Oscillations

Post by Qingying » Mon Jan 22, 2018 12:25 am

A couple of days after arriving at Brandt’s house, Qingying and Laurie had half an hour alone in the afternoon. They were in the room Laurie was staying in; Qingying sitting on the bed, and Laurie on a chair.

“Can you tell me more about Mahra’s abilities?” Qingying asked. “And what he’s affected by?”

Laurie blinked up at him. "That's a pretty broad question. What kind of things are you looking for?"

"You saw him in a very controlled environment, likely medicated or otherwise, and around someone he explicitly trusts. Take those things away and Mahra can't, he can't function like normal people. He can't filter out what he perceives, he can't stop himself from influencing people. When others are angry or abusive to us, we feel it strongly. To Mahra they're, they change him, his mind, his feelings. He has outbursts, he'll spend hours on end freaking."

Laurie nodded. "The older he's gotten, the worse he's gotten. I think it's because the older he gets, the more his powers grow. Veela hybrids carry a greater risk of mental instability."

He appeared thoughtful.
“And outbursts?”

"Manage what? His abilities? Yeah, he can, sometimes. When, when, uh, when it's necessary. Not usually."

Laurie balanced his elbows on his knees, feet planted on the floor. "Survival. Same as me."

“Oh, rather than ‘focus it’, I more meant – being affected by others, or affecting other people. Mentally.”

“Hmm.” He tilted his head.
“I want to… try to make it so that he can come out for… trips with us.”

“It… makes you tired, right?” Tired wasn’t exactly the case. “And would it depend on how long he comes out? What if we go and stay somewhere during a holiday?”

"Nah. If there's people around, it'll affect him regardless, but that would be nice," Laurie murmured. "And he's my brother. It doesn't matter if it makes me tired."

“Does it make him uncomfortable, being affected by people? People going about their daily lives, or talking to him – for example, someone he comes across, or people around him?”

"No," Laurie smiled. "Mahra loves people. They can just overwhelm him. It's when people's emotions are focused on him personally that things can get dicey."

“Does this include emotions that are not like anger? What if he’s in a crowd of people? Crowd of extremely excited and happy people at a music festival?”

“Hmm.
Do you think, there is a chance, that he can gradually learn to… prevent other people from affecting him as much?”
