    Domhnall folds his arms and tilts his head at the drawing.

    "Mmhm." Annie starts to trace out a rough outline of Domhnall. "I don't have your colour. I need the big crayon box." This standard size crayon box is a disgrace. She looks at him some more and pulls out a couple more crayons.

    Reelshka glances over at Domhnall.

    "How about we show Domhnall the daycare so you can get the big crayon box, Annie? He should see it if he's going to be helping around here."

    Domhnall doesn’t actually know what a crayon is, so he assumes it just be the things she’s holding.

    Annie looks at her picture, then at both of them. Big crayon box... "Okay." She decides and puts the crayons she had out away. She stands, stoops over, and manages to get the thick stack of paper back into her arms.

    Reelshka glances down at the thick sheaf of paper in Annie's hands. She doesn't actually need all this paper, so she's just greedy. Well, no use scolding her further right now.

    "You really do like drawing, don't you, Annie?" Turning back to Domhnall, she says: "We ended up with a pretty busy daycare. People leave their children here to be looked after. This place always had plenty of children, we just made it more official later. So anyone who can keep an eye on a handful of curious and mobile children will be of great help. Many of them will probably want to get on your back, too."

    Domhnall nods.
    ”Fair ‘nuff. They’re free to ask. But they better hang on if they want a ride. I can’t see from back there if they fall off. Not if I want to see where I’m goin’.” he jokes, looking about the cabin.

    "Will you?" Sophie's tone is as calm as ever, but the question is suddenly poignant. It's aimed to cut through Lucy's justifications like a sharp knife through paper and make her confront uncomfortable facts. "You cannot control when such circumstances will happen. A moment of great stress and fear might happen regardless of what you do. What you can control if whether or not you'll be ready for it."

    "We should probably have a grown-up watching them in any event," Reelshka says as they enter the main building of the daycare. The former Sapling Cabin is now a communal play area. "Go ahead and get more crayons, Annie. And put that paper back. It's good that you want to show your mom the camp. It's pretty and she might not be able to see it otherwise."

    "I'm eighteen, Ma'am. Plenty grown up." Domhnall pouts, in exactly the way most teenagers do when they insist that they're plenty grown up.

    "Now, nothing is going to help you as much as getting some light, correct?"
    GLoG Infirmary

    "Correct." Mintaka says, pressing a tab on her bracelet. Hardly a breath afterward and a suit of deep silver wraps around her body. The suit is loose at first, but quickly tightens to her skin before a series of half a dozen jet nozzles sprout from the backs of her legs and arms, with a larger pair at her shoulder blades. All seem capable of being manipulated, and provided there is a proper environment for such, should provide flight or at least control in a Zero-G atmosphere. She holds her palm up during the last moment of her suit's deployment, allowing a raygun straight out of an 80's Pulp magazine to fall into her hand so she can put it away at her waist. Presumably the collar around her neck would allow her to deploy a helmet of some sort, but for the moment she lets it be. The shining law enforcement symbol is right in front for all to see.

    All in all, it's a horrible suit for protection considering it doesn't even cover all of her chest, but it certainly attracts attention and seems to have some sort of utility. With some minor tweaking, the long sleeves shrink to short ones and she gives a final nod. "Alright, I think I can head on out now."

    Annie goes to the cupboard where the art supplies are stored. She puts her insufficient box of crayons and the stack of papers on the floor and opens it up. "They're not here!" She complains loudly.

    Oh, but they're not the only ones here. Two young girls are chattering to each other in the corner. Two of that group of four tiefling girls. Reelshka might know the name of the four quadruplets, but chances are she doesn't know which two these are...

    The girls each have a stick they've stripped of bark and are colouring on with... crayons! Annie marches over to them. Yes, they have the big box! "That's mine." She interjects before grabbing the box.

    "Hey stop!" One of the girls tries to grab at the box. "Give it back!" The other girl grabs Annie's arm.

    Reelshka blinks and proceeds to clear things up.

    "I meant another grownup, to watch them while they're on your back- oh dear." She sees and hears the fight that's about to break out. She strides towards the three children, intent on nipping it in the bud. "There's no need to fight, girls," she says, without raising her voice but with the parental tone that makes it clear she means business. "There's plenty of crayons for everyone here."

