Emy was overjoyed to find her favorite leaf swing had survived the dragon fire. And she was even happier when her friend Linwe joined her in it, even though she had to endure a lecture from the elven elder about entering dragon caves and taking dragon gold which she promised to never do again. And she was given a pretty new shiny to help her fill her pouch.

A dragon, two fae and shiny things

[5:53] 2ks Gears looks round his cave immediately noticing some of his gold has gone
[5:54] Emyly Beaumont pats her pouch and smiles: she has just found some new shiny thing
[5:55] 2ks Gears thinks its time the Dragon started collecting from the creatures of Erebos, either gold or limbs, he doesn’t really care which
[5:55] Emyly Beaumont giggles: that ole dragon will never catch me
[5:57] 2ks Gears with a powerful downward thrust of his wings he takes to the skies, building his fire knowing he will release it at someone or something
[5:58] Emyly Beaumont flies off to count the bees in the hive (easily distracted)
[6:06] 2ks Gears flies round looking to find a victim
[6:06] Emyly Beaumont is hungry and finds some berry bushes by the fae tree
[6:08] 2ks Gears sniffs the air, picking up a familiar scent
[6:09] 2ks Gears spies a small figure sitting against the tree
[6:09] Emyly Beaumont nods off to sleep
[6:09] Jordon McGillivary lifts his wings and spreads them going in search of Emy
[6:10] 2ks Gears knows by the time he finds her she will be a pile of ash
[6:10] 2ks Gears wonders if his fire will hurt the wings of the fae as she rests against the wood
[6:10] Jordon McGillivary: the silly fae is probably stuffing herself somewhere
[6:10] Emyly Beaumont wakes when she feels unnaturally worn and notices the ancient one
{6:11] Ancient One (2ks Gears) roars down at the fae " do you have my gold ?"
[6:12] Jordon McGillivary: Emy WAKE UP
[6:12] Emyly Beaumont looks at the ancient one and grins
[6:12] Emyly Beaumont says: but I found it just lying around...
[6:12] Jordon McGillivary: wants to cower behind the tree
[6:12] Jordon McGillivary: Emy! get on your feet and apologize
[6:12] Jordon McGillivary: NOW!
[6:12] Ancient One (2ks Gears) flames the air round her to let her feel the heat of a Dragon
[6:13] Emyly Beaumont puts her hands on her hips: well it was just lying there. obviously no one wanted it
[6:13] Jordon McGillivary reaches over and shakes her
[6:13] Emyly Beaumont sweats a bit and realizes she is in trouble this time
[6:13] Jordon McGillivary: don't be foolish. a dragon always wants his gold
[6:13] Emyly Beaumont looks at jordon for answers: you mean... give it back?
[6:14] Ancient One (2ks Gears) says 'you have a choice return my gold , doubled in value or feel the heat of a Dragon on your back'
[6:14] Jordon McGillivary: yes!!! that is exactly what I mean. before he toasts us
[6:14] Ancient One (2ks Gears) says 'it is good advice .......................'
6:14] Emyly Beaumont ponders this statement for a while and comes to the realization that it is better to be alive to feel the spring than to carry pretty shinies
[6:15] Jordon McGillivary: I'm sure she didn't mean it 2k, well she did, but she is just a foolish fae who likes pretty shiny things
[6:15] Emyly Beaumont digs deep in her pouch and extracts a shiny gold crown
[6:15] Jordon McGillivary: my wings are getting hot, aren't yours?
[6:15] Ancient One (2ks Gears) says 'No one touches a Dragons hoard without being punished'
[6:15] Emyly Beaumont sniffs and hands the crown to the ancient one
[6:16] Emyly Beaumont cries: but it is so pretty and shiny with all those white pearls on it
[6:16] Jordon McGillivary: you'd better grovel my girl
[6:17] Emyly Beaumont sniffs and wipes her nose on her arm: grovel?
[6:17] Jordon McGillivary: yes! grovel and do it well
[6:17] Jordon McGillivary: didn't you hear what he said about punishment
[6:17] Emyly Beaumont looks at jordon and says: you are mean
[6:18] Jordon McGillivary: looks at her incredulously..."mean? I am realistic"
[6:18] Emyly Beaumont says: I do nott want to grovel. maybe he will be happy just if I give it back. then he can go away
[6:19] Jordon McGillivary: hah! only if he takes pity on you
[6:19] Emyly Beaumont giggles: I would not taste very good anyway and I would only be a mouthful
[6:22] Ancient One (2ks Gears) snatches his gold back from from the fae " where is my profit"
[6:22] Jordon McGillivary looks to Emy
[6:22] Emyly Beaumont squeals: your profit? it was just lying around
