The sun was too bright. That was Rachel's first thought as she blinked her eyes. Second was the thought that there was way too much sand in her bed, followed quickly by the realization that she wasn't in her bed which was enough to make her sit bolt-upright and her heart beat. Two things which did nothing for the headache she suddenly discovered.

Moving to cover her eyes against the sun, she groaned, trying to remember where she was and what had happened the night before. She was coming up blank. It was like someone had erased the memories and that wasn't supposed to be possible on an island where everyone had no powers. Cracking her eyes a little, she tried to look around. Sand. Shells.

Ruby slippers?

On her feet were ruby slippers and as she looked further at herself she realized she was wearing the whole get-up. Gingham dress, apron, petticoats, she was freaking Dorothy Gale. What the hell happened to her last night?

"Oh, I don't think I'm in Kansas anymore." With another groan she closed her eyes and laid back down. Why did the sun have to be so bright?"

At first, Jess thought she was wrapped in a warm blanket. Which was an odd choice considering that she seemed to be on the beach, and on the beach with someone, but not nearly as alarming as when she pried her eyes open and saw what she was actually wrapped in.

"What the hell?" she said.

She'd had her share of morning afters, but usually she had some idea of where she was and what the hell she'd been doing. This time? Not so much.

"It's a fair question either way," said Jess. Her first instinct was to tear the thing off, but it turned out she wasn't actually wearing anything underneath. She was either going stark, or she was stuck with it. "I don't suppose you...have any idea how we got here?"

She's pretty sure she didn't sleep with her--if she ever decided to go all Sapphic she had a ready-made life partner already--but given the circumstances she supposed all bets were off.

Plus, she was still fully--overly--dressed. Sort of.

"That depends," said Jess, at least pushing the hood down off her sweaty hair. "Does my birthday suit count? Also, I think there's a sticker over my belly button. I'm not sure whether I'm hoping I put it there, or hoping I didn't."

At least her feet were bare, and she wiggled her toes down into the cooler sand.

"Nice apron."

"Nice to be beached with someone with excess clothing," said Jess, finally standing up and turning her back and letting the fuzzy monstrosity fall to the ground at her feet. An apron and a petticoat wasn't very dressed, but it was dressed enough. "Hi, I'm a very grateful Jess," she added as she started to put it on.

"I'm still working on where 'out here' even is," said Jess. She pushed her hair back off her face in an effort to get it out of the way and found chunks of...icing? It was the more pleasant of the options, anyway. "I think I might've come up here swimming a few times. It looks familiar in that vague kind of a way. But I'm pretty sure I wasn't swimming in that."

"I don't...." said Jess, looking a little uncertainly at the ring surrounding them, which she hadn't given much thought to until now. "I'm not sure there's any force in the universe that could make me summon something. But it does seem kind of odd. Maybe we were trapped by fairies?"

"Other than wanting to crawl into bed and smother myself in pillows?" said Jess. "I think I'll cope."

And now that she had demons on the brain, she was a little more eager to get moving. Taking a look around to make sure she had everything, weirdass costume not included, she picked up a sack off the ground and took a look inside.

Yep. It was definitely icing in her hair.

"Well, at least we have snacks for the road."

"I have a lot of...cake," said Jess, still peering into the...well, it was a pillowcase. Might as well call a spade a spade. "Also, cupcakes, muffins, and the remains of a cream puff, I think. I wouldn't eat that one."

"I have no idea what I would do with the rest of this after breakfast anyway," said Jess. It wasn't like she was going to take it home with her, for snacks. She wasn't even sure she wanted to eat it now. "Absolutely. It's all yours. Put the cat back in the bag."

"Because nothing can possibly go wrong with this plan," said Jess, holding it as wide open as she could, and hopefully out of clawing range.

Jess thought, as they successfully enbagged the cat, that she should have left a few more cream pastries in the bottom as enticement. She really wished she could remember where they'd come from, because even if she wasn't in a state to appreciate them at the moment that was some high-level work.

"We ready to hike now?"

"As long as we keep the mountain to one side of us, we'll be going generally in the right direction," said Jess. "There'll be a path before long. Somehow, there always is."

And very likely someone to actually see her in this get-up.

"Not a thing," admitted Jess, "which is kind of a relief under the circumstances. I'm probably better off not remembering just what I did to end up...well, the less said about it the better, huh? God knows how we ended up all the way out here, though."

"No way," said Jess, the image of her own costume still far too vivid in her mind. "If it had been a party, I would have been dressed as a sexy somethingorother. Unless I lost a bet, which I guess is possible."
