Time: Well, now-ish
Condition: So-so

Out of the clouded, heavy sky, an aircraft appears. A battered craft, long-forgotten; no-one expects its return. Its sides bear no marks of victory, its body only superficial damage. Lights blinking hypnotically, it slows and approaches the long and weathered landing strip. It hovers majestically for a moment, then drops, entirely unceremoniously, onto the tarmac. Engines thrum and propeller blades whir as if they were insects in a rush of sudden activity; reverse thrust is applied, violently. The craft eventually comes to a stop. A ramp drops to the pavement, not hesitating to find out if the pavement objects.

A bear walks down the ramp. No-one greets him on the taxiway. He sighs, drawing in breath that seems reluctant to enter his lungs. He has seen many things. He has ventured beyond the veil. And yet, here, in his homeland, he feels a stranger. And so, he confronts the place he once knew, and says, with only the slightest hint of irony...

"Skytopia... what's new, baby?"

Good to see that some of the old guard are still around. Looks like I have quite a bit to catch up on here. We'll see if there's still room for a quiet old skybrarian.

I've been just continually renewing the books you've had checked out since ya left.
I figured you'd be back around to return them eventually.
