My house!

Chatterbox: In This Month's Issue

My house!

My house!

I flop onto my bed, black sheets, blankets, and pillows supporting me. My feet bang against the floor, and it sounds hard. I look out the wall. Not window, wall. The moon and the stars greet me, shining and blinking to the beat of their own hearts. I shudder. Such a big place, yet so empty and lonely. I head up to the forefront of my dwelling place. I can barely call it a house, it seems alive. Through its eyes I can see the CB, thousands of feet below me. Nihil pads into the room. A sudden thought passes through my mind and I smile.
"You know how this place is shaped like a dragon and can move and stuff?" Nihil blinks at me casually.
"Yeah?" She says, barely using her vocal chords.
"It's like a divine beast from Breath of the Wild. Maybe a mix between Vah Rudania and Vah Medoh. 'Cause it's a dragon?" A moment of silence passes. Nihil's brow is furrowed, but then she jerks her head up and nods.
"Ah, yes. I see what you're getting at." I nod, too.
"Heh, I never should have taught you how to speak like a CBer. People are going to have trouble deciphering which one of us is which."
"Ha, not our problem." If she'd had a cup of something, Nihil probably would've raised it and then taken a sip. Or a lick. Shlurp? Who knows.
"... This place seems kind of empty." I say.
"Oh, yeah, it's only a flying dragon made of a diamond-like substance that has an indoor pool, a training area, a magical training area, approximately fifty bedrooms and the equal amount of bathrooms, a terrarium, an aquarium, fifteen labs, ten computer labs, five gaming rooms, an animal room that is somehow different than the terrarium, seventy different biome rooms that are connected to the training rooms, a ropes course, a giant obstacle course, a forge, twenty living rooms, a theater-"
"There's a theater?" Nihil insufficiently fought the urge to roll her eyes.
"Anyway, what do you mean this place feels EMPTY??"
"I mean, like, furniture, decorations, signs that LIFE HAPPENS HERE. I haven't even explored 489 of the rooms yet! Plus, we have all this, and there's two of us to share it with. You know what? I'm going to go down there," I pointed out the wall and down to the CB, "and set up a tent with a travel gate in it." Nihil's eyes shot wide open.
"I don't think you've calculated the risks. Opening up a travel gate with free reign would mean that anybody could pass in and out-"
"YUP" And with that, I grab three travel gate medallions and run for the nearest exit, but not before I get distracted momentarily by the sound of a clash. I put my hand to the receiver in my ear. "Nihil, what was that?"
"Checking your coordinates... Oh. You're near one of the branches of the training room. The CPUs must be sparring again."
"... You know what? Nevermind about the CPUs."
"Thank you for not wasting my time with a question."
"No problem, my fine doggo."
"WHAT DID YOU JUST CALL-" I turn the receiver off and resume my journey. Finally, I burst into whistling gales. We must be going pretty fast. Good thing I've got the control unit on 'Circle'. I set one of the travel gate medallions on the crystalline skin of the dragon. It unfolds and anchors to the floor. I check my coordinates. I'm on the right shoulder, just before the base of the right fore-wing. The travel gate glows white, and I know it's stable. I teleport to the exact opposite side of the... structure. I've really got to work on what to call this place. Soon, the second travel gate is in place. With a smile and a 'See ya', I jump off of the whatever-it-is. Plummeting to the ground, I enjoy the ride down. The moon is starting to set, and the sky is getting pink to the east. After a solid ten minutes, the ground is one hundred feet below me. I engage my powers, and my eyes glow white. Contact is made, without any broken bones or loss of life. A tent is already on my plot of land, which is thirty square feet. The tent is grey, simple, and perfect. I snap my fingers and a sign appears, hanging on the front pole. It reads 'Welcome to Rogue's dwelling. Please step inside.' Soon, the travel gate is set up. To test it out, I step into its light. A hologram of the dragon pops up before me. Two brightly glowing spots shine from just before the wings. I touch the spot on the right. Instantly, I'm back at the rightmost travel gate. I turn my receiver back on.
"Nihil! The travel gates work!"

Welcome to Rogue's dwelling. Please step inside.

Top! @Spiffy I know, right? It can also shift into a phoenix, a wyvern, basically every mythical flying animal, but I prefer to keep it as a dragon 'cause I have the rooms memorized in that configuration. :P

I agree with Anonymous! This is an amazingly creative house, even if it is a little OP.

@Rogue I'm not trying to be rude or anything, just saying that a shapeshifting house with teleports is a little overpowered. Though I guess this is the Chatterbox, so you can essentially do whatever you want. *shrugs* That pretty much made no sense XD

I still don't see it. It's not actually shapeshifting, more like reconfiguring. It doesn't have a mind of its own and the teleports are travel gates, used for transporting relatively small things from point A to B, and are being used to transport CBers from the ground to my house's entrances for the reason that my house is extremely high up and no CBer, flying or ground-tied, can get up without the used of teleportation or travel gates.

OP was defined to me as 'able to pull of a huge crime without being stopped at all', which my house definitely is not. Not am I going to do anything of the sort with my house.
