OHMYGOD

Georgie HasNoIdea said...

eee can't wait for the email!!!

Loki of Asgard said...

Ahem. That was, very unlike me.

Hello, Midgardian they call Derek Landy, the supposed Golden God.

Laoise:) said...

Wow

Loki of Asgard said...

What about those of us unfortunate enough to be American, you said we would be able to join in?

I love it even more in black and white!!! I

Star Inkbright said...

IF I HADN'T GONE ON A HUNT FOR ICE LOLLIES I MUGHT HAVE BEEN FIRST. :P

Hmm . . . I think I prefer the other cover . . . not that this one isn't magnificent; it's just that the other one is really, really good (possibly the best cover yet), so . . . XD

Ivy Shade: Grand Mage of the Canadian Sanctuary, Queen of the Land of Rainbow Hamsters, Reader of Books, and General of the Candy Army said...

And the theatre of shadows email!!! This day can't possibly get better!!!!

Book Crazy said...

WOW!

Book Crazy said...

7th!

Loki of Asgard said...

I take that as, Derek is not reading, or I scared the Midgardian. Pity, then again, he really isn't a god.

Star Inkbright said...

Alastair is awesome though . . . :(

Death Rose said...

Boo!))

Fabi S. said...

OOH

Death Rose said...

Fourteenth again? Dear lords, I'm getting good at this.))

Loki of Asgard said...

Alastair lacks a soul.

Valkyrie V. Cain - Ivy the Fangirl said...

Derek, it still doesn't work for Americans...

Death Rose said...

Alastair has a soul. Souls are saved for humans. Not Gods.

Alastair Cruciatus said...

Oh, I have a soul, alright. Trip certainly proved that. I just don't quite fit in to your standards of morality.

And no, Death, I will not say hello to any of my names for you.

Death Rose said...

Why? Niccolo is cool! *She sent a glare towards Alastair, revelling in the joy of being able to use her powers against someone again*

Star Inkbright said...

Of course Alastair has a soul. He's a person.

Saying that only humans have souls is rather racist, however. :P

NICCOLO IS COOL. :/
Poor Niccolò . . . :/

General Luciana Clover Scáth; Leader Of the New Land Of Stickers; Prophet Of The New Order (AKA the Insane Khaleesi Of the Rainbow People); Grand Mage of Skuttlebuggia/Little Bird/Mushroom said...

I hate being broke omg.


At least I finished Imperfect though:)

Alastair Cruciatus said...

*grins at Death* Am I meant to want to make you stop?

Star Inkbright said...

@Mushroom: Well. :( and yay? :)

Star Inkbright said...

Heh.

You can say both "Armageddon-Outta-Here is here" and "Armageddon-Outta-Here is out."
This amuses me for some reason.

General Luciana Clover Scáth; Leader Of the New Land Of Stickers; Prophet Of The New Order (AKA the Insane Khaleesi Of the Rainbow People); Grand Mage of Skuttlebuggia/Little Bird/Mushroom said...

And whilst we're near the top of a page:

Flora is taking a break from the blog. Whether she's leaving completely or returning one day soon, I don't know. She's just not having a great time at the minute and needs some time out. She says she might be on her Facebook and her twitter, but she's not sure.

Death Rose said...

*She cackles and kicks as she falls to the ground* No! *Tears stream down her face* I missed this! *She sits back up and increases the glare, thrusting more, and more magic into it*

Loki of Asgard said...

*goes to Alastair and pokes with sceptre in heart, then vanishes a few feet away*

Star Inkbright said...

@Mushroom: Oh . . . okay. :/ *long-distance hugs Flora*

Death Rose said...

(*Hugs Luce*

*Hugs Flora despite her not being here right now*

*Sobs quietly and nods*))

General Luciana Clover Scáth; Leader Of the New Land Of Stickers; Prophet Of The New Order (AKA the Insane Khaleesi Of the Rainbow People); Grand Mage of Skuttlebuggia/Little Bird/Mushroom said...

Oh, hello everyone by the way:)

Death Rose said...

(Hey Luce!))

Alastair Cruciatus said...

*dematerializes to avoid Loki's scepter* *his breaths become strained as Death continues to glare*

General Luciana Clover Scáth; Leader Of the New Land Of Stickers; Prophet Of The New Order (AKA the Insane Khaleesi Of the Rainbow People); Grand Mage of Skuttlebuggia/Little Bird/Mushroom said...

Hey Rose! You doing okay?

Loki of Asgard said...

Keep glaring, perhaps he will let Niccolò back.

