The Sinking Ship

This site is heavily scarred by its money-making methods that ruined the gold economy and feels like a sinking ship.

With that in mind, let's go down with this ship.

About

Greetings! It seems you have come across my profile.
↜↝
I've been a member of Gaia since July 21st 2006.
For the first two years, I really didn't log in, since I was focused on other things in my life. In 2009 I came off my hiatus when I logged in one day and fall in love with the Monthly Collectibles (especially Goti the Kid) and was active on and off up to 2014 until the Gaia Dark Age of Goldenort had started to take over. I decided after a few weeks to leave for good. I donated/sold almost all my inventory and left with no intention of ever logging back in. I did come back, however, in early Dec 2016 to start anew when I heard Lanzer was back. Then took another hiatus for about 16 months for no reason (at all) and now I'm back lurking around.
↜↝
YES. My profile is a boring/floral/crowded mess! Its a work in progress.
↜↝
I generally do not accept friend requests unless we have had a conversation or two. Please, leave a comment or PM introducing yourself.
↜↝
I usually hang out in the Gaia Aquarium, where I LOVE to play Booty Grab. Otherwise, I'm usually hanging out in GCD and Entertain forums. I also pop up into the Avatar forums. I profile lurk a bit.
↜↝
Down on the left, there is a tab called Affiliate Link Billboard. I had taken some time going through my "Subscribed Threads" and have linked a lot of my favorite threads, mini shops, guilds, charities, guides, and hangouts to my profile. I did this for two reasons; firstly to make it easier for me to keep track of them and secondly to promote them to you. So please click on any of the banners & check out some awesome threads!
↜↝
If you look over to the right, you will see a LARGE wishlist...The Never-Ending Wishlist. I am slowly working on it. I love collecting, so item quests are my top favorite thing to do on this site. Mostly every item listed on there goes to an avatar I am working on. I do not feel guilty about the lengths I go to make avatars here.
↜↝
I'm 9.8 in zOMG working on side quests and badges. I am a proud member of that Fluff Eye Cult zOMG Clan. I'm level 3 right now in Alchemy, trying to complete formulas when I have time. I'm level 7 in Lake Kindred. Somewhat using GoFusion for fun..?
↜↝
For a brief but wonderful time... I got to be a guest writer on the user run Gaia Online Magazine. The magazine has been long shut down sadly, but the memories are very priceless to me. Here is a link to issue # 6 where my article "The Angel Halo" is featured.
Issue #6 of Gaia Online Magazine
My favorite part about writing this article was interviewing the very few at the time that owned the Angelic Halo. I got to interview one of my long time Gaia idol's B R A I N . He made me laugh so much! If another user run magazine appears - be sure that this gal will write for it!

My username is A BIT ODD, so let me explain it; it's part Shakespeare and part Folklore. Tempest from his sonnet "The Tempest" meaning "The Great Storm" and Lorelay is the name of a famous siren from German Folklore. Simply, my username means: "Storm Siren." I didn't spell it "Lorelei" because "Lorelay" is also acceptable for the spelling of the name.
I do prefer to be called TL however.
↜↝
Thank you for visiting, and I wish you a wonderful experience on Gaia.
Yours Sincerely,
TL

Gaia Moments of "Why the Hell did I do that?"
☑ Buying over 1,000 flowers for no reason and then couldn't really sell them.

When Gaia has made me upset:
☑ Reported for Scamming. Unfairly. I had a contest for an Avi TekTek and the Winner didn't claim her prize. I reached out to her many times, however, she decided to report me for scamming. I got so angry about this, I went on a hiatus for over a year.
☑ Brought an Aquarium Starfish in the MP. I went to put it in my tank and the Starfish needed to be Flushed right then and there! Reported and got no reply. Thanks, Gaia Mods... I want my 60K back.
☑ Voted in the Cats vs. Dogs poll and didn't get the achievement.
☑ Falling for the "Winter Rose Scam" and selling one of my Uncanny Form's.
☑ I miss the chance to get the 2006 Anniversary Sash and still are unable to get it.
☑ Being SPAMMED thousands of announcements to buy GaiaCash starting in 2014.

