  1. Seriously whoever did that did it pretty thouroughly. It's present in both the blue skin I still use and the black skin you see if you look as a guest. I didn't really catch on that it was an April fools day thing though until someone pointed it out to me, it almost seemed natural for Otakuboards to have dancing anime girls in the banner. Edit: HEY WHAT THE! The signatures and avatars got switched :O LMAO
  2. [quote="Mr Kashhalk (High School Physics Teacher, former Navy ship's engineer)] NAVY = Never Again Volunteer Yourself[/quote] I find the military to be one heck of a mixed bag. A fair number of people I know did go and did well in it, but there's an equal number who couldn't stand it or even found it to be almost a scam. Most likely I wouldn't go unless I had no choice, though my mind is screwed up enough I probably could get out on mental instability if they did draft me. I don't kill people, end of story. As for the mind games, I do enjoy a good mind game. Perhaps it would be one mind game I could actually play along with, if I ever did decide to give it a shot.
  3. [quote name='Momishin']Yay! :D I forgot to write into my my intro that Sue is having a secret relationship with Odin that no one knows about. (OdinM knows this and has agreed)[/QUOTE] I don't think it will have made too much difference. Odin would have rejected any advances anyway. Also, it's up. [url=http://www.otakuboards.com/showthread.php?t=58877]Inner Universe: It Begins[/url]
  4. (OOC: [url=http://www.otakuboards.com/showthread.php?t=58849]Signups here[/url][url=http://www.otakuboards.com/showthread.php?t=58912]Backstage Thread Here[/url]) [I]There are many things in this world that we may never understand completely. Some things, like life and death, may never be truly understood for as long as the stars show in the sky. Others, the meanings that seemed so concrete and reliable is suddenly swept away by new ideas. And strange things can and will happen, without a clear reason, at any time. [/I] On the coast of a volcanic island in the mid pacific known as Mt Angelica, signs of human civilization could be seen. A small town had sprouted on the island, the subject of tourism and trade, and a resting place for weary travelers crossing the sea. Nestled in the bay between two peninsulas that were the last remains of a previous volcanic island, could be found a comfortable and prosperous trade and tourism community, served by air and sea. Home to everything one would expect to find in a tourist resort in the mid pacific, and featuring a lot of natural volcanic terrain that was not yet spoiled by the commercial development that ruins a lot of resorts, nearly a million people a year came to visit, on top of the few thousand people who lived there permanently. By air, or from a distance, it seemed perfectly ordinary. The school was in the same condition as one would expect of a public school, although slightly less cash-starved due to the number of wealthy people attending, gas stations and fast food places dotted the streets, and ships and airplanes came and went from the harbor. One peninsula was decorated with a lighthouse and a few farms; the other contained a moderate-sized power and communication station to provide electricity to the island in addition to Internet and telephone service, fed in via a government owned satellite system. The unexpected is what happens though, and although this island met the eye the same way any island like it would be, it was on this island that something had happened, that only a youthful mind would truly be able to understand. [I]And thus, things were just beginning. [/I] [b]~Friday Afternoon, as school lets out~ ~Odin Yggdrasil, C101 computer lab~ [/b] [I]Almost done.[/I] A slender blonde kid thought, typing frantically on his laptop in the back corner of the room, trying to finish what he was writing before the bus home left. “Odin at it again with the laptop? That is your computer after all, can’t you just finish it on the bus?” The teacher commented, straightening up the classroom a bit. Odin jumped, though it didn’t seem like the teacher realized that he was actually writing something and not just keying in computer program language or CAD coordinates he still was quick to save the page and shut his computer off, putting it in his backpack and hurrying to catch the bus. [I]Seriously why do I always run out of time?[/I] He thought, getting on the bus that took him home right as the first few in line began pulling out. “Hey did you hear? Another person vanished for a few hours, and when they showed up again later that night they started telling tales about their being a spacecraft pilot from the year 3015 and the government took them away for questioning.” Another student whispered, rumors about these disappearances were sweeping the area again and the gossip chains were eating it up. Odin sighed, he never was openly into gossip, however he often would take note of some things to use as leverage later on. This was just rumors and conspiracy theories though as far as he was concerned, and was rather boring. Taking a seat right around the middle of the bus where there was an empty spot, he looked out the window at the ocean and the town, daydreaming in the hour or so before he was home.
