    @kimlikesart,

    Love your new pfp!

    And about Nithel (sry for the late response), I’m cool with it! Way to make Malvat more suspicious and hostile… XDDDD *has been thinking about adding another character but isn’t sure I can keep up with two*

    Hi Kimmi! *waves* School’s fine, writing is fluctuating between extremely-difficult/everything-I-write-is-trash and OH-MY-WORD-I-CAN’T-BELIEVE-HOW-MANY-WORDS-I-GOT/I-LOVE-THIS-PIECE!!! XD What about you?

    Allo! I love your profile picture. <3

     

    That’s good about school.
    And so true! That’s sort of like me. It’s more of… ‘I just have to get this first draft written. It looks horrible, but I can fix that later…’ And telling myself that over and over so I don’t get stuck too long trying to make it perfect now. 😄

     

    And Malvat… *grrrrr* You want to burn my boy in lava. *eyes narrow* *grrrrrr*
    But… he won’t be the last to wish that… 😒

    *tumbles in late!*
    KIMMI!!!!!!!!! *bowls over with hug, squeezes tight* YAY THE CASTLE IS BACK!!!!

    How have you been?

    Alive lol!!!
    I’m already looking at Christmas presents for all my siblings BECAUSE THIS YEAR I’LL FINALLY DO IT I’LL FINALLY GET THEM ALL SOMETHING THEY REALLY LIKE!!!!! LOL, it’s a running challenge in my family cos all of us are really hard to buy for apparently and generally whatever a sibling wants that they haven’t bought or found a creative way to download/otherwise obtain yet it’s because it’s price is “too extravagant” to spend on themselves. So we have to expertly spy on each other to figure out what “it” is AND that it keeps expectations. So far Daddy and @rusted-knight are the hardest because they either don’t even mention it or are already saving to buy it and also WE have to keep within our price range and with a ton of siblings we can easily drop a round hundred for $10-15 gifts per person. So lol it’s a huge challenge and literally the only holiday we really get into!!
    Plus researching for a newsletter for a Manga my brother and I have been working on together!
    How have you been? (:

    Is school going well/not so good/amazing/something else? <3

    TOTALLY AWESOME! Seeing as I’m uh not doing any :D. Lol, I’m studying JavaScript, email-marketing, art, animating and a couple other things with all my free time now until I take a two-year course in graphic design, probably January XD. School been good for you?

    How is writing?

    WAY TOO MANY PROJECTS WHY DID I DO THIS TO ME???? I’m co-writing a Prohibition-era steam-punk comic book series with my brother, trying to squeeze in shortstories, and working on Alessio’s story aaaaand actually three castles and idk how many topics XD. Hbu? What’s Nithel’s story about? Is that the story you’re currently on? Can I beta read it when you’re ready? How’s it going? An–…XD
    😊


    @anne_the_noob14
    LIVI!!! YOU WITH THE HILARIOUSU QUOTE YAY YOU’RE BACK!!!!

    Oooh nice!! (Just read your results from the character quiz haha) And yes. Coffee is… *chefs’ kiss *

    Lol thanks that was a fun quiz (and inspired me to try and write my own which said project has not happened XD)
    And coffee!! Vital to human existence and also caffeine’s technically a poison and if that doesn’t convince you to drink coffee then you’re just *gasp of horror* normal!! *normal people are so creepy*

    (Edit: In case any of y’all want to keep up with me easier / more reliably [and I know some of y’all don’t share contact info and that’s totally fine], I have Instagram, Discord, and Google Hangouts that I check pretty often, so I can share that with y’all if you want. I’d love to chat with y’all more than I do.)

    Oooh I’d love that tho I can’t promise I’ll be a consistent…alien 😆I’ve never been on any of those platforms so I’m gonna see if I can’t figure out Discord 🙃

    Wow… Very good Cathy.

    XD Heh thanks 😊 XD

    Coffee… bleh. *disgusted face* No offense to any of you coffee-lovers, of course.

    some taken 😋

    @this-is-not-an-alien,

    So far Daddy and @rusted-knight are the hardest

    LOL, same (except I don’t have a brother)!! We’ll try and get my dad something really cool for his birthday, and then a month or less before his birthday he unpacks it from an Amazon box. *facepalm* Poor guy, he got COVID for his birthday this year. 🙁

    some taken

    XD Sorry, then. 😛

    The Castle:
    😄
    Oui! It is!!!