((Switching to phone so I be distantish-Zaffg

Star Inkbright said...

You know, in English, I occasionally freak out because I can't do things, like Sir tells us we have to write down what politeness is and I'm just like WHAT DO YOU MEAN and WELL THAT DEPENDS and IT DEPENDS WHICH SITUATION IT IS and like AND EVEN WHICH COUNTRY IT IS BECAUSE POLITENESS IS DIFFERENT IN DIFFERENT SOCIETIES AND DIFFERENT CONTEXTS and I just freak out because I don't know what exactly I'm meant to write and so I just kind of get tangled over it.
(Like how when my mum went for one of her first job interviews to try and be a teacher and they asked her how she would teach writing, and she just froze, because she was just thinking "What do you mean which type of writing do you mean handwriting do you mean storywriting what I don't know" and so she didn't know how to answer.
But, see, in our first biology lesson of this topic, he told us we had to open our books and draw an animal behaviour.
And I was just like EHHHHHHHH because I had no clue what he meant, and we hadn't been taught what behaviours were, but you see, the thing is . . . I knew he'd meant to freak us out intentionally, and I knew he wanted us to draw what we thought a behaviour was before he taught us for a reason, to see what we already knew, and I also knew that it was a challenge, and he was seeing how well we could deal in these situations, and I didn't want to be one of those people who can't do anything without the teacher because that's just kind of pathetic and it's better if you can do these things on your own, so although I spent the majority of our drawing time freaking out, I was just like "Okay, you have to do SOMETHING" and kind of got my act together and drew something.
And so now when I freak out about stuff, I just think "Pretend it's biology", and it helps me look upon it more as a challenge and with more of an inclination to get over it.
And I realise that "pretend it's biology" is a me-specific thing and it doesn't work for other people, but just a tip - if you think you can't do something, then all you really need to do is shift your perspective.
Like sometimes I feel kind of D: about something, and then I think about how a character of mine would think and how they would deal with it, and that helps.
Like in PE once when we had to sit in a classroom because there were no facilities available or something, and so they told us to design a game.
And we were just like ?????!!!!!??????!!!!!!!! like WHATTTTTT HOW????????????
And I was staring at my sheet of paper incomprehensibly like everyone else, and then I thought "I bet Hunter would be able to think up a game."
And then I thought "Okay, if you were making up a part of your story, and you had to make up Hunter making up a game . . ."
And then suddenly I'd made up a game. O_O
Just these little twists in your way of thinking about things really help. :)

And so, you know . . . I hope all of you people can find metaphorical biologies for you. Because they are there, and they will help.

Death Rose said...

*The cackle grows. It's no longer a laugh. It's crazed. Her eyes are wide, and reflect the same insanity that is echoed in her cackle. They continue to glare.*

*Then she stops. As if frozen in time for a split second, with a mix of awe and horror on her face, before she falls back to the ground, unconscious*

Star Inkbright said...

Woah. O_O

*watching the roleplay, all you people :)*

*I'm happy we've got roleplay back . . .*

*That was a good roleplay yesterday, with Silente and the arena and Dugglyn and Elleni rescuing her. :)*

Death Rose said...

(And this is why I'm not a genius, Bubbles. My brain don't function like that. I just go, "sharpening my pencil, my pencil, my pencil!" And that's what my brain does. Woah...

Yeah... I've been better. Can't sleep tonight. It's almost 2am. Lords save the dogs!!))

Alastair Cruciatus said...

*takes a few deep breaths as Death falls unconscious* You really ought to think it through before you attempt to control me, Loki.

Death Rose said...

*In her mind, voices darted around, becoming lost in the darkness.*

What happened why who the hell decided that shut up stop no I want control no she's mine who the hell are you not you so I deserve her no she's mine give me her now no you bastard you had her first it's my turn like hell you said I don't care what I said it's my turn I deserve her now no you know she had a power overload she hadn't used her powers like that since...

*Silence. No one wants to mention what everyone is thinking. The bickering picks up again*

Star Inkbright said...

@Death: I'm not a genius. I just like analysing. :P
*hugs*
And I don't care if you're not a genius. You're awesome. :)

((Death's head sounds chaotic . . . :O))

Death Rose said...

(Pfft! You lie. But I forgive you!
*Hugs back*

Oh, that isn't chaotic. It's so much worse. You should hear it after no sleep. Stay on for another 6+ hours and then I'll give you an excerpt of what chaotic actually is!))

Loki of Asgard said...

I know what I want, and controlling you would make it happen.

