I'm black myself so I can't be racist to me Roc. I'm imagining that color now. Do you have long hair?

I did manage to dig up the example I used to show Roc the color my hair was, so I'm just going to post that, instead. The lighting is weird in the only decent picture I could find.

It was more dark and purpleish than this, though.
Spoiler:



I can't edit it to make it perfect, though, considering the art program I use refuses to work now. I'm not sure why that image is so large haha.

My hair was that color for at least a month, but I think it stuck around longer than that. Because it faded to such a weird color, I had to re-dye my hair. That nearly went badly, as well.

Edit:
Didn't see Kura's post because it took me too long to type that. x:

Okay, thanks. [: The reference I used was pretty much someone else's traced version of a clip from the anime, so I had to wing some of it (like the shoulder) because of how undetailed the art is in the anime.
That is a wicked purple and I can totally picture it a bit darker and looking awesome :333 Yayaya!

I look forward to seeing some more of your art sometime *_*! Do you have a PC Art blog?

Same. I love the way you word that, though! X) It took until a family member started yelling at me before I got out of the road when I was keeping an eye on that dying opossum. A car was coming and I was pretty sure they would notice it if I were standing in their way. X)

Okay, thanks. I did notice that, actually, but had forgotten about it.

Haha, pretty much anything can be considered racist if you twist it around the right way. X)

Edit:
Woah, two posts appeared.

@Nathan
Haha, you totally can be racist toward what you are. Not saying that you are- just saying that it's possible. ;D
Eh, depends on your definition of long. It was down passed my shoulders, in the picture I have.

@Kura
Haha thanks. {:
I have a thread thrown together over in Art & Design, but the only drawing there is the Vulpix. The rest are sprite recolors and some photos. I really should get more drawings there, but I don't have any that are worthy of being posted haha.

I don't know how to reply to that.
Just a fair warning that I already have ignore list'd people for saying stuff like that, because it comes across as pretty darn creepy when it's a stranger you met on the internet.

Heck, part of the reason why I have P/VMs locked is because some guy was sending me messages that I considered to be creepy (for example, flirting with me and trying to make me flirt back).

Won't be very active soon, but just for part of the day. Hopefully I'll get some drawings done during that time.

For a lot of guys, they have a hard time not being creepy when they're clearly just joking. But I do understand where you're coming from.

@Slender:
I'd probably have been standing in the road too.
That poor opposum. :T

Have you looked at those lyrics yet by the way?

@Nathan:
Naaaaaah, you can. X)

I do joke at people like that on the internet, but never seriously.
And I don't if they dislike it.
I guess there is a few people out there that can actually start a romantic relationship over the internet but I am not one of those people. :I

Creepiness doesn't usually bother me, but I've had some really creepy youtube comments said about me when I appeared in an interview for something like a week or so ago I think it was..
At first they bugged me, But I write them off. They're youtube comments. I don't think you could expect anything else haha.

The way I see e-crushes nowadays is "oh hey, you're cool, I like you." and it's only until you're able to meet and talk face to face do real feelings spark (or not spark.)
Didn't always used to be this way, but I see no harm in internet crushes unless they're trying to send you fanmail and pics of their privates.
Guess in that respect we are a bit different. Have you had a lot of dudes hit on you IRL so you're just like.. "ENOUGH OF THIS *flip table*"?

YAYAYA Slender, more drawings!!

Yeah, I felt bad for the poor little dude. Then I was paranoid for a while that one of the stray cats would end up being hit, as well. I had to carry around one of them that night, because he seen me in the street and wandered out to find me haha.

I seen them earlier on the thread you have a link to in your signature, and I can't remember anything worth changing. I'll take another look today, though, and get back to you on it. [:

@Nathan
No worries haha. If anyone but a friend would have said something like that, though, I would have ignore list'd without any warning. I didn't want to do that to a friend. {:

Okay, going to post a poll quickly before leaving for a few hours. See you guys later.

