Politics

The Universe:
{Damien arches a brow, smiles} Babe.. Taryn’s hot, but not into that idea. {looks over at Alexei and smiles again} Hey.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra smiles at Alexei} Hey you.
The Universe:
{Alexei nods} Hello. I am sorry it took me so long. I was.. indisposed.
The Universe:
{Damien arches a brow, still smiling} Oh, yeah? The new girl?
The Universe:
{Alexei looks at Damien} I have been with her, yes. By choice and by Genja’s decree.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra looks between them as they talk, letting Damien take the lead}
The Universe:
{Damien nods} Right. I forgot about that. {looks at Kendra} How did I forget about that?
The Cosmos:
{Kendra shakes her head} I don’t know. {looks at Alexei} You said by choice though.. {smiles} this is a good thing?
The Universe:
{Alexei smiles, nods} I enjoy her company very much.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra smiles} So being with her isn’t a hardship?
The Universe:
{Alexei looks at Kendra} It is much easier than I first anticipated.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra nods and smiles at him again} She’s definitely easy on the eyes.
The Universe:
{Alexei smiles} She is a very beautiful girl, yes.
The Universe:
{Damien smiles, shakes his head} All very non-committal answers. We actually wanted to talk to you about her candidly. Edward is utterly freaked out by what she did to Ciara and then to Glen.
The Universe:
{Alexei nods} I have discussed that with her and she will be taking responsibility for it.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra looks at Alexei} Talk to us.
The Universe:
{Alexei looks at them, takes a breath, quietly} I told her it would be better to do so rather than to not, even if she truly did not mean to do it. She knows there is damage control to be done.
The Universe:
{Damien nods} And do *you* believe she didn’t mean to do it?
The Universe:
{Alexei looks at Damien} I would prefer a closed door.
The Universe:
{Damien nods} You and me both.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra looks at Damien, then at Alexei} I’m not sure I understand.
The Universe:
{Damien looks at Kendra} We’re going to move this conversation somewhere more private.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra nods} All right.
The Universe:
{Alexei nods} We can use Phoenix’s old room. It is just off here. {heads to her former “closet” off the kitchen}
The Cosmos:
{Kendra looks at Damien and follows Alexei}
The Universe:
{Damien goes with Kendra and Alexei, inside the room, he closes the door behind him and looks around him} *This* was her old room?
The Universe:
{Alexei nods} Yes. A revenant member of the family living in less than servant’s quarters.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra frowns} Her family…sucked.
The Universe:
{Alexei looks at Kendra, quietly} Her family disgusts me.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra looks at Alexei, quietly} Why? What else?
The Universe:
{Damien leans against the dresser, Alexei sighs} They were more of a harem than a family. Even the children. They had created ghouls who did the labor and whom the elders would not lower themselves to touch. {looks at Damien} She asked me if I believed she did not mean what she did to Glen and I told her I did because she needed me to, but I am not sure if I do or not. I want to believe her, but.. she is a vampire and I have been around enough vampires and women to know that they are rarely innocent.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra listens processing what she’s being told}
The Universe:
{Alexei shakes his head} I believe it will be a good thing for you and Edward to train her. I do not believe she is evil. I do believe she has many misconceptions and twisted ideas that are a result of living under her grandfather’s rule and I think she needs to see how different we are from what she is used to.
The Universe:
{Damien looks at him} How bad *was* this guy, Alexei.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra looks at Damien}
The Universe:
{Alexei looks at Damien} He makes Genja look well adjusted and perhaps even kind.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra mutters} Shit.
The Universe:
{Damien arches a brow} Shit.
The Universe:
{Alexei nods} I would not be adverse to Dominic raising his spirit and enslaving him.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra looks at Alexei, blinks} Damn. I wouldn’t wish that on my worst enemy. You .. care for her?
The Universe:
{Alexei nods} I do. Very much. I am aware of how little time I have been with her, but… it has been very… productive. She *is* gathering information. She has made no secret about that. Her stated intent is simply so she can get along in her new environment and I do believe that.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra nods} And what about what she did to Ciara?
The Universe:
{Alexei looks at Kendra} She meant only to feed. She did not even realize what smelling the blood would have done to her and what she would have done to Ciara in turn.
The Universe:
{Damien shakes his head} Raised with vampires, how could she not know?
The Cosmos:
{Kendra looks at Damien} Fair point.
The Universe:
{Alexei shakes his head} I do not know. She was turned at twenty three. That means she had been around them for nearly 100 years before she was turned. So, yes. It is a fair question.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra looks at Damien} So let’s ask *her*.
