"Have you given any thought to what you want your tattoo to be like?" asks Aiu as they make their way through variously themed tents.

"I haven't a clue! I guess a bright color to fit in with my hair?"

Permalink

"Probably you'll want to mull it over a bit given that it's going pretty permanently on your body!  And also for the magic; tattoos are enough work to begin with that they usually incorporate a few effects.  Good health or strength or quickness or what have you."

"Can it make me need less sleep?" she asks, inclining her head toward Cathei.

Permalink

"You betcha!  My hammock already does that, actually; it can shave off up to half the time you need for regular sleep.  I usually leave it set to a quarter, though, because it trades off against the extra-rested feeling and that's a good spot where I don't have to smack myself about forgetting to adjust it when I stumble over in sewfall.  . . . The thing where seamsters can work for a really long time means we fall asleep right after and can't really be woken till we're done, that's called sewfall.  And magic can't touch it."

"Huh, why can't it?"

Permalink

"Well, at least no one's sewn anything that can yet."

Permalink

"I guess maybe somebody'll invent a way one day. Do you need a sewn thing to do the super fast sewing in the first place?"

Permalink

"Not - except for you, I think.  I guess there could be others I hadn't heard of."

Permalink

"Magic is so different here."

Permalink

"I like it a lot!  But anyways there are definitely tattoos that make you not need regular sleep at all, but I don't know whether Seamster Raxoncia knows how to do them or whether it would be possible to incorporate that into this one or if it would have to be separate."

"I like sleeping sometimes, I'd just like it to be easier to feed Cathei as often as she needs when she is not a teapot."

Permalink

"That makes sense!"

Permalink

"I think so too! I guess maybe enchanting her so she didn't need to eat as much might also work but she is too little to pick a tattoo."

Permalink

"You could do it with an artefact!  Or, I wonder if there's a way to see whether she gets hungry as a teapot; you could just take off the bonnet every once in a while."

Permalink

"Oh, good question."

Permalink

"Maybe if you fed her, and took it off for long enough that she'd normally be hungry . . ."

Permalink

"Yeah, I'll do that when we're done at the tattoo place."

Permalink

"We're almost there; another couple tents.  - Also I should explain how to navigate at some point.  Maybe not right now if you want to think about how you want your tattoo to be instead."

Permalink

"I think the tattoo artist might know better than I would what would look nice! Maybe a bird or something though... I would like to know how to get around."

Permalink

"Okay!  Um, honestly it's going to be harder for you, not being able to read or use pockets yet, but if you're in a pinch you can just ask anyone you see who doesn't look in too much of a hurry and they'll probably help.  But it'll be easier for them to do that if you have an address you're looking for and know a little bit about how they work.  An address is - basically a list of everywhere that a place is inside of, I guess.  Does that make sense?"

"Like if a thing is in a bag in a box in a room in a house in a town?"
