"I mean, sure, eventually, but we still don't really know what we're dealing with? There are references in those books to all kinds of institutions and organizations and greater evils which cannot access this world and - we don't want to be making waves before we know what's out there to come after us for it. Killing things is gonna be fine, there are lots of things killing things out there. Something elaborate -"

"Should wait, yeah. But when we are ready for it we'll want to have resources."

"Well, okay. I probably can't do priest school on account of I heard the word 'school' in there."

Permalink

"I can do it."

Permalink

"No. - same reason as Moryo, opportunity costs," which is transparently a lie to everyone, but what exactly the lie is covering for is apparently discernible only to Maedhros, who nods curtly.

"How sure are we that holy water won't burn us? On the same principle as the Silmarils, I mean -"

Permalink

"Burning evil things is not a general known property of holy water but yes, we should check that. They have it in basins at churches."

Permalink

"The principle with the Silmarils is that a hostile actor specifically cursed them to do that, there's no reason to expect it to generalize."

Permalink

"Well, if we think this religion is Eru's - reconciliation with Man, or something -"

Permalink

"I don't actually think Eru hates us."

Permalink

"Seems like the kind of thing we'd find out when attempting to become his servant. Do you want to -"

Permalink

"Religions have lots of singing. Hymns, and so on."

"If you wanted to nominate me for this you could've just said so. I don't like the vow not to marry. The other one lets you marry?"

Permalink

"Yes. You might also be able to renounce priestliness to marry, I'm not clear on that, do check before you jaunt off to the Ukraine to do something you could do right down the road. I assume you're not planning to marry any time in the next several centuries."

Permalink

"As far as we know there are no women in the world."

Permalink

"Can you do it if you've been married before -"

Permalink

"Catholicism doesn't have any teachings on what dying and then being resurrected millennia later does to a marriage but it's Eru who gave them their rules in the first place so I can't imagine you'd ever not be married under Catholic law when you are, in fact, married in the eyes of the giver of that law."

Permalink

"I said I'd do it."

Permalink

"Don't embarrass us."

Permalink

"I don't think I will. I like God. Can I really do it right down the road, if I promise not to marry for the next couple of centuries -"

Permalink

"Yeah, you can. About a hundred miles from here. It'd be convenient, you could bounce the texts and lessons and so on over for us -"

Permalink

"And it's just marriage that's prohibited -"

Permalink

"You're going to have to look that up yourself. I think a lot of other things are at least frowned upon."

He sighs artfully and tragically.