[6:22] Jordon McGillivary: what else can you give him?
[6:22] Jordon McGillivary: think fast
[6:23] Emyly Beaumont hugs her pouch tightly against her small body and quivers
[6:23] Emyly Beaumont says to the Ancient One: I gave it back
[6:23] Ancient One (2ks Gears) fills the air with fire , letting it go over her head " i want double back what you took"
[6:23] Jordon McGillivary: ....Emmmmy....
[6:24] Emyly Beaumont shakes as she feels the blast form a stream of fire
[6:24] Jordon McGillivary backs away from the flame
[6:24] Jordon McGillivary: don't be foolish, give him a pretty bauble
[6:24] Emyly Beaumont quickly reaches into her pouch and pulls out a shiny diamond ring
[6:24] Emyly Beaumont offers it to the dragon: here, I don’t need this anymore
[6:24] Jordon McGillivary: Ancient One, she did not realize what she was doing
[6:25] Ancient One (2ks Gears) glares down at the two fae , one being guilty , the other being guilty by association " I want gold and i want gold now" he roars loudly into the air
[6:26] Jordon McGillivary inspects his pouch
[6:26] Emyly Beaumont trembles and looks in her pouch again: I only have a shiny rock that linwe gave me
[6:27] Jordon McGillivary knocks aside a travel bar, jerky, a ribbon from a lady...
[6:27] Emyly Beaumont reaches into the pouch and pulls out a piece of gold ore. Not knowing what it is, she holds it out and says: look! it sparkles in the sunlight!
[6:27] Jordon McGillivary and pulls out one lone gold coin
[6:27] Ancient One (2ks Gears) says 'you mean you had a shiney rock linwe gave you " holds out his claws to take the shiney as he watches the male look for his payment"'
[6:27] Jordon McGillivary sighs
[6:28] Jordon McGillivary and hands the gold piece to the angry dragon
[6:28] Emyly Beaumont starts to cry because she has no big shiny things left in her pouch
[6:28] Jordon McGillivary: here you are sir
[6:28] Jordon McGillivary: I hope this will ease your ire
[6:28] Ancient One (2ks Gears) takes both shineys, places them in his mouth for safe keeping , " if you ever go into my cave again i will keep you there "
[6:29] Emyly Beaumont nods and sniffles
[6:29] Emyly Beaumont whispers to jordon: do you think he will go away now?
[6:30] Jordon McGillivary whispers "I do not know, but I hope for your sake he does"
[6:30] Ancient One (2ks Gears) knowing their cave is about here somewhere he sets fire to the surroundings and a few trees to remind them of his power " i will be watching you two very closely from now on "
[6:31] Jordon McGillivary nods and rolls his eyes. see what you caused Emy?
[6:31] Emyly Beaumont looks at the Ancient One and vows to stay out of his sight for a bit
[6:31] Emyly Beaumont watches as her swing goes up in flames
[6:32] Jordon McGillivary bows to the ancient one
[6:32] Ancient One (2ks Gears) beats his powerful wings downwards as he takes to the skies his anger flowing from him as he feels the new shinies under his tongue
[6:32] Jordon McGillivary: you're lucky it wasn't your wings
[6:32] Emyly Beaumont wonders where she will get enough new shinies to fill her pouch
[6:38] Jordon McGillivary: I did not appreciate the need to bribe him to leave me unharmed
[6:39] Emyly Beaumont hangs her head and looks up at jordon, saying in a very small voice: I am sorry
[6:39] Emyly Beaumont wonders again where she can collect some new shinies
[6:40] Jordon McGillivary looks at her "oh well, apology accepted"

La Performance

I have been rehearsing twice a week with La Performance now and we have fully blocked out 2 of the four dances I am in. Both of the numbers are well choreographed and each is different: one is disco and the other is a love song. This last one will be danced to a live performance by an artist with a lovely voice. I like this number best I think except for the individual platforms we have to dance on. I invariably fall off my stage at the same point every time. I must be doing the turn at the wrong time...

Click here for a video of our latest rehearsal of "If You Can't Give Me Love." I am the one in the orange top and denim skirt. Zap Zhong, who took the video, also took the picture that is now in my profile and in the Symmetry In Motion II ID. Isn't his work great?

La Performance
has its own website where you can read about our upcoming performance and all of us. I haven't figured out how to add a picture or bio to my "page" yet, but when I do, I will be just as beautiful as the other girls even if I don't have much to say about my accomplishments.
