Devotional: Grandma’s Christmas Visit

December 17th, 2010

After you’ve heard “Grandma’s Christmas Visit,” check out this devotional thought. (If you haven’t heard the episode, check out the Media Player. You can also find a station in your area.)
Birthday Cake

By Ashley Padgett

Listening to “Grandmas Christmas Visit” made me think of some of my own family’s favorite Christmas traditions. On Christmas Day, my family always has a traditional Christmas dinner of…pizza. Why pizza? I don’t know. It’s not very Christmasy, but that’s what we do.

After pepperoni and sausage, my mom pulls out a Jesus Birthday Cake and we sing Happy Birthday to Jesus. Then we kids blow out the candles. Of course, we only have a few candles, since over 2000 is a few too many to fit on one cake!

Even though it’s a small tradition, it was always very special to me because it reminds me that—even with all the lights and presents and parties and food—the true reason for Christmas is the birth Jesus, the person who was there when the world was created and the one who can save us from our sins.

Traditions can create great family memories. And some traditions can help us remember why we celebrate! I think it’s great how Grandma Lucia’s tradition of ¬¬Las Posadas acted as a reminder of the true story of Christmas.

What are some Christmas traditions you celebrate with your family? Are there any traditions you learned from your grandparents? How did they celebrate Christmas differently when they were children than you do today? Tell us all about it here!

    Grandma’s Christmas Visit Review Part 1

    Well, it’s the final episode, an episode many of us fans dread. Waugh! No more new episodes! However, here is my review of this final episode…

    Well, it was good to have another christmas episode, as we haven’t had any since “Btv: Redeeming the Season”. This episode was fun and interesting, though there was nothing especially memorable about it. It’s an okay episode, but there was nothing that really made me go “Wow, that’s funny,” or laugh out loud…

    Grandma’s Christmas Visit Review Part 2

    There were also several parts that i found kind of disrespectful. When Matthew pointed out that Jesus wasn’t particularly “Awe-Some”, that kind of turned me off. Jesus WAS awesome, in every single way. Also, when Mrs. Ortega (or Mama Lucia, or Abuelita, or Nana, or Lucia) said “oh, i had a lot of practice with my husband…” it didn’t seem particularly respectful. This episode was a decent episode. There were some fun parts, like the game show. I have…

    Grandma’s Christmas Visit Review Part 3

    Seen “Let’s make a deal” before, and thought this was an interesting spoof of it. I liked how everything seemed to get bigger and bigger throughout the episode, and I thought Connie was funny yelling through her megaphone.

    This is definitely worth a listen and it’s a nice Christmas episode, but it’s not necessarily in my top 100. Enjoy it, and have fun listening to the final episode in Album 52.

    Album 52 Overall Review Part 1

    Well, when i first got hold of the album i was very excited, but there was still a part of me that was saying, “but it’s not the old odyssey”. I was expecting episodes of the same quality as “Take it from the Top” which wasn’t that great. I was pleasantly surprised to hear the better quality from sound designing to writing in this album, as it was much improved from 51. I still have my few things i didn’t like about the season, ll the new characters, too many…

  • Odysseyfan#1 on December 18th, 2010 - 9:44am


    Album 52 Overall Review part 2

    mystery episodes, too few kid characters, and also one nit-picky thing i didn’t like in Stage Fright. Emily has a cell phone?!? Really, she’s what, 12? Does she need a cell phone?

    Sorry… that’s a thing with me

    But, there are also some good things about this season, Wooton’s own radio show, Thankstaking Story, etc. Also, I watched the movie “Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town” last night, and there was a cranky old mayor in it named Burgermeister Meisterburger…

  • Odysseyfan#1 on December 18th, 2010 - 9:49am


    Album 52 Overall Review part 3

    So, that gave me a new perspective of Burgerlblitzer Blitzerburger. Anyway, though this album wasn’t as good as previous albums such as 50, 49, 48, etc. it was an okay album, and much improved over Album 51. I would definitely recommend buying this album.

  • Odysseyfan#1 on December 18th, 2010 - 9:59am


    So how do all twelve episodes stack up on my list? i went on to my itunes to see how many times i had listened to each episode, and I will list them here from most listens to fewest…

    - A Thankstaking Story – Listened to 19 times

    - Wooton’s Broken Pencil Show – 14

    -Square One – 12

    Opposite Day – 10

    Mystery of the Clock tower part 2 – 9

    Stage Fright – 9

    Fast as i can – 9

    The Owlnapping – 8

    Grandma’s Christmas Visit – 8

    Mystery of the Clock tower part 1 – 7

  • Odysseyfan#1 on December 18th, 2010 - 10:01am


    The Malted Milkball Falcon – 6

    An Agreeable nanny – 3

    What is my favorite episode? Wooton’s Broken Pencil Show

    What is my least favorite episode? Opposite Day

    One last thing i want to leave you with… a preview of album 53…

    It all beings when a small plane crashes under strange circumstances outside town. The mystery deepens when a

    backpack filled with money is found in the woods near Gower’s Field, outside of Odyssey. What does all of this have to do with the Green Ring…

  • Odysseyfan#1 on December 18th, 2010 - 10:01am


    …Conspiracy? Whit, Eugene, and Connie have to put together the clues before it’s too late to stop a worldwide conspiracy!

    Thanks for reading my reviews! Have a merry Christmas! See you next season!

    @ Odysseyfan#1
    How did you find out all the stuff about album 53???

  • An AIO fan on December 18th, 2010 - 3:04pm


    how do you know that stuff about album 53?Are you an actor for AIO or something?You sure do listen to the shows a lot.I would think that they would get boring after a while.
    To Oddyesy team:
    I didn’t really like this episode too much.LOTS of yelling.Even from Whit.And there wasn’t many lines for the kids.Connie was pretty annoying.But overall it wasn’t that bad.
    Can’t wait for album 53!

  • J.R.C on December 18th, 2010 - 3:09pm


    I can’t listen to it either! Would you please fix it if possible?

  • Joanna on December 19th, 2010 - 10:59pm


    Hi Ashley!

    LOVE the Christmas tradition of pizza and Birthday cake for Jesus! I absolutely adore it! And I think the Lord likes it too, because it’s got meaning and not one of those GO THROUGH THE MOTIONS things. That’s how the Lord wants us to thing of our relationship with Him! Fun. Enjoyable, Adventurous and filled with wonderful memories!

  • ari on December 20th, 2010 - 11:03am


    This episode was interesting. At least Abuelita didn’t make any inappropriate jokes. I think it was an okay finale for a not-so-disappointing album. It wasn’t as bad as I expected. Sorry if I sound like a mile of bad road; AIO just isn’t what it was. I suppose things get like this over time. ‘Tis sad.

  • SARAH a on December 20th, 2010 - 3:10pm


    This was a pretty good episode.could have been better…It could have been worse.

