The End

Once decisions have been made, Zo climbs up into the crown of the machine. It whirls about, and for an instant, the heart of it opens, where Ruana's mummified corpse sits where it always has been, hidden away. There's a feeling like being pulled--those who are going with friends will be pulled in the same direction, but those parting ways will see the others fade away around them. There's a feeling like floating and then like falling countless miles or maybe countless years-- And then things are okay. You're where you wanted to be. The last imprint of Animus is that of an empty world being torn asunder by a crying child, before that child is finally put to sleep. And now you can go on with your lives, or start new ones.



Maybe a day passes. Maybe a week. Maybe a month. It doesn't matter how long, what matters is that you are, if even for just an instant, alone. A door appears. You can open it, if you want. You can step through it, too--to a Tower that floats in a void. It's only five rooms high, but if you want, you can build it higher with the tools on the bottommost floor. You can make it into whatever you want. And you can go wherever you want.

There's a note on a table on the highest floor--a room filled with countless doors, surrounded by every gift Zo has ever been given, even the last.
If you can see this, I did it! I managed to save a little bit of the Tower. You can do what you want with it, and this floor lets you move between worlds! It takes a little getting used to, but you can even think doors into existence. It might take some work getting each door to go where you want, but you guys can do it!

Please be happy!

Zo


And if you want, you can go.


THANK YOU FOR PLAYING.

What exactly caused Dax to turn? I have been sitting on this question for a year! What did we, the playerbase, do that dragged the plot so far outside your original expectations?

(And thank you, so, so much for an amazing game!)

pardon the different account but!!

ok so when you say 'world-hopping' do you mean that they could go in and come back out into Mini-Tower? Or once they go in, they have to stay in?

What were some of the other possible endings?

What did Dax look like with the glamour down?

Did Jason have more than one dick this is an important question for science.

If a character is carrying something with them from the Tower when they are sent back home/to another world, does that item just vanish?

Also, what will happen to any pets they had in the Tower?

a). Tell us the thing you had been dying to reveal to us about the most, even if we've already learned it.

b). What was the most fun you had from a mod standpoint?

c). What was the original general outline for the plot?

d). What would the other endings have been?

e). What was Dax's True Form so I can do a proper portrait of him to go with the others? SCRATCH THAT! SAW IT ABOVE!!!!

Re: QUESTIONS

Soooo...what happens if, as a result of the progression of things in their canon/AU, time itself in a character's universe is reset? Would the mini-tower let them escape that to exist in the new timeline or would they be faced with the choice of going back and ceasing to be along with the rest of their timeline or suffering whatever consequences happen when you don't go back to your own world every now and then?

So what was the deal with those styluses that took off the collars, anyway?

Also, I think you once mentioned that there were endings where Jason could have lived. How would those have gone?

1. Okay so what *were* all of the lower floors of the Tower that we never got to see for?

2. This hasn't been asked ICly yet but it's going to be, Xion will want to take DJ/Dax's AI with her, will she be allowed to do so?

3. If the answer to the above is yes, and she were able to take him at some point to Space Paranoids/The Grid in KHverse would she be able to actually... get him out of the zip drive again/maybe even get him some kind of body? because hacking Xion can do, reverse engineering Tower technology to make a usb port capable of supporting Aria's futuristic usb not so much.

For characters who were dead when brought to the Tower and later dropped: would they have had the opportunity to say they wanted to continue living, or will their souls fade as their worlds are restored?

BACK YET AGAIN: what would have happened if one of the residents got their collar modified the way the rebel units did?

EDIT: AND ANOTHER: how does the universal translation work in the context of worldhopping?

NOW IN THE RIGHT PLACE

Probably dumb, but it will bother me if I don't ask...does anyone have their collars anymore? Does anyone need collars in minitower?

And was the fluid colour meaning ever actually revealed? I don't remember.

Sorry if dumb. >_>

1. Why was eating the oatmeal first necessary?

2. Would there have been any more/extra interesting effects if Shion any particular character had died enough times?

If Ruana's body was dead all along, then what about the Ruana who was running the Tower?
athousandcurses: (Cloak point)

Re: QUESTIONS

[personal profile] athousandcurses 2014-09-01 07:21 pm (UTC)(link)

  • So what was the deal with the shadows? Were they really the souls of the people from the character's home worlds? Or were they some sort of hallucination the souls inside the characters caused?

  • Was there any ending that would have saved Ruana and her world or was that always meant to be?

  • How did the crossover with Destiny Strings happen ICly?

  • Why did the monsters disappear at the end?

  • How did their souls get hooked up to the wireframe? What was the full process there and why did people start remembering and have awful affects happen?

  • What's the history behind the wireframes and the glamour? What were the scientists using them for?

  • When characters volunteered for Riki's soul energy extract process, did that kill part of the character's universe?

  • What did Zo do for fun in his spare time?

  • And just because I haven't seen it yet. SPACE WHALE. Where did it come from and why did it crash into the Toewr? (Are there more roaming around the multiverse?)

oh, one more thing - did Dax/Jason/Riki/Zo know they were made from Ruana's soul? Or did they work completely in ignorance of that fact?
