It has almost a month since I started practicing with An'She's Shadow. While in some of my previous notes, I take note of my current ability. I feel as though I am ready to test on a humanoid subject that can display average intelligence. I make way back to the landing and for a humble sum of silver find a test subject in the City of Orgrimmar.
The test: First and foremost, I pay the subject the full amount upfront. While I do not know what actions may come out of this test as of yet, I want the subject to be as comfortable as possible. The testing area is set up as follows: One large room with a well lit beacon in the center, with the surrounding rim being shrouded in a thick darkness. The Subject makes way to the beacon, to which there is a chair set down for him. He may stand, sit, and even walk about so long as he does not leave the beacon of light. I myself hide in the outlying shadow, unseen to the subject. Yet I make my presence known when I enter the room. The following is notes I gathered from just over three hours of testing.
Hour one: The subject sits in his chair as I begin to focus in, trying to link out two minds. I strain my head quite a bit in this first hour, a intelligent subject is far more difficult than a wildlife beast or lobotomized forsaken. Yet I am able to push onward maintaining focus for the entirety of the test. Yet in the first hour, the subject seems unfazed. He has a appearance of sheer boredom.
Hour two: I begin to have an effect on his mind about half way through the second hour. While I am by no means able to affect his thoughts or assume any such control of him, he begins to show signs of discomfort. He sits in his chair and frequently scratches his neck and rubs his forehead with his hands. Also one should take note that he begins to sweat heavily.
Hour three: By this point he is clearly agitated. He begins to complain about migraines, and that he needs some sort of medicine or he will not be able to continue. He gets up from his chair and begins to pace back and forth, all the while holding both his hands to his forehead in discomfort. I am clearly having a negative affect on his brain, which while it seems like an awful feat, in unfortunately what we must refer to as progress.
Just past hour three: He begins to get angry and yell threats, if I am not mistaken I took note that his nose was bleeding from the right nostril. I fear this may be having a far too dangerous affect on the subject, and cease focus immediately, ending this phase of testing. I open the door and he hastily rushes out. I pay him a few extra silver pieces and fare so that he can make way to his home.
Personal notes: Upon finishing testing, I note that I too have a headache. I put a kettle on and acquire a humble meal of bread and cheese. I rest momentarily as the headache fades away. Overall, this test was a step in the right direction. Extreme progress was shown, and I feel I have become more at tune with these abilities because of this.
