Just a poem I wrote about my outside cat
A little black cat named September
With eyes like bright little embers
Sat outside, looking in
For as long as I can remember.
This curious, little black cat
Never seemed to realize that
We could never let her in–
The indoors were not her habitat.
Still, she was loved and adored
And in return she gave…[Read more]
Boinga! Just to be absolutely certain… When the Open Chat comes back, all our posts will come back too, right? Just like they were? Please please say yes! And don’t you guys delete ANYTHING, no matter how old it is!!!! Please.
“We all hope and mostly trust that this issue won’t happen anyway, but just to be completely sure.”
*jumps high in the air grinning ear to ear* KITTYWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOLF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
*starts breathing in and out fast and hard*
Sorry, it’s just nuts seeing you around again after this long!!! ToT <3
No…dude, ALL the posts we’ve ever made in the Open Chat have disappeared from our activity pages as well. They’re not anywhere for us to save.
And anyway, I dunno about anypony else, but I want to save EVERYTHING. even the super embarrassing stuff from when I was a newbie.
*Berry swoops in before it can hit me and sweeps a hand through the air in a way that makes it go bursting in all directions–some of it getting on pretty everypony in the room EXCEPT for me and her (a bunch of it gets all over you)*
*Berry teleports me back and pours hot sauce on your head*
Don’t mind if I do.
*A large cloud of fog appears and I fall out of it.*
*Suddenly, lava begins to fall out of the cloud and I pull out a titanium umbrella*
Too bad for y’all!
*Berry had a really thick forcefield around me and her, protecting us from the lava*
*it bursts, now that the lava is cranberry juice*
*i start splashing buckets of that juice on @thecoven4ever as well as shooting exploding pancakes at her*
*Berry tosses all kinds of pastries at her*
*A sort of inky slime crawls across the floor, trying not to leave too much of itself behind*
*breaks off a spike and uses it to create a hole*
*Becomes more fluid to flow out, then more solid to minimize splattering*
*Hurries across floor*
‘I can’t tackle myself.’
*lets go of them and shifts back to being amorphous*
‘Sorry, everyone. I didn’t mean to do that.’
(Oh dear, I thought the ink had been formed from something else. My bad.)
*Holes begin to open up in the ground, and hoards of groundhogs poor out of them*
*One groundhog lifts a red flag, and points it at @kittywolf424, @boomboompancakes, and @royalfudge*
*The groundhogs all swarm them, knocking them to the ground*
*I was already on the floor*
*Flattens to resemble a black tile and the groundhogs move on*
*notices the grout between the tiles and travels in the crevices*
*I get out a plethora of forks, and start chucking them until Twig and KW are completely surrounded*
*Berry sm.ashes through the shell with a blast of magic*
‘Thank you, Berry, for not also ganging up on a liquid.’
*Once resettled into a gap, I become semisolid and begin to lengthen, stretching farther and farther*
*Is able to stick onto a wall and releases grip on crevice*
*Effectively works like a rubber band*
*slips under the door and scurries up another wall*
*rests near the ceiling, altogether smaller*
‘Just let me take a break from continually stretching and altering my density.’
‘How do I separate this juice and whatnot from me? What even am I?’
I have neither tried plasma or gas nor want to. Slimy ink is enough.’
*i start covering her with tomato sauce*
*Berry mushes frosting into the tomato sauce, rubbing all over her*
‘You’re a runny, wriggling mess that leaves droplets behind. How do you move without limbs? How do you see, hear or breathe without the necessary parts? Why do you talk without a mouth? Can you dry out? What if someone steps on you? Would you feel while on the shoe and the floor? What’s with the sudden elasticity or selective adhesiveness? Can…[Read more]
‘Your mint bubble comment answered no to the last question.’
Wow those were some very in depth answers. Quite impressive, Orla. Can one be emotionally hurt by being stepped on? I’d imagine so… I mean, what if you wanted to be stepped on, so you could attach to the shoe and hitch a ride somewhere? That could be a method of transportation. Maybe that’s why gum is so sticky… it travels on shoes that it’…[Read more]
Ah, reading this makes me happy. The hypotheticals of liquid lives.
I suppose that a liquid would be quite easily wounded, as they can be frozen or heated quite easily, though it does depend on the type, as you said, Orla. But what if they were thrown in with a whole bunch of other liquids? I can’t say that it would be very pleasant. In fact, the…[Read more]
‘The consensus of this form may be that I am what I think I am. If having senses is accustomed to, then it might carry over when it ostensibly shouldn’t.’
