2020.09.27 13:00 lenalikesboots A few of my POTO wants

Hi guys!!!
I'm close to completing my POTO video collection! However, for that to happen, I still need a few videos. Hit me up if you have any of these videos:
Phantom Follies Rob Guest, Marina Prior, Dale Burridge, Maree Johnson, Caroline Ferrie 1992; Australia "Australian cast puts on skits and spoofs for charity, runs for over two hours. Some of the skits/parodies: 'Beauty School Dropout,' 'The Three Raoul Amigos,' 'A Charade,' 'I'm Too Sexy,' a rock version of 'Il Muto,' and a rap/dance version of 'Think of Me'."
Brad Little, Elizabeth Southard, Tim Martin Gleason January 11, 2004; Orlando Matinee performance. Three DAT files. Small picture with a lot of washout and fuzziness. Looks like it was filmed by the same person who did the evening performance on the same date. Brad Little's last matinee performance in the national tour
Damian Aleksander, Paulina Janczak/Edyta Krzemien, Marcin Mrozinski/Piotr Domalewski 2008 (?); Warsaw, Poland Various clips, highlights, and trailers from the Polish production, mostly ripped off YouTube. Combination of MP4 and FLV file
Brad Little, Claire Lyon, Anthony Downing Late 2014/Early 2015; Hong Kong, China Poorly shot, very far away video. MP4 files. Lots of blackouts, often not focused on the stage in Act 1, but improves slightly in Act 2.
Dmitry Ermak, Tamara Kotova, Eugeny Zaycev 2015; Moscow, Russia MP4 files, highlights of Act 1 only: Hannibal, 'Think of Me', 'The Mirror', and the title song
Brad Little, Emilie Lynn/Kristi Holden, Anthony Downing 2015; World Tour A bunch of Instagram clips of various scenes and actors from the World Tour. To be gifted.
Hugh Panaro, Sandra Joseph, John Cudia, Jeff Keller, George Lee Andrews, Patricia Phillips, Marilyn Caskey, Larry Wayne Morbitt, Joelle Gates* August 9, 2003; Broadway Rather massive head blocks most of the bottom, but filmer does their best to shoot around it.
Howard McGillin, Rebecca Pitcher, Michael Shawn Lewis, Julie Schmidt (u/s), David Cryer, George Lee Andrews, Marilyn Caskey, Roland Rusinek, Heather McFadden* August 18, 2006; Broadway Terrific quality video, very sharp colors and details. Audio is out of sync starting at 'Angel of Music' but is fixed by the title song.
Absolutely Phantomless April 13, 1995; Australia "The Australian cast of Phantom of the Opera in their annual Easter Charity Concert. Each of Cameron Mackintosh’s Australian shows participates at midnight after their regular performances. These shows feature the cast members parodying songs and other shows, with a slight tilt towards their own productions. Pro-shot for video, these tapes were made for cast and crew only."
Chopper Opera Rob Guest, Danielle Everett, John Bowles April 4, 1996; Sydney, Australia "The Sydney casts of Phantom of the Opera and Miss Saigon feature in this Easter Charity concert. Features "adapted" music from both shows in addition to pop music and songs from other shows. Pro-shot for video but generation loss."
Tomasz Steciuk, Edyta Krzemien, Marcin Mrozinski, Anna Gigiel, Jan Bzdawka, Jakub Szydłowski, Wojciech Socha July 8, 2011; Wieliczka, Poland 5 MP4 files of a concert version of the Polish production. Includes most of the big numbers and limited sets and costumes.
Hugh Panaro, Mary Michael Patterson, Jeremy Hays December 10, 2013; Broadway Highlights, turnofthescorpion's master.

Marcus Lovett, Sofia Escobar, Simon Thomas, Lara Martins, Duncan Smith (u/s), Gareth Snook, Cheryl McAvoy, Jeremy Secomb, Layla Harrison (u/s) March 6, 2013; London 6 minute WMV video, containing parts of 'Think of Me', 'Angel of Music', 'The Mirror', title song, 'Music of the Night', 'Stranger Than You Dreamt It', and 'All I Ask of You'. Blurry shot most of the time, but sometimes clears up, though is not zoomed in. Still, great to see video of Sofia Escobar.
