oooh first!

Finn Francis said...

this is how I do my homework

NOM Ominous said...

Yup

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

(Oh finally!)

Commander Sophia Keating (N7 Operative and Council Spectre) said...

(Hello.)


Bethany: I... Can't really... Believe you...

Loki Laufeyson- King of Asgard and Protector of the Nine Realms said...

Well we were late. Then again, he never posts so let us not ask for a COMMENT.

NOM Ominous said...

Hello.

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

Trust me Beth..Send me back, it'll be okay..

Commander Sophia Keating (N7 Operative and Council Spectre) said...

(Hello, Ominous.)

Star Inkbright - aka Straw Allegory, the Queen Metaphorist, Warrior Bubble, Addicted Analyser :) said...

Yeah. :) I mean, we're/you're back to TWENTY-TWELVE. That's a heck of a long way back. XD There's comments there from when I was FOURTEEN. That's TWO ENTIRE YEARS YOUNGER.
. . .
I just wrote 'longer' instead of 'younger' . . . when I was reading from of those two-year-old comments, fourteen-year-old me did the same thing . . .

. . .
I am having one of those sensitive connecting moments now.

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

(Hello Ominous!)

Star Inkbright - aka Straw Allegory, the Queen Metaphorist, Warrior Bubble, Addicted Analyser :) said...

Might hang out here for a bit, I guess. But not for long; I need to go to sleep, and like, I want to listen to Let It Go first and like, I want to get to sleep on time so I'm not tired tomorrow so I get up on time so I don't have to speedwalk like hell in order not to miss the bus.

Star Inkbright - aka Straw Allegory, the Queen Metaphorist, Warrior Bubble, Addicted Analyser :) said...

See? Cause and effect, cause and effect, cause and effect.

NOM Ominous said...

Hello.
Hello.

Commander Sophia Keating (N7 Operative and Council Spectre) said...

Bethany: No... You used a double negative before to try and trick me.


(Hello, Star. It is good to see you again.)

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

(*hugs star* hello Inkworth the awesomest.)

NOM Ominous said...

Nice to see you Star

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

I didn't! Beth just send me back..

Jubilance Glee said...

Pure wisdom, Derek.
Pure. Wisdom. *Nods wisely*

On a completely separate note: I GOTS A HAIRCUT
Hence the picture of Chibi-me with a haircut ---------->

*Doesn't know if the arrow will point to my profile pic but hopes people will understand but decides to write this for those who don't* *nods*
*poofs to do homework because priorities are prioritizing*

Loki Laufeyson- King of Asgard and Protector of the Nine Realms said...

If Derek hasn't got the hint he needs to COMMENT ON THIS POST from my obnoxious tweets, I don't know what else to do unless we ask Laura nicely because Laura is cool-Zaf

Jubilance Glee said...

Pssssssssssst!

Derek!
You should come on so I have an excuse to be here instead of doing homework!

*nodsnodsnods happily*

Star Inkbright - aka Straw Allegory, the Queen Metaphorist, Warrior Bubble, Addicted Analyser :) said...

Hello, omnomnomnomnominous. :)

Hi, Sophia. It is. :) :)
. . . Nice you see you again too, that is. I see me every day. :P

*takes the 'st' off the end and hugs Silente :)*
Hi. :)

@Zaf: Why does Derek need to comment . . . ?

Star Inkbright - aka Straw Allegory, the Queen Metaphorist, Warrior Bubble, Addicted Analyser :) said...

@Jubi: :P
Or maybe he shouldn't comment so it persuades you to do your homework? :)

Loki Laufeyson- King of Asgard and Protector of the Nine Realms said...

Because it's CHRISTMAS and so many Minions never had the chance to chat with him on the blog so he has to comment.

MINION ARMY WHO HAVE TWITTER- TWEET THY GOLDEN GOD UNTIL HE ANSWERS!

-Zaf

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

(*hugs star back* you are the awesomest.)

Jubilance Glee said...

Star-
....True *ignores the fact that I had accidentally typed "ture" before fixing it*
Maybe I can threaten to do nothing but reload this page UNTIL he comments so that when/if he does, I can do homework *nodsnodsnods happily*

NOM Ominous said...

That sounds like a plan, jubi

Commander Sophia Keating (N7 Operative and Council Spectre) said...

