I have no idea where I am but I have encountered a beautiful unicorn in the Shining Split.
She informs me that pets, humans and furry creatures are in extreme danger and that the boat that they were depending on is slowly sinking
The unicorn quickly transports me to Cloud City and wields her horn to release the Griffin. The Griffin gracefully and thankfully flies to the Cloud City Customs Airship Tower. The airship, speedily arrives to the Harbor Port. The boat slowly sinks in the harbor. Everyone is welcome on the airship, but where will we go?
While I await my partners brains getting into overdrive I begin to muse.
I am gob-smacked and at a total loss for thought word or deed at the moment!
Do I have a cunning plan?
I'm afraid not!
So to while away some spare minutes I recall a famous UK radio program that ran for many years
It was (and still is) called Desert Island Discs
Celebrities are interviewed and told they will be marooned on a desert island.
They are then asked to name 6(?) gramophone records (that shows you how old the program is!) together with one book (apart from the Bible [sorry folks we are a Christian nation officially] and Shakespeare.
SOoooooo.... what book do I want on my Kindle (now all hi-tech!)?
PTG Seems to be at a loss but a thought pops into my head...(That's odd, I usually only think of food...)
Um, excuse me but we are talking about repairing a boat, right? What about re-purposing the wood the Gnome builders used to make the new coffee/tea bar? They said it was specially treated so no liquids would stain or permeate it...
What a good idea!
As I am also Keeper of the HOS Repository I have access to ALL the inventory.
If we use up the stock there it will soon get renewed as our worthy citizens are always frantic in their game play.
I am just about to tell my broom about the list of materials that our friend Kat has suggested, when a very bedraggled and wet little dog hurls into the Tea Room.
It has a shake to rid its coat of rank fetid water and then leaps onto Charlie' lap
A very strange canine conversation then occurs between the dog, some unseen ethereal being and Charlie.
The outcome of this is that our dog just managed to escape from my hired boat before it sank into the harbor!
The look of horror on Charlie's face eased when she found that it was the VERY last creature to escape and that the whole "zoo" together with all of our packed storage are ensconced in a very large blimp which is at this moment hidden under the harbor walls.
So I now need another cunning plan
I AM SITTING OUT OF THE WAY WAITING TO LEAVE. WHEN ALL OF A SUDDEN A WET BEDRAGGLED DOG RACES INTO THE TEA ROOM, SHAKES AND JUMPS INTO MY LAP. IT IS NICKIE MY SLED DOG. I WANTED TO ASK HOW HE HAD GOTTEN HERE SINCE I HAD LEFT HIM WITH MY SON. THEN I NOTICED A GHOST HAD COME IN WITH HIM. THE GHOST HAD BEEN A SAILOR, HE'S LIVED AT MIRROR LAKE. HE SAID AN AIRSHIP HAD COME FOR ALL THE PETS AND CARGO ON THE SINKING SHIP. I ASKED IF THE ELVES WERE OK. YES, HE SAID THEY HAD HELPED GET THE PETS OUT. WHAT OF THIS LITTLE SCAMP. HE LAUGHED, HE HAD STOWED AWAY SO NO ONE KNEW HE WAS THERE. BUT AS THE SHIP SANK UNDER THE WATER HE POPPED UP AND SWAM TO SHORE. I DO NOT KNOW HOW HE FOUND HIS WAY HER BUT HE DID.
I THANKED THE SAILOR. ASKED IF HE WOULD BE STAYING IN MIRROR LAKE OR WOULD HE TRAVEL WITH US TO DELPHI. HE SCRATCHED HIS HEAD, NO MY PLACE IS WITH PETE. WELL THANK YOU FOR YOUR ASSISTANCE. AND LETTING ME KNOW THE REST ARE SAFE.` OKAY, TROUBLE LET'S GET YOU CLEANED UP YOU STINK OF DEAD FISH. I TOOK HIM TO THE ENCLOSURE FOR A QUICK BATH.
AND STOPPED TO SEE IF DOC POPPET WAS IN HIS OFFICE. HE WAS HE HAD SENT MOST OF HIS GEAR AHEAD BUT HE WAS PACKING THE REST IN THE BAGS HE WOULD CARRY. JUST THING HE MIGHT NEED BEFORE EVERYTHING WAS UNPACKED. HE HAD PUT THE CHIPS IN THIS BAG. NOT SURE HOW SOON NEW PETS WOULD START TO ARRIVE IN DELPHI. HE CHIPPED TROUBLE. AND WE WENT BACK TO THE TEA ROOM TO WAIT FOR PTG TO LEAD US TO THE PROMISED LAND.
