Anne: But there's… there's something moving around up there.
Jocelyn: [laughs] Oh, that was probably me. My apologies if I caused any undue stress.
Anne: Do you roar and shoot flames at people?
Jocelyn: Only when I miss my midmorning tea. [chuckles] I'm kidding, dear, of course. But come, we mustn't dillydally.
There are two kinds of adventure:
1) The kind that involves unicorns and lollipops.
2) The kind that involves escaping from a prison-like orphanage, falling off an exploding mountain, and getting fireballed by a dragon (or possibly eaten by a zombie shark).
This is a story about the second kind.
