"I think it's okay to be depressing when depressing things are happening." Pause. "But we will get out of here. Somehow."

Permalink

"Yes," she agrees, smiling. "We have too much magic to not eventually figure out a way. We're smart people."

Permalink

"Exactly!"

She smiles at him, and goes back to eating.

"So how did you get here? You've heard my bizarre, literature-based transportation, but I assume you had something different."

Permalink

"I just - woke up here. I don't know what happened because it happened while I was asleep."

Permalink

"Ah. So it's my transportation method we'll probably have to reverse engineer for our no doubt clever escape. Good to know."

He laughs.

She smiles again.

"The book will give us answers, or it will rue the day it dropped me here."

Permalink

"Yes. Good."

Permalink

"Possibly it will give us answers and rue the day it dropped me here."

Permalink

"Even better."

Giggle.

"I - haven't decided when to start the bookly interrogation. It's kind of intimidating. Do you have a preference for how long I take to get around to it?"

Permalink

Shrug.

Permalink

"Yeah. I think at least not today?"

Permalink

Nod nod.

"It'll probably be when I get annoyed with the mystery and can't stand not attempting to interrogate the book for its secrets," she predicts, sagely.

Permalink

"Well, that sounds like a pretty good way to decide when to interrogate something."

Permalink

"Thank you, I think so!"

Permalink

He smiles at her.

Permalink

She smiles back, of course.

"I'm glad we get along," she says, softly.

Permalink

"Yeah, it's... good."

Permalink

"Better than hating each other. Could you imagine? Drawing a big line down the middle of the wasteland, 'This half is yours, this half is mine...'"

Permalink

He giggles.

"That would be so bad!"

Permalink

"Yes. Grumpy fence building, territory disputes - especially if the wind disturbed the line in the sand, what if it eventually got eroded away entirely? Chaos and a lot of bickering over which rock counted as a landmark for the now nonexistent line."

Permalink

"This way is much better!"
