It...it...it wouldnt stop screaming. Titanicus got fed up. He was tired, he was sticky, and he was full (2 course m eal all over his face, you'd have to imagine some made it into his mouth!) He yelled for attention. "Everybody! i think we need to fight fire with fire!" They all looked completely vexed. "We need to sing, against her. And louder than her too!" He yelled, "Got any ideas for songs?"

The harpy (that witch thing from Part 1)did her finest imitation of a soprano with a broken throat while sending all wildlife in the area into a pained frenzy.

The two-legged variety of wildlife decided to fight fire with fire:

They all formed a circle and began singing and dancing the famous ancient ditty, the Hokey Pokey -

You put your right foot in,
You pull your right foot out;
You put your left foot in,
And you shake it all about.

You do the Hokey Pokey
And you spin yourself around...
That's what it's all about!

The harpy stopped in mid verse mesmerized by the display of singing and dancing virtuosity. Finally she croaked (spoke) to the performers below...

"THat looks like fun! Would ye all mind if i were to join in?" THey all stared at each other, "Pleeeeeeeeease?" Pleaded the Harpy, "All I have ever wanted was a friend....My mum always sang to me when i was young, that is why i loved her so... that is why i sing, to make friends? But still, nobody loves me? Qhenever someone is mean to me, i get bitter for a we bit 'o time...Is there something i am doing wrong?" A single tear rolled down her...odd cheek, "As I said...All I ever wanted was a friend..."

Jayhawk looked at the harpy and said,
"I think we can handle this. Okay, gang, sing along.
You just call out my name
And you know wherever I am
I'll come running
To see you again
Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall
All you have to do is call
And you know, yeah, yeah, yeah
You've got a friend."

By now the Harpy, who's name was Lacrima, was sobbing and blowing her nose loudly in the hanky Incon had given her.
"You, sniff, are the nicest people I've ever met"
"SAY WHAT?" Legion123, wax still in his ears, shouted.

"Crying?! Are you crying?! There's no crying in Harpydom!"
shouted Apollo. Lacrima cried all the more. Everyone did what they could to comfort her, but she was inconsolable.

"Don't yell at me *sniff* Everyone yells at me *sniff,sniff* I try to be good, but no one notices. They throw rocks at me and do other mean things *sniff, sniff, sniff* chasing me away. *boo hoo hoo*

"What do we do to get her to stop crying?" they said to each other.

'Poor Harpy...' Thought Titanicus,"Lacrina, jump out of that tree for a second!" She continued to sob, but she jumped out all the same. "Now Everyone, Group Hug!!!"

George the Lion was thoroughly bored. Lions don't do group hugs, he thought to himself. Lions don't even have arms. So he raised himself up off the grass and began to pace back and forth.

Before long, George noticed something in the grass. "Hey, what's this?" George said out loud. He picked at it with his right paw. It looks like a woven thing, like a string.

"It's a thread," said a familiar voice behind George. George looked behind him to see Civis Romanus standing there. "Or at least the end of a thread."

"If it's the end of a thread, where is the beginning?" asked George.

"Hard to say," said Civis. "Sometimes these threads are so long no one remembers where the beginning is and so looses track of it by the time they get to the thread's end."

"But is this the beginning or the end of the thread?" asked George.

"It might be either, but you have to look around to see. There are telltale signs."

"Like what?"

"Oh...if it's the beginning, things looking like incomplete sculptures. Faceless people. Colorless terrain. Objects with no names. Faded edges or foggy vistas...By the way, what do you see over there, George?" said Civis.

"Well, I see a hedgerow and beyond it a road, and there seems to be a dignitary walking on the road. He looks like a governor. But his face is blank, and everything around him is white or see-through."

"Seems familiar?"

"Yes, and there in the distance is a chariot coming full speed down the road. Yes, its seems very familiar. But, but, there is the end of a thread over there too. Do you see it? Right there, tied to the hedge."