    Is that really what her uniform looks like? Goodness. Well, she is from another world. Maybe it's more...something in their fashion.
    Anchor steps over to Mintaka and reaches out to help guide the alien officer towards the door. Given what we've seen so far, Mintaka would probably hurt herself trying to walk too soon after all that time spent still.
    "Good. This should be a lot better than the skylight. Now, are you familiar at all with this world you've ended up on?" It can be a surprise to people, and it sounds like she's been tied up by Leap this whole time.

    The kids all freeze. All three of them know that classic mom tone very well. Orlane let's go and sits back down, but Rosabel isn't so ready to back down. "She's taking our crayons!"

    "I need the big box. There's only one!" As far as Annie knows at least. She's only seen one.

    "Annie, you can just take the crayons you need from the box and them put them back," Reelshka says in a slow, patient but firm tone. Annie is the one being greedy here, so she has to start with her. "There's no need to take the whole box from Rosabel and Orlane."

    "You didn't think Riverside would be dangerous when you went there, did you?" Sophie is still gentle but relentless. "You can't lock yourself up in a tower with Spako and avoid anything bad ever happening again, Lucy. You can't do this to yourself, Sylvess, Spako or any of the others."

    Anyone looking for Reelshka will find her there, having just put her twins down in their beds. Balthuk seems to be dozing off, but Maltrika appears to be in no hurry to sleep, instead intently turning around a cloth ball that jingles every time she moves it.

    Ruth knocks the door, the fact that she waits to be let in possibly alerting Reelshka to the fact that it's her. She's her usual self, no wings in sight. "Hello, Reelshka, it has been a while. Is that new life I sense?"

    Ruth beams at the confirmation that there are indeed children, twins even! She hurries inside so she can look at the little ones, making little appreciative cooing sounds as she watches the baby play with the ball of cloth. "What are their names?"

    The woblin looks up at Ruth curiously, not letting go of her ball. Upon closer inspection, her eyes are very much like those of a goblin. Her ears are also more like furry goblin ears than the kind of wolf-ears Tuskfang has.

    "She's named Maltrika, and her brother is Balthuk. We decided to use goblin first names this time. They can still earn Wolfen ones when they grow up, if they want to."

    The Yew

    On a moonless, cloudy night, the yew shivers and shakes; it looks like it's being buffeted by hurricane-force winds, or possibly bouncing in an earthquake... Yet the night is still, and the ground, stable. Still, it writhes, the roots ripping free from the ground and dragging the trunk across the ground to the point where the fence around the tree is closest. The roots wrap around the fence posts and pull, ripping the fence out of the ground before the tree slowly and awkwardly drags itself away, towards the highest point of the camp. It sticks to the dirt, avoiding paved areas and the cabins. It'll take the old yew quite a while to reach the top of its chosen hill, and there it plunges its roots into the ground and grows still, ceasing its laborious movement.

    When dawn arrives, the tree is one of the first things to catch the sun's rays, and a girl falls out of the trunk. She's naked, unconscious, and about nineteen. She's got skin the colour of the yew's bark, dark green hair and her eyes- were she awake- would be the red of yew berries. It's been a while, but Baccata has recovered from her brief stint of death, or mostly.

    Potential New Person

    Somebody new approaches the camp, headed towards the main lodge. She heard that's where she ought to go, right?

    She's blond. Long blond hair. Mismatched eyes. Sword in a sheath. Tall, for a human woman. Like, imagine the average human male height? That's her height. She looks like she works out, but only for fun. She also looks like she's walked a long way to get here (guess she missed the train, I suppose). And she's...20 or so years old? And there's a pamphlet in her hand, too? It's talking about GLoG, but is obviously pretty old because it doesn't even mention this campground.

    The woman, Melissa, heads into the lodge looking for someone.

    Sophie is hurrying towards the yew when Baccata emerges from it. Even though Ruth had assured her Baccata wasn't dead, the Solar still felt extremely guilty over essentially leading the dryad to her death. She needs to make sure she's okay.