Alastair Cruciatus said...

*is half tempted to lend Death a few of the extra voices in his head, just to add to it* *considers*

Sir Reingington said...

I find it highly ironic that, despite Loki's status as a "frost giant", he neither physically nor intellectually looms over anything greater than the common grasshopper.

Alastair Cruciatus said...

Sure, but you ought to think through how you'll manage it. I won't make it easy on you.

General Luciana Clover Scáth; Leader Of the New Land Of Stickers; Prophet Of The New Order (AKA the Insane Khaleesi Of the Rainbow People); Grand Mage of Skuttlebuggia/Little Bird/Mushroom said...

Mymumjustpreorderedmetheprettyeditionoftdotlohmygoldengod

Alastair Cruciatus said...

Well said, Sir.

Loki of Asgard said...

If you noticed, I want nothing to do with them.

What do you mean, Alastair? You're human, and you have a heart.

Star Inkbright said...

@Sir: Oh my gosh. XD
*hugs*

@Mushroom: Yaaaaaay! :)

@Death: I don't lie, seriously.
But thanks. :) :)
And - O_O
*looks at clock*
I should still be here in six hours. XD

Death Rose said...

*She sits up, her eyes turning from shocked to smug. Se stands up and brushes herself down. Her eyes drift towards Loki, and she grins demonically*

I do despise you, we all do. I, of course, have much more of a reason to do so than Death and that pathetic little Judhipor.

Alastair Cruciatus said...

The fact that I have a heart hardly guarantees that you'll be able to reach it. *sighs* My, you're thicker than I thought.

Death Rose said...

(*Hugs Ink again* I'm alright, that's just me. Deathy is alright. Not awesome. Just alright, alright? ^.^))

Star Inkbright said...

*alright-left-diagonal-up-down-backwards-forwards-straight on-curvy-circular-multiple directions-invisible directions-non-existent directions. :P

:P

*hugs Death* :)
And you are awesome, but eh. :)

Avaran Runeweaver said...

I have watched this blog for a while from the "shadows". I decided I would finally make an account and comment on the blog. I have tried multiple times to use the theatre of shadows, but it says that I am not eligible. Does anyone know why this may be?

Loki of Asgard said...

No, its because you are a very abnormal being.

Zanida: Alice, play nice with Loki.

Loki of Asgard said...

If you're American, that will explain everything.

Avaran Runeweaver said...

Ah, The American Problem, Ok thank you.

Alastair Cruciatus said...

And once again, you've completely missed the point. If you want to hit me with the scepter, you have to strategize. Catch me at a time where I won't or can't defend myself. Set me up. Manipulation is hardly difficult.
What is it that you want from me, anyway?

Loki of Asgard said...

I can't get what I want from you, I need a different name out.

Death Rose said...

*The new being in Death's body pouts and looks around. It stretches out its arms, confused with the feeling* Ot's all mine. It's actually all mine! *She laughs, maniacal as ever*

Alastair Cruciatus said...

I can promise you won't get anything out of Niccolò as he is now.

Star Inkbright said...

((Niccolò is pretty broken. Yeah. Alastair's correct about you not getting anything out of him.))

Alastair Cruciatus said...

*his eyes become completely black as he stares at Death's name* Fascinating.

Loki of Asgard said...

That's not the name I want, keep guessing. I find it amusing.

Star Inkbright said...

((Oh okay. Cool. :)))

Death Rose said...

*It dismisses Alastair's words, or at least tries to. It walks towards him, grinning, tilting its head to the side* I do have a feeling that I like you. Death didn't like you. Judhipor was fine with you, but I can feel it coming off you in waves... *It sighs and lifts one of its hands, as if 'it' is tangible*

Alastair Cruciatus said...

That's interesting, considering how often you seemingly beg me to release Niccolò of my own accord. As far as guesses go, there are only so many names you could possibly be aware of. It's hard to tell which you'd consider useful, really, since you're so illogical and feeble-minded.

Alastair Cruciatus said...

Oh, do you really? There was a time when Death agreed with me about the sadism inherent in human nature, but eventually societal and peer pressures seem to have turned her away again. Perhaps you'll be different.

Death Rose said...

*It shrugs* Death, *It says the name with utmost disgust, as if the very action of speaking the name would make it vomit* Decided that keeping herself alive was the one and only priority. That is why she sides with those of a darker nature. She despises them, but joins to preserve her life. *It places her fingers on Alastair's hand and grins* Oh, you do have it... I do like you immensely.

Silente Tempest/James/James's posse said...

