JOHN: i dunno. JOHN: but i think it might have to do with this new power i have. ROSE: What power? JOHN: it's not a god tier power. JOHN: it's something else. something i got when i stuck my hand in a magic thing. ROSE: A magic thing? JOHN: um, that's a long story. JOHN: one involving pirates. ROSE: Pirates?? JOHN: i said it's a long story! JOHN: anyway, when i put my hand in the thing... JOHN: i became all... blurry. ROSE: Blurry. JOHN: yes. JOHN: and i kept randomly getting blurry and disappearing. JOHN: and now i think i'm sort of unstuck in existence. JOHN: like i'm not fully a part of reality anymore, or bound by the rules governing it. ROSE: ... JOHN: man, i'm doing a terrible job explaining this. JOHN: ok, the bottom line is, now i just randomly disappear sometimes! JOHN: and i reappear somewhere else in time and space. JOHN: but it's not really like normal time travel. JOHN: at least, i don't think so. JOHN: with regular time travel, the rules are pretty strict. JOHN: either paradox space already accounted for your time traveling, and you were always supposed to do it all along... JOHN: or you messed up, and changed something you weren't supposed to. in which case you just made a bad timeline, and everyone dies or something. right? ROSE: Sure. JOHN: but this isn't like that. JOHN: i'm not sure how i know, but it feels like these jumps are totally outside all those rules. JOHN: when i jump somewhere, like in the past... JOHN: i think i can actually change stuff that isn't supposed to be changed. JOHN: which makes me kinda nervous! ROSE: Hmm. ROSE: Can you demonstrate this ability? JOHN: not really. JOHN: i mean, not intentionally. JOHN: i can't seem to control the jumps. JOHN: maybe that's for the best though. JOHN: if i could control it, and tried to use it to my advantage, i would probably just make a huge mess of things. TEREZI: Y3S, YOU WOULD ROSE: Even so, it will be worth noting if you're able to refine the ability. ROSE: Could you please keep me informed of any developments? JOHN: yeah! ROSE: And while you're at it, maybe you could tell us exactly what happened just after we arrived. JOHN: ummmm... JOHN: well, we were all pretty confused at first. JOHN: you all just appeared out of nowhere, and started babbling about evil jade. JOHN: you asked me what happened, but i didn't know anything because i just got there myself, and was all alone. JOHN: but then it was cool, we all just walked around the land of hills and stone henges, or whatever it's called, and caught up a bit on the last three years. JOHN: we were trying to figure out what to do, and decided it would be a good idea to try and meet up with all the new kids. JOHN: but we had no idea where they were. JOHN: and i still don't, except i have since determined that my teen nanna is evil too. JOHN: but she is more like an evil robot than a scary wolf girl. um, but i digress. JOHN: so we were planning to make some scouting expeditions to the new planets to look for them, and everything was fine. JOHN: that is, until evil jade showed up. JOHN: she made you all disappear again, and then came after me, but i used my windy powers to evade her, which really pissed her off! JOHN: so she beat the crap out of me. :( JOHN: but then i randomly zapped away, and have been running from her ever since. JOHN: i am swishing the breeze around like crazy to throw her off my trail, but she keeps finding me. JOHN: she's so crafty! ROSE: That's good. ROSE: We need you out there if we're going to stand a chance of accomplishing anything. ROSE: I agree with our prior conclusions. Finding the other players is imperative. ROSE: Given the current state of the session, I would not be surprised if they are all prisoners as well. ROSE: Do you think you can find them? JOHN: yes, i can try. JOHN: what should i do when i find them? ROSE: ... ROSE: That's a good question. JOHN: heheh. ROSE: First, I guess just tell them, ROSE: We're here. JOHN: alright. ROSE: I don't know. We'll figure something out. JOHN: if i see your mom, is there anything you want me to tell her? ROSE: My mom? JOHN: yes. i mean, your kid mom, obviously. ROSE: I know. ROSE: Uh, ROSE: Wow.
