Transmutation is defined as the process by which one object is transformed into another, or more specifically one substance is transformed into another. The word has a particular connotation regarding the use of either magical or alchemical means. The study of alchemy, as far as most people are aware, was the pursuit of would-be sorcerers, crackpots and con men attempting to change lead or other base materials into gold.

Wesley is off his (more extended than intended) hiatus. The mun apologizes for the long delay and thanks the mods at [ profile] theatrical_muse for their patience and understanding.
prodigalwatcher: (Not Fade Away)
I am placing this journal on hiatus due to continuing unforeseen difficulties.

Thank you for your understanding.

323 - Right and Wrong

It was a pattern I began noticing while still at the Watchers Academy, an observation that has more than been borne out by my experiences since coming to the States and the years that have followed. While doing research, as I was almost continually doing research in those days, I began to observe a certain similarity amongst the known effects of certain artifacts of demonic or otherwise supernatural origin.

319 - Friday

I became aware of the phenomenon of "date night" not long after I first arrived in Sunnydale. It was my first week in the States and I was determined to establish myself as an authority figure for both Buffy and Faith and, I suppose, make good on the trust that the Council had shown in giving me the assignment. With all the group gathered in the library, I began mapping out a training schedule for the Slayers and when I got to Friday nights, the idea was met with outright disgust. Giles, of course, had seen the training plan and had neglected to mention this possibility to me.

316 - What were you doing ten years ago?

Ten years ago, someone tried to tell me the future. I didn't listen. Perhaps it's for the best I didn't.

313 - Write about something old, something new, or something borrowed.

There are dozens of new things around my apartment these days, although if I were to be strict about the definitions of things they would not be so much new as, I suppose, newly noticed.

143 - "I must go forth alone, without knowing how."

With one hand on the door handle, I could still turn around. At least, that's what a very small, very quiet voice in the back of my mind is insisting. It tells me that I have not yet gone too far, that I have not strayed into the realm where what I've already done could go unforgiven. These are my friends. No, they are more than that: this is my family.

Rubicon )

prodigalwatcher: (Watcher | Doing Research)
304 - What are you hiding from?

Real work, some might argue.

Make no mistake that I consider my current line of engagement to be a most worthwhile and meaningful endeavour. Certainly there would be no room and no need for any of the more every-day and commonplace occupations of the world if there was indeed no world in which they might exist. The supernatural forces of evil are a threat to every living person, and so to stand in the way of them is to serve, in a fashion, everyone.

But it is not, clearly, a regular job. While I do pay taxes, my income is irregular in its schedule and with upsetting frequency, falls near or below the line of a living wage. I am provided none of the customary benefits, such as medical insurance or retirement investments, have no company car and pay for every one of my own meals, whether on the clock or not. I may be called upon to practice my craft at any hour of any day like a physician yet am afforded no special placard to prevent my car from being towed for double parking.

On occasion, in the execution of my work, I have been called upon to impersonate someone with a "real job", most often to gain entrance into a particular location or to engender the trust of someone with information I require. It is an unusual experience, sometimes refreshing in relieving the stresses-- for however brief a time-- of my unusual pursuits. And sometimes, it is illuminating, giving me a reminder of why I should feel confident that I was never destined to sit behind a desk for an hourly wage.

All in all, I am quite sure that I would not be able to hold down everyday employment. While my temperament is generally studious and naturally detail-oriented, I am afraid that I've grown far too accustomed to the odd, the unusual and the arcane to be satisfied with a commonplace job.

301 - Wake up.

First oblivion, then existence. I knew at once what had happened, and I had a single reaction:


The person-- no, it wasn't a person in the least, in point of fact, but a visible manifestation of the Senior Partners' wishes to communicate with their employees. The manifestation standing before me pursed its meticulously coloured lips in a bemused, condescending expression that I knew far too well.

"Now Wesley, you know it just isn't good form to talk about your former-- and, as it turns out, current-- employers like that."

297 - Crushed

"So. It is a game of war."

Ilyria's tone, as it was in the instances when it was not imperiously dismissive, was instead disdainfully matter-of-fact. Wesley, somehow, had grown used to the casual arrogance and did not rise to it. Instead, he replied with equal objectivity.

"You are correct. Legend has it that a Prince of ancient India created the game in order to explain to his mother the Queen the tactics that had resulted in his brother's death."

131 - "Dignity. Always, dignity." - 'Singin' in the Rain'

It is not easy to keep one's chin up and one's upper lip quite stiff when laying on a wheeled ambulance gurney with an oxygen mask strapped to one's face. However, as I recall the incident, I believe I was doing an admirable job of both. My friend and colleague Rupert Giles may very well remember the time differently, but I believe my report to be quite accurate.

After as spectacular an end to the battle with as massive and powerful a demonic creature as the one calling itself Mayor Richard Wilkins, the fact that there were only a handful of fatalities, a few dozen casualties and that the sole victim of property damage was the Sunnydale High School facility, caused the forces of good to be counting ourselves quite fortunate. I, unfortunately, was not able to consider myself as fortunate as most, though, as I was one of those injured in the melee.

I was-- in a tactical coincidence I know look back on as amusing, considering where life would eventually take me-- assigned to the group under Angel's command. Our mission was to provide support for the forces that would directly engage the Mayor-turned-monster by taking on the small legion of vampire henchman that Wilkins employed.

Naturally, as a Watcher, I was in the vanguard of this detachment, and was one of the very first to clash with a vampire. As was statistically probable, this then resulted in my being one of the first to receive an injury in the line of duty. Unfortunately, it was a grave enough hurt to take me out of the rest of the battle, a fight that the others carried on well.

Later, as I was being tended to by Sunnydale EMTs, Giles came by to debrief me on my part in the fighting. I could tell that he was surely holding back something, no doubt expressions of concern and sympathy. Like myself, he is both a Watcher and a British gentleman and as such, er, such things are not our way.

He did, however, assist me in obtaining proper pain relief for my injuries, for which I am grateful.

293 - Talk about a news item.

There are problems with forming a detective agency that does not engage in any of the traditional sorts of cases: domestic disputes, divorces, the vetting of potential employees, et cetera. Chief among these problems is the irregularity of clients-- paying clients in particular. On the right side of the war or not, even we lowly foot soldiers must eat and keep roofs over our heads, and gratitude does not pay rent.

I gave her a weapon.

287 - Prison

It takes, traffic permitting (which is always a most appropriate and irritating turn of phrase here in Southern California), approximately five to six hours to drive from Los Angeles to Stockton, which is located not so very far away from San Francisco. In point of fact, there is a very real and very proudly maintained delineation between the two halves of the state, and two very different geographic personalities. That difference is not taking into account, naturally, how much the Los Angeles area differed from the rest of the world on the day I made the trip.
