Yeah. If.

If I was gotten, I can be sent, right? Stands to reason.

Permalink

...Well, theoretically.

Permalink

And my type of mage happens to do metamagic, isn't that fun.

Permalink

The problem is how dangerous experimenting would be.

Permalink

I can probably figure that one out, too.

Be very sure.

I might need to stare for a few hours or days, but I can be. Meantime, what were you asking about the magical thing around that guy's wrist?

Permalink

Oh, I was asking if you were an artifact user and that was how you blocked my telepathy.

Permalink

Oh, no. And artefacts are something else where I'm from.

Also: gosh that is such a pretty girl isn't it.

Does he like girls in slightly ridiculous, ostentatiously magical outfits? Then probably, yes.

What are artefacts like where you're from?

Permalink

As far as he knows the dress is just local fashion for people who do magic.

Any magical objects. One of the three kinds of actively magical people can create them by pushing a definition of an effect into it and then spending mana.

No one knows how to make our kind of artifact anymore.

Oh, lost knowledge of the Ancients, do I know this song.

Lots of spells and artefacts that we sometimes find lying around cannot be reproduced. People say it's because the Age of Gods is over or some such and the gods have left Galatea, but I say it's because nowadays people coincidentally think being a metamancer is a sin so no one ever uses us for what we could do, e.g. build fancy artefacts.

Think being a metamancer is a sin.

Permalink

Oh, yes. Or, well, just being one isn't, as long as you don't hold public office or do anything of import or ever ever perform any magic.

Her response is nonverbal and best described as the emotional equivalent of performing an anatomically impossible number of rude gestures at the same time while attempting to set the idea on fire.

Permalink

My thoughts exactly. Punishment for performing metamancy, or hiding a metamancer, is of course death.

Permalink

 

You're right. We do need to figure out a way back there.

Permalink

Mmhm. I want to fix that but that is a very long-term project.

Permalink

He grins at her. Meanwhile, any good projects I can help with, right here? What exactly did I walk in on, why were you fused with her and knocking out a dude?

Permalink

Long story. Short version is that sometimes magic users--not magical girls, but sorcerers and artifact users--get stuck in destructive emotional feedback loops, decide to do something horribly destructive, and have to be stopped before people get hurt.
