Once upon a Time there was once a young wizard.... who met a knight that was always afraid, but he tried to do what he could to help, any ways.
The wizard was young and handsome and very clever with his spells... But alas, fate conspired against the two and the Wizard was killed by a horrible calamity.

However, these two had a daughter, a young scientist!

"They had scientists in those times, mommy?"

"Well..." Karma paused, crafting her words carefully. "Of course they did! Alchemists!"

"Can I be an Alchemist on Earth, mommy?"

"Honey... you can be whatever you want..."

The Scientist... um.. Alchemist was a clever girl! She saw the despair that her knight-father was in and labored night and day over special scientific equations and experiments!
Alas, Science proved only able to restore the young Wizard's life but only to a ghost form...
The answer, it seemed, lay in a strange artifact that'd been growing dust in the back of her laboratory!






She had read all the stories and they always said to be careful what you wish for! Still, the clever Alchemist rubbed the lamp and summoned the Genie!
Her first wish... "I want my dad back to life....."
Karma is beginning to have her doubts when Peter materializes in Ghost form.
"Oh Hell! I was afraid that would happen!"


The Genie scowls at her for doubting his power as Peter's life flows back into him. "Can I go now?"
"Oh... um... right.. Wow!!!" Karma can barely contain her joy! "Daddy!!!"


His work done, the Genie retires to.. well, the TV room to watch the Cooking Channel with Growly!
"I found a diamond!"
"That's great... but... Oooh! Gumbo!"


With Thomas away, Peter settles into restoring bonds to his family.
"I missed you, bunny human!"
"I ... I ...missed you too, Growly. Cosmo and Star miss you too!" He seems only a little bewildered but the sight of familiar family makes Peter happy.


And getting to know the granddaughter he had held as an infant and toddler before the meteor strike.
"I um... I like Aqua, Granddaddy.... Do you like aqua?"
"Yes, Destiny, I like it very much."
It's a little awkward for Destiny, but she tries to get to know him.


Peter's next reunion is with his horse.
Storm nickers softly as he's hugged, and in his horsey language, he says, "soft bunny man .... where did you go? Soft, pink spotted man was sad... took me rides lots! Why did you go away?"
While Peter can't understand the horse, he can understand the sentiment. "I'm sorry Storm... So sorry... Where is.. where is Thomas?"


And there was Thomas....
Disheveled, weary, gaunt and a mess, he can only stand there and stare at Peter, in shock. "P... Peter?"


He quickly closes the gap and pulls Peter into a kiss, tears of joy mixing with happy kisses. "I missed you... I mi... mis.... " The words fade out.


They spend the rest of the evening watching the stars.... with the company of a strange Lawn Gnome to gleefully keep vigil over them!

And spend the night sleeping and dreaming in each other's arms. The dreams of mundane things like cooking and chores replace the heartbreaking ones.



The morning brings a bit of renewal, for Thomas!







"I'm glad to have you back, Thomas."
"Gl.. glad to have me back? But... I didn't go any..." More tears begin to fall.
"I mean.. you!" Peter brushes a hand through the newly trimmed and spiked hair and smiles.


And so the Wizard and the Knight lived happily ever after....
"That was a good story mommy... but it needs more Science!... and Aliens! There needs to be aliens!"

"Well, Destiny, maybe you can add to that story..."

You... you got him back! HURRAH! I am so happy for you! :D And for Thomas and family too. ♥

So Peter doesn't grasp yet what happened? I wonder what he'll think when he starts to understand...

Love the framing story, too. That's a nice touch. Though it makes me wonder if this is really real...

He grasps he was dead and missed them. But I don't think he fully realized how he died. Since it happened so fast. One minute he was watching a meteor, next minute... SMOOSH! :C

I could have pulled the Joss Whedon grimmy 'You ripped me out of Heaven' emo on him dealing with being back or handled that he'd realize all this but frankly, I was just so happy to find an actual game-playing trick that required no cheating to get it to work that I was just happy to leave it at that!

But Peter was just happy to see Thomas back to his old self since he'd returned to him just miserable and grungey with despair.

And it's real! Karma's just a princess and has to tell stories like a princess would! After all, Destiny didn't know her Bunny grandfather, at all. She was just a baby when it happened.

Oohhh I see. I mis-read, before. I blame the nasty headache I had! Which is mostly gone, now. :)

Bunny grandfather... you know I thought I was part rabbit, when I was small? We had a print of Durer's painting of a hare and my dad used to tell me it was my Great-Grandmother Bunny. ^_^

*Chuckles* Ooh your father was a bad man :D Love him!

Very cruel though to a poor naive child.

*Giggles some more because guess I is just a nasty one at heart*

That's his specialty - not being mean to children, but telling whoppers as if they were true. I picked it up from him, though I have tried to break myself of the habit because people started not believing anything I said (even what was obviously true!)

But I still have some fond memories of my tall tales going viral - there was one I told about Chihuahua cheese at the grocery where I worked, and when I overheard one of the stock boys re-telling it to some girl and her saying, "Oh no! Those poor little dogs!" - what a feeling of satisfaction that was! >:D

Oh that is wonderful. Big smiles here.

Especially liked reading how Thomas reacted to all this and seeing his final renewal.

Thank you. I don't stage much of what goes on with them, outside of the weddings and wish fulfills but occasionally I will set things up around what they do. The negative moodlets aside, after Peter was killed Thomas started rolling wishes to befriend Storm. So I ran with that and his relationship with Destiny.

I just figured he'd crumble after all that with Peter, then Star. So I mussed up his hair and made him sort of scruffy from stress. Thought it'd be nice to have him renew with Peter's return. I'm just glad I was able to do it with legit mechanics and not cheating! :)

I think you did it really well. It was an enjoyable read. I like happy endings (though this isn't an end - oh dear, you know what I mean.)

I love happy endings too! I'm a sucker for happy movies and happy stories! I think that's why I was so ambivilant about seeing Dark Knight Rises. The second in the three was such a downer. That one made up for it, though.

Ah yes, I remember you saying. I must make an effort to see those, especially the last. Like you, I like watching something that makes me feel good once it has finished.
