Happy Thor’s Day!
Rogue Wizard’s Journal – October 1st, 2019
Well apparently my hunches are not that great, but still can’t shake the feeling we are being observed. Lunette pretty much said it was possible but there was nothing to be done but to try to stay alive. She has been doing this far longer than me os I defer to her judgment. September left us and now October and the changing leaves are with us.
The results of a small cabin, three people in love and regular naked sauna baths are a greater intimacy in a very short time. The three of us are very close now and quite intimate. There is also the potential for cabin fever which will come when the snows fall. To combat this now, Lunette suggested a few excursions and finding an old friend of her parents managed somehow to procure us and old Ford Pickup.
This opens up a lot of possibilities not the least of which is all of us throwing our backpacks in the back and taking off. But for now, we have used it to make a few trips. The most notable of these was to a mystic tattoo artist in a major city about 75 miles away.
Magical tattoos are the combination of alchemy for the ink and enchantment magic. There has always been a little bit of magic to a tattoo artist and the mages of the world have been going to mystic ones for a long time. They actually have their own wizard family – The House of Minerva. Well, this is the house of all people who use art and magic in combination. It should be noted one’s house is more based on magic preference or philosophical preference. It is hereditary for some mage families. Mostly though you pick one at age 12.
The tattoo artist we went to a lovely tattooed lass with a purple mohawk was House Minerva but part of the underground. Sadi can cuss and drink like a sailor. I know we would go out with her after work at the local bar. Lunette and her have worked together a couple times. She is also a wizard with tattoos in the fact she is both a top-notch alchemist and an enchantment magic specialist. I now sport three tattoos of hers. This process took about three days.
The beauty of all of them is that they enhance my magic. Two of them in very powerful ways. The third is a link between the three of us.
Now going around my right wrist is a circle of small Viking axes. Guess what it does? It enhances my Evocation magic and boy I wasn’t expecting the change in the color of my flame but it is color is now bright blue with white. I checked my lightning and it is red instead of bright yellow and my frost has gone from pale blue to pure white.
On my left wrist is a circle of interlocked Viking shield like a shield wall. It’s cool because each shield is unique. It enhances my Abjuration magic. Yeah, my shields are even stronger and they also have changed color or should I say change colors – shimmer like a multicolored rainbow now.
If I hold my hands together then the two tattoos enhance each other is I am doing only one or the other of my types of magic. Makes fireballs even more spectacular and shields even harder. I just can’t do both types of magic at once when I do that.
The last tattoo is one all three of us received. Required a few drops of blood form each of us mixed into a potion that was then dabbed before dabbing the ink. Its three hearts interlocked in a triangle and all of us three are wearing them on our right shoulder blade. Each heart represents one of us. Lunette’s is fairy-like with purple and black strands interweaving. Amber’s is a red flaming heart much like her tramp stamp. I wasn’t sure what to put for mine but Sadi looked at me a moment and did one on paper and I smiled. The heart was made up of dark grey strands mixed with silver. Very cool.
Each one is unique as mine has my heart at the top and the two others interlocked below it. Lunette’s has hers at the top and mine and Amber’s bellow it and Amber, of course, has hers on top and mine and Lunette’s below it. The main effect is if I concentrate I know where both of them are even if they are out of sight. I also know what they are feeling, but that is unique to me as I am empathic. Lunette and Amber say they don’t feel anything.
We are back at the cabin now and the tattoo process was not as painful as I thought. Like getting scratched but all for a good cause. We need all the advantages we can get if the shit hits the fan.
Don’t have anything to say at this point other than I can’t wait to get my own first tattoo. I was hoping to write this chapter after I got my own so I could weave some of my feelings about it into this, but I may have simply rewrite it later.
