Morrigan - Magic Says "Sorry About the Mess"

After a bit of a ramble(and almost tripping over a cat that wanted to walk where you were walking), you're back at the Morrigan Cave! At least, it needs to be a Morrigan Cave. Can you get credit for an architecture class by making a Morrigan cave? That would be awesome.

Time: 11:30PM

Morrigan walks home thinking of her strange new friends and the prospect of a whole new world full of magic....until she trips on a dark brown tabby. Hoping the cat would be fine, her mind went on a series of tangents that included the implications of tiger immune systems on her labwork, how gravity might be manipulated to allow one to leap and land on your feet like a cat, and whether she should get a kitten. Jotting notes on her thoughts in her trusty notebook, she nearly walked past her apartment.

A bit too hyped from the strange conversation and the coffee, she sat at her laptop pulling up every article she could find on the university's online library about gravity. Topics from astronomy to theoretical physics, popped up. The one that really caught her eye was on tides.

She devoured the article, branching out with other articles, texts, and websites, until she had a decently thorough understanding. Then, she filled up the tub, swearing she was going to get the hang of this.

They've got some interesting ideas on this internet place. You get a pretty good flow of articles, making sure to note the ones that might apply more to something you could do, rather than planetary scale gravitics.
The tub has water, and demands to have a Morrigan in it. It's rather needy, but at least it enjoys its job.
OOC15(7+8) on research, you'll get additional goodies to choose from when you level up.

Morrigan sees if she can subtly alter gravity, just a bit, to cause...a tide of sorts in the tub of water. Turns out the "just a bit" part is problematic. After mopping up, she gives it another go, muttering out loud, Okay, this time, the same force should result in less spillage, since the water level is lower. And theoretically, that should have been the case. With only one dry towel left, she decided to finally just take the bath. After a soak, she went to bed, dreaming of tigers working in a chem lab, wearing magic boots that listen to the earth.

Strange dreams, strange dreams. The line dancing magic aliens were a good touch. Still, the day has arrived, and demands you say hi, or else.

Time: 9:00AM Sunday(Day 2). Paper should be here by now.

Morrigan floats toward consciousness already grumbling about circadian rhythms and beauty sleep, but it is, alas, no use. At least the automatic function on the coffee pot is working today. The aroma of fresh-ground alertness fills the apartment. Reluctantly sitting up and donning her fuzzy slippers, she disentangles herself from the sheets and heads to the kitchen, bumping into the doorframe as she goes. She grabs her favorite over-sized mug and fills it with half of the eight-cup pot. She sets it to cool a smidge while she ducks her head out for the paper.

Nothing magical attempts to eat you when you grab the paper. That's a good thing.

Spotting the stove, Morrigan cocks her head to the side for a second before frowning and sitting down at the table. Better to caffeinate before handling potentially fire-starting equipment. She sips at the coffee while reading the paper. Headlines of the first section first, only bothering with the articles if they catch her attention, then on to thoroughly read the science and tech section, and then the funnies. Only then does she bother with the rest of the paper, mostly just headlines, and just for the sake of curiosity, she looks to see if there are any free-kittens-to-good-homes ads.

The paper seems to have come with some extra sections today. Odd ghostly blue text overlaying the normal paper. Subway Strike Continues, Gremlins Displeased and New Potion Law Approaching, What does it mean for you? pop out at you from the front page.

Gremlins?! Morrigan mouths the thought gawking at the words. Those odd articles she devoured, completely forgetting her coffee as it cooled. Any information about this new magical world she could get her hands on.

NewsThe owners of the New Haven subway system and the union representing their drivers have yet to come to an agreement, as they now enter the second week of the strike. Currently, the subways have hired replacements, mostly Norse trolls, though they insist this is a temporary measure until the current issues can be solved.

There is a long discussion about the inclusion of several popular lines of potions in the restricted materials list, and how to make sure you can meet your needs after those products are gone. They stop short of telling you how to get a prescription for them anyway, even though the intent is clearly there. Probably written by some junkie at the local paper.


Business and TechArguments continue as to the ethical nature of the recently unveiled Synthetic Frame, created by a team of Transient technomancers working out of New Haven and Santa Barbera. While the technology does allow for the continued existence of those with severe health problems or terminal illnesses, doctors are intent on labeling the technology as a form of necromancy, a move that the Transients vehemently oppose(necromancy, even if the subject is willing, requires heavy taxes and permits to be performed legally). The head of the design team was not available for comment.

Morrigan reads some of the more unbelievable articles twice, trying to get a feel for the underlying assumptions of the magical world. The writing seemed so like the ...mundane?...paper. Just substitute 'potion' for 'drug' and 'technomancer' for 'researcher' and voila, magic newspaper. That was good. This new world is not so different from the old one. People are inherently the same, just the details are a bit different.

Finally putting the paper down, she takes a sip of coffee only to find that it's completely cold. She frowns and pops it in the microwave, then looks in the fridge for breakfast. The leftover pasta looks inviting, but she decides to be good and makes an omelette with lots of veggies. She sets up her laptop as she eats and starts scanning the news sites to see if those 'technomancers' are newsbloggers as well. A nice website full of research and maybe a few details on potions and technomancer-made bodies. Maybe it could help her own research...heck, maybe she could join them...new perspective is always a good idea in research and ....

Her head going a mile a minute, she jumps on the net.

 


She spends an hour or two...okay, an hour or two longer than she thought...surfing the net for magic. Then, throwing on some clothes, she heads to the nearest animal shelter to see if they have any kittens.

Hmm, still nothing on the internet. Though, the idea of the magic newspaper on the normal one gets you to thinking... perhaps they have some special magical internet? If so, you'd need a special router or something to hit it. You don't suppose they have a magic tech store around, do they?

Time: 11:15. The animal shelter exists in front of your face. Rather run down, though it's not like they get much funding. You note the irony that there's a hunting supply store across the road from it.

Mind still whirling around the possibilities of this new magical world, Morrigan resolves to check a phone book to see if there's a magical overlay there too. Or maybe magical billboards. She hadn't thought to look. Maybe the signs around town had little extras. Lost in these thoughts, Morrigan actually had to remind herself where she was and why she was there.

Rolling her eyes, she gave herself a shake and entered the somewhat...dingy shelter. It takes a moment for her eyes to adjust to the dim building, but in the meantime, she walks up to the desk in the reception area.
