The Spark in Each of Us

Postby julianna » Sun Sep 24, 2017 3:54 pm

It has been some time since I had the chance to join in an RP session of a new initiate to the White Tower, so I though I should post it here! Many thanks to Vania, Charys, and Damena for going along!!


Vania has arrived from the east.

Raeza says 'And it always brightens my day.'

Julianna says 'East of Lugard on a farm...I shall have to look for that later today!'

Charys smiles happily.

Julianna smiles happily.

Vania looks at Julianna.

Julianna says 'Likewise!'

Charys says 'Yes, east was the last place I looked as well'

Vania looks at Charys.

Julianna says 'Hello, there. '

Vania says 'Hello'

Raeza leaves north. ^^

Vania smiles shyly.

Charys beams a smile at Vania.

Julianna says 'Welcome to Tar Valon. Is there anything you need?'

Vania blinks her eyes innocently.

A sailor has arrived from the east.

Vania says 'Well '

Julianna smiles warmly at the young woman.

Vania coughs loudly.

Vania says 'yes'

A bloodstock stallion cocks its head up sharply.
A sailor leaves west. <<

Charys says 'What is it?'

Julianna nods at her.

Vania blushes, but looks stern faced.

Vania says 'I want to learn'

Julianna smiles happily.

Julianna says 'Are you here to join the Tower?'

A local woman leaves west. <<

Vania says 'I hope so'

Charys grins evilly.

Julianna smiles happily.

A sailor has arrived from the west.

Julianna thinks really hard.

Charys says 'This is a very good place to start, if you want to learn'

Vania nods in agreement.

Charys says 'What sorts of things are you interested in learning?'

Julianna says 'Unfortunately, I do not think there are an sisters in the Tower at the moment who can induct you, but I would be happy to give you a short tour of the Tower and answer any questions you may have. '

Julianna says 'I am sure Charys would as well. '

Charys nods in agreement.

Vania says 'Everything'

Vania blinks her eyes innocently.

Julianna smiles happily.

Charys grins evilly.

Vania says 'I walked all the way from altara'

Vania says 'Well the merchant gave me a ride partly '

Julianna says 'Altara? That is quite some length to walk. '

Julianna nods at her.

Vania says 'But mostly i walked'

Vania nods to herself, she must need reassurance.

Julianna says 'Were you alone?'

Vania shakes her head.

Charys studies Vania thoughtfully.

Vania says 'My brother was with me, but he kept going north.'

A bloodstock stallion flickers its ears.

Julianna senses Charys connecting to the True Source.

Julianna purses her lips.

Julianna says 'He left you here? '

Vania says 'He wants to fight trollocs. Well moreas I abandoned him to stay here'

Vania sniffs sadly.

A sailor leaves south. vv

Julianna says 'He should have at least seen you inducted into the novice books before heading off north. '

Julianna frowns.

Julianna says 'Men. '

Charys nods in agreement.

Charys says 'Always some grand adventure or something'

Vania says 'Well he isnt the brightest'

Vania nods in agreement.

Julianna chuckles politely.

Charys snorts, 'Trollocs!'

Vania rolls her eyes...sheesh!..

Vania says 'Like a storybook'

Julianna says 'Well, perhaps the Lancers will set him straight. I have a cousin in their ranks who can after him. '

Charys nods in agreement.

Vania nods in agreement.

Vania says 'I hope so'

Julianna says 'Can you channel, child? Or did you come north simply on the hopes that you can learn from the Tower?'

Vania blinks her eyes innocently.

Charys looks at Vania.

Vania says 'Well....'

Vania says 'I don't know'

Julianna nods in agreement.

Vania looks at Charys.

Julianna says 'It is rare for a woman to be born with the spark. '

Vania looks at Julianna.

Charys says 'You will surely know soon enough'

Julianna nods at her.

Charys says 'Vania, do you have a weapon with which to defend yourself?'

Vania nods in agreement.

Charys nods in agreement.

Vania gets a bladed feather staff from a backpack.

Julianna nods in agreement.

Julianna says 'Good. '

Vania says 'I figured it was safe to put it away in the city'

Charys says 'Tar Valon is very safe, so do not worry.'

Vania puts a bladed feather staff in a backpack.

Charys nods in agreement.

Julianna says 'It tends to be safe, within the Shining Walls.'

Charys says 'I only think of your journey and hoped you did not come all this way unarmed'

Vania says 'Bandits attacked the merchants wagon on the way up here'

Vania says 'well....'

