Touchy isn't she? As scared as Billy is bet he doesn't even notice she's Starkers. Hope that didn't startle Tirin too bad. Billy is really, really gonna owe Tirin for this.

Yeah, Billy, you have to touch the Lady in the Mirror like you mean it. You need to grow some, to get out of your lab more....

ohhh,, it would be funny,, billy can interact / see mirror(?name?),, where as granny can only talk to her.!!
Billy:; gah! your naked.!!
Mirror:: ? what? how??...

@rob: Billy:- I'm only touching you to see where it hurts
Mirror:- What? See what what hurts?
Billy:- When you fell from Heaven, it must have hurt when you landed

Billy:- I wouldn't be touching you, if you only let me through, I don't belong here, this isn't my trial
Lil Tir:- Hey!

Okay, now Mirror is angry :D

"Talk" and "Balk" are words that look like they should rhyme, but they usually don't
(or maybe it's just me the pronounces the 'elle' in "Balk")

Now it gets Really Real !
Hopefully Billy,doesn't screw up her concentration on matters at hand.

STOP Stop distracting Tirin!!!!

But that made me laugh. THANK You!

STOP STOP annoying the mirror. The mirror will decide the next challenge, stupid boy.

@Krulle, @rob, @Dragonrider, @EHines @agedsage: I was going to make him say "GAAH" again, but he's said that too much already. So "WAAH" seemed like a good alternative. He seems to be good at disrupting things (Tirin's concentration and the Mirror's private space). Let's hope he does more in the near future that will redeem his impetuous actions.

@Guesticus: I'm pretty sure balk (pronounced "bawk" or "baulk") does rhyme with talk (right?) Just wanted to play on old Daddy's wisdom --- imagine Tirin training, running through her excercises and old Dad spouting various words of wisdom to Tirin over and over again. Now in her first serious fight, she understands (or so she thinks).
Guesticus (Guest) October 23rd, 2016, 2:42 pm
@Merceneiress: Like said, personally pronounce them differently- "baulk" and "tawk", have never heard it pronounced "taulk"
Yeah, you never truly understand until you have to put what you have learnt in real practice, and 'play-fighting' (or training) never fully prepares you for the real thing

"EEYAAH!" is another good alternative
It's okay if you have Billy repeat himself, most people usually use the same exclamation when startled, unless you are Sydney Scoville Jnr, in which case what she says makes seasoned sailors blush :P

Radiwhill makes me think of Gollum from Lord of the Rings, and a ghoul in one. Very effective rendering! i love Tirin and Billy's expressions also. :D
For me talk and balk are perfectly acceptable as rhymes, I don't saw Tawk at all.
Guesticus (Guest) October 25th, 2016, 7:08 am
@Karyl: You pronounce the 'elle'?
To me, 'talk' rhymes with 'pork'
Karyl (Guest) October 26th, 2016, 6:09 am
@Guesticus: I do say the "l" but it's not pronounced sharply. At the same time it's definitely not a "w" or a "u". I had somewhat precise language exercises from my dad when i was a kid. :)I am a native Southern English speaker, and dad was serious about us not taking up a Southern accent without "ing" on the ends of words, etc. So we had practice exercises, which I can remember still today. :D

I seriously checked what balk means. Though it is wrongly written bark.
