Bloblings have noticed mysterious, gooey bloblings popping up in the world. Many bloblings are weary of them because of their resemblance to the tar from the tar pits, which have been known to eat bloblings for something called 'breakfast'.
01/10/23 Hey there!
It's October now!
We've updated the Art Prompts and Writing Prompts with some new stuff for October, as ever. It's spoooooOOOOoopy season now, and our prompts have been updated appropriately! Go take a look.
It's going to be a Bleeding Season this month! New droplets will be being born at the end of next month. Get thinking about what kinds of bloblings you want to stick into some bleeds, because the Season will be releasing within the first week of the month!
We have some fun things planned for this month, but we'll be sort of sprinkling them throughout. We hope you'll like them!
Our Discord server is invite only. Please DM Ichor or Saerfall after you've submitted your blobling claim form, and we'll send you an invite link. We spend most of our time on our Discord, so if it seems quiet here, we're probably all sequestered away in our server.
Harki's ocean response was...questionable. She thought about asking more, but dismissed it, knowing that there were more important matters at hand. Like WHAT WAS HARKI DOING? Watching Ampersand, she responded "You're good! I'm... concerned about this as well." And it was true. After all, she quite liked Ampersand! Stepping up beside him, she also called down to Harki, "Yeah! What makes you better than us?" Now it was two against one. Good, Tidepool thought, behavior like this must be fixed. And she was glad she had a friend beside her. She probably wouldn't have mustered up the courage to do this all by herself! Friends were always good. But they must do the right things.

Harki hissed quietly at Ampersand, glaring down at them once they stopped bouncing. "This is not a contest. The point is that I'm simply telling the truth. You two are too busy with empty pleasantries and smiling at each other that you do not realize what is important. It's to gain power. And knowledge. And this is exactly what I'm doing." They inched higher up the roots, making sure that the other two didn't follow them up. "You two are just so utterly dense. You don't get anything from smiles and compliments. You get things from taking them." they sighed a little, not understanding how Ampersand and Tidepool just didn't seem to understand how to do things correctly.
Ampersand smiled to hear Tidepool's response. With a friend, they were brave and strong enough to do anything!
Harki's words were far less fun. But one did stick out.
"Knowledge . . . yes, that is important," Ampersand agreed. It just was! To know more and more of the universe . . . what else were they even here for? "But why power? Why try to put yourself over your friends when there's nothing bad coming? What are you scared of? Did something happen?" they asked, harshly, yet genuinely wanting to know if there were dangers around.
Even if Harki was trying to be mean, Ampersand wanted them safe.
Harki paused, thinking over the question. All of those questions. How could Ampersand not understand that knowledge had to go with power? You couldn't separate the two. And Ampersand didn't know that there wasn't anything bad happening. There could be so many terrible things. There could be something just waiting to hurt all of them. But... they weren't scared. Of course they weren't scared! Why would they be scared? They had knowledge, and that was power. "Nothing has happened. But something might happen. It is better to do this before we are all begging for our lives, do you understand?"
"Nothing has happened. But something might happen. It is better to do this before we are all begging for our lives, do you understand?"
Ampersand didn't have a good answer to that. The blob just frowned, their eyes getting big and sad as they recognized the wisdom in what Harki said. At least, it felt like wisdom, as if power and pain had been a frequent part of another life Ampersand couldn't quite remember.
But would they follow in Harki's bounce-imprints?
Ampersand considered it for a moment. Of course they didn't want to become a victim of whatever bad things might happen in the world. But could they roll over friends to do it?
They looked toward Tidepool, and their eyes softened. I could never. Whatever power Ampersand could get, they wanted none of it that they couldn't gain with other beings.
They twisted their body back and forth, an old habitual gesture. "I understand, Harki. If chasing power and hurting others to get to it -- if that's what you need to be safe and happy, I don't think I can change your mind. But we can't be friends if that's what you do."
They glanced at Tidepool, to see if she had anything to add. Were they doing the right thing, making this friendship conditional?
Ampersand was terrified this move might lose them both friends.

