"Do you think if concerning weather happens right after I leave it'll matter if I'm there a week later or two weeks later?"

Permalink

"Probably not."

Permalink

"Then... Probably best to do two weeks?"

Permalink

"Sure. You can find me if I travel away from this town?"

Permalink

"Yeah. Should be able to just target for you."

Permalink

"Thanks for finding me."

Permalink

"It's no problem - probably my fault you got stranded at all, and you'd been trying to help me..."

Permalink

"I figured it was an accident."

Permalink

"It was, but - I should've been more careful."

Permalink

"Well. I came out of it fine. But in case somebody's currently running from dinosaurs or something maybe check on them sooner than later."

Permalink

"Yeah. Getting you was faster than getting Jet - but I should go back to focusing on whoever I can grab next..."

Permalink

"See you in a couple weeks."

Permalink

"See you."

And she vanishes.

Permalink

Lorica mentions this eventuality to Jonabeth next time she sees her.

Permalink

"Well, it's good someone knows where you are - so you decided to stick around?"

Permalink

"For now. She can't get to my home world yet - remember, landing here is the second time this has happened to me - so she's going to find everyone else who got scattered, check back here every couple weeks, and work on finding my home."

Permalink

"Alright. I'll miss you if you go, but - good luck to her."

Permalink

"I'll at least ask what she'd want for regular shuttle service."

Permalink

"Hopefully it won't be too unreasonable."

Permalink

"I can make a lot of money back home once I'm old enough."

Permalink

"Y'all've got restrictions on that?"

Permalink

"I work for the government and it's complicated but I can quit once I'm eighteen plus or minus six months."

Permalink

"Huh. Government contracts with minors sounds sketchy, but I'm also not used to having anything really big and centralized..."

Permalink

"It's sketchy but we have superpowers and people with superpowers are conflict prone statistically - the ones who don't work for the government are mostly criminals. So it's arguably the best we can do."

Permalink

"Huh. Wonder why that is - the conflict thing. People who self-modify here are usually some kind of reckless, but it's - not really a type of reckless that means getting into fights so much as it means taking dumb bets."
