~Star Wars~

Welcome back and I see the “Force” has guided you back to another chapter of “As the Jungle Turns.”  We left our heroes searching for a mode of transportation down to the land below as the Twins are para gliding away.  The team has found an alien mode of transport and are searching for the villains in the clouds and debris.

Pia began drawing this great piece before finishing Chapter 21.  Fortunately we were able to tie chapters 21 and 22 together.

To tie in the Star Wars movie theme, we decided to part ways with our friend, “Harry the Yeti” and twist our story a bit.  For the rest of this chapter, I’m going to assume that you (the reader) has seen the first trilogy of Star Wars.  In Return of the Jedi, the droid C3PO has found the tribe of the Ewoks and is able to speak their language.   The Ewoks are amazed by his golden metal and believe he is a god.  In our story, the Ewoks are amazed by Harry’s huge size as he has a furry exterior like the Ewoks but he is much more massive.  The Ewoks embrace Harry and want him to protect their tribe.

Jaime Leos- "The group has landed in the Forest of Endor and located the hand gliders but no sign of the Twins.  A small tribe of creatures called the Ewoks surrounded Harry in amazement by his size and stature."

Pia Langfeld- "Among the Ewoks, Harry realized he no longer felt lonely.  In the Forest of Endor he had found his purpose as Leader and Protector."

Jaime Leos- "No signs of the Twins....the remaining trio leaves for nearby Berlin in a new mode of transportation possibly left behind by the aliens...Speeder Bikes!  Mary was definitely enjoying the bikes.  The team hasn't had the opportunity to unwind and lollygag in sometime since hunting the Twins."

Since Pia is from Germany, I suggested that we take our heroes to Berlin for a bit of “lolly-gagging”  until more intel could be gathered on the Twins.  So until the next chapter…..and may the Force be with you.

Chapter 21

~ALIEN~

 Welcome back to another Out-of-this-World episode of “As the Jungle Turns” or “Mary’s Saga.”  We last left off with the team of Mary, Wayne, Harry the Yeti and Mr. Sides exploring the ‘Enigmatic’ cave but suddenly the cave began collapsing  around them.  We last saw large plasma arcs flowing outwards from the cave, but to where?
The team ran out of the cave but what they saw was unbelievable!!
Mary could not believe her eyes…..
Pia Langfeld- "Mary couldn't believe her eyes: The whole side of the mountain took off like some alien spacecraft....now, how to follow??"
Pia Langfeld- “Mary couldn’t believe her eyes: The whole side of the mountain took off like some alien spacecraft….now, how to follow??”
The plasma arcs supplied energy to the alien spacecraft.
We had the idea that the Himalayan mountain served as a conductor for thunder storms and transferred the power to the generators.
This is why the cave was collapsing.
Jaime Leos- "The team comes out of the collapsing cave alive to find part of the mountain floating away!!  It felt as if this was part of an Alien dream!!  In the distance they could see The Twins escaping....they would need to find a mode of transportation to catch them.  They would also need to be cautious of the floating islands because the crumbling rocks and earth was falling and revealing a spaceship!!"

The idea for these floating islands came partly from the movie Avatar.
We imagined floating islands but soon reveal a spaceship.
The Twins are in the background hand gliding from the floating islands to the land below.

Pia Langfeld- "Interestingly enough, the aliens had left behind a spacecraft...now they would have to figure out how to fly it...."

Pia drew this flying ship and I thought how it resembled the flying craft from the movie John Carter.
The flying craft on the movie used light to obtain its power.

While transitioning to the next chapter, “Star Wars” I decided to draw the floating island and reveal that after all of the rocks and earth had fallen off, it had revealed a “Cloud City”.
