Welcome to The Collectors’ Society Recruit Tour! I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am to share my recruit with you! Please note that, when I originally came up with this recruit, I was thinking of the movie that’s based on the book and, therefore, the movie version of this recruit/character. I haven’t read the book itself yet (Gasp! I know, I’m a bad Book Nerd!!!) But I DO plan to read it at some point! And from what I Googled, the book and movie are fairly similar. So everything I say about my recruit SHOULD hold true, either way!
So, without further adieu, I present to you my post for The Collectors’ Society Recruit Tour! Enjoy!

Subject: New Recruit and Mission
Message: Good morning, team. I would have preferred debriefing you in person but, unfortunately, I was called away to a timeline on a confidential mission. We have a new recruit to retrieve and bring back to the Institute, as well as a new mission that takes precedent above all else at the moment – a mission that may be more dangerous and, potentially, more wide-spread than the one that led you to The Forgotten Mountain.
First, I want to introduce our new recruit. His name is Atreyu and he hails from The NeverEnding Story.

The designation for this timeline is 1979END-TNS. Atreyu is a strong and loyal warrior who fought hard to save Fantastica from an evil called The Nothing. Without his help, Fantastica would have ceased to exist.
The NeverEnding Story is a story within a story. It tells the tale of a human boy named Bastian who stumbles upon the book that contains The NeverEnding Story. As Bastian read the book, he was pulled into the world of Fantastica and Atreyu’s mission and discovered that he alone could aid Atreyu and give Fantastica’s ruler, the Childlike Empress, a new name. By giving the Childlike Empress a new name, he saved Fantastica from further destruction.

Atreyu’s interactions with Bastian mean that Atreyu is at least somewhat familiar with the human world and the idea that “humans” create and influence stories, so the idea of timelines and catalysts won’t be a huge shock to him. It also stands to reason that, since Atreyu and Bastian are allies, we can bring Bastian on as a liaison for this timeline, as well.
And we will certainly need Bastian’s imagination and expertise. For someone has unleashed The Nothing (pictured below) from Fantastica and it is wreaking havoc on other timelines, as the Piper once did. We believe the thirteenth Wise Woman unleashed The Nothing as a way to exact her revenge against us for destroying her beloved.

Bastian was able to use his imagination to restore the damaged parts of Fantastica and we believe he can do this to help restore other timelines. Since he’s done it before, our hope is that he won’t be shocked or disbelieving when Atreyu contacts him and requests his aid.
Finn, I’d like for you and Alice to go to 1979END-TNS and find Atreyu. Bring him back to the Institute and begin training. Mr. Dawkins, I want you to go with them, in case they need back up.
Marianne, please meet with the Librarian and research The NeverEnding Story and The Nothing. We need to be fully prepared for what is to come – and the more we know, the more prepared we will be. Please be aware that The NeverEnding Story was also made into a movie. I do not know if the movie will aid or hinder your research as I do not know the extent of the differences from book to movie, but it doesn’t hurt to obtain as much information as you can.
Victor, Mary, I would like you to ensure we are stocked up on medical supplies, potions and the like. We don’t know what kind of damage this Nothing can inflict. Again, we must ensure we are prepared.
I will arrive back at the Institute late this evening. We will reconvene then and discuss all we have learned. It’s my hope that Finn and Alice will have Atreyu by then and that Marianne and the Librarian will have uncovered useful information that will help us in the upcoming battle.
All the best
