  1. What about EDH politics? It depends on the group and the gameplay. People tend to target the one most likely to win, unless the game goes long. Otherwise, pillow fort is the most fun to play when you're just trying to play the game with no other objective. It is not really mine, since I like to play control decks that throw a bunch of combos out. Many different groups are also doing many different things, and a lot tend to be more relaxed than ones I have played in unless I am jumping in with a group I know nothing about.
  2. I just finished the anime and manga of Akame Ga Kill! I don't want to read Zero or the contiuation anime, as it is most likely caving to the audience. I need other things to watch or read now, beyond what I am already reading.

      Is Borges still your favorite author, Beatrice? I read most of his works, but fell in line with Italo Calvino who took a more postmodern- multi-dimensional narrative. I have to say that Toni Morrison is by far my favorite and most read author, which covers some magical realism (Beloved). Goethe hasn't been on my list much, probably even less than Melville.

      Yeah, but in regards to Borges and his peers, the ones you mention, I've arrived to and escaped from him through recommendations and other authors, like Schopenhauer or some detective fiction, which he breaks apart incredibly. 

      Borges is not my favorite (Ovid followed by Lucretius are), but I like him a lot. Goethe is one of the most important and excellent artists in the western tradition, I'd say far more important than anyone any of us have named minus perhaps Ovid, who was a major influence for Shakespeare and Dante among countless others. In regards to Toni Morrison I've only read Jazz five years ago and it was okay. I read a lot more poetry than actual novels.

      As I mentioned earlier, I have an Arthurian heart, so I tend to stick with traditional romances, Arthurian Romances, french romances, etc. It is my main area of study, along with genre theory. When it comes to the Western Tradition, the textual nature of it extends beyond just the major influences of Goethe, Shakespeare, Ovid. And the more interesting works of the Western Tradition extend into Literary Theory and forms of interpretation, at least where I stand in contention with how I interact with it.

      H.P. Lovecraft is an author I have been getting more into, but mostly his detective stories since they play games with the genre and parallel with his idea of the supernatural, weird fiction, and abject novels. It is what I am currently trying to understand, so "The Lurking Fear" is a big continuum for me.

      Though, I have been getting back into C. S. Lewis because of his Allegory of Love collection of essays. I tend to read a lot more works that relate to literature/poetry than novels/books themselves, now. I am still reading Umineko, just trying to find the Graphic Novels locally is tough.

  3. I get that it is racist to call the coronavirus the Kung Flu, but that is fucking hilarious and I love whoever thought of that.

  4. Guess it is perfect time to read through Umineko: When They Cry. I only have the first 4 volumes, though...

  5. Find a template? as you said, there is probably a tutorial. There is definitely a template. You're not looking hard enough.
  6. What kind of feedback do you want? I think you should continue writing this out, only to progress your ability to write. As of now, you're an average WattPad writer with Character inserts that is not presenting a literary story. That is fine, if that is what you want to do. However, any feedback given would be more up to the type of story you're trying to write out. If you are going to continue writing this story, I suggest you try and build an idea or a theme to work on rather than just details that can be put together in a narrative.

    This is funny,

  9. The biggest draw to the site is the Card Maker. Maybe once a fully functional one, the site might become more active. I don't see that since, it hasn't been functional since Arc-V and Link monsters; People figured out ways to make custom cards without it. Other sites are also better, community-wise.
  10. The site was shut off for a month literally a year ago, not 6 months. NeoCardMaker was made in response to this site being done for a month, which had just had its 1 year anniversary. YCM, after that, was done periodically during the 6 months the site was being upgraded; It wasn't even a month. And activity should have rose within the time span since then. It has only diminished. That, by itself, says how active this site is. If a revamping is not enough to inspire activity, the site is dead. 6 months is a lot of time for the site to grow. If a restaurant would have been revamped and diminished on return consumers, it would go out of business.
  11. YCM has been nothing but dying out. Even with YCMaker "doing things", the activity has diminished from even 6 months ago. This website is history.
  12. Ya'll people are smart for not voting for me.
  13. That's all fine. I would've thought that you would include yourself in something (since this was a serious conversation) rather than include me, if trying to create a "serious" discussion. I guess it is rewarding to see you value me, even as a bullshit choice, above whatever reality you would provide as mod.

    Haha, I hate my wives

    Is the marriage thing still a thing? I love this site.
  15. Lol who the fuck thinks I am deserving of mod. That's some top tier bullshit.
