    Nay, thou art not! For I feelest as thou feel when it doth come to the compooters. 😂😂😂😂

    Okay, I’m tired. Canst thou tell? XD

    Thou art extremely similar to I whenst I feel weary, thou speekest such as I!

  • CHET GABE

    “I don’t know,” Aydin said. “I was–” He stopped, sucked in some air, then continued. “I woke up here, I don’t know what happened.”

    He turned away and gripped Brand’s hair in his fist like the animal was some sort of life-line. Brand seemed to understand, and he rubbed his nose against Aydin’s chest with a gentle snort. Chet’s own che…[Read more]

    Aww, thank you SO much, that really means a lot!! He has a lot of inner turmoil, I enjoy writing it XD

    Your welcome! 😀

    He’s one of those characters who has rather a tendency to have very raw, quotable lines. (Fun fact, his ex-girlfriend has that same tendency, though more abstract. She practically speaks in metaphors onl…

  • CHET GABE

    Chet felt dozens of eyes drilling a dozen holes into his body, and he felt like they were drawing all of his darkest secrets to themselves.

    What’re they thinkin’? Whadda they think I am? Whadda they think I’ve done? Do I look suspicious? 

    “Hello,” a voice said warily. “Where do you come from?”

    Chet started and then narrowed his eyes…[Read more]

    ALL THE PUPPY PICTURES!!! If you get it figured out 🙂

    Puppies rule!!!

    Yaknow, natural reaction.

    Exactly 😉

    Btw, I LOVE how you show Aydin’s inner turmoil!!! Your prose is so good! One of the things I struggle with is showing a character’s inner monologue, and I think you aced it!

    @denali-christianson

    The magnitude with which I felt that statement is much too great to express in simple black and white type. XD

    I am not alone! 😀

    And I’m sitting there looking at the keyboard thinking “the words go ever on and on…”

    We’re just going “there and back again.”

    And I’m looking at you like, “cracked, she is!” XD

    Oh, oops! Lol, forget I ever mentioned them! XD Thanks!

    @denali-christianson

    Yes!!! It’s sooo annoying, but it’s also really hilarious. One of my friends irl has a dog who does exactly that, but she’s also tiny so you can catch her. My dog decides it’s time to run and ain’t nobody catching that dog! YESSSSS lol I’ll have to post a picture of her sometime so Bobby can see what his Merry friend would…

    CHET GABE

    Chet leaned against Brand’s warm, round stomach and sighed. The camcal snorted, his belly jerked, and out came two big globs of snot. Chet’s lips twitched, but he didn’t quite smile.

    “You’re lyin’ on my hair!” A girl’s voice hissed through the muggy night air.

    Chet glanced over across the dead fire where Chaha and her sister were try…[Read more]

    @rose-colored-fancy

    Okay, that’s really cool! I love it!

    Thank you!

    LOL, Aydin will either be weirded out or he’ll just flat-out not acknowledge it because he thinks it isn’t real and I don’t know which will be funnier XD

    Oh oh oh!! Now I can’t wait to see his reaction!! And Chet will probably be happier with several other quiet folks around!…[Read more]

    @rose-colored-fancy

    LOL, we can make room XD Remember, this castle can expand at will XD

    Ah yes, Lord Castle . . . .

    I think Aydin would be delighted, he used to have a camel too. I think he and Chet will get along great! (Or Aydin will be scared to death, who knows XD) I can’t wait to see more of him!

    Oh, this’ll be so fun!!

    Height: 6’ 7”

    Hair color: sandy brown, cut short but slightly wavy

    Eye color: honey

    Other: His face always looks sun-burnt, because it is. He’s given up on trying to protect it because nothing works.

    See, I’m in the terrible boat of having no human siblings, but rather one really big furry sibling that sheds all over the house. She’s a huge white dog, and her specialties are barking and making messes! XD So we had her to contend with. Basically, it was just my mom, my aunt, and I frantically trying to make the house loo…

    Thank you so much!!! These characters sound absolutely epic, and I can’t wait to see what happens with them!

    Hello there!

    Is it alright if I pop a character or two into the fray? I may or may not be able to stay very long, for life keeps running on, but in that case I will pop them right back out again. Stranger things have happened here, have they not? 😛

    Oh, and Denali, is that you?!? You were on the Wingfeather Forum, right?!?! So good to see your…[Read more]

  • @rose-colored-fancy

    I can’t tell you any details about Ziyad because it’s kinda spoilers. He has kinda a tragic backstory so he has his…. issues. And because of character agency, that means he’s made a lot of really bad choices XD He’s honestly a mess, but he really tries and I love him for it. I think he has a genuinely good heart and good inte…

  • I’ve tried in vain to like classical music, but it’s hard and I get bored XD I think my favorite is definitely folk, especially Celtic and South American. It’s just too much fun! My favorites are by Ortiz. (Oh, his books are for piano too! I have the International Rhythmic Collection parts one and two.) My favorite songs are Habanera Gris and D…[Read more]
