Lol White and I sort of made this one as a story, which each of us playing a few charries. Mine were Annabeth (lol), Pansy (duh), Leaf, 6703, James, Carrot, and P- ... nevermind. But White plays Rory, David, Poppy, Thalia, Emma, Sophia, *whisper whisper* and *whisper whisper whisper*, and we both play some background charries, like the ones that they fight (lol not the ones they just run into but the big ones) and the village peeps.

Chapter 1 A Crash Landing
Speeding through space. You can't really describe what it feels like except that it is like nothing you have felt before, with the stars racing by and the speed accelerating bit by bit. Pansy could see no one except two other rockets. One up ahead and one beside her. After Poppy had disappeared into the Baklava solar system, the others hadn't hesitated. They had all found a rocket and blasted after her, hoping for the best. Pansy found herself nearing a planet, following the rocket up ahead. She saw as the other rocket alongside her sped on, out of sight before a loud bang and clatter, then darkness.
Dust, more dust. So much dust, Thalia couldn't breathe. She coughed and gasped and spluttered and when the dust had finally cleared, she was unconscious.
Pansy sputtered and sat up. She looked around, but that made her eyes water. The wind was blowing quite hard and everything was dark. Perhaps it was night. Wasn't bad news to Pansy, being Dark magic and all. She got slowly to her feet and almost collapsed again. Her knees felt weak and her vision was blurred now. She felt sore all over and she was scared. She was lost in the middle of nowhere on some strange planet that definitely wasn't the Wind planet despite the breeze. Well, I might as well look around since I can't go back, she thought, looking miserably at the wreckage of her rocket. She dusted herself off and looked around. From her height, she could see a shadow in the darkness. Could be a boulder- or a rocket. She ran toward it, heart pounding and saw a rocket, it's front buried in sand. And beside it...... was Thalia.
Thalia blinked dust out of her eyes as Pansy shook her. She sat up and looked around groggily. "Pansy? That you?" "Yes it is!" snapped Pansy, unable to control her temper. "And thanks to you, everybody's lost and where out here in some foreign planet in the middle of nowhere!" She fumed silently and Thalia looked sadly at the ground. "I'm sorry," she said apologetically and guiltily. "I was just curious. Plus I was worried about Miss Madeleine." "Miss Madeleine can take care of herself," retorted Pansy coolly. "And as for us, WE'RE GONNA DIE OUT HERE!" Thalia flinched and looked away. "We know how to fight," she said meekly. "AND WHAT GOOD WILL THAT DO US, EH?" Pansy was still shrieking. Thalia looked very unhappy and Pansy was sobbing in rage and fear when they heard a tiny sound from behind them and spun around. Leaf was standing there, looking very distressed and tired. "LEAF!" It was Thalia's turn to holler as she grabbed her friend into an embrace. "We're not alone!" Pansy didn't say anything, but she wiped away her tears and looked away from the pair. "Face it. We're hopeless without Poppy." "You know that's now true," said Leaf, the peacemaker. "You just need to believe in your abilities and your knowledge more, that's all." "Does it include reading?" "Yes." Pansy groaned. "For the first time ever, I wish I wasn't the only option here for leader," she said. Leaf shifted uneasily. "Who else here is fit?" Pansy sighed and stood up taller. "You're right, Leaf. I've got to pull myself together. We're on a mission now and I can't let you guys down." "A mission?" asked Leaf, eyes sparkling in confusion. "Yeah!" said Thalia, jumping up and down. "Or did you forget about Miss Madeleine? She's been away too long and I guess the worst." "Well, we first have to find everyone else," said Pansy decisively. "I wonder if everybody ended up here?" "Why do I doubt that very highly?" asked Thalia frowning. Pansy glared at her. "I bet you wish it were true!" she snapped. Leaf twitched her tail. "Well, let's sightsee first and see if there's anything that can transport us outta here." "Like a rocket?" inquired Thalia eagerly. "That's the only thing that goes through space, isn't it?" replied Pansy curtly. "Now let's go." She set off over the sand covered plain. Leaf and Thalia followed her, jumping at every noise and flinching at signs of movement. Finally, when they got to the edge of the expanse of sand, Pansy pushed on, but was slowly dragged backwards by the wind. She cursed. "We can't go father!" yelled Thalia over the roar of the wind. "The wind's pushing us back!" "Then why don't you use your stupid Wind magic?" hollered Pansy in frustration. "Good idea!" Thalia closed her eyes, then opened them and recited, "Hear me wind, hear my call! Dancing in the sky, shaping the clouds, whispering to the heavens. Hear my plea and send your gale!" She spun around and raised her eyes as Poppy had done and there was a whistling sound as wind came from Thalia and slowly drove the other wind back. The three apprentices shut their eyes tight to prevent getting sand in them, and when they were opened, the sandstorm was gone and the bright, blue sky seemed warm and welcoming. Pansy