Song of Jewels 49Episode 49: "PokeTheater! Wendy as Joanna! Brock as Falco Dolan!" (part 2)Song of Jewels 49 by LightningTopaz
Some tense music filled the air as the lights came up on Brock, Wendy, and an actress playing Officer Jenny in a conference room. "We have tried to interview the deceased's wife, but she is very clearly distraught by all of this." the actress began.
"Understandably so--no one deserves to die like this." Wendy mused.
"Here is what we know about the deceased's background and some observations from the scene of the crime..." the actress went on as she consulted some prop papers. "The deceased was known to always carry a briefcase with him at all times, but one was not found at the crime scene. We believe it may have been washed away, although other options have not yet been ruled out."
"Even if one were found at the scene, what are some potential things he may have carried inside?" Brock asked. "Jewelry, perhaps?"
"What makes you think that, Falco?" Wendy asked.
The actress' eyes lit up. "You may be onto some

The Knight of the StickStory 1: The Knight of the StickThe Knight of the Stick by LightningTopaz
"In a certain village lived a woman named Cecily." Brock begins as he sets the harp aside. "She had a son named Jack, who was one of the most foolish lads that ever was born. This made his mother very unhappy, and all day long she would rant and rave because of this great misfortune. Whether she asked him nicely, or yelled at him till she was blue in the face, the boy would not lift a finger to do any form of work."
Laughter goes up at Misty pantomiming ranting and raving at Ash, who is sprawled on the stage as Jack. "At last, after a thousand bonks on the head, and saying "I tell you this" and "I told you that" day after day after day, she got him to go into the forest for wood, saying..."
"Come now, it is time for us to have dinner." Misty coaxes as she unceremoniously drags Ash towards stage left. "so go find some firewood, and don't forget yourself on the way, but come back as quick as you can."
"So off Jack went, hanging his head as if he was going
All About KideKide are a magical type of crystal found all across the islands of Asahi. While no one knows where they actually came from, it is a common belief that they were a gift from Kandra, and only her chosen ones, the iksas, can inflate them and unleash the magical power inside.All About Kide by LightningTopaz
An uninflated kide is useless, but when it is inflated, not only is it pleasing to look at, but it also creates a beneficial effect--be this one household, a town, or even a whole island--this is why they are also blown during religious services
There are two types of kide--fashe, which are made to burst on purpose, and kate, which behave like a normal balloon. Fashe's powers are unleashed when they burst, and kate when it is completely inflated. However, since it often takes so long to inflate a kide, when they are used in battle, they are used as defensive magic that is prepared well in advance, or powerful offensive magic that takes a long time to cast, in contrast to more common
