Zelda's Notes - Tower of Animus


- Fellowship Delegation stuff

- Jason's Q&A, May
     (To be filled in later)

- Dax's Q&A, November
     (To be filled in later)

- Ruana's Q&A, November
      - RS917514
           - What were they testing?
                - Not everyone can walk
           - What were the noises in the background?
                - Interference, caused by "too much pressure in the room, probably" & psionics
           - How did she go from test subject to administrator?
                - "They killed themselves," refused to answer when pressed if her powers had something to do with their deaths
           - Feed ended poorly - pressing questions Ruana does not wish to answer is ill-advised.

      - SM1449668
           - Mentioned files like these being put up a long time ago, "when all those people thought they could be going home for real" - Ruana put them up
           - "Who are they? All those people trying to speak up at once and they just don't shut up and--" ???
                - "It's okay, that's how it was a long time ago. I was only zero-three-seven, right? But they're dead now so it's quiet, mostly."
           - We are the only ones who don't die - "Why are we able to come back?"
                - "Probably because you're here and not at home"
           - "The collars don't keep us alive, they keep us here. Yes or no?"
                - "It's both"

      - Enoch
           - "If you weren't walking, what were you using to move, back then?"
                - "Psionics"
           - "The noises that were captured don't sound human."
                - "Some of them were, some of them weren't."
           - "May I ask what the ones that weren't were, and where they came from?"
                - "My psionics are dangerous, especially walking."
           - Topic change: bodies and spirits, "you have bodies and spirits"
           - "Do you have any idea why this place might be called a 'tower of souls'?"
                - "I didn't name it. Maybe that's what it was researching."
           - Was? What does it research now? The destruction of our worlds?
                - "Dax really wants to fix it. He's not lying, you know."
           - Do you have a better idea of what caused the destruction?
                - "Yes. No. Maybe."
           - "What is your best guess?"
                - "A lot of power. Pushing."
           - "How long has it been since the destruction started?"
                - "A thousand years."
           - Ruana is older than 1000
           - "Do most of you live that long?"
                - "It's based on powers."
           - "Do many live as long as you do?"
                - "I don't think so."

      - HM1753571
           - Why is she "quiet usually"?
                - "I get tired so I have to sleep a lot."
           - "What makes you so tired, though?"
                - "I don't know, I wish I did because maybe then I could be awake more."

      - ER1523463
           - "Who was experimenting on her? Why?"
                - "Tower."
           - "That little boy, the one in the control room. Is he like you?"
                - "I like Zo, he's my favorite."
           - "Is he as strong as you are? Does he have the potential to be?"
                - "Sort of. We don't do the same things. So maybe he can't run as fast as me but he can jump higher. Something like that."
           - Why does he listen to you? Because he has to or because he wants to?
                - "Both."

      - Zelda
           - "You have a strength unusual to your kind."
                - "That's why I was picked."
           - To what end?
                - "This tower's ends."
           - They put you in charge of the Tower?
                - "No. Well, sort of. It was an accident."
           - What were they planning for you to accomplish before the accident?
                - "It worked."
           - What worked?
                - "What they wanted to do. It worked."
           - Ruana refused to clarify what she meant
           - Other recording is a prayer she used to say for whoever taught it to her, but she forgot who they were.
           - At the suggestion of looking through old records, she said she would "have Riki look," stating she did not "want to remember the wrong things."
           - "Memories are just that - images you have kept over the years. They cannot hurt you any more than you allow them to."
                - "They can hurt. So I forget them."

      - Ganondorf Dragmire
           - Foolish man.
           - Offshoot conversation asked, "were there a lot of others?" In the experiment?
                - "At least 37. At least zero-three-seven."
           - Were the other administrators experiments too?
                - "No."

      - L1700690
           - Brought up footage of the boy who had his collar removed; "You'd die without [the collar], it's like losing too much blood."
           - Why do we need the collars?
                - "You're not in your own universe. People need suits to go into space, right?" ???
           - Does that mean there's something poisonous about the Tower?
                - "Metaphorically," refused to elaborate
           - Nature of death came up; Ruana insisted that we don't actually die. Never came up with a name for it, but likened it to "breaking."

      - LS1405328
           - Not much of note within the main line of questioning
           - Offshoot conversations, however, reveal the Tower's official name to be "Tower Designation Animus," or "Tower of Animus."
           - It has always been called that, for as long as Ruana can remember.
                - (Which might not be very long at all, given her penchant to "forget")
           - One of the meanings of 'animus' is apparently "soul."

      - SK1651874
           - Why are they doing this?
                - "Research. All towers are for research."
           - There are multiple towers.
           - Offshoot conversation: How long have you been watching us.
                - "Years."
           - Zo is the one who brings people here; It is easiest to contact him when Jason's in charge.

      - OH1729357
           - Ruana is from this world, but wasn't born in the Tower like the rest.
           - She came here from "the door."
           - "Is it safe to use the door to leave?"
                - "No. Not for us, or for you."
           - There are "not human monsters" outside.

      - JS1651862
           - Nothing particularly noteworthy.

      - KV1152346
           - How badly did you hurt them?
                - "They did it to themselves. Even if they didn't."
           - Why not leave the place when everyone died?
                - "It would get lonely."

      - JS1481674
           - The "door" is at "the bottom."
           - There is a city outside. The people there are "not exactly the same" as the admins.
           - We would apparently die if we were to go to the city - truly die. The only reason Ruana gave was was because "we shouldn't be here."
           - Ruana was kept in cells like the ones on Floor 43 - the actual cell she was kept in still exists, but she "doesn't go there."
           - When someone offered to remove her number from the cell, she refused, saying "It would just put itself back on."

      - B1254015
           - Nothing particularly noteworthy.

      - NT1609155
           - "Is there a connection between why our worlds are destroyed and what happened during those experiments?"
                - "I don't think so."
           - "Do you know why our worlds were destroyed? Or any idea?"
                - "Yes."
           - "Would you be willing to tell me why, if I ask you the correct question?"
                - "I forgot."
           - "What year is it here?"
                - "1000? 1001? Maybe. It changed and I lost track of it."
                     - The 'virus' started 1000 years ago. Started here?
           - Ruana refused to answer "1000 after what?"

      - Majora
           - Majora is doing well.

      - CS1186421
           - "Nothing ever changes, does it?"
                - "Some things change."

      - Madoka Kaname
           - Some talk about the costumes; does she truly not understand how her games cause pain?

      - A1726335
           - "For our supposed rescuers, you guys are pretty messed up, aren't you?"
                - "They don't know a lot of the things I know. Don't be too mad at them."

           - Nothing particularly noteworthy.

      - M1503961
           - Nothing particularly noteworthy.

      - BT1162897
           - Nothing particularly noteworthy.

      - L1601008
           - "Were the experiments cruel?"
                - "Yes. It hurts to use psionics more than you're used to. Like using muscles you haven't used in a long time."
           - "I was awake all last month so I'll sleep for a while."
           - "When you're awake is when you watch people, right?"
               - "I can watch when I'm asleep."
           - Does any of what you see give you bad dreams?
               - "You can't dream when you're watching things."
           - So dreaming is one thing you've never watched?
               - "I don't like it when I dream. That's why I watch."
           - What about just resting then? Not dreaming or watching?
               - "I can't do that."
           - "Watching means no dreams. So I like watching."

      - KI1717465
           - Nothing particularly noteworthy.

      - Legolas
           - She says she doesn't know why she sleeps so much.
           - If we want to help expedite the process of returning home, we should ask Dax, she says.

      - JS1649538
           - Nothing particularly noteworthy.

      - GK1621949
           - Nothing particularly noteworthy. (What is "soccer"?)

      - KT1520149
           - Nothing particularly noteworthy.

      - SG1161858
           - Ruana can "make herself forget."
           - "How?"
                - "The same way I do anything else."
           - "Lucky you then, for being able to forget that easily."
                - "I had to learn how first."

      - LF1381104
           - Nothing particularly noteworthy.

      - NB1714471
           - Managed to get Ruana to use the voice function; she seemed like she was far away from the terminal
           - This girl is talking about organizing a welcoming committee - should find her if I get the chance.

      - EZ1622964
           - "You said that Jason runs the experiments here, right? Why do you let him do that?"
                - "Jason is Jason. He needs to be Jason."
           - "What happens if he isn't Jason?"
                - "Then he shouldn't exist at all."

      - J1612233
           - Whose accident was it regarding releasing these recordings?
                - "I was asleep. It was either Riki or Dax. Dax is too thorough though, so it probably wasn't him."
           - "Is that to say Riki is not as thorough as the others?"
                - "It's more that Dax is more thorough than anyone else."

      - FB1147857
           - "Why were you wishing for such things, in that first part? What made you wish things like that?"
                - "It's something they told me to do."

      - CA1715605
           - Nothing particularly noteworthy.

      - SS1594152
           - Nothing particularly noteworthy.

      - Legolas? Again?
           - "How many steps did it take?"
                - "Ten."
           - "How many will we take?"
                - "That's up to you isn't it."

      - LC1359413
           - "Do you still recite it?"
                - "No."
           - "Were you born in this tower or brought from somewhere else?"
                - "I lived outside a long time ago."
           - "Do you want to go back?"
                - "Not anymore."
           - "Because this place is too much fun for you, or some other reason?"
                - "The tower would get lonely."
           - "Is the tower lonely often?"
                - "It's not now."

      - GB1736935
           - "They must have hurt you a lot."
                - "Yes. It hurt them too but they still did it."

      - Kidou
           - Nothing particularly noteworthy. ('Soccer' again...)

      - U1491666
           - "Walking usually doesn't make that sound. I think."
                - "Walking doesn't make any sound. For me."
           - "Is it since you can walk without touching the ground?"
                - "I can do that too. But this was different."
           - "Is that why they told you to walk without walking?"
                - "I wasn't very good at it then."

      - Reno
           - Nothing particularly noteworthy.

      - KS1687689
           - "What were you hoping for when you offered that prayer?"
                - "I pray the lord my soul to keep."
           - "Do you still say that prayer?"
                - "No. He never took it
           - "You mean God never took your soul? Or could you mean that he didn't accept your offering?"
                - "It's better to drown, or burn to death in a fire, or be skinned and roasted alive than to lose your soul in the tower of animus."

      - S1334601
           - Nothing particularly noteworthy.

      - MA1157233
           - Nothing particularly noteworthy.

      - Riku
           - In keeping with her seeing everything as a game, she calls the items we receive from home "consolation prizes."

Shouldn't that part in the last paragraph be "...as he's the one with the keys you need. Be careful. There is information everywhere..."?

Also, "Not everything is as fake as it seems" feels to me like it belongs at the beginning of the last paragraph, since the next sentence seems to indicate that their powers aren't wholly illusion.
