"That's really bad."

"Don't worry, I won't let it happen to me. I'm a hundred years old, so I know what I'm doing!"

She nods, apparently accepting that of course adults get that old.

"Boogie can make people scared. Nanny might know some way to make people happy?"

Permalink

"We could try asking."

Permalink

"Yeah. I don't think my foster parents are home right now so they shouldn't notice you, but Nanny usually is unless she's having a meeting of Nannies. She's sometimes a bit unhappy around Boogie but I think she'll like you..."

Permalink

"That's good!"

Anything I should know about the Nanny? she asks the boogieman.

Permalink

"She's scary. She doesn't like me frightening people, even though I have to feed. She's old, and not human, and there's others like her."

Permalink

Thanks.

"Shall we go see her now, then?"

Permalink

"Yeah! Come on, she's in the living room."

And she heads over to the door, peaking behind it before throwing it open and running through the house calling, "Nanny!"

Makoto follows, more sedately.

"Yes, Nausicaa?" an old woman - her true age indeterminate, and an aura about her like the oldest of magical girls - calls, standing and turning to face the girl as she rushes into the living room.

Her expression goes slightly hard when she sees Makoto, though her voice is still friendly. "And who might you be?"

Permalink

"My name is Makoto. I'm a new friend of Nausicaa's."

Permalink

"You're not a human, and I've not seen something like you before."

Permalink

"I'm a magical girl. From an alternate universe."

Permalink

"Did something in your universe put you here, then?"

Permalink

"No, I don't think so."

Permalink

"Do you know what did?" She's glancing at Nausicaa.

Permalink

"Not for certain."

Permalink

"I did, Nanny," Nausicaa says, voice worried. "I know I made boogie so I believed really hard in someone who'd fix him."

Permalink

"Nausicaa - that's risky, didn't I tell you Imaginary Beings are often unstable?" she says, though she sounds more exasperated. "I don't know anyone who can make someone whole."

Permalink

"For what it's worth," Makoto says, "I remember a coherent personal history and world, even if it doesn't match this one."

Permalink

"Hrm. Not something I've heard of happening. It's possible Nausicaa's exceptional, or she merely made a path..."

Permalink

"I'm sure I don't know enough about this world to say."

Permalink

"I'm old, older than most of my kind, and can explain some, I suppose. There's a lot to know, if you'll be living here."

Permalink

"That would be helpful!"
