    I don't think I am going to look at Morgyn quite the same after this chapter, lol. They will forever be dancing around with a feather boa in lingerie, luring people to bed with their singing.

    On a more serious note, Morgyn is very superficial, everything they do is for show. I wonder if despite all their outward confidence, that they are actually hiding a very deep insecurity about themselves. I also think Morgyn is probably going to the ruin for other reasons besides Cordelia and is just using her as a cover.

    I feel bad for Cordelia. She's really been through some traumatic things in her life, and Morgyn just adds salt to the wound. It's amazing that she is holding it together so well. She does have Dandy and now Micah is turning out to be a pretty good housemate and maybe a potential friend? I'm not sure if he would even consider a friendship with Cordelia at this point. He seems to want to keep everyone at a distance and considering his past; it makes sense.

    I love it! I adore Rocky Horror Picture Show, so I highly approve of this visual. And yes, Morgyn could definitely pull off a great Frank-N-Furter. They definitely are a hot dog. Or a potato, depending who you speak to *cough*Yimi*cough*

    Definitely!

    And that's an interesting theory you've got there, I think that's a new one! :) I love seeing people's speculations.

    Cordelia is a bit of a mess, but you're right, considering everything, she's actually holding up remarkably well. She's a strong one.

    And yes, Micah does try to do that. He's an interesting character, I'm glad you like him.

    And she agrees to go with Morgyn? Who knows what other trouble she could get into? She seems the type to not like some parts of the jungle. To be fair though, it's not that uncommon for jungle explorers to run into dangers and creepy critters.

    @DeafSimmer
    Cordelia rules with her heart, not her reason. Even though she kind of tried to account for the latter here. And failed colossally, haha.

    Chapter 40
    Plumbob, why do you do this to us? :D

    What are the odds that Morgyn runs into a Selvadoradian hottie halfway to the tomb and promptly forgets all about Cordelia? Wait, does Jungle adventure have mummies? Maybe Morgyn can be cursed by a mummy. I recon they'll be super interested in lifting curses then. :angry:

    There's skeletons. They're glittery and ceramic looking like a kaleidoscope smashed to bits and have those bits stuck all over them. Not sure if that tickles Morgyn's fancy.

    Right. Any chance Cordy and Micah can get together (as friends) and find the support they need, then turn the tables against blondie? That'll be a dream come true.

    I don't see this ending well. Cordelia is going to get eaten by a jaguar or stung by a poison dart, while Morgyn gets distracted by something else, probably one of those Selvadoradan dancers. I really wish Micah was going because he seems like the most logical/responsible person of the group and would look out for Cordelia (at least I think he would). Oh well, it will be interesting to say the least. :)

    I suppose glittery skeletons could be Morgyn's thing. They are confirmed to be into shiny things, after all. Also, perhaps it would give me a chance to finally get Bonehilda.

    I mean... nothing's impossible, I suppose? Though the two of them won't even be in the same location for a while now, with the jungle expedition.

    @lone_cat
    Everybody witht he doomsday scenarios. Maybe they really will just enjoy some food and music and casually stroll by an ancient ruin, no biggie :p Micah joining along for the trip would definitely make for an interesting dynamic. Alas, it isn't possible to reach the temple within one night, and he doesn't own a portable coffin, so he'll have to stay in Glimmerbrook.

    @MonaSolstraale
    Bhahaha yet another animal to add to the list. You guys kill me. :joy: Where do you expect me to find all of this wildlife CC?

    YES! Then finish him off by boiling him in acid. (forget oil)

    Is Cordelia gonna wear that dress when exploring the jungle? But then again, it doesn't strike me as strange. Some of my female characters in my stories wore dresses when exploring. But of course, Cordelia is no Lara Croft or Sydney Fox (the woman from Relic Hunter). Anyways, I still have a feeling the jungle's gonna give Cordelia more trouble. Also, how many chapters do you think this story is going to have? I've been enjoying it so far.
  • ThePlumbobThePlumbob Posts: 4,542 Member
    @DeafSimmer
    Don't worry, she won't :D To be fair I don't think Cordelia is particularly "frilly," we've not really seen her in skirts or dresses much until now, I think she's just excited she can finally afford nice new clothes :) She will wear something else once they actually delve into the jungle.

    Aww, thank you! I think "season one" will have around 80 chapters, but there will be a sequel afterwards :)

    Also, some outtakes:
    In case anybody's wondering why I continue to write Cordelia as super-obsessed with Morgyn...

    I'm sure Morgyn is loving this, but sheesh, personal space, Cordelia! She keeps doing this.

    Even the vendor was questioning her sanity.

    Chapter 41
    Haha, Cordelia has it bad for the sage. Cordelia just hangs on Morgyn's every word. If I was her, I would not listen to Morgyn and stock up on supplies with some of the money she has. Doesn't hurt to be prepared, especially in an unexplored jungle. A machete at least or five (every time I play jungle adventures it seems like I'm always losing those darn things). But she's not me, and she puts a lot of trust in the sage. I have a feeling this is going to be a big misadventure.

    She really does. Oh I know, the number of machetes you go through in the jungle is crazy. I giess we'll have to wait and see how these two fare.

    A misadventure involving supernaturals? I think you've fot that covered already :D Everything is fine and dandy here o:)

    LOL! Those outtakes were priceless!

    Hi @Julyvee94 *waves frantically*

    Yeah I've crawled out from under a rock recently. How are you doing? :)

    Ooooh I missed one!

    Chapter 41
    Cordelia being excited about traveling to new places is adorable. A shame she’s not with Dandy or Micah or, well, anyone other than Morgyn at this point, haha. I’m so biased against them I’m starting to sound like a broken record.

    I am worried about them actually taking her into the ruins, though. Morgyn is a powerful spellcaster who can probably hold their own against most things a dangerous ruin can throw at them, but Cordelia is not. And we’ve already seen that Morgyn is easily distracted and willing to leave her to her own devices. They did that at the von Haunt estate while knowing that a vampire was prowling around. I hope they don’t do the same here, but… well… it’s Morgyn.

    Whaaat, you, biased against Morgyn? I had no idea :D:p

    So little faith. I'm sure it will all be totally fine... o:)
