Good old Memento Eden, huh.  I gather from the sea of general surprise and amazement that I'm caught up in some time traveling event or other.

Now if I was smart, I'd write out my life history and save myself the trouble of having to remember things as I go along -- But ten to one that would cause some sort of time paradox and screw up the world.  Dhaos had enough fun with that business, thanks very much.  Though on the flip side, maybe Cless and the others would have to come find me again.  Heh.  Anyway, I've got some better things to do with my time.  Namely . . .

Guardian of all space and dimensions, ruler o'er the ever flowing stream of time, I call thee forth from the ether in which you wait.  On the binding magic of this ring the pact was made -- Heed the call of the summoner, Klarth F. Lester!  Origin!

 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Demon of the fiery abyss; he who commands the hellfire, I call thee forth on the ring of the pact.  I am Klarth F. Lester -- Efreet!

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

I thought so. . . . . .  No contracts at all.  I'll have to start all over again here.

((Klarth is approximately 5 years in his future, from after the end of Tales of Phantasia, Tales of the World: Summoner's Lineage, and Narikiri Dungeon 1.  He looks exactly the same; his behavior is a bit more mellow after having settled down with Miranda. The 5% will go towards his full name and everything concerning his occupation.))

Fascinating; I haven't seen a form of magic that hasn't worked here before.

It's too powerful. I'm sure they wouldn't allow it. These are the powers that created my very world.

. . .

Er. Is that Erk?

Okay, I can see why you don't have them.

Ah... yes?

On the plus side, this frees me up to try out some . . . other sorts of contracts. Spirits aren't the only things these rings make pacts with.

Oh. Nothing. It's just that you were . . . different the last time we spoke. Umm.

Hopefully these secondary pacts won't turn out like the magic cannon.

Ah? What d- oh. Right. That.

Don't worry. I believe I end up giving up on that idea fairly quickly. I think.

Date: 2009-06-02 01:58 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
My, that was impressive! Too bad it didn't work. I highly doubt we can summon anything to the island, no matter how powerful we are.

Date: 2009-06-02 02:51 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Precisely! I shall have to summon things already here. Would you like to give it a try?

Date: 2009-06-02 03:14 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
All I know how to summon would be Espers, and sadly I can't even cast spells anymore.

Date: 2009-06-02 03:27 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Huh? You can summon as well? Interesting . . . Your world must be quite similar to mine.

But heh heh, I was just joking. I was asking whether or not you'd like to be summoned.

Date: 2009-06-02 04:02 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
I used to be able to, but magic is gone from my world now.

Me? *chuckles* Would you like to try, Klarth?

Date: 2009-06-02 05:10 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Gone . . . ? How so?

And of course. All you have to do is promise your unwavering loyalty and do exactly as I command. Making things explode would be a plus.

Date: 2009-06-02 05:30 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Well, magic disappeared from my world when we destroyed the source of it all. It's a long, complicated story.

I'm afraid I can't promise that. I have too many children back home that rely on me!

Date: 2009-06-03 08:07 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Hmm. Oh -- of course. Would it be a safe assumption to say that I am addressing the future Terra? No magic? Children?

Date: 2009-06-04 12:30 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Oh, they're not my children. Well, I suppose they are now, but only because they were orphaned and I'm taking care of them.

How observant of you! [Is she actually teasing him? Why yes, yes she is.]

Date: 2009-06-04 11:38 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
My, quite altruistic. Though, really, I'm not surprised in the least.

And yes, Terra, my keen observation skills are often well-observed themselves. For instance, your hair is a darker green and you smile quite a bit more.

Date: 2009-06-04 03:10 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
No? Why is that?

That's true, isn't it? I didn't smile much before. I suppose some things do change over time. You, for example - you seem to be more relaxed than I remember, even if you look exactly the same.

Date: 2009-06-05 01:03 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Hmm . . . You just seem that way. Almost a noble feel, if you don't mind my saying so.

That so? I suppose married life has settled me down a bit.

Date: 2009-06-05 04:15 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Me, noble? Goddesses, no! That's sweet of you to say, however.

You're married now? Congratulations! She's a very lucky woman.

Date: 2009-06-08 03:45 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Thank you. She was my assistant at my school . . . We'd known each other for quite some time.

Date: 2009-06-08 04:01 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
That's so sweet! I'm very happy for both of you.