blinked to get used to the light and turned to the other two, staring at Thalia. Thalia dusted herself off and smiled modestly at Leaf and Pansy. "That was cool," she commented. "And don't worry, you guys, I'm sure you'll get a chance to show off your magic soon, too." As if in answer to her words, a great rumbling sound came from behind them. Thalia spun around just in time to see a huge claw come out of the ground, then another. "Aggh!" she screamed and ran back to where Leaf and Pansy stood. A second claw joined the first, and a hideous head emerged from the sandy ground. Leaf squealed just before they were attacked. They all started in the front row with Leaf (as usual) in the back. Since Thalia at the time was fastest, she got to go first and attacked the ant lion with Wind Talon. The earth rumbled as the magic struck the ground and it took out 158 HP from the monster. Pansy went next using Shadow Die and a huge dark purple block landed on the ant lion, taking out 95 HP since it had just turned to night. Then the ant lion went, using it's tail to swipe at Pansy taking out 18 HP. Then Leaf went and used her first spell, Flower Fragrance. It restored all of Pansy's HP. Finally, after the fight, they all crouched, trembling. "I don't like this place," said Leaf, squeezing her eyes tight shut. "I wish David were here." "Well he's not," snapped Pansy, recovering from shock and regaining her old grumpy ways. "So we're just going to have to make do on our own. Now let's keep moving." All three of them got up and began walking along the barren land, not knowing what to expect, but only knowing that they were definitely not on Puffoon nor were they anywhere close to Kovomaka.
Interlude 1 Other Conclusions
Poppy groaned and rose slowly to her feet, but a cold wind buffeted her and she crouched again, taking shelter behind her fallen rocket. Where was she? She certainly wasn't on the Wind planet although it was quite windy here. But this place looked more like an Ice planet than anything else. Daringly, she got up and, shielding her face against the snow, she shuffled forward and soon saw a light in the distance. She ran for it, slipping once or twice, but determinedly pushed on until she came across a fire. Cold and weary, Poppy didn't notice the creature sitting beside it until she nearly collapsed on it. "Hey! Watch it there!" It was an otter, huddled so close to the flames it's fur was slightly singed. "S-sorry," apolegized Poppy, teeth clattering. "W-where am I a-anyways?" "You're on C-Cassia of course!" exclaimed the otter as if it was very obvious. "The W-Water p-planet!" Poppy looked around. This didn't look like a water planet to her. But it didn't matter. As long as she had warmth, she could wait until someone found her.....
"James, gerroff!" said Emma irritably. Her voice was muffled by him. "Sorry!" James scoot off and Emma popped up, glaring at him and brushing herself off. "Where in the world are we?" "Dunno," replied James, looking around. "Wherever we are, it sure is, well, foresty." "Oh, shut up," sighed Emma. "Just help me out and look. We need to find the others." "Oh, right!" said James, giving her a goofy look. Emma rolled her eyes. But at least she wasn't alone.
Carrot scrambled to her feet and looked up. She held in a scream for a girl, just a little older than her was crouching by her, staring with gentle brown eyes. When she awoke, the stranger lept back and stared at Carrot. Carrot dragged herself to her feet and began to take in her surroundings. She was amidst dense forest and she was alone besides the girl. "Who are you?" she demanded. "Have you seen anyone else like me?" The girl shook her head and looked at Carrot, a mixture of curiosity and anxiousness on her face. "Well?" demanded Carrot. "Go away then." The girl didn't move an inch and Carrot was getting angry. "Go away or I'll make you," she snapped and summoning her Wind magic, attempted to blast the girl backwards. But something happened she didn't expect. With a flick of her wrist, the girl deflected the magic and continued looking at the angry bunny, now a look of pure amusement on her face. She would be tall standing and she was wearing purple clothes. Carrot had never seen anyone like her. Sighing, she said, "Fine. Will you help me then? I'm looking for some of my friends." The girl then spoke, "Yes, I will help you find your friends....... I guess." Carrot looked satisfied. "Okay, then," she said, nodding.
Annabeth was freezing cold and Rory was nowhere in sight. She was alone, utterly alone. She got shakily to her feet and walked some ways before bumping into something. Before she could run or move, someone grabbed her wrists and, while he held her on the spot, someons else pulled a bag over her head. Then Annabeth knew no more.
David whimpered. "Ror, we have to get out of here." "Gee," said Rory grumpily. "I didn't know that." David looked at the ground. At first, the two had been delighted because, according to some local, they had landed on Puffoon, the Wind planet. Then, they had been frustrated because no one else had wound up there. "Look, you go explore the town," said Rory decisively. "And I'll stay here, just in case they might still land." "Okay!" squealed David and he scampered away.
