"Ah, it's fine," Nick said.

He rubbed the back of his neck self-consciously. "Our chordophone, Chi-won, can be like that too, I guess. Uh, I'm Nick." He held out a hand to the newcomer, hoping Ami wouldn't bring up Dirk again. It was hard enough to answer questions like that when his uncle asked, let alone a stranger.


  • Ami tilted her head curiously. "You don't sound like you know him too well, Nick. Aren't you two friends? You came in with him and those other guys, so I assumed you were." "BOO!" Violet shouted,... more
    • "Ah, it's fine," Nick said. — Alleb, Sat Oct 31 23:17
      • "I'm Chris. Nice to meet you."eatpraylove, Sun Nov 1 19:26
        He accepted Nick's handshake. "What's a chordophone? Does that have to do with instruments?" "So what do you think of the party? I'm surprised I can hear anybody talk with how many agents showed up," ... more
        • Nick squirmed. Alleb, Sun Nov 1 19:42
          Now he had no idea what to do: answer the questions, comment on the costume party, or comment on the mystery? " I knew I shouldn't have come, " he thought miserably. " Maybe if I back away slowly...... more
          • "Oops...Sorry we're overwhelming you, sir. I get nervous at parties, too." "You know what, I'm going to go enter the costume contest after all," said Chris. "I bet nobody else up there has a... more
            • Nick gaped in surprise. Alleb, Sun Nov 1 22:36
              "Woah!" he said, bending down to look more closely at the replica. "Awesome! I can't do anything like that, at least, not without the band. Neat! Can you go inside?" ((-Alleb))
              • "I should be able to."eatpraylove, Mon Nov 2 15:01
                Ami trotted around and reached up to the door handle. It felt solid enough, but tingled underneath her hoof. "Ready...and..." She pulled the handle outwards. Nothing happened. "Oh. Guess I forgot to... more
                • "Yeah." Alleb, Mon Nov 2 16:48
                  "It's me, Hasina, Chi-won, Dirk, and Skye. The school matched us up about a month back; it happens to everyone where I'm from. When we play a song together, like The Song of Time, it lets us do... more
                  • Ami's eyes lit up. "That sounds like my talent!"eatpraylove, Mon Nov 2 20:38
                    "I never thought of joining a band back home, though. I was too nervous or busy to audition. What instrument do you play? I might be able to help you get better if you sing or play know,... more
                    • Nick smiled tightly. Alleb, Mon Nov 2 20:44
                      "Nick," he said. "Nick Jacobs." He turned back to Ami, albeit very unwillingly. "I play... well, this ." He reached into his pocket and drew out his ocarina. It seemed ridiculously tiny, even more so ... more
                      • "Well, I like it," said Ami.eatpraylove, Mon Nov 2 22:58
                        "But that's probably my not-so-inner Zelda fangirl talking." Violet bit off a chunk of her pumpkin bread. "Understatement of the year." "Yeah, probably," the pony laughed. "So does everyone where you ... more
                        • "Wait, you know what an ocarina is?" Alleb, Tue Nov 3 19:51
                          Nick blinked rapidly. No one knew what an ocarina was. No one. He'd been carrying this thing for two years, and not once had anyone recognized it. "That's... impossible." ((I'm having fun too! :D... more
                          • "What? But how?" Ami couldn't believe it.eatpraylove, Wed Nov 4 18:14
                            "You mentioned the Song of Time when you talked about your powers, and your friend showed up dressed as Link, so Ocarina of Time exists in your home verse, right? ...Right?" Ami's horn lit up again,... more
                            • "Ocarina of Time?"Alleb, Wed Nov 4 18:31
                              Nick shook his head. "No, not back home. We've got The Legend of Zelda, yeah, but not that. And the Song of Time was just discovered like any other song." ((Another thing to iron out in my book--... more
                              • Ami hmm'd thoughtfully.eatpraylove, Sat Nov 7 11:44
                                "Oh, I see. To be honest, I only found out that the Zelda series even existed after coming here. Chris showed me the original on the Virtual Console and things sort of spiraled from there." Violet... more
                                • "Well, lemme see if I can explain..."Alleb, Wed Nov 11 17:12
                                  Nick thought for a moment, then began. "So, you guys have scientists, right? Well, our composers work like that. See, if we just started combining notes and make songs on our own, it'd be like... more
