**************** LUSE IS NOW OPEN may the best person win *******************
Let Me Get The Story Post in next please. Well step one failed. I just cannot get a second post going so it all has to be here. Story first then rules.
The Story you have all been waiting for. The lives and loves and passage hopping of our two hero's and various other bit players.
it was a very rare week off for our fighters for the truth and after much discussion Justin and Maddie decided on a visit to the Myan Casino.
They has only just arrived when all hell was let loose as several ugly people were thrown out for being boring. Maddie tossed her latest cute hairstyle and remarked to Justin 'thats more room for us and we can concentrate on trying to win some of those lovely rubies. If we won enough I could have a belt made to go with my new slinky dress. I meant to ask you. What do you think about some added to my next best pair of work boots, just stylishly round the steel toecaps?'
'Well' said Justin 'I am getting a tad bored with this now Mads. Can we like make off and do something more interesting now. Sewing/sticking rubies has gone far enough.' Mads was a bit miffed because she so liked the way all those rubies glittered but if you are in the same show you have just got to make an effort to get along and to see the other persons point of view. She had a plan!!!!!! Now Jeff had last been seen hanging out in Unicornopea and she was getting rather fond of Jeff but how to get Justin to go there. More importantly how to get Justin to a) think it was all his idea and b) to try and tie him down to who it was that actually had caught his eye.
While she was ruminating a great shout echoed up and down the casino. Another new realm, what! More shouting, it was getting difficult to hear. They pushed their way to the front where a Lola or Lola clone was explaining. An Air world had appeared out of nowhere and it was unlike anything else ever seen in any of the Passages. The only thing on this world was a desert like site. This really needed the best minds to determine what is happening, Lola explained that Mads father, Blue, Jeff and most of the other daring do good guys had gone on ahead but that she had been summoned to find the amazing twosome and get them there as soon as possible. Then, thankfully, her job was done and she would appear no more in this storylet.
So much for our vacation they said to each other as they started off......
The trip through the passage was an adventure in itself. There were strange intersections, doors that were partially open showing various enticing vistas some so obviously not of SPland, some were recognisable from history and one that could be of the future. After what seemed like forever a door with a red light above it came in to view, justin was jumping up and down in anticipation as they got closer so was very disappointed when Maddie's father stuck his head out. Daddy greeted them with a grumbling 'how come it took you so long. We have been here for ages and I have even had time to return home for your mother. "What" exclaimed Justin "you mean Auntie Faith is here? She has never left home for as long as I have known her. How have you managed that Uncle Rupert?" "Dont forget she was a seeker too before she retired to bring up Maddie and to look after you while your parents were away" "Oh, of course. I had forgotten." Replied Justin looking slightly pink. "Right lets get you inside and give you the fourpenny tour. Then you can have a nice cool drink of your liking and you can re-aquaint yourselves with some old friends" said Rupert leading them on. "We have got quite a party going on. This is the most perfect Utopia and the best place you will ever find to chill and relax in. It is known only to the few of us who are here and one other. We had to tell Lola and I just hope she has not told....."
There was an enormous crash and................
The door of the Passage had burst on and out was pooring a group of the most despicable villains from all over the worlds that our valiant twosome had discovered. There was the black robed evil queen, the very small pirate, a guy in a mask plus others two numerous to mention all lead by a pipe smoking Lola who was wielding a trident. The others were all carrying weapons perloined from different regions and sites. Spears, swords, rotten fruit, that sort of thing. At the same time the noise that they had all heard was another SP door bursting into existence oposite the original. Out of this came the heros, the gods, the unicorns who had permitted some of the humans to ride them, the little people (dwarfs, imps and the odd goblin who had got into the story by mistake). The two sides came together with a crash and some green smoke that Merlin threw into the affray just to muddy the waters. The seakers group quickly overcame their suprise, Rupert thrust Faith behind him, Jeff shielded Maddie and very surprisingly Justin turned to support................
More people tried to enter from the baddies side. One was Cruela De Vile from 101 dalmations and her two raty looking henchmen and close by was the evil queen from Smow White. Disney was well represented but as suddenly as they appeared a giant had swept them away and a voice could be heard muttering about 'we cannot afford the royalties'. The tide of the battle was already turning, while the baddies had the help of surprise the good guys were the most valient, strong of character, pure of heart, there was no stopping them. The baddies were fourced back through there makeshift passage and it was sealed by the Gods. Posiadon gathered them all together and explained that the passage had always been unstable as the minds that had fashioed it were unstable. A surprise to some was the knowledge that the mind set of the maker always influenced the passage. The multi mind instability could cause the passage to implode and if that happened all the nasties would disappear for good. The unforunate thing for the side of rite was that this would not be known for several years. Then Athena stepped forward and turned to the assembly, 'we the good guys give this new place along with the unique passage to the Seakers. To be there forever as a place of relaxation from the stresses of their working lives'. The gods then gathered the mutitude of good guys together and lead them through the stable passage and away.
Rupert with his arm round Faiths shoulders looked at the others who were left.............
'Hopefully we shall have no more excitement from now on' said Rupert 'I see a lot of the people who were here before have been swept away by the Gods'. This only left a few speakers, definately not enough for a party. After a short meeting, seakers not being ones for authority even when it is them. They decided to put the word out firstly to the retired seakers who were scattered about all the known worlds, that there was a place they could come to where they could rest their weiry bones and would not be pestered to keep saving worlds. Then to all the active seakers of which there are only about two dozen at any one time. For these is was to be a place to meet up, leave messages, visit retired family members, truely a seaker Utopia. Rupert, who was acting as unofficial chairman closed the meeting, looked across at where our four hero's were standing and said 'Dont you have something to say to us Jeff and Maddie. Do you others want to speak as well or are you waiting for us to find your Parents Justin and ...........
Jeff stepped up to the mark holding very tightly to Maddie's hand. He addressed Justin and Faith with the normal blah, blah, hand in marriage, blah. I know I am rather a bit older but I care, blah blah. The most interesting of the things he said was that he was prepared to be a very modern husband, provided they gave their consent, there would be no breaking up of the Maddie - Justin parnership provided Mads and Just wanted to continue and now that they had their own Utopia they could actually stop sneaking round corners hiding and meeting only when it was part of the major story line. Rupert and Faith (of course) were happy to give their consent. Another soft wave of slight excitement went through the rest of the company as a rather battered couple stumbled through the proper passage doorway, clutching on to each other as if a bit squiffy. Justin, who had been watching the Jeff, Maddie, Faith, Rupert conversation with great interest holding tightly on to the hand of.... Turned round, did a double take and keeping hold of the hand and dragging the rest of the body with him went running over to the couple who were of course his Dad and Mum. Rather breathlessly he blurted out, 'Mum, Dad I think you have met Brillianti before. Well as soon as you have got your breath, had a shower, caught up on all that ihas been happening with Aunt and Uncle and had a short rest, we are going to get married' then more hugging and loads of cross conversations were started and some were even finished. They was a great deal of merriment, only a small amount was due to alcohol, great plates of food appeared courtesy of the Gods. A few days later all the preperations had been finalised and two very lovely brides steped forward to be united with their men. They had a blissful honeymoon as everyone else left so they had Utopia to themselves until of course the next emergency arose. OH! Whats this! You want to know who is Justins partner! Thats easy it is.............
