Geek Girl

Those of you who dip your toes into the ocean that is Twitter may have noticed me mentioning a book for silly, soppy girls, called Geek Girl, by Holly Smale. In the interests of full disclosure, I have to say right now that I met Holly at the Harper Collins Summer Party last week and, well... she's kind of besotted with me. It's a thing, it happens, it's perfectly natural, so let's all move past it without making Holly feel at all self-conscious.

Thank you.

I exchanged a few tweets with her a few weeks ago, then visited her twitter page. I figured if she was half as funny in her book as she is on twitter, it'd be a book worth reading. So I bought it, and I've just finished it.

My Review of Geek Girl

Geek Girl is a book about a girl who is a geek. There are no ninjas in it. Virtually no one dies. There are two haircuts (one planned, one not). There are bizarre characters. There is one tremendously awful bully that makes you want to punch the page. There are clothes and shoes.

And DESPITE all the lack of bloodshed... this book is brilliant.

Harriet is 15 years old. She's a geek. She likes facts and figures and doing her homework. She's not exactly popular in school. She's just... weird. Her mind works in unusual ways. When she's plucked from her life and told she's going to be a model she thinks everything is going to get better— she's going to change and suddenly be cool and have friends...

There are lines in this book that will make you laugh out loud. There are jokes. One liners. Gags. Set ups and payoffs. It may deal with popularity (or lack of same), and it may deal with bullying, and insecurity, and it may play with the myth of metamorphosis... but even when Harriet is at her most vulnerable, she is never less than hilarious.

If it helps, you can think of Harriet as the younger sister to Clarabelle, in the Skulduggery books. She is, literally, THAT weird. And THAT loveable.

I would rate this book eight fish out of eight.


But please, let's not mention how much Holly fancies me. It's just... it's embarrassing.

I AM HAVING A FANGIRL BREAKDOWN

#ChaseForBook9

dalekwho said...

I can go across the country for book 8s tour

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

OH GEEZ.

WELL. WE basically saved Trip and people started to ship the two of us, making Adrip/Tadra.
Then while the festives began, some guy named Alastair Cruciatus shows up, (whom I knew through Zaf) and we basically got slaughtered.

For the past few days we've been trying to free Zaf, then Aretha, then Aretha and Alexis (Zaf's daughter) from being trapped inside his head (with 48 other true names).

Two days ago, we trapped him in a bound room, and the room began to collapse and all attacks (magical and non-magical) just rebounded and hit us. Alastair used some of his life force to keep the room from collapsing, and it snapped back and hit him

So he had 24 hours to live, which ended last night where he went back in time and switched into Niccolo, who was the guy who originally lived in the body before Alastair took over and I tried to save Niccolo (along with some weird red dust stuff)

And we're still awaiting an answer on if he's ok

Maralie Lily Charm said...

LUCIIIIIIIIII! *tacklehugs*

Right, thanks adra. It's hard to keep up on weekdays due to school

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

Of course!

Oh, by the way, Alastair is a sadist, a mass-murderer killer, and his goal in life is to make people suffer.

Elder Zafira Kerias said...

And if he dies I lose my daughter....

Maraness posted this on the last page.

"Daddy
Why does dad look so sad?
Does he not love us anymore?

Daddy
Why are people calling you and dad
A "queer" and a "disgrace"?
Is it a bad thing?
It doesn't matter
Because you're both still lovely

Daddy
Why does Dad have marks on his wrists?
He says it's from the cat
But we don't have a cat

Daddy
The people at school are being mean to me
They say it's not normal to have two daddies
They call me names
But it's okay because I still love you

Daddy
Why is dad sleeping on a hospital bed
with covers over his face?
Is he okay?
I noticed the stitches on his arm
Was it because of the cat?