Bethany: No... I'm sorry...

Loki Laufeyson- King of Asgard and Protector of the Nine Realms said...

I believe I have been pretty annoying via Twitter.

JUST FREAKIN COMMENT IT WILL EASE THE PAIN!!!

-Zaf

NOM Ominous said...

Its okay, Bethany... I think.

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

Are you..are you keeping me captive?
-raises an eyebrow at Beth-

Jubilance Glee said...

DEREK! MY EDUCATION IS IN YOUR HANDS! COMETH ON SO I MAY LEARN! IF I FAIL ENGLISH CLASS THEN THE BLAME SHALL BE ON YOOUUUU


And totally NOT me.... nope nope nopee
Ahem

Loki Laufeyson- King of Asgard and Protector of the Nine Realms said...

DEREK I WILL SERIOUSLY EXPLODE IRELAND AND YOU WILL BE KNEELING BEFORE ME COMMENTING IN RUINS OF ONCE IRELAND!!!

-Zaf

Commander Sophia Keating (N7 Operative and Council Spectre) said...

Bethany: No... I'm just scared... I get the feeling I can't trust you...

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

-kisses her gently-
I promise I'll only talk.

Star Inkbright - aka Straw Allegory, the Queen Metaphorist, Warrior Bubble, Addicted Analyser :) said...

@Zaf: Sometimes pain cannot be eased, and we just have to learn to deal with it. Other times, we have to cause pain in others in order to ease our own pain, and in that case, we must determine which is the best option for us to pick.
I'm going over to the dark side, though. I now know how it feels to just not care enough to be nice. So. :P

However, it's Derek's Christmas too. No one should be pestered over Christmas apart from Santa. :P

@Jubi: Ture. :)
:)

Nah, Silente. Thanks, though. :)

Kerry Blight said...

Well. Is it weird that this post describes how I do my homework?? No?

Star Inkbright - aka Straw Allegory, the Queen Metaphorist, Warrior Bubble, Addicted Analyser :) said...

@Jubi: XD
You won't fail. :) I HAVE FAITH IN YOUUUUUUU.
. . . *ignores the fact that me telling her I have faith is taking up her homework time and so my faith that she won't fail is causing her to fail*

Jubilance Glee said...

Just say "hi" and nothing else.

SO WE KNOW THAT YOU'RE STILL ALIVE AND IT'S NOT A ROBOT WHO'S WRITING YOUR POSTS AND TWEETS. CAUSE IT VERY WELL COULD BE! *nodsnodsnods seriously*

Star Inkbright - aka Straw Allegory, the Queen Metaphorist, Warrior Bubble, Addicted Analyser :) said...

I do my homework like this post too. XD XD Except with Bubbles Wars instead of Anrgy Birds and Blogger and AVEN instead of Facebook nad Twitter. :)

Loki Laufeyson- King of Asgard and Protector of the Nine Realms said...

But he IS Santa!-Zat

Jubilance Glee said...

*considers that a Robot-Derek could also write a comment and the weird "prove your not a robot" thing does NOTHING to prevent robots from commenting*

Star Inkbright - aka Straw Allegory, the Queen Metaphorist, Warrior Bubble, Addicted Analyser :) said...

YES! DEREK! LET THE WORD VERIFICATION TELL US YOU ARE NOT A ROBOT!

. . . Hang on, wasn't I against pestering Derek a minute ago . . . ? O_O

Star Inkbright - aka Straw Allegory, the Queen Metaphorist, Warrior Bubble, Addicted Analyser :) said...

@Zaf: O_O
OH MY GOSH.

YOU ARE CORRECT.

MY ENTIRE LIFE HAS BEEN A LIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

DEREK, COME COMMENT AND TELL ME YOU'VE GOT MY CHRISTMAS LIST!

. . . (why am I pestering why)

@Jubi: NOOOOOOOOO
WE ONLY THINK IT DOESN'T PREVENT US BECAUSE WE ARE NOT HUMANS AND SO IT DOESN'T ACTIVATE ITS VERIFCATION POWERS FOR US. C:

Jubilance Glee said...

It's funny because yesterday I spent nearly 2 HOURS trying to decide which font to use since Arial is getting boring.

Loki Laufeyson- King of Asgard and Protector of the Nine Realms said...

