That sounds good.

 

He calls.

He tells them that Fëanáro is safe and happy and that they are in fact in another Arda where he will have a little more space to explore himself, hopefully. They don't have plans to return but they'll keep in touch. Fëanáro's parents are very upset.

Good or bad idea to consult local Finwë and Miriel on handling this situation? ...Mostly a question of whether they'd alert the Valar.

Permalink

"Maybe our alts would know."

Permalink

Mirelótë's expert opinion is that Finwë might in fact do something like that, but since his Fëanáro ran away for a while too he might have useful input if they wanted to risk it anyway.

Permalink

...I am not inclined to risk it anyway, are you?

Permalink

I'd sooner try it with Miriel but this one was busy being dead while their Fëanáro was away.

Permalink

Maybe we can let our set talk to the adult Fëanáro?

Permalink

That might work better.

Permalink

They talk. The adult Fëanáro offers to video the small Fëanáro so his parents don't miss his childhood; this goes over reasonably well.

Permalink

That is a good idea. Bella starts to map out the steps of a project to get videos onto crystal balls.

Permalink

He will delightedly help.

Good, then it will be faster. Does the technology on Endorë match if they wind up settling there?

Permalink

Endorë is not as advanced but still a perfectly nice place to live.

Permalink

Right, but is she going to need to redo all the spells if she wants to put videos taken on Endorë on crystal balls.

Permalink

Oh, format conversion between Endorë video cameras and Valinor ones will be easily worked out now that there's more transit back and forth.

Permalink

Cool.

Now that they have interdimensional earwires they should catch up with Isabella, who is not yet expecting them and will be pleasantly surprised.

The oracle Alleluia gave me a very funny look but Jovah says magic is fine and nonviolent technology is fine and contact with nonwarlike peoples from other stars is fine. I've started with the scrolls.

Permalink

Oh, that's excellent news.

The current Archangel is reasonably good at his job but I have some hope of being the next one; I'm not sure if it would make more sense to wait until then before publicizing anything broadly so I can coordinate it.

Permalink

I suppose since you have an afterlife and a way to prevent accidental children it's not as if horrible things are happening while you wait. A slower rollout probably makes more sense. 

Permalink

I suppose I could be very presumptuous and see if Jovah has picked Linus's successor for sure yet but he almost never does it this early in someone's tenure.

Permalink

The competent Valar might well be willing to make Linus and everyone else immortal, does that complicate things?

Permalink

Archangels don't reign until they die, they reign for twenty years.

Permalink

How long are your years?

Permalink

They turn out to be similar to Endorë years.
