Hi, it’s Greenygrey, we’re in that void between working-class week and wolf week, so I thought it would be a great time to have the next episode of Werewolf of Oz: Fantasy Travel by Google Maps. Fittingly for a weekend, it sees the end of the Lord of the Rings themed Smiggin Holes story, with Cathy’s spiritual thinking again at the forefront of the fightback against the Gollum/Smeagol inspired character.
Chapter 99. Snakes and Ladderless Holes for Snaggin’ Smiggin
I mentally prepared myself for a long fall into a deep chasm, but then the hole suddenly moved to the left, and I landed head-first in a muddy puddle. I didn’t even have my hat on to cushion the fall; but was relieved I’d avoided the hole.
Smiggin Holes is Down in a Hole
After I’d sat up and wiped the mud from my eyes, I saw the hole had moved under where Smiggin had been. Elle was standing beside the hole, but the holiculturist was nowhere to be seen.
I put my hat back on, and it felt good to be reunited with ol’ corky. We all gathered around the hole. Smiggin was sitting at the bottom of it; looking disconsolate but still clutching some of its green hoard.
Cathy Keeps Quiet about Snaggin’ Smiggin
I asked Cathy how she’d turned the hat into a snake and moved the hole. She said we all have our own special powers, and they wouldn’t be special if everybody knew about them.
Being a shapeshifting, chameleonic one-half of a legendary vegetarian werewolf I just had to agree with her, and left it at that.
Snakes and ladders is a popular board game.
Down in a Hole is an Alice in Chains song.
