The bane and lynchpin of far too many plans it seemed.
If anyone answered his question, things could lead to the unfair. But if people ignored him, things would continue on with Morgan's likely victory. Should then, Luc answer? Invalidate everything he was working towards? No, no he would not.
And no one else would answer the other Directus trooper within the Crimson ranks. Conrad was the first to speak after Fargo's question. Not that he knew the answer, but he didn't second the question either. What he did say was more shocking and relevant. Luc had assumed that since Viveka had chosen him, that his vote would place for himself as well. But it seemed that assumption rang false. A good lesson to learn again. And perhaps... Conrad's unclear vote could also mean that it was possible for Damian to switch his if so inclined?
Hmph, it seemed he was aiming for leadership more than he realized. Or, was he simply realizing options? But moving on from that, Conrad asked for clarification on whether they were moving for a true commander or a simple representative. Again, though he didn't say it, Luc's plan was to wait for the votes to be totaled, get the opinion on everyone in better detail before making a complete vote. But it seemed he would have to push his goal up a bit. They were close enough to the end that it was less important to wait at least. He would wait until those who wanted their say spoke though, as Conrad continued detailing what he thought Luc's voters wanted against Morgan's. While Morgan was
impatient in the meeting, he certainly could not blame her. Especially her interactions with the obnoxious one. Even Luc's patience had been stretched, and he had not even spoken with the man.
Viveka debated against her superior's opinions a bit. Morgan was too aggravating, Luc himself did not have her trust. She pushed for the General again, but it seemed the Crimson Ax-Wielder's patience was wearing, as he made it clear that he could only lead trained soldiers. The Crimson Group was made up of too many varied professions for any regimented plan to work. They had to rely on cooperation with their fellows to get things done, and not strict military discipline. He gave some time for his subordinate to reply after, but she did not take any, so he continued on. He parroted Levski's statement about someone from outside the national boundaries to be leader, "inclining" to put his support behind the Morgan and Levski plan. For which the druid clarified a bit and officially put herself as leader and Levski as representative.
"Once the votes had been tallied," Luc entered back into the conversation. "I was going to ask of each participant the greater specifics of what position they were voting their choice for, and their reasons for thus. There are," Luc took a glance at Charlotte, "other, important matters that need discussing as well, so I was going for expedient over depth until things were settled. We could switch, perhaps, if people agree somewhat, or continue the current discourse." It was little more than filler or blind luxury until the last votes collected.
CHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASE! is not an npc
That uh, one guy asked some question about some other leader. Errr, wait that was to Alex's command right? Uh, after her vote for Luc she said... leader of the Big 3 and other leader. So that was what the beard guy was asking about? Guess that new guy would have to go through Morgan then. But what was that first leader of Septimus thing? The Prince guy, right? Oh, did that mean his parents were gone then? That had to suck. But shouldn't he leave if that happened?
HUH!? Chase's eyes shot wide when he heard Conrad give his recommendation to Morgan. Not that he didn't appreciate it... but Viv really brought up a good point. Why wasn't he picking himself? His former General gave his explanation. Well, that was kinda like every one who was voting for Morgan. Kelas probably, she didn't trust Morgan but she trusted militaries less and Morgan would always be devoted to making sure Arrin was safe.
Luc afterwards gave a little bit of a continuation of what Conrad was asking. Morgan had pretty much won already, and he hadn't really talked about his decision, so he should give his opinion. "Well, Morgan's led us this far just fine," Chase said. "She can only improve if Lev's helping her too. And we all know there's no one who cares more about Crimsons or defeating the demons." Chase looked around a bit. "And uh, even if she has to deal with stuffy nobles she's kept us in line just fine as well. A bunch of fops don't stand much of a chance. Uh, current company excluded." Chase took a little breath. "And uh, even if Luc can guarantee, uh, complete? Support of one of the Big 3 there's no saying the others would fall in line, right?" That last part was more question then statement. "And wouldn't like, that leader in the party have control over him or something?"The Fargo
Annnnnd he was ignored again. And since Captain didn't tell him to shut up, that means he was now part of some plan he had no clue on. That was always fun. "Go ahead," Fargo slumped down. "I'll just wait here like always."The UnimportantBoss and Mom and Jerk and NobodyClassic Literature