  • Odysseyfan#1 on December 20th, 2010 - 3:32pm


    @JRC, The overview of album 53 was in the album 52 case.

    @AN AIO FAN, As much as i would love to be an actor for Odyssey, I’m just a normal kid. I’m just a HUGE odyssey fan. I don’t really get bored of them. AIO is pretty much my one and only hobby.

    @HANNAH, Yeah, i do post a lot, and I’m not sure if that’s particularly good or not… I just love AIO! (No, I’m not offended. I don’t get offended easily)

  • Maura on December 20th, 2010 - 3:46pm


    I love album 52! Way to go odyssey team! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE give us a preview of album 53 the green ring conspiracy, I can’t wait! LOVE YOU ODYSSEY!!

    By the way EUGENE ROCKS!! (even if he is a little bit of a know it all!)

  • jack on December 20th, 2010 - 4:49pm


    This album was pretty good. Emily is my Definite favorite character. The Jones and Parker mysteries are awesome. I really wish Emily would be featured more. She`s my pick for the avery awards. Say, “Go Emily” if
    agree. Odyssey producers: please make the episodes more interesting. The Album 52 episodes in particular stayed
    in one scene too long. Don`t take this the wrong way, but Wooton`s broken Pencil show and opposite day were
    incredibly boring. Also, Barret`s old voice was better,&

  • jack on December 20th, 2010 - 4:55pm


    Don`t really like Olivia`s character or voice. Apologies
    to the actor. p.s. Matthew is great and I`m glad you`re
    featuring Jay, RYAN and Priscilla more. I didn`t think I would
    like these characters as much as I did the old, but I like them much, much more

  • Odyssyfan#2 on December 21st, 2010 - 10:41am


    Well that’s the end of the album[sniff]but there’s always next season. Since I don’t want to copy cat odyssyfan#1′s idea of pros and cons[which are awesome] I will give my reveiw the much longer way.

    The whole album overall was good. But there were deafenateley some silly if not plain wacko episodes[forgive me]. I did not like Opisite day at all. Stage fright wasn’t really good,I mean, it didn’t teach me anything[ was it supposed to]. :( But besides those…

  • Odyssyfan#2 on December 21st, 2010 - 10:43am


    I think it played out very well. Can’t wait till Album 53!! :) :) :) :)

  • Gabby on December 22nd, 2010 - 6:34pm


    I liked album 52 but it didn’t really teach me any lessons like the old odysseys and I agree with “an AIO fan” there was definitely too much yelling in this episode. Also, now I see Eva Parker gripping about her mom alot and I find that disrespectful and she always seems quick to say she’s sorry but it seems like she doesn’t really mean it. All in all this was an ok album i wouldn’t say it was good. (please don’t be offended AIO makers)

  • Whitehorse on December 22nd, 2010 - 10:40pm


    This episode was okay, but I miss the old Odyssey.But I LOVED A Thankstaking Story and Wooton’s Broken Pencil Show! They were the best ones in this album. I have only been a AIO fan for about a year, but I’m loving it more every day, and listen to the daily episodes every night. I pretty much agree with Odysseyfan#1, about pretty much everything they said.

  • Whitehorse on December 22nd, 2010 - 10:45pm


    And Odysseyfan#1, You do good reviews, I always like reading them. And I will be praying for you Michelle.

  • Stevie on January 7th, 2011 - 7:56pm


    Hey ya’ll just want to say a few little things. Some pointers here. For all of you who find the new Odyssey as something that is not as good as the old Odyssey think about this. Imagine if there was no Odyssey. Imagine if all of the people on A.I.O gave up after Paul died. Imagine if they said, “Oh well we lost our main actor who cares what the viewers think we’ll just STOP!” It would be a terrible world without our beloved Odyssey. We would be angry and we would be trying to scrape for any of the old albums. We wouldn’t care what would happen but we would just want to hear those incredible names again, Connie, Eugene, Wooton, and most of all Whit.
    Thankfully they did not stop, they did not give up hope. All of those people who work on Odyssey, they continued to make these radio dramas that we are proud to call Adventures in Odyssey. Please do not deny it, you all know that ya’ll would hate it if there was no Odyssey in the world. Ya’ll know that deep down you are glad that Odyssey is still here.
    If you think about it this way, you learn appreciate Odyssey a lot. I now notice that I love Odyssey much more. I realize that I like this new Odyssey. I love Emily Jones, and Priscilla, and everyone else. I don’t complain about Pete or anyone else. Sure I’d say that they could start doing better themes, more Bible based, and more Imagination Station ones. But now I realized from reading some posts that we all complain a bit too much. I don’t mean to be harsh. But I feel bad for A.I.O. with all of the gripping and groaning we do. I would just like for ya’ll to think about this.
    Goal: Try to say something positive with each post you post :D :P ? ;) and when you give CONSTRUCTIVE critism(s.p) don’t try to make it mean, then again I might be being mean by saying all of this, and just love Odyssey for what it is!
    If you have read this PLEASE say that you have. If I’m being a little harsh let me know please!
    Special thanks to KID who first brought up the idea about what would happen if Whit died, to Odyssey for inspiring me to do the right thing and always believing, and to God my father who taught me to breathe and trust, who always gives me hope, who always is there for me, who I love.
    Stevie C. L. a big, no HUGE fan of Odyssey!

    You should make Jason get married because he has been engaged……and you should also make Eugene and Katrina have a baby I mean how long have they been married and they don’t have any kids yet and then Eugene wouldn’t be the last of a long line if you make them have a boy…… you also need to make Mitch come back from Budapest and marry Connie because Connie really needs to get married.

    Fans and Friends of Odyssey, Greetings and Salutations! I have just returned from a practice inwhich we use a round sphere and pass it up and down the rectagular floor that has lines painted to mark the perimeter and bountries. I have managed to launch that sphere into the invisible force around us which keeps us living and into the watcha call net and scor a watcha call three pointer. I am a watcha call it a lover of the watcha call sport. I like the watcha call feelin of watcha call running.

    Here we go…

    …“Tanni! Tanni, wake up!”
    It’s Mason’s voice calling me, and I struggle to answer. But my mouth feels dry, and I can’t move.
    “Tanni, wake up! Please!”
    I feel his hand shaking my shoulder. I roll a little, feeling the bounce of a moving vehicle, and realize I’m in the truck. I failed to get free, and I’m still a prisoner.
    “Tanni!” He brushes my hair back from my face and rubs my forehead. I groan, just enough to let him know I’m awake. He sighs with relief.
    “I thought you were a goner there.”
    I give a half-smile and whisper, “I thought I was a goner, too.”

  • ftu on December 16th, 2012 - 12:58pm


    We fall silent, listening to the hum of the wheels against the pavement and the whistle of the wind outside. We’re moving pretty fast, from what I can tell. I wonder where we’re going and what’s going to happen to us. I feel bad for getting Mason into this. It’s me Marshall wanted; Mason is just a hanger-on, in a sense.
    A shiver runs through me as I recall the events of the pass few hours. I had no idea things were going to get this bad. I wonder what Lloyd and Jonas are going to think when I don’t show up; and the other loaders at the dock are going to know something’s up.

