"It should be easier to accomodate that sort of need in our island."

"At least there will a larger percentage of the population willing to do so."

"Her home didn't look cleaner than our own."

"It shouldn't be too difficult. Don't leave garbage lying around, do your... business, in the washroom, wash afterwards, and after touching garbage or dead things. Shower at least once a day. They're not unreasonable standards." 

Permalink

Henries nod. "That really isn't. We can enforce them harder as necessary."

Permalink

"It sounds like we have a plan, then." He glances down at Tobir, "Come hold the door for me so I can retrieve some things from home?" 

Permalink

He nods, and they go over to the door to do that, "I wanna take some stuff too," he tells Remi. "Coming?" He asks Heri, "It's not... really nice, or anything, but..." Honestly he doesn't want to show off the house, he just doesn't want to be too far away from Heri.

(Alex motions one of the Henries over so they can talk about that offer to send some of their copies to his and Angel's world.)

Heri follows Tobir. Holding tight to his hand. A Henry and the Felix offer to help Remi.

And a Henry follows Alex.

Remi appreciates the help. He'll send Tobir in first to grab the things he wants, though he'll be going through after to pack up the necessities the two-year-old doesn't think of. Meanwhile, he turns to Henry to ask what those necessities should be.

"What will we need to bring with us? I think the more we can leave behind the less panicked the authorities will be about our disappearance, in the case that we are unable to return. It could be bad for our neighbors if it looks like we packed up and left of our own volition."

Tobir pulls Heri over to his bedroom. It's larger than the one Heri shared with Kenta, but not by very much. There's a small shelf of worn books, and a few toys - a block set (currently in the shape of a small space fleet), a couple of colouring books and a pack of pencil crayons, and a pair of stuffed animals. A lightly patched blue dog, and a soft and fluffy green deer.

Tobir hardly gives the other things in a room a glance, bee-lining straight for the stuffed animals. He tugs them down from their shelf, and solemnly turns to hand the deer to Heri.

"...It's yours," he says after a moment.

Heri hugs the stuffed toy, and something about its smell, brings up the vaguest memories of being held in someone's arms. He holds it tighter.

Felix speaks first. "How limited is your ability to duplicate things? Could you just crystal-fy his entire home, furniture included and then let them keep the copies?"

Permalink

"I can't do that much, but I can do somethings approximately this volume," he gestures something roughly the size of a cube, two feet in size, "per day, without exhausting myself."

To Remi. "I think the main things we are missing is anything internet and communication related. So, it would be a good time to download any information you might want? We do have clothes, hygiene products, variety of food, all replicable by crystal. We also have medicine, but mostly we relay on these slow-acting health crystals, and we also know how to use crystal magic medically."

Permalink

Tobir will help with recalling the feeling of that memory by hugging him. 

Permalink

"Ah. Alright. I'll see how much I can fit on my everything. If we need more space you could copy my laptop - what sort of tech level are you working with, actually? If there's anything Amenta has which the island lacks I could look for any information on it." 

Permalink

"We use magic for everything. But we have light, heating, freshwater. The main thing we need that isn't a way out, is mostly entertainment and variety."

Permalink

"Hm, alright. I'm afraid we don't have FTL yet either, but movies, music, and books I can do - though of course they'll need to be translated." He looks off down the hall at the door to Tobir's room, "Tobir? Do you need help carrying something?"

Permalink

Tobir looks back at the door, and then around at the things in the room. He shakes his head, "No, I'm okay," he calls back. "Do you wanna take some of this stuff?" He asks Heri, "They've probably got stuff to do there, right... but they probably don't have the same books." He bends down to look through the selection, pulling a couple off the shelves.

Permalink

"Speaking of," Remi adds, "Do you have a translation solution, or will we have to learn the language the usual way?"

Permalink

"Both, one of our empowered crystals does translation, but they are short ranged and we use them to read stuff out of the library."

Permalink

"Yes? I don't know what to take."

Permalink

He straightens up holding a couple books in the same arm as the stuffed dog. "Anything? Hm, maybe they won't have brickblocks? You can stick them together to make things," he sets his things down and picks up one of the spaceships to demonstrate, pulling it apart and putting it back together, and then offers it to Heri. "And the books," he adds, "These ones are my favourites, but maybe you'll like some of the others..." He looks down, fiddling with his hands, "I don't really remember what your favourite books were, before..."

Permalink

"Well, I fairly successfully pretended to be green for three years. I'm sure I'll manage, and the kids are all young enough to pick it up without much trouble, given some time." 

Permalink

"Oh, good. At any rate we will help you out."

Permalink

Heri frowns... "I remember I liked one with a talking star?"
