"My dad's a genius bloodworker, they got here on the skilled labor category."

Permalink

"Nice! What kind of bloodworking?"

Permalink

"He used to do practical but he quit magic because his talents and resistance didn't line up well enough so now it's just theoretical--uh, mostly human but not exclusively."

Permalink

"Bloodworking is really cool. It's neat to know all the - causal interconnections between bits of people, you know?"

Permalink

"Yeah! I guess you could say my dad works in nature and my mom works in nurture--she teaches little kids."

Permalink

"Teaches them what?"

Permalink

"Uh, reading writing basic math, also some self-defense because Mom grew up in kind of a crappy situation." 

Permalink

"Crappy in a self-defense way? Yikes."

Permalink

"Yeah there's some tragic backstory involved that's why I decided I was going to invent resurrection when I was, like, five, instead of waiting until I actually knew I was going to be a Great Mage someday."

Permalink

"I heard you did some self-modification to that end. That was really brave."

Permalink

"I dunno if brave is the right word--I was too much a young and silly teenager to be as scared as I should've been." 

Permalink

"Well, at least you weren't silly enough to get it wrong."

Permalink

"Sometimes I make bad choices but I'm very good at what I do." 

Permalink

"Good! Probably! Unless you ever make a really bad choice!"

Permalink

"I'm much less of a dumbass than I was three years ago." 

Permalink

"That's good."

Permalink

"I think most people are less dumbass-y at eighteen than fifteen but thanks."

Permalink

"Yeah, I guess that's probably true. I haven't met a wide range."

Permalink

"Not a lot of kids where you're from?"

Permalink

"Woodsail's very sparsely populated and almost nobody there has kids."

Permalink

"Huh. I'm sorry to hear that, kids are great." 

Permalink

"I never really felt the lack but thank you."

Permalink

"That's fair, I have a higher-than-average appreciation for them anyway." 

Permalink

"Do you find yourself adequately supplied?"

Permalink

"For now at least. I'll probably want my own someday but it's not, like, urgent on any particular timescale."