  5. All bios accepted. Likely I will have the opening up sometime tonight, if not I will do it tomorrow.
  6. Cookies all the way for me. Crackers don't taste anywhere near as good, and I don't normally like them unless I have cheese or something to put on them.
  7. [quote name='Panache']When I saw the title of this thread I immediately thought of porn...which is where I think this kind of attire belongs...not in y'know college classes. But hey if you wanna look kinky around school knock yourself out.[/QUOTE] LMAO. Gothic Lolita isn't porn at all though. It's just a reasonably classic and often misunderstood style of clothing. Plus stuff like the image I posted earlier isn't even close to porn, it's just showy.
  8. Looks good so far, I don't see any problems. Starwind, you aren't going to control people's characters without permission this time correct? At the very least leave an OOC note in a previous post if you want to for a scene, but preferrably arrange such events by PM or IM. Likely this will start sometime this weekend, I do know there is one more person coming that PM'd me to ask me to save space, and any others that get their bios up before this starts are welcome to do so.
  9. I've been trying to figure something out actually. There's an image I was given a while ago that is supposed to be Gothic Lolita, however no matter where I look I haven't been able to find any references to this subtype or where to find materials for it- someone I know wants to try wearing a similar outfit just for kicks. Basically, the type of outfit you see Misa wearing most of the time, that is the kind of Goth Lolita I like. [url=http://img220.imageshack.us/img220/7609/1127692142sdarkangelnc6.jpg]Here's an example, the image I was given a while ago. Anyone know what branch of goth/goth Lolita this would fall into> [/url] But yes, I do like the darker-styles of goth and goth Lolita on girls, because if done properly it is quite appealing to me.
  10. [quote name='Allamorph'][FONT=Arial]No, those are actually his tastes. And [I]please[/I] let's not get him off on another "I'm proud of how effed up I am!" spiels. This poor thread doesn't need that. :p[/FONT][/QUOTE] That's genuinely creepy. Though in a way it is good that there are a balance of different tastes, like I used to tell the girl I am with now before we got together "There's always someone who would love you, no matter how you are." I do know I like some of the cute stuff, but I also like girls that have curves as well in addition to having a good mind and some related interests to my own. As for height and weight, I don't worry about height much, but I am actually rather proud to love a girl who weighs more than I do. It doesn't stop me from picking her up from time to time, mind you I don't often because it is a bit awkward, but it still is possible. She's got real shape to her body too. And her interests and personality are quite compatible with mine, which is a good thing. We've been together for soon to be a year already.
