CCC157: Pixelated Ladies

They said we’d never escape, that there was more than that iron barrier to hold us in, herded like Lubanthan Goblins.

Yet Meghan claimed she knew a spell. We cleared the leaves for her to write it in the soil. And all went well.

Now we have only to negotiate our way out of the Misty Forest beyond, the domain of the Pixelated Ladies.


What, I hear you ask, is a Pixelated Lady? This is (just my name for it). For those not in the know, Fly Agaric (Amanita muscaria) yields an hallucinogen.

  2. It is. It’s a beautiful woodland. And that railing is part of a former railway which has run through here since early 1950s.

  3. Thank you for explaining this hallucinogen. I had no idea.
    A very interesting tale of woodland goblins, that works so well with this historic photo.

    Never trust things like these that are too pretty… Of course, if you know that their only danger is to give you hallucinations and that’s what you want, that’s another story!
    Love the story!

    Great story, very magical. I wonder if the fly agaric has its name only because of the flies, or because it makes you fly… on a broom… in the moonshine.
