"Though not nearly as annoying as the non-futile kind, granted."

"Yeah. Pity the futile racists can't just have LARPs on their own time without crowding the concordance for peaceful postal service daeva."
Permalink

"It's really annoying that I have to route my letters to my sister through Limbo and Fairyland!"

Permalink
"I've played with ideas for getting the futile racists out of the way long enough to establish a different precedent but haven't got anywhere, doesn't help that I don't have anyone on the Heaven side to coordinate with."
Permalink

"...Well, I do. We should correspond."

Permalink
"Sure. I'm Cam, nobody spams 'letter to Cam' yet."
Permalink

"Edie. Although, ah--what languages do you speak? There's this asshole I think is conjuring my mail, so I've got this code worked out..."

Permalink
"Lots -" He picks his computer off his belt, calls up a list.
Permalink

"Oh, that's convenient, I also speak most of those. Got summoned by some linguists to teach 'em demon languages."

Permalink
"Huh, I got summoned by some linguists once, but they kept me gagged and just had me confirm translations."
Permalink

"Sucks. Was that before or after your parents moved to Limbo?"

Permalink
"Before her, after him."
Permalink

"Definitely sorrier than baseline you were gagged for that one."

Permalink
"Yeah. Picked up a lot of languages from the linguists though."
Permalink

"They're convenient like that!"

She explains the code. It's vaguely Feanaroish in style.

Permalink
Which Cam does not recognize since his Fëanáro has just been using the one-time pad. "Clever," he remarks anyway.
Permalink

"Thanks. It was actually mostly my current summoner's father who came up with it."

Permalink
"He's a cryptographer or something?"
Permalink

"He's a something, that's for sure," she snorts.

Permalink
"Hm?"
Permalink

"He's lotsa kinds of genius. He speaks enough languages for the code to work with him, he invents like Da Vinci on the best stimulants known to Man or Daeva..."

Permalink
"Nice."
Permalink

"And he learns languages like a child in a candyshop, it's adorable."

Permalink
"Yeah some people just really like 'em. I've been doing machine translation to patch what I didn't get with my summon, I don't pick up languages that fast the long way."
Permalink

"Oh, I've just been patching that with getting dismissed and re-summoned."
