So, he says to Timothy, ah, what's the story with Karen?

Permalink

The same. Or, uh, flipped, she likes girls - we have not discussed it but she's probably despairing, there was a girl she liked back home and now Quendi by all appearances don't do that sort of thing at all -

Permalink

After the war maybe Maitimo can -

Permalink

Does the volitional control thing let you turn off your sex drives or something.

Permalink

Not really, no.

Permalink

And we're agreed the war might last decades.

Permalink

I think they're presently optimistic about ending it faster.

Permalink

Do I get to say 'that's dumb' or is that exclusively your line?

Permalink

 

 

 

Do you want -

Permalink

Um?

 

...I can think of half a dozen considerations but I don't think the war ought to be one. 

Permalink

Maitimo'd be delighted, he feels badly about being traumatized. I don't think my alt would care. Karen?

Permalink

Would probably like to be apprised, but I don't think she'd mind. I - if we were confident of finding a way back in a year, or even ten -

Permalink

My understanding is that current prospects of finding a way back are 'uh, maybe someday the Valar will forgive us and then it'll turn out they can do it?'

Permalink

Yeah.

Permalink

I love him. This'd be - keeping company. 

Permalink

He nods, remembers that Findekáno can't see him. I love him. I am not sure if he knew.

Permalink

He did.

Permalink

 

He tells Karen a few weeks later.

Permalink

"- oh, okay. ...I didn't realize Quendi, um, had........ variety.....?"

Permalink

"Apparently the Valar will fix it if you ask and most of them do since it's easier but if you'd rather just be very very discreet you can."

Permalink

 

"I would wonder if I could get set up with one but on the one hand they are so very Quendi about the war and for another braids are all well and good for Miranda but I hate how my hair behaves without the potion, just absolutely hate it, and for some reason I imagine that would come up if I were set up with a Quendi and I'd be self-conscious and it would be awkward. Also Genevieve. Maybe. She probably thinks I am dead and has flirted her way into somebody else's - why did I set up that sentence to need a noun - by now."

Permalink

Hug. "There are the brand new humans - they won't always be brand new -"

Permalink

"Weird," pronounces Karen. "I don't know, maybe, ugh."

Permalink

"We can still get married but we really don't have to, here - I don't care that much what my family thinks -"

Permalink

"I would like to be ready to do it real fast if for some ridiculous reason I must possess a Silmaril for any length of time, other than that we can just say we're - being polite to Quendi social customs - since we are not in fact in a desperate wall-climbing hurry or anything."
