Kisonde looks at the weeping Fire, and decides breaking this amulet is probably safe.

She does.



The floor starts to smoke under Fire's feet.

"Pull in your halo," says Shadow, giggling. Fire looks down and snorts. The flames wreathing his skin subside until some parts of him are actually visible through them, and the floor ceases to be imperiled.

Promise giggles.

"Hi, welcome to Milliways, it is a multiworld hub, the ultimate plan is to move you through my house to a remote part of Fairyland but for the time being most of the swiped elementals are flying around in the backyard."

Many of the parts of Fire that are visible are damaged in some way. This does not prevent him from hugging Shadow some more.

"...Hey, you want a heal?" asks Shine.

"Who, me? I'm fine," shrugs Fire.

"You're not fine," mumbles Shadow, almost inaudibly.

"I am now."

"Short stuff who mugged your owner is Promise, by the way, and she's a fairy."

"Promise is already a nickname. What's the added value of 'short stuff'?"

Permalink

"Amusement. And call me Revelation, because she does her thing with names so I'm not using my real one."

Permalink
"...I sure hope elements don't count as names," says Fire.

"They don't," says Earth. "I checked."

"Good for you," says Fire. He finally puts Shadow down and looks around. (Shadow continues hugging him.) "Hi, Revelation. I like your tail."

"Thanks, I made it myself."

Permalink

"How's that work?" asks Fire. (Snuggle snuggle. Nope, Shadow and Fire are not going to stop hugging anytime soon.)

Permalink

"I'm a demon. Demons can make stuff, and that includes my wings and tail. And we're indestructible. Earlier Earth detached my wings to see if that counted as hurting me and then tried my tail to see if he could do it without me letting him; it seems like I'm still normal amounts of indestructible relative to elemental stuff."

Permalink

"Huh," says Fire, absently petting Shadow's hair. "Can I try setting you on fire to see what happens?"

Permalink

"Shine, can I get a heal if it's bad? If it's just a singe like it would be if I touched a hot stove it'll heal fine by itself but if it's nasty I'd rather not wait."

Permalink

"Sure, no problem," says Shine.

Revelation holds his hand out to the Fire. "If you can get past the first couple layers of skin that'll be plenty to prove that you are extra special on fire."

Permalink
Fire takes Revelation's hand.

Now Revelation's hand is covered in fire. Lots and lots of fire.
Permalink

"Ow. Ow, okay, I don't think you're magically harmful but you're still hot, all done now."

Permalink

Fire shrugs and lets go.

Permalink

Revelation shakes his hand through the air and it self-repairs. "Okay, I will be careful with elemental handshakes but not paranoid, good to know."

Permalink

"I would hate to be you," Fire remarks.

Permalink

"Why's that?"

Permalink

"You can't get hurt worse than that, right?" he asks, gesturing to Cam's recently singed hand.

Permalink

"Not if I'm not deliberately screwing around with myself. If I wanted to saw off my own hand at the wrist nothing's stopping me."

Permalink
"I guess that's okay," says Fire.

"You're weird," murmurs Shadow.

"It occurs to me," says Earth, "that there's nothing stopping us from finding the local alt of you two now. Unless she's under a scry ward at the moment."

"That would be nifty!"
