You know how much power that takes? Besides. You need a landmark.

Permalink

"Landmark," she sighs and then nods. "Okay. How do I get one?"

Permalink

The murder scene is the landmark. That's the point. You can go further back but that point will anchor you to your present. Even if it is gross.

Permalink

"You're talking time travel."

Permalink

Chronomancy. But essentially, yes. You tilt dear Juliet one way, she doesn't kill her father.

Permalink

This is way beyond her pay grade. But she is literally the only one able to do this job.

"Is chronomancy something we can learn or do we need to outsource?"

Permalink

Obviously you can't learn it. 

Harriet goes so far as to roll her eyes. 

Permalink

"Obviously."

Permalink

Silly. Even Soulbonded, you wouldn't be a mage.

Permalink

"We meaning Lorie, Anders and Nat."

She will not snap at this girl. She Will Not.

Permalink

Hmm.

Permalink

Harriet's eyes roll back in her head, and the white turns black. 

Permalink

And then she's back. 

Nope! Outsourcing it is.

Permalink

Seo does not flinch because she is calm and collected and magic does not freak her out. Nope.

"What was that?"

Permalink

Harriet looks behind her. 

What was what?

Permalink

"The magic you just did. What did you see?"

Permalink

Oh! Right. So, sometimes I can just...pull other versions of a person into themselves? Like, say there's a world where you're a vampire, or Anders is possessed, or Lorie knows chronomancy. I was just seeing if there were any worlds where it happens and doesn't destroy either realm. 

Permalink

She frowns. "Do you get a lot of details out of then? Can you go more in depth about the ones you mentioned."

Permalink

Harriet sighs. 

Explaining things is hard. 

Permalink

"Okay. So we need to find a chronomancer.... any idea where we can find one?"

Permalink

You're gonna laugh, but, that Juliet girl? She's a chronomancer in a different universe. 

Harriet falls back, her face screwed up in a soundless laugh. 

Permalink

"Two chronomancers, a vampire and a possessed boy. What interesting lives we live."

Permalink

You especially, Hawke. 

Permalink

"I am not a bird." She looks down at Anders and Lorie. "You guys get all that?"

Permalink

Lorie wipes tears from her eyes, and nods. "I'll talk to mum, see what she knows about chronomancers in the area."
