 OH! Totally joining if that's still okay!

Name: Frederic

Form (What type of creature/person your CAPTCHA is)/appearance: My CAPTCHA, a small furry catlike animal, very fuzzy, wears a small top hat that somehow balances on its ears, usually has a tiny tap-dancing cane that can be used to whack shins.

Favorite letter (Random, I know.): f

Personality: He's nice, but can be very irritated if provoked or over-looked. He's a little obnoxious sometimes, but he has a good heart.

If you want yourself included as a CBer: Yes!

Name:  Chinchilla

Appearance:My CBer: Usually wears a soft velvety green top-hat, has delicate fox ears that are a rusty red, with a fox tail that is usually gently licking, curly shoulder-length heair that is auborn, with canines that are just slightly too sharp. Green eyes. Relatively lanky build. Has a greek-style sword strapped to my back, and I enjoy traveling my skateboard. I ejoy doing ridiculously agile backflips, cartwheels, and other agile things. Usually in a good mood that hides a rather clever mind. (But no ,seriously, usually my 'happy-go-lucky' nature is just a mask for myself when greeting new people. Not sure if I'm actually clever though =P)

Defining characteristics(Do you carry a specific weapon or item with you, or have a power?): Weeeell, I'm very agile, and can occasionally turn into a delicate fox at will, but mostly I just have meh Historically-Accurate-Greek-Sword strapped to my back. And, of course, my small victorian-style watch that spirals out into a greek bronze-age shield.

Personality: Oh, happy-go-lucky with strangers, and i usually go back onto being very polite and relatively soft-spoken with strangers, but if you're my friend I can be very confident in my views. at first, but usually clever. I care about other people's feelings a lot, and usually is soft-spoken, so can be mistaken for timid or unnassuming, sometimes easy to overlook. I really enjoy backlava. Sometimes just because I am polite I can be mistaken to people who don't know me that well as teacher's pet or something.Mmm.... Backlava. Yum. I actually really like the word backlava.

On a scale of one to ten, how likely would you be to participate in a pie war (This probably won't be relevant to the story. Probably.):  If it was to save the people I care about, then yes. But I would really not want to kill anyone. If I did, then my consience would harrass me about it for the rest of my life, so I usually try for none-fatal tactics. WAIT YOU MEAN PIE WAR-Okay definitey 10. FLING THOSE PIES BABY. And I meant a real war with that not-hurting. But a pie pan can be deadly if thrown at the right angle, so beware.......

This is really cool! I've never really thought about CAPTCHA's personal lives. "HEYY!" Sorry Frederic. *Pat pat*

Thank you for joining and being so supportive!

 

A quick note; I'm not just randomly giving people titles/royalty. I probably should've explained this first, but I'm a Kyngdomer at heart, and Viola had quite the reputation on their art thread as the 'Sticky Note Queen'. That is why I chose to give her that title.

Second is something I wanted to clear up for everyone reading, not specifically for any specific person; because Viola has this title/castle/position of power in the novel, it does not mean she rules over CBers at all. All CBers are equal and will be equal in this novel. I will not be putting any CBers above other CBers.

Yep! I was crowned on March 19, 2017. All it means is that I have a title, a palace, and control over sticky notes.

*emits a noise resembling that of a teakettle*

I love it! I'm acting so regal and awesome, all informative and dramatic. It's so perfect! I can see it, it's so me I'm just waiting to see myself stutter and laugh about it, or build up expectations of epic grace and power, then go out on a mission and fall over fangirling about a cute nothing. This is so good, I can't wait for it to be tomorrow and see what happens next!

Whoa. Just...just whoa.

 

Galaxy of wonder, I have no idea who you are, but you, my dear, are a masterful storyteller. You have woven together this...this...*laughs* Odds and ends story into something amazing that literally pushes the boundaries of genres. It's fantasy, mystery, dystopian...I can't even. Bravo, my writer, bravo.

