[There is a short, clearly accidental clip that takes place inside Jezebel's laboratory. On one of the tmetal tables sits a young woman wearing a simple robe, staring blankly ahead at Jezebel and a tall figure standing with him. You might recognize the girl; she was once the corpse that Jezebel was sewing together.

She steps onto the floor from the table, standing straight and walking a few steps, her face expressionless. With a small cry, the figure near Jezebel rushes forward and embraces her, cooing and muttering endearments at her while stroking her hair. The girl doesn't seem to react. And all the while, Jezebel stands to the side, taking notes.]

[The text is clearly not written for the community's sake; it's Jezebel's notes, scrawled haphazardly across the page.]

M has awoken five minutes after ritual. Motor and verbal skills are excellent, no signs of physical deterioration or remaining injuries.

Shows signs of amnesia -- did not recognize J. Showing complete lack of emotion. Overlooked brain damage? Result of trauma from death/betrayal? Investigate.

Meeting with CM tomorrow. Bring notes.

[And then, in even sloppier handwriting than the rest, is a small note that was clearly written long after the rest in the midst of excitement]

M is showing signs of clairvoyance.

Clairevoyance? How fascinating.

I'm rather pleased. The dolls have always had rather unusual capabilities, but Meridiana's are strong and clear, it seems.

Have you seen signs of clairvoyance before?

Not from the dolls, but they've had other supernatural powers upon being reborn.

We had one...our longest-lasting one to date, he had such strength in his hands that he could kill with a simple strike or squeeze to the throat. It made his care incredibly difficult for a time.

Ahh... superhuman strength seems to be common with things of this nature, strangely enough.

Date: 2010-10-11 04:13 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] delilahs-reaper.livejournal.com
Perhaps so. You have experience with such a thing?

Personal experience, you might say.

Might I ask what you mean?

Date: 2010-10-11 03:13 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] visestvita.livejournal.com
I mean that this happened to me. Different methods from yours, of course, as I have already mentioned; but I returned from the very brink, indeed beyond the brink of death, stronger than before.

Date: 2010-10-13 09:00 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] delilahs-reaper.livejournal.com
I see. How were you brought back?

Date: 2010-10-14 01:31 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] visestvita.livejournal.com
A virus was given to me, probably more effective than any could have hoped.

Date: 2010-10-14 02:08 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] delilahs-reaper.livejournal.com
A virus that restored you to life? Interesting.

Date: 2010-10-14 02:27 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] visestvita.livejournal.com
Indeed. It's a variation on a virus that has been in development for years but that particular virus has only ever succeeded in creating the sort of stereotypical mindless zombies everyone knows.

Date: 2010-10-14 04:56 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] delilahs-reaper.livejournal.com
I see. Are there many others like yourself, brought back from the brink with this new virus?

Date: 2010-10-14 01:51 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] delilahs-reaper.livejournal.com
By your tense, I take it they did not last as you did?

Date: 2010-10-14 02:01 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] visestvita.livejournal.com
No. I believe some either succumbed to it or were killed by other means. Most, at least, I am not certain.

How did you not succumb?

Date: 2010-10-15 05:05 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] visestvita.livejournal.com
By being stronger and smarter about it, for a start. The success rate is not particularly high. As far as I know, I am the only true success.

From: [identity profile] promiseunbroken.livejournal.com
Looks like you did it. And you're no longer bleeding all over the place either, that's lucky.

Date: 2010-10-07 01:53 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] delilahs-reaper.livejournal.com
The bleeding ended once the virus had run its course, thankfully. Which was rather convenient, or else I would never have been able to finish this experiment.

Date: 2010-10-08 02:32 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] promiseunbroken.livejournal.com
I imagine so, without eyes and all. From those notes you were more successful than you thought you'd be.

From: [identity profile] delilahs-reaper.livejournal.com
The dolls have shown powers before, but I admit that I am rather pleased that Meridiana is showing hers so quickly. They seem quite strong.

Did your contractor know this would happen?

Date: 2010-10-11 02:40 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] delilahs-reaper.livejournal.com
I did inform them that this was a possibility. They didn't seem to be overly concerned.

I should start calling you Dr. Frankenstein. But he at least had good intentions.

Date: 2010-10-10 01:22 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] delilahs-reaper.livejournal.com
There is already a Dr. Stein in the community, too much similarity in names will just cause confusion.

Date: 2010-10-10 02:22 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] clockmaster.livejournal.com
Don't worry, I'm sure I can tell you two apart.

Date: 2010-10-11 03:04 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] delilahs-reaper.livejournal.com
Be that as it may, my similarities with the original Frankenstein are few. For starters, he had no idea what he'd done, while I am more than aware.

That only makes you more disgusting.

From: [identity profile] delilahs-reaper.livejournal.com
It's disgusting to return to life what was once dead?

Date: 2010-10-12 02:04 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] clockmaster.livejournal.com
It's unnatural and I'm sure you do it for selfish reasons.

Date: 2010-10-13 05:05 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] delilahs-reaper.livejournal.com
All medicine is unnatural. It interferes with the pattern of disease and then dying, but I doubt you would consider those to be sins.

I do it for the sake of discovery and for Delilah.

Date: 2010-10-13 10:49 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] clockmaster.livejournal.com
If you were dying, wouldn't you trust medicine to help you? or woudl you die for the sake of not interfering with the natural process of live and death.

How nice of you.

Date: 2010-10-14 12:07 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] delilahs-reaper.livejournal.com
That's my entire point. You call what I do unnatural, but that is what all medicine does. It interferes with the natural process of illness and death.

I am a loyal servant always.

Date: 2010-10-14 09:43 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] clockmaster.livejournal.com
You didn't answer my question.

Date: 2010-10-15 04:32 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] delilahs-reaper.livejournal.com
Using medicine to interfere with the process of death is logical, even if unnatural. Just as how resurrection is no more a sin than medicine, even if it unnaturally postpones death.

Date: 2010-10-15 03:09 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] clockmaster.livejournal.com
Oh, now medicinal is the logical answer, and that's why you would use it to save yourself. You are as much as an hypocrite as everyone else.

Date: 2010-10-15 04:30 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] delilahs-reaper.livejournal.com
I think you've lost sight of how this conversation began. I am advocating bringing the dead back because it is like medicine in its ability to combat death. Nowhere have I argued that using medicine is wrong. Hence, no hypocrisy.

Date: 2010-10-15 05:55 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] clockmaster.livejournal.com
I'm aware of what we were discussing, but you always claim that we do unnatural things and then you do the same. Knowing you, it's easy to see that you wouldn't bring the death back if the wasn't a selfish reason behind.

Date: 2010-10-15 09:06 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] delilahs-reaper.livejournal.com
You're assuming I meant that 'unnatural' meant the same thing as 'wrong'. On the contrary, I advocate both medicine and resurrection because they are unnatural.

Date: 2010-10-16 01:31 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] clockmaster.livejournal.com
You sure make it sounds like that most of the time.

It's not my fault if you twist and misunderstand my words.
