”Don’t you think this story in some ways reminds you of Strindberg,” Eldo mused.
“You mean the biting social commentary?” Blue ventured.
“I mean it never seems to end and we have now idea where we are or what is happening,” Eldo laughed.
“Ah,” Blue started. “I’d prefer Sondheim, to be honest, then at least we’d have striking music to entertain us while we wait for something to happen.” He purported.
“Don’t get much theatre out on the farm,” Dave intervened. “But I like this guy Weird Al. Oh, and Seinfeld. Classic!”
“Sure,” Eldo promulgated. “I always preferred apartment intrigue to palace intrigue, anyway. But not Friends, eh? Awful stuff.”
“Yikes, no.” Dave agreed.
“Still,” Blue advanced. “Pointiest nipples in America, and all that.”
Stunned contemplating silence seemed to be the general reaction.
“Eh..” Eldo slowly incremented. “What does that.. even.. mean?”
“Not quite sure..” Blue pondered, finishing in an elucidated tone. “But I read it somewhere and thought it sounded intelligent.”
"Aha," Dave contemplated. "Certainly.."
“Clear..” Eldo concluded, “as mud.”

That angle might have worked just as well, but I was perhaps more inspired by Robert Louis Stevenson. study

Why, hasn’t it caught on that this is an epic quest yet? slap laugh

Also I wonder if not a fair chunk of people watch Seinfeld at least in part for the catchy theme tune. scratch

I would continue, but this is too much like the perfect ending Razz

What I was doing when I couldn't sleep yesterday. Can't out-topical our new kiwi member though, unless Eldy really has taken up dancersice. Shrugging

“You can head up now,” the nearest guard said to them in a confidentially tone.
“What about the rest of the people?” Pointing to the line in front of them.
“Oh, they are Dark Planet,” the guard said looking at his watch. “Their session’s at two. Oh, hello there reverend,” he said to seeing Blue straightening up, nodding. Blue gave him a friendly yet timid, slightly exhausted smile.
They headed up the stairs, elated.

Eldo was so happy he couldn’t help to skip and jump a little, a bit like Tinker Bell he thought, spreading around some magic dust, finally, finally, home.
“Hey, where did you learn those moves?” Blue asked, always a skittish dancer. “That’s some urban stuff, right?” Eldo certainly had a Billy Elliot streak in him, it seemed.
“Certainlee not at a barn dance,” Dave spat, not unfriendly.
“Oh..” Eldo paused. Well, he might have thrown some hip-hop moves in from his dancercise class, he thought, not thinking. “Just something I picked up, I guess” he said, twirling guessing.
“Did not know you were an aficionado of the rhythmic arts,” Dave mused.
Eldo considered, he guessed he’d mostly kept his dancing activities to the privacy of the tower. Great way to keep in shape, relax, unwind after a long-ish day pushing paperwork around his desk.
“Have you ever contemplated the history of modern dance?” Dave ventured. “Isadora Duncan, Maud Allan and Loie Fuller.. all thee greats.”
“I think I tried it once,” Blue offered. “But pulled a muscle.”
“I always preferred the postmodern approach, Merce Cunningham,” Eldo intervened. “Not so formalistic, more free.” He pirouetted.
“Figure you to be a postmodernist..” Dave said shaking his head.
“Oh, only dance-wise,” Eldo corrected.
“And truth-wise?” Blue pondered.
“Oh, truth-wise as well, probably,” Eldo laughed, a little too heartily.
"A writer who says that there are no truths, or that all truth is 'merely relative,' is asking you not to believe him. So don't." Dave said, catatonically. «Roger Scruton.»
«Ah..» Blue and Eldo said. And perhaps they were right.

It's been so long since last you were here I'll have to go reread the last page to see where we're at. Good to have you back, Blue!

Thanks friend (and Figg in the other thread Wave ). I see I missed quite the renovation, I like what you have done with the place. That is to say.. A wizard arrives precisely when he means to, of course..

The first part of this story is not to bad a piece of writing, if I may say so myself, so for anyone who wants to go back to the start.. I can't say you won't regret it.. but one can hope.