Ouch, thought 6703. Why does everything bad always happen to me? He was standing on a vast white beach. It was blanketed in snow, and for the first time, he had no clue of his surrounding. He walked a little way and up a flight of stairs when he heard footsteps behind him and something whacked him hard on the back of the head. With a click, 6703 toppled over, unconscious.

Chapter 2 Khave Ruins
"We're gonna die!" said Leaf in despair. "Oh, what cruel irony! We just wanted to rescue Miss Madeleine, but we did something stupid and ended up on this bleak remote plain." "Shut up and listen," said Pansy. "I'm in charge here and I won't let any of you die." "Who got to decide that?" asked Thalia, still timid after their row. "Me because I'm in charge. Now let's go," said Pansy. She strode away rather huffily and the others had no choice but to follow her. They walked up a narrow path, the ground flecked the pebbles. Thalia shivered and Leaf held in a whimper. They were in no good situation at the moment and all were desperate to find shelter and maybe something to eat and drink. "Whoa," said Thalia suddenly, stepping forward. Her eyes were wide. "Hey, um Pansy? You'd better come look." Pansy picked her way carefully over and raised an eyebrow. "What is that?" she asked. "I'm confuddled. What is this place?" "I dunno, but I don't like it here, wherever we are," replied Leaf with a shiver. "Oh, if only David were here! He'd know what to do." "Ah, that's a first," mumbled Pansy. She straightened up to regain her pride and walked forwards. At first, Leaf and Thalia followed her before halting hesitantly as she strutted up to the door. "Uh, Pansy?" said Thalia. "You thinking about going in there?" "Yes," said Pansy flatly. "This is probably risky and totally stupid, but I'm going with you," decided Thalia, stepping forward. Leaf held back for a moment before walking slowly up to her two companions. Together, the three of them stepped over the threshold and stared at the darkness before them. Thalia stepped out into the darkness. "Pansy, it's kind of dark in here," she said in a quivery voice. "I'm kinda scared right now." Pansy walked forward. "Well, if you want a nightlight, you'll have to look for Poppy," she said. Thalia flinched as Pansy walked in front of her and continued on. No sooner had they gone a few paces than four robots appeared from nowhere. One of them advanced threateningly and spoke in a dull, hollow voice, "Intruders detected. Reformatting intruder's face." All four of them charged and attacked. Thalia let loose her wind magic and, being moved to the back row, destroyed all of them with one hit. "Yeah!" she yelled as the battle ended. Pansy grumbled. Leaf sucked on her tail. The three of them continued on, a little more confident after that victory. Pansy walked behind Thalia, a little put out, but still determined all the same. They headed toward an elevator and moved up one floor before heading toward another elevator. But as they neared, Leaf hesitated and spat out her tail tip. "Guys, I'm a little freaked out right now. Can we go back?" she asked anxiously. "I thought that being nervous was my job!" laughed Thalia, but Pansy looked stone serious. "Leaf, we can't," she said. "We hafta keep going and find out what's at the top of these ruins. It's the least we can do in our spare time, being stranded and all." Her voice became strained and tight at the end of her words. Thalia tried not to look awkward as they kept walking, Leaf still tagging along behind. They entered the elevator and rode it to the top floor. Thalia immediately stepped from the group and stared straight ahead. "Pansy, if that what I think it is?" she whispered, pointing. "A rocket?" "Yeah, it's a rocket all right. Nice eyes, Thalia," said Leaf before Pansy could reply. She walked forward and grinned. "Great! Now we can leave this place at last." "Let's go before some more of those robo thingys come back," urged Pansy, ushering them forward. But as they strode up to the rocket, a bleeping noise sounded behind them and four robots wheeled up to them. "Intruder detected. Eliminate, eliminate." "Not again," muttered Thalia, readying herself for battle. But not this time. A huge red robot suddenly came up from behind and spoke in a deep clanking voice, much unlike 6703. "Intruders detected. Purge. Purge. Purge." He began concentrating hard, summoning strength. "Electro knuckles charged. Firing in T-minus....." "Agggh!" screamed Thalia. "RUN FOR IT!" All of them turned to make a dash, but then a sudden shock zapped them and they slipped into unconsciousness.

Chapter 3 The Spiny Moles
The red robot along with his four followers put Pansy in a dank, must-smelling cell and Leaf and Thalia in another together. Then one of the robots wheeled over to a red button and pressed it. The red robot and the three other filed over the bridge to the cell just before they pulled in, leaving no way out except a huge ditch with large spikes in it. They activated a huge robo guard with four surveillance cameras to watch them and left.
