He hadn't meant to, but he'd held his tongue all through Tash's lecture, and on top of that, Julian/Estril's and Rebecca's comments tickled his funnybone. He was still angry, but he no longer felt helpless about it. Quite the contrary, in fact.

"Thank you," he said to the non-gods. "You see clearly. And so do I."

He turned back to Tash with a cool smile. "I am sure who I am, actually. Like you said, I see a lot: beginnings, middles, and ends. Lots of them. Endless possibilities. But some are more likely than others. Me being the Lone One? Not gonna happen. But you... I guess you could say you've got choices, at least until our two years are up. I want to make sure you know that. If you want to call that 'meddling'..." His eyes narrowed slightly. It was such a loaded word, completely unfair to go throwing it around like that. But he took a deep breath and put it aside. "I guess that's fine. But it's your choice what you do about it, not mine."

He paused, then added, "'The End' doesn't have to be a bad thing, you know."

(( Gods be speech-y. Sorry this took so long. ~Neshomeh ))
