    I really like having long conversations over the same subject, especially if it's a bit more...emotional. Or personal. Or just something deep and thoughtful. I can't think of the right word to use here.

    As much as I enjoy these late-night conversations, I'm gonna head off to bed in about 5-10 minutes, it's getting late and I have to kinda-sorta be up early tomorrow.

    Maybe. If/when you're ready, I'll be listening.

    I tend not to engage in conversations unless I have something meaningful to contribute, which is why I'm silent and pokerfacing the whole time you, Coffer, and/or Alai start in on the F1 stuff. I know bugger all about anything F1-related, so anything I post related to it will just be meaningless drivel.

    Same here.

    Kortin reminds me of Applejack so much sometimes, it's ridiculous. He's really stubborn and often irritates me, but man, the guy's always there if you need him.

    That's okay. See, because you posted that, he knows that you care--you just don't know how to help. Sometimes just knowing someone cares is enough.

    EDIT:

    Yeah, I really can't stay up any longer. G'night y'all--I'll poke through the next few pages tomorrow morning, so don't hold back on any replies, I'll find them.

    Hey, I like meaningless drivel.

    Yeah, I think I've apologized way too many times for starting those F1-related conversations, but really, if you want to mention something related to it, go right ahead. It's not like I'll be "offended" or anything, I'd actually love it.

    I'm still really surprised by the fact that Vetali is genuinely interested in it. As for Alai, even considering our major differences, he genuinely seems to like commentating on the races with me (I already knew that he was a long-time fan, but he hates me, so I'm still kinda surprised). And I missed having someone to enjoy races with. I missed it so very much.

    And I don't expect anyone to add anything getting it out just helps and unfortunately this is the only place I have and you folks are the only people I have to tell this to. Looks like I shouldn't have said anything as the two people I didn't want to see this did.

    I hate my knee. Hurt it last year in the snow. Every once in a while if I step just wrong it will pop back out and hurt for a few days. Just did that a few mins ago.

    Yeah, though steam will be off when I do stream.

    I don't know. Its a lot to type.

    Well like I said I joined in thread 2. Not to say that you were wrong, cause it just depends whos on and such, but yeah.

    Having to swap guilds constantly for a while taught me how to be more social, sadly. Though most the time I found people that really liked to hang out with me, and people that really hated me. So I'm used to it.

    I have a very fast typing speed, so I guess it doesn't affect me all that much (though I can obviously see why others might have problems with it). It's mostly amplified by how much coding I've had to do up until now, especially in competitions, but still.

    Eh, it's also me just deleting entire sentences/posts because of how stupid they look/sound and stuff...
    Alot of the reason I don't really talk to anyone IRL until I lurk around for a while, also why I lurked so long in these threads until I got a handle on a few people and how they react to things...

    Yeah, I'm kind of like that as well, but my inability to hold back can sometimes cause me to be a bit more...upfront than I'd like.

    Might as well make a non-negative post today.

    So......I don't know here is something random.

    incredibly late post is incredibly late. i found this a long time ago, it's "The Room, Short Version" and it will be the most painful eight minutes of your life should you choose to watch it. it's a really really really bad movie, and i can only assume that this is the least painful way to watch it.



    my job here is done

    Might as well.

    Reason I was irritated (and am) is I stayed up all last night writing, for the first time since middle school, a poem from Sky Shatter to Luna, to be sent to Molestia's mailbox.

    Yeah, it's Molestia, but JJ seems to want to make a serious character out of Luna. Anyway, the mailbox was open, and I spent the night learning all the tenses of Old English, and after many rewrites [Tucuxia: your lines have 12 syllables, iambic pentameter is what you should use; 12 beats feels terrible. Del: But I'll have to rewrite everything! Tux: it's your choice, how accurate do you want this to be? Del: Guh *delete*] I finally finished at 7 in the morning.

    But Sky Shatter's tumblr wasn't up yet, and I get a call that I have to open my store, for the first time in months. I leave with everything nearly finished, and come home 3 hours later than expected.

    JJ had closed the mailbox a few hours before. Who knows when he'll open it again. So yeah, I'm not happy. Who knows where the story will go with the questions he got in the meantime, especially since Luna dropped that she'd like a "special somepony" someday.

    So, for the sake of posterity, here are Sky's heartfelt words to Luna.

    As I bathe alone in the evening sky
    I lose my breath before the wondrous sight
    Of the worlds I've seen, none of them are nigh
    To the beauty thou givest to thy night.

    Eventide's allure twin only to thine
    An endless glittered sea rivaled by none
    Silver light of the peerless moon doth shine
    Her embrace softer than thy sister Sun.

    But loneliness doth pain the empty heart
    So join me, Luna, as one we will fly
    Under starlit heavens, time held apart
    Together as forever passes by.
