"I..."

Incoherent sobbing.

 

"...don't, don't make me tell you. Please. I, I know that's not ... please, please, kill me here like this, I don't mind, if you'll just hold me I don't mind, let me die with you not..."

Nothing past there is intelligible.

Squeeze, squeeze. "Okay, I won't. I won't make you tell me. I won't kill you."

Permalink

"I don't mind if you do," he insists, earnestly.

Permalink

 

"What? No! That... why would you even say that?"

Permalink

"--because it's true -- I won't lie to you, I swear it--"

Permalink

Cling. "I don't want to kill you. I don't."

Permalink

He's shaking to pieces more than crying, now, clinging to Felix like he's afraid of falling.

Permalink

Cling. Cling.

Then suddenly. "We should go to Milliways, open a door to your world and then close it. There is a time pausing effect."

Permalink

He isn't so much managing words, but he nods.

Permalink

Felix takes them to the portal to Milliways and then to the main door. The place does look an awful lot like a regular pub, except for that thing over there.

"Just open the door and close it. I'm not sure if just being here will do it, but that definitely should do it."

Permalink

He does that. (Clingily.)

Permalink

Felix teleports them back home. This time to their bed.

Permalink

Beds are a good place for crying on Felix.

Permalink

Felix will remain snuggly.

He will also contact Fenris.

Permalink

Who contacts Zari and explains the whole thing.

Permalink

"...um. Wow. What ... do you know what happened to him? .... He has a me, right?"

Permalink

"Felix didn't get that much out of him. The Jean was too emotional. Felix thinks that the fact that yours vanished around the same time and given that this one showed up right next to Felix and Feranno, it's a strong indicator that it wasn't just a coincidence and maybe they swapped universes."

Permalink

"...which implies that my brother is in whatever situation left his alt like this."

Permalink

"Yup. Felix had the foresight to get this Jean to open and close the door to his world so time stays paused there."

Permalink

Sigh. "Okay. Not urgent, then, I suppose. Thank you."

Permalink

"You're welcome. Anything else you think we should do?"

Permalink

"Find out if he has a me -- or someone equivalent -- if you can? It affects the scale of what needs to be done, I think."

Permalink

Fenris contacts Felix who asks. "The local Zari is asking if you have one of her."

Permalink

Tearful nod.

Permalink

This is reported back. "How much of a difference does it make?"
