"That's a TV," says Jackson.

"Is it only the humans here who have doms and subs? Or does everyone?"

Permalink

"...uh, there's just us."

Permalink

"Just humans? Everywhere?"

Permalink

"Yyyyyes?"

Permalink

"No dwarves? Or trolls? Or werewolves? Or goblins? Or gnomes?"

Permalink

"No. Uh, I guess mages can learn to shapeshift."

Permalink

"How strange."

He shakes his head.

"It's pretty well within the scope of mage stuff."

"Shapeshifting is possible within our magic as well, though it can go poorly. The school's librarian is stuck as an orangutan. I'm not sure he minds, but I don't think it was intentional."

He shakes his head.

"But that's not the strange part. It's bizarre that you have a world with only one type of person. It must be so empty, though I suppose you might have fewer wars."

"We have wars, I dunno how many you have."

Brian pats the sofa next to him and puts his feet down and Jackson hops up onto the couch next to his dom.

He shrugs.

"Less than we used to I think. I haven't paid it much attention."

Permalink

"They're mostly about people being werewolves?"

Permalink

"The trolls and the dwarves are ancient enemies and humans often fight with the various types of undead."

Permalink

"Huh."

Permalink

"I don't know most of the details, wizards aren't allowed to get involved, but I think the trolls and dwarves have resolved several old grudges and the undead are mostly focused on each other at present."

Permalink

"Mages could probably do undead. I mean, like, not undead that did stuff on its own, but they could make a skeleton dance or something."

Permalink

"They wouldn't really be undead then? If they can't act on their own, they're just an animated skeleton."

Permalink

"I don't think this is a major field with its own jargon."

Permalink

"It wouldn't be, if you don't have any undead."

Permalink

"Well," says Brian, "welcome to Earth."

Permalink

"Thanks. This is quickly becoming one of the most interesting days of my life."

Permalink

"Nobody's every visited from not-Earth before," says Jackson, "I think."

Permalink

"That's not surprising. Usually wizards are too afraid to go poking around other dimensions and I'm not sure there's anyone else who could manage it."

Permalink

"...how would you know if anyone else could manage it? You didn't know about eclipsed, so there could be lots of magic you don't know about."
