RoivasSevil Visit - December 6, 2012

On December 6, 2012 RoivasSevil came in chat to news that theunknown had been killed by The Mirror. After severely admonishing the Butterflies, and fearing for their own safety, RoivasSevil and the butterflies agreed to a modified ritual to try and recover theunknown.

RoivasSevil typically comes in chat with a blue camera with small animated butterflies flying around the screen. RoivasSevil will not speak until multiple Butterflies are on camera, and have changed their names to their given Butterfly names. RoivasSevil usually speak in a backwards alpha-numerical cypher which has been transposed into regular text for this transcript. The transcript has been edited and usernames have been changed to Butterfly names for the sake of clarity. Personal information has been redacted.

RoivasSevil enters the chat
Chat: Hi Roivas!
RoivasSevil: Hello my Butterflies. So far so good, it went for the three of you, and I was able to hide you all from it.
Allyni: w00t! Did you learn anything useful?
RoivasSevil: It does not make sense, this creature…It seems to move in multiple directions at once…
Allyni: Well, it does refer to itself as "we"
RoivasSevil: Many many directions at once…
Pennies: Mirrors is suspected to be a collective, right?
RoivasSevil: I am afraid we will have to go another round…We will have to move forward another three…Also…something is odd…When I left, I could not see Apollo, now I can again…But she looks…wrong…
Stelenes: How?
RoivasSevil: What has happened?
Loxura: I guess you must be seeing her through It's eyes? So to speak? …Oh crap wait. She did a ritual of her own making…
RoivasSevil: ???
Loxura: The desk lamp got pissed, decided to claim it killed someone unless we did a deal on it's terms. I told it no. And so now supposedly it killed her.
RoivasSevil: Please…Explain completely. What has happened?
Allyni: It wanted Loxura to say, "I am nowhere"
Loxura: It HATES me, for some reason…
Wollastoni: It calls him "lair", Roivas
Loxura: Oh…and also…when she watched the recent video on Caught's channel. And saw the Dark Place and It, the rain stopped where she was living…almost like it affected things there.
RoivasSevil: It claimed to have killed this person, or it said it would kill them, if Loxura did not comply?
Hesperiaris: It never said for sure
Loxura: I don't think it actually said "I have killed them". It didn't even do that, just listed info. In the style that she was dead.
RoivasSevil: That makes sense…I'm sorry…
Satyrus: I have a question when there is an opening to do so. I will hang around until that point.
RoivasSevil: Things here, cannot touch much of what goes on where you are, without some form of contract.
Loxura: It put me in a position where no matter what I did, I was making a choice.
RoivasSevil: A contract can be complex, or simple. Simply by understanding the threat existed and choosing not to act, can be counted as compliance, in some circumstances. As in, you believed this creature can do harm, and decided not to act, thus, you completed the contract. Allowed it to happen, likely, this person is dead.
Loxura: Yeah, basically me saying "No" is me saying "kill her" to it's twisted sense of hearing.
RoivasSevil: I'm sorry.
Loxura: Though. when I made that choice. I personally, didn't believe, and still don't really…that it could hurt anyone as a result.
RoivasSevil: But you should all understand this.
Loxura: The style of choice making is the same. No matter what you do, even if you don't make a choice. It's a choice.
RoivasSevil: Given the impossible choice the one-I-cannot-remember had to make. You should all understand the reality of that choice…
Loxura: Roivas, do you have an idea what that ritual it wanted me to do, would have ultimately done?
RoivasSevil: I have to think…Maybe it was better when you weren't on the front lines with me…
Wollastoni: Roivas, we're going to fight by your side till the very end.
RoivasSevil: I don't know if this is working…
Allyni: We want to fight alongside you Roivas
Hesperiaris: "Strength through Unity", and all that.
RoivasSevil: Yes, and your choices are now costing lives…From what I understand, innocent lives.
Hesperiaris: And choosing to back off now would very probably end in the loss of Natalie and Caught and who knows who else.
Thyodamas: Probably me too.
Loxura: That was my only choice Roivas. My responsibility. My fault. Inadvertently speaking anyway…
RoivasSevil: It has nothing to do with losing faith. The fact is you are dropping off one by one. Things are not well, and getting worse.
Hesperiaris: And so are you asking us to leave you to do this on your own?
Loxura: We knew what we were getting into when we came into all this.
Thyodamas: I have gone too far to give up now.
RoivasSevil: I did not say that, I said I had to think.
Croesus: If they separate now, it only makes it so much easier for it to pick them off, no?
Wollastoni: Do you not want us anymore?
RoivasSevil: What exactly did Apollo do?