The day has begun.

Vania says 'I didnt have one'

A sailor has arrived from the east.
A city lamplighter extinguishes a streetlamp.

Vania says 'I used this when the bandits came'

Julianna nods in agreement.

Vania shrugs helplessly.

Vania says 'I was terrible. My brother did most of the work'

Julianna says 'Sometimes we must defend ourselves. '

Charys nods in agreement.

An old woman has arrived from the east.

are not sure that you can channel?
Julianna says 'Vania, if you don't mind my asking...how did you make the decision to come to Tar Valon if
you are not sure that you can channel?'

An old woman leaves south. vv
A sailor leaves south. vv

Vania says 'Well, my family always talked about going to Tar Valon'

Julianna nods slowly, listening closely.


Vania says 'My grandmothers sister came when she was young'

Julianna says 'Was she able to channel?'

Vania says 'She was. That was why she left'

Julianna smiles happily.

An old woman has arrived from the south.

Julianna says 'Do you know, perchance if she was ever raised to Accepted or Aes Sedai?'

Charys says 'I wonder how common it is for a woman who can channel to pass that on to her children...

Vania says 'She used to send letters to my grandmother, but that was long ago'

Charys taps her lip thoughtfully.

Vania says 'before I was born'

Julianna nods slowly to Charys.

Julianna says 'I think it is common, though I have not done any research on the subject.'

Julianna smiles at her.

Charys says 'I don't think Aes Sedai tend to have chidren. It would be an interesting subject of study'

Julianna nudges her with your elbow.

Charys blushes.

Julianna says 'Something to take to Carlia Sedai!'

Charys says 'Indeed'

Julianna looks back to Vania.

An old woman leaves south. vv

Vania says 'to my knowledge neither my mother nor my grandmother can'

Charys says 'Perhaps we should be following up on the women that leave the tower more closely.'

Julianna nods at her.

Julianna says 'Perhaps it skips generations?'

Vania says 'It was my Grandmothers sister. I do not know if she has children'

Charys says 'I've heard that is common with many traits'

Charys says 'Very interesting'

Julianna says 'I wish I could help you to see if you could channel, but that is something better left to an Aes Sedai. If you should be enrolled in the novice books, though, I would be happy to help train you should you wish. '

Vania smiles happily.

An old woman has arrived from the south.

Vania says 'I would very much love to learn from both of you'

Charys beams a smile at Vania.

Julianna smiles happily.

Charys says 'I'm glad you came, regardless of the results'

An old woman leaves east. >>

Vania says 'You sound like you know so many things!'

Vania sips from the fountain.

Vania gets a water skin from a backpack.

Vania empties a water skin.

Julianna says 'Do you have any questions that we may answer? '

Charys says 'Even if it turns out you can't channel, I'm sure there is still much to learn in Tar Valon'

Vania gently fills a water skin from an elaborately sculpted fountain.


Charys says 'We have a wonderful library'

Charys smiles happily.

Charys grins at Julianna.

Julianna nods at her.


Vania says 'Why do you two wear the same dress?'

Kamorra has arrived from the west.

Kamorra curtseys gracefully.

Vania looks at Kamorra.

Julianna says 'It is wonderful, except when you have to shelves books...'

Julianna smiles at her.

Julianna says 'Hello child. '

Charys says 'Really? That's my favorite part'

Vania says 'Hello'

Charys says 'I get to see so many books that I didn't even know we had'

Charys says 'For example, today, there was a book on the Old tongue'

Kamorra leaves east. >>

Charys says 'Why, I barely was able to put it back. I wanted it for myself'

Charys says 'Anyway, sorry Vania'

Vania smiles happily.

Charys says 'We wear the same dress because it marks us as Accepted of the White Tower'

Vania says 'That is alright, books are very interesting'

Vania says 'I have four back home.'

Charys beams a smile at Vania.

Julianna says 'All Accepteds wear the same dress, white with the colors of the seven Ajahs on the hem and cuffs. As all novices wear the same pure white dress. It represents our dedication to the Tower, and how we are being trained to represent the Tower. '

Vania says 'ohhh'

Julianna nods at her.

Charys says 'It is truly the way to knowledge'

Charys says 'Reading that is'

Vania walks around Julianna examining all the colors.

A man has arrived from the west.

Julianna holds out her arms, letting Vania take a look at the banded hem and cuffs.