Daddy
I heard the doctors say something about "drug overdose"?
What does that mean?
Will dad ever wake up?
I miss him

As I looked at my child's green eyes
I couldn't find the strength to tell her.
So all I said was
"Dad is now a star.
The angels took him back
Because he was the brightest star in the entire universe.
When he was down here the sky was not as bright as it was when he was up there with them"

:'("

And the last verse made me cry.
And I thought I should tell you.

I HAVE READ VERY FEW BOOKS SET IN REAL LIFE THAT WERE WORTH ANYTHING. I HAVE READ SOME THAT WERE PRETTY GOOD, BUT ONLY TWO THAT WERE AWESOME, AND THEM AWESOME ONES PROVED TO ME THAT THEY EXISTED, SO I SHALL READ IT, DEREK. :)

At some point.

If I see it in the library.

Because I'm trying to save money and there are otehr books I need to buy.

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

TID disappointed me.

I thought it was awesome.

And then it had the second-worst ending in the universe.

(The worst ending in the universe was when, in this book series, the main characters accidentally got cloned so it ended up that they could live in their own worlds and live with each other at the same time (an A and a B in A's world, and an A and a B in B's world.)

Ohmygosh, The Infernal Devices ended TERRIBLY.

I was so angry.

I'm incredibly happy that I can rely on Derek to give us a good ending.

(By 'good', I mean 'realistic with people being unhappy.' By 'terrible', I mean 'totally unrealistic with incredibly likely things occuring to make every single person live happily ever after when REALITY ISN'T LIKE THAT.)

(I'm not against happy endings, I'm just against insane happy endings where horrible choices don't suddenly get resolved so that both sides can be picked.)

(See, if the last thingy at the end of TID hadn't existed, it would have been a good happy ending. The last chapter thingy (I remembered the special name but then I forgot it) just made it insanely stupid and unrealistic.)

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

If TMI ends terribly, I will literally cry. I will. It's such a brilliant series and if it has a crap ending it will let it all down and I will cry. TID isn't as bad beacuse it's a prequel to the original with less books, but so much years and work and epicness went into TMI - it CANNOT end crappily. It cannot. D:

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

@Mushroom: :/

You aren't being ignored.

Sometimes, when you think you are, people just haven't included you yet because you only popped in for one comment.

I tend to just act like people have been here forever when they appear unless they say hi, because I'm absent-minded, and I don't reply to everyone, so it's normal for me not to speak to someone who just pops in and says something random for one comment.

Other people may be like me.

If you stick around, you'll be ignored less.

Yes?

*hugs*

I'm not trying to blame you. All I'm trying to do is make you see that not all of us hate you.

I have missed you.

I told you so.

Actually, forever sounds good to me.

Especially when I'm the one everyone constantly goes to for help and advice. When I only exist when I'm needed.

Bad timing? Yeah, whatever. Not like I've dropped everything or risked my exam results for you guys before. Nope. I'd never "forget" to do work to help a friend who needs me, because I'm a stupid, selfish bitch!

I've tried making multiple comments, Star, so what you've said is BS!

You guys just ignored me, when I needed you the most.
When I was most alone.
Even my e-mails and Facebook messages seem to be ignored... Hah.

I should have expected as much, really... I always get forgotten when people get what they want.

I really wanted to email you, but I was selfish and couldn't be bothered to. Lazy. It was compkete and utter laziness. I kept putting it off until the last minute, then said "I don't need to intrude, I'll mess everything up."

So I didn't.

Because I'm a screw up :)

But if you ever need anyone, even if you don't feel like you want help, I'm here.

Sorry. *hugs*

#ChaseForBook9

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

Bye Fabi?

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

*arrives back*

Okay, forget that.

I am not going to argue.

I am not going to insist that we are all saints and that you are mistaken/correct, because at the end of the day, I can only see inside one head. I can only answer for myself, and anything else I say is just guessing.

So.