Helloooooooo!
*skips in*
How are we all? Are we happy? Let's be happy!
*starts singing 'If your happy and you know it'*

Charlie Macdonald said...

Just ordered it, maximum excitement!

Death Rose said...

(Hey Silente! I'm... I've been better, I guess... Bit hey! Such is life. How are you?))

Loki of Asgard said...

John Smith, the pacifist.

Silente Tempest/James/James's posse said...

(Im good! I have cookies, i have AOH in my lap and I have sad news to make! But ignore that last bit, that's for later..)

Death Rose said...

(Well, it's almost 3am here and I can't sleep. And it sucks. And it's too hot. And I can't do squat about it.))

Silente Tempest/James/James's posse said...

(*hugs* I'm sorry to hear that Death. I hope it cools down a bit for you :/)

Death Rose said...

(Want to know what makes it worse?

It's winter.

SCREW YOU GLOBAL WARMING!! IM SWEATING IN WINTER WITH NO HEATER, SUMMER PJS AND THIN BLANKET!!))

Silente Tempest/James/James's posse said...

(Oh. Oh that is bad. Er...try lowering the blanket? Swap to underwear instead of pj's?)

Star Inkbright said...

It's summer here and I'm in a jumper and I'm fine . . .

England weather v. Aussie weather. :P

XD

Death Rose said...

(Tried that. Too scared sibling will see iPod light. And for the second option, my brother and I sleep in the same room and that would be awkward...))

Star Inkbright said...

ICE CUBES

I had an ice cube earlier today and they're even better than ice lollies for cooling-down purposes. :)

Star Inkbright said...

@Death: -_-

*virtually hugs, not wanting to transfer body heat to her*
That sounds sucky . . .

Death Rose said...

(This is why I have 6 drink bottles beside my bed. I've already gone through 3 of them in the past... 5 hours.))

Silente Tempest/James/James's posse said...

(That would be awkward. Er.....)

Star Inkbright said...

@Death: -_-
I'm sorry, no suggestions . . . :/ :/

Silente Tempest/James/James's posse said...

(Turn your pillow over. Stick your feet out of the blankets bottom. Keep your head close to the top of the blanket/out of the blanket. Keep your feet and head as cold as possible.)

Death Rose said...

(I might just go get a face washer... Or something...))

Silente Tempest/James/James's posse said...

(That too)

Star Inkbright said...

I don't normally have this problem, unfortunately . . .

*has no ways of dealing*

Star Inkbright said...

Well.
*fortunately

Star Inkbright said...

Put your hands in the air if you hear me out there
I've been looking for you day and night
Shine a light in the dark, let me see where you are
Coz I'm not gonna leave you behind
If I told you that you're not alone
And I showed you this is where you belong
Put your hands in the air
One more time

Star Inkbright said...

You know when you spent a week doing schoolwork and then you go home on Friday like YAAAAAY I'M LIBERATED and then you're like "Um. What do I do now?"
And then you just start doing schoolwork for wont of anything better to do. :P

Star Inkbright said...

*want

. . . ?

Silente Tempest/James/James's posse said...

No...not really Star...

Star Inkbright said...

@Silente: Ah. Maybe I'm just odd. :P
I'm listening to music whilst copying up work into my book though. It doesn't involve any complex thinking and MUSIC so I guess I'm having fun really. :P
And after this I'll do my maths homework. :)

(This feels weird. O_O)

Silente Tempest/James/James's posse said...

I...I think that's classed as weird...



Yey!

Star Inkbright said...

I think it is weird . . . :P

What else would I do, though?

(Play Plague!
Oh yes.
O_O)

Has anyone here read ASOIAF?!

I just started and oH MY GOOD GOLDEN GOD <3

Silente Tempest/James/James's posse said...

Not sure Lucifer, what does ASOIAF stand for?

Charlie Macdonald said...

@Luciana - It gets better and better.

General Luciana Clover Scáth; Leader Of the New Land Of Stickers; Prophet Of The New Order (AKA the Insane Khaleesi Of the Rainbow People); Grand Mage of Skuttlebuggia/Little Bird/Mushroom said...

A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE!



Oh my God I love his writing style and the Starks omg <3
I'm of house Lannister, perhaps my adoration for the Starks is peculiar? Haha:3

Death Rose said...

Can't... Sleep... Kill me!!!!!!!)))

Charlie Macdonald said...

Make sure to be careful on the internet, spoilers on ASOIAF are everywhere.

Death Rose said...

(My brain:

Star Inkbright said...

