Thank you all for coming along on this weird and wild journey with me.
I'm so excited to keep going 💙
Phaedra looks on, curious.
Phaedra: I know the Lodestar Guild has invented some really amazing things... and the church has allowed SOME of them to be fully adopted. Radios, engines, prosthetic limbs... some types of medicine... What kind of things did your mom make?
Pavel thinks, and imagines his mother amidst a field of stars, grass, and ferns. Enjoying a hot cup of coffee, reading one of her books, and admiring one of her potted plants.
Pavel: She was... ...no... She IS a chemist, and an apothecary. And she likes to grow plants. She makes all kinds of amazing medicines for people in Salabay. Some people think she's a witch, but she's not.
He imagines his home, brightly lit in the night, warm and cozy... and so far away.
Pavel (offscreen): A lot of people wanted her to stay away from them... so my dad built us a cabana with a Revenite lighthouse, and a lab where she could work.
Phaedra (offscreen): Oh! Is your dad a Lodestar too?
Pavel (offscreen): No, but he did a ton of things to help the guild, even without being a scientist...