Thank you to all who have bothered to support this story with praise and words of encouragement! Apologies to the Admins; I'm going to be writing a long section of this post in italics. I am not trying to impersonate the Admins; I am simply using italics to show Viola?'s words.

Realm just stared. He felt almost frozen in place--unable to form words, unable to form a correct response.

Viola sighed, then waved a hand. A simple platform of sticky notes appeared beneath Realm's feet. "Please. Sit." She murmured. "What I am about to tell you...will be a burden to you. My apologies, seeing as you've only just arrived." Viola murmured.

A month ago, a CBette named Vyolette came running towards the borders of 'This Month', which was the farthest reach of the 'tamed' Chatterbox that it was safe to have discussions on. Unfortunately, the complex of beautiful fantasy buildings and the preparations for war, which lay amongst scattered conversations about 'Cricket Magazine', laid abandoned.

She was frantic. She was talking about forces, each small, but so immensely and magically powerful that we stood no chance. She was talking about corruption, she was talking about hatred.

When she finally reached 'CaC', an abbreviated name for one of our cities filled with excitement, none of us believed her.

We thought she was looking on a thread that had been abandoned long ago--some roleplay that someone had tried to make that had drifted away and had been condemned to an untouched fate.

In fact...some of us had fallen into prejudice. We saw nothing of her but her greatest flaw--which is truly one of the most horrible things mankind can do. We did not want to trust her because of her failing in the magical arts--she was gifted with powerful Vitae Maledicta, or 'plant magic'. However, she was too young. She had been forced upon a gift that she didn't understand...and her powers were often out of control. In the end, she was forced to wear gloves for her protection...and we all tried to forget that which should never have been forgotten.

Now...this 'sticky note palace' is all that lies between the Chatterbox and deadly forces that we have no true comprehension of. That is why my crown is suddenly so important, though I am one CBer amongst many. This is why my palace, once empty but for its murals and drawings, is suddenly now full.

Glitches march on us.

I am one of the only few that believes Vyolette's sightings--which others dismiss as a tale from an ancient thread. That is because I have seen them. We lost Aspen on that trip...they still haven't come back. 

Now...do you believe?

A quick apology--

After I posted the most recent installment, I realized that I had forgotten to make a post that I was planning on. Which is this--the dreaded apology post.

I wanted to apologize to all of the CBers who have already made an appearance in this story who might be disappointed in their portrayal--some aspects of their personality (I noticed this mostly with Kitten) may have been forgotten/messed up.

I have a plan in mind for the story, and that requires very specific responses when it comes to dialogue to get the story rolling. Don't understand? Yeah, that was confusing. Here's a better explanation.

Say that a girl named 'Sarah' wants to get to a certain point in her story. She has already planned the dialogue and how it will bring the story from one point to the next. She wants one of the people who has signed up to her story to ask the other "Where did the pies go?", which will fit perfectly with the character that has signed up.

The other character is expected to make a stuttering response and lie horribly, in order to move the story to the expected moment of betrayal where the other character realizes who the pie thief truly was. However, she realizes that she chose a character that, in their defining characteristics, is a 'great liar and expert at speechcraft, although s/he doesn't excel at many other things'. So she has to improvise with what she has.

I get forced into these scenarios often--and it's horrible because I don't want to change one bit of your amazing character bios! Unfortunately, I have to improvise, and that may include tampering with your personality and trying to give you more motives and backstory with that moment. Unfortunately, that was the reason I messed up with Kitten and made her a bit more shy than she was supposed to be. However, I'm going to try to progress each character to as close to their real personality as I can get.

So here's an apology to the CBers whose personalities I've botched. I'm sorry!

Whoa. I'm.....I'm an important character! I'm actually a very important character!! YAY! *does little happy dance* Wow. And to think that I just ramdomly, on the spot, wrote in those "Plant Magic" powers, and now they are a nescesity to your story! But....what happened to me? I have to wear gloves, and then what? Oh, just love this story....I'm on pins and needles!