Hesperiaris: "I see you, you do not see Caycee Foss" To the mirror while pressing her hand against it.
RoivasSevil: We will continue as planned. Please…do not doubt the weight of your decisions. I…I…cannot lose you.
Wollastoni: Roivas, We're not going anywhere.
Allyni: We'll be careful.
Loxura: I don't doubt them. I made my choice for the plan, and for everyone else. I don't think me being "nowhere" would have helped anyone or the plan…
RoivasSevil: Loxura, why? Why did you make this decision?
Loxura: I made it for everyone. I figured Mirrors is a bastard, there would be a catch, you or everyone else wouldn't know I existed, which would have messed up the plan by my reasoning.
RoivasSevil: But to choose that, over a person's life…I do not understand…
Hyparete: It said it would kill SOMEBODY
Hesperiaris: We didn't know, exactly, that the deal was for her life.
Loxura: I didn't believe Mirrors could do anything. I called it's bluff.
RoivasSevil: Seems a steep gamble to make.
Loxura: It gave me half an hour. To choose between trusting it and possibly fucking things up for everyone. Or calling it's bluff in attempts to keep things moving as were needed. Personally I did not think it could kill anyone. I may be wrong. But that was my reasoning at the time.
RoivasSevil: But…you all saw what it did to Natalie.
Loxura: Like I say. It was choice where the outcome was probably not going to be good either way.
RoivasSevil: We all know it is capable of…at least to a point.
Hesperiaris: But here's the thing, I was not, nor am I, convinced that the trade had anything to do with Caycee Foss.
RoivasSevil: And I like you am capable of being wrong. When a life may be on the line, I would think you would use greater judgement.
Loxura: Nor am I . It twists things. And I don't trust anything it says for a second.
Hesperiaris: Doesn't matter, what's done is done. This thing is winning by simple virtue of the fact that we're getting split by strife and pointing fingers.
Thyodamas: I still trust him, regardless of his choice.
Croesus: I'd have made the same choice as Loxura, in his position…
Loxura: If that's what you think Roivas, fair enough. But I stand by my choice.
Croesus: there was NO WAY to know what would come of making that deal. We were just as likely to be risking LOXURA'S life by agreeing.
Hesperiaris: A choice was made, and if she is dead, there is no way of undoing it. It's done. However horrible it is.
Loxura: It wasn't my life I did this for though..that's something I want to be clear.
Allyni: We need to learn from this. And we need to be better informed of what these dark place things are able to do so we can make better choices in the future.
RoivasSevil: You all told me, you would risk yourselves to help others, this is why I thought we could handle this together.
Allyni: We will.
Loxura: This was my choice. Not theirs.
RoivasSevil: When the one I can't remember was put in a position like this, from what I understand, they did. And are paying the price for that. This I can and do respect.
Loxura: If you have to doubt anyone Roivas. It should be me. I made the choice. Don't suddenly start doubting the whole family because I potentially made a bad choice.
Thyodamas: I knew my stakes, he didn't
Papilio: Roivas, We have stuck by you this far.
Hesperiaris: The choice Loxura was given as do this ritual or…Or not. The consequences of both were kept from us.
RoivasSevil: Don't worry, Loxura, I do. I am sorry if this is hard to hear. But it is important we all understand the weight of choices. Otherwise, we will not survive this. That cannot happen.
Allyni: What are the rules of dealing with creatures from the Dark Place?
Urbanus: Roivas, We're all pretty freakin aware of the weight our choices have. unknown was our friend.
Allyni: How do we know what is bull and what could happen.
RoivasSevil: You are misunderstanding me, I am not angry at you. I am scared for you…I am scared for us.
Loxura: Roivas, do you know any reason Mirrors would hate me as much as it does? And can we use that against it?
Papilio: Roivas, we are here for you. We are strong. Together as a family.
Croesus: Well nobody said it was going to be easy. Doesn't mean anyone is walking away.
Allyni: We know, Roivas. We are too. I'm sorry things ended up the way they did.
Papilio: Sure we're all a little scared but we need to focus and use our collective strength before Mirrors tries to snuff it out. Take strength from our light Roivas.
Allyni: How can we keep it from putting us in that sort of position again? Because we were just trying to cut a deal with it and then suddenly it turned it into a deal for someone's life.
Wollastoni: It keeps backing us into corners.
Croesus: And lying
RoivasSevil: This is why I tried to hide you from this creature. It is cold…Empty…it will not be merciful, in any capacity…
Little Butterfly: That's why we fight back.
