Ill to someone who I believe have endured the most difficult of choices and who really surprised me beyond words.

It's the first time on my entire capsuleer life that I see someone resisting such offer.
Your dream will be given to you.

Farewell to all, and good luck to the remaining contestants.

I came here confused, thinking I knew what I wanted in this universe. Thinking my life was predetermined, that I knew where I would inevitably be. A confused man can be an irritating thing, and for that I apologize. I came here and found what I wanted from this universe, truly. I found respite, I found peace. What exactly, led me to find this, that would be too difficult to explain. But I think that this new beginning is more valuable than any amount of money I could have won (though it would have been nice..) I leave here a happy man, having gotten what I came for.. even if I didn't know that it was what I wanted when I first started.

Revan,

Thank you.

Like a well played game of chess I moved and made countermoves. I made my way across the board, armed with what weapons I'm most proficient with. But alas, as in chess, I was forced into a position to make a move dictated by my opponent. And so I leave the contest richer for it in experience, in courage, and arguably in wisdom. To those I bumped into along the way it has been a pleasure and I hope it can continue to be one should any wish to remain in contact. To those who may feel as if they were but pawns moved around the board, I would offer my appologies but sadly I am truly not sorry. I had my goal in mind since the opening days of Season 1, and I had resolved to use any means neccessary to reach it, short of what was asked of me tonight. When asked to have the courage to speak my dream I was left with the choice of speaking with courage, or lying as much to the universe as to myself, and I will not lie to myself.

*Bross walks into view a sullen look on his face. Noticing the camera he approaches and sits on the edge of the bed.*

'Well New Eden. I failed this evening. Not once, but twice.'

*Shaking his head, Bross stares off camera.*

'I believed I gave Lady Neferis exactly what she wanted. Some how I came up short. I just don't understand.'

'While the others cavorted, I planned. I planned for my last day alive. While they were swept up in extasy, I stayed strong, focused, determined.'

'Lady Neferis spoke to me of "Chaos Theory". Tonight I applied her thoughts on the matter. I showed her how a small action could develop great power. Even power after death.'

'Apparently... this was not what she wished from us...'

*Bross shakes his head again, the look of confusion firmly planted on his face.*

'I just don't get it...'

*He turns back to the camera.*

'I am sorry New Eden... I need a drink...'

*Bross stands and walks off camera. A few seconds later a door can be heard gently closing with a click. The video feed disconnects.*

Revan Neferis > I will post that at igs too
Revan Neferis > if nothing else, just for me to be remembered that there is still passion in this universe.

Dream Br3aker > /emote looks to Revan with a smile and paitently awaits her answer to the question
Revan Neferis > mmm * ponders the question as she sits back crossing her legs * I would spend it in the arms of the one I love and die there. Strangely enough neither my isk or influence would matter in such regards.
Revan Neferis > Ironic isnt it?

Dream returns to her room quietly her datapad glowing softly as she reviews the igs logs from the evening while her head clears. A smile crossed her lips as she clicked the reference link for the Nyx pausing briefly to look at its slender curves before closing it with a knowing smile

In due time...

Dream turns her attention to her bed and seeing a familiar figure asleep she quietly crept in as to not disturb her and kissed her softly on the neck holding her tight. Things have finally fallen into place, the chaos is coming to order and for that she knows she can rest well

Qansh sits in his room, staring at his data-pad and the news since dinner. He opens the journal function and starts tapping in some notes.

To think that just a few days ago, I thought I was entering a simple modeling contest... At the interview, they called me insane (though I could only take that in a good way somehow). Naive was more like it. Rich digs, rich blood, rich people, and all that goes with it in terms of pleasure, pain, and politics, that's what I've really stepped into. Not a bad thing at all, really. It's just quite a thing to see my supposed book-learned sophistication put to the test in terms of real people and real events. But that's not even the half of it

Qansh sets the data-pad aside and stretches. Damn, he thinks as he staggers to the bed. I hope they left out the virtual hangover-part.

