"Yes. Thank you for giving us some of that."

"It's kind of what I'm supposed to do."

Permalink

"Still. You're good at it."

Permalink

"Thanks. So, thoughts about the teachers?"

Permalink

"I don't know. They're not - the type of being that's fundamentally dangerous to kids. I'd have to do some digging; might be able to find another Nanny that knows them, or something. Or talk to Nausicaa; girl knows a lot more than people tend to think."

"Well, that's good to hear about the teachers. Nausicaa does seem to have a finger on the pulse of things."

Permalink

"Very much. She's a gregarious kid."

Permalink

"How long have you been watching her?"

Permalink

"A year, now."

Permalink

"What were you doing before?"

Permalink

"Helping other children. My last charge no longer needed me, so I moved on."

Permalink

"How long do you usually stay with a child for?"

Permalink

"A few years. No fewer than one, rarely more than ten."

Permalink

"For their childhood, basically?"

Permalink

"Until they feel brave enough to walk in the world without me is the usual."

Permalink

"That's very... fairy-tale."

Permalink

"A lot is, in this world, though often the more unpleasant sort of fairy tale."

Permalink

"I'm getting that sense. Definitely not the genre I'm used to."

Permalink

"Magical girls?"

"Crossed with cyberpunk. It was the early 22nd century, back home I guess."

"Huh. Well, good to know technology doesn't doom us all," she says, lightly.

Permalink

"Eh, not yet, at least. There's plenty of problems; wealth disparity's getting pretty bad, with lower-skilled jobs being increasingly automated. But the human race is still around."

Permalink

"We're having those sorts of problems already, so, I'm not too surprised..."

Permalink

"Yes, the trends were present for a long while."

Permalink

"Hopefully we'll be able to stop some of the more worrying supernatural trends, here."
