The Rumbling got closer, and closer, dust was beginning to pour from teh enterance, "Go Go Go!" Screamed Titanicus to the boatmen..."I'm Going, I'm Going!" Yelled the Boatment over the noise, pushing away from the side of the Sand colored dock, they began to immediatly go with the river, faster and faster, 'til the wind was whipping past them, suddenly they came upon a slope in the water, where the river when down a small waterfall, "Hold On!" Yelled the Boatman as they entered the pull of it...

All the passengers of the boat screamed as it went down the falls, and the boatman struggled to keep everything above water. He pushed and paddled, poked and prodded, and avoided all the sharp, jagged rocks lining the edge of the falls. At the bottom the boat plunged into the water and surfaced again. But all but the boatman were dry, strangley enough.

"Boat dude, you've got a weird river." The Tin Swordsman said.

"Tell me about it." Said the Boatman, dripping, and he started to paddle with his hands downstream.

Mist, like wraiths, swirled across the water. A small barge appeared. The boatman was cloaked and two pinpoints of light could be seen beneath his cowl. Half a dozen spectral characters could be seen sittin gon the barge just befaore it disappeared again.

"Who was that?"
"Charon I think?"

Charon smiled a spectral smile at the travellers. "Anyone for a quick trip to the Afterlife? Only cost you one gold coin!"

"No thank you!" everyone replied in unison. Jayhawk turned to Inconti-Dorothy. "What's happened to Toto?" he asked.

"What do you mean?" Incon asked, patting Toto's trunk.

"Dorothy...your dog has turned into an elephant!" Civis exclaimed.

"No he hasn't!" Incon protested. "He's *always* been big...and grey!" She stroked Toto's tusks and trunk comfortingly and fed him a piece of sugar cane.

"Oh - come *on*!" the Tinned Swordsman said. "Before, you were carrying him under your arm! Just look at him now!!"

"Don't listen to the nasty people, Tusk-- I mean, Toto," Incon cuddled her faithful pet. "They're just envious."

Toto waved his trunk at everyone, and begged Incon for another piece of sugar cane.

Charon tapped his foot impatiently. "Does ANYONE want to visit the Lizard of Oz...or am I just wasting my time here, people?!"

Jayhawk looked him directly in the eye-socket, and said...

"Duh." They all replid in Unison, "Of Course We Do," Explained Titanicus, "If we dont go, i will feel sad 'cos i have been lugging this tourist camera around, just to get pics of the Wonderful Lizard of Oz! Eeeezh, how could you even think of asking that? ITs like..comparing Tusky to an Elephant," He smiled, "Huh Tusky?"

David, David, calm down Just because nobody posted for a couple of hours doesn't mean the thread's dead. Some people have a life besides the C3 forums (perish the thought ) Just be patient and more posts will be along.

I know of one story that hasn't had a post in months and will be back sometime this month



The boatman, who was now wearing a natty blue and gold uniform, picked up a bull horn as big himself and shouted:
"ATTENTION ALL PASSENGERS FOR OZ. FLOAT CA711 IS NOW BOARDING ON PLATFORM THREE!"

A luminous number three had suddenly appeared over th eport bow, where Charon had his barge waiting...

The Boatman for the Yellow Boat, the vessel now nearly three-quarters deep in the river's water, stopped paddling, stood up and turned to address his passengers.

"I got some bad news and good news. The bad news first: we're sinking and you all might drown - hope you have lots of gold coins. Now the good news: I'll get you a deal with Charon. Business's been light lately (Civis hasn't slaughtered anyone in awhile) and he'll take you on his barge before we sink. He wants the advertising value. You'll have to give personal testimonies when you get back (if you get back)to OZ."

The passengers could hear water sloshing in the hold. "Deal!" they said together. The crossover was quick, all joined Charon on the barge and the Yellow Boat disappeared into the mist as its boatman paddled for the shore.

Charon collected everyone's fare with a skeletal hand. "Right," he grinned at them, "it's going to be a long crossing, so there's overpriced cheese sandwiches and warm root beer in the bar. And Duty Free will be available to buy shortly before we reach our destination. So - who's up for a game of shuffleboard?"

Jayhawk turned to the others and said...

"I, for one, would rather sit in the upper deck view seats so I can see the sites along the way."

"There is no upper deck," said Charon.

"Okay, I'll sit in the observation lounge on the lower deck."

"There is no observation lounge and there is no lower deck," replied Charon.

"Well, I guess I'll just stand over there by the railing."

"Good choice," commented Charon. The others went their particular ways as Charon maneuvered the barge into the river's flow.

"Let's just humour him, okay?"
"Sure, were game," they chimed in.

Just as Charon was down the deceptively deep hold of the seemingly flat-bottomed barge, looking for his equipment, a yellow pericope appeaered.
This was quickly followed by the rest of a Yellow submarine. The hatch opened and a cartoonlike chaarcter sporting a moustache and sideburn looked out and called:
"We all live in a yellow submarine, but we're looking for this Lizard chappy. Have you seen him?"

To which the cartoon character replied,"..."

Oscar the Grouch out of the Can. "Whaoh, what are you doing? Stupid...about to eat me are ya? Well No, I dont think so!" With that, Oscar Jumped out, and ran...hopp'd away still in the can, and jumped off the submarine. "See Ya Suckers!" He yelled to them, as he floated out of site...

...just as Brian Henson (son of Jim Henson) popped out of Charon's barge's top-deck hold, shouting "Hang on a minute, fellas! Copyright! I'm thinking Copyright, here!" And hopped onto Oscar's floating can.