Not sure of why or when, but evidently I fell asleep. Not sure what it was, but something woke me. I looked around, but Grim was still sleeping and the animals seemed to be sleeping off their play.
Needing something to eat and drink, I got up from. M y chair and headed into the kitchen. Scrounging around to see what there was, I realize that all is quiet; in fact, too quiet. I head into the main room and no one is there. Looking outside at the pet annex, nothing there as well. Then it hits me, we have been forgotten and left behind.
I start to talk to myself wondering what we are going to do, how would we defend ourselves? Suddenly I remember the trusted crowbar; well, at least we have a weapon. Now, I need a plan for when we are finally attacked. Sitting down, I close my eyes to concentrate on planning.
When I open them again, I am back in the room with the sleeping Grim and our sleeping pets. I realize it was only a dream but something doesn’t feel right. I suddenly feel exhausted and drained. A heaviness comes over me, a strong need to sleep that shouldn’t be there. I get up from my chair and take 1 step forward before I can go to get help, I am out like a light on the floor.
Cliff hanger alert...to be continued... A question to ask yourself, is this a dream within a dream or a sneak attack of some sort?
AMME, I JERK LOOK AROUND, SHE IS NOT HERE. I WAS HEARING HER THEN NOT. WHAT THE.
I GET UP GO TO PTG. HE IS DEEP IN THOUGHT. I KNOW HE IS TRYING TO COME UP WITH A PLAN.
I GET HIS ATTENTION. PTG, SOMETHING IS WRONG. SOMETHING IS VERY WRONG. AMETHYST, DO YOU KNOW WHERE SHE IS. IF SO WE MUST GO TO HER. SHE WAS THERE AND THEN GONE. I CAN NOT HEAR HER THOUGHTS EVEN WHEN PEOPLE SLEEP THEIR THOUGHT ARE THERE. HERS ARE GONE.
PTG's Fairy Godmother looks over at the Genie (they are both exhausted from monitoring the Dark Tower and trying to keep an eye on Adrian in the Temple of Justice).
From the pigeons, she has learned that somehow the boat in which everyone was planning to escape has suffered irreparable damage and has actually sunk to the ocean's bottom. She has also learned that somehow Adrian was able to read some of their minds to learn of their plans of departure. It was he who somehow managed its destruction.
Unable to contact Seeker (for she knows not where the Gnomes went), she does what she can to aid her beloved God Son....... With the Genie creating a mind diversion to confuse Adrian, she is able to get the pigeons on the Flying Boat to guide it to outside the Tea Room, and pull a tarp over it after placing it in the Lion's Den constructed near the Tea Room. One of the pigeons has a message for Playingthegame attached to his leg and he has been instructed to find him once the boat has been properly moved and hidden.
(Included in the note are instructions for how to use the Amulets all of them are wearing to set them to "static" so that Adrian can no longer reach out and determine their plans.)
The Flying Boat has long had the Undetectable Extension Charm performed on it -- there are galleys, rooms, compartments galore once boarding the boat and going "down below" so there should be no problem with handling the overflow from the airship that is also being used.
Only 5 days left ..... surely they can continue to thwart Adrian for that amount of time.
B - O - O - M !!! ..... Smoke is coming from the Dark Tower!
I am writing this from my new quarters at Delphi
After the Record Book was destroyed, Sebastien and I ( as "Diaphanous Diane") , transported to Delphi as I could no longer be of assistance to my fellow inmates there as my knee was still casing me problems. Here I was supervising the ghost players in the setting up of the new rooms for the other inmates.
Sebastien had every intention to go back and assist the others in escaping since he was aware of the problems with the ship. He was especially concerned with Charlie and her large assortment of pets and had gathered several of the original MC carpetbags to take back to transport them. However, during our journey we ran into problems finding our way to the Delphi nexus. There was some "static" trying to prevent us from using the mirror portal. When we finally arrived, Sebastien was exhausted.
What had caused the "static?" Was it a natural occurrence, or had someone sensed the mirror's use as a means of escape? In either case, we decide it would be dangerous at this point to use the mirrors as by using them we could either transport the danger to Delphi or worse, lose the other inmates during the transition.
My only source of news has been Annaleise, since she is in both places. Annaleise cannot help us defeat Adrian as he is a main character and she cannot change or rewrite his storyline in that universe. She can only cause havoc by manipulating the various objects within the game and causing glitches.
Since this has started Annaleise had been smiling at me. As if she had something in mind and was waiting.
Waiting for permission maybe? For my permission?
"Annaleise, I want you to help Charlie and the others. Do whatever is necessary. Just do not let the danger they are in follow them here."
Annaleise laughed and began to dance. She then disappeared.
I have done all I can. All I can do is wait.
