so here’s a summary of recent bird roleplay events for anyone bored enough to care
earlier I shot a line of dialogue at a character because idk I like harassing characters, if you know me you know this. the line was the Awakening bit of Kingdom Hearts and idk the character kept responding so I kept going through the Awakening because fuck if I don’t have it memorized and now that character kind of is a keybearer because eventually Kit and I were like fuck it and just kept going
and now my bird is furthering a magic anon that turned him into a magical girl so he’s in a cute dress and he has a cute weapon and cat ears and we’re basically making it as ridiculous as possible
that’s been my day today