You have to be really careful with internet flirting. Once a guy was flirting with me and I tried to brush him off gently and nicely, and he got the wrong idea. Once I told him I wasn't interested (this took place over the course of a week or so, for reference) he got my IP address from the Ventrilo server we both visited and began threatening myself, my mother, and my sister using the information from that.

Being female and on the internet can be really scary.

Didn't see Kura's post.

Not exactly. I'm just very intolerant of flirting, but I have reason for being that way. If it's someone offline, I kind of just brush it off and ignore them because I don't really care haha.

Okay, /now/ I'm leaving. x:

Edit:
I know I've already said this, but I still can't get over how friendly you people are. My post to Nathan would have been reason for a ton of people to freak out at me, if I would have put that on a forum I used to go on. I still expect to have people pick through my posts to find reason to get angry with me, but that hasn't happened yet, and I've been here for nearly 5 months.

Yeah a dude I was selling some stuff over Etsy to went really creepy.. and it was like.. you had to be nice otherwise you'd get crummy sellers rep.. but at the same time you have to be like "uh.. I'm not interested." :C

What ended up happening? Just blocked the guy?

Not all internet-meetups and relationships end badly and there are quite a few people on PC even (including me) that are a testament to that!

Slender: Ah fair enough! Just not interested in all that at the moment which is fine. :3

Poor JNathan almost having a heart attack thinking he'd lose a friend over a silly comment haha *patpat*

Haha, Livewire, what are you saying 'lol ok' about?

@Slender:
You're an awesome person, you know that? X)

Eh, that's no help!
Alright.

Eh, we're friendly enough... sometimes...

See you!

@Toujours:
That's why you learn Muay Thai.

@Kura:
Nope, I don't think you're a nice person at all! ;x (Kidding.)

I wasn't worried at all. Yes, i was
I'm definitely not the kind of person to flirt in the bad way with a woman and i'm not angry easily but there are other men that think that when you act friendly you are interested in them.

Slender, cute drawing! I can give you a critique if you like! Post it in the drawover-paintover thread too, if you're daring! :3
That's a really pretty dress, Kura. You're pretty :3


As for online flirting, I just plain dont do it. You never know who's out there and knowing that kind of thing happens sometimes leads me to hide my gender on sites.

Bad picture she says, pfft. You look amazing <33
On the topic of creepiness/online flirting, I personally don't see the problem with expressing your feelings towards someone as long as you don't just bluntly throw it in their face. If you know someone well and like them, tell them that. Just try to stray away from words like "obsessed", "in love"... etc.

"I really like you and I think you're a great person ^_^" is a great way to go about it, just as long as you know the person and don't run the risk of them blocking you heh.

We just kind of ignored him and he went away because he wasn't the type of person to follow up on said threats. Plus he was in a guild with people we knew well and the higher-ups in the guild were getting on his back for it so he was at risk of losing a lot of friends and ~internet status~ over it.

Yeah, I still don't inherently distrust people online or anything like that. Actually, one of my closest friends online I met through 4chan, which is the sketchiest way possible to meet someone, haha.

I don't usually flirt over the internet. When I do, it's in a joking way to people I've known and talked to for a while.

I do it a lot irl tho.

What the hell do you mean a bad picture?? I say "Blasphemy!" You look wonderful, ma'am.

& to get back on topic, I think that online flirting is okay... so long as it doesn't get over-the-top. Of course, you can't tell if someone is a sexual predator or not, which is the only bad thing about the internet that I could find...

I think if you do like someone online, you should just tell them that, yeah they might end up rejecting you, but it's just going to be bad if you don't.

I did that, and yeah, she rejected me. But we were close, and we remained close, and I'm happy for that.

It's weird, though, I'll admit. Liking someone over the web, I mean.

It's a little weird, I mean you know nothing about the person. Just how he/she looks like and her hobbies or maybe another few things. Not enough for me.
