Are there many reasonable stabby humans?

Gray considered the argument for discontinuing lessons for the break. “Hm, fair – though if they’re going to explode things anyway, it might be better to have them where you can watch them instead of wandering wherever they want all over the Gardens – or in the library.” Explosions in the library would be very bad. The type who were apt to explode things probably did not have an enormous amount of overlap with regular library patrons, but…explosions in the library would be very bad.

He was surprised by the frank admission of missing family and routines – ‘gutted’ was a strong word. He had missed going home to see his mother and father, and his cousins and friends and former colleagues and et cetera, but he wasn’t sure he would use the word gutted - rather harsh vowels there, contained emotional overtones that the simple ‘missed’ didn’t carry. No, he didn’t think he’d go for something that strong – his own life wasn’t something to use harsh vowels over.

Reading a lot, however, was a good way to pass the time, and one he had used as well during midterm, and so he nodded agreeably to that statement. “I was reading a lot, too, yeah – reading and writing.” He didn’t realize, at once, that he had just mentioned that he scribbled to another human. “I was mostly in my own books - Do you read out of the main library much?” he asked curiously. The library was not entirely devoid of titles interesting to (mature, non-Gray-like) adults, but it was aimed at students, and also it amused Gray to think of the librarian having an ultra-secret stash behind wards sealed with his own blood or the like.

              Gray preferred not to admit it, but he was secretly glad to hear someone else agree that learning a new alphabet was a reasonable place to draw the line. “I have figured out one thing about it, just... more
