>Get more drunk

Unfortunately, Jadis is busy with the game right now. She’ll top you off at the start of the next round.

>Slap your butt in front of Jadis at a crucial moment

Jadis has rigged the call outs so that you have to twist yourself in very inconvenient ways. You accidentally tickle Cookie’s nose with one of your wings and when he lifts a hand to sneeze his elbow brushes the mat. Despite all his talk of serious business, Saul is a giggly mess.

Once it’s just you and Jadis left, you unveil your bounteous angel behind when you’re sure she’s facing your back. She screams and shields herself from the holy glow.

You’ve finished the game. What do you want to do next?

>Talk to Cookie

Once you’ve made sure that a stunned Jadis has upped your blood alcohol content, you find Cookie hunched against one of the marble pillars supporting the high ceiling laden with chandeliers. You take out your notebook and start writing, a bit sloppier than usual.

‘you okay?’

Cookie’s frown deepens. “I don’t know why we’re having a party.”

‘need to give saul a good time’

Cookie sighs. “I’m sure there’s a reason for that, but it all feels fake. Does nobody care that Body is dead? That we’re dealing with gods who could kill us as an afterthought?”

You shrug your shoulders. You haven’t really had time to process Body’s death, and with so many witches and monsters and gods around you were hoping that you’d get her back.

‘were you two close?’

Cookie rubs the corner of his eye. “Kind of. We were both on the bottom of the pecking order in the apartment. I know Jadis never wanted to teach me magic, but she strung me along to keep Margot happy. And Body tried her best but I don’t think Jadis ever liked her as a person.”
You’re properly drunk now so Cookie’s words don’t hurt as much as they would.

‘sorry. that sucks’

You need to move on, but you can reassure Cookie before you go.

You're not crazy. What you feel is real and valid. This shit is insane and nobody is acting right right now, you're just trying to make sure the world's still going to be here on Monday and this party you think is helping that happen. Stay strong. Things are going to be better.

You tell Cookie that things will get better, that everything in the last few days has been insane and nobody is acting normal. You’re not sure if your empathy comes across in your hasty scrawls, but Cookie gives you a small smile and you give him a gentle side hug before leaving to find Saul.

The god is leaning against the makeshift bar, holding a bottle of absinthe. Kibble is standing next to him, face crumpled in mortification.

“You don’t like Mother? How about Mom? Don’t tell me you want me to call you Mommy.” Saul says. “Oh hey Evelyn, we were just having a little family reunion.”

“Please don’t call me any of that. My name is Kibble.”

Saul must sense your confusion, because he takes a generous swig of poisonous green fluid and smacks his lips appreciatively. “Did ya know Kibble snagged one of my mouths a few years ago? She finished a space distortion right as she was about to get eaten. One in a million chance, so you know, bound to happen. Jadis thought she was taking the soul of some poor sap Kibble had ingested, but she also got the digestion processor mixed in there and that’s how I ended up inside Body.”

Kibble nods slowly, and the lines around her eyes ease.

You still have no idea what Saul is saying. It feels like you’re missing important backstory and a college education in magic. Why would Saul awaken inside Body if most of him was in the moon?

“God stuff. Uh, how can I explain it…We’re basically a gazillion of autonomous programs running in parallel, all connected and capable of intelligent adaptation. If you take a piece out of the framework that’s keeping it static, it’ll link back with the whole.” Saul drains the bottle and burps. “So I’m not the main body, but I am myself.”

You can talk to Kibble and Saul for another round.

Right. The werewolf guy's soul were the scraps surrounding Saul, who was the thing in the middle of the scraps. As long as we can get to 23 points by round 11, we can win by having sex with Saul in the last round I think. Even though nobody has genitals afaik so I'm not sure how sex works.

Play Never Have I Ever and hope it's 2 rounds.

You wonder if that means you could get a hold of the other god by messing with an angel.

“Doubt it. Like, we plan for that sort of thing and in the rare case that the programs are disrupted, they usually adapt. Kibble didn’t become me because the piece that she got reached a steady state and kind of turned her into a, what does Jadis call them, Tim.”

“You’re not going to change me back?” Kibble asks.

“Hell no, I’d be a terrible son if I did that.”

Kibble straightens up and smiles. It looks like Saul’s words have lifted a weight off her shoulders.

You finish your conversation with Saul and Kibble and suggest playing Never Have I Ever. You assemble everyone except Cookie for the game, which will last two rounds, not including this one. What are some things that Evelyn has never done?

>Never had sex in public.

“Oooh, I’m Evelyn and I’ve had sex.” Jadis says, rolling her eyes for effect. You’re a little hurt by the mocking tone.

“Hey, I’m sure people here have had sex besides me.” Saul argues. The god was the only one who put down a finger. You make a mental note that Saul isn’t all talk. You kind of want to flirt with him.

