The shorefolk twitter skeptically.

"You can go to places that have them and see if any of them look like things you want."

"Tireh says there's going to be a portal in a while and people might come through wanting to listen to poetry or something and that we could go through there and look at their things too."

Permalink

"Yep! Then you can make up your minds about literacy."

Permalink

"A couple of people learned the thing. They seem to like it okay."

Permalink

"I should ask my alts how they convinced Elves to adopt it."

Permalink

"I'd like to know that too," Tireh remarks. "Can't have been the usefulness for songburning."

Permalink

"Might've just been 'a new art form why not' - and might have taken a century, Elves're - very Elves - but I do think I'll have them send you a summary."

Permalink

"Thanks."

Permalink

"Thank you for teaching me the language! It's beautiful! And so unique!"

Permalink

Flap. "I'm glad you like it."

He beams at her and heads home.

 

An hour later she gets a crystal ball note from the Luster Fëanor - I put labels on everything. Made a couple thousand of them, stuck them everywhere I could, so people noticed them even if they didn't bother reading them. Whenever one got damaged I made a new one and eventually some people were willing to help me with that.

That would probably work better if we had such a thing as an indoors.

Permalink

Probably. I couldn't laminate them but you could laminate them.

Permalink

I'll think about it but it's probably not going to get attention fast enough to suit shorefolk.

Permalink

Attention's not really the point, just accustomedness, but they're your people.

Permalink

I think it might be the opposite of progress if they got used to ignoring writing...

Permalink

You don't think they'd even recognize it?

Permalink

My beach would, maybe.

Permalink

I expect it'll take hold over time anyway, if that's any reassurance.

Permalink

Sure. Just really slow.

Permalink

That's sometimes how things go. The language is very pretty.

Permalink

Thanks.

Midnight thinks his dad would like me fine, what do you think?

Permalink

He'll like the language! I expect he's upset that he has to be chaperoned to go visit his family, and he regards the peal as fundamentally selfish and malevolent for that and other reasons, but I doubt it'll come up if you don't bring it up.

I am not totally sure Midnight noticed I'm a Bell. I think he did eventually but he didn't say.
