    After a short time, they should reach the colony. It might just be their eyes, but the mist seems to twist itself into human forms, just out of clear sight, disappearing before they can get a good look at them.

    The city is almost perfectly preserved; there has been no looting, no decay, not even a broken window.

    An Unassuming Halfway House

    "I'll never understand his fascination with the Objects..."

    I shake my head to clear it, no good broadcasting my thoughts again. Got enough things listening in on a night like this without giving Them a free wiretap. We've known about the Objects for awhile now, ever since we first landed in the Nexus. The place is a goldmine, rich with oppurtunity, but Their stink is all over this place. If rumors can be believed then Legion, the Seekers like the one that put down Gregorovich, and even old Deadeyes call this place their home. It's time to stop standing around and gawking. It's time to tip the scales an inch back in our favor. It's time to walk into this place and see a nurse about a hipflask.

    Now if only I could convince my legs that.

    Arkinos will not stop jabbering in my ear now that he knows I'm on this path. All of those things that have drawn him to the Objects are at the forefront of his mind. "Don't you see... they are the only thing truly unbuildable... a wonder of the ancients... building blocks of the universe and the key to..." I pay him as little attention as possible. Let him find his own Object if he can muster up the courage to slink out of that hole he's building. This time it's all about me.

    "Just take a step, all you need is the first step, after that everything falls into place."

    I try to distract myself. I think about Gregorovich, and the new mess he's gotten himself into. I think about the mess I'm getting him into by taking this step. We all know which one of Them is in his sights. Its challenge is simple, and almost made for him. By the time I come back to my senses, I'm in the the building, and the receptionist is asking me something. That's my cue.

    "My apologies, I must have been daydreaming." at the same time I'm saying this I'm scanning her, physically and mentally. No name tag, but her thoughts say she's Sally, and that's good enough for me. They also say she's human, but it's hard to think of these people as human. Not when a simple phrase turns them into portals to the deepest hell a man can crawl into. "I wonder if I can visit the one who calls himself The 'Holder of Reverie'."

    Nothing is said. I'm taken by the "hand" and we begin our trek through the labyrinthine halls of this place. Already we're far away from where we started, but none of my senses can tell me where. I can only hope against hope that if the demons judging this can see through my disguise that it won't matter whether or not my body is a gel golem covered by an illusion. I may survive whatever they do to me if I'm found wanting, but I'm sure my sanity won't. I shudder to think what will happen to the others if one of us goes mad.

    By the time my little introspection it's almost too late. We're headed down a hallway with nothing at the end and in a few short steps that's where we'll be. I shut my "eyes" and trick my senses into cutting all visual input. Then I'm on a precipice. I speak out in a low voice, with a calm I'm not feeling.

    "Sally."

    And I'm struck. Feeling, motion, skin crawling and toes curling and all those impossible things hit my brain all at once. I briefly entertain the thought that I've done something wrong when it stops. And I open my eyes.

    My first thought is that she's beautiful. Not in the classical sense, not physically, but mentally. Her mind is wide open like a blanket, seeping into mine and smothering it lovingly. I could live an eternity in three seconds in this embrace, but I don't. Instead I study her, probing her mind as my "eyes" feast on her form. Her brain is like an open book. In its wrinkles and folds lies the infinite knowledge of the universe, all bent towards my care. She has seen more than any other, and yet she desires none more than I. It's a heady feeling. On her face she wears a mask of tragedy, just as I wear a mask of comedy on my soul. A more symbolic pair you will never find.

    She rests her hand delicately on my chest, fingers scraping gently on the edge of my conciousness. Her voice is like a choir of angels speaking directly into my mind. "I've been waiting for you. Are you ready?"

    It is nice. Better than nice. But I'm an old soul and I know a trick when I see one. She knows before I do what I'm about to say, but I say it anyway.

    "I'm sorry, but I won't." I stare past the mask, past the eyes, and into the devil that lurks within her. My answer is sure, and without doubt. But even still she asks again.

    "Are you certain, is there nothing that will-"

    "I'm Sorry, but I Won't."

    She smiles wearily, and her hand rises from my chest as she leaves the bed. Only now do I look about the room. It's rather generic, but peaceful. Sunlight is streaming through the window merrily as she approaches the dresser on the other side of the room. When she returns, she hands me the flask with a sad depth to her eyes.

    We wait in silence for the door to appear. When it does I walk into a room that is a mirror of the one I left. Only her absence, and my longing for her, marks it as different. But I lay upon the bed for a time, and for a time I rest. Then I sleep, and I dream.

    ---

    My Home

    When I awake my longing for her sits heavy on my chest. No... wait...

    I look down. There, sinking into the golem that is slowly breaking apart, is the flask. I quickly dismiss the construct, no need to get slime all over the bedspread, and levitate the flask up to rotate before my being. It's beautiful, slightly tarnished silver with delicate filigree climbing up the sides. On the front, embossed into the metal, a mask of tragedy stares out at me.

    Now comes the tricky part. Metamorphosis from an incorporeal form to a solid one is possible, but temporary and always extremely painful. By the time it's done I'm gasping at the rush of sensation as nerve endings construct themselves from nothing and flood my mind with alien sensation. But it's worth it.

    I steel myself, taking longer than necessary to clear my mind of the rush that comes with having cool air dance across your skin for the first time in decades. Then, just as I'm about to lose shape, I drink.

    I am now Object 440 of 2538, It is unknown what will happen when We come together.

    More than that, I'm Ceres Fiske. Waldorf, Jakob, Julie, Kharn, and now me. Fifth of the family to find a way back to the physical world, and now all I have to do is test it out.

    For anyone in plots run by me, know that I always tailor solutions to those in the plot. The answer may not be obvious, but it's there, and doable by the displayed abilities of the present characters. If you need help or hints, I'll try to be available to provide them.

    She slipped out the clip and replaced it with a different one. The bullets were made out of cold iron instead of the usual metal.

    A foul smell, like rotting flesh, suddenly wafts from the house next to them, along with cries of pain.

    After a moment, the cries subside, though not the stench.

    Finally, Elena flips the two pieces of metal on the magnum so it looked like a cross, making it into a holy weapon and perfect against undead.
    "Let's go do some excorcisms."
    She will then go towards the house.

    As she approaches, she can hear that they seem to be discussing the treatment of some kind of necrotizing plague.

    The stink intensifies the closer she gets.

    Tirin follows, and says "Is there any particular reason to do this? They're not hurting anything where they are."

    "The most common reason why ghosts are still around is because they have unfinished business. That's why we're going to either find out what it is or we'll exorcise them so they can move on that way."
    She begins to listen intently on the conversation.

    It seems that they're trying to figure out a cure for it, or at least something to slow it, but they don't have anything.

    She might be able to guess, given the extreme pain the disease would have caused, that these might simply be psychic residue of the experience.

    The smell was bad before, but as soon as she opened the door, it intensified greatly. It's probably easily enough to make her throw up.

    She can see some sort of medical kit attached to the chest of a man with half his face rotted off, though the other half is fine. He's twitching, though he's probably drugged.

    Elena grimaced. She had to concentrate to not throw up, but at least this wasn't as bad as some of the things she has seen before. She tried to listen to the conversation again.

    They seem to have come to a decision while she was concentrating on not throwing up; they start to load the rotting man onto hovering stretcher.

    They should eventually arrive at a hospital.

    The bullets, since they can presumably interact with ghosts, bounce off the machine. (Or go harmlessly through it and the man, if they can't.)

    The figures around him turn in her direction.
