“Inception moves you, old friend?”
Approaching the hologram, its light became his as the King in Yellow drew with his finger in the air: 1-6-10. The numbers hung there, as if seared into the fabric of reality.
Sanura listened patiently as Frf’snrfl and Plikplik presented their ideas for an amusement park adjacent to The Institute. Some exciting ideas had been presented, with great enthusiasm on the part of the extremely fuzzy alien.
“Okay, so then we have a roller coaster, designed by Gaveshan. He’s so clever! Look at how much fun this is!” said Frf’snrfl, pointing to the drops, twists, and turns of the ride, flush with animatronics and holograms. “It’s kind of deadly, so we should make some changes.”
Moving on, the holo image changed to one of a modest, but beautifully designed multidimensional food court.

“And those are all fun foods that you can’t get in Sanura’s Joint, so our favorite bento restaurant is still the best, yay!” added Frf’snrfl.
Without warning, the air turned cold as thick mist rolled into the room from under the door. The lights extinguished themselves, except for the glow of the hologram. The door slid open to reveal the King in Yellow, a gaunt, enigmatic, and frankly unsettling creature from worlds beyond.

With that, he turned and began to float out of the room.
As he passed Sanura, she smiled and said, “Inception moves you, old friend?”
The King in Yellow slowly turned and fixed his gaze on the red cat. Then, he gave her a friendly wave and exited, the mist recoiling with him as the room warmed back up.
“Hey, he didn’t answer the question!” said Frf’snrfl.
