Figuring dragon powers out takes a while, but eventually they find that, in his dragon form, Temple is completely incapable of using the Cards or scrolls. Using magic in general is, in fact, much harder. The upside, however, is that he's incredibly resistant to magic in general, and the drawbacks of using runes or running out of mana are much milder. He has mixed feelings about all of this. Learning about runes and more magic does serve as a pretty nice consolation prize, and dating the twins is an unalloyed positive that completes the package.

They capture the Libra, the Sword, the Float, the Lock, the Sweet, and the Bubbles between then and winter holidays, and then it's, well, winter holidays, and Christmas is approaching.

Temple's mom is slowly becoming more accepting of the magic business. She is eventually talked into experimenting a dragon medallion; it doesn't work, which means Temple's dad is a dragon. They don't know what to make of that. Temple learns how to fly in dragon form - just in time for it to be helpful with the Float.

Learning how to runecast is the best thing ever (no mana limitation, just a lot of math)! And they learn how to make simple scrolls that are profitable, which means they have money for nice Christmas gifts.

On Christmas Eve they all gather together at the twins' flat, Sadde's mother for the first time.

Permalink

They are both very extremely welcomed!

Most definitely so! They use the Cards to create the most amazing Christmas Party ever! The Illusion is used to create a Christmas Wonderland. The Wood, The Flower and The Glow provide a stunning Christmas tree! And thanks to the Sweet they have heaps of candy that you can practically dive into.

Felix wears the Ugly Christmas Sweater to end all Ugly Christmas Sweaters; it lights up and plays music.

"That's adorable," Sadde says after greeting Felix with a kiss.

"I know! I try, I have spares because Isaac's was too small and Fenris refused to wear his for some unfathomable reason."

"I refuse to wear that much glitter just on principle," Fenris says before kissing her.

Laura has pie!

"Hello. It is a pleasure to finally meet you two. My daughter has told me a lot about you."

Permalink

The pie is accepted!

"The pleasure is ours. Thank you for coming."

Permalink

"And she only had nice things to say about you."

Permalink

"Now that is the most unbelievable part of this whole affair."

Permalink

Sadde rolls her eyes affectionately.

Permalink

"At any rate, come in and make yourselves comfortable."

Permalink

They do! The place's really lovely.

Permalink

They offer the opinion that Sadde is lovely.

Permalink

Temple agrees! He arrived earlier and has been observing Kero working his way through the piles of candy.

Permalink

So. Much. Candy!

Permalink

Laura peers at Kero.

Permalink

"...what?"

Permalink

She smiles and shakes her head.

Permalink

Temple is enjoying the candy as well.

(At a considerable more sedate pace than Kero.)

The Sweet is the best card ever!

(They no longer need to relocate a fraction of their budget on Candy for Kero.)

Permalink

And eventually it is time to exchange gifts!

Felix gets Sadde a book! "The Creations and Exploits of Clow Reed: A Historical Perspective on the Myth"

Permalink

She makes an inhuman noise. "Oh. My. God. This is a thing that exists," she says, staring at the book in awe. "This is amazing I can't believe there are books about me!" She jumps up and down and throws her arms around Felix's neck to kiss him.