YES DEREK YOU ARE SANTA WHY HAVE YOU FAILED US SANTA IS NICE NOT MEAN AND IGNORING THE CRIES OF THE CHILDREN!

-Zaf

Commander Sophia Keating (N7 Operative and Council Spectre) said...

Bethany: *kisses her back* I'm sorry... I don't think I can handle this...

Jubilance Glee said...

OH NOO! STAR IS CONFLICTED!

Derek, you don't have to STAY-- you can just post ONE comment saying something all Golden-Godly and then leave and it's all good! *nodsnodsnods happily again*

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

*sighs and hugs Beth tightly*
..okay...if you want then I..I'll stay..its fine..

Loki Laufeyson- King of Asgard and Protector of the Nine Realms said...

ONE TEENY LITTLE COMMENT?

Like realy small like 'hi'?

PLEASE?

-Zaf

Star Inkbright - aka Straw Allegory, the Queen Metaphorist, Warrior Bubble, Addicted Analyser :) said...

@ZAF: HOW DO YOU KNOW SANTA IS NICE? HOW DO YOU KNOW IT'S NOT ALL JUST AN ACT? :P

@JUBI: I EXIST TO CONFLICT.
HEH THAT RHYMES. :P

*nodsnods with JubiJubi :)*

Jubilance Glee said...

Zaf- If you think about it, Santa is actually really mean to the kids on the naughty list.... O.O
DEREK, YOU MEANNIE!

Star- ERMEGHERD YER RIGGHT

Star Inkbright - aka Straw Allegory, the Queen Metaphorist, Warrior Bubble, Addicted Analyser :) said...

I'm just imagining Derek posting saying 'hi' and us being like DEREEKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HELLO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! TELL US YOU LOVE USSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and him just having disappeared. XD

Star Inkbright - aka Straw Allegory, the Queen Metaphorist, Warrior Bubble, Addicted Analyser :) said...

@Jubi: OF COURSE I'M RIGHTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT. I'M MEEEEEEEEEE.

Jubilance Glee said...

^*ABOUT THE US NOT BEING HUMAN THING

Star Inkbright - aka Straw Allegory, the Queen Metaphorist, Warrior Bubble, Addicted Analyser :) said...

damn
Damn
DAMN

I probably need to go to sleep soon BUT I'M HAVING FUNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN. :(

Loki Laufeyson- King of Asgard and Protector of the Nine Realms said...

DEREK JUST COMMENT COMMENT COMMENT I WILL GO PESTER YOU VIA TWITTER AGAIN!!!!

-Zaf

Commander Sophia Keating (N7 Operative and Council Spectre) said...

Bethany: *hugs her tightly back* Thank you... Please be happy with me? There's no point in us being together if you're not happy with me...

Jubilance Glee said...

ERMAGHERD YER RIGHT AGERN!

(agern is again with a "ger" instead of a "gai") *nodsnodsnods with Stararar*

Star Inkbright - aka Straw Allegory, the Queen Metaphorist, Warrior Bubble, Addicted Analyser :) said...

OHMYGOSH
I LITERALLY JUST NOW OPENED ONE OF THE FORUMS ON THE FORUMS AND THE TOP POST WAS 'Is Santa Claus immoral?'

O_O
COINCIDENCES.

Sir Reingington said...

Ms. Inkbright, your health comes before your entertainment.

Ms. Kerias, you repeatedly pestering Mr. Landy will make him LESS likely to comment.

Star Inkbright - aka Straw Allegory, the Queen Metaphorist, Warrior Bubble, Addicted Analyser :) said...

@JubiJubi: Why 'gerngern'? What's wrong with 'gaigai'?
. . . Why are half my nouns doubledoubling? :O

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

Of course I'm happy with you Beth. How could I not be?

Star Inkbright - aka Straw Allegory, the Queen Metaphorist, Warrior Bubble, Addicted Analyser :) said...

@Sir: Does it?
. . .
Oh.
:(

Jubilance Glee said...

DEREK! THINK OF MY HOMEWORK! IT'S WAITING FOR ME TO COMPLETE IT AND YOU'RE LETTING IT DOWN!

DO IT FOR THE HOMEWOOOOORRKKK

Loki Laufeyson- King of Asgard and Protector of the Nine Realms said...

It always used to work, Sir. We would yell and he'd come.-Zaf

Sir Reingington said...

