Squeaky Clean Legacy, 17.3: De Profundis, Part Two

  1. 1. The Squeaky Clean Legacy, Chapter 17.3 “De Profundis” Part Two
  2. 2. Dinadan:

Are
you
sure
she’s
going
to
be
all
right?

Are
you
sure
he
knows
 what
he’s
doing?

  3. 3. Penelope:

I
hope
so.



  4. 4. Penelope:
And anyway, he is the only doctor in the family.

  5. 5. Penelope:

Thank
you
for
coming,
Max.

  6. 6. Max:

There
is
liCle
I
can
to
heal
the
heart
or
the
spirit.

I
know
nothing
of
 those.

I
am
the
worst
person
in
the
world
when
it
comes
to
understanding
the
 emoDons.
 Penelope:

I
just
don’t
believe
that.
 Max:

I
stand
corrected.

  7. 7. Max:  I am the SECOND worst person in the world when it comes to  understanding the emo?ons. 
  8. 8. Max:

But
her
physical
health,
her
general
consDtuDon—I
may
be
of
some
 assistance
there.



  9. 9. Max:

I have been working with plant compounds for years. 
  10. 10. Max:

The plants thrive beEer when tended at night, so that is when I  tend them.

  11. 11. Max:  I created my own dis?lla?on apparatus. . . .  
  12. 12. Max:
. . .  experimented with every possible combina?on of plant, added,  of course, to the tea I finally persuaded Grandpapa to send me from  Takemizu . .  
  13. 13. Max:
And experimented with dis?lla?on, concentra?on, and propor?on  un?l I was sa?sfied.    The result is a specific that soothes and strengthens the ?ssues.  It will not  heal a broken heart or soothe the wounded spirit, but it can delay the  bodily breakdown.  It gives the pa?ent a figh?ng chance.  That is all. 
  14. 14. Penelope:

It
does
sound
exactly
like
what
Elaine
needs,
but
.
.
.

  15. 15. Penelope:

Are
you
sure
it’s
safe?

Has
it
been
tested?

  16. 16. Max:

Yes.  On myself. 
  17. 17. Max:  It was the only way I could assure myself that it was harmless.   There was no one to do it but me.  And in any case, I am not valuable. 
  18. 18. Max:

The
formula
as
it
stands
is
gentle
and
enDrely
harmless.

I
would
 not
hesitate
to
prescribe
it
to
my
own
mother.

 Elaine’s
friend
is
correct.

She
must
take
fluids,
or
she
will
become
 dangerously
dehydrated.

You
should
also
persuade
her
to
sleep
and
to
 eat
something,
if
possible.


  19. 19. Max:

Persuade,
not
coerce.

That
will
do
more
harm
than
good.

Allow
 her
to
eat
what
she
likes.

If
all
she
wishes
to
eat
is
ice
cream,
encourage
 her
to
eat
ice
cream.

A
diet
of
ice
cream
for
a
day
or
two
will
not
hurt
 her.

  20. 20. Penelope:

Ice
cream,
hmm?

Well,
we
certainly
have
a
lot
of
it.

Is
there
 anything
else
we
should
do?

  21. 21. Max:

Rest.

Food.

Sleep.

Simple
pleasures.



  22. 22. Max:

She
is
young.

And
strong.

  23. 23. Max:

And
she,
at
least,
will
make
a
full
recovery.

  24. 24. Following
the
doctor’s
orders
is
not
always
unpleasant.

  25. 25. Cecil:

Rural
pleasures
do
not
please
at
all.

  26. 26. Touristy
lady:

So
do
you
prefer
hunDng
or
fishing
or
hiking
or
what?
 ‘Cause
you
kind
of
look
like
you’d
like
hunDng
or
hey,
no,
horseback
riding
 or
something

.
.
.


  27. 27. Touristy
lady:

So
is
he
your
husband
or
your
brother
or
what?


I
bet
he’s
 your
brother
‘cause
you
look
kind
of
similar,
only
he’s
way
grouchier.

I
 never
saw
such
a
Gloomy
Gus.

He
doesn’t
even
talk
at
all.

  28. 28. Touristy
lady:

Guess
you
don’t
either.

I
was
just
trying
to
be
friendly.



  29. 29. Chef:

Bit
of
a
ChaCy
Cathy,
isn’t
she?


  30. 30. Chef:

I
don’t
think
you
need
a
lot
of
talk
if
you’re
enjoying
your
food.

  31. 31. Chef:

Anyway,
bone
appeDte,
as
they
say,
and
if
you
want
more,
give
me
 a
shout.

The
name’s
Theresa.



  32. 32. Cecilia:

.
.
.
.
Mmm.

  33. 33. It
hasn’t
all
been
misery.

The
youngest
main
house
Goodytwoshoes
boy,
 Kai,
just
grew
up.

  34. 34. Gawaine:

I
see
you
acquired
custom
content.

  35. 35. Kai:

Yep.

And

I
rolled
Popularity,
just
like
everybody
else!
 Gawaine:
I’m
not
sure
we
need
another
Popularity
Sim.
 Kai:

Well,
that’s
too
bad!

  36. 36. Everyone
isn’t
even
unlucky
in
love.

Palomides
has
pursued
his
grocery
 girl,
and
possibly
because
he
made
a
sensible
pick,
things
have
been
 going
very
well.

  37. 37. Gawaine:

I’m
glad
you’re
happy,
at
least.

We
don’t
want
anything
going
 wrong
with
the
groceries.

  38. 38. Telemachus
is
also
very
Shy,
but
he
is
Family
and
like
Palomides,
really
 wanted
a
girlfriend.

  39. 39. The
matchmaker
has
been
outdoing
herself
lately.

I’m
impressed.
 Of
course,
chemistry
is
not
everything.

