There is a reason that the search for immortality is forbidden, but Mindy was never one for listen to reason. It also doesn’t help when your girlfriend is paranoid and has access to a lot restricted books, and you recently had a bad accident.
A botched spell later Mindy isn’t quite immortal, but she can’t quite die either. Half life has it perks, when her heart stops to beat she loses her normal limits and becomes inhumanly strong. (A good thing for a professional magical bodyguard) Magic holds her body together, so she just has to put a severed limb back in place. (She also doesn’t has to sleep, eat, or breath when ‘dead’)
Going back to normal is a little harder, but she can heal and go back to being fully alive if she consumes magic. The more damage that is done the greater amount of magic that needs to be consumed.
Together they start a curse/spell removal agency. For the money, and access to magic for Mindy to eat when she gets too injured. Mindy is the muscle and legwork, and her girlfriend is the expert in magic.
(Little idea I have had in my head for a while, kind of a necromancer and undead romance… sorta. I just used a character design I made ages ago for this.)
It’s not easy being the Protector Queen, with the safety of the whole Queendom on her shoulders. Usually the daily stresses of being a Queen don’t get Florencia down, but the memories of the past, and names of those that have been lost, will sometimes overwhelm the survivors.
There isn’t a single citizen of the Queendom who hasn’t suffered loss. A hazard of living in an a post apocalyptic world.
Drawing is my life and I honestly hope to be able to do something with it eventually but for now I just draw in my spare time. I'm a bit of a hermit, but mostly because I'm shy, or busy drawing. I'm easily intimitatied by artist who are younger then me and much better, but I try to improve and not dwell on it TOO much.
