"The False Sage is younger than he was."

"Nothing we can do about that, unless you think we want to try and storm the Mayhem Machine again."

"I think that would be extremely unwise; I assume there is consensus on this?"

"Looks like there is. One thing I'm wondering about, though -"

He extends his left hand, on which is a gauntlet of orichalcum and coral and gleaming blue glass.

"Sorry to be the really cynical one here, but why is a fifteen-year-old with no other powers running around with the magic healing artifact? Instead of someone bulletproof?"

"The ring is a free-willed individual -"

"Who we can present the evidence to, so she can decide herself."

"- and It is my professional estimation that it would damage relations between them and us if we requested -"

"... So, Minerva, is it just that you're afraid to ask?"

"TIDEBRINGER!"

"Sorry, that was out of line."

"... Apology accepted. Tidebringer, I have not asked because I do not, in fact, think it would be sensible to ask.

The assailant is Minerva, on a rooftop, under a thin illusion of being a person holding a stunner. The illusion isn't very believable.

Permalink

-Oh! Right, practice ambush.

She swoops back down, armor still up, and stops about 50 feet away, waving. 

Permalink

Minerva keeps her hand pointed at her and fires another stun-bolt.

Then, a tiny fraction of a second behind that, fires a bright blue laser (at a very low intensity) the exact color of her armor.

Permalink

She quickly makes a round shield in front of her, which blocks the stun-bolt easily-
