Wow, this is awesome! I’d like to be added in. I’m a male, just in case that was confusing. I also go by Jaden Selesky in Kyngdom so you might know me as that.

As for CAPTCHAs, I’m still not totally sure if I’ve figured that out yet. Unsuspectingstrytllr mentioned them, but.... I dunno. I guess when the time is right I’ll form a cute four lettered sidekick. by the way, it’s saying vcti. Victory?

Ream instantly crawled backward awkwardly, away from Kitten. "Wh-what did I do? Is it--I'm sorry--" Realm spluttered.

"Your eyes." Kitten murmured. "They...sorry. They almost looked...like they were glowing. Sorry..." Kitten confessed. Realm reached up towards his face, then let his hand drop. "My...my apologies." He muttered. 

The girl tangled in vines smiled at him. "So...are you a new CBer? I never saw your introduction thread." She asked, nodding towards him.

Realm shook his head. "I'm..not a CBer."

"Oh. AE then?" The girl asked. Realm sighed. "No...I..I guess I'm what you could call a Glitch."

"One moment." The girl said politely, then tilted her head back and yelled. "SOMEBODY! HE'S NOT A ZOMBIE!" She called. "You sure?" 'Somebody's voice responded from afar. "YEAH!" The girl yelled again.

Realm took the instance to observe his surroundings. The walls around him appeared to be made of paper, with words inked on them in some sort of fancy hand lettering. The paper fluttered every now and then, as if breathing, but didn't move. Someone had written lyrics to an...'Imagine Dragons' song on one of them, which Realm didn't question.

One of the pages fluttered, then was lifted by a hand as another girl emerged. "Rosebud?" She asked uncertainly. Realm got a glimpse of her messy ponytail and brunette hair, and carefully memorized every feature of her. He could've sworn she was hiding some sort of weapon in her hoodie.

The vine girl nodded. "I swear. He's not a zombie...I think." 'Rosebud' promised. Somebody grinned and glanced over to Realm. "So...what are you? Not gonna lie, the whole 'no pulse' thing is kinda cool."

Realm blinked. "They call me...a glitch?"

Somebody's brown eyes widened. "...No." She whispered, then glared. "We...we can't let anybody know. He's no Rancor, but..." Somebody trailed off.

"But he could be dangerous. The other CBers could easily seek to eradicate him. Or...he could be a spy. A spy from....them."

"I'm not a spy!" Realm blurted.

Rosebud raised an eyebrow.

"Okay, well--I don't even know who Them is! I swear!" Realm protested.

Somebody sighed. "The truth is...only one of us knows anything about Them. The rest of us...we don't even believe they exist." Somebody admitted.

Rosebud held a warning finger to her lips. "We can't talk about this. Not here." Rosebud warned. "If any other CBers know we have a Glitch in here...even a harmless one..." Rosebud trailed off and fingered one of the slim vines that wrapped around her decorationally. 

"Will it be like...the 'Rancor incident'?" Kitten asked.

Rosebud and Somebody froze and turned towards Kitten. "Don't ever mention the Chatterbox Rancor incident again." Both of them said in unison. "Besides--that was a full grown Rancor Glitch someone was sheltering. Not--" Rosebud began, then stopped and turned her gaze on Realm again.

"We have to get him out of here." Somebody murmured, adjusting her ponytail as she said so.

"Nothing on the Chatterbox is secret....word of a Glitch might have already spread." Rosebud intoned dramatically before sighing and taking a silver pen out from behind her ear. She pointed it at one of the pages, and the page moved upwards, revealing a sky black as night...with millions of little white lights shining in it.

"Stars," Realm whispered. "Stars."

Realm stared, lost in the millions of twinkling lights. They formed shapes and whorls across the sky, in twists and spirals. Sometimes, lights flashed across the sky, but were gone as soon as they came. He imagined supernovas...and planets...this world wasn't simply a complex of hallways and rooms. There was so much space...so much open air...

Somebody prodded him out of the notebook/door.  

He glanced back, only to observe that the house he had been in was some sort of structure made out of large books. He was going to observe all that was around him--the winding cobblestone path, the lush grass, the trees that towered into the sky, with their gracefully curving roots and trunks...the floating lanterns that cast a faint glow onto the surrounding area...

But Rosebud nodded darkly towards Realm. "Come on. There's only one place where we could hide a Glitch." She intoned, drawing a silver dagger that gleamed in the light of the lanterns.

"Kitten--can you do the cool apparate-y thing?" Somebody asked. Kitten shook her head, sending her wavy hair flying with the motion. Her long cat's tail swayed behind her, changing colors from a light orange to an extremely pale, faded yellow. "I...I don't think so. This isn't as easy as it seems..."

Suddenly, someone laughed in the distance. Somebody instantly grabbed Realm's wrist and pulled him behind their small group.

"Are you kidding? I'll bet that Pie War goes viral in minutes!" Someone cheered. "Eh, I didn't do the best job with the camera angles." Another muttered. Realm squinted, but he could only see silhouettes in the dark. "WOOO did you see me with those pies!?" Another yelled happily. 

"There's too many of us here..." Kitten observed under her breath.  "Ony one thing to do then." Somebody stated matter-of-factly. Rosebud held a finger to her lips, warily watching the figures in the distance. 

Somebody nodded and lowered her voice...a tiny bit. "Can I--" Somebody began.

Rosebud stole Somebody's line, simply to be dramatic. "We must seek audience with the sticky note queen."

Sorry that the story's not getting anywhere as of right now; I'm trying to add tension and be active, but...well...as you've seen...*shrugs*

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!! 

(Oh my Claaws I said that out loud)

Ahh, I'm going to be in the story! It's going to be awesome! I sound important! This is so cool! *bounces around as if on a trampoline* 

*paces regally* I'll receive them in my palace--do I have a palace? Whatever, I do now, for formal events and when I want to and when Nymph wants me out of the house. It's huge and fancy and made of giant Post-its. I'll stand here, walk in as if casually, or should I sit here, and say "I've been expecting you"? But I won't have, so no. I might not even be there in the first place... Eh, we'll see. It'll be perfect.

(Oh no what if Galowo had different plans oh no oh nooooo)

(They'll just disregard my post and go ahead with the story. They're a good writer, it'll be fine.)

(Wait, this isn't even an AE thing, I'm just talking to myself in parentheses and now I sound crazy)

(Maybe I am crazy)

(...)

(I am the Sticky Note Queen)

Mexi says opad! That could mean many things.

Are you kidding?!? It's still AMAZING! One of my priorities that have been added to my day is checking this thread before anything else on the CB!
