"Paper and something to write with will help. Eventually, I will need to be able to write on something large enough to stand on."

Permalink

"I don't think we have paper that size, but for now you can have some regular printer paper." Brian snaps his fingers at Jackson and points, and Jackson hops up and fetches paper from the printer in the corner.

Permalink

Ponder stands and takes the paper.

"Thanks. Where should I go?"

Permalink

"Kitchen table?" suggests Jackson, pointing.

Permalink

"Thanks."

Ponder sits down at the table and begins working. 

Permalink

"Have fun," says Brian. "Jackson, c'mere."

Jackson and Brian slip off.

Some seven minutes later, concerning violent noises may be heard, muffled but not silenced by the intervening bedroom door.

Permalink

He stands up quickly and stares at the door. He slowly approaches it and then hears another violent noise and winces. He quickly starts muttering a spell, saying all but the last word.

Then he creeps forward and tries the doorknob. 

Permalink

They didn't think to lock it! He is treated to the sight of Jackson being viciously paddled while hogtied and moaning and naked on their bed. Brian is still clothed, and drops the implement in startlement when the door opens. "What the hell, dude!"

Permalink

Ponder turns bright red, but doesn't close the door.

"You're hurting him!" he says, confused and alarmed. 

Permalink

"Dude!" repeats Brian, throwing the nearest blanket over Jackson. "Don't walk in on people if you hear sex noises! Not cool!"

Permalink

"Oh- is that... you're- er, I'm sorry!"

He slams the door and backs up and hits the wall and sits down with his head buried in his hands.

Permalink

There are no concerning violent sounds from the bedroom for the next few minutes.

Permalink

He gets himself under control and goes to the kitchen table and works very intensely on finding a way back.

Permalink

Eventually the noises start up again.

Permalink

He knows what they are this time. Though, Jackson had been tied up. 

He buries his hands in his head again and then takes out a clean sheet of paper and begins working on a diagram that will tell him if anyone in this house is afraid.

It takes him 12 minutes to finish. There's a lot of detail work to do.

 

Permalink

No one in the house is afraid unless it's Ponder.

Permalink

He's a little afraid, but the diagram tells him no one else is and he relaxes. 

He bites his lip and goes to the kitchen and casts spells on their knives to make them always be sharp.

Permalink

They have two entire kitchen knives, which are not very sharp, either of which features may impact casting time.

Permalink

He will cast a spell to sharpen them first. This is a problem people have had before.

The sharpening spell is quick. The one to keep them sharp permanently will take several minutes. 

Permalink

The noises are less violent and more obviously sex noises at this point.

Permalink

He looks around the kitchen for anything else he can do. He doesn't know what most of the things are.

He carefully opens a cupboard. 

Permalink

Cups and bowls, charmingly mismatched.

Permalink

He'll make the nicest looking ones unbreakable. This spell also takes a while. He definitely won't be finishing the entire cabinet.

Permalink

And before he's done with bowl number three, out come Jackson and Brian, fully dressed.

Permalink

He turns red again. 

"Sorry," he says, "I didn't know."
