(12:55)SansTheComic: ok, cards on the table. you've told me more than necessary as a show of faith, so i'm finally going to reciprocate.
(12:55)SansTheComic: i don't know.
(12:56)GodsOfOlympus: Hmm. That's disappointing.
(12:56)SansTheComic: before i get smited with one of your many banhammers, note that there's a difference between not running an experiment and running an experiment. both times, someone can say 'there's no evidence!' but, in the second case, it's justified.
(12:56)GodsOfOlympus: I wouldn't ban you for not knowing something.
(12:57)SansTheComic: alright... uhm.
(12:58)SansTheComic: in all the logs i've seen, the only mention of the nauticus i've seen was in passing, and it was in your own conversation with __RSPTN__ a while back.
(12:59)SansTheComic: either xeno isn't actually involved with whatever happened, they deliberately didn't tell me so as not to show their true colours or they simply ignored it for the sake of telling a story. either way, i suggest you check your reasoning.
(12:59)SansTheComic: of course, i can try to find out, and i'll tell you immediately if i get anything, but i'm not optimistic.
(13:00)GodsOfOlympus: Controlling the narrative is a vital skill for someone in a position such as ours. Nonetheless, I am... intrigued by your description of "telling a story".
(13:00)SansTheComic: you know, i'm not sure what i meant by that either.
(13:01)GodsOfOlympus: Well, nothing of it. From what I know of Xeno, she and the truth have had something of a falling out.
(13:02)SansTheComic: so you think she's lying?
(13:02)GodsOfOlympus: I think she wouldn't tell you what she was doing if it didn't suit her purposes, and unless you know where to find that ship, I can't fathom how she'd think informing you would be a good idea. Therefore, the fact that she didn't mention it shouldn't be taken as significant.
(13:03)SansTheComic: i guess that makes sense.
(13:03)SansTheComic: anything else i can help you with, in the meantime?
(13:04)GodsOfOlympus: Keep an open ear for mentions of Australia.
(13:04)SansTheComic: will do.
(13:05)GodsOfOlympus: I believe there was another part of this transaction.
(13:05)SansTheComic: your username.
(13:05)GodsOfOlympus: Yes. Do you know what came before the Greek gods?
(13:07)SansTheComic: the titans.
(13:08)GodsOfOlympus: Hundreds of timelines ago, an instance of me wrested control from a similarly multiplexed individual, as the gods wrested control from the Titans.
(13:09)GodsOfOlympus: I cannot say whether I made the right decision.
(13:10)GodsOfOlympus: While the entity I feuded with was unspeakably evil, I had no convenient Tartarus with which to imprison it. And so I was forced to exile it to a remote timeline instead.
(13:11)GodsOfOlympus: Where I thought it could do no harm.
(13:12)SansTheComic: sounds like it found a way.
(13:13)GodsOfOlympus: You need not concern yourself too much with the specifics. It is not something easily understood.
(13:14)GodsOfOlympus: But understand this. Gaia is no mere cosmic horror.
(13:14)GodsOfOlympus: It is a cosmic immune system.
