Certainly.
Once we're done here, I'll see to it that you have means to stay in touch.

Now, I have a phone call I need to take, so...

Demon:
Pardon, but I really do need to focus on this call.
Just... discuss amongst yourselves. I'm sure one of you remembers.

Demon:
*blip*

Goethe? I think we're just about done here.
Is the petitioner from Theia still on the line?


Goethe(?):
Yeah, yeah. Been keeping him worked up, like you said to.


Demon:
Good. When you're ready, patch them through to me.

Ah, at last. I greet you, brave mortal.

Your heart's most desperate plea has echoed down into the depths of Hell.
And it is I, the Demon Queen Marlowe, who heard your cry, and answered.
I, the Twice-Betrayed. Eternal Warden of the Sea of Lost Souls.
And I come, bringing an offer of True Solace for your grief...

If, of course, you are prepared to pay our price in return... ahahaha!

...:
O-of course. I know the price. I'd pay anything!
Just, please. Save my little Cassowary...


Marlowe:
Ohoho.... mortals are always so eager to offer anything...

But do you even know what you have yet to lose?
Just what I could choose to take in recompense?
Anything, fuhuhuh... what a foolish offer.


...:
Maybe it is foolish. O-or...
Or maybe a Demon like you just can't understand a father's love.

(04-17-2018, 06:18 PM)Arcanuse Wrote: Hrrrmgh.
We made oath, true.
But we didn't make oath.
Oath made by one-of-many, not many ones.

(04-17-2018, 03:41 PM)Fellow Wrote: Err, just how many people know about that? It's gonna be very easy to take us hostage with this knowledge.

> oath between me you and fate ok

...:
A-are you still there?


Marlowe:
Ah, but of course. A father's love.

I suppose you're willing to do whatever we ask of you, then?
Lie for us. Steal for us... Kill for us even?
Consign yourself forever to our servitude...


...:
W-what!
That's... not what the other Demon said this price would be...

(04-17-2018, 03:41 PM)Fellow Wrote: Also, you're telling me that any other demon this guy may pettition would at best steal the girl's soul and pretend they didn't? What makes you special?

Marlowe:
As I said, we are a philanthropic organization.
I never said any other Demon would steal a Soul.
But desperate mortals make foolish decisions.
And other Demons are just that. Other. Different.

Besides, making generalizations about a group is rude.

...:
Wh-huh? I'm... sorry? I didn't mean to be rude...

...:
Wait, did you just say something about being a philanthropist?


Marlowe:
O-of course! Did you think all Demons were the same?
Hahaha... foolish Mortals. Haha.


...:
But you're... didn't you just say something about eternal servitude?
The Demon who said he was your underling... he never said anything about that.
And then you said something about desperate mortals and...


Marlowe:
I was just... I was illustrating a point of course.
You... offered me anything. I just... that was stupid.

So don't do that.


...:
O-okay?

Hey, is this "advice on dealing with Demons" stuff part of that Philanthopy thing or...

Marlowe:
Cease your prattle!

Never mind all that. You and I have an agreement to discuss.
A contract. You do know what that means, don't you?


...:
Y-yes, I do.

(04-17-2018, 01:58 PM)Wessolf27 Wrote: >Very well... I shall be the little one's mender, and guardian if I need to.

Marlowe:
And you understand the terms of our contract?

Not... not the eternal servitude thing.
What the other Demon said earlier.


...:
I... Yeah. I know what you need in return.

I offer it freely.

Marlowe:
And you understand the penalty for failure to uphold this?

I... I do.

But I swear if there's some catch to this you've "technically" informed me about, so help me I will be personally responsible for all subconscious desires to attempt to consume random objects and do sick dodge rolls down corridors. You and your cool demon ears have been warned.

...:
Just, please. My daughter. She's so sick.
I've tried Doctors and Shamans and... everything.
No one can do anything for her. You're my only hope.


Marlowe:
Of course.


...:
And you promise you won't harm her?
No trickery? No funny business?

(04-17-2018, 06:18 PM)Arcanuse Wrote: this one am accept oath anywayses.
this one swear to do-inks no harm of permanence.
Will try to healings of tiny one.

Marlowe:
I cannot promise her condition won't have a lasting impact.
But I will use all power at my disposal to restore her as fully as possible.

And I will do her no harm.


...:
Alright.


Marlowe:
Excellent. Then, are we agreed?


...:

So, Mr. Flynn... shall we form this Contract?

Yes. Let's have it done.

Marlowe:
Excellent. The Contract is struck.
We'll be in touch shortly.

*blip*

Ughhhhhhhh...

Goethe? Are you still on the line?
Just... tell Bennet to send the Eidolon across.
We've got ourselves a deal.


Goethe:
Will do, boss. Awesome work, by the way!
Love that Queen spiel every time. And can I just say?
That recovery after the bit you flubbed was...

Marlowe:
*blip*

...and you, little Eidolon. We'll be in touch soon, as well.
Do remember our agreement, once you make it over there.

And, of course, best wishes with your new start on Theia.

Ta ta, for now.