Vania says 'Blue, Red, White, Yellow, Brown, Gray, Green'

Charys smiles softly.

Julianna nods at her.

Charys says 'Each Ajah is slightly different in its focus and goals'

Vania says 'What is an Ajah?'

Julianna smiles happily.

Vania blinks her eyes innocently.

Julianna says 'They are .... communities within the Tower'

A bloodstock stallion lays its ears flat against its neck.

Julianna says 'Groups of Aes Sedai that share common goals and interests. '

A local woman leaves east. >>

Charys says 'As you work and learn, you'll begin to see where your passions lie. At that point, you'll start thinking of which Ajah you wish to join. Those such as I, who love to learn and readand study, might choose the Brown'

Julianna nods in agreement.

Vania says 'Brown Ajah likes to learn things?'

Charys says 'There are those who wish to fight the Shadow. They are the Greens and they stand ready to defend us in the Last Battle'

Charys nods at Vania.

The sun sets, washing the city in fiery colors.

Vania says 'I like the learn things.'

Charys says 'There is so much that has been lost '

Julianna says 'Those such as I, who enjoy the concepts of justice and dedication, may join the Blue. '

The River Lady has arrived at the docks.

The fountain splashes merrily, light sparkling beautifully on the surface of the water.

Vania says 'I'm not sure I want to fight.'

Vania ponders life, the universe, and everything.

Vania says 'Blue Ajah like justice?'

Charys nods in agreement.

Vania says 'and dedication'

Kamorra has arrived from the east.

Kamorra curtseys gracefully.

Charys beams a smile at Kamorra.

A man leaves west. <<
The night has begun.

Charys says 'Hello, Kamoora'

Kamorra says 'has anyone seen the hunter trainer?'

Charys says 'Pardon me, Kamorra'

Vania purses her lips and taps them with a finger, she is clearly thinking very hard.

Charys grins evilly.

Kamorra grins at Charys.

Julianna says 'They are steroetypes, to be sure, but give a brief overview of their respective interests and goals. The White are dedicated to logic, the Yellow to Healing, the Gray to mediation, the Red
to hunting down men who can channel, the Green to fighting the Shadow, the Blue to justice and causes, and the Brown to knowledge and discovering what has been lost. '

smile kamorra
Julianna smiles at her.


Vania says 'Her dress is white'
Adelle has arrived from the south.

Charys nods in agreement.

Vania looks at Adelle.

Charys says 'She is a Novice'

Charys says 'You will wear a dress like hers'

Vania says 'And this one is an accepted too?'

Vania beams a smile at Adelle.

Julianna senses Adelle connecting to the True Source.

Julianna senses Adelle is channeling saidar.

Kamorra says 'thank you!'

Kamorra curtseys gracefully.

Charys nods in agreement.

Charys beams a smile at Adelle.

Adelle beams a smile at Vania.

Adelle has arrived from the west, riding a warhorse.

Adelle sits down and rests.

An old woman has arrived from the east.

Vania says 'A novice'

Charys nods in agreement.

Vania says 'She curtsies to you'

Charys nods in agreement.

Vania ponders life, the universe, and everything.

Vania says 'Why?'

Julianna says 'A sign of respect. '

Charys says 'And we curtsy to the Aes Sedai. It is a matter of respect and honor'

nod charys
Julianna nods at her.

Vania nods in agreement.

Vania curtseys gracefully.

Charys grins evilly.

Charys says 'Don't worry, you're not a novice yet'

Julianna says 'Aes Sedai call Accepted and novices "child" as we are children of the Tower. Technically, Accepted may refer to novices as child as well, though most Accepted are not overly formal. '

Vania says 'But I do respect you very much. You have been very helpful'

Charys says 'But there IS a lot of curtsying in the Tower'

Charys giggles.

Charys beams a smile at Vania.

smile vania
Julianna smiles at her.

Vania ruffles her nose.

An ogier has arrived from the west.

Vania says 'I dont like being called child'
Charys says 'In the same way, we call the Amyrlin Seat Mother'

Julianna nods at her.

Charys says 'But Vania, you have learned nothing yet, so you come to us as a child'

Adelle stops resting, and clambers on her feet.

Julianna senses Adelle connecting to the True Source.

Julianna senses Adelle is channeling saidar.

Vania says 'I suppose this is true'

Vania peers closely at Adelle, trying to figure her out.

Julianna senses Adelle is channeling saidar.

