|Chapter 5 - Plans and
After looping through time on Easter Island and creating 887 statues honoring the fallen in combat while the rest of the Vanir escaped to Midgard, the group returns to the plains to continue on the journey. The plan is to return the Vanir to their home world of Vanaheimr.
[SpaceDog] "I know Sidrat better then you might think. She gave you something when she kissed you and the kiss was a distraction for everyone to watch while she was putting something in one of your many pockets, didn't she?"
[SpaceDog] "Whatever it is was meant for you, but in time, you may use it to contact her when you need help. Do me a favor and don't look at it, only feel it and tell me what you think it might be."
[ Jeff ] "It's soft and squishy like her boobs but also seems to be hard when I touch it..."
[SpaceDog] "Like a nipple? Wait... don't answer that. Please put it someplace where Istanna won't look for it. Okay, it's time to get back to work and do not tell anyone about what you have. Now tell me, what do you think of my dad as your tutor?"
[ Jeff ] "He is still testing me and my abilities as his apprentice. Since I don't know who may parents were, Not sure about a lot of things I should have learned by now. Was Njord strict when you were young?"
[SpaceDog] "He was never around; always in his lab working on stuff he learned from his dad, Ymir, some traveling alien who came to Vanaheimr looking for more of his kind before he disappeared. But while Ymir was here, he left so many unique and interesting creatures that now reside in the third realm on Alfheim."
[Njord] "And that is where most of the alien powers, like magic and the ability to control time and space came from. However, Ymir left clues for us to discover in his ancient writings and things he left behind."
[SpaceDog] "Jeff, does that remind you of something? Istanna, Bok moth se'kac to-ke Volaree-chan..."
[Istanna] "You did not just call me that..."
[Istanna] "Boke muth kac'see te-ke Volaree-dom"
[SpaceDog] "Okay you two... what's up?"
[Chepi & Zenko] "The mistresses thanks you!"
[SpaceDog] "Tell Gertrude and the un-named one 'Dōmo arigatōgozaimashita.' and I now know who sent you two to us and why. Wait, just tell Gertrude. I will tell the un-named one myself. Sidrat, entangle here now!"
[SpaceDog] "Have you done what I dreamed about and wished for last night?"
[SpaceDog] "What is your power level right now?"
[Sidrat] "Polaris Aa and Ab are both in my grasp."
[SpaceDog] "Phase one now!"
[SpaceDog] "Istanna my love, please come here and share my thoughts for 1/4 moment and then tell me if you approve or not."
[Sidrat] "My Commander and your Star Lord has a proposal that you must all agree to before it is carried out. There will be a telepathic vote and if anyone of you do not approve of what SpaceDog, Istanna and myself offer, you may ask to be taken off the vote and/or propose a resolution after hearing what SpaceDog has to say."
[SpaceDog] "Two nights ago, I had a dream. It was a waking dream so real it was broadcast across space and time to my A.I., Sidrat, who holds the power over most of the infinity stones that created the known universe. But we only need a fraction of the power of Polaris, the twin stars known as the North star in order to bring our people home to a new world. We all left Vanaheimr in ruins. On the normal time line, Odin is dead and Ragnarok has already happened. The remaining Aesir are looking for a new home since Asgard was destroyed. Chances are, they will come to Earth because Thor is now their King and he likes Midgard. If he comes here, he may find us and we don't want that to happen again, not yet anyway. So my proposal is, we sterilize this planet of all Vanir technology, leaving Earth with the clues here and go back to Vanaheimr with little chance of them finding us."
[Istanna] "After hearing his thoughts, I now understand his dream. It's a dream for all of you to invasion. The humans on Earth are wicked by nature and fight each other for sport, survival, territory, power and wealth. When the population explodes, it gets worse and wars break out. They have tried to kill the gods we sent them in the past. Buddha, Jesus, Mohammed, Zeus, and many more have tried to be their gods to shape the human race, teach them, loved them, nurtured them, but only a small portion of humans took them seriously. We may still send representatives to this planet when they need it the most in the future. It may be up to us as to when that will happen."
[SpaceDog] "As a Star Lord, I have the power to change the future, but first, I would like to take our people home. That will start with you, my immediate relatives. Is there is anyone here who wishes to live on Earth till the end of days? If so, you may stay here. Are there any questions?"
