Akyooterat, God of Squirrels, Part 1 3/4: More Real Housewives of Ravila

Posted by Arconus Arkright on December 21, 2016 at 10:50am

When it came to ranking her fellow Temporal League agents, Lady Gwendolyn Canby-Cross had no qualms about putting Dr. Jing Qian in the tippy top percentile. Qian, a fairly recent recruit, had brains for days, skills for miles and seemed utterly fearless… if often a bit overconfident. Knowing of her teammate’s enthusiastic praise for her judgment and her abilities, Jing Qian vowed to never, ever tell Gwendolyn of how easily she was waylaid…

A letter from Junie

Dear New Babbagers:

I find myself compelled to take a few minutes away from my mission to save the Great Blue Snapping Air Kraken (the singular breed of its species known for, among other things, being blue AND snapping, and which are now quite endangered) to send my fond wishes to all of you this Christmas season. Although, it’s true, I was gripped by a paroxysm of wanderlust that led me to leave New Babbage, heading first to Falun…

As toy boys go, Mr. Edison "Sonny" Tsai ranked rather high in Dr. Jing Qian’s estimation. He was far too Westernized to ever please her very traditional family back home (who strained to find ways to tolerate the doctor’s progressive life choices) but he was more than suitable in all other respects: a man of some means, a decent conversationalist, rakishly handsome and conveniently stupid. However, in spite of his normally guileless nature,…

Loki’s negotiation

“Oh dear,” Itsy chortled as she lowered herself from the wall to greet her new guests.  She bore herself confidently as she looked at her visitors.  “Two of you have wandered directly into the spiders nest?  Perhaps you were eager to join these others?”  Her rear leg jostled the bundle very tenderly.  She didn’t want to disturb the little ones nesting within the formerly brash boy trapped inside.

As brilliant-but-psychotically-murderous villains go, Mr. Vehement Marrow ranked rather low in Audrey’s estimation. While his monomaniacal obsession with tapping the power of the ley lines that converged in New Babbage was, to a degree, rather endearing, Miss Kilcannon could plainly see that his penchant for over-complicated schemes–involving so many precariously assembled parts they were all but predestined to collapse in failure — meant…

An Itsy Bitsy Problem – Wright into the nest

Posted by Beryl Strifeclaw on December 3, 2016 at 1:47pm

John Wright followed their nervous guide through the dense island vegetation, though the ex-Pinkerton considered the fellow superfluous.  The nest had been visible from afar and Wright had a honed sense of direction.   But even Loki, obliviously pounding through the underbrush announcing their presence as a one manned marching band, could have found their destination.  The thick canopy above could not hide airships…