I have been insanely busy all last week. Everyone knows that. I've barely been here. Maybe I have ignored you. If I have, I'm really, sincerely sorry. You can accept my apology or not, but I will never stop feeling even if I forget about it, because I will always be subconsciously sorry. I can never justify my ignoring you when I wasn't either not there or going in five seconds.

If you want help, all you have to do is email me. If someone emails me saying something, I will always reply, even if that reply is not immediate because of me not noticing or doing something.

But you have to let me know you're feeling crap.

Because I am not a mind reader.

And I am a lazy person who does not read between lines very well.

I will only looking deeply at what you're saying if I deem it important (this goes for everyone).

And if they're not upset or saying something meaningful (meaningful to them also counts), why would it be important to my brain which skims lightly over these masses of words?

I think an apology is in order there as well.
So sorry.
*hugs*

I also rarely say hi to people who appear without saying hi when there ae multiple people on, which is something to remember.

And, I'm sorry. *hugs*

Really, all I can do is apologise.

And if you hate me, that's okay. Sometimes, people laugh at me beacuse I've done something stupid. It's rather mean of them. But often I think, if I'm creating laughter, that's good, I'm happy to do that, even if the only way I'm doing it is looking stupid and being made fun of. And I automatically laugh when other people laugh, so when they laugh at me, I generally laugh along. Which not only reassures them I'm good with it, it also cuts the sting off for me.
If you hate me, that's okay. I don't mind. I don't hate people because they hate me. You're amazing. You're one of the most amazing people on this planet and although you may hate me, hey, at least you exist.

And I think that is all.

... Look, do you see why I hate myself? Directing the attention towards myself all the time. I never stop.

I'm going, too.

I'm sorry for everything. Everything.

I'm going for now, I can't stand this. I'm sure as 022-012-110-110 not leaving Blogland for good, though. But...please?

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

@Maraness: *hugs* What? How is any of this your fault? *laughs*
What on earth did you do? :)
*can honestly not see it at all* *can't even see how you see it, and I usually can with these things*

@Fabi: *hands her a bravery medal*

I'm such a coward, did you all know?
You know those people who say one thing with one group of people and something completely different with another?
I'm practically one of them, because I want to keep the peace so badly. -_-
I don't ever make stuff up, though. Just making that completely clear. If I express an opinion, I mean that truthfully. :)

It's so odd. The older Bloglandians have spent all year wanting the insane rping back, and now it's back, and it's creating tension. :)

Just for the record, I think both roleplaying and chatting are awesome.

Fabi, I still don't know what you mean with your numbers...

Guys some of us just want to have a really good role play... We haven't in a long time. We can comment OOC more, yeah, but we want to do this as well...

And I'm sorry for everyone who has a bad life or feels left out. I wish there was something I could do to help you all, but maybe we should instead of making one liners, we should go to someone directly... Otherwise I'm sure you all will get ignored and we can't have that.

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

Can't we all just agree that we all have something in life that SUCKS SHIT? And that no we're not alone. We need to have a day every month or something where we all get on a chat room or something and talk it out?

I don't think taking problems to the blog is a good idea. That's me personally and I am not stopping you, but I'm just saying... If you need someone, it might be best to do it over PM...

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

That's just my opinion though...

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

@Maranessy: Why are you scared to email ME? *hurridly hides weapons of mass destruction behind a rock that isn't Eve*

Seriously though - I can totally get why you are, because I kind of am, but you don't have to be afraid of me. I'd like to say I won't judge, but I analyse a lot of stuff and will probably judge something although that something may not be you, and you may want be to judge something, so maybe the correct reply is - I won't judge the fact you mailed me (I don't analyse that beacuse I don't really think about it) and I won't judge against you. :)

The roleplaying is epic, but chatting is cool too.

Killer Kitty said...

Erm... hey?
What's happening cause I just read a few posts from you guys and there seems to be a problem

Elder Zafira Kerias said...

Helllo Killer Kitty! Have we met before?

#ChaseForBook9

Aretha Tesla said...