A Nyx is a beautiful ship, truthfully it is probably the most beautiful ship in New Eden and the one I have most desired to own from pure asthetic compulsion as much as anything else. But in my heart I know it is simply a beautiful coffin because it constrains the pilot to a life of caution and fear, pressed into the service of big-battalions and cynical engagements, its beauty and firepower restricted to momentary deployments to bully the weak and fear the strong and leave again to the depths of hidden space or tower to tremble at the memories of almost-failure and hope the fleeting pleasure of success will pass the night-tremors below feeling.

I love the Nyx but it is a poison challice that will kill the one to taste its lips and share its bed. To reject this offer was wise.

But still, I love the Nyx...

Moonlight spills through the window, bathing the two entwined figures in it's pale light. Nausea has her eyes half open, a curiously serene look on her face helpfully underscored by the arm across her body. Carefully, so as not to wake the sleeping figure beside her, she reaches to the bedside table where her datapad is sat, firing up the IGS feed...

No regets. Something of a theme for this evening. Something I have aimed for in the past, and only really embraced tonight. The results were...more than I expected. Far more. Even 'expecting the unexpected' didn't cut it this time...

It is good to truely know there is still...intensity there.

Something has changed.

The figure next to her shifts a little, pulling the woman a touch closer, causing a soft smile to cross the Civire's lips.


And it appears i'll be getting a good night's sleep here for the first time.

She pauses, closing the feed and setting the pad back on it's resting place, closing her eyes and drifting back to sleep, the parting phrase at the bottom of the post:

No Regrets.

Lord Wamphyri staggers through the doorway, his arm around David Estarra's shoulders. "What a night" he says wearily. "My head is still spinning!". David nods in agreement, extricating himself from Wamp's arm and turning to face him. "You're telling me" he replies, reaching out his hands and placing them on Wamp's shoulders. "I saw some pretty unbelievable stuff tonight, including what went on before we entered the club. You still owe me an explanation, and why you stood by while this happened to me" indicating his broken nose, the bruising darkening the skin around his nose a deep purple.
Wamp shifts uncomfortably, lowering his eyes. Scratching the scar on his chest, aggravated by the dancing earlier but still healing. "You're right, of course" he whispers. Looking up and inspecting David's ruined nose he continues. "And I will, but let me sort out your injuries first; we can talk while I clean you up."

Leading David to the bathroom, he sits him down on the edge of the bath. Filling the sink with water, he begins gently wiping the last of the crusted blood from his face. Looking up, he gazes into his eyes, a tear forming in his own. "I'll try to explain as best I can..." he says softly. "And whatever you decide afterwards, I'll respect your decision."

Sighing, he throws the bloody piece of cotton wool in a nearby trash receptacle and resumes his gaze into his eyes. "It started in the arena challenge, with Michael..."

As mentioned to Lady Revan Neferis during last night's function, I have a planetside commitment this Friday for a fortnight, so it would be impossible for me to complete the challenge. Instead of wasting the judges' time, I withdrew from the competition. All in all, philosophy aside, I must say I was rather impressed by the effort put into this competition; I'd like to see another capsuleer try and rival its organization.

Dream awoke refreshed after the previous nights events. Taking her coffee and data-pad to the balcony she smiled as she reviewed the latest posts and keyed her response.

The ship itself was of little concern. There was truly no choice to be made. Temptations like that may effect the minds of the weak, but when your spirit and being are driven by passion and resolve nothing can interfere. Life is not judged by someones combat prowess or skills, but of the reasons behind the actions that are taken. A trivial object such as a starship may be a tool used by people to obtain things but without a purpose that tool serves as nothing more than a way to stroke ones ego. The only thing a capsuleer has to fear is losing their place in the Universe, material things can be replaced, purpose cannot.

Dream finishes her coffee and sets the data-pad down looking out over the balcony on the resort below. It would be a quiet day today, which would give her time to reflect more deeply into what would transpire from here. She turned her attention back to her bed and smiled softly

Hard to read you saying words as heart, lips, bed, pleasure, and "I love " in one single communication to conclude its ending to be about a starship.

David Estarra sits on the balcony in contemplation, absorbing the earlier conversation as he watches the waves of the ocean catching and scattering the light of the slowly fading moon. He fingers the edge of the tape that holds the dressing to the bridge of his nose, wincing as he catches a tender spot. Sighing, he stands, and with a glance through the glass of the balcony doors looks at Lord Wamphyri's sleeping figure in the bed. Taking out his IGS terminal he turns away, leaning on the balcony rail and opens the feed to make a new entry.