Marcus Lovett, Anna O'Byrne, Simon Thomas April 22, 2013; London Two VOB clips only, 'Music of the Night' and 'All I Ask of You Reprise'. (Note: Image is cropped; it's much taller than it looks here.)
Hugh Panaro, Mary Michael Patterson, Jeremy Hays October 4, 2013; Broadway Turnofthescorpion's master. Starts from 'Wandering Child', mostly blindshot. MT2 file.
James Barbour, Ali Ewoldt, Jordan Donica July 15, 2016; Broadway Act 1 only, MP4 file, mostly blindshot.
Phantom Compilation 1 Original review: "San Francisco local news behind-the-scenes segment with Franc D'Ambrosio and Lisa Vroman; Mid-August 1999, All I Ask of You and Music of the Night on Today Show with Ted Keegan, Sarah Pfisterer, and Gary Mauer; 1993, Today Show Broadway 5th anniversary segment with Mark Jacoby, Karen Culliver, etc.; 1993, Michael Crawford interviewed and performing "Since You Stayed Here" on Regis & Kathie Lee and Good Morning America; E!

Phantom Compilation 2 Behind-the-scenes special on the national tour in Buffalo with Ted Keegan and Rebecca Pitcher, mainly in black-and-white, as well as similar behind-the-scenes special in Seattle with similar content (in color) and interviews.
Rob Guest, Maree Johnson, Peter Cousens 1994; Sydney, Australia Midday Special that aired on TV; includes interviews and four proshot songs: 'Music of the Night', 'Prima Donna', 'All I Ask of You', and 'Masquerade'.
Laird Mackintosh (u/s), Mary Michael Patterson, Jeremy Hays January 22, 2014; Broadway Laird Mackintosh's second time as the Phantom on Broadway; includes 'All I Ask of You Reprise', 'Point of No Return', and 'Final Lair'. M2T file.
James Barbour, Kaley Ann Voorhees, Jeremy Hays March 2, 2015; Broadway A bunch of MP4 videos consisting of scattered, generally Christine-oriented highlights. This was uploaded to Instagram live at the performance, so all parts are 15 seconds long. Consists of parts of 'Think of Me', 'The Mirror', title song, 'Music of the Night', rooftop, 'Wishing', 'Point of No Return', and 'Final Lair'. Parts are well-shot (sometimes it looks like the person is right under the cast member!). 
Various Phantom of the Opera-Related Clips Clips all copied off of TV: Steve Barton & Sarah Brightman singing AIAOY live, Sarah Brightman and Steve Harley's concept POTO video, interviews with Michael Crawford during his Phantom run, 1988 Tony Award Presentation to Michael Crawford, Michael Crawford and Dale Kristien performing POTO, Michael Crawford AIAOY duet with Dale Kristien, Michael Crawford in concert performing MOTN, Davis Gaines and Tracy Shayne performing MOTN, German version of MOTN sang on a TV set, German version of POTO Video, PONR with Sarah Brightman and Michael Crawford, Michael Crawford and Sarah Brightman performance at the Tony Awards, Michael Crawford and Dale Kristien – Music of the Night, Sarah Brightman singing MOTN,footage of the OBC at the Majestic Theatre, Robert Guillaume and Dale Kristien – MOTN, Colm Wilkinson singing MOTN, Unidentified Raoul and Christine performing AIAOY, Michael Crawford video of MOTN, interview footage with Steve Barton.
Tim Martin Gleason, Trista Moldovan, Sean MacLaughlin* 2010; Cleveland Not my review: "This documentary aired on August 9, 2010. It includes interviews with the Advance Stage Manager, the Conductor, a Playhouse Square VP, Trista Moldovan and Tim Martin Gleason, and the Wardrobe Supervisor. Also includes footage clips from the current 2010 Phantom cast, filmed here in Cleveland."
