I am normally a gentle soul and love things to be quiet and orderly.
So I do understand PTG's wish for order, I really do.
Sorry PTG, but this little southern belle knows what that word implies.
And, as a person who is being protected by her own "feline" nation, I am a little irked.
But again I am a gentle soul and love order. And at this moment, we need to know who are the present inmates of the Special Room and where they are without notifying the wrong people. A impromptu census so to speak.
So I wrote down my concern and attached the note to a feline messenger to deliver to PTG.
Big Kitty is happy to oblige .
(Have I been around Annaleise too long?)
I am not worried about our animal companions. Nor am I worried about the ghost players.
For Sebastien told me that the portal he found was at Delphi, and that was where he was leading the ghosts at this very moment.
And being who and what he was, he would make sure the animals arrived safely as well.
So I went back to the Record Book and back to studying the history of the Special Room.
While keeping a surreptitious eye on Big Kitty's progress.
Only here would one have a second in command that needs his own second in command to keep him out of trouble.
YOU KNOW BREEZE ANNALIESE IS NOT SUCH A BAD INFLUNCE. SHE KNOWS WHAT IS GOING ON IN THE CASTLE. SHE CAN BE A VERY BIG HELP TO GET US OUT OF HERE AND TO OUR NEW HOME. BUT SHE MUST GET THERE ALSO.

My pet raven flies into the kitchen cawing loudly, What's wrong? The farm has been destroyed by the chaos? OH NO!!! Marino and Janet made it out with a few cows and pigs and got home. Thank Goodness!!!
Okay, deep breath, at least they are safe. Not sure there would have been room for all the farm animals on the ship to tell the truth. Hopefully I can contact them again once we make it to Delphi and they can rejoin us. Gather the others and stay close. She caws again as she wings away.
Out in the dining room all is still chaos as everyone scrambles to prepare for the exodus.
I find Charlie, "The farm was destroyed but my friends managed to escape back to their home with some of the cows and pigs. If all goes well they'll join us when we are settled. I'll have to forage in Delphi for those flying chicks and other food stuffs, but at least they're safe." She is relieved. I'll bet she was wondering how we would get all those critters on the boat too!
I deposit a tray of food on the counter. "Eat up everyone, No sense wasting food and the perishables will keep best in your tummies anyway!" "Oh, and please don't forget we have to take sleepy Grim with us. I've heard so much about her from Mrs. Fletcher, I really want to meet her." I head back to the kitchen for more people and pet food.

Meanwhile .... Playingthegame's Godmother and the Genie are continuing to cajole and watch over Adrian to make sure he keeps his word about the time frame before he searches for Grim himself.
It is totally exhausting work .....If one could hear her thoughts they would hear:
"my arms are weary from wielding my wand in his direction.
The pigeons have mostly gone from the flying boat. The Genie and I remain on the steps to Atlantis --- monitoring and watching the Dark Tower. (For while Adrian remains in the Temple of Justice, he is mentally preparing his destruction .... the steps behind the Iron Knight continue to crumble!)
Oh, dear ...... I must remember to send my most faithful pigeon (for he is tired of being around the female pigeons who are driving him batty; he is ready for some real work again) .. send my most faithful pigeon to my Godson to tell him .... there was one of his friends who removed the wand from the Potion Shop and has tried to figure out how to make it work ..... I forget her name, but he will know .... anyway, the wand ONLY works in this world and from INSIDE the Potion Shop, which is soon to be destroyed. That is the reason she cannot figure out how to use it properly."
I am all ready to leave, bags packed, Buddy sleeping at my feet. I thought I needed a new destination but I have been paying attention to the others and listening in. I have decided that Delphi was the place to go. Now, I am just waiting for the word to head out with the others on our journey to our new home. My camping trip will wait until we are settled in our new home; besides, I don’t remember seeing camping gear around anywhere. Such is my luck and it would be better to go when the weather is warmer anyway.
There seems to be much concern about everyone and everything fitting into Skull Pete's ship ... for those who know Hermione Granger of Harry Potter fame, they will know about the Undetectable Extension Charm. She used it on her "bag" that she carried when she, Harry, and Ron fled the "wedding scene."
Basically, while the outside of an item remains unchanged, the inside can carry all manner of things AND the weight of that item is not affected to the carrier. The Genie has contacted Hermione and been granted permission to use such a charm on Skull Pete's ship.
As passengers, items, and animals enter, they will find space equal to their needs. The ship will merely sit in the water as it would if it were empty. No one will know of their boarding as long as they are discrete.
Amid all the chaos and confusion with my partners packing bags, getting sandwiches and flasks of tea or coffee from the Kitchen I suddenly remember my broom and what it does best!
Sweep dust bunnies which are here in abundance for it to work on
It seems to be very happy and sweeping everything up not nailed down into heaps. Some of these however are being destroyed by the more frisky pets as they play and scamper around their owners.
Since Charlie is keeping a close eye on my broom with a large kitchen knife at hand it has ceased to bat these little rascals outside but instead to work around them, occasionally burying them in the dusty heaps!
It is the dust bunnies that reminds me.
Some of us are not present here!
Even worse, several of the Hospital Wing senior citizens may not even be aware of the impending doom visiting our Realm.
In particular there are two irascible miscreants who are fond of hiding under beds.
I must give them an opportunity to join our merry throng of travelers.
So I need to go there now and warn them!
I tell the others that I very important matter elsewhere.
Telling my broom to transfer into charabanc mode I sweep over to Rooms 2 and 3 of the Hospital Wing.
Sure enough under the cots are two large pairs of eyes staring out at me as I enter their rooms. Dust bunnies everywhere so I have to restrain my broom as I remember only too well the last time it went into operation here!
Hi! Fuzzie, Hi! Blancofluttero I need to talk. It is urgent.
I quickly fill them in on the demise of the BFG Forum, their “virtual deaths if they stay and give them my cunning plan to transport us all into the Realm of Delphi.
“Please, please join us!”
I leave as I am needed urgently back in the Tea Room.
I just hope that they can find convenient places in the new Realm. After all we ARE building a duplicate wing and ordering loads of new huggie jackets of all sizes!