True. A conscious liquid… Still, I want to know what would happen if you were tossed in with a bunch of other conscious liquids.
I think it would depend on the type of liquid. And the relation. Like, oil and water would have separate consciousnesses, and even separate bodies, just in the same house? But say you mixed wine and grape juice, which are quite similar but not the same, then you might have a sort of melded consciousness. Like… two minds that telepathically merge…[Read more]
It won’t be proven unless we find other conscious liquids. How well I freeze has to do with what type of ink I am, plus the slime part. I may revert to being human if damaged enough
Well perhaps we should all try our hand at being conscious liquids. That way, we’d be able to do an experiment. I can make an attempt, although I’m not sure would liquid I would be. Maybe the liquid chooses you? Is it even possible for a liquid on its own to have a consciousness, or does it need an outside factor to effect it? Do the liquids eve…[Read more]
It started with transmuting to resist fighting. I was supposed to become a shadow instead. Interestingly, when Catsrule collided with a few of them once, they briefly resembled ink
Ah this is so interesting. I was not expecting a conversation on liquids.
Conscious liquids would also be able to escape a container they were in, theoretically, as they could control where they move and their thinness.
And willpower… It may be that they’d just fight over it, but what if they partially merged, and partially stayed apart? That…[Read more]
‘The merge must involve mutual consent and the option to quit at any time. If one is clearly distressed, are the rest of you just going to watch? Though I look different, I am still my own person.’
Okay, I’m going to favourite this because this is just the most amazing thing I have stumbled upon. Thank you so much for enlightening me with this knowledge.
But I think that if two conscious liquids didn’t want to be separate, it might be easier to separate them if they were in another state of matter? Perhaps a gas would make it possible, for then the particles might be more easily maneuvered. Although, if one liquid wanted to separate and not the other, then it might become, as I believe orla s…[Read more]
‘I tried to leave the fight to prevent viciousness. My shadow form (possessing my shadow while my body temporarily vanishes) would be quick, stealthy and nearly intangible. In the midst of the transformation came the realization that Twig and Berry would likely attack me with bright lights. Alas, I couldn’t stop shifting and somehow ended up as i…[Read more]
‘I’m not sure if I can voluntarily revert. Does the slime part of me have cells? If so, how would being forced back affect them?’
I don’t think you can, unless you go into a light, in the freezing cold. Freeze yourself so you can be solid, and the light to counteract the shadow you originally were trying to do. Or maybe just the light, so you can be backlit, and form back into a shadow again.
I’d assume the slime part would have molecules rather than cells, whereas the inky-shadow section is more of a cell based liquid. I’d imagine the molecules would simply dissipate back into existence, although I’m not sure what the cells would do. Die, perhaps?
‘We can try the cold and light together. Fully becoming a shadow would mean shifting after that and possibly malfunctioning again.’
‘Between freezing and light sensitivity, they will respond before too long. If you want to know how well I have recovered in the past, ask Darkfire.’
‘Getting crushed under a massive spider or impaled, for example’
Ah… How… interesting? It strikes me as funny that Darkfire had to ask about what specific incident, seeing as that implies that there have been a myriad of incidents in which you were transformed into inky slime and had to figure out a way to revert to your normal form. Sounds like fun times!
‘No, the question referred to how many times I have had to mend myself. This current state is utterly new.’
‘I have been shrunken, a shadow, and a being of electricity/fire (I left ashes on the floor yet siphoned from and burned out lamps. I am rarely fully transformed due to its destructiveness, instead merely glowing)’.
‘Don’t you love it when you’re cold, go Human Torch and everyone says, “This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things”‘
‘Oddly, no one ever thought to douse me with distilled water to stop the electrical fire.’
‘The fire blanket would come after the power source has been cut off. It is often made of wool, which is a non-conductor.’
‘Is the source external, as implied by siphoning from lamps, or internal?’
‘It isn’t a grease fire because flammable liquids are not involved. The form is either derived from electricity or self-made (organic) fire.’
‘Failsafes should be both fireproof and non-conductive, lest they be burned or shocked. If a fire blanket is used, a person drapes it over me unless I’m too extensive or intense. However, I don’t want to mutate into an anaerobic thing under the blanket.’
‘While doing so as a shadow or slimy ink doesn’t directly harm others, this particular situation would.’
‘Tempting as it may sound, hiding could worsen the situation.’
Indeed it could. Shall we attempt the cold and the light, then, to transform you back?
‘The cold on its own would cause me to retreat into a shadow that is not bothered by it. Introducing them simultaneously should prevent fleeing into yet another unnatural form.’
