  • Hello Guys.
    So i've been really busy lately and this board is kinda dead so I'm going to pause this RP.
    I'm sorry.
  • Ethel: We arrive at the Terracotta Forest, and we are setting up camp. It's very wet and muddy, so I find a dry spot to set up my tent. I help Harmony make her tent, then roll out my 'mattress' and make my bed. I pull out my foldable chair, then start searching. I find a silvery looking thing covered with vines. I grab my machete that I bring while exploring and tear up the vines. It has a gold marking on it with the numbers '2018' It is a roundish dome shape and it is very rusty. I run back to the campsite screaming "I FOUND THE MACHINE!" I lead everyone over to it and everyone inspects it.
    We are setting up camp the the terracotta forest
  • Annabeth: I looked at the map and noticed a M marked at the left corner it was super small but I didn't tell anybody because it wasn't my turn.
  • Hellooooooooooo
  • Ethel: I wake up and check the clocktower. 7 o'clock am. I get dressed and read in the common room until Matt comes in and wakes everyone up, and says "Today, we will have breakfast and then you will converse with Miss Claire Fontaine in the lab. I will lead you there after breakfast." He leads everyone to the dining hall and the table is decorated with every breakfast food you could want: Toast, cereal, fruit, pancakes, waffles, eggs, and any other food you could ever imagine. Everyone devours the food then Matt leads us to the Laboratory where Dr. Fontaine is waiting. "We are here to discuss the map. One at a time each of us will make observations of the map, and list them on some paper." I make an observation first, and say, holding a spying glass "There is a minuscule red dotted line. There are some remnants of dust. OH!" I gasp. "There is a MACHINE on the photo!" I say. "Show me." Dr. Fontaine demands. I point to a tiny photo of a machine in the left-hand corner. "We may find that machine when we go to the Terracotta Rainforest. We will leave the day after tomorrow." Dr. Fontaine says. Everyone nods, and the next person observes (Sheenagh it's Harmony)

  • Annabeth: I just realized it was still night and I freaked out I went to my dorm put on my night dress and got into my bed and read The Black Stallion
  • Ethel: Me and Harmony play for at least an hour. I win, but that's what I was expecting since I'm pretty much a master. I brush my teeth, put on my night-clothing, and read in bed until 8 o'clock and fall asleep.

Staying Friends With Long Time Friends

I have this friend who's not on NMG who would probably like it if I called her Carolyn (that's not her real name). We met in kindergarten and call ourselves best friends, but we don't seem to have as many similar interests nowadays. I don't have many other friends, so she's really important to me. Do you know how we can stay good friends?-Jade     It's great that you have a friendship that's lasted that long. Even if you don't have many shared interests anymore you can still enjoy each other's…

Staying Committed to a Story

I find it really hard to keep motivated while writing. I often am really excited about a story I start writing, but after a couple paragraphs I lose motivation and never continue the story. Any advice? -Anonymous I completely understand this! I am currently in the process of trying to stick to the longest story I’ve ever attempted. In the past, I’ve stuck to poetry and short stories for this very reason, but I’m trying to push myself with this project during quarantine! Here are a few tips…

How do I get through the corona quarantine without seeing my friends? -Sophia   Ah, the question of the season!
