Fun. Aight so the deals cut with people only last so long, shall we?
Uh um I know how to plant flowers. I’m confused right now but at the same time strangely honoured to be involved with whatever this is
Yay hi Sis
I’ll be on and off with classes and all but you wanna do the thing we talked about in DMs?
Soo are we gardening orrr. Also when is this happening and what even is it
*Sighs* My impatient *** isnt gonna deal well with this. Oooo can i have some mochi, or i could get my own. I’ll just get my own
Let me explain how I have no idea what’s happening right now, but I’m honored to be here!!!!!! 😁😁❤️
Well technically it’s not torture and even if it is, I got full permission from Jess and Eliot to do it so
Wait, are we getting tortured, i thought we were planting flowers *finishes patting down the soil around my rose* Heyyy you didnt get permission to torture me from me
Whatever you do, the main rule is no screaming, understood? *I light my finger glow and binds rise from the ground, grabbing Via and holding her on the ground. A seed floats over my hand in a special casing which I send towards Via, straight down her throat.* The casing will keep it from dissolving, now we just wait a tiny bit and you’ll get y…[Read more]
Ooh another guest! Would you like to join the experiment? *Binds grab Epitome by the ankles and drag [insert pronoun] to the ground, strapping [insert pronoun] arms down as well. I grab another seed and send it at them, the same casing forming as magic forces it down their throat*
Don’t worry it won’t kill you probably, it’s a simple experiment to see if plants can grow inside of humans and burst through their stomachs when the bloom. You’ll be fine.
Why me tho, I don’t wanna do this *i use my special talent to hop into cats’ body and my original body disappears. In cats body I unstrap the others and stop the experiment. I hop back to my body out of the chair* Everyone run!!
*I hop back into Cats body and make her tie herself to the chair, leaving us all time to escape. I hope into my own body and run life my life depends on it*
Ooh, hey @epitomeofperfection! Nice to see another guy on the site. Enjoy the experiment!
That was an ancient Chinese torture device. Which killed people. I’m assuming you know that.
Yes yes very fun indeedie.
*I shift my wrist so I can unknot the ties and stand, cracking my knuckles* I’ll give you a head start!
I was wondering that same question too. Are you going to take the head start or shall we come bye the experiment?
You evil little ughhh!! Wait I have one question. Where are we exactly? And another one, why us?
Well outside of course, but specifically probably in the where. As for why you, why not?
As for us, why this select group, was it chosen randomly or not soo randomly, is there something bigger we’re missing. Why do we all happen to know each other well. Is this some special thing. And also if we are in the where, the where is endless and you can do anything if you know how to control it and harness the power so technically I could j…[Read more]
Wow, I’m assuming you’ve never been to the where? *You appear a few feet away from where you disappeared* You can’t just simply leave, that would be boring. You do have a few more seconds of a head start, don’t waste them
Aww shoot *I bolt for my life* Anyone else gonna help me. And cats I noticed you ignored my comment on there being a bigger reason, am I just over evaluating things or am I right
*I take off after Elvia* conspiracy theories are better suited for outside viewers don’t you think?
I assume there’s no time-altering, teleporting, ice wheel. (Semi-Obscure reference nobody will get, but still fits perfectly in the current situation)
I’m only here bc Dov asked for help… so, um, hey @\catsforlife! How… um… how are you, uh doing? Just a normal day… uh.. killing people… or attempting to… so… um, hey…
Ooh hi! Joining the experiment too? Fun! *A seed floats with coating down your throat* Anyone else coming because this will produce a bunch of test results!
*I blind you with a flash of light*
WHY ME PLEASE NO NO NO I WOULD LIKE MY GUTS INTACT PLEASE
*I start running after Dov*
Okay um um um lemme think um um plants need water…. darn, our bodies are made of like percent water or something… uh, light…. drat, my talent is light to I probably have some of that in me… uh. Oxygen? No. What’s the other one?
Okay. How long will it take… before… um… our guts implode?
*I run around in circles*
Well based on the fact that you’re running in circles generating more oxygen and water, about like 9 minutes.
Indeedie. Get a move on if you plan on running, I’m getting bored and I wanna see the experiment
WAIT GUYS WHAT IF WE JUST THROW UP THE SEED?!?!?! THEN WE’LL BE FINE!!!
Not quite. There’s casing on it, remember. Shall make it unpossible to throw up or dissolve. And besides, I don’t need you for it, you just happened to show up and the more test results the more accurate.
*I look up hopefully*
So if you don’t need me for it, then you can remove the seed and I won’t blow up?
No, of course not. You showed up, you’re now part of the experiment. The more data the better and you won’t blow up, just have roots in your back and a flower bursting out of you!
BUT WHAT IF I DON’T WANT ROOTS IN MY BACK AND FLOWERS BURSTING OUT OF ME?!?!?!?!
*I start shouting to via*
VEE WHAT DO YOU MEAN THE ONE WORD IS STARRED AND I DON’T UNDERSTAND
I heard someone was asking for my help?
Hey sis remember the mads and kris torture thing? Because I sure do. What do you say we plantify that?
*From a couple of hundred miles away you hear a voice* adri run the **** away, and using light make it float out or something
Aww what’s the sad face for? I’m simply gardening, which Via requested!
This is slightly boring so…
*I start to pour juice on top of gummi, which turns her skin into tree branches at a slow, agonizing pace*
*I start screeching*
YOU WILL PAY FOR THIS MARK MY WORDS
VIA WILL SAVE ME
*I take out a few seeds and throw them at you so hard they embed into your flesh*
There! I’m paying! In seeds!
Can’t wait! Clocks ticking, shall you light up so we can watch it bloom?
COVE NOOOO I THOUGH PT WE BONDED OVER JELLO
Ooo yeah sorry adri * my body disappears from where is was and I jump into coves body and make her stop throwing seeds at you* Run adri, my body is safe so imma stay in possession of coves for a bit, run and don’t come back for me, no matter what
Vee I can’t just leave you here!
*I slowly begin to run but can’t go very fast thanks to my body being tree branches*
We did bond! I only attack my friends! Policy, you know.
*I grab via’s spirit and throw it out of my body, right into a platypus*
OH COVE. DEAR, DEAR, COVE. I WILL DESTROY ALL JELLO THAT IS PLACED IN FRONT OF YOU AS LONG AS I LIVE WHICH AT THE MOMENT WON’T BE VERY LONGGGGG
Hey cove, you can’t do that *I grin from the platypuses body. And continuously jump from the platypuses body to yours, every time your about to grab mine I jump* Wait adri, I want you to go as far away as possible, I have a plan!
