You must learn from the mistakes of others. You can't possibly live long enough to make them all yourself. - Sam Levenson
Cristov This person clearly isn't familiar with the Circle of Mages.
Nathan I don’t think we’ve made them all, Cris.
Cristov Perhaps not, but there are a fair few in the Circle who are doing their dead level best to.
Jahx Some of them are not the sharpest wits I’ve ever seen. I have magicker students that have more common sense.
Cristov I wouldn’t act as though you’ve never showed less than immaculate judgment, young man!
Jahx Who said I was? We all make mistakes. I think you might have even made one or two in your time.
Nathan Ooooh, Jahx. Dangerous ground you’re treading on.
Cristov I suppose it’s a fair point. There is no shame in making mistakes, IF one learns from them.
Jahx Indeed, as I’ve told my students many a time.
Cristov Good advice.
Nathan Okay, how is it that Jahx got away with that, but anyone else would be scrubbing out the privies? Is this some kind of weird and thoroughly biased, I might add, Headmaster’s Society pact?
Jahx That’s utterly ridiculous, Nathan.
Cristov Preposterous. Two grown people should be able to have a conversation and discuss a point of view.
Nathan In that case I think you’re both pompous dafnits.
Jahx That’s not a point of view, Nathan. That’s an inflammatory statement.
Cristov One that will earn you an afternoon of cleaning up the grounds at the Keep.
Nathan But it’s freezing outside and I have meetings!
Cristov You should have considered that before you decided to be rude. Perhaps THIS TIME you’ll learn from your mistake. See you in an hour, and I’d dress warm if I were you.
Nathan Grrr! I quit.
Jahx Not much common sense with that one, is there?
Cristov TELL me!!!
