I feel like these are things that most people can accomplish without demons.

We're faster.

You're also super dangerous and evil and most people don't know you exist, particularly in the developed world? - this isn't getting us anywhere. What if you tell me exactly what you think is going on here, and I tell you exactly what I think is going on here, and then we see if there's some strategy that stands a fair chance of working no matter which thing is actually going on?

People have known demons exist for about a hundred fifty years. It was simultaneously revealed all over Earth, it was a big deal.

Permalink

A hundred and fifty years ago was like.... 1858? I really feel like this did not happen in 1858.

Where I'm from it's 2159.

Permalink

Welcome to 2008, dude.

Permalink

Even if I time traveled you should have had Revelation like last year!

Permalink

...so not to torpedo my own credibility but I'm not like entirely sure about what all happened last year, it's like January and they sort of kidnapped me like eleven months ago. But I feel like the vampires would've said something.

Permalink

Also I feel like it's a basic rule of kidnapping people that you don't leave summoning textbooks lying around but perhaps this is one of their rare errors.

Oh it's mostly not! It's a medieval Latin manuscript that's mostly about relations between different dimensions. My aunt's Latin is too bad to read the whole thing, she didn't know it had any spells in it. They're mostly pretty good at not letting me have magic stuff unsupervised.

Permalink

There's other magic stuff?

Permalink

Lots of magic stuff! Of course I don't have a lot of practice with it and I'd mostly need more materials to do anything useful. That's why this spell was so promising, I could do it without rare incense or mandrake root or whatever.

Permalink

I could... make you incense? I don't know about mandrake root, that sounds like a suspiciously magical plant.

Permalink

I don't have any real spellbooks here, and I wouldn't want to cast anything powerful from memory, I don't think. 

Permalink

A sensible precaution.

Anyway, even if vampires are real, I don't think they can decapitate me, because I'm indestructible. I would not bet my life on being immune to whatever you do with incense and mandrake root, but decapitation I no-sell.

Permalink

Hmm. Well, assuming this is accurate and you're not going to be the latest in a long line of demons who thought they could take on a slayer and live, that does give us more options. I dunno how many more options but I'm sure it gives us several.

Permalink

I could also leave the house, if there's a wall I can quietly destroy and replace, and go looking for help if you know where to find it?

Permalink

This is a really internal room, I'm not allowed in the ones that border the outside unsupervised. And I'm having trouble imagining you inconspicuously destroying a wall, especially with the cameras everywhere.

Permalink

Okay, yes, if there's cameras everywhere I am much impaired in my unobtrusiveness.

Permalink

Yeah. I think I taped over all the ones in this room before I summoned you, but I don't know how to inconspicuously block them in the areas that they keep lighted. 

Permalink

Cam nods. He sighs. I can get you a phone and you can try it just in case but maybe you should like... name a person who would own a phone, so I can duplicate theirs exactly and hope it can fool the network.

Permalink

Oooh, maybe, can you get me a copy of -

Permalink

And with absolutely no warning, the door opens.

Imrainai takes in the room.

"I knew I shouldn't have let you read those," sighs Imrainai. "You're just getting so smart!"

Permalink

Cam doesn't immediately take hostile action but, to inappropriately borrow D&D parlance, readies an action. He scans his binding for loopholes; his Latin is a little better than his summoner's.
