Chapter 24 - Grave New WorldEdit

scene 1 - Days of Whine and Roses


intro [in garden]


Megan

Oh, hello.


Remember the good ol' days when you and I used to have heart-to-hearts?


[go to scene Forgotten Paris Palace]


part 1 [before scene]


Megan

It seems so long ago that you and I were brand new inductees.


Megan

My biggest concern then was that Quincy was taking forever to notice me!


Megan

Doesn't it seem as if so much has changed?


part 2 [after scene]


Megan

I guess lately I have been thinking a lot about what Eleanor did.


Megan

I don't blame her for wanting to bring back the man she loved so deeply.


Megan

I can't honestly say that I wouldn't try to do the same if something happened to Quincy.


Megan

In our perilous profession...do you think it's right for two people to be together?


Megan

It just seems that work will always have to come first.


Megan

Does being a Time Agent prevent us from settling into any sort of long-term love?


outro [back to garden]


Megan

Those questions were all...rhetorical.


I don't expect you, or anyone, to have the answers. But they've been weaving around in my mind nevertheless.


scene 2 - Home is Where the Heart Breaks


intro [in garden]


Alistair

While I feel quite terrible about all this...


...we're going to need to conduct an enquiry into the consequences for Eleanor's actions.


[go to scene Time Manor]


part 1 [before scene]


Alistair

I'm now calling to order the disciplinary hearing for Eleanor Lansing Purlieu.


Eleanor

  • Sniffle*


Alistair

Eleanor, do you acknowledge that you acted against the Laws of the Time Society?


Alistair

By knowingly attempting to alter the course of past events?


part 2 [after scene]


Eleanor

Yes...but I did it out of love!


Alistair

I'm very sorry, Eleanor...


Alistair

But we must suspend you from your duties as a member of the Time Society until you are deemed fit to return to your position.


Eleanor

Wait! Please!


Eleanor

I know I'll be able to find Geoffrey again if I keep looking.


Eleanor

You can't take time travel away from me! It's all I have left!


Megan

  • Gasp*


outro [back to garden]


Megan

That...that was awful.


I can't help but feel like we've forced a friend into running away like a fugitive when she most needed our help.


scene 3 - Tournament of Closes


intro [in garden]


Alistair

Let me do the fretting about Eleanor, for now.


Meanwhile, please help try to fix this fractured timestream before it's too late.


[go to scene Jousting Tournament Paradox]


part 1 [before scene]


Megan

Quincy says that the fissure in the fabric of the universe begins here, since these are the coordinates that Eleanor attempted to alter.


Megan

If we reconcile this paradox...


Megan

Well, it's the first step to closing off all the strange, apocalyptic effects we've been seeing.


Megan

So, we better get back to work.


part 2 [after scene]


Megan

Well, at least that's over and done with.


Megan

That paradox made the place seem so familiar, yet so unsettlingly foreign at the same time...


Megan

As if we were standing on the threshold of two worlds...


Megan

Being pulled into opposite directions at once.


outro [back to garden]


Megan

I'm glad I didn't have to do that alone.


I think I could use a little time resting in my garden--Couldn't you?


scene 4 - Big City Life


intro [in garden]


Lulu

I suppose you can tag along if you want!


I've been invited to a soiree at Cleopatra's Manhattan townhouse! All of high society is going to be there!


[go to scene Manhattan Kitchen]


part 1 [before scene]


Lulu

Actually, it's probably better if you pretend not to know us.


Lulu

The guest list is mostly couples, so I am bringing Richard as my plus one!


Lulu

Ooo, won't Cleopatra be so mad that I brought you as my date, Richard?


Richard

I shall clarify to our third wheel here that we're only pretending to be a couple for the party...


Richard

...so that we can pounce on Cleopatra in her own home where she least expects it!


Lulu

Right! It's all just part of the ruse! Shall we?


part 2 [after scene]


Lulu

How rude! The hostess didn't show up for her own party...


Lulu

And what's more, she just left her gorgeous kitchen in an unsightly mess!


Richard

Judging from the way that things were frantically thrown about...


Richard

I'd guess Cleopatra left Manhattan in a hurry.