    I’ll bring older Nithel in when they’ve escaped/left this room… *watches/reads eagerly/waits*

    Christmas: 
    Ooh… that makes sense… I hope you find things!
    My grandma always tries to get my dad to say what he’d like for Christmas. Last year he said ‘nothing’, but on further badgering, he said ‘money’.
    My grandma wrapped twenty one-dollar bills in different boxes. 😄

    School:
    Ooh! Email marketing sounds fun!!! *hides*
    Are you liking most of the things you’re doing?
    School’s going pretty well for me! (:

    Writing: 
    Oooh. That’s fun you’re writing with him!
    Short stories can be fun. 🙃
    ALESSIO!!!!!!!!! Ahem…
    Many different writing things…

    Nithel:
    At the moment I’m drafting a slice-of-life, and brainstorming another book. BUT- I do intend to one day write Nithel’s story, and I find myself imagining his life still, the different people, different scenarios still…
    When I finish Nithel’s story, because I will, I’ll let you know! Thank you, Cathy!!!

    That said, if you’re interested in a biblical fiction… set during the time of Jesus… I would be glad to let you read it. (But that is a completeeeeeely different genre, so I understand if no.) 😄

    (And wilkommen. Alessio truly is well-written. <3)

    AND YES, HELLOOO :DDD (you’re learning Java?? ) Lemme know if/when you get Discord and I’ll add you as a friend :)))

    HEY!!! (:
    Lol, I’ve been told in my course to NEVER EVER call it Java instead of JavaScript cuz those are two different codes but yes I’m totally learning it! (*“learning”–of course–being kinda halfway doing exercises/practice work/study cards while surfing with 10-20 tabs up but that was how I studied for my learner’s drivers’ licence so…XD*) What all are you studying that ya like? 🙂
    Oh yes! I absolutely will as soon as I murder that thing that keeps telling me I can’t register right now!!! *blink* huh, maybe it’s because I lied about my birthday and just clicked the top month day year (lemmie see 2018 in 2021 LOL I TOLD THEM I WAS THREE!!! Ok so I better make myself born in 1990 :D)
    Oh…is Discord like face-time coz I’m not supposed to do that? I can do texting tho! 🙂 *wandering through ‘what’s this button doo?’ literally everywhere on Discord! Ooooh 0.0*
    So what the heck is this thingy I just made an account for? XDD

    LOL, same (except I don’t have a brother)!! We’ll try and get my dad something really cool for his birthday, and then a month or less before his birthday he unpacks it from an Amazon box. *facepalm* Poor guy, he got COVID for his birthday this year.

    Oh noo your poor dad! Is he better now?
    IKR!!! THE WORST PART ABOUT ORDERING ON AMAZON IS YOUR SIBLINGS CAN CHECK YOUR SEARCH HISTORY!!!!!!!!!! Around Christmas my mom will yell to anyone who touches an Amazon package (Daddy included) “DON’T LOOK DON’T ASK QUESTIONS YOU KNOW WHAT TIME OF THE YEAR IT IS!!!” And then there was that one time I thought for sure I’d get Mom a movie she LOVE coz it was a movie she’d watched before and just loved and like the week of Christmas I walk into their room and glance up at the TV and it’s the movie I ordered for her for Christmas and I just kinda 0.0 and she’s like “…” and me *screams of agony* my mom *falls over laughing hysterically*
    Also HA YES NOW THE VILLAIN MALVAT IS BEING VILLAINOUS I’VE BEEN WAITING FOR THAT WITH SO MUCH ANTICIPATE FOR SO LONG!!!!!!

    XD Sorry, then.

    Lol sick coffee-hater 😉 Oh I keep meaning to comment on your website but I’m always forgetting, I loved that Atlantis shortstory and like all the shortstories! And the interviews!

    The Castle: Oui! It is!!! I’ll bring older Nithel in when they’ve escaped/left this room… *watches/reads eagerly/waits*

    Oh man, can’t wait to see!

    Christmas:  Ooh… that makes sense… I hope you find things! My grandma always tries to get my dad to say what he’d like for Christmas. Last year he said ‘nothing’, but on further badgering, he said ‘money’. My grandma wrapped twenty one-dollar bills in different boxes.

    I think I actually have my brothers and my sister covered (once I gauge prices and everything but it should be pretty good I have backups for them too! Update: SHOOT, @rustedknight bought the movie I was gonna buy him for Christmas!!!!!!!! *luckily I have backups 🥰) NOW the grownups!!! Ugh I take it back Mom and Dad are hard to buy for!!!!! Lol, I still have three months tho.
    LOL, that’s so cute!!! Like the texting; A; ‘what kinda cake do you want for your birthday’ + B ‘I don’t want cake’= a cake shaped like the text bubble with ‘I don’t want cake’ on top (I saw that somewhere on Pinterest 😁) It’s an absolute must for the people who won’t tell you what they want for Christmas, birthday, etc. My little brother won’t tell Mom what books he likes so now I tell her and he acts very indignant but the devours the books he gets (: (he also regularly pummels me in video games so that’s love! :D) *sigh* he’s the cutest thing!