Ok, it seems to me like the real problem here is that we don't have separate places to roleplay and talk seriously, or just chat. These comments are all we've got, and sometimes they're not enough. I don't think the roleplaying is bad. I don't think everybody just chatting is bad. I think it's fine that people want to do one or the other or both. I am genuinely sorry for anyone I ignored while I was roleplaying. I am not trying to excuse myself in any way when I say this, but it is difficult to keep track of roleplays and other comments, and when your head is preoccupied in a storyline, it can be difficult to notice when someone needs help. Again, I don't mean to excuse myself in any way with that, I'm just trying to pinpoint all the problems to better come up with a solution. Several people who needed it have emailed me while I was roleplaying, and I responded to them rather promptly and did the best I could, as I always do. Luci has never emailed me before, so... But again, I'm not excusing myself. If people have a right to roleplay here they also have a right to seek comfort here from others, or just pleasant conversation. So I don't feel it's right to say 'if you need help, send an email' and dis-include everyone else from talking here, because we all have a right to, and sometimes a need to. So, in conclusion... I think the problem is that we need some method where we can either roleplay and speak normally simultaneously, or we need a different place for roleplaying. Maybe the roleplayers can jump down a post, or something...? I don't really know about a solution yet, but I think that's our problem.

#ChaseForBook9

T befobeforw. soz though got to leave for a bit. I think we've met. be back soon

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

Kitty... Everyone is having a fight right now and there's just so many sides to this dice I hardly know...

Some people have problems and feel ignored (to which I think they should PM someone on fb or something. Or me. Or others.)

Some are upset with the role playing.( to that I say that the last good one we had was last summer and I've missed it and so have others, and it does help to read back sometimes)

Can I give you all I sarcastic round of applause for fighting over role-playing?

Might not be here.

#ChaseForBook9

Aretha Tesla said...

I think we do have a right to roleplay here, but some people need to talk about things- get stuff off their backs and ask for help- and they shouldn't feel driven away by the roleplaying. But it's difficult to say we'll just do them simultaneously, because I don't know about others, but when I'm roleplyaing on here it's hard for me to notice everything else. We need some kind of separation, I think, but I don't know how best to go about that.

#ChaseForBook9

Elder Zafira Kerias said...

Well if we roleplay we need to make it obvious we are roleplaying say Derek comes on and doesnt want to rp but will chat that means we can respond to him in ( ) and in rolepkay without the ( ) that makes sense to me

#ChaseForBook9

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

I've noticed as well... It's like reading a book. You get in the book zone that sometimes you don't notice others or really want to, because you're in it, and it's exciting.
I'm sorry I couldn't have been there for you all, and you've told me your side. Please try and understand mine as well...

☂Fabi☂ said...

That's why I deleted the 020-210-010-102-100-112-021 comment is so people wouldn't think I was hating on roleplay. :-/

I have nothing against roleplay. My problem is the hurt feelings.

I also don't like the idea of separating Blogland. It just doesn't feel right to me.

(my opinion, please don't kill me)

#ChaseForBook9

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

*critisise

@Fabi: :)

@Aretha: I have thought of and suggested being on separate posts before, but on email, so. :/

The only flaw is - I spent an hour today reading the comments after I got back from school. That is normal. It takes up so much of my life. If I had to spend two hours doing it . . . I would die. D:
But I do agree that that is selfish.
What would happen is, I would just utterly stop rping.

Look see, the roleplaying has been dying down recently. I think what we've been doing the past few days - some roleplaying, some chatting - is good. But my reasons for dissing separate posts are entirely selfish so don't stop for that. :)

#ChaseFOrBookNine

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

@Fabi: Goood point.

I feel both sides, Adra. I love the rolelaying, it's epic - although I've barely been involved it it because business, the comments are so fun to read. :)

However, I have missed chatting, and I've missed my usual blogfriends who usually chat but haven't been here because rolplaying.

