"Why am I here?" asks Judith.

"So you'll be safe from whatever's going on with the people who dropped the notes."

"I want to go meet them."

"- Michael, why only Judith -"

"No idea, John shoved her at me and gestured to be quiet."

Permalink

"...well that's not good."

"I want to go in the sky."

"Michael can take you in the sky later when it's safe."

Permalink

"The sky people might hurt you. They said in the note they would hurt people who hurt them and we don't know what they'd count as hurting them."

Permalink

"But I won't hurt them! I want to go in the sky!"

"Maybe John handed her over because he wasn't sure they could stop her from running off to grab one," murmurs Rebecca.

Permalink

- nod. "Well. We can ask the elves to keep an eye on her - what's the plan, do we have a plan -"

Permalink

"We make sure we have accurate information. If they're sticking to what they said, we let them do it, watch very carefully, figure out why they're leaving wizards alone, act only once we have full information. If they start mass murder - I don't know. We take a lot of Felix and coordinate something internationally."

"Should you lay groundwork for that now?"

Permalink

"Yeah probably. I want to check on Elio, he got suddenly sick and left."

Permalink

"...weird coincidence..."

Permalink

"Isn't it just. Gonna wait a bit to make sure international Portkeys are still allowed and not attracting unwanted attention and then I'll go find him."

Permalink

"Good luck."

He squeezes her hand.

 

 

 

He waits for signs of problems with international Portkeys.

Colorful aliens show up in places where the population seems least restive and start giving out instructions on how to build temporary housing and railroads and airports. They pay laborers in their own currency, which can be used to buy things at their stores. They are not impeding the operation of normal stores, at least not yet. 

 

They do not shoot people who show up as instructed for temporary housing. They do not shoot the people who hide, either, though they go through the targeted areas door-by-door in bizarre suits of a bizarre material, move people out, and then demolish things and bury the material and run a contained fire and then rebuild.

 

Some people attack them. These people are dragged away and don't reappear.

 

They give no indication they care at all about international Portkeys or in fact have heard of such a thing.

 

Timothy goes to Italy and finds Elio's organization.

Elio's organization is quite headless and confused.

Permalink

What's going on with Elio?

Permalink

He said he was sick and all operations were suspended and fucked off to no one knows where! says his minion staffer Erica.

Permalink

"Very odd timing. I think that while his original vision is - challenging given the current circumstances, the lines of communication he had with the entire magical world are going to be critical. It would make sense to maintain those even if operations specifically on the Statute were suspended, don't you think?"

Permalink

"We're hardly going to tell all the owls they should return to the wild, Signore."

Permalink

"Not what I meant. I mean, instead of cancelling meetings they could still happen with a different focus and a broader range of attendees."

Permalink

"Signore, I think it is premature to make decisions like that without Elio's input."

Permalink

"I think someone sabotaged Elio at a critical time, and that it'd be dishonoring the things he's accomplished to let it all grind to a halt until we're sure that's what he wants."

Permalink

"I think if Elio may have been sabotaged taking direction from anyone who wanders by and has ideas would be a very poor choice, Signore."

Permalink

"You know I've been working with him."

Permalink

"He works with many people, Signore."
