I hardly consider that as taxing as what you and our friend have been up to.

[Besides, he had no time to find an entirely new set of clothing when they were only going to Coerthas to retrieve the Enterprise. He hadn't intended to remain long, though the Ishgardians proved to intend otherwise.

The papers on aetherial disturbances and primals are hardly surprising, but that tome, that journal... It captures his attention, and he cants his head in curiosity as he listens to her explanation. The fact that they were watched, and not by Garleans...]


Did you manage to find out who - or what - it was that was watching?
alisaie: (The land she mourns...)

[personal profile] alisaie 2014-07-26 02:19 pm (UTC)(link)
Then mayhap we shall have to view that differently.

[Pulling the Scions back together, aiding Doman refugees, and starting the Crystal Braves? That sounds like a taxing political nightmare to her, stubborn Ishgardians notwithstanding.

For a moment, she looks as though she was going to put a name to the watchful eye... But then her gaze falters, ultimately falling to the floor.]


That I did, and I could scarce believe who it was when we saw him. Nor do I doubt you will find my claims skeptical as well.

...Grandfather did not perish in the attempt to defeat Bahamut, but sealed him away deep beneath the land. After which he was tempered by the elder primal, alongside the White Raven.

[personal profile] alphinerd 2014-07-26 02:37 pm (UTC)(link)
Mayhap.

[All in a day's work, really. He hardly finds it taxing at all. ... at least, he won't admit to as much. Though he's scarcely had a moment to himself these past moons, it's keeping him busy. He wouldn't know what to do with an extended period of rest.

Alisaie's hesitation doesn't go unnoticed, but he's a bit hesitant to comment on it himself. If it is even enough to make Alisaie pause, there is doubtless good reason for it.

... though, the news itself is reason enough to make anyone go silent.]


... you are correct. It is hard to believe such a claim. [Pause.] You are... sure that it was not just overexposure to the aether?
alisaie: (Now open your eyes)

[personal profile] alisaie 2014-07-26 02:43 pm (UTC)(link)
[She looks up, and the look in her eyes - through the remainder of tears she'd already shed before the second terminal - likely was enough to answer for her.]

He slew the weakened creature that had once been Nael van Darnus then proceeded to attack me for attempting to stop Bahamut from regenerating. I have no doubt it was a phantom that taints our grandfather's memory.
alphinerd: ([14] believe...)

[personal profile] alphinerd 2014-07-26 02:52 pm (UTC)(link)
[That look in her eyes tells him all that he needs to know. His own, when he looks up at her, seem positively haunted. That their own grandfather should be tempered by such a fearsome primal as this...]

... there must be a way of freeing him from the bonds of Bahamut. I cannot bear to think that grandfather is suffering this way, after all he has done to save this realm...
alisaie: (These trials dissuade us not)

[personal profile] alisaie 2014-07-26 11:07 pm (UTC)(link)
That is why I've been scouring over his journal and the documents we still have here.

[She motions vaguely at her nice little collection of tomes and parchments.] Our friend and I saw in person that it is possible were a primal to relinquish their claim, however I doubt it would be so for Grandfather lest he were bound for the aetherial plane.

[Bahamut had relinquished Nael's soul when the adventurers defeated Deus Darnus... but she did not want to go in with the aim of seeing her grandfather die yet again. Not when there had been a glimmer of hope that he could be saved.]

[personal profile] alphinerd 2014-07-27 06:20 am (UTC)(link)
No leads as of yet, I take it.

[Or else her search would not seem so desperate. He appears troubled as he looks over the texts laid out before them, trying to recall if he's heard any tidbit of information that may be able to help at all...]

... or if the elder primal himself were defeated, mayhaps. I do not recall the reports of tempered beings' status after the affiliated primal has been felled. But... such an undertaking may prove to be too much even for our adventurer friend.

[He shakes his head. He certainly isn't going to allow their grandfather to die in an attempt to free him from Bahamut's hold. There is going to be no easy way about this.]
alisaie: (These lies betray our thoughts)

[personal profile] alisaie 2014-07-28 06:30 pm (UTC)(link)
None.

