I think I'm... just about following it! LOL
The original plot line got as far as the Valentines Party.
Then we decided to do more spin-offs while waiting for the Shed Thread to close.
(We were then going to start the new thread with the "link" piece that I had already written.)
But in the spin-offs, people were wandering outside... falling into holes, bringing polar Bears in! and finding old churches...
Most of the spin-offs have since been completed, or incorporated into the main thread story, but the old church one grew arms, legs, feet and dangley
bits... leading to a potential war? a kidnapping, a riddle/challenge, a rescue, and currently to the fleet of pirate vessels being assembled for our
departure to the next adventure!!
The wee "link" story would have taken us from the Party, directly onto another adventure, by looping back to our very first part of collaborative
writing (about the still-beating heart beneath the graveyard) but It would be difficult to try and incorporate that now? (as we would all still have
to be at the party for it to work!)
If no one objects? I will try my best now to pull it all together? (Emphasis fully on TRY!!!! LOL) but..uggh!!!?? (I think I may have to pull "a
So, From where we currently are in the spin-off... gathering the fleet etc...
Gordi took one last long glance back at the receding coastline, as their small fleet departed for pastures new.
The old shed was safely locked up and secured, and the campervan had been stowed in one of the cargo holds of the vessels – “You never know when
that will come in handy again!” he thought aloud.
Thankfully, Jacy was safely back with the group, and was happily playing with Sophie up on the foredeck of their beautiful ship, seemingly unharmed by
her recent ordeal.
Syx and CC were sadly temporarily absent, taking care of their domestic affairs before setting off, as was Rodi who had taken a short leave of absence
for reasons best left untold! But everyone who was present seemed baffled and confused by the dark spells that they had encountered of late.
Someone or Something had kidnapped Jacy for purposes as yet unknown, and the whole group had been tricked by a powerful spell, into making
preparations for a war that didn’t need to be fought.
Like a cloak of darkness, blinding everyone to the light and the truth.
Thankfully the deed was spotted before any major damage had been done.
But Evil forces had been at work, and it made a great deal of sense to get a safe distance away, whilst the group of rainbow warriors was so affected
by them, and to figure out what had happened and who was responsible.
A map had been found, and it looked like it may lead to... Treasure, or perhaps even a clue to the identity of our tormentors? At any rate it would
give the hearty companions time to regroup, relax and maybe have a bit of fun in the process.
Just then, a strange smell wafted over the deck of the ship... like... The burning of meat!
“Oh My GOD!!!! OGRES!!!!” shouted Gordi! “Everyone to their Stations!!!”
The Alarm Bells were rung and the crews ran to their posts as fast as their legs could carry them...
Ogres nearly always smelled of burning Meat, it was by far their most preferred source of food, but How did they get out HERE???? Surely they were
neither that courageous, resourceful OR foolish?
It was at this moment that Foss came into view, waving from the Foc’sle of his nearby ship.
“Sorry Guys! False Alarm! Erm... dinner might be a little bit overdone tonight!” He shouted “Darn! It was nice Steak as well ”
The relief on the faces of the entire fleet was almost overwhelming as a stifled giggle grew into a glorious, uproarious laughter!
Up ahead, a beautiful tuquoise bay came into view, and many of the tired travellers took the opportunity for a well-earned dip in the still, warm and
Gordi sat back against the main mast, and closed his eyes, just for a second...
Soft music gently filled the air, and the murmurs and giggles of his shed mates made him smile. He heard the clink of glasses, and smelled the
wonderful aromas of a hearty banquet...
"Hang On!" he thought... "Where's the music and banquet smells coming from????"
He leaped to his feet, only to bang his knee on the kitchen table!
"OUCH!! What the hell's going on??"
"You Fell asleep!! You Muppetous Rogue!" chirped True, as Cody and Foss looked on curiously.
"No.... I... We were... off on a..." Gordi's voice trailed off as realisation dawned..."It was just a...dream? But it was SO REAL!" he said
"Perhaps a Premonition of things to come!" smiled Jane as she passed by with a fresh tray of drinks.
"Have another Drink!" they all shouted in unison!
And the party wore on into the wee small hours...
NOW I can do the wee link part.... and then someone can somehow develop the "Still-beating heart" story... to loop round into our "premonition"
spin off? where the still-beating heart belongs to whomever has been tormenting/deceiving us? Which will in turn lead us off on our pirate adventure
