Two Suns Rough Cut

Journal Entry: Thu Feb 19, 2015, 2:48 PM


I say "rough cut" because the transitions have annoying artifacts and there is more jaw-flapping than I actually needed, but that can be trimmed for the final edit. But here it is.

NOTE: This is derived from the "Swept Away" RP continuity which started in 2007 and has continued in various forms and spinoffs ever since, first on the old Hillbilly Hell forum and presently in Wingnut City. I'm sure it's not the first or only "Humans in the Carsverse" thing that ever came up, but boy, has it had staying power. By the in-RP timeline, the events of Planes 2 would be taking place perhaps 6 years after the humans' arrival.

**********

By the red light of the small flashlight, Mii'auww withdrew a plastic-wrapped packet from one of her saddlebags. She had decided to mark her first full day and night here with the luxury of an "A-pack" meal, one of a small box of rations the elders had given her, among other things, prior to her going on passage, to be used if nothing else could be had. She had taken four, but hadn't touched them yet. It wasn't the Nomad way to eat too heavily while on the move. The Mountain people had had years of such shelf-stable food packed away, apparently, before the "blowup" and the deployment of the "elevator" device that had brought their mountain and all inside it to this timeline.

Over the years, Mii had taken lunches with the Mountain children, after the morning classes, and there were some things she had grown to like; pasta was one of them. She doubted that the "Creamy Chicken Tetrazinni" was anything like what was served in the Mountain dining hall, but it was better than raw roots and greens in a fireless camp. She loaded the heating bag, then poured in the salt water solution that would get things bubbling. Off to the right, N'sheki was picketed in the corner of the remains of the stone foundation that now served as their shelter. The mare was munching on red clover that Mii'auww had foraged for her as darkness fell and Nick headed back to the base to see how a certain would-be trainee had fared. Above, clouds were gathering. There was no aerial firefighting activity more than thirty minutes past sunset, that was the rule according to the ghost. Mii would be reasonably safe going down to the meadows to graze her mare and refill her canteen - but not right now.

While the tetrazinni was heating, Mii poured the contents of a lemonade-flavored electrolyte packet into the canteen, closed it and shook it. She already had crackers, peanut butter, raisins and "Smarties" laid out. After the last week and a half, she had noted a bit of a weight loss, in her and her mount, and they both needed to recover calories, even if the raisins were a trifle too metallic in flavor for Mii's liking. Despite the dry conditions, the grass down by the river banks was lush and green enough, and would sustain N'sheki as long as she wasn't too terribly taxed for the next few days. Thank the Lady that mares are quiet. Even if Taki could've made the trip, he'd be calling out all over the place.

Once things were heated up, Mii'auww heaped the tetrazinni onto the crackers. She had never been keen on the mountain people's eating utensils, finding this more convenient. She let N'sheki have the peanut butter and the sugar from the accessory pack that came with the rations; the mare accepted them eagerly. At least she was enthusiastic about something. The smarties were saved for last, chocolate being something else that Mii had come to appreciate. As she finished the last of it, it occured to Mii that Nick had been gone a good while, and she wondered just what he'd have to tell when he returned. But having had the fullest meal in what seemed like eternity, it felt like the next thing in order would be a good sleep, at least a few hours' worth. She had already set paracord across the surrounding trees. If any creature crossed it, it would tug at her hand. She had already seen "Deere" tracks in the surrounding area, and didn't really want to find out if there was anything bigger, or worse out there.

A few hours later, Mii'auww awoke to the sound of crashing thunder. N'sheki was shifting nervously and pawing. Nick was beside her again, flickering. "Just dry lightning." he said. "No rain coming down, though everybody wishes there was. It'll probably start another fire in the bigger valley."

"Why not in this one?" Mii asked.

"This one gets a little more moisture, as it gets the full benefit of the prevailing winds." the spark answered. "Those canyon walls between? They create a rain shadow, making V6 valley tinder-dry in the summer. If you ask me, they shoulda built the Damned Futile Lodge over here instead, but y'know, the other place is bigger and prettier."

"So what kind of excitement did you see at the base?

