5th Oration // Voice

[The voice on the Network is deep, portentous, and elegant. Like a Shakespearean lead speaking from the bottom of a deep, dark cave.]

There are questions I have been pondering, my friends. I have been learning more regarding the history and future of the Galaxy I hail from. The same divisions and mistakes seeem to occur and reoccur in a repeating pattern. Lasting peace and stability appear to be rather... elusive, shall we say.

[Count Dooku sighs for a moment at the tragedy of it all.]

Corruption. Conflict. Ignorance. Incompetence. Injustice. These and so many other challenges are inevitably found in any universe, and they often persist regardless of how strongly they are confronted. Which is why I am curious to hear stories of what you have done to change things for the better, whether in your own world or here as an imPort. What problems did you face? What successes did you achieve? What failures have you had to endure?

[The Count's voice becomes notably lower on that last question, intoning it like a ritual. It's called the Dark Side after all, not the Optimist Side. He pauses for a moment before adding, in a lighter voice:]

I am not thinking of these things purely for abstract reasons, of course. As some of you are already aware, I am organizing an... alternative event outside this month's Swear-In, in Maurtia Falls. While the government offers us the usual frivolous bribes and distractions in exchange for accepting their agenda, imPorts will show what we can accomplish with our Swear-Out. This rally will be a festival for those who desire another path, made possible through imPort food, imPort security, imPort entertainment, imPort organization, and imPort vision for a better way.

I urge all of you to attend, and to let your voices be heard. I am available to answer any questions you may have about this gathering.

[OOC: If this is your first time tagging the Count, check out his permissions post! Plotting for the Swear-In/Swear-Out on the 15th is here.]

What failures?

[Shinjuku comes to mind. He failed to stick with Mika, after finally finding him again. Or even years prior, with all but him failing to escape the underground city. But that isn't really what Dooku is asking, is it? No, he's...a success, which is why everyone is after him, with their precious seraph project. That's how he is -- or was supposed to change things.

Still, he shakes his head as he listens to the rest, not wanting to go into all that.]


Ah, I mean, this is new? A Swear-Out?

[ So far, Lando's only interaction with Dooku has been in regards to his newly founded business. He recognizes the name from Cassian's history, however. So this is the leader of the Separatist movement. ]

Most of the change I've accomplished has been pretty personally-focused, at least, until recently. Bettering myself, going "straight." I'm not exactly proud of the life I used to lead.

[ He sighs wistfully. ]

And I was successful, for a time. Until the injustice of my galaxy knocked on my door and I couldn't ignore it any longer.

I believe you know most of what I've been doing here. [ you know, bills for imPorts to eat, digging information the government doesn't give away easily, or just going to a Russian allied country and steal stuff.

Even back home, Dooku is probably the only one who knows kaneki is actively trying to bring forth a revolution for ghouls. He doesn't hide it but he never advertised it either ]


I'll be there. If you need my aid for anything, count, I'd gladly help.

Some of us are taking steps to reform our flawed legal system back home. There's a lot of work to be done, but I contribute wherever I can as a prosecutor who works for the state.

[There is a time and a place to talk about failures, but this isn't it. Even if the wounds weren't so fresh, Klavier has always been very careful with what he shares about himself.

Vulnerability can be useful under the right circumstances, of course. In show business, you quickly learn that people like hearing about your personal struggles. They help you connect with others in a very relateable way. On the other hand, with no constructive purpose behind it, too much commiseration can carry a host of other problems.

Klavier just arrived here, and though the safest route would probably be to observe from a distance until he gets a better handle of the situation, he can't help but engage with other imPorts.]


Herr...Dooku, is it? I'm curious. Do you believe the act of registration is synonymous with accepting the government's agenda? Or do you consider the registration system itself to be a frivolous distraction?

I ended a corrupt regime. It's difficult to continue a war when there is nothing left of the other side. Building lasting stability will be my next task.

[Coming after their meeting, Crane makes sure to address Dooku personally. His voice doesn't quite sum up his approval, but it manages to sound mildly curious as he injects it with a little bit of emotion. Though he is anything but curious at his heart. What others would call him, he couldn't care less.]

What a lively speech. Injustice seems a popular word with any audience, but in our case is it throughly justified?

So what are you trying to accomplish with the swearing out? Even if we reject the government's 'bribes', what do we gain from that? It's not like they're asking us to do anything for them in return. If anything, we're more under their control if we unregister, because our movements will be restricted.

For a long time I believed that peace was something we deserve and only be reached by peaceful means. [ Can you hear the bitterness? It's right there in the usually calm and thoughtful tone of his voice. ]

I feel that it's imperative to understand that there will always be forces that do not recognise a person's right to live in peace. It's a struggle, my friend, a true struggle... [ His voice is muffled for a moment because he's rubbing a hand over his face. ]

In truth, I believe the only way we can actually change the world, any world that we live in, is through the future generations.

[ There's a pause and a long sigh. He isn't done yet, but just shifting his gears. ]

A swear-out? I'd like to hear your reasons for this. I'll be honest, I'm not sure what to think about the whole registration business or the way the government deals with it.