"Oh, Lordy...how do we get this story kick-started?" Incon asked, absent-mindedly handing a peanut to Tusky.

"Hm," Jayhawk mused.

Just then, Charon perked up. "Land Ho!" he shouted. And looked round at his unimpressed passengers. "Well...you wanted a story kick-start, didn't you...?"

Just then...land appeared quite near to them...

As they approached the land, a fierce and almighty storm struck their little vessel. Wind howled, thunder roared and lightning screeched. They were buffeted by the waves, which were the size of skyscrapers and pounding their tiny vessel. All seemed lost and forsaken while George and his motley crew huddled in the hull of the vessel, shivering cold, wet and afraid.

When all of a sudden a voice boomed from the sky "A BLESSING FROM MIGHTY NEPTUNE".

Just at that very moment, the sea becalmed, the sun burst through the clouds, the wind changed to a gentle breeze, the sky cleared to an irridescent blue, and our intrepid adventurers were safe once more.

As they drifted closer to shore, they could see the island was a strange and (seemingly) uninhabited land. It seemed to be shrouded in a golden halo.

Exhausted, they landed on the island's golden sands, to find glorious tropical forests, a running stream from the mountain in the centre of the island, and an abundance of fruit and other tropical delicacies. Unfortunately, the ship was wrecked from the beating it had taken in the previous hours, and was breaking up into driftwood before their eyes.

How would they get off this island? Was there anyone else living in this remote place? What does their future hold?

As Jayhawk staggered, exhausted, along the beach to find shelter for all his friends, he suddenly looked down, and saw ....

footprints in the sand.....

"Hit The Brakes,Hit The Brakes,Hit The Brakes!!!" Shouted Titanicus, as they headed straight at the sharply jaggged rocks at the land. just then they rammed into one, it split Charon's Boat in half. "Oye No!" Shouted Titanius, He was on teh smaller half, him Jayhawk, Incon, and Civis were on the smaller piece, the others were on the bigger one.

"Tusky! Noooo!" Shouted Incon, as the smaller pice drifted further from the shore, as the bigger one drifted inland. The pice began to roll, as it was top heavy, "Nooo!" Shouted Titanicus as he was plunged into the dark cold and swirling waters below....he didnt know what was going on...and as he slipped benathe the surface..more liek pulled under...he rolled his eyes towards his friends who were also strugling int eh water....suddenly he felt hands around his body....

An Army of Wheelers. Puppet type peoples, with wheels instead of hands and feet. The wheels charged at them...

"Oh No!" Screamed Incon!

"Yikes!" Yelped Titanicus, "Everyone, Behind Tusky..." Titanicus looked to Incon, "Tell Him to stomp them out...or something!" He yelled just as the Wheelers neared them, and came to a halt...the first wheeler then said to them...

..."Ha ha! Is a paltry elephant the best defence you've got? What puny weaklings!"

This really burned Incon's toast. She was ready to admit to her own personal puniness, but when it came to elephants no insult went unpunished.

"Tusky sweetie?" she looked up at her faithful friend.

Tusky looked at her expectantly.

"TRUNK!"

Tusky swung his trunk past the wheelers, sending them flying, and smashing into the rocks to the east.

"Good Boy." Smiled Incon, patting Tusky's trunk. They group looked at each other, "Where is The Lizard, the Wonderful Lizard of Oz?" Asked Titanicus, "He was just here, he saved me!" The group all looked to each other, "Musta swallowed To Much water," Whispered Jayhawk to Civis, who nodded. With that they all linked arms and began to skip out of the forest, and they again found the yellow brick road. They then began to sing the usual song:

We're Off to see the Lizard, The Wonderful Lizard of Oz,
We Hear he is a wonderful Liz, if ever a Liz, There was,
If Ever, If Ever a Liz there was,
this Lizard is one: Because-Because,
Because Because Because Because, Be-caaaause!
Because of the Wonderful Things He Does!
We're Off to see the Lizard,
The Wonderful Lizard Of Oz-----!

With that they skipped down the Yellow brick road, which led to the Main City Of OZ, the city was called: "..."

"Ozmosis"

The travellors soon found themselves in front of the gates to this fabulous city of OZ. Incon reached up to knock on the thick wooden doors, but before the knuckles of her hand reached the wood of the door a rapping sound was heard. Then, as her knuckles struck on the door, the rapping sound disappeared. She tried it again. The same thing happened.

A little door they hadn't previously noticed was suddenly closed shut by an unseen hand. "Whose not there?" a voice inquired.

"We are travellers seeking the great Lizard of Oz," said Civis.

"You are or are not. It makes no difference! Be unprecise," the voice said.

"I don't understand what you want us to say!" exclaimed Civis.

"Excellent! Now you have it. So, are you here or not?"

"This is ridiculous!" said Civis to the others. "I almost don't care whether I'm anywhere at this moment!" The others frowned in similar frustration.

"Well for crying out loud! Why didn't you say so in the first place. Come out! Come out! You're most unwelcome to exit. Let me close the doors for you," said the disembodied voice.

The doors to the city swung inwards and the group, led by Tusky, walked past the doors and into the city. All stopped dead in their tracks in surprise and considerable awe at the amazing sights before them. It was Titanicus who found voice enough to speak first.

"You know," said Titanicus to Civis, "I think I've heard of this place in legends in my land."

"Really. What do the legends say about it?"

"There is a special term used in conjunction with this city. Something very strange. Oh, I remember now. 'Reverse' Ozmosis, I believe.

Indeed, it was a most appropriate term, for before them was the most incredible opposite of a city they could have ever imagined...
