Chatterbox: Pudding's Place

You sit in your room, staring gloomily out the window at a dead squirrel. You’d love to go on a vacation, but every Chatterbox vacation you’ve heard of seems to end in death. If only there was a vacation guaranteed to have nothing bad happen at all!

Just as you have this thought, a giant butterfly alights on your windowsill. You stare, amazed, and slowly walk over to it. It looks at you with surprisingly intelligent eyes, showing no sight of being startled. After at least a minute of staring, awestruck, you realize there is a scroll neatly attached to its back. You hastily grab and unroll the scroll, reading the following:

Dearest CBer,

You are invited on the vacation of a lifetime, to a magical mansion where nothing bad can ever happen! Yes, that means no deaths, no annoying beeping sounds, no mosquitoes, and absolutely NO dead squirrels! Simply fill out the attached form for yourself and up to two companions, pack a suitcase, and hop on your butterfly mount by August 14.

Yours truly, 

Directors 1 and 2

Please fill out this form for all CBers and companions:

@Barnswallow It is really cool being synesthesic! I have colors for pretty much everything, including taekwondo moves. I do kind of hate having taekwondo moves as colors though, because somehow my mind decided that guarding blocks and Front Stance are both dark red, but you're supposed to perform guarding blocks in L Stance. And L Stance is yellow-green. But I can work on that. I'll have to work on it on my own though-- it would be a little tricky to explain to my taekwondo instructor why I can never get the stance for guarding blocks right because they're the wrong color lol
