>Ask Margot what she thinks about Jadis, good and bad

Jadis looks more terrified than when she had been facing down a furious Body. Margot leans on one hand and considers the witch.

“She’s the smartest person I know and is used to making hard decisions that hurt people, but has a good heart. She’s an awful small business owner and still hasn’t gotten the hang of spot dodging after a year of trying to teach her.”

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

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

Actually, why don't we have Evelyn do a truth or dare? Have Evelyn answer a very personal question to know more about our main character (not sure what though)


Dare: kiss the person in this party that you want to be in a relationship most with no warning or explanation. (Maybe Cookie! it was mentioned Evelyn found him cute in the previous thread, let ship em.)

“Okay Evelyn, it’s your turn.” Jadis shoots back. “Tell us the most embarrassing thing about yourself.

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?”

You squint at him. You wouldn’t say being an angel is very normal.

Jadis is next. The witch eyes you suspiciously.

“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.

Look, Saul. I know confronting your ex may seem like a daunting task, but people do it all the time. Just remember that you're your own god, and you don't need her nonsense in your life.

What's the plan, Don Juan?
If we somehow manage to free you both from the moon, won't the gods who imprisoned you there put you right back in?
No. 996824 ID: b1b4f3

Fly me to the moon, and let me play amongst the stars...

Does the Moon God have a name?
Also it's about time we start thinking about what to say to her. She has to call off the angels immediately, for one. Secondly... uh, did she transfer the humans' minds into the new sapient animals' bodies or did she just kill them all to make space for the new population? It's hard to tell just how fucked up what she did was without knowing how it worked exactly.
No. 996826 ID: 53560f

So you said before that you only found the humans and then the other god killed them all to make us?
If that’s the case then DH was either lying or wrong about our souls coming from her.

Tripper said a few posts ago that the godess just killed all the humans to make room for her Island of Doctor Moreau dealio.

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?
No. 996853 ID: b1b4f3

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

No. 996875 ID: fd4d13

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
No. 996902 ID: 4f609c

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.

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.”

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.

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.

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.”
