[ while out exploring the edge of the village, Glitch happens upon a hedge maze he'd know anywhere: the expansive, magically protected one outside the royal lands of Finaqua. he gasps and makes for one of the entrances, trailing his hands through the leaves as he walks.

he'll get to the other end of the maze and he'll be back in the O.Z. where he belongs, safe and happy and with his friends, he's sure of it. he can almost hear the sounds of home: the breeze off the lake, the call of the gump in the woods, the trill of jewel doves, the...unnerving coo and chitter of monkey bats.

Glitch turns a corner and freezes, his heart pounding, then slowly looks up to see a half-dozen familiar silhouettes. and one of them is swooping at him-- ]


Oh gods-- MOBATS! [ he takes off at a run, turning corners at random and going deeper into the maze. ] No no no i-i-it's gonna...heeelp!


(ooc: backdated to the 27th! monkey bats (flying monkeys GET IT?) are about the size of spaniels and have I guess about a seven foot wingspan. also claws. kill them at will, Glitch will thank you :D )

Oof! [ and Glitch goes with his momentum and crashes into a hedge wall, then bounces off it and goes into a defensive posture to face the new-- not-threat. who'd just tackled one of the evil beasties.

so much awed and terrified staring for you, Angel.]

[ the awed-and-terrified staring remained during the mobat's execution, replaced by a slightly affronted pout before Glitch catches on...right, mobats, ugly. single firm nod of agreement. ]

I I think so, I... [ Glitch rubs his nose which was lightly sratched by the hedge, then studies his hands which are also lightly scratched from defending his poor head, then tugs his dilapitated coat back into what he assumes is presentability. ]

Yes, I'm alright. Thank you very much for...snapping that thing's neck like that.

[ Glitch had also been adapting to Luceti, after a fashion. it was fantastical in ways very different from his home, but so far everyone he'd met had been helpful - well, maybe not the pirate-conscience - so he'd try and help in return. ]

Monkey bat. They belong to the sorceress, and they spy for her and and-- [ here, have Glitch doing a Gaga-esque monster claw at you. ] Like that.

Azkadellia. You...well, I I doubt you'd've heard of her.

[ Angel you just gave Glitch a weapon what are you. he handles the dagger like someone who obviously has no familiarity with it and is not precisely comfortable. ]

Um. Thanks. S-so this haywire thing isn't normal? [ look he's used to worrying about mobats okay. ]

(Deleted comment)
Oh! S-so you haven't been here long either?

[ if that's the case Glitch is thrilled to meet someone as un-clueful as himself. ]

(Deleted comment)
[ will they have a secret handshake? ]

Me too! I-it's all been really...weird. [ pause. introduction? yes. ] Name's Glitch.
