Is it unheard of to, say, develop new abilities?

Hypothetically speaking?

Say, like being able to kind of see in the dark? But not really?

I got all my powers at different times. Already had wings and been able to zap for years before I started with the shrinking.

Yeah, you fall into the special category with Jay with not only secondary but tertiary mutation.

So, out of curiosity, where do I fall?

You'd actually have to ask a geneticist for the specifics, I'm only a layman, albeit a genius-level intellect with a phenomenal wealth of anecdotal expertise in the subject.

If I had to list my greatest strengths, among them would be my humility.

I"m glad you acknowledge it, too.

Forge says that you strong people are bricks. I think you fall under Brick (house, mighty mighty)

Well, they're kind of all related, although bugs generally stay small and don't get to grow up to 5'4" tall when they want.

Define "kind of see in the dark but not really"?

Uh. Normally I crash into things in the dark, because it is early.

But now I'm starting to know things are just *there*

Like, what is it called... sonar?

Interesting. But I guess it makes a sort of sense since your powers factor in various vibrations . . . is it consistent, or only when you can't see?

I... really have no idea.

I haven't been able to get it to work on command, exactly. It helps when I *can't* see.

Yeah, a lot of things are easier when you don't have any alternative . . .

Actually, I know someone who went through something similar. Let me check with her. Maybe she can help.

Okay, I checked -- Betsy's agreed to offer a few pointers, if you'd like them. She spent a while depending on her telepathy for navigation because of an injury, so she's definitely familiar with the concept. She'll be in touch to set up a time.

It'll be okay. There's no psychic influence this time, I promise.

Besides, if you can learn to do something with Betsy standing right next to you you're pretty much set for life.

I am going to haunt your ass if she kills me.

Julio, I think you have enough of a self-preservation instinct to keep from letting yourself do something stupid in my presence that'll force me to harm you. I may slightly maim, perhaps, but nothing mortal.

To make you feel better, I'll even keep the sais at home.

...I feel much better already.

She said with her usual dry British wit, and not in any way seriously.

Except probably for the part about the sais.

I like my blood to stay in my body, gracias.

Pish, posh. Preferences aside, blood is useful inside and outside the body.

You'll do fine. You should probably get some sleep beforehand, though. I'm about to do so myself.

Good night. And Betsy -- play nice.

Relax. She did use to be a teacher here, you know. Without the extenuating circumstances of earlier this year, that is. She knows what she's doing.

You're so cute when you're being supportive, you know.