Richard

Knowing her, she probably intends to lay low for a little bit while we have this Eleanor disaster filling our plates.


outro [back to garden]


Richard

I despise the idea of giving up our search.


But looking for Cleopatra is futile at this point. When she wants to be found, she'll let us know. But until then, there are plenty of other problems we need to deal with.


scene 5 - Zen and the Art of Garden Maintenance


intro [in garden]


Finally! I get to do some gardening again!


Care to join me, Sweetie?


[go to scene Zen Garden]


part 1 [before scene]


Lulu

Living the big city life was fun...but I was getting a teensy tired of all the hustle and bustle.


Lulu

Don't get me wrong. I am totally a cosmopolitan girl at heart!


Lulu

But I was definitely in need of some serious gardening time.


part 2 [after scene]


Lulu

I'm disappointed that Cleopatra's party didn't happen, though.


Lulu

I wonder how she climbed to the top of the social ladder so quickly.


Lulu

The talk of the town was that she only invited the cream de la cream to her soirees--


Lulu

What do you mean it's supposed to be *creme de la creme*???


Lulu

Anyway, just because Richard and I didn't catch Cleopatra doesn't mean that he and I didn't make a great team!


outro [back to garden]


Lulu

Wasn't that nice?


Everyone should remember to do a little gardening every once in a while. I think it would help them all feel at least a little less glum.


scene 6 - Takes Two to Tundra


intro [in garden]


Quincy

Where have you been?


I know we're all upset about what happened to Geoffrey. But I'm afraid the flow of time will be disrupted if we don't get to work!


[go to scene Arctic Giza Paradox]


part 1 [before scene]


Quincy

As you can see, there's a good deal of time-sensitive work that needs to be done.


Quincy

And I could most definitely use your assistance.


Quincy

The fact that a paradox state has cropped up here means that time itself is recognizing something's wrong.


part 2 [after scene]


Quincy

You see, places like this, where we've witnessed apocalyptic atmospheric patterns...


Quincy

...These sit at the very edges of the temporal fissure that Eleanor caused.


Quincy

Think of it as a zipper, where each of these paradoxes is a pair of teeth that must be zipped together.


Quincy

Except that when the entire zipper is closed, the seam magically fuses into a smooth piece of fabric!


Quincy

Oh dear, I am not very good at these garment-related analogies.


Quincy

Let's just say that since we've reconciled this paradox...


Quincy

...we're a little closer to mending that crack in the fabric of time!


outro [back to garden]


Quincy

I do hope that wasn't too confusing.


I have been so buried in research lately that it's difficult for me to switch my mind off of it for smalltalk.


scene 7 - A Piece of Ship


intro [in garden]


Quincy

I could really use a swim to calm my nerves.


Now that we've mended the paradox in Egypt, we're going to have to wait until we detect another paradox near the crack in time. Once we do, we'll need to act quickly.


[go to scene Titanic Wreckage]


part 1 [before scene]


Quincy

Since I've dragged you along on this underwater voyage, I owe you a confession.


Quincy

It's a hobby of mine to study abandoned mechanical devices, large and small.


Quincy

There is something about studying things that have failed which provides a special brand of knowledge.


Quincy

And the Titanic itself has always been a personal curiosity of mine.


Quincy

Would you mind if we moved in for a closer look?


part 2 [after scene]


Quincy

Absolutely fascinating!


Quincy

Oh, what is it you were saying about Megan?


Quincy

This crack in time has been my top priority, of course, since all of history as we know it is at stake.


Quincy

I'm sure Megan feels this same sense of urgency...


Quincy

... and understands that, right now, we need to put our duties to the Time Society first!


outro [back to garden]


Quincy

It's a shame.


Such a magnificent piece of machinery sitting at the bottom of the ocean. Let's just hope the rest of civilization does not sink to the same fate.



Chapter 25 - Green Eggs and NottinghamEdit

scene 1 - Not in Nottingham Anymore


intro [in garden]


Alistair

I have a special assignment for you.


You've been with us for some time now and have done plenty to earn my respect. I think it's high time you were given more responsibilities! I mean, a promotion!


