He lands in rock. It is horribly uncomfortable and crushes the experimental worldleaper and would definitely be fatal if he weren't indestructible but he is so he just tries to teleport home.

 

It doesn't go.

 

He tries teleporting a million miles from here in an arbitrary direction, because he can figure out from there what's wrong about going home.

 

...he is still in rock.

 

What the -

 

 

 

He tries again, and again, and again, squishing and bruising himself as far as he can be squished and bruised every time, and then he concludes that it looks like he has found a dimension that is entirely made of rock and should go home only he can't go home -

- he teleports himself and all the rock around him to somewhere a million miles away. Then he goes back. There's a hole in the rock. Okay. He does that several times until he has a reasonable amount of space.

Now he can curl up and cry, so he does that, and he teleports rock away while he does. And puts in some air and some furnishings and makes it a pretty rock cave that he apparently can't get out of, because that's easy and sort of reassuring.

 

He tries again to go home. It doesn't work. Maybe this dimension prohibits a teleport out?

It's technically risky but doing it once isn't too risky ...he makes a worldleaper, jumps. Lands in vacuum, like normal. He beams at the vacuum. Vacuum is lovely. So much better than infinite rock. And can he teleport back to his rock cave?

...he can. And from his rock cave to the world with vacuum, and back - okay, so the problem isn't that this dimension prohibits a teleport out -

- the problem could be that he's not adjacent to Warp. Jumped twice, somehow, while playing around with the prototype worldleaper. 

He wants to light everything on fire. He makes gasoline everywhere in his rock cave and makes a match and strikes it and the cave doesn't even turn into an awesome fire because there's no air. 

 

He scowls and makes the cave bigger and does it again. Now everything is on fire. He feels better. 

 

It is a day later when he conjures for complete written works of endless-rock-universe's Bell.

Here's some, not that much. Handwritten.

How much doesn't matter, there's a Bell, there's a Bell, even if it's some kind of strange rock-dwelling Bell, everything's going to be okay. (He tries for a him. There isn't a him.) 

 

Scale model of Bell and Bell surroundings?

She doesn't appear, but a cute little cottage in a garden by a waterfall does. It falls apart when conjured; maybe parts of it are magic.

Permalink

And no sign of endless rock? Maybe someone carved out a really big cavern in the endless rock but that doesn't explain the waterfall -

 

- invisible, inaudible, cottage -

Permalink

The cottage is cute. It is sized to be comfortable for people about Epic's height. There are people there, yea high or shorter. They've all got wings - bug wings or weirder, nothing with bones in. They are tending the garden.

Permalink

And no endless rock. He's delighted about the 'no endless rock'. 

Is the Bell visible?

Permalink

Nope, must be inside.

Permalink

...he walks inside.

Permalink

The door doesn't open.

Permalink

Then he teleports to the other side of the door.

Permalink

Then he is inside!

He can't hear anybody in here. Like, not even breathing.

Permalink

...is this a match for Bell surroundings? He makes a scale model in his hand. It'll be visible but there's apparently no one here.

Permalink

Yup, this is the place. The Bell must be in another room and not breathing. Or inaudible, like him.

Permalink

...he goes room to room -

Permalink

There she is! Her and another winged person and a lot of blood!

...It's definitely "inaudible".

Permalink

...he doesn't know how to safely drug this species - 

 

- pop he takes the other winged person to his rock-cavern thing pop back he touch-heals the Bell - we need to get out of here do you know a place we can go -

Permalink

No response.

Permalink

...the Bell is invisible and inaudible with him and - this place looked like it had sky - they're in the sky a ways higher - she's so light he can actually hold her and stay in the air, he flaps his wings and does that - 

 

- do you know a place we can go - 

Permalink

There's a twitch of her facial expression, that's all.

Permalink

okay he will worry about that later he needs to find a place to take them - a hundred miles over is a valley, the valley looks pretty, now they are in the valley - he should keep going, he doesn't know what he's in the middle of - a hundred miles from here is an impossible floating rock island, teleport, a hundred more miles to the edge of an ocean, teleport -

She is very light in his arms and she trembles ever so slightly and the healing spell didn't do anything about the blood that was already out of her.

Permalink

Well he can make her a house with a bath once they're somewhere that is not entirely rock or a place where they torture Bells. Which he is exercising tremendous restraint in not feeding into a black hole, that would be wrong, the Bell would not be impressed with him, the Bell is going to be okay, the Bell is definitely going to be okay, except what if it's like Kib where the Bell needed other Bells to be okay -

 

 

- hop hop hop hop -

 

- he can't conjure for short winged people, they're too magic, so there's no way to check if there are any in the area except by looking, but he doesn't see any - 

 

- he will make a lot of soft Valian grass and set the Bell down.

Permalink

She doesn't move.

Permalink

He can't think how to cancel her inaudibility - it's probably a completely different kind of magic - 

 

- "Uh," he says, and then starts crying, and then takes a couple minutes to get it together. "Um. I swear I am not doing this and haven't done it and will teach you how to block it, but I can read minds. It - seems like you can't talk? Because of the evil magic? So if you can listen I can teach you how to block my mind reading, and then once you can block it you can send just things you want me to hear, and then you can tell me what is wrong with this place because we need to rescue everyone else, too -"
