Are people too busy to help you a lot?

Permalink

I mean, not all the time, but everybody's got things they need to be doing. Especially when they get big.

Permalink

You are the saddest person I have ever met and I think probably even if they are busy they should stop that for a bit.

Permalink

We can't all stop what we're doing every time someone's sad. I'm not even a particularly sad person, I don't think, I'm just - not really in the habit of helping kidnapped children and I'm not really entirely sure if I'm doing it right. So don't worry about me, OK? Little kids shouldn't have to worry about grownups.

Oh, I'm the prince of the Noldor, my grandfather is King. 

Permalink

You are very small and very lost.

Permalink

That's why I am supposed to look out for grownups even though they are bigger than me, because they will need to be able to trust me when I am bigger.

Permalink

That makes sense for when you're at home, I guess. But this place is very big and very confusing, and it has a lot of problems that I think would probably be pretty hard to explain to you, on account of you are very small and from another universe, and if I were your parents or your grandparents I would just hope that whoever you landed on was keeping you safe and taking good care of you. So I mostly want you to focus on helping me do that. OK?

My grandfather would probably want that but that's because he worries all the time about all of his people. I think my parents would want me to learn things.

Honestly at this point she kind of expects that his parents are some kind of bizarre eccentric royal intellectuals with approximately no idea how to raise children, but even if this is a completely accurate impression, she expects that they would still be pretty unimpressed with her if she got their tiny child killed or sold into slavery or trapped in some kind of magic cage that runs on the innocence of children, or whatever.

You can learn lots of things here. Only if you stay safe and focus on taking care of yourself, though.

I will learn English and not go into the streets and take care of myself except I cannot do my own hair for formal occasions yet. 

Permalink

Cute cute cute.

I don't think there will be any formal occasions any time soon, don't worry.

Permalink

Do you wanna know a secret?

Permalink

Sure.

Permalink

It makes people really happy if you treat their parties and their dances and their celebration days and the days they present their research as formal occasions and come in all your formal occasion clothes. I can try to line up a lot of those in a row so you only have to do my hair once, though.

Permalink

Are you planning to host parties while you're here?

Permalink

Do people here not like parties?

Permalink

I mean, we do, they just seem like they might be... hard to set up. When you're small.

Permalink

They are not very complicated parties. My father says that if people could read then I could write them invitations and even though they cannot read he likes it when I write invitations. When I bring the invitations I say what they mean so people know even though they cannot read. Then everybody comes and we sing songs and run around the gardens.

Permalink

I guess if you meet some friends you can invite some of them over and... go to the park and sing songs. Maybe. 

Assuming they don't have to immediately flee the country or anything, but she supposes if they do then wherever they go will probably also have people and parks, so.

Permalink

So far I like all of the people I have met here quite a lot.

Permalink

...who else have you met?

Permalink

I have met you.

Permalink

I... guess that one person can still be all, fair.

Permalink

Also someone smiled at me while we were waiting for the elevator to let us in.
