|Volume 1: a Foolish Faerietale||
[as we started a new notebook here, we did a nice re-cap and character bios in the front for ourselves so it would look pretty. I have added this for comedy value and for those who can never remember who's who and what's going on. Plus also, as this is the part of the story where many of the 'real' people start actually affecting the plot rather than just existing.]
THE PREMISE; A long time ago (the nineties in fact), Red-the-easily-distracted befriended the newly crowned Queen of Faerie, Cabbage. Together they plotted to make Buffy, Red's rival in love, fall for a Yak Farmer so that Red could get near Barry, who she had a crush on. Later, a terrible magical accident caused Cabbage to fall in love with an elf called Flynn, who had Donkey ears. Thus it came to pass that presently, three very odd children were born to these ill-fated couples, and it must have been destiny that one day their paths would cross
RED; A professional authoress of immense intellect, razor wit, massive determination and- loose morals. Mother of Beansprout, she is currently an asylum seeker in Faerie and applying for citizenship and full faerie status. Can't be trusted with men or alcohol and is very dappy.
CABBAGE QUEEN OF FAERIE; The dessert-loving queen of the other realm and mother of Cablim, Flibbage and Bicaflamimiflagimoflimimbage. Hates most men on principal and prefers to be referred to as 'The aloof unattainable Ice-Queen'. Grand master of the science of Generics. Drinks a lot.
BUFFY THE ;most supremely evil and destructive force in the universe, and obsessed with killing Red, Beansprout, and anyone connected with them including her own son. She wants to kill them on principal though, she no longer cares about the Yak Farmer incident, plus Beansprout wrecked her shoes.
BARRY; Evil, but not really all that threatening, Beansprout's father is the secret leader of the shady-yet-snappily-dressed NGSPIB (Non-Gender-Specific Persons In Black). Has to be kept out of human form to prevent trouble, currently an excruciatingly cute bunny rabbit.
ODDBALL A.K.A 'AGENT O'; No-one really knows who this Nepalese double agent/arcane priestess is working for as ultimately she seems to serve her own best interests at any time. Has no children (except perhaps the people in her head)
FLYNN Flynn isn't around anymore because I realised just how sad I really am, imaginary love interest= borderline insanity.
BEANSPROUT JONES; The most important player in the ongoing struggle between Cabbage, Barry and Buffy for control of Faerie & Earth. She's hyper-intelligent, cynical and has a flair for engineering. Oh, and she also has a violent streak and a whacking great big sword (The Slayskull Blade).
FLIBBAGE OF FAERIE; A seven-foot, frizzy haired, winged faerie Princess with the uncanny ability to think of plans and words that rhyme (an invaluable tool to magic users). Met Beansprout after being rescued from a bottle in a river as small containers are her one weakness (every faerie has one, Cabbage is allergic to reality).
YAKKY; Beansprout's lycanthropic boyfriend, son of Buffy and Oz the werewolf. Dislikes Buffy as much as everyone else, but keeps trying to get her to change, a cause of many arguments. Doesn't get on particularly well with J who he sees as some kind of rival for his place as token bloke.
J; J is really a spare wheel, existing only for comedy effect, tension or to boost up the numbers. He and Flibbage make an excellent comedy duo as sidekicks, but there is really nothing going on there. As a former member of the NGSPIB he knows all about guns, cars and gadgets, so can be quite useful sometimes. (Looks nothing like Will Smith of course)
SITUATION AT PRESENT

still don't understand," said Kagome as she pedalled the bike through
the city streets, "why we're looking for Beansprout. It's not as
if we like her."
reckoned she was at least in the right universe now. After she'd retraced
her steps to Sunnydale, a tip-off from a local demon had told her that
two people fitting her descriptions of Yakky and Flibbage had been there,
but had disappeared abruptly last full moon. Using Faerie technology she'd
re-wired to search for intertextual disturbances, she'd traced their path
through to the RowlingsVerse, and after another wrong turn into a world
where trumped up hacker nerds fought A.I with impossible Kung-fu, she'd
returned and found evidence of a faery spell accompanied by more intertextual
disturbance. She'd followed it to this place, the D&D11th unspoken
edition fantasy misogynistic daydream.
my Love! She has totally vanished!" whined William for the millionth
