I’m hoping that the Gizmorn will feel that attacking is now much too much trouble since the chance of others getting involved is rapidly becoming assured! and Big is showing some character too – not just a lap dog anymore!
I think that we’re getting very close to the exciting conclusion of our “what if” tale. Be sure to check back to read the poem when it arrives in the comments!
UPDATE: Yes! It’s here!! Read the comments for the story 🙂
Important! (especially if you’re Tom) Don’t read below until you’ve formed your own idea of the image.
OK here’s my theory… The birds of the island are suffering from some kind of environmental malady which causes them to lose the ability to fly. The Brogga-dan-oan are trying to help. They recognize that flying is a joyous thing for the birds so when they first see signs of the illness, they catch them and take them flying/walking. Otherwise, within a few days, the birds would fall – likely into the ocean – becoming food for fish. The Brogga-dan-oan are trying to figure out what is causing it and restore flight to the ones who have lost it… but this is just one option – we’ll see if Tom comes up with some completely different reason for the strange goings on a-shore a volcanic island…
