Chris smiles waspishly, which is how wasp people always smile for anatomical reasons, "Well, I am genuinely surprised that worked. Considering the nature of this place I expected the door to be made from rubber or to be some kind of mimic and eat my foot."

Looking around the room, Chris tries to think about how to handle the stairs. "Hmm... This place is based on wasting our time, so if we tried those steps it would take us hours."

"But what if... if we blosed the door and plugged that hole and fiddled with that fountain, this is the kind of place that will fill with water really fast..."

"Perhaps fast enough to push us up the tower quicker than the stairs..?"


She looks at the others, checking her dream logic.

oocI think plugs are pretty universal, since bath tubs have been around since before ancient rome. XD

You plug in the fountain, and it starts spewing freely with a satisfied "Hmmmmmmaaahhhh..." Worrying. In any case, the stairs light up all rainbow-like, and begin to shuffle upwards like an escalator. Words appear on the wall in GARISH PINK telling you that this is the Tower of Dreams, where Dreams come True and blah blah friendship. You don't really care, so long as it doesn't spew out nightmares at you.

Ride up the tower?

FimiAs the water began rising, Fimi frowned a bit. "So, just as a bit of a side note, I can't actually swim. I know this probably isn't the best time to mention this, but it is true."

With that, he attempts to move as far away from the water as possible. After all, drying all this fur is going to take ages!

Peering at the escalator, Chris jumps on, "It should be fine. If all else just hold your breath and try not to flail. Going -down- is the easy part, after all. I can swim, though I am not sure how well now that I have wings and mandibles. And a vagina."

"To my understanding vaginas do not in fact hinder swimming though."

FimiAs the water began to rise, Fimi jokingly ducked his head under and expelled all his air, flailing slightly to immitate drowning. Popping back up after a moment, Fimi flared at Chris. "I would really prefer if we DIDN'T talk about your reproductive organs, thank you. Might put me off food for a week, and might even put me off the ladies once I actually get back into my real body."

As the water actually got decently deep, Fimi began to pray that the water was super calm, otherwise, he would even have troubles just staying afloat!

The stairs casually carry you up into forever. It's not actually forever, but it's at least 3 stories. You like the idea of automatic stairs in such places, it's so civilized.

The actual second floor isn't, mind you. The other staircase across the room appears to be your target, but there is a young blue dragon in the middle of the room, covered in blankets and watching a sad film on the scrying mirror. A plinth explains:
Salutation!This dragon was relocated from the SUNDERING SKYLOFTS due to a falling out with his parents. They want him to be a knight-devouring monster. He wants to be a pretty princess and settle down with a handsome adventurer.

Make his dreams come true! Encounters don't have to end in violence.

Uh oh. It's going to be that sort of dungeon. Already you have the shivers. This would be better if the floor below you wasn't a swimming pool now. It's stopped filling up, but you get the hint that you're not going to go back down without an aquatic adventure.

FimiReading the plaque, Fimi suppresses a sigh. Considering how ineptly his allies keep handling social encounters, it seems to be up to him to boost the self-esteem of a wannabe-dragon-princess. He held up a hand to his companions, gesturing for them to stay back and STFU (He didn't want a repeat of the bear incident, after all. Or the nightclub guard incident.) and hope he can save all their skins. After all, while normally there would be no doubt in their ability to mop up such a small dragon, they were not in their normal forms.

Straightening out his vest and still begrudging the fact that he completely lacked pants, he strode forward, walking heavily enough to announce his presence and approach, but not hard enough to be stomping. Fimi moved to the side of the mirror, careful not to rudely walk in front of the movie. Bowing deeply, Fimi smiled and proceeded to lay on the charm, waiting for a lull in the movie to begin speaking. "Good day, my princess. I am Fimi, a traveler of sorts, and I am grateful to make the acquaintance of one as beautiful and exquisite as yourself."

Honestly, looking at the dragon, Fimi pondered how he actually kind of agreed with the words he spoke. While he typically found the free-spirited and fickle nature of Reds and Blacks to be closer to his own, the long graceful horns and long limbs of the blue lent the creature an elegance that its spikier, bulkier cousins lacked. For a moment, Fimi imagined himself running a furred hand down the length of the dragon's length, over the smooth horns and thin wings. Fimi quickly shook the image from his head, attempting to mentally reassert that not only is his current form only temporary, but that the dragon also happens to be male, something that Fimi is personally not into. Either way, hopefully this encounter does not get out of hand...

He turns and looks at you, goggling slightly. "The rat talks. Why does the rat talk...?" He picks you up gently, and examines. This is an odd pet. "I don't think I have any carrots for you, though there is a hamster ball in the back."

