OMG I HAD 2 SHARE THESE VIDS!! If you can see them!
Here’s the Scribble, hope you like it…! See the Post If The Animals on Animal Jam Had Jobs Idea. This is a mixture of Erin Hunter’s Survivors and Warriors books, along with Animal Jam and fantasy of my own imagination.
One day Awesome Thecat sneaked into Sarepia Forest, and ran into a… “Pack?” Awesome questioned. “Your group is a wolf pack?”
The “pack” leader, Alpha (“meaning first,” they explained) growled in agreement. “Yes. Why do you question like so?”
“Uh… I was just wondering!” Awesome replied, then noticing an “expecting” she-wolf, asked, “What’s her name?”
“No more questions. But she’s Ceri, meaning love.”
“Ok… hey, you guys- free chat doesn’t let you say certain things! Wait… you guys are-” Awesome’s eyes widened- “Jamming without a player? But, that’s against the rules!”
“For obvious reasons, I can tell that you aren’t exactly following the rules either,” Alpha retorted.
“Eh, yeah, so I’m not exactly following the rules…” Awesome began to notice the unreleased items they were wearing. “But I think you guys are actually-“
“Rogue?” Alpha finished. “Ha, yeah. But, I can tell you’ve got some spunk in you… maybe you’d like to join us, at least for a while?” He had a sly smile on his face. She realized with amazement that none of the pack were wearing their name tags.
“Well…” Awesome trailed off, thinking of the possibilities. “I’m not sure yet…”
“You do realize that this is an offer we assure you to take lightly… There’s a lot of other Jammers raring to go rouge.”
“No, I think I’ll accept!” she blurted, then felt shocked at herself. I’m going rouge? Awesome thought. Wow, how I’ve changed…
“Good,” Alpha smiled. “Now follow us.”
Awesome Thecat followed the wolves until they shouldered through castle-high piercing thorn walls and entered through a portal,
( Even though the adventure portal closed down, a portal still was there)
which led to a den. Awesome clicked the username den tag (it read “LavaPack’s Territory”), but it didn’t lead to any results.
Alpha howled, the sound ringing throughout the camp and making puddles ripple. All wolves came padding out of little rooms (they called them “dens”, though they were tiny) and sat before Alpha (on what they called the Highrock). She decided to follow their lead, but as she drew nearer the wolves parted down the middle like a curtain being pulled aside to let in the view- only this view was an waiting Alpha.
“I gather you here now,” Alpha began, “to announce a new Packmate- Awesome Thecat!” All of LavaPack turned to get a glimpse of Awesome and she blushed brightly.
“She will follow ritual,” Alpha continued, “as our medicine wolf, Galen (meaning healer and calm) will explain to her.”
Galen padded up to Awesome and whispered a few sentences in her ear, and as he finished with a yip to Alpha the leader began to speak again.
“Awesome, do you promise to follow the Pack rules, even to the death?”
Awesome paused, took a deep breath and announced “I do.”
“Do you oath to be bound to your role in this Pack, even may it be punishment?” Alpha questioned according to tradition.
“Yes, I do.”
“Then I, Alpha (or Ulmar, meaning wolf), using my power of Leader over this Pack, now name you-” LavaPack held its breath- “Bleddyne, meaning wolf. Your rank in this Pack will be hunter and warrior, until either promotion, demotion or punishment.”
Every wolf in the Pack barked and howled Awesome’s new name. “Bleddyne (pronounced bled-din)! Bleddyne! Bleddyne…”
Bleddyne (feeling proud of her new name and position) tore off her name tag and tossed it to some playful apprentices, who gleefully chewed the hated thing to pieces. Many wolves approached her that night, including
Burn (a she-wolf, name meaning stream),
Todd (he-wolf, name meaning fox),
Wolfram (she-wolf, name meaning wolf raven),
Vikesh (he-wolf, name meaning moon),
Selwyn (he-wolf, name meaning wild),
Caleb (he-wolf, name meaning dog),
Chase (he-wolf, name meaning hunter),
Ciarane (she-wolf, name meaning small and black),
Clovis (he-wolf, name meaning warrior),
Conania (she-wolf, name meaning hound or wolf),
Devlin (he-wolf, name meaning fiercely brave),
Quinn (she-wolf, name meaning wise),
Peter (he-wolf, name meaning rock),
and last but not least- the Beta, Uri (she-wolf, name meaning light)!
Bleddyne felt like she was hit by a car (or “monster”, as she would now call it under the influence of a Pack), but managed to remember all of the names invested in her. She’d soon meet the pups, apprentices and elders, but for now she needed to sleep. Plus, there were the names of Alpha’s mate (Bleddyne guessed and found this true by watching his attitude around the she-wolf and her belly) Ceri (meaning love, Bleddyne remembered), and the medicine wolf Galen (meaning healer and calm, once again)… she began to feel dizzy and was escorted by a surprised Selwyn into the “warrior/hunter’s den”, and from there allowed herself to be led into a “nest”, as they introduced their beds.
