"Should I borrow a dreamshaped communicator again or set up a time for an audience?"

Permalink

"I work better in person but if a communicator would be significantly more convenient I can compensate."

Permalink

"I very much doubt Imliss will mind. Idaia might prefer not to travel - she's also now expecting a child -"

Permalink

"Oh. I wouldn't have naively expected our species would be compatible that way.

Is she staying in the interdimensional bar?"

Permalink

"Our species probably aren't - at least, there're none attested - the alternate universe version of me is a magic Elf, they look like us but are inexplicably magic. She is staying in the bar but considering raising the children here, as I understand it, because the bar does not have other children."

Permalink

"Yes, I was wondering. Would it be better to send you dreamshapers to work with you and academics who want to learn from you, who have or are going to have or want children?"

Permalink

"Depends how well you think you can screen them. A malicious person with access to Milliways could do a lot of damage and we are not clear what use of the bar constitutes misuse and will get us evicted, no one's ever tried to use it for mass improvement of the galaxy before. An arrangement in the town they lived in - that's where the door they can open is - and communications with the bar might be the best way to balance convenience and security."

Permalink

"Assuming she's willing to forgive them, I agree with you."

Permalink

"Can't speak to that. Might depend how they react to the news of what really happened."

Permalink

"I assume moving the door somewhere with less negative associations is infeasible?"

Permalink

"...could just build a rail line directly from the door to somewhere. But doors seem - stubborn - and as I said we don't know what uses of Milliways will not provoke its mysterious but active landlords."

Permalink

She nods. She sighs, again. She's been doing that a lot, lately. "Do you want me to identify some good candidates for the backup plan so you can meet them and filter, just in case?"

Permalink

"I would appreciate that very much."

Permalink

"I can think of a few people off the top of my head, when would it be good to start?"

Permalink

"You're lovely, you know that? Ah, any time."

Permalink

First person on her list was one of the successful communication experiment people.

Permalink

Cool! They want to hang out with Elves and possibly a hybrid kid?

Permalink

She is sort of indifferent to the idea of Elves as opposed to humans but is super excited by the idea of doing new and unprecedented science to magic with the philanthropic science people.

And responsible and not likely to be subvertible by Midnight -

Permalink

Responsible like "can be entrusted to definitely not forget where she left things if given something important" maybe not, responsible like "will not abuse power" yes.

Probably subvertible if and only if she isn't warned about him.

Permalink

They will definitely do warnings if inviting anyone. He thanks her.

Permalink

He's welcome!

Next couple are a dreamshaper and a municipal planner who's really interested in what kinds of cities you end up with when you have populations in the billions.
(It's a marriage of convenience. They're friends who both wanted a child and were getting old enough that putting it off was starting to look less and less feasible and didn't have anyone better to do it with.)

Permalink

Have they seen the embassy -

Permalink

They have seen the embassy and the municipal planner could probably reverse-engineer something off it but it's much more useful to be able to study the principles from sources that know what they're doing.

Permalink

They don't have city planners immediately on hand but they could definitely ask the demons for whatever they needed.
