Yeah, so you may have noticed some weird character encoding on the site recently. This appears to be a known wordpress 4.6.1 issue and I am looking into fixing it but the simple fixes don’t work and the alternative is… daunting.

“How many times do I need to tell you that I’m not here to fight? Not with you and not with her?” The woman gave Kira a look of exasperated forbearance when she didn’t budge. “I had hoped that it wouldn’t come to this but there’s not enough time to persuade you.” She made a gesture and an invisible force lifted Kira off her feet, gently pushed her against a nearby tree and held her there. Bands of ice wrapped around her and fastened her firmly to the trunk. Kira yelped and struggled futilely as the winged woman walked towards Ophelia. Read the rest of this entry »
“Well at least I managed to shatter that spar thing,” Ophelia said. “How long…” she trailed off without finishing the question but he knew what she was asking.
“Hmm… if we didn’t have this stopgap potion you’d only have a few hours. With it you probably have a day or two before it loses effectiveness and you lapse into a coma. I’d be amazed if we don’t have an antidote by then.” Read the rest of this entry »
