Here she is. She starts singing - an enchanting sound, beautiful and moving in a way the mere notes composing it shouldn't seem to allow. It echoes and gets compounded in a way sound shouldn't be, spreading much farther than normal.

"...wow," the guy breathes, taking a step forward. "What's that -?"

Permalink

"She's Song. She loves to sing more than anything else."

If he decides to wander through the Maze as far as his rope will take him, does he find anyone?

Permalink

Yeah, some people are drawn by the song. Even the first guy seems to not have anything to say anymore in the face of that.

Permalink

And if he leads everyone he's collected with the music out of the Maze, and then tries to capture it again...?

Permalink

This time it goes!

Permalink

The Maze card returns to its power confined, and he signs his name on it.

If he leaves them alone the group of people will sort themselves out, right? He tries meditating on the Through.

Permalink

That depends; is the Song still out?

Permalink

It is. Scott is too busy meditating to fix that.

Permalink

So no, people will mostly just stay there transfixed by the Card.

The Through... is that-a-way.

Permalink

In which case he can stop meditating, and return the Song to her card, and run thataway.

Permalink

People are extremely confused! Some of them call after him.

Permalink

"Glad you enjoyed the show!" shouts obviously-a-stage-magician.

 

Permalink

People are very confused by this, or at least confused for long enough that he'll manage to get away.

The Through is inside that 15-story apartment building.

Permalink

That does seem like a place for the Through to be.

Into the apartment building he goes.

Permalink

It's... somewhat hectic. The Through has been through (heh) every apartment and left a mess. It is currently in floor 11.

Permalink

Any reasonably thick objects lying around?

Permalink

The apartment building contains an assortment of object typical of apartment buildings. Like floors, walls, plants and other decorative pieces, mail, furniture, and people.

Permalink

He's already shot subtlety to Hell. He runs until he finds the room with the Through currently in action.

Permalink

It is between floors, making short work of a refrigerator.

Permalink

Dramatic action pose! Twirling, twirling, twirling...

"Move, trap the Through by surrounding it with food!"

Permalink

Awww yisssss moving shit! It starts merrily gathering food and bringing it towards an initially unsuspecting Through.

It tries to slip through before enough food has been gathered.

Permalink

Can he just close the door? Refrigerator doors are thick, right?

Permalink

The doors are not thick enough to stop a free Through. A whole refrigerator, though...

Permalink

And for his next trick...

Move, do the thing?

Permalink

Thing is done! Through is trapped!
