I love how even Tareth's elipsis uses her sort of deaf-wobbled font style.

Can we take a moment to appreciate that Xira was crouching through that entire mindscape-venture?
Boy's got some strong legs. 8|

Trader lady is really pretty. ^^; Also, Xira you are actually quite a good liar. He looked directly at Tareth after doing something super sneaky. I'm getting the impression that he has done these kind of things often.

No, that is the freaky part. He did not lie at all. He "made sure that she won't be scared of Jonan." And that he has done. Means and ways were not discussed. 8|
On a mostly unrelated note: Won't the lady be able to connect "mouth sealed shut" spell to "that happened to me[or someone I know] too" to "Jonan" to "this guy right here" to "get the heck out!!!"??? Ah, we will have to wait to find out.
Also, the room looks super comfy. So Shazzbaa, if you are still regretting all the tapestry and markings - find consolation in the fact that it looks great and homely (and you can only blame the English language for making "homely" a bad word instead of a compliment like any sane language would. Honestly what is bad if something reminds you of a home???)

Well, specifically regarding the last paragraph-- the word you're looking for in English is actually "homey," (which is not a GREAT word either, aesthetically). Homely is the insulting one, but "homey" refers to something that is comfortable or has the qualities of a home. :)
(ENGLISH IS OCCASIONALLY REALLY STUPID. I love it dearly, but it definitely has issues. It's like a younger sibling in that way.)

Actually, in British English, "homely" is a good thing, it means "cozy and comfortable."

Aye, and I've heard it used to refer to people the same way as "comely". As in, gently pretty. Sort of girl-next-door type of thing.

HUH. You learn something new every day...
Man, I really think Shaw put it best--- Britain and America really are two nations separated by a common language. 8T

Different regions of England have the same problem, mate. I can't understand people with Yorkshire dialects for the life of me, and I'm a Geordie.

Well, if Xira made sure that did a good job of locking up all of her memories of Jonan, then it shouldn't be too big of a problem. Of course, she might get suspicious when she can't remember how it happened to her. If she remembers that it happened to her.

Clearly if his mouth doesn't open, they should try the other end!
Not the most dignified procedure, but at least the colon is a very efficient absorber of water.

substitute broth for water and you might get a little nourishment in there too!

I know all of us readers were coming up with all sorts of crazy ideas, but this one stands out from the crowd D:
I think Jonan would probably get pretty close to the "I'd rather die!" position on this one. Not that he wes exceptionally thrilled by the thought of nasogastric intubation either... (according to an older vote incentive)

Today I learned that Tareth is really good at explaining complicated things like they're actually pretty simple.

Except for when she isn't http://runewriters.com/index.php?c=135
But now that she had time to prepare, she nailed it.

I know this is only relevant to Runewriters by the most tenuous of threads, but I wanted to mention the "sign language translator" present at Nelson Mandela's funeral, who (the translator, that is) was basically just waving his hands around. Mostly I'm just impressed he didn't get caught.

It could be that South African Sign Language just looks like that. As I understand it, signing is incredibly varied between communities.

Hey, I looked around, but didn't see it in the shop: do you sell a book of runewriters? And if so, till where does volume one go, and when will volume two be ready? If not, when will volume one be ready?
