"The invisibility thing happens a lot, s'pposedly. Cause people just ignore people."

Permalink

"...And that makes them invisible?"

Permalink

Unhappy giggle. "I realize that doesn't actually make any sense."

"Lotsa things don't, it turns out. I know a kid who accidentally caused a bunch of people's dreams to become real because he was stuck in a coma. I'm more surprised that it keeps happening, I guess."

"There is a secret CIA invisible assassin program and as far as I can tell it's entirely high school students who got ignored until they were invisible. The lady who picked me up said that having parents who aren't home much was a risk factor. - I said no. I'm not a CIA assassin. I think if I were I'd go to the summer camp for the invisible CIA assassins. I said I didn't want to kill people - I don't even want to bother people -"

"...gosh. Same here, honestly, I think whatever process picks the slayer doesn't take into account whether someone wants to fight people or not. Uh - I'm Karen. If I forgot to say earlier."

"I was Margaret but I'm considering picking a new name. Since. What do you do, don't they make the Slayer kill vampires?"

Permalink

"Yeah, I gotta stop 'em from murdering people. It's sad, though. Especially because some of them are only - you know that statistic about how sixty or ninety or whatever percentage of people will commit fraud or steal from their employers under the right circumstances? Vampires are like that with torture and murder. Keep the circumstances wrong for them and some of them are sort of chill, though. - like, they'll totally try to kill you if they can, don't go trying to make friends by yourself, but - I dunno. They're people, and I don't like having to kill people, even the ones that aren't very nice."

"People are never very nice."

Permalink

"I dunno. Some of them surprise you. None of them are nice all the time, I think."

Permalink

"Some of them surprise you with how nice they areyou're pretty and thin and have superpowers."

Permalink

"I guess that's fair. I guess it's hard to tell how pretty someone is when they're invisible. At least the government seems to think that counts as having superpowers?"

Permalink

"I think they just didn't know what to do with me when I said I didn't want to go to assassin school. They made it sound like all invisible kids want to go to assassin school."

Permalink

"Huh. Sorta didn't expect peer pressure to be a huge factor when deciding whether to be a government assassin, but then I guess I didn't expect a lot of things about high school. But invisibility is totally a power, I bet it has all kinds of useful applications."

"My dad said he figured I'd run off to be a whore which is funny because that's one of the jobs it doesn't really help with, I think."

Permalink

" - wow, that sucks. I was thinking more, like, if you were a police officer then you could tail criminals without them noticing you? Or, ooh, if you were a wildlife biologist then I bet some kinds of animals wouldn't notice you, so it'd be way easier to tag them and get info on what they were doing."

Permalink

"Animals mostly have good hearing and smell."

Permalink

"Yeah, it'd only work on specific kinds. ...maybe you could be a private investigator and people could pay you to get witness accounts of their abusive parents or boyfriends or whoever. - I'm just saying, I'm pretty sure invisibility is a known superpower. Martian Manhunter has it. Although I guess he can also fly. And it - it'd be a lot harder, if you didn't get any say in it and couldn't turn it off."

Permalink

"No one cares about witness accounts of abusive parents or boyfriends anyway."

Permalink

"I feel like someone somewhere must. But if not then I think people would need an invisible superhero helping them even more."

Permalink

 

"What's the Martian Manhunter? That's a stupid name."

Permalink

"Kinda is. He's one of the Justice League members. - I know it's dorky."

Permalink

"Is that a real thing?"

Permalink

She giggles. "No, no. Man, I wish. They're comic book people. Superman and Batman and people. I guess I don't have a ton of real-world superhero role models."

Permalink

"Nah it's better they're not real, because, like, they'd ruin it."
