  1. Vesper glanced at Ryan dourly. Stuck out in the middle of nowhere with Ryan. Meh. But...then again, fuelling like, black magic with him? That...might not be the absolute worst. "Works for me. Long as you guys are sure it's what you want. I just work here."
  2. Vesper gave Izona a quizzical look, then shrugged. "You're going to have to be more specific. I've got more tricks now than I used to. But no, invisibility isn't my trick, it's Therion's. I can make people see things though." Another Vesper suddenly leaned in from behind Ryan and said in an ominous little whisper, "She's right, you know." When Ryan looked around to get a good look though, the 'other' Vesper was gone. The real one smirked. "The issue is that if I'm casting spells, and using my powers, I'm going to tire myself out really really fast."
  3. "If we get close enough, I can send Therion after him," Vesper muses. "If they can't use magic to see him coming it doesn't really matter if we lure him out. Might even be better if he feels safe. Sends his guards out to help fight. Then? Bam. The reaper comes knocking, and he has a big fucking...curvy sword on a stick."
  4. Vesper blinked, then nodded. That'd work too. Much easier from her perspective. "Okay, so we can still use our normal powers, just not the spells you taught us. Works for me." She looks at Yuuki. "You?"
  5. "More magi doesn't mean better magi," points out Vesper. She then asked Izona "How strong are we, compared to them? I know you guys said we know more kinds of magic, but..." She trailed off thoughtfully. "What if they didn't have any magic at all? Would that be a good thing? I mean, we might not either. Except the stuff we brought with us."
  6. Vesper shrugged at the question. "Pretty successful I guess," she sighed. "I'm out of smokes though. Did not bring a year's supply. Go figure." "Anyway, I'll tell you the rest." She nodded at Yuuki. "Whether it's mine to tell or not."
  7. "You know, this year..." Vesper paused, trying to find the right words. "...it means we're both like, a year older than we should be. We're actually going to die sooner than we would have." "...I'm gonna have that bath." She turned and swished away. Nailed it. For someone who didn't show a lot of enthusiasm towards baths, Vesper took her time once she was in one. She was fastidious about scrubbing, rinsing, then scrubbing again, until her pale skin was pinkish. Then she drained the water and refilled the tub to rinse in clean water. Then she finally was done. The magic was still on her mind. She wasn't sure what to make of it...kinda like when she'd first taken the 'Game Master's' deal and awakened to her psychic abilities. And the Therion, of course. That had been a thing. Like everything else, it just didn't feel 'real.' She could do these things, and knew how and why she could do them, but there was this disconnect between a world were things like that were possible, and the world she felt she lived in. Or maybe she just didn't feel like SHE fit in the world she lived in, and so nothing at all felt real? Was she even real? Vesper got dressed, going through the motions because it was easier than dealing with the consequences of not, and emerged from the bathroom. "Your turn, Yuuki."
  8. Vesper just nibbled at the food, watching and listening. Izona's interest in teaching them magic made sense now, but she couldn't shake the feeling there was a somewhat sinister edge to it. In any event, none of them controlled their own movement between worlds, so Izona was in for a disappointment...hopefully she wouldn't go mental over it or anything. The potsticker thingies were pretty good.
  9. Vesper found a spot to sit down while Izona talked and Yuuki...yuukied. There were a couple of things about Izona's story that seemed a little...weird to her. But then again, what about this situation wasn't weird? She reached back and took hold of her long, straight black hair and tugged it forward over her shoulder so she could absently play with the end of it. "Who taught you magic once you got here?" she asked.
  10. Vesper frowned a little. She was pretty sure Izona had said...meh, whatever. The important part was that they hadn't spent half a year vanished away. Her folks were going to think she'd run away from home. Would that be so bad? She wasn't sure. She'd turned and was starting to head back to her room when Yuuki's question caught Vesper's ear. The fledgeling witch paused and glanced back, a little curious about what the answer would be.
  11. Learning magic was...difficult for Vesper. Belief was a big part of it, and belief took trust. She wasn't deep into 'trust' as a concept. Seeing Yuuki easily grasp incantations and start creating effects only made it worse. Vesper got angry, and frustrated, and slipped back into using her own powers over and over again. Finally Izona just kept pushing...banishing the Therion and forcing Vesper to exhaust herself until her own powers were out of reach. The celestial didn't hold back, and in the heat of the moment Vesper feared for her life. Desperation, raw and primal, pushed past her usual apathy and she cast her first spell. Later, when she came to after being healed, she remembered that moment. From there her progress began. Unlike Yuuki, Vesper learned in fits and starts. She tended to get hung up at first, and then suddenly 'get it' and make up for all the lost time and then some. Her spells were tempestuous, tapping into the turbulent passions that she kept wrapped under her stoic demeanor. Subtlety was not her strength. Where Vesper shined was in the presentation, the imagination. When she concocted a spell to conceal herself behind illusory doubles, the doppelgangers each seemed animated by different imperatives...each one acting differently, even while imitating what Vesper was doing. Her explosion of fire was filled with the images of screaming skulls and writhing figures, as if damned souls danced within. When she summoned a storm, it was ushered in by a deathly reaper's silhouette in the clouds, and the harsh noise of electric guitars howling in the thunder. Finally, when they broke and Izona broke the news, Vesper frowned, not quite getting it. "Wait, so...why? Everyone out here has been waiting months even though we've only been training a week? That makes no sense. If anything it should be the other way around, with us training for months, but it only taking hours. What's even the point of doing it this way?"
  12. Vesper just smirked and leaned against the wall with her arms folded. She was ready to get started. If Izona wanted to know about her gift, she could ask. Same thing with foci really. They could pick that up as they went.
  13. "Badass," Vesper said, giving the black ball a closer look. "Chaos magic sounds pretty cool, actually." She then scrutinized each of the other little crystals in turn. Air seemed kinda...meh at first. Wee, windy... But then she thought 'air' could refer to sound too, right? Or like, storms, like thunderstorms. Dark clouds, angry lightning...cracks in the earth with plumes of fire jetting out. Then the baseline...bumbumbum bumbum bumbumbum bumbum bumbumbum... Sure, it was magic, not a music video, but that wasn't any reason you couldn't cast spells with some style, right? Hell no. Wands you shouted Latin at and shot little sparkles? Kids books. Nah, her Latin would be all deep and resonant, like a Gregorian chant you couldn't hear the source of. Just the words, pressing in on you, beating reality into a new shape like hot metal. Ugh. Ugh! Okay, cool off, V...don't kid yourself into thinking this isn't going to suck. Just go with it for now and see what happens. Vesper took a deep breath, banishing the growing anticipation she'd felt and fixing Izona with a deadpan stare. "So what now?"
  14. Vesper gave Yuuki a flat look. She had history, math and science on her phone? Like physically on it? She brought out her iPhone and tossed it, and its earbuds, onto the table alongside Yuuki's phone. "Ten gigs of thrash metal and a PDF copy of the Anarchist's Cookbook," she said. "Take it or leave it." Ah shit, the cat vids! Maybe she won't notice. "There's stuff we can TELL you too though," Vesper added. "Like, with actual human interaction or something."
  15. So it's as boring as a public library, with an annoying salesperson from Hot Topic lurking inside. Is this Middle Earth or Hell on Earth? In deference to the delicate sensibilities of Yuuki, and because she wanted something out of this whole arrangement, Vesper kept that comment from leaking out audibly...though it did make her smile just a little as she said, "Hey." Yuuki shot her an aggrieved look, and with an eyeroll, she added, "I'm Vesper. We're here to learn magic or something."
