Even better ... we won't cease to exist! We would simply fall into another dreamt up existence of another Scroll on another Palace ship. XD

We finally find out what shocks Cutter in issue 12...

Timmain fills him in on a little secret: there is a reason she shape-changes between her Firstcomer form and a Wolf (and not a wolfrider, wolf elf hybrid, or conehead). She prefers those wolf-kin who embraced the world of two moons entirely, completely, and became more wolflike, whereas Cutter and his Wolfrider kin have become less and less wolflike, seperating themselves from the world. She basically disowns the tribe. As there arent much left of the wolf-kin 'Hunt', it all amounts to a complete failure on her part of the 20000 year experiment she was sent to perform.

Further, Winnie is finally subjected to her therapy. Her spirit is caused to become bound within the body of Cutter's wolf-friend, who is given longer life as well to prolong her 'session'. So, both Cutter and Winnie ha e to deal with each other for a couple of centuries to learn from their mistakes: Winnie's cruelty to animals, and Cutter's failure to become like one (which wouod have meant he would have died long before the Palace came back, berhaps back in thr Holt with the fire at that, as animals wouldnt crawl through the Troll Caves to escape the flames).

In the end, all sympathizers with the Wolfriders, as well as all opposition to them, were dismissed as inferior, and Timmain flies off on another mission,leaving them all behind, while the human army creep up behind them to cut them down en-mass.

Didn't know where else to put this, but this is a lullabye for a Go-Back child:

Rock-a-bye, baby, in your thong litter.
My name is Rask - I'm your babysitter.
Mama went hunting, Sis did the same.
Pop's somewhere 'round, we don't know his name.

Rock-a-bye, baby, in your wee bed,
Snuggle your fishhook and your spearhead.
If you survive ten crustings and three,
You'll be a bored teenager like me.

When you are grown, we'll go off to war,
And bring back some trophies to hang by the door.
Then we will mate, and set up our den,
And start the whole baby cycle again.

Rock-a-bye, baby, sweet little fawn,
Close your big eyes and sleep until dawn.

Fitting right in with the zany storytelling methods,we end up with a flash forward for a Christmas special. In it, the Rebels visit a comet to frolic in the snow. Scorch has the bright idea to make snow cones, and Chandra declines.

After the rest of the crew are revived from ingesting the various volatile ices, she asks "so how were they?"

They replied that it had strong off-tastes.

She resopnded by pointing out that they should expect some freezer burn after being frozen for millions of years.

Another revelation we find in the coming issues is that the statement "on a world that is not -- could never be -- earth" means that he EQ series is more closely placed in the "long long ago" and "far far away"... as a result, the assumption that these Elves are related to Vulcans is completely off base....

What may be closer to the truth is the likelihood that Yoda is Two-Edge's son...

This will be revealed in Episode 0, which will be produced after they get around to writing the script for episode 9.

Timmain is a manipulative bitch who caused the original crash. Maybe even a criminal who was banished with others in the palace ala Superman.

This is the secret that Winnowill and Egg both discovered contemplating the great egg in Blue Mountain. To protect herself, Timmain has mind-warped both of them so they don't remember it anymore. She wanted to mind-warp Cutter, but just like Winnowill she found his "strength born of the outside" too strong to overcome, so she came up with this crazy story of them being the same person.

The fungus elves are going to let Cutter in on the secret and tell him how to find the proof of Timmain's duplicity.

Once reminded of the truth, Winnowill, Rayek and Egg become instrumental in trapping Timmain again in the palace. Cutter and Strongbow volunteer to become her jailers and take her in a pod back to the homeworld.

Is the journey to homeworld one of those instants ones or is it actually to take time? They might end up dying before they reach it.

It takes time. Time enough for Jink to be born on the journey, and for them to come back looking for her when it is done.

Not that I care too much about future quest and Jink, but might as well try to tie it all together.

Timmain is not hiding anything with her hair. She's not a mammal, and doesn't have anything to be modest about, much less is she worried about it.

But there are two patches of velcro superglued to her chest, and her hair gets tangled up in them. After pulling her hair out, literally, dozens of times, she just rolled with it and left it there....


Ahhh.... now I feel like I'm back.... I needed that!