Peter Karrie, Teresa DeZarn, Kip Wilbourne 1997; Vancouver, Canada Half hour segment from The Slate on BBC Wales about Peter Karrie's time in the Phantom Canadian production. Includes interviews and proshot clips with the cast at the time, but has some pretty heavy distortion and color bleeding.
Ian Jon Bourg, Alison Kelly, Janine Kitzen, Maike Switzer, Beatrix Reiterer 2000 and onwards; Hamburg, Stuttgart, and Essen, Germany Proshot videos of Ian Jon Bourg performing in-concert with various Christines. About 30 minutes long.
Ian Jon Bourg, Lori Zeglarski (?), Kyle Gonyea 2000 (?); Hamburg, Germany Act 2 only, includes part of the March 31, 1999 video with Jerzy Jeszke, Carla Nicholson, and Bjorn Olsson. Christine was labeled as Colby Thomas, but it looks like Lori Zeglarski. Date is also a guess.
Ian Jon Bourg, Janine Kitzen, Michael Shawn Lewis November 16, 2002; Stuttgart, Germany Monitor video of one of the first shows in Stuttgart, with audio fed in from the soundboard. Decent color and exposure; better than the other two monitor videos that came out of Stuttgart. Filming continues through intermission, so video features 30 minutes of curtains. LIMITED TRADE.
Ian Jon Bourg, Sandra Danyella September 4, 2005; Essen, Germany Promotional outdoor concert for the Essen production, includes 'Wishing', title song, and 'Music of the Night'.
Andrew Lloyd Webber, Cameron Mackintosh, Charles Hart, Gillian Lynne, Richard Stilgoe, Michael Crawford, Sarah Brightman, etc. December 26, 2006; Various Locations Not exactly an online video of the show, but the 'Behind the Mask' special documentary, taken directly off the BBC 2 channel.

  20. Light Hearts (Full Cast Comedy Series) Running a business is hard. Running a business alone in an old, haunted building is even harder. Janine didn't know what she was getting herself into when she opened Prism - but with the help of Ryan (an astronomy professor with a useful knack) and Kale (an artist with a mind for marketing), she manages to stay aloft. Light Hearts follows the daily shenanigans of serving Prism's customers, solving strange problems, and wrangling the occasional unexpected patron.

2016.08.02 23:46 Teslok [PI] Luther's Capsule – 4yrs - 4444 Words

Rocky Point High had finally paved the student lot, giving the area a dreamlike blend of familiar and strange. Enough familiar remained that Janine knew where to go after she pulled her shovel out of the trunk. Gretchen, her daughter, took pictures as they headed to the overgrown patch of forest behind the lot.
They climbed over the knee-high barrier. It made Janine feel fifteen again, a card-carrying member of the Quest Club, filled with the confidence of youth, the uncertainty of adolescence, and the excitement of trying to make her mark on the world.
Twenty years ago, instead of a shovel, Janine had carried a sealed Tupperware bowl, pilfered from her mother’s cabinet, filled with notes and trinkets. Symbols, Secrets and Promises, that was what Luther Drake said they should put in the Capsule.
“Things that matter right now,” he’d said, gesturing with hands that seemed too large on his already lanky frame. “Things that are important to you. Not what you think should be important, but the stuff that you really, truly care about. Things that you’re afraid you’ll forget when you’re a Junior or a Senior. When you’re in college. When you get a job and a house and a mortgage and have kids. This is the last time you’ll still be in touch with the kid you used to be. Next year everything changes.”
She could still remember how Anita scoffed at those instructions, saying that she was looking forward to all of that stuff. Anita was the only one eager to grow up, which to Janine always felt against the spirit of the Quest Club. When Janine messaged her online last week, asking if she was going to meet up at the old Clubhouse Tree, she knew the answer almost as soon as she sent it.
What? You mean that Time Capsule our silly LARP club buried? I bet it’s been paved over.
But the undeveloped lot next to the school was still there, still wild, and though the trees themselves were different, Janine could see paths that students had made into it.
At least Devon hadn’t belittled the matter, but he had to send his regrets--as a new father living halfway across the country, he couldn’t justify the trip. He asked for pictures of the dig, and offered to pay postage if Janine would ship his box to his home address. Shelly rarely logged in, and hadn’t responded. Janine wasn’t sure if she had even seen the message.
