@EURFOB: Long day's grace, Misraakskel.
@BOTZA-GUEST: Light bless you, Variks. Thank you for taking this time.
@EURFOB: You sound troubled. Confide. Variks will listen.
@BOTZA-GUEST: The Humans are… they are not as accepting as I had hoped. They cannot see us as anything but the things of their nightmares.
@EURFOB: Are we not?
@BOTZA-GUEST: I thought things would change.
@EURFOB: Kell you may be, but you have much to learn about being a Kell yet, Misraaks.
@EURFOB: Change does not come overnight. Not for Eliksni. Not for Humans. Change takes time, effort. Change hurts. Like first-molt.
@BOTZA-GUEST: I suppose.
@EURFOB: Suppose nothing. Misraakskel is too eager to forget the Wolves. Do you remember what it was like to kneel to the Queen of the Reef?
@BOTZA-GUEST: I thought the Humans would be different.
@EURFOB: Hope is hope, reality is reality. You cannot splice all things to be as you wish.
@EURFOB: No shortcuts here.
@EURFOB: No excuses, either. Not for Humans. Not for Eliksni.
@BOTZA-GUEST: I miss your counsel. You should visit, when things calm. Stand beneath the Great Machine as you did in the time gone.
@EURFOB: No. Variks cannot. That is then. This is now. My river does not flow backwards.
@EURFOB: Enjoy your victories, Misraakskel. Do not let the pain of now overshadow the promise of tomorrow.
@EURFOB: We should all be so lucky.
