an innocent patch of empty air

It has never done anything wrong. In fact, none of the air in the patch has, even when it has been in other patches. It's so innocent.

A small human appears out of nowhere in the innocent patch of empty air.

She is wearing a many-pocketed black coat over an outfit that is mostly white with silver accents. On her head there perches a silver-accented white tiara, strangely stubborn about staying in place. She is also wearing a backpack, and a pair of wings resembling the gnarled branches of an ancient tree, strung with cobwebs that catch the air with improbable efficiency.

She can see land over thataway, but when she tries to move towards it, she discovers that her wings aren't rated for downless maneuvering. All she manages to do is set herself spinning vertiginously. She flails in a mostly-unsuccessful attempt to stabilize herself, and yells things that might mar the air's innocence.

She manages to get herself straightened out, stops swearing, takes a few deep breaths, and starts carefully experimenting.

Most of the things she tries don't work. She hopes she hasn't moved away from solid ground much, but it's hard to tell for sure just by looking. Still, better to experiment and learn even if she screws up in the process, rather than just sit still and hope for rescue.

Several times she has to take a long break. All this spinning isn't doing her stomach any good and she'd really rather not find out what happens when you throw up without gravity, especially not while she's still unable to escape the consequences. So to speak.

"Hello!" she calls back. "I'm stuck, can you help me?"

Since there seems to be a language barrier, she demonstrates her stuckness by trying and failing to move purposefully in the air. And now she's spinning again. At least she's figured out how to stop that in relatively short order - spread her wings out wide to create drag, make small adjustments until she slows down. But her poor stomach is distinctly ungrateful for the commotion.

"Sorry, I don't understand that either!"

...What.

Okay, she can work with this.

<Yes,> she tries. Will that work? If it doesn't she can try something else.

[personal profile] greatestgift 2015-08-28 01:45 am (UTC)(link)
Okay, that's also surprising.

<Thank you! How are you doing that? And why is there only down on the surface?>

People having quite a bit of height on Sable is something she was very much used to, back when there were people around to be shorter than. For that matter, even the horrible mindless person-things of Terraria are all taller than she is. It's not unusual.

The ears are a bit odd, but she's not about to stare. That would be rude.

She takes it.

<Thank you so much. I was beginning to think I'd be stuck there forever.>

<I was stranded in a strange world and trying to get home. I got to the point where the only thing left to do was test my transport spell and hope it worked. Clearly I didn't have it right.>

[personal profile] greatestgift 2015-08-28 02:03 am (UTC)(link)
<That would be nice.>

She folds her wings neatly to her back once she's on the ground; they tuck in surprisingly small, except where the branch-tips sweep down past the edge of her coat.

<My name's Sable, by the way. Sable Arrowsmith.>

<They're from the world I was stuck in. I have enough materials to make another pair if you want one, but you seem to be able to fly already, and more effectively at that.>

<...A giant snake with a mirror for a face ate me,> she admits. <Well. Insofar as a mirror can eat. It went at me with its mirror and suddenly I was somewhere else.>

<Up until it happened to me, I would've said it doesn't happen at all!>
