apocalypse
is what we need
to sharpen the minds dull indeed.

...Sad, but true.
[Q] uiet.: Insideqiew on November 24th, 2007 05:58 pm (UTC)
Yes.

...?

Are you okay, Q?
[Q] uiet.: defragmentationqiew on November 24th, 2007 05:04 pm (UTC)
I am.
watch_from_afar: thoughtfulwatch_from_afar on November 24th, 2007 05:21 pm (UTC)
O-okay...

How have you been lately? I haven't heard from you in a while.
[Q] uiet.: biohazardqiew on November 24th, 2007 05:22 pm (UTC)
Have been.
Are you fine?
watch_from_afar: vague smilewatch_from_afar on November 24th, 2007 05:37 pm (UTC)
Yes, I'm fine :)

I'm just worried because I usually don't even see you come out of your room. If you need anything, I can bring it up for you. Okay?
[Q] uiet.: I am over hereqiew on November 24th, 2007 05:43 pm (UTC)
Okay thats good.

Is Q going to cause this apocalypse?
[Q] uiet.: defragmentationqiew on November 24th, 2007 05:58 pm (UTC)
Would V invite it?
v_illainyv_illainy on November 24th, 2007 06:38 pm (UTC)
Possibly.

You're always very interesting, Q. I half-expected this to be another riddle and had been disappointed to see that it wasn't... but your response to V made it a perfect riddle.

Do come out of your room more often. There is a scent which I think may be yours in the halls on occasion, usually in the early morning when only the smells of the night would be lingering.
[Q] uiet.: I am over hereqiew on November 24th, 2007 07:13 pm (UTC)
I am the black child of a white father;
A wingless bird, flying even to the clouds of heaven.
I give birth to tears of mourning in pupils that meet me,
and at once on my birth I am dissolved into air.

Hm... smoke? That vaporous sting of something that something that carries such a distinctive scent... very clever. It makes me feel like it is very personally for me, thank you Q.

If you want to avoid being seen in the halls I understand. But I would like the opportunity to say hello when you next emerge.
[Q] uiet.: Outward Inverse Obscurityqiew on November 24th, 2007 07:44 pm (UTC)
Yes smoke. ...

( Give me a ring on AIM if you want to plot something. Nice character choice by the way. )
z_aviel on November 24th, 2007 06:50 pm (UTC)
Well that's not a dour outlook.
[Q] uiet.: defragmentationqiew on November 24th, 2007 07:15 pm (UTC)
No, it is not.
z_aviel on November 24th, 2007 07:22 pm (UTC)
Suppose so.
K: Oh!k_ings on November 24th, 2007 07:02 pm (UTC)
..If there was an apocalypse, there wouldn't be any reason to have a sharp mind, though.
[Q] uiet.: Insideqiew on November 24th, 2007 07:09 pm (UTC)
What is apocalypse?
K: Oh!k_ings on November 24th, 2007 07:10 pm (UTC)
The end of everything?
[Q] uiet.: Insideqiew on November 24th, 2007 07:14 pm (UTC)
Incorrect.
K: Hmmmk_ings on November 24th, 2007 07:23 pm (UTC)
What is it then?
[Q] uiet.: withinqiew on November 24th, 2007 07:25 pm (UTC)
Good question.
Kk_ings on November 24th, 2007 08:03 pm (UTC)
What do you think it is?
[Q] uiet.: defragmentationqiew on November 24th, 2007 08:11 pm (UTC)
Words have many meanings for many reasons.

I think many things within and without.
z_aviel on November 24th, 2007 07:50 pm (UTC)
It actually means "the lifting of the veil" in Greek, roughly.
Kk_ings on November 24th, 2007 08:03 pm (UTC)
Ah, well, if you read it that way, I guess it makes more sense. If you lift the veil and what's behind it is something truthful, then it would make your mind sharper.

It doesn't sound like it has anything to do with the end of the world now, haha.
z_aviel on November 24th, 2007 08:08 pm (UTC)
Apocalypse came to mean the end of the world because of the idea of the Second Coming, really.
[Q] uiet.: Outward Inverse Obscurityqiew on November 24th, 2007 08:11 pm (UTC)
but it never ends. After the storm.
z_aviel on November 24th, 2007 08:13 pm (UTC)
I suppose so. There's always something beyond the Gate.
After Always: vaguely interested.a_fter on November 24th, 2007 09:52 pm (UTC)
What sense of 'apocalypse' do you mean?
[Q] uiet.: I am over hereqiew on November 24th, 2007 09:58 pm (UTC)
Good question.
After Always: vaguely interested.a_fter on November 24th, 2007 10:10 pm (UTC)
The end of the world could easily 'sharpen dull minds', as you choose to put it, and there are many images of an end leading to a reinvigoration.

But then again, there's also the sense of a revelation, and that could easily 'sharpen dull minds'. The question then is what information you want revealed - what veil you want lifted.
[Q] uiet.: Outward Inverse Obscurityqiew on November 24th, 2007 10:20 pm (UTC)
Are you still standing?
After Always: a bit surprised.a_fter on November 24th, 2007 10:21 pm (UTC)
...What?

((OOC: And now A is just confused.))
[Q] uiet.: I am dissimilatedqiew on November 24th, 2007 10:23 pm (UTC)
After.

(( Q is good at causing that. ))
After Always: a bit surprised.a_fter on November 24th, 2007 10:27 pm (UTC)
...After the apocalypse, am I still standing? Is that what you're saying?
[Q] uiet.: defragmentationqiew on November 24th, 2007 10:38 pm (UTC)
Yes.
After Always: vaguely interested.a_fter on November 24th, 2007 10:39 pm (UTC)
I certainly hope I will be.
Miss C: hmm?/curiouscerastae on November 25th, 2007 01:35 am (UTC)
Good God, if we had a radioactive one, zombies would most likely rise from graves! We'd see old loved ones long since past!

Mental apocalypse, however, is very interesting indeed. Sometimes you need to flush out the system and delete all space to start anew, keeping only the knowledge of what you gained in previous mindsets and activities and such things prior to the refreshing, so you will know from experience if, indeed, the world is either round or flat.
[Q] uiet.: inverse reverseqiew on November 25th, 2007 02:13 am (UTC)
Frankenstein. Have you tested
this theory. Radioactivity.
Miss C: tee!cerastae on November 25th, 2007 02:15 am (UTC)
Mary Shelley was a doll.

Alas, I think it's illegal to try raising the dead using radioactive substances. But maybe one day, I shall try. I certainly have the manical laughter for it. Maybe you can be my darling assistant Igor?

"If you don't create change, change will create you." I thought of this reading your entry, haha. [-3]
[Q] uiet.: Insideqiew on November 25th, 2007 02:10 am (UTC)
Comment 42.

Yes. I think so.
Than you lose.