[ Jeff ] "Why am I hare? Why am I included in your immediate family? I know not who my parents were and..."
[Sidrat] "Why else would I hug and kiss you child. Jeff my son, it's because I adopted you on Easter Island with SpaceDog and Istanna's approval. You are family."
[SpaceDog] "Sidrat announce phase 2 to all the Vanir population on this planet now, or imprint it into those sleeping as a waking dream they will remembered."
[Sidrat] "Yes commander SpaceDog. With your permission Lady Istanna, I will proceed."
[Istanna] "Permission not needed Mum, but granted as you requested."
[Sidrat telepathically] 'Greetings from the Vanaheimr guardians, Star Lord SpaceDog and Lady Istanna. I am Sidrat, their eyes, ears, hearts, souls and voice, speaking to all Vanir on their behalf. The Aesir-Vanir war is over. In the next few days, those on the southern region of Midgard will be transported along with any belongings, pets and personal items they wish to take from Midgard, and bring to Vanaheimr. The city of Barra Hold with it's surrounding villages and your prior homesteads are being rebuilt as I speak. We will then sterilize Midgard of all Vanir technology leaving only the buildings where you lived. Each and every one of you in the south will be transported at sunset in 2 days so you can finish any projects you are working on and pack your belongings. I will contact you shortly before you are entangled to Vanaheimr. Instead of using the Rainbow Bridge Bi-Frost that brought you here, we will use Quantum Entanglement because it's faster and much more reliable then the older magic. Anyone living in the northern region of Midgard will be transported in 4 days at sunset. We wish you all an exciting and exceptional journey home and ask you to prepare your mind, body and spirit for the journey home. From all the guardians, Thank you.'
[SpaceDog] "That was an excellent message Sidrat. I like the title guardians. Now begin phase 2."
[Sidrat] "Scanning of Midgard is complete. Locations of all 2351 Vanir, their pets, livestock and possessions is confirmed with one exception. The one exception is the renegade and she is many places at the same time and can't be tracked. Barra Hold and the surrounding villages will take approximately 666 moments or 16 arns and 39 milliarns to restore with the fractal power stream from Polaris. Will there be anything else?"
[Istanna] "Be a mother and take your son, Jeff, for a long walk and get to know one another without using telepathy or technology. His eyes have been glued to you ever since you told him he was adopted."
[Njord] "I know we earlier had talked about sending some Vanir to Atlantis and England. That will still happen, but think getting all the Vanir off Midgard takes priority. My little side trip to the 3rd century can wait. Gertrude, Genni and Jessi, have you completed the power plant prints on the planes, or is there anything you need to change?"
[Gertrude] "I think we can complete everything by mid-day. I've redone some of the mathematics along with the drawings that point to the non-working power plants. The humans will take several thousand years to get to that point in their evolution to understand the equations left here. Genni, Jessi, can we do it by noon?"
[Genni & Jessi] "It can and will be done. The underground infrared tracers are all in place. All we need to do are complete the remaining 7 lines and rulers."
[SpaceDog] "That is what I want to hear. Okay, we have 661 moments before Vanaheimr will be better then new along with 4 new power plants and 40 receivers in place. During that time, I would like fathers help to change the Skithblathnir into an ARK to take the critters and veggies' in the holding pens to Fornax SantÚ. Chepi and Zenko, will you sing them a lullaby for me?"
[SpaceDog whispers] "My Goddess I love you!"
[Njord muttering] "I wonder who will figure out what it is first."
[Sidrat telepathically] 'I figured it out from the vibrations it's transmitting but not telling anyone until they wake up on... just don't anger them.'
[SpaceDog] "Got any sleeping rooms in that thing?"
[Njord] "Through the door, turn left and think whatever you want or like for you two to be sleeping on. When are we going to move the critters and fauna?"
[SpaceDog] "1 arn should be plenty of time for her to complete her dream. Zenko and Chepi will wake us. Will you need any help moving the critters?"
[Njord] "Nope. I've been using entanglement since before you were born. I've got this. You look like that lullaby is finally getting to you too... Go sleep."
[Njord] "No way!"
[Sidrat telepathically] 'Way! Don't wake them!'
[Njord] "Them? You mean there is more then one?"
[Sidrat telepathically] 'Twins! Lucky you...'
