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.


I want my tie back.

...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.


I'm a Sani Sabik Sovereign therefore a perfectionist.
Your comment is appreciated.

Till next!

Lord Wamphyri grits his teeth as he tries to open the door again, which has steadfastly refused to budge for several hours. "God DAMMIT" he yells, still having no luck. "At this rate we're going to miss the next challenge completely!". "Chances are everybody else is having the same problem" David Estarra sighs, checking his face in the mirror. "I wouldn't get so worked up about it.. we'll have plenty of time to work up a sweat later" he chuckles, turning to Wamp and moving towards him. "Come on, take a break. Go and look at the IGS feed for a bit while I try again.".

Wamp thumps the door with a closed fist once more before stepping aside with a clear look of frustration on his face. He sits on the edge of his bed and takes out his terminal as David moves to the door.


I'm not sure what's wrong with the VR system. We've been trapped in here for hours. I guess there must be a glitch somewhere, but damn do I need a drink!

Last nights events were intense as usual, although the setting was a lot more palatable. I have a feeling I acted like a bit of an ******* though. I know I was in a foul mood in the beginning and it would be easy to blame the drink and drugs but I have to take responsibility for my actions nonetheless. If memory serves, I owe Qansh a huge apology. I was extremely impressed with Fort's ability to focus and meditate in the middle of the cacophony going on around him - I think I could learn a lot from the fellow. I was also impressed with Dream and I'm not surprised she won the challenge. To turn down a Nyx mothership for her ultimate dream was huge and has earned her the right to be Sani Sabik. My respect for her has increased tenfold.

The situation with Michael Bross has been resolved. David's nose is healing quickly, and should be back to normal by tomorrow. I do not wish to dwell on the subject for long, it was a painful experience for us both and not one either of us wishes to repeat. We will take the pain and it will make us stronger.

David cheers suddenly. "It's open! I got it open!". Wamp looks up and sighs in relief, closing his terminal. "You genius! What would I do if I didn't have you around? Come on, we'd best get moving!" he says, taking David's hand and walking out.

Well, I see Wamp has managed to lower the tone once again, and dragged me down with him. *laughs* I guess I should try and balance it out. This was taken when curiosity got the better of me and I broke into some quarters to have a look around while they were still being built. Linkage

FADE IN:

Qansh is pacing his virtual room in his virtual underwear.

QANSH: What the hell is wrong with me? [punching the wall for emphasis] A I am getting hypersensitive to every little nuance of power B "that every little nuance" is the about 2% that I'm even capable of perceiving C I'm getting all uppity about being a supposed-superman with the nuance thing and D I'm just plain dumb about how I'll stop myself from getting all uppity. I post a link to show me looking fat? What the hell is that? IT'S A MODELING CONTEST. Mother of God!

Qansh sits down and shakes his head. He looks at his chest and mimes exploding something slimy out of it.

He stands again and and starts opening and closing drawers then stops.

QANSH: Figures. No bibles. [pauses] Oh, yeah. There's THAT.

He reaches to the top of the wardrobe and pulls down a slender tome. We SEE, embossed on the cover, the title, SELECTED EXCERPTS FROM THE APOCRYPHA, BOOK OF INITIATIONS.

QANSH: OK, answer me this, what the hell is my problem?

He opens the book at random and plants a finger inside, then he reads at the spot where it landed.

He blinks.

He blinks again.

Still reading, he steps over to the nightstand and flips on the light. He settles into the bed. He licks a finger and turns a page...

I managed to take this this shot earlier while I was checking on the progress of some routine maintenance to the Cruoris' Embrace.

I'm definitely not much of an amateur photographer, but this was among the best I could find in my more recent collection - perhaps I should take to doing more of it.

CHALLENGE ANNOUNCEMENT



"Playing with Fire? Sleeping with the Devil? Do you wanna die happy?"

22th starting at 21:000EVE

Our challenge tonight will be a classic challenge from our Resort's books. We, Judges are very aware that many of you didn't have the chance yet to approach us, considering that the resort is always very active. So tonight, as we have only 15 of you with us, we will give you the opportunity to spend some time alone with one of us, in a room of your own.

