The Song of Her Fostern Challenge
When Starbucks returns, DC is still there with his arms behind his back and Carrion still on his shoulder. He smiles gently to her.
"I couldn't understand what the howl said, but the fact that neither Danny nor Carrion cracked up or looked offended tells me that you said what was needed for official stuff. And that's a me problem, nothing wrong with what you did."
He takes a deep breath and fixes his attention on her.
"Starbucks, in order to prove that you are worthy of being a Fostern Ragabash, I suggest the challenge known as 'Riddle Me This'. You are to discover a riddle that has no answer, and once you have presented this riddle and found that none are able to answer it, I will accept that as proof you live up to Gaia's expectations of our Auspice."
He then looks to Danny for confirmation.
On March 18th, Starbucks returns to DC. In her hands she brings a piece of paper. "Would this work?" She has a mirthful grin on her face.
She hands him the paper that is a printout of this webpage:
WoW Unsolvable Riddle
DC smiles to Starbucks' return and looks at the piece of paper. As soon as it clicks with what it is on the page he bursts out laughing.
"Oh... oh wow..." He continues to giggle. "Starbucks, I asked you to find me a riddle with no answer... and you brought me an unsolvable riddle. That... that to me fulfills the requirements of the quest." He takes a deep breath after the giggles subside. "You should seek out Danny and we can let him know."
People of the Sept of Gathering Tides, some time ago, the Cliath known as Starbucks came to me to begin her challenge for the rank of Fostern. I set her a challenge to find me a riddle with no answer and present it to me for my assessment.
I am pleased to announce that she went above and beyond my request, she thought outside the box and indeed presented me with a riddle that indeed had no answer to it.
Thus, I see her to have accomplished the requirements, and should now be recognised as the rank of Fostern, and in light of the unique and cunning way in which she had approached the challenge, I see it fit to grant her the deed name of Unsolvable Riddle.
Please join me in celebrating her achievement!
Fostern of the Children of Gaia
