*sees xyr confusion* *laughs again* Here, I'll help. I think you.... *tentatively grabs the string a few feet away* Run! *kite starts to fly a little higher* *forgets to let go of string* *runs after Sea Glass* *trips and gets tangled in string* *blushes ferociously* I mean, if you do it right. Heh. *cheeks match hair*

*runs* *loses grip on string as Celeste trips* *falls, surprised* *curls up to hide xyr own blush* *sits up suddenly* The kite! Are--are you all right? And the, er, the kite? *is blushing again*

*brushes sand out of eyes and hair* *sits up* Yeah, I'm alright. *picks up kite* I... think it's fine. So sorry about that. Heh. *blushes again as well* I think I hold it and you run, and then I REMEMBER TO LET GO and you unwind the string as you go, and it hopefully catches the wind and flies? And you keep letting out string? Sorry again. *helps Sea Glass up* laughs embarrasedly*

Sorry for the late reply, it was the lsat week or school for me, so I had a million billion projects. I also apolagize if Celeste is sounding inconsistent, I'm trying to make her more awkward, and sound more like me.

Also, random side note, if this ship works out, will you, as one of my favorite artists on the CB, draw ship art? *makes puppy dog eyes*

*accepts help* *laughs along awkwardly* It is fine. Shall we try again?

It's okay, I forgot to check anyway. 

*tries not to smile* *fails* Yes, I will make ship art. Speaking of art, did you see my picturing thread? It feels a little weird, but I'm hoping to get to know people better through it.

Yeah. I'll try not to, er, mess everything up this time. *dusts off kite* *hands string to SG* Take two! Run! *lets go of kite* *kite starts to fly* *sprints to catch up to xyr*

*sighs with relief* *shrinks at leats a foot with the sigh*

Yay! Ship art! Also, yes I did see your picturing thread, then I had a mental party (with confetti), moved my mouse to click on it at the speed of light, scrolled through, died of admiration-for-art-itis, was brought back to life, and decided not to post because I didn't want to overwhelm you and I haven't really figured out my CB appearance yet. But I have been stalking that thread.

*stammers broken denial* *goes along* *tries to find a medium between keeping the kite up and not leaving Celeste behind*

Hi, sorry, I am in Scotland and have had considerably less time and Internet than I thought I would. I will have the latter, at least, for a few days. Thanks for reminding me to visit!  

*gasps* Shrinks a foot? Like Violet! From The Girl Who Could Fly! She could shrink or grow depending on her mood and desires. Everyone always seems to name their shy girl characters Violet...

Overwhelm me? Pfhah! Truth be told, I'm dort of disappointed that more people haven't been requesting art. I love attention (far too much), and I love the work. It's stressful but satisfying, if that makes any sense.

*sees Sea Glass slow down and kite start to dip* No, keep running! *sprints some more* *attempts to continue singing Mary Poppins while panting* *fails*

Sigh... my little unathletic bean. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

Scotland? Really? So cool! Why are you there? Are you staying in a cool house? Do you speak Scottish (that's what they speak there, right?)? I'll try to keep this topped.

The Girl Who Could Fly? THE GIRL WHO COULD FLY? You like that too? I only know a few people who've heard of it! AHGYGFTDERSL! I remember Violet! I loved her so much, her small struggles and friendship to Piper were so moving!

That sort of makes sense. I really want to ask for one now, but like I said, I still haven't really figured out my CB appearance. I kind of hate that my not-very-well-thought-out name means that I have to be shy, and I have to use a peacock aesthetic. Maybe I should change my name. Am I still to new to do that? I honestly don't want to waste my possibly once-in-a-CB-lifetime opportunity for a Viola? picturing.

Laylanie says fint. Flint? What do you want with flint, Laylanie?

Why am I so dense?! Thank you for reminding me, and for your long patience.

O-okay! *keeps running* *runs a lot* *slows as kite catches the wind and stays up* *turns back to Celeste* Oh! Are you all right?

Unathletic sisters! *holds up hand for a high five*

I am no longer in Scotland, but we stayed in several hotels and a gatehouse, which was probably my favorite. I had the third-floor tower room, which meant a lot of stairs, which was tiring but fun. I miss those stairs, sort of. I could have lived there for a long time. Anyway. I was the princess in the tower, which everyone said to try and sway me, but it was really hard to choose anyway because all of the rooms were so amazing. The entire gatehouse was amazing. My room was full of bees, though. They kept crawling in through the little holes in the windows for the sashes, whatever those are--something to do with the opening and closing mechanism--and getting stuck, so every ten minutes I had to catch another bee. Which I did. With my bare hands. And no, I did not get stung, until my mom called the lady we were renting from and I got distracted while they were talking, and the very last bee I tried to catch stung me. First time in my life. We got some ice on it and it barely swelled, although it hurt for a while and I still have a dot on my palm. I'm thinking of getting a tattoo when I'm eighteen, in memory of the event. I probably won't, but it would be interesting. To have bees drawn on you in the places you've been stung...

I do not speak Scottish. I do not know if there is a Scottish language or what it may be called. Everyone there spoke English, although with an accent.

Wait, what?! You've read The Girl Who Could Fly? Oh my Claaws, I--I have no words! That's amazing! I haven't read it in a while, but yeah, Violet is amazing. What's your favorite part? I think mine is when they stop trying to escape and start taking over instead.

You're never too new to change your name. And you can request not looking shy or peacock-themed. I have an idea already, in fact. How's this?
