Pippa's Ghost
[Sunday] Hild in Printworthy's body
Mon Aug 31, 2015 03:33

The brief moment of dizziness passed before Hild even knew it began.

She looked up and found that she was in an unfamiliar RC. And she seemed to be bent over on all fours, not wearing any trousers or underpants by the feel of things. What happened? she thought. Wait, has some ben-adar been playing tricks with a neuralyzer?

Out of the corner of her eye (her peripheral vision had improved, although she hadn't noticed this) she could see a boy. Was he the one who brought her here? And what did he want with her? Please don't let it be what I think it was. Well, she'd give him a piece of her mind!

She stood up, or at least tried to. She reared up, but then fell back down, all four legs splaying outwards, the quill dropping from her hoof, and knocking a bottle of ink over her blue fur.


Things were even worse than she'd thought. What had that boy done to her?


((OOC: Ben-adar is the Elvish phrase for fatherless, and in Hild's origin fic the Dunlendings use it as a swear word roughly equivalent to our "b*st*rd".))

((I hope the bit about the peripheral vision is right. Real-world horses have a much wider field of vision than humans, so I'm assuming Ponies do too.))

      Sean's dizziness didn't stop. If anything, it kept getting worse. Everything kept swimming before his eyes, making it hard to focus. And he seemed to be seeing double - or maybe even more than... more

          and saw the two agents leaning over him. He also saw those snakes lying on the floor beside him, but at least they weren't moving. The black-haired man was asking if Sean was all right. Still too... more

              and slowly shook one head. And, this time it was the right one, the one with its eyes open. Feeling more confident, he had another try at speaking. "Not Kyarisss... Ssssean."
              • "Okay, Sean. You're all right."SeaTurtle, Tue Sep 1 14:27
                "Well, er, unless we've been talking to the head named 'Kyaris' all this time, heh..." Penny smiled. "No? Okay, sorry: bad joke. So, Sean: can you remember anything at all before you got here? And,... more

                          At least I'm not the only one affected. That's some relief anyway. He wondered if they could try to phone his mobile to get in touch with the person now in his body - possibly this Kyaris. The he... more

                            Denny massaged his forehead. "Great. Just great." It took skill to be that stupidly destructive. "You know we had to call in help for that one, you guys were that flooded?" He shook his head, and... more

                                Penny moved to the hydra's side. "Gaspard, Robbs, come over here. We're all gonna roll Sean over and hope that he can get his legs under control before he ploughs through a couple more cubicles." She ... more

                                  Depending on how bad the damage was, it would probably end up being something BM would have to take care of later, but right now it didn't matter. He went over, shoving hair out of his face, and fell ... more

                                    After some pushing and rolling, they managed to get Sean into a position where he could stand up. He still felt a little wobbly, but instinct took over and a couple of his heads grabbed the edge of... more

                                      "Though I imagine that the department would be flooded by cases like yours-- not to mention all of the Nurses suddenly body-swapped out of Medical. We can give it a shot." She retrieved her RA from... more

                                        "If this is spread through all of HQ there's no telling what's going on. Or being destroyed," he said, automatically resigning himself to the aftermath.
                                        • Sean took a long, deep breathPippa's Ghost, Sat Sep 5 11:24
                                 help steady himself before taking his first steps through the portal. When he breathed out, sparks and smoke came from his mouth. Luckily they didn't hit anyone. He glanced down at the heads... more

                                            Agents stumbled around, trying to find out who was who and searching for the nearest shiny object to catch a glimpse of their own reflection. "Well," said Penny as she followed Sean through the... more

                                              He was still trying to keep the eyes open on only one of his heads at time. (Any more than that, and he quickly found himself getting giddy again.) Stretching that head's neck up as high as it would... more

        Something had to be wrong. The unicorn would have yelled so had she spilled his ink, or touched his feathers. Especially when they fused to him. Why was he so attached, but wanted to be separate? And ... more
        • "Hi there, little one."Pippa's Ghost, Wed Sep 2 09:52
          Hild smiled at the small dragon. "Are you one of those baby fire-lizards I've heard so much about?"
          • The draconequis started to chuckle.World-Jumper, Wed Sep 2 11:13
            Oh, the new pony was going to be fun. However, she had to correct pony knowledge. Silly ponies, they think so much, but as usual, know so little. She zipped over to the shelf of disks. Snapping her... more
            • Hild grew angry...Pippa's Ghost, Wed Sep 2 12:07
              on hearing the little dragon thing's words. "Chaos and Disharmony? So are you you the one who did this to me?" Distracted by her anger, she managed to stand up on all fours without even realising it.
              • Rartiy grinned wickedly.World-Jumper, Wed Sep 2 12:30
                New pony was going to be fun! She hardly had to play to get anger. Yet, still, she was confused. She had not done anything to new pony. She gave the disk another spin, and let the words flow through... more
                • "Well, what did you expect me to think?"Pippa's Ghost, Thu Sep 3 04:06
                  Hild tried to take a threatening step towards the self-proclaimed spirit of Chaos, but stumbled and ended up lying on the floor again. Not quite the air of calm menace she was after.
