I'm just going to come out and ask this. How is everyone else not awed by the fact that there are gods - literal gods - on the station with us?

I have worshipped at many altars, and the way I came to understand it was that the gods were beyond us and that when I prayed on the eve of battle, the Lady of War did not mind if I called to her as Inanna or as Venus or Freyja or Saint Joan. The same with all the other gods and goddesses in their own domains.

Now I hear that Thor and Loki are here. Does that mean that countless other peoples were wrong, and the Norsemen right?

In the village of Privkat, before the dark times, the elders would teach the young people about magic. They learned how to shape it, and how to use it. By the time I arrived there, the practice had stopped. The magic we learnt was in secret, and was limited, and then there was none at all. I missed this part of learning. I see that there are many here with many types of magic.

This is what I propose. Once every seven days, on your Sunday for felicity, at [big open space on the station] we will gather and at least one among our number will tell the others about their magic. We will sit in a great circle and listen, as we would in Privkat.

Who is willing to take a turn? You do not have to be an elder, and it does not matter if nobody else here has the same talents that you do. You can demonstrate something practical and teach it to others who can learn, or you can tell us about the origins of your magic and how it works, or tell us about the history of your people and what magic has meant to them.

Everyone is welcome to join us and to listen, so long as they are respectful of others.

If you would like to speak more than once, and teach us different things, you can. If you would like a regular time to teach, you can have that. If you are interested, please tell me your name and each topic you would like to share with us, and I will organise the meetings accordingly.