The Universe:
{Alexei looks at them} Considering the family served the vampires, would it not be fair to assume that they had never witnessed a starving vampire because the vampires were never without a food source?
The Cosmos:
{Kendra nods} That or they kept those in the family away from the starving vampires.
The Universe:
{Alexei nods} So it is not impossible.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra nods} It isn’t.. improbable but not impossible. {looks at Damien}
The Universe:
{Damien nods in agreement}
The Universe:
{Alexei nods} Then if you want to be sure of her, it seems to me that you need to find something to ask her about that is an impossibility rather than an improbability.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra arches her brow at Alexei} Do you have something in mind?
The Universe:
{Alexei shakes his head} No. But it did occur to me too late that perhaps she was as interested in listening to me as she was because she was looking for information she could use to her benefit.
The Universe:
{Alexei smiles} She did say that when Damien took her to task, her “sub came screaming to the surface”.
The Universe:
{Damien smiles} Yeah, well.. when she questioned me, my Dom came screaming to the surface. A bit quicker and more strongly than I would have liked.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra smiles wickedly} Oh *really*. {looks at Damien an idea forming}
The Universe:
{Damien looks at Kendra, smiles} I know that look. What are you thinking, woman?
The Universe:
{Alexei, quietly} She also told me she wanted me to dominate her.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra smiles} Oh.. only that perhaps Dominant Damien should pay her a visit.
The Universe:
{Damien looks at Alexei, arches a brow} She *said* that? {smiles} How did you feel about that.
The Universe:
{Alexei smiles} All to willing to accommodate.
The Universe:
{Damien nods, still smiling, looks at Kendra} Really? And what do you think Dominant Damien should do?
The Cosmos:
{Kendra arches her brow} Well Dominate her of course.. Not sexually but question her. {smiles at Alexei} And if *both* of you are doing it.. she’s toast.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra smiles wickedly} *I* wouldn’t have the strength to resist the two of you in Dominant mode.
The Universe:
{Alexei smiles, Damien arches a brow} If only you’d told me that *before* Sang and Van.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra smiles} In another life.
The Universe:
{Damien sighs dramatically} Missed opportunities are a bitch.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra smiles brightly at him} Babe.. you wouldn’t even if you could. You like me too much.
The Universe:
{Damien laughs} Babe.. if we ever find ourselves single again, the *first* thing I’m going to do is show you how very wrong you are.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra nods still smiling} I’ll hold you to that.
The Universe:
{Damien smiles, nods} All right.
The Universe:
{Alexei smiles} Because she knows it will be a *very* long time before you are both single again.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra looks over at Alexei} There are no promises in this world.
The Universe:
{Alexei nods} Of that, I am very much aware. {smiles} But I am feeling optimistic tonight.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra smiles} I can tell. {looks at them} So.. to Dom or not to Dom? That is the question.
The Universe:
{Damien smiles} That is *never* a question.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra looks at Alexei questioningly}
The Universe:
{Alexei looks between them, quietly} I will not allow you to hurt her anymore than I would allow her to hurt you.
The Universe:
{Damien looks at Alexei} We don’t want to hurt her. We just want piece of mind. And it sounds like you could use it, too.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra nods to Alexei} And your being there will assure it doesn’t happen and will comfort her as well.
The Universe:
{Alexei nods} Peace of mind would be nice, but.. I do not think it will matter to me in the end. I want to ask Genja to give me to her. I have never been affected by a woman as I am her.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra nods} I also think it will give her some…peace as well.
The Universe:
{Damien looks at Alexei} That… sounds serious, Alexei. You don’t think it’s too soon for that? Especially with all the questions surrounding her?
The Cosmos:
{Kendra looks at Damien and nods} And that too.
The Universe:
{Alexei looks at Damien} I think it is the perfect time *because* of all the questions surrounding her.
The Universe:
{Damien nods} Because you think she needs it.
The Universe:
{Alexei nods} And because if things go badly, it might be the only chance we have.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra looks at Damien}
The Universe:
{Damien looks at Kendra} How can we argue with that?
The Cosmos:
{Kendra walks over and sits at the bar} Can’t. Not really.
The Universe:
{Damien nods, smiles at Alexei} Romantics.
The Universe:
{Alexei smiles, counters} Italians.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra smiles} Still think the two of you should go Dom on her though.
The Universe:
{Damien smiles at Kendra} You just want to watch and live vicariously through her while we do it.
The Universe:
{Alexei smiles} Kendra does not need to. She has Evander.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra smiles} Oh.. but I do want to watch.. I think it would be a sight to behold.