Believe it or not, Ms. Kerias, some time has passed since then.

Commander Sophia Keating (N7 Operative and Council Spectre) said...

(Hello, Sir.)


Bethany: You don't want me... You don't want this version of me...

Velvet Shadows, Flo Melody said...

(Hi everyone!
I always do this and then give up...)

Jubilance Glee said...

Star- Because "yeryer" and "gerger" rhyme and since I said "yer" then "ger" sounded like it worked better than "gai" *nodsnodsnods againgaingian*

Jubilance Glee said...

HAI VELVET!! *supermegatacklehugsofdoom*

Loki Laufeyson- King of Asgard and Protector of the Nine Realms said...

Stop raining on my small ray of hope.

I bloody give up! He offcially hates us he won't even comment or post....

-Zaf

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

Yes I do Beth! I want you no matter what. I just..I wish I hadn't failed you is all.

Sir Reingington said...

...

Ms. Kerias, if you believe that Mr. Landy hating you entails him not acknowledging you, you may have to reevaluate your priorities.

Jubilance Glee said...

There are no such things as coincidences.

Jubilance Glee said...

Well now we know that's not true, Zaf.

*remembers MY priorities----and homework* *shivers*

Commander Sophia Keating (N7 Operative and Council Spectre) said...

(I rather agree, Jubilance. Everything happens for a reason. It is just a case of determining what that reason is.)


Bethany: You have not failed me. I promise. I do not feel failed.

Velvet Shadows, Flo Melody said...

(Hi Jubi! *is supermegatacklehugsofdoomed* How are you?)

Loki Laufeyson- King of Asgard and Protector of the Nine Realms said...

I'm going to pretend Sir is not here so that I don't lose my ever loving mind.-Zaf

Star Inkbright - aka Straw Allegory, the Queen Metaphorist, Warrior Bubble, Addicted Analyser :) said...

@Jubi: ah I see.

Derek doesn't hate us.
I'm sorry, but Derek's been wonderful to us.

@Sophia: . . . *nods* *tilts head* That's interesting. :)

MSD.

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

(That's a bit rude Zaf.. sir has a point.)



Okay..good.
-smiles-

Commander Sophia Keating (N7 Operative and Council Spectre) said...

Bethany: *hugs her tightly*

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

*hugs her tightly back*
*sighs happily*

Jubilance Glee said...

Velvet-
Well I WOULD be good if I didn't have the stress of having to do all this late homework on top of all this regular homework because I procrastinate wayyy too much and never get any work done until it's 3 in the morning or I just fall asleep and never get any work done at all so I have to get work done but now I've committed myself to not doing any work until Derek comes on so now who knows if I'll ever get into college?AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH *dies*

*wakes up*
But all that aside, I'm pretty good! You?

Loki Laufeyson- King of Asgard and Protector of the Nine Realms said...

I'm just going I'm always told off and I never seem to do any GOOD apparently. *promptly leaves*

-Zaf

Commander Sophia Keating (N7 Operative and Council Spectre) said...

(Goodbye Zafira.)


Bethany: Thank you.

Tia Halcyon - Sticky Tape said...

*stumbles in*

Hello.

(Zaf, Derek is busy, he doesn't hate us.)

Jubilance Glee said...

*totally didn't mean to start the impending argument...*
*shrinks into the corner*

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

(-mutters about that NOT being what she was doing-)


What for?
- takes Beth's hand in hers, swinging it slightly-

Velvet Shadows, Flo Melody said...

(Wow Jubi! *hugs* I'm fine, a little tired but fine...)

Loki Laufeyson- King of Asgard and Protector of the Nine Realms said...

It isn't your fault Jubi. You were just following my lead and then others decided to have a go at me.-Zaf

Jubilance Glee said...

Velvet-
You sound too fine to be healthy. Do you want to do my math homework?

Commander Sophia Keating (N7 Operative and Council Spectre) said...

Bethany: Staying with me... Being happy with me... *smiles and squeezes her hand*

Sir Reingington said...

Ms. Kerias, excuse me if I am incorrect, but I was attempting to reassure you that Mr. Landy does not hate you.

If you feel that my own belief that you were incorrect in your presumptions irked you to the point where you could not recognize that I was attempting to reassure you well, I am sorry that you feel that way.

