Ummm, yeah, really bad at this introduction stuff, so I'll just say this.

I'm Spasms. As is obvious, I'm new here.

My reason for joining this site is to learn to role play better.

I don't have a clue how long ago, but I remember someone telling me that this was an awesome place to learn or to improve your skills. Sooo, here I am.

I'm not exactly new to the rp scene as I've been playing since 2004, on GaiaOnline, but I'm always ready to learn more.
I am everything and nothing all at once, I am the imperfect perfection. I am like nothing you have ever seen, nor will ever see again, and the most common sight in existence.

I am me.

Well, welcome, and if you'd like to improve, I'd suggest heading over to the Roleplay Academy, though that's really for beginners. Otherwise, I'd just say practise makes perfect, so jump right in!
"Some things are important. Others are not. Yet all would claim a mortal's attention. It falls to each of us to remain ever mindful, and thus purchase wisdom in the threading of possibilities. It is our common failing that we are guided by our indifference to eventualities. The moment pleases, the future can await consideration." - Steven Erikson's Midnight Tides

Thanks! I was thinking of doing that, but I figured I'd wait a little bit and check stuff out first.

Welcome! I am happy to see that you are getting involved so quickly. Very awesome job! Feel free to make topic's and just enjoy yourself. If you would like to hop into an RP check out Dreaming of Death or LockDown at Cordova ( I am in both so I advertise for them. =) ) If you join Dreaming of Death I would be more than happy to give any pointers or there is the RPA which is always a good place to start as well. Just have fun and keep up the posting. Welcome again! See you around the forums and in the chat.

Lates.

*Giggle* Thanks. Best way to find out about the people that hang out somewhere, start talking about books, movies, and music, so I figured I'd try it out. ^_^"


And Thanks again, I'll look into both of those.

Hello...

If I might ask, where exactly did you get your signature from? You don't seem to be quoting anyone for the first part...
'By any means necessary. Heh, that's when your ideals outweigh your conscience. The question is: are you willing to give up yourself--your idea of who you are, of what is right--to help other people?"

I'm not really. It's something one of my bestfriend/sisterishthings told me a long time ago, and it sorts just fits me.

The second thing is just something a friend of mine and I made up while goofing off one day.

Ah, okay then...Excuse me if this sounds odd, but it sounds a bit similar to something an insane character was fond of saying in a book I read. ^^; Heheh...Everything relates to books or manga with me...No insult was intended, of course.

None taken hun. For all we know I very well might be insane, or she could be. Or hell, everyone could be.


Regardless, she might have gotten it from there a book, I have no idea. What book is it?

No, no, it's different enough that I know it's not from the book. It's just that the...feel, the idea is the same. The character is, um, quite the narcissist. The line I'm talking about his her...sort of self-affirmation chant. And she is quite definitely insane; she gets taken away at the end. It's by Dean Koontz, called...Um...Let me check. I can't find my copy, but I'm pretty sure it was called 'One Door Away From Heaven.'

*sigh* This really does sound rude, no matter how I phrase it. I do not automatically think you are narcissistic; I do not mean to insult you.

Sorry, I was raised Irish-Catholic. No matter how pagan I might be now, I still have the guilt complex at times. (It acts up more on forums, where if I have a bad day--which is almost never--and post something rude, it will last. I've mostly gotten over apologizing constantly in real life. I am somewhat proud to say that I can generally pass for sane, if not normal.)

Ahh I understand. Raised Southern Baptist, now pagan. One thing the church is good for is guilt trips. But honestly deary, it's a bit hard to offend me.

I'll keep that in mind.

Speaking of which...Any chance of you making your font a bit bigger? It's rather...gravelly looking.

So...What types of RPs do you like?

I do fantasy stuff and stuff meant for humor. Currently staging a large scale water balloon fight on another site and working on a post for a chemically altered chibified water nymphthing.
