IoQ: A Flying LessonIt was a nice afternoon, things seemed to be settling down and the summer sun was shining bright outside. Thumbelina had finished cooking some bacon and eggs for her children as well as some sliced oranges she had picked from the outskirts of the desert. In addition she had made a cake with dried berries and lemon zest. As her guests always seemed to expand and contract, she had made far too much. But she remembered that Waldor had moved in next door and thus she packed a bit of everything into a basket before heading up the hill and knocking lightly on the Owl's door.
There was literally no light inside his hous. The windows were covered with heavy drapes and no candles were lit within so when Walor cracked the door open and sniffed it seemed almost as if the darkness of his home clung to him. A moments pause preceeded him opening the door a fraction more. "Mrs. Belmont."
"Hello Mr. VonBartok.. Though.. You do not need to be so formal. Thumbelina is fine." She smiled lightly as she pr

Thumbelina was happy to have finally made her way to the large body or water. She had long since removed her clothing. Resurfacing near the lilypad Alyx was on, she smiled lightly. "Oh Alyx! Good evening! I haven't seen you in quite some time, I was starting to worry you had taken ill."
Refreshed from a nap on a giant, Matches had followed Thumby off for a swim and was still swimming along in the water as the fairy chatted with her friend.
Alyx swiveled on his hands, looking to the swimming fairy. "Nah, just a bout of shut-in-ness." Not fazed by the fact that the world was literally upside-down to him at this moment. One hand carefully waved to Matches, as much as he could without losing balance.
Matches waved back, laughing softly before she resumed blowing bubbles in the water.
"I see." The pale fairy laughed lightly, her form still hidden below the water's surface. "Well I do hope y
IoQ: To Make a Friend It was bright when he stepped through to his new world-he could tell by heat that danced along his feathers. Warm climate perhaps? Not that it mattered, he could molt or grow more feathers depending on where he was. What he did moderately enjoy was the sound of silence that rang around him, moderate silence anyway. He could here insects buzzing, leaves moving, grass swaying in the wind. Something serene and calm crossed across Waldor's face just before he became aware of another faint sound that made him sigh heavily-a heartbeat.
Thumbelina had been out in the Valley collecting some fruits and herbs. That area had far more than the Lagoon this time of year. Truthfully she was a very quiet person having spent far too much of her life as one allowed to little else... Besides.. She was content.. Her heart still ached.. but she was resigning herself to life on the island. A disturbance in the wi
