Fred's wanted to go to the other island ever since she'd first heard it existed. Of course, there'd been the problem of her not really leaving the compound the entire first month she'd been in that dimension, and then spending a lot of time after that trying to get the bookshelf to give her anything but coloring books, romance novels, or ridiculously out of date physics texts. But now that there's a space station and a portal to it on the other island, she actually has a good excuse to explore there.

So maybe part of Fred gathering people together to search the second island for any more portals or oddities is that she's curious about how this island works compared to the one that everyone lives on. Maybe she thinks that there could be some key there to figuring out how to get off the island, since that's something she hasn't given up on yet.

Either way, they've all spent the day exploring, and after a while, it's not just Fred who seems tired. They've started to set up camp in a clearing, Fred putting up a makeshift tent with sticks and blankets before they all set about building a fire.

Of course there was the option of spending the night on the space station, but frankly, the whole disembodied robot voice thing is a little too creepy for Fred's tastes anyway. That, and even though all the instruments up there say they're safe, she can't shake the feeling that at some point, some door is going to open and they're all going to be sucked out into space.

"Anybody up for gathering firewood?"

Fred was starting to think she had this place almost figured out. Yes, it was another dimension, but at least this time, she wasn't alone there. She had Lorne, and Angel too. And even though he was an Angel from another dimension, he was still very much the same handsome and kinda broody champion she'd known back home. He was just a little younger and a little less with the knowing who she was.

Either way, friends were one thing she hadn't had while she was in Pylea. The other was a bookshelf full of books that constantly changed. Maybe she wouldn't get it right away, but eventually, it was bound to give her a book she needed. Statistically, it was really only a matter of time before she got the right book with the right incantation to take her back to the right dimension.

Of course, after that, there was the matter of getting the calculations right to find an inter-dimensional hot spot, but she wasn't thinking that far ahead yet. First, there were books. This was how she found herself in the rec room again, on the floor surrounded by all manner of books. She'd mostly just grabbed anything that looked helpful, and now was going about sorting the potentially useful ones from the ones she couldn't use at all.

She frowned, setting aside a large book written in some language she didn't think she had ever even seen before.

This was going to take a while.
