In which hello again.
Brandi: Thought you’d given us the ol’ kiss-off there.
Brandi: I expect much sexy sex to compensate.
Brandi: Right after I scarf these candles.
Brandi: Ohhhh, good candles.
Brandi: I think I’m gonna have a wax baby.
And then she exploded.
Confidence: That’s my name, don’t wear it out.
Confidence: How dare you barf up my big entrance?!
Confidence: People these days have no sense of-
Confidence: Yeah, ph’lngui to you too.
Confidence: So, how’s my favourite double agent doing?
Brandi: Oh, am I only double? Feels like more.
Brandi: Maybe it’s because I’m presently multiplying.
Confidence: Ah, the miracle of childbirth! Not into it.
Brandi: What do you want from me this time?
Confidence: Oh, still everything!
Confidence: More, if you’ve got it.
Confidence: I guess I wasn’t clear before! You’re supposed to be dismantling the SCIA. Like, reducing them to zero percent mantle.
Confidence: I realize it’s hard to do that in just a few years, but I also don’t care.
Confidence: I hope you appreciate my position re: not appreciating your position.
Confidence: I mean it’s fine if you don’t, I also don’t care about that.
Confidence: I’ll kill your baby.
Brandi: Like, automatically? Or only if I fuck up?
Brandi: Probably automatically.
William: I approve of automatic fucking.
Brandi: It’s back from work I’m… fro’…
Brandi: *barfs in dwarf whistle*
Brandi: I think you’re taking this “employee” thing a bit too far.
Brandi: So, I have some nonsense to convince you of.
Brandi: Can I interest you in a story about the SCIA being corrupt to the core?
Vanesa: Depends. Does it have original characters and author avatars?
Vanesa: And is it bullshit?
Vanesa: And am I going to be expected to act on it.
Brandi: Some of those things.
Brandi: Having a child has reminded me that there are more important things in life than spycraft. Like barfing!
Vanesa: You want to dismantle the SCIA because you’re barfing.
Vanesa: I mean I get it, but it seems like more of a you-thing than a me-thing.
Brandi: No, I want to dismantle the SCIA because the SCIA is ENTROPY.
Brandi: I know, it’s a lot to take in.
Vanesa: It’s not ENOUGH to take in!
Brandi: I’m a spymaster. I don’t have to cite my sources.
Brandi: Come on, join me. Every spy secretly wants to play Spy vs. Spy.
Vanesa: Both of the spies in that are bad spies.
Brandi: All spies are bad spies! We’re bad spies.
Vanesa: I guess we might as well be good at it, then.
Brandi: Great! Let me know when you’ve killed everyone.
Vanesa: I’m not going to kill everyone.
Vanesa: I’m going to investigate your claims.
Brandi: Aww, lame.
Vanesa: You’re acting pretty evil.
Brandi: I’m glad you think it’s an act!
Vanesa: Anyway here’s teleportation.
Brandi: Go forth, and do my dark bidding.
Vanesa: I can’t go forth with you in front of me.
Brandi: You’re too smart to make a good minion.
Vanesa: Thank you.
Vanesa: Whoever you are.
Brandi: If you figure it out, let me know.
Brandi: Oh, wait, I’m getting a call.
Brandi: WHO IS IT
Brandi: CANDLE BABY!
I liked your colourful pajamas a lot more.
Brandi: Yeah, well, I’m in morning.
Next time: wet work.
