COMMERCIAL AT END OF EPISODE (HR)

Perhaps you will write . . .

    . . . the next ARMY commercial.

          Something with pizazz.



HR to C

I will follow too.
Our hearts beat as one but, well,
Are we indeed fools? <smile>



I will follow on (HS to VR)
Posted by: prunehilda - May 14, 2002, 7:59 PM 4 of 36

our angels steps but I am
afraid and not brave.



No, not heart's desire.... (HS)
Posted by: VretilRaduriel - May 14, 2002, 7:57 PM 5 of 36

(I will hold yet) You may try
Desires -- or just step

A few soft steps, through,
through sand, through light, through portal
and see with your heart.



HR to all, but directed at C
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - May 14, 2002, 7:56 PM 6 of 36

Sometimes I feel like
We are not up to the task
That F built for us.

"Name" is expected?
What does that mean? Ours or his?
Any Buffy link?

As for me, I will
Confess as dear V advised.
For now: sloth, anger.

For now that's all, O.
More sins to follow, maybe,
If useful it is. <g>



You hear a voice say . . . (HS)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - May 14, 2002, 7:56 PM 7 of 36

Where many combine, there's strength.

Or pure foolishnes.



Then I shall go first (HS)
Posted by: VretilRaduriel - May 14, 2002, 7:54 PM 8 of 36

With ichor strong and clear eyes
But I'll not speak yet.

I'll keep the surprise.
'Til comrades all shall pass through
Together, as One.



Are you saying that (HS to VR)
Posted by: prunehilda - May 14, 2002, 7:52 PM 9 of 36

we should tell our hearts desire?
In regards to what?



Sweet Conspiracy... (HS)
Posted by: VretilRaduriel - May 14, 2002, 7:47 PM 10 of 36

If sand and sea lie beyond
I say, let's pass through

Be brave. The wall's light,
It's shimmer are as we name,
as we do view them.

Let's go then, let's pass
And each reply in words clear
what we see beyond.



COMMERCIAL BREAK (PSA) AT END OF ACT 3 (HR)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - May 14, 2002, 7:47 PM 11 of 36


In a Buffy show . . .

     . . . there's ten messages per break.

But some aren't greedy.



Another voice says . . . (BV sotto voce)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - May 14, 2002, 7:43 PM 12 of 36

I told you they were not prepared for this.

But you always expect more than you get.



To the voice from beyond the portal...
Posted by: VretilRaduriel - May 14, 2002, 7:42 PM 13 of 36

We are the sweet "C"
Sweet, strong, clever, determined.
What is your nature?



My thanks sweet SL
Posted by: VretilRaduriel - May 14, 2002, 7:39 PM 14 of 36

Even Monkey makes more Sense
Than Tea Powers...

Perhaps the Sorbonne
Would help them, teach them to learn
Clarity Beyond

The sea and her waves.
Oracle -- what knowledge then
is gleaned from the sea?



You hear a voice say . . . (HS)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - May 14, 2002, 7:38 PM 15 of 36

"What's in a name," someone said.

What name would you like?



This business of God (HS to the void)
Posted by: prunehilda - May 14, 2002, 7:36 PM 16 of 36

and cheating. Are we on the
topic of chaos.



Dice though are okay... (HS)
Posted by: VretilRaduriel - May 14, 2002, 7:36 PM 17 of 36

As long as she's not dicing
For souls, while taking...

Tea. In a light lounge
That gleams, shimmers, by the sea
With portal locked tight.



HR to the sensitive voice
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - May 14, 2002, 7:34 PM 18 of 36

You should well know that
The "people" will rebel if
All loses its sense.

We thought we did well
And obeyed the rules we knew.
Now we're confused, mad.

I join my plea to
V's official call to O.
Stop sniffing and come!



COMMERCIAL BREAK (PSA) AT END OF ACT 2 (HR)

"God doesn't play dice . . .

    . . . with the universe," some say.

If She did, She'd cheat.



Dear BK and SL... (HR)
Posted by: VretilRaduriel - May 14, 2002, 7:31 PM 20 of 36

They desire action
They say, ask the Oracle.
They then claim other...

Oracle's perverse
Power hungry, or confused
So I rephrase questions...



You hear a voice say . . . (HR)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - May 14, 2002, 7:30 PM 21 of 36

I hear angry noise.

          It hurts my delicate ears.

Looking out to sea.