Charys says 'As you learn and grow in the One Power and in other ways, you will game more responsibility and fewer people will call you child.'

Julianna says 'You should get used to it, unfortunately. If you choose to join the Tower, you shall be a "child" for a very long time. It is a long and arduous road to becoming an Aes Sedai. '

An ogier leaves south. vv

Julianna nods at her.

Charys nods in agreement.

Vania says 'I will need to learn very quickly so nobody calls me child for long.'

Charys grins evilly.

Julianna smiles warmly.

Julianna says 'I have no doubt you will become an Accepted in short order.'

Charys nods in agreement.

Charys says 'And we will be here to help you, whatever you need'

Julianna says 'I think you will do well here, Vania. I truly hope that you are entered into the novice
books.'

nod charys
Julianna nods at her.

Adelle says 'You will also probably need to learn which things to be troubled by, and which to brush
off.'

Julianna senses Adelle connecting to the True Source.

Charys says 'Also, how do you feel about dishes?'

Julianna senses Adelle is channeling saidar.

Charys blinks her eyes innocently.

Vania says 'What should I be troubled by?'

Vania says 'I have done many dishes back home.'

Julianna snorts at the reference to dishes.

Charys says 'Excellent, you're a pro then'

Adelle snaps her fingers.

Vania says 'Those were my chores'
Charys grins evilly.

Adelle says 'Dougan is off locs'

Adelle leaves west riding a warhorse.

Vania says 'well... part of them'

Adelle has arrived from the west.

Adelle leaves north. ^^

Vania says 'A very small part'

Vania sighs loudly.

Charys nods in agreement.

Vania says 'I wonder who is doing them now that I am gone'

Charys says 'Leaving one's family is never an easy choice'

Vania shakes her head.

Julianna nods at her.

Charys says 'Coming to the Tower means casting off who you once were'
Julianna says 'It is difficult. '

Julianna says 'But you will make new friends, who will one day become like your family here in the Tower.'

Charys nods in agreement.

Vania ponders life, the universe, and everything.

Vania nods in agreement.

An old woman leaves west. <<

Vania says 'Do you ever regret it?'

An old woman has arrived from the west.

Vania says 'Leaving your life behind?'

Charys hesitates a moment, her eyes thoughtful.

Vania says 'Im sorry, you dont need to answer that.'

Vania says 'That is personal'

Charys says 'Well, I think regret is the wrong word'

A bloodstock stallion cocks its head up sharply.

An old woman has arrived from the south.

Vania hides her blush under her hand.

attached to the Tower....no. I do not regret it at all.

Julianna says 'I did early in my days as a novice. But that was because it was difficult. Once I became attached to the Tower....no. I do not regret it at all.'

Charys says 'The life I have here is fulfilling and wonderful'

The sun casts a golden glow over the city.

Vania nods in agreement.

Charys says with a touch of sadness, 'But I do think of my family sometimes. Particularly my brother.

Julianna nods at her.

Vania says 'My brother can handle himself'

Vania says 'As long as he has someone to tell him what to do'

The day has begun.

A city lamplighter extinguishes a streetlamp.
>>

Charys beams a smile at Vania.

Julianna says 'I often think of my father, who was a barrister in Illian. I still write him sometimes. '

A pike has been raised here for showing off trophies.

Vania says 'Have you been in the tower for awhile, either of you?'

Julianna purses her lips, counting in her head.

Charys nods in agreement.

Kamorra has arrived from the east.

Kamorra leaves south. vv

Julianna says 'Yes. Quite some time. '

Vania nods in agreement.

Charys says 'A while, I suppose. To be honest, time has split in mind to before the Tower and after.

Charys says 'sometimes the before feels like a dream'

Julianna nods at her.

Charys says 'A different life'

A bloodstock stallion cocks its head up sharply.

Vania looks thoughtful.

Vania says 'I do hope to make something more of myself here'

Charys says 'I've had no contact with my family since I came. In fact, I even changed my name'

Vania says 'You did?!'

Charys nods in agreement.

Charys says 'I did'

Vania ponders life, the universe, and everything.

Vania nods in agreement.

Charys says 'Coming to the Tower really is about becoming someone new. We have so much potential
within us'

Charys says 'Our past can hold us back'

Vania says 'I do not have much of a past to hold me back'

The River Lady has arrived at the docks.

