Edmondia: how is our chibi?
EnsTren: waiting for his daddy to
Edmondia: is his mommy still there?
Edmondia: and what are they doing?
Edmondia: is he still napping?
EnsTren: he's sleepy and staring at
Edmondia: Mommy is rumpling his hair.
"Give him time, little one."
EnsTren: he gots her hand in his
Edmondia: "...and what exactly are you
EnsTren: "Mot dewing"
Edmondia: She blinked down at him for a
moment. "Not chewing?"
EnsTren: He nodded brightly,
Edmondia: "...have a cookie, dear." She
dangled a bag of Oreoes in front of his
EnsTren: He eyed it. "Hoklat hezza"
Edmondia: "Absolutely not." She gave
him a gentle thwap on the back of the head.
EnsTren: He whined at her
Edmondia: "Do you want to keep your
fangs sharp or have them rot out?"
EnsTren: He spat out her hand,
"Regrow again." He started stuffing the
oreos into his mouth
Edmondia: She tugged on an ear. "One at
a time, chew properly, and I'll make you
brush your teeth the mortal way."
EnsTren: He wrinkled his nose at
her and 'ewwwwed' past the cookies
Edmondia: "You shouldn't take your
abilities for granted," she scolded gently.
EnsTren: He whined at her, he is not
Edmondia: She raised an eyebrow.
EnsTren: "The paste is icky, and
stuff, It's nasty!"
Edmondia: Her eyes narrowed warningly.
"Then you'd better not give me a reason to
make you use it, hmm?"
EnsTren: Beeg beeg eyes at her and
a wibbling lower lip
Edmondia: She tweaked his nose. "Don't
even try it."
EnsTren: cute whimper
Edmondia: "I mean it."
EnsTren: He frowned and turned
away from her
Edmondia: She watched him patiently.
"You can't have your way all the time,
EnsTren: Mommy was being diffrent
and mean, he wanted daddy now.
Edmondia: Daddy wouldn't make him
brush his teeth, would he?
EnsTren: And Daddy would be
nicer, even if he wouldn't be allowed to
have chocolate pizza
Edmondia: Not fair.
Edmondia: Why couldn't he have a
EnsTren: not even a slice of it. They
Edmondia: Much meaner than they'd been
EnsTren: And he wasn't allowed to
kill things. That at least made a bit of
sence, because there wasn't really anyone
here on the bad guys side
Edmondia: He frowned a little. Mommy
and daddy weren't... very much like
mommy and daddy.
EnsTren: Well Daddy was more like
Daddy than mommy was like Mommy.
EnsTren: And they were making him
stay here. Didn't they love him anymore?
Edmondia: Mommy said she loved him,
but mommy was very sneaky.
EnsTren: She had more secrets than
Daddy. And she could lie real good
Edmondia: He frowned, munching on a
cookie thoughtfully. If mommy wasn't
really like mommy, who was she?
EnsTren: Quiet obviously not his
mommy, was she an enemy, then?
Edmondia: Enemies, he decided, didn't
give such nice hugs.
EnsTren: He rather thought he
should test the human with hugs, just to be
certain. He swollowed and stuffed another
cookie into his mouth. Not mommy, but
not enemy. What else could she be?
Edmondia: ...mutant mommy from another
dimension, like on that movie the old
gargoyle was watching!
EnsTren: Scary! Eep! he should go
ask the gargoyle how to get rid of not
mommies since it watched the TV show so
Edmondia: Were not mommies just as
sneaky as real mommies? This would be
EnsTren: And Daddy wouldn't help
him because Daddy was googly eyed over
Edmondia: He frowned thoughtfully.
What could he do all alone?
EnsTren: Maybe...maybe he needed
allies, like daddy had against his mommy
Edmondia: ...he didn't know anybody here!
EnsTren: Well, then he'd just have to
start knowing them
Edmondia: Everyone here was mortal.
EnsTren: Its all he had to work with
Edmondia: And apparently David was
good to work with...
EnsTren: Real mommy had taught
him the best lies were with truth, after all
Edmondia: He frowned a little deeper and
munched on another cookie. Was not-real
mommy as clever as real mommy?
EnsTren: This was confusing, and
anoying. Why couldn't Daddy be here
instead of not real mommy?
Edmondia: Not-real mommy patted his
head the same way real mommy did.
