"...if you think that makes it better, sure."

"I like to think we'd get along even if he no longer wanted to kiss me but I do like that he does."

"It just seems - offensively pointless - is that also something he might change if magically given the opportunity - "

"Well, no one here is likely to nudge him past multisexual, at the very least.  Should I be . . . trying to think of things to say, as," she makes a slightly different flavor of unhappy face, "a relative authority figure?"

"I don't think so, but thanks."

"I wouldn't actually want to prevent either of you from making endorsedly preferred changes, but . . . there are so many things that could be different, and delicately so, if you somehow turned up with it, and even disregarding the intended results I have concerns and would prefer to either consult closely with you or find someone mutually trustworthy to do that instead.  For the record."

"What things do you have in mind that could be delicately different?"

Permalink

"We don't have many records of what the earliest versions of the copying power were like and there have been centuries of work put into making them all more convenient and useable.  Bringing someone with a very narrow version back up to par is something we know how to do quite confidently, but it's still . . . . working with something metaphorically tame.  And even if yours were exactly the same I wonder if it'd be possible to miss something important that all our children know not to do from having grown up here."

"Seems plausible. - Kids inherit copied traits, right? It's plausible that this is just a - mutation that achieved fixation, ultimately. In which case we'd never get it."

"I certainly am not going to make any plans which rely on you acquiring it.  I was thinking we could go over your medical knowledge tomorrow."

Permalink

"Sure. Not even slightly a doctor but I know germ theory and stuff."

"Maybe I should . . . the two of you should tell me everything you know about what aspects of physiology drugs affect; I should bring in some people to copy all of those of you, and then we should test any drug which you might need to use on people who can copy off the effects if something goes wrong."

"Biology is pretty notoriously complicated."

"We could . . . also then give you a very low dose of the ones that seemed alright, and see if the reaction matches there?  Not necessarily tomorrow, just, I'd like to have as much information as possible before any of this comes up on its own even a little bit."

Permalink

"I'm not sure that will be as informative as you might hope, a lot of things self-correct at small doses that can't at large doses, but we can try it."

Permalink

"Oh.  I - hm."

Permalink

"Hm?"

Permalink

"I just didn't know that and I'm fretting a touch about the general category it represents."

Permalink

"Oh. Yeah, bodies are kind of a disaster when you don't have magic or sufficiently high technology propping them up."

Permalink

"Well, we'll do everything we can to get sufficient in this regard quickly."

Permalink

"Glad to hear it."

"Just out of curiosity, were you planning to tell Kyeo.  About - "

"About what?"
