Week 4 -

Oops, well, looks like I couldn't sneak away this time.... I can feel myself blushing hard as the norn introduces herself as Panda. When she asks if I was her rescuer, I nod shyly, still blushing hard. I barely manage to say "You're welcome," when she thanks me, my blush growing even stronger.

Week 4 -

When Panda looks so sad after finding that her shelter & friend are gone, I can't help but give her a comforting hug, holding her tight & letting her cry herself out. I'm no good at saying comforting things, I never know what to say, so I remain silent, but pain & sorrow is something I understand quite well. Sometimes all you can do give them a hug & hold them as long as they need it. Eventually she falls asleep & I try to make sure she is as comfortable as I can make her before I head back to where Mahk Mako & c1anddsaddict are to meet me. I will return in the morning to check on her again.

My wings beat a little faster than they normally do as I fly through the night sky. The winds seem to pick up speed as well, carrying me along with them. Something is making me nervous this night, but I am not sure what it is. All I know is that my nerves are singing as they urge me to check & make sure c1anddsaddict & Mahk Mako are both okay as well.

On the way back to the way back to the meeting place, I decide to make a run past the spaceship ruins, just to take a quick look to see if I see anything that looks like that warp portal that Mahk Mako described. When I reach the spaceship ruins, I find that even they were hit by the avalanche, about half of the ruins were buried under the avalanche. Still I make a quick search through the ruins to see if I find anything. I find something that almost looks like it could be what Mahk Mako described, but... it's mostly buried under the snow & shattered trees from the avalanche, so I can't see enough of it to be completely sure if it is or not a warp portal.

I search the rest of the ruins for a bit longer, just to check & make sure that there aren't any possible warp portals visible. When I don't find any others, I take off into the sky, got to find c1anddsaddict to let him know about there maybe being one in the spaceship ruins, just like Mahk Mako had mentioned.

I'm most of the way to the meeting place & just passing over the last stretch of the avalanche zone when I hear another rumble from further up the mountain. Eyes wide I turn & look just in time to see another smaller avalanche roll down the mountain. Luckily it doesn't go toward the meeting place or the ruins, I breathe a sigh of relief over that, but it did draw my attention to something higher up the mountain. A dark crack in the mountainside, that had been hidden behind the snow until the recent avalanches.

Must.... investigate.... Must... find out... what is... up there.... Curiosity too strong to resist sends me flying up the mountain to find out what that dark crevice up there is... & what is inside it. The winds are growing stronger & more unpredictable as I fly up the mountainside, I'm almost blown off course a number of times. As I get closer I can see that it is a small valley, the entrance had been completely buried under the snow. When I finally reach the entrance & look inside, my eyes widen in surprise. There is an entire forest in there & more ruins as well! I wonder what is hidden under those ruins.
(full view here)
I'll have to check that out later, I have to get back to the meeting place & let them know what I found. It's hard but I manage to suppress my curiosity & pull myself away from that valley. I dive down the mountainside, flying toward the meeting place as fast as I can.

It's still completely dark when I finally reach the meeting place. My speed is high enough that I almost overshoot the camp. It takes me a moment to kill the last bit of my excess speed so that I can land safely without crashing hard into a snowbank again. Since I am concentrating on my landing, it isn't until after I've landed & started telling them about what I found that I notice the surprise that c1anddsaddict & Mahk Mako had dragged to the camp.

My voice trails off & my eyes grow huge as I look at it... "you found the warp portal?" It's my first time seeing one, at least one that I know what it is. And c1anddsaddict wants me to investigate it... "Are you sure you want me to investigate it? Considering what happened last time I messed with a teleporter?" I ask as I move closer to the warp portal & begin to connect myself to it to start examining it.

Week 4 -

As I examine the warp portal, I tell c1anddsaddict everything I find out about it. I am careful as I can be, & I breathe a sigh of relief as I manage to avoid setting it off. I'm glad that this time I didn't cause another accident. As c1anddsaddict ponders over the information I just gave her about the warp portal, I stretch my wings & wonder if I should bring Panda over here, she seemed so lonely. I think I will ask her if she wants to come over & join us so that she is not alone. I tell Mahk Mako & c1anddsaddict what I plan on doing, make sure that it is okay with them & then take off, flying toward the camp where Panda is.