@Mushroom: I haven't, sorry. :/

Heh.
I remember when we read Of Mice and Men in school and you would open some of the school copies and it would have "------- ----- ------" graffitied on the title page and you're just like -_- THANKS.

Star Inkbright said...

@Death: :( *hugs*
Try getting up and then getting into bed again . . . ?
Sometimes works for me.

Death Rose said...

G k L??? NOOOOO!!! I CRIED OMG WAHHABAI I SOBBED IN CLASS WE READ IT LAST TERM OMG WHY I HATE YOU STEINBECK WHY DO YOU HAVE TO BE SO MEAN TO THE STUPIDS!!!

Death Rose said...

So I just sit in the lounge room? What do I do? It's scary. It's dark. I don't like the dark....

General Luciana Clover Scáth; Leader Of the New Land Of Stickers; Prophet Of The New Order (AKA the Insane Khaleesi Of the Rainbow People); Grand Mage of Skuttlebuggia/Little Bird/Mushroom said...

STAR-
We used to have the same! The amount of times I ended up with James May's old books was ridiculous. :P

Star Inkbright said...

Yeah . . . :/
But would it be such a good book if G K L DIDN'T happen?

And - :/ :/ :/
Um . . .
Go out of the lounge room . . . ?

Star Inkbright said...

@Mushroom: :P

Thrust2Ominous said...

I should know if it was ominous

Death Rose said...

Yeah, I know... But where would the drama be then?

I'm scared of the dark, peps... I don't want to go out. I'll just sit up in bed maybe...?

Death Rose said...

THRUST!! OMG HI!!! HOW ARE YOU!!!

Loki of Asgard said...

Where did you find Loki fanfiction?!- Zaffy

Death Rose said...

All throughout fanfiction.net

Death Rose said...

Of course, I say Loki and you appear. To be expected...))

Thrust2Ominous said...

I'm good, you, Death?

I applied to this League of Shadows thing three times... so I hope I don't get kicked out of the club.

Thrust2Ominous said...

Okay... I gotta go. I'm at camp right now. I miss my room and these kids really like asking questions.
Pretty funny sometimes.
Councilloring isn't right for me WHY AM I DOING THIS?!?!

Death Rose said...

I'm... *Starts listing them off on her fingers* Sleep deprived, depressed, hyper, dejected, lonely, disturbed, tired, tired, tired, bored, sick, hot, tired, pissed at global warming, horrified, heartbroken, tired, saddened and a few others.

Alastair Cruciatus said...

That's lovely to know, I suppose.

Death Rose said...

Haha, goodbye, Thrust!

Death Rose said...

What's lovely?)

Death Rose said...

(Naww!! Every time I look at my profile picture...! Aw!! Cutest photo with Coco!! Nawww!!))

Thrust2Ominous said...

Hey, Death (back for this last comment) that sounds just like how it feels to be a councilor!!

Death Rose said...

Try pulling two all nighters... In a row. And not being able to sleep whatsoever I AM DYING RIGHT HERE I SWEAR TO GOD!!))

Star Inkbright said...

Bury all your secrets in my skin
Come away with innocence, and leave me with my sins
The air around me still feels like a cage
And love is just a camouflage for what resembles rage again

So if you love me let me go
And run away before I know
My heart is just too dark to care
I can't destroy what isn't there
Deliver me unto my fate
If I'm alone I cannot hate
I don't deserve to have you
My smile was taken long ago
If I can change, I hope I never know

I still press your letters to my lips
And cherish them in parts of me that savour every kiss
I couldn't face a life without your light
But all of that was ripped apart
When you refused to fight

So save your breath I will not care
I think I made it very clear
You couldn't hate enough to love
Is that supposed to be enough?
I only wish you weren't my friend
Then I could hurt you in the end
I never claimed to be a saint
My own was banished long ago
It took the death of hope to let you go

So break yourself against my stones
And spit your pity in my soul
You never needed any help
You sold me out to save yourself
And I won't listen to your shame
You ran away, you're all the same
Angels lie to keep control
My love was punished long ago
If you still care, don't ever let me know
If you still care don't ever let me know

I need to do word art for this song but I have absolutely NO idea how I would go about it . . .

I know I keep posting these lyrics but I just love this song I'm sorry.

Alastair Cruciatus said...

((That was a response to your last roleplay comment, Death.))

Death Rose said...

(If anybody asks, I so knew that!

Heh...

Whoops...

Thanks !))