[ Buffi ] "Interesting! You don't know what it is, do you?"
[ Ruffi ] "We better not tell him."
[Njord] "Have you named your spirit guides yet?"
[ Buffi ] "Named them?"
[ Ruffi ] "I was wondering about why they don't talk and where they came from."
[Njord] "Spirit guides are usually given to you to help with both difficult magic or decisions. Was it not obvious that they were a gift to help you? I think I know who sent them and where they came from, but for them to help, you have got to give them names before they run off like they just did."
[ Ruffi ] "Jewel, come here."
[ Ruffi ] "Do you prefer Buffi as your master?"
[ Jewel ] "Thank you for the name mistress. We are twins, like you two, so we serve you both. We came from the same place as Zenko and Chepi did who serve mistress Istanna and master SpaceDog. May I ask why the name Jewel?"
[ Buffi ] "She loves to collect anything bright and shiny. Rascal, come forward."
[ Rascal ] "Ruffi has been dreaming of that particular gem for over a cycle. Accept this as a token of my loyalty to you both. It's hard for me to part with, but it's what you need.."
[ Buffi ] "Dōmo arigatōgozaimashita Rascal. What so small could be so heavy?"
[ Rascal ] "Erementarubōru. They all weigh the same but some are big and some very small. The smaller the marble balls are, the heavier the element. I would have put one made from the same dying sun that Thor's hammer was made from, but you would not be able to hold it. Every marble is made from a different element and this 'bag for holding' is much bigger on the inside so it can contain a lot. When you close the bag tightly it becomes weightless. I did not include any elements that are dangerous or volatile when around any of the others. You will at some point in the near future need one or three. And, there are also other thing's in there that you will need in the future."
[Njord] "You just said, 'that Thor's hammer was made from'. Don't you mean 'that Thor's hammer is made of'?
[ Jewel ] "Thor's hammer, Mj÷lnir, was decimated by Hela just before Ragnarok. We left Alfheim just as Ragnarok started."
[Njord] "So we missed Ragnarok and Asgard is gone, but, I think SpaceDog, Istanna and Sidrat have something up their sleeves. That would explain the sudden trip and the fractal power he and Sidrat are using from Polaris. Hmmm... never mind."
[Jewel & Rascal] "Master, Mistress and Mum have not revealed their entire plan nor are we to guess what it is until the time comes."
[Njord] "Thinking about those three, Sidrat, or should I call her Mum, should be returning with my apprentice soon. Wait one milliarn. I need to do this."
[Njord] "Task accomplished. All those animal pairs and fauna are now ready to be moved to Fornax SantÚ. Let's get going. Son, I will leave the travel time and location in your capable hands and then I want to visit an old foxy friend."
[SpaceDog & Njord] "Foxy Roxy's Ramen!!!"
[Njord] "ARK, I relinquish command as your captain and give you to Commander Star Lord SpaceDog. Commander, you now have the helm. Here is the Helm of Awe, you may or may not need it."
[SpaceDog] "ARK, show me Fornax planet system 20,202 light cycles due south of Midgard. Jeff, Istanna, Ruffi, Buffi and air spirit guides, you are going to love this place. We are about to enter the 10th realm."
[Istanna] "Seems like 500 cycles since I was there last."
[SpaceDog] "Set course for the third planet, Fornax SantÚ, approximately one hour before Ragnarok began and stay 25 clicks over the wildlife refuge prison post NOW."
[SpaceDog] "What you see below is both a prison and a refuge for wildlife I've collected over the past 15,000 cycles. Currently there nobody in the prison but I have only one candidate in mind. That is the one Vanir that can lie and be in many places at the same time. Her name is Diablo."
[Istanna] "When and where will you release the animals?"
[ Jeff ] "Are we 20,202 light cycles from Midgard? And how can we travel that far forward in time in such a short period?"
[Sidrat] "Son, I could go through the math but your head would spin out of control. The Skithblathnir is a quasi-dimensional device having no one place in time or space and yet is in all times and all places. It can be programmed to move any place in any form in any time. That my dear Jeff is the short explanation."
[ Jeff ] "Wow! I never thought I would ever be doing anything like this. What's next?"
[Buffi & Ruffi] "Wow! Does mom know we are here or does she think we are just skipping out on another wild adventure?"
