[Crane sends the address out at 3pm sharp. He stands hunched against a wall with a bundle of files in his arms. Those with an eye for detail might notice math problems on a public whiteboard on the right; peppered with numerous red corrections that range from simple corrections to veiled insults.]

What affect have our ambassadors had on our lives?

[He turns his attention to the camera, eyes hooded. His tone is calm and polite but with a measure of boredom to it.]

Do we possess the same rights as native people? Does the government provide adequate care? Is it safe where we live? [In Maurtia Falls especially.] Who enacts the laws that rule our lives? Who legislates for education and social security? Ambassadors are our representatives - yet they are intimately acquainted with the culture of our hosts. Does this cozy arrangement mean they are politically trusted because they don't ask questions and challenge official stories? In simple terms, what do our ambassadors do for us?

[His fingertips grasp his chin.]

Also, one last question: who amongst us might earn your future nomination? Count Dooku, perhaps? Now there's a man with a political mind...

[Koma-san June 2016. Never forget.]

Are you implying the Ambassadors have too little power to do anything, their every move stifled by the government, or that the ones we have lack the necessary nerve to do their job properly?

If the former, then there is little to no point in speculating about the next appointment as they will be as entirely useless as their predecessors. If the latter, then what character qualities does Count Dooku possess that brings you to suggest him?


[ Which, honestly, is one of the two reasons he’s responding; he’s been researching the man. The other reason is that someone told him that he should be “bffs” with Jonathan Crane and has remembered the name.

His personal opinion is that politics are useless, but there you go.

All of which are traits that sound good in theory, but any endeavour has to be put into practice. You've spoken mostly of his personality, but not of his actions. Isn’t the worth of a man how he acts and not what he claims? Politicians are already useless purveyors of empty words, surely there must be something he has done.

On your second point, I see we hold similar views on the political system. You evidently wish people to question their role, perhaps rightfully so, but I do have to wonder what your stake in the matter is.

[The voice that comes through the feed is odd sounding, like it was run through the very slightest filter to sound mechanized.]

Count Dooku.

[Now that's a name he knows. Not personally. But one didn't need to know him personally to know history. If, this is the real Count Dooku, that is, and not just an extremely strange coincidence. He'll have to eliminate that possibility before going further. ]

A friend of yours?

[He had done some light research into this world and it's politics, so far. But it would be a little more informative to hear some information from someone who apparently supports Dooku. As long as he can keep himself from blurting out the truth of why he's interested, he might get a better idea on a few things.]

[That's.....a whole lot of questions that she has no idea in which way to respond nor understands most of those keywords. What is any of that?]

Um, I didn't even know we had ambassadors representing us. And by your first question, their imPorts like us too?

[A slight pause.]

What's a...social security? Is it some kind of police force to protect us from the natives of this world? Because I don't really agree with that...

I can't speak to anything regarding ambassadors I've never met, but I don't think we can count on this world or government to keep us safe. We're uninvited guests they're sheltering because they want something from us. We're on our own.

[Those are all questions that Gemini wants answered, not trusting the Ambassadors or government in the slightest, although what holds her attention is the tone and thrust of the questions. What is it this man wants?

For a moment she considers taking another face to interact with him, but she's had quite enough of pretending to be someone else, so when the video clicks on it's her own face that stares coolly at Crane.]


That's a lot of provocative questions to be asking. Which makes me wonder what you hope to gain by asking them?

What a kind suggestion, Doctor Crane. I'm so pleased that you would think of me.

[While the Count smiles for the video, he does so with a hint of distrust in his eyes. Crane wouldn't do something like this out of the generosity of his heart: his pattern is to provoke, and learn from reactions. And an endorsement from such an individual is not necessarily of benefit to the Count's reputation, or his ambitions.]

While I have no immediate intentions to mount another campaign, it is not something I would rule out. Although I will say that I quite approve of the work Lord Ambassador Baelish has been doing in Maurtia Falls.

[Let them see how gracious he is, to praise his former opponent. And let Baelish see that Dooku is still an ally- for the Lord will surely have his eyes on this post.]

Knowing a guy like Dooku, he probably already has some super secret, government overthrowing plan in the works. Either that, or he's just going to bore all the politicians to death with that talk show he's got going on.

( well, this is interesting. working for ambassador baelish reflects less gwen's interest in politics or belief that he's making a substantive difference - she hasn't seen enough to say, if someone asked her - than it does her ability to land on her feet. baelish pays very generously.

but disinterest in the real merits of the situation is different from ignorance to its optics, so - she pays attention to the answers he's getting. hers is just, drolly: )


That's a dreadful thing to say about a person.
