By the Lake at Kellerman's, Thursday Afternoon
What Jonothon knew about canoeing could be summed up in very few words: There is a boat. There are paddles. Somehow, you use one in order to propel the other, and pray you don't fall in.

Not that he was particularly worried about falling in. Fears of drowning were pretty much obliterated along with his need to breathe. And anyhow, there were lifejackets. Lifejackets which, he had to note, looked absolutely ridiculous.

//The bright orange'll be a good look on yer, luv,// he mused, leaning over the edge of the wharf to peer into the canoe.

[For the daaaate. Stuck here so as to not risk breaking the Kellerman's posts. I'm done spamming the flist today, promise!]

//The same weird world where ancient Irish castles get eaten by sentient mist,// Jono reported, attempting a few more strokes in the vain hope that they could steer around that rock. //And, yer know... Deadpool.//

'Deadpool' was pretty much all that one needed to state in order to properly summarize the full extent of the weirdness that his world could achieve.

Oh, 616.

"Deadpool," Didi echoed wryly. "He's one of yours, huh?"

Oh, that might be fun. Just like the rock that they were still drifting toward.

//I'd never had the particular pleasure of meeting him, until I found myself here,// Jono replied, and now his paddling was slightly more urgent. Breaking the canoe would be bad. //But he seems to know who I am. Even if he can't hear me speak.//

Which was weird, if you asked Jono. But then, Jono had somewhat unique measures of weird, from time to time.

Didi reached out with her paddle to shove them off the bank and,hopefully, away from the rock.

"See, he just thinks I'm his ex-girlfriend," Didi said. "That was even weirder than the girl whose mom is me in bizarro world."

Didi had her own special values for weird.

... Actually, that was pretty weird. Jono certainly had to concede defeat on that one.

//I know there are alternate worlds well enough by now, and I suppose that it only makes sense that there would be a Death for those ones as well, but yes, that does seem... odd.//

Very odd. Huh.

//Fandom Island certainly attracts an interesting variety, doesn't it?//

"The whole world's pretty weird if you look at it right, but Fandom's like ... a country's worth of weird in a few hundred people," Didi said.

They were drifting away from the rock now. This was Victory.

It was absolutely Victory, which meant that Jonothon could stop paddling like his life depended on it. Truly.

//It probably picks and chooses. Wakes up at th'beginning of each new semester and wonders to itself, now, how in th'world could it possibly make life a little more insane for its residents?//

"So what are you expecting when we get back from break?" Didi asked, padding more slowly so they could drift for a bit. "I'm rooting for an invasion of something that glows in the dark."

//Well, that's a pretty open-ended category,// Jono noted. //I glow in th'dark.//

Yes, that was absolutely a smirk he was attempting, right there.

"Then I doomed us," Didi said, trying to sound resigned. "An invasion of Jonos, thinking at us in cute accents."

//Oh, no, anything but that.// He held up one hand, as though to shield himself from the oncoming threat. //Won't anything protect us from such horror?//

All that black leather!

"I think we'd have to build a really big music store," Didi decided. "They'd all end up there eventually, right?"

//Each and every last one of 'em,// Jono agreed. //Make it big enough and point out what's become of MTV, and they might never leave.//

And then all would be saved!

"So what would you do if a bunch of Didis invaded?" Didi wondered. "No going for the ankh. That's cheating."

//If the island were to be overrun by Didis, who's to say I'd want to be rid of them?// He leaned his head back slightly, making a big show of thinking it over. //If the population of Fandom happened to be depending on me for heroics in that department, I daresay we'd all be doomed to an overwhelming combination of cute smiles and good company.//