Favorite Sir Terry Pratchett Quote

"You're saying humans need... fantasies to make life bearable."

REALLY? AS IF IT WAS SOME KIND OF PINK PILL? NO. HUMANS NEED FANTASY TO BE HUMAN. TO BE THE PLACE WHERE THE FALLING ANGEL MEETS THE RISING APE.

"Tooth fairies? Hogfathers? Little—"

YES. AS PRACTICE. YOU HAVE TO START OUT LEARNING TO BELIEVE THE LITTLE LIES.

"So we can believe the big ones?"

YES. JUSTICE. MERCY. DUTY. THAT SORT OF THING.

"They're not the same at all!"

YOU THINK SO? THEN TAKE THE UNIVERSE AND GRIND IT DOWN TO THE FINEST POWDER AND SIEVE IT THROUGH THE FINEST SIEVE AND THEN SHOW ME ONE ATOM OF JUSTICE, ONE MOLECULE OF MERCY. AND YET— AND YET YOU ACT AS IF THERE IS SOME IDEAL ORDER IN THE WORLD, AS IF THERE IS SOME...SOME RIGHTNESS IN THE UNIVERSE BY WHICH IT MAY BE JUDGED.

"Yes, but people have got to believe that, or what's the point—"

MY POINT EXACTLY. YOU HAVE TO BELIEVE IN THE LITTLE LIES TO BELIEVE THE BIGGER ONES

BOOK ~ The Hogfather

My Gaia Starsign ~ Donum ~

Those born under the Donum constellation tend to be incredibly generous. They give away their time and money even if they really need it themselves. This can often leave them in a bad spot, but as long as the person they helped is thankful and happy, they can deal with any problems they're left with. They enjoy helping others and have a strong sense of what is right, but they aren't always strong enough to uphold what they believe in. They can be fragile at times, and can sometimes break down and crash if exploited or mistreated too much, but their faith in humanity never seems to falter for long, and before you know it they'll be patched up and soaring again. They can be rather naive and oblivious sometimes, but many would envy them for being so very far from cynicism, even in the worst of times.

Ready for Discord talks?
Also hey what's up?
II_ShootinG-StaR_II Report | 07/27/2020 7:42 am
Thank you for the purchase! Have a great day and stay safe heart
Silverstar_Cross Report | 07/24/2020 7:26 am
Ready to talk at Discord?
Silverstar_Cross Report | 07/24/2020 6:42 am
Now you look like a Blue Mage from the traditional Final Fantasy games, neat.
Silverstar_Cross Report | 07/23/2020 7:17 am
I hope it's okay for you to know I sent you a Discord request if that's okay.
You can refuse the friend request if you want.
Silverstar_Cross Report | 07/23/2020 7:09 am
She's hot and you should take pride in that.
Wonder if that's an OC of yours. razz

I don't like Pillowfort at all.
I LOVE PILLOWFORT!!!! crying
That said I know of a means you can join Pillowfort for what it's worth, thanks for reminding me.
All Pillowfort is missing are spoiler tags at the moment, everything else is doing awesome though.

Voltra is a promising site that doesn't have any bull$hit artist droughts in any way, shape or form going on, but it is very new to be fair.
Discord is where I go to RP at, these days for what it's worth since Pillowfort's yet to get spoiler tag functions ready, hope they'll be quicker about it than Gaia Online was, that's for sure.

Speaking of Gaia, it deserves to get chewed out for botching out Dark Mode accessibility at a time like this, Dark Mode for the user interfaces to switch on and off at will would've
definitely brought a lot of the old guard back BECAUSE it means the site's fighting to get more accessible!!!

Yeah I know, man-made this time.
Silverstar_Cross Report | 07/23/2020 6:42 am
Well; you look hot. razz (Avatar-wise)
But seriously, I've been up on Discord, I checked out Pillowfort, heard some folks are at Voltra, and still role-playing on Gaia, though unless they
went to put up a Dark mode for user interfaces, replying often on-site's easier said than done.
At least the artist communities are still there but still.

How about you?
Silverstar_Cross Report | 07/23/2020 6:29 am
It's sure been a while so what's up?
Kyra Holmes Report | 07/18/2020 7:20 am
Hi, thanks for the purchase
