Chatterbox: Inkwell




Okay, I know there's already a bunch in Inkwell right now, but I needed something new. The other ones are not moving or are too developed for me.

Here's my character: Nathaniel

Age: 13

Appearance: Normal looking by regualr standards, with plain brown hair and a gaunt look on his face.


Nathaniel was filled with a fiery rage. Why was it always HIM they decided was nothing special? He would show them! Nathaniel walked away from the building, not believing he had been rejected. It's not like EVERYONE can turn invisible! He filled out about fifteen applications, did one thousand pushups for them, and turn invisble. He couldn't believe they wouldn't let him into superhero school. Just because he couldn't fly.

Nathaniel didn't want to feel the rejection. He was not normal. He did not fit in with normal people. The truth that the people at Shane's Academy, also known as Superpoweed School, were telling him was that he didn't fit in with them either. He didn't fit in anywhere. He felt himslef unwittingly turn invisible and stalk down the road.


Don't feel afraid to use someone else's character or add something that doesn't really have anything to do with the plot!

i just wrote a super long entry, but then I lost it!

Curse you, iPad!


But I am not going to let this thread die, and I am sorry I have not been able to write an entry, I've just been very busy.


So, Nathaniel. You're on. 


A loud banging was heard on the door. "LET ME IN!"

"Dr. Mods?" whispered John.


Elexhiia unlocked the door, a grmance placed on her face. Dr. Mods busrt in the door. "Finnaly," she gasped.

"HEY! You're the kids who when missing yesterday!" Nathaniel exchanged a worried glance with the others. "You almost made me lose my job, you know!"

Nathaniel decided to change the subject. "What happened?" he asked.

"I'll tell you exactly what happened," said a cold, harsh voice from behind him.



What will happen next???

Red's promised long post is taking a while in coming because he wants to give a lot of my backstory and my purpose and whatnot and I'm still working on that. It will come in a day or two, though.

I know it! I just don't know who to make the voice behind Nathaniel... Theo?

My guess is that it is Giovanni. Judging from the voice, which is the voice of a typical villian. However, I don't get why Giovanni would follow the kid's back to Shane's Academy. First of all, he's injured. He crashed into the ground at a high speed. JLM (that's the girl from earlier) cured his knife wound and brought him back to life, but he still has all his other injuries. He most likely has a few broken bones and no doubt is bleeding and bruised. You don't get right back up and chase your killer right after receiving injuries that nearly kill you. Second, he knows that these kids have the power to kill him because they've done it before. He also knows that Storm is not going to bring him back to life ever again. Unless he has superpowers of his own (which I'm sure he does), I doubt he is going to go running after these dangerous kids. 

That leaves several other possible choices for the voice. It could be John who is actually a traitor. It could be Storm, although I doubt he's sticking around. And he has no business with these kids. It could be some new random guy. Or maybe Catherine brought in Voldermort or something. That would be funny. 

But yeah. That's my analyzation  of the voice. Actually, I like the idea of John actually being in league with someone else. Maybe HUNT. Maybe some other organization. Maybe he's actually taking over the world for himself!

I really have grown attached to John, but I could totally see him being the traitor. He was, is, a flimsy character, and you may remember that he was really quite annoying at first.

If we want it to be John, well, it reminds me of the book PILLAGE, where my favorite character betrays the main character in that book. It was sad. I'm still angry about it. But isn't that what authors aim at? To have their readers experience powerful emotions? I don't know, but it would make sense to be John.

It could be Tory, but Tory really hasn't been around that much. Not enough to be a traitor.

HAHAHAHA! The Voldemort idea is hysterical! It's like the Disney RP in PP with Voldemort and Luke Castelan wanting to take over Disney World! And yes, John being in legue with someone else would make a VERY interesting twist! Options, options!

I'm done procrastinating.

I seethed with rage and the instant I deposited that poor girl back at her ski lodge, I jumped right back out of that binder paper bundle. I grabbed Storm and immediatly I jumped into another book. I didn't even know where I was going. We landed in a forest and I slammed Storm into a tree. And then I burst.

