@Purple - lower the resolution of my images...? you're kidding, right? i love my (uber) high quality images! i scanned them to be the highest resolution possible! (1920x1080), and the images i drew them on were A4 paper... so the ones where i have lots of shading go up to 120mb. I've scanned some at the lowest (which JUST get under 3mb) and they have unappealing quality. basically... they're fail quality. if i print the lowest resolution image, they're just... terrible. i don't -want- to even have images that bad quality... i mean, all the time i toiled to draw my images wasn't so that i could then show other people the terrible quality versions of them, ya?

@Miss_Yay - long post there! finally read it all... took 10mins fo my life but well spent well... i really think you and M are really in love with each other, but you still both need to get past 1. your responsibilities and 2. the iron wall of tsun tsun and 3. get some confidence. or just "don't think" anyway, soon you and M will have to have a talk about this. talk to her nearer christmas! MAKE her have spare time!! and then pull her to somewhere that's really open. (an endless amount of fields? or a forest?) and then just talk ^^ seriously, just plain talking can lead to lots of things. i'm still seriously anticipating the upcoming finale of your love life. (well, the finale of episode one )

@everyone - whoaaa! i know we all love the no-character-limit but it doesn't mean you should type too much ^^ (although i personally am typing a lot more than i thought i would).

@Smooshi, Azarte, and Dragonbow0 - sorry, but i don't have time to reply to your posts! swimming now <3 i'll try to reply soon! btw, this site is quite a bit better than i originally anticipated.

Opal, I respect your insistence on quality. But now I really want to see your pictures . . . you'll just have to find some *other* site, like photobucket or get a Deviantart account or something, where you *can* upload those pictures, and then just give us a link here. That'd work, yes?

Miss Yay--I've missed that kind of missive from you! Man, the real world does get in the way of the important things like romance, manga, and ranting with friends, dunnit. Sounds like things are pretty hectic, esp. for M. She's vegetarian, huh? I respect vegetarianism, but if you're gonna be serious you need to know what you're doing, because while meat has too much fat and all that it does have some important stuff that lots of veggies don't. If you just operate as veggies = healthy you can end up not getting enough protein and things. Not that I should talk because my diet is distinctly unhealthy. Anyway--make sure she gets legumes and stuff. And peanut butter. Ideally the 100% peanuts kind, the normal kind has ungodly amounts of icing sugar in it, which is why the oil doesn't separate.
M needs to be less workaholic, for sure. I hesitate to discourage anyone from doing stem cell research because I have this feeling in the back of my mind that that kind of thing may yet result in anti-aging treatments before I snuff it. ;)

The story about stories was so touching--you two are so in love. So do something about it! You both express yourselves well in writing. Write her a love letter. Really, how long you gonna let her duck?

@ Kaoii

Well, right now, I feel a little depressed. I just finished watching Ga Rei Zero, and it's so tragic, that I can't even cry. It's not even Yuri, but there are strong subtexts in it, and I wish that the ending wasn't what it was, but that's how it is. *sigh* I feel so empty and so very listless... I just can't believe it. Just can't believe it... Tell me, "would you kill someone you love, out of love?" (Quote from Ga Rei Zero)

And also, it's okay to feel guilty. But hey, you have to go on. In time, you'll get a new significant other, but Pickle will always remain as your first girlfriend. She's in good hands, so you don't need to worry, and besides, it's time to just let the chains that bound you break off. You're a free soul now, so feel free... Feel happy, feel life.

@ Miss Yay

You aren't being arrogant. It's so painfully obvious that she loves you, and as the teacher says, she has an ingenious talent for channeling her feelings into her writings.... In all honesty and respect, don't you think it's time for you guys to step beyond the border of friendship and embrace each other as lovers? Sorry if my replies seem too short, but I am hit by depression.. I can't really feel your happiness, or everyone else's, sorry.

@ Opal

I agree with Purple's post.

@ everyone.
Quick post:.
I'll post replying to each of you when I 'collect my thoughts'.

@ ember
( I felt compelled to reply to ember about Ga Rei Zero, sorry to be unfair.)
I watched Ga Rei Zero. I bawled for about a day just thinking about it.
Another tearjerking anime is Kanon and Clannad. Clannad really made me feel almost suicidal (kidding, but it was sad...).

But yes, anime is my source for depression nowadays.
But thank you, ember. I don't feel free though. I feel lost.

