You squeeze your hand over the device, pressing a droplet of slime out of you. It falls with a soft "plip", and the lady takes it back. "Just a moment longer."

"What makes the snail core slow compared to the other two options?"

"Tis a snail," she replies simply, "They take their time. 'Never hurry, never worry,' as they say. The snails say that."

"Should we tell her we were a grand slime?" you ask Humphrey and Mirrow privately.

Mirrow
&& I don't think there's really any reason to hide it from her. She seems like she knows what's up, at least more so than we do. Maybe she can help us figure ourselves out? &&

Humphrey
## I say it's worth a shot. The worst thing that could happen would be that she doesn't believe us, and the best would be we get a clear lead on where our missing pieces are. ##

She stops her work and looks at you through narrow eyes. "Thou... thou'rt hardly a Grand Anything, I'm sorry to say. Thy tail, as large as it is, is barely even close to something as magnificent as a Grand's. Thou'rt confused, methinks, and shouldst hold thine tongue lest thou speak flippantly of the fallen."

You pull the cloak aside to give a clearer look at your core. "Well, what about this?" You briefly recap the past couple of days, how you woke up in a field with a sword in your chest, how you can only remember flashes of the void king standing over you. You detail the experience of finding and fusing with two of your broken pieces.

The shopkeeper is staring at you hard. "Tis impossible... not a single one of the Grands survived the Void's slaughter. Tho... Grands were known for their special healing powers... no common slime can fuse with another like they could, and tis remarkable that thou wouldst even know of such abilities. Can thou prove that thou'rt fused?"

Yep, you can prove it! Split up into your three separate slimes. Might as well introduce yourself again, as your myriad parts.

No. 1043801 ID: 10fb04

>>1043799
Agreeing with you! And if that doesn't work. I've got an idea so stupid, it might just work. We attempt to get or let the shop keep handle our core. If we're lucky, they can perhaps see some of our memories. They seem powerful enough.

No. 1043804 ID: 6e862c

Well, if we can prove it depends on if Humphrey and/or Mirrow wanna come out to say "Hi". Either y'all alright with that?

Eh. This person's opinion of you isn't a huge amount important. If Humphrey or Mirrow are willing to show, that could probably be fine, but really, if neither are up for it, just say that you don't really wanna unfuse right now.

I didn't survive I just got better.

Also yeah, split into three if for no other reason to see if you can.

You know, the shopkeep probably thinks all the Slime Titans are dead too. We should disabuse them of that notion.
>>
No. 1043881 ID: fc1eab

I am not against the split demo, but we should get a guarantee from the shopkeep first that they won't freak out and make some huge waves. This could be info that could drastically reshape the local slime hierarchy (even if that is not our intention). Just make sure they can keep it secret for the time being.

I am not the best judge of scale, but I thought that Mirrow was rather large. How certain are we that if we split, Mirrow will fit inside this room? I mean, I want to silly-dance alongside our other selves as much as anyone, but ex slimeploding someone's place of business and summoning a giant slime-dragon in the middle of a settlement is not the best way to keep a low profile.

It's silly, laconic, and accurate. It's very fitting!

Uh, Mirror would be smaller than their current combined form. Because of conservation of mass and volume and stuff. There's only so much slime available, and we're using all of it.

Are we ok with splitting up for a moment?

Humphrey
## Oh, sure, just for a bit ##

Mirrow
&& Yeah lets show her! &&

"I've never done this before, but... here goes." You close your eyes and ... you're not really sure what to do. You try thinking very hard about splitting up, visualizing your soul pulling away from itself. Humphrey and Mirrow are doing the same, and as you each suddenly grasp the concept of splitting your core-

Your fragments peel off of each other, returning to their original, broken shapes, and the three of you fall out of one another and into a heap on the floor.

"We can't remember anything about our time as a Grand," Humphrey says from underneath you, "at least, nothing outside of the part where we die."

"Thou has not shared this with anyone else?" You all three shake your heads. "Thou would do well to guard this secret. The King may have softened somewhat, but they mercilessly destroyed the Grands, and there's no knowing if they wouldst not do the same again."

"Why kill us at all?" Mirrow asks, "Did we do something to make them angry?"

"Alas, precious little is known. Even the Elsekin harbor few secrets about the Grands. I'm... somewhat crestfallen thou canst recall any of thine past. But! praps thou will remember more as you find your pieces, and if thou do, I hope thou wouldst permit me to, ahem, pick thy brain, so to speak. Would terribly love to know what thou remembers."

"What about that Candyfloss you keep talking about? Do you know anything about her?" you ask.

"Unfortunately I only know about her personal studies of magic. She left behind very little record of her nature. I have guesses, but they are just that, guesses." She resumes work on the device.

"There we go," she hands over the bright blue phone, "I'll let thee have this for free, but if you need charms, I'll have to charge you for them."

You accept the phone, and Humphrey and Mirrow gather close to look too. It's a simple looking thing, fitting comfortably in your hand. It flips open with a small window on the upper half, and several tiny buttons on the lower half, as well as a tiny slime with glasses. It beams up at you.

"Hi there! Welcome to your new spellphone, friend! I'm running a snail flavor of JellOS. I can take notes, cast spells, track your location, and all kinds of other neat things! Would you like to name me?"

"Oh uhh..."

((What do you want to call your new phone?))

Definitely ask about how exactly we pay for things and what exactly is for sale. And for advice on what kind of stuff we should buy, given our current inventory.
Also, ask for any information on the locations of any petrified, broken, or somehow surviving Slime Titans.

Also: "Well, for what it's worth, I think I shared a dream with the King where he told me that killing the Grand Slimes was 'in error.' Notably didn't apologize for the Titans, though, so I think there might have been a mix-up when he set out to take them down, getting us caught in the crossfire?" Show your sword-core. "We got a medical opinion on this already, but do you think you can give some insight into the magical implications of having a void sword fused to my core?"

No. 1045276 ID: affcb9

shell flavor. We can savour its utility, it can be our saviour if we get lost, It can be the saver of our notes, if we get bored we can stick it in our "mouth" and savour its flavour, and if we stretch pronunciation a little we can call it "Savoy" for a vaguely realish name.

Do we actually know if we can only fuse with ourselves? If this researcher wants to pick through our mind, then that would be easier from the inside...