[Sidrat] "I told Rosemary and Luke to not expect you home for din and you would be with Jeff and myself."
[Istanna] "Interesting how you figured out what to say to them."
[Sidrat] "Did you know you and SpaceDog both talk in your sleep and he also broadcasts his dreams telepathically."
[SpaceDog] "I what? Since when?"
[Chepi & Zenko] "Since before you verbalized your love for Istanna and ...."
[Jewel & Rascal] "Don't say it!"
[SpaceDog] "Let's finish this mission. I'm getting hungry thinking about Foxy special stew."
[Njord] "Got me drooling already. Let's do this, okay?"
[SpaceDog] "ARK, land at the base of the power plant. We will then entangle the plants and animal couples to places that feel like home and grow undisturbed for at least 5 cycles. We can come back in the QETS in one or 2 cycles to check on their progress."
[Istanna] "Sounds like a great plan. Mum, would you like to handle the fauna? I think your unlimited memory has enough information to make the right choices."
Foxy Roxy's Ramen Surprise
[SpaceDog] "ARK, take us to New Kyoto on Fornax Prime and appear as a Red phone box that's bigger on the inside in the square a block down the street of Foxy Roxy Ramen."
[Njord] "First, be careful of your steps because the cobblestone streets are tricky. Nobody will notice your strange cloths and whatever you do, don't touch the ears even if they look soft and fuzzy. If anyone talks to you, be polite as you can or make hand gestures as if you don't know what they are saying. SpaceDog, Istanna and myself have been here before but it's been a long time since Istanna was here and she didn't look like she does now. Are we ready? Don't worry about any expenses because I have gold."
[SpaceDog & Njord] "Foxy Roxy's Ramen and Sweet Shop?"
[Maids & Butlers] "Welcome home Masters and Mistresses!"
[a capella choire]
You belong in a Zoo,
With the rest of us animals,
And your family too...
[Buffi, Chepi, Istanna, Jewel, Njord, Sidrat, SpaceDog, Ruffi, Zenko] "HAPPY BIRTHDAY JEFF!!!"
[ Jeff ] "I must say, that was the first time in my life, anybody remembered my birthday, and these are happy tears on a very happy birthday!"
[Sidrat] "As your mother, I will do my utmost to raise you to the best of my abilities. I looked through the archives and you are truly a mystery, surrounded by a paradox caught in an enigma. Even if that title was given to Buffi once upon a time. There is no record of who your parents were because someone removed all records of you being born except for one. I found record of you being retrieved from an Atlantean time capsule on this day, 14 cycles ago with a small note. It was the paradox code, 25 or 6 2 4, but written as 25.624. I was searching the Atlantean archives when the commander called me here across space and time. I think it may be a chapter and page number but have not completed my search. The white box is from me."
[ Jeff ] "Thank you, thank you, thank you Mum."
[ Buffi ] "I have not known you for very long, but feel that we have a lot to teach each other. This was recently given to me as part of a set, but for some odd reason, feel that you will need it in the near future."
[Istanna] "I've read your mind and know what you wanted the most, so it was I who suggested to Mum to adopt you. However, that is not the only gift I wish to give you. When you open the long gray box you will find something I originally made for a companion out of my dragon blood and a Unicorns tear but she was too weak to handle it and returned it in kind. As a magician or sorcerer, it is very powerful. So learn from your master how to use it for doing good."
[ Jeff ] "Thank you Lady Istanna. I sense that you do not know the true power of this wand. Does the name Wind Walker mean anything to you?"
[SpaceDog] "Wind Walker is the mother of Shadowfax and I will talk to you in private about unicorns. So open the silver box and receive a Falknut key to an Atlantean air ship I have parked in the QETS."
[ Jeff ] "What's the QETS?"
[SpaceDog] "It's a quantum entanglement time ship, almost as powerful as the Skithblathnir. Father Time built it and used it as a stepping stone to cross time when he commandeered the second Bi-Frost to bring the Vanir to Midgard during the Aesir-Vanir war. Sidrat uses it and when she is not here and she control it along with the Minds Eye A.I."
[Sidrat] "Excuse me? The QETS is now 15,000 times more powerful then the Skithblathnir and gaining more power since it has control of a black hole and 2 stars, thank you very much. But we have more presents for Jeff, so let's continue."