Loki Laufeyson- King of Asgard and Protector of the Nine Realms said...

Is it Goememtry cuz I suck at that.-Zaf

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

-squeezes her hand back-
Of course I'm happy with you. Sure it's a bit complicated in the thousand year thing but I wod wait forever if I had to.

Jubilance Glee said...

No it's um...

Well I don't really know what it is...
Problem solving? Creative reasoning? I don't know. Thinking about it makes me think about all my other homework and that's not fun...

Adrasdos Dark said...

Like a cat I have nine lives

This is number three...

Velvet Shadows, Flo Melody said...

(Depends, what level maths are you? I'm only in Year 9 so...)

Lavender Hope said...

YES DEREK POSTED AGAIN!!!

HE LISTENED TO MY POST!!! :D:D:D

I had asked a question about how to actually WRITE the book and he posted it! THANK YOU DEREK!!!!!!!


YOU MADE ME SO HAPPY!!!!

Jubilance Glee said...

*gives Adra a supermegatacklehugofdoom*

Commander Sophia Keating (N7 Operative and Council Spectre) said...

Bethany: Thank you... You're amazing.

Velvet Shadows, Flo Melody said...

(OmgomgomgomgomgomgomgomgomgomgitsADRAAAAAAAAAAAAA!)

Lavender Hope said...

THRUST OMINOUS GET YOU BUTT BACK IN HERE AND SAY HI I HAVEN'T SEEN YOU IN FOREVER!!!!!!

Tia Halcyon - Sticky Tape said...

Now we can all write as well as Derek! c:

Jubilance Glee said...

Velvet-
Oh
I'm in 10...

Would you happen to be one of those genius children who can do anything number-related in like 3 seconds?

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

-smiles-
Hardly. I just try my hardest to get things right..
I think we should take to your mother..

Commander Sophia Keating (N7 Operative and Council Spectre) said...

Bethany: What about?

NOM Ominous said...

Hi

Adrasdos Dark said...

Dying is an art
Like everything else
I do it exceptionally well...
I do it so it feels like hell
I do it so it feels real

Lavender Hope said...

*TACKLEHUGS THRUST AND ADRA*
HIHIHIHIHIHI!

Thrust, how HAVE YOU BEEN???

Oops, I only meant for the have to be caps.

Jubilance Glee said...

*in a strained voice*
Derek! I have homework!

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

I..want to try get her to forgive me?

Commander Sophia Keating (N7 Operative and Council Spectre) said...

Bethany: Alright. That is fine.


(I will be back soon.)

Loki Laufeyson- King of Asgard and Protector of the Nine Realms said...

THRUST!!!!!!!!-Zaf

*Gives Adra brownies and another hug* ...

Velvet Shadows, Flo Melody said...

(I'm an academic scholar if that helps?
Hi Adra! Pleasure to meet you!)

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

(Okay Soph.)

*nods*
Thanks..where is she?

NOM Ominous said...

Lav!! Sup?
I've been okay. I haven't been doing any writing. Mostly reading and school.
Its nice to see you. How are you?

Jubilance Glee said...

Velvet-
Hmmm...
I'm not sure exactly what that means, but it SOUNDS smart!
*nodsnodsnods happily and gives math homework*

Star Inkbright - aka Straw Allegory, the Queen Metaphorist, Warrior Bubble, Addicted Analyser :) said...

@Lav: :/ Adra has the right to post what she wants,and telling her not to express her horrible feelings probably isn't going to help her . . .
No offense. :/ *hugs*

*hugs Candle*

Lavender Hope said...

Star Inkbright - aka Straw Allegory, the Queen Metaphorist, Warrior Bubble, Addicted Analyser :) said...

Sorry, distonating . . .

Star Inkbright - aka Straw Allegory, the Queen Metaphorist, Warrior Bubble, Addicted Analyser :) said...

@Lav: Yes, but Adra is depressed, and that isn't goign to change. Telling her she has to supress her depression is only going to make her depression worse, not better. :/

Star Inkbright - aka Straw Allegory, the Queen Metaphorist, Warrior Bubble, Addicted Analyser :) said...

(sorry)

Sir Reingington said...

Ms. Hope, that... Is a less-than sensitive statement, that could be taken in a variety of ways. If Adra is depressed, then she needs affection and reassurance, not to be made out as the source of someone else's sadness.

