Hi, everyone! I'm just dropping a quick note on this brilliant system to introduce myself, since I have a moment to myself and I've found a computer to play around on. My name is Xi'an Coy Manh, and I'm your new librarian, starting as of now. I've been browsing these journals a bit, and I see you've all had a very eventful summer -- Cecilia was kind enough to explain some things to me (I think she was actually trying to shock me, but I'm pretty hard to shock ;).

Please call me Shan; being called Miss anything gives me hives. I understand things here have been a bit hectic lately, so I am sorry for arriving unexpectedly, but I wanted to see the state of the library before your classes started, and become aquainted with this lovely house so I don't get too lost when things get busy. I'm looking forward to meeting all of you; I'll probably be wandering around blissfully for the next few days, so feel free to say hi if you want to. (I'll also be taking book requests once I've figured out what we already have.)

You'll probably be seeing me around, and there are two other faces you'll likely turn up -- Leong and Nga are twins, nine, and looking for something to do after spending a few days in the van with me. (If they break anything, let me know.) They're good kids, although slightly rambunctious, and very friendly.

(Angelo, thank you so much for your help this afternoon. I don't know how I managed to accumulate that much stuff over the years, but you were much appreciated -- as was the rundown on the mansion. If I can make it up to you, let me know.)

Neither of those shocked you? Sounds like you're my kind of person - at least I don't have to convince you my power exists, for a start.

Heya, I'm Amanda, and I'm one of the resident magic users of the place. I sort of adopted one of the spare studies the graduate students use for a work area - the enormous old-looking tomes are mine. Let me know if you need me to shift anything.

Well, not when Cecilia told me, anyway. I did some browsing on the journals and had a private "wow" moment before she got to me. ;) Besides, what with all the rumours that floated around my university about some of the professors . . . I wasn't that surprised. What's your power, exactly?

If you're set up in the room, I don't see a problem with you keeping it that way. (Old books? Now you've sparked my interest. Do they need special care of any kind? Are they yours, or should I be cataloguing them too?)

Can I bribe you for a magic demonstration one of these days? I have to admit I'm just about dying of curiosity. ;)

The actual mutant power is to absorb mystic energy and use it to cast spells. Of the actual 'eye of newt' type. It's hard to explain when people a) don't know what mystic energy is and b) don't believe in magic that actually works. So I get a bit tetchy when I have to explain it to someone new.

Thanks for letting me keep the room - I need somewhere quiet and private for some of the stuff I do, and I usually keep the door locked, since some of the stuff in there isn't good to play with. The books are mine mostly, tho' some are borrowed from my magic tutor, so they shouldn't be catalogued, but I'm happy to show 'em to you. I have more in me room, more of the less scary things. *grins*

And I'm up for magic demos any time you like. Stick around long enough and you'll at least get to see the healing spell - that one gets quite the workout.

Amanda, please, please tell me the Eye of Newt is not -real-.

If you must lie to me, lie to me. I do not want to know if eyes are in our room besides the ones in our heads.

no eyes. Really. It's actually a type of plant root.

... I think I am going to add extra labels to anything in the room that looks scary in French so I can identify them at 3am when my English and Latin are not very good.

Don't worry, most of the spell components are on that highest bookshelf on my side of the room. The healing herbs are in that nifty wooden box Nate gave me on my desk. All safely out of harm's way. :)
