"I - what?"

"She can," Cayra says. "She got rid of mine. She hasn't tried any medeomancers yet; this was the closest one."

"But - is it - safe?"

"Yes," says Cayra. "At least - I don't know if suddenly not having the vice anymore will cause problems all on its own, but it won't do anything else. Right?"

"Nothing else. It will simply stop the magic from interfering with his personality and thoughts and will fix what's already been damaged."

"I'll - I'll go get him, then, shall I -" She bustles off and comes back with a man, who follows along after her obediently and looks Cayra and Flynn up and down but doesn't say anything.

Flynn reaches out with the threads and very carefully weaves the barrier.

"Do you feel any different?"

"I," begins the man. "I - oh my."

"Dasan?" asks the old lady.

"But - will I still be able to," he frowns, thinking, "will I still be able to heal?"

"I can still do my magic," says Cayra, changing hair colors again (now it's red and white in stripes).

"You ok?"

"I... think so," blinks the medeomancer. "But how did this happen?"

"She's from another world, with another world's magic," beams Cayra.
Permalink

"My magic can block yours and your magic was able to help me. It's working out pretty well."

Permalink

"I didn't wind up actually doing that much to help you," Cayra points out. "Magically, anyway."

Permalink

"If you hadn't been there I would've probably floated along inside the threads forever, if I'd even thought to look. Your magic kept them from hurting you."

Flynn turns to the medomancer, "Would it be okay if we talked to you for a while? I'm trying to understand how humans work and why we die."

Permalink

"I - yes, but it's - a little hard to interpret some of my memories. It was... strange."

Permalink

"Can you tell us what it felt like?"

"Well, it was very gradual - and when it was in full swing I didn't think of my own thoughts any more than I did anyone else's, so I didn't consider them in much detail," apologizes the medeomancer. "It's like trying to remember how many times my mother used a certain word when I was less than a year old - it's not that I couldn't hear her, it's that this isn't what infants notice - do you see?"

Flynn nods, "Thank you."
She turns to glance at Cayra, "We're going to stop death. We're hoping you can give us a place to begin."
Permalink
"I'll do what I can. It'd be easier if I could examine one of you -"

"Go for it," Cayra says. "I'm not automancied beyond baseline, I should be okay."

And the medeomancer peers at her with his magic and reports what he knows.

They listen to the medeomancer's words for almost an hour and promise to return the next day.

As they walk away, Flynn turns to Cayra "Do you think we can do this? Get rid of death?"
Permalink

"Sure. You can get rid of vices and a fully realized automancer is immortal. The question is how fast and how efficiently."

Permalink

"We'd better get started then!"