HR to PTT
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - May 14, 2002, 7:29 PM 22 of 36

Good programs always
Lose sponsors here and there, but
Quality does pay.

Clever minds will know
To separate rumours from
The truth. C is safe.



VR what is your (HS to VR)
Posted by: prunehilda - May 14, 2002, 7:28 PM 23 of 36

straightforward understanding
of all that transpires



A response into the void in quatrain as show of strength...
Posted by: VretilRaduriel - May 14, 2002, 7:27 PM 24 of 36

Do not invite a legal action dear!
Oh Oracle, I call to you, demand,
Response. I do. Now SPEAK! On honor here.
How may we pass? Reply, and don't sniff sand!



HR to VR
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - May 14, 2002, 7:24 PM 25 of 36

Dear angel you are
Always there to show the truth.
Your guidance: our light.



Some how I think I'm
Posted by: prunehilda - May 14, 2002, 7:23 PM 26 of 36

responsible for this when
I asked the question.

But although it is hard
to interpret FP and
the Powers that Tea.

I think we are to
fill that void left by VS
or else storm the wall.



COMMERCIAL BREAK AT END OF ACT 1 (HR)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - May 14, 2002, 7:21 PM 27 of 36


This sponsor pulled out . . .

   . . . because of the "C" scandal.

Now see what you've done?!?!




HR to prunehilda
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - May 14, 2002, 7:20 PM 28 of 36

I guess not knowing
Is part of our sick pleasure.
Still I agree, prunehilda.

FP (and all) do
Impose a Catch 22
That seems quite unfair.

Or maybe an idea:
He's improvising replies
To see reactions? <sigh>



If it is a Void, let's fill it... My warning first (BV)
Posted by: VretilRaduriel - May 14, 2002, 7:18 PM 29 of 36

Forensic, why you clever little imp!
The angel weeps not. Rather, she fulfills
Her calling, shakes her pinions, ruffs her wings,
As she prepares for action very meet. <serious smile>



HR to VR
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - May 14, 2002, 7:16 PM 30 of 36

I'm not sure your cries
Will be heard by who's in charge.
Rules come and go here,

That's what's confusing.
We try to play by Rules that
"God" does not obey.

Or maybe there's some
Hidden meaning to V's void?
Some kind of "merger?"



Again with the cry (HS to SL)
Posted by: prunehilda - May 14, 2002, 7:13 PM 31 of 36

for action. SL I'm lost
How are we to act?



Powers that Tea...
Posted by: VretilRaduriel - May 14, 2002, 7:11 PM 32 of 36

I protest. To you.
Yes, you. Subterfuge? For shame!
All know, what's been made...

Cannot be unmade.
Create if you choose. It's true.
But the Universe...

Does not allow you,
To destroy, unmake,
Verschip, thus, exists.



COMMERCIAL BREAK AT END OF PROLOGUE (HR)

Like Britney's belly?

      You'll like Pepsi just as well.

Thought you'd like to know.



HR to all
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - May 14, 2002, 7:05 PM 34 of 36

There's been nasty sounds
About C's dishonesty.
Freud would yell: "Transfer!" <g>

WELCOME TO TEA TIME ... where the RULE is: VERSE ONLY ... The Oracle's HERE

RIGHT HERE THERE SHOULD BE
"PREVIOUSLY AT TEA TIME ". . .
BUT THE DOG ATE IT.<g>

SO WE'LL REPEAT THIS:
Mister Verschip has vanished.
What will happen now?

The participants
may have to figure things out
between commercials.

The Oracle's HERE . . .
BUT he may be "hard to reach."
Crazy? Powerful?

SILENCE may well reign
if you do not choose to act.
Please don't get me fired.<ewg>

But the Oracle
seems not to care about that. . .
YOU HEAR THIS: ACTION.

BUT NOW YOU'RE THINKING:
"I don't believe the DOG thing.
I want more info."

PERHAPS IT WILL HELP
to know it is Monkey's dog.
Monkey said say that. <ewg>

Verschip's location?
(for those who have asked of him)
Indeterminate.

When he lost his name
(when was it, back last Thursday?) tid=121116
he stormed out of here.

ThePowersThatTea
say he no longer exists.
Computer file's blank.

AGAIN THERE'S A VOICE
(that's getting impatient now)
"PLEASE START THE ACTION."

Well, I guess we should.
Monkey's on the phone with me.
He says keep talking. <ewg>
