"Can we get to Neverland from here?" We all head out of the Common room after a three movie session, making it just a scant half hour before midnight. "With a door?"
"No, we have to portal to London and then get to Neverland." Willow hands me their notes as we walk, and I pocket them safely away from Pearl. If she knew this might cause me any ill she may not want it to happen. "We can fly in or take a doorway at the top of Big Ben." Pearl is riding Willow instead of me and it's adorable. She's shrunk and is in their leaves. Willow seems to adore it and now I wonder if they would like a clan of Pixies of their own.
"Oh..." Billie excitement ticks up. "We get to see London?"
"For a few, yep." I smile a little. "Have got to do a proper tour at some point, show Pearl what has changed from her parents story until now as well as what hasn't." I feel some nerves from Pearl, and I give her a look. She shuts those feelings down hard as soon as I look.
"Do you want to fly Uncle?" She blurts before I can ask her what's wrong, giving me a look that I know means leave it.
"Well I prefer to fly, yes." We stop before my door. "But you two are free to take the door." I wave at them.
"Can your broom even hold two?" Billie's eyebrow rises a bit. "It was a once seat from what I saw."
"That is a good point; I really should add a second seat if necessary." I tilt my head. "I wonder how I could work..."
"Uncle." Pearl chuckles.
"Sorry, yes you two should take the door." Billie frowns a little. "I mean... there is a way you can fly with me..."
"Give her the mushroom." The excitement coming from Pearl would produce pixie dust if she was able. "She will love it!"
"Alright." I reach into my pocket and find my lone mushroom. "We will have to get more from your father while we are there." I hand it to Billie. "Chomp on it once we get to London, I doubt you will like to see London small."
"Okay." She pockets it with a smile.
"Alright." I look to Willow. "See you in a half hour." I give them a hug, allowing Pearl to transfer to me.
"Be careful." They whisper into my ear.
"I will try." I whisper back, stepping back. "Okay then." I rub my hands together. "To London." I walk up to my door and slide my fingers over it. I cut out the talking, and simply impart my adoring feelings directly like she does. This actually takes a little longer than usual, and Pearl actually yanks my ear to get me to focus. "Sorry." I clear my throat. "London, Big Ben, my dear." Her leaves start to fall back into the white light and in a moment we find ourselves inside Big Ben.
Magicans have been using this place as a nexus point nearly since it was built so the whole clock is actually run by magic, leaving the rest of the space to be used as a way station to different realms. It hasn't been really active since Peter Pan was written, or at least it looks that way from the amount of dust.
"Whoa..." Billie mutters, looking around. "This place is..." She lets it drop.
"My father thinks that the writer of Peter Pan erased the memories of anyone who knew of this place." Pearl climbs down my coat and gets into the pocket with the last enlarging mushroom. "To keep magicians from being captured by Neverland." She munches on it and pops to full form just in front of me.
"Not a bad plan, but..." With a muttered few words and a clap of my hands the whole space comes alive. The candles light, the dust disappears, and a fire place roars to life. "Hello." I call out and get a big huge groan of thank you from the tower. "Welcome." I smile and Pearl rolls her eyes. "Don't mind her; she doesn't like how I interact with you beautiful entities." More groans of happiness at being talked to and having people using his doors again. "Oh well I am glad we can be of service my dear." A groan which I think is a chuckle.
"Uncle..." Pearl nudges me.
"Fine." I sigh. "Would you be so kind as to show us the door to..." We hear a click behind us, and upon turning around we see a simple dark wood door. "Ah, alright then." I motion to Pearl. "You head through and warn your Father so he doesn't try to shoot me down again." She snorts.
"Maybe I will have him give you a scare." She half hovers, half skips to the door. "Hang on tight Billie. His enchantments are powerful, but they are a bit...." She makes a wobbly hand motion. "When you're tiny."
"Oh, okay." She nods, suddnely a little nervous.
"Don't do anything ambitious, Uncle." She glares at me a little and I cross my heart. "See you in a moment!" And she pushes through the door, with only a breif glimpse of the Jolly Rodger's deck before it slams shut again.
"Alright." I look to Billie.
"Just us now." She nods, looking down at the mushroom. "How do I..."
"Jump and eat it at the same time. That way I can catch you." She gives me a look. "It's easier than you falling to the ground. You shrink from the feet up."
"Oh, that's a little dangerous." She dances a little to get her psyche herself up. "Okay." She nods. "One, two..." And on three she jumps, munching down on the mushroom in perfect time.
It's a bit odd to see someone other than Pearl shrink, especially someone who can really jump and is already taller. But I catch her just fine and raise her close to my face. "Well?" She checks her self out and then looks up at me with an astounded expression. "It's a trip and a half huh?"
