home sweet home

Cam is lounging in a hanging furniture object that's sort of a cross between a hammock and a chair and leaves plenty of room for the wings and tail, feet up, sipping hot cider, and watching a documentary about the history of the colonization of Luna because he does like to keep current. Ho hum.

A sleeping human, wearing blue pajamas with a pattern of fluffy white sheeps, appears without fanfare on the floor between Cam and his - television-like apparatus.

The person remains asleep. Firmly and unwakeably asleep.

"Finally," says a voice out of thin air, age and timbre roughly matching the body on the floor. "Hi! I'm Teah! I'm a god! Do you need one around here? It kind of looks like you don't, which is surprising. Keep wanting to talk to me or I can't keep talking, that's how I work."
aeskhyne: (⑨ nobody grows up)

"This is so weird, there are practically no prayers," he says. "Uh, short version: I can answer prayers. I can do just about any kind of magic you can think of, but I have to know what I'm doing first, so I'm not so good at things it's not safe to experiment with, like brains. But I can't do anything that's not answering a prayer. The body on the floor is me, but mostly in kind of an indirect metaphysical sense; I'm awake when he's asleep and vice versa, but we pretty much don't share memories. He's permanently asleep now because he figured out he's me and apparently that's what happens when he does that. This is Hell? No wonder the place is so dead. Is there anywhere around that's not Hell?"
aeskhyne: (② all night cannonball)

[personal profile] aeskhyne 2014-05-31 02:21 am (UTC)(link)
"Random!" he says cheerfully. "Wow, I just answered the only prayer in all of Hell, some guy was stuck in a black hole. Now let's see if I can't..."

The voice trails off.

Half a beat later, it picks up again: "Okay, that's more like it. Fair warning, I might be a little distracted from now on, I found your other four worlds and some of them are a whole lot busier prayer-wise. But I can carry on a conversation pretty well between prayers; I've got practice."
aeskhyne: (③ smile on my face)

"That sounds inconvenient," he remarks. "Yeah, don't know if I can move stuff between different worlds in your bundle, nobody's wanted to do it yet, but I can reach 'em all from here, they're just - a little farther away than normal. Ooh, I got to cure dementia already, that's a new record. Hey, and if I can move stuff between worlds, I might even be able to do fast resurrection, nice!"

"I'll take a look," says Teah.

A few seconds later: "Yep, no problem, you want your house to come with you or no? Actually, if you ask me again in a few minutes I might just be able to let you move between worlds yourself. But in the meantime, I can definitely move you to Limbo with all relevant magical properties intact."
aeskhyne: (① loves to light the fuse)

It's done before he's quite finished uttering the word 'fine', with a brief faint rainbow shimmer in the air to mark the passage, although the change in lighting conditions would have been a clue by itself.

"Faster to do it myself!" the god says brightly. "I am really really fast. What's your name, anyway? Wanna be friends? I like having friends, it's handy."
aeskhyne: (③ smile on my face)

[personal profile] aeskhyne 2014-05-31 02:47 am (UTC)(link)
"Cool!" says Teah. "Mostly your half of being friends is making sure to want to talk to me every so often so I can tell you if there's something I wanna do that nobody's praying for. And chatting. I like chatting. And my half is—"

In the space between words, with hardly a noticeable pause, Cam is offered a silent and inherently comprehensible choice: does he want to be able to edit the things he creates with his demon abilities after he has created them?

"—doing you favours."
aeskhyne: (① loves to light the fuse)

[personal profile] aeskhyne 2014-05-31 02:51 am (UTC)(link)
The choice grants his request as soon as he makes the decision, without requiring him to confirm it out loud.

"Pet black hole," giggles Teah. "You're cute, I like you."
aeskhyne: (④ without any plans)

[personal profile] aeskhyne 2014-05-31 03:00 am (UTC)(link)
"Yay!" says Teah, happily.

A neatly wrapped present, in paper with a curly-swirly rainbow pattern and a shimmering iridescent ribbon, appears hovering in midair in front of Cam in a burst of fast-fading rainbow sparkles.

If he unwraps it, he will discover a framed piece of paper that shows a long list of books by title and author, with little thumbnail images of front covers, and scrolls according to his whim. It is all of the books that currently exist but which he has not yet acquired.

"Why, what were you planning to be busy with?"
aeskhyne: (② all night cannonball)

[personal profile] aeskhyne 2014-05-31 03:08 am (UTC)(link)
"You have a pretty cool bunch of worlds here."

On a whim, he appears for Cam a book containing all of the prayers he has answered here so far. There's a lot of blank space in the book currently, but it's got a solid chunk of pages filled in at the start. It has his name in Draconic on the front, even though no one in this world can read it, because why not?
