This is just what we need. Mariella and Patrice have decided to go ahead with their documentary, and now everyone is going to find out about the inner workings of our coven. We’ve all told them time and time again that we’re not on board with it, and don’t want to be involved in any way, shape or form – including the ones that we take on the new moon. Especially not those forms, actually.
I know what you’re thinking. Why don’t we simply refuse to let any cameras in? It doesn’t seem like it would be that hard, given that there’s only one entry to Miranda’s back shed, where we hold our circle. The thing is, we put a charm on the walls that enables any of us to see through them, and that apparently includes through a video camera.
Patrice has managed to hire some cameras from a video production company based in Melbourne, and it seems that as long as it’s either her or Mariella operating them, they will record straight into the shed as though the walls didn’t exist. Let’s just say that if I’d known that was part of the charm, I’d never have agreed to do it! It wasn’t listed as a side effect in the grimoire, but then it was written in the 1500s so no surprises there.
Anyway, we can’t very well stop Patrice and Mariella from hiring the equipment without outing ourselves in the process. At this point, the best we can hope for at this point is to ensure that the camera company doesn’t provide them with any post production services. I’m not sure how we’ll do that, exactly, but if we can pull it off, then they’ll just have a bunch of unedited raw footage rather than a finished documentary.
That’s hardly ideal, but it makes it that much less likely that anyone will end up watching it. I suppose Mariella could use that fancy computer of hers to mash it up into something that could possibly pass as arty, but then no one will take it as fact, which gets us all off the hook.
