*siiiigh* I mind-raped my Auth. Av. and I need to make 'em sane again:
First Then So then Time for the meat Verity can't handle it, and is literally just a few thoughts away from becoming a shrieking pile of fetal position. My plan is for hir and Tamara (who is only handling herself somewhat better due to shorter exposure and her training as a telepath, though she'll degenerate to fetal position in enough time without intervention) to get the help they need to bring themselves back to a point somewhat resembling normal. The only idea I've had so far is of having 3 or 4 high-powered 'paths go through a joint effort to fix them...but I'm not sure HOW the actual repair process could possibly go. Any suggestions on how the mind healing can happen (no "magic" though, since their problem is neurological, requires precision, and magic, especially at Whateley, is pretty messy even when used FOR neatness) via telepaths (or even plain ol' medicine), perhaps in a believable enough manner that it could even be duplicated in other stories about telepaths where a similar malady might occur that needs healing, would be helpful. Thank you in advance for any suggestions.

THIS is why it's great to run ideas by people, because it turns out I wrote something before it that actually sets up PERFECTLY for this scenario! BOOM, there it is right there—reconstruct V and Tami's psyches using their friends! THANK YOU very much. Also, thanks to KC for the sensible mystical suggestion, and Sand for dropping some common sense on my scrambled eggs-for-brains.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
