    Lawsuits? Perhaps your ideals are just different from my own.

    You blatantly don't know the first thing about ballistics. You don't listen. I am so irate right now. You have wasted so much of my time with this. You want to stop /now/? Too late. I'm so far gone, and y'know what? I don't want to hear from you. Is that something you understand? Do I need to make it more clear for you? Should I go out of my way to PROVE that I don't in fact want receive further communication from you?

    The notion that all things need to be directly explained and that just because we're allowed to interpret something means we can drop logic and interpret it however we want is /ridiculous/. Your entire argument is based on ignorance. (We can't prove it's this way, so it should be however we want.) Mine, in contrast, is based on an objective attempt to understand what the rightful owners of the series want it to be! (It seems pretty clear that this is what they are aiming for based on what is observable in their works, even if it's remotely possible that it could be different.)

    The proper way to handle it when someone provides solid evidence that your idea contradicts canon is to take that, accept it, and use it to improve your writing. This is roleplay. Anyone can do whatever they want regardless of series. The ability to refrain from doing whatever you want is the basics of what separates a good writer from a not so good writer.
    At the risk of sounding dismissive, it's about time you either got a new argument altogether or gave up. Continued stubbornness is only going to make me increasingly hostile due to sheer frustration.

    ...See, you do this thing where you disrespect the series and/or it's creators and it has been eating at my temper like acid. The series deserves more credit than you're giving it.

    Anyway, I don't see the appeal of immersing myself in a sea of "ignorance, narcissism, and stubbornness" just to voice my opinion. There was a time when I had enough strength to stand up for myself and what I thought was right just to say I tried, but that time is gone.

    All I have in response to the notion that I should is stories of emotional trauma and an intense feeling of pointlessness.

    I'm much happier doing what I'm doing now...

    The "main forum"? I'm not sure I know what you mean...

    I used to frequent Other Chat... before I came to the RPC.

    Quite frankly, I felt like people tended to either just ignore me or use me as something to beat up on. People never really seemed to care for what I had to say, regardless of how reasonable I was, and I was attacked on a personal level quite a few times. I also felt unable to trust the local mod to protect my right to discuss without being attacked because they had a different opinion than I. Don't even get me started on the hypocrisy.

    Every post there made me feel as if I were throwing myself into a pit of lions for the right to speak my mind. Ceasing to read/post there lowered my stress levels by a large margin and literally managed to improve my quality of life, and not just because I stopped having bursts of rage every time a new terribad thread on Religion or Abortion reared it's ugly head. I eventually gave up. My health was not worth it. The discussions tended to resemble fights amongst wild animals moreso than the actual pursuit of truth or the betterment of oneself. I don't recall anyone except myself ever actually taking the time to admit their views had been changed by something someone had said.

    The stress and emotional turmoil was enough to bring out my own animosity at times too. And... that's why I do not go to Other Chat anymore. Given this was all... years ago? for all I know things are much different now, but I have just... never felt willing to give it another chance. If people really want to hear my opinions and my standpoints, they can ask me themselves.

    Why would they though? I've got a diagnosed disability that impacts my ability to understand the world around me! What was /I/ thinking? I'm honestly not sure why it bothers you that I often keep my thoughts to myself.

    ---

    Also, I wouldn't say that topic was unrelated to roleplay. Understanding your canonity is key to good writing. Sure, you can plow through the canonity and do what you want, and maybe even be a decent writer in the end. But a /great/ writer works around the canonity to get the same results. Respecting your canonity is not a limitation to your imagination, but rather it encourages you to find more creative, less crude ways to go about things.

    For instance, if I hadn't respected the game's canonity, Pokemon Fallout probably would've just been a standard "Yo, this is an alternate universe where pokemon and humans are born fused", and I dare say there is absolutely no way that concept could be written well enough to compare with the story I wound up writing because I took the time to work around the canonity instead of through it.

    It's supposed to be pronounced as Su-den with (as an example) scandinavian accent.

    I've been thinking about that yes. I'm just... not sure who. Perhaps I should ask in the OOC.

About Me

  • About machomuu
    Interests
    You know, I had a list here of things that I like, but it just felt like I was filling space. Usually I don't even fill this area in, but what the heck. I like games, gaming is probably my favorite hobby...probably to an unhealthy level, but hey, it's good for the mind.

    Anime and manga are a big thing for me, as well, partially because I don't watch television anymore. Nowadays, if I watch something, it's usually because I want to dedicate myself to it, so it's generally a matter of choosing what I want to watch, and anime really makes that easy. Problem is, if it's in Japanese, I have to give it 100% of my attention, and that's part of the reason that I'm trying to learn Japanese.

    More than that, though, I've learned about Japan to the extent that I'm actually interested in it. This is mostly due to research projects and the like, as well as being the cause of some curious points I'd see in anime or general miscellany that needed clarification. The idea that there exists a place that exists both as a mish-mash of many different cultures while at the same time heavily influencing the mix with its own unique flare is pretty interesting, and seeing how that same place is both similar to and contrarily dissimilar to my homeland is just fascinating. It doesn't really have any bearing on my fight to learn Japanese, though; that's mostly for the sake of my hobbies.

    Apart from that, I'm basically an average nerd. I have a desire to become a video game developer and am really interested in social sciences (Sociology, Philosophy, etc.) and the forces that influence them, such as Psychology. As strange as it may sound, learning how people work is just plain fascinating, and it may because I like analyzing the complex facets of the mundane so much that I take interest in it.

    Then again, most of this is basically just things spilling out of my brain. If it sounds like I'm trying to sound smart, profound, things of that nature, or the opposite, be assured that I'm not trying at all. And, because of that, take everything you read here with a grain of salt, because it's all just spilling out of my brain with no filter or thought to what it says, and I don't really read this section enough to bother to edit most of its body. But it shouldn't really matter, if you get to know me or if you already do, you'll know how much of this is legit and vice versa.

    ...And I love Touhou Project. Inazuma Eleven and Osu!, too. All for different reasons, but I'd say how invested I am in the aforementioned is enough to be listed here.
