The shades pussy was sitting invis watching a conversation
when she heard someone say they made diptheria flee.
and I cheered so she zapped.
But the first time she interrupted the cosy chat I
was having with Zarabeth, who hasn't been on for ages
nobody was talking about her at all. I think she just felt
so zapped me off the chat
Still, pussy's are drippy.Oh no! Dippy!

how the hell did you see who was zapping if they were invis?
How did you come to select me as your target?
Never mind, keep taking the tablets.

You didn't need to snoop as we were saying at the time

And I don't think the second was there at the time of the second zap./
Although I suppose some other invis could have zapped to support
the shades pussy. Wonder why they were too shy to be known.

Another way of telling your story is this.
While carrying a load of t, you fell off. A kind immortal
picked up your t and waited till you came back, then zipped
you to a safe place, dropped the t and told you to pick it up.
As time was down to nil, he stimed you another three minutes. But
instead of saying thank you, you started mouthing off about
immortal interference. So he zapped you, dropped the t where
it had originally been, restored the time to its original

This left me in the castle without a weapon, or

Invisible fun, or abuse, take your pick, seems to be the new hot
topic, and is a perfect vehicle for the paranoid. Witness the
earlier ravings of a mortal who had misunderstood an attempt to
help her. I am not involved in your little saga, Darkangel, but
there is an explanation. First, it is not possible for an immort
invis, or otherwise, to steal t from a mortal without them knowing.
But there is a way t can vanish without your knowing, in the castle.
Subject: More fun
Dated: Wed Apr 19 18:20:25
...If you enter the East Tower, all your t mysteriously vanishes and
is left in a heap in the archway. Are you sure it was in the BT and
not the archway to East Tower? If your weapon was the rat, it too
have ended up there, leaving you as you say, weaponless in the castle.
If you had also wandered into the BT prior to that, carrying the chord,
it too would mysteriously appear to have vanished. No immortal could
do what you describe. But you could have done it all by yourself.

While it's true they do add points to your score when you kill them