"Yes, George. I see it."

"And there is the end of a thread here too. Same material, same color...same thread?"

"Might be."

"Well, is it possible that we've come full circle and the hedge is where the thread started and this is where it has ended?"

"Well, George, I don't know. Maybe it really is time to find a fresh thread because this one's played out and maybe it's not. Let's see what the others say, okay?"

"Okay," said George.

Well what do you say group. Shall we try a fresh scene?

What do you all mean? Be magicly transported into some far off land and have some action in the thread?

OK works with me.

Just then they were all transported (with exception of the witch thing)to some far off land called....

Incontinentia came skipping up to everyone wearing a check dress and ruby slippers, with her hair in pigtails, and carrying a picnic basket and a doggy named Toto under one arm.

"Why," she beamed at everyone, "we must be Over the C3 Rainbow!"

Everyone suddenly ran for cover as she started singing:

Somewhere...in C3 Heaven
Threads begin
While a kind moderator
Lets all of us join in...

(Next chorus, anyone?)

A kangaroo bounced down the Yellow Brick Road. Gave the twosome one look and said:

"So where is the right Oz?" Jayhawk asked the kangaroo.

"Just follow the Yellow Brick Road."

"The what?"

"Follow the Yellow Brick Road...Follow the Yellow Brick Road...Follow, Follow, Follow, Follow, Follow the Yellow Brick Road...You're off to see the Lizard, the wonderful Lizard of Oz." And the kangaroo hopped down the road and away from sight.

Said pigtailed Incontinentia to straw covered Jayhawk, "I don't think we're in Roma anymore." Toto barked his agreement.

Shortly afterwards they heard a strange sound behind some trees to the right. "Owhll eee, Ohll eee." They investigated and they found, standing stiffly in place, a rusted metal man. Through a rust frozen jaw the metal man was trying to speak.

"What's he saying?" asked Incon.

"Sounds like 'oil me'," said Jayhawk. But with what?

The metal man said, "ahhe see ine."

"Could he want 'poppy-steeped wine'?" asked Incon. "I have some in a thermos in my picnic basket."

"Let's try it," said Jayhawk. And so they did, pouring a small quantity down the opening in his rusted mouth. The metal man responded immediately.

"Oh, what a relief," said the metal man. "Thank you."

"What's your name?" asked Incon.

"I'm Canus, the Tin Swordsman of Oz."

"How'd you get into this fix, Canus?" asked Jayhawk.

Canus responded, "It was like this..."

"I used to be a meat person, like you, but i had this terrible allergy problem." He sighed, "I didnt used to have allergies, but my ex-girlfriend was a wee bit angery. Also she was a witch."
"Naawe, she couldnt be all that bad," Argued Titanicus.
"No...she was a witch...flyign on broom, 'deary no water for me, i'll have the frog guts' type thingy..."
"Oh" he said. sitting down to listen with the others.
"Anywhoo," He continued, "She wanted the car back, our Corvette. But I bought it, and i was gonna keep it. SO, I was out chopping wood, for the new summer cottage i was building, on the coast of the Deadly Desert, And she cast a spell on me." He sighed again, "I was Condemmed to forever have allergies when i went outside...so i was chopping away, and i suddenly felt a twitching in my nose. I tried to fight it, and kept chopping, suddenly, Achoo! The biggest sneeze ever...it threw me off balance, and i chopped myself right in half!" He paused, rememebring... "Well, I had a friend, a tinsmith, and he fixed me right up, and made me a tin-torso. Well i kept chopping, and kept sneezing. Next went my left arm, then my right. He made me tin arms, then tin legs to replace the one si lost to a fit caused poppyseed pollen." He stopped, and then began again, "Well, finnally I lost my head, and he made me a tin one. I was out chopping, allergy free, when suddenly it started to rain. I completely froze up, rusted...like the boat titanic on the bottom of the deep-blue sea. Completely rust...then you fine people came along, and the rest is...history!"
"Whoah......" Was what all the group said in unison.