  • ftu on December 16th, 2012 - 12:58pm


    I sigh softly. Naomi will know something, I’m sure of it. She’ll get the others to help, and they’ll find us eventually. I just hope eventually is long enough.
    “How long have I been out?”
    He sighs. “Thirty minutes, maybe an hour. Not long.”
    “That means Ben and Ally will be looking for me now,” I say quietly.
    “Don’t say that, Tanni. It’ll make you cry.”
    “I’m already crying,” I sniff. I realize my hand is stinging from the cuts, and there’s a sharp pain in my side. I don’t feel like the strong one at all right now, with tears starting to run down my cheeks and my throat closing up.
    “Tanni, don’t.” Mason squeezes my shoulder. “We’ll be okay.”
    “Mason, how can you say that?” I choke out. “We’ve been kidnapped by one of our own—by a human—and now we’re heading to who-knows-where—and—and—” my voice breaks entirely and I turn my face away, letting the tears come. I don’t hide them from Mason, and even if I wanted to, I couldn’t. My head is laying in his lap, and he gently brushes my hair back again and lets me cry.

  • ftu on December 16th, 2012 - 12:59pm


    When I calm down, I wipe my eyes and sit up. The light outside the window is slowly fading. This is when I’d be sitting on the roof, watching the Unknown. This is when I’d be looking forward to meeting with the pack at Naomi’s and joking around. Now none of that is going to happen.
    “Mason, we have to get out of here!” I bolt to my feet and stumble from the swaying movement of the truck.
    “Tanni, calm down.” He stands and steadies me. “We’re gonna get out of here. Somehow.”
    I don’t think so, but I nod anyway. We sit down with our backs to the wall, swaying and bouncing with the movement of the vehicle. We’re going pretty fast, I realize. Wherever we’re headed, we’re bound to be there soon.

  • ftu on December 16th, 2012 - 12:59pm


    “I wonder where we are right now,” I say, gingerly inspecting my cut-up hand. The bleeding’s stopped, but it still hurts. I wonder if there’s glass imbedded in it. Ouch.
    “We’ve been moving in the circles. I think we’re almost out of Slum 14#, on the inner side.” Mason brushes curly blond hair out of his eyes.
    “That would be…Slum 4#,” I mentally calculate. “Doesn’t Slum 4# border Wandrevir?”
    “The capitol? I hope we aren’t going there!” he exclaims.
    I know what he means. Out in a border-slum, we hear weird stories about Wandrevir. It’s heavily populated by Unba, unlike any of the slums. And Unba don’t like humans in their city. If we’re going there—there’s bad news ahead.

  • ftu on December 16th, 2012 - 12:59pm


    “Your hand is all bloody,” Mason points out.
    I nod, grimacing a little. “It hurts like the ices. I hope there’s somewhere I can bandage it up soon.”
    “Here.” He rips some of his shirt tail off and wraps it around and around the cuts, snug but not tight. “That should help it some.”
    “Thanks.” I smile at him, but I don’t feel it. I feel depressed instead. “We have to get out of here.”
    “I know.” He leans back and closes his eyes. “But there’s no way to do it now.”
    “So we sleep on it?” I ask, almost not believing my ears.
    “Look at it this way,” he says. “We’ll need the strength—wherever we’re headed.”
    “Yeah, right.” I lean back and close my eyes. We rest our heads against each other and resign ourselves to the jolt and bounce of the truck against our bones. I don’t think I’m tired, but after a while the darkening around me takes effect and I drop off.

  • ftu on December 16th, 2012 - 1:01pm


    Mason moves to sit next to me. “Tanni, do you think we’re going to die?” he asks point-blank.
    I flinch. “Why do you wanna know that?”
    “Because—I think I know where we’re going.”
    “I heard rumors about stuff like this happening,” he begins cautiously. “People just don’t disappear and no one notices. The girl who lived across from my aunt’s, vanished one day. Her parents, too. I haven’t seem them since. I asked my aunt, but she said there were some things not worth repeating about the Unba. Now I wish I had kept asking. And there were others…” his voice trails off.

  • ftu on December 16th, 2012 - 1:02pm


    I lean back against the cold metal of the truck. Outside, the sky is dark, about 7 o’clock, I figure. We’ve been in here for three hours. The pack will know something is wrong—they’ll be looking for me and Mason. Lloyd and Jonas are probably frantic by now. But the slum gates are going to close soon. I wonder how they will get past those to continue the search.
    “We’re slowing down,” Mason says quietly. We both hop up and peer out the window, trying to figure out where we are. Bright street lights and swooping hover cars and chariots meet our eyes. It’s a big city, we can tell.
    A city?
    “Wandrevir,” we both say slowly, fear chilling our bones.
    “It’s easy to get lost in a big city,” I say. “Who would notice if we just…disappeared?
    “We already have,” he responds. “No one will know where we are.”

  • ftu on December 16th, 2012 - 1:02pm


    I understand and sigh. But I can’t say anything. What’s there to say that hasn’t already been said? I sit down again, but Mason remains at the window. He’s taking everything in; and that gives me an idea.
    “When they open the door to get us, you should run for it.”
    He turns to look at me. “And go where?”
    “Lose yourself. Try to get back home. Tell the others.”
    “But—what about you?” He sits down next to me.
    “I don’t know. But it’s better than both of us disappearing without a trace. At least you can tell them what happened to me.”
    “No, I’m not leaving you,” he states firmly. “You don’t know what could happen to you here. What Marshall could do to you.”
    “Mason, if both of us are gone, we have no hope. But if you go and tell the others, there’s a chance you could come back for me.”
    “I don’t take chances.” He looks me in the eye. “I’m staying with you, Tannith Drifess. No matter what happens, I’m going to protect you.”

  • ftu on December 16th, 2012 - 1:03pm


    I scowl. I want him to go back. But deep inside, I’m relieved he won’t. So I smile and wrap an arm around his shoulder and squeeze him. He blushes and pulls away and we laugh, a little shyly, but knowing that we’re good friends.
    We both crowd back to the window, watching the traffic go by. I stare in awe at the chariots, flying scooters I’ve heard of but never before seen. Mason is excited about the bright streets-lights and tall sky-scrapers. Nothing like them exist in the slums. For a moment, we almost forget we’re prisoners of the Unba, on our way to an unknown destination.

