"Yes, let's."

"We'll have to go on foot a ways before it's safe," he says. They start heading south. "How have you found your adventures thus far?"

Hike hike hike. Not as fun as flying, and in these forms her legs are much shorter than Arcanagos', but it covers the ground. "Interesting and pleasant! I've passed lots of lovely scenery. And I went to Wyrmrest, that was interesting."

Permalink

"It quite often is," Arcanagos says. "Was anyone else there?"

Permalink

"Dragonqueen Alexstraza and Warden Mezadormu were both around, or at least passing through at the same time."

Permalink

"That's a rare treat. The Dragonqueen, that is, not Mezadormu." He shakes his head. "I've never known a bronze to use their powers so freely as he does."

Permalink

"Why is that? I can imagine it being disorienting, but are there other drawbacks he's unusually willing to accept?"

Permalink

"The Bronze Flight is not very communicative about the extents and limitations of their peculiar magic, but our own research suggests that no matter how much you fold and stretch time, there's only so much of a person to go around. Being in two places at the same time ought to be very tiring."

Permalink

"It does sound exhausting when you put it like that. Perhaps," she jokes, "Mezadormu is simply so energetic a person that if he weren't in two places at once, he would tire the rest of us out."

Permalink

"That is disturbingly plausible. Though he may also simply like to be able to gossip. Did you notice he knew your name before you introduced yourself?"

Permalink

"Yup. He does that a lot, then?"

Permalink

"In every instance I am aware of, the first time you meet him is not the first time he has met you."

Permalink

Maragosa turns this over in her mind for a bit. "That sounds like it would take a lot of effort to arrange."

Permalink

"It undoubtedly does. It is a good trick, though."

Permalink

"It is. As hobbies go it's a pretty interesting one."

Permalink

"We all need to fill our time somehow, bronzes perhaps more than others. I once knew a black who collaborated with a green on a sort of rock garden. Interesting fellows."

Permalink

"That sounds worth seeing. I've mostly been filling my time with study and more recently travel. How about you, do you have much time for things other than your work?"

Permalink

"I paint. Mostly landscapes; I can't seem to pick up the knack for portraiture."

Permalink

"That sounds nice. And I get you get lots of inspiration, with all the traveling you do. Speaking of which, how much farther are we going on foot?"

Permalink

"Just far enough to not cause any undue alarm. If we cut through those hills there, that should suffice."

Permalink

"Oh good. This form is serviceable, and still somewhat novel, but I wouldn't call it comfortable."

Permalink

"Many find humanoid bodies to be so. If the Titans themselves were not built to the same plan, I doubt we would have adopted their use."

Permalink

"That and an advantage at fitting through doors."

Permalink

Arcanagos chuckles. "Very true. Here should be fine."

He shifts into his dragon form. He's about twice as big as Maragosa, with slight tattering along the trailing edges of his wings.

Permalink

Maragosa shifts likewise, and stretches her wings contendedly. "Heh. You're taller than me in both forms by the same amount for different reasons."
