"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."

"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."

"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?"

"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?"

[personal profile] maggie_of_the_owls 2015-10-04 04:00 am (UTC)(link)
"Um...no. Back in a tick, I'm going to get some." Teleport!

"Well, if I move then we have a door problem..." Bella reaches into her bag and produces a notebook and a pen and writes Weird, huh?

"Hello," he says to Bella. "Your note was very convincing."

"I didn't overdo the being-characteristically-myself? You did not see in that note a caricature of my genuine personality clearly indicating duress or forgery?"
