It's pretty relaxing. She gets a lot done.

At the end of it, Leareth is tired but not exhausted. He's very ready for snuggles and an update on Belrun's day.

"I'm about halfway done with writing up the case study on those microbes that eat teeth."

Permalink

"You know, until you brought that up I had never actually asked myself why teeth rot! One would think they could find an easier food source." 

Permalink

"I know, right, leave our teeth alone, microbes."

Permalink

"Has your research found any ways to get them to leave teeth alone? Aside from 'be a Healer', it has been remarked before that Healers tend to keep all their teeth into old age." 

Permalink

"The case study doesn't get into that but I have people working on that."

Permalink

"- Unfortunately I think it is probably not the sort of problem our god will be advantaged at solving." Snuggle. "I love you." 

Permalink

"I love you too. I guess I'm not glad tooth decay in particular won't be easy for the god but I'm glad there will still be stuff to do, you know?"

Permalink

"Mmm. Yes, I do know, I think." 

Permalink

"You think?"

Permalink

"I suppose I have mixed feelings about it. It would be good, right, if all the problems were solved just like that, and - also I would not know what to do with myself and it would be such an adjustment... It is mostly not very worth dwelling on, though, since this is only the first step of many."

"You have lots of time to pick up more hobbies as the burden of the world gets lighter." She kisses him. :Like this one, does this count as a hobby?:

Permalink

Awwww. He kisses her back with enthusiasm. :What a good hobby. I look forward to having more time to engage in it:

It's very convenient that literally the most productive thing Leareth can be doing between now and tomorrow morning is rest and relax and cuddle and kiss Belrun a lot, this is a lovely thing to spend the rest of his evening doing. 

Permalink

And in the morning back to work on the god. What is for Belrun a lovely vacation is for Leareth more like a business trip.

Permalink

It's a really weird sort of business trip, that mostly involves being in trance thinking about math for long blocks at a time and then getting way more downtime and cuddles than usual. 

Day two is a bit more delicate than day one. Leareth sits on the side of the bed, mentally preparing himself. :Belrun, I am on a conscious level very confident that we can do this correctly, and that if we make a mistake we will notice at the first checkpoint and start over, but - I am scared. Can you hold me and say reassuring things or something: 

Permalink

She wraps her arms around him. :It makes sense to be stressed out because this is huge, but you can do huge things and you will do this huge thing and it'll be great:

Permalink

:Thank you: Leareth takes a couple of minutes to notice how much it makes sense to be stressed, and then decides that reasonable or not, it's annoying and he would like to put the stress over here, and take some deep breaths while he snuggles, and then he's calm. :Love you. See you tonight: 

Permalink

:See you!:

Permalink

Through the lifebond is: calm calm calm satisfied calm calm slightly stressed relieved calm calm good... 

Permalink

She will ask him what the nervewracking part was later.

Permalink

At the end of the day of casting, which goes a candlemark past the planned finish time, he heads straight for their room and flops onto Belrun, not saying anything for a moment. 

Permalink

"Hey. Had a dicey moment there?"
