Michael is patiently entertaining any questions Mr. Lovegood might have.

"Nice wizard costume."

Phillip has lots of questions about the culture of the mer, especially how they raise children and what they think of the Kaiju.

"Dear, don't overwhelm him, also this may not be the best time to speak about this issue considering the circumstance we're in."

Permalink

"Alright dear, I know you're worried about whatever it is that's happened I'll try to be supportive."

"It's okay. Well, in my tribe everyone pretty much mates with whoever they want, and everyone takes care of the babies. Lots of us kids know who our mums are, but I'm pretty much the only one who knows who his dad is. Kinda obvious, really." He wiggles his legs. "And some other tribes worship the Kaiju. I think it's silly. Hey, do you mind if I get out of this dumb costume?"

"I don't see anything wrong with it, but my wife might object. The various students from her college might also be uncomfortable."

Meanwhile, on Earth, Hannah is busy dismantling the population of Earth. This particular body is waiting on a hill for two friends she made in Oregen, a former US state and AA protectorate. Her text was very insistent. And she's hoping they'll rather see her than face the nanite swarms.

A boy runs up the hill, "Hi Hannah, why did you want to see us so badly?"

Permalink

A girl arrives shortly afterwards. "It isn't like you to be so insistent Hannah."

Permalink

"Um, guys, have you heard anything about those swarms? Or the radio message?"

Permalink

"What are you talking about?"

Permalink

"No I haven't."

Permalink

She decides to take a different tack. "Scary Miracle thing happening in Australia and Greece, not important. Hey, would you two like to be Miracles?"

Permalink

"Why are you offering this now Hannah, how is this related to the swarms you mentioned?"

Permalink

"I'm not offering anything. Not like I have any say with the elixir waiting lists. Still, would you?"

Permalink

"You're being really suspicious Hannah, but if you really want the answer, I think I'd like it if it wasn't too showy."

Permalink

"Being a miracle would probably be nice yes."

Permalink

"Do you wanna hear that radio message?"

Permalink

"Is that the best way you have to explain whatever it is?"

Permalink

They're treated to a description of the apocalypse to come, involving a neutron star colliding with the sun. The message also begs the listener to submit to the Grey goo, so they can be transported to a safe place.

Permalink

"You'll get our parents too?"

Permalink

"Alright, I trust you Hannah, let's get this over with."
