Oh that makes a lot of sense.  The moment The Morgan saw the copies being made(she may have been summoned when Celia said her name)  she kept the information knowing it would be useful but the men in white used it to make her replacement and that would tick her off.  I already knew Toby was small for his age but it may be that the half of him Celia has is the more fae and isn't ageing much so the human half is getting all of it.

Also Toby seems to have a very sunny disposition, I wonder if Toby 2 has all of his dark moods.  In magic both phrases could have a direct meaning.  Also Toby is impulsive and compassionate, Toby 2 may well be a control freak.

From what I've seen Celia has very little Ego about what she does and doesn't expect people to crawl to her.  Celia 2 seems to need a lot of confirmation of her status.  What they have in common is the mother bear attitude.

Beety is sure they need to merge or die.

"Beety kept quiet as she watched Celia, the appalling strain she was under could crack London.  It wasn't as simple as the Captain's dilemma, Celia had to be in range of her doppelganger before they both died but when they were that close the distortions in the magic resonance could build to catastrophic proportions before either had a chance of winning. Only the fact that Beety had given her word to Celia's grandmother prevented her from dissolving into panic knowing how weak her own magic was compared to what they faced.  Her one comfort was the fact that she had taught Celia how to bluff extremely well."

"Beety was sharply reminded of a group of elves that had created the one perfect moment and stayed in it.  They had been horrifyingly grateful when she made it possible for them to escape into death.  She really didn't want anyone ever to be trapped like that again but the crowned "Celia" and the "King" in white and gold were starting the long preparation for exactly that sort of spell. 
"Celia think of Toby, whatever they try think of Toby as you know him with all his faults and all his future before him."

That makes even more sense if Toby 2 is ageing rapidly and Celia 2 wants to complete the spell to prevent his death.

Yes the rapid ageing would worry Celia very much.  She is going to have a very long life and the thought of her baby fading away would bother her a lot. Toby lets Celia baby him but Toby 2 would most likely be a moody teenager who won't even let her hug him.  The control freak thing fits too.

Knowing how many teenagers hate seeing their baby pictures Toby 2 may be horribly embarrassed by Toby.  You could have fun with that as well.

What caused the spit could be an old thieves trap meant to take the soul of a thief and hold it until the merchandise can be returned only it wasn't meant to deal with people that are a bit more than human.  Since she was not stopped the goblins would have most likely think she got away with it until the found the doubles wandering about.

I wonder if Celia herself is one of the magic circles binding Morgan.  She did say that being bound to some of the circles was done voluntarily and taking on the debt instead of getting instant justice was something she did to have Celia owe her.

That sounds cool.   Sorry I was out of pocket so long and not chipping in.    I am going to be spotty for a bit.   Taking a fire assignment and will be traveling for a couple weeks. 

I hope to check in and participate each evening.   If I see that I can't I will write Reid into another abduction or something.

Not only dont I mind, but I would invite you to make minor movements and input for me if it helps the big story.

Keep me dry, humble, hopefully competent, and always...... always...... blunt.    And I do not mind taking the occasional pratfall for the humor and fun of the story.  Just keep me "good at what I do" please.

Will do. Also I think it will be helpful for us to have a tracker through the tricky goblin streets.

I see no reason to make this the grand finale.   we had talked about there being several different magic focal points.   I know we put forth that without the main one at the tower, now they had to make use of several others together, but what if each of the remaining 5 have the potential to wreak havoc?

Then we could deal with this one, the bad guys flee at the last moment (hopefully we win LOL)  and it's off to the next one. 

We could keep the story running a while, and maybe some of our other players will have the chance to rejoin us.   

I am hoping Mallard returns soon.

Yes this has grown quite a bit.  I see no reason now that we know where things are headed to braking each ring like a chapter in a book. I admit when i started this it was going to be a simple theft of the crown jewels useing the raven to disrupt their magical protection but it has grown so much from that that the episodes will need to be much bigger to hold it all.

Such is the way of writing, this is yet another example of the characters running away with the authors story!

And since each of us is an author there are more directions for the characters to go.

I was wondering if Inkpot, as the Clockwarden, would be able to keep the streets from moving quite so much (not stop them, as that would probably cause a major disruption), but to do so, he perhaps needs to get to the Golden Tower, as that's where the Vortex Clock is hidden (perhaps it's even the reason the tower keeps moving, as the major eddy in time that the clock regulates could be the sort that moves, like an eccentric eddy in a river bend, for example - which might also explain why the streets keep moving, admn why one has to concentrate on a point other than one's destination, which like the Market finds one instead of one finding it. Assuming I've got the logic nailed down correctly, that is.

I know it's own magic is fighting Celia 2 and only the iron of Toby 2 sword is keeping them from get horribly lost. But I am not sure why.

Just an idea: A spinning set of magnets (such as those in an electric motor) inside of an armature creates an electromagnetic field; a motor made to spin really fast without current input will itself superconduct, that is to say, produce current, once it begins spinning fast enough. That might/could perhaps be what the vortex clocks are: clockwork superconductors that create magnetic/magical fields that act as governance devices to control the temporal tidal forces exerted by the eddies (vortices) in time that the city rests upon (?). Perhaps the sword is attracted to the tower, or perturbs the tower's clock's field somehow (?). Kind of a stretch, but it seems plausible to me.

Toby2's Sword - Is it not some arcane alloy rune engraved relic of "Old Camelot" that acts as an anchor for time eddies?

It very well could be and he may not know all it can do.  If it would make him too much of a handful for the men in white they would have neglected to tell him it did much more than kill things.

Question If the sword responds to a true descendant of Arthur should it be Reid that breaks the spell?