In the morning, when Bleddyne awoke, she found herself in a very comfy nest, which in turn was placed neatly in a den. She began to get a weird feeling, but after shaking her head a couple times, Bleddyne’s memories of the previous day came flooding into her brain. She noticed that Selwyn, Burn and Wolfram’s nests were arranged next to hers, and she padded around them carefully while exiting the den.
Once in the clearing, which was ringed with a round of den entrances deep in rock (LavaPack was within a dip in a mountain, she observed) Bleddyne’s stomach growled hungrily (No, starvingly! she thought, the sound of her midsection being sonorous).
Bleddyne observed that the Pack camp must be in the upper right hand corner of the Animal Jam map (since it was a mountain range, and you can go to the Coral Canyons, Sarepia Forest, Mt. Shiveer, and Crystal Sands areas), and that you must be a Pack member to have access to that area.
Sure enough, as soon as Bleddyne came up with that thought,
UriBeta padded up to her and said, “I have something for you,”
Beta pulled out a satchel from somewhere Bleddyne couldn’t see and urged her to open it. When opened, Bleddyne drew out a long string of HTML.
“Huh?” she questioned. Beta explained that you place it on your map, exit the map, and then reopen it. “The Pack label should appear when you scroll over that area, along with it lighting up like any other section.”
Bleddyne tried it, and when it worked she felt proud that she was now a definite member of a Pack, though it was rouge. All the better, she thought and thanked Beta, repeating the action when the she-wolf handed her a mouse captured by that morning’s hunt.
That night Bleddyne had a dream that when her Heshouldvebeenthere account player logged on, a message popped up reading I’m sorry, this account’s wolf is no longer available as an error has occurred. Please accept the giraffe as your only current animal, and also this consolation gift of 1,000 Gems.
Bleddyne felt guilty for the next day but the feeling passed as she went on her first border patrol, which fended off stray Jammers hoping to hack their way into the rogue LavaPack button code. The following days consisted of meeting the rest of her Pack (including Alpha and Ceri’s new pups), hunting, patrolling, and just plain getting to fit in better. Not once did she think again of Eternal Thegiraffe, Enchanted Muddybeast, or any of her buddies. Instead Bleddyne spent her time getting more rouge and wild every hour that passed. Selwyn showed interest in her; she accepted his mate request one night. LavaPack was no longer on Animal Jam rules… it was a live Pack, pixel-created and online. But with the medicine cat Galen’s coding and hacking ability, Alpha and Beta frequently stated that they could actually get out of the tight little gadget screen and be off-screen, not as real, smelly wolves but as virtual wolves still. The Pack howled and yipped in agreement every time they mentioned that; even Bleddyne herself.
So Galen kept working; coding and hacking into how many systems. Bleddyne was just very glad that LavaPack wasn’t bent on taking over Animal Jam, and quite often spread that feeling around camp, which she was 99% sure her line of thinking was shared with everyone. The day would soon come, Alpha and Beta kept announcing… and we will be free.
You like it? 😀 1400-something words. 😉
I think that maybe if I tweaked and added to the beginning of this Scribble, not to mention edit what I already created, this could start to be something pretty good.
[…] Awesome Thecat howled under the effect of the wolfs’ “Play” icon. It’s a good thing that the howl isn’t actually audio, Awesome thought. Because I have a sore throat.
Finally, after two more hours of play (or “work”, as she would consider it), Awesome Thecat trudged to the user AJHQ’s den, where she entered a hidden portal leading to Animal Jam Headquarters the place. After that, Awesome went to her own den, offline. It was an unreleased cave den (she doubted it ever would be released), and quite cozy, in her opinion. A Greely’s Wardrobe den item lay against a wall, a large sofa was placed neatly atop a large yeti rug adorning the area near the black HDTV; which was playing the bonfire channel. Many other items filled the den, lining the star-covered walls and crushing the grass-patterned carpet, well past the nonmember 200 limit and even raising above the member 300 limit.
Awesome ripped her name tag off (man, that thing’s annoying, she thought) and tossed it aside. It fell over a hovering Portal Crystal den item. She plopped down on her black Mat den item and changed the TV channel to a shark-chase-fish channel. Awesome heard the Jam-a-Gram bell ring (another feature yet to be released online) and padded to the Mailbox den item. Inside was a letter from her sister, Enchanted Muddybeast (the online user was Doggydays19151). “How was work today?” it asked. Awesome sent her reply (“Ok, I guess. Boring as usual… you?”) and went to the Wardrobe. Greely’s own style of clothing was mingled with many other items, including rares, member items (Awesome could use them offline), and member rares. There, Awesome dumped the princess decal her user player “Heshouldvebeenthere” had adorned her with and exchanged it for a head flower, change of colors, Diamond-Encrusted Tail Armour, a Silver Glove, and a Pirate Sword.