This place seems cozy. *Picked a spot and pulled out a chair*

Well, these few days, I've been so busy doing my projects which until now, is still piled up like a mountain. Took me quite some time to finish reading all these posts. Seems like everyone has been doing well. And I'm so glad that there isn't a character limit here. Now i can write all the crap i wanted to. Hahas. but you guys would have to suffer because of all the long posts. And it would take some time to finish reading them. But i'm going to miss the emoticons on MF more. Their emoticons are better, but i can't argue since this site allows us to be able to speak our mind freely here

Well, about the new girl, let's call her Z, can't really think of other nickname. and i can't possibly call her the new girl all the time. Well, I decided to start out by making friends with her about a few days ago. So I tried talking to her these past few days, wanting to make friends with her. But i quite bad at making a conversation with her, I would stammer a little here and there, then i would pretty much try rephrasing the whole question. And her answer would mostly be like between 1-3 words. I'm getting the idea that she thinks that I'm a weird person for trying to rephrase the whole question again and again in front of her. Or most likely, she feels that I'm a boring person and being friends with me isn't much fun at all. I'm like so confused now. And with the project work piling up, i rarely see her in class because we are arranged to meet the teacher at different time slots. So whenever i end school, she either ended earlier than me or she end later than me. I'm beginning to hate the school now. I can't even sneak a peek at her in class because of the different schedules!!! I wonder, maybe we aren't fated to be together that even heaven is doing all they can to stop me.

@ Meifang

Puh! Who cares about what the heavens think? People have defied evil, so can't we defy the gods as well? I believe though, that every love is blessed, and we need to cherish it as much as we can.

And OMG, another shy person who struggles to light up a conversation with a crush! D: Well, the number of crushes is different, but still...

Why don't you try asking questions about her favorite movies and such? Movies always pave the road for a well done conversation. Everybody sees them, so at least you would have something to talk about. Try to poke her brain and take hints from what she says; you might find out one of her interests through what she says. You see, the key to being a good conversationist, first and foremost, is to be naturally interested in that person. You forget about talking to yourself, because people tend to like talking about themselves more than they like hearing about yourself, so make them feel good, make them feel important, and throw in sincere compliments. I'm not saying to appear like a complete suck up, but show that you're listening intently to what they're saying.

Also, before you go in for "the kill", try to determine her sexuality. If she's bisexual, or even better, lesbian, then your chances rise by a landslide, although that doesn't guarantee that she will feel the same way. So right now, just do what you're doing: trying to get to know her better, and becoming good friends. As the saying goes, "Love without the base of friendship holding it up will be shaky, like a sand castle near the waves..." Well, at least that's how I remember it.

@ Kaoii

Awww.. Poor you. Ga Rei Zero is a real heart breaker. Stupid albino, butterfly kid! Freakin' A-hole!!

Oh, and by the way, here are some AMVs to make you more depressed, tributes to KaguraxYomi:

(Warning: These contain spoilers for the anime. Unless you've watched it, I highly recommend you don't watch the AMVs)



@ Everyone else

It's a Filipino Christmas song. I know you guys won't be able to understand it at all, but listen to it like you listen to a Japanese song.

Wow! Way to go Aztarte! Now think back to when you first came to "um . . ." all sad an' confused. Could you have imagined back then making a memory like that? This is way happier, yes? I'm sure the message is OK. And I think you made her feel way better, too. I have a feeling she really needed that evening.

I've never seen Ga Rei Zero, but if it's as tear-jerker-ish as Clannad (specially Clannad AfterStory or whatever it's called, the sort of second season thing) then yeah. Whoa, I just had the tears trickling down in places for that one. But of course you know what you do about that, right? You watch something cheerful and funny. Lovely Complex, or Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge (aka The Wallflower), or if you want to go old school maybe Irresponsible Captain Tylor (I loved that show--it was hilarious, and it seemed meaningless, but if you look close you realize it took all the dramatic science fiction and military anime tropes and pulled them inside out; it totally subverted the whole gung ho subtext of a lot of anime stuff). Or outside of anime maybe The Princess Bride, or Monty Python's The Meaning of Life, or something. Great antidotes for the depressing shows. So Ember, watch something like that and cheer up, what?

Meifang, it may well be that she's also shy, just, you know, in the quiet monosyllable kind of way rather than the trip-over-tongue-repeatedly kind of way. So don't lose hope. Emberslave's advice seems good to me--I've never been awesome at striking up conversations with people I don't know, myself. Well, unless I see them reading a science fiction book or something. Give me a common interest to work with and I can murfle happily about it.

Oh, ya, Ka0ii/Smooshi--Emberslave's right. It's good, you know--seems like you two had some great times and nobody did anyone wrong, so now you can go do other things, but you can always have that warm spot in your heart remembering something precious. I'll always remember my first girlfriend. In hindsight, we would have made a lousy match in the long term. But she was a sweet lass and we made each other happy; I have no regrets and the memories are fond.

