Yo I'm probably going to stop posting on the site in a bit. If someone wants to find me I'm ZombieX with a pikachu avatar. I'll probably accept your friend request if I recognize you or you are part of the NGA steam group Cato runs.

That first video was mega-distracting because I don't recognize those games but they look cool.

@ mjack: Wassup man? Just tired or something? What about 3CM??

Preferred Pronoun Set: she
here's an album with at least one song that i really like on it

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bm-Ijm5X84w

i am testing something

it worked.

you have no business being morose

lately i have been having trouble waking up i think i need a reason

i finished the red commons in my set

i would like to be programming more often than i am

if i go to sleep without a reason to get up i will surely sleep for a long time again

i am reading an uncomfortable manga about someone who judges others

i like manga that portray people in unrealistically dark ways that sort of convey the idea that humans are horrible horrible people

i left my computer on and steam noises woke me up

i watched manga the anime with rubik and niklor and aoi hana with niklor and mango

the reason non-commerical industries don't exist is because commercial industries use force to remove non-commerical industries from existence.

i feel sick

March 25th

I will start dating my posts

i feel cold

i resubscribed to wow but idk i don't feel like doing anything lately

there are not many people online at this time

it is still march 25th

i am reading a 4-koma ecchi comedy manga about doujinshi artists

now i am reading a manwha about a person who can bring back things from his dreams i am not too fond of this kind of story

his dreams are composed entirely of things that he has seen destroyed or something. also there are spooky fuzzy people

sometimes he finds spooky fuzzy things and when he brings them back into reality they turn into innoculous objects but one time he brought something back and it turned into what was probably an aborted fetus so he stopped doing that.

he apparently spends 15 hours asleep per day. he used to bring back books from the dream to read but now he just reads them there. he broke his favourite cup and thought "i should get that back from the dream" but then he decided he would just use it there. it is probably foreshadowing of some variety.

the romantic interest probably died i imagine they will meet in the dream and he will try to bring her back to life

he found her

he offered to bring her back he says the biggest thing he has brought back is a chair and he has never bought anything alive back

they are resolving some misunderstandings in their relationship

he is pulling her out of the dream

looked like it worked, he resurrected the dead. I wonder what will happen next

she asked him to ressurect her little sister who also died

this chapter started with a trigger warning for suicide attempts i am spoilered

he does not think he can ressurect her since he did not know her in life but they are discussing how it could be done

she is planning to kill herself so she can find her sister in the dream but he does not want her to do that and also he has a money filled with massive amounts of cash that he found over time while dreaming

he sleeps for 15 hours a day because he has a disease and eventually he will be asleep almost permanently. he is saving up money to keep him alive when that happens so he can spend the remainder of his life dreaming i suppose.

i have probably been sleeping for around 13 hours a day recently

he is wandering around the dream calling out the sister's name. a fuzzy shadow person started following him but he isn't sure that it is her so he is going to bring it along with him on his search.

He found the sister because it was wearing a dress that her older sister used to wear when she played with the guy as a kid. The sister was being taken around by a fuzzy shadow person, also i have no idea who the fuzzy shadow person who was following him was. I get the feeling they're setting us up for a twist but maybe its just unimportant. story is almost over though.

Its a minor flash forward, he saved the sister and now the romantic interest is talking to him about her past.

The ending was both kind of vague and kind of spooky. He thinks that the shadow person who was following him was hoping that it could follow him back to the real world. He thinks it said "what a shame" in a spooky shadow voice before he pulled the sister back to reality. He seems to believe that there are some eldritch mysteries in his dreamscape.

what a shame


i said i didn't really like this kind of story but i liked some of the themes. I do not want to compare an amateur manwha author to lovecraft but there were some similarities. I really liked the way he interacted with this world on a daily basis that is implied to have terribly mysteries and he just barely brushes against them over the course of the storyline and then retreats, with no real concept of what he brushed against. and then the story ends, leaving the viewer to wonder. I think I will see if this author did anything else.

this is them apparently https://www.mangaupdates.com/authors.html?id=21685 the first four chapters of an ongoing series called matchstick twenty and the first three chapters of a seventy-two chapter series called zero points alliance are the only translated works. too bad.

zero points alliance looked interesting but i decided i wasn't enough of a masochist to read the start of matchstick twenty

i wonder what i should do

i resubscribed to WoW but i do not feel like playing it i guess i wasted by gold i can probably get most of it back just doing kazaak weekly probably

despair

mown is online

NGA is waking up

i am reading a manga about some kids who were kidnapped and tortured and then 8 years later became similar sorts of criminals. I don't really like this kind of story either. I might get a bowl of cereal and watch an episode of tutu and then sleep.

that oatmeal was not fantastic but tutu was good. I will leave steam open so that the noises will wake me up.

steam noises did not wake me up i slept for 13 hours it snowed again

men's rights are important

it will be march 26th in four hours

it will be march 26th in three hours

i am fighting blackhand

i am going to play league which is probably one of the worst ideas but it sounds like my friends do not want to play with me anyway so maybe it will work out hopefully rubik will not stick with them anyway though

it is patching slowly i hope rubik does not leave me /o/

March 26th

I feel frustration

league of legends did not go well but now i am watching anime with rubik ronfar wanted to do something but idk if it will work out

my computer crashed and rubik is afk i am hoping we will be able to watch more anime before he sleeps

rubik probably fell asleep i guess i will play WoW a little

i am alt-tabbing in an lfr to type this i wonder if i am a bad person

lfr is draining i am not half done yet but i only need three more books

i hope mown gets on soon he was up pretty late last night

NGA will wake up soon

there was blood in my stool

i am burnt out on lfr so i will probably stop for now, i might do archimonde before the week ends, i only need one more book.

