Indilzar and Aglaril will be absolutely fascinated. Aglaril wants May to name more things; occasionally she'll have her stop until she can replicate her pronunciation to her satisfaction.

...okay then.

If this is a dream it's a kind of tedious one but oh well.

Indilzar is starting to look very concerned. "Quenya and Sindarin are - like, yes? Adûnaiyâ and Taliska are like? English is not like." 

Permalink

"...English is not related to any languages you know?"

Permalink

"English is not related to any languages I know." Aglaril mutters something incomprehensible. "May, where is Canada?" 

Permalink

She sketches a little map of the Americas, approximates the US-Canada border. Writes "CANADA".

"I think very far away," she says.

There is a map somewhere in Aglaril's office, and eventually they'll even manage to find it. It looks like this. 

Indilzar points to the little island at the bottom left. "Here. Númenorë. Anadûnê."

She draws in Europe and Asia and Africa and Australia and associated islands she happens to recall and labels things she can remember.

"Not there," she says, pointing at the map.

"...I think the King will want to talk to you." 

Permalink

"...okay."

Permalink

"Not now, if you don't want, the King is very busy, and you are - hungry, tired? yes?" 

Permalink

"I'm a little hungry and tired, yes."

Permalink

"There is, how do you say, a large room with food? For students? And rooms for students sleeping, also." 

Permalink

"Cafeteria and dormitory."

Permalink

"Cafeteria, then dormitory?" It's already evening. 

Permalink

"Sounds good."

Permalink

The cafeteria has a limited number of dining options at this hour, but most of them seem appetizing. Indilzar isn't eating, but he pours himself a cup of coffee so thick his spoon practically stand up in it. "You must have questions." 

Permalink

"I don't know how I got here but I don't think you do either."

Permalink

"I meant, about here." 

Permalink

Mmmm food. "What's the world called? Mine is called Earth."

Permalink

"Abatta. Ardhon in Sindarin, Arda in Quenya." 

Permalink

"Do people appear suddenly often?"

Permalink

"Not to my knowledge. It's not unheard of, but those people usually turn out to be Maiar." 

Permalink

"What's a Maiar?"

Permalink

"Maia, singular. They are - powers? Small powers. I'm not sure I have the words for this."
