It's nearing Christmas, isn't it? I've always been fond of this holiday -- the lights and music are beautiful, and the atmosphere of cheer never fails to lift my spirits. I didn't have the chance to experience Christmas when I was younger; it was never something my people celebrated. [Obviously because of the religion itself, amongst other reasons.] Of course, we celebrated the winter solstice, but it was never anything so grand as Christmas. In fact, someone who's observing the holiday for the first time would think it spans an entire month, considering how early it's celebrated.

[A pause.] If you'd be so kind as to indulge my curiosity, perhaps you could tell me if you celebrated something similar in your world. Or is Christmas a completely new experience, something that you've only witnessed in the City?

[Her smile brightens, and she leans in closer to the camera.]

That aside, I want to address my friends at City Hall. I have participated in several Christmas gift exchanges in the past, and they've always been immensely enjoyable. I'd love to organize one for the team, if this would be something people are interested in.

[ooc: SO YES there's gonna be a city hall secret santa. people who have close cr with city hall people are welcome to join, too! anyway, the plan is for it to be anonymous both ic and ooc, because it would be more fun that way.8D and you don't need to reply to this post to join! i'll put up an ooc post soon explaining this further, but now diana's just mostly bringing the idea up.c:]

I hate to interrupt such an appropriately cheery discussion with something a bit...weightier. But unfortunately, I have something important I need to discuss with you.

Uh, Maxwell Lord, in particular.

Well, certain questions arose regarding his...history. I was told that you would be the one to speak with if I wanted full details of the matter.
professorlionface: (I'll take your word for it.)

I've heard what he had to say about it already, along with Jaime's initial accusation. But both left holes in the story. I was hoping you might be able to fill in the pieces we're missing.
professorlionface: (I'll have to think about this.)

I was told, ah... [And he hesitates a bit himself.] That you weren't left with any other option.
professorlionface: (Hmph.)

What led to it, I suppose. I had only heard that he had some plan to destroy superhumans, and that killing Ted Kord and controlling your Superman was a part of it.

It's the perspective that I find hardest to resolve. It just seems so...contradictory to the man I've come to know. But, at the same time, he had kept his powers secret until now. If he's abused them in any way while he's been with us, we'd have no way of knowing.

Where does Ted Kord fit in?
professorlionface: (Don't turn around.)

He found out about the mind control, or that he had Superman as a specific target for it?

He had an entire organization put together for this?

If it wasn't more than mind controlling one man, what would he need an organization for?

Then what was his plan, exactly? There's apparently a lot we don't really know about this situation.

Then it may be best to have you discuss this with the assembled team. I just have one last question.

Why hadn't we heard about any of this before? Why did it take Jaime making it public months later?
professorlionface: (Sigh.)

[He takes a deep breath, rubbing the bridge of his nose.]

I share that same hope. But we shouldn't have been made to go into this blind. Was his reputation really more important than our right to know what we're getting into?
professorlionface: (Um.)

We assumed you must have had your reasons, but the fact that no one else came forward with this information is a bit concerning.
