And then she emerges into the bar. It doesn't seem to be staffed. Or stocked. Why wasn't it locked?
Hello, anybody here?
Due to some icon rearrangement errors, some of Flynn's tags appear with an incorrect icon. The correct face for this thread is Rosario Dawson's.
"Flowers are - well, there's two major kinds, blue and green, speakflowers and knowflowers. Speakflowers are where you talk to people and keep personal petals, knowflowers are where you keep knowledge. If you're picking up a 'mancy, or something else - woodworking or geography or music or whatever - you use the knowflowers, and if you make an advance you put that information back into the network."
"I have to learn it, but that's pretty straightforward. I don't have any before I learn how - I haven't touched, say, geomancy, my father has a bit of that but I don't. Anyway, nobody makes alucines."
"I mean, this looks like part of a decent-size alucine, sure."
"No, it's just, daylight. Is there a big fireball somewhere here that you're seeing?" Cayra squints at the clouds. "I just see clouds."
"I thought you said it was huge. And yeah, people find or make new portals and those lead to alucines."
"It's really really far away. That's why alucines sound so strange to live in, I think I would get claustrophobic. I grew up with this gigantic universe, knowing there was infinite space even if I couldn't reach it. But you grew up in a series of boxes. It probably doesn't feel like that to you, but still..."
"Lots of them are huge. And they're all attached to more of them. Aeromancers get claustrophobia and they don't have a problem with normal-sized alucines."
"Well, anyone with access to knowflowers, but I didn't bring one, just a speakflower, and I think it's wilted a little because I can't get it to network."
"It won't network but it's still doing personal petals, go ahead and try." Cayra unscrews her pendant and hands over the blue lily.
Cayra narrowly manages to catch the flower's vial before it hits the ground. "Whoa! You accidentally did magic...?"
"Maybe, if you made it public." She bends her head over the flower. "Yeah, you left a public petal, not that anyone's likely to stumble across it in the network when it doesn't connect to anything."
"...Friendliness, calm, hyperabstraction?" suggests Cayra.
"I thought it was just a bar in a neighboring alucine. I'm not sure anymore."
