"Hopefully same way I got here. I use it to get places, I guess we accidentally made it very good at getting people places."

"Can you use it to take people or things with you, back and forth?"

Permalink

"Uh. It broke this time, so I'd probably have to make a new design each time? And probably anyone and anything I could fit on it."

Permalink

"Well. You can stay here while you fix it. If you want more from us than plain water you'll have to earn your keep."

Permalink

"Suppose that's fair." And place to rest?

Large parts of the beach are not in use. No one seems to be volunteering to let Blair into their house.

Permalink

Ugh. Anyone back home except douchebag neighbor would'a let them stay at least a night.

"Once I'm recovered I can make things - more themselves. Last longer, work better. Have'ta craft it somehow, but I could like paint a wall and that wall'll stand until the magic wears off. Which's a while if it's just sitting there being a wall."

"Can you improve weapons? Would the magic on them last longer than on your vehicle?"

Permalink

"...Yeah? Magic usually lasts at least round about a year. I'd wanna know who's being shot at first, though."

"Us, if Thecal and Nanem get involved in the war in the west. We don't want to start anything, just be prepared if things don't wait for us to start them."

Permalink

"I am not from this planet probably and am really, really way too drunk to decide war stuff. - Oh, is there an apocalypse beast? Because I'm pretty sure everyone on my planet noticed the apocalypse beast."

Permalink

"No. How likely is your apocalypse beast to follow you here?"

Permalink

"Uh. It lives in the north and I think's never bothered with Appalachia, dunno how'd it even notice me being there to follow."

Permalink

"It had better not follow you. Well, what are you willing to do, if not weapons?"

Permalink

"If I wasn't drunk and had ever talked to more'n two people here I'd be less bleh about weapons. I can do buildings, clothes, vehicles, phones - most any solid item - and make drinks that do shit, I can't do things on people, I'm not trained, but non-people're easy."

Permalink

"Communication thingy, I don't know how to make one from scratch."

Permalink

"What can you do to buildings and clothes?"

Permalink

"Make them. Better at being buildings and clothes? Like durable and warm and shit."

Permalink

"And do they do anything else? Allow you to track the wearer or steal their energy?"

Permalink

"That's. Not what they do normally, I can't make something into a thing it's not."

She addresses her own people. "Anyone want to volunteer to test our guest's magic on your clothes? No kids." Some five-or-so-year-olds immediately look disappointed but she doesn't seem to be counting eleven-year-olds as kids because there's one of those in the group of three volunteers that drop what they're doing (or drop the pretense that they're doing anything but watching Blair) and come over to talk to Blair.

"Can you enchant things while someone's still wearing them?" asks a volunteer.

Permalink

"I have to do something - paint it, embroider it - the magic's in the craft."

Permalink

"Did you bring your tools?" asks one of the people interested in clothes that are better at being clothes. "If not I have some thread you can use."

Permalink

"Uhh, no, didn't. Thanks."
