She pressed two fingers to her chin, stroking it for a long moment, trying to place any of those answers, “Hmm… nope, can’t say I know anything about those…  you didn’t ‘help humans escape their shell’ by introducing life fibers, right? Tell me that isn’t how you did that. And Isengard sounds a lot like a certain mutant I might know…”

Fred laughed, sat back in his chair, put his feet up on his desk, popped a couple pistachios into his mouth, and said, “Let me tell you a story….”

Raven Finds the First Men

Doreen leaned in, hooking her tail over the back of the chair, listening intently to his words, giggling and cooing at the descriptions of men and women, “So, they already existed when you found them? Not you breathed life into them?”

Fred grinned and nodded. “You got it. Ain’t evolution grand? All I did was help them get over their fear and get out there to explore this big, wonderful world. Everything since then has been all their doing, and it’s the best game ever. I’ll admit, sometimes I wonder, especially when humans invented dumb stuff like government, but for the most part, they’re always amazing me with their creativity and spunk.”

"No, no, the voice is just a side-effect. All it does is freak people out, usually. I have’t ever had anyone use a fire extinguisher on me yet, but then again, I don’t usually appear in someone’s bedroom in the middle of the night. Not unless we’re already dating, at least. It’s probably all the playing in it. So what am I playing when I’m not playing human? This world’s version of myself. Or, at least, any one of this world’s versions of myself, although my favorite version these days tends to be Raven. I liked playing Coyote for a long damned time, but Loony Toons kind of made that even sillier than I like. Reynard is always a fun one to play, but he doesn’t get as much attention these days, outside of stories. Brer Rabbit, pretty much the same. The Brindled One .. oh, wait. He’s from a different world entirely. Nevermind. So, yeah, these days it’s mostly Raven. And I play Raven all the time, even when I’m playing human. But when I stop playing human, that’s when I start playing god. And honestly, the things humans expect of gods are ridiculous. Besides that, if things are bad enough I have to step in as a god to fix them, they’re bad enough I know ahead of time I’m going to hate dealing with them."

Doreen blinked, holding both hands out in a ‘Whoa!’ gesture, “That was… way too much to take in at once… hold on, let me parse that a bit… You’re a raven? But you enjoyed being a coyote? The hell is a Reynard?”

Fred laughed and shook his head. “Not A raven. THE Raven. You know, the one who stole the sun from Eagle, who stole fire from the Rock people, who helped humans escape from their shells way back in thie beginning, THAT Raven.

"And it wasn’t just A coyote, it was THE Coyote. You know, the one who killed the monster that had eaten his friends and used the parts of its body to create the different human tribes of the desert, who hunts monsters in dreams to protect the tribes, who finds things others want to remain hidden. THAT Coyote.

"As for Reynard, he’s French. He’s the Fox. who tricked his way through the entire animal kingdom, but especially tricked Isegrim the Wolf." he chuckled. "Oh, that Wolf was a real a - a real jerk. One of those ‘might makes right’ kind of thugs. And he never learned different, no matter how many times he lost."

She pressed two fingers to her chin, stroking it for a long moment, trying to place any of those answers, “Hmm… nope, can’t say I know anything about those…  you didn’t ‘help humans escape their shell’ by introducing life fibers, right?

"You do make me happy, sweetheart."  She shivered and lay still for his touch, such a simple delight.  "You do.  And I love you too."  

He drew her close and kissed her gently, then gave her a loving smile. “And you make me happy, beloved. I can’t imagine being away from you ever again.”

He chuckled softly and kissed the tip of her nose, then suddenly appeared on his knees beside the bed. “In fact, I want to make sure the world knows that I will be with you forever. He took her hand, holding the ring they had chosen, and said, “This is a token of my love for you. Will you accept it and show the world?”

Hazel froze and looked from him to the ring, her eyes widening slightly.  Gears had to turn…but they clicked things into place and she grinned a very sappy grin and squeezed his fingers.  ”I…I will.  Oh, Fred.  Yes.  A million times yes.”  She leaned up and offered a kiss, her aura blindingly joyful and loving for him.  

He slipped the ring onto her finger, then drew her into his arms and lost himself in her kiss. She, and it, was the entire world, and her happiness and joy filled him and echoed back to her, his own mingled with it. He spared a passing thought for all the people in the neighborhood who would experience an unexplained sense of happiness, whether awake or sleeping, and hoped it would inspire them to go out and do good.

"Captain Forehead?" Doreen blinked, trying to figure out who he might be talking about. "What… is your name, then?"

"Yeah. Captain Forehead," Fred said, grinned, and shifted shape long enough to look like Angel at his broodiest, complete with game face. "THIS is Captain Forehead." He shifted back to his normal appearance and laughed. "And don’t worry, I’m not one of those pathetic breakable wannabe Hollywood vamps. Still, at least they only sparkle for the few milliseconds between sunlight hitting them and them bursting into flame."

He laughed. “Oh yeah.  I kind of forgot that, Didn’t I? I go by Fred when I’m playing human. Just plain ordinary Fred.” He extended a hand to Doreen, while giving her a courtly bow.

Doreen blinked, wondering just where she lost any sense of the conversation, watching Fred transform briefly, “Playing… human? What are you when you’re not playing? And, uh, Doreen Green, aka Squirrel Girl.”

"Oh! You never watched Buffy the Vampire slayer or Angel, huh?" He laughed. "Not to worry. You won’t miss out on TOO many cultural references. And, yeah. Playing human. When I’m not playing … damn, that’s a tough question. I’m ALWAYS playing. Just sometimes I’m not playing HUMAN. Those are usually the times I have to use the god voice. and I HATE the god voice. It pretty much always means someone screwed up so badly I have to exert my full power. Or at least a good portion of it. And THAT usually has unpleasant side effects. So I try to avoid it. Does that help, or did that just confuse things even more?"

"God voice? Is that your mutation slash superpower? What does it do? I’ve heard of both series, but didn’t get into Whedon until Firefly… so… yeah. If there are times that you’re playing, but not playing human, what are you playing as, then? Why the heck does that last sentence not feel grammatically correct?"

"No, no, the voice is just a side-effect. All it does is freak people out, usually. I have’t ever had anyone use a fire extinguisher on me yet, but then again, I don’t usually appear in someone’s bedroom in the middle of the night. Not unless we’re already dating, at least.
