    @crazywriter  Happy early birthday and welcome back!🎉

    Right now Silent, Faith, Ash, Ferguson, and Farley are stranded on a island. The floodwaters where going to go down in the nigh while they slept.

    I AM afraid. I'm glad that I am. That tells me I need to be brave. ~W.M.

    Ok thanks!

     

    Ferguson’s eyes patrolled the shoreline of the mainland. The waters would had gone down substantially while they had slept, and soon the company would cross what used to be a small creek, and return to mainland, and the forest they called their home. Well, at least they used to. Ever since….well, everything happened, Ferguson didnt know where to call home. He supposed it would be where he and his friends settled down next.

    He looked up at the sky, the light waxing, growing stronger and brighter each moment. Soon he’d wake the others, but not yet. For now, he would enjoy this little piece of beauty in such a broken world.

     

     

    Also an idea i had, was that when they cross, something bad should happen, giving them another setback, i.e. injury, chase, or something. Just a thought

    Excellent post! It’s great to have Ferguson (and you!) back. 🙂

    And ooh, yeah, we should get them chased by… IDK, some kind of predator/threatening thing!! It’ll totally freak poor Ash out, haha. Maybe they can be driven to the site of the… was it a dam?

    @crazywriter,

    5’11”-6’0″?!?! LUCKY!! I’ve always wanted to be on the tall side, but I’m on the short side. 😛

    Ooh, you should join us over at Character Caste #1! We’re running out of people and it would be nice to have another one. 🙂

    Ooooooo! Great Idea guys! Maybe one of the characters can get caught by a human and taken to the place where they are starting to build the dam and the others rescue him\her ? Or does anyone else have any more ideas?

    I volunteer Silent!! I mean, she’s a dragon, so the humans would probably take one look at her and just be like, “WHAT THE SNAP IS THAT???” XD

    @crazywriter,

    *cough cough* Erm… I’m 5’3.75″ (the .75 is VERY important) and it doesn’t look like I’ll be growing any more… yeaaaaahh…

    Why, are you in the lower 5s? Its super crazy cause like only 1.5-2 years ago i was like 5’3 and then in the course of a year or so i shot up about 8-10 inches

    Ha, my dad did that!! He was the shortest in his class one minute, and over the summer he became the tallest. 😛


    @rebekah12
    and @jasmine,

    Good ideas, guys! I’m good with Silent. 🙂

    I’m good with silent too, though I’m also fine if its Farley. Either one will be interesting to write!

    @joelle-stone

    I agree! The .75 is super important! Honestly, and this may sound weird, but usually people taller than me scare me. So I’m glad I am in the company of non scary people. 😉

    how old are you? Sorry I forgot.

     

     

     

    Ill get a post out soon!
