He definitely, definitely, definitely didn’t mean to say That Word. He was going to say, um. Um. Monetarily Enhanced Persons? No, Monumentally Admirable Scholars of the Library Sciences. Yeah. That. He is really really sorry and if there’s anything he could do to help the librarian and make up for the bad experience, then that. Um. Except he can’t say anything like this because he’s currently being faced down by an enormous, um, librarian. And is very intimidated by it.

Satisfied that he's been suitably terrified, the librarian steps back.

"Oooook," he says to Ponder, and swings deeper into the library.

Ponder follows him.

“Okay, seriously, how do you understand the librarian?” he whispers to Ponder.

Permalink

"There's a ritual. Most of the wizards have done it."

Permalink

Huh.

This is weird. “What style is this architecture in?” It can’t be Greek or Roman, so...

Permalink

Ponder looks around and shrugs.

"That's not really my area."

Permalink

Oh, come on.

”Hey! Mr. Librarian, sir? What style of architecture is this?”

Permalink

"Uh, he says Agatean."

Permalink

...okay.

“You asked before if I’d thought my own universe was the only one. And to be honest I’d never really thought about the possibility of other universes existing before. I don’t really get how this works, either.”

Permalink

"I can attempt to explain it, but I'm not sure how much background you have and it gets technical quickly."

Permalink

“Go for it. I’ll stop you if I get confused.”

Permalink

He begins to explain parallel universes and the theories on their origins and differences. It gets technical quickly and most of the terms aren't one Lesath is familiar with, but he can probably get the general idea.

Permalink

Wow. That is a lot of information.

Permalink

“I guess we don’t have to get the map now, since we already know we’re not from the same universe.” He pauses. “I’m still a little bit confused how a world can be on a disk?

Permalink

"A ball seems more confusing to me."

Permalink

“What do you mean?”

Permalink

"Wouldn't you fall off?"

Permalink

“...no?” He’s not really sure how this whole gravity thing works but he thinks it makes people stick to the surface or something. “Maybe the librarian knows more about it?”

Permalink

Ponder looks at the librarian.

Permalink

"Ook!" the librarian says, and swings off into the shelves.