@MissYay - stop procrastinating and give us just as long rant about M and how you two actually get together >_>

@Aztarte - indeed, like MissYay and Purple said, good job ^^ i'm quite amazed you kept your cool in those situations (i'd personally would have stolen some of her pizza, to return the gesture, but one step at a time ya?). also, like Purple said, you've matured again even though you're older than me you're still maturing... bah >_> i don't wanna mature anymore !!! siiiiigh...

@Smooshi - like purple said (damn you purple... always having more spare time than meh...) your first love is, 99% of the time, a hopeless romance. i remember mine all i have is good memories from it. i remember my first kiss. it was raining that day, and we had been walking in a forest nearby my house. i even remember the way we kissed ^^ sometimes i wish i could run back into my ages of naivety, even though i'm only 15. but i can't. so i don't. and if i lose my place on my path, i merely create a new path. if you can't find your way, why try to find it when you can make your own way? there's a reason why humans are so complex. it's to give us innumerable amounts of possibilities.

for example (science rant starts here). every single human, has millions of nerves in their body, right? each nerve does something specific kay? well... if we have millions of nerves and each nerve can connect to hundreds of thousands of other nerves, each connection creating a new possibility, we have that many possibilities of things we can do with our lives. we don't have to choose the normal and common ways. we can try new ways which no one has travelled before.

oh ya, here's a random science fact. there are more possible connections in a humans nervous system, than there are atoms in the milky way. perhaps more than in the entire universe.

@ Miss Yay

Aaaaah! The POCKY SCENE!! I loved that! So sexy. But it seems as if Yomi really did love Noriyuki, although I still thought he was a complete, worthless and cowardly wuss. He was just making up excuses to let himself off the hook. The pathetic bastard wasn't even there when Yomi needed him! As you can see, I hate him... a lot.

NorixYomi= NO KaguraxYomi= LOVE

I still think they both love each other as more than just "sisters" you know.

@ Opal

... Crap! Am I the only person here with "virgin" lips!? I want to feel a kiss too!

And for a "fifteen" year old, you're too science-orientated.. And busy... And tall. That's why Purple has much more time than you, and that's why I've got much more free time than all of you.

(I thought you were in high school at first.. Around 17 or even 18?)

@ Everyone: I'll never be able to watch any seires like a tear jerker, becuase they don't make me cry they just get me down. Thats why I love light mangas like strawberry shake, which is a great series. Everyone seems to be progressing at an impressive rate so, and there is nothing I can complain about. My girlfriend and I spent the other night making meat buns and Pork Ramen( Yakibuta to be more exact) so it was epic ^.^.

@Ember: Dont go wasting your first kiss it has to something memorable! According to your ages right on your profiles your both 15. I agree that "KaguraxYomi= LOVE". Im obessed with science I just havent ranted on it here in an attempt to control myself. I have way to much free time, but thats because I mess around on sites like this while working on stuff XD.

@ember:
Since you've mentioned Ga Rei Zero, now I'm compelled to draw some fan-art. =D
My brain's been telling me to draw some sort of fanart anime thing, and now I have reason to.


@Purple, Opal, ect.
You guys make it look so easy to look back on your first love and think of happier times, of course, that's what I'm trying to do, but it just hurts remembering. I'll try harder.

@Smooshi - Naw, when i got dumped the only way to speak was that i was totally gutted it's just that i find it stupid to look on the bad parts now that i've got over him ^^ and to tell you the truth, i'm kinda glad we split up. why? because i like being free! being pulled down by an anchor called "relationship" is most tiresome. i'm a bird (or a chick like the pun?) that flies high, and far! with a weight like that, it's like cutting off my wings, and no matter how beautiful i am (so vain!), i will never forgive them for doing such a thing.

@Dragonbow0 - Strawberry Shake = win. no matter how many times i read it, it's gorgeous! so kawaaaaiii!!! especially when they dress up goth for zlas (i think that's their name) julia is just so amazing...

@purple - then get a job! bring in some income - well, so long as it's at the most officiant cross between highest pay possible and seeing your daughter enough as well. getting a cross between those are hard i know ^^

@ember - you think i wanna be busy? naw, i despise being busy >_> if i had 3 extra hours per day, i'd spend those hours sleeping. most nights i fall asleep at about 11pm, and wake up at 7am. so i just about get enough sleep. i'd prefer 10h of sleep though! seriously >_> and me? tall? 5.7? no. i'm one of the smallest in my year. it's so annoying being looked down upon -.- mind you, since my year has not many people in, it's okay 'cose i still (just about) taller than those in the year below also, don't waste your virgin lips! they're only virgin once.
