I have a feeling that we'll get the release date for Animal Crossing tomorrow and everything will be right with the universe.
I'm so hyped I could cry.
YOU GOT MY FRIGGIN' HOPES UP! *weeps very noisily*
What exactly... I haven't seen the Direct.
Are you... telling me ... there was NO ANIMAL CROSSING NEWS?!
No no no no no NOPE that can't be it.
Nope. I'll save you the delayed grief and tell you that now. There's some interesting stuff in there, but the AC stuff is literally the only reason I fast-forwarded my way through most of that video. No Pokémon, either, but that was a longer shot.
OKAY! The Link's Awakening remake. All is forgiven.
Congrats on your win Ezlo! You deserve it!
Aww, thanks, Winnie! You, too!
When the next Writing Contest starts I'm going to tag every active writer I know of in a PM and try to get the ball rolling.
The Writing Contest is so awesome, I wish more people would get involved.
Don't worry; I tend to get most of the submissions in the final week. I've already gotten a second one, so this contest will proceed no matter what.
Yay! Thanks again for doing the contest. It's my favorite social activity on ZU.
Aww, that's so cool! Happy to be of service!
So what’s wasted time about?
Not sure yet! The title refers to the wasteland setting. Maybe there will be a monster encounter. Maybe someone will need help getting home.
There's a kajillion directions this could go in, and I'm open to them all. (Probably lol.) I want this to be a story led by more than just myself.
Alright I’ll figure out which character I’ll use. Unless you have a preference. My list of characters are in my sig but are in short:
1) A team of a princess with powerful, uncontrollable fire powers, her ghost of a twin sister, an overprotective ice knight and asshole baby dragon.
2) A bastard prince who is a stepford smiler and his wolf bro.
3) A telepath with dual personalities and ability to control dreams.
4) A bounty hunter who wants to save his mother from cancer. Young, scrappy and constantly over his head.
5) Bounty hunter older sister and a prostitute.
6) A demigod of Cronus trying to find Pandora’s Box to keep it from being opened again. Has limited control over time. Travels with Athena and Aphrodite.
7) Cassandra of Troy but has been reborn and works as an assassin and thief.
Digimon fan character
9) Fallen archangel and demon hunter. Do not trust her to cook. Burns ceral.
10) A Shishi and adorable. Typically can be found with an azdaja who is a chaotic evil being by nature but this playboy asshole is trying really hard to be lawful good.
11) An Auror with a superhero complex.
12) A half elf with an eye of truth and a desire to just die.
13) A Roma bard with a strong belief in God and no sense of direction.
14) A kitsune who after being enslaved and tortured for hundreds of years enacts his own twisted karma against humans. Enjoys mental torture.
15) A half-zombie from Civil War era New Orleans. Racist and homophobic, she is cursed to remain stagnant until the curse keeping her as such is broken allowing her to grow old and die. Which is unfortunate because she’s someone who genuinely tries to help even while being an asshole about it.
Wow, that's quite a selection! I don't have a preference either way!
I have more characters too who aren’t in ToC xDD But wasteland … hmm … might be interesting if it’s a bad end timeline. Gives me more reason to fix I think Aphrodite.
Also it might be easier to talk about the plot with a discussion thread in the RPD.
Creating the thread now!
Before I forget to ask again, what does "OWP" stand for? I looked around for a definition, but I couldn't find one.
awesome! now I know your birthday. ha.
I mean, it's on my profile, but yay!
I know but usually I don't look up members birthdays until that day. now I can prepare
Should I be scared? lol
be afraid. BE VERY AFRAID
Hey how long does it take for a volunteer application to be read
Volunteer application for what?
For the website. I want to work on
Oh, I'm not sure. I can ask to see if anyone has read it.
The head of the Guides team doesn't know who you are based on your forum username, which is what I gave him. He suggests sending a follow-up.
Nani? Er, what?
You're an inspiration! That's what! :'P
Huh? Wha? What did I inspire? Should I be worried?
No, I'm just being a goof
Oh. Well, that's a fun thing to inspire in people. I am proud of my prowess when it comes to the ancient art of derping.
Pew pew? ʕ•ٹ•ʔ
pew pew (･◡･)
Get in the bag, Nebby!
Did you mean the best episode of the whole eleventh season?
I love him in ways I can't explain - have done for almost three years.
How did I just now see the ZU Podcast got rebooted?! That's awesome!!
Haha, that's okay! Yeah, we're really back! Hope you like what we've been working on!
Oh, and if you ever want to contribute a segment, just let me know, and we'll talk!
It's great! The nostalgia definitely hit hard when I first started listening. Honestly, I would absolutely love to contribute a segment.
Reading your abort me really does guve me +5 to cuteness :3
Is that really you?
we need to buff you
i CAN tell that is a yes, us at game freak do.
Link wears a hat.
Indeed, he does! At least most of the time!
I miss his hat tbh. I hope they give it back to him in his next adventure.