[ Jeff ] "How and where did you get this? Better yet, don't tell me till you are good and ready."
[ Ruffi ] "All I can say is, you will get better use out of it then I ever will and I found it in a pile of things sent to be recycled. I love going through others trash. Cool, don't you think?"
[Njord] "So you saved the best for last. What do you think is in the big box."
[ Jeff ] "Trouble... I sense it's living but not mature. That is what you picked up on Easter Island, isn't it?"
[SpaceDog] "So it's alive but has not hatched yet, am I right? Your thoughts and calculations on what it may be and how long till it hatches Mum?"
[Njord] "What, you going to leave us hanging? You know what it is don't you?"
[ Jeff ] "Mum and I accept your most generous gift, however, it may be many cycles before they reveal themselves. I will tell you two things, they are twins and they are what your father, Ymir, was looking for."
[Njord] "What? Wait... What did I just give away?"
[Jeff & Sidrat] "A mystery that we will solve together!"
[SpaceDog] "Emit! More Foxy Roxy specials for everyone!"
[ Emit-fox ] "You bring some of the most interesting characters in here. What happened to Lady Robin."
[Istanna] "She's probably stuck on her prison cell phone at work, wishing she kept up with us and stayed along for a longer ride. She went home, home-sick."
[ Emit-fox ] "Fascinating! What brings you back besides the birthday party and my cooking Star Lord? Did you like my choir last time? I've taken some on and they do the singing, and also work in the take out area now that I have a full establishment, thanks for your gold's down payment."
[SpaceDog] "That was classic. How much do you owe on this new restaurant?"
[ Emit-fox ] "Well... 3 platinum since I just purchased it 4 moons ago."
[Njord] "In that case, take the whole bag and let us eat any time we come back."
[SpaceDog] "Dad! Are you buying this place from him or giving it to him or am I?"
[Njord] "I thought you wanted to give him a big tit, I mean tip."
[Istanna] "Are you being distracted by my tail again. Wait, I no longer have a furry tail any more, so it must be my tits."
[ Emit-fox ] "What or who are you calling yourself these days, is it still Father Time, Nostradamus, Poseidon, Merlin or..."
[Njord] "Since my son found me again, he has been calling me dad, but I must have come back in time before since I've not used the nickname Merlin yet. Whatever you say, do not tell me anything I said from that visit. I don't want to get trapped in another time paradox."
[ Emit-fox ] "And you Star Lord, did you find the necklace for Odin and who's the gorgeous creature beside you that smells of dragon?"
[SpaceDog] "Yes to your first question and this is my wife Lady Istanna, former Air Goddess Dragoness of Alfheim. We are now the Guardians of Vanaheimr as well as all Vanir and anyone who has visited Vanaheimr. Your Fox special stew has improved. Have you added a bit of Turmeric?"
[Istanna] "You can smell my dragon blood? Last time I was here was a long time ago. I used to prance around looking like a cat when not in my original dragon form."
[ Emit-fox ] "Yes to your last question Star Lord and I remember your scent now Istanna. You left something here that I've been holding onto. It has brought me luck and hoped you would return one day to retrieve it."
[SpaceDog] "Of all the things to loose, THAT was the first magic item I ever gave to you some 5000 cycles ago. I thought you didn't like it."
[Istanna] "I loved it, I love you, I lost it, I love you, I love it again and I will love you forever!!!!"
[ Ruffi ] "That's our leaders and a fine example of fertility gods in love."
[Sidrat] "TIME OUT! Do not want to spoil the fun, but I've reached a critical point in my calculations and need to get back to Midgard so I can be precise when entangling the Vanir to their newly rebuilt home, The rebuild is now complete.
[Chepi, Zenko, Jewel & Rascal] "We have a request before we depart this excellent establishment. We smell something in the kitchen that we would like everyone including ourselves to try.
[ Emit-fox ] "I had a feeling you would like what I made for my special guests. Give me just 1/2 a moment if you don't mind."
[SpaceDog] "Is everyone on board the ARK?"
[SpaceDog] "If there are no objections... ARK, you are now a flying PIG once again. Take us to Midgard, Earth year 222 EBC plus one day after we left and go to our prior location NOW."
[Istanna] "Sidrat, will you collect Rosemary, Luke and Gertrude here so they can be with the rest of the family."