Lavender Hope said...

*sighs*
Yeah, I get that, but my stupid mind doesn't like being sad...

I have a stubbornly hopeful attitude that even gets annoying for me sometimes...

But that's kinda how I deal with the bad things...

NOM Ominous said...

ZAFFFFY - Thrust
You died really hard.
Hey Adra!!

Star Inkbright - aka Straw Allegory, the Queen Metaphorist, Warrior Bubble, Addicted Analyser :) said...

*suppress
*supress?
*help?
*spelling?
*help? :P

Loki Laufeyson- King of Asgard and Protector of the Nine Realms said...

It just gets to the point where I question why she bothers commenting and people bother saying hi. She won't answer you.-Zaf

Lavender Hope said...

DEREK COME ON AND SAY HI TO ADRA SHE DESERVES IT.

*is not helping at all*

Star Inkbright - aka Straw Allegory, the Queen Metaphorist, Warrior Bubble, Addicted Analyser :) said...

@Lav: I don't think Adra likes being sad either, and no offense, but I think she's a lot sadder than you so her sadness needs lessning more . . .

Lavender Hope said...

*decides to shut up*

Sir Reingington said...

Ms. Kerias, you have repeatedly ignored people in the past and then turned around and complained about being ignored. I do not believe that you should be judging Adra's actions until you reflect upon your own.

Star Inkbright - aka Straw Allegory, the Queen Metaphorist, Warrior Bubble, Addicted Analyser :) said...

@Zaf: She won't answer.
So?
I can still speak to her, and hope she can read it.
. . .
Or speak about her, as I'm currently doing. :S

Jubilance Glee said...

I'm the same way, Lav...
Usually when I try making people happier it just ends up with me saying the wrong things, so....

Star Inkbright - aka Straw Allegory, the Queen Metaphorist, Warrior Bubble, Addicted Analyser :) said...

@Lav: Yeah . . . sorry. :/ I didn't want to make you feel bad, but I didn't want Adra to feel bad either, so I sort of had to speak up. :/ *hugs*

Thank you, Sir.

Loki Laufeyson- King of Asgard and Protector of the Nine Realms said...

That doesn't even prove my point- She comments people greet her and she ignores them. Then a while later the same cycle. It makes NO sense.-Zaf

Star Inkbright - aka Straw Allegory, the Queen Metaphorist, Warrior Bubble, Addicted Analyser :) said...

@Jubi: :( *hugs*
Your presence often makes me happier, if that helps.

But yeah, I get you. Sometimes I just feel so damn helpless because I have no clue what to say, but I'm aware that me not saying anythign is not helping either, but what DO I say? :P

Jubilance Glee said...

Especially through text since it's all emotionless and stuff...

Sir Reingington said...

Ms. Kerias, be that as it may, Adra has just as much a right to speak her mind as you do. Simply because you do not understand her behavior does not mean that she should act according to your beliefs.

NOM Ominous said...

And zaf, how many vain attempts have you made at getting Derek to comment...?

Adrasdos Dark said...
This comment has been removed by the author.
Star Inkbright - aka Straw Allegory, the Queen Metaphorist, Warrior Bubble, Addicted Analyser :) said...

Different people have different rules. One-time commenters don't talk to us, and as such ignoring them is socially acceptable. I often neglect to greet people and I often neglect to say I'm leaving, but people are used enough tot hat (I think) that they won't get offended. It's like how C can say mean things to me and I won't care because she's mean, but if someone nice like Fabi said the same things I would get all hurt. :P

Loki Laufeyson- King of Asgard and Protector of the Nine Realms said...

I never said she had to do anything and why would she anyway? Again: People always twist what I say to make me the bad guy. I don't appreciate that. Maybe we need to examine other's before we examine me for a change. This is why I hate this place, I'm always judged by what happened so long ago most people don't remember and those who do just assume me the bad guy and never listen just like Derek over the summer.

-Zaf

Star Inkbright - aka Straw Allegory, the Queen Metaphorist, Warrior Bubble, Addicted Analyser :) said...

@Jubi: Text is easier for me because I can choose how I conduct myself through it. I can't control my word choice and tone of voice and things nearly as well irl. :P But yeah, I get you. :)

Loki Laufeyson- King of Asgard and Protector of the Nine Realms said...