FimiWhen giant talons come to pick you up and examine you, you tend to not try to fight back. In this case, Fimi saw fit as to not interrupt the dragon's examination of him with movement. Instead, he merely spoke up politely, "While I appreciate the thought, I am afraid that it would not be much help. For I am not really a rat! I am a gnome, cursed to this fur-covered form until I complete a long, arduous quest, fraught with exciting challenges and intriguing side characters, such as my band of fellow cursed beings, over there. However, I did not expect to find one as lovely as yourself on this quest. I am Fimi. It is very nice to meet you."

Fimi sticks out a paw in an offer of a handshake, hoping that it will lessen the manhandling and REALLY hoping that it will prevent him from getting shoved into a giant hamster ball. After all, he's not even a hamster! How rude!

Chris lets Fimi take the lead, but then grins as she decides to sow a little harmless mischief, "Did you know Gnomes have princes?" she comments casually, nodding at Fimi.

"He can't be a prince right now, cos he is a rat, but if he finishes his quest and changes back he will be a Prince again."

She grins at Fimi, then toward the plinth. The beast wants to settle down with an adventurer, after all, so why not toss her a gnome?

"Oh. I suppose rats can be princes too. Or gnomerats. You are odd..." He sighs. If only he were a pretty pretty princess to run off with this... well, I guess he's a prince. But no. He is a fierce dragon who is supposed to guard stuff. "I really don't want to do the fighting thing..."

Fimi"Then don't! Anyone can put expectations on you, but the only thing that truly matters is what you want yourself. Not following your heart is only betraying yourself, after all. Take my family, for example. Whole lot of 'em, going back generations, were inventors! I came along, and I never had the aptitude for inventing, nor did I have the desire. I wanted to play music! So that's what I did. It was tough, not going to lie. Lots of hardships and whatnot, but eventually, I achieved that dream. I've put on shows for thousands of people, live! That's a kind of happiness I couldn't have found inventing, and I am so glad I sought it. You owe it to yourself to seek your happiness."

Taking a moment to breathe after his weirdly exhilarating speech, Fimi sighed a bit. Both what the dragon had said and how Chris the gender-bending wasp was trying to throw him to the wolves permanently sunk in, and Fimi shrugged. "Yeah, I'm a bit weird. A gnomish rock star prince. Actually, that's really weird. But I am satisfied with who I typically am and what I've done. I kind of think everyone should get the opportunity to have that feeling. I'm on a quest to reacquire that me, and I don't see why you couldn't go on a quest to find that you." Fimi reaches out and lightly taps one of the dragon's chest scales. "Whether it be a quest of meditation and self-realization, or a quest of excitement and adventure with a band of fellows, you should be true to yourself. If need be, I'm more than willing to help you in whatever capacity I can."

Fimi relaxed. If the dragon really wanted to kill him, there was little he could do about it right now. Looking the creature in the eyes, Fimi slowly twitched his tail, waiting for a response.

Chris spots the look of betrayal in Fimi's eyes and her own go a bit wide. She had intended it as a cue not a betrayal!

To make up for this she steps forward, "If you aren't a fan of fighting there are a lot of other options. How about finding a wizards college? They would protect you, build you a nice safe and pretty lair all to your own. You might need to give them a few scales now and then, or a vial of blood, but I know a lot of wizards who would find that totally worth it."

"And while you are there, safe from people trying to kill you, maybe you could take in some classes? Find who you really want to be."


She shrugs, causing her wings to flutter, "It has to be better than just lying around here, fighting for little reason."

The dragon is aglow. College! The best place to meet people and fall in love. Yes, this shall be good. "Yeah! I can do it!" He flies out the window, which is less graceful than it sounds because the window is Very Small, but he squeezes through regardless.

A chest appears, with a note. "You are Best Psychologist. Get Loot." It appears to be one of those chests with an item limit. You can take 2.
LootTypeDesc
Summon: Emo DragonConsumableCalls the Emo Dragon to your side. Full round action.
AdoptionElixirThe dragon king is very disappointed in his son. You will be a better dragon. Side effects are varied, and not cause for malpractice suit.
Mid-Tier HoodieMagewearThis hoodie has a dragon scale motif, but none of the perks that actual dragonscales would confer. +2 AC, +1 Reflex.
FiregemAddonJam it into your weapon to give it +1d4 FIR damage on hit. Doesn't stack with other sorts of on-hit damage.

FimiExamining the items, Fimi asks, "So, time to take a vote on items, I guess. Nothing I particularly need or can use, although if no one else wants anything, I'll try the elixer. How bad could it be, after all?"

Fimi walks away a few steps and squats down a bit, trying to stretch out his legs from all the dangling about they had been doing. "And Chris, next time you try to sell me out to a gender-confused, archetype-confused critter, we're gonna have a few words. I'd rather not spend my remaining days stuck as a pet rat, after all."