    School: Ooh! Email marketing sounds fun!!! *hides* Are you liking most of the things you’re doing? School’s going pretty well for me! (:


    *evil smirk*
    @EVERYBODY KIMMI HAS THE AWESOMEST NEWSLETTER IT’S AWESOME SHE’S AWESOME AND SUBSCRIBE TO IT RIGHT NOW IF YOU HAVEN’T ALREADY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    😎😁🤭 *I honestly couldn’t decide which one best fit my mood 😂*
    I actually have enjoying a lot of what I’ve been doing now, I feel more and more like I have a say in my own life now and of course it’s been bumpy here and there but I made that choice and it’s worth it. Guess that’s growing up, I’ve been collaborating more and more with my siblings and I can’t wait to work this newsletter with my brother and hone in on my art for it and figure out animating…and music and voice-acting for some weird reason and dance, I’m still trying to keep up with dance and…man I have a lot of projects lol! There’s just so much to do and experience and learn!!! And I’ve decided I’m gonna really enjoy graphic design and roll with any opportunities life gives me along the way 🙂

    Writing:  Oooh. That’s fun you’re writing with him! Short stories can be fun.

    YES! We ended up writing together coz he gave me his first draft and I was kinda “ooh interesting ideas and can I do this with you also cos Mom told me to stop writing my story and spend more time being social so this counts 😇?” And somewhere in there it evolved from a novel to a Manga and we’ve gone from pilots and wars to spy intrigue and mythical superpowered tribes and lost princesses XD. The favorite character so far is Ehud who was born due to a plothole where this minor two-three scene character just kinda steals a torpedo and attaches it to his plane entirely off-screen!!! And I read this like: 0.0 and my brother’s like “what?” Now it’s 100% believable for Ehud and doesn’t even faze anybody in the “fandom”
    So lol…it’s been fun. 😀
    I love writing shortstories now! I’ve shortstoried story concepts to get a rounded idea of a key point/theme/plot, I even did that with Alessio’s story once! You write shortstories? Can I read them? *insert huge puppy eyes*

    ALESSIO!!!!!!!!! Ahem… Many different writing things…

    *reddens and ducks behind first available book* I love my little morbid cupcake…
    Oh yes so many writing things sounds like the story of my life! XDD

    Nithel: At the moment I’m drafting a slice-of-life, and brainstorming another book. BUT- I do intend to one day write Nithel’s story, and I find myself imagining his life still, the different people, different scenarios still… When I finish Nithel’s story, because I will, I’ll let you know! Thank you, Cathy!!!

    Ooooh! Yeah so many books to write!! And I will totally beta read for you whenever you want!!! *insert super huge puppy eyes* Yes!!!

    That said, if you’re interested in a biblical fiction… set during the time of Jesus… I would be glad to let you read it. (But that is a completeeeeeely different genre, so I understand if no.)

    Would I like to read it…yes yes YES!!!! *accidentally hurtles off table with last ‘yes’ and topples to the ground with a sheepish grin*

    (And wilkommen. Alessio truly is well-written. <3)

    Wow thanks! He’s been my baby for four years and I…really threw all my darkest demons into him, so growing to see he’s still a really loveable character and pretty decent person after all has really helped me 🙂

    @this-is-not-an-alien,

    Oh noo your poor dad! Is he better now?

    Yep, he’s doing fine! I’m really the only one with lingering COVID symptoms. *glares at COVID symptoms*

    IKR!!! THE WORST PART ABOUT ORDERING ON AMAZON IS YOUR SIBLINGS CAN CHECK YOUR SEARCH HISTORY!!!!!!!!!! Around Christmas my mom will yell to anyone who touches an Amazon package (Daddy included) “DON’T LOOK DON’T ASK QUESTIONS YOU KNOW WHAT TIME OF THE YEAR IT IS!!!” And then there was that one time I thought for sure I’d get Mom a movie she LOVE coz it was a movie she’d watched before and just loved and like the week of Christmas I walk into their room and glance up at the TV and it’s the movie I ordered for her for Christmas and I just kinda 0.0 and she’s like “…” and me *screams of agony* my mom *falls over laughing hysterically*

    Oof, poor you!! I have that problem sometimes… 😛 Honestly I kinda just gave up on gifts and write cards now. Most of my family seems to like those better anyway. *kinda stresses out over gifts anyway* *like majorly*

    Also HA YES NOW THE VILLAIN MALVAT IS BEING VILLAINOUS I’VE BEEN WAITING FOR THAT WITH SO MUCH ANTICIPATE FOR SO LONG!!!!!!

    YAY GOOD HIS VILLAINOUS SIDE IS SHOWING!!
