"It's been all right so far! Sorta just got here, but it looks very, uh, interesting."

"I like to think we can beat the tenth century. ....eleventh century? I forget how you count centuries...anyway, you shouldn't hesitate to say if you need anything."

Permalink

"All right! I'll keep it in mind."

"Yep, found you someone! Her name is Aurelius and she's interested in early Earth history, doesn't want longer than six hours, is that long enough for you?"

Permalink

"Sounds great."

Permalink

"Awesome. You gotta push a button - don't do this at home -"

Permalink

"I will definitely not push any buttons at home," she says, solemnly, before pushing the button.

Permalink

A person appears!

She has very light skin and black curly hair and odd foreign features and insect wings, and she's hovering. "- huh," she says. "What language is this? Nice to meet you!"

Permalink

"That's English. I'd give you Norwegian if I knew how to do that."

Permalink

"No, no, I've got everything you've got, that's how it works! First time, huh?"

Permalink

"Yeah! Neat. So you understand this too?" she says, switching back.

Permalink

"Ah huh! Ancient Norwegian! I don't think I know anyone with ancient Norwegian."

Permalink

"Ooh, I feel all special."

Permalink

"Yeah, my friends will be so jealous. We collect them, you know. I hang out with someone who has six hundred twenty but I don't think any of them are ancient Norwegian because he only got summoned six times before Revelation - I forgot it's your first time, how much should I be providing exposition -"

"Oh, you know, I have no idea what's going on, so if you did too much we could be here all day. And I came here to see, like, pyramids or whatever. Maybe see what your Norway looks like. But I can ask about stuff if I decide I'm really confused."

Permalink

"Did you slip your minder? They're supposed to make you sit through the introductory videos. But pyramids it is." 

 

There's a whoosh and then they are flying. There's a tiny bit of wind in her hair but not too much, not nearly enough for how fast they're going.

Permalink

Flying is pretty awesome.

"I feel like I learn better by doing, you know?"

Permalink

"Knock yourself out, I guess." Oh look they're at the pyramids.

Permalink

"Wow. They're really big. Any idea how old these guys are?"

Permalink

"You bet, I'm a tour guide!" She points them out and names them - "....all built between 2589 and 2504 BC. ...that's BC the dating system, Christ was actually born in year 3, I don't know if you knew that or care or anything but they didn't want to change all the dates around once they could check."

Permalink

"I did not know that, but that's cool." She dutifully looks at the pyramids for a bit. "Well, that was cool, can I see what your Norway looks like?"

Permalink

"Yep!" And they're off again. "It's cool you're getting out. One thing people complain about a lot is that the people with a lotta culture shock don't have a smooth gradient from their world to ours? So it's dive right in or stay out entirely."

Permalink

"That makes sense. I've done the whole culture shock thing before, though, so I bet I have an easier time of it than most people."

Permalink

"Sorta got kidnapped by a power-hungry dictator with delusions of godhood and got taken back to his palace to have his babies. Still working on getting the babies back. Learned Norwegian along the way, though."