Charys says 'Then you are already at an advantage'

Vania says 'It was a very boring life in the village'

Julianna says 'A very wise Aes Sedai, Katherine Sedai, once told me that the Tower is like a stone in a river. Over the long years, the pressure of movement of the water reshapes even the strongest rocks. Having come here, the Tower will one day reshape you, often leaving behind your past life.'

A bloodstock stallion pricks its ears forward and looks alert.

Vania says 'Reading those same four books over and over again'

A lively group of women has arrived from the west.

Vania says 'Katherine Sedai'

Julianna nods in agreement.

Vania says 'She sounds wise indeed'

Vania says 'Are all Aes Sedai wise?'

Julianna grins impishly.

Charys coughs loudly.

Julianna says 'The right answer is yes.'

Vania blinks her eyes innocently.

Charys giggles.

Charys says 'Well, they're all probably wiser than us, that's for sure'

Julianna says 'The fuller answer is that Aes Sedai are people, just like anyone else. Some are wiser than
others. '

Vania nods in agreement.

A lively group of women leaves south.

Vania says 'Are there many Aes Sedai?'

An old woman leaves west. <<

Vania looks at Aishana.

Charys grins at Aishana.

Aishana puts a wickedly scythed longsword in a wooden barrel.

Julianna says 'A good many. Perhaps not as many as before.'

Aishana sits down and rests.

Julianna smiles at her.

Vania says 'Hello other Accepted!'

Aishana winks suggestively.

Vania says 'There seem to be many accepted'

Aishana looks at Vania.

Charys says 'Aishana, Vania is hoping to join the Tower'

Julianna nods at her.

Vania nods in agreement.

Vania says 'What a peculiar rat'

Vania says 'That man runs through and the rat follows'

Julianna cocks her head to the side.

Julianna says 'Have you never heard that rats are Shadoweyes? Do they not speak of that in Altara?'

Vania blinks her eyes innocently.

Julianna feels the flows of saidar coursing through her body.

Julianna begins to weave the appropriate flows...

Julianna weave flows of Earth to create a meal.

Vania says 'Shadoweyes?'

Julianna begins to weave the appropriate flows...

Julianna weave flows of Earth to create a meal.

Julianna eats the fruit.

Julianna eats the fruit.

Julianna is full.

Julianna says 'Rats, ravens, crows. They are spies for the Dark One. '

Vania says 'There were rats in the village I lived in, I dont recall them following me around'

Vania shivers uncomfortably.

Vania looks at Riloz.

Vania gets brushed aside as the man rushes through

Vania says 'He was in a rush'

Julianna smiles happily.

Charys stops resting, and clambers on her feet.

Vania says 'He looks like a person'

Charys grins evilly.

Vania ponders life, the universe, and everything.

I would not want to impose on you. Charys and myself are answering her questions.

Tower. I would not want to impose on you. Charys and myself are answering her questions. '

Charys says 'I see several Aes Sedai are awake now'

Julianna falls down laughing.

Julianna says 'They are people!'

Vania blinks her eyes innocently.

Charys says 'Yeah, but they're more like...PEOPLE'

Charys blinks her eyes innocently.

Julianna says 'They are bonded to an Aes Sedai, and trained to defend and fight, but they are still people.

Julianna drinks the water.

Julianna drinks the water.

Julianna doesn't feel thirsty any more.

Charys says 'Did you know that Green Aes Sedai can have more than one Warder?'

Julianna gently fills a water skin from an elaborately sculpted fountain.

Julianna drops her voice to a loud whisper.

Kamorra has arrived from the east.

Kamorra leaves west. <<

Julianna says 'The Green Ajah sometimes marries their Warders!'

Vania says 'A gleeman once told a story about a Green Aes Sedai'

Charys nods in agreement.

Vania says 'And her eight warders'

Charys gasps in astonishment.

Charys says 'Eight!'

Julianna chuckles politely.

Vania says 'It started off well, but I stopped listening after she married the third one'

Charys says 'Who could manage so many men?'

Julianna says 'Eight?! That is way too many men to manage!'

Charys says 'It would be like herding cats'

Charys nods at Julianna.

Julianna cannot help but break into a fit of giggles.

Charys snickers softly.

The sun sets, washing the city in fiery colors.

Charys says 'I do want one though'

Julianna nods in agreement.

Aishana says 'They just slow you down'

Julianna says 'As do I. '

Charys's eyes take on a dreamy cast.

Aishana says 'Walking around on foot all the time'

Charys pokes Aishana in the ribs.

Vania says 'You said they bond them?'

