You want chocolate, he can get you all the chocolate you need. For the right price of course.

So, I got to see a brilliant community theater production of Jekyll & Hyde; the Musical tonight. Man, that was cool. Also, really tragic.

Would you say it's worse than Magic: The Musical, or just as good? :shifty:

Well, I usually judge a musical by the score, performance and casting, so the comparison is moot until I see/hear those aspects of Magic: The Musical. But as far as writing goes, I'd say it was nearly as good.

Oops, I meant Squallmonger doesn't look like anything. Yeah Sailmonger makes sense as human.

I have very fond memories of Squallmonger. Back during Urza's Block/Masques Block standard (a.k.a. The Dark Ages), I used to run Squallmonger as a 2-of in my Stompy deck. With all the mana you could generate off Gaea's Cradle, Squallmonger was perfect for doing those last 4-5 points of damage if the board stalled. And she could beat down in a pinch, too.

I kinda want to develop Squallmonger into a full race for some plane somewhere now. I love the weird random designs from old Magic art.

Also hi I haven't been around lately. I've been poking my head in periodically but I've been kind of too busy/overwhelmed by life to comment on anything or read in detail >_< Sorry. I'm working on my second thesis chapter and it looks like my first chapter might need a full rewrite, which y'all know tends to happen with my first drafts of stories too so not a huge surprise there. Anyway so basically I've been drowning in academia basically, but I'm still around, just... distracted. >_< Gonna try to catch up on some stuff maybe next weekish? and I plan to prioritize returning the PMs of the people involved in [project title redacted] since there's a lot of cool ideas bouncing around and I want to keep sort of working on that.

So glad to hear from you, Keeper!

Don't be afraid to remind your thesis who the boss is. Point a finger at the computer and say: "I'm the boss of you, thesis! You obey me!"

I can't prove it makes the writing any easier, but it certainly made me feel better.

I'm just going to make the comment here since there's nothing up for vote this week:

I'm going to consider Donagut and Blink as "In" even with only 2 meaningful votes, because the story which they're attached to, Eye for an Eye, will be counted as "In" with 3 meaningful votes. If anyone has any issues with this please let me know.

Hopefully everyone will see Eye to Eye on this issue...

Nah, if the story gets in, the characters are implicitly along for the ride.

and I plan to prioritize returning the PMs of the people involved in [project title redacted] since there's a lot of cool ideas bouncing around and I want to keep sort of working on that.

I wonder if I'm one of those people.

This is true. However, often there is information in a character's dossier that is not covered in their stories, and at times, that information could potentially cause a problem for voters. I seem to remember a time when everybody "yelled" at me for assuming my dossiers on Arbagoth and Helkavin would be acceptable, even though both of those planes were "in" by virtue of "Planes of the Dual-Walkers" and "The Fallen Pharaoh" respectively. Although it's more work for us, I think it might be a dangerous to assume that dossiers are fine just because the characters are in the archives. We may need to look at dossiers as separate works.

Of course, for our purposes here, I'm fine allowing these two in... :D

I'd like to take a look at them but I also realistically won't have time for a while, and also realistically don't foresee any problems...

More evidence of high level M:EM corruption??? Probably!

(Oh also I think I probably never commented on Ruwin's orc story >_< Dammit. Ruwin, your orc story was really good! I liked it a lot!)

I can think of at least one person in particular.

That was me! First time getting my "question" posted (not that it was an important one).

Alright, a word of caution up front: This is going to be one of my dispatches from Feels City (population: Orc).

So please consider this your trigger warning that I'm about to get all emotional up in here.

You can't say I didn't warn you. :)
