Delian lifts his head. 

:Cam: 

Permalink

"Hi, Delian, nice to meet you."

Permalink

Delian briefly dips his muzzle, an oddly humanlike gesture. 

:You wanted me to try summoning? ...I understand it requires completing a small part of a drawing. I am not sure how to do that: He lifts one hoof, sets it down again. 

Permalink

"It's very medium-agnostic, being able to kick a small amount of, like, sand or something, into place would do it."

Permalink

:I could do that. Not sure if the Healers want a bunch of sand in here...: 

Permalink

"Actually, you know what will be easier since we're just summoning the same guy over and over." Cam makes a light projector and gives Delian a button to step on. "Gently."

Permalink

He will be so gentle! 

Tap!

Light appears on the floor and the fairy returns with a suitcase.

Permalink

:Hi: Delian offers politely, bobbing his head. 

Permalink

"...telepathic horse," says Ildan, nonplussed.

:There are a bunch of us here! King Randale and Savil and Jaysen and Keiran who summoned you before all have a Companion as well! My Chosen is Tantras - we should get him to summon you too but he's, er, not doing very well right now: Delian nuzzles affectionately at Tantras' hair.

Shavri, who's waiting just outside the shielded room with Savil and Jaysen - the room isn't huge - suddenly blinks, her eyes going out of focus. 

Then she smiles, and darts into the room. "Ildan! Good news - I think we found some prospective children for you to adopt. We should have you go over and meet them in a little while, once everything else over here is sorted out..." 

Permalink

"Okay - when? -"

Permalink

"...I'm not sure. Delian, do you think it'd be a good idea for us to ask Sondra about doing it - er, or Jaysen's Felar, or Keiran's..." Damn it, she's blanking on the name of Keiran's Companion now. 

Permalink

:...I don't know. I - think probably it'd be best not to interrupt any of them right now? Kellan and Rohan are going to meet them and, er, talk - I've been talking with all of them a bit -: 

Permalink

Shavri tenses. "- Does Melody know that? She was, um, hoping to talk to them and - try to help, I think...?" 

Permalink

:I don't know: 

Permalink

Shavri looks helplessly at Cam. Not that she particularly expects him to have an answer. She's just feeling so overwhelmed by - well, everything. 

Permalink

"...Ildan, how about you get me the summoning-grade names of your recommended friends and we can use those if we have a summoning emergency and you can meet a kid and find a place you want me to put a house and stuff."

"Uh, start with Shiko, I can tell everybody else to expect a summon but she's the one I'd think would be most interested in answering a summon blind."

"And how do you spell Shiko -"

Ildan spells it; Cam writes it down.

Permalink

Shavri waits until they're done with this. 

"Right. Er, you can come with me to the House of Healing and meet the children, I guess?" 

Permalink

:A candlemark from now might be a good time to check in with Yfandes about doing a summoning: Delian adds. :Now's not a good time: 

Permalink

Ildan floats into the air to follow Shavri!

Permalink

The House of Healing is busy and bustling at this time of day, and it takes a few seconds before Shavri can get anyone's attention. 

A young woman slips over from the central station to meet them. "You must be Ildran? I'm Alia. You're here to meet some orphans, right?" 

Permalink

"Ildan," he corrects, "And yes." He's bobbing up and down rather fast now.

Permalink

"Ildan, sorry. And - right - it's this way, but I should warn you, the matron of the orphanage decided to just send over everyone who meets the, er, criteria you asked for. Girls under six. We're obviously not expecting you to adopt all ten of them, but - maybe you can see who you get on with best? And I suppose we're hoping you end up thinking of some friend of yours who'd get along with some of the others?"
