"How 'human' are you?"

Addis stares blankly and hesitates for a moment, as though momentarily paralyzed by such a question. His raven shifts on his shoulder uneasily. A hint of grief flashes across his face.

"I am quite human, thank you very much... Probably moreso than most people in London, actually."

Crimson eyes narrow ever so subtly in suspicion, meeting similarly red eyes as he raises his teacup to his lips. "I do wonder, however, what your reasons are for a question whose answer should be a foregone conclusion."

He looks down at his tea with far off, misty eyes.

"If your lifelong love became a monster, warped into something utterly hideous by the lawlessness of the Neath, in either mind or body, would you still love them, if they loved you? How far would you go to make it work?"

Look, my good man, Love cannot be constrained by such trivialities as "decency", "humanity", or "social mores"!

I myself have made love to monsters in both mind and deed - at the same time. Once, for example, I had a rendezvous with a Sorrow-Spider council and a Seeker of the Name in the Iron Republic. Sixteen hours of uninterrupted lovemaking on top of a lightning bolt (it being the Iron Republic), ended only when my companions were turned into butterflies (again: Iron Republic). Wonderful.

Which is the most morally righteous Master of the Bazaar? That is to say, which of them would you say is the best person (of an admittedly bad lot), morally speaking?

"I am diametrically opposed to his goals and everything he stands for. But Mr. Wines is an idealist. I can sympathize."

Forces beyond your control impel you to change sides. You may choose any other faction in Fallen London. Which side do you leave, and which do you join?

"Oh, it's so easy to switch back and forth between the rituals of the Game and the rituals of the Church. I've done it four times now and I'll certainly do it again."

"So, tell me, how do you take your Darkdrop?"

Freshly ground and fully prepared, with sugar please. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9XpmD_fjt6I

If you could steal someone's face and wear it for a day, whose face would that be?

Undoubtedly Mr. Pages'. Think of how many texts I could free from the Ministry of Public Decency! All the Art that would fly free! It would take him decades to gather them all up again! Art, my good man - Art is the one true cause, and it must be free.

If you could go anywhere in the Neath you haven't already, where would it be?

Farther into the mirror marches than I have been able to traverse up to now.

"Ugh, the bloody palace fer sure. It's pretty enough, yeah. All nice silks and all." she chirps bitterly. "But 'er Graciousness insists I wear a dress when I go. With frills. Actual, real frills!"

For sure, the Sullen Delinquent bears no frills now. All raggedy cap and threadbare coat against the rising swell. A heavy wooden bat taps against a rooftop's brittle tiles, and the rope bridge sways and creaks. They've cornered themselves, now. But they don't yet know. No need to rush. No one wants what comes next.

"Orl'right, yer turn. Let's see then." she turns, stops at the closed door to a quiet little shack. The lock doesn't hold, and the wood splinters. They yell. "Do you think you'll ever be a good person?"

Tanith Wyrmwood, now an elegant young woman in Parabola-linen and emeralds, watches the ragged girl going about her ugly work with something like nostalgia. “Most of the time,” she comments, “I think I am a good person. Then I remember some of the things I’ve done,” the corner of her mouth quirks unhappily, “and I’m not so sure.


“Actually, that brings me to my own question: what do you regret more – the things you did, or the things you didn’t do?”

Hieronymus Drake: Gentleman scholar, big-game hunter, scar-faced aristocrat. Remarkably sane, all things considered.
Tanith Wyrmwood: Longshanks cat-burglar; Bohemian author; now, perhaps, something more. Bubbly, expressive, and affectionate. It’s not only still waters that run deep.
Telemachia Lee: Gentle lady by birth, brawling Docker by choice. Good company in the drunk tank.

"Hmmm ... since most of my regrets about the things I've done deal more with timing rather than the actual doing, I will say it is what I have not done that bothers me the most ... I stood at the gates of Hell and did not go in ... a prudent choice ... but oh how my curiosity still burns! So to speak.

Without doubt it is Dûsh, my Racing Slug of Fine Pedigree. His pedipalps are adorable, and he's a marvellous racer.

All characters in Fallen London, it seems, have surface ties. What are yours?

An Innocent Spy, looking over the top of this year's edition of "Welbourn's Guides to Everything" with a certain amount of difficulty (for it is a hefty tome), smiles quietly to himself. "Nothing I'd be allowed to talk about for, ooh, another century? But never mind me."

"If London began a war with Parabola, whose side would you be on?"

Addis smiles thoughtfully, though the smile doesn't reach his eyes. They smolder with indistinguishable emotion.

"London, of course. How much I would participate, however, depends on whether Hell would be involved in said war."

He sets his teacup down on the saucer, and smiles with his eyes, blissful and serene. Wise and merciless. If cruel intentions were black fire...

"If they are involved, I think they will find that things will be very different from the last war we had with them, with the assistance of Parabola or not."

The Spy's tone turns terse and uncommunicative. "Good grief, no. But then I wouldn't take honey anyway. Not everybody does, you know."

"A question of direction. East, or North?"

South.

Which of the city's myriad factions do you identify most strongly with?

The Bohemians. They are the most welcoming, creative, charming, open-minded, and the least...squeamish...lovers you could ask for in all of London.

The Six Handed Merchant swirls their brandy thoughtfully as you hear a loud thump from the linen closet behind them.

"That? Oh, we all have skeletons in our closets. Speaking of which, what is the worst thing hiding in your closet at the moment?"

    "I tried deducing all the Correspondence from scratch once. That's kind of a big job, it turns out."

    "If for some reason you couldn't stay in London any more, where in the Neath would become your new home base?"

    Venderbight. I've had to stay there so often as a result of scandalized exile that I may as well apply for a passport! Besides which, it is terribly Gothic and romantic - an ideal place to brood, or work on one's memoirs.

    Which of the previous four fallen cities do you find most interesting, for whatever reason?
