The Travelers




Calamari
Gossamer Rudolf Rodrigo Jr.
"I’m Gossamer Junior but you can call me GJ! I met Steffie at Six Flags in San Antonio where I was wandering around on my own. I was a bit sick because I just ate 12 hot dogs, 3 whole pizzas, 4 pounds of gummy bears, 2 carrot cake slices, 8 giant pixie sticks, and at least 6 margaritas (I lost count). THEN I decided I should go on the giant ride that spins really fast. I forget the name. Needless to say, that was NOT a good idea. So, I get off the ride, about to show the world everything I ate, when Steffie almost steps on me! Poor girl was dizzy herself after that stupid ride. Anyways, she noticed I was about to spew out my guts and helped me to the restroom before it was too late. Several hours later I emerge out of the restroom and she was waiting there with a nice cup of coffee and aspirin. We have been best friends ever since."


Day 117: Promise Pizza
Lil' Gossamer
"Hello, I'm Lil' Gossamer. I met Steffie and GJ when my Uncle Gossamer vanished. They needed help so I stepped in. I mostly just help with the cooking, the cleaning, doing Steffie's homework, cleaning after Francis, and pretty much whatever everyone else around here is too lazy to do."

Note From Steffie: "Um… We’re working on getting this translated."

"Good Day! My name is Professor Bernard Lockwood. I came to this world to make new discoveries and to study! Steffie and GJ have kindly taken me in as their guest. With my ever expanding curiosity of your world, I plan to travel as far as possible. With the information I acquire, I will write a book! My dream is to inspire others to take the daring risk and do what others fear. Oh, how people will adore me and my knowledge!"

"I'm Steffie. I just take pictures and bake cookies."

Day 3: Posing
Gossamer
Gossamer Rudolf Rodrigo was the reason this whole project started. Gossy and I have been traveling for as long as I can remember. He was my best friend. Even during the darkest times, he was there. When nothing in the world seemed right, I just had to hug him, and I knew it would be alright. The day he vanished, a part of who I am was also lost. I will never give up looking for him.