You can find his hat! The Cap of the Wild, I believe it is called. You have to complete all 120 non-DLC Shrines first, though... >.>
I know, but it's not guaranteed so I'm kinda just toughing it out. Do you think it hurt when he fell from Skyloft?
Only if he didn't use the Sailcloth!
As you should. What's up?
Nothing much! Just overseeing post-production on the next podcast episode. How's your weekend going?
It's been pretty uneventful tbh. Probably going to play BotW though; I restarted it recently for reasons.
Very much so. My thirteen-year-old self is really happy cause you can undress Link.
I am sorry that it has been a while since I messaged you last. I had it in my mind to, certainly. In addition, I very much wanted to reply to the MOTM thread when you had earned that, but I have been suffering from much depression.
I am not making excuses, it is however, the truth. There have been times when I have not felt like doing much of anything, even when on the board, it appears as though I am content. Sometimes depression can be a thing that is rather simple to hide.
Also, I have been sick going on three weeks now, though, I believe I will fully recover.
I have spent much of my time in bed, however, so I am quite looking forward to things returning to normal for me.
I have recently been thinking about you, and I wonder how you have been.
I hope you have been well.
I think that soon I will be able to work again with the things I love the most such as spending time outside, working on my art projects, photography, and talking with my loved ones.
Thank you for being you, Ezlo.
Take good care,
Aww, thanks for the message, Tead! Sorry to hear that you've been going through some rough times, but I'm glad to hear that you are feeling optimistic now. No need to apologize for taking some time off from being one of the most active members on ZU; self-care is far more important than posting in the MotM thread.
I love double post because they allow for me the chance to share something extra, something nice.
I hope that you feel the same or similar about them as I do.
I hope to see you around the board, Ezlo.
With the Holidays nearing, I hope for the best for you and yours.
What will you be doing?
Haha, I've never thought about double-posts like that before. Probably because I am so used to them being strictly outlawed here like they were in the olden days.
I don't know our holiday plans yet. The past couple of years, I've had Thanksgiving with my father and my brother. And I'd light the Hanukkah candles with my mother (since my dad always forgot). But other than that, we haven't done much.
How about you?
You are going to do great on your tests tomorrow and Friday! You’ve got this!
Aww, thanks! Actually, I just have a Japanese oral exam tomorrow, for which I am terrified, and a 6-page essay due on Friday, of which I have written very nearly one page.
Not my finest week. But thanks for the encouragement!
I just listened to the podcast, great job! Looking forward to the next one!
Thanks so much! That's the first piece of feedback we've gotten from outside the team, and I really appreciate it!
We'll get the next one out as soon as we can!
Ooh, ooh, "The Mainframe of Heaven", be sure not to lose it!
...I think that's all I've got, honestly.
I just sent you a friend request on the Switch. I use my real name (James) on there.
Cool! I'll accept it the next time I use my Switch.
EzloSpirit congrats again on being ZUer of the month! Also I love your avatar!
Thanks, Winnie! I love my avatar, too; Hestu is best forest fairy besides Togepi!
I like your avatar, too! Riza was one of my favorite FMA characters!
I haven't gotten a new VM on my wall in almost a month, so I'm leaving one for myself.
Hi, self! How's it cookin'?
It's cookin' extra crispy, thanks! I'm hanging out with the neko-chan today, and he's so cute!
That's wonderful! Have fun, and give him lots of pet-pets for me!
Nice catching up!
Keep it real, yo!
This is the most heartfelt conversation I have ever seen transpire between one person and themselves.
What do we do now?
Hey Ezlo! I want to say thanks for creating the Writing Contest. That was very cool of you to do, and its really nice!
Thanks! I'm actually just continuing an old tradition that unfortunately died out a few years ago during my absence. I used to enter them, myself, and always enjoyed the inspiration that they allotted me.
Happy to hear you like them! The next one starts on Sunday. I already created the thread; it's just waiting, hidden, for the right time...!
I know what I'm doing Sunday then! lol
Your services are required by the Nayru Clan! Check Nayru's Excellent Eccentric Evil plans and Chaos Creation Corner !
Do you have access to the lodge? I was going to make a thread on there for our "Splatclub"!
I already made a thread in Nayru called "SplatooNayru" (lol).
Oh yeah, we could use that!
I started a conversation with you guys for Splatoon if you want to check that out...
I think you accidentally closed it so we can't respond. :O
Idiot! Sorry I really didn't mean to. It's open now BTW.
RealmWings is on board now, but is wondering when we want to play. I said 2 o'clock UK time. What are you thinking?
That really depends on which day. XD Again, though, I was thinking of sometime this weekend, since I work full-time during the week. And if you're in GMT...I don't get home during the week until 8:30 PM, your time. (Timezones are the worst!)
I know! I don't have much planned for the weekend so we could do it then.
Hey I read your thread about Splatoon, and I thought that it would be cool to play sometime.
I'll give you my friend code if you want! What sort of time are you thinking of?
Well, you're only the second person to express interest. But assuming we can get another couple people involved, maybe next weekend sometime?
Okay, I'll do some digging in the Logde and see if anyone is up for it
