A certain person has been considering art. He changes the decorations in and around his little house on a regular basis. The theme of the day is beautifully decorated circles. He lays them down and destroys them, in various substances. Metal, lace, stone engravings, dyed rugs.

Someone with large, leathery wings and a tail has suddenly appeared in a very decorous darker-stained circle on a lightly colored wooden floor.

"I did not expect that," he says, in one of his rather ridiculous number of languages.

"I'm afraid you're redundant to me, at least inside my little bubble." A chair appears, he sits. "No, I meant I did not expect to accidentally summon a type of being I've never seen before. I'm Destin, by the way, nice to meet you."

"Very little is dangerous to me here. I enjoy changing my decorations daily since I can't go see interesting places as easily as I'd like, and woodstain patterns are one of the things I felt like today. A demon, you say?"

Destin stands and the house surrounding Cam obligingly disappears. They appear to be in a lush valley with the ocean to one side. The city down thataway does not seem to be using 23rd century technology. There's a railroad track leading up to the now houseless spot where he and Destin are.

"You're extremely durable, you can instantiate large quantities of matter, you are not limited to a fifty-foot bubble like I am, and that's all I can tell about you without risking invading your privacy. Today is shaping up to be a very interesting day, it's delightful."

"North of Marseille, France, Europe, Earth. Unless that's not the answer you're looking for? I've never heard of summoning things, and you weren't created by another god, so you must be from a different universe entirely."

"I can attempt to return you home if you like. I hope you don't mind if I start my daily gifts while we talk. Food for the hungry and all that." Sealed train cars start appearing on the train tracks, moving downslope.

"I create matter and send it to the city. Sometimes they send sick or wounded here, and I heal them. Or those with unusual wishes or desires come visit me, like the man who wanted to be a woman a few months ago. I may as well help them, since I can. They send artists and musicians and poets and inventors and so on up in return. Some gods just scare all the humans away from their domain, and that's not interesting at all."

"More or less, yes. I could leave, but if I'm hurt outside of my domain it could take decades or centuries to coalesce."

"I'm afraid not. If you leave the bubble, I could no longer stop you if, for example, you decide to set that lovely city on fire. I don't like binding people's behavior, at least not without their permission, but you're potentially far more dangerous than anything I've met in the last millennium."

"I'm not condemning your character, I'm not saying you're going to hurt anything. But you could, is the point. You could destroy the entire planet. I'll not risk that without an extremely compelling reason. Even gods can only scar the world for a few dozen miles. If you don't object to a reversible binding of nonviolence, then I can allow you to leave. Alternately I could try to return you home."

"I do apologize. I'll make the binding as loose as possible, but you will no longer find it possible to deliberately harm or place at risk any person or their property, or to take action that will plausibly lead to harm of a person or their property, or to make large scale changes to the environment of Earth. When you are no longer in this universe, it will expire. I'll risk some lesser mischief rather than spend time tightening the wording. Is this binding acceptable?"

"There we are, then. The boundary is just there." It's marked in red paint.

Nothing obvious happens when he crosses the boundary. The train cars stop appearing, and the train they form slows to a stop as well. Some people at a station down the way are working on them.

"I don't suppose you have interesting things from faraway lands you could show me?"
