There's a bit of your blood on the blade after the deed is done. Meerlinda gestures for the knife, and after she gets it wipes the blood onto the eye directly in front of you. She then gives the remaining three participants an inquiring look as to who's next.

Francois holds his hand out for the knife. Forcing a small smile to his face, he drags it across his forehead.

OK, then once Meerlinda has the blade back again, she coats the eye before François with his blood. Two down, two to go.

Jocelin holds out her hand for the knife without saying anything

Meerlinda hands the knife to you in silence. After you make your incision, presumably also in silence, Meerlinda wipes the blade on your donor eye. In silence.

Through the eye removal procedure Leo looks perturbed, but tries to remain composed.

When it's his turn to cut he grabs the knife, and makes the incision quickly to get the process over with.

Once Leo's vitae is on the final eye, Meerlinda gestures for Rebekka and Anneke to guide Gwynnis to her. You see that the Justicar has donned her childe's sunglasses, and Anneke's glass eye glitters in the faint, shimmering illumination from the protective dome above you. When she is guided to the Councilor's side, Gwynnis holds out her right hand, and Meerlinda places the knife's hilt on the Justicar's palm. Gwynnis reaches over with her empty hand and grasps the blade, leaving a red smear behind as she slides her hand back off the knife.

Meerlinda wafts each small bowl to her hand in turn, placing it beneath Gwynnis's bloodied palm. A few drops of her blood fall upon each of her eyes, and soon the bowls are back where they started, now laden both with an eye and your blood mingled with the Justicar's. Gwynnis licks the knife clean and hands it back to Meerlinda, who closes her eyes for a moment once she holds the knife again, evidently centering herself for whatever comes next.

The Councilor's eyes open suddenly, and she thrusts her tongue, curled upward, out of her mouth. She deftly slices through the small fold of skin beneath it, then grips the end of her tongue and pulls it out as far as she can. You watch in horrified fascination as she severs a segment of her tongue nearly the length of her hand from out her mouth.

With eerie calmness Meerlinda calls the slate block that held the now-extinguished brazier before her. She lops off the tip of her tongue and then quarters the remainder on the block, which floats at table height with no apparent support. She smears one of the tongue quarters on each eye, which seems to absorb both flesh and blood once the tongue makes contact.

This task done, Meerlinda raises each eye one by one level with your forehead before inserting the eye into your incision. The eyes move as surely and as firmly as if the Councilor held them throughout the insertion procedure. There seems to be hardly any resistance at all as the eye moves completely within your body. An brief flash of vertigo comes upon you, and then you can feel the potency of your vitae increase as your disorientation subsides. Gwynnis leans heavily on Anneke as the eyes integrate with their new hosts.

"The ritual is complete," Rebekka says, and Meerlinda nods in affirmation at this statement. "There is always something new to learn, it seems."

"What happened there at the end?" Gwynnis asks.

"I'll tell you later," Anneke replies, looking askance at Meerlinda as she speaks.

"How do you feel?" Rebekka asks you.

How do we feel? Any different (minus the vertigo)?
