    The path is clear for the spell, and it goes through without any reaction from the platinum girl.

    Simple understanding of the spell presents itself to Fettina; the way it works, what she has to do with her own energy to enact the spell. It isn't so much that she has images and the like. It's more like a memory that she simply hasn't needed to use before. It's a fairly odd experience, but it should also jolt her into awareness.

The rest of these were gotten here in the Nexus; it's not that hard to find a bookstore that specializes in things mages might be interested in, and we're not exactly short on money."

    "I still did pay for half of this right?" Cessie asks while still looking around in wonder as she suddenly seems to come to think about something. "And, uh, I hope I didn't give the people at the university the wrong impression of myself did I?"

    "Not this," Harnel says, raising a finger, "This was my gift to you, and I paid for it all myself. As far as how the people at the university go? You didn't leave too much of an odd impression; most of the people there were watching me more than you anyways. With a donation, they were more than willing to copy out some of the books in the library. A process that's shortened from days to hours with the aid of magic."

    He goes over to one of the bookshelves and pulls a book entitled Magic in Relation to Mathematical Geometry off it, flipping open to the first page, before saying, "A lot of this stuff is completely over my head. I understand the basic concepts of how magic works, even across different worlds, but once you start adding math in, it's lost on me." He chuckles, "Hopefully you can make use of it though. And obviously we're going to be hiring tutors so that if any of our children show an interest, they can understand it."

    "Harnel... you really didn't need to, not with the house already being build." The mage replies as she walks up to him.

    Harnel smiles, putting the book back on the shelf and turning to his wife, "That's the point though, isn't it? All the bad marriages I've seen before are because the two people involved stop caring for each other, stop going out of their way to make the other happy. Doing only 'what you have to' is what leads to the stagnation. So I'm doing more than I have to, and I always will. I just figured I'd start off with something big."

    The sorceress smiles at him, "You really should have shown me this part last Harnel, I don't think any other part of the house could make me happier then this. It's simply perfect. It will take years before I can even look at all these books with the children on their way." She gently runs her hand along her waistline which have started to bulge a bit but that hardly noticeable underneath all her clothes.

    "This was a big part of the surprise! No way I could tell you before hand." Harnel says, grinning, "I figured I had to get this done before you got really pregnant though. It can be hard for a pregnant woman to move around a lot, so I figured if you had to be stuck in one place it may as well be with a massive collection of books." He shrugs, "For the record, I'm effectively at your beck and call for the next several months. Massages, getting together the orders to feed your cravings, whatever you need, I'm there for you."

    Cessie shakes her head, "I won't let the pregnancy beat me, don't worry. I can summon eldritch energy to lift myself up remember? Once I get that big I think I will just levitate whenever I like to go somewhere." She pauses with a grin, "A massage doesn't sound too bad though... but you should show me the rest of the house first."

    Harnel smiles, and puts his arm around Cessie as they tour the rest of the house. Finally, They'll come to the aerie on the roof, where, as if simply to be romantic for the two, the sun is about to set.

    The mage seems almost giddy as they reach the end of their tour, "Ah, so this is what you have been planning all along." She announces as they come up the stairs. "Seducing me at the aerie. Well, I won't fall so easily for your draconic wiles. You will have to work for it." She tells him in a mock tone.

    Harnel puts on an expression of mock surprise, "I have wiles?"

    Before giving her a chance to respond, he'll simply lean down to give her a long, passionate kiss. Seems as good a response as any

    Cessie was almost prepared for that and returns the kiss slowly with equal passion. As they eventually break off she turns to look out at the sunset and everything underneath it as her hand is gently caressing the scales down his back.

    "So how do you feel surveying your new kingdom? Any plans for the future? More children perhaps?" She asks suggestively with a coy smile.

    Harnel grins, "As many children as you're willing to have with me. I want as big a family as I can get." Harnel's own hands are on Cessie's hips as he too watches the sunset. It really is beautiful.

    "As many as I want? That's funny, I never even imagined one child and soon I got two. I'm not sure where I will stop honestly. Children are a lot of work after all." The mage replies as she looks out at the horizon. "We got to have a lot of servants if we are planning any more."

    "We'll see then, I haven't even given birth once yet after all. Twins are more then enough for now, I would have panicked about this a few years ago." Cessie admits. "Now... well, your helping me feeling more comfortable. It's still times I can hardly believe it."

