The gnome was a skilled time traveler who could be in many places in time, all at the same time.

Gnome Your Roots-

There once was a gnome  who lived under a fallen over tree.
The gnome was a skilled time traveler who could be in many places in time, all at the same time,
He used this skill to help him get his job done.
The gnome's job was to watch over the land, keeping evil spirits away and make sure they never return.
Twenty four hours a day, seven days a week, the gnome battled the evil spirits keeping the land warm and whole for years and years.
Until one day, the gnome gave up the fight.
Not because he grew weak or ill, but because a new, worse problem arose.
The problem was Everyone started being untrue to themselves, and only doing what's "in" or"the latest fad".
The fact that everyone would rather be fake and fit in, than be true to themselve and be a little outside of the box made the gnome mad.
So out the gnome went just like before ,but only this time he was to get rid of all the untrue souls.
One by one the gnome would eradicate every untrue soul to keep the land warm and whole.
Untill one day, the gnome started noticing more and more evil.
The gnome simply could not get rid of the evil spirits and the untrue souls at the same time, it would be way to hard.
So the gnome thought his new job shouldnt be to fight the evil spirits or the untrue souls ,but to watch over all the true people and all the people that know their roots.
So out the gnome went, time traveling throughout his land.
Taking post, watching over, protecting all the true people from evil spirits and untrue souls ,and reminding them all to.