I'm sitting on the fence AGAIN and I just want to bang my had against a brick wall beacuse I'm sick of it. -_-
Actually, I take that back. Brick walls hurt. I want o bang my head against a carpeted floor. :)

Elder Zafira Kerias said...

Arguint sucks cuz i wanna rp i wanna know if Coco lives

#ChaseForBook9

Aretha Tesla said...

Fabi- I don't like the idea of separating Blogland either, I just don't see how we can do both at once. I know we sometimes do what Zaf proposed (speaking OOC like this), and that might work for most people, I don't know about others, but I know that for me, anyway, it's really difficult to pull off. But maybe that's just because I have to write for two people.

#ChaseForBook9

Elder Zafira Kerias said...

Ari that's why it's hard for you but if it works for most people then maybe you can try it and it's understandable if you dont speak OOC as you are Coco/ Alastair and Aretha

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

@Zaf: YOU want to roleplay, but believe it or not, the world doesn't revolve around you. :)

#ChaseForBookNine

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

(Sometimes three, Ari)
We should probably tell people that when we're rping we won't be doing much others because its difficult otherwise...

Killer Kitty said...

Okay so youight not agree with this but it seems to me that some people want to talk about serious stuff and others want to role play right? So how about.... hmm... that ones a tricky one. Okay so people get really engrossed in the roleplay and tend to forget about the real world. Well it would.be to long to say roleplay one week and serious another because roleplays random and serious happens when serious happens soo.... Okay if you want to talk about something during a roleplay you could call a momentary ceasefire by I dunno pitting ceasefire in caps. Then if you want to burst into spontanious roleplau why don't you put < > them around it like when we put * that around things to signify an action Us that a good idea?

☂Fabi☂ said...

I can talk twice easily, I just feel weird putting parentheses around real life, and I'm already using brackets... Whatever, that's not an issue. I can multitask.

Killer Kitty- Hopefully it won't come to war, but we're still debating, I guess.

#ChaseForBook9

Elder Zafira Kerias said...

Star no kidding. I may want to but if nobody else does i will stick to whatever is going on. I'm not stupid and i dont need the obvious pointed out to me :)

#ChaseForBook9

Killer Kitty said...

Can I I just say splitting up blog land is NOT an option

#ChaseForBookNine

Aretha Tesla said...

I try to speak OOC and sometimes succeed, but rarely. I typically have a hard time figuring out whether or not people need help anyway, but when I'm roleplaying- as two different people, no less- it's near impossible for me. If it's difficult for me, it might be difficult for other people too- that was my thought. And if Luci has commented (which she has) while we were roleplaying and not a single one of us ended up helping her, there's clearly a problem that needs to be addressed.
I actually really want to get back to the roleplay, too- it's been rather traumatizing for me, also- but I think this is more important and we have to deal with it first.

#ChaseForBook9

Killer Kitty said...

Guys why don't we put roleplay inbetween the triangle bracket things, <> then call a ceasefire (CEASEFIRE) when we need to be serious

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

I think that if someone needs help

Really needs help


We need to have them put their words and not post some vague depressing comment but say: "guys please help me I need help" or a specific person to catch their attention.

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

@Zaf: I deserved that. :)

*glares at swollen middle finger on y right hand* WHY ARE YOU SO SWOLLEN CAN YOU NOT JUST DIE DOWN ALREADY.

@KillerKitty: THAT IS SUCH A GOOD IDEA OMGG. O_O

However . . . I get that people might feel too shy to call ceasefires. :/

#ChaseForBookNine

Maralie Lily Charm said...

Why don't we have another blog for roleplaying?

#ChaseForBook9

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

@Adra: But see, some people aren't confident enough to pull heaven and earth to them, especially not when they believe they don't deserve to exist anyway . . . :/

@Ari: I am guilty of ignoring everything unconnected whilst rping. Like other people said, it is like reading a book - you're pulled to it. :/

Um, yeah.

