Rosy Glow zipped over the entire group in circles, leaving an evanescent wake of sparkling pink that really alleviated the mood. Some of the Aureny took on communicative announcer postures. The lingering pink twinkles scattered by the Kao-Sidhe coalesced into focused beams of visualization that moved with conscious vibration, like smoke in the air revealing ripples of breath and speech.

Rosy Glow audially translated speech that she could apparently understand, with character tones that carried eerie clarity of individuality – for something coming from a completely different vibrational language pattern.

YOU ARE BRAVE, COMING TO US HERE.
HUMAN BEINGS ARE FRAGILE WITHOUT YOUR MACHINES OF DESTRUCTION, WHICH HAVE CAUSED US EXTREME SORROW.
HERE AND NOW, WE ARE GIVING YOU A BETTER CHANCE NOT TO SUFFER LIKEWISE WHEN THE DECISION RESTS IN OUR MOMENT.
WE ARE GOING TO LEARN ABOUT YOU.

Soleil stepped out from the edge of the group to address them. “I also wish to learn, in order to know what must be done.” Announce yourself by fitting your role, not speaking your title, she remembered from a dim motherly lesson.

WE WILL HAVE YOU INTRODUCE YOURSELF ACCORDING TO OUR CUSTOM.
MYSTVALL WILL BE THE ONE TO TEACH YOU ABOUT MATCHING FORCES.
THEY – translated Rosy Glow, selecting the ungendered pronoun not of the draconid set – WILL BRING YOU TO A PLACE OF PREPARATION.

Derringer looked down at himself as he stepped forward.

NOT YOU.
ONLY HER. The Aureny speaking indicated Soleil with their pointed chin.
THE REST OF YOU MAY WAIT IN A PLACE WHERE NOURISHMENT WILL BE PROVIDED.

Everyone regarded Soleil, and she looked back at them gravely as she separated herself further from the group by a couple steps.

THE TRANSLATOR WILL ACCOMPANY HER.
GO NOW.

As she moved to follow Mystvall, the Princess Ascendant looked back over her shoulder at each of her traveling group, saying nothing as she disappeared. Rosy Glow bobbed a courtesy and followed them away, humming.