Week 5, day 1 -

When I reach the place I had left Panda, I find it totally empty. Only the coals of the fire & her tracks leaving the camp still remain. I follow her tracks away from the camp & when I find where they end, I am rather puzzled. The tracks just end suddenly, no Panda within sight, no sign of a struggle, the tracks just stop. Then I remember what the others had said about this entire thing being a game & voting contestants off the island.... Oh.... that must be what happened hear, it was time for her to go home... I hope she will be able to meet up with her friend again.

Slowly I fly back to where c1anddsaddict & Mahk Mako are... got to let them know & continue helping c1anddsaddict with her quest & the warp portal. Ugh.... it's starting to get foggy & hard to see, at least the wind has died down.

Week 5, day 2 -

While on my way back to the camp after my most recent foraging & hunting trip, in the forest I startled a really strange critter out of hiding. Wow it looked scary....

EEEK! Why is it chasing after me?
I start flying faster & higher, my eyes widen in surprise when it keeps pace with me. Okay, I'd better get out of here I start flying higher. Yeowch! It jumped up & bit my tail! My tail still hurts from the polar bear attack. Okay that does it you pest, you are going to be dinner!
Next time it jumps at me, I tail smash it into one of the nearby tree trunks. It recovers before I reach it to finish it off. I have to lead it on a chase through the forest, dodging around trees to avoid it's attacks, & waiting for my chance to attack. It manages to bite & claw me several more times before I see my chance. I make a quick dive for the stone sticking out of the snow, & it gets several more bites on my tail before I am out of it's reach & high enough to use my weapon. I gain a little bit more height then dive at it. A rock with the speed of a dive attack behind it makes such a nasty sounding thud, but it did stun the critter long enough for me to reach it & finish it off. Well, we will be eating well tonight.
I gather more firewood as I carry the dead critter back to the camp, got to have plenty to make sure that it cooks properly. I am almost back to the camp when the fog finally fades away & it starts snowing. It feels so good to land at the edge of camp & let the snow numb the pain from the new bite marks in my tail.
I hope this critter is tasty.

Week 5, day 3

Ugh.... that critter wasn't very tasty, it was tolerable, but that was about it. Hmmm, maybe I can use what's left for fishing bait. We are starting to run low on other food supplies, so I should probably go hunting or fishing again. I think I'm in the mood for fish or something similar, so off to the ocean I go. I'll see if I can find something else that better suits c1anddsaddict's taste. So off into the foggy sky I go... I hope I don't get lost on my way to the ocean.

Week 5 day 4,

Ah.... it feels so good to be under the water again. I swim straight for one of the kelp forests & start collecting plenty of tasty plants, tangling them together so that it can be used as some what of a bag to carry the other stuff I plan to collect.

Ooo... That's a new kelp.

I've never seen it before, maybe I should call it an arrowhead kelp?

Oooo... A sea pen, I wonder how they taste.

Oww, they are hard to pull up.

Okay, what is that thing? I'm not sure if it is a fish, an eel, or a sea reptile of some time.

I really have no clue what to call that one, but they certainly are fast & hard to catch. I hope it's tasty. Hey! No wiggling out of the bag of kelp! I'd better get back to camp before this thing manages to escape.

I swim toward the surface, wrapping the kelp tighter around that strange critter, trying to keep it trapped. I want to know what it tastes like. As I burst through the surface of the water, I find out that the fog has turned to snow. Heavy wet snow... yuck. Stay out of my eyes snow! I need to see where I am going.

Week 5, day 4 - Uh oh, what's that noise?

When I reach the shore, I land to take a short rest & re-secure that wiggling critter, it's almost managed to escape the ball of kelp. I finish re-wrapping the strange critter & push off into the air, eager to return to camp & find out what the new things I've gathered taste like. Not even a moment after I left the ground, I hear a loud cracking noise. What was that?!

I look down & nearly drop the ball of kelp, luckily I barely manage to hang on to it. My eyes widen as I see the ground breaking apart underneath me. The ice cracking & floating away with the waves...

I didn't just break the island did I?

As I watch, I see the cracks continue to spread. Just how far do they go? How much of the island was actually just ice? Oh no... c1anddsaddict & the warp portal! Is the camp on solid land or breaking ice?

I pump my wings as fast as I can, I must find out if c1anddsaddict is okay. I'm not too worried about Mahk Mako since he is a water creature like me, but I don't know how well c1anddsaddict can swim. I fly toward camp with at full speed, but the cracks in the ice have spread even faster than I can fly, farther too. By the time I find where the camp should be, the cracks have spread far past it, & the small iceberg that the camp is now sitting on, is already starting to drift away toward the open ocean.

