      ^ This is good. Very good.

      v This is high quality crem. Or low quality. I’m not sure...

  1. “My Author did some reading once on what crimes got you respected in prison. Not because there was any chance she’d go, of course...” Her voice derailed into a chuckle before she began again. “She found that anyone who preyed on children was heavily disrespected, and in fact often attacked if they weren’t kept separate. Even criminals have their standards.” 

    Her finger tapped the rock she sat on idly, then automatically tapped five more times, but before she could make it a seventh she noticed what she was doing and stilled the finger. Wincing, she continued, “One of the crimes which was often respected was drug dealing, or being found in possession of drugs. I never understood that.” She blinked once, slowly. “Taking drugs makes you dependent on them. You itch for them constantly. You think about them. You want them, even knowing how they hinder you, knowing the bad effects...even hating them, you want them. You are dependent on them.” 

    Her hand clenched into a fist, hard, the offending finger crushed up into the movement like all the rest of them. “And I understand that, intimately...but I refuse to be dependent on this.” 

    ~-~-~-~ In other words, this popped into my head and screamed at me. I keep telling myself I don’t have time to write a CBST character, but she’s in my head guuuuyyyyyys ahhhhh.

      It’s fun to have someone you created living life on a page. Or...thread I guess. But you already know that, don’t you Ene? :lol: But what’s even more fun? When they know you exist. When you don’t control them and they do what they want. When you can fight each other. It’s much more freeing. I bet you’d like that. :)

      BUT! If you know you don’t have the time. Please don’t join. Okay? It’s just that, and you know this too, things can become too much. You can’t easily hold on to something as out-of-control as CBST.

  2. Hear me out: what if you had the dystopian evil government and the main character goes off and joins a resistance group. 

    And then it turns out that the resistance psychologically conditioned him/her and the government is either doing some not great things, but still keeping the world together or making mistakes while overall putting out good effort or genuinely just good and fighting the problems they supposedly cause, and the rebellion is actually what needs to be defeated, because they’re trying to bring down the actual social structure that keeps the world from anarchy. 

    I mean, sometimes I worry about people joining terrorist groups of whatever country they live in because alllll the books do it and just...governments are flawed, okay, but if we overthrew them, in most cases things are gonna get way worse. The situation won’t improve. You just took down society and now you have to rebuild and deal with everything the gov. was. (Which can also be done well - hello, Mistborn - but only really if the ones in charge are evil or if the protagonists realize what they did was wrong.) 

    Also, give me a character who, rather than being defiant in a situation that they shouldn’t be, does the sensible thing and caves. Let a starving character break and take the food offered by their captor. Let a character who’s been conditioned to expect pain at fighting back actually stop fighting back, and quickly. Let characters be human! 

    Hm, maybe I should stop ranting about stuff before people start to think I hate all literature

      Ene, I really like this one! Dystopias are my jam and this takes the regular conventions and perfectly turns them on their head! I love it!

    Does anyone else ship Gren and Amaya? Or is it just me?

      I love Amaya and Gren. Gren is the best and he deserves everything. But...I honestly like Amaya and Khessa more.

  6. Y'all, I have no idea what to draw. I mean, I guess that's not true, I have tons of ideas about what to draw, but they're either too hard or just... not motivating enough. I know I want to work on drawing movement. Stuff like the drawing "Contemplations Aboard Cloud Nine." That one was a lot of fun and it pushed me. I know I want to draw Fallen/CBST stuff. Mostly CBST. Anyone have any suggestions? I really need it.

      I’m sorry. Ideas never seem to come when you want them...

      But...how about? Shadow standing near Marsh’s corpse in the shadow realm? That seems passionate and somewhat challenging.

      If only we knew. Infuriating in Alcatraz fashion, isn't it?

      I'm sure you'll get that detail eventually. And remember, Alcatraz is trying to prove that he isn't a hero. That's the point of the whole series. He does it well.

      At the very end. Very very end. Like the end, seconds away from the CD completely ending. There is a note from Bastille. It explains...most of your questions. Did you miss that?

      *checks* Um...yes. Most, if not all, verses about the lending of money are from the Old Testament. Fair. The context was focused on lending to to poor and to family. Interesting.

      Ah...well...fun chat. Thanks! :D
