No mirror, but all the posts are linked together so you can skip right to each consecutive update.
Fanart/Fanmusic/Fan-etc! (spoiler warning!)
Anyway, picking up where we left off...
You're not planning on it.
Honestly, you're not even that scared anymore. And it feels great, like you've done something impossible. Like you've taken a step in the right direction. Like maybe, for he first time in your life, you're finally living up to the name Katia Managan. Other than a regrettable, drunken one-night stand with a diseased necromancer, this is shaping up to be the best day of your life. You're having dinner with a real, live Countess and enjoying it.
I mean sure, she's completely flipping her shit over there and ruining a perfectly good knife, but something about that just makes her all the more human. It also gives you a warm reminder that if she tries to kill you, these plates will work as shields.
You are pretty curious why she got so mad, though. You swear she almost looked happy when you told her you were robbed. That was really weird and everyone just seems to be ignoring it. You better ask Quill-Weave about this before you mess up again. Of course, there's no way you can whisper in her ear without the Countess noticing.
Luckily, you know an old trick (supposedly) created by Khajiiti slaves in Morrowind. Let's see if Quill-Weave knows it too...
That must be the Imperial Legion soldier you were advised not to bring up. Quill-Weave lets go of your tail before you can why ask the Countess hates this guy so much.
You're not going to talk about the razor accident.
It's not appropriate table conversation and you don't even remember most of it.

That first panel looks like Katia is the happiest she's been in this story. But maybe that's just because of the art style.
Looking kinda creepy in that last panel, Katia.
>Finish eating dinner, wait for dessert
Countess: Calm down! Please!
Katia: ASk the wizard person if he has any tips on how to magically control dreams. IT may be useful if you start having those nightmares again!

I got nothin', but I feel like posting anyway.
>Finish meal, I guess.
Katia: Somehow look more adorable without fur
Katia: Good thinking using the plate a shield.
Potential disasters averted +1, feel good about yourself.
>continue your previous conversation about nearby sources of magic. Maybe some shops nearby where you could pick up some cheap potions.
> Finish off the rest of your plate.
>You can also use the various liquids that are located inside the various glasses sitting on the table around you as improvised fighting tools as well! Just throw it right into someone's face; it is sure to distract them, at least for a second.
Congrats on making it to your second thread Kaz!
As usual I am a useless lump and can't think of a command that isn't basically reiterating what someone else already said, so here's a fanart I started waaaaaaay the hell back when the first thread was still shiny and new.
...I'm sure I'll finish it eventually.
 Also, just wanna say that the tail talk is the cutest god damn thing I've ever seen [/edit]
>Wait for someone else to converse, honestly you're doing much better than I expected. Keep it up, kitten!
This image of avatar excellence was brought to you by MrPeach32, with greeny bits by ashdenej. Pretty much the only part I did was this signature.
that animation of the tails dropping was awesome btw....did I just say that?
Doing great! Maybe compliment.... that one elf chick who's name I can't remember on her nice dress.
Avatar by me, scratchified by ashdenej.
The tail-speak thing was awesome.
Also yay thread two
>Katia: Ask the wizard for magicky tips.

Yay thread two! Congratulations on making it this far!
Also, Katia has the coolest feet.
Maybe you should ask Baeralorn about his shoes? (Just out of nowhere)
> You should enjoy your food for now, Katia. Also a good way to spend time waiting for the countess to cool down.
I really should see about getting a new signature.
Second Thread, yay! ;P Keep it up Kaz, this rock!
>Kat, ask for a refill for your glass... and throw a deadly look at the waiter while doing it >: )
Oh, and the Countess seems to have setled down a bit... Better not talk to her for a while though. Let someone else do it.
In the mean time, you can ask Orrin if he can recomend you someone who can sell you some weapons, like a dagger or a small sword (or a machete, you have experience with those xD), just for protection while you don't master your skills. I bet he knows someone who can sell those things, since he's a blacksmith, and probably a merchant too - maybe even he can sell one to you... well, when you can afford it of course...
Congratulations on your second thread for this story Kazerad! It's kinda awesome how the story's at a perfect point for a transition now that Katia's having some happy times.
>Katia, just keep eating for awhile.
Second thread, awesome! Let's get back to business people!
