    EXCUUUUUUSE ME!!!!!!!!!!! I SHOULD’VE NEVER SHOWN YOU MY FACE! TRAITOR!!!!!!!!

    But listen! You’re not my closest friend, you’re part of my soul. Every one of my friends are impossible to replace, and if I lost any of you it’d be like losing a limb. I don’t ever forget friends, even when I lose them it’s a part of me that’s ripped out of place, a piece of my soul that only ever grew because someone else was there to shine light on me. If I try to categorize friendships, it’s like trying to prioritize what limb I can’t live without more. Yes, there are different levels, and different types of friendships, and some people touch parts of my soul I would never show to a single other person.

    But my friends are all such a deep part of me I couldn’t lose any of your. Ever.

    @kimlikesart

    Very nice! Congratulations on starting the newsletter! I liked your email! Your personality came through in it. (: And it’s cool to know your brother’s real name. *muah ha ha*

    Well…actually…that’s also just a penname, it’s like three of his favorite generals pulled together for one name…*Yo, bro, @rusted-knight, I don’t remember which generals and I know you’ll explain them better…*

    XDDDDDD

    Thanks!! I suffer from a deplorable excess of personality 😁 actually I don’t suffer from it, everyone else does, I quite enjoy it…usually…

    *hugs tightly*

    (I’m glad everyone was helpful!) And ooh dear, for the virus. Is your mom doing better?

    (Yes they awesome!)

    My mom’s doing better, she’s asleep right now but her spasms have all but stopped, it’s made her gimpy leg a little worse but other than that she seems to be doing a lot better ❤️

    Nothing too interesting… OH. I get to dress up and give a speech next week! It’s a re-telling of Rapunzel. That was fun to write. Would you like to see it? I could email it to you. I’m both terrified and excited. (:

    OooooooOOooooooohhhh!!!!!!!! COOL!!!!!! SHOW ME SHOW ME SHOW ME!!!!!!! *bouncing up and down* I know you’ll do awesome and if somebody so much as frown during your speech I’ll slap his face off!! 🙃

     

    HAHAHA She’s the one you should be worried about, you know!

    Hey, play nice! Kim’s not as mean as you 😜

    …somehow…I haven’t seemed to corrupt her yet…🤔 *how have I not corrupted this angel yet??? I’m gonna go to my grave trying to figure out how she’s so pure and also my friend…???*🤔

    *Tadashi’s voice* Unbelievable.

    Usually, you end up corrupting your friends, or even better, they turn out to be worse than you and make you worse! (and funnier!!) XD

    Without darkness, there is no light. If there was no nighttime, would the stars be as bright?

    @kimlikesart

    Kimmi doffs her feathered cap and twiddles it, before waving shyly. “Hello everyone.” She gives a short bow, then smiles. “It’s a pleasure to meet you!”

    Now that’s my type of introduction. You know what you’re doing.

    *bows with a flourish of his cloak

    Greetings, Kimmi, I’m delighted to meet you.

    Malvat was never pulled out, but he also has no handler: does Malvat slowly become a wraith and descend into madness or does Malvat become the Castle’s avatar…?

    Well that’s sweet

    Of course, I’m oBvIouslY sweet!
    Jk! Love you, Sonicup!!

    *Fred’s voice* It’s called recycling! LOL
    YES!!!!! I love being evil 😀

    Now that’s my type of introduction. You know what you’re doing. *bows with a flourish of his cloak Greetings, Kimmi, I’m delighted to meet you.

    Yes, I have exactly one sweepingly charming friend! <3

    @kimlikesart Oi, since this character castle be so slow, do you want Nithel and Alessio to just appear in the Character Castle 2.5 that’s just started?

    I’m good either way 🙂

    *tiptoes to Castle 2.5* *hides/doesn’t like new people* *hesitantly peaks out/looks over comments*

    Sure! *re-reads* WAIT. IS THIS YOUR FAMILY???
    IT ISSSS. Aw. Is this the baby brother I’ve heard so much about? 🥰

    😄

    I’m a bit confused by what they’re doing, though…  *sinks back into hole*
    Are they introducing their characters… by sharing snippets of their books?

    How many characters is each person… supposed to bring in? Or is there likely no limit? Or… *completely disappears*

    *echoes from the bottom* When they actually start writing the castle, do you think they’d like to use the Character Chronicle, to help keep things organized? If we drop everyone into a new room, there, with their characters and Alessio/Nithel, maybe that would work?
    (Though we would use their Castle 2.5, of course, instead of here.)

