Cullen Dahrvi It’s been snowing for a hundred and eighty-seven years.
Nathan den Rowan A hundred and eighty-seven years, huh?
Cristov McCuin It has only been snowing for three days.
Thor Donogan I don’t like being snowed in. It upsets me litt’l precious.
Cullen Dahrvi SNOW upsets her? Doesn’t everything in general upset Hell-ien?
Thor Donogan Now Cullen, be nice. She’s just high-strung is all.
Cristov McCuin If by high-strung you mean an irritable, mean, vindictive, malicious cow…
Thor Donogan HA! Cris, you’re funny!
Cristov McCuin Right. I was going for funny…
Arinda den Rowan-Rife Now Cris, don’t hurt his feelings. Clearly, Thor sees something wonderful in her, and after all, it’s good that someone loves her.
Cristov McCuin Spare me the hearts and bunnies routine. It’s sixteen below outside and I’ve been stuck in this library all week. I’m just in the mood for a shearing.
Cullen Dahrvi Over sticking up for Thor? You’re kidding, right?
Nathan den Rowan So what makes this week different than any other week, other than the snow? You practically live in that library.
Arinda den Rowan-Rife Besides, you could just send yourself anywhere, Cris. I think you’re just grumpy.
Cullen Dahrvi Arinda. No.
Cristov McCuin I’ll see you in Council Chambers in ten minutes. Somebody find me a shearer!
Jahx Rife Jahx protests the shearing!
Cristov McCuin On what grounds?
Jahx Rife I like my wife’s hair the way it is. Leave it alone.
Cristov McCuin Over-ruled.
Nathan den Rowan Nathan protests the shearing.
Cristov McCuin On what grounds.
Nathan den Rowan Because you are grumpy.
Cristov McCuin So that’ll be two to shear then…
Nathan den Rowan Hey! Just calling it like I see it!
Alech MacWheadon Alech protests the shearing.
Cristov McCuin Rrrrhh! What now?
Alech MacWheadon Item one: There are no actual grounds for shearing or other punishment. According to Bylaw #18/436, Section 2: We do not punish our brothers and sisters for having an opinion.
Cristov McCuin Mere words in a book!
Alech MacWheadon Item two: As a fellow member of the Council of Mages, I vote against the punishment as unjust. Shall I gather the rest of the Council for a formal vote?
Cristov McCuin Blah, blah, blah!
Alech MacWheadon Item three: I could give you a hotseat that’ll make you want to marry this snow we’re getting.
Cristov McCuin Fine! I’m going back to the library!
Alech MacWheadon Crabby old dafnit…
Cristov McCuin I heard that!
