"Take whatever you like," Aden smiled. "Half of all this, even. We found it together, right?" It was only fair. He wasn't about to claim all of it, unless all Crow really wanted was that gem. Maybe he and the monsters wouldn't have stumbled into this area if they hadn't encountered Crow, so the least they could do was offer him half of the treasure.

Of course, the immediate problem right now was getting it all the way back to Ymir. They could try carrying it, but then they would have to navigate their way back through the wreck.

"Well, I was thinking... instead of trying to haul this outta here and all the way back to Ymir, why don't we just call him to us?" Aden grinned. Wouldn't that be easier than trying to figure out just how they were carrying everything - treasure, books and all? He realized that having a giant golem plow its way over here to retrieve them was going to make a mess of the Ship Graveyard, but he figured that wasn't much of a problem. After a while, new shipwrecks would arrive and traces of their adventure here would vanish.

Half of the treasure? Crow stared at the crate and tilted his head a bit. Not only did he not need it, he had no way to carry it all. It wasn't like he had a home to return to, either. He loved, and would love to have the shiny stuff, but there's only so much a tea kettle and a small leather satchel can carry. "Hahaha, I'd have nowhere to put all that!" He chuckled, "Nah! You can put it to better use anyway." He said, putting the gem he picked out in his satchel with his personal photo.

Crow gave a slightly mischievous smile as an idea came to mind, "Maybe you can make me something you think I'd like or something?" He suggested, though it wasn't like Aden had to. The doll had what he wanted. As far as calling the big guy to come get them, he didn't really care so long as when Ymir got there, it wouldn't flood the ship they were on. That would be lame. And they'd probably die.

"Fine by me as long as I don't end up in the water. I can't swim." He said, smiling back at his new friend sheepishly. Aden likely knew what he was doing, though. It seemed hed done stuff like this a lot before.

"Sure, why not?" If that was all Crow wanted, then Aden could do that. Making something for him shouldn't be too much of a problem. They could talk about it later, once they were out of here. Crow said that he couldn't swim and while Aden could - and Crosby and Fleury could do so, to an extent - it was better if they all got out dry.

Now, he didn't have any special way to call Ymir - no spells or anything like that. His method of getting the Plant Golem to go to him was pretty straightforward.

"Keep an eye out - we don't know what else is lurking in here besides us." If some kind of creature came crawling out to attack them, then they had to be ready to fend it off. Aden approached one side of the room and examined it. Satisfied that it was high enough above the water, he stepped back, inhaled and then whistled loudly.

Silence. It was soon broken by a rumble, then a quake, then the sound of planks getting ripped out and shattering as Ymir's fingers tore through the side of the ship. Fresh air and sunlight flowed in through the large hole he had created. "See, no problem," Aden said as he stepped over, peering out of the hole. He pointed up along the kneeling golem's arm, which formed a bridge of sorts to the top. "See that landing up on his chest, with the doors? We just gotta get everything up there." They could just shove everything into the Monster Barn for now and figure stuff out once they got home.

Crow tilted his head a bit after the exceptionally loud whistle, but apparently the sound was able to carry far enough for this gargantuan plant monster to be able to hear him. Actually, how could a mass of rock and plant hear? Something told him that trying to make sense of it would just give him a huuuge headache, so he decided not to question it for now.

All they had to do was get the crate up there, which seemed easy enough to him. Though while the golem's arm made a bridge to the top, it seemed like a pretty steep climb. It would be a little hard to climb all the way up, but he'd definitely give it a try. With a slight grunt, he lifted the heavy crate. His arms giving a metallic groan of protest. "Huh.. that's new." Was the damp sea air bad for him? He thought he was rustproof, but maybe not. He'd have to check that.

With the crate in his arms, he began his stubborn trek up to the platform Aden had indicated. About half way, his arms began to hurt from strain, so he put the crate down for a moment to check on his arms. With the sleeves pushed up the separate plates and metal joints that made up his arms were on display. Nothing looked wrong with them, though. Maybe it was just heavy enough to cause even him difficulty? Seemed likely. There was a lot of metal and rock in there. After the pain disipated, Crow picked it right up again, continuing on to the platform.

Aden hadn't been expecting Crow to just pick up the entire crate and carry it up there. But he suspected that there was a good reason why the kid was so strong, especially after he heard the metallic groan from Crow's arms when he picked up the heavy load. Going over to the books, the Earthmate picked up a thick, heavy hardcover and offered it to Crosby.

"Here." Crosby clucked, grabbed the book with her talons and proceeded to flutter up the length of Ymir's arm. Fleury soon followed with a small stack of books in his arms, hopping over the rocky bumps along the way. Aden then picked up the rest of the books and, after making sure there wasn't anything else they wanted, started heading up as well. Going up Ymir's arm was like trying to get up a rocky hillside, but after a few years with the golem, Aden had no trouble at all, even though he was carrying quite a bit.

Once he got to the landing, Aden pushed open the doors and stepped into the Monster Barn. Back in his world, this would be where he was keeping any monsters who weren't living on the islands he grew crops on. Since he now had a proper barn at home on the farm, this barn was, for the most part, empty. It served more like a living space for both him and the monsters whenever they were out traveling together.

"Just set 'em down wherever, guys," he said, stacking the books he was carrying up on a nearby crate. "They won't slide around or anything." No matter how Ymir was leaning, everything was always upright in here as if he was standing. It was some kind of magical golem ability, he guessed.

Crow gradually made his way up to the platform, and the barn by extention. Once he made it a good ways away from the entrance, he set it down and rubbed his arms, hoping the soreness would go away. He didn't really want to do first aid on himself in front of a new friend, after all! Aden would probably figure out what he was at some point. He didn't need to speed up that process.