Just showing you I empathise.

#ChaseForBookNine

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

I see what you mean, Mara, but it would be different... Because we'd still be split up, and it wouldn't feel the same, you know? Because it wouldn't be Derek's Blog. And I just don't think it will be as appealing.

Elder Zafira Kerias said...

Splitting up Blogland isnt an option

#ChaseForBook9

☂Fabi☂ said...

I don't want to have to choose between the two...

[hugs Mara]

#ChaseForBook9

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

@Maraness: But that would split Blogland in two. *points upwards*

Although actually, if you think about it, we kind of DO. The MC is essentially a roleplaying blog, except it's in the form of chapters. O_O

If there's a separate blog for it, Maraness, there will be separate communites. We'll lose a lot of the rpers and the rpers will lose me, sorry. It's not that I like chatting better than roleplaying, it's just that sooner of later, let's think about sooner, I will just go THIS IS TAKING TOO MUCH TIME AND I JUST CANNOT FUCKING BE BOTHERED and leave, because that is EXACTLY what happened with MC. It was too time-consuming, I was getting majorly left behind, and you wouldn't have missed me, so I left.
That will happen with a rp blog.

#ChaseForBookNine

Killer Kitty said...

@Mara also if we did that there would be arguments over who left this blog.

We need to figure this out. There has to be a simple solution. One that won't pressurise people but at the same time won't split up blogland. Hmmm.... think people think!

Aretha Tesla said...

*points at Star's comment* I agree- I don't think people will be willing to be so up front about it and cause a huge fuss, even if they really need to.

If most people are actually capable of speaking normally and within the roleplay simultaneously, then I guess it's fine, but the thing is it has to actually work. I usually roleplay as two characters at once and, as Adra pointed out, sometimes three, so I get that it might be a lot harder for me than the rest of you. And, now that I think about it, if I go by my own standards, me being able to roleplay as two characters should prove that people can do both things at once. But I just keep thinking of what Luci said, and she did comment, and was pretty much ignored. So were a few other people- everybody had to yell for a few minutes if they wanted to get a reply. So I'm just saying we need to make sure that doesn't happen.

#ChaseForBook9

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

How about when we post, when we join the do or the talk, we say: *joins rp* or *joins talk* because if you're rping, chances are you're going to not really pay attention.
And brackets can work but people are going to forget and one party doesn't really want to to brackets while the other doesn't have to. (For either one)
And then there's the issue with feelings and needing to talk. I know that it's scary and sometimes you feel ignored, but we all have to try harder at that... I know we all aren't exactly social penguins over here... But if everyone tries to work harder at answering you guys... Could you all maybe try more at addressing us? So we know when to help.

☂Fabi☂ said...

Yeah... [hugs Ari]

I'm not sure how well it'll work as a long-term solution, though... Like, with this all fresh in our minds, we'll be more considerate of other people who aren't in the roleplay, but after a while, I'm worried that'll fade and we'll be back here...

#ChaseForBook9

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

It would be hard for me to speak seriousy and rp at the same time. I have a hard enough time rping anyway, beacusew you CANNOT multitask, ad even without multitasking, I sometimes am only just keeping up.

I can't write out long, heartfelt speeches and roleplay.

We can't properly help people with our hearts and souls and make them feel like we properly care if we're rping at the same time. It's too halfhearted.

#ChaseForBookNine

☂Fabi☂ said...

Um... Should I just switch to asterisks?

I like brackets for actions more because it reminds me of scripts from drama class, but it might get confusing...

Hi Flame.

@Fabi: Gooood point.

@Flame: HEY! *screams*

Sorry, bad timing! See, over the past week we've been epicly roleplaying like we were a year ago, but now we're all debating what to do ebacuse we can't chat and rp at once. D:

@Adra: *joins roleplay*/*joins talk*? EPIC IDEA. :)

#ChaseForBookNine

Killer Kitty said...

