Her avatar is nearby. It reaches out to touch the tangle, stepping closer-
And then it disappears, along with the light.
An ocean? Not Varkalosix's domain, at least.
No curve is wrong. The world is known to be round, she read of that quite ingenious experiment with measuring the shadows of the sticks.
She tries to orient her body in relation to her domain. It is very far away, but not in any particular direction. Or rather, in a direction that is perpendicular to all others at once. What an odd sensation.
So is this some other world? A flat one? That seems the conclusion to drawn. This avatar may be unrecoverable. She could sacrifice it and remake one at home. But it would not do to be hasty. There may be people here. Potential believers.
She walks quickly, and does not tire. She makes for the docks, as a convenient place to leave the water, with people presumably already around.
There's a person walking on the water! Is it Uinen? No, it's not Uinen, you idiot, how would you know, I'd know better than you, it might be Uinen, it might be someone else, who else, doesn't look like an Elf - and Elves can't walk on water - maybe they have a song for it - you idiot - someone should tell someone, unload the ships in case she wrecks them, is she going to wreck them? No, that'd be rude, leave the ships. That's all fine and well for you, you have insurance. Uinen could sink ships any time, she doesn't have to be around for it. It might not be Uinen.
"Hello, and greetings," she says, in a voice layered with all the languages a listener knows and perfectly comprehensible to all present. "I am Ellayania, of Library and Fen. I come from a far distant realm, and am uncertain of my present location. Might one of you be able to enlighten me?"
"A new land indeed, then. In celebration of this occasion, I would offer a blessing to you each, one of waterwalking, resistance to chill and damp, improved memory, improved vision, improved speed, or improved stamina." She holds out a hand. "If you wish it, step forward and state which you desire."
Though, personally, she has always found it more convenient to place fewer rather than more restrictions on her followers.