    Mayyybe? *still hides* I’ll go introduce Nithel over there.

    YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!! He’s my second youngest and he just got permission to join us on SE and I’m so excited!!!!

    He’s the grumpy adorable one, but he’s been much happier lately and I’m so so happy!!!!

    I’m a bit confused by what they’re doing, though…  *sinks back into hole* Are they introducing their characters… by sharing snippets of their books?

    Yeah, they all kinda speak their own language and don’t know it (I know I do too, i constantly accidentally make up words XDD), but you can’t misinterpret much cause we’ve all very good at rolling with any idea that bowls in 🙂. I think Hannah used her first chapter and Ragnarok just made up an introductory scene to demonstrate his characters’ personalities.

    How many characters is each person… supposed to bring in? Or is there likely no limit? Or… *completely disappears*

    I think there’s no limit rn coz Ragnarok completely broke the no more than 2 characters norm 😂

    *echoes from the bottom* When they actually start writing the castle, do you think they’d like to use the Character Chronicle, to help keep things organized? If we drop everyone into a new room, there, with their characters and Alessio/Nithel, maybe that would work? (Though we would use their Castle 2.5, of course, instead of here.)

    They’d love it, at least Hannah probably would…assuming they actually take the time to figure it out (I might have to ask them again, or just tag them here.

    YOOOOOOO SIBS YOU CAN THROW IDEAS AND CHARACTER BIOS IN HERE AND JUST WRITE THE ACTUAL SCENES IN THE CHARACTER CASTLE ON THE CHARACTER CASTLE 2.5!!!!! @ragnarok @hannahrenner

    Just sayin’)

    Love you, my Heart! <3 *squeezes, forcefully tugging you out of hiding place into a bear hug*

    @kimlikesart

    OKAY EVERYBODY! @ragnarok @hannahrenner @this-is-not-an-alien *claps hands*
    Not to toot the same old horn, but we need to lay some ground rules for the character castle to keep the craziness down, and to help everyone understand what’s happening.

    These are the original rules, slightly modified~

    Welcome to the Character Castle! This is where you can bring your characters to meet one another (role-play), and perhaps even discover new things about them and their arcs.

    A few guidelines:

    1. No character may leave the boundaries of the castle, but you can invent any room (library, indoor garden, kitchen, etc.) as it pertains to the role-play. Due to the castle’s unpredictable nature, its rooms may change appearance and shape at will, so don’t worry about making your descriptions completely accurate—just have fun writing.

    2. Feel free to chat with other participants to ask about characters and decide which way the story will go! Though do so in a separate space from where you are writing the snippets of the story.

    3. You can’t put yourself in the story. As awesome as it would be to meet your own characters, remember that the old green door separates us from the Worlds. (An exception is if you have a character based loosely off yourself in one of your stories. That’s legal. 🙂 )

    4. Any character can enter, even if they’re a villain! Simply remember that the magic of the castle makes evil (and good) powers a little unwieldy. Even if the characters do end up making a mess, the castle will clean it up. It might not be too happy about it, though.

    5. You may bring in more than one character, if you desire, but preferrably no more than three.

    6. Write only one snippet at a time, giving someone else the chance to write the next peice, unless a week+ passes.

    That’s all! Have fun, Emberlings.

     

    Do you all have any suggestions for rule changes? Do these make sense and do you agree with them?

    Just thought you’d appreciate the running gag at home is “This Castle has only one braincell and he doesn’t know what glass it!”

    It was unanimous, you’ve been voted the only braincell…

    Thanks.

    Though… you all’s characters are pretty smart, in their own ways, too…

     

    I really like your new tagline!

    Except for the that magic mirror! 😄 But he wouldn’t remember that…😢

    Yeah, glass cuts are not fun, poor baby…!!!

    Shoot, I hope somebody teaches him how to pick glass out of his feet…

     

    Though… you all’s characters are pretty smart, in their own ways, too…

    Not as a voice of reason lol, but definitely each in their own way! They all are hyper-skilled in their own thing, and could be twice as grand working together if they ever managed to…

     

    I really like your new tagline! I’ve been thinking about changing mine… *strokes chin thoughtfully*

    Thanks!! (I thought it really enhanced my pfp lol 😂😂😂)
