Once, in a far off land, there was an avalanche. It was not an avalanche of snow or bills or tax collectors, no!

It was an avalanche of coursework. No one heard the cries, but in that far off land, a girl was covered; she could no longer see the rainbows reflected off the raindrop-diamonds she held so dear.

She built herself a little hermit cave out of reference books, science journals and index cards. She hosted recycled-raindrop and Goetheberry tea to any creatures that moseyed by; she grew a garden of genetically-biodiverse seeds from the seedbanks intended to preserve diversity all around the world.

It was not a happy existence, for she could find no way out of her little hermit hole (and was too large to follow her mice friends), but it was a well-understood existence, for it meant she was fully immersed.

In that far off land, that Academia over the horizon, Kiwi sat in her academic abode sipping tea, eating literature reviews and conversing with her pinky toe.

That is where the story is left. There is a prophecy that some day, some beautiful summer day in the month of May so far away, the fair maiden Summer will don flowing clothes in eleven pieces and frolic to the avalanche remains. She will gasp, daintily, and decide she's not much for maidenhead or hood anyway; she will rip her skirt, tighten her corset, pull on some Docs and dive in.

Out will come Summer with a dashing smile, hand-in-hand with Kiwi and her last cup of Goetheberry tea, which she will spill to the ground to watch crocuses grow up and tut at her. Then Kiwi will know she is free. She will round-off through the meadow, taste raindrops on her tongue and count eleven rainbows to the tune of ukulele song.

The end...in the future.

[This just in: Kiwi has officially lost her mind. Have you checked your socks lately?]

D'awr. I'm glad it drew a smile. :D I'm still hermit-holing!

Oh, how familiar this seems. I've pretty much gone completely crazy too. In a weird way, it's fun here. At least, if the work got taken away, it would be.

Good luck!

I've gone even crazier, and now added 'ill' to the list - bad signs! WE CAN DO ITTTTT!

*Pours her dear friend a mug of Goetheberry tea.* I have not read Wilhelm Meister, but it is very much on my list for when I have time for such things again!

You are absolutely welcome to come and joining me! You may have to dig yourself in and cover your tracks so I can't get out again (I must stay here to get some work done!), but yes, by all means do come on in!

The cats have something carefully hidden away, I'll try and fish it out.

Thank you. If anyone is likely to have stolen my mind/sanity, it may very well be your cats.