"Yeah." Her voice is several levels higher than it was, and she grabs her neck. "My voice?" She looks up at me. "Pearl's doesn't do this!"
"Pearl is a Pixie; her body is designed to do this. Yours is not." I slowly and gingerly place her in Pearl's pocket. "Now hold tight." I bolt for the wall and just before I'd hit it, Big Ben slides the glass aside and I jump right out. I scream out with a huge grin as I pull my broom out, tucking it under me in a practiced move.
I'm laughing as Billie screams bloody murder despite us being safe and level. "What happened to not being ambitious!?" I chuckle some more. "I could have fallen out!"
"No, you really couldn't." I get my goggles on. "That pocket is designed for tiny forms. Pearl was just being overly cautious." I speed off around Big Ben a few times, sending bursts of happy thanks to him. "On to Neverland!" I climb high and set my direction for the second star to the right. "Now doing it this way isn't like porting as we've done before!" I call out. "There will just be a..." I get that tingle and then pop! We are in Neverland. "Never mind!" I laugh as the beauty of this place hits me again.
"Fuck!" Billie calls out as she pokes her head out. I can feel her overwhelming awe at this place as I slow down, letting the local birds fly a spiral around us.
"Hello lovelies." I reach out and a few pass just by me so that I can gently touch their wings. "Did you miss me?" I conjure up bits of fish and toss them into the air, watching as not a one drops more than a foot before being caught by one of these techno colored birds.
"What are they?" Billie is straining to stay in the pocket while looking around.
"No idea." I shrug. "Not a lot of things have names in Neverland." One of the massive birds flies under us. "Though that one I call Bess." I glide lower so I can rub her back. "Hello you great big beauty!" I smile as I hear her almost pure once I get the spot just behind her head. "Who's a pretty bird?" She lets out a harmonic caw that vibrates the entirety of me and Billie. "Yes you."
"You're a dork." Billie snorts. "A huge, fucking dork."
"Yes, yes I am." I smile a little and fly away from Bess, who follows me. "That's Thieves Hold." I point towards the dock being suspended by the clouds. "It's where the Pirates dock and send their goods to other realms, or other ships send goods back. Most pirates in all the realms are actually Neverlanders." I head out over the main island. "Captain Hook usually keeps close but I as I can't see him here, he's maybe gone out by the mermaid islands. They have trade with them sometimes."
Billie keeps quite and just stares out in wonder at it all as I alternate from flying high, and flying in the breaks in the canopy, or a river or two. Feeling this place through her is just as enthralling as it was when I first came here.
"There it is!" I point out as some clouds break. "The Jolly Rodger!" I call out and see a few deck hands already waving at me. " Yo-Ho, me hearties!" They all call up at me with a mixture of laughs and groans. "Permission to land Captain!" I call out to Hook as I see him standing by the wheel, Pearl at his side. She's got her head in her hand and is just shaking it at my ridiculousness."
"Permission granted you giant fool!" He half laughs and come in right next to him. "Ever the showman, aren't you!?" He has his hands on his hips as I disembark from my brook, kicking it up and having it land in my pocket.
"You're one to talk, is that a new feather in you hat?" I point up at it and he gives me a fuck you look.
"It might be." We jsut kind of glare at each other for a moment before we each break into laughs. "Come here you bastard!" And we clash together in one big hug. "How are you!?"
"I am..."
"Can't. Breath." Billie gets out. "Squishing. Me." We dash back apart.
"Fuck, sorry Billie." I gently take her out as she is gasping. "Yeah, Hook you got a grow mushroom on hand for our new friend?"
"Yes, but I am running low." He picks one out of his pocket and flips it like a coin to me. "Maybe you can go on the run this time and see your mothers for the first time."
"Yeah, yeah." I mutter and hand the mushroom to Billie. "Just munch on it and..." She does and grows right then and there. In a pop I've got my hand cupping her face and she's just swallowing. "jump." I finsih.
"Oh." We just stand there for a moment right up until Pearl clears her throat. "Yeah." She turns to Pearl and out of my hand, which I kind of rub with my thumb just as she yells..."HE JUMPED OUT OF BIG BEN!"
"UNCLE!" She yanks me down by my coat and grasps my beard.
"OW!" She grips harder. "HEY!"
"What did I tell you!? She could have been hurt!" I can see Hook trying not to laugh off to the side.
"She was perfectly safe!" It's a bit hard to talk when you're caught like this. "You are overly cautious!"
"UNCLE!" She yanks and I yowl a bit in pain. "Apologize!" She points at Billie who is just starring wide eyed at all of this.
"I'm sorry!" I look to her. "Wont do it again!" Pearl lets go and I rub my chin.
"You better not, not without her permission." She copies her father's hands on the waist stance. "Now, the rules!"
