Someone else who got snaked is here!

...so presumably at least one of these kissing men is a past snake victim!

Oh my god Lúthien put us outside this building please.

Pop.

I don't know why that keeps happening!!! It's not like people spend most of their time having gay kisses -

We're not even on the same world are we -

...architecture looks Elfy? Kinda?

She blinks around. It's definitely pretty enough. The kissing men weren't Elves, though - so we can't have landed in Valinor -

Permalink
Those are Elves over there, though -

I don't think this is my world - she tries to go to Menegroth. Nope.

 

And then to the Elves, uh, hi?

 

 

Hi! 

He looks Noldorin. She's so confused. We're Lúthien and Bella, empresses of Mîr, and where exactly are we right now is this Arda -

 

No, no, he says, Arda's next world over, this world just had some problems so we decided to help. It's called Stork, and the local Arda's called Shine - there are a lot of Ardas, are you from one -

Lots of Ardas? Like - how many Ardas?
Permalink

Uh, you'd make five.

How do people normally get from world to world?
Permalink

Ordinary people don't. The King and his inner circle have a teleport for it, and the Valar opened portals between Stork and Shine and then closed them during the war and then opened them again after the war and after Elspeth talked with them. There's also worldleapers if you want to explore for new dimensions.

...Is there some place we go to, I don't know, register the existence of another Arda and my world and the one we stopped in on our way here, or anything?
Permalink

You probably talk to Kib for that, I sort of thought that was why you were standing outside his house. But you could talk to the King of Shine, too - does your Arda still have a Melkor because he's evil, you need to stop him -

Permalink
Took care of that already, Bella assures him. We actually came here in particular looking for other people who had been eaten by snake demons, we didn't know who we'd find.
Permalink

Kib got eaten by a snake! It dropped him in Shine from Stork and that's how relations between the worlds were opened up. That was eight Years ago, they've been a very eventful eight Years.

Permalink
Sounds like it. Do we have to make an appointment or is it okay to just knock, do you know?
Permalink

Should be okay to just knock, he's rehabilitating and I don't think he's too busy...

Permalink
...rehabilitating?
Permalink

He was captured by the Enemy. During the war. 

Permalink
Oh. ...but it's okay to just knock on his door?
Permalink

He doesn't startle like our King, no. It's okay to knock. He'll probably be pleased to have something new and interesting to work on.

Permalink
Okay. Thank you!

Knock knock.

"One moment please," says a smooth genderless voice from just inside the door.

And a minute later the door opens. "Can I he- ah! aha! Hello what are your names?"
Permalink


"How do you speak English?"
Permalink
"Don't, it's magic. I'm Kib, who're you?"
Permalink
"Uh, I'm Bella, this is Lúthien."

"...you're going to have to pick a nickname - come in, come in -"