"What the heck do you think you're doing?! You have never, not once, told me what you're doing! I think I have a right to know! I was under the impression you were trying to break out of superhero school! And now you've done it but yet you're still hauling me around and treating me like I'm some fancy tool you've found! I want you to tell me everything about yourself and what you're doing or else I'm going to leave you in this forest in the middle of nowhere!"

Storm remained silent for a moment. "My name hasn't always been Storm, that's something I've named myself. You've never heard my last name because I don't have one. I don't have a family anymore. Parents give you life and then you owe a debt to them. I've payed off my debt."

He seemed to grow for a second. "This world has never been kind to me. I wish to make them hurt as they have hurt me. So I am going to destroy it."

"How?" I asked. You could kill everyone and everything on Earth, but that wouldn't destroy the world. Our world is written by someone in a higher world, and the only way to truly destroy the world would be to erase any trace of it in the higher world. I'm used to jumping into "lower worlds", worlds written by people in our world and "parallel worlds" worlds written by people in the "higher world" just above us. 

"By gathering up intense amounts of power in the form of characters and using that, and you, to bring me into the higher world. Our world is fairly unstable, you would say? It only exists in a few versions." 

"Yes", I answered. I had been to other worlds that felt much more "stable" than ours. It is always slightly disconcerting for me to feel how fragile our world is. If we were really this fragile, all it would take to destroy our world would be to destroy all the copies of the world and wait for anyone who knew abou the world to die. Storm could definitly do it. 

I sunk to my knees. How long had he been planning this? How many people did he have ready to lend thier power to him? All those times I had let him into books and games, he hadn't just been socializing. He had been  gathering allies. 

I stood up and tried ot bolster my courage. "What if I don't help you?" I asked, trying to sound stronger than I felt.

"Then you and I will go for a little swim."  

My blood ran cold. Storm always advoided the water during physical classes. He would drop a ball of fire into the pool and watch it sizzle out before telling the teacher that he would suffer the same fate. He advoided rain and snarled at it. If Storm really was that vulnerable to water, he wouldn't be threatening me with it. He must have some kind of strange power that activates in water. Using fear against me. Storm was just too good at this. How many people had he practiced this on?

I weighed my options and then gave my response, "So, where do we go next?" 


Chrono Trigger music makes this whole thing a heck of a lot more epic. Hurrah for Zeal Palace! Such a creepy tune!

Okay, so, I guess we've established that it couldn't be Geovanni. So, it's either a.) a new character, or b.) a traitor. Theo, you are the maker of this fine thread, so I'll let you decide...

I'm picturing this scene with Voldemort and the Death Eaters. Voldemort says: I'll tell you exactly what happened. And then glides in. Dr. Moddington faints. Brooke yells, "I thought you were dead!" Voldemort evilly laughs. Bellatrix Lestrange comes in with about three pounds of makeup on her face. She cackles evilly. And then Nathaniel turns invisible. All the Death Eaters say "What the heck? The kid just dissappeared." Nathaniel ties up Voldy before he notices.  All the Death Eaters say, "OMGee (obviously, Death Eaters say OMGee.) it's a new dark lord that can turn invisible! We worship you and your followers!" Brooke and Elexhiiia yell, "We are not followers!" The Death Eaters start bowing and worshipping Nathaniel. Just then John and a giant robot mech come in, but Nathaniel directs the Death Eaters to blow up the mech and save the day.  And then John gives us his emotional backstory rant which nobody reads. Then John becomes a Death Eater. And meanwhile Voldemort, who was unnoticed by everyone, leaves his love interest Bellatrix Lestrange and runs off and marries Dr. Moddington. And everyone attends the wedding. And Bellatrix marries Giovanni. And everyone attends that wedding too. 

The End. Amazing. 

This isn't the official story. This was just me fooling around. It's kind of funny, though.

Nice. Except for Dr. Mods is a girl. 

I hate myself for it, but I think it should be John.