Make your decision, announce your chosen judge and make sure to prepare well for this opportunity. Tonight is a precious moment where you can have our full attention so use it well.

Judges will consider IGS post order to accomodate requests, following that to who is present at the resort in time.

This is a decisive moment where Eliminations will be done based on it. 15 of you stand here now. in two days, only 10 will remain.

Good luck to all!

I choose to spend some time with Lady Neferis. Who would be a better guide to the Sani Sabik way then my Sovereign? I'm sure we have much to discuss.

Sous le ciel étoilée la tentation se transforma en désire;
Mais dans l'ombre de la nuit une lumière me guida dans le chemin de l'avenir,
Me montrant petit à petit ma place dans notre Empire.

'Lady Neferis... Thank you for this opportunity to once again show our true selves to the judges. With your blessing I would like to sit with Judge Punx Evangeline. I believe it is time to rebuild my raport with the lady.'

David Estarra is relaxing in the hot tub, stretched out and letting the water jets pummel the muscles in his back. He scrolls through the IGS feed on his terminal, balanced precairiously on the side. Stopping at an entry he looks, an incredulous look on his face, before bursting out laughing. "Wamp!" he shouts "Look at the IGS feed". Still chuckling, he turns his head in the direction of the door as Lord Wamphyri calls "On it..". David laughs again as the sound of cackling suddenly emanates from the room, and begins making an entry on the terminal.

A quiet night last night, after a glitch in the VR kept us locked in our room till late. Apparently it wasn't just us that had problems getting to the main resort, so the Sovereign decided to forgo challenges and eliminations. I don't think many people were up to doing too much anyway; there were a lot of sore heads after the night before!

Actually, to say there were no challenges isn't strictly true.. Lady Nerferis decided on an impromptu challenge of getting us to post pictures of us in our quarters. Typically Wamp had to drag the tone down to the gutter.. *he chuckles to himself* ..but it seemed to go down well! I would like to say I was embarrassed but then I'd be telling lies..

So we're on to tonight. I've just seen the challenge announcement from Lady Neferis so I'm guessing things will step up a notch, with catching up to be done after yesterday. So I get to pick a judge to spend alone time with. I'm sure everyone knows who I'll pick; maybe I'll surprise a few people and not be so obvious.. ah, who am I kidding? You know I'm picking Darveses! I'm looking forward to seeing what tonight has to offer, as well as wearing my new outfit!

He closes the terminal as Wamp pokes his head round the doorway. "Are you getting out of that tub anytime soon?" he laughs. "Don't want to be late tonight, and it would appear I have some picture copies to make..". "Coming" says David, hauling himself out of the tub and heading indoors, towelling himself dry as he walks.

Lord Wamphyri is smiling as he browses the feed on his terminal. "I'm glad my picture was appreciated" he thinks to himself, grinning. Scrolling down further, he notes the latest challenge announcement from Revan Neferis and begins to enter a reply.

After the light relief of yesterdays small challenge we're now getting back to the task at hand. I will approach this next challenge carefully; I've made some mistakes through misjudgements and I don't intend to repeat them. I have a clear path in my head and I know exactly what I wish to do, and which judge will be my choice in this matter: The Lady Neferis herself.

Closing the terminal, he moves to the balcony door and pokes his head out in time to see David closing his own terminal. "Are you getting out of that tub anytime soon?" he asks, laughing.

Nausea sits on the side of her bed, a dry towel wrapped around her midriff. Seemingly momentarily thoughtful, she picks up her datapad, once more browsing to the IGS...

The last time I had to make a choice for a challenge, it did not turn out how I had hoped. This time, I aim not to repeat the mistake.

So many things have happened since I put myself forward for this competition. Many things are different, unexpected...

New.

So. I have to pick a Judge for tonight....

She glances at the two pieces of card sat on her side table, a slight smile playing across her lips.

And I choose Lady Neferis. Time to see how this will continue...

I want to really get something out of this evening - even if it ends up being my last as a contestant - so the choice is pretty clear to me, really.

