> Let's go see Alecto and bask in how much better things have been.
In the last six months, there has not been a single crisis.
There hasn't even been a hand swarm. The only problems have been wildlife, and those are easy enough to solve. More people have moved here--Hestia, Cassandra, Medea, Achilles, Artemis and more. It's starting to feel like a city. Like you're a people.
You walk through the pavilion that is hosting the wedding and see Euterpe off to the side, talking with Atropos. Sitting off a bit from them is Alecto.
Alecto is six months pregnant. All indications have shown that the "father" was Arachne. The horrible monster refuses to answer much about this fact except to laugh, which usually results in her terrarium being forcibly inverted and shaken. This gets a lot of cursing and empty threats but no answers.
She's not taken the news well. She's spent most of her days distant. Sullen. She breaks a lot of things by accident these days. You sort of wonder how much of an accident it is.
You start to approach her, but Euterpe stops you and shakes her head.
"She...she needs her space, right now. She's not doing very well." She says.
