[Accidental video]

[The camera shows Dana sitting by the Northern Gate in her makeshift camp, which pretty much consists of her sleeping bag and a few things scattered around. The girl looks really tired, leaning against the edge of the gate with her eyelids drooping. She's still shielding, though, as evidenced by the faint glow around her and the gate, but it does seem to be flickering rather than holding steady.

[All of a sudden a young man who bears some resemblance to a rat appears out of nowhere, his clothes on fire. He walks towards Dana, muttering, taunting her about killing him and not deserving to live. At first she cringes back, but well before he reaches her "camp", he's suddenly brought to a stop by a glowing shield.]

Stop.

[Her voice is tired, but it doesn't waver.]

You're dead. You tried to kill me, and I ended up killing you. It was an accident, but it happened. I'll have to live with that, but I've accepted it. It's not how I would've wanted things to turn out, not at all, but it's how it ended.

Maybe I didn't deserve to live any more than your other victims, but it's not my fault that they died and I lived, it's yours. It's your fault we'll never know just who they were or how they died, that their families won't get proper closure, but you'll never do it again.

[She stares straight at him.]

You're just a personal ghost. You can't hurt anyone anymore. Go away.

[And with that, the strange man does disappear, as suddenly as he arrived. Dana breathes a sigh of relief and slumps back against the side of the gate, letting her shields go back to just outlining herself and the gate as she does.]

... [Oh boy.]

The Aeon. How long has this been going on?

It's the nightmare I have most often.

[Waaaait... she wasn't asleep and they saw that...]

That wasn't just a dream, was it?

[Shakes her head. Nope.]

So, it was real, then. Or was it?

[She looks away, at where the apparition had been.]

No way to find out now, except with a repeat appearance, which I hope doesn't happen.

[Looking back at the communicator screen.]

You think- it's the Aeon's doing?

[ After her tedious travel up to the Northern gate, Charmcaster comes upon a girl. Bearing in mind she has no idea what Dana looks like, she assumes this just might be her. ]

[ She approaches slowly behind Dana. ] Uhm Dana?

[Tired nod to acknowledge the other girl.]

Yup, I'm Dana. Charmcaster?

Yeah, that's me. [ She flashes a smile before looking concerned. ]

You okay? You look...drained.

[Action; dated before Charmcaster turned up.]

[Eric and Max had walked from the Holiday household all the way toward the Northern Gate, where Eric had been told by Charmcaster that this Dana girl was who would be able to get him and his dog into Kalliste. He immediately notices a girl, one whom he swears he spoke to once before via video, and approaches her.]

Excuse me, miss? Are you Dana?

[Even if Dana hadn't seen the two approaching herself, she definitely noticed Ghost getting more antsy. Because of the dog, maybe?]

Yup, I'm Dana. Eric, right?

Yeah, that's me. We've spoken once before, right? Anyway, I was reccomended to see you by Charmcaster. She says you can get me and Max here to Kalliste.


[Nod]

When you first arrived, and when you went deaf...

[Blushing a little.]

I'm- not exactly a guide, just watching the gate. It is pretty simple; like Kergan said, just point the arrow towards Kalliste and walk through.

[Pause, considering...]

How are you and Max with cats?

[Sanji tenses immediately at the sight of this man approaching Dana, and was about to run out to her to help, when she stopped him with her shield. He bit down on his cigarette as he listened to her confront him... still tense, but waiting to see, now, how she would handle this. When the apparition disappears, a small, proud smile turns up one corner of his lips.]

Very good, Miss Dana. I knew you were a strong lady. Do you want anything to eat, or drink? Some company? You need to keep your strength up.

Thanks.

I'm fine for company; got Ghost here, and Charmcaster should be arriving soon. Food would be good, though; what I've got is getting monotonous. Something that doesn't go bad, so I can keep duplicating it.

[He's glad she isn't alone. He's not so glad for the comments on her food supplies, though.] I'll bring up some food that I have stocked in the south here. I have some frozen soups and stews. They just need to be dethawed, add a little water, then re-heat. If you can... duplicate the frozen soup, I think you should be good? So long as you have something to keep the soups frozen with you. I also have some fruit tarts that should be able to last a little while...

I don't have any way to keep them cold... right now, at least. I could try to make something, but... I don't want to strain myself, creating a freezer and some way of getting electricity all the way out here.
