Mod R: The Question Fairy has visited the BDH 😁.
Yes, and apparently it’s all about Augustine.
::rolls up sleeves::
Why did you say Ruby Fever is terrible? I love this.
I didn’t say it was terrible to read, I said it’s terrible to write. It will read just like any other Hidden Legacy novel. We will make sure that’s it’s romantic, captivating, and funny. It’s just going to take 3 times the effort on our part.
Will we get to see any of Connor and Alessandro’s sparring?
You sure are a thirsty lot.
Could Augustine’s younger brother be a prospective love interest for Arabella?
No. He is 16 at the time of Ruby Fever.
How vulnerable are Augustine’s younger siblings that he is so protective of them?
Does Augustine’s younger brother switch places with him when he goes on missions?
How do Augustine illusions work on the other senses? How would an infrared camera or night vision goggles react? If someone were to hug Augustine, would they be able to tell he was actually much bigger/more muscular than he appears? Does his tailor know his real dimensions or does he illusion his clothes? Do the illusions affect only their person or can they be projected onto surroundings or other people?
O_O. Illusion magic is complicated. It doesn’t really matter how his appearance is recorded. As a Prime, Augustine doesn’t just change his physical appearance, he hexes the equipment. Meaning that a human looking at the recording is affected by Augustine’s magic. He can use this power or not use it. It’s optional. If you hugged him, you would perceive illusion proportions. His tailor makes clothes in a number of sizes, because it takes a bit of a burden off Augustine. The rest is a spoiler.
Does this mean Augustine has a high magic usage threshold because he maintains the same image every day, all day, unless he’s going undercover? He must burn through calories.
Yes, Augustine does have a high magic threshold, but it takes a surprisingly small amount of magic to maintain the illusion vs creating it.
Can he maintain his illusions during sleep? Is it one illusion for his whole appearance or a series of illusions, one for each part of his body? When his face blurs and Catalina sees his real eyes, is that just his face illusion failing, or did his real body get revealed too?
Me: I think we should pencil Augustine in somewhere in the next 3 years or so.
Gordon: What would it be about? Augustine, hard-boiled detective solving a case?
Yes, Augustine can maintain illusion during sleep. He spoiler spoiler spoiler.
I can’t tell you because there is an Illusion mage in Ruby Fever.
Does Augustine don his real face that no one knows when he goes undercover? How different is it from his assumed image?
What is the active and what is the passive field of an Illusion mage?
Differs from mage to mage, but in general changing shape is active, maintaining said shape is passive.
Is Augustine also a Psionic? In Burn for Me when he fights with Rogan in Nevada’s office she feels raw terror.
No. :sigh: I guess I can give you this one. Augustine is very adept at people. He understands emotions and he is very aware of the visual impact, which is why when he misses the mark with Connor and Nevada, it has a profound effect on him. In that office scene, he created an illusion of something that would cause most people to panic. How he does that is a spoiler.
Augustine’s HEA book please? “He is K-Drama hero worthy.” “It’s your fault for making your secondary characters so fully fleshed out and complex”
Will Augustine get paired with someone who is immune to his magic and sees right through his illusion? Someone who non-physical magic just rolls off of?
Will we finally find out all of Augustine’s story in RF? What does he really look like, what is he really capable of?
This is you.
I have to go work.
