Flux can repare it !
So either she is much, much much more than she seem, or the painting are relatively mundane.
In the second case, amical anger is due to vanity, or shock that a seedling would act in such a way.

Also, nobody discovered Hizrim, is it because the thing is capable and actively hiding? and they dont expect it, or are they just distracted?

I think that they are mundane, but even then they can serve as conduits for sympathic connection - it would be Intimate for Amical. Also, he's a vain son of a gun with probably Wisdom 1, so he sees murder as a good solution to such problems.

@Viridian: Murder is the only solution to troublemakers, we all know that.

I dont know much about your system, but what about curses or permanent mind control (not domination, but something forcing the subject to do or avoid a precise situation)

Or 're education'

There are lenty of bad solution to troublemaker

@W.: Haha you're totally correct, there's lots of ways to deal with them. I was making a joke there. It tends to be hard to convey tone with just text so I'm sorry if I sounded serious!

@Viridian: would it be possible that they were some form of horcrux or magical protection, but because of billy's outburst, whatever it was enchanted with is now removed? almost like a "cleansing fire" type spell? flux did mention that she wouldn't be able to repair it completely...

@kidthegreat: You know, that's a great idea. If that wasn't a plot idea already I'd bet it is now.

Also, wow! Whole BillyGhost AU I inspired there. Neat.

@Don Quixotes: Thanks for the inspiration! It was so fun to make a story with!

@Don Quixotes: I kinda have a feeling that Amical wasn't always that vain. maybe hes just really paranoid about something. The way he flipped out about the painting made me think that somehow they were important. Plus, with the fact that there are very few enemies that he has, that amical also has a fear/hatred of death mages, and the fact that the vandal intentionally defaced 3 of his paintings, I came up with a theory. Earlier in his life, Amical must've pissed off a death mage. That mage cursed him in a Dorian Grey or Voldemort-esque with the paintings, and now he has to hide away and defend them, or else he will die. So now, he puts on the front so that he doesn't offend anyone else, and tries to keep people from being angry with him so he doesnt get killed. He hired Flux, Rick and Malloy essentially as additional bodyguards and personal trainers and assistants to help him hide and to train the seedlings and become stronger himself. Now he trains the seedlings so that they will like him and so that they won't be aggressive towards him, and so that they would help him, in case one of his enemies happens to find him and try to kill him.

Still trying to figure out /why/ Billy did that.

Also, where is this Ghost!Billy AU stuff? I need to read this.

@shylarah: I think 50% of all of Billy's show is people watching going "Why would you DO that?!"

Ghost!Billy AU idea: al-still

Annnd the drabble I did for it along with Alexis art: hy-do

@shylarah: I kinda thought it might be Hizrim's attempt to silence him permanently— amp up or possess the target and try to get him killed . . . and he would have gotten away with it too, if it weren't for that meddling Acanthus...
Though unexpectedly it actually worked out for Billy.

And I expect Amical wants to be in the studio audience at Billy's next match- after all, he DID say "Let's Make a Deal."

@burningtyger: Yeah, I thought it might have been Hizrim's doing too, but I'm not sure. But I don't see why Amical thought this was him wanting to leave. It doesn't seem to connect.

@shylarah: Well, let's see— Billy's a well-known enfant terrible; how better to show his displeasure and irritation at being trapped here than throw a fit and break (or rather burn) something?
