"Now I can't think of anything. What were we looking for again?"

Permalink

"Uh, a field guide to the unmoored mountains."

"Field guide to the unmoored mountains," Rabka says to the compass.

The arrow spins ones and then settles, pointing deeper into the library.

Permalink

"Huh."

Rabka motions Glen along as she heads into the stacks.

Glen follows.

The compass leads them through a bizarre maze of rooms and hallways, finally stopping in a room with a slowly melting ice sculpture of a cactus in its center.

The compass directs them to one of the shelves where 'A guide to the flora and fauna of the Unmoored Mountains' is waiting.

Rabka pulls it and flips through.

It's full of vivid, colorful images of plants and animals.

Glen stops her when they reach the page on bell trees.

 

Permalink

"A lot of these things look neat. I'll put in a bell tree first though -" She weaves back out of the stacks, a little tentative.

Permalink

Once she has the book, the compass starts pointing to the exit. 

Permalink

"I wonder if the castle thinks you're in charge."

Permalink

"I dunno! How do castles decide that? Does having made it count?" She follows the compass along.

Permalink

"It might. Usually that is decided on creation. It doesn't have to be the person making it, everything here probably answered to the Marquess even if she didn't make it herself, but if everyone else is gone you are the obvious choice."

Permalink

"Is it gonna decide it likes you better if I take too much advice from you?"

Permalink

She laughs.

"I don't think so, not unless they specifically enchanted to do that."

Permalink

"So far I haven't tried to make any things do stuff that it seemed like they did and had them go 'nah' but I don't know what all they're supposed to do..."

Permalink

"Have you anywhere the castle won't let you go?"

Permalink

"Oh, there's like one wing I couldn't go in."

Permalink

"So I guess the magic hasn't accepted you as complete master of the castle. That's too bad."

Permalink

"Can I fix it?"

Permalink

"You could try."

Permalink

"I mean, sure I can, but will it work? Do I just ask nicely? Do I knock in a weird way?"
