While trying to display information from a Monmouth University poll asking whether the media either regular or occasionally posts "fake news", they instead displayed this image.

Congratulations, Fox News. You played yourself. And this also indicates that each of the above networks are considered more trustworthy than Trump.

Blue Wave 2018

06 March 2018 - 10:45 AM

With the midterm elections this year, Democrats are focused on flipping red states to blue.
 

The Texas primaries are tonight, and so far early voting turnout is leaning heavily Democrat.

I doubt that the "Blue Wave" will be completely effective, but judging by elections such as Doug Jones defeating Roy Moore, it does seem that there is at least some strength to it, rather than just a lot of hot air. I imagine we may see some red states turn purple, as well as some previously purple states either choose one extreme or the other.


The DC Extended Universe

02 March 2018 - 10:24 AM

This is a bit of a more catch-all thread to discuss upcoming films related to the DCEU, such as this year's Aquaman, or the upcoming Flashpoint: Homecoming- er, The Flash movie.

 

However, I also want to use this thread to go into more detail regarding something I've been talking about in my thread on media conglomerates and mergers. If you haven't heard yet, AT&T has been working to acquire Time Warner since October 2016. If this merger were to succeed, then AT&T would acquire DC Comics. A trial against the merger is set to begin on the 19th of this month, so we'll have to see how the goes.

 

Recently, a few pieces of news have come up. There is supposedly really bad news about the DCEU coming up, though what that is remains to be seen. However, it seems that if the merger does fail, then Time Warner will break up, possibly even selling off Warner Bros., Turner Broadcasting, and HBO. I should note that Warner Bros. would most likely still own DC Entertainment, so Warner would still be able to produce DC films. That said, it sounds like Warner Bros. (And DC) could potentially be bought up by someone else.

 

I don't mean to make this thread entirely about the merger, but I want to introduce it here to have a backdrop for this discussion. Feel free to also talk about any of the upcoming - or even current - DCEU films that interest you.


Doing some opinions

26 February 2018 - 11:49 AM

Might as well hop on the bandwagon. I'd like to connect with people on here more, and I think these opinion threads will help with that.

 

If you think my opinion of you is going to be less than favorable, I wouldn't advise posting. I do want to work things out with people if possible, and I'd prefer if there was an equal mix of give and take. Other than that, I hope this thread can be more inviting than off-putting.


[Planning] Upcoming Stories from Phantom Roxas

23 February 2018 - 04:22 PM

Hello, everyone. I've made a lot of status updates for a while regarding stories I'm planning, and I think it's best to make a formal thread. When I first started on this website, Fanfiction was a major appeal to me. I tried my hand at a few fanfics, but none got very far. Over the past decade, I feel I've grown as a writer, particularly in that I've since obtained a Bachelor's Degree in Creative Writing. While I hope to one day apply to a more professional writing, I believe that, for all my time on this site, I want to revisit the various stories I've attempted, and even revise some.

 

In particular, much of my motivation has been driven by @Merciful Idiot's Grand Crossover Roleplay. I'm not sure what kind of writer I would be today if I did not join that roleplay, and for as long as that roleplay has taken, ultimately I feel that I've gotten a lot out of it. As such, here are a few stories I hope to begin within the near future:

 

1. "Digimon: The Seven Demon Lords - Anniversary Edition": Based on PokeLen's roleplay, where I played a character named Arthur. Ostensibly, I intend to heavily revise the original roleplay, to both expand the story, while also shift the focus to Arthur. I'm a little hesitant about taking this for myself and making it about my character and story, but ideally the goal of such a revision is to have a significantly updated origin for Arthur. This would effectively serving as a prequel to the GCRP, but I'd rather focus on it primarily as a Digimon story in its own right. The roleplay's tenth anniversary is next month, and so I want to do something. While I think the celebration would only mean anything to me, Arthur has still become a character I'm very proud of, and I'd love to look back on his character and find some way to introduce him to more people.

 

2. "Requiem for Avalon": While this would be a roleplay rather than a fanfic, I would be remiss to not mention it here. As with "The Seven Demon Lords", this is a story connected to the GCRP, spinning out of that, but would hopefully be its own thing. In a way, it would be a "smaller" crossover roleplay, while also taking inspiration from "The World Ends With You". The players and characters (Either of your own creation, or as with the GCRP, could be established characters from any other works to create fun opportunities for crossovers) are all deceased, but in the afterlife, they are playing the Reaper's Game. It is up to the players to guide their characters to a second chance at life.

 

3. "Yu-Gi-Oh! Zodiac Cross": This is one story I've tried my hand with before, but again, not something I've really had a solid idea for. Blake is one of my first OC's on this site, but he's never had a story that's helped him take off the way Arthur has. This story would revolve around the Western Zodiac, and my previous attempt at this story revolved around a Duel Academy with houses based around all of the twelve signs. However, I believe that concept is not something I could handle properly, so while I want to retain the Zodiac theme of this story, I want to utilize it in a vastly different way.

 

These are just some examples to start this thread off with. I may present some stories once I feel more confident about actually writing them.
