Hm, well I suppose I could get my hours at the library turned over to weekends and the occasional evening. I need that job, you see, and not the money, the actual job. I'd hate to abandon the books to someone else.
But let's see: I'm only honestly afraid of a very few things, though I am healthily wary of a few others. Jack, I presume, is the other pirate? I'm quite good at ignoring things, provided the things I'm supposed to be ignoring are pointed out to me. Voodoo et al aren't on the list of things I'm afraid of, though I'll admit this is mostly because I haven't run across a lot of it. Though there are some who would call what I can do arcane magic. I've heard them. I've always had my own mind, ever since I learned to read, really, and I write my own endings.
