Everything went well for the wedding, Goddess be praised. No small thanks to everyone else who helped pull things off. I still owe DJ quite a bit for her last-minute chain working...maybe a complimentary suit of armor, when I can get back to the forge? That won't be for a good while, but at least it will give me time to design something fitting.
I've noticed a strange magical flux, in town. It's not city-wide, and it's only really noticeable until I turn to pinpoint it, but it's there. Something is shifting, more than usual for the waning of the year. It's hard to pinpoint, and the last I knew all our timeline-hopping experts had either gone to our California branch office or had entered their own practice. Mr. Deringer would be an excellent consultant, but getting hold of him possesses its own...unique challenges. With Alexia away on her honeymoon, I'm hesitant to go digging on my own for anything short of an emergency. And I don't believe this flux is an emergency.
I could be wrong, though. I'm not even sure it's at all timey-wimey. But scrying reveals nothing, and the Goddess is silent when I try to speak to Her. It could just be the girls mucking around with my perception--hormones are a great way to blind yourself to the outside forces. I'm leery about consulting with Fae, but I seem to recall one of ours who's gone into private practice knows someone with connections. I'd consider speaking with Maemir, but she was about as useful as a pen-knife in quicksand the last time I requested her aid, so perhaps it's best to leave her be. Besides, I've other projects to attend to...projects that may or may not require my immediate attention.
Simply, we may or may not have another ghost in the building. This one seems to be a mimic of Carrie. It's sounding less and less like a ghost, though a spirit wouldn't surprise me--we've had quite a few running around here. Lucretzia would be an excellent consultant for that, though Lucas seems to already have his own suspicions. DJ seems to suspect something different, but she's keeping her suspicions to herself for now--though she stopped by to run over a catalogue she thought I'd like. What I'm more interested to know is why a spirit would target Carrie. That's a rather interesting choice. The memory fragments in her mind make sense, but this sounds like something completely outside herself. I'll need to talk with Lucas regarding this case.
