“I'm me! don't know how to squeeze it into a word-sound!”

"That's a very valid perspective! A lot of people just use names as a convenient person-reference, though - like, so if I'm addressing a crowd I can specify you. They're also required for personal documentation, which you'll need eventually..."

Permalink

This is his unenthusiastic face.

“So if I asked you to just pick something for me…?”

Permalink

"I mean I could? That's how humans get their names, our parents pick. You might be better served just finding some syllables you like and mashing them together..."

Permalink

“Maybe I'll think of something.”

Permalink

"No huge rush. You'll need one for documentation, but this area doesn't have time restrictions on when you need to get an ID."

Permalink

“Mm.”

He perks up some. “Can we go see some outdoors?”

Permalink

"Sure! There's the garden, or the woods around here - I always liked the woods more, but the garden's pretty neat, too."

Permalink

“Woods!”

Permalink

Woods it is!

There's walking trails through the woods, which Lianne has apparently been slowly clearing and working on over time, but there's also thinner deer paths. The largest path leads down to a little stream, well isolated from the house and surrounding buildings.

Permalink

Things he likes about the woods: open space! Non-flat terrain! The crunchy noises of leaves and sticks! The very distant sounds of the rest of the world! Trees!

Permalink

They like the woods a lot too! (When they were just Lianne it was a good chance to get away from Marian.)

They're in low mountains, so there's little ridges, and sometimes glimpses of a valley through the trees. A light breeze floats through the area.

He eventually sits on a convenient chunk of stone and sighs happily.

“There's so much” — handwave — “space!”

Permalink

"That's one really nice thing about living out here, yeah. I used to spend - a lot - of time cutting trails through here. I'll probably go back to that, once things are more... Settled."

Permalink

“I'd be happy to come along, either way, if you want,” he says tentatively.

Permalink

"With cutting trails?"

Permalink

"Hm. Not entirely sure I'll stick around - have I really explained what happened? Anyways, I used to be a weapon. Marian's. We had a weird interaction, and kind of merged. Before that... I didn't like him, and wasn't. Really cooperating. So it's weird. Remembering hating him, and being him. And now we're... Both kind of each other."

“If you decide to leave I still want to come along. — Or maybe go do my own thing, I don't know.”

Permalink

"I can help you with either. Get you set up, get you your documents..."

Permalink

“Yeah.”


“Names…”

Permalink

"We don't need to rush on that, but - you should decide maybe in the next week?"

Permalink

“Find me something that means ‘lost in the woods’. Or ‘lost in the wood’,” making a vague staff-wielding gesture.

Permalink

"I'll have to think, hm. We could probably put together something - I know some last names mean 'wood'. I'd have to look at a naming site for 'lost' though."

Permalink

“It's a vague notion!” he says amicably.

He stands up from the rock.
