"You can read it when I'm done, I haven't decided if she's a crackpot yet."

"Could I perhaps help figure it out? Are there any testable consequences?"

Permalink

"Ostensibly but I'm not good enough at breaks to try the things."

Permalink

"Yeah I'll definitely want to read that later, then.

"So I was thinking. What if I invented words for all the things I mean when I talk about magic? Would that help?"

Permalink

"No, we can't do recent conlangs or codes. It might work if you - lawfully came up with neologisms."

Permalink

"Lawfully?"

Permalink

"Compound words in a way the language allows compounds to be constructed, or affixes, or both. And then if you use them in a way that's closely enough related to the source words, they might snap into place right."

"Hmm... supradimension for the thing I'm analogising to a dimension...?"

Permalink

"Yeah, exactly."

Permalink

"Did that one work then? If I turn your magic around the X supra-axis a little bit and move it along the y supradimension I can see your fire magic more clearly..."

Permalink

"...it doesn't help that much because they don't refer to concepts I already have but they're working, yes."

"Is there anyone other than Keo I could bother about maybe bouncing a couple subjective experiences to you? Maybe a wizardry spell - although maybe your analysis will be sufficient and I should just let you work on it while I work on a vocabulary - and maybe then draconic would come up with the appropriate words I could borrow..."

"Wizardry hasn't got anything like that."

"Pfeh. I have a mana source now, I'll figure out how to translate the stuff to words and send them to you mentally," she shrugs, and resumes the oft-forgotten endeavour of eating.

Permalink

"Sounds good to me."

Permalink

After food, she goes to check whether anyone replied to her ads about otherworldly trinkets.

Permalink

A museum and someone who doesn't explain their interest!

Permalink

Are both of them interested in all trinkets or just specific ones? Are they paying well?

Permalink

The mystery buyer only wants one but doesn't care which; the museum wants all of them.

Permalink

Mmm... did mystery buyer leave contact information? Can she send the museum a letter to ask if they're okay having one less item?

Permalink

Both can be contacted by mail!

Permalink

She sends them mail! She is asking Mystery Buyer, out of curiosity, what they intend to do with the artefact; museum's message is as stated before.

Permalink

Mystery Buyer says they're a collector. The museum is still interested in less than the complete set but will pay less for it.
