[video] proper story's supposed to start at the beginning

[It took the Kid awhile to figure out this...whatever it is. Magical communication-y thing. There was nothing like this back in Caelondia. Fortunately magical bullshit tends to be somewhat intuitive.]

[Now here's a kid who ain't got a clue what's going on. His face is half-hidden behind an umbrella and he's not looking straight into the camera; more off to the side, as if he's not sure where to look. And he speaks like he's definitely not used to public speaking.]


...'Preciate a free bed an' all, but I'm confused. Would be fair pleased if someone could explain where I am. Never seen any place like this.

[He rubs the back of his head awkwardly.] M' lookin' for a big 'ol hunk 'o flyin' land, 's called the Bastion. An' any o' the folk who were on it. Mighta, uh...appeared here with me. Name of Zia, Zulf an' Rucks.

I'm not sure if people by those names are here. I'll do my best to explain this place to you, though. It's called Wonderland and it seems to be a world separate from those each of us came from.

Yes. Many of us come from similar worlds, but there are distinct differences between them. Some people are from worlds that are completely different, though.

A little girl fell down a rabbit hole.
She ended up in a world with smoking insects and mocking turtles of old.
She displeased the Queen, off with her head,
but before that happened she returned home instead.

[Zulf's face, though still wan, lights up. He smiles and it reaches his sunken eyes.]

Zia is here. I have seen her appear in this journal. She is well, I believe, though I have sadly been unable to find her, as I am supposed to rest.

I am very much relieved to find you here.

[He means it. His feelings on the Kid, Zia and Rucks are still very mixed, but a familiar face is soothing. Plus, unlike Zulf, the Kid wasn't responsible for the Calamity at all. That makes it easier to forgive him.]

[Zulf, still smiling, shrugs.]

I am quite well, thank you for asking. My condition has been improving and my wounds have been healed, thanks to the ministrations of Mister Seta, Miss Jones and Miss Gainsborough.

[The first thing he did upon getting up was ask the closet for a book on "local manners" and got one for 20th Century Earth.]

Zulf! I've been looking for you, but this place feels big as the city sometimes. Where are you?

Zia!

I am on floor five, in room sixteen. It is quite pleasant -- furnished like a true Ura bedroom! I would be honoured if you were to pay a visit. This, of course, applies to the Kid, too.

[He winces when he says "the Kid" -- he sorely wishes there was a more formal way of referring to him. "The Kid" feels a little condescending and ungentlemanly.]

I'll come and see you right away, then.

[ added with an adorably stern frown ] And don't you dare try any ridiculous "mannerly" things like standing until I take a seat or anything, you're hurt, and I just won't have it.

[Zulf's handwriting is impeccable and a little froofy. He writes quickly, but precisely.]

Zia and I are of the same people, though she is much younger than I. I suppose her parents were a touch old-fashioned and chose a very traditional name for their offspring.

Meanwhile, my own name is rather common among the Ura, especially for men of my generation.

huh!
where i come from we hardly use z's for like
anything.
and putting it in names is kind of like a way to be like
LOOK AT MY KID HE'S SUPER SPECIAL.
twangything: (sure you didn't drop that)

[video] hurr durr i tagged you in a timely manner. :P

[personal profile] twangything 2013-04-13 11:51 pm (UTC)(link)
You're here! [ Zia is clearly thrilled to see you, Kid, judging by the bright smile and the almost-squee-like tone in her voice. ] Zulf is here, so I've heard, I haven't found him yet, but I'm so glad you're here, too.
twangything: (twangy thing on purpose?)

[personal profile] twangything 2013-04-14 02:15 am (UTC)(link)
[ She loves that little smile. Someone might have a little crush. ] I'm glad to see you're all right. Only person left to worry about is Rucks. And Lil' Anne and Squirt and Feathers, but I figure they can manage well enough on their own, if it comes down to it.
