    I have decided that I can’t wait for my next Shardiversary, I must do this now. THANK YOU TO ALL THE AWESOME PEOPLE ON THE SHARD. Thank you for reassuring me through the hard times and laughing me through the good ones, telling me I’m not the worst human on the planet both spontaneously and when I’m convinced I suck. Also, Potency, you do the above AND you have a great face. I like your face almost as much as your brain. Sorry, I just felt compelled to say that. I’ll stop bothering y’all with notifications now.

    Warning: I'm about to go deep, so only read the contents of the spoiler if you think you can handle it. I needed to let out some steam, and this was as good a way as I could find. (It relates to what happened in Germany yesterday, if that influences your decision one way or the other.) On a more positive note, cookies for all. Nothing makes things better than cookies. Except maybe plain chocolate. It's pretty close.

    Hey all, just wanted to let you know that I really appreciate your friendships. @Firerust, congrats on your big news. I'm really happy for you man. @AonEne, @Lunamor, @Sorana and @Blessing of Potency : I'm so grateful for the chance I've had to get to know you guys and gals. (Actually, I think you're all gals- but correct me if I'm wrong). You're my little internet support group, and I appreciate the time you've taken to get to know me. After all, I'm just some guy with a decent pun as his username. You all are awesome- and you deserve to know that, and always remember it. You deserve the best things life has to offer. @Truthless of Shinovar @Jaywalk- I really appreciate that I'm able to be a Nintendo Nerd with you (didn't have many of those IRL growing up, so having you guys is a pleasant change of pace) Hope you all have a fantastic week, and if you ever need to talk, laugh, or theorize- Just remember I'm here, and my PM doors are open, and I'm ready to receive you with open virtual arms.

    *The crowd hushes as the light in the theatre go off, one by one.* *A man with metal spikes through each eye steps out from behind the curtain, grinning charmingly.* *He lifts the microphone to his mouth, taking off his jacket as he does so. He throws it to a random man, who happens to be named Axel, who screams in joy and faints.* "Thank you all for coming today. I'm one of the Ark Production crew. I'm one of thirty odd of the Profile Picture Team. But now, the musical you've all been waiting for... Ark1002, the epic story of heroes and villains, of good and evil, of guac and salsa, of eggnog and hot chocolate, of pancakes and waffles, of cookies and more cookies!" *The man runs of the stage, grinning, as the curtain parts.* *Standing there, wearing a strange combination of military boots, singlets, and bowler hats, is a variety of people, of various genders, nationalities, species. They were all kneeling, with their heads down, facing a man wearing a kilt, metal boots, and gauntlets. The man had long wavy hair that reached down to his back, a thick beard, and a handlebar mustache. He was extremely muscular, and had massive shoulders. And all the hair on his body was purple.* *He looked up, smiling, and blew a kiss at the just awakened man from the audience, who immediately fainted again.* "I'm Ark. And I'm back again." *The group of people stood, pulling out various instruments, with a large amount of them consisting of bagpipes, kazoos, and lyres.* *The music began, and they all started dancing.* [Skip to the end of the musical, because I'm not going to write it.] *Ark grins as the curtain slides shut, and blows one last kiss, at the man who had now awoken, and fainted, 57 times over the course of the musical.* *The man with spikes through his eyes ran back up to the stage.* "Thank you all for coming! I hope you enjoyed the performance. And remember, Ookla Season is only 2 WEEKS 02 DAYS 04 HOURS 40 MINUTES 1 SECOND away!"

    So, I'm leaving to go on my mission tomorrow (October 9th) at around 12:00. However, I think I'll need to set up my phone so that it's a missionary phone, which I think involves setting up a missionary filter, which probably means I will have to stop Sharding before then. Anyways, thank you everyone for being such an awesome community, and thank you for all of your support for me and my memes. Goodbye, everyone. I'll be back in 2 years. *poof*

    Hello Chaos. I don't know how well you know me, and I'm sorry if this annoys you, but I just want to say thank you for running this crazy, confusing, beautiful place that is the 17th shard. Thank you for creating shardcasts for us all to enjoy. And thank you for putting up with our crap. You're the best!

