Summary: Where they bring the former sigil-holder to the Springs and find someone along the way.

While the battle raged near the coast, ten people quickly made their way back up the river towards the Blue Guild, hoping that the cover of the trees would shield them from the view of the invaders. Two of them hitched a ride with a Mage; Ford stood in front of Erwan, as his hands were hurt from holding the entity while wearing the modified Teaga gloves (Stan took the gloves off his brother and stuffed them in the pockets of his robe next to his useless hearing aid) and Stan was partnered with another Mage. Between them was a Hover Disc that was stretched longer than Stan and Ford’s Hover Boards; this was done to accommodate Maegella lying down and Gelvin standing up by her feet, steering the Board.

The following evening...

Under the porch light, Stanford sat cross-legged in front of the door, scribbling into his red journal. He just put the finishing touches to the Plaidypus entry when someone spoke.

"Good evening."

“What is he doing?!” Stan shouted as Darreon flew off with his twin. He looked at Gelvin; the Maester was staring in shock at the Green Mage flying towards Mek-Death. Stan walked over to Gelvin and grabbed the latter’s shoulders. “What’s that maniac going to do with my brother?!”

Maegella ignored the outcry from the Mages and raised her arms to the side. From the foot of the statues where she picked up Dipper, four round stones with glowing symbols flew towards her and began to revolve around her just as she started to levitate.

Maegella groaned, lifting herself up on her elbows and shaking her head. She determined that she had no broken bones before carefully sitting up and looking around in the well-lit, stuffy space. Something about the place made her feel nervous. Her staff was lying a few feet away to her left; to her right was a large form dressed in blue robes. She recognized the back of this man’s head…

For midnitedirectives.


"Come on everyone, slap some more glitter paint on the sign!" ordered Stan, while Soos, Wendy and Dipper slapped on a new coat of the paint on the large "Mystery Shack" sign. "I can hear you slacking from here, Wendy!"

"You're not even seeing what we're doing here, Grunkle Stan!" Dipper grumbled, slapping the roller onto the "Y".

"Yeah, what are you doing on the other side of the roof, Stan?" Soos asked curiously as he dipped his roller into the bucket.

"I'm an old man; I'm entitled to taking a break in my own home!" Stan whined. They hear the pop and the fizz of a soda can being opened. "This is the life!"

The Outer Sanctum

“Fiend!” Gelvin growled, his amiable face contorted into a scowl and his staff held stiffly. “Is there no limit to your quest for power?!”

“Power?” Duroc repeated, shaking his head. “My good Maester, I did not do all this for power! I am doing this to save our people.”

Maegella looked at Darreon, still keeping her staff pointed at him. “How do I know this is not a trick?” she asked him.

A floor above the Mystery Shack, a pair of pre-teens are looking at an assortment of items on the floor. Mabel rubbed her hands together in anticipation while Dipper finished writing a checklist on the notepad.

"We're all set," he said, putting down the notepad and looking at his sister. "So, which one do you want to start with?"

Mabel looked at him while fighting to keep her squeals contained.
