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! Yes, yes, yes. Okay. Nymph, Sea Glass, they're all coming!


Acknowledged. I shall begin preparations.

((So, how were you planning on doing this? I was assuming RP format, and would you like to start, or should I?))

((It'll be RP format, yes, and I don't really care who starts. To save further deliberation... *flips coin* Tails. You start.))

*blinks* *sudden understanding* Ah, I see. What a coincidence!

Sea Glass

Sheep clouds today. The sea is calm, though chill. The wind is playing with my hair again. It's a bit distracting. 

Viola? suggested I start a collection of my namesake. She has one. She keeps it on her windowsill, a line of spice jars with the labels soaked off. Four white, three brown, one and a bit green, most of one aqua, and five tiny drops of blue in a jam jar smaller than an egg. She says she would have more, but she doesn't go out as often as I do. The windowsill is full anyway.

I think I will put some of my introspection into a character sheet again. I have been thinking of it for a while. 

Name: Sea Glass 

Appearance: Average height, slim. Wears beach clothes and an abundance of bracelets. 

Personality: Easygoing, save perhaps to myself, quiet, contemplative, sometimes inwardly cynical, avoids conflict at all costs, stresses about little things, lives at a slow pace.

Age: Fluctuating, currently between 12 and 13

Gender: aporagender, xe/hir pronouns

There are coyotes in Rosedale. There should not be. I scared them off as a mountain lion, but they might return.

Snowdrops are out. The weather can't decide if it's spring yet. It kind of is today. I wonder when Devin's coming. I didn't ask when that was. I feel like I'm chained to the house, able to move a little into the woods, but never far, always coming back to see if they're here.


Name: Nymph

Appearance: Shapeshifter

Personality: Snarky, slinky, really quite smart. Competitive, abraisive, sometimes rude or arrogant. Doesn't like talking to most people, drifts away when not involved. Blunt, bold, never asks for help. Closes off and lashes out when frustrated. Analytical, exploratory and aggressive when presented with a problem. 

Gender: Uses female pronouns.

Other: Queen/guardian/caretaker of several forests, might have a bit of a crush on Devin. Enjoys physical activity, winning and playing with her powers.

Oh, no you don't.

Sea Glass

I haven't gone anywhere but the beach for days.

I apparently have been gifted with the ability to heal and to see the future. All that has happened so far is a dream in which someone was in my room, looking at more stones, shells and sundry than I have. 

I've found crystals to be oddly arresting. There is a clear white quartz crystal sitting on Viola's desk that seems to have captured a moment of sea spray within it. But other gems have pure and solid color, apart from its refraction within the faces of the stones. I may pursue this further, but for now I must find a divan.

Admins, I believe I posted this before, but apparently it didn't go through.

On the Gender thread, as well as this one and at least one other, it's gone through just fine when I say that Sea Glass is aporagender. But in the post I'm replying to with this comment, it was edited out when xe said it hirself. Was this intentional? And if so, am I allowed to know why?


Chatterbox may allow but will not dwell on or discuss gender issues.

Gah, sorry I haven't posted yet. I've been super busy and just haven't found time. I'll be out of town from tomorrow until Friday, so I won't be able to post then, but hopefully I'll get time after that. I just wanted to let you know I haven't forgotten this.

Absolutely! Just put the name of your AE at the top of their segment. There are zero other conditions for entry.

Maki Tenebris 

Another day. I sigh, reaching a hand up to rub my groggy eyes. Instead, a paw comes up.

Darn it! I curse mentally. For some reason, I keep shifting in my sleep. Countless times, I’ve found myself curled up in the middle of a fuzzy pillow instead of buried below blankets. Squeezing up my eyes, concentrating, until the familiar burning starts in my stomach. I let out a slow breath, trying to wipe the pain from my face. “It doesn’t hurt” I once told Kiki. I was lying.

Now that I’m human again, I walk to the mirror and inspect myself. I take a brush and yank it through my dark waves. Dressing in a blue shirt, purple hoodie and jeans, I start to walk downstairs, then pause and walk to the garden instead. I plug in my earbuds and put on my music, humming along. Another day.