Date: 2009-06-02 02:44 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Uh... that was supposed to actually do something, right, Professor?

Not that you didn't look really cool trying it(!), but... yeah... Huh.

Date: 2009-06-02 02:55 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Yes. Summoning is the most powerful of all mage arts -- And the only one normal humans may access. Unfortunate the spirits cannot come here . . .

Now, Lloyd! Have you been keeping up with your studies?

Date: 2009-06-02 03:14 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Mages, huh? Sounds pretty interesting, but it also sounds like something that'd go way over my head.

What studies, Professor?

I'm not going to school, yanno.

((OOC: Although he'll probably be convinced that it's worth his time eventually.))

Date: 2009-06-02 03:27 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
What? You mean I never got you to go to school in all the time I was here?

. . . I'm going to have to write myself a note about this.

Date: 2009-06-02 03:46 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
"In all the time"?
Er... but I haven't known you for that long. A month maybe?

...Awww, come on!! It's not like I'd get anything out of going to school anyway! I hear that after a certain age it gets harder to learn things, so all the teachers' efforts 'd be wasted on a guy like me!

Besides! I actually remembered some stuff! I don't need school! Although it probably isn't really helpful information in the long run... Just about my family and my "family" and where I live.

Date: 2009-06-02 03:52 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
That's right. That age is 75, as proved through conclusive scientific evidence. I didn't know you were such an old man.

Did you remember something? That's good. If I recall correctly . . . I hadn't remembered anything yet at this time.

Date: 2009-06-03 02:55 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Uh--!! I don't think I'm that old!! I mean I guess!? I mean it's not like my hair's turning white and falling out yet or anything, although I guess 75 isn't that old to some people...

Yeah, I did actually! I got stuck as a little kid about two weeks ago, and now I remember some of what happened. It's still a little fuzzy, but, I can remember Noishe and my dad, and a little about my parents, and Iselia.

You mean you've remembered stuff now. Oh, right... well, obviously! Those spells or whatever they were sounded like they'd be really cool if you could get them to work!

So you summon stuff, right?

Date: 2009-06-03 08:19 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Iselia . . . ? What a coincidence. Aselia is the name of my country. Anyway, if you're below the age of 25, you should be in school. Federal mandate.

That's right. Summon Spirits, to be exact -- Magical beasts, as well, though I've never done anything with those.

Date: 2009-06-04 02:41 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Really? That is a pretty weird coincidence.
Maybe the people in my world spelled "Aselia" wrong.

Federal mandate? Uhhh...

Summon Spirits...? Pretty advanced stuff, right? So are you gonna try summoning something from the island, Professor?

Date: 2009-06-04 11:42 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Of course! . . . if there was anything to summon. The only magical beasts I can think of are those exploding penguins and I'm none too keen on approaching the demoness.

Perhaps you're spelling Aselia wrong . . .

Date: 2009-06-06 03:25 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Hey, my spelling isn't that bad! "Iselia" is definitely how you spell Iselia. Aselia sounds a little different, so it's gotta be spelled different. I think.

Er... either way, Iselia. It's a little town in the woods. Lots of monsters running around, lots of trees. I think there might be a temple around but I'm not totally sure.

We have demons here, too?

Date: 2009-06-08 03:47 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
More than a single vowel difference, I suppose. Aselia is, like I said, an entire world. Monsters running around everywhere, too.

Of course. There are a few around. They're fairly obvious to pick out. Short and winged.

Date: 2009-06-03 04:36 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
...Yeah, that's some nice gibberish you're spouting there. So what would have happened if it had worked? What would this demon have done?

Were you just showing off?

Date: 2009-06-04 11:40 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Oh? Damian. I guess it's my turn to address you from the future this time around.

The summoning arts are a bit tricky to predict -- Normally, the Spirits would just show up and blast things to bits and pieces. In this case, I assume Origin would feel the urge to do something about this odd dimension. Perhaps erase it.

Date: 2009-06-04 11:57 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]

And I assume erasing the dimension would be very bad for those of us who live here?

Date: 2009-06-05 01:02 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Oh, no. I'd be perfectly fine.

. . .

That was a joke. Of course he wouldn't leave you. I don't think. Although you might all end up in my world, which might not be any more desirable. At least it's bigger than an island.