Kibble and Margot look at each other and shake their heads.

“Was never interested.” Kibble remarks.

Margot, who seems quite inebriated, takes another swig of rum and coke. “Society puts too much emphasis on physical relationships.”

>Never skipped leg day

To your surprise, everyone puts a finger down except for Kibble. Margot jabs at your chest with an accusatory glare.

“You’re telling me that a tall, muscular, cool cat like yourself has never kissed a girl?”

You shake your head and Margot makes a noise of supreme contempt and mutters something about the straights into her cup.

>Never punched a vampire

“Well, I hope not.” says Jadis. “There’s what, like twenty left? That’s like punching a famous painting.”

>Never wondered what your tongue tastes like

Kibble is deeply troubled by your statement. “I have tasted my tongue. It’s raw meat and blood. Does that count?” she asks.

“Yes, but have you wondered what it tasted like, there’s a difference.” Jadis says.

“How can you wonder after you already know? Can you get the answer without asking the question?”

The game devolves into a philosophical debate and everyone splits up. Margot and Jadis go to a corner to talk, Kibble walks away in a daze, and Saul is wiggling his eyebrows at you. You can’t see Cookie anymore, he might have gone to the bathroom or the kitchen.

Flirt with Saul, ask about his ex, also think how you would even consider having sex in this body, are there genitals? would he just be having sex with your actual body while you watched? Would he just be making out with your beak? is sex with a god something where you mind meld and fuck in the mindscape?

You hope Saul has been having a good time and is drunk enough to start talking about his ex. You wonder if Jadis somehow magicked his alcohol content higher.

“Naaaaw, I’m a god remember? It’s more about getting into the right zone, headspace, y’know. I could flush myself out anytime but things are heating up and I need the confidence.”

Saul slings an arm around your hips. “I’ll talk about furry girl if we go somewhere…more private.” He winks at you.

You’re interested but kind of intimidated. What would sex with this angel body be like? You don’t have any genitals or even a mouth.

“It’s fine if you don’t want to. We could go over there instead—“ he points at Jadis and Margot. “—and get those two to stop dancing around each other.”

You want Saul to explain what he has in mind.

“So if we were both gods, it would be uh, a project to produce offspring by coding a new program and spending a few centuries debugging it. Not interested in that shit. If you were human, er, animal, we could fuck like normal. Since you’re not, we’ll have to get creative.”

Saul takes your wrist and gently lifts it to his mouth. He bites the tip of your finger.

“We learned earlier that angels want to get more powerful. I bet it would feel pretty good if you absorbed me.”

Do you have weird god sex with Saul? Your drunk levels will both be reset to 1 before you do.

You take your hand from Saul’s teeth. You’re interested in the offer, but you’re not sure having sex with Saul would be the smartest move. Cookie would feel horribly betrayed and you have to think about your prospects post apocalypse.

Saul slumps a little, but gives you an encouraging smile. “No problem, I totally understand and I won’t hold it against you or anything.”

Another game would help ease the tension. There’s only four of you left after Kibble disappeared into the long hallway. You’re curious what Jadis and Margot’s deal is, and Truth or Dare would be the perfect way to get them to talk.

As you approach, Jadis cuts off whatever long winded rant she was giving and glares at you like you interrupted her presidential acceptance speech to the national magic association.

“Ew, ugh, fine.” Jadis says. “I guess I should thank him for fixing my face even though he’s a clingy callous ass…HEY POPS!”

The bodyguards and servants all flinch at the shout and Mr. Lewis sticks his head around the corner. “Yes, dear daughter?” he says mildly.

“Come over here. I have to tell you something and I don’t want everyone to hear.”

The bowler bearing cat obediently walks to your seated group and Jadis gets to her feet to address him.

“Even though you and mom messed up my childhood by teaching me magic too young, and even though you’re an evil mob boss who smuggles drugs and kills people, you’re an okay dad. I know you just want me to be happy and safe and I love you.”

Margot takes a swig of water. “She’s my best friend.”

“Friend.” Jadis repeats numbly. You punch her in the arm encouragingly.

You put the tip of your pen in your useless mouth and gum at it in deep contemplation.

‘my parents are musicians’

“Oh come on, that’s not your fault.” Jadis complains. “What’s something on the level of accidentally trapping god and then choosing not to tell anyone about it?”

‘I smoke even though it’s bad for me. I don’t have a retirement plan. I like the flavor of decaf’

“Do you have any weird kinks?” Saul asks.


“That’s not weird, that’s basic levels of hot.” Saul throws his hands up in despair. “Why are you so normal?”

“Truth.” she says.

“How do you really feel about Margot?” Saul asks smoothly.

“Right. Dare.”

