IC: Darvin

 

Darvin shook his head once again

"Makuta may have been the closest thing we have to a demon, but he was mortal just the same. But once again I propose the question of why must one's faith be measured by how well they can gather. Why can one not be faithful, while remaining solitary? Must they gather like a herd of mahi, mindless to those around them, merely following the one they view as a shepherd."

 

He extends a hand towards the group, and the one who gave the original speech

"So i ask of you, why must there be multiple mahi, but only one shepherd? Why can not every mahi be a shepherd for themselves? This all relates back to my original question. Why must one's faith be measured in their ability to gather? In an era when everyone is busy, why must they take time out of their day to gather, when they could easily find time to be faithful that allows them to maintain their duty? Do you honestly believe Mata-nui cares whether his people gather to praise his name, or do you think he cares that they are able to unify when the time is right? Able to stand together when under threat. Mata-nui did not give the matoran and all his followers the three virtues, just so they could be herded like mindless mahi.

IC: The Recluse

This discussion was frustrating. He still wasn't getting all of it, but he thought he understood the gist of it. He didn't see it ending very quickly. Both sides of the argument seemed set in their views, and neither was likely to give up. He knew what side he stood on, though. 

 

"Shh," he shushed, stepping out onto the balcony. He shook his head at Darvin as if saying 'Don't waste your breath' and leaned on the railing, examining the group that had been conversing.

IC: Darvin

 

Darvin looked over at the toa of silence he had become accustomed to and smiled, before looking back at the group

"I may twist words, but at least I answer questions when asked. You still have yet to answer my question."

 

And he said these next words slowly and deliberately

"Why. Must. One's. Faith. Be. Measured. By. How. Well. They. Can. Gather?"

The Toa of Plants closed his eyes and sighed. Giving up on stopping the two of them, he vaulted the edge of the balcony and slid down to the ground on a hastily-created vine, landing softly in the red grass below.

IC:.

 

Arius smiled at the Lesterin, and tried his best to answer the stranger's criticism, even if they had little to do with anything they had said. "No being is an island, without civilization only the strongest, most ruthless, and luckiest would survive, and not for very long. People gather to accomplish things that would be impossible alone. "Why must one's faith be measure by how well they can gather"? Because every thing else is. Commerce, war, the technological advancement you are so found of, all of these grow stronger through people gathering together, becoming more connect and unified, not less. Contrary to what you seem to think, it is rahi that can live with no concern for others, following only there own whims, knowing when it is better to submit instead is gift given only to those that can reason, and there is more value in following then in leading, even if few see things that way."

 

Hopefully he understands at least a little better, Arius though, even if he knew there was little likely hood of that. Funny how some could let skepticism blind them to the point of being just as blind as they claimed the strongly religious were. 

 

"Now, if you'll excuse us, we have a lot to do, and the day is no getting longer," he concluded, leaving the Lesterin and begining to climb the rogue-hewed steps up to the temple.

-IC:-

 

The air is warm and dark and sinful.

 

Rectification: the sultry atmosphere is resplendently iniquitous. Shadows thick and ashen upon my tongue.

 

The darkness welcomes my magnificence with the susurrations of the subsurvient. Crimson juxtaposed upon black; conflagration and demise. Unsung pulchritude of extravasation; they bled (will bleed) in my name (Recipitent of affected haemorrhage). Their death was my possession; I am their god and they mine. Cognitively dissonant deity; they worshipped me with loathing. Nominative: me. I.

 

Worshipped; god, deity, master. Definitons of the primitively instinctual (master-slave relationship; genitive case nimiety). Domination. The act of positive emotional responses in the presence of negative responses, from both others and yourself. Grammatical cases; ownership description.

 

Sic semper tyrannus. I am the greatest tyrant; death. Upon my birth the gods wept blood and the heavens precipitated hellfire. An incandescent double-edged sword slithers from my mouth. I crawl from the abyss; Abaddon, they whisper, as I rise.

 

I am greater than heroes. I am superior to gods. Twenty corpses and a conflagration. That is my miracle; my honor, my chivalry. Pain is my legacy; vilification more delectable than veneration.

