"That's a shame. Guess I'll have to work up even more envy for the next try, hope I get something I can use."
Dottie needs to- calm down, and make himself useful, and try to gauge her opinions on the justice system, and criminals who are unlikely to re-offend, and then- then he can tell her, and hopefully, using a better version of precog, he can steer that conversation until he's got something they can work with. If he does this right, he can be responsible for first contact with an alien civilization, he can get on the ground floor of accelerated magical development in two magic systems, and he can stop the end of the world. This is everything he would have ever dreamed of, before the desire for revenge became something that motivated him even more.

"So, besides Gift, I think we do want to figure out if Churn is safely scalable. Do you have any ideas for how we should research what exactly went wrong in Chant? I'm thinking it could be as simple as hiring postcogs and climate scientists- not cheap, not something I can do just yet, but I'd like to have a plan before I'll need it. And I was wondering if you've got any thoughts on what people might pay for a chanting of Gift- it's obviously not perfect, and it can be variable, but usually the result is closer to yours than mine with precog."
