"Yeah, I haven't even looked at what dragon-related names are taken, there have to be like three of anything decent and I like going by Margaret."

"Margaret's a perfectly good name," agrees Larissa.

Permalink

"So's Larissa! And I'm not sure what codename I'd pick with your theme, actually, do you know what you'd go with if nothing was taken and you had a real name you hated?"

Permalink

"Oh, Larissa's actually my middle name," says Larissa. "I'm not sure what I'd do if I were on the hunt for an elf-themed name."

Permalink

"Yeah, everything I can think of is either cornball or would have the estate of J.R.R. Tolkien hunting you down with swords."

Permalink

"I don't think all his character names are trademarked but so few of his characters are women, there's like... three," says Larissa.

Permalink

"Ugh, true, and knowing him they probably all die tragically. How about you, Sumiko, got any names you wish you could have grabbed dibs on?"

Permalink

"Nah," says Sumiko. "I like my name. And I'm not very strongly themed anyway."

Permalink

Margaret nods. "I like having a theme, but you take 'just beautiful' and make it work. Speaking of beauty, I talked to that modeling agency Josephine suggested, so maybe I'll end up doing something there."

Permalink

"Cool, I hope that works out for you!" says Sumiko, while Larissa nods.

Permalink

"Did either of you do anything exciting this weekend? Hopefully more the 'job hunt' kind of exciting than the 'minor injuries' kind."

Permalink

"I met with my flying coach," says Sumiko. "She thinks I could make it to the Olympics but only if I drop everything else to practice."

"Church thing," says Larissa, "we're Thaumatologists."

Permalink

"Oh wow, the Olympics? That's so cool, are you going to go for it?"

To Larissa, "I wasn't raised anything in particular, but that's neat. If it's not too personal a question, were you Thaumatologists before you activated, or did you start afterward?"

Permalink

"I might but it'd take up so much time," sighs Sumiko.

"Magical girling runs in my family," says Larissa. "I have an aunt and a great-aunt who are magical, so my family's been Thaumatologists for a while. On that side. My mom converted."

Permalink

Sumiko gets a sympathetic nod.

"Oh, nice, I didn't know any others until I activated. I bet you knew a lot more than I did going in."

Permalink

"Yeah, maybe. Lots of it is trivia that isn't important though."

Permalink

"I suppose. Do you have a favorite piece of unimportant trivia?"

Permalink

"For a while my church had a cryptid living in it?"

Permalink

"Woah! What did they look like, what did they do?"

Permalink

"You say 'she' about cryptids still, it's polite. She was a lizard ferret thing but like really long, like a big python with lots of little rodent feet and some fur."

Permalink

"Oh, oops. She sounds really interesting."

Permalink

"She was neat. She'd sometimes go across a whole pew on people's laps."

Permalink

"She was pretty soft. And she seemed to like it if we petted her, I mean it was hard to tell but she seemed to."

Permalink

"Awwww. That sounds lovely.

Oh, I almost forgot to tell you! While I was running away from the bugs yesterday I think my magic did something!"
