A question born of curiosity and the moment: At what point is it appropriate to tell your fiance, "I told you so"? Before, or after you retrieve him from floating in space after he did exactly what you told him you knew he'd do?

[Compared to Delenn's last video, this one is decidedly calmer--or as calm as it ever gets on Babylon 5, at least. She's sitting in a Japanese zen garden, quietly observing the ripples of sand around the stones.]

My friend, Commander Sinclair, specially requested this small garden to be set aside in Green Sector, as a quiet space. It has been a year since I said goodbye to him, and longer since I have last visited this place, but I thought it appropriate to meditate here.

[She smiles faintly.]

We are free. Both the Vorlons and the Shadows, as well as the rest of the First Ones, have left the galaxy to join the rest of our precursors beyond the rim. The younger races are free to discover who we are and what we want, without the machinations of those who came before us.

I wish that I could say this victory came with a minimum of bloodshed, but many lives were lost on all sides in this ridiculous war. Anna Sheridan, Kosh, many planets...and rumors swirl around Centauri Prime and what it cost Londo and Vir to rid their people of the Shadows. But we have opened our eyes and will no longer allow ourselves to be manipulated into fighting for anything other than what we truly believe in.

To those of you who faced the Shadows and the Vorlons as they breached the worlds, I am once again sorry. And I thank you for your courage and strength of heart.

The future belongs to us. And now, we must decide what to make of it.

I am afraid to inform you that what I've feared most has come to pass. We are at war with both the Shadows and the Vorlons, and they have discovered ways to cross the worlds.

We are fighting them at Coriana VI, but they may attack elsewhere. I have dispatched White Stars to help protect all of you, but they must travel far. I ask that everyone assist one another in any way possible. Neither the Shadows nor the Vorlons know what this community is capable of, and they will seriously underestimate you all.

[OOC: This is a catch-all for an optional plot, caught up in Delenn's canon update. Feel free to bomb the everliving hell out of these and these, but try not to hit any of these. They are good guys, and right now, they are rentals.]

[Compared to last time, Delenn seems much calmer, if a bit melancholy as she stands in her quarters. Noticing the Babcom unit on, she looks up.]

The community again. I take it that these intrusions will be common?

[She's not upset about it, at least, and she walks over.]

When one receives good news--for example, the return of someone thought lost--one should celebrate, correct? And when one receives bad news--the knowledge that someone beloved will leave again--one is expected to grieve.

So what is the expected emotion for someone who has learned that someone she loves has been found, but that he cannot stay with her for as long as she had hoped? I have not yet figured out exactly how I should feel.

[Greetings, community. You have a beautiful alien woman staring at you. If it was that kind of sci fi premise, you might be in for a fun escapade.

However, this is NOT that kind of sci fi premise, and she is looking at you like she's not going to take any bullshit.]
