"And you have at least a partial explanation for how you got here. That's good. I'd prefer to not be one of the only three people who exist."

Permalink

"I can read more! I had a short list. I just went with you first because you seemed less complicated than some of them."

Permalink

"What's complicated about the others?"

Permalink

"Like one of 'em had her own kid and one was a god and one was a wyvern and stuff..."

Permalink

"I've met wyverns, they tend to be quite friendly, if a little intense. But you probably wouldn't want to create someone without their kid and, as fascinating as it'd be to meet a god, it does seem risky."

Permalink

"What do you mean a little intense?"

Permalink

"Most wyverns have a single focus, libraries are common. Most libraries in fairyland have a wyvern. They're hyperfocused on it and it's difficult to get them to talk about anything else. And I've yet to meet a wyvern who doesn't sound incredibly passionate all the time."

Permalink

"Gosh. I don't know about that."

Permalink

"Yeah. Wyverns aren't the first people I'd pick if I was trying to repopulate."

Permalink

"Who would be?"

Permalink

"I'm not actually that close to anyone. There are a few fairies I like and a few powerful witches I've only heard about, but no one I'd want to be responsible for either creating or kidnapping."

Permalink

"Nobody I know about from home was that great. Or in a book."

Permalink

"I'm not sure how most people would react to not being real. It's not bothering me much, but some people are likely to freak out."

Permalink

"I guess that makes sense."

Permalink

"I don't know if that's something you'll be able to predict from reading a book. I wouldn't have known how I'd react, if you'd asked me ahead of time. So that's a reason not to create people who can instantly murder us if they are upset, at least for now."

"Yes, I agree. Suggests no gods or wyverns." Cathei announces it's feeding time; Rabka summons her to her arms and feeds her.

Permalink

"Aww."

Permalink

"When she's done do you wanna hold her?"

Permalink

"Yeah, I would."

Permalink

And when Cathei consents to be finished nursing she is offered to Glen.

Permalink

Glen carefully takes her.

She knows how to hold a baby, but she's obviously not practiced in it.

Permalink

She doesn't get it wrong enough to warrant correction. "Isn't she so soft and warm?"

Permalink

Glen smiles down at the baby.

"She is."

Permalink

"My owner was going to sell her so I walked into the magic and said he'd better sell the both of us to somebody else or I wasn't coming out."

Permalink

"What a horrible person. That was really brave of you. I'm not sure I could've done it."
