    In the Fantasy Writers forum, there’s two threads for this stuff.  The Character Castle thread we are currently writing on, where we discuss characters and future ideas and also just chat generally, and the actual Fantasy Character Castle Chronicles no.1 where we write the story about the characters.

    Thanks my friends I’m not confused anymore (that was a lie) XD

    So I’m going to go post on the other thread and then hope I don’t mess up too bad…

    CATHY THAT WAS A BRILLIANT SUMMARY!!

    Oh thank you!! 😂❤️At the end of it I was kinda like “dang all our characters actually did all that here, huh…”

    Y’know, reading that Alessio likes Bren so much, I think I’ll just swap Jericho out with someone else rather than both Bren and Jericho.  And I’ve thought of another option for who to swap in: Jango Bastion, an Eya Greycloak (of the Falmarin tribe) that serves under Bren’s uncle Joffrey.  As one of the Greycloaks he’s an extremely skilled (and powerful) archer, since the main purpose of the Greycloaks is to hunt wyverns.  He’s also a proficient dancer and uses the grace and speed he’s developed from dancing to his advantage in combat.  Also, because he’s of the Falmarin tribe, he has Force-sensory abilities.  @joelle-stone Malvat would be able to read his mind; he’s nowhere near as powerful as Jericho, and he can’t do similar feats of healing or telekinesis.

    Oh that’ll be fun!! (*assuming Alessio ever works up the nerve to actually say more than two words to Bren…*) Bren’s been a really interesting character to read about!!!
    Oooh bring him in!!!!!

    I’m gonna give y’all a short summary of my characters:

    Ahhh see all our characters need counseling lol XDD I can’t wait!!
    OH I FORGET TO DESCRIBE WHAT ALL THE CHARACTERS LOOK LIKE!!!
    Ok, so Malvat is mostly black with ivory nostrils and a kinda evilly elegant dragon-physic and his human form has long black hair and white eyes (I think…@joelle-stone?), Brendin has a kinda rugged appearance and dark hair and brown eyes that turn gold when his power is activated and Jericho dresses kinda like a female Obi-Wan and has brown hair and dark eyes, and Lupa has brown hair and dark eyes and Mayra has flaming red hair that kinda covers half her face and pretty mismatched eyes and scars on of her face and along her shoulder and a curly figure with lean muscles and Alessio has dark curly hair, brown-gold eyes and olive skin with Asian-Latin features and a scar across his forehead to his left brow.

    There was the food, back on the other side of the cages.

    The food was actually a strange conglomeration of people.

    LOL I actually snorted reading that!

    You did great Denali!!

    Oh, and now I have to remember what Malvat looks like. Whelp, in dragon form he’s HUGE (like Smaug size), with ebony scales, silver horns like a crown on his head, and silver eyes. His wings are both black, but his talons are silver. In human form, he kinda looks like Thranduil from the hobbit with his same dragon horns, big black dragon wings, black hair, and silver eyes. Does that make sense? XD

    Brendin has a kinda rugged appearance and dark hair and brown eyes that turn gold when his power is activated and Jericho dresses kinda like a female Obi-Wan and has brown hair and dark eyes,

    Where are you getting all the dark hair and dark eyes from!?  Brendin has very pale strawberry-blonde/red hair and pale grey-blue eyes that turn orange on occasion, and Jericho also has blue eyes (though her hair actually is brown).

    Except for the leather strap around his neck, that had been real.

    Ohhhhh he kept it!!!! That’s a beautiful touch. <3

    In all the tales he’d told… The children loved Alessio.

    ahhhhhh that so sweet!!!😭😭😭

    Hiii guys I’m still alive…

    Is it alright if I switch Dominic out for another character of mine who needs development? I know he’s only been in there for a grand total of five minutes, but this other character needs assistance.

    Also, quick update, but during my writing I have discovered that Evie is, in fact, not a telepath. However, she’s still remarkably good at guarding her thoughts. She actually doesn’t have powers at all anymore, as my plot decided to mention to me that Evie is actually not an elf.

    We absolutely love it when our plots do that. Yes, precious.

    Wow I apologize I’m in a weird mood right now!
