    Annie looks at him for a moment and then shrugs. "Okay, but I gotta finish my picture." She grabs the crayon box and pulls out a few different colours. Then she stoops over her drawing and starts very carefully colouring it in.

Villains and other troublemakers haven't bothered us in a while, but if they do, it'll be good to have someone who can scare them off."

    Ruth holds the baby close until she's asleep, then places her in her spot, the ball beside her. She also lowers her voice, for the sake of the sleeping babies. "Oh, Reelshka! My power is not just for smiting evil, but to work for the advancement of good. From 'white magic' to the ability to help facilitate redemption... I am a spirit meant to guide nature and the cosmos, just one of many of my ilk." Then she turns to look at the door. "And, I am a 'mother' of sorts, taking care of a young spirit who's eager to learn about the world and meet its inhabitants. I know a thing or two about handling children." Both times, she actually makes the air-quotes sign with both hands.

    "Even in a time of peace, I'm always here to help, and ensure that peace lasts. For instance, there's a child here, Sasha. Have you met her? I think she and that ninja girl should meet."
    Karasu, she's referring to, of course.

    "We do seem to be following different ideas of heroism," Sophie observes. "I think of heroes as people who do what's right even if it's difficult. Not people who seek fame and adulation."

    [Ironoak Cabin]

    Reelshka's ears twitch.

    "If you say so. Any help, magical or otherwise, is welcome. Is this young spirit Asher? I do know Sasha, yes. Sophie said her father had caused her... condition. I suppose having a connection to shadow might help them connect. It is worth a try."

    Asher's smile is returned to him! "Yayyyy!" He scampers off, leaving her to colour in for a few moments, and returns with a paper, pencil and some crayons, drawing his mother's human form, as well as himself.

    His drawing? It looks really good.

    Ruth nods. "I didn't birth him, we angels are asexual. He came into being, like I did more than half a millennium ago, and I and another of my ilk are raising him like parents. As far as he is concerned, however, I am his mother."

    Ruth turns to the sleeping babies and smiles. "He's still a bit of a crybaby, but that's normal. He is still a baby, to us at least. As for Sasha and Karasu, I'm glad you agree. I shall go get her and take her to the shadow girl after this point. Sasha should be glad to hear that her father is no more. Now that both babies are asleep, perhaps I should get to doing that now."

    Melissa shrugs. "Let's just hope that someone in the future can convince that my ideals of heroism are wrong."

    Melissa, who has largely been avoiding eye-contact this whole time except for brief moments, feels like this conversation has somewhat stalled. Did it stall because it's over, she wonders, or did it stall because her views of what a hero is are just that abhorrent or out of the ordinary? "Anyway. Is there anything else you need to know about me before deciding?"

    She plays with her hair, twirling it, showing that she is somewhat anxious while awaiting the response.

    "Oh."

    Melissa stops playing with her hair.

    "Okay. Thanks." That threw her off her game pretty quickly. She had already decided? That quickly? "But...shouldn't you, y'know, like check to make sure I'm not a danger or whatever? What if I'm, like, some robot-bomb-thing who only thinks she's a person because some trash-can aliens wanted to have a bargaining chip against a doctor?"" she asks, recalling an episode from the first sci-fi series that comes to mind.

    Melissa's not worried about that particular example, but some of her powers could be seriously dangerous in the wrong situation, in her opinion. And she just decided? Just like that?

    "I don't turn away people who need help. That's not what we do here, as a rule," Sophie explains. "You might or might not be dangerous, but we used to redeem villains here, remember? Besides, considering every possible angle of danger around here lends itself well to acute paranoia."

    Oh. That's...pretty reasonable, actually.
    Melissa nods to show that she agrees.

    "So, what sort of paperwork I need to fill out?" she asks, assuming there'll be paperwork. It's probably a reasonable assumption.


    [Arriving]

    Holly the Half-Elf arrives at the GLoG campground. She just needs to head to the infirmary, ask some stuff, and then hopefully everything works out. She even knows exactly where the infirmary is; in fact, that's the building here she knows best, considering how long she spent recovering there.

    ...
    She hesitates before progressing, though.

