LittleRedSpark: so youve talked to banshee i hear
HalfBreed15: I didn’t think she’d tell you that.
HalfBreed15: I would have done the same thing, if I were in her position.
LittleRedSpark: yeah you seem the type
LittleRedSpark: what with the specialty in protection
HalfBreed15: And spirits.
HalfBreed15: For now.
HalfBreed15: With any luck Napoleon might be able to teach me a few tricks.
HalfBreed15: I’m looking into scrying.
LittleRedSpark: whoa i heard thats hard
LittleRedSpark: can napoleon do it
HalfBreed15: To a point.
HalfBreed15: The principles of past, present, and future scrying are all the same though.
HalfBreed15: I just need a little help with the basics.
LittleRedSpark: i guess i know who to call if i need any help reading the future
HalfBreed15: Maybe. We’ll see how my training goes first.
LittleRedSpark: i believe in you
LittleRedSpark: so do you create your own spells or what?
LittleRedSpark: like how did you get into what youre doin
LittleRedSpark: was it the shinigami?
HalfBreed15: No. I don’t think Soul Society is even aware of human magicks.
HalfBreed15: It was by chance, really. I got a job in a handy shop, and the owner happened to be a practitioner.
HalfBreed15: She specializes in ink magic, mostly. If she can draw it, she can do it.
LittleRedSpark: oh thats cool
LittleRedSpark: so shes your mentor?
HalfBreed15: After a fashion. She taught me the basics. Protection was just a personal interest that worked out.
HalfBreed15: I’m pretty good with elemental stuff, too, though I use it less.
HalfBreed15: There’s no real need.
LittleRedSpark: thats cool
LittleRedSpark: i had to do it on my own
LittleRedSpark: the guy who does magic in the area took a vow not to pick a side
LittleRedSpark: and i picked a side so
LittleRedSpark: he wont teach me
HalfBreed15: I’m sure you could find another tutor if you wanted.
LittleRedSpark: nah i do just fine on my own
LittleRedSpark: its more fun when i have to research myself
LittleRedSpark: besides if he was teaching me hed try to limit me
LittleRedSpark: hes terrified i might go dark side
HalfBreed15: What, like blood magic?
LittleRedSpark: who knows
LittleRedSpark: i mean ive looked into it
LittleRedSpark: but im a curious guy
LittleRedSpark: knowing is not the same as using
LittleRedSpark: i like to keep informed
HalfBreed15: I can understand that. But you realize how it looks to an outsider.
HalfBreed15: Particularly one who sees himself as a mediator.
LittleRedSpark: how do you know hes a mediator?
HalfBreed15: He sounds like the type.
HalfBreed15: At the very least, keeping himself separate from both sides only means he can exercise his own will.
HalfBreed15: Those people are the most dangerous, unless you know their ethics.
LittleRedSpark: i like you
HalfBreed15: Thank you.
LittleRedSpark: what are your ethics?
HalfBreed15: Keep my people safe.
LittleRedSpark: any means necessary?
HalfBreed15: Any means necessary.
LittleRedSpark: even if its technically evil?
HalfBreed15: What constitutes as evil?
LittleRedSpark: mass murder
LittleRedSpark: cant really think of anything else
HalfBreed15: I doubt it would ever come to that.
HalfBreed15: People seem to like me if I can talk to them.
HalfBreed15: Unagiya thinks I might have some latent persuasive ability.
LittleRedSpark: so spirits protections and persuasion
LittleRedSpark: scrying soon to be added
LittleRedSpark: oh and didnt you mention something about elements?
HalfBreed15: Yeah. Only fire and earth, though.
HalfBreed15: Water is hard, and air is iffy at best.
LittleRedSpark: youve got a lot of skills
LittleRedSpark: what do you plan to do with all of it?
HalfBreed15: No idea. Right now I mostly help Unagiya on jobs.
HalfBreed15: When I have the time I sell protective jewelry at a market a few towns over.
HalfBreed15: I’ve blessed a few houses.
HalfBreed15: Mostly I’m finding things to do during idle hours.
LittleRedSpark: by attempting to master difficult spellcraft
LittleRedSpark: i can respect that
HalfBreed15: What about you? What’re your preferred magicks?
LittleRedSpark: well im pretty good with certain weather magic
LittleRedSpark: i handled that poltergeist thing a little while back
LittleRedSpark: im a decent hand at illusions
LittleRedSpark: in theory i can talk to plants
LittleRedSpark: theyre not very good conversationalists though
HalfBreed15: That’s amazing.
LittleRedSpark: mostly im just protecting my town rn
LittleRedSpark: with any luck i’ll be out of here soon though
LittleRedSpark: this place is fucking crazy
HalfBreed15: I understand. I’m quite certain Karakura was built on a Hellmouth of some sort.
HalfBreed15: The strangest things happen here.
HalfBreed15: And for no reason.
HalfBreed15: Where would you go?
LittleRedSpark: my mom had a house in poland
LittleRedSpark: technically it’s mine now
HalfBreed15: That’s nice.
LittleRedSpark: i already know the language and ive got a few cousins around there, so id be set
LittleRedSpark: id have a home base and be able to travel all over
HalfBreed15: I’ve been thinking similarly.
HalfBreed15: I think I could live comfortably handling the occasional IEA job and selling my stuff.
LittleRedSpark: probably the iea pays well
HalfBreed15: They opened an account for me because I keep solving things for people.
HalfBreed15: The bank sent me a statement the other day.
LittleRedSpark: how much?
HalfBreed15: More than I deserve.
LittleRedSpark: think of all the stuff you could buy at comic con!
HalfBreed15: I could buy Comic Con.
LittleRedSpark: thats the spirit!
HalfBreed15: On the subject of spirits…
HalfBreed15: Have you heard any lore of human things harmful to them?
LittleRedSpark: holy water, but that depends on what kind of spirit
LittleRedSpark: burning the remains will kill them, i think
HalfBreed15: I was testing out a new design for a pair of glasses.
HalfBreed15: They were supposed to help me see beyond the human world.
HalfBreed15: I discovered I had three shinigami tailing me.
LittleRedSpark: shit what did you do?
HalfBreed15: Banished two of them.
HalfBreed15: Apparently the spell didn’t work the way I thought it did, because rather than return them to Soul Society, it opened a door to hell and dragged them in.
HalfBreed15: The spell is supposed to keep spirits from entering your land.
HalfBreed15: I guess that’s how?
LittleRedSpark: thats really intense
LittleRedSpark: wheres the third guy?
HalfBreed15: Unagiya let me put him in the basement.
HalfBreed15: For experimental purposes.
LittleRedSpark: youre okay with that?
HalfBreed15: He threatened my family if I didn’t let him go.
LittleRedSpark: oh nm fuckin kill him
HalfBreed15: I will.
HalfBreed15: Like I said, I’m trying to figure out what works.
HalfBreed15: Actually, I should probably get started soon...
LittleRedSpark: i wont stop you
LittleRedSpark: have fun
LittleRedSpark: leave no trace
HalfBreed15: Words to live by.
