Shamelessly copypasta aside...
Favorite villain song?
What is your opinion on yuri?
Given your current name, you must have a favorite meme? Which one is it?
Why do I feel like you're a much rarer sight in the RP section than other RPers?
Also this one's not a question but I forgot to mention this in my AMA when you asked opinions. You've got easily one of my favorite sigs on YCM.
I love RPing with you cause I think not only are you a good RPer, but I feel like you really get me memeing with my characters. Plus your characters are always fun, and while your characters do tend to fall into the loli archetype, I think you do a generally good job of diversifying their personalities. Honestly, in recent memory, my favorite character of yours is probably Dayna from Demon Blood because I felt she was really outside of your comfort zone, even though she did technically fall into the loli archetype. That being said I don't think I'm really familiar enough with your characters to pick a clear and away favorite.
As a person I think you're super fun, and I feel we'd get along really well if we spoke more outside just RP chats. Plus you're just super fun to meme with, and I think we have very similar interests.
Favorite villain song if you mean Disney it's this one (even though it never actually made it into the movie)
If you mean boss theme from a game, it's probably this one
or this one
I feel like both songs just have so much emotion in connection with the characters they represent
As a girl who likes girls I really like yuri, even though some of the time I feel like it's really demeaning to actual lesbians and just kind of fetishizes, so I'm always kinda searching for good ones. Because of this I tend to prefer shoujo ai over straight up yuri.
I'm not sure I really have a favorite meme because I just love the off the wall nonsensical silliness that memes present as a form of humor. If I had to pick a favorite it would probably the one where the kid's like if it were not for the laws of this land I would have slaughtered you. I just thinks it's too funny for some reason.
Honestly, it's probably because I'm really selective about what RPs I join. Plus sometimes when I find RPs I actually want to join they'll be full by the time I notice them so I won't get in time. Also I'm just busy af with animation stuff, which is both really fun, but also a tiny bit unfortunate.
Oh, and thank you. You're sigs never cease to amuse me, plus they're always changing so I always get a fun surprise when I go into threads you've posted in
This is something I would like to touch on, if I may.
Because I've never been in an intersex person's shoes, it's hard for me to try to really break into that character and express them well. I feel like, if I do it wrong, I could really damage not only the character, but I could harm a community or someone who may really identify with Mia. That was why I slowly took the turn to referring to Mia as 'she', because it was the only thing I knew how to do.
And I feel badly about it. I feel like I should be able to understand her situation, but I don't. And I'm so afraid of trying to do something on that powerful of a level, that I'm just not sure how to go about it. Which is all the more reason I'm so sad that Alive didn't continue. Because I know Mia was such a valued, and important character, simply by design. And her struggle with her masculinity and her femininity is so important to her as a character. But I'm not sure how to tackle the issue, because it's unfamiliar to me.
As for the rest, I have to agree with you. I want to explore more one on one relationships between the survivors. And not just Mia. With everyone. I feel like Mia's relationship with Destiny and Christina is strong enough, but I should explore Mia and Riku, Mia and Amaris, Christina and Leroy, and so much more.
Sorry for blabbing. I put my heart and soul into that fic now, and I wouldn't have gotten so far without it's cast and crew. Your feedback--I can't express it enough--is so important to me. I don't want let you down.
Oh, and do you think Alive would've taken a different direction if it were still . . .well, alive?
I can definitely respect that, but if you do feel you want to go down that road I can definitely help you out, plus I can link you to a bunch of resources I have about writing intersex characters. That being said I really can't sing praises enough for this story. Like every minute of it is so enjoyable, and honestly it's fight scenes are so hype. I really look forward to see where you go forward with it.
I do think Alive would've gone in a different if it had stayed as an RP rather than becoming a story, because with Alive as a story it's mostly just you, but with an RP it's a bunch of different people together collaborating, so even if the plot had remained relatively the same I think the interactions and character developments would've been vastly different. Like I said though, I think that that's just the nature of RPs and collaborative writing in general.

Whatchu think of me fam? RP-wise and personally.
You're super fun to talk to, and I think you're a super fun person to hang around. Tbh, I really wished we talked more outside of just RPing contexts cause I'd really like to get know you better as a friend. I really enjoy RPing with you, because of how much of my antics you put up with, plus I always have fun with the stuff you come up with. Honestly, my only complaint with you RP wise is that they tend to move rather slowly, but it's really not always your fault, and I have some of the same issues too, so I'm not really one to criticize.
I enjoy rping with you. Do you think Alive could've progressed differently? Also, are there some other things about Mia you'd like me to explore? And if there was anything about her design you could change, what would it be?
I enjoy RPing with you as well. Like goddamn, your characters always exude coolness, and they always just seem so lively and fun. I'd really love to be friends with you outside of the RPing sense as well. You seem like a super hype dude.
I do think near the beginning things moved a bit too quickly, and the survivors were taking down Majin Lords a bit too quickly and a bit too easily, but I feel that the story has really come into its own the more you've developed it. The story is so hyped now, and I just love reading it, like I said in the thread I get so happy whenever you post an update, and it's one of the only pieces of online writing (fanfic and original) that I keep coming back to to read on a regular basis
Something I'd really love for you to explore is Mia's identity as an intersex person and her struggle with balancing her feminity with her masculinity. I'd also love to see the development of her relationships with other survivors individually more. Like she hangs out with female survivors in general, but I'd really love to see her interact with the survivors one on one more like in the Ten Flags scenes.
Honestly, if I could re-write her I'd want to make her less idk, like pathetic. Looking back she just seems like a melodramatic debbie downer, and I really don't think I developed her as well I should have. Honestly, I feel like if I wanted to stick with the emotionless broad personality deadpan snarker would've fit her much better, but even that I don't think really would've fit her. I think honestly I should've given her like a party b**** attitude, and that would've been a better fit for the way she would've tried to invent herself.