‘tell margot how you really feel about her’ you write. A dirty move, but an effective one. Jadis inflates like an offended frog.

“That’s what I was trying to do before you idiots interrupted me! It’s not something I want to do in front of a god!”

Margot pipes in. “You were? I thought you were talking about magic morality.”

“I was getting there, I was going to tie it all together and apologize for everything I’ve done and tell you that I like like you—“ Jadis clamps her mouth shut like her words burned her lips. Her eyes swell with tears.

Margot smiles at her, soft and fond. “I like you too.”

“That’s, w-well, that’s good.” Jadis stutters. “Great. I guess you don’t care about all the crimes against nature then.”

“Oh I do. Liking someone makes you dumb. You know, like how it took you two years to make a move.” Margot says.

Jadis takes Margot’s hand. Before they can lean in for a kiss, a tall, thin lizard bursts through the doors and dashes to Jadis’ dad.

“Angels! They just appeared over downtown a few minutes ago. There’s enough to destroy the city, what do we do?“ he shouts.

“Let’s go.” Saul says quietly. The mansion is a buzz of worried activity after word of the angels’ arrival. Margot and Jadis are holding each other in the middle of the enormous room, lost in their own world while Mr. Lewis barks orders to his men. You hope Cookie and Kibble are okay.

Saul leads you through ornate hallways, past several living rooms, and out onto a lush green yard. The sun is starting to set and you can see the pale moon on the other side of the still light sky.

You remember that the moon is very far away. How are you supposed to get there?

“You’ll propel yourself like normal. There’s a way to go really fast by compressing the space in front of you. It should only take an hour once you build up speed, I’ll show you once we’re past the atmosphere.” Saul says. He’s still smiling, but it’s forced.

You take Saul in your arms and unfold layers of interlocking wings. When you aim yourself towards the moon, you feel that ache of homesickness, and underneath, hear the cry of a trapped, starving creature that dislodged your soul in the first place.

You can ask Saul any questions during the flight. He also may need advice and encouragement as you get closer to your destination.

You pass through layers of clouds until the sky fades from light blue to empty black. Your wings are outstretched like you’re soaring, and you continue upwards until you’re among floating dust and occasional satellites.

Saul opens his mouth, probably to give you instructions, and no sound comes out. He frowns for a moment.

There, that’s better. Saul says, in your head. Cooked up a communicator module that matches yours, so now we can talk telepathically.

Saul shows you how to do the space crunch, which involves a lot of feather twitching and muscle flexing. You remember what Jadis said about magic being like painting a picture, and then you’re speeding away.

Sorry I’m so fucking boring. We should hang out once this is all over and get into weird shit. you think, in an attempt to lighten the mood.


Does your ex have a name?

Uh, no. We can call her Mary.

You can actually see the stars move around your frame of reference as you fly. There’s so many, and your sensitive angel eyes drink in their light.

Do we have a plan? Will the gods who imprisoned you get mad if you break out? Also how are we going to make new souls once Mary’s free? I hope she didn’t steal them from the humans.

The plan is we go to the moon and I link back up with my main body to talk to her. Might have to do some drilling to get to it. I don’t think anyone cares if we get free at this point, it’s hard to keep gods sealed, and humans never had souls, they didn’t need them to get their brains working. I don’t know what to do about the shortage, it’s up to her, really.

You mull over Saul’s words. Why did Mary kill all the humans then?

To make space for you, her beloved creations. Saul says bitterly. Maybe because she was jealous that I had so much fun with them. Maybe she just wanted to make me feel alone.
No. 996839 ID: b1b4f3

Well, that's something to talk about. We need to find out her motivations. It would be nice if she didn't do it on purpose... but I have a feeling gods never do anything on accident.

Well, she should know that her creations would not approve of what she did. You would not murder innocents to create new life, and you are sure that the vast majority of your kin agrees with you on that.

...I'm guessing Saul was sealed alongside Mary because they were fighting, and making a mess. Advise him to be firm with her and that she should take responsibility for her actions, but not to start another all out fight. The current situation cannot continue... but the solution can't be to just kill all the animal folk, either.
Would it be possible to fix the animal folks' bodies so they don't need souls anymore? Or transfer their minds into human bodies? Being in a new weird body isn't ideal, but people will just have to deal with it if that's the only way.

Dude, it sounds like Mary sucks. Super toxic. You don’t need her nonsense in your life.

Saul curls up tighter in your arms. Chunks of rocks are hitting you as you fly, but they don’t seem to be doing any damage.

When I found this place and started hanging out with humans, I kind of got socialized, if that’s the right word. I copied the ability to feel herd emotions and she didn’t. Gods don’t usually have friends, most of the time we’re doing our own thing in space. I don’t think she understood what she was doing when she wiped everyone out.

