It's a dark

Chatterbox: Inkwell

It's a dark

It's a dark and stormy night. Of course it is. Dark and stormy nights are the go-to introduction for anything. Such a cliché. But there's no getting around it. This is definitly a dark and stormy night.

You wake up to the sound of tiny thuds on your window. Somehow, this is what wakes you, not the huge booms of thunder outside. The thuds are made by a hummingbird, beautiful and jewel-toned, carrying a creamy envelope nearly five time its size.

You grab the envelope. You don't really have a choice. You're just a pawn in this game. Inside is a letter, of course. Were you expecting something else?

Dear CBer, it reads.

Hello. I'm very sorry for this dramatic entrance. I had to make sure I got your attention. Your attention now belongs to me.

You are invited to the annual Chatterbox Murder Mystery Party. And yes, it is indeed annual. It happens every year, you've just never been invited. You'll probably never be invited again. So you'd better not turn this offer down.

This is NOT a ski lodge. Hmmm, you think. You rather doubt it. This is almost certainly a ski lodge. It is merely a mystery party, full of wax bodies and ketchup blood. And you are invited to solve the mystery of who killed nice, old Mr. Mister, the old man of little importence. Was it Mrs. Married Lady? Or maybe it was Harmless Little Kid. It's your job to find out!

Just fill out this form, and you are officially Detective CBer Whose Name I Don't Know. Congratulations!









Just so you know, popcorn is free, but it is probably poisoned. We are not responsible for any pain, death, stabbing, poisioning, vomiting, etc. Not that any of that will happen of course. We are accepting about 15 groups. You may bring UP TO two companions. However, please remember that 15 time 3 is 45, and that is a lot of people for me to handle, so be aware of that.

Have fun!

~The Supreme Ruler


Yes, this is a ski lodge. If you have questions, or guesses to the murderer's identity or my own identity, please feel free to post them. Um. . . that's all, I think. Goodbye, I have things to do, and you have a form to fill out!

Reserving spots for myself, my AEs and CAPTCHA. Also, Supreme Ruler (wow I don't enjoy calling you that, as it turns out XD) do I need to do sheets for AEs/CAPTCHAs? Also, @anyone, is plural CAPTCHA CAPTCHAE or CAPTCHAs? And on the sheet it says "CBer, AE, CAPTCHA, or CAPTCHAE" what's the dif between CAPTCHA and CAPTCHAE? Or referring to my earlier question, is CAPTCHAE just plural? Oh great. now I'm confusing myself... help...

Plural form of CAPTCHA is CAPTCHAs, I believe. CAPTCHAE is a cross between a CAPTCHA and an AE. I'm not totally sure what the difference is between a CAPCTHAE and a CAPTCHA... I think a CAPTCHA is one of those things where its actually what your CAPTCHA on the website says, like how CBers say 'my CAPTCHA said this!' A CAPTCHAE basically acts like an AE, but it has certain quirks that make it CAPTCHA-like, like how some CAPTCHAEs speak only in five letters. This may be wrong, but its my guess.

If you are wondering why we call our CAPTCHAEs CAPTCHAs, that.... is a very good question :p. 

(also I just found this funny. My CAPTCHA says 'zzbed'. Must be really sleepy)

Dusk S. is correct in her explanation. I would like to add, however, that you may bring 1 AE and/or 1 CAPTCHA. (A CAPTCHAE can fall under either one of these categories.) So, you may not bring all of your AEs. Sorry about any miscommunication.

Name: Luminescence


Age: 11

Appearance: Brown hair that glows red in the sun, mismatched earrings (one glowing silver owl and one glowing bronze horseshoe), brown eyes, a cobalt blue headband and wide sleeved, knee length dress, trimmed with gold. Black leggings. Black combat boots with silver laces.

Personality:  literal, serious, except when I’m not. Usually it’s 50-50. Very talkative, especially when nervous. Short temper. When I get hurt, I don't like being fussed over (unless I'm dying). Startles easily. I have a lot of opinions, and say them, though not when I think it would be rude. I love to read and write (fiction), and math is a lot less my thing. Laughs a lot. I also love horses and birds, though that's rather unrelated.

Luggage: A purple duffel bag with a silver zipper and strap containing: a good supply of books, a change of clothes, a silver tin of oolong tea, a blue teapot, a small golden box containing a white stuffed bear (not a real one) for unnamed reasons, a pencil and a purple, cloth covered notebook, and a small silver dagger, just in case.

Companions: Hmmm. Today I’ll bring Blaze (one of my hippocampus AEs)-

YES! My second ski lodge already!

And Midnight (the other hippocampus AE)-

Oh, Kiwi messed up? 

Yes. She started speaking in CAPTCHA just to confuse me. I don’t care if she speaks in CAPTCHA, but she did it just to make things hard, so she’s not coming.

Ah well. At least I won’t get murdered.

Other: n/a

Name: Midnight


Age: 11

Appearance: A hippocampus; half horse, half fish. Horse half: blue roan. Fish half: cobalt blue.

Personality: Very pessimistic. Thinks things through a little bit more than his sister, and only gets mad when he has a reason to. Can hold a big grudge. Sarcastic, but he knows when it's a bad time and acts accordingly.

Luggage: A (large) navy blue backpack containing: a good supply of books, a pencil (with levitation abilities, [needed because hippocampi lack opposable thumbs]), a commonplace book, a black pen (with levitation abilities for reasons listed above), a knitted blanket

Companions: Blaze (his twin sister) and Luminescence (his CBer)



Name: Blaze


Age: 11

Appearance: A hippocampus; half horse, half fish. Horse half: White. Fish half: Goldish sunset colored I guess?

Personality: Very optimistic. Cautious, but if something needs to get done, Blaze will do it. Curious, but sometimes too much so. A quick and fiery temper, but after it goes away, she's very apologetic.

Luggage: A (large) yellow backpack containing: a good supply of books, a pencil (with levitation abilities [needed because hippocampi lack opposable thumbs]) and a sketchbook, a black pen (with levitation abilities), a knitted blanket.

Companions: Midnight (her twin brother) and Luminescence (her CBer)

Luminescence: I'm sorry, but each CBer is only allowed to bring one AE with them. You may choose to bring either Midnight or Blaze, but not both. I'm sorry if I was not clear about that earlier.