[go to scene Sherwood Forest Hideout]


part 1 [before scene]


Alistair

As I've mentioned before, I have a number of informants scattered across time...


Alistair

...monitoring the welfare of England, and thus the home of the Time Society.


Alistair

But seeing as we're understaffed with Eleanor on a mandatory leave of absence...


Alistair

I've decided to promote one of these more skilled informants to Time Agent.


Alistair

Let's bring him the good news!


part 2 [after scene]


Alistair

Hmm...he doesn't seem to be home at the moment.


Alistair

I'll caution you, E. does tend to stray away from his post often.


Alistair

He's supposed to be monitoring a noble band of rebels and keeping the power of an English tyrant in check.


Alistair

It's quite an important task but there's no need for me to go into the historical details with you.


Alistair

We'll hunt him down soon enough.


Alistair

When we do, I'd like you to oversee his induction as a Time Agent!


outro [back to garden]


Alistair

I'll be honest.


It hasn't been easy to keep the Time Society running without Eleanor's expertise. But let me worry about that.


scene 2 - Abridged Over Troubled Water


intro [in garden]


Quincy

I've been digging through the archives.


I think I've finally found some coherent documentation on how to solve our problem. Come along and I'll summarize my findings for you.


[go to scene Rainforest River Paradox]


part 1 [before scene]


Quincy

Unfortunately the records were very vague on exactly what drove one of the Time Society's founders to go back into his own past.


Quincy

But what was clear was the data on the consequences.


Quincy

Only a privileged few know this--but El Dorado was once a city made of real gold.


Quincy

However, as a result the bizarre phenomena associated with a fissure in time...


Quincy

...now it's merely gold-colored stone.


Quincy

Quite a shame, too, because it really does look magnificent from here.


part 2 [after scene]


Quincy

The lack of organization in the Time Society's records archive is truly an atrocity, by the way.


Quincy

If someone like me had such trouble collecting the necessary data...


Quincy

...I can't imagine it being a feasible task for anyone else.


Quincy

I keep meaning to design a better database for storing all the information.


Quincy

But, of course, I never seem to have the time for such recreational tasks!


outro [back to garden]


Quincy

By patching up rifts and paradoxes along the fissure...


...we should be able to mend it and return things to normal. That is, so long as we work fast and no one is perpetuating the problem.


scene 3 - A Chameleon's Circuit


intro [in garden]


Alistair

You know, in the grand scheme of things...


...you haven't been with the Time Society for very long. And yet you've proven yourself quite well in the short amount of time we've known each other.


[go to scene London Thames Market]


part 1 [before scene]


Alistair

I still remember the scuffle that Eleanor and Richard were engaged in at the time of your induction.


Alistair

It was so apparent that Eleanor really needed a steadfast companion.


Alistair

I've always wanted the best for her.


Alistair

But I never realized how much I relied on her as a colleague until now that she’s fled from us.


Alistair

I'm sorry I've been thinking aloud so much. Let's just have a look around.


part 2 [after scene]


Alistair

Well, I thought that my informant could be found at this market.


Alistair

But once again, I seem to be misinformed.


Alistair

E. certainly is a master of evading detection, which is one of his great strengths when he is working covertly.


Alistair

However, it does mean he is very difficult to find if I need to contact him!


outro [back to garden]


Alistair

Thanks to you...


...I know there's still at least one strong member of our Society. I'm very glad to have found you.


scene 4 - The Once and Future Lake


intro [in garden]


Megan

I'm still searching for Eleanor.


But she's not exactly been flying within the Time Society's radar, if you follow. Do you think she's still trying to find Geoffrey in Camelot?


[go to scene Lady Of The Lake Paradox]


part 1 [before scene]


Megan

Quincy says it's possible Geoffrey was written out of history by the crack in time.


Megan

Now that Eleanor has illegally rebooted Camelot, so to speak, this isn't exactly the same stream of events it was before.


Megan

But the fact that there's another one of these ominous paradoxes in one of her last known locations...


Megan

If I understand correctly, it means she's still messing with her own timeline.


part 2 [after scene]


Megan

Well, even if Eleanor was here, she's not anymore.


