pandoras-secret-box asked: Goddess plume? Or Remlit, if you've already been asked the first one...

Goddess Plume: Only for the humans on the Surface to live the remainder of their lives in peace and safety.

For you? I will answer “Remlit,” as well.

Remlit: Loftwings! I consider them the most majestic of all creatures.

Bokoblins and baba’s are what USUALLY attack humans. Demons’ are like…higher up on the food chain. Like there are some powerful demons that control each area.

They have a pecking order already, and the demon of Eldin mountain leaves the settlements alone so long as we don’t go too far up on the mountain. And since there isn’t a lot of places to grow things on the mountain for the most part there isn’t any shoulder bumping.

Spade is a demon I met who saved my life when I first came down here. We’ve been friends since then.

No matter—I take it these demons are not all as forthcoming as this…Spade fellow.

It’s disconcerting enough to learn they control most of the Surface, and humans still settle in their midst! Are they even safe?

…Be careful. I don’t know what you’re up to. However—if I remember you correctly—you’ll see no harm come to the settlers. You’re better than that.

The Surface is far from peaceful. Though I doubt any knight would be able to fend against a demon. But I digress. My apologies for being so negative. Congratulations on your knighthood.

Not to worry. I don’t much like it either. And you’re right—at the very least we can “whistle while we work,” so to speak.

Thank you. It…ah, nevermind.

Thank you. I am honored.

How enlightening! If by “big and bad,” you mean snatching clumsy brats from the sky on a near daily basis. It’s so…regimented. It must be something to forge your own trail…

Well, you could always come to visit. Though down here it’s less snatching clumsy brats from the sky and more snatching unlucky adults from monsters.

Unlucky adul—do you mean to tell me monsters on the Surface endanger humans once more?!

They never really stopped, to my knowledge. Maybe you can ask to be sent to protect the settlements?

Although uh, I’d have to introduce you to my friend Spade first so you don’t get too uh, upset.

Peace is desirable. My time has been spent in search of a few…objects of interest. What will you do now that you have become a knight? Are they sending knights down to the Surface now…?

They tell me soon—they always tell me soon. Though I suppose I should be patient.

I believe they’re waiting for the appropriate number of settlers. If I heard correctly, they shy away from creating a…”violent” image so soon.

Is the Surface not violent already?

Well enough. I trust that everything is fine in paradise?

If peace is paradise…but then, I suppose it is. Should be. It’s certainly everything I studied.

That should be enough to fill you in. How have you been occupying your time? Every student and their mother asks me about the Surface; I’ve been a mite tale letdown for  ‘Loft.

Oh is it?

From all the way over here, certainly! Though I must admit, the rest of my year’s done a good job finding their own way.

How have you fared?

Reuniting with my peers…always a good show.

Colin knew there were no guarantees, but that didn’t mean the promise was worthless. The feeling he’d had since the beginning of the day, that Theo was trustworthy and someone he could count on, was stronger with the confession he’d made. He was overwhelmingly glad to have someone he could relate to, someone who understood what he was going through. 

And of course, he could understand what Theo had gone through in the past as well. 

Colin was now very glad he’d told Theo about his brother and his quest, rather than just brushing it off and keeping it a secret. 

“I think you can see the whole island from up here,” Colin said, smiling a little. “And… thank you for agreeing to help me. I’m very sorry about your sister, I’m sure you really miss her.” Colin stood as well, not entirely sure what to say about it all or whether what he had said was the right thing. 

There were a thousand things going through Colin’s head in that moment, but the most important was that he was going to be able to save his brother. Maybe someday, they would become knights together. The future didn’t seem as desperate or hopeless as before, and he had Theo to thank for that. 

Impulsively, Colin reached out and wrapped his arms around Theo’s waist, marveling a little at how short he was compared to the knight. “Thank you so much,” he said again, his voice a little muffled by Theo’s tunic. 

Theo nodded wordlessly, locking his tongue in with his teeth. No sense dwelling on sickness now, not when Colin seemed so jovial. It wouldn’t be the time to spin back into sadness.

Still, he fought for each subsequent breath of air, like his lungs had transformed to blocks of steel. Stretching his hands over his head did little to relieve the cramp behind his ribs—

Ooph," he wheezed, caught off-guard by Colin’s embrace. Hands still raised, he stared at the top of the lad’s head for a beat before he sighed a smile, and shook his head.

"…You’re welcome, Colin," he replied warmly, ruffling his hair with one hand and patting his shoulder with the other. Then he took a determined step backward and turned to Faustus.

"Ready?" he asked them both.
