"What is magic, to you?"
-cheerfully launches into a tears-inducing symphony, somehow appropriate for a montage-
Ceal: <W-well...it's the way things work, right?>
Thespi: -excitedly- <It's...narrative!>
Tripod: -it is beauty and light and everything that glitters-
Pollen: -darkly- <It's awful.>
Vee: -snorts- <It's annoying.>
Megan: "Well, uh, it's seemed to vary a lot, wherever we went--"
Vee: <It's so...unilateral.>
Thespi: <You tell a story to the world!>
Ceal: <H-heroes win, n-no matter how h-hard it gets...>
Pollen: <You get everything you ask for.>
Tripod: -tucked between the winding threads of melody and harmony is a string of Morse Code-
Megan: -suddenly- "Wait, do *you* have magic?"
Thespi: -hushed- <And, when every Eye is on you...>
Megan: -enthralled- "Real magic?"
Thespi: -grinning- <You tell them the way things are!>
Ceal: <A-and the day is saved!>
Pollen: -low- <And then you pay.>
Tripod: -it reads FUCK OFF-
Megan: -small- "can you show me"
Vee: -sputtering- <There's nothing to rage against, it's just you and your words and-->
Pippy: -looking up from his book- <"What is magic?">
Pippy: -beaming- <This is magic. Right here.>
Pippy: <Just us, sitting around in camp...>
Pippy: -musing- <...being together. Caring for each other.>
Tripod: -drifts into the coda-
(Thespi: -exultant- <It's the key to everything!>)
(Pollen: -bitterly- <And I can't say which is worse.>)
(Vee: -tapping paw-tips together- <If I could.>
<I'd just tear magic a new one.>)
(Megan: -excitedly- "I have so many notes--")
(Ceal: -hopeful- <And it all l-leads...to happily ever after...!>)
Pippy: -brightly- <What more could anyone wish for?>