    I got my mission call!!! I have been called to serve as a service missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints! The starting date for my mission and what I will be doing on my mission have yet to be determined, but I am excited to serve and looking forward to it. Even if it means I will be off the Shard for two years once it begins. I'm gonna be a missionary!

    Woohoo! 100 reputation! I am already king, but lord is good too! Cookie dough rocks! Men of RP's, of threads, My brothers, I see in your eyes the same upvotes that would make me proud, a day may come when 17th shard fais, an hour of wolves and of shattered sheilds when 17th shard comes crashing down. But it is not this day, this day we post! By all that we hold dear on this good forum, I bid thee stand! 17th sharders! There is my speech.

    Aha! 200 posts! This isn't really that significant in the grand scheme of things, but it makes me happy because my post count has been pretty stagnant for a while.

    NaNoWriMo people! *mutters about not being a great writer but needing to practice and how this is probably going to fail* I'm going to be writing a retelling of the Grimm fairy tale The Twelve Brothers, which i outlined a while back. I hope this lasts longer than last year...

    Gosh dang this is a good quote! “She did believe in Austre. She loved the teachings of the five Visions. Humility. Sacrifice. Seeing another's problems before your own. Yet she was beginning to think that she—along with many others—had taken this belief too far, letting her desire to seem humble become a form of pride itself. She now saw that when her faith had become about clothing instead of people, it had taken a wrong turn.”― Brandon Sanderson, Warbreaker

    NaNoWriMo- day 6 I'm actually still going really strong! I've been doing about 2,000 words every day, and I am 25% of the way to my goal of 50,000! So I have room for a slacker day or two, if i need it. This is so much better than last year...

    Okay, I have finally decided what my favorite movie is. It's How To Train Your Dragon. Honorable mentions: Newsies, Phantom of the Opera, Aladin, Hercules, The Lord of the Rings trilogy, Secondhand Lions, and Stardust. Although I think The Book Thief belongs in there, too.

    Welp, another day, another limitation on the shard... So my parents aren't huge fans of me being on the shard during school (and I can see why...) and so now I probably won't be on weekdays from 8-3 (MST). Also, my parents want me to spend more time writing my own thing and not "something that just gets lost in the cloud" so I may be doing that more instead of the shard. My dad doesn't like the shard at all, but my mom is okay with it cause you guys are all so great and it's my version of social media. So my mom offered me an idea. convince my dad to let me be on the shard and I can be on it more often. He's an analytical-minded person, and likes to have reasons why, evidence, proposals and counter-proposals. So, if you guys could help, give me reasons why the shard is good for me and why I should be allowed on it, I would appreciate it. So far I have "creative writing" (Shut down because I can write my own thing that could be published, which I should do too...) "good group of people" (viable, but not the strongest argument) My dad's are "it's addicting" "you spend too much time" "you focus too much on the furry stuff (THERE'S ONLY ONE MAYBE TWO ROLEPLAYS LIKE THAT AND MOST OF THE PEOPLE AREN'T AND IT'S A BETTER OUTLET FOR THAT STUFF THAN OTHER PLACES) and "You need to spend time with actual friends" (we usually only hang out on the weekends but my parents want weekdays, which usually doesn't work too well...) So if you have any ideas on why I should be allowed on the shard more,or a proposal for like "this much time on the shard, and I do (X)" or "after (X) I can have time on the shard"

    Thought I would just give everyone a quick update, so... Hello everyone! I'm alive. Life's kinda crazy right now, but you know how it goes. *shrugs* Everything's been pretty great recently. Super happy, which is always good. Hope everyone else is doing well! Reading something good, enjoying life, etc etc. Because I needed an excuse to actually post this, I'm just going to ask a quick question: what's a song that's stuck in your head right now?

    You're taking a walk/swim in Shadesmar and Captian Iko tells you not to eat his chicken. Do you: a. Soulcast the chicken into a taco b. Get the Fused to burn his ship and recover the nuggets c. Surgebind like mad through an oathgate with the chicken d. Tell the BlackThorn and hope it 'Thrills' him e. (other) *Disclaimer--->The chicken belonged to the Catian going east toward Cultivation's Perpendicularity, and his name escapes me. Since I was fond of Iko, I gave him the chicken. Forgive me Sanderfans for fudging the beautiful facts.
