, Reading thread The War Room III: From British Invasion to British Implosion
  • yo! your link in the war room is kaput (for me at least). Thought you might wanna know, it sounded interesting

    Posted by john_marston

  • Ahh Redwall! Mossflower is top 3 along with Pearls of Lutra and Marlfox. Also love Triss and Mattimeo. But it's so hard to choose!

    Posted by Lady Sunshine

    • Oh God I fight every day with myself on what's in my Top 5 or whatnot haha. Sometimes, just to be easy, I say the three Martin books are the best in the series, because all three are awesome. I think Legend of Luke is one of the most underrated books. I also really love The Bellmaker and Pearls of Lutra. But Salamandastron was fantastic, and I'm currently enjoying the heck out of Rakkety Tam. So who knows, I'll never decide what are my favorites lol.

      Posted by Mirren

    • I agree with you about Legend of Luke. My old copy which has been misplaced was so worn half the cover had ripped off and it had food and life stains on almost every page. I used to hide out in my bathroom as a kid and read in there for an hour because my mom hated how often I would read them XD

      Posted by Lady Sunshine

    • Perfect hiding place hahaha. I owe my love of reading to Redwall. I didn't like reading as a kid, but after watching the cartoon of Redwall and Mattimeo when I was 11, I decided to check out the books. I became obsessed with the series, and started reading other books more regularly.

      Posted by Mirren

    • Redwall definitely got me more into reading as well. Honestly have read these books more than anything else out there, except maybe Harry Potter...

  • *gives Mirren a copy of A Link to the Past in mint condition for the SNES*

    • I have no idea why I warranted such generosity, but I will graciously accept it.

      Posted by Mirren

  • Thank you so much!! The Sabres are playing tonight, hopefully they win!

    Posted by Winnie

    • I'm going to see Aquaman tonight, so I won't be able to watch the game, but it'd be awesome if they beat the defending champs!

      Posted by Mirren

    • Let me know how it is! I’ve been looking forward to that movie forever!

      Posted by Winnie

    • Will do!

      Posted by Mirren

    • Just got out of the theater. It was a blast! Super fun movie.

      Posted by Mirren

    • Ahhh okay now I wanna see it! Can’t wait to see Khal Drogo in merman form!

      Posted by Winnie

  • :3

    Posted by Cody

    • For the record, I didn't ignore this out of spite. It's just that the last time you posted a random emoji to my wall and I inquired about it, you left me hanging. PEOPLE DON'T FORGET.

      Posted by Mirren

    • :3

      Posted by Cody

  • It sounds like I need to give OoS another playthrough!

    Posted by Lady Sunshine

    • Yeah I can't put my finger on it, but for some reason I really enjoy the game. I've always enjoyed the Oracles, though. I feel they're two of the most underrated games in the series. It might be because of how much I like Holodrum and Labrynna, and just the stories, in general. The Mangas were my favorite adapations before Twilight Princess's came out.

      Posted by Mirren

    • I liked them both a lot too but I've only played through them once each. Ages, then Seasons. The stories were definitely interesting and fleshed out. Did you find playing Ages vs Seasons first had any impact on which you enjoyed more?

      Posted by Lady Sunshine

    • I played Seasons first, then Ages. I remember preferring Ages as a lad, but that's changed over time.

      Posted by Mirren

    • Hmm. I played Ages first, then Seasons. Dunno, I'll really have to play through again, my memory on the games is fairly spotty anyway xD

      Posted by Lady Sunshine

  • Wow it’s Mirren from The Missing Link

    Posted by Cody

  • Hey, I just read the Price of Courage. Great piece. That's a beautiful and thought-provoking way to look at the series, and probably the reason why it sticks with me so many years later, even as my tastes change. Thanks for that perspective!

    Posted by GregariousTree

  • Yo, nice job with your feature article.

    Posted by Max N.

    • Thanks buddy, much appreciated! I know you wrote some very thought-provoking pieces earlier this year, so I need to finally sit down and give those a read. I'm sure they're great.

      Posted by Mirren

  • Mirren you get your face out of the Negative thread, it’s bad juju for our team. What team? The Bills Mafia of course. Chin up and remember at least GoT didn’t get... oh wait.. and Spyro... maybe you’re onto something..

