OOM post: Yuletide light-boats in Gotland

Teja opens the door onto the snowy evening hills of Gotland, the sea calmly and regularly breathing in the background.

The last rays of the sun are paling being the hills on the far side where the path winds towards the next farm, and there is warm firelight in the still-open door of the stately farmhouse that is the home of Teja's friend -- 'stately' for 7th century Scandinavia, that is.

Figures are working around the baking shed.

"Honey-cakes!" Hilde squeals joyfully, charging down the hill.

Sameth laughs and pulls his cloak around him, "It's a beautiful night."
makesthings: (considering you)

"It feels like home to me during the winter,"

Cold isn't his favorite thing but it's familiar and he follows Teja down the hill.

There are a lot of children and Sam smiles and remembers the excitement of the Winter Festival, he used to enjoy it when he was younger.
makesthings: (little awkward)

Sameth hesitates until Teja says it's good to go down and tucks away the name Loki to ask about later.

"Oh, I hope they won't be too shocked to see you then. Isis is wonderful."

"I can wait to enter since I don't want to add to their confusion."

Sameth nods and tries to make himself look as presentable as possible.

Sameth sets down the apples and removes his cloak and bows to Gotho as he waits to be introduced.

If Sameth had known he was going to be introduced so he would have worn his surcoat as he's currently in one of his dirtier shirts and bows,

"It's good to meet you."

"Smith-craft, he's a good teacher. Thank you,"

Though they're more like fellow smiths but he knows he seems too young for that.
makesthings: (glowing Charter as he works)

Sameth traces one of his spells in the air and creates the illusion of a horse and rider that gallops past the basket of apples as his Charter Mark glows.

"Look at it!" Hilde squeals, hopping up and down with excitement; all the other children (including the two little strangers, who are barely two and roughly three, respectively) crowd around and ooh and ahh.

"Might one not shine a light...?" Martialis starts to wonder, Roman enough that he suspects some clever engineering.

"One might," Teja says. "I have seen many of such marvels from the future, that are all truly and completely man-made, in my afterlife. But this is true magic."

[personal profile] makesthings 2011-12-05 04:19 pm (UTC)(link)
Sam looks over to Martialis and says,

"You can come closer if you want and see. It's an illusion done with magic."

The horse and rider is doing circuits around the apple basket.

"Yes, it is,"

When Agilulf leaves, Sam looks over to Teja, he didn't want to cause trouble. He's found that it's better to show what he can do than explain it.
