"Got caught, got fewer necklaces than that for my trouble but also got some other goodies, they are now asking about life expectancy when they classify new worlds and giving people on them ways to contact them."

"Could've gone worse."

"Yup."

"They're smart, and like thinking they're good. It's enough to get by with. How'd you meet Nelyafinwë?"

"Dropped in to find out why there existed Flat Elves who were not being invited to help with the immortality necklaces getting rolled out faster. My world was far down enough on the priority list that I probably would've been dead if I hadn't gotten out."
Permalink

"They don't trust us. Did you find a way around that?"

Permalink
"They've improved their surveillance options since they last visited the question, but mostly I just aggressively questioned their priorities-that-would-have-let-me-die until they stopped arguing with me."

"Did you guess what things were for? Were you right? What things wanted most -"

Permalink
"What things did I want most. I guessed some of them and other stuff was completely bewildering - buildings were obvious when I saw them, currency took me a while especially since most of it isn't visible in Space, all on the chips, but as soon as I got the idea it was brilliant - water fountains were weird, it seemed like a sad way to compensate for not being near the sea - I'm lucky people thought I was an angel and assumed all features of my appearance were deliberate because I showed up in sealskin and barefoot, shoes were confusing, shorefolk don't walk a lot - I wanted everything to be written down, I've only taught a handful of people at home."

"It's mostly on computers here. You might have done better landing in a flat Arda - except the wings -"

Permalink
"I would've gotten noticed a lot sooner if I hadn't landed somewhere there were angels."
Permalink

"Your magic can't do concealment?"

Permalink
