    asdfghjkl that made me think of that one audio XD that perfectly applies to Cal LOLL!!!

    (“A girl doesn’t dye her hair that color unless she has psychological problems.” “My hair color has nothing to do with my psychological problems!!!”)

    Oooh you just gave me an idea😂😂

    @inkhorn

    Enydd is being ridiculously stubborn with me, revealing she has a different side to her but refusing to show it to me. Because of her refusal to cooperate, her narrative may seem out of character at times.

    LOLL, don’t you love when they get like that XD Well, it’s usually a sign of development!

  • @calidris

    sorry, didn’t see your post until after I posted mine. I had my two in the back of the room previously, so I decided to pick up where I had left off… hope it works. I can have Abirami interact with you in my next post… after people’s reactions… I’m gonna have Abirami try to corral everyone out of the room… =)

  • Ku

    (essence is the “magical system” of my fantasy world. It’s based off of Plato’s true forms, if knows what that is. =) )

     

    Pitch blackness.

    “No.” No way could I be alone.

    I stretched out my essence, seeking for some living creature. Surely, I would find one. Even as a street urchin, I was never really alone. Every square inch of earth hous…[Read more]

  • @jared-williams Kit and Valencia are free if you’d like to start an interaction between them and Ku/Abirami!

  • Valencia:

    The last of the street lights flicker on, scattering the inky shadows on the damp sidewalk.  The sickly yellow glow flashes across Kit’s keys as they twirl around his finger, flickering in and out of his hand to the beat of some inaudible tune.  My chest tightens as the keys slip just beneath his fingertips.  Just five minutes be…[Read more]

  • WOW! Things are moving fast! I was going to write something yesterday, but then another page of writing appeared!

    So…. before the large break in the castle, I had Ku’Aya (nicknamed Ku) and Abirami. Ku calls him Ami, but Abirami hates that nickname. Ku is a 14yr. old Aelacrin girl, and Abirami is an 18 year old Aygiff boy. Aelacrin’s are green…[Read more]

  • Rosemary turned toward the sound of Miss Painted Face and Alaric’s conversation. Jade reluctantly turned with her.

    ”I’ve never seen so many strangers in my life,” said Rosemary.

    ”We’ve never seen any, you mean, until now.” Jade braced herself for another conversation with the princeling brat, now with the added benefit of — another dancer! O…[Read more]

  • @emily-waldorf

    🙂 And I also want to thank you for your review of my dystopian plot idea. It was very helpful. 🙂 (One can never use too many smiley face emojis XD)

    ENYDD

    A man (How old is Avin? I’m guessing mid- thirties to early forties) moved towards me as one would towards a frightened animal. My lips quirked upward. I must look terrified.…[Read more]

  • “Failure to accept your fatal flaws shall end in death. Touch the mirrors and begin your trials.”

     

    Uhhhhhh … what made the mirror’s special?

    How are mirrors related to fatal flaws?

    What trials?

     

    “So, who wants to go first?” comes a strange voice I hadn’t heard yet – yet being defined as ‘since I fell through the first hole in reality.’

    Pu…[Read more]

  • Avin

    He relaxed. They were all talking to someone else now. He glanced around the room. There wasn’t much to see; just a cave, with a chandelier in it. He frowned. That didn’t make sense, but nothing here did.

    He caught sight of a movement along the wall: there was a girl there, barely old enough to be called a woman. She clung to the shadows,…[Read more]

    *waves shyly* Hi everybody!

  • Nithel was just… so done. He put two fingers on his forehead and stared at the three mirrors.

    Accept your unforgiveness and vengefulness.

    Accept your anger and wrath.

    Accept your greed and selfishness.

    The first and last caused no fear in him. None at all. The second did… as he thought of times in battle where uncontrollable rage had…[Read more]

  • @emily-waldorf  😂 If Rosemary sees Alaric’s hands, she’s going to demand medical supplies.

  • Alaric

    “And just who do you think you are?” Jade said, hands on her hips. “Maybe you could learn to hold your own tongue, but I think your position is irrecoverable. Get yourself out of the glass if you can, princeling. I think you’ll find that your authority is nothing in this place.”

    She spun on her heel and stalked off, leaving Alaric standin…[Read more]

    There were voices coming from further down the room. New voices. I groaned. Wonderful. This meant that there were probably more…[Read more]

  • @emily-waldorf  Yep. Permanently damaged. 😂 You did good at writing Jade, too.

     

    Jade glared at the well-dressed brat. The price of his clothes would support an entire tenement of Culled for a month. “And just who do you think you are?” she said, hands on her hips. “Maybe you could learn to hold your own tongue, but I think your position is irr…[Read more]

    Lorcan knew from the moment he laid eyes on her brightly coloured hair and scowl that she was going to be a problem.

    Back and forth, back and forth, over the same stones he always paced over. “…in the third year of his reign, the Southern Duchies produced a total of $17,000 quids, the largest recorded gross income to date.”

    The light was getting bad. He squinted at the page. The servants would be in soon to light the chandeliers.

    “In the same year,…[Read more]

  • @rose-colored-fancy

    Oh she is RUTHLESS. I’m looking forward to this XD

    Lorcan

    Someone cleared their throat behind Lorcan. He turned to see yet another girl , her hair dyed a bright indigo glaring up at him. Lorcan knew from the moment he laid eyes on her brightly coloured hair and scowl that she was going to be a problem. “I’m Cal. I don…[Read more]