"Patience, little one. He'll be here when
EnsTren: He made himself hold still
and not show he knew she wasn't his real
Edmondia: "Are you done with your
EnsTren: He clasped them to his
chest and scooted away
Edmondia: "I suppose not." She petted
him lightly. "Would you like some milk?"
EnsTren: He eyed her and nodded
Edmondia: She handed him a glass,
watching him as carefully as he was
watching her. "It's nice if you dunk the
cookies in the milk and then eat them."
EnsTren: He gave her a look, did
she think he was stupid? He pouted at her
and propperly opened up the oreo to lick
both side, stuck them back together and ate
Edmondia: She chuckled, conjured up an
Oreo and a glass of milk of her own, and
dunked and ate it.
EnsTren: He ate his. He'd need his
human and maybe the lex gargoyle would
help him. But help him do what?
Edmondia: Everybody here obviously
thought not-mommy was real-mommy.
EnsTren: He wanted his mommy and
he wanted his daddy
Edmondia: But they couldn't be here
because they had both grown up and gotten
EnsTren: Maybe...Maybe Avalon
knew where his real mommy and daddy
were, and take him there!
Edmondia: Unless he was already there.
Hadn't he supposedly gotten big too?
EnsTren: He wanted mommy and
daddy and to be home
Edmondia: His real home, not what
mommy had said about people who loved
you. His real mommy and daddy loved
EnsTren: Not these...these strangers
that looked like family, and not these
mortals. He wanted his real family and his
home and not strangers who didn't love
him! He jumped down off of not Mommy's
lap and ran away.
EnsTren: He needed big water, he'd
go to avalon and his real mommy and
daddy would be there, they had to be
Edmondia: Big hands scooped him up.
"And where are you going, little one?"
EnsTren: He made a loud distressed
sound, and twisted and rolled and tried to
Edmondia: "Robin." He was flipped
upside down and swiftly tucked against a
broad chest. "What's the matter, child?"
EnsTren: He took a big shaking
breath and knew as soon as the scent hit
his nose. He nuzzled, eyes closing; Daddy.
But not his real daddy he remembered, the
fake one, just like the fake mommy. But it
Edmondia: Fake daddy held him just like
his real daddy did, and promptly dropped
down to sit with him on the floor the way
real daddy did whenever he was upset.
EnsTren: Fake daddy was more like
real daddy than fake mommy was like real
mommy. ANd they had given him a guard
who wasn't anyone he'd ever seen before.
EnsTren: He shivered suddenly. His
guard's name was Grandmother. He clung
to fake daddy. Of course Grandmother
knew daddy better than mommy.
Edmondia: Fake daddy rocked him gently.
"What's wrong, my little one?" he said
softly. "Why were you running?"
EnsTren: This was his fake daddy in
a fake place with fake people. But even if
he was fake, this daddy could still catch
him, so he'd have to wait and then get
EnsTren: He hugged his fake daddy.
I'll come home soon to help you daddy, I
Edmondia: His fake daddy frowned a
little. "Did you say something, little one?"
EnsTren: He sniffled and sat down
in his daddy's lap. "I don't like it here"
Edmondia: His daddy petted his hair.
EnsTren: "It's not home, I miss
Edmondia: Daddy hugged him a little too
tightly, too. "The home you knew has
changed, little one."
EnsTren: "Home is home. Mommy
said we live in the palace now, like we
were supposed to"
Edmondia: "Yes, we do." Daddy cuddled
him a little. "You grew up there."
EnsTren: "I miss home, and mommy
says I have friends and there are other
tricksters. ANd she tried to trick me into
thinking this is home too, but it's not! it's
Edmondia: Daddy leaned his chin on the
top of his head, tucking him closer. "Home
is always home. But when you were
older, you made a home here as well."
EnsTren: "How could a mortal be
my best friend, though? They don't live
long enough to be friends with."
Edmondia: Daddy chuckled, and he could
feel it rumble in his chest. "You only think
that because you've not been friends with
one yet, not as you are."
EnsTren: He leaned against his
daddy's chest and blinked slowly. "I miss
home so badly."
Edmondia: "I know you do, little one."
Daddy squeezed him. "I'm sorry."
EnsTren: "Will I ever get to go home
Edmondia: Daddy squeezed him a little
more tightly. "The home as you remember
it, little one... it exists, but changed."
EnsTren: "Daddy, why can't I go
home? I want to go home. Avalon is
Edmondia: "It's safer for you to be here."
