Kalia looks taken aback by this. "Nah, dude, I'm not gonna keep a three-year-old locked up in a space station forever without letting her meet other people or go to parks or zoos or, y'know, do things kids should get to do. Like, I think it's important that she have a stable environment and caregiver situation, and it's super important to me to see her on a regular basis and make sure she's getting enough time with her brother, especially now that she's lost her parents, but I figure, like - frequent day trips to Hell, at least?"

"That's - really great. We'll - I have girlfriends, she hasn't met them yet, didn't want to get attached if she wasn't going to stick around - we'll show her all the cool stuff in Hell."

"Awesome," says Kalia, brightly. "I think she's probably gonna spend the rest of the day here, let her get used to the station and stuff, and then in a day or two we can send her back to your place, and then - she can come over every other day-ish, with us communicating scheduling through Cam, if that sounds OK to you?"

Permalink

"Yeah, absolutely. How often should I check my mail to make sure I'm home when she's on her way?"

Permalink

"Once a day should be fine? We can make sure to work out scheduling at least a week or so in advance after we've got the general setup figured out."

Permalink

"Okay. Thank you so much."

Permalink

"Mhmm! Thank you!"

Annnd dismiss.

Rozben is muttering to himself thoughtfully about zoos and parks and roller coasters and fireworks and that lady he knows who has an eight year old and then he's gone.

She lets out a breath that doesn't sound like it contains very much pent-up stress, all things considered. "Well. I think that went really really well."

Permalink

"Congratulations on your demon co-guardians."

She laughs. "I am sure between the however many of us we can successfully figure out how one goes about raising tiny demons. Ohhh, drat, I forgot to talk about whether there's any way to prevent her from trying to turn herself into a shark. I guess I can just ask about that in a letter later. Are you OK ferrying letters, I forgot to ask you exactly how involved you want to be in this whole - whatever it is."

"I don't mind being your mailer demon. Although you can also have conjured mail set up via the bulk service."

Permalink

"...yes. I could do this. I'll make sure to set that up if anything weird happens or if you change your mind or anything."

Permalink

"It's good practice to know how to tap existing institutions designed to solve problems you have, even if they don't advertise to your exact situation and are more about contacting loved ones who are merely on other celestial bodies."

"All right, then, I can look into it now. I've cleared out most of the items on my to-do list anyway, apart from ending death as we know it, and I'm not super sure how to do that one but I think it probably involves taking classes. Oh, and there's the certification thing, if you're not doing anything else we should do that on Saturday. Or, uh, if you are doing something else I can just summon someone else, I should really attempt to break this habit of constantly breaking laws."

Permalink

"I have no Saturday plans. I do have a thing on Monday."

Permalink

"Cool, cool. Nothing Monday, then." She sighs. "How exactly does one go about ending death, d'you think? If you only get one shot then it seems like the conservative approach is to get into academia as a researcher and then get some people to peer review your findings through official channels, but I dunno if there's anything faster that'll work about as well."

"Revelation worked with a lot of simultaneity - you could dismiss one report of a fairy appearing in a downtown and demonstrating a lot of magic and handing out books, but when everybody all over the world said the same thing, credible people looked at the books and tried stuff. So I guess one thing you could try is track down a lot of relatives of famous living people - not necessarily especially credible ones as long as you can get a lot - and summon them all at once and send them to their families."

Permalink

"Oooh, that's an idea. This requires making a list of dead summoners related to famous people, which honestly sounds like something I can totally do."

Permalink

"It will be very tedious! Some of it's more forensic conjuration amenable than bookkeeping, because some people will have summoned on an amateur basis, I'll help with that if you like."

Permalink

"If saving lots of humans from missing their families and friends forever just requires a tolerance for tedium, then I am going to breathe a sigh of relief, honestly. And yeah, I'd be really grateful for help."

Permalink

"You can get me lists of famous people's relatives and I can get you valid circles completed thereby per some number of names and then we can figure out who drew 'em and where they wound up."

Permalink

This sounds like an excellent process. She will be more than happy to spend the rest of the day working on it, with a break for dinner when Connor and Zana find their way back from exploring.

Permalink

And Cam will be happy to make everybody dinner unless Zana wants to do it.

Permalink

Zana would LOVE to but is maybe not the best person ever to trust with making dinner. She begins by conjuring ice cream. Her aunt reminds her that some people at the table can't eat infinite amounts of sugar, at which point Zana very seriously conjures a pizza.