  • ftu on January 5th, 2013 - 7:10pm


    This paragraph goes between 12:59pm and 1:01pm: Even in my dreams, I feel the urgency to free myself. I’m running through the streets of Slum 22#. The sky is dark overhead, but the streets are red-lit. Sirens are wailing in the background; Unba sirens, which means the patrols are on extra duty. They’re looking for me, I know. I want to get to my building and hide on the roof. As I run, I see Lloyd and Jonas burst from a doorway, pursued by soldiers. I shout for them to join me, but they’re grabbed and hauled away. I suddenly realize I am on my rooftop, looking down into the street and watching. More soldiers are climbing up the fire-escape, shooting blue electricity from their guns (this is a dream, after all). I hear Ben and Ally calling for me to rescue them from the fire in our apartment, because the A/C broke down. When I try to move, my feet feel frozen to the ground. I watch in horror as the soldiers pour onto the roof, surrounding me. But at the last moment, as their hands grab me and start to pull me away, I look off toward the Unknown. And there, barely visible at the edge of the horizon, is my dad. He’s running toward me. Hope surges through me.

  • ftu on January 5th, 2013 - 7:11pm


    This paragraph goes between 12:59pm and 1:01pm: I bolt up, shouting, “Dad!”
    The rumble of the truck answers me.
    It’s just a dream.
    I sink down, still feeling the hope and adrenaline from my dream. Next to me, Mason is laying on his back, staring up at the roof. He looks at me sympathetically.
    “Just a dream,” I mumble, rubbing my eyes. Depression replaces my hope.
    “Yeah, I know.” He sits up and stretches. “I dreamed my parents were still alive and that my dad bashed through the back of the truck.”
    Then I sigh. “I just hope Naomi and the others figure things out soon. Maybe they’re already on their way to help us.”

  • ftu on January 5th, 2013 - 7:12pm


    We plunge suddenly into darkness and the truck rattles violently. For a moment, I’m afraid we’re going to shake apart. Then we break into the light again, a dim, dreary kind of electric light. The truck stops and the engine cuts out. We realize with thumping hearts that we’ve arrived at—wherever it is. Some place that I have the distinct feeling I’m going to want to run away from before I even get inside.
    We instinctively back away from the door as footsteps approach. My uninjured hand finds it’s way into Mason’s. He’s shaking with fear, I can tell. My own body is trembling, my legs and arms columns of jelly. We have no way of knowing what’s ahead for us.
    The door is yanked open and bright light pours in. I wince back and shield my eyes. Marshall is standing in front of us. Behind him, several men and one woman are waiting.
    “Come on, you two, time to get moving,” Marshall says.

  • ftu on January 5th, 2013 - 7:12pm


    Mason and I step forward as one, our hands tightly clasped together. Marshall grabs my other hand, the injured one, and yanks us out. I stifle a cry of pain as my feet hit the hard concrete below. Mason stumbles but I keep him from falling. We’re feeling very vulnerable at this point. I give our surroundings a frightened glance; we’re standing in a wide courtyard with night sky above us. Lights are shining in our faces. There is a building in front of us, and around us stand the other people, Unba in civilian uniforms. One of them totes a pistol, but they are otherwise unarmed. I get an uneasy feeling from those looks on their faces.

  • ftu on January 5th, 2013 - 7:12pm


    “The new shipments?” The woman looks at us critically. “I thought we were getting only the girl.”
    “The boy saw too much,” Marshall explains. “Make sure he’s finished.”
    “I see.” The man with the pistol nods. “Well, get them into the compound. You know the routine.” He motions to his cohorts, who step forward. The woman grabs me and a man grabs Mason. They pull us apart and keep our arms behind us. My fingers throb from the tight grip.
    “Oh, by the way, a little extra for your trouble,” the armed man says to Marshall. He hands him a small case. “Don’t spend it all in one place.”
    “No worries,” Marshall smiles. Then he looks at me. “Enjoy yourself here, Tanni. It might be the last time you do.”
    “You’re not getting away with this,” I say, surprised by my own boldness.
    He laughs. “Prove it and I’ll believe it.” He walks to the truck and gets in. It drives away, leaving Mason and I completely alone with the Unba. No one can stop what they’re going to do to us now.

  • ftu on January 5th, 2013 - 7:13pm


    I look over at Mason. His eyes are wide with fear. I know I look the same way. Blood is pounding through my head and wrists, trembling in my fingertips. My head is light and I feel like throwing up. I hope I don’t; getting it all over a Unba would be a really bad idea. Second thought…
    No time for that. The woman, whose name-badge reads Sharein, has a firm grip on my arm as she drags me over to the building and inside. I barely catch a glimpse of a long, low, dark room with lots of equipment in it before I find myself at the end, where several desks and computer terminals are set up.
    “Two in just now,” Sharein says to the girl sitting behind one of the desks. The girl, about 17, looks up. I gasp. She’s stunningly beautiful; her eyes are blue, her hair is dark red, and her face highlighted by an intelligence that belies her age. Without looking at me, she rattles off a list of questions.

  • ftu on January 5th, 2013 - 7:13pm


    “Full name? Date of birth? Height and weight? Slum of origin?”
    “Tannith Emma Drifess, I turned 15 on May 3rd of this year, I’m 5 feet 4 inches and I weigh 115 pounds. And I’m from Slum 22#.”
    She looks up suddenly, her face tinging a slight pink. Her expression shows a slight amount of actual interest; more than most Unba show, anyway.
    “Slum 22#? Bordering the Unknown?”
    “Yes.” I shift my weight nervously, wondering why all the questions? What is this place, anyway? A prison? A school?

  • ftu on January 5th, 2013 - 7:13pm


    Her features narrow. “Typical border idget,” she mumbles to herself. Then she jerks her head toward a door behind her. “Get her checked out. We don’t want her passing out on the point. And,” her eyes stop at my cloth-wrapped hand, “patch her up. Top physical condition absolutely necessary.”
    With those cryptic words buzzing through my head, Sharein jerks me into the other room. It’s small, about the size of my bedroom, with a body-scanner in one corner, a tray of instruments, and all the look of an examine room.

  • ftu on January 5th, 2013 - 7:13pm


    “Up here,” Sharein directs, and I step onto the circular stand. She quickly goes through an examination, typing everything in on an electronic data-pad. Meanwhile, lights and buttons are flickering on the display panel opposite me. A screen shows the skeletal system of my body, highlighting the hand with the glass in it. Sharein notes it with a whistle.
    “Cutting up, I see,” she remarks snidely. “Put your hand here.” She pulls a tray with a blinking surface over. It looks like one of those new safety-removal outlets that Jonas talked about last week.

  • ftu on January 5th, 2013 - 7:14pm


    I place my hand on the flat metallic tray, and watch as the glass inside my hand is melted and sucked out, leaving no marks. My hand tingles a little, but is otherwise unaffected.
    “Now put these on,” Sharein orders, pulling some clothes out of a locker.
    Reluctantly, I strip off my normal clothes and slip into the dark red jumper. The long sleeves fit me perfectly, and the collar is snug around my neck. I slip into shiny black boots, tucking my pant-legs into the flexible leather. Then Sharein pulls the rubber-band from my hair and places me in a chair.