Daddy squeezed him. "It's been a very
long time since there were fey children on
EnsTren: "Will I get to go home to
Edmondia: "Maybe, once you've grown
again." Daddy rocked him.
EnsTren: "Promise?" Hug him back
Edmondia: Daddy was holding him too
EnsTren: He smiled up at him
beautifully and hugged.
Edmondia: Daddy nuzzled him like he
hadn't in a long long time.
EnsTren: He offered daddy one of
his oreos, so they could eat together
Edmondia: Daddy gracefully accepted his
Oreo. "And where did you get these?"
EnsTren: "Mommy gave them to me"
Edmondia: "And where's mommy?"
EnsTren: "In another room I think"
EnsTren: "She was going to make
me brush my teeth"
Edmondia: "Oh dear." Daddy fluffed his
hair. "How terrible it must be to have a
mommy who wants your teeth not to rot
EnsTren: "The human way," he
explained, giving daddy a look
Edmondia: "Horror of horrors!" Daddy
tweaked his nose. "You can make the
toothpaste taste like chocolate."
Edmondia: "Otherwise, there's no living
with your mommy."
EnsTren: And THAT made him perk
Edmondia: "Just make sure it's not real
chocolate, or mommy will be mad."
Edmondia: Daddy leaned forward to
whisper conspiratorially in his ear.
"Mommy's scary when she's mad."

EnsTren signed on at 8:14:16 PM.
EnsTren: "I think maybe all
mommies are scary when angry"
Edmondia: "I think you're probably right."
He fluffed his hair again. "But your
mommy wants you to be healthy."
EnsTren: "Daddy and mommy can
make me healthy. If I get sick then you'd
HAVE to come"
Edmondia: "But if we always came, how
would you learn to take care of yourself?"
EnsTren: "I can blow people up who
try to hurt me"
Edmondia: "There are better ways to deal
with people like that than violence, little
EnsTren: "Like What? Politics? I
can't go home because of politics but if you
blew them up I could"
Edmondia: "I'm not going to blow up my
own Children, Robin." He tilted his chin
up, making him meet his gaze. "Do you
EnsTren: "Cause the war's over and
that's what grandmother does"
Edmondia: "Why do you think the war
started in the first place?"
EnsTren: "Cause grandmother is
Edmondia: He smoothed down a stray
lock of hair, sighing faintly through his
teeth. "Something like that, yes. And she
was an irresponsible ruler."
EnsTren: "Which is why she blew
Edmondia: "Quite." He smoothed down
his hair again. "It is the duty of a ruler to
maintain order, not to add chaos."
EnsTren: "Mommy says that the
tricksters can't visit me"
Edmondia: Oberon blanched. "Mommy is
right." No way in hell was he letting them
anywhere near his baby.
EnsTren: "I'm still lonely"
Edmondia: "I know you are, little one."
He tapped his cheek with a finger. "But
we have to keep you safe."
Edmondia: "You're our baby."
EnsTren: "I still...Why do people
want to hurt me?"
Edmondia: "...let's just say you and your
sisters don't get along very well."
EnsTren: "I have little sisters?"
Edmondia: "Yes, triplets." He petted his
Edmondia: "You get along much better
with your stepsister than you do with
EnsTren: "Did I pull their hair?"
Edmondia: "A little more than just that,"
he said dryly.
EnsTren: "Bet they deserved it then"
Edmondia: "Perhaps," he said
noncommitedly. "Nevertheless, you'll be
safer without them around."
EnsTren: "So because I'm smaller
and weaker you're putting outside with the
mortals and their iron, daddy?"
Edmondia: He flashed him a wry grin.
"Something like that, baby."
EnsTren: "It's cold here."
Edmondia: "I know." He pressed a kiss to
Edmondia: "Would you like your mommy
and I to bring you blankets from home?"
EnsTren: "And food? please?"
Edmondia: "And food," he agreed quietly.
"Not too many sweets, though."
EnsTren: "Fruit? No veggies/"
Edmondia: "Some veggies," he disagreed.
"You need to be healthy."
EnsTren: "Not icky ones"
Edmondia: "The icky ones are the
EnsTren: "Carrots aren't icky"
Edmondia: "I'll make sure to bring plenty
of them the next time we're here, then."
EnsTren: "And apples, and oranges,
Edmondia: He chuckled. "Very well,
little one, that all sounds healthy enough."
