Ocean’s casually soaking in the main area’s swimming pool, leaving through a catalog.

Patricia seems to be burning down the kitchen, their apron smeared with dough.

Lillian is watching a movie, both snivelling at the ending.

Julius is sound asleep on the couch, and Walter pokes his cheek, laughing quietly when he doesn’t even seem to stir. 

Aryll scans what seems to be a very old and dusty book, Em hovering over her shoulder.

 

Who do you investigate?

Aryll doesn’t look up for an instant. “Oh, hey Galaxian. Reading up on that curse. Ocean said something about the dragon’s name being Theta? She didn’t remember much else, granted.” 

 

The book contains pictures of blue chain wrapped around mortals, their hosts each suffering... unnatural ends. Aryll grimaces as she looks at some of them. 

 

Well, that’s a worrying thought. I can’t let anyone see some of this or Julius and Kuri would be kicked out of here faster than you can say magnolia. She closes the book before anyone can read what she’s seen.

Too bad, because the god had kind of been leaning over her shoulder. Galaxian slightly reached out to the mortals in the pictures, as if he wanted to help them--which he did.

Aryll turns back to look at Kuri just a little too quickly. “Oh, they’re historical curse descriptions. From the days where vio1ence was how you took care of people you didn’t like. Still kinda is that way with Theta, though.”

 

Ocean glances back at the single chain link on her hand. “We know enough about how this works on mortals and demigods, but we haven’t found anything on its effects on deities yet.”

Ocean pulls herself from the pool, squeezing the ends of her sleeves over the pool before approaching Aryll. “I like to think that once she was a kind being, but the bitterness growing in her soul has made her grow crue1. Poor dear, though, her children were k1lled.” 

 

Julius sleepily opens his eyes just as Walter pokes him again, and sits up on the couch, scowling at being rudely awakened. “What-“ 

 

Walter ducks behind the sectional, hoping he didn’t notice him.

Aryll slides the book out of Julius’s line of sight, but apparently she’s too late. 

“What’s in that? I swear that I’ve never seen that book before, and I’ve turned that library upside down for answers. Why don’t you want me to look?”

 

”No, it’s fine. You’ve just got enough to think about.”

 

”Aryll, I’m sixteen for crying out loud, I’m sure it’s fine.”

"Hello, all!" Drago said, melodramatically bursting through the door, her wings spread wide. "How's everybody doin on this fine day?"

 

"She's just trying not to think about The Move," Mari muttered, ducking under Drago's left wing.

 

"Or cry," Wyvern added, ducking under the right one.

 

"Pbbbfffttalkrusg," Drago said, waving a hand dismissively. "Totally NOT true." She discreetly wiped a tear, but instantly resumed her T-pose. "So, what's going on here, guys?"

Drago’s entrance seems to have dumped some well-needed figurative water on the figurative fire. Julius’s expression goes from ‘enraged’ to just ‘angry’, and Patricia runs out of the kitchen, holding the cremated remains of what seems to be some kind of foodstuff in a cake pan, coughing all the while.

 

”Oh, hi! Hope you don’t mind the mess, things have been a bit disorganized. We haven’t met; I’m Ocean, goddess of saltwater, travel, and logic.” Ocean says.

Walter finally decides to stop ducking underneath the couch. The demon Changeling looks unimpressed at Patricia.

Julius gets off the couch, and walks towards the kitchen, knowing full well the horror he’ll be met with.

Well, thank goodness for that, Aryll thinks.

"Hey there, Ocean!" Drago greeted, especially cheerful today, shaking the other Goddess's hand as is their very life depended on it. "Nice to meetcha! Name's Drago, Goddess of Dragons, Magic, and Art. This is Wyvern, my flipside - long story - Goddess of Wyverns, Power, and Destruction. And this is my sister, Mari."

 

"NOT a Goddess," the snake-hybrid clarified.

 

"I still say that Drago, Mari, and Cassie are my moms . . ." Wyvern began with an eye roll.

 

"WILL YOU STOP SAYING THAT," the sisters yelled in unison.

Julius comes back out of the kitchen, dragging Patricia by the wrist. “You blew up another oven?? How do you wreck three ovens in a year? 

Ocean turns around to address them. “Both of you, enough.” She leans in a little closer to to the visitors. “Please don’t mind them. The few teenagers who do live here certainly could get along better...” 

 

Of course, Walter’s involved in this argument in a snap. It’s degrading a bit quickly, and Aryll gets up from the desk to try and mediate the situation. She’s left her book unattended...

The book’s cover is blue with gold lettering in a language only the Changelings seem to know how to read. There’s a strangely magical feeling to the book, as if even though it is old and frayed, it is still an ever dynamic source of knowledge. The soft leather of the cover almost seems to beg to be opened...

Galaxian could understand the language if he turned a certain ability/power on, but he couldn't. Instead, he looked at the cover a bit more, then flipped the book open.

Inside, there’s a lot of pictures, more of the difficult text, but mixed in are a few intelligible words. The first pages seem to have natural-looking villages, their inhabitants seemingly praising a god in the middle of the images. Some of the later images even show what seems like Ocean; there’s also a lot more scenes of suff3ring that show the village as a safe haven. There’s a curious image of what seems to be a young, sad-looking Changeling woman with what seems to be an angelic toddler girl and a baby with black hair in the woman’s arms. Below them is a rather unsett1ing image of the d3ad god and above of a large blue dragon with black talons.

As the dragon destroys the town the family is in in the last image, she leaves the baby- but as the image continues into the next page, Ocean finds them, all under the watchful eye of the dragon. There’s a few pictures of more gris1y curse v1ctims before there’s the vivid illustration of a village burning to the ground, survivors huddling for comfort. There’s a picture of the dragon’s mind seeming to connect with the cursed chain of one unlucky fellow, as if to suggest mind control of sorts. The next page features a large technical drawing of the airship... and of Aryll’s arrival... Ocean’s disappearance and Julius’s curse... It’s as if the book writes itself, expanding its own knowledge.

 

Em hovers next to Galaxian, communicating telepathically so Ocean and the others don’t hear. Feel free to talk about it with me. Just think it, and I’ll hear. You will say nothing of the mind control; it could get Kuri, Julius, and even Ocean in a world of trouble. That’s all I ask of you.

I’m Emmeline... I’m just a soul, this is the form Changelings take after they d1e if the b0dy is destroyed. Instead of getting a peaceful eternity, I get one spent wandering the world, which is both a blessing and a curse... I do get to see my son growing up at last; I felt awful about having to leave Julius the night my town was attacked, but I had to. But, I’m uselessly immortal, watching the lives of others like a television set.
