  1. Every single time I see an account from 2012 in today's birthdays, I am extremely tempted to write "One of the Ancients has resurfaced" on their profile page.

  2. Oh, look Shard is getting bigger!!!:P

  5. And out of nowhere...

    I'm a Sentient Awakened Object. B) On your level now, Clearcut!

    Thanks, everyone who gave me upvotes. I'm saving a giant mushy you-all-rock-and-the-Shard-has-changed-my-life for my one year anniversary (I haven't even been here a year yet? Wow, feels like so long and yet so little at the same time...), but again, thanks.

    CELEBRATION TIME COME ON!

  8. Not at all surprised about being a Windrunner, but I am a little shocked that Edgedancer and Lightweaver are so close.

  13. HEY, that wasn’t meant to be all caps but sometimes if I type something fast the keyboard takes a second to catch up and does it while still in caps mode, do you guys know what I mean? Does that happen to you too? 

    Anyway :P Sorry for my absence, our house doesn’t have Internet atm and for a couple days my mom and I went to my grandparents’ house to get homework done, but then the focus was on homework, so I had blips of Internet some days but no time to really write with it.

    Also my mental health appears to be getting exponentially worse, like those graphs where it’s just flat and then starts getting higher and then gets much higher much quicker and then just ZOOMS up...that’s me right now, wheeeeeeee. 

    I’ve been trying to figure out how to do this for a long time now, but I’m bad at it haha, so maybe just bluntly throwing it out there before I let myself get distracted by catching up on what I missed is the key. 

    I need to take a break from the Shard, most specifically RPing. Or, less of a break and more of a sitting-back, I guess. I’m not leaving, I’ll be here for conversations and stuff, and please still feel free to come to me for a n y t h i n g because I will never be unwilling to help, but I need to give myself more distance because I am Not Okay right now. I need to reevaluate several things and figure out some stuff that matters to me, and frankly I’m a bit burned out. Actually, I’ve been burned out in varying degrees for months, now I’m past burned out and into burned down, or something. 

    What this means for the things I’m involved in: 

    Alleyverse = biggest change. I was so excited to write a different version of Deteca, I could not wait to get in the new her’s head, and despite the fact that I’m still very interested in her, I just...can’t write her. I am going to try to do the interaction with @18th Shard and @Sorana, because I’ve planned that with them and don’t want to disrupt their plans, but after that I don’t know how involved with those characters I can promise to be. (Same with any potential Deteca-Zokora interactions.) 

    If @bees? is still breaking out of that van (I haven’t read AMD yet so he might’ve already), I can lend some help with Myriad, maybe. If you don’t need it, I’d probably just hold you up. 

    I’m still here for TUBA if anything happens. Luckily most guild conflicts are heavily foreshadowed and also heavily IC these days, so there shouldn’t be any shenanigans where I’m instantly needed. I trust y’all to be cool if I’m not around for a day or two. (No succession wars, you hear? If I come back to a succession war at some point I’ll be very annoyed.) 

    TKND = I will try to keep an OOC presence, keep up the moderation/updating the OP/polls stuff and any discussions of where we’re going next, but Cassie posts will be along the lines of “she followed the group, she did such and such” rather than anything deep. Not that her posts are very in-depth anyway over half the time, but. Yeah. 

    KotC = who knows if they’re reading this, I think Tesh reads my status updates but does anyone else? Likely not, so I’ll copy this to their chat PM. I’m gonna have to hand off the slave trade to someone else. Raise your hand if you’re up for taking it on (the responsibility, not literally taking on the slave trade :P). I may be able to handle some of it later, and by the time we get to any epic showdowns I’d like to do some talking from Natoriana and/or Jalis. I’d also prefer if they were left mostly out of things for now so their characterization isn’t compromised; I’ll write them out or something. 

    Clearcut I can continue as usual, I think. She’s not difficult, just dialogue and a pretty simple character arc, and I’m eager to see her wielded at some point. 

    V1 = I really am working on a post to bring that back. I’m dearly sorry that it’s been dead so long, there’s no excuse, but I’m going to fix it. I hope. That will be delayed, but eventually it will happen. 

    Sharder Kahoot Club = I might be able to make some progress on this front but who knows, really? 

    Forum games = I’ll probably be around but can’t say how much 

    That cosmere Monopoly board I wanted to make = still wanna make it, but it’s a *shrug* for now 

    And I want to write more fanfiction in the future besides RP, there’s at least one series I want to do and I always have oneshots in my head because who doesn’t, but that’s after that reevaluation I mentioned. 

    Love you all. Sorry to be so abrupt. *hugs* 

  14. ...I heard something 

    Spoiler

    I must be a listener!

     

  15. My Cousin and I: questioning whether or not the Vietnam War had a Draft

    Our Grandpa: Oh it had a draft all right

  16. Today is my 1st Shardversary!!!!  It's been great!!!  As per usual, I have completely decimated a speech from... Lord of the rings... again,

     

     

    Me when I joined the Shard: I can’t do this, I’ll forget my user, I’ll take the spiked cookies, Sam.

    Me after the first while: I know. It’s all wrong. By rights I shouldn’t even be here. But I am. It’s like in the great cosmere, Mr. Frodo. The tenth pancakes that really mattered. Full of spikes and shardblades, they were. And sometimes you didn’t want to know where they came from. Because how could TUBA be real? How could the world go back to the way it was when so many cookies had been offered? But in the end, it’s only a passing thing, these spikes. Even Introduction threads  must pass. A new post will come. And when the RPs shine they will shine out the clearer. Those were the cookies that stayed with you. That meant something, even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Sharders in those stories had lots of chances of turning away spikes, only they didn’t. They kept accepting. Because they were holding on to something.

    Me when I joined the Shard: What are we holding onto, Sam?

    Sam: That the Shard is a great place to Binge, Mr. Frodo… and it’s worth fighting for.

    A special thanks to all the Mods, I really appreciate all the work you do on the shard!!!

    Thank you all for an amazing year on the Shard!!!!

  19. Today is my three year Shardivirsary! (I probably spelled that wrong... Fake English is hard).

    I have a few things to say.

    One: thanks for putting up with me. Honestly. Especially the first two years. I was a mess. I am less of a mess now, but, well, I still stink at peopleing.

    Two: thanks to all of the members of The Knights of the Cosmere and the original people of TUBA. (Potato!!!) I know a few of you are gone now, but still, thanks. I have had so much fun with both of these groups. You guys are all the best.

    Three: thanks to everyone else for being so storming awesome. You are all wonderful.

    Four: the three year mark of the KotC is next month. I have to double check that date, but it's there.

    And... 185 days until RoW! :D (Assuming I did my math correctly).

  21. I keep hearing things about discord, so I decided to just make an account, and I’m very confused. Eventually I was able to find the 17th shard community, but it was weird. :blink:

  22. I'm really happy to see, that you're following me. Thank you!^_^