Tidepool didn't understand Harki. Yes, knowledge was important, but power? Power Tidepool didn't understand. It was a confusing concept to her. Why try to be better than someone, when you could be nice? That was happiness to Tidepool. She didn't really need any more than knowledge and friends. But she agreed to what Ampersand had said. They should give him a chance after all, he was new to the world, and might not know what he was doing. He deserved a chance, at least. Nodding with Ampersand, she told him "I'm with you." He had her support for sure, she just hoped this would go well...
Harki almost spat out a response at the two, but thought better of it. It was no use arguing with these two. They didn't seem to understand what Harki knew. They let out a small laugh, shaking their head. If these two wanted to hurt them, they would just try to hurt them back! "Why would I ever want to be friends with the likes of you?" they said, smiling at Ampersand and Tidepool. They sighed, staring up at the sky. These two were just so funny. Of course Harki didn't want to be friends! Why would they need friends? Friends weren't important...
Tidepool frowned. Why wouldn't Harki want to be friends with them? First the whole knowledge is power thing, and now this? On second thought, maybe they didn't deserve a second chance. No, she thought, trying to shake the thought out of her blobby mind. Everyone deserves a second chance. But maybe she should rethink that. After all, they'd been nothing but kind to Harki, and what did he give them in exchange? Just rejection and some nonsense about "competition". But no. She couldn't get angry. As she tried to calm herself, Ampersand broke the ice by asking about the lights up above. Tidepool smiled. She loved answering questions! "They're stars!" she explained, grateful for the distraction, "Glowy balls of gas!"
Harki smiled at Ampersand, amused at their little look of betrayal on their face. Maybe it would be more fun to continue this charade rather than cut Ampersand off right away. "Oh, Ampersand. I think I changed my mind. I suppose we can be friends." they purred. Tidepool, however, was a different matter. She was quite obviously more experienced than both Harki and Ampersand combined, but Harki would rather eat sand than let her know that. Maybe they could pull Tidepool along with Ampersand. "Oh. Oh yes. Those are stars, Ampersand. Quite lovely, are they not?" Harki, in fact, had no idea what those were until just now. They didn't know what Tidepool meant by 'glowy balls of gas' either, but neither of them had to know that.
Ampersand tore their gaze from the stars to give Harki a guarded look. They wanted to believe the orange blob was having a change of, uh, something, but they seemed too devious to simply trust. And weren't they only several moments old? How could Harki magically have so much knowledge when Ampersand was still learning?
Something definitely smelled fishy. Just as soon as Ampersand figured out what fish and smells were.
"Okayyy," they said slowly, responding to Harki's less than convincing spiel. "You've just gotta prove it. Be with us, and we'll be happy to have you along. Right, Tidepool?"
Stars. What a wonderful word. And they were balls -- like us? Maybe they were related! "What are they doing up there? Do they speak?" asked Ampersand, aiming the question squarely at Tidepool.
Tidepool still didn't trust Harki. What was up with the sudden compassion? Something definitely didn't seem right, and Tidepool suspected that she should probably figure out what it was soon, or they would all have to suffer the consequences. After all, they didn't know what Harki could do to them, and it was apparent he didn't care at all...hmm. Tidepool, hearing Ampersand's compromise, nodded in approval. "Right!" she exclaimed, hoping they were making the right choice. Then, answering their question, she said to Ampersand, "Hmm...I'm not sure. I feel like we would hear them if they did talk, they look so big! But maybe they're just quiet? Or shy?"
"Of course I'll be with you. What kind of friend would I be if I didn't follow you? Then we would never have the lovely chance to talk." Harki smiled at Ampersand. As they listened to Ampersand and Tidepool discuss the speaking habits of stars, they slowly lowered themselves from the Color-Plant, careful not to fall off and make a fool of themselves. "Now, if you two are finished with gawking over those stars of yours, we should get moving. It's quite boring just sitting under this... Color-Plant. Alone. In fact, I myself was heading towards that settlement area over there before Ampersand caught my attention."
Ampersand nodded. What Tidepool said made sense. Maybe the stars didn't say anything. Or maybe all they needed was someone who could get up close.
They let that line of thought go. Harki was suggesting something new. They wanted the trio to move. Amp wasn't sure what was driving the urgency, but they were happy to go along. They'd be exploring the world!
"Sure, let's go," they agreed, and nodded to Harki. Ampersand was sure they'd be happy for a chance to lead, given what they were saying, suspiciously recently. "After you."
Ampersand began following behind Harki and Tidepool wherever they went, before one last thought occurred to them. They stopped, turned around, and bounced at top speed, back to Color-Plant. Then Ampersand gave them one last friendly boop.
"I'll come visit soon," they promised. "You be good, and have many, many good moments!"
And with that, they headed back, following new friends to new lands.

Iora’z first memory was felling a grainy thing under her, as well as warmth. The word heat came to mind. She decided she likes heat and the grains. She heard noises, shouting. She opened her eyes to an auburn sky, along with three bloblings shouting at each other. She dislikes this and asks “why the yelling? The smiling flowers aren’t yelling, what happened?” Iora did small bounces toward the group, her focus drifting between the three as she cautiously made her way over, leaving shallow sand circles where she bounced that would have surrounding sand fall back into place. The colored stars in the sky she found lovely.
