*reaches the top of the stairs with the group of prisoners*

Excuse me. Pardon me. Excuse me. Sorry! I beg your pardon.

*emerges into a long corridor virtually identical to the one we were just in*

...Well now where on earth are we? Lumos!

*peers down the length of the corridor in both directions*

Well. I think I'd best go investigate. We ought to be reasonably certain of where we're going first if there are people who can't walk. Wait here, I won't be a moment.

*takes Archie's candle in one hand and wand in the other and goes some distance down the hallway...then comes to a familiar juncture*

Oh! But this is where we...we were just here! When we rescued... I wonder if...?

*follows the rough-hewn tunnel back to the room where Archie spent so many long miserable years...sees his books and drawings still scattered about the place, and withdraws an empty knapsack*

Arrangio!

*all the books and drawings go flying into the knapsack, leaving the cell looking very bleak and barren*

*takes a moment to look around, wondering how anyone could bear living in such a place for so long...then rejoins the others*

I think I know the way out from here. At least, I hope I do. We got rather sidetracked the last time we were...

*spots Loki and Sam coming up the stairs*

Unless...Mister Loki, do you still have that mouse about you, by any chance?

I do, indeed.

*takes out the mouse and winds it up*

*to the mouse*

If you would be so kind as to show us the way out?

*sets it on the ground and watches it zoom off*

That way.

If Archie has managed to destroy the dam - and I think we can safely assume he has - I don't see why the general population can't just follow the river until they reach a settlement. We cannot sacrifice our supplies to care for all of them.

Speaking of Archie...if you're letting this lot out, he'd better be somewhere safe. Most people in here have lost someone because of him. They might believe he was forced to do it and they might not, but to some it won't even matter.

Oh. Er. Come to that...um...have you got a hat or anything? *puts on the shades and headwrap Sybil fishes out of her bag* Cheers. Not good having a face like everyone's worst enemy at a time like this.

*turns back to you*

Maybe you'd better say something to them all before we let them out? You know, tell them they're free and where they can get water and all that.

I'll do it. I don't trust Mister Low-key here not to muck it up.

*walks down the center hallway of the cells like a queen, the inmates go silent and watch*

*puts on The Regal Voice* Noxs is dead. *some of the inmates cheer* In a few moments, we will release you all from your cells.

*motions to the rest of you to start unlocking cells*

You are free to go wherever you choose, but know this: there are still some guards and raptors about. Take care. My advice would be to follow the river, but you are now free people and can do as you wish. Fair thee well!

*stands aside as inmates begin to exit*

I'm kinda all on my lonesome. And I donnae really have a plan. It's not like I was expecting today's escape attempt to go any better than my previous ones.

If you've got a plan, I wouldn't mine tagging along if you'd be open to that idea.

Date: 2014-03-26 10:11 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] samtyler1973.livejournal.com
Yeah, me too. I've got some questions I'd like to ask Archie, if you know where he is. Think he might be able to help me start looking for someone I've lost.

Excuse me -- did I hear you say Doctor Watson was here?

Date: 2014-03-27 05:29 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] just-vanessa.livejournal.com
A doctor, you mean? I'm afraid not. I have first aid training, but that's about as far as I go.

You'd think a prison this size would have a doctor, wouldn't you, but I don't remember ever seeing one. They knew how to keep us patched up enough to stagger off to work every morning, and apart from that they didn't take much interest in our health.

From: [identity profile] just-vanessa.livejournal.com
In fact, I've never met either of them myself. But their legend persists at the Diogenes, and I can just imagine the reaction if I go home and report that Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson were wandering about this place and I just left them to it.

My name's Vanessa, by the way. If Richard were here to handle the introductions, he'd say something like "the incomparable Vanessa", but it's just Vanessa, really. Richard and I are agents of the Diogenes Club, if that means anything to you.

And you? How did you come to be on first-name terms with the Great Detective, if that's not too nosy a question?

The way things are at the moment, the quickest way is probably just to walk straight out the front doors along with everyone else. You were saying just before I interrupted that you were worried about a large group with a definite destination attracting attention, and you're probably right, but if you're able to make more of your friends invisible you could pass for a smaller group.

...we could pass for a smaller group. If you don't mind me tagging along?

Could be, but I haven't seen much of the place outside my cell. I didn't exactly get the guided tour when I arrived.

*looks at the bottleneck by the door*

I may have been wrong about following the crowd being the quick way out, anyhow. We might have time to look around a bit.

I wonder if these people were organised enough to have a confiscated equipment locker? Most of my kit's replaceable, but there were one or two things I'd quite like to get back.

!!!!!!!

*waves hand about in front of face and can't see it*

Oh...this is...unbelievably bizarre. Ow!

*winces as a prisoner treads on invisible foot*

Listen, wherever we're going, let's do it quickly, eh? I don't fancy getting trampled any more than I do getting lynched in effigy. Ouch!

*glares at Loki's exploratory pinch*

Very funny.

*is giving you SUCH a look if only you could see it*

Can we please get out of here? It looks like there's a bottleneck brewing at the front door. *shouts* Oi! One at a time! Everyone'll get out fine if we don't all stampede like a herd of elephants!

*forgot own invisibility for a moment...sees all the prisoners looking around in confusion for the source of the voice...much quieter*

...Oops. I hope I don't sound like him, too. Noxs. We'd better get going before I accidentally start a riot or something.

*clears throat*

You heard him! *gestures to Loki* One at a time!

*pulls an extraneous bit of ribbon from hem of dress*

Sam, where's your ankle? I'll tie this on you so we don't lose you. I'd put it on your wrist, but some people might be frightened by a floating ribbon.

*holds hand out for your guidance to your ankle*

*reaches out VERY carefully and takes your wrist - it's unexpectedly difficult to aim when you can't see your own hands - and gently guides it to ankle's (hopeful) location*

*admires ribbon when it's attached*

Wow. That's...a really good idea, actually. Might help me walk, too...bit scary putting your feet down when you can't see where your feet actually are.

*waggles ankle about and smiles at the way the ribbon moves*

I feel like a show pony.

*slowly and carefully follows Sybil and Vanessa to the confiscated goods room (http://small-things.livejournal.com/12047.html?thread=474127#t474127)*

Oi. D'you reckon they've got your archery stuff in here?

And by "Archie", I meant "Oliver".

*all these Midgardians look the same*