    Posted by Winnie

    • Today sucked. -_- I'm going to bed.

      Posted by Mirren

    • Oh no what happened?!

      Posted by Winnie

    • Just a little overwhelmed right now. This was one of those weeks where I was hoping to get a lot of writing and editing done for my books, in addition to productive drawing sessions, coverage for the pop culture website I write for, etc. and in very short time, I ended up being roped into some obligation or event almost every night this week. Not sure I'll be able to get a lot of my personal projects done unless I go hermit-mode on Saturday, which is very likely, at this point. I just have a very loaded schedule to close out the year, and I'm not sure at the moment how I'll handle it all. I need to better organize myself and make some serious improvements to my time management skills.

      Posted by Mirren

    • You’ll get through it! You’re smart and NY people are fast-paced. If anyone’s got this it’s you.

      I’ve got something a bit similar going on, and at the moment I’m just trying to take it one day at a time. And keeping a planner and crossing things off my list helps!

      Posted by Winnie

    • Thank you :D It's much appreciated. I try to plan things with a little more structure, now, so if I make a habit of that I might just figure this out.

      Posted by Mirren

  • HEY! How's MHGU coming along for you?

    Posted by EmptyStar

    • I'm really enjoying it! I honestly wasn't a huge fan of the original Gen, but G Rank is making all the difference for me, this time. I just beat Atahl-Ka last night for the first time. Still got a ton of quests I want to do, though.

      Posted by Mirren

    • Likewise! Maybe play tonight?

      Posted by EmptyStar

    • I actually just got done with a pretty long session lol. But I'm down to play any night the rest of the week except Friday!

      Posted by Mirren

    • I'm around now if you want!

      Posted by EmptyStar

    • I'm down for any time tonight before 8:20 EST.

      Posted by Mirren

  • where is 2003 master race

    Posted by Lady Sunshine

    • It sounded a little elitist xD. Also the ZU Remember When thread reminded me of the days when someone (i.e, me) had to post whore their way to a custom rank.

      Posted by Mirren

    • Oh wow. I semi remember that.
      I can’t even read your whole custom rank now so I idk what it even says XD (is that what it says)

      Posted by Lady Sunshine

    • Wait. Seriously? Son of a...

      Posted by Mirren

    • It's supposed to say "I remember when you had to have 1000 posts to type something here". Can a CR be so long that it doesn't entirely show up? Because I've had this for like, a month, bahahahaha.

      Posted by Mirren

    • Yeah they can - if you look at it on your profile it says “I remember when you had to...”
      and the rest is veiled in mystery.

      Nice.

      Posted by Lady Sunshine

  • Omfg this game is a nightmare. And it’s IN THE OP! Come on guys!

    Posted by Winnie

    • I mean, it's preseason, and Shady isn't playing, so I'm not freaking out...but that offensive line has me legitimately concerned. Poor Allen was swarmed every play.

      Posted by Mirren

    • Seriously! And this is how rookie QBs get ruined forever. I just hate it don’t get me started. Also I’m at the hotel gym and there’s like 4 other dudes here, and I’m hoarding the remote on my bike so they can’t escape watching this nightmare! Bahaha!

      Posted by Winnie

    • Two more touchdowns come ON.

      Posted by Winnie

  • Happy birthday!!

    Posted by Serenade of a Star!

  • Happy birthday, Mirren. Hope its a good one.

    Posted by Guinea

  • Happy birthday, Mirren-sama! Hope you are having a wonderful day!

    Posted by EzloSpirit

    • I am! Exhausted from a very late night for a good friend's wedding, but enjoying the day nonetheless haha. Thank you!

      Posted by Mirren

  • Jeff, in a clan :o Were you ever in a clan back in the day, because I always remember you being clanless?

    Posted by Pietro

    • I was originally in Farore, back when sadida, bobslob, andi, Mr. Wonderful, Irish Samurai, etc. were all in there. Like I said to Winnie, I have no idea why I eventually "left". I just never bothered to retake the test. You can call it the ultimate apathy haha

      Posted by Mirren

  • Why aren’t you in a clan? And by that I mean why aren’t you in Din?

    Posted by Winnie

    • Because I'm definitely Farore, at heart.

