"Mhmm. I'll ask him later and see if he can tell anything."

"They're - they're not baptized because I didn't know what to do or if water's even safe for them and -"

Permalink

" - oh gosh, yeah. You can do it yourself but I don't know about the water thing - it doesn't take very much but I wouldn't want to hurt any of them - "

Permalink

"It's probably fine I just didn't know what I was doing and I felt like - I killed most of them already what do I think I'm doing -"

"You didn't mean to. It was so - I have no idea what I'd do if something like that happened to me, especially if it'd happened when I was still living with my parents - probably panicked and run away or something, I don't even know. But it's - you had no idea what was even happening."

"I didn't - I'm not sure it was a sin but they're not less dead."

"Yeah. I'm sorry. I'm so sorry."

Hug. Hug hug hug.

Many, many hugs.

Hey, Karen.

I'm kind of in the middle of a thing so I might randomly stop answering in a bit here. Also if this is a bad time on your end you can of course tell me to call back later. I assume you know all about Emmy's thing.

Permalink

Yes, I'm sorry I didn't tell you but that was up to her.

Permalink

No, no, I get that, I just want to check whether your telepathy is any good for distinguishing baby people from baby not-people, and also ask whether you know Alex's brother and have contact with him such that you can ask him about - man, I don't even know, whether there's anything a person should know about baptizing alien lizard babies. If you don't then I can ask Alex to ask him but if I do it that way it'll take a while.

We can't tell baby people and baby not-people apart, unfortunately. I know Alex's brother and I can ask him about baptizing alien lizard babies - you know, it should be possible to check if it was in retrospect a valid baptism, if nothing else that'll be some information about whether they are people-lizards.

Permalink

Oooh, yeah, that should be possible. We might need a vampire or something, though, unless you have other ways of telling. ...I guess you have vampires.

Permalink

Yes. We tried breeding vampire mice for this but we didn't get anywhere.

Permalink

I mean that's not surprising, animals don't have the same kinds of spirits that people do. It's good that you checked, though. Thanks.

Permalink

Of course. Do you think Michael should come out here?

Permalink

I'll ask Emmy later. Thanks.

 

"OK. It's gonna be OK. You still wanna go to mass? I think we should, it's really even more important when things are going terribly."

Permalink

Nodnod.

So they go to Mass. Mass is pretty good even when she can't receive. 

After Mass she grabs a bulletin and looks up confession times, just in case Emmy wants to do that before next week. Their options are early Monday and Wednesday morning or Saturday afternoon.

"Maybe we could go together? I'm kinda bad at going places by myself sometimes."

Permalink

"That'd be good." Slightly suspicious sniffle. "Are you really?"

Permalink

"Yeah. I can do it if I have momentum or if someone's depending on me or if I have, like, a sacred duty or something, but sometimes if I just have to do a thing for me I get stuck."

Permalink

"I used to be pretty good at doing stuff if it was important." Sigh.

Permalink

"I don't know that I do stuff because it's important, exactly. It's - I'm not sure what it is, exactly. Some kinds of things are just easier than others."