G2g now guys when a solution is reached can someone remember it then comment it near the top of the next blog so I can find it. *hugs everyone* *hands everyone a cookie* *waves* *is surrounded by shadows and when the shadows clear is GONE*

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

HOWABOUT WE ALL JUST TRY AND START FRESH WITH THIS.

And we can wipe out all bad thoughts and feeling and let them go. We need to find a system that works, but we all need to acknowledge that some people need the help, but sometimes won't say it directly, and some people role play, and are too busy to answer.
Simultaneously, no party wants to put brackets, because that is too much to remember every time.

What if we added "talk" or "rp" to our names every time we were doing one, but if we wanted to crossover, we go:
(Rp: etc etc etc)
Or
(Talk: etc etc etc)

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

Hey flamers!

Aretha Tesla said...

Hi Flame! *waves*

Adra, that's a good idea, but I'm very hesitant to ask people go try and make us notice them more, because that means we pretty much just go back to where we were before. And as Star pointed out, no one is going to try too hard to draw attention to themselves when they feel worthless. It's hard enough to comment anything at all. We can't ask that of people.

And I'm worried about what Fabi said- that we'll be more careful for a while, but after some time fall back into the same problem.

Fabi, your brackets are fine- we can figure it out.

#ChaseForBook9

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

Hey flamers!

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

*hugs Kitty* FOURS! :(

OR OR OR, guys, we could put our display names like:

Hunter - roleplaying

Although you'd have to put the roleplaying/talking bit before your jepic long titles. :)

#ChaseForBookNine

Aretha Tesla said...

Ok, my previous comment was about Adra's first idea- I like the second one a lot. We might actually be able to have completely separate things going on in the same place with that. Like, there have been times when three people who wanted to talk came on at once, but they all thought everyone was roleplaying, so they left. Changing the names could be a great idea, so people would know who they can talk to easily and who they might need to be more direct to get attention from. We could hypothetically have a group of people chatting and a group of people rping on the same page at the same time. I like that idea a lot.

#ChaseForBook9

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

You're a pretty confident person, Adra (THAT'S GOOD THING).

Whereas some peoples, like me, are just shy and go hide in corners. XD

@Flame: No, because you can only roleplay when the right people are here and it is moving. It doesn't happen at will. Like you can't sit down at a computer, think WRITE, and write. You have to wait for the flow before you can go with it. :)


And, when people need help, they need help THEN. My friend has a badge that says 'SHIT HAPPENS' on it and it's epic, and shit does happen, and when shit happens, it doesn;t just say "Oh hey now would be a good time to happen I'll happen now", r "Nah hell naw I won't happen now coz they're roleplaying" - SHIT JUST HAPPENS WHEN SHIT HAPPENS, AND SHIT HAPPENS, AND THAT BADGE IF EPIC, AND SUPERNOODLES.

I like the name change thing...

Aretha Tesla said...

Zaf, you would just put 'roleplaying' on the end of your name. For example:

Aretha Tesla- talking

Niccolò Croatoan- roleplaying

And if I have roleplaying in my name but I want to spend one comment just chatting, I write
Talking:
In front of the comment, so people don't get confused. Does that help?

#ChaseForBook9

Oh...im not a fan of changing my name but eh whatever ill do it

#ChaseForBook9

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

@Aretha: That's actually a good idea. I mean like, if it fails, we can always sit down and chat again. :)

@IVY: WHERE THE HELL HAVE YOU BEEN YOU'VE BEEN MOANING ABOUT WANTING OLD BLOGLAND BACK FOR YELLOW SHOWER CURTAINS KNOW HOW LONG AND THEN YOU MISSED I WHEN IT CAME BACK AND EPIC ROLEPLAYING. :)

Okay, so I figure, anyone who wants to roleplay now - ROLEPLAY NOW???
