[So there’s something a little bit different about Jesse that’s almost immediately noticeable the moment the feed starts, due to the way her hair is tucked behind her ears. And that’s the fact that her ears are kind of POINTY, now; she looks like an elf right out of Lord of the Rings.

She also looks CONCERNED.

There’s something a little off about the shadows behind her, too. But the reason for that will be apparent in just a second. She gives the feed a nervous little smile.]

So you’d think I’d be used to the things Wonderland does by now. But it turns out I can still be surprised.

[The next sentence comes out in a rush.]

So I kind of have WINGS.

[She shifts the camera so they’re visible, and it’s her wings that are responsible for the weird shadows behind her. And they’re gorgeous, don’t get her wrong; starting out cream at her back they’re a warm rusty sort of dark orange by their wingtips. But they’re WINGS. She’s pretty sure she’s not supposed to have wings, even if she had ended up a metahuman. She’s never heard of a metahuman having wings, anyway.

Not on her Earth, at least.

They’re a little rumpled, too, because, well, NEW FEATHERY APPENDAGES.]

Anyone have any pointers on how to use them? Because I’ve kind of never had an extra set of appendages before and it’s taking some getting used to.

[A LOT of getting used to. They move on their own, half the time, instincts new and REALLY unfamiliar and she’s tripped over them and gotten tangled more times than she can count. And that’s not including the falling on her face. Or butt.]

And if I’m going to be any use AT ALL I need to learn how to use them. Fast.

[Because they ARE useable. She knows she can fly, instincts she didn't have a day ago are telling her she can. She just... doesn't know how. Doesn't have the muscle memory. Yet.]

[Peridot has explained the setting, more or less. Dipper has explained the mechanics. There is, however, one more part of this event that apparently needs to be clarified, and apparently nobody else is going to do it so APPARENTLY Lapis has to. She does not care for giving exposition, nor is she suited to it; let's roll. Specifically, let's roll a 3 for diplomacy, perfectly fine for someone who isn't trying anyway.]

If anyone's curious, all the monsters were once ordinary gems now condemned to a variety of torturous existences. Feel free to hit them until they explode into puffs of smoke, it's not gonna make their day any worse.

And yeah, that'll leave their gems, as in the little bits of rock that are the core of their being. I'm pretty sure Wonderland gave everyone the ability to put those in bubbles, which will stop them from reforming and get them out of the way. If, you know, you don't want to go around breaking gems. Half of them have already BEEN shattered, and it obviously didn't do much good the first time. They're still alive. It's not even less effort.

Of course, none of this is exactly real anyway, so who's judging, right?