If you notice, Earth is the truely magical place, the only place in the known universe where gemstones have to be cut between findng them underground and usng them for things. Everywhere else they are already in some faceted form, meanng that Terrans are at an extreme advantage for making jems into creative shapes. Everyone else has to either shape them through magic or hope to find one the right shape!

Greymung's throne is as deceptive as he is... Its an amazing piece of technology that, under further analysis, sems a bit out of place in the world of two moons: its heated, has a variety of attendant call functions, has been engineered to be comfortable no matter how long its been sat in, and even alows thr King to stay in place as long as he dems necessary, as long as he does not need to get himself food. He's even found a way to sit in it without worrying about bedsores...

But this high technology comes at a price, at least for those who would have to serve under him. What I mean is, literally, the two poor souls that live under his seat and maintain the fire that heats the seat at just the riht temperature, open the service panel (without a draft, very tricky) and deal with the King's royal waste and medical needs down below. The commands for whatever the king desires are relayed via a series of ornaments on thr base of the seat that ring like bells of different pitches when tapped by his scepter.

As you may figure, this isnt the grand job that direct royal service might seem to be. The poor souls doomed to serve i the king's personal dung pit must keep things perfect for their king, being ever vigilant of keeping the heat perfect and the king's waste handled without much warning. They must be creative from time to time, as he desires no adverse smells ever, and the training program has left the pair of minions without a leg to stand on. Its really among the "dirtiest jobs" ever concieved.

Oh, and how did Greymung get his throne designed to be so form fitting with the tools at hand? Sheer willpower. He never leaves his throne. He sleeps in it, eats in it, and does everything else in it, since his "underlings" take care of everything that would require him to leave, so the stone itself has yielded to his mighty... Ahem... presence and worn to his form perfectly.


Guttlekraw, on the other hand, just comands his throne to be comfortable, and he has convinced himself that it obeys as well as anything else in his kingdom. His rump considers complaining from time to time, but remembers what happened to that one slave that complained about sitting on the floor to polish it. The slave no longer has to worry about sitting at least...

Extremely trollish, in that there was no honor in the positin here, and while privy to the king's words as youd expect a privy to be, secrecy was enforced in that there was only one way in to that particular doom pit, and in or out you had to get passed the king, as it required the throne to be moved. There was rumor to be a trap door in the floor in front of the king but this is not likely as the lower chamber would have filled beyond capacity in no time if there was too easy a way to dump in those that aggravated the king so easily.

No, if the king opened the passage down there, someone was losing something: a body part, a life, in some cases both. After the slave revolt of three eights and two seasons after Greymung's ascension to power, you weren't bestowed with the job unless you were also hamstrung so that you could never stand again. Those kings were so very horrible.

On the up side you are very well... Not only did you get the king's leftovers (dumped through a slot next to the throne), but there was also a feeding slot where others could slip in food, and it was never tampered with or rotten or whatever as you might think, since if those attending the king die, the king would be quickly looking to replace them, so the others make sure they never need for anything that will keep them alive.

Doesnt qualify as morbid, but... Can you see the irony in an anemic blacksmith?

Its not well known, but trolls tend to have a large number of mineral deficiencies, especially confusong since they live underground mining said minerals. But in this case it isnt the quantity, but rather metabolism. Many, like vitamin D, require sunlight to activate, fresh air to oxidize, and all in all, trolls are a magically adapted species that were not exactly intended for underground living. In this case, though, one preference, the seeking of shiny things ans the industry that supports it, unintentionally fixes the problems caused by the other preference of living underground.

The Scroll of Colors gets even crankier, and meddles with our space and time...

In the process, WaRP gets into a deal with PBS in around 1978, when then locks them into a usual PBS no compete "its all ours now" policy. This ties the OQ into rewrite for three decades where it undergoes... Metamorphosis of the third kind. It ranges back and forth between a "almost too adult for adult" BBC script to "Barny would have a hard time watching this" kids show.