Via just run before your time is up!!! I’m done for anyways!! DOV I COMPLETELY BLAME YOU FOR THIS
HOW DARE YOU THREATEN MY JELLO!!!!!
*I hurl a mound of soil on top of you, which only contributes to the tree growing and seeds begin to painfully sprout on your body*
TREES CANT EVEN EAT JELLO SO HAH
Also cove, if you only attack your friends I no longer want to be friends with you
Listen listen listen
Being attacked is just a way of life on the site
A rite of passage so to speak
This is your first time! Enjoy it! Improve from it! Not most people get the chance to battle me and cats. It’s very helpful practice for the trial by Yale which I hope y’all will participate in.
Still doesn’t make it ok, but fine, not gonna lie it is pretty fun. I’m weirdly honoured but at the same time a tiny bit annoyed. If you want me to participate in the trial I guess I’m up for it.
That is fair, I was very scared my first time in larkspur. At least I had Tess though!
*sigh* I miss her
*I chuck my staff at /catsforlife, which morphs into a dagger hurtling at her throat*
*I catch it just before it hits me, looking at her* Don’t waste your energy, it speeds everything up.
Okay, okay. You guys can thank @epitomeofperfection for this lovely show.
*I blind you all with a flash of light although it speeds up my demise*
*I hop to Adris body and grab her soul and with a last burst of energy hop with her and my souls back to the school for goodinto someone randoms body*
HUZZAH!!! okay, can I be in my own body now? Like, not a. In a rando’s body and b. In a flower ***?
We have to jump one last time Rienne * I grab your souls and together we jump into two politicians bodies at a debate* okay cats can’t spray law people with water, and these bodies don’t have seeds in. We can go back to our own one after the seeds have died, shouldn’t be long
Whew. Okay, Vee, let’s run away from the debate and deface our own posters! It won’t matter after we switch bodies…
Ooh fun. *I make a chair appear and sit down to watch with popcorn, water floating over my hand* Who’s ready to be watered?
*Sighs, still nibbling on mochi and sitting high-up on a treebranch*
This is chaotic
*I shout at Elliot from some random politicians body* You’re not the one with two vicious murders trying to explode their body with seeds!!!
Okay, Elliot (who is this elliot and how do you know him?) YOU TRY HAVING YOUR GUTS ALMOST EXPLODE!
*I throw a stick up and knock the mocha from your hand*
XD XD usually I’m on the side of good but today my 5050 is leaning toward never
We are not vicious murderers, I’m simply running a science experiment which you gave consent to and agreed to.
Okay I see your point, but your point of view changes when you’re being attacked. Also I never gave consent to being a live plant p.ot. And Elliot, I really don’t like you right now, this is all your fault
Nope, not at all. Normally it would be more of him not letting me do this
Well you asked for chaos Eliot, and they asked for me to plant flowers, so I did. And yes, normally the seeds would die, except that they’re still being watered, given light, and have oxygen. They’ll still bloom, it’ll just be less satisfying.
AHA! Eliot said he was feeling like a never… and this came out of no where… so really its ellllllliot’s fault! Hehe
Well you see they actually aren’t being watered or given light because the great thing about my talent is whenever I hop, my body disappears to the nothing, only to be called back when I return
Yes you see I am an Ever yet I want REVENGE on ELLIOT therefore he must DIE
Because that’d be boring! Besides, your body disappearing actually makes it better considering there’s still oxygen and water inside it and when it comes to you, there’s still light in it.
Ooooh gigi (I’m calling you that now) you should help us next tine!
All I wanted to do today was watch draco malfoy edits and cry about how ill never kiss him, I never wanted to be running form two people trying to make me a living plant po.t. Oh Jesus, why can’t I just have a normal day. I guess it just have to embrace it. And no, there is no oxygen in the nothing and water is made from oxygen so technically n…[Read more]
Hm (you can call me Adrienne by the way- -or Adri or Rienne) hm that depends on the experiment… perhaps….
To be fair you weren’t dead before. Though that does give me a new idea for an experiment
I feel like this it’s be soo fun if I wasn’t the one getting experimented on
Like I told Eliot, it’s a boring science experiment. I just want to see what it would look like
Yes. Boring. For you. Not us! For us? In one word? I would call it “death”
It probably won’t kill you. Besides, I have a deal with Kris, she’ll be here tomorrow morning. Until then however, shall we watch a flower bloom?
Okay a) I never asked for this, I just said chaos would be fun and then Cats planned an experiment, b) Cats didn’t even tell me what the experiment would be, c) I have been subjected to Cats’ various torture methods and research projects many times so I know what you guys are going through, and d) my name is spelled with one L.
Well please, for the love of Draco malfoy, try it on someone else, I do not want to grow a flower in me right now, maybe when I’m old and wrinkly my views will change but now I’m fine without any flowers in me
Oops sorry Eliot, okay you seem like the nice one in the group so would you mind helping the others to let us go free, pleaseee
Hmph. Well a) you didn’t stop to think that maybe telling a complete psychopath (no offense, cats, I still think you’re cool) you want chaos might be a biad idea? B) the experiment would be bad whatever it is c) HAVE MORE SYMPATHY D) autocorrect is being annoying therefore NOT MY FAULT. But don’t worry. If we ever meet again I hope to will be on…[Read more]
Ooh new experiment idea. I’ll get to that later. For now, I’m still proving to Jess that a flower bursting out of someone’s stomach with roots digging into their back would be satisfying.
Eewwwww no that would be disgusting
Also *cough* eliot is a very ineffective fighter so HAHAHAHA
It would not be disgusting
Haven’t you ever seen a flower bloom
It’s super satisfying and pretty
Well duh. You’re not thinking of it right. Flowers can’t just come out, in this case once it grew to a certain size it would have to burst through aka rip the from the inside out. Satisfying and pretty.
I mean I’m curious to see what it looks like but can we do it in some other unsuspecting victim. Also can I go yet
Hey you’re the one who agreed to help, I’m simply doing a science experiment.
And see? Via’s curious. Don’t you want to know what the flower would look like? Plus, it would be a ton of fun to watch
I never agreed to help I just said I knew how to plant flowers, then I sat down. Do you by any chance want to become a live plant po.t?
