"We don't on top of my head."

Permalink

"I will check the portable sorcery kit, but as far I remember it's mostly herbs and stones."

Permalink

"Good.  Also, I expect you don't need to be told, but:  harm anyone in our territory and you will answer to me."

Permalink

"That was strongly implied, yes. And we are not prone to wanton destruction."

Permalink

She nods.  "In that case, I think anything further can be explained as it comes up." 

Permalink

"You mentioned experimenting with the mental effects- do you want to do that sooner so there's no surprises, or wait till we're more likely to need to know?"

Permalink

"Yes, that sounds like something better done sooner than later."

Permalink

"If you have a way to do it gradually, the better."

Permalink

"Uh- sort of?  I could start small in terms of what I do, but if it's gonna happen it's gonna happen, some people can control how it manifests but not anybody in the pack."

     "If you like, one of you could try it first and the other two stay as a control group," her grandmother suggests.

After a few moments of talking to each other. "I have the least dangerous power set if something goes wrong."

Permalink

Peg nods.  "You're not going to forget werewolves exist in general, I don't think, but might be you have a bad day and your brothers have to re-explain that I am one."

Permalink

"Not a happy prospect but I will leave and I don't have strong offensive powers. Just tell me that my brothers are nearby if that happens."

Permalink

"They don't have to leave the room, even, just close their eyes or look away.  I really don't think you're going to hurt me unless you can do a lot more than I've seen- Gran, do you want to stay or go?"

     "Stay, definitely.  And Peg is being unnecessarily ominous, the most common outcomes are along the lines of jumping at shadows, not suddenly attacking people."

Permalink

"Ah, noted."

Permalink

Felix and Thomas close their eyes.

Permalink

"Right, first try-"  Peg scoots her chair a few feet to one side and punches the wall, hard enough to rattle the mugs on the table.  "Take a look."

There's blood on her knuckles but the skin underneath is undamaged- if Fernando is watching closely he can see it close back up.

Permalink

 "You could have warned them before doing that. They might have looked in reaction."

Fernando observes the wound knitting together, he is not one to enjoy such kind of sight, but he is used to it.

Any lunatic effect?

Permalink

Well, he doesn't feel any different.

"Oh.  Yeah.  Sorry, I wasn't thinking."  She stands up.  "You two can open your eyes now- sometimes it takes a bit to kick in, and you probably shouldn't be under pressure, as much as we can manage anyway, so I'm gonna leave the room for a minute."

     "So, in the meantime- you've obviously seen some of the Under for yourselves, but did my granddaughter explain anything about how the planet is organized?"

Permalink

"Not really about how it is organized, she did give historical context."

Permalink

"The evacuation, or something earlier?"

Permalink

"She mentioned the war with the silent."

Permalink

"Mm- we're all very glad to have had some respite."  She takes a long sip of her meat tea.

"We've been telling you so much about our world, I barely asked about yours- have you had much experience with war?"

Permalink

They shake their heads. "Not directly, no."

Permalink

"Well, they also serve who- Peg, what did I just tell Cressy?"

     Peg sticks her head back in the door.  "Not to hover- I wanted to make sure I could get back in time if I needed to."

Permalink

"It's no problem."