Megan

If I can be fully candid with you though, old friend, I have to say I haven't exactly been thorough with my search so far.


Megan

The truth is, I feel absolutely terrible that Eleanor feels the need to run from us.


Megan

We're supposed to be her friends!


Megan

And friends help friends get through rough times and personal tragedies.


outro [back to garden]


Megan

I know, I know.


We need to focus on preserving the integrity of time and space for the greater good. But it doesn't feel quite as heroic if it means having to hunt down a fellow Agent like a criminal.


scene 5 - Apocalypse Snow


intro [in garden]


Quincy

This is rough news, indeed.


It seems that Egypt is still snowed over! And that paradox has yet to fully be closed.


[go to scene Arctic Giza Paradox


part 1 [before scene]


Quincy

Unbelievable! No change at all from the last time you were here.


Quincy

I'll try to run some more tests, but I'm fairly certain I know why this part of the time fissure remains open.


part 2 [after scene]


Quincy

It's as I suspected. Eleanor is still trying to jury-rig the course of her life events.


Quincy

That explains why Egypt is still in this snowy and--pardon my hyperbole--apocalyptic state.


Quincy

There really ought to be a more efficient word to refer to a combination of snow and an apocalypse.


Quincy

We don't exactly have the luxury of performing linguistic acrobatics when all of history is at stake.


Quincy

Don't you agree?


outro [back to garden]


Quincy

I do hope that Megan has caught up to Eleanor by now.


I hate to say this, but if you ask me, it's entirely inexcusable that Eleanor did something so selfish. An Agent with as much experience as her should know better.


scene 6 - Music of the Knight


intro [in garden]


Megan

It's a long shot.


But Geoffrey did enjoy visiting Germany. Maybe we'll find Eleanor there?


[go to scene German Opera House


part 1 [before scene]


Eleanor

!!!


Megan

Eleanor!


Megan

Wait!


Eleanor

I'm sorry...but I can't let you take time travel away from me!


Megan

Eleanor, please! I want to help!


part 2 [after scene]


Megan

Well, it looks like Eleanor got away this time.


Megan

I guess we'll just have to keep following her trail.


outro [back to garden]


Megan

Thanks for coming along as backup.


But don't worry about reporting this incident to Alistair. I'll...umm...I'll be sure to keep him apprised of the status of my assignment.


scene 7 - Meet, Wink, and Be Merry


intro [in garden]


Alistair

I think I've finally managed to hunt E. down.


Remember to get him to understand--we expect him to be more accessible if he's going to be working as a Time Agent!


[go to scene Archery Contest]


part 1 [before scene]


Alistair

Why do I keep referring to my informant as E. you ask?


Alistair

This may sound a bit odd but the only name I have on file for him is Mr. E. Manners.


Alistair

Despite our years of working together, I've never thought to ask his real name until now.


Alistair

I presumed that information about our informants was kept to a minimum to preserve their cover identities.


Enrique

My name's Enrique Manners, as a matter of fact, but call me Enrique!


Enrique

And I must ask, to what do I owe the pleasure of meeting this absolutely charming Agent?


part 2 [after scene]


Enrique

It's great to see you, Alistair, but I must say, you've caught me off-guard!


Enrique

I was spending my time off in a friendly competition with some merry old friends of mine.


Alistair

Well, I wanted to bring you some good news, Enrique!


Alistair

We'd like to promote you to the status of Time Agent.


Alistair

After all the help you've given me in more clandestine roles, you're well-deserving of this new post.


Alistair

And my colleague here will be mentoring you throughout your induction.


Enrique

Why, thank you, Alistair!


Enrique

I assure you, while my suaveness and stealthiness were my assets as an informant...


Enrique

...that's only a small glimpse of the strong qualities I have to offer!


outro [back to garden]


Enrique

That certainly is very good news!


And I'm not just speaking of the promotion! I'm pleased to hear that I will be seeing more of you in my near future as well.



Chapter 26 - The Original Prince of ThievesEdit

scene 1 - Lunar Landing Paradox


intro [in garden]


Quincy

This is beyond even my area of expertise.


