Alright, with that in mind, they can move to the research stage of their little project.

Permalink

They figure out some light levels spacing and do research in hydroponics.

And they also discover an old bunker sort of thing from when the time when Oahk invaded everything. It's not the first thing one would think of for a hydroponics garden, but it's safe, has water, size and ventilation.

And Seni writes a formal project proposal and presents to his mom, she was feeling down and that cheers her up.

(His brothers are jealous.)

And then it's time to get down to work. Or, at least, for the others to, with help and supervision by some adults. Mika and Lesi and Tepam, meanwhile, get to make many, many lights, and they learn the other two enchantments and make lots and lots of them, too.

Sefoni does some research and picks out the best crops for their first attempt, hardy ones which easily take to this style of growth. Being in the middle of this kind of project is great fun! She spends a lot of time down in the bunker when they're setting up, and even more once the plants start growing. Luckily her twin is around to drag her back home every evening, if she didn't have Keolin she might just live there! 

Permalink

Ita is not taking much of a leading role in the project, but she is often there to help Sefoni around. The place does not look like an actual garden, but the green and the lights help a lot.

Tepam often visits to check the progress or just watch the Purple's work.

Of course, there's only two enchanting tables, so they have to take turns. Once his turn is done for the morning, Mika brings down the box of glowing stones, bounding through the big door to the vault and swinging it closed behind him. "Lesi's still on Aunt Patiri's table, but mum's is all yours, Tep!" He calls over to her as he sets the box down on a table near the door. 

Permalink

"Yay! I will go up there in a minute." Tepam says, taking pictures of a sprout next to a ruler.

Permalink

Ita comes close and looks inside the box. "How is your sister?"

Permalink

The box is full of cheap clear gemstones, which they've been using for enchanting practice rather than rings.

"Kinda frustrated." He shifts a bit, frowning down at his box unhappily. Lesi finds enchanting harder than he and Tepam do. It's not really something anyone else can help with, either.

Sefoni peers at the ruler from the other side of the plant Tepam is measuring, "That's more than it grew yesterday, isn't it?" She smiles, "You're doing a very good job," she compliments the sprout. 

Permalink

Tepam pats it. "Very good."

Permalink

"Because of Enchanting?"

Permalink

"Yeah. Mum says Lesi just isn't as good at controlling her magicka as me and Tep are."

Permalink

Sefoni giggles, "It must be all the compliments. You know talking to plants makes them grow up healthier!"

Permalink

"It does?"

Permalink

Ita nods. "It sounds very complicated when Tepam tries to explain it."

Permalink

He nods, "It's harder to explain than it is to do, I think. You've gotta control two different kinds of energy, and it's gotta be the right amounts in the right places, in just the right pattern, and you've gotta hold all that together at once. We know all the things we have to do cause we have the recipe in our heads, but actually doing it perfectly isn't so easy." 

Permalink

"Yeah! No one really knows why, but everyone says so, and I know some greens have done experiments on it, too."

Permalink

"How they don't know it's Amentan-kind of magic?"

Permalink

Ita nods in that intrigued way she nods when she thinks something is not purple-enough for her to understand.

Permalink

Mika notices this and smiles a bit sheepishly, "Sorry, that was kinda green for a grey, wasn't it."

Permalink

"I guess they don't! Maybe we should get your mom to use her magic stone look at the plants while we talk to them to see if it's magic." 

Permalink

"Oooh, we should do that." Tepam pulls out her pocket everything. "Oh, right, the wifi doesn't reach down here."