Of the judges I've had the opportunity to speak to so far, it's been pretty clear to me that my conversations with Lady Neferis have been the most interesting and thought-provoking; and so, I am certain that my time for this challenge would be best spent speaking with her.

Dream for once didn't return to the resort to spend the night, she needed no distractions, no breathtaking view which makes her mind wander, she sat in her office, her thoughts focused on her recent exchanges with the Sovereign.

She lit up a cigarette, leaning back on her chair, her feet on her desk, closing her eyes. Thinking :
I have to open my heart as I explain what I think of the Sovereign and of our conversation. She took a deep breath clearing her thoughts then grabbed her data-pad and started keying:

Revan Neferis, Sani Sabik Sovereign, a Lady of influence and perfection, i could write so many compliments and mark of respect it would overflow the IGS. But what about my point of view? The first woman I met who had my instant respect, one look at her, one glimpse even, her presence talks for everything. I felt something i never felt before, how could I even describe it? Passion, temptation, admiration, respect... She made my feline instinct explode and take over myself, revealing who I truly were, who I were turning into. A encounter like that happens once in a lifetime, I savored every single second of it.
Yet she does have a dark side, I've heard about that too, but it never scared me, who doesn't have one? Only fools chose to hide their darkness and lie to their true selves. You just need to learn how to face it and deal with it. I have a lot of training in this matter.
The Sovereign is smart, one of the smartest woman I have crossed path, offering me a Nyx to leave and turn around. *grins, 'so smart' thought Dream as typing those words* Turning down a Nyx might have been foolish so would people say or so I'd have my minute of glory, but I don't care what people think, I know why I did it and it was to be true to myself, my new self should I say, the one I discovered entering Lady Neferis's world. It's all or nothing for me, a Nyx isn't all, what I could find in the future is way more.

She took a slight break and poured herself a glass of wine, pacing around in her office, dreading to type the following, her past, her true past, the one she never told. The one she made every effort to forget. But the past that was still haunting her...

Tonight's conversation even though too short to my taste brought back some hidden scars the moment Lady Neferis asked my name. Jenna Pike ...

She stopped typing as tears filled her eyes, surprised by this sudden emotion, she throw her glass which shattered against the wall breaking the silence of the room. After composing herself quickly she resumed her typing

Jenna Pike could have been happy if it wasn't for her sister. She took everything, their parents and their love and their friends. She used her beauty to go through life, she ended up forgetting her values and her brain, and ended up so bad I refuse to see her again, a mere shell of her past glory, a faded beauty marked with the disease and drugs. At least that's what she looked like at our parents burial. They died because of her, of her selfishness. I looked at her, and promised me to always use my senses, my guts, my brain to do every single thing in life. I signed up to become a capsuleer, erasing the past, getting a new identity, a new start. Yet the scars were deep but the will of finding my place was stronger.

I then met Outlaw Jenner who gave me a chance to enter the world with new perspectives.

Dream then stopped abruptly at the view of her employer's name. Yet it's all or nothing she muttered.
I've been asked many things during this event, this one isn't a exception, so be it.

She closed her data-pad, entered her pod and undocked in her Dominix...

The one thing that can never be conquered in a woman is her love, for in her love resides its own inviolable judgment. It is from that judgment that are born the words that may sound as her command. Any words prior to that are but mere clashing and actions that cannot be concluded. Let the wise seek to draw conclusions as to nature itself.

I have seen in Lady Neferis the form of judgment. In myself I have seen the weak strivings for power. I see in the body of the Sani Sabik her form (for she is of all these forms and they of her). I see the command of any of these forms, at any level, to reside only in the legitimacy granted by her judgment. Thus flows the true power of the Sabik, both from her and from that within ourselves which may seek to be judged worthy by her.

This I have seen and, perhaps failing, have learned.

I submit humbly to the judgment to follow.

Nausea sits in her Resort bedroom, sitting straight on the edge of a pair of leather sofas, sandwiching a glass coffee table upon which sits a pair of leather cases. One case lies open, it's top flipped to reveal the plush interior, and a void where something once sat.

