a little young for that

There is a red-eyed teenage boy - or so it would seem - positively interrogating the bar.

"Redreed wine?"

Aren't you a little young for that?

"I don't actually want any right now, but you know what it is?"

Of course.

"That... is interesting." He taps his fingers on the bar. "All right - I do, actually, want a chocolate iced planet."

And he gets a little square pastry, frosting on the top, and turns on his barstool to watch the comings and goings.

A tall human approaches the bar.

He stops.

He peeeeeeeeers at Kaylo.

"You," says the human, "are excessively magical."
nonbird: (c. excusez-moi?)

[personal profile] nonbird 2014-01-13 10:32 pm (UTC)(link)
"Is the amount of magical that you are ordinary where you're from, then?"
nonbird: (9. that's how it is)

"I can't cast spells anywhere," he says. "My world's magic doesn't come in 'spell'. It comes in unique individual packages, and mine is seeing other magic. Is there a whole species of yous? With the shapes and the language and the assorted other things I'm not sure I understand yet?"
nonbird: (5. better make it good)

[personal profile] nonbird 2014-01-13 10:39 pm (UTC)(link)
"Gosh," he says. "I want to hear all about them."
nonbird: (7. I've got a theory)

[personal profile] nonbird 2014-01-13 10:42 pm (UTC)(link)
"Hmm," he says, peering at Kaylo's eyes. "Curious. Does the colour have to do with grouping? It looks like it might. It looks - subcategorical."
nonbird: (a. well hmm)

[personal profile] nonbird 2014-01-13 10:50 pm (UTC)(link)
"Subcategorical," he says, nodding. "Hmm. It's an awfully delicate system, though. Well, not fragile, but - I would be uneasy if I was walking around with a container labeled 'below here disaster' near the top and 'below here death' a little farther down, even if it was full, tightly sealed, and not prone to leaking."
nonbird: (8. nor little nor a bird)

[personal profile] nonbird 2014-01-13 10:52 pm (UTC)(link)
"Oh. Did you not know that? You should probably know that," he says. "You have an amount of the kind of magic you have, and it doesn't want to be much less than the amount you have of it or bad things will start happening."
nonbird: (d. but why would you do that)

[personal profile] nonbird 2014-01-13 10:54 pm (UTC)(link)
"Oh," says Lazarus. "...Um, okay."
nonbird: (9. that's how it is)

[personal profile] nonbird 2014-01-13 10:57 pm (UTC)(link)
"Yes, but now I've forgotten all my questions about dragons that are not specifically about the thing. - Well, I guess it's not specifically about the thing if I ask if dragons ever leak enough magic to drop dead on the spot, but it's also kind of morbid and depressing."
nonbird: (6. proving more intricate)

[personal profile] nonbird 2014-01-13 11:02 pm (UTC)(link)
"Well, that's good, I guess. I hope that continues not happening except to very old people and possibly stops happening to them somehow. Oh, another question, is there a thing that happens when a dragon has more magic than you do? It seems sort of like there might be but I have no idea what it would look like if there was."

nonbird: (1. quantities of fluff)

[personal profile] nonbird 2014-01-13 11:04 pm (UTC)(link)
"Does this person go to Milliways, and can I meet them?"
nonbird: (2. a baker's dozen)

[personal profile] nonbird 2014-01-13 11:06 pm (UTC)(link)
"Yes!" says Lazarus. "It contains a lot of magic. Which is why I was surprised that you still managed to stand out."
