"If it has any big pieces I could cast the spell on those?"

"I'm not sure that'd work with... crumple zones, but thanks," says Brian.

Permalink

Ponder nods despite not knowing what that means.

"I could do something else?"

Permalink

"My collar?" wonders Jackson.

Permalink

"Er, sure. Can you take it off?"

Permalink

"- it has to be off?" wonders Jackson.

Permalink

"I, er, have to touch it while I say the spell."

Permalink

Jackson leans his head on Brian and ducks a little so Brian can unbuckle it for him and hand it over. Brian keeps his hand firmly on Jackson's neck while it's off.

Permalink

Ponder casts the spell on the band.

"Should I cast it on the buckle too?"

Permalink

"Yes please," Brian says. Jackson is leaning on him quite hard.

Permalink

Ponder casts it twice more, once for each part of the buckle, and then quickly hands it back over.

Permalink

Brian puts it on Jackson again and then pushes Jackson to his knees on the floor and plants his hand firmly on Jackson's head. Jackson leans on his leg. "Thank you," Jackson says.

Permalink

Ponder looks away.

"You're, er, welcome."

Permalink

"...Are you all right?" Brian asks Ponder.

Permalink

"I, erm, just don't- understand this. Sorry."

Permalink

"Do you want us to try to explain more?" Jackson asks.

Permalink

"Er, no! No, it's fine."

Permalink

"Go see if Mirai's answered your email," Brian tells Jackson.

Jackson hops up. "Yes Brian."

Permalink

"Is there, er, anything else?"

Permalink

"...to make unbreakable? I can't really think of anything. But, you know, thanks," says Brian.

Permalink

"You're welcome," he says and gestures at the table, where all of he's begun to sketch out several spell diagrams that might open a door between worlds. 

"I'll, er, get back to work."

Permalink

"Good luck with everything," says Jackson. "She hasn't answered yet, sorry."

Permalink

"Thanks."

He gets back to work. He makes progress, but not enough to make it home before the end of the night.

Permalink

Jackson makes up the couch for him to sleep on.

Permalink

He thanks him and works for a while longer and then goes to sleep.

In the morning, he gets up early and immediately resumes working on a way home.