      Posted by Mirren

    • Hahahaha. I was in Farore way back in the day, and I cannot tell you for the life of me what happened that I "left". I can only assume that the clan rosters got jacked up during a forum reset, and I just never bothered to rejoin. I've contemplated taking the Clan Test again, maybe your prodding finally gets it done for me xD

      Posted by Mirren

    • Sending it to you now, no pressure just for funsies

      Posted by Winnie

  • It would be cool to do an Upstate ZU meetup! A lot of ZUers are there actually, pick your favorite bar haha

    Posted by Winnie

  • Thanks for nominating me as most inspirational.

    Posted by Serenity

  • :o

    Posted by Cody

  • Congrats on your book!!

    Posted by Winnie

    • Thanks, love!

      Posted by Mirren

    • Is it a series? Can I get it on Kindle?

      Posted by Winnie

    • Yes and yes haha. It's a trilogy, with the second book coming out hopefully in October/November, and the third book coming out around this time next year.

      Posted by Mirren

  • Feeling inspired to write some articles for the site? :D

    Posted by Cody

    • I have a few ideas I've wanted to do for a while, but I've kept putting them off. I need to get on those. I'm about to have a crazy couple of weeks what with a novel being released, my city's comic con, and E3 coverage for the website I work at, but I'll definitely put something together this summer.

      Posted by Mirren

    • Are you going to E3? Or just reporting it

      Posted by Cody

    • I won't be going, myself, but other members from my team will be attending. I swear it, SOMEDAY I'm meeting up with you and the ZU crew at an event.

      Posted by Mirren

    • Come to a PAX convention and there’s usually a few ZU staff doing a panel nowadays

      Posted by Cody

  • Oh man my little writing padawon all grown up.

    Posted by Kishin

    • Dammit I've missed you, man hahaha. How the frig have you been?

      Posted by Mirren

  • Mirren, I am slowly remembering so much from the past. But wow I want to say like you are all grown up. Ok that sounded crazy! I didn’t realize I was gone throughout my entire training for my job these past 5 years. If ZU has an app I think I would use it more. I lurke a lot of Facebook. Blame that.

    Posted by Fianna

    • Hahaha nothing wrong with that! Admittedly, I've fluctuated between being absent and being active around here for most of the last several years; at one point I was gone for an entire year, or close to it. Life happens. And, I know, some days even I'm amazied that I'm now 27 (28 in July) haha. I hope things have been simply wonderful for you. I wish I had connected with more people from here over the years on other social media places like Facebook. To say the least, I have a lot of fond memories chatting with you and everyone else

  • Hello! You had asked what I am studying in University. I am Majoring in History and Political Science

    Posted by Dr.Gazooks

    • Awesome! I was very partial to History courses when I was in college, so I'll definitely give you two thumbs up for your major choices. There's a lot of different fields you can head into with a History or Political Science degree. I wish you the very best of luck!

      Posted by Mirren

  • Having fun seeing all the old members? :D

    Posted by Cody

  • Hey Mirren! I stopped by to say thank you and noticed you’re from Buffalo. Are you in the Bills Mafia?!

    Posted by Winnie

    • Yes in the sense that I'm a fan and follow the team closely, no in the sense that I very rarely attend the games haha. I feel like anyone who loves the team is automatically part of the Mafia, but I'm not quite a die hard, like the dudes you see tailgating (and jumping through tables). As much as I love football, I've always been a bigger hockey guy, so the Sabres are 'my team'. Even though they're the absolute worst right now lol

      Posted by Mirren

    • Being a Buffalo sports fan is so hard. Agreed, I’m part of the Bills Mafia in spirit but I don’t jump through tables. And the Sabres.. have had it rough since the Hasek and Peca days were over. No Stanley Cup this year then?

      Posted by Winnie

    • Stanley Cup? We'll be lucky to hit 25 wins at this rate xD Especially with Eichel out for a while. I still say the Tank to get him was worth it, but our last GM screwed up basically everything but the tanking part. There's still a lot of rebuilding left to do.

      Posted by Mirren

  • You haven't met your "being bugged by a staff member to join something" quota yet, so you should join ZU's Discord :3 I leik cool peoplez there.
