Chatterbox: Pudding's Place

You’re sitting on

You’re sitting on your couch, bored out of your mind. Suddenly, you hear the clatter of the mail slot in your door and the light thud of letters hitting the floor. Slowly, you stand up and trudge over to the front door of your house. You vaguely survey the mail through tired eyes. Only when you bend down to pick it up do you notice anything out of the ordinary: a small package made of a material similar to shimmery silver foil that, despite its size, is quite heavy. You set down the other letters and bring the package over to a table and slice it open with a pair of scissors. Inside is a small, black device that doesn’t look unlike one of those artificial intelligence Alexas. You reach out to touch it and as soon as your fingers graze the black metal, you withdraw your hand as though electrocuted. A small, hologram of a woman has appeared on top of the device, flickering in and out of focus. The woman is short, with dark brown skin and aviator goggles perched in her shoulder-length dark hair. You strain your ears to listen.

“Congratulations, CBer,” the woman says in a cool and slightly melodic voice. “You and nine others have been invited to join the Starry Dragon on a star cruise across the solar system. I am the captain, Andromeda Callisto. If you would like to attend, reply no later than April 30th by filling out the form.”

You furrow your brow, confused. What form? But your question is soon answered as a buzzing sound comes from the device and a piece of paper materializes in front of you. You pick it up, reading the delicate silver letters: 



Companions (please fill out a form for them as well):


Age, or the Age You Appear to Be:



Packing List: 

Pick a Number: 


“Up to three of your AEs and/or CAPTCHAs are welcome to come,” Andromeda continues. “If you do decide to take part in our star cruise, we will pick you up on May 3rd.” She nods curtly, and with a “bloop” sort of noise, the hologram blinks out. 


This is my first time doing a ski lodge! I honestly hope I’ll be able to finish this, unlike all those stories I’ve written....*looks regretfully at my writing notebook* 

You’re welcome to guess me, but I don’t think you will >:) 

Oh yeah, I would have posted this sooner but I was having serious trouble coming up with a name for the space ship. “The Starry Dragon” is probably the best I’ll come up with.... But if anyone has any better ideas for the name of the ship, I’d love to hear them. :) 


@Admins, Castillo is a fake last name! :)

A couple of important announcements/refreshers!

1. I will be accepting ten CBers, no more, no less.

2. Every CBer is entitled to bring up to three AEs and/or CAPTCHAs. Please fill out a 

form for them as well. 

3. I will be accepting entries until April 20th. 

4. I’ll take some time to plan a bit, and will *hopefully* post the first segment on May 3rd (as my schedule’s full on the 1st and 2nd). 

5. Due to school starting back up and summer camp in late June and early July, there may be sometimes when I don’t post that frequently, but I will find time for this ski lodge.

6. This ski lodge will not be held responsible for any injuries suffered in the mind, body, or spirit. 

7. Trust no one....

Obviously not.

It's in space...

Hmm. Fun!

Name: NiteSkiies

I am a CBer.

Companions.... Hrmm.... there are four AEs and three Captchas... who do I take?... Who’s been the best behaved? Hrm. I will bring my AE Thorn HEY!! Sorry *shrugs* you guys are in another ski lodge- ^I’m not!^ ooooo- forgot about that. I’ll stick ya in somethin.

Gender: Female

Age, or the Age you Appear to be: Check my age. I appear to be somewhere between (it changes) thirteen all the way to 20. It just depends on my mood. Sometimes when I want to be a bit more childish I choose a lower age look.

Appearance: Swirling hair, which can be any color, usually a deep navy or very light lilac. My eyes are pupilless, and strikingly a very light green, although they can change as well, it take VERY deep emotions to change them. If a friend or one of my companions dies, then my hair and eyes will most definitely change light grey. I have elvish ears, and I always wear dangling or hoop earrings, with planet or star decorations on them. My outfit changes frequently, but usually it’s in shades of purples, navy blues or grey. 

Personality: Sarcastic, Competitive. I think about things a lot, and don’t ever overlook a small detail.

Packing List: My many dream catchers, my scetchbook, my glitter (you never know when you may need it) my stuffed red panda, baby skunk and hedgehog (to remind me of my CAPTCHAS), 15 pencils (mechanical, of course), and my phone. Oh, also a magic can of spray paint, which never runs out and can change color.

Pick a number: Infinity.

Other: I have to go, so I will fill out Thorn’s bio soon!
