The mad scientists vacates the building before blowing it up.
After receiving a missive from Miss Alter suggesting we should meet with the prospect of putting this ugly suspect thing behind all of us I returned her missive with an owl of which never found its way back with my response.
The Baron had intended on listening in as a liaison for the meeting but this day he was not to be found. I asked Tensai to stand as witness and she readily agreed. Today this evening in the confines of my unfinished office I sat down with Miss Alter, Cato Quan and Tensai.
Lunar: Perhaps, as a sign of goodwill and gesture you could let us examine the silver you have and its usage in your labs.
Malegatto Alter: I...well...melted the bar down
Lunar: What is the silver now?
Malegatto Alter: The silver? Oh. In my gun?
After informing Miss Alter that the act of her creating silver bullets would hinder her standing into this investigation than help it she agreed to give me a sampling of her silver so it could be tested and her name would be cleared as a possible suspect in any future dealings.
She produced this odd thing:
Malegatto Alter: A spork
TotalLunar Eclipse examines this 'spork' wondering what its significance is
Malegatto Alter: Well, I "was" going to gouge out one of my rude neighbors' eyes with it, but decided against it
Cato Quan: I t will revolutionize cutlery as we know it
Lunar: Yes so it is aspoon that cannot make up its mind to be a fork? Or is it a fork that cannot make up its mind to be a spoon?
Malegatto Alter: Scoop AND stab!
Observations on 'spork': a short range melee weapon used to decrease an opponents visual sense
Lunar: We welcome a bit of insanity from time to time, those explosions really leave a beautiful sunsets.
Malegatto Alter claps her paws...I do so enjoy a good explosion!
Tensai Hilra: yes, we have a policy now of removing old buildings... forcefully
Cato Quan: Do you vacate them fist? I don't.
Tensai Hilra: usually...
It became evident that having two mad scientists in the same room = trouble.
Malegatto Alter: As much as I would've loved to have taken a few shots at him(the sheriff), it was not I who did it.
Tensai Hilra: from your reputation, I would have hoped better aim anyhow
Malegatto Alter looks at Mr Quan...I like this one. Heh.
Lunar: We shall keep this non aggression pact
Malegatto Alter: I shall try to keep from attacking Steelhead and its citizens for the time being...more or less...maybe...kind of I'll try
Lunar: Well its the thought that counts.
Tensai Hilra: it's all we can ask for
Cato Quan: Unprovoked attacks
Tensai Hilra: well I wouldn't expect you to take abuse, but please, don't destroy any permanent fixtures at least that's my rules I have to adhere to
Malegatto Alter: Mot even a "part" of the dam? A teenie weenie part?
Tensai Hilra: no. it needs to remain intact
Cato Quan: offshore whaling rights?
Tensai Hilra: ahem... why not! it's the 1890's we'll never run out of whales!
Cato Quan: I can pack it as tuna in New Taloo! Salt it for sale in caledon
Malegatto Alter: It keeps my lamps pretty bright
Lunar: its the only way to keep those dolphins safe
Cato Quan: Use the oil to light up babbage
Malegatto Alter: I believe we have covered everything I am satisfied with the terms of the agreement Especially as...
Lunar: So, for now a mutual truce
Malegatto Alter: Yes. For NOW
She says 'for now' but what about later?
