Twist em up a tune

Someone shoved a many-times folded piece of paper into Eloise's hand, as she made her way through the crowd. She unfolded it, slowly, and glanced at the message, before reading it aloud. She wrinkled her long nose.

It seemed like gibberish to her, and for a brief moment, she was afraid that Sweetheart had opened a portal to another dimension again. But someone had written Announcement across the top in bold letters, so Eloise shrugged and announced:

Writers who have lost their comments should look in the pro_fun community, and claim them, there. Bookmarking the community is a good idea, too, if you feel you are getting lost, here.


Confused murmurs rippled through the audience.

"I don't understand it, either, folks," Eloise said, with a chuckle. "I just read em! Now, are you ready for another dance?" A few people clapped, and for them, Eloise put her fiddle to her shoulder and began to play a tune that many would have said sounded like "Turkey in the Straw":

Oh there is a story I must tell.
Went vortex surfing and it didn't go well
The time rotor sputtered and the console jumped.
I said "dey-dey!" to my bicycle pump!

Travel through space, travel through time!
Travel through space, travel through time!
Roll em up and twist 'em up a high-stepping rhyme
And twist 'em a tune called "travel through time"!


She was about to start the second verse, when the air was filled with a squeezing, wheezing noise, like an accordian with ashma and only two working keys. Her first thought was: TARDIS. Her second thought was: oh, no! not again!

Estandre must have had a similar thought, for he came dashing into the dance hall from the hallway leading back to the kitchen.

Eloise's third thought was to scan the crowd and count specific heads: Ten, Nine, Eight Four ... Three, Seven, Two, Five, One, Six. Well they were all here... so: who?

Just then, the arriving TARDIS finished its materialization -- and if she hadn't been looking in just the right spot at the right time, sshe would have missed it, too: there was a new crystal bauble hanging from the chandelier above the dessert buffet.

[OOC -- Sorry guys. I felt it was time that someone brought the plot. It's not usually me, but we've got a smaller crew, this time, I think.]