She herself is toying idly with what looks like a small combat-knife, Caldari Navy issue, a relic from another life. There is a sigh, a shake of the head, before she sets the knife down carefully on the table, retrieving a wine glass and taking a quick sip of the strong liquid within. A moment later, she's pulled out her data pad, calling up the IGS feed.


I've been a capsuleer for over 7 years now. Many things seen, many stories heard, many things done. Over time things dull, become normal, mundane, standard.

Boring.

I've heard it said that applying to this contest was 'not me'. That succeding in qualifing in the first place was 'lucky', a surprise. I wanted to take a chance, see what would happen, take the ride as far is it would go. Another roll of the dice to see how they would fall.
I'd heard many stories of Revan Neferis before now. Over the 7 years, who wouldn't have? I had naturally assumed them to be wrong, but with a grain of truth at their heart; an exaggeration that had gone long in the telling.

I realised by day one at the resort, that almost all of them are probably true. She has a certain prescence that seems to command all give her their respect, one way or another. The kind of person that, when they enter the room, everything slowly starts to move around them, as if naturally falling into line. She walks with Temptation and Passion by her side. And then, there is the fact that nothing involving her, is ever as it seems. That even if you've looked between the lines at what lies beneath, there is another layer or two blocking your sight from the core. Granted, I had gathered some of this before I even signed up, but it was still surprising to be so...surprised at times, as to what would develop.

Genuine surprise has eluded me for some time now...

I started examining myself after this. Possibly just as a way to get used to trying to see through the various twists and turns of the challenges that would be ahead, I don't really know. I even surprised myself by confessing what I found to the Lady; what I feared, wanted, hoped to accomplish... things I thought I had gotten rid of some time ago. It was...distressing to confront them, but she comforted me, told me that such a heartfelt confession would not go ignored.

The days that passed after that, I started to learn more...risk more... see how her words applied; that there could be moments of genuine excitement and feeling again. Many of the things I had thought I believed, I believed only up until a point; with only a couple of exceptions, I was not fully there. So I tried to go all-in. I tried something new with Lady Evangeline, albeit briefly, that left me thinking for quite some time... and then the disappointment that followed in the challenge soon afterwards showed that these feelings too, are still there.

Two days ago was the turning point... I listened, learned, began to understand that perhaps this...random gamble was less random than I had thought - that there was a purpose to me being there. Something 'clicked' at that point, and a sudden feeling that i'd been on this path all along, if only I could just see it, took hold. With that realisation... at the event in the evening, I finally cut loose. Gave in. Surrendered to it all to see what would happen... and what happened has truely blown me away. It'l never be forgotten... and has left it's mark on me. I tried at the time to voice what I had found to the Lady, but I had been too...distracted and overwhelmed to frame the words properly.

Which leads me to tonight...

I sought out Lady Revan, and told her what I had found, what I had learnt..what I really wanted. I'd mentioned earlier today, about a former friend of mine who used to say “ To get what you dream of, you must make one truely hard decision, and an important sacrifice”. I have made the decision, and there is no turning back...

It was strange, hearing my real name from her so often... almost no-one knows it now, and even those that do like Kyoko only use it occasionally. Sometimes I would forget it even was my name. A name that has caused enough pain for one of the few links back to whom I was as it is.

That ends now.

My name is Nadia Arath. To those who wish to weaponise it... I know who I am now. What I am. What I am supposed to be.

I have dived into the Abyss. Let us see if I can learn to fly...

Tonight i walked the stone pathways of a most serene garden as i conpemplated the meaning of war and rule. The question most forfront in my mind,how does one transend war? I have been unable to answer this question for some time now, so when given the chance i put this question to Koronakesh seeking wisdom and guidence. As we explored this avenue of thought together many things became clear to me. The will to fight is simpley not enough, not for an immortal, and certainly not for a leader of men. No matter how addictave the kill is, a man needs more, a man needs a cause, without this we are simply agents of chaos,and while chaos certainly serves a cause we must never allow it to rule us. Slaves are made in such ways. So i have only this to say to those who would challenge me and mine. You cannot win, i will never break, i will never bow or surrender. Because my cause will always be greater then your's
