-At the bookstore, a woman opens the door and coldly regards Longram-

Toya Hachijo: ...Mr. Longram. What a surprise to see you here.

Six: No, glassed planets. Nothing can live on a gas giant, the crushing pressure would pancake anything before it hit the surface of the pitching gaseous seas. I'm talking about planes that have had their surfaces melted into glass by Covenant lasers.

Toya: ...Yes. I'm presuming you're here to give the ones you collected so I can ensure they're never used again? Ever? Like you wanted me to?

The Lost Legionnaire
Six: -sigh- A "covenant" of alien races that were formerly lead by what we nickname "Prophets." They believed that the Forerunners, an ancient and dead civilization that came before us, had set them as next in line to take the galaxy, and treated found artifacts with respect. They also, once they saw us desecrating it, declared genocidal holy war on us, though that was also partially because they found out the Forerunners meant for us humans to be the next galaxy-keepers. Part of their religion centered on a series of six rings around the galaxy, called Halo installations, each of which was designed as a weapon to counteract an ancient threat called the Flood that wants to assimilate all life by force. If one Halo is triggered using an Index, all six Halos will fire and create extremely powerful gamma ray bursts, each with 250,000 light-years squared range, exterminating all life, thus starving the Flood into submission and defeat. -takes a deep breath- Satisfied?


Ghost: Actually... we're here to take the ones you have, though more or less for the same reason. That, and I'd like to snatch a few books.

Six: I forgot, they didn't want to exterminate all life, they actually believed that by triggering the Great Journey, that the believers would ascend, and that heretics would be left behind. They declared war on us because if word ever got out that we were the Reclaimers instead of them, the Covenant would ask questions and break apart.

Toya: ...

-Takes out her cane and lightly raps Longram on the head a few times-

Witless fool. Do you ever think before you get reckless with plans for "wishes"? Do you understand that the backlash from such a wish could cause such massive destruction that we could well have been better off leaving them in the hands of the selfish?

-Taps her cane onto the ground and sighs-

...I've watched you, you know. Oh, sure, you never bother to say anything to me, but I've heard and seen what you've done. Consorting with criminals...getting sidetracked by offers of money and moments of personal desires for revenge...and now, I see you've completely gone against the one thing you promised to do...ensure these keys are never used. Ever.

...So, you can understand how...hesitant I am in simply "handing" these things to you, at this moment, right?

-Turns around in the frame of the door-

Come into my store, for a moment, would you kindly? I think we should discuss this in a more comfortable position then just at the doorway.

-Walks into her store stiffly and sits at a chair, gesturing to the other ones set up inside-

Six: Frankly, I don't see why they just could've covered the whole damn thing up. I mean, it's not as if they had to kill us in response, but... evidently that's what those nutball Prophets decided. And my work allowed for a hero bigger than me to take the reins and more or less lead us to victory... Master Chief Petty Officer John-117.


Ghost: -nervous, though he doesn't show it, as he walks into the store, looking around for the Republic Commando books-

-The Republic commando books are pretty visible in the sci-fi section-

Toya: @Ghost ...They're twelve dollars each.

-Stares at Longram, Ghost, and everybody that came into the store-

...Well. You're here to convince me to hand these keys over to you, right? Go ahead.

-Makes a spreading gesture-

Convince me. I'll wait as long as you need.

-Sits back and sips some tea, waiting-

Toya:-Waves her hand flippantly-

Toss the keys into a dimension or area that would likely destroy anyone who enters it. The gates to that much energy can't be reopened if the keys are forever gone, no?

Toya: Just a suggestion. It could be a dimension where matter is too distorted into horrendous, unimaginable forms to allow these keys to be used as is. It could be a dimension where matter simply...doesn't exist. It could be any particular dimension like that. I don't have a preference.

You have an explanation for why this plan is unlikely to work?

Ghost: -sits down- Let me guess. They might find out a way to work around it, or stick in a clause that makes it only last for a short time. Or the sudden shock of things ceasing to exist could bring everything as we know it down, and hard.


Six: Still, controlling the weather... that's something I think humans would love to do.

Toya:-Shrugs-

I don't care. You're here to convince me that your plan is supposedly better. Or, at least, give these people that now seem somewhat untrustworthy to...simply hand these keys over because they want them. Sorry if this seems rather...harsh, but I'm not exactly sure where you stand anymore, and I don't know if my safety is guaranteed anymore...

-Looks over at Pinkie-

...They really told you nothing, didn't they?
