"Honestly, I have no clue," Lin grinned, "Miyuki? Iadrim spent a lot of time with you the last we were here."

Miyuki tilted her head, thinking about it, "I guess so? I mean, we were always doing something exciting last time sooo...."

Well, it wasn't always exciting, she was exaggerating, but since Miyuki knew Iadrim watched a lot of her magic experiments, she assumed Iadrim found it exciting from the way she had always watched Miyuki.

"Exciting?" Nadya asked with a smile.

Gion raised his hands and signed to his wife, who nodded again. "True." To the others, she explained, "He says that new things are usually exciting, whatever it might be."

The palace was not large, so it was not long before they made it to the conference room. The door was open, and inside, Mari, Kyrie and Iadrim's parents were seated at the long table, chatting together.

"Welcome!" Mari greeted them all warmly when she spotted them. She rose from her seat and gestured for everyone to seat themselves.

Immediately, Uruloki emerged from his usual resting place on Kyrie's abdomen and hopped onto the table, hatchling-sized.

"Hope you weren't waiting too long, we weren't aware you were waiting on us," Lin murmured in greeting.

Considering on how it must have taken to get everything set up for the portal.

"Iadrim said that she was going to tell everyone to meet us here," said Dae'er with a bemused glance at her daughter.

Iadrim had the grace to blush, and clasped her hands behind her back. "Sorry, Mama," she murmured. "I'll go get the others now."

As she hurried off again, Cael laughed heartily. "She gets so caught up in the excitement of the moment," he grinned as he took a seat next to his father, pushing back the chair next to him for his wife to sit down.

"You two had better come over here," Uruloki told Gion and Nadya, pointing with his tail at the two chairs directly in front of him.

Miyuki chuckled, "Well it was exciting there for a moment."

What with the portal opening and having people from another land come through. To Miyuki, this was oddly normal, after all her mother's family did it all the time. Now that Miyuki thought about it, why didn't they have the energy drainage and how did they make that permanent portal in the first place? She filed it away for something to think about another time.

While the others chatted together, Kyrie and Uruloki went through the necessary procedure to give Nadya and Gion some of Uruloki's blood and the gift of tongues. Nadya proceeded immediately to join in the conversation with the others, while Gion focused on a seemingly empty seat across the table from him.

Only a few minutes later, Iadrim was back with Andarien, Shoneah and Twig in tow. Shoneah was carrying the boy, piggy-back style, and after greeting those in the room, she helped him off her back and onto a chair.

"Are we ready to begin?" Mari asked, looking around at everyone who had gathered, after introductions had been made.

There were nods all around, hopefully it would go a bit easier now that there was someone else that could see the way Twig saw.

Hopefully, Twig would be okay now, there was uncertainly if he was still taking what his grandfather and mother said badly.

All eyes turned to Gion, but he didn't seem to know quite how to start. He looked around at everyone, his mouth moving silently as he spoke to himself. Finally, he turned to his wife and nodded at her, then looked at the queen and began to sign.

"Gion would like to try to create something called a dreamscape," Nadya explained on behalf of her husband. "It is a skill he learned from a dear friend, and one he has been experimenting with. He has never tried it before with so many people, but since we are all in close proximity to one another, he doesn't foresee any problems."

Gion nodded, then added something else.

"He says," Nadya went on, her eyes on Gion's hands, "that you all will be able to see those with whom you wish to speak, as well. If they are not naturally visible in the dreamscape, he can recreate their images for you all."

Gion nodded his agreement with his wife's explanation, then looked at the others expectantly.

"I must admit, it sounds both more interesting and less time consuming," the queen agreed without hesitation. "What do we have to do?"

Gion smiled, folded his hands in his lap, and relaxed against the back of his chair.

"Isn't that normally works with sleep? Or would a relaxing meditation do?" Miyuki asked with a blink.

Miyuki had heard of the concept once, a long time ago when she last visited Gaia as a child, but she had never heard of anyone making a dreamscape before. Still, it sounded like such an interesting concept.

Immediately, Gion's fingers began to flicker rapidly, and again Nadya translated for him.

"It is not called a dreamscape because it takes place in a dream while a person is asleep, but because you enter a dream-like world that exists only in the minds of those participating in it," the two explained together. "As long as your mind is relaxed and willing, he can create an illusory place for all of us."

She paused, watching her husband's hands for a moment; and then she looked around at the others, looking very curious. "What kind of place do you think would be the most comfortable for Twig?" she asked. "What setting? A city? A town? Inside a home? A forest? Near the ocean? A river?"

"Tent," Twin piped up, his voice cracking slightly. He had left his chair now and was curled up in Kaito's lap.

Nadya and Gion both smiled, and Nadya murmured softly, "A tent it is."

Gion lowered his head and put his hands together, concentrating, and Nadya softly instructed everyone: "Relax in your seats and try not to think about anything. It works the best if you close your eyes."

For those who were use to meditating, this request was quite simple. For others, it would be more difficult, it was hard to not think about anything.
Closing their eyes, they did (or tried to do) as Gion had requested.

Gion didn't begin the dreamscape right away, but gave the others time to relax their bodies and their minds.

Before relaxing himself, Shiro glanced at Holly to see how she was doing. As far as he knew (which was quite a bit, considering they had been dating a while now), she had never studied magic, so she might not know how to meditate properly.

Holly had heard of the theory behind meditation (it was hard not to when one lived in one of Gaia's trading hubs) but she had never practiced it herself. She knew breathing exercises were involved, but she had a lot of trouble focusing. Or rather, she had trouble not thinking of anything.

She wasn't even sure how that even worked to be honest and she was already getting antsy.

Shiro reached over and put his hand on Holly's, hoping that he wouldn't take her by surprise.

"Slow, even breaths," he murmured. "It gets your heart rate down and relaxes your body."

Overhearing the comment, Gion opened one eye and glanced at his nephew. Raising his hands, he signed: If she can't get into the dreamscape herself, you can bring her into it by holding her hands.

Shiro nodded and relayed the message to Holly. "If you need, you just tell me, all right?" he told her quietly.
