  1. I'm pretty indifferent to this topic (maybe I'll throw in a cent or two later), so I'm just here to show off an article I lived by when I was administrating GCs. Note how there's more negatives than positives but it is possible to "positively" work with those negatives, imo.

    It's really amazing what you can learn from other people. I've only known a few, new individuals for about a week or so but I consider them more like family than my actual one.
  3. If no responses are given by the end of August, I'm making all of this null and void.

    I figured I should post here than making a status. Also a fair trigger warning. I admitted myself to the hospital for depression so I don't know when I'll be discharged. I'll be away until I feel safe with myself.
  5. Kestrel’s response was one Andromeda had expected but it offended her regardless. What occurred in the river was no mere spectacle for petty amusement. It was a real side effect, and hopefully, a temporary one. If she touched a body of water—big or small—it would turn into those things or a dark, sticky substance. Andromeda reckoned it was a poetic blight, in a way. Water was life, and what better way than to eclipse that with what was death. Truthfully, the nymph did not mean to scare Kestrel but rather to let her see the reason why her invitations were declined. Was there not a saying of ‘seeing is believing’ amongst them? She pondered about this for a bit whilst her companion got dressed—; only, it was the questions that brought back the coldness in her heart. “Yes,” replied Andromeda, closing her eyes once more. She reclined back onto the ground with a woeful sigh. “I do not condemn them for doing so. After all, I did have a hand in… a hand in neutralizing the One who ruled us all—my father.” It was strange. Andromeda had thought about the cruel act after her beloved had died and felt vexation. When the act was done and over with, she felt nothing; not even sadness. Yet, now after time has passed (how long had she been away?) and she was in a situation where it was better just to come clean on her sins, the nymph felt an overwhelming wave of regret and sorrow. It had to be done, she told herself. It needed to be done. But was it all worth it just for her own heart’s sake? She caressed the grass apologetically. “My father created a law that forbade us to marry a mortal or someone who does not possess divinity,” the nymph explained. “I’ve always hated that law, thought it was silly but I understood and respected it. Until I met a remarkable human on this very planet, that is. Perhaps I was a fool to let him charm me but I will always cherish that he did.” “I did not lie about my origins to him and made it perfectly clear that he would die if he chose to marry me. However, he was a carefree soul who saw me beyond what I am. It was then that I made a promise to keep him from harm,” Andromeda paused. “I did everything I could but I should have known better than nothing goes over my father’s head.” Another pause; a pregnant one. “It happened so quickly and when I let my guard down. Before I knew it, I was cradling his lifeless, bloody body against me and I held him for hours until I knew I had to let him go. Out of grief and anger towards my father, I vowed to get rid of him without thinking of the consequences.” She opened her eyes and looked up at Kestrel. “Now that the deed is done, it has upset the Order and everyone has their claws trained on me. Those who are after me are not only doing their jobs but they’re making way for a new, dreadful ruler to take over.” Her eyes glanced up at the sky. “And what a better way than to take out the apparent heir to the throne, do you not agree?”

    Good thing I'm just a magical potion and a programming language.

    I thought loremaking said lovemaking and all I could think about for two minutes was lovemaking with the coconut people - which would be midkey interesting. Besides that, please take my 👍 and 👀 (cause you might catch me splashing in those waves).

    As someone who is also fiending for the expansion, I would digitally purchase the edition for whichever platform your husband plays on and slip the download code you should have received when he's not looking / least expects it. Someone did that for me out of the blue via another game because nothing speaks romance than getting a shiny new game so you can shut out the world for 100 hours.

    @Off Topic had a character named Justin Case in a thread of mine back in the day. I specifically remember it because that particular post made me laugh for ten minutes.

    Honor I

    Being immortal, you evidently become knowledgable in numerous matters—like when someone starts a sentence with the word ‘while’. Nothing promising ever came with it. Whilst you are a great fighter, we shan’t follow you or whilst you are my child, don’t forget you are illegitimate. All ‘while’ brought was a clever setup for disappointment and Lavinia rolled her eyes before Andross finished his response. Let's add another eye-roll since the man hasn’t seen her companion, either, just for good measure. These people training methods were seriously peculiar, as were their manners of speech. Andross believed to be alone but shouldn’t he know that no one is alone? Especially on an unusual world such as Val-lew-cree that is tucked in an equally out of the ordinary universe. If he hasn’t noticed Minerva by now, then how could he stand against an invisible opponent? Hell, if he wasn't aware of her presence before she laughed, then what about otherworldly foes? Perhaps awareness was least on the list. It would make sense, given the history of things. Lavinia placed her hands on her hips. “Now, Andross,” she purred. “I see that you have two ears but I’m wondering if you actually know how to use them.” There was amusement hinted in her voice, veiling the fact she was getting annoyed. His fighting style was offensive, he hasn’t seen her cat and she was pretty sure that being a guide wasn’t in her character description. “Because I said I’ll be your opponent, not a mentor.” One step forward was all Lavinia needed to close the distance between them. She grasped Andross’ chin straightaway and forced him to look at her, the intense pressure caused by her thumb and forefinger paralyzing him to the spot. If Minerva chose this time to speak, she would have said, “It was only a question, Lavinia.” Asshole. Of course, it was only a question; but, “The last time someone asked me to guide them, they misused all that was taught. Committed mass butchery on a faraway planet in a faraway galaxy that I bet you’ve never heard off so you’ll excuse me if I just don’t guide anyone.” Yeah, something like that. Lavinia took her time to study Andross’ face and, most of all, his eyes. There is one thing she agreed with her half-sister of Truth and it’s that eyes are the most honest of all. If this man claims that he would greatly appreciate her time, then Lavinia had to see it. Not only did she have to see it, but she also had to know if he was aware of what he was truly asking. Her grasp finally released and she held her head high, scowling slightly. “You don’t even know me, Comman-duh,” Lavinia accused. Minerva prowled the trees’ canopies. “To think that you are worthy of my supervision without proving said worthiness just proves you’re unworthy of it.” She turned and sighed dramatically. “I don’t even know you, either! I thought you men normally courted ladies before asking to romp in outdoors.”
