Who could travel much faster than light,

In a relative way,
And came back the previous night."

Okay, someone's been dipping into the qat again...


Also, damn. Aiden's a bit of a bastard, isn't he?

Well... she sorta gave him permission to do whatever he wants with her, but I don't think the police would be ok with the circumstances here...

Several days hence, Aiden will receive a package by post. That package will be a large crate, well bolted shut. As soon as Aiden slices through the crate, he will see a large, pyramid-shaped metallic helmet. Because he deserves it.

I think I see where is going...
'A goddess rewards a mortal with torrid oral sex on the stairs of the city's greatest manse. In Lookshy its a legend that's lasted generations; in Great Forks its Tuesday"

"The so called "Mouth of Peace" is so heavily mind controlled and geased by her handlers its said that if you look at her through essence sight you can actually see fine incorporal threads trailing off her limbs into the ether or when she's really under tight control a phantom image of Kekjak's arm actually jammed up her anus. Those are the times when she seems most happy."

Well, he was cunning enough to entrap that goddess with the Oathing.
Do not confuse the inexcusable for the unforgivable. If a crime can be excused, then there was nothing to forgive in the first place. It is only when a crime is inexcusable that forgiveness is even an issue. And at that point, forgive. Forgive, if only because it sets you free. Bitterness never produced anything sweet.

I'm... really getting to disliking Aiden. I mean, at first his antics were amusing, even with the screwing over (any meaning you want) of the goddess... but this...

I'm fairly sure its been said before, but it was stuff like this that made the Usurption seem like a good idea...

Not that, as a society, the DBs are innocent by any means, hell no. It's just that he throws all semblance of morality out the window and still is supposedly trying to be a hero. The only way he ever does do heroic stuff is coincidental to him following his libido and/or greed, and he only notices (and then takes credit for) it when someone else points it out.

I'm really looking forward to his beat-down.

Remember when Aiden said he was at least better than the Ancient Greek heroes, morally? Well, it's starting to look like the Sack of Troy, but suddenly Agammemnon can use psychic roofies.

Agammemnon would likely never have bothered in the first place.

Interesting...

But I notice no 'oathing'... Aiden... you should know better... use your eclipsey POWER!

By the by... what IS inside Aiden's Head Whammy combo, anyhow?

I would put even money on Aiden for he possesses HGD and RIPOSE! (now with HGD and Super Excellencies added in to boost the counterattack).

Well... technically Solar social charms aren't that bad. I mean, they usually at least don't require the target to be mentally scarred for the rest of their lives and so forth, unlike practically all higher level Abyssal charms.

Of course I have no doubt inflicting permanent mental damage falls into "stuntable" territory, and Aiden probably has a specialty or three in it.

Nevermind about the requirements of the charm, but think what having one's mind altered without consent and without regard for one's own free will must be like. And then having to live with a mind altered in such a way.

The act could horrendous but the victim might not even be aware of it all once its done. If you're properly conditioned or more so brainwashed by mundane means your convinced your "agreed" to it. Your thoughts process has been changed. Now if you get into magic and super powers well, you coud be changed entirely. That Immaculate woman, for example, might feel she wants to be Aiden's play thing. Its she's concerned its perfectly right to feel that way, she'll even fight to resist being changed back to 'normal" or "freed" because from her perspective that's a harmful change now. Depending on the degree of alteration that could be very disturbing to outsiders

If you want to get really paranoid think about this if someone did alter your mind and memories you might NEVER know. There is no objective way of proving anything you think, feel or even perceive is real...

Trippy...

I'm pretty sure that's the "message" of the comic. :wink:

Yeah, Adien has definitely shot right past flawed hero, through Anti Hero and come out the other side in villain territory at this point. Again, something of the point I think. Not my cup of boiled leaf juice to game but entertaining to read.

To be fair, he is a relatively minor one compared to say. . . Lyta. Now that is a Solar who should never have Social Charms.

How is that different from The Immaculate Texts? The Dynasts are basicly spoonfed lies from birth. One could say they "chose" to believe, but that choice was rigged.

Well... Memory Reweaving Performance WOULD allow you to rewrite someone's memories WITH a STORY no less.

And if you say tell a story of how so-so has been thinking on things in private, there is no actual evidence that this didn't happen... you're so not going to break free of the mind-reshaping.
