LAIVAN: Well- my instinct says that Murrit and I got what we needed-
LAIVAN: Sounds more like a complication on your end-
HANIEL: I do not know a Murrit, either
LAIVAN: I don't think anyone does-
HANIEL: It is near impossible to see the whole picture of someone when you can only rely on your own perspective
LAIVAN: He's the Time person-
HANIEL: So, he will be who you work with closely on your journey
LAIVAN: If you want to put it like that-
HANIEL: Do you believe that your association with him might be fated?
LAIVAN: Uh- That's a weird way of phrasing it-
LAIVAN: Definitely don't have any kind of interest in him- if that's what you're asking-
HANIEL: It is not
LAIVAN: Oh- So you just mean normal fate-
LAIVAN: Like the concept-
HANIEL: I did not know there was any other form of it
LAIVAN: Then nah- not really-
HANIEL: You are very full of surprises
HANIEL: Not once have you said what I expected from you
HANIEL: This is... new to me
LAIVAN: I just don't think fate is really a thing-
LAIVAN: Like- there's nothing that made me be here by force-
LAIVAN: Other than happenstance- And some meteors- I guess-
LAIVAN: But the point is- I made my own choices and they led me here-
LAIVAN: Same with him-
HANIEL: Fate might be much easier of an explanation for your circumstances
HANIEL: Does that not bring you any sort of comfort?
LAIVAN: I'm not a huge fan of the idea that I'm being controlled-
LAIVAN: That a part of me is locked into some destiny I have no say in-
LAIVAN: I'm just me-
HANIEL: That is shockingly thorough of you
LAIVAN: Thanks- I tried-
