While Bes is ashamed to admit to himself, let alone anyone else, that he had not called his East Coast faux family since the strange sickness, he is quick to pick up the phone once the news story hits. His own illness coupled with that of his young bride plus two small children... Well, he could be forgiven from being distracted. He, however, won't forgive himself.

So he picks up the phone and takes it to a quiet room in the small house he and Erato share with their sons and, as he waits for the phone to pick up, he paces... And mutters to himself.


C'mon. Oh, sweet God above, c'mon. Answer. Please...

So, as the resident physician, I know you're all very concerned about these symptoms. I assume you're all having them too? Surely it can't just be me.

Unfortunately, I'm at a loss here. I can't find a workable treatment, just methods of assuaging the symptoms.

I don't think we have any choice for a cure beyond the epicenters.

[Exactly who sent the message isn't clear. Except it's one of the Powers as the malaise begins to set in for the godlings]

Feeling it sinking in yet, godlings? Maybe next time you'll pay attention when you're given a task.

Remedy things, and maybe we'll go easier on you.

I must say, godlings. You're getting entirely too complacent. Too comfortable. Even altering your powers has done little.

I think I know what you're missing. What you've been craving. A good antagonist! An excuse to fight and shed and spill blood. Need I find your oldest enemies again? Consider it done. Give them a few days before they choose to show themselves properly, but I'm sure you'll know what to do.

He waits patiently despite the growing unease that Gaia dropped something in their lap again. What could you do, anyway? He already knew his wife was safe and sound. So was his unborn child and his step-son. He would have to call around to the others and check on them but, first, he has a very special little girl a happy birthday.

Hey! Is Meri around? I think I'm due to grovel about her present getting there late.

Godlings. So many of you. So good to see you working in harmony in these days. You are discovering yourselves, but you mustn't remain insular. You must know each other as well. Whether in amity or enmity, it is imperative to know well each other's strengths and weaknesses. Know what it means to walk in their shoes. Tomorrow at dawn, sweet children, you will find a greater understanding of your fellows. Use your newfound knowledge with care.

We will be watching.

Have all the Catholics of our number submitted their surveys for the Pope? They were supposed to be distributed through the individual dioceses, and they must be submitted to the church authority by tomorrow.

Really?

Okay, the first hour of this was cute, but really do you know how hard it is to tell your commanding officer you were late to a drill because you had to answer an email? Thanks for the K.P. Duty. What is this anyway, some kind of joke?

Hey guys, I'm pretty sure I'm ready to run initial beta tests on the combat simulator. Anyone up for being my guinea pigs?

Hey. The email wouldn’t go away, so I logged into the network. I get it. I get what you’re trying to do and I already remember, but I don’t really do fan clubs, so you can stop now.

How do I go about unsubscribing from this little family?

Hey, y'all, they finally got the fucking sanctions lifted and the contracts renegotiated, and I'm in the ring again!

Who all wants tickets? Front row, whoever wants 'em.

I know this is short notice and I'm very sorry about this. I feel like a complete jerk. But I wanted to let you all know that I've accepted a job out in Washington. I'll be moving out there before the new school year starts.

I'm sorry. I don't want to leave you all but it happened so fast and I have to.

I'm going to miss seeing Meri all the time. She's amazing and she's going to grow into a independent woman before I know it. I promise to visit as much as I can.

Circumstances have arisen, godlings. I need you up to the challenge.

Shadows have moved and struck in the dark. We were unable to catch them before it was too late. The ones responsible are known as the Sluagh. This was not our doing, and we will exact our punishments, of that you can be certain.

The realm beyond the Veil is not one we touch, however. The Courtly Queens must lead this chase. You do not need me to tell how vitally important is that we get them all back. Do not lose yourselves in the process.

The Greeks got the same message that we did and Ariadne found a likely location in California. Astarte has to be there. Persephone, too. They're going on the 21st. I'm ready to go, too. Anyone else coming?
[identity profile] guardienne.insanejournal.com
Gentlemen. I'm aware my sister is missing. We need to get inside the epicenter as soon as possible. When are you planning to arrive?

And don't forget the Wadjet. This will all be pointless without it.

[Bes is having trouble keeping his hands still, far too used to tapping out beats or doodling lines of music, but his hands already sport three band-aids thanks to such actions and he keeps one hand firmly pinned under his thigh while the other clutches the receiver.]

Hello? Seth? We have got to get this fixed. We can't let whatever it is keep Astarte. She's ours and Meri needs her and... This sucks.

Who the hell eats a salad and breaks out in hives--not to mention the fact I feel like my face has been stuffed with socks and hit with a 2x4...

The fuck...
[identity profile] guardienne.insanejournal.com
So... OK. Keep checking on our place. Found something. Looks like... maybe a keyhole of some kind? Kinda looks wadjet-shaped. So... yeah. Might be needing that.

Oh, and Bes? Simba says he approves of your new mate. Thinks she'll be able to provide you with plenty of kittens.
