Back In The Saddle Again



A quote I live by:

'To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else--means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight and never stop fighting.' -EE Cummings

I'm back online after years of inactivity, and to see the way this place has grown and changed is a strange combination of curiosity, gratification, and unease at how alien it all is to me now. I used to laugh at the "old people" who didn't know their way around the latest version of Windows, only to find that I am now the old person and I sympathize more than ever with the thought of all the effort needed to figure out what's new and what has changed since my day. Reading my old profile bio was particularly revealing and painful, but I had to save it before re-writing it. On the plus side (and the reason I came back), I can still do the things I enjoyed the most here, which is creative writing, socializing, and last but certainly not least: modifying my avatar.

I still don't quite remember how to code new images back into the text, so I'm going to leave my old images here so I can hopefully come back and really start to learn about it again. I find myself quite surprised at how much time, energy and effort I put into this site, and not just on this profile. I have a feeling if this place still has that special something that originally kept me here I can get just as much enjoyment out of it. I can't say say something like that about MySpace lol

When You See This at the end of posts, you'll know it was me. ;)

I'm glad you like the idea uwu

Can you explain more about multiple settings and catering to the season?

It seems like a good amount of people are interested in, or at least willing to consider, joining a roleplay~ but they are a weighty commitment, soo maybe some kind of no app/walk-in world, where there's a new narrative event each week or two--to keep things moving, even if there aren't many players interacting with one another at the time.

It could be some kind of dystopian version of an already est. world, which could allow for more freedom around themes and events that might come up.

What do you think?

Literally, the exact reasons I came back, as well.
Missing that writer's kinship/inspiration, and avi building is just fun and relaxing uwu

As far as a guild, tho~
What would you want, specifically, out of a little writer's community like that?
(I need a little inspiration to get my "managerial" wheels spinning.)

I've had several names for him over the years, each one less asinine than the last... I hope.

As a result I don't have one name to identify the personification of my creative inspiration, and am more comfortable with a dramatic title. I can't help but laugh as I post that.

I confess that personifying such a complex concept is a telling detail toward the stunted growth of my muse in the last decade. I hope that the enthusiasm garnered from coming back to this place will "trigger a growth spurt" and generate some truly inspired work.

Nyla Rane: The Maiden of Lost Memories

User Image - Blocked by "Display Image" Settings. Click to show.

Rane is pensive and quiet, quick to smile with a magnetic personality. There is a certain air of enigma about her, but her warm and polite disposition leaves most inquisitive, rather than threatened. Her most endearing quality would perhaps be her loyalty. She isn't too quick to love and trust, but once given is never taken back. She would willingly give her life for those she comes to love, and would never give it a second thought or bout of hesitation. Her cautionary approach to others and personal insecurities make it difficult for her to branch out, but Rane is quite capable of handling herself in public situations; as previously mentioned, she has an aura of mystery surrounding her, and her odd talent in contending with those of power are one of her most intimidating qualities, for despite her personal manifestation, she is an expert at displaying an individual of prestige.

A Message to my best friend

You mean more to me than anything. Thank you for all your love an effort; I would not be here without you.
