    So Tril, my little shapeshifting mischievous fog demon, has been increasingly feeling homesick and lonely. Their perception is that they are away from home with no actual friends or meaningful relationships to be a support network.

    They've increasingly become despondent and they've decided to take drastic measures in an attempt to return home to the Fog.

    In simple terms they are going to commit suicide in hopes that it will have them return to the Fog. It wont. At least not the Fog they came from, their home world.

    I'm looking for a character to witness them reforming by a body of water from a bit of mist or fog at night after their 7 day absence. Someone to have a connection with, even if it's only temporary. Whether that's physical comfort, someone to sit and talk with them or someone who would be fascinated by a shapeshifter enough to try convincing them to hang out with them. I'm pretty open so please hit me up if you have ideas. Heck if someone wants to try capturing a demon in a ring of salt that might work too.

    Basically i'm looking for something to snap Tril out of it, for better or worse.

    Obviously I can only pick one person to actually witness Tril reform, though I'm playing with the idea that they might want to linger in the woods/away from school and the city for a while so other plots might be possible afterwards

    I'm down for throwing Henghai because partial water elemental who likes to be helpful (especially to an elemental-like creature) and is used to given younger people advice, as an ex-doctor, ex-teache, and current school nurse. He also has experience with dealing with trickster types, since he's one himself and his son is a shitstarter too. I'm also down for throwing Smokey, who could potentially become a friend who could help keep them grounded while still participating in shenanigans. Smokey also understands coming to the island with little connection to home, though to a lesser extent. They still have some of that issue, but in a different way now.

    I have two, no three, options I can throw your way... Liliana, my psychopomp could be summoned by the fates to help Tril pass over, but instead and for whatever reason, she decides not to let her kill herself. Maybe she can let her know in some way that the Fog she's returning to is not the Fog she is looking for?

    And Zora, who is a water witch and can often be found meditating near water, and who understands what loss is like, and feeling alone.

    Also, Bel... she is also another choice here. She also has been through a lot lately, and can often be found swimming in the lake.

    I'm leaning towards Smokey being the one to actually stumble upon Tril as they return to corporeal form because it feels like they are most likely to be just out doing whatever when it happens and best fit the kind of interaction I mostly anticipated having.



    Unfortunately Tril isnt going to be stopped and they dont really pass on to the afterlife in the way Liliana is used to so I'm not sure she makes the most sense unless you are interested in threading Liliana there for the actual act and then her realizing Tril's "soul" is the water vapor/Fog they disperse into. It would be a shorter thread and somewhat bleak but might be interesting. At least then someone could report what happened to them (and hold the armor for safe keeping)



    Sazz finding out what happened after Tril is rediscovered (because let's be real, its not going to be that secret and Tril wont deny what happened) and trying to step in to do their thing later makes sense too for a future thread

    I'd be up for that if you wanted. Certainly would be interesting.
