    Negative, actually :p If you were looking at my VMs, the Kanade in question is Minamino Kanade of Suite Precure fame.

    Whoopsie, I kind of let the conversation die again.

    Well, the themeing isn't going very quickly, heh. I have my idea, but whether I actually have the skills to execute it (and whether or not I can make heads or tails of the skin-creation interface in vbulletin) is another question entirely. so like me? XD Why, the fact that I was primarily known on PC for having lascivious feelings toward a cartoon character for years shouldn't mean anything at all! :p

    You know, Roman history is one of the holes in my historical knowledge. I red several war chronicles and political histories of ancient Greece (in the original language, even) but Rome eluded me. It's certainly the kind of topic I wouldn't mind doing some independent study on, I just have to shake off this burnout from the excessive reading I had to do in college. Do clue me in on the origin of the Forum if you know.

    Being the slightly forgetful person that I am, I still haven't tested out the chatroom. I had kind of an "I think I'm too old for this place" moment today when I entered the DCC and recoiled at the teenagers talking about their dislike for various academic subjects in school, so I'm now lacking in chatroom confidence. Will I have anything I can actually relate to? Am I anything more than just an oddity at this point? I'm at peace with the fact that I'll never be what I once was here, but I do want to fit in in some respects.

    It just makes me miss member clubs all the more. VMs are so sadly lacking in that party-like atmosphere and aren't good for getting to know people. What were clubs hurting, considering that they didn't add to your post count? (I lost thousands of posts when they made that switch XD)

    Probably because that's what I am. xD

    I'm doing okay, as usual. Nothing interesting to speak of. PC is generally very dead this time of night so I'm always glad to have you on.

    I still use Pokelink, which is what I generally used when I was here. I do switch to Plusle's Play Date now and again for the nostalgia, and I would use Midnight Misty all the time except that for some reason the banner was edited to hastily have an image of Ash slapped on as well. My 14-year-old self doesn't like the eyes he's making at her.

    I'm not much into the Pokemon games themselves anymore, but I do still appreciate the characters. My goal is to make a theme that's dark + neon lights that features Elesa, a gym leader from B/W. My gfx skills are middling, but after reviewing a lot of PC themes, most of the work is just deciding on your color scheme and the only heavy lifting is the banner and background. We'll see if my ambitions result in something or go down in flames.

    Definitely take the time to compare Kishida's artwork to the Totori figure before making a decision. Getting a 2D face right in a 3D space is always a tricky thing and we don't have the luxury of being able to examine Japanese goods in person. Figurine makers need to get with the times and provide hi-res 360º images of products to retailer sites.

    Maybe I'm just trying to sound like I know what I'm talking about with the memories thing instead of actually knowing something, heh. Having a connection to a past that no longer exists can slow down the emerging future, though whether this is a good or bad thing comes down to a case-by-case basis. Sometimes progress is liberating, sometimes it's dehumanizing. But I do think that tradition is necessary for culture to exist at all.

    Hey, now that I'm back, I'm staying whether the dynamic here creates a place for me or not. Maybe those who would have been rapid-fire posters in the DCC in the past have moved to the chat. All the more reason for me to check it out. I suppose it's just that on a forum, I value the method of posting that leaves an eternal record of what was said over the transience of a chat room. Forum posting also leads to more substantial conversation, but maybe I'm being too serious for my own good. Gotta loosen your tie and let the XDs fly sometimes, eh?

    Just saw your most recent message. I've actually never been! Maybe I should fix this. It would certainly be good for my as-of-yet failed reintegration into PC.

    Ah, sorry for not getting back to you right away, I was actually absorbed reading the site styling section (it's hidden to non-supporters) as I'm planning to make a style and I neglected to check my VMs.

    About figurines, I'd buy more if I had more money. Virtually all that I own are from One Piece, as I had a very intense period of fandom with the show throughout 2009 and 2010 now have several shelves of UFO prize figurines and candy toys from the series. My fandom has somewhat waned since then so I sometimes consider unloading my collection for what would be a considerable amount of money.

    I've seen the Totori figurine and she is indeed rather pretty. I'm fond of Kishida Mel's character designs, though I can't guarantee how well it will translate to 3D. I'm assuming you own lots of Vocaloid stuff, heh.

    Back to the serious, I suppose. My only interest in having more income has to do with the greater amount of personal freedom that comes with it, though I would also like to be able to sustain my hobbies within reason as well. More college is fairly out of the question right now, and there's not much you can dump history credits into anyway to fast-track yourself to something else. It was my passion as a teenager and young adult, but there's no dancing around the fact that I'm royally screwed.

    You know, about nostalgia being a weakness, it's the kind of thing that may impede progress but the cost of never yearning for the past outweighs the benefits. With nothing to cherish or remind us of who we used to be, we're cold. It's cutting off a part of your own humanity.

    Kylie, Kylie...I briefly spoke with her after my return, though either we don't post in the same forums or she has the same habit that I do of barely appearing on PC. How I wish more vets would come back and stay. I desperately miss the DCCs that could accumulate as many posts in a couple of days as they do in a month now.

    If you check the stats I have over 1800 lines since the reset.