Charys says 'That's what gates are for'

An old woman has arrived from the west.

Julianna nods at her.

Aishana says 'Not nearly as useful as traveling'

Charys says 'Yes, there is a bond between an Aes Sedai and her Warder'

Vania says 'As in they are connected?'

Vania shivers uncomfortably.

Charys nods in agreement.

The night has begun.

Vania says 'How?'

Aishana looks at Charys.

Aishana gets a bladed feather staff from a backpack.

Aishana gives a bladed feather staff to Charys.

Vania says 'Oh'

Charys says 'Yay!'

Vania says 'I do not think I would want to be connected to any man'

Charys says 'Then perhaps the Red is for you'

Charys says 'Thought probably not, if you do not wish to fight'

Charys says 'Not all Aes Sedai have warders'

An old woman leaves west. <<

Julianna says 'No one is forced to have a Warder. '

Charys says 'Really it's a personal choice I suppose. '

Vania says 'The Red Ajah do not like men?'

Charys says 'Um...'

Charys says 'Aishana?'

Charys says 'Thoughts?'

Julianna purses her lips.

Charys blinks her eyes innocently.

Aishana peers closely at Charys, trying to figure her out.

Charys giggles.

Aishana says 'It's not a matter of disliking them'

Aishana says 'The reds hunt those that can channel'

Aishana says 'To prevent another breaking'

Vania says 'That makes more sense.'

Julianna says 'The Red don't like men...that is a diplomatic way to put it. Perhaps she should be a Gray, huh Charys?'

A black cat has arrived from the south.

Julianna nudges her with your elbow.

Charys grins evilly.

Vania says 'A group of women gathered who just hate men, seems rather...'

Vania shrugs helplessly.

Charys says 'I don't understand it really. Men can be quite delightful'

Vania shrugs helplessly.

Julianna narrows her eyes at Charys.

Vania says 'Some are, most are not'

Vania says 'So can you tell me anything about the Aes Sedai I will see?'

Vania says 'I want to make a good impression so they will let me in'

Vania blinks her eyes innocently.

Charys grins evilly.

Charys says 'If you can channel, I don't think it matters what kind of impression you make'

Vania says 'They let anyone who can channel learn ?'

Vania says 'Is that dangerous?'

Charys says 'It's very important to learn how to control the One Power, so any woman who can channel
is admitted'

Vania says 'Ohh'

Vania says 'That makes sense'

Charys says 'It is far more dangerous to allow women to wander about the world untrained'

Julianna smiles happily.

Vania nods in agreement.

Charys says 'Careless use of the One Power is very dangerous'

Vania says 'I guess its like letting a child carry a sword'

whites!
Julianna says 'If you can channel, the Tower will not let you leave Tar Valon without enrolling you in
novice whites!'

Charys nods in agreement.

Vania blinks her eyes innocently.

Julianna says 'Very much so, Vania.'

Vania looks at Charys.

Charys says 'Now, whether or not you become Accepted and eventually Aes Sedai is an entirely
different matter'

Vania looks at Julianna.

Vania says 'You can both channel?'

Julianna nods to Charys.

Vania blinks her eyes innocently.

Charys says 'For a time'

The sun sets, washing the city in fiery colors.

Vania says 'That must be useful'

Charys says 'There are many different weaves. Some women are more talented at some than others'

Charys says 'For example, the Yellows specialize in healing weaves'

Julianna says 'Wash away a person's fatigue. Make them stronger. Create fire, cure blindness, Heal wounds. Do not worry, you will learn all this and more as you rise though the Tower ranks.'

Charys says 'While the Greens and Reds probably find more use in combat weaves'

Damena has arrived from the south.

Julianna senses Damena connecting to the True Source.

Charys stops resting, and clambers on her feet.

The room becomes brighter as Damena creates a ball of light above her hand.

Charys curtseys before Damena.

Julianna says 'Charys, do you remember whether any Aes Sedai can induct a novice, or is it only a Sitter?'

Charys sits down and rests.

Damena looks at Vania.

Julianna spreads her skirts in a low curtsey

Charys says 'I do not know'

Damena sits down on a bench.

Vania squeeks when the accepted begin to curtsy.

Julianna says 'The Light illumine you, Damena Sedai. '

Damena says 'And you as well, Accepted.'

Damena says 'Good day, child.'

Vania straightens slowly.

Damena says 'Tell me, where are you from and how is it you came to seek tutelage in the White
Tower?'