[Much to her frustration. She begins to glance down at the texts as well until her brother speaks up. She knew that tone, and it was a similar tone to what she'd feared were she to bring him up to speed.]

They grow quiet for a time, though the truly desperate begin to amass more crystals to summon them anew. [She pauses.] But brother, given the mechanisms and foul creatures the Allagan Empire set in place within Dalamud to keep the elder primal from being awakened it would be tantamount to sending most to meet with Thal prematurely. So far our friend and their companions have been our best chance.

[Alisaie offers her brother a parchment from beneath a tome. One mentioning Nael Deus Darnus, and its footnotes saying "deceased."]

These are the readings I witnessed firsthand at their last confrontation within the second coil. ...I'll admit that when I sensed Bahamut's power within Nael Deus Darnus, I afeared they would not survive. Yet they have, and they may yet have a chance against Bahamut were we to prevent him from regenerating further.

[But even that poses a great risk, and should they happen to cross paths with their grandfather once more... it might end in bloodshed and losing him once more.]
alphinerd: ([08] to lead those who walk after)

[personal profile] alphinerd 2014-07-28 08:13 pm (UTC)(link)
[It sounds as if, thus far, there hasn't been a method discovered to free those tempered from their primal god's influence... After all this time, he had thought perhaps Urianger may have come upon some way...

Still, his sister's words grasp his attention.]


It would be wise to dispatch as many as possible.

[For the first time since their discussion took such a dark turn, Alphinaud shakes his head, a smile touching his lips, if only momentarily.]

I'm beginning to learn we should never underestimate the Hero of Light, even if the situation seems dire.

[His eyes skim over the parchment, taking in those words. The last thing he wants to see is a similar parchment bearing their grandfather's name... The looming threat of Bahamut's resurrection is too much to ignore. This must be dealt with, if not for their grandfather's sake, but all of Eorzea.]

I suppose we set our sights underground, then.
alisaie: (Still deaf to our cries)

[personal profile] alisaie 2014-07-28 10:56 pm (UTC)(link)
[And this was the one reason she did not bring the matters of the Binding Coils up to him sooner. The fact that she was tired did not assist in the urge to snap in a physical sense.]

And leave the city-states vulnerable to beastmen and the remnants of the XIVth legion, let alone the current events in Ul'dah and Cartineau.

[Her eyes narrow, both hands firmly placed on the table. It's taking all of her willpower not to punch him in the face or point out the fact that he didn't care about any of this until she told him.]

The corrupted aether in the air and crystals would thin their ranks far too quickly to make any progress. Were they to survive that... Grandfather would be there the instance Bahamut senses something amiss within his sanctuary. That is how Nael Deus Darnus found us in the last foray.
alphinerd: ([05] The soul yearns for honor)

[personal profile] alphinerd 2014-07-29 01:31 am (UTC)(link)
[It's clear from the start that Alisaie has taken the alternate definition of 'dispatch'. Alphinaud would laugh, if he were keen on invoking his sister's wrath. It's hard to hide that hint of amusement, though.]

You take me for a fool if you assume I intend to send our allies down there, sister. I simply mean to rid the place of as many mechanisms and creatures as possible, to aid our friend and their companions.

[While she's rigid and angered, he's calm and collected, still glancing over the parchment once more before setting it on the table. It isn't that he didn't care... he simply finds his sister capable of her own investigations. And he's contacted her now, hasn't he?]

And, from your reports, sending any but the Hero of Light and party would be like leading lambs to the slaughter. The Crystal Braves are more than capable of handling any threat put forth, but I doubt such a hostile environment as that would do more than leave them neatly bundled on Thal's doorstep.
alisaie: (While our plight is repeated)

[personal profile] alisaie 2014-08-28 02:52 am (UTC)(link)
[She is silent for a brief moment, before slowly pinching her nose.]

Mayhap I am in need of more sleep than I had realized. Am I truly hearing what I believe I am; that you and I are of one mind on this?
alphinerd: ([12] well of purpose)

[personal profile] alphinerd 2014-08-28 03:31 am (UTC)(link)
[To this, his shoulders lift ever so slightly.]

It is a matter of our grandfather's very existence. I see no reason to deny that.
