    @crazywriter,

    I was never on the debate page… tag me if you start one, though! (Be warned – I am horrible with debate, so I might bow out later on. ;))

    I think that’s a great idea! I love debating, and we were having some really good ones.

    And feel free to post your WIP! I think I might post some of mine too if that’s alright.


    @joelle-stone

    I feel your pain… I mostly clobber people over the head with my opinion and then say I hope it didn’t sound offensive….

    its really hard to know the way someone is actually meaning something just reading words. Like in a face to face conversation you could recognize if they were joking, or being sarcastic, whereas online it’s like there’s no context and it leads to a lot of people being offended. Just know a lot of my posts will be either joking or sarcastic so don’t take them too too seriously.

    unless their about theological stuff. Not too joking or sarcastic with that.

    That being said, let’s do it! I’ll start it back up again

     

     

    Oh, have y’all seen the voice acting auditions for the Wingfeather saga animation series?

    Heh, I’m sarcastic too, and I rarely (if ever) mean anything offensively. 😛

    AND YES I DID SEE THOSE!! I’m too scared to audition, though. XD

    Lol that’s a bit of a problem… How is he different?

    Yeah…

    Well, I think he’s less believable, less likeable, and less of a character. So, all around generally worse? LOL. You said something dangerous back there, though; someday I might take you up on your wish to read Quin’s canon story…when I get it done, lol. I’m only 16K into it so far, but, yeah. Have you started Niarok and Yila’s story?

    Uuugghhh I hate it when that happens!!!!! Yeah, that’s how I feel about Leytera right now, but I also hate her in her canon story, so nothing lost, nothing gained. That girl literally keeps slipping through my fingers. I cannot for the life of me capture her personality. It feels like writing someone else’s character… Lol I’m glad my dangerous statement might let me hear all about Quin!!! XD Um… No. I have not. To be honest, I hardly have a world or a plot for them at all. They’ve just been living in my brain for far too long and I thought I’d develop them so when I’m ready to write the story, they’re ready to go. I have no idea what it’s going to be about, but that’s fine… XD


    @joelle-stone
    , @crazywriter

    Ooooh I see the debates page now exists! I’m going to go waste my time there quick… And pretty much everything I say is sarcastic or using dark humor, so ya know… If I say something that sounds mean, I’m being sarcastic guaranteed, unless the person who I’m talking to was being a brat – then I probably mostly mean it. XD

    And I’m very busy so I’m going to stop posting now… 😀

    I definitely feel you there. A lot of people can get offended by things easily, so while I try to be considerate it’s nice to be with more understanding souls

    @crazywriter

    Yeah. To quote this awesome bumper sticker that I’m putting on my car once I get one, “easily offended people offend me.” XD I’m like, can I have an opinion please? Or does my opinion disagreeing with yours somehow harm you physically?

    Anyways, our culture annoys me sometimes if you can’t tell. 😀

    Oh. Don’t get me started on our culture. You don’t wanna open that can of worms.

     

    Just for kicks, is anyone else incensed(or almost) by the phrase, “follow your heart” ?

    Oh same. I restrained myself. I’d probably crash SE with my fury if you got me going. XD

    YESSSSSSSS IT DRIVES ME UP A WALLL!!!!! (A wall the size of Helm’s Deep, just for reference. XD)

    *coughs* My sister wants to walk up to a liquor store and say, “I identify as 21” and see how they react… 😛

    But yep, business around the household.

    @joelle-stone

    HAHAHAHAHAHAH I WANT TO SEE SOMEONE DO THAT SOOOOO BAD!!!!! My favorite is whenever someone tells me to wear a mask saying “my body, my choice!” and walking away without any other comment. XD It drives them crazy!

    YES BELIEVE IN YOURSELF!!!!!!!!! Do you know what happens when you put your strength in yourself? You fail. Because you are weak and helpless. Sorry to disappoint you. Do you know what happens when you follow your heart? You get hurt. You know why? Because your heart is a lying, blackened pit of a soul and it will tell you to do bad things. Sorry to crush your dreams.

    Ah. It’s good to know I’m not alone.

    It’s funny how many cultural Christians will insist on their salvation, but will believe and broadcast such obvious strayings from the Bible is scary. Because if not for the grace of God, we’d be right in the front of that crowd
