Making an entrance

The door, as it often does, opens.
Instead of its usual destination of an immaculately clean insect nest, it leads to a public eating establishment that most definitely was not there this morning.

Unexpected doors are not unheard-of here in Oz, and in the Emerald City they are always safe to enter. So he adjusts his glasses, checks his top hat and waistcoat in the nearest mirror, and walks in.

In the establishment is a girl, who appears to be conversing with the bar itself: "- very kind of you. Uh, how about a chocolate malt?"

And there appears a chocolate malt.

"Thanks."

She does blink at him, but that's all she does.

"Uh, hi, I'm Bella Swan. The bar says the place is called Milliways and it sometimes shows up behind doors but when you leave it'll be the same time and place you came from if normal conventions apply."

"It doesn't consistently show up, so it's not going to stay next to her palace, Bar says."

That's quite all right, appears a napkin. It happens all the time. Can I interest you in something to drink? First is free.

The girl sips her malt.

I'm native to Milliways.

"What's a square meal tablet?"

"Ooh, nice. Highly magnified?"

"Huh. I've never heard of anything like that happening, and for that matter I'm not sure if my plane even has woggle-bugs. Sounds like a design flaw in the projector but you seem to be doing okay."

"Oh, apparently the door opens not only to different places but to different entire worlds. I've never heard of the Emerald City and I'm guessing you don't know where Enwich is likewise."

"I suppose I can't be positive. Bar, do you know?"

Considerably more than a desert separates your homes, replies Bar. You are from different worlds.

I can produce no exact figure, but many hundreds millions at a conservative estimate.

"Wow."

Producing a complete directory would be impractical, obviously, but I can loan and sell books in addition to food and beverages if you'd care to be a touch more specific about what you'd like to know.

"Ooh," says Bella, "books. Wow, I don't know where to start, though."

This environment is poorly suited to the study of languages, due to the ambient translation effect currently allowing you to speak to each other, mentions the bar.

"You have pills for courses of study?" asks Bella. "That the wizard can develop without knowing the field himself?"

"Ha, that sounds interesting. I have to learn things the long way around, and I'm past needing to fill in prerequisites in math and don't know what the other three are."
