Autumn Bonfire

Submitted by Martyna_Zmuir on September 27, 2011 at 3:56 PM CDT

BonfireYou’re standing quietly at the bank, staring off into space. Suddenly, you feel a cannon ball hit your knees. You stagger, but maintain your balance and look down. Big green eyes look up at you and a squeaky goblin voice says, “Arp! Cidur and I learns how to setting things on fire!”

Join Zox Greatsnapper and Cidur Klomp for an Autumn Bonfire on Friday, September 30th, at 8 p.m. CDT, at the Skara Brae Fairgrounds (47° 1′S, 36° 0′W).

Fire Fish Weigh-In
Bring your heaviest fire fish, caught between September 27th and 30th. It must not be mounted. If it does not win, you may have it back.

Bessie Bingo
Which square will be Bessie’s last? See the glorious final moments of a speeding cow.

Autumn Archery
Oak Division: 100.1-120 skill
Acorn Division: 0-100 skill

Wild Goose Chase
Slay the killer geese and take their delicious gooseberry jam. Whoever brings back the most will be proclaimed Harvest King or Harvest Queen!

Oddly-Shaped Squash Showcase
Search your garden or the local fields and bring us the strangest squash, gourd, melon, carrot, or onion of this year’s crop. Spin a yarn about why it’s so funny-looking. If you can’t find anything, stop by the farmer in Skara or Britain and ask if he’s got anything to tickle your fancy.

An Alley in Britain

The knife was sharp, and it danced. Magnus tried to follow the blade, but when he blinked, he opened his eyes to the blade stopped just an inch away. He slowly moved his head back, while the young man holding the knife simply frowned.

“Don’t waste time on fear. Respond.” His brother started making the knife dance again. “Oh, and don’t blink.” The flashes started again, pausing close to various vital spots, never touching. “This part is mostly show. Ignore it. Watch for the change.”

Magnus noticed the change in grip this time, though he suspected his brother was slowing it down. He brought his hand up against the arm holding the knife, blocking the slash, smiling at his victory.

Lukas shook his head, “Still too slow.”

Magnus felt the cut then, a thin line of pain along his palm, fresh blood already spreading. He curled his hand into a fist, trying to stop the bleeding. Lukas tossed a strip of cloth to his brother. As Magnus bandaged his hand, he asked why Lukas had cut him.
