[Arslan had tried to stay inside as much as he could yesterday, what with the temperatures being so much colder than he was used to, and that strange white stuff on the ground.  He listened in curiously on the phone calls from yesterday, and attended school as Bill had said he should to avoid being droned, but he was still confused.  Apparently, said white stuff laying on the ground was called snow?  He'd never seen any before, not in Pars, or Shindra, or anywhere nearby that he had been.]

[So after school, Arslan had decided to see what exactly was up with this snow, and had begun to play with it.  Sifting it through his hands a little, he soon found that if you pressed it tightly, it would pack together.  But he also found it would freeze the hands quite well.  So after a while of playing with it, he found himself a spot to just sit down and blow into his chilled hands to try to warm them, as he looked at the rest of the changes of the town.  He would have to ask Bill, or someone else, what all this was about.]

[If you go by him, he'll probably glance at you briefly, before going back to looking at the lights and trying to warm his hands.  He still can't necessarily tell a drone from regular people.]

...what are you doing, child?

[Arslan looks up from where he's blowing at his hands, and after a moment as he recollects you, he speaks.]

Warming up. This stuff is cold.

And where are you from, to not know snow and know me? Positioned between the rivers of Tigris and Euphrates?

[Arslan nods softly]

From Pars. We don't get this there. I think everyone's been calling it snow?

Yes, snow. A foul creation.

Why is that? It seems harmless enough.

[He finally stands, obviously to move enough to keep from getting colder.]

Because it is so beautiful yet not made by me.

[Have a bit of a stare, before he smiles faintly]

Neither was the world. Is it also a foul creation?

A different prospect since I own the world.

If that was true, and you're truly Gilgamesh, wouldn't you own snow as well? It is part of the world.

Hmph. What is your name again, child?

From: [identity profile] kinpika.livejournal.com
And you hail from my lands?

[Comes outside. Goes back inside. Comes back and walks over to Arslan, passes him some mittens]

YOU MIGHT WANT THESE.

[Arslan looks at them, and then at Death. He starts to put them on as he talks.]

Thanks. Do you have this snow on Discworld?

Date: 2010-12-10 02:20 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] likescats.livejournal.com
OH YES. ESPECIALLY UP IN THE MOUNTAINS.

THOUGH THERE ARE PARTS OF IT THAT DOES NOT SEE SNOW.

IT'S A RATHER LARGE WORLD.

From: [identity profile] arslansenki.livejournal.com
I see. We don't have snow in Pars.

HOW ARE YOU FINDING IT?

Date: 2010-12-10 02:29 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] arslansenki.livejournal.com
Interesting! It's cold, but it goes together really well. I guess that's how that holds?

From: [identity profile] arslansenki.livejournal.com
So... um, why are things decorated? Is there a festival coming up?

[Sorry Death, you are presently dealing with the fourteen-year old side rather than the Prince]

Date: 2010-12-10 02:48 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] likescats.livejournal.com
YES. APPARENTLY IN THIS WORLD IT IS CALLED CHRISTMAS. THOUGH IN MY OWN WE WOULD BE GETTING READY FOR HOGSWATCH.

[Are you kidding, Death loves Hogswatch...]

bwahaha....there is a reason I have this icon...

From: [identity profile] likescats.livejournal.com
I CAN NOT TELL YOU MUCH ABOUT CHRISTMAS BUT WHERE I COME FROM, EVERY WINTER COMES THE HOLIDAY OF, HOGSWATCH.

IT CELEBRATES THE WINTER SOLSTICE AND THE START OF THE NEW YEAR. IT IS ALSO THE NIGHT THAT THE HOGFATHER COMES AND GIVES OUT TOYS TO CHILDREN WHO HAVE BEEN GOOD THAT YEAR.

Yay! Hogfather!

Date: 2010-12-10 03:00 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] arslansenki.livejournal.com
Oh. I get the solstice. Yet, why give presents to good children? Is it a way to thank them for being good for the year?