*It takes a deep breath in and steps away, nodding. It pauses, a wide grin starting to form on its face. It holds out a hand, pointed at Alastair, and pushes magic into that action, obtaining the same result, but not as strong, as glaring*

Dragona Pine - Geth Platform said...

Hello.

Star Inkbright said...

*watching :)*

Death Rose said...

It's 5am

Alastair Cruciatus said...

*takes a slightly shaken breath, smirking, and shakes its hand*

Star Inkbright said...

@Death: :/ :/
*hugs*

If I knew any techniques for getting to sleep, I'd tell you . . .

Death Rose said...

*It smiles and does a little curtsy* Oh, how I am glad to know that it works. I have tried to get her to do it so many times, pathetic little thing was just too weak. *It shrugs and stops the magic. It grins up at the sky, slowly starting to hover, then propelling itself high into the sky, thrusting out its hand, sending a wave of magic at the tops of the trees. They react the same way as if in the radius of a sonic boom*

Death Rose said...

(*Hugs Star back* Nah bro, I'm weird. I just have weeks where I can't sleep... It sucks, but thanks!))

Star Inkbright said...

@Death: :/ I'm sorry.
And, yeah. :)

Loki of Asgard said...

Zafira: Alastair? Good god, its you in the flesh. How I've actually missed you. How is John?

Alastair Cruciatus said...

*rolls his eyes* What would possess you to think that I'd answer, Zafira?

Dugglyn Carzainia, the wild banshee ninja, commander of all zombie caterpillars, giver of lollipops, tree hugger!!!!! said...

Does anyone know anything about the waterstones book company. my mom is unsure about it. She doesn't understand why the new cover is half off right now and why the website is .com and not .uk. i have no idea why this means anything but she wont let me pre-order it without confirmation.

Death Rose said...

(At this rate, I'll be waking everyone up with, 'WHO AM I? WHO AM I? I AM JEAN VALJEAN!!!!!!!))

Alastair Cruciatus said...

((Waterstones is indeed a legitimate bookstore. My author has been there, while she was in London.))

Dragona Pine - Geth Platform said...

(I normally shop at Waterstones.)

Loki of Asgard said...

Zafira: I really don't know! *randomly goes over to Alastair and hugs him*

Mrgilly94 said...

So I've tried to sign up for the Theatre of Shadows link a couple times now, but it says I'm ineligible and nothing else.

Is it a UK/Ireland thing only?

Dragona Pine - Geth Platform said...

(I think it's only available to people in the UK/Ireland, yes. I think he said so on Twitter.)

Alastair Cruciatus said...

*forces her back into a tree with air*

Death Rose said...

(Mrgirlly94, no, I'm in Australia and it works for me. It has a problem with Americans.))

Death Rose said...

*Mrgilly94

What are the chances that I've typed in MrGirlly to one of my friends previously and it autocorrected. That actually is the darnest thing... Sorry!))

Star Inkbright said...

Waterstones is fine! Waterstones is an awesome bookshop. :)

Loki of Asgard said...

Zafira: Owww!! Why did you do that? *gets up and goes over by Alastair, and after a minute realizes* Alastair, I am so sorry...I haven't been right since they got me free of Loki's control. I really am sorry.

Zanida: *pokes Alice*

((If it annoys you that I call you Alice, I'll stop.-Zanida))

Loki of Asgard said...

Oh its an American thing, you know the I'm American problem we all have? That's why we can't sign up. -Zafira

Star Inkbright said...

Derek's trying really hard to include Americans as much as he can . . . it's not his fault. :/

Alastair Cruciatus said...

*takes a few steps away from both of them* Oh, do shut up.

Silente Tempest /James Venemous / James's Posse said...

Okay I have a dilemma that's making my stomach feel funny so I need you to either chose speach or action. S or A.

Star Inkbright said...

@Silente: S.

(Because I have no idea of the situation, but I have more of an affinity for speech because I definitely do more speaking than acting, myself.)

Dragona Pine - Geth Platform said...

(I vote speech. And btw, it's only spelt speach in American-ish.)

Silente Tempest /James Venemous / James's Posse said...

(*rolls eyes at Dragona* sorry. I get confused. Word shouts at me for using English. So after years of Word at school I've started turning American-ish in spelling.)

Dragona Pine - Geth Platform said...

(SILENTE WHY DO YOU DO THIS? :P


UPHOLD THE SPELLING OF SULPHUR!)

Loki of Asgard said...

Zanida: Wait, Alastair, I really came to talk to you. I'm not going to attack you. I wanted to ask you about your magic, why you can do so much.

Star Inkbright said...