Luckily as I fly closer, I can see that c1anddsaddict is okay. Phew, thank goodness for that. My eyes widen slightly as I notice that the warp portal is now glowing. What caused it to activate? I hover just above the ice they are on, I'm not sure if I can land safely or not.

What should we do c1anddsaddict? Should I fly to the ship ruins & see if I can find some more cables or other things that we can use to help drag the portal or the ice closer to the actual shore of the island? Should I dive into the water & try to push the ice closer to the island's real shore? Should I try to fly & carry you to the shore?

What should we do?

Week 5, day 4 -

I leave the ball of kelp & critter with c1anddsaddict as I fly to the ruins to gather more cables. When I reach the ruins, I can see that the cracks have spread this far, but there are still enough chunks of ice with debris on them to allow me to search for cables & anything else that might be of use. I fly back to c1anddsaddict loaded down with cables & other salvage that I think might be useful. I drop the cables next to her & hope this works.

As c1anddsaddict hands us the cables, Mahk Mako & I dive into the water to start tying the cables around the ice chunk. By the time we have finished tying off the cables & turned the few remaining cables into guidelines & tow ropes, we have drifted much further out toward the open ocean. Taking a short flight, I take a quick glance around & notice that we currently are floating toward a thick cluster of large ice chunks, & that there are other ice chunks also floating toward us. I land next to Mahk Mako & warn him about it. "We are drifting further away from the island, & it looks like we might soon be crashing into a cluster of icebergs. It's going to be very dangerous to be in the water soon. You might want to use this chance to escape before the other icebergs get too close for you to escape without being crushed by them instead." After a few more moments of discussion with c1anddsaddict, Mahk Mako bids us farewell & swims away.

Now it's just c1anddsaddict & me left here alone with the warp portal on this floating chunk of ice.

After we have drifted closer to the thick cluster of icebergs ahead of us, I take another quick flight, going higher this time, & soon I see why there are so many icebergs ahead of us. The icebergs are stuck in a bottleneck ahead of us. All these icebergs around us are inside a large bay, & the only way out to the ocean is through that narrow gap between the two peninsulas at the mouth of the bay. There is only enough room for one or two of the icebergs to float through at a time, but there are 8 or more trying to pass through it at the same time. No wonder they are all getting stuck there.

Taking a closer look at the peninsula, I am very glad to see that there are some very strong looking trees fairly close to the water's edge. Maybe the cables will just barely be long enough to reach them & tie this iceberg to them to keep us from drifting away to sea. Until we are closer to those trees, all I can do is try to tow or tug the iceberg just a bit closer toward them & try to avoid the other ice chunks that might block us. Although, I suppose when we do crash into some of the other icebergs, I can anchor them to this one to help build a more stable base to keep this iceberg from capsizing so easily.

When we are finally within reach of the trees, I fly the cable rope over there, loop it around the tree & tie it off as best as I can. It's not easy tying knots with claws. The tree creaks & groans as it bends from the weight of the iceberg pulling against it, but it holds... for the moment. I fly back over to the iceberg & c1anddsaddict. What happens now, is up to you c1anddsaddict. Stay on this island, go together through the portal, or go alone through the portal... it's your choice now.

So, together through the portal it is. Even though I hadn't finished exploring this island, I look forward to seeing what awaits us on the other side of the portal. So many places & things I didn't get to explore or investigate... those old ruins up in that valley uncovered by the avalanche, the glowing critters in the pool in that beautiful safe cave buried by the avalanche, the ember reef, the depths of the haunted cave we sheltered in for most of our time here.... I never did get to re-find & follow all those glowing fish & shrimp I saw while hunting in the ocean.

Who knows when I will be able to return to this island & finish exploring it, but at least I have the coordinates for this island now so I should be able to return. I take one last look at the island before picking up the ball of kelp I had gathered earlier. It's a good idea to take a bit of extra food with you when you travel to a new place. It gives you an extra bit of time to find the new food sources without having to worry so soon. I had almost forgotten about the kelp ball during all that craziness. Hmmm, it seems lighter than it had earlier, so I take a quick peak inside.
Awww... that weird little critter escaped, who knows when it managed to crawl out of the kelp ball. I had wanted to find out what it tasted like.

Time to go. With a shy grin, I follow c1anddsaddict through the glowing blue portal.