 

I am death.

 

I do not commiserate, except for myself (objective case). Me. I (see: Chaos, Death, Inferno).

 

I do not weep; yet they (nominative) always do. Perhaps I shall force my lachrymal gland to secrete, and experience the sensation myself. It seems an odd comfort in moments of pain.

 

I do not love; affection is meaningless. A positive feeling of pleasure? Do you comprehend the true nature of pleasure? It is nothing. It does not exist. No man can objectively define it but every fool wants it. To grasp ether.

 

I (objective) am death.

 

Godeater.

 

And I do not weep.

 

* * *

 

Avak's hesitation to finish his already-commenced attempt at my removal suggests a secondary force acting in my interest, or perhaps directly against his (read: everyone's least favorite ivory schizoid). Words passed in vacuous conversation; my politic internal conversations reduced to debile dialectic with the covetous engineer. Asinine insipidity abounds, and presented with such delightful smiles. I do not connive or mentally diagram, as is the usual case when surrounded by my inane comrades, but assume a state of mental void. It is uncomfortable to oppose the tide of obtuseness their presence generates; I let the fatuous fluidity generate my responses. Animalistic reactions.

 

I can feel the blood drying beneath my talon-esque fingernails. Encrusted, blackened. Silent memory plays through mind with cold, beautiful impersonality. I reduce mental activities and enjoy; walking, breathing, and observing with tranquility. Smile frozen, eyes incandescent.

 

Breathe. Air soft and cold in my iron lungs, expanding my granitic ribcage as the lower respiratory tract continues its designated functions. The intercoastal muscles rumble (or perhaps it is a cardiac murmur from my ashen heart; mistaken and confused transmission of blood and lymph) as they labor, rasping tissue arenaceous. No flesh visible, only superior, impersonal imitations; benumbed and metalline.

 

Reidak,” I venture, conversation invoked from tedium engendered by silence. Not exactly a sufficient alternative to colloquy, but hopefully sufficient for the purpose of personal edutainment. “What made you think to assault the Onu-Toa with melee combat while the rest of us fled? At first I thought it a stupid action; you standing there and striking him with hand-held explosives, and smiling. I just didn't realise you were so selfless; your distraction was flawlessly altruistic. I'll have to remember to ask you to repeat the action whenever I would normally suggest throwing Avak into our pursuers.

 

"'The rest of [you] fled,' Hakann dearest, is the crucial phrase in that sentence; what made you think to 'flee' like a little ######?"

 

"For an individual with so much talent in the field of adaptation, you possess little desire to retain precious vital organs. Survival does not necessitate unnecessary combat; if anything, dear beserker, it encourages the inverse." I evince my disdain with a sneer, although his pitiful response is hardly deserving of reply.

 

Conversation finished, we lapse into silence. Eyes brooding and movements jejune, my purile companions bear more resemblance to hypercarnivorous Rahi than intelligent beings; dark physicality drives their motions, nothing more. Scavengers in the presence of an apex predator, basking in their inferior trophic placement. My breath is cold and hard within my lungs; I strain to keep myself from replicating Avak's murderous actions. Mute and pernicious, we descend deeper into darkness.

IC: The Recluse

The green and brown Toa turned around to the tree house and bowed gratefully. He would return here some time and repay the delicious meal he'd been given, but for now he didn't want to lose this group that seemed to share his interests, at least as far as he could understand. They disdained of technology. He disdained of technology. He'd find out more if he could. For now, he jogged after the group, falling into step a little behind them. He didn't have a clear way to show his support but to follow.

IC: Darvin

 

Darvin merely smiled at the way the apparent leader justified his cause. He could see what he got at, but also where he was wrong. Without another word he turned back towards the entrance to his home. He wouldn't have stopped if not for the bow he noticed from the toa of silence he had spent the better part of the day with, offering a gracious smile to him and a slight wave, before returning upon his path. 

 

Despite what Arius had said, one train of thought kept running through Darvin's head, even as the large double doors closed behind him

But in gathering for faith, Can one gather of their own free will? Or do they gather out of fear for what shall happen if they don't?
