here is a door

And now this door is not itself any longer, not quite.

"Makes sense. Now I'm curious what would happen if I tried to force it, I'm strong enough to bust the door down if I wanted. Not going to test it, though, so I suppose it's moot."
"The back door to the club has been hijacked by a completely different bar. That talks with napkins," Chris observed. "Do you have any idea who did this?"
"It seems to be random. And done by the bar itself. In several different universes. On that note, this is Bella, she's from a completely different universe, it sucks, we were hoping you could magic something that would help."

"The place could use the help."

"Well, what kinds of help does it need? Is the problem political, ecological, social or something else?"

"Our vampires are evil and our demons are numerous and also evil."

"Oh...dear. I don't have anything in my repertoire off the top of my head to combat vampires, it doesn't usually come up when you work for a Queen Bitch Vampire. Not sure what's good against demons, I didn't know they existed..."
"Their vampires have a plethora of weaknesses ours don't," Gloria assures her. "And their 'demons' don't correlate to anything that exists in our world as far as we can tell. She also mentioned something about translating ancient prophecies, some of which are apparently in Sumerian. I don't suppose that little charm you put on Hepzibah's that adaptable?"
"...I don't think so, but I could try..."

"Sumerian is an example. They're in a lot of languages."

"Do you have anyone who speaks those languages, by any chance, and just want to lighten the load? The language spell I have relies on copying a language out of one person's head and into another's. It's how...how much are we telling her about Hepzibah?"
"The beans have been pretty thoroughly spilled."
"It's how Hepzibah speaks fluent English instead of struggling with a language completely unlike any that existed when she was all the way alived. Or not where she could encounter them, anyway, I have no clue how closely English is related to whatever proto-Latin was around at the time."
"English is Germanic, dear."
"I literally could not care less."
cross_and_bow: (h ~ okay)

"My Watcher has... some knowledge of some of the languages, so if I could copy him that would be nontrivial."

"I have no clue what a Watcher is. How hard would it be to get him? I have spells that can help with transportation, if that's relevant."

"I mean, I'd have to hold the door, but if you can teleport him..."

"I can teleport to him, and then teleport back with him."

"Alternate universe transit, what fun. How does this work?"
"You come in here, I close the door, Bella opens the door, and it points to her world."
"Alright then." Chris steps inside, nodding politely to Klaudia when she sees her. Gloria closes the door.

"What did you say this fellow's name was?" Chris asks, stepping through the door. She makes a face. "And where is he right now? Ick, this really is not a nice place, is it."

"It's really not. Sorry about the mess. His name is Rupert Giles and he should be at home."

With a twist in space, she vanishes.
And reappears outside a house.
She knocks on the door.

After a little less than half a minute, it opens.

"Yes?"

"Hello. My name is Dorothy Christina Archer, but I go by Chris. I'm a witch from a different universe which is currently connected to yours via a magic bar that my boss and also someone named Bella found. Apparently you know languages that it would be helpful for me to copy into her brain?"

He has to take a moment to process this.

Then he says, "...And how would you go about doing that?"

"Magic. Do you need technical details?"
jellyinthemix: (⑪ oh dear)

[personal profile] jellyinthemix 2015-10-04 03:43 am (UTC)(link)
"I would very much like a clear idea of what my part in this process is meant to be."

"I teleport you to the magic bar, you consent to having the contents of your head accessed for this one specific purpose, I copy it into my head, I copy it into her head. My boss explains how our universes are different and yours sucks, probably."

"Have you any assurance that she genuinely sent you?"
