[It's been a long time since we've heard from Sven and Norma hasn't… 
20th-Aug-2008 10:24 pm
[It's been a long time since we've heard from Sven and Norma hasn't it? Well, the last time we saw our heroes they were in great MORTAL PERIL. While on their search for the elusive Everlight, they came across a giant, glowing tree. Which also happened to be a man-eating tree.

Which brings us to their current dire situation. Sven is within the tree's grasp, valiantly trying to fight it off and keep from being eaten. Norma, meanwhile, is running around quite aimlessly trying to defeat the tree with a book. A rather shiny book, but a book nonetheless.

Will they defeat the tree? Will they make it out alive? Tune in now to find out!]


Master! J-just hold on! I'll- [Holds the book up towards the tree trying to reflect sunlight onto it] I'll get you down! [Tries another spot, maybe there's sunlight there] Leave it to- [Third time's a charm? Not quite.]

This isn't working!

A-agh! [Meanwhile, Sven is emptying the contents of every pocket, bag, and haversack he can reach in a desperate attempt to free himself. With most items, there's little else he can do aside from throw them at the mouth of the tree monster. It didn't seem to appreciate the moldy bread, the odd fish, and the bag of marbles being chucked into its face, but it still can't yank Sven away.] Hey! What're you doing over there, anyway?!

I thought it might turn to stone if I could shine some sunlight on it!

What're you going on abo--AAUGH! [Suddenly, his grip slips and he's pulled towards the tree's POKEY JAWS!! OH NO...!!! Thankfully, he barely saves himself from death by propping his feet against the trunk... just above and below its teeth.] EEEEK!!

MASTER! [Drop the book in surprise and it flops open. But she doesn't notice that, she runs closer to the base of the tree] Oh that's it! Take this you stupid tree! FIREBALL! [That might not have been the best aim]

[Indeed, Norma's dinky little fireballs collide with some stray branches and roots... and Sven's backpack, which starts to smolder dangerously and sprout flames here and there. The tree flings him onto the ground to get away from the blaze. Sven rolls once or twice through the tangle of roots, and then raises his head.] Wh...whoa. Whew! Good job, Norma!

[Sniffs the air] Is something burning?

[Running over to him!She can't believe that worked] You're burning you idiot! You're on fire! [Unfortunately the first idea to put it out that comes to mind is to STOMP OUT the fire. It works, for the most part.]
23rd-Aug-2008 03:46 pm (UTC)
Wha--OOF!! [Is promptly stomped on. THANK YOU NORMA. As she's expertly putting out the fire a tear in Sven's backpack cracks open, sending a little tubular something rolling out onto the ground.]

[It's a stick of BADASS EXPLOSIVES, and the fuse is already lit.]
23rd-Aug-2008 07:08 pm (UTC)
[Your quite welcome! And she's being very thorough about it too so she's still standing on Sven's back as the tube rolls out]

Is that-?

OHHH! WE'RE GONNA DIE!

Urg. Hey, hey! What're you all worked up about? [Picks up the thing and gives it a skeptical look] Here, see? It's just a stick of dynamite.

23rd-Aug-2008 09:51 pm (UTC)
...A STICK OF DYNAMITE?!

[To make matters worse, the two of them are once again seized by the monstrous foliage and hoisted higher and higher into the air!! OH NO!]
23rd-Aug-2008 11:30 pm (UTC)
AAAAAAAAAAHH!! [Norma's really getting tired of this tree now! She'd blast it again with eres, but it's got a good hold on her this time and she's not in a position to get a good attack off. From where she is though, she can see Sven who's... still holding the dynamite. Great.]

Master! Don't just hold it! Get rid of it!
23rd-Aug-2008 11:44 pm (UTC)
I know, I know! [He winds up! Here's the pass!! It's in the air! It's flying towards the monster's mouth! It's...!


IT'S...!]




[IT'S GOOD!!]

[SHIT'S ON FIRE.]

[Norma gets thrown down to the ground hard after that attack on the tree. She turns in time to watch it writhe in pain, frost spewing from it's mouth and turning instantly to steam from the blaze. It was really taking a beating, being attacked from the inside like that. Even one of it's branches crashes down to the ground near Norma] AGH! Y-YIKES! Master? MASTER! Where are you?!

[Worried? Of course not.]
24th-Aug-2008 01:31 am (UTC)
[That poor tree isn't doing much other than burning and freaking out at the moment. Sven, on the other hand, is nowhere to be found...]

Ah...hah... BWAHAHAHAHA! Whew!!

[But at least he sounds perfectly okay!]
