W-where am I?!

What sort of fate has fallen upon me now? I demand to know, where am I and why have I been brought here?

Has the wars stopped? Has the chaos been quelled? Tis not Erion, I know that much, but I do not know why I am here. This is a kingdom of some kind. More or less, a village judging by the houses I see before me.

Where is my clothing? I never wore this type of dress before. I do hope I am in the company of friends and not foes…

'tis I, Princess. I... I'm afraid there is rather a lot to explain. The Cauldron is the least of our worries, I fear...

Where are you?

Somewhere, a place I do not know but it seems that my brother is here.

My prince, if the Cauldron is the least of our worries then I worry more than I ever have before!

Ingway's house, then? We're in luck, I know where that is. I'll be along in just a-

So this Ingway's home? It seems that he has been blessed...

Why the shock, Cornelius? What is wrong? I know you and my brother are not fond of each other but I must demand that the both of you leave the squabbling aside!

N-No, Princess, I assure you it's nothing like that. Rather it's... ah...

Mayhap it would be better for Ingway himself to tell you. I'll be over momentarily...

[True to his word, Cornelius speeds over to the Valentine household, knocking on the door.]

Oh? I'll be sure to speak with him eventually but come with haste!

I desire more than just your voice, Cornelius. I must be sure you are well.

Just a moment!

Velvet... 'tis truly you... I curse the gods for bringing you to this terrible place, but to see your face again is truly wonderful.

Curse as many gods as you wish, Cornelius, but favor the chance to meet with you again.

I feared for the worst when I did not find you...

[He hugs her tightly, burying his face in her shoulder. This isn't a hallucination; it's real. She's really here.]

Princess Velvet... Know that the town we've been taken to is a terrible place. There are those here who would wish harm upon you, and there are malevolent forces at work beyond our control.

Despite that... I will do all I can to protect you. So long as I draw breath, no harm shall befall you.

Oh, Cornelius...

I know you'll honor your creed to your fullest ability but I too shall do my best to protect you. Our love is not one-sided, my dear. I do not fear the evil that lurks within this land as long as you are by my side.

I'll face whatever challenges that may come with a smile as long as you do the same.

Of course, my love.

...I suppose you must have many questions. This town, Mayfield, is a terrible place populated by smiling "drones", unaware that there is anything wrong and adamant in their ways. Those like us are stolen away from our worlds and made to live here under the eye of a corrupt ruler known only as the Mayor and his watchdog, the self-proclaimed lawman Grady.

You, ah... You may have already met your false "family".

Yet another tyrant who mistreats the power he holds. This surprises me not. Men seem incapable of wielding power unless it is for harmful means and this certainly counts as harmful.

My false "family"?

Yes, I have.

So it goes. We are each of us placed in these bizarre family units and made to live together... I myself have been assigned to the role of the... family dog.

As a dog!? Cornelius, you are no dog! Why would anyone assign you to such a role?

Date: 2009-11-04 01:11 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
A twisted sense of humor, I suppose. 'tis not so bad... The Fairy Queen, Mercedes, was assigned to my household as the "daughter", and I've managed to befriend both her and my false owners. Were it not for the occasional torments this town subjects us to, it would not be so bad a life.

Humor because of the form you wear now, the Pooka's Curse.

The Fairy Queen is here? So even the fairies aren't immune to the deviousness of this realm. I do not understand the point of creating these mock families but I suppose the answer will come in due time.

I hope your 'owners' don't mistreat you, my love, but what do you mean by occasional torments? What happens here?

Do not let this town's bright, cheerful nature deceive you. Roughly once a month, things... happen. Once, the food disappeared, leaving us to starve for a week. More recently, we fell prey to a deadly disease and were poisoned by the very men sent to save us. Those who die here awaken the next morning, completely unharmed...

So we are merely toys being toyed with by the mayor of this awful city? We hold no power and we cannot stop the eventual evils that will befall upon us?

No. If Armageddon can be deterred by mortal hands then this villainous world can be usurped!

From: [identity profile]

No... You're right! I had begun to lose hope, but... You're absolutely right. As long as you and I are together, no force in the world can stop us!

Tis true, my love. As long as we have each other, no evil can thwart us.

We must keep our faith in each other and in ourselves. We can overcome this, Cornelius.

I know we can...
