♕ |[110]| But maybe you're thinking in bigger terms, one loss leading to all the others,

[VOICE]

I have to admit this door... makes me nervous. I know, that's selfish of me, because there are a lot of people here who want to go home and they don't deserve to be stuck, but I love living in the City. If everyone goes... well, I just worry. There are people who don't have anywhere else to go.

[People like him, but he doesn't want to say so. It's probably obvious, anyway.]

But--

[He tries to cheer his tone up a bit. It sounds a little forced, at first.]

I always like visitors, I'm glad you were able to come. Is there-- anyone here from home?

[He always kind of hopes. But he's happy to see anyone who wants to see him.]




[ooc; one final hurrah. please don't tell him he's not real; please no other neils. otherwise, go nuts, backdate until the end of days.]

I don't know if I really count as being from home, but I'm kind of everywhere so I guess it qualifies, right?

Hi, Neil.

The same as ever! That's the thing about being the inevitable cessation of all things--in the grand scheme of things, you don't really change too much. I mean, unless you decide to change, which I guess I do sometimes. It'd be boring to spend the entirety of existence being exactly the same.

Also I got a haircut.

You're worried about that door thing, huh?

Apparently godlike. I went home and became the demiurge or something like that, I don't know. It's mystical and weird. Oddly magical reality-changing powers don't come with the ability to break into this joint without an invitation.

[ It takes a while to get her footing, so to speak, but she hears his broadcast in real-time, and once she has her hands on a device, she simply hopes she hasn't missed him. Nothing seems right, not quite as far as what she might say here. Though it has been decades she hasn't aged in appearance, but even all that time hasn't shaken certain memories: a life for someone who seemed to deserve it. A life for someone who, maybe more than that, they had thought should have it. Cosmic agreement or no. She doesn't mean to sigh but some of it comes out anyway. ]

It isn't selfish. It would be selfish to keep others here for your own sake.

[ She pauses, her tone in that not really condemning so much as honest. ]

If you simply don't want to go, though. That is not selfishness.

[ What she doesn't say:

I'm sorry.

She wishes all her living could tell her where the dead go. How they fare.

If they can be happy. If 'nowhere' could be somewhere after all.

But she can't say, so she doesn't.

It's hard to tell. [ She admits this based on the few things she knows -- a few more things than she did the last time they spoke, and perhaps a few more after that -- and pauses a while. ] But neither of those -- the wishing or the wanting -- is the same as forcing them to stay.

[ At the question, she smiles. It doesn't read very true to look at her, but her heart feels it: alive, remembered, honored. ] Yes.

I would ask you how you have been but things seem to be coming to a head.

Is Todd still here as well?

[ She figures 'yes', but wants to hear it from him. Using the time she has is at least something she has gotten the hang of in more human ways. Mortal ways. Mortal immortal. ]

You're not nervous about doors. You're nervous about what's behind them.