I just gave up it is pointless with him. He won't comment because we aren't that freakin important, he rather tweet to people. Which is fine it just upsets me....Not everyone is allowed on Twitter...-Zaf

Star Inkbright - aka Straw Allegory, the Queen Metaphorist, Warrior Bubble, Addicted Analyser :) said...

@Zaf: I don't mean to twist what you say. If you think I am, there's probably a communication issue somewhere along the chain. :/

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

(-contemplates how much a seven foot long pole would HURT- -stops contemplating that- -its a weird thing to contemplate- -and to imagine- -tilts head and frowns-)

Star Inkbright - aka Straw Allegory, the Queen Metaphorist, Warrior Bubble, Addicted Analyser :) said...

We are important, and Derek knows it. That's why he's so busy; busy writing for us. ;)

Tia Halcyon - Sticky Tape said...

Raman (Plural Ramen) is one of Demosthenes' branches on the Hierarchy of Foreignness. A raman is "the stranger we recognize as human, but of another species"; a sentient being who is of another species.


Varelse is one of Demosthenes' branches on the Hierarchy of Foreignness. A varelse is "the true alien, which includes all of the animals, for with them no conversation is possible. They live, but we cannot guess what purpose or causes make them act. They might be intelligent, they might be self-aware, but we cannot know it."

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

(Yeah gonna stop imagining that..)

Lavender Hope said...

I'm going to go if you guys are going to start arguing again.

And I'm sorry.
*hugs Adra AND Zaf*
*fades out*

Loki Laufeyson- King of Asgard and Protector of the Nine Realms said...

Not everyone does it just annoys me when some people do, like I'm NOT THE BAD GUY. I never was and never will be and I'll get a bull story of how I am.-Zaf

Star Inkbright - aka Straw Allegory, the Queen Metaphorist, Warrior Bubble, Addicted Analyser :) said...

@Sil: That wouldn't just HURT. It would . . . actually split you in half or summat. Or, like, stab you in the heart and the brain on the way up and you'd die. Unless you just used the end of it. :P

Loki Laufeyson- King of Asgard and Protector of the Nine Realms said...

Forget it I just should not be here, I never should have commented. Its all my fault we are neglected, when is it not my fault?-Zaf

Tia Halcyon - Sticky Tape said...

(Zafira, Derek told me that commenting is more difficult and time-consuming than tweeting, and he'd prefer to stay on Twitter when he has the time to talk.)

I'm sorry too, Lav. :( :( *hugs*

@Zaf: I don't believe in 'bad guys' and 'good guys'.
I believe we all haev good and bad inside us, but some people act more bad than good. I don't like labelling people as 'good guys' or 'bad guys' because no good guy is always good and no bad guy is alwyas bad, and good and bad are subjective anyway.

Star-
Yeah that's true...
If I had some sort of verbal backspace button irl then life would be so much easier...
But usually things seem so... uncaring through text. Unless you know the person well enough.
That's why I use lots of ellipses and emojis when talking to someone... :P


.... that ":P" was totally unintentional

Star Inkbright - aka Straw Allegory, the Queen Metaphorist, Warrior Bubble, Addicted Analyser :) said...

@Zaf: How is it your fault? :S

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

(@Star I think you'd just use the end of it if you were in control. Not sure why you'd be using that in the first place but hey, some people like weird things.


Yeah..let's stop thinking bout that now..)

Star Inkbright - aka Straw Allegory, the Queen Metaphorist, Warrior Bubble, Addicted Analyser :) said...

@Jubi: IKR!!!
I try to adapt my speech to make it seem more caring, but . . . sometimes, words just don't work. :P

NOM Ominous said...

I have to go.
I hope everything works out

Star Inkbright - aka Straw Allegory, the Queen Metaphorist, Warrior Bubble, Addicted Analyser :) said...

@Sil: Too true. I went on a thread once on AVEN for fetishists and they were all describing their fetishes and I was just like "O_O . . . *backs away slowly*"
:P

Maybe we should. :P

Star Inkbright - aka Straw Allegory, the Queen Metaphorist, Warrior Bubble, Addicted Analyser :) said...

@Thrust: Me too. :( Fours.

Jubilance Glee said...

There are so many weird conversations going on at once rn...

