othersdie: as fragile as a butterfly in May (Anxious: Anywhere but up)

This isn't over.

The deities didn't create rules--they enforced them. Whoever or whatever is above them is, presumably, still there. The only thing that this revolution has changed is who oversees us. We're not free. Our problems aren't gone.

We can't be sure that we'll be better off. What do we know about the people who have replaced the deities? Do we know where they came from? What they truly want? Now that they control whatever power the deities had, what are they going to do with it? They've made promises, but what have they done for us? Were they any more forgiving or any less ruthless than the deities during the fighting?

Nothing gets better in the City. Maybe this time will be an exception, but I see no reason to hope for much. We'll still lose people we come to care about. We'll still be at the mercy of our captors, even if they aren't the ones we're used to.

Be careful. Don't hesitate to contact the police if there's trouble.

I am! Let us call for wine, we have ancestors to honour. Have you any?

I have my share for you, if you do not.

Hey, the name is Deacon.

You're making a lot of sense here. This is the start of something good, something that we can make together. Keeping perspective is real, real important but if we don't celebrate and be uplifted where we can be then--then I don't know.

How long would you say long is?

I feel good that this is the start of something.

Merely agreeing with the questioning of them.

Yeah, I doubt it'll be different even if the people who have replaced them say otherwise.

Yeah, that part never changes.

I've been wondering what they think of all this. The ones-- the other ones. Bigger than the Deities.

I'd be interested to hear from her, especially.

I know Rosella bakes for him sometimes, I don't know if she has this year.

Sensible. It's nice to see someone hasn't lost their head yet.

[personal profile] lawbender 2013-07-03 01:36 am (UTC)(link)
I haven't really spoken to them. They seem to be doing their best to cultivate favor. It's almost more disconcerting than being mostly ignored.

I agree with you in full. Even if the crown has been usurped- metaphorically speaking- the power to back said crown is not beholden to the victors. And even if it was, would they know how to use it.

Power corrupting and all?

I should think if they intended any sort of actual change, there would be a reversal of those arriving by now at least.