@Dragona: It's spelt 'speach' in American . . . O_O O_O
I never knew that . . .

Heh. One physics lesson I said I didn't know how many zeros there were in a billion, and C told me, and I was just like "That makes no sense", and she was like "Of course it makes sense!" and then I was like "Hang on, THE WHOLE METRIC SYSTEM DOESN'T MAKE SENSE" and I redesigned the metric system on a piece of scrap paper so it made sense and she was like "What? What? What are you doing? That makes no sense!" and I was like "Of course it makes sense!" and she was like "NOOO" and then she drew out the actual metric system and I was like "WHAT WHAT THAT MAKES NO SENSE"
and then suddenly it clicked and I went "HANG ON. THE METRIC SYSTEM DOES MAKE SENSE. YOU'RE CORRECT. I'M WRONG. SORRY"
And she was like I TOLD YOU SO.
And then our physics teacher was walking past and C went MISS I EXPLAINED THE METRIC SYSTEM TO HOLLY and I was like YUP I DIDN'T KNOW HOW MANY ZEROS WERE IN A BILLION and then Miss was like "Did you know, an American billion has a different number of zeros in it?" and we were like WHAAAAAAAAAAAT THEIR SYSTEM MAKES NO SENSE.
:P
Fun times.

Star Inkbright said...

*?

Star Inkbright said...

Also, Silente, there's probably an option you can click to get Word to speak English (England) . . .
Go to the language settings?

I can get Word to spellcheck me in French (France) and German (Germany) C:

Death Rose said...

(It is now able to be wakey times...


No...

Not this torture again....


I HATE YOU GOD OF SLUMBER!!))

Dragona Pine - Geth Platform said...

(Well, yes. Because the Americans don't use the metric system - they tend to use imperial units instead. The metric system makes sense.)

Loki of Asgard said...

((What time is it in Aussie land Rose? Its 3:40pm by me-Zaffy))

Star Inkbright said...

@Death: :/ . . .
I hope you can manage to get to sleep sometime . . .

@Dragona: Oh. :P Okay.

The metric system does make sense to me now . . . XD
I was thinking there should be a hundred thousand millions, originally. :P

Loki of Asgard said...

(Metric makes no sense to me, they force us to learn it in science and I'm like uh yeah can we go to inches and numbers.-Zaffy)

Friendship Manuel said...

*walks in, wearing a shirt for once, face solemn*
Hello. I'm afraid I bring with my brief return some sad news. The being you knew as Silente is...dead. Beheaded in her sleep. I'm sorry to have to tell you this. Her body was found washed up upon the shore not one hour ago. I'm sorry to have reason to inform you of this loss. That is all.
*bows his head*

Death Rose said...

(It is 5:47am in Victoria.


My brain is melting...))

Loki of Asgard said...

Zafira: Get me the body. I brought Javier back from a pile of ashes, I'll bring back a beheaded Silente.

Death Rose said...

*It looks at the newcomer, shrugging slightly* There is one, itty bitty tiby voice in my head that feels like it Gould care. My apologies to those affected, even though I'm not sorry at all. *It shrugs again and lays back, high in the air*

Dragona Pine - Geth Platform said...

(Americans view a billion as a thousand million... but that isn't a billion. They're different things. A billion is a million million, like a million is a thousand thousand. Just like 100 is ten tens.)

Star Inkbright said...

@Zaf: . . . ?

The metric system makes perfect sense!

1 - units
10 - tens
100 - hundreds
1,000 - thousands
10,000 - ten thousands
100,000 - hundred thousands
1,000,000 - millions
10,000,000 - ten millions
100,000,000 - hundred millions
1,000,000,000 - billions

Perfectly logical.
(Sorry if C taught me it wrong. :P)

100 centimetres in a metre, which is obviously from the prefix(/) 'centi', as 'cent' means '100' in, um, Roman or something. Think about 100 cents in a euro/dollar.
(Do you get cents in dollars?)
That's where the word comes from.
Then 1000 millimetres in a metre, which makes less sense, but I'm sure there's a connection somewhere. 10 millimetres in a centimetre. This is confusing, but all centimetre rulers show the millimetre units as well, so you can quickly pick it up.
1000 metres in a kilometre, which also makes perfect sense as 'kilo' means a thousand or something in some language.

WHERE IS THE ISSUE

Inches and feet?
How many inches in a foot?
It's a completely random number!
The metric system fits itself into nice round numbers and all you have to do is count zeros, no complex maths involving odd little units on the end.
(Because simple addition like 275-135 is too hard for me. I tend to run for a calculator when faced with such insurmountable difficulties.
Me being a top set mathematician, you know. :P)

Star Inkbright said...

