"I'll keep that in mind. What's your name?"

Permalink

"Yuru."

Permalink

"Is there anything in particular I should be recommending you for if I have a friend in need of a demon?"

Permalink

"I can interpolate the legs off a fly at thirty paces?" Shrug.

Permalink

"How'd you come by that skill?"

Permalink

"I was bored!"

Permalink

He laughs. "You'll be the first name that comes to mind if I ever need to de-leg a fly!"

Permalink

"I keep trying to come up with a good extension of the 'what do you call a fly without wings' joke but I haven't got one."

Permalink

"A roll?" he suggests off the top of his head.

Permalink

"No, I leave the wings on usually. I guess if I didn't that would work."

Permalink

"The progression is more aesthetically pleasing if it's fly-walk-roll, definitely. Do you have a preferred payment method, in case I come up with a use for precision interpolation?"

Permalink

"Nothing specific."

Permalink

"All right. Well, thanks for your time." And he writes down this one's name and dismisses him and consults his estimate of the time and decides he'd better draw the circle for Cam now. Double-checking them eats almost as much time as the interviews themselves.

Permalink

Cam reappears.

Permalink

"And what were the results of your investigation?"

Permalink

"He's totally torturing people. Also, the mountains are solid granite, not that this was the primary object of investigation."

Permalink

"I feel very vindicated in my initial assessments."

Permalink

"Fought his dad for the kingdom thirteen years ago. He has a kid, who is a near-complete cipher to the public."

Permalink

"Interesting. Possibly bears further investigation. Wouldn't it be nice if we could make all Eianvar's problems go away with one tidy little assassination? Though I don't expect it to turn out to be that convenient. Things never are."

Permalink

"- shit, forgot to check if they have an afterlife here."

Permalink

"Hmm?"

Permalink

"I feel differently about assassinating people who will then go on to be, y'know, dead!"

Permalink

"I was not aware that there was another option!"

Permalink

"You said you had a family fairy, they didn't tell you?"

Permalink

"I would bet a considerable amount that she did not herself know!"
