"Yeah," Jaron said, tilting his head in the direction of the door while keeping his eyes on the device. "That's how I could make a room for Aegeas. And it just, doesn't matter if I can remember it or reverse engineer it if it doesn't make sense in the real world. It's going to be so much harder to make, if not impossible, depending on what it is."

Fyrsil shook his head. "Separated hundreds of years ago," he half-whispered, before moving his gaze from the ground back to the brothers. "At least you're getting back together? Hopefully?"
S'io credesse che mia risposta fosse
a persona che mai tornasse al mondo,
questa fiamma staria senza piu scosse.
Ma per ciò che giammai di questo fondo
non tornò vivo alcun, s'i' odo il vero,
senza tema d'infamia ti rispondo.

"...You do have a point," Robin conceded. "But at least you can make fidget cubes and fidget spinners! Those definitely work in the real world - I always use them on my world, and there's not a single bit of magic attached."

"We are," Envy confirmed with a nod.

"They already found me," Greed said, gesturing at himself with a finger. "It was entirely accidental, but it's one homunculus down."

"...We thought he kidnapped Alphonse Elric," Envy said. Greed shot his sibling a glance; it was clear that they had bounced back to their usual self, and were wasting no time in teasing him.

"I just wanted to show him kittens," Greed defended. "It wasn't my fault he forgot to call his brother."

"You tried fighting Edward, Reyes and Izumi when they came to get Alphonse," Envy pointed out, giving a mischievous smile.

"Edward tried breaking my shield, Reyes tried stabbing me, and Izumi tried breaking my house," Greed argued back; he was happy they could fall back into their usual banter.

"Well, you do look like a mob boss," Envy nonchalantly shot back. "And the Devil's Nest was shady..."

xXx

"His Blessing is nothing special," Zogin grumbled. "Just a little bit of darkness, just like Mage. But it's what he's willing to do as a person that's more the problem. If it'll help him achieve his goal, he'll threaten, kidnap, and even kill."

The fox thought for a few seconds, then nodded. "I can make these, sure" he said. "They're super basic, and even if I forget anything, I can just make a different version of them."

******


Fyrsil threw up his paws. "I know it's weird to be focusing on this instead of them trying to tear your house down," he said, looking at Greed, "But you wanted to show him kittens? Just because, or was there any reason?"

******


"Then why were you hanging out with him?" Arlais said. "Please don't tell me this is another Mage situation, where you think he's bad but then it turns out you didn't know something or you know some bigoted people." Arlais wanted to say that Zogin was kinda bigoted, but that'd probably just anger Zogin.

"Maybe it'll help breaking everything down into basics?" she suggested. "Then you can think about all the big parts and put them together to make whatever you come up with up here-" She tapped her forehead. "-come to life after things go back to normal."

"Oh, there was a reason," he reassured Fyrsil. "Him and his brother used to be apprenticed to the local alchemist. She also runs the local butcher shop, so I'd see the two most of the time when I went to get some meat. I hadn't seen them in Dublith in ages when I suddenly ran into Alphonse on the side of the road, and I remembered just how much he loved cats. So I offered to show him them. He's...different now, and I wanted to see if it was still really him in there."

Greed rubbed the back of his head.

"...I know that sounds stupid," he admitted. "But it wasn't just that - I genuinely wanted to hear the kid happy. He sounded a little distracted when I was talking to him, and I could tell that he had gone through a lot since I saw him years ago."

xXx

Zogin let out a sigh.

"It's a long story," she admitted. "One that none of us really want to tell. But the short of it is that he forced himself into our lives, tried kidnapping Soul, and now we're stuck with him for who knows how long. So I'm not sad that he's decided to wander off again - it means I don't have to deal with him for awhile."

"That's what I was already doing," Jaron said, frowning, "But if the little stuff is wrong - if one gear is out of place, or I forgot about the tension somewhere, or a spring is exerting a little more force than I thought - the big stuff won't work either."

******


"That's, fair enough," said Fyrsil. Well, that was a little less entertaining of a story than he'd been expecting. "I'm hoping you didn't just walk up to him and say 'hey, it's nice to see you again, want to see some cats?'"

******


"I just don't want anyone else to be able to deal with him for awhile," Arlais said. She took a deep breath; she wasn't against running into the ship on her own and looking for him, but having company would be nice. Especially since it sounded like he was a little more capable of fighting than she was. "And why is he still bothering you, anyways? Does he still want Soul?"
