"Want move all buildings up. Thing around all buildings. Want move whole place up."

"The... stop air wall? Bubble? Why? How?"

Permalink

"Air bubble down is bad place. I want move up, far from bad place. Word for things down? One thing here, down, one other thing. Where is one other thing?"

Permalink

"Under?" He supplies. "A bad thing is down from you. A bad thing is under you?"

Permalink

"Bad thing under the bubble. Good people in bubble say, we can help. I say, bad thing harm us, we die. Death bad. I want move up, then Good people forget this help and think new help."

Permalink

"What is good thing under the bubble?

Permalink

Right. He almost forgot he was talking to a Good person. He hates talking to Good people.

"Water is bad there. People here want to help with water, do less bad. People are harm because they go there. Bad. I want go up, Good people help if Evil people say what do, no if Good people say what do."

Permalink

"Good people not want to go up and help with the bad place? Not sound smart not doing both."

Permalink

He wishes he'd studied linguistics, or whatever previously-impractical subject would help him learn languages more quickly. Maybe it's purely intelligence, in which case he has spent his time well by not wasting his time on it.

"No. I do no know what is up. Bad place with bad harm water is under bubble, and Good people want fix bad place because they want bad harm water die. If bad harm water die, no people die in bad harm water. But fix bad harm water is difficult, so Good people die if want fix and go to bad place."

"I agree with your point. But what needed to move bubble up?"

Permalink

"Help. People can learn magic. Good people learn some magic, but for help what Good people want. You people have different- help things, can help different. Giants can movement and fire? You can movement and combat, yes? And refugees can learn our magic, and then help move bubble up."

Permalink

"Giants magic is skill and metal. Refugees can move the bubble yes. Water-breathing refugees more that. Some move water. Some rock. Maybe some move air if that help. Many will want learn your magic. My half-sibling Temperance will. He understands magic similar how I understand combat."

Oh good. This might actually turn out to be worth the time he's already invested in it. He'd been skeptical of it, when Gulun had decided to cover the costs of meeting a prime's basic needs. Nod nod.

"Yes, thank you. I will thank you and them and we will safe them here in our bubble. If too many, we will find where they can stay. You should meet my other friends, because now you know much Aquan."

Permalink

They can head back over to Gulun, who has been passive-aggressively criticizing his approach to the situation for a week now.

"Areus, he is Gulun Commonseeker. Gulun, he is Areus."

Permalink

Areus gives his best friendly smile, not being sure if this is a situation with Protocol.

Permalink

"You understand much Aquan now, yes? Welcome to the City of Glass, Areus. We are happy to welcome you."

Permalink

"I feel welcome, thank you. Aquan is better understand."

Permalink

"You learn faster than Merves. He say you want help us? No...bad water place below the dome, but help with move the dome around the city up?"

Permalink

"Correct. Areus world needs place for refugees. Some maybe want to be here. We would like place to be more safe."

Permalink

"Good. Do you know how you came here?"

Permalink

"Not the skill I am good at. But you world different from Actana. Portal tried to go elsewhere, but it go here instead. Family is working to get here."

Permalink

Frown.

"Portal not very- common. Interesting. Maybe god help or harm you, so you come here. Good for me and for City of Glass, good for refugees. I can show you where the refugees will stay."

Permalink

"Would be good if friend god, but..." he shrugs. "Let me see refugees' place."

Permalink

He shows him. The City of Glass does not have much in the way of unoccupied housing, but there is some which is too expensive to stay completely full year-round. Large apartment buildings, of sorts, though mostly constructed out of coral and pearl.
