The business of the Immortals was a mystery to Padraig, no matter what he could read in books and hear from others. He suspected that no mortal truly knew their designs and motives. Maybe, he thought, they didn't genuine know each other's. In that way, they were probably no different than anyone else. It was fascinating though, all this talk about Raskalarn and Karem.

It was equally an unknown, whether or not a little alchemy, chemistry or physics could be applied, and ultimately allow Cally to communicate more freely with the living. It would be an interesting challenge to explore at any rate. And while the problem wouldn't be solved this trial or the next, or maybe this arc or next one, it was something he'd keep in mind. With Faith by his side, after all, there never appeared to be any shortage of spirits around.

"It was a pleasure," he said, when Kura addressed him, and told them both where she was staying. "I'm sure we'll cross paths again, sooner or later." Neither he nor Faith were in any hurry to leave the city behind him. And it appeared that Kura wasn't either.

Of course he couldn't hear the barrage of questions that Cally asked Faith. But he knew his love well enough to recognize the signs of fatigue. When they'd first returned from the eastern settlement, he'd assumed that her headaches were strictly a result of the blow to the head she'd received after her fall from a horse. But he'd come to also realize that there was a certain strain she experienced, resulting from the use of the powers she'd gained. He smiled and touched her hand beneath the table.

"I think maybe it's time we returned to our room?" he suggested. Then smiling at Kura again when he rose, he added, "Again, it was nice to meet you. And also you, Callie," he said. It was time, he thought, so having made their excuses and paid for their meal, they'd take their leave.

Comment: No issues with Story, Collaboration or structure. This is the first thread of yours that I have read, and I have to say I am very curious about your character. At first I saw her as confident and strong from her description, but like with nearly every character, she has this softer and more damaged side. I think you did a great job of playing with both the other two PCs as well as the spirits. Honestly I think that I would have found that a difficult task, but you did it well. I really enjoyed reading this and I hope to get to read more from and about Kura as I grade.

Comment: No issues with Story, Collaboration or structure. Good job with this thread, in some ways it could have been seen as a very spiritual and religious concept. However, you did a great job of turning it into something scientific and easier to explain for Padraig. I think the way that you find a scientific approach to these different threads is great and I look forward to seeing more of that. I also love Pad's protective side for Faith, the relationship between your two characters is just getting better and I love the contrast in some aspects of their personalities. Keep up the good work and I look forward to more of you as always!

If there are any queries or suggestions, any issues at all, please do send me a PM and I would be happy to discuss it with you.
