"Hey Dad," says Belmarniss, bleeding somewhat, teleporting into her family's living room in their basement apartment in Absalom with a somewhat more bleeding Hagan draped over her shoulder. "Is it too soon to make cracks about your relationship to random demons I encounter?"

"Yes," says Chal.

"I will remain conspicuously silent on the subject then - this is all Mom's schnapps, where did you put my potion stash -"

"On the right. I told her it should be where you'd know to find it..."

"You told her right!" Belmarniss grabs one and dumps Hagan on the floor to feed it to him. "Hey there, wake up - I miss Fazil, Fazil would have suggested bailing out for the day before he was out of healing."

Sovi leans into the room. "Will he be okay?"

"Yes, he's just trying to make me level faster by giving me a heart attack. Hagan?"

"'m fine -" he glances around, figures out where they are. "- yeah, I'm fine," with more conviction. "Maybe we can guilt Fazil into un-retiring if we bleed on his carpet." He sits up.  

Permalink

"He'd probably just make a reproachful face at me till I Prestidigitated it." She begins to Prestidigitate the carpet.

Permalink

"And then offer us biscuits. And show us the baby." Sigh. He stands up so as to aid in or at least not further hinder the prestidigitation of the carpet.

"Let's team up with a different cleric next time. Maybe that little guy with the Iomedae symbol on his face if he's still itinerant around the Worldwound. I wanna ask him why on his face. If we go back at all. I think we should take at least a week off though. Mom won't mind if you want to crash on the couch."

"Niss, your boyfriend there almost died, I think now you have to let him sleep in your bed," coos Sovi.

"Please be warned not to cast Speak with Animals," says Belmarniss to Hagan, "lest you become able to understand anything my sister might have to say."

"I nearly die four times a day," he says to Sovi, "that's how often a cleric can patch me up if he's passable at his job. If I got to sleep in Belmarniss's bed every time I'm not sure I'd have time to do anything else.... we could animate the bed like a floating carpet, and I could shoot things from there and get shot in there. It'd be very efficient."

"Well, you don't have to sleep," says Sovi.

"Sovi."

"Oh come on."

"Don't you have exactly two cantrips to practice or something."

"Girls," sighs Chal.

"In Osirion boys only marry girls once the girls are ready to stay home and raise children, and Belmarniss isn't going to be ready to do that until she has battled all the elder gods, so we've got a ways to go."

Permalink

"I'm hoping me and the elder gods can come to a peaceful resolution," says Belmarniss lightly.

"In Osirion aren't you not even allowed to be in a room together," says Sovi. "Also aren't you chaotic?"

Permalink

"We're allowed to be in the room together because you are here supervising and making sure we will not be remotely in the mood to snuggle. ...also I might conceivably break that rule sometimes, because I am chaotic."

Permalink

"Oh, is that why she's so uptight, is it a tragic snuggle deficit," says Sovi. Belmarniss groans and flops herself onto the couch and Sovi giggles her way out of the room. Chal pats Belmarniss on the knee and then goes to answer the doorbell; he can be heard up the stairs murmuring about the neighbors' missing package he didn't get.

"Figure we should head back north? I won't pretend I'm having fun but we're making pretty good time on the levelling front. And - I'm not gonna find the thing I miss anywhere else, I wouldn't expect."

Permalink

"I do think we should take at least a week off but Sovi presents a compelling case for doing it anywhere but here."

Permalink

"We could swing by Sothis. Be introduced to relevant and irrelevant babies. - the pharaoh finally has some, reportedly."

Permalink

"Do you want to introduce me to royal grubs?"

Permalink

"You make the best faces at peoples' babies but I will not inflict them on you. I do want to see Fazil and Mahdi and say congratulations in person and so on."

Permalink

"Sure. We can take our week off there. Tomorrow when I can teleport again."

Permalink

"Are you sure you can't teleport again if you try very hard and believe in yourself, I hear that works sometimes for sorcerers."

Permalink

"What if I can and I'm off by four hundred miles, do you want to camp in the desert?"

Permalink

"Can't scare me with camping in deserts, I've camped in all the deserts. - this is admittedly comfier, at least when sisterless."

Permalink

"She'll probably go out once the sun sets."

Permalink

"Hmm. Guess if we camp in a desert you can't go look at the Starstone like other girls windowshop at jewelry stores."

Permalink

"It's terribly positioned for window-shopping, what with the lack of windows, I feel very cheated."

Permalink

"Very rude of Aroden. Maybe someday someone will stab him in the face about it."

Permalink

"I don't feel it deserves a face-stabbing. Does he even have a face, do gods leave corpses -"

Permalink

"The Starstone is itself in one telling the corpse of the gods who died slowing the asteroid at Earthfall? Also in Tian Xia they have a rat-god who they say ate the corpse of one of their other gods -- while an ordinary rat, mind -- and ascended. Of course this does not mean that gods have a face."
