Hello, everyone!

Chatterbox: Pudding's Place

Hello, everyone!

Hello, everyone!

*ahem* Good.... Evening, at least for us.

We have decided to revive our dragon ski lodge. Unfortunately, we cannot locate the original thread, so we have decided to repost it. Once this pops up, we will repost all the members of the ski lodge, and all the installments of the story. 


You collapse on your bed after getting home from school, tossing your backpack in the corner of your room. Just as you're getting comfortable, someone yells for you to go and get the mail. You run outside and look in the mailbox. Surprisingly, there is only one letter, and it's addressed to you. You open the envelope and read:


You have been generously invited to the one and only Skywater fortress, former school of sky and sea dragons alike, but, since the dragons moved out, we have been using it as our home. Unfortunately, us being the only two dragons here, we have become lonely, and decided to invite ten CBers to stay with us for a while. You are one of the lucky few. 

During your stay, you will enjoy many of the different hobbies of our former students, including sports, crafting, and much more. There will also be an amount of free time every day, during which you can do virtually anything you want. We will review the rules once you are all here, and rules include punishments for breaking them, we are sorry to say. 

Did we hear you wondering how you are going to participate in dragon hobbies, when you are not a dragon yourself? We spent a lot of time contemplating that. In order to enable you to participate, we are giving you a way to become a dragon for your visit! All you have to do is fill out the form below, and a coat of dragon scales will appear in front of you. Put them on, and you will be instantly transformed into your chosen dragon form and transported to the Skywater fortress in the same moment!

You are allowed to bring two companions for free, but if you want to bring three there will be a fee of twenty dollars to pay for lodging. 

Here is the attendance form. AEs and CAPTCHAs must fill it out as well.





Requested dragon appearance (appearance must include breed name, and we request that you have gills or other implements for underwater breathing):

Describe your personality in five words:

Salutations, Vansix and Lila


Just a tiny bit confused and mostly excited, you run back to your room and find a pen. Just as you finish filling out the form, it shimmers and implodes in your hands, replaced by a glittering cape of dragon scales. You drape it over your shoulders, and just as the letter said, you transform, and the world swirls to black as you're transported to Skywater fortress.


P.S. You do not have to fill out the form again.


P.P.S. You are welcome to guess our SI, if you wish.

Hi! I think it's really cool that you're starting this up again. I found the original thread - not sure what page it's on or anything - it's probably buried - but here you go: http://www.cricketmagkids.com/chatterbox/puddingsplace/node/415874

(In case you need to find a lost thread again, I just did an internet search for site:cricketmagkids.com/chatterbox Vansix and Lila. I believe this trick always works, but it's easiest if you have a specific keyword that you know isn't very common.)
