About the page...
There is a wonderful piece of British TV (which was actually French, but I digress) called "The Magic Roundabout" (a roundabout in this case being a carousel, not a traffic circle). It was on in the sixties and seventies and it was ten minutes of stop-motion magic. A character named Zebedee, who was basically a head on a spring, would end the show by announcing, "Time for bed." Sorry, no Zebedee here.
I usually model everything from scratch. Except for the occasional piece of cutlery or the like, I do it all. However, I was in a bit of a hurry and I went to the blender model repository and found a very nice toilet. Thanks, Jorge!
Oh, and Grace isn't completely naked. She's wearing a ribbon on the end of her braid.
The story thus far...
Grace and Simon, two teenage tearaways, have discovered a passage to Reality in the basement of The tré (a tiny theatre in their miniscule town of Otterstow). Unfortunately, they have accidentally trapped themselves and cannot return, although they do not seem to be in any hurry to do so.
Ignatius (the mayor of Otterstow) suspects this is the case and has enlisted the aid of the parents; Slide, Sandra, Pete and Gina. None of the adults have figured out how to open the passage, which seems to involve a mysterious box that they cannot open.
What's going on right now:
Grace and Simon are exploring the Rialto, which is the theatre on the other side of the passage.
They've just finished dinner, had a bath, used the marvellous fur dryer and are now off to bed.

Grace thought for a moment more. "Well, I'm not putting them on until I've had some proper kip for the night. Let's see if we can find a place to crash." With that, she scooped up her clothes and walked naked out into the hall.
Simon followed her, still pulling up his trousers.
Grace found a small bedroom with a modest bed in the corner. "Okay, Si, you know the drill."
Over the years, Simon and Grace had actually slept together many times, in the most literal sense of the phrase, i.e., they did nothing else besides sleep. During these many slumber sessions, Grace discovered that she was most comfortable when she slept almost directly on top of Simon. Simon actually found it to be very comfortable as well.
Ten minutes later, they were fast asleep with Simon wearing just his trousers and Grace as naked as the day she was born.
