Can I go after LZPianoGirl? Levi is going to be reluctant to go in, and most likely hang back and debate with himself for a while, and I'd really like to have that moment of character development with him.

I can get a draft of it sketched up and be fairly prompt so I don't hold anything up.
We were born to be amazing.

I think you are next after LZPianoGirl anyway. If we are still going by last week's order, that is.

Just so you guys know, I'm roughly basing the interior of the house off of this one:
Image

I know it's more of a 20s looking house, but I don't think a farmhouse in the middle of nowhere OK would be brand new. I was thinking not nessacarily the interior screamed "1940s," but perhaps there were papers or stuff that said 1943 on them. Also, I was thinking once they figure out its 1943 they maybe raid the house for clothes.

ALSOOO (im so sorry this is a lot) would any of your characters be familiar with piano brands? I'm adding a Chickering piano in my post, which stopped production in 1983. I was thinking if someone knew about it they could point that out (or if they knew how to determine the creation of the piano by the serial number).

OK, I finally posted. I'm sorry it's such a long post, but I had a lot of fun writing it for some reason. If I wrote a character wrong/got something historical inaccurate/just somethings wrong, please point it out and I'll change it!

I was thinking (I use that phrase way to much oml) each of the people find something that could prove that they're in 1943 and then maybe in the next round of posts they try to figure out what to do with the papers and car and then the collab posts.

also hello yes i have indeed started a full cast lineup drawing and no one can stop me

and its so funny that bo is like at least ten or so inches taller than everyone ,,, he just looks giant LOL

Edit: Also LZ I'm sorry this is such a late tiny little tweak but I don't think Bo would close the door on Levi, he'd leave the door open - two reasons for that: 1. Doesn't want Levi to feel stuck out there and 2. Easy way out if for some reason they need to bolt

What's this date/time look like for everyone? For me, it doesn't work b/c it's when I sleep, but maybe the rest of you could meet up! We could do two different collab sessions, too
