"I can't do that."

"Sorry." Gaspard folded his arms on the counter. "See, this is exactly the thing that I was warned of. The... 'bad future' happens specifically because someone reported the visitors to the Flowers. The Board of Department Heads then tried to take preventive measures but only managed to breed a more insidious form of the thing they were trying to head off." Turning to Liese, he said: "And of course I know that things change! For example, right now I count two-and-a-half more Time Lords than mentioned in the information that I received. Harris here now has a girlfriend--"

"Sonia is not my girlfriend," interrupted Harris.

'Yes she is," continued Gaspard, "and finally New Caledonia now has a central building thing. The situation has changed-- I'm aware of that. I just ask that you give me the space that I need to complete this operation. I'm under strict orders not to divulge this information to just anyone lest my history repeats itself."

"But how did they find you?" said Harris. "From their perspective maybe one of the others talked. Then they went on to question you."

"So... does that mean we're already on track for the DTOM timeline?" said Gaspard, rubbing his chin. "Aw, heck. This is going to suck."

"No, not necessarily," said Harris. "Maybe we're in a different timeline. Like, one separate from ours and the DTOM's."

Gaspard scratched his head. "Maybe. Um, timeline specialist people? What do you think? I can't possibly say anything to you guys because that constitutes 'treason' from my perspective and I don't want to risk my efforts going to waste. On the other hand... maybe in this timeline informing the Flowers won't be so bad."

            "The Sundering. Great. Always good for a laugh, that is." Liese stroked his pointed grey beard. "It sounds like the Paladins could have come from either DF-109C or 109D. Or possibly some new... more
