Do Anitami undertakers want to take this dreamed-up train to Calado and help them out, she'll pay. Does an Anitami doctor want to go help the neighborhood that lost both theirs.

Dimension is mostly just if I can convince the government and if there's a good way to keep a dimension in Calado from getting endangered by all of the monster-filled dimensions. If you're not 19 then I'm not making any promises but I might be able to work something out for you. I think they're planning to stay five years but they're not publicizing that because then people might be tempted to just wait them out. Maybe ask our reds about that, they say 'yes sir' and 'yes ma'am' a lot but I don't know if there are a lot of subtleties also.

Some undertakers and a doctor go.

And what's up with the missing military reds.

Permalink

Monster ate 'em.

Permalink

She reports this with her condolences. 

Permalink

The reds are presumably sad but do not clutter her inbox with it.

She asks the aliens if there are added risks to doing a red dimension in Calado what with all these nearby disaster dimensions full of monsters.

Permalink

Yes.

Monsters with animal-intelligence won't typically try to leave through the edge, but could conceivably do so by accident. Smarter monsters might realize it's a means of escape. There is a nonzero chance that dangerous objects could vanish through the edge. But environmental things (weather, toxic atmosphere, lava, etc.) shouldn't leak unless someone opens an actual portal. The various pocket dimensions can be made safe and they should do that anyway since their dangers might leak to standard Amenta. Once that is done the red dimension won't be more dangerous than Amenta.

Sounds great. How do they do that.

Permalink

They're working on it.

Now that things are not an absolutely chaotic disaster they can be more careful and better prepared. The surviving Calado dreamshapers (nonblues in a case by case basis) can help them by explaining what expect or growing their dimensions such that it's harder for dangerous things to escape.

And then they can go inside the other places and contain, kill or destroy anything too dangerous. At very least they set up magical alarms to the detect if anything leaves a dimension.

(They do try to preserve things that can be preserved and check everything for safety. Are there any monster people? Do these respond to diplomacy? Any new people? Nonstandard people? Are the babies from that field of babies safe?)

People who want to adopt babies can be found for all the babies in the dimension that is a giant field of babies. Inconveniently it seems to grow new babies overnight.

 

Some monsters are people. Some it's hard to tell. There are a few non-monster people.

Permalink

Okay, as long the baby growth is stable enough they can just keep adopting. Felix still sends some witches to analyze the hell out of the local magic in case they ever need to stop baby production.

(Also, to make sure no red babies are harmed.)

 

They try their best to provide to any magically created people of any type. They clear their status with the government and figure out ways for peaceful coexistence whenever that is possible.

Permalink

They are going to run out of people who want to adopt eventually, the lists are long but not infinite and not all places will let you adopt a magic baby without paying for a credit.

Permalink

Well, they can research the heck out of the place's magic and figure out a way to surpress it.

Permalink

And if things get too bad, Felix can set up some sort of charity for magical baby adoption.

Permalink

It looks like babies won't appear in built-over bits of dimension.

Permalink

(Thank Azathoth!)

They figure out a stable supply-and-demand rate for magical babies and leave enough non-built space for that. They enchant an alert for new babies so no one is surprised by finding a baby under a cabbage.

Permalink

The waitlists empty. 

Permalink

And they build over the last non-built over bit of dimension. No more sudden babies.

Permalink

Safe to have a red dimension now?

Permalink

Go ahead. Thank you.

Of course.

And she dreams the Calado reds their territory. When she digs as far underground as she's accustomed to the territory is very determined to be ocean, with beaches and little islands; this suffices, though they'll run out of space faster than the Anitami ones. She builds lovely highrises into the cliffsides and - can the trains just run across the water since they're magic anyway? Yes they can. Good trains. She pulls off a hospital with magic healing powers, finally, and the beaches can have aggressively abundant seafood.

She tries for floating islands to get them more land area. Kan's dimension has floating islands. She gets - three, one of which has really really low gravity, one of which is determinedly too tilted for anyone to walk on (and will not tolerate changes to its surface) and one which is perfectly nice. The shadows they cast on the ground below shift oddly even when the islands aren't moving.

The next city she doesn't dig as deep and it consents to not be ocean and is accordingly more conventional.

When she has them set up she invites the reds to check it out.

Reds cautiously investigate.

Permalink

Really tall towers at places where they can exit to work! Cliffside high-rises that look out on the beach! A beach! It has seafood they probably have no idea how to prepare. It has magic trains and three dubious floating islands and lots and lots of space.

How do we get up to the flying land?


I looked up how to gut a fish and it needs tools we can't afford. And boats.


It's so pretty, thank you.