‘I’m ready. We need some sort of enclosure both to protect you from the cold and keep me staying put that is neither airtight nor will feel cramped.’
‘The temperature should gradually decrease inside the enclosure instead of suddenly dropping below 0°F.’
‘At some point I will need air. The reversal itself may be the quickest part of the process rather than a gradual transmutation. (In an incident, you are temporarily rendered defenseless and thus cannot take your time. Imagine, “Would you mind waiting while I get rid of my organs?”)
‘I’m currently proof of what happens when you don’t properly concentrate.
Once I change back, the cold will be even more unbearable.’
‘Since the enclosure is glass, I could travel through a reflection and emerge from the mirror realm somewhere else. I might be too worn out from the transformation to do it, though.’
‘One of my abilities that I just demonstrated is overthinking simple things’
‘Darkfire, if you have ice powers, can you lower the air temperature inside the enclosure?’
‘Once we find a suitably bright light, the preparations for
torture encouragement should be complete.’
‘Why shouldn’t we get it over with?’
*Slides down the wall and over to the enclosure*
*Tendril stretches up to turn doorknob*
‘If being touched can cause me to cave in, then the cold would as well. Alternatively, a frozen mimicked shape is prone to shattering.’
We could make it shatter proof. Anyone got any flex tape?
‘To show you the power of Flex Tape, I sawed this inky slime resembling a person in half’
*pours out of your hands and the wrapping*
‘We don’t know if Ican look like that.’
‘Stretching into a humanlike look is probably too strenuous.’
‘What if we shut the door, switched the light on and started freezing as planned?’
*Mild discomfort becomes more severe as slime starts warping*
Good luck, and shout when you’re close to shattering point.
*shivers before hit with a sudden wave of cold*
*reflexively escalates, sprouting spikes that scratch and chip the surface of the glass*
*perceives my new size nearly presses me against the enclosure’s ceiling*
*resigns myself, knowing there is no use in resisting*
*slumps down against wall and retracts spikes*
*Light flares and seems to come from multiple directions, blinding*
*burning sensation despite freezing*
Burning, blinding, freezing…. Burning, blinding, freezing…
*there is nothing to shield me*
Burning, blinding freezing… Burning, blinding, freezing. Burning, blinding, freezing.
*shrieks as I diminish, contracting and feeling…[Read more]
*A few tendrils extend, slightly dripping before solidifying with joints*
*The black recedes to reveal fingers- finger bones*
*Should I put up a slimy ‘curtain’ or cocoon to censor the more appalling details?*
*They’re not present yet. The tweak I felt was actually my ribcage developing. Logically, my skeleton is the base layer*
*No, skin comes much later. The slime cocoon will substitute in order to hold me together*
*Skeleton finishes forming and is enveloped in slime*
*The liquification is reversed at a quick rate*
*Fingers claw at and break the surface, emerging with skin this time*
*sheds the rest of the husk as it has been replaced with skin and cloth*
*Face is now visible*
*Slime was almost gone before you turned down the temperature*
*The cold causes it to regress and try to envelop again*
*Humans get cold but are not harmed by light. Shadows do not get cold but are susceptible to light. Inky slime is resistant but not immune to both cold and light.*
*The cold and light are not needed because I seem pretty stable*
*Appears virtually [pun unintended] the same as before the accident*
Yes, after all I was able to break out of the cocoon… and I can actually talk again! Of course, my heart beats and my lungs breathe as well.
*still shivering, grips onto railing and slips when attempting to stand*
I don’t think so, it could melt you… You could have a blanket though, until your body heat starts to come back.
*Blanket briefly adheres until I consciously unstick while unfolding it*
The slimy properties should wear off
Selective stickiness may be less problematic than elasticity or altering density
I’m not sure. The properties could last for a while due to being shapeshifted for so long
Oh dear that is a good point. Perhaps it would help if we got a molecule separator and reverse engineered it to compact your molecules and revert the lingering properties?
Though this conversation is one of my favourites, ever
Ahhh that must be annoying
Well, at least it was an interesting one.
Conscious liquids, and how the world around them would effect them. And later, how to get KW (KittyWolf) back to human.
It is. If you read the comments, it all started as a food fight. Then changed into whatever we’re left with.
This scenario could have been more repulsive. There was ‘inky slime’ mostly made of ‘shadow essence’ rather than crawling human soup with pieces of flesh and bone bits. Adding a face as well is worse.
I theoretically could have turned back since I caused it, but was mode-locked. Magic from an external source carried the risk of further messing up my form.
