Ski Lodge!

Chatterbox: Pudding's Place

Ski Lodge!

Ski Lodge!

You’re sitting outside, wishing the weather would change. The sky is stuck in that strange in-between state where it’s heavy with clouds but refuses to rain, and you wish it would make up its mind already. The tree that you are sitting at the roots of is laden with leaves that sway along with the slight breeze. 

Suddenly, you hear scratching and turn to see a small, gray squirrel scampering down the bark of the tree and jumping off to land only a few feet away from you. It sits and looks at you expectantly, fluffy tail twitching, and you realize that there is a small scroll of paper rolled up and tied with a red ribbon around its neck. You hesitate for a second, but it doesn’t move, so you slowly reach out and take the paper from the squirrel. It unrolls easily in your hand, and you begin to read:

CBer or AE?: CBer

Pronouns: she/her

Basic Appearance: erm. tall, dark of hair and eye, light skin, slim, pointy-eared. i wear jeans and my gray elven cloak.

Basic Personality: well most of the time i feel my personality is frustratingly complex, and the same is probably true of most humans and human-shaped beings. but, well, i'm quiet ig? i like art & books & writing. i can be quite sarcastic/dry, & i'm often anxious, although idk how much it shows. i probably think i'm cleverer than i am, but i try not to take myself too seriously. i am a frequent experiencer of hiraeth. (well that turned out to be a whole paragraph! not exactly 'basic' - sorry haha. i'm INFJ-T, if it helps.) 

Luggage: essentials, large quantities of books (the latter is categorized as the former), notebooks, all those sharpened pencils and working pens that i never seem to have irl, my laptop & magic headphones, and one of those full-size Hershey's bars.

Greatest Strength?: probably my skill with language. i'm not exactly Shakespeare, but i'm a voracious reader/writer.

Greatest Weakness?: anxiety/perfectionism. i feel I fluctuate between underestimating and overestimating myself, and never can i truly estimate myself.*

Spirit Animal?: i have no idea. do i get to choose? --if so, a snowy owl.

*I think I'm paraphrasing something here, but i don't know what it is.

I feel kinda stupid but..I'm a new CBer and I don't know what an AE is. Could someone explain it to me? thanks.

submitted by MorticiaTheStargazer, age 13 moons, Earth of the Frogs
(November 17, 2022 - 1:16 pm)

Sure! An AE is an Alter Ego; basically, someone will have multiple AEs that all reflect a certain aspect of their personality (ex. one that is soft and kind, one that is creative and loud, etc). People create profiles and personalities and appearances for their AEs, too. AEs usually 'talk' in posts by using different fonts ^Like this^ or ~this~, and each AE of that CBer 'talks' differently to differentiate them. 

Hope this helps!
