      Man, this poor avatar is much in need of rest. I actively tried to depart from being formulaic with my end of year activities, but I did neglect a few things...

        Updating now. Getting rid of my compulsion to document everything should help a lot - I'll only record avatar changes now, which is quite the step up in convenience for me. ^_^

        Also, has anyone else tried using the "set picture as avatar" option in Media? I never realized what an excellent feature that can be! :D

      More than 3 years since X & Y, and my first time with a Psychic/ Fairy member of the Ralts family is a GBC game. How about that! :o

        He’s also the first male I’ve caught, incidentally, both my original champion Ash (now renamed Ardor) and the Gardevoir I randomly have in Throwback Red (Nemesis) are female. Thinking this feisty fellow may possibly end up a Gallade if Dawn Stones are lurking about, but Basil fits him either way. ^.^

        I have no idea what Nintendo's legal team is truly thinking, but it does seem in today's age that releasing things once they're finished with no build up may be the best way to go about it. If it's of good quality and derivative of a popular series, news will spread.

        I've been tempted to get into Pokémon hacking myself, but I already have enough on my plate without that kind of dabbling @.@

        Y'know, I knew the game would leak eventually, but I certainly wasn't expecting it to be the day after it was taken down. It actually got released sooner than the original release date!

        True enough, and while it’s not the /final/ final it’s final enough to be superior to any other GBC hack! I simply hope that no suspicion or legal trouble falls on the mod creator, since he legitimately doesn’t seem like the sort of person who could stomach or want to orchestrate a leak.

      I’ve spent years waiting for Pokémon Prism. Nintendo waited until 4 days before its release to issue a C&D, and this has never happened to a romhack before. good great excellent

        Somehow I know it’s going to leak anyway, so I at least get to play it at some point in the same way that I have AM2R on my computer right now, but this sort of thing gets my blood boiling more than most. >.>

        If you're one of the 1.98% of people who like reading what I write and also avoid the gallery, I'd recommend at least reading the one of a Kirlia holding hands to a Gallade and the humanish one after that since the descriptions of those are Serious Limit-Busting Semi-Relevant Moderately Heavy Nonsense! Everyone likes that, right...? ^_^;

        It is, yes.

        I just noticed that timestamps don’t seem to be included on these, at least on the mobile version, so it’s worth noting that these were written at 5 in the morning following the candidacy announcement. I’m not happy about the President-elect, but I don’t believe that the apocalypse is upon us or that we can’t get through this - and maybe even come out better in ways - as a country. And hey, even if we are deported? Mexico is a beautiful place with a future, too.

      The whole world, or at least our area, is going crazy over the Cubs winning the world series for the first time in a century. I'm not really a sports fan, but it's still quite invigorating to feel so much common interest in it - someone in every classroom was discussing it, half the students were late due to staying up for the final game, and there's even a dedicated parade. It's nice. c:

      For those who for some reason want to know but have ceased checking (and check here???), I'm doing Gallery uploads again after a two month """""break"""""! Who am I kidding, I just want to restore some shaky trust because I've been constantly screwing up for the past year or two. I imagine it's a bit exhausting, being my friend, given how exhausting it is to keep renewing. Don't have another path.

        I think you're being too hard on yourself. Just because you leave for a bit and come back, doesn't mean that you have to "renew" with anyone. I mean, you are basically the face of the CSTSF after all (according to google); I doubt anyone has forgotten you.

      I played the first level of Lovely Planet blind on camera! Luckily for you, you're never seeing it because my laptop can't handle even 30 FPS smoothly and for some reason a little bit of the right side of the window was cut off even though the capture was supposed to be my entire screen. At least it wasn't commented on, so you're really not missing much. :o

        All of the text you get from shooting baddies is in Japanese, and not very many of the mechanics are outright told to you, so I don't really understand how some of it works and don't care to waste the blindness by going off to check the inevitable wiki, but it's still very fun in that frustrating Groove Coaster way where you restart levels over and over again until you go through them mostly perfectly. :3

        That's what I thought too! So on Tuesday and throughout the week I used a bit more than my usual plenty and dried my hair in a different way, and it's been working out a lot more somehow. Maybe it's the extra amount, maybe it's the drying method, I'm doing both because okay hair is a rare and precious blessing. :3

        That aside, it always makes me happy when people I haven't seen in a while are doing well. ^.^

    This has everything to do with me. In fact, this gif is my essence. But if you don't know why just enjoy it. ^_^


    I adore reading and playing videogames. I also like Gardevoir, drawing (though I'm not great, I improve every now and then!), giving random people compliments, becoming proficient at stabbing people with pens (that's rude, past me), character customization and fantasies, dodging any and all inquiries towards my age/gender (and then spilling everything in an overly dramatic fashion and being super open anyway), RPGs, the Polar Star, trying to improve myself...the list goes on. FUN FACTS: I'm at least a quarter-brony (as confirmed by a Grand Brony acquaintance in days gone by), my username "Polaris" doesn't come from that old Jenka's Nightmare weapon, and as the years have passed I've accessed the forums through a crappy Ascend II, an HTC Desire, an iPhone 5C and finally a laptop. :3

    Hey. I'm first for once because I have a message. The nonsense we spew is no longer being recorded, so we're trying to deal with the reality that all we say will be lost to the void, most of it having been meaningless. If anyone out there even reads these, or gives a damn...hey, let us know. That'd be nice. In any case, the upside is that Sigs and I will be updated more often.

    Take care. Don't stop renewing, even if it seems pointless.

    ★Hiya! Don't forget the blessing of another year for you to make improvements with. It's Twenty-Serpentine now - keep 'em guessin'! Zag when once you zigged! :3★
