Story-time with the crew: Kesmet’s song
In a jungle in a faraway land there lived a bird. He was not an especially pretty bird. In fact, his feathers resembled those of dead maple leaves trampled on by November rains. He was not a particularly smart bird either. He was unable to figure out how to crack open the shells of nuts or how to keep the shiny black beetles from scurrying away as soon as he made his first tentative hop towards his potential prey. The poor bird would often to be left hungry for the night, having spent the whole day unable to find much more than small morsels.
He did, however, posses a remarkable voice. He could imitate the longing of wind chimes and the gurgle of a creek; the boom of an organ and the hush of the wind. His peculiar talent was treated as a peculiar idiosyncrasy, which could possibly help him get a mate when he grew up, but worth little otherwise.
One spring day an explorer came by through the jungle. He was sent there to catalogue the species, investigate the topography, but instructed to leave it be. The terrain was tough, and the day was hot and humid. Sweat rolled down the man’s face in waterfalls. At around mid-day, he finally stopped for a rest under a tree and unpacked his lunch.
He was taking a gulp of water from his canteen when he first heard the noise. He jumped up and spilled a good third of the remaining water onto his shirt, but he was too occupied with the sound to care at this point.
“Hello? Who’s there?” He shouted out into the semi-darkness of the looming forest.
The jungle continued to hum its regular tune of chirping birds and cricketing bugs, but the sound didn’t resonate through the brush again.
Confused, the man snatched up his lunch and stood up and looked for the best path to what he hoped was the direction the sound came from, cause by God, if that wasn’t a woman singing then he was a roach, he thought just as one of the large brown insects rushed across his path.
Then, just to his right, he hears the opera voice again. He dashed through the bramble for another few minutes, and the voice kept getting clearer and louder. Suddenly, he found himself in a small clearing, barely big enough to stretch in without touching any trees, but significant in such a dense jungle nonetheless.
The opera voice exploded through his ear. To the explorer’s surprise, it wasn’t coming from ground-level, but rather from a small tree, upon which sat a lonely, distraught-looking bird.
“Were you doing the singing?” He asked.
The bird didn’t answer and just stared at the intruder without moving a muscle. He repeated the question. No response, not even the flutter of a feather. After a minute of the staring contest, the adventurer got tired and made a grab for the bird.
To his great surprise, it still didn’t move. Only a slight squeak of a Carefully, he took the bird into his hands.
“Oh my,” the explorer’s whispered shock came. “you’re so thin.”
The bird didn’t respond, and only his jerky breathing indicated that he was still living.
“I’m going to save you,” muttered the man. “such a wonderful voice needs to live. It deserves to be heard by the world. No, no, not even that. The world deserves to hear it.”
He took the bird and curled him up with blankets and set about thinking as to what of his food it would eat. “You are coming home with me, my friend Kesmet.”

You own a town with a lot of land, and yet you’re the only one in it. Do you have any plans with it?
Um. I like hoarding things. On my third /random after leaving Legend I found a giant castle wall. I figured “nice spawn, not too big”, did /t new. Realized half-way through that it was 225 plots. Figured eh, it’s nice enough, and kept it all. I don’t have plans for anything in the future I’m lazy.
What do you enjoy most about Meep?
Well to be honest I like the community but also the economy aspect. I may be a socialist but that doesn’t mean a system in which it’s easy to make money isn’t fun haha.
What’s your favorite subject at school?
When learning a new topic I pay attention for 2 days then once I understand it I don’t have to pay attention. I’m in the “high math” section - so I’m in grade 10 but I’m learning grade 11 stuff.
Do you like to play sports? Or listen to music?
Nah I hate sports lmao. I’m extremely unfit (no stamina) but also underweight cause of adhd meds making me not eat much.
I like eminem and lil wayne music. Well, I like rap as a whole. But like lil wayne and eminem are on opposite sides of the spectrum. One being more lyric heavy and one being more sound influenced.
Any other genres you like?
Uh not really tbh, maybe pop a bit but no rock, metal, or country, or classical or whatever else people listen to.
What’s your favorite book or movie series?
I used to read a lot every day. Like from grade 1 to 6. Then grade 7 I got a laptop. Played mc two years straight. But when I used to read I liked a series called “unwanted” about a bunch of kids in a society who were outcasts, sent to be killed once a year but really lived in a secret house.
And in terms of movies I don’t leave my house much so I watch them usually when they come out on dvd but I like the marvel franchise. But I’m not obsessed like Clue and Star Wars *Shots fired*.
*Toby gets struck by lightning out of nowhere*
Anything else you’d like to add?
Clue gimme admin.
I need /smite too.
