Deb: [act]Sails down the street, her purdy green and blue fluffy sail gathering the wind nicely.[/act]
Bibli: [act]Is struck dumb (and motionless)[/act]
Deb: [act]Grabs the cup and sails away.[/act]
Bibli: [act]realises what has happened, pulls out a matching green and blue towel and flicks it out of Deb's hand.[/act]
Deb: [act]is caught by wind in sail and keeps going[/act]
Bibli:[act]races over, picks up Cup. Ducks into a side street, using the towel as camoflage against the blue and green striped walls.[/act]
Aoife: [act]brandishes blue & green fluffy thing as a Zorro-like whip, cutting Bibliophile's shape out of the wall [/act] A-ha!
Biblio: [act]slightly jumpy due to whip brandishing action taken place so close to body[/act]
Aoife: [act]grabs cup & uses fluffy blue & green "whip" as a lasso to grab onto rafters and escape[/act]
[act]Schis throws rolls out blue green mat and beckons Aoife towards him[/act]
Schis: Oh Aoife, come over here and check out the view!
[act]Aoife darts across the mat to see what Schis can see[/act]
Schis: [act]points[/act] Aha! You have fallen into my trap.
[act]Aoife lies in a whole, stealthily dug by Schis' minions prior to rolling out of the mat. [/act]
Aoife: Help, oh no, the moonfair cup has fallen out of my pocket and is trapped in the mat!
[act]Schis hoists the mat up and collects the cup, disguises himself, and flees the scene, leaving Aoife in the hole[/act]
Tonks: [act]finishes the final stitch of a row of her blue and green striped scarf[/act] [act]switches the scarfed needle to her throwing hand[/act]
Schis: [act]stops conveniently in front of a target logo[/act]
Tonks: [act]throws the needle at schis[/act]
Needle: [act]hits the target logo[/act]
Scarf: [act]wraps itself around Schis[/act]
Tonks: [act]takes the cup and goes back to her rocking chair[/act]
[act]Tonks sees people seaching for the moonfair cup, gets up and slips away. She comes to a narrow corridoor obscured by a fluffy green and blue striped hanging. Pushing past it, he finds another hanging, and another. The corriddor is filled with hanging towel, some dry, some not-so-dry. Tonks continues to push his way past and through the hangings, eventually emerging ino a large room[/act]
Tonks: Phew, what was with all those towels? :-/ 8-| Wait, the moonfair cup!
Moonfair Cup: [act]is gone![/act]
Bibli: [act]sneeks away from her towel trap clutching the perloined Cup[/act]
Arwen: [act]stops jogging[/act] Ah, perfect! [act]grabs a dry towel and wipes her face[/act] Nothing like a clean, dry towel after a run. [act]walks off to a nearby bench and rests[/act]
Bibli: [act]sneaks past clutching the cup[/act]
Arwen: o_O [act]to self:[/act] I don't think she's seen me. (0-) I can use that to my advantage! [act]quietly gets up and runs around the bench until she's jogging beside Bibli, towel still in hand[/act] Hi there! Would you be so kind as to hold this for me for a moment, [act]panting[/act] I'm a bit out of breath.
Bibli: Ah, sure [act]takes the wet towel with distaste and gingerly hangs it over the Moonfair Cup[/act]
Arwen: [act]pauses as if recovering[/act] Thanks, you're a life saver. [act]takes back her towel the Cup and sets off at a jog triumphantly[/act] I knew this would be a good thing.
Bibli: [act]is relieved to be free of the wet towel and sneaks along again out of habit[/act]
Arwen: *is stopped in her tracks, face-to-face with a giant, mechanical polar bear*
Smuffy: *is sitting atop the giant mechanical polar bear, wearing a fluffy extra-warm coat covered in snow that doesn't seem to melt*
Arwen: What the-?