EH

NO

STOP

STOP MESSING MY BRAIN ABOUT

:P

Friendship Manuel said...

I'm afraid I don't have the body with me. It washed up minus the head and was taken by the police. I'm sorry for your loss. I hope you can move on and find happiness in the darkness.

Dragona Pine - Geth Platform said...

(Star - well, the metric system has been influenced by Americans... but yeah. We SHOULD have 1 billion with 12 0s.)

Loki of Asgard said...

Zafira: Where's the police who took the bloody head?! I'm going to get her back, so god help me if I break a few of my own laws to do it.

Death Rose said...

(That awkward moment when you see a figure in the darkness but it turns out to be your shadow... In the darkness...))

Friendship Manuel said...

It was the local police who collected the body, they got a call from a traumatised child. The head was apparently no where in sight. The police suspect it may have been separated from the body before it was thrown in the sea, possible kept by the beheader.

Star Inkbright said...

@Ddragona: THAT'S WHAT I SAID ORIGINALLY
but if that were so
THEN IT SHOULD GO -

units
tens
hundreds
ten hundreds
thousands
ten thousands
hundred thousands
millions
ten millions
hundred millions
thousand millions
billions

OR

units
tens
hundreds
ten hundreds
thousands
ten thousands
hundred thousands
ten hundred thousands
millions
ten millions
hundred millions
ten hundred millions
thousand millions
ten thousand millions
hundred thousand millions
billions

BUT AS IT IS

it goes
units
tens
hundreds

and I'm just like NO THERE SHOULD DEFINTATELY BEN A TEN HUNDREDS IN THERE TO MAKE IT MAKE SENSE.

Star Inkbright said...

*ten hundred thousand millions

Loki of Asgard said...

Zafira: Very well, I'll be investiagting the death, she's a mage.

Friendship Manuel said...

The police are already on the case m'am. There's no need to bother yourself surely. It could have been a simple mortal who has done it. In which case the mortal police would be the ones suited to handling it.
And no offence meant m'am but mage and vampire are not of the same species.

Dragona Pine - Geth Platform said...

(Star, that would be logical. However, the metric system, although... passable in terms of sense, isn't very logical.
So yeah, makes sense - just has no logic whatsoever.)

Death Rose said...

(NOOOOOOOOOOO!!! It's 6am!!!


My brain is jelly!!!

Hi I I'm like bored jelly!))

Loki of Asgard said...

Zafira: Mage, vampire, we all live longer then mortals. I can revive the dead, it isn't hard. I didn't have any peices of Javier, and I only had Niccolò's arm, the last time I revived someone. It's not hard.

Dragona Pine - Geth Platform said...

This unit has no life span. We will continue until we get destroyed. In the event of deactivation, our programmes will be uploaded to the Geth network and downloaded into another platform.

Friendship Manuel said...

Humans m'am. We are all mortal.

Very well then m'am you may do as you please. I bid you luck on whatever you decide to do.

Star Inkbright said...

@Dragona: See, to me, logic is sense. :P

At least the American system is logical.

*skips into Blogland*
Lalaalalala!!!!!
Dugglyn is Hhheeerrrrreeee!!!!!!!!
How be's yous?!?!
How be's yous eyes?!??!
*has no idea Silente is dead*

Dragona Pine - Geth Platform said...

(Well, it's not really the American system... they just use it in favour of the metric system.
We invented imperial units. So it's technically our system that makes sense. :P)

Loki of Asgard said...

Zafira: Yes, thanks. *sighs* Guys....where's Loki?

((Three things we learned
1. Never ask where Loki is, you just know.
2. Never allow Loki a sniff of power.
3. Never trust Loki
-Zaffy))

Star Inkbright said...

@Dragona: Yeah, but the imperial system doesn't make sense either . . .

EH

:P

NONE OF THE SYSTEMS MAKE SENSE.

*hides*

Dugglyn Carzainia, the wild banshee ninja, commander of all zombie caterpillars, giver of lollipops, tree hugger!!!!! said...

Probably swimming in eyeballs. Idk why I just think so!

Friendship Manuel said...

Hello Dugglyn. I have grave news. The being you knew as Silente is...dead. Beheaded in her sleep. I'm sorry to have to tell you this.

Death Rose said...

*It looks down, finally deciding to land. It walks to Zafira, raising an eyebrow* Loki... How I would like to bust him a new face, but I cannot. Nor do I have a whereabouts on him.
