Right. So they're all home safe.

And I know what they eventually do.

Now what do they do in between?

My husband suggested they pile into a '55 woody and go to the beach. Not. Helpful.

LOL - I wonder if one of the "Old Gods" has a '55 woody tucked away somewhere?

Perhaps a beachfront barbecue party for the prodigal children and their kin and friends is in order. Let them get back in touch, and relax and recover before the inevitable "dealing with Jaejong" comes. Pit barbecue by Ra'd with sides by Ebsa?

Ambassador Negue does something amusing?

Raod and Ahxe bring Arno and Ryol to visit and see that their biomom and biodad really are OK? Lots of zings as they play with the other kids.

Nil suggests doing something really nasty to the enemy?

Well, babies seem in order . . .

Q needs to take Xen apart and figure out (or fail to) how he scolded a pair of gates into behaving. Xen needs to tell Karl to go for it. And would Karl like some genetic modification with that offer? Some spying on the XXs might be in order (is not trying to spell that name). A concentrated search plan for where Jaejong came from originally, anyway, and did THEY have anything to do with Helaos' creation is surely in order.

"So, Dad, this is my not-father-in-law, his not-wife, and their twins" "Oh, my old buddy Wolfgang's son?" might also be in order, and rather fun. Especially since Xen has pretty much entirely managed to not replicate his own childhood with any of his kids. (Ra'd introducing Nick to Xen, Rael, and hopefully Nick re-introducing Ra'd to Wolfgang in return. And after 1400 years, how did they manage sons that close in age, and what are Oak and Fox going to be like?)

A family reunion would let story seeds be planted for future tales. Maybe Xen and Rael can have the first wedding on Embassy, with The Judge presiding? If all the known and not bubbled members and friends of the family showed up some very interesting possibilities exist. "Grandma Answer, meet my son-in-law's grandpa, Emre." Rustle versus Kael woild be worth the price of admission.

Does Kael even know who her father is? If not, her meeting him would be worth twice the price of admission especially if Rael is there.

A conference...
... about what to do with New China.
Where You (Pam) let Us (the livejournal readers) throw in suggestions about what they (The Embassy people) suggest to do with New China.

Sentient lab mice
Oh, that is so Hitchhikers. The very intelligent pan-dimensional lab mice are responsible for all the plot holes because of the quest for the answer to life, the universe (mulitiverse) and everything.

Proto UN
Embassy appears to have morphed into a proto-UN. Perhaps some attention to the debate about what to do about Boozy with a parallel debate in Disco about the wisdom of giving this bunch of politicians control over anything. Wolfgang's input should be particularly interesting (assuming you can include it without blowing the PG rating).

Re: Proto UN
When I get around to electing Izzo President--which is why I'm not putting names into director slots--he suggests that when Orde gets tired of retirement, he really ought to think about making this "Council of Worlds" mirage of Xen's into a real thing. I'll need to add him in here, perhaps right at the end, suggesting that they need some sort of forum separate from the D-cops for diplomatic disputes.

And Urfa's the new Chancellor of the Directorate School. He's paying attention to the Psychological issues of Team Trainees, and has been inviting Rael back regularly to beat them up and then show the women how to do it. She may take a permanent position there (Martial Arts, Magical Theory, and Advanced Magical Practice) while the theoretical child is young.

Need more Earth perspective. They've been too quiet for a long time. Karl was taken and they lost their fence. Do they have anything to contribute? What about obnoxious Newsies from several worlds. Is Xen going to get sleepy again after all the damage? Cut away to the Renshe? Sam beat up by little girl? What's so special about Cali? What does Giselle find out about the guard?
(Anonymous) on May 3rd, 2018 05:46 pm (UTC)
Perhaps the former guard has a new career ahead as a mental model. :P

Only weird thing I saw in all that is the Judge doing the marriage, Judges do the divorce, The God of Love should be doing any weddings.

I suppose you could always sue your fiance before the wedding, but then you risk William coming up with a truly deserved settlement.

At some point Xen needs to pop back to New China, visit The Immortal, & reference Miles Vorkosigan (A Civil Campaign specifically) with regards to the "You destroyed a world" charge... Miles hesitated a fractional moment, considering responses: explanation, outrage, protest? Argument in a hallway with a half-potted fool? No. I am Aral Vorkosigan's son, after all. Instead, he stared up unblinkingly, and breathed, "So if you truly believe that, why are you standing in my way?"

So many young witches around. So much power, so much danger and potential without enough supervision. Nighthawk had a son! Witches giving birth near all the gates on Embassy could be extra powerful. Need a birthing facility dedicated. What else could happen? Answer must come to check out Xen's witch daughters and supervise the formation of the Embassy Pyramid. What an excuse for an interdimensional family party.
matapampamuphoff on May 6th, 2018 02:30 am (UTC)
It has occurred to me that I should consider the effects on the baby of being taken through gates and corridors during birth. Because that is certainly a major life change!

Mix it up with Not Fallen?
Should this story be mixed up with the Not Fallen story? The timing is about the same, Xen could have been working on it before he was Marooned. It gives another Wolf, one who is single, to deal with AK. What if the Bishop is taken by the judge?
(Anonymous) on May 6th, 2018 02:35 pm (UTC)
RE: Mix it up with Not Fallen?
Children of a foreign God would have to come before this (gives depth to Rael's baby hunger) and road trip, to explain Nicholas One. Scrambled may have already happened too? so we have two One Worlds and two Comet Falls? The Boy? The wedding?
