Polaris

Warmth in the Arctic, Male, 18, from A break from the battle

By the way, those last few Special Album avatars have descriptions now. Still working on sources! Sep 20, 2017

      I was thinking just this morning about how nice it would be to see the first snow. I’d lain in bed for a good length of time recording my dream, and only spotted the fleck of white shooting past my window in the middle of listening to Tyler the Creator's “See You Again”. Leapt out of bed and everything. c:

        Hopefully you two move or travel someday. Snow can be a hassle, especially for those who drive every day, but I find it beautiful. There’s a definite magic in the first snow, and winter's more pleasant with a pretty pallete.

        There actually was a bit of snow yesterday, but it melted very quickly.

      Today I watched Fight Club for the first time and earned a full bottle of root beer for sticking around to help clean up. Yesterday I messed up my hands, legs and head doing volunteer farm work! (It’s better now.) And on Friday, I signed up for Smash and fencing with intentions to get into ballroom dancing or perhaps something else. Now I just need to do homework and not throw it all away. :o

        I had to rewatch a bit of the anime Log Horizon for the noble Nyanta (he's like a cat aristocrat). (I recommend that show!)
        ... which lead me to looking for a Nyanta avatar
        ... which lead me to a picture of Nyanta carrying Serara
        ... which lead me to look at my avatar of Curly and Quote
        ... !

        There are holiday Cave Story+ sprites. How about community Cave Story+ cat month "holiday" sprites? lol
        Just an idea buried in the profile section...

        @X-Calibar No worries, X, you’re one of the premier examples of excellent people I stop by for! I’m in the same boat - I could copypaste your comment and have it be true of you. It’s a pleasure to have you on Steam and more so whenever I get to read literally anything you write~

        ★Reading is still wonderful and I still don’t partake in enough of it, though a generous gift of a Nook and my own resolve may turn that around. The Secret Garden was wonderfully spirit-lifting, Rosamond: Traces of Ink...less so, but interesting.
        ★One’s 18th birthday is apparently a big deal. I’ve never enjoyed such a lavish and warm celebration before, and likely never will again. All told, I’m alright with that. :> I got to enjoy one of the best burgers in Chicago from Kuma's Corner, the presence of pleasant family members, and a number of useful things I won’t bore you with!
        ★It’s April and still cold. I’m very much in a Spring mood, especially after The Secret Garden and a pleasantly successful, cute haircut.
        ★No, seriously, why doesn’t One Way Heroics tell you that critical hits bypass barriers? :o

        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

        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...? ^_^;

    This has nothing to do with me. Just enjoy it! ^_^


    I adore reading and playing videogames, but I sadly find it more difficult to get addicted to the former. I also like Gardevoir, drawing (though I'm not great, I improve every now and then!), giving random people compliments, 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: My username "Polaris" doesn't come from that old Jenka's Nightmare weapon, it’s from the Polar Star's signature mark. I’m well-meaning but slow and verbose, this page was apparently the first result for a search of CSTSF which is neat, 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