Allison and Mike had proven impossible to find; stymied by their last names--Smith and Johnson--Janine had taken to scouring You May Know lists. Their high school didn’t keep directories of former graduates. There hadn’t even been reunions, at least not to Janine’s knowledge.
And as for Luther Drake himself? After he and his mother moved, he seemed to drop off the face of the planet. They were going to Arizona, he told the Club as he and Devon began digging the hole that day. His mom got work with a new internet business, it was going to be big.
Sometimes Janine wondered if he’d even been real. He’d transferred to the school two weeks into the year, brought them together, founded the club, and when he moved the club fell apart like it had never been. Without his boundless energy, without his creative genius for not just making plans but carrying them out, everyone just gradually lost interest in going through the motions.
“Mom, I think somebody’s up there.” Gretchen’s whisper snapped Janine’s attention to the here and now. The girl was holding Janine’s phone to her chest, leaning to look around her distracted mother. The person, obscured by the underbrush, coughed. “There is someone!” she exclaimed. “Is it one of the club people? Is it Luther?”
Janine shook her head. “Don’t think so.”
A voice called from the trees ahead. “What’s the password?” It was deep and male.
Without hesitation, Gretchen shouted the answer in response, “Dragons rescued and maidens slain!” She turned to Janine, “Did I get it right?” she whispered. Janine nodded, smiling. The girl bounced in place, her delight obvious.
“Wait--” The speaker was at a bit of a loss, but went on with the old ritual. “Proceed, friend?” Gretchen squeezed around Janine and charged ahead through the underbrush, Janine following.
The Clubhouse Tree showed signs of its continued use as a teenage meeting place, but Janine hardly noticed, focused on the burly, brown-haired fellow standing next to a camp chair. His build threw Janine off for a moment, but the wide-open grin connected her memory to a younger version of that face.
“Mikey, is that you?”
“Sure is.” The grin somehow broadened. The years had been more kind to him than to the Clubhouse itself, which lay in scattered boards around the old oak’s clearing. “Damn, Janny, is this your little girl? She looks so much like you.” He winked at Gretchen, “But not too much. I remember hating when people always said I looked just like my Dad.”
“This is Gretchen,” Janine gathered her blushing daughter to her side. “Honey, that’s Mikey Johnson, the rogue of the Quest Club.” She moved forward, reaching forward for a brief handshake. “Though you don’t much look the part anymore.”
He laughed. “Yeah. In college I took up weight training. Just to keep in shape, you know? My wife likes it though. It’s real good to see you though, I didn’t think anyone else would make it. You ever hear from the others?”
Janine nodded. “Devon’s got a baby boy. He sends his regrets. Anita …” She glanced away, noticing the ruins of their ramshackle clubhouse in a collapsed heap, half-covered by shrubs.
“Hah, you don’t need to tell me. She laughed it off as a silly kid thing, right? I don’t even know why she was part of the club in the first place.”
“She had a crush on Devon.”
“Oh.” Mikey was silent a moment. Janine could almost see the pieces fitting together in his memory. “That makes sense. More like his family’s money though, I’d think.”
Janine shrugged. “No comment. I found Shelly online too, but she almost never logs in. Didn’t hear back from her. I never found Luther or Allison. Or you, for that matter. There are like fifty different Michael Johnsons in this county alone.”
Mikey laughed. “Yeah. I get tons of mail for Other Mike Johnsons. My online profile is under Mike Sonjohn just so my family can find me.” He paused, hands in his pockets, and looked around. The silence grew awkward for a moment.
He grimaced before speaking. “Janny. I’ll be honest, didn’t even think to try looking for you guys. I just,” he shrugged, “set up a countdown for myself, a sort of promise before I went away to college. I mean, I was the last one here. Did you know that? I showed up every week until Graduation, even though you and all the others stopped coming.” There wasn’t accusation in his voice, just an old sadness. “So I didn’t really think anyone would be here. It would just be me and a shovel.”
