Winnie the Pooh


Jay was not particularly fond of crossing back into the animated world. He enjoyed being able to regain his memories, but the animated world was so frightening now. The Hundred Acre Wood wasn’t really the Hundred Acre Wood anymore. Or at least, it wasn’t his Hundred Acre Wood. The Darkness fell and everything changed. The sun barely shone and when it did, it was a dreary sort of sunlight that was surrounded by fog. There were creatures lurking the forest that were far worse than any Heffalump or Woozle that Jay might have ever run into in the past. That in itself was enough to send a terrifying shiver throughout Jay’s body.

He always had to go by himself because he had to find anyone that would cross over with him. Things didn’t seem quite as scary when one had a little company, after all. Still, if he wanted to keep his memories, then he would just have to face his fears. The people at the Transition Center patiently explained to him that he would lose his memories of the animated world if he didn’t visit every so often. That thought scared him even more than the dark creatures did and that was really saying something. He never, ever wanted to forget about Piglet and Tigger and Rabbit and Owl and Christopher Robin and everyone else. Jay feared that if he ever forgot about his animated world friends, then he would feel truly alone.

Jay always got into some sort of trouble in the animated world. After all, he was a bear of very little brain and honestly didn’t know any better. On this particular trip, he’d wandered into the forest, which was so much more frightening than he remembered. Every noise he heard sounded like a growl and every tree branch looked like a monster. Jay was lost, which was the only reason he was still wandering around in the forest. He wanted to cross back into the real world, but he could not find the portal if he was lost!

Suddenly a loud clap of thunder sounded, which sent Jay jumping into the air in fear. He went racing through the forest until he found a little cabin. Without much thought, he carefully moved into the building. It was clear that it was falling apart, but he was sure that it would be enough to shelter him from the cruel thunder and whatever else might be out there. “Oh, bother,” he said as he dropped down into the corner, where he felt the safest.

Belle


How many times she had done this by now, the girl did not know. In five years she'd gone through the portal at least twice, even three times a month. Every time was different, and few were quiet trips just to retain her memory. No, those were etched in her mind so deeply she thought she'd never forget them. Belle knew this wasn't the case - she knew the consequence to leaving the animated side too long. It seemed like an easy way to let them go, to let these painful mementos of who she really was slip away one by one. But she wouldn't forgive herself if she didn't do all she could to help those who may need a hand, and keeping those memories was just one of the consequences. It was a bittersweet trade-off, thought Belle as her boots softly crunched on the pine needles of the forest. She donned a hooded robe, dyed a deep brown and fastened at the neck. She tried to keep as silent as possible, as one could never tell what might be listening in these woods.

This week's trip across the portal had proved rather uneventful thus far - a rarity, certainly, but one she wouldn't take for granted. And all the same, she knew she should exercise the same caution as she would were there imminent danger. One could never assume they were safe, not here. As she headed through the forest, Belle followed a path she knew well but did not walk upon it. She knew well enough not to wander too foolishly into this forest, and instead watched it from several feet away, further into the trees. If she saw anyone she might recognize as a refugee she would join them, make sure they were well on their way, and help guide them if not. She hadn't seen a soul this far, and though she was half-relieved, the other half was concerned.

Perhaps it was the weather that had deterred anyone from making the trek to and from the Portal. She looked up at the sky above only to see forbidding clouds through the needles and leaves. It was odd to see that anything had grown here since the realm was covered in this blanket of evil. The greenery was dark and twisted, and almost seemed diseased if you looked at it close enough. Just then a gust of wind rippled through the branches, stirring them in an unsettling manner. A storm was coming on.

Sure enough, a clap of thunder echoed through the forest. Before the rain got too heavy, Belle knew she should find some shelter. There was an old cabin somewhere around here, she remembered, but it would be a little ways away from where she stood currently. She didn't have much choice in the matter, however, and headed that way. It turned out to be in more disrepair than she remembered; perhaps it had been longer than she thought since she had last visited. Either way, she ducked inside and began to shake off the rain from her cloak as she entered. There was a dusty old hearth, and though it hadn't been used in years, perhaps she could still make a fire. She was just in the middle of deciding whether or not that would be a wise decision when she realized she wasn't alone.

