“I suppose I better ring up The Huckster. Quick, easy information.”

Hucka D.:

You think I’m not real, don’t you. What did you call it earlier[ today]? Controlled schizophrenia?

bb:

Yeah. But not even that much control. That’s because you’re not a classic-type character. You blend into me too easily. It’s bad writing. But it’s good writing as well, because of that quick, easy info I mentioned.

Hucka D.:

You should flesh me out. Let me breath.

bb:

You’re fleshed out as a bee. Anthropomorphic Bee.

Hucka D.:

Cool word! Can I try? An-thro-po-mor-phic. Anthropomorphic. Nice. Nifty. Yes, that’s what I am. Half bee, half amphibian.

bb:

Er… never mind. So Huckster. Hucksteradoobie. What will we talk about tonight?

Hucka D.:

Well there’s always the continued development of the Pietmond TV series, canceled only last year as I understand.

bb:

Yes, I think we’re up episode 3, where the townspeople watch the 2 sides of Oz as one. But it starts out in Oz. Pretty cool, Hucka D. Think that’s the way it is suppose to be.

Hucka D.:

Yes it switches back to Pietmond, and the Lyra cube, the one being sliced for the film, turns into the Fuchsia Diamond. 32 sided. Almost round but not quite. Very clear, very glinty. Maybe not even that much pink. Maybe just one pink.

bb:

Warren allows Peter to take it home if he makes the entrance to his house non-phantom while inside. Locks the house, in other words.

Hucka D.:

Warren has to show him how to do this, so naive he is. Peter never locked his doors before. So he sticks it in a corner and low and behold it starts talking to him. “3 minutes before sim restart. Please save all work”. “Sim?” he asks aloud. “What is a sim?” Then “1 minute before sim restart. Please save all work.” You see, Peter doesn’t really know that there are powers that be, the Lindens, who rule this world.

bb:

Are the Lindens already here in Pietmond, then?

Hucka D.:

No, actually. Maybe it just recites some nonsense. But it does talk to him. Certain of that.

bb:

Maybe it tells him about Pitchfork.

Hucka D.:

He runs down to Warren’s Gerbils & More and looks at fountains around back. No, sorry, he runs down to Warren’s…

bb:

… and gets him to tell him about the Pitchfork matching diamond. It’s shifted.

Hucka D.:

The sim does restart… brown out… and then when it comes back online everything is gushing and oozing blood. Like he’s in hell. Pitchfork. But only briefly. He runs down to Warren’s and Warren tells him he must log off and back on, and that Pitchfork has been activated, which is a bad, bad thing. “Everything is gushing and oozing blood!” Peter exclaims. “I’ll say it’s bad!” Warren admits to him he doesn’t know how to log off and on, and that he will have to go across the road to Aotearoa to visit John The Butcher to get more advise. But he is not a very kind soul, although his physical appearance is quite attractive. He lives in the blood red house. His head is shaped like a heart and his soul is a knife cutting off this heart head. He is love and vile in one. It is the Vileness Fish come for Sapphire[ once more].

bb:

*He* caused it.

Hucka D.:

Yes, Peter must go on across the road to the man with the blood red head for a heart and seek advise. Peter knows instantly that he is the one doing the gushing. Jointly they go up to the well house on the hill, perhaps an 8-sided affair. The well is gushing blood, seemingly. Ao, as he is known to townspeople (and later the sim is named for him), says that Peter must do the turning off himself, and it won’t work otherwise. Peter finds the handle very hard to turn — in fact he can’t turn it. Ao turns it off easily, but immediately turns it back on, saying Peter must turn it off and not him. Peter is understandably miffed; attempts again. Goes outside and looks for an object to give leverage. Ao doesn’t offer to help with the search, but suggests he go back into Pietmond to find something. Peter walks back across the road into Otaki Gorge, and thoughts cross his mind that this is another town joke on him, like with Ticky Bill in episode 1. Is Ao the real Ticky Bill? he ponders.

bb:

They call him the Crimson King. He was an artist living in Second Life. Ao the Crimson King. Perhaps with a blood red band.

Hucka D.:

But Peter doesn’t go back to Ao’s well house immediately. Thinks everything will resolve on its own. But all the “blood” finally gets to him again and he runs across the road, banging on Ao’s door. “Turn the bloody thing off! Just do it! I can’t!”. The blood suddenly stops. The nearby cypress trees, all transparent textures, are transparent again.

bb:

Ao is the same as Oa, isn’t he. With a Tear in the middle, perhaps a rip, perhaps a drop of water emitted from an eye.

Hucka D.:

A vortex opens. Peter sees into the heart of Aotearoa, future. He sees a garden, a path, a rose, a man. Blood red and smiling. Smelling the rose, absorbing the rose with his nose. Nose of Rose, then. In a garden by a path in the sink. He sets the broken stem containing the rose on the path. It turns white. He is gone.

bb:

Peter has met Dr. Blood for real.

Hucka D.:

Dr. Blood, yes.