Vania nods slowly,

Vania says 'Altara, Aes Sedai.'

Vania says 'My family always talked about going to Tar Valon to learn, See my grandmothers sister came a very long time ago.'

Charys smiles encouragingly at Vania.

Vania says 'I came here because I want to learn too.'

Damena says 'What is your gradmother's sister's name, child?'

Vania says 'They would not mention her, My grandmother still resent that she stopped writing. The last time she heard from her she had become an Accepted. But I did overhear...'

Vania blinks her eyes innocently.

Vania says 'Something like tonya'

Vania shrugs helplessly.

Vania says 'Apologies, they wouldnt mention her name.'

Damena says 'Strange that they know she came to the White Tower but would not mention her name to you...'

A bloodstock stallion cocks its head up sharply.

Julianna nods to Vania in encouragement.

Damena absent-mindedly strokes the fringes of her shawl.

Vania says 'THey used to write to each other after she left'

The River Lady has arrived at the docks.

Damena says 'And what is it that you wish to learn in the White Tower?'

Vania says 'My mother told me, but Gran wouldnt mention it. I made the mistake once'

Vania says 'Everything'

Damena says 'We have great libraries here, of course, but I am sure there are great libraries in Altara as well.'

Charys says 'Aes SEdai'

Vania says 'I want to be able to channel too'

Julianna nods at Charys.

Vania says 'I do hope I can learn'

Damena says 'Channeling is not something you learn, child.'

Charys beams a smile at Vania.

Damena says 'You are either able to do it, or you are not.'

Vania looks crestfallen.

Damena says 'You may learn how to refine your abilities, of course.'

Vania says 'How do i know if i can?'

The day has begun.

Damena says 'But if you do not have the spark, well...'

A city lamplighter extinguishes a streetlamp.
>>

Damena looks at the Accepted.

Damena says 'Tell me, girls, what is it you feel about this woman that leads you to believe she would be a good initiate of the White Tower.'

Julianna clears her throat, eyes widening thoughtfully.

Vania nervously puts her water skin to her lips.

Vania sips from the skin.

Vania drinks water from a water skin.

Vania drinks water from a water skin.

Vania downs the entire water skin in two gulps.

Julianna says 'She is eager, Damena Sedai. There are too few young girls who come to the Tower as of their own volition, let alone those who have a vested interest in joining the Tower and learning. Carys and I also spoke of the difficulties in the Tower, how hard being a novice can be. Nothing that we spoke to her of has deterred her from her interest.'

Vania puts a water skin in a backpack.

Damena nods at Julianna. 'I see.'

Vania says 'I can wash dishes.'

Vania says 'I am very good at washing dishes'

Damena says 'As can all of the scullery maids.'

A prophet of the dragon has arrived from the south.

Damena says 'Certainly washing the dishes is not what makes a Novice a Novice.'

Damena says 'No, no. To be inducted to the White Tower, we must first sense in you that which is unique to all of us.'

Vania says 'I want to learn '

Vania says 'I will do anything'

The Fal Dara alarm horn sounds loudly.

Damena says 'Accepted Julianna, you mentioned many great qualities in this girl, but not the
greatest reason one studies in the White Tower.'

Damena nods towards Julianna. 'Perhaps, if you could get her to channel something...?'

A fishmonger has arrived from the south.

Julianna nods slowly.

Vania says 'Is there any...any way to test if I can learn?'

Vania blinks her eyes innocently.

Charys disappears into the void.

Charys has returned.

Julianna says 'My apologies, Aes Sedai. I did not attempt to test her for the spark without the supervision of an Aes Sedai. By your leave, I shall see if she does?'

A prophet of the dragon leaves east. >>

Damena flicks her wrist towards Julianna. 'Go on.'

A prophet of the dragon has arrived from the east.

Julianna nods at Damena Sedau.

Julianna smiles at Vania.

Vania smiles at Julianna.

Vania looks both nervous and excited at the same time as she turns to face Julianna.

Julianna says 'Ok. Vania, close your eyes. Focus on your breathing...in and out...in and out. Focus just on that breath until all other thoughts slip away.'

Vania takes a deep breath.

A prophet of the dragon leaves south. vv

Vania crosses her hands over her chest as she breathes deeply, ' be the rosebud'

Julianna says '*Feel* that warmth. And feel yourself slowly unfolding, petals opening to the sun's warmth.

Vania feels the warmth of the sun and breathes deeply.
