I am not personally responsible for all of them, no. I don't think I am the worst person in Noxus, or to come from Noxus. However, I have done a great number of terrible things, and as such, I feel my obligation is to right what has been wronged, and to ensure it doesn't happen again. I changed since the invasion and that battle. I'm not the same person. The person that I am now can't rest until my goals are completed...

Of course... The thought that I killed so many because of my beliefs haunts me, and the fact that the homeland that I loved killed so many hurts as well. I barely sleep at night because of those memories and that guilt! You, and everyone else like you keeps trying to pry into my head, understand what I am... I'm a broken soldier just trying to find some manner of peace for myself and the dead, and to make sure future senseless killing can be avoided at all costs... The Ionians didn't deserve to die! But they did... And I...and I helped kill them... And not a day goes by that I don't wish I could do something, anything to make their deaths worthwhile, so that they didn't merely throw away their lives for nothing, that their deaths meant something...

Cower? COWER? Is that what you think I'm doing?! I'm NOT cowering or hiding away from anything! I stand here, writing out my ideals and what I wish for Noxus. Anyone with half a brain can figure out what that means... I live under constant fear that one day, I'll wake up, just as some assassin is sliding his blade into my heart to silence me... I watch the shadows, and my back, constantly. That's all I ever get to do...

No... That was NOT an assassination attempt... Assassins lurk in the shadows. They plot and plan, and strike when their target cannot defend themselves. They have no sense of honor... What I did, I did out of necessity. I waded into the lair of my enemy, and attacked them head on in combat. I did not poison his meal or drink. I did not trail him until he was alone. I fought him with all my strength, surrounded by those that would try to protect him, and all the darkness and corruption he represents... And you know what? I even failed that, and must be subjected to a visual and symbolic reminder of that failure on the fields because of it...!

...Do you honestly think I ENJOYED having to resort to such things?! What...what kind of a monster do you think I am? I can't change Noxus by simply preaching about change. Words mean nothing in Noxus... Nothing... Things require action in order to change...action that will most certainly turn to violence. But, those voices and faces in my head keep me going. They refuse to let me rest until I do something to atone for my sins, and for all the death I helped cause...! Violence is the only thing Noxus understands now...and as much as it pains me, that is the path I must walk to enact change...

So...please... Just leave me alone...

You're not a monster. You are a person. There will always be people like this who will prod and provoke. Stay strong Exile.

((an intervention. Someone force her to go to Jax's party.

This is not a request, but a necessity. Your Riven RP is just so cute.))

((It's called peer pressure, and no one can do it better than the two those two. They won't seduce just use their wits to convince her to attend.

Would you perfer if I tried?))

Dearest Riven,

I've summoned many other champions to fight others with on the "top lane", but rarely have I summoned you. Now, with the "meta" and countless strategy changes, I've came to the point of summoning you, and I do mean summon you frequently. I did summon you long ago during my early ages as a summoner, but unfortunately with a knowledge so little on how to use (pardon my words) you to the fullest, I've failed countless times.

What I've had most interest in you is your strength and the story of your life. All so interesting to me.

Is there any tips you'd like to give to a summoner like me, who is new to you? Furthermore, what runes do you find most effective on you?

((If this question has been asked, apologies are on their way. I just have no patience to read every page of this thread.))
