"What's in an accent? Geez, only Americans and Germans can be so ignorant... You ... You- A word consists of two elements: The audible form and its meaning. You can change neither one as you want. A word is a word, and any change to it is ... it's like taking a picture and drawing over it.
And yes, it's French. And it's pronounced soufflé."

She chuckled "Your life is honey, sweetie... Mine are much more mundane, I never actually imagined getting out of Seattle." She took a bit of chocolate and closed her eyes... "Souffle, chocolate cake, or whatever... it is good". 


When the two are finished with the souffle, Anna's eyes lit up..."So you want to meet my Vurk?". She was clearly looking up for that.

She said "So your linguist abilities have their limitations... It is short for Vurken, a boyfriend in Or'zet."

bnc falls silent for a second, pondering on what Anna just said. She then looks her in the eyes and asks: "You kidding? Ar dromon riyashul Or'zet. Ar ma rana ork. Ora ar hangrono hek ur dromaz Or'zet, shakar hek?"

Anna replied and was a bit slugish and hesitant with the words. She speaks English very fast, her German clearly takes concentration.
"Ich spreche nicht Or'zet oder was auch immer das war"

OOC: mainly for myself:
(Translation: I do not speak Orz'et, or whatever that was.)

# well translated! It's perfect.

"Ich auch nicht, aber Singularity spricht Or'zet." bnc cracks a genuine smile.

"Singularity is, for me, the personification of freedom and power. Only, it's not a person. Singulartiy is the name of a skillsoft network. I had skilljacks and skillwires implanted into my brain and body. With the singulartiy membership, I can just download the basics of any field of knowledge, language or even activity and use it as if I had learned it. I can download friggin' jazz dance and get going. I won't be good at any of these but with a little bit of research and the basics, you know what things I can do. It's just soooooo awesome!"

She said clearly impressed "So Singulatity gives skills... and with my health magic augmenting body and mind you can be really good at anything, at a whim."

bnc ponders at this for a second, then nods.
Then grins.
And her grin widens.

"Let's try it! What will I do? Playing a music instrument? Drawing? Juggling?"

She said, "Perhaps drawing is the most accessible? Could you possibly sketch my portrait in a nice manner?"

"All right!", bnc exclaims excitedly, "cast the spell to improve my artistic sense, and let's go. Uhmm... do you want a portrait, a caricature or maybe manga style?"

Anna said "Caricature!  It leaves room for some artist interpretation"....
"Come to the loo with me..." She said grinning. There out of sight she'd cast the improve intuition spell on bnc

OOC: She has 17 dice in health spells, so I'll just take 4 hits.

# Drawing: 12d6t5 2 meh, I could have just bought more hits than this -.-
"Fine by me!"
bnc loads a free sketching program and shares the AR feed with Anna. It's a not so artistic sketch, that's not altogether bad but far from being especially original. It depicts Anna with a too big smile, too big eyes and too big breasts.

"Hm", bnc says upon finishing. "I think I still have to get used to these techniques ... give me another chance. I'll do a portrait now!"

# Drawing: 12d6t5 4

"Wow ... this is ... this is you, Anna. I really just drew you! The techniques, they just ... I just knew them. This is ... this is so cool!"
