"Ok, Chill," said JayMack. "Let's go get the captain if he's really going to help us find the 7 relic pieces of eight to save the world. Or is it that w me have to find 7 pieces of eight in order to free the captain who has pieces of eight that will save Middle Earth. Or... Crap. Whatever. Let's just get going." What he didn't say was that he'd grabbed the power cross bow from that strange group dream. He would be holding it on the captain the whole time. Resurrection, huh? He'd show the bastard some resurrection.

JayMack pulled the red lever and the Talcum expanded to bigger-on-the-inside dimensions.

Lanko cried tears of joy at the song, as did many others. The ghost cleared invisible ones. Even Justin cried while sleeping.

But Lanko couldn't eat the roast when he discovered it contained Sansa's tears. Who could be so inhuman as to mistreat a redhead???
His stomach roared at hunger, but he solved it eating Mr.Whiskers again. It was nice having Henry around to keep summoning the cat over and over. This was probably the fourth time, so Lanko now had to be careful and only the cat when absolutely needed.

"Windbreaker Island is in the direction of the twilight," said Ackbar, revealing his shared love for Harlequin romances with Jmack.

"Then off we go!"
Slow and steady wins the race.

'IT'S A BOOK CLUB!' bellowed Admiral Ackbar. And Ackbar, Lanko and JMack disappeared off to discuss the new romance they were all reading. "Love under the seven seas."

Meanwhile all the others stopped off for fish and chips at a local fish and chips shop called The Codfather.

Justin awoke as soon as the ship touched down. He jumped on to his feet, singing at the top of his lungs, "I dreamed a dream, a dreamy dream dream! Ooooooh lord I dreeeeeeamed a drea..." He looked around. Seeing no one, he hit a high C in his high voice. He was worried it would come out flat, but he hit it with style, using vibrato to perfectly color the note.
After clearing his throat, he slipped back into the shadows, trailing behind the group. He couldn't help but wonder how he had fallen into such a deep sleep...

"You come into my house," boomed the voice as the saloon doors swung out, and out ran Chill, Scarlet, Arthur, Lexi, Larabeth, and Henry without Conan. "On the day of my daughter's wedding, no less!"

"Run! To the ship!" Henry called out from the front. "He's a crazy trout! He's trying to peddle his Star Trek fanfic on us with the meal!"

These excessive exclamation marks pushed them faster to the heel of the Millenium Talcum, but that didn't start the ship any faster. JayMack rubbed his eyes at the wheel, hoping that the smell he smelt was the take out they had promised him, but alas, it was just that damn cat curled in the corner, hanging on by a thread of luck. He looked out the window and bolted upright. "What the?"

"Please, come back. I promise you these manuscripts have only been rejected by Tor and Orbit! There's still hope." The trout-man waddled with his gut closer to the crew, but they were making good time, Arthur the last one in this round.

"C'mon, I don't want to shoot this fellow," Doc said at the bottom of the ramp, his revolver drawn. The whole situation had gathered a crowd of onlookers. And if there were onlookers, why, one of them would make their way back to Elfy, and it was only time till he found out his book of necromancy and star map had been stolen. "C'mon!"

"Guess that's our cue to join in the plot, Mr. Jiggles," Lexi said.  She whipped out a mandolin and started playing, the screechy tones mixing horribly with jigglypuff's terrible pitch.

Clunk.  Clunk.  Plop!

When the tune was finished, a pile of bodies lay for miles around.  Lexi and Mr. Jiggles hauled the ramp up.  (Doc sure was freakin' heavy!)

Then...they waited.

"Well, that was stupid.  How're we supposed to get outta here when we can't drive a ship?"

"Jiggly-jigglypuff!" Mr. Jiggles fumed.

"No, no time for graffiti.  We've gotta get everyone outta here and fast! ...Well, actually, they should be asleep for a while, so maybe not that fast.  Oh!  I know!"

She whipped out a flask filled with rainbow liquid from her pouch.  "This should do it."  Popping off the cork, she tilted the flask.  A small drop fell to the ship, then flash! they (everyone and the ship, that is) appeared on the top of a rainbow.

"Okay, now you can graffiti their faces."

"Jiggly-jiggly-jigglypuff!"  Mr. Jiggles got right to work.

"I hope we didn't leave anyone behind.  Hey!  I wonder if we follow this rainbow will it lead to a pot of gold?"

"Jigglypuff!"

(Did someone say PFUDOR?)

Arthur woke up as Mr. Jiggles was working on his face. He shooed the thing away. "What happened?" he asked, getting up. Lexi didn't answer; her hearing aid was still off. "Oh, yes, the music happened." Arthur turned around and caught a glimpse of the rainbow outside the Talcum. His face turned pale. "Oh, no, no, noooo!!! My new form! I can not yet fully control it!"

The priest's robes took on a new colour: Rainbow-stripes. The tattoos on Arthur's skin started to crack, bright light shining through. And then, with a puff of smoke, Arthur was gone, and a small, pink, fluffy unicorn had taken his place, happily dancing on the rainbow-coloured robes.