RoivasSevil: It's everywhere and sees so much…it sees what matters…
Loxura: Now is not the time to be second guessing ourselves. It will not. We have to carry on. Or else it wins.
RoivasSevil: …takes over it…it took everything…and not it is doing it again
Satyrus: Roivas, we're here. We're still here. Focus on us.
Hesperiaris: If it's happened before, then you can tell us what it did. How it went last time…
RoivasSevil goes dark
RoivasSevil: You think you know the pain this thing can create…you think I am angry at you…//
Satyrus: No, we think you are disappointed in us
RoivasSevil: I will not let this thing do this…not again.
Loxura: Or at least, in me.
Papilio: Roivas…We're all just scared. And confused.
RoivasSevil: Continue with the plan. I am going to tear this mother fucker to pieces. This thing Apollo did…how long, after the threat was it done?
Allyni: About two hours.
Loxura: It was a pretty immediate response.
RoivasSevil: Hm…the one who was threatened, what is their name?
Glaucopsyche: Caccee Foss.
RoivasSevil: I am done fucking around with this thing. All who are willing, place a hand on a mirror, state the name I have given you and say the words "show me where you found Caccee Foss." If she is alone I will find her. I will not have Apollo's sacrifice in vain.
Allyni: Roivas, please be careful. And would you like us to do this now?
RoivasSevil: Then, I am going to end this. I am going to do this as soon as possible, with or without you.
Loxura: Won't this affect the plan, though??
RoivasSevil: I am changing the plan.
Allyni: Should we say for example "Allyni, Show me where you found Caccee Foss" Or "I am Allyni, etc"
RoivasSevil: The latter.
Loxura: Roivas. What about Natalie? That what the original plan was for? Surely we can attack this thing after she's safe?
RoivasSevil: I do not place one life's value over another. Things have changed, the plan must change.
Leilia: The original plan was to get Natalie, and get Rene's light back. None of those have been done, and we've lost someone now.
RoivasSevil: Natalie, will have to wait.
Loxura: The original plan isn't finished though. We could still find Natalie?
Allyni: Roivas, do you truly feel up to this? We don't want anything to happen to you.
Wollastoni: We can't lose you anymore than you can lose us.
RoivasSevil: No life over another, that includes my own. As far as I know, there is nothing we can do to weaken it…I need you to know…just…thank you…for being my family.
Wollastoni: Roivas, you sound like you're saying goodbye.
Loxura: No. Don't you dare suicide yourself.
Thyodamas: There was something coming in here, it was using my face. It goes by the name _____. And it talks with certain words blanked out. Do you know what that could be? The images it used for my face were from my past videos btw.
RoivasSevil: …no. Sorry.
Thyodamas: It's ok <3
Allyni: Roivas, I really don't want something bad to happen to you.
Leilia: I have a question, Roivas. Do you think it'd be willing to trade for something else's light? Mirrors, I mean.
Little Butterfly: Roivas, if you go on a suicide mission, I will use this key and find you.
RoivasSevil: little butterfly, I would not subconsciously, or otherwise give you a key to the dark place. Nice try though =3
Allyni: Roivas, if something does happen to you is there a way we can help Natalie?
RoivasSevil: Loxura, your choices are not mine.
Loxura: I know.
RoivasSevil: It was this family that potentially killed this person. It was this family that at least got the hurt. I am not all right with that. So, if I can I am going to fix it. You can help, or stand aside.
Allyni: I will totally help you if you're going to do this, I just don't want you hurt
RoivasSevil: Listen. I was left here, to this place, alone. No one came for me, no one ever will. I will not be in any way responsible to that happening to anyone else.
Allyni: What can we do for Natalie if the worst happens? We can't leave her there. We begged her to go get those tools. We wanted to help not leave her lost.
RoivasSevil: You asked me if I was losing faith in you. I am not. You will find a way. Loxura, you were acting to protect your family. I am sorry if I was too hard on you.
Loxura: …Thanks.
Phlogea: Roivas, I have a question if that's alright.
RoivasSevil: ?
Phlogea: You've mentioned the significance of palindromes in the dark place. My butterfly name you gave me is the 89:98 butterfly…I guess that's not a question as much as it makes me curious about you choosing it for me.
RoivasSevil: You aren't afraid to try anything. So, you can achieve anything.
Interrogationis: Roivas, what did you mean, you won't let this happen again.
RoivasSevil: And no, I won't let this happen again. That is why I must do this.
Leilia: What do you mean by again though?
RoivasSevil: I don't want to talk about that…Leilia…You're hair looks very nice. Grr-rawr =3
Leilia: …Thanks.
RoivasSevil: Goodbye, my butterflies.
