"Yeah, though maybe writing a sufficiently be-resourced peal that's destined to spread across the omniverse and resurrect everyone everywhere into a perfect world for them - ? Also is every self insert I have ever written a fork, I should probably take a moment to monologue about the importance of being kind to literally yourself though I'm not sure I'd listen, wow holy fuck was that a pronoun screw."

"Yeah. It's a little hard to keep track of. I think we might be in a thread so I think I'll let the moral significance conversation go for now, at least until I have more information to use to come up with answers."

Permalink

"Probably reasonable!" Awkward pause. "Oh, so, wait, what's the cruise like? I'm guessing it's not like secretly horrible?"

Permalink

She grins.

"It's not! At least as far as I know. It's supposed to be like Milliways but with more time to just hang out and less stress."

Permalink

"That sounds good, Milliways does seem potentially high pressure-y."

Permalink

"Yeah and there's no where to really go if you're done with your conversation and don't want to go home yet. Here, there are rooms!"

Permalink

"Rooms are good! What's all there to explore?"

Permalink

"Uh, the aquarium obviously. Lots of weird little nooks and crannies and oddly decorated rooms and I think there's a planetarium in here somewhere. There's also a lot of shops. Not the boring kind of shops with clothes and keychains, the interesting kind."

Permalink

"I might wander around a bit, see if I can find a library? An interdimensional library would be really neat."

Permalink

"I think there's definitely one of those somewhere. Did you, uh, want to go by yourself? We can exchange room numbers so we can find each other later."

Permalink

"I don't mind going together? Room numbers works, or, like, dinner plans works better because then people aren't showing up at my door and the room thing can be just in case we really miss each other, or wait is there like an intra-cruise mail system?"

Permalink

"You can call each others rooms. I think since you could do that on the one cruise I've actually been on."

Permalink

"Phones are bad but like notes under the door's fine?"

Permalink

"I can probably get the cruise to slip a note under your door."

She pauses.

"I don't know the whole deal with the Harry Potter situation and maybe another you might exist in my world right now, but if you didn't actually want to leave I think people can get off at each other's stops?"

"That's a really nice offer, and like meeting myself is about fifty different fantasies, but also the Harry Potter world kinda needs Hermione and I'm pretty sure the people in that world exist? And Hermione's parents would miss me if I never came back. Though a chance to get modern internet and just. Take back reams of information on advances and stuff? Would be pretty neat, I could jump-start a few fields? And like actually know when bad stuff happens, because my memory's bad enough I haven't wanted to try interfering in society outside of the plot because I have no idea what I'm doing."

Permalink

"Yeah. Yeah that's fair. We can probably get you Earth internet. What's it like being a witch? Is it like the books?"

Permalink

"I don't have a wand yet, so I've been trying to figure out wandless magic. It's neat! I'm also a metamorphagus for some weird reason?"

Permalink

-- for some weird reason she feels compelled to enter at this exact moment. She wants too see jellyfish since they are clearly the best aquatic creatures.

Permalink

Erin steps aside so she's not blocking the tank. 

"What animal are you?"

Permalink

The jellyfish really are lovely. They drift gently in their tank.

Permalink

Off-hand "Hey!" to the newcomer, then back to Erin: "That's animagus, I think? The metamorphagus is like Tonk's thing, I can change my body - " And ze gives zirself wolf ears, colored lavender and white and green because ze's feeling silly. "But I need to still be pretty much human-ish, like I can do a non-prehensile tail but not wings, can do cloven hooves but not full satyr legs."

Permalink

"Oh right. I got them mixed up. That's really cool! Can you do feathers?"

Permalink

Feather hair! Same colors as the wolf ears; the total effect's pretty silly.

"Head feathers are easier than body feathers, but I think that might be a me-brain thing?"

Permalink

Anya stops admiring the jellyfish and stares at zem.

"Um."

Permalink

"Oh, hi, sorry if we were being loud? Or distracting, I've had magic a couple years and it's still amazing..."
