"Depends on how far along in gestation they are. But once there's a brain, yes."

"Awkward. Still, your birth control probably doesn't destroy planets. Any joy on the rest of it?"

Permalink

"That's the only one that's reliably doable without magic at all. Healing is pretty easy and does way more than just infections, pest control is--well, sometimes you discover the hard way you left a loophole, but it can be done. Gates I'm pretty sure can be done in theory but every mage I know teleports instead."

"...that's better than nothing but not as good as gates. I guess if we have disposable planets anyway we could keep using gates and chuck them into the disappearance points if they got overgrown."

Permalink

"If developing gates is important I can probably convince Kanimir to do it. He's eight hundred years old and the best mage I know of."

Permalink

"Wow, eight hundred, how'd he swing that?"

Permalink

"Turned into a vampire. Vampires were invented by some mage some thousands of years ago, you get one by taking a human and putting a lot of vampire blood in them, and they don't age and they're nocturnal and they drink human blood."

Permalink

"That's weird but okay."

Permalink

"It's pretty weird. But you can't do that kind of magic in the afterlife, so his hanging around this long is useful."

Permalink

"Why can't you do magic in the afterlife?"

Permalink

"Um...sort of for the same reason you can't see the stars in the daytime. The afterlife is made of magic."

Permalink

"...in a useful way or just in an obstructive one?"

Permalink

"Oh, definitely useful. You can get from any place to any other place effortlessly and block people you don't want to interact with and you don't have to deal with any kind of biological inconvenience and you can read any book ever written..."

Permalink

"That does sound nice."

Permalink

"Our god has limited power over the earth, and she makes mistakes, but her heart's in the right place." 

Permalink

"Can you do evac at all, or will that have to be our magic?"

Permalink

"We can probably do it. I'm not sure of all the logistics off the top of my head but it certainly ought to be doable."

Permalink

"Okay, that makes the order of operations less urgent to juggle."

Permalink

"Yes. Okay, I'm going to call some people who are better at logistical math than I am, and they'll ask you questions about your planet's population distribution while I grab some magic people and start on the terraforming and/or pocket dimension problem?"

Permalink

"They'll be able to magically speak Senserke too?"

Permalink

"Yes, all of the people I know who I would grab for logistics are angels--that's a kind of divine being created by God who are made of the same kind of magic Heaven is and I use, they can do the same language thing I can."

Permalink

"Convenient. Uh, at some point I should send someone - I currently only know how to send people, not unaccompanied objects - to my world to tell people that my spell worked so they can redirect efforts on that end appropriately."

Permalink

"Okay. What kinds of things would it be useful for that person to be able to do?"

Permalink

"Speak Senserke, though carrying a letter would do in a pinch. Find my colleagues and tell them I made it and found help."

Permalink

"But, like, going through gates doesn't cost destroying-things magic such that I should make sure they can teleport or anything."
