…well, they aren't the fastest moving, but this is sure awkward timing. Quickly, Griffie asks "I fly and do not look and you fight, or I fly you, which hurts, or other thing?"

Permalink

Vaal frowns, considering. In the one case he can harvest the jelly, in the other he finds out more about being flown by Griffie but also this hurts somehow.

The chuchus bounce very approximately toward them, blinking innocently.

"You can fly me if it will leave me capable of walking to Rito Village or if you fly me to Rito Village."

Permalink

"If I hurt you with fly I fly you to Rito Village a other way."

Griffie attempts to grab and move Vaal out of range of the Chuchus, fast. It's like being moved by a whirlwind that is trying to be careful but pretty bad at it. Plausibly about as bad being hit with a club by someone who isn't a particularly skilled combatant but did manage to connect.

Vaal lets out an undignified meep and then starts laughing.

They come into view of some bokoblins camped out on a tall platform atop a hill, who stare as if trying to figure out what they're looking at and whether to shoot it.

Permalink

"Should I tell the bokoblins I want to know why they work for Ganon so I can know if I want to?"

Permalink

"Yeah, totally."

Permalink

Air elementals can yell pretty loudly. "I want to know why you work for Ganon so I can know if I want to! No fight?"

Permalink

This does not result in shooting. A couple of the bokoblins quietly confer about whether this is a trap or a trick while another one just goes ahead and answers. "Ganon is great! Ganon resurrects you if you die and kills other people so there's lots of room."

Permalink

Griffie is making a Face, which may not be obvious even to Vaal because clouds are not that great at faces.

"What do you want room for?"

Permalink

"Too many hunters go hungry. But not since Ganon destroyed Hyrule."

Permalink

"Do you think if Ganon stops wanting you he will kill you?"

Permalink

"No, he'd let the Hylians do it."

Permalink

Yeah, this matches with eir preexisting Ganon model but doesn't feel very informative.

"Thank you! Do you want to say more things or ask me things?"

Permalink

"Okay. What do you want from Ganon?"

Permalink

Honesty that starts a fight is acceptable, and probably morally obligatory for this kind of exploration.

"I want to help people and animals. When I say 'people' I mean bokoblins and Hylians and others. I do not know if Ganon does that."

Permalink

"Ganon helps bokoblins all the time. Help Ganon help bokoblins. Hylians suck, they kill bokoblins, don't help them."

Permalink

"Hylians say, 'Bokoblins suck, they kill Hylians'. I want to help both. Like more food for both people so people need less space."

Permalink

"But killing them is - "

The arguing bokoblins break off their argument and one of them interrupts. "Look, shush, you're doing it wrong! Great cloud spirit, we serve Ganon because Ganon makes us more powerful. Power is the best because you can get whatever you want. You are saying you want things. So you should serve Ganon too."

Permalink

"I will think about helping Ganon. Thank you."

And now can Vaal and Griffie pass without fighting?

Permalink

Well, not before Vaal has managed to climb the hill and sell them some bananas, but at any rate the bokoblins aren't shooting.

Then they can go.

Permalink

And once they're back out of plausible Bokoblin hearing range, Griffie will quietly speak to Vaal.

"I not like what bokoblins say about Ganon. But I will talk to other people who work for Ganon and not say 'I can stop trying to learn about Ganon from people who work for Ganon now'."

Permalink

"I've known bokoblins who had better things to say than that but you'll get more out of talking to a lizalfos or a wizzrobe."

Permalink

"Thank you. …it is a mistake to help a person for power if you want power to do a thing and they want help to fight that thing. I think you know. But I want to say anyway."

Permalink

"Unless you have reliable evidence that you're vastly smarter and better informed. I don't know, it's often a mistake to help someone, but I don't think a world where people did it less would make me happy."

Permalink

"To help someone for helping them is not to work for someone for power."
