  1. Seeing as I'm going into exile, can someone please lock or delete this, please? I prefer deletion, as I'd rather wipe all traces of me away.
  2. I'm the one who doesn't have dreams anymore. I had quite a few growing up, like designing video games, even some that carried through into my early adult years, like becoming a published writer. But I suppose with time comes the realization that none of them will ever happen, so now, I've pretty much written them all off as idiotic fantasies.
  3. I won't try to talk you out of leaving, nor will I encourage you to do so. The way I figure it is people will do what they've made up their minds to do. However, as someone who observed the general chaos, it was a matter of everything getting blown well out of proportion, not just by you, and not just by others. I don't think it's a good decision to leave just because of what amounts to a petty squabble over a minor issue. Seriously, we're fighting over a video game. Now, as someone who's committed himself to a personal exile from this place, I don't think everyone wants you gone. I know I don't. But in the end, it's up to you. Just don't make your decision in haste because sometimes, it can't be taken back, and I know this from experience.
  4. That's a bit interesting to me, since I don't really find Naesala all that sympathetic. Yes, there's the angle that he had no choice in a lot of his actions, but I also think that most of what he did, namely all his acts of piracy was of his own accord. I always thought him to be a slimeball, and even knowing what I did in Radiant Dawn, I still couldn't feel sorry for him.
  5. He is amusing, I'll give you that, but he's more suited to be a court jester than a knight. I know. I kind of wish more of the Royal Knights or Crimea in general got more screen time in RD. But still, great game as it was, but seeing it's Fire Emblem, I'm biased, especially towards Tellius. If I may just step in a bit, I do agree that Geoffrey can be a tad boring. I mean, I would have liked to have seen a little more to his character, beyond the chivalry. I wouldn't exactly call it obsession between him and Elincia myself, although I do agree that it seemed a bit weird that he can marry her having been raised as her brother, which he is in a sense. But in a larger context, it's probably best he married Elincia. Being queen, she'd be pressured to find a husband, and you can imagine everyone would be in line to try their hand at winning hers. Not to mention, most would be looking to their own self-interest. So, it could be seen as a way for him to protect her. But yeah, I can only imagine it would be very weird for both of them sleeping together, literally and otherwise. :P
  6. I can pretty much get behind this, although I wouldn't count Bastian among my favorites. He's a bit too weird for me. And Makalov is just an idiot so I can't really count him. I wouldn't say every part of the Crimean cast is my favorite, but there's so many good ones to choose. I like Elincia, especially how she becomes in RD. Let's face it, she learns to take nothing lying down, so I'd definitely pity the poor fool who'd ever even think of challenging her. Lucia is another favorite of mine, although mainly I like studying her character, since we get relatively little. And also among my list of favorites is Soren. The guy can be downright amusing without even trying to be, and you can just about hear the amount of snark in his voice just reading his lines. I also get a kick out of Gatrie, mainly because he's such a doofus when it comes to women, but does he ever try.
  7. Well, I'm coming out of exile just long enough to say, in good sport, congratulations. :) I may not be happy with it, and I'd be lying if I said I was. But even so, congratulations.
  8. Well, then call me a Philistine. XD
  9. It's hard for me to nail down my favorite character just because I have quite a few. Mainly, I like examining the characters I like, drilling down deep into them. I admit to being a fan of Elincia and Lucia, because they have such a close bond that nothing can shake, and if anyone had more of a right to be bitter, it's Lucia. But I also find a certain sadness to their relationship as well, just because of how it's had to change with Elincia taking the throne. I also like Elincia's development, especially in RD. She really gets shown exactly what she's made of, and I like that in a character. I'm also a fan of Soren, just for his attitude alone. He's the guy who can amuse you without ever intending to. I also admit to liking Chrom because I find his own struggle quite interesting, in that he, like Elincia, probably never wanted the throne, but he had to step up and become a king himself. To me, I find the unspoken tension in that situation intriguing. And there are plenty of others.
  10. They troll me just for the heck of it, it seems. I know I've got one little punk who enjoys letting me have it, and I suspect it's because one of my pieces wound up getting a little more exposure last year. I have the same opinion of 50 Shades as has been expressed, that it shouldn't have been published and that it's a complete piece of trash. Having said that, I was rather impressed when I read about its origins in the paper. I've considered trying to adapt some of my short pieces into a collection of short stories. But it'll never happen, and I'm okay with it. I'm still a little torn over it myself, my opinion on it. I love the writing process, tedious as it is, and I do enjoy taking characters even if they're not mine, and exploring scenarios that actually are mine. But in the grand scheme of things, I know this is all completely pointless. It was one thing when it was practice for bigger and better things, but now that it's just for its own sake, it just doesn't mean what it used to.
  11. Well, being a bit partial myself, I'd pick Felicia.
  12. Geoffrey looks like he's taking that in stride, but yeah, this would be very embarrassing. :P Looks good. :) I needed a good laugh, even if it does come at their expense.
  13. Eh, true, but with how she looks, most probably assume that's why I use her. Plus, in Revelation, she can't take as much near the end, at least I think so. I can agree on Donnel too. I mean, he takes a lot of TLC, but he's great once he promotes. I made him a bow knight, and wow, was he good. I guess another of my guilty pleasures is Sumia. Maybe it's just me, but I see a lot of dislike for her, and I fail to see why. When paired up with Chrom, she was one half of my dream team. Rarely anything could touch either of them, so I certainly think she's solid as a unit, and what can I say, I find her likable.
  14. Been a while since I played Fire Emblem in general, but I do know one of my 'guilty pleasure' units is Lucia. Is she the best unit? All evidence says no, and yeah, her availability in Radiant Dawn means she'll be outmatched, but she's always worked well for me. Give her Alondite in the finale, and I had her killing dragons with no problem, and dragons are tough. Camilla would be another one. No, not because of the obvious fan service design, but because I genuinely think she's an interesting character. Yeah, gameplay wise, I can do better, but I like her.
  15. I watched until the third Pens' goal, and then I changed the channel. Needless to say, I've pretty much given up hope on them getting out of this round. >_<
