"Did you have a good Sunday? I didn't see you here yesterday."

"Yes, I did. Turns out Disney movies are fun, who knew?"

Permalink

"Well, lots of people, I suppose! And I keep forgetting you're from, you know, not-here."

Permalink

"I make it pretty easy to forget."

Permalink

"Yeah! Even with the tail and ears."

He laughs. "You'd think they'd be a clue!"

Permalink

"Surprisingly less telling than they could be," he laughs. "So, ah, how's that report going, by the way?"

Permalink

"I'm trying to treat it with the seriousness it deserves," he says. "Which I'm afraid our administration isn't."

Permalink

"How do you mean?"

"I'm sure there are cultural differences at work, but... I think the Director and I have different ideas of what the problem is and how best to solve it."

"...I think the problem she wants to solve is that you don't look penitent enough about it."

Permalink

"Yeah, I think that's accurate. And it's getting in the way of solving the actual problem, which is that I nearly killed someone and I don't want to do it again."

Permalink

"Usually fear of punishment plus guilt are thought to be good motivators to avoid their causes in the first place."

Permalink

"Well, that's not how it works with me. I don't need to be any more motivated to avoid killing people; it's pretty self-evidently a bad thing."

Permalink

At that he starts laughing.

Ashras smiles.

Permalink

"Well, in any case, do hurry up, we miss our teammate."

Permalink

"I'm touched," he says. "I'll keep working on it."

Permalink

"Thanks. And by the way, I think I recall Willow mentioning you wanted grappling hooks?"

Permalink

"I really, really do!"

Permalink

"Do you want me to get you the forms for that?"

Permalink

"That would be much appreciated."

Permalink

"I can get you them later today, then. After school."

Permalink

"Thanks!"

They finish eating, and he has to go to school.
