He hands them some food without thinking about it. “I think Tommy invited me to his hotel opening? But last I heard he was dead or something. Seems like it might get in the way of the hotel business. Not sure it’s true, though, might want to double check on that.”

She does not know a Tommy or anyone whose name sounds like Tommy. This is a relief.

"Thank you.

I'm... sorry for your loss, if he is dead. I know what it's like to not know.

Um, do you get new people here often? What do they usually do?"

Permalink

“Eh, sometimes. Phil and I both already knew people when we joined, I dunno how helpful we’ll be. But I can get you set up with some stuff if you like.”

Permalink

"Thank you, that would be great."

Technos: they really are the same.

Permalink

"Hope you don't mind, it's a bit of a walk." He steps through the portal.

Permalink

"That's fine."

She is going to follow him, but skeptically.

"What are these? I've never seen anything like it before."

Permalink

Techno taps lightly on the obsidian. "Nether portal." The nether: is very red. Lots of fire, lots of lava, lots of a red rock she hasn't seen before. The path Techno's following is all familiar stone, though.

Permalink

Xe is going to poke at xer soul gem a bit. Xe doesn't sense a witch, but this seems very... labyrinth-like. Also very dangerous.

This seems straightforwardly magic, though, which is interesting. She's heard of girls being able to make their own labyrinths as their personal magic, but none that just anyone can casually enter.

"Is this... a pocket dimension? Are portals like that stable?"

Permalink

"Yeah, it's stable. You've never been to the nether before?"

Permalink

"No, we just have one, where I'm from we only have one dimension. Just Earth.

... Is this Earth? Kinda cringe to not know what planet you're on, I guess. "

Are labyrinths alternate dimensions? Who knows.The nether is loud enough, and Techno's mouth not-human-enough (how does he talk without lips?) that she's having kind of a lot of trouble understanding him. She is not going to try to explain labyrinths in these sorts of conditions.

Permalink

"As far as I know, nope."

Eventually they come to another portal! This one drops them in a snow-covered landscape methodically lit up with a grid of torches. There's a house in the distance, which Techno is heading towards.

Permalink

Snow! They rarely get to see snow. They are going to scoop some up and make a snowball, not to throw but just to Hold.

Maybe two snowballs.

Other than that they will just keep following Techno.

 

Permalink

Techno observes the Snowball Holding with some amusement. To the house!

(The house: is really, really loud. There are so many animals, some of which it recognizes--dogs, foxes, a polar bear--and some of which definitely do not exist on Earth.)

Permalink

Back at the house is a man in his mid-thirties with chin-length blond hair and badly damaged black wings, dressed in what she may or may not recognize as Kisuke Urahara cosplay. He greets Techno with a warm "Hey mate." Yep, that's Phil.

Permalink

"Hey Phil. Just getting Ranboo no. 2 over here some food and supplies." He rifles through chests and ends up tossing it some 32 golden carrots and a set of iron armor.

Permalink

"Ranboo number two, huh."

Permalink

"Yep." Also a full set of iron tools. Stone's just embarrassing, he can't have anyone saying he's a bad host. ...Should he give them diamond? Maybe he should give them diamond. Definitely he's overthinking this.

Permalink

It has learned that many but not all of the people here are not human -- cool cool cool. Are many but not all of the people here genderbent?

She does also recognize Urahara.

The more pressing problem is unfortunately that it is really, really loud here. They got some of that -- their own name, Ranboo Two, and the general vibe (calm). At least Phil has human lips.

It says, "Hi? I'm, um, sorry about calling you old earlier, to me you are Phil Two. Second Phil. Also it's really loud here, do you mind facing me when you talk? It helps me not go "what?" all the time."

Also, to Techno: "Wow, this is a lot of stuff, thank you." Iron armor in Florida: super expensive.

Techno turns to face Ranboo. "...It's really not. If I gave you netherite, that would be a lot of stuff." He's currently in the process of making xem diamond armor and tools, which means the iron was a bit of a waste, but hey, whatever. He can't take advantage of low standards in a guest. (The voices whisper cute and xenia.) "Here's diamond, there's lapis and an enchanting setup upstairs. Is there anything else I can do to help you hear?"

Permalink

Diamond??? Oh my god???

"Do you all just kind of have magic here?"

It is going to poke its head upstairs to try and see what an enchanting setup is, but come right back down again. There are... so many animal noises.

Speaking of magic: she is going to detransform, this is solidly safe and she has always suspected magical girl form is more of a magic drain.

Permalink

Techno waits until they are both downstairs, so that he can talk facing it. “Yeah, kinda. Do you not? Because whatever you just did looked pretty magic to me, I’m gonna be real with you.”

Permalink

Ranboo notices and appreciates this! Also just like her Techno.

"No, no, I do have magic, my friends and I have magic, but it's kind of a... secret? There are requirements and things. Most people don't know it exists. It's not just something people talk about casually."

Permalink

“So you’re still the main character, but there’s a masquerade. A little YA, but life’s like that sometimes.”

Permalink

"I think we have to be YA, we're all teens, we're all mostly teenagers. Except Phil, she's, I don't know, in her thirties? But that's pretty rare."

It pauses. If they're talking about genre, and this Phil also cosplays...

"I don't know what kind of media you have here? I'm a magical girl. Not like Salior Moon magical girl, the, uh, other kind. Phil, she dresses like Utena."

Permalink

"Oh, pog! ...Maybe not pog, I haven't actually seen Utena!"