Well technically you sitting does help. I am very curious to see how it bursts and blooms, considering it would be super satisfying.
Yes it’d be fun to watch, not be tho. Wait does this mean I don’t have to be experimented on and I can watch with you
Depends. You can watch if you can get Ri back in their body to bloom.
(My apologies for all of this, I had no idea what Cats was planning and I simply felt like partaking in chaos somewhere since the flipped dimension in @/mermaidlover818’s activity has caused me to switch from a very Everish Everboy to a very Neverish Neverboy)
Thank you, you seem pretty nice, but you are still partly to blame for this and I am still kinda annoyed. But oh well imma move on and say this was just a fun light activity
Oh well eXcUsE mE tHoA I’m usually on the other end of the attack, today was a very different setting and frame of mind for me.
Ellllliot you’re ineffective wherever you are in the attack. You’re almost as bad as JESS :p
🙁 I’m not a great fighter either… via knows… my talent is useless sometimes..
Let me tell you a secret adri…
You don’t have to have just one talent
I have three!! I use them fairly tho so it isn’t OP. The third is in honor of Tess. Anyway, if you don’t like your talent just pick another!
I mean the talent is nice but sometimes it is badddd like you can’t do anything but I’m keeping it
I mean sometimes I find my talent annoying, sometimes I like it. I don’t know if I’m a good fighter or if I just chose a good talent
(Also my actual name is Thea so that’s why elllllliot calls me thoa)
Nope, I don’t. I feel like I’m just a side character in this exchange but eh, I don’t mind, I’m used to it
(He means in response to what I said)
Yes elllliot maybe if you were to attack me it would change my mind but you’re too much of a wimp 😉
I can create various forms of defense (so shields, forcefields, minor healing, and as I quite recently discovered, vibration emission/redirection by repeatedly producing forcefield waves)
Weeeell that doesn’t make you useless at fighing. I makes you good at defense. But then again, I don’t “JuSt KnOw” so I could be wrong…
Thats such a cool talent, wait does that mean you could’ve protected us this whole time
I could have protected you guys, yes, but I had a deal with Cats that I can’t for 24 hours. I have 2 hours left.
Aww shoot, well I really need these two hours to go quickly. Hey adri, can you by any chance make it that you now have a talent where you can manipulate time. Or I could do that
:/ having one talent is easier for me to remember… you can have it 😉
Ooo I have a plan * I jump into cats body quickly and make her say three words- deal is broken. before jumping back into the previous body* does that help?
Well, Eliot, you could have protected us before if you had told us your talent and the deal before so that Vee could have done that before but-
I’m not a plant, so I’ll settle for what I have.
2 irl hours. But anyway come on Sis, it’s not gross, it’s like one of those satisfying flower bloom videos
I agree. A bit of a difference. A bit more… shall we say… morbid.
Now this has been uh interesting, but seeing as it’s midnight where I am I should probably sleep now so bye all
And I have to eat dinner soon. This has been fun, and I hope to see y’all in the future. *insert waving hand emoji here*
Byeee, cove I would agree with you but I’m not sure if this is necessarily my idea of fun
Oh wow I just realized that most of the talking would collect more and more oxygen, aka the flowers should bloom ASAP
That was a lot of notifs in a very short time. Anyhoo, I feel slightly idiotic for forgetting my talent, which happens to be…plant control. So.
*I snap, killing all the plants inside of us
Aww cute. *I twist my wrist, letting the water inside of Epitome circle where the seed was, water the newer seeds* Flowers leave spores which become seeds and seeing as those aren’t plants yet…
Well actually to that I have multiple solutions, it’s just a matter of which to use.
Of course you do. I assume this will be less fun than fun. For me, at least
4 solutions to be exact, though I’m not sure you’d be a fan of most of them. All sound quite fun to me
Ooh I know which solution to use. Do me a favor and keep killing the flowers though, it helps
oh gosh cats I’ll stop you *smashes fifth pie in your face* 🥧 🥧 🥧 🥧 🥧
What if we just paused the experiment momentarily and had a little tea party to get to know each other for a bit so that there are no (or less) hard feelings when chaos breaks loose?
Only on this site can a torture experiment turn into a tea party in a matter of hours. I love this place
Yasss. I’m not going to end up sleeping until my phone dies
Cats is torturing us. the least she can do is invite us to the tea party
I am not torturing you, I am simply running a scientific experiment to test a hypothesis in which Via gave consent and Jess, Eliot, and the rest of the Marvel squad gave permission.
1. Not exactly consent because I didn’t know I was gonna become a living plant p.ot and 2. Marvel! I love Marvel!
I didn’t give consent! Also, experiments can still be torture *cough* Josef mengele *cough*
Is that a ‘good point Dov, I should try to stop cats’ hmm, or a ‘nope, I wanna see human flower p.ots’ hmmm?
@/epitomeofperfection one is there a nickname I can call you and two, always be scared
One: you can call me dov
Two: sounds like a pretty good rule of thumb
Well technically Via gave consent by saying go ahead along with can we start soon and etc.
I just checked and I never said go ahead, or have proper consent
And I quote:
ELVIAOFCAMELOT REPLIED 1 DAY, 21 HOURS AGO
Ohhh k, soo when we gardening because this girl is impatient
Nope, you showed up and commented therefore coming of your own wishes.
The place if you look somewhat towards merryweather next to the what.
*sprays myself with weed killer before walking up and casually mentioning how glad I am I missed this*
SAME XD it was puurrreee luck that I came this late *we hug each other, glad we are alive*
*i return the hug and we walk away and go get bagels, glad we don’t have to rip a begonia out of our throats to eat it*
You two are so lucky, it was terrifying but at the same time I guess kinda fun
Hahaha I bet Elvia!!!! I’ll def look forward to doing it next time
I was at the lake while u guys were doing it tho, oopsieeee
Agreed, Vee…. and I am pleased to say that since this I have not been the victim of any more experiments!
Ha, guess I was born under a lucky star! *I add butter and cheese to my bagel*
I was almost sacrificed to a black hole immediately after this.