He paused a beat, looking between the two of them. “But here, you’ve done more than me, even trying to get in contact with everyone else. And seeing as how the little one here knew the password, it sounds like you did keep the Club alive after all. Janny, I’m sorry. For thinking poorly of you.”
“I’m sorry too.” Janine looked down at her daughter. “But you’re right. Gretchen knows pretty much everything there is to know about the Quest Club. I deputized her as the Club Historian for today, since she wanted so much to be a part of this. If you don’t mind, she’ll take some pictures when we dig up the Capsule. I promised Devon.”
“Sounds great. And if you’re here, well, maybe we should wait until the official time, see if any of the others make it. So, did you tell her about the time Luther threw up?”
“No!” Gretchen’s voice was a little outraged, and she looked at her mother with an expression of near-betrayal.
“I… sorry honey. It’s a story that I, well, I didn’t forget it, but I didn’t want to think about it. If Mikey wants to, he can tell it.” Janine made an exaggerated face. “It’s gross though. Fair warning.”
Even as Mikey launched into the tale, Janine could remember it, as much as she tried not to. The purpose had been to learn how to live off the land, and find edible plants. Using a survival handbook as their guide, they amassed a veritable salad of questionable weeds and leaves. But nobody wanted to eat it. Luther finally grabbed a handful and shoved it into his mouth. Then almost immediately spat it out; he’d crunched into a bug.
Mikey went so far as to imitate Luther’s reaction, clutching his stomach and making realistic retching noises.
As he regaled Gretchen with other misadventures of the Quest Club, Janine walked around the small clearing, still feeling a disconnect between her memories of the Clubhouse Tree and its new reality. The latest generations of teenagers didn’t seem to be builders like the Club, but they’d continued the tradition of pilfering broken school furniture.
Amid this, there were clear signs of recent excavations. Mikey had already pulled away the weeds and clutter from the dig spot, his shovel standing upright in the center of the bare patch. He hadn’t started digging--maybe her arrival had interrupted him just as he was about to start.
Engaged in a tale about their Recycling Adventure, Mike and Gretchen didn’t notice when another person entered the clearing. Janny went to meet the woman, quickly recognizing her from her online photographs. “Shelly!” Recalling Mikey’s greeting, she added, “What’s the password?”
Somehow, Shelly still had an aura of perpetual distraction. But her attention came into focus and she smiled at Janny. “Dragons rescued. Maidens slain. Good to see you, Janine.”
“Same. I wasn’t sure if you’d make it, I tried messaging you online.”
Shelly waved a hand dismissively, “I forget to check social media. Should have given you my e-mail or something. But I wouldn’t miss this for the world.”
“Great. We have Mikey over there, with my daughter Gretchen. Devon can’t make it, sends his regrets, Anita--”
“Has better things to do than walk on Nostalgia Road, I’m sure,” Shelly dismissed the Club’s most dramatic member immediately. “Alley is coming though. Married my cousin. She’s running a little late but shouldn’t be long.”
Janny laughed. “I wish I’d asked you. I’ve driven myself up the wall trying to find her.”
Shelly didn’t respond. She began heading toward Mikey and Gretchen, commenting as she walked, “There’s almost nothing left. Miracle that it didn’t fall on us during a meeting.”
Mikey had finally noticed their new arrival and was heading over to meet them. “It was still standing when we graduated,” he commented. “Barely.”
Janny tried resuming the earlier topic. “I raised Gretchen on stories about our adventures in the Club, but I couldn’t remember enough details about your Mage Duel with Alley to do it justice.”
Shelly looked to the girl and offered the uncertain smile of an adult who has never spent much time around children. “Well, you see, everyone had their role. Michael was the Rogue, Anita was the Cleric, Devon was the Paladin, Janine was the Barbarian, and Allison and I both were Sorceresses.
“With us being the same role, it meant that we were constantly fighting over treasure that was suitable for both of us, and constantly trying to outdo the other. I’d come up with a great spell and Alley would copy it and add an extra effect. Or she’d conjure a familiar and I’d try and conjure a better one. We were being silly, but took it very seriously.”
