She has been very careful about controlling her psychic powers, which mostly amount to mind reading and the gestalt mind. She has no way of actually controlling a person's mind like that. Matthew warned her about that kind of thing very strenuously back on Mars.

    She knows the danger of doing something like that. Sloane didn't believe her or trust her, then he turns around and asks her to do what she has sworn not to do, go into Cas' mind against his will.

    It was just too much for her, being yelled at and cursed at like that. Her powers scare her enough as it is, and her ability to control them is usually high-level when she is aware of them. Still, they terrify her as it is.
    Sloane doesn't know that Rivia has Leyline, though. Plus he doesn't think that any power other than Ether can affect minds.

    So her explanation didn't jive with his understanding of how powers work, and he wasn't exactly in a state to think it through.

    Also, he did immediately regret his words afterwards. He was wrong to ask her to use her powers on them afterwards, but I already addressed that.

    Also, I would have responded to Elewa's post first if it wasn't for me trying to avoid time shenanigans.

    Damn it, Nik. Every time I try to write a response to Elewa, I start going halfway between my own style and a bastardized version of yours. :P

    Ha! No worries dude. Elewa understands that Sloane don't want to talk right now.

    He'll get back to Elewa later.

    Also, I realized something hilarious. Back when Sloane was darker and less of a soft bastard, he was more intriguing. But now, he's just crazy and maladjusted. His journey back to humanity has diminished him as a character, which is the reverse of what should happen.

    He could always backtrack, though that could be dangerous.

    Honestly, I never expected that what happened would lead to something like this. I figured people would look at her, shake their heads and look away, with maybe one or two asking Rivia about it. Never dreamed it would blow up like it did.

    With this group, anything and everything can- and likely will- lead to blow ups, no matter how small it might seem.

    Well, except for things that should normally cause blow ups- those are usually ignored.

    You didn't think that accidental passive mind control would cause a bad reaction?

    With a group with as many mental issues as this one?

    A touch naive surely?

    Funniest part is that this is minor compared to what would have happened if the SHR 2 cast was in this situation.

    Yeah....I think this group tolerates eachother a little more than SHR2's. Which group got along more between SHR2's or Codex's?

    Codex. Regular murder attempts weren't part of their interactions.

    Codex had a bunch of people trying to kill each other.

    Heck, Tandra alone was trying to mind control and murder everybody.

    I suppose that's true. Although I'd consider it less murderous than SHR 2 due to lower frequency.
