Do you need something before we leave, or can we just start flying?

*sighs*

We've been resting for a while now. I'm ready to get back to the Oracle.

Molly, darling? Could you be a peach and go ask that scruffy fellow with the glasses over on the bison skin if he wants me to make him feel better for a little while?

*giggles at your alarmed look*

Oh, relax, silly, I don't want to eat him! I mean, true, there is a little sin there, but there's so much yucky remorse! It's like someone took your favourite food and poured a seasoning you absolutely hate all over it! Ugh. Regret's a spice that'll spoil anyone's dinner.

Anyhoo. I don't think whatever you've been giving him for that nasty burn is doing the trick, because he's smarting something awful, and it's rather distracting.

I can't heal him, but I can make him sleep through the journey so he won't feel anything. I would ask him myself, but he's sick, and I rather think that would be going back on my dib-dib, don't you?

*delighted*

Oh darling, you are so spectacular when you're fierce!

Just between us girls, though? Frankly, in terms of diabolical sustenance, you all smell horrendously boring. Bland. Dull-dull-dull. Souls like a loaf of dry Wonderbread and a pack stale crackers. *arches eyebrow over at [livejournal.com profile] thepunygod* Well. Except for that one. He could add some spice to my pudding any day of the millenia...

*snaps out of reverie*

Anyway, darling, if you're anxious to get the dragons up in the air - and I know I am - it would really be so much easier just to let me make your little friend sleep. Otherwise he'll be waking up, getting jolted and jostled at every wingflap, and I can't think that would be very good for him.

And as for a price? Well, I fully intend to enjoy every single moment of my very first-ever dragon ride, and it would be so much easier to do that without a bunch of yucky human pain and suffering buzzing around me like a pesky old fly.

*idea* Oh! How about this - you can be chaperone if you like? Watch me work my wonders; make sure the dib-dib is followed to the letter of the law? Seeing as how you're the keeper of my pledge and all that. What do you say?

Ooh dear.

Molly, poppet, I'm afraid I might have to touch him just a little bit, if that's okay with him.

*chuckles*

You're telling me.

It's not so bad, though. Once you get used to it. Sure, there's monsters and deserts and people who dunk their biscuits in water instead of tea, but there's also bacon and eggs and books and maps and warm soap and water and gardens in the spring...and, er, textiles...

...and people who look out for you. They may not be perfect, this lot, but they're loyal to a fault. You're lucky to find that even once in your life.

Say, we might be able to find some of your relations when we get to Mount Axis. I reckon you'd have plenty to talk about, being all - what'd you call it? - corporeal and that?

All this starting and stopping, being and doing! What is pain? What is sleep?

If other colours have also leaked out, we must go together. Take me there!

*scurries up*

Pardon me, Hugh poppet; I couldn't help but overhear - I might be able to help you understand a little better.

*confidential whisper*

Don't tell Molly, but when I made Archie sleep, I might have maybe eaten just a teensy little bit of his pain. Not my normal cuppa, you understand; always gives me indigestion.

Anyhoo, there's probably still bits and pieces of the souls I ate earlier rattling around in my innards, too. Love and hate and loyalty and betrayal and sleeping and eating and waking up to fresh coffee in the morning...

It probably wouldn't be permanent, if you'll pardon the pun, but some of their experience might...transfer.

*holds up two fingers in invitation*

What do you say...worth a try?

SPIDER *BIG* SPIDER *VERY BIG* SPIDER

Er...well...

*tries hard to speak without squeaking in fear, which is difficult in the presence of a demonic arachnid, and also when trying to whisper to your own article of clothing*

I'm not at all certain. In my experience, dealings with spiders never end well. And it might be quite a lot to take in all at once...most of us spend our whole lives learning to deal with these things. There's some as say ignorance is bliss.

Then again, my granny Adamanta always said that ignorance is an open door to an early grave.

Perhaps...perhaps if she showed you a bit at a time? Instead of all at once?

But I honestly can't say. I suppose it depends on how badly you want to understand corporeality, and how much you're willing to risk to do it.
