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.

"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."

"It counts from a - public recognition standpoint. Which is most of what marriage is really for."

"... Technically. But the lesser portion of what marriage is really for is the part I find most important."

"Picking one person from all others, with full disclosure of their flaws and quirks and finding you love them anyway, to be your partner and confidant. Sticking by them through - whatever happens after, whether it be the apocalypse or war or famine or - something that could potentially be distressing and drive you apart. And trusting them. Absolutely."

"That's a tall order."

"Just a bit. It was something of a problem, before, if you happened to notice."

He kisses her forehead. "I'm going to guess that it is slightly less of a - thing for you."

"Considerably less, yes. I mean, it's serious - but it is a thing you do when you are serious rather than a serious thing intrinsically."

"Huh. Interesting."

"I wonder if Ice and Cypress have had this conversation."

royal_obligation: (h. Nothing to do with that)
From: [personal profile] royal_obligation
"I - have no idea. I assume so, they are married and all. But we can always ask."

"I mean, they are probably on the same order of magnitude of seriousness, so it may be academic."

"Yeah. They seemed pretty happy to spend the rest of eternity together. While flaunting."

"And cuddling souls."

"I still think the soul birds are cheating."

"We could get a set," she points out. "If we wanted them."

From: [personal profile] royal_obligation
"Mmm. Tempting, but I don't think the danger's worth the ability to cuddle souls and talk to myself. Besides, we can't lose our nerve now. We got this far without the cheaty soul birds."

"We did," she agrees. "Sometimes-kissing."

"And cuddling, don't forget the cuddling."

"Yeah. That was nice."
