Well, we've barely been introduced, but under these circumstances... heyup!
Alright, now exactly how fast does Hell run?

Down that way, to the North Wing - it isn't as wrecked as the open-air rooms.

I do have a rather solid object here that could batter it down... but I doubt that Miss Adler would appreciate it afterwards.
So since I can't put her down anywhere without these critters getting hold of her, might I suggest you hurry?

I believe I've smashed enough tentacles to give us some breathing room.  Oh, look

Is she? It's hard to tell when she's draped over one's shoulder... hmmmm, well, she's mumbling something back there... perhaps she's saying something in her sleep.

I say, I don't suppose either of you cephalopod-gourmets happen to have a not-so-secret-North-Wing-key amongst all those spice-jars, by any chance?

Why didn't you say old chap?

*carefully ferrets around Ms.Adler's tender scalp, produces hairpin and wiggles it in the Not-So-Secret-North-Wing-Door-Keyhole.

*door opens, releasing a warm musty smell...

there you go, we'll be along as soon as lunch is over! Pass the Chablis please Cubinoid, there's a good fellow.

Closes the door and pushes a chair against it to prevent the door, which is bulging slightly, from opening. A tentacle slimes through the keyhole, which Cubinoid deftly puts a little sock puppet on.

There is a reason for this. And trust me, when a bunch of harry potter geeks think your fucking retarded, you know there is something wrong.

*crashes in from somewhere up above, stands up, adjusts hat, pats the dust from the bib-front and chaps*

"Glad to know the anti-gravity spurs are working, but I reckon I ought to work on the landing."

*looks around, sees sock-puppet topped tentacle*

"Sorry I'm late everyone.  These darn things," *points to copper spurs* "still have a few kinks to work out.  At any rate, I didn't miss the show that none of us are here to see, did I?"

*Of course sir, for you to miss the show that has yet to be thought. You wold have had to do six impossible things by lunch*

*Still pull up a stool or chair and grab a glass, its lunch time. Now would you like some calamari. I hear it goes good with gunpowder.*

Cubinoid is sharpening a carving knife whilst looking at the tentacles seeping through the window.

In my time as an airship crewman, I have negotiated my way out of trouble and I have fought my way out of trouble. But, I still think the best way is to eat your way out of trouble! Any more tentacles, I have some room on the stove now...

Is it me or does the big cephalopod fella look perturbed?  And what is he doing with that lamppost?