    The last time she was here, spirits guarding the campground chased her and attacked her. Probably justified, of course, but she can't remember what caused them to chase her in the first place. Maybe it's because she was trying to break out of the infirmary, or looked nefarious, or somebody tipped them off and they waited until there were no other patients around, or something.
    And the only way she was able to get out of the campground safely was by holding a child hostage.

    "..."
    Holly seriously hopes that doesn't happen again.
    Threatening to kill a child, in front of its terrified family or not, is not something she enjoys doing.

    So, with a prayer that nothing like that happens during this trip to GLoG's infirmary, she heads towards that large cabin.

    I think when Holly arrives, she'll find a ghostly nurse asking what sort of help she needs.

    No kidnappable children are immediately in view, but perhaps there's one on a bed near the back of the cabin.

    "There's some forms, then we'll need to work out a schedule... Come with me." Sophie will lead Melissa inside, where there's some altogether mundane paperwork to fill. Though, for some reason, it seems to take only a few moments and the forms are remarkably easy to figure out.

    Holly will keep that in mind.

    "I'm with HALO, and we're researching some new diseases," she says, wondering exactly how helpful a ghost will be. "We need to either borrow some of your equipment, or use it to prepare some samples. Would that be alright with you?"

    There. Quick, short, simple, and hopefully hard to be misinterpreted.


    [Sophie's Office]

    "Okay."

    Melissa follows Sophie to fill out the paperwork.
    It's...remarkably simple.

    The ghost informs her that for research, Holly ought to go over to the Medical Lab, and ask a doctor.
    She can't give out medical supplies, being an insubstantial ghost and a nurse at that. They're just a bit too solid and distant.
    But she's sure it'll be fine.

    [Lab]

    "Come in!"
    The front room of the lab contains at least one (1) doctor, bent over a table where complex assemblies of lights and lenses shine down on a row of agar dishes. You can tell she's a doctor because of the lab coat, and you can tell which doctor by the sunglasses.

    The Lake

    There's a small whooshing sound that those near the lake may notice, and whirlpool appears, except is doesn't seem to be sucking anything up. Instead, it pushes away water and debris alike. The whirlpool disappears after only a minute or so, and a head pops up where it used to be. The person the head belongs to is treading water, looking back and forth, apparently confused.

    Holly, of course, thanks the ghost.
    Ghosts are really helpful, right?

    When told to come in, she does. She looks around the room at the equipment, admiring it. And the doctor's lab coat. Pretty neat. She ought to get a lab coat some time. And sunglasses. They look useful.

    "Hi. I'm Holly, from HALO." She then gives a quick version of the events. "We're studying some mutagenic infection but don't have the necessary equipment. Our samples keep on mutating too quickly." Of course, the problem isn't the mutagenic compound; it's Holly's own powers that are causing the problem.

    Then, she gets to the important part of it: "Last time I was here, GLoG had something that could stasis-lock samples, so I was wondering if we could borrow it? Or at least use it to prepare the samples."

    Well, there are helpful ghosts and there are unhelpful ghosts.

    They're very useful. Keep the light from being too bright, keep people from looking you in the eyes. Great accessory. Never be anywhere without them.
    Anchor puts a label near one of the plates and stands up to greet Holly.
    "Oh, of course. I'll be happy to help."

    "We haven't had to use that in a while. You'll want to bring the samples to use it here, if that's an option."
    The doctor points down the hall; the stasis machine will be kept in the back somewhere, she's pretty sure.

    "I knew this day would come. I just didn't expect it so soon. I should have listened to your mother and figured out what to say before now."
    Pathfinder admits. He falls silent for a few moments as he finishes tightening the screws before shimmying out from under the bed. He'll groan as he sits up, pops his back, and then settles on the bed while patting the seat next to him. "Hop on up here and I'll tell you. Do you know how different people have different spirits and gods?" He asks. "And not everyone can see gods or spirits though it is for different reasons. Gods are distant, very far away, but spirits tend to like to hide. If you want to see them, usually you need a blessing from one."

Everything from Carbon-Based to Silicon to Ferrous. My ship has all sorts of samples and I'm certain a few of the aquatic species would thrive wonderfully in the pond here without upsetting the balance." She reasons.

    Ruth listens and nods, frowning as well. "From that point of view, you're correct, it's unwise." She admits. "I should confess that my rank of angel usually doesn't directly..." She glances at the sleeping babies and decides to shorten her statement. "In short, I seem to misunderstand people - or 'moments' - here. I have been called literal-minded and such."

