“When I am out there, in time, I am inverted, changed into a desperate version of myself. I become a thief, a vagrant, an animal who runs and hides. I startle old women and amaze children. I am a trick, an illusion of the highest order, so incredible that I am actually true.”
~ Audrey Niffenegger, The Time Traveler’s Wife
The universe is a strange and surprising place. Just when you think you know something, someone comes along and proves you wrong. Just when you get use to something, it is taken away from you. We traveled to the Fisher King’s Castle and the whole way Pete, The Professor, and John argued non-stop about whether we were inside or outside of the Nothing. I stayed quiet as I was reciting a spell of flame ward in my head. I really wish magic worked in this place. I honestly have no idea if I am doing it right or wrong. It is a complicated incantation and I think perhaps it may be out of my reach.
I snapped out of my daydreaming when John shouted, “Missiles!” and we all jumped off of our bikes once again. Once again Corey fell screaming to his certain doom but out of nowhere three gargoyles snatched him out of the air and all we could do was watch as he was carried off into the clouds. We landed and worked out a plan of attack.
Entering the castle proved easier than expected. There was no resistance. On the docks we found a space ship and though John and Myself wanted to check out the ship, Pete and the Professor headed for the castle door and we had no choice but to follow. Inside everyone was dead except for two mellors. Mirror images of each other, one was white, the other black. One named Virus the other named Paradox. They guided us through a series of tests and in the end we passed them all. Then we jumped through a vortex and found ourselves in Koth. Yes I said Koth. How the hell did we travel back in time with all of our gear? I am very confused and curious as to how we will get back. Now we are out for adventure and I feel the primal urges returning. I foresee many great battles and deeds that will be worthy of telling.
