    My reliability in activity here has not been amazing as of late. Particularly in the allyverse and puzzlehunt. Firstly, I would like to apologize to those groups of people. I have been promising future activity for the past 5 months, and every time I am asked about it, I say it's not long now before I can start being active. I think I have come to the realization that my schedule doesnt allow for something as time intensive as the puzzlehunt, and I dont think I will be able to participate in it in future. For the Allyverse, I would still like to get involved, and will be attempting to do so, but when I do, I will probably not be able to participate in the way I wanted. I will likely need to resign from any titles or special positions I have. I also will probably not be able to do as much back and forth RP that is very common in the allyverse. It will likely be a paragraph or 2, and that's it for the day. For SE - I have been active with, and SE has been my number one priority on the Shars for a while. However, my activity will be falling off a bit over the next few months. I am sure once I get reused to working full time my activity will come back up, but as SE has started becoming a significant distraction at work, I will probably be taking measures to ensure it doesnt lower my productivity. Now, if you care as to why my activity will be dropping, it is in the spoiler below for length (though it may not be very long... idk yet) Well, I think that's a pretty decent summary of my life right now. Ultamately, if I wanted to do the absolute best thing for my future, I should leave the Shard to focus on what i say above... but currently, this is what I use to calm myself from the rest of life. I just need to not let this be as time consuming as it has been. Thank you all for reading! Furamirionind

    Hi anyone who bothers to read this, I'm gonna be on a cruise ship sometime from in the afternoon of the more Western-US timezones (idk how this will work, I think we're crossing one?) to around nine or ten days later. I should still have WiFi, but if it cuts out unexpectedly, I will be a very sad Ene then that's something anyone talking with me at the time should be prepared for, I guess. Sorry in advance about that.

    Batman is a wonderful story for making us ask deep philosophical questions such as "What are the difference's between a superhero, a vigilante, and Arkham Asylum's one-man volunteer security department?"

    Is my reluctance to actually post in threads here due to the fact that I don't know most of the people on this website anymore or social anxiety and fear of interrupting what I see as a closed conversation? Nonproductive speculation on this & more in today's overthinking hours with Mistrunner

    What I am about to write here has been brewing in my head for some time now, and while it may be controversial, I feel that I must put this out there: I hate fan entitlement. In fact I absolutely despise this idea that fans of any given thing "Deserve" any given thing (except of course things like, GRRM and Pat Rothfuss actually finishing their series sometime this century). For instance, using an example that may be dear to most of us here on the Shard: The Lost Metal, and Children of the Nameless. Brandon had mentioned several times wanting to write TLM during late 2018 (after Starsight). However, as we now are aware, this didn't happen- because Brandon had accepted an opportunity to write a novella for Magic: The Gathering. Post its release I began noticing reactions of disappointment that Brandon had written this instead of TLM (A reaction I marginally agree with). Disappointment is a perfectly valid reaction, and I have no problem with being disappointed in something. However, it was when these reactions became viscerally more extreme that I began to have a problem in this specific example. Phrases like "A betrayal of the fans" began to be thrown around, along with the implication that Brandon had committed some sort of cardinal sin in accepting an offer to write lore for something he loves. This is where I feel like disappointment becomes something infinitely more irrational; when we get to this point where we feel that Brandon pushing back a Mistborn book is some kind of denial of our birthright (hehe, see what I did there?) Now, I want TLM as much as the next fellow, but in no way is Brandon writing a Free novella some sort of slight against us. And this is not the only fandom I've seen this whining (it is what it is, no use sugarcoating it), and entitled accusations in. (Star Wars fandom, anyone?) I don't think it's OK, or even warranted to be throwing out these kinds of accusations. I mean at least our favorite author actually writes! Thank you for coming to my TED Rant, Disagree with me all you may, (Or ya know, agree), but my opinion on this matter is pretty much final. - Wyndlerunner

    I finally got around to reading Gaston Leroux's Phantom out the Opera! I finished it today and loved it. I recommend it to anyone who likes classics that involve ghosts. It's also way different from the musical, which i love. My thoughts on some adaptations: Andrew Loyd Webber's 1987 adaptation is amazing, as previously mentioned. I love the play, and the 2004 movie. (Although there are a few things about it that are annoying, like his mask not covering the whole deformed area of his face, and it never mentions Erik's name). I have seen part of the TV adaptation from the 1970's, I believe, and it was just cool. Some of the lines are just so dark, and appeal highly to my writer soul. It's cool. (The first half that i watched is on YouTube). Then the 1925 adaptation. The first adaptation. It's the one that's the closest to the book. There is no sound, but I found it really entertaining. It was really well done. (Guys, Lon Chaney, the guy who played the Phantom, did his own makeup). I'd actually highly recommend this one, even though it's so old. It's really good. I found it on Wikipedia under the page for the specific movie. Thanks for reading this little piece of randomness.
