Episode 6 is here: http://www.debate.org...

(Also, apparently, it's upload your story day on DDO).

4 Weeks Ago...

"Atheists DO believe in a God. They just don't want to admit it!"
"Bodybags for f@gs!"
"You're all idiots!"
"The stupidity levels are too damn high!"

Day after day, the same insults. The same breaches of conduct. If this trend continued, Airmax reflected, the entire Kingdom of DDO could be compromised. People nursed grievances and concealed grudges. Tempers flared daily, and brawls in the streets were not uncommon. People like Caploxion had already been exiled for repeated infractions against the Kingdom, and Imabench was currently under house arrest. YYW and another individual had been warned not to interact with each other under pain of banishment. But still, the trend had only been rising.

Airmax confided all of this in his closest friend, Oryus. He was a great listener and waited with the patience of a statue.

"What should I do?" Airmax asked at the end of his rant. "I'm a Moderator! People look to me."

"Shh," Oryus whispered. Airmax fell silent. "You have responsibilities, Airmax."

"I want to uphold them."

"I know, old friend. You were always the responsible one."

"Me? Did you know me at all?" The two chuckled. "I just...I don't want them to hate me."

"What matters more to you? Their love? Or the quality of the Kingdom?" Airmax sat deep in thought. Oryus moved closer. "I know both are important, Maxie. But sometimes we have to make difficult choices to protect the people we love."

Airmax started to ask 'why me' but stopped. He knew why, and Oryus knew that he knew. Instead, he inquired, "how?"

Oryus sat back. "You'll have to visit the Spellmaster."

________________________________________

Present Day

Linkish did not like his situation at all. Not one bit.

Tylergraham stood on his left, tall and imposing. On his right stood YYW and bsh1. Based on the rumors he'd heard about them, Linkish was surprised to see them outside the bedroom.

He opened his mouth to ask what was going on, but before he could say anything, a darkness fell across the room. All the lights went out, as if slain by an evil mist.

From somewhere within the darkness, Ore_Ele appeared directly before Linkish. It took every nerve in his body not to step back. Next to Linkish, though he could not see it, YYW and bsh1 traded glances. Ore_Ele had a knack for dramatic entrances.

"You don't recoil," Ore_Ele noted with a hint of approval in his tone.

"I'm not a man who gets scared," Linkish answered.

"Excellent," Ore_Ele smiled. "Something I can admire." He walked around Linkish, who struggled to turn to keep Ore_Ele in sight, but YYW and Tylergraham kept him firmly in place.

"What do you want with me?" Linkish demanded. He couldn't tell for sure, but he was positive that Ore_Ele stood only inches away from him. He could feel the chill as it crept down the back of his neck. He nearly flinched when Ore_Ele's gloved hand stroked his shoulder. But only nearly.

"I have need of your services," Ore_Ele said. YYW nudged bsh1, but nobody noticed.

"My services?" Linkish kept his expression blank. "I'm afraid I haven't the slightest idea -"

"Don't lie to me, Linkish," Ore_Ele hissed. Linkish felt the cold touch of his knife against his wrist. Slowly, cautiously, he began moving his hand to slide the blade up further.

Suddenly he froze. He couldn't move.

The next thing Linkish knew, he was soaring through the air. He crashed against the wall and slid to the ground, dazed. He could just hear Ore_Ele approach him.

"Let's try that again, shall we?" Ore_Ele asked pleasantly. He knelt to look Linkish in the eye. "I want you to assassinate Zaradi."

"And why should I -"

"One thousand ELO."

Linkish fell silent. It was a sizable amount. But -

"Two thousand."

Linkish paused. Had Ore_Ele heard his thoughts? No, that was impossible. But 2,000 ELO...

"And guarenteed protection by the Kingdom, of course," Ore_Ele added smoothly. Linkish nodded slowly.

"Sounds like a deal."

_______________________________________________

General Lannan held up a hand. The troops stopped instantly.

"What is it, general?" Asked XLAV. Lannan didn't answer. He glanced around the relatively empty marketplace.

"You!" He demanded. The young woman in the yellow stopped at his command.

"Can I help you?"

"Where is the home of Daytona?"

The woman pointed further down the street.

"Head down that way. It's, uh...well, his name is illuminated over it. You can't miss it."

"Thank you," General Lannan turned and waved his soldiers onward. Jonbonbon watched them depart. Whatever they wanted with Daytona, she knew it couldn't be good. But it also wasn't a concern of hers. She had much bigger fish to fry.

_______________________________________________

"Thett?" Crypto asked, concern emblazoned across his face. "Thett, what's the matter?"

"The matter?" Thett shrugged. "Nothing. I'm fine."

"Thett. Come on now."

Thett sighed. "There's no fooling you, is there, Crypto?"

"Nope," Crypto grinned. "So out with it."

Thett glanced around to make sure they were alone. A few other passerby were window-shopping...cart-shopping...browsing in the market square, but other than that, there was no one around. General Lannan had already come through searching for Daytona.

"I've decided to join Zaradi's rebellion," he whispered.

Crypto blinked. "Thett, are you mad?"

"No," Thett answered. "I'm - I can't take it, Crypto. Every time I see YYW with - him - it kills me inside. Zaradi's offering me the one person I need."

"The one person?" Crypto pressed. "What about Royal?"

"She's gone," Thett said stiffly. "Don't torment me with the past, Crypto. YYW's all there is now." Crypto studied his friend's face, saw the resolution in his eyes.

"Thett," Crypto said, "I want you to be happy. And if that's what does it, then I'll help you."

Thett smiled. "I don't deserve a friend like you."

__________________________________________

SeventhProfessor and Romanii paused outside of the Palace gates.

"Are you sure you want to do this?" Romanii asked. "kbub's our friend."

"I know we said we'd stay neutral," SeventhProfessor answered. "But that was before. kbub clearly knew TUF would be assassinated." She glanced at Romanii. "This is real, Romanii. This is happening, and if we want to protect the people we care about, we need to tell them everything."

Romanii kicked at the stony ground. "It just doesn't feel right."

"Did TUF's death 'feel right?'"

Romanii didn't answer. SeventhProfessor nodded.

"Then let's do this."

The two entered the Palace, and the gates closed behind them.

I don't care about whether an ideology is "necessary" or not,
I care about how to solve problems,
which is what everyone else should also care about.

I love this series. I like how many different sub-plots you run. It'll be fun to see them all come together.

Oh, thank you! I really love your series as well. I look forward to seeing how it expands (and hopefully involves many of the other characters).

Haha trust me, I'm planning some pretty big things. I might have to make one of my episodes a six parter :P hopefully I can get it all done in at least a week and a half though. Preferably one week.
