The problem with knocking Creampuff in the direction of Kierrenne is that the little thing doesn't understand and reacts pretty much like a feral cat getting thrown into some stranger's arms.

"No! Don't hurt her! I'm sorry..." begins Kierenne, until she realizes that her brother is only pushing Creampuff her way. She sheaths (or drops) her sword and tries to catch Creampuff and subdue her without hurting her too much.

[Switch to Strength: Amber for hand-to-hand combat. Focus on pinning her, or a knock-out choke hold, etc. There's always danger that different anatomies will react poorly to that kind of thing, but you can't make an omlette without breaking some fluffies.]

"Awww. That's so cute. She's trying to bite me." calls Kierenne to her brother. She allows Creampuff to sink her teeth into the rubber of the suit on her off forearm, then uses that as a means to get easier control of her cute little white fluffy head. She spins her new pet around, to be able to get her arms into a strangle hold, and starts to choke her to sleep. "Go ahead and cut me with your claws, precious. It's okay. Mommy doesn't mind. Mommy forgives you."

All the other Morlocks run away into the darkness, while Creampuff eventually loses consiousness.

Kieran starts to give chase, but stops, not wanting to be separated from Kierenne. His eyes are wide and wild with the adrenaline rush. He adjusts the wetsuit in an area that has become a bit too tight in all the excitement.

Turning to Kierenne, he sees her gushing and loving all over the unconscious Creampuff. He smiles behind the mask, his trump voice warm See love, she's not hurt, she didn't get killed, and she's all yours.

Moving to her side, Just keep an eye on her, Grandfather gave us that puppy once remember, and the lil flonqer bit my nose off while I was sleeping.

Once Creampuff is out, Kierenne strokes her soft white hair. "See? They left. That means they give you to me, Creampuff. So no more resisting, okay?"

"Okay, let's move this stairway behind the waterfall. I can't wait to get her back home." She picks up her new precious, and then bringing Kieran with her enters the cave where the other preciouses ran. Once in a bit, she turns around, and alters shadow on the way back so that the room outside the tunnel has the same waterfall, but the stairway moved behind the water. "I think I want to come back here, Kieran. These things are subterranean like us. And they're so cute. Once we fix the distortion, this place could be relaxing." she says, as she leaves the tunnel and inspects the results of her shadow shifting. Hope makes her expect it to work, but the word "relaxing" came out a bit strained as she suspected the worst would be waiting for her inspection.

"That bastard Prospero's magicks are still here, if the shadow is still wonky after this, let's just make for where there is less distortion, then try again. "

This is another things he must pay for.

There is of course no cave behind the now-meager waterfall. Kierrenne has just entered a different opening all together. She can shift the Shadows but it still doesn't quite go the way she wants it. A sharp turn becomes a gradual one. It will turn right instead of left. Now, if she's paying attention, she'll find the distortion effects are decreasing -- so they are going in the correct "direction" as it were.

Eventually the cave opens up into a series of large caverns, ones that include bridges and lamps and balconies. Flicker along the cave walls indicate they are near or in the midst of diamonds or some other shiny objects/substance.

Across the nearest bridge both twins see a troupe of short, squat individuals with beards. They look and walk as if they're all muscle. These individuals wear well-made clothing that includes broad belts and some chain mail. One of them is saying something about the "fairy mines" and a cousin of his seemed to like it well enough, but he himself wasn't tempted. The others nod and agree.

"Yes love." he replies absentmindedly, and the weapon melts/reforms a bracer again on his right wrist.

Remember your etiquette lessons Kieran, Grandfather drilled this into you more then enough times.

Moving towards the pack of little people, showing no visible weapons, he confidently calls out "Greetings travelers. What Shadow is this?"

He starts to looking each member up and down without trying to be subtle about it. Looking for which is the leader and which is packing the largest bundle that may or may not include food.

The short, bearded men (well, the beards--its a good guess) stop and turn to these two rather extraordinary individuals before them. Then they look at each other. And back at the twins.

"Espacees, am I right?" says the one who was speaking before. Without waiting for an answer, he makes a welcoming gesture as if to say 'follow us' (there's a perfectly sturdy bridge nearby, only about forty feet long). "Heard it all before," he continues. "Magistrates from Onyx, blah blah blah, the Prince Regent's agents making themselves obnoxious--as usual." The rest of the party sigh and nod at this last. "You look tired -- come on and have a nice meal. We've got plenty. Oh! You're not vegetarians are you?"

"Vegetarians? We are not animals."

They have nobility, are the real ones or just poor mockeries in Shadow.

"You speak poorly of the nobles, what is the cause of this?"

Be wary love, the commoners who speak poorly of their royalty, are no better then the animals in the field.

"Nobles? Well, by all accounts the Prince Regent is a bit of work, but lots of the actual nobility are nice enough. Most of the time. Some of the royal officials -- they get a bit zealous, if you know what I mean." He pauses. "Don't you want to come where its warm? Get some hot food? Some milk or something for your..." He gives Creampuff a good stare. "I don't know what that is, but...well, we're friendly! If you want to join us for supper, you've very welcome." He proceeds to join his fellows.

"Do they have any cha... oh bother." shouts the girl. She approaches her brother, "Do they have any chains? Creampuff might wake, and I don't want to keep knocking her out. It can't be good for the poor dear."

"Have them take us to this food, Kieran. I'm hungry. And find out what all this nonsense about a Prince is. I'm sure we don't want to be taken for political prisoners in some provincial shadow. They might take it in their heads to try to return us to some local goaler for a reward or something. And I do not want to get mixed up in local politics. Not after what happened last time."

"And don't forget the chains!"

With a note of command he demands "The lady needs chains. Now. My sister and I require food. Now."

Grandfather's lessons on etiquette. When dealing with the peons, command don't ask. Slay them if they balk. They breed like rabbits anyway.

"You will tell us about the puppet nobles of this Shadow. No more stalling, no quibbling, and the answers had best be quick."

Violence is always so much easier and so much more fulfilling though, right love?

"They seem to not care one bit about Creampuff. Nor do they seem to care about us being hungry."

Eyeing Creampuff for signs of waking up, "Do you think Creampuff likes the taste of midget?"

The girl looks at her pet. "Probably" she says, dismissively. "She was eating her friend back there. She'd probably eat anything."

"Are they ignoring us? Kieran, I think they're ignoring us. That isn't acceptable."

"No, no my dear. It is not."

Holding his arms out to take Creampuff if she wishes to handle this one herself, "Do you want to correct them about their rudeness? They have food, that bearded one claimed they did at least. And I'm sure we can find chain or something for dear Creampuff's collar and leash."
