Please don't test that on yourself.

I have no idea! You can move souls around though, I was going learn to do that.

Permalink

Souls? Liro jumps on the new topic immediately, possibly to distract Radha from experiments. 

Is this related to why you're two people in one body? 

Permalink

We were born with three actually but Book moved out. Most people are born with one soul to one body and only switch to two in one when they find someone they want to move in with.

Permalink

Huh! Why'd he move out—unless that's too personal a question? 

Permalink

'Cause he's a boy.

Permalink

—oh, right, that makes sense. Different magic, different solutions. Personally I just spend as much time transformed as I can, but I guess if I was sharing my body with a girl or two then they'd be uncomfortable. 

Permalink

Yeah. So we went to mixers and he found a boy who he liked the look of who also liked the look of himself and wasn't hoping to leave his elbows behind in a cohabitation or whatever so now he lives with Lightning.

Permalink

Is that working out for them? Sharing a body isn't a thing people tend to do here, except a few people who're born that way like you were, so I've not met anyone who does it. 

Permalink

We actually do it weirdly! Normal people - and Book now - only have one of them conscious at a time.

Permalink

Your way seems more useful! I think here it varies, different people have different brain configurations. 

Permalink

Does everyone in your world cohabitate? Radha asks. 

Permalink

Not little kids - well, not little kids in rich cities where they can sleep under a dreamward. I think in poor places they have to move little kids into each other right away.

Permalink

...I have too many questions. She shakes herself.

What's a dreamward and what does it have to do with cohabitation? 

Permalink

A dreamward keeps this one kind of demon out? Most demons you can keep out with, like, walls, but there's a kind that goes through walls, and it only eats sleeping people. It doesn't go through a dreamward. So if you have a dreamward, you have all the kids sleep under it, till they're old enough to pick their own cohabitors, so they aren't stuck with random people forever. But if you don't have one, well, babies sleep a lot, you can't really just have all your babies out in the open falling asleep all the time.

It sounds like your world has...kind of a lot of problems with demons. Be neat if we could send some mages over to help you deal with them, when we figure out how to send you back.

Permalink

That'd be neat. We were with Book and Lightning and got split up when the demon started chasing us.

Permalink

That sounds rough. We can hope they're okay—and if the demon got them, they'll just have been moved somewhere else like you were, probably?

Permalink

I guess? I'm pretty sure most demons just literally eat you! But I guess klaonso are weird so maybe this is another weird kind. I wish I'd known how to kill it, most of them have weaknesses but I don't have them all memorized. Probably if she were telekinetic like Radha she could have at least trapped it under something long enough to regroup with Book, having magic besides just troporting would be cool -

Permalink

And suddenly Holly is aware that she does have other magic, as of right now!

It feels like she doesn't have very much of it—it comes in amounts—and most of it is locked away where she can't use it right now, but there's a sense that she can change both of those things if she wants to. 

Permalink

Oh whoa a thing happened?!

Permalink

What sort of thing? —I'm not seeing anything you don't send, that's not how my telepathy works, but you can show me the memory if you want.

Permalink

Holly attempts this.

Permalink

Oh, you got our kind of magic! That's awesome! I wonder what your powers are. 

Permalink

Oh cool! How do I tell?
