“Yeah, but you also don't want them to fall out again, right?” he replies with a smile. It looks easier than it'll will be, but they'll have to figure out how to make it weather-proof. Sure neither is really affected by it, but the house will stand longer if it doesn't suffer from damages. And it's just nicer. Also, he wants a garden, a greenhouse, eventually so this is a good way to test it out.

"True, getting them to stay in will be harder." He thinks for a bit. "Maybe put little holes in the corners, so we can tie them into place?"

„Wouldn't that make them break easier?“ He has a plan, it's just going to be a bit more complicate than stacking wood. Probably he'll need to make some woodmaking tools first – or have Palmer show him how to shift in a way that'll be useful.

"Hmm, good point. Maybe if we fabricated them with the holes already in place it would help?" He wonders idly how bulletproof glass is made.

“I thought we could do slots in the frame and fit them in with glue” Something he can do, with some tools. “Or we do one of those many-colored panels that look like they're puzzled together from scraps. I always liked those.” That they're more a thing for churches he can't know, only saw them in the city and enjoyed the soft colors.

Daniel blinks irritated at that question. “It has to be a picture?” No art in Republic, though Palmer already must know that, since he barely knew any music either and was so hesitant about painting, even if he liked it, just because it wasn't something useful.

Palmer of course means nothing with the question, but sometimes the kid can't judge if it's a serious question or not that important. There are probably pictures he'd like to keep, but they're from a future that doesn't exist yet, so the only thing keeping them alive is his memory. Sometimes that makes him sad.

Palmer just goes back to work, since he's not sure how to help. He tries, but being sensitive isn't really his strong point in a lot of ways.

He just works quietly alongside, the lack of chatter the best hint that not everything is alright. Palmer gives his best, it's just not enough sometimes, especially not with Daniels habit of not talking, relying on subtle hints to get across what was wrong.

Palmer sighs. "I don't think you'll forget. If you do, I'll try my best to remind you." Not that he knows what they were like, but he'll do what he can.

It's meant well, but Palmer doesn't know them. And even if he'd talk more about his family, it'd not be the same. Not that easy to be taken from your time, your family, your planet, when there was no emotionless Thing behind to ease the pain. Daniel still got homesick.

Palmer knows how much it must hurt, but he can't really feel it. For him leaving everything behind was a relief, both to the Thing and to 'Palmer.' As the Thing it would be nerve-wracking to return to people who knew the old Palmer and have to play him perfectly forever, and 'Palmer' would find it terribly morbid to be standing in for a dead man to everyone who knew him.

As usual Daniel doesn't talk about it more, working quietly. One day this might boil over, but that won't make it any easier to talk about. And despite the change being finished some more, he still got tired, didn't want to spend another night alone. „Will you read to me?“ To an extend he's scared of not being able to anymore, despite the exhaustion saying otherwise. Maybe it's just that little habit missing to give him a peace of mind.

He's pretty much randomly picked a book out of the ones they actually have in paper – something from a Stephen King, which made him believe it'd be about kings, having no idea what this author was famous for and that this genre probably wasn't good for any traumatized kid.

Palmer takes one look at the cover and shakes his head. "Stephen King writes horror stories, you'd hate him. How about this?" He grabs a copy of Catch-22, which is at least really funny.

"It was love at first sight. The first time Yossarian say the chaplain he fell madly in love with him.
Yossarian was in the hospital with a pain in his liver that fell just short of being jaundice. The doctors were puzzled by the fact that it wasn't quite jaundice. If it became jaundice they could treat it. If it didn't become jaundice and went away they could discharge him. But this just being short of jaundice all the time confused them.