Well, this was one helluva night. Wamp was acting strange all day yesterday but I put it down to pre-challenge jitters. I've learnt that any challenge concocted by the Sovereign and the other judges is never as it seems so you go into it with as few expectations as possible, and just do your very best at adapting to the situation around you as it happens. However I certainly didn't expect to have my nose broken by Mr Bross!

What was worse was seeing the man who's always been there for me, guiding and protecting me, standing by and allowing it to happen! I understand now why Wamp let it happen but at the time.." David shakes his head sadly "..I could see in his eyes that it was tearing him apart. And to be fair he did intercede eventually. Thankfully the challenge began at that point and we moved on into the Cocoon Rave.

From what I remember it was an awesome night. The theme was to Live like it was your last day, and the challenge was to demonstrate your ultimate dream through your actions in the club. Everybody was getting into the moment, I got a great opportunity to demonstrate my moves, broken nose aside. I don't remember a lot of details, only that there was a great deal of drinking and dancing going on and I think the smoke was spiked. Like that bothers me! He giggles to himself before continuing. I'm sure I even saw Fort dancing at one point.. I do remember yelling into one of the camera drones though...

Smiling, David closes his terminal and stands up, taking in a deep breath of the early morning air. He stretches and yawns, rubbing his hand on the back of his neck as the sky starts to brighten with the sun just below the horizon. Sliding the doors open, he heads back inside towards the bedroom, leaving the door open and allowing the fresh air to circulate. As he passes a mirror he stops and looks at his reflection. The bruising is already fading and he can almost feel the broken bone in his nose knitting itself back together. "That nanobot injection sure worked fast" he murmers quietly to himself. "I guess I know how an armour tanked starship feels now". Smiling, he climbs into bed and drapes his arm over Wamp, taking hold of his hand.

"Forgiven, not forgotten." he whispers.

In the Perfect Universe
There will be one religion, just the Sani Sabik philosophy of richness, power and wealth.
There will be one government.
There will be one army.
Homelessness will never be an option. The unfit to produce wealth will be eliminated.
Hunger will never cross the lips of man. The unfit to sustain himself will be eliminated.
There will be no poverty. The unfit to use life as it is given will be eliminated.
There will be no diseased. The unfit to use his body and mind to the greater development of mankind will be eliminated.
There will be no evil, as the concept of evil itself will be forever banished from the minds of men.
There will be no waste.
Divinity and men, are one.

*Jenner sits in his office, a thick cloud of cigar smoke hanging in the air as he finishes his discussions with his hooded subordinate and turns his attentions to the gal-net feed reading each post carefully and pausing as he lays sight on last nights occurances. His eyes grow wide as he processes each word spoken by The Sovereign he serves and the bodyguard that serves him. The ashes on the end of the cigar growing thick as he focuses most intently*

She has indeed come a long way *he mutters rubbing his chin*... a very long way.

*He smiles and makes a note to explore his employees desires more deeply in the future and settles on Jades post and laughs to himself*

All these years so close to The Sovereign and she still doesn't get it...

*He turns his attention back to his subordinate and takes a deep puff on his cigar looking directly at him*

I want 3 more search parties organized, Toma needs found and he needs found by Friday... If you are unsuccessful... *grins menacingly as the hooded individual in his office silently nods*

Based on communications here and what is known about the rules of the game, the safe wager going forward has now become an unavailable wager. My associates won't take my bet on the contestant so obviously favored by Lady Neferis, given her right to unilaterally dismiss players.

Lady Neferis, if I might beg a small favor, would you please be so kind as to hold your cards closer to your chest? No one will gamble on what appears to be a sure thing. A greater illusion of chance would keep the ISK flowing.

A shadowy figure, covered in robes, can be seen in the hallway. He slips a letter under Claudia's door, and is off.

Claudia,

The time I spent here with you at the resort was the best of my life. I'm sorry I went and lost this for myself so early.. I never had a chance to give you that tango. But I don't want us to stop talking, or seeing each other. If you can, look me up in Seil. You can find me at the station there. I'll be waiting.

Await your reply,
