I’m averse to using Objects of Power.
I don't want to lean on things I ultimately can't trust.
But the ashtray and the cigarette, smoking there forever, have their uses.
The Ashtray Maze they conjure is an impossibly changing labyrinth that no one but the binder and those the binder invites, can ever pass through.
The things we hid in Dimensional Research, the things Darling studies, the danger and the risk involved, call for every measure of security and protection I could bring to the table.
The maze, hands down, is our strongest lock.
I gave Darling and his chosen crew license to pass through the maze.
Lately, I’ve started to think I should revoke that license.
