    "Eh, wha? An honor? Oh my, yes." The ancient Artificer seemed a little confused for a moment, there. Rin did say he was old and kinda out-there. Then again, what Wizards weren't?'

    "Lady Shiranui? Oh, fuff! The old fox is a treacherous whore. She wants something. That's just how her kind are. Oh my, yes, they always want something from us. It's how they are." I guess he didn't have a very high opinion of women? "Student of the mysteries? What, you're a Wizard? Ah, that takes me back. How many centuries has it been, now, since I taught, back at Brookhaven. Longer, still, since I was a student there. And then there was the old fox. Treacherous she-devil. You're her errand-boy now, but you won't be forever, youngster. She'll get bored of you and cast you aside. Or you'll say 'the wrong thing' because they always hate to hear the truth, and she'll cast you aside! And then she'll cast you aside!" He seemed rather agitated, until he cooled down. "Er, uh, what was I saying?" He seemed to zone out for a few more moments before finding his footing again as the golem stomped over to show him the book. "Good news, everyone, I accept her gift. You may leave." He then paused for a moment. "Er, uh, wait. You didn't uh, read the thing, did you? And, good heavens, certainly not aloud? Because that would just be disastrous. Oh my, yes. "

    "Wait, um" the words tangled in his throat. "We never opened the book, master Armitage, but if I might ask... did you perhaps know of a student by the name Viktor?...or, uh" Mathias squinted his eyes a little, trying to discern Armitage's age to discern is station back at the academy relative to the conjuror. Sight did him little then, with Viktor, and it proved no more useful here.

    Enhanced age and vitality was a typical persuit for master arcanists with their facilities, knowledge and power now on a surplus, and damn me for it because thats about all I know.

    "Or instructor" he said weakly, giving up.

    Almost forgetting that they were already dismissed, he added a little something just to catch the archmage's interest, but leaving out enough so that it might be inquired. "Its gone, by the way. Brookshaven was swallowed whole"

    "Weiss?! Weiss." Armitage repeated the name as though it were the most venomous slur imaginable, which seemed like the sort of thing most people who knew Viktor might do. Viktor was kind of a douchebag.

    "I know the bastard. Young asshole know-it-all. 'Oh, oh, look at me! I'm Viktor Weiss! I'm going to be just like Armitage and go study under Lord Ilafive! Oooh, I'm such a young hotshot! Go home, old man Armi, leave magic to the 229 year olds!'" Armitage's little tantrum and mock-rant was accompanied by all manner of old-man flailing and squirming.

    Ilafive... Mathias recognized that name from his studies. Lord Aldos Ilafive, better known by the common form of his surname; 'Starfury.' A surviving member of the royalty of old Anasteria* and, by general acclaim, one of the greatest Conjurers in the history of Asul. Last Mathias had heard he'd gone Eccentric generations ago. Then again, given how old Armitage and, apparently, Weiss were, it was certainly possible, I guess? Or maybe they were brilliant enough that even an Eccentric would tolerate them.

    "Er, uh, where was I?" Oh, he lost it again. "You were talking about Viktor." Makoto offered, helpfully. "Eh, wha? Oh, yes! Weiss?! Weiss! What about the young upstart? What's he gotten on to now? Does the old fox want me to clean up one of his messes, because I wont! Oh, sweet zombie Aoskar, is the filthy whore seeing him now? What, got bored with the grumpy old man and decides to go for the younger model? Robbing the cradle, is what she is!" More flailing. And spitting. Old man spittle.
    I guess Viktor was probably one of those subjects they maybe shouldn't have brought up?

    *Anasteria was one of the High Elven kingdoms Therion destroyed during the Wars of the Dragon, and now part of his domain, making up the region of Therion known as Carrion Lake. As Anasteria was a magocracy and one of the most magically advanced places on the surface of Asul, Mathias would know at least a bit of it's history, just as a result of his education.

    "Perhaps this is a bit of a longshot, but I had stumbled upon Viktor Weiss's works master Armitage. Or the by-products of his experiments, I can't tell for certain. The terrible things that took Brookshaven, it felt...similair. Of the same veins, same. . . sensations. I belief a power is stirring and I know not what, where or when. I think Viktor is involved"

    "Rin didn't inform me to ask anything of you, but I'm here on my own volition as well. I'm stupid and young, and in need of wisdom" he spole with conviction. He decided that cutting corners weren't wholly efficient, if he could be dismissed anymoment, better to have taken a shot. "Your wisdom"

    Armitage, still in mild tantrum mode, seemed dismissive. "Weiss? Do that?! Oh, fuff! Please! He's a pompous, dumb, arrogant, young upstart, but he's not that dumb! Or that good. He has neither the means nor the will to rend the Veil, at least not on that scale..." He seemed to trail off again, in his own thoughts, muttering to himself. "Ilafive, perhaps... although he's worse than Eccentric, now, crazy old bastard... Aryyna, certainly, oh my, yes... with Underdark in disarray, evidenced by Chitine on surface, though..."

    "Hello." Makoto gave a friendly little wave, apparently snapping him out of it. "Eh, wha? Oh, you're still here. No, it wasn't Viktor. What? Oh, no. Gods, no! I don't take apprentices! Shoo! Shoo! Away with you!"

    As the group, still escorted by golems, started off. "Oh, eh, uh, wait! Tell the old fox I accept her gift, but promise nothing.

    "I meant no such thing. I just, desperately want to fix things. Someone has to do something. But..."