But at least I am not a human experiment *shivers at the thought of being a plant and eats fairy bread*
*i cough* Y’all better get out of here now if you want to stay alive. Cats won’t let you off this easy
Thank you for the warning! *I throw a bush at everyone who wants to leave and we all disappear in a blinding flash of violet light*
50% bad, 50% good
In fact I usually am on the ever side but I ws bored so
*spits out orange juice* YOU POTENTIALLY KILLED MY TWO OF MY OTHER FRIENDS. And yes, I know I am not focusing on the positive-e.g. the little mercy we were shown-because my FRIENDS could DIE
pffft it’s an rp fight everyone dies that’s the point, that’s what makes it so fun!! There used to be so many rp fights back in the day but not anymore :(((
Come to @silver13 activity. It’s not exactly linear, but it’s still fun.
Zey are my friends. I do not wish for them to die. Noooo there is no violence. I simply disagree with you. And then you tried to STALK ME. I WOULD LIKE A RESTRAINING ORDER.
It’s not called stalking, it’s called spoeing. CHAOTIC SPOE SISTER AND NEVER VERSION OF LIL BRO GET OVER HERE AND HAVE DONE FUN WITH THESE PEEPS
‘Never version of Lil bro.’ *shrugs* I’ve had worse nicknames.
I give very weird nicknames. Anyway, TheeThee Aka Sis you wanna mess with Toile to make him Never Eliot so he causes chaos per a deal I have with him
I object to this correction. It was stalking. It had nothing to do with someone’s activity. I was threatened.
I mean Eliot knows my full name, same with Thea, and a whole lot more and they aren’t stalkers. Anywayyyyyy
C H A O S
Dov did. I was talking to Dov. He definitely stalked me. *gets restraining order*
I play safety for our school football team, but I’m not sure if that’s what you mean
Ooh fellow football player. That’s not what I meant but that’s cool
The way I imagined you doesn’t fit in a helmet, but whatever
Wait you guys are American, right?
I won’t stalk people-I just mean which are you talking about…
But anyway you wanna elaborate since I don’t totally know what you mean
Why? It’s not that surprising…
I am sure there are others who have never sparred.
Any extracurriculars that involve violence and/or blunt trauma?
Wait what *spits out drink*
Why would you purposely hurt someone? Yes, I once knocked someone’s tooth out but it was accident, a baby tooth and in self defence.
That’s literally what sparring and football are. Intentionally hurting people
Not exactly. They’re both strategic ways of beating the **** out of people, football just involved a ball and helmets.
I’m not American, I just live in America. Plus sparring isn’t just intentionally hurting people, it’s actually very strategic
Being strategic and intentionally hurting people doesn’t have to be 2 independent things
True but in sparring it is. The goal isn’t to hurt them, it’s to make them rap or get the most points
If anyone is confused, my name is Thea XD
*I transport us all to the soul flip dimension, and make a bubble around sis so it doesn’t work on her*
i was spoeing
and im dying to know what this is
Okay it’s tomorrow
Or is it today now
It’s the day of day said
ok so we’re in a something something dimension, Cats almost turned people into plants and i don’t have any popcorn.
fine Never Eliot will go cause some chaos
*I half-heartedly slam a shield into Zeze*
See this is the only reason we keep making you cause chaos, you need to have fun for once child
*yeets self through portal and goes back home*
Ahh yeeting oneself is so useful at times.
*A shield slams into the back of Cats’ skull with a sickening crack, spreading quickly and incasing her head before tightening severely*
*I fling several shields at Zeze, the edges morphing into razor-sharp blades, and enchant them to chase her around*
Why every time I say chaos your instinct is to hit me and one other person with a shield
Time to ditch though, Elsa and I have some talking to do. *I give a magical two finger solute, tapping the ground with my foot and the floor cracking open, letting me fall into the rabbit hole under it*
eeeeek sharp shields
*I run in circles with the shields chasing me before repelling them with a strong current of water*
*i block the shields with a cocoon of water around me*
*The shields hit the cocoon and bounce off*
*They begin to vibrate and start circling the cocoon, building speed until they’re flying around and around and around, churning the water and vibrating harder*
*The shields begin to melt into each other, fusing and solidifying until they’ve fully encased the cocoon in a hard shell that begins to press…[Read more]
Oh dear god
*I push both sides of the medal shell with currents of hot water, finally splitting apart the metal*
Quick question: How is a raven like a writing desk? (If anyone gets the reference I applaud you)
This was a fun thing to spoe on
Glad I didn’t almost get a plant outta my stomach-
It sure was entertaining though
Welp my internet is dead
*flops onto bed*
So I don’t know if my last comment posted
Just wanted to say this was fun and entertaining to spoe ehhehe
And also kinda sickening
But not really
It was pretty funny
I’m just glad it wasn’t me almost getting a plant through my stomach-
“Because they both produce a few notes, tho they are very flat”
I get itttt, it’s from a book, let me just remember which one, hmmmm, isn’t it from the book heartless. No wait, I can’t rememberrrr. I’m so dumb it’s from Alice in wonderland of course, and heartless I think as well. The answer to the riddle is it can produce a few notes (tho they are very flat)
Eliot I responded to your attack Also since when are you a never.
I’m normally very Ever-ish so this flipped dimension has turned me into a Never.
Oop shizzles so that means I’m an Ev??? Let me get into act… “OH MAH GAUSH DID YOU GUYS SEE ETHAN HES SO CUTE SQUEEEEE AND GET THIS HE ACTUALLY LOOKED AT ME!!! HES TOTALLY INTO ME! WERE SOULMATESSSS”
We have sarcasm, creativity, humor, and everything else you listed. We just have our own version of kindness and sweetness.
Never said you didn’t. And so? Evers can have those traits too, they aren’t specific to Nevers.
Well traits aren’t what make up Ev/Nev, it’s more of like Evs are a lot more protect and Nevs are the opposite if that makes any sense
I know, but you have to read over comments and make sure they are unlikely to offend people.
Coco, to answer your first claim “never said you didn’t” you said “not really” when we said that we had our own version of everything you listed. To answer your second, “Evers can have those traits too” I never said they couldn’t in fact you were the one who implied that us Nevers didn’t have those traits.
Umm, no. That is what you took it to mean-you interpreted my words to mean that. My point is that Evers can be what is considered ‘Neverish’ and that there is no set trait for either ‘side’.
Being in a flipped dimension does not change you-it changes your ‘team’.
I didn’t think it was offensive oof ;-;
Anyways sorry if it did offend u UwU
It didn’t offend me, it didn’t offend coco, we are all good. 🙂
Honestly you’re the person who needs to tone it down right now.
