bugbear

Bella amasses a spreadsheet full of runes. She learns enough about programming to store them a bit more elegantly than that and get the program to make suggestions that do various results. Doesn't have a GUI wrapper, but it works for the part that is about choosing runes and sizes, if not laying them out - that still has to be done by hand.

Invisibility is going to be very popular with monsters who want to go out in the world.

As far as scrolls are concerned: Xeroxing them doesn't work. Carbon paper does, even on gray paper where the runes are barely visible for intellectual property reasons, and tracing a xeroxed copy also works fine; a simple spell takes about five minutes to make a stack of four. The spells are available in French and Spanish. There isn't a huge selection to start. But it's something.

They give Angela an after-school job tracing them according to demand so they have more time to discover additional runes and work out additional spells, and they put up fliers in the Avalon advertising a mail-order service.

Bella gets a car. It's a beat-up station wagon, but it works.

Bella has a small business, a vehicle, and a long-term career plan.

She sets about making arrangements to skip the eleventh grade, and Darren follows suit.

The two of them are adorably attached to each other. There is a lot of kissing. Savannah teases them a lot and Bella messes with her and Darren blushes.

By the time summer vacation starts, they have a stabilized price point, sufficient regular buyers, enough repertoire, and a nest egg of money that permit them to rent a small storefront and hire a teenage griffin to sell scrolls in the Avalon. They are on their way out (Savannah accompanying for kicks, Bella driving) to seal the deal and drop off a batch of inventory. Bright and early.

Darren exchanges a look with Bella that says, 'I have no idea what's going on I don't know why she is like this.'

But he also falls silent.
morethanimaginary: (Well that's definitely a thing)

[personal profile] morethanimaginary 2014-06-18 04:19 am (UTC)(link)
Savannah does not break the silence. She doesn't even grouse about the pair up front being silent.
castmyown: (Default)

[personal profile] castmyown 2014-06-18 04:21 am (UTC)(link)
"So," says Darren, after a while. "Where should we go first when we reach the Avalon? Food, I'm guessing?"
castmyown: (e. That's an interesting point)

[personal profile] castmyown 2014-06-18 04:27 am (UTC)(link)
Nod. "Hopefully he's not going to cackle and then go running off with his new found power of invisibility to spy in the girl's showers or something."
castmyown: (d. Did you come up with that yourself)

[personal profile] castmyown 2014-06-18 04:29 am (UTC)(link)
"That, too. Sorry, I grew up with Savannah, take a wild guess at what she wanted to use invisibility for."
morethanimaginary: (Not the type for mercy)

[personal profile] morethanimaginary 2014-06-18 04:29 am (UTC)(link)
Savannah flips Darren the bird.
morethanimaginary: (Fine)

[personal profile] morethanimaginary 2014-06-18 04:32 am (UTC)(link)
She rolls her eyes and doesn't reply. She gives an annoyed sigh, and then looks out the window, obviously not feeling talkative.
castmyown: (k. So much to do)

[personal profile] castmyown 2014-06-18 04:35 am (UTC)(link)
Darren looks at her, and tilts his head.

"Okay. Twin veto rules apply, what the hell is up? I changed the subject, are you mad at us for something and just feeling - weird and passive aggressive today?"
morethanimaginary: (On my to-do list)

[personal profile] morethanimaginary 2014-06-18 04:35 am (UTC)(link)
"Nothing is up, you keep bugging me, stop it."
castmyown: (o. Not the kind of thing I like)

[personal profile] castmyown 2014-06-18 04:39 am (UTC)(link)
"Okay, Savannah, seriously, I am not blind and stupid, something is wrong. Tell me what it is and I promise not to mope or get passive aggressive about you not telling me sooner."
morethanimaginary: (Not the type for mercy)

[personal profile] morethanimaginary 2014-06-18 04:40 am (UTC)(link)
"Auuugh," says Savannah. "Shush. Just - shush, stop talking, that is what's wrong, you keep talking and poking me and it's getting on my nerves!"
castmyown: (i. Unexpected)

[personal profile] castmyown 2014-06-18 04:41 am (UTC)(link)
"The fact that I am talking is getting on your nerves? That - what, that never happens, what topics are upsetting you so I can avoid them and stop upsetting you? You told me to go back to talking about magic, you think that's the most boring thing ever."
morethanimaginary: (Well that's definitely a thing)

[personal profile] morethanimaginary 2014-06-18 04:42 am (UTC)(link)
There is an - awkward pause, from Savannah.

"Because I don't want to talk right now," she says, a bit off guard.
morethanimaginary: (Kind of how it works)

[personal profile] morethanimaginary 2014-06-18 04:45 am (UTC)(link)


"Reasons," declares Savannah, throwing up her hands.
castmyown: (o. Not the kind of thing I like)

[personal profile] castmyown 2014-06-18 04:48 am (UTC)(link)
"Please stop being cagey, Savannah I'm your brother I won't disown you or something if it's terrible - is someone dead, is that what's going on?"
morethanimaginary: (On my to-do list)

[personal profile] morethanimaginary 2014-06-18 04:48 am (UTC)(link)
"I'm not fucking scared of you disowning me! I'm pissed off because you are bugging me for no reason and now you are interrogating me!"
morethanimaginary: (Not the type for mercy)

[personal profile] morethanimaginary 2014-06-18 04:51 am (UTC)(link)
"I'm allowed to be strange if I want to!"
castmyown: (l. Quiet time)

[personal profile] castmyown 2014-06-18 04:53 am (UTC)(link)
"Yes," says Darren, frustrated. "You are, but I'm allowed to be worried, which I am, because you are my twin and I have never in my life seen you act this way! Please. Please let me in, Savannah."