"Amazing," the group said next.

"Where are you going?" asked the Tin Swordsman of Oz.

"We're off to see the Lizard of Oz."

"I've heard of him. You follow the Yellow Brick Road, I've been told. Do you think he can restore my body and end my allergies?" The entire group shrugged its shoulders.

"Not very encouraging, people," said Canus. "Nonetheless, I think I'll give it a try. But first, one more sip of poppy-steeped wine to get me moving smoothly again."

Well oiled, Canus joined the others as they skipped down the Yellow Brick Road. "We're off to see the Lizard, the wonderful Lizard of Oz," they sang. That is, until they came to the edge of a yellow desert where the road blended into sand that stretched out as far as the eye could see.

"Well, now what do we do?" they asked each other.

Then, out of the blue, a billboard popped up.

"Cross the Desert," it read.

"Well, duh." Canus said. The billboard then popped again, and instead of saying "Cross the Desert," it now said, "Use the Subway." As soon as those words appeared, a subway station snapped into the scene.

"What's going on?" They all asked.

A ripping roar sounded from the subway entrance, imeadiately followed by a startled scream:
"Aaahh, I scared myself."

From underneat the art deco sign saying metro a sadly looking kind of lion crawled up.
"What are you?" George asked.
"Wah! a lion!" the lion screamed and shivered in his timber.
"Don't be scared, " Doronentita said, pig tails a-bobbing. "It's only George"
"B..but he's a lion"
"Aren't you a lion too?"
"Err, yeah, but I'm not particularly brave..."
"Why won't you join us? We're of to see the Lizard of Oz"
"Is that safe?"
"I think so," the straw angel replied. "What's down there?"
"It's the way down to the Yellow Brick Boat," the Lion answered, "I'll show you"

The group strode across the desert sand led by Shakey the Lion to the nearby entrance to the Subway. They walked through the sand-colored doors, down the sand-colored steps, into a sand-colored corridor, down some more sand-colored steps and into a distinctive chamber, sand-colored on the right side and charcoal grey on the left side. Etched in the grey were strange symbols and manlike beings.

"Seems vaguely familiar," said Civis to no one in particular.

"Yeah, said some of the others. Seems like we've been here before."

But they didn't stop to admire the sight for long as another door beckoned to them. Walking through to the other side of the door they found themselves in an even bigger yellow chamber, but with a difference.

Flowing through the chamber was a river, the greenest river they had ever seen. Into the river stretched a yellow dock and moored to the dock was a yellow boat.

"Everything's yellow, but the river is green. Why?" asked Incon.

"The river's real color is yellow. We dye it green to see it," said Shakey. "If it were the same color as the walls we would not know where it started or where it ended or where its banks were. The government of the Land of Oz authorized it. Quite logical if you think about it."

Some tried thinking about it, but gave up fairly quickly when the group began to walk onto the dock and towards the yellow boat.

Titanicus walked in first, and helped the Lions cross. THen he lifted, with Civis and the Straw Angel's help, the Tin Swordsman of Oz, into the boat, "Are you sure about this...I mean..water doesn't do me very much good..." Moaned the Tin Swordsman. Once they were all boarded, The baotman, who was running the boat asked where to, "The Lizard Of Oz!" They answered Unonimously. "Can't" was the reply. "...." Silence, as they thought for a second. Then Titanicus was the frist to speak up, "..Sir, If I may... Why The Heck Not?!" The man stood there for a second before replying with the simple answer of "Cuz" The group just stood there for a moment...waiting to see what to do, when suddenly there was a large roaring noise from above, in the enterance of the Subway Tunnell...

The very entrance that they came to the boat of Oz was collapsing!

So the boatman said, "You know what, how's about I take that back? On to the Lizard of oz!"


"Yeah Yeah Yeah!" The group said!