“We took the whole Club very seriously,” Mikey commented. “Both the stuff we did as our characters, and the stuff we did for real.”
Janine added, “The rest of us tried making suggestions, but Alley and Shelly had put in a lot of time into their roles. Luther said that they should try and work it out so that both were OK with the change. That way, afterwards there’d be no hard feelings.”
“And then one rainy day, we watched The Sword in the Stone and the duel at the end gave us the idea.” As Shelly focused on telling the story, she no longer seemed distracted or awkward. “So the next few days until our meeting, Alley and I made our plans for the duel. I wrote pages of notes. We both drew up tons of ritual symbols and collected power crystals and stuff. I showed up with my staff, she came with her wand and well, we had it out.
“Everyone else was sort of sitting near the tree, they were the judges, and Alley and I, we stood…” she moved partway around the tree, marking a spot on the damp ground, “Here, this is where Alley stood. I was … here.” She turned, facing the ghost of her rival. “And we shouted our spells at one another, and Luther described the effectiveness. He was the final arbiter of things like this. He didn’t play favorites, so we trusted when he said something worked or didn’t work.
“Then well, I did something a little out of the ordinary--we were really evenly matched and I decided that to try and get an advantage, well, I threw a rock. I mean, I didn’t actually throw a rock at Alley, not a real rock. But I said I did as one of my actions, to interrupt her spell, and it worked.
“Alley said that was cheating, this was a magic battle, not a physical battle. But everyone voted in my favor--because when we came up with the duel rules, we didn’t limit the fight to magic-only. Alley got mad. She grabbed a handful of mud off the ground--real mud--and threw it at me. That’s how it started. I threw mud back at her, and we were shrieking and flinging it back and forth.”
Shelly let out a little sigh, then seemed to come back to today. “By the time we were head-to-toe in mud, we were laughing, though. We agreed that Alley would stay the sorceress. In character, I lost about half my powers due to trauma from an accident during the duel and cross-trained as a druid.”
“I really thought, at the time, that one of you was going to quit afterwards. The fight looked … serious,” Janny admitted.
“It was serious. Dead serious. But I knew that even though I didn’t technically cheat with that rock, I was going against the spirit of our contest. So. I agreed to compromise. I liked playing as a druid though, once I got used to it.”
The clearing fell silent. Janny couldn’t think of anything to say, and looked from face to face. Their friendship had been so easy as children. Had it just been Luther?
A musical noise came from Shelly, and she fished into her pocket for a moment, pulling out a small flip phone. “Yes? Ah. Uh-huh. Okay. No, no we haven’t yet. Mikey and Janny and Janny’s little girl so far.” A pause. “No sign of him. Yeah, Devon told Janny that he couldn’t make it.” She laughed, a rude braying noise. “You’re joking, right? Okay. See you soon.” She hung up and stuffed the phone back into her pocket. “Alley is almost here, didn’t want us to start without her.”
“Of course we wouldn’t.” Janny looked to the treeline, toward the lot. They’d start digging once Alley arrived.
“In college, I tried joining a tabletop roleplay,” Mikey commented, trying to fill the silence. “They don’t do it the same as we did--lots more rules, lots of numbers. I tried explaining the Club and they just laughed it off as kids playing pretend.” He sighed. “It’s not that they’re wrong, but I feel like the Club was so much more than a roleplaying game, or pretend, or even live-action roleplaying. Whenever we were together, it was like we had tons of different layers to whatever we did.”
Shelly nodded, “It wasn’t just helping Mrs. Weatherford with her garden, it was gathering spell components, it was a quest to kill the invading beetle-monsters, it was a heroic task to earn the Queen’s Favor. If nothing else, it made doing boring yardwork and chores a bit more interesting.”
A car door slammed in the distance, echoing weirdly through the trees. Moments later, they heard a crashing in the undergrowth. Janney and Mikey looked at Shelly, who raised her eyebrows, confused.
“It’s your turn to call for the password,” Gretchen prompted her.