The sunlight reflecting off the moon is doing funny things to your head. You’re remembering Body, sleepy eyes and stitches and croaky voice, and you feel like your heart is breaking.

Maybe she can spend some time on earth to learn empathy.

No. She needs to leave once she sets up a system to sustain life here. She’ll only cause more damage. Saul says firmly.

So how would that work? Can she transfer our brains into human bodies?

Saul is silent for a moment. It’s up to her. he finally replies.

The moon is rapidly approaching. Do you have anything else to say to Saul before you land?

Stay strong. Just a little more and we can all put this suffering behind us. A brighter future for everyone.

So is there like, anything that we can do for Body? She kind of saved our life, and presumably if she didn't have to feel like shit all the time she deserves a better chance at being more than a bloody mess splattered across cookie's car

We never did go clubbing.
Should you stick around, and should civilization not collapse, we totally should.

We’re almost there. you say in what you hope is an inspiring tone. Just a little more and we can put this suffering behind us.

I hope so.

Once everything’s open, we can go clubbing, like you did with your human friends. Did they have a different name for you? I know we call you Saul, but do you have a preference?

I’d like that, and I had a lot of names. Saul works fine.

The god stays quiet while you decelerate and touch down in a deep, broad crater. Your delicate feet leave perfect tracks in the silver dust. It’s cold, but not in an unpleasant way.

Saul scuffs his new shoes in the dirt. This is a good spot. I can feel her coming already.

Wait, before you go, can I ask for a, a wish or something? Can you bring Body back? She saved me, none of this would have happened without her, and she didn’t deserve to die. you say.

Tendrils of black and white energy ooze out of the ground and start to obscure Saul from view. Crap, did he understand what you said? You try to reach for him, but your angel body is starting to dissolve in the mist.

See you later, Evelyn. you hear faintly before you lose consciousness.

You wake up on the carpet of Jadis’ living room. Someone had the decency to give you a pillow and a blanket, though the covering plus your thick coat is making you overheat. Your muscles are sore and it almost feels like you have a hangover.

The TV is running Mash Brothers, and you hear voices on the couch to your right.

Everything is going to change in a matter of hours.
Think about the last thing you want to do in this world before it undergoes a microapocalypse.
Maybe eat that last bag of chips in the fridge, use your life savings to buy some golds, and tell Jadis she's a jerk but she's your jerk. Then write your autobiography from start to end.

You sit up, ready to warn Jadis that everything is about to change. Your words die in your throat when you see Body and Margot on the couch, gaming furiously.

“Oh hey, Evelyn’s awake.” Margot says absently while Body shrieks at the screen. “We thought you’d be okay after Body got fixed but I guess they got to you last. All the angels left and animals are going to start having human babies to fix the soul shortage.”

“I have a new soul, a real one.” Body squawks. “Instead of divine depression and existential angst I just got normal ennui now. Talk about an underwhelming anime power up, coming back to life didn’t even make me better at Mash.”

Your tongue feels like sandpaper and you yawn. “So it’s been a couple days since I left?”

Margot scratches her nose. “Yup. There’s water and food and stuff in the kitchen if you want.”

If humans don't have souls...
Does that mean Jadis and cookie are going to be the last sorcerers?

The things they make and do in this life will be legend.

...Heh, maybe you should learn magic too, leave a mark on history....
Well, despite indirectly saving the world and all.

Oh and by the way, Did Saul ever return? I promised to go clubbing with him when we got back.
No. 996947 ID: b1b4f3

Haha, human babies. Well, that'll be an interesting time. And you know for sure that humans are going to try researching ways to get animal bodies since they'll have working examples of them via chemical preservation etc. Just gotta figure out the brain.

Congratulate Body on her new body, it doesn't even have scars does it?
Get some food and water. See if Cookie is there, and if he has anything to say to you now that you're back.

Also you walked on the MOON, bitches!

Despite the temptation of a cold glass of water, you get to your feet and lean across the couch armrest to hug Body.

“I missed you a lot. I’m really glad you’re back.” you mumble into her shoulder.

“Gah, your breath stinks. I’m glad to be back too, Jadis is behind on a ton of orders and if she doesn’t have me around she’ll get terrible online reviews. Even worse reviews than she already has.” Body says.

“Your new self looks great and you’ll do an awesome job with the business. Is everything really back to normal? Shouldn’t we be worried about animals dying out, or racism, or the fact that reality was rewritten?” you ask.

“Of course there are still problems, but it’ll get figured out.” Margot answers. “Saul’s been helping with the PR side and honestly we haven’t been too involved.”

Margot’s words make your heart skip a beat. “Saul’s here?”

“Coming over for dinner actually. Cookie’s making spaghetti.” Body says. “He’s a fun guy when he’s not crawling out of your chest.”