“ Uh, take a look at your own statement, please and thank you.”
The whole point of the Books is that there is competitiveness between the schools. I never implied that Nevers are better, I straight up said we are. Honestly I don’t want to engage in a fight over something as silly as this.
You even admitted it. I’m not fighting, that is something only you can turn this into.
How do you expect me to not say ‘not really’ Umm…
Of course you can reply not really! I just won’t agree with you.

Hey! I talked about this a few days ago and started a small trend based on it but once again, I want to petition for a diverse cast! Representation is a great thing so can we get some plus size and PoC going in this movie? Everyone make posts talking about diversity in the cast if you agree! A few ideas:
Lizzo for Sheeba (black and plus…[Read more]
I want to be Agatha soo bad, and I’m Asian hehe. Definitely agree with this!
Yeah, I think diversity is great! For example, Agatha they’d just have to make her look more “shadowy”. Though I feel like Sophie should look like she does in the books, cause her appearance is really important for her character.
i think if it’s really important in the books (eg Sophie) it should be kept the same but honestly, basically any other character i think would be great as a BIPOC
AND WE NEED TO MAKE SURE BIPOCS FROM THE NOVEL ARE ACCURATELY REPRESENTED like making reenactment arabian/middle eastern/indian and making kiko southeast asian, etc
I’m fine with Sophie being her book description but Asian or BIPOC Agatha would be epic! BIPOC Tedros would be awesome and I hope the POC in the books are actual POC.
Asian Agatha would be amazing and maybe black or mixed-race Tedros. And characters like Kiki and Reena obviously have to be their ethnicities in the books.
With the author being non-white I assumed he would push for that. The students are from all over so the casting could really get creative.
YES. also I can DEFINITELY see Lizzo as Sheeks it just fits. I feel every character they didnt specify the race of in the books thay should try to get as much representation as possible. so like agatha, tedros, hester (as much as I want to play her if theres open casting more representation would be worth not doing it), lesso, dovey, manly, the…[Read more]
*spoes* I’d love to see liris and lizzo as lesso and sheeks! East Asian Agatha would be awesome too
The only characters where their looks play an important part is Sophie and Anadil, so I think they should be their original akin colour, but the rest or at least most of the rest should be BIPOC.
Animals are pieces in the game
Though I’m sure at least a few know how to pause the flame
They’ll have to play smart, strong, and make bold strokes
Avoid crashing into anymore oaks
It’s a game that could kill with a single turn
They’ll have to act fast and quickly learn
It’s not a complicated game, not at all

White could move the pawns
But then they’d take bronze
Red queen would then move the horsey knight Chase
Put herself ahead in the race
That would leave little moves for white
Red would of course force…[Read more]
*I sit cross legged on a huge Unchess board in the middle, staring straight ahead* Don’t step anywhere, it won’t end well. Unless you step right there of course, right outside of the who and to the southeast of the why.
I’ve always wanted to sit here though.
It’s so pretty.
Besides, you can play lamb croquet at lamb croquet and use it as a joke…[Read more]
this post hurt my head but somehow made sense in a nonsensical, Catsie fashion
Glitter is key to most games like lamb croquet at lamb croquet
Sometime Unchess too is you play your cards right
But never play the Hearts cards
That’s just asking for the dungeons
The dungeons can be fun though
There’s cake cards and candy ceys
Ceys are like keys but sparklier and used only for the dungeons
Maybe there’s a rock candy…[Read more]
That begs the question: Which side does each knight fight for
One knight is clearly revealed but does anyone truly know what side each knight fights for
2 for red 2 for white
All unknown sides
Ooh someone sorta knows what they’re doing. Do watch out for the merryweather and most other numbers, the board has a thing for the cold.
I’m absolutely not playing the opposite game with not Kris so I know you shouldn’t step to your north
The real not a problem is not trying to figure out whether or not you’re not playing the game.
Right again, left is not always right and right is not always north, so how could you not go sideways?
Why are you moving forward? The goal of unchess isn’t to move backward and not strike down the knight.
Are we not going to the fight ring soon or just watching Baer be gone?
So does that mean you won’t pass Jacqueline or Baer? Sad day.
Heyo! Just hear to make a request: Can we have a super diverse cast? White skinny blonde-haired blue-eyed girls are fine and awesome but can I just request that these character be PoC a f diverse sizes:
– Even more…[Read more]
Yess I agree, I would love to see a diverse cast, especially since the students are from around the world it would make more sense if everyone didn’t look the same .
i think maybe a BIPOC agatha would also be good too??
YES honestly I don’t really care about their skin color or ethnicity I just want them to portray the character so well that everyone will fall in love with the series and might even get other people to start reading it!
EXACTLYYYYYY like the personality is really all that matters to me (spare sophie, if she doesn’t;t have green eyes i will throw hands, it’s been emphasized too much for it not to happen)
Sophie is the only one who absolutely needs to be pale, green eyes, blonde and only because of how big a deal it plays in the series. Everyone else I want to be as diverse as possible
YEESS I agree if Sophie wasn’t pale,green eyes and blonde there would just be something off when we watch it but yeah I agree I want the cast to be as diverse as possible
I agree. Personality is much more important than looks for the characters.
*grins because I can get a chance to audition for another character other than Reena or Hester (of course only if there’s open casting)* But of course it would still be nice to have some characters that look like their description in the books because i know some people and even Soman himself would love to see the characters be brought to life…[Read more]
Thing is the cast would still be coming to life, just in a slightly different fashion.
yeah I meant like it’s like creating a character and you see them in human form (idk if that made sense but yeah) I just know that some fans want to see them like in the books so maybe some can be the same as the book and some can be different so that everyone can be pleased (then again it’s just my opinion 🙂 )
I’m sorry, but Aggie, Teddy, and the Coven, please make them fit the descriptions. The rest, I think they should go crrazy!
Yeah the main main need to look the same while everyone it doesn’t really matter. Honestly I just want to see or be in the movie!! HAHHA
I’d love a black Tedros or at least mixed. All the main main are white and slim which really doesn’t give much representation to the rest of the world, so why not have PoC for Tedros, maybea mixed Agatha, but Sophie needs to stay the same since her appearance is such a huge deal
for me personally I think Agatha has southeast Asian or just Asian features (note that not all southeast Asians are dark skinned or brown) Tedros is NOT white, especially since they said that he is tan so maybe a brown skinned actor can play him and Sophie HAS to stay the same no exceptions, also samme @LILYBUG567 I want to play Reena I look…[Read more]
YESSS plus I don’t think Tedros was white in the first place! His description in the first book was, curly blonde hair, tan skin and blah blah blah you know all those princey stuff so yes we NEED *cough* it’a not a want *cough* a NOT WHITE Tedros
How do we pin this for everyone to know? HAHAHA The message shall be spread!
