"Must've been weird, dying and becoming a daeva when most people hadn't even known what daeva were until just then. I guess it'd be weird at any time if you didn't know it was coming, though."

Permalink

"I mean, everyone knew about them existing by the time I died! It was very attention-getting."

Permalink

"I guess that's fair. And maybe you were used to weirdness by that point."

Permalink

"I was a summoner pre-Revelation so I'd had the 'I know and no one else does' experience before."

Permalink

"Ah. How'd you find out about it?"

Permalink

"Found a book in an abandoned house I was exploring for kicks."

Permalink

"Gosh, so you figured out all the rules and things all on your own?"

Permalink

"The book was pretty good! It needed a little editing, but it was an adequate introduction and then I talked to some daeva."

Permalink

"Ah. I hear talking to daeva sometimes goes pretty well, though I'm sure it matters a lot who you get."

Permalink

"I was lucky," he says. "Sometimes that happens."

Permalink

"And it's very nice when it does."

Permalink

He grins at her.

Permalink

She grins back.

It's a good thing she doesn't have a crush on Cam, because if she did, she would be having a truly excessive number of feelings right now. Good job not descending into confused internal screaming, feelings.

Permalink

Cam is oblivious, and plays the violin for the rest of their trip to Earth's orbit, where he awaits her collection of a license to create a station.

Permalink

Kalia completes her paperwork and figures out how to obtain a license! This is a thing she can do.

Permalink

It is not terribly hard to do! She has to submit a plan for the station, which Cam has on hand.

Permalink

This is good! She'll let Cam know when the license is obtained. And then he can make a space station.

Permalink

He starts it from her shuttle, but once its skeleton is in place and it's in proper orbit based on his frame of reference, he flies out to it and adds to it from there.

Permalink

Cool!

Kalia looks up what the schedule is for summoning certification tests, so they can hopefully stop breaking laws pretty soon. Breaking laws has become kind of a habit, but it's a bad habit and she would like to stop.

Permalink

They have them once a week on Lime Station.

Permalink

Cool, cool. She'll just add that to her calendar. 

The only other things scrawled on her to-do list are 'write a letter to Rozben', 'get Zana back (after station is completed)' and 'end death'. The station's not quite done yet and the last of those sounds like it needs more bullet points underneath it, so she gets to work writing a letter to Rozben, expanding on Zana's situation and asking him if he'd like to be summoned to further discuss how they're going to organize things from here on out. Replies can be gotten to her through Cam.

Permalink

If he writes back, she'll have to wait for Cam to conjure his reply.

Fortunately the station isn't all that time consuming; he's back soon enough.

Permalink

"Hi! All done?"

Permalink

"Yup! Except you should name it and then I can put the name on the sides."

Permalink

"Ohh, right, stations need names. Uh, I should have had a name handy, but I don't, and everything my brain is giving me on the spot is terrible."
