:I don't know if people trying to find me would land in the same place but I guess maybe the people at the school could tell them where to look for me. I know how to Gate:

Permalink

:Oh good! You can't Gate there, though, right, since you've never seen it before?: 

Permalink

:Right, but I could get out:

Permalink

Nod. :Well, I can bring us there once I've rested - I'd been planning to wait here until the White Winds mages were ready, but I think I'd better not, getting you to talk to the King seems more urgent. And maybe you can ask Gervase to keep an eye out for anyone looking for you, and we'll check in with him when we collect the mages they're lending us?: 

Permalink

:Yeah. Uh, if Urtho or Ma'ar - either or both of them - come for me in person is that going to be an issue?:

Permalink

:From Valdemar's perspective or White Winds?: Jisa frowns. :I...don't think so, unless they try to harm people here in the process of rescuing you. But I guess it's not just up to me: 

Permalink

:I guess I should tell Gervase about that part then:

Permalink

:Right, I guess you'd better. I, um, hadn't told him about the connection between Ma'ar and our war right now - or who Ma'ar was, even - but it sounds like maybe he needs to know now: 

Permalink

:Do you want to tell him or should I?:

Permalink

:Hmm - I think you should explain about Urtho and Ma'ar, you actually know them. Er, I really have to go talk to the other Adepts, but tell Gervase I'll come explain more about why this is related to our current war, when I'm done?: 

Permalink

:Okay:

Where are you, not-so-implausibly-old hertasi.

Permalink

Gervase is sitting by himself in a little clearing between two leafless apple trees, on a hertasi-shaped stool, with a blanket around him. 

Permalink

:Hey. Could I have a word?:

Permalink

:- Yes, of course, Azabel: His blind eyes turn toward her, nostrils sniffing the air. 

Permalink

She wonders what she smells like to a hertasi nose. :Um, Jisa thinks that one of my school friends is immortal and involved in her war:

Permalink

Gervase holds very still. :I...suppose that is not really very much stranger than your having come here from the past: he sends, finally, his mindvoice faint. :What - are the implications of this, if any?: 

Permalink

:He has apparently changed a lot:

Permalink

:I see: A pause. :Do you have any idea how to find your way home?: 

Permalink

:I should have been noticed missing, and if this is - the kind of thing I can be rescued from - then I think they'd try. Jisa wants me to go with her so if they land in the same place I did you should ideally expect the possibility. My friend is Ma'ar and the guy who leaves his artifacts lying around is Urtho:

Permalink

:Is your friend Ma'ar -: A delicate pause. :Will he be dangerous: 

Permalink

:No. I mean, not unless he somehow comes by the impression that you hurt me or are going to hurt him or something. I can write a letter for him to leave with you:

Permalink

:All right, I suppose you had better do that. He will not speak the language either, of course, that is a difficulty - is he a Mindspeaker also?: 

Permalink

:Yes. Urtho isn't though:

Permalink

:He and your friend Ma'ar would share a tongue though, no?: 

Permalink

:Right, but I don't know if I'm expecting "Urtho notices I'm missing, undertakes a project to fetch me back without bringing anyone else" or "Ma'ar kicks up a fuss about it and insists on coming along" or what:
