    This is a case where the wheel is neither particularly squeaky or not squeaky, was willing to take some grease, but does not want to spin toward where the greaser wants to spin it.

      Perhaps this is more a case of a spoonful of sugar to make the medicine go down? I’m sure there’s a cliche that fits this better, I just can’t think of it.

        No. no. The metaphor was apt enough, the nuance I point out notwithstanding. I’m enjoying this.

          Thank you. I’m very glad you’re enjoying it!

    Hehehe, I don’t think it was toooo obvious, just that with almost everyone wanting her to fail and get killed, why else would you need to wine up someone, if not to get them to want to go against the public opinion (and most likely become a target too).

      True enough. I was worried I’d already told the story without intending it. Turns out you just have a good head on your shoulders. xD

    Loved it! You pulled off telling the tale with just the hands, as you wished. Now we need the Mission Impossible music!

      Not really sure if it qualifies for “M.I.”. As far as these two ‘gentlemen’ know, it might, but the kinslayer has proven herself quite capable of handling herself and we happen to know she is in good hands.

        Mmmm… I’m not sure the god of the dead is the best choice for a guardian of the living, but he does seem positively disposed toward her.

          Pretty sure that’s sorta like being given an exp boost for leveling in Badass…. so long as she doesn’t take it for granted, the Raven could be a little less… strict on his soul gathering duties. or something to that extent.
          Plus, it gives her Badass Boasting material… potentially.

      Thanks, CaptEndo! “Sebriin, this is your mission should you choose to accept it.”

        I’m not really sure she was given much of a choice.

        The only choice I saw was “take this or die NOW!”. And that was after some convincing by a loving father.

          True enough.

    Don’t kill yourself over your personal projects. We will wait faithfully :-)

    If you ever get a chance to consider a move to Europe, give it some thought. Healthcare is generally pretty amazing. Staying off work for a week or two is basically no issue at all, and you don’t need to pay the physician, either.

      Thank you for your loyalty and patience.

      I wish I could just move there. Unless I become a citizen, I’d have to carry my own insurance as a resident alien. A tourist visa does have coverage from the state they’re visiting, but if I’m to work and live there I’d have to have my own. The route to becoming a citizen in France is a bit difficult for an American unless I can marry in. I assume it’s not much different from country to country. I had a fiancee there so I did my research.

    Yeah… fuck being sick. The last time I let that happen, I was puking, had a fever of 103 degrees Fahrenheit, and should have known it would be a bad day with the headache I woke up with. Note to self. Drink. More. Citrus. Best of luck to you. Get well soon.

      Thank you! I’m pleased to say that I’ve recovered nicely.
