              I bet! I’m glad you enjoy it!

              So, one thing we could do is what Wingiby and I talked about a while ago: there could be a bad guy from the future who’s going back into time to collect infamous bad guys and- well, I don’t remember anything more we discussed, but that the general idea…   But I have no idea what his motives would be or what he would do with the other bad guys.

              How about– wait, no.  What if–No! That’s a terrible idea!! Sorry, but my idea well’s all dried up 🙁

              Wait, oh, oh! What if they somehow get trapped back in the Civil War time period and they have to go on this epic quest to get back home!? Totally don’t hesitate to say, “That’s a terrible idea, Natalie.  Never mention that again.” and I won’t be offended 😉 I just really want to get this story rolling!! So….. what do y’all think? And to make sure everyone sees this:

                How about he somehow breaks the machine and they need help to fix it?

                How about they find out he’s their son???XD

                Just kidding. Nah, i like it Natalie. Thoughts Wing?

                  @mischievous-thwapling

                  That is not a terrible idea at all!! I was actually thinking next to the same thing, so yeah. 😀 I don’t really feel like coming up with yet another backstory or stuff, so I think that will work fine. 😉


                  @crazywriter

                  Yes! The machine should get broken. And maybe my brain is backfiring this afternoon or something, but who did you mean by his son? Sorry, I just wanted to make sure I get it 😉

                  And I had this idea: what if they try to get Silvia back to Rome, and their machine gets broken on the way there? Perhaps Cicero starts to gnaw some cords, or he and Arrow get into a fight, LOL. They could end up in another time or place, if we want to change it up. And maybe they could get into bizare situations where they have to decide if they should do something to change history or not. Just tossing stuff out there 😛

                    YESS!!! I love that idea!! If everyone else is on board with it, I vote for that one 😀

                      Well, if the bad guy is from the future, theoretically he could be one of their grandchildren or something.

                      I like the idea!

                      BTW I like the pic Natalie! Where is that?

                        Ohhh I get it! That’s a cool idea!  It kinda reminds of Star Wars, y’know where Luke finds out Darth Vader is father? 😛

                        Thanks! 😀 I actually don’t know where it is; I found it online *sheepish chuckle* I just thought it looked really pretty and cool.

                          Hi y’all. Sorry I haven’t been on here lately. So, the plot, hmmm… I like the idea about the bad guy being one of the main character’s child (or someone related to them), and them trying to get Silvia back home (I am going to say a no go on the changing history stuff; I read way too many time-travel stories with that in it, and it never ends well; either with the character in the book, or with me still reading it!). And if Arrow and Cicero get into a fight, that would be really funny 😁, although I do wonder how Silvia and Andromeda are going to get along if their pets are not very friendly with each other…

                            Crazywriter, I love the idea of them finding out the bad guy is one of their sons or something! And Thwap, it is like Star Wars in that way. Maybe when they find out, the kids and the bad guy should both scream “noooooooo!!!” or something, LOL 😛

                            And Kylie, yeah, I’ve heard a lot about changing history in stories like this. Thinking about it, it gets too complicated anyway. Maybe they could just have to get themselves out of things, all without trying to change history!

                              I’m glad someone agrees with me on the not changing history 🙂.

                                Hey! Glad your back, Kylie!

                                Yeah, the not changing history thing makes sense. I mean, when Kylie originally told us about the story, didn’t she say that Percy, Cassie, and Anie go back in time and tell their parents it because their parents are historians and stuff? So I guess it would make more sense for them to probably try to go back carefully without changing history 😀 (That probably did not makes sense at ALL.  For some reason I have a really hard time explaining to people what I’m thinking..*sigh* No matter) So yep, I think we should go with that!

                                  I agree with all the above.

                                  Although the crazy thing with time travel is that you’re going to change history anyways. Just you body being somewhere could prevent two people from bumping into each other, thus preventing them getting married, thus preventing a whole line of inventors, pioneers, and other great people from being born.

                                  Aaaaannnd i totally geeked out there. Sorry. That’s just what my brain thinks about when im bored