I think they have to just meet the brief. Like black hair, brown eyes for Agatha, blue eyes blond hair for Tedros, green eyes blond hair for Sophie etc.
I don’t really mind what ethnicity un less it SPECIFICALLY mentions it in the book
Also one of my best friends would die to play Agatha, and we’ve both made a pact that if there is open casting, neither will be angry if the other gets cast (we know it’s a long shot, but still)
She looks the part of Agatha a lot more than I do, and she’s half Korean. Lily’s seen her picture, I think.
And also don’t forget about Nicola! She’s a powerful, smart black female character, and I love her
I’d love a black Tedros and black Nicola, hispanic or latina/latino Aja and Valentina, Indian Reena and Nicolas, asian Agatha and Uma, and etc
I think a lot of the cast from Merlin should be in the movie including the actress who played Guinevere but maybe with blue contacts
Me having blonde hair, blue eyes, and apparently I’m skinny but I don’t think so, wanting to audition for Sophie: 👁️👄👁️
Lol but I agree with you! Diversity is needed!
Lee walked into school, rolling her eyes. She was not looking forward to this. She’d rather be out on the archery range or fine tuning her mental powers. “Alli, must we do this?” She asked her twin
“Well yeah, it’s not like we can do game night during the day after all. Night is in the name,” Alli replied, looking down at her phone and texting with an unnamed person.
Lee groaned, heading toward the auditorium. Apparently there would be some sort of welcoming there. “Why do we even still do game night? It’s not like our parents can monitor us here.”
Tobias peered past the door, into a big room, scanning the people who were filing in. He followed two girls, one with blonde hair and one with brown hair into the room, slicking back his hair. Toby plastered a smile on his face, aiming to look friendly.
Keziah pushed open the school’s double doors, pulling out her ponytail upon entering. She surveyed the school, arms crossed before noticing the crowd of people going into another, larger room. She followed diligently, looking around in interest.
Lee narrowed her eyes, sensing someone following her and alli. “First off, mirder is not fun. Although manipulation is. Second off, someone’s following us.” She walked into the auditorium, taking a seat near the back
Aria walked into the auditorium, grey eyes scanning its interior. She took in the site slowly, stopping for a moment. Aria blinked once and the world blurred, the image before her shifting. The windows were larger, spanning the length of the ceiling to the floor. The roof was see-through, providing a brilliant view of the stars beyond in mid-day.…[Read more]
Tobias glanced up at the two girls, realizing the brown haired one was eyeing him. “Hi, I’m Tobias! You can call me Toby… or Tobias, I don’t mind.” He widened his grin.
Lee smirked. She was used to guys flocking to her an alli, they were pretty hot after all. And this guy was definitely cute. But then again, was he another loser as.s like most guys? She could use her powers to find out but she decided to try and figure it out on her own. “I’m leeana. And this is my sister allison.”
Tobias gave a friendly nod and scanned their faces. “I definitely see the resemblance. Not going to lie, I was eavesdropping on your conversation. What exactly is game night? Again being honest, most games bore me to death.” He picked at his fingers.
Lee’s face turned to stone immediately, clearly annoyed. “I don’t think my sister and I want to sit with a person who listens in on other peoples conversations.” A guy like that could be dangerous, especially if he overheard game night. They might have to make him play. Lee stood, gesturing for alli to follow as she walked away.
Alli followed, not looking away from her phone until she stopped texting, looking at Lee. “Who’s the loser?”
Lee raised her brow. “Who are you texting to make you pay so little attention? It isn’t like you. And that weirdo overheard us talking about game night. I don’t know how much homework heard, but…” he was a threat if he knew anything
“Hunter. Says we have stuff to do later, just getting deets.”
Toby raised an eyebrow. “Okay…bye Leanna and Allison! Nice to meet you.” He bit his lip, wondering what they were talking about that was so important.
Tobias turned his focus to the girl next to him, staring straight into her eyes. “You seem…you seem like you’re unhappy with your life and yourself so you take it out on others, belittling them.” He continued staring and after a moment of silence, he broke eye contact, a smile growing on his face. “I’m Tobias, what’s your name?”
“Yes, you’ll have to get used to it. Do you know anything about this so called game night? I heard a couple girls talking about it.” He motioned to Leanna and Alli, who were across the room.
Lyka was standing somewhat awkwardly in the corner, she tried wearing the minimum amount of jewellery possible so no one would know her as ‘Saintess’ everywhere instead of just a normal student, but the little jewellery she wore still drew much attention. Her hair wild and free, Lyka is observing the interactions, unknowingly gripping her gloves tightly.
Lee went into Tobias’s mind, listening in on his thoughts in order to eavesdrop on his conversation with some other girl. Hopefully he wasn’t mentioning game night…. or not.
Lyka spotted a girl who was possibly zoning out, Lyka stumbled back a bit in shock when she looked at the girl’s face before shaking it off, how… scary, she thought, with a girl who looked almost too much like her, except for the hair, maybe.
Lee spotted something out of the corner of her eye and turned, spotting a girl who was nearly her mirror image except for the hair. How strange… She turned away, storing it in the back of her mind
Lyka frowned before considering to strike up a conversation or not and decided to do it, walking over, Lyka offers a very well trained polite smile,
“Me either, I find them quite boring.” And traumatic Toby winced but quickly pushed the memory to the back of his brain. The smile came back to his face and his eyes twinkled. “Let me guess, don’t let them know what you’re against or what you’re for.” He rolled his eyes.
“Lee, we need to talk real quick,” Alli looked up seeing the new girl Lyka. “Alone.”
Lee gave a slight wave toLyka as she walked away with Alli. “What’s up?”
“Game night later. Hunter and the others have their job, we have ours.”
