🎨 ✧ Why the invitation? Have you switched sides? ❖ *sigh* Something like that. Nothing has gone my way here. This is not the vehicle I wanted to use to return to Elseways, but the Empire let me use this back door. ⎈ Yeah, the one they stole from me years ago and sent here to spy on us. But now we're here to fix it. 🧬 They're not good at thinking outside their walls and their rules, but we have ways of sensing what they never cared about and never could. ⎈ We're going to complete my old project.
A footnote, because there's no smooth way to mention this in-story; the box around the Heart of Infinity is full of sand. It's been in there harmlessly swapping the positions of individual sand grains around ever since the Corps sealed it in there.
