    "You've never tried to publish a book before, have you?" Aiden says, starting to get a little annoyed at what he perceives as Vierzt not knowing what he's talking about. "Publishers don't want to take a risk on me, especially not in the Nexus where books are long-obsolete."

    I guess. Never read a book before. Don't know how. But if that was true, how would anyone get started with their first novel?

    Aiden sighs. Of course Vierzt didn't know what he was talking about, he couldn't even read. "Where I come from, a writer tries over and over and over until someone takes pity on them. This isn't where I come from, though, and I have to see any sort of publisher in the Nexus, let alone the pity-taking type."

    Vierzt shrugs. Dun't need to be a publisher, if you want it mass produced. Just go to someone big in Nexus. Magtok, Ilpholin, Dipsnig... all have a lot influence and fame.

    Aiden gives Vierzt a very flat look. "You want me to go to people who would kill me as soon as look at me and ask them to spread a book around?" He shakes his head and keeps serving drinks.

    Vierzt raises an eyebrow. Maybe it's just me, but they don't seem threatening. To me, at least. Should I go with you for protection?

    Vierzt seems half-joking, -half-serious.

    Vierzt looks Aiden straight in the eye.

    Why? It makes sense. If you don't want to try to publish a book, then you must not be a writer.

    "I know more about the business than you do, that's for damn sure." That's probably the last thing Aiden says to Vierzt. he's not exactly happy right now.

    Vierzt smirks more. Makes since to me. How can you be, or even want to be a writer, if no one actually sees what you write? Is you even write at all.

    Aiden decides not to continue the conversation by mentioning that he actually has been published back home, and that apparently not wanting to die equaled not wanting to be a writer. Instead, he stays behind the bar and keeps serving drinks.
