Millie pours herself a whisky and sips it while fixing Judy hot chocolate. "Thank you for - whatever that was. Are you a witch? - I won't tell anybody if you're black arts, my great-uncle was black arts."

Permalink

"Uh.  'Proximately."

Permalink

"...is there like a, gray arts...?"

Permalink

"Ye . . . es?  I don't know."

Permalink

"How would you not... know." She presents Judy with hot chocolate.

It is both very comforting and useful for covering up pauses while Judy thinks with sips.

. . . She still doesn't come up with any better questions, though.  Well, worst case she can teleport out of here and still go with her original plan.

"What like, are witches."

"...what do you mean what are witches."

Permalink

. . . . . . . . siiiiiiiiip hot chocolate.

Permalink

"...sorry. Witches are... people who cast spells? I'm not a witch, my college didn't even have craft classes."

Permalink

"And there's?  Black arts and white arts?  What are those."

Permalink

"Uh, black arts are the illegal traditions and white arts are the legal ones, basically..."

Permalink

"Oh.  Then, yeah, gray arts probably I guess."

Permalink

"What do gray arts... do?"

Permalink

"Uh, heal? ing?"

Permalink

"...yeah but the other kinds do that too, I mean, what's the specific deal -"

Permalink

 

" - I'm not really from around here," Judy starts.

Permalink

"...yeah, okay. Where are you... from."

Permalink

"Uh, northernish Ohio, originally.  But like - I don't know what sort of - fictional creatures?  Or, uh, not fictional?  Creatures, that you have here."

Permalink

"..........narwhals?" offers Millie after a silence.

Permalink

- Judy sporfles.  "Uh, no, I mean - don't freak out - " she is so totally ready to teleport away if Millie freaks out, and she's taking the hot chocolate with her, " - vampires?"

Permalink

"...you're a vampire?"

Permalink

"I mean - I don't know what your tropes are like here - or if they're real how those are - I'm not like evil or anything?"

Permalink

"I guess I - heh - I invited you into my house -"

Permalink

"I don't actually think you did in words explicitly but that doesn't actually matter for my kind; we're a lot - human-er, than most I've read about or seen in movies or whatever.  Er, more human."

Permalink

"Oh. And also you're drinking the hot chocolate."
