    (Fire alarm goes off in the middle of the night)

    (Jin, Rhioe, and Kenem race in the room half asleep.)

    Jin: Is everyone okay? Kirat what are you-

    Kirat: *holding a lit piece of paper under the fire alarm* Now that everyone’s here, I’d like to ask. . . WHO FINISHED MY CHOCOLATE MILK????

    Kenem: *screams*

    Kirat: *screams louder*

    Rhioe: Should we do something?

    Jin: Hang on, I want to see who wins.

     

    Police: Where do you live?

    Clear: With my mom.

    Police: Where does your mom live?

    Clear: With me.

    Police: Where do you both live?

    Clear: Together.

    Police: Where is your house?

    Clear: Next to my neighbor’s house.

    @kari-karast

    I’m sorry to tag you in on this thread again, but I had a question about Reza. . .

    Would it work if I just made an original character to take her place since she’s no longer a part of this? Or would you prefer I not? and just let Reza go so she doesn’t have to come back?

    Just wondering because I’m going to have to write another…[Read more]

    Rhioe: Hey, Kenem, what’re you doing?

    Kenem: Eating a family size bag of chips.

    Rhioe: *eyes the very small bag of chips* Kenem, that’s definitely not family sized.

    Kenem, staring into the half empty bag: Every bag of chips is family sized if you’re an orphan.

    Rhioe: *tears up* Kenem. . .

    Rhioe: Did you have to stab him?

    Kenem: You weren’t there. You didn’t hear what he said to me.

    Rhioe: What did he say?

    Kenem: ‘What are you going to do, stab me?’

    Jin: That’s fair.

     

    Rhioe: Hey, can you ask Jin something for me?

    Kirat: I would, but he’s not talking to me because I put ketchup in his socks.

    Why am I surprised that you’re taller than me? Everyone is taller than me! XD

     

    Rhioe, addressing her friends: Tall people: If we are walking together, please take into consideration my tiny legs. I can’t keep up with you. Please think of my tiny legs. I don’t want to be jogging to keep up with your leisurely stroll you…[Read more]

    @anne_the_noob14 Haha! XD

    During an <b>argument</b>

    Kenem: Scientific fact: The world around me is made up of protons, neutrons, morons and electrons.

     

    Kirat: I used to be like “I wonder what would happen if I set that on fire.” and since then, I’ve found that more often than not the answer is “it’ll be on fire.”

    Rhioe: You’re eating ice cream again, Kenem?

    Kenem: I always eat ice cream when I’m having a bad day.

    Rhioe:. . . . You eat ice cream every day.

    Haha! XD Thanks for joining us!

    Kirat (texting his manager): Hey, are we still on for today?

    Manager: Yes. You don’t need to text me this every morning. We are still “on” for work every Monday-Friday

     

    Kirat: Kenem? You’re here too? Amazing!

    Thank you for sharing this with me.

     

  • Kirat: Yeeted.

    Kenem: Yote.

    Kirat: Yeeted.

    Kenem: Yote.

    Rhioe: Look, I just want to know who threw Jin off the bridge!

    Kirat and Kenem: *point at each other*

    Rhioe: *sighs* I guess I’ll just go ask him myself.

    Jin, stuck in a tree: IT WAS KENEM!!!!!

    Great job! I love the lighting and shadows. (Something I always have to mess around with before figuring out where they should go).

    ibisPaint X is indeed a VERY nice app. I’ve been using it for a year now, I think, and have finally gotten the hang of it. 🙂

    I love the drawing and would love to see any more if you do them.

  • Rhioe: We’re having a baby!

    Kenem: Congratulation-

    Jin: *slams adoption papers onto the table* It’s you. Sign here.

  • Hey, y’all. I’m back.

    Would your character rather live in an underground bunker or something like a helicarrier (or some other large, air transport thing)?

    Kirat: *turns pale* Live in the air?????

    Rhioe: Kirat. . . it’s a hypothetical question. . .

    Kirat: Still. . .  I. Hate. Heights.

    Rhioe: *hugs him* It’s okay.

    None of this lack of participation is anyone’s fault. Life’s been really wonky these past few weeks, and the anticipation for May is making everybody crazy.

  • Kirat: Bad news, Jin locked us out of the Mysterious tower.

    Kirat: Good news, I picked the lock and got us in.

    Kirat: Bad news, Jin was slightly concerned that I knew how to pick locks and tried to unlock my tragic backstory. I was too embarrassed to admit that I learned how to do it so I could escape my room at night.

    Kirat: Good news, a cute…[Read more]

  • Kenem: I love someone but she likes someone else.

    Rhioe: I think she’s stupid for not choosing you!

    Kenem: What did you just call yourself?

     

    Kenem: Am I in trouble then?

    Jin: Have a guess.

    Kenem: No?

    Jin: Have another guess.

     

    Jin: Rhioe? Care to explain the ruckus outside? You guys better not blow up the place.

  • Kirat: I’m . . . grounded?
    Rhioe: *folds arms* Yes, you’re grounded!

    Jin: You rashly disobeyed us.

    Kenem: *holds up a shovel* And now we’re going to bury you until you feel sorry for your actions.

    Rhioe: That’s not how grounding works.
