The first thing he notices when the world feels like it stops moving is that the air around him feels very different. He's scared to open his eyes, knowing without a doubt that something has happened, that he and Tehodis have definitely been moved somewhere, and he's not so sure he's ready to believe in this at all, let alone see it.
But eventually, his curiosity, and an excited fluttering in his chest compels him to open his eyes, and he is floored by what he sees.
Tehodis, not nearly as hesitant, has already opened hers, and is already on her feet, looking around. The two of them are on top of what appears to be a gigantic mushroom, colored a rosy pink color, and all around them are similar mushrooms growing in different lengths. Rivers of molten lava seem to be arcing through the very sky somehow, not a drop of it dripping out or causing any harm, and Endless follows the arc of one of them with his eyes, trying to see where it comes from, and this ends up causing him to peak over the edge of their mushroom. It's a long, long way down, and he can see one of the lava rivers eventually coming to its source down there, oozing freely from an opening in the ground. Incidentally, the ground far below appears to be completely black, and despite the presence of lava everywhere, there's lots of flourishing plant life.
He lifts his eyes back up to look at Tehodis, but he sees her own gaze locked on one of the many other things that dot the sky (and there is just too much to name - strange bugs, possibly fairies, a distant dragon or two, weird objects that look like balloons made out of flowers, and it goes on and on). Endless follows her gaze, and he sees the thing that's caught her attention. Far off from their big mushroom, there is what looks to be a city. Or a town? Or something similar to them. It doesn't quite look... modern, though. The buildings are all in various vibrant colors, and nothing about them looks as though it was made from stone or wood or anything Endless has seen before.
"Wow..." he manages. He has no idea what else to say. He has no idea how to even make sense of what he's seeing, let along process it. He gets to his feet properly and steps up beside her. "Tehodis, is this..." He knows that what he is about to ask must be a stupid, stupid question, but he has to be sure, and she seems to know more than he does about this. "Is this it? Is this the... Feywild?"
What appears to be a raging blizzard encapsulated into a sphere suddenly goes flying by, very close to where he is standing, and he startles with an embarrassing squeak and falls backwards to get out of its way. The mushroom makes a similar squeak when he lands on his behind on it, and the little blizzard-ball just keeps on going its way, unbothered by having nearly crashed into him. "Or maybe we're just having a very vivid dream," he says.