  11. [url=http://www.otakuboards.com/showthread.php?t=58877]RP in progress, it is located here.[/url] [url=http://www.otakuboards.com/showthread.php?t=58912]Backstage Thread[/url] [b]~Inner Universe~[/b] Foreword: This is a significant departure from all the RPs I have been in, in that each player will get to create their own universe, connected by the real world as a common universe or “Outer Universe” I will define additional rules for that, while most of the RP will take place in the main universe I define. Storyline: (Earth, Year 2008. Mid Pacific Ocean) The Village of Mt. Angelica appears to a casual tourist as an ordinary resort island town, somewhere in the pacific. All the things one would expect of a reasonable sized town can be found on short notice, while the more adventurous can attempt to climb Mt. Angelica, the dormant volcano that composes the island. Students go to school, Lovers sit at the beach or in the park, merchants sell their wares, and working folk hurry about trying to make a living. It is a popular tourism spot, attracting wealthy and celebrities from around the world in addition to ordinary people However, there has been a disturbing series of events recently. People have begun to disappear for hours at a time, then suddenly reappear and tell tales of adventures that could only have happened inside a fantasy universe. To date nobody knows why, but it seems that there is something about Mt. Angelica, something that only those with an imagination could have ever thought possible. It could only be a power that nobody could explain without seeing it themselves. Something that many would say was just a dream. Rules: 1. NO GODMODDING. I don’t know how many times I’ve called that. Your characters will get hurt in a fight; it is inevitable. But too powerful too soon is another common godmod that I have called in the past. 2. NO controlling another character without permission. This includes combat; you cannot hurt another character without permission to cause damage. 3. NO drastically changing the plot or the main universe. While I will be allowing a lot in this RP because of all the inner universes, the main universe and it’s works still has to obey real world terms. 4. These characters are designed to be high school students, tourist or not. I will permit a limited number of adults such as teachers or people from town, but you must notify me in advance if you want such a position or it will be rejected. 5. Limit of 4 characters, exceptions will be made if you contact me and prove that you can manage more than that. Bios: Note that there are actually two bios for each character, one is their real-world the other is their inner universe. Also please note that while everyone in the real world is human, inside the inner universes anything goes as far as races and abilities. [b]Name:[/b] [b]Gender: [/b] [b]Age:[/b](be reasonable. We are human here, and most of us are in high school) [b]Real World Appearance: [/b](Haruhi Anime style school uniforms when in class, use this space for what they wear when not in class and also for details like hair style/color and body type) [b]Year and Class: [/b](Should be standard, such as year 8 class 3) [b]Personality: [/b](Should be consistent with the nature of the inner universe such as a dark and cruel person having a similar inner universe) [b]GPA: [/b](What are your grades like) [b]Character History:[/b] (If you want to give it, your character’s past.) [b]Significant Item:[/b] (This is an item of sentimental or functional significance to your character, it will be relevant later in the series as a means to enter the Inner Universe. This item may change during the course of the series, however not often.) [b]Inner Universe[/b]: (Describe their inner universe. How the world of that is like. It should be a manifestation of their personality, and how they would like to see the world. Also give the history of your inner universe, but remember that while at the start of this RP nobody will have gone to an inner universe yet the inner universes can know about the outer universe (outer universe aka real world) The means to enter an inner universe will be described in the RP itself, my current game plan involves the first few entries being done through actual dreams while later a more convenient method will be used as the inner universes become more important.) [b]Inner Universe Appearance [/b]: (be creative here, this is how your character sees themselves and how they appear when in an inner universe) [b]Inner Universe Races [/b]: (Races used in an inner universe. Note that while a person can be a different race in their home universe, all other universes they are human by default unless you describe how you see yourself to the person who’s inner universe you are in, the easiest way being to simply go there so they can see you in your inner universe) [b]Inner Universe Age[/b]: how old are you in your inner universe. My characters: [b]Name:[/b] Odin M Yggdrasil [b]Gender:[/b] M [b]Age:[/b] 16 [b]Real World Appearance:[/b] 6’0” 150 lbs, short blonde hair that hangs towards left eye but does not cover it. Blue eyes, fine build with slightly noticeable muscles. Usually wears a t-shirt and jeans when not in school, and a leather apron when in the workshop. [b]Year and Class:[/b] Year 10 class 2 [b]Personality: [/b]Usually