"I like it! What's the usual custom about how long you wear it?"

"Oh, it isn't very durable so you probably want to scrub it off before you go to bed tonight, it won't look nice in the morning," she replies.

Permalink

"Hmm." He can probably magic it more durable. ...Is it appropriate to thank her? He normally would for a question answered for free but that seems to just be the done thing here. "I'll tell my planet I like your facepaint," he says instead.

Permalink

"Ha, the whole planet? I'm just one lady at the bazaar," she laughs. "Have a good day!"

Permalink

"You too!"

He wanders off in the direction of the interesting-smelling weird meat thing, idly casting a spell on the facepaint to make it last.

Permalink

The interesting-smelling meat thing is covered in breadcrumbs and fried golden brown and served in paper cones. Would he like one?

Permalink

He'd love one! Also what are breadcrumbs.

Permalink

Crumbs... from bread? That place over there has bread! He's not gluten-intolerant, is he?

Permalink

"I suppose I'm about to find out if I am or not."

Permalink

"Well, first aid tent's over there if you react to something!" Paper cone of food.

Permalink

He tries it. It's a better way to have meat than some other ways he's tried. ...Actually, it's a better way to have meat than all other ways he's tried.

He hangs around in the vicinity of the first aid tent to finish it but doesn't turn out to have needed to.

And there was glass art. He goes and checks if there still is.

Permalink

There is! The person sells suncatchers and vases and colorful glass tables and lamps and beads.

Permalink

"Hi! Those are nice, how durable are they?"

Permalink

"Well, they're glass, so they might break if you drop them. The beads you'd probably have to step on, though, since they're little."

Permalink

"My empire found out about Vanda Nossëo recently and where I come from it's normal to have magic that could make them shatterproof. You interested?"

Permalink

"Huh! Sure, I guess so. Would it make them angel-proof if somebody got rid of one, I could see that being annoying."

Permalink

"Even if not by default maybe if I'm aiming for that - what exactly would an angel do?"

Permalink

"Turn it into air, usually."

Permalink

"I can leave a backdoor for that. If I do and the angel gets halfway through and drops it what's left wouldn't be shatterproof, but I'm guessing that's fine?"

Permalink

"Presumably! I usually don't think that much about end-of-life arrangements for my glass, honestly."

Permalink

"Makes sense. Anyway, I have useful magic, want to make me an offer?"

Permalink

"Hm - you're from that new place Har? I can probably mark up some of this, let's see, twenty percent if it won't break..." He does some figuring on his phone and comes up with a number.

Permalink

Ooh, a good number. "Can I take part of it in kind? I just think those look really cool," he says, gesturing at the suncatchers.

Permalink

"Sure, just deduct its price tag."

Permalink

He wards all the glass and picks out one of the suncatchers and asks if the glass vendor happens to know how people make friends around here.