The Universe:
{Alexei shakes his head, Damien laughs} Babe.. I still can’t believe you weren’t shocked when Alexei said she wanted *him* to dominate her.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra smiles} It’s hard to see him in that role. {looks at Alexei} And I really mean no offense by that.
The Universe:
{Alexei nods} I am not offended as I did not expect it wouldn’t be.
The Universe:
{Damien looks at Alexei} But Nix can see you in that role.
The Universe:
{Alexei shrugs} Perhaps she does not see me as others do.
The Universe:
{Damien nods} Right. Or just sees more of you. {looks at him} You have to have *some* dominant type traits to run the ghouls like you do.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra quietly} I can see it.
The Universe:
{Damien nods to Kendra} We can dominate her if Alexei’s willing when we’re done here. Do we have anything else we want to talk about that we can’t just talk about anywhere?
The Cosmos:
{Kendra shakes her head} I don’t think so.
The Universe:
{Damien nods} All right. {looks at Alexei} Are you good with this? The whole domming out on her thing.
The Universe:
{Alexei nods} If it must be done, it must be done. If it is the least intrusive and harmful way to get the results needed, then yes. I would not like her to be scared, but I feel it will not be avoidable. However, I feel that perhaps this can be done quickly enough that her fear will be short lived.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra looks at Alexei} She might need this to reset. {Frowns} I know that’s not the right word..
The Universe:
{Damien looks at Kendra} Actually, I think that’s a very good word.
The Universe:
{Alexei smiles} Decompress?

The Cosmos:
{Kendra nods to Alexei and smiles at Damien} Yes. I’m sure the pressure she’s under is…incredible.

The Universe:
{Damien nods} I’m sure it is. And the uncertainty is putting pressure on the rest of us.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra looks at Damien, quietly} Sang…
The Universe:
{Damien looks at Kendra} Sang went to see… {smiles slowly} Yes. Sang. She should totally be there.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra looks at Damien} Will she know…what to do?
The Universe:
{Damien shrugs} I hope not.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra smiles} Ohhh.. bad Damien.
The Universe:
{Damien smiles} I want to see how she responds naturally.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra looks at Damien} What do you want me to do?
The Universe:
{Damien looks at Kendra} Sit there and be pretty and gauge what else we might need? I’m also thinking that we should summon them to *the* dungeon.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra nods} All right.. {looks at Alexei} Are you okay?
The Universe:
{Alexei looks at Kendra} I am not actually sure I can “dom out” in the presence of a dominant vampire. It is not… appropriate behavior for one of my status.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra quietly} Even if you have permission from said dom?
The Universe:
{Alexei starts to say something, Damien interrupts} Permission, my ass. Consider it an order.
The Universe:
{Alexei looks at Damien, smiles} As you wish.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra blinks} Sweet. {looks at Damien} And the other two that were with Sang?
The Universe:
{Damien looks at Kendra} They can go.. do.. gushy techno-shit together. Maybe he’s hacked a better vibrator they need to test out.
The Universe:
{Alexei blinks, laughs} I would not be at all surprised. R2-D2 is “anatomically correct”.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra tilts her head, blinks} Is *that* what that thing is?
The Universe:
{Alexei smiles at Kendra and Damien} Gabriel equipped him with a piston for a penis. It even.. {grins} pistons as he moves around.
The Universe:
{Damien cracks up} I *so* want to see this.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra laughs} So let’s do this.
The Universe:
{Alexei smiles again} He is giving C3PO breasts.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra smiles} He’s such a geek.
The Universe:
{Alexei smiles broadly} These are not the droids they were looking for.
The Universe:
{Damien laughs} I wonder if Chloe will get jealous and make him keep the breasts off 3PO.
The Universe:
{Alexei laughs} She will if she catches him fondling them.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra laughs} You guys are awful.
The Universe:
{Damien laughs again} Shit. {smiles} I am totally going to Gabe’s to check out the droids when we’re done with this.
The Universe:
{Damien heads for the door, smiling and shaking his head} Come on. Let’s get this over with.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra grins} Be careful Luke.. the force is strong in that one.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra goes with them}
The Universe:
{Damien laughs again, Alexei smiles at Kendra} I wonder if sexualized droids will become the new trendy fetish.
The Universe:
{as they walk out}
The Cosmos:
{Kendra laughs} Oh.. god.. That’s awful.
The Universe:
{Alexei grins} I will make sure Loch hears about it. He can plan a themed show around it.
The Universe:
{the boys head to the dungeon, Damien summoning Sang and Nix}
The Cosmos:
{Kendra goes with them} That’s great a themed show around sexualized droids.
