Topic A creative question for RPers...
82 Blood Elf Paladin
Manwendil would be DEEPLY disappointed in the way both men and women presented themselves, spoke, acted towards each other, and is it really necessary to dump all that bleach on your hair i mean by the Light that's going to make it coarser than straw
then he'd go rampaging through the streets being a goddamn paladin and trying to cast holy wrath and consecrate and hammer of justice but oh god THESE AREN'T WORKING I NEED MY BUBBLE @*!! WHY CAN'T I BUBBLE and then be carted off by the police for wielding swords in public and trying to kill various automobiles.
he'd probably end up joining law enforcement if he couldn't get back to Azeroth like a goody two shoes and advance in the ranks to being a homicide detective. and be really good at it. and look good doing it.
i dunno how he'd react to me. probably give me a Look and laugh, then forcibly demand i tell him how to get back to Silvermoon cuz he has a hot date with Noralin in like an hour. only in more gentlemanly words.
Peredhel.. eesh.. let's not even go there. probably end up on Broadway or in fashion magazines.
Frosty would probably be very upset and worried and meeping for all of the ten minutes it would take for me to find him some raw meat. After seeing that there is no immediate danger, and that someone is willing to feed him, he would likely calm down. Then he would probably fall asleep, as tired out-of-world undead baby dragons are wont to do. After he woke up, however, I would likely have a difficult time keeping him from getting into everything - and wondering about where Hildwyn (his Dwarven caretaker) is.
Definitely best he stays where he is.
Sad part is, I thought something was amidst. Though I chose not to say anything, because it may have been some sort of grammar thing I didn't know about. :/
Lys would wonder who I am and how the heck she got here, as well where exactly "here" is. I doubt I would be able to explain that to her satisfaction. "Another planet" may work, but then she'd wonder which planet, where it was in relation to Azeroth, and how come there's not a portal between them as well as just how close the Legion is to finding us.
Technology, too, would be hard to explain, but she may be content to write most of it off as "a technomage did it". Some things wouldn't be too far off for her. A car isn't that different from a chopper or siege engine, e-mail is like mail only delivered by magic, the Internet is a magical library of information that most people - even non-mages! Hmph! - have access to, etc. She would never get over the idea of lawnmowers ( "Why in Elune's name would you do that to the grass!?!" ).
Lys would probably enjoy seeing the movies, though the exact purpose of television would be beyond her ( "Why would someone pay money for someone else to tell them what to buy?" ) and possibly frustrating ( "Hey! That was a good part! This has nothing to do with anything going on in the story!" - my own comments as voiced internally over the years ). I'd be careful to keep her away from comic books, as she'd probably take them as literal evidence that magic exists among everyday folk ( "and where can I find this Charles Xavier person again? He seems nice" ).
I'd try to explain that the comic books were fiction, and that magic didn't in fact exist - upon which she'd prove me wrong by Blinking across the room, freezing my Mtn Dew, or setting the carpet on fire ( hopefully not the latter ). I'd have to ask her not to do that in public, because people don't like that kind of power if they can't get it themselves, and that further use could land her in a federal laboratory under heavy sedation or possibly cryogenic preservation as the techheads tried to figure out exactly how she did it. If she didn't believe me, I would just sigh and tell her that they don't like arcane magic any more in this world than they do in Darnassus. She would then concede that yes, perhaps it would be best to keep her abilities secret.
And that's not even getting into physical details. She would have a very hard time living under my roof, as the ceilings here are barely high enough for me, a ~6'3ish human. Lys would be constantly bonking her head going through doorways. The good news is that her ears, hair color, and skin tone can be easily brushed off as an elaborate costume ( thank heavens for Halloween, LARP, and all things cosplay! ).
I'm not sure how well I'd be able to hide how much I knew about her or her world. That Earth is just another planet is an easy enough concept, but our lack of portals would be perplexing to her. Lys may be a little offended at the idea that technology does so much for us that magic should be doing, but she'd get over it after discovering my iPod not only plays music but also streams Netflix. "There's no way technology can do all this," she'd say. "It has to be magic."
She'd get along great with my cat, though my dog would meet his demise trying to eat her ( he hates anyone and everyone he didn't grow up around ). She'd be appalled by how our neighbors treat their horses ( as is pretty much everyone except those neighbors ) and probably attempt to liberate the poor beasts from their 1/3 Acre of Gloom. They'd probably assume it was an accident, though, 'cause horses frequently do escape from the 1/3 Acre of Gloom to wander our green grassy yard of freedom. Being invisible helps too.
Eventually, longing for her friends on Azeroth would get the better of her, and she'd find some way to magic herself back there even if it took a thousand years.
