a story on the

verge of collapse, very like its 

wrecked castle within 

 

a circle of fans,

supporters, lend their faith

to keep it alive

Don't worry, I'm lending as much as I possibly can! I'm practicallly throwing my faith onto this thing, possibly causing some dents in the process!

But let us not lose hope! Patience reallly doesn't cost much, even in this day and age. *Lobs some more faith*

Too true, too true! DUCK!

*makes a noise that sounds like the verbalization of someone button-mashing their keyboard* *hides in hole* *after a bit I poke my head out of the hole slowly, glancing around suspiciously* Sorry *gets half out of hole* I've been a bit jumpy lately, not sure why though.

Hey all! It's been WAY too long since I read this, but I think I'm finally caught up. Just one question: there was an impersonator? When?

Oh and, can I have elven ears? (No, autocorrect, not eleven ears)

I'm not sure if I can give you the exact time, but yes, there was an impersonator. They weren't a great impersonator. They impersonated Rogue and Gracia, as well as Soren on a ski lodge (making them seem to criticize a ski lodge post). They were the first impersonator to actually talk to the people being impersonated, saying things like 'this is my idea of fun' or 'no thanks' to when we asked them to stop. They originally posted under ";)". 

They were also the first named impersonator, named first by Neko (Akira) and then Icy (Chris, later Christine which stuck). They actually did post under Christine for a while, using it to state that she was a girl. The impersonations ended with Christine apologizing. She stated two things: that she was not a recent CBer, and that she had come across impersonations on the Ultimate Guide and wanted to give it a try. 

I was involved in the impersonation drama-ish stuff, bottoming the impersonator's threads and telling people to ignore them where I could. The impersonations persisted for 2-4 days, maybe around three. 

But something good did come out of this short piece of drama, and that was definitely Neko's poetry. She wrote a poem/post/I don't know the technical term for the type of poetry about the impersonator that completely blew me away; it was just so good. I'll link it below.

(And an apology. I'm sorry for writing such a long post and not continuing the story, but a post is in progress. It's just that ranting comes easier to me than writing, so this won't take as long or as much effort as an actual story post)

I'm sorry--this is going to be very messy, but I really had to write just to get through writer's block a bit and have written something. I didn't really have too much of a clear vision for this phase, but the next post will be...fun. Hehe. Again, this is really messy, so feel free to ask me for clarification on what the heck just happened. 

Just trust me. The next post will be better.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 

Realm began, slowly, to push his way through the crowd of CBers that surrounded that old sofa. Since the 'meeting' had begun, their conversations had turned from random and CBer-ish ("A very merry unbirthda--" "Don't be a fool, we all know who shot first--" "Let's go flood the LtE with cute cat pictures!") to something darker, something he could find in the Glitch Compound, his own home.

He edged his way past a draconic CBer. "--They can kill--" He made his way past another, that one appearing to be some sort of elvish CBer. "--No choice but to abandon--" He closed his eyes for a moment, blocking out all the conversation for just a few seconds. "--How many glitches before it's too much?" 

He inhaled then continued toward the old sofa. "--Survivors of the fire--" A CBer whispered. "--Another one missing. Nighthawk--" 

Realm finally made his way to the center, where three CBers held detailed conversation on an old sofa. With popcorn. 

Storm, the Windwhisperer, was the first to notice him, tilting her head slightly to the side as she stared at him through her mask. A pause, then-- "Chill. He's here." She said, raising her voice slightly. All eyes turned to Realm in a second. For just a moment, heat pulsed under his skin, and he could just faintly hear sound coming from somewhere else. A hammer on steel. A bird singing in the branches of a tree.

Then it was over, and he was left to face the CBers once more. A girl stood from her place at the sofa, looking him over. "Realm," She began, her voice quiet. "The Chatterboxers have made our decision." She informed him. He opened his mouth, ready to say something equally calm in return. Instead, "Wha?"

She (she meaning the pale, dark-purple-haired CBer that she was) fingered her cloak. A constellation on it glowed faintly for a moment, before settling back into the simple star-filled sea that was her cloak. "You have to leave." She said simply. Realm flinched. "Wait, no. I just got--that is I just--wait. I've done literally nothing to anyone since I got here. I've been chased down, attacked with arrows, and nearly killed. Twice. Why do I have to--why do I even need to leave?" He asked, the words spilling out of his mouth quickly.

Another girl stood up from the couch. "Starseeker's right." The girl supported while brushing a few strands of her white hair out of her face. "Sure, you did nothing. But... they want you. You have to leave before what happened at the Sticky Note Palace happens again and they destroy us too." She explained, a glimmer of regret in her eyes. "We're sorry, but it's the only way to win."

"Actually. He's the only way to win." The purple-haired-one--Starseeker?--interrupted. All eyes shifted off of Realm and onto her. "They're scared of him. They said it themselves." Scared of me? I'm one of them. What are they talking abou--

"So, yeah." The other one picked up the talking again. "This would usually be the part where we would give you some epic quest or other and send you off to save the world. The truth is, we have nothing. I have no idea why they seem to want you so badly, or want to kill you or whatever. All we know is that you're the key. You can stop this." 

"Now... Since this seems cliche already, go save the world."

"...No, seriously, please go do something." She finished. Voices began to talk, all at once. "--We're sorry it came to this--" "Wait, seriously, I don't even understand what you're saying!" Realm began. "We don't understand ourselves either, half of the time. Right Ty?" "--Sorry to shove you out the door--" "--Realm, listen to me. You have to come back! Can you hear me? I'm sorry. I know you love it here, I know you wanted to be here, but you hav--" "Hey, we're still on your side and stuff!" Wait, one of those voices sounded familiar.  "--Starseeker and Stardust will be there--" "--You're still being followed... Watch out--" 

And, with the cacophony of voices behind him, he left. He left the hideout. He had been safe for a few good moments, but now... He was alone, with no purpose other than to--wait, no purpose? He had a purpose. The other Glitches... they had burned down a castle. They had caused enough chaos to this place, the place he had wanted to be almost his whole life. He couldn't just let that happen, right? Besides. Even though the CBers had made him leave their hiding place, they still were on his side. How could he fail?

Hey, I've been mentioned! And is the CBer brushing strands of white hair out of her face me? If so, yay! I'm so excited that this is back up and running again. Also, I'm not sure if this is relevant or important, but I consider myself to be friends with Viola? on the CB.

I wonder what parts of the CB Realm will go through. I can see him meeting impersonators, AEs, art threads, Admins... this is so exciting!

Yes, me too. 

YES SO MUCH YES aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhh sorry, I’m excited, aah! *bobbing up and down* But what happened to my palace? Is Nighthawk the only one missing? Are the other Glitches following Dimension? This is so cool, I love everything. 

Mexi says vypr! Vapor, maybe? Earlier she said wndf, which I think means windfall.
