Felix spends most of the morning waiting for Foster and Laughter
to awake from their drug-induced slumber. There are several visitors to
the infirmary during the course of the morning - Ariana comes and goes
several times, Ronan shows up and Felix asks him to go after Iseult.
Felix Trumps Mandor, and informs him of the accident. Those assembled eat
lunch in the infirmary. Shortly after lunch, Foster starts to wake up.
All of the visitors (aside from Felix, Tamaryn and Driscoll) are asked to
leave. Felix's face falls when he confirms that Foster indeed has no
Laughter starts to wake up shortly afterwards. She's pretty blank
too. Tamaryn and Felix spend the time telling Foster about his life.
Foster assumes that he was put up for adoption when Felix is unable to
provide any details about his childhood. Tamaryn is gracious enough to
field those questions, Felix jumping in when he feels he can. Caitt
performs a similar role for Laughter.
Bleys explains the Pattern to the duo, and the hope that the
Pattern will heal their memory.
Nicholas calls the family together for a state dinner, where he
basically says, "Brand is dead if we find him." Big surprise.
Felix and Tamaryn return to their kids after dinner, and play
another round of 40 questions with Foster.

The kids take the Pattern the next morning. Foster goes
first...well, not really first. Felix remembers Foster's horrible,
terrible, very bad day (the time Foster first took the Pattern). Felix
makes the mistake of admitting that Foster almost died that first time.
Bleys offers to walk first, so Foster can follow in his wake. Foster
reaches the center and returns. His memory has been partially restored -
he can remember people, and his feelings about them, but no events.
Laughter tries next. She remembers everything up to the first
time she took the Pattern, but nothing else. Laughter takes off, all
upset like - she goes back to Foil...the only home she remembers...to find
that Beauty is no longer a baby, and that she (Laughter) no longer owns
Felix checks in with her later in the day. Bleys is helping
himself to the manor's best brandy, and Laughter is breaking things.
Felix goes and talks to her; she's hostile, and breaks things (again, big
surprise). He tells her about her kids, and how one of them is off doing
something extremely stupid (like mother, like daughter). Laughter gets
angry, Felix Trumps Iseult, Iseult and Laughter argue, Ronan Trumps
Felix, they talk, Iseult comes through, Laughter and Iseult cry. Felix
leaves, mission accomplished.
Dinner's pretty tame.
Saturday, August 26, 2994
At midnight, the family is summoned to the Great Hall. Nicholas
informs those assembled that Brand has been caught and that he's to be
killed. Brand is brought in, bleeding. Nimue appears, and says, "Nope,
nope, nope, you can't kill him." Everyone gets to beat Brand up.
Laughter does that Inego Montoya thing, and slashes Brand's check -
marking him. No one else from Gérard's line touches Brand, all of
them showing great restraint. Felix does, however, destroy a table, as an
example of what he'd like to do to Brand. Nimue rips the Pattern out
Brand, Brand's brain is wiped, and Clarissa is told to take Brand back to
Avalon. Felix looks at his splinter-filled hands in dismay, and starts to
wipe the blood from them gingerly. Whimsy heals them somehow. Felix then
proceeds to pick up his mess.