silent and withdrawn as if in his own world, when something that interests him is brought up he suddenly becomes very talkative and will discuss it until it is completely explained. Will not do work unless you make him want to do it, which always causes problems with the teachers. Has expressed interests in medieval times and futuristic materials, in addition to real world metalworking and electronics. [b]GPA:[/b] Cs and Ds, due to a zero-homework policy that gets him in trouble a lot. He insists on attempting to pass a course exclusively by exams without any homework. [b]Character History:[/b] He moved to the island when he was 10, and lives on a farm midway up the mountain, 4 miles out of town. Because of this, and combined with his very unusual personality, he was picked on a lot, and eventually withdrew from society, hiding on the hill except for class and getting materials for his projects from the store. Last year he started talking for a brief while, but following another round of picking by his classmates once again withdrew from social life. While he does get picked on a lot, the few who have dared to physically bully him have regretted it- those nerdy arms and legs of his have remarkable strength inside. [b]Significant Item:[/b] A steel ring forged by his own hands, and engraved with his name and the name of someone he once loved. [b]Inner Universe:[/b] The world of Ironaya, where the forces of light (elves, humans) and the forces of darkness (demons, vampires) are fighting for control of the planet. The elves and humans just want to survive, and in doing so protect the outer universe (although they do not know of it’s existence) while the demons and vampires want to take over the planet and eventually find their way into the outer universe, so that they might take over all of the inner universes and the outer universe too. Some features of Ironaya are the crystals known as wing stones, if one is mounted in a crest on the neck that only an elf or vampire can properly attach to a body, the body’s abilities become enhanced, and high level users of these can call forth angel or bat wings (Depends on if the stone was set by an elf or a vampire. Elves get angel wings; vampires get bat wings.) There are also legends of a great forge where the universe was made, and constant power struggles and searches to find it. Even most blacksmiths will dismiss the idea as folly, but the promise of power to the one who tames it still has sent many to their deaths. [b]Inner Universe Appearance:[/b] Similar to his real world appearance, except his hair is knee length, he wears dull gray pants and a simple cloth shirt with the same leather apron that he wears in his real world workshop. He is also a known Half-Elf, and has a wing stone attached. [b]Inner Universe Races:[/b] Humans, Elves, Vampires, Demons, and hybrids of these four. [b]Inner Universe Age:[/b] 21
  12. That's pretty clever I think, though I don't see the post that Des made when this screenshot was taken. And here I was just asking in another thread what kinds of pranks to expect.
  13. I picked up a death note replica at an Anime Convention back in November, but other than that I really don't have any anime merchandise or really fuss about getting it. Then again maybe if I cosplay more I will pick up more items as props.
  14. That still sounds like a pretty good prank in any case. I wonder if they will do anything like it in the near future.
  15. I don't know if anyone here is religious or not, however tonight is easter vigil and tomorrow is easter Sunday for most Christian and catholic religions. I am fairly sure it is passover for the Jewish faith as well. What are your plans for tonight and tomorrow? I am going down to the church in a few minutes to set up the easter vigil bonfire. Basically, at sundown I ignite this fire, and the mass starts around it. After some songs are sung and the fire is blessed, the easter candle and some flame pots are ignited and carried inside. It becomes the light of Christ by the time they are done, and is stored on a large candle in the back room to ignite baptism candles so that new baptisms receive the light of Christ- which is derived from the fire I ignite this eveni[B]n[/B]g and have for the past three years. Normally I sit out by the fire for a while longer as it cannot be left unattended, but the then offer prayers and carry the fire pots around the darkened church for a fair bit as per tradition. Usually right around the time my fire is burning out ( I know exactly how much wood to give it so it only burns long enough for the ritual) the lights are turned on and the mass proceeds normally, letting out at midnight. As for tomorrow, I have no idea what we'll do- I don't think we've located our easter baskets from last year they were hidden so well. Probably just enjoy the day off I think.
  16. I've been pulled over once, following too closely (Even though I was riding as-specified by NYSDMV 3 second following distance in good conditions) They reduced it to no seat belt, which was no points no insurance increase, and nothing more than 2 hours in town court waiting for my turn and a $150 fine. Hopefully they wont bother my car right now though. She's all smashed up from a mishap on ice back in february, and though it is safely together and perfectly driveable it's not pretty .