Shelly laughed a little, “Oh yeah.” She raised her voice and called out to the new arrival and received the rote response. Alley stepped into the clearing a moment later, disheveled and out of breath, hurrying closer.
“Janny! You’re looking great, it’s really not fair. And Michael, my goodness, you’re so buff! Shelly, everyone, I’m so sorry I’m late. And nobody’s heard from Luther? Oh dear.” She stopped her excited babbling as she remembered to breathe, but looked between the four of them, grinning widely.
“Alley, I’m so glad you were able to make it. I’d been trying to find you online for years now. It never crossed my mind that Shelly might know how to reach you.” Janny stepped forward to hug Alley. “This is Gretchen. Shelly didn’t go into detail on the phone, but Devon had a little boy two weeks ago.”
“Oh, that’s great news!” Before Alley could launch into another delighted ramble, Mikey engulfed her in a hug as well.
On releasing her, he said, “Come on, let’s get digging.”
The only other person to wait for was Luther. And somehow, perhaps through their old bond, everyone knew he wouldn’t be here. This felt like the epilogue to the story of the Quest Club, but without Luther it would never be complete.
Janny tried to shake away that thought, focusing on the Capsule. More and more it had become something that might have the answer she’d spent twenty years--off and on--seeking.
Mikey used his shovel to mark the rough edges of their hole. It was bigger than their original, but they’d dug that in turns with one shovel, rather than four at once. That and the tree had changed enough over the years to add a little uncertainty to their reckoning.
Gretchen began taking pictures, including a close-up of Mikey’s first shovelful of dirt.
Janny’s memory of the real events mingled with the imagined version. Their characters had buried a capsule too, of sorts. They had been digging a tunnel into an ancient dragon’s lair, to put a treasure away for safe-keeping. The dragon was the only one they could trust with it, because it was the dragon they’d rescued in their first adventure.
Eventually the hole got deep enough that Shelly started carving steps into the side, away from the tree, so that the diggers could climb in and out more easily.
The sorceress and the druid, unaccustomed to physical activity, exhausted themselves early and sat, flushed and sweating, on a raised root. The rogue and barbarian swapped periodically as the hole grew cramped. During her turns, Janny lost herself in the digging. She’d always been tall for a girl, bulky in a way that would have been chubby if not for the imposition of her mother’s strict diet and exercise habits. Without the Quest Club, Janny might have been lost in this body, which had always seemed unfeminine and ugly.
But through her character, Janny came to terms with her figure, found inside her the spirit of a warrior woman. And since those days, she’d kept true to her barbarian’s sense of duty and responsibility to family and companions, the guidelines of honor and the value of tradition.
A hollow plastic thump under the shovel brought her back into the real world, reminding her that she was digging up a capsule, not digging into a cavern. “I think I’ve got something,” she called to the others, scraping away a few layers of dirt from a rounded surface. In her memory, the treasure was a traditional metal-strapped wooden chest. The reality of a ten-gallon plastic paint bucket was a little underwhelming. The party gathered around the sides of the hole, Gretchen reaching out to take a few pictures.
Working carefully, Janny dug around the bucket, finding the edges and then trying to make room to grab it and pull. It had settled awkwardly, almost on its side, but seemed intact. Finally she managed to wiggle it free. The contents rattled.
With excessive care, Janny raised the bucket, which Mikey cautiously received. She climbed out of the hole and wiped her muddy hands together. Shelly dribbled a bit of water on them, allowed Janney to scrape some of the worst of it off, then poured some more for a rinse. She winced at the sting of new blisters, then gently patted her palms dry on her jeans.
They formed a semicircle around the capsule. Janny broke the silence. “You open it, Mike. You were the last one here.” He seemed about to protest, but nodded.
The paint bucket unsealed with a dull pop. Everyone held their breath as he set the lid aside. He began to pull items out of the capsule, lifting them for everyone, then setting them in a row.
“Shelly,” he said, holding an old plastic butter tub. They’d all put their stuff in individual airtight containers, in case the paint bucket failed. “Anita.” A plastic soda bottle, papers stuffed inside. “Alley.” A zip-seal bag holding a small notebook and several plastic easter eggs. One had opened, covering the rest of the contents in a thin layer of scarlet and gold glitter. “Janine.” The old orange Tupperware bowl. “Me.” A bundle of cloth in another zip-seal bag. “Devon.” A small metal box.