Alright, no offense to the mods I think you guys are lovely people, but how important is it who is one and who is not one. I'm just saying really the only reason they're around is to make sure the site doesn't burn down and keep things civil. Quite frankly the fact that they're going through all this trouble is more than they need to be doing, and we should be thankful that they are doing this much. They are under no obligation to be doing this and let's be perfectly honest it's not like the mods here are f***ing tyrants. There are real people with real lives and it's not like they have hours to waste doing stupid s*** on a children's card game forum. No offense to anybody in this thread, but honestly our mods are doing fine, and I really think we might be blowing this issue a bit too much out of proportion. Like for the most part when we bring up problems we have with the mod team they do their best to fix them, and they listen, so can y'all maybe chill.

"Suck on that!" Roche cheered as he saw one of the Dauntlesses come spinning into open space. Without the cover of the colony, he was a sitting duck. There wasn't much time to celebrate as the other three Dauntlesses seemed to have recovered quickly and were already returning fire. "s***, s***, s***. Looks like I poked the nest." Roche gritted his teeth dodging machine gun fire before the alarms in his Sieg alerted him to the fragmentation shell headed his way.
The fragmentation shell exploded between both him and Kenji effectively separating the pair, however, Roche wasn't quite out of danger just yet.
"Kenji are you-" Roche was cut off as another explosion rocked his mobile suit, and from the explosion the Dauntless his shot had knocked out charged him, beam saber drawn. "Nice try jackass!" It was a close call, but Roche had just enough time to dodge out of the way. "Kenji, I need you to keep those other Dauntlesses occupied for a little while, I'm going to take this guy out myself!"
Using the Sieg's superior speed and man to his advantage Roche got in behind the Dauntless before firing on it with his arm-mounted Vulcan gun. "You wanna mess a******, lets mess!" Knowing the Dauntless wouldn't be stunned forever Roche began putting distance between him and the weapon's platform readying his beam rifle once he felt that he had put enough distance between himself and the Dauntless.

Chapter 20: Eye of the Storm
Aangeal dropped Lindow, standing up straight. She could sense the power in the sky above. A new challenge. She thirsted for it. She kicked Lindow away, and bellowed at the clouds, challenging whoever would dare.
Riku scooped up Lindow, who was still groaning, placing his spare hand over his open shoulder socket, and freezing the wound. It stopped the bleeding, but he would be suffering for a while. In the meantime, Jared got up from his slump, and assisted Destiny as they both regrouped with the rest of the survivors.
Aangeal continued her incessant barking, demanding that the challenger show their face. She flapped her wings twice, before rocketing away from the Earth at impossible speeds. She left a great crater in her wake, as she soared straight upwards into the air, and disappeared into the clouds.
There was a flash of lightning, briefly illuminating Aangeal's shadow, and the shape of one other. They were dueling head to head, and it could only be one person.
"Is that--" Mia began.
"Leroy!" Destiny cried out.
There was another boom of thunder, and suddenly Aangeal emerged from the clouds again. This time, she was sent spiraling back down to the ground, a funnel forming behind her. Aangeal righted herself, before touching down gracefully on the ground, as she looked back up the clouds again.
The sky began to roll, clouds bunching together like large fluffy blankets. They were black clouds, as black as Destiny's attire, and Thanatos' blade. And from the clouds, multiple large funnels began to twirl towards the earth. They touched down one at a time, totaling three. Three massive, black tornadoes that began to grow, and rip the Ten Flags park apart. They spun away from each other, but spun together in a ring, going clockwise around the park's perimeter. And now, at the center of these clouds, there was a small break, as Leroy began to descend.
"Do you remember what we discussed, Leroy?" Quetzalcoatl asked, in the back of his head.
Leroy nodded, flying as quickly as he could back towards the park. "Yeah. I remember it word for word." The last thing he recalled was an emergency alert from Yuel, saying the survivors were surrounded. And then, things got progressively worse. A Majin Lord had arrived, and he wasn't there to help. He increased his speed.
"Then there is one more thing you must do," Quetzalcoatl said, as Leroy reached into his pocket. His old plane keys. Leroy gripped them tightly, but he could feel Quetzalcoatl tugging at his hand. "Leroy. Trust me."
Leroy let go, and his keys fell far below, out of sight, and into the lake beneath him. He turned his head away from the water, and back towards the park. "Here and now," he began.
"Will you give up everything, Leroy? Will you denounce your ties to the world, and follow me?"
Leroy nodded. "I will."
"Then I will give you my strength. All of it. I place upon you the Mark of the Dragon. And you shall Break your Fayth, and walk with me."
Gripping his staff tightly, Leroy could feel the very make-up of his body begin to change. He felt queasy. Uneasy. "I think I'm gonna be sick," he said as the Ten Flags park came into view.
Every time you post a new chapter/update for this my skin clears and my crops begin growing. Please keep up the good work