The paradoxes caused by Eleanor's abuse of time travel have spread all the way to outer space! I hate to admit this...but we'll need the help of a specialist for this one.


[go to scene Lunar Landing Paradox]


outro [back to garden]


Chauncey in Space Helmet

Strong work, fellow Time Traveler!


Though we never found its cheesy center, thanks to us the moon won't get sucked into the fissure in time. I say victory for the Time Society!


part 1 [before scene]


Chauncey in Space Helmet

Tally-ho, fellow Time Society member! I'm Lunar Module Pilot Chauncey McNichols, emissary to the outer fringes of time and space!


Chauncey in Space Helmet

I'd rather not try to remember if we've met before because everything is much more interesting when conversing with strangers!


Chauncey in Space Helmet

I say! It's not often we get one of these paradoxes on this ol' rock!


Chauncey in Space Helmet

Why don't you get it sorted while I tell you about the time I was in Atlantis...


part 2 [after scene]


Chauncey in Space Helmet

...So you see, it was only I and a distinguished few who ever saw Atlantis before it got all waterlogged.


Chauncey in Space Helmet

Such a pity. If only that old Time Master fellow didn't try to do a switcheroo with his own timestream...


Chauncey in Space Helmet

...maybe we'd still be seeing that once-great city afloat!


Chauncey in Space Helmet

But there's no reason to dwell on the past--Don't you agree?


Chauncey in Space Helmet

Especially not when there is some green cheese meant to be found in these parts!


Chauncey in Space Helmet

You wouldn't happen to have any biscuits in your pockets, would you? To go with the cheese?



scene 2 - A Removable Feast


intro [in garden]


Enrique

Why hello there, love!


I'm very much looking forward to the time we'll spend together! But before I kiss Nottinghamshire goodbye, I'm afraid I have some unfinished business! Shall we?


[go to scene Prince John's Table]


part 1 [before scene]


Enrique

This sleepy province could have been mundane for some...


Enrique

...but I like to create my own excitement!


Enrique

Why don't you help yourself to some food and I'll tell you about it?


part 2 [after scene]


Enrique

...So as you can see, I thought that I could teach that English tyrant a lesson without him even realizing it.


Enrique

He has resources, gold, and food aplenty!!!


Enrique

He'd barely even notice if I took a thing or two here and there using my sleight of hand.


Enrique

Erm...Speaking of noticing things...


Enrique

RUN!!!


outro [back to garden]


Enrique

Ah, wasn't that just exhilarating?


I'm going to drop off this food for some dear friends of mine but I'll be back before you know it!


scene 3 - Can't Spy Me Love


intro [in garden]


Lulu

No need to fill *me* in, Dearie!


Of course I already know about who you’ve been running around medieval England with. I must say, he's quite a catch!


[go to scene Carnaby Street]


part 1 [before scene]


Lulu

I think it is pretty nifty that you get to train the new guy and all.


Lulu

But I wouldn't blame you if you spent time with him outside of work, too!


Lulu

No need to blush, Sweetie!


Lulu

Why, I know I would be too, if I didn't already have my sights set on someone else...


Lulu

If you guess right, I might just tell you who I've been pursuing of late!


part 2 [after scene]


Lulu

Robin Hood? Who's Robin Hood?


Lulu

Guess again!


Lulu

No, I don't see a doctor coming out of that police box over there. Doctor who???


Lulu

Well since you've given up, I'm going to keep a secret for once!


Lulu

And I am not even going to tell you if it is someone you know or not!


outro [back to garden]


Lulu

Only because we're such good pals...


I'm going to see if I can find out more about Enrique for you. Leave it to me! I'll let you know if I uncover any juicy morsels!


scene 4 - Gardens of Tea Time

intro [in garden]


Alistair

Might I remind you...


Your assignment with Enrique is not all fun and games. The Time Society is spread thin without Eleanor and efficiently preparing Enrique to join us will help.


[go to scene Victorian Tea Parlor]


part 1 [before scene]


Enrique

No need to look so stuffy there, gorgeous!


Enrique

I find tea to be absolutely fascinating, don't you?


Enrique

I'll take mine with three sugars, please!


part 2 [after scene]


Enrique

Oh, did Alistair tell you to bring me here to tell me the laws of the Time Society?