With a bit of a surprise, she stopped in her tracks. She hadn't noticed it before, but a fair sized teddy bear had rested himself up along the wall. Well, belle could only assume that he had rested himself there, as in another moment he began to move. "Oh!" Belle said, her surprise getting the better of her. She didn't mean to startle the poor thing, but a toy bear was about the last thing that she expected to find here. "I'm sorry, I didn't mean to barge in."




ooc// finally got to this! hope its okay <3

Winnie the Pooh


Pooh Bear was not fond of this kind of weather at all. It had such a dreary feel to it, especially in the animated world that was covered by darkness. In the real world, he might not have many people nearby, but he had a nice place to live and some tasty treats – both of which made him feel better during weather like this. This little cabin was keeping him dry for the time being, but he wasn’t too sure how well it would do in the future. As the thoughts poured through his mind, Pooh stuck out a paw and gently pushed on the wall next to him. It caved slightly beneath the pressure and he immediately retracted his paw.

Oh, bother,” he said to himself. He blinked and winced as a drop of rain fell through the roof and hit him on his head. Pooh reached up and touched the part of his head that was now wet and glared up at the little hole in the ceiling that had allowed the water through, as if it did it on purpose. He scooted a bit to the side so that he would not get dripped on again, hopefully.

This sort of weather always seemed to remind Pooh of some very unpleasant things. Not only was the weather dreary and depressing, but it reminded him of the night that he found out about Heffalumps and Woozles. That night wasn’t a complete loss because it introduced his dear friend Tigger to his life, but finding out about such awful creatures like Heffalumps and Woozles was truly terrifying! Tigger explained them to him and it turned out that they did the most horrible thing that Pooh could ever think of. They stole honey! Just thinking about it made Pooh Bear nervous and scared for his dear honey back home. Did they have Heffalumps and Woozles in the real world?

He closed his eyes and carefully tapped at the side of his head as he tried to figure out his own question. If he could cross over the portal into the real world, then perhaps a Heffalump or a Woozle could, too! He opened his eyes and his ears automatically drooped as he began to worry about his dear honey. Maybe the wonderful people at the housing complex would make sure his honey was safe from the Heffalumps and Woozles.

As if the very thought of his honey wasn’t enough to frighten him, the door was opened and was quickly followed by a loud clap of thunder. It scared him so much that he immediately dove underneath a large plank of wood that was resting on the floor nearby. He only peeked his head out from underneath it when he heard the voice that came from whatever had come inside. It was a gentle, sweet sounding voice. “Oh, hello!” he said, pushing himself up and out from underneath the plank of wood. Pooh Bear got a better look at the person that had come in and she didn’t look frightening at all! “That’s quite alright!” he said, chuckling to himself as he moved a little closer to her.

He put his paw to his chin thoughtfully as he analyzed her. “I thought you were, perhaps, something that you seem to not be, but now I see that you are not what I thought you were which was wrong,” he said, dropping his paw from his face and putting both of them behind him. He squished his eyes shut tightly as there was another loud clap of thunder. “I am not particularly fond of this kind of weather, you know,” he said, opening his eyes and looking towards one of the windows before looking back at her,”But I suppose it is not so bad with some company!

Belle


It wasn’t as if Belle was surprised a stuffed bear could move and speak on his own. No, it was quite the opposite, as not too long ago she was surrounded by enchanted household objects. Save for the Beast, they had been her only companions. And even when she had first stumbled upon the castle and its magic spell, she hadn’t been frightened by its residents - not most of them, anyway. So when she arrived at this abandoned cabin in the woods, it was somehow natural to find an animate teddy bear waiting for her. With the amount of evil magic that surrounded this place, there were certainly stranger things going on.

She was still dripping rain water as she moved further into the cabin, not better aware of her surroundings. There was nothing like a little surprise to remind her there could be darker things afoot. But for now, they were alone. The cabin was not a large one, musty from years of neglect and in need of a few repairs, but it was a better shelter than none. The storm outside raged on and rattled the windows. Any hesitance that the yellow bear had towards her seemed to melt away, but she could see he was still uncomfortable with the weather.