"Well, you'll be relieved to know that Dusty didn't get his prop ripped off by the chief." Nick also sounded rather gratified. "Dusty's not a totally stupid guy, just over-eager and gets caught up in the moment a little too much. He's a bit taller than he was, now that they put pontoons on him. And they'll gave him "the initiation" soon enough.

"Initiation?" Mii frowned slightly.

"They showed tapes of our old show, played the "hoist" game with it. Maru - the mechanic - keeps these hidden away for occasions like this. It sounds wierd, but in its own perverse way, it kinda shows the newbies what lines not to cross with Blade.  As for Blade, he just goes off and broods on the overlook while politely pretending those bootlegs don't exist. They never did a real DVD release of our show, because the executive producer passed on and his heirs are fighting over his estate, including all his TV properties. Until that case is resolved, an official release won't happen. Blade kind of hopes the greedy bastards go on fighting, the last thing he wants is renewed interest in CHoPs and  "Where is Blazin' Blade Ranger now?" He's got enough to deal with in the park superintendant, thanks very much."

"I saw a white car go up the road to the base just after they landed at noontime. Looked like a real self-important type. Was that the man?"

"Yeah, Mr. Tailpipe himself, Cad Spinner." Nick affirmed. "Guy's all about the lodge, and VIP's and parties, and schmoozing with the rich, famous and mighty. Couldn't give an airborne intercourse for the rest of the park, least of all the firefighters.  Nothing says "I love you guys" like diverting eighty percent of the fire control budget into a super-opulent makeover of the lodge."

"Ugh." Mii reached down, grabbing a handful of soil and pine needles and rubbing it all between her fingers, then sniffing it. Assessing soil condition and vegetation was part of the skillset of every one of her people. "If it's this dry here, with the odd bit of rain coming in, I can't imagine what it must be like on the other side of the ridge. If the least of what you say is true, and I've no reason to doubt you now, Nick, this man shouldn't be in charge of a dungheap, let alone a park."

"I think it was his mother." Nick sniffed dismissively.

"What about his mother?"

"His mother had a lot of connections. Knowing and working all the right people can get you things, sure, but once you're there..."

"You need to know what to do with it."

"Exactly."

"How long has he been in charge?"

"Five years."

"And nothing really bad has happened yet?"

"Sheer luck." Nick flashed. "But this is an unusually long dry spell, and it could be... well, his undoing." there was a sound of exhaling. "Just hope it isn't everyone else's undoing as well. Speaking of... I still wanna hear about how you met the esteemed Dusty Crophopper BEFORE he became famous."

"It was three years ago." Mii'auww answered. "I was out watching the sheep, and we kids had just been given walkie-talkies. I heard that an old woman had gone missing from the mountain, she was over eighty years old, and she had... " Mii struggled slightly to remember the word, "dementia, that's it. She didn't even really know that the world around her was not the one she'd been born in. Well, anyway, she managed to get out and wander off, and everyone was in a panic. They asked everyone in the area to be on the lookout, and that went out on the aviation band as well."

"OK." Nick's spark "nodded" slowly. "So that's how Dusty would have got wind of this?"

Mii nodded back. "Uh-huh, yes. Our radios couldn't transmit on the aviation band, but they could monitor it. Just then I hear "Crophopper Seven" saying that he'd spotted a human woman wandering towards some cliffs, and he was concerned that she might fall over one. He happened to be flying southeast on some business for his boss, that's how he happened to be there that day. What he did next - well, it would be crazy, for a plane. He decided, then and there, to land. There was an old stretch of road going through, hardly anyone used it now. That's where he came down. He was going to see if he could stop this old lady before she got to the cliff's edge and found her death there."

Nick "hmmm'd". "Somehow... from what I saw today, that doesn't surprise me. He feels a lot, gets swept up. Only a guy like that would go so far."

"Well, somehow he gets to her, and kind of herds her away from the cliffs. She's got dementia, she's mostly blind, she doesn't even realize who or what is talking to her. But he manages to steer her away from the danger zone. I checked my map and figured out that it wasn't too far from where we were guarding sheep, and I left them to my brothers while I rode off to this place with the cliffs. I'd been there once before. Our people take on responsibilities a lot younger than the mountain children do."

