Well, it seems I may have to burn down yet another laboratory of mine. This'll be the second time this month.

It's not like I was even the one who killed those girls, but oh well.

Who killed them?

A client of mine. He had asked me to hypnotize his daughter and some of her friends, but he appears to have decided to pick them off afterwards.

Do you need me for anything?

For the actual burning, yes. Not until I've removed some things from there, though.

Yes, okay. I'll be in my room if you need me.

Unless you're in danger? Are they coming to arrest you?

As far as I can tell, not at this moment. But I imagine soon they will come looking.

Oh, I...maybe I should come there, then. I don't want anything to happen to you.

I thought I needed to be alone, but I guess it doesn't matter if you need my help.

Yes, it's fine. It won't be much longer, anyhow.

What happened?

All right, then.

Nothing happened, really.

It's not--

I just spoke with someone from my world, that's all.

He said that my Tovaras forgave me, and that I have a good heart.

Ion Fortuna, my...childhood friend. My foster brother. I betrayed him and tried to kill him.

But he still forgave you? That's good, then.

...you don't seem so very horrible. Admittedly, however, I am not the best person to judge.

That man said that he understood, that he'd betrayed someone he loved before, too, and that he didn't think I was that horrible.

I guess I just need to think about it.

Do you ever regret anything you do, Jezebel?

Mmm, that must be nice. But I wonder if it's really true.

If you were like me, then you would be a horrible person.

At least take solace in that your regret shows you still have decency.

It'd at least be easier that way.

Doesn't it bother you to think you're a horrible person?

No. I enjoy my work, but to pretend that what I do for a living makes me anything less than terrible would be delusional.

Most people try to justify what they do, even if they're terrible. I know I did.

From: [identity profile] delilahs-reaper.livejournal.com
I don't. There would be no way to justify the things I've done. I know what I am and what crimes I've committed, but I don't care.

If there's no justification, why do you do it?

[Locked]

From: [identity profile] delilahs-reaper.livejournal.com
Because I want to or because I'm ordered to. I don't care if there's no justification for what I do.

In any event, I would say that you aren't so very terrible. Or that you don't give off that impression. Perhaps your friend thought likewise.

I did try to destroy an entire city and start a war between the two most powerful Empires in the world.

Ion is too soft. He always has been. Even...even if he forgave me, that doesn't mean I deserve it.

I was tricked into believing that it was best for my people. And then...I was angry and stubborn, and refused to see that I was wrong.

Maybe.

So you thought you were doing what was best for your people...that doesn't sound so very terrible.

I guess so. It's not so much that I feel I must be terrible, I suppose, but that I must be ridiculously stupid to have been so taken in.

Everyone can be misled with the right kind of persuasion. I can't say if yours was egregious, but expert manipulators can be rather cunning in luring in believers, especially if you thought it was for such a cause as yours.

I guess so.

Are you done with all of your preparations? I suppose I feel better, now, if you still need me.

It's all finished. All that's left to be done is destroy the building.
