"Traveling Through Space, Bouncing Through Time"

This challenge has ended!

December 8th is Pretend to Be a Time Traveller Day, and is a day, as the name suggests, to pretend to be a time traveller.

Very soon after I found out about this day I got to thinking about a possible persona to adopt. Shortly after my brain started planning out who I’d be as a time traveller I thought, “This could be an interesting character exercise.”

So, that is my challenge to you: write up a character sketch, in whatever manner or format you see fit, portraying your time traveling persona.

- Let us know where/whence you’re from; suggested timeframes are Past, a Dystopian Future, or a Utopian/Cliché Future.
- Describe appearance and/or demeanor, summarize philosophies, anything you’d feel would help characterize your persona.
- If you’re coming from the Past, try to be slightly historically accurate.
- A chain of ficlies is allowed
- Of course, have fun with it!

Best wishes!

Think you have what it takes to accept this challenge?

    I apologise for any offence I may have caused you by suggesting you might not have, but coincidences happen.

    The Hawk has entered the challenge. It’s most definitely not a complete entry, but I don’t want to write part 2 just yet. It’s my first story for a while, so be nice.

    Personally I’m more one for taking up space and biding my time. Speaking of the title, I have heard the line before. Would the words ‘Chameleon’ and ‘Circuit’ mean anything to you if I said them as a name?

    My one ends up being a bit vague. If I need to, I’ll elaborate in a sequel-sequel.

    Heh… My guess is that on Dec. 8th, g2LaP’s future self will show up from Dec. 31st, 2015 to judge the Challenge. XD

    My story didn’t submit… It was awesome too.. I’ll try and rewrite it later. Good thing I’ve got 5 years, eh?

    This is highly unusual for me but it was Bob’s fault as his entry sparked the train of thought. Shame on you ,Bob. ha,ha.

  16. Avatar Tesseract

    I’d actually had this persona in mind for a while. Thanks for giving this bit of a nudge. ^^d

Want to join in the fun? Of course you do!