"So I figured."

"I met them there. It was still early spring, wet and blustery, and the old woman was shivering. If the cliffs hadn't gotten her, exposure would've done it eventually. I gave her the tea in my canteen that was still warm, and my cloak. Dusty had shielded her from the wind and rain, but he could only do so much."

"He did buy her time, though." Nick interjected.

"He did do that. And the lady's family was very happy for it." Mii opened that selfsame canteen and took another swig of lemonade-tinged water. "The planes at the mountain invited Dusty back there to have something warm to drink before he went on. So he met other humans, but she and I were the first. I already know you aircraft, you don't ever forget the smell of the first humans you meet. Sure as hell he'd still remember mine."

"Which makes our business a bit more... complicated." Nick conceded.

"I know how to mask scent, but it's more work." Mii'auww lay back on her bedroll again. "Damn it, he's a sweet man, but we didn't need this."

"We'll just have to be a bit more careful." Nick's spark rose tentatively above the foundation walls. As long as the wind blows right, and Wally doesn't hear, we should be OK.

After we wrapped up our show at the Corn Festival, we still had some time to kill before going home. This year's festival, I understand, was a bit different -- the humans had a bigger presence, setting up a display in a field just beyond the limits of the town. They had brought more of their animals in - their horses, goats and cattle, their feathered birds, some dogs and cats, all for us to see. I already knew their closest local associate, a Skyraider of the Raven tribe by the name of Kathleen - from years back - but we h

Mii'auww tore off another mouthful of jerky while she held down the dog-eared map with her free hand. A copy of this map, about 4' x 3', had been distributed to every child who attended classes at Ash Mountain. The lightpoint hovered over it, blue-white-bright in the dark of the tent, then traced a path from the Raven tribe lands, where Ash Mountain was situated, to a place designated as a "national park", though the girl had only a passing concept of what THAT was. Between was a distance of several hundreds of miles. "THIS 4 OFF RO

On the fifth day, Mii'auww awoke just before daybreak, to find Nick's spark dancing above her nose. "MI, PCKG 4 U," he signed.
"What?" Mii'auww sat up and rubbed the sleep from her eyes. She pulled her tent flap aside and viewed the small nylon bag just a few feet away. "Can't be from anyone in the clan, we're not supposed to see anyone else during this time. "Did you see who left it?"
"JST A SHDW, HID WELL." Nick flitted outside as Mii'auww retrieved the bundle. He continued to hover about as the girl pulled at the drawstring o

In general, horses have much better night vision than humans. N'sheki seemed to have no problems racking down a dirt trail on a moonless night with only starlight for her retinas to capture. Oh, and the light of Nick, of course. They had camped in hidden places during the daylight hours, well off the path. Now and then, between napping and foraging, Mii'auww had caught glimpses of off-roaders passing by, and hoped they hadn't spotted any tracks; usually they were traveling too fast to take note of what was being obliterated under th

**********

"She did WHAT?" Mii'auww's brows lifted in incredulity as Nick related the nocturnal antics of one of Blade's team, "The Yellow One" - Dipper.

"She's CAMPED OUT beneath Dusty's window, both these nights." Nick's tone was a mix of astonishment and exasperation as his spark followed Mii and her mare back up the slope, into the woods, in the dark of the small hours. "That stunt she pulled with her float wasn't enough for her. Dips is a classic "groupie" through and through - if it's famous, fixed-wing and male, she turns into a super-powered being called Velcro Girl! I knew that the minute I first saw her, but hanging by Dusty's window and watching him sleep?! That borders on "creepy".

"Not just on the border, but living there." Mii'auww jerked at N'sheki's bridle as the mare attempted to grab one last mouthful of grass. Ideally, she should have grazed a little longer, but in high summer, night's concealment was short in duration. There were also a few Deere sharing the meadow with them, who nibbled at the grass with little concern once they figured that the newcomers were no threat. Mii swiped her free hand at a loose lock of hair, she would have to rebraid again. She had already had the "birds" tugging at her hair at least twice the previous day. The balsa thrushes had never before encountered humans, so they didn't register in the little creatures' profile of "things to be afraid of." Mii reckoned that strands of her blue-black hair were already adorning nearby nests. "Too bad your people have noses and ears like hunting hounds. It might've been fun to hide there and watch. How is Dusty managing otherwise?"

