    <p>

    OH MY GOODNESS!!! That was a serious typo on my part, though, *gives a bow, and lifts feathered cap off my head* Ms. Classy, err, Cathy, the title doesn’t go against you.

    </p><p>    LOL! Like there are a lotta adjectives that could probably describe me but I think crazy’s way higher than classy on that list lol. To be classy I’d have to be more…erhm, classy :P…</p><p>

    Yes, Ms. Classy certainly fits you. *decides to call you that from this moment forward*

    </p><p>   Ayawhamabob! lol *you’re joking right?*</p><p>

    here’s an image of Jericho:

    </p><p>    *me who thought Jericho was a boy; ‘that’s not a boy’ XD* She looks beautiful (and ready to kick some dragon butt :D)!</p><p>

    Hey guys, sry I was gone! I had a sleepover over the weekend, and then church where I found out that not only is a friend of mine leaving for, like, forever, but my pastor is moving too, which means our church might die or we’ll get a new pastor. Either way life is changing. A lot. BUT THAT DOES NOT MEAN I’M LEAVING!! To the contrary, writing is a great way to sort everything out, even find solutions (*cough cough* I did NOT just spend over an hour journaling. Nope. *cough cough*). So still here!

    </p><p>   I didn’t know a church could die if it didn’t get a new pastor, the church always assigns new priests to a parish in the Catholic church…I’m so sorry I couldn’t imagine what we’d do if our priest moved like that <3 *bowls over with a hug*</p><p>    (lol yea, I journal several times a week I usually write them like letters to God but a lotta times I just write like whatever <3)</p><p> </p><p> </p>

    odd, both old and young

    That is an excellent description. OH! Cool that she’s that old! ☺

    Nithel’s 7,000 years. give or give a decade. *coughs: hewasastar* But, he’s only been among men about four years.

    Wow, we all have older characters. Malvat somewhere between *thinks* 500 and 700 years old, I think. So not old compared to Nithel, Brendin, and Jericho. 🙂

     I didn’t know a church could die if it didn’t get a new pastor, the church always assigns new priests to a parish in the Catholic church…I’m so sorry I couldn’t imagine what we’d do if our priest moved like that <3 *bowls over with a hug*

    You’re Catholic? Cool! Aforementioned friend went to a Catholic school with his siblings for a while.

    And yeah, they can, but it doesn’t happen very often. We just have to find a new pastor, which took a LONG time last time (which I don’t remember). We’ll see what happens. 🙂 *hugs you back*

    (lol yea, I journal several times a week I usually write them like letters to God but a lotta times I just write like whatever <3)

    I do that too! I have my journal journal that’s full of pretty much everything under the sun, my “God” journal where I write out prayers and stuff, and my digital journal for… whatever. Mostly birthdays. 😛

    @kimlikesart,

    Does Malvat still understand? I don’t know…

    Nope. He’ll be really confused and kinda mad and kinda impressed. 🙂 He speaks all the languages of his world, but since he’s not in his world, he won’t understand that one.

    (And Nithel was a star once? SO COOL!)


    @skylarynn
    ,

    My hope is that Jericho has sufficiently distracted Malvat that Brendin’s words to Alessio go unnoticed.

    *salutes* Will do! I can’t wait to see how this conversation plays out. *rubs hands together and flexes fingers for typing*

    Brendin is only in his thirties, I’m pretty sure 500-700 tops that…

    Oh, whoops! I debated over that for a while, then decided that I was too lazy to check and trusted my memory. My bad memory. XD

    (And yes, 500-700 tops 30s, ha ha ha. :P)

    Do you think I should post Jericho’s reaction to Malvat or wait for Cathy to post so I can have Brendin doing stuff too?

    You can post at any time after someone else has posted!

    (And you can post again, when someone else hasn’t gone, if several days have passed.)

    Does that make sense?

     

    Go ahead! 😊

    *can not express the feeling of pure gid* Hee hee hee…. 🥰

    Perhaps that of the school child knowing they have a secret, which the bully knows about but in no way can understand…

    (And Nithel was a star once? SO COOL!)

    He was! Thank you.

    But, getting him to admit such… that would be a feat. Tis his only secret. 7,000 years out of his 7,004 year life. Not an easy thing to do. 😄

    Though… with a bit of prodding, he is amazing at telling stories. (When would our poor characters have time for that? I have no idea…) You may decide for yourself if they are true. (:

    What is it that Malvat thinks Jericho knows?  I just want to make sure.

    He think she knows that he can shapeshift. 😉

    @joelle-stone

    I think she has suspicions that he can do some warpy things based on how there’s three people in there.  And the fact that he’s clearly not like the dragons she knows (who only gained sentience after a good two decades or so).  Also out of curiosity, did he have any ideas of just dropping them in the lava if they asked him to carry them over?

    @skylarynn,

    Erm, only if they get aggressive. Malvat tends to think that a live slave is worth more than a dead foe. 🙂 He also likes to try and make friends before forcing people to work for him. He’s sly though, so tread carefully. 😉

    @joelle-stone

    Well, Jericho is pretty far on the wary side given her previous experiences (her student betrayed her, which led to the deaths of everyone she loved) and she’s learned the dangers of serving someone and how she can be used.  Brendin has also been rather horribly abused, and the fact that Malvat a) looks resemblant of a wyvern and b) speaks/sounds like Ingor aren’t helping.

    Speaking of I had an idea regarding Brendin: I have one particular prewritten scene I want to use but once that’s done I want Bren to disappear, and then come back soon after.  But when he comes back this will be after Brendin has gone through much character development and is a rather different person.  Also as a prerequisite he’ll kinda come back with a passenger (there’s a few secrets regarding his syne he’s unaware of).  By the time Bren comes back Jericho will likely be gone too.
    Does that sound workable to you?
