Time travel collaborative story
July 18, 2020 at 12:25 pm #116307
I googled what people wore in the 1800s so I could get an idea of what Cassie should wear. I was kinda hoping some girls wore overalls (I felt like that fit Cassie better) but it said they didn’t really start wearing overalls til the early 1900s. So, do y’all think a simple, long-sleeved, brown dress with tall leather boots (maybe some sort of belt, too) would be historically accurate enough?

Thank you Thwapling! I’m glad it wasn’t boring and that we have “officially” started! I think it would be fine if they met at their home, because then they would be sure to see each other.
As for the clothes, I think your description fits!

You’re welcome! 😀
Yeah, I think that meeting at the house would work pretty well.
And thank you! I’m glad that the clothes work!

Fun fact: In theory, going forward in time could be possible, though it’s not exactly ‘time travel.’ If you traveled at the speed of light, time would slow down for those around you and seem to speed up for you. So, if you spent 5 minutes traveling at the speed of light, 80 years could pass for those, well, not traveling that fast. But so far no theories have been presented for going back in time. Since we’re doing a time travel story and all, I just thought it’d be fun to share that. But I don’t remember every detail (like the numbers for how much time would pass) so I just told you the main idea that I remembered. So if you want to look it up, you could get it more straightforward and in better detail and more accurate. I just told you what I remembered. 😛

Also, Wingiby, did you base Hutch’s brothers off the ones in the book ‘Across Five Aprils’? ‘Cause in that book, weren’t the main character’s brothers in the same situation? (Where one fought for the south, and the other fought for the Union)

Oh man, that’s so cool about the travel into the future (but also sorta creepy…:P)! Maybe we could just pretend it doesn’t happen if we go forward like that in our story….
And yes!!! You read that book!?!? I really love it! I’m reading it for school, and am enjoying it; thought I might as well use my fleeting knowledge before I forget it 😛 Anyhow, I’m impressed you caught on to that!
And sorry I haven’t been posting a lot. I need to work on that…

I’m over here growling because that first face-sticking-out-a-tongue-on-my-post-above didn’t turn out!! 😛 There.

Yeah, when I first heard it I thought it was creepy and cool, too 😛 Yes, I think that’s a good idea. But speaking of which, is going forward in time a thing in our story? I’ve been wondering about that.
I READ IT FOR SCHOOL, TOO!!!!! AND I ALSO LOVED IT!!! (probably enough capitals and exclamation points 😛 ) And, it’s been awhile since I’ve read it, but did you switch the names around? (for the older brothers, I mean) And thanks!
You’re good! At first, I hardly posted on Story Embers, but I’ve been trying to do it a bit more, so yeah, I get it. But, I’ll confess, I’ve been checking it a lot and impatiently waiting your response. (I guess I’m just a wee bit excited 😛 ).
Ha, that’s so funny!! I love those faces 😛 😛 😛

Huh. I’m not sure. Maybe the super-villain could be from the future — and is looking for notorious allies because everybody in his day and age are goody goodies. 😛
And YES!!!!! That book is SO good (and you can never have to many exclamation points)! I didn’t change Eb around (he was the cousin they took in)… But one of the brothers was Tom, and I named this one Tod. Then there was Bill and John, but Hutch has only two bros.
Don’t worry, when I first got on The Wingfeather Forum, I was CONSTANTLY checking so I probably wore my phone down… So don’t worry, It’ll wear off eventually. But I don’t mind, and I totally get it. 😉 And when you said “wee bit excited” I heard it in my mind with a Scottish accent. That is how my brain works.
And I love smilies too! 😀

Ooooh, I like that idea, Wingiby! But by future, do you mean when Cassie and Percy live? Or farther ahead? If the villain lives in the same time period as Cassie and Percy, he could use their time machine. Maybe he’ll break into the their house and threatens their parents so they help him, otherwise he’ll kill them and/or Percy and Cassie. IDK if this would work or if you guys like it… just thought I’d throw it out there.
I know!! I love it!! Ahh, I remember the names now. Thank you for explaining that! Also, do you use a curriculum for school, and if so, which one? (‘Cause I thought you said you’re homeschooled, but if I’m remembering wrong, sorry!)
Yeah, that’s how I am here, and how I was on there 😛
Ha! With a Scottish accent?! That’s sooo funny! And, yes, that’s also how my brain usually functions as well 😛
I hope Peter gets back on here. I haven’t seen him in awhile 🙁

YAAAAY!! Peter has returned! I’m so glad you’re back!

So heres my first post.
Percy suited up, in the orange and black, fiberglass timesuit, that would protect him on his travels. He made his way to the time-machine, and walked in, and he saw his sister Cassie sitting in one of the seats, a shocked look on her face.
“Thought you’d be going alone?” He saidJuly 21, 2020 at 8:30 pm #116366
also Percy will be going in, dressed as a confederate soldier, as he has to complete a report on the infamous general Stonewall Jackson.July 21, 2020 at 9:38 pm #116370
Nice, Peter! That was great! Ha ha, I liked that bit where Percy surprised Cassie with him coming; that was funny. 😛 And, oooh, I like that time suit idea!! This might be far-fetched, so don’t hesitate to vote we don’t do this, but what if the time suit kinda transforms into the clothes which fit the time period? Like they push a button, and the time suit appears to be normal clothing for the time period?
Got it, I like that idea (about Percy doing a report on Stonewall Jackson and stuff)
