[ Mosheh and Ahraon drag Selena to a bench, where she sits down and wheeps. ]
-Selena: and what kind of slayer cries like a baby
+Selena: and what kind of slayer cries like a baby
Mosheh: here - have a handkerchief.
Selena: thank you. [Weeps into the handerkerchief.]
+Mosheh: and don't worry, Selena, some of our most admired and toughest male
+warrior vampires, had cried in lesser conditions than yours.
+Selena: [cries some more] OK, I'm the dispeler, now what do we do?
+Mosheh: whatever you want.
+Selena: should I dispel stuff?
+Mosheh: you already did, but it was done by vampires, both human and non-human,
+since the beginning of the universe.
+Selena: then why do they need me?
+Mosheh: well, how should I start. I gather you've watched Star Trek: Deep Space
+Selena: I did, great show. Hold it, hold it! Not their prophets and the Vadeks
+Mosheh: yep, they are all real to an extent (minus some Hollywood deviations,
+Selena: oh God… who is probably Don Knuth, right. I know the “Knuth is not God”
+Mosheh: well, according to the prophets he is “The God” and “The Neo-Tech God”.
+Mosheh: because we are part of “The Neo-Tech conspiracy for establish the
+Selena: wasn't it established thousands of years ago?
+Aharon: well, like the prophets would say “Before? After?”.
+Selena: OK, so people dispelled in the past, and they needed me as some kind
+of role model to look up to to dispel. How lame!
++++: But what were these slaying tests, with The Guide, and these weird demons,
+and… God, they made me feel so helpless, and mad, and sad, and… all for becoming
++++: [she stands up] Couldn't you have given me a written examination?
+Aharon: heh, like in Space Quest 5?
+Selena: yeah! I guess. Wait, you've played it?
+Selena: two of the founders of the Jewish religion, and mythical and highly
+revered characters, whom lots of religious people would be exhilirated to talk
+to had nothing better to do with their time than play a silly computerised
+Mosheh: Selena, one of the redeeming quality of vampires is that no matter how
+much they live, they always live in the present.
+Selena: I see. [Selena giggles.]
+Mosheh: I should also tell you about the Q continuum.
+Selena: yes, I gather it existed, only it seems that the Qs cannot be
+Mosheh: they are not. They are regular humanoids, often aliens who have
+ascended to be vampires and Qs, and who possess extremely powerful (but not
+omnipotent or “supernatural”) technology.
+Selena: I see. Did they provide the special effects?
+Selena: OK, I'm still mad at you. But since I'm still find all this fascinating
+(got to being an Archaeologist-wannabe and stuff), I'm going to continue talking
+to you, despite being mad.
+Mosheh: sure. You may wish to know that the Bajoran scholars considered
+dispelling as the next logical level after slaying.
+Selena: and The Slayer was Buffy from the show?
+Mosheh: no. The fictional Buffy Anne Summers was a mighty slayer, but she
+was just The Vampire Slayer. The Slayer and the concept of slaying predates
+Selena: I see. So whom do I have the dubious honour to succeed?
+Mosheh: this is a complicated story, but let me ask you: have you read The
+Selena: by Dumas? Of course! … What?! Milady de-Winter?! She?!
+Mosheh: the more accurate story is a bit more complicated, but maybe you’d
+like to hear it from a more authoritative source.
+Mosheh: look behind you.

+looking in her twenties or thirties.]
+Selena: [sheepishly] hi, who might you be?
