"Sure, why not. Figured that would be where you'd be staying, right direction," he says, nodding down the road they've been walking.

"Owner has a price list! Posted on the wall! If I give him those amounts of money I can receive the corresponding services! It's very cool."

"As opposed to?"

Permalink

"Racist price-gouging and/or asking me where my husband is."

Permalink

"You're a caster, though."

Permalink

"One time proving that did work, actually."

Permalink

"One time?"

"Lot of times it's just an excuse and they switch to a different one. One guy thought I must have a magic item and I wasn't going to blow all my spells for the day demonstrating in more detail."

"Wow. I kinda want to talk to someone about it."

Permalink

"I have been reliably informed that racist price gouging is not in point of fact against the law."

Permalink

"The price gouging, maybe not, but refusing service for a lack of husband when you're a caster is."

"I'm not sure it is. Being a caster means I don't have to obey the women's curfew, not that I cannot be refused service at private establishments."

Permalink

"Because it's not using the, the code one lives by and trying to derive what it means to live by it and why, it's doing whatever you want and painting a pretend layer of Lawful over it by using the right words. If you're going to just do whatever you want at least own up to it."

"I think your thing there is how you do Law if you're not in a supportive environment, but these are Osirians who can probably make Axis solely by never doing anything illegal or donating to charity."

Permalink

"Which is why it is against the spirit of Lawfulness even if it is, quite literally, not against its letter. As it is not illegal."

Permalink

"I will concede that it's not especially spiritual as racism goes."

Permalink

Snort. "That's a way to put it, I guess."

Permalink

"You don't think people can have a deeply felt code of law which happens to include being racist, or possibly nationalist, or sexist -"

Permalink

"I think if they did they would not be co-opting local law lingo for it."
