@naiya-dyani Thank you!
Your characters seem fun too!! I like how you portray them so vividly. 🙂December 2, 2019 at 4:54 pm #102271
@sam-m Oh, thanks! 😀

@urwen-starial Grace: *smiles coldly* Oh, so you find this funny, do you, Kirat?
Kiet: *sees the look in her eyes* *holds up hands* Okay, um, this is getting a little. . . you know, why don’t you two talk this out? This doesn’t look like it’s going anywhere good. And before you do, Grace, could you hand me that dagger of yours?
Me: What dagger?
Grace: *rolls eyes* You think I’d go to that level just yet? Sheesh, I’m still working up to going that far for people like–
Gerik: *walks in and lifts chin*
Grace: *narrows eyes* I thought you were gone.
Gerik: *glaring at Kiet* I had unfinished business.
Tai and Dari: *step in front of Kiet*
Kiet: *pales but stands his ground*
Me: Gerik, you’re not in the book right now. If you so much as touch Kiet, I will damage you. Or maybe I’ll find some space in Veraza’s closet.
Gerik: *says something in Aboreil that I can’t imagine is polite*
*sigh* Hopefully that takes care of him. Gerik. . . is a gem.

Kirat: excuse me?!
Me: *sweats and nervously laughs* I’m sure you two have places to be… Like closets?!
Kirat: *glares at me* I still haven’t forgiven you for leaving me on that deserted island, with nothing but two sea turtles and rum!!!!
Me: I hope you followed Captain Jack’s tactic and came back safely.
Rhioe: Well Naiya… It certainly seems that Gerik is a little… Gem…

@urwen-starial Oh dear. . . good luck, Kirat! XD
Gerik: What’re you looking at, Rhioe?
Me: Wow, you’re in an even more foul mood than usual. Listen, you have to be at least civil to everyone.
Gerik: *glares* Oh, so you’re worried about everyone now, huh? Not just your precious Kiet? *clenches fists and approaches me threateningly*
Me: *isn’t used to characters coming after me instead of other characters* Hey, now, what are you–
Kiet: *steps in front of me with a lot more fire in his eyes than you normally see* Gerik, back off.
Me: *remembers I’m actually in charge here* Hey, yeah, he’s right! Back off or it’s to the closet with you!
Gerik: *gives both me and Kiet a death glare but stalks off*
Me:*hugs Kiet* Thanks, Kiet. Have I mentioned you’re, like, my favorite character?
Kiet: *blushes* I mean, I kind of had to do something. You did make me. *glances warily at Gerik now that I’m safe*
Me: Don’t worry about him. I’m not letting him do anything else from now on in the book.
Grace: That only does so much good, since he has (BLEEP) after him now and Gerik (BLEEPITY BLEEP BLEEP) already. (Can’t spoil anything in case I put the story here for beta reads sometime 😛 )
Me: Would you hush, Grace? We don’t need that kind of realism around here.

Oh gosh, things have escalated in my absence, I see.
Kirat, seeing as you’re fine, I’m sure you’ll survive.
Grace, be calm.
Gerik, back off or I’ll have to get Eina over here to keep the peace.
Eina: *yelling from the distance* Don’t you dare!
Me: *ignores her*

Okay. This is a good point. I’ll probably be on your side after I read your story. But that hasn’t happened yet, so…
"You can dance with my henchman."December 4, 2019 at 11:18 pm #102360
Gerik: *glaring at Rhioe* What would you call it, then? *narrows eyes at me* There’s only so much you and your author friends can do, anyway. I’m not scared of a stupid closet.
Me: I have my ways.
Gerik: *snorts* Such as?
Me: *swallows* If it comes down to it, I’ll bring Arashi in. But I don’t want to have to resort to that. Not only do I not want to unleash that kind of evil on this thread, but I also don’t want to revive traumatic experiences for–
Kiet: *goes white and disappears into the branches of a nearby tree*
Me: Oh, dear–Kiet, it’s okay! That’s only a last resort. . . *sighs* Now look what you’ve made me do! . . . Anyway, Kirat, I feel for ya, buddy. Your story is pretty rough! *hugs you regardless of your possible feelings on the matter* Although I’m sure there’s a reason?

@naiya-dyani Oh, I’m sure.
Oh no. Gerik. That is it. Eina gets to come and keep the peace. *calls to Kiet* It’s okay! Naiya won’t have to bring this Arashi person in!
Eina: *from a distance* Oh no you don’t! *suddenly appears in the middle of the room and glares at me*
Me: Right. Eina, you go make sure Gerik stops causing trouble.
Eina: Remind me why this is my job, again?
Me: Because you’re good at scaring people when you want to.
Eina: Who says I want to? *still glaring*
Me: Well, the look you’re giving me at the moment is kinda worrying.
Eina: Well, scare you, yeah. But I don’t want to get involved with the rest of them. *waves hands vaguely in the direction of the other people in the room*
Me: Eina Vivianne Firestar, go do it or I’ll kill everyone you know again.
Eina: *freezes* *tenses* *glares harder than anyone has ever glared before* *growls* *turns around on her heel and stalks over to Gerik* Behave or you’ll regret it. Got it? *somehow manages to look intimidating even though she’s only 5.2
the double short swords and general battle hardened “mess with me and die” attitude might have something to do with it*
Me: *crosses arms and grins*

@kari-karast Gerik: *flinches at the death glare Eina is giving him* *shoots me a look* What did I do? I literally only talked!
Me: *ignores him* Kiet, please–it’s okay. I’m not bringing him in here.
Kiet: *doesn’t answer*
Gerik: *marches over to the tree and looks up* Quit acting like a coward. You’re not fooling anybody. I know you can’t wait for him to get here so you can join him and wreak havoc! *gets red in the face and looks at me* I actually WANT you to bring Arashi in. I’ve seen his work. He should get a taste of his own medicine.
Me: Gerik, shut up for once! If Arashi were actually here, you’d be dead by now. And quit being a jerk to Kiet. Eina, could you escort him to the closet, please? He has no weapons. He should be no real trouble.

Eina: Fine. *stalks over to Gerik* *debates grabbing his wrist and dragging him to the closet for a minute* *realizes that probably won’t work* *pulls out swords instead (one’s 1 1/2 feet long the other’s 2 feet long) and points one at Gerik* C’mon. Into the closet. Don’t try anything.
Me: *watches anxiously*
"You can dance with my henchman."December 5, 2019 at 10:48 pm #102386
@kari-karast, heh, heh,. . . Kirat’s been through a lot. (cough and still is cough)
Kirat: *glares at the closet, then at Veraza* There is NO WAY I am going back in there. Especially with him. *Gestures to Gerik*
Me: Kirat be kind.
Rhioe: Gerik is so sweet. IK’m sure he’s just really misunderstood. . .
Me: *looks at Rhioe in amazement* Either you’re crazy, or you just want him to kill you.
Rhioe: *looks off dreamily into the distance* I only try to see the best in people. . .

@urwen-starial Poor guy. *gives him hot chocolate*
You can have a separate closet if necessary, Kirat.
Uh… do I need to supply Rhioe with a personal forcefield…?
"You can dance with my henchman."December 5, 2019 at 11:05 pm #102389
Me: She’s not going to hurt anyone, but I’m not sure about anyone else *glances around the room*
Kirat: Hey! You made me, surely you know me better than that *bats eyes innocently*
Me: yes, and that’s exactly why I’m not trusting you.