"Off to a rough start." the blue mote sighed. "Too high, too low, too fast, too slow... and then that episode with the campers, all fun and games until somebody gets a faceful of mud and it all gets back to the super. Y'know, Dipper's bad enough but the Spinmeister is even worse for chasing the stars." His tone changed. "CROPSLINGAAAAHH!" Seriously. If you stripped that guy's paint off, there'd be nothing left of him, that shallow." Mii'auww shrugged and mumbled something in response. There was very little, she'd found, that would silence Nick when he was on a roll.

Finally they were safely back within the old cottage's foundation walls, and Mii tethered the mare in her corner with the armful of grass she'd cut during that limited grazing time. She'd also gathered some berries and cattails that would serve for an early breakfast. The stalks took some cutting and peeling, but the core at the lower end was edible. Nick had gotten over his latest "roll" and seemed to settle. For once, he wasn't teasing the mare. His behavior had gotten a bit more careful over the last day. He'd told her of other entities inhabiting the park. Was he trying not to rouse them? Mii'auww lay back on her bedroll and sought a bit more sleep. Two hours to the dawn...

Above the cataract of Upper Whitewall falls, just a short hike beyond the falls' edge, there was a cairn of stones rising some twenty feet above the river's west bank. This pile of rocks was topped by a massive propeller with four broad blades, partially scorched. Before it was mounted a small plaque which read thus:

WALLACE EVERETT THRESHER

1957-1993

REMEMBERED BY THE PISTON PEAK NATIONAL PARK AND AIR ATTACK TEAM

"REST WELL, WALLY"

But resting, well or not, was the last thing this man's spirit was intent on doing. When he was roused, trees shook, dirt flew and interlopers found themselves swatted by well-aimed branches. Those with a long acquaintance of the park refrained from disturbing the area beyond the edge of the falls, and discouraged ground vehicles from going there. Aircraft who ventured beyond Augerin Canyon were given a grudging tolerance as long as they didn't fly too low. It wasn't talked about, but it was one of the things that people commonly agreed was Just. Not. Done.

So, for the most part, what remained of Wally was undisturbed. But this morning, the spirit sensed smoke before its sight and scent reached those at the base. It rattled around in frustration, and the trees shook. The shaking went on for another half hour, while it watched the air attack team flying in. The reverberations, physical and otherwise, were sufficiently strong as to make Nick pause as he followed Mii'auww up the ridge that separated the valleys. Before that, in the minutes after sunrise, he'd watched her rebraid her hair. On the nomads' native steppes, the wind would whip unchecked hair into knots in no time. Here, there wasn't so much wind, but the thrushes were still assaulting stray hairs at every opportunity. Mii ignored them; in the Nomad way, small hurts and irritations were simply things to be shrugged off as a horse shook its hide to ward off flies.

Just short of the ridgeline, Mii dismounted and led N'Sheki through the same narrow pass she'd found earlier, plucking a few more wild plums as she went. The scanner, turned down low, murmured the firefighters' transmissions. The wind was blowing south, not in a direction that would concern her with regards to Dusty's nose, but she was a bit surprised to see him being permitted to join the team in its firefighting efforts after the comedy of errors that summed up his training session of the previous days, all played out for her eavesdropping pleasure.

Well, it WOULD have been sort of funny for anyone who wasn't personally involved.

"We'd better watch it today," Nick's voice cut in. "Wally's up."

"I thought I felt something stomping around." Mii'auww frowned. "Recall you mentioning he had a problem with you."

"He just has problems, period." the spirit sniffed. "Opinionated, some would say a wee bit "bigoted". Not a people person. Few friends outside the team when he was among the living. A small vehicle can get away with being a little "antisocial" in our fair society, but a P-3 Orion with that attitude just scares the slag out of people. He'd been military, like Cabbie, but with a "dismissal" on his record, there weren't many other places that would take him. He never told anybody why he'd been cashiered, but I kind of guessed it was some "ungentlemanly conduct" at a drinking establishment."

