Chatterbox: Pudding's Place

Ski Lodge!


Summer is at its peak and the heat burns through the air, pushing its way through the walls and into your room. You lean back in your desk chair, too tired to continue doing schoolwork and too hot to do anything else. Suddenly, the fan beside you shutters and falls silent. You kick it once on the side, hoping it will spur the fan back into action. It doesn’t. You groan and throw an irritated glance at the window and the scorching sunlight pouring in from it.

And then you freeze. Because there’s a letter leaning on your window, as if it’s always been there. You stand and pick it up, turning it over. On the side of the envelope, there is one simple word: Open.

You open it. The letter itself is a light blue color and the script is flowery and indigo. You scan the paper, reading:

Hello, CBer!

If you are reading this, then you have been invited to a free stay at Mistwraith Mountain! I, Rex Arcanum, will be your host for your stay. Bring supplies* for an adventure**. All you have to do is simply fill out the form below, and transportation will arrive at exactly 4:00 pm on May 3rd. Food and other accommodations will be taken care of. I look forward to seeing all of you there!

Your host,

Rex Arcanum

*All popcorn making devices will be confiscated upon arrival

**The staff of Mistwraith Mountain will not be held accountable for any stolen and/or damaged property, minor injuries, untold danger, and almost unavoidable death

You hesitate for a second before running and fetching a pen. It’s a free vacation, and the ‘Mistwraith Mountains’ sounds like the opposite of the blistering heat here. You fill out the form hastily and put down the pencil, content to wait until the adventure begins.

And now, seemingly, it is my turn. 

Name: Adrian

CBer, AE, or CAPTCHA (up to three companions): I am an Alter Ego

Pronouns: genderqueer; they/them; but any pronouns work

Age: Sixteen 

Appearance: dark brown skin; cropped blonde hair (but it's bleached, so it is very bright) shaved on the sides; pale blue-grey eyes, that look as if they've worn with age, like an old pair of jeans; green glasses; a spattering of freckles across my nose, making it look like the skin is discoloured; short (about five-foot-nine); thin; lack of muscles; often wears baggy black trousers, some kind of plain colored t-shirt, and berkenstocks WITH socks, because I don't care what people say, it looks amazing