Human soup isn’t the most unpleasant possible application
I just saw this…
I don’t fully understand the logistics of this. Either way, you’re a humanoid now, so that’s good.
Humanoid just implies human-like. As to what a human is, we do certainly share certain traits, especially in how we respond to things.
Indeed, I suppose that is so. I remember one post where I stated all the things I was… To welcome a newbie… So many different book series’, characters, etc…. And then everyone else was doing it too… It was amazing…
*Starts to cry*
(Someone sees new parent holding a blanket bundle): “Ah, what a cute baby!”
(Parent rearranges blanket to reveal blob of faceless slime): “Yeah, this little guy’s a newborn. He hasn’t developed flesh and blood yet.”
Advertisement of puddle lounging under a heat lamp: “Premium Senior Living!”
Elder: “My fingers aren’t what they used to be.”
“‘Cause of arthritis?”
Elder: “No, they’re gooey and backwards-bending.”
Person: “so, has your baby taken its’ first steps?”
Parent: “No, but it’s jiggled.”
“Help, there’s a spill all over the kitchen floor.”
“What did the child spill?”
“Just scoop it into a pitcher and it’ll be fine.”
“Excuse me, miss, but you can’t try that on.”
“It’s absorbing you.”
“I think I’ll go outside today. It’s not too hot.”
*Shoulder starts softening and bubbling*
“Apparently it is.”
And the flip side
“My shoulder fell off. Why must liquids have a freezing point?”
Sure, I morph into polyhedrons and stretch inhumanly far at the possible cost of falling apart if I’m not careful. Such an awful curse. Woe is me
I’m very glad I’m not a slime right now.
Did we ever manage to change you back, KW?
Well that is quite inconvenient
Perhaps we should reverse your age? That could counteract the molecule, a sort of time travel thing.
Wait…what’s it like if you’re ever caught in the rain when you’re slime? Do the rain and slime mix? What’s THAT do to you
When I sense it’s about to rain (dark clouds gathered, drops dotting the concrete, feel and smell moisture in the air, the first drops falling on me), I get under cover immediately and turn human. Slime creatures have a water-resistant but not waterproof surface.
I prefer to quickly shower over the time-consuming method of manually removing contaminates from slime
I don’t mind absorbing some water; in fact, I need to in order to stay hydrated
As slime I don’t have cells. Quoting from another comment chain, “‘A moisture imbalance immobilizes slime creatures either by drying them out to the point of brittleness or diluting them in too much water.'”
What do you expect to happen? Even a moisture imbalance can’t obliterate me
Well, speaking hypothetically, if we were to figure out a way to cause a perpetual moisture imbalance and then separate you into pieces down to the smallest molecule and scatter those pieces across the universe, I’d imagine you would be very nearly dead. Unless of course each molecule still held a sliver of consciousness
I’m uninterested in starting an incident. Your potential eradication plans were best executed long ago
Humans can complete many tasks much better than slime. If I only shift intentionally, there shouldn’t be much of a problem.
If I had to choose a permanent form, I’d be human. Humanoid shaped slime sounds perfect but even basic tentacles are too strenuous to sustain continuously
The closest to humanoid slime is liquifying everything except my skeleton but partial liquification doesn’t seem good for one’s body
Tentacles are uncomplicated
-any length or thinness
-bend in any direction, floppy
-no intricate details, natural stickiness substitutes for su©ke®s
-up to five so far can be deployed at a time
Hands must look and move a certain way to avoid the uncanny valley. So much focus would be directed on maintaining a single hand to the point of u…[Read more]
Slime creatures slowly crawl along the ground… unless they somehow walk on their tentacles or use their elasticity to yeet themselves
I don’t even know how to begin thinking about that statement.
Despite a sometimes rough landing, the slime will be none the worse for the wear.
If you want horror the following is possible without injury:
-eyeballs melting to reveal eye sockets
-fingers are yoyos
– gaping hole throughout midsection
-spiral legs and neck is a pretzel.
Not to mention transforming into slime on accident. I was forced to feel…[Read more]
I am both horrified, disgusted, and intrigued. Sounds like being slime is both a delight and an inconvenience.
Not until after I switched forms at will did I begin to explore the capabilities of slime creatures. Chances are a natural specimen behaves much differently because they have always been slime and never human.
Partially liquifying a specific area of the body is terrible because it disrupts critical functions
Ooh, that’s a good point… I do hope you don’t get stuck in an in-between state, that would be unfortunate.
We would have to use something like the procedure of last time… a difficult task for sure.
Suppose I transmuted an arm into a tentacle. How does slime handle blood flow when it doesn’t have blood?