    "I'll trouble you no longer, then. And we'll relay your message to Lady Shiranui" Mathias memorized the names uttered by the archmage. They ring bells, but it was too blurred to make anything out of the information. Perhaps Rin will know more. Or the libraries. Probably not much on the latter, though, unless it was, say Basarab. Let's not, though.

    She's Like the Sunrise

    The trip back to Kusanagi-to was a fairly literal non-event given that it was accomplished via teleportation scroll.

    ***

    Rin Shiranui met with the part in much the same manner as she had in their handful of prior encounters - in the palace's harems, in a room heavily scented with incense and lazily covered in luxurious cushions, pillows, and so on. And, of course, she also greated them with tight, too friendly, hugs - given the height difference between Rin and Ulow, the Chitine very nearly found her head lodged in Rin's ample Rinness, but one imagines probably found little cause for complaint, there, asphyxiation danger aside - and with kisses that were also much too friendly. Makoto, at the very least, certainly seemed to enjoy both.

    "You're back! Again!" Rin laughed, taking a seat and pulling Ulow down next to her. "I was worried sick about you lot! I was so worried about all of you! I'm so glad you're all okay!" She hugged Ulow tightly, before noticing that Ulow was still wearing the necklace she gave her. "Oh, you've kept it safe!" Rin laughed, positively beaming. "It kept you safe too, I bet. Yes, I'm sure of it. I told you it was special. Just like you." She gave Ulow an almost non-sexual kiss on the forehead. One got the idea that, with Rin, that was probably about the bst she could do when it came to trying to do something without sexual undertones.
    ...Not that they were really undertones when it came to Rin.

    "I'm sorry I couldn't meet with you all before. I was very busy with my new girlfriend." She stopped, catching herself. "Oh, oh! I got a girlfriend I forgot to tell you all! She's great! She's from up north, right? Huuuuge tits, like, almost kinda as big as mine!" The descrption of the nameless girl from Northern Izumo's chest was accmpanied by plenty of illustrative hand gestures from Rin, her own bouncing, jiggling, twin peaks being used for a point of comparison. "And, like, thighs? Gods, you won't believe her thighs. We really should do an orgy sometime. The five of us. Oh, and she's a really badass martial artist. She's really kind of the best. She acts like a cunt sometimes, but she's totally just pretending. She's really fun. And wild in bed. I guess my thunder thihs is kind of like you, eh nerdy boy?" She laughed and crawled over towards Mathias, resting her head on his lap and smiling up at him. "Hey, handsome. Missed me?"
    SUrely the fact she had angled herself at just such an angle as to give Mathias a perfect chance to look down her cleavage was just a strange coincidence. Ditto the fact that Uow got the chance to do the same but with the bottom of her dress.

    "Anyway. Tell me all about it! I'm so excited, I could just burst! What'd old grumpy-golems say? Did he say anything? Oh, gods, tell me he didn't make you kids talk to fuckin' golems?"

    Rin then giggled. "No, those aren't things. I mean, I've tried, but trust me, they're hard, but that's about it."

    Oh, Rin.

    "He's convinced you want something from him" said Blythe, trying to look away, but Rin seemed to be everywhere at once. "I...we talked very briefly Lady Rin, and I had a chance to learn about Brookshaven. He said something about the Veil."

    "And it sounded like he really . . . dislikes you. Did something happen?"

    Ulow held out Rin's pendant before her eyes for several moments. The fog of her mind had always been heavy, but her expression as of late had remained in a somber, unfeeling porcelain mask. The goddess was always in such a good mood. It made her feel awkward, alrough she didn't have the mental strength to show it.

    Right now, the she-foxes' words only made her realize that she had entirely forgotten to ask Armitage about Fillis... Or, perhaps, deep down, she was afraid to ask because she didn't want to hear the exact same answer yet again. It made her feel like he never even existed at all.

    In that moment, the pale thing remembered watching Saiza's disturbed sleep. She remembered the taste of his nightmares, and how familiar it had seemed.

    Slowly, she took the necklace from around her neck, smoothly grasped and placed it into one of Rin's hands, and then took a comfortable seat away from the orange sunflare billowing through the paper blinds. There was a massive pile of cushions in the corner, but it still wasn't half as dark as she would have liked it.

    As much time as she had spent on the surface, it still hurt her eyes.

    "Veil? What veil? Like, what, the dance of the seven veils? Yeah, I know that one. Is this a request, hando-" Rin's happy little digression was interrupted by Ulow placing the necklace in her hands before scurrying off. Rin seemed confused, sitting up. "No. It's yours, Ulow. I want you to have it." She smiled softly as she walked over to the Chitine and placed the necklace back on her. "I know you will take care of it, and because I know you will take care of it, that means I know that as long as you wear it, you will take care of yourself." She smiled and gave Ulow another chaste-by-Rin-standards kiss on the forehead. "See? I'm pretty clever for a hooker."

    Laughing, Rin sat down besides the Chitine and turned her attention back to Mathias. "Oh, you know how grumpy old Wizards are." She said, rolling her eyes and laughing. "He said something cruel and utterly untrue about me, and I responded by calling him out on some of his failings. He reacted poorly." Another eyeroll and a dismissive shrug that left Rinbits moving about well after the rest of her had stopped. "You now how grumpy old men can be, and how insufferable Wizards often are. No offense, handsome." A wink to Mathias. "That is why I worry about you, though, Mathias. Don't lose you way. You don't want to wind up a grumpy old wasting away in their tower, surrounded only by unfeeling golems and shutting out the most beautiful woman in the world because you're a big dump know-it-all who thinks they're just so-smart." Rin seemed almost annoyed by the end there, as she whined about Armitage.
