"Awwww. Though perhaps a bit sensible."

"Makes laying Grandma to rest in the plot next to Grandpa a bit less fraught."

Permalink

"One advantage."

"Of course, Grandma doesn't usually get buried with an ancient and powerful sword, either."

Permalink

"That's fairly uncommon, too - magic swords are pricey and not very useful if you're not fighting all the time."

Permalink

"But you have them at all."

Permalink

"Yeah! Honestly I couldn't even begin to list all the things you can do with magic items..."

Permalink

"Make you smarter, purify water, keep food fresh, make you springier, heal you..."

Giggle. "Alright, fair."

She pats the circlet. "Maybe you should have kept this on."

"I do have spells that can do something similar... Though they're more temporary."

Permalink

"What else can you do?"

Permalink

"Hmmm... For spells - see magic, make lights, repair items, a couple minor tricks, send silent messages... Some minor healing, some divination - like learning about someone from their blood, or watching them from a distance. Can speed myself up, perfectly memorize information, see invisible things... And my performances can be magic, with a pretty wide variety of effects - though the easiest is laying or breaking enchantments. I also have unusually good recall."

"So pretty much a grab-bag."

"Huh." They get to a convenience store with an ATM inside. She swipes her card and punches in her PIN, and after brief consideration, withdraws the balance of her account.

"Say, is there any good music on this rock?" she asks, somewhat idly.

Permalink

"Some people think so. What are your tastes?"

Permalink

"Hmmm... Bouncy, fun, good music to kiss pretty girls to..."

Permalink

She laughs. "Some people would say that kissing a pretty girl makes almost anything sound good."

Permalink

"Well... Depends on the girl."

Permalink

"Ah, so you're a woman of taste."

Permalink

"Very discerning taste."

Permalink

"I'll see if I can think of anything worthy."

Permalink

"Much appreciated."