Turning human again is dependent on trusting that my body instinctively reverts to its proper anatomy instead of a jumbled heap
‘No! You can’t just liquify your body whenever you want! That disrupts your critical functions! Logically, your body should be a jumbled heap nowhere near resembling a human! No!’
‘Haha, I’m going slime’
Logic’s place is trying to apply actual science concepts until one is forced to admit this is mostly magic
This is the year-long shapeshifting horror saga that made “off-topic comments will be regarded as spam and users will be issued a warning, then a ban if they continue” totally worth it
I have a feeling Jun doesn’t even know we’ve been commenting on here. He probably only checks his mentions.
Signs a slime creature may secretly be a shapeshifter
1) The obvious: shapeshifter babbles about how their liquid body is a superpower as if they haven’t been living in it all their life.
2) Instead of just sliding under the barrier known as “door,” the shapeshifter fabricates an elongated appendage to turn the kπ0b on the barrier
….It’s a post. Of wonderful manically insane things.
You know. A regular post talking about slimes form and shape and hwo some are shapeshifters- and how much stuff can get stuck in them. …So, a regular SGE post. Nothing concerning about it. (Unless they were all secretly planning a murder using the talk of slime as a code… then, we should…[Read more]
There are no flickering lights, walls opening their eyes, skull-shaped puddles of ooze or other telltale signs
Yes. Go back to sleep. I was never here.
(Happy late Halloween!)
But it’s the afternoon and I just ate lunch, so I can’t go back to sleep.
*gooey forearm reattaches with a squelching sound and becomes flesh and blood again*
Quips to quickly walk away from
Someone (suggestively): “Since you’re made of ink, I could really use some help with my printer.”
“When you get a haircut, does everybody in the room refill their pens?”
“Sorry, Inky, you can’t sit with us yet. We forgot to cover everything in plastic wrap first.”
“Thank god you didn’t live in the 1800s, the quills would have been all over you.”
Role reversal: the ink stabs you with the quill and writes using your fluids
Tantalus’ inkwell: Upon contact, ordinary-looking ink becomes the stickiest tar that can break your quill (and possibly finger if you use your bare hand). Once you leave it alone, it will relax back into ‘regular’ ink
If someone drank me, I’d be more concerned for them than myself. They might not ingest enough to damage the nervous system, though
[not RP related, but I thought might be helpful for you amazing authors!]
If you have any more questions: go tag me @ soulreaper and ask away! :>
Thanks so much Uncle Kas. This was so useful for writing my latest chapter 🙂 . I’ve favourited this.
the absolutely wonderful
Thank you so much. I’ve been wondering how people put sentences in bold letters or in different fonts. 🙂
I’ve tried all of them but none of them are working. Can someone please assist me?
Okay guys I got it! Where soulreaper says “text you want” that’s where you put stuff you want to write and put those symbols and stuff in before and after what you just typed.
put the second one at the end.
I mean put the one with the slash at the end of your sentence(s). If I type it all you guys will see is bold letters and not the directions on how to do it lol.
b/b YAY THANKS SO MUCH FOR TEACHING US! WE WILL NEVER FORGET YU! b/b
You have to put the first b with no slash and in between <
Thanks. I acually haven’t heard of you before but now I have! Your amazing!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks. I have also been wondering how to do this stuff..
Ummm, every time I use it, it does the rest of the words in stead of just that section. Do you know why?
I think I joined this website for the sole cause of giving you someone to fantasize about Trolls with.
*suddenly stops smiling*
Berry…take my temperature.
Because I’m getting an URGE to hug somebody!
*group hug ensues between everybody involved with this post in any way*
“Honestly if I were you, K-wolf, I’d shut my mouth and enjoy the hug while it lasts.”
Are we forgetting that Boom Boom freaked out the last time you hugged each other?
“Well at least I stopped them fangirls.”
*my brain is freaking out BIG TIME*
*the rest of me doesn’t move even though i desperately want it to*
“Wow…this is actually surprisingly satisfying…”
*my eyes look at berry in horror*
*the rest of me stays frozen*
*my brain is screaming uncontrollably*
*my body stays put*
*i am confused*
What are you going to do?
“This hug is getting a little awkward.”
That hugging was kinda weird.
“It was like the longest group hug ever.”
“It’s like Boom Boom and I can’t hug each other without there being some drama.”
Well, we aren’t the nicest people in the world. Sometimes we’re mean, are deceptive, or seem indifferent. But somehow we end up with friends, people who seem to care about and trust. How is a mystery.
