It took a week for the worst of the allergic reaction to wear off, it took over two weeks before my hands stopped shaking, and my throat has still not recovered.  I am never touching milk again.  Don’t look too close at the lines either, my hands were still shaking when I drew them.  It also didn’t help that this is one of the more complicated scenes with lots of people.

Anyways, a meeting like this is almost always only First Acolytes.  A First can bring their second-in-command if they feel it’s necessary, but it’s usually discouraged for space reasons, unless it’s a case of shared command.  Specialists are also on the short list of people allowed to attend.