“That’s more like it,” Awesome muttered and skimmed Enchanted’s reply to her JAG. “Today was horrible,” her sister’s letter groaned. “The Rare Item Monday clothing for today was a Rare Pirate Beard! Add that to my eye patch and…ugh. And my player bought NINE! I looked so bad (pronounced bah-ha-haad)!”
Awesome Thecat sent a sympathetic response to Enchanted and stretched, thinking aloud: “I wonder… what if user players actually knew we worked there? I mean, and they finally dressed us up the way we wanted to dress (Jamaa would certainly be WAY more fashionable… uck, she thought)? That would be awesome.”
Suddenly Eternal Thegiraffe, Awesome’s usermate (aka they are both controlled by the same user), burst through the door. “Ugh!” she cried, sitting down. “The user Heshouldvebeenthere’s player got put in a deep sleep I dunno HOW many times… annoying!!”
Awesome Thecat’s Icicle Lights den item suddenly began blinking on and off rapidly- the signal that she was needed! The human was logging on! “Oh, no! It’s back to work with me…,” Awesome emitted a small groan, quickly changed back into the princess “junk” and slapped on her name tag. She then pushed her paw down into the center of a Glitched Rug, and was immediately transferred to the user Heshouldvebeenthere as the Animal Jam page stopped loading (for the human).
Awesome obeyed the user for half an hour before being able to return to her den, now vacant of visitors. The refrigerator was empty as well. “Come on, Eternal!” Awesome growled under her breath, then plopped onto her giant sofa. She then imagined “Life Outside of AJ”… with no job! Freedom, and NO princess items… that’d be the LIFE! Awesome thought. It’s too bad we can’t just QUIT the job… but it’s permanent and it’s our duty. One Jammer, though… a long time ago, the user animal named Scammer invented Scamming. The human was in on a little of it, but when the player wasn’t around? Scammer took things into their own hands. Scamming brings all the FUN out of AJ and replaces it with anger and sadness. And Fmen122… oh, man. That Jammer actually ATTEMPTED to quit the job, but when they (he/she?) learned that it was IMPOSSIBLE…? Renegade with a capital “R”. Scams like crazy (Fmen122 actually WAS crazy, BTW), taken innocent Jammer accounts (returned with NO ITEMS LEFT)… it’s really bad. But anyway, I’ve got to stop thinking about this stuff.
Awesome shook herself from stiffness due to laying down for a while, and decided to visit AJSchool’s Den. Off-AJ, of course.
It was empty, so she just traveled to AJSchool’s den online.
Awesome got a strange, guilty feeling wearing different user clothes and Jamming without a player, but in an odd way she felt free. So she just pushed the feeling aside and ignored the Animal Jam Job rule #5: NEVER Jam without a player. It’s ok, she made herself think.
Awesome squeezed herself into a school role play. She met lots of new Jammers, but they were the type of Jammer that her user player wouldn’t like. So Awesome made a note to send them all buddy requests once they were off-aj.
After a while, she spotted a disguised moderator (that would report her, and she might be removed), so she quickly got offline and went back to her den. Awesome then JAGed the selected Jammers she wished to buddy and almost immediately got approved responses- once again, this didn’t count online! It was her own, personal buddy list.
What do ya think? 😀 I’m thinking of the title… It’s Not What It Seems- An Animal Jam Story. I don’t know, I just came up with that… 🙂
The users in this book are real. I am Heshouldvebeenthere, AJSchool actually does have a school-themed den, and my “sister” (actually my sister in real life), Doggydays19151, got rid of her wolf, Enchanted Muddybeast; though she has a giraffe, another animal I can’t remember, and does have an eye patch on the giraffe. I would almost never dress my wolf in princess items, though it could happen… happenings and events in this book are not real.
Here’s the Scribble for the Adventurous Little Girl idea… (and yes, I am now calling them Scribbles.)
[…] Stray now formed a scene in her mind where her dresser was a burning building and her bed was a teeny net.
“Coming in for the landing!” she shrieked, pummeling towards her pillows. FLOOF! Stray quickly sat up and whipped her glaring gaze towards an innocent-looking stuffed snake.
“You pushed me!” Stray accused, and attempted to grab the snake but a sudden gust of wind blew the innocent toy an inch or two away from its previous position. Stray’s grubby fingers closed on empty air, and she then changed her role play into a warning: “Alert! Alert! Tornado headin’ this way! Cover yer heads, it’ll be here in one minute!” Then, mistaking the length of a minute, she started counting down: “Ten, nine! Eight, seven, four, three! Six! One! Five! Two, IT’S HERE!”
Stray screamed excitedly and grabbed the snake, along with a toy mouse and a stuffed raccoon. She then dashed into her closet and announced: “Head count! Two, eight, one, three… wait! LULLABY IS MISSING!”
Stray sternly ordered the animals to “keep yerselves there, now”, then zipped back out into the open and dove under her bed, squirming deep and kicking madly. Assorted items flew everywhere. […]
That’s as far as I got, because then two of my younger sisters threatened me about “if I didn’t shut the light off right then”…
