"Phobias you can do exposure therapy but that'd be kind of playing with fire."

"I don't know if people can get better at it with practice. Melkor could forestall it but I have no idea how. I - if we had an escape route, even if it was stupid and ill-advised, so that it was 'we're making a strategic decision to stay' instead of 'we're trapped and waiting for them to find a pretext to kill us' -"

"Remember when I said I could rig the library to explode? Exploding's easy. Wall'd come right down. We'd kill a bunch of guards and panic literally everybody but the wall is not in any way the problem here."

"Thanks. That helps. The thing to look out for, for what it's worth, is gradually increasing adrenaline levels. Usually that's under our control but - not when you're trapped. If that admits of a medical solution that might do it too."

"Wrong side of my Manton limit have you tried yoga."

Permalink

"I have not tried yoga."

Permalink

"...it's sort of the stereotypical thing out-of-touch mentally healthy people say to anybody with anxiety disorders or whatever, but who knows, might actually do something."

Permalink

"No harm in trying."

"You probably won't get any benefit from the flexibility thing, you can probably tell your ligaments and whatnot to shut up and stretch however you want."

Permalink

"People do still pick up skills by practicing them. You have to know very precisely what you're doing to do things that way. But - I wouldn't generally consider yoga a good use of time, no."

Permalink

"I think the other standards are like... hot baths, Tai Chi... herbal tea? Massages..."

Permalink

"We were going to figure out plumbing anyway. I don't know if there's tea. Humans do massages? Elves do but I haven't seen that since I got here."

Permalink

"Yeah there's the like, amateur slumber party shoulder rub version and there's pros."

Permalink

"Maybe someone really wants to see one of the movies they were showing on the first legs of my ill-fated flight to Vancouver and happens to be a pro. You probably have better things to do than bot it."

Permalink

"Yeah. Kinda hardwarey. I had help with my suit, I had to get it from Armsmaster but it was still help."

Permalink

"I bet I have most of a year anyway, at least. It's not that small a space - super ugly but that wouldn't do it all by itself."

Permalink

"Once we have more slack in general we can pretty up bits of it. Library's mostly intact."

Permalink

"Reminds me of the Simurgh. But yeah."

Permalink

"We can also look for somewhere else. The books might be handy though, sans Internet."

Permalink

"And I know my way around and it doesn't have lots of people coming and going."

Permalink

"Yeah. I'm sorry. I'd be having a harder time in London."

Permalink

"Then I'm glad we're not in London. You have more leverage in this situation than me - honestly if they dropped me alone I'd just prettify a building and go for long runs at night until my heart gave out -"

Permalink

"If I were alone I'd probably just get jumped in the middle of the night - the thing I mean is not 'I'm glad you're here' but -"

Permalink

"- I'm glad I'm here. Well. I'm glad I got dragged to Earth, and everything else followed from that and I'm really really glad you don't need to worry about getting jumped in the middle of the night."
