"Northern mountain range. I actually think - I am not sure and it seems like a very provocative thing to say when unsure, but your - lifebonded - in my world Leareth died in the war, and, uh, he sends pieces of him back but not the whole thing, not exactly - Telumë is a later incarnation."

"Gosh. And there isn't a me running around?"

"No. Not a hole in him either so - 

- I am mostly extremely confused."

Belrun considers this for a while.

At length she says, "I don't know why - this event where we are talking to each other here - but -

- I'm now kind of wondering if gods' Foresight involves spinning up conscious instances and seeing what they do. Or, uh, what - we do."

" - wow. 

You know, that makes sense! And also I hate it! And am now significantly more sympathetic to Telumë's war with them - wow -" 

He suddenly scowls anxiously over her shoulder. There are some people descending towards them, with swords and not entirely pleased-looking expressions.

"I know, right - uh how worried should I be about the swords there -"

Permalink

"If this is Valinor they shouldn't really know how to use them, the gods are mostly really strict about violence in Valinor, but if we're in some ridiculous corner of probability-space related to some collision of attempts by the gods to do things about Leareth or Telumë then I have much worse predictions!"

:Hello?: she attempts at the sword-wielding aliens.

Hello. What are you doing here?

Permalink

:I don't know and neither does he, we were both very confusingly and in separate places and times eaten by a monster and it landed us here and we're trying to figure out what's going on:

I see. Is he injured? 

Permalink

:He says not, he's lying there like that because he has had mind magic done to him:

Permalink

Do you know why he won't speak to me?

Permalink

:He told me his osanwë is disabled. He can talk aloud if you share a language:

He draws closer. 

 

 

He is looking at Russandol like he - knows him quite well - he is maybe crying -

Permalink

- he tries to flop over into something that's more of a sitting position. "I apologize for appearing here unexpectedly," he says in Quenya. "May I ask where we are?"

Permalink

 

" - Imladris. You -" He looks at Russandol's hands, for some reason.

Permalink

...can he lift them in a gesture of surrender? Apparently he can! "That's...Sindarin?" he says cautiously. "I don't know the place."

Permalink

"You died before it was built.

Do you remember me."

Permalink

 

"Do you remember anything."

Permalink

"I have no reason to think there were any gaps in my memory up to the Year of the Trees 1490? I guess we speculated lots of people might have gaps, from Melkor's works. It has been seven years of the Sun since then and I am pretty persuadable that I don't remember many features of them. - I don't think I died at any point."

Permalink

 

"It has been five thousand, four hundred years since then."

Permalink

 

 

"Can we maybe go - inside or something - and figure out some conversational protocol that loops in Belrun, we're being rude - how do I know you -"

Permalink

 

 

 

 

"That's a very long story. You may come in to Imladris, if you'll swear to your peaceful intentions."