  • ftu on January 5th, 2013 - 7:14pm


    “What are you doing?” I ask, startled into speech for once.
    “Cutting your hair,” she says, eying the red strands with a scowl. “I’ve never seen a human with that color before. Not a half-breed, I hope,” she smirks.
    “No!” I shout, but not at the half-breed comment. “You can’t cut my hair! I like it long!” I jump up and instantly get shoved back down.
    “Sit down, idget,” Sharein says tersely. “It’ll grow back.” She flicks a switch on the control panel and the hair-cutting appliance opens from the wall, blades already grinding. I flinch at the sound but keep silent as my waist-length hair is shortened to just above my shoulders. Sharein pulls it back into a tight braid and reties it.
    “Perfect,” she says, adding with a scoff, “If anything about you humans can be perfect, that is.”

  • ftu on January 5th, 2013 - 7:14pm


    I look at myself in the shiny metal of the wall. I feel like crying. It’s silly, I know, but I hate the way I look. Short hair! My dad—and Jonas—always said they liked my hair the way it was. Now they won’t!
    “Stop blubbering.” Sharein pulls my arm. “Get into the scanner. Let’s see if you’re really the helpless little girl you act like.”
    I wasn’t crying, I think to myself, but I ignore her comment and step into the metal tube. It’s open on both ends, and there’s a little rolling belt that takes you through it. Sharein turns the belt on and I slide through. The machine makes a buzzing noise at one point.
    “What have we here?” I hear her voice from outside. “Oho, a necklace? Family heirloom, I’ll bet. Take it off and hand it out.”

  • ftu on January 5th, 2013 - 7:15pm


    I reach inside my collar and undo the metal clasp. It’s my mother’s, the only one I have of her’s. I wonder what Sharein will do with it. I don’t think I want to find out.
    The belt pushes me out the other end, where she’s standing. I’m holding the necklace in one hand, reaching out to give it to her.

  • Yelsew on January 9th, 2013 - 9:23am

    Suddenly, I swing the chain around and bring the pendant, a pebble-sized ruby, against her face with a smack. She’s taken off-guard by the impact and stumbles back a step. That’s all the time I need. I lunge past the circular stand, trip over a cable, and slam against the door. My hands grab the handle and yank, but just then I feel hands grabbing me back.

  • ftu on January 11th, 2013 - 6:09pm


    “Oh, no, you won’t,” Sharein hisses. A sharp pain shoots through me and I scream. I squirm around to see an odd-shaped, pen-like object in her hand. A stun-gun, like Marshall’s.

  • ftu on January 11th, 2013 - 6:09pm


    “Stop, please,” I beg. She applies the stun several more times, jerking my body with its sharp current. I scream, but not loudly. My throat is closing up and my limbs tingle. I can’t move. When she finishes, I’m paralyzed, unable to move or even cry.

  • ftu on January 11th, 2013 - 6:09pm


    Sharein laughs. “I told you, Tannith. If you don’t do what we say, you get zapped. And even if you do—well—you’ll see.” She laughs again and yanks me to my feet. I’d scream, but I can’t find my voice.
    “Let’s get going, human.” She shoves me out the door. I take one last look at my mother’s necklace, lying unnoticed on the floor. The ruby pendant is shattered.

  • ftu on January 11th, 2013 - 6:10pm

    I slowly come awake, opening my eyes with a hope that I’ll see something that reminds me of home.
    The ceiling is a foot from my nose; it’s a gray, cracked, concrete ceiling. I wince, remembering the events of last night, hoping and praying it’s just all a dream.
    But it isn’t. With a sigh, I roll onto my side and stare miserably at the girl across the aisle from me.
    I’m in a long, high room. It’s dark, but the kind of dark like the light is just beyond a curtained window. There are no windows here. Only rows and rows of metal three-stack bunks and a girl on each mattress. They’re hard as rocks, but I barely feel it. My arms and legs still are numb from last night.
    Last night. What a nightmare.

  • ftu on February 5th, 2013 - 2:39pm


    After Sharein dragged me out of the examination room, she took me through another door in the main room to a long hallway. This led to a maze of hallways, lifts, security checkpoints, and more scanners. I was so dazed I barely remember it now. When we reached this bunk room, she pushed me through the door, said “Row 7 on left, top bunk,” and then left me. I was too tired to even think about escaping, so I followed her directions and climbed up. Everyone else was asleep by then, though I think I woke up sometime last night when another girl came in.

  • ftu on February 6th, 2013 - 6:41pm


    I wonder where Mason is. Is he stuck in a room with a bunch of other guys? Marshall said something about finishing him. Does he mean killing him? I wouldn’t put it past these Unba. They have no respect for life, human or otherwise. It’s not something I like to think about, but now, lying all alone, kidnapped and miles from home, I begin to wish I had learned more about the Unba and what they do. It might have helped me steer clear of this.

  • ftu on February 7th, 2013 - 2:53pm


    An alarm suddenly sounds. Lights flick on, blinding me for a second.
    “Wake-up call, all human scum get their crummy existences out’o bed!” the girl beneath me hollers out. The room descends into a whirl of commotion as everyone jumps up (several whacking their heads on the ceiling) and roll off their bunks. Everyone is talking, making my head ache with the chatter. I wait until my two bunk-mates move off, then climb stiffly down and stretch my limbs. I peer into the aisle and nearly get run-over by a heavy-set girl as she dashes past. What’s the rush, I wonder. I look both ways, then step out and follow her. Seems everyone’s gathering at the further end of the room, opposite where I came in. There’s a large group of girls lined up in front of a door on one side, with several more cowering on the other side. I come up just in time to hear—
    “If you don’t want to get beat-up, don’t step over the lines.”

  • ftu on February 8th, 2013 - 6:31pm


    Then they all look at me with surprised expressions. I stop, uncertain what’s going on.
    “So, we have a black-list prospect in our midst.” The girl who was talking earlier steps forward and looks me up and down. “What’s your name?”
    “Tannith.” I look her in the eye. “Who are you?” She’s a human, so I’m not afraid of her. Besides, she’s about Naomi’s size. I could take her on if she attacked me, which I hope she won’t. Funny I now think about stuff like that. Being with the Unba will do that to you.
    “Huh. Not the usual scum the Unba pick up,” she says with a toss of her head. “I’m Britt. I’m the leader here, and you’ll do what I say. If you don’t—” she draws a finger across her throat. I swallow hard and nod. Picture gotten.

  • ftu on February 12th, 2013 - 7:51pm


    “For all you newcomers,” she nods to me and the few others, “you’re in a Unba prison—or training school, take your pick.” She talks in a slightly bored voice like she’s teaching a group of five-year-olds. “They’ve never told us the name, but crazy people like us make our own.” She pauses for effect and gives a mock bow. “Welcome to the Loony Bin of Unba Rejects…or perhaps you’d prefer—Bloody Asylum.”
    “Tell her what it means,” a spiteful voice calls from the crowd.
    Britt looks nervous for a second, then quickly gives a rough laugh. “She’ll find out soon enough. Now get in line. It’s time to head out.”