Lyka raised an eyebrow but said nothing, shrugged and grabbed a small blade from her pocket, folding her glove back a bit, revealing a bit of the so many scars she gave herself, slicing a cut open, she brings out a bottle, letting the gems fall into the bottle until she bled no more. Slipping the blade into her pocket, she puts her glove back on…[Read more]
Alli looked back down at her phone, shooting Lee a text of the name. “Them.” (The DM plan)
Chris walked into the auditorium. It wasn’t like him to even be mildly late, but here he was. He saw Lee and Alli talking about something. Great. Another dead body to hide tonight. He sighed and took a seat near them.
Lee sighed. “Are you sure this is a good idea? I don’t think…”
“Relax Sis, we do this all the time, tonights just a tiny bit different.”
“I dont like doing this all the time. Especially now that we’re at school. We can be free.”
A cloud of bubbles floated past Aria, drifting into the very real, very large crowd of students mingling in the hallway. She blinked and the bubbles vanished, the hall’s bright colors dimming and becoming less saturated. She spotted a head of blond hair disappearing into a classroom and followed. Talents, right? Talents. Talented! Which she was.…[Read more]
Aria turned and gasped in surprise. “You would make a beautiful butterfly,” she told Adora, eyes wide. She clapped her hands excitedly again and giggled. “Done!”
Tobias peered into the talents classroom and chose a desk, not too far in the front to be a teacher’s pet but not too far in the back to be a bad kid. He recognized the girl he had been talking to before with another girl. So many girls, good thing he was bisexual. He peered at them and decided to give a slight wave to the one he already knew.…[Read more]
Aria turned to Tobias, dipping her head in greeting. Interesting. He was one of the first boys she’d seen. Maybe the rest were hiding. She turned away for a moment and peeked into a desk. No boys inside.
Lee watched with curiosity at the strange new girl who seemed out of her mind. Peeking into her head, she got a wave of colorful daydreams and insanity. It reminded her a bit of wonderland. If she were to stay too long she’d never leave. But she was very tempted to play with this girl… no. She couldn’t. She pulled away, the look of Cur…[Read more]
Alli sat in the front of the class, waving for Lee to follow her as she opened her notebook to the thousand scribbles and doodles all over every page, trying to find a blank one.
“The hallway,” Aria told her, checking the other desks. She shrugged and walked back to Adora. “You?”
Tobias raised an eyebrow, so no one was going to say hi to him. “I see how it is.” He turned towards the other black haired girl. “Me too! The hallway is great.”
“Ooh, I visited there once,” Aria said, wheeling back to Adora. “Very green. But then I made it blue. At least in my head, though I’m not sure what the difference really is anymore.” She continued snapping, humming under her breath.
“I’m Tobias. What’s your name?” Toby smiled at the girl and turned towards Adora. “I’ve never been, sounds awful.”
“Yes I am. Can I call you Arena?” Toby asked, resting his chin on his hands.
Aria nodded. “Sure.” She mirrored Toby, resting her chin on her hands as well.
Lyka was sitting near them, focused on zoning out, playing with a rather large gem in her hands.
“Cool. What’s your favorite color, Arena?” Tobias smiled warmly, tilting his head.
“Hmm…” Aria thought. “I like that one,” she finally concluded, pointing to the brightly colored patch hovering in midair in front of her.
“Ooh, yeah.” Toby pointed to another spot in the air to the left of him. “I like that one better.”
“That one!” Toby gestured to the spot of blank air. “Isn’t it pretty?”
Aria blinked. She looked back at the colored patch but it was gone. “Oh. Nothing.” She glanced at where Tobias was pointing but the air there was clear as well.
Toby stopped pointing, putting his hand in his pocket. “What are your talents and what’s your name?” He asked the new girl.
“I’m Tobias and I can see your deepest secret.” Toby grinned, waggling his fingers in front of his face.
Lyka froze, her breathing became heavier before she regained her posture from the sudden shock.
“Can you now?” Lyka breathed, the grip on her gloves tightened.
“She’s mean.” Tobias pointed at Adora. He squinted at Lyka. “You- you look a lot like these two girls I saw before. Are you related? That’s so cool! Siblings are the best.” His smile faded slightly.
Lyka narrowed her eyes at the fading smile, so siblings was a sour subject.
“No… I’m an orphan, I’m likely not related to anyone here.” Lyka informed, still wary about the fact he could see her deepest secret.
Lyka nodded at Adora, then proceeded to fidget with her gloves, itching to cut again.
“Your wings are crooked,” Aria told Adora. She leaned forward and pushed against Adora’s shoulderblade with her hand. “Better!”
“Lee, coordinates,” Alli whispered, texting Lee a few numbers before putting her phone away and watching a teacher walk in while she doodled.
“I see Toby!” Aria replied, pointing at Tobias. “And Lake.” She nodded at Lyka. “And Adora. That’s you,” she informed Adora helpfully.
Chris looked at Alli and Lee. Yep, they were definitely planning something. Great. Just great. He approached, nodding to the two. “Hello, Alli. Lee.”
“Hey loser,” Alli replies to Chris without looking up from her doodles.
“I assume you have another victim for tonight?” Wow. Oddly formal. He was trying to choose his words carefully. Probably would say ‘***** you’ to that later.
Lee smirked, hiding her doubt and second thoughts. “Yeah duh Chris”
“Wow could you talk any louder?” Alli said, dropping her pencil spinning around to face him.
“I could. But you wouldn’t like that, so I won’t.” He smirked a little.
Lee glared daggers at the telepath, immediately putting up a mental block. “Alli, that girl can read minds.” She muttered under her breath, gesturing to adora. “She’s a threat.”
They’re gonna kill him now, if they weren’t before. He put in a smile. “Why, yes it is, love.” He turned around to face the speaker. “I am Chris. You are?”
“Congratulations, now you have people curious.” Alli turned to face the new girl, but not before glaring at Chris for a second.
“Adora. A pleasure to make your acquaintance.” He nodded, smiling, Alli was definitely gonna kill him if the new girl started asking more questions. Well, she would kill him anyway.
“So whatcha want Chris?” She looked down at her nails, ignoring Adora, trying to avoid thinking of most stuff that would give any info about herself away.
“Just give me the time and place and we’ll be good.” Chris played with an end of his rope bracelet.
“Yeah right.” Lee muttered. “Good.” She glanced at alli, hesitating. She hoped they’d take the reluctance as not wanting to give Chris the coordinates, rather than not wanting to do game night. She sighed. “Whatever.” Sending he coordinates, she placed a temporary mental block in his mind so adora couldn’t see
Allison rolled her eyes again, spinning back to her notebook and sketching Leanna’s bow and arrow. “Guess we’ll see you there, as always, even though no one ever wants you there.”