  40. 40. Secret
Society
girl:

Woow.

You’re
all
preCy
and
blue,
and
you’re
an
 alien?

Are
you
from
Pandora
or
something,
like
that
movie?

  41. 41. Telemachus:

Pandora?

Don’t
be.
.
.

 Well,
actually,
Dad
never
menDoned
where
Space
Mom
or
Dad
or
 whatever
was
from,
so
for
all
I
know.
.
.

 I
mean,
yes.

  42. 42. Telemachus:

Shut
up.

It
worked.

  43. 43. Secret
Society
Girl:

Do
you
have
a
magic
tail,
too?
 Telemachus:

I
don’t
do
magic
tails
on
the
first
date.

  44. 44. Even
Making
Best
Friends
is
a
big
deal
when
you
consider
that
these
guys
 hated
each
other
and
that
it
was
all
Bunthorne’s
fault.

  45. 45. Gawaine:

There’s
not
a
thing
I
can
do
about
it,
Percy.

Sorry.

  46. 46. Even
the
Pleasantview
playables
are
managing
to
find
some
happiness.

 Lionel
Pleasant
proposed
to
his
longDme
girlfriend,
Dionne
Dreamer
.
.
.

  47. 47. .
.
.
And
was
accepted.

  48. 48. And
frankly,
there
is
nothing
that
can
be
done
about
some
people.

  49. 49. Zane:

*sigh*
 How
is
Elaine?

  50. 50. Lenore:

She’s
coming
back
next
week.

It
was
the
worst
thing
I’ve
ever
 seen,
seriously.


 I
mean,
what
a
WUSS.

He
can’t
just
say
“I
want
to
break
up
with
you”
or
 whatever?


Don’t
dance
around.

That’s
what
burns
me
up.

You
should
 just
say
what
you
mean.






  51. 51. Zane:

*sigh*

  52. 52. Zane:

I
think
I’m
really,
really
bad
for
you.



  53. 53. Lenore:

Excuse
me.

What?

  54. 54. Zane:

I
wanted
to
find
out
who
I
really
was.
.

.
 Lenore:

Uh‐HUH.

 Zane:

And
so
I
looked
on
the
Internet.

  55. 55. Lenore:

Zane,
I
don’t
know
what’s
coming
next,
but
we’re
not
having
this
 conversaDon
in
a
crowded
restaurant.

  56. 56. Zane:

There’s
just
too
much
Death
around
me.

It’s
not
just
my
father.

 It’s
my
mother,
and
well.
.
.
me.

I’m
a
monster,
and
I
can’t
ask
that
of
 you.

And
I
won’t
ask
it
of
you.

  57. 57. Lenore:

What
the
heck
are
you
talking
about?

First
of
all,
say
you’re
right
 and
your
father
is
the
Grim
Reaper.

Big
deal.

You’re
not
the
only
one.

 Second
of
all,
I
doubt
you
could
possibly
be
a
monster.

Anywhere,
in
any
 universe,
at
all.

And
finally,
I
don’t
care
who
you
are
somewhere
else.

 Here,
you’re
my
boyfriend.


  58. 58. Lenore:

Look.

I
know
it’s
a
shock
to
look
yourself
up
on
Boolprop.

You
 clearly
need
a
cuddle.

  59. 59. Zane:

Thank
you.
 Lenore:

You’re
welcome.
 Zane:

This
isn’t
going
to
change
my
mind,
though.

  60. 60. Lenore:

It’s
not?
 Zane:

No.

  61. 61. Lenore:

I
can’t
BELIEVE
this.

What’s
next?

“It’s
not
you,
it’s
me?”
 Zane:

But
it
is.
 Lenore:
“I’m
doing
this
for
your
own
good?”
 Zane:

But
I
am.
 Lenore:
“You’ll
be
beCer
off
without
me?”
 Zane:

But
you
will.

  62. 62. Lenore:

What
kind
of
total
moron
says
stuff
like
that?

  63. 63. Lenore:

And
ARGH.

Why
are
you
SMILING
at
me?
 Zane:

Because
I
love
you.

  64. 64. Zane:

I
can’t
believe
you’re
yelling
at
me.
 Lenore:

I
can’t
believe
I
have
to!
 Zane:

Goodbye.

I’m
so
sorry.
 Lenore:

GROW
UP,

ZANE!

  65. 65. Zane:

.
.
.I’ll
miss
you
so,
so
much.

  66. 66. Cecilia:

.
.
.
Hi?
 Mountain
ladies:

Well,
hi
yourself
there!

  67. 67. Cecilia:

.
.
.
Whee.

  68. 68. Cecilia:

Fish?

  69. 69. Bigfoot:

You
must
be
really,
really
sad
and
lonely,
lady.
 Cecilia:

What
makes
you
say
that?

  70. 70. Bigfoot:

Because
mentally
balanced
people
with
acDve
social
lives
do
not
 go
looking
for
Bigfoot.

  71. 71. Cecilia:

WELL!

I

.
.
.

 .
.
.
You
may
be
right.

  72. 72. Bigfoot:

Between
you
and
me
.
.
.
Bigfoot
gets
preCy
sad
and
lonely
too.

  73. 73. Penelope
was
right,
by
the
way.

KiCens
do
help.

  74. 74. Thanks
to
so
many
people,
especially
Orikes
(Pseudo Legacy),
who
loaned
 me
Ian
and
sent
me
his
photographs.

Thanks
also
to
Peasant007
 (Devereaux Legacy),
for
loaning
me
Zane,

to
RubyBlue
(Goldilocks and  the Nine Heirs)
for
Dinadan
Locks,
and
to
Marhis
for
reversed
gender
 Pleasantview.

Cecil
look
appalled?
