Intro Thread: Jamie
The TARDIS had departed. It was a strange thing, there had been a moment of wooziness following it vanishing. Jamie could remember it all so clearly, and yet at the same time, the past experiences seemed far out of reach. It was probably strain, and lack of food. He was a growing lad, and he was always hungry. And the battle...followed by almost being sent half way around the world as a slave... it would make anyone a little wobbly.

the majority of his allies were gone, now. They had made it to France - how was it he had remained behind? he couldn't rightly recall. Still, here he was, and he had a home, albeit one fairly far away. It would be a good few days and night walk before he saw family again. Still, the day was a clear one, the moors thankfully seemed empty of any damned Englishmen. A walk might clear his head.

But it was not to be. After only an hour or so, there was a tingling in the air, and a stillness that felt odd. The wind dropped, the birds and insects fell quiet. It was as if everything had just stopped. And there was a sense of being watched. It was not unpleasant, but it surely was unnerving.

His hand fell to his side, where his dirk always was. He might only be their piper, but never let it be said that he was not also a warrior of the McLaren clan. If there any filthy redcoats in hiding, they'd regret it, you see if they didn't... his eyes and ears alert, peering for the hidden enemy...

Re: Intro Thread: Jamie
The hidden enemy was not there - hidden or otherwise. But the sudden appearance of a swirly vortex of bright, eye-piercing white a few feet away was hardly a welcome sight. It did not attack. it did not threaten. It just swirled, like a patient and stoic twister or waterspout.

From within, a voice spoke, the accent unplacable to Jamie's ears, but one that was obviously not issuing from one of noble birth.

"Right, got 'im! All this jumpin' around time, it'll be the death of me. I knew it'd come back to bite them on the bum, I said at the time, don't go muckin' up timelines..."  It then paused, apparently realising it could be heard. So it tried to sound more competent. "Hello there, sonny jim. Just before I give you a message, right, can you confirm yer name? Just so I am sure I got the right person. Got a real important message for yer. 'bout the Doctor, innit?"

Re: Intro Thread: Jamie
It was all Jamie could do not to hurl himself onto the vortex, but he scowled.

"James Robert McCrimmon, Piper of the McLaren clan, in service to my Laird. What is the Doctor to you?" He had just seen him off; but he was already seeing him as part of his past - not something to be dwelled upon now.

"Well, it's all all a bit complex, innit? Just need to say, he's in dead schtuk, really up to his eyeballs in trouble. We - that's me an' my boss - we hoped you'd be willin' to help out. Could use a good friend or two to help us sort things out for him. You fancy a go? Boss reckons that you've got the right qualities!"

The vortex swirled away happily, not making threatening moves.

Re: Intro Thread: Jamie
He'd caught Jamie on the hop. He'd been wondering if he shouldn't have tried to go with the Doctor. He's really not sure why he didn't. He needed someone strong to protect him. That Polly girl, as English girls were, was clearly a bit weak, and a screamer besides. Ben was strong enough he supposed; but he was also British, and thus not to be trusted with your life. Not like a Highlander!

"Nah, that's a bit of a problem. he's well busy, right? But I can tell you anyfink you need to know. Look, it's a bit tricky to keep this portal open. if you come through, I promise you'll get everything you need explained. It's all a bit urgent, though. We'll have a bite to eat, I'll show you the problem. I mean, if you really don't want to help then, we won't stop you coming back here. We're not that sort of people."

It was hard for Drax to sound sincere. But he did try.

"Creag an tuire!"

A sigh, but the boy drew out his dirk, and leapt into the vortex, ready to vanquish all foes.
