Uh... yo, Bonbon, Time Turner needs you. Says it's an emergency.
((Looks like we had this set to private responses! Whoops! if you send your asks in again we can post them publicly))
Soundproof his cell, so you can hear nothing from inside without opening it. Then lock him in with an endless loop of It's A Small World After All. He will be begging for mercy within the hour.
Instead of “its a small world” I am having Spike practice his saxophone music this way.
Well, given that he's not going to tell you anything willingly, it's either read his mind or coerce him into telling you. Generally speaking, coercion is several steps down the ethical ladder from spying and surveillance. It also produces much less reliable evidence. Mind-reading may be a violation of privacy, but in this case it may also be the lesser of two evils.
Yes, I think it might finally be time to consider this option.
Murder is the best solution.
"Is there nothing universally, inherently good?" Alas, if there were such a virtue, we could all be happy in this nasty world. But as for whether you can rely on anything, I quote a famous bard in saying, "To thine own self to be true." You can rely on yourself; trust in yourself, and in those who are truly your friends, and the rest must surely follow.
Hm… with that sentiment I think I will say goodnight. I still need to make a few more preparations for the plan to work.
Regardless of which of your friends might be Queen Carbon (if one of them IS the Queen, that is) I'd say that you should wait and see what happens with Harold Saddleton, AKA 0007. If you and Time Turner can convince him to return to being Time Turner's friend when this is all over, then you and the rest of "Carbon's" friends can probably get her to return to being kindhearted as well.
Hm… do you think it is more likely that Time Turner can convince the prisoner, or will it go the other way around?
is the plan butts? I hope the plan is butts.
There is a nonzero chance that butts will be involved in the plan.
Alright, current Bonbon is thinking about her actions, is learning from past mistakes, and is not sounding like a villain in the making. I think that's a good sign, but of course, only Bonbon can decide what's truly right for herself. Best of luck, wherever your path may take you!
Thank you, Mr. culithetroper.
Bonbon, how do you feel about the theory that Lyra is the changeling queen? She fits all the descriptions and assumptions made by Luna about the form the queen would have taken on. (she was in Canterlot during the wedding, ect.)
Hm… if she turns out to still be the Lyra I know then my feelings for her wouldn’t change at all.
But they have Lyra captive, don’t they? Wouldn’t they have some way of recognizing their queen?
So Bonbon... how do you *know* you're not Queen Carbon? I mean, sleeper agents are the Abberants' M.O., y'know? Still, even if you or anyone else *were* Queen Carbon, that wouldn't automatically make you the bad guy. I mean, heck, it might even be an advantage. See, I get what you're saying about trust, but you still need to prepare for the event that you or someone you trust is a Changeling Queen, and attack the assumption that that automatically makes said someone the bad guy.
Right now I see it as “things that will help save my friends = good”
"things that are in my way = bad".
So yes I think your advice is very good, Mr. wyaw. I will keep it in mind.