  • ftu on February 18th, 2013 - 6:27pm


    The little group of newcomers, me included, hurriedly line up. Britt walks down the row and pushes some of the unruly girls into rigid attention. I’m on the end, and when she reaches me, she stops.
    “Tannith Drifess?”
    “You know my last name?” I ask, surprised.
    “Yeah.” She glances around, suddenly nervous, her voice near a whisper. “Look, just watch yourself, got it? You made a major mistake back there: arriving late to roll-call. They’re watching all the time.”
    “Is that what you meant by black-list?” I ask, equally low in voice.
    “Part of it.” She licks her lips and I realize how pale her face is under some faint scars. “All right, now move out,” she says loudly. She can switch from nervous to tough in a second. With hands on her hips, she says, “Late-comers won’t get breakfast. So move it!” These last words are punctuated by shoving me so that I ram into the back of the girl in front of me. Britt walks back up the line, shouting and threatening as everyone moves out the doors and down a hallway.

  • ftu on February 19th, 2013 - 8:38pm


    I look around and see security cameras lining the walls. This place has more surveillance than I’ve ever seen before. It is a prison, as Britt said. She scares me. One minute trying to help, the next treating me like the dirt-bag all the Unba think I am. Just what’s up with her? I try not to think about it. Instead, I focus on how Jonas and Naomi are going to break me out of here soon. They will, I know it. With Lloyd helping them, I’m not going to be in here much longer.

  • ftu on March 1st, 2013 - 6:33pm


    My thoughts disappear as we march into a cafeteria, like the kind in a normal school. There are metal tables with benches lining the room all the way to the end, which has another door. Along one side of the room is a buffet with filled trays. We all file past and take one, then find the next empty seat at a table and sit down. I feel starved; I didn’t get supper last night, and being scared always makes me hungry. Forget scared; I’m terrified! All the stuff Britt said back in the bunk room keeps running through my head. Bloody Asylum—my blood is starting to pump like crazy through my veins.
    I look down the line of girls. All of them are dressed like me, in red jumpers with short hair braided back. Short hair! I fell like crying again when I think of my haircut last night. Silly, I know, but—

    “Hey, move over, half-breed.”
    The voice jolts me out of my thoughts. I look up to see Britt standing over me, tray in hand. She’s scowling, so I quickly scoot over. She sits down, but before she can say anything, I blurt out, “I’m not a half-breed.”
    She gives me a look and says sarcastically, “Haven’t you heard that it’s practically unheard-of for humans to have red hair?”
    “I can’t help! My dad was red-haired. It’s a family thing!” I feel defensive now. “Look, just because I don’t look like a human doesn’t mean I’m not one!”
    I didn’t know my voice could carry so far. All the girls at the nearby tables turn and look at me. I blush blood-red at their stares. I wish I hadn’t said anything.
    “Black-list prospect,” someone snorts, and everyone laughs. Britt frowns.
    “Lay off her,” she snaps. “She’ll get what’s coming later.”

  • ftu on March 20th, 2013 - 2:04pm


    I don’t think Britt likes me very much, but it’s obvious that the other girls annoy her as well. I have to find out what they mean by “black-list prospect”. So I turn to the girl on my other side. She’s still staring at me, mouth open. I blush again, but this time I feel angry.
    “What’s so big about being a black-list prospect?” I ask.
    Her mouth moves, but she seems to have trouble getting sound out. Her eyes are getting bigger and bigger, and finally out comes a thin, squeaky voice. “You’re—you’re Tannith Drifess, aren’t you?”
    I stare at her. “How do you know me?”
    “I’m Shea—from Mason’s building—remember?”
    “What? Shea? You mean” —I gulp— “you’re the one who disappeared? Yes, I remember you now! But that was years ago. How’d you end up here?”
    “Same as you, I guess,” Shea says. Her voice is starting to sound more normal now. “I didn’t recognize you for a minute. But when you said about your dad being red-haired—I remembered.”

  • Flyingrider on October 9th, 2013 - 8:50am


    Hey anyone in the Penny fan club out there? Also anybody suggest any couples? Penny and Wooton Bassett. Emily and Matthew Parker.

  • Superman on October 9th, 2013 - 9:36am


    @ Flyingrider can i be part of your fan club?I am a huge fan of penny and agree that she should marry Wooton,but i think Emily and Buck Oliver make a better couple than her and Matthew.I think that Emily and Matthew make good friends,but not a good couple.

  • Flyingrider on October 9th, 2013 - 12:51pm


    @SUPERMAN I am happy to invite you to my fan club! Tell your other buddies about this if they like Penny. I would love to be buddies or PALS! I forgot about Buck. Matthew should be married to her though because it would be weird for them to own an agency and not be married. Thats my opinion.

  • Flyingrider on October 9th, 2013 - 12:59pm


    @SUPERMAN do you want the trivia link? iF YOU DO LET ME KNOW and i will give you the link but dont tell anyone else. I want them to fulfill the 10 people interested before i give the link away.

  • Count dooku on October 10th, 2013 - 9:35am


    can I be in the fan club? I think Connie and jimmy Barclay should get married. P.s super mans so u could give me the link :lol:

  • Count dooku on October 10th, 2013 - 9:46am

  • superman on October 10th, 2013 - 10:19am


    @ Flyingrider Sure i’ll take the trivia link BTW my little brother (count dooku) Wanted me to ask you if you could give him the trivia link.Are there any more members to this fan club or is it just the two of us?

  • superman on October 10th, 2013 - 10:21am


    @ Flyingrider never mind on giving the link to count dooku.I just know saw your last post on here so I’ll just tell him that he needs to tell you he’s interested.

  • uselessfacts on October 11th, 2013 - 9:14am

  • Superman on October 11th, 2013 - 2:17pm


    @ uselessfacts I’m okay if you join and since flyingrider hasn’t been on here for the past couple of days.So what is your favorite AIO episode with penny in it?Mine is probably “childish things”

  • Flyingrider on October 11th, 2013 - 3:03pm


    My link is not to go outside the Penny club! Like not posted on the new comments where it is. Put this link into the search space at the top of the screen”The Grand Design Avery Awards Voting” and it should be at the top (the rest of the link that you will click on is” plus Ask the Producers” dont type that in because that link wont come up i know it is weird!) Count Dooku and Uselessfacts you can be in the fan club!You can also come to the trivia page.

  • Flyingrider on October 14th, 2013 - 9:13am


    @ USELESSFACTS you can be in the fan club!

