Your Stygian is asked to keep their study of order. Inside another hallway is a massive library, stretching out into floors and chambers upon chambers, with ladders stacked all directions connecting each intertwining bookshelves. The library is always moving, changing, adapting to find what you are looking for. What book will they find today?

- Feel free to instead of drawing/writing about them finding the book, write what the book is about. It can be about anything nonsensical, from a poem, to a drawing inside the book (like an "encyclopedia entry" of a made up thing), to whatever your heart desires. Make sure it isn't based off an actual existing IP (ie:"Harry Potter", "The Hunger Games"), you're free to use this book title generator here too:

- You only need to write about a small passage or a page, not the entire book.

[ Order - 004 - Solo - Plum (NYO69) - 5/31/18 - Prompt 1]

Plum could only read a little, and slowly, but she still found her way to the library. She shifted into her human form, finding it easier than using her hooves to pick through the shelves. Each colorful book cover reminded her of a wrapped gift, the titles embossed in blacks and golds and silvers, with the Authors perched on each like a "From:" tag. A ladder made the higher shelves accessible, and she walked respectfully between the rows, lingering longest in the "Fantasy" section. There were many books she would like to try and read, but she didn't have the whole day, and some of the thicker volumes would take her a long time to chew through.

The library itself seemed magic, and it always seemed something closer to what she was looking for (short, with pictures) and subjects to her interests (winter, gifts, The Woods). It was, she thought, a...very kind place.

It can't be for free, she thought again.

There were many volumes that perked her interest: "The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe", "The Gift Of The Magi", "A Christmas Carol".

In the end, she picked "Little Red Riding Hood".

It was a story about a good child who brought gifts to her grandmother: wine and cakes. She is warned to not wander far from the path. At a wolf's advice, she wanders deep into the woods to pick flowers, and the wolf takes the opportunity to devour her grandmother and, when she finally arrived, she too was eaten. A huntsman rescued them both (but things that enter a wolf's belly do not survive). In another version, the child did not wander from the path, and the wolf was drowned.

Plum wondered to herself if here, now, she was on a path...or if she had wandered at the enticement of beautiful flowers.
