Chatterbox: Pudding's Place


Ski Lodge!

I have some free time this summer and I’ve always wanted to do a ski lodge so here goes! 

Here’s a little explanation: This is going to be a Greenglass House ski lodge! Greenglass House is a book about this inn and it’s such an amazing book AND the inn, which is called Greenglass House, is the perfect spot for a ski lodge. If you haven’t read the book, you can still totally participate! And also, the book takes place in winter but the ski lodge is going to take place in summer because it is summer. Yeah, yeah, yeah, enough rambling and let’s get started. 


You banish your backpack under the couch and let out a sigh of relief. No more school for the next two months! Flopping onto the couch in a happy, unbelieving daze, you close your eyes, ready to start daydreaming about all of the wonderful things you are going to do this summer, when your thoughts are interupted by the sound of a window being forced open. Your eyes pop open and you sit up, staring at the window in the front of you. Everything looks exactly the same. Then your eyes fall on a cream-colored letter lying on the windowsill. You grab it and rip it open without thinking about it, desperately hoping it’s your Hogwarts letter. Inside it says, in greenish blue ink:


Dear, Cber

This isn’t your Hogwarts letter. Sorry. However, you are invited to stay at Greenglass House, an inn in Nagspeake. We will have food, entertainment, and more (there might even be a scavenger hunt of some sort!). If you would like to come, fill out the form below and send this back to the return adress. Once all the spots are full, we will pick you up with our magical transportation system. You may bring AEs and CATCHPAS, a limit of 2 companions per person, please. Here is the form, please have everyone fill it out:






Packing List:

Have you read the book? (This really has nothing to do with the ski lodge, I’m just curious.)



We will be accepting 12 Cbers. You may reserve spots. Greenglass House is not responsible for any injuries, deaths, or murders. 

Hope to see you soon,

The Pine Family (the owners of the inn)


A ski lodge? Maybe a ski lodge would be fun. You shrug but decide not the throw the letter away. After all, you do like ski lodges. 


Okay, so that’s it! Also after this, I am going to post as Milo Pine (the main character in the book). Have fun!

@Kitten: The plot is this: Milo Pine, the adopted son of the innkeeper is looking forward to relaxing with his parents during winter break, when five mysterious guests show up. Each has a different story connected to the house. Milo and Meddy, the cook's daughter have an adventure as they try to solve the mysteries of the guests and the inn.

To anyone who hasn't read it, I totally recommend it!

Name: icarus

Gender/Pronouns: she/her, female

Personality: It takes me a while to warm up to people, but once I do I pretty much never shut up. I tend to get nervous when I'm completely alone. I'm pretty dramatic, very clumsy and I get angry really quickly but it usually doesn't last long. I'm really good at remebering things I need to know, but personal things? Not so much. I'm absolutely awful at small talk and starting conversations, and just very socially awkward.

Likes: Shelling peas, reading, drawing, soup, interior design, baked goods, running, pressing flowers, DOGS

Dislikes: Isolation, cherry flavored things, onions, large spiders, darkness, people explaining things to me that I already know, the phrase "something's not right"

Packing List: Roller blades, clothes + toiletries, a typewriter (to throw at anyone who tries to murder me), my sketchbook, some nice pens and pencils, books, and some beef noodle soup (niu rou mian)

Have you read the book? (This really has nothing to do with the ski lodge, I’m just curious.) Nope! It sound cool though so I might see if the library has it.

Other: When you say a scavenger hunt... you don't mean a scavenger hunt for the murderer, do you?

Name: Applejaguar Lasbonniere (not a real last name admins, I don't even know how I came up with it)

Gender/Pronouns: um, I'm actually not sure right now, I guess I'd say I'm a demigirl? I think I'd like to try they/them pronouns for this ski lodge. 

Personality: HOOOOO BOY okay so I'm not sure about this one either, but I overthink things a lot and worry a lot. People seem to generally find me a nice person, and I do try pretty hard to be a good person. There aren't very many people I dislike. I also care a lot about politics and social issues. I definitely care what people think of me, but I still try to be weird and embrace myself. Actually sometimes I try to be weird on purpose. I like to think I'm pretty good at understanding things, but I'm not so sure lately. 

Likes:Obscure and over-the-top fashion, actually any fashion probably, subverting gender norms, the color pink, eating (especially salty stuff and fruit) (but no melons except watermelon), reading (but I haven't been reading many new books lately), weird historical facts, people who are nerds, John Mulaney's comedy, kind people, working with fabric, making collages

Dislikes: people who aren't accepting, okra, people trying to tell me that I'm not something that I say I am, dishonesty, pencil skirts (on me), discrimination

Packing List: Oooh, um, a bunch of outfits, about 4 books, a piece of driftwood, a shiny bag, some cherries, a swimsuit and goggles, a notebook and pencil, pajamas, a fancy camera which i definitely don't have in real life, a friendship bracelet to work on

Have you read the book? (This really has nothing to do with the ski lodge, I’m just curious.) Yes and I really love it. 

Other: Huzzah!