Smuffy: Made some friends after I got shipped to Antarctica, I did. This here's Kikiriki. Say hello, Ki. :)
Arwen: Um, Smuffy, you do know polar bears live in the Arctic, ri-
GMPB: *opens mechanical jaws to swallow Arwen whole*
Arwen: 8-| *tosses cup in there and runs away*
Smuffy: Ah, nothing like a good old-fashioned giant-mechanical-polar-bear-from-Antarctica-rather-than-the-Arctic mugging. *collects cup and uses it to drink some hot chocca*
Fian: Oh look a giant mechanical beast. I wonder how it works. [act]plays around with a few knobs and buttons.[/act]
GMPB: Burps up the moonfair cup.
Deb: runs past and grabs cup.
Deb: [act]Dives into the water and swims away with the cup.[/act]
Arwen: [act]swims into Deb[/act] Sorry! Are you alright?
Deb: [act]coughing after swallowing some water[/act] Can almost breathe properly again. [act]the Cup is weighing her down as she struggles to hold it near the surface[/act]
Arwen: Would you like me to hold that for a moment? Then you can catch your breath.
Deb: Thanks [act]passes the Cup over[/act]
Arwen: Right, you seem okay now, so I'll just be off.
Arwen: I can't- I'm in a triathalon and don't particularly wish to come last. [act]swims off with the Cup[/act]
BB: [act]knocks into Arwen as she exits the water[/act]
Arwen: [act]drops the cup[/act]
BB: [act]hands over what appears to be the cup[/act] Here you go ;D
Arwen: Thanks! [act]jogs off to continue the triathalon[/act]
BB: [act]laughs, pocketing the real cup as Arwen leaves with the green and blue towel, folded origami-style into the shape of the cup, and painted gold[/act]
Bibli: [act] is hiding in bushes[/act]
BB: [act]turns and trips over the rolled towel Bibli has cunnignly placed in front of her[/act]
Moonfair Cup: [act] goes flying and lands in bushes[/act]
Bibli: [act]creeps away with Cup[/act]
BB: [act] is left searching for Cup in bushes[/act]
Hannai: [act]Pushes Rushton into a convenient swimming pool[/act]
All: [act]Point and laugh[/act]
Hannai:[act] Steals cup while Bibli is laughing[/act]
Bibli:[act]climbs out of pool and uses her blue/green/white striped towel to dry herself off ( :O ). walks calmly over to her bag and pulls out the real Moonfair Cup then replaces.[/act]
Hannai: [act]laughs as she runs away with decoy Cup[/act]
Deb: [act]walks up in her blue and green fluffy lifeguards uniform and informs Bibli that metal objects are banned on the pool deck. Takes cup and walks into the staff room.[/act]
EI: [act]Managed to manouvre herself onto the deck of the ship, and ended up hiding in the staffroom cupboard[/act]
Deb: [act]Walks into the staffroom with a big grin on her face and holding the cup[/act]
EI: [act]Waits until Deb falls asleep, sneaks out of the cupboard and grabs the cup, replacing it with a rubber duck from the pool deck, before hijacking a tiny boat and rowing towards some deserted-looking islands[/act]
Smuffy: Gah! Can't you go any faster! *whacks her giant mechanical polar bear on the head*
GMPB: *is swimming towards the deserted-looking islands afters EI*
Water: *starts to leak into the interior of the GMPB/Kikiriki*
GMPB: *starts to spark and slowly sink below the surface of the water*
Smuffy: 8-| :| *bails and tries to swim to shore*
EI: *finds a Smuff-Smuff washed up on the shore* Aw, you poor thing!
Smuffy: *puts on an innocent face* Me was out fishing with Pa, when the wave came... 8-| Where's Pa!? Where is he?! D= *start crying*
EI: Awww, here, have this. It's very valuable, but I know it can't compensate for your Pa. I just hope it does some good.
Smuffy: :D Thanks! *legs it*
Smuffy: [act]realises that she is now stuck on a small, deserted island with an angry EI after her[/act]
Bibli: [act]appears in a small boat with blue striped sail [/act] You look like you need a lift, hop in and I'll take you back to the mainland. :) |:|
Smuffy: [act]gets in and they sail off[/act]
[act]just in sight of land Bibli puts down the anchor[/act]
Smuffy: Why have we stopped? The land is over there. ???
