    Did Pixel want to open every Pandora's box, only to whine like a child when things swept out of control? Suggest a castrated Hierarch, and moan when all oppose the idea. Bring up an accusation between magi, and freak out because dealing with it took longer than he wanted.

    And lastly, restrict yourself so that a trial can be argued against.

    On top of this, Anima's argument was full of holes. It was an agreed plan to burn the place down. How was it easier to explode a microwave than simply tell everyone not to blow it up?

    "Councillor Pixel, if that is your condition for a trial then allow me to save us all some time - no-one was injured." What? Star just said she was there. Arrows look for these things. "The agreed course of action was to destroy the house; either Magus Anima impulsively tried to execute the plan with the magi inside in which he fortunately failed, or as he is now claiming took a different plan into his own hands without communicating it to anyone. I would like to know which. I vote yes."

    Oh no! And I have to watch Kaze. Guess someone else will have to do the investigation. Oh, well that sucks, for.... somebody.

    Nimbus

    Dark shadows scatter in ordered symmetrical patterns traversed by a crackling pallid silver light that wraps Winter in a pleasantly numbing and icy coldness.
    When vulgar magic is cast, the frequency of the oscillation of the dark fluid surges until the shadows arrange themselves in a solid black halo around Winter's head, the white light darkens into a fiery black sunlight and his eyes are set ablaze with vivid incandescence.

    Another round of snitching, another session of butting egos.
    Bear to mind that none of the other two witnesses being mentioned dared to speak of Anima's crime, it was only Star and at the very end. Anima had been a Councillor until then, and they were all okay with that. Figures.

    Who could have thought that a bringing a surgeon to the battlefield would be a bad idea. Color him shocked.
    "Yeah, the Doctor is nuts. But the fault rests on the shoulder of the adult who left a loaded gun on the table or on the toddler's who accidentally shot himself?", it's a vivid image. Far too vivid.
    And with that and a sour mood, he's ready to call it a day.

    The sound of dialing numbers (phone, keypad, rotaries, calculators) echo in the ears of those in close proximity. Shimmering gold lettering take the form of flickering mathematical symbols that form complex equations in the air.

    The evasion was noticed, yes, and he had no doubts about a much later conversation. But that would be pushed to the side for this mess that has now been laid before him. And now the cat was out of the bag and another case sat here for them to adjudicate.

    The minor inconvenience of yet another Trial was far outweighed by the ire of those who would protest a lapse in Justice !

    "I vote yes."

    He really hadn't much to say at that point. It was a clear enough grievance. Although, he did hazard a small smile at the Guardian's derision.

    Wow, oligarchy made him hungry.

    "If that's everything accounted for, I am down to adjourn and have lunch."

    Fucking. Hell. Anmia. Fucking. God. Fuck. Shit. Fuck.

    was it too late to hang up her shaman hat and get a new one?

    She needs more then a banh mi. She requires spirits. Hard. Liquid. Spirits.

    There are reasons she didn't want to be on the Council, and there are reasons why she didn't want to be on the Council.

    This train is leaving the station, isn't it? How does a 'yo watch out' turn into a Grand Jury Indictment? Easy. The same way 'yo zip it' turns into jail time for Kaze. Who says history doesn't repeat itself?
    But maybe it's an opportunity for Anima to be honest instead of changing his spots constantly. Lying. Stealing words he never had to pose as his own. And then there's Winter, positing that letting someone breathe and walk around is 'giving them a loaded gun'. Which kind of explains a lot about Winter.

    "Weeeeeeeeell,"
    the Illusionist stands and wheels around to leave with a last look for Winter, "Definitely not the adults sitting in the time out corner for being scared of Shodan."




    Seriously? Really?
    Unless stopped, Star exits. Feel free to take any parting shots~

    Well, wasn't this a trip?

    Though tripping into what was up for debate.

    This Consilium. She could write books about this one meeting. Another time, perhaps. Right now, things appeared to be wrapping up, and she had things to do. Prepping for trial, debriefing Igor, probably having a few drinks. In what order remained to be seen.

    Naga gathered her belongings, including the folder from Igor, and awaited for the meeting to come to an official end.

    "Then the council will investigate, I guess?"

    It's hard to speak confidently when you ask a yes or no question and people say they know the answer and vote yes when their answer invalidates the question. This is why the question was yes or no only for the public.

    "Otherwise we're good to go. Meeting adjourned, be awesome, don't kill each other."

    He doesn't even bother with eye contact on his way out, but a soft chuckle escapes as Star calls Winter and his faux wisdom out.

    Pixel exits the scene.