"...but now I see you are not what I thought you were which was wrong," he had finished saying, and Belle thought she had followed that well enough. She tried not to smile too broadly as he buried his face in his paws, and instead went to remove her cloak. "That's all right," she said, taking hold of an overturned chair and setting it upright. "These lightning flashes could make anyone look frightening." She moved the heavy fabric from her shoulders to the back of the wooden chair and turned back to her new acquaintance. He was just flinching after another wave of thunder.

She moved back toward the bear, finding a spot not far from where he stood to kneel on the floor. She tucked her legs under her dress and sat, leaning on one arm. "Nor am I, really," she said, in attempt to reassure him a bit. They'd only just met, but he had been kind so far; there was no reason she couldn't return the favor, if he was to be her company for the time being. "That, and you always know the storm will pass." It was a great comfort to Belle to know that whatever came her way, it would pass eventually. She'd lost her father, her friends, and so many others dear to her - it was hard, but she'd found a way to move on. Almost. With a sign, she looked back at the bear. Now was not the time to get caught up in her past.

"What's a dear thing like you doing all the way out here anyhow?" she asked him, curious and concerned all at once. She had come out all this way, but she'd been doing so for years. And though she wasn't quite a warrior like those in the resistance, she'd made her way out of some tricky situations. At the very least she had long legs that could carry her from danger, and the stuffed bear before her wasn't so blessed. "You've made it quite far way into this forest."

Winnie the Pooh


Pooh Bear was so very pleased that the being that wandered into this little cabin was not one of those awful Darkness creatures. He’d never stumbled upon something truly awful – not yet at least, but he was warned by the Transition Center that true evil was out there. He never wanted to run into something like that. His mind was so innocent, really, that he couldn’t even imagine something so horrible. The very worst thing in the Hundred Acre Wood was probably a Heffalump or a Woozle. There were little tricks to keeping those away, like Pooh’s very favorite pop gun. Unfortunately, there wasn’t really anything he could do against the Darkness creatures, which was a frightening enough thought for the poor bear.

The woman in the cabin with him seemed very pleasant, indeed. There was something musical in her voice and Pooh Bear could have sworn that her eyes sparkled. No one as seemingly magical as her could possibly be any kind of Darkness creature even in disguise. Perhaps that was just the simple bear’s way of rationalizing things, but he decided that he would stick with it. He liked that much better than being afraid of his present company. Pooh Bear hadn’t met anyone quite like her before. Meeting new people was always so exciting, too! At least, it was if they were nice and he was fairly certain that she was.

The last time he was stuck in a storm like this, he learned of the Heffalumps and Woozles. It frightened him so much that he had such a nightmare! At least right now, there wasn’t any honey for them to steal. Perhaps since he didn’t have any honey, the Heffalumps and Woozles would leave him alone. He slowly lowered his arms from his head when the woman moved towards him. That certainly made him feel a little bit better. The storm didn’t seem quite as scary now with a little company.

After she sat down next to him, he did the same and plopped down on the floor with his legs spread out. “Yes, I suppose that’s true!” he said, rubbing his chin thoughtfully,”Back home, there was once a storm where it rained so much that everyone’s house was filled with water! I certainly hope it’s not one of those.” He sighed, thinking back to those days. It was right after he had learned of the Heffalumps and Woozles. Poor Eeyore’s house had been destroyed and Piglet nearly got lost in all that water! Somehow, Pooh had managed to save all of his honeypots, though.

Oh,” he chuckled at her question,”It seems I may have just gotten lost.” It really wasn’t a difficult thing for him to do. After all, he had lived his entire life in the Hundred Acre Wood and he somehow managed to get lost there, too. “The storm made the forest much darker than it usually is and, I’m just a bear of very little brain, you know, so I got confused and turned around.” He wrung his hands together and sighed. “You wouldn’t happen to know your way back, would you?
