MacAstral answers Prophecy questions!
5, 2004 - by Bimbo NL
attack came yesterday morning at 6 AM, and at least 2 simmervillians are
reported to be killed. 2004 is definitely the year of the ancient Simmish
Prophecy, presented by Ms Mollie MacAstral last December. I visited her
to have a talk about this horrible situation.
Back when Ms MacAstral held
her press conference, she invited sims to send her questions about the
prophecy. This was also supported by SimCity Times, The Simmer and KSIM
TV, and tonight I packed down all the mail we received and went to her
tiny (I wouldn't say shabby, no - I wouldn't) house in 55 Simmerville to
discuss the prophecy and latest happenings.
home is a bit... well, different. Dispite her sudden popularity, she still
makes a living as a psychic phone friend, and she lives alone with her
two black cats, Lucia and Spot. As I enter, I find her sitting quietly
in a dark corner. The fireplace is lit, and the living room is packed with
weird instruments and old books. I place the boxes filled with questions
on the floor.
My visit was planned to be
a cosy talk about how SimNation residents have responded to the prophecy
news. But yesterday's happenings made a sudden changh to that, we have
heard that a couple of our neighbours were killed while the military group
was fighting the aliens yesterday. We do not yet know who are missing,
but the simmervillians involved in the Operation Space were Mr Brion Mervil
and Mr Brad Rose (team leaders), Crawl Swims, Andrew Beartop, Victor Livingston,
Bendic Crawston, Carl Lobos, Gloria Rose and Pale Light. There might be
even more if they managed to keep any secrets from me, which I doubt. Thanx
to my protected source, John Klubber, I can inform you all that the UFOs
didsappeared after one full day's battle. Sky is once again clear!
- Ms MacAstral, it's happening
right now in the Simmervillian Forest, the fulfillment of your prophecy.
Yes, friend! There is nothing we can do but wait and see how this our flat
world will be. The prophecy does not belong to my soul, we do not know
who wrote it. Jing might be better than Yang this time around!
- Hundreds of sims all
over SimNation have sent in their questions concerning the prophecy. I
think we will need to concentrate on a few of those... let's see... I'll
do this on random..., hmm... where is that question I saw earlier today...
hmm... ok, ready!
A Mr Simtonin in SimCity
writes: "Hello! Are you selling a book or something?
Is this about publicity or is this a non-commercial thing?".
Oh, peace! I am not selling a book. I am not making any simoleons from
this. Not at all. Friends are the secret of time!
- Good. Next, let's see...
where is the other one... yes, ready!
Tish, from Lake Park
asks: "Tell me about Scorpios what are they supposed to be like and what
is in their future?"
Friend Tish! If you are a Scorpio do not fear! You will enjoy every minute
of the excitement that is about to wrap us all up into something we don't
know. Secrets and shaddows can light your fire, Tish! To most Scorpio sims
a situation like this is a good enough reason to live! I do believe that
Tish will find some excitement in the future! Peace and Yang!
- Next random question
is... let's see... there it is... from
Miribelle: "Miss MacAstral,
I'm very afraid! Will my children be abducted? WILL I? Is there anything
we can do to stop this invasion? Do you know what "keys" that you supposedly
Peace and Peach! Miribelle, your name sounds very simmish. So is your past!
The future I can not express in words that you will understand, but I think
your children will not be abducted. Or they might. Or you might. But I
can clearly see that the chances you will all be abducted are very small
- or big. It depends on the future, actually! And I can feel that "keys"
lays in our very presence, this very moment.
- Fine... We can do one
final, random question... let's see... not cheating... oh.. here is something...
Oh friend! Wait! I get a strange feeling, some very bright light is hitting
this room! I feel warm and dizzy, a change, a creature turned upside down...
the plague was sent to us to enlighten us and warn us... something... please
- Oh, cool... ahem...
that light... is it... is it an UFO coming to your house? If so, I think
I could need some espresso...
No no no, it's a peaceful light... oh, it stopped... well, please go on!
- Ok... phew... here goes...
a man named
Jason asks: "Do you
think that the verses are not in the right order? I don't think they are."
Oh... the light!!! Friend Jason, you are the light! Oh, I see what you
mean, we are believing in a wrong prophecy! Oh, by Similius! What a enlightning
change! I feel completely dizzy, I know the verses by heart, starting with
the last verse seems perfect! What we thought was the start is actually
the end! And what we thought was the end is the beginning! And the upside-down
plague was sent here to tell us to read the prophecy backwards!
- Oh, I think I lost you
there, Ms Mollie...?
Here! Look, I have got the book... I mean the piece of paper right here...
so fantastic, Mr Jason is a genius! How could he see that? He must be a
scientist! Look... "fear those from outer space" is the beginning of our
simmish existence, not the end!!! And "Trapped in a flat world" oh, it's
in our past, too, probably since ages. Aliens did probably steal a dimension
from us generations ago and then left us in a flat world... oh, look!!!
"A secret spell, what you think is old is new" - it's perfect! The prophecy
fooled us all (except Jason) and it even told us so! I'm amazed, what clever
soul translated this text, peace on her!!!
- Ms Mollie, I was planning
to leave now, but I realize it would be a real bad idea...
[oh, she still hasn't opened
her eyes, and she is not listening to me anyway...]
Yang! "6 AM, sky lights will return to fight"... the aliens are returning,
yes they are, we all know, they did yesterday... are they stealing even
more? Oh, no!!! I see it clearly now! We did the biggest mistake ever!
The next verse is "Don't cry! It's a friendly return of dimension - Stay
back! Don't fight their backward intention!". It means they are returning
to us what they once stole! Ms Trendy Woman, do you realize what this means!
Oh Peaches! Loveless!
- What exactly...? I'm
not as good at this as you...
We thought they were attacking to steal our dimension, our military group
fought them and some even died. When we turn the prophecy the other way
around, it says those aliens only try to deliver back a dimension they
stole from us long time ago! Oh, we must stop that military operation!
Those aliens are not evil, they are regretful simmers! I mean; regretful
- I see... the entire
operation was a mistake? Because of your prophecy, Ms Mollie?
Oh, it's not mine! And look, they will be back! The prophecy tells us that
the fight will last for one day and one night. They will return one night!
But we must stop the military operation before any more of our sims get
killed! Similius! Peach, piece, *ahrg* - PEACE!!!
Well, I have to leave Ms
MacAstral now. She seems to have collapsed from excitement. A perfect timing
for me to get a cab and go downtown to the trendy Café Cornell.
On my way I will call Juliana Valentino and ask her to help stopping Operation
Space. Finally she will realize that my hard work as a journalist makes
a difference to our existence!
I know that Sims Scientists
also translated the prophecy exactly like Ms MacAstral did, so we can't
really blame her, this poor little woman who talks with her eyes closed.
Instead we should be grateful to Jason! He might deserve a statue after
this! At least I think the SimCity Mayor should award him §100 for
being a hero!
Like our clairvoyant said,
we do not know when the night will come. Our operation has probably delayed
the aliens' mission. Perhaps they will return soon, or perhaps they will
return in the 2nd half of this year, 2004! Who knows, this world seems
to be full of delays, anyways!