  • stormshadow on October 14th, 2013 - 9:35am


    @flyingrider i know im not a member of the penny club but josi told me that plot is about jeff telling connie about hid adventures but penny could be in it

  • Flyingrider on October 14th, 2013 - 10:03am


    Count Dooku Do you want a blank fan club site for the Shona one? I found a whole bunch and wasnt sure if you were interested.

  • stormshadow on October 14th, 2013 - 5:07pm


    @flyingrider I already found one with only twelve comments on it I posted the link on the acts webcast.

  • superman on October 15th, 2013 - 8:46am


    I really want to hear the pilot!! one of my friends who owns the album told me that is about Jeff telling Connie about his missionary travels.

  • superman on October 15th, 2013 - 9:49am

  • Flyingrider on October 16th, 2013 - 2:26pm


    Superman Lets think of our favorite episode with penny in it. Can you think of anybody who would make a good couple/? Superman you are vice president if you want!

  • sUPERMAN on October 16th, 2013 - 3:24pm


    @FLYINGRIDER I think they need to bring back Monica stone and have Jason marry her.I think Barret And Priscilla make a good couple.My favorite episode with Penny in it is a toe between happy hunting and childish things.Thanks i’d love to be vice president!!Are we gonna vote on who gets in the club or just anyone that wants to be in the club can join?

  • Flyingrider on October 17th, 2013 - 2:53pm


    Well SUPERMAN I wont not let someone in if they want to join but the only requirement is that they like penny alot

  • Flyingrider on October 18th, 2013 - 9:26am


    My Predictions on Penny
    Wooton and Penny will get married by
    album 62.
    Penny will be Connies brides maid.

  • Flyingrider on October 18th, 2013 - 9:28am


    @ SUPERMAN Sounds like you are(according to STORSHADOW) having fun babysitting.

  • Flyingrider on October 18th, 2013 - 9:30am


    What food is Penny alergic to?

  • Flyingrider on October 18th, 2013 - 9:51am


    Sorry about my prediction conny will be pennys brides maid

  • Stormshadow on October 18th, 2013 - 1:24pm


    @flyingrider superman probably won’t answer you he likes to play with little kids and I do not so I can get on the computer while he is playing with her

  • Stormshadow on October 18th, 2013 - 1:25pm


    Flyingrider salmon!

  • superman on October 18th, 2013 - 8:38pm


    @FLYINGRIDER a little bit of both,I wish i could have time to draw though,With my two year old cousin around that’s not a good idea because she would get into my drawing stuff.I am also super tired and don’t have time to post on here.(I am super tired because she never runs out of energy so i have to constantly play with her).They leave on sunday though,so i should be back to posting regularly by then.

  • Flyingrider on October 19th, 2013 - 6:48am


    @STORMSHADOW You are correct! If you have any trivia questions please post them if they are about penny if not put them on the trivia site. That goes for everyone

  • Stormshaodw on October 19th, 2013 - 9:31am


    @flyingrider I will have trivia questions by at the latest Thursday. Do you want bible trivia questions? If you do I know a lot of bible trivia (not as much as superman though) also I never said we were having fun not that I’m complaining but having a two year old sleeping in your room and having to stay in your brothers room and not being able to watch the shows I like cuz there to scary for a two year old can get annoying but all in all I guess it’s been an okay weekend :) :cool:

  • Flyingrider on October 21st, 2013 - 9:19am


    I dont mind playing with little kids either but when “big kids” are there i really like hanging with them. ( but if you wanna know a secret when big kids leave i still play with 9 and 10 year olds and i enjoy it but i feel like a little kid when i do it so i dont do it when big kids are around!

  • Flyingrider on October 21st, 2013 - 11:33am


    Where is all of my club members????

  • Superman on October 21st, 2013 - 3:29pm


    @FLYINGRIDER me too i feel like a little kid playing with toddlers and little kids but i still think it’s fun and i do prefer older kids over little kids but there is something about little kids that i like.I don’t play with little kids when big kids are around either because i get made fun of.I am still on here i don’t know were everyone else is though.

  • Flyingrider on October 22nd, 2013 - 10:36am

  • flyingrider on March 24th, 2014 - 9:49am


    ok i found it! what did u wanna tell me i have missed u i havent been on alot because i have had drama practice but its over so will be on more!

  • stormshadow on March 24th, 2014 - 10:26am


    Yes Awesome what Drama are you in? anyways i wanted to talk to you about starting up clubs again since the search bar is busted i can just post the links and stuff since the clubs were doing good than the members left

    i.e superman,aragorn,i luv shona,etc

    what do you think?

    BTW do you want this to be our secret chat site?

    p.s i have a TON of dual identity’s on here Just so you know i am strider B.O.M.N lotr fan, starkiller and K4C

    but keep it secret i wanna see if people figure out

  • stormshadow on March 24th, 2014 - 10:27am



  • stormshadow on March 24th, 2014 - 11:29am


    And how we could do it is we both try to find low number-in-comments podcasts and than put the links to them on here and than let’s say beginning of April? we start advertising them. but for the prez and vice prez stuff how about we make it so you can only be prez on one club and vice on one club (sorry i know that’s a bad term horse-wise) so then we have all these clubs set-up that need prez’s and vice-prez’s so we(me and you) hold elections for each club. is this to confusing sorry

    OK THATS AWESOME OK i have an idea but i will answer your qs first I am in a drama with our church. It is a human video and we are using the songs we wont be shaken, oceans, and proof of your love. Well we showed it on friday night so we are done except that we have 2 show it on next sunday. Well enough about that I really want to start the clubs up again! We should definately make this our secret chat bar! Wow i wouldve never guessed those names and i will keep them a secret.

  • flyingrider on March 24th, 2014 - 1:27pm


    Well i do like the idea of low comment pages i had this idea like last year i wanted to make all of OUR clubs on one page like say maybe the free episode page on the right side of the screen. that would be easier because since the search bar doesnt work… welll it just makes it harder to find the clubs.Just an idea oh do u mean u are only aloud to be prez of one club? Thats fine but me and u decide like who is gonna be prez? That is fine that was confusing but i think i decifered it! :-)

  • flyingrider on March 24th, 2014 - 1:39pm


    oh and 1of9 got u on the posting page wanted memories thing just so u know.

  • stormshadow on March 24th, 2014 - 1:54pm

    flyingrider gaaaaah wish my bro would keep quiet about my names he told everyone I’m K4C oh, and don’t say anything about the clubs to him please he can find out about it with the rest of the normal posters anyways that dram thing sounds cool so I’ll post links to clubs on here and you come up with clubs we should have K?

  • stormshadow on March 25th, 2014 - 10:48am


    sry okay yes me and you decide to be prez of one club before we start this and than whoever wants to be prez or vice prez of a club comes to us and we hold an election and yes you can only be prez of one club and vice prez of one club cuz in real life you wouldn’t be president of two things you know what I’m saying?

  • stormshadow on March 25th, 2014 - 11:14am


    what about the 2008 block what do you think the first one’s already a club so here’s clubs i can think of and we just need to put them in a podcast.

