azure blossom knows her world is flat but wasn't expecting to actually fall off it

Turns out escaping the fae is not so simple as just talking your way out of captivity. Not that Azure Blossom would say that was simple, exactly, but, y'know. Compared to charting a safe course out of the Wyld... It kind of was. At least then she had basically a defined objective and general plan of attack. The ground wasn't continually jerking itself around out from under her. On purpose, and with malice aforethought. Not that she can prove that, but she knows. She knows.

So! She's going to take a little break from this and have a chat with her new friend the rescued Dynast. Surely she's feeling appropriately grateful to have been saved from a fate worse than death.

Sure, she's so grateful to trade being the captive of some soul-eating demons to being lost in the Wyld together with a different soul-eating demon.

Ahem.

Probably the sarcasm isn't befitting her station or something, but. This has been a crazy time.

"Do you think we're still in the West?" she asks instead, squinting at the glass their tiny jerryrigged sailboat seems to be sailing on. Which is, at least, less weird than the last thing they sailed over. Or the noodle storm.

...Probably best not to think about the noodle storm too much.

"We are, technically, still sailing. So the concept of water is still being gestured at. Which means we are not entirely beyond the Pole's influence. So. ...Maybe?"

"Northwest still counts as west."

"Well, hopefully it counts as leaving."

"What, you have important business to get back to?"

She looks away, scowling.

"You're not arguing~ because you know I'm right~!" she singsongs.

"Just keep telling yourself that."

"I will. Because it's true."

Humph.

"You're cute when you pout, you know."

- Eep.

Giggle.

"Should I not have said that out loud?"

She mumbles something indistinct.

"What was that? I couldn't quite hear you?"

Permalink

"You're a pest." That doesn't sound like what she was mumbling earlier.

"I think technically the word is Anathema now."
