Snake Report: Life as an ascended being, Day 4


 

Gooooooooood Morning Rocks!

Gooooooooood Morning Fancy lattice covered hole to certain death!

Gooooooooood Morning shrine to the Tiny-Snake-God!

Gooooooooood Morning empty water-holding vase!

And Goooooooood Morning Miss Paladin! It warms my little serpent heart to see you well, and as miserable you might be, you don't look dead. That's progress!

sss...

I've learned a few human swear words.

sss... Rough language for a Woman of Faith.

What a wonderful day this is. I can move, freely, slithery and the like, I'm back to 100% operations here in Camp Olympus

 

Well, maybe 85%

It doesn't matter. I'm moving around, I'm using magic, I'm feeling good. Today is going to be a thing of progress, I can feel it.

[Water Manipulation VI]

 

No more multi-tasking. Aquatic necessities have been taken care of for the time being. Focus on the air, focus on the beautiful Snake-God vase: finish the work and move on.

That's the routine now, no more tiny one drop a minute sort of pace. Instead, my focus is once again on the familiar.

Rocks, stone, dirt, walls, ceilings, floors... The staircase I'm carving looks absolutely beautiful. I'm telling you right now, it's great, it's gonna be great. I make the best staircases. Just like I make the best walls.

Believe me.

First a wall, then a tower, now a staircase.

This staircase, believe me- It's gonna be great. I have a plan, I'm going to make it pay for itself.

Yes I really mean that, and no: it's not going to be fun.

But Operation [This Time For Sure] is now a Go.
