"It's one of the things you have to change manually before you can vamp, along with it being safely digestible in quantity.  It's not like, compellingly delicious or anything."

"Huh. I have always specifically disliked the way blood smells." Shrug. "Do you want to ask Nechar or should I? You'll be better able to answer his questions, presumably."

Permalink

"Yeah, I can.  Up to you if you feel like tagging along."  She heads Security-ward.

Permalink

Cam stays behind.

Nechar is eating cheesecake and reading a book in the Security office when she gets there.

"Hey.  Want some additional magic, by chance?"

Permalink

"Maybe? What kind?"

Permalink

"Uh, mine, I guess?  If I drink some of your blood we each get a finite pool of magic that can be spent on a bunch of different things."

Permalink

"And then it's gone unless you drink some more?"

Permalink

"Yeah.  I think it goes away on its own after a couple weeks even if you don't use it, too."

Permalink

"What's the magic useful for?"

Permalink

"Lots of stuff that overlaps with what you can do, only not as good . . . um, not quite seeing the future, but being able to tell what would happen in people-focused hypotheticals; mental stuff like better attentional capacity or more memory or faster thought; needing less sleep or water or food . . ."

Permalink

"I'm not at escape velocity on sleep yet, so that would be good, I suppose."

Permalink

"Cool.  Uh, I'd appreciate it if you felt like using some of it for something we're trying to do but that's not like, conditional; offer's open either way."

Permalink

"What are you trying to do?"

Permalink

"I want to try this with Cam too but we don't know if it might mess up his demon magic, so we were going to check it with the hypotheticals thing.  I could do it myself but not for a few hours yet and I'm feeling very impatient right now, to be honest.  And also we want to see whether me drinking somebody's blood that he conjures gives that person magic, but that might not be till next time and wouldn't need you to spend any magic."

Permalink

"I'd want to be positive it won't mess up the magic I already have."

Permalink

"Super reasonable.  Don't suppose the fact that you're, uh, 'categorically sufficient' security is any indication on that front?"

Permalink

"I think that means I can stop you drinking my blood, not that if you do it won't cause a shift change."

Permalink

"Gotcha.  Well, we've got kind of a long list of stuff to check, but do you want me to put this on it?'

Permalink

"I'll think about it, you can come ask me when you get to it on the list."

Permalink

"For sure.  Thanks for your time."  And back out to Cam.  "He doesn't wanna risk it either, for now."

Permalink

"It is a substantial proposition."

Permalink

"Definitely.  Um, I think I might get dinner and vampire books from Bar now, if that's okay with you?  Or unless there was anything else you wanted to go over."

Permalink

"No, be my guest."

Permalink

"Okay."

She'll take recommendations for everything except the drink, which she would like to be water in a diner cup please.
