  8. At least one of my heroes to act in this quest is a guy named Jack. Captain Jack, if you will! Now, WHICH Captain Jack it is, that's sort of up to you? Handsome, devil-may-care, with a smile for dangers and an ability to somehow get himself out of dangerous situations (and no one expected it ...). He's somehow found out how not to die (BUT NOT LIKE MOLDY VOLDY), or at least, hasn't died in spite of being killed. (Maybe killed a few times...) Abilities? Hmmm. Good with weapons, a certain amount of wit, but also he has the ability to just keep going. No matter what. Usually he's found in clothing which suits the time and place, but almost always that garb will include a pair of boots and oftentimes some sort of head gear like a hat. He's partial to coats ... especially if they have a bit of a flair to them when he walks. Magical powers you ask? None that he admits to. As for more specific description of my bold hero doing the legwork. Let's start with legs. Yes, nice legs. Muscular legs. Legs that can do a lot of running! Trim torso and shoulders which might (by some) be called broad, and others might say who care, they suit him! Hair is a nice dark-ish colour. None of this blond stuff - nope! Sometimes clean-shaven, sometimes not. (Depends on where he is, after all.) So, which 'Captain Jack' do you think he is? :D
  9. Ash slips and slides under your feet, nearly sending you to your knees (again). You pause, taking deep breaths of the soupy air. A faint breeze ripples over the blasted landscape. The path curves around a shoulder of volcanic rock up ahead. You’ve no idea how much longer it will take to reach the summit. Or, you think as another plume of smoke shoots into the air, whether you really want to. You stumble on up the track, running over the only clue you have to what you’re here to retrieve The Treasure (10 beans): Crafted of gold by Hephaestus, I make you fleet of foot. What am I? Do some research and put your answer at the top of your submission You make it a little further before you have to pause, sinking down on a rock. You slowly turn your head, taking in the desolation around you. The Journey (20 beans): Make a graphic of the volcanic landscape you’ve found yourself in. Upload your image to an image hosting site and include the URL in your submission. The air is much colder up near the top. A bird cries from somewhere above and a fleeting dark shadow passes low over you. The wind whips gritty ash into your face and you duck your head, trying to protect your eyes. You are so preoccupied with this that you nearly pitch forward into a deep crater with sheer sides. Scrambling to regain your footing on the disintegrating ground, you catch sight of a gleam of gold in the dark depths of the hole. The treasure is down there, far out of your reach. The bird from before, a magnificent gold and red phoenix, comes into land on a boulder around 20 feet away and gives you a look as if to say ‘so, now what you gonna do?’ Victory (20 beans): In 100 words, describe how you would retrieve the treasure from the hole. There is no right or wrong answer: just so long as it makes sense. You have: What’s around you as well as a length of rope (but nowhere to tie it), a metal spike, some food and a little water You cannot: Summon the object (as it is immune to magic) or climb down the sides unaided as they are two steep The deadline is 11.59 PM HOL-time on April 30th. Send all your tasks in one private message to me (Sky Alton). Once the deadline has passed, feel free to share your images and or your solutions as a reply to this thread (but only AFTER the deadline).
  10. Sort of Guiliccent? I do stay up ridiculously late because I'm engrossed in a story but I tend to realise what I'm doing and know it's a silly idea (and carry on anyway cause story) Has left a skype or phone call running while they went to do something quickly and totally forgotten about it, leaving the person on the other end wondering what's going on.
  11. Melodious
  12. Very true Has received an electric shock
  13. I'd rather live someplace beautiful where WiFi is bad. Would you rather walk along an ocean shore in a storm with great wind and it's cold or along a river with calm skies and warmth?
  14. Slytherin but a hero. No question. I love being a Gryffindor with all my heart but my morals are more important than the colour of my house badge. I always want to be known for doing what needs to be done (and being a Slytherin probably wouldn't be at all bad). Would you rather live somewhere beautiful where the WiFi was bad or have an amazing connection but only a brick wall to look at?
  15. Xanadu #738678
  16. I would be rather at Hogwarts or Narnia then my own world. Would you rather: be a Gryffindor BUT a Death Eater? or a Slytherin BUT a hero?
  17. False. I go with lighter clothing. Don't want to sweat. it gets really hot here. loves to sing a song randomly after it gets stuck in your head.
  18. Sound
  19. Guilty.. get so lost in a story that you forget to sleep and stay up all night?
  20. 3213, lets keep going!
  21. 3212
  22. Innocent. Though I have come close, I caught it before it touched the floor (does that count?) Has nibbled on the back of a pen/eraser/stylus?
  23. Ear
  24. True. Very true. Loves wearing darker colors in the summer more than lighter colors?
  25. true I have my Cherry wood wand and now I have a new one of Oceanspray. Prefers to stay up late and read whenever possible.
  26. Does my head count? Otherwise false (though I wish it were true). Using electronic books for the most part does at least help keep them neat, even if the magic I mention above is lacking. Owns a wand
  27. Misheard
