second choice (video)


[That talking white horse is on-'screen' again and this time the 'screen' isn't ripping. Instead, it looks like she's indoors, possibly a cafe or coffee shop judging by the background noise. Some canny numbered may even be able to recognize that she's in fact contacting the network while at Expresso Yourself, where she's become quite a regular over the course of the last month.

She takes a delicate bite from one of the sugar cookies piled on a plate in front of her before beginning to MindSpeak:]


:Hello. I'm contacting the Network to tell people that after many days and nights of careful thought, I've decided to start calling myself by my previous self's name. It's not that I don't appreciate what Shou named me all those years ago. Areonwen was a very nice name. It served me quite well when I was a horse.

But-- I'm not really a horse anymore. Or I'm in the process of becoming something else, anyway. Something that may be horse-shaped but isn't really a horse anymore than-- than--:
[There's a pause here as she obviously searches for the right word.] :Than one of your angels is a human.

In the place my previous self came from, there was an institution known as the Heralds and the Herald-Mages. They were humans who wore white uniforms and had mind magic--and the ones called Herald-Mages has true magic as well. They were there to protect the kingdom and to solve any strange or difficult problems within that kingdom.

The Heralds were partnered with beings known as Companions, who were a kind of guardian spirit that took the form of horses because it allowed us to travel quickly and gave us some convenient natural weapons by way of our hooves. That's what I'm becoming again.

And when I was a Companion my name was 'Sayvil.' I'd like it if you called me that now.:

If that's the name you wanna use, then that's the name you wanna use. No hard feelings over it at all; after all, not everyone's got nearly the same names as their past selves.

I know. Even if I may not spend that much time with you, you're still important to me too, Sayvil.
ursoreckless: (you were saying)

So basically you were once a person that became a glowy talking horse and now are my glowy talking horse?

That's pretty cool.

I did!

[He makes his way over to the table Sayvil's at.]

I've found it to be very liberating to start going by the name I remembered. I hope it is the same for you, as well.
radiantchicken: (there are really)

[personal profile] radiantchicken 2015-05-20 12:44 am (UTC)(link)
I understand.

[There is a very serious nod.]

I'd be honored that you'd tell me--and I will not tell anyone else. You have my word.

"That's amazing." Torin sounds very impressed, that much is certain. "And so something similar has happened a third time..." He's careful not to say anything out loud that might run the risk of being overheard, for his speech doesn't work in the same way as Areonwen's.
radiantchicken: (from what is)

[personal profile] radiantchicken 2015-05-24 05:09 pm (UTC)(link)
"There's a bit to be said for doing that sort of thing." Torin nods. "Many people have no idea what I am and am not capable of--I'd prefer to keep it that way. The mystery's useful."
radiantchicken: (there are really)

[personal profile] radiantchicken 2015-05-25 02:16 am (UTC)(link)
"A sound strategy, to be sure." Torin nods in approval.

"I don't think being stuck is the right word for it." There's a hint of a smile in Torin's own voice, though having a beak makes smiling impossible. "'Stuck' sounds far too unpleasant. You're anything but that."

Torin remains apparently oblivious to the fact that he said anything blushworthy. "As am I."

"I feel the same way." Torin nods. "Meeting you has been one of the brighter spots in all of this."
