They can't work out how to parameterize for "gods", not in a time frame that seems reasonable when the Valar might notice them at any moment. They settle for habitable and starfaring.

The first place they land is technically habitable and presumably starfaring. However, it is also apparently mid-war-of-some-kind and even Fëanáro can't figure out what the un-osanwëable hulks of metal are shouting at them in time to comply and those things they're holding seem to have already done disastrous things to the landscape. They jump again and now between Fëanáro's rescue mission and the escape attempts they're out of mana sufficient for jumping between them.

He bounces her his view, which makes the similarities more pronounced; for instance, that there in the distance is definitely an Elven city built into a cliffside.

 

The light is still gold and silver blending in the sky, but distinctly different.

"...the sky's different, the city's - shinier? - but I can't think of what about the spell would find us a... very similar patch of grass..."

"...well these Valar aren't mad at us yet and we can jump out again tomorrow."

Permalink
"Yeah, I suppose we can camp out here and sleep - someone should stay up in case -"
Permalink

"I will."

Bella looks nervously in the direction of the city but tries to get comfy on the grass.

"We'll see anyone coming," he says.

 

An hour later he sees someone or something coming. It's a shiny metal bubble that maneuvers quite unlike a bird, but flies.

Bella has managed to fall asleep.

And ideally wouldn't be woken, since they need reasonably solid rest to get their mana back. But - 

Bella? I'm sorry - looks like someone's coming -

Permalink
- up she gets. I don't have enough to jump us, how long has it been -
Permalink

Only about an hour - bounce, since she probably can't see it yet - do you think it's dangerous like the kind in the other world -

I don't know how to tell. If it gets closer I could tell if it's a mind...
Permalink

We should've hidden...

Permalink
I could've learned to do invisibility if I'd done arcana in college but I didn't, I didn't touch it the whole time -

And as a result you are alive and that is very very good, it wasn't worth the risk - most metal things can't be war machines, people shouldn't get crueler with time, it doesn't make any sense -

Permalink
Is there actually anywhere to hide? Maybe it hasn't seen us yet.
Permalink

We could try to make it to the trees but they wouldn't help much if anyone's seriously looking -

Permalink
And we might be more noticeable if we move.
Permalink

Yes. 

The thing approaches, rapidly. It's large.

Permalink

It's within a mile -

Permalink
There's somebody on it. One person. I think an Elf.
Permalink

He relaxes slightly. So we just need to be unworthy of the note of the Valar and it'll probably be fine, Elves wouldn't - attack - can you distinguish an orc -

Permalink
Never tried - they are a little different but more like an Elf than anything else but I guess that could mean orc, shit -
Permalink

The rumbling of the approaching metal thing wakes Fëanáro. He blinks blearily at them - then sees the thing - 

 - wow - uh, is it coming at us -

 

 

It definitely appears to be coming at them!