    "Still, I'd like to meet Sasha myself, with Karasu in tow. Have you met her? What should I expect?" She asks, watching the children sleep.

    "Sasha is... very socially-stunted," Reelshka explains. "She doesn't know how to deal with other people. And she has an aura of palpable dread and discomfort that makes it difficult to be near her. You can Karasu should find it easier, at least."

    "Yeah! Mom said goblins have the One Below, and the Earth Queen, and um... something in gears and some others, but they don't come up and talk to people."

    "Yes," she says. "I, uh, I already have the samples here." But she's not carrying anything...? And no large enough pockets on her clothes to safely carry dangerous samples. Not on her skirt, not her shirt, and not on her glove that for some reason she only wears on her right hand/arm.

    Holly starts to explain. "The pure sample is too dangerous to analyze at the moment, but luckily I had accidentally got some on my hand when I first discovered it, and infected flesh is slightly safer to analyze." It actually wasn't lucky.

    She heads towards the back hall. "May I...?"

    Pathfinder nods. "And all the spirits you see around here are minor spirits instead of Great Spirits like Dawn Wolf and Stonethrower. They're spirits of old trees and animals, the weather and sometimes of people. They help keep the world stable and shepherd others through to their rest. The reason you can see them though isn't because I'm a Shaman. It is because your grandparents are Dawn Wolf and Stonethrower. You have the blood of Great Spirits within you, and it means you are destined for many great things. What those things are, are up to you."

    Tuskfang's eyes go wide as saucers during Pathfinder's explanation. The little boy is having some trouble processing all this.

    "Whaa? But I thought grandpa and grandma were Wolfen, not spirits. You're a Wolfen and not spirit, too." He pokes Pathfinder's leg with his finger as is to reassure himself of his father's corporeality. "You've told me stories about how the Great Spirits made Wolfen."

    There's a faint sniff from Lucy. "Everything was fine u-u-until Riverside happened. Was never a problem before. A-and neither was us wanting to, uh, wanting to go off and do our own things before Sylvess met Spako." She sighs and fidgets awkwardly. "Not- not that I blame him. No, I-I'm happy for him! Very happy. He- he deserved to meet someone nice. It's just hard to accept how much the changes affect all of us."

    "But I need it now." Annie says, uncompromising. She then reaches over to try to take the crayon.

    Anchor's face lights up in excitement.
    "Um, I mean, the Nexus is already pretty alive. Especially here at GLoG. Not even really damaged or anything."
    Well, some places are actually, themselves, alive. But that's beside the point, right?
    And anything Mintaka wants to add to the pond is automatically extra-suspect.
    "We'd love to share samples, though. And I bet the island could do with some new plants."

    "Of course."
    The doctor heads down the hall towards a room of diagnostic machinery.
    Better show Holly how to use it, especially if one of her hands is wounded.
    "You just turn these on, and put the material here - I mean, you're not planning to freeze your whole hand, are you?"

    "Change is difficult to adapt to." Sophie's voice remains reassuring. "We have an idea of how things are or how they want to be, and when something comes along and questions it, we become uncomfortable or scared. There's nothing wrong with that. You couldn't expect Sylvess to stay single forever and now that he's found someone, you need to adapt. I'd like all of you to think and talk about it before our next meeting."

    Holly, of course, laughs. "I'm sure she'll have a very funny look on her face if I go back with my hand in a jar." 'Hello, I heard you wanted a hand'.

    "No." Serious time. "I was just planning on getting a few skin and blood samples from each hand and only using those." Why does she need samples from her uninfected hand? "The samples from my left hand are to be a control, because I'm only half-human." As you can tell from her ears, the other half is probably elf. Because only elves have pointy ears.

    She pays attention to how it gets used.
    Holly suddenly has a scalpel in her left hand that wasn't...anywhere before now. "I brought a scalpel," she claims, "but I forgot to bring syringes or things like that." Syringes are also harder to make on the spot. "Do you have any I could use, for the blood samples? While I cut out the flesh samples."

    Holly is not against cutting a piece of skin out of her hands. Of course, she'll start with the left hand before taking off the right hand's glove, because she doesn't want to transfer the mutagen anywhere.
