"Sucks."

"Can't have everything. I'll stay away from witches."

Permalink

"Yep, good plan. You're safe if you count as a potential magical girl but you'd have to get an alien to check that - how old are you -"

Permalink

"About forty. I turned into a Spirit Bearer when I was eighteen, though."

Permalink

"Eighteen's nearly too old anyway, they like the twelve to seventeen range mostly."

Permalink

"It may be worth checking when we're out of other things to check. They might be able to tell something's odd about me, though."

Permalink

"They don't have sensory powers that I know of or anything except what they use to tell how emotionally volatile potential magical girls are."

Permalink

"Ah. I wouldn't describe myself as volatile. Though I do have strong feelings about things." Shrug. "I probably don't count. Even if I did, it may well interfere with my own magic. And even if it didn't, I wouldn't want to make a wish until we have a way to generate grief seeds without witches."

Permalink

"Well, you do, but genies seem expensive and you'd need to get rid of the grief seed somehow."

Permalink

"Yes and yes. And genies aren't reliable on that scale. I could never get one to promise to make me seeds forever, I'd need to keep doing favors and risk not having any around when I need one. Are fresh grief seeds safe? So I could store them."

Permalink

"I'm not sure. But if it hatches the witch would probably starve if you put it somewhere without any people."

Permalink

"And it doesn't get around the problem of removing used ones."

"...Kaff!" She shouts to the genie following about a hundred feet behind them, "Could you destroy or dispose of used grief seeds without releasing a witch?"

"I could destroy them. I do not know if this would release a witch."

Permalink

"And I don't know either so that doesn't help."

Permalink

"Well, it's testable if you had one to spare and I clear off a nice big safety radius. Again, risky. Seems like everything is risky."

Permalink

"Yep. There's the car." She points at a car.

Permalink

"Kaff! Time to be sneaky. Please follow us and try not to be obvious to other people?"

"Very well." The figure disappears. The breeze plays around strangely and carries a lot more dust than usual. "Good enough, you think?"

Permalink

"Probably, yeah. You'll keep up with the car no problem?"

Permalink

"I will tell you if you are too fast."

Permalink

So Bella lets Tara in and drives to Winnipeg.

Permalink

"Do you have any notes you would be willing to share that might give me more of a sense of things work here? Background info? You mentioned them just before I got the lie detection from Kaff."

Permalink

"I have notes but most of them aren't designed for sharing and I should stay out of costume in public."

Permalink

Nod. "I'll drop my raiment too. It makes light, so, when we're stopped. Drive safely and all."

Permalink

"Good call."

Permalink

"Common sense is one of my best features."

Permalink

"It's good stuff. So how did you start, uh, bearing spirit -?"
