Oh, good heavens, now what's going on?!

??!

*knows from Gandalf's experience that disembodied voices are generally Not A Good Thing*

*but that ignoring or offending them is also fairly unwise*

Er...yes? May I...help you, at all?

*not at all sure where to make eye contact*

...Right then. Hugh.

*finally remembers manners*

Bilbo Baggins. At your service.

*bows*

They call this place The Epilogue, and I don't believe I've yet met anyone who came to be here of their own accord. By any chance was there a great swirling...cloud, sort of business, that appeared just before everything went all...well, here-shaped?

No, all of us come from other places. I come from Bag End in the Shire. Which is a good deal greener and a good deal less fraught than this place.

But wherever did you live before, where there were no shapes to things? Everything's got a shape. I don't suppose...perhaps...perhaps you lived in a rainbow? *when you don't answer right away, which one assumes passes for disembodied confusion* ...Those bands of colour that appear in the clouds after a good rain?

*looks at own worn, bedraggled clothes*

Well, now you mention it, my poor old togs haven't rightly been themselves since I left home. A good splash of colour certainly wouldn't go amiss.

*holds out faded, crumpled cravat*

*still very confused, but is glad you seem happy*

Well then. Glad that suits.

*admires cravat*

Oh, that's lovely! Perfectly beautiful. Yes, that's a vast improvement.

*starts to put cravat back on...but then remembers we're a long way from the last good bath, and hopes one's personal musk does not offend recently-embodied colours*

Er...normally this particular textile is worn round the neck. Or would you prefer to ride along in my waistcoat pocket?

*fixes cravat loosely so you can see*

There we are.

Well, as soon as we get the dragons loaded up (indicates [livejournal.com profile] smauglock and [livejournal.com profile] temeraire1805), we're off for Mount Axis. The Oracle there helped us find our friends (http://small-things.livejournal.com/7095.html), and after we each make a second sacrifice in return for her help (http://small-things.livejournal.com/6774.html?thread=164470#t164470), she'll show us all how to get home again. Who knows, she might even be able to help you get back to your rainbow.

I suppose it might help to know some of our company. Over there is [livejournal.com profile] capt_crieff, he's a captain and he flies something called air-o-plains. [livejournal.com profile] sybil_t_psychic is a wizard and can do magic. I see you've already met [livejournal.com profile] thepunygod...he's really a nice enough fellow, but it's best to stay on his good side.

[livejournal.com profile] ollie_omen is something called a synth. Apparently he can be pulled apart (http://small-things.livejournal.com/10264.html) and put back together again (http://small-things.livejournal.com/10847.html?thread=369247#t369247) and come up none the worse for it, which is an enviable state of affairs, if you ask me, especially on an adventure like this. [livejournal.com profile] just_vanessa just joined us recently and is looking for her partner Richard.

And over there on the bison skins are [livejournal.com profile] jwatson71 and [livejournal.com profile] archie_keyes. Doctor Watson's been the only thing keeping most of the prisoners in this place in one piece - oh, yes, we just did a tremendous prison break the day before yesterday (http://small-things.livejournal.com/11215.html) - but he ran afoul of the fellow running the jail (http://small-things.livejournal.com/10681.html?thread=351673#t351673) and almost had his goose cooked for his troubles (http://small-things.livejournal.com/10847.html?thread=374879#t374879).

And Archie...well, we're beginning to think he might have something to do with why we're all here (http://small-things.livejournal.com/10681.html). Though I don't suppose it was really his own idea.

So, there we are. If you feel like you're quite up for some adventure, you've certainly come to the right place.

That's the spirit!

*sees [livejournal.com profile] missmollyhooper approaching (http://small-things.livejournal.com/13667.html?thread=533091#t533091)*

Oh hello, I quite forgot about Molly! You'll like her, she's quite the krrruughhhkh -

*nearly strangles as you spot the giant goth spider woman (http://small-things.livejournal.com/13667.html?thread=532323#t532323)*

*mishears what's going on and is still blue from threatening (http://small-things.livejournal.com/13207.html?thread=529559#t529559) [livejournal.com profile] ollie_omen*

Yes, yes, I can turn blue. It's like you've never seen a Frost Giant before.

Ya bunch of racists.

*gives you a plaintive 'yes, I know my cravat appears to be sassing you, but it's not really, and in any case it's not really my fault I'm just wearing him and this is not what I thought I would be doing when I woke up this morning' look*

What wonderfully precise echoes you do get out in these desert canyons...
