Legend has it, that when young wizards use their magic recklessly the death shark approaches and eats the young wizards in one colossal bite. Here is my version of this legend.
Young wizards wishing to test their powers often bend the laws of magic, and propel themselves off the edge of the world with the help of magic rugs. These foolhardy wizards travel farther and farther away from the safety of land and into the unknown. As the land vanishes into darkness behind them, they heard a creaking of bones and a draft of ice cold air rushes by them. Somewhere in the distance there is movement, a glimpse here, a flutter there, and then all of a sudden a skeleton appears in front of the young wizards. It is the skeleton of a gigantic shark! The young wizards, frightened by the appearance of this supernatural horror, try to out run the shark, they enchant the rugs to move faster, but the shark is still following them. The wizards make the rugs go even faster, but the shark still pursues them. The young wizards make the rugs fly so fast through the air they have a hard time keeping up with them. Then all of a sudden a wizard falls off one of the rugs. The other wizards stop and try to help the stranded one, but the death shark is much closer than they are. The wizard sees the shark getting closer and tries to move away but he is completely stuck, he cannot move, he cannot cast a spell to fight the shark, all he can do is await his impending doom. The shark swims through the air and with a leap the young wizard has been engulfed by his jaws. The wizards stare in silence as the shark swims off through the unknown. Then one of them speaks, “If ever I make it out of here alive, I will never toy with the laws of magic again.” All of the wizards vowed as well to not break the laws of magic ever again.
And so every time a wizard bends the laws of magic by flying away from the worlds of the spiral, they invite a visit from the death shark.
Today while I was killing undead to get my "Undead Slayer" badge, my friend Jessica DasiyFountain, says I should port to her.
So I do, and lo and behold!
I found myself on a rug bridge leading farther and farther away from the death house.
Tatiana DuskSong made this awesome ride.
That's really the name for it, a ride, because you couldn't just walk back.
No, you were on this little moving platform that went farther and farther away from the house, and if you stopped for to long...
you get stuck!
It was AMAZING!
We all got stuck.
Then we started telling ghost stories about the legendary
Man, I wish I knew how to do something like that.
Edited to add: I learned that this is actually a game called airplane. Oh. I've tried to do it all by myself, and according to my friend who ported to me, I'm doing it wrong. Ah well. I still think it's awesome.
I was messing around last night when I figured out I could make slideshows with Windows Movie Maker. So I decided to try it out. (There isn't any sound. I don't know why, but I didn't feel like adding any in.)
Can you guess what movie I was inspired by? ;)
I love this and will be making more slideshows in the future! Woohoo! ~Heather
