Something Strange in the Hidden Holt, or: Why Wolfriders Will Never be Bikeriders



"AYOOAAAH!

Wolfriders, it's time to attack.

this strange thing

which is in our holt."



And so they attacked,

the foe never moved.

Except for the wheels,

which spun upon touch.



"What can this be,

this foreign design?

It has been years,

since Two-Edge was here"



Then they heard a voice,

which rose from the ground.

Speaking in riddles,

speaking in song:



"Try it,

dear wolf chief.

My newest device.

Try it and see,

if you know how it works.

Even I cannot give,

the final reply."



'A challenge!'

Thought Cutter,

and looked at the thing.

He tried various ways,

before he got it right:

went a short while

then hit a branch!



Now you would think that this was the end,

of playing around with the device.

However, all Wolfriders, wanted to try;

all with their limps,

aching so bad.



That night when Leetah,

was healing the wounds

three old friends,

stepped into the Holt.



Aroree,

Venka,

and Two-Edge as well.

The last who had clearly,

gone free of his hell.



"I see that you found,

my toy for our child.

Now tell me, dear wolf-chief;

how can it be,

with your balance,

your agility-skills,

you could not avoid the big fall?"



"I do not know!"

Said Cutter, and laughed.

"But one thing is sure:

Wolfriders is, what we always will be!

And you, my dear friends, are having a child?

Seems recognition always strikes true."

Embala

*chuckles* Bad day for the proud Wolfrides Tongue ... and a busy one for Leetah.

Now I would really like to see Two-Edge's creation! Love the riddle ... and how Cutter cannot resist a challenge!

A cub for Two-Edge and Venka? A Recognition? Between Two-Edge and Aroree? Or ... a little Troll child after all?

You owe us a sequal, oh twisted-cryptic poem-thing!

RedheadEmber

Recognition and a cub for Two-Edge and Venka! Happy



And Two-Edge's creation was the bike, or something similar at least!



BTW... notice how the healing part is actually double...

THIS THREAD IS FEELING SAD AND LONELY!

Embala

poor lonely thread Unhappy

Where are the other four?
Maybe I can make up at least a scene ... or two ... *grmpfls at d*** $$%&/($& ... grmpfl at AUa*

Startear

I am working on mine right now. It is actually progressing rather nicely.

jeb

I wrote a story for this! A really bad one...but a story nonetheless!

You can read it here.

(I take no responsibility for brain damage inflicted by reading it.)

Embala

How about taking responsibility for inspiring effects, jeb?
That's genius and hilarious and unique - truely an encounter of the fourth kind! XD

An illustration of the special sort for a special contribution!

jeb

YES! That is so perfect, and so close to my own mental image. I love the riding gloves and I think Skywise came out particularly well. Thank you, Embala!

Embala

hehehe ... I love it when a plan is functioning!

Really, this picture was inevitable after your last sentence, jeb. The gloves were a must do and Skywise ... he longed for the glasses last minute. Wink Thank You!
