"Gets back?"

Permalink

Yeah, Julie is a coast paladin, they're the magical girls who fight kaiju from the ocean, so she's gone most of the time. They might have let her come back, but maybe not for this long, she's not sure.

Permalink

"They wouldn't let her go if her daughter was missing?"

Permalink

Like, probably? But they will definitely have figured out by now that it was either the cryptid or she ran away, they probably won't be expecting her back.

Permalink

She hopes they did figure out it was the cryptid. Sort of. She doesn't want anyone else to have been eaten, but she doesn't want Julie and Winona to think she ran away, either.

Permalink

"You sure they won't think you are the cryptid?"

Permalink

- maybe. She's super careful about that though and things have been fine at home recently.

Permalink

"It still seems like the likeliest explanation."

Permalink

Not really. She could just go, if things were bad at home, she wouldn't need to go cryptid.

Permalink

"...okay. Well, presumably whatever they thought they'll be happy to see you."

Permalink

Yup.

"This isn't a very nightlifey town, apart from the place with all the deep fried food and vending machines that's open till two a.m. and the emergency office across from it. I can meet you in the park after things quiet down, probably around ten or ten thirty, and show you to a place that's low on houses so nobody sees the light and far from that intersection."

Permalink

Sure, that works fine, thanks.

Permalink

"See you then."

Permalink

 

She sees her then.

"Yo. This way. Do you want to check if cartoon diagrams work on a simple spell? That'd be faster than doing it all in chalk."

Permalink

Sure.

May has a binder full of inscriptions; she takes one out for Dusk to copy. "It has to be exact, all the ratios. It's my invisibility spell."

Permalink

She looks it over, makes a duplicate, looks that over too.

Permalink

May takes the duplicate and looks it over herself, pronounces it accurate, and says a chant. She turns invisible.

"Sweet," she says. "All right -" She sets the binder down; it becomes visible and she turns the page to her final draft of the diagram for the transit spell. "I want it, not quite as wide as the street, but close to it."

Permalink

She'll need to check it over, her cartoons are less reliable with more complicated things. But, examine examine, and there it is.

Permalink

May checks it over carefully. "These don't move around on their own once you've made them, right, once I check something it's stable?"

Permalink

Not for something out in the open like this. She has that problem with papers once in a while if she tries to store them but it's always pretty obvious.

Permalink

"Cool." Check. Double check, circling the diagram, stepping carefully between the lines even though they probably wouldn't smudge, making sure everything lines up and is the right size with her notebook as makeshift ruler. "Okay. I think this is right. I'm gonna hold your hand during the chant, okay? For reasons."
