"Thanks. You can go ahead and be smug about me, I rock."

He laughs gleefully. "I think I will. Do you want to see Genosha?"

"Yeah!"

And then they are in his office. "Atennisi! And, uh--" says a woman who was sitting in a chair to the side going through some papers. 

"This is Belamaveth," says Atennisi. "I trust her implicitly." 

"Okay," says the woman, taking this in stride. "Pleased to meet you, Belamaveth."

"Pleased to meet you too!" Handshake?

Permalink

Handshake! "I haven't seen you before, you need a tour?"

Permalink

"Let's go with yes."

Permalink

"Okay!" she says. "Getting-around tour or getting-a-feel-for-the-place tour?"

Permalink

"Feel for the place."

Permalink

"Okay!" 

She leads Belamaveth around, pointing out notable classrooms and offices and things. Once they're done with this building she points out gardens on the way to the next building. 

The gardens are, as a frequent playground for biologically-focused mages, extremely pretty and even more eclectic.

...she will play with this one flower just a liiiiitle bit.

Organic things are so easy to work with when you know how they work, which she does!

Now it is pretty colors and ruffly. Onward!

Onward!

Here are some lecture halls, here are some laboratories for general chemistry, over there is a laboratory for work dangerous enough that it wants to be a little ways off from other stuff and also regularly magicked to remove dangerous traces of toxic chemicals, over this way is a dormitory hall, and of course wherever there aren't paths or trees or buildings or other uses of space there are gardens. Some of them are for magic experimentation, some are for decoration, but most of them grow edibles. It is a flying island, after all, and even with magic it's a good idea to grow more food rather than less.

It's nice to see the place for real. She steadies herself with magic as she trots along.

The island is beautiful. The University itself is planned out in a spiderweb pattern that is both convenient for its inhabitants and aesthetically appealing. The rest of the island, which she isn't actively on a tour of but can see intermittently, is less carefully-planned but still guided enough that the miscellaneous eclectic elements harmonize rather than clashing oftener than not.

"It's so pretty here!"

Permalink

"It is! Where're you from?"

Permalink

"Woodsail," she says after a pause.

Permalink

"Never heard of it," she admits. "What's it like?"

Permalink

"Lots of trees!"

Permalink

"Trees are nice! They've got a good output-to-land ratio, in terms of like fruit and stuff, so there are a lot of them on the island. It's not a forest but I've never seen so many trees in a ground city."

Permalink

"Most of the trees in Woodsail are for, uh, wood, not for fruit, but it's nice to have lots around," Belamaveth agrees.

Permalink

"Trees take too long to grow for lumber to be a good use of space here, I'm pretty sure. A fruit tree keeps producing fruit for a long time."

Permalink

"Yeah, that makes sense considering."
