A Midsummer Ball

Thaaaaaat's right folks, you, yes you, the AE I'm talking to right now, you are invited to the Midsummer Ball, right here in the Chatterbox! The food is free, the venue is first-class, no CBers are allowed, and best of all, you can break the fourth wall!

Dearest AE,

You are cordially invited to the Midsummer Ball! All attire is allowed, as chaos is beauty, indeed. If CAPTCHAs wish to attend, so they may! But of course AE supervision is required at all times. Return your invitation with the following information sheet filled out!

FUN! This will be great. I'm definitely coming.

Name: Abcde

Attire: I'm just going to describe my entire appearance. I have dark skin, (in a VERY becoming shade of mahogany, if I do say so myself.) I have amber eyes. They are beautiful, too. All of me is beautiful, to tell you the truth. And I have (absolutely gorgeous) red (not orange, RED) hair. It's a very deep shade of red. My very favorite color. It's truly beautiful. I will be wearing a simple, off the shoulders, white ballgown. It's really pretty, maybe I'll try to design it and post the picture. Oh, and it has some silvery stuff at the bottom. Decorations and stuff. And my hair will be held back with silver stuff. It's a Greek style, I love it. And I'll be wearing silver heels. Ooh, and some silver bracelets. And a necklace! I'll be wearing a silver necklace.

Other: If you can't tell, I'm the MOST beautiful Alter Ego in the history of ever.

Abcde. Remember how we talked about not acting like this in public?

Acting like what? This is important information.



Other (cont.): I am vegan. Actually, not really. I'm vegetarian, but I abstain from all factory farmed animal products. So do not offer me ice cream unless you want to endanger your life. And I despise nicknames. I am an Alter Ego, not an AE, thank you very much. Names have power, and when you abbreviate a name, you abbreviate its power. Also, PygmyOwl is not my chaperone. And she will not be coming to the party with me. So there.

Abcde. I think it's time to go.

But I'm not finished.

Yes. You are.

Goodbye, my loyal fans! I will see you at the party!

Loyal fans?

Well, duh! The whole world is my loyal fan! Obviously!

Okay. Whatever you say. Let's just go, now.

Okay! Farewell!

I will be there!

Name: Archer

Attire: abcde, I hope you don't mind if I also dress Greek? I thought it was an awesome idea, but if you mind, I'll change. I am tall with blond and blue eyes. I am wearing a greek toga of purest white, and a crown of holly (is that the right plant?) in my hair. So basically, I look like Apollo.

Other: I will be bringing my guitar if anyone wants to here some of my music.

No, it's absolutely fine if you dress in a Greek style. I mean, no matter what, you'll never look as gorgeous as me.



I'm sure you'll look incredible, Archer. I'm very sorry for Abcde's rudeness. And wear whatever you want! It's fine if you take a little inspiration from Abcde.

You had me at Hamilton! 

Night Vision's skill with the quill is undeniable, but what do we have in common? We're reliable with the--


I was going to say that part! 

Well, I said it first. 

If we want to be accurate to the original song, we're all supposed to say it together. 


Right. (I said it first tho)

Name: Night Vision, but I go by Night.

Attire: A sleeveless, knee length dress with blue and black stripes and a black sash around the waist. I'm also wearing my favorite dark gray hoodie and black boots.

Other: I'm open for shipping to both boys and girls.

Name: Reese

Attire: Well duh, I'm wearing my usual outfit. It's a black crop top with a teal crescent moon on it and--

Reese, we're all dressing up. 

UGH do I have to? 

At least make an effort. 

*eyeroll* Fine. I guess I'll wear high-waisted black jeans that flare out at the bottom, and a yellow tank top tucked into the jeans. I'll also wear silver hoop earrings and a couple of bracelets. Does that satisfy you? 

No, I will never be satisfied! *hysterical laughter*


Other: Open for shipping, either gender.

Name: Samantha

Attire: I will be wearing a blue ball gown with loose sleeves, white lace trim, and satin bows on the torso area (is that called the bodice? I'm not sure). It looks much like Eliza's dress that she wears in Helpless, if you have seen that. Agent Winter will post a picture.

Other: Open for shipping, but only with boys.

»I would like to come.

Name: Shaow 

 Attire: Well, I’m pale skinned with floppy dark brown hair and dark eyes. I guess I’ll wear a black dress shirt, dark jeans, and black dress shoes.« you guess? That’s not a good answer! That’s what he’ll be wearing. I’ll make sure of it. 

Other: I go by they/them, and if it’s all right with Abcde, I’m going with her. 

submitted by Shaow, age 14?, Um, here
(July 17, 2020 - 2:13 pm)

Yes! You are going with me. You don't have a choice.

Abcde. Be nice. He already said he wanted to go with you, don't be bossy.

I can boss Shaow around if I want to. Also, they can boss me around. I will listen to them.

You never listen to me!

I'm not shipped with you, thank goodness.


You are going with me, Shaow. *smiles a very, absolutely, incredibly gorgeous smile.*

(July 17, 2020 - 6:15 pm)

Look, guys, a ball! Why don't you all go?

Do we have to?

Ace, don't be a pain. Of course we're going. 

Thank goodness for that, you guys need some friends.

It's the truth. 


What? I didn't say anything!


Name: Harper

Attire: I have straight blonde hair down to my shoulderblades, light skin, and hazel eyes. I'll be wearing an off-the-shoulder light pink dress with a layered tulle skirt that reaches my knees, light pink flats, small diamond earrings, and a diamond necklace. I'll have my hair in a braid to the side.

Other: Open to shipping, I suppose.


Name: Ace

Attire: I have dirty-blond hair that's perpetually messy but looks super cool, ocean blue eyes, and tanned skin. I'll be wearing my grey tux with a yellow bowtie, and dress shoes.

Other: Open to shipping, also my personality is awesome.

And quite modest, apparently. 


Name: Caribbean, but call me Bean

Attire: I have curly mocha-brown hair that reaches the tops of my shoulders, tanned skin from lots of time in the sun, and my eyes shift colors, mostly between shades of hazel and violet. I'll be wearing a sleeveless cream-colored dress with a long skirt that reaches the ground. The bodice is covered in pastel-colored flowers. I'll be going barefoot, with a few rings and gold earrings. I'll wear my hair down, with a few matching flowers pinned in.

Other: Open to shipping with either gender.

Bean, will you come to the ball with me? 

submitted by Archer

Oh! *hesitantly takes flower* That sounds lovely, Archer.
