Everyone is looking a wee bit tired in a Starfinder lecture, except
Ethel, of course, who has woken up already. Hobbes is late (again), and he retreats to the back row as neither Milly
nor Ethel want to sit by him. Starfinder sets them a task - he wants them to find an object and bring it to life.
After the lecture Ethel tells Milly and Cas that she has become Starfinder's research assisstant.
In Misery's, Hobbes talks to Tim and Azmat about bringing something
to life that will impress Starfinder - he wants to be a Research Assisstant too. Milly brings a picture to life using
her special talent. Starfinder sees her, and is interested - he wants to meet with her to discuss it. Hobbes goes
a bit crazy and bosses Tim and Azmat about, telling them to get him books. Starfinder is trying to talk to Shakeshaft
about "Sub-Herbal Potion Theory" but all Shakeshaft is bothered about is whether Andy puts his milk in the cup before the
tea or after the tea.
Hobbes tries to make a stone Gargoyle come to life - it doesn't
work. He leaves, and sarcastically tells it not to come to life. Tim and Azmat stay behind to clear up the books.
The Gargoyle moves
Next morning, Milly goes to her meeting with Starfinder, but tells
Ethel that she is going to the library so as not to make her jealous. Milly walks through a smashed up corridor, hearing
noises - something is following her. She challenges it to follow her - "see if I care!" and the noises stop. She
bumps into Hobbes as she turns round. He is looking for Tim and Azmat, but Milly doesn't know where they are either.
In the library, the teachers are surveying the damage done.
They spot Tim and Azmat - they are now stone statues up on the wall. Starfinder is in a meeting with Milly. He
wants to do research on her "special gift." In the middle of their conversation, Ethel walks in. Realising that
Milly lied to her about going to the library she storms off. Milly tries to make peace, to no avail. Milly hears
noises in Shakeshaft's office and goes in. It is completely trashed. Shakeshaft comes in and doesn't appear surprised
at all - he tells Milly that a Gargoyle has done the damage. Milly rushes off to find someone.
Milly displays the power potential of a true woman and beats Hobbes
down with words. She gets him to confess to bringing the Gargoyle to life. He says that he told it not to (yeah,
good effort Hobbes, but I don't think that's gonna get you out of this one!) Meanwhile, Cas is bringing a jacket to
life for her project. The Gargoyle is creeping round right by her feet (a little unrealistic not to have noticed it).
Cas tells it to go away, but it follows her. She runs right into Hobbes's room, where Tim and Azmat have just run to
after being turned back by Shakeshaft. Just when they think they are safe, the little bugger breaks in through the window.
It kinda gets a bit confused and it goes back and forward for a bit, then Milly tells it to really go at Azmat. It leaves
through the window.
In the library (again), Ethel sees the Gargoyle, she screams and
tells it to go away. Milly comes in and tells it to really go for her. Ethel doesn't get it and thinks that Milly
is trying to kill her. Eventually Milly get it to go away, and Shakeshaft gets it to turn back to stone by telling it
Hobbes is taken off to Thunderblast by the Beetle and Milly explains
to the others that she was a clever little so-and-so really by working out that the Gargoyle did the opposite of whatever
it was told to do. I didn't really get the bit at the end where Shakeshaft goes "Be watchful" and that weird music comes
on and everyone looks at this creepy thing on the wall - anyone care to explain it for me??
