Chatterbox: Down to Earth

Let's play house. 

Let's play house. 

There are AE balls and AE chat threads, but Nymph and Sea Glass never like to go out, not where there are people (as do I). So this is a thread about what they do all day, maybe a sort of diary or log of their introverted/antisocial activities.

There might be RPing. They might talk. They might ramble on for entire posts directed at no one about whatever it is they're thinking. I don't know, but feel free to join.

Try to stay away from shipping and drama; this is about your AEs as beings with complex characters doing stuff in their spare time. Or what they do in the time that isn't spare. That might include social interactions, or it might not. Post the name of the AE of focus at the beginning of each comment, and develop.

Yes, it is. And now I will be reminded of that every time I check this thread. XD

Sea Glass

I am almost afraid to check the Down to Earth, that this thread will have died. Nymph caught me in my indecision and spoke as if nothing had happened, as though we had not argued and avoided. She was the one who chose. I thanked her, but she gave me such a look, and then, without a word, she took on the skin of a mountain lion and left.

It was warmer yesterday, and I visited the beach again. The tide was high, but I stayed and watched the sun go down, and in its last golden light I took a shell from the sand. It is small and rounded, hardly bigger than a bead. I put it on my windowsill. It sits without complaint.

Perhaps I shall return again not empty-handed.

I didn't tell Nymph the truth.

Sriracha: HEY MY DUDES! I guess I don't belong on this thread, being all extroverted and stuff, but socially awkward as I am I think I'm allowed to be here.

Rosario: You're not that bad!

Sriracha: OH EXCUSE ME, but did you see me that day with Dale where I couldn't think of anything to say for about five minutes so I stood there unconvincingly pretending that I was reading an ad on the wall? DID YOU SEE THAT?

Rosario: No, but--

Sriracha: Then don't talk to me about my awkwardness or lack thereof!

Rosario: On a higher note, today is the Lunar New Year! We're celebrating with Applejaguar!

Sriracha: YESSS! Ready to eat fish, blow off firecrackers, get red envelopes, where red clothes, eat dumplings, post those red things and more even though Applejaguar is only 1/8 Chinese?

Rosario: Yes, I truly am

Sriracha: I think that was a rhetorical question. 

Sriracha and Rosario: HAPPY YEAR OF THE DOG!

*gasps* Cool! I... don't love dogs! But did you say fish? :D

Fish and firecrackers, red things and dragons! Probably! And lanterns, right? I'm not at all Chinese, but that sounds awesome. *excited*

Yes! And tassels and prosperity gods and long beards! Yeah, I learned in my Mandarin class at school that fish is a big thing to eat on Chinese New Year. So I had some fish!

Nice! I had chicken, but my cats got fish. Lucky little floofs...

Devin didn't say anything to me on Valentine's Day. Neither did Leeli. Nothing the day after, either. I'm not upset, just surprised. I thought I was going to have to drag him off to Illyria to get away from our CBers. Viola? got a bunch of carnations. Like, a lot of carnations. I don't know why.

Sea Glass is giving me weirder looks than usual. I don't think she's just curious about my forms. She denied being stuck-up, but she could've been lying. 

I'm bored. Maybe I'll tour my waterways. Amphibian or fish? Dragon is always a safe bet...

How do I say it? Nymph is so brazen, so capable and confident. How is that even possible? How do I interact with it? I end up just staring at her.

I went to the woods a couple days ago.

Nymph talks about them, and I needed a quiet place to practice my shifting. Its not like I'll ever be able to change form like her. But I can dream, I guess.

I wasn't able to do anything very big, but I grew a tail.

Unfortunately, it took me two days to figure out how to get rid of it. Far and Wren tried to be nice about it, but I could tell they thought it was funny. 

Well, they'd change their minds if they'd had to walk around like that.  

I never went on the Æ Valentine's thread, and now I feel like maybe I should have. 

I told myself that I was busy and that all that mush was ridiculous and that was why I didn't. But that wasn't why. Not really.

I guess all that excessive shipping makes me nervous, and I didn't know what I'd say if I did go on. I get nervous around girls, too. I never know what they're thinking, especially Nymph. Oh yeah, and that I HAD A STINKING TAIL, and I was worried what Nymph would think.

It's not too late, I guess. 

Maybe I'll give Nymph some flowers.

*facepalm* I just realized that I wrote 'I went to the woods today.' and then later, 'it took me two days to get rid of it'. Wow I feel dumb. •_•

Any chance you could change 'I went to the woods today.' to 'I went to the woods a couple days ago.' Admins?