"P-3 Orion." Mii sounded out the model name. "Haven't seen one named as such. Big, are they?"

"BIG four-engine turboprops." Nick affirmed. "Can fly for hours with only two of them going. They were coastal patrol and sub-hunting 'craft. But they also convert well as air tankers and whatever Wally's personal shortcomings, his humungous lifting power and load capacity made up for it as far as the team was concerned. He might've hated the world's collective guts, but he was a good firefighter. That's what Blade says whenever the subject comes up."

While Nick was going on, Mii watched the aircraft skirling about in the distance. Two days was a damned short time for a greenhorn to get on his proverbial feet. The new "SEAT" was, apparently, still testing the air boss's patience, mistiming the drop of his load and forcing others to make up for it, most notably the green skycrane, but Windlifter didn't seem to show any particular resentment. Indeed, it was hard to tell exactly what that big fellow was thinking. Dipper, for all her own flaws, did, in fact, show proof of a work ethic and an ability to keep her mind on business when it really mattered. As Nick's chatter finally broke back into her awareness, Mii'auww lowered the binoculars and stowed them back, sighing. "Dealing with you and him and any others would be a hell of a lot easier if I could just SEE you."

"Oh... yeah." Nick's voice dropped a bit. "Something else you have to do?"

"Something I NEED." Mii rummaged through her personal carry-bag. "Got everything but ONE item. We call it "nashuii", the mountain people have a form of it that they call "cinnamon". It's not quite as strong as the stuff we used to know, but Grandmother says it'll work if there's enough of it. She's been able to see local spirits that way, those that don't mind talking to her."

"And how do you use this stuff?" Nick sounded a little dubious.

"Mix it with a couple of other things, and burn it." Mii answered. "After all the right things are said and done. Wish I'd thought to pack some, but when I was first starting passage I wasn't expecting... this."

Nick was silent for a moment. "Cinnamon is a pretty common spice here. Just a sec." There was a stirring as his spirit left Mii's side. The spark disappeared below the treeline, and many minutes passed. After fifteen minutes, he was back again, looping and circling. "OK Mii, I got good news and bad news. Good news is, there's cinnamon right on the park grounds, in stick form. Now for the BAD news... it's at... the lodge. At the coffee bar that Spinner-boy just put in, Piston Perks. I wish I coulda brought some back, but I can't move #$% slag as a ghost."

Mii'auww hugged her knees as she heard this. "Can't let THIS situation go on, and can't go down there either. Damn it all."

"Well..." Nick was thoughtful. "You could, but you'd have to be sneaky about it." His attention went back to the fire. "Think they've got it contained now, but it looks like the jumpers will be camping there."

"I know." Mii had her ear to the scanner. "Sounds like Dusty had some better luck just now. He finally managed to let some of that stuff down in the right place."

"Good for him." Nick sniffed. "Say, I've got an idea. If you saddled up now and took the long route around, enough to skirt that burned area and where the smokejumpers are camped out, you could make it to the lodge by the time of the party."

"WHAT party?"

"The one Spinny-pie invited Dusty to. Lots of people going in and out - Mii, I know what you're about to say just from "that look", I know it sounds insane, but with all the hubbub going on, it'll be enough to screen your movements as long as you stay in the shadows. and all the criss-crossing scents will mask yours. And if anybody starts to wonder, I've just enough juice in me to create at least a little diversion."

"I know, but this isn't like sneaking cookies from the Ash Mountain bakery with the other kids. And I haven't done THAT since I was ten years old." Mii stifled her previous expression, put the scanner away, and rose to her feet. She lifted her fingers to her mouth and sounded out a low whistle; the mare came up the path to join them. Mii gave N'sheki the contents of one of the sugar packets hoarded from the meal pack. "And when Mama finds out... she'd be convinced there's no coming back from it." She went over her gear, on her person and on the saddle, one more time. "I dunno how I get talked into these things."
