"Because I am what I am, and you are what you are, I have this fancy that we might send a message to the multiverse at large. We'll see." She gave her signature wry half-smile, then grew solemn, and laid her hands on Thoth's bare temples in an attitude of benediction. "You were made for war, and have known more than anyone's fair share of horror and grief. I have neither the power nor the right to correct the imbalance at the source, but if I could, I would. There are benevolent forces in the multiverse; there is hope; there are second chances. In token of that, I say to you: go now in peace and in love, that you might know both, and show that it was possible." She drew his head down and placed a soft kiss on his crown, then released him and stepped back.
