Well, this was it. Robin and Anastasia had been together for almost the entire four years of their college career. And now that they were graduating, it seemed that life was pulling them in different directions.

Anastasia was returning to Nova Scotia, with no plans to return to the US in the foreseeable future. And while Robin still wasn't sure where he was going from here, he did know that it wasn't there.

They stood in the concourse, neither quite sure what to say. Naturally, as Muppets, it came to them.

Anastasia reached out and stroked Robin's cheek. A band of buskers nearby spontaneously began to play. "Another turning point, a fork stuck in the road. Time grabs you by the wrist, directs you where to go. So make the best of the this test and don't ask why. It's not a question but a lesson learned in time. It's something unpredictable, but in the end is right. I hope you have the time of your life."

Robin swallowed the lump in his throat and kissed her hand. The buskers smoothly changed their tempo and style. "So take the photographs and still frames in your mind. Hang it up on a shelf, with good health and good times. Tattoos of memories and dead skin on trial. For what it's worth, it was worth all the while. It's somethin' unpredictable, but in the end is right. I hope you have the time of your life."

Their separate flights were announced right after the other. But they each cast one last look over their shoulder before boarding.

Graduation was rapidly approaching, and Robin was both exhilerated, and terrified. Maybe about half of the students who'd started as freshmen at this school when he had, were still here. Of those, many had changed their focus. Anastasia was still there, but had dropped most of the acting classes to focus on music. Pepe was still around of course, and still Robin's roommate. It was going to be so weird to say goodbye to him.

Pepe's plan was to return to Spain, at least for a while and try his luck there. "But I think what I really want to do okay," he'd said, "Is get into those Mexican Telenovelas." Robin had seen some of those. He could guess why Pepe was so interested.

Robin's main reason for fear, was that he actually wasn't sure what to do after graduation. There were so many options! Uncle Kermit of course had made it clear he was welcome to come live with him in Los Angeles and get a film and/or television career going. He still had brochures from every Masters Program he'd received for both music and acting. (and that was another thing, he wasn't sure if he should focus on music or acting)

But he wasn't sure he wanted to stay in school. He thought he'd like to venture out into the 'real world' for a while. But did he want to go to LA? He knew he didn't want to go back to Florida yet, or stay in New York. So where to go? What to do?

And then one day while doing laundry, he'd found a Fraggle Hole. And he decided that he knew what he would do that summer, at least.

The Spooky Manor was carefully maintained by the Von Spooky family to preserve it's forboding aspect. But it was perfectly structurally sound and clean as a whistle inside.

They didn't stay there during the winter though, due to all the broken windows. But the resident ghosts had been getting very depressed lately so they'd had some workmen...some brave workmen come in and secure the house against the cold. Artistic brave workmen, who could do the job and not ruin the intended ambiance.

And why had they done this? Because they didn't want Anastasia's guests to be unfomfortable for the big Solstice party. The idea was to fill the house with positive energy, to cheer up the ghosts, and, though the family would miss them, maybe help them move on.

So there was plenty of good food, and there gonna be games, and music, as much joy as could be generated.

The Fraggles got things started.

Open to any who want a good, cheerful, spooky time.