    "I'm honestly pretty certain I'll be panicking too later on. But right now, I'm just basking in the wonderment. I have a wife, a home, children on the way, and more adamantine than I could have ever expected," Harnel says, and he leans down to give Cessie another kiss, this time longer and more passionate than before

    The mage warps her hands around Harnel as she returns the kiss and will then just stand there a while with her beloved. Kissing.

    Once they break off, Cessie breathes out softly and smiles, "I'm going to get something to eat... why don't you go down to our bedroom? I think we need to try out the beds."

There's also a few feet of rope and three man-sized cloth sacks, though I doubt Thomas would be interested in that junk.

    There is also a stain on the trunk-space of the van. A bloody stain. A captive must have been wounded back here...

    Tom, upon attempting to proceed into the bar shall find his route blocked by a burly, undead bouncer. I'm not sure how an undead creature retained his muscle mass what with atrophy and all those inconvenient principles of medicine, but whatever this guy tried, it worked out to his benefit.

    "And just what do you think you're doing, little man?"

    The bouncer growls. From the sound of it, I'd say he might be suffering from a touch of neural decay.

    Serious thread, then.

    [Fettina's Suite]

    "Yeah, that was me. I shared with you all the base images you can learn for the spell, like it was shared with me. but it's like doing anything; even if you can do it, you have to practice before you can do anything with it."

    Tina won't know her limit just yet. She'll understand that it's quite small, maybe a change in color or the warping of a couple bones. Nothing nearly on the scale Evan showed her earlier. But she'll also know that it won't take too long to get to that point anyways, maybe a few weeks if she constantly practices. More if she's concerned with other things, such as up to a few months.

    She'll also know that adjusting your body risks a whole lot. Changing body parts improperly can result in bones cracking, skin ripping, muscle tearing, and blood vessels popping. This is why Evan wanted to start with feet or hands; they're much easier to work with because they're quite far away from vital organs.

    Once he gets there, he starts setting things up. He rolls back the covers slightly, lights a pair of candles for ambiance, undresses himself, and climbs onto the bed on his side, evidently entirely ready to seduce.

    Oh, sure. AJ takes the blade and looks it over. Some forgotten skills seem to be coming back, because she examines the blade like a person who frequently used them. She even twirls it in her hand a little, checking the weight and balance of it.

    Not bad. She'll hand the weapon back to Myrmidon.

    Once she have used the bathroom and gotten something to eat, Cessie enters the bed room, happily surprised by the lit candles. "Ohh... how atmospheric, you never done this before." She says as she goes to walk over to the bed.

    "We've never had our own home before," Harnel says, grinning. His tail flicks up into the air for a moment, and his wings stretch, "Come, won't you join me?" He says this as seductively as he can. That isn't much, considering he has no experience with seduction, but still.

    "Uh... arright. Here we go." Tina concentrates, going for the 'or something' bit. She tries to change the color of her toenails to a bright orange. I'll let you decide if it works properly or not.

    However, unfortunately for the virus, Teq's insides do not work on the same principles as human life. In fact, unless Tobias understands the biology of a race tainted by the Far Realm, he probably didn't develop anything that can harm Teq. His cell walls allow the virus entry - likely before entrapping the impotent virions. They'll proceed to break each one down into it's base components of DNA and simple proteins.
    It's actually a spring trap, so it should be able to penetrate the glove. The syringe is removed from the satchel, but is just a typical modern one with no labels. Toby did spend a week in his lab creating the virus to specifically deal with Teq's DNA that he got from his blood, but sure, the imperfect bioweapon is neutralized.

    Cessie giggles coyly at Harnel's display, not really sure what she should think.
    "My, my, why don't you do this more often? I wish I felt that sexy myself." Pregnancy tended to make you feel like a swollen blob at times. <.<

    "Really, You don't?" Harnel seems genuinely surprised. He'll attempt to take Cessie's hand and pull her down into a kiss, before saying, "Because frankly, you seem more radiant to me now than ever before."

    Cessie let's herself being pulled into bed and into a kiss which she returns lovingly. "You do? But others then? Lately I've felt... I don't know. Alienated. Maybe it's my pregnancy but I have just wanted to close myself in. Like I don't really belong out there in the nexus."