The end result can only be described as a replacement of Sesame Street, wherein the Wolfriders teach acceptance of others different than themselves and the embracing of all things vegitable, as they are now vegans. This would have resulted in peace with the Gotara Tribe, since a non-hunting band of elves would not overlap with the hunting range of the humans, except Oakleaf (now known as Vegan) decided on a crusade quest to teach the world the benefits of being vegetarian. By Cutter's time (now known as Scyth), the forest has been clear-cut and the wolves have been committed to beasts of burden, tilling, seeding, fertilizing and harvesting grain and veggies for the elves. As such the normal forest animals have all moved away, Bearclaw never traded meat for troll steel, the humans have no reason to set the non-existant forest on fire, and the wolfriders never set out to find others of their own kind. Instead they spend episode after episode dedicating the day to a limiter quantity of letters, numbers only up to 8, zero historical references (still have the now of wolfthought), and the wonders of eating veggies.

This also means that Suntop is never born, Scythe never meets Timmain and learns his version of "We're not so different, you and I), and while the show does show some flashes over to Happiness Starts and other tribes, they never meet each other, never have Rayak leave Happiness Begins, nor is Windkin, Venka and others born, the Palace is never found, Jink is never born, and I never write Santa Quest. This is ok, because Fathertreeholt isnt here to post it to anyway, and the Scroll of Colors never sees this post to get the idea in the first place, and implodes into a quantum singularity.

Hmm... the Palace as a Phantom Zone portal... Would explain all the phantoms...

Perhaps it was also jealousy of a sort, a sort of "when i grow up I want to be just like you"? Of course, maybe Timmain 'immaculate conception-ed' Cutter but didn't know who he was, just kind of shot a piece of her spirit off to the aether and it became Cutter (and possibly others, I mean, why not?) and only found out when she tried to mind-wipe him?

Meh, they seem a little "who cares". More likely they'd try to stir up trouble and try to cause some infighting, some murder and mayhem, as death and destruction just makes more food for them. Question, if a fungus-elf feeds on a dead wolfrider decomposing at their feet, is it cannibalism?

I know we saw the lookalikes of the likes of them, but would not Rayak be better at guarding the criminally insane? Be absolutely hilarious if it was him dressed up as Cutter, having cracked by being surrounded by too much crazy.

In an alternate universe...

Skywise, fearing that Rayak's theft of thr Palace resulted in him losing his soul brother to the mists of time, asks Leetah for help. Instead of asking for his Wolf half to be removed, though, he asked his Elfin half be temoved, so he could lose himself completely in the 'Now of Wolf Thought.

Days later, when he runs into Cutter, he's already forgotten completely about him and, feeling every bit the young wolf he is, challenges him for dominance. He got a shade too rough, though and nipped Cutter's throat. Leetah didnt make it in time, and, long story short, he became the Wolfrider's 11th chief.

The story doesnt end there, though. He found a kinship in the now of wolfthough with Strongbow, and eventually became his wolf-friend. Much too late, he realized that by allowing Strongbow to ride him, though, he had allow himself to be mounted, and therefore deferred his leadership to Strongbiw, who led the pack well away from the High-Ones' forsaken Palace and into pure bliss of living free and wild in the forests under the Two Moons, and all was right and good...

Well, except for Rayak and Leetah. Rayak became a couch potato, too busy 'watchin' the Scroll' to even bother fixing himself dinner, while Leetah, now a single mom with two kids and no tribe to help take care of them and with a deadbeat on the couch, attempts to fend off Winnie's theft of the palace, Two-Edge's terror saws, and thr Jundland Navy by herself... Fortunately she had Kahvi to help her when she wasnt chasing donuts...

Nothing good for either one of us, that would be for sure. A day... Probably could hold up a day, and parts of it would be interesting, but my efforts would probably range from trying to reason with her to work through whats going or or to just try to understand her, to actively poking at her to try and throw some of what she delt out back at her. I dunno, I cant say exactly how ethics play into a fictional alien non-corporial entity imprisoned within the mind of another sentient being.... I think they have places for people dealing with such things....

As it is, Im stuck in a story mentioned elsewhere in a similar situation. I havent had the time to go back and work it out yet, much less the monthly GB story (I think I started it ... O.o ).


If I feel inspired, Ill come back and duke it out with winnie on this thread, sounds like fun! Heh heh heh haha bWHAHAHAHA!!!
