        Yes. Very yes. Would be so much fun to see Wolfe correcting Mal every time he tries to use his newly found linguistic skills.

        Though I guess English would be nice too, y’know, since all the adventures so far have taken place in English speaking territory.

    The wording of that contract must have been jolly interesting! o_o Any chance we’ll get to read it at some point?

    OTOH – was what O’Malley “signed” the contract with legally binding?

    • KomiIsDrawing

      Legally- Probably not. Magically- He made a mark that was his agreement. Whoops!

  • Whhhhhhhoops! But if you can magically sign a contract for someone else, can she just make up a contract and sign it on Miss Barber’s behalf for example? Maybe it’s because she gave both of them something in exchange– their freedom– and in accepting it Wolfe implied acceptance of the mark made on his behalf? But then if you could trick someone into like, accepting a snack from you and you’d written on a paper they were trading over their life to you if they accepted it that’d be highly dangerous.. maybe forces of magic recognize that the person has to have some connection or right to make decisions on the other person’s behalf? @.@ I’m probably over thinking it, but loving the progression of the story even so!
    Heheh, well, what’re you going to do -now-, Mal?

      I second this rambling question with as little effort as possible. *theme*

      He was able to sign for Wolfe because it’s the implied that he could, since they’re near-inseparable. A lot of how magic works bends emotion, intention, and honestly, narrative :P

      • Hehe, I fully understand. ; ) Though even then, in a world with all these spirits of feelings and emotions I can also totally get behind the idea that the bond between them is enough to validate the contract for magical purposes. After all, how many people promise away their first born or whatever in old stories and get held to it as far as magic creatures are concerned?

Sort of like stories where people promise away their first born or whatever as collateral in old stories and get held to it as far as magic creatures are concerned.