mown is awake. I ended up doing archimonde, we wiped twice but it was a nice group. Got my last book. Probably going to get my ring and then sleep, or at least see if there's much work left to get the ring.

i have reached the 702nd item level

good night

my dad woke me up and then we went to have coffee with my sister and look at the sad lobsters at the deli and then we came home.

i would like to watch anime with niklor

i am fundamentally very sleepy

i will idle in this xat chat for a while, i did my duelyst dailies and now i will do wow dailies

march 27th

we have wiped a few times on this mythic dungeon and replaced a couple members it is a good time

i watched an episode of inuyasha with rubik my eyes are without focus

i will probably stop posting here as often soon

i leveled a lock to 20 for the hs thing, it took 2 hours with looms.

this xat is nice and i am destroyed

i feel so rtiewsd

march 28th

i've got nothin'

i can touch my eyeball without flinching and it kind of freaks me out. i wasn't able to do that before maybe my eye is becoming numb

i am suffering

march 29th

i cried

i am going crazy i need to do something

april 1st

i said some embarassing things here

Um ... I’m not entirely sure if this is really the right place to ask this but I don’t think it warrants a thread of its own so here goes:

What is up with the pronoun and identity thing that you are asked about upon registration? This isn’t something that I’ve ever encountered when registering an account at a forum or anywhere else, really. Is the site’s administrator a tumblrina or what’s the history behind this? ’Cause that’s the only place where I know this from (via hearsay anyway): Tumblr.

Here's the thread viewtopic.php?f=13&t=4833 but basically it was decided that instead of the old male or female, that it would go this way for those who chose not be defined in either or terms.

So I guess my hunch was somewhat going in the right direction. Thanks. Good to know that there’s a fair number of special snowflakes around.

When my old mouse finally bit the dust a couple of years ago I replaced it with a Sharkoon FireGlider and it hasn’t let me down since. It’s got all you need in a gaming mouse: DPI switch, programmable buttons, ergonomic design et cetera. Inexpensive, too! Depending on where you hail from you might have slightly cheaper (due to less shipping being required) but equally capable regional alternatives though since this one is made by a German company. But I mean “even” at $35 this is worth every penny.

It's not that bad. I think I know of three MtFs and one genderqueer person, and I'm sure there's a few more scattered around, but I don't know of anyone who makes too big of a deal out of it all that often when it's not topical. Which I'd imagine the identity fields help with, by reducing the need to correct people all the time. Besides, they're pretty fun.
Although I would say that the environment is generally rather, how to put, "progressive", for what it's worth.
I can't really speak on behalf of Magic Duels though, I have no idea how that section is like.

If he thinks someone asking for a bit of courtesy and respect in being identified the way they wish makes them a 'special snowflake'....he'll fit with others in the Duels section >.>

I've always heard awful things about it, but maybe I should check it out then.

Nope. I think what makes someone a special snowflake is basing one’s entire identity around one’s thoughts on what one’s gender is. I wrote this post after searching again for answer to my question. While doing that I stumbled upon a comment of someone on this forum who complained that having only the option to display one’s preferred pronouns fails to reflect transgenderism for instance.
Like, why do you care so much that people know that you are transgender? Don’t you want to be considered male/female (to which end the pronouns would suffice) since that is what you deem yourself? Why make sure that people know that you were once (apparently wrongly) considered to be [gender] but now consider yourself [gender]? Why not leave it at the latter [gender] in the first place?

This kind of mindset is what I vaguely associate with the term “attention whoring”. Oh and don’t get me started on people whose notion of identity goes completely off the rails (e.g. nonhuman). Hence that tumblr remark.

nonstandard pronouns are not a joke, nor are they particularly fringe. i personally know several people who go by gender-neutral ("they") pronouns. asking for pronouns is a pretty standard practice in the LGBTQ community, it isn't a "tumblr" thing.

A standard practice in the LGBTQ community, sure. Is no goblins allowed a community centered around that? No? So can you understand my surprise with this (in these non-LGBTQ circles) non-standard practice? Also, where did I say that non-standard pronouns are a joke?

Woah.

A- I don't care. I have no horse in the argument, but I see no reason to deny people the courtesy of addressing them correctly, and even less for snarky remarks directed at them for wanting that.

B- The LGBTQ community isn't some little pocket dimension. Its just people, who are free to become involved in whichever hobbies they like. That includes Magic and D&D. You don't get to join an online community that isn't specifically focused at LGBTQ and say "Leave all LGBTQ business at the door, this place isn't for that". They're people. Places are kind of automatically LGBTQ communities by default of letting whoever wants to, join. Unless you're expressing that you specifically want this to not be one? In which case, don't let the door hit you on the way out.

the LGBTQ community has a lot of overlap with the gaming community for some reason. I never really understood why. If there's a forum centered around gaming (like this one), there's probably a disproportionate amount of LGBTQ people in it.

It's not off-topic as long as it's LGBT business, because we're an inclusive community.
