"Anyway, I don't know what an alt is but I've never done anything threatening with daffodils in my life. I don't even know what creative uses for skin means. What am I, Cruella de Vil making a coat out of a hundred dogs? The thought has never crossed my mind."

"I admire how you manage to make such a passionate defense of your innocence while also definitely sounding like the sort of person who'd make a coat out of a hundred dogs if the whim struck."

"Alt is short for 'alternate version.' It's you but in different circumstances and/or a different universe. Usually both. Your relevant alt didn't actually use the skin for anything, as far as I can tell, just comprehensively skinned a person, healed them, and then did it again. Multiple times. It seems unnecessary."

"Wow, I don't know if that's better or worse than the Cruella de Vil option. If you ever skin me please make a cool jacket out of it." 

Permalink

"Well, if you insist."

"So much for your innocence. That was fast. Anyway, are we supposed to be designing a universe by committee here? I'm sure that's going to be tons of fun."

Permalink

"You are supposed to be designing a universe by committee! Within certain bounds. I have the authority to veto anything egregiously stupid, although if something is a bad idea but would, strictly speaking, function, then you can have it."

"You know, I considered the possibility of a loving god, and a shitty one, and none at all, but somehow this was entirely outside what I imagined death could possibly lead to." 

Permalink

"I would apologize, but I have no control over the objectionable parts." 

Permalink

"What do you have control over?"

Permalink

"If you want to do something the rules I was given don't cover, I get to make judgment calls." 

Permalink

"What sorts of things do the rules you were given cover? What sorts of things don't they?"

"There's a list of basic mechanical choices, and then you have more or less free-form control over various non-mechanical aesthetic details, but sometimes those details border on interacting with the mechanics, or someone wants to customize something nobody was expecting anyone to bother customizing." 

Permalink

"Ooh, unexpected customization."

Permalink

"What kinds of things have people wanted to customize?"

Permalink

"--Well, there was one girl who wanted to have the same set of parents again." 

Permalink

"You can do that?"

Permalink

"If you want anyone in particular from your world reincarnated into the new one, your new world's start will have to wait until everyone thus selected has died on their own. And you can't delay your world's start without the consent of both of the other two."

She turns beseeching eyes on her companions. 

Permalink

"Fine by me."

Permalink

"We'll see."

Permalink

She purses her lips. "Well if she agrees I want my siblings and my half-siblings' mother. And not my parents, at all. Please." 

Permalink

She makes a note of that.

"So what else—actually, no, before I ask about the mechanical choices: when you say we'd be delaying our world's start, does that mean our world starts when we enter it? There's no history before that, or the history before that is all lies and false memories, or something? Normally it takes a pretty long time before a universe gets to the point where people are having romance plots in it, I'd think!"

"The history before that is all lies and false memories," she confirms.
