=== An Asterisk Beyond the Sky  ===
Ingrid Sorveig Sorgríms: I have learned a great deal from someone who came from another realm. I have learned that the world is not something that only exists within our minds, but rather the ground that lies under our feet. Even if the way we look or the language we use is different, all the worlds are connected, and we can understand each other. What we can gain by connecting the worlds through these gates is more irreplaceable than anything, more wonderful than anything.Olav Friðmar: Now the queen will cut the ribbon –
Mercelída Ygvar I: Okay!
Olav Friðmar: [upset] That was too fast!
