    Blimey, it's a jungle in here. Purdy.

    Ooh, violence...

    *An emu decked out in fairy wings and adult-nappy prances into the room, blowing a bird-shaped whistle*

    I once met a girl from Sweden,
    Who gave me the love I was needin'.

    *With a pirouette, he dances into the middle of the room and begins throwing old, browned rose petals into the air. In one corner of the room, foliage begins to shake and slowly take the shape of a sofa*

    We met on the train,
    And kissed in the rain.

    *In a graceful movement, the emu leaps towards the now entirely visible sofa, spins on his feet and backflips onto its cushions. As he slowly disappears from sight, he lets out a small sigh*

    Then I found out she was a man...

    *Silently, the sofa slinks back into the foliage and fades out of view*

    Hope you didn't let that minor detail get in the way.

    "Nobody's perfect".

    Anyway, was thinking about you earlier, young Lennis. No Valentine's Day animation?

    No animation again this year, I'm afraid. I brought my graphics tablet back up to Uni, but I'm yet to order the cables I need to connect it all up.

    Wanders in, looking a bit glum, "Hi Nixie. It's done now, but I hope it never happens again. Burning a rowan tree is something no Scot does lightly, tea please, Septimus."

    For the last time, NO, Kirby!


    "Paiyo!!!"

    Just because Dreamland is in trouble does NOT mean I'm going to go there and fight King Dedede for you. Septimus, I need some Pepsi please.

    A voice calls from the rafters;

    "Down in a minute, Karn." The sound of heavy sanding is replaced by hammering, "If you see Freda, tell her I'd appreciate a little help with the harness."

    Ducks many-thonged Whip-of-Fire.

    "No Freda ! I don't care if the balrog followed you home, his people will miss him if we keep him."

    Looks again but only gets the scent of singed hair. The wings / no wings debate will continue.

    I have to agree with Ace here, Freda. I, for one, do not get along very well with balrogs and you know what can happen when I unleash my powers.


    Or pull pranks. Remember the teflon surfaces, Freda?

    "Freda likes a hug," extracts himself from the rafters.

    "The trouble with this place is that imagined things become real, whether you want them to or not. Tea?"

    Heads for Septimus.
