  1. This is a wee bit early, but I feel like an Ancient One is a step down from a Steel Inquisitor...

      Most ancient is from SA, the leaders of one of the countries is the Most Ancient because they are the oldest.

    Hello, friends! 

    As some of you know, I have been participating in an online speech and debate tournament the last couple of days. These tournaments usually start at 7 in the morning and, alternating every hour and a half between giving speeches and participating in debates, go until about 10 at night. It has been crazy, and I hope that I am soon to the end of it. Technically, there are two more days to go, however I will only have to complete if I break (advance).

    I will find out if I break in debate in about fifteen minutes, so I'm a little bit nervous about that, especially considering that I've only ever broken in debate once, and that was last year at an abbreviated tournament where half of the people who broke didn't continue competing to finals, but just got an instant invite to regionals (but then covid happened and I ended up never getting to go). So.... again, I'm nervous. If I break that'd be freaking awesome, but at the same time it would be very stressful and terrifying.

    As far as speech goes, I still have two more preliminary rounds to get done today and I won't see if I'll break there until tomorrow.

    So anyways.... sorry I really haven't been on much, but the last couple of days have been extremely stressful. Online tournaments are like normal tournaments but with all of the fun ripped out of them and added stress...

      I’d say based on the fact that she hasn’t been on in a while, she made it.

      I feel you. I’ve done two online speech meets now and have another one tomorrow. They are super stressful, especially since this is my first year.

  5. Well. Here I am. As you might be able to tell, I have made the very difficult decision to basically stop using the Shard. My life has just gotten too hectic, and I was spending way to much time on here instead of other things that I needed to get done. So, I've decided that I'm just going to check in every month or so, and maybe post some of the art that I've worked on in the past little while.

    As you might have seen, I've changed my name and there my cover photo and profile pic are both made by me. I have been spending almost all of my free time doing animation, and have some really fun projects that I'm working on. I am pretty close with the rock bud that I was working on a while back, and I'm planning to have another stormlight scene done by my shardiversery. 

    I have also been working on my book, and it's coming along nicely; I've done a lot of worldbuilding and some writing. 

    Also piano. At this time, it's kinda hard to keep up with piano, but I'm really trying to play at least an hour each day and I'm having fun doing that as always.

    My Cross Country season still hasn't started, but we have a tentative date for a meet set for mid February, so hopefully that happens.

    Ummm. I guess dramawise, I've gone on some dates, went to a homecoming, and it looks like (fingers crossed) that prom will be happening this year. That just reminded me. I saw while looking over my brothers shoulder one day that @DramaQueen was back! How's it going?!

    I guess that's all. I'll be on the Shard for the next hourish, and then check again tomorrow, but after that I probably won't be on until mid February. 

  6. Sometimes I just want to hug everyone and give you all hot choc because I is sadness

    *hugs the Shard*

  7. I’m a Bondsmith y’all! Uhh... @Ghanderflaffle and @revelryintheart, y’all are best friends now.

    Also I just realized that “underly low” and “overly low” both mean the same thing and now my brain hurts.

  8. If anybody needs me I’ll be sitting here, on my own page, waiting for the perfect time to screenshot my own rep for the novelty of catching 1337 and cherishing it forever. :P

      In all seriousness, thank you all so much. I never dreamed I would find a place where I was more than tolerated by most people, but here I’m not only tolerated, by liked. Thanks for being the best community I could’ve ever joined.

    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!

      There’s also a reason I normally call her Squirt. She’s finally growing a little, but she used to be tiny.

      She would sleep in my hood for hours. Silly Harmony. (Her siblings are Ruin and Preservation :P) She really is dumb though. This is at least the third time she’s been stepped on or kicked by a horse. You’d think by now she would stay away from them. She’s lucky she’s my favorite, it makes her spoiled.

      She’s almost fully grown now (and has a broken leg because she’s an idiot), but she used to to this.

  19. Eyyy good news! I participated in my first ever speech meet yesterday and I won 5th place in the humorous category! I’m finally finding things I’m good at and truly enjoy this year and leaving behind the things that were more “toxic.” (In relation to the other people) My only wish is that I had done these things freshman year so I would’ve had more time to enjoy them. Oh well, I’ll enjoy them for the year and a half I have left.

      It was humorous prose, so I’m guessing that's interpretive.
