"A few."
Wed Nov 26, 2014 11:21

Rina ran her fingers though her hair. "Possibly something like in the Doctor Who episode Fear Her, where some powerful being drew these flamingos into your room, or at least dumped them here. Or maybe someone, perhaps Doc, is playing a prank on you like you mentioned."

"Of course," she said, shrugging as well, "it's also possible your RA blew up for some reason and its exploding opened a portal just long enough for all these flamingos to fall through. Strange it pulled forty-seven instead of forty-two, but it's possible the number was random. We'd probably want to track down Doc first, does that sound good?"

            Vania leaned out of her chair and pushed a couple of flamingos off the wall they were leaning on. They slid down and hit the floor, making them rattle. "Huh. Well, I guess it's time to recreate... more

                                  Sure enough, she could hear lapping water, though it was very faint. She glanced at Vania. "You don't think that could be the rumored pool, do you?" ((Pshyeah, right.))

                                            Doc's eyes had slowly grown wider and wider as he watched Rina cover the floor in books. Now, he reached out for them. "Preeeeeciooouuus." Vania whapped his hands. "Bad Doc! Not your Precious!" Then, ... more
