"Stalling you is the opposite of what I want to do."

Permalink

"In the world where you're telling the truth and your enemy is as genocidally inclined as you claim, yes, obviously; if you were lying stalling could be much lower-stakes depending on what the truth was."

Permalink

"...I'm tempted to get sidetracked into a discussion of what alternate truths would make sense and what the appropriate thing for me to do in those scenarios might be, but I feel like that might not be a reassuring conversational topic."

Permalink

"I dunno, if you were evil the odds that there was much overlap between the evil you would do and the evil you would discuss aren't that great."

Permalink

"...But does that affect how reassuring it would be to hear me discuss what I would be like if I was evil?"

Permalink

"Well, it means that hearing you describe an evil thing means I'm not going to go 'oh no you would do that thing!'"

Permalink

"No, but I predict that if I start talking about what I'd be like if I was evil, after a few hours you will come away convinced that if I was evil I'd be really good at it."

Permalink

"My first reaction is to go 'but if you were evil you wouldn't let me know that' but my second reaction is 'unless that's what he wants you to think' and this could get recursive fast if I'm not careful."

"See?"

Permalink

"I suppose I do. You win this round."

"So to return to the topic we were on before we got onto this little tangent, since it seems fairly wrapped up, which of the roses d'you think appeals most after the black and white one? Magically, I mean."

Permalink

"Maybe blue and purple. The fire one is also appealing, though."

Permalink

"I know, right? Oh, the blue and purple one has metal manipulation as one of its secondaries, that seems likely to go nicely with your magic system."

Permalink

"Nice!"

Permalink

"Emily was over the moon about it."

Permalink

"Any particular reason?"

Permalink

"It felt...right. Like moving a limb I hadn't realized was paralyzed."

Permalink

"I'm glad you got to find it, then."

Permalink

Kyralaine comes back.

"The king will see you now, if you like."

Permalink

"Now sounds good."

Permalink

"I can lead you there through my Sphere. This way."

Permalink

Spheres seem super useful. Follow follow.

Ashras comes along.
