I'm not quite sure if this counts as things going back to normal, but I guess it's close enough to normal. It's almost a relief when we have Visitors' Days after the really bad curses-- I always wondered if that was a reward for getting through it, maybe, a way to keep us all from really going nuts.

I've never thought of myself as being stuck here, because... well, because it's home now, and I don't mind that... but I always like seeing old friends. And new ones.

So, welcome. I'm glad to see you all.

Hey. I hear the City's under new management?

You too, Neil.

What d'you think of them? The new guys?

Yeah, well. Things have to work out sometimes for some people.

Seems to be working for you. 'S why I like talking to you--you think things can be better than they are. Better than they'll probably be.

Takes more than that.

Did you read any Ibsen?

'S okay. Maybe next time.

I got through the Shakespeare play... Midsummer Night's Dream? It wasn't too bad. Thanks for that.

What about it makes it your favorite? Can't just be everyone going after the wrong people.

This influx is temporary? [ She'd been wondering why it was so swift and sudden. ]

That seems like a nice way to think about it. Is it always people you've met here, or ones from where you're from?

I was wondering how common it was. I haven't met anyone that I knew at home, but I figured that the chances were astronomically small, just based on averages.

Thanks. I'm trying to hope that no one does... It doesn't really feel like my home right now, and I wouldn't want anyone else to be here if they don't want to be. But it's hard. I'm sure you know.

Almost two months now. It's hard to believe it's been that long.

Every day is an adventure. Seriously. It's weird to say that in a non-sarcastic way.