“Just go, it’s only been about an hour I to the school day and yet you’ve already given me a headache.”
“If I see you tonight you’re dead. Buh bye,” Alli said, giving a wave over her shoulder for him to leave.
Alli sat quietly, hoping not to be called on. She wasn’t a fan of going first. “Adora, Chris, you’re up,” the teacher said, gesturing for the 2 to start.
Chris went onto the sparring mat and nodded to Adora. “Weapons? No weapons?”
He went and picked out a few short knives, then went back to the mat. “Your turn, love.”
He nodded, closing his eyes to conceal a flash as his sound was taken away. He gestured to her, as if to say ‘you first.’
He jumped back, the staff swiping where he was moments before. He blinked, eyes flashing again. “You missed me.”
“Neither am I.” He wasn’t lying. Weaponry he only got from watching the twins. But he was good unarmed as well. “Guess we’ll have to figure this out together.”
He put his hand over his chest. “Love, if you wanted to know the way to my heart, you could just ask. You don’t have to drive that staff through it.”
He got up and brushed himself off. “Dear? Is that who I am now?”
Keziah walked into class quietly, fashionably late, per se. Though somehow, luckily, the teacher’s head didn’t turn her way, and she slipped in without being berated.
Keziah looked at a clock, indicating her lateness. “Just a bit,” She shrugged.
“Alright…” Alli muttered as she walked to the mat, twirling a katana around her out of boredom while waiting.
Keziah blinked at her, slightly frightened, trying to suppress her fear with a pursed mouth. “Okay,” She shrugged, eying the girl as she picked up a long-bladed dagger.
“Got a name?” Alli asked, finally holding the katan still and eyeing the girl.
Alli rolled her eyes. Again. “Just try not to die.”
(Keziah is the newest newbie)
“Hopefully you don’t fail,” Alli replied, eyeing the girl’s dagger. Her stance and positioning suggest she’s cra.p at this. Well.
And she’s weird. Alli moved ever so slightly, cutting a thin, shallow cut along Kaziah’s arm, studying her fora response.
Lyka was not very interested in watching as she made little diamond figurines and weapons in the corner of the room.
“Why don’t you just drop your weapon and end this? It’s boring.”
“Neither do I.” Alli swung her sword, leaving a small nick in the girl’s leg.
Alli deflected the blow, poking a tiny circle onto Keziah’s hand. “What’s your talent?”
(No for real, like I’m too lazy to go read bios)
“Ah,” Alli nodded, slashing at the girl’s knee.
(Lucy. Why. Why are you doing this terrible fighting child.)
“Wow, you really are a beginner aren’t you?” Watching the girl jump back, Alli immediately dropped to the floor, swiping the girl’s feet before she could land and knocking her onto her back as Alli moved to hold her in an arm bar.
(Child I’m a defensive hand-to-hand fighter, that’s no excuse)
“Want to tap or shall we see how far back your arm goes?”
Keziah stood, brushing herself off. She knew she would lose, so accepting defeat was probably best. She smiled thinly as she passed a girl with a raised eyebrow.
Chris watched her. He wouldn’t underestimate anyone here. He nodded to the girl who lost, smiling slightly.
Keziah smiled back, grateful to find at least one person who didn’t seem so standoffish.
Lee rolled her eyes. They were all wimps. That had been Ali going easy
Keziah waved back, sitting down in a chair behind him. Hey, one less person who possibly considered her an enemy. Probably.
Okay. She doesn’t wanna kill him. That’s great! That’s amazing! Maybe they could be friends. Or acquaintances. That’s good too.
Tobias watched the duels, nervous for his turn. This was a lot of pressure, and everyone knew that he didn’t do well under pressure.
“Let’s see, Tobias and… Leanna!” The teacher called, waving the 2 to the front.
Tobias stood up and made his way to the front, taking deep breaths to calm his nerves. His hands were shaking furiously so he stuffed them in his pockets. Too much pressure, too much pressure, too much pressure He kept breathing, focusing on a spot on the wall. Toby plastered a smile on his face and nodded at Leanna. “Good luck.”
Tobias tried to focus on the fight but he seemed to be extremely disoriented. He couldn’t even remember where he was, he tried to focus his mind but he couldn’t. This was most definitely the worst panic attack he’d had. Toby’s mind was swirling and he didn’t know what to do with himself so like he had always done when things like this happened, he…[Read more]
Tobias gaped, trying to apologize but the words wouldn’t leave his throat. Memories were rushing through his mind, mad memories. He began breathing fast and faster but a few seconds later he was calmer, much calmer. He held back a yawn, where was he again? “Hi there! I’m Tobias.” He mustered a smile.
Tobias snapped awake at the sound of Lee’s voice. remembering where he was and what he was doing. He winced at the cut and threw a punch at Lee, pinning her against the wall.
Rather than slipping away, which she could have down, Lee linked forward and winked, before grabbing toby’s arm and propelling herself off the wall, flipping him upside down and onto the mat, landing on top of him with her elbow on his windpipe. She could have fun, right? It didn’t matter what was going to happen tonight… she lost focus as her…[Read more]
Tobias gasped for air, his cheeks flushing red at Lee’s touch. He quickly twisted out from under her arm and flipped them around, pulling her against the fall, accidently smashing a dent in the wall in the process. “Whoops.”
Toby made a face back at Lee, grabbing the sword and jumping up. He pinned her shirt to the floor with the sword and grinned.
Lee rolled her eyes and grinned, pulling out the sword and using her knee as leverage to knock Toby down onto the mat. She kneeled over him with the sword at his throat. “I win!” She said cheerfully. (WE SHOYLD SKIP TO GAMW NIGHT)
Tobias scowled at Lee, “I was going easy on you.” He walked back to his desk, straightening his posture. He was relieved that he had gotten the fight over with, even if he had lost.
omg yes let’s revive!! so we need lyka and aria to fight? and shade, of course you do!
We could make something work! I think it would be entertaining.
SO this is a bandwagon thing but I’m too lazy to tag anyone considering it’s 12:30am so if you see this you can do it if you want (I’ll be extremely impressed if you can get more than 3/10 right considering I very very rarely mention any of this stuff): https://forms.gle/oH6MT9z8wo5zWL8HA