Enrique

Come now, surely he must know that I already know them!


Enrique

Remain an observer of history and not a participant...


Enrique

Avoid contact and encounters with your own past or future self...


Enrique

No altering events in the past...et cetera, et cetera.


Enrique

Love! It was my job as an informant to uncover secret information!


Enrique

So now that that is taken care of, why don't we take advantage of this place and enjoy some tea together instead!


Enrique

What do you say?


outro [back to garden]


Enrique

I'm eager to learn from you about being an Agent...


But I hope you'll find it useful to learn a thing or two from me, too! I can tell this is going to be the beginning of a beautiful friendship.


scene 5 - Sail the Second Seas


intro [in garden]


Richard

I've got nothing against your new charge...


At the very least he seems more interested than these other prudes we've been surrounded by. I'm quite okay with that.


[go to scene Captain's Quarters]


part 1 [before scene]


Richard

Don't you worry...I've been doing my part in plastering up this fissure in time.


Richard

It's not like I am on this foul ship to get my sea legs!


part 2 [after scene]


Richard

I do wonder, though, why Alistair boasts of Enrique as a master of disguise.


Richard

If you ask me, the only place he would really fit in is a place like this...


Richard

...maintaining some exaggerated reputation of a dreaded pirate of some sort.


Richard

But it might just be how overwhelmed I am by the stench of salty sea air at the present.


Richard

I don't really mean to speak ill of the chap.


Richard

In fact, there is something about him that even I find...likeable.


Richard

But I can't place my fingers on what it is just yet.


outro [back to garden]


Richard

Is it just me...


Or does the sea smell worse now than it did prior to this crack in the universe thing? Alistair will claim differently but I'm not convinced we're back to the right timestream.


scene 6 - The 'Burgs


intro [in garden]


Alistair

I'd like you and Enrique to do some training in the field.


Mending paradoxes is an important skill for a Time Agent! But let's have him work on one of the lower-priority paradoxes...just to be safe.


[go to scene Rothenburg Paradox]


part 1 [before scene]


Enrique

Love, you really must stop fretting about me. I insist!


Enrique

Of course I know how to correct these paradoxes!


Enrique

You know, I know more about what it takes to be a Time Agent than you might think!


Enrique

But if you'd rather get this task out of the way, I am happy to oblige!


part 2 [after scene]


Enrique

You see? Easy!


Enrique

Now that that's all been taken care of...


Enrique

I was wondering if it might interest you to take a long walk in the nearby park?


Enrique

It's such a lovely day and I'd hate to see it go to waste!


outro [back to garden]


Alistair

Done already?


I promoted Enrique because he's shown great potential but I am concerned about his questionable work ethic. He needs to understand there's serious work to be done.



[go to scene Robin Hood & Little John]

scene 7 - To Match a Thief


intro [in garden]


Enrique

Finally, I've found someone to take my place in Nottingham.


He's a little scruffier than myself and perhaps slightly less agile...but he certainly has the right heart for the job!


part 1 [before scene]


Enrique

Oh no! I don't mean for this guy to take my place as Alistair's informant.


Enrique

I mean that someone needs to look after the people of Nottingham and defend them from the tyrannical rule of their prince!


Enrique

You see, while I've been stationed here, I've seen the locals treated very unfairly.


Enrique

As a protector of the innocent, I stole riches from the pompous nobility to make sure the poor had what they needed to survive.


Enrique

I'd introduce you to my successor but it seems that he's a little preoccupied at the moment.


part 2 [after scene]


Enrique

I pride myself in being an excellent judge of character...


Enrique

...and I have a feeling that Robin here is the type who will become the great stuff of legends.


Enrique

He might even become known in history for all the tricks he's learned from me!


Enrique

But I have a propensity for anonymity that comes with my stealthiness.


Enrique

And while it allows me to perform well in covert operations, it means I get left out of the history books.


outro [back to garden]


Enrique

But not to worry!


I don't need to become a legend to know that I helped the folks of Nottingham! I'd rather leave my successor with the glory if it means I'm free to travel the universe with you!