The ratio really isn't "off" though, it's spot-on. We shouldn't expect women who don't want to play these games to do so. The "creepy, aggressive males are driving away all the female players" narrative is porous.
A) Female interest in gaming isn't proportionate to male interest and never has been. It isn't there initially when a new game is introduced either, so it isn't a matter of their numbers being equal and then diminished.
B) Creepiness and aggression aren't exclusively male traits, nor are females the only ones capable of being offput by creepy and aggressive behaviour. Those with thinner skins have thinner skins. Competition does not reward sensitivity.
C) The rules of the game are equal for everyone. Lack of female initiative and success is inevitably on those females who haven't tried and haven't succeeded. Those who are playing can keep up the good fight, and if they are as good or better than their male opponents they have every opportunity to prove it that their male counterparts do, they have every opportunity that Jeff Jones does. No woman has ever won an SJC, World Championship, or YCS. It's on them to woman up.
That's because not only is it a male dominated space, it's an anti-female space. Guys get angry whenever girls try to enter their boys' club and get especially angry when girls are better at their hobbies than they are. Acting like women simply don't want to play these games is ignoring all the social and societal factors at work here. Girls are deterred from playing these games because it's "for boys", and even if a girl does continue on with it she's met by a player base that predominantly doesn't want her there. Sometimes even if she is welcomed she has to wade through oceans of creepy guys who only see her as a sex object because she's a "nerd girl", but also don't want to respect her as a legitimate player.

Don't forget, Gaiden never had an avatar like Blazing Sword, Awakening and Fates did. So we can't marry them. Besides, Alm and Celica are more meant to be.
Speaking of, which heroes from SoV, if any, will be in Heroes' roster?
I assume that eventually given enough time that every single character in the franchise will eventually make it into the game. That being said I assume Celica and Alm with definitely be in a focus gacha for the game, along with a few other characters they think will be most popular
In terms of faves on Celica's side Boey and Leon are looking super good
On Alm's side Lukas, Kliff and Silque are my favorites
if there are supports in this game I'm going to really look forward to UnassumingVenasaurs gay hack for this game

If we could steal it from YCMaker and put it under the management of someone who can code, that would be the most effective first step.
However barring that, we just need to foster a less antagonistic community. The problems causing people to leave, as I see it, are not necessarily the content being posted but the inflammatory delivery of the content, and the continued insistence upon "sides," from Winters/Roxases to Conservatives/Liberals, everyone thinks everyone else needs a label and it's creating division that pushes people out.
This isn't me whining, I've stayed and will continue to. This is an observation as to why people seem to be leaving. It's entirely the fault of people trying to being up fights instead of discussions, or trying to prolong misunderstandings rather than resolve them.
I understand where you're coming from, but the problem is that some of the content that's posted directly affects people on this site, so when you have people who have opposing views on very personal issues people are going to get heated, and there's nothing you can do about that. It doesn't have really anything to do about sides or even (arguably) political ideology, but personal issues that people feel very strongly about. Especially so when those issues affect people's daily lives, and how they live, it's easy when someone doesn't have the same perspective you do to go onto the attack.
Not trying to disagree with you, so I apologize if any of this comes across as hostile towards you.
I utterly despise that the community is essentially divided into who sides with me, and who sides with Winter, and (Though this part I don't see as frequently) an assumption that disdain for one automatically means approval of the other.
It's basically two guys feuding while one part of the side is placing bets on who will win, while the rest of the site is wondering why anyone even cares about the feud to begin with.
I know it's been said before, but I wouldn't say it's fair to hold you at fault for people "ganging up" on Winter. Long before you were involved in General/Debates Winter and I disagreed on just about everything, and I know for a fact that I'm not the only one. It was especially not helped by the fact that it was really only Winter who held these opposing views. I mean of course there was Halu, but he wasn't really all that active in the section.
Honestly, I know for myself (I won't presume to speak for others), my disagreements with Winter don't arise from anything to do with you (no offense you do seem like a pretty cool guy) or even from political partisanship. Me and Winter just fundamentally disagree on a lot of social and economic issues, which are often very polarizing topics.