    Upcoming episode theory’s

    Eugene fan club

  • stormshadow on March 26th, 2014 - 11:31am


    Okay i got most of the clubs ready i have to wait for comments to get in to be sure though Wer’e almost ready to unveil hey, i just got an idea :lightbulb: well it was yours but you know how your good with clues well what about for the next 5 days you lead them along the blog and on the last day here. that will give them something to do and build up there anticipation than on April 1st we’ll go crazy advertising for the clubs and why don’t u do 1 clue a day?

  • stormshad0pw on March 27th, 2014 - 8:20am


    My brother keeps looking over my shoulder could you finishe setting up clubs

  • flyingrider on March 27th, 2014 - 9:32am


    that clue idea is great but um since we dont have the search bar it will be real hard! ok u made all of the clubs right? ok i will start advertising ( meaning i will get everyones attention not where it is though! :-)

  • flyingrider on March 27th, 2014 - 9:45am


    ok stormshadow since we got sooo confused making the clubs why dont we just use the 2009 podcasts and just u can post the clubs k? we will have 2 let tinyauthor know but we got soo confused so how about u start making the clubs and i will make a list of clubs to make. oh and i’ll also keep track of prezs ,vice prez, memebers and places k? so maybe use the 200009 podcasts because it is just messed up in 2008 k? i hope that works. it will be easier if it is just cont

  • flyingrider on March 27th, 2014 - 9:47am


    one person posting the clubs k i still wanna be prez of the penny club and vice of the olivia club. What do u wanna be prez and vice prez for? i will make a list now

  • flyingrider on March 27th, 2014 - 1:26pm


    ok stormshadow how about i make all of the on the 2009 cause it got confusing cause there were 2 people but i will start making them on the 2009 k. it is easier with just one person doing it because then we dont make double clubs.so i will make them on the 2009 podcasts

  • flyingrider on March 27th, 2014 - 1:29pm

  • Blog Moderator on March 28th, 2014 - 8:49am


    Hi Everyone,
    It’s great that you are creating clubs, but as a reminder, we ask that you don’t have positions like “President,” “Vice President,” and so on, as this only leads to hurt feelings. Thanks!

  • stormshadow on March 28th, 2014 - 9:34am


    FLYINGRIDER UH, NO! let’s try 2011 k?

  • flyingrider on March 28th, 2014 - 5:20pm

  • stormshadow on April 4th, 2014 - 1:49pm



  • DESTINY14 on April 4th, 2014 - 2:26pm


    storm shadow I’ve thought of two names 1.your real name 2.Shadow Boy. I know they don’t sound cool but thats all I got.

    I’m guessing that me and great unknown sound nothing a like, because no one has thought that I could be the great unknown .I tried to make sure that I wasn’t a suspect by asking 1of9 if she was great unknown.

  • flyingrider on April 7th, 2014 - 3:23pm


    DESTINY14 OH wow well anyway catholic 101 was a 10 or11 yr old boy and i am penecostal but guess we didnt give out that info!oh and the idea to ask ur self stuff was a great idea i even did that a couple of times!

  • stormshadow on April 8th, 2014 - 10:54am


    Catholic101 isn’t ten or eleven I’m sure of it!

  • shadowcloak on April 9th, 2014 - 7:43am


    Destiny: Hey i just thought of something okay what me and flyingrider are doing is making a bunch of odyssey clubs with daily trivia Qs But since there are sooo many and so many Qs that have to be asked do you want to help us out with the Qs? (you don’t have to but if you wanna) all you have to do is find trivia for a few aio characters somewhere (aio wiki is a good place they have a bunch of little know trivia.

    flyingrider is that okay if Destiny helps us with Qs?

    -Joe the British rappa’

  • shadowcloak on April 9th, 2014 - 7:51am


    Okay flyingrider if you are okay with this lets do 2 groups for clubs (unless destiny is helping) and than we both do trivia Qs for those clubs like lets say like this:

  • DESTINY14 on April 11th, 2014 - 2:07pm


    Your good Shadowcloak.

  • DESTINY14 on April 11th, 2014 - 2:57pm


    Hey you guys I was just thinking that you could make three other clubs for
    and Grady
    There just suggestions but I think that a lot of people like those characters.And if you you guys are too busy I could organise them. The 2011 posts have some openings so…But like I said ya’ll don’t have to do it.And I don’t wan’t to take over your project.

  • flyingrider on April 12th, 2014 - 10:15am


    DESTINY14 u can put those on an empty podcast i mean i dont mind and we could use help!

  • DESTINY14 on April 14th, 2014 - 9:00am


    OK cool I’ll announce it on the main podcast… If it’s alright with shadowcloak and then I’ll put it on the empty posts. :-) You could even make like games for the clubs (I’m just talking. I do that a lot) like ur supposed to find example-Penny. one of us can be ”Penny” and we give everyone clues on which post she is on. Just to keep everyone excited about the clubs.

  • flyingrider on April 14th, 2014 - 11:16am


    ya great idea!

  • DESTINY14 on April 14th, 2014 - 12:24pm


    I think that someone knows about this post.
    Where is shadowcloak he hasn’t been on in awhile

  • jimmybarclay on April 14th, 2014 - 3:04pm


    Ah, good idea tell you what… It will be hard without the search bar but i can get more involved with these clubs and be Grady Buck jules Matthew, Eugene okay I’ll post the first clues. Oh, and i started an odyssey role-playing game It’s not on club kingdom though i posted the link on the main page

  • DESTINY14 on April 15th, 2014 - 1:50am


    Ok how did Greatknown and smart guy(I think that smart guy is greatknown) know that I am Great Unknown??

  • jimmybarclay on April 15th, 2014 - 7:35am

    Sure about the clubs (less work for me) :-) I’ve been a bit lost since flygrinder isn’t here right now. Thats cool about the role playing thing. I think thats what the Barett club is doing right now.

  • flyingrider on April 16th, 2014 - 8:18am


    Im here now sorry I was kinda grounded but im back! Oh and DESTINY14 I am the GREATKNOWN? That is how i got it i dont know about smart guy though!

  • DESTINY14 on April 16th, 2014 - 10:51am


    Hey Jimmy do you think that I sounded…I don’t know a bit mean on the
    last thing that I posted on the ”Wanted fav memories of Bernard”
    Please tell me the truth because I don’t like to be mean to people and I feel like I was. :-(

  • DESTINY14 on April 16th, 2014 - 1:47pm


    FlyGrinder ohhh I’m so glad you told me I thought that someone had found the site and was using all the things we said about the mystery names. Sorry if I sounded mean when I was talking to greatknown .

  • flyingrider on April 16th, 2014 - 2:26pm


    Ok guys SPORTS TEEN and TINYATHOR12 are making a big deal about these clubs so i copied there permission and put it where they could see so we should be good!
