Good sirs, ma'ams,

Chatterbox: Down to Earth

Good sirs, ma'ams,

Good sirs, ma'ams, and people of all gender in between! I am proud to present to you a marvel from worlds away, something that few dare see! It has been coveted by many, owned by few, and it's history contains several burned thumbs!

I GIVE YOU... THE CROISSANT!

Aaaand yep. Yep. I's already been taken. Not surprised. I should've known.

Oh, is this a catch-the-croissant thread? Like catch-the-cookie, but not?

How about we see how long it takes before someone misspells croissant? I'm guessing it will be misspelled in the next 4 posts.

So. I hold a napkin-wrapped croissant in my hand, trying to clutch it lightly enough that it doesn't burn me but tightly enough that it can't be taken. I leisurely plop down on a tree stump, holding the deliciously buttery baked good up to my mouth, only to find it snatched from my hand. I turn angrily to see-

Ella Starburst, AKA me!

"Hey, may I please have the croissant?" I politely ask.

Kitten, astounded by my politeness, politely  hands me the croissant. I run off into a distant forest, but find...

I see a girl running toward me. I jump to her, and the crossaint (and this is why I fail spelling) fly into the air. I grab it, not caring about how hot it is. But then, I trip. The crossaint goes flying. . .

-Kitten catches it! Her long brown hair swooping behind her, she runs deeper into the forest, resting behind an old, gnarly tree. Taking deep breaths to slow her heartbeat, she doesn't notice the mysterious person until they're almost behind her. Gasping, she starts running again and tries to evade their grasp. Looking desperately back behind her, her eyes are not where they should be, and her foot catches on a tree trunk. She falls forward and tumbles a few feet, giving the unseen thief the chance they need to grab the croissant. 

"No! No, I wanted that!" Kitten yells to the rapidly disappearing back of the assailant.

*Snatches croissant* PAHAHA! *Eats croissant*

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Don't worry, I've got another one! *Throws it to Nihil* Nihil! Give this to the first CBer to interact with you.

I can't fight them for it? They don't have to ambush me?

We both know ambushing you is impossible and gaining victory over you is just as.

*Sighs* Fine.

Leeli cautiously approaches Nihil. 

“Um...hi?”

 

With a roll of her eyes, Nihil hands her the croissant. Leeli breathes a sigh of relief, grateful that Nihil didn’t insist upon fighting for it. She immediately darts back into the forest, running until she reaches a sunlit clearing. She can hear the faint pounding of feet behind her—the sound of the mob that has gathered and is now pursuing her. Looking over her shoulder wide-eyed, she can already see the dust rising on the horizon.

She has all but given up hope when she notices a small moth flitting around her head. She realizes she recognizes this moth; it lands on her hand and she whispers to it. It flies away. A few moments later, a huge golden eagle swoops down from the sky, landing in front of her. She gives it the croissant.

“Give this to whoever gets the reference!” She tells it.

It scoops the croissant up in its talons, nods slightly, and launches back into the sky.

I prick my ears. A moth that summons an eagle? I know exactly where that's from.

"EAGLE! I AM GANDALF GIVE ME THE CROISSANT!" The eagle drops it into my hands. I'm so glad I know what his voice sounded like in the movie. Without a care in the world, this is a game after all, I frisbee the pastry into the air. Lux swoops in to catch it. Once secured, he pretends to kiss it, winks to nobody in particular, then throws it out over the horde of CBers writhing below. A female AE catches it, blushing, then hands it to her CBer.

"Loagan!" I shout over the crowd. "Give me the croissant!" She gives it to me and I race away from the crowd. I am in a field and look around not expecting an attack from above I look up as the pastery is snatched from my hands and glare at...

TheaterGirl! As I grab the croissant, I quickly run to the forest. But I can tell people have already been here. The rest probably know where I am. And yep, I suddenly feel someone running right by me to get the croissant. It was...
