what fresh hell
What Fresh Hell for Fabrics!
The girls were interrogating Dark Caper who was confined within a large glass jar with a screwtop lid so it couldnt be opened from inside.
"Okay you insolent piece of sentient cloth TALK!" snapped Goldie!
"They promised ..." whimpered the villianous fabric its folds quivering with fear and angst or possibly just embarassment at being defeated so easily YET AGAIN, "they promised this time we win and get what we want!
Let me out! Let me go! I need a body! Lemme OUT! OUT! OUT!"
The jar rattled as Dark Caper writhed.
Fluvia held up pinking shears and waved them.
Dark Caper whimpered again.
"Who promised?" asked Goldie.
"Mister L sent messages to all the others. All the great ones. Many of us lesser ones. Instead of fighting the heroes we attack one of the nodes. A node with a cintamani! Mr. L made a big wish!"
"Mister L made a big wish for himself not everyone else!
And that Big wish somehow cut Teckelstein off from most realities and dreamings!" snarled Sassy.
"Mister L said now we control the node we can all have a wish. So long as we can keep the heroes away until the next wish and Mister L is very clever!"
(Scribal Note If you're reading the blogpost version go back and reread wimblytime!
For the lazy ...
"I A@#$^&*@( L56789 of Continuum %@ offer up my soul in return for denying access to this node and wishing jewel for three days Earth Greenwich Time twentieth century to any being or power who can stop me re-inserting my cloneson back into my reality on the understanding that a) whatever happens after the three day period my clone son remains real and gets to live to a healthy old age dying a heroic death and b) related and linked condition the first person to make a wish after that three day period can not undo this one whatever happens to me so may it be!")
"I don't see how this big wish effects Teckelstein unless ..." speculated Fluvia, " ... unless ...what does this wishing jewel do ? Anything apart granting wishes?"
"oh that's all it does so the Time Cops keep it at the node so it can't be used except to correct major reality distortions!" answered Sassy.
"oh girls there's a clue there somewhere reality distortions, crossovers between universes and Teckelstein blocked from ours."
There was a rattling sound as Dark Caper's folds shifted like black ink inside the jar as the Evil Textile tried to shift its mass to unbalance the the jar so it would fall over and maybe crack open.
Blocked ... balanced ... flowing ...." muttered Fluvia," shfiting balance ... fluid mass ... oh girls EEEEurekaaa!"
"That's a Greek verb," remarked Goldie.
"no no no darlings don't you see History can be rewritten becasue Time flows! panta ..."
"Time is a river and they're interfered with the water works!" shrieked Dark Caper.
"Breached the dam walls and washed Teckelstein away!" yelped Sassy.
"No all the worlds and universe floating joining together in a mess of flotsam and wreckage making it possible for l's wish to be granted because the usual agents of order cant untangle the mess so there must be someone or several people associated with Teckelstein who can?!" cried Fluvia.
"SO Teckelstein's floating around like a cork out of a bottle?" asked Goldie.
"I'ld like to be floating out of this glass jar. Its Fresh hell for me!" demanded Dark Caper.
"Bother we're the agents of order aren't we?" snapped Sassy, "cos we don't hate Lex's boy so the wish doesnt effect us?
"SOOO now what!" demanded Goldie.
