Alas!

Continuing from the short list we've accumulated, let's turn the conversation to work. What about your work is stressful, irritating, or depressing? I believe we can all contribute to this discussion ::smiles obliviously::

Work? I don't find my work stressful, or irritating.

After a while, you grow numb to it. My work is lonely more than irritatng or depressing. You see, witnessing the fall of mankind, the rise of my Queen, and her eventual death, and downfall of her empire due to a...

...I should stop myself before I reveal too much. Nothing is set in stone.

There are so many paths down which we can travel, that I shouldn't speak too much. The hardest part about my job is the fact that I am powerless to interfere. I can hint, I hope that I've gotten better at hinting. For the longest time, it was nearly impossible.

And, you know what they say about watching train wrecks happen. I suppose that it's been my entire life. Covering my mouth in horror as I watch empires crumble around me. It all gets so blandly depressing after a while.

Detatchment, of course, is essential. But, I'm still a human being, and it's difficult to remain completely detatched all of the time.

I hope that I've given you a more satisfactory and complete answer than the young man above did.

Well, as I don't technically /work/ anymore...

ShinRa wasn't exactly the nicest bunch of people. Irritating... I don't think you can get above the level of a secretary there without being irritating.

...and you can't ascend the ranks without being a complete psychotic, repressed or no.

Huh.

My work isn't stressful. I write the trash people want, kill all the characters and decide when I want to meet deadlines. And you, Pluto whatever, if you hate your job so much, quit.

Pluto has raised an interesting point, and it is good that she's decided to be open with us. For one reason or another, some of us cannot leave our current occupations. I, for instance, am unable to exist outside the grounds of the academy.

Is anyone else angry because he/she cannot leave a position?

I'm not allowed to quit, either. The Count- he's one of the highest ranking figures in Meifu- wouldn't have anybody to sexually harass if I was gone. And King Enma, the ruler of Hell, refuses to let me go for reasons of his own. I can't say I know why, but I do know that any attempt on my part to... leave my current status makes him *shudder* very angry. He's not one to cross.

*gazes thoughtfully at Tsuzuki for a few moments, then looks off into space* In my line of work, it can be rather ... stressful, when despite one's best efforts an operation does not go as planned.
