"Forever is a very long time but on the other hand we've got a serious surplus of Maitimos at this point and most of them are starting out a couple strides ahead."

"And yet you haven't -"

"No, I haven't."

"Is there anything you want from me?"

"Well, I'd say 'no', but yesterday I would have said 'no' and it turns out what I wanted was for Theodore to throw you into a dragon pit. So who knows, maybe you'll surprise me."

 

 

And he turns.

Mirelótë and Rúmil escort Pocket back to her mother.

How did you ever find out?

Karen saw Findekáno with short hair. She didn't know it was remarkable, and, paradoxically, remarked on it. He had a cover story but it was inadequate - head injury - it passed to the humans, who probably didn't think in terms of 'if you burned half your arm you wouldn't burn the rest to make it look symmetrical', I think a human with catastrophic hair damage would just - even it out - but Mingling noticed he was lying and said so. I followed up.

He's still a Maitimo. He wants what Maitimos want. So I didn't spread it around - everyone would have hated him -

I think it will help that he stopped. And, in its own way, that Theodore threw him into the dragon pit.

- yes, I can see how that might. Since there are people who wouldn't have done that but would have resented the fact the advisable thing to do was nothing. Do you think Theodore reasoned that out or just -

I don't strongly expect that but it wouldn't stun me, he's acquitted himself well in other situations recently...

They've grown up fast. I suppose humans do that.

Permalink
Yes they do.

Valar grow up slow, but thanks to you we've now got hundreds of them acquitting themselves well as well.

And they keep coming in handy!

I'm so proud of you!
