A little faith?
I find it amazing how after finding out magic exists, seeing people come back from the dead (kind of) hearing people speak in her head, being healed and even teleported. And yet she questions the existance of auras after being told that they do for a fact exist. Obviously shes one of the types that doenst beleive anything till she sees it.
@Kiku-Goldenflower: I think that's just her fact-gathering mode going on autopilot after all the crazy near-death experiences that have been flying around, and eventually she's gonna ex-PLODE with emotion.
Par for the course. She knows magic and what not, but she wants details and probably has trouble with imagining. Lord knows I can't imagine completely random things, I have to have a solid groundwork to build up from.
Personally, it seems more like thats the issue. She might simply need to, say, read his body language or something to get his emotional information. Paradigms are important after all, and she is a reporter.
