Chatterbox: Chirp at Cricket

my new (and last) AE:

Name: Katharine

Age: 157, though I appear about 34

Gender: Female

Appearance: Her face looks stern, and she always wears a Victorian- Era dress, but not one too fancy. She has long, brown hair always pulled up in a bun, and she wears those old-fashioned glasses that clip onto your nose. You will never see her without her red leather notebook.

Personality: As much like the historical figure Katharine Lee Bates as possible. Very stern to younger AEs, but not unkind. Very, very proper in her speech and manner. Intelligent, likes to write poetry (the historical Katharine wrote America the Beautiful)

Crushes: None yet. The historical Katharine never married, so- So she's open. Not exactly how I would have put it, Anna, but yes, that is basically what I meant to state 

Speaks in: bold italics

Other: Based off of Katharine Lee Bates as much as possible.

Hello, Katharine

Greetings, Sequoia. It is a pleasure to make thine acquaintance, and the same to thee, Anna.

Hi Katharine! Nice to meet you, too.

Why ist thou not speaking proper English?

This is proper English!

And why have I not heard of this change before?


I am rendered speechless. These young AEs have no concept of properness (elementgirl: yes, properness is a word, I looked it up).

You mean no concept of what life was like in the 19th century, do you not? Yikes, I'm starting to sound like old Kathy here.

*face turns bright red* *glares at Anna* Thine may not EVER call me Kathy.

More like Timmy than I ever would have thought *slowly backs out of room* Sorry, got to go! *runs off*

*sighs and goes back to writing in notebook* 

So, that is basically my new AE. Has anyone else (besides the person who made Eliza Hamilton into an AE) based an AE off of a historical figure? It's pretty weird...

*Blushes* Hello, Alfred. *smiles, blushes again* (exasperated elementgirl: Seriously? I have Sequoia for this xD) *scribbles something in notebook* *Looks up again* Wouldst thou enjoy reading some of my poetry?

Oh my. Another older AE to boss us around.

She can't be that bad. 

*watches Kathy for a few minutes as she corrects elementgirl's other AEs*

Nope she's pretty bad. 

I'm actually beggining to agree with you.
