Part Two.

On one issue you are correct, I do not wish to be a front-line fighter, for they can only win minor skirmishes or a battle here and there.

They are, in the great plan of destiny, no more than so much cannon fodder. The real fighter, be he King, General or President, has always been non-combatant and won the greatest victories from behind the lines.

President Jefferson Davies of America's South, at the before the start of the war said; \"We shall not loose this war for our lack of fighters nor for our spirit in battle

but we shall be defeated for our inability to plant beans and grow corn. (Gee, I wonder if he was right?)

And while I thank Magellan for his advice, and use it from time to time, I am not pacifist, I shall never believe that the meek could achieve an everlasting peace while the mighty (armed with swords) sit outside the gate and are of different opinion.

I am, and will remain a non-combatant and continue to slip in and out of PW status for Avalon does not provide the minimalist protection a non-combatant needs.

Mores the pity, for the conventional pacifist conception of a world teeming in reasonable or generous peace is irrelevant to this reality.

In closing, \"Lady Glowballistic - Still Kicking Puppies\", this a title I would have never expected of you, I honestly believed you would follow in the foot-steps of those in Darkness deserving admiration - and while the Thakria of today still has a fe

n the parts of its history that I have read, it seems she once had many. As to having a bit of Darkness in me, I pooh-pooh the very idea.

Evil is done without effort and can even be accomplished by the dimwitted. But to be an advocator of Darkness and win over the world requires extreme individualism, originality of thinking, whimsicality, even-if you will-eccentricity.

That is, something that can't be feigned, faked, imitated; something even a seasoned imposter such as Lucifer couldn't sustain and for that reason it shall never overcome Light for more than a brief moment in any given time. I do not possess the talen

to be Dark and have no desire to be evil!
