Draigh and Ardith Interview
Good morning! I'm Sabrina Michaels, Paranormal News Network. Today, I'm really excited to be interviewing the two people who are going to save the world from being overrun by horrible, nasty zombies. And with the possibility that the apocalypse might be coming any day now, Ardith and Draigh may turn out to be good people to know. How are you two today?
Ardith: Great, awesome really.
Draigh: I'm fine. I'd be better if I were out doing my job. That witch is creating more zombies for her army as we speak.
Oh, okay we'll talk fast. First off, can you tell me about your two organizations. You're both witches of a sort, is that correct?
Ardith: I'm an Epoch Mage, actually. We're able to travel through time to manage magical situations.
How exciting. The Epoch Council was started right after the Salem Witch Trials, right?
Ardith: Yes. Our job is to make sure nothing like that mess ever happens again. When someone steps out of line we bring them in and put them on trial in front of the council.
I see. How about you, Draigh? You're a Sorcerer?
Draigh: I'm a Sorceri Bounty Hunter. We hunt down magic users who break the law and take care of them.
Um, when you say take care of them you mean…?
Ardith: They kill them. Ruthlessly. Like animals. No questions asked.
Draigh: Shut up woman! You have no idea.
I take it you two often find yourselves at odds.
Draigh: Obviously you have an advanced degree in understatement.
What exactly is the problem between you two…I mean…erm…your two organizations?
Ardith: It's simple. Epoch Mages believe everyone has a right to have their side of the story heard. The Sorceri believe everybody has a right to do things the Sorceri way, or die.
The two women look at Draigh. He shrugs.
Draigh: I actually agree with the witch on that one. Except I'd add that the Epochs are incredibly naïve and hopelessly inefficient.
How about the two of you? I'm sensing real tension between you. Can you tell me why you dislike each other so much?
Ardith: How much time do you have? The man's a beast. He's massive and bulging and overbearing…
Draigh: She dresses like a whore and she's bossy…
Ardith: As you can see, he's uppity and judgmental…
Draigh: She thinks she knows everything…
Ardith: He doesn't listen…
Draigh: She charges blindly into situations with no care at all for her own safety…
Ardith: He hogs the shower…
Everybody blinks…Ardith's face turns red…Draigh shifts in his chair.
Alrighty then… So what's next on the docket after you two finish this job? Will the Epoch Council and the Sorceries Authority work together again?
Ardith: Doubtful. We really don't work together very well.
Draigh: Grunts, nodding.
What makes this assignment special? Why did the powers that be decide you needed to work together on this one?
Draigh: Because this rogue witch is dealing in death magic and she needs to be stopped.
Ardith: Apparently many Hunters and Mages before us have tried to capture her. Nobody has been able to do it.
Draigh: She's a tricky bitch.
So your bosses must think highly of you…to give you a job nobody else could accomplish?
Draigh: I think they're just running out of suckers.
Okay, well good luck in your search for the rogue. I really hope you get her. I don't relish having the world overrun by zombies. (Shudders.)
Ardith: I'll get her. Don't worry.
Draigh: You'll get her? Come on witch, you can't even enter a lust bar without starting a brawl.
Ardith: Ha! At least I'm not afraid of heights like a sissy girl!
Draigh: Scowls. Maybe not, but you are afraid of being underground aren't you? You get all clammy and twitchy like a hell hound in a church if your feet even sink a few inches into the ground.
Ardith: You're an ass!
Draigh: Cold hearted, skank dressing…
Sounds to me like you're a perfect match…
Ardith and Draigh: Shut up!
(Flinches.) Until next week, I'm Sabrina Michaels, Paranormal News Network. We scribe, you decide! Have a good one everybody!
