"Yeah. As I saw. Ugh. Shadow things. Paladins. Crazy people with crossbows. This is not what I signed on for. I'm a nice guy, I swear." Look, there's his charming smile, isn't it charming?

"And you will remain unharmed if you do as I say and make no sudden moves," she says mildly.

She finishes tying up Candle Guy, who is swearing, and moves on to Fuckbuddy.

"Look at me, doing as you say. Making no sudden moves. Practically a model citizen."

"Mmm-hm."

Now Fuckbuddy is also tied up.

"I'm going to bring you with me to the mayor and see what he'd like to do with you," she says. "I recommend following along docilely."

He thinks, very briefly, about trying to find a way to make his escape. But he's got no distractions or easy exits, and paladins are fast. So. Running is a bad idea. Let's be the good little prisoner.

"Sure, following along docilely sounds wonderful. Like a pleasant little walk in the park."

"So good of you to get the picture. Just a moment." And then she puts her hand on her injured arm, which she has been ignoring this entire time:

"Winter Light, by your grace and to better follow you, I beseech your power grant me healing for this wound sustained in your service."

And now the wound is gone. She kisses the token around her neck, puts her gauntlets back on, and slings one prisoner over each shoulder.

"Follow me."

"I like to think that I am a very smart man. Who is good at - looking at pictures."

He follows, docilely, thinking of ways to possibly make his escape.

The paladin's griffin is waiting outside.

"Calm," she says, and, "unless he runs."

The griffin peers at Veron with golden eyes.

The paladin puts the prisoners on her mount's back, and clucks to the griffin until he's arranged his wings over them so they'll be unlikely to slide off. Then she gestures to mount and ambulatory prisoner both.

Veron laughs nervously at the 'unless he runs' comment. Oh dear. That's bad.

"Um. You have. Very pretty feathers," he tells the griffin, following Kaja awkwardly.

The griffin squawks, displaying the sharpness of its beak, and also follows its paladin.

Permalink

"I don't give false compliments!" he explains defensively. "I really mean it, you have pretty feathers."

Permalink

"Ragnar cannot quite understand you, you know," says the paladin.

Permalink

"Well, charm is the universal language."

Permalink

"I am not sure you will find him charmable either."

Permalink

"Well, you obviously haven't known me for very long. I'm very charming." Look, there's his charming smile.

Permalink

"Perhaps this will work on the mayor. I met you under poorer circumstances."

Permalink

"Trying to keep you from being shot was poor circumstances? I got punched. It hurt. A lot."

Permalink

"Oh, that I appreciate. That would be why you aren't tied up. But you were helping to make woke shadows, and those serve no good purposes."

Permalink

"Helping is sort of. Blowing things out of proportion. I didn't realize they were evil candles!"

Permalink

"No? You thought he had peculiar decorating habits?"

Permalink

"Some people," he says sagely, "are weird. I don't judge their weirdness. You really should publish information on what sorts of candles are evil, I would have avoided them."

Permalink

"What exactly were you doing for him, anyway?"

Permalink

"Aheh. I was the idiot smuggling the candles."

Permalink

"And you think peculiar decorating requires smuggling."

Permalink

"Well. Uh. Yes?"
