very bad day

It started out like any other day. Wake up late, large breakfast, oppress the peasants, and then this happened. This thing appeared out of nowhere—literally nowhere; he can sense its mind and that mind did not exist until it was existing right on top of him—and then it swallows him. All the Lord Ruler sees is what looks like a gigantic mirror reflecting a reptilian mouth, and he's suddenly on the wrong side of it. Starts trying to destroy the creature, of course, but nothing he does meets any resistance.

Wherever he is, it doesn't look like the inside of any snake he's ever been swallowed by.

It is green and lush here. Prairie, wildflowers, blue sky with fluffy white clouds. Birds with hats, over there.

The birds yell at him. "MURKROW!"

In fact, they seem annoyed. As he gets closer they scream more. More of them join the flock from other areas.

And then they start attacking him. With weird hat bird magic.

They do not appreciate the metallic pellets! They scream at him and attack him some more.

They are annoyed, even injured, by the metal, but there are a lot of them and they seem pretty tough compared to what one might normally expect of birds (even ones wearing hats).

There is a wide variety of weird hat bird magic in play. The battlefield gets hazy; they stare him down with hate in their eyes. One of the tougher, faster weird hat birds screams a particularly nasty scream right in his face.

Weird hat bird magic occurs.

He is no longer particularly fast or strong.

Weird hat birds attack him furiously!

Well, the hat birds can and do fly. They chase him.

Eventually an electric-sparking mammalian quadruped, mostly blue, charges in, yowling. The birds become frightened and fly away.

A human, following the creature as it chases away the hat birds, yells something in an unfamiliar language, sounding pleased.

The human flings a red-and-white ball.

The ball makes him sleepy and not very cognizant of time passing or his body (failing to do its customary amount of) existing, but he is not literally unconscious.

Eventually the sensation of having been injured disappears.

And then he is let out! He is in a wooden building being peered at by a bunch of teenagers.

They talk. To each other, not to him, in a language he's never heard before.

They peer at him. They don't seem to speak those languages. One of the teenage girls says something and then walks away.
the_very_best: (h ~ well then)

[personal profile] the_very_best 2015-03-27 04:05 am (UTC)(link)
The girl giggles.

The teenager who walked away comes back with yet another teenager whose hair floats in a nongravitic manner around his head. This person peers at their visitor too, with a look of great concentration.

My friends here think you may be intelligent but not speak our language.
