[Accidental Video]

[There is a girl on your screen. She's not doing anything particularly interesting. With her chin propped up on a hand, she's reading a book, looking a little bit cross. She's wearing a collared white shirt, too big in some places and too small in others, the wrinkled sleeves rolled up to the elbow. And she's sitting at a counter in a dim space in what's probably a store, judging by the vague shapes of shelves in the background.

Those who frequent it might recognize the shop as a certain second-hand bookstore. Whether that's enough information to work out why the young lady looks so annoyed, though, is a different matter...]

I think this is a pretty nice curse; I've seen some pictures I recognize, and some with people I recognize, and I guess as long as there's nothing too bad out there you might as well enjoy it. I mean, with how long some people have been here-- and since some people can't leave-- it's nice to have that reminder I think.

I am a little confused by this one, though.

not cut IC )

That's not me-- I mean, I know that sometimes there are a lot of people here who look like me, but that almost seems like it could have been. In a play or something I mean.

Strange.

Anyway I hope everyone is enjoying this as much as they can... I'm trying to keep track of ones with people I know, in case they'd like to keep them. If anyone finds pictures of mine-- if you can tell-- I would like to see them.

[Private to Billy;]

I'm pretty sure this is yours-- I wasn't sure you'd want it anywhere where everyone could see, so. Yeah.


[ooc; here are Neil's pictures if you'd like to find; if there's anything you want him to see feel free to pooke me.

EDIT; must be off, more tomorrow bbz <3]

That curse, did it really mean--

Does that mean I'm oh god I can't even say that I can't think that maybe--

I hope no one puts that idea into his head, I don't want him to think-- to be angry at me and.

oh god.



Things here are never quite what I expect them to be. Which I usually like, but those things yesterday were creepy. I managed to keep away from them, mostly, and shooed a couple of them out when they slipped through the open door, so I didn't lose any teeth. Still, I'm kind of bothered by the thought of those things crawling under pillows... I mean, it's just your parents who do that when you're little, really, but I can't help imagining it.

I haven't really written anything here since that one ridiculous curse. I think I've apologized to everyone I spoke to, but, just in case, all of that was nonsense and I wasn't raised by spiders. Obviously. And to the best of my knowledge Todd has never been an astronaut.



[ooc; 'And pour the waters of--'... Strikes are not written he is just panicking. <3]

It's been a while since I wrote anything here, probably because I was kidnapped by pirates and they cut off my little finger to keep me from typing up a 'help' message. It's not so bad. You get used to it after a while. I mean, I'm used to feeling a little underequipped because I only have two arms and two legs, but I was raised by tarantulas, so my brothers and sisters always got around a lot better than I did.

One thing you don't get to do, being raised by tarantulas, is travel a lot... And in that department pirates definitely know how to do things. I think if they'd explained the situation to me-- that in exchange for my swabbing the deck and cooking and doing other chores, they'd take me around to see the whole world-- I probably would have gone along with them willingly. Really, there was no reason to raze the town and put Mr. Nolan in irons.

Anyway, I hope you're all doing well, in spite of things. It looks like some people are cursed, which really isn't surprising. I'm glad when I found the fountain of youth, that it took away my ability to be cursed, that's really made life a lot easier since. Take that, Ponce de León.



[EDIT; tarantulas. srsly.]
