Daikoku lands: Ooooof
Des throws shoe over her shoulder- hits Daikoku
Daikoku (medium small): Ow!
Lem: Now remember this is supposed to be a medium small ow.
Des: Stop sniveling.
Daikoku: But I’m not!
Des: What are you doing here? Who are you?
Daikoku: Why should I tell you?
Des: Because I can tell you where you are. Heh. You don’t know where you are. Do you. (points)(pause)
Daikoku: (stands up, brushes himself off) Well… it was nice to meet you, you malevolent overgrown bewinged gnome.
Des (in the background): gnome?
Daikoku (tries the homing spell, parchment floats down: Abort. Retry. Failure. Prophecy Failure.)
Owen with Lem and Ob
Lem: Well there goes that idea.
Owen: My homing spells always work.
Daikoku (stunned): But homing spells always work?…?
Des (comes forward): Gnome? I am a pixie
Daikoku: Shush. Not now. I need to figure this out. (waves parchment at Des)
Des: Figure what out? (snatches parchment) Prophecy intervention? No! Not him! Dear God not him!
And then the Neep appeared. (Neep appears clinging to the front of Daikoku’s shirt)
Daikoku: What is that?
And then the Neep said “Neep.”
And then the Neep was gone.
Des (thinks): NO. IT. CANNOT. BE. HIM. He called me a gnome!
Ob: The number four means death in Chinese
Des (heaves a huge sigh): That was the Neep. You were just blessed.
Daikoku: Blessed. By the Neep. Ok. Well that explains absolutely nothing.
Des: Just because you don’t understand the explanation, doesn’t mean it’s not there. No. Wait. We started off badly. I’m Des, and I am a pixie, not a gnome.
Daikoku: OooKay. My name is Daikoku nishanari et Taiban but-
Des: Ack! Too many syllables! TOO many syllables! I can’t cope!
Daikoku: … most people just call me Daikoku.
Des: Oh. Riight. So- where’re you from?
Daikoku: The Lost.
Des: You’re a lost Lost student?
Daikoku: Shut up.
Ob (pointing at Eck): I thought she was the lost Lost student?
Eck: Shut up.
Des: Weeell, We’re not far from Wadden. I could take you there.
Des: Because I pity you, you poor ickle lost lost student. *snicker *
Des (-_-): Because the Neep blessed you. Gotta help you. Can’t argue with the Neep.
(Daikoku still speechless)
Des: Well alright- Wadden is this way. Come on.
Daikoku (mutters): I’m supposed to follow a maniacal malevolent overgrown bewinged … gnome?
(A leaf falls)
Ob: What’s the leaf for?
Lem: It indicates the passage of time. Could be ten minutes, could be twelve minutes. Who knows?
(D y D are walking)
Daikoku (classic scene): Wait- Do you smell something?
Des (holding nose): glurfniger(GLOWING)serklikmad NO buckinglygrrrf
Daikoku: Something smells burnt.
Des: THAT WAS MY NOSE!
O&L: Her nose smells burnt?
(Montage of Padric parts)
Ob: Oooo! Ominous music! Ominous goat!
(They see padric)
Lem: Ominous goat?! (-_-)
(Woosh of fireball)
(same picture slightly scorched)
Padric: Someone’s out to get you! / They really want you dead, / And so they called me up today / So I could scorch your head! (as an aside) We sing; we dance: we kill heros! It’s all part of the service here at Good Riddance Inc.
(D y D in stunned silence, then collapse in giggles to outright hysterics)
Padric: Why doesn’t anyone take my message seriously? (grumbles) Stupid song. Mortimer shall die! Mercy stroke blah blah rant rant.
Yay for NaNoMangO!
