I'm reading your TV show entry about the afterrealms right now, but I just wanted to quickly say that Sanctuary and Amanda Tapping are awesome. She's one of my favorite characters in Stargate, also.
Amanda Tapping is amazing! Sanctuary was such an awesome show, and I was pissed when SyFy axed it. I mean, sure, I guess that ending works as a series finale, but it's kind of anticlimactic. Ugh. (I was even angrier about SGU. That was left completely unresolved.)
Nice to meet another Sanctuary fan! Most people I mention it to haven't heard of it lol. And Sam Carter has always been my favorite Stargate character, even though I have more in common with Daniel Jackson!
The ending to SGU was BULLCRAP!!! And Origins sure as heck didn't give the series closure! *sigh*
Every time Sanctuary came on I'd be like "idk what this is, sooo" then I saw Amanda and was like "OMG IT'S SAMANTHA CARTER!" lol
Daniel is my favorite character in SG btw haha
And even though Sanctuary was great and the ending was ok, I was kinda bummed out it got cancelled too. Same with Firefly. And TerraNova. And all the other awesome shows that should've continued. *sighs again*
Firefly is my #1 Show That Should Not Have Been Canceled. Sure, the Serenity movie was outstanding, but that universe was made for the TV format, and FOX totally screwed Joss Whedon over with that show. They treated him and his cast and crew so poorly with that broadcast schedule that it was almost like they were treating them like children. I hate FOX on so many levels, but the way they handled Firefly still ticks me off to this day.
Hello. *waves hand*
Greetings! Welcome to ZU!
Togepi is the happiest!
Roses are red
Violets are more of a purple-ish color in my opinion but for the sake of this poem let's call them blue
If you were a Lvl. 12 Metapod
I'd level you up so you can evolve, and I'd always choose you!
Thank you so much, Winnie! I'm kind of elated, especially after the related strife I experienced last week!
I'm officially adulting!
How do you feel about the Ferengi episodes? Besides Profit and Lace, that's obviously terrible.
I find the Ferengi obnoxious and basically representative of everything I hate about capitalism (though obviously a hyperbolic representation). Some of the episodes are fun, but most of them are bleh, as far as I can remember. I have a soft-ish spot for later-series Quark and his family. Wallace Shawn is simultaneously both the best and the worst casting decision for a recurring character in DS9 lol; his portrayal of the Grand Nagus is suuuuuper whiny and annoying. But at the same time...it's Wallace Shawn as a Ferengi!
Ah, well, that's the point of the Ferengi, isn't it? They represent everything wrong with capitalism. I like some of the actual episodes, though—they're not necessarily Star Trek's finest hours, but they're comfortable to watch. Business as Usual is probably the best one, and that has only one other Ferengi.
It's been about 5 years since I last saw any of them, so I'll have to come back with a more recent opinion when I see some of them now!
Are you just going to run straight through the series?
Probably! I mean, I usually prefer to go in order anyway, but it's a little more important in DS9, given the various story arcs.
I missed your B-day... darn...
Well, here's a life-size Blue Pig Ganon statue. *gives present*
lol That's quite a gift! Thanks!
Happy (late) birthday, Ezlo! I hope it was incredible!
Thanks, Twi! It was not incredible, but it could have been twelve times worse, so I can't complain!
It's Eden's birthday? Hope it was good one, and the rest of it is too!
It is! It really is! It's been a pretty decent one, though not much has happened outside the ordinary. Luckily, it's been a fairly low-key day!
Good to here, Mimikyu!
Happy birthday!!! I hope it's awesome.
Thanks, Realm! Can't exactly say it's been awesome, but I've had far worse birthdays, so I'm not complaining!
Happy birthdaaaaay Ezlo ^_^
Thaaaaaaaank you, Froyo! ^w^
HAH I remembered today was your birthday.
Happy birthday! I hope you have a wonderful one!
Yay! Thank you!
How is you?
Thanks, Tead! I is quite well! How is you?
Happy birthday, Ezlo! (*^▽^*)
Thanks, Ciel/Luffy/Aria! ^_^
Happy Birthday once more Ezlo! I hope you have a wonderful birthday filled with Togepi's and other cute Pokemon!
Thanks so much, Tru! I welcome any and all Pokémon except Mewtwo, Mega Mewtwo X, Barbaracle, and Zygarde 50% Form!
Mimikyu! The pokemon that is both adorable and incredibly disturbing.
Ezlo how’s it going?!
Hi, Winnie the Dinnie! It's going rather well! How've you been?
Pretty good! Haven’t seen you around as much, anything new and exciting going on? Maybe I haven’t been on as much though so it could just be me haha
I've been around quite a bit, but I haven't posted quite as much in recent days.
I helped staff my school's anime convention this weekend, which was an incredible experience, even more so than last year! That's probably the biggest thing in my life at the moment. How about you? Anything cool happening on your end?
That's so cool! Any animes you've gotten into lately? I recently started Fairy Tale and found out there's almost 300 episodes!
I started the second (full) season of The Seven Deadly Sins a few weeks ago, but I quickly lost interest after they incorporated the stereotypical anime dialogue about semantics in the form of "power level" breakdowns. That stuff drives me up a wall; I much prefer show to tell. Other than that, I really haven't watched much anime in a rather long time. I was in the middle of the first Naruto series about a year ago. And I'm in the middle of rewatching Ouran High School Host Club, Death Note, and Dragon Ball (original) after I got them on DVD. I was also early on in DBZ a couple years ago, but I dropped that because I found it to be moody, endless-fight-scene trash compared to its fun, light-hearted predecessor. I did see the film Your Name. at the convention yesterday, and that was delightful! Tugged at the heartstrings.
I watched Fairy Tail a while ago. Really fun series if you're into fantasy and magic. Doesn't go overboard with action sequences and has a cast of really interesting characters. I finished watching the first series, which ends abruptly in the middle of a story arc, which boggles my mind to this day, and I haven't gotten back into it since, unfortunately. But it's definitely worth sticking through because most of the arcs build on each other...and also Happy is in it!
Will you marry me?
Buy me a non-alcoholic drink first.
*pours you some refreshing ice-cold lemonade in a Pokemon-themed glass that has Pichu on it eating a donut*
I'm yours lol.
Lol then let us go: to see the world beyond!
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!
