I sat on the wall after class, nervously poking the strap of my backpack. It was the first day of school after Spring Break, and had been the most stressful I'd ever endured. Or at least, the most stressful this year. The wishing stone, and everything that came from it, had been a disaster. Any thought of my grandfather's 'death' had quickly been put aside in the struggle to deal with the fallout of teenagers possessing near unlimited power over space and time. It was a miracle that I'd managed to salvage this much of my old life. If you could really call the present situation salvaged.

I was waiting to catch a glimpse of Karyn. Before I received the stone, she'd been my best friend for longer than I'd cared to mention. Things had changed since that day, and not for the better. She'd been gone over Spring Break, like she always was. That was perhaps the only thing the stone hadn't changed in some way over that catastrophic year. I'd always missed her during Spring Break before. As kids we'd essentially been attached at the hip. But say I was nervous was an understatement.

Time heals all, they say. But healing tends to leave scars. And we'd both been through a lot.

(Inspired by conversation in Discord, this thread is intended to deal primarily with the fallout of various shenanigans inspired by the stone. For that purpose, don't worry too much about what wishes were actually made to change things so much as what the changes are and how any of the characters deal with them. In addition, consider the Stone to have vanished by now. No wishing the characters' problems away. Beyond that, go wild. Nothing is too strange, nothing is too clich├ęd. The only rule from here on out is that anything that's changed since the original episode is Permanent with a capital P.)
