"The Traveler's Cave"

Hello, and welcome! I hope you enjoy this story, "Arbitrary Travels: The Traveler's Cave", where Audrey accidentally discovers the Traveler's Cave and all its powers.

While she is settling in and learning the ways of Fairview Inn, Audrey is still new to being a resident, and there is so much more for her to learn - and discover. In this story, Audrey stumbles upon the Traveler's Cave while on one of her walks in the forest. Thus, she is suddenly exposed to the world of Traveling, where she and the other residents can use the cave to go to any known place, world, or time period. Naturally, though, the other residents are unsure of how Audrey will react to this knowledge. Can they trust her with the ability to Travel? Sure, Audrey's nice, but she hasn't been taught the guidelines of Traveling...so will she abuse the cave's powers?

Some notes about this story:

  • This story, "Arbitrary Travels: The Traveler's Cave" is the first Arbitrary Travels story I've ever created! Of course, the art and some dialogue have been updated since the story's first version.
  • Upon entering the pool within the Traveler's Cave, the water shoots up around the person(s) who enter the pool and surrounds them, transporting them to the Goddess of Travel. Then, they may request to Travel to a certain location or time period, or even ask to be transported to the current location of another person.
  • While Traveling is a wonderful opportunity for residents of Fairview Inn, and how many guests find the Inn in the first place, Traveling too much or without enough respect can anger the Goddess of Travel, preventing or disrupting Traveling.
  • To learn more about how Traveling works, you can read Arbitrary Travels's About page

Audrey Becoming a Resident at Fairview Inn

Hello, and welcome! This story is continued from How Audrey Found Fairview Inn, and shows the aftermath of Audrey's unintentional discovery of Fairview Inn. Here, Audrey's infatuation with the Inn convinces Mary, one of the Inn's overseers, that perhaps Audrey is more suited to living at Fairview Inn than she first believed. Thus, the process of Audrey becoming a resident begins.

This story among others will be part of a book for new readers called, "Arbitrary Travels: Introducing Fairview Inn!", which follows Audrey as she learns and adjusts to all the various parts of life at Fairview Inn. While some stories will only be available in the final book, most of the stories within "Introducing Fairview Inn!" will also be available on this website.

How Audrey Found Fairview Inn

Hello, and welcome! I hope you enjoy this story, where Audrey takes action to try and grow closer to her new friends, accidentally finding their true home - Fairview Inn.

This 10 page story takes place after Audrey has befriended some of the Inn's residents, who she only knows as fun, interesting, and very kind people. But, Audrey notices her new friends are acting distant with her, much to her dismay. Fearing that they don't actually like her - or worse, are using her like her old "friends" - Audrey tries her best to find out the truth. The truth, however, is something even she could never imagine as being real...

Some notes about this story (includes spoilers: you can read the above first!):

  • The blonde character in Audrey's nightmare is her old best friend, who bullied Audrey pretty badly and ultimately betrayed her when Audrey needed her help the most.
  • This is the first time this particular spirit appears before Audrey. She seems to have quite a fondness for Audrey...why is that? Perhaps we will find out in a later story...
  • This story will be continued in a full length book called, "Arbitrary Travels: Introducing Fairview Inn!", which will be available on this website once it is completed.
