"...shouldn't we check on Ari first?"

Permalink

"...oh shit, I completely forgot that Ari was dying." Li-Ming starts conjuring a portal to Bastion's Keep.

Permalink

The triplets follow.

"Do you think there is a way to restore him with the soulstone or is that as a potentially apocalyptic idea as it sounds like?"

Permalink

Felix is the first one there.

Permalink

"Do you want Diablo back? Because that's how you get Diablo back."

Ari seems alright. He's still weirdly waifish, but there's a light glowing through his skin and he's moving around.

"Felix!" He hugs Felix. "Did you kill my mom?"

Permalink

Relieved hugs. "Yeah, well, Li-Ming did. It was pretty awesome. How are you feeling?"

Permalink

"Try not to make him exert himself too much."

Permalink

"Okay, no risk of getting Diablo back. There are probably better options," Fernando tells Li-Ming.

Permalink

"I feel... weird. Weak. But also... kind of good? And I've been experimenting with this light stuff. Is anybody hurt?"

Permalink

"Not unusually so. And light stuff?"

Permalink

"Something about him being connected to an angelic arc. It gaves us a scare, we had to put him in life support for a while." He clings a bit on Ari. There is an impression he has been doing that a lot.

Permalink

He begins glowing more intensely. Any minor injuries that Felix might have melt away.

Then Ari starts coughing, the light growing dim. It flickers a few times before returning to its base level. "Whoops," he says faintly. "Still need to work on not overdoing it. I don't have as much angelic power as I used to have demonic."

Permalink

Yeah, cling.

Permalink

"Neat! I wonder if we could use Synth to get you back to... not normal, but at least human-ish normal or something."

Permalink

Ari shrugs. "Wouldn't mind being a little sturdier."

Permalink

"Isn't that dangerous? Or at least something you can't do as an adult?"

Permalink

"Nah. You can do it at any age, it just hurts a lot and it's hard to anesthetize it properly."

Permalink

"Sounds like fun to me!"

Permalink

"What a surprising turn of events! Speaking of that," Thomas looks around "where is Gabe?"

Permalink

"He is asleep. Uh, I might have burned through his wakefulness by doing too many divination rituals on Ari."

Permalink

"He was very protective," Ari says. "It was sweet."

Permalink

"Aw, you three are sweet."

Permalink

"I almost got him and everyone killed by being too stupid to suspect how shady his mother looked."

Permalink

"Dude, seriously. The apocalypse was averted. Everyone is forbidden from being sad for the next twenty-four hours."
