Domain

It's not common, for a god to leave their domain. The risk of losing a manifested form, while recoverable, is annoying, and a significant drawback. But it has been known, rarely, to happen. Sometimes, gods need to be do something important outside of their domain, and there are no acolytes or priests capable. Sometimes, a god is desperate enough to act as their own missionary. Sometimes, a god has no acolytes, and must accomplish all of the duties an acolyte would by themselves.

Raezenoth? Is bored. He has run out of things to do, and Idania is busy. With her boyfriend. Again. He would damn him, if he did not make her so happy.

He decides to go through a portal an explore. It's not without forethought, he's not stupid, he avoids the witch's world with its 'soul-pets' and the worlds where he could potentially be under threat, or expected to hide. That leaves, quite neatly, exactly one. Medallion and the daeva's set of worlds are dangerous and flying in public is considered abnormal. Spellbinders take time to charge their spells, and so he has time to react to them. The same is not true of Prime's world, though that's his second option. The world with spellbinders is his first.

That is why Katydid and Rain get a divine visitor.

"Hello," he says, as if his behavior is utterly normal.

He smiles at her. "Realistically, if I wanted to properly win, I'd need a time machine and go back to before he thought you were a good queen candidate, then send past-me to your shop to romance you while keeping you as far away from him as possible until the wedding."

"And then at the wedding make a rude gesture in his face?"

"Yes. That. In all of my kingly finery and with everyone watching."

"And I'd say, 'Edarial, if you don't like that man, why did you invite him to our wedding in the first place?'"

"I would of course reply, 'Because I wanted to rub his loss in his face, I picked someone excellent as a queen on my own and he has no power over me.'"

"And probably since in this timeline we were conducting enough of a relationship to get married deliberately I would want to know why I was not informed of this apparent feud."
royal_obligation: (f. It will be worth it)

[personal profile] royal_obligation 2014-09-18 05:39 am (UTC)(link)
"And then I would explain everything and say how he was a terrible person and such. Along with the time machine, of course. Communication's important for a healthy relationship."

"It is. I might be miffed with you for not mentioning the time machine first thing."

[personal profile] royal_obligation 2014-09-18 05:42 am (UTC)(link)
"I - probably would have mentioned that within fifteen minutes of meeting you, really. Because I don't see myself good at seduction."
come_midnight: (e ~ distantly in line)

[personal profile] come_midnight 2014-09-18 05:43 am (UTC)(link)
"If you were good at seduction you think you'd keep me in the dark?"

[personal profile] royal_obligation 2014-09-18 05:44 am (UTC)(link)
"No, I wouldn't spout it out in a panic on our first meeting in lieu of actual romantic words."

"It's just as well. Information is a better opener than, I don't know, elaborate compliments on my eye color."
royal_obligation: (d. Of course)

[personal profile] royal_obligation 2014-09-18 05:48 am (UTC)(link)
"Oh? No love of me saying, for example, they are liquid pools of warm brandy? Or that you definitely stole the best stars out of the sky? .... That second one was pretty bad, I apologize."

"Wasn't it established that you are the one with starlight hair? Anyway, please, no comparing my anatomy with alcohol."
royal_obligation: (c. Have a plan)

[personal profile] royal_obligation 2014-09-19 11:02 pm (UTC)(link)
"I think I may be exceptionally bad at this," snorts Edarial. "No comparisons between you and alcohol, agreed."

"Should I be coming up with mediocre poetic compliments on my end?"
royal_obligation: (b. Fixing problems)

[personal profile] royal_obligation 2014-09-19 11:05 pm (UTC)(link)
"Not unless you want to. On my end - I don't think I have it in me to manage even mediocre poetic compliments. Or poems in general. Alas."
royal_obligation: (d. Of course)

[personal profile] royal_obligation 2014-09-19 11:07 pm (UTC)(link)
"You sure? There's still time to flee, find someone who can actually compose poetry."
come_midnight: (d ~ nice soft cat)

[personal profile] come_midnight 2014-09-19 11:08 pm (UTC)(link)
"We are married, occasionally kissing, and co-ruling a small country. If I were going to flee I think I've missed my optimal window."
royal_obligation: (a. Distractions)

[personal profile] royal_obligation 2014-09-19 11:11 pm (UTC)(link)
"Probably a bit. But recall, that marriage doesn't count on account of you being under duress at the time and the vows being utterly terrible. So, just occasionally kissing and co-ruling a small country."
come_midnight: (f ~ flowchart)

[personal profile] come_midnight 2014-09-19 11:12 pm (UTC)(link)
"It counts from a - public recognition standpoint. Which is most of what marriage is really for."
royal_obligation: (f. It will be worth it)

[personal profile] royal_obligation 2014-09-19 11:16 pm (UTC)(link)
"... Technically. But the lesser portion of what marriage is really for is the part I find most important."
