Chatterbox: Chirp at Cricket

New War...
So I kinda missed out on the whole Lemming War. But... I LIKE world domination! 
So I declare I'm taking over the world. And you shall follow me like... um... 
LEMMINGS! Wait. That's taken. Um... well... you'll follow me. OR BE DESTROYED!  
Did anybody else read that in an I'm-going-to-kill-you-if-you-twitch monster 
voice? Back to business! I say Red should be on my side and we will conquer the 
world together! But... only if you want to, Red. But please? I'll give you 
un-poisoned  cupcakes! And we need the 11th Doctor on our side, because bow ties 
are cool. And, of course, Amy Pond. So! Follow me and we shall rule! And if we 
don't that means I'm really bad at writing speeches that make people help me 
conquer the world.

Okay... so much for that idea. Oh well.

It depends.  Will you let me claim solar systems for the moon of Endor?

Sure Melody! Just remember that Camp Halfblood and Hogwarts are mine.

I think the cupcakes and lemmings and stuff are copyrighted. Let's do something weird and different.

And because we need one...

I declare myself L, opponent of A.S, resident of the aether and the last MGA. To my name I have armies of poltergeists, the Turned, the three Dreamwidows (all at once? Look out world), caps, Thieves, and all manner of other aetherthings along with random mechs, Leife, and a team of Chroma Knights* (Maria Indigo Asclepian, Devon Red Butterfly, Kaz Cyan Arrow, and Nova Charteuse Cartesian).

Assisting me as my right, left, up, and down hand people are Rigan, the shifter, Scooter, the shifter's daughter who is amazing in her own right, Niko, the ship's captain, and Dallas, the astrophysicist who has issues with toasters.

My HQ resides in a zeppelin - more specifically, the Spark.

Join me all.


*Iris Halo does not belong to me. It is a universe created by SyeraMiktayee, and I should link back to but the admins might take it out. Be content with the fact that it is a copyrighted place and I have not sway over any kind of thing happening in it except over my own OCs. I'm being super careful because well you never know.

Hey. I just want to say something. 

When I first joined the Chatterbox, I was a little nervous and I didn't really know what to do. So I made a  joke. That's all it ever was. And then, somehow, without even realising it, I was in a war.

The Lemming War was unique, and that's why I think so many people liked it. It was something new, something crazy, something a little out-of-this-world. I tried something new and random and it ended up going down into Chatterbox history. And in my history, too.

So when I saw your post, I felt a little, I don't know, annoyed. That something that I had created with the help of so many other people was trying to be reproduced.

I know what it's like to miss out on an event. It isn't plesant. It makes you feel a little mad, a little hopeful, and you want to experience it too.

But it still doesn't feel right to me. The Lemming War is barely over and already here is something that may not seem like the Lemming War to you, but it feels like a copy to me.

Just like a spinoff series is never like the original, this doesn't seem to me to be original.

I know I will probably not get a response for this, and if I do, it will most likely be hate mail, but these are my thoughts and that's all there is too it. 

Admin: Red, thanks for keeping your temper under control. Think of this new war as fan fiction for the original, or like a cover version of one of your favorite songs. Would you have a problem with people writing their own stories based on Lord of the Rings? Or do you dislike it when bands play songs by other bands?

That's tottaly understanable, Red. I'm sorry about this whole war thing. It was just an idea I had. If you want me to stop and declare the war nonexistent, I certainly will. Just tell me.

Well, wasn't necessarily the first war. There was this, which, although dead, is still a thread...
Now that I think about it, it wasn't necessarily a "war". But I'm pretty sure it was the first attempt at World Domination.

GLoopity gloop gloop! I be the GREAT AND MIGHTY GLOOP, a name that wouldn't fit in the little name box! I rule over ALL the precious gloopies! (Who spots a usage of the ALL the things meme? Me. Oh yes.)
So yes. Come, gloop underlings! Come and squish and squirm your way around the Chatterbox, lifting ALL the threads! (Yes, I did it again.)
