"Like, Siurek thinks his poor son doesn't have enough fun in his life, he'd be delighted if some girl disappeared from the dungeon into Korva's wing and came out dead a few hours later. Nirue would guess that it was a mercy killing but she'd have no reason to guess interdimensional shenanigans."

"Augh," mutters Sindri. "Yeah, sounds like it'd work."

"Life at court is so glamorous."

Permalink

"It sounds it. D'you have, like, painless assisted suicide methods, or should I give you something."

Permalink

"The ways it's possible to kill prisoners are kind of specific."

"- explain?"

"So in addition to leashes there's something called a suicide ward - standard version is they can't be killed unless it's on purpose by one of a short list of people and in a particular subset of ways. Korva makes the list because his father keeps hoping he'll discover the joys of torturing people to death. Nirue likes to keep an eye out for people tripping their suicide wards and then punish them for trying to escape."

"Okay. Does the particular subset of ways explicitly forbid being unconscious or anesthetized at the time."

Permalink

"I wouldn't want to chance it."

Permalink

"I'm starting to feel like this place is expressly designed to make me feel useless."

Permalink

"Reihar Nirue is a horrible person."

Permalink

"That I started feeling a while ago."

"So... me and Korva should both do a summon just in case, and then I should go find somebody for us to mercy-kill, and then maybe we have somebody sneak up on Nirue and turn her to stone in her sleep and hope that works?"

"- Nirue might notice if her curse thing were still attached to a dead person, if dying didn't shake it -"

"...mm. True."

"How comprehensive is the sensory deprivation thing because you wouldn't believe how good assistive technology can get."

"If she just leashes my senses individually then I'm just missing whatever she took. If she shuts down everything I can't even sense light - I'm a Light mage, she just keeps my magic leashed all the time so I can hardly ever use it."

Permalink

"Presumably she is voluntarily immortal. If we just launched her into space all by herself then even if she survived a black hole she'd get bored sooner or later, wouldn't she?"

Permalink

"She might figure out how to come back."

Permalink

"That seems less plausible than some hypotheses."

Permalink

"What do you mean?"

Permalink

"Space is big and things in it move fast."

Permalink

"It's just been a very strong guiding principle of my life never to underestimate Nirue especially when she is pissed off."

Permalink

"Not unreasonable."
