But seriously, this world you've created feels real from the getgo, which I find a lot of people coughmecough struggle with, so congrats!
at least you can actually write something and get it published. Me? I'm basically hoping i can regain my energy and motivation after school has ended. I fully plan to finish at least a chapter a week, in Summer Break.
That's a great plan! I (somehow) used to be able to make a writing schedule and stick to it, but I can't really anymore.
The best advice I can give you for this part of the writing process is to just write. It doesn't have to good, perfect, or even coherent. As long as you are putting letters (or numbers) onto a page, you are advancing the story in one way or another.
AT NEW YORK's Kennedy airport today, an individual - later discovered to be a public school teacher - was arrested trying to board a flight while in possession of a ruler, a protractor, a slide rule, and a calculator. At a morning press conference, the U. S. Attorney General disclosed that he believes the man to be a member of the notorious al-gebra movement. He is being charged by the FBI with carrying weapons of math instruction.
"Al-gebra is a fearsome cult," he declared. "They seek average solutions by means and extremes, and sometimes go off on tangents in search of absolute value. They use secret code names like 'x' and 'y' and refer to themselves as 'unknowns,' but we have determined they belong to a common denominator of the axis of medieval with coordinates in every country. As the Greek philanderer Isosceles used to argue, there are three sides to every triangle."
When asked to comment on the arrest, the President stated, "If God had wanted us to have better weapons of math instruction, He would have given us more fingers and toes. I am gratified that our government has shown us a sine that it is intent on protracting us from these math-dogs, who are willing to disintegrate us with calculus disregard. Murky statisticians love to inflict plane on every sphere of influence. Under the circumferences, we must differentiate their root, make our point, and draw the line."
The President warned, "These weapons of math instruction have the potential to decimal everything in their math on a scalene never before seen, unless we become exponents of a Higher Power and begin to factor in random facts of vertex."
The Attorney General concluded, "As our Great Leader would say, read my ellipse. Here is one principle he is uncertain of: though they continue to multiply, their days are numbered as the hypotenuse tightens."
"so there's a far-off place that consists of a perfectly triangular lake surrounded by land, with three kingdoms on the three sides of the lake. The first kingdom is rich and powerful, filled with wealthy, prosperous people. The second kingdom is more humble, but has its fair share of wealth and power, too. The third kingdom is struggling and poor, and barely has an army.
The kingdoms eventually go to war over control of the lake, as it's a valuable resource to have. The first kingdom sends 100 of their finest knights, clad in the best armor and each with their own personal squire. The second kingdom sends 50 of their knights, with fine leather armor and a few dozen squires of their own. The third kingdom sends their one and only knight, an elderly warrior who has long since passed his prime, with his own personal squire.
The night before the big battle, the knights in the first kingdom drink and make merry, partying into the late hours of the night. The knights in the second kingdom aren't as well off, but have their own supply of grog and also drink late into the night.
In the third camp, the faithful squire gets a rope and slings it over the branch of a tall tree, making a noose, and hangs a pot from it. He fills the pot with stew and has a humble dinner with the old knight.
The next morning, the knights in the first two kingdoms are hungover and unable to fight, while the knight in the third kingdom is old and weary, unable to get up. In place of the knights, the squires from all three kingdoms go and fight. The battle lasts long into the night, but by the time all the dust is settled, only one squire was left standing -- the squire from the third kingdom.
And, it just goes to show you that the squire of the high pot and noose is equal to the sum of the squires of the other two sides."
Well, it's a very long and very interesting story; you see, your great-great-aunt had a fortune, but the thing with the word "had" is that it indicates that it was lost, for it was lost, lost at sea I mean; however, miraculously it showed up on the shore of VFD, where it was then put away, never to be seen again, until your great-uncle, who was against your great-great-aunt from the very beginning, stole it back; that would have been the end of the fortune, except that, when he died, he left it all to whoever your caregivers are, whether they be your parents or other for I do not know your home life, for they were the only ones he could trust to not mock his dragon-hiding talents, and thus would understand the importance of stealing the fortune; however, in a cruel twist of fate, your caregivers accidentally signed a paper declaring that any fortunes were to be given up to the government, but before it was to be taken away, they hid a very large sum of it in your attic, thinking that perhaps it would come to use; they turned out to be right, for when you broke your arm, you unknowingly created a pact with a nearby gang member, who was looking for someone to pretend to break their arm as part of a complicated signal, to share any fortune they had, as to further the gang; so, they stole the fortune and meant to give only half to you, except that they died in the event -- those vicious cane toads, with their crazy cults -- and thus you, instead of your caregivers, was now in full control of the fortune, which we of course put in a shared account when we got shipped and not married. However, also at the time at which we were shipped and not married, we created a will saying that if, at any time, we were not part of Comet's and Ember's family, then they would get the fortune; just now, that returned to bite us in the ankles as we mistakenly disowned them for their puns, and thus since we are no longer a part of their family, they have obtained our enormous and possibly exploitable fortune.
you don't remember having any kind of fortune because you thought it had been stolen by crows.
oh, and I didn't have any part in the fortune because my fortune really was stolen by crows
Wow... we should actually write a family history... and make a family crest...
It should have crows, and owls, and windows, and cities and alligators and spells and comets and embers and chickens and purpleness and the pictorial representation of hugs and crazy yaks and Count Olaf and... -Pants.
So, as many of you know, I haven't been very active lately. I've been thinking, and I've decided its time for me to move on. I haven't really done anything significant here since Spirits, and since it ended I've become increasingly inactive. Most of my friends, like Oonbli, DK, Dark, and Whitey have gone completely inactive (miss you guys). Some of my friends who are still active like Emby and Lighty and Arty have also been less active, so there isn't much more for me here. Also, in the next year I'm going to have a lot of schoolwork and outside of school work to do and I really won't have that much time to be on the wiki.
I'll always cherish Lighy and Emby's RPs, IC and his LPWs, Arty's funny OCs (I still ship Crystalweaver), Dark's friendship, and everyone else on this wonderfully weird wiki. Yoda and I will miss you all, and always remember the great times I've had here.
Yoda: The time for Comet and I to leave has come, and miss you all we will.
Yoda and I may drop in from time to time, but for now...
