Jigano nodded silent agreement, for what else could he add? Adjectives piled on adjectives and yet none of them did the sea justice. He now knew why she spoke of it with such rapt energy, and hsving seen it for himself he had no better words for that endless expanse of mystery and beauty.

Weapons were more down to earth, easier to grasp in hands and minds, and Jigano grinned at the question returned to him. "Rapier for me, swift and precise, sometimes paired with a dagger for close-work. I can aim a crossbow well enough, though I lack your precision with your hunting bow. Ronin has given me a lesson or two in fisticuffs, and Deimos has tried to teach me short sword, though I fear I'm far from his best student in that regard." To each their own, as the saying went, but having more tools at hand could only help if a catastrophe loomed that required a different approach than just poking something to death,

He grinned at his friend's interest, pleased to have his magic met with curiosity and excitement. "That it is, though it's been a bit inconsistent lately," he admitted, unable to reproduce his trick with the quill or make the metal armaments he'd watched Deimos craft so elegantly in the past. At least he had found himself able to do this much, the memories of herbs and recipes in Evie's books combining with his healing magic into a concoction that might not cure as well as a unicorn's horn, but should provide more comfort than mere leaves alone could do. "It's just a bruise balm with a dash of Healing magic thrown in to speed the recovery," he admitted with a rueful smile. "I don't have a fancy name for it... unless you can help me think of one?"

there's always a glimmer in those
Maybe one day she’d return to the sea, to the undulating waves, to the potency reigning supreme over its vastness – how it consumed, how it cherished, how it swallowed, devoured, and promised. As a child, she’d basked in its sandy shoal, like another home, playing in its current and pretending to be a monster – breathing in the salty air, whispering into the wind, cast amongst its glass and veneer. Drawn and lured, like a siren, like a moth, like a flame.

She tilted her head, listening while she acquired snacks too, bar food tucked along the back, knowing every inch of the foundation she’d helped create. The girl was unfamiliar with rapiers, not a common weapon where she’d been from. Crossbows sounded delightful, but she did so love pulling the arc, the string, the taut, rigid strands to further precision and depth on her own bow. “Training is training. The more the better,” and she smiled, the same impish grin, constantly willing to add to her repertoire of techniques, skills, and munitions.

She eventually sat again, bringing over the snacks, placing them along the desk before returning to her seat. Despite her mother’s scholarly, healing occupation, Melita had never been beguiled into the marks of soothing or mending – more apt to be applying the damage, the lacerations, requiring a salve or paste. Her eyes peered over it again, bruise balm, wishing somehow, as one always did in later years, she’d paid more attention to her mother’s carefully cultivated herbs and actions. “How lovely.” A smaller smile then, while she thought. Considering she’d named Fangorn, perhaps she wasn’t the best choice for the job. “What about Groen?” Green.

He had yet to set foot in the salten waters, though he knew how to swim in lakes and rivers. There was something about the waves and the overwhelming endlessness of it disappearing into the horizon that argued for caution. Respect as well as awe underlay his growing fascination with it, but the boundless curiosity that was his greatest strength and weakness was drawing him back, and eventually he knew he'd give in to it.

Snacks were a welcome addition to the conversation, and he grinned as she began to gather their fodder. "I should practice more with swords as well as magic," he mused, flexing his fingers consideringly. "I'd prefer to use my power for things other than combat, but this world is not always so kind in its allowances." As Remi and Ronin had learned to their despair. "I need to find ways to incorporate them together..."

But for the moment there were snacks and he nodded his thanks as he reached for some nuts, shelling them fastidiously into another bowl. "Groen?" he repeated, tasting it on his tongue. A smile spread across his face, delighted with her cleverness. "Groen for the green of its hue and groen for the groans that the bruises bring before it's applied. Groen for grown, as well, to pay homage to the herbs and green, living things that went into its making. It's perfect!"
