"Well he will be later but for now Da's regent, Gregor's not old enough."

"Would resurrection mess up your succession a whole lot because the peal'll find us eventually and they have resurrection."

"I have some practice helping Barrayar adapt to things and I would be happy to consult with them on how to introduce resurrection in a minimally disruptive way."

Nod nod.

"Gregor is great, he should probably be emperor when he's grown up assuming he is still great then."
Permalink

"We're gonna have resurrection a long time before he's grown up unless magic people grow up faster than normal humans and I'm assuming if they did someone would have noticed."

Permalink
"Yeah, someone would've noticed that. Da's a good regent though."

Nod nod. Conjuring for books on runecasting.

"And so am I!" says Nika. "And also there are alternate universe version of me and he knows eight of them and he came and found me because of that."

Simon almost speaks this time, and then instead just. Looks at Cordelia.
Permalink
"I invite you to think of a suitably conclusive example to conjure."
Permalink
"What information is required to identify an item for conjuration...?"
Permalink

"Uh, pretty much anything that uniquely identifies it. Also I can't decrypt but if it has ever been accessed unencrypted I can get that."

Permalink
He gets an abstracted look for a fraction of a second, then suggests, "The last three memos I wrote before coming here?"
Permalink

"Format?"
