Subject: Arrived Safely

Fen,

If you’re reading this, it means I got to RhyDin safely, I got my e-mail account set up correctly here, and the gremlin at the Welcoming Center wasn’t lying when he said I could send a message across worlds.

So: Hi! The Smuggler brought me over safely on the 26th (Boxing Day for you, right?), and it was surprisingly easy. Interesting he puts Portalcraft to use sending people to another world and not robbing banks, but I did have to sell most of my shit (including the Vanagon) to get here, so what do I know? Yeah, I puked a couple of times coming out, but better that than missing an arm or a leg or my head. ‘Sides, not the first time that’s happened. Or that I can even count.

Probably should have led with something better, but: you should come over too. I know, I know, you’ve got a lot of important shit to do with the De Vries, but this’s nice. A bit cold for me, but probably not for you. Lots of funky looking people. And good pot. Yeah, yeah, I know. That’s more my thing.

But seriously. The way you talk about it, I don’t think it’s going to get better. I’ve only been here a couple of days, don’t even have an apartment just a room at an Inn, don’t even have a job, but you know what I do have? Freedom. No one gives a shit what I do. No one watching like a hawk. I can already tell that I can do almost anything I want, and no one from the Names can stop me. Just...think about it.

Ourse says hi.

Re: Arrived Safely

Cal,

You have no idea how much I was looking forward to this email. To say I was worried would be a huge understatement but you made it! You're out. You really, really made it. I'm so happy that you're okay. Minus the fact that you had to get rid of the Vanagon. I know how much you loved it.

The rumors have already started popping up in the network about you fleeing. Who knew a single term such as Heretic could encourage all the wealthy Names to foam at the mouth. I think they're more upset that you were able to get out than of you actually leaving. Like you were some kind of trophy hunt that they wanted to make an example of. Disgusting.

My father asked if I had spoken with you before you had decided to become a Heretic. I am not sure if he believed me or not, but I insisted that you refused to involve me in it because you knew of my station here. I'm afraid he might bring in a Mentalcrafter to see if I was fibbing or not. I have my ways around that, though, so don't worry too much. I'm basically a princess, right? I can do no wrong in their eyes.

Unless ... Unless I was to come there. Then I would be the scourge of their existence. The bane of the De Vries family name. Whatever that means.

Things have been worse, though. I'm not entirely certain but I feel it, Cal. I feel it in my bones, just beneath my skin. Something isn't right. I think it had to do with that time the Montgomery's came here to speak with my father. I could of sworn I heard them mention the Seventh Name.

I'm not sure how safe this email will be in the coming days. I know everyone is aware of our friendship and have been since we were younger so I'm almost positive that father will get someone to hack into this account. I'll get Filip to keep this email secure, though.

You're always just a carefree tower of trouble, aren't you? Don't worry; I'll not be judging you anytime soon. No one else would want to hear me venting about my family, if only because they would be scared of the consequences.

But -- freedom. Freedom does sound nice.

Let me think about it, okay? It's a hard decision. Harder than anything I can imagine.

But I do miss Ourse.

XX,
Fen

Subject: Halloween Party Friday

Hi Fen,

This is Cal from the Intro to Magical Components discussion. How’s it going? Don’t worry, not asking to copy your lab report or anything. Wanted to see if you’re interested in a party Friday, Halloween. I’ve got some friends at the co-op who rent a house on Alder -- they don’t know the Craft, but they got a couple kegs and a smoke out room if that’s your thing. I’ll be going as Gandalf the Grey, but I think they’re cool if you don’t go in costume. I know I’m asking a bit last-minute, so no worries if you can’t make it. It’s at 200 Alder Avenue or if you want there’s a couple of us pregaming in Montgomery Hall starting around 8 or so.

hmu if you’re interested.

Cal
