Chatterbox: Down to Earth




Hello, my fellow AEs, and welcome! This is an AE Chat Thread, but not just any AE Chat Thread, oh no. You might even call it a SI, if you are brave enough to do so. Allow me to explain.

This thread will function as any other AE chatroom--you go to people and talk to them, just have a fun time chatting, etc. However, there is a very masked twist. Every AE is under a mask and an anonymous name (ex. mine, the very simple A Masked AE).

The point of this is not to rapidly guess as you would in a SI, it is to chat with each other and slowly discover clues about each other's identities. It is your mission to discover the identities of your fellow AEs, while not being caught yourself. Ask questions, and have fun!

The setting is a fancy hall, with a dance floor and places to party.

A young man enters, sleeves rolled up to the elbows in a hazel sweater vest, a black overcoatdraped over his shoulders. His face adorns a grey gas mask, clearly this one isn't fooling around when it comes to secrecy. Seeing that there were so few people, and realizing his error in arriving late, he slides over to the side, preparing tfor a night of conversation.

I'm glad we already have a guest! Please note that interactions between AEs are intended to be in chat format as opposed to roleplay format.

Interesting concept.

*sips cranberry cocktail* 

I'm assuming captchas are not allowed.

It's fine, anyway, I need a break from those guys every once in a while, charming as they are.

This one says eycz.

Hello, might I ask a few questions? 

If you will allow me to ask, what made you choose the disguise you now wear? 

Do you have any passions?

*The second of the duo approaches.*

Um, mind if I ask a few questions?

I know it's a stupid question, but if you could describe yourself in a single word, what would it be?

If your disguise could be anything else, what would it be?

wait how does someone's face adorn a mask

I think it means the mask adorns the face.

A pair of AEs walked in, one flitting in and out of the other's shadow.  One was clearly feminine and wore a curve-hugging white dress, her mask a large white shape covered in ornate gold runes. She wore some sort of white cloth drape to cover her hair in the back, its ends decorated with gold runes as well.

The other wore a long black cloak covering their entire form. Their mask wrapped around their entire head, also nondescript and black. 

The first, the girl,  approached an AE.

Another AE enters the room. Unlike the others, they do not glide in silently—this one prefers to barge in the doors and stomp confidently across the floor, with their hands in their pockets. Like the rest, they are disguised. A tight bodysuit envelops their body, all black save for an ostentatious neon green stripe down one (only one, not both—the nerve) leg. A black beanie covers their head and hair. The top half of their face is covered with a silvery-metallic half-mask. The bottom half of their face is black as well, but nothing covers it. The skin itself appears to be painted or perhaps dyed—it’s hard to be certain. The disguise does not hide the smirk spreading across the AEs face as they tromp into the room.

Two Æs come into the room. One wears a black cat mask, the other wears a white cat mask. The one with the white mask wears a short black dress, black tights, and black boots. The one with the white mask wears the same outfit, but in white. 

The one in black approaches Insaneo Cooltown. "Are you perhaps one of General Waffleson's Æs?" she asks.

They turn to see an AE dressed in black, with a cat mask shrouding their face. It was a rather good guess, they have to admit, but it was wrong. They grin—they wouldn’t be guessed that easily. 

“Nope,” they reply. “But could you be one of Agent Winter’s?”

A duo of Æs enter the room, the first appears rather masculine and struts confidently into the room, their chest puffed out in front of them. They are wearing a fedora, along with a black tailcoat, their obscured with a ornate golden mask. The rest of their face is shrouded in shadow. 

The second appears rather feminine. They are dressed in a long form hugging dress in black, and a silver mask, not nearly as ornate as their ocomplice, adorns their face. A long silvery veil fans out behind them, hiding their hair.  

The first saunters into very center of the room, while the second slinks of to a corner, hiding among the shadows.

One AE pushed the door open ve-e-e-ry sl-o-o-o-ly, accidentally making it creak. They opened it the rest of the way rather quickly and prayed nobody noticed the noise.

Her body was scrunched together, her shoulders tucked up in her neck, head pulled down to her chest. Her fingers were interlocked, woven together so tightly it might've taken a crowbar to pry them apart.

Her long, unnaturally colored hair fell in front of a floral-patterned mask. The AE wondered if her disguise was too obvious. Come to think of it, she wondered many things.

Neither of her siblings had wanted to come, and her CBer had been very enthusiastic about it, so she hid her hesitation and volunteered to go. Besides, she might make a friend. She took a deep breath, unscrunched her head and shoulders (but kept her fingers locked), and inched near the small crowd of other AEs.

The pale Visored AE noticed the young maiden (and the noise) and made his way over to the girl.

"Hello there, beauty," he remarked smoothly, "May I buy you a drink?"

before she could answer, he took her hand and guided her to the bar. He ordered two cocktails, and asked the woman smirking, "It's a dumb question, so excuse me, but might you be one of Aquamarine's AE's?"

Another pair of AEs enter.

The first has a more masculine build and is draped in the folds of a night-black cloak. A dark hood conceals his face, and no matter how hard one peers into the shadowy folds of said hood, they can’t seem to make out his features among the darkness. The cloak billows and dances around him as he pads into the ballroom on silent, swift feet. He walks with neither confidence or apprehension, but a calmness that rests between the two. 

The second follows behind him, flitting in and out of his shadow. This one has a distinct, curvy feminine figure and is dressed in a fitted light grey tunic and leggings. She too wears a cloak, but hers is made of a velvety material; cloudy white that blends with shades of mottled silvery as she walks. Her cloak doesn’t cover her entire figure like her companion’s does, but has a higher hem in the front, stopping a few inches below her shoulders, like a shawl—but the back hem is longer and drags on the floor behind her like a bridal train. Her cloak is also hooded, and despite its lighter color it’s shade is impenetrable to mortal eyes as well. She walks more unsteadily than her companion—there is tension and apprehension in her steps, but there is also a strong, catlike gracefulness. 

Beneath their cowls the companions smile.
