Certification

It turns out that Adana's space station is not in Bartalamos' jurisdiction. She wouldn't be inclined to care much, except that means that in her new jurisdiction, she does not have a license. Since she is very much a summoner, and would not like to be an illegal summoner - she will take their test. She's fortunate in the fact that this particular government plays fair with foreigners that have summoner's licenses. She does not have to go through the grueling paperwork process, or wait ages in line, or take a test she knows all of the answers to, anyway.

What she does need to do, though, is demonstrate a capability to summon and bind a daeva, securely. Their definition of secure is different from hers. Theirs involves binding a daeva to two phrases and a task. This isn't the kind of thing Adana likes to do to her summons. It's mean, and it feels like she's reducing them to being less than people. There is one that she knows of that's used to it, at least. She doesn't know if that makes it worse, or better. So she will ask, first.

This circle is quite a bit neater than the last one, and is missing the 'no talking' clause. Calling friendly neighborhood demon, want to get summoned?

Here he is!

"Hi! I wasn't expecting you again so soon. You want your name in shiny letters on your space station?"

"Nah, it's fine, I'll play as long as it's not going to take too long. Especially if you'll get me a good list of music, I'm getting bored of what I have in the music department. But have you ever actually summoned a daeva without letting them talk, before?"

"Okay, well - you know when we can't talk we really can't, right? I have on one occasion been blamed for the death of a summoner who I desperately wanted to tell to duck. If something happens, I will not be able to say anything about it. I can't warn you if you're about to make some kind of misstep on your certification thing, I can't finish a sentence for you if you forget a word, and I cannot shout at you if there's a flaming beam of wood coming for your head. And if they want you to bring me in on a narrow-scope task that doesn't improve any of that, if all I'm there to do is follow you I'm not going to be able to give you a blood transfusion if you get hurt or - whatever. I'm not saying any of this is likely, I'm saying you're not used to having someone that crippled around. I am indestructible and you are not."

"That'd be safest, yeah. I can get a little mileage out of comically exaggerated facial expressions, and that's pretty much it."

"Your next port of call is some twee angel who's never been gagged since a bell rang and they got their wings, I'd imagine. I really don't mind, I'm used to it, it's not like having me there will make you less safe, and you need somebody to accompany you, right?"
from_scratch: (g ~ pinhole)

"And I'm not freaked out by gagging, because you're literally the only summoner who hasn't done it to me and I pick up summonses whenever I can," shrugs Cam, "but I am freaked out by the dead guy whose apprentice thought it was my fault that I had narrow instructions and no voice and his teacher was dead. That's kind of my first complaint about gag orders and everything else is a distant second."

"...Please be careful about the details? Don't ask me to stay exactly five feet from you at all times and then wander into the ladies' room, that kind of thing. I trust your judgment and if you surprise me with terrible judgment at the time I will roll my eyes and say 'no, summoner' and you will have to start over."

"I can sigh loudly, I can stomp if I'm already walking for task-related reasons, I can yawn, I can crack my neck, and I can do any of those things and similar with an extra dose of theatricality - clearly delineated communicative gestures like that are out though."

"Presumably it has to be something that entails going to the cert with you, though. Where is it, anywhere interesting?"