  17. [quote name='MaskedRider'][I]On a cold winter morning In the time before the light In flames of death's eternal reign We ride towards the fight When the darkness has fallen down And the times are tough alright The sound of evil laughter falls Around the world tonight Fighting hard, fighting on for the steel Through the wastelands evermore The scattered souls will feel the hell Bodies wasted on the shores On the blackest waves in hell's domain We watch them as they go Through fire and pain and once again we know! So now we fly ever free We're free before the thunderstorm On towards the wilderness Our quest carries on Far beyond the sundown Far beyond the moonlight Deep inside our hearts and all our souls! So far away we wait for the day For the light source so wasted and gone We feel the pain of a lifetime lost in a thousand days Through the fire and the flames we carry on! As the red day is dawning And the lightning cracks the sky They'll raise their hands to the heavens above With resentment in their eyes Running back through the midmorning light There's a burning in my heart We're banished from the time in a fallen land To a life beyond the stars In your darkest dreams see to believe Our destiny is time And endlessly we'll all be free tonight! And on the wings of a dream So far beyond reality All alone in desperation Now the time has gone Lost inside you'll never find Lost within my own mind Day after day this misery must go on! So far away we wait for the day For the lives all so wasted and gone We feel the pain of a lifetime lost in a thousand days Through the fire and the flames we carry on! Now here we stand with their blood on our hands We fought so hard, now can we understand I'll break the seal of this curse if I possibly can For freedom of every man! So far away we wait for the day For the lives all so wasted and gone We feel the pain of a lifetime lost in a thousand days Through the fire and the flames we carry on![/i] My tombstone will be 8 feet tall and made of black marble. I'm going out like a king.[/QUOTE] DragonForce: Through the fire and the flames we carry on. Interesting choice at least. Here's my latest one: "Death before dishonor. And well, I lied."
  18. [URL="http://i31.photobucket.com/albums/c376/sbssean1987/Lostmytopic.jpg"][U]Picture[/U][/URL] I made this a while ago as a cheap macro, though it didn't really catch on sadly.

  19. Companionship, caring, and affection. Those three are what I really look for in a relationship, intimate relations and physical attraction come later and will often develop once the first three are found. The other thing too is I don't really care for drinking, but I wont put up with smoking as the smell irritates me very quickly. As for their habits, it helps to have at least some things in common or at least have related interests, though I find that some people do better with a bit of a gap in interests so that you aren't outdoing each other all the time and you both have things you are good at that the other isn't. What interests me though is how I wasn't looking for a relationship at all and I kind of stumbled upon it one day, and now am glad I did.
  20. Right now: [b]The Phantom of the Opera 2004 Movie OST[/b] [i]Past the point of no return[/i] I've just gone past the point of no return on another forum, having managed to get myself banned in a single moment of pure insanity. So it fits my mood right now.
  21. I'm typing this while studying weather maps in case I run into problems driving to my date with Momishin this weekend. I think it is obvious what my opinions of dating are, the two of us has been meaning roughly every month for nine months now. It's still fun though, because as our bond deepens we try new things and grow ever closer together. It hasn't always been easy though. One botched date in particular stands out, we had gone to the beach at New Jersey, and I lost my glasses in the ocean. Well, by the time all was said and done I ended up driving 8 hours home without them. Fortunately I can see well enough to stay on the road and not hit anything, but reading the roadsigns was a pain in the ***. I never really was into girls or dating back in high school, and even in college I couldn't be bothered. Then Momishin came along, and my whole life has changed.
  22. And here I thought this would be discussing types of wedding rings. I usually don't notice, I already have a girl and only talk to others as classmates. Though there are some other things I notice from time to time, such as what they are wearing or if they look like they need someone to talk to or not.
  23. If I got started on this topic, it would not be pretty. The sheer volumes of stupidity that take place these days are absolutely insane....
  24. I haven't show you guys what I look like yet. [url=http://i31.photobucket.com/albums/c376/sbssean1987/the%20ogre/Odinsdeathnote.jpg]Be afraid, be very afraid...[/url] That one is just a novelty version from an anime convention, I keep it blank because it seems like such a nice notebook I hate to ruin it.
  25. I am hoping for a death that involves explosive force, so I don't have a body requiring disposal. Though if I am not blown up, hopefully I will be burned, and my ashes poured into the hollow wall of my workshop, near the forge so I can toast mah buns as a ghost. @Allamorph: Your ashes would become mixed with those of the funeral pyre, there would still be some form of remains. Even the hottest fire leaves an ash.