Leaf woke up first and bit back a cry of fear for the darkness seemed to press in on her, increasing her natural salamander fear. Where am I? She waited for her eyes to adjust to the dark a little before walking forwards, but halting quite suddenly, this time issuing a cry. For there was a huge ditch before her, containing several deadly spikes. There was no way out. Gee, who knew robots made people prisoners? 6703 would never do this. Maybe I should be nicer to him the next time I see him- if there is a next time. She walked, downcast, to the back of the cell and curled up, wrapping her tail around herself in her anguish. Pansy groaned and struggled to rise, her joints aching horribly. She finally managed to stand up, though she payed a price for it. The robo guard outside zapped her, taking out ten HP. Otherwise, she was fine. Pansy walked to the edge of her cell and called in a shaky voice, "Th-Thalia? You there? Leaf?" Leaf didn't respond, she was too busy lamenting. But Thalia perked up and looked around warily. "I hope those robo freaks don't come back," she muttered. Then, looking around, she realized that Pansy wasn't there, only herself and Leaf. "Oh Pansy, you're not with us! I hope those robots haven't done anything to her. But where could Pansy be?" Then, Thalia looked around and noticed the cell beside hers. "Pansy!" she cried and ran over to the wall. "Pansy, if you can hear me, tap on the wall!" Pansy heard, shrugged and gave the wall a couple of punches. Thalia gave a sigh of relief. "You're all right then. Well, what have we gotten ourselves into now? There's not obvious way out and there's this ditch blocking our path full of nasty spikey things. What do we do?" Pansy stepped back from the wall and sat on the ground of her cell. She wondered, briefly, if they should just stay put and see what happened, but that would obviously be no good, considering the circumstances. Pansy sighed. What to do? It took about half an hour before she reClanmateed a lesson they had been taught one day by Miss Madeleine. "Now class," she had said. Poppy and Emma had immediately sat up straight and brought out pencils. Brainyacks. "Today, we will learn about wild magic," Miss Madeleine had said. "Everyone who casts magic has wild magic. Wild magic can be cast anywhere. All you have to do is issue and incantation. Each starsign has it's own chant. Wild magic has a great affect on terrain, depending on the type of magic. It is also used for distractions- not to put ideas into your tiny apprentice brains." All this time, Poppy and Emma had been writing frantically, while Pansy bit back laughter. But now, as she thought of it, the distraction part seemed pretty good to her. She looked up and saw the robo guard still pacing, all it's surveillance cameras fixed on Leaf and Thalia. Perfect timing. Pansy stood up. She began her chant in a small, timid voice at first, but soon it strengthened, until she was almost yelling, "Dark, dark, cast down on us! Bring with you cooling shade and peaceful nights! You are the shadows, dancing and following, you are in each mischievous child. Cast down on us!" As the last words echoed around the prison, a deep rumbling shook the ground and Pansy backed away as the robo guard looked around as if surprised. Everything turned dark. "Whoa!" exclaimed Leaf. "This is not good." There was a series of clanking and bleeping and a crash. When the darkness, along with some dust cleared, Pansy saw that the robo guard had fallen into the spikey pit and it's head formed a sort of walkway that Pansy could escape on. She cheered inside and scrambled over the head-bridge. A cry from Thalia stopped her from making a fast escape. "This is freaky, Pansy. Help!" Pansy sighed and turned around. Evidently, she would have to help her friends escape. Unfortunately, there weren't anymore robo guards she could use. She reClanmateed vaguely that the robots who had imprisoned them had touched a button to withdraw the bridges. Surely that button must make the bridges go across again? Pansy began searching the prison thoroughly, looking for the device with the button that would set her friends free. Finally, after about ten minutes, she found a machine with two buttons. One was red, one was green. Pansy tapped the red one and heard a whirring sound, then an exclamation from Thalia. "Yikes! What's going on? I don't like this." Pansy hurried back to Thalia and Leaf's cell and found Leaf and Thalia huddled together in a corner, whimpering. Pansy hurried over to them and tapped Thalia lightly on the shoulder. Thalia started violently and cried, "Back off, mecha freak!" She turned, saw Pansy instead of a robot and turned away to hide her flushed face. Then she turned again to face her friend. "Pansy!" she exclaimed. "You came to rescue us?" "Yep," replied Pansy proudly. "You are soooo my hero," sighed Thalia. "Did you beat up that freaky robo guard?" asked Leaf, equally as awed. Pansy didn't reply, just let them join her and walked out. Thalia and Leaf noticed the robo guard's head and were even more amazed. "You did that by yourself?" asked Leaf, surprised. "Of course I did. Who else is there?" asked Pansy, enjoying the attention. Thalia and Leaf walked behind Pansy, keeping close to her side as if she was their protector. They were nearly at the doorway, when a loud clanking noise interrupted them. Spinning round, they saw the robo guard was not beaten after all. It jumped up from the pit and started clanking and whirring before coming toward them, sparks flying from the places where it's feet touched the ground. Then it attacked them.
The three of them lay panting on the ground, exhausted. They had spent much magic power trying to defeat the robot, and had at last succeeded.