Bibli: Yes, but there is still the small matter of payment. You didn't really think I'd do this for free did you?
Smuffy: ).( [act]searches pockets[/act] I don't have any money on me.
Bibli: That's all right. I'll just take that pretty Cup instead (Smuffy: ":( ) ... or i could simply leave you on that small deserted island over there, there should be a few hours left before the tide covers it.
Smuffy: :-? [act]hands over Moonfair Cup[/act] :"(
Bibli: [act]drops Smuffy off at the harbour then sails off admiring the shiny Cup[/act] :-"
Deb: [act]Soars through the air on the back of a shiny blue/green dragon. Overtakes Bibli in her little boat.[/act]
Bibli: Ooo dragon!
Dragon: [act]Grabs the cup and flies away.[/act]
Deb: [act]Pats dragon[/act]. Good boy!
Arwen: [act]is riding up a tall mountain[/act]
Dragon: [act]is blinded by the bright sun reflecting off the cup[/act]
Deb: [act]tries to tell the dragon to avoid the mountsain[/act]
Dragon: [act]cannot see it to avoid it [/act]
Arwen: [act]sees their dilemma and rides into the nearby towel factory, taking all the blue and green towels to make for a soft landing[/act]
Deb and Dragon: [act]crash into the mountain... but bounce off the towels[/act]
Cup: [act]has bounced towards Arwen[/act]
Arwen: [act]catching the Cup rides off leaving the dazed Deb and Dragon behind[/act]
Fate: [act]is walking by holding a bundle of green and blue striped cloth[/act]
Arwen: [act]stops[/act] Are you alright, there?
Fate: Oh, it's just my pet dog here... CATCH!
Arwen: [act]scrambles to catch 'dog', dropping Cup[/act]
Fate: [act]grabs cup and runs away into the middle distance[/act] Muhahaha!
Fate: [act]Runs straight into EI's makeshift stone house[/act]
EI: Oh, I'm terribly sorry, the council did say that this was a horrible place to put a house.
Fate: [act]Head is spinning[/act]
EI: Would you like to come in and rest for a while?
Fate: Hmmm... [act]Thinks that Arwen can't find her and the cup if they're hiding in this little house[/act] That would be great.
EI: [act]Waits for Fate to get comfortable and sleepy, and as soon as the other person is out, grabs the cup and goes through the trapdoor under the blue/green/white rug and into the tunnel system below.[/act]
Fate: [act]wakes up suddenly as a tremor rocks the house[/act] Oh... it seems that trouble is afoot! [act]dons her blue and green cape, zooms through tunnels[/act] Dunna, nunna-nunnah!
EI: [act]has gotten stuck underground in a sudden cave-in[/act] Help!
Fate: Have no fear, Super... er... I'm here! [act]pulls EI out of rubble... and steals the Moonfair Cup[/act]
Fate: [act]flies away with cape flapping in the wind[/act] ;D
Tonks: [act]tears two pieces of her blueberry, greenapple and whitechocolate roll up[/act] [act]dips them in a mixture of yogurt and super glue[/act]
Fate: [act]zooms past pretending to me a Mazda[/act] Zoom Zoom! :D
Tonks: [act]smacks the two roll up/yogurt/super glue pieces over Fate's eyes[/act]
Fate: [act]is blind[/act] [act]Zoom-Zoom's into a tree[/act] x_X
Tonks: [act]takes the cup and slithers up a tree vampire style[/act] :-"
Tonks: [act]shields eyes from sun and peers around from her perch on the treetop[/act]
Tree: [act]starts shaking, and folds in on itself[/act]
Fate: [act]strolls over[/act] Why, I do believe we’ve flipped into the land of Winnie The Pooh’s Hundred Acre Wood!
Tonks: [act]somersaults back a few pages, losing the Cup in Chapter 2[/act]
Fate: [act]uses her blue, green and white fluffy GIANT bookmark to mark the Cup’s place… then swipes it[/act] Bingo! [act]jumps out of book and tosses it into a chest, waving Cup in victory[/act]