Besides. Dying had been a whole lot more painful than this. He could suck it up for a while. "Alrighty, that everything we're collecting?" He asked, smiling wide at Aden. This area was pretty cool, though he found it... interesting that they were technically inside a living thing. He honestly wasn't sure how he felt about it.

At the moment, though that was mostly because the thought of someone using the inside of his chest to get around seemed super uncomfortable. "Where are we headed to now?" Curious as he was, he tried to reign in his excitement. It could be an awfully long trip, he didn't know.

Where to now? "The Eastern Continent, I guess," Aden replied, stepping back outdoors and onto the landing. "C'mon!" Still a lot of time left in the day, right? They could use that to explore the ocean while heading home - it shouldn't take them all that long to get back to dry land. Fleury followed him back out, but Crosby simply found a pile of hay to nestle into. She had her adventure. She was done for today.

Aden surveyed the Ship Graveyard, which now spread out across the water below. Mostly, he was checking to see if there was anything ready to jump out of the shipwrecks to attack them. Not the little things, though - they didn't pose a threat to Ymir. Aden was looking for giant monsters, the kind that liked hiding in the water until something got really close.

Well... nothing. Kind of disappointing, actually. Getting into a fight with a giant creature was one of the more exciting things to do out on the ocean. But they might run into something while they were traveling, so there was that.

Aden lifted his foot and set it down again with a light stomp, signalling Ymir to move. Rising back up so he was standing straight, the giant golem turned and trudged back out and away from the Ship Graveyard. The water shook with his movements, breaking at the surface and forming waves around his massive legs. Ymir's steps might seem on the slow side, but his strides covered so much ground that it didn't really matter just how slow he was actually moving.

Crow lifted his head as Fleury and Aden left the little room. Curious, he followed them back out onto the platform. They had quite a view up here, and it really drove home how lucky he was in getting Aden to bring him back. It didn't look like there was any way back to land from there.

Aden seemed a bit disappointed by something before they began to move, so Crow scanned the waves but found nothing in particular. Just ocesn. "What are you looking for? I don't see anything." The golem's movements were sluggish, but they seemed to be getting away from the graveyard fairly quick. "What is the Eastern Continent like, anyway? Is it nice?"

Crow was eager to see all that there was to see, and meet everyone he could. So much so that he forgot that he had essentially been kidnapped.

"Just seeing if anything shows up to say good-bye to us." Nothing so far. Just calm waters and clear skies. There wasn't anything wrong with that - it was the perfect weather. It meant that they would get to where they were going just a little bit quicker.

When Crow asked about the Eastern Continent, Aden thought about it for a moment. "Well, it's kinda got a little of everything. We should see a big city right on the shore as we approach." They weren't going to stop at Dunwall, though - there wasn't really anything all too interesting there. The people living there probably wouldn't appreciate a giant golem stopping by, either. "Past that are a couple of towns - one's like, haunted, apparently - and then there's a big area with canyons. That's where I live."

It was a little dry for farming, but Aden made it work. The right tools, abilities and persistence allowed him to grow anything pretty much anywhere. "There's a few other areas on the continent, but there's nothing to the north. It's just... empty." Kind of weird. Aden wondered if the Goddess was going to put anything there eventually.

Saying goodbye? They had been alone out there, hadn't they? Crow squinted out into the distance, and realized he was likely referring to getting attacked. He was pretty sure most things were smart enough to not attack a gigantic plant/rock monster, but maybe things liked to attack giant creatures where Aden was from. He knew that at least for his world, that wasnt the case. Or rather there wasn't something this big to test that theory with but he imagined that"s about how it would go.

At any rate, Aden's description of their destination intrigued him. Big cities meant like, a lot of people right? Like ten or fifteen? That would be really cool to meet everyone. And there were haunted places, too! That would be nice for whenever he was missing home! But what exactly was a canyon... he took a moment to search his files for the term. "So you live in a deep valley with a river running through it?" That was an oddly specific word, but it was useful.

As for the northern part of the continent.. maybe she hadn't picked places to put there yet? He was certainly looking forward to it whenever things were put up there!

"Yeah, something like that." Mostly it was rock, carved out by water that was still there in some places and not in others. It was also possible that the Goddess just made it to look that way for whatever reason. Like a lot of the unnamed - as well as a few named - areas of the planet, it was wilderness. The only three places in there that Aden knew living beings frequented was his farm, the village of Mr. Saturns, and the project he was helping his friends with deeper in.

Not that Aden stuck to just those places. There was a lot in the canyons that begged to be explored, so in his free time, he did just that.

"You'll see it soon enough. But still, the view of the ocean's pretty great up here, right?" The only way to match it was to fly, but Aden felt like traveling on a giant was better. He sat down at the edge of the landing, enjoying the fresh air and the blue expanse all around them. After their adventure down in the shipwrecks, it was nice to return to something like this.

"I've never seen the ocean before." Crow admitted, looking out at the water below with a smile, "Closest I had were rivers, lakes, and worn pictures." He lived in a more urban area at that. So a more apt description of his experience would be 'that one dam and puddles'. The pictures were always too faded to see well.

"I do like it up here, though," Crow amended, realizing that not really knowing what the ocean is like might be viewed as pityable. He didn't want pity. He was fine. "I bet there's lots of stuff I can do here that I couldn't back home, that just makes it more fun."

Sitting with Aden, the robot boy looked around at all the blue, then laid on his back with his legs dangling off the edge. Crow pulled out the purple gem and held it to the light. Maybe there would be stuff to draw with on the mainland. If his friend was here, he'd need a picture to show people.
