-> wear ferocious expression

You assemble ferocious-looking expression from the Mr. Potato Head parts and put it on. The cook for the traveling performers comes for you but is terrified by your expression and flees.

-> Run away from barn

With all the strength you can muster, you give a mighty leap and manage to get out of the barn! You dash across the meadow, ignoring the little girl's cries to "Come back and be frands with me!". You pick up speed, becoming a fuzzy white blur, and only one thing (other than "Keep running 'til you can run no more!") crosses your mind, which was a quote from a book that you remember reading as a child (or kit?) : All the world will be your enemy, Prince with a Thousand Enemies, and whenever they catch you, they will kill you. But first they must catch you.

Struggling to get your bearings in your panicky run, you

-> look

You are in a remote corner of the field. Far off you can hear cries of "Hear bunnybunnybunny!" and "Why doesn't he wanna be frands wid meeee?" and "I'm pretty sure it was a she, actually".

You realise that there is a cleft in the ground ahead of you. Peering down it you see that it is the opening you emerged from! Perhaps you can get back down and talk to the blue-bearded man! The ground around you is also littered with small yet pungent yellow flowers, as well as small, red insects that seem to feed on them.

However, with a sudden feeling of trepidation, you realise you are not alone. The performers' bull is standing beside the cleft, and does not look happy. It gazes at you angrily over its twirly moustache.

-> Wear impressed expression.

You put on an impressed expression from the Mr Potato Head, which you cleverly brought along.
The bearded man exclaims, "Well, it's about time!" Now that you look sufficiently impressed, he takes you into protective custody.

-> Snuggle up to blue bearded man.

You feel relief wash over you, and you gratefully hop into the blue bearded man's arms and snuggle with him. Maybe this adventure won't be so bad after all?

"Hmmph. At least you're now expressing an adequate response to THE BLUE ELDER DRAGON." He glares at you and you nod pitifully as though to show him that you're very impressed by his tremendously blue beard. "Right then. If you promise not to hurt it again, I can tell you what's going on. You may have already gathered from my swift appearance that I have certain...powers...powers imbued with powers...by the BLUE ELDER DRAGON." You are confused; this person is clearly mad and has a terrible way of expressing himself. You recall your human days and how annoyed you were whenever people had no idea what they were saying. Clearly this is a stupid, silly and possibly crazy person. His stupidity leaves you with no desire to be around him any longer and you are tempted to hop off. You are also aware that this might be a test. Maybe he could help you, after all. Or maybe you could try to intimidate him with another expression. Or, just maybe....

-> Jump into beard and make beard wear expression.

 Which expression would you like the beard to wear?

OPTIONS:
1) Ferious
2) Impressed
3) Happy
4) Sad
5) Excited

-> make beard wear excited expression

"OMIGOD OMIGOD OMIGOD" says the man, seemingly overpowered with excitement, "have you SEEN this place I mean it is like I mean totally you have NO IDEA HOW how amazing this is I mean there's all the OH GOD THE RABBITS THERE ARE LIKE RABBITS everywhere I mean seriously dude rabbits loads of rabbits or maybe bunnies, are they the same thing I think they're the same thing and OH OH OH OH I TOTALLY have to tell you about the BLUE ELDER DRAGON that's, I think that's really important, like REALLY important and did I mention OMIGOD ALL THE BUNNIES"

He continues like this for some time. Maybe you should pick a different expression?

The beard freezes open. It now appears to be made of iron. Cautiously you peer inside and see a spacious room concealed within it. Dare you go in?

-> Look

You are in a spacious room, with a bed, a table and chair, everything you could need to live in comfort! You take a step forward, and freeze in your tracks. There is a presence here, and it's watching you ominiously...

Suddenly, from all around (or so it seems), a voice booms to you, "You! What do you want? Why are you intruding? Speak!"

-> Speak

When the voice commands you to speak, you suddenly find that you are able to speak in a human voice again. "Please - I'm just a person who was turned into a rabbit. Can you help me to become human again?"

Also:
"Ferious? What the heck is 'ferious'? How am I supposed to act out a mood if I don't even know what it is?"

See, I couldn't decide if it had been meant to be "ferocious" or "furious" or indeed "ferrous"... though I was pretty certain it wasn't meant to be "ferrous" :P

I had assumed "furious." "Ferocious" hadn't occurred to me. XD

I was writing "ferocious" before I scrolled up to check whether that had been used yet, and kind of forgot about the post until later (much later) and then added some more random ones. :P After that, "ferrous" seemed like the closest I could get with losing a minimal amount of face. :P

I think this topic got sidetracked by the "ferious" discussion. Who wants to go next? (Last post repeated above.)

The old man stares at you with a mixture of shock and boredom.

"It's always the same with you people, isn't it? First you beg to be turned into a rabbit, then you can't wait to stop being one. Well, fine, I can help, a little. But you'll have to do something for me first. The Blue Elder Dragon is starving and has been reduced to this withered form; find the Magical Ancient Cup-Grail of Utmost Filigree Finery of the Idiot Nymphs and fill it with-"

Suddenly the man lets out a scream and disappears in a puff of purpure smoke. It appears you've been discovered. You flee into a corner, your tiny bunny form trembling as you hide behind a collection of rocks and await the terrible monster that caused the great wizard to flee. A fluffy grey kitten bounds into the center of the room. It appears the wizard is something of a wuss. You determine to find these Idiot Nymphs and ask about this cup, but have no idea how to proceed from here.

Do you:

-> ask the kitten
-> sniff the kitten
-> attack the kitten
-> ignore the kitten
-> leave this wretched place, nevermind the very cute kitten
