Ponder accidently kidnaps Juliet
Permalink

Ponder is excited and so is not being nearly careful enough.

So, when he does the ritual that is supposed to transport the lab mouse into the circle, the spell grabs someone else instead.

She's running and running, with the full moon above her. And though she's alone, it's still feels like the best thing in the world.

But another strange, alien sensation rolls over her and suddenly --

Permalink

-- she is somewhere else entirely.

Permalink

There's a frantic looking man standing in front of her. He looks slightly singed. 

Permalink

Is he otherwise alright? She looks him over, keeping a careful distance.

She doesn't recognize him at all...

Permalink

He has minor burns, but nothing that won't heal on its own.

"I'm so sorry," he says, still sounding frantic.

"Are you...? Can you understand me? It shouldn't have pulled an actual wolf! I think, I don't know!"

Permalink

Juliet sits down, very purposefully and nods her head once.

She could heal him quickly... but he also summoned her here. Maybe accidentally? Doesn't feel like he's lying...

But then again, witches really don't like her. He could be lying with the aid of magic.

"Okay, that's good. Or, er, maybe not. It probably would've been better if it grabbed a wolf. I'm really sorry about this! I should be able to send you home, I just need to figure out how you got here."

Permalink

And where is here exactly? She looks around pointedly. She definitely not in New Orleans anymore. Doesn't smell like Mystic Falls either.

Permalink

"You're, er, in the Unseen University, in Ankh-Morpork. I could tell the Archchancellor you're here. He might be able to get you home faster," he sounds doubtful.

Permalink

....these words mean nothing to her.

She can't express this confusion the way she is.

Permalink

So she changes back.

She is very naked. She ignores that.

"Ankh-Morpork means nothing to me."

Permalink

"Are you from uberwald? If you are, it'd be faster just to go back the normal way. We could pay for the carriage."

Permalink

"No. I was in New Orleans. I don't recognise that name. Are we in South Africa? I can't quite pinpoint your accent."

Permalink

"I don't know what either of those places are."

Permalink

"Mystic Falls? New York, California, Texas? The United States of America?"

Permalink

"Er, I've never heard of those either."

Permalink

She shifts, a little concerned, and covers herself up a little.

"What sort of magic were you using?"

Permalink

"Wizarding magic?"

Permalink

"That. Doesn't sound like any magic that I know of. We have witchcraft. Sacrificial magic?"

Permalink

"There are witches? But they don't do this kind of magic."

Permalink

"If you're not a witch... you're a wizard? I've never heard of actual non fictional wizards. I'm not very old, but. My sire would definitely have told me about them."

Permalink

"We're not a secret? But you must be from very far away if you haven't heard of Ankh-Morpork."

Permalink

"How much of a non secret are you?"

Permalink

"I didn't know there was anyone who hadn't heard of wizards."

Permalink

"Okay. That's. Are we on Earth? Third planet in the Solar system? Has a moon called Luna?"