He drew in a long, slow breath, and reached in for the final item. Somehow, Janine couldn’t remember Luther putting anything in the Capsule. He’d made a big ceremony about them putting the treasure into the bucket, and where she recognized everything else, this last object was a mystery.
Until now.
A large mail carrier-type satchel made out of stiff, water-stained canvas, a bit crumpled around the corners. Janny wondered how she had never seen it before. Mikey pulled the flap open, revealing an inside stuffed with plastic-wrapped objects.
He pulled one out at random.
He peeled it out of its wrapping and held it up to the others. An old hard plastic CD case, with a hand-written label. “Adventure 22, the Marketplace, Mission for the Earl of S-Pizza,” he read. “Devon’s Copy.” He started pulling out others. “Look at this. There are dozens of these, a labeled copy for each of us. What are they?”
“The Marketplace was what Luther called the Mall,” Janny reminded them. “Maybe it’s a recording or something? You remember how Luther was always going on about computers.”
Alley leaned to look into the open satchel. “Is everything in there a CD?”
“Let me check.” Mikey began rummaging around. “VHS copies of some of the movies we watched. Some of Luther’s arrowheads and tumbled stones. Ah, what’s this?” He pulled out a sealed baggie containing a red envelope. The front had writing in gold marker, showing the current date and a cursive L and D done with lots of flourishes.
Mikey opened it, pulling out a folded piece of lined paper. He cleared his throat and started reading.
Hi everyone
Sorry I couldn’t make it to the dig. I know some of you never stopped looking for me after I left. Maybe you have theories. Maybe some of you think I’m dead, changed my name, joined a cult, or went back to my homeworld. You know now, since you’re reading this, that I buried this capsule knowing I wouldn’t be back for it. Why? I wish I had a satisfactory answer to that question.
During our adventures together, we took ordinary events and made them extraordinary. I think it was a reaction to my own life, putting it in the reverse. The Club helped me come to terms with my unusual circumstances. As each of you embraced alter egoes--in truth better, more heroic mirrors of your true selves--I learned to accept my own nature.
I wish I could have stayed, I wish I could have been there with you through the rest of your schooling, through your young adult lives, as you found your footing in the world. But I have to believe the impression I left on each of you was lasting in some way.
I leave to you shares of the treasure we created together. Recordings, pictures, even some video. I’m sure there are compatibility programs so that modern computers can read them. All of the important stuff has a copy for each of you. Divide the rest as you see fit. If the time comes, teach others what we learned.
And although we never got around to slaying a maiden, being a peaceful band of heroes, rest assured, you rescued at least one dragon.
Mikey looked up, concluding with “Luther Drake.”
The party stood silently for a few minutes, then Gretchen spoke, her voice an incredulous whisper. “Luther was a dragon?”
“Drake is another word for dragon,” Shelly pointed out. “It was a pun.” Gretchen looked ready to argue, but a look from her mother kept her mouth shut.
“So I guess we divide this stuff up then? Then what?” Alley looked from person to person.
“Then we share contact information, so that we can get in touch a little more easily?” Janny suggested. “I hate that we lost all of these years, and I’d like to try and stay friends after this. Even if it’s just through e-mail.”
“Sounds good to me,” Mikey replied. “But let’s split it at the parking lot, after we refill the hole.”
They set to work, without the earlier conversation or banter. Luther’s letter seemed to evoke a somber mood.
Afterwards, as they returned to the cars, Janine paused, giving the Clubhouse Tree a final look. Luther hadn’t come. He hadn’t given them the answers she had always wanted. But as she turned and started the short hike back to the car, she felt a sense of closure.
For Gretchen, for the sake of a proper ending, Luther Drake might be a dragon after all.
From Yuanfen91's prompt, [RF] Twenty years prior you and a group of friends marked a tree with a message and buried a time capsule. In present day you plan to reunite there, and see how much has changed