Justin woke up... Again. Must be something with that damn god-awful music. Stretching his neck and shaing his head, he sat up and glanced around the room.
The first thing he saw was King Jaymack passed out on his back in the middle of the floor. Normally Justin's eyes would've kept traveling to the next person, but something about his face had changed. Something... Aha! Someone had been drawing on his forehead. In the middle of a lightning bolt shaped scar, someone had written, THE BOY WHO NEVER LIVED.
Justin couldn't help it. He burst into laughter. It was rediculous. Everyone had something drawn on their face. Everyone around the room had... The laughter died in his throat. No. No no no no no. I won't do it! Before he could catch his reflection in a window, he ran over to the unicorn and buried his head in it's fur. "Good Charlie. Protect me. Be a good unicorn."

Henry woke up. He watched Conan who had something scribbled on his head: a large manly moustache. Remarkable. It looked so real.
He checked the mirror for his own drawings. A large monocle had been painted on his right eye. Hmmm. Something was off here.
He took the painted monocle from his head, polished it with his sleeve and put it back on.
Ah much better. Now he could see what was off: this monocle didn't have any golden vest chain!
He tossed the ink-monocle aside in disdain and sported his monocle of all-sight once more.
Now he could see a unicorn in the middle of the ship.
(Henry didn't believe in unicorns, so he needed a magical monocle to see them)

"No, Charlie!" Doc stirred in his sleep, a tattooed snake, well, snaking across his upper lip like a mustache. He cuddled up to Murdock (who had largely been forgotten up to this point) but kept tossing and turning still. "No, Charlie! You don't have to walk the poop deck!"

Scarlet walked gingerly toward her friend. "What's his problem?" Lexi asked. She had a bucket of water ready.

"Oh nothing. He just gets this way. Don't say anything, though."

Lexi nodded as Ackbar strolled in carrying his signature cereal in each pinscir. "Hope you're hungry!"

Tomas the ghost, having woken from one of the most blessedly dreamless sleeps he'd experienced recently, actually woke up slightly less cranky than he generally was. Which was to say, crankier than a hibernating bear disturbed by a hapless caver, but less cranky than a hill of fire ants which had been stepped on. All in all, an improvement in mood!

He first checked on Larabeth, who was still snoring softly, then zipped to the edge of the rainbow and gazed down in what might be genuine surprise. Finally, noting the various graffiti spread across the faces of the others, he grinned at Jigglypuff and gave the Pokemon a big thumbs up.

This troupe of crazies was proving more interesting by the moment, and this Windbreaker Island ... something about the name tugged at his missing memories. It felt familiar, and vaguely ... frightening? Or stinky. It was hard to tell with his memories so vague.

No matter. He'd go along for now, bide his time, and wait for the next chance to screw with someone.

That time came soon enough. The ship danced a jolt which woke up half the crew, the half that wasn't already awake, have you. The few that were already awake, though, blurted obscenities like "fluff!" and "Rick James!". Some ran to the windows to see what the problem was.

Leon ran to the cockpit. "Oh my, what kind of trickery is this?"

Thomas the ghost looked a bit awestruck. Was this the kind of adventure he was hoping for? Why, this wasn't by his hands surely? He looked at them just to make sure. Yep, all seven still there. Wait -- "How is this?" Leon kept on, twirling his magic stick. "Crabs cannot fall from the sky!"

JayMack tugged on the N64 controllers harder. "They can, and they do in the Objectionist Ocean."

From miles all around them they saw only blue waters. But far closer came Ackbar's cousins, riding the metal tin of the Millenium Talcum. Leon gulped.

As Leon passed the unicorn, Arthur's shapeshift was dispelled. There was a rather uncomfortable moment when Justin pulled his head away from the naked priest's "flank".

"Erm..." Justin muttered, slowly backing away.

"Yes, indeed," Arthur replied. He quickly put on his robes, uneasy-red in colour. Justin set a record time in vanishing into the shadows.

Meanwhile at the book club ...

"Clearly Bella the lusty maiden, should choose the pirate captain Jacob!" bellowed Ackbar.
"No, no, no!" retorted Jaymack. "The Pirate Captain will break her heart. She is better off with Edward, the reliable naval officer."
"But the captain has lusty loins," added Lanko to the debate. "Always choose a mate with lusty loins."

Lanko left the debate furious when he discovered Jmack and Ackbar tricked him into the book club by using Photoshop to make Bella a redhead on the cover of the book.

He planned vengeance. He burned half of Jmack's Pokemon album and left a trail of ashes that led directly to Ackbar's quarters.

Shortly after, his two redheads joined him in the casino of the ship, offering him drinks and food while he played poker and made half the crew own him large quantities of money.

In that moment, Chill passed through and Lanko had a diabolical idea to further his vengeance for being tricked to read the entire Twilight Trilogy.

"Jmack is so damn cool, he has a lightsaber, symbol of the Chosen One! He is the one who's gonna save the world, right, girls?"

"Yes, Lanko, if you are saying Jmack is so cool, then he is!" Larabeth and Scarlett started giggling and blushing.

Chill didn't like that. So he went to Jmack's quarter and saw the lightsaber charging on the desk. He grabbed it and left quickly, being very careful in avoiding all the other crew members and alarms.

Meanwhile, with Jmack and Ackbar still debating Twilight and Chill playing real life Metal Gear Solid, no one noticed the ship was now flying by itself and both Chill and Jmack forgot to turn on automatic pilot.

Slow and steady wins the race.
