That works.

Also the dreamshaper wasn't in one of the successful communication experiments, but he has managed to get dreamshaping-healing, which is rare and difficult and almost certainly a prerequisite for resurrection.

Ooooh. How does that work?

Permalink

It's really really hard to get dreamshaped magic items that have permanent effects on the world around them that were acheived solely by magic. Medical magic items that do things like cauterize or stitch wounds are fairly simple, and emergency first-aid items that temporarily heal wounds entirely likewise, but actually getting the tissues to knit together correctly in a way that sticks is really really hard.

He's impressed it's possible. How is it done?

Permalink

It's the same principle as, like, telekinetically moving something, only on a much smaller scale?

Permalink

"That's really cool."

Permalink

"Yes. Yes it is."

Permalink

"And resurrection would work the same -"

Permalink

"I'm not sure. It depends on how you did it, probably, but in general probably?"

Permalink

"Cool."

Permalink

"It's hard to know when no one's ever gotten there."

Permalink

"Makes sense."

Permalink

He nods. "I'm glad your species has it, at least."

Permalink

"I am hopeful that soon it'll be widely available."

Permalink

"That would be nice," he agrees soberly.

Permalink

And when people are interviewed he asks Imliss and Idaia what their plans are. And, oh, the Empress would like to meet them.

Permalink

 

Idaia is really not sure that she is comfortable raising her kid in this town and teaching her that she could trust her neighbors, because, like, forgiveness aside it has been demonstrated that they are not sufficiently trustworthy. And she's not sure "you can't trust your neighbors" wouldn't be at least as damaging in the long run.

Up to you.

I want to do what's best for my daughter and I'm not sure what that is.

Permalink

Well, it's not something that makes you unhappy.

Permalink

 

I don't think I should raise her in that town, then.

Permalink

Okay. We'll put in a rail line.

Permalink

'Kay.

You said the Empress wants to meet us, are we supposed to come there, is there someone else to hold the door if so?

Permalink

You aren't supposed to do anything but if you'd like to we can find someone to hold the door and someone else to hang out in Milliways just in case.

I'm not the most emotionally competent I've ever been, but I'm barely showing, as long as the trip isn't dangerous-to-the-baby levels of bumpy I'm fine with traveling.
