Elven countries now have a crime rate. They find it distressing. They mostly cope. 

Permalink

The crime is at least almost entirely intra-red-enclave, and to the extent it's not it has the air of an abused foster child testing the unconditionality of their new home.

Permalink

Intra-red crime isn't better! Worse, even, because Elves can be resurrected and can better weather theft and so on and are likelier to report things to the police. (Though it is probably politically convenient that citizens are not made worse off by having refugee neighbors). 

 

This new home is so very unconditional even if you throw your shoe at the President.

Even if you have, like, been wearing the shoe?

Permalink

Yep! There are better avenues of civic expression but you will not be murdered even a little bit. 

Permalink

Gosh.

Reds settle in. Their crime rate eventually, sheepishly, falls, although not to Elf baseline.

Permalink

Elves don't mind! Amentans have to pay higher interest rates for a loan and there is some heated debate over whether that's ethical.

Permalink

The Amentan population is divided on this amongst themselves too.

"On the whole, though, good problems to have," he says to his Peka.

"Mmhm. I love you." Snuggle.

Permalink

Snuggle. "So so glad I found you."

Permalink

"Not as glad as meeeeee."

Permalink

"Possibly not as glad as you!!! Possibly not as glad as Katin - though sounds like you were making do - but still so glad -"

Kisses time? Kisses time.

Oh good!!!

 

It takes twenty Endorë years and some Maia assistance but they figure out how to do bodies without Mandos. It takes another three to do it right.

Katin is walking and saying words in spite of her decreased aging by then! (She grows a bit faster when visiting her grandma and grandpa and aunt and uncle on Endorë. ...Aunts and uncles, Peka's parents are taking advantage of the lack of population controls.) She has been taught to say "Uncle Maitimo".

Permalink

Uncle Maitimo is confused, and then a little stressed, and then delighted. He hugs his family. He picks up Katin and marvels at how big she is and says to Macalaurë disapprovingly "you haven't married her yet?"

Permalink

"Wanted to wait for you."

Permalink

"Don't mean to wait much longer, though. Peka, love, I want you forever -"

Permalink

"Oh good me too me too -" Katin being conveniently elsewhere corralled she flings herself into his arms.

Permalink

"Yes!!!!"

Permalink

It will be such an Event! They are the best people in the world to plan a wedding six billion people will watch and so they do that.

Permalink

It is tremendous fun! Katin wants to help. What can a small child do to help?
