"A bit, yeah."

Tommy has gotten distracted jumping around. "Weren't we supposed to be giving a tour?"

Permalink

"Right! Yeah. This way?"

Permalink

This is an incredibly jumpy culture.

He follows them.

Tommy turns off the path and to the right pretty quickly and starts heading towards a white building with purple windows surrounded by a slightly larger stone perimeter marked out on the ground. “CHURCH PRIME, BABY. I built it did you know, or, well, Dream and I built it, but mostly me, because I’m the coolest. And nobody can kill you when you’re on the holy land ‘cause it’s blasphemy, innit.”

Permalink

“Hey, I was there too! I helped!”

Permalink

“I did most of it though.”

Permalink

“Sure, but— oh, sick, my old house is still around here! I didn’t realize nobody got rid of the ruins.” (His old house seems to be a perimeter of cobblestone with some blocks and furnaces floating in the air.)

Permalink

"Those are-- unusual ruins."

Permalink

“…What else would it look like? It got blown up, not mined out.”

Permalink

... "Where I'm from, ruins usually fall down." He is not going to touch the casualness with which people's houses explode.

Permalink

Weird.” He sounds fascinated. “Wait, so like— Tommy do you have any sand? Or gravel, gravel works too—”

Permalink

“I have… sticks.”

Permalink

“Whatever, okay, I can get some later to see if it’s like that. Sand and gravel falls. Oh, and anvils! Anvils fall. Most things don’t. It sounds really inconvenient to be from somewhere where everything falls, though, you wouldn’t be able to have caves or tunnels, you’d have to just dig down if you wanted anything and didn’t want to die of stuff falling on your head. That’d suck. …Would you even be able to have houses— I guess scaffolding falls and you can build houses with that—“

Permalink

"If you support wood or stone, that doesn't fall, you just-- can't have floating furnaces."

Permalink

“Wait, so is it that it doesn’t fall if it’s connected to other things, or is it just that only furnaces fall? Because if it’s the first thing, there’s gotta be a way around that, right? If you can build things out and not just up then things can attach sideways and have that be enough support, you’d just have to get two blocks attached sideways to each other. But no, someone must have thought of that, so there must be a reason why that doesn’t work? Hm.”

Permalink

“Tubbbbbooooo c’mon man I want to show him L’Manberg. We can talk on the way.” Tommy: possibly physically incapable of standing still? It certainly would fit the presented evidence.  

Permalink

"That's how rooves work? They are attached to two walls, or columns, and that supports them."

Permalink

“Right, they’re still attached to the ground, I’m trying to figure out why them just being attached to each other isn’t enough for them to stay up without the columns, since it’s not just that things fall if there’s nothing under them— does everything have to be attached to the ground twice or can you build like this?” He builds an impromptu ¬ shape. 

Permalink

"If it does not extend too far and is made of a strong enough material, yes."

Permalink

“Do you know how far it is for different materials?”

Permalink

"Unfortunately, I'm not an engineer. I couldn't say off the top of my head."

Permalink

“Aw. Okay. …I am definitely going to have more questions later but I can wait until later.”

Permalink

"I would be happy to answer them. It seems like a fair trade."

Permalink

“Aw dude if you’re out here looking for fair trades you are going to get so scammed.”
