Sorry I haven’t checked in all week. @oswin1800 like I see your point about thoughtspeak but she does need a way to communicate with everyone while they’re animals. I didn’t even know thoughtspeak was a thing until you mentioned it, I assume the others can communicate while they are animals? Can they also sense thoughts/emotions? I assume penny’s thoughtspeak will help her improve her normal speaking and might even improve faster than her normal speaking. Penny will know what words are supposed to sound like as she gets more familiar with the English language, but it would be difficult for her to form the words because her mouth doesn’t know how yet
And the heart is hard to translate
It has a language of its own
It talks in tongues and quiet sighs,
And prayers and proclamations

Yeah everyone should be able to use thoughtspeak while in animal form. I don't think they can sense any emotions though.

Just a note for everyone else deaf people cannot read lips perfectly and can't understand a lot of words even if they are proficient at lip reading. If writing Penny in a scene it would be inaccurate for her to understand what anyone is saying in large amounts due to this and also because of her young age. That can obviously change as she learns more.
Just something to be concious of.

Because it's beautiful, it's tough, it's buried in our mythic, childhood memories.
It's covered with human triumphs but also with sad stories of failure.

Challenged Adventurer(s): @Wolfical @Chaser @HazelGrace16 @Steggy @Europa @Rydia @Veni @Gravity @AstralHunter @TheSilverFox @Oswin1800

Storybook: Animorphers 2.0.

The Challenge:


Memory, all alone in the moooonliigghhhttt.

Memories are an important part of your character. Their pasts have shaped them, effected them, made them who they are. They might never have been friends with a certain person or experienced a certain thing had the coin of fate flipped on the other side. For this challenge, we're going to delve into those stones of their pasts that have yet to be unturned.

For The Original Animorphers

You will receive 2 Points for recounting how your character originally met one of the other Animorphers, before the field trip and the Animorphers experiment.

OR

You will receive 1 Point for recounting a memory from your character's past, unrelated to the other characters in the SB.

For The New Animorphers

You will receive 2 Points for your character interacting with another new Animorpher they have yet to converse with and make a new memory.

OR

You will receive 1 Point for recounting a memory from your character's past, unrelated to the other characters in the SB.

Completion Time: October 1st (End of current round)

Credits Awarded: 1-2 points, depending on challenge chosen. If participant has two characters, then they have a chance of being awarded 4 points all together.

Time's up! If anyone completed the challenge but never claimed, you have a short amount of time left to do so.

Cool post, @Europa! Just one thing: weren't they already tested? I'm not really sure about where we are right now.

Nice post, @Europa! I'm really liking Alex's character.

@BrumalHunter, sometimes post are a little out of order and that's okay. In my post, I mentioned they'd been tested. In Europa's post, I think she went back in time to earlier that day so she could show how their tests went. That happened a lot in 1.0.

----------

So, who of the original Animorphers wants to post next? I don't think there too much more for the new ones to do until they're rescued now, so we should try to catch the timeline up on the original Animorphers side (like having them meet up at the rebel base, recuperate, be briefed on the mission, etc...)

Oh, okay. Thanks for the clarification, @LeftyWriter! (Some SBs I'm in disallow that, so I just need to get used to it again. ^_^)

In that case, I like how you continue to elaborate on Alex's rebellious nature, @Europa.

I could try and write a post for the original Animorphers!

@Steggy, were you planning on writing a post?

If not, did any of the other original Animorphers want to post, or should I just work on one?

Sorry! I completely forgot. And I don't know if I'll be able to get a post up this weekend so someone else is more than welcome to post. It's been a busy week. :/

No worries, @Steggy. I've been quite busy myself.

My exams are finally done, so I'm less busy myself. The only pity is I could post right now, but it wouldn't accomplish much. XD

I can see to reading the original Animorphers in the mornings now, so that at least means I'll have stuff to read for this anyway.

@LeftyWriter I have a post in the workings right now, but the going is slow. I've gotten stuck writing a romantic scene. I've never been the best at that.

You could always ask someone to help look it over and provide suggestions. :P

I'm working on one. Finally know what I want to do for that scene I was stuck on thanks to some help from Lefty! It won't take long to finish.