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

(@Star we should stop. *nods*)

Loki Laufeyson- King of Asgard and Protector of the Nine Realms said...

Then why write a blog and not comment? How would he like it if he was in one of the positions of people forbidden from Twitter? I would be furious.-Zaf

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

(BYE PEOPLE WHO'RE LEAVING!)

Kallista Pendragon- The Beautiful Zombie Queen and Thief in Black said...

Hello! It's good to be back in a shiny new blog post. :)

(I am back.)


Bethany: In another part of the realm... I own this part, now.

Star Inkbright - aka Straw Allegory, the Queen Metaphorist, Warrior Bubble, Addicted Analyser :) said...

@Sil: Yes. :P

@Jubi: Yup. XD

Actually, I REALLY NEED TO GO. :O Sorry, I want to stay, it's just, Sunday night! :( :( :( :(

Tia Halcyon - Sticky Tape said...

Hello Zaffy, Jubi, Sil, Star, Hope and Ominous!

Sir Reingington said...

Because believe it or not, Ms. Kerias, this Blog's comment section is not the center of Mr. Landy's universe.

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

(Hey Kallie!)

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

(Hey Soph!)


Own it? Like as in its yours?

Star Inkbright - aka Straw Allegory, the Queen Metaphorist, Warrior Bubble, Addicted Analyser :) said...

@Zaf: . . .
Why does he need to comment on his own blog . . . ?

He writes the posts. The comments are OPTIONAL and they are there for people to write views on the post, primarily. Replies to comments are also optional. I never comment on any of my blogs . . .

Tia Halcyon - Sticky Tape said...

Hey Sophia and Kallis!

Loki Laufeyson- King of Asgard and Protector of the Nine Realms said...

Sir. Just. Shut. Up. You. Are. Not. Helping. Me. Calm. Down.

Oops.

Loki Laufeyson- King of Asgard and Protector of the Nine Realms said...

Forget it I'm leaving now I want to eat and I am obviously unwanted here as everyone ismad.-Zaf

Sir Reingington said...

Ms. Kerias, I have presented my arguments in the utmost of cool and logical tones.

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

(@Zaf I'm not mad. Unless you mean insane.)

Kallista Pendragon- The Beautiful Zombie Queen and Thief in Black said...

*passes out cookies and cupcakes to anyone who wants some*

Tia Halcyon - Sticky Tape said...

*tacklehugs Zaffy*

:S

Star Inkbright - aka Straw Allegory, the Queen Metaphorist, Warrior Bubble, Addicted Analyser :) said...

@Zaf: I believe Sir's doing what I'm doing; trying to prevent people getting hurt. Sometimes, as when I had to say some things I didn't want to say to Lavender, we end up causing hurt in the process of decreasing it. This still decreases hurt overall (in theory), but it does mean that some people who wouldn't otherwise be hurt get hurt (often the people who are, intentionally or not, causing the hurt).

Star Inkbright - aka Straw Allegory, the Queen Metaphorist, Warrior Bubble, Addicted Analyser :) said...

I'm not angry at you, actually, Zaf, any more than I was angry at Lav. I'm just trying to decrease hurt.

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

(-noms the cookies-
-bows to Kallie- cousin, your ever present beauty continiues to both astound and amaze me.)

Tia Halcyon - Sticky Tape said...

(Hello, Sir.)

*Tanya grabs a cookie from Kallis*

*glares at it*

Did Dugg send you!?

Commander Sophia Keating (N7 Operative and Council Spectre) said...

Bethany: Yes. This is effectively my own little realm.

Loki Laufeyson- King of Asgard and Protector of the Nine Realms said...

Well it's bad enough now Mom comes home cursing us all.-Zaf

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

Oh..wow..

Tia Halcyon - Sticky Tape said...

(I- it feels like everybody is shouting and getting mad at each other... I'll just be ghosting, ok? Comment or email me if you need me.)

Commander Sophia Keating (N7 Operative and Council Spectre) said...

Bethany: Is that alright?

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

Yeah! Its great. You have your own place..
-smiles-
Your own private realm..

Kallista Pendragon- The Beautiful Zombie Queen and Thief in Black said...

*bows back to Silente* Cousin, Your beauty, wit and intellect blossom like a vibrant rose in winter. We all pale beside your greatness*

*hugs everyone*
